Commotion As Oniraniken,Oba Adewale Adeniji Stockpiles Arms For Land Grabbers — Invades, Unleashes Mayhem On Ogun Community

Oniraniken- The residents of Okerala Odofin, Okelara Apena Seriki village, Okerala Tarogun village, IpaVillage, Ososa Village, Simawa in area of Sagamu, Ogun State are currently living in fear over series of attacks by unknown gunmen disguised as land grabbers which reportedly have backings of the traditional ruler, Oniraniken Of Iraniken, Oba Adewale Adeniji.

It would be recalled that Family members of the Oniraniken, Sagamu, Ogun State, have disagreed with the traditional ruler over his alleged claim that a disputed farmland around Okerala, Simawa area of Sagamu, measuring 4,000 hectares, was an inheritance from his forebears.

While some residents have fled the areas for safety, others who have no place to go were forced to live in fear.

However, a source has confirmed to our reporter that the monarch takes pleasure in unleashing mayhem on these communities simply because of a bogus court verdict in his possession.

“The usual way of land grabbers hoax is to divide themselves into two; to represent two families in court, and they always attend every court proceeding without the consent or knowledge of the main family they took to court; whereas the inhabitants of those areas he said he got judgment were not even informed about any court case”. This is how Oniraniken, Oba Adewale Adeniji and his cohorts got their supposed 1,000 hectares of land, but duplicitously translated the verdict to be 4,000 hectares; and then started confiscating other people’s land”.

‘In quest for justice, Indigenes of the community staged a peaceful protest to the Governor’s Office, also to Akarigbo of Remo and some other significant quarters.’

Oniraniken of Iraniken, Oba Adewale Adeniji Resorted To Self-Help:

The recent Judicial Staff Association of Nigeria (JUSUN) closure and court embarking on strike caused a delay in various positive actions.

Our source said: “The court ambiguity gave the monarch a fortuitous audacity to take laws into his own hands. He started giving some mobsters weaponries and other dangerous objects to terrorize and sack the people from their farmland. Using land grabbers to forcefully take over about 4,000 hectares of farmland belonging to 14 Makun communities”.

When our reporter visited the region, some of the residents shared their ugly experiences in the hands of the hoodlums even as they made it clear that their lives is no longer safe as kidnappings, robberies and other heinous attacks are main areas of focus for these criminals just to force them vacate the community belonging to them.

Divine Intervention:

On receiving an intelligence report, special strike force from the office of Inspector General of Police came to rescue and apprehended three of the gunmen who allegedly took part in the ill-fated land grabbing exercise at Oke Rala village, Simawa area of Sagamu, Ogun state.

The Police force special squad said: “It received distress calls from residents of Shimawa over killings, kidnapping, banditry and armed robbery which made them swing into action. During the operation, One locally-made pistol, two caliber pistols, several live cartridges and expended cartridges were recovered from the land grabbers while others are at large”.

The three suspects arrested are Afeez Sunday; 41yrs old “m” of Ikorodu LGA, Surajudeem Isiaka; 33yrs old “m” of Ikorodu, and one Muranikeji Ogunkeye; 32yrs old “m” of Lagos state. They have since on Thursday whisked away to Abuja by the special force for questioning. Their alleged sponsor, Oba Adewale Adeniji was also declared wanted by the Police force after searching his palace but noticed the troublemaker had absconded.

Kano Court Ruling: It Is Sanusi’s Destiny Not To Be Emir Again – Professor Mefor

Kano Court Ruling: It Is Sanusi's Destiny Not To Be Emir Again - Professor Mefor

Kano Court Ruling: It Is Sanusi’s Destiny Not To Be Emir Again – Professor Mefor

 

 

Professor Law Mefor, a renowned political analyst, says Justice Abdullahi Liman’s landmark ruling annulling the reinstatement of Sanusi Lamido as Emir of Kano suggests his fate is not tied to the throne.

Mefor, in an interview on Arise TV, said Governor Abba Yusuf’s assent to the amended Kano Emirate law and Sanusi’s reinstatement defied a court order, demonstrating disregard for the rule of law.

 

Kano Court Ruling: It Is Sanusi's Destiny Not To Be Emir Again - Professor Mefor

According to him, Sanusi’s initial dethroning was a consequence of his actions, which contravened traditional and legal norms.

He, therefore, said the court’s overturning of all actions taken after the amended law was passed, including Sanusi’s appointment, has sealed his fate.

“The judge ruled for a return to status quo, and the interpretation is clear; go back to where the matter was before it came before me,” Professor Mefor said.

“The status of the Kano Emirate before the matter was brought before the court was Emir Ado Bayero in charge.”

He added: “Some of us were not happy that Sanusi went to become the Emir of Kano, knowing fully well that he was an asset to the nation.

“He is an activist and intellect who offers more at the national level. He’s not supposed to handle a subdued role where he cannot express himself. His reinstatement is very controversial”.

The governor’s action, according to Professor Mefor, “was only trying to fulfil his campaign promises, but this should have been done by following the due process of the law. Why the rush? Follow the law.”

He emphasised that “to go ahead to reinstate him against a subsisting order is an invitation to anarchy, knowing the volatility of Kano. History has repeated itself.”

Professor Mefor stressed that “we must allow the rule of law to take its course. Sanusi’s destiny lies elsewhere, and Kano State can now move forward in peace.”

UK richest family jailed

UK richest family jailed

UK richest family jailed

 

 

 

Sadly, the richest family in Uk is in a mess. A Swiss court handed jail sentences to four members of Britain’s richest family on Friday for exploiting Indian staff at their Geneva mansion.

The Hindujas — who were not present in court — were acquitted of human trafficking, but convicted on other charges in a stunning verdict for the family whose fortune is estimated at 37 billion pounds ($47 billion).

 

 

Prakash Hinduja and his wife Kamal Hinduja each got four years and six months, while their son Ajay and his wife Namrata received four-year terms, the presiding judge in Geneva ruled.

 

 

The cases stem from the family’s practice of bringing servants from their native India and included accusations of confiscating their passports once they were flown to Switzerland.

 

 

Prosecutors argued the Hindujas paid their staff a pittance and gave them little freedom to leave the house.

The family denied the allegations, claiming the prosecutors wanted to “do in the Hindujas”.

The Hindujas reached a confidential out-of-court settlement with the three employees who made the accusations against them.

 

 

Despite this, the prosecution decided to pursue the case due to the gravity of the charges.

Geneva prosecutor Yves Bertossa had requested a custodial sentence of five and a half years against Prakash and Kamal Hinduja.

Aged 78 and 75 respectively, both had been absent since the start of the trial for health reasons.

In his closing address, the prosecutor accused the family of abusing the “asymmetrical situation” between powerful employer and vulnerable employee to save money.

Household staff were paid a salary between 220 and 400 francs ($250-450) a month, far below what they could expect to earn in Switzerland.

 

 

“They’re profiting from the misery of the world,” Bertossa told the court.

– ‘Not mistreated slaves’ –

 

But the Hinduja family’s defence lawyers argued that the three plaintiffs received ample benefits, were not kept in isolation and were free to leave the villa.

“We are not dealing with mistreated slaves,” Nicolas Jeandin told the court.

Indeed, the employees “were grateful to the Hindujas for offering them a better life”, his fellow lawyer Robert Assael argued.

Representing Ajay Hinduja, lawyer Yael Hayat had slammed the “excessive” indictment, arguing the trial should be a question of “justice, not social justice”.

Namrata Hinduja’s lawyer Romain Jordan also pleaded for acquittal, claiming the prosecutors were aiming to make an example of the family.

He argued the prosecution had failed to mention payments made to staff on top of their cash salaries.

“No employee was cheated out of his or her salary,” Assael added.

 

Some staff even asked for raises, which they received.

With interests in oil and gas, banking and healthcare, the Hinduja Group is present in 38 countries and employs around 200,000 people.
