Oba Saheed Elegushi, Akinsiku Settle Rift… Rock Olofa’s Father’s Burial

The wide chasm between two royal darlings of high society, Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi and Oba Dosunmu, the Akinsiku of Lagos, has been bridged and the lifelong friends can once more revel in each other’s company like in the good old days of yore.

Before they were torn apart by the scissoring scythe of manipulative hearsay, the flamboyant monarch and the regal courtier were joined at the hip. They gambolled hand in hand from country to country and event to event. They rocked and balled together round the Lagos social scene like two complementary colours mixed to form a majestic painting.

At the height of their camaraderie, King Gush, as the Elegushi of Ikateland is fondly called, and his childhood friend, Olalekan Dosunmu became the epitome of brotherhood that transcends blood. They were always there for each other. Anytime one is at a loss or needed something doing, the other would arrive on the scene with immediate alacrity, ready to lend the proverbial shoulder to lean on.

However, the beautiful garden of their friendship began to be overtaken by weeds as outsiders threw a spanner in the works. Inside sources reported that following the carefully laid plans of a mastermind – rumoured to be Oba Elegushi’s stunning queen, Olori Sekinat Aramide – the two bosom buddies began to view each other with suspicion.

The blooming mutual disdain and cold war burst open last May during the burial of Akinsiku’s father, Chief Adebola Alabi Dosunmu. On that occasion, Oba Elegushi was nowhere to be seen at an event where he would ordinarily have played a prominent role.

It was the same story few weeks later at the Haven Events Centre, Ikeja, venue of the wedding of Lagos big boy, Dapo Alli-Balogun’s son. Although both Oba Elegushi and Oba Dosunmu were in attendance, they treated each other like sworn enemies and wouldn’t even extend the common courtesy of a handshake or friendly smile.

However, the faceoff has finally ended as the duo has decided to bury the hatchet. The breach is fixed and the wounds are healed. The good days are back and better for Oba Elegushi and Akinsiku who were spotted together at the burial of the father of the Olofa of Ofa a few weeks ago. The two friends were unmistakable among the throng of pillars of high society as they danced and rocked together like former times.

Constituents Have Rights to Question, Correct Me, Says Senator Adeola

Ernest Chinwo in Port Harcourt

The 6 Division, Nigerian Army has described as lopsided the report of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the Governorship and State Assembly elections in Rivers State, accusing the commission of ignoring the input of the army.

The army also said it would review its participation in joint operations with police because of the failure of the police command to punish its personnel allegedly involved in the shooting of a soldier during t elections.

Deputy Director Army Public Relations, 6 Division Nigerian Army, Col. Aminu Iliyasu, in a statement issued yesterday night, said: “Headquarters 6 Division Nigerian Army (NA) have observed with dismay and sense of betrayal in the statement made by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) signed by its National Commissioner and Chairman Information and Voter Education Committee Festus Okoye Esq on 15 March 2019. The statement according to INEC was the findings of its Fact-Finding Committee that assessed the situation in Rivers State.

“It is however pertinent to note that, representatives of the 6 Division met with the Fact-Finding Committee on Tuesday 12 March 2019 at the INEC Headquarters in Port Harcourt and had honest discussions and made a written submission to aid the Committee in its task.

“Regrettably, none of the Division’s input form any of the findings of INEC as made public. This clearly indicates lack of trust by an institution that the NA sacrifices so much to assist in the course of performing their role.”

He said INEC failed to capture in its report that two soldiers were attacked by police personnel attached to Governor Nyesom Wike and suspected political thugs.

He said Wike stormed the collation center at Onions/Akpor at about 10.30pm on election day with his aides.

According to Iliyasu, “In the ensuing melee, Captain Adams Salami was shot at close range by the security aides of Governor Wike while Corporal Adeosun Adebayo was matcheted by Governor Wike’s thugs. Both victims are currently receiving treatment at University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH) Intensive Care Unit and Military Hospital Port Harcourt respectively with life threatening injuries.”

He said the army had been consulting with the police over the attack but expressed surprise that two press conferences scheduled by the police to address the issue were aborted at the last minute.

He stated: “To this end, – in the circumstance, – the 6 Division NA as a stakeholder in the 2019 General Elections takes exception to the lopsided and therefore unfair INEC report and it hereby strongly and totally rejected by the NA.

“The Division is equally disappointed with the attitude exhibited by the Nigerian Police in this regard and hereby request the police leadership to commence full scale investigation of those security aides to Governor Wike that attacked troops at the Obio/Akpor LG Headquarters Collation Center and shot at Capt AA Salami with a view to appropriately sanction those found responsible/culpable.

“Until that is done, Headquarters 6 Division NA will have to review all existing joint activities with the Rivers State Police Command.”

Keshington Reconciles Ladi Adebutu, Dapo Abiodun
Kessington Adebutu,

Like the proverbial elder in the market place, the Lotto magnate, Sir Kessington Adebutu, has reconciled the Ogun State Governor-elect, Prince Dapo Abiodun, and the governorship candidate recognised by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the recently conducted 2019 elections, Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu.

A statement by the Media Consultant, Ladi Adebutu Democratic Organisation, Mr. Afolabi Orekoya, said that the meeting, which held at the instance of Sir Adebutu at his residence in Lagos was called to ensure the two illustrious son of the soil embrace peace.

Sir Adebutu was said, during the meeting, to have called for peaceful and cordial relationship between Prince Abiodun and Hon. Adebutu, adding that much work needed to be done to uplift the people of the state.

Hon. Adebutu was quoted to have said that he was not interested in politics of acrimony like some desperate politicians and supposed leaders in the society which has led to the death of over 50 people in the last two weeks.

He said further that all he did during the last elections were tailored towards ensuring government worked for the people.

Hon. Adebutu also stated that it was time for government to consider the situation with Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Tai Solarin College of Education, Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH), Olokola Liquefied Natural Gas (OKLNG) and general compassion for government employees and the populace at large, rejuvenation of schools and hospitals while investing in human capital.

Both parties agreed to stay in their respective parties. Hon Adebutu remains in PDP while Abiodun continues with the All Progressives Congress (APC). This ultimately will serve Ijebu and Remo best.
