A 400-level student of the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye, has been arrested for attempting to kill a policeman in Ogun State.

The spokesman of the Ogun State Police Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the arrest in a statement issued on Thursday in Abeokuta, saying that the victim was on duty along the Ijebu Ode-Ibadan Road on June 1.

The suspect, Oyeyemi said, “was seen driving a fully artificial tinted Toyota Camry car with registration number LND 929 GX loaded with some house properties towards Ibadan Oyo state and was flagged down for checking since the occupants are not visible from outside”.

“Instead of the driver to stop, he accelerated and intentionally knocked down one Inspector Idowu Moses attached to PMF 71 Awa Ijebu, consequent upon which the said inspector sustained a serious bodily injury and passed out momentarily,” the statement added.

“He was taken to the hospital for treatment while others started tracing the suspect towards Ibadan Road. He was eventually arrested at a village close to Ibadan and brought down to Ijebu Ode Area Command,” Oyeyemi stated.

In his reaction to the incident, the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, ordered that the suspect be charged to court as soon as possible.

The commissioner also warned that he will not tolerate any attack on police operatives on duty, admonishing members of the public to desist from such criminal acts.

Published

on

Olagunju Olatunji, an investigating police officer, and Sunday Akaju, an officer attached to the Ajah police division in Lagos state, have testified in the trial of Drambi Vandi.

Olatunji and Akaju appeared before Ibironke Harrison, the presiding judge of a Lagos high court, on Thursday.

Raheem, a lawyer, was shot dead on December 25, 2022 in an incident involving Vandi.

Testifying before the court, Olatunji said he was the investigating police officer (IPO) in charge of Vandi’s case, adding that he was at Ajiwe police station when the deceased’s sister came to report the incident.

“In the course of my investigation, the statement of the suspect was taken with caution while the statement of the complainant was taken voluntarily,” he said.

“The case was later transferred to the SCID in Yaba for further discreet investigation.

“Before I transferred the case, what I found out during my investigation was that the defendant fired the gun and at the same time, his ammunition was not complete.

“As at the time of his arrest, I saw him with a civilian top on police trousers.”

During cross-examination, Adetokunbo asked Olatunji why he concluded that it was the defendant who fired the bullet that killed Raheem.

“There are three instances. When the gun was shot, the deceased’s sister and husband came down and held the cop and took him to Budo Hospital,” Olatunji responded.

“The second instance is that two out of the three officers on patrol duty held guns. When they brought their guns to the station, only SUPOL Vandi’s gun had a shortage of two bullets while the other one was complete.

“The third is that after the incident, the police officer hid under a staircase and he changed his uniform to mutfi with a gun at hand.”

The defendant’s counsel asked the witness whether it is out of place for a police officer to wear mufti.

“It is not part of the ethics of the job,” the police inspector responded.

“Is that the first time that you will see a policeman wear mufti and carry a gun?” the counsel asked.

Toyin Abraham takes Legal action against Revolution plus property scam

Published

on

Actress Toyin Abraham has now taken legal actions against Revolution Plus property by having her lawyers sent them an official statement confirming her dissociation from the brand.

Taking to her Instagram page moments ago to share the legal documents, Toyin Abraham wrote:

PUBLIC DISCLAIMER

DISASSOCIATION FROM REVOLUTIONPLUS PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT COMPANY LIMITED

We are Solicitors to Mrs. Olutoyin Abosede Ajeyemi Abraham, (hereinafter referred to ‘our Client’) and on whose instruction we write the above-captioned letter.

Our Client wishes to disassociate herself from the brand, Revolutionplus (hereinafter referred to ‘the company). This disclaimer is premised on the fact that our client’s contract with the Company as a Brand Ambassador has been effectively terminated and the compelling need to disassociate herself from the image of the Brand.

Despite the above promises, I was still receiving various threats messages, curses, complaints and pleas from investors claiming they had not been allocated any land or refunded their monies. Some of them further claimed that because I represented the Company as a brand ambassador, I reposed their confidence in the
Company to invest their monies. I became sad, worried, and disturbed and decided to stop my social media publications and advertisement of the Company’s products.

When the pressure and harassment became embarrassingly unbearable both online on all my social media platforms and offline, and with my integrity at stake, I sent a mail to the Company on the 15th June 2022 notifying them of my intent to terminate my contract as a Brand Ambassador. The Company reached out to me on the 16th of June 2022, we had a meeting and they promised to promptly and effectively address the allegations. Upon the premise of the promises made, I sent another mail on the 17th June 2022 cancelling my notice of intent to terminate my contract as a brand ambassador.

In view of the above termination which I accept in good faith and totality, and considering the recent similar messages I have received from aggrieved customers from the brand, I hereby disassociate myself from the brand and advise that all persons dealing with the brand conduct their respective due diligence’.

It was in the wake of my decision to reduce the brand’s visibility and advertisement on my social media platforms, especially because my integrity as a person is being questioned daily, that I received a ‘Notice of Termination of Brand Ambassadorship’ letter on the 22nd December 2022 by the Company’s legal team, which effectively terminated my contract with them on grounds of reduced affection and reluctant approach towards publicly identifying with the brand.

While performing my duties as contained in the contract, I started receiving a lot of allegations and complaints from investors who claimed the Company has not allocated lands nor refunded them their monies. Some of these investors were in my DM (Direct Message) demanding for refund of their monies or allocation of the lands they paid for.

Please find below the official statement from our Client:

‘After carefully conducting my due diligence and being personally convinced about the genuineness of the Company, I proceeded to sign a contractual agreement in July 2020, thereby becoming a brand ambassador to market the property products of the Company, Revolutionplus. This duty I carried out with utmost loyalty, diligence, integrity and excellence, which are the core values I stand for.
