All you need to know about Chief Olusegun Obasanjo’s family – His countless wives, side-chicks and children (Photos)


Olusegun Obasanjo is the twelfth leader of The Federal Republic of Nigeria. He became a military president after the failed coup on President Muritala Muhammad’s Regime (failed because only General Muhammad was killed). Olusegun Obasanjo had always supported Civilian Rule, considering that he helped the change to civil rule on the first of October 1979 to the newly elected President Shehu Shagari.


After being accused of a coup and going against Sani Abacha he was arrested and sent to prison for 30 years. He said he became a Christian while in prison. He was released after the death of Sani Abacha in 1998. He became the president of Nigeria again after the 1999 elections. He is fondly referred to as “Baba.” It is safe to say that Obasanjo has led Nigeria as President for 11 years in total.

Olusegun Obasanjo House

Obasanjo’s house (it’s disrespectful to call it that, so mansion) is on a Hilltop in Abeokuta, located an hour drive from downtown Lagos. Obasanjo’s mansion is made up of 6 structures including Obasanjo cinema house and three bungalows.

The house was completed close to the time Baba left office as the President in 2007. It was structured by an Abuja based Italian Company called Messrs Gitto Construzioni Generali Nigeria Limited. It is also reported that the House has up to 50 rooms.

The Olusegun Obasanjo cinema is for visitors. The Mansion was reported to have caught fire in late 2012. However, there was no official claim.
