From Dimeji Kayode-Adedeji, Abeokuta

Speaker of Ogun state House of Assembly, Hon Suraj Adekunbi, on Thursday evening, got a bitter pill as suspected armed robbers snatched his car at gunpoint in a major street of Abeokuta, the state capital, before they dropped him off at the outskirts of the town.
Our reporter reliably gathered that, the lawmaker was behind the wheel in his official Toyota Avensis car, alongside one of his security aides when the armed robbers at about 7.00pm accosted him along Abiola Way.
The robbers in a twinkle ordered the Speaker to disembark and get into the back seat of the car with his aide before driving them out from the town; they subsequently released them at Kobape village, which is about 20 minutes’ drive to the state capital.
When contacted on phone, the special assistant to the Speaker, Waheed Akinola, denied knowledge of the robbery incident, saying “I don’t think that thing happened.”
Similarly, the State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, when contacted on phone, said the police was not aware of the robbery.
In another development, fire incident midnight of yesterday destroyed the ground floor reception hall of the Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, located in Ake area of Abeokuta.
The fire was said to have been caused by power surge between 1.30am and 2.00am, however, the quick intervention of residents within the palace according to an eyewitness, prevented the spread of the fire to other apartments.

This is the dividend of nigeria demonstrationofcraze

This are the dividend of pdp 13 years rule nationally.Kidnapping,oil theft and massive bunkering,bare face corruption,dare devil arm robbery,ineptitude judiciary that discharged and aquited a citizen on it own shore, for the same citizen to plead guilty on the same count charges abroad.Do or die election that is electing a certify thief as governor and alleged rogues and robberies in the national assembly,education decay due to political patronage appointment.Economic growth without creating jobs,the value of human existence is cheaper than a loave of bread,massive insecurity of lifes and properties.Leaders of this party nationally should take a deep breathe and ask themselves why did they refused to grab opportunity to change nigeria for good after 13yrs.Repentance and restitution is natural,there is no shame in doing this,three more yrs is still ahead to make an amend, failure to repent and do restitutions may lead to choas and unknown.No condition is permanent.
