LP Campaign Accuses ‘Powers That Be’ Of Grounding Plane Ahead Oyo Rally

Critics and observers claim the Labour Party does not have the structure to win the presidency.


The Labour Party (LP) Campaign has accused “powers that be” of grounding an “obi-dient” plane ahead of the party’s presidential rally in Ibadan, Oyo State.

This was contained in a short statement by the Head of Media, Obi-Datti Campaign, Diran Onifade. He, however, told supporters of the party to ignore “mischievous rumours” claiming that the plane was impounded.

“The Obi-dient plane was grounded today by the powers that be ‘for regulatory reasons’ only. Please ignore any mischievous rumour. Our massive rally in Ibadan is going on as planned,” he said on Wednesday.

The party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and his entourage were heading to the Oyo State capital from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja when the incident happened.

Obi, one of the leading contenders for next year’s election, enjoys support from many young Nigerians and is also making the buzz on social media.

While observers say his party has no structure to challenge the main political parties in the country – the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress (APC) – the former Anambra State Governor maintains that millions of poor and dissatisfied Nigerians are his support base.

Hope appears bleak for Yoruba self-determination activist, Sunday Adeyemo as the Appeal Court on Tuesday set aside N20 billion damages awarded to him last year after the violent invasion of his residence in Ibadan.

Adeyemo had gone to court challenging the action which led to the death of some of his aides.

In its sitting, the Court of Appeal sitting in Ibadan nullified the judgement of an Oyo State High Court which awarded N20 billion damages to the Yoruba self-determination activist, popularly known as Igboho.

Delivering the judgement in an appeal filed by the Attorney General of the Federation, State Security Service and Director, State Security Service in Oyo State, Justice Muslim Hassan held that Justice Ladiran Akintola, who delivered the judgement on September 17, 2021, acted on the wrong principles of law in awarding the cost to Igboho.

He said that Justice Akintola can’t assess damages claimed by Igboho using his own conceived parameters.

Justice Hassan thereby set aside the earlier judgment which declared the attack on the house of Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo illegal.

The court also nullified the N20 billion exemplary and aggravated damages awarded against the Department of State Security (DSS) for the attack, describing it as outrageous.

Justice Hassan held that the Oyo High Court ignored the merit of the case while assuming jurisdiction, adding that the judge should not have awarded damages based on his personal parameters.

“Preliminary investigations revealed that the girl was in the company of her mother, one Afolabi Modupe ‘F’, and other siblings when the two suspects attempted seizing her from her mother’s grip.”

The suspects are in police custody but were first taken for medical attention, he said.

While investigations into the incident are ongoing, he quoted the state’s commissioner of police, Ngozi Onadeko, as appealing to residents of the southwest state against taking laws into their hands.

Olubadan Coronation: Why Ibadan Remains The City Of Many Firsts, Osinbajo Reveals

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo SAN along with Governor Seyi Makinde, Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Governor Of Ekiti State, Governor of Ogun State Prince Dapo Abiodun, Sultan of Sokoto, Alaafin of Oyo, Ooni of Ife, attends the coronation ceremony and presentation of Staff of Office to the 42nd Olubadan of Ibadanland HIM Oba Dr. Moshood Olalekan Ishola Balogun Alli Okunmade II.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, says the uniqueness of the city of Ibadan transcends the rich culture of the Yoruba people and the politics of the South-West region as it is renowned for its many firsts; in education, sports, broadcasting, and even the birthing of the Nigerian nation.

Prof. Osinbajo stated this in his remarks at the coronation of the new Olubadan of Ibadan, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Dr. Senator Mohood Olalekan Ishola Balogun, Ali-Iwo (Alli Okunmade II), in Ibadan on Friday.

Highlighting the uniqueness of the city and its impact on the lives and livelihood of the people, the Vice President said “Ibadan was and has always been a city on a hill, a place of refuge and a realm in which individuals could rise by the grace of their talents, on merit and their diligence.

“It embodies the values of openness, diversity, and high achievement. It is therefore not surprising that Ibadan is a city of many firsts.”

Continuing, Prof. Osinbajo noted that “it was in this city that the call for Nigeria’s independence from British rule first resounded. The people of Ibadan bore witness to the exploits of iconic nationalists and leaders such as Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, our country’s first President, and the sage Chief Obafemi Awolowo, who was Premier of the Western Region for a time that is widely regarded as the region’s golden age.

“Ibadan became the hub of politics in the then-nascent nation and the capital of the Western Region. It was and is still acknowledged as the political headquarters of the entire South-West Nigeria.”

In the field of broadcasting, sports, education, and infrastructure, the Vice President said “it is home to the first indigenous TV station in Africa. It is also the home of the Shooting Stars Sports Football Club (3SC) – the first Nigerian club to win an international trophy – the African Winners’ Cup in 1976.

“This is the home of the first university in Nigeria, –and for many years the iconic Cocoa House was the tallest building in Nigeria standing as a towering edifice dominating the city’s skyline – a powerful visual reminder that Ibadan inspires us to ceaselessly strive for greater heights in every endeavour.”

In the management of its traditional institution, Prof. Osinbajo noted that “Ibadan is unerringly unique. As we all know, whoever would become an Olubadan must climb 23 chieftaincy steps from either of two lines: the Civilian and the Military. But it is its predictability, and orderliness that rank it among the most peaceful and unique ascension protocols anywhere.”

The Vice President, who spoke after Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde presented the staff of office to the new Olubadan, urged the Oba to remain diligent in taking on the duties and responsibilities bestowed on him, noting that “it is a heavy obligation of history that the privilege of your ascension to the throne of your fathers now places upon your shoulders”.

While congratulating the new monarch on his coronation, Prof. Osinbajo assured the people of Ibadan that the Olubadan possesses all that will be required to discharge the duties of the throne, stating that “your shoulders are broad and sturdy as you come into this office better prepared than probably any monarch anywhere”.

His words: “Everything in your remarkable life and times, your abiding dedication and love for the people of Ibadan, your breadth of intellect, the openness of mind and largeness of heart has inexorably led to this auspicious day of your crowning as the Olubadan of Ibadan. And will serve you well on the throne.”

Those present at the event were notable traditional and political leaders from the South-West region and beyond, including former Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar; Governors of Ekiti, Kayode Fayemi; Ogun, Dapo Abiodun; Kano, Abdullahi Ganduje; some deputy governors and members of the Federal Executive Council.

Other dignitaries at the event included the Alaafin of Oyo, His Imperial Majesty, Lamidi Adeyemi III; the Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi; the Sultan of Sokoto, His Emminence, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar; the Emir of Kano, HRH, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero; the Etsu Nupe, HRH, Alhaji (Dr.) Yahaya Abubakar, among others.

Two Policemen Shot Dead As Robbers Attack Bullion Van In Ibadan


Two policemen have been shot dead as armed robbers attacked a bullion van at the Iwo Road area of Ibadan, Oyo State.

The attack which happened on Thursday, left people scampering for safety as the exchange of gunshots between the robbers and security agents attached to the bullion van lasted for some minutes. Commuters were forced to abandon their cars in the middle of the road as security operatives struggled to repel the attack.

The Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Ngozi Onadeko, who conducted an on-the-spot assessment of the scene of the crime, confirmed that two policemen were killed. She, however, said that one of the robbers was also shot dead during the attack but the robbers made away with his body.

While describing the attack as a coordinated one, Onadeko said all exit points in Ibadan have been placed on red alert. According to her, the move is to prevent the fleeing suspects from escaping.

“It is a coordinated attack which we are still trying to find out what happened because they trailed the bullion van from where it went to get money to dispense it to the place,” the CP said.

“I can’t definitely say now what actually went wrong, we are trying our possible best to get them. Two of my men were shot in the leg, let us investigate and we will be able to give you more details.”

The police commissioner stated further that Ibadan is under lockdown with the State Police Command working closely with other security agencies in tracking down the fleeing robbers.

Meanwhile, a series of amateur videos show some commuters with gunshot wounds and two policemen lying motionless after the gun duel with the robbers.

It is unclear how much money the robbers made away with but police authorities say measures are in place to prevent escape for the suspects as investigations begin to unravel those behind this audacious attack.

Tinubu Pays Condolence Visit To Makinde Over Demise Of Olubadan, Soun And Akala


Former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Saturday, paid a condolence visit to the Governor of Oyo State, ‘Seyi Makinde, over the demise of two prominent traditional rulers and a former governor of Oyo State, Otunba Adebayo Alao- Akala.

While speaking at the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, Tinubu said that the departed traditional rulers – the Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Jimoh Oyewumi Ajagungbade III, and the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji, Aje Ogunguniso 1 – as well as former Governor Alao-Akala, would be greatly missed.

Makinde said Tinubu stood for politics without bitterness.


A statement by Mr. Taiwo Adisa, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde, quoted Tinubu as saying that the reign of the two prominent traditional rulers was peaceful, adding that the duo contributed to the peaceful atmosphere of the state.

The statement also quoted Tinubu as adding that the late Governor Alao-Akala equally contributed immensely to the political development and the love radiating within the political arena in the state.

The former Lagos governor also commended Governor Makinde for “demonstrating good character” as far as governance is concerned in the state.

He said: “I want to thank you, the governor. It was only last night that I thought of my coming here and we are here today. Having lost a former governor of this state, the Olubadan of Ibadanland and Soun of Ogbomoso, it is just for us to go back to the sense of value of people and their lives.

“With this situation, we share in your loss. You, as the governor on the saddle of power, take responsibility for the situation here. I want to say that we thank God Ibadan has been peaceful and not a den of violence but peaceful.

“Every other thing that has happened has taught us in the book of religion that we are just passing through and we will leave one day. But no matter how long, it is difficult to absorb the loss easily.

“Thank you for being accommodating. We gave you a short hour notice and you responded.

“That is a demonstration of a good character, which is rare. People get, sometimes, intoxicated with power and the arrogance of office can be overwhelming, but not with you. Thank you for receiving us so quickly.”

Tinubu is full of praises for Makinde.


In his remarks, Governor ‘Seyi Makinde, said that the former governor of Lagos State stood for politics without bitterness.

According to him, politicians, may fight, struggle for political positions, but power can only come from God and He gives it to whomever he likes.

Makinde equally appreciated the former governor of Lagos State, wishing him well in his political endeavour.

He said: “I want to welcome you to Oyo State. We are really grateful for this visit. This is the year political parties will elect their candidates towards the election that is coming next year. So, what this had demonstrated to us is, you stood for politics without bitterness.

“During this political season, you may have to question yourself on why you need to come to the Government House because people might have another interpretation to it. But you sent a message across to me and I was delighted to host you in Ibadan.

“We lost two traditional rulers almost in quick succession. First, it was Soun of Ogbomoso land, and we were planning for the burial when the Olubadan of Ibadanland also joined his ancestors. We were still in the middle of that when former Governor Akala also died. I can see that in Oyo State, we try to take politics out of what we call ‘omoluabi’.

“We may fight, struggle for political positions but we know power can only come from God and He gives it to whomever He will like to give it to at whatever time.

“We really thank you for this visit and want to let you know that we have taken proper notice that you have risen above politics and all that is going around here to come and share with us at this moment that we are grieving. We say thank you.

“Let me also use this opportunity to wish you well in your political quest to govern this nation. We want the best for this country and only the best is good enough at this particular time.”

Senator Tinubu’s visit to the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, came after he had paid condolence visits to the palaces of the Soun of Ogbomoso land, Olubadan of Ibadanland, and residence of the late Governor Alao-Akala, where he sympathised with the respective families.

The Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji, has died.

Oba Adetunji was crowned the 41st Olubadan of Ibadan following his coronation on March 4, 2016.

Prior to his coronation as the Olubadan of Ibadan, he was the Balogun of Ibadan land.

His death has attracted tributes from various political and traditional leaders across the country, including President Muhammadu Buhari and some state governors.

President Buhari, in a statement on Sunday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, extended heartfelt condolences to the government and people of Oyo State, the royal family, the Olubadan-in-council, and the people of Ibadan on the passing of the monarch.

He affirmed that the late Olubadan was a visionary and compassionate leader who used the spheres of his influence as a respected traditional ruler, and a lover of the creative industry to advance the progress of his people by encouraging and motivating them to give their best in their vocation and to the nation.

“While his demise understandably leaves a huge void to fill, the President urges the people of Ibadan and Nigerians from different walks of life to honour the eternal memory of the deceased by imbibing the virtues he cherished so much: generosity, peace, tolerance, and devotion to unity,” the statement said.

“As the funeral rites of the 41st Olubadan of Ibadanland get underway in Ibadan, the President trusts that the process of selecting his successor will be guided by wisdom, understanding, and good judgment that exemplified the life he lived.

“President Buhari prays God to grant the soul of Oba Adetunji eternal rest and comfort the family, friends, associates, and subjects he left behind.”
