22-year-old Okada rider commits suicide in Oyo


22-year-old Okada rider commits suicide in Oyo

A 22-year-old man simply identified as Sarafa Ayuba, has committed suicide beside his uncle’s house at Amuloko area of Ona Ara Local Government part of Oyo State on Friday, September 25.


An uncle of the deceased, Kazeem Tijani, recounted how Ayuba was declared missing and his body was recovered.


“Ayuba got the motorcycle on hire purchase basis and he was paying the instalments adequately. He was my brother’s son.

He was not indebted to anyone and he was not starving at all. He was not married. He has been living with me for the past two to three years. He was working with me before he got Okada.” he said



Mr. Oluwatosin James, who is the Chairman of the Association of Commercial Bike Riders in Amuloko area, said they are shocked that Ayuba could take his own life.


“The news of Ayuba’s death came to us as a rude shock. It is this morning that we heard of the news at the Park. He was very reticent and would not fight anybody.

Once he did his okada business in the morning, he would go and park and go to his uncle’s shop to assist him. Out of N390,000 that he got the Okada on instalment basis, Ayuba has almost paid up the money, because the money remains just N77,000 to balance the payment.

There was no issue of threat to him from the person who gave him the okada. In fact, the person is like a brother to him. So, we are confused over this sad incident” James said

"Father God I pray for a spirit of boldness and confidence in my daughter Noella. That she would recognize who she is in Christ, knowing that she is a daughter of the most high; created marvelously, and uniquely, for Your glory. And that she would see herself beautiful just the way You made her, after Your image

Father I pray that she would be kind, and her words would be seasoned with love. That she would speak with a meek and quiet spirit; not being vain glorious. I bind the spirit of comparison with her beauty or talents to others.

I pray Father God that you would protect her; spirit, soul and body; giving her the strength to maintain her purity. That her mind would be focused on you and your word, as she pursues her teenage and young adult years. Surround her Lord with good company; equally yoked friends, who will encourage her when she need to be reminded of your love for her.

I ask Father God that you would continue to give me the wisdom to love, encourage, and be an example of the godly woman you desire her to be and a leader amongst her peers.

I ask all these things in Jesus name, AMEN.
May God Continue to Bless her Mother @layaltinubu (My greatest blessing)

Seyi Tinubu pens heartfelt


Layal, on her part, posted a photo of their daughter and simply captioned it thus:


"My perfect princess. You will always be a light in the lives of those around you!"

Man kills and buries his 70-year-old father inside a shallow grave in Anambra (photos)


Man kills and buries his 70-year-old father inside a shallow grave in Anambra (photos)

A 26-year-old man, Chisom Ogum, has been arrested by men of the Anambra state police command for allegedly killing his biological father, Christopher Ogum, 70, and burying him in a shallow grave in Umuomaku community in Orumba South local government area of the state today September 26.


According to reports, Chisom reportedly went berserk, attacked, and killed his father with a shovel and then buried him in a shallow grave. The suspect attempted to escape before he was apprehended and beaten to stupor by an angry mob who equally forced him to exhume the corpse of his father from where he buried it.


Confirming the incident to newsmen, the spokesperson of the state police command, Haruna Mohammed, said police detectives visited the scene of the crime, photographed the victim and took the corpse to the mortuary for autopsy after it was certified dead by a medical doctor at Umunze general hospital.


Haruna said the offensive weapon used in perpetrating the offence was also recovered as an exhibit.


He added that the state Commissioner of Police CP John B.Abang has ordered for the case to be transferred to the State CID Awka for discreet investigation.


Those refering to me as 'Supreme Court Governor' are ignorant- Governor Hope Uzodinma


Those refering to me as

Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state has described Nigerians referring to him as a 'Supreme Court governor' as ignorant.


The governor said this when he appeared on Channels TV on Friday, September 25.


When he was asked how he feels when people call him a Supreme Court governor, Uzodinma said

“It is the height of ignorance because they don’t know what they are saying. There is a reason for the Supreme Court. In the doctrine and principle of democracy, the law expected that there would be grievances and malpractices in the electoral process.

“When this happens, the only legitimate right you have is to seek redress at the court. And of course, the court determines. Remember that this is not the first time, so many elections had held where the candidates went to court and they got justice. So, why will mine be different?

“Human beings voted and the votes were not counted. I went to the Supreme Court and INEC was unable to explain why they did not enter the result. It was a simple judgment. The Supreme Court said INEC was wrong.”


Recall that on January 14, 2020, the Supreme court removed Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party as governor of the state on grounds that he did not score the lawful majority votes in the Imo governorship race. The court said it arrived at that decision after adding votes scored by Uzodinma in 388 polling units, which showed that he won the race.


It subsequently declared Uzodinma the winner of the election and ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to give him a Certificate of Return as elected Imo governor.


Ihedioha, however, returned to the Supreme Court with a view to seeking a review of the judgement that removed him from office but failed.

"Regrettably, resulting from the encounter with the bandits, one gallant officer and two soldiers paid the supreme sacrifice while two other soldiers were wounded in action and are currently receiving medical treatment in a military medical facility and responding positively," said Onyeuko.

“The fearless troops have continued to pursue the bandits into the forest and dominating the general areas with aggressive fighting patrols to deny them any respite." he added.


Meanwhile, the burial activities of Colonel Manu will hold today at army HQ, Zaria, Kaduna state.
