Pictured! Police Arrest 70-Year-Old Man For ‘Repeatedly Raping’ 7-Year-Old Girl


The Police in Ebonyi State have arrested a man, aged 70 in Akpoha, Afikpo North local government area of Ebonyi state for allegedly hypnotising and repeatedly raping a seven-year-old orphan.

The suspect, Simon Alobu, popularly known as Papa Eke was handed over to the police by the Family Law Centre, where the case was first reported by the victim’s relatives.

It was also learnt that the victim moved to her aunt’s home shortly after the death of her parents.

The suspect, who lives in the same compound with the girl and her aunt was reported to the centre by
the victim’s aunt who also alleged that the man had raped her when she was a little girl.

The alleged victim, who narrated her ordeal to journalists in Abakaliki , said the man raped her recently after she prepared food for him.

“The man said I should come and prepare food for him. After preparing the food, my brother who lives with me said he was not eating and left immediately.

“When my brother left and I was still eating, the man locked the door and carried me to his bed and raped me,” she said.

The suspect, it was also learnt, first raped the little girl in 2014 and since then has reportedly repeatedly raped her.

Her aunt, Martha Enya, said she started ‘suspecting’ after the young victim complained of severe pains in her private part.

But all efforts to make Favour name the culprit were not successful until recently when she revealed what happened.

According to the woman, she took the girl to Afikpo where the rape was confirmed but efforts to make her reveal the identity of the rapist failed as he (suspect) continued the act until this year.

“Favour confessed by herself and we went to the man and he agreed that he is the one raping Favour and that he has raped her five times”, she said.

She alleged that the suspect also mutilated Favour’s buttocks with a razor blade where he presumably applied some charms to prevent the girl from revealing his identity.

The suspect when quizzed confessed that he had carnal knowledge of the girl but added that he committed the act under the influence of alcohol.

The police spokesperson in the state, Loveth Odah, said the suspect is in police custody and will soon be arraigned in court.

No Local Govt Under Boko Haram Control - Army


All local government councils in North-eastern Nigeria have been liberated from the stronghold of the Boko Haram sect, the Nigerian Army has said.

The Army said this in a press statement signed by the Deputy Director, Public Relations of Operation Lafiya Dole, Onyema Nwachukwu, in response to a claim by top northern politician, Buba Galadima.

In an interview published in the Guardian newspaper of September 21, Mr. Galadima had said that there are 27 local governments in Borno State but not all are functioning because of the activities of
Boko Haram.

”At least seven of them (local councils) are still under the control of Boko Haram”, he said.
Reacting, however, the army refuted the statement saying it was an attempt to propagate falsehood and misinform the public on the true security situation in the North-east.

Listing its major operations in the region, the army noted that the perspective of Mr Galadima is that ”of one who is evidently detached from the realities of the counter-terrorism cum counter-insurgency operations in the North-east.”

Giving updates, the army said that Operation Lafiya Dole has resolved to carry out precursor operations that will lead to finally putting an end to the insurgency in the North-east.

It noted Boko Haram has been incapacitated by the army and remaining members of the sect are on their heels making it impossible for them to lay hold on any council.

Trump Bashes NFL National Anthem Protesters


Donald Trump says any NFL player who takes a knee during the National Anthem should be fired and referred to them as son's of bitches.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'get that son of a bitch off the field now. Out. Out. He's fired!'"

Trump made the comments at a rally in Alabama and though he never mentioned Colin Kaepernick by name it's clear he was referring to the unemployed QB, TMZ claims.

"The only thing you could do better is if you see it, even if it's just one player, leave the stadium. I
guarantee things will stop. Things will stop. Just pick up and leave. Pick up and leave. Not the same game anymore." Guessing there are several NFL players already talking about how to respond -- Sunday (today) should be interesting. Lol.

Kate Henshaw Talks Dancing, Exercising As Her Source Of Happiness


Nollywood sweetheart, Kate Henshaw has spoken on how she has managed to remain young despite her age, crediting it to Dance and Exercises. She says they are the two things she loves doing especially dancing as it makes her always happy. And a happy person is a younger person... Hear her;

“Music is the food of love and it is for the soul. If they are playing good music anywhere and you refuse to dance, then you are evil. I mean when everyone around you is on their feet, sweating it out on the dance floor and you remain on your seat, are you the devil? Music is from the heart and since I
choose to be happy, anywhere they play good music, I start to dance. That is the secret of my happiness and that is what makes me look young. I am happy all the time.”

Also known to be a fitness enthusiast, Kate revealed that ever since she discovered the benefits of exercising about seven years ago, she has not visited a hospital in five years.

“I began to really do exercises about seven years ago and the benefits are just numerous. I can see the changes in my body and my health is great. I have not been to the hospital in five years. Before I began to exercise, I used to have malaria, fever or typhoid almost every month but I have not been to the hospital for anything and I know it is because of the exercise and the fact that I decided to choose a healthy lifestyle. The more you exercise your body, the stronger you get. I keep pushing my limits at the gym because that is what I am supposed to do. Athletes and people who cherish their health never stop training, they keep going,” said the actress.

Ex-Employee Suing Facebook, Claims They Mocked Him Being Old


Facebook created a workplace where employees openly mocked a guy for being as ancient as - wait for it - 50 years old ... at least according to the ex-worker who's suing.

Gary Glouner says he worked under the Facebook umbrella for 2 years, and during that time was the butt of many ageist jokes. According to the docs,  the age cracks included:

- "Old people shouldn't be working at Facebook; they just don't relate"
- "Old people are just creepy"

- "Old people don't belong at Facebook"

Glouner says Mark Zuckerberg himself made public comments in 2007 where he said, "Young people are just smarter." He adds ... the ageism was institutional because during an HR presentation they displayed a chart highlighting the low energy of employees in their 50s.


Worst of all, he says his co-workers in their 20s and 30s always got cake and group celebrations, while he got bupkis. Glouner also claims his boss told him they didn't want to embarrass him by highlighting his advanced age.

We Shouldn't Experience Another Civil War - Ohanaeze Ndigbo


The apex Igbo socio-cultural group in Nigeria, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, yesterday stressed that the country should not be allowed to undergo another civil war. This came as the body also reinstated that Ndigbo are not interested in secession but equity and fairness from leaders of the country.

This is even as Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State, yesterday, told sponsors of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to have a rethink.

Speaking when he led leaders of Ohanaeze on a courtesy visit to Governor Aminu Waziri at the Government House, yesterday, President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief John Nwodo, said
although Nigeria was in trying times, the cohesion that existed over the years was worthy of being maintained.

“Yes, our country is going through a trying period but we should not under any circumstances experience another civil war. We should not allow personal emotions to undermine our national unity,” he said.

Mr. Nwodo who said the visit was at the instance of the South-East governors, assured of their cooperation for peaceful coexistence among the ethnic nationalities in the country. He commended the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Abubakar Sa’ad, for portraying himself as a father in the ongoing ethnic tensions by stating that "whoever wants to attack the Igbo, should attack him first."

“In the same vein, I came with the assurances of South-East governors that any Igbo who wants to kill a northerner, should first kill them.”

Responding, Governor Tambuwal observed that those looking for trouble lacked other ways of channeling their grievances.

“The recent quagmire is an act of people that do not understand any other way of channeling their grievances other than the way they have chosen."

“I assure you that we are at peace with each other and we shall continue to be because you cannot worship God or do business without peace,” he said.

looking at him like, man, this is a joke, with all — I can't even say with all due respect — with all disrespect."

The “4:44” rapper went on to say that Trump is not a “sophisticated man” — particularly pointing out the ideas that everyone is free.

IPOB Gets Fund In Paris From Holland, Hungary, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Turkey


Following intelligence reports, the Federal Government has located a slush account in Paris to which some Nigerians have made huge deposits in support of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

It has also uncovered how some IPOB members have invaded Nigerian embassies in Hong Kong and Spain and created some scenes in the last 72 hours.

The development, security sources said, was an indication of the desperation of IPOB and the justification for the proscription of the organisation.
But the French Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Denys Gauer on Friday met with the Minister of
Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

Although the outcome of the meeting between the two leaders was kept under wraps, Gauer was said to have reassured the Federal Government that France would not support any terrorist group.

It was learnt that the French government promised to take action as soon as the IPOB’s slush account was known to it.

A top security source, who spoke in confidence, said: “Intelligence gathering has led to the discovery of an account in Paris into which some Nigerians in the Diaspora remit funds to support IPOB.

“From the said account, funds were being drawn for the activities of IPOB at home and abroad. The relevant security agencies did a thorough job and provided incontrovertible evidence on the basis of which the government proscribed the terrorist organisation.

“These Nigerians in the Diaspora are using France as a clearing house.
“Investigations also confirmed inflows into the account from Holland, Hungary, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Turkey, Singapore and other parts of Europe.

“In fact, a football tournament was recently organised in Senegal to raise funds for IPOB.
“As a matter of fact, the account is being used to get money from a lot of people in the Diaspora.

“What many Nigerians did not know is that the Minister of Information and Culture was talking on the basis of credible intelligence report.”

Responding to a question, the source added: “With cooperation by the international community, especially relevant countries, we will soon get the list of all the people remitting funds into the account in Paris.”

But the government was also concerned that IPOB members were becoming desperate after the clampdown on the terrorist group.

The source said: “IPOB members are becoming desperate in the last 72 hours. About two days ago, some members of the terrorist group breezed into our Embassy in Hong Kong under the pretence of renewing their passports but ended up staging a protest.

“The IPOB members also demonstrated at our embassy in Spain a few days ago.”
At press time, the details of the session between the French Ambassador and the Minister of Information and Culture were yet to be formally released.
But a source said: “The Ambassador actually told the minister that France would never condone the activities of any terrorist group, including IPOB.

“He recalled that France has always been at the receiving end of terrorists and so cannot under any circumstances back IPOB.

“He restated the determination of the French government to support any policy or initiative which will strengthen Nigeria’s unity.

“He actually made it known that his government will not back secessionist agitation in this country.”
On the account in Paris, the Ambassador was said to have told the minister that France was “not aware of the account, but Nigeria should make a formal report.”
The source said the minister also reiterated that he “never said that France was supporting IPOB, because there is a robust relationship between France and Nigeria.

“We can never accuse France of collaborating with terrorists, because it has been assisting us in tackling Boko Haram insurgency.

“France played a major role in setting up and managing the operation of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF).

Nnamdi Kanu Challenges Court Order Declaring IPOB Terrorist Organisation


The leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has challenged the court order proscribing his group and declaring it a terrorist group.

In a statement on Friday, Mr. Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, said the motion challenging Wednesday’s court order was filed on Friday.

According to the motion, dated September 21, Mr. Ejiofor argued that IPOB is a non-violent organisation; therefore the decision of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court to issue an order,
based on a motion made ex-parte, was illegal.

A motion ex-parte is a motion heard by the court without the presence of the other party/ parties.

The lawyer added that his client, whose whereabouts has been unknown since the violent crisis in Abia started two weeks ago, was not allowed fair hearing and that the court lacked the jurisdiction to grant such an order.

The Nigerian government on Wednesday obtained an order of court, affirming the declaration of IPOB as a terror group.

The group, which seeks an independent country of Biafra, has been accused of killing and intimidating civilians and security operatives.

FG To Reveal Account Details Of IPOB Sponsors; To Be Submitted To French Government


The Federal Government will be giving the French Government account details of the sponsors of terrorist group, Indigenous People of Biafra, Saturday PUNCH has learnt.

The Nigerian Government had through the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said that France was the headquarters of IPOB’s funding. But the European country on Thursday said it had no knowledge of IPOB’s presence in France.

But a very senior government official said the Federal Government had reached out to France, explaining that it did not accuse the country of being the sponsors of Biafra but that a large transfer of
funds were made regularly from France to IPOB in Nigeria.

It was learnt that the Federal Government had asked the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit and the Central Bank of Nigeria to compile the needed information on the sponsors and it hand it over to the French government.

The government will also write the Special Control Unit against Money Laundering, which is tasked with the mandate of supervising, monitoring and regulating Designated Non-Financial Institutions as regards compliance to Nigeria’s Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism.

The source, who pleaded anonymity because he was not authorised by the government to speak on the issue yet, said, “The French Government has reached out to us over the IPOB matter. It said we should give it account details and any other evidence showing that France was where the majority of the money was coming from.

“So, the government has accepted that challenge and we will be instructing the NFIU, SCUML and the CBN to hand over all the details of IPOB’s funding to us in one comprehensive report which will be submitted to the French Government.

“Since IPOB has been declared a terrorist organisation by a court in Nigeria, the French Government, which claims to be against Nigeria’s break-up, is expected to give us maximum cooperation.”

According to the government other countries from which IPOB also received huge cash inflows include: Turkey, Senegal, Malaysia, Hong Kong, United Kingdom and the United States.

The operative said reports would also be given to the aforementioned countries.

He added, “Before his arrest, Nnamdi Kanu had appealed to people of Igbo extraction in some of these countries to provide him with funds which would be used in buying weapons and bringing down the Nigerian Government.

“In a video, which has even gone viral on Youtube, Kanu said he needed guns. This is not hearsay.

“We will also be writing these countries informing them of the need to ensure that IPOB’s source of funding is traced and blocked.”

In a related development, the Federal Government has said that sponsors of the proscribed IPOB are now afraid.

It also said it had evidence that those sponsoring the organisation were those undergoing investigation or those that were politically disgruntled, but that it would not give out their names.

Mohammed stated this in an interview with our correspondent in Abuja on Friday.

He said that discerning Nigerians would know those behind the funding of the organisation.

The minister had earlier accused corrupt and disgruntled politicians of being behind IPOB, adding that the plan of the sponsors was to return to power in 2019 with the intention to continue with the looting of the treasury.

However, the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, replied the minister and asked the government to name the sponsors.

But Mohammed said the claim by the PDP was not true, adding that only the guilty were afraid.

He said, “Only the guilty are afraid. We have said it. You don’t need rocket science to know that those who are facing investigations are those who don’t want the government to succeed.

“They hold on to any platform to derail the Federal Government. It is not when we release their names. We know those who are sponsoring IPOB belong to these two groups. These are those who are politically disgruntled and those who are treasury looters. So, it is not when we start mentioning names.”

The minister added that the government was already handling the issues surrounding the allegations he made against France and the United Kingdom.

While he alleged that France was the headquarters of IPOB and where its sponsors were based, he said that Radio Biafra was located in the United Kingdom.

Both countries have however denied the minister’s claim. Mohammed said that Nigeria was already handling the issue at the diplomatic level.

“It is a diplomatic matter and we are handling it at that level,” he said

Cemetery Rejects Corpse Of Civil Servant Killed By Lightning In Ilorin


The management of llorin Muslim Cemetery, on Friday, rejected the corpse of a 47-year-old civil servant, Mr. Salami Adekunle, who was killed by lightening in Oro, lrepodun Local Government Area of Kwara. Dr. Abubakar Aliagan, the Coordinator in charge of the cemetery, disclosed this in an interview with newsmen in llorin.

According to him, the cemetery management unanimously rejected the burial of the deceased following an instruction that the corpse should not undergo the normal Islamic prayers and bath. Aliagan said while the deceased was described as a practising Muslim during his life time, Muslims
in his vicinity refused to accept that his death was an act of God.

He said the performance of traditional rituals on Adekunle’s corpse after his death was unacceptable to the management of the cemetery, adding that the burial of the deceased in the Muslim Cemetery must also be in line with Islamic tenets.

“If the late Salami will sleep in our Muslim cemetery, we have to do it in line with lslamic rites,’’ Aliagan said. Adekunle was on Thursday struck to death by lightening during a downpour. The deceased who hails from lnisa in Osun was, until his death, a staff of the Registry Department at the Kwara College of Education, Oro. The Public Relations Officer of the institution, Mr. Adesola Adewoye, said the family of the deceased would meet and decide on the next line of action to take on the burial arrangement.

North Korea issues hydrogen bomb threat


North Korea could test a powerful nuclear weapon over the Pacific Ocean in response to US President Donald Trump's threats of military action, the country's foreign minister has warned.
Ri Yong Ho spoke to reporters in New York shortly after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made an unprecedented televised statement, accusing Trump of being "mentally deranged."
The forceful rhetoric from Pyongyang came after Trump threatened to"totally destroy" North Korea in a speech to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday. Trump tweeted Friday that Kim was "obviously a madman" who would be "tested like never before."
In a rare direct statement delivered straight to camera, Kim said that Trump would "pay dearly" for the threats, and that North Korea "will consider with seriousness exercising of a corresponding, highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history."
"I am now thinking hard about what response he could have expected when he allowed such eccentric words to trip off his tongue," Kim said. "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire."
 
Kim said Trump's comments were reflective of "mentally deranged behavior."
Hours later, Kim's foreign minister told reporters in New York that Pyongyang could launch a nuclear missile test in response. "This could probably mean the strongest hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific Ocean. Regarding which measures to take, I don't really know since it is what Kim Jong Un does," said Ri.
 
 
Japan's defense minister Itsunori Onodera said the country must ready itself for the sudden escalation in tensions and be prepared for a missile launch.
"We cannot deny the possibility it may fly over our country," Onodera said Thursday. Japan has been subject to two North Korean missile test flyovers in recent weeks. 
 
In response, Trump said on Twitter: "Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind killing or starving his people, will be tested like never before!"

First-person first?

The phrase "highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history" could be considered an escalation in the choice of language used, said Vipin Narang, a professor of political science at MIT and expert on deterrence and nuclear policy.
"This is clearly trying to coerce the US into playing ball," Narang told CNN.
In his first address to the United Nations as US President, Trump said that the US was ready to "totally destroy" North Korea if it was forced to defend its allies, a warning seen as unprecedented for a US president delivering an address to the world's leaders and top diplomats. 
 
Responding to the speech, Kim said Trump's comments amounted to an insult. "I'd like to advise Trump to exercise prudence in selecting words and to be considerate of whom he speaks to when making a speech in front of the world," Kim said.
A handful of North Korea analysts believe Kim's response -- the first time he has ever released a first-person statement -- could show how personally the young leader took Trump's speech.
"This is unprecedented, as far as we can tell," Narang said. "It's written by him, it's signed by him ... He was clearly offended by the speech, and what concerns me most is the response he says he is considering."
"The message is chilling," Narang said.
 
Asked to respond to Kim's statement, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told CNN on Thursday night, "Not at this time."
North Korea was scheduled to speak at the UN General Assembly Friday night, but dropped off of its planned roster spot. The country could still get a slot at another time. 
 

More sanctions

The White House, meanwhile, took the another step in its so-called "peaceful pressure" campaign to rein in Pyongyang's nuclear program, expanding sanctions on North Korea and those who do business with the country.
Though the majority of North Korea's imports come from China, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said "This action is directed at everyone" and the steps are "in no way specifically directed at China."
 
The executive order Trump inked just ahead of the lunch enhances Treasury Department authorities to target individuals who provide goods, services or technology to North Korea, Trump said. He said the order would also allow the US to identify new industries -- including textiles, fishing and manufacturing -- as potential targets for future actions.

'She Curses Me With Her Private Part' - Pastor


A pastor, Bernard Towoju, has said he cannot tolerate his wife’s ill nature and troubles alleging that his wife, Abosede, was in the habit of going naked to swear at him with her private part.

On Wednesday, he approached an Igando Customary Court, Lagos, seeking the dissolution of their marriage of 25 years.

“I cannot continue to make love with a woman who always swears for (at) me with her private part,” he said.

According to him, Abosede ”is stubborn, wayward and troublesome.” “She once came to my office to
fight me and tore my clothes in the presence of my colleagues. We fight on daily basis and hurt each other a lot.

“We always land in the police station after our fight, in fact, we are regular customers at the station”, he said.

The 53-year-old cleric also accused his wife of threatening his life.

“My wife always hits me with dangerous weapons whenever we are fighting. I had to run away from the house I built with my money 10 years ago to rent an apartment for safety.

“She chased me with cutlass, bottles and sticks; our neighbours can testify to that. I am afraid, I cannot sleep under the same roof with her with my two eyes closed”, he said.

He begged the court to dissolve the marriage, as he was no longer interested in the relationship.

In her defence, Abosede, however, accused her husband of calling her a witch.

“He said everywhere he went for a solution to his problems they always told him that I am behind his predicament.

“My hands are clean, I know nothing about his woes’’, said the wife.

“Bernard abandoned me and the children 10 years ago, I have been taking care of the children,” the 36-year-old fashion designer added.

The mother of four urged the court not to grant her husband’s request for the dissolution of the marriage, saying, “I still love him.”

The court’s president, Adegboyega Omilola, adjourned the case until October 31 for further hearing.

Man United Fans Told To Stop Chanting About The Size Of Romelu Lukaku's Manhood


Romelu Lukaku has told Manchester United fans to ‘respect each other’ after an anti-discrimination group complained about a lewd terrace chant.

Kick It Out described a song, which makes reference to the size of Lukaku’s manhood, as ‘offensive and discriminatory’ with racist undertones in a letter to United earlier this week.

The Football Association has asked United to keep them informed of how they are combating the issue.

Lukaku broke his silence on Thursday in a message from the club’s official Twitter account.


Great backing since I joined United,’ the striker said. ‘Fans have meant well with their songs but let’s move on together. #respecteachother.’

United have a zero tolerance towards racism and were seeking advice after the chant's content came to light.

A small section of fans gave the song - to the tune of 'Made of Stone' by The Stone Roses - a short airing during Wednesday’s victory over Burton Albion in the EFL Cup.

It had also been heard from one corner of Old Trafford in games against Basle and Everton.

The club posted on social media ahead of the Burton game that 'action will be taken against any offensive behaviour'.

Stewards were briefed on the matter before the match and prepared to act where necessary. No arrests were made or complaints lodged to Greater Manchester Police.

NAFDAC Workers Commence Indefinite Strike


The Medical and Health Workers Union chapter of National Agency for Food Drugs Administration and Control, NAFDAC, has commenced indefinite strike.

The Union said they are embarking on the industrial action to push for improved welfare package and for the management of the agency to implement an agreement reached on welfare package in 2013.

Addressing members on Friday, Vice President of the Union, Idu Isua, disclosed that both the management and the union signed an agreement to review its welfare package in 2013 but the terms
of agreement are yet to be complied with.

Isua said, “we resolved that funds be drawn from our Internally Generated Revenue to finance the upward reviewed package of staff but to our greatest surprise, nothing was done since then.

“When we came on board as union in 2013, we took a look at the allowances of staff and discovered it was low compared with other agencies that we enjoy same salary scale with.”

Isua said the union had complained to the Ministry of Health and NAFDAC management, “but up till today, nothing has been done.”

“The strike was not a fresh one because we took same action two years ago and last year and based on agreement reached, the strike was suspended.

“However, nothing was done on our salary review up till now,” Isua added.
