‘EFCC Has Frozen My Zenith Bank Account’ – Fayose Cries Out

Featured Image

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has on Monday accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of freezing his personal account at Zenith Bank.

The governor raised the alarm on his Twitter handle, even as he blamed President Muhammadu Buhari for the restriction on his account.

“My personal Account at Zenith Bank has been frozen courtesy of Buhari led APC tyrannical government.”

A bank source, who pleaded not to be mentioned in print, disclosed that Fayose was apparently shocked when he was told that his account was allegedly frozen on the order of the anti-graft agency.

Vanguard quoted the governor as saying, that he had earlier issued a counter-cheque to make withdrawal and was rejected by the bank located at Onigari, GRA in Ado Ekiti, describing the action as criminal and illegal.

Attempts to reach to the spokesman of the anti-graft agency, Wilson Uwujaren, for confirmation to the claim, proved abortive.

Fayose had earlier raised an alarm that the federal government had concluded the alleged plans to use the anti-graft agency to destabilise Ekiti with the aim of impeaching him.

Pedro Apologises For Outburst Over Lack Of Playing Time At The Euros

Featured Image

Pedro has apologised for his earlier outburst over lack of playing time at the Euro 2016. After stating he was considering leaving France.

Pedro Not Happy With Bench Role At Euro 2016

The former Barcelona forward had a cameo appearance in the 1-0 win over Czech Republic. But was unused in the 3-0 thumping of Turkey, with Silva and Nolito preferred on the wings by Del Bosque.

The Spain international said he had other expectations when called up for international duty. Expressing a desire to leave, if he remains unused.

However, at a later press conference, he played a different tune for the media.

“I apologise if I offended someone with my comments. I am delighted to be here with Spain. It is a dream to be at the Euros,” Pedro said.

“I have clarified things with my team-mates and they understood what I meant. I have spoken with Del Bosque and with my team-mates. They all understand me. I am very grateful to have their confidence.

“It is clear that I would like to play more, just like everyone would like to play.

“But I can only repeat that I am delighted to be here. I have explained everything to the coach and to the rest of the team. I apologise if I caused problems.”

The 28-year-old was expected to get the chance to prove his worth in Spain’s final Group D game against Croatia as they have already booked their ticket for the knockout stages, but his outburst could very well cost him a place in the starting XI on Tuesday.

The Ideal Husband actor who is gay advised parents with children who were already questioning their sexuality or struggling with their identity to have reservations before choosing hormone therapy or sex change options for their children as ‘children should be able to embrace the “ambivalence” of their gender without resorting to medical procedures.’

Rupert Everett says Caitlyn Jenner doesn’t know what being transexual entails

“It’s nice to be allowed to express yourself, but the hormone thing, very young, is a big step,” he said. “I think a lot of children have an ambivalence when they’re very young to what sex they are or what they feel about everyone. And there should be a way of embracing it,” Rupert said.

“I really wanted to be a girl. Thank God the world of now wasn’t then because I’d be on hormones and I’d be a woman. After I was 15 I never wanted to be a woman again,” the Three Musketeers actor said.

Kanu Wears ‘I Love Biafra’ Bracelet To Court | His Lawyer Threatens To Withdraw From Case

The embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, was on Monday, arraigned along two others at the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Upon his arrival at the premises of the court, Kanu, the Director of Radio Biafra, was spotted ‘unapologetically’ wearing a bracelet on his right hand with the inscription ‘I love Biafra’.

He is standing trial on six counts of treasonable felony charges along with Benjamin Madubgwu and James Nwawuisi.

It was gathered that the trial of one of the leaders of a pro-Biafran movement accused of treason failed to begin due to a motion filed by ‎the defence.

The three defendants have been represented by lead counsel Chuks Muoma, but during a hearing before Justice John Tsoho of the Court, today, Muoma claimed a new lawyer had been introduced to represent Madubgwu without his knowledge.

A mild drama started when Muoma accused his clients of judicial misconduct, and threatened to withdraw from the case.

“My lord I am the lead counsel in this matter and courtesy demands that the introduction of a new counsel should be made with my consent,” Mr. Muoma told Justice Tsoho.

“I am a very busy counsel. I am not chasing the priest, the priest is chasing me. If this counsel had come in to be lead counsel, it will be a different case, but he is coming to take away one of my clients. Until these clarifications are made, my further appearance is forestalled.

“I cannot do the wrong thing after almost 45 years at the bar. My conscience cannot allow me to pretend.”

He also told the court to adjourn the trial to allow the new lawyer, Amobi Nzelo, to study the documents relating to the ongoing trial.

In a swift reply, the new counsel, Amoebi Nzelu, representing the second defendant, said:

“Only yesterday at Kuje prison, I was called upon to represent one of the clients.”

“The records are there. I tried to reach one of the counsels by name Ifeanyi Ejiofor, who told me this morning that he was aware of the development, since I did not have the number of the lead counsel.

“The SAN and I are from the same LGA, Orifite in Anambra State. In Orifite. He is the eldest in this profession, and followed by another person, and myself.

“I am not struggling to take your position. I cannot struggle with my elder brother. I am the third in command, in Orifite, while he is the first in command.”

Nzelu also argued that in criminal matters, the law allows a defendant to choose his counsel.

Reacting to Mr. Nzelu’s comments, Mr. Muoma said, “I m not blaming Amoebi Nzelu. I am blaming my clients, you should have informed your counsel. Let me know how your minds are working.”

Meanwhile, Tsoho adjourned the trial to 26 September.

Medical practitioners under the aegis of the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) in federal teaching hospitals have embarked on an indefinite strike over the non payment of 10 months salaries of some of its members.

READ ALSO: Resident Doctors To Commence Nationwide Strike On June 9

Speaking to pressmen in Osogbo on Monday morning, the President of the Obafemi Awolowo University chapter of the association, Dr. Wole Ayegbusi, said:

 “We have started an indefinite strike this morning to drive home our demands.

“The most saddening part of it is that our members in the state teaching hospitals have not been paid for 10 months‎ and these are some of the members that are rendering essential services.

“We need to realise that, we cannot be comparing doctors to other civil servants because if they(civil servants) fall sick and doctors are not well paid, they will never be well attended to.

“You will be surprised that today, some federal teaching hospitals have not paid December salaries, which is unfair because it affects our productivity.

“Also some of our members have been sacked for an unjust cause and several times we have made efforts to dialogue with the Federal Ministry of Health but maybe due to their selfish reason or incompetence, we have not been able to actualise that.

“Most of the community people are poor and they cannot travel abroad to get treatment.”

Cameron Okoye Reveals His Account Balance

Speaking to Punch, Mr. P revealed how becoming a father curbed his excessive lifestyle, and Cameron also revealed a couple of things about himself. Excerpts from the interview below!

READ: Peter Okoye Signs Endorsement Deal With KIA Motors

How has fatherhood impacted you?
Peter: Fatherhood has taught me to be selfless and always consider my children first in whatever I do. In the past, I spent a fortune on pricey wristwatches and exotic cars. Today, my children come first. I spend wisely and preserve myself for them because they are my future.

How do you spend quality time with your kids?
Peter: Whenever I am in town, I take them out to play and buy ice-cream. Sometimes, we eat out at their favourite eatery.We also go swimming on Sundays; we have a pool in our home but we prefer to go swimming elsewhere. It’s sad that sometimes when they travel for summer holidays, I am not usually around because summer is a busy period for us. So, if they will be away for two weeks and I’m free for two days in between, I join them and then I go back to work.

Is there anything you wish to do better as a father?
Peter: I wish that I had my children earlier; I was with their mum for years before we got married. I even had them before we got married. If I had them a long time ago, we would relate more like siblings. If they were teenagers for instance, they would know that their dad is a celebrity and can learn certain things on their own.

What do you love most about your dad?
Cameron: I love his music, the way he teaches and corrects me when I do anything wrong. My dad teaches me everything I need to know and he is also my best friend.

Would you also like to be a musician?
Cameron: No. I would rather be a footballer because I feel I was born to play football. I’m a bit confused sometimes about my favourite football club. But, my favourite football players are Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, because they are the best players in the world;they have a lot of skills.

If you could buy something for your dad, what would it be?
Cameron: I wouldn’t buy him anything. I will give him money; I’ll give him N19, 000 because that is all the money I have. I don’t mind giving him all of it because he deserves it.

Naira Plunges To 260 Against US Dollar At Interbank Market

Featured Image

The naira on Monday plunged to 264 against the United States dollar at the interbank market, in spite of the decision by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to scrap its fixed exchange rate and allow market forces to determine the value of the local currency.

It was gathered that at the commencement of the new foreign exchange regime, the naira started at N253 to a dollar.

Bloomberg reports that at about 11:02am on Monday, the naira had moved to 264 to the dollar at the inter-bank market, with dealers expressing extreme caution in proceeding with transactions.

Minutes later, the naira came to 260, which was the initial predicted position the CBN-FMDQ OTC guideline was planned to work with.

Several analysts have predicted that the naira may settle around 250, compared with 350 to the greenback on the black market.

Nigeria had pegged the naira to the dollar at 197-199 since March 2015, even as other oil exporters have let their currencies devalue in the wake of plunging global crude prices.

President Muhammadu Buhari also had previously said he would not “murder the naira” by letting it devalue.
However, last week, the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, said that the currency market would now be “purely market driven” as the country grapples with spiralling inflation, slowing growth, the weakening naira and foreign exchange shortages.

Paul Pogba In Talks With Real Madrid Over Potential World Record Transfer Deal

Featured Image

Paul Pogba’s agent has confirmed that he has begun talks with Real Madrid about a potential world record summer transfer.

The Juventus star – who is contracted to the Italian club until the summer of 2019 – is in his homeland playing for France at Euro 2016. But his agent Mino Raiola says he is in contact with three clubs interested in signing the midfielder – and confirmed European champions Real are one of them.

image

Raiola told Spanish paper Marca: “We are talking (with Real) but nothing is decided. [Real coach] Zinedine Zidane’s wish is important. The club’s wish is important.

“We are in the initial phase. It’s not a negotiation. Both sides know what it wants and we shall see if we complete a deal or it ends in divorce.”

“Paul dreams of winning the Ballon d’Or…Real Madrid is a fantastic club to achieve that.

image

“He admires Zidane. He has always told me that. This is going to be very important in his decision.

“However, he needs to choose a project, not a coach, as coaches come and go. Pogba’s interest is not in being the most expensive signing and neither is it mine.

“The aim is for him to join the best sporting project and win as many titles as possible. We are talking with three teams and Paul likes the sporting projects of some of those.”

image

Pogba made 48 appearances in all competitions for Juve this past season, helping the club clinch a Serie A and Coppa Italia double.

“He wouldn’t have a problem staying at Juventus,” Raiola said. “He is very happy there. Paul chooses his future as it’s the logical thing.”

Pedro Not Happy With Bench Role At Euro 2016

Featured Image

Pedro has revealed his displeasure at the insignificant role he has played for Spain at the Euros.

The Chelsea man came off the bench in the 1-0 win over Czech Republic, in La Roja’s opening match. And was an unused substitute in the 3-0 win over Turkey.

The former Barcelona forward has made his frustration known. It is left to see how Vicente del Bosque will react.

“I had other expectations when I arrived here. It is not what I wanted,” the former Barcelona player told Zero.

“To assume this role is difficult. If you don’t see continuity, coming here to stay with the group is no longer worth it.

“I think situations get to that point where you have to make a decision. That happens to everyone in football.

“I’ll think, I will meditate. Now is not the best time to talk, out of respect for my team-mates and my coach, who has always trusted me. I have to think.”

Zoe Saldana Finally Addresses Nina Simone Biopic Controversy

Featured Image

Zoe Saldana has come under fire for her role in Nina Simone’s biopic, Nina, which was released with critics passing judgments – from she was too light skinned and pretty for the role, to Simone’s estate slashing her to ‘never mention the singer’s name ever again’.

Those vitriols obviously didn’t affect the actress. “The fact that we’re talking about her, that Nina Simone is trending? We fucking won,” Saldana exclaimed excitedly in her Allure interview, while dishing on the ups and downs she had to go through in portrayal of her character.

“For so many years, nobody knew who the fuck she was. She is essential to our American history. As a woman first, and only then as everything else.”

Zoe Saldana “We Fucking Won”

Regards being too light skinned to play a black role, Saldana responded, “There’s no one way to be black. I’m black the way I know how to be. You have no idea who I am. I am black. I’m raising black men. Don’t you ever think you can look at me and address me with such disdain.”

“I never saw her as unattractive. Nina looks like half my family!” Zoe Saldana defended the idea she was too pretty to play Simone,“But if you think the [prosthetic] nose I wore was unattractive, then maybe you need to ask yourself, What do you consider beautiful? Do you consider a thinner nose beautiful, so the wider you get, the more insulted you become?”

The last five years has followed Saldana like a bread to butter since she first had her initial casting in 2012 to the first trailer on YouTube to the quiet, no-fanfare release of the film in April.

She has also seen her fair share of social media hatred for having the audacity to play the dark-skinned, highly political singer.

One time she shared a tweet from Simone, and the singer’s estate tweeted, “Cool story but please take Nina’s name out of your mouth. For the rest of your life.” Harsh.

Zoe Saldana was warned by Simone’s estate to never mention the singer’s name

Saldana’s driving force for taking the role after rejecting it for a year was due to the fact that female black stories weren’t relevant enough.

“The script probably would still be lying around, going from office to office, agency to agency, and nobody would have done it. Female stories aren’t relevant enough, especially a black female story,” Zoe Saldana said.

“I made a choice. Do I continue passing on the script and hope that the ‘right’ black person will do it, or do I say, ‘You know what? Whatever consequences this may bring about, my casting is nothing in comparison to the fact that this story must be told.’”

MISSY, Supa Dupa Fly From the moment I heard, The Rain, back in 1997, I was entranced by the genius rhythms and brilliant rhymes of Missy Elliott. Missy’s music has kept me and my design team happily energized through countless weekdays, weeknights and weekends during those long hours of sketching, fitting, styling and doing looks. In addition to the boundless energy of her music are the visually pulsating and wildly cartoon-like music videos she made in collaboration with the talented and visionary, Hype Williams.

Missy Elliott isn’t the only one giving Marc Jacob Inspiration. The campaign was alongside 66 year old American actress and singer, Sissy Spacek. The campaign is a continuation of the brand’s portrait series from their Spring 2015 ad campaigns which featured other celebrities like Cher, Kendal Jenner and Miley Cyrus in Spring 2014.

 

In a continuing series of portraits for our Fall 2016 ad campaign, the individuals in these photographs represent a collective embodiment of love, honesty, integrity, courage, strength, curiosity and inspiration. Together, as one story, this collection is a reminder to question and challenge normal and to continue exploring and pushing boundaries. To quote Lana Wachowski, “I am suspicious of everything connected to that word [normal]. It is, to my thinking, a politically correct euphemism for obedience and conformity.” GENESIS P-ORRIDGE, Unconditional Love Through music, poetry and art, Genesis continues to explore, shape shift and define what it means to give love, be loved and live love. For me, Genesis is a sort of come-to-life definition of realness and authenticity and how being lost in an experience or new idea can result in growth and evolution. @pandrogyne Photographed by David Sims and styled by Katie Grand.

59 Persons Feared Dead As Suspected Fulani Herdsmen Attack Benue Communities

Featured Image

A traditional ruler was among 59 persons that were reportedly killed following renewed attack from suspected Fulani herdsmen on farmers at Turan Council ward of Logo Local Government Area of Benue State.

The attack, which occurred between Saturday night and Sunday morning, also left so many members of the community with varying degrees of injuries while several others were still reported missing and property worth millions of naira destroyed.

It was gathered that the suspected armed herdsmen stormed the Gabo Nenzev community numbering over 3,000 from the neighbouring Nasarawa State, shooting sporadically and burning down houses and farms.

It was learnt that policemen drafted to the areas watched helplessly.

Confirming the incident, a member of the Benue State House of Assembly representing Logo Constituency, Kester Kyange, said:

As of this morning, the calls I made confirmed to me that about 59 persons including a traditional ruler were killed while many others are still missing. The women, children and the elderly have all fled their homes to take refuge in Ugba, headquarters of Logo LG.

p style=”text-align: justify”>Speaking to The PUNCH, a fleeing member of one of the communities said:

The people were shooting sporadically and the villagers fled, including myself and members of my family for fear of being killed.

The situation in Ugondo at the moment is scary and we are helpless. It’s as if we are at war. The mission of the invaders is to occupy and take over our villages.

It’s a pathetic situation because corpses are littering the community though one cannot give a specific number of the dead which should not be less than 15. But I know that the casualty figure could be huge because many have been wounded as bullets continue to fly around.

The people are also burning down houses, farms and foodstuff as they move into the villages in what looks like a well-coordinated attack.

Meanwhile, the Benue State Police Command confirmed the incident as it said it has drafted more mobile policemen to the area to forestall further attacks.

Cahill: Top Spot Important For England

Featured Image

Gary Cahill believes it is important for England to finish top of the group, ahead of their final game against Slovakia.

The three lions top the group with four points after two games. And need a win to retain that spot. They could still finish too if they draw, and Wales fail to beat Russia.

Finishing top, will see them face third place finishers in Groups A, C or D. With a second place finish pairing then up against runners up in Group F.

However, if they finish third, they could face the winners of Group C or D. Which is currently occupied by Germany and Spain. And Cahill understands how tough it’ll be to face either team.

“To top the group gives us the best opportunity to move forward in the competition,” the defender told FATV.

“So that is our goal and we are all aware of that. We want to finish top and we feel that we are good enough to do that – we just need to prove it against Slovakia.

“They need a result to stay in the competition as well and we know it’s going to be a hard game.”
