Donald Trump signs executive order on revised travel ban - Iraq removed from the list

US President, Donald Trump has just signed a new and updated executive order banning immigration from six Muslim-majority countries, notably dropping Iraq from January's previous order.  

The new travel ban comes six weeks after Trump's original executive order was rolled out amid chaos and confusion at airports in the United States and eventually blocked by a federal court. 

The new executive order still temporary bans Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. And it won't take effect till March 16th. And it doesn't affect green card holders and those with valid visas. Hopefully, US federal judges will stop this too.

Sex attacker slashed his throat to avoid going to prison and his plan worked

Lukasz Robert Pawlowski, 33, thought he was at the risk of going to jail for committing sexual assault and to prevent that from happening, he used a three-inch blade, which he smuggled through the toilet, to slit his throat while standing in the dock at the Haverfordwest Magistrates' Court, United Kingdom.

He was airlifted to the hospital following the stunt and was remanded in custody upon his release from the hospital.
Lukasz had been on trial for grabbing a shopkeeper and kissing her on the lips. He had approached the shopkeeper and pointed to his cheeks, asking her to kiss him. Without waiting for his request to be granted or refused, he leaned over the counter, kissed her cheeks then asked for her help. Afterward, he grabbed her and kissed her on the lips. 

The victim, when making a statement said that she was upset by his action and still feels uncomfortable about what happened. Lukasz was sentenced at Swansea Crown Court, UK, on Monday to a three-year community order. 

Judge Paul Thomas told him:
 ‘What you did when you mistakenly thought you were going to prison in fact has landed you in prison where you otherwise would not have been.’ 
Lukasz' lawyer, Jon Tarrant, said both offenses Lukasz had admitted, sexual assault and possession of a bladed article, were committed as a result of ‘misinterpretation’ on his client’s part.

Judge Thomas said both offenses were serious and the knife incident involved a ‘significant’ breach of court security. He revealed that further investigation will be carried out to ascertain how he got into the court with a weapon and other people who let it happen will be punished.
"You caused a great deal of distress to the people who saw what you were doing. That must have been a very unpleasant experience for them."
Lukasz was ordered to take part in a community sex offender treatment programme as part of his community order, plus carry out 80 hours unpaid work and attend a rehabilitation activity requirement for 10 days. He will have to sign the sex offender’s register for five years and was made the subject of a restraining order not to approach the woman.

Omg! Married Reverend Hang Himself Because Of Wife Action

When a leading church minister died in unexplained circumstances on the Isle of Lewis, the close-knit community was in shock.
Tributes to Reverend Dr Iain D Campbell, 53, came from around the world, while shops on the island closed for his funeral.
But it has emerged the father-of-three hanged himself after his 54-year-old wife Anne accused him of having up to seven affairs with churchgoers at the same time.
And now she has called on their church to kick out the women for adultery – even hiring herself a public relations professional.
The Free Church of Scotland, often referred to as the ‘Wee Frees’, is investigating while the accused women are understood to be instructing lawyers to help declare their innocence.
Dr Campbell was a leading light in the church – which has strict teachings on the sanctity of marriage and ethics of suicide – in Stornoway.
The minister had been a senior official in the Free Church and minister of the Point Free Church in Lewis, which is off the Scottish mainland’s north-west coast.
Friends claimed he had long been unhappy. It is also alleged flowers left on his grave have been removed.
A source said: ‘It is said Anne was suspicious about Iain’s activities, and confronted him at the manse [a Scottish vicarage] allegedly after finding compromising emails in his computer trash files.
‘After first taking an overdose, he hanged himself in hospital in Stornoway. He died later in Glasgow.
‘He’s accused – posthumously – of up to seven affairs. All of them full church members.
‘Anne is wanting all this to go in front of a church court and for them to throw them out of the church for adultery.
‘It will cause havoc with their marriages and the entire Free Church.
‘Even though she’s a widow people are saying Iain had a difficult home life and there’s a lot of anger towards her.’

Former Governor Ngilari Jailed For Corruption

A High Court in Yola, Adamawa state has convicted and jailed former Governor Bala James Ngilari for failing to adhere to the procurement laws of the state.

In a 75-minute long ruling, Justice Nathan Musa found the former governor guilty of four charges, and discharged him on one, which bordered on conspiracy.

The judge discharged and acquitted former Secretary to the State Government, and Commissioner of Finance, who were second and third defendants in the case.

In handing down his sentence, the judge said the law stipulated that the convict shall not be given an option of fine.

He sentenced the former governor to five years in prison, and said the convict can serve his term in any prison of his choice.

Ex-Governor Ngilari was first charged on September 21, 2016.

Brother-in-law Admits Slaughtering Entire Family Over Inheritance Row

The relative of a French family of four who have been missing since mid-February has allegedly admitted to killing them. The brother-in-law of a French advertising executive who has been missing along with his wife and two children for two weeks confessed today, local media has reported.

Identified as Hubert C, the 46-year-old said he slaughtered the Troadec family in their detached home in Nantes, western France, during an inheritance row over gold bars.He is believed to have battered them to death with a blunt object, and then tried to cover up the evidence.

Those killed were Pascal and Brigitte Troadec, both 50, their son Sebastien, 21, and daughter Charlotte, 18.

All were last seen on February 16, before their mobile phones went dead and all activity in their bank accounts stopped.

Hubert C was taken into custody on Sunday along with Lydie Troadec - Hubert C's ex-wife and Pascal’s sister.

"The male suspect has admitted killing the entire family in an argument over inheritance," said a source close to the case. "He remains in custody and faces trial for the murders."

An investigation into murder, abduction and illegal confinement was opened last Monday after the authorities were alerted to the disappearance.

Initial suspicion fell on the son, Sebastien, as he was suspected of "formulating a macabre plan aimed at snuffing out members of his family and maybe himself".

Sebastien had psychological problems, and in the past had been convicted of making death threats on his blog.

Bloodstains were found at the Troadec home in Orvault, including on Sebastien’s abandoned smart phone, and his abandoned car was later found more than 100 miles away.

Nantes prosecutor Pierre Sennes said toothbrushes and hairbrushes had all been removed from the house, and the beds had been stripped.

"Food was going off in the fridge and there were dishes in the sink," Mr Sennes said. "It was as if the life of the house had been frozen in time."

Nigerians told to postpone their trips to the US if you have no important business

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has advised Nigerians who have no compelling or urgent reason to travel to the US to postpone their travel plans until the new administration’s policy on immigration is clear. 

In a statement released today by her media aide, Abdurrahman Balogun, Dabiri-Erewa said that the warning became imperative due to series of reports her office has received in recent times .

“In the last few weeks, the office has received a few cases of Nigerians with valid multiple-entry US visas being denied entry and sent back to the Nigeria. In such cases reported to the office, such affected persons were sent back immediately on the next available flight and their visas were cancelled".
Dabiri -Erewa said that “no reasons were given for the decision by the US immigration authorities.” 

The Presidential aide said that the statement “is only to advise Nigerians without any compelling or essential reasons to visit the US to consider rescheduling their trip until there is clarity on the new immigration policy.” 

She however reminded Nigerians in the Diaspora to abide by the rules and regulations of their host countries and be good ambassadors of the country.

South African serial rapist sentenced to 238 years imprisonment

Frank Makgoka Thoka was last week sentenced to a total of 238 years imprisonment for 36 counts of violent crimes which include rape, robbery with aggravating circumstances and sexual assault, in Limpopo, South Africa.
The accused, 30, committed these offences between the years 2008 and 2014 until he was arrested on Jan 24th, 2016 and remained in custody without bail.
He terrorized members of the community, especially young girls and women aged between 14 and 48. He raped these victims between the hours 08:00 in the morning and 23:00 at night.

He was targeting young girls who were coming from school, threatening them with a firearm or knife and dragged them to nearby bushes where he raped and robbed them.

He also entered houses pretending to be a job seeker and ended up attacking the domestic workers, by raping and robbing them.
The South African Police Provincial Commissioner Lt Gen Nneke Jim Ledwaba has welcomed the lengthy jail term given to the serial criminal. He said:
The sentence should serve as a deterrent to all the rapists, the arm of the law is too long and you will also follow Frank Makgoka Thoka to jail unless you stop or refrain from these senseless acts.
He also commended the female investigating officer, Detective Sergt Kwena Shilajwe, attached to the Polokwane FCS Unit, for a job well done.

Donald Trump will sign 'new & improved' U.S travel ban early this week

Image result for images of trump
U.S President Donald Trump, doesn't seem intent on giving up on his immigration travel ban as he is expected to sign a revised executive order early next week that'll prevent immigrants from several Middle Eastern and African countries from entering the United States- Trump's way of cracking down radical Islamic terrorism on American soil.
The new and revised executive order, will cover legal loopholes that existed in the previous temporary immigration ban, which had been overrules by three Federal court judges in the last 1 month, with Homeland security and immigration officials recording massive increase in Immigration during the period.

Speaking to Fox News on Saturday, a top White House official revealed that Trump’s new executive order could come as early as Monday or Tuesday or latest Wednesday.

During Trump's address of Congress last week, he reaffirmed his administration's resolve to pursue extreme vetting of immigrants from terror-related counties.
“The vast majority of individuals convicted of terrorism and terrorism-related offenses since 9/11 came here from outside of our country,” Trump said. 
“It is not compassionate, but reckless to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur.” 
“We cannot allow a beachhead of terrorism to form inside America. And we cannot allow our nation to become a sanctuary for extremists … That is why my administration has been working on improved vetting procedures, and we will shortly take new steps to keep our nation safe.”

Shocking! Read the untold story of Vampire and how he got N20m 48 hours after rescue, paid arms supplier N6m and how his anti-bullet charm failed him

Assistant Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari shared this revealing report with New Telegraph about how deadly kidnapper, Vampire got N20m 48 hours after his rescue, paid arms supplier N6m shortly before his death and how, his 'anti-bullet' charms failed him. Members of his gang, who were arrested admitted to have carried out four successful kidnap operations since their leader was rescued from the Owerri High Court. Some of the kidnap victims were allegedly killed by Vampire. Read the full story after the cut:
There are many versions to the tales surrounding the life and time of Henry Chibueze, known in the underworld as Vampire, but all without exception evokes dread, almost like a clip from a horror movie.

The incidents that marked his rise and fall in the crime world clearly stood him out as very cunning and mortally vicious. Either as the hunter or the hunted, Vampire was an extremely dangerous person to deal with.

Overtly elusive and wily, he had been on the ‘Most Wanted’ list of the Police and the Department of State Services (DSS) since 2013. While the law enforcement agencies were then unable to score any hit on Vampire, they were however able to establish a pattern associated with his operations which aided the DSS in tracking him down and arresting him for the first time in 2015.
Before the arrest, Vampire was just a faceless terror and a bad news in security circles. He had on many occasions beaten the security dragnet of the DSS but this time he had his wings clipped for the first time, or so we thought, by a detachment of combat-ready operatives of the DSS who had trailed him to Disney Hotel, Owerri, Imo State, where his gang was about to kidnap Election Petitions Tribunal Judges.

The kidnap operation was busted by the DSS but Vampire escaped this time, with a bullet wound. Speaking to newsmen at the time in 2015, the then Imo State Director of the DSS, Francis Ejiofor, said that Vampire was eventually arrested after an operation where his victim’s family had to part with N15 million ransom. According to Ejiofor, “Mr. Henry Chibueze known as Vampire, engages in kidnapping from Nigeria to Cotonou, Congo and Ivory Coast.

He is a vicious kidnapper and he kills his victims at the slightest suspicion that security operatives are on his trail. When we learnt that he was in the state and had kidnapped a woman we waited until he had collected the ransom and released the woman and we went after him.
“We traced him to Disney Hotel, Owerri, where he was planning to kidnap the tribunal judges who were lodged there but our men stormed the place and he escaped with gunshot wounds to the home of his native doctor in Ohafia, Abia State, where he was eventually arrested in a pre-dawn raid.” 
The name, ‘Vampire’ according to security sources invokes fear in the hearts of families of victims who have heard gory tales of his blood chilling operations and often part with huge sums of money without informing security agents.
Not a few of his victims believe that the name ‘Vampire’ aptly depicted his huge appetite for bloodletting and violence.Giving dreadful details of his criminal activities in his five years of operation while being paraded, Vampire said that he had lost count of victims he had killed for failure to pay up the ransom or for getting security agents involved.

He particularly recounted how he killed his girlfriend, Sandra, who he said absconded with his N45 million. In his words:
“Yes I shot my girlfriend and everybody in their house because she stole my N45 million which I kept in my house.
I went to her family house in Lagos and when she saw me coming, she ran into the house I went in and shot her and everybody in the room. She died instantly but I don’t know how others died.
“I started kidnapping in the year 2000 and I joined the business because my people did not train me. 
The people that taught me the job have all been killed. I am from a polygamous family in Nwangele Local Government Area of Imo State.”
Vampire, who said he lived in Abidjan “with my wife and daughter”, admitted that his wife didn't know he was a kidnapper.

“My wife still thinks I buy and sell fabrics from Ghana which I was doing when I met her. Under the circumstance, I do not know if she is aware that I have been arrested.”
Vampire was subsequently dumped at the Owerri Prisons from 2015 to 2017 while he was standing trial at the Owerri High Court.
However, on Friday, January 27, this year, Owerri, the state capital, was hit by a massive shockwave which will linger for a long time in the minds of security chiefs in the state, particularly the officials of the Owerri prisons following the humiliation and embarrassment handed to them by Vampire.
In a classical commando style, Vampire on the said day was sprung out of the court premises in broad daylight by gunmen who took the Owerri High Court premises by storm, without as much as a whimper from all the security men and agencies represented at the court premises.
Vampire and about 80 other inmates had been brought to court for the hearing of their cases, but apparently oblivious of the plot afoot, the prison officials walked into a well laid ambush that triggered a massive stampede on the High Court premises. At the end of which, Vampire and eight other inmates escaped and returned to the list of criminals at large.

A few eyewitnesses to the incident  that it was a professionally executed breakout, “It appeared the gunmen were waiting for a cue from Vampire and struck immediately they got it.

Vampire had alighted from the Black Maria and instead of moving, he was deliberately playing heady with prison officials, refusing to move towards the court house. And it seemed that was the signal and the gunmen struck with massive firepower.”
The shooting on the court premises lasted for more than 10 minutes with Judges, lawyers, suspects, police orderlies and all other persons within the court premises scampering for safety. When the dust settled, five prison wardens were on the ground in the pool of their blood, scores of lawyers sustained various degrees of injuries with the court premises littered with wigs and gowns of fleeing lawyers.
Vampire and eight other suspects had vanished into thin air leaving the confused crowd of security men grasping for straws. With what transpired at the Owerri High Court, it is easy to concede that the planning of the attack was quite deft; firepower was superior; while execution and escape were carried out with professional precision.
Considering the circumstances of the escape, many residents were of the view that the security agencies in the state might have taken too many liber-ties with the kingpin to the point of approaching his detention with a careless and worrisome lack of seriousness. It would also be recalled that during a publicised interaction between Governor Rochas Okorocha, security agents and Vampire in 2015 when he was arrested; in reply to a question from Okorocha, the kingpin stressed that he did not want to be released and that it would be a bad idea to set him free under any guise.
He said, “I have killed many people and I am still rearing to go. My blood still dey hot.” In view of the terrifying track record of this crime lord and his unchallenged escape, many easily embraced the idea of a conspiracy theory.
They could not fathom why a criminal with such frightening track record should be conveyed to court with grossly inadequate security. Lawyers in the main observed that the court in question is located within the perimeter of the Imo Government House, next to the Deputy Governor’s Office, and right behind the official quarters of the Commander, 34 Brigade, Obinze, Owerri and the state commissioner of police.
Also disturbing was the complaint of a senior lawyer who disclosed that he called the Police Control room when the court was under attack but the officer who received the call boldly told the lawyer that they did not know the location of the Owerri High Court.
Whereas the court is right behind the official residence of the state commissioner of police. Beyond these, there are serious indications that Vampire was living large in prison and was coordinating kidnap operations from behind the bars.
The testimony of an official of the Owerri Prisons, Agim Chukwuma, 28, who was arrested for working for Vampire from inside prison and helping to organise series of kidnap operations from within the prison walls is a clear affirmation that Vampire was enjoying benefits only kings enjoy in detention. As such, his escape should have been expected.
Chukwuma was not arrested by the police; he was not arrested by the Owerri Prisons authorities but was busted right in Owerri prisons by a team from the Inspector General of Police (IGP’s) Intelligence Response Team (IRT) alongside Joseph Chiaotu alias Ejima, Anozie Chinonso and Uzodimma Chukwudi.
Even after Chukwuma was arrested and the racket revealed, indications suggest that nothing substantial was done to really lock down Vampire who, according to Chukwuma, was receiving his share of proceeds of kidnap operations even while in prison.
Vampire did not just organise kidnap operations from prison; he groomed and initiated young men into his nefarious trade.
If he could turn a prison official into a kidnap operator, prison inmates would have been no match for his cunning and devious mind. His escape as far as Imo residents were concerned was an inexcusable blunder on the part of security agencies in the state; all of whom blamed on the Owerri prison officials.
It was therefore the expectation of Imo people that government should take decisive steps to speedily restore the confidence of the residents of Owerri in the ability and capacity of government to protect them.
The state police command, having shown apparent deficiencies in its capacity to neutralise the operations of high-prized criminals like Vampire were shunted to the background by more efficient special forces from the office of the Inspector General of Police who took over the responsibility to track down the felon and his gang members.

A quiet but intensive manhunt ensued immediately the IGP’s squad took over the operations and on Thursday, 2nd March, 2017, Vampire was gunned down by the Inspector General of Police’s (IGP’s) Special Forces led by the Intelligence Response Team after a gun duel in a forest in Omu Awa community in Ikwerre council area of Rivers State.

The hoodlums who initially resisted and engaged the operatives from the office of the IGP in a gun battle, were later gunned down about 1:00 am on Thursday.

Five of his gang members – Obinna Elah, 26; Arinze Abecheta, 24; Chukwuebuka Ikeazota, 23; Samuel Ugochukwu, 24; and Clifford Aheana – were arrested in the operation while a cache of arms and ammunition were recovered from them.

This is also as impeccable Police sources narrated that intelligence devices deployed during the operations revealed that Vampire had resolved that someday he would be caught but assured his colleagues that it would be at a huge cost to the society.

The vicious gunman had according to credible police sources concluded plans to attack Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State and thereafter attack strategic public places which included the Concorde Hotel Owerri. He had boasted that he would execute his plans as soon as he returned from a strategic trip to India. The killing of Vampire was not a tea party.
It was not without many troubles. It stretched the wits, skills and courage of the special squad. According to one of the operatives of the IGP’s squad who was narrating the rigours of nailing the kidnap kingpin to his colleagues during the parade of the criminals, “Vampire is slippery and devilish. You will never find him sleeping inside the house.

He would always sleep in open spaces outdoors and he will spring awake and alert on the slightest noise, even a distant ringing of the phone. He was always armed clutching an AK-47.
The squad had tracked him to Ehime Mbano, he swiftly moved to Aba, we followed him to Aba but the environment was not too conducive as there were children playing all over the neighbourhood. He didn’t immediately see us but he sensed that he was in danger he escaped but his brother took bullets in his arm.

We came with the best men for the job so we intensified our search and tracked him to a forest in Omu Awa, Ikwerre LGA, laid our ambush but he was at alert. He defiantly engaged our men in a gun battle where he was gunned down.

That deflated his men some of who surrendered and were arrested.” The Force Public Relations Officer CSP Jimoh Moshood who breezed into Owerri immediately after the operation had nothing new to tell the residents except for the ceremonial appearances and acknowledgement of cheers following the successful operation in Rivers State.
In his days, Vampire established himself as a serial killer who had confessed to the murder of over 200 persons in more than 300 successful kidnap and armed robbery operations.

According to statement handed out by the state police command:
“The living members of the gang have made useful statements to the police confessing and admitting to have carried out four successful kidnap operations after the rescue of their gang leader from the Owerri High Court premises on January 27, 2017.”
Some of the kidnap victims who were abducted within this period also, were allegedly killed by Vampire.

Five AK 47 rifles, 300 rounds of AK 47 ammunition and charms found on the body of the deceased gang leader were part of the items recovered from the kidnap gang. Henry Chibueze, Vampire, 30, hailed from Agbaja in Nwangele council area of Imo State. In the underworld, he wrote his name in blood; he lived by the gun and died by the gun.
