Notorious Osun thug Emir arrested, transferred to Abuja



The Osun State Police Command has arrested Oyeyemi Ajagungbade Olalekan, a notorious thug in the state.

Olalekan, also known as Emir, was reportedly arrested by operatives of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit of the command.

DAILY POST also gathered that he was transferred to the Force Headquarters, Abuja, immediately after his arrest.

The Command had declared him wanted on July 2, 2022, for alleged murder, cultism, and armed robbery.

The Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, appointed him a member of the Transport Disciplinary Committee of the state on January 9, 2023.

A police source confirmed that he was arrested few days ago for beating a man with dangerous objects, including a knife and machete, and the man was in coma in an undisclosed hospital in the state.

It was gathered that relatives of the victim reported the matter to the Inspector-General of Police who ordered the Anti-Kidnapping Unit to bring him to Abuja.

He was released and later rearrested while the state Commissioner of Police, Patrick Kehinde Longe, received the signal to transfer him to Abuja.

“He was asked to report to the office of Anti-Kidnapping in Osogbo to settle the matter with his victim and he drove in. He had been arrested before the officers informed the Commissioner of Police that they had an order from the IGP to bring the suspect to Abuja. He was whisked to Abuja in a Hilux with his car,” the source said.

Olalekan had been fingered in the killings of five persons including Oyewale Sherif after the inauguration of Governor Adeleke and the burning alive of one person, Olalekan Waheed.

He was alleged to have have also led thugs to snatch ballot boxes in Boripe, Osogbo and Olorunda local governments during the general elections in the state.

The Osun State Chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, during and after the general elections petitioned the police authorities and raised an alarm over his criminal activities which included killings and physical attacks on its members.

He was also alleged to have been involved in the killings of more than five persons during the recently concluded Osun Osogbo festival in August.

Eyewitnesses alleged he escaped in Adeleke’s convoy to avert being arrested by the police.

The spokesperson of the Osun State Police Command, Yemisi Opalola, however, declined to comment on the matter

Fulham 0-2 Chelsea: Mudryk, Broja strike to earn Blues their second league win of the season



Chelsea bagged two first-half goals to seal a crucial win over West London rivals Fulham at Craven Cottage and move up to 11th on the Premier League table.

The Blues flew out of the blocks as they debuted their new Infinite Athlete kit and created the first chance of the match after only 80 seconds, but Armando Broja could not capitalise.

Chelsea looked bright with Enzo Fernandez conducting affairs, and they picked the Cottagers apart.

Mykhailo Mudryk was looking electric and dangerous. The Ukrainian winger opened the scoring on 18 as he controlled a pass from Levi Colwill before slotting the ball beyond Bernd Leno.

It was Mudryk’s first Premier League goal following his £88 million move from Shakhtar Donetsk in January. And within seconds, Chelsea had their second.

Tim Ream had a moment to forget as he gave the ball away to Cole Palmer. The young English playmaker then slipped Broja in, but Ream hit the ball off the Albanian striker as the ball trickled past Leno.

Fulham tried to find gaps behind Marc Cucurella and Axel Disasi on the right side of Chelsea’s defence, but it was not working. Chelsea controlled the game and held their two-goal going into the break.

In the second 45, Fulham came out with more attacking poise, and it helped that Mudryk went off with a knock, giving Fulham the impetus to come forward, but Chelsea’s defence stood resolute.

Vinicius and Alex Iwobi came on for Fulham and helped their side find spaces beyond Chelsea’s backline, but the Boys in Blue defended well and showed they were still dangerous.

Ian Maatsen, on for Mudryk, hit the post, and Leno had to be quick to smother Fernandez’s rebound effort. Fulham forced Chelsea to work for their lead, but Mauricio Pochettino’s men looked up to it.

Substitute Tom Cairney created a lovely chance for Sasa Lukic. However, Robert Sanchez stuck out a brilliant leg to save the effort and keep his side in it.

On 83, Willian tried an effort from outside the box, but it did not cause any problems for Sanchez as Chelsea ran out 2-0 victors

Man Utd winger Anthony in contention for Galatasaray UEFA champions league clash



Erik ten Hag has confirmed that Antony could feature for Manchester United against Galatasaray after rejoining his ranks at Old Trafford.

The Brazil international forward was granted indefinite leave by the Red Devils following a series of alarming allegations made against him by former girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin.

Antony has been back in his homeland since then, allowing him to meet with police forces in Sao Paulo.

He returned to England last week and has held five hours of talks with Greater Manchester Police.

The 23-year-old winger maintains his innocence – having also faced accusations from two other women.

United have allowed him to focus on off-field matters of late, but revealed ahead of a Premier League meeting with Crystal Palace that Antony had been given a green light to return to training and was once again available for selection.

He has only taken in one session since then, suggesting that he will be short on match fitness, but Ten Hag says the South American is in his thoughts ahead of the Champions League group stage meeting with Galatasaray on Tuesday.

The Dutch coach has said: “Antony will be in consideration but yesterday was his first time back in team training. We have a final training, then we’ll make a decision.”

Ten Hag added when delivering an update on Lisandro Martinez – with the World Cup-winning Argentine defender still struggling with a long-standing foot injury: “I can confirm, yeah. Licha Martinez will undergo surgery and the team news is Antony can probably return.”

Antony’s last appearance for United came in the club’s 3-1 defeat at Arsenal on September 3.

He was removed from the Brazil squad for the last round of international fixtures and has not registered a goal for club or country since April 16.
