Pics: Customs & Border Patrol Officers @ New York's JFK Airport Arrest 2 Passengers Who Attempted To Smuggle Drugs On A Whole New Method

Customs and Border Patrol officers at New York’s JFK airport said they captured two more passengers who attempted to smuggle drugs by strapping packages of cocaine to their legs.

The most recent seizure came when two men tried to bring more than 10 kilos of cocaine into the United States on April 19, officers said. Both men allegedly had the drugs taped to their legs under their clothing, and one man taped the drugs to his back.

The two men traveled on the same flight from the Dominican Republic to New York last week, but it’s unclear if they knew each other.

   ''This latest seizure demonstrates our CBP officers being ever vigilant in protecting the United States from the distribution of these illicit drugs.'' Leon Hayward, acting director of CBP’s New York field operations, stated in a press release.

In the statement, it was not mentioned what tipped off the officers to conduct additional inspections on the men. But they were taken to a private search room where officers seized 23 pounds (10.4 kilos) of cocaine estimated at a nearly $400,000 street value.

The two men were arrested and are facing federal narcotics smuggling charges, according to the CBP.

Last month at the same airport, officers said they discovered two other passengers on separate days with drugs taped under their pants.

Those seizures equaled to 6.8 kilos (15 pounds) of cocaine.

Full Details Of What Allegedly Transpired Between Toyo Baby And Funke Akindele

According to TNS, Funke Akindele removed Juliana Olayode, who plays Toyo Baby on Jenifa Diary, from the series over what the latter termed ‘bad pay’.

A source revealed that Toyo Baby was cut off from the widely watched TV series for requesting an increment in pay which didn’t go well with Funke Akindele who feels she’s an ingrate being that Olayode rose to stardom through her appearance on the widely-watched show.

Sources close to SceneOneProductions, producers of Jenifa’s Diary, further revealed that the producer of the show, Funke Akinkele via her production manager and younger sister – Abimbola – pays actors between N3,000 and N150,000 (per episode/season of the show) depending on the role.

An actress who spoke to TNS under the condition of anonymity via text message narrated how she was paid what she termed ‘peanuts’ by Akindele’s team after being part of an all-night party scene on Jenifa’s Diary.

   ''I got a text message from Sceneone Productions that I had been selected to act on Jenifa’s Diary and I will be part of a party scene. I was so excited that I told my entire family about it. Mind you, it wasn’t my 1st time acting but d feeling of being on Jenifa’s diary was a big deal for me. I was asked to come with 5 different party costumes. Location was Amen Estate, Eleko.

   ''After filming with over 30 girls the whole night, Funke came to address us and advice that money shouldn’t be our priorities at this stage; that was when it occurred to me that something awkward was about to happen….just then, the Production Manager, Mr Osmond whispered something to Funke’s sister, Abimbola & she started paying us each 3K. Can u imagine?, 3K for all night shoot!…on Jenifa’S DIARY!… I was so mad, some of us had to turn down the money shaa…. Couldn’t face my mom to explain to her wat happened the next morning.''

According to our findings, actors Lota Chukwu, Omotunde Lolo 1, Falz D Bahd Guy (who has also left the show) and Olayode are the highest paid actors who take home 150k per season.The rest take home much lesser money.

Stars like Tiwa Savage, Toke Makinwa and others who have had cameo appearances on the show reportedly got between 100k and 300k for ‘showing face’.

You will also note that Juliana was absent at events and parties that held at Funke’s house in Lekki.

Funke and Juliana have also unfollowed each other on their social media accounts.

Na Wa! Woman, Mrs Shaw, Aka, Mama G, Allegedly Incurs N757,000 Debt At A Lagos Bar

A bar operator on Lekki Beach Road, Ademola Ogunbona, says he has lost his livelihood to the alleged debt of N757,750 incurred by one Mrs. Shaw, aka Mama G.

It was learnt that the woman had gone to the bar around 6am on August 15, 2016, to have fun, which lasted till about 1am the following day.

It was said that Mama G instructed the barman to serve customers that came to the bar throughout her stay, and promised to pick up the bill for the drinks they consumed.

It was gathered that one of the major beneficiaries of Mama G’s gesture was a man who came to the bar with his friends at about 6.30pm to celebrate his birthday.

She allegedly ordered many rounds of drinks for the man and his friends and told Ogunbona to add their bill to hers.

However, at about 1am, when she had reportedly become inebriated, some persons were said to have stormed the bar and took her away in a Honda car to Rotary Garden Estate, Ilasan, Ajah, where she lives with her husband.

In a chat with PunchMetro, Ogunbona said he, two of his workers and the chief security officer of the shops in the area followed the car, but the security guards at the estate gate did not allow them in.

He said, ''Mama G came to my bar at about 6am on August 15, 2016, and ordered drinks. She told me to serve everybody that came to the bar and promised to pay. In the afternoon, I told her that her bill was over N200,000. She slapped my face and asked me whether she looked like a debtor.

   ''She said I should serve very expensive drinks to whoever came to the bar. She even called some beggars who were passing by into the bar to drink. Around 6.30pm, a man came into the bar to mark his birthday along with his friends, numbering about 16, including ladies. She told them not to pay.

   ''They took five bottles of Remy Martin, seven bottles of Absolute Vodka and three bottles of Sky. They also smoke cigarettes. They left around 10pm. At about 1am, four men and a woman came to pick the woman. I insisted that I would collect my money, but they took her away.

   ''They dropped her off at the estate gate and left. She banged the gate repeatedly. Eventually, her housemaids came to pick her. I was not allowed to enter into the estate with her.''

The father of two children explained that he went to report the case at the Ajiwe Police Division and submitted the bill to the police. He said the police invited the woman, but her husband sent a message to them that she had gone to Ghana.

   ''He told the police that Mama G would come back in December 2016. The police sent another letter to the man in December. On January 11, he transferred N200,000 into my bank account.

   ''I called him and asked for the remaining money, he said I should contact his wife’s lawyer. When I called the lawyer, he said I should manage the money like that. I reported back to the station and they invited his wife again. Neither the woman nor her husband showed up. Their cook and driver were arrested. The lawyer secured their bail on the same day.

   ''Since the case was transferred to the Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja, in February 2017, the Investigating Police Officer in charge of the case has been telling me to be patient; but I have children and a wife to cater to.'' He added.

The husband, Mr. Shaw, terminated a call put across to him immediately our correspondent began to make an inquiry on the matter. Subsequent calls to his line rang out.

However, the lawyer, Mr. Onome Okodiya, who spoke on behalf of the family, said it was not true that Mama G promised to pay for the birthday celebration or was forcefully taken away from the bar.

He said the matter was being investigated by the State Police Command, adding that the N200,000 was paid to the bar manager ''in good faith'' pending the outcome of a reconciliatory move by the police.

Okodiya said, ''We deny that Mrs. Shaw owed that kind of money. When the barman chose to use the police in Lekki to enforce the debt, we made a report to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police and the case is being investigated. We are going to wait for the outcome of the investigation.

   ''The payment (N200,000) was made in good faith while awaiting reconciliation. There is a scam which we are trying to unravel. One person is claiming over N700,000; another person is claiming over N800,000. What is the value of the stock they have? Everybody is under investigation in respect of this matter.''

Wife-Killer, Akolade Arowolo, Begs Gov Ambode For Pardon

Akolade Arowolo, a pastor, who killed his banker wife, Titilayo, with 73 other inmates of the Kirikiri Maximum Prisons, yesterday, sought pardon under the Lagos State Prerogative on Mercy conferred on the Governor, claiming they are reformed and should be pardoned.

Akolade, who was sentenced to death by an Ikeja high court three years ago after he was found guilty of his wife’s murder on June 24, 2011, was seen in prison, pleading that he needs another chance to right his wrongs.

His pleading came as the Committee on Prerogative on Mercy said that the state will not fail to exercise its prerogative on prisoners, who proved to be reformed.

Arowolo was among 74 prisoners called out by the committee, led by Professor Oyelowo Oyewo, set up by the governor to review their applications. The committee was on a fact-finding visit to the prisons to have first hand information from the inmates that are eligible for mercy and pardon.

Arowolo, who delivered a remark on behalf of his fellow inmates, pleaded for mercy, stressing that they are all remorseful and have learned from their mistakes.

Chairman of the committee, Oyelowo, said the governor will act on the committee’s recommendations based on the rules and guidelines set by law for the committee to conduct its work.

EFCC Set To Storm Nigerian Universities – Ibrahim Magu

Ibrahim Magu, Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), says the commission will soon storm universities across the country to launch its anti-corruption programme.

Magu disclosed this to newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday on the sideline of the opening ceremony of a capacity building workshop on the use of beneficial ownership information and the recovery of assets in Africa.

He said that the anti-corruption programme would be similar to that of ''Women Against Corruption''.

   ''We are already talking with the universities; we are looking at starting with University of Lagos and Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) where we will launch the programme.

   ''There is something on ground to also reach out to the universities as student’s union leaders have disturbed me over issues in the sector.

   ''The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) leadership visited me last week and this was part of their complaints.

   ''We assured them that we are going to join them and launch the anti-corruption programme and we need them too because we are protecting their future.'' He said.

On stolen assets, Magu said that government was working with global partners to fast-track the return of stolen assets abroad.

He said that the commission was planning to clamp down on tax evaders as part of plans to bring succour to the economy.

   ''We are going to collaborate with FIRS and set up a unit that will exclusively deal with tax fraud, tax evasion and related offences. We are going to see that we work on this seriously.

   ''We have just discussed it with the FIRS chairman; we will give the operatives a special training to operate very well.'' Magu added.

Whewww.. Khloe Kardashian Sued For Posting A Pic Of Khloe Kardashian On Instagram

The price of fame? A photo agency has filed a federal lawsuit against Khloe Kardashian, accusing the reality star of infringing on their copyrights.

According to the suit by paparazzi agency, Xposure Photos, Khloe removed the copyright information from one of their pictures and posted it on her Instagram page without crediting them.

The photo was taken in September 2016 by photographer Manual Munoz when Kardashian was dining at Miami restaurant, Komodo, with her sister. The set was licensed to the DailyMail as an exclusive.

In legal documents, Xposure Photos claims they would have profited from the shots had Kardashian not shared them on social media. They are now seeking $150,000 in damages from Kardashian .

The company says in a statement,

   ''Kardashian's Instagram post made the photograph immediately available to her nearly 67 million followers and others, consumers of entertainment news — and especially news and images of Kardashian herself, as evidenced by their status as followers of Kardashian —who would otherwise be interested in viewing licensed versions of the photograph in the magazines and newspapers that are plaintiff’s customers.''

Guys See How This Man When He Returned Home To Find His Girlfriend In His Bed With Another Man

Wows! Such a calm man, with no zero anger!! When most people find their partners in bed with someone else, their first reaction is to scream and yell, but one betrayed boyfriend instead decided it was the perfect opportunity for a photo shoot.

After Duston Holloway from Emory, Texas, walked in to his bedroom and found his girlfriend passed out drunk next to a random guy, he opted to keep his sense of humor about the unfortunate situation.
Instead of flipping out, he started snapping pics of them in bed, and he even posed for a selfie in front of the them, later sharing the images on Facebook.

'When you come home to another man in your bed with the one you loved! Good men deserve good women.' he wrote using a peace sign emoji.

The images see Duston's now-ex-girlfriend passed out next to another guy, and while she has her shirt on, he does not.
The unknown man looked right at home in Duston's bed, and when one Facebook user messaged him to ask if he woke them up, he admitted that he initially wanted to 'kick his a**'.
'But I calmly just took selfies and walked like a boss lol,' he added. 'I did tap her to wake her up but she was drunk as a skunk passed out.

'I was gonna ask if I was gonna have to sleep in the spare bedroom and what kinda breakfast the dude liked lmao.'
Unsurprisingly, Duston's amazing pics went viral, and thousands of people from all over the world have reached out to him to praise him for staying calm, cool, and collected while finding himself in such a miserable situation.

Awww.. This Blind Old Man Gave His Land To Over 500 IDPs For Shelter In Maiduguri (Pics)

A kind old man gave up his land to be used by Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Zannari Kanti Goma camp in Borno state.

Due to Boko Haram insurgency which has plagued Nigeria for some years now, a lot of people have been displaced from their homes in the North.

Some camps were started to provide shelter and food for the survivors of the horrific attacks, with well-meaning Nigerians sending relief materials from time to time.
A kind, blind old man identified as Ahmed Ali, decided to give up his only prized possession to cater to the needs of others. He gave up his only piece of land, to house over 500 IDPs, in Borno.
Ahmed Ali aka Mai Kifi, gave up his only piece of land so that IDPs can be sheltered

Sharing the story on Facebook, a lady identified as Aisha Musa Kidah wrote:

"A braveheart is one who stands for those who cannot stand, who speaks for those who cannot speak, who holds up the arms of the weary, who offers hope to those who have lost their way.
   ''I met a man with a brave heart today, his heart is full of love and kindness. He is one in a million, a rare gem. He is also blind and an old man. His name is Ahmed Ali a.k.a Mai Kifi, an indigene of Mafa LGA Borno State.
   ''This blind man gave his land to the IDPs at Zannari Kanti Goma camp for shelter. Over 500 IDPs are now residing on the piece of land for free. A gesture that is lacking even among the #Rich.

   ''Ya Allah reward him with Jannatul firdausi. The blind man deserves a national award. What's your take?"

Mai Kifi's land provides shelter for over 500 people in Borno. May God bless him.

Barack Obama, Along With Others He Pressured Helped Buhari To Defeat Me In The 2015 Election - Jonathan

The immediate past President of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has claimed that he lost the 2015 presidential elections, because of a conspiracy between the USA, Britain and France.

In a new book ''Against The Run of Play'' authored by the Chairman of ThisDay Editorial Board, Olusegun Adeniyi, Jonathan said former US President Barack Obama, ex-British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Francois Hollande helped President Muhamamdu Buhari win the election.

He said: ''President Barack Obama and his officials made it very clear to me by their actions that they wanted a change of government in Nigeria and we’re ready to do anything to achieve that purpose. They even brought some Naval ships into the Gulf of Guinea in the days preceding the election.

   ''I got on well with Prime Minister David Cameron but at some point, I noticed that the Americans were putting pressure on him and he had to join them against me.

   ''But I didn’t realise how far President Obama was prepared to go to remove me until France caved in to the pressure from America.

   ''But weeks to the election, he had also joined the Americans in supporting the opposition against me.''

On why Obama was not confident in him, Jonathan said, ''There was this blanket accusation that my body language was supporting corruption, a line invented by the opposition but which the media and civil society bought into and helped to project to the world. That was the same thing I kept hearing from the Americans without specific allegations.''

Jonathan also admitted that Buhari’s administration was doing a better job on the fight against insurgency.

   ''What is happening now with regards to Boko Haram was the same thing that happened to me regarding Niger Delta militants in 2007.

   ''I did my best and so did the military, though I can understand if there is greater commitment to the fight now than in the past. In my time, Boko Haram said they were fighting an infidel government. That naturally has to change since they cannot also call Buhari an infidel.

   ''There is a feeling of ‘our man is there now’ that you cannot discountenance. It was the same feeling with me with the Niger Delta militants at the initial stage in 2007.'' He said.
