Heartbroken Mother Of One, Laura Bedernyak, Hangs Herself & Drops Suicide Note 2Months After Boyfriend Committed Suicide

A heartbroken girlfriend hanged herself just two months after after her boyfriend took his own life, an inquest heard today.

Hotel receptionist Laura Bedernyak, 30, killed herself after the death of her football player boyfriend, Kyle Jones.

The 'sociable' mother-of-one fell into deep depression after talented amateur player Kyle, 29, died in January after a New Year's Eve party.

An inquest heard the Travelodge receptionist sought help for insomnia, sickness, and depression linked to her grief.

Best friend Jody Kennett told the inquest in Aberdare, South Wales, Laura was 'fun-loving' until her boyfriend's death.
Miss Kennett said: 'She became very sad. She told me she was depressed and she wanted to get help.'

Ms Bedernyak, of Brackla, Bridgend, South Wales, told friends and medical professionals she had never considered taking her own life.

She became withdrawn and stopped going out with friends, but was convinced to join her friends on a night out in March.

But the next morning she failed to ring friend Miss Kennett as had become the norm, leading to her friend entering her unlocked home and finding Laura unresponsive.

Kyle Jones (pictured left with Ms Bedernyak) died after a New Years Eve party earlier this year

She also left three suicide notes on her living room coffee table.

Coroner Andrew Barkley said Ms Bedernyak had been considered a 'medium to low' risk of suicide by mental health practitioners after being assessed.

Mr Barkley said: 'Her father says two days before her death she appeared happy, while other evidence says she was up and down.

'When she was assessed there was no evidence she was showing suicidal intent.

'Clearly something happened when she parted company with her friends that night. I'm satisfied what happened was by her own hand.'

Mr Barkley recorded a verdict of suicide.

Haruna said, ''INEC has held its regular weekly meeting today and considered the petition submitted by whole registered voters from Kogi West senatorial district to kickstart the process of recalling Senator Dino Melaye.
   ''In accordance with the INEC guidelines for the recall of members of the National Assembly, the Commission has finally acknowledged the receipt of the petition to the petitioners representatives and has conveyed a letter notifying Senator Dino Melaye of our receipt of the petition.

   ''The next step is to verify that the petitioners are registered voters in Kogi West senatorial district.

   ''INEC will on July 3, 2017, issue public notice stating dates, time, location and other details for the verification of the exercise.''

Kogi West, which Melaye represents in the Senate,has seven local governments areas.

Signatures and petitions from each of the local government areas were packaged in seven bags, which were tagged according to the names of the local governments, and submitted to the commission.

A prominent member of the All Progressives Congress in Ijumu, Mr. Cornelius Olowo, who led the delegation had insisted that the constituents were not satisfied with the quality of Melaye's representation.

He had said, ''We want Senator Melaye back because of poor representation, he is also not accessible to us, he is unreadable and has no constituency projects.

   ''Apart from the fact that he has never called any town hall meeting, there has been a major gap between the senator and the people he claims to represent.''

Oh Dear! Lagos Politician's Daughter Kidnapped 4 Days To Her Birthday (Pic)

A 19-year-old lady named, Bukola Adeosun, daughter of Mr. Bode Adeosun, an All Progressives Congress (APC) councillorship aspirant at Odi Olowo Local Council Development Area, Lagos State, has been abducted by suspected kidnappers.

Bukola was abducted about 9 p.m. on Tuesday at Ilupeju area of the metropolis when she went out to buy fish for her mother.

The victim and her younger sister were said to have been sent to buy the fish. The victim’s sibling was said to have gone in with the fish seller to collect balance of their money but came to discover that Bukola was nowhere to be seen.

The kidnappers were alleged to have ordered the girl into their Black Toyota Camry car.

Bukola’s younger sister thought the victim had gone back home. She also went home only to find out that Bukola was also not at home.

The victim’s distraught father, Adeosun, said members of the community joined them in the frantic search for Bukola.

He said: “I was returning from a meeting when I received a phone call from my wife that our daughter had been abducted. I rushed home and saw a crowd in my house. They were assisting my wife in the search for our daughter. After we returned home about 1.39 a.m., I received a phone call from a strange person, telling me that my daughter was in their custody. The caller said that I would hear from them again and hung up.

“It was then I knew my daughter had been abducted. Since then, I have not heard from the kidnappers. I don’t know what my daughter is going through right now.

“My daughter was abducted four days to her birthday. She would have been 20. I hope this is not how my political opponents want to get back at me. They know they would lose in the forthcoming election.”

A resident, Mr. Kunle Ajayi, said Bukola’s abduction was strange because such had never happened in the community.

The matter was reported at Ilupeju Police Station.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, said the girl was missing, not abducted.

He said the matter had been reported to the police and that investigation was ongoing.

Senator Sani Comes For His 'Friend' Gov El-Rufai, Says, 'Drop Presidential Ambition And Face Governance'

Chairman, Senate Committee on Local & Foreign Debts, Senator Shehu Sani (APC, Kaduna Central), has urged Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State to suspend any presidential or vice presidential ambition and concentrate in providing good governance for the people of the state.

Senator Sani has also threw his weight behind a social media report of alleged systemic nepotism and absence of transparency in the governance of the state under Governor el-Rufai, describing the allegations as true representation of the situation in Kaduna.

Efforts by Vanguard to get reactions from the governor on the matter were not successful.

N3bn contract

Meanwhile, Governor el-Rufai has denied reports that his government awarded N3 billion contracts for the construction of drainage in the state, saying it rather took action to stop wastage in government.

In a statement yesterday, the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Samuel Aruwan, said the governor also denied reports that he used his family members and other senior government officials as fronts in the award of the contracts.

The statement noted that the “Kaduna State Government rejects the narrative that (an online medium) has woven around the execution of drainage works in the major metropolitan centres of our state.

“There was no contract bazaar. Neither was N3 billion spent on the drainage works. Malam Nasir el-Rufai, his family and senior officials of this government are not involved in sharing contracts or using fronts.

“Rather, the government stepped in to stop one of its agencies going rogue on the drainage works, stopped the project, reviewed it and took disciplinary action.

“Upon review of the state of the projects, government had not paid anything beyond the N119.2 million KAPWA expended prior to the drainage project, being suspended. Investigations have verified further outstanding payments of N626 million.”

Referring to the contracts issue, Senator Sani, in a statement yesterday in Abuja by his Adviser on Politics and Ideology, Suleiman Ahmed, said: “The report about systemic nepotism, opacity and complete absence of transparency in the governance of Kaduna State is factual.

“Journalists in Kaduna State are under siege: blackmailed, arrested, pocketed or threatened with arrest and as such could not have written such a story.

“El-Rufai is a man with a mouth for criticism, but without a stomach for criticism. In his two years in office he has jailed not less than seven Journalists in Kaduna, of which many are in court.

“There is nothing progressive about many people who claim to be Buharists; they are reactionaries and career opportunists who can fit into any government in power.

“I call on el-Rufai to suspend his presidential or vice presidential ambitions and concentrate in proper governance of the state.”

Death Penalty Dangles On Billionaire Kidnap Kingpin Evans As Gov. Ambode Signs Bill To Law

The Lagos state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has signed into law, the state kidnapping prohibition bill, 2016, which prescribes Life Imprisonment or death penalty for the offence of Kidnapping and forceful extortion in Lagos State, meaning that the recently arrested kidnap kingpin, Chukwudubem Onwuamadike, a.k.a. Evans may get a life imprisonment or death penalty sentence.

The law provides for death penalty for kidnappers whose victims die in their custody, and life imprisonment for the act of kidnapping.

He said that kidnapping had become a major threat to the safety of residents and, therefore, required decisive action by the government.

“This law imposes a penalty of life imprisonment for kidnapping for ransom. “The law stipulates that, where a victim dies in the course of kidnapping, the suspect is liable on conviction to death. “Security is of utmost importance to our administration, and we are confident that this law will serve as a deterrent to anybody who may desire to engage in this wicked act within the boundaries of Lagos State. “Our justice system will be required to execute this law in absolute and make sure that any criminal caught faces the full wrath of the law,” he said.

Recall that Evans himself had advised kidnappers or intending ones to desist from the act, saying it does not pay any longer. He had said that if he can be caught, then nobody can escape the police being that the force has improved greatly in her anti-crime fight.

Evans, a  billionaire kidnap kingpin had successfully  coordinated and masterminded several high profile kidnappings and armed robberies within Lagos, Anambra and Enugu States. According to him, “My advise to them is that as they are watching me standing here with policemen, they should stop everything about that, it doesn’t pay.” He gave the advise to other kidnappers while leading police operatives to two houses in Ejigbo and Igando areas of Lagos state where he keeps his victims until huge ransoms are paid. 

According to him, he keeps most of his victims in the two houses for months. He said he even pays up to seven hundred thousand Naira, (700,000) yearly for a three bedroom flat çells’ where the victims are kept. Upon departure from Igando area Evans had opined, “The Nigeria Police is not what it is used to be. 

They are far more advanced than they were. If they could arrest me, there is no criminal they can’t arrest.”

Ogun State Mother Of 4, Aishat Akintunde, Dupes Facebook Lover Of N5 Million (Pic)

A single mother of four, Aishat Akintunde, 33, has been arrested in Lagos for allegedly defrauding her Facebook lover of money and properties valued at about N5 million.

Police alleged that Akintunde, a resident of Egbado road, Dalemo, Alakuko, Alagbada, Lagos and hailed from Abeokuta, Ogun State, allegedly succeeded in defrauding her France-based victim, Ayobami Adeniyi, after she promised to marry him and also helped him purchase a filling station in Nigeria.

Trouble started for the suspect when the DCP in charge of Federal SARS, Lagos, Ibrahim Kaoje dispatched a team led by DSP Olaniyi Festus to Sango Ota area of Ogun State to arrest a suspected female smuggler and bring her to the station following the tip off that she sold out an unregistered Renault bus with properties inside value at about N2.5 million for just N1 million.

During investigation, Akintunde allegedly told the police that she was not a smuggler and that her France-based Facebook lover shipped the bus for her to sell.

And to confirm the veracity of her claims, the police contacted the shipper of the bus who later turned out to be Ayobami Adeniyi.

Adeniyi reportedly told the police on the phone to arrest the woman and keep her in detention that he was on his way to Nigeria.

Within two days, Adeniyi arrived Nigeria and went straight to the FSARS office, Lagos, to narrate what happened between him and the suspect.

Adeniyi allegedly stated: “I am a Nigerian from Oyo State and based in France. I met the suspect Akintude on Facebook in November 2016. And in the cause of our discussion, the suspect told me that she was a divorcee and that if I was ready for a relationship I should send her money to rent an accommodation and I sent the sum of N100, 000 to her because I was desperately in need of a wife from Yoruba land.

“In February 2017, the suspect told me that her mother was a big time oil dealer in Nigeria managing three filing stations. She later told me that her mother was about to sell off one of the filing stations for N4 million and she advised me to purchase the station so that any time I returned to Nigeria to settle down with her, I would have investment to fall back on. She sent three pictures of the three filing station to me to convince me.

“I accepted her advice thinking that she was a honest woman who would be a good house wife. Before I started investing in the filing station, I requested to speak with her mother to confirm her claims and her mother equally confirmed through phone call that she was an oil dealer operating three filing stations in Nigeria and that she was about to sell one of the station for N4 million.

“Following her mother’s confirmation, I told the suspect to open an account in her name for me to be transferring money into it till the N4 million was completed to pay for the filing station. I transferred the sum of N750,000, N650,000, 250,000 and N200, 000 into her account. I equally sold my Peugeot car in Nigeria for N1 million and remitted the money into her account.

“I also shipped a Renault bus with properties inside valued about N2.5 million to her to sell and pay for the filing station. But I was surprised to hear that she did not buy any filing station, but instead converted all my money to her personal use and plunged me into dept.

“I am now appealing to the Nigerian Police to help me recover my money from the suspects,” Adeniyi appealed.

In her defence, Akintude allegedly admitted receiving only the sum of N1.5 million cash from the complainant and not N5 million which he was claiming and a bus which she sold for N1 million and used the process to buy an uncompleted building at Ijoko area of Sango Ota, Ogun State, Punch reports.

A police source said the suspect would be charge to court after the conclusion of investigation.

72Years Old Mother Of Finsbury Park 'Terrorist', Darren Osborne, Says, 'She Won't Defend Him'

The mother of the Finsbury Park suspect last night said she was 'not going to defend' her son and revealed she screamed in horror when she saw him on television.

Christine Osborne, 72, said that she had not seen her 47-year-old son Darren in one month and described him as being a 'complex' person.

Her son, from Cardiff, South Wales, was arrested on suspicion of murder and terror offences. She described the incident in Finsbury Park, North London, on Monday morning as being an 'atrocity' and spoke about her son's mental health issues.

Mrs Osborne insisted that her son had no problems with Muslims and added he had no links with far-Right groups and added he was not a racist.

She said: 'I'm not going to defend him, but he's my son and it's a terrible, terrible shock.

'It's not just robbing a bank, it's an atrocity. And at this moment in time, I can't cope with it, I can't. I don't want to say anything more.

'He is disturbed, and has been on medication. He's unemployed at the moment. He's got problems, but he's also got a wife and four kids, and we can't talk to his partner Sarah, she's somewhere safe.'

With her grandson Ellis, 26, who is mixed-race, next to her, she added: 'Darren would stand up and die for Ellis.'

'He's never spoken to me about terror attacks or talked about "bloody Muslims" - never in a million years and that's the truth.

'As a mum my heart goes out to everyone in Finsbury Park.'

It is alleged that Osborne - who was not known to police and MI5 - hired an £80-a-day van from South Wales before driving to the Muslim Welfare House in north London.
