Leader of the Sufficient Grace and Truth Ministry, SGTM, Okinni in Osun state, Seun Adeoye has cried out over the presence of heavily armed policemen in his residence on Sunday.
Recall that the Bishop staged a-one-man protest in May in Osogbo against the federal government’s removal of fuel subsidy and the resultant price hike of the premium motor spirit, otherwise known as petrol.
Adeoye raised the alarm in a statement issued yesterday, where he noted that the police visit to his home may not be unconnected with his critical assessment of the policies of both the federal government and those of the Governor Rauf Aregbesola-led administration in Osun state.
He stated that though the policemen did not harass him, their mission to his house was suspicious.
Adeoye said, “I belong to a class of people who will not close their eyes to injustice and maladministration. I cannot withstand government’s anti-democratic ethos in a society expected to treat its people equally.
“I cannot choose to be mute and deaf when people are hungry and dying because of bad economic policies.
“If saying the truth is an offence, I am ready to die for it. As I mentioned during my protest, things are becoming more difficult for Nigerians and our government appeared not to have answers to myriads of problems facing the nation. I said Nigeria is in chain and I have not been proved wrong.
“I was surprised to see six stern looking and fully armed policemen storm my house on Sunday morning. They claimed to have come from Zone XI Command looking for some miscreants.
“Only one of the policemen wore uniform while others were on vests bearing police and they didn’t come with any police vehicle but a private car.
“First of all, there was no report of any threat to peace or crime in my area at Hallehuyah Estate and till now we haven’t heard of any.
“Secondly, my house was not the only one in the neighbourhood, yet mine was the only one visited.”
Nigerian lawmaker, Desmond Elliot has joined other Nigerian politicians in clamouring for regulation of social media.
The Lagos legislator and Nollywood actor, says Nigerian youths display rude behaviour on social media
In the video, the Actor-turned-Lawmaker called on the youth to get into Government if they are tired.
He said ;
Mr. Speaker, we need to adress certain things ;
The Nigerian Youth, The Social Media, The Social Influencers, All of these are making the narrative that we are seeing today, except we are joking with ourselves.
Social media is good but it has Negative impacts.
Let me thank you for condeming the killings and carnage that happened at Lekki. When i went through the comments i could not believe it Mr. Speaker, the curses, the abuses from children and i ask myslef, is this Nigeria ? What is going on?
Children cursing, people having the effontery to enter an Oba’s palace, hold the staff of office ? Culture is gone. Mr. Speaker, in the next 5 years, there will be no Nigeria if we don’t act now.
The youth is not only those who do the peaceful protest, but those who have looted and destroyed lives are also youths as well.
He also seized the opportunity to plead with Nigerian celebrities, social media influencers and motivational speakers to “tune down on the hate narrative.”
He said the youth have a constitutional means to change government and it is called the ‘PVC’.
He added ;
Go to the elections, if you are tired come and enter government. People are dying. The narrative must change.
