IN a manner which is fast becoming the second nature of Senator Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello, hell nearly broke loose at the wedding of the Oyo State governor, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akalaís daughter in Ogbomoso, on Saturday when Iyabo, who arrived the cerremony when the church service was midway and conspicuosly refused to greet the Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel and his wife, went passed them after kneeling down to others.


She was said to have secured a seat behind the governor and at a stage started dancing behind the governor provocatively, while the seams of her dress was said to have touched the governorís head in the process. One of the security aides of the governor, who attempted to stop her, was physcially assautlted by the Senator in the church, in the presence of other governors and traditional rulers.


The Senate leader, Senator Teslim Folarin, who was said to have witnessed the show of shame, was said to have pleadedwith the governor and the security operatives to overlook Senator Iyabo Obasanjoís disgraceful behaviour.


Personalities who were said to have also witnessed the show of shame included, General Adeyinka rtd, other South West Governors, Chief Bode George, Oba Ogunleye of Akinale, Oyo Deputy Governor, Alhaji Taofik Arapaja and Chief Abiola Ogundokun.


Governor Daniel was said to have remained calm. Senator Obasanjo has been having a running battle with the Ogun State governor in recent times.


The face-off between the duo peaked when the plan by the Alake of Egbaland to have the daughter of the former president confered with the Iyaniwura chieftaincy title wasallegedly stalled by the governor.


Apart from that, the ordeals of the senator in the hands of the EFCC operatives and the media attacks that trailed her alleged involvement in the N10 million ministry of health scam, was view from the Obasanjo camp as that sponsored by the governor.


Sunday Tribune also gathered that Senator Obasanjo had in the past demonstrated such unruly behaviour during the wedding ceremonies of Major Obasanjo in Abeokuta, at the Hiltop residence of her father, when she walked out the ADC and CSO of Governor Daniel from the venue of the ceremony.


She was also said to have exhibited the same level of indiscipline when she publicly snubbed the then first lady late Stella Obasanjo who was a special guest of honour at the annual award ceremonies.


Senator Obasanjo was the commissioner for health during the first term tenure of Governor Daniel and he was said to have been instrumental to her emergence as a senator.


Senator Obasanjo, according to an eye witness account would have caused more havoc despite the intervention of the senate leader, for the fact that governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola of Osun State had to call her to sit directly behind him.


Not yet satisfied with the ugly scene she had created, she was said to have stormed out of the church service immediately the convoy of his former boss departed Ogbomosho.


Commenting on the development, Special Adviser to the Oyo State governor on Public Communication, Prince Dotun Oyelade said, "the little skirmish during the wedding was an importation of a local politics that does not distract us from the sublime and profound joy tht brought us all together at this blessed occasion."
