The docking of Adedibu-one good news but….

Adeola Aderounmu.

Ok. Finally, one man who has been above the law in Nigeria finally got a taste of the law court. Adedibu was released on bail after been charged for activities capable of breaching the peace in Oyo and the entire country. 

 “The magistrate granted Adedibu bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum. The sureties must own properties in Abuja.”

There was jubilation in Ibadan when the news broke out that the man ABOVE the law was finally getting a taste of the law.

This is good for governance, that people can only be free if they are slaves to the law. It shouldn’t have taken this long to drag this man to the court. But that he was in court at all is a BIG step forward and that move should be applauded.

BUT this is my fear, this whole thing could be a kangaroo arrangement. Mike Okiro could have arranged this with Adedibu to make it seem as if he was doing his job well or to give more credence to the illegitimate government in Nigeria.

The reason for my fear is that beyond this arrangement/arraignment and bail, this man should not be a free man today. He has unleashed terror on innocent people, his activities has led to several deaths and anarchy in Oyo in the past.

It shouldn’t have taken Dora Akinyuli, the NAFDAC Boss, to bring Adedibu to court.

Justice must be done, Adedibu must answer to crimes that he committed. Until then, this whole arraignment and release on bail is too cosmetic. People should pay for crimes, for murder and other heinous activities so as to serve as a deterrent to others who are always bent on going against the rule of law.
