I'm Not Happy With You - Charly Boy Calls Out 2Face

No comments :

Charly Boy has called out 2 Face Idibia of refusing to join the #ResumeorResign protest which he has now called off. If you recall, 2Face also cancelled his planned protest in February.

In a video posted on Instagram last night, the Area Fada said
“My guy 2face, I am not happy with you. Since I couldn’t reach you directly, I decided to reach you through this medium.

Do you remember when you called on Nigerian youths to come out and protest? We obeyed because we thought you had a good intention to stand up to the injustices against the youths and masses of this country.

But, as you retreated into a hole since then, I am very pained. If a beckon of hope like you can be lily-livered when people need you more, what is your problem?

“2face are you happy with the way Nigeria is headed? Are you saying you have not heard about the resume or resign protest, why are you not involved?”

EFCC Gun Attack: Security Beefed Up For Magu, Mother, Family

No comments :

Following the gun attack on EFCC head office in Abuja yesterday, Security has been strengthened for the Acting Chairman of the EFCC Mr. Ibrahim Magu and his family, including his aged mother.

It was learnt that some strangers have been prowling Magu’s residence in Maiduguri. Some policemen have been deployed in Magu’s uncompleted bungalow in Karshi, Abuja.

According to a source who who pleaded not to be named, the last seven months had been tough for Magu because of his refusal to bow to pressure from some high-profile suspects and Politically-Exposed Persons.

The source said the pressure had grave implications on Magu’s and his relations’ safety.

The development has led to the review of Magu’s and most of the key investigators’ security,The Nation reports.

The source said:
“In the past few weeks, security had been beefed up for Magu and his immediate family because of threats from some forces.
“His office was also recently reorganized in line with the new security model. It is so bad that Magu now keeps his itinerary to himself until the last minute.
“Hitherto, there was no protection for Magu’s aged mother in Maiduguri. But of recent, some suspected elements have been prowling the family house in the Borno State capital and issuing threats to the woman.
“Due to old age, the mother of the Acting chairman could not recognise these elements. To avoid any harm, security has now been provided in and around the house.
“And following the recent raid of Magu’s uncompleted building in Karshi, Abuja by some suspected agents, the police have deployed in more men for sentry duties.”
The source added:
“It has really been tough because the pressure is too much on Magu, EFCC investigators and their families.
“With the invasion of the strategic office of the EFCC in Zone 7, it is evident that we need to strengthen security for all our operatives.”

Four-Year-Old Pupil Killed At Shrine Behind Her Home In Lagos, Parents Arrested

No comments :

On Wednesday, a four-year-old girl, Faridat Sulyman, was found dead in a shrine at the back of her parents’ apartment.

The victim was reportedly recovered in a pool of blood at about 8pm on Tuesday with a deep cut on her throat.

PUNCH Metro learnt that the girl and her two siblings – Fawaz, 11, and Roqeebat, 9 – had gone to a summer school in the neighbourhood at about 2pm while their mother went to a market to buy foodstuffs.

From the school, they reportedly went to an Arabic school. After closing at about 7pm, they went to observe prayer in a mosque and subsequently went to their mother’s friend’s shop around the school to wait for her.

Faridat, who was playing around the shop, disappeared shortly before the mother arrived to take them home.
They were said to be searching for her when the mother, Bunmi Sulyman, stumbled on her body at the shrine at the back of their apartment.

It was gathered that the parents and eight neighbours had been picked up by the police for interrogation.

Bunmi, who spoke with PUNCH Metro at the Sabo Police Station, said she suspected that an elderly woman she had earlier sighted killed her daughter.

She said,
“The woman and a girl came around 8am with palm wine, salt, palm oil and a hen she wanted to slaughter at the shrine. I don’t know their names. After praying at the shrine, the woman called our neighbours’ children, but nobody answered her.
“It is one Ola Sheu and Kazeem, who normally help her to do the slaughtering. She called people from our compound, but nobody responded. She later left. I suspect she came back in the evening.
“After searching for my daughter for about an hour without success, I decided to observe Ishai (8pm) prayer. I wanted to perform ablution at the scene when I saw traces of blood. I initially thought it was the blood of the hen. I shone my torchlight on it and discovered that the blood was much.
“I traced the path of the blood and saw my daughter lying beside the shrine. Her throat was cut. They covered her mouth so that she would not scream. I raised the alarm and her father, who had been at home since 7pm, rushed out. We took her to different hospitals, but she was rejected. She was confirmed dead on arrival at the Yaba General Hospital."

Bunmi said although the owner of the shrine was late, his child, Lekan, worshipped there every year, adding that he usually used dogs to perform rituals at the shrine.

“Faridat was very smart and intelligent. She walked around the neighbourhood alone, but I never thought she would end up this way. She just finished kindergarten 1 and was given a prize for coming first in her class,” she added.

The state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, who confirmed the incident during a press briefing at the Police Officers’ Mess, Ikeja, on Tuesday, said he had visited “the Ogun shrine.”

He said,
“We have seen the tool with which that child was killed. We have taken about 10 persons into custody for interrogation, including the parents of the child. We are not saying categorically that they killed the child, but the 10 persons are being questioned. A preliminary investigation shows that there is actually an element of conspiracy in the matter.”

Prophet ,77 Arrested As Human Parts Are Found Buried Under Church In Ogun (Photos)

No comments :

The Ogun State Police Command has discovered a church under which human parts were allegedly buried.

The parts were allegedly buried at the church’s entrance and other locations within the premises.

The Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Ilyasu, made this known on Wednesday after detectives stormed the church to arrest the pastor of the church.

The church, Cherubim and Seraphim is located at Itedo Isinmi along Egan road in Iyana Iyesi area of Ota, in Ado-Odo/Ota local government of the state.

Mr. Ilyasu while parading a 77-year-old prophet of the church, Samuel Babatunde, alongside other suspects, told journalists that the discovery followed the arrest, on Saturday, of a suspected serial kidnapper, Jeremiah Adeola.

The police boss disclosed that Mr. Adeola (32), was known to specialise in the kidnapping of children for onward transmission to the prophet and had already confessed.

He said another herbalist, Haruna Afolabi (43), was among the suspects.

“The floor of the church was dug as described by the first suspect, and parts suspected strongly to be human parts were dug out from there,’’ the commissioner said.”

Mr. Ilyasu said the police command will conduct a forensic investigation to ascertain more details.

The arrested cleric, while speaking with journalists, denied the allegation levelled against him saying that he buried a pig inside the church contrary to claims that human parts were used.

He said he used the parts of the pig to attract good fortune to his church.
He said he met the other suspect, Adeola at a prayer mountain in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, but never had any ritualistic dealings with him claiming he (Adeola) was mentally deranged.

However, contrary to the cleric’s claim, Mr. Adeola insisted that the cleric was a client and recently paid him N50,000 each for the two children he supplied to him.

He also said one Olaniyi, at large, introduced him to the business of kidnapping in 2013 in Ibadan.

Most Smart Phone Users Suffer From Nomophobia

No comments :

Many people get an uneasy feeling of being without a mobile phone for just a short period of time, and scientists now believe they understand why this happens.

'Smartphone separation anxiety' it is not about being unable to make calls but rooted in the fact smartphones are where we store digital memories, a new study has found.
For many people posting on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter is part of how they experience life with their phones acting extensions of their being - which is why being without them can feel like losing a limb.
A study by Sungkyunkwan University and City University of Hong Kong found this condition - known as nomophobia - is only getting worse as our digital assistants being increasingly personalised.
Symptoms include being unable to turn off your phone, obsessively checking your phone, constantly topping up the battery and taking your phone to the bathroom.

'As smartphones evoke more personal memories, users extend more of their identity onto their smartphones,' researchers, led by Dr Kim Ki Joon, wrote in the paper, published in Cyberpsychology, Behavior and Social Networking.
'When users perceive smartphones as their extended selves, they are more likely to get attached to the devices, which, in turn, leads to nomophobia by heightening the phone proximity-seeking tendency', they said.

Researchers warned that this trend is likely to continue as phones carry out more and more functions.
