(Photo)Capenter rapes 15 year old girl at gun point,blames the devil

The Enugu State Police Command has commenced a full-scale investigation into an alleged rape of a 15-year-old minor at gun point.

In a statement signed by the command’s spokesman, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, in Enugu on Tuesday,the suspect, a carpenter, Casmir Eze, from Umugoji Orba in Udenu Local Government Area, on Sunday at about 2 a.m., gained entrance into the compound of the victim by scaling the fence. 

It said that the suspect, thereafter, forced the victim to open the door or risk being killed. 

“When the victim, who was warned not to shout, opened the door the suspect who allegedly was covering his face with scarf went into the room and allegedly pointed a gun at the victim. “The suspect then commanded her to switch off the light and thereafter forcefully pounced on the victim and had carnal knowledge of her.

“Angered by this and unknown to the suspect that he was identified by the victim, the victim reported to her relations who assisted her to report to the police. “

This led to the police arresting the suspect, who is now helping the police operatives in their investigation into the matter,’’ it said. The statement said that the suspect admitted committing the offence and maintained that it was the devil that pushed him into the act.
“I did not know what came over me, although I have been targeting how to get the girl since and no way, hence I had to come through this way,’’ the suspect said


Woman, nurse arrested while aborting 12-year-old’s pregnancy in Lagos

A 12-year-old girl, identified only as Favour, has been rescued by the police in the Mafoluku, Oshodi area of Lagos State, after her aunt and the husband allegedly took her there to get rid of a pregnancy.

According to PUNCH Metro, Favour who was discovered to be four months pregnant, had been allegedly raped several times by her aunt’s husband, identified as Johnbull Dike, in January 2016 before she conceived.

Johnbull, a father of three, and Happiness, however, found out that Favour was pregnant in February, after which they bundled her to stay with their trader friend in Mafoluku, to hide the evil deed.

However, the woman was said to have returned Favour to the couple in April, saying she could not 
afford to take care of her.

PUNCH Metro learnt that Johnbull and Happiness, who lived on Brown Street, subsequently took Favour to the nurse to get rid of the pregnancy. The girl was allegedly taken to the nurse on Sunmola Street, Mafoluku, on Wednesday, May 4.

however, some residents gave a tip-off to a child rights’ group, Child Protection Network, which involved the police.

It was learnt that while Favour was put in police’s care, a manhunt was launched for Johnbull, a tricycle rider, who fled the area after the police rescued the girl.

Dike’s wife and the nurse who was caught during the abortion has been arrested by the Akinpelu Police Division.

The matter was also reported to the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team in Alausa.

When Punch visited the area, a worker with the Child Protection Network, Ebenezer Omejalile, said Favour did not inform her aunt about the rape, because the suspect had allegedly threatened to kill her if she did.

He said:

“The case was brought to my attention by a community development committee secretary in Oshodi, Mr. Mamora. The victim was raped and impregnated by her aunt’s husband.
“I went to see the girl at the place where the aunt had taken her with the connivance of a nurse to abort the pregnancy. The girl underwent a scan before the abortion. It was a failed process because she began to bleed at the nurse’s place. The police were informed on that Wednesday and the two women were arrested, while Johnbull fled.
“The policemen took Favour to a proper hospital to get rid of the remaining foetus. As it is, the suspect is on the run because he knew that the girl is with the police.”

At the police station, Happiness said that her husband had fled from the house since the day of her arrest.

She said:

“He has not called me since that day. His phone numbers are also switched off.”

A police source told PUNCH Metro that Happiness had been granted bail because her last child had an infection and needed her attention.

She said:

“Our investigation shows that the nurse is a quack. She is not trained and she proceeded to do abortion for a 12-year-old girl. The suspect’s wife has a two-year-old son who is being treated for an infection. So, she has been granted bail.
“She did not deny that they wanted to abort the pregnancy. The story they painted to the nurse was that the girl was raped by an unidentified hoodlum.”

Punch also sighted Favour at the station before she was taken to the state command headquarters in Ikeja.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, adding that the police were on the trail of Dike.

She said:

“There is a case of defilement against Johnbull. His wife and the nurse have been arrested for aborting a pregnancy. The Commissioner of Police has ordered that the case be transferred to the Gender Unit of the command.
“The suspect is on the run, but efforts are on to arrest him. Meanwhile, the wife and the nurse will both be charged to court.”

'its good to serve God' - Dino Melaye says as he weeps in church

Senator Otunba Dino Melaye, on Sunday stunned the congregation at the Apostolic Church Nigeria, Oke-Ayo (Iluafon) Assembly in his home town, Ayetero-Gbede, Kogi State, when he narrated how he was tempted to seek diabolical means during preparations for the 2015 general election.
He rolled on the floor of the church, wept and thanked God for His mercy to the admiration of the congregation.

According to him, 
“When I was contesting election, some people, among them my supporters, came with various advises. In fact, somebody said that I should go to the seven local government areas and fetch the soil. He said that was the way to my victory and I laughed at his ignorance. I rejected it because I’ve vowed that I will never seek diabolical means to achieve power. It is good to serve God,” he said.

According to him, there were several temptations for him to ascertain his fate at the election which he contested on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Melaye who is representing Kogi West, made the revelations during a special thanksgiving service and empowerment programme for youths in the area, attended by 26 Senators and all traditional rulers in the area.

1.5 millions more Nigerians became unemployed in 2016

The Nigerian Bureau of Statistics (NBS) has released its unemployment and underemployment report and it noted that another 1.5 million Nigerians became unemployed in the first quarter of 2016.

In the report, released Friday, the NBS said NIgeria’s unemployment rate grew from 10.4 percent in the last quarter in 2015 to 12.1 percent in the first quarter of 2016.
This is remarkable because the numbers had been stable in the third and fourth quarters of 2015.
It had more detail on the composition and power of the labour force.

“In Q1 2016, the labour force population (i.e. those within the working age population willing, able and actively looking for work) increased to 78.4 million from 76.9million in q4 2015,” the report said.
“This means an additional 1,528,647 economically active persons within 15-64 entered the labour force i.e. were able and willing and actively looking for work between January 1 and March 31 2016.
“Within the same period, the total number in full time employment (did any form of work for at least 40 hours) decreased by 528,148 persons or 0.97%.

“This consists of people who lost their jobs and were either forced or for various reasons chose to move from full time employment to underemployment.
“Within the same period, the number of unemployed in the labour force, increased by 1,449,18 persons (increase of 518,000 between Q3 and Q4 2015) between Q4 2015 and Q1 2016.”
The report also sounds the alarm about youth unemployment, which has risen to 42.24 percent. 15.2million youths are unemployed in Nigeria.

“Accordingly, out of a total youth labour force of 38.2 million (representing 48.7% of total labour force in Nigeria of 78.48mn), a total of 15.2mn of them were either unemployed or underemployed in Q1 2016 representing a youth unemployment rate of 42.24%,” the report said.

I will make sure the rescued Chibok girl, returns to school - Buhari

Amina Ali Nkeki, the Chibok schoolgirl who was rescued Tuesday after two years in Boko Haram’s captivity, will have the opportunity to return to school and live her dreams, President Muhammadu Buhari said Thursday after meeting with the girl at the presidential villa in Abuja.

Amina, who was one of nearly 300 girls abducted by the militants in 2014, will receive the best medical, psychological and emotional care that the Nigerian Government can afford, Mr. Buhari said.
He said since nothing could be done to salvage the past, the rest of her life will take a completely different course.

“The continuation of Amina’s education, so abruptly disrupted, will definitely be a priority of the federal government. Amina must be enabled to go back to school. No girl in Nigeria should be put through the brutality of forced marriage. Every girl has the right to an education and a life choice,” President Buhari said.
“Although we cannot do anything to reverse the horrors of her past, the federal government can and will do everything possible to ensure that the rest of her life takes a completely different course. Amina will receive the best care that the Nigerian government can afford.
“We will ensure that she gets the best medical, psychological, emotional and whatever other care she requires to make a full recovery and be reintegrated fully into society” the President said adding that he can only imagine all the girl who was taken away at 17 years had to go through at such an early stage of her life,” he said.
Amina arrived at the presidential villa, veiled and escorted by her brother, mother, the the National Security Adviser, Mohammed Monguno, and the Borno state governor, Kashim Shettima.
According to her mother, who spoke at the brief ceremony in the president’s office, Amina is one of the two surviving children of the family. Her father died from the trauma of losing his daughter.

The 19-year-old girl has already been examined by medical personnel from the government and nongovernmental organisations. Trauma experts from UNICEF have also met with her.
Mr. Buhari said the Federal Government will assist the Murtala Muhammed Foundation, which has already been providing support to families of the missing Chibok girls and which runs a trauma and counselling centre in Kano.
They will also be involved in ongoing work with Amina, monitoring her progress and highlighting any additional support she requires, he said.
He assured that his administration would continue to do all it can to rescue the remaining Chibok girls who are still in Boko Haram captivity.

“Amina’s rescue gives us new hope, and offers a unique opportunity for vital information” he said.
Gov. Shettima commended the president for his patience, persistence and doggedness in ensuring the restoration of peace in the north east.
He said one year ago nobody could venture out of Maiduguri beyond 15 kilometres, as it was on the verge of falling into the hands of Boko Haram.
He said no local government area in Borno or in Yobe or Adamawa is under the control of the insurgent group.

African China moves into hair dressing business

Nothing much has been heard from talented music artiste, Chinagorom Onuoha aka African China in a while. The singer, famed for phenomenal tracks such as ‘Mr President’ ‘If You Love Somebody,’ and ‘Crisis’ went under the radar after he was embroiled in a rape scandal in the United Kingdom about 10 years ago.

Though he has released some songs after that ugly incident, they did not record the kind of success his first tracks attracted.

The Ajegunle-born singer has however decided to tow a different path business-wise. He is now the proprietor of a hair salon known as Chyna Town Unisex Beauty Salon, which is located at Festac, Lagos.We can only hope he hasn’t finally given up on his music career.

EFCC seizes N860m mansion from ex-Air Force chief

A mansion allegedly belonging to a former Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Mohammed Umar (retd) has been sealed off by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Punch reports that their correspondent, who visited the house located on 1853 Deng Xiano Ping Street, off Mahathir Mohammed Street, Asokoro Extension, Abuja, observed stickers bearing the EFCC logo pasted on the gate.

According to the EFCC, the house is worth about N860m.

The EFCC had alleged before an Abuja Federal High Court that:

“while being the Chief of Air Staff, Nigerian Air Force, between March and April 2012, in Abuja, within the jurisdiction of the court did the accused (Umar) use the United States dollars equivalent of the sum of N860,000,000 (Eight hundred and sixty million naira) removed from the accounts of the Nigerian Air Force to purchase for yourself a property lying and situate at plot 1853 Deng Xiano Ping Street, off Mahathir Mohammed street, Asokoro extension Abuja.”

The anti-graft agency had also alleged that Umar removed another N700m from the accounts of the NAF to purchase a property at 14, Vistula Close, off Panama Street, Maitama, Abuja, while N500m was removed from the accounts of the NAF to purchase a property comprising a four-bedroomed duplex at Road 3B, Street 2, Mabushi Ministers Hill, Abuja.

However, their correspondent, who visited the Maitama and Mabushi mansions allegedly belonging to the retired officer, observed that the properties had not been sealed by the anti-graft agency.

Security guards at the Mabushi mansion, however, confirmed that the property belonged to Umar.

The ex-CAF, who was arraigned for an alleged N7bn scam, had denied all the allegations levelled against him.

Meanwhile, Punch's correspondent learnt on Saturday that there was tension within the Nigerian Navy as the EFCC commenced fresh investigations into the three arms of the Armed Forces.

The Federal Ministry of Finance had on Thursday directed the anti-graft agency to investigate the payroll of the military.

The ministry said the investigation followed revelations in the course of the trial of a former Chief of Defence Staff, retired Air Marshal Alex Badeh, at the Federal High Court, Abuja, that N558.2m was diverted monthly from the NAF accounts into private pockets.

The EFCC had since January been investigating only the air force and the Nigerian Army.

However, with the new directive, it means that the Nigerian Navy would be included in the EFCC probe.

A source at the EFCC said:

“We were investigating only the army and the air force because they were the ones given funds to fight Boko Haram. Since the battle has only been in the North-East where there is no piracy, the navy was not really involved in the arms deal and we therefore did not focus on them during investigations.
“However, with this new directive, we will go after the navy. We are aware that part of the NIMASA fraud also involved some navy personnel. We will now do a full-scale investigation.”

See Ogun state burglar who defecates & disappears after robbing his victims

A suspected burglar simply identified as Dasuki shocked the police in Ogun State over the weekend when he led detectives to recover two truckloads of assorted goods he allegedly stole from various shops and houses in Mowe area on the Lagos Ibadan Expressway.

Acording to theNewTelegraph, the suspect, a native of Badagry in Lagos State, was initially apprehended by a vigilance group employed by a Community Development Association at Gbegira,
in Mowe, in Ogun State when he dropped the second of his two Ghana -Must -Go bags full of handsets and bales of clothes at about 3:00am.

He was temporarily detained by the vigilance men to enable them arrest other suspects, but he bolted away, and was given a hot chase until he got stuck in a swamp. He was rearrested and handed over to the police at the Redeemed Camp Division.

Explaining his method of operation, a source said when he touches every building with a charm, all occupants goes to slumber, and become insensitive to anything happening in the house. He bores a whole on the wall, steals every valuable thing, defecates on the floor and leaves a knife on the spot before disappearing into thin air.

According to an official of the Development Association, detectives moved to the suspect’s house where his wife and mother in-law were sighted. But police watched in utter amazement several stolen items which were on the verge of being sold off to receivers of stolen goods.

“During the raid of his house, the police discovered over 56 assorted handsets, about 10 plasma television sets, desk and lap top computers, bales of clothing materials stolen from various shops and homes in the area,” the CDA official who pleaded anonymity said.

One of the victims, a mother was said to have been burgled a day after she took delivery in her shops of bales of lace and Ankara materials. She allegedly wept uncontrollably upon discovery of the theft the following morning.

The items were moved to the station in two patrol vehicles while the police continued their investigations into the matter. During interrogation, the suspect confessed to stealing the items, usually at night and on Sunday when homeowners must have gone to church.

“I normally bore holes on the wall to enable me enter into the houses and defecate there after each operation,” he said in pidgin. “I act alone, because I do not belong to a gang.
When get the items, I keep them and sell them off,” he said.

The suspect was believed to have perfected his crime with the assistance of a charm said to have been given to him by herbalist who made him invincible.

But the charm allegedly failed, thereby making him vulnerable to arrest. Interestingly, the suspect has been assisting owners of the stolen items who thronged the division to claim them. On one occasion, he told the police that he stole 12 bales of clothes stolen from the shop when their owners arrived.

In another instance when the owner of 36 of the entire handsets visited the station, he explained to him while he produced 34.

“When I burgled the shop, I actually stole 36 handsets. I kept 34 in a bag and two others in my pocket, but the two fell off when I was trying to escape in the cover of darkness,” he said.

According to a source close to the Divisional Police Officer, SP Martins Olaiya, the suspect has been helping the police with investigation and will soon be charged to court. Ogun State Police Spokesman, Mr. Muyiwa Adejobi said he was yet to be briefed on the arrest.

VP Osibanjo explains the reason for increase in fuel price; says the problem is foreign exchange

The Vice president, Osibanjo has explained the reason for the recent increase in fuel price. He said it's more of an exchage problem more than a subsidy removal issue

Read the interesting article below

Fellow Citizens: I have read the various observations about the fuel pricing regime and the attendant issues generated. All certainly have strong points. The most important issue of course is how to shield the poor from the worst effects of the policy. I will hopefully address that in another note

Permit me an explanation of the policy. First, the real issue is not a removal of subsidy. At $40 a barrel there isn’t much of a subsidy to remove. In any event, the President is probably one of the most convinced pro-subsidy advocates. What happened is as follows: our local consumption of fuel is almost entirely imported.

The NNPC exchanges crude from its joint venture share to provide about 50% of local fuel consumption. The remaining 50% is imported by major and independent marketers. These marketers up until three months ago sourced their foreign exchange from the Central Bank of Nigeria at the official rate.

However, since late last year, independent marketers have brought in little or no fuel because they have been unable to get foreign exchange from the CBN. The CBN simply did not have enough. (In April, oil earnings dipped to $550 million. The amount required for fuel importation alone is about $225million!) .

Meanwhile, NNPC tried to cover the 50% shortfall by dedicating more export crude for domestic consumption. Besides the short term depletion of the Federation Account, which is where the FG and States are paid from, and further cash-call debts pilling up, NNPC also lacked the capacity to distribute 100% of local consumption around the country. Previously, they were responsible for only about 50%. (Partly the reason for the lingering scarcity).

We realised that we were left with only one option. This was to allow independent marketers and any Nigerian entity to source their own foreign exchange and import fuel. We expect that foreign exchange will be sourced at an average of about N285 to the dollar, (current interbank rate). They would then be restricted to selling at a price between N135 and N145 per litre.

We expect that with competition, more private refineries, and NNPC refineries working at full capacity, prices will drop considerably. Our target is that by Q4 2018 we should be producing 70% of our fuel needs locally. At the moment even if all the refineries are working optimally they will produce just about 40% of our domestic fuel needs.

You will notice that I have not mentioned other details of the PPRA cost template. I wanted to focus on the cost component largely responsible for the substantial rise, namely foreign exchange. This is therefore not a subsidy removal issue but a foreign exchange problem, in the face of dwindling earnings.

Oil workers demand N90k minimum wage following increase in the price of petrol

In the light of the increase in the price of petrol from N86.50 to N145 per litre, oil workers in the country have called on the federal government to increase the new minimum wage from N18,000 to N90,000.While commending the Federal Government for removing subsidy on petrol, they said that they would push for a new minimum wage demand of N90, 000.
In joint statement issued by he National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association, they said .

“With the new pump price of N145 per litre, government must speed up the negotiation process for a new minimum wage of N90, 000 to cushion the effect of the envisaged inflation. As the price of fuel increases, there should also be an increment in workers’ salary as the old minimum wage of N18, 000 has no effect again,’’ they stated

Four students escape death as two-storeyed building collapses in Illorin

Four students of a secondary school in the Alagbado area of Ilorin, Kwara State, escaped death on Wednesday after a two-storeyed building under construction collapsed on them.
Sources said one of the teachers of the students, one Muritala, had brought them to the building on Opeyemi Street, in the Saw Mill area of Ilorin when the building collapsed at about 9am.

It was learnt that the students were quickly rescued and taken to a nearby building, where water was poured on them.
An eyewitness, who declined to give his name, said, “The teacher is a son of the owner of the building. The teacher is in the habit of taking the students to the building site for menial jobs. The students were rescued and taken to a nearby building where water was poured on them.
“Muritala also took the four male students through the back door after they were calm enough and took them back to school.”
It was gathered that students were usually brought to the building as a form of punishment.Our correspondent sighted the school uniforms of the students, – yellow stripped shirts and aqua green shorts – under the rubbles.
