Return My Late Son To Me, Bereaved Father Begs Senator Stella Oduah

Ex-husband of Senator Stella Oduah, Lt. Col. Satchie Emmanuel Etoromi (Rtd.), has urged the ex-aviation minister to return his late son to him now in Warri, Delta State for burial.

Chief Etoromi speaking to newsmen in Warri shortly after sending a powerful delegation to the Igwe of Akili Ozizor, Ogbaru in Anambra State, royal majesty, Igwe D. O. Oduah, expressed sadness over the death of his son and how he was treated by the senator.

In his letter to the royal father titled, ''Appeal To Intercede To Ensure Senator Stella Adaeze Oduah Brings My Son,  Maxwell Chinedu Obiechina Wereyesigha Toritseju Etoromi To Me In Warri For Burial.'' The Etoromi said he read about the death of his 28 years old son in the newspapers without being informed by his ex-wife.

The letter reads, ''His Royal Highness Igwe Oduah 1, betrothed Stella Oduah to me on 18th November 1984 in Akili Ozizor. We married on the 16th of December 1984 in His Highness' Palace in Akili Ozizor. After the payment of dowry and exchange of gifts, we were taken to Nde-Mili where we performed the final rites.

   ''I am surprised to see in the internet stories that my son MAXWELL OMABUWA TEMISAREN OBIECHINA WEREYESIGHA TORITSEJU CHINEDU ETOROMI who Stella delivered for us on 14th March 1988 at 05.00 hour in St Mary's Hospital Ugboroke Warri is dead.

   ''Up till now Stella has not told me my son died in her custody. There is rumour that my son will be buried in Akili Ozizor.

   ''THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE AT ALL. My son must be brought to me in Warri for internment.''

The letter which was copied to Most Reverend Valerian Okeke, The Arch-Bishop of Onitsha, and the Parish Priest, Father, Donald Uzoh of Sacred Heart Parish,  added that ''Stella should also bring back EYITUOYO FELIX KENNETH ORITSETIMEYIN IKECHUKWU ETOROMI who was delivered on 1st August 1989 at 0 5.30 hour in St Mary's Hospital Ugboroke Warri whom she took away from our home over twenty years ago.''

Chief Etoromi explained to the monarch that the stories needed not be told now,  but his grief at Omabuwa's transition was too much to bear, hence he is is reacting this way.

It would be recalled that Akili Ozizor,the quiet country home of Nigeria’s former Aviation minister and presently the Senator representing Anambra North Senatorial Zone, Princess Stella Adaeze Oduah, on Monday witnessed an unusual heavy vehicular and human movement when sympathisers,friends and dignitaries from across Anambra state rallied for vigil mass for the peaceful repose of the soul of late master Maxwell Chinedu, son of Senator Oduah who died last Friday at the age of 28.

The Archbishop of Onitsha and Metropolitan of Onitsha Ecclesiastical Province, Most Rev Valerian Okeke presided over the mass with other four priests concelebrating.

The Archbishop condoled with the entire family and described the death of Chinedu as a big trial moment for the family and urged them not to mourn as people without faith.

According to the Archbishop, it is not the age one lived that matters but what one achieved in his life time.

In his homily,the Episcopal Vicar of Dunukofia Region,Onitsha Archdiocese,Very Rev Fr Theophilus Odukwe likened the death of Chinedu to that of the Biblical John the Baptist whose life was cut short at a young age,a situation which he said faith had ordained.

Fr Odukwe pointed out that in many cases and particularly in history,many achievers in history concluded their earthly journeys early in life adding that God in his infinite wisdom called the late Chinedu home after concluding his earthly assignment.

He drew analogy on the vanity of life when he pointed out that neither wealth,power or money can give life but that God almighty gives life and takes as he wishes.

One of those who arrived early for the mass are the former Secretary to the Federal Government,Chief Anyim Pius Anyim,Anambra State PDP chairman,Chief Ken Emeakayi,former Onitsha South Local government Chairman,Chief Ejidike, the Chief of Staff,Princess Stella Oduah Foundation,Princess Nwaka Ononuju,Director of Stella Oduah Campaign Organisation,Chief Pandola Okwuosa,and many others.

Catholic Priest, Rev. Father Anthony Ochigbo, Who Raped 10-Year Old Girl In Abuja, Faces Fresh Charges

The Federal Capital Territory Police Command, yesterday, said it had concluded plans to dock a Catholic priest, Reverend Father Anthony Ochigbo, before an Abuja High Court over allegation that he raped a 10-year-old girl.

The Officer-in-Charge of Legal Matters at the Command, James Idachaba, made the disclosure after he applied and withdrew an initial one-count rape charge Police entered against the priest before an Abuja Upper Area Court at Gudu. 

The Upper Area court judge, Alhaji Umar Kagarko, had on Monday, remanded Rev. Ochigbo in prison custody, even as he adjourned ruling on the defendant’s application for bail. 

However, at the resumed sitting, the prosecuting counsel, Chief Superintendent of Police, Idachaba, persuaded the Upper Area Court judge to hands off the matter for a higher court to take over the trial. 

Idachaba, who anchored his application on Section 106 of Administration of Criminal Justice Act, ACJA, 2015, stressed that the Upper Area Court was bereft of the requisite jurisdiction to handle the case. 

The prosecution told the court that it was the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), that okayed the transfer of the matter to a higher court. 

Despite objection by the defence counsel, Mr. Godwin Chukwukere, the court acceded to the withdrawal request. The judge said he had no option than to strike out the initial First Information Report before him and discharge the defendant. 

Nevertheless, the priest is still in police detention awaiting his arraignment before the high court. *My goodness! Such a disgrace to the Catholic Church!!*

Pic: Shocking Video Of Man Having Sex With A Snake Found On A 55Years Old Nigerian Doctor's Phone In U.K

Cyprian Okoro, 55, was caught with a stash of 'extreme' pornography, including a video of a man having sex with a snake, a court heard. He allegedly stored the images on his phone, having received them via WhatsApp, the Old Bailey heard.

They included three videos of a woman having sex with a dog, one of a man having sex with a snake and one of a woman having sex with a horse. Okoro is charged with five counts of possessing pornography of a 'grossly offensive, disgusting or otherwise obscene character'.

He is also accused of one charge of possessing indecent images of a child relating to a video of a two-year-old boy. The footage came to light when his phone was seized by the police and examined by specialist officers, before being returned.

The videos were found to have been stored on a password protected specialist App or vault. In his police interview, Okoro said pictures would be sent to him on WhatsApp and automatically go into his photos gallery. .

Prosecutor Nicola Devas, however, said since the indecent videos had been manually moved to the vault, it was clear he had viewed it. Okoro, of Streatham, south west London, denies the charges against him.

Kim Kardashian West 'Shows Off' Her Nipples In A Sheer Bustier, As She Steps Out With Hubby, Kanye West

Kanye West's creative power was on full display as his wife, Kim Kardashian West, stepped out in what can only be surprised as a bizarre outfit on Tuesday.

While Kim may of course have picked out her clothes herself, it certainly seemed as if Kanye had been playing stylist.
There was nothing ordinary about the outfit, which saw her step out in a leather bustier featuring entirely sheer panels at the breast.

But her visible nipples were not even the most eye-catching thing, with Kim switching out her usual high heels for some fluffy mules.
Her slimmed down legs were on show in some shapewear-esque cycling shorts, a pair of Spanx peeking out from beneath - surely a deliberate move.. Hmmm.. See more pics below..

Pic: 4-Man Robbery Gang Who Specialises In Switching Off Generators Of Their Victims Before Attacking Them, Have Been Nabbed In Lagos

The Anti-Robbery Squad of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, has arrested a four-man gang that had allegedly been terrorising residents of the Ikorodu area of Lagos State.

The suspects, Akin Ayotunde, Isaac Ogbonna, Sola Dede and Sodiq Lawal, specialised in lurking around houses at night and switching off their victims’ generators before attacking them.

They, however, met their waterloo last Thursday when they were arrested after invading the apartment of one Bello Hakeem in the Igbe area.

Punch was told that the suspects spent six hours in the victim’s duplex and went away with his car, generator, money, phones, Automated Teller Machine cards, modems, laptops and cash.

They also stole his wife’s jewellery and withdrew N100,000, using one of the ATM cards.

Hakeem told a Punch correspondent that around 11.09pm on Tuesday, he observed that his generator suddenly went off and he asked two of his children to go outside and fix the problem.

    ''About five minutes after they left, they were forced back into the house by four men, who were armed with knives.

   ''They ordered us to cooperate with them. They searched the house and made away with three laptops, six phones, three ATM cards, a new 3.5KVA generator, one 75alms battery, two modems, jewellery, cash, and my Toyota Corolla. They held my family hostage for six hours before leaving at about 6am the next day.'' He added.

Hakeem, an environmental scientist, said he reported the incident at the Ijede Police Station, adding that the suspects were able to withdraw N100,000 from his First Bank account before he deactivated all the stolen ATM cards.

He said two days after the incident, a friend called him that a car that looked like his own had been put up for sale.

He said operatives from the SCIID, Yaba, were alerted and the suspects were rounded up.

The four suspects, who confessed to the crime, said they operated with knives to avoid bloodshed.

The gang leader, Ayotunde, 27, said, ''I used to sell garri with my grandma in a market before former Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola, demolished shops in the market. I tried another job, but it didn’t work.

   ''I then sold the idea of robbing houses to my friends and we agreed to use only knives and not guns. We always lurk around developing areas in Ikorodu at night, look for any house that had its generator on, scale the fence and put off the generator. When the occupants of the house come out to check the generator, we attack. We made N60,000 from our first operation in March.

   ''I was arrested when the man whom I had given the man’s car to called me that he had found a buyer. He said the buyer had paid N700,000 for the vehicle and that I should come for my share. We agreed to meet at a restaurant in Ojota. But on getting there, I discovered that it was a set up and I was arrested.''

Ogbonna, 23, an indigene of Ebonyi State, said he was looking for money for the treatment of his elder sister when he was invited to join the gang.

   ''My sister needed blood transfusion and I had to look for money by all means. I got N25,000 from the operation.'' He added.

The third suspect, 24-year-old Dede, from Ondo State, said he joined the group because he was told nobody would be killed, adding that he needed money to change his apartment.

He said, ''An Alfa told me to move out of my family house because there was a spiritual force working against the success of men in the house. I needed money to change my apartment.''

The police also arrested the receiver of some of the stolen items, Akeem Lawal, who claimed that the suspects lied to him that the goods were imported.

The Police Public Relations officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the arrest, adding that investigations were ongoing.

She said, ''The last house they robbed belonged to a couple who quickly alerted the police. They were trailed and arrested. They are currently undergoing interrogation at the command.''

Here's Why Facebook Founder, Mark Zuckerberg Arrived Nigeria Unannounced

Facebook Founder, Mark Zuckerberg, yesterday, arrived Nigeria unannounced. The 32-year-old tech enterpreneur surprisingly made a sudden visit and inspection of activities at the Co-Creation Hub, Yaba Lagos.

His arrival to Nigeria is not unconnected to the ‘Facebook for developers’ workshop’ for Nigerian engineers, product managers and partners holding today in Lagos.
The event is expected to help the engineers build better applications and monetise them more effectively.

Before his arrival, it was earlier announced that the company’s Director of Global product Partnerships, Nigeria’s Ime Archibong, was to lead speakers to the event where Facebook would unveil a ten-year roadmap that can help improve Nigeria’s economy

Facebook is an online social networking service based in Menlo Park, California, United States, which Zuckerberg and his fellow Harvard College students and roommates, Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes formed on February 4, 2004.

After its initial public offering, IPO in February 2012, Facebook began selling stock to the public three months later, reaching an original peak market capitalization of $104 billion. On July 13, 2015, it became the fastest company in the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index to reach a market cap of $250 billion.
As of March this year, Facebook had hit over 1.65 billion monthly active users out of which 7.1 million people are daily users from Nigeria. This makes the country Africa’s biggest user of the social media platform.

However, Vanguard gathered that it was for security reasons that Zuckerberg’s plan to visit Nigeria and his eventual arrival was kept top secret.

A close source who spoke to Vanguard said: ''It was a top secret and nobody was meant to know before his arrival. It was actually for security reasons but now that he is here, he would be able to interact with tech professionals and other Nigerians in a press conference at Eko Hotel and Suites tomorrow (today).''

Being his first trip to Africa, Zuckerberg on arrival met with developers and partners, and also explored Nollywood.

One of his first stops on the trip was to visit a ‘Summer of Code Camp’ at the Co-Creation Hub (CcHub) in Yaba, known as the Silicon Valley of Nigeria where young developers learn how to code and develop their solutions while looking for mentors and angel investors.

At CcHub, Zuckerberg met with developers like Temi Giwa, who runs a platform called Life Bank that makes blood available when and where it is needed in Nigeria.

Life Bank saves lives by mobilizing blood donations, taking inventory of all blood available in the country, and delivering blood in the right condition to where it is needed.

Thrilled by level of technology development at the CcHub, Mark Zuckerberg, said,

   ''This is my first trip to sub-Saharan Africa. I’ll be meeting with developers and entrepreneurs, and learning about the startup ecosystem in Nigeria. The energy here is amazing and I’m excited to learn as much as I can.

  ''The first place I got to visit was the Co-creation Hub Nigeria (CcHUB) in Yaba. I got to talk to kids at a summer coding camp and entrepreneurs who come to CcHub to build and launch their apps. I’m looking forward to meeting more people in Nigeria.''
