Olayinka Omigbodun: Ojukwu, Who Ordered My Father’s Execution Was His Friend by sarrki(m): 8:46am On Oct 26, 2019
Ojukwu, the man who ordered my father’s execution was his friend –Prof Omigbodun, daughter of Col. Banjo

Olayinka Omigbodun is the immediate-past Head of Psychiatry, College of Medicine, University of Ibadan and an honorary consultant in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to the University College Hospital, Ibadan. The pioneering director at the university’s Centre for Child and Adolescent Mental Health, which started with funding from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, tells ALEXANDER OKERE about motivation, career and family

For how long have you been a professor and how would you describe your experience as an academic?

I became a professor on October 1, 2008; that was 11 years ago. I actually qualified as a psychiatrist in 1991 but the university would not give me a job. Fortunately, my husband got a fellowship position in the United States in 1993, so I travelled to the US with the family. I did not take up an academic position with the university until I returned in 1997. It has been very eventful since I started working at the University of Ibadan. I started my career in child and adolescent psychiatry in 1986 as a resident under the tutelage of (the late) Prof Michael Oludare Olatawura and did part of my residency in Nigeria and the United Kingdom.

Were you educated in Nigeria?

I started nursery school in Lagos at the Adrao International School, Victoria Island, Lagos. I was living with my parents at that time in Lagos. My father was in the army at the time and my mother was a housewife. My mother was a Sierra Leonean and my father was a Nigerian. We left for Sierra Leone a day before the civil war broke out. In Sierra Leone, I attended the Holy Rosary Primary School, Kenema, about 300 miles from Freetown. I was there for two years before we moved to Freetown, where I attended St. Anne’s Primary School for one year. When the war ended in 1970, we returned with my mum to Nigeria and I attended the Staff School, University of Ibadan.

I spent three years at the school before I moved to St. Louis Grammar School, Mokola, Ibadan. Then I had my advanced levels for two years at the International School, University of Ibadan, and gained admission to UI through direct entry to study Medicine and Surgery in 1980. In 1990, one of my senior professors, Olabisi Odejide, asked me whether I would like to have some exposure abroad; that was when I moved to England. I lived in Lancaster and worked at the Lancaster Moor Hospital. I was also at the Queen’s Park Hospital, in Blackburn. I obtained a diploma in Psychiatry from the Victorian University of Manchester in 1992. While I was in the UK, I flew into Nigeria for my final fellowship examinations in the West African College of Physicians in the Faculty of Psychiatry and the National Postgraduate College of Medicine in Psychiatry in 1991. By 1993, I was in the US at the Department of Family Studies, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, training and working as a family and relationship therapist. I also did some research in the Bipolar Disorders Unit. I must say that having training exposure on three continents really enriched me.


Was it a personal decision to study Psychiatry?

Yes. When I got to medical school, I thought I would do paediatrics. However, on the first day of my rotation at the paediatrics ward, I decided that I could not do it anymore because seeing sick children was too traumatic for me and I didn’t think I would be able to handle them. So, I took my mind of that specialty until I got to the Psychiatry rotation; it was wonderful. I was fascinated by patients who had mental health conditions; some of them heard the voices of people they could not see while some were very depressed. I remember meeting a man who was partially paralysed because he had fallen from a three-storey building when he was depressed and had attempted suicide.


I met interesting patients with different stories. I also found that in psychiatry, we don’t just deal with a part of the body but with the whole patient, with their family and community and work; in psychiatry, we learned to carry out holistic assessments of patients and their families and I found this very interesting. It was in-depth work.

It’s so unfortunate that the same people that calls one a betrayer are the real betrayers

The 1966 coup and 1990 coup are the only the bloodiest coup in history of Nigeria

Led by kaduna nzeogwu 1966 and orkar 1990

Ojukwu did the right thing by killing the traitor.


Someone he saved and released from prison and sent home arrived Ore and feels he is at home to backstab his benefactor.

Banjo is a dirty betrayal.

Ojukwu made his greatest mistake here, he would have allowed banjo rot in prison the way hausa fulani government then wanted it to be.


Banjo is a backstabber, betrayal and a traitor.

His daughter should just shut up..

You can’t change the hand of the clock

Ojukwu is a traitor

So are his descendants

Nigeria would have been better if there was no 1966 Coup or if the Coup was not bloody. Why did we kill ourselves? Power can change hands without blood. Buhari became Head of State without shedding blood. I'm not IBB fan but his Coup was bloodless and I commend him for not killing GMB and Idiagbon. I must confess, we were celebrating my sister's birthday in April 1990 when we heard of Orka's Coup, the jubilation became double, and people were trooping in with emergency gifts for her..... But shortly after we heard about the killing of IBB ADC and others and the guy started dividing the country on radio, people were sad. Why killing others to get power? 90% of bloody coups in Nigeria failed!!!

We can play politics of power without shedding blood, those who introduced blood to our politics will account for their wickedness on the day of judgment!

Banjo is a dirty betrayal and a traitor.

The woman talking wasn't there and too young by them to know how dirty her father was.

I have told people that if you think you can poke your benefactors without consequences, then the person is a joke.

Awolowo tried it , he died regretting his deeds.

Today you can't call awolowo without adding rat poison...he set a bad precedence for the future generations.

I can't use the account of 2 year old child of banjo now a professor who doesn't know what actually happened as a parameter to real facts.

She is just been emotional.


But the great General Ojukwu has to do the right thing to restore sanity about to be eroded by Victor Banjo.


Without Ojukwu banjo would have died in prison and his chapter closed.


Banjo was a bad influence to his lineage same way Naira marley is currently constituting nuisance to cyber space.

#Ojukwu learnt his lesson never to trust someone from that side of divide.

Two persons he saved from prison are those who aligned with the enemies to hit him.


Very unfortunate.

He did not allow his people to be massacred because of pride , ego and chest beating

The woman first hand information is riddled with lies and fabrications.

How can a 2 year old child or even not up by then give a first hand info.

What does she know by then? She only said he received letters which we all know are just doctored to real situations of things.

The woman should face her academic life and allow her father rest in peace which I doubt Banjo has found peace even to this day in hell.

Banjo was never a good man but a snake.

A sound mind needs to be suspicious of any institution set up by awolowo or named after him.

Nothing exist in such settings except lies, deceit and all sorts of evil vices dished out to unsuspecting students to gain relevance.


I might as well add that introduction of tribal politics was part of his early free education scheme.
