SaharaReporters claimed an aide of Obasanjo confirmed that all available copies had been sold. The three-part book bear stinging criticisms of President Goodluck Jonathan, and few high-profile Nigerians, including ex-President Umaru Yar’Adua, Noble Laureate Professor Wole Soyinka and Senator Uche Chukwumerije.
The book was released Tuesday in Lagos against a court order banning its publication. Obasanjo explained that launching the book was no affront on the judiciary, as the book had already been published before the order. He has also appealed the order of same court, headed by Justice Vincent Ashi, asking law enforcements to mop up the copies already in circulation.
