Club owner, and probably one of the most hated men in Nigeria presently, Mike Eze Nwalie Nwogu popularly known as ‘Pretty Mike’ has obeyed the instruction of the Lagos State Government and Police Command to tender a public apology for putting two young girls on leash and parading them at social events.
The reaction from the general public last week was that of anger, disgust hate ,just to name a few, after the co-owner of Club Uno, Ikeja, Lagos attended a wedding ceremony with the same girls both leashed up like hounds.
Social media users were of the opinion, that the female folks were been dehumanized and paraded as slaves.
The Lagos State Government under the administration of Governor Ambode ordered his immediate arrest yesterday to curtail the act. While in custody, he cooperated with the police and signed an undertaking to put an end to the trend.
He also agreed to apologize to the general public which he did earlier today, 12th of January, 2017.
However, in a sudden twist of events,controversial journalist, Kemi Omololu Olunloyo,whose father,Victor Olunloyo is a former Governor of Oyo state, has blasted the Governor Ambode over the arrest.
“I have lost all respect for Governor Ambode of Lagos State and urge every Lagosian NEVER TO VOTE FOR HIM IN 2019. These politicians are so manipulative that they feel they can control we the masses and censor us.There is a freedom of speech and freedom of expression clause in the Nigerian constitution just like the US First amendment that I’m used to. @prettymikeclubuno displayed his freedom of expression by leashing his girls to his public events and appearances. The ladies NEVER complained. Did the governor have to order his arrest??
He did NOT dehumanize them. If there is such a law against dehumanization of citizens in the state, how come citizens are doused with petrol and killed after stealing in public? Gov Ambode, how come movie maker Seun Egbegbe was dehumanized at Computer Village after allegedly stealing iphones?
How come u allow vigilante justice in your state and have never addressed the police absence issue allowing citizens to freely dehumanize others. A club owner uses a foreign style seen on catwalks, MTV and award shows and u immediately order his arrest and ask him to sign a fake anti-constitutional document. IT IS SIMPLY UNFAIR, ABUSE OF POWER AND AGAINST THE LAW.I leashed my three children in the United States as they could dart into traffic and one kid once went missing for 4 hours in a mall as a toddler. With the rate of ritualistic gbomogbomo kid-nappers in Lagos and other states, parents will start leashing their young kids in crowded markets an old thing abroad.You forcefully want Lagos to be modern but still selective. Are u gonna start arresting parents too and seizing the kids? Did ur government disclose the investigation to the public? We journalists deserve to know what Mike’s ladies had to say. Mr Governor u acted like an illiterate. Ignorance does not EXCUSE STUPIDITY.”
Wow! I do not think we have heard the last of this issue, and yours sincerely would be here to keep you posted.
