Awolowo :The Real Cause Of Death (photos) by Donald95(m): 11:59am On Jun 22, 2019
He died in Ikenne town (Ogun State) at the age of 78 years.

For many years it was believed that Chief Awolowo died because of natural death. But in recent years, many online publications, referring to the words of the former statesmen and close to the late Papa Awo people, posted information that he committed self-murder. And, moreover, Obafemi Awolowo was pushed to this awful step. Let's try to find out what led to the death of Chief Obafemi Awolowo.


A probable cause of death

Some reports alleged that Papa Awo committed self-murder because he wanted to stop the probable growth of military tribunal into an uprising. Chief Awolowo was going to drive it with his political allies. The main reason was the intention of General Ibrahim Babangida, Nigerian Military President, to keep the helm of the country for life at that time. Obafemi Awolowo planned to remove Ibrahim Babangida from power with the help of armed people insurrection.

But, unfortunately, one of the participants in that campaign betrayed them and handed the record of the conspiracy to the military.
When everything was revealed, General Babangida held a meeting to Chief Awolowo and threatened him with prison and exile. Then Papa Awo allegedly decided to commit self-murder instead of spending the rest of his life in prison.

But before that, Obafemi Awolowo gathered his ‘comrades-in-arms’ again. At that meeting, the name of their traitor was revealed. According to Nigerian politician Mr Adebayo Adeyinka, it was Chief Lateef Jakande, the former Executive Governor of Lagos State. Although Jakande denied his guilt, the evidence was against him. To tell the truth, the former Governor still denies that they had any disagreements with Papa Awo.
Later Chief Awolowo took poison, but the public was told that he had died in the bathroom while brushing his teeth

The most widely accepted theory is that he drank rat poison. Is this true?

Someone told me the rat poison he took was even an expired one, which made his death more painful.

Don't mind him, him as a betrayer was working with group of betrayers and expecting a success?

Which people would have even carried out his plan sef?? Igbo's will never stand by him to carry arms against Even the devil, Hausa's will always stand for their own, Can Yoruba people divided among Christian and Muslim carry it out?

That was a plan that failed right from start

He is the grand patron of cowards in Nigeria that see Suicide as option instead of taking responsibility of their action. Shamefull

Some months back, I created a thread "who gave Internet to the igbos". It drew criticism as well as acceptance.
Ultimately, a mod deleted the thread. I wasn't banned however, to show that I flouted no rules.

Now see what this thread is about..

Hahaha, it is quite a shame that their hero shamefully went to his room hid under the bed and opened a satchet of expired rat poison into his mouth, shitting all over the place causing air pollution. What a shame

Osinbajo met with Wike 2 days ago.. These are the people abusing and cursing themselves before the elections.

Life is beautiful than not to be useful to the society..

What benefit did we as a citizen gain from him interacting with white men. Is it Looting our money b4 and after the war or Starving our Children?

Osibanjo and his APC croons needs to make peace with Wike because they badly need oil money to sponsor their Fulani jihadists

Guy, go back to your history bro. Awolowo as finance minister stole Our money dry.

Wike is controlling heavy oil money which Nigeria has proven time without number they cannot do without, so, they have no option than to keep trying to deceive him like they did to Akpabio

Maybe Awolowo took strong weed that took him to another dimension where he believed that Afonjis will work with him without selling him to their master IBB
