If a mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world, which knows no laws, no pity, dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path, then this proverbial phrase underscores why City Architect, Teju Ajayi, and his darling siblings are putting in place a befitting 60th birthday bash for their adorable mom.

Come 18th of August 2019, the crème de la crème of the society and dignitaries from all walks of life will converge at the Balmoral Hall, Oregun, Ikeja, to celebrate Mrs Christianah Bosede Ajayi.

No expense is being spared as the enterprising and easy-going architect and his siblings have promised to give their loving mom a befitting birthday party that will be the talk of the town for a long time to come.

The event will be anchored by the famous comedian cum compere, Dr. Smile, while the rave of contemporary live music, SB Live, will be on the bandstand to serenade the guests.

Mrs Christianah Abosede Ajayi is blessed with four children; Teju, Gbemi, Damola and Dayo Ajayi.

Her son, popularly known as Teju OGA, among his cross-section of friends, is the CEO of The Architects Place Ltd, a Design and Construction firm based in Ikeja, Lagos.

A creative and hugely sought after architect, the debonair dandy’s imprints are on scores of beautiful buildings in Lagos and other parts of the country. He’s the brain behind the contemporary OldEnglish Supermarket building in Omole amongst others.

Indeed, the very sociable architect is gradually etching his name and work across Nigeria’s urban landscape & telecoms industry.

According to him, “The plan is to celebrate our dear mum in a grand style as a token of our appreciation for nurturing us all to successful professionals. For us, it is not a show-off, it is just to say thank you to her for her labour of love and to God for her beautiful life. It is the least we can do for the superwoman.”

More revelations have come to light about the activities of soldiers attached to Battalion 93, Takum, including how they allegedly shielded a drug dealer who was about to be arrested by the police.

Special Forces from the battalion were said to have also attacked the five policemen who went on an operation to arrest a narcotics dealer in Kwesati village, Ussa Local Government Area of Taraba State, last year.

The policemen who stormed the village to arrest one Endurance Mike for allegedly selling tramadol and other banned psychotropic drugs were allegedly beaten up by 10 soldiers attached to the Operation Whirlstroke.

A police report on the incident, obtained from police archives on Monday by Punch correspondents in Abuja, stated that the incident, which occurred on June 30, 2018, almost led to a violent confrontation between policemen and soldiers of Battalion 93.

The report, with reference number CK4161/AC/TK/TRS/VOL.1/2 dated July 7, was written by the Area Commander, Takum Area Command, ACP Ayuba Dickson, to the Commissioner of Police, state headquarters, Jalingo.

It explained that when the policemen got to Mike’s shop where he also sold medicines, they met a soldier who exchanged hot words with them on learning that they wanted to arrest the shop owner.

It said, “While the police team was still inside the shop, the unnamed soldier went out and mobilized more than 10 fellow soldiers who came on motorcycles and beat up the policemen, seized the confiscated drugs and set the suspect free. One of the men also seized and chewed the search warrant and swallowed it.

“The soldiers also forcefully seized two rifles from the police team and took them to their makeshift office.”

The report identified the injured policemen as the Divisional Crime Officer, Ussa Division, ASP Usman Madugu, Inspector Ishaku Garba, Sergeants Moses Ashoon and Punadanda Ahmadu and Cpl. Manasseh Alfred.
