More exciting facts have emerged on the ongoing imbroglio between the PDP’s senatorial candidate OF Lagos West, Segun Adewale popularly known as Aeroland and his APC rival, Solomon Olamilekan Adeola widely referred to as Yayi shortly after signing a peace accord with the commissioner of Police on Thursday, January 29,2014.

Sahara Weekly’s check revealed that contrary to the widespread allegation that Aeroland boss, Adewale personally led a group of thugs to attack his rival on Saturday, January 31st, 2015,  insiders squealed that the reverse was the case.

According to our source, it was Yayi’s killer squad who actually perpetrated the act and went about with the weapon of propaganda to nail it on their opponent. Our sources even revealed to us that his group also attacked the Aerolands group on Sunday, February, 1, 2015 while on campaign tour at Bagary in Lagos State.Propaganda postPropaganda post3

According to our source, Yayi has at least eight mobile police escort while Aeroland has just two, “how can two mobile police officers confront someone with eight mobile escorts? That would have been suicidal.

Insiders also revealed to us that yayi allegedly has a killer squad (their full names and numbers will be published in our next publication, Sahara Weekly Magazine). They were responsible for some of the attacks reportedly unleashed on perceived enemies of Yayi.

Aside that, insiders alleged that yayi who is speculated to be fronting for one of the big shots in APC is using most of the funds to acquire over 100 houses and at least five bullet proof cars. “ most of his houses are similar and he has them scattered across the country especially in Lagos, Ibadan and Abuja. They include House Number 50 Moshood Abiola Crescent, Off Toyin, Ikeja Lagos

House Number 24, Bolodeoku Didiolu Court Ogba, Lagos

House Number 12, Siyanbola Close, off Abba Johnson Crescent, Adeniyi Jones, Ikeja. And his house at Alimosho is like heaven on earth.One of Yayi Houses in adeniyi jones

Furthermore, it was rumoured that “In 1998 while working for Guardian Newspaper, Yayi forged his direct boss’ signature for a fraud that ended his boss’s job. His former boss relocated to US where he currently drives Taxi for a living” (We would serve you more details of that in our next publication).

On Sunday, February, 1, 2015 when we spoke with yayi, he only said, “ Aeroland is mad”. On Monday, February 2, 2015, we called again and sent Yayi a text about these allegations but he refused to respond to us.

However, when we contacted Aeroland on this issue, he cleared the air and shed more light on the genesis of the battle between him and Yayi( we promised to serve it to you raw in our next publication on Sahara Weekly magazine).aero 1

However, his media team also responded via email to us.

In an exclusive chat with us with email to support it, his media people shed more light on the controversy.

‘We are responding to the propaganda trending in the media of Honourable Olamilekan Adeola Solomon of APC that his office was attacked this evening with gun shots fired by Honourable Segun Adewale as false and slight on our principal to score cheap political points because they know we are gaining grounds in our campaign to clinch the Lagos West Senatorial position.

We have seen pictures been circulated on social media claiming our campaign group unleashed mayhem on his campaign office which we dare say are malicious and a well prepared script written by Olamilekan Adeola Iyayi to misrepresent Honourable Segun Adewale.

The truthful account is as follows; our campaign team was returning from a massive and peaceful rally we held from Ajeromi Ifelodun to Ikeja where our convoy passing through Adeniyi Jones Ikeja was attacked with several gun shots fired by Honourable Olamilekan Solomon’s supporters and security people. It was the vehicle of Honourable Segun Adewale that was attacked and our security team led by the Nigerian Police Force gallantly shielded his vehicle from the attackers and the shots fired at him to ensure his safety.

Several shots were fired by his supporters at our vehicle which several were damaged but we never retaliated. The supposed picture been circulated on Social media we dare to say that the vehicle does not belong to Olamilekan Adeola Iyayi and neither was parked at his office. Why can’t the full picture of the vehicle been show with the number plate?

Nonetheless our team of security men led by the Nigerian Police Force details was able to avert a major attempt on the life of Honourable Segun Adewale. The news been circulated in social media is quite deeming of the person of the calibre of Honourable Olamilekan Adeola Solomon whom we believe is a distinguished gentleman but has shown how he lacks decorum and decency and also how desperate he is to win the elections by going the way of malicious and inciting propaganda.

We have filed a detailed report of the incident to the Divisional Police Headquarters in Ikeja and investigation has commenced and we will see to it that justice prevails on this matter.

This is the third time we would be attacked by his supporters as some days ago, our campaign office in Iyana Ipaja was also attacked by thugs working for Honourable Olamilekan Adeola Solomon.

We would like to reiterate for all to know that Honourable Segun Adewale abhors violence in any way or of any kind and frowns at such with all passion.

We would like to say also say to our supporters at this point not to engage in any form of reprisal on this ugly incident but rather to seek peace that we are known for.

Also, Honourable Segun Adewale is safe and well and we give thanks to God as the attempt on his life failed.

In the words of Martin Luther King Jr. “We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence.”

Nigerians hail Matawalle on proactive action on security

 

Nigerians from all walks of life have hailed the executive governor of Zamfara state, His Excellency, Governor Bello Matawalle, on his government’s proactive action on security in the State.

In an early morning phone in programme where security issues in the State was discussed, callers commended the latest action of the government on kidnappers.

 

 

 

 

 

It will be recalled that the State government has recently pronounced a death sentence on any kidnapper caught in the State. Most of the callers indicated that this pronouncement was long overdue in order to checkmate the current rising kidnapping cases not just in Zamfara state but generally in the country.

Governor Matawalle few days ago, threw his weight behind death penalty on those convicted for banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling and cultism in the State, when he signed into law a bill passed by the Zamfara State House of Assembly prohibiting and punishing terrorists, cattle rustling, cultism, kidnapping and other incidental offences.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The new law provides that any person found guilty of banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling, Cultism or being an informant to the bandits is liable to death penalty. Also under the law, anyone found guilty of aiding and or abetting the crimes mentioned is liable to life imprisonment, twenty years imprisonment or ten years imprisonment without option of fine.

Recently, Zamfara state has witnessed a new wave of rising kidnapping and banditry cases, a situation which ignited the call by the government for the citizens to pick up guns and arms to protect themselves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

However, while the state’s call for the citizens to take up arms, met with some form of reservations from different quarters, the current call for death penalty for kidnappers caught, has elicited great commendation for the government.

Matawalle was also commended on the radio phone in programme, for his foresight in providing good governance and infrastructure in the state and also for his usual swift responses to issues that affect the citizens of his state.

Obi and Kwankwaso have met on the possibility of merging to push out the All Progressives Congress and the New Nigeria People’s Party

 

 

 

 

 

 

However, there seems to be a stumbling block as no presidential candidate is ready to step down to be the other’s, running mate.

Announcing the development on Wednesday, the party wrote, “Labour Party today welcomed new members to our great party. New members include Chief Martin Agbaso & His Supporters, Dr Emeka Mandela (Presidential Aspirant of National Rescue Movement -NRM) who’s a presidential organization officially collapsed into the Labour Party for Peter Obi.”
