Wife debunks Olujonwo Obasanjo’s Assault Allegations, Accuses him of Infidelity, Emotional & Verbal Abuse | See Counter-Affidavit



A counter-affidavit, filed in court by Tope Adebutu, a magistrate in Ogun state and wife of Olujonwo Obasanjo, son of former president Olusegun Obasanjo, has surfaced.

Olujonwo had approached an Igbosere Magistrate’s Court in Lagos, saying that shortly after the wedding ceremony, he suffered from physical assaults by his wife as well as threats from his wife, adding that he has had to leave his matrimonial home as he feared for his life. He called on the court to intervene and help prevent further attacks. See the document HERE.

In this counter-affidavit, Tope refuted allegations of assault against her, while accusing Olujonwo of cheating on her, saying he hasn’t agreed to consummate their marriage.

She alleged that she was lonely at their honeymoon destination for five days while Olujonwo was in a Lagos hotel “in the company of other women”.

She also added that Olujonwo was checked into a drug rehabilitation facility from the end of January 2018 to the second week of March and that when his mother didn’t know where he was, alleged that he was missing, and “cause to be published, defamatory publications against” her in two national dallies.

She also debunked Olujonwo’s claim that she was on anti-depressants, saying the only medical condition she had after their marriage was uterine fibroid which she said she had treated.

She said Olujonwo deserted her for over four months but only came back in March 2018 to ask that they be separated.

    If a couple don’t want to be married no more, go your separate ways in peace. This public show of shame isn’t necessary. After all the claims of infidelity, drug use, bipolar disorder, physical abuse etc, the relationship won’t be mended. This just gives room for tabloid fodder.

    Mudslinging…maybe he should have revealed minimum. What he wrote n revealed was deeply personal and negative. This was to be expected. Why did they have to marry in the first place, and why would she want a child with a drug addict and a cheat? Low self esteem is a horrible thing.

      Let’s not be cruel or insensitive. Whatever issues they have, they are both human and deserve some happiness
      If their pursuit of happiness as a couple is not yielding the expected result, let us pray they forgive one another and their next pursuit bring happiness

    Ghen ghen! Which one are we to believe now? Please go your separate ways and leave us in peace. Only God knows the real truth. May He judge accordingly.

    So IF the wife is telling the truth, that means her husband is a cheat, a liar and most likely wants out of the marriage because of the likelihood of inability to have a child because of her uterine fibroid. It also means his mother is the typical monster-in-law.

    When the mother went as far as suing you all to court to postpone the marriage, you should have run away. Ladies would never learn.

    That is IF she’s telling the truth

      What sort of reasoning is the monster in law theory here…….
      the woman should even be applauded because she saw all these mess ahead and tried to forestall it. but all parties did not hear. The only issue i had with her was her approach to the matter.

      their is absolutely nothing surprising in this matter,. Both children are most likely spoilt kids and have little or no patience to deal with an institution as complicated as marriage between two rich families.

      This is what happens when ladies just want to have children for rich men because you see them as meal tickets or social ladders. In old age you wonder if it is good. Both mothers were not able to stay to train their kids properly.

      All of you waiting to birth for Davido, wizkid, 2baba etc’s be aware of the risks involved. Yes they will pay child support, later when the kids are old enough they will want to be identified with their big man fathers so as to earn that “rich man’s kid” title.

    Bellanaija commentators and their over-sabi attitude. Everyone trying to analyse the issue. Only those close to the couple and of course the couples themselves know what has really transpired. Just say a prayer for them.

    Like, don’t you guys get tired of trying to analyse people’s lives? You should have learnt from when the mother didn’t want the marriage to hold… and you guys were all over the comment section saying she was deluded and all.. and now this happened.

    Have a nice day all.

    It’s sad that things like this happen. I do not take sides with either of them but I must blame this lady, my reason is… the guys mother went out of her way to stop the wedding, that is a major red flag, all she listed above did not happen in just one year, she must have seen the red flags but she chose to ignore them. What was the attraction? Did she hate herself so much to put up with this behaviour even before the wedding? Men don’t change overnight. I believe she must have seen the red flags but ignored them. Bottom line…women, we are wiser, but we do not tell ourselves the truth. If I may ask, why did she still want to get pregnant with a drug addict? Why was she holding on to a marriage filled with emotional abuse? You want to stay married to a man who missed his own honey moon? A man that called you fat and ugly? Na wa o…ladies receive sense abeg!!!

      Thank you joor. She probably just wanted children. Too many red flags before the wedding. Did they even date at all?

    Tbh, this just makes her look worse.
    She’s the only one that wants to stay in marriage with an accused drug addict and cheat who is verbally abusive. Lady get the picture he does not want to be with you, move on. If you two did not have sex yet. Is that not a red flag, that he’s not feeling you? He called you, fat ugly, cancer etc. Yet you seemingly wanted to work the marriage out.

    A ma wa ri nkan oh (what is this one again, which one are we to now believe?). I find it hard to believe the marriage remains unconsummated. If that’s the case, that alone sef is grounds for divorce. That’s why you can’t blame pastors who ensure the groom has secured accommodation for he and his bride (even if it’s self-contained) before marrying. Living in a bedroom in OBJ’s house. Can you imagine? A full grown man. This is too much for a marriage that is only about a year old. Well, I hope they are able to get what they each desire and move on with their lives. The earlier the better.

    Please mother in law, let go of the umbilical cord. Your son is a grown man. Even if his allegations are true, you should be trying to help them resolve it, not making things worse and turning yourself into an alaroka on behalf of your son. Ahn-han! He’s probably a spoiled brat, you know that “one” in the family that one or both parents have spoiled so tey they have ruined his/her life. Some of our parents are the reason behind their children’s woes!

    ***Please if it’s true that he had girlfriends, can any of them come and attest to it anonymously?

    Oro agba ti ko ba se ni osan a se ni ale ( My loose interpretation- the words of the elders always come to pass).

    Thiis it the same wedding the groom’s mom was firmly against a few months ago. People we calling the woman names now she is completely vindicated. smh.
