Shocking! 17-year-old boy pleads guilty in plot to assassinate the Pope

A New Jersey teen has pleaded guilty to a plot allegedly inspired by the Islamic State group to kill Pope Francis in 2015, during a public Mass in Philadelphia, US.

The suspect, Santos Colon, admitted on Monday in a federal court in Camden that he attempted to conspire with a sniper to shoot the Pope during his visit to Philadelphia and set off explosive devices in the surrounding areas.
According to the US Justice Department, Santos Colon, 15 years old at the time, sought to recruit a sniper to shoot the pope as he celebrated mass in Philadelphia on September 27, 2015. Colon also allegedly planned to set off explosives.

The US citizen from Lindenwold, New Jersey, was charged as an adult with one count of attempting to provide material support to terrorists on Monday and faces up to 15 years in prison.

He also faces a fine of $250,000, or twice the amount of any financial gain or loss from the offense, prosecutors said. 

However, no date has been set for sentencing and the investigation is ongoing.

My Father Warned Me Not To Get Involved In Online Crime – Arrested Yahoo Boy

Chukwuemeka Egbemude, one of the four suspects arrested by the operatives of Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos State Police Command for tricking expensive phone sellers to desolate locations and robbing them afterwards, has disclosed that his father warned him not to use his house as a base for cyber crime.

22yrs old Chukwuemeka, a 200 level drop out of North American University, Benin Republic, was arrested last Wednesday in company of three others, who were fingered in the shooting of a police officer, who attempted to arrest them in one of their botched robbery operations.

The gang leader, Wilfred Ehis, a Chemical Engineering graduate of University of Benin, had in his confessional statement to police said his task as leader of the group was to source for expensive phone sellers on online platforms, pose as a lawyer, order for expensive phones and accessories before waylaying the delivery man and rob him of the consignment at a designated location.

On his part, Chukwuemeka confessed that all he did since dropping out of school was to pick fraud items for online fraudsters as well as put Ehis through on how to carry out online fraud.

He said he had been lodging from one hotel to the other along with Ehis around LASU/Igando area as his father barred he and his elder brother from using his residence as centre for online fraud.

According to him, “I dropped out of school not because I wasn’t brilliant but for my inability to pay my school fees. And, since I returned to Nigeria, I started online fraud and picking fraud items for online fraudsters in and out of Nigeria.”

The first picking job was for myself in 2016. Later, I did a job for a “yahoo boy” which fetched me $400. I have been into online fraud before I entered school in 2011.”

He continued, “I have done a lot of transaction for boys including those that involved me travelling out of the country. Everybody in the neighbourhood (Afolabi Bus Stop, LASU–Isheri Road) knows the kind of job that I do.

I also help “yahoo boys” to pick money, expensive wristwatches and rings. I go to bank to pick up the money for them and I get my 10% or 15% commission on every transaction. I have helped more than 50 boys doing that kind of transaction”.

“My father got to know that I was into online fraud because he sees me carrying laptops and heard me whenever I make calls to my victims and trying to sound like an American.

"He called me and told me point blank that, I should never in my life use his residence for such business. Since 2015, I have been moving with Ehis, lodging from one hotel to the other.”

Sources disclosed that apart from being a very close associate of the ring leader of the gang, Chukwuemeka is always with Ehis all the time and he had dealings with Nurudeen, alias Onyaebo, the notorious hit man of the group.

According to Wilfred Ehis, Nurudeen has the two guns used by the gang for their operations, and that he sneaked into Lagos through the creeks of Ogun whenever they have operations.

Two of the five victims of the group’s robbery, who identified themselves as Oluwaseyi Sanwo Sunday and Alabede Habib said that the group used okada for their operations with two guns.
They added that Iyana School Bus Stop, along LASU–Iba Road in Lagos have been areas where they lured three of them to before dispossessing them of those consignments, which Ehis posing as Barrister Deji ordered for.

The suspect with the gang leader, Wilfred Ehis and two others, Bright Eloho, 24 and Olanrewaju Kamilu, 33 has been transferred to Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Lagos for further investigations.

The duo had earlier been arraigned on two different occasions before Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo of the Federal High Court in Lagos on 40 counts.

In the amended charges, the police introduced the names of three other persons as defendants to the case.

The defendants,  whose names were added to the charges are Lawal Kareem, Olalekan Yusuf and Muyideen Shoyombo.

The defendants were accused of swindling no fewer than 30 Bureau De Change operators in Lagos of various sums both in local and foreign currencies between 2015 and 2017.

The police alleged that the defendants defrauded the BDC operators mostly by falsely representing to the victims that they had foreign currencies to sell to or buy from the BDC operators.

The police alleged, for instance, that on February 2, 2017, Egbegbe and his co-defendants fraudulently obtained the sums of N2.45m and £,3,000 from one Alhaji Isa Adamu in Lagos under the guise that they wanted to see the naira and buy the pounds.

Among the other victims of the alleged frauds by Egbegbe are  Mohammed Sanni, who was allegedly defrauded of N2.46m on 2017 New Year’s  Day; Jubrila Ado, allegedly defrauded of N1.257m on September 9, 2016; Hassan Amodu, allegedly defrauded of N600,000 in January 2016; Sanni Hassan,  allegedly defrauded off N1.43 and £2,750 in August 2015; Saidi Abdullahi, allegedly defrauded of N700,000 on April 18, 2016; Atairu Abdullahi,  allegedly defrauded of N1m on June 23, 2016; and Abdullahi Babadisa, allegedly defrauded of N650,000 in January 2016.

The police prosecutor, Mr. Innocent Anyigor, told the court that Egbegbe and the others acted contrary to Section 8 of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act 2006 and were liable to be punished under Section 1(3) of the same.

But when the charges were read to them on Monday, they all pleaded not guilty.

Justice Oguntoyinbo adjourned till April 26 for further proceedings in the case.

Wow! 11yr old African descent, British boy is the country's youngest ever orchestra conductor

Matthew Smith may be a pint-sized 11yr old but don't judge him by his stature, the kid is a legend in the making. He became Britain's youngest ever orchestra conductor leading a 75-strong orchestra through a faultless rendition of the overture to Johann Strauss II’s Die Fledermaus. What's more, he conducted the nine-minute piece entirely from memory and wasn't fazed by the 1,300 crowd at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham. Proud mum, Beverlyn Riley, 40 was all smiles as she watched her son.

His genius was unlocked four years ago when he saw two violinists performing at the Pentecostal church he attends with his mother and told her that he wanted to be ‘just like them’. Mrs Riley who works as a catering assistant at Nottingham High School, approached the school’s senior string teacher Derek Williams who set Matthew up with an old violin.
Instinctively, Matthew placed his fingers in the correct place on the instrument and a star was born. 

Mr Williams said that Matthew had ‘music coming out of his pores’. He said the boy had ‘an inherent natural ability the like of which I have not seen for 30 years’.
Mrs Riley, who is divorced from Matthew’s father Cordova Smith and has since remarried, said that she had no idea where Matthew gets his musical ability from, although his father does play the saxophone.
She added: ‘I’m so proud of what Matthew has done.’

See the asylum seeker who raped two elderly men in care home and murders the wife of one victim in Germany

An 18 year old Somalian asylum seeker has been charged with raping two disabled men in a care home and murdering one of their wives in Germany. The assailant is said to have broken into the home in the county of Betheim late last year and sneaked into the room of a paralysed 59-year-old man to rape him.

German police say he was engaged in sexually abusing the second man when he was disturbed by his wife and killed her using 'great force' to avoid being caught for his previous crimes.

The migrant was discovered by a janitor who was doing his rounds at about 3.30am when he noticed a figure in one of the hallways. He suspected it was a burglar, and confronted the man. The 18-year-old ran past and jumped out of a window before escaping.
Police were already on their way to the care home after the janitor called the emergency services thinking there had been a burglary but when he found blood splatters along the corridors, he alerted officers. As police officers and nurses went room-to-room, they eventually found the two male victims and the woman lying in a pool of blood. The suspect was apprehended at his home shortly afterwards and police found damp trainers in his wardrobe. The accused is currently being held in custody in a psychiatric hospital pending trial.
