Adamawa Acting Gov. visits Obasanjo’s son shot by Boko Haram

Adeboye Obasanjo,

Adamawa Acting Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri on Tuesday commended officers and men of the Nigerian Army for their effort in containing insurgency in the state.

Mr. Fintiri lauded the armed forces when he visited Adeboye Obasanjo, son of former President Olusegun Obasanjo who was shot Monday by Boko Haram militants.

The younger Obasanjo is recuperating from injuries at the Federal Medical Centre, Yola after the attack.

He sustained injuries in a battle to repel Boko Haram insurgents in Bazza town of Michika Local Government Area of the state.

Mr. Fintiri was received at the hospital by the Chief Medical Director, Aliyu Danburam, who said Mr. Obasanjo was recuperating and in stable condition.

Meanwhile, transport fares have sky rocketed in Adamawa State following the mass movement of people from the northern part of the state to other parts as a result of threats from the insurgents.

Our correspondent reports that transport fare from Mubi to Yola has risen by 400 per cent.

“We used to pay N1, 000 from Mubi, but today I paid N5, 000,” said Aliyu Buba, a student from Mubi.

    OK, because is a big man son ! What of other solders that where main and killed ! Shame unto you !!

    • Wähala

      Just up dia!
      It is the current President who should be visiting the ex-President’s son in the hospital since his son is not staking his life for Nigeria… so, the shame should be on the current President for visiting wounded soldiers, prominent sons or not. He is instead, hobnobbing with the sponsors of same insurgents who shot the ex-President’s son in the butt in faraway Chad. What a sham Presidency indeed, that’s where the shame stops… or ???

      • the truth

        Keep wining.he is still your president.go hang yourself.u didn’t know all these while sheriff was a sponsor of boko haram.y didn’t u say so 2 months ago.are u watching Davies interview currently on abc.I hope premium times carries the excerpts.if u don’t know boko haram is apc.Davies has more to say.continue to wallow in foolishness.

        • Wähala

          Mumu, read Lai Mohammed’s statement again and guess for yourself who the real sponsors of Boko Haram are… Ali Modu Sheriff came along so they can talk about stopping the funds and arms flow to the insurgents. I don’t care about what Davis says anymore, Dumbo could’ve put the squeeze on him using his usual blackmail tactics, for me, the cat’s already gone… whoever is behind the BH, I’m sure we will at least agree that it’s incumbent upon your moron to arrest, prosecute and punish the culprits… Or???

            Lai mohammed is the name of a shameless and overzealohs jounalist who has thrown caution to the wind in order to eek out aliving from mostly tainted charaters in the garb of dirty politics.

            The PDP as a party is one million times better than the APC who always play out the bad cards about people the day they leave their party. The sainthood of all such persons siezes from the next immediate one hour.

            Wahala, unfortunately is an unapologetically recruited hand by the HFM part owners of the APC who are bent on taking power by force to change green to white when it is glarinly otherwise

        like father like son,lazy soldier,how can a commanding officer lose 24
        men to a rag tag boko haram army,this is d same manner his father led
        some troops to perish during the civil war.he was enrolled into the army
        to enjoy,probably his father must have enrolled him into the military
        to become a milad and other military political post,thinking that the
        military will forever be a pepper soup drinking organization,but
        unfortunately times have changed.Instead of admitting his failure and
        lack of intelligence in d battle field,the yorubas have find treacherous
        ways of making him an instant hero aided by d press,i am even tempted
        to believe that he shot himself with Dane gun

    No matter what happens. .. this shows that olusegun obasanjo still believes In the project nigeria…. he fought for the survival of the nation and his son is doing the same… if not for his dishonesty, he would have been the best president we ever had. Obasanjo is one of the few nigerians that dont play the tribal game, he’s a true leader, and with all ds jonathan and bad leaders we have around, I still respect obasanjo for being a strong leader.

    • emmanuel

      Good leader koo, good leader ni! Good dishonest leader?

      You must be a dishonest person for real. Obasanjo should ne in jail by now like his Israeli counterparts if not for people like you who populate this nation.

      It takes established norms and instituted itolerance to corruption for a nation to stand strong, unfortunately, you seem to lack it

    It’s just a pity that nigerians wasted their lives everyday when we have the power to change/re-write the wrongs for the better country but our dear GEJ choose to play politics with the lives of the citizens, when are we going to wake up and realise that, it’s all ochestrated by GEJ himself an his power hungry men. We need a change for the safety of all.

    • emmanuel

      Change to wetin? to the same set of vampires who got us to where we are?

      Nigeria presidency is no more for cattle rearrer -migrants from Chad, Niger, Cameroun or Mali. Biko!

  • emmanuel

    Na God dey warn Obasanjo, if not may be Boko for don mow down im pickin. Qnyway, e for nor pain am, afterall he teach for Sunday School the day Stella die before e break the news.

    He is part of those who created Nigeria problems, yet he comes out to castigate the one on whose shoulders decades of bad and reckless leadership has thrown the insurgencies.
