Ishola Oyenusi vs. The People
We came across this photo in our archives today, and it seemed appropriate to share.
It was a picture taken in 1973 and it captures a dreaded armed robber, Ishola Oyenusi, popularly known as Dr. Oyenusi who terrorised Lagos in the early 1970s.
He was being led to the stakes at the Bar Beach, Victoria Island in the era when armed robbers caught and found guilty in accordance with the law were shot in the full glare of crowds.
In time like this, when the men of the underworld are terrorizing so many homes and communities and it seemed somehow that evil is winning – this picture is a testimony that GOOD will always triumph over evil; that our collective resolve as a nation of good people is by far stronger and potent enough to win in the battle to restore communal and national life that is free from thieves and terrorist.
