BILETIRI TUNDE SLAMS COMEDIAN I GO SAVE WITH #500 MILLION LAW SUIT FOR DEFAMATORY STATEMENT

Published

on


Upcoming comedian I Go save is about to be involved in a legal tussle with erstwhile friend if he cannot pay the sum of #500million to Biletiri Tunde within seven days. Information available to us is that I Go Dye, I Go save and Biletiri have been friends for over a decade and he has been helping both of them with their publicity.


Trouble started when Biletiri was to organised some shows in November and December 2019 and he got investors who bought into the idea and was also involved in producing a publication in Bayelsa. Due to his commitment our source informed us that the young entrepreneur was offered a huge project and all of a sudden envy, jealousy became the order of the day.


I go dye then petition Biletiri alleging that he sent assassins to kill him and also used his name to defraud people of millions of naira and the young man was detained for 6 months and his pregnant woman had to even give birth in his absence. We learnt I Go dye even sent a fellow comedian Akas Baba to go and meet him at the station to plead with biletiri to delete what he posted on Instagram which he refused but the stuffs were later deleted by some over zealous officers.

I go dye who was also to perform at the show and already confirmed to have been paid #2.5million, ganged up against Biletiri and all of a sudden I Go Save and Alladams went behind Pikolo and started organising shows with Pikolo chairman and Biletiri was languishing in detention with no help from his friends apart from Pikolo who was Biletiri partner. Biletiri was in detention and was never allowed to organise the said events nor execute the project in the oil rich state.

On getting out of detention, a lot of people defamed his name, business partners started avoiding him and I go save was also propagating lies. Biletiri been an emotional person wanted I go dye, I go save to apologise to him when he made a post on Instagram about the incident, instead both of them blocked him on Instagram and Facebook. Now his family and some reputable foreign Ngo have taken over the matter and they want to pursue it to a logical conclusion.

 sometime in September, 2019 during a telephone interview with one Publisher I Go Save defamed him with the following statement:

 

“Tunde wey dey prison. Tunde dey prison. Igodye no tell you? Tunde dey prison. He dupe different  people carry all their money”. Court sentence am to some years in Prison.

2023: Impeaching Deputy Speaker, Kadiri Will Limit APC Chances In Ogun East

Published

on

By

Ogun East Youths for Good Governance have decried the arrest and detention of the Deputy Speaker, Ogun State House of Assembly, Hon. Oludare Kadiri, by the Police, describing it as a desperate attempt to malign the person of the popular politician and lawmaker in Ijebu North.

The group in a statement made available to newsmen, also dismissed Kadiri’s arrest and detention at the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ogun State Police Command Headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, as “undue and unwarranted political victimization” from deperate quarters which will limit chances of All Progressive Congress in the forthcoming elections.

The statement jointly signed by the group’s President and Secretary, Samuel Adekoya and Adetola Sopeju, respectively, stated that the Deputy Speaker, noted that Hon.Oludare Kadiri has adequately represent his constituents since his election in 2015.

The group further described him as a committed, dedicated, dynamic, focused and purpose-driven lawmaker.

“He has defended the interests of youths, women and the generality of his people and never wavered in positively projecting the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) within and beyond his constituency.”

“We are, however, surprised that a distinguished party man who has risked everything to help bring the current administration on board is now subjected to ridicule and opprobrium”, the group said.

They also noted that the “explanation” by the state police command through its Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, amounts to “reinforcing falsehood” against Kadiri.

According to them, “a viral video of the incident which is making the rounds has cleared the air and shown that Hon. Oludare Kadiri only came for peaceful intervention.

“He never assaulted anyone. If the viral video is critically assessed, one will discover that Hon. Oludare Kadiri came to the scene after Hon. Yinusa had been beaten by some members of the community.

“One will realise that the video was shot at the behest of the Deputy Speaker. He only instructed one of the boys around to take pictures and record the scene for proof, and not what detractors mischievously changed it to that Maba sent thugs to beat up Hon. Yinusa.

“From our independent findings, some aggrieved members of the community had beaten Hon. Yinusa before Maba came into the scene. How can people now shamelessly turn the table against a lawmaker who had been supporting and defending his constituents?

“We want to appeal to well-meaning members of the public to discountenance the spurious claims that the Deputy Speaker was arrested and detained for assault. His ordeal was clearly orchestrated and designed by internal forces bent on tarnishing his image.

“We reject the despicable and ignoble attempts to drag the name of Hon. Oludare Kadiri in the mud.

“The Deputy Speaker needs to be encouraged and supported for his yeoman’s job in bringing more dividends of democracy to the downtrodden and generality of his constituents.

“Silencing and intimidating him would do no good at this point in time.”

LAWMA hits the ground running with the Lagos Recycle Initiative

Published

With the launch and implementation of the Lagos Recycle Initiative, aimed at stemming the tide of plastic pollution in the state, Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has deployed the PAKAM app for seamless coordination of the recycling program.

Tackling the menace of plastic pollution, which had over the years posed serious dangers to residents and the environment, is one of the key visions of the present LAWMA administration, led by Mr. Ibrahim Odumboni. This necessitated the introduction of the Lagos Recycle Initiative.

According to the Managing Director/CEO of LAWMA, Mr. Ibrahim Odumboni, “Recycling is key in the Authority’s drive to make Lagos cleaner and livable, stressing that moving plastic materials from the Lagos waste stream would reduce the volume of waste that eventually gets to dumpsites”.

Odumboni said the Lagos Recycle initiative would deploy an attractive reward system, to encourage waste segregation and timely pick-up of recyclables across the state, emphasizing that residents would be rewarded for gathering their plastic items and handing them over to LAWMA accredited recyclers.

He said the Authority had already established accredited centers across the state for the collection and collation of recyclable materials, which includes PET, pure water sachets, cans, bottles, etc, adding that residents and other stakeholders can simply bring in these recyclables to the centers and be rewarded.

As at the time of filing this report, the following were the categories and weight of recyclables collated over the weekend, across the Authority’s recycling centers:

PET: 6,304kg
Sachets: 56kg
Cans: 5kg
Bottle: 164kg
UBC: 23kg
BCC: 39kg
PWS: 606kg
ONP: 10kg
Others: 55kg

The LAWMA boss commended all stakeholders, especially Wecyclers and Recycle Points, for keying into the Lagos Recycle Initiative, which apart from making the environment cleaner and safer for living, would provide jobs for the teeming youth population in the state.

For all inquiries on the Lagos Recycle Initiative and how to maximize the numerous opportunities in the program, please call our toll-free numbers 07080601020 and 617.
