Following the looting and devastating destruction of private and common properties by hoodlums in the name of poverty and hunger, many wonder if the perpetrators are infact of Yoruba decent and if they are, of what extent and how err they brought up, as tribe, culture and tradition were put as side to achieve the extent of looting they set their minds to.
one of the sufferers of the looting era was the one end only Oba of Lagos whose throne was desecrated by the people in his neighbourhood. The royal head is now in search of his staff along side other things as he had his mind blown by the extent of guys exhibited by the looters.
Thugs who made away with the Oba of Lagos’ Staff of Office on Wednesday, October 21 have been warned by the Akinshemoyin Ruling house of Lagos Island to return it or face the consequences thereafter.
In a recently released statement jointly signed by Prince Salami-Abisako and Prince Adeyemi Sarumi, the Akinshemoyin Ruling house of Lagos vehemently condemned the disruption of the peaceful #EndSARS protest by hoodlums.
According to them, the actions by the thugs in causing unrest such as the carting away of Oba is an abomination and sacrilegious.
Their statement read,
“Though we are in total support of the peaceful protest of the Nigerian youths tagged: #EndSARS #EndPoliceBrutality, we, Lagosians condemn with all sense of responsibility the gruesome murder of Nigerians, the hijack of the peaceful protest by hoodlums, destruction of public infrastructural facilities and property across the nation.
We also condemn the looting of our trad itional and ancestral heritage as it relates to the Oba of Lagos Palace; especially the carting away of the staff of office. We will not allow miscreants to destroy our Lagos ‘Onilu Onije Otu’.
“The acts of these elements are sacrilegious, taboo and abomination to the Yoruba race. These nefarious misfits’ conducts could lead to mayhem in the land if not timely checked and tranquility restored.
“We hereby call on the paramount Apena of Oshugbo, Opa, Akala and other traditional heads and custodians to immediately secure the Oba’s palace from further attack(s) in order to save the face of our traditional stool.
“The royal house, however, called for the return of the stolen staff of authority to be deposited at the Apena of Lagos within 24 hours or the deviants will face the consequences of their action. A word is enough for the wise.”

That is a big win for the female football team of Brazil. Clearly there was a respectable level of push for this milestone to be achieved and the outcome I just say, is worth every one of those pushes. It is safe to safe a big congratulations to Women in Brazil and those who fought for this win. Hopefully other countries will follow in this footstep for a better decision on fairness to humans of all genders.
Just like colleagues such as 50 year old Melissa McCarthy known to grab roles for their appearance, some health tips were adopted and life plan changed, 40 year old Rebel is adopting/choosing the health and wellness life style as well. Good choice Rebel.
