Court orders release of detained OPC members after three months

Published

on

The Chief Magistrate Court 2, Iyaganku, Ibadan, in the Oyo State capital, has ordered the release of three members of the Oodua Peoples Congress, three months after their detention by the Oyo State Police Command.

The OPC members – Awodele Adedigba, Dauda Kazeem and Hassan Ramon – had been detained mid-March 2021 after they arrested a suspected criminal reportedly from the Fulani ethnic stock, Iskilu Wakili.

Wakili had been accused of terrorising Igangan and other villages in the Ibarapa area of Oyo State.

The OPC had handed over Wakili to the Oyo State Police Command but the police subsequently detained three OPC members for allegedly burning down Wakili’s house and killing an unknown woman in the process.

However, the OPC and one of its leaders, Gani Adams, had said the murder and arson allegations were false, adding that it immediately handed over Wakili and three of his accomplices to the police in Igboora after their arrest.

The three detainees on Tuesday appeared before the magistrates’ court, presided over by A.O. Amzat, and were discharged and acquitted after the state’s Directorate of Public Prosecutions failed to prove to the court that the OPC men were guilty as charged.

Counsel for the defendants, Akwarandu Adetoun, told The PUNCH that the magistrate struck out the case and ordered the release of the detainees.

The OPC Coordinator in Oyo State, Rotimi Olumo, also confirmed the release of his men in a chat with The PUNCH on Tuesday.

Before Wakili’s arrest, farmers and residents of Igangan, Ayete, Kajola and neighbouring villages in Ibarapaland lived in perpetual fear of Wakili who was accused of displacing them from their farms, kidnapping their rich men and raping their women.

Igangan has been in the eye of the storm of late as marauding hoodlums carry out successive attacks on the rustic agrarian village, creating palpable panic and tension in residents of the area.

Earlier in June, no fewer than 17 persons were reportedly shot dead when hoodlums invaded the town on motorcycles around 11pm and started killing and destroying property, which continued until around 3am the next day.

Osinbajo spoke at the maiden edition of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Progressives Youth Conference in Abuja.

He said: “In the area of disruption and disruptive innovation, the principle that we are stronger together than in little part is a sound principle and it’s my respectful view that those who advocate the breaking up of the country are terribly wrong,” Osinbajo told a crowd of youths and party chieftains at the International Conference Centre, Abuja,”

“Our size is crucial for geopolitical and economic relevance. Our people will be better served by a large populous and diverse country.

“As with all big and diverse countries, our business is to make this union work; it’s to give everybody a sense of belonging.

“All of those waiting on the sidelines, hoping that this big country called Nigeria will break up into bits so that they can pick up the pieces, will be very sorely disappointed and I’m very sure that those of you who are seated here today will prevent that from happening.”

May God forgive those spreading rumours that I’m dead- Abiara

Published

on

The founder of the Christ Apostolic Church of Christ, Agbala Itura worldwide, Prophet Samuel Abiara, has debunked news of his purported death.

Abiara, who spoke with The PUNCH on the telephone on Tuesday, however, prayed that God forgive those behind the rumour.

“Nothing happened to me. At least you know I am alive since you’re speaking to me. People are just talking nonsense. I pray God forgives them.”

In a separate statement, the cleric said it was unfortunate that the fake news emanated from a journalist.

“This is a false story and it is shocking that a journalist can publish a lie without proper vetting of the information.  A journalist whose job is to write true stories should not engage in this kind of false information.

“This caused a lot of consternation all over the world.  Fake news is not the way to gain readership or follower-ship.  We hereby demand a retraction or apology from the publication posted on the same blog within 24 hours to avoid any other legal action,” Abiara said.
