Charly Boy ‘speaks’ with late dad about state of Nigerian judiciary

17 October 2016, 11:20

Lagos - Popular Nigerian entertainer, Charly Boy, has lent his voice to the recent clampdown on the Nigerian judiciary by the State Security Service, Premium Times reports.

The controversial singer aired his views in a series of instagram posts today.

In a lengthy post, he claimed he spoke with his dead father, Hon. Justice Chukwudifu Akune Oputa, some nights ago, through two virgins.

His posts partly read, “A couple of nights ago, I had a séance (talking with the dead) with my two Virgins. I had to talk to the incorruptible; The Lord Denin/Socrates of the Supreme Court, the one who taught me humility, contentment and the fact that wealth does not guarantee happiness for it is impermanent.

Speaking further, he added, “My dear departed father, Hon. Justice Chukwudifu Akune Oputa, whom I know is cringing in his grave because of what the judiciary/Nigeria has finally turned into. I remember some 30 years back when we used to have heated arguments about the future of Nigeria, the apparent injustices and inequalities, as he tried to teach me all the code of practice or way of life that leads to true happiness.

“I told him, but he never believed it could get this bad. This was the third time I was speaking with my late father, friend and teacher through my spiritual guides and virgins.”

A few hours after he put up the post, the 65-year-old singer went a step further by posting the images of President Muhammadu Buhari and that of late ex-leaders, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, and Sani Abacha.

He then wrote, “ Guys tell me what these men have in common? Let’s see if you can figure it out.”

Seven judges were arrested between last week Friday night and Saturday morning in raids for alleged corrupt practices according to News24.
