Press Statement From The Anambra State Police Commissioner On Ozubulu Church Attack

Here’s the press release from Anambra State Commissioner of Police on Ozubulu Church Attack;

Gentlemen of the press, I welcome you all to this press conference today 6th August, 2017. The purpose of this briefing is to intimate you on the shooting incident that happened this morning. At about 6.30hrs of today, 6th August 2017. I got a distress call that gunmen had invaded St. Philip Catholic church Amakwa in Ozubulu, Ekwusigo LGA, while the mass was going on and shot at worshipers. Police teams along with other sister security agencies under my direct supervision were deployed to the scene to rescue the worshippers. Victims were evacuated to the hospital, and the hospital authority has confirmed 11 persons dead, and 18 injured as a result of the shooting.

The Executive governor of the state visited the scene while I was there, and assured the injured persons of his support in offsetting the medical bills and that the full wrath of law will be visited on the perpetrators. The Command under my watch will leave no stone unturned in locating and prosecuting those behind the massacre of innocent worshippers.

The Command assures Ndi Anambra and the general public that the Police is on top of the situation and will locate and prosecute the perpetrators soon. Intelligence report/Preliminary investigation shows that the incident is as a result of a feud between two individuals who are from the community but who live outside Nigeria, one of the individual we learnt, built the church where the incident occurred. It is definitely not a terrorist attack in the mould of boko haram or fulani herdsmen attack.

The Command views this dastardly act as sacrilegious but for now considers it still premature to disclose the identities of those involved in the act. The Command will brief the public after investigation is concluded. I commiserate with all those who lost their loved ones from this unfortunate incident and pledge that the command would not rest on its oars until the perpetrators are apprehended to face justice. I want to also encourage Ndi Anambra to be vigilant and to report strange and suspicious movement of persons and actions in their locality to the security agencies promptly, please. Thanks and God bless.

N255M Bullet-Proof BMW: It's FG's Vehicle, Not Mine — Senator Stella Oduah

Former Minister of Aviation, Senator Stella Oduah, has said she is unaware of any probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on any matter allegedly concerning her.

She was reacting to media reports that she had been invited by the anti-graft agency for questioning over a N225 million bullet-proof BMW allegedly purchased by her when she was a minister.

The car was said to have been bought by one of the agencies under the Aviation ministry.

But, Oduah told the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja, yesterday, that there was no basis upon which she could be probed, saying the vehicle did not belong to her.

She said: “To start with, I do not know where any letter on the probe is because nobody has invited me, and as far as I know, there is nothing and there cannot be anything on invitation for purchase of a BMW.

“I did not buy a BMW; I have never bought a BMW. The BMW is a property of the government, and it is still in government care. The car is with the agency that bought it.

“The agency is still using it, and so, why will the car, which belongs to government and in the care of government and being used by government, be an issue for me?”

Baddo Members Disguise As Worshippers To Attack C&S Church In Ikorodu-Lagos

Suspected members of the Badoo cult disguised as worshipers on Saturday to attack the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Okin Parish, Igbo Agbowa, Ibeshe, in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State.

It was learnt that a woman, who had attended a vigil in the church, was injured after her head was smashed with a stone.

It was gathered that three Badoo suspects had mingled with the congregation during the vigil, which ended around 3am on Saturday.

Shortly after the members slept off, the assailants reportedly struck, smashing the stone on the head of the woman whose name had yet to be ascertained.

A Punch correspondent was told that the victim raised the alarm, which woke up other church members and residents of the area.

A resident, who gave his name only as Joseph, said the crowd gave the suspects a chase and one of them was apprehended.

He added that the woman had been admitted to a hospital.

He said, “After his arrest, he told us that they were three that attended the vigil. They pretended to be members of the church. People were exhausted after the service and slept off inside the church. During that period, they attacked the woman. She was seriously injured in the head.

“Two of them fled, but the third suspect was apprehended and taken to the Ipakodo Police Station. Some youths wanted to lynch him, but they were stopped.”

An elder in the community, who spoke on condition of anonymity, urged the police to conduct adequate investigation on the suspect with a view to arresting other fleeing members and their sponsors.

“The woman is in a critical condition at the hospital. It took the intervention and assurances from elderly members of the community that justice would be done before the youths agreed to hand over the suspect to the police.

“We have witnessed a situation where a suspect was caught like this and handed over to the police, but nothing came out of it. The police should ensure diligent investigation and prosecution. If justice is done, people will stop jungle justice,” he added.

An executive member of the Ibeshe Community Development Association, who did not want his name in print, said many residents had relocated from the area following the killing of a couple and their two children last Sunday in the Oke-Ota community.

He called on the police to extend night patrol to inner streets, adding that panic had gripped the neighbourhood.

He said, “The security situation in the community is still bad. People are packing out en masse from Oke-Ota and the community is becoming scanty. I know of about 20 people who have moved out.

“Police patrol is the same old way of blaring sirens on the road. They don’t come to the inner parts of the community. The major security work lies on vigilantes.”

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, who confirmed the incident, said the command did not want to disclose details of the suspect so as not to jeopardise investigations.

The CP said, “We don’t want those ones that ran away to have an inkling of what we are doing. We have been looking for how to get them. If we blow this open, others may go into hiding.”

According to reports, the battle had allegedly claimed some lives already over there in South Africa.
According to Facebook user, Malik Shabbazz, Bishop left Nigeria via Murtala Muhammed International Airport back to South Africa.

He will in turn help us here with names of his associates so we can serve them justice also, not just for the unwanted murders but also for drug crimes .

Case solved !

I will keep out vital part of the information as it drags in a political angle to it and could distort the case.'' He added.

Nigerians React To The Removal Of NYSC From The 1999 Constitution

Majority of Nigerian Senators on Wednesday, July 26th, voted for the removal of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Decree from the 1999 Constitution.. And this has generated mixed reactions from Nigerians.

While some welcomed the development, others expressed their concerns about its consequences in the lives of youths and national development.

Mrs Ene Ede, Gender Advisor, National Democratic Institute, said,

“My problem with Nigeria is that sometimes people can take advantage of lapses in processes.”

“Altering the constitution to delete certain decrees can mean various things. My fear in this is that it may be taken advantage of, imagine if someone is not in support of gender equity and then he decides to suggest something that is against women, how do we now balance this?”

“We are also suffering from religious and ethnic bias in this country, so the most important thing for me is inclusiveness.”

“If the process is transparent, inclusive, accountable, gender sensitive, responsive to the needs and aspirations of the people and driven by the people then, it is good,” Ede said.

Mr Abdulrazak Salawu, the NYSC, FCT Coordinator, said deleting the decree guiding the NYSC from the 1999 constitution would expose the scheme to unnecessary dangers.

Salawu said it was because the NYSC decree was in the constitution that allowed it to be sustained through the years, making it grow and evolve in its activities, including addressing youth unemployment.

He urged the NASS not to toy with the NYSC decree.

Salawu said altering the constitution would give room for individuals and groups to ‘toy’ with the mandate and guiding principles of the scheme which had sustained it.

He said it would be an hindrance to the growth, development and progress of the country and youths which the scheme had tried to support.

“If the NYSC Decree is deleted from the constitution, it will cause a lot of problems because we are not easily objective in our decisions in this country.”

“An individual can just choose to be subjective for his or her own interest. If we do this, we will be toying with the lives and the future of the Nigerian youths.”

“NYSC is the only youth development programme set up by the Federal Government that has been sustained over the years.”

“We should not toy with the future of the youth. NYSC is currently playing a pivotal role in youth development, implementation of government policies, promotion of inter-tribal marriages for national integration and unity.”

“Everyone is a stakeholder in this scheme because it involves all and do not forget that even developed countries and most African countries are coming to Nigeria indicating interest in the NYSC.”

“Nigeria is a consultant in youth development for most African countries as they wish to duplicate NYSC in their various countries, so we need to be careful with how we handle this.”

“Our doors have been open and continue to be open for us to engage in Public Private Partnership (PPP) with individuals, agencies and organisations interested in youth development.”

“So, all stakeholders are already involved in the scheme.”

He urged NASS not to ignore the role and contribution of the NYSC to the growth and development of Nigeria which may be affected if the decree guiding and guarding it was altered.

Alhaji Isa Hussaini, a media consultant, welcomed the development, but, said that the process involved in amending the constitution was often not easily managed.

He suggested that before deleting the decree from the constitution, the constitution be strengthened in a way that no individual, no matter the position, can change the law.

According to Hussaini, when the NYSC decree is deleted from the constitution before it can be amended, there should be public hearing involving stakeholders.

“I think having NYSC in the constitution is good but the world is evolving and things are changing, we also need to change with the times and amend the constitution in line with the dynamic nature of the society.”

“I think it is better to remove it from the constitution and set up an act of parliament to guide the institution.”

“The law should, however, be strengthened in such a way that no President or individual can come in to make changes as it suits him or her.”

“The NYSC has really helped parents in terms of keeping their children engaged, training them in various skills and providing monthly stipends for them.”

Mr Tony Madaki, a lecturer at the Nassarawa State Polytechnic, Keffi, urged the NASS to only amend the relevant section of the constitution but leave the scheme in the constitution, as it is relevant to the growth and development of the youth and the nation.

“The scheme has always been protected by the constitution and I think this should remain so.

“For me, I feel that any relevant section of the constitution that needs amendment should be amended, but the NYSC decree should be allowed to remain in the constitution.”

Guys Read This Emotional Story From A Mother Whose Daughter Was Born Blind (Pics)

Read the emotional story below, of IG user, @kiara.shanee..

''When we found out I was having a baby girl, I was so excited and started planning her whole life out in my head. Dance schools, gymnastics, modeling etc. All cute things that little girls do. And to top it off, my best friend proposed to me, taking the next step to making our family one! Life was looking up and I couldn't have asked for anything more. I ate all kinds of healthy foods, drank the best water, Google was life and avocado became my best friend lol. The day came on 3.15.2017 at 5:34am after having labour pains for almost two days. .

It was a natural and easy birth and God blessed me with a beautiful baby girl - Kensley Ayanna. But I noticed something.. it was a big lump under her left eye and her eyes were swollen. I asked the nurses and doctors I saw that day and everyone told me it would go down, not to worry about it. But I pressed on because I wanted her to open her eyes.. to see me and her dad. The next day we were hit with heart breaking news. "We didn't find any", is what they said to us. My heart fell to my stomach. My fiancé broken like never before. .

In an instant it pulled us closer together. With my mom by my side, they helped me to be STRONG. I had no other choice. It felt like a dream. My baby girl has a rare genetic disorder called Anophthalmia (born without eyes). Like what? Why me? Why her? But I soon realised what was best for her was me and what was best for me was her! Today I no longer have those questions. God makes no mistakes. During ultrasounds she would cover her face or turn her head because she was meant to be here. I will treat my daughter as normal because she is normal. .

A healthy baby girl who has the advantage of not seeing the ugliness in the world the way I do. To meet and love someone for who they are, not what they see. To surpass all limitations and expectations. Kensley will have to work a little harder but yes, I will see to it as her mother that NOTHING stands in her way. For now my eyes are hers and I will show my daughter nothing but love...''

The Drama And Transformation Of Amir Khan's Wife, Faryal Makhdoom & The Accusation Of Anthony Joshua

After months of very public problems, including a family spat, rumours of a sex tape and cheating allegations Amir Khan and his wife Faryal sensationally split yesterday.

The boxer, from Bolton, who is worth £23million, announced their split over Twitter in a tweet reading 'So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I'm currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best'. 

The heated argument that proceeded is worlds away from the humble couple who gushed about one another at their engagement back in 2012 - but that's not the only thing to have changed.
In the seven years that the couple have been together Faryal has undergone a dramatic transformation from her humble days as a student.

Amir and Faryal first met when she was 19 and he was 24 through mutual friends at a party in New York seven years ago.

At the time, the businesswoman, who runs a cosmetic company, was studying political science and journalism at Rutgers University School of Arts and Sciences in New Jersey.

She adopted a modest approach to fashion with photos from their early days of dating seeing Faryal opt for fitted pencil skirts and jeans.
Two years after they met the couple were engaged with images from their engagement ceremony showcasing their dedication to their religion.

Official photos see Faryal dressed in a deep red sari and elaborate jewels performing a ring exchange before their family.

However, despite Faryal's clear committal to Islam then the now model has since faced criticism over the way she dressed from members of her husband's family.

Faryal claimed that she was bullied by members of the Khan family previously stating that she was considered a 'bad Muslim' if she bared any skin and claims she was even cropped out of family photographs.

The model also claims she came under fire from the family for having plastic surgery.

In an Interview last year she said: 'I was in Pakistan with Amir's family when his brother tweeted: 'Michael Jackson isn't dead. He lives with us.' He was trying to say I'd had plastic surgery.'

However, in March this year Faryal admitted that she was partial to a few nips and tucks in an interview with you magazine.
She said: 'Because of lack of sleep, genes, dehydration, I get bags under my eyes and I wanted to get them lightened. So I went to my doctor, Simon [Ourian, a renowned cosmetic surgeon in LA] – he's Kim Kardashian's doctor.'

Faryal has also had fillers in her cheeks. 'I like high cheekbones,' she told the magazine.

However, she denies that this surgery adding: 'I've never had plastic surgery. Fillers and plastic surgery are two different things and I want people to understand that.'

She went on to say that it was thanks to her husband's money that she was able to alter her looks.

She added: 'If other women had this money and if they had a husband who was famous, they would do it, too. If I wasn't married to Amir Khan, I'd probably be a regular girl and I might not do it. But I'm in the limelight, I go to events, so it's part of my life now,' she added.

Last night was a whole lotta drama online, as Amir Khan took to his social media page to tell the world that his marriage has ended, adding that, his wife cheated on him with Anthony Joshua!! You can read his tweets below..
Ofcourse, in a more matured way, Anthony Joshua, finally responded, saying, he had never met Khan's wife and that, he prefers, BBW women, lol.. Mbok, what's BBW o??
..And yes, the woman in the middle of the whole drama, responded swiftly, denying the allegations..

40Years Old Man Rapes Ten Years Old Girl In Borno State

The Borno Police Command has arrested a 40-year-old man, Muhammad Usman, for allegedly defiling a 10-year-old girl in Maiduguri.

Mr Damian Chukwu, its Commissioner, made the disclosure while parading the suspect on Thursday in Maiduguri.

Chukwu said that the suspect was apprehended by detectives on June 10, at about 14: 30 p.m.

“The suspect has confessed to the act. He has told investigators that he had carnal knowledge of the girl at the Londonciki area of Maiduguri,” he said.

Chukwu explained that the command was awaiting legal advice from the ministry of justice, before prosecuting the suspect.

The commissioner, who expressed dismay over the spate of rape cases in the state, advised victims to always come forward and seek redress.

“People must change their attitude toward rape. Victims should report, while relations of suspects must stop making unnecessary pleas to save them.

“It is disheartening to see victims’ families asking the police to drop charges against rape suspects.

“Unless we change this attitude, we will continue to witness rapes in the society,” he said.

The Police commissioner said that the command had adopted proactive measures to enhance its operation, protect lives and rid Borno of criminals.

He said that additional personnel had been deployed to Maiduguri and liberated areas to enhance security, while a conference would be held every month, to review and appraise the security situation.

Four Police Officers Dismissed For Burgling Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan's House

File pic..
Some police officers who were arrested for allegedly burgling an Abuja residence of ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan, have been dismissed from the service by the Nigerian Police Force.

TariTaribo'sBlog had reported that some officers who guarded the home of the former president were arrested after it was discovered that the home located at located at No. 89, Fourth Avenue in the Gwarimpa district of Abuja was burgled.

The officers were accused of stealing items valued at several millions of naira from the home of the former president and selling them to traders at the Pankera second-hand market in Gwarimpa, Abuja.

Vanguard reports that the Abuja police command which announced the dismissal of the officers on Thursday, August 3, stated that their dismissal was approved by the commissioner of police FCT, CP Musa Kimo psc, following the out-come of an orderly room proceeding.

The name of the dismissed officers was given as:

1. F/No. 436691 Sgt Musa Musa

2. F/No. 235422 Sgt John Nanpak

3. F/No. 261898 Sgt Ogah Audu

4. F/No. 425210 Sgt Gabriel Ugah

The release by the force explained that the names of two other officers, AP/No.141199 Inspr Lengs Satlakau and AP/No. 150566 Inspr Usman Wuduki have been sent to AIG Zone 7 for further action.

The FCT police command stated that Sgt Musa Musa who allegedly spearheaded the burglary will will be charged to court for prosecution.

It also stated that steps have been put in place to apprehend his collaborator, one Mallam Shuaibu, who is presently on the run.

The command noted that the punitive action taken against the officers was in line with the resolve of the police boss, IGP Ibrahim Idris to do away with undisciplined officers who were giving the police a bad name.

Though cases of burglary are common in Nigeria, there has never been such a reported case of law enforcement officers being invoked in the act.

The alleged burglary of the former president’s home has done more harm to the image of the Nigeria Police which has been dealing with image problems for a long time.

Added to its perennial problem of being underfunded, the police have also had to deal with rampart cases of alleged corruption and other vices among officers.

Though several efforts have been put in place to make the Nigerian police a force to reckon with, such efforts have failed to yield beneficial results.

Meanwhile, a video has emerged of the house of former president Goodluck Jonathan, after it was allegedly burgled and vandalised by policemen who were assigned to guard the place.

In the short amateur video, the interior of the house was captured and showed the level of emptiness and vandalism carried out by the burglars.

Rob Kardashian And Blac Chyna Close To Reaching An Agreement On Dream

Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian are close to wrapping negotiations on a custody agreement for their daughter, Dream.

Sources close to the situation say neither Rob nor Blac Chyna has requested child support from the other yet. If that changes though, Rob would likely be the one asking for a couple of reasons.

First, Rob has Dream more often than Chyna according to people in the know. They also say Rob banks very little on his own outside of the family reality show. Chyna, on the other hand, makes huge chunks of change on appearances and hosting gigs.

So, even if custody ends up being a 50/50 split, there's at least the possibility Rob could eventually go after her for support. But right now, that's not on the table, they're close to reaching a settlement.

Lagos Mom Whose Two Kids Were Abducted By Apprentice Has Attempted Suicide 3 Times

Following the abduction of their two kids who are yet to be freed by their apprentice on November 28, 2016, the family of four-year-old Farouk and six-year-old Kafayat, have been thrown into confusion.

According to the Father of the missing kids, Fatai Azeez, Austin who denied vehemently of abducting her boss’ kids after she was arrested by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Lagos, added to their distress as the SARS officers told the family to forget about the children as Austin had been released.

It was also gathered that the mother of the kids, Suliat, was taken back to her hometwon in Oyo State as she had since the incident attempted suicide 2 times, and recently tried that again by taking Sniper.

The suspect Austin who presented herself as Grace John to the family, resumed as an apprentice at Suliat’s hairdressing workshop in the Okokomaiko area of Lagos on a Thursday, and disappeared with the children same day while their mother was away.

Things took a bad turn when she sold off a certain child identified as Oluwasemilore, daughter of a bead artist with whom she was working as an apprentice. The child had allegedly been adopted as the last buyer’s daughter when Austin was arrested in Badagry.

With no news of her kids, Suliat sunk into depression.

Fatai said,

   ''Since that time, she could not bring herself to understand how she could lose two children in a day. The first attempt was when she was just throwing herself on the floor and smashed a stool on her own head. She picked a knife and was about to stab herself when people restrained her.

   “Shortly afterwards, she wrote a suicide note with a knife by her side. People were, however, able to take the knife from her. When I could no longer bear it, I asked that she be sent to her village in Oyo State for proper care. When there was no one around, she drank Sniper. She has not regained her health since that time.

   “I called and begged him to use all means to get the girl to confess where she kept my children, but he said the girl denied abducting the kids.
   “Later, when I called to know what was going on, he said he had already taken the matter to court. When I asked for the name of the court, he said he never told me he took her to court. He appears to have been compromised.”
