My Watch, Olusegun Obasanjo

For this reason, a high court judge stopped Obasanjo from publishing or having the book published on his behalf. Obasanjo, however, flouted the ruling and launched the book in December 2014, causing the court to confiscate the book and took him to task to explain why he should not be punished.
The book was later launched in Kenya in February 2015.
