When the law is discriminatory
Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Adamu
…charges them to deploy their wealth of experience in tackling security challenges

Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu on Tuesday decorated seven newly promoted Assistant Inspectors General of Police and seven Commissioners of Police with a charge the officers to deploy their wealth of experience towards curtailing the myriads of security challenges confronting the nation.

Adamu said, “I am convinced that all of you, newly promoted officers fit perfectly into my human capacity development vision. Let me however; remind you that to whom much is given, much more shall be expected.

“The Police leadership demands of you, higher sense of commitment to duty, and the nation expects  of you exceptional display of loyalty, courage and professional competence which are needed to move the Nigeria Police and our beloved country into the next level in relation to internal security”.

“I trust that you shall not fail the Nigeria Police Force, neither will you fail the nation in the critical responsibilities that your new rank shall impose on you”.

Noting that, “No organization can advance beyond the competence of its strategic leaders; neither can any organizational goals and plans be attained without a crop of highly committed personnel to drive the implementation process” the IGP said, “This assertion is even more critical for a law enforcement agency that is as strategic to internal security of the nation as the Nigeria Police force”.

“This is because the increasing complexity of crime and the challenges of policing a nation as diverse as ours require quality police managers that have the requisite professional knowledge, experience and competency to effectively provide leadership”.

He added, “It in cognizance of this that I have been collaborating with the Police Service Commission in ensuring that appropriate processes are emplaced to identify and promptly elevate deserves officers for promotion.

“This is a strategic management approach that is directed at motivating the workforce of the Nigeria Police personnel in committing to the duty of addressing current emerging internal security challenges”.

I have to really write this letter angrily because of how disappointed I am by your threats on Nigeria because we don’t support homosexuality. I know that everyone has the right to choose what they want, and it doesn’t always have to be in line with what the majority go with. However, it is important to make choices that wouldn’t affect others. Now it seems some of the support given to you Joe Biden, by some people were based on some reasons, but some of them were not aware that you are fully in support of the LGBTQI community.

I have to say this because I know that a very large percent of Nigerians are against homosexuality. However, it seems most people who supported you didn’t really take this serious. Now it appears that after you got a lot of support from Nigerians, you still went ahead to threaten financial and visa sanctions against Nigeria.

This is basically because Nigeria is strongly against these practices, and the act is also punishable by law here in Nigeria. I am sure that a very large percentage of those who also supported you are strongly against homosexuality. I also know that the homosexuality issue was one of the first issues you attended to immediately you assumed office.

This obviously hurt some of your supporters here in Nigeria and America. This means that it may soon become difficult for Nigerians to fly to the US if we do not fully embrace homosexuality. Incase you don’t know, it would be very difficult for Nigeria to accept such practice because of how religious we are. This country is made up of a lot of christian and muslims, and both religions do not support homosexuality.

This even made me wonder why some people supported you when they were fully aware about your stand on homosexuality. Donald Trump had his flaws while he was also in power, and his strict rules seemed to have affected Nigeria in some ways. However, what you are trying to do is obviously going to negatively affect Nigeria in a serious way if this issue is taken up seriously against us.

I sincerely hope that the sanctions shouldn’t take effect, and we here in Nigeria should be left to continue living and abiding by our laws. I feel the practices we choose to practice here in Nigeria is our choice, and it has kept this country running for a long time. I have said this before, it would be very difficult for a country like Nigeria to accept homosexuality because of how religious we are.

This is story of this young lady who shared her story on twitter makes me to understand how men that enable Ladies entitlement mentality.

If a man can hurriedly do this to a lady he barely know, a girl he met at a place with overly priced drinks, loud music and where you vibe with a total stranger, what would became of the ladies when they agree to be their girlfriends. If they demand for your kidney or any sensitive and vital part of your body, it shouldn’t be out of place because you have given them the platform.

This young lady by name Chidinma took to her twitter with the handle @The_chiii to share her encounter with a man at the club. According to her, she went to the club with a man friend while they were sipping their drinks, a man from the VIP section sent one of his boys to go call her. According to her, she did not answer him let alone give ears to what he had to say. 

Minutes later, the said “big man” came by himself and started spraying money on her in the presence of the man she came with. To me, that was the height of disrespect for the man that she came with. Although she said that she did not go with the “big man” because she loved and respected the man she was with, I wondered if she wasn’t in love with her boyfriend what would have happened? Maybe she would have gone with him.

But I want to ask the men, how will you feel if a man does something like that to you? What will be your reaction?

Earlier today Friday, February 5, 2021, the late Air Commodore Idongesit Nkanga who reportedly died of COVID-19 was laid to rest in a befitting manner at his hometown, Ikot Nya in Nsit Ibom, Akwa Ibom State. He died on 24th December 2020 following complications from the monster virus, COVID-19 before the eve of Christmas Celebration.

Otuekong Idongesit Nkanga was governor of Akwa Ibom State in Nigeria from September 1990 to January 1992 during the military regime of General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, and later handed over to an elected civilian Governor at the start of the Nigerian third Republic. 

However, during his time as a governor, he made efforts to put the state in a position where others were envious of his achievements within a short period of time. As a matter of fact, the Akwa Ibom Broadcasting Corporation was established by edict in April 1988. Wing Commander Nkanga officially commissioned the station on 27 July 1991.

He also built a state-of-the-art secretariat which is named after him in the state. According to official report, in 2007, Nkanga was appointed Chairman of the Akwa Ibom Airport Implementation Committee. The International airport was opened on November 26, 2009. Although the primary focus was on cargo traffic and airplane maintenance repair and overhaul, the airport started by serving commercial local passenger flights (Ibom Air). 

Indeed, he was a respected elder statesman who was widely known for his simplicity and hospitality in diverse spheres. He contributed to the growth and development of the State and empowering young people to be self-reliance and to be responsible in life. 

It was observed that the Akwa Ibom State government in a special way, paid a last respect to the late Air Commodore, Indongesit at the state Assembly before he was finally taken for final interment at his hometown. 

Read the message below and photos from the State house of Assembly where a pair of shoes and a cap was spotted on the casket as a way of honour to the late elder statesman. 

In his tribute to the late Air Commodore Idongesit Nkanga, Nsikak Akpan wrote on his Facebook page,

“Smile On Your Excellency… forever in our Hearts.. I never Knew when I took this pictures, it will be used for your burial program. But Heaven knows best. It pains me you are no more. I always call you “The Great One” each time I say your ‘Excellency’ you will turn it into music 🎼 signing… The Most Excellency is Jesus..shout Hallelujah Amen”

Adieu Sir!

The rate at which members of the same families are butchering each other is alarmingly increasing and some of these cases are horrifying and immensely disturbing. This is the story of Aasia Bibi, now in her mid twenties, and in prison for life and here’s why.

When she was 21 years old, she was forced to marry a guy who was a total stranger and this was the beginning of her misery.

A few months into the marriage, she was still unhappy as she was in love with another man. These did not help her situation so she decided the best way out of her marriage was to kill her husband. So she added poison to a glass of milk and have her husband drank. But somehow her husband didn’t drink the milk and his mother later used it to make a yogurt like drink which she( the mother in-law) served to 27 of the family members.

Shortly after drinking it, they started showing symptoms of poisoning and they were rushed to the hospital.

Fifteen of them ended up dying while the others barely survived. Aasia, her lover and her aunt who helped her in plotting the murder were later charged and convicted of their crimes.

The House of Representatives Committee on Public Accounts has expressed displeasure over its discovery of five years unaudited accounts of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMB) and the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TEFFUND).

Rep Oluwole Oke, Chairman of the Committee, conveyed the committee’s anger at the investigative hearing on audit queries by the Auditor-General of Federation (AGF) of Ministries Department and Agencies of government, on Thursday, in Abuja.

Oke said that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) had not paid their respective 30 per cent and 20 per cent equity capital as shareholders of the bank, as stipulated by the FMB establishment Act.

The Committee queried the Managing Director of FMB, Mr Ahmed Dangiwa and other officials of the bank on the five years unaudited accounts, while noting that the audit queries raised by the AGF on the MDAs, had shown that their revenue profiles were on the decline.

Oke expressed dissatisfaction with non-compliance of the agencies to the extant provisions of the laws on audited accounts, in spite of previous appearances before the committee on the contentious issue.

Responding, Dangiwa explained that the Federal Government had paid N60 million out of the N1.5 billion, being its share of equity in the bank, adding that the audited accounts were ready, but awaiting the approval of the bank’s board.

He said that the present management of the bank inherited the five years unaudited accounts from its predecessor, but had made efforts to clear them.

The managing director also explained that the federal government owned 50 per cent of FMB, with the CBN owning 30 per cent, while the NSITF’s share was 20 per cent, of the bank’s percentage equity shareholding.

EFCC officials

A legal practitioner, Mr Ifeanyi Mamah, has petitioned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) over alleged fraud by an online Ponzi scheme known as MyBONUS.

Mamah, who also petitioned the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) said on Thursday in Abuja that MyBONUS allegedly swindled its victims up to the tune of over two billion naira.

He said that MyBONUS floated by some group of persons allegedly committed the fraud in connivance with a microfinance bank, `Kuda Microfinance Bank Ltd’ with headquarters in Lagos.

“We are begging the EFCC, NFIU and AGF for urgent intervention in recovering the money for the victims and forestalling future occurrences,’’ Mamah said.

He alleged that leaders of the syndicate operated myBONUS2U technology, popularly known as myBONUS, “whose website is mybonus2u.com’’.

He said that the platform was a fraudulent cashback one which, by their representations, ensured members received cashback while shopping online from over 700 commerce stores globally.

According to him, this notwithstanding, investors convinced to put in their monies given assurance of certain percentage interest and withdrawal of capital on demand.

“The unsuspecting victims were promised to receive capital back on demand, in addition to other privileges,” he said.

He said that it was discovered that the syndicate whose names and accounts were used for the scheme with the Kuda Microfinance Bank Ltd (RC796975) turned out to be a fraud.

He said that since January 2021 the investment platform, website, and software application, discovered to have been intentionally floated to allegedly defraud unsuspecting victims by the group, had been disabled.

“The operators of the scheme completely disconnected from the victims and totally lost communications.

“Consequently, victims’ capitals, amongst others running into billions of Naira, paid into the individuals accounts with Kuda Microfinance Bank Ltd and provided by myBONUS, cannot be accessed any longer.

“The website’s server DNS can no longer be found and MyBONUS application downloaded from Google play store is no more functional since January 2021,’’ Mamah said.

He, therefore, called on the relevant authorities to use the relevant laws in bringing the alleged fraudsters to book and weed the country’s cyberspace of crimes.

However, Kuda Microfinance Bank Ltd via its official email address help@kudabank.com, said that the allegations were false.

One of its Customer Service Officers, Ms Jennifer Obiakor said: “being a bank, Kuda can never help fraudsters. We do not and will never support anyone who tries to swindle Nigerians.”

“We have locked all accounts involved in this and we are working closely with regulators to prevent the activities of potential scammers,’’ Obiakor told NAN.

One really needs to be extra careful when traveling abroad or if someone says they should help deliver something abroad for another person. A secret place was found out by NDLEA about where cocaine was kept and to be transported abroad for sale. It’s a suprise that cocaine could be hidden in a T-shirt so as to by pass security.

As we all know, taking cocaine is illegal so also is trafficking it for sale. It’s why it is always been concealed from the securities at all times. Who would ever thought that a cocaine could be hidden in a T-shirt. The vigilant operatives of the NDLEA Nigeria were very much at alert. They seized the Cocaine concealed in T-shirts at Muritala Muhammed International Airport in Ikeja, Lagos State.

A video was made to show how it was carefully concealed. It was hidden in front of the logo in front of the t-shirt. This is a warning for people who likes collecting things from people to help deliver abroad.
