Erstwhile First Lady, Turai Yar’Adua, on Saturday paid a surprise visit to former President Olusegun Obasanjo in his residence at Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
Information gathered shows that Mrs. Yar’Adua was escorted to the former president’s residence by businessman Kenny Martins.
She met privately with Mr. Obasanjo for more than an hour before departing in a convoy of three cars.
A source squealed that, ”She specifically intimated the former President of the ongoing probe of one of her daughters, Zainab, by the EFCC. She believed it is a witch-hunt, a ploy by the Buhari government to get at her family”.
Obasanjo’s aide also confirmed the visit to pressmen.
“It is true that she visited on Saturday,” the aide said. “I don’t know exactly what she discussed with Baba (Obasanjo). But I think it is safe to say she came to greet him and discuss issues relevant to the two families.”
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had on July 22 summoned Zainab, wife of former Kebbi State Governor, Saidu Dakingari, over alleged N2billion fraud perpetrated during her husband’s tenure as governor of the Northwest State.
