Late Otunba Tajudeen Disu with In-law,Otunba Mike Adenuga

This is unearthing as
your Africa’s number 1 Celebrity encounter blog, Asabeafrika has gone into archives to dig deep on the personality
of the Monday October 12, 2015 victim of assassination by alleged villagers
near the Lekki Trade Free Zone, in Epe area of Lagos, South West Nigeria, Mr. Tajudeen Disu. He is no other
person than the father of the handsome Lagos big boy, Jameel Olatokunbo Disu
who married Billionaire business mogul and Globacom Telecommunication founder, Otunba (Dr.) Mike Adenuga’s first
daughter, Bella in 2010.

Jameel had met Bella Adenuga
at a social event sometimes in 2008 and they both courted for two years and two
months before the courtship metamorphosed into marriage.  Jameel
who toasted Bella on his first encounter with her failed to take her phone
number until fate brought them back in a second encounter at Bolaji Folawiyo and Shasha Israni’s
party in Lagos.

He pinned her down with
his charismatic smile and diction and there and then he got her contact but
never knew she was an “Adenuga” as she introduced herself as Bunmi Marquis to Jameel. It took over two months of familiarity and friendship
before Jameel found out that his
“Bunmi Marquis” was actually the popular
Bella
Adenuga, Executive
Director of Globacom.

The cat was let out of
the bag by Bella herself who could
not continue to live a lie with the handsome and dandy son of the late Lekki Trade Free Zone boss any longer.
Information had it that Jameel was initially furious, very
furious on getting to know that he had been fooled along by Bella Adenuga (Bunmi Marquis) and
wanted to discontinue the relationship but his mother, Mrs. Modupe Disu, a Director of the Lagos State Examination Board
intervened and prevailed upon him not to discontinue the romance which had
gotten to a full moon stage of affection.
The Disu family later met the Adenuga
family in April 2010 and a great event spiced with love and celebration
took place with eminent Nigerians from royalty to diplomats, business tycoons
to entertainers. It was a talk of town event as Jameel Olatokunbo Disu married Belinda
Ajoke Olubunmi Adenuga.
Africa’s leading events and style magazine Ovation
International captured the event in camera with the Publisher, Dr. Dele Momodu leading a powerful team
of reporters and photographers from London, Ghana and Benin Republic to the
occasion.
Now you know who the late
Otunba Tajudeen Disu is.

How he was killed 5 years after son’s wedding with
Mike Adenuga’s daughter
.
The Mike Adenuga In-law was said to have been shot dead under some
funny circumstances when himself and some other prominent members of Okunraye
community came to douse a tension between Police and indigenes of the community
who were protesting the forceful overtake of their lands by Dangote Group on
that ill-fated Monday. Dangote Group is  one of the leading investment firms on the
Lekki Trade Free Zone’s clientele. Otunba
Disu
was alleged to have been hit by a Police bullet in the ensuing melee
and died instantly. It was a sad October Monday 12.  Some young people, about 17 were later
apprehended by Police authorities in Lagos but the community leaders insist
that it was police, in their overzealous carelessness who killed Otunba Disu. The case of “Who Killed
Otunba Disu?” is still ongoing as police and indigenes of Okunraye community whose
lands were seized and valuables destroyed for the establishment of Lekki Trade
Free Zone exchange accusations.  Otunba
Disu died five years after his son married Bella and two years after the couple
gave him a grandchild.

“Alhaji Tajudeen is an
honest, dedicated and very committed to whatever he is doing. He worked
relentlessly to ensure that Lekki Free
Trade Zone
project got to fruition but unfortunately he could not leave to
see the end of the project. I pray that God upholds his family, sustain them
and give them the fortitude to bear the loss.”
Son of the deceased, Ibrahim Disu said he never knew how
great his father was until his death. “I know my father was great but I don’t
know how it was until his death. Five minutes after his death, everyone had
taken over the responsibilities for the burial ceremony. I must thank everyone
who had rallied the family since his death.”
