Mr Olujonwo Obasanjo, one of the sons of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has advised his mother, Ms. Taiwo Martins, not to use him to seek media attention.
Jonwo, who got married last year, described as “ridiculous,” claim by his mother, that he was missing and that the Police should look for him.
The mother had in an interview granted a national newspaper disclosed that her son, Olujonwo, was missing from his matrimonial home and had alerted the Police about it.
But, in his statement dated February 7 and made available to journalists in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Thursday, the 34 year-old wondered why the mother would want the Police to go looking for him.
He said he was old enough to manage his life, adding that he was neither missing nor lost.
According to him, he had elected to keep away from his mother for now.
“At my age of over 34 years, it is ridiculous to extreme that my mother would ask the Police to look for me.
“I am well, alive and kicking and the Police need not look for me. For peace in my life, I have decided to keep away from my mother for now. She should not make me part of her seeking media attention.
“My siblings and others in my family who care about me without negative influence and abhorrent action know my whereabouts and we keep interacting and communicating.
“My father, who has supported me and my decisions in every aspect of my life, has been in constant communication with me and he is aware that I am hale and hearty.
“This is my personal and deliberate decision. I don’t want crocodile tears nor undue publicity from anybody,” he stated.
