Segun Aromokunola’s is one of the active socioeconomic and political commentator keenly monitored online by kosofepost, on several walls and pages , who never failed to hit the nail on its ahead when necessary on any social discourse.
In reaction to our piece titled : Thugs, Hooligans, Time Bomb Waiting To Explode In Lagos has this to say;
“I think thuggery has been professionalized in Lagos and other states are learning from Lagos. The fact of the matter is that our political leaders across party lines encourage this thugs and the young one coming see it as a job and most enterprising one at that. I remember in one of our past election years ago a thug in our area was given 250k and I queried why he should be paid so much while the party men that toiled day and night were given 2-3k . The response I got was that party men or women cannot snatch ballot box or prevent whoever that wanted to snatch box from the polling units.
“I, also heard of a land matter involving a senior politician and an oil company in Kosofe here. What the political leader did was to go to the meeting with thugs after using his influence in government to threaten the officials of the oil company.
“What about the Mc Oluomo the head thug in Oshodi ?. He was taken to Eko hospital and others including senior journalist who sustained injuries at APC Lagos rally were taken to general hospital. Eko hospital was secured by men of RRS while others were left to fend for themselves. Top political leaders were sighted in Eko hospital paying visit to the Oshodi guy. So the thugs have support and backing of our leaders. I would have thought our leaders will encourage this guys to acquire vocational training and skills that will make them contribute meaningfully to the society than engaging them to sustain their continued political relevance.
