Urban Life in a new exclusive report has revealed how Obasanjo’s son Juwion who recently married Chief Kessington Adebutu popularly known as Baba Ijebu’s daughter, allegedly disappeared for 5 days after the wedding without any explanation.
Their wedding, albeit superlative, was marred with controversy from day one, when it was announced to the public.
First, it was the resistance of the groom’s mother, Mrs. Taiwo Obasanjo, who insisted on a postponement of the wedding, for spiritual reasons; and even went to court to make good her intention. But this was not to be, as the wedding went on as planned; as her case was thrown out, perhaps due to the status of the couple’s individual fathers, former President Olusegun Obasanjo and billionaire businessman, Chief Kessington Adebutu, popularly known as Baba Ijebu.
The wedding came and held as usual, but what transpired shortly after the reception still leaves much to be desired, as the groom, Olujonwo Obasanjo,allegedly suddenly disappeared into thin air for five consecutive days, apparently avoiding an already-planned honeymoon with his beautiful bride, Temitope Adebutu (now Mrs. Temitope Obasanjo.)
It was as if the young Obasanjo was trying to play the script of his mother, who had initially kicked against the wedding of her son to Baba Ijebu’s daughter. We gathered from a very close source that Jonwo, no sooner than the rites of the marriage were concluded on May 13, than he was said scampered out of the venue for an undisclosed place, which later turned out to be the posh Inter Continental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, where he spent good five days, allegedly in the comfort of other women. While in the hotel, Jonwo was said to have switched off all his phones to avoid any communication with his immediate family and possibly those of his new wife, who were everywhere looking frantically for him, in anticipation of the planned honeymoon.
This so much angered the bride’s family, especially the bride’s father, who obviously felt embarrassed and ridiculed by the shoddy behavior of his new son-in-law. But the situation was quelled when after five days of disappearance, Jonwo suddenly showed up with no plausible reason for his disappearing act, and the two are now said to be in Monaco (France) for a two-week honeymoon, well over a month after their roller-coaster wedding.
Son of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and the daughter of billionaire mogul behind Premier lotto, Sir Kessington Adebutu, are having the time of their lives in the fun island of Monaco. Insiders revealed this much that the couple left a few days ago, and planned to spend two weeks in Monaco to catch their breaths and know each other more. “They are at Monte Carlo Beach Hotel,” an insider divulged.
News of the postponement of their honeymoon reached us a week ago with sources claiming that they were planning a July trip to the United Kingdom because of their busy schedules. But at the last minute, they opted for the Monaco trip. The wedding of Baba Iyabo’s son and Baba Ijebu’s daughter was loudly announced with controversy. The mother of the groom (Mrs. Taiwo Obasanjo) had sought postponement in court and written the Methodist Church to this effect. But the wedlock went ahead without hitches.
The Thursday, May 11, traditional engagement at Balmoral Hall, on the grounds of Federal Palace Hotel on Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island (Lagos), was as colourful as it was lavish; while the holy solemnization held on Saturday, May 13, at the Methodist Church of the Trinity and the reception followed at the Convention Centre of Eko Hotel. Introduced by Chief Kenny Martins, the goom’s mother’s twin brother, the lovebirds staged a high-octane nuptial, courtesy of their wealthy and influential parents. And in no time the controversies became history as the groom’s mother admitted much later in an interview that she has forgiven all. While Olujonwo works in one of his father’s many companies in Abeokuta (Ogun state), Temitope is a magistrate with the Ogun State government. What will however remain topical is how the groom, Jonwo, would just decide to stage such a disappearing act few hours after he was joined to his wife.
