Lagos State Government Urges Calm, Warns Against Fresh Protests

LASG URGES LAGOSIANS TO REMAIN PEACEFUL The @followlasg has urged all Lagosians to shun any act that may threaten the peace of our dear state, which is battling to recover from the shock of the carnage unleashed by hoodlums who hid under the #EndSARS protests. Even as we are still counting our painful losses in lives and property, there are hints of a new protest. The police have warned that no protest will be tolerated.

It is clear that the original protests, despite their good intentions, have caused more havoc than they were planned to resolve. The Govern...

Mum has stolen our inheritance

Dear Bunmi, Our two remaining grandparents died last year within months of each other. It was heartbreaking at the time, but nothing compared to what had happened since then. With my mum being their only child, she inherited the entirety of their estate. My grand-dad wanted to leave each of his grandchildren —me and my siblings— a bit of money. We’re all aged between 19 and 32. But rather than put it in his Will, he told our mum in our presence to give it to us from her inheritance. Of course, she promised she would. Now that she’s got her hands on the money, she doesn’t want to give us our share. She says she needs it herself because she wants a house of her own instead of a rented apartment. She also wants to continue going on expensive holidays and drinking choice wine. I th...
