Benue Police Clears Air on Reported Killing of Wanted Criminal, Ghana


The Benue State government has cleared the air on the alleged killing of wanted criminal, Terwase Akwaza, otherwise known as Ghana.

The police command explained that it was one of his gang members that was killed and not the wanted criminal.

Speaking with DAILY POST, the Benue Police PRO, Moses Yamu assured that efforts were still on top gear to bring Ghana to his kneels.

He said, “We want to clear the air that it was not Ghana that was killed. It was one of his gang members identified as Danladu Awudu.

“The Operation Zenda Special Crack Squad of the Benue State Command were engaged in a gun duel with Gang members of the wanted criminal Terwase Akwaza AKA “Ghana” on 11/08/2017 at about 0300hrs.

“The gun battle ensued when the Crack Squad stormed a criminal hideout at a location on the border with Taraba State, following a reliable information that Terwase Akwaza aka Ghana and his gang members were holding a meeting.

“The bandits immediately opened fire on sighting the Police team and in the ensuing gun duel, one Danladi Awudu aka Jerry who was hosting the meeting was hit by a bullet while others escaped with bullet wounds as there were traces of blood stains all over the place.

“Awudu was, however, confirmed dead on reaching the hospital.

“The team recovered an Assault rifle No. 2051679 with one hundred and fifteen (115) rounds of live ammunition, ten (10) live cartridges, assorted charms, two (2) army camouflage shorts and other items.

“Search for the fleeing members and the Gang leader aka Ghana is ongoing,” Yamu added

South Africa Policemen Strangles Nigerian Man to Death


The Nigerian Union in South Africa Thursday said another Nigerian, Mr. Uchena Eloh, had been killed in the Western Cape Province of that country.

Kanayo Onwumelu, Chairman, Western Cape chapter of the union, on the telephone from Cape Town, said that Eloh was strangled to death by South African policemen.

Eloh hailed from Eziagu in Eziagu Local Government Area of Enugu State, reported the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
“We want to call the attention of the Nigerian government to the senseless killing of innocent Nigerians by the police in South Africa.

“At about 11.00 a.m. South African time on Wednesday, a Nigerian, Uchenna Emmanuel Eloh, popularly known as ‘Monkey’, was killed by a South African police officer.

“He was walking out of his house towards the bus station when a police van stopped to search him, suspecting that he might be in possession of an illegal substance.

“Three policemen accosted Eloh, one of them, by the name Williams, held him by the neck suspecting that he swallowed a substance, while another police officer held him by the legs,” he said.

The union official alleged that the policemen dragged Eloh on the ground until he started foaming and suffocated to death on the spot.

“This is not the first time such a senseless killing of an innocent Nigerian has been carried out by South African police officers.

“We have reported similar killings to the South African government and Nigeria High Commission in South Africa and nothing was done to bring the culprits to book.
“We want the Nigerian government to intervene to stop this brutality against innocent Nigerians and stop killing Nigerians out of hatred, racism or xenophobia,” he said.
Ikechukwu Anyene, President of the Nigerian Union in South Africa, who also confirmed the incident, called for an end to the incessant killings of Nigerians in South Africa.

“Our government needs to do something urgently to make it clear that Nigerian lives matter.
“We have made suggestions on what can be done, but it is now clear to us that the endless talks cannot yield any positive result,” Anyene said.

He said that the union had engaged a lawyer to take up the case against South African Police Service.
“But this kind of legal service should form part of consular services to provide legal services to victimized Nigerians,” Anyene said.

The union said the police have opened an inquest into the case.

EFCC Recovers N277 Million, Arrests 195 Suspects in Ibadan Zone


The Ibadan zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, says it recovered N277.9 million and arrested 195 suspects between March and August this year.

The Deputy Zonal Head, Kazeem Oseni, made this known on Monday at a press conference. He said 431 cases were reported at the office within the same period.

“The Ibadan Zone has taken a leap off her previous achievements with a recovery of N277, 931, 341. 31 (Two hundred and seventy-seven million, nine hundred and thirty-one thousand, three hundred and fifty-one naira and thirty-one Kobo) against what we had last year,” Mr. Oseni said.

He further explained that 50 of the cases are going on in court.

“Investigations on the other cases are ongoing and will be charged to court as soon as they are concluded, “he stated.

He said the fight against graft is not a task the Commission can surmount single-handedly and called on the media to collaborate more to make the fight a success.

“It is imperative for us to come together like this to bridge any information gap about the progress of the anti-graft war,” he stressed while expressing appreciation to the journalists for their cooperation with the office.

‎”Let me use this opportunity to enjoin you all and sundry to buy into the fight against graft. We need the support of all stakeholders. The media, no doubt, needs to prop up this message by informing the public adequately about our activities and urge them to report cases of corruption to the EFCC promptly”, Oseni stated.

“We will not rest on our oars as we must win the fight together,” he added.

Ozubulu: Three High-Profile Suspects in Police Net


The Police now have in their custody three suspects linked to last Sunday’s massacre at St Philip’s Catholic Church, Ozubulu, Anambra State.

The suspects are said to be very wealthy but with no identifiable means of income.

Police spokesman, Moshood Jimoh, who confirmed the arrest however declined to reveal the identities of the suspects.

He spoke as the Catholic Bishop of Nnewi Diocese, Dr. Hilary Okeke said the Church has forgiven the brains behind the attack.

Okeke, receiving  a presidential  delegation during a sympathy visit in Nnewi, however said the forgiveness does not in any way preclude government from fishing out the perpetrators and bringing them to book.

Jimoh also said the Police will not dignify any suspect with the term high profile, pointing out that anyone who violates the law of the land is liable to be arrested and charged accordingly.

“The arrested suspects have no identifiable means of income and they completely have no explanation as to their means of livelihood,” Jimoh told The Nation in Abuja.

“No doubt, when people do things relating to the offence of drug-running, they do not have a recognized means of livelihood.

“I would not want to say that they are ‘big men’ because anybody can claim to be big but once you commit crime, even if people in the society say you are a big man, it is the duty of the police to hold you and take you before the law. The process is not a respecter of anyone’s social standing.

“They are leading us further in our investigation into the crime. What happened was a vicious and condemnable act in a place of worship. It is criminal and reprehensible to go and attack worshippers and kill people, no matter what issue prompted any feud.

“All the perpetrators of such crimes would definitely be arrested and prosecuted. I want to assure Nigerians that whether they are in Nigeria or any other country, the Nigeria police and Interpol will get them anywhere they are.

“We will get anybody who had a hand in committing this offence; anyone who participated in any way and anyone who gives custody to the perpetrator or hides him has flouted the law. Such a person would be culpable.

“The process of the law would be firmly followed without compromise towards ensuring that we bring the criminals behind the Ozubulu incident to justice.”

And welcoming the Presidential team led by Labour and Employment Minister Chris Ngige in Nnewi yesterday, Bishop Okeke hailed the federal government for responding promptly to the Ozubulu incident.

He said that the federal government had by the gesture, shown that it had the interest of all sections of the country at heart in spite of differences in religion, creed and political affiliations.

He said that the incident claimed the lives of 13 people, while 26 others sustained various degrees of injury.

The bishop said that the church had set up a trust fund to assist the victims, adding that government was free to add its own contribution.

Ngige, a former governor of the state said that the delegation was in the state to condole with the people and government of Anambra.

He said that President Muhammadu Buhari was much concerned about the incident and that the government would bring the perpetrators to book.

He pledged that government “will do everything to track the perpetrators,” and pledged its commitment to the safety of Nigerians every where they reside.

Others on the entourage were Health Minister Prof Isaac Adewole; Foreign Affairs Minister Geoffrey Onyeama; Minister of State for Education Anthony Anwukah; and Minister of State for Environment Ibrahim Jibrin.

The delegation visited St Philips Catholic, the scene of the incident, in Ozubulu.

They were scheduled to deliver to Governor Willier Obiano a letter of condolence from Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.

Osinbajo, in the letter, commiserated with the families and friends of the victims, as well as the Ozubulu community for the loss and prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured.

He condemned in very strong terms the atrocious and dastardly act which he said has brought sorrow to many innocent families.

“Such barbaric act constitutes an affront to our common humanity and it challenges, but will not overwhelm our collective resolve to rid our communities of all forms of violent crimes and criminality,” he said.

Osinbajo said President Buhari’s administration remains committed to deploying all available resources towards ensuring adequate security of lives and property in Anambra State and across the entire country.

He also informed that he had instructed law enforcement agencies to bring perpetrators of the heinous crime to justice without any delay.

Unknown gunmen had on Aug. 6 invaded the church during morning Mass and opened fire on worshippers.

Medical Trip: Pro-Buhari Groups Plan Mega Walk to The Villa Tomorrow


Some pro-Buhari groups under the aegis of the Conference of Patriotic Nigerians (CPN), yesterday faulted those protesting against the continued stay of President Muhammadu Buhari in London for medical treatment.

They dismissed such critics as cheap political merchants.

They also unfolded plans to stage mega walk to the Presidential Villa tomorrow.

The groups made its position known in a statement by the Secretary-General of the coalition, the Conference of Patriotic Nigerians (CPN), Ambassador I. A. Waiya.

The groups said its Solidarity Walk is “a sequel to the recent and unfortunate unfolding political happenings in Nigeria, with the central issue of the news peddled on the medical vacation of President Muhammadu Buhari.”

They said those condemning the medical trip were engaging in “an  act  which is maliciously and mischievously being promoted  by some unpatriotic and unguided people, who do not even appreciate the collective responsibility of preserving the integrity of the Nigerian state as a project, and sadly patronized by the Nigerian media.

Their words: “It is therefore against this backdrop that, a good number of progressive and development organizations across the 36 states of the federation, have resolved to through a collective engagement of all other genuine political activists, true democrats and concerned Nigerians, to organize a Solidarity Walk in Abuja.

“This will serve as a mark of appreciation for the significant and unimaginable positive impacts the Buhari led government has made.

“It is meant to dissociate the right thinking and true Nigerians from unfounded and unjustified agitation for the unconditional and quick return of the President Buhari from his legitimate medical vacation in London

“The event is planned to hold on Monday (tomorrow) and is expected to be attended by over one hundred thousand Nigerians from and across the states of the federation and Abuja.”

The groups said members would walk to the Presidential Villa to present a position paper to Acting President Yemi Osinbanjo.

Usain Bolt Bows Out in Dramatic Fashion as Team Britain Secure 400 by 400 Relay Gold


Life after Usain Bolt has begun.

The Jamaican great brought the curtain down on his glittering career by limping across the line injured in the 4x100 metres relay at the world athletics championships in London.

For a man who has won 19 global titles, who has transformed athletics, it was a sorry way to go. But dramatic too. And Bolt does drama in big time.

Nine years after exploding onto the world stage with two jaw-dropping world records at the Beijing Olympics, five after he declared himself a "living legend" by retaining his titles in London, and one after lighting up yet another Games in Rio, Bolt waved goodbye to the crowd as he hobbled down the home straight at the London Stadium.

The greatest career athletics has even seen - over.

But the 30-year-old was so much more than a medal machine.

The saviour of athletics: it is a tag Bolt has lived with through the dark days of doping scandals during which it sometimes seemed that only he could keep the sport from going under.

The task of how to fill the void his departure will leave is a gargantuan one.

Bolt appeared destined for greatness since becoming, aged 15 in 2002, the youngest world junior champion by taking 200m gold on home soil in Kingston.

If that set the teenager from Trelawny on the road to stardom, his performances at the Beijing Olympics six years later sealed it.

Fuelled by a diet of chicken nuggets, he set a 100m world record of 9.69, despite celebrating well before crossing the line, spreading his arms and slapping his chest.

International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge branded his showboating disrespectful. He could not have been more out of touch.

Here was a man to take athletics into a new stratosphere.

The following year he set world records - 9.58secs over 100m, 19.19s over 200m - which look set to stand for years.

They were mind-boggling marks from a sprinter who looked different too.

At 6ft 5in he towered over his rivals and, once he had recovered from his always troublesome start, his speed was awesome.

But it has always been about so much more than the race with Bolt. It is the whole show. He has made athletics fun like no one else.

Be it his dancing, his joking, his celebrating, his 'Lightning Bolt' pose - no one does it better.

Energy, excitement, humour, charisma - it is all there, even in the briefest of moments.

Sprinters of the past used to prowl around the start line, sporting their best menacing looks, before a race. Bolt has made them all look just a little bit foolish.

Bolt has, somehow, managed to tread the line between arrogance and humility exactly right.

He knows he is special and he is not afraid to say it.

But he is also aware of his responsibility to the sport, particularly in an age of repeated doping scandals, and when his biggest rival, Justin Gatlin, is a two-time drug cheat.

Bolt has been directly affected by doping. He is no longer a nine-time Olympic champion, having lost his 4x100m gold from the 2008 Olympics when teammate Nesta Carter failed a retrospective drugs test.

That fact will not affect his legacy, though.

Nor will the fact he had to settle for 100m bronze, behind champion Gatlin and young American Christian Coleman, in the 100m in London, the final individual race of his career.

His hero status is secure.

Bolt has hailed South Africa's 400m world record holder Wayde van Niekerk as the man to inherit his mantle.

Yet the pair are contrasting characters and expecting Van Niekerk to fill the void left by the larger-than-life, one-of-a-kind Jamaican is hugely unfair.

If athletics chiefs want a new Bolt, they could be in for a long wait.

Soldiers Force Lady to Undress in Public for Wearing Camouflage [PHOTO]

A picture of the incident, which has been trending on the Internet, showed the victim being forced to pull down her trousers to her underwear.

A military man, who was supervising the unsavoury show, bent over the victim, who looked terrified and appeared to be begging another officer whose face was not revealed by the shot.

Although the identity of the supervising military officer was also shielded by his cap, the face of the lady at the centre of the drama was visible.

However, a large number of people, who reacted to the photo on different social media platforms condemned the incident, saying the victim was dehumanised.

Godzilla’ is dead


Haruo Nakajima, the actor who played Japan’s iconic city-wrecking monster Godzilla in the original 1954 movie, has died, film studio Toho said Tuesday. He was 88.

Nakajima, who went on to appear as the iconic creature a dozen times, died of pneumonia on Monday, said a spokesman for the studio that produced the Godzilla films. Originally a stuntman, Nakajima at the age of 25 first took on the role of the giant monster awakened by a hydrogen bomb test to rise out of a roiling sea and swim to Japan where it crushes Tokyo.

Godzilla, a walking, radiation-breathing analogy for nuclear disaster resonated in Japan. Just nine years earlier the country had suffered the world’s first, and still only, atomic bomb attacks at the hands of the United States in the closing days of World War II.

Is Drake Trying To Come Closer To Wizkid?


Nigerian Afrobeat musician, Wizkid featured Drake in a song titled Come Closer. Wizkid also co-wrote “One Dance” with Drake and Kyla. Both songs were recorded at the same time but Come Closer was released the following year. Drake was absent in both videos of the song. This led to the speculation that the two artists had beef.

When the first video of ‘Come Closer’ dropped, Wizkid excused Drake’s absence when he tweeted: “Had a family emergency during ‘One Dance’ video shoot, and Drake was on tour when we did ‘Come Closer’. No bad blood, one love still”. The tweet was quickly deleted afterwards.

Wizkid also unfollowed Drake sometime in July, further worsening the speculation.

he second video of Come Closer was released and Drake was still absent in the video.

Drake has a history of not showing up in videos. He did it to Future with “Tony Montana,” Migos with “Versace,” and Fetty Wap with the “My Way” remix.

Drake’s eighth annual concert “Ovo Fest” recently started. He performed One Dance and Come Closer on stage in Toronto without Wizkid, and this infuriated Nigerian Wizkid fans.

Drake’s eighth annual concert “Ovo Fest” recently started. He performed One Dance and Come Closer on stage in Toronto without Wizkid, and this infuriated Nigerian Wizkid fans.

Was this Drake’s ploy to warm up the cold shoulder he had been giving Wizkid and show that their relationship is still very healthy, or are they still at loggerheads? What do you think?

Meanwhile, Wizkid was just chilling in Nicki Minaj’s studio. She shared a photo on Instagram of herself and Wizkid at her studio, where they were freestyling. It seems they are working on a song together and that thought is very exciting.

Usain Bolt Beaten by Justin Gatlin in 100m Final of World Championships 2017:


Justin Gatlin tore up Usain Bolt's farewell script as he stole world 100m gold with the run of his long and controversial career.

Bolt was left with only a bronze in his final individual 100m race as 21-year-old Christian Coleman made it a USA one-two.

The 35-year-old Gatlin, twice banned for doping, came through almost unnoticed in lane seven in 9.92 seconds, with Coleman's 9.94 holding off the greatest sprinter of all time.

Despite struggling for fitness and form in his valedictory season, Bolt had still been favourite to secure his 20th global gold.

It was supposed to be Gatlin's year in 2015, when the American went to the World Championships in Beijing on the back of a 28-race unbeaten run.

Bolt produced his great miracle to beat him that night in the Bird's Nest, but in the stadium where he won 100m Olympic gold in 2012, he could not provide the perfect ending to a perfect career.

Gatlin, Olympic 100m champion in 2004 and double world champion in 2005, had been booed every time he went to his blocks in these championships, his doping past making him the cartoon villain of a troubled sport.

After his second positive test, for testosterone in 2006, he avoided a life ban after cooperating with the authorities, accepting an eight-year suspension that was then reduced to four on appeal.

That left him free to return to the track, and he was to have his revenge in spectacular style, standing tall and putting a furious finger to his lips as his win stunned the capacity crowd to initial silence.

The stadium took a little revenge of their own, chanting, "Usain Bolt! Usain Bolt!" as the result began to sink in.

But this was a deserved victory in its execution if not its formation, a last hurrah for a man that many in the sport wished no longer had the chance to compete.

Bolt had another poor start, with his reaction time of 0.183 seconds the slowest in the field and 0.05 down on Gatlin.

With Coleman out fastest, he was always chasing, yet while we have grown used to seeing him first close down the more explosive starters and then pull away from them, this time the old magic was not there when he called upon it.

Bolt, 30, had never previously lost a World Championships 100m final he had started, with the one blemish on his record being his false start in Daegu in 2011.

But with the tyro Coleman holding him off, Gatlin powered through in the last 15 metres, maintaining his form through the line as the great champion was for once left powerless.

Britain's 21-year-old Reece Prescod was seventh in his first major final, but this will be a night remembered as much for the man who failed to win as the one who did.

World champion Justin Gatlin: "I tuned it out [the booing] through the rounds and stayed the course. I did what I had to do. The people who love me are here cheering for me and cheering at home.

"It is Bolt's last race. It is an amazing occasion. We are rivals on the track but in the warm-down area, we joke and have a good time. The first thing he did was congratulate me and say that I didn't deserve the boos. He is an inspiration."

Bronze medallist Usain Bolt: "I tightened up at the end and that is something you should never do. I didn't execute when it mattered.

"I am not fully comfortable in those blocks but you have to work with what you have. I can't complain about that.

"He [Gatlin] is a great competitor. You have to be at your best against him. I really appreciate competing against him and he is a good person."

BBC 5 live commentator Mike Costello: "This will be really difficult for the sport. Russia has been expelled indefinitely from the sport, but Gatlin has been banned twice and here he is winning gold in the most precious event in the sport.

"The crowd perhaps ought to be booing the IAAF rather than the athletes."

Four-time Olympic champion Michael Johnson: "I thought Bolt would be challenged by Coleman not by Gatlin. Bolt was under pressure. He has never really had a great start. He wasn't able to close the gap.

"He is grimacing and that is something we have not seen before. You will not find that look in all the archives of Usain Bolt."

20-Year-Old Model kidnapped and Then Advertised for Sale on The Dark Web


A British model who was ­kidnapped and drugged in Italy by criminals who tried to sell her for £230,000 says all she remembers is having a suitcase thrown over her head.

The 20-year-old mum of one had been lured to fake photoshoot in fashion capital Milan.

She was then injected with horse tranquilliser ketamine and photographed naked before being stuffed in the case and driven 120 miles to a farmhouse near Turin.

She was kept handcuffed to a wooden chest of drawers inside a rented house for a week.

Her kidnappers – called the Black Death Group – posted sick pictures of her on the Dark Web offering her for sale at £230,000.

But when the suspected gang leader, a Polish immigrant from Birmingham, discovered she was a mum he offered her to her modelling agency for the same price to stop the auction. Then in desperation Lukasz Pawel Herba, 30, asked Milan police for a £50,000 ransom.

He was later arrested as he took the woman to the British Consulate in Milan. Police said he had confessed to the kidnap near Milan’s central station on July 11.

The victim had to relive her nightmare on Saturday when she was taken back to the remote farmhouse in Borgial, an isolated village.

A family friend said: “They thought they would never see her alive again. She has been through hell. We just want to get her home”.

Italian sources told the Sunday Mirror she had just finished the photoshoot arranged by the agency that had been duped into sending her. Milan police investigator Serena Ferrari said: “The psychological pressure on the girl has been extreme. She was very afraid.”

The Sunday Mirror has uncovered her abductors’ Dark Web “advert” which features a disturbing image of her dressed in just a velvet body suit, looking dazed and lying on the floor with her left breast exposed.

Her captors had even placed a calling card on her stomach. The ad by Black Death Group – which refers to victims as “merchandise” – also features a series of horrifying promises about the women they traffic and a list of the woman’s personal details - including her dimensions.

The gang – which operates using the Bitcoin currency – boast they can “kidnap a specific target for your needs” and assure free “EU delivery” of victims.

But Italian media said boss Herba agreed to release the model because she has a child – and the gang’s “rules exclude kidnapping mothers”.

Herba, who lived alone in a three-story block of flats in Oldbury, appeared in court in Milan on Friday.

British police raided his Midlands flat on July 18. Officers reportedly found photos of the model and ­documents stating she was for sale on Herba’s phone and computer.

Herba – who also went by the name Daniel Zawada – reportedly posted the photos on the Black Death Group page. The “advert” outlined the model’s age, size and ethnicity, plus the details of where she was kidnapped – along with a “starting bid” of $300,000 (£230,000). The site includes a list of sickening terms and conditions for prospective buyers.

“Girl is only pure if profile says so,” the page says.

The page discusses “delivery” and “collection” arrangements, stating that “collection can be arranged” and promising global trafficking “for a price”. It is thought several requests were made to “buy” the model.

The model’s representatives received an email saying she was being “auctioned” on July 13. It contained a screenshot of the site’s “rules” alongside the haunting image of the sedated victim and details of how to “bid”.

Italian newspaper La Stampa claimed the model’s agent was contacted by the gang with a cash demand for her freedom. When the agent reported the matter to police the gang demanded a £50,000 ransom from the force for her safe return. It was alleged a “threat to kill her” was made if she passed on incriminating details. Her agency said she was due to fly home to the UK today. A spokesman said: “She has been with the police visiting the crime scene. I have been in touch with her family the whole time.

“Our prime concern now is to get her back safely.” A neighbour who lives opposite Herba said: “He used to drive a red Toyota and come racing up to the front door before driving off again about half an hour later.

“He was never in the flat for long. He seemed like a bit of a loner.”

West Midlands Police said: “An address in Oldbury, was raided by police at 1:12am on July 18. Derbyshire Police are leading the enquiries.”

Italian police said they are working with officials in Britain and Poland as they continue to investigate.
