Former Nigerian Super Eagles World Cup star, Efetobore Sodje and his brothers have been charged with fraud offences after an investigation by the National Crime Agency, UK.

Efetobore Sodje, 34, Bright Sodje, 50, Samuel Sodje, 37, and Stephen Sodje, 42, were charged with fraudulent trading on Friday 21 October and bailed until 14 November 2016, when they will appear at Westminster Magistrates Court.

The four were arrested on 13 July after a three-year NCA investigation into 'alleged irregularities' at the Sodje Sports Foundation. Registered on March 1, 2010 and disbanded on January 2015.

The charity organization is supposedly aimed to relieve poverty, advance good health in people through the provision of facilities  in playing amateur sports and the promotion of lifelong learning, leadership skills and health issues such as HIV/AIDS, drugs abuse, and nutrition,. but the NCA is accusing them of  using it for other unrelated purposes.
Born in England, Efetobore played in the defence for the Super Eagles at the 2000 African Cup of Nations, and the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan. He played for clubs such as Hudderfield Town, Southend United, Crewe Alexandra and Macclesfield Town.

Watch video of man confess to raping and killing a 4 yr old girl during a live broadcast...

A man, known as Himmet Akturk has admitted to raping and killing a four-year-old girl during a live TV broadcast in Turkey.

The broadcast which investigated Akturk’s crimes was handled by a TV presenter, Muge Anli, who had started looking into the disappearance of a four-year-old Irmak Kupal, who went missing while playing outside her home in the Alasehir district of western Turkey’s Manisa Province.

Anli, who reportedly invited Akturk over for an investigative discussion on her Turkish TV show, which specialises on looking into family dramas and crimes, had allegedly, piled pressure on Akturk during his investigation of Irmak’s death, and was reported to have broken down, admitting being responsible for the victim’s death.

He was immediately arrested by police and taken in for further questioning where he allegedly made a full confession, telling the police that he had raped Irmak, strangled her and then buried the body. He said he put her body in a sack, stashed it underneath his wheelbarrow and dropped it off in a public bin. But when he realised the bin had not been emptied the following day, he retrieved the body and buried it in a nearby vineyard.

Police started digging in the area where he said he had disposed of her body and found the victim’s remains two days later. Officers working with police dogs also found hair and blood, believed to be from the victim, at Artuk’s home. The footage was part of his court case where he was then convicted until further hearing which will be held to determine his sentencing.

NNPC drops bombshell, N145 per litre of Petrol not possible now

As Nigerians grapple with recession, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Monday reminded the nation that the sale of petrol at N145 per litre was no longer feasible with the current price of foreign exchange.

The Group General Manager, Crude Oil Marketing, NNPC, Mr. Mele Kyari, stated this at this year’s Oil Trading and Logistics Expo, OTL, holding in Lagos.

He said: “We have a very difficult business environment. It is impossible today to import products at the current market price, at current fixed foreign exchange, FOREX rate.  There is no way today you can take products to retailers and sell at N145. It is not possible. If that is true and I believe that it is, because we all go to the market. Why can’t we sell above N145? That is where legislation should come in.”

Kyari, who explained that the current price was not realistic, however, said that any official increase by the government would not go down well with the citizenry as it will be resisted.

“I also know today that it is impossible for this government to announce tomorrow that petrol is about N150. This government cannot sustain it. That is the truth. The people will not accept that figure.

‘’That is why suppliers are not importing. It is not FX. We have created a niche market for the FX. I am part of the committee allocating FX. We gave FX. It was rejected. The reason being given is that FX is not enough to import. But that is not true.

“The truth is that marketers go back to the market and land it here, that you are required to sell it at N145 maximum. I am sure they won’t make it. We won’t let you do it today.

That is the main reason people are not importing today. It is not FX,” he added. Kyari further explained that Nigeria was still in a subsidy regime, as the NNPC took the bulk of importation to ensure that petrol was sold at the official rate of N145 per litre.

PDP claims FG and EFCC wants Fani Kayode dead

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has released a statement on Fani Kayode’s re-arrest saying the APC led Federal Government and the EFCC wants the former Minister dead. The statement released this morning reads:

“It is common knowledge that in furtherance of its campaign of attrition against members of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the guise of an anti-corruption war, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, former Spokesperson for the PDP Presidential Campaign Organization (PDPPCP) was arrested in the premises of the Federal High Court, Lagos.

“His re-arrest is the latest in a series of plans designed to further harass and intimidate our members and supporters using the security and intelligence apparatus of the Nigerian State.

“A few days before his arrest his wife, Precious Chikwendu and their 8 month old son, Aragorn, were arrested and would have been detained but for the timely intervention of Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State.

“What is not common knowledge is that at the time of his arrest, Chief Fani-Kayode was ill and taking medication. Since his arrest, he has been denied access to his medication and medical doctors who are conversant with his medical history.

“As at the time of writing this statement, officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have continued to deny Chief Fani-Kayode access to his medication.

“The only conclusion that can be reached is that the APC-led Federal Government and EFCC want Chief Fani-Kayode to die in EFCC detention. In the light of the prevailing circumstances where EFCC are detaining an obviously weak and ill man, this is an inescapable conclusion.

“These continuous violations of the constitutional rights and freedoms of the Nigerian people by the Buhari Administration must stop. The Federal Government cannot, and must not, be allowed to continually infringe on the rights of the very people it swore to uphold.

“We call on all well-meaning Nigerians to urge the Federal Government to desist from its path of human rights abuses.”

Photo of 8 prostitutes arrested from Gen. Azazi’s House Lagos

The Lagos State Government has arrested eight suspected prostitutes and three men in the house of late National Security Adviser, Gen. Andrew Owoye Azazi in Ikoyi area of Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.

The arrest was part of the Lagos State Government’s clean up exercise in Ikoyi and Victoria Island which have been overtaken by illegal and abandoned structures.

Officials of the Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit and the police from Ikoyi Police Station stormed Azazi’s abandoned house at 5 Club Road, Ikoyi and arrested eight suspected prostitutes plying their trade in the area, along with three other men.

Most of the young women arrested were from Benue State and will be charged to court by the taskforce for constituting nuisance in the area.

“I don’t know anything happening in the compound until Saturday when they came to arrest us by police from Ikoyi Police Station, they released us to come back and pack our things, when we were inside to pack our loads, they came back and arrested us again. Nobody has come to warn us to stay away from there,” said Patience Ajoke, one of the suspected prostitutes.

Mary Augustine, a 20-year old suspected prostitute from Benue State told Pm News she was arrested because she was staying at Azazi’s house, saying she was not a prostitute but a cleaner.

According to Anjo Blessing, 24, Benue State, “I work as a cook with Mrs Essie John. I was arrested because they told us to pack out of the house. We were packing our things when the police came and arrested us. Even if you go there now, my clothes are still on the ground.”

But Taskforce chairman, Yinka Egbeyemi said the women were prostitutes and had turned Azazi’s house into a prostitute den.

“We have been there once with the DPO of Ikoyi Police Station. They sell ‘paranga’ in that place,” saying that policemen and soldiers were always seen at the place patronizing them, adding that the people living in that place had been told to vacate the place long ago, but that they refused to leave.

“During the clean up exercise, we were asked to move there again. We saw policemen and military men there and all sort of human beings. They are doing prostitution business there. We are going to charge them to court,’ he said.

Egbeyemi said the clean up exercise was ongoing and would be total, adding that the state government had issued ultimatum to owners of abandoned properties in Ikoyi and Victoria Island to rehabilitate them or forfeit them to the government.

Police have arrested 11 Nigerians for allegedly trafficking young women and girls from Nigeria to exploit them as sex slaves in the southern Italian city of Catania.

Police Officer Antonio Salvago said Monday, October 24th, that the victims underwent a voodoo rite to bind them to their debts after they promised to pay up to 40,000 euros ($43,000) for a journey they thought would bring them to a better life in Europe, a rite which made them obey their smugglers and pimps.

The victims, all under age 25 and some as young as 16, traveled through Libya before crossing the Mediterranean by boat with thousands of other migrants
Catania Chief Prosecutor Carmelo Zuccaro says the investigation shows that illegal immigration breeds more serious crimes of exploitation and forced prostitution.

Shocking! Watch video of a young teenage Goalkeeper wake up from coma speaking fluent Spanish ...photo

Reuben Nsemoh, son of Dora and Emmanuel Nsemoh, was the goalkeeper for their National League soccer team. During a game, a player kicked the 16-year-old goalie from Brookwood High School (Snellville, Georgia.) in the head when he dived for the ball. This collision caused him to go into shock with a severe concussion. The accident was serious enough that Reuben had to be airlifted off the field to an Atlanta hospital where he spent over a week in ICU.

When Reuben Nsemoh woke up from a three-day coma in ICU, he was speaking fluent Spanish instead of English. He had never spoken the language before.
The first thing he said after he motioned for food was:
“Tengo hambre,” which means “I am hungry” in Spanish.
His mother was shocked. She said:
“I was very shocked. That’s something he’s never done before. When he got up and he started speaking Spanish, I was confused”.
Reuben said he has a lot of Spanish-speaking friends, who speak the language when he is around. He believes this might have had something to do with the strange episode that shocked and confused his parents.
"My friends would always talk to me in Spanish and would teach me," he told WSB. "I wasn't perfect, but my brother is a really fluent Spanish speaker. So he kind of inspired me with that too."
Traumatic brain injuries can cause short and long term changes in language, according to TBI researchers with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 
As he recovered, Reuben started to speak English again, and he later talked to reporters while recovering at home. 
"Sometimes I daze out," Reuben told a WSBTV reporter. "Sometimes I feel like I am not there, but I am."
He was recently released from hospital and is currently recuperating at home under his parents' care. Unfortunately, Reuben's seizures have not stopped.

His parents said it was his third concussion but he said he hopes to return to the field and has no intention to wear a helmet. 
"It's my passion. It's the one thing I want to do for my career," Nsemoh said.
