Sept 22, 2014 – “I’ll Expose Corrupt Yoruba Kings Who Took Bribe From Abacha” – Lagos King Rilwanu Akinolu Tells Sanusi

The Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, has promised to expose the corrupt monarchs who were bribed by the late military Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha, to assist him to remain in power.

The monarch, who was a former Commissioner of Police, revealed that he has their names and knows the role of every monarch, especially, the Yoruba monarchs during the late dictator’s regime.

Oba Akiolu vowed to expose the corrupt monarchs after the 2015 general elections.

The monarch stated this in Ijebu Ode during the royal visit of the Emir of Kano, HRH Muhammed Sanusi II to the Awujale and paramount ruler of Ijebuland,Oba (Dr.) Sikiru Kayode Adetona.

Oba Akiolu said: “Awujale is not one of the corrupt monarchs. When the time comes, I will expose those monarchs who were then given money as bribe in order to aid the former Head of State, Gen. Sanni Abacha, to remain in power.

“I was a Commissioner of Police then in Lagos. I was in the meeting when the money was shared among the monarchs. I know those that collected it. I was given the share of Awujale to send it across to him, but I told them right there that he will never collect the money and truly, when he was approached, he rejected it out rightly.

“There are some monarchs that I personally took their own share to and they collected it from me. I have their names and when the time comes, I will expose them. I am not afraid of anybody, they are corrupt and those are some of the bad eggs in the traditional institution. These are the people, you (Emir of Kano) should be very careful of associating with,” Akiolu stated.

    Look at the pot calling the kettle black. Can Akiolu account for his riches. Where did he get the money to build the doctors’ flats at Okesuna. Not to talk of the High rise he had at Ajasa.

    The man you want to reveal this to is corrupt himself. When he was the central Bank governor, he unilaterally gave govern money to people of Kano state that were attacked by Boko Haram. Where did he get the money from? Did he have the right to give out government money to his people? what of other people that are not from Kano state equally attacked by the Islamic sect? I admire your guts to fight corruption but why are you coming out now to expose those people? the man you are complaining to is equally corrupt if not more corrupt. Sanusi is a vboko haram apologist.

    You will expose them, then what? the bribe they took from Abacha was not Abacha’money, the money belong to the country after-all. Why planning on betraying them now? If you have personal problem with them, find a way of resolving it instead.
