Published

on

Two identified as Akinola Akeem and Muyiwa Akeem and their native doctor, Odunta Moses, have been arrested by operatives of the of the Nigeria Police Force Intelligence Response Team (IRT).

The suspects said to be members of a notorious robbery gang that has been terrorizing Ijebu Mushin area of Ogun State for a long time, were arrested after they attacked the home of Pa Olutokunbo, in Ikala Village of Ijebu Mushin, killing his 72-year-old wife, Christiana Olutokunbo and robbing him of the sum of N550,000 and three mobile phones.

An investigation which was carried out after one of Pa Olutokunbo’s sons who is based in the United Kingdom petitioned the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, led to the arrest of one of the users of the stolen mobile phone.

The stolen phone user led the police to Akinola Akeem who confessed during investigations that he had carried out some operations within Ijebu Mushin area of Ogun state including the robbery in Pa Olutokunbo’s house and the killing of his 72-year-old wife.

He led the security operatives to arrest his younger brother, Muyiwa who also took part in the operation and their native doctor, Oduntan Moses, who prepared charms for them before their operation.

Confessing to the crime, Muyiwa said;

“I have gone on three robbery operations and I killed a woman in my last operation. Myself and my younger brother formed the gang because we were frustrated.

“In the first operation, I made N5,000 and in the second one, I got N9,000. The third operation was at Ikala, where we killed the old woman. Before going for that robbery, I first went to Koba, a powerful native doctor in my community to prepare charms for me and my brother.

“We got information about Pa Olutokunbo, because he talked carelessly. He was in a bar and was talking about the money he had in his house which my brother overheard. We then went and consulted a native doctor to prepare charms for us to make us succeed in the operation. “We asked Koba, to check if the man had the money in his house and he said yes, we then asked him to give us charms that would enable us appear inside the man’s house.

“He prepared it and gave us to wear it on our necks, but when got there the charm failed to work and when we called him on the phone, told as to be patient that someone would come out of the house.

We saw someone coming out of the house and when he was going back, we followed him into the house. We met four persons in the house but there was this old woman we met who started shouting and I took her into the room but she died while I was pulling her.

“My brother Akeem asked the man for the money in his house and the man gave us N15,000 . We called Koba again and told him that the money was not in the house, but Koba asked us to keep searching because he was very sure that there was money in that house as his oracle never deceived him.

When my brother held the man and tried to kill him, the man begged and went into his room and brought out a bag containing money and gave it to us.

“We saw charms on the money and we called Koba and informed him about the money and the charm and he asked us not to bring it to him immediately. We took the bag to him and he gave me N60,000 and gave my brother N50,000.

“Before then, Koba had told my brother and I that he could prepare rituals for us that would make us rich and he had asked us to get the sum of N100,000 for it, but since we were so poor and we couldn’t raise the money, we decided to give him the N100,000 out of the money he gave us.

He prepared a soap for us which he asked us to bath with. But after all we did, we did not get anything. We then realised that Koba fooled us. My brother and I were looking for a way of fighting him to get back our money before the police came and arrested us”.

Koba however accused the brothers of not using the charm as directed. He said;

“They came to me complaining that they were very poor and want to be rich, then I asked them to bring N100,000 to prepare charms for them.

“They said they didn’t have money then but they came later that they heard that an old man had money in his house and they wanted to rob him.

“I consulted my oracle which informed me that there was money in the house but the money was ritual money. I gave them charms which would enable them get into the house and get the money.

“They got the money and brought it to me, then they gave me N100,000 from the money to prepare charms for them which I did but I don’t know why it didn’t work for them. My charms are portent and they are working very well.”

Photos: Gov Sanwo-Olu Meets Boy In ‘Mummy Calm Down’ Video

Published

on

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Lagos State governor, has finally met with Oreofeoluwa Lawal-Babalola, a little boy in the viral “mummy calm down” video.

The governor invited the boy and his family to his office on Saturday, 8th August, 2020.

Oreofeoluwa had become an instant sensation on social media platforms after a video went viral of him in tears from his mum’s scolding while confidently telling her to “calm down” and give him a “last chance”.

The video had attracted the governor’s attention and he requested to meet the little boy.

It had also inspired Sanwo-Olu’s Eid-el-Kabir message to Muslim faithfuls and inhabitants of the state wherein he urged them to maintain calm amid the COVID-19 crisis.

The exchange was indeed funny, but it depicts the efforts parents put in moulding children into responsible adults. I want to assume that his mom indeed calmed down because the appeal was moving enough to make anyone change their mind,” he had said.

Sanwo-Olu had also said that he would be acquiring exclusive rights to “calm down” as a catchphrase.

Alleged genocide: Niger Delta group, Afenifere, Ohaneze, others storm Southern Kaduna

Published

on

The leadership of the various Nigeria’s sociopolical organizations, including Afenifere, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Pan Niger Delta Forum and the Middle Belt Forum on Saturday paid a solidarity visit on the people of Southern Kaduna over the incessant killings in their communities.

This is coming as youths from the troubled Southern Kaduna stormed the state capital with “enough is enough” protest, grounding activities at the junction of the Kaduna Refinery and Petroleum Company (KRPC).

The delegations who announced a collective donation of N2m to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), at the Gonin-Gora camp, renewed their call for restructuring of Nigeria

Speaking at the IDPs camp after visiting some of the affected communities in Southern Kaduna, National Chairman of PANDEF, Air Commodore Idengesit Nkanga (retd), said they were in Kaduna to identify with the ‘long suffering people of Southern Kaduna’.

PANDEF Chairman said, “The overall leader of the PANDEF, Chief Edwin Clark has asked that we come along with the delegation of the Southern and Middle Belt Forum to identify with you all at this time and season, to encourage that the season will never remain like this.

“He (Clark) said we should encourage you that even if you don’t see us from afar, it doesn’t mean that you are not on our minds. So, we are here to demonstrate our support. This is not the best of times. This is not the kind of forum we would have loved to come and share with you.

We are here principally to assure you that those of us on the other side of the Niger – the South-South people are with you in spirit, soul and flesh,” he said.

Taking his own turn, Spokesman of Afenifere, Mr. Yinka Odumakin, who accused the Presidency of serving as the mouthpiece of the attackers of Southern Kaduna people, said the delegation were in the state, to commiserate with the natives who had been under “genocide.”

According to him, for the authorities to say that the attackers were out for revenge, means the government knows the attackers.

Odumakin said, it is unfortunate that, security operatives looked the other ways while genocide was being carried out on the Southern Kaduna people and “the people are being told that the killing was a revenge”.

According to him, “We are here today to say that the God almighty will bring justice to the land. Those they killed will not be killed in vein.

Who are these people and who spoke for them and who did they complain to? Whoever said that type of thing, knows where the attackers are coming from.

“Our position is that for the South-south, Southwest, Southeast and the Middle Belt, whatever attacks one, attack all. So, the attacks against Southern Kaduna, is an attack against all of us. That is why we are here this afternoon to commiserate with you,” he said.

Also, the National President of the Ohaneze Ndi-Igbo, Dr. Onyia Nwodo, asked President Muhammadu Buhari to safe the country from an imminent collapse following the spate of insecurity in the country.

Nwodo, who was represented on the occasion by the President of the Ohaneze group in Kaduna, Chief Ben Churchill-Aniekwena said, “It is quite pathetic and sad. We feel what you feel, but God is watching.

“At this stage, may I draw the attention of all the state apparatus of coercion; I mean the Inspector-General of Police, other security forces, the judiciary and the Commander -in – Chief of the Armed Forces, President Muhammadu Buhari to do the needful to safe this country from total and imminent collapse. Enough is enough.”

President of the Middle Belt Forum, Dr. Pogu Bitrus in his remarks said Nigeria needs some critical changes. He therefore renewed the call for the restructuring of the country where power would not be too concentrated on the federal government.

He said argued that, the people of Southern Kaduna would not have suffered persistent attacks currently experienced, if they were under the native police.

He said that, “We have been crying for restructuring of this country. If there were native police, will they allow this people to kill you? No. But we have everything centred in the Federal Government – police, military and others. So, they don’t have commitment to you. That is why we are crying for restructuring so that we can be defended by our people.”

Expressing appreciation to the visitors on behalf of Southern Kaduna, National President of the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU), Hon. Jonathan Asake, said the visit marked a genuine concern for humanity and love for his people.

Asake noted with regrets that instead of the authorities to tackle the genocide on Southern Kaduna, both the state and federal governments were busy justifying it.

“I want to use this opportunity to say thank you to our from the South-south, South-west, Southeast and of course, the Middle Belt that have found time to come to Southern Kaduna to commiserate with us as the continues onslaught on our communities; the invasion on our communities and the genocide that have been going on,” Asake said.

Meanwhile, the Southern Kaduna protesters who earlier stormed the major highway connecting the state capital with Kaduna South Senatorial zone, dressed in black attires to depict a mourning mood.

They accused both the federal and state governments of not working their talk to end what they called “genocide” in their area.

Some of the inscriptions on their placards read, “end killings in Southern Kaduna”, “we cannot continue like this”, “Southern Kaduna lives matter”, “government has failed us”, “allow us to defend ourselves if you can’t” among others.

They however vowed not to retreat until some of them who were picked by the police are brought back.

Confirming the arrest of an unspecified number of the protesters to our Correspondent, Police Public Relations Officer in the State, ASP Muhammad Jalige said, the arrest were made because there was no prior notification of the procession.

“Yes some of them were arrested because they did not inform us about the protest. I cannot tell you how many of them were picked now but i will get back to you later,” he said.
