Obaremi was a governor of his state. He ended up as a reckless man.
During his tenure, he appointed every local government chairmen
without the choice of the masses.
In one of his escapades,he ordered
mr. Toje (the coordinator of Ile-ife development centre) to withhold
the salary of the workers. As a good coordinator, mr. Toje turned the
order down. After a month, mr. Toje was accused of manslaughter.
In order to avail himself the freedom, mr. Toje went to the
court to sue his accuser. Unknowingly to him,the governor (Obaremi)
had gone to the court to pay a tithe to them. Reaching the court, they
did not seek hearing from him.
The presiding judge pronounced "mr. Toje,you are hereby convicted
under four count charges (1) manslaughter (2) misappropriation of
government fund (3) violation of PDP law (4) certificate forgery which
is punishable under section iv
of local government bye-law. For the
hereby sentence you to ten years imprisonment". when mr. Toje
heard this,his heart panted. He collapsed and was rushed to a
As mr. Toje was still in the
hospital,the governor sent his men to go there and eliminate him. He
compensated the family with two million naira (2,000,000).
Swimming in oblivion, Toje's wife
fell for the governor. In order to reward the woman (madam Toje) for
her blindness,the governor initiated her into the money lovers for
blood (MONLOB). In the same venue,the governor met comrade Kunle (a
cultist). He appointed him as the youth leader.
As they say "an old woman is never old in the dance she is
majored", kunle started his hidden escapades. He started buying Jeeps
for those who have up to five children. If he buys a
Jeep for you, two or more of your children would die. He bought a
Toyota Camry for his neighbour (mr. Kodunmi). The man drove
in the car and had an accident and died.
His wife also became insane. After much prayers,the wife gained her
consciousness. Kunle did the same and got rich and richer.
After the first tenure of governor Obaremi, he contested for the
second term in the office and won through rigging. He appointed as
usual. When he wanted to appoint Hon. (mrs) Kayinde as the councillor
representing Ile -ife ward ii, the vice chairman of the local
government objected it. He met the woman and told her to raise alarm
that the vice came to rape her. Owing to that,the vice was tried. His
case was adjourned until six years from the year of accusation by the
court. He was left under police custody until then. As the vice was
still in the prison,the governor sent some men to hang him.
Failure is a strength to a mighty hero. This adage is
authentic if the hero does not give up. All the workers in the local
government wailed "what shall one do to please our
self-conscious governor? The only good leader we have is being
crucified. Oh! God,why have you forsaken us? Why did you collect and
gave us devil as a leader?". The prayers of the workers were fruitful.
The boys sent by the governor to eliminate the vice changed their mind
against the governor. When they met the vice,they consoled him and
told him that they were going to retaliate the governor.
When the boys reached
the governor's lodge,he was sacrificing to his oracle. They hung him
on the tree of the shrine. All was not courageous enough to lay down
the Governor's corpse.
days,the vice was tried and acquitted. All the workers and non-workers
of the local government and the state as a whole celebrated the demise
of the governor.
In the transcendental cosmos,the
governor met satan on his throne: he said "master,i tried all i could
to bring much souls for you but i
was cut short by those i sent for the task". Satan groaned and said
"my careless son! You are no more worthy to be with me". He sent him
away. He went to God but was rejected. He wanted to resurrect but he
was already buried. He started attacking his members. He appeared to
comrade kunle but could not hurt him. He appeared to madam Toje and
killed her. When he reached to the vice, he was hanging a stock of
cocoyam on the head corner of his bed. The stock pinned the governor
(now a spirit) that he was not able to disappear as usual. He remained
static without a word. The vice called the prayer warriors in his
church to pray against the agent of the devil without knowing that he
has been rejected by both the almighty God and the satan. After their
prayers, the governor turned into a snake and other sorts. At the
end,he became a pillar of salt.
