If you live in VGC you may have come across his convoy, a Hilux filled with mean looking policemen in the front and another Hilux full of police behind. His favorite car is a Mercedes G63 Brabus which has no registration number beyond the word “Brabus” on it (it’s not the personalized shit o, dude is just too big to register his car), squeezed between the Hiluxes and other luxury cars.
You might be mistaken to think it’s President Buhari’s convoy as you are not allowed to overtake, those who have made that mistake nearly never lived to tell the story. The occupant is no president, no governor, not the Senate President not even an LG Chairman but an ordinary citizen called JULIAN OSULA (the bearded guy in the picture above).
Julian boasts about his power, and his police convoy will convince any doubter. He claims to be “very close” to Patience Jonathan and that even if The Jonathan’s are out of power his influence can never wane. But Julian for all his braggadocio is a simple trader. He sells luxury wristwatches to the high and mighty and Patience Jonathan was one of his biggest customers. He was one of the newly minted Niger Delta billionaires that sprung up last administration.
Well this story is about what Julian and his police guards have done to ordinary citizens who dared to overtake his convoy on public roads. The screenshot on the right is from a victim who claimed he pulled a gun on him on the road and they beat him up but let me talk about the one I know (the one on the left is about this case)
On Wednesday night, GBENGA ADEKOYA was going home to his family in VGC after a hard days job when he negotiated his land cruiser to overtake the slow moving convoy ahead of him. Almost fatal error, as soon as he did, a Hilux filled with Mobile Police crossed him, blocked him, hit his car with gun butts, dragged him out, beat the hell out of him and sprayed some chemical in his eyes.
The “big man” in the convoy was enjoying the show from his car. Gbenga was taken to the hospital and has now been flown abroad struggling not to lose his eyesight. A petition has been written against OSULA to the IGP, but Osula’s relationship with the top echelon of the Police is watertight and the petition may not see the light of day.
I am through this medium calling the attention of the FG, all law enforcement agencies, the Lagos State Government and any other responsible body to arrest and prosecute OSULA. They also need to explain to us how an ordinary citizen can use policemen paid for by tax payers to harass and endanger these same tax payers on roads built by their taxes.
WE WANT JUSTICE FOR GBENGA ADEKOYA, TODAY.
In response to this incident the wife of Julian Osula had this to say:
Good evening all, I am Mrs. Oghogho Osula. Not a writer neither a blogger or active on instagram. I am writing about the unfortunate incident last week Wednesday 15th of November around 8.30pm at Chevron toll gate regarding Mr. Adekoya who I heard had a brief confrontation with a part of the security team in my husband’s convoy.
My husband Mr Julian Osula was not at the scene during the altercation, so he could not have supervised the security operatives.
Julian Osula has apologised on instagram, instablog. He has apologised on phone to Mr. Adekoya the next day because that was when he got his number, apologised to the wife as well on phone.
We are willing to apologise in person. We do not know them personally neither are we claiming to be untouchable.
We have no relationship nor connection with Patience Jonathan neither do we consider ourselves Niger Delta billionaires
The event is regrettable and the officers involved are facing disciplinary action.
Please hear from the other side before passing judgement.
I apologise and sympathise with the family and whoever is affected by this.
It was inadvertent and regretted.
My husband is the kindest and most generous person I know. He is God fearing and a lover of the down trodden. He likes to live the good life, because he believes you only live once, which may not go down well with many. The Brabus in question has a special registration as Brabus.
Please hear from the other side and ask other people who know him. He is a gentleman and a normal human being with strengths and weaknesses.
We have been seeking for an amicable solution
God bless you all
