My name is Lawal Olawale popularly known as Easy, my attention has been drawn to a news publication on Nigerian tribune dated Jul 29, 2022 where one arrested suspect Saheed Taiwo was reported to have confessed to been a member of the Black Axe Confraternity. And claimed to have been initiated into the group in 2018 by “Easy”. He was the leader and the Number 1 then.”

I wish to disclaim this baseless and unfounded claims. To set the records straight I’m not a member of BLACK AXE. I graduated from Mapoly in 2012/2013, and had since then been partnering with security agents in the aspect of curbing the menace of crime through information dissemination. In accordance with section 40 sub sec 1 of the Nigerian constitution i am a member of Neo Black Movement of Africa a registered Pan African Movement with the soul objective of ensuring equality and social justice for all, with track records of humanitarian services, and a registered member of the All Progressive Congress. Based on the fact that I’m a law abiding, peace loving and easy going citizen hence the nick name given to me Easy, even though am not unaware that their may be other people that also bear similar nick name “EASY”.


It is very unfortunate that some unscrupulous elements are hell bent on tarnishing my image with rumors basically to defame my character because of my perceived loyalty to security agents with the view of wiping off criminal elements in our beloved city, Abeokuta and Ogun state at large , hence the conspiracy theory against my person with the fake news and rumor.

I am appealing to the State service and other security agents to disregard the media report and continue to do the needful in apprehending criminal elements terrorizing Abeokuta. even as I remain committed to continuously partnering and disseminating informations that will be useful in curtailing the menace of cultists and criminal elements in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
