Egypt: 531 Morsi Supporters Sentenced To Death


Morsiprison

An Egyptian court has sentenced two people to death for throwing people off a roof during violence in Alexandria last year, the country’s state news agency said.

The court handed down the sentences to two supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi on Saturday, according to AFP news agency, adding to the 529 people sentenced to death last week for their alleged involvement in violence that has swept the country since July, when the army overthrew Morsi.

One of the two people thrown from the building in Alexandria was killed.

The court submitted its verdict for approval to the mufti.

Amateur video posted on social network sites at the time showed men throwing two youths from the building.

It showed four young men on the rooftop who are followed by several older men, one of them bearded and holding a flag.

The men are seen throwing stones at the youths and later one is thrown from the roof.

The video goes on to show club-wielding men beating the youth’s body. Another man is later thrown from the roof and survives but is injured.

The incident is said to have taken place in the coastal city on July 5, during protests calling for Morsi’s reinstatement. The sentenced men were among 63 people on trial for violence in the Sidi Gaber neighbourhood. Verdicts for the remaining defendants are expected in May.

Last week’s mass sentencing of 529 people provoked outrage and condemnation from human rights groups, the US and the European Union.

An additional 700 Brotherhood supporters, including Mohamed Badie, the supreme guide of the movement, were also due in court last week but their trial was adjourned until April 28.

ECOWAS Condemns Boko Haram Attacks In Nigeria


ecowas

President of Cote D’Voire and outgoing chairman of ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government, Alassane Outtara Friday condemned the violent activities of terror group, Boko Haram in North-east of Nigeria.

Outtara spoke at the opening ceremony of the meeting of Heads of States and Governments of West Africa, under the aegis of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in Yamoussoukro, Cote D’ Voire.

In his opening address, Ivorian President and outgoing chairman of ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government, Alassane Outtara, condemned the Boko Haram insurgency troubling the north eastern part of Nigeria.

Outtara called for cooperation among the countries in the sub region, adding that sister nations can no longer afford to keep quiet because the insurgency affects Nigeria alone.

He spoke extensively on what his administration was doing to take Cote d’ Ivoire to the next level.

Ouattara said it has become imperative for the formation of common ECOWAS tariff, as well as opening up of more business opportunities and infrastructural development among member nations.

He gave kudos to Nigeria, Senegal, Ghana and others for their contribution in the restoration of peace in Guinea Bissau and Mali. President Goodluck Jonathan bagged a medal titled “Son of Excellence” for this.

Teen Arrested For Spending $25,000 Accidentally Deposited into His Account


9674704

Authorities say a Georgia teen is under arrest and accused of spending about $25,000 that a bank accidentally deposited into his account.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Department says 18-year-old Steven Fields of Hull in northeastern, Ga., turned himself in Friday.

He faces a charge of theft by taking. A home phone number for Fields could not be located, and it was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney.

The department says a teller at a bank in Hull inadvertently deposited a check for approximately $31,000 into the wrong account. Authorities say the money was spent on purchases at a car dealership, various stores and a fast-food restaurant.

Authorities say there was an effort to come to an agreement between Fields and the bank and that Fields said he couldn’t repay the money.

I Ran to School Him: Mourinho Explains His Chit Chat With Palace Ball Boy


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he ran to a ball boy in injury-time of his side’s 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace to forestall any likely show of temperament on his player’s part, after the youngster did not release the ball to Cesar Azpilicueta quickly.

Midfielder Eden Hazard was sent off in a game at Swansea last season when he tried to kick a ball away from underneath a ball boy who had fallen on top of it.

“It is not right to educate kids to do that,” said Mourinho. “I went to stop Azpy [Azpilicueta].

Mourinho Says:" I told the boy to not do that."

“I was afraid he would lose control of his emotions and push the kid or do something like Eden [Hazard] did last year at Swansea. I told the boy to not do that.”

The Portuguese tactician however admits the Blues have their selves to blame after suffering another setback in their Premier League title challenge.

John Terry Scores An Own Goal at Selhaust Park.

John Terry’s 52nd minute own goal from Joel Ward’s teasing cross helped The Eagles move out of the relegation zone – after Cardiff City’s 3-3 draw with West Bromwich Albion- as Chelsea now remain one point clear of Liverpool and three clear of Manchester City, who will move top with a win over Arsenal in Saturday’s late kick-off.

“Now we have lost our chance of finishing first. Now we depend too much on other results,” Mourinho added.

“Crystal Palace deserved the victory, they fought for their lives. We had good chances and their goalkeeper made some good saves in the first half.

“But their spirit was stronger, their desire was stronger and their commitment was stronger. That disappoints me, but it’s a defeat that we can only blame ourselves for.

“Some of our players are not comfortable in these types of matches, like Stoke away, Newcastle away and Everton away.

“Can I change this? I don’t know. My defenders are phenomenal, but in other positions we have players that can be in trouble.”

Odemwingie Thrilled On Scoring Stoke Matchwinner


Peter Osaze Odemwingie has expressed satisfaction with he and his teammates’ performance in Stoke City’s 1-0 over Hull City on Saturday.

The Nigeria international’s fourth successive goal in three successive Barclay’s Premier League matches helped Stoke City claim a fourth league win in five outings.

“I am very pleased, maybe not with the performance but we dug deep. We didn’t create enough in the first half but we knew we had to be committed today,” The 32-year-old forward said after the match.

Odemwingie Scores His Sixth Barclays Premier League Goal Against Hull City.

Odemwingie broke the deadlock two minutes after the hour mark, when he raced straight through the away team half to thump in a low shot
after Hull’s Ahmed Elmohamady sloppily conceded possession to him.

He has now scored five times since joining the Potters from Cardiff City in January.

“I am enjoying my football here and my team-mates are brilliant with me. We hope to continue that” Odemwingie added.

EPL Update: United Beat Villa After Fans Protest


Wayne Rooney grabbed a brace in Manchester United’s 3-1 win over Aston Villa as record signing Juan Mata opened his Old Trafford account after a fly-by protest by fans calling for manager David Moyes to be sacked.

A plane carrying an anti- Moyes banner was booed by some home fans as it flew over Old Trafford within two minutes of kick-off.

The aerial message organised by disgruntled United fans read “Wrong One – Moyes Out”.

The hosts then went behind, thanks to an Ashley Westwood’s curling free-kick, which scaled the United wall and beyond a diving David De Gea in the 13th minute.

Despite going down again, United fans kept singing Moyes’ name and they were reward soon after.

Wayne Rooney leveled matters seven minutes later, clinically steering Shinji Kagawa’s cross into the corner of the net.

Mata Celebrates With Young and Rooney On Opening His United Goalscoring Account.

He then scored from the penalty spot after Leandro Bacuna fouled Juan Mata.

Mata doubled United’s lead moments before the hour mark, firing home his first goal since joining United for £37m in January from a Marouane Fellaini pass.

Hernandez converted Adnan Januzaj’s inviting cross to make it 4-1 in stoppage time.

United entertain Bayern Munich on Tuesday in a European Champions League quarter-finals first-leg tie and Moyes was indeed glad his side had responded to criticism following last Tuesday’s derby loss.

The Scot left the club ground amidst wide applause from supporters as the disgruntled fans’ protest met no admiration on the part of the faithful.

SHOCKING: Househelp Murders Retired Judge In Ogun


What could have led the house help to commit this murderous act?

Laderin Estate in Abeokuta, Ogun State was thrown into a bit of confusion when a man formerly in the employ of a retired Chief Magistrate, Olufunmilayo Timehin reportedly murdered her in cold blood.
The househelp identified as David reportedly gained access into the compound when Mrs. Timehin was all alone and committed the act earlier today.David’s employment was said to have been recently terminated by the ex-Chief Magistrate after he was accused of stealing.

Read the Premium Times report below:

The victim, 65-years-old, was later murdered with a machete inside the house.The victim’s son, Olumide, who came to see his mum, said he found the gate locked from inside. He said he heard noise inside the house, scaled the fence, and found his mum already dead while the killer had escaped.

The incident later attracted the State Vigilance Service of the Laderin Estate, who embarked on a search, which eventually led to the apprehension of the alleged killer who hid in the bush behind the house. The suspect was said to have feigned madness by pulling off his cloth and appearing like a mentally deranged person.

The suspect was later handed over to the police.

At about 6.02 p.m., the Ogun State Chief Judge, Olatokunbo Olopade, visited the scene in company of some judicial officials. Police officers from Kemta Division, led by the Divisional Police Officer, were also seen in the house conducting investigation.

The house was besieged by sympathisers, while the corpse was later conveyed to the mortuary. The leader of the Laredin Unit of the vigilante, Mukaila Ayelotan, confirmed the apprehension of the suspect and subsequent handover to police.

WHY Fiberisima should step down immediately – Clarion Chukwurah


Popular Nollywood actress Clarion Chukwurah urged the current President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Ibinabo Fiberisima, to resign from office as she has received a political appointment from President Jonathan. 

Chukwurah made this claim in a two-page statement titled “Ibinabo and the AGN visit to President GEJ: Setting The Record Straight”.

She said that said since Ibinabo has received a governmental appointment, it is expected of her to leave the post of the AGN President and face her new duties, just like Ms Onyeka Onwenu and Mr Kanayo O. Kanayo, her predecessors, did.

“The AGN was not established as a platform to canvass for political appointments or pursue selfish interests,” the actress noted. 

She also expressed her disappointment at Ibinabo taking some actors to the Presidential Villa, an act she saw as going to literally begging for crumbs.

“While it is not surprising that Ibinabo Fiberisima will display such a lack of knowledge of what advances screen actors professionally in the developed world, since she has not functioned consistently as an actor, and has less than 10 titles to her credit in a career spanning from the late 80s, it is however surprising that the established actors within her entourage watched in compliance, the denigration of the integrity of Nigerian screen actors, as she read her requests literally begging for crumbs from the president’s table,” Chukwurah said.

It would be recalled that Ibinabo was appointed by President Jonathan on the board of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) on February 26, 2014.

 

 

Ibadan Evil Forest: Police Assured Us Operator Was Working For Govt –Residents


There are indications that some persons might still be trapped at the suspected kidnappers’ den which has come to be known as Ibadan evil forest.

Some residents of Arowona Adegbeye Estate, Idi-Mangoro, Soka area, the adjoining community, told Saturday PUNCH on Friday that some persons were probably still trapped in a cellar there.

For instance, the residents claimed that the commercial motorcyclist, whose disappearance led to the discovery of the den, was still missing. They said that some of the missing okada rider’s colleagues who were at the den, said he told them on the phone that about eight of them were in a cellar.

The community’s public relations officer, Hon. Segun Adepoju, said, “The okada riders said the missing okada rider contacted them on the phone and told them that he and some other people were still underground.

“They said the last time he reached them was about three days ago, so they suspected that his phone battery had gone flat now. They said he called and told them that they could feel people walking above them at the time people trooped to the place, but that no one heard them.”

The missing okada rider, according to reports, last Saturday, took two passengers to the den from the city centre before his disappearance. With his phone, he was able to call his colleagues at the park to tell them that he had been kidnapped and was being held at Soka area.

Some okada riders reportedly stormed the area in search of their friend and found his motorcycle around the den. However, reports said they did not find their friend, but stumbled on the den with body parts and some kidnapped persons in chains.

“So when they saw his motorcycle, they probed further and found the victims, human bones and body parts. Maybe the abductors of the okada rider didn’t know he was with a mobile phone,” Adepoju said.

Meanwhile, there was an eerie calm at the forest on Friday, when our correspondent was there. There was no activity at the den except for the presence of a few visitors, some police officers and an armoured vehicle stationed at the Macmillan Bus-Stop, the nearest junction to the den. While our correspondent was there, the visitors came in and were not more than three at any point in time.

Residents said it was the first time since Sunday that the place would not witness a large number of visitors. Some of the visitors were said to have come from across the country in search of their missing loved ones, although, many of them were also said to be onlookers and hoodlums.

Since the report about the forest broke out, many Nigerians have wondered how the kidnappers’ den had managed to exist without anyone noticing or informing the police.

However, residents of the estate said they knew all along that something sinister was going on close to them, but were assured by the police that everything was alright. However, the residents dispelled the reports that claim that the kidnappers had been using the forest for about 10 years.

They said the kidnapping activities must have started around 2012.

The community and the forest are separated by Ogunpa River. So from the community, one could see the forest across the river.

Residents identified the person running the den as Gbadamosi, who was said to have had facial tribal marks.

The estate’s Chief Security Officer, Pastor Samson Okoh, said the suspected kidnappers started using the forest about two years ago. He was, however, quick to point out that residents never knew about the kidnapping ring.

He said, “We noticed that they used to bring people in chains to the river to bathe. They would line them up. We were concerned and so the residents’ association took the matter up.

“We went there and saw the man in charge, who had tribal marks. He told us that the then Oyo State Commissioner for Environment gave him approval to treat mentally-ill people there. He showed us a paper (document) to prove it.

“He showed us round the place and what we saw was very unpleasant. The first room he took us to was full of people who looked like mad people (mentally-ill). The second place was a hall with over 100 people. The place smelled of faeces and urine. If one stayed there for one hour, one could become mentally-ill. He asked them, ‘won’t you greet them?’ and they echoed ‘good morning sir.’

“The third room had people who looked more normal than the others and he told us that they had newly been brought there.”

Okoh said Gbadamosi also appealed to the landlords to support the cause with food and clothes whenever they could.

“He told us that he was working for the state government to rid the streets of mentally-ill persons by picking them from the streets and caring for them there. So we’re surprised to hear the state government denying being aware of the activities going on there,” Okoh said.

In spite of Gbadamosi’s reassurance, the residents said they were still concerned about having ‘mentally-ill’ persons close to them.

 

For instance, Adepoju said an incident occurred in 2012 when about four persons in chains escaped from the den and passed through the community.

“They crossed the river to this side and passed through the community. They looked like mad people. So we were concerned for our children,” he said.

Following the incident, Adepoju said community leaders went to report the activities going on at the den at the nearest police station, Sanyo Police Station.

He said, “But we were told that the police station at the Lagos-Ibadan Toll Gate was in charge of the place. The then Divisional Police Officer at Toll Gate Police Station was not around but we met the Divisional Crime Officer 1, who confirmed that Gbadamosi was working for the state government.

“So after that confirmation, there was nothing else we could do. Since then, there had been no incident until we recently heard that they found dead bodies and body parts there.”

Adepoju also said that residents used to hear cries of agony from the place but could not take the case up because of the reassurance given to them by the police.

He said, “Sometimes, we heard people shouting ‘oro o’ in the night and sounds of digging, but we thought what they were doing there was legal since we had been assured by the police.

“We had even planned to go to the State Public Complaints Commission, but decided against it after the police confirmed that they knew about Gbadamosi’s activities there.”

Before the 2012 issue that took the community leaders to the den, they had previously been there because of a different issue affecting the community.

An elder in the community, Mr. Emmanuel Adighibe, said the community wrote to the State Ministry of Environment to complain about some companies dumping wastes inside the river from the forest.

He said, “One hospital was dumping excreta there and one brewery was also dumping waste there. Then, the odour of the wastes pervaded the whole community.

“So we complained at the secretariat and after some time, they came to see things for themselves. After that, they stopped the dumping of wastes there. This happened in 2011 and there were no persons there at the time. So kidnapping could not have started since 10 years ago. We went to the place then and the people in chains were not there at the time.”

Meanwhile, some of the residents of the estate had to abandon the community for fear of being attacked by hoodlums.

One of such residents is Mrs. Alake Adeniyi, whose house is one of the closest to the river.

Adeniyi said her family left the community following threats by hoodlums to kill them. Since the evil den was discovered, Adeniyi said residents had been threatened by hoodlums, who accused them of being part of the kidnapping ring.

“They stoned our house and damaged the doors, windows and some other things. We fear for our lives,” she said.

Adepoju, who just returned to her house, added that the hoodlums accused them of living large and buying cars with “blood money from the forest.

“You can see we are also living modestly. We are not rich and most of the houses here are not even painted,” she said.

Meanwhile, the state government has denied that it was using the forest to care for mentally-ill people in the state.

The Special Adviser to the Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, on Media, Mr. Festus Adedayo, could not be reached on his mobile phone as his line was not available. Our correspondent sent him a text message, but his line was still unavailable as of the time of filing this report.

In a statement by the Publicity Secretary of the ruling party in the state, All Progressives Congress, Mr. Dauda Kolawole, the party said the forest had been in existence before the present administration came to power.

The statement blamed a rival party in the state, Accord, for spreading false reports about the administration’s knowledge of the activities in the forest.

The statement read, “The people of Oyo State are in a state of grief and shock at the horrendous discovery of ritual killers’ den in the state. The situation calls for sober reflection from all and sundry.

“We are aware that the Accord had been attempting to use this unfortunate event to come back to reckoning by instigating the people and selling them cheap lies of government using the forest as a camp for mad people.

“Unfortunately for them, the evidence of victims who told the world that they were not insane has put a lie to their campaign of destruction.”

In a phone conversation with the Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer, Olabisi Ilobanafor, she said that Gbadamosi was “on the run”.

She added that police officers at Toll Gate Police Station denied ever confirming to anyone that they knew about Gbadamosi’s activities at the forest.

Ilobanafor also called on the friends of the missing okada rider to “come forward with his phone number or text messages sent to them”.

She said, “So many people have gone there to dig the place and nothing has been found. They should come forward with his number or the text message sent to them so that the telecoms companies can assist track the location where the call was made from. It will also help us to be sure because it might be the work of people spreading rumours.”

Wyclef Jean Broke, Owes More Than $2Million In Taxes


Wyclef Jean is broke and owes more than 2.5 million dollars in tax lines. His business manager confirmed the news to The Smoking Gun recently.

An email reportedly sent by the rapper’s accountant, David Levin, in January to the Jean’s creditors confirmed the former Fugees’ financial state, as he stated that, “in my most professional verbiage…there ain’t no money.” Levin’s email was sent out in response to threats from the singer’s creditor’s threats of impending court action against Jean.

According to latest reports, the Haitian artist and producer reportedly said he would pay $100,000 to entertainment law firm Shukat Arrow Hafer Weber & Herbsman to settle an outstanding bill of $133,000. The rapper/producer was requested to pay his outstanding debt with the law firm via two installments: $10,000 by last August 1 and another $50,000 by the end of last year.

But it is alleged that Jean did not make any payments to the firm. The alleged agreement stated that if Jean made the two payments totaling $60,000, the law firm would waive the remaining $40,000. But if he failed to make good on the agreement, an additional ten percent annual interest would be added to the $100,000. At this time, Jean reportedly owes the firm $102,027.40.

Reports claim Jean’s current legal predicament isn’t the first time he’s had to pay off a debt. The rapper was questioned about the handling of finances for his now defunct organization, Yele Haiti following the Haitian earthquake. According to reports, the non-profit foundation collected more than $16 million in donations following a series of earthquakes that destroyed the island’s capital city, Port-Au-Prince.

It is likely Yele Haiti ultimately left a string of upset creditors upon closing in 2012.

Cristiano Ronaldo Becomes Fly Emirates Ambassador


Emirates airline on Friday announced that Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portugal captain and reigning Fifa Ballon d’Or title-holder, is its newest global ambassador.

In the same press conference, held in Madrid, the Dubai-based airline, which is a worldwide partner of football’s governing body Fifa, also premiered its campaign video featuring the football superstar alongside Brazilian legend and fellow Emirates global ambassador Pele.

The announcement comes just 74 days before the Fifa World Cup — the world’s most watched sporting event — kicks off in Pele’s home country of Brazil.

Twice named Fifa Player of the Year, Ronaldo, who plays for the Emirates-sponsored Real, will lead his national team to South America to compete in his third tournament.

In January, Emirates announced three-times World Cup winner Pele as their first global ambassador since the 2006 competition in Germany, when Franz Beckenbauer was brought on board.

Boutros Boutros, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice-President of Corporate Communications and Brand, said: “Both Cristiano Ronaldo and Pele are well-known around the world. It is not only that their names and faces are synonymous with top-quality football, but also that they have the ability to inspire and connect with people within and beyond the sports arena.

“Each year Emirates is involved in more than 200 sports events, where fans and customers share exclusive experiences. This campaign reflects the Emirates philosophy to go beyond transporting people and to connect them through sports and culture.

“Cristiano Ronaldo is an icon for this generation of football fans and is widely regarded as one of the greatest footballers on the pitch today. He has broken records and earned awards throughout his career. He is massively talented but he doesn’t rest on his laurels. Instead, he works hard to continue pushing himself to new heights. This ethos, plus his ability to inspire fans across the world, is why we are delighted to be working with him.”

An official Fifa partner since 2006, Emirates has been involved with the Women’s World Cup, the U20 and U17 World Cups, as well as the World Cup itself — including the upcoming 2014 event in Brazil.

Operating daily flights from Dubai to Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Emirates is expected to transport more than 18,000 passengers during the month-long tournament this year.

Yahoo-Yahoo turns diabolical! (MUST READ)


 


The war against Cyber crime otherwise known as yahoo yahoo, by security agents in Nigeria may take a long time to be won, if the confession of a 25-year-old alleged internet fraudster  is anything to go by.

The suspect who simply gave his name as Chidi, disclosed that what people used to know as yahoo yahoo, a term used to defraud unsuspecting and gullible persons,especially foreigners, through the internet, has gone beyond mere conversation and  emotional chat.

He disclosed that yahoo  plus  is the trend in cybercrime world today, as operators  have resorted to using fetish means to  hypnotize their victims in order to get what they want from them.

In this interview with Crime Guard, Chidi said  he ventured into cyber crime eight  years ago, after several attempts to gain admission into the university failed. Rather than venting his frustration on the appropriate channel, he chosed rather, to unleash it on undeserving   individuals,by defrauding them of their hard earned money.

Unfortunately,  five years down the line, he said he could only get himself  a Nigerian used vehicle.
As you read this piece, Chidi said he had turned a new leaf ,begging those he had defrauded to forgive him.

His sudden change of mind according to him, followed a startling discovery that human parts were being used to prepare concoction that would hypnotise victims.

Hear him: “ You may not believe me but it is true. Those who are into yahoo plus use charm to hypnotize their victims. This is because the ordinary yahoo no longer yield the desired result. Our targets are getting wiser and no longer fall prey .

“When I noticed that  I was not making any headway in yahoo business, I decided to inquire from some of my friends who were in same business but were living better off.

To my surprise, I was made to understand that the in-thing was yahoo plus. I decided to embark on a journey to Benin Republic in the company of  Chuks, Odinakachukwu and Chionye. There,we met a herbalist who told us  to buy three live cocks and other items which he used to prepare some concoction for us. After that, we were asked to stand in front of the shrine,while  the herbalist chanted incantations that would enhance our success in yahoo plus.

“As we left for Nigeria, we were given some concoction which the herbalist said were prepared  with human parts. We were asked to put the concoction in  our mouths  whenever we wanted to type or discuss with our victims.

But when I got home, I became restive. I remembered my mum’s admonition never to go into  anything fetish but to serve the almighty God. I kept the concoction away and watched as events unfolded.

Three months later, one of us  Chuks, made 3000 dollars .But  Odinakachuckwu lost his younger brother who went to use his laptop. The instruction of the herbalist was that no one  except him, should use his laptop. Just as we were smarting from that, Chionye lost his girlfriend.

“I decided to quit at that point because I did not want anyone to die on my account.  I am therefore  appealing to those I have defrauded through  yahoo yahoo to forgive me”, he stated.

When operatives of the Special Fraud Unit of the Nigeria Police were contacted, they described Chidi’s claim as untrue , saying the law does not believe in vodoo.

An operative  who spoke on condition of anonymity said the Unit had arrested several internet fraudsters,with  their loot refunded to  victims.

“God also told me two governors will die before the end of 2015″ – Prophet Soul E


After the backlash which accompanied his earlier prophesy about Wizkid & Davido ,Soul E says he is not seeking attention because he is too busy for that.Also gave another prophesy.He told Punch…

“I have always been in the public eye. My marriage caused a scenario in this country. I don’t know what people saw in me. Anybody who feels I am seeking for attention is making a serious mistake; I am too busy for that. I am in Abuja at the moment; I am heading to Lagos and Port Harcourt before the end of the week. I am busy. I am just doing the work of my father.
It was my God who instructed me to give the prophecy and I have done that. I am not wishing anybody anything bad. All they have to do is to pray. I have received calls from Aso Rock. I got prophesies for Wizkid, Davido and Aso Rock and I said what God asked
me to say. I told them to pray. God doesn’t give you prophecy for you to be scared but for you to be aware and pray about it,“They are not my friends and I don’t talk to them. In fact, I have never seen them before and I am not sure they know me. I am not saying they are my enemies. I had to go on Facebook and Instagram to pass my messages. I have said what I want to say and it is fine by me. If they want to take it, fine and if they don’t want to, that is not my problem. I am not a pastor, I am a prophet. A prophet announces his prophecies. 

He told me two northern governors will go, they will die before the end of 2015. This is what God showed me. Prophets come to tell you what God is saying about a situation. Pastors will tell you ‘you are blessed,’ Prophets will tell you to be careful or tell you not to marry the particular person you wanted to marry because of the vision they had seen”

My son cannot recognise me” – Heart broken mother of Ibadan ritual dungeon suvivor


Mrs. Sufianat Ola was not sure if the skeletal figure in front of her was her son. She sobbed uncontrollably, trying to hold her son and embrace him but the mosquito net and the burglary proof blocked her.
Surprisingly, her son, Adewale Ola could still remember his sister. With his thin and barely audible voice, he said, “my sister”.  Tears freely flowed. It wasn’t long before the weeping became contagious as all women at the hospital put their own sorrow behind them and wept with the woman. A woman can joke with any other thing but not the child she carried in her womb for nine months.

As Saturday Vanguard got to the hospital, the women clung to the window of the ward where the survivors were kept. Some of them could no longer talk or recognize anybody. Apart from 45-year old Mrs. Titilayo Dokpesi who could still mutter some intelligible words, others were only grunting like a pig. It would take a lot to make them behave as normal human beings again.
When Saturday Vanguard asked Mrs. Sufianat Ola why she was crying, she responded tearfully.

“My son can no longer recognize me. Is that not enough reason to cry. Ah! This world is wicked. For the past thirteen years, I have been looking for my son not knowing he was in a dungeon.”
How did you know he was in the dungeon?
“He told me. That was what he told me. He said he did not see anybody to rescue him from the claws of those heartless, God-forsaken people.How can people be so heartless all because of money.”
How are you sure he is your son?
“I have a picture he took with his friends here before he was taken away from me. Look at the picture he took with his sister. Apart from that, immediately we got here, he identified her calling her ‘my sister’. She then broke into tears”.

When Saturday Vanguard turned to Wale, he could only mutter, “won pa, won pa” meaning, “they killed the person”. He did not mention any name. That was what he said last before he lost consciousness. Probably sensing the correspondent could help locate their missing persons, four other women swooped on him each saying they were also looking for their loved ones. Saturday Vanguard listened to them one after the other.

Mrs. Anifatu Olaiya who identified herself as the sister of two siblings that got missing said, “my two brothers are missing. Their names are  Nurudeen Rasaki Olaiya and Ismaila Olaiya. Rasaki was a driver who was working between Lagos and Ibadan. He said, he was going to Lagos one day and never came back. Ismaila, was a university undergraduate. At the timehe got missing, he was 29 years. That was about 17 years ago. I am here to check if they could be among those rescued from Soka”.

Morufat Olawale who lives at Olopometa in Ibadan, said her brother
Saheed Ganiyu was last seen ten years ago.

“He was married and he had children. He just disappeared”.
Bose Faniran, with tears in her eyes, recalled that her brother Oluokun Adedeji has been missing since 1992 when he travelled to Lagos and Ramota Inaolaji said she lost contact with her brother, Moruf Adekunle Inaolaji about 13 years ago. According to her, Adekunle’s friend came from abroad and  Adekunle left with him. “We heard that he boarded a taxi and had vanished since then”.

Meanwhile a report by Punch says the people of the community were deceived into thinking mad people were being housed there..
The estate’s Chief Security Officer, Pastor Samson Okoh, said the suspected kidnappers started using the forest about two years ago. He was, however, quick to point out that residents never knew about the kidnapping ring.

He said,

 “We noticed that they used to bring people in chains to the river to bathe. They would line them up. We were concerned and so the residents’ association took the matter up.
“We went there and saw the man in charge, who had tribal marks. He told us that the then Oyo State Commissioner for Environment gave him approval to treat mentally-ill people there. He showed us a paper (document) to prove it.
“He showed us round the place and what we saw was very unpleasant. The first room he took us to was full of people who looked like mad people (mentally-ill). The second place was a hall with over 100 people. The place smelled of faeces and urine. If one stayed there for one hour, one could become mentally-ill. He asked them, ‘won’t you greet them?’ and they echoed ‘good morning sir.’The third room had people who looked more normal than the others and he told us that they had newly been brought there.He told us that he was working for the state government to rid the streets of mentally-ill persons by picking them from the streets and caring for them there. So we’re surprised to hear the state government denying being aware of the activities going on there,” Okoh said.

In spite of Gbadamosi’s reassurance, the residents said they were still concerned about having ‘mentally-ill’ persons close to them.
For instance, Adepoju said an incident occurred in 2012 when about four persons in chains escaped from the den and passed through the community.

 “They crossed the river to this side and passed through the community. They looked like mad people. So we were concerned for our children,”

Following the incident, Adepoju said community leaders went to report the activities going on at the den at the nearest police station, Sanyo Police Station. He said,
“But we were told that the police station at the Lagos-Ibadan Toll Gate was in charge of the place. The then Divisional Police Officer at Toll Gate Police Station was not around but we met the Divisional Crime Officer 1, who confirmed that Gbadamosi was working for the state government.So after that confirmation, there was nothing else we could do. Since then, there had been no incident until we recently heard that they found dead bodies and body parts there.”

Adepoju also said that residents used to hear cries of agony from the place but could not take  the case up because of the reassurance given to them by the police.

He said, “Sometimes, we heard people shouting ‘oro o’ in the night and sounds of digging, but we thought what they were doing there was legal since we had been assured by the police.

A woman was sent to jail for posing unclad photos taken last year on the grounds of the Catholic high school she had once attended.

valerie_dodds_09

Valerie Dodds, also known as ‘Val Midwest,’ began serving a 45-day sentence on Wednesday in the Lancaster County Jail.

“I’m taking it as a really bad vacation,” Dodds said to the station before reporting to jail. “I feel like I’m harmless as to what I did, and they are definitely bringing the hammer as far as the sentencing goes.”

Dodds said last year that she took the pictures on the Pius X High School campus as revenge against students and teachers who ridiculed her for appearing in p****graphy, according to CBS News.

The steamy shots of the then-19-year-old appeared on her adult website in June and led to charges of public indecency and trespassing.

A judge convicted her in December. Dodds quit her appeal this week, KOLN-TV reports.

Missing Malaysian Plane: Pilot’s Colleague Makes New Revelation


A school colleague of the captain of the missing Malaysian plane, Jalil Saad has rubbished claims that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was responsible for the crash of Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 inside the Indian Ocean.
Capture

Saad, who was two years ahead of Zaharie at the Penang Free School in northern Malaysia, described the pilot as ‘well liked’ and ‘a book worm’ who did not deserve accusations of terrorism in the wake of the disappearance of the plane he piloted.

According to him, as a schoolboy, the captain of Flight MH370 was enigmatic, a bit of a mystery and regarded as a very bright young man.

‘He was always on the ball and spent most of his time in the library.’

Zaharie had enrolled in the school, the oldest independent college in South East Asia, after passing the qualifying exam in 1978.

 

Zaharie was ‘studious,’ he said.

Jalil Saad said all the school’s ‘old boys’ were regarded ‘as brothers’ and had remained in touch with each other.

The Penang Free School’s senior administration assistant Ho Nean Chan also said he and Zaharie had studied science alongside each other, and that ‘he was a smart student.’

Following the MH370 incident, the Penang Free School has held prayer meetings.

‘We join the nation in grieving for the loss of all on board the jet liner,’ Ho Nean Chan said.

 

Malaysian Airlines captain Abdul Manaf Hasan also told newsmen that though he did not know Captain Zaharie’s ‘personal  situation’ but that he had been ‘impeccable’ and the missing pilot’s fellow flight captains were dismayed by reports speculating about his potential as a terrorist or suicide bomber.

‘None of us believe he has done it,’ Capt Manaf said. ‘I stand by my friend.’

Ahmad Seth, Shah’s youngest son, also came out in support of his father this week, saying he has ‘ignored all the speculation’ around his 53-year-old father since the plane mysteriously disappeared en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur 19 days ago.

The 26-year-old said the family has yet to accept the official ruling that all 239 people on board are dead, insisting they will wait for physical evidence, as searches were suspended when heavy rain, winds and low clouds forced aircraft to return to base.

‘I’ve read everything online. But I’ve ignored all the speculation,’ he told an online publication.

It comes amid reports that investigators now believe Captain Zaharie is solely responsible for the Malaysian Airline jet’s demise and have dismissed the likelihood of mechanical failure or a hijacking.

A friend of the pilot has revealed Captain Zaharie was in ‘no state of mind to be flying’ and had been left distraught by his wife’s decision to move out of the family home.

* Zaharie’s schoolmate, Jalil Saad says his friend is a good man and can’t intentionally crash a plane

‘He’s one of the finest pilots around and I’m no medical expert, but with all that was happening in his life Zaharie was probably in no state of mind to be flying,’ he told the NZ Herald on the condition of anonymity.

He said his friend’s relationships were breaking down, adding it was possible Captain Zaharie took MH370 for a ‘last joyride’ in which he tried high-risk maneuvers he had perfected on his beloved home-made flight simulator.

Don’t Wear Underwear to Church, so Christ Can “Enter”! – Kenyan Pastor


 

We know this story may sound crazy, but sadly, it is true.
Reverend Njohi, a Reverend at Lord’s Propeller Redemption Church in Kenya, ordered the female members of his congregation to attend church without any form of underwear so that  Christ can enter their lives.

He reportedly banned the wearing of undergarments in his church because they are ungodly, and people need to be  free in body and spirit to receive Christ.
According to The Kenyan Post, Njohi allegedly warned members that there would be terrible consequences if they attempted to secretly wear bra or pant. Mothers were also advised to make sure their daughters comply with the order.

###

In today’s age, it seems as though some unscrupulous pastors are abusing their authority as so-called “Men of God.” Take for instance, the case of the South African pastor Lesego Daniel of Rabboni Centre Ministries who instructed his congregation to eat grass so they could be closer to God.

On the other hand, some naive Christians fall victim to these kinds of scams, and begin to fall into the trap of worshipping their Pastors instead of worshipping God.
Bella Naijarians, what’s your take on this issue? Are preachers like Rev. Njohi and Lesego Daniel to be blamed for these incidents? Or do you think its the congregations that are to blame? Let’s talk about it!

Alex Ferguson Would Have Struggled With Man United-Moyes


david_moyes3354356

Embattled David Moyes believes Ferguson can’t do more than him

The defending champions are seventh in the Premier League, 26 points worse off than at the same stage under Ferguson last year.

“If Sir Alex was here it would be difficult for him as well,” said Moyes.

“It could have been the case no matter what this season. But it has been so un-Man United, which is why we have to look to continue a policy of building, improving, getting better.”

Ferguson retired at the end of last season after United won the Premier League by 11 points. He won 38 trophies, including 13 league titles, during his 26-year reign and played a key role in Moyes’ appointment.

Moyes, 41, gained an impressive reputation at Everton  despite not winning a trophy in 11 years.

However, he has been heavily criticised for United’s poor form this season, and Ferguson – now a director and ambassador for the club – was also abused by some supporters  following the 3-0 home defeat by Manchester City on Tuesday.

Moyes said after the game that he took responsibility for United’s decline saying: “People are aware there is a squad that is ageing, so I think it would have been a tough season for whoever was in charge of Manchester United this year.”

Frustrated Ogboni Cult Member Blows Open Their Secret in New Confession…


Truly sounds like a story out of Nollywood, but according to DailySun, 54 year old frustrated former Ogboni member, Chris Obi, in a new interview with them is crying out that after being a member of the cult for 15 years, a cult he joined cos they promised to make him wealthy overnight, he has nothing to show for it. Then when he finally made up his mind to leave, which he eventually did, the cult people came for his life.

Obi who is based in Onitsha, Anambra State is bitter that he lost 15 of his early years in search of wealth where nothing is given free. Not ready to keep sealed lips, Obi, who was once a machine operator with a firm in Onitsha before turning to merchandise, told Saturday Sun his story:

 “I joined Ogboni because I wanted to be very rich. I was deceived by friends. But I was in it for 15 years without getting any riches. I was only dining with the high and mighty. They were only feeding me. Whenever we go for meetings, which we call club meetings, I used to eat sumptuous meals and drink so much. That would make me happy but once I come back home, I became sad because I was still poor and couldn’t feed my family.

Before I was accepted to join the society, I was registered. I even paid a registration fee. It was
about N75,000 that I paid before they gave me a form to fill. I was asked to supply some personal information in the form. Such information included the names of my first born, my wife, my relatives and my age, among others.

We were also asked to pay for certain things such as gadgets, they cost N30,000 but I paid only N20,000. I got the money from my contribution in the firm I was working before I joined the society. After filling the form, they gave a date for my initiation into the society.”

While giving account of his initiation into the cult, Obi said he was given a blood-like liquid in a calabash to drink as a mark that he would keep the secrets of the society, which he is now determined to break and damn the consequence.

“At the initiation venue, they provided a coffin, covered with a black cloth. I was also given a ring and an handkerchief among other things I can’t mention here. There were traditional priests who presided over the initiation. I remember the priests shouted some incantations which I later understood were warnings for me that what I was joining wasn’t a child’s play.

After that, they put the ring into my hand and said that it was a covenant that demands that I keep sealed lips about the activities of the society. I was also given some liquid in a calabash to drink; the liquid looked like red wine, but it was very red. I cannot really say how it tasted.  We were many that were initiated that day and we all drank the red liquid.

When we had taken the drink, we were congratulated and welcomed to the society with huge promises that we would get all the riches and the powers that we desired. I went home that day feeling on top of the world. I was excited that I have found a smart way to be come very rich”, he stated.

To reassure himself that he was on the right path, Obi would use some of the magical powers given him through rings and handkerchief. He explained:

“The ring that I was given could be described as both magical and fetish. I was told that I could just disappear in the face of danger if I wore it. But it didn’t make me to disappear at any time. Actually, I never got myself into trouble with anyone because all I wanted was to be very rich. So, I did my best to stay out of trouble.

The handkerchief did remarkable things for me. With it I hypnotized people to do my bidding. For instance, I was able to pay far less than what I bought from sellers whenever I went to the market to buy things. I could buy things and ensure my bags are full with foodstuffs and other things with just N1,000 and I even get some balance from the sellers. The handkerchief enables me to cheat sellers by getting them hypnotized.”

Not satisfied with those little benefits from the magical powers given him, frustration began to set in when he could not understand what he would do to get the real wealth he needed. According to him:

 “there was no time I was categorically told how to make wealth or get riches but each time I asked them when it would happen, they would tell me that I should just continue to attend the meetings and make effort to get deeper and know more about the society. They said that in due course I would find out how to get riches.  So, I carried on with them, with the hope that one day, they would reveal to me how to become rich indeed.”

The beginning of the end,  however, began when, on further inquiry on how to get the desired wealth, he was told that he had to sacrifice his first son. In his narration, he said:

 “Something happened about six years ago which made me have a second thought about the society and desired to take a walk from them.

I ran into a member of the society with whom I had been initiated the same time. That means we were at the same level in the society. I knew the man to be as wretched as a church rat before our initiation. But when I met him in 2008, he had become stupendously rich. He rode a very expensive car and I envied him.

He took me to a big restaurant in Onitsha metropolis and there he bought me sumptuous meal and drinks worth thousands of naira. When we got talking, he told me about how rich he had become. He said that he had built a business empire for himself and dealt with white men in Hong Kong. The man took me to one of his firms where he prints many fake documents for several business transactions. He said he wouldn’t get caught because of his connections with the society.

When I asked him how he struck it rich, that was when he dropped the bombshell, saying that he had to sacrifice his first son. He said that thereafter, he continued to kill his other unborn male children from his wife. He said that whenever his wife was pregnant and was about to give birth, he would find out the sex of the baby and if it turns out to be a male, he would use his powers to kill the baby before it would be delivered.”

The confession of his colleague dropped the scale from his eyes and then it dawned on him that he needed to take a decision to proceed and do likewise or take a walk. He eventually chose the latter. According to Obi:

“I was shocked at what he said. He added that he had built houses both at Onitsha and his village. His confession opened my eyes to what I was supposed to do to get riches. It became crystal clear to me that the society expects me to also sacrifice my first son to become rich and I shuddered at the thought of it. I love my family so much. They are all I have in the world.

In fact, I wanted to get rich quick so as to give my family the best in life but it was the same family that was being demanded as sacrifice for the riches. Suddenly, I began to realize that I was foolish to have accepted to join the cult for riches. I regretted heeding the advice from my friends who lured me into it. My friends, particularly the one who was the general secretary of the society, had deceived me with great promises of wealth, they had even told me that they saw my father’s name in the Ogboni membership list when they were checking the names of past late members. But the scales fell off my eyes with what I discovered from my colleague who sacrificed his children.”

From that point, Chris chose to draw the battle line with a group he had served for 15 years.

“Suddenly, I began to hate the society. I couldn’t make myself to attend the meetings again and I began to burn the fetish items they gave me. After a few days that they didn’t see me at the meetings, they sent that my rich friend to me.

He came to ask why I was being absent at meetings and I told him that if the only way for me to get riches is to sacrifice my family, I was opting out. He looked angry when I told him that and warned me against the consequences of quitting the society. A series of persuasions and threats followed for sometime so as to make me change my mind but I stood my ground and drew closer to God and was praying fervently.

After a while, I thought they would let me be. But they told me through their delegation that they wanted to leave me because I had not got riches through them. They added that my soul would have been demanded by them if I had got riches before quitting. That means they would have killed me and captured my soul as punishment.”

He said at the point he was almost relaxing it was all over, the cult struck.

“I thought they had gone out of my life forever when they said this, little did I know that they were actually planning to get rid of me gradually. Later that year, 2008, I had a minor accident and it got my legs swollen. And the legs continued to swell the more.

It defied all kinds of treatment I sought for it. In fact, I attended many churches for a miracle of healing. I paid tithes, huge offerings and even bought things for the churches but nothing happened until last year January when I attended the crusade of the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries at Mgbidi where I eventually got my deliverance from their attack”, Obi stated with a sigh of relief.

 

We’ll Resist Allocation Of Grazing Reserves To Fulani Herdsmen – S/E CAN


FulaniThe South East zonal chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, yesterday warned that it would resist any attempt to create grazing reserves for Fulani herdsmen in any part of the South-East geo-political zone.

The CAN zonal chairman, Bishop David Eberechukwu, who made this known in a statement in Awka, Anambra State yesterday, warned those championing the cause for the allocation of land as grazing field for the Fulani nomads to desist because the zone was not yet done accommodating all the people from the South East displaced by insurgency the North.

According to Eberechukwu, all the governors in the zone should never accept the idea of alloting grazing fields to the Fulani herdsmen under any circumstance.

The zone is made up of Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo States.

The statement reads in part: “The governors of the South East should avoid anything that will make posterity to be against them. The South East CAN is ready to go on demonstration to resist this move.

“How can we give grazing field to the Fulani herdsmen knowing fully well that we do not have land in the East? We are eagerly looking for a way to accommodate all our people already displaced in the North as a result of Boko Haram.

“How can this be when we are already experiencing defiling of our girls/wives in the hands of the same Fulani rearers?

“Again, the experience of Benue and Plateau where the same herdsmen are fighting the indigenes is not welcomed and we say no to their invasion of the entire nation. Allowing them is an importation of wars and everlasting fights with the people.

“We call on the Northern governors to please build ranches for their kinsmen who are rearing cattle as this will give them employment and eliminate poverty in their states”.

Clarion Chukwura paid N10Million for Apaye movie


Capture

Clarion recently featured in a movie, titled ‘Apaye‘ (A Mother’s Love) produced by Emem Isong, founder of Royal Arts Academy and she reportedly got paid N10million for her role, which gave her the opportunity to become the highest paid actress in Nollywood in a particular epoch.

Clarion who played the role of Yepayeye, during the movie premiere said most challenging role that she has ever played, as she had to live the character of a woman who died less than six months to her production and was still fresh in people’s minds.

Apaye is a true life story on the life of a spectacular woman, (Dame Patience Jonathan’s late foster mother), who against all odds, fearlessly and uncompromisingly battled her way to success.

According to report, Apaye is the most expensive and highest budget film in Nollywood so far. As gathered, the star Akwa-Ibom born filmmaker, Ms Isong was commissioned with the sum of N55million to produce the movie. This is because, Apaye is an outstanding film that tells the story of a woman who touched many people’s lives, despite making wrong choices at the initial stage of her life by marrying a man who already has a wife. Still as a result of her doggedness she scaled through and made huge living. Therefore, it merited more than the said production capital.

Is Basketmouth Jealous Of P-Square?


Ace Nigerian comedian Basketmouth is known for his piercing and rib-cracking jokes. From ladies to fellow celebrities, no one is safe from his epic yabs.
At this week’s episode of Industry Nite, the rib-cracker went after singing duo P-Square as he questioned their craft and songs. Basketmouth who was joking about how hard comedians have to work compared to musicians used the singing duo as an example and in a completely unguarded moment, the comedian asked:

‘Wetin dem dey sing sef?’

This won’t be the first time P-Square find themselves as the butt of Basketmouth’s jokes as the ace comedian has created a few jokes around them in the past.
With this we can’t help but wonder, does Basketmouth have a hidden vendetta against P-Square?

Muslim cleric caught slaughtering girl in Ibadan, Says members of the spiritual world lifted his hands to slit her throat


Wow!!! Barely a week after the Ibadan Horror house was discovered,another man was caught with human tongues, a headless body discovered on a major road,another lynched to death for being a suspected ritualist and now,a Muslim cleric was caught on Thursday night while slaughtering a girl who had gone to him for spiritual help.
According to Nigerian Tribune…

 The suspect, Isah Salaudeen, 37, is currently being held at the Iyaganku Division of Oyo State Police Command for attempted murder of one Chiwendu Nkwocha (also known as Divine).
Salaudeen had started using knife to slit the throat of the girl after which he then used a cutlass to hack her. This made the lady to scream, jumped up from where she was lying and ran out for help.

The incident was said to have been reported by one Aafa Taiye Agulofi and Ademola Agoro, residents of Ori Eru, along Agbaje road, Agbeni area of Ibadan, where the suspect also resided.
Saturday Tribune gathered that Nkwocha, who resides at 11, Ogundimu Street, Iju-Ishaga, Lagos State, was brought to Salaudeen by her boyfriend, Bola, in January this year so that he would help in using prayers and other means to exorcise some spirits troubling her.
Since then, Nkwocha had been undergoing ‘spiritual cleansing’ by being given herbs, concoctions and ‘holy water’ to cure her.

On the fateful day, Salaudeen reportedly asked Nkwocha to lie down while he covered her face with a cloth. Suddenly, the lady felt a sharp pain on her throat. Before she could fathom what was happening, the cleric reportedly attempted to hack her with a cutlass to make his work faster when it seemed the knife was not achieving the aim intended.
Residents of the area who were shocked at the occurrence were said to have suspected that he might have wanted to use the lady for ritual purposes.
Nkwocha is said to be receiving treatment at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan.
But Salaudeen denied trying to deliberately kill the lady, saying he did not know what came over him. He said he believed he was manipulated by the spirits troubling Nkwocha to commit the criminal act.

In an interview with Saturday Tribune, Salaudeen, an indigene of Ibadan and a divorcee with two children, said he knew Nkwocha through one Bola who was her boyfriend.

“I knew Bola and the lady in January. It was one Nike from Lagos State who brought Bola to me and I knew Nike through one Baba Ibeji, a taxi driver who was my client. Bola was Nike’s boyfriend but Bola later came to me and said he was no longer going out with Nike.
“I know Bola and Nkwocha use laptop to get money from people and I used to pray for them so that their venture would yield fruits. About one month after, the lady came back to me for help, saying that Bola called her a prostitute and said that he could not marry her because she was not a ‘wife material’.
“She said I should help her with prayers so that she would meet rich men who would give her money. She used to come and go as she liked. She would stay with me and go out at will to go out with men. Because she used to play with me, I became aroused and had slept with her about two times.
“On Thursday morning, after my children left for school, I laid on a couch while she was on the floor. Suddenly, I looked at a cutlass in my room behind a cupboard. I didn’t know what happened; I just knew I took the cutlass and used it to cut her throat. She ran outside and I was wondering what happened when people came in to apprehend me.”

When asked if he intended to use Nkwocha for ritual or someone asked her for human body parts, Salaudeen replied in the negative, saying that he had never had a client demanding for such and had never thought of such a thing.

“I am a Muslim cleric and will never do rituals. Even I have self-discipline so much that I don’t have girlfriend or go to prostitutes since my wife and I divorced. If I feel like having sex, I just masturbate until I (ejaculate). Divine (Nkwocha) used to play hard and was also staying with me; that was why I had sex with her. “I only used cutlass on her throat. I don’t know how blood got to the knife. I also don’t know how the injury on her hand and cheek came about. I pray that she survives so that she could defend me.It must have been her members in the spiritual world who lifted my hands to (slit) her throat. She told me that they had been troubling her, saying she had dreadlocks which were cut. She further told me that it was the cutting of the dreadlocks that had been giving her spiritual problems,” Salaudeen further disclosed.

The spokesperson for the Oyo State police command, Olabisi Okuwobi-Ilobanafor, a Superintendent of Police, confirmed the incident, saying that the suspect would be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Iyaganku, Ibadan, for further investigations.

Ifeanyi Ubah Makes Move To Dump LP For PDP


Ifeanyi-Ubah-MD-Capital-OilThere were strong indications yesterday that Capital Oil and Gas boss, Ifeanyi Ubah, has dumped the Labour Party, LP, for the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Ubah, who was the LP gubernatorial candidate in the Anambra State governorship election last November, was sighted at the Wadata Plaza national headquarters  of PDP discussing with the governorship candidate of the party in the June 21 Ekiti governorship elections, Ayo Fayose.

He was also seen engaged in what looked like serious discussions with the PDP national publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh.

Thereafter, Ubah came to the National Executive Committee, NEC hall where he had brief discussions with some members of the National Working Committee, NWC.

He later went to Metuh’s office with the Anambra PDP chairman, Chief Ken Emeakayi to wait for the PDP spokesperson, who was at the NEC hall coordinating the presentation of certificate of return to Fayose by the party’s national chairman, Alhaji Adamu Muazu.

Two British citizens, Nigerians arrested for crude oil theft, bribery


Capture

The suspects, who brought $66,500 (N10.6 million) to the JTF as the first half of the total N20m bribe, were paraded at the JTF Headquarters in Yenagoa on Friday.

The cash exhibit was also displayed before journalists.

JTF command explained that a representative of the syndicate approached the JTF with an approval letter from Naval Headquarters for a vessel, NNS Delta, to evacuate petroleum products.

Based on the letter, the JTF said it granted the approval and directed its troops to monitor the activities of the firm in the water ways.

The oil theft syndicate unfolded a plan to hack into Shell Petroleum Development Company’s (SPDC) pipeline in Chamoni creek near Warri to siphon crude.

“The oil theft syndicate offered the Operation Officer of JTF’s 3 Battalion an initial payment of 5,000 for ‘recharge card’ and $1,500 to fuel the gunboat that will escort the stolen crude.

“The two British Nationals subsequently requested a meeting with the Brigade Commander of 4 Brigade where the suspects expressed their desire to connect a hose to SPDC pipeline along the Chanomi creek in Delta state to illegally siphon crude oil into barges.

“The foreign nationals promised to bribe the Brigade Commander, Brigadier General Fidelis Azinta with N20 million and to take care of officers and soldiers along the Chanomi creek.

Frank Artus goes Nudé in New Movie


Ghanaian actor, Frank Artus who is perennially based in Nigeria is known for his daring ability to blend into any role his script demands, even if that script prescribes Artus goes all bare in his birthday suit.
He has done a few of raunchy soft porn movies, giving his character a graphic personality.

But this new film where Frank is baring it all again has nothing of soft porn in it, it is an occultic movie where the actor was stripped naked and dragged all over the floor as a punishment of sort. In the film ‘Order of the Ring’, the actor was pictured running stark naked while he tried to hide his genitals with his hands.

The movie is produced by Chimezie Emelionwu and directed by Don Steve Anuka. Other stars in the movie  include Clem Ohameze, Oge Okoye, Esther Audu, among others.

Mrs Ngala who was accompanied by another Cameroonian lady, Mrs Mende Cecila Fru said she heard about Ayodele Herbal Medicine Home which is assisting women to deliver children supernaturally and so, she had to borrow money and come to Nigeria to consult the woman and she was given herbal medicine which she took and got pregnant.

She said she paid N277.000 was for the herbs to enable her become pregnant while N1 .2 mliion was for the delivery of the baby, making a total of N1.5 million.

She was told not to visit any orthodox hospital during delivery but to go to Okitipupa. So when it was time for delivery she went there. She was asked to lie on the floor while somebody exerted pressure on her stomach and she was asked to push and the baby came out and fell on the floor.

“The woman then beat the child three times on the back and the child began to cry and I was asked to stand up,” she said.

“She told me the delivery was supernatural and so, I should not visit any  when I am about to deliver, that I should go to  and truly when I got there, after nine days, she took me to a room  and delivered me of the baby”.

Mrs Fru who accompanied Mrs Ngala said she did not go inside the room where the baby was delivered but that she sat in the parlour She was taken in after the delivery and she claims to have seen the child still covered in blood.

According to Mr Samuel Igochi, the Comptroller of  Immigration, Cross River State Command, a team was constituted to examine Ngala but after due examination, there were no signs in her that she actually delivered the baby.

He said the child would be handed over to NAPTIP for preservation till the determination of the case since the Nigerian  Immigration Service is not a baby factory.

Drama between Femi Kuti and Pastor Adefarasin at House on the rock


At the funeral service of Olufemi Enitan Segun, which took place at the House on the Rock Cathedral, Lekki, Lagos, on Friday, March 28, 2014, there was a mild drama between Pastor Paul Adefarasin and King of Afrobeat, Femi Kuti.

While giving a sermon, Pastor Adefarasin indicated that the deceased was in paradise as he gave his life to Christ and became born again before his demise.

He therefore urged all present to give their lives to Christ and as he was saying this, the camera focused on Femi Kuti who doesn’t believe in Christianity.

Femi Kuti

Femi Kuti  later engaged some people in discussion about the sermon, saying that it was even those who claim to be religious that ordered the death of Jesus and that they preferred for Him to die, than to exchange him for Barnabas.

He was later approached by Pastor Adefarasin, and both talked at length and at the end, they both maintained their positions while parting ways amicably.

Yobo’s younger brother blasts UK landlord


yobo

Smith claimed there were burn marks on the carpet, the kitchen and bathroom were left in a mess and the walls had holes in them – signs left from flat-screen television installation.

Gideon, who lives in the South Ferry Quay apartment, expressed his disappointment at Smith’s behaviour.

“I’m the one that lived there, paid for the rent and responsible for anything he has to say,” Gideon explained.

“He’s been trying to make it look like (Joseph) was involved when I was actually the one that lived there from 2010 until this year.”

The younger Yobo, who returned the keys to the flat over the weekend, slammed his former landlord and accused him of looking for attention.

He said: “I know people want cheap publicity but any concerns he has should be directed at me or the letting agency.

“Mentioning my brother’s name because he is a Premier League footballer is a shameful thing to do.

“It’s sad he took that route all in the name of seeking attention and the spotlight.”

Moyes: Even Fergie Would Have Struggled This Season


Manchester United manager David Moyes has claimed that even Sir
Alex Ferguson, would have struggled to gain success at the club this season, according to ESPN.

United are languishing in 7th place and many have criticised Moyes for the current situation at the club.

The Scot, who was handpicked to become United’s manager by Ferguson, however said, “People are aware there is a squad that is a bit
more ageing, so I think it would have been a tough season for whoever was in charge of Manchester United this year.

He added, “And I actually think if Sir Alex was here this year it would be difficult for Sir Alex as well and I’m sure he would be aware of it.”

Moyes said he’s aware that Manchester United does not have
the luxury of having a down season like many smaller clubs.

“It could have been the case no matter what this season, but it has been so un-Man United, which is why we have to look to continue a policy of
building, improving, getting better and that’s what we’ll try and do,” said Moyes.

Ferguson go into today’s tie against Aston Villa with 18 points adrift in seventh place.

Ekiti 2014: If I Fail To Defeat Fayemi, Don’t Give Me Federal Appointment, Says Fayose


Ayo-Fayose-Vs-Kayode-FayemiAlthough the Ekiti State gubernatorial election is still three months away, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, flag- bearer, Mr. Ayo Fayose has boasted that he will send the incumbent govenor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi packing from the Government House.

He spoke yesterday at the national secretariat of PDP in Abuja when the national leadership of the ruling party presented him with the Certificate of Return.

The former Ekiti governor noted that twelve years after his exit from power, he has become wiser, more responsible and disciplined now, adding that as a political lion, who has lived all his life in the trenches, his emergence as PDP governorship candidate was a threat to Governor Fayemi.

Fayose, who defeated thirteen other aspirants last Saturday to emerge the PDP flag-bearer, noted that he is optimstic he would defeat Fayemi because he knew how he became the state governor in the first instance, adding, “I won’t look for government appointment because if they appoint you today, you may be removed tomorrow.

“I won’t ask the Federal Government for appointment if I fail to win this election. Let the Federal Government not consider me or any member of my family if I fail to send Fayemi packing. I’m sending Fayemi back to where he came from and we shall take over the Government House”.

Fayose also pleaded with all those he might have offended in the past to find a place in their hearts to forgive him even as he assured them that he had learnt his lessons having gone into political hibernation for 12 years.

He also appealed to the other 13 aspirants with whom he contested the sole PDP governorship ticket and who have vowed not to recognize his candidature, to put whatever grievance they have behind and join hands with him to ensure that the party wins the state.

According to him, there was the need for reconciliation, even as he promised that he will do their bidding as he was only interested in the governorship position and will not contend for other positions.

“The way forward is that other aspirants should support me and work with me. It is their right to be angry and if I had lost, I will also be angry because is not easy to lose N11 million”, he said.

Speaking earlier, the National Chairman of the party, Dr. Ahmadu Adamu Mua’zu, while handing over the Certificate of Return to Fayose, reminded him of the need to distribute positions among loyal party members to ensure equity and justice and advised aspirants on the platform of the party to work with the people at the grass root for their electoral victories instead of hinging all their hopes on political god-fathers.

Mu’azu assured that his leadership would ensure total reconciliation of the aggrieved members just as he expressed optimism that the PDP would emerge winner of the June 12 governorship election, adding that there was no god-fatherism in the ruling party.

FROM LEFT: MANAGING DIRECTOR, TRANSMISSION COMPANY OF NIGERIA (TCN), MR MACK KAST; TCN DEPUTY CHAIRMAN, MR SOLA AKINFEMIWA; CHAIRMAN, MR IBRAHIM WAZIRI AND VICE-PRESIDENT NAMADI SAMBO AT A  MEETING AT THE PRESIDENTIAL VILLA IN ABUJA ON FRIDAY (28/3/14).

The Federal Government on Friday instructed the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) to take over all completed transmission lines and commence the immediate distribution of electricity to consumers.

The directive was given by Vice President Namadi Sambo when the board and supervising management of the TCN and other officials of the power sector paid him a visit at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Sambo was quoted in a statement by his spokesperson, Umar Sanni, as telling the Chairman of the TCN, Ibrahim Waziri, that the government had identified three areas in order to achieve its objective of adequate power supply.

The areas, according to the statement, are financing the power sector; addressing properly the generation, transmission distribution and development of gas infrastructure for gas supply; and the production of hydro-power plants to meet the planned objectives of the vision 2020:20.

“There are a lot of challenges particularly as government is keeping the TCN as a government-owned entity as a new strategy for bringing in Manitoba to manage and transfer technology to our local expertise”, he was quoted as saying.

Sambo also assured stakeholders of the administration’s continued support and partnership towards achieving the set goals.

The Sun Associate Editor ‘Abducted’ From Lagos Home By Abia Policemen


policeThe management of Sun Publishing Limited said yesterday that policemen from the Abia State Command on Thursday ‘abducted’ an associate editor of the newspaper Mr. Ebere Wabara, from his Surulere residence in Lagos.

Ebere is also Special Assistant, Media to former governor of Abia State and founder of The Sun newspaper, Dr. Uzor Orji Kalu.

According to a statement by Managing Director of The Sun, Femi Adesina, the journalist was reportedly abducted between 6.30 and 7a.m in the presence of his wife, Adanna, and their underaged children.

The policemen from the State CID, Umuahia, according to Mr. Adesina, “had identified themselves to Wabara, and told him that some unnamed persons had written a petition against him in Abia State. He was, therefore, asked to follow them to the state, where he would be charged with sedition”.

Wabara was first taken to Sholoki Police Station at Aguda, Surulere, and later to Oyingbo police station, also in Lagos.

Narrating how her husband was taken, Adanna, said he had gone downstairs to pick something from his car when suddenly she heard him screaming.

“Shortly after, I heard him shouting, and I ran downstairs.  I saw between seven and eight men, who said they were policemen.  They said he needed to follow them to Umuahia, that there was a petition against him for sedition”, she said.

She continued: “They took us back into the house, one of them brought out an I.D Card, showing that he was a policeman.  They requested to search our bedroom.  They did, and collected my husband’s laptop and telephone.

“I followed as they took him to Sholoki Police Station, but later, I had to take the children to school.  By the time I returned, they had moved him away.  His phones could not be reached, and he had not eaten.  Now, we are deeply traumatized, the entire family”.

Ebere’s employers said the abduction could only have been at the prompting of the Abia State Commissioner of Police, Mr Adamu Ibrahim, and “perhaps under the further instruction of the state governor, Chief T. A. Orji, as a throwback to the dark days of military dictatorship, when might was right, and the strong trampled on the weak”.

It added: “it is unconscionable, repressive and flies in the face of all that is decent and civil.  It has all the trappings of autocracy, rather than democracy.

“If Mr Wabara infringed any law, we would have expected the police to invite him to answer questions, and then charge him to court.  The approach that has been adopted is Gestapo-like, and unbecoming of those who instigated it.

“Those entrusted with the upholding of the law are not expected to trample on others.

“This is what the policemen from Abia State have done, and it runs contrary to the code of conduct for policemen as espoused by the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Dikko Abubakar”, the Sun Publishing Limited said.

When contacted, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr. Charles Ajunwa confirmed the development but denied the editor was abducted.

The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Orji, Mr. Geofrey Ogbonna denied the involvement of his principal as he was not even aware of the development.

Why We Won’t Probe Diezani’s N10bn Jet Allegation – Presidency


Allison-Madueke-jetThe Presidency has explained its seeming indifference to constitute a panel to probe the allegations of misuse of public funds leveled against the Minister of Petroleum, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, who made the presidency’s position known on the matter that has dominated public discourse in the past one week, said the Federal Government would not set up a probe panel to investigate the minister because she is currently under investigation by the House of Representatives.

Alison-Madueke was alleged to have spent N10bn on a chartered Challenger 850 aircraft in two years during which she used it for both official and unofficial purposes.

The House is currently probing the allegations and has gone further to uncover another private jet allegedly at the beck and call of the embattled minister and funded by tax payers.

However, Okupe said that the Federal Government could not institute a probe panel on matters that had not been substantiated.

Okupe, who spoke to Saturday PUNCH yesterday on the matter, said since the House of Representatives had started investigating the minister, the right thing to do was to await the outcome of such a probe before any further action could be taken.

He said, “The Federal Government cannot set up a probe panel just on things that have not been substantiated as such. The information I have is that the House of Representatives is looking into the matter and they want to invite the honourable minister. Definitely, the right thing is to wait for the outcome of such an interaction before anybody can decide to do anything”.

Though the House of Representatives had assured Nigerians that it would investigate the allegations against the petroleum minister and make its findings public, it is yet to start the probe one week after it gave the promise.

Mourinho Defends Fergie After Fans Yell At Him


Chelsea Manager Jose Mourinho has spoken in defence of Sir Alex Ferguson following reaction of some Manchester United fans after Tuesday’s loss to city rivals Manchester City, with some fans yelling at the former manager.

Mourinho said he cannot comprehend why some supporters would blame
Ferguson for the club’s struggles this season.

“Lots of people are speaking about Sir Alex. He made Man United what Man United are,” he said.

“He decided to retire. When somebody decides to retire, especially a person like him, he deserves to retire. He deserves to enjoy his life.

“And now he’s responsible for what? Man United lose a match, it’s his responsibility? Man United struggling in the Premier League is his problem?

“Wayne Rooney misses a goal, it’s his fault? Or David de Gea makes a mistake and it’s his fault?

“He can only be blamed for one thing: Man United being the club Man United are. He’s retired. Let him retire in peace,” Mourinho said.
