Fashola Arrest a police officer for breaking one of the Okada rules

Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola yesterday arrested a police officer who rode a 100CC engine motorcycle popularly called Okada on the Agege Motor Road, Ikeja.

The officer, Mr. Ebahan Johnson was accosted on the ever busy express road by the Governor during an inspection of projects in the Lagos-West senatorial district.

Johnson, who had earlier resisted arrest, surrendered on realising it was the Governor. Fashola had warned that Okada should not ply the express road with a motorcycle with such capacity and without helmet.

Fashola said: “There is no one that is above the law. If anyone cannot submit itself to the law of the state, then that person should please leave.” He warned that the state government will not condone any act by anyone violating the state’s road traffic law which was signed to bring sanity into road transportation. “There is no society where laws are not broken but the state government will increase its enforcement in order for residents to comply with the law. And as we move on the road and we see any one violating the law, we will stop and arrest them”, Fashola said. On the officer, the governor stated that the officer would be handed to the Commissioner of Police, Umar Manko for proper prosecution. “I am sure he would be prosecuted,” he said.

Army to kick civilians out of military barracks nationwide

The eviction of non-soldiers from barracks is coming on the heels of two successful attacks by suspected terrorists in the first two days of this week.

Two car bombers had on Sunday struck at the St. Andrew Military Protestant Church inside the prestigious Armed Forces Command and Staff College, in Jaji, near Kaduna. The college houses the officers and men of the Infantry Centre and School as well as the Nigerian Army Peace Keeping Centre .

Also on Monday, gunmen, numbering 40, launched an attack on the office of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Abuja, where suspects were being held. Two policemen and one of the gunmen were killed in the incident.

Ihejirika said at the closing of the Chief of Army Staff Annual Conference in Asaba, Delta State, that he had already issued a directive to commanders in charge of military formations to take immediate action in ridding the military formations of illegal occupants. The COAS also warned that the leadership of the Army would ensure that reported lapses were treated decisively.

 He said, “That one (purging the barracks of illegal occupants) is obvious. I have already informed the commanders and they know. The commanders would not wait for the Chief of Army Staff before taking action. Rather, from next week, I want to see action in respect of illegal squatters and similar things.” The Commander in charge of Army Engineering, Maj. Gen. Olaniyi, who took the last presentation at the conference, had called attention to the fact that barracks being rehabilitated were accommodating a large number of civilians in places like the Ikeja Cantonment and Asaba. Olaniyi, who said that the Ojo Cantonment had become haven for criminals, warned that unless decisive steps were taken, even foreigners would be more than soldiers in some rehabilitated barracks. He had said that the number of civilians living in the cantonment was even more than that of soldiers. Ihejirika insisted that the bombing at the Armed Forces Command and Staff College was avoidable, stressing that absence a perimeter fence did not offer any commander an excuse to allow such an incident to happen. He said that about 80 of the barracks in the country had not been fenced and urged the commanders to put in their best in the area of intelligence gathering and security maintenance. Meanwhile, Ihejirika has promised Nigerians “a more comprehensive action by the military and all the security agencies” in 2013. He said that the military would be decisive in 2013, stressing that it was part of the decision of the conference that unit commanders must pay more attention to effective liaison, supervision and monitoring of personnel under them. The COAS said, “Nigerians should expect more comprehensive action by the military and all the security agencies. Part of the decisions arrived at is that unit commanders should liaise more and they should supervise and monitor their personnel more closely than they had done in the past. So 2013 would be decisive.” He said that the Nigerian Army had been collaborating with other security agencies, including the Nigerian Police, the Nigerian Intelligence Agency and foreign bodies to enhance intelligence gathering and dissemination. He said the conference also agreed on the need for “national intelligence fusion” to enhance intelligence gathering.

He said, “The conference also emphasised the need for national intelligence fusion. What it means is that all the various measures are going to be fast tracked to ensure that intelligence is further enhanced. “And you should know that it is a running battle because the people you are fighting are people within the country. So they know what measures you are even taking. They know that. So that is why I also drew the attention of commanders to devise new tactics in dealing with the problem. “Certain groups are going to be set up too to monitor the commanders in the field and, no mistake about it, command responsibility is one area we will emphasise more next year.” Ihejirika also ordered the painting of all operational vehicles of the Nigerian Army donated by state governments, corporate bodies, in Army colour.

 He also said that the different uniforms of the Army should be used only for authorised specified activities. Also on Thursday, the Agence France Presse reported that Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, had expressed solidarity with global jihadists, saying the United States and Britain “should witness that we are with our mujahedeen brothers.” Shekau, in the 39-minute video posted on jihadists forum, was quoted to have said in Arabic that,”The world should witness, and America, Britain, Nigeria and other crusaders, meaning America and Britain, should witness, and the Jews of Israel who are killing the Muslims in Palestine should witness… that we are with our mujahedeen brothers in the cause of Allah everywhere.”

Basketmouth and owners of the other fun spots affected as police raid mainland

According to report the raid scared away many patrons which has led to loss of millions of naira in revenue.

On Friday November 23rd, the Nigerian police, without warning or any particular reason, raided four clubs located on University Road, Akoka, Yaba Lagos. The raid, led by the DPO from Yabo-Sabo police station, affected Basketmouth's EmBARssy lounge located at 12 University Rd, where at least 10 individuals were arrested without any reason.

They were released the next day. The police officers were said to have harassed and arrested people at will in the midnight raid which saw them roving all around the clubs and lounges in three Black-Maria and two Hilux vehicles. However, one club (Road Runners) which was relaunching that same night was not raided like the others in the neighbourhood, prompting other patrons to ask questions.

Please continue... People are alleging that the owners of Road Runners (Diran and Sobowale) may have deliberately used the police to frustrate EmBARssy Lounge, which has since become the most patronized fun spot in in the area. Basketmouth and owners of the other fun spots affected by the raid are planning to petition the Lagos State Commissioner of Police against the action of the Sabo-Yaba police station officers, as the raid reportedly scared away many patrons which has led to loss of millions of naira in revenue. Meanwhile, the Lagos State Police Command has described the allegation of being biased as unfounded and an act of wickedness. Reacting on the police raid, the PPRO, Ngozi Braide told reporters that the affected club owners were only being sentimental. "It is not possible for any club or lounge to control the Lagos State Police Command and the commissioner of Lagos.

That is wickedness on the part of anybody insinuating this. It was a joint operation by Rapid Response Squad (RRS) and Area C. It happened in the early hours of saturday. They targeted black spots" Braide explained.

Ex-banker suspends hunger strike after 2 Weeks as Fashola intervenes

Olubiyi Odunaro, the 53-year-old do you guys remember when I posted this,lets hope Gov.Fashola comes to his aid on his request

“Governor Fashola who was worried about his state of health formed an inter-ministerial committee comprising medical, legal and welfare officials and directed me to lead the team to persuade him to end his hunger strike. “As a responsible government we don’t want a dead casualty in our hands as a result of this protest. Once he ends this protest, we would first provide him medical service while the Lagos State Directorate of Citizens Rights would engage the authorities concerned in a comprehensive dialogue.”

Akinsola said the Lagos State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Ade Ipaye, had given him his word on free legal services to Odunaro and other ex-workers of non-consolidated banks seeking the payment of their entitlements if the negotiations become unfruitful. “We will mediate and talk to the right people and we believe reason will prevail in this matter and if not, lawyers from the Lagos State Ministry of Justice will work in conjunction with the lawyer of the group and ensure that justice prevails and everyone of them gets their entitlement,” he added. John Ogunniyi, who led a legal team from the Public Complaints Commission, implored Odunaro to end the hunger strike.

 He said, “The Lagos Commissioner of the Public Complaints Commission, Funso Olukoga, sends his word that you end this protest and go back home while we look into your complaints. “We’ve listened to the complaints and we are going back to report to the commissioner and see the best we can do concerning it. “We are making this appeal because of your health and the negative consequences it may have on you.

The commissioner has given us the authority to ensure that the matter is resolved.” After persuasion and engagement by the state officials and consultation with members of the Association of Ex-Staff of Non-Consolidated Bank, who had gathered at the site which lasted for about three hours, Odunaro who clocked 53 on Monday announced the suspension of the protest. He said, “This struggle is not only about myself; it’s about the right of over 14,000 ex-workers of non-consolidated banks who are ably represented here today. “The Lagos State Government and the PCC have given me and my people their word and I would hold on to it. My other colleagues too have appealed to me to give the state government the opportunity to play their part in this matter.

 “In view of this, I announce the suspension of my hunger strike for two weeks to enable me to go for medical treatment and allow the state government play its part in this debacle.” President, Association of Ex-Staff of Non-Consolidated Bank, Magnus Maduka, said, “We will be leveraging on the clout of the state government and the promises of the Public Complaints Commission to get our entitlements which we have been fighting for for about seven years.” took him to the Medical Emergency of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital for medical attention.
