Ogun House Of Assembly Deputy Speaker Attacked

Hoodlums, suspected to be political thugs, on Sunday attacked Ogun State House of Assembly Deputy Speaker Kunle Oluomo.

They torched his constituency office in Ifo and set ablaze five vehicles on the premises.

The constituency office of the lawmaker representing Ifo/ Ewekoro Federal Constituency, Mr. Ibrahim Isiaka, was also burned down.

The hoodlums capitalised on the grand finale of the town’s annual Akoogun festival to attack Oluomo and destroy his properties and those of the federal legislator on the allegation that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its chieftains invited the police to the festival.


It was learnt that operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) had trailed one of the boys suspected to have taken part in the violent opposition to the APC in Ifo during the last general election to the venue of the festival for being in possession of a gun and arrested him with the gun.

But his colleagues allegedly accosted the police and prevented them from taking the boy away. They also attempted to retrieve the gun from the policemen.

The Nation gathered that the hoodlums attempted to snatch an AK47 rifle from one of the policemen and in the struggle, bullets were released, which hit one of the boys, while the policemen fled.

It was learnt that the killing angered the hoodlums, who regrouped and stormed the constituency office of Oluomo, razing it and torching vehicles.

Oluomo’s belongings reportedly destroyed included five vehicles (three Mercedes 42 seater buses, one Isuzu luxurious bus and a 36 -seater coaster bus) being used for free school shuttle by pupils in Ifo 1 State Constituency.

Oluomo, has urged the police and others to tighten security in Ifo and its environs.

Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
