An interior decorator, Olalekan Ogunsanya’s throat was slit by a policeman, identified merely as ASP Francis, during an argument in the Itire area of Lagos State.
Agbolajo also alleged that the Itire Police Division, where the case was reported, had in a bid to cover up the crime, released Francis.
Nigerians, while reacting to the post, condemned Francis’ action after seeing the gory pictures of the victim undergoing an operation to save his life.
It was gathered that Francis was attached to the G1 Section, Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department annexe, Alagbon, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Ogunsanya told our correspondent that Francis, while conveying his family to the hospital, knocked him down with his car and when he demanded an explanation and an apology, the cop punched him in the face.
“I was very annoyed as all I wanted was for him to apologise, but he kept saying ‘Do you know who I am?’ He then brought out a horsewhip and a knife and stepped out of his car, but as he advanced towards my direction, I ran and picked up a saw to defend myself,” the father of two told our correspondent.
Francis allegedly retreated and went back into his car, and the people around restrained Ogunsanya and the policeman attempted to attack him again.
He said, “But I quickly blocked him from coming down from his car, I pinned him down to his car and gave him a few punches until the people dragged me back. After he disembarked from the vehicle, he used the horsewhip on me and the knife to slit my throat.
“We kept on fighting, and I never knew I was bleeding heavily until people called my attention to it. His wife quickly went to report at the Itire Police Station, and we both went there as people were scared of coming close to us. When we got there, he kept saying that he would ensure that I was jailed.
“The police called a photographer to take my pictures and gave me a report to go to the hospital for treatment. I gave the person who posted the incident online the permission to do so because I want justice. Those who saw when I was being treated didn’t believe that I would survive.
“People thought that I had died, but I thank God that I am alive. I am feeling pain around my neck. If I were the one who injured him the way he did to me, I would be in a cell by now, but because he is a policeman, he was released.”
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, said there was an altercation between the policeman and Ogunsanya, adding that the command had launched an investigation into the incident to ascertain what truly transpired.
He stated, “Our division at Itire got a complaint from the wife of the police officer, she said her husband was taking her and their kids to the hospital for an appointment for their daughter who was to undergo a surgery. But when they got to the traffic point around Lawanson, vehicles were going at a slow pace and Ogunsanya suddenly passed in front of their vehicle.
“She said her husband was even cautioning him, but the man turned back and punched him. So, the husband became aggressive, parked and came out of the car and started fighting with Ogunsanya.
“During the fight, they both sustained injuries, and we later identified the woman’s husband as a serving officer attached to the FCIID annexe in Ikoyi, while Ogunsanya is an interior decorator. Medical attention was given to Ogunsanya, and the cut he got was stitched.
“According to the policeman, Ogunsanya attacked him with a weapon, and while defending himself, Ogunsanya used the weapon to injure himself.
“But the man said the policeman was the one who brought out a knife from his car and attacked him with it. An investigation is ongoing to find out what happened. The fact remains that there was an altercation between them and there was an exchange of blows, but the man is alive and not dead. We have launched an investigation into the case.”

UFC: Nigerian Born Isreal Adesanya defeats Robert Whittaker!
Houston-Texas. Israel Mobolaji Temitayo Odunayo Oluwafemi Owolabi Adesanya; born in Lagos, Nigeria, defeated Robert Whittaker at the UFC 271 in Houston, Texas. Sports pundits now believe his reign of dominance has just began. He is unstoppable. The 32-year-old Adesanya, alias ‘The Last Stylebender’ is a mixed martial artist, kickboxer, and former boxer with multiple championships in all three disciplines.
It was a unanimous decision in the main event of UFC 271 to defend his middleweight title and push his record over his rival to a perfect 2-0. The two fought for 25 minutes and a unanimous decision was awarded to Adesanya, as he scored 48–47, 48–47, and 49–46 on the three judges’ scorecards.
During the post-match press briefing, Robert Whittaker, who lost for the second time to Isreal said –“I thought I did enough, I thought I did enough,” Whittaker told MMA Junkie at the post-fight press conference. “Breaking it down, I think I lost the first round. I put myself together and I beat him to every punch. I got takedowns. I thought I did enough.
“But it is what it is. That’s how work goes in the office. I’m going to go back evolve some more, get better, and fine tune the things that I’ve been working on, and come back a better man. Honestly, though, Izzy was my biggest obstacle, my biggest hurdle. He beat me in a good fashion the first time. I’ve been working and angling myself to evolve and to get better and I’ve done that. You can see it in this fight how far I’ve come. To the point that I think I beat him.
So, I’m excited. I’m excited for the future. The ceiling is nowhere in sight. There is no ceiling for me.”
Adesanya and Whittaker are the two best 185-pound fighters in the world. Although the gap between them may have narrowed slightly since UFC 243, the gulf between Whittaker and whoever qualifies as No. 3 on any given day has only widened.
A very big congratulation to a fellow Naija man.
Jeff Zucker , CNN President Resigns.
CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker, the influential news executive who reshaped the iconic network, announced Wednesday morning that he has resigned from his position effective immediately.
Zucker’s stunning announcement came less than two months after he fired prime time anchor Chris Cuomo for improperly advising his brother, then-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, about how to address sexual misconduct allegations.
“As part of the investigation into Chris Cuomo’s tenure at CNN, I was asked about a consensual relationship with my closest colleague, someone I have worked with for more than 20 years,” Zucker told employees in a memo. “I acknowledged the relationship evolved in recent years. I was required to disclose it when it began but I didn’t. I was wrong. As a result, I am resigning today.”
Zucker did not name his colleague, but the relationship is with Allison Gollust, his key lieutenant for the last two decades. Gollust is remaining at CNN.
