Finally, light has shone at the end of the tunnel of one time big money spender, Lekan Olofinjana as we gathered authoritatively that he has been released from his jailers.
Lekan Olofinjana, popularly known as Lekan Lokoso ruled the social firmament in the 80s through the early 90s before he was nabbed by the US Drug Enforcement Agency and was made a permanent tenant of the jailer.
Today, Lokoso who is now 56 years old can heave a sigh of relieve as he was released from the prison. Though his actual released date is 2017 March, but because the authorities felt he had learnt his lessons, he was released last month.
If the news is cheering enough, the fact that he was not allowed to stay in the US again where his child and wife were residents still leaves a hole in his heart. This is because Lokoso was promptly deported despite his pleas to stay in the country he once enjoyed full benefits.
His crime then we gathered was his romance with the devil’s dust. He made so much money from the illicit trade in drugs that he lived a life of flamboyance; he was also said to be very generous, hence, many musicians sang his praise to high heavens.
Lekan’s case was a celebrated one and at the end of the trial, the good-looking chap was slammed with 27 years in jail.
However, the question on many people lips is that will he be able to fit in into the Nigerian system again? What about his friends and associates, some of which have become top government officials; will they be ready to associate with him again, these are the QUESTIONS begging for answers.
