Photo of fake soldiers who terrorize, molest and extort Ekiti citizens caught...

The Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps, (NSCDC), Ekiti state command, has paraded four suspected fake soldiers including a serving soldier, who all allegedly engage in terrorizing, molesting and extorting citizens of the state. While the men were being paraded on Friday in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, commandant of the Ekiti corps, Donatus Ikemefuna Explained:

”The suspects were apprehended by its intelligence unit after months of being on their trail. Bashiru Saheed, Ojo Bankole, Olagunju Sola and Oluyemi Olayemi are the four suspected fake soldiers apprehended by men of the NSCDC Ekiti state command, impersonating the Nigerian military”.

Trump agrees to pay $25m in Trump University settlement

Donald J. Trump has reversed course and agreed on Friday to pay $25 million to settle a series of lawsuits stemming from his defunct for-profit education venture, Trump University, finally putting to rest fraud allegations by former students, which have dogged him for years and hampered his presidential campaign.

The settlement was announced by the New York attorney general just 10 days before one of the cases, a federal class-action lawsuit in San Diego, was set to be heard by a jury. The deal averts a potentially embarrassing and highly unusual predicament: a president-elect on trial, and possibly even taking the stand in his own defense, while scrambling to build his incoming administration.

It was a remarkable concession from a real estate mogul who derides legal settlements and has mocked fellow businessmen who agree to them.

But the allegations in the case were highly unpleasant for Mr. Trump: Students paid up to $35,000 in tuition for a programs that, according to the testimony of former Trump University employees, used high-pressure sales tactics and employed unqualified instructors.

The agreement wraps together the outstanding Trump University litigation, including two federal class-action cases in San Diego, and a separate lawsuit by Eric T. Schneiderman, the New York attorney general. The complaints alleged that students were cheated out of thousands of dollars in tuition through deceptive claims about what they would learn and high-pressure sales tactics.

“I am pleased that under the terms of this settlement, every victim will receive restitution and that Donald Trump will pay up to $1 million in penalties to the State of New York for violating state education laws,” Mr. Schneiderman said in a statement. “The victims of Trump University have waited years for today’s result, and I am pleased that their patience — and persistence — will be rewarded by this $25 million settlement.”

The settlement is a significant reversal from Mr. Trump, who had steadfastly rejected the allegations and vowed to fight the lawsuits, asserting that students filled out evaluations showing they were mostly happy with what they had learned in seminars. When political opponents pressed him on the claims during the campaign, Mr. Trump doubled down, saying he would eventually reopen Trump University.

“It’s something I could have settled many times,” Mr. Trump said during a debate in February. “I could settle it right now for very little money, but I don’t want to do it out of principle.”

He added, “The people that took the course all signed — most — many — many signed report cards saying it was fantastic, it was wonderful, it was beautiful.”

The incident happened at Gabriel Bell close, Bamishile Estate in Idimu.

Mrs. Onu was arrested with her daughter, Alice who signed the agreement and handed over the Jeep to Prophet Orimisan after she obtained a token sum of N500,000 in exchange for the vehicle.

The Delta State-born Mary who was a member of the church went to the prophet and told him that she wanted to appreciate him for his prayer to her and her family which had benefited them.

She told him that she wanted to sow a seed offering with the Infiniti model QX56 which the market value is over N2 million.

She asked the Prophet to pay only N500,000 as a token and, because he thought it was a sincere gift from his church member, he paid the money into her account.

It was then that the Prophet realized that Madam Mary have scammed him as the owner explained what transpired between both of them before the vehicle was brought to the church.

The matter was reported to the police who trailed Madam Mary and her daughter, Alice for several weeks and later arrested them at their hide.

At the station, Madam Mary confessed to the crime but claimed she had already spent the money to solve her personal problem.

Both mother and daughter were charged before a Magistrate’s court sitting in Isolo on Thursday with conspiracy, obtaining under false pretence and stealing under the Criminal Code.

Funny enough, they pleaded not guilty.
The presiding Magistrate, Mrs A.K. Shonubi granted them bail in the sum of N200,000 with one sureties in like sum.

Mother and daughter were remanded in prison pending when they will perfect their bail condition.

The matter was adjourned till 24 November, 2016, for trial.

Shocking confession of a robbers' informant...photo

The police have arrested an eight-man gang of armed robbers said to be terrorising Abuja, Kogi and Kano states. Among them is Rekia Musa, a divorcee and Accounting graduate of the Kogi State University, who told the police that she had only been an informant for the gang for four months.

The police said the gang had links with a suspect, Zakeria Isiaka arrested recently by the Inspector-General of Police Response Team,  along the Okene-Akure Expressway. It would be recalled that on November 5, Saturday Punch had reported Isiaka’s claim that he could have become the Chief Security Officer of Kogi State if the late All Progressives Congress candidate in the governorship election in Kogi State, Abubakar Audu, had not die.

Others arrested along with Musa are Ismaila Abdulmumuni, Abu-Amidu Disu, Tenimu  Musa, Boniface David, Aliu Isah and Danjuma Cyprian.

A police source told Saturday Punch that the suspects confessed to have carried out several robbery operations, including an April 2015 operation in Abuja where about N200m was stolen from some politicians.

In her statement, Musa, popularly called Hajia, explained that about four months ago, one of her friends, Isha Mohammed, approached her and said he knew some politicians who had stolen public money and hidden them in their houses.

She said, “He asked if I could help him to get a charm that would make it possible for him to disappear, called Etubi. He said if he could disappear into the politician’s house and steal the money unnoticed, he would give me a large cut of the money.

“I then travelled to my village in Agba Local Government Area of Kogi State and met a boy called Tenimu. I told him about the plan and he promised that he could get the charm.

“But instead, Tenimu told his friends about the money. The friends were armed robbers. They then came and tricked me into taking them to the politician’s house in Kano State.”

According to Musa, when the gang got to the house in Kano, they were discouraged by the heavy presence of policemen and went back home.

However, she said she became upset because the plan did not fall through.

“I thought targetting politicians who have stolen government money was a good idea because I was broke. Few days later, Isah got another piece of information about an immigration officer based in Lagos, who had stolen government money.

“I contacted my gang and we went to the man’s house and robbed him. But we didn’t get as much money as Isah told us the man had at home.”
Police sources said the suspects came on the radar of security agents after robbing the immigration officer, a comptroller in the service.

Musa, AKA Hajia, also allegedly went around town to scout for victims for the gang before her arrest.

Twenty-five-year-old Mohammed, who brought the information about the immigration officer to the gang,  explained that it was the only operation he ever went with the gang.

The suspect, also a Kogi State indigene, explained the he was a fashion designer with a shop in Bwari area of Abuja.

He said, “It was the bad friends I met in Abuja that led me into armed robbery.  There was this customer, Ismaila, whom I made clothes for. He was the first person who told me about the money the politicians usually brought to his office at Mabuchi area of Abuja.

“He said the politicians shared the money there and he said he could rob them. I then told him about one of my customers, Dan, who normally wore a charm around his waist. I told him he could take part in the robbery.

“I also told another friend, Ismaila (Abdulmumuni). When I informed Dan about the money and the plan to rob the politicians, he said we should hold a meeting along the Duste Expressway in Abuja. He also brought some of his friends and Dan asked that we should go to the place.

“After a while, Dan said we might need guns for the robbery and that the politicians might have some powerful charms.”

Mohammed said on the day the politicians came again to share money at the location, the gang was immediately alerted by Abdulmumuni. The gang stormed the place and robbed the politicians of over N200m.

Mohammed said, “After the operation, Dan called and gave me N4.5m, which he said I should share with Ismalia. But I later learnt that we actually got more than  N200m from the robbery. Dan alone got N25m.”
