A house in Rockville, Maryland, United States, purchased by a former governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, in 2016 for $1,347,200m -- N522,713,600m (N388 per USD) -- has been uncovered.
The residential building located at 10821 Symphony Park Drive, which attracts an annual tax of $18,198 -- N7,060,824m --was purchased by Ajimobi during his second term in office as governor of the state in 2016.
According to findings, the purchase of the house in America is in gross violation of the code of conduct laws of Nigeria, which forbids serving public officials from operating bank accounts and purchasing property outside the country.
It was also gathered from sources at the Code of Conduct Bureau that the property was not listed among assets declared by the former Oyo governor until his tenure in office elapsed in 2019.

Also, checks with top real estate players in the US indicated that the Maryland property of Ajimobi was now worth at least $1.6m -- N620,800,000m.
The revelation comes days after Ajimobi died at the First Cardiology Hospital in Ikoyi, Lagos, as a result of Coronavirus complications.
Before his demise, the late former governor had been embroiled in a bitter feud with the Oyo State Government headed by Seyi Makinde over the revocation of 48 plots of land belonging to him.

According to the state government, the revocation became necessary after the property violated its land administration laws.

Unwilling to lose the choice property without putting up a brave fight, Ajimobi took the matter to court where it remained until he died last week.

Nigerian Man Appreciates Soldier Who Helped Him When He Was Stranded In The Rain (Photos)


Dotun Ajayi, Corporal Etuk Emmanuel

A Nigerian man, Dotun Ajayi, has taken to social media to hail a Nigerian soldier who helped him to fix his car when it developed a fault while it was raining in Ibadan, Oyo state on Tuesday, June 30.

Ajayi in his post, recounted how the soldier whose name he gave as Corporal Etuk Emmanuel, helped him in his time of need. He said soldiers like Etuk are rewriting the narrative about the Nigerian Army.

Read His Post Below;

''A worthy soldier and gentleman.

This evening on my way back from my brother’s house , my car developed a fault simply because the road is bad (Ojuirin - Olorunda road after Akobo in Ibadan) I was practically helpless because there were no mechanics in sight and it was raining heavily too.

Then this angel in the form of a Nigerian soldier showed up, he asked what the problem was and offered to help. He knelt in the rain and when he couldn’t fix it, he asked me to carefully drive the car to the barracks and there he was going to fix it. I accepted his offer gladly and we ended up at the military workshop where he fixed my car within minutes.

I have heard many stories about our military men, but this is totally different and I was impressed. Men like lance Corpral Etuk Emmanuel are rewriting stories about the Nigerian Army one act of service at a time.

This is the Nigeria Army of our dreams. Please help me to appreciate this galant soldier who chose to help a civilian like me in Nigeria in the year "2020.''

I Rape Housewives And Force Husbands To Watch During Robbery Operation - Armed Robber Confesses (Photo)

Adeniyi Ajayi
A self-confessed robber and serial rapist, yesterday revealed why he  rapes women and maids in the presence of their husbands and bosses.
According to him, it is a punishment for refusing to give him money, during operation.
Rather than showing remorse for his action, the suspect, Adeniyi Ajayi, 27, an ex-convict, begged the Police to kill him, instead of sending him back to prison.
Ajayi, who runs a one-man squad, was arrested by operatives of the Special Anti- Robbery Squad, SARS, in a hotel at Ijora 7-up area of Lagos.
His modus operandi was to break into victims’ homes, ordering them to cooperate with him or risk being killed by other members of his gang whom he claimed had surrounded the building.
When news of his arrest filtered round Sabo and its environ, eight victims, some of who were civil servants and lawyers, stormed SARS office to affirm that he raped them during operation.
Among them were also two female staff of a company in Sabo, who disclosed that he raped them right before their male colleagues, in broad daylight on June 16,20.
During interrogation, he admitted culpability. He said: ” Yes, I rape women whose husbands refused to give me money, and those tried to make things difficult for me during operation.

” I operated alone, with just torchlight. But I would be giving orders to my imaginary gang members, on where to position themselves, just to give the impression that I was not alone.

” The solution to this act is for the Police to waste my life because if they take me to prison, I will come back hardened and I don’t want to keep disturbing Nigerians. It is better they waste my life”.
When asked what he meant by waste his life, he replied, ” they should just kill me to end it all”.
