Obasanjo To Visit Injured Son Today

Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo is expected in Jos, Plateau State capital today, to visit his injured son, Lt Colonel Adeboye Obasanjo, who is currently receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital in the city.

 It was gathered that the former President, who is billed to touch ground at the Yakubu Gowon Airport, Jos by 1 pm will be received by Governor Jonah Jang, and will thereafter proceed to see his son in the hospital.

 The junior Obasanjo was earlier this week injured during a fierce military campaign against the outlawed Boko Haram terrorist group to reclaim Michika, Adamawa State, which has been under the siege of the insurgents in the past week.

He was said to have been initially rushed to Federal Medical Centre, Jimeta, Yola before he was later flown into Jos for a proper medical care.

 It was not clear as the time of the report whether he is at the 3 Div Medical Centre, Rukuba Barracks or NAF Hospital, Jos.

Reports quoting family sources had it that the convalescing junior Obasanjo had been treated and discharged and preparing to rejoin his group at the front lines to continue the campaign against insurgents.

He was also said to have clarified circumstances surrounding his being shot in the buttocks as a frontal confrontation with the insurgents and not an ambush as was earlier reported.
Former President Obasanjo’s visit to his injured son in Jos would mean that contrary to reports that he had fully recovered from his injury, he still needed more medical attention and may not yet be fit enough to resume at the front lines.
