NCAC DG, Runsewe, Commended For Speaking Against Nudity, Bobrisky



Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture, Otunba Segun Runsewe, has been commended for rising up against nudity and immoral acts in the society.

In an open letter on Friday, a social commentator, John Akosa, hailed Runsewe for protecting the culture of the country by frowning against acts that bring shame to Nigeria and her people and also condemning the activities of popular cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye widely known as Bobrisky.

Recall that Bobrisky had received a warning from Runsewe to desist from engaging in acts that rubbishes Nigeria’s rich culture.

After that warning, Bobrisky fired back by boasting that nobody could touch him because he had connections in ‘high places’.

But in a move that signalled NCAC’s intent to protect Nigeria’s culture, the police in Lagos on August 31 sealed two venues scheduled to host the 28th birthday celebration of Bobrisky while the cross-dresser went into hiding thereafter.

Applauding Runsewe for the feat and protecting the future of Nigerian youth, Akosa said, “I hail your dedication and wisdom to draw the attention of Nigerians to the open deviant attitude of Idris Okuneye known as Bobrisky.

“Even though I do not speak for Nigerians, majority are happy and glad that you took the frontal battle to this community of confusionists and upholders of negative and insidious appearances.

“Continue to serve Nigeria to the best of your ability, encourage our return to the best usage of our culture and also focus on the youth who are future defenders of our culture.

“Do well to develop cultural programmes that can help restore our pride in our heritage and history.”

Nigerian Musician Dammy Krane To Be Arraigned Monday, Risks 3 Years’ Imprisonment



Nigerian musician, Johnson Oyindamola, aka Dammy Krane, risks three years in jail as the Zone 2 Police Command is set to arraign him on Monday, Punch reports.

According to the newspaper, Dammy Krane will be arraigned on three counts before an Igbosere magistrate’s court in Lagos bordering on a threat to life, defamation, and conduct likely to cause a breach of peace.

The musician was accused of threat to the life of Merrybet Gold Limited employees on July 25, 2019, and also released a song in which he also made an allegation of the firm of breach of contract.

The act is said to be in contravention of sections 301, 412 and 168 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.

The musician was also accused of conspiring with others at large of conducting himself in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace and threat to life in contravention of Section 412 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.

Dammy Krane was also said to have threatened public peace when he posted an audio and video message on Cool FM 96.9 in contravention of Section 168(d) of the state’s criminal law.

The charges read in part, “That you, Johnson Hunga Oyindamola and others at large on the 29th day of July 2019, at Cool FM in the Lagos magisterial district did conspire amongst yourselves to commit felony to wit: Conduct likely to cause breach of peace and threat to life and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 412 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.”

Another charge read, “That you, Johnson Hunga Oyindamola and others at large on the same date, time and place in the aforementioned magisterial district did threaten the life of the staff of Merrybet Gold Limited and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 301 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.”

Section 301 of the state’s criminal law states that any person who, with intent to extort or gain anything from any person; accuses or threatens to accuse any person of committing any felony or misdemeanour, or of offering or making any solicitation or threat to any person as an inducement to commit or permit the commission of any felony or misdemeanour… is guilty of a felony, and liable to imprisonment for three years.

The musician got into trouble after Merrybet Gold Limited wrote a petition to the police accusing the musician of threats and cyberbullying.

In a petition titled, ‘Petition against Mr Oyindamola Johnson Emmanuel aka Dammy Krane for false and libellous statement against Merrybet Gold Limited and signed by its lawyer, Nwabueze Anachebe, the betting firm said the musician perpetrated cyberbullying and criminal defamation.

The musician was said to have attended a game show sponsored by the betting company but lost.

However, Dammy Krane was said to have demanded some money for appearing on the show but the firm disagreed, insisting that the sum was only given to winners.
