GIST: Obesere Finally Absolved Of Rape Allegation

Published

Obesere

Investigations are not over, but Fuji superstar, Alhaji Abass Akande Obesere has been freed of the rape allegation levelled against him by one Miss Olanike Olaiya.

Speaking with pressmen, the Lagos State Police Command Spokesperson, Mrs Ngozi Braide, said “As far as we’re concerned, and based on the investigations carried out so far on the matter, most of the allegations by Obesere’s accuser, Olanike Olaiya were fabricated.

Although, they both admitted having canal knowledge of each other, there was absolutely nothing to show that Nike was raped as she claimed. It was a frame -up because the lady has refused to honor police invitation.

And the doctor’s report available to us has shown that she was not raped. We’re made to understand that this lady on her own went to Obesere’s house in search of Obesere, and that she spent the night there. She was there cooking and everybody in the house ate.

People in that house have equally made statements. I think there was a mutual relationship between the two of them. But investigation is still in progress. Police would not rest until we get to the root of the matter and we will make the outcome known to the public.” She said

Speaking his mind to the latest development, Obesere said “I thank God I have been vindicated by the outcome of the investigations so far conducted by the police. What’s next is to enter the studio for my next album. I thank God that people have identified with me so far. I am very sure the police will soon get to the root of the matter.”

It is to be noted that Obesere had earlier released a VCD about the rape allegations which has been doing well in the market.

National Broadcast: PDP Slams Buhari Over 'Disappointing, Empty' Speech – PDP

Media users have reacted after President Muhammadu Buhari addressed the nation.

The address took place at 7pm on Thursday, October 22. Two days after End SARS protesters were shot at the Lekki toll gate. The shootings degenerated into chaos.

While speaking to Nigerians today, the president stated that Nigerians “misconstrued” the “promptness” with which the government acted on the End SARS demands “as a sign of weakness”

He added that “human lives have been lost” and properties have been destroyed “in the name of the End SARS protests.”

He then listed the “measures and initiatives” the government has put in place for “youths, women and the most vulnerable groups in our society.”

He then called on youths “to discontinue the street protests.”

After Buhari’s speech, Nigerians took to Twitter to express despair and disappointment. Some pointed out that he didn’t address the Lekki shooting and the lives lost. Most said they have no more hope in Nigeria and expressed eagerness to leave the county.

Maza Maza warehouse: Distribution of COVID-19 palliatives was halted due to #EndSARS protest - Lagos govt

The Lagos State Government has condemned the vandalisation of the warehouse at Mazamaza housing the food palliative packages donated to the government by the Private Sector Coalition against COVID-19 (CACOVID) group.

Recall that a mob on Thursday, October 22, vandalised the warehouse where COVID-19 palliatives are kept at Maza Maza in Amuwo Odofin Local Govt Area and looted palliatives. The warehouse is located on Benster Crescent, popularly known as Monkey village.

A statement signed by the Acting Commissioner, Agriculture, Abisola Olusanya, said the items belong to the Southwest, contrary to social media reports that they are all for Lagos, adding that distribution was on-going but had to be halted due to #EndSARS protests.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had on September 22nd 2020, formally taken receipt of the food palliatives from the CACOVID team meant for distribution to the indigent,” the statement reads.

The State had repackaged its share of the consignment and was distributing it before the protests that have affected activities in the State. The repackaging was being done to account for every beneficiary, according to the agreement with the CACOVID Group, which monitored the process,”

“The warehouse in question is not State-owned and its usage was made available to the CACOVID group. The distribution was on-going but had to be halted due to protests, before the invasion of the warehouse today.

“For effective distribution of the food palliatives, groups such as Transport Unions, Ethnic Groups, Religious Associations, Artisans and Tradesmen Association, Marketmen and Women Association, People Living with Disabilities, Orphanages and Old Peoples’ Homes among others were being used as the distribution channels to their members.

“The State Government, however, regrets the invasion of the warehouse and appreciates the support offered by the CACOVID group to the citizenry of Lagos.”
