Chief Obasanjo Truly An Igbo Man
A popular rumour about Chief Olusegun Obasanjo’s roots and genetics have resurfaced again. A historian narrated that the former head of state might juts be the son of the great Igwe Onyejekwe of Onitsha due to the striking resemblance.
The middle age man, Damilade Abdul Oladele, has insisted that the former head of State and President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo is a native of Onitsha in Anambra State, and not from Owu in Ogun State.
Igwe Onyejekwe was reported to have lived in Owu in Ogun State, as a police officer around the time the former President was born.
Igwe Onyejekwe of Onitsha that ruled from 1962- 1970″
“He lived in Abeokuta for years before being recalled home to be made King”
“He also lived in Owu, at the time Olusegun Obasanjo (OBJ) was born, but Obasanjo has debunked that he was born by this late Igbo King of Onitsha”
“Obi Onyejekwe was a policeman in Owu in the early 1940’s and Obasanjo’s mother allegedly was a live-in concubine”
The similarity between the two men is striking.
