Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, has said that he never used his late wife, Stella for rituals as some have speculated. Some rumour-monger accused the ex-President of having a hand in his wife’s death to promote his stay in office.
The late First Lady died in 2005 while undergoing a cosmetic surgery in Spain. She was said to have embarked on the surgery to look more beautiful for her 60th birthday.
Speaking on the late Stella’s death in his new controversial autobiography, ‘My Watch’, Obasanjo explained that he didn’t know that his late wife was planning to undergo a tummy tuck to mark her 60th birthday anniversary.
On page 240 in Volume two of his book, Obasanjo said it was after she had died on October 23, 2005 in Spain that he found out what really killed her.
“After the internment, I decided to look into the circumstances of her death. I found that part of her 60th birthday anniversary, which was unknown to me, was her operation for her tummy and her shape,” the former President said in his book.
Pbasanjo said through the help of the Nigerian Embassy in Spain, he was able to get justice for his wife, who according to him, died due to the cosmetic surgeon’s carelessness.
“I instructed that the doctor and the clinic be prosecuted. The lost life cannot be brought back but the successful prosecution would prevent carelessness and loss of life in the future,” he further wrote.
He said the doctor was made to pay damages which was collected by Olu, Stella’s only child and the doctor’s license withdrawn.
“Before the verdict in Spain, I was unaware of what I came to hear later that I might have caused the death of my wife to sacrifice her for success in my job. That is how wicked and satanic some Nigerians can be in their rumours and mischief,” he also wrote.
