Former President Obasanjo’s Son Shot In Mubi By Boko Haram

1

Boko Haram militants attacked a platoon led by

the son of former Nigerian President Olusegun

Obasanjo, shooting him today. He sustained

serious injuries to his legs and was being

transported to the hospital at the time of this

report.

Adeboye Obasanjo, an army engineer, was a

Lieutenant Colonel at the 3rd Division in Jos,

Plateau State.

He and his platoon were engaged with Boko

Haram militants at Baza, which is the village of the

General Officer Commanding (GOC) of the 3rd

division when the incident took place. The

Lieutenant Agwu of the 234 battalion, GOC of the

3rd Division, Major Gen JS Zaruwa and Colonel

Victor Ebhaleme who serves as the Brigade

Commander of the 23rd Army brigade in Yola

were all together advancing towards Michika

when Boko Haram fighters unleashed the deadly

attack on the soldiers.

24 soldiers in the platoon were reportedly killed

by the militants.

Apart from the dead soldiers, the army also lost

an armored tank to the militants. As a result of

the attack, the army has moved sensitive

weapons from mubi to the Brigade headquarters

in Yola leaving mubi vulnerable to attack. The

town of Mubi has practically been deserted

following the closure of schools and massive

retreat of soldiers from the city.

The former president is currently traveling in

Singapore according to family sources.
