Pirated Copies Of Obasanjo’s Controversial Book Selling For N7,000 In Lagos
Former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo
Hawkers are reportedly selling pirated copies of former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s controversial book, ‘My Watch’ for N7, 000 in the streets of Lagos State.
The Chairman, Organisation and Mobilisation Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South-West, Buruji Kashamu, had initially taken the issue of the controversial book to court in a bid to stop Obasanjo from launching it.
An Abuja high court had led by Justice Valentine Ashi, had directed security agents, including the police and the Department of State Service, to seize all the copies of the controversial autobiography which borders on his life in the military, as a democratic president and after office as the Vice president.
Against the order by the court, Obasanjo published the book which was written in three volumes on Tuesday, December 9, 2014.
It was learnt that the book’s original copies sold at  N15, 000 while the pirated copy which was reduced to two volumes has a white cover instead of the yellow and brown colour of the original copies.
