Echoes of the vituperations of Taiwo, one of the estranged wives of former President Olusegun Obasanjo and perennial newsmaker, in the run up to her sonâ€™s wedding to the daughter of Kessington Adebutu, still reverberate.
The fiery woman had written to the Methodist Church of Nigeria that if the wedding, fixed for May 11 and 13 held, it would be heralded by plane crashes, fire incidents, multiple road accidents, tankers and trailers killing people; cancers, diseases of kidney, liver, prostrate, eyes issues and more. According to her, â€œThe two dates were chosen and compelled by Satan for them to lure unsuspecting numerous souls to a banquet of death that will result in strange holocaust in our nation. After the wedding, you will be hearing and seeing incidents of plane crashes, fire incidents, multiple road accidents, tankers and trailer killing people, cancers, diseases of kidney, liver, prostrate, eyes issues and diverse health problem causing strange death in people and the economy situation will worsen.â€ While revealing that she was not against the wedding but only wanted the date postponed until after June 1, the ceremonies eventually held on the proposed dates. More than a month after, Taiwo said, â€œI have forgiven them as a praying mother.
You cannot justify before God not forgiving those who offended you. I have been praying for a forgiving spirit, and itâ€™s already done. Itâ€™s not something l want to be reminded of. It was a big pain that l donâ€™t want to remember or talk about anymore.â€ She added, â€œI have forgiven everybody and l want everyone to forgive me. The couple has apologised to me and I have forgiven my daughter-in-law too.â€
