Àwon Oníyèyé! By Odolaye Aremu

[Analyses]–There comes a time in a man’s life when he MUST make a hallmark-type decision. A make or mar type! Not the type of scenario that confronted me weeks ago at Orita-Meta, when and where I was tortuously confronted with the -Àkàrà elépo, Jógí and Òòlè meal choices. 

Well, another load of loot was reportedly discovered somewhere in Lagos, yesterday. So what’s the point, or the good sense in handing the money over to the Govt for prosecution? A prosecution that’s highly likely to go moribund? An investigation with a high probability course, destined to end shambolically!

Guys, split the dough amongst yourselves and keep your shares in individual escrow accounts! And whenever the Govt is sane enough to guarantee a standard prosecution leading to conviction, or at least an attempt at a compelling, convincingly, judicious investigation then return the money. And if it happens to be a profit yielding bond, the interest accrued ought to be tantalizing enough as some kind of finder’s fee for your troubles! 

I am damn sick and tired of these dizzy-dancing, ferris-wheel, jangirófà-epo-mótò, olóbìrípo, nowhere-in-sight, kinda investigations!

***By the way, and FYI: if you are the ambitious type; forget about escrow accounts, forget about investigation, forget about your miserable life just a day before the discovery, take your damn share and head for the damn border!***
