Obasanjo downs ‘Reconciliation with Gani Adams’ Reports

Obasanjo downs ‘Reconciliation with Gani Adams’ Reports (Updated: 1 year ago)


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has shot down reports of “reconciliation” with Aare Ona Kakanfo, Gani Adams.

The “peace meeting” was purportedly held on Wednesday in Lagos.

In a statement by spokesman, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo said his visit to a Yoruba leader, Ayo Adebanjo, was not a reconciliatory one.

“It is true that I paid a personal visit to Chief Ayo Adebanjo at his residence in Lekki Phase 1 on December 2, 2020 and I met Gani Adams there.

“I have no quarrel with Gani Adams, but for his past way of life, which was not in accord with my standards and principles.

“I have in the past, both in government and out of government, refused to grant Gani’s request to visit me.

“If at all anybody feels I have a quarrel with him or her that needs reconciliation, such reconciliation will, no doubt, take place in my residence in Abeokuta only,” Obasanjo said.

In 2001 when Obasanjo was in power, the police arrested Adams, then National Coordinator of the Odua Peoples Congress (OPC).

He was taken into custody more than one year after former Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Mike Okiro, declared him wanted for the alleged murder of Afolabi Amao.

Amao was the Divisional Police Officer of Bariga police station in Lagos.

Adams was also accused of culpability in violent ethnic clashes in the South-West. Authorities insisted the OPC played a major role.

He, who still has a huge followership in Yorubaland, was at different times remanded in prisons in Lagos, Abeokuta and Abuja, the nation’s capital.
