Obasanjo's Son BellaNaijaThe son of former president Olusegun Obasanjo was reportedly shot by Boko Haram in Mubi, Adamawa today.

Adebayo Obasanjo, who is an army engineer and was a Lieutenant Colonel at the 3rd Division in Jos, Plateau State, was shot when Boko Haram attacked a platoon he was leading in Mubi, Adamawa, according to Sahara Reporters.

His legs were badly injured, and he has been taken to the hospital.

The terrorists are said to have killed 24 soldiers in the platoon. In addition, the militants seized one of the platoon’s armored tanks.

Obasanjo’s current condition is unknown.

Earlier today, Adamawa State University in Mubi was shut down indefinitely for security reasons following Boko Haram’s take over of Gulak town.

    So sad, GEJ is behaving like a typical nigerian, praying and waiting for boko haram to magically go away, wake up people, pray from now till next year boko haram aint going no where, the more u ignore them, they stronger and more powerful they become. A word is enough for the wise.

      I sure hope so! Now that the have targeted a prominent name, maybe Obasanjo can help oust those fellow big men both in and outside that are funding and supporting Boko Haram? Trust me, they all know who is involved and are fine with it as long as their families are not targeted. May I suggest one of Jonathan’s kids next, that might help wake him up.

      Am sorry for you…..have you forgotten so quickly how many times he advised Uncle Jona on what to do but they applied sentiments and accused him of not being sincere.Where as its your president and his co-horts that are not being sincere.

      Why is the USA,Britain etc that wanted to help backing out.Why are they no longer helping……ordinary cmeroon refused to share intelligence with us…..yet your president is asking for money to by what is not.

      God dey and he will surely punish those involved and those that can do something to help and refused to.

    mayb, just mayb, now that the son of a once-was president has been attacked by these animals in the form of human, they will take serious actions to curb them and hopefully stop all these senseless killing…i am in no way happy this has befallen the obasanjos bc eveil is evil no matter who it visits, but just mayb now, ” they ” will pay serious attention to them n find ways to resolve them bc they r getting close…i mean to “them”

      …. “and nobody seem to be on the run” (or taking the right actions)
      This is how kidnapping started only in the South South and we all kept quiet saying it was only white oil workers and it was only in the SS… now every corner of the country records kidnapping even for recharge card.

    About 16 soldiers lost their lives in the ambush and all they saw fit to use as headlines is that Obasanjo’s son was injured?? Guess his life is more important than that of all the soldiers who have died in this battle against insurgency.

    if only our top northern politicians and militocrats (IBB,buhari and abdulsalam)can demonstrate these kind of nationalistic fervor and love for this country by sending their children to the battlefront to face Bh,this insurgency would have ended,kudos to obj
