“BOMB” by Ngozi Ezeonu
Nollywood star Ngozi Ezeonu should know that the word “bomb” is always pronounced with the silent “b” at the end. What is T4T saying sef, Aunt Ngo should know more.

But Ezeonu in the Nollywood movie titled Helpless Marriage, T4T saw him on Wednesday night, proudly uttered bombshell with the very heavy last ‘b’. Well, even if Aunt Ngozi doesn’t know it, Ugezu J Ugezu, the SUPER director and actor renowned for always writing the longest screenplays in the film industry (Ugezu’s films can last five hours, minimum) , who directed the film, should know .

Well, for a change, DSTV showed a movie from 2021, which hadn’t happened for a long time. We are getting there!

Sanwo Olu State BRT Bus and LASTMA (2)
Last week, T4T wrote about the decay that is gradually creeping into Lagos State’s bus transport operations, commonly referred to as BRT. Little did he know that the worst awaited him at the Ikorodu bus station.

On Wednesday, T4T left Mainland Lagos from Barracks bus stop. The next day things took a different turn and were delayed until around 7.40pm before arriving at Ikorodu bus station. It was dark as hell at this time of night and we wondered why a crowded terminal of this size wouldn’t be lit! It was so dark that anyone who didn’t know where to get on their bus to get to their destination would surely fumble or ask people whose faces you can’t see.

Bus attendants held cellphones with torches, which they use to get around. Come on na, what does it take to install solar lights if the use of a generator occasioned by the rising cost of diesel would be too much for an already burdened government?

And another thing, the television sets in the buses no longer work. The stop buttons that a passenger will press to indicate their bus stop are all dead, so now Lagosians used to Molue and Danfo have reverted to the familiar “Driver, owa o” or “I wan drop o”, if you don’t speak Yoruba. It is very disappointing!

Governor Sanwo Olu, once again, T4T calls on you, don’t let the BRT you inherited die under your watch!

What was the police spokesperson saying?
POLICE PR Officer PRO set social media on fire when he posted on Twitter earlier this week that Nigerians risk jail time if they retaliate when a police officer slaps them or attacked them.

The statement came following video leaked online where two young men were seen dragging a police officer’s AK 47 rifle in a bid to disarm him for allegedly taking one of the boy’s mobile phones.

And so the Police Spokesman got upset and warned Nigerians never to dare to slap an officer who had slapped them or else…this statement will go down in history as one of the most reckless statements ever made by a police spokesperson!

What one expected to hear from a man in this position was advising the public and his men not to assault civilians in the line of duty. But now he had inadvertently given his police officers at different roadblocks extorting Nigerians for free meal tickets to slap us to join the extortion as no one would dare to respond.

Why would a cop slap someone in the first place, which will require revenge? One of the common reasons police officers slap civilians in Nigeria, especially young men who are automatically “yahoo” boys (internet fraud) in the eyes of an average policeman, is when they ask for their phone or their laptop and that the Inspector General of Police had repeatedly warned his men not to check people’s phones on the road because they need a court order to do so, but they hear?

Oga PRO, suppose that was a slip, because some of us know you as a thoroughbred pro. And the fact that a day later he actually came back to say he had been misinterpreted (they all say that after a slip) like we don’t know English anymore.

Anyway, the police on patrol and at roadblocks, una oga don give una license to slap anyone who dares to ask a simple question. Roll.

LASTMA’s new “assignment”
A video surfaced online about two days ago where a LASTMA official was seen telling a young man to get out of a utility vehicle because he was an alleged “Yahoo” boy.

The manager of the transportation agency was so serious; he was actually registering the “suspect” and ordering him out of the vehicle. At first T4T wanted to laugh but the way the guy was serious anyone watching would no longer be amused as there is grave danger for all of us which may later spawn another #EndLASTMA riot because this is as well as the disbanded SARS began.

What did this LASTMA official smoke that day? How did he finish his job of directing traffic to Lagos from all places that he became so inactive and started looking for ‘yahoo’ boys? Are the police on a break?

If the boss of LASTMA reads this now, he must organize a new training seminar to explain to the boys their real job.
