Nigerian actor, Emeka Amakeze has slammed a Twitter user who made an offensive tweet.

According to the Twitter user, men do not owe their wives fidelity because they bought her.

He referred to women as pets, stating that they should not demand allegiance from their owners.

 @AromaJon wrote

''As a High value man you owe no woman fidelity, not even your wife. SHe made the most of her prime, so it’s only fair you enjoy your prime years too. Moreover you married/bought her, she didn’t marry you. A pet cannot be demanding loyalty and allegiance from it’s owner.''


Emeka saw the tweet and found it distasteful. Responding, he wrote;

''I might not have a name for whatever is wrong with you but I am certain that it is highly complicated. Urgent medical attention is advised.''

The police have arrested a notorious member of the dreaded Eiye confraternity, Tunde Esuruoso, for attacking lodgers at a location in the Obantoko area of Abeokuta.

It was gathered that the police at the Obantoko divisional headquarters had received a distress call that the hotel was being attacked by cultists.

Consequently, the DPO of Obantoko, SP Ignatius Alimiekena, mobilized his patrol team to the scene, cordoned off the premises, making it difficult for the hoodlums, who had mingled with lodgers, to get out of the premises.

Confirming the incident, the Ogun State Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said there was a thorough search conducted on everyone within the premises, adding that “a locally fabricated double-barrel shotgun with one expended cartridge was found on Esuruoso.”

On interrogation, Oyeyemi said the suspect confessed to being an Eiye member, and that “the gun was handed over to him by his colleague, who is simply known as ‘Scatter’.”

Oyeyemi explained that the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered that the suspect be transferred to the anti-cultism section of the state CIID for discreet investigation, directing that his accomplices be hunted down.



Nigerians React to FG Planned Fuel Subsidy Removal, Petrol to N350/Litre

Nigerians React to FG Planned Fuel Subsidy Removal, Petrol to N350/Litre

The Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government had last week announced the impending removal of the subsidy.

 
Nigerians are not smiling over the federal government's plan to remove Fuel Subsidy.
 
The announcement was announced by FG last week. The removal of the subsidy will force petrol to go for N350 per litre.
 
The Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government had last week announced the impending removal of the subsidy and promised to replace the removal with a monthly payment of N5,000 transport allowance to 40 million poor Nigerians.
 
The federal government had revealed that the subsidy removal would commence in 2022.
 
A report by DailyPost gathered thoughts from people living in Osun state.
 
A social commentator, Afolabi Isaac, said the timing of the subsidy removal was wrong and the decision to grant poor Nigerians N5,000 in these hard times was an attempt to buy their silence.
 
Afolabi warned that if the federal government went ahead to implement it, civil society organisations were going to reject it and that would mean a call for civil disobedience.
 
He noted that the conditions were not rife and the government was insensitive to the plight of Nigerians who put them in office.
 
Another resident, Falade Emmanuel said as a civil servant, what concerned him the most is the effect it would have on his income.
 
Falade lamented that Nigerians who do not mean well for the country would hijack the gesture and many overnight millionaires would emerge.
 
He asked the government to carry the people along and make the grant a social programme, adding that a trustworthy person should be recruited to handle it.
 
He expressed worry that the transport grant may end up becoming an avenue for political appointees to reward their supporters and cronies.
 
On her part, a trader, Hephzibah Olanipekun disclosed that the decision of the federal government was going to affect her business.
 
She told DAILY POST that since her business involves her travelling to areas where she purchases her goods and resells in Osogbo, it meant that her cost of transportation was going to increase.
 
She explained that with increased transport fare, there is the possibility of the price of goods and services increasing.
 
While noting that with the monthly transport grant, a difference may be achieved, she added that residents like her should benefit from it without any hassle.
 
The Nigerian Senate, Trade Union Congress (TUC) and Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) have disagreed with the subsidy removal while the TUC and NLC have both threatened a showdown with the federal government.
 
While the Senate said there was no provision for such a grant in the 2022 budget, TUC expressed shock that government could come up with such an idea when negotiations on subsidy removal between the government and the Labour movement was still ongoing.
 
The Nigerian Labour Congress on its part described the development as an open invitation for unrest and revolt.

Nigerian billionaire businesswoman, Folorunso Alakija has opened up on why she stopped using jewellery

The Founder of Rose of Sharon Group stated this on Sunday, November 28 while ministering in Lagos at the Amazing Grace Pentecostal Church’s 25th anniversary, Church Times reports.

She told the congregation that it took ten days for God to stop her from using jewellery.

“I used to love jewellery. I had all kinds and the jewellery had to match every cloth I wore. In those days I used to tell God not to take jewellery from me. If anybody had come to me and told me not to wear jewellery, I would not have listened to the person. I would have wondered where that person is coming from. But by the time God started dealing with me on it, I had no option but to do away with it
,” she said.

The clergywoman, who is one of the richest women in Africa, said the turning point began when she started bleeding from her ear lobe while she was sleeping.

“That night I just suddenly found I was bleeding from my ear lobe. I did not sleep with earrings that night so I wondered what could have caused the bleeding. My ear lobe became sticky. When soap touched it while I was having my bath, it was hurting,
” she said.

The 70-year-old has business interests in different fields such as oil and gas and fashion.

Rafael van der Vaart

Rafael van der Vaart, a former Ajax and Real Madrid star, has slammed Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi after comparing him to Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo.

Van der Vaart also questioned Messi’s desire and passion by comparing his current form to his long-term rival, Ronaldo.

The Dutchman said Messi should be ashamed, adding the former Barcelona captain will never be born again as he does not seem to be trying to take PSG forward, while Ronaldo has been working very hard to do so with Man United.

Messi has scored just four goals in 10 appearances for PSG in all competitions so far this season, while Ronaldo has scored 10 goals in 14 appearances for Manchester United in all competitions.

The Argentine had an underwhelming game against Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday as PSG lost 2-1 at Etihad, while Ronaldo, on the other hand, netted a crucial opening goal in Man United’s 2-0 win against Villarreal to secure their place in the knockout rounds of the Champions League.

“It makes me sad. It’s a question of desire. Does he want it or not? When you compare him to Cristiano Ronaldo, one is fighting to take his team to the next level – and one isn’t,” Van der Vaart was quoted by Sportskeeda as saying.

“Messi walks now and then. I look at him and think, ‘Aren’t you ashamed?’ I’m just getting annoyed with Messi. It already started a bit with Ronald Koeman [at Barcelona].

“It was actually a refusal to work, that is not normal for such a player. And that’s a shame, because a player like this will never be born again.”

Rohr whose future as coach of the team remains in doubt despite guarding the Eagles to the playoff round of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers also wants to play one friendly game before they depart for the tournament.

He also hinted that he may not be there for the tournament.

“My plan is for the team to camp in Nigeria in December and then play a friendly in the country before departing for Cameroon early where we have very good conditions to prepare in Garoua where our team is playing.

“We will be very, very well prepared. We need to be ready for the first match against Egypt in Garoua.”


“But let us see if I can still decide if we are preparing. We will see.”


Rohr who is currently being owed two months’ salary by the Nigerian Football Federation has recorded 28 wins, 13 draws and 13 defeats in the 54 games he has been in charge of the team.

Sam Hawkins and his fiancee, Danielle Foster

A notorious burglar who was declared wanted after he escaped from jail last month has been pictured eating a piece of toast in bed with his fiancée.

Sam Hawkins announced his plan to marry Danielle Foster in a Facebook post from prison on October 9 and the next day he jumped over the fence at HMP Sudbury in Derbyshire.

The 34-year-old was last seen hiking down the A515 towards the Peak District town of Ashbourne with fellow escapee Darren McKay, 37.

Since then police forces have been searching for the 'dangerous criminal' and warning members of the public not to approach him.

 Yesterday, his fiancee added a temporary profile picture of them topless in bed with Hawkins seen eating a piece of toast. He was tagged along with four blue hearts.

Back on July 5 last year, she reportedly changed her relationship status to announce that she was now with Hawkins, who had been sentenced to nine years and four months jail a year earlier.

A source told MailOnline: 'It's crazy. Danielle has four kids and only got with him whilst he was in prison. She has never seen him on the outside so this picture must be recent.

'Up until now the only pictures she has shared of him are ones from prison call
s.'

Hawkins was part of a seven-strong south London gang who were jailed for a total of almost 50 years in June 2019.  They specialised in ramming shops and ripping out ATMs as well as residential burglaries and their crime spree lasted from September 2017 until their arrests in December 2018.

Officers in the area of south-east London targeted by the gang for their residential burglaries reported a 25 percent drop in such crimes after their arrests.

Hawkins and fellow burglar McKay were caught on camera at HMP Sudbury making their escape at 10.15pm on October 10.

The escape prompted a huge manhunt from police forces around the country and also appeared to trigger further escapes from the 'low security' jail

Why Tinubu Is Afraid Of Supporting Restructuring – Edwin Clark



Clark had insisted at a recent conference tahat restructuring of the country will douse the tensions and agitations which is almost tearing the country apart.

 


Bola Tinubu
A former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu has been called out over his lingering silence on the issue of restructuring of the country.
 
Popular Ijaw leader, Edwin Clark alleged that Tinubu is afraid to say his mind due to his 2023 ambition.
 
At a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday, Clark stated that restructuring of the country will douse the tensions and agitations which is almost tearing the country apart.
 
He stated that the APC national leader is scared to support restructuring in order not to jeopardize his chances of becoming the candidate of the ruling party in the 2023 presidential election.
 
Clark stated that Nigerians are ready to accept the implementation of the 2014 National Conference or the Nasir el-Rufai Committee on restructuring.
 
He said: “What several Nigerians want is actually the restructuring of the country in order to douse the tensions and agitations which is almost tearing the country apart today and is the main cause of the high insecurity being experienced.

“Nigerians are ready to accept the implementation of the 2014 National Conference, or the APC’s El-Rufai Committee Report, any of which will no doubt satisfy the generality of the Nigerian people.

“The Tinubus who brought restructuring to the manifesto of APC have not spoken because they fear that if they do, they will not be allowed to contest for the presidency of the country, come 2023.

“We want to reiterate that we are more patriotic than those who do not believe in the restructuring of Nigeria, even though we are very well pleased to shame them because the majority of other Nigerians also believe in the restructuring of the country. We, however, wish to advise those minority to follow us, the majority, as we mean well for the country.”

The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) while reacting through its National Publicity Secretary, Dr Rapulu Nduka, in an interview in Abuja on Wednesday said that the response by Mohammed means that the government doesn't want to know the truth about what happened at the Lekki tollgate on October 20th 2020.
 
Recall that the minister at a news conference in Abuja on Tuesday had described the leaked report as fake and a hoax, saying that the report was an “intimidation of the majority by a minority”.
 
He stated that the report circulating in social media cannot be relied upon, saying the document was full of discrepancies and errors.
 
The minister described the content of the report as “tales by moonlight”, insisting that there was no “massacre” at the Lekki toll gate on October 20, 2020.
 
But in a chat with The PUNCH, the NBA spokesman stated that the Nigerian government is not open-minded about the Lekki shooting and does not want to accept its mistakes.
 
He submitted the government’s dismissal of the report shows that it does not want to know the truth about what happened at the toll gate.
 
He said, “From all indications, the Minister of Information has always given the impression that this event never took place and that is the impression that most people were given from day one. I was not there; so many people were also not there. The judicial panel was set up to uncover the truth.

“It is only normal that we depend on the outcome of the panel to know what truly happened.

“Condemning the report even before the issuance of the white paper shows that the government is not open-minded and does not want to know the truth about what happened at the toll gate.”

Yekini in a paid advert on ThisDay newspaper on Wednesday described the leaked report of the Lagos State Judicial Panel as fake.

 

 
A Nigerian lecturer has spent millions on newspaper advert just to discredit the report of the Lagos State Judicial Panel.
 
According to a report by Sahara Reporters, the lecturer who teaches at the Lagos State University (LASU), Dr Abubakri Yekini in the advert said there was no “massacre” at the Lekki toll gate on October 20, 2020.
 
Yekini in a paid advert on ThisDay newspaper on Wednesday described the leaked report of the Lagos State Judicial Panel as fake.
 
While the advert is worth about N1.9million, Nigerian professors did not earn more than N416,000 as a monthly salary. Yekini is not yet a professor and should have spent approximately about five times his salary on the advert.
 
The Justice Doris Okuwobi-led panel submitted its report to the Lagos State Government, noting that at least nine persons were confirmed dead at the Lekki toll plaza when soldiers stormed the tollgate to disperse EndSARS protesters on October 20, 2020.

The 309-page report stated, “The atrocious maiming and killing of unarmed, helpless and unresisting protesters while sitting on the floor and waving their Nigerian flags and while singing the National Anthem can be equated to a massacre in context.”
 
The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who received the report on Monday, constituted a committee to bring forward a White Paper within the next two weeks to be considered by the Lagos State Executive Council.
 
However, Yekini, a lecturer at the Faculty of Law of the institution on Wednesday put a center spread to debunk the report.
 
Sources told SaharaReporters that the advert was about at least N1.9million.
 
“N2,418,750 is the full rate with VAT and discount of 20% is N1,935,000. He must have paid something like this, depending on the discount he got which is relative.

“Negotiations’ ability and talking to the right people; so the centre spread advert costs about N1.9million after discount. But it could vary depending on who he talked to and the discount he got. Where did he get the money when it cost more than his salary to do so?”
 
This is coming a few days after Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, University of Lagos chapter, Dr Dele Ashiru, revealed that Nigerian professors did not earn more than N416,000 as a monthly salary.
 
Ashiru during an interview on Channels Television, stated that university lecturers deserved better welfare packages.
 
He said, “No Nigerian professor earns more than N416,000 in a month as the total package. We are saying let us renegotiate this agreement so that people’s conditions of service will improve.

“As I speak to you, our members have been earning the same salary since 2009 till date. I don’t think there is any section of the Nigerian economy and society that has been so treated.

“The highest-paid professor which means that if he remains in the university system for the next 10-15 years will not earn more than the same amount he’s been earning since 2009."

We Ate Raw Cassava, Moved Through Different States During Two Weeks In Kidnappers’ Den – Victim Reveals

We Ate Raw Cassava, Moved Through Different States During Two Weeks In Kidnappers’ Den – Victim Reveals

The victim said he and other captives spent two weeks in the den of the bandits, adding that they were fed with raw cassava and maize.

 

 

It has been reported that a 200-level student of the Federal School of Surveying, Oyo State, identified only as Bolu, who was abducted in Akure, the state capital, and was released some days ago, said he saw hell in captivity.

The victim said he and other captives spent two weeks in the den of the bandits, adding that they were fed with raw cassava and maize.

Bolu said the kidnappers took them from Akure, Ondo State, to Kwara State, through Kogi and Kwara states.

He said, “Two weeks ago, we were returning from Lagos State. As we got to Akure, we ran into a checkpoint mounted by soldiers. They checked our vehicle and asked us to stay inside our car. After some minutes, they said we should follow them to the barracks. They also took people in six other vehicles.

“A man that was coming to Akure with his new wife was also kidnapped. They diverted us to Ekiti and from there to Kwara State. We spent two weeks with them inside the forest. We paid ransom before we were released.

“We stopped at Oyin in Ekiti and trekked to Kabba in Kogi State. From Kabba, they put us in a car and took us to Kwara State. We didn’t know where we were. We drank water from the stream and any available water. We only ate raw cassava and maize.

“They beat us and threatened to kill us. We were moved from one place to another inside the forest. I didn’t know the language they were speaking, but their hair was different from ours. They were dressed in full army uniform. They even had an army van parked by the roadside.

“It was one of our brothers that brought cash (ransom). They refused to collect the money through a bank transfer. They collected the ransom in Kwara State. It was one of them that told us we were at Umu Aran in Kwara State after we were released. He gave us N1,500 to board a vehicle back to our destination.”

Asked if the matter was reported to the police, Bolu said, “I have not gone to a police station to report since we paid ransom. My brother that was kidnapped with me just left the hospital.”

Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, had on Tuesday insisted that nobody was killed by soldiers at the Lekki tollgate

 

 
The real reason why the #EndSARS Lagos Panel report is being discredited by the Federal Government has been revealed.
 
FG insisted on Tuesday that there was no massacre at the Lekki Toll Gate shooting, even after the panel said there was a massacre.
 
Dr. Law Mefor, Director, Igbo Leadership Development Foundation School, has revealed why FG is bent on discrediting the report.
 
Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, had on Tuesday insisted that nobody was killed by soldiers at the Lekki tollgate when soldiers of the Nigerian Army allegedly opened fire on innocent protesters on October 20, 2020.
 
This was after the Panel of Investigation set up by the Lagos State Government to unravel the incident at the Lekki tollgate and other parts of the state indicted the military, the police and many others.
 
A top army officer, Maj. Gen. Taiwo, had told the panel that the order came from the then Chief of Army Staff, Lit.Gen. Tukur Buratai, who in turn got instructions from the President.
 
And Mr. Law Mefor, in an exclusive interview with DAILY POST, said the government had no choice but to deny the incident because the international community was now interested in it and someone could be tried at the International Criminal Court.

“The rejection of the EndSARS report by the Federal Government should not surprise anybody. Lai Mohammed described the report as ‘tale by moonlight’, declaring that nothing would make the federal government accept that there was a massacre at Lekki Gate,” he said.
 
“It means the government is not actually after the truth. Recall that the . Lai Mohammed earlier said that nobody died at Lekki long before the panel began their sitting.

“They also denied that soldiers were drafted to Lekki during the protest. They said the soldiers went with rubber bullets when the overwhelming video evidence showed they were lying and they had accepted the drafting of soldiers.

“Then, we heard the President say the EndSARS protest was meant to oust him from power.

“You can see what led to the drafting of soldiers to quell the peaceful protest since the thinking was that the protesters were coupists.

“The international community is now interested and the government wants to discredit the report at all costs. The reason is simple: you cannot use soldiers to quell peaceful protests and kill your own unarmed citizens in the process.

“It can lead to prosecution of somebody at the Intl Criminal Court, ICC. That’s what the shenanigans of Lai Mohammed is all about.

“But somebody should ask Lai Mohammed and Governor Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state: are soldiers supposed to be drafted to Lekki Gate to quell a peaceful protest even if the citizens waving the Nigerian flag and singing the national anthem were not killed?

“How do they sleep after killing their own defenceless people? I shudder about Nigerian citizens. Our life is now worth nothing,” he said.



Nigerian Soldiers Reportedly Kidnap Azeez Maruf 'Tula Oyo', Family Raises Alarm

Nigerian Soldiers Reportedly Kidnap Azeez Maruf 'Tula Oyo', Family Raises Alarm

Family members accused Major Moses of denying them access to Maruf, who they claimed has different health challenges due to his age.

 

Maruf
Maruf
 
Nigerian soldiers have reportedly stormed the home of an Oyo based-man, Alhaji Azeez Maruf and kidnapped him, this is according to his family members.
 
SaharaReporters gathered that Maruf was forcefully taken away from his residence at Alhaja Sara Street, Cele area, Oyo town on Thursday, November 18, 2021 by the soldiers led by one Major Idris Moses.
 
Family members accused Major Moses of denying them access to Maruf, who they claimed has different health challenges due to his age.
 
They added that they were yet to see or talk to him since he was abducted as the soldiers refused to reveal where he was being held hostage.
 
The family also said he was tortured by the military officers while being taken away while the reasons for his arrest were not disclosed to them.
 
“It's a sad day to see the Nigerian army personnel flood our environ at our residence on Alhaja Sara Street, Cele area, Oyo, on Thursday, November 18 2021 around 7:50am in the morning,” his son said.
 
“The whole drama started when an unknown man from nowhere stood at the back of my dad’s car parked outside the house. He noticed that one man was standing behind his car and went out to check for security purpose. When he got out, he noticed they were now two and then had to challenge them to know what they were looking for.
 
“After he asked them who and what they were looking for, the duo replied by trying to force him in with his towel being wrapped on his body, he told them he would be going with them, but that they should allow him to change his towel to normal cloth wherein his relatives who were around already intervened to allow him change his cloth. So those men said my dad’s attention was needed for interrogation.
 
“Furthermore, in a twinkle of an eye, one of them made a signal and we noticed many buses full of army operatives. We pleaded with them to allow one of his relatives to follow them to at least know his whereabouts of which they agreed.
 
“Upon the agreement, he was taken to Operation Burst Office in Oyo town, where they signed out and told me I could not go with them to the next location they were taking him to. Without much hesitation, I quickly put a call through to my brother which in turn reached out to some of his friends.
 
“They all met us at the scene.
 It should be stated that before taking him to an unknown location, he was handcuffed, blindfolded and put inside the Golf car before they zoomed off with the operation Burst Oyo personnel escorting them.
 
“To my surprise, he was brought home that day around 10:45pm asking him to go and bring his smartphone which was handed over to those security personnel. Ever since that day we have neither been able to see him nor talk to the breadwinner of our family.
 
“They have denied him access to his medication. Let it be on record that the act by the Nigerian Army in connivance with the Operation Burst in Oyo Zone isn't in any way different from abduction. It was a broad day kidnapping by men in uniform.
 
“The soldiers should understand that even if they are men in uniform, the process, method and mode of operations by the Nigeria Army is unconstitutional and inhumane. How an earth will a Nigerian citizen be bundled up from his house without any clear-cut location? How will a man who committed no offence be taken away with his face being blindfolded for more than 4 days? What crime has he committed to that level that what the Nigeria Army felt they can do is to molest a harmless civilian? My dad is a responsible person and he is a peace lover, the Nigerian army should follow all lawful means. Should anything happen to him the Nigerian army should be hold responsible.”

A man, Brian Laundrie has taken his own life after his fiancee was murdered in the United States.
 
His fiancee, US blogger/youtuber Gabby Petito was murdered sparking a nationwide media attention.
 
However, Brian Laundrie who couldn't take the news of her death, took his own life.
 
The revelation was made by his family's lawyer in a statement.
 
The case of Petito, 22, and her fiance Laundrie, 23, sparked nationwide media attention.
 
The couple had been vlogging their summer road trip in a van through national parks in the US on social media.
 
But Petito's parents reported her missing on 11 September after they had been unable to contact her for a fortnight. Her body was eventually discovered in Wyoming, where the couple had been travelling, on 19 September. A coroner later found that she had been strangled.
 
Police later found out that Laundrie had returned to Florida without Ms Petito on 1 September. Her family repeatedly appealed for her fiancé and his family to co-operate with investigators, but he then went missing himself.
 
His parents told police they last saw him on 13 September - when he went hiking alone and never returned.
 
His body was discovered in a Florida park on 20 October after a month long police search. His body was identified using dental records.
 
His family has now released a statement through their lawyer revealing his cause of death.
 
"Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been informed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound... and the manner of death was suicide," the family's lawyer said.
 
"Chris and Roberta are still mourning the loss of their son and are hopeful that these findings bring closure to both families," Steven Bertolino told ABC Action News

According to a report by SaharaReporters, the Lagos State Judicial Panel on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and Other Matters has indicted 58 policemen for killing and brutalising unarmed Nigerians including #EndSARS protesters in the state.

Over the past year, the panel has heard petitions on police brutality and has also investigated the contentious Lekki tollgate incident.

In its report submitted last Monday, the Justice Doris Okuwobi-led panel accused police officers deployed to the tollgate of shooting, assaulting and battering unarmed protesters.

The panel said the attack on protesters resulted in injuries and deaths.

It also said the police officers tried to cover up their actions by picking up bullets.

“The panel found that the Nigerian Police Force deployed its officers to the Lekki tollgate on the night of the 20th October, 2020 and between that night and the morning of the 21st of October, 2020, its officer shot at, assaulted and battered unarmed protesters, which led to injuries and deaths,” the report reads.

“The police officers also tried to cover up their actions by picking up bullets.”

It recommended that some policemen should be prosecuted for arbitrary and indiscriminate shooting and killing of protesters.

Although the panel treated several allegations of police brutality, the officers were found culpable in 42 different cases, FIJ reports.

CSP Ayodele P. O. Arugbo, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Olosan Police Station in Mushin, was named three times by petitioners. After finding him guilty of the allegations, the panel recommended that the officer, popularly known as ‘Gbakoje’, be prosecuted accordingly.

Among the 58 officers named by the panel, Sergeant Olowojoyin Rasheed was the only officer confirmed to have been dismissed, prosecuted and charged to court.

The list also includes names of officers indicted for assaulting innocent Nigerians as far back as 30 years ago.

The judicial panel was inaugurated on October 19, 2020, to review cases of police brutality and human rights violations.

On November 15, the panel submitted a 309-page report to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Governor of Lagos State, admitting that soldiers shot live ammunition at armless #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Tollgate.
