With Prince Philip stepping down from royal duties in the autumn, the Queen needs someone new to help her during public engagements.

And now that the Queen has handpicked her next equerry, one of the most important roles in the royal household, he's likely to be the one by her side.

The newly appointed Mayor Nana Kofi Twumasi-Ankrah's role will include attending to the Queen in public, assisting her during official engagements and welcoming high-profile guests to royal residences.

He's expected to begin the role later in the year, with the timing meaning that he's tipped to become the most visible man by the Queen's side during her public appearances.

Twumasi-Ankrah, who is known as TA to his friends, is thought to be the first black equerry appointed by the royal family.

The Afghanistan war veteran was born in Ghana and moved to the UK in 1982. He studied at Queen Mary University of London and the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst before joining the Blues and Royals. He then became the first black British Army officer to be commissioned into the Household Cavalry.

Olaolu Akorede, was arrested by police from Area J command in Ajah, he claimed to be a film producer, for allegedly obtaining harmful herbal liquid from a native doctor, for his lover to drink for the treatment of diabetes which later allegedly caused the death of the unborn baby in her womb and damaged her Fallopian tube, according to doctors’ report.
The arrest of the 28-year-old suspect was ordered by the Area Commander in charge of Area J Command following a petition by the victim, Halimat, through her counsel in the Chamber of Bislaw Legal Practitioners, PM News reported.

Narrating her ordeal in the hands of the suspect to the police, Halimat said:
“I met the suspect in New York, United States of America in November 2016 while we were both on vacation and we began  a relationship.
“When I came back to Nigeria, I noticed that I was pregnant and I called the suspect, who was still in the USA about the development and he was very happy on the phone. He begged me to keep the pregnancy till he comes back to Nigeria for us to wed. He requested for a return ticket to come back to Nigeria and I used N400,000.00 to purchase a return ticket for him.
“When he came back to Nigeria, he collected the sum of N2.5 million from me to organize our wedding but instead, he went to Abeokuta, Ogun State, to meet a native doctor who prepared a herbal liquid for him which he claimed was for treatment of diabetes. He convinced me to drink from the liquid and because I did not suspect anything, I drank from it, unknown to me that it was to abort my pregnancy or kill me.
“And after drinking the liquid, I began stooling blood and ended up in the hospital. Doctors later performed surgery on me and discovered that the herbal liquid had killed my unborn baby in my womb and affected my Fallopian tube. I am now appealing to the police to assist me to get justice” Halima stated.
In his defense, Akorede denied almost all the allegations made by the complainant but admitted that he procured herbal liquid for her to treat her diabetes.

Akorede was recently arraigned before an Igbosere Magistrate Court on four-count charge of obtaining N2.5 million under false pretense, procuring unknown herbal liquid for Halimat to terminate her pregnancy and maliciously administering poison on Halimat which caused the death of unborn baby in her womb.

Police prosecutor, Inspector Okete Ejima, told the court in charge No. S/25/2017 that the accused intentionally procured the harmful liquid for the complainant to kill her and the unborn child.

He said the offences the accused committed were punishable under sections 314, 147, 243 and 216 of the criminal laws of Lagos State, 2015.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty the Magistrate, Mrs. O. O. Otitoju granted him bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

The case was adjourned until 12th of  July, 2017 for mention while the defendant is being remanded at  the Ikoyi Prison, Lagos pending when he would be able to fulfill his bail conditions.

According to the Guinness World Records, Pierre and Paul Langerock of Belgium who currently hold the record for oldest living male twins turned 104 on Saturday. The brothers have lived together most of their lives and both made a living as court magistrates.
They currently still share a room at a nursing room just outside of the Belgian city of Ghent.They both remained unmarried throughout their lives "because they always disapproved of each other’s potential partners".

They have less than two years to go before they can clinch the world record for the oldest male twins. Glen and Dale Moyer, of the U.S., currently hold the record, who each were alive for at least 105 years before Glen passed away.

The overall world record for oldest twins ever is held by sisters Kin Narita and Gin Kanie, of Japan, who each lived to be at least 107 before Kin's death in 2000.

Nigerian woman kills American husband just to get his Insurance money

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
A newlywed Nigerian woman, 45 year old Uloma Curry-Walker, who was accused of soliciting her firefighter husband's murder in order to collect $100,000 in insurance money has been convicted of aggravated murder. As God will have it, she wasted her husband's life for nothing because his ex-wife was still the beneficiary of his Insurance policy.
Uloma could receive life in prison without parole for the November 2013 murder of her late William Walker, whom she had married just four months prior.

William Walker
Jurors deliberated for less than two hours before coming back with the verdict Friday,

Prosecutors said Uloma was way over her head after running up tens of thousands of dollars in debt when she asked her then-17-year-old daughter and her daughter's boyfriend to find someone to kill her husband so she could collect the insurance money.

According to court testimony, Uloma  gave the boyfriend, Chad Padgett, a $1,000 down payment to carry out the murder.  Padgett then contacted his cousin Chris Hein, who initially failed in his attempt to kill Walker.  Hein then turned to Ryan Dorty to carry out the murder.

Prosecutors said Dorty ambushed Walker and shot him four times as he returned home from getting fast food that Uloma had ordered.
She and her husband were packing the night he was killed for a move to a house they had purchased outside Cleveland.

Chad Padgett
The daughter, Padgett, Hein and Dorty testified against Uloma at trial as part of plea deal for their roles in the murder conspiracy.  Hein agreed to a sentence of 18 years to life; Padgett 28 years to life; and Dorty 23 years to life.  Prosecutors agreed not to seek adult charges against Uloma's 17 year old daughter due to her age. They only sentenced her to a month in a juvenile detention center.

Chris Hein
The daughter testified at trial that her mother told her:
'No one would believe I would hire a bunch of kids to kill someone when I know people that could.' Uloma wrote a confession the day she surrendered to police that said she killed her husband because he was abusive.
Ryan Dorty 
But a police investigation found that Uloma's plan to collect the Insurance money was futile because her late husband had not yet changed the beneficiary on the insurance policy from his ex-wife's name to Uloma's when he was killed, so it was the ex-wife who received the money, she so desperately wanted.

Sentencing for Uloma is scheduled for Aug. 8.
