Ogun State Lawmakers ask robbers to declare temporary ceasefire...too silly!


The Ogun State House of Assembly on Wednesday appealed to armed robbers operating in the state and neighbouring ones to suspend their activities in the light of the junior World Cup going on in the country.

The Assembly reminded the robbers that any of their operations during the period of the tournament will give the country a bad name, as several foreign visitors are in the country now. Ogun is one of the states hosting teams in the competition.

The lawmakers agreed to beg the bandits during deliberations on the floor of the House, at their Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta complex. A member, Edward Ayo Odugbesan had raised an alarm that the Isheri bridge, which links Ogun with Lagos State, has become a den of bandits.

"I want to appeal to the men of the underworld to suspend their actions and operations in the interim because of our foreign visitors currently in the state," Mr. Odugbesan said. "Then they can resume thereafter, because there is nowhere in the world where robbers and robberies could be stopped from their work."

 Lol at the above statement. If armed robbery is 'work', then I guess some of us need to start sending in our CVs. *hiss*

I didn't know that it has come to this. We now beg robbers to cease fire in the interim and resume their 'work' after. Does that look a solution? Our leaders have failed Nigerians and have continued to fail Nigerians.

So they even know the robbers, otherwise how did they make the apeal to them? When are they going to be convened, hold a summit and grant them amnesty?

That is what we get when we select Riff-raffs to represent us in govt. I don't blame them because that is the best they can do. None of them thought about tightening security around that bridge and other hot spots secrectly, so that they can capture the guys. Empowerment of Armed robbers.?.....only in Nigeria.
