Irate Nigerian Man Rains Punches On Obasanjo At Lagos Airport

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo
By SaharaReporters, New York

Earlier today former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo received a dose of the widespread hatred in which ordinary Nigerians hold him, when  a man forced his way into his car. The angry Nigerian believed to be in his 40s forced his way into his car, grabbed him by his "Agbada" and pummeled with vicious punches.

 The event took place near the Presidential lounge of the Murtala Mohammed Airport in Lagos.  Two eyewitness sources told Saharareporters that the attack on Obasanjo took place shortly after Obasanjo entered his car at MMIA following his return from a trip.

The Sources said Mr. Obasanjo was saved by airforce personel on security duty at the airport. As the man was being pulled away, he was heard cursing Obasanjo that "God will punish for all his crimes against Nigerians."

 A police source told Saharareporters that when Obj assailant was brought into the police station and asked by interrogator, "are you crazy", the man replied, " if you say I am crazy what would you say about Obasanjo."

The man then further asked the police interrogator, whether (he) the assailant was the one the looted the funds of Nigeria, rigged elections and slept with his son's wife"
 
 Police authorities are detaining the man claiming that they are investigating his state of mental health.

His bad side is greater...

0BJ is a wicked and maliscious man actually, he tried to compasate us by benching atiku and substituting the dying umaru musa so dat when his is gone a south-south will enter (Goodluck) but I say its not enough 4 all his evil deeds.

Revolution is coming to Nigeria and i will be among the masses.

There is only so much we can take before we realize we have nothing else to lose than our lives and this man has open the flood gates. This corrupt obj and his kind will suffer and when the time is right Nigerian's small and big, tall and short will match on the streets to aso rock and every government building to burn it down and kill every single one of this scumbags and their families. Right now all we care for is family and death by gun but when one leads the way the rest follow and its time we stand up for our rights. fucking his son's wife old basket case all am when for is the right time i don't care if i lose my life in the process but i will not give up on Nigeria she's on life support and i won't let her die.

Odenta Means "Fool Outside" Ode ni ta.

Guy u are a pure fool, go to other country and look what their president is doing, go to places like niger , togo ghana and more small small countries like that they have light steady, nigeria wey be giant of Africa can not have light for str8 10 hours and u they hail obasanjo for what he did to nigeria, all the loots, man u better watch ur speech nigerians are very angry so much about what is happening, some stupid fool like u .

OBJ and all those who relate to him are apostates of Satan

Satanic elements rose to prominence in Nigeria during OBJ'S term in office. So much blood was spilt.Satanic practices among the leaders became the order. Cultism, voodoo and anti-Christ apostates took over. Agents such as Odenta were empowered to pick fights with perceived enemies of the prince of darkness.
The next time he will be stripped naked in a public place. Very soon Obasanjo and his kind will begin to confess before Nigerians and the world. All those who try to use the name of God in relation to OBJ are obviously apostate and there are many, they shall be exposed soon.

FOR ODENTA!

@Odenta,I think u are SICK!
You obviously need deliverance if you claim to know God BECAUSE you are NOT speaking the mind of God as u claimed.
If OBJ has enriched your pocket such that you lost your integrity,STOP BRINGING GOD'S NAME TO SUCH UNGLORIFYING DISCUSS.
Be NOT deceieved,GOD IS NOT MOCKED! Whatever a man sows,he shall reap.
Let us FEAR GOD in our dealings whether at home or at work or in whatever position we find ourselves.
Finally,GOD said HE will bring EVERYTHING into judgement,including EVERY HIDDEN THING that u and I (And OBJ)are doing(Ecclesiastes 12:14).
DNT SPEAK FOR GOD PLS! Speak for yourself because our GOD cant be dragged into such talk.

OBJ DESERVED TO BE BATH WITH ACID

He is a devil not an angel as his cronies want us to believe. Looting of Nigerian treasury was unprecedented under his watch. Obasanjo is the most corrupt of former African leaders living or dead. He redistributed Nigeria wealth amongst his friends and cronies. His 8 years of misrule led to a do or die election that produce a mediocre that left Nigeria worst than ever. He should leave Nigeria alone or face the wrath of irate mob.

THIS IS A VERY STRONG SIGNAL

THIS IS A VERY STRONG SIGNAL TO THE BAD EGGS IN OUR SOCIETY. OBJ MAY HAVE DONE WELL TO A VERY HANDFUL OF THE GENERALITY OF THE COUNTRY BUT TO THE DETRIMENT OF THE MAJORITY. THIS IS ONE MAN THAT HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO ACTUALLY TRANSFORM THIS COUNTRY TO GREATER HEIGHTS, BUT GREEDILY REFUSED TO DO SO. HE SHOULD GO BACK AND PRAY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF PPLE HE HAS FURTHER MADE POOR AS A RESULT OF HIS ILL CONCEIVED ACTIONS.

NICE BEATING

I am more than happy that OBJ was beaten up.I even wonder why the guy that beat him did not have gun with him so that he will shoot him instantly not only beating.
Next action should be shooting him hence after all his atrocity to nigeria masses he still have to move around without there criminal exorted escorts. The next attck should be me.he laugh....... Niggaz.

Obasanjo will not end well...

@Udenta: You are either a member of Obasanjo's cult where voodoo, withcraft, cannibalism, incest and other sundry evil is practised, or you are a sheer supersititous fool who was inspired by Obasanjo's god - the devil. Why were you silent on how this ugly monster killed thousands of defenceless citizens in Odi, Zaki Biam and how he wickedly orchestrated the killings of hundreds of people in Lagos, Ibadan, Sagamu, Kaduna, Kano, Jos, Taraba, Enugu etc just to satisfy the bloodthirst of his god. What of Bola Ige, Harry Marshall, Chuba Okadigbo,Wada Nas and a host of others that dared his evil deeds? Now it is punch but next time it is going to be a pistol or even a bomb. This evil man is going to have a most painful and horrible end. Amen!

Pot calling Kettle BLACK!!!which of you accusers is not corrupt?

When morals have been traded-off and the art of 'blamings & excuses" has embedded into a generation of vipers that call their leaders snakes... lets wake up!!! In Africa, an elder is an elder. An act of shame perpetrated under the disguise of dirty heroism... and all of you are happy??? God have mercy! I honestly think Nigeria is finished with the kind of comments hitting SR. check out www.paparazziafrica.com/the-most-respected-africans-alive.html and you will see how respected this man called OBJ is. You make mistakes and he did. Myself & you were affected by his good & bad decisions, but Nigeria is difficult to rule and Nigerians'..."yepa!!!" they will run the coolest man mad.I still thank God for where I am today and we all have to just look closer at this man that acts like a fool but controls you the wise people of Nigeria... you don't have to like him, and i honestly don't but with the way you guys have rubbished him, i now consider him truly respected and jealoused unfairly.

Obasanjo was beaten and this

Obasanjo was beaten and this is also the way we will beat some of our officers here in the Mission since the do not know their right.

I will fight with my last blood to make sure this mission is change to standard rather than being use by our illitrate officers who allow even our local staff to intimidate our brothers who comes to the mission.

More Punching pls

I told the Ape not long ago that posterity will severely punish him for his political roguery, murders, and unprecedented corruption against the truly down-trodden people of Nigeria. The ugly Chimp has murdered sleep in the people's court...never shall he sleep any more. The evils that men do stare them right in the face...you aint see anything yet...evil genius of Otta farm !!!

Baba Iyabo was punched, very well!

This is AP report confirmed by police.
Nigeria: Ex-president punched at busiest airport

The Associated Press
Tuesday, November 9, 2010; 9:34 AM

LAGOS, Nigeria -- Authorities say an unidentified man jumped into the personal car of Nigeria's former President Olusegun Obasanjo and punched him.
Airport police commissioner Chris Ola says the attack happened Monday morning at Lagos' busy Murtala Muhammed International Airport. Ola says the man, who is in his 40s, jumped into the president's car as he left the airport's international terminal.
It was immediately unclear if 73-year-old Obasanjo suffered any injury in the assault. Ola on Tuesday described the incident as "a breach of security." Authorities believe it was a spontaneous attack.
Obasanjo served as Nigeria's first civilian president as the nation emerged from a series of military dictatorships and coups, serving from 1999 to 2007.

OBJ: Not beaten

Baba said he was not beaten by the lunatic. You can check the update in other Nigeria newspaper. OBJ dey kampe! You can gloat all you want, OBJ will select the next president, and you had better support him before you get rolled over.

@Kalada : abusing Chuks about OBJ

Kalada:

You wrote that "OBJ had all the chance to save Nigeria but he didn't" You are wrong! He did by preventing Atiku from being the president, who would have run Nigeria aground. He resets the politics of Nigeria to ensure that, northerners are not the only one born to rule. He saw to it that a South-South person became president. Moreover, OBJ looks beyond his ethnic group to select his top economic team from Igbo land, to demonstrate his nationalistic view by simply looking for those who are qualified.

If OBJ had let Atiku become president, all the vilification would have subsided. I credited the northerners for making OBJ looks like a demon. But maybe he is to them. Northerners do not have the monopoly of leadership, any other person from the minority can now run for the presidency!

By the way, Chuks is not foolish as you alleged. He was one of those who appreciate OBJ. Stop calling Chuks a bigot for expressing his views. I think it is about time we debate issues here intelligently.

Have a nice day.

Gboluwaga.

good man

god i love that man ,this is what many nigerians sopose to do ,its hard time we start doing things right ,we nigerians have to come together and fight this fucking looters ,they didnt just fail nigerians but all black people all over the wolrd ,taken our money back to the weasten banks after they ensave our forfathers,they need to be kill not only beating many africans are dieing cos of they actions greedy fuckers!plus ibb ,james ibori,the abarchs family ,many of them they are going to die

AN ACT TO BE CONDEMNED

Nigerians should condemn this kind of violent attack on a former president. Remember that all of us have more than enough reason to be frustrated and even angry ay the plight of our country. If we were all to choose to respond violently, our beloved country would be engaged in a circular firing squad that would consume us all. What ever we may think of former president Obasanjo personally, we should have respect for the office of the President. Such respect would preclude rejoicing when such an incident occurs.

Thanks Odenta- OBJs ENEmies better be careful

@ Udenta, I agree with all your words of wisdom. It is true most of the commentators on Sahara Reporters are mere 'small boys', may be not in age but in other spheres of life. That is why they type all kinds of insults without any kind of fear. They portray we Nigerians as barbarians who don't use our brains at all. Many write out of emotions and out of deep inferiority complex. I agree with the spiritual angle. OBJ may not be a loved person, but he has certainly played a part in the affairs of this country. Here is someone who always see the end of his enemies. I read a book about him and I will search for it soon. The book listed names of people who have fought OBJ since the 60s and who OBJ has outlived. Certainly this is no ordinary man. He is certainly a hero of the minorities in Nigeria without whom the Hausa and Yoruba elites who have ridden over. It is OBJ who singlehandedly destroyed the Arewa, Afenifere and Ohaneze. While the Arewa and Ohaneze are coming back, the Afenifere has since not recovered. You may hate the man's guts but he is the most detribalised Nigerian ever who handed over to Shagari instead of Awolowo, handed over to Yar Adua and positioned Goodluck. People who are spiritually dead better think twice before pasting messages here.

I wish...

I wish the so-called "irate man" had an acid to bath him with so that he will enjoy all the money he looted from Nigeria in agony for the rest of his life. That man did what 150 million Nigerians would have done if they had the courage . I pray it serves as a good lesson to Atiku and IBB about the true feeling of the Nigerian people.
OBJ raped our country!!! He had the best opportunity to set the pace for Nigerian development in the 21st Century as he was given a clean slate. But he opted for corruption and allowed thieves like Ibori and Odili loot as much as they like. Now corruption in Nigeria is a big obstacle for any leader across the spheres of government. I guess this is only the beginning of Nigerians coming back to their senses. THESE CORRUPT RULERS ARE MEN NOT SEMI-GODS!!!

9ja

the only president i will respect in 9ja is dat one who fixes up power,health,schools,water and likes of dem stuff.

Vote or Die

Vote people, don't sell ur vote for five stacks and begin to complain when things are not getting done. By the way i know a lot of people don't want to hear my opinion but i will say it anyway. if Nigeria is still not moving forwar as we all hope. Pls divide the damn place. too big to manage as far as am concern. Maybe their will be accountability.

Remember what happens to OBJ's enemies

If this can happen to OBJ with all the avalanche of security around him, what would happen to the ordinary Nigerian. This is more than security breach. It's a high time security of life and property is given a pride of place by the government

wrong comparison

In other for people to be on thesame page, they first must speak in tone> Nigeria is too tribalistic to compare to the States. We are all Americans. Someone from Ohio speaks the same language as Texax. don't compare United States to Nigeria.

wise comment

The only wise comment on this site. Thanks concerned girl.Vote or die. Try not to sell your vote for 5,000 naira people.

@Odenta i do not see your

@Odenta i do not see your point. You are raining abuses and curses on people because they express the way the feel about someone(OBJ) and you dare use the name of God to pour out abuses??? Inasmuch as i agreed with a couple of OBJ's policies and studied his antecedents in the past which by providence and the grace of God he rose to the level he is, i don't see why you should insult anybody for expressing himself based on their individual opinion.

It was totally wrong for a man to pounce on OBJ like that, i think the man should go to prison, one question is where were his security details before the event happened? Because if the man had a gun that would have been a different case. OBJ to my little assessment did some good for this country but he is not a perfect man. Do not for any reason use the name of God to rain insult on people because of their opinion otherwise it may get back to you.

Too much L.A. Fuel

Too much L.A. Fuel (www.lafuel.com), the man don overcharged be dat

Hypocrite!

Very impressive that we all callthe name of God to swore and abuse ourcorrupt leaders

ALL OF YOU OBJ'S ENEMIES ARE IN TROUBLE!

I speak under the inspiration of God. No word here will go out for nothing>

All of you guys who have been abusing OBJ here, you better be care ful. Remember what happened to all of OBJ's enemies? Awolowo never got what he wanted and died; MKO was poisoned;Abacha died on top of prostitutes; Wada Nas died suddenly, Okadigbo died of suffocation. Former speaker Naaba is finished politically despite being a brilliant politician. Abubakar Rimi who used to abuse OBJ is killed.
There is God's hands on OBJ and he is the father of modern Nigeria who must be demonised by idiots and fools like the ones on Sahara Republic. Most of you don't have spiritual eyes but I wont say more than that. The man who put Igbos in charge of the economy is the most abused by Igbos themselves. I am afraid you may all end up in bad weathers when you fight a God chosen person. Adekunle won the war but OBJ took the glory becuase he was recalled before the end of the war! Muritala Mohammed was head of state but OBJ completed his term. MKO won election, never got there but OBJ got the compensation due to the South West. He is the only person in Nigerian history who was twice President. He has never planned coup, yet became Head of State. He never had money for elections yet he was helped to win PDP Presidency. He has installed 2 Presidents since then and is today the biggest god father in Nigeria's politics. OBJ is the most feared by Nigeria's most sophisticated political group, the Northerners. He is the one who put Northern minorities in sensitive positions reserved for the core North. He is the one God used to position Yar Adua and then Goodluck. He is the one God used to install the Minorities of the South south, to put the Easterners in sensitive positions of the economy. He relegated his people who hate his guts and today the Yorubas are no where politically in Nigeria for abusing OBJ. The Igbos will also face the consequencies of being ingrates to this kind of man. Now to all of you who have evr abused this man. You are abusing a God chosen person. Remember, God did not make anyone perfect. He empowered this man. When a lunatic attacks this sort of man it is not for you to rejoice but of course most of you have invited calamity on your heads. Mark my words, you guys are in deep shit.

REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENS TO OBJ'S ENEMIES
