Oshodi Violence: Lagos Suspends NURTW Activities Indefinitely

 L-R: Chairman of NURTW, Lagos State Chapter, Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede; Deputy Commissioner of Police, Operations, Lagos, Mr. Imohimi Edgal; Acting Commissioner for Transportation, Prince Olanrewaju Elegushi and Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Information & Strategy, Mr. Folarin Adeyemi during a press briefing on the suspension of the activities of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Oshodi by the Lagos State Government at the Bagauda Kaltho Press Centre, the Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja, on Monday, June 5, 2017.

Following the violence that led to the death of a leader of Motorcycle Operators’ Association of Lagos State (MOALS) in Oshodi, Alhaji Rasaq Bello popularly known as Hamburger, the State Government on Monday suspended activities of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in all the seven branches in the area indefinitely.

The affected branches are LOB A, LOB D, LOB J, Oshodi A, Oshodi B, Oshodi C and Oshodi D.

The State Government, in a news conference jointly addressed by officials of the State, the police and NURTW at the Bagauda Kaltho Press Centre in Alausa, said while the suspension order lasts, there would be no collection of tickets/fees from commuter buses operating in the area.

Addressing the briefing, the State’s Acting Commissioner for Transportation, Prince Olanrewaju Elegushi said throughout the duration of the suspension order, a team of State Government officials and security personnel would be mandated to oversee and monitor the transport operations within the affected branches to ensure they do not collect any ticket or fees from transport operators.

He said the suspension order was taken after due consultation with all the relevant stakeholders concerning the crisis, and that it would remain in force until peace and tranquility returned to the area, adding that the lifting of the ban would only be based on appropriate security reports.

He said: “For the avoidance of doubt, police investigations are ongoing on the said death and all persons found culpable will be prosecuted in line with the dictates of the laws.

“It is important to also emphasis that all rumour mongering, insinuations and unfounded/unverified facts should be avoided in the sake of peaceful co-existence.
“Any escalation of the crisis arising from the ban will lead to Government taking sterner actions against the branches where violence is recorded,” Elegushi threatened.
He said as part of the strategies to permanently address incessant crisis arising from activities of transport unions in the State, the State Government has already put in place the Bus Reform Initiative (BRI) through which 5,000 air-conditioned and convenient buses would be injected into the transport sector, adding that the initiative would soon be launched.

Also speaking, Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Operations in the State, Mr Imohimi Edgal confirmed that some arrests have been made following the crisis and that investigation had started in respect of the violence.

He assured that anyone found culpable in the crisis would be prosecuted in accordance with the law, and that the State Government, in partnership with the police and other relevant stakeholders were working towards a lasting peace.

Edgal added that the report of the preliminary investigation by the police would be out before the end of the week.

On his part, Lagos State Chairman of NURTW, Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede said the branch was in support of the decision of government to suspend all union activities in Oshodi indefinitely, saying that the union was adequately consulted before the action was taken.

“I like to confirm that the decision of the State Government to suspend union activities in Oshodi was supported by us. We also want a lasting peace in Oshodi and we know that with this decision, people can go about their duties without let or hindrance.

“I am sure if the union had handled the issue of Oshodi, we would have arrived at the same decision to suspend activities for now and I want to urge our members to cooperate with government in its bid to ensure lasting peace.

“Going forward, we have been educating our members on the need to eschew violence and we still want to reiterate it that anyone caught perpetrating violence would be dealt with in accordance with the law,” Agbede said.,

Notorious Lagos robber, Pumpy narrates how he raped 30 women, killed many

The Police have arrested 37-year-old notorious armed robber, Lanre Olowojobi, aka Pumpy.

Pumpy, who was arrested at Mushin, Lagos, at the weekend by operatives of the Lagos State Taskforce, has narrated how he was involved in robbery and rape of over 30 women in 3 years.

Olowojobi, admitted in his statement, that he killed many of his victims for refusing to let go of their valuables.

The suspect was arrested at the weekend during a raid of some identified criminal hideouts in the Akala, Idi-Iro, and Fadeyi areas of the metropolis.

The raid followed frequent complaints by members of the public about the activities of Pumpy and his gang members.

In his confessional statement to the police, Pumpy narrated the crimes which were mostly carried out with members of his gang.

He disclosed that his accomplices would drag their unfortunate victims into the bush or abandoned structures where they took turns raping them.

The robbery kingpin, who hails from Ipoti in Ekiti State, also said he had shot dead more than 10 persons in frequent fracas in the Akala area of Mushin alone.

Pumpy narrated thus: “I joined the boys in the street in 2008 but I founded my own gang in 2010. Initially we were four members in the gang but we later increased to 10.

“Aside being contracted by land grabbers and members of the different transport unions during their frequent leadership tussles, we also recruit young boys and girls to sell drugs on the street.

“I have over 20 young boys and girls who sell Indian hemp, Codeine, Tramadol and other drugs to users in the area. These young boys and girls do this in return for food, shelter and protection.

“A good number of them ran away from their homes while some of them are destitute.

“Since 2010 when I founded my own gang, I have killed so many persons. Some of those killed either died during shootouts or were macheted.

“There was a time I butchered one guy like a goat simply because he assaulted my girlfriend. Before then, I had warned him to stay away from my girl but he refused.

“I even sent some of his friends to him and he still paid deaf ears. One day, I sent some of my boys to corner him at night and macheted him severally during the fight that later ensued.”

Chairman of the Lagos State Task Force, Superintendent of Police, Olayinka Egbeyemi, who confirmed the arrest said that, though investigation was still ongoing, those arrested would soon be charged to court.


Nigerian Nursing Assistant Breaks Leg Of 98-year-old Patient, Leading To Death

A Nigerian nursing assistant has been arrested by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, after investigations revealed that he caused injuries that led to a 98-year-old woman’s death.

According to Newnan police, the patient Edna Warren sustained a broken leg following contact with 43-year-old Hakim Ogunkunle on Tuesday. Warren was taken to Piedmont Newnan Hospital where she underwent emergency surgery but she died during the procedure.

It was gathered that a staffer noticed swelling on Warran’s leg and notified a supervisor. When Ogunkunle was question, authorities said he told a story that was “inconsistent” with Warren’s injuries.

However, after Ogunkunle’s story didn’t match the nurse’s account of what happened, Ogunkunle wrote a statement. In it, he said that he went into Warren’s room to get her ready for breakfast.

He said that Warren became combative and tried to kick him. He wrote that he held her legs together to keep from being kicked and heard a “crack” from her leg and said she began to scream in pain.

Ogunkunle told his supervisor that he didn’t tell the truth originally because he was scared he’d get into trouble, according to the incident report. The supervisor called police.

The police department requested the GBI’s assistance in the case and, on Thursday, the agency announced their findings – that Warren intentionally caused the elderly woman’s injury.

Ogunkunle was arrested and charged with aggravated battery and exploitation as well as intimidation of an elderly person. He is being held at the Coweta County Jail.

According to an Atlanta Police report, Okunkunle was arrested last year on an charge of battery against a patient at another facility. Those charges were not pursued.

Davido, Wizkid And I Rule The Music Industry – Tekno

Singer Tekno, has declared that he alongside two other talented singers, rule the game.

The RARA crooner, took to twitter to make the claim tweeting that himself, Davido andWizkid, are the three artistes, ruling the music scene at the moment.

He tweeted:

This came after a fan tweeted that the three are the hottest in Africa.

So guys, how many agree to Tekno’s declaration?

Share your thoughts below.

Davido: The Return Of The King

Months back i wrote an article lambasting the Sony Records act Davido of disastrously leaving the scene for competitors to take his African throne. The singer on his part made fans realize the fault was not all his but rather his materials were being withheld by his new management Sony Records.

The year 2016 ended on a relatively low key mode for him as he payed the price for not dropping any material for a lengthy period totaling eleven odd months by missing out on all major awards.

Since the turn of the year it's been a new story for the DMW boss as he has again stolen the hearts of the African continent with a chart topping single and back to back music hits from his EP. Realizing he was fast losing his foothold on the African music scene with his desire to hit the international market, Davido took aggressive steps to correct that anomaly by first dropping his manager Kamal Ajiboye who seemed determined to propel the youngster to international acclaim.

Declaring via a snap chat post his intention to quit chasing the international market , he says "fuck all that international shit! It's cool but fuck it im back to basics!!".

That comment got many wondering what happened to the Sony Music deal he snagged.

He released his EP, ‘Son Of Mercy’ late last year under the Sony BMG imprint and has followed that up with a tremendously successful 'IF'.

With the Tekno produced 'IF' dominating headlines amidst topping charts and gathering favorable reviews, the year has been a fruitful year for Davido who is set to further wrestle the industry from new school acts threatening to take over his domain with his much publicized 'Back To Basics' tour. The Sony Artist announced his ‘Back To Basics’ Nigeria tour, and it’ll be hitting up eight cities around the country. Abuja, Port Harcourt, Enugu, Benin, Ilorin, Osogbo, Ibadan, and Lagos are all listed as cities that will be hosting Davido.

The Tour would provide ample opportunity for him to gain further grounds on competitors and also provide a platform for individual artistes from the aforementioned states to showcase their craft.

But most importantly, this might be Davido’s opportunity to cement his status as a major player in the Nigerian music industry . He is arguably the hottest act on the continent at the moment (and has been since his debut), and a well-orchestrated national tour, complete with choreographed sets and legitimate merchandise would further set him apart from the rest.

Davido is back to basics and with the year just beginning the stage is set for the return of the king.
