Security File with Enani Benson
MY WIFE HAS UNUSUAL SEXUAL URGE, HUSBAND TELLS COURT
*He is lying, he follows anything is skirt, says wife
A 42 year-old factory worker, Kola Babarinde, has asked an Igando Customary Court in Lagos State to dissolve his 11 year-old marriage to his wife Kudirat, alleging that his wife is never satisfied with sex.
Babarinde had approached the court to seek the dissolution of marriage over allegation of infidelity and threat to life by his wife.
The petitioner, who resides at Akindele Street, Egan, a suburb of Lagos State, told the court his wife has taken to adultery and has an extremely high libido.
Babarinde told the court: “My wife is never satisfied in bed; she asks for more even when we have gone two rounds. She behaves more like a man than a woman and because of this she goes out at will and comes home late at night. I have never enjoyed my union with her.
“She left me for six months and before she came back, I had taken another wife to take care of the two children she left for me”.
Babarinde further alleged that Kudiratu threatened to pour acid on the new wife if she refused to leave the house for her.
“I cannot accept Kudiratu back because she has done a lot of damages to my life. I want the court to dissolve the union and grant me custody of my children”.
36 year-old Kudiratu denied all the allegations, saying her husband was lying just to get ride of her.
Kudiratu, a trader, however, stated that since her husband did not want her again, she was also ready for divorce.
She said further: “My husband married another wife, while I was sick and was taken out of Lagos for treatment.
“He goes after anything in skirt and he’s always drunk whenever he comes back from work. He came here to lie against me just because he does not want me again.
“I met him when he was wearing rags and now that he thinks he has something, he is now tired of me”.
The President of the court, Adenike Johnson, urged the couple to maintain peace in the meantime while she adjourned the case for judgment.
LAGOS CP BANS SIRENS, REVOLVING LIGHTS, TINTED GLASSES
The Lagos State Police Commissioner Umar Manko has placed a ban on the use of siren, revolving lights and tinted glasses by unauthorized motorists in the state.
Despite the official ban on indiscriminate use of siren, revolving lights and tinted glasses the order has been flouted repeatedly by unauthorized persons, including influential Nigerians in the state.
The CP, who announced the ban recently in one of his weekly briefings to top officers in his command, directed all area commanders and Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) to clamp down on motorists using sirens, revolving lights and tinted glasses on the highways in breach of the order.
According to a police source, Manko emphasized that no form of approval would be entertained from any motorist.
Manko was quoted as saying, “It is in the light of the foregoing that it has become very essential to put a stop to the use of sirens, revolving lights and tinted glasses, which are now been used to commit different forms of crimes. Furthermore they are also deployed as easy forms of escape by criminals after committing crimes in order to escape arrest and prosecution”
He appealed to all road users to ensure compliance with the order, stressing that the ban “has become inevitable in order to enhance the capacity of Nigeria police in Lagos State to prevent crime and easily detect crime upon commission”.
MILLITARY AIDING BOKO HARAM, SAYS SECURITY EXPERT
An Abuja security expert, Otunba Akintunde Opeodu, has accused the military and other security operatives of complicity in the activities of the Boko Haram sect in the North-eastern part of the country.
Opeodu said the activities of the insurgents were being bolstered by cooperation and support from within the military and security circles.
The security expert urged the government to conduct an in-house investigation of its security agents and boost the morale of the troops deployed to fight the insurgents if it is determined to win the war on terror.
He asked the military to constantly update Nigerians on efforts to rescue the abducted female students of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok to reduce fear and concern of the parents.
The military authorities should as a matter of urgent duty, keep the nation abreast of efforts being made to rescue the kidnapped students in order to reduce the fears and concern of parents, relations and the entire citizenry.
The security agencies should also avail themselves of the intelligence being provided by the community on the alleged movement of the abducted students across the borders and seek support and cooperation of the country’s neighbours to track down the abductors.
“It is strongly believed that without the support and cooperation from within the military and security circles, the insurgents would not have been succeeding so easily in their dastardly acts,” he said.

LAGOS OBA URGES FG TO INCORPORATE VIGILANTE GROUPS, TASK FORCES INTO NATION’S SECURITY SYSTEM
As the country faces increasing security challenges in recent times, the traditional ruler of Isolo Kingdom in Lagos State, Oba Kabiru Alani Agbabiaka, has called on the Federal Government and the National Assembly to include task forces and vigilante groups among security agencies in the country engaged in tackling security challenges in the country.
Oba Agbabiaka said the current security situation in the country should not be left only for the government and other security agencies to handle.
He called for collaborative efforts of residents of all communities in the country.
He also called on traditional rulers and other stakeholders in the country to lend their voices to the quick approval of the two security outfits as part of the nation’s security system.
According to the traditional ruler, security agencies in the country like the police, army, customs and immigration lack enough manpower and modern equipment to fight crimes in Nigeria, noting that there was a need for the government to encourage police-community partnership.
Oba Agbabiaka said: “In Nigeria today, you have around 200 police officers to a community of 150,000 people. And a majority of these policemen are being attached to influential individuals and other private offices.
“A situation whereby two to three large communities do not have a police post is unacceptable. Security should be within reach for every community, you don’t have to walk for miles to get help from law enforcement agencies,” he said.
The respected royal father also identified the illegal importation of arms and ammunition into the country as one of the security problems facing the nation.
He said security operatives should man all entry points in the country to ward off insurgents.
