CONFESSION: I Sell Babies From N1.5 Million To N3 Million - Suspect

Shock could best describe the expression on the faces of members of the press as they listened to the confessional statements made by 50-year-old Oby George, over the role she, and other members of a baby-for-sale syndicate, played in helping women deliver babies.
Making the confession recently in Lagos, at the state Police Command, the Port Harcourt-based woman, who had been in the business for over a year, confessed to having helped women deliver countless number of children through a very questionable method. This she does after she is been paid between N1,500,000 to N3,000,000, depending on the sex and number of babies her clients requests for.
The bubble, however, bust when a 61-year-old Lagos-based woman, identified as Cecilia Adesope, who was allegedly delivered of a set of twins at the Port Harcourt delivery centre, was arrested by the police in Lagos, when she took the babies to a hospital for inoculation.
Embattled Oby said: “I am now ready to talk, because it seems we are hiding something here. Cecilia was brought to me by one Mr. and Mrs Peller. No… she was brought to me by Mrs Okoro, who is now at large. She has been treating her, and she pleaded with me to help her deliver a set of twin babies. That all her life she has not had any child of her own, that she is desperate.
“Mrs Okoro told me that we should use my apartment since her husband was around and she does not want him to know about this issue. So I agreed and N1,500,000 was paid into my account for the job. On her due date, she travelled down to Port Harcourt and we all went to my place. I gave her some herbs to chew after which she went to the toilet, when she got out, we asked her to lie down and push with all her might while I held her hands.
“At a point, we used a razor blade to give her some tear so that blood will come out and make the whole thing look real. Mrs Okoro then brought the babies, whom she had arranged from somewhere. That was when mama heard the cries of babies.”
Mother’s story
Asked how she met Mrs Okoro and where the babies were brought from, Oby told newsmen that she knows Mrs Okoro very well, as both of them work together in ‘helping women deliver,’ but declined to give any information on where the babies were brought from.
On her part, Cecilia Adesope, told newsmen that she was brought to Oby by a woman still at large, believed to be Mrs Okoro, who had told her Oby would be able to help her. She said she was asked to go to Port Harcourt for delivery after she paying N1,500,000.
Cecilia said she was given some herbs after which she noticed her stomach getting bigger and she was convinced she was finally pregnant.
She said: “When I got to Port Harcourt for delivery on the date I was given, I was given something like a seed to chew. After I did, I felt like going to the toilet. When I got out of the toilet, I was asked to lie down and push with all my power.
“After that, I heard cries of babies. I also noticed some blood on my private part, and was given a pad to use. I did not go to the hospital during the pregnancy period, because I was instructed not to do so, as the hospital scan will not see the babies.
“When I returned to Lagos with my set of twins, I decided to take them to the hospital for inoculation injections. I don’t know what went wrong, but while we were waiting for the injection, the police came and arrested me.”
Another expectant ‘mother’
Also paraded was 43-year-old Joy Ibe, a supposedly pregnant woman, who lives at Ajah area of Lagos.
She told newsmen she has been married for 18 years without any issue, a dilemma that sent her everywhere seeking for the fruit of the womb, until she came in contact with Port Harcourt-based Oby Gorge.
Joy told newsmen how she met Oby, and what followed: “One of my neighbours visited Nigeria and heard about Oby. After she travelled back to the Unites States, she sent me Oby’s number and asked me to contact her if I am interested.
“I called up Oby and told her my problems. She gave me her address to come and meet her in Port Harcourt. When I got to there and met with her, she gave me some herbs, which I took and returned to Lagos. After sometime, I noticed that my stomach started getting bigger, and I believed I was pregnant.
“I was also asked to come to Port Harcourt when I am due to deliver. I have not gone to the hospital for scan, because the instruction given to me was that the scan will not be able to identify the babies in the womb. I paid her N2,700,000 for triplets.
Signs of pregnancy
“The only signs I have as a pregnant woman is my swollen stomach and legs which you can see. I still see my period sometimes.
“On the day I was arrested by the police, Oby had invited me to Port Harcourt for check-up, so she could ascertain if I am due for delivery. I went and she checked me. After that she said I was not due, that I have to wait for a little longer.
“But because it was late for me to travel back to Lagos that very day, she said I should pass the night at her house. I obliged. That was when the police came and arrested us. From what I am seeing right now, I don’t believe that I am pregnant despite my swollen stomach and legs.”
I think I’m pregnant
Information made available to members of the press by the Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide, revealed that it took a while for Cecelia to be convinced that she did not actually deliver the babies, going by the supposedly pregnancy period and delivery experience she had.
It was also gathered that the babies have been taken to one of the orphanage homes in Lagos.

BOKO HARAM: Amigo Supermarket Owner A Terrorist?

The JTF said Fauzi Fawad is on the run.
Nigerian security agencies have linked a co-owner of two major ongoing businesses in the nation’s capital as a ring leader in a major terrorist operation in the country.
In a statement by the spokesman of the Joint Task Force in Kano, Ikedichi Iweha, Fauzi Fawad, the co-owner of Amigo Supermarket and Wonderland Amusement Park, was named as a member of a Lebanese Hezbollah terrorist cell in Nigeria.
Wonderland is Abuja’s biggest and most popular amusement park, while Amigo is one of the largest supermarkets in the Nigerian capital.
The JTF said Mr. Fawad’s name was mentioned by “all those arrested,” for being in possession of heavy weapons, and other terrorism related activities.
Mr. Fawad is now on the run, the JTF said.
The JTF said it arrested three Lebanese suspected of owning the large cache of arms recovered at a bunker in the city.
The Brigade Commander, 3rd Brigade, Nigerian Army, Iliyasu Abba, said one of the suspects was arrested on Tuesday at a house on Gaya Road in Bompai area of Kano.
He said another suspect was arrested in Abuja while the third suspect was apprehended since May 16, at Aminu Kano International Airport, on his way to Beirut, Lebanon.
“The one arrested at Malam Aminu Kano International Airport had a sum of 60,000 US dollars in his possession”.
He said one Abdullahi Hassan Tahir Padalla, who was the owner of the house in which one of the suspect was arrested was still at large.
Mr. Abba said among the weapons discovered during the operation on Tuesday were 17 AK 47 rifles, 44 magazines, four land mines and 12 RPG bombs, 14 RPG charger, 11 66 mm anti-tanks weapons, one SMG magazine, one pistol and magazine.
Also, 11, 433 rounds of 7.26 mm special, 76 hand grenade, rocket propelled guns, 122 calibre artillery and anti mines weapons were recovered.
“What you are seeing here are weapons of mass destruction in terms of our situation here right now in Nigerian.
“If these things have been brought out only God knows the type of destruction they will cause to innocent persons in the state or in the country,’’ he said.
He said the Department of State Security Service (SSS) in Abuja had been investigating the case for long.
In a remark, the state Director of the SSS, Bassey Ettang, said that the three suspects had a link to the Hezbollah group in Lebanon.
He said the suspects have for a long time been using the bunker in the house to stockpile arms and ammunition.
He restated the commitment of the SSS and other security agencies to continue with the ongoing war on criminals nationwide.

On 28 May 13 a combined team of the JTF involving the NA of the 3 Brigade here in Kano and the Kano state DSS conducted a thorough search of this house located at No 3 Gaya Road off Bompai Road Kano belonging to one Abdul Hassan Taher Fadlalla a Lebanese national who is currently out of the country. After painstaking search of the whole premises, the search team uncovered an underground bunker in the the master bed room where a large quantity of assorted weapons of different types and caliber were recovered.
The bunker was specially constructed for this purpose. It is worth mentioning to say that the weapons include anti tank weapons, rocket propelled guns, anti tank/anti personnel mines among other dangerous weapons.
All the weapons and ammunition recovered were properly concealed with several layers of concrete and placed in coolers, drums and bags neatly wrapped.
These discoveries were not accidental but the outcome of an ongoing robust counter terrorism investigation by the Department of the State Services Abuja in the past several months. The investigation also confirms the existence of a Hizbullah Foreign Terrorist Cell in Nigeria. Consequently, the DSS on 16 May 2013 arrested one Mustapha Fawaz the co-owner of the popular Amigo Supermarket as well as the wonderland Amusement Park all in Abuja. Thus, his arrest and confession unveiled other members of the foreign terrorists network which led to the interception of one member of the syndicate named Abdullah Tahini a Lebanese national at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport with undeclared amount of sixty thousand United States Dollars on him enroute Beirut. Thereafter on 26 May 2013 one Talal Roda also a Lebanese with Nigerian Passport was arrested in this same house.
All those arrested have confessed to have undergone Hizbullah terrorist training and further implicated one Fauzi Fawad, also a co-owner of Amigo Supermarket and wonderland Amusement Park. However, the fellow is now at large. The arms and ammunition were targeted at facilities of Israel and Western interest in Nigeria, however, the security agencies are making frantic efforts to unveil the true situation. At the end of investigation, all those involved will be prosecuted.

UNBEARABLE: Father Of 3 Commits Suicide?

A father of three, who was identified as Patrick Essien, was reported have committed suicide, yesterday, in Benin after he was allegedly sacked from the transport company where he worked.
His dangling body was found in the roof of the toilet at the residence at Imasabemwen Street, off Siluko Road.
Some co-tenants, who spoke to journalists, said the deceased had complained earlier that he had been sacked, although they could not volunteer the name of the company.
According to them, a co-tenant, who went to the toilet to ease himself, peeped in after knocking several times without getting any response. That was when he saw a body dangling from the roof.
They said the late driver had been living at the residence for the past 14 years without any wife or children but that he told them he had a wife and three kids somewhere.
According to them, “we saw him this morning. He said he was sacked and we later found him dead in the toilet.”
His corpse was later taken away by the police.
In a related development, a 74-year-old man, Clement Omorogbe, has been jailed by an Egor Magistrate Court for raping a minor in November 2010.
Presiding Magistrate, Eboh Braimoh in her judgment, said there were increasing cases of rape and sentenced the accused to serve as deterrent to others.

AT LAST: Lawmakers Suspend $40 Million Internet Surveillance Contract?

The House ordered an investigation of the contract award.
The House of Representatives has ordered the immediate suspension of the $40 million (N6 billion) internet surveillance contract awarded secretly by the Nigerian government to an Israeli firm.
A house resolution approved Thursday, said no further action should be taken on the controversial spy project, which has sparked national fury, until three house committees complete an investigation in three weeks.
The clandestine project, exposed by PREMIUM TIMES, was awarded by the Jonathan administration to Elbit Systems, an Israeli Info tech firm, to spy on millions of Nigerian internet users. It is seen as part of the government’s widened clampdown on free media, and unrestrained use of the internet to attack government officials and policies.
But the authorities, which have not officially commented on the contract despite its extensive attention, passed the project off as an intelligence gathering effort in the face of growing insecurity and fundamentalist threat.
In a motion initiated by Ibrahim Gusau, the House said the project will infringe on the privacy of Nigerians and argued that the so-called intelligence gathering, “may not be the solution” to the nation’s security troubles.
The House also questioned the secrecy surrounding the contract award, which lawmakers agreed violated federal financial regulations relating to contract awards, as stipulated in the Fiscal Responsibility Act 2007.
Three committees, namely, Information and Computer Technology, Human Rights, and National Security, are to conduct inquiry into the project and make its findings known in three weeks.

TRAGIC: Generator Fumes, Pregnant Woman, Children Dead?

A middle aged pregnant woman, Chinyere Celestine, and four of her children were suffocated to death due to carbon monoxide that emanated from a power generating set that was left on while they went to bed.
The incident occurred in their enclosed apartment on Wednesday, at their residence, off Goodnews Street, Azikoro suburbs of Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
DailyPost gathered that the father of the children and Chinyere’s husband, identified as Celestine, was said to be in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, when the tragedy occurred.
It was learnt that Celestine’s inability to get through to his wife on the telephone on Wednesday morning aroused his curiosity,which prompted him to call a
After several attempts to wake the victims from sleep, the neighbour was said to have raised the alarm, that compelled other neighbours to force the door open and discovered the victims’ lifeless bodies.
A source, who pleaded anonymity, said, “Chinyere and the four children were confirmed dead at the hospital but two of the children were resuscitated by medical personnel. The bodies of the dead victims had been deposited at the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa.”
However, sympathisers attributed the incident to the persistent power outage that has thrown the state into darkness for over three weeks.
DailyPost gathered that the PHCN transmission lines at Obunagha, Yenagoa, that supply electricity to the state were reported to have been destroyed by a storm.
Police Public Relations Officer, Bayelsa Police Command, Alex Akhigbe, confirmed the death of Chinyere and the four children.

SURPRISING: There Is Nothing Wrong In Selling Human Parts - Suspect

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a grandfather, Mr. Segun Kayode, for allegedly exhuming and selling human parts.
According to the police, the suspect, who works at a cemetery in Epe area of the state, was arrested with a human skull.
Police sources told PUNCH Metro that the suspect sold human parts for a living, adding that he had become notorious in the area for selling human parts.
It was learnt that the suspect was arrested following a report by a resident who saw him displaying a skull for sale.
The grandfather, who could not give his exact age, said he started selling human parts because he was poor and jobless.
He said, “I live at 2,Tungbehin Street, Epe. I have two children and I am a grandfather. I have always been poor all my life because I had no formal or informal education. I used to be a fisherman but when there were no longer fishes in rivers in my area, I became a gardener at Epe Local Government Secretariat
“About four years ago, the LG said they no longer needed my services so I started trimming grass at a cemetery in the area.”
The suspect, who did not deny the allegations, said there was nothing wrong in selling dead people’s parts since the dead never used them.
He said one day, while he was clearing weeds in the cemetery, he noticed a human skull which had been dug up.
He said, “Most times, when a corpse is not buried with a coffin, the possibility of the corpse resurfacing is very high. So, what workers at the cemetery do is to gather some of the corpses and burn them instead of burying them again.
“I realised that this was not a smart thing to do since it would be better to make money from it. The families of these dead people never care about them once they are buried and weeds had taken over the cemetery.”
The suspect said he sold only two corpses while he had on numerous occasions given them out for free.
He said, “I have sold only two human heads. I sold the first one for N1, 000 while I sold the second one for N1, 500. Last week, a resident approached me saying an herbalist needed the head so I got a decomposed head, for him, washed it and put it on a fence to dry.
“A resident saw me and raised the alarm and that was how I was arrested.”
PUNCH Metro had reported last week that five people, including an herbalist, were arrested for selling human parts.
A police source told one of our correspondents that the trend was common in areas where public cemeteries were situated.
“Areas which are not located in the metropolis and have cemeteries have become the hideout for cartels which specialise in sale of human parts. We (police) have reason to believe that some of these human parts dealers also engage in ritual killing,” he said.
The source added that efforts were going on to arrest other human parts sellers in the area.
When contacted on the telephone, the spokesperson for the state police command, Ngozi Braide, confirmed Kayode’s arrest. She said he had been transferred to State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba.

BEWARE: Anti Gay Law Now Live?

Making gay or lesbian advances attracts 10-year imprisonment, according to the law.
The House of Representatives on Thursday approved 14-year imprisonment for persons who contract same-sex marriage in the country.
This was sequel to a clause-by-clause consideration of a bill for an act to prohibit marriage or union entered between persons of same-sex, at the Committee of the Whole.
“Marriage or civil union entered between persons of same gender shall not be solemnised in any place of worship, either church or mosque or any place in Nigeria,” it said.
Introducing the bill, Rep. Albert Sam-Tsokwa (PDP-Taraba) said that it sought to achieve a far reaching objective by outlawing same-sex marriage and provide punishment for offenders.
It also set out a 10-year sentence for “any person who directly or indirectly makes public show of same-sex amorous relationships’’.
“Any persons or group of persons that administers, witnesses, screen and shields the solemnisation of same sex marriage in Nigeria on conviction, will be liable to 10 years imprisonment”.
It would be recalled also that the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, had warned that his country would consider withholding aid from countries that did not recognise gay rights.
In November 2011, the senate approved the bill that would make same-sex marriages punishable by up to 14 years for the couple and 10 for anyone abetting such unions.
The bill is expected to be sent to the senate for concurrence and would only become law after the concurred bill is signed by President Goodluck Jonathan; or should he refuse, his refusal is vetoed by the two chambers of the National Assembly.

REVEALED: Boko Haram, The Hezbollah Connection

By SaharaReporters, New York
Nigerian troops in the Joint   Task Forces in Kano today said that investigations into the discovery of weapon cache found in a home occupied by Lebanese foreign nationals in Kano shows that Boko Haram Islamist militants have connections with the Lebanon-based Hezbollah
A press release signed by the spokesman for the JTF Captain Ikedichi Iweha stated that investigations conducted so far shows that there is a local cell of the Hizbollah in Nigeria.

DEMOCRACY DAY: OBJ, IBB And Co Shun Jonathan?

Former President Obasanjo preferred to be in Jigawa than in Abuja.
When top officials of the various arms of the Nigerian Government gathered on Wednesday to listen to President Goodluck Jonathan present the scorecard of his administration in the last two years, one notable absentee was observed.
The event, held at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, was attended by Nigeria’s top five public officials but one, the fourth citizen by Nigeria’s official hierarchy.
Aminu Tambuwal, the Speaker of the House of Representatives was conspicuously absent at a ceremony attended by Mr. Jonathan, Vice President Namadi Sambo, Senate President David Mark, and the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Mariam Mukhtar.
No reason was given for the speaker’s absence although it was later announced during the programme that he was represented by the Deputy Speaker of the House, Emeka Ihedioha.
Though a member of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Tambuwal has never really been a darling of the ruling party or indeed of the president.
“ ..the joke here (at the presidency) used to be that the Speaker is an APC man in PDP government,” a presidency source told PREMIUM TIMES, saying they were not surprised the speaker was absent.
Mr. Tambuwal’s election as speaker was opposed by both his party and allegedly the presidency; while he got the support of the opposition for his emergence as speaker.
Rumours have also been spread that the speaker is being considered as a presidential candidate of the APC, a merger of Nigeria’s largest four opposition parties, a claim the speaker denied.
However, Mr. Tambuwal’s spokesperson said there was no big deal to his principal’s non-attendance.
“Usually, the Speaker goes to his constituency on a day like this (Democracy Day) to interact with his people, there is no issue at all,” Imam Imam, Mr. Tambuwal’s spokesperson, said.
He said the Speaker left Abuja for Sokoto on Tuesday after the sitting of the House, and has commissioned some projects undertaken by Governor Wammako.
“In any case even the invitation sent, read the House of Reps, and the Deputy Speaker was there to represent the House, so it will be erroneous to assume that the Speaker shunned the event,” Mr. Imam added.
Mr. Tambuwal was, however, not the only major dignitary that shunned the event witnessed by ministers, lawmakers, foreign guests, and others, and broadcast live to millions of Nigerians.
Obasanjo, Babangida, Abdulsalami, Atiku too
At least four former heads of state: Olusegun Obasanjo, Muhammadu Buhari, Ibrahim Babangida, and Abdulsalami Abubakar, and a former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, also shunned the event, which was used by the Jonathan administration to showcase its successes.
PREMIUM TIMES learnt that they were all invited to the event.
While hundreds gathered for the event, Mr. Obasanjo, a leader of the PDP and one of Mr. Jonathan’s main backers in 2011 preferred to attend an event in Jigawa State.
Although no official reason was given for Mr. Obasanjo’s non-attendance in Abuja, he was present as Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa outlined the achievements of his administration in the state. Mr. Lamido, also a member of the ruling party, is seen as a loyalist of Mr. Obasanjo and is believed to be one of the PDP Governors that voted against Jonah Jang, the PDP and presidency’s reportedly backed candidate for the chairmanship of the Nigeria Governors Forum, NGF.
Posters have already been circulated across various Nigerian states of a joint ticket of Mr. Lamido and Rotimi Amaechi for the 2015 presidency, a move reportedly supported by Mr. Obasanjo. Mr. Amaechi, who won the NGF chairmanship election, is currently having a running battle with the presidency and the PDP leadership. He has since been suspended from the ruling party.
The Jigawa event was also attended by Lamido Sanusi, the Governor of the Central Bank, another person who has the backing of the opposition parties. Though serving in a PDP government, when Mr. Sanusi was being honoured with a traditional title in Kano, the event was largely attended by opposition leaders including Mr. Buhari and Mr. Tinubu.
Mr. Sanusi also preferred to attend the Jigawa event than attend one by Mr. Jonathan even though several achievements of the economic team of which he is a core member were being highlighted at the Abuja event.
Two other former military heads of state, Ibrahim Babangida and Abdusalami Abubakar, were also absent at the event, attended by three other past Nigerian leaders: Yakubu Gowon, Shehu Shagari, and Ernest Shonekan.
Mr. Babangida challenged Mr. Jonathan for the PDP presidential ticket in 2011 but eventually lost to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar in a northern consensus arrangement before the latter lost the party ticket to Mr. Jonathan. He eventually declared his support in the presidential elections for Nuhu Ribadu, the candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria in 2011.
Mr. Babangida also recently encouraged Mr. Tambuwal, the speaker, to run for “higher office.”
On his part, Mr. Abubakar, the former head of state, who is said to be a cousin to Mr. Babangida, is known to always share the same position with the latter and has also not been seen attending presidential meetings and events.
Another notable absentee was Atiku Abubakar, also a member of the PDP, and the loser in the PDP presidential primaries of 2011. Mr. Abubakar recently warned that the PDP faced disintegration with the various crisis it is facing.
Buhari expectedly absent
Of the prominent absentees, perhaps the least surprising is that of Mr. Buhari, a perennial challenger for the office of president.
Mr. Buhari was the runner-up in the 2011 elections to Mr. Jonathan; and had earlier contested in 2003 and 2007.
A major critic and outspoken opponent of the Jonathan administration, it would probably have been more of a surprise if the former general attended the meeting.
When Mr. Jonathan was first appointed acting President in 2010, Mr. Buhari attended meetings of the National Council of State at the presidential villa, but stopped attending the meetings or even going to the villa after Mr. Jonathan was announced as the winner of the April 2011 presidential election which Mr. Buhari as candidate of the opposition Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, challenged up to the Supreme Court.

5 Reasons Why Ladies Prefer Dating Married Men

Although these stereotypes are popular, the truth is that the other woman may have a variety of agendas fueling her behavior.

Depending on her age, social class and marital status, she might be cárousing with another woman's man for several reasons other than love. Below are the top five.

#1 The séx is hot.

Just like a lot of men, many women crave séx. As a result, when some women meet a man that they have an undeniable séxual attraction to, they rush forward and pouncé. Although it's not always admitted to, this is one reason why some women just can't let a married man go. They love the séx and, as a result, refuse to end the relationship.

#2 She doesn't think it's hurting anyone.

Have you ever heard the saying 'what you don't know won't hurt you?' This is a statement that some females who play the role of the other woman live by. They feel that as long as nobody knows (especially the wife) what they're doing, it's okay. As a result, this woman will never stop seeing the married man until things blow up.

#3 She loves the money.

Some women barter séx for money. This exchange is as old as the bible. As a result, if a man has a lot of cash that he's willing to spend on her, the other woman will go for it without any regret. It's not that she want's to hurt anyone or even be the other woman, she just needs help paying her bills.

#4 She believes all men are dogs.

You'd think that a woman who thinks so lowly of all men wouldn't wind up in a dirty affair. However, this idea is wrong. Because she thinks all men are dogs, she expects very little from them - including faithfulness. So it seems natural to her that a married man would cheat since that's what all men do anyway. If you ask her about the wife, nine times out of ten she'll tell you about the number of times she's been cheated on by a man. It's her justification for her actions.

#5 She needs to feel powerful.

This point is where I believe Monica Lewinsky falls. Sléeping with the President of the United States probably lifted her self-esteem and made her feel powerful. It's a trap women fall into who like to sleep with high-profile men. They get their energy and life from an accomplished man instead of finding other ways to build themselves up. In conclusion, the other woman might just be holding onto a married man for reasons outside of love. She has her own agenda and unless it's upset in some type of way, she will never let go.

LUCKY: Governor Obi And Co Escape Plane Crash?

Gov. Obi others escape plane crash
What could have turned to be an air mishap yesterday was avoided by the experience of the Arik pilot of Flight W 3788 conveying over 100 passengers from Lagos to Asaba in Delta State.
Daily Sun gathered that the flight which was supposed to take off at 8:30 am, was delayed in Lagos on account of bad weather. Though travellers had boarded the flight, after about two hours inside the plane, they were asked to go back to the departure lounge as the aircraft could not take off due to what the pilot called “terribly bad weather at Asaba.”  After about three hours, the flight was boarded again because weather reports showed improvement within the internationally-accepted landing standards. By the time it was boarded again, many people who sensed the situation as warning from Providence, had already cancelled their trips.
On getting to Asaba, the weather became bad again. Several attempts at landing proved difficult. Not wanting to take chances, the pilot promptly returned to Lagos. On reaching Lagos, the weather had already gone very  bad by   aviation standard with yesterday’s downpour. The plane had to circle around for hours amid dwindling aviation fuel. It finally landed at 4:45 pm amid sighs of relief from traumatized passengers who clapped in jubilation. The  pilot, Captain Sandy Miller, merely told passengers to thank their God for His  mercies when they got home.
Speaking to Aviation correspondents at the Domestic Wing of Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja, Gov. Obi, who travelled to South Africa on Sunday and came back yesterday to Lagos, said he was determined to make the flight to Asaba en route Awka because he did not like staying outside Awka more days  than necessary.
Moreover, he said that he had already planned to do so many things at home yesterday. When he was persistently asked those things, he reluctantly said that he had projects to inspect such as the progress of work at Upper-Iweka, the drainage challenge at Ogidi as well as the site for the construction of  Agulu Lake Hotel Resort, which, according to him, would take off in a matter of days.
Obi said that following discussions with some investors in South Africa that requested land to build their facility in Anambra and some existing ones that want to expand, that he planned to visit some identified sites for consideration. “Moreso, I have planned to treat many files in the night,” Obi said. On whether he was unsettled, the governor laughed and said that nothing again should be frightening to a person that governs a state like Anambra. Moreover, he said, he was always at peace with His God and fellow human beings to worry over the vicissitudes of life.
Speaking on the experience, one of the passengers, Donald Emeh, a lawyer, said that as a frequent flyer, he was used to such situations. He nevertheless gave glory to God for safe-landing at last. He jokingly described how those on board turned into emergency prayer warrriors,  casting and binding the spirit of plane crash.
The Majority Leader of Delta State of Assembly, Hon. Chief Igbuyo, who along other government officials, said the incident was instructive on why one should be prepared at all times.

UNBELIEVABLE: Student Gang Raped Girl Through Magical Ring?

Two young men have been remanded in Agodi Prison by an Ibadan Magistrate Court for allegedly using a magical ring to abduct and gang-rape a 19-year-old secondary school girl in Ibadan.
The two suspects, according to a police source, were charged with conspiracy, rape and stealing of a Blackberry phone belonging to the victim.
The rape victim said she closed from school at Wofun Iyana Church, and was accosted by the suspects who insisted she should follow them to their residence. But, when she refused, one of them allegedly used a magical ring to hit her on the chest and she was unconscious.
“There is a boy who was not my boy friend. He was a student in that school about two years ago. His name is Biola. He had wanted to date me several times which I politely turned down. Just last Wednesday, when I closed from school, Biola came to me in company of two unidentified boys and said his mum wanted to see me.
“‘I asked him what led to the invitation by his mum. I then told him I would not go. Then, one of the two other guys who had a ring on his hand hit me on the chest and I was unconscious. They took me to the residence of one of the two boys and raped me.
“Before raping me, they gave me alcoholic drink and after the crime had been committed, they gave me ‘covenant water’ threatening me that I would die if I told anybody of the act.”
A top policeman who claimed anonymity because he was not instructed to speak, confirmed the story, saying: “On May 15 at 0815 hours, one Adekola living on Akanbi Street, Molade area of Ibadan reported that his younger sister and a secondary school student went to school and did not return home. All efforts to trace her proved abortive.
“Then about 23:00hours, an unanimous caller called through the victim’s GSM number and identified himself as kidnapper and demanded N6,000. The DCO led other policemen and the victim was rescued.”
She was unconscious and was rushed to a nearby hospital. She later narrated how she was kidnapped and gang-raped by three persons. Two arrests have been made while the third suspect is still at large. The two suspects have been charged to court.”

INTERESTING: Rotimi Fashakin Is A Brainless Ignoramus?

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity,  Reuben Abati, has described the spokesperson of the opposition Congress for Progressive Change as a medieval-era ignoramus and brainless individual.
In a statement Tuesday night, Mr. Abati was unsparing of Mr. Fashakin who had earlier issued a statement condemning President Goodluck Jonathan for missing his speaking slot at the just-concluded African Union summit in Addis Ababa.
The CPC spokesperson had also accused the president of instigating the crisis in the Nigeria Governors’ Forum.
But in responding to Mr. Fashakin’s criticism of his boss, an ostensibly angry Mr. Abati poured invectives on the CPC spokesperson  describing him as a silly, hideous and second rate character whose family should be ashamed of.
He described him as a disruptive character with a mental indolence that has left him with a deep character flaw.
Read the full statement below.
We are dealing with such hideous and second rate characters in Nigeria’s public space, belonging to the ACN and the CPC, and that other would-be disaster-prone mongrel called APC that they won’t even respect the truth. The prize for being silly in this regard must go to one Rotimi Fashakin who describes himself as the National Publicity Secretary of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC). He is an arm-chair critic per excellence and a medieval-era ignoramus.
In a release titled “President Jonathan’s AU summit gaffe” (May 28) Rotimi displayed such habitual indolence and brainlessness that his heirs must be eternally ashamed of, and which I consider offensive and needlessly disruptive. His subject is the just-ended AU @ 50 summit in Addis Ababa.
I invite more cerebral and decent persons to consider the facts. President Jonathan as the leader of the Nigerian delegation to the AU summit in Addis Ababa and the 50th anniversary of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) indeed put up a sterling performance, using the opportunity of the trip to further promote Nigeria’s interests and to strengthen Nigeria’s relationships with other countries. He held bilateral meetings with the UN Secretary General and the leaders of Jamaica, Egypt, Swaziland, Ghana, Cote D’Ivoire. He granted interviews to the media, local and international. He also participated in a special session on HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis, at which he invited other world leaders to the Abuja+12 conference to be hosted in Nigeria, mid-June. President Jonathan is an accomplished diplomat and a responsible leader under whose watch, Nigeria’s foreign policy process and international relations have been strengthened with commendable results.
Fashakin, failing to do minimal research that any right-thinking person would attempt, jumps to the conclusion that President Jonathan missed his slot at the AU and that nobody represented him. This is more than 48 hours after I had issued a statement indicating that no slot was missed. Fashakin must be so busy he doesn’t even bother to read the news. No slot was missed because no country was under any compulsion to speak. Any country that wished to make a statement indicated the interest to do so, by pressing the button at its own convenience. Nigeria had indicated an interest to speak, but the President needed to attend an urgent ECOWAS meeting on the Lagos-Abidjan Highway, to be attended by five West African countries, to take a report by the Nigerian Minister of Works who is the chair of the regional inter-Ministerial body on the proposed Lagos-Abidjan Highway. I have since circulated the conclusions of that meeting.
While President Jonathan was attending that meeting, Ambassador Olugbenga Ashiru, the Minister of Foreign Affairs presented our statement to the OAU at 50 on President Jonathan’s behalf. I have also since circulated the full text of that statement. In other words, Nigeria’s voice was heard, loud and clear. Let it be noted that President Jonathan’s attendance of a meeting on the sidelines of the AU Summit was perfectly in order, and he attended quite a number, just as Minister Ashiru was not the only Foreign Minister who spoke on behalf of a President at the Summit. So where did Fashakin get his information from that nobody represented Nigeria?
The nature of his mental indolence is understandable. In this attempt to pull President Jonathan down at all costs, lies have become standard stuff, mischief a major commodity, and indecency a character flaw. President Jonathan does not owe anyone an apology for serving Nigeria diligently and truthfully. Fashakin’s reference to an incident in Australia is also wrong-headed because the allegation is false. In fact, in Australia, President Jonathan met with a broad range of investors in the mining sector and that has resulted in huge investments in the Nigerian mining sector. I consider the insinuation about inebriation, in Fashakin’s statement, amplified by his paid agents in other fora, as utterly disrespectful and foolish. They can’t certainly be talking about a President who is a well-focused man of achievement. By the same token, I consider the reference to Governor Rotimi Amaechi and the Nigeria Governors’ Forum in that statement as a red herring. Again, I advise Fashakin to read the newspapers so he can be abreast of developments, the only way he can get close to being an effective spokesperson. I had made it clear that President Jonathan has no hand in the Governors Forum crisis, and we stand by that position.
Our case is not rested. When next Fashakin comes to the public with unintelligent thoughts about President Jonathan, it shall remain our duty to continue to remind him of the need to think before talking.

2013 UTME: Why 16,000 JAMB Results Were Cancelled?

The reason 16,000 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, results were cancelled by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, was on Wednesday given by the Minister of Education, Prof. Ruquayyatu Rufa’i.
The Minister categorically said it was because of examination malpractices
by the candidates.
Rufa’i spoke through Mr. Julius Ameh, in Abuja, during the presentation of the Teachers’ Guide for the teaching of the National Values Curriculum, NVC, in Basic Education, which was funded by the Independent Corrupt Practices and
other Related Offences Commission, ICPC.
She said, ”We shall be resolute in our decisions as there shall be no sacred cows. Nobody, no matter how highly placed, will be allowed to get away with
the breach of the law or perpetration of corruption and evil in our colleges and tertiary institutions.”
Rufa’i said the inclusion of the guide into
the numerous literature available in the education sector, especially on corruption and value orientation, was an indication of the premium which the administration placed on education and transparency in the conduct of government business.
She said, “It is also an eloquent testimony of the present administration’s determination to heal the wounds of the past quickly, put the ugly past behind and use the new NVC to stretch hands of fellowship to aggrieved Nigerians for complete reconciliation.
“The Nigerian child must be encouraged and taught that integrity pays. His self respect must be restored and his growth process rewarded through mentoring and parental care.” – she added.
Chairman of ICPC, Ekpo Nta, in his address, said that the NVC was applicable at all levels of education and was designed to expose the Nigerian child to a value-based curriculum that
incorporates ethical values into academic studies from the early years to adulthood.
“The curriculum has been infused into subjects and courses at basic, post-basic and teacher-education levels. It has also been infused into the curriculum of mass literacy and non-formal education,” he said.
