25 ex-ministers, aides in GEJ government under probe ...photo

At least 25 persons who served as ministers, aides or advisers to former President Goodluck Jonathan are being either investigated or prosecuted by the EFCC and the ICPC.

Apart from ministers and aides, Jonathan’s wife, Patience, and his cousin, Azibaola Robert, who is the Managing Director of OnePlus Holdings, are also under probe for an alleged $20m and $40m fraud, respectively.

Also, over 15 heads of agencies and heads of military establishments who served under Jonathan are also under probe or prosecution.

Investigations by Punch, based on reports issued by the EFCC in the last 10 months, revealed that the probes range from the $15bn arms scam to the alleged disbursement of N23bn stolen oil funds and other allegations of financial impropriety.

One of those under probe is a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, whose accounts have been frozen while some of her properties, including a mansion worth N3.58bn in Abuja, have been seized by the EFCC.

Diezani, who claims to be suffering from cancer, has been in London since May 2015, where she is also being investigated by British anti-crime agencies.

Among other things, Diezani is accused of diverting $115m (N23bn) oil cash and distributing it to prominent members of the PDP during the build-up to the 2015 presidential election.

According to EFCC sources, some of the ex-ministers who allegedly received the cash from Diezani and are now under probe include: a former Minister of State for FCT, Jumoke Akinjide (N650m); a former Minister of State for Finance, Amb. Bashir Yuguda (N450m); a former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Amb Aminu Wali (N950m); and a former Minister of State, Foreign Affairs, Dr. Nurudeen Muhammad (N500m).

A former NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), is alleged to have disbursed about $2.1bn arms money.

Dasuki was alleged to have transferred about N4.7bn to a former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro; who is also under EFCC investigation. Obanikoro has reportedly returned N100m to the EFCC.

Some others under probe include a former Minister of FCT, Senator Bala Mohammed; a former Minister of Interior, Abba Moro; a former Minister of Aviation, Senator Stella Oduah; another former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode; a former Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Prof. Viola Onwuliri; a former Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke (SAN); a former Minister of Labour and productivity, Senator Joel Danlami; a former Minister of State for Niger Delta Affairs, Godsday Orubebe; and a former Minister of Education, Ibrahim Shekarau.

Apart from Dasuki, some aides under investigation or prosecution include: a former Special Adviser to the President on Domestic Affairs, Waripamowei Dudafa; a former Principal Secretary to the President, Mr. Hassan Tukur; a former Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati and a former Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr. Doyin Okupe.

Others include: a former Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affairs and the Chairman of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Kingsley Kuku; Jonathan’s Aide-de-Camp, Col. Ojogbane Adegbe; and the Chief of Staff to the President, Gen. Jones Arogbofa.

The Federal Government had in June released a list of recovered loot. In a statement by the Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the government revealed the recoveries were made between May 29, 2015 and May 25, 2016.

The government gave the breakdown of the loot as:
N78,325,354,631.82; $185,119,584.61; £3,508,355.46 and €11, 250.

A conversion of the funds using the official exchange rate of the Central Bank of Nigeria, the amount adds up to N115,792,760,499.

The monies were said to have been recovered by the EFCC, the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation; the ICPC and the Department of State Services.

The Muhammadu Buhari-led government added that a separate amount of cash and assets worth over N1.9tn had also been seized. 

The assets and cash seized under interim forfeiture totalled: $9bn, N126bn, £2.4m and €303,399.

But all the properties and cash are under legal contention, so government can't spend them for now.

Must read! Shocking confession of a millionaire armed robber... photo

At 30, Zakeri Isiaka is a millionaire and a frightening one. In political circles in Kogi State, it is said that a mere mention of his name sends shivers down the spines of those familiar with his activities.

To Kogi State indigenes, Isiaka is a dreaded political thug, who killed at will. To the police, he is a combination of a daring robber and killer. But to his family, he is the husband to 9 wives and a father to 15 children.
But the negative descriptions are all inaccurate, according to Isiaka’s statement to the police. He said he was a freedom fighter “out to rescue Kogi State from the clutches of evil men controlling the affairs of the state.”

Asked about a number of killings which he allegedly carried out in Kogi State, Isiaka said those he was accused of killing were his political foes and criminals who were after his life.

A source said he got on the radar of the police when he allegedly led a gang that attacked operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Response Team in July 2016 and snatched a rifle from them.

But on October 23, a three-month operation to track him down paid off when members of the IRT cornered him on the Okene–Akure Expressway and apprehended him while he was on his way to Akure, Ondo State.

He was transferred to the Force Headquarters, Abuja, where he promptly gave a detailed account of his operations, which spanned several states.

A police source told The Punch that Isiaka’s gang were responsible for many cases of kidnaps and robberies in Kogi and other North Central states.

When Isiaka was arrested, police recovered 15 rifles along with several magazines and ammunition from him. One of the guns was the one his gang allegedly snatched from the IRT.

The day the gang snatched the gun, operatives of the IRT were in the state to rescue a kidnap victim, Edward Amedu, being held in a forest camp by Isiaka’s men.

When the gang sighted the police team, he was said to have ordered his men to open fire on police.

The police source said that in the process, two operatives of the IRT sustained bullet wounds. At the end of the operation, the IRT had lost a rifle to Isiaka’s team.

Two of his men were said to have been arrested at the time of the operation. They later led the police to where the victim was rescued.

Isiaka, a native of Odu-Ochelle in Dekina area of Kogi State, allegedly started off as a robber before joining militants in the Niger Delta and later became a political thug, who at a point, took control of his entire local government area.

Isiaka said he was once a farmer, who laboured for eight years till he could no longer endure the suffering and travelled to Port Harcourt where he joined the group of militant leader, Ateke Tom.

He said, “I dropped out of secondary school and had nothing else to do but to go into farming at Iseyin, Oyo State. I did that till I went to Port Harcourt and started living with a young man. One day, I went to a joint where I normally smoked Indian hemp and saw some men discussing there. I realised they were militants involved in oil theft.

“I approached them and told them I was interested in joining them. They gave me the beating of my life. They accused me of being an informant. I was beaten for almost one week before one of them, who said he was one of Ateke Tom’s boys, finally said I could join them.

“He taught me how to handle guns and we burst many pipelines together. I was making almost N3m in each operation. After making enough money, I moved to Abuja and built a house. I bought some cars and started a car dealership. When I left the creeks, I came back with three guns, which I took to my village in Kogi.

“The sitting governor of Kogi State at the time, had given guns to thugs in the state. Because these same thugs killed my blood brothers during a disagreement, I had to keep the guns in Kogi so that I could use them to protect myself.”

Isiaka said during the 2011 governorship election in Kogi State between Idris Wada and Prince Abubakar Audu, he went home to “protect” the votes of his people.

According to him, the guns he brought back from the Niger Delta came in handy. He said despite this, one of his friends was killed during the election.

The suspect said, “After that election, I came back to Abuja and continued my business. I am a kind man, I even bought motorcycles for people as gifts. I first married three wives.

“Before the 2015 election, thugs of the Peoples Democratic Party and All Progressives Congress had a clash. I had to come back home and fight on the side of the APC. That was when the APC knew that I had become a powerful person. They realised they needed me.

“During the presidential election, Prince Audu gave me N30m to work for his party. But my younger brother, Farouk, was killed by PDP thugs in front of my father. He was picked up in his room where he slept beside his wife. They killed him and took his body away.

“When it was time for the governorship election, Prince Audu called me again and mobilised me with N20m and promised that he would make me the Chief Security Officer of the state if he won.

“He said he would make me Kogi’s youth leader and I would even be in charge of collecting revenue on farm produce in the state.

“My boys and I worked very hard. I was almost killed when I was ambushed by a PDP thug. So, I would have become the state’s CSO if Prince Audu had not died.”

Isiaka claimed that when Governor Yahaya Bello assumed office, he had made overtures to him, indicating that he could be useful to his government but got no reply.

According to him, some individuals might have scuttled his chances because of his closeness to the late Audu.

Isiaka said, “The people I fought were PDP thugs, who wanted to kill me and since APC came into power I have called on all my boys who are into armed robbery to stop because I have repented.

“Few weeks before the last governorship election, I communicated with some of my boys from Okene, who used to rob in my area. I advised them to quit because I discovered that the people of Kogi State wanted change and they were accepting what I was telling them. I knew that if APC won, my boys and I would enjoy.

“But they refused, so, I tricked them. I told them that I had a job for them and when they came to my town, I took them to a hotel. While they were inside, my boys went to where they parked their operational vehicle and stole all their guns.

“I control all the APC thugs in Kogi State and since I repented, I have been seriously against crime. Any of my boys who got involved in kidnapping, I personally arrested and handed over to the police but in most cases the police would release them after collecting money.

The police in Kogi State can confirm this. After all I did, the state governor (Bello) did not appreciate my efforts. He believes that I am still in support of Prince Audu’s son, Mohammed, but that is not true. My loyalty is to APC.”

Speaking about some of the robbery operations he was involved in, Isiaka said few weeks before the governorship election in Kogi in 2015, he and his gang robbed a vehicle carrying a huge amount of money in Abuja. He said he made over N50m from the operation and that he narrowly escaped death as one of his gang members attempted to kill him.

According to him, one Dan brought the job to him.

“He told me that some politicians were moving money around Abuja and it seemed that the money was meant for election. We planned our operation and we ambushed the driver and snatched the vehicle.

“After the operation, I kept three Ghana-Must-Go bags for myself and I gave Dan and others involved two bags to share. But while we were sharing the money, Dan, who had a gun with him, wanted to shoot me. He ended up shooting himself.”

The suspect said in another operation in Okene, Kogi State, his gang made N10m.

He said he lost seven of his rifles to the police in Niger State after they arrested his younger brother, who gave one of his guns to a friend. The friend then used it to snatch a car.

According to Isiaka, he gave the guns to his manager for safe-keeping but said when he was away for the election, his younger brother decided to rent out one of the guns to his friend.

“When my brother and his friend were arrested, he led the police to my car stand in Abuja where police seized all the vehicles in it and they also carried away my seven rifles.”

Despite his situation, Isiaka has a word of advice to the government on how to curtail crime.

He said amnesty should be offered to anyone carrying a gun in the state, saying that there are too many guns on the loose.

This Chinese woman hasn't cut her hair for 18 years and spends two hours daily washing it ...photo

Ni Linmei a 60yr old woman from China's Shanxi province hasn't cut her hair since 1998 and since then, it has grown to 11ft and 9inches. Having such generous locks can be problematic and time consuming, she once got her hair trapped in an elevator and spends all of two hours a day just washing and drying it.

She is reportedly looking to get into the Guinness Book of World Records but she has some way to go. The current record holder for longest documented hair belongs to Xie Qiuping of China. She set the record in 2004, when Guinness adjudicators measured her hair at 18 feet, 5.54 inches. It took her 31 years to grow it that long.

Jay Z & Beyonce get on stage for Hillary Clinton ...photo

Jay Z and Beyonce just endorsed Hillary Clinton in the biggest way possible. On Friday, the get-out-the-vote campaign concert took place in Cleveland with star performances from the power pair, Chance The Rapper, J Cole and Big Sean.

The string of concerts have been designed to drive up the turnout among younger voters.
Speaking to the crowd, Beyonce - whose dancers all wore 'I'm with her' T-shirts - shared an impassioned speech, saying she would like to see daughter Blue grow up seeing a "woman lead our country and know that her possibilities are limitless".

"Less than 100 years ago women did not have the right to vote," the mum-of-one said. "Look how far we've come from having no voice to being on the brink of making history - again - by electing the first woman president. But we have to vote.

"The world looks to us as a progressive country that leads change. Eight years ago I was so inspired to know that my nephew, a young black child, could grow up knowing his dreams could be realised by witnessing a black president in office.

"And now we have the opportunity to create more change. I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman lead our country and know that her possibilities are limitless.

"We have to think about the future of our daughters, our sons, and vote for someone who cares for them as much as we do. And that is why I'm with her."

In response, Hillary said: "When I see them, hear this passion and energy and intensity, I don't even know where to begin. Because this is what America is, my fiends."

Na wa o! Photo of former banker arraigned by EFCC for N52M theft

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Friday, November 4, arraigned one Oluwatoyin Jinadu, a former banker with First City Monument Bank, FCMB, before Justice Sylvanus Oriji of the FCT High Court sitting in Apo, Abuja on a 20-count charge bordering on theft and forgery to the tune of N52million.
Trouble started for Jinadu when a petition was sent to the EFCC alleging that as account officer to Dr. D. K. Okoye in the Wuse 2 Branch of the bank, she fraudulently transferred N52million from Dr. Okoye’s account without his knowledge or consent, into accounts in Zenith Bank, GTBank and Union Bank. These transfers were alleged to have been done through forged transfer instructions.

Jinadu was first arraigned before Justice Adebukola Banjoko of the FCT High Court on July 12, 2012, but the case had been dragging following several frivolous applications to the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court by the defence counsel, including a petition alleging bias on the presiding Judge – a situation that led to the withdrawal of the trial judge.

The defendant pleaded not guilty when the charges were read to her.
In view of her plea, counsel to EFCC, Samuel Ugwuegbulam, urged the court to fix a date for trial.
However, counsel to the defence, M. A. Awul, through an oral application urged the court to grant the accused bail relying on Section 162 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, ACJA, and Section 36 (5) of the Nigerian Constitution.

According to him, "the accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty. We urge your lordship to allow the defendant to continue on the existing bail granted him by your learned brother or in the alternative, grant her bail on such terms the court may consider appropriate to enable her attend trial".

Responding, Ugwuegbulam opposed the application stating that “since the former presiding judge has declined jurisdiction on the matter, the bail has automatically elapsed. Also my lord, punishment for the offence the defendant is being charged is enough incentive for her to jump bail”.

He argued further that "the defendant, if granted bail will obstruct justice owing to the fact that she had earlier employed delay tactics by filing several frivolous applications in the bid to frustrate the case and this led to the case dragging for a long time. I urge the court to decline the bail application and instead, give the matter accelerated hearing".

Justice Oriji granted the accused bail in the sum of N8million with two sureties in like sum. The sureties must be residents in Abuja. One of the sureties must be a civil servant in the federal civil service and below GL12. Their addresses must be verified by the court.

The case has been adjourned to December 5, 2016 and January 17 – 18 2017 for trial. Meanwhile, the accused is to be remanded in prison custody pending the fulfillment of the bail conditions.

Wow! Lagos Chief Judge grants amnesty to eleven prison inmates

Image result for images of justice Olufunmilayo Atilade
The Chief Judge of Lagos State, Justice Olufunmilayo Atilade has granted amnesty to 11 inmates of the Badagry Prisons.
The freed prisoners were among the 174 inmates whose names were sent to the Lagos State Prisons Decongestion Committee headed by Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye for a review of their cases.
Exercising her constitutional powers to grant amnesty to deserving prisoners, Justice Atilade released the 11 inmates from incarceration and urged them not to indulge in any criminal activities in the outside world.
"Having been informed by the prison officials of the offences for which you have been in prison for a period longer than three months, and in pursuance of the provisions of Sections 1(1) of the Criminal Justice (Release from Custody) Act, 2007 as well as Section 35 of the 1999 Constitution, you are all hereby released from custody today, November 3, 2016. This is without prejudice to any charge that may be preferred against you at a later date; I, therefore, enjoin you to turn a new leaf and go and sin no more."
The CJ also noted that it was her first visit to the Badagry Prisons since her appointment as Lagos Chief Judge, emphasizing that one of her goals is to ensure a reduction in the number of awaiting trial inmates across the State.

She, however, thanked various stakeholders like the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP), Office of the Public Defender (OPD), Prisons Decongestion Committee and numerous Non-Governmental Organizations that have worked tirelessly to ensure the freedom of the inmates.

Earlier in his welcome address, Deputy Comptroller of Badagry Prisons Mr. Oye Famuwagun applauded the CJ for her kind gesture but appealed to her for assistance to procure additional vehicles to convey inmates to eight court locations across the State.

On my assumption of duty, I clearly expressed my disposition and resolve to fight crime and criminality to a standstill in the state. By His Grace, I have kept faith with that. Also in my maiden address I charged my men to brace up to the challenges and warned criminals to repent, relocate or face the full weight of the law. And we are not going back on it. I came at a time when the state was bedeviled with all manners of criminal activities like Cultism, Kidnapping, Murder and Armed Robbery. Apparently you can agree with me that these crimes have drastically reduced. We took the war to them and the onslaught has been wonderful.

Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), on Friday, November 4th, arrested four drug couriers at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, while attempting to take the drugs to China, Indonesia and Qatar.
The spokesman of the anti-narcotics agency, Mr. Mitchell Ofoyeju, gave the names of the suspects as Aniebue Peter Nnamma, 50; Sokpe Zubbye, alias Nzube Chukwudi), 37; Ugwuezumba Hyacinth Arinze, 38; and Obinna James Obi, 30.

Nnamma, who sells clothes at Aswani Market in Lagos, inserted 11 wraps of cocaine weighing 460 grammes into his anus. He blamed his involvement in the crime on financial hardship.
"It was financial hardship that made me smuggle the drug. I was afraid of swallowing the drug, so I inserted eleven wraps of cocaine weighing 460 grammes into my anus. I sell clothes at Aswani Market, but poor patronage and family problems have turned me into a pauper. I regret everything" he lamented.
In his confessional statement, Zubbye, a freight forwarder from Anambra State with a Ghanaian passport, who ingested 955 grammes of cocaine, said he was promised N1 million by sponsors to smuggle the drug abroad.
"I work in China as a freight forwarder and I am married with two children. Due to the recession, I am having difficulty in settling my bills and I was lured into drug trafficking while seeking assistance. They promised me N1 million. Since I live in China, I felt it would be easy for me to go through security checks,  but unfortunately, I was caught," he said in a confessional statement.
Arinze, who sells musical instruments at Alaba International Market in Lagos,  was caught with ingested wraps  of methamphetamine, weighing 570 grammes and 1.560kg of the drug packed in his luggage while on his way to Indonesia. He confessed that he was given the drug along Badagry Expressway and was promised $3,000 by his sponsors.
The fourth suspect, Obi, an aluminium fabricator in Umuahia, Abia State,  who was flying to Doha, Qatar, was caught with 5.2kg of cannabis.  Mr. Ofoyeju  stated that all four suspects are under investigation and will be charged to court soon.
Obi also admitted to investigators that he made a mistake getting involved in drug trafficking.  He explained that the bag he was caught with was given to him by a friend for delivery in Doha, but during a search, NDLEA discovered cannabis inside

Mr Ofoyeju explained that if the suspects had been arrested in these China, Indonesia and Qatar, they would have been executed as Drug trafficking is punishable by death in the these countries. 

Reacting on the arrests, the NDLEA Commander at the MMIA, Mr. Ahmadu Garba, said that the agency will continue to ensure that drug couriers are arrested at the country's airports and other points through which they might want to carry out their illicit trade.

The Chief Executive of the NDLEA, Colonel Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah (retd.), expressed worry over the spate of execution of Nigerians abroad for drug trafficking offences and  the number of those on death row.

Colonel Abdallah urged traffickers to see beyond the transient monetary gains of narcotic trafficking and appreciate the fact that they are actually endorsing their own death warrant.

"It is sad that the execution of those caught with drugs in these countries has not deterred them. Many have died prematurely while others are daily counting down to their execution. This development has left their family members and friends in pains," he said.
