Part of the numerous celebrities and ordinary people whom Prince touched, is our own CharlyBoy The AreaFada. This is what CharlyBoy had to say about the brief encounter he had with Prince.

"It was way back in the early eighties as a groupie with a backstage pass. In the same room with Prince? I may have walked away that night with only a handshake, but it was a handshake that changed my life for the better. It awoken a desire to be an entertainer like this Demi god that just shook my hand..

From that night, I became an avid fan. I read and followed any news on him, I listened with wrapt attention. The more I researched him the more I fell in love with him, you can take that literally. If I ever had any gay tendencies, he would have been the one I would have given my body to, even though Prince wasn't gay.

Seen here at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library Wildlife Park in Abeokuta – from left: Peter, Liza with Patience, and Mr. President. As President of Nigeria, he visited Drill Ranch in 2001, and made a follow up visit in 2011. President Obasanjo recognises the special care needs of chimpanzees and therefore decided to place 3 year old Patience with Pandrillus so she can grow up in the forest as part of the large chimpanzee group at Drill Ranch Afi Mountain. Thank you, Mr. President!

Patience is a fantastic chimpanzee who has been well cared for by the staff of the OOPL Wildlife Park. Once she has completed her medical screening in Calabar, she will join the group at the newly completed Nigerian Chimpanzee Center – located at Drill Ranch Afi Mountain in Boki LGA of Cross River State.
Pandrillus thanks Mr. President and his staff for their logistical support and hospitality during Peter and Liza’s working visit. We also thank Air Peace for carrying all three back to Calabar.

Welcome, Patience!

A Federal High Court in Abuja heard on Wednesday how ex-Governor Ikedi Ohakim of Imo State allegedly bought a property in Abuja worth about $2.3m cash concealed in a “Ghana-Must-Go” bag.

A prosecution witness, Abu Sule, who was cross-examined by Ohakim’s lawyer, Awa Kalu (SAN), said he collected $2.29m cash in “Ghana-Must-Go” bag from Ohakim, with which he assisted the former governor to buy a property in highbrow Asokoro area of the FCT.

He said that Ohakim handed the $2.29m (an equivalent of N270m) to him in $100 bills at night
sometime in November 2008, for give to then owner of the property, Alhaji Isah Maidabino, the next day.

Sule, an architect and Managing Director of Tweenex Consociates H.D Limited, said he kept the money in the boot of his car overnight before handing it over to Maidabino, now a director in the office of the Head of Service of the Federation.

“The money ($2.29m) was given to me by the defendant. It was given to me in a ‘Ghana-Must-Go’ bag and that was how I transported it. It was in $100 bills. I didn’t count the money and he (Ohakim) didn’t request for counting because we trusted each other. But I counted it along with Alhaji Maidabino.

“I did not issue a receipt because a receipt was not demanded. I was sent an errand and I delivered it. I carried the money to a bank in Maitama in Unity Bank. I handed over the money to Alhaji Maidabino at Unity Bank.

“Alhaji Maidabino issued deed of assignment and sale agreement to me. He did not acknowledge the receipt of the sum in writing.

“I didn’t pay the money into any account. I didn’t see Alhaji Maidabino pay that sum into any account. I did not witness any [other] transaction.

“What Alhaji did with the money, I don’t know. But he handed over the title documents of the property to me,” Sule said.
