A war the end of which no one can predict has broken out between Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola and former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

This follows last week’s seizure of one of Obasanjo Farms’ utility vehicles by men of the Lagos State Transport Management Authority (LASTMA) for allegedly committing a traffic offence in Lagos.

“It was gathered that all efforts by the ex-president to ensure the release of the seized vehicle proved abortive,” said a report in the Abuja-based Daily Trust. The paper quoted sources close t Obasanjo Farms in Ota, neighbouring Ogun State in South-West Nigeria, as revealing that in retaliation, “between last Friday and Sunday, October 21, over 10 red-coloured LAGBUS belonging to Lagos State Government have been forcefully diverted into the Obasanjo Farms compound in Ota.”

As a result, there has been scarcity of the popular LAGBUS luxury buses on Lagos-Abeokuta expressway while thousands of residents of Sango, Ota, Ifo and other settlements along the axis have become stranded for the second day running and this has also doubled the cost of transportation in the area, according to Daily Trust.

News Express reports that even during his days as President from 1999 to 2007, Obasanjo, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in power at the centre, never enjoyed cordial relations with the government of Lagos under the control of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN).
