This 101 yrs old woman says she will pack her bags and leave the U.S if Donald Trump wins ...photo

A 101-year-old African-American, Mrs Thelma Feastra , said she would pack her bags and leave the U.S. should Republican nominee Donald Trump be elected president on Tuesday.

“I want to get the best people out there to take care of the citizens; so I voted Hillary. I am hoping the election will be alright.

“However, if Trump wins, I guess I will just pack my bags and leave the U.S.,” the centenarian told a correspondent at the Hampton Voter Registrar, the State of Virginia, after casting her vote.

Feastra, a curbside voter, said she was motivated to vote so as to be a part of those who decided who becomes the president of the U.S.

According to her, not being involved could have a consequence on who emerges the president.

“If you don’t vote, you just can’t complain, you just take what you get,” the physically-challenged Clinton supporter, Feastra said.

Also speaking, Feaster’s daughter, Cassandra Williams, who drove her mother to the voting centre, said she had heard complaints about both presidential candidates.

She, however, said that the grievances should not keep people from voting.

“There’s no good choice between Clinton and Trump but there’s a worse choice. This year, you just have bad candidates but one of them will still become the president even if you don’t vote.

“Still, you have a responsibility to come out and vote and get someone who will make our country greater because the country is already great.”

Update! Patience Jonathan attempts to withdraw $5m from frozen account

Sources within EFCC have disclosed that it foiled a fresh attempt by Patience Jonathan to withdraw $5million from her frozen account during the week.

One of the sources said the anti-corruption agency was informed by Skye Bank that Patience had placed a standing order for $5m to be withdrawn from the account but it was stopped.
The detective added, “We received an alert from Skye Bank during the week that Patience attempted to withdraw $5m from her personal account titled Patience Ibifaka Jonathan which is domiciled at the bank. 
“We immediately told the bank not to allow any withdrawal because a ‘No Debit Order’ had been placed on the account.”

Recall that the EFCC had frozen four other company accounts with a balance of $15m. The accounts were linked to a former Special Adviser to Jonathan on Domestic Affairs, Waripamowei Dudafa.

However, during the arraignment of Dudafa and the directors of the companies, Patience filed an application claiming ownership of the money.

She subsequently asked the court to lift the restriction on the accounts.

On Wednesday the directors of the companies pleaded guilty to money laundering. Consequently, the EFCC has applied for the money to be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.

The Federal High Court is expected to deliver judgment on the application, giving the evidences.

The complainant said he met the suspect at a mall and agreed to buy the seeds and paid a part of the amount as advance. The complainant asked the suspect to give him receipt for the payment. The suspect told the victim to accompany him to his office in a neighbouring emirate, but when they reached, he told him the office was closed and would give the receipt next day.

Then the complainant asked the suspect to return his money and the latter gave him an envelope with some money, only for him to discover that the envelope contained fake currency.

During investigation, the team found out that there are four African people promoting different kinds of goods online, including the one who cheated the victim. The suspects were located in an area in Sharjah.

The police raided their apartment and recovered a large amount of stolen cash and fake currency. During the interrogation, the suspects confessed that they promoted goods online to make fake deals. They also used the fake currency for making money doubling deals.
