Some Legislators Behave Like Illiterates – Jimoh Ibrahim

Published

on

Business mogul, Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim , has recently lashed out at Nigerian legislators over the way they handled the investigation of Air Nigeria. However, the usually soft-spoken business mogul, has spoken out against them. The angry businessman did hold back his anger while describing the way the legislators handled the investigation when he was summoned.

According to him, “some legislators behave as if they are not educated. I went to the hearing because my name was mentioned. While I was seated there, the chairman was making all sorts of false statements based on a petition by a former staff who stole our money,” he fired.

“Why should they downgrade themselves so low, as to be taking evidence from an accused person? What kind of madness was that? The weight of evidence from an accused person is weak… Unfortunately, this is not a country where one can easily get justice. I should be commended for what I am doing with Air Nigeria… were you not in the country when GTBank took Virgin Nigeria to court for winding up because of huge debt? It was at the point of winding up that I bought it, saving thousands of jobs. I paid GTBank $11 million. My group employs over 28,000 Nigerians. That is not a small number. I should be encouraged.”

The Nigerian lawmakers have been at the receiving end of very harsh descriptions in recent times. Words such as “hungry” has been used to describe them; but the most popular was the “rogue” and “armed robbers” tag placed on the lawmakers by former president, Olusegun Obasanjo.

    I think the man is saying the truth. I don’t think they know their functions. they lack basic knowledge of their calls or they can’t face the truth.and if Legislature can function well then, no hope for the citizens. no probing has been successfully done nor prosecute, every work is a par-boiled job.OBJ has named them better. “Rogue and armed robbers”. if we know let shun them

    @Nelson hope you are not being sentimental? cos we tend to be when we dont simply like someone. However, why did you leave his companies? Is it for a better job opportunity or was your appointment terminated. Please I only ask to ascertain the level of fairness in your statement.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
