Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo’s father in-law and former United African Company (UAC), boss, Dr Christopher Abebe, is dead.
He passed on yesterday afternoon at the age of 99 in Iruekpen, Esan West local government area of Edo State after a brief illness.
He was the father of the late wife of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Stella Obasanjo.
“He died this afternoon after a brief illness. He is the Odionwere of Iruekpen and by tradition, his death will not be announced until a meeting is called by his second in command,” a family source told journalists in Benin Thursday night.
Until his death, Dr. Abebe was the Odionwere (community leader) of Iruekpen.
