Former President Obasanjo's Son shot In Mubi By Boko Haram by Nobody: 7:10pm On Sep 08, 2014
Obasanjo, an army engineer, was a Lieutenant
Colonel at the 3rd Division in Jos, Plateau State.

Boko Haram militants attacked a platoon led by the
son of former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo,
shooting him today. He sustained serious injuries to his
legs and was being transported to the hospital at the
time of this report.

Adeboye Obasanjo, an army engineer, was a Lieutenant
Colonel at the 3rd Division in Jos, Plateau State.

He and his platoon were engaged with Boko Haram
militants at Baza, which is the village of the General
Officer Commanding (GOC) of the 3rd division when the
incident took place. The Lieutenant Agwu of the 234
battalion, GOC of the 3rd Division, Major Gen JS
Zaruwa and Colonel Victor Ebhaleme who serves as the
Brigade Commander of the 23rd Army brigade in Yola
were all together advancing towards Michika when
Boko Haram fighters unleashed the deadly attack on
the soldiers.

24 soldiers in the platoon were reportedly killed by the
militants.

Apart from the dead soldiers, the army also lost an
armored tank to the militants. As a result of the attack,
the army has moved sensitive weapons from mubi to
the Brigade headquarters in Yola leaving mubi
vulnerable to attack. The town of Mubi has practically
been deserted following the closure of schools and
massive retreat of soldiers from the city.

The former president is currently traveling in Singapore
according to family sources.
