Akpabio Says Any Money He Owns In Foreign Accounts Should Be Seized

Former governor of Akwa Ibom State, Senator Godswill Akpabio has denied owning any property in Dubai, United Arab Emirate or any other foreign country. 

He then challenged the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to seize any money found in a foreign bank account bearing his name.
The Senate Minority Leader stated this on Friday in a statement issued by his media assistant, Anietie Ekong, where he denied a newspaper report that he had made a secret attempt to withdraw $7.2 billion from banks in Dubai, United Arab Emirate, through channels in the Central Bank of Nigeria.

It would be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari had recently signed agreements with the United Arab Emirate on the repatriation of Nigeria’s stolen funds deposited in that country. This move is believed to have unsettled corrupt, former and serving Nigerians officials, who have unexplained wealth and property there.

Noting that the media report against him was sponsored by his political opponents, Akpabio said the government should investigate the source of such money and also prosecute its owner.

According to him, “We challenge these purveyors of falsehood to publish the full details of the purported $7.2 billion account and we urge the Federal Government of Nigeria to seize such sum and prosecute the owner if it does exist.

“People should learn to accept the outcome of elections and stop this kind of dangerous propaganda in the name of politics,” he stated.

Nurse who faked cancer and pocketed $25K in donations arrested

Police arrested a Georgia medical professional who they say for years duped kind-hearted loved ones and strangers into thinking she had Stage IV ovarian cancer to walk away with at least $25,000 in donations, free trips and gifts.

Mary Bennett, 29, spoke of her battle with cancer on social media for years, writing about the things she still wanted to cross off her “bucket list” and thanking friends for their generosity as they donated to her cause, the Forsyth County Sheriff's office told INSIDE EDITION.

The licensed practical nurse's ambitions to live life to the fullest inspired those around Bennett, who officials said was treated to a wide range of experiences financed through fundraisers and gifts.
Trips and experiences included skydiving, a trip to New Orleans, a hot air balloon ride and a trip to Houston, Texas for a supposed medical treatment made possible by a local fundraiser that brought in $4,000, officials said.
“I just wanted to tell you all, thank you! I am so very appreciative for the donations and the orders that people have placed… It's certainly hard going thru cancer at any age. But for this to be the 2nd time in my short 27 years has certainly made me wiser and humbled,” Bennett wrote on a Facebook page created to raise funds for her cause.
Bennett, whose Twitter bio noted she was “a nurse... I’m also an Ovarian Cancer Survivor!” claimed to have been diagnosed with Stage III ovarian cancer in 2013. She wrote on Facebook that she was laid off from her job in August of that year and was struggling to pay her bills.
“I can promise that once I'm better I will pay forward your kind acts through my career as a nurse and through donations,” she wrote. “Again thank you all so much! It truly means the world to me!”
But Bennett had never been diagnosed with cancer, according to officials and that there was no record of her receiving treatment anywhere.
“Her family was completely in the dark. She would go to these doctors and her family would take her, but no one ever actually went in with her. She was not actually having procedures,” Deputy Epifanio Rodriguez with the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office said.
At one point, Bennett allegedly claimed the cancer had spread to her brain and to her brainstem, he said. She allegedly said that she needed to undergo a special Gamma Knife procedure at the cancer hospital  MD Anderson to battle the four tumors found.
"She went to the extreme and shaved her head, put bandages on her head," Rodriguez said.
She explained away the lack of scars from such procedures by saying "It was a miracle,".
Bennett was charged with misdemeanor theft by taking and felony first-degree forgery, according to reports.
She was hit with the latter charge after she allegedly provided investigators with forged letters from Emory Winship Cancer Institute to prove that she was a patient receiving treatment.
"We found out it was a fraudulent signature," Rodriguez said. "Not only were told 'we never treated her,' but also 'we have no idea who Mary Bennett' is."
Rodriguez said the misdemeanor theft charge could be upgraded to a felony if investigators find more people with proof that they were allegedly victimized by Bennett.
"We've had about a dozen (additional) people call us saying that they were victims," he said. "There's evidence that she was doing this since 2010," he continued. "In the State of Georgia, that is a crime. You cannot deceive people into getting funds from them. It is a crime."

US Muslim man who plotted attack against a temple and Israelis arrested by the FBI

A Milwaukee man arrested on a charge of trying to buy machine guns to carry out an attack on a Masonic temple also wanted to travel to the Middle East and kill Israelis but abandoned that plan as unworkable, federal agents said in court documents.
Federal prosecutors charged 23-year-old Samy Mohamed Hamzeh on Tuesday with unlawfully possessing a machine gun and receiving and possessing firearms not registered to him.

The FBI recorded conversations between Hamzeh and two federal informants talking about an attack on a Masonic temple in Milwaukee, according to an affidavit setting out the evidence against Hamzeh.

He and the two informants traveled to a gun range on Jan. 19 and practiced with a pistol, the affidavit said. Afterward they took a tour of a Masonic temple, which federal authorities declined to identify.
Masons are members of a fraternal organization that carries out a variety of activities, including charity work. Wisconsin has nearly 11,000 Masons in 180 lodges, according to Frank Struble, grand master of Free and Accepted Masons in Wisconsin. The organization is not a religion.

According to the affidavit, agents were tipped off in September that Hamzeh planned to travel to Israel in October to attack Israeli soldiers and citizens in the West Bank. He abandoned those plans due to "family, financial and logistic reasons," the affidavit said, but refocused his efforts on a domestic attack.

Federal agents said that on Jan. 19 and into the early morning of Jan. 20, Hamzeh discussed his plans to attack the temple with the informants, telling them they needed two more machine guns — the group apparently already had one — and silencers. They planned to station one person at the temple's entrance while the other two went through the building, killing everyone they saw. They then planned to walk away from the scene as if nothing had happened, the affidavit said.
"I am telling you, if this hit is executed, it will be known all over the world ... all the Mujahedeen will be talking and they will be proud of us," Hamzeh said, according to the affidavit.
Hamzeh added that he hoped to kill 30 people, "because these 30 will terrify the world."
According to the affidavit, Hamzeh met with two undercover FBI agents Monday. They presented him with two automatic machine guns and a silencer. He paid for the weapons and silencer in cash and put them in the trunk of his car, the affidavit said. The agents then arrested him and recovered the guns and silencer.

Hamzeh had been fired recently from his job as a trainer at a downtown Milwaukee gym, said Delia Luna, the owner of the9Round Kickbox Fitness. She said he was "very intense, very militant" as a trainer.
"He didn't mix well," Luna said.

Saudi Arabia Bans CHESS After Grand Mufti Says It's 'A Waste Of Time'

Saudi Arabia's top religious cleric has ruled that chess is forbidden for Muslims because it is a 'waste of time' and promotes gambling.

Grand mufti Abdul Aziz bin-Abdullah issued the fatwa ahead of a major chess tournament in Mecca tomorrow.

He said the game was 'an opportunity to squander money' and fell under the category of gambling which is banned in the Qu'ran.

Saudi Arabia's Grand Mufti Abdul Aziz bin-Abdullah (left) has issued a religious fatwa declaring that chess (right, file picture) is forbidden for Muslims because it is 'a waste of time' and promotes gambling

He added: 'The game of chess is a waste of time... it causes enmity and hatred between people.'
Abdullah made the declaration while answering questions from viewers on his weekly show With His Eminence The Mufti, it was reported by The Middle East Eye.
Muslims often follow personal religious guidance given by senior clerics, but their declarations are not legally binding.

Musa Bin Thaily, president of the law committee at the Saudi Chess Association, said a tournament would go ahead as planned tomorrow despite the fatwa, which he said was issued last month.  
He said on Twitter: 'Many things are said to be illegal and religiously banned in #Saudi.
'For example, the religious society view, bans the public musical festivals, but they're everywhere, the view isn't enforced by the law.' 

He added that the Grand Mufti 'being an old man in his 80s' was unaware that players do not usually bet on the outcome of games. 

One of Britain's greatest ever chess players, Nigel Short, said banning chess in Saudi Arabia would be a 'great tragedy.'
He told BBC Radio 4's Today Programme: 'I don't consider chess to be a threat to society.It's not something that is so depraved as to corrupt morals.'
Iran banned chess after the 1979 Islamic revolution because of it's association with gambling.
But it was repealed by then supreme leader, Ayatollah Rouhollah Khomeini, in 1988 on the condition it was not used as a conduit by gamblers.

Man Arrested for Withdrawing N11m from Another Man's Bank Account in Enugu Blames Poverty

A 56-year-old man, one Felix Onyebuchi, who is in police net in Enugu for allegedly using fraudulent means to withdraw the sum of N11m from the account of a bank customer, has blamed “lack” for his venture into crime.

Onyebuchi, a native of Osa-Ukwu, in Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia State, but based in Lagos, was paraded alongside other criminals by the Enugu State Police Command.

Enugu State commissioner of police, Mr. NwodiboEkechukwu, disclosed that Onyebuchi was a member of a sophisticated syndicate that specialised in stealing and manipulating bank data.

According to the police chief, the syndicate usually applied to mobile telecommunication service 
providers to ‘welcome-back’ registered phone numbers that belong to their potential victims.

In the process, according to Ekechukwu, they block the real account owners and, through the phone numbers, get access to sensitive personal information, including bank data.

Once they obtain the relevant bank data, members of the syndicate are able to make withdrawals from their victims’ bank accounts, the commissioner of police added.

Ekechukwu further explained that Onyebuchi’s arrest followed complaints made by a Port-Harcourt-based customer of an old generation bank, who notified the police of a series of unauthorised withdrawals from his account.

The victim, whose identity was not disclosed, had informed the police that the withdrawals were made from the Enugu branch of his bank, which was also not named.

The police commissioner added that, following investigations, Onyebuchi was arrested while he was attempting to withdraw N50m from another potential victim’s account.

Onyebuchi is currently in police custody, as further investigation into his activities, and that of his syndicate, continues.

However, in a short encounter with journalists when he was paraded, the suspect said he ventured into crime because of “lack.”

But journalists observed that he did not look like somebody who lacked money.

Reacting to the newsmen’s observations, the alleged fraudster asked, “How can you tell who is lacking money from physical appearance?

“It is the state of the pocket that determines whether one is lacking, or not,” he added.

Onyebuchi also claimed that he did not steal money from any bank customer.

According to him, he was only caught in the process of stealing.

“I was caught while attempting to take money from an account in UBA.

“I have not taken money from anybody, I was just about to take money when I was arrested,” he said.

Amaraizu said the suspect will be charged to court soon.

"I have learnt not to look down on a fellow mortal, except I 'm admiring his shoes"- Goodluck Jonathan

Remarks by former pres. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference,
Atlanta, on Thursday 14th, January, 2016.

He said:
"I thank the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, for inviting and honoring me today, and especially so, as this invitation comes right about the period when the world stands still in recognition of the selfless sacrifice of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
When we think of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), it is virtually impossible to separate this worthy body from its founder, the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, or from epoch making landmark events of the American Civil Rights movement.
I am pleased to know that the Southern Christian Leadership Conference is not just one of the great American institutions, it is also one of her more potent vehicles for the advancement of liberty and freedom for all God’s people. For that, I also commend Charles Steele for his leadership and commitment to peace and justice nationally and globally.
The Southern Christian Leadership Conference and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s principles of non violent protests played a great part in the independence movement in my native country Nigeria and indeed throughout Africa as a whole.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr witnessed the British Union Jack being lowered in Ghana in 1957 when Ghana became the first Sub-Saharan African nation to gain independence, an action which set off a positive chain reaction all over the continent.
In 1963, Ambassador Leslie O. Harriman, Nigeria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, who prosecuted our anti apartheid strategy at the UN, testified of the support he received from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr in kick starting that noble effort.
Suffice to say that the efforts of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr in advancing Liberty and equal rights transcended national boundaries.
Speaking for my foundation, the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation, I must say that I have been inspired by this great man and the worthy institutions and legacies he left behind and I am further inspired to continuing doing good and advancing human freedoms just by being present here today.
My personal takeaway from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, is service to God and the brotherhood and equality of all men before their Creator.
In keeping with that, I have learnt not to look up to any man, except he is taller than I, or to look down on a fellow mortal, except I am admiring his shoes.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. famously said: "Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice. Justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love".
Those words helped me deliver on my stated promise to deepen democracy in Nigeria and in the process demonstrate through action that nobody’s political ambition is worth the blood of any Nigerian.
Once again, I thank the Southern Christian Leadership Conference for having me. May God bless you and continue to raise up from among you men and women who will continue in the footsteps of your worthy forebears."

Student Cultists Surrender In OAU As Papa Adeboye Ministers

No fewer than 15 students of Obafemi Awolowo University who are involved in cultism have surrendered and renounced their membership in the course of the ministration of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E. A. Adeboye.

The 2016 edition of the annual University Thanksgiving Service and maiden Holy Ghost Night for the youths held yesterday at the new Crusade Ground of the institution and had Pastor Adeboye minster during the evening session. The minister who spoke on the topic: ‘The right hand of the Lord’ mentioned seven powerful characteristics of the right hand of God. He said the Power of God is qualitative, quantitative, defiles time, creative, defiles space, defiles the laws of nature and that it surpasses other powers.

Following the altar call where those willing to give their lives to Christ were called to the front space and prayed for, the cleric further made a call to students who have joined and are members any cultist group to come out and surrender to God and embrace the most powerful power which is that of God.

“If you have been deceived into joining a cult, now you know that there is power beyond ordinary powers and you want to say bye bye to the devil and come completely clean, I will love to pray for you tonight that any evil covenant you have entered be destroyed.” Adeboye said.

The cultists including male and female students numbering over fifteen (15) rushed to the space provided for them following the call and were prayed for by the minister. This edition of the programme is the fifth and the last for the Professor Bamitale Omole-led administration of the institution. A new Vice Chancellor is expected to emerge sometimes during the middle of the year.

Open Heavens 13 January 2016: Wednesday daily devotion by Pastor E. A. Adeboye - Being with Jesus

Memorise: Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  – Matthew 11:29

Read: Acts 4:13-14 (KJV)

13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

14 And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.

Bible in One Year: Deuteronomy 7:1-9:12; Job 3:3-19


It is one thing to answer the call of Jesus Christ, and it is another thing to stay put with Him after we answer the call. There are casual followers of Jesus Christ and there are die-hard followers as well. The casual followers of Jesus Christ have their reasons for casually following Him. One of it may be because they cannot live by the ideals that Jesus teaches in His gospel. Being with Jesus means living by His teachings, He once lamented:

"And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” - Luke 6:46

Many call Jesus “Lord” with their mouth but indeed, they do not regard Him as the Lord of their lives. This is why, for the avoidance of doubt, Jesus said:

“31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” - John 8:31-32

Two things are clear from our Bible reading for today; the first is, if you have been with Jesus indeed, boldness will be your trademark. The Bible says:

“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” - Romans 8:15

When a so-called child of God is living in fear, we must check out whether indeed he has been with Jesus. Secondly; someone who has been with Jesus lives a daily miraculous life, this is another trademark of genuine followers of Jesus Christ. The Bible says:

“And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.” - Acts 4:14

I have taught my children in the School of Disciples that we can do more than Jesus did according to His promise. When we believe this, we stop being caricatures of His Ambassadors on earth. Then, we shall bring the whole world to their knees, when we confidently tell them that Jesus is Lord. We are indeed the light and salt of the world if we chose to be with Jesus, living according to His ideals. Two great blessings of being with Jesus are: we shall learn of Him and when we learn of Him, we shall find rest for our souls. Come to Jesus today and decide to stay put. Don’t be a casual or temporary follower of Jesus Christ.

Action Point: Make up your mind to live the rest of your life for and with Jesus today and you will be a blessed person.

Man Causes Stir in Asaba Church

Activity in a church was disrupted on Saturday when a middle aged man, suspected to be insane, walked into the church and shouted, “I want God to forgive me.”

It was gathered that the church situated along Ezeani Quarters in Asaba, conducts prayer session every Saturday morning.

An eyewitness, Faith Nwokorie said the man appearance sent many worshippers scampering to different directions, though the pastors and few worshipers remained calm.

A senior pastor of the church, Chukas Okorie, said:

 “God is doing wonderful things this year 2016; the man is insane but as we were praying he walked into the church hall and asked God for forgiveness. I tried to lay hands on him but he pulled my hands off the body and moved out of the church hall causing a scene among the worshippers.
Sources said the man was a native of Asaba, who once was a teacher after leaving Saint Patrick College, Asaba.

A woman, Mrs. Beatrice Nwanbueze, who spoke to Punch, said it was likely madness ran in the man’s family, saying two of his brothers became insane after their parents reportedly died in a mysterious circumstance.

Woman Tortures 9-year-old Housemaid with Hot Water for ‘Stealing’ Crayfish (Graphic Photo)

A nine-year-old housemaid, Precious Chinwedu, says she is still having pains two weeks after her boss, Mrs. Ifeoma Mbakwe, poured hot water on her for allegedly stealing crayfish.

The incident happened around 8pm on December 27 on Idowu Oya Street, Agbado, Lagos State.

The primary 3 pupil, who spoke with PUNCH Metro on Friday at Rem-Yems, a private hospital in Agbado, where she was admitted, said the woman had sent her to bring the crayfish in the kitchen.

Chinwedu said she had explained to her boss that she could not find the crayfish, but the woman accused her of eating it without her permission. She said Mbakwe angrily took a small pestle and hit 
her in the head.

Not done, Mbakwe, the mother of a seven-month-old baby, reportedly bit the girl in the back before pouring the hot water on her. She said:
 “She (Mbakwe) said I should bring crayfish, but I told her I did not see it. She said I ate it. She used something we used to grind pepper to hit my head. She bit me in the back and poured hot water on me.”
The girl, who hails from Orlu, Imo State, said, apart from regular beating, the woman would not give her lunch, adding that she wanted to go back to her parents.
“She does not give me food regularly. There is no food for me in the afternoon when I come back from the school. Sometimes, she would not give me food in the evening. I was brought to Lagos in July. She always beat me. I want to go back to my parents,” she said.
A nurse at the hospital, who did not want her name in print, said the clothes which Chinwedu wore when she was brought to the hospital was removed from her body with scissors.
“The woman said the girl mistakenly poured hot water on herself. She was in pains. We have treated her and she is now getting better,” she said.
A neigbour of Ifeoma, who identified herself as Abe, said they had cautioned her to stop beating the girl to no avail.
“If any of the neighbours gave her food, she would beat her. We talked to her several times to stop beating the girl, but she refused. I was not at home on the day the incident happend, she did not allow anybody to intervene,” she added.
The President, Youth Alive Ojokoro, Babalola Saheed, said Mbakwe initially said the girl was her child, but later told the police that she was her housemaid and that she punished her for stealing a piece of meat. He said:
 “A member called me on December 30, 2015, to come to the hospital to see the girl. I met the woman and asked how it happened. She lied that the girl was her daughter.
“She was not remorseful. I contacted the Ojokoro Police Station and she was arrested. She was later transferred to Isokoko Police Division and she told the police that the girl stole a piece of meat from the pot and ate the baby’s food. 
We later learnt that she had taken her to a nurse for treatment before she brought her to the hospital.”
Meanwhile, Mbakwe had been arraigned before an Ogba Magistrates’ Court last Tuesday on two counts of assault. She was granted bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum after she pleaded not guilty to the counts.

The case was adjourned till January 27, 2016.

Doctor Arrested for Duping & Impregnating Client in Lagos (Photo)

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a native doctor, Ifatade Elegbeleye, for allegedly duping and impregnating a female client, Cecilia (pseudonym), in the Ipaja area of the state.

PUNCH Metro learnt that 42-year-old Elegbeleye, who hails from Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, was arrested by the X-Squad section of the command after the victim complained to the police.

The suspect was said to have been arrested on December 21, 2015.

Elegbeleye, who told PUNCH Metro that he had sex with the lady, added that he and the woman fell
in love with each other, while the sex was by mutual consent.

Elegbeleye added that the victim had given birth to a baby girl for him.

According to the police, the native doctor allegedly had a culture of turning his female clients into house maids after having sex with some of them.

The police added that Cecilia’s mother, who is a trader in Abesan Estate, Ipaja, had also been allegedly defrauded by the native doctor to the tune of N7.9m in 2015.

Cecilia was taken to Elegbeleye in November 2014, to seek spiritual help on issues bordering on late marriage and spiritual husband.

It was learnt that Elegbeleye, who had his centre at Olude bus stop in the Ipaja area, however, allegedly took advantage of the situation to impregnate Cecilia, as well as dupe the family.

The police alleged that the native doctor had built two houses ─ one in Lagos and the other in Ekiti State ─ from the proceeds of the fraud.

Speaking with PUNCH Metro, Cecilia, said she met the native doctor at a bus stop on an evening in November 2014, adding that he allegedly hypnotised her into having an affair with him.

She said:
 “I met him as a cab driver at the Iyana Ipaja Roundabout. We never knew that the man was a fraudster and was into occultism. He first became friendly with my mother. After that, one thing led to another until he sexually assaulted me and defrauded my mother.”
However, Elegbeleye told Punch that there was no truth in Cecilia’s claims, adding that after she gave birth to a child for him, he rented a two-bedroomed apartment for her.

He said:
“It is true that I am a native doctor and I treated her for ulcer and spiritual problems. She had a spiritual husband. She was having ‘promise and fail offer’ from men. So, we started befriending each other and in the process, she got pregnant for me.
“The woman now brought policemen to my house to arrest me. She has a girl for me. I did not use force to sleep with her. Can you hypnotise a woman who does not love you? It is not possible. She loved me. Her family wants to take all my property. That is why they are lying against me. Where did they get the N7m they are claiming? Are they rich?”
A police source said Cecelia’s child was living with the victim’s parents in Abesan Estate.

He said:
“The suspect had been in the Kirikiri Prison on remand bordering on a similar offence. It was when he came out that we arrested him for this case. He took advantage of the lady’s problems to have sex with her and she became pregnant and had a girl for him. The girl is with the victim’s family. We are investigating the native doctor for a case of conspiracy, stealing and sexual harassment.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmus, confirmed the arrest.

She added that Elegbeleye would be charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded on the matter.

She said, “The matter is being investigated by operatives of the X-Squad after a petition was received by the Commissioner of Police. Investigation is still ongoing on the matter, and the suspect will be charged to court once investigation is concluded.”

“The Dangote Group approached us to indicate their interest to invest in refining crude, such that petrol-chemicals, fertiliser and fuel will be produced, about three years ago.
“Today, the three projects, which are valued at 14 billion dollars (N2.8 trillion), are on course and this is highly commendable, ‘’ he said.
“By the time this refinery is completed, it will not only service the needs of our domestic economy but shore up our international oil investments.
“Projects like this and our support will encourage more Nigerians to begin to think like the Dangote Group,” the CBN boss added.
 Aliko Dangote, Chairman, Dangote Group, on the other hand said that the refinery would commence commercial operations in early 2018 and that the fertilizer production aspect of the refinery would be completed by 2017.
He said:
“We are set to unveil the world’s largest refinery which will make Nigeria self-sufficient in petroleum products refining and also become a major exporter of oil.This project will mark a turning point in Nigeria’s search for local refining of crude oil.
“We will ensure the value chain in crude oil production is uplifted and other facilitators properly integrated into our scheme,” he said.

Saudi Arabia executes Ethiopian woman convicted of murder

An Ethiopian woman, Jinat Farid was found guilty of killing Ghalia Eida al-Harithi by striking her repeatedly with an axe as the victim knelt to perform Muslim prayers, the ministry said in a statement carried by state news agency, SPA. After killing Harithi, Farid stole two gold rings and an unspecified amount of money, the ministry said. She was executed in the western city of Taif.

The ministry did not specify any connection between the culprit and the victim, but the kingdom hosts large numbers of domestic workers that come from African and South Asian countries.

Blind Prophet Releases 2016 Prophecies About Buhari And APC

Kasali who is a blind prophet warned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) against mismanaging the electoral success it at­tained in the 2015 general election, Daily Sun reports.

Prophet Muyideen Kasali releases 2016 prophecies According to him, the APC after becoming too proud and drunk with success would eventually crumble at the federal level and the party would eventually split into four.
He said: “This year, 2016, would be a year of many political crises.

APC would split into four groups, and they would no longer have unity among them. They would be over bloated; too much success would destroy the party.”

On Nigeria’s president and vice president: The blind prophet said Presiddnt Muhammadu Buhari has good plans for Nigerians but would only achieve one and half unless Nigerians pray for him.
He said: “Buhari called a meeting on repairing all the refineries, and Nigerians were jubilating but nothing happened in that sector till the year ended.
“Pray for Nigeria’s Vice-President so that the enemies would not triumph over him. So that he won’t get missing after leaving a meeting.

“This year 2016, those who arrest people, would be the ones to be arrested. The hunter would become the hunted, those said to be above the law, would collapse under the weight of the law.”

Speaking about Babatunde Fashola, the minister of power, works and housing, Kasali said he needed prayers so his good name would be destroyed by those around him.
“I saw many sealed containers, which they said contained equipment for electric power. But when the containers were opened, they only contained torchlight, and candles etc.

“Electric poles would fall and cause fire outbreaks that would gut houses. Without serious prayers, a lot of spoilers would destroy Fashola’s name. He must be careful with those he appoints as his advisers. They would buy one thing many times, but the one that works would be missing. If he is wise, he should ask for the spirit of wisdom from God; if he gets that, he would succeed, but for him not to regret being a minister and being labeled a super thief, he must watch the people around him. The sad thing is that he would not embezzle anything but those around him would do so. Operators in the kingdom of darkness are already working against the ministry which Fashola is heading,” he said.
According to him, in the year 2016, the rich would go hungry while the poor would have plenty and fixed deposit owners would weep most in the history of the nation.

Other prophets have also released their predictions for 2016 and some spell doom. Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, warned Nigerians that “things are likely to
get tougher before they get better, but things will get better before the end of this year”.

IPOB Raises Alarm over Deteriorating Health of Nnamdi Kanu

Worried by  the deteriorating health of its incarcerated leader and Director of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, in the cell of the Department of State Service, DSS, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has raised an alarm, accusing the  DSS of denying him medical treatment several times, claiming that attempts by his doctors to attend to him  have been  rebuffed by the DSS.

Addressing newsmen, yesterday, in Nnewi, IPOB  Media and Publicity Officer, Mr. Emma Powerful alleged that the Federal Government through the DSS has perfected plans to systematically kill Kanu in the DSS  cell by denying him   doctors’ attention and subjecting him to torture on daily basis.
“Information from a reliable DSS source revealed that the Federal Government is also
planning to transfer Mr. Kanu to a particular cell in the country where members of Boko Haram are detained, and it is their plan to kill him there,” he said
He said that IPOB had written the United Nations, the African Union, AU, United States of America, Russia, France, Israel, Britain and Amnesty International, including other relevant world bodies and organizations about the life threatening treatment being given to Kanu by the Federal Government  through the DSS operatives.

IPOB wondered when the Nigerian government stopped granting detainees and suspects medical attention  especially for somebody that had been granted bail by two courts of competent jurisdiction in the country but the government decided to continue incarcerating him.

IPOB  therefore warned the All Progressives Congress, APC, government in Nigeria and President Buhari to release Kanu without further delay and also allow him to see his doctors, warning that “if anything happens to him, Nigeria will never know peace.'
“President Buhari and DSS will have no defence if they  allow Mr. Kanu to die in the hands of DSS, more so when two competent courts of jurisdiction have granted him bail. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. A word is enough for the wise. Nobody is sure of his health condition now, and therefore, Kanu should be released and allowed to see his doctors.
The present administration’s continued detention of Kanu when the courts had granted him bail is a flagrant abuse of power and lawlessness on the part of President Buhari and the DSS, and Nigeria is gradually  reverting to dictatorship.
The President is behaving as if he is above the law. Why can’t he respect the law if he has regards  for  democratic government, or is this  the change he is talking about, going from lawfulness to lawlessness?” he asked.

He covered my mouth and removed his thing | 5 year old boy narrates how man dragged him into bush and raped him

A five-year-old boy, who was allegedly raped by a 25-year-old man, Ganiu Amusa, in the Alakuko area of Lagos State, says the suspect dragged him into a bush before raping him.
The matter was said to have been reported to the police when Thompson began to complain about pains in his anus to his mother, identified only as Adenike, who thereafter raised the alarm.
The boy, Thompson (pseudonym), told PUNCH Metro on Thursday that Amusa also warned him not to disclose the incident to his mother when he got home. Thompson, who was still taking drugs, told the publication, that he did not know the suspect before the incident.

Thompson, a Nursery 2 pupil, said he was returning with his sister from his mother’s shop when the suspect accosted him.
He said,
“My sister and I were coming home from my mummy’s shop. My sister was riding a bicycle. She left me on the road. Later, I saw uncle Gani running after me. I had not met him before that day.
“The man said I should come. I did not answer him. He started to run after me. He then dragged me to a bush behind a house. He removed my shorts and put saliva in my anus. Then he removed his thing and put it into my anus. He covered my mouth with a cloth.
“There was no one in that bush. My sister was looking for me. My bum-bum was paining me. He warned me not to tell my mummy anything when I got home.”
A neighbour, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the suspect took advantage of the fact that the boy’s elder sister had wandered off to him to find his way.
She added that the bush where the suspect allegedly took the boy was a lonely area.
She said,
 “It was at about 2pm on December 17, 2015. The boy and his sister were returning from their mother’s shop in the Tollgate area. When they got to Hanson Street, the sister rode a bicycle and left the boy to find his way.
“When the boy came back home that afternoon, he was crying. We were anxious. Then we removed his clothes, and when we checked his anus, it was red. We first brought shea butter and applied it to the place.
“The bush is behind a storey-building. It is a lonely area. The boy was quickly rushed to a specialist hospital. He was given some antibiotic drugs, while tests were conducted on him. The suspect’s family members have been coming to beg the mother. They did not know what came over their son.”
Thomspon’s mother, Adenike, told our correspondent that the boy had almost completed treatment in the hospital, and he was getting better.
She said,
“He has been taking his drugs. He is getting better.”
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, on Wednesday said the suspect would be charged to court as soon as investigation was concluded on the matter.
“It is a case of sodomy. One Ganiu Amusa was arrested for allegedly raping a male infant of five years old through the anus. The case is still under investigation,” he added.

American Church Sets Up Secondary School Exclusively For Homosexuals And Transgenders

An American church, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta church will in September open a private school in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States.

The school is aimed at attracting lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender youths and teachers. According to a report by the Associated Press, the institution is being established in Atlanta for students who feel bullied or not accepted in traditional schools.

The school, Pride School Atlanta is also open to any student who believes they’re not getting the support they need for “being different,” says Pride School founder Christian Zsilavetz.

Pride School will initially operate out of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta Church and is expected to open by September 2016.

Tuition will be around $13,000, though Zsilavetz says financial assistance is available for students who need it.

Zsilavetz, a teacher and administrator with 25 years of experience who is also transgender, told the AJC that students would "have full permission to be themselves – as well as educators. Where there's no wondering, 'Is this teacher going to be a person for me to be myself with?""
