Temitope Sugar: His Rise And Fall
This story was shared by a childhood friend of Hon. sugar
Sugar was an average handsome guy when he gained an admission into FCE. He dropped out from one poly in Ibadan due to threats to his life.
He had this natural charms of likeness. Gentle and cool dude. Then he was an innocent guy. His trouble started when he was aspiring for the Sug post. He was bursted like 3 times before withdrawing from the elections.
George scar face, Alfa, Gideon and his friends were the reigning Champion in Camp/Osiele axis.. Asa and his crew controlled Obantoko side.
After the Sug elections, he wanted revenge and power by all means. He met with his friends on how to achieved that and they decided to join OPC. The founding members then were Sugar, Hans, Afisu, Baba Imole, Wale from Yewa.
Initially his aggression was about hunting those who hunted him ( Cults) but then he started getting supports from the indigenes cos they were all tired of the cultist activities.. You don't wanna come across George scar face, whether broad day or night.
After 2 years of reigning, Students had an encountered with the indigenes( during masquerade festivals). Sugar led the war against the indigenes he perceived as an enemy ( First terrible mistakes). He won the war but at the same time lost the supports from the indigenes.
One way or the other, he got in contacts with the then Ogun governor, Ogd ..He was appointed as a supervisory councillor in Odeda local government before being appointed as a special adviser at the state level in Ogun ( Ogd killer squads) in collaboration with Ologbowon, Ozogula, Bukky Boy and co.
Later he got into trouble with some cultists ( Politically), He dropped Bukky boy, Ay and others..
Students, Indigenes and cultists were fed up with his atrocities, they renegated against him and he was bursted, lucky for him, he escaped. He relocated to Ibadan for 1 year or so before staging come back ( Influence of money).
He continued with his atrocities as he was too powerful to to be confronted . After years of terrors, he relocated back to Ibadan . He contested for state assembly in 2011 and won. In 2015, he contested for House of reps representing Lagelu/Akinyele and also won.
His recent trouble started when he lost Apc senatorial primary under Apc. He decamped to ADP to further his ambitions.
Sugar was one of the major factors of Ajimobi current political irrelevance in Oyo state ( More like a finger that fed you cos he Sugar was instrumental to Ajimobi governorship 2011-2018). He knows too much, he reigned too much, probably aspiring for Oyo governorship in 2023. Even though stories of how he was shot are still sketchy, but they all have one thing in common, he was shot in the face. So Sugar could be shot, bullet could be penetrated, and he couldn't disappeared.. Hmmmmm .. I have seen him in life actions with just irukere on his hand. His message to the guy shooting at him, your bullet will soon finish ( Life and real).
Indeed in life, karma is a bitch. I may see him as a big brother ( Saved and helped me several times) but never supported his thuggery life. Without politics or thuggery, Sugar was supposed to be naturally successful cos he was a smart guy and a very good leader.
Happy or Sad? I am undecided.. May be a revenged for an innocent school mates ( Ojuoluwa). The guy was butchered from head to toe including his pe.nis because of my sins ( An article written by me then advising him, Sugar to take things slowly but the poor innocent guy was mistaken as the writer . Sygar was a good man but at the same time , deadly to the community. A big lesson to the youths. Nothing last forever( even grace of God if not well managed, it will fade as well ( as we can see). If you live by the swords, you die by the swords , Rip Sugar! 1973-2019
