Now, Bankulli, still in response to Dbanj’s comment about him, in no holds barred Instagram post ripped into Dbanj and advised him against doing drugs.
“Doing Drugs will not help you but worsen your case (I heard about White powder) a shining prospect and you use your bad character to bloat all Away.
Hmmm It is never too late to go and seek truthfully the forgiveness and truth you seek look inward change your lifestyle stop lying to yourself that all is well but go back to the source so that all can be well with you.
You have done so much evil to many people that we both know of and today I speak for them all. (Dbanj Aka The Kokomaster alias kokomycine… *Drops mic)”

In a brutal show of shame and arbitrariness, Men of the Lagos State Task Force today assaulted a journalist, Mr Kasali Akinwale of The Source magazine, around Ikeja Along axis of Lagos State.
The operatives who were armed to the teeth were said to have carried out an early morning raid on Okada riders around the railway line Ikeja along area in a commando style and were indiscriminately chasing passers-by and pedestrians around the area.
In the ensuing melee, a fleeing okada rider was almost knocked to death by a bus. The journalist who witnessed the scene and cautioned the operatives was severely beaten, teargassed, had his clothes torn before been bundled into the waiting black Maria for daring to intervene.
Speaking on the phone, the brutalised journalist explained that, "They wanted to apprehend an okada man, as they were chasing him, he was almost knocked down by an oncoming bus.
I then approached the policemen that they should be careful, the next thing was they pounced on me, teargassed me and started beating me."
The journalist was later released upon intervention of the Task Force spokesman.

From the over 50,000 participants that took part in the first edition of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon, over 100,000 took part in the most recent edition that took place February 2019.
While reacting to the latest enviable feat achieved by the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon, Race Promoter, Olopade, said the feat would not have been possible without the backing of the Lagos State Government.
Olopade thanked the Lagos State Government for wholly believing in the noble idea and for offering full support financially, technically and in terms of security and logistics since inception.
The Race Promoter also expressed gratitude to the Headline Sponsor Access Bank an organization that open its doors and embraced the marathon , and partners like 7Up, Bet9Ja, Eko Atlantic, who have been supportive in the past years as well as to the likes of Kia Motors, Revolution Plus and others who have also joined the train to make the marathon the toast of the town.

On his part, the General manager for the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon, Alli, said the next target was to go for Gold and then the Platinum Label, which is the highest award by the global body.
Alli expresses confidence that the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon will be awarded a Gold Label after the 2020 edition, which he assured will be organised to meet and even surpass the required standards in terms of the number of elite athletes, equipment, road closure, security, media engagement and other requirements that must be satisfied to merit a Gold Label.
