Governor of Sokoto flogs PHCN Manager with horsewhip

Did you guys read/hear about the governor that flogged a PHCN manager for failing supply electricity to his community?

Yes it did happen. According to the report, the Governor of Sokoto State, Alhaji Aliyu Magataka Wamakko gave N17million to the PHCN manager in charge of a substation in his hometown to buy a new transformer, cables and other things, and when the man didn't deliver, the governor invited him to his house and flogged him with a horsewhip.

A statement from the acting MD of PHCN, Kaduna, when you continue...


“On Saturday, October, 20, our business manager, Gwiwa Business Unit, So-koto State, Moses Osigwe, was invited by Governor Aliyu Wamakko to his personal residence, over the issue of lack of power supply to his hometown, Wamakko, as a result of a failed 2.5MVA transformer.

“He accused Osigwe of deliberately denying his community, Wamakko, of power supply. As the business manager was trying to explain to him, the governor just brought out a horse whip and lashed him,” Adamu said.

According to him, the governor also invited two other members of staff, Isyaku Daura, Officer 2 (Electrical) and Nuru-ddeen Mohammed, Staff 1 (Lines) and ordered his mobile policemen to beat them up.

Only in Nigeria! If a man in his position can flog another man when brainstorming fr a solution should have been the way, why wont some stupid villagers take the law into their own hands in murdering those innocent boys? Your leaders are the worse in the world. What a jungle!

he flogged him?? hahaha! i know this is a serious issue, but... really?? LOL!

NecFix said...

prosecution, no justice of any sort, & of course, more stories of how our leaders abuse power & oppress their subjects would come up. Anyone remember how the rogue ex Governor of Imo State (Ikedi Ohakim) personally flogged the shit out of a journalist & a clergyman couple of yrs back? Did the story not end in the papers & on LIB? After they would come on the media to condemn jungle justice. This is jungle justice combined with abuse of power. What a shame

They should sue the pants of him. If money transferred hands, was it official? If it was official, the issue is with the company and not their branch manager.

We should bring him out and spank him not abuse of office and squandering Nigeria's money. Idiot man. Now you know why the common man is instituting jungle justice. They are following the example of the nincompoops in office

Lol! Good for the PHCN guys, maybe if more governors did this there would be 24 hour electricity all over Nigeria!

and de won't sue? Maybe de don't want to be exposed...

It can only happen in dis country

This is crazy..#u go fear Veto power o#

The unfortunate thing about this shameful story isn't the flogging, But the disturbing fact that this story will end just here in the media. No prosecution, no justice of any sort, & of course, more stories of how our leaders abuse power & oppress their subjects would come up.

We just read about a teacher flogging a studen to death and now we are reading of a governor flogging grown man at a company for not fulfilling a professional obligation. So this is what Nigeria has been reduced to? So we have really descended into serious lawlessness?

Shame on all of you that think this barbaric act is funny. That is why at times I think there is no hope for my country. The leaders and the entire citizenry need a complete change of attitude. How can anyone condone an act like this. Are they no civil ways to handle issues like this? Everybody acting like animals.Make una dey laugh una self. Stupid people!!!!

Sokoto State Governor should be closely monitored as a potential 'BH' supporter/sponsor.

He has openly displayed some 'B H' tendencies by using SHARIA law as his form of punishment instead of allowing the rule of law to prevail.

His actions was not funny at all.

Abeg if he's getting result thru that means fine , Rotimi Amaechi had better adopt that method cos the power supply in PH is rubbish, below 10percent, and yet they demand for bill.

Nigerians pls stop being shallow and see beyond the surface, this kind of encouragements to the governor "ehn he did da right thing or I gbadun this gov" will get us no where. Only in nigeria does a man call a fellow citizen to his house and proceed to flog him, BULLSHIT! We need to open our eyes and stop tolerating crap from our politicians..I happen to be from that part of the north, and could list a dozen other villages in need of a transformer..I do not support what the manager did but for goodness sake who hands out that kind of money to a phcn manager? to go buy a transformer "sounds like something I would tell the children of that village when they ask, "aunt why don't we have light?" sha sha me o I would presume that acquiring transformer thingy's for villages should be the responsibility of the local government!...moral of my post pls make we stand up for our people, encourage our politician's good not their bad actions...P.S Lin Lin, am a first time commenter on ur blog yayy!!!

Ok so governor can flog another fellow man...and nobody is judging him or insulting him. But wen a pastor slaps a young girl for saying somethin not good...it becomes news..public...bad...we need to check and tink of our ways. Hmmm I know if it was a pastor that flogged the phcn manager...people would have insulted and judged him(as usual). Satan is really lookin for pple to be wit him down dere. We need to really be vigilant and pray always. We need to be careful and watch our ways

Anonymous said...

I wonder why you are all saying good job to the Governor for taking the laws into his hands....no one has heard from the ECN/NEPA/PHCN official to hear his side of the story

What if the punishment was more severe like the Aluu 4 (God rest their dear souls), would we be saying good job to the Gov? Does the Gov not believe that the judicial system would prosecue him?? Why take laws into your own hands / whip....my two kobo

@Anonymous October 25, 2012 6:07 PM.Please do yourself a favor go get something serious with your life stop trolling.You're a moron & a clear one too,your comment is such a waste of network bandwidth.Do you actually know what happens in Nigeria?PHCN Officials are one of the most corrupt in the World,have witnessed in a community where the villagers contributed money with a little assist from the state government to buy a new transformer for four years nothing was done they later found out that the money was no where to be accounted for,it took constant pressure by the well known elite in the community stating a report to the Governor,yet the case is still pending due to a new tenure of another Governor.

that serves PHCN people right, in Delta state we xperience such blackouts but who wan talk, @ d end of d month they still bring bill which we pay, how do they get d meter reading when there's no light. PHCN i fear una.

obviously, the ill-gotten dough was spent illegally for his own community and he can not depend on the judicial system to prosecute the ECN/NEPA/PHCN official

Nigeria is a hilarious country... the same people that condemned jungle justice on the uniport boys are using the same mouth to say that what the Governor did was right...

How is the BM the cause of no light to Wammako? Why did he not sunmmon his colleagues in the federal govt and other states, and ask them where the light is after all the funds put in since 1999? Na for small biz manager body wey im get power. They should sue him for assault and battery, with intention to kill; kidnapping; etc...

Shame on you all that are supporting this barbaric act!!!

Nigeria is a very funny place where anything is obtainable. Why would a governor give a PHCN staff irrespective of his position money to buy transformer??? Is there no office in charge of procurement in PHCN? I believe there is a transaction gone bad. Whose money did the governor use to pay for transformer? is his gesture a charitable one? Is his community the only community in the state that does not have power? Is he a communty leader or a state governor??? We need to have a rethink about the way we think...
