An armed robbery gang attacked a hospital in Ogun State and stole from the patients and staff present.  

The armed robbers attacked the private hospital in Ibafo community, Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State and dispossessed patients of their belongings.

The Ogun State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident on Sunday said the armed robbers attacked the Riverside hospital at Omolaja Odunbaku in the community, subjecting patients and their relatives, as well as staff, to mental torture.  

He said a distress call was made to the Ibafo Division, and in quick response, the Divisional Police Officer, Abiodun Ayinde, led the anti-robbery squad to the scene. He said the gang on sighting the police took to their heels and escaped into a nearby bush. Oyeyemi said the police did not relent in efforts to apprehend the runaway suspects, who were later arrested where they were hiding in Shamawa town in Sagamu Local Government Area of the state.

He gave the identities of the suspects as Folarin Azeez (aka Hyper) 25, Temitope Bolariwa (aka Tincan), 24, and Kolade Ahmed (30), adding that items recovered from them are: 12 different types of Android and iPhones as well as wrist watches which the victims later identified as their stolen properties.  

The police spokesman said while investigation was ongoing, the command got information about earlier robbery escapades of the suspects somewhere in Osun State. Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) for investigation into their various robbery activities.

'I would rather die than join the Almajiri Peoples Congress (APC)- FFK























Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, has vehemently denied media reports he has joined the ruling APC.

In a post shared on his Facebook page, FFK says he would rather die than join the APC which he described as the Almajiri Peoples Congress.

Read his post below
The suggestion that I have joined the APC is not only false but it is also deeply insulting. Those that are peddling this fake news should bury their heads in shame.
With what we have witnessed over the last 5 years I would rather die than join a filthy, rat-infested sinking ship like the Almajiri Peoples Congress (APC).
Those that claim that I have joined them and that seek to link my good name to such a bloodthirsty, blood-lusting, accursed political association of Boko Haramists, Fulani herdsmen, genocidal maniacs, ethnic cleansers, mass murderers, ethnic supremacists, religious bigots, cow-lovers and corrupt treasury looters that have brought nothing but death, division, misery, poverty, incompetence, shame and destruction to our nation and our people will burn in hell forever!
I am committed to oppposing the APC and those that are in their ranks for the rest of my natural life and I will NEVER join them no matter what!
They are nothing but darkness whilst I stand for the light of God and truth: there can be NO fellowship between light and darkness.
(Femi Fani-Kayode)

Nigerians react after The Nation newspaper shares article tackling President Buhari











Nigerians react after The Nation newspaper shares article tackling President Buhari









Nigerians are reacting to an article posted by the Nation newspaper today Sunday December 15th which tackled President Buhari on the various political appointments.

The article written by one of the newpapers columnist, Femi Orebe, queried why most of the appointments were being handed to Nigerians from a particular region.

Nigerians react after The Nation newspaper shares article tackling President Buhari
The article and tweet on the newspaper's verified twitter handle has got people talking on Twitter especially since the newspaper, according to those on twitter, is allegedly owned by APC National leader,  Bola Tinubu. Many wonder why the article criticing President Buhari would be approved for publishing. 

The article is coming few days after Punch newspaper editorial took a stand to henceforth refer to President Buhari as ''Major General'' Buhari in protest of his style of governance.

 Read the article and reactions from  Nigerians below

I have said it over and over; we are not organised and we often act on impulse. The Fulani think 50 years ahead , but we think and romanticise with yesterday. We celebrate achievements of yesterday as if they are more important than the future. What is going on is an organised sub-regional plan to establish a Nigeria that fits into their own dream. When are we going to play the flute because every time we rush to the agenda they throw in our midst and we start panting? They dictate the pace of our Politics and power game. Unfortunately our networking is so weak that we hardly have any meeting point , complete  with all the strategic groups across Yorubaland” – Akaraoogun.
For those who may not know, I have more than established my bona fides as a supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari. When he was not even sure he would emerge the APC Presidential candidate in 2015, I  had written concerning  him, saying: ”Nigeria, in its current dire straits, needs Buhari more than he needs Nigeria”.
But that is not all, as can be confirmed by the following attestations.

“Buhari: The Politics of Age By Professor Tam David-West
October 14, 2014.
“Nigeria, in its current dire straits needs Buhari more than he needs Nigeria.” –
Femi Orebe
“The Nation On Sunday” September 28, 2014 Page 18″.
“Daddy Orebe is the most misunderstood person in recent times because his traducers don’t read their story lines well before reacting to his deeply informed analysis. He has spoken clearly on restructuring, herdsmen’s menace, insecurity and other issues. People misunderstand him because he will not join the league of naysayers”. – Dr Sikiru Eniola on Ekiti Panupo.
”Thank you so much sir. You have tried your best to give the leaders of today a long opportunity to prove themselves but the failure on their part has become so glaring” – Akaraoogun Adewale Adeoye on Ekiti Panupo.
”Sir. You said I am supporting a Malam Kwankwaso but you failed to mention that Nigerians always read your articles about how a Fulani man is the best leader Nigeria should have. Now the splendid performance is there for Nigerians to see”. –
Tokunbo Omolase on Facebook.
I wrote all  the above to show, in unmistakable terms, not just  where I stand on the Nigerian political spectrum, but to let President Buhari  himself know that in asking what are bound to be thoroughly uncomfortable, if not ‘nauseating’ questions, they are not coming from enemy territory. Rather, they are coming from the tortured  soul of a supporter of his, who has been at the receiving end of  almost  daily flagellation by those Nigerians who say I was one of those who sold them ‘a pig in a poke’ as well as  the most tribalistic, and insular, Nigerian president, ever.
Even though, I will not go as far as to describe the president in those lurid terms, I often, in fairness to the critics, personally wonder as to how the president still manages to sleep, that is, if he is able to sleep, when he takes a hard look at how the North has come to so completely dominate the Nigerian public space under his watch to the extent that one would be right to say Nigeria is under a northern stranglehold.
Worse, really, is the fact that this seeming internal colonialism shows no signs of remission as various stratagems are ongoing, an example being the case of the Federal Commission on Nomadic Education, which has failed miserably in its core function given the number of out-of-school children in that part of the country, but is now coyly trying to embed itself in the contentious grazing reserves matter which many have said is aimed at sexing up Nigeria’s demographics in favour of the Fulani.
Mr President, Sir, I belong to many Whatsapp groups apart from individuals with the result that I have up to 1000 entities I receive chats from.
Many from these sources are daily bombarding me, as one of your arch supporters, with questions I haven’t the capacity to answer.
To these I shall return.
Like Dr Junaid Mohammed, US-based Professor Farooq A. Kperogi has in fact gone to the extent of describing your government as ‘Government of Buhari’s Family, by His Family, and for His Family’. He writes further:  Before he was sworn in as President in May 2015, Muhammadu Buhari, without prompting from anybody, publicly told his immediate and extended family members to stand back from his incoming government. He even warned that any family member who used his name to peddle influence would face dire consequences”. ”I was so impressed by this declaration that in my May 16, 2015 column titled “6 Reasons Why Incoming Buhari Government Fills Me with Hope,” I isolated it as one of the six reasons I thought Buhari’s administration would “represent a qualitative departure from the legalised banditry that has passed for governance in Nigeria for so long.” Specifically, he continued: “Buhari’s symbolic but nonetheless significant gestures like telling family members to steer clear of his government and telling aides to obey traffic laws inspire me.”
I remember the president saying that and I was beside myself with joy. You could have ridden a horse in my belly. But all those soon  dramatically  changed that the First Lady had to cry out, protesting what she called a hijack of your government. I thought that was impossible.
Back then to my Whatsapp groups and friends where all that  the First Lady complained of, important as they are, pales into almost nothing as the questions these ones  raise, are so telling and Pan –
Nigerian; far beyond family.
If His Excellency would kindly overlook the impertinence, could you please get the Presidency – no, not you in person Mr President, to provide answers to the following posers from a younger friend of mine, an Ekiti like me and retired Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Nigeria – a Ph.D holder to boot – who has seen something of the world, but never ceases to taunt me with questions pertaining to ‘our’ administration.
The latest, which came via a Whatsapp chat, goes as follows:
“Oga (Ekiti salutation for elders), these are your latest achievements at the NEXT LEVEL. Any comment?
He didn’t have to repeat the ‘any comment’, as he always, unerringly, got a defence from me whenever he sends me these inquisitorial chats, which is almost daily.
This time around, Your Excellency, I am in a complete fix, and so do need help. Indeed, to taunt me maximally, he wrote that this one is only an observation.
Here they go:
“Finance, Customs, Immigration, FIRS, NPA, NNPC, AMCON, NDIC, Federal Mortgage Bank, are now firmly in the hands of northerners!
Executive, Legislature, the Judiciary, Police, DSS, Armed Forces, minus the CDS, Oil, Airports and Seaports, are all in the hands of northerners.
The rout is complete.
Chief of Army Staff tenure is over. He is still in office
Chief of Naval Staff tenure is over. He is still in office.
EFCC acting Chairman’s tenure is over. He is still in office.
But FIRS boss, Tunde Fowler’s tenure expired today and he is already replaced”.
As I indicated above, I know that the First Lady  had once observed that you do not know many of  those working in your government,  but that notwithstanding, I think it is necessary  I remind  your Excellency, that Nigeria presently has no less than 250 ethnic groups divided into  six geo – political zones . Under no circumstances should all these happen as they are totally unconscionable, and a matter of great discomfort for us your supporters in this part of the country. It is extremely nauseating that a part can so torridly dominate the rest when those others are no slaves.
No genuine supporter of yours can be happy, or roll out the drums, for this state of affairs as they are not only unthinkable, but ungodly. It is even worse, given Nigeria’s current realities of mass poverty, unremitting insecurity, all on top of a seeming northernisation policy, as if the other ethnic groups are non- Nigerians. Unfortunately, Nigerians are not hearing a word from non northern APC leaders as to what negative  consequences all these may have on the party come 2023, and one begins to wonder as to how they explain all these to their people. This failure on their part can serve as a mitigating factor for the President, but even then, it would be pointless and unhelpful,
Whatever the president can do to correct these incredible anomalies will be of great help to the party, will mollify the people, and most probably, secure a positive legacy for you.
Otherwise all your positive contributions to Nigeria, at these extremely difficult times, may come to naught, which I pray, God forbid.
RE: THE RULING ON EX-GOVERNORS’ PENSION LAW
“Long time. I don’t miss Nation on Sunday  because  of your column. God bless   SERAP people for the judge’s ruling on ex-governors’  bogus pension package. I believe that  all the  ex-governors must have met Mr Malami “ in chamber” before he wrote that law- student piece.  Mark it, he may not last Pres Buhari’s 4  years. Whatever a man sows he shall reap. By the way, is it not  Mr Malami who should have gone to court to challenge NASS N14m & N12m  monthly pay?  All he will ask is for the   court to declare whether NASS  pay is reasonable or not in the light of the level of  unemployment  in Nigeria today and workers’ minimum wage of only N30,000 a month.. A verdict of “unreasonable” is all Nigerians need to march on NASS.  May God bless our country..
Pa G.O Okoobo, FCA (91 year old dedicated reader of this column and one of Nigeria’s earliest Chattered Accountants. God bless, Sir).?

LAPD officer charged with fondling dead woman's breast, faces three years in jail










LAPD officer charged with fondling dead woman












The LAPD officer who was accused of fondling a dead woman's breasts has been officially charged.

David Rojas, 27, could be sent to prison for three years if found guilty of having sexual contact with human remains without authority, according to a statement by Los Angeles County district attorney.

The veteran cop was placed on leave after his bodycam footage reportedly showed him groping a corpse, the LA Times reported.

The incident occurred when the officer and his partner were called to investigate a report of a fatality at a residential unit in Los Angeles. After entering the premises and confirming the death, the partner left the room to retrieve something from the patrol car.  

The accused officer then turned off his bodycam, before switching it back on a short time later.  However the device has a two-minute buffer; it is constantly recording video and audio, even when switched off. When re-activated, it saves the previous two minutes of footage.  

The disturbing video allegedly shows him lifting the sheet off the woman's body, before feeling her nipples and fondling her breasts. The incident came to light during a random inspection of bodycam footage, when a supervisor discovered it and reported him.

Woman left shocked after finding $37 million accidentally deposited in her bank account











Woman left shocked after finding $37 million accidentally deposited in her bank account









An American woman received the shock of her life after she checked the balance in her bank account and found $37,000,000 extra in it. 

The woman, Ruth Balloon from Dallas said she had thought it was an early Christmas gift from someone until she reached out to her bank and discovered it was only an error. 

“I was like, ‘wow, we have a lot of money’!, Ruth Balloon said after she checked her bank account balance with LegacyTexas Bank. “I hoped someone really gifted us with that $37-million,” she added. 

After she told her husband about the shocking discovery, they called the Bank who then told them it was a clerical error. 

According to her, the bank apologized and took back the money they had mistakenly deposited in Balloon's account. 

“I was a millionaire, I have a screenshot of it so I can say that now,” said Balloon. “It’s quite a story.”

She also hopes the bank will give her a reward for notifying them as soon as possible. .

“A ‘thank you’ reward would be a little bit good. Just for being a good customer and notifying them as soon as possible,” she said.

On what she would have done with money if it wasn't a mistake, she said: “First I was going to do 10% tithing. Then I was going to donate some money and then I would have invested in real estate.”

The Bank later released a statement addressing the error. 

On Tuesday, December 10, our client made a foreign currency deposit into her LegacyTexas account. Due to the fluctuation in exchange rates, all foreign currency transactions must be manually entered into our system through our back office. When our client’s deposit was being keyed in, our representative entered her account number into the amount field by mistake.

Although our client brought the error to our attention and the transaction was immediately reversed, less the amount of her original deposit, it would have been caught and corrected during our evening processing. Rest assured, our systems are sound, and this manual entry error has been addressed.

Father jailed for 8 -years for beating man to death after he attempted to violate his 16-year-old daughter













An Arizona father who beat a man to death after he tried to violate his daughter has been jailed for eight years. 

40-year-old Melvin Harris III was arrested in August 2018 after beating Leon Leevon Armstrong, 27, to death in the parking lot of a convenience store in Phoenix, Arizona. 

According to court records, Melvin had gone to pick up his teenage daughter and her two friends at the QT near 19th and Dunlap avenues just after 11:30 p.m. on Aug. 2. Harris was waiting in the parking lot when a man approached and asked him for money, records show. Harris gave him change and the man walked into the store.

While Harris was waiting in his car for his daughter and her friends, they told him Armstrong had tried forcefully to get into the bathroom stall she was in. 

Security guards were reportedly alerted and police were called but Harris still went ahead to beat Armstrong to death in the parking lot. 

Witnesses said Harris punched him in the face and kick and stomp on him, records show. Following the incident, Harris got into his car and drove home.

The man died in the hospital from brain swelling, a nasal fracture and loss of oxygen. 

Harris was later arrested and charged with second-degree murder but after he accepted a plea deal, the charge reduced to manslaughter. As part of the agreement, he will spend eight years behind bars.

CAN demands Tanko’s removal as Chief Justice of Nigeria










CAN demands Tanko?s removal as Chief Justice of Nigeria











The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has reacted to Chief Justice of Nigeria, Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad's call for the amendment of the constitution to accomodate more aspects of the Shari’a law.

Recall LIB reported that Tanko urged academics to champion the cause of redesigning the methods of teaching Shari’a law, while pointing out that implementation of his suggestions would be more feasible if universities give the Shari’a law its own faculty.

Reacting to the comment credited to the CJN, CAN raised an alarm of a plan to islamize Nigeria and backed its claim by pointing out that the President's recent appointment was in favour of a certain religion. 

The Christian group also called for the removal of Tanko and the Chief Justice of Nigeria over the comment it described as reprehensible, reckless and insensitive. According to the CAN, the CJN is religiously compromised and no longer trustworthy in the dispensation of justice. 

A statement by CAN President, His Eminence, Rev Dr. Samson Ayokunle which issued by his Special Assistant (Media & Communications) Pastor Adebayo Oladeji reads; 

“Our attention has been drawn to the advocacy of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammed for the amendment of the Constitution with a view to adding more Sharia contents.
“Justice Muhammed reportedly made the call while declaring open the 20th Annual Judges Conference at the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria Faculty of Law’s Moot Court.
“We have not seen the full text of the paper presented and we learnt the Chief Justice was represented at the event. So, it is difficult to know if the speech was that of the Chief Justice or his representative.
“We don’t believe that such a reckless and provocative statement could be made by the number one judicial officer in the country. How could the CJN say ‘We as Muslims have the numbers to amend the constitution’? It is not possible. It is either he was misquoted outright or quoted out of context.
“Asking for constitutional amendment with a view to adding more to the Sharia contents is ill-timed, provocative and unacceptable. Was the Chief Justice of Nigeria put there deliberately for the promotion of Islamic matters or to be unbiased and fair judge for all irrespective of religion? It appears from this statement (if he made it) that he was put there for Islamisation agenda.
“Those in government are warned not to use the cheap popularity or acceptance they seek to set two religious practitioners against each other.
“This type of statement, if true, is enough for the President of the country to initiate the removal of this Chief Justice from office. He is religiously biased and partisan. We have no more confidence in him. And we once again reiterate our advocacy for religious balanced in the appointments that are being made by the President.
“Lopsided appointments are direct contradictions to some portions of the 1999 Constitution (as amended). These include but not limited to Sections 10, 13 (3-4), 15 (2) (d) and (4). It is widely believed that no country survives two civil wars. Our leaders should be mindful of the complexities of the people they are leading.
“There have been Presidents, who are Christians. During their time, there was never a time they promoted their religion at the expense of others. Our leaders should stop paying lip service to the unity and peace of the country. 
“Do we take it that what he said is the official position of this regime on inter-faith relations? Why has no one in leadership, either, the Executive or Legislative arm of government taken him up on it? The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) is eagerly awaiting the rebuttal of the Chief Justice of Nigeria on the unfortunate and unguarded utterances that can provoke a religious crisis in the country."

Nigerian church in the UK investigated over claims pastors 'pushed congregration members into selling their blood to raise funds for the church'










Nigerian church in the UK investigated over claims pastors










Spac Nation church, a church headed by a Nigerian in the UK is reportedly under investigation over its alleged methods of raising funds.

The church which is headed by Tobi Adegboyega who came to Britain in 2005, has been accused of pushing its young members into selling their blood and also taking bank loans which they allegedly donate to the church to fund the lavish lifestyle of its pastors.

Nigerian church in the UK investigated over claims pastors

The church which was praised by politicians in the past for rehabilitating youths linked to gang violence, came under scrutiny following a number of exposés which alleged that it was pressuring young members to beg, borrow and steal money for the church.

UK's Charity Commission who confirmed the probe, said it was looking into the governance, management, policies and practices of Spac Nation church, a registered charity set up to spread Christianity, particularly in relation to the safeguarding of its beneficiaries and its financial arrangements.

Nigerian church in the UK investigated over claims pastors

Earlier this week, HuffPost UK reported that some Spac nation members allegedly took teenagers to donate blood for medical trials, in a practice known as “bleeding for seed”. The church has however denied the claim.

Labour MP Steve Reed, the Shadow Children’s Minister, previously told The Mail on Sunday:

‘The allegations I have received about Spac Nation from vulnerable young people are truly disturbing.
‘Victims are saying it is run like a cult. I want there to be a full investigation.’

Nigerian church in the UK investigated over claims pastors

The Charity Commission also revealed that Spac Nation had been subject to a regulatory compliance case since April 2018 after it received reports about safeguarding and financial concerns.

The commission said in a statement; 

“Of immediate concern to the commission is that substantial amounts of charity money are held in cash.  As a protective measure, the commission has issued an order under section 84 of the Charities Act, requiring the charity to bank its money.
“The commission is also concerned about the apparent lack of clarity between the personal, business and charity roles of leaders within the charity.
 “Charities exist to improve lives and strengthen society; the issues that have been raised related to Spac Nation in recent weeks are highly concerning, even more so as the allegations are entirely at odds with the expectations about the way that charities will operate.
“The opening of this inquiry is an important step that will allow us to examine these concerns further and establish the facts. We will seek to provide assurance to the public and the community that these matters will be considered fully and, where necessary, resolved.”

He said;

“It is in view of this that we wish to exhort our youths to start looking inwards, stay and advance the cause of their motherland. We have no other country than Nigeria. We should remain here to salvage the country together.”
