Court Orders Obasanjo’s Book Confiscated


Buruji Kashamu’s lawyers are not smiling! A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja today held that former President Olusegun Obasanjo was in contempt of court for flouting orders restraining him from among others, publishing his autobiography – My Watch.

The judge in a ruling gave Obasanjo 21 days (from the day he will be served) to explain to the court why he should not be punished for contempt for going ahead to publish the book despite the ex-parte interim order made by the court on December 5 and a pending libel suit involving him.

The judge restrained him from further publishing, printing or offering for sale, the book, which content touches on the subject matter before the court.
