Update! Why Police raided Patience Jonathan’s mansion in Abuja

Operatives of the Nigeria Police were said to have raided the house of Dame Patience Jonathan, the wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, in Abuja on Wednesday, with the aim of uncovering huge foreign currencies allegedly kept in the building.

Multiple sources familiar with the investigation confided in Punch that the security personnel raided the house on a tip-off that huge amount, allegedly believed to be stolen government money, was kept in the building located at Igbeti Rock, Maitama, Abuja.

The operation, which was carried out by operatives of the Special Investigation Panel, headed by a retired Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Ali Amodu, acted at the behest of the Government Asset Recovery and Forfeiture Committee.

Sources explained that an informant had tipped the Federal Government about alleged huge stolen cash hidden in the building and in three other different locations in the Federal Capital Territory.

It was learnt that the informant, who told the government about the cash in the Maitama property, had hinted that the suspect planned to move the money anytime.

Following the intelligence report, the SIP operatives stormed the duplex on Wednesday, but did not find any cash.

A source explained that the police did not know that the building belonged to Jonathan until she identified herself as a former First Lady to the team leader, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Adebo Williams, on the telephone.

The source stated, “At the house, the security men said the house belonged to one Jaga, a Rivers State indigene, and the team leader was directed to call the owner.

“The security man gave the phone to the team leader and she identified herself as former First Lady.

“She spoke in pidgin English and told the operatives to go and take whatever they kept in the house. The team leader advised her to send her lawyer and she did. The house was searched in the lawyer’s presence.”

It was gathered that the team discovered the first of the twin duplex had not been inhabited for a long time.

The men, it was learnt, found some company documents, three Diamond bank accounts cheque leaves, which were taken away for further investigations.

A source said, “The second duplex was also filled with cobwebs and contained four big security safes. All the four security safes were met opened and in clean condition, indicating that they have been in use [probably the cash have been moved already].

A senior officer said a bulletproof Porsche jeep and a BMW car were found locked up in the garage.

PDP says plot to remove Fayose will consume Buhari’s govt

The Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State has declared that the alleged subterranean moves to impeach Governor Ayo Fayose would lead to the total collapse of the administration of President Muhamadu Buhari, if eventually carried out.

The party said it was reasonable and justifiable that the governor wrote the Acting Chief Justice of the Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, informing him of the alleged moves to co-opt a section of the judiciary to the devilish plot.

Speaking in Ado Ekiti on Thursday, the PDP State Chairman, Gboyega Oguntuase, said:
“Governor Fayose is not just the Governor of Ekiti State, but the opposition voice in Nigeria. He speaks for all the oppressed Nigerians in the Southwest, South East, South-South, North Central and even in the far North.

“Removing Governor Fayose from the power is like removing the whole Ekiti who voted for him in all the 16 local government areas of this state. Any war wage against our governor will be resisted by the people from all these zones.

“Governor Fayose has been the most consistent critic of President Buhari’s government, particularly against the poorly managed economy leading to this recession. So, all Nigerians will rise against this evil plot.

“If you look at the results of the 2014 governorship poll, you would think it was a tsunami because he won in all the 16 local governments. If truly democracy still remains the government of the people, then attempt to remove Governor Fayose will be tantamount to usurpation of the people’s power.”

Fayose had in the letter to the CJN accused former Governor Segun Oni and Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi, of clandestine moves to coerce the judiciary to use Army Panel report to reverse his election victory.

He prayed the CJN to resist the move by preserving democracy and the integrity of the judiciary.

According to Joseph Akelicious who shared the story, when Chinonso was invited to the firm's Awka office to pick up his cheque, he thought everything was just 'story' until the Airtel guys brought out both the dummy and real cheque. Chinonso fainted.

He came back after some minutes...lol.

He said that he is a petty fashion goods trader at Nnewi but that his business has since collapsed. He had prayed to God over the Christmas to give him N10M to start his business again and just like that, the money came via Airtel promo.

Chinonso was accompanied to the Airtel office by his mother and two sisters and said he plans to get married in May, and that he had already planned it before the Airtel windfall.

Update! Oluwo Of Iwo won’t appear in Court

KINGING! There are strong indications that the Oluwo of Iwo-Oke, Oba Kadiri Adeoye may today drop his case against the Oluwo of of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, a first class traditional ruler in the state following the intervention of the governor of the state, Mr Rauf Aregbesola just as Magistrates’s Association of Nigeria, Osun State branch threatened to embark on strike action over the development, Vanguard reports

It was gathered in Osogbo yesterday that Oba Adeoye will move for the discontinuation of the charges preferred against Oba Akanbi when the court resumes hearing of the matter today.

A reliable source in the government circle said that governor Aregbesola during the week directed one of his aides to mediate in the matter towards withdrawing the case from the court.

Oba Akanbi was dragged to the Magistrate Court by the Oluwo of Iwo Oke, Adeoye for allegedly engaging in Internet fraud and being an ex-convict before he was crowned as a traditional ruler, among other accusations.

The Court had on Friday, December 30, 2016 ordered the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fimihan Adeoye to immediately arrest the Oluwo.

The Magistrate had issued a bench warrant for Oluwo’s arrest and also on December 28 2016 ordered the monarch to appear in court on Friday, December, 30, 2016 but the traditional ruler was conspicuously absent when the case came up for hearing.

According to the Magistrate, the case brought before him against the Oluwo of Iwo was a criminal case and by the bench warrant issued by him, “the accused person supposed to have been arrested and kept in prison custody.” But we guess the case will be over now.

Donald Trump kinda threatens Toyota company on Twitter, Toyota responds.

U.S president elect Donald Trump took to his Twitter handle this evening to reveal that he'll impose huge border tax on car production company, Toyota, if they decide to build a manufacturing plant in Mexico rather than the U.S.

According to Trump, Toyota had made plans to start producing Corolla cars in its Mexico plant for the U.S market, something the president elect clearly doesn't like as he hopes to keep up with his 'jobs jobs' mantra.

Just after Donald Trump threatened to impose huge taxation on Toyota if they don't produce cars in the US, Toyota's shares sharply dropped on the US stock market.

The car manufacturing company took their official website and Twitter to reply Trump.


In 2015 Toyota exported more than 160,000 U.S.-built vehicles to 40 countries, helping to establish the U.S. as a global export hub.

• Our manufacturing facilities in Baja, Mexico, established in 2002, support production at our San Antonio, Texas plant, where 3,300 team members produced over 230,000 Tundras and Tacomas in 2016. 

• Recent manufacturing expansions by Toyota in the U.S. include:
◦ $360 million investment in Toyota’s Georgetown, Kentucky plant, adding 750 new jobs
◦ $150 million investment at its Huntsville, Alabama plant
◦ $100 million investment in Toyota’s Princeton, Indiana plant, adding 300 jobs
◦ $90 million investment at its Buffalo, West Virginia plant, adding 80 jobs

Photo of Bank staff, OAU student arrested for N1.2m internet fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibadan Zonal Office has arrested the duo of Timothy Adegbaji Ademiju and Taiye Shittu Habibulahi, a student of Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Ile-Ife, Osun State, for offences bordering on internet fraud and obtaining by false pretence.
Ademiju, 36, a staff of a new generation bank, allegedly struck a deal with a student of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba, Ondo State, one David Olaoluwa Adesubokan, also known as Opinion (now at large), to fleece one Giacomo Rossi, an Italian, of huge sum of money while posing as a lady by name, Grace Thomas.

Ademiju allegedly used his position as the officer in charge of Western Money Transfer to process the fraudulent transactions coming from the Italian to ‘Thomas’.

The arrest followed a petition from the victim alleging that he was contacted on a dating site by one ‘Thomas’ posing to be an American Nursing student from OAU, and was in dire need of financial assistance in form of a loan to complete her studies. The loan which ‘Thomas’ promised to pay back was a decoy to trick Rossi into the fraudulent game.

According to the petitioner, he had offered monetary assistance, paid in tranches, to the tune of €2,400 (Two Thousand Four Hundred Euros) which is equivalent of N1,221,600.00 (One Million, Two Hundred and Twenty One Thousand, Six Hundred Naira) before it dawned on him that it was a scam.

The suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigation into the matter is concluded.
