Inside sources revealed that the then President, Olusegun Obasanjo, was not aware that his beautiful wife went for a surgery in Spain. Obasanjo revealed this in his autobiography, My Watch:
“I found that part of her 60th birthday anniversary, which was unknown to me, was her operation for her tummy and her shape.”
President Obasanjo also debunked the claim that “he sacrificed his wife, Stella Obasanjo, to be successful in his political career”. He said,
“before the verdict in Spain, I was unaware of what I came to hear later that I might have caused the death of my wife to sacrifice her for success in my job. “That is how wicked and satanic some Nigerians can be in their rumours and mischief.”
During Stella Obasanjo’s surgery in Spain, a tube used for removing fat had been mistakenly placed into her abdominal cavity which punctured her colon and lacerated her liver. Stella Obasanjo became seriously ill the following day.
During the court hearing, prosecutors said the surgeon initially failed to answer his mobile phone, and then waited more than four hours before driving Stella Obasanjo in lhis own car to an intensive care unit, where she died an hour later.
