Obasanjo Knows About Bola Ige’s Killing – Adebanjo

Published

Fourteen years after the gruesome murder of the then Justice Minister and Attorney-General of the Federation, Chief Bola Ige, Afenifere leader, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, has stated that the government of President Olusegun Obasanjo, cannot absolve itself of the murder.

Adebanjo told Sunday Telegraph that “The Federal Government of that period murdered Chief Bola Ige, and incidentally, instead of confessing, they passed the buck, accusing Ige’s political associates of the murder.”

The Yoruba leader lamented how “the Number one Chief Law Officer of the Federation at that time could be killed in his house in such a ridiculous manner, when all the six security aides attached to him vacated their duty posts at the same time and investigation into the murder was bungled.”
He recalled that that period in Nigeria’s democratic history during the tenure of President Olusegun Obasanjo, was characterised by “massive high profile politically-motivated killings of Chief Harry Marshall, Aminasori Dikibo, Chief Dipo Dina and Chief Funsho Williams.”

“These were sad incidents in our political history for such persons to have been killed in such questionable circumstances. To worsen matters, in the case Chief Bola Ige, they even accused Chief Abraham Adesanya and me as his possible killers, instead of focusing on thorough investigation into the matter,” he said.

The killers, he said, were not only smart but they also diverted attention from the main issue.

He argued that accusing Ige’s associates of killing him was a very feeble jibe, “because the mere fact that politicians in the same party disagree on principles and ideologies does not culminate into political assassination.”
Adebanjo further accused the media for “praising him (Obasanjo) to the high heavens,” despite the fact that all those murders occurred during his tenure.

“You media are praising him to high heavens, what has he done? The sad part of it is that even the All Progressives Congress refers to Obasanjo as a navigator. It is sad.”

    As a concerned citizen of the Federal republic of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasunjo has not achieved anything to deserve praise of any sort, talking about corruption, he’s one of our ex-presidents that legalized it, all the money he wasted on power,what do we get? Story, all the contractors he awarded the job,was any of them arrested? no. Another person in is IBB. Am still believing God that Buhari ‘ll revisit their administration if not today,later.

Reacting to Lai Mohammed’s call for social media regulation, the famous rapper asked the Nigerian government to feed social media with contents of their completed projects and earn accolades rather than advocate for its regulation.

According to the musician, only those who are afraid of their failures being exposed are afraid of social media.

He tweeted, “Who is us? Social media spreads what you feed it. Feed social media with positive works you have done and it will be spread it. You will in turn get respect and accolades. Only those who do not want their unproductive, failed selves exposed are afraid of social media. #DoYourWork.”

Protest against police brutality: Protesters loot shopping mall in Philadelphia (Video)

Protesters in have taken to the streets to break into and loot into businesses for a second night after officers in Philadelphia shot and killed a black man who was holding a knife in an encounter that city officials say raises questions.

The protests began after a Philadelphia Police officer fatally shot a Black man in West Philadelphia.

Protesters gathered in West Philadelphia around 7 p.m. Tuesday, October 27, and marched to the 18th District police headquarters.

Also, Tuesday night, the lawyer for the family of Walter Wallace Jr., who was shot dead by police, said the family had called for an ambulance, not police, to get him help with a mental health crisis.

The death of Walter in front of his family members sparked outrage, which in turn sparked demonstrations and then lootings as hoodlums took advantage.

Philadelphia police said that two officers were hurt during Tuesday night’s unrest, but they didn’t reveal the extent of their injuries.

Along with the protest, more looting occurred in the city Tuesday night and continued into Wednesday, despite Wallace Jr.’s family’s denunciation of such actions.

Many cars could be seen pulling up to the shopping centers as people ran in and out of stores with carts full of merchandise and even televisions. Police would move in and scatter the looters, but people would sometimes return once the officers left.
