Dad offers to sell son for N5m in Nasarawa

Officials of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Nasarawa State have apprehended a middle-aged man, Ayuba John, for allegedly attempting to sell his son, Solomon, for N5 million.

The NSCDC Commandant, Alhaji Mohammed Gidado Fari, yesterday paraded John and a suspected rapist at the command headquarters in Lafia.

Fari said John was arrested on Tuesday behind GSM village in Lafiia.

The commandant examined that the command deployed its intelligence officers when it got information that the suspect was trying to sell his child.

He said his officers pretended to be buyers and negotiated with the man and agreed at a price of N5 million.

When asked how he wanted to be paid, John, according to Fari, demanded payment in cash.

The commandant disclosed that it was at that point that the officers established what his described as devilish intention of the suspect.

He added that the suspect was immediately apprehended when he brought some bags to receive the payment.

Fari disclosed that the suspect had earlier sold one of his children to ritual killers in Oweri, Imo State.

The suspect was also allegedly caught by his wife sleeping with his daughter at home.

The commandant said the suspect confessed committing the crime during interrogation.

After his arrest, John reportedly told his interrogators that he wanted to sell his son to boost his financial status.

Fari said the suspect would be handed over to the police for prosecution.

The commandant, who reiterated the determination of the command to continually fight crime in the state, cautioned residents to be peaceful and law-abiding.

Family drags uncle’s corpse to insurance company to prove he’s dead

This South African man is definitely not resting in peace.

Outraged family members say they were forced to drag in the corpse of their uncle, Sifiso Justice Mhlongo, after an insurance company demanded proof he was dead. The grieving family members filmed the ghastly scene, and the footage has gone viral, reports the New York Post.

The insurance company, Old Mutual, allegedly refused to pay out on Mhlongo’s death benefits, saying there were problems with the paperwork, the Daily Mail reports.

But the nine-day delay meant that the family had to put off important tribal rites for Mhlongo, and that they were out nearly $2,200 in death benefits.

Fed up, the relatives resorted to bringing in the cold, dead proof. In the video, they’re seen carrying a body bag into the company’s office in KwaZulu-Natal province.

The video made its way to Twitter, where users around the country lamented the family’s desperate measure and called out Old Mutual’s alleged actions. An activist’s original tweet of the video has garnered thousands of retweets, with outraged replies.

“I am traumatised by this. Must have taken a lot for this family to do this with their dead,” wrote @HBMZulu.

Old Mutual responded with a tweet of their own, saying the incident was “isolated but regrettable.”

“This has been most unsettling and we are sympathetic toward the family during this difficult time,” the company tweeted. “We can confirm that the claim was paid. Due to the sensitive nature of this matter, we will continue engaging directly with the family.”

I target mature women for sex, money, says suspect

I target mature women for sex, money, says suspect

Asuspected cultist, Chuks Emmanuel, described by police as, ‘most wanted serial rapist in Egbeda’ has been arrested.

Emmanuel was arrested by policemen from Area F Police Command, Ikeja, over allegations of rape, fraud and blackmail.

The suspect had been on Police Wanted List for months and was arrested last week in a hotel. Police sources alleged that Emmanuel used to lure his victims to hotel rooms, where he would then subject them to all sorts of blackmail after having sex with them.

Police said that whenever he was having sex with these women, he would secretly film them, and then later used it to extort money from them.

Emmanuel denied rape and blackmail, stressing that he only outsmarted the women.

He further explained: “I came to Lagos a few months ago and things became too tough. When I could no longer bear the hunger, I thought of how to survive. I thought of getting women to have sex with me and then blackmail them. I thought of the most vulnerable. I discovered that the best targets were matured single ladies. I opened a Facebook account with the name Dr. Chibuzor, MD/ CEO Health Wellbeing Therapy. I started sending friend requests to ladies on the Facebook. My efforts paid off as single and matured ladies started accepting my requests. I sent friend request to those I suspected were lonely. It is usually from chatting that a relationship develops into love and affection.

“When I gain their confidence, I’ll request to meet with them in three choice hotels. To make them think I’m a ‘big boy,’ I would tell them that my boy will come to pick them. I’ll go to pick them, pretending to be an errand boy to the ‘big man’ that invited them.”

Emmanuel explained that before then, he would have paid for a room. Posing as errand boy, he would lead the victim to the room, ask her to relax and wait for his master.

Emmanuel narrated: “After about two and half hours, I will return to the room, to inform her that ‘my master’ suddenly left Lagos on an important assignment. It is at that moment that I would start working on their brains; telling her how I could assist if she agrees to have sex with me. They usually agree, and after sex, I’ll then demand money from them, which they willing give me.

“I think they succumbed to me out of fear and because they needed sex. There was one that surprised me the most. Immediately I touched her breasts, she started screaming that I should not waste time in ‘doing it.’ This woman has been sex starved for long. She is now claiming that I raped her. I did not rape any of my victims. They willingly gave their bodies to me. They also gave me money for reasons best known to them. Maybe, they were afraid I would expose their nude photographs on the internet, but it never crossed my mind.

“I am not saying what I did was right because I lured them to the hotels and used their brains in order to have sex with them. I also collected money from them after sex. The last one that put me in trouble was a lady that paid N55, 000. She told her friend and her friend reported the matter to the police. The police should not accuse me of rape and blackmail. I only used my brains to take advantage of my victims.”

Customs impounds 2.1m bottles of killer Analgin injection

Customs impounds 2.1m bottles of killer Analgin injection
  • Market advances with N18bn gain

 

Less than five months after the closure of the nation’s borders by the Federal Government, the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has raised fresh alarm over the sudden upsurge in the smuggling of contraband products into the country.

The Comptroller, Kayode Olusemire, in charge of the Federal Operations Unit (FOU) Zone C of the NCS, yesterday, made the disclosure to journalists.

The zonal controller said his men impounded a container load of 2,127,600 bottles of Analgin injection and 1,920 bags of foreign rice, and other items with a total Duty Paid Value (DPV) of over N492 million between October and November this year.

Olusemire, who showed journalists the seizures, also said that the service equally seized 521 bales of second hand clothes and 233 foreign furniture falsely declared as generators and household items.

According to Olusemire, six persons were arrested in connection with the importation of the banned products.

Olusemire expressed concerns that Analgin Injection, which is said to be deadlier than tramadol, and which had been banned by most advanced nations of the world, including Switzerland and America, was still being imported by some Nigerians into the country in their quest to make quick money.

The controller said that the drug was banned in Nigeria by the Federal Government after it was discovered to have caused the death of two students of Delta State University in 2005 and disfigured many others.

Olusemire said: “This is a drug that was banned by Switzerland in 1977 and the USA in 1979. It was banned here in 2005 after it was discovered to be deadly. But, some Nigerians are still in the habit of perpetrating evil. They derive joy in doing things that are untoward and abominable. They brought in 1182 cartons with 18 packets each. Each of these packets contains 100 bottles totalling over two million bottles. They concealed them in a sealed container, supposedly conveying generators, but were intercepted along Port Harcourt/ Owerri road.”

He lamented that despite the border closures and fight against smuggling of foreign rice, some persons were still smuggling banned products into the country.

Olusemire said that in order to evade arrests, most of the smugglers bring in the rice through the creeks and conceal the rice in tippers and cement trucks in the unhealthiest form of conveying edible materials.

Dismissing smuggling of prohibited goods as an act of sabotage, Olusemire advised Nigerians to learn to produce and to consume locally produced goods. He stressed that border closure was an inevitable option by the government to protect and to safeguard the nation’s economy and protect local industries.

Odumosu praised for prompt arrest of five policemen

Extorted N.7m recovered

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has been commended for his prompt arrest of the five policemen, attached to the Inspector-General of Police Special Tactical Squad (IGP STS), who allegedly collected over N700, 000 via POS from Mr Kareem Damilari Jamiu, an Estate Agent, on Monday.

In a statement yesterday, made available to our reporter, Rule of Law and Accountability Advocacy Centre (RULAAC), a nongovernmental organisation, also commended Odumosu for recovering the N700, 000 collected from Jamiu via POS. It was also alleged that the CP further recovered the N5000, which the five policemen collected from the victim.

The statement, signed by the Executive Director of RULAAC, Mr Okechukwu Nwanguma, states: “RULAAC has received with a sense of reassurance and hope in the Nigeria Police the feedback from the Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police, Bala Elkana, that the Command has arrested and taken into custody the rogue police officers who engaged in hostage taking and robbery on Monday at Sagamu, Ogun State.

“RULAAC commends the Lagos State Police Commissioner and the PRO for their prompt response to the petition by the organisation, alerting it of the disgraceful development and calling on the Command to fish out the rogue officers, recover the money from them and subject them to appropriate disciplinary actions in accordance with the law.”

Nwanguma further said: “It is heartwarming that the Lagos State Command has by its prompt response to the complaint, demonstrated its non-tolerance for police corruption and abuse as well as determination to fish out and deal with criminals in the Police who continue to dent the image of the police.”

It would be recalled that RULAAC on Tuesday received information from Jamiu, who lives at NNPC Sagamu that a team of police officers, claiming to have come from the Police Headquarters, Ikeja, came on Monday, arrested him over allegations that he was a, ‘cultist and a Yahoo Yahoo boy.”

The policemen would later demand the sum of N5million from him in order to let him go, but after negotiation, the money was reduced to N100, 000

Jamiu explained that he had to call friends, who assisted him in raising the N100, 000, which was sent to his account. He was taken to a filling station by the policemen, where a lady handling the POS machine gave them cash, while Jamiu remitted money into her account. 

The officers then asked him to show them the balance in his account and under pressure, he showed them. When they saw the balance in his account, they got angry and started beating him. He was then made to transfer N200, 000 in three installments before being allowed to leave.

Lady, lover arrested in hotel for possession of arms

Operatives of the Special Anti-cultism Squad, (SARS), Lagos State Police Command have arrested a 22-year-old single mother, Ayomide Adebanjo and her lover, Dare Taiwo, over possession of a gun.

The arrest and detention of the lovers started on Saturday, after police received intelligence report that some hoodlums were hibernating in a hotel, preparing to head out to another hotel located at Alapere area of Ketu, for an operation.

Reacting to the information, police stormed the hotel and recovered a locally made double barrel gun from the hotel room where the lovers had lodged for the night.

Adebanjo said: “On Friday night, my boyfriend and I went out to have fun. Before we knew what was happening, it was late. So we decided to spend the night in Money Mark Hotel at Ketu.  We got to the hotel at about 11p.m. and slept till the following day. We woke up when we heard someone banging on our room door. It was policemen.

“The time was about 6:30am; Dare opened the door for them. The policemen said they were from Alapere Police Station. They searched everywhere, but found nothing. Then, they checked the bed; it was my boyfriend that assisted them to raise the mattress. Underneath it, they found a black nylon which contained a gun. When they brought out the gun out, I was very surprised. I don’t know anything about the gun or how it got into that room.”

The woman further said: “I met Dare three months ago at Mile 12. I am an apprentice. I have a son, who is about three years old. I had him after I completed my secondary education. The father of my child abandoned me immediately I got pregnant. It was a church that took care of me till I put to bed. My baby is presently staying with my mother at Alakuko area, but my father is late.”

Taiwo, who works at a car wash centre, denied that the gun belonged to him. He said; “I am surprised they discovered a gun in the hotel room. I have only been to that hotel twice before my arrest. I live with my aunt, which was why I took my girlfriend to a hotel to spend the night. After I paid for the hotel room, we moved into the room. We discovered that there was no television. I went back to the receptionist to complain. In fact, I didn’t want to lodge there again, but because it was very late, I had to reconsider and we went back to the room. If I had known, maybe I would not have lodged there. We don’t know anything about the gun found in our hotel room.”

NURTW, RTEAN members clash over ticket levy in Lagos

Members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN), yesterday at the Igando area of Lagos State, engaged themselves in a bloody fight over ticket levy.

Eyewitnesses said the clash between the two rival unions started at about 7a.m. at Akensan bus stop, after RTEAN members stormed the area in an attempt to stop the NURTW members from collecting levy at that junction.

The two union members were alleged to have been armed with charms and dangerous weapons, which they used freely. They succeeded in disrupting commercial activities in the area. Traders hurriedly locked up their shops and left to avoid being hit by flying bullets.

Mr Lati Bashiru, who led the NURTW members in the clash, was shot on his left arm, while several others sustained various degrees of injuries.

It was also gathered that a member of RTEAN, identified simply as Jafo, led their members to the Akensan bus, where the NURTW members were collecting ticket levy.

A policeman, who was deployed to the scene to maintain law and order, was manhandled and taken hostage by the hoodlums. He was, however, later rescued by his colleagues. There was heavy deployment of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) operatives by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in charge of Igando Police Station, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), Taiwo Kasumu. Some of the hoodlums were later arrested by the policemen.

Aside from Bashiru, who was hit by stray bullet, a woman, Mrs Aberejo Oluchi, also sustained injury on her left leg.

The Proprietress of Wakisco Bar and Restaurant, located at No. 71 Old Akesan road, Mrs. Jonathan Ifeoma, said some of warring men invaded her beer parlour, which was close to the main road, beat her and her son. They then carted away cartons of beer, malts, fried fishes, chicken and goat meats.
