In Ogun: Man Kidnaps Military Officer, Assumes His Identity After Stealing His Uniform, Phones, Others



A man has been arrested by the police command in Ogun State for kidnapping a military officer and stealing his uniform, Automated Teller Machine (ATM) cards and other belongings. 


According to the police, the suspect and his colleagues reportedly kidnapped a W/O 2 military officer around 11:30 pm on Friday and took him to their hideout in Alagbado, Lagos State, where they stripped him of his uniform, and stole his identity card, mobile phones and and three Automated Teller Machine (ATM) cards.


The suspect was arrested at Odo Pako Ota, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government area of Ogun State. 

The suspect, Waliu Oloyede, was arrested following a distress call received by the Divisional Police Officer of Sango Ota Divisional Headquarters, CSP Godwin Idehai, that local vigilantes were having problems with an army officer in the area.

After receiving the report, the DPO was said to have led his team to the scene where the suspect, who dressed in full military camouflage with the rank of W/02, was seen.


The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspect, who paraded himself in military uniform “could not give satisfactory account of himself and was apprehended and brought to the station.”


Oyeyemi stated that the suspect, who was said to have attempted to snatch a dane gun from a vigilante, was unable to give account of how he got the military uniform, or address of the unit where he is serving, hence he was detained for impersonation.


“While in detention, police got information that the suspect and others at large abducted a W/O2 military officer at about 11:30 pm of 16th July 2021 and took him to their hideout in Alagbado, Lagos State, where he was stripped of his uniform, they collected his identity card, his three ATM cards and phone before the victim escaped from them,” Oyeyemi told DAILY POST on Monday.


Oyeyemi said, “It was the victim’s uniform the suspect put on to commit another crime before he was arrested.”  Dailypost

Sudan: Military arrests 3 opposition figures


Sudan’s security forces have reportedly arrested three prominent opposition figures after they met the Ethiopian prime minister who was in Khartoum to try to restart peace talks.

Opposition politician Mohamed Esmat was arrested on Friday soon after his meeting with PM Abiy Ahmed, aides said.
Ismail Jalab, a leader of the rebel SPLM-N group, and his spokesman Mubarak Ardol were detained early on Saturday.

It comes days after a crackdown on pro-democracy protesters left dozens dead.
Protest leaders have rejected an offer of talks from the Transitional Military Council (TMC), saying it cannot be trusted after the bloodshed.
Sudan has been controlled by the TMC since protests led to the ousting of long-time President Omar al-Bashir in April.



The military promised a transition to civilian rule but protesters had maintained a sit-in in Khartoum until security forces swept in on Monday and opened fire.

“A group of armed men came in vehicles at 03:00 (01:00 GMT) and took away Ismail Jalab… without giving any reason,” aide Rashid Anwar told AFP, adding that SPLM-N (Sudan People’s Liberation Movement North) spokesman Mubarak Ardol was also taken.

“We don’t know where they are being held,” he added.
The whereabouts of Mohamed Esmat are also not clear.
On Wednesday, the SPLM-N said its deputy head, Yasir Arman, was arrested at his house in Khartoum. He had returned from exile following the downfall of Mr Bashir.

Mr Esmat and Mr Jalab are both leading members of the Alliance for Freedom and Change, an umbrella organisation of opposition figures, protest leaders and rebel groups.
“This amounts to a practical response from the military council that effectively rejects the Ethiopian prime minister’s mediation effort,” Khalid Omar Yousef, an opposition alliance leader, told Reuters after Mr Esmat’s arrest.



The TMC has not yet commented on the arrests.
BBC World Service Africa editor Mary Harper says the latest move suggests that the mediation efforts by Abiy Ahmed have indeed not been taken seriously by the military.
The TMC seems emboldened by the political and financial support it has received from Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Egypt, none of which are keen on fully fledged democracy, she adds. (NAN)

News : Nigerians are living in poverty, corruption and inequality, adding that governors who hitherto had no class had created one for themselves.

Nigerians are living in poverty, corruption and inequality, adding that governors who hitherto had no class had created one for themselves.

“Even military governors were more liberal than the governors you have today who only think about themselves and not the people. If we keep silent, a revolution is coming, if we fail to take quality decisions, our children will not forgive us. I don’t care who becomes the president as long as he is competent.”
