HRH Tinuade Slam Nigerian Government And Traditional Rulers For System Failure


Says Our Government Already Sold Nigerians to second slavery.


The highly revered international cultural icon, who is the traditional title holder of EreluvOodua of Aye kingdom and Irawo Oni of Yoruba land, HRH Erelu Tinuade Mabel Onaneye has on Tuesday 8th of  December, 2020 berated the Nigerian Government at all levels and traditional rulers for the system failure and all the ugly incidents happening in Nigeria. Safety, security, hunger, starvation, and diseases.


The renowned social crusader, Erelu Tinuade made the declaration from her base in Texas, United States through a release she signed and made available to the press and general public via her media aide, Saint-Olawale Jimoh on the beautiful Tuesday morning at about 9 am. Erelu condemned the unbearable shapes that events are taking back home and wonder if one can still call Nigeria a home country.


'No right-thinking Nigerian anywhere in the world will be comfortable hearing those horrible stories and happening from Nigeria. For instance, take a look at the recent massacre of about 110 rice farmers in Borno or the never-ending killings of innocent Nigerians in Southern Kaduna. The economy is collapsing and we are sliding back into recession for the second time. A Dollar now goes for about N510 judging by the current exchange rate. What about the outrageous amount of money being bandied about and stolen from the Niger Delta Development Commission? In the midst of all these, kidnapping and rapping haven't stopped yet we have a government at all levels.'She lamented.

'Regrettably, our traditional rulers who are supposed to call these politicians and government to order are shying away from the truth because of what they will eat. Today they're all equally bearing the brunt of their inaction and negligence. In Odigbo, the Olori and the two grown-up daughters of the king were abducted and abuse by herdsmen. Around the same time, another highly respected monarch, the Olufon of Ifon in Ondo state was brutally shot and killed by those suspected to be hoodlums or kidnappers. The citizens are no safer, All these calls for sobber reflection.' She continued.


Erelu Tinuade didn't fail to also mention the high rate of unemployment in Nigeria. She challenged all the 36 State Governors to publicly declare how many jobs they created since assuming office saying all they do is paying lips service to employment generation. She opined there no more office job for graduates except factory works owned by the wicked Chinese and Indian employers who enslave our youths for peanuts they call salaries and you dare not challenge them because they have the support of our government, another second slavery.


Erelu Tinuade concluded by calling on all Nigerians back at home to get ready for another national protest to reclaim our land and hold our leaders accountable for all the negligence and recklessness as she believes it's the only way to restore sanity into the country and our economy.

Lagos East by-elections - a vote of confidence in Sanwo-Olu's government


As the euphoria generated by the peaceful conduct and the unassailable victory of the ruling All Progressives Congress,APC, in the recent by-elections in the Lagos East Senatorial District and Kosofe 2 of the Lagos State House of Assembly, continues to reverberate throughout the nation, the eloquent message therein should not be lost on all and sundry.

Court Directs IG to Prosecute Gbadamosi for Forgery, Perjury



·        Adjourns hearing till January


A Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi has ordered the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Adamu to prosecute the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the December 5 bye-election in Lagos East, Mr. Babatunde Gbadamosi for alleged forgery and perjury.


The presiding judge, Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke gave the order on Tuesday following a motion filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC), Lagos State, asking the court to compel the IG to investigate and prosecute Gbadamosi.


Before the order was granted on Tuesday, counsel to the APC, Mr. Olukayode Enitan (SAN) told the court that he had filled motion exparte, affidavit in support, statement in support, verifying affidavit and written address as part of conditions to grant his application.


In addition to these court processes, the counsel added that he had equally filed exhibits in support of the affidavit and further affidavit already filed before the court


The counsel, also, argued that all the conditions necessary for the grant of the application had been fulfilled, thereby requesting the court to grant the motion.


After listening to the argument of the counsel, the presiding judge agreed with learned Silk and consequently granted the application while he adjourned hearing of the originating summons for Mandamus till January 28.


In Suit No: FHC/L/CS/1661/2020, the APC had applied for the issuance of a prerogative Writ of Mandamus to compel the IG to discharge his public duty to investigate the PDP candidate for allegations of forgery, perjury, fraud and failure to participate in the mandatory national youth service.

Pursuant to Order 34 Rules 1 and 3 of the Federal High Court (Civil Procedures) Rules, 2019, the APC had, through its counsel, filed an application asking the court to investigate and prosecute Gbadamosi.


It had argued that the allegations “are offences under the provisions of Sections 465, 467 and 117 of the Criminal Code Act, 2004 and the National Youth Service Corps (Amendment) Act, which according to the party, placed duty upon the IG to investigate and prosecute the PDP candidate.”


Consistent with the Criminal Code Act and NYSC Act, the APC had contended that the IG “is under a duty to investigate and prosecute Gbadamosi for the offences of forgery, perjury, fraud and failure to participate in the National Youth Service as contained in Form EC9 and CF001 he submitted to INEC.”


The party had justified its claims on the ground that the PDP candidate had committed several offences bothering on forgery, fraud and perjury, for which the IG ought to investigate and prosecute him.


It had averred that the IG “is by virtue of the Police Act duty bound to investigate complaints and petitions lodged at his office. The petition was received and duly acknowledged November 11, 2020.


“Despite being in receipt of the petition, the inspector-general has failed, neglected and or refused to commence investigation of the PDP candidate as requested.”


On these grounds, the APC said it was aggrieved; now seeking to compel the inspector-general “to perform its statutory duties under the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) and the Police Act.”


In another litigation with Suit NO: FHC/L/CS/1659/2020, the APC sued Gbadamosi and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for allegations of forgery, perjury, fraud and failure to participate in the one-year mandatory national youth service.


The party had, in its writs of summons, claimed that it discovered certain discrepancies in the certificates, which according to the APC, were indicative of the fact that the WAEC certificate Gbadamosi submitted to the INEC might have been falsified.


It had claimed that some of the discrepancies observed in Gbadamosi’s WAEC certificate include the number of subjects the PDP candidate allegedly sat for “is different from the number of subjects he sat for as contained on the website of WAEC.


“Also, the grades he claims to have received via the certificate is different from that contained on the official website of WAEC,” the APC declared in its writs of summon.”

Iru community raises alarm over Oba Oniru's alleged Despotic rulership

Distasteful reports coming from our once cherished Iruland hold that the defacto-king by circumstance, Gbolahan Lawal has turned into a pseudo-monarch monster and he’s hell-bent on destroying all the value that is left of Iru’s heritage and historical pastime.


Reports reveal that the Oniru, ordered his thugs to take to the streets to intimidate and suppress anyone who challenge his excesses and recklessness in Iruland.


Video shows how some men were attacked by Gbolahan’s thug on Saturday, December 5, 2020, at a family shrine, where many people were severely injured and the 200 years old shrine was reduced to nothing.


An eyewitness who is currently undergoing traditional treatment after suffering convulsion due to the fetish charms used against him recounted that the thugs declared that anyone who is not in support of Oba Oniru (Gbolahan) will die untimely.


“Unfortunately, the new Oniru's reign within a year is already replete with examples of less than stellar leadership.


“Gbolahan's penchant for violence, murder, genocidal tendencies, and/or other deviancies is unquantifiable.


“Even when you know that the plot and conspiracy that brought you to royalty was riddled with lies, you don’t have to see others as enemies of the community.

 “The deafening silence of Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, and other stakeholders on this matter is also worrisome.

“Recall there was also a report of Prince Tijani Oniru, one of the sons of Oba Abiodun Idowu Oniru, the late Oniru of Iruland who died in 2019, attacked by Oba Gbolahan’s thug in July 2020, and up till date, nothing was done to address the situation.


“This is what conspiracy and imposed leadership have brought upon us in Iruland. We hope that the government will treat our situation as a matter of urgency, as his paranoia destroy us as a community,” he said.
