Breaking: Amosun’s Aide, Mikky Kazeem Indicted For Gun-running

..... to Face Prosecution, as Police Orders His Arrest

A shade of darkness and a blush of shame conspicuously tarnish the visage of Sen. Ibikunle Amosun. For the two-time governor of Ogun State, ambition, clearly, is the grand enemy of all tact, the eternal adversary to his peace. Perhaps Amosun simply needs to get out of his own way.

Since he quit the State House as executive governor of Ogun State, the native of Owu has curiously committed his bulk and whittled repute to an ill-conceived popularity test with his successor in the State House at Oke Mosan, Governor Dapo Abiodun.

His recent attempt was at the party’s congress last Saturday and predictably, he suffered devastating defeat at all fronts.

The history of Sen. Amosun has been one continuous gaffe from one melee to the other. Like the proverbial maladroit, he failed to realise that his undoing was by dint of his own hands. His impotence won’t catch up with him until the very end.

At the heel of his previous infractions against his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), Amosun has dribbled himself into yet another bind.

Interestingly, the immediate past governor of Ogun State and some of his aides have been fingered in the mayhem at the palace of Alake of Egbaland during a factional APC Congress in the State, last Saturday.

According to the police statement, made available On October 16, 2021, while men of its SWAT team and other tactical units patrolled the town ,to monitor the legitimate party congress, an unregistered Hilux vehicle was sighted with suspicious characters inside it.

The occupants of the vehicle: Ibrahim Amoje ‘M’, Yusuf Azeez ‘M’, Olaide Sodiq ‘M’, Adewale Ogundele ‘M’, Femi Oke ‘M’, Balogun Olawale Dhikrullahi ‘M,’ on sighting policemen ahead, tried to conceal something in the vehicle. Suspecting foul play, the policemen stopped the vehicle and searched it thoroughly, discovering an English Berreta pistol with breach no PT 92 AFS, with five live ammunition. One locally fabricated revolver pistol was also recovered in the vehicle.

Security sources revealed that during interrogation, one of the suspects claimed that Amosun’s former aide, Mikky Kazeem, an ex-member of the House of Representatives, was their major sponsor. He claimed Kazeem provided them with the Beretta pistol. Subsequently, a warrant has since been issued for the arrest of Kazeem.

“I have ordered for his arrest” and he will soon be arrested, the CP said.

The police had, on Monday, paraded about six thugs suspected to be loyalists of the former governor.

A source close to Senator Amosun’s camp said “worried by the situation, the Amosun camp had been trying to secure the suspects release. Amosun’s uncle, Alhaji Okewole, had been identified as one of the troublemakers in the state, allegedly mobilized resources to secure the release of the hoodlums from police custody”

Findings show that the Hilux in which the suspects were driving before their arrest has been mysteriously disappeared from where it was parked.

Senator Amosun, who technically pulled out from the APC in 2019 to the Allied people’s Movement (APM), after he failed to secure the party’s ticket for his protege, Adekunle Akinlade, hasn’t come to terms with the misfortune of his loss at the last general elections, as his candidate was trounced by the incumbent governor of the state, Prince Dapo Abiodun, at the poll proper.

Rather than exhibit sportsmanship since his monumental loss, he has been devising means to decimate the influence of the party in the state.

However, Hon. Mikky Kazeem did not pick calls made to his telephone lines to state his own side of the story over the allegations made against him. We even heard from sources close to him that he has gone underground.

Note that, the controversial politician had always been making the headlines for the wrong reasons; in Oyo, a group within the state chapter of APC has accused Amosun of fueling crises in the state chapter of the party.

Amosun is said to be working to hijack the party’s structure in Oyo. The group, named the United Front (TUF), called on President Muhammadu Buhari and other leaders of the party to intervene and stop Amosun from causing more crises in the party.

“Amosun takes absolute delight in the fragmentation of Oyo APC for the purpose of extending the web of schism he established in Ogun APC to other parts of the South-West.

“His divisive ego-trip in Oyo State can be traced to the build-up to the 2019 elections when he extensively bankrolled Unity Forum to tear the fabrics of the party’s wholeness apart – a move that triggered the inevitable lacklustre performance of the party in the gubernatorial polls,” the group stated this in a statement made available to newsmen in Ibadan on Sunday”

“As Amosun writhes in throes of his recent catastrophic defeat, will he be able to rid himself of every link with the suspects and complicity in the mayhem at Ake Palace grounds?

Who knows, his risible cap may yet tower atop his ego, again? Until then, it will remain at its current height: cut to size.”he concluded
