It appeared that former President Olsegun Obasanjo mourned alive his lovely son, Gbenga Obasanjo on Thursday October 4, 2013, when his (Gbenga) rumoured death in the Akure bound Chattered Associated Airline which crashed in Lagos circulated like wild fire.
Obasanjo who clad in a white flowing Agbara with blue cap as a guest at a leadership training programme for young leaders held at Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Kuto, Abeokuta, received the news during a photo session with schools pupils who had come for the programme.
Vanguard who was at the event observed that the former president received many calls during the session while the expression on his face was an indication that something was wrong.
Obasanjo was seen shivering and shaking shortly after he received the rumoured news, but comported himself and gently left the venue.
During the conversation with one of his callers, Obasanjo loudly said ‘which Gbenga , but, he is in Abuja’
Holding the hands of one of his closest friends, Prof. Akin Mabogunje they went straight into a room within the Library complex where they spent almost one hour.
Reprieve however came to Obasanjo when he was alleged to have spoken to his son, Gbenga, with confirmation that he was hale and hearty. It is well Baba, your Son will live a Long Life By God’s grace
