Abacha killer squad: Obasanjo doesn’t even know “this impostor” and he was my “errand boy” – Fasawe

by Rachel Ogbu


A member of the Peoples Democratic Party, Oyewole Fasawe has described Richard Odusanya who accused former President, Olusegun Obasanjo of running a killer squad as an “errand boy”, who had no knowledge or insight into the working of government during the era of Obasanjo.

Fasawe insisted that Obasanjo was not responsible for Bola Ige’s death and that Obasanjo had never even met Odusanya who claimed to be the ex-president’s aide.

“President Obasanjo and I have been friends for a long time, while Richard had been my errand boy for some time until about two years ago, when he surreptitiously wanted to sell one of my properties in London,” he said.

“Throughout my frequent visits to the Villa when Obasanjo was president, I cannot recall a particular time when I had gone in company with Richard Odusanya.”

“All through the years that President Obasanjo was in office, he never met with Richard, let alone talk of exchanging handshake with him. He knew absolutely nothing about the workings and activities of government during those era, other than being my errand boy.

“I want to state categorically that former President Obasanjo never met with this impostor, nor know anything about the person called Richard Odusanya. The so-called Odusanya had been my errand boy for years until about two years ago when I severed relationship with him after his failed bid to put up one of my London properties for sale.”

The Punch reports:

Fasawe, who stated this in an email to our correspondent, said Obasanjo had no hand in the unresolved murder of former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige,  and a former national chairman of the All Peoples Party, Chief Harry Marshall.

Fasawe was reacting to allegation by one Mr. Richard Odusanya, who claimed to be a former associate of Obasanjo.

In a live interview, with an online news portal, Saharareporters, Odusanya had alleged that the former President lodged the killer squad at a State Security Service headquarters, known as ‘Yellow House.’

He appeared on the programme alongside Mr. Segun Seriki, a PDP member in Ogun State.

In the said interview, Odusanya had alleged that Obasanjo knew about the murder of Marshall.
