Nigerian Publisher, Toyin Akinosho, flees Nigeria after escaping assassination

Toyin Akinosho

The Publisher of Africa Oil and Gas Report, a magazine focusing on the petroleum sector, Toyin Akinosho, has fled Nigeria, following threats to his life, supposedly on account of scathing revelations about the corruption in the industry published by his magazine.

Mr. Akinosho fled the country and went into hiding following the March 20 multiple attacks on his car and driver by unknown men who kept asking for the publisher’s whereabouts.

Mr. Akinosho, a trained geologist and one of Nigeria’s most respected oil and gas journalists, started the magazine after working for several years in Chevron “with a view to enabling the general public and industry watchers get a clearer view and understanding of the practice in the oil and gas industry”.

The journalist now believe the hard-hitting reporting of his magazine has now made him prime targets of deadly attacks.

On March 20, five suspected assassins waylaid Mr. Akinosho’s driver while driving his boss’ car in the Ikoyi area of Lagos.

Mr. Akinosho had flown to Abuja earlier that evening, PREMIUM TIMES learnt.

“As I came out from our street to enter the main road, I saw a white Hilux (mini truck) following me,” Yinusa, Mr. Akinosho’s driver, said. “I wanted to branch into another road but because they were still following me, I decided to go straight. But they still followed me. At 41 Road, there is a junction that you can branch from, to Ikoyi or to the (exit) gate.

“It was at that spot that they blocked me with their car and stopped me. They came down and were asking me ‘Where is Toyin Akinosho?’ and I told them that I don’t know who Toyin Akinosho is; that I have never heard that name in my life before. I also told them that (the) publisher’s car is my personal car and that the name Toyin Akinosho does not ring a bell. It was at that point that they returned into their vehicle and drove off.”

He continued, “They entered their car and I kept moving because I thought it would be unwise for me to go back home right away. As they moved, they were moving slowly and then later turned to the roundabout that leads to Ikoyi; but I went straight to gate. But as I looked into my side mirror, I saw that they were still following me and I thought to myself that if I went home, they might still trace me to the house to know where we were staying. So, I went straight and bent towards Four Points (By Sheraton Lagos hotel) area. The car has an e-tag (pre-paid toll identification) so I just passed the toll gate but it was like they paid and were delayed a bit. But the traffic light stopped me; it wasn’t up to one minute that I was at the traffic light that I saw that they were coming but then, the light passed me so I drove off. I passed in front of Four Points and followed Ajose Adeogun Street. On that street, there is a club that Oga goes to. It was there that they caught up with me and rammed my car by the side and I ran into a culvert and the bumper was damaged.”

What happened next?

“Then, one of them came out of the car and slapped me on my face and said, ‘We are asking you for the last time, where is Toyin Akinosho?’ I told him that I don’t know the person who bears that name. On hearing that, another one said to me: ‘I can waste you o’ but I told him that if he wanted to kill me, he should do so, but I insisted I neither knew Akinosho nor ever heard of his name. Then they left me there and entered their vehicle and left. People that were around there started coming out to assist me drag the car off the culvert.”

Mr. Yinusa, who decided to sleep in the car, apparently to prevent being traced to his boss’ house, after he had encountered the suspected assassins for the second time on Ajose Adeogun Street, added:

“As I was sleeping in the car, around 2am, they came to meet me and used the edge (barrel) of a gun to wake me up. They then collected my phone
and the N7,000 that I had on me and left saying that since I did not want to say the truth, they would go with those.”

The driver added, “It was like they went to check the (Contacts on my phone) whether they would see Oga’s name on my phone but I saved Oga’s number with the name ‘MAE’”

Asked what ‘MAE’ means, Yinusa said “Nothing,” adding, “I just saved it as such because to spell his name, Toyin Akinosho Alfred, is difficult for me.”

The suspected assassins returned around 5a.m. to return Mumuni’s phone.

Following the incident, Mr. Akinosho reported the case at a police station on Lagos Island before fleeing Nigeria, following the advise of friends, associates and family members.

A copy of his petition was also sent to the Inspector General of Police in Abuja as well as the headquarters of the State Security Service.

After spending weeks in hiding, the publisher now wishes to return home safely, his solicitors, Omisore and Co., said in the petition to the Director-General of the SSS, Ita Ekpeyong.

As a result of the incident “our client.for fear of his safety (Toyin Akinosho) ) has not returned to his home as there is likelihood the armed individuals may come back for him to finish whatever terrible act they intended to carry out the day they met and assaulted Mr. Yinusa (his driver),” the solicitors wrote in the petition.

For the weeks that he has been away, the lawyers said, Mr. Akinosho’s business had severely suffered. He therefore sought security protection and the guarantee of his constitutional right to life.

“It goes without saying that assassinations have become rampant and these series of events have necessitated writing of this petition on behalf of our client in order to forestall further criminal actions by those unknown individuals and to prevent harm from being done to our client’s life,” the petition said.

  • Proud Yoruba

    Stop being victims, use tools that you have, that driver should have recorded those thugs on his phone without them knowing, he should have taken a picture of the van following him with the license plate and the thug’s faces.

    The master should not have just gone abroad, while he was there he should have bought surveillance equipment to put in his car and home, he should have bought some hardware to protect himself. All he has to do is go on the web and find out how to buy body cameras and car cameras and other things to protect himself. Most importantly, get a video of the thugs and hand it to the police and press.

    • Jaja2015

      This is a very silly comment. How do you think the deadly assasins would have reacted if the driver just pulled out his phone and started recording them? Think before your write. Do you think its easy to just record something, when you’re not even sure you’ll be alive for the next 1 hour?

      • Proud Yoruba

        Okay big shot, what is your suggestion now? Easy to criticize!

        • Proud Yoruba

          The suggestion wAs for him to record them surreptitiously, he had about 7 hours or so, plenty of opportunities to take pics when the goons are retreating.

            em, excuse me, your suggestion please, Mr. I have seen a gun before, I pointed it at myself!

          • akyn

            You are so very smart indeed. Pointing a gun at yourself is like trying to choke yourself. Better still why should I waste much time with a fellow like you. Pointing a gun at yourself also means you are are off the hinge. Next time pull the trigger and we will all be happy

            you are obviously ibo, because you have nothing to contribute, you just want to abuse and talk in the devil’s language.

    • Wähala

      C’mon shut-up dia!
      If they harassed his driver does that mean he has to bolt from the country leaving his mother, father, wife and children behind? Na so una go toss Ndigbo into the lagoon be dat? Cowards! The clown could have gotten police protection that’s what the cops are there for, instead of bolting without his agbada ati fila. When he was writing rubbish didn’t he think of reprisal attacks? Let me tell you straight up, there’s no hiding place for the guilty. If he knows what he wrote was the truth, his God will certainly protect him from all dangers. Fact is, it’s in your nature to bolt at the pop of a balloon. And, that’s why I told you even if every Igbo is killed elsewhere, none of your ilk can raise a finger in front of onye-igbo… the offending clown will definitely lose some front teeth. Akiolu escaped out of deference to his palace. Let him dare go to Ladipo Mkt and try his shit next time and see if he doesn’t abdicate that yeye throne of his… Cowards!

      • Proud Yoruba

        You are advocating violence, right? He who lives by the gun, shall…..you know the rest. If what he wrote about the oil and gas industry is not favorable to the “untouchables”, then they should go to court and sue for libel, absolutely no one is allowed to take the law into their own hands by hiring goons to intimidate a driver.

        The article is silent about who he fled with, so we don’t know if his mother, wife, and children went with him. A Yoruba man will certainly put his family first!

        You insist on bringing our Oba into everything that he is not involved with just to cause offense to Yorubas and provoke us to violence. Our Oba is sacrosanct, your insults just boomerang back to you and your ezes. But, you who is not a coward, keep looking over your shoulder because an Oba’s curse does not come back empty! If you are smart, you shut your pie hole about our Oba.

        How do you know so much about this operation that is not in the public domain? Is it your friends behind this? They better watch themselves because karma is a B****H!!!

      • Onike24

        @ wahala, Biko stop insulting the Oba! Haba! E don do!

    • Nwa _ Africa

      Do you know the reason the driver did not drive to the police station, 1st time, 2nd time and slept in his car for them to visit him 2 times again in the night? He must be Jack Braun or Jackie Chan……….

  • Ken

    The price for trying to expose deziani and her boys.

    • akyn

      Did your father complement your mother after the under the cover activities? Or it is just bang bang and sleep?

  • Northerner

    Buy a bullet proof car and just shut up!
    The government can’t do anything!

  • Wähala

    Hahahahahahahaa chai!
    Where is that @Proud Yoruba tout to come mouth off at Höly Wähala? Na so una go take chase Igbo people comot for Oba Akiolu’s Kingdom, ba? By bolting because of tailgating? Na only his driver dem accost and the clown flees Nigeria just like his ancestors, Gen. Ogundipe after the coup; Prof. Wole Soyinka after June 12; Bayo Oluwasanmi after Dele Giwa… and of course, the Oba of Ilorin is still AWOL from his kingdom after the Fulani invasion of over 100yrs ago. Hahaha tufiakwa..Lol! Cowards die many deaths indeed. Running from Diezani Madueke is another low in cowardice biko, Akinosho is a career coward and a mega clown. May Satan purge his fingers if he types any further disparaging reports on Lady Diezie. The oloshi for stand and fight with a woman so we can see who gets knocked-out. Oponu!

    • Proud Yoruba

      So you know that diezani is behind it?

      Everybody prays to God, you pray to Satan, very revealing devils spawn.

      • Wähala

        Hahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahhahahaha…. If na’ram nko? She’s just my suspect. Bottom line, Toyin fled from a fellow woman. Se bi ‘Toyin’ na woman name for Egba land? Why did he run instead of stand and fight like a man? Coward.

        • Proud Yoruba

          Too many hahas, Abi you don craze?

          He did not run from diezani, he ran from assassins, who will run from a coward like diezani, who can’t face her own enemies, but hires thugs instead.

          You just want to be Yoruba by force, Toyin is a Yoruba name, not an Egba name, it is Oluwatoyin, meaning God is worth praising. Beautiful Yoruba name, unlike ibo names.

    • Truthwillprevail

      And as your grand daddy fled during the 1966 coup that he knew about and feigned medical check up. Common!

      • Wähala

        The Oba of Ilorin is not my grand-daddy biko, me na proper Igbo man with red cap… not kabiyesi fila. Lol!

    So all this happened in 2015? Really feel for the driver if this story is true. It’s sad that he didnt feel he could seek safety at any police station for the night. Cant blame him though, a lot of things need setting right in nigeria.

These are a group of noise makers who flee when a swam of bee flies overhead, they run thinking it is a fighter-bomber. The war will be easy for us because there will be none left to defend their land, they will flee en mass. Awon omo Odua why are you proud, where is your strength?

    If our people were not peace-loving Christians we would have invaded and chased all of them out of continent Nigeria.

    • Proud Yoruba

      You should try it, try invading Yorubaland please and see what will happen! Do you think everyone in Yoruba land is a thug? We actually do have a lot of thinkers you know, they don’t use their brawn, they use their brains, a lot more than can be said for gra gra people!

      • AntiGay Militant

        Who are “gra gra people”?

        • Proud Yoruba

          Who else but ibos? Do you not see how aggressive they are?

          What have gays done to you militant?

          • AntiGay Militant

            No, the Igbos are not aggressive. Gays have not done anything to me, except that I think that kids should not be taught how normal it is to crave for another man’s private parts.

          • Proud Yoruba

            Ibo parasites stole your mandate from your kinsman Jona, and you are still defending them! All the good meant for Ijaws went to ibo parasites, while Jona basically neglected his own people. Don’t be fooled by ibos, they are common thieves and only care for themselves only.

            No need to be anti gay, They were born that way. I don’t approve of their lifestyle, but I treat them with dignity and human rights. I suggest you do too.

          • AntiGay Militant

            This is another reason I prefer the Ibos to Yorubas. Yoruba people have been brainwashed by my fellow white people to like the idea of a man being attracted to another man’s private parts. I suspect you are gay yourself. No, they are NOT born that way.
            British people built Lagos and other Nigerian cities, yet Yoruba people take pride for the accomplishment and look down upon the Ibo people. Take a look at the things whites built – they are still that way today. Most WC toilets that needed to be repaired when we were still in Nigeria are still like that today! Yoruba people should be ashamed of that. Yorubas and Hausas should either respect the Ibos as their fellow countrymen, or give them their well-deserved independence.

          • Proud Yoruba

            No mr. Militant, you read me wrong, I am not gay. Maybe one day I’ll reveal more about myself and then you’ll know for certain that I am not gay! We have not been brainwashed by oyinbos either, the illustrious Yoruba empire was more civilized than oyinbos, they learn from us, not the other way around.

            You don’t know ibos yet, soon you will, and you’ll know what I’m talking about. Independence doesn’t work like that, it is not up to us. You must do it the right way to make it successful. I am happy for any one not happy to go!

            So tell me where are you from, are you ijaw militant? How do you become a militant and what have you done to fight your own country?

          • AntiGay Militant

            I’m a British American. The point I’m trying to make is that Yoruba people should always remember that the Southwestern Nigerian cities were built by nobody except British people. When we were in Africa, the Yorubas had no capacity and intelligence of building any city.
            But almost all towns and cities in Southeastern Nigeria were built by the Ibos without any foreign assistance or guidelines. However, due to the divide-and-conquer method used by the British, the Ibos were turned against each other, and couldn’t properly govern themselves anymore. This is affecting them today, and making many of them try to flee to a place with less fights-for-power.
            So, you should take note that the only reason Ibos are rushing to the Southwest is for the British accomplishments, not Yoruba accomplishments. Ibos have full rights to those cities, as those cities were built using natural resources from the Southeast.
            Thus, the Yorubas should pay due respect to the Ibos who have been cheated for generations, because this time around, there are many powerful nations that will support the Ibos in case of any other civil war resulting from Ibos’ bid to form their own country.
            From our perspective, it’s only time before the Ibos rebel against inside threats from the Yorubas and Hausas who use terror tactics like Boko Haram and others to intimidate the Ibos.
            The “Militant” in my nickname is just a figure of speech or metaphor. I have an Ibo friend here in the United States Navy and he is a hard worker and very smart.

          • Proud Yoruba

            You are as confused about your identity as you are about your Nigerian history. British did not build the SW cities, go and learn Yoruba history, our empire was as far west as Burkina Faso. Even if the British built anything, they left officially since 1960, you think we are still living in their structures?

            Ibos have no right to our region. The only place that they have right to is the SE and their state of origin. It is in the constitution. If they come to the West, they are guests and can only stay as long as we want them, so we prefer that they stay in their SE because they are not peaceful people.

            They do not have any resources, the oil belongs to the entire country. When we in the SW fed the whole country with our cocoa farming, it was done from toiling the ground and hard work. The SE lay claim to something that God put there and they never labored for? Can you tell me when the ibos made the oil in their region? It is a gift from God to the nation that nobody toiled for. As far as our constitution, the oil is our commonwealth and belongs to all. We pay a thirteen percent derivation to compensate for the degradation of the land and the,t is fair.

            Ibos cannot blame Yorubas for not successfully seceding before, if they had gone about it the right way, they may have succeeded. But you can’t take territory that does not belong to you and say you are seceding, it doesn’t work that way. The ibos are land locked, their territory is not the SS and they can’t lay claim to it

          • AntiGay Militant

            Your so-called “empire” did not build any cities. There were only mud huts and mud houses before the British arrived in SW Nigeria. And yes, you still live in the structures we built before we left! Some of the structures were almost falling apart, and the toilets were no longer functioning properly and needed to be flushed manually before we left. Those things are still like that there today!
            The big houses we built are still tightly occupied and look very dirty due to lack of proper maintenance.
            Of course the Ibos are landlocked; there are many successful landlocked countries in Europe and around the world. The Ibos are also no longer interested in oil, as the oil market value is gradually failing.
            I am not confused about my identity; my father’s lineage is British, while my mother’s lineage is American, hence why I call myself a British American since I was born in the United States to parents one of whom is British.

    • share Idea

      How many times have you heard of this magazine before now. 1000 snipers are been trained by this government to kill political enemies yet none has been killed. father Mbaka said GEJ men were after him because of his revelation about him, again nothing happened. PT can you guys focus on what the new government will do to Nigeria and stop heating up the polity. With all PT allegations against GEJ government and his top ministers, none of you guys have been threatened and this unknown supposed oil correspondent editor is now been trialled by assassins.

  • Uncle Gaga (Bruce Wayne)

    For those of us who don’t know, what ‘scathing revelations’ about the oil sector did Akinosho publish in his magazine?
    You cant just be shouting ‘revelation’ ;revelation’ without revealing anything.
    Post a link to an article or something tangible.
    That way, you will create several thousand ‘Akinosho’s’ and it will be pointless to go after any particular one.
    DO this or be quiet.

    Who knows, may Akinosho’s driver’s gambling problem caused him to loose the funds and phone on a bad bet and he is now trying to discharge the loss as due to armed robbery and attempted assassination.
    Or…maybe Akinosho’s magazine is not doing too well and he feels a sensational story might just be what the doctor prescribed.

    Please, stop broadcasting stories without head or tail. Get your writers to do their research. You owe your readers at least that much!

  • SAM .A

    Toyin Akinosho flee is not unprecedented , in a country where those who are paid to protect are also criminals renting out their gun , & supply information about u , including ur address. . Running from imminent assassination is not cowardice , what will the antagonist do otherwise ? A dead man cannot defend himself . He who runs under this circumstances , will live to fight another day .After June 1st Toyin will be the winner. The whole Nigerian will be eager to hear his story , the goon master & their goons will be on the run , but the long arm of the law will catch them up.
    People here must stop reading tribalism into every issue. You will be deceiving yourself if you think Yorubas are cowards. If and whenever there is trouble in Lagos , who are the people on the run.?
    Late Adekunle will inform u Yorubas are not coward. Thuggery & violence does not paid body.

    The man is a liar—————how could this Yoruba man have allowed his cousin to go and sleep in the very vehicle that the alleged hired assassins attempted to destroy—————? He claims to be a journalist so let him tell us the story that angered———————-the people in the oil industry————–aware oil is not part of the resources of the yoruba traitors–when Awo was in power–it was cocoa–and we never troubled the Yoruba people or begged to tar our roads for us

        Do you know the reason the driver did not drive to the police station, 1st time, 2nd time and slept in his car for them to visit him 2 times again in the night? He must be Jack Braun or Jackie Chan…….

    • New Nigerian

      Now you blaspheme…

  • New Nigerian

    Toyin, we love you – Please stay away until Buhari is sworn in. Do your best to run things by proxy and remotely for the next two months. Upon the swearing in of GMB, re-visit your petition for guarantee of personal safety. May God protect you and shame evil doers.

    Hired assassins came back at 5am to return Mumuni’s phone??? Now who does such a thing? Really very strange, since when did paid assassins become good Samaritans? What if Yinusa had called the police before then? Why would Yinusa decide to sleep in the car instead of rushing off to the nearest police station? Sleeping in the car would have clearly exposed him to all sorts of risks. If armed robbers or hired assassins were chasing me, I would never be a respecter of traffic lights, I would drive as fast as that damned car could go. I smell fish. This story reminds me of a near identical cock and bull story my driver told when he bashed our car in. “It was armed robbers Madam, they almost killed me o!”
