Asap Rocky Shoots Himself In The Foot By Saying Bill Cosby Is Innocent

Featured Image

ASAP Rocky ignorantly said Bill Cosby was innocent as he hadn’t been proven guilty when Bill Cosby had already admitted to having sexual encounters with teenagers.

On The Breakfast Club with Charlamagne Tha God, Wednesday (July, 20) ASAP Rocky tried relating leaving a positive legacy and how it can be usurped by a bad deed just like Bill Cosby.  ASAP didn’t cross-check his information or read on the subject.

Read: Bill Cosby Confesses To Having Sexual Encounters With Teenagers

He told Charlamagne, “I wanna start by encouraging everybody to think as individuals, like we said prior, like, you just read a quick little article and it’s, like, my whole legacy I could do things and it’s just like with Bill Cosby.”

ASAP Rocky said Bill Cosby is innocent

Rocky continued, “He did so much positive things leading up to one thing, which he was convicted of being innocent for, by the way. People don’t even speak about that, You get what I’m saying? All you remember is the 56 women and all that kind of shit.”

Charlamagne reminded him, “That’s a lot of women,” at which ASAP responded, “Yeah, but he’s a powerful man, you know what I’m saying? Look, I’m not his lawyer, but I do know he’s innocent. In the eyes of the law, they said he’s innocent.”

Asap Rocky says All Lives Matter

Moving on to the topic of Black Lives Matter, ASAP Rocky said he did not support the idea of Black Lives Matter only being important when police officers are shooting civilians, adding that “all lives matter.”

He said, “ I hate when the bandwagon stuff start. I mean, how come, you know, black lives only matter when a police take ’em, when a police officer takes it?

And it should be like, black lives, it should matter when a black life take it. You know what I mean? It should always matter. All lives matter!”

As much as one might disagree with what he said, ASAP Rocky has a point on the Black Lives Matter.

The movement shouldn’t only be raised when a police officer kills a black person but ignored when a black person is killed by one of their own.

#ReturnToSender: Banky W Rejects All The Women Who Claim God Sent Them To Him

Featured Image

Banky W is not interested in settling down with any woman who claims God said she is his wife, unless God gives him the same message. 

In a bid to address the stress of female fans receiving revelation and spiritual messages that they were his wife and blowing up his DMs, Banky took to social media to set the issue straight, once and for all.

“If God tells you that somebody is your husband or wife, then let God tell that person too”, the 35-year-old star shared, “Don’t be the person to speak for God, let God speak for himself.”

banky w

Banky W doesn’t want to be pressured into marriage

The Jaiye Orimi crooner continued, “Recently I’ve been getting of lot of people saying “God said You’re my husband, God said I’m your wife”.. It’s a lie. Because God told me nothing about you. God needs to tell me himself.”

Banky W who is one of Nigeria’s most eligible bachelors also aired his opinion on marriage shaming and the unnecessary pressure people put on those in singles-ville to move to married-lane.

“Also can we please chill/stop with the marriage shaming?” He wrote, “Can we stop with the pressure on people. It’s enough, abeg. Single People – The same people who are putting pressure on you to marry will be the same talking about you and mocking you if the marriage does not work out.”

The EME Boss advised, “Don’t rush for anybody. Do it at the right time for you with the right person for you and everything will hopefully work out, by God’s grace.”

Banky W will get married, when he likes, until then, every woman who claims she’s sent from God should pray Banky receives the same message.

Court Orders EFCC To Pay Fayose’s Aide N5m Over Wrongful Detention

Featured Image

The Abuja division of the High Court has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to pay a sum of N5 million to an aide of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, Abiodun Agbele, as compensation for the “wrongful and illegal detention” of the suspect from July 1 till date.

This is even as the presiding judge, Justice Olukayode Adeniyi, condemned in entirety what he called the EFCC’s “gross abuse of powers” and its “arrogant display of executive might”‎ for detaining the suspect illegally for the period.

The Justice also held that the failure of the EFCC to charge Mr. Agbele to court, since his arrest, amounted to an abuse of his fundamental rights.

The EFCC had on June 30, obtained a remand order from a Magistrate Court in Ogba to hold Agbele for 14 days.

The counsel of Agbele, Mike Ozekhome said that the EFCC renewed his detention after the given grace period of 14 days lapsed.

Adeniyi said that since the EFCC transferred Agbele to the FCT, the remand order no longer stands.

The judge also held that Mr. Agbele be admitted to bail with a bond of N50 million and a surety not below the cadre of a director in the civil service.

Alternatively, Mr. Agbele is required to provide a surety who is a responsible Nigerian citizen, with landed property in any part of Abuja.

One Person Dead, 5 Injured As Fresh Attack Ensued In Plateau State

Featured Image

In protest of the murder of the traditional ruler of Bokko Local Government Area, Plateau state, a fresh attack has ensued as soldiers serving with the Special Task Force on Jos crisis on Thursday opened fire on rampaging youths who blocked a road within the area.

It was gathered that at least one person was killed and five others injured.

A source, who witnessed the incident, Mangai Haruna, said the youth refused to allow soldiers into the area, pressing them instead to produce the killers of their kinsmen.

“They shot on our people, one of them died instantly,” Mr. Haruna said.

Speaking also, the leader of the youth group, Jibrin Malau, a physically-challenged man on wheelchair, said they would not allow soldiers provide security to their people anymore.

A youth, Peters Marren, said “We don’t want soldiers again, because the community that was attacked yesterday night (Wednesday) is behind a military base, why didn’t they give the community protection?”

“Soldiers are betrayers, we will not allow soldiers into our villages, they are aiding the killings. They were there when Danan community was set on fire, the armed men destroyed, injured and kill our people. Soldiers must go, we want them replaced with mobile police.”

Meanwhile, Ibrahim Idris, the acting Inspector-General of Police, (IGP) on Thursday, directed Mr. Joshack Habilla, Deputy-Inspector-General of Police (DIG) in charge operations, to proceed to the troubled community with immediate effect and ensure the arrest of the killers of Chief Lazarus Agaie, the traditional ruler of Bokkos, who was murdered on his way from a farm alongside his wife, son and Police orderly.

Sexual Misconduct: Accused Lawmakers Dare US To Provide Video Evidence

Featured Image

The three members of the House of Representatives accused of sexual misconduct have dared the government of the United States to back their allegation with video evidence.

The 3 lawmakers were accused of alleged sexual misconduct while on an official assignment in Cleveland, USA in April this year.

The 3 lawmakers were accused of alleged sexual misconduct while on an official assignment in Cleveland, USA in April this year.

The outgoing US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr James Entwistle, had on June 9, written to Speaker Yakubu Dogara, accusing Rep Mohammed Garba Gololo (APC, Bauchi) of “grabbing” a hotel maid.

He also accused Reps Mark Gbillah (APC, Benue) and Samuel Ikon (PDP, Akwa Ibom) of requesting for prostitutes through car park attendants.

The trio were accused of sexual assault while attending a leadership programme in the United States in April 2016.

On Wednesday, during their appearance at the Joint Committees of the House of Representatives on Ethics and Privileges and Foreign Affairs for questioning, the 3 embattled lawmakers, vented words of utter spleen, daring the US government to come up with evidence.

Speaking on the matter, Gololo stressed that the allegation against him was spurious, adding that during his stay at the Mariot Hotel in US, there was no time a maid entered his room.

“I never grabbed any housemaid. I take this matter seriously. I demand an apology and retraction from the ambassador.

“I insist that the evidence against me be produced. I demand video of the allegation”, he fumed.

On his part, Gbillah said that he never had any cause to speak with an attendant throughout the programme.

“I dare the US government to produce the video evidence on the incident.”

Also testifying, Ikon stated that: “It was most devastating, demeaning and embarrassing to be accused of such misconduct.

“I did not request the assistance of anybody nor did I desire a prostitute. I was never questioned on the alleged issue in the US or in Nigeria for the issue.

They also stated that the US Embassy and by extension the US government had a pre-determined motive for selecting the ten lawmakers for the leadership programme which held in April without passing through proper diplomatic channel.

The accused lawmakers said the speculation regarding the US Embassy and the Home Office having a hidden agenda became inevitable given the manner in which they handled the travelling arrangements by not routing their invitation to the programme through the Foreign Affairs Ministry and by not informing the Nigerian Embassy in Washington DC of their presence and mission in the US.

Another issue of contention at the hearing was the absence of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, who for the second time failed to turn up at the hearing despite postponement of the meeting last week Thursday.

The minister on Wednesday wrote the chairman, House Committee on Ethics and Privileges, Osai Nicholas Osai, expressing regrets for not being able to attend the rescheduled hearing due to the need to attend the Federal Executive Council meeting to brief the council on what happened at the AU summit in Kigali, Rwanda.

The committee, though recognising the need for the minister to brief the council, however, insisted that he be present at the hearing as it needs to finish with the matter and lay it to rest before proceeding on long vacation today.

Why Buhari Snubbed Ambassadorial Nominees From Bayelsa, Taraba, Others – Senator Sani

Featured Image

The Senate on Wednesday resolved to begin consideration and screening of 47 ambassadorial nominees sent by President Muhammadu Buhari for approval.

This followed the adoption of the recommendations of the Committee on Foreign Affairs mandated to investigate the 37 petitions forwarded to the Senate on alleged lop-sidedness in the nomination.

The Chairman of the committee, Shehu Sani, said that from the committee’s investigation, due process was followed in appointing the nominees.

He said the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, informed the committee that states without nominees had no qualified persons for appointment as career ambassadors based on set guidelines.

He said most senior officers from the states affected either did not meet the required minimum of 30 months to their retirement or fell short of other criteria.

However, the lawmaker said Mr. Lawal gave the assurance that Mr. Buhari would address the seeming lop-sidedness with the appointment of non-career ambassadors.

The committee recommended that the Senate proceed with the screening, while urging the federal government to quickly submit the list of non-career ambassadors.

It also urged the federal government to sustain the tradition of submitting the list of non-career ambassadors alongside that of career ambassadors.

The Senate, thereafter, adopted the recommendations of the committee through a voice vote and resolved to commence screening of the nominees as soon as possible.

Mr. Buhari had sent the list of 47 career ambassadors to the senate for approval on June 9.

However, petitions trailed the nominations over alleged disregard for federal character principle and non-representation of states like Bayelsa, Benue, Kogi, Ondo, Plateau and Taraba among others.

Chief Bola Ige (SAN): Sacrificial Lamb Of High-Wire Power Play? – Stephen Ubimago

Chief Bola Ige (SAN): Sacrificial Lamb Of High-Wire Power Play? – Stephen Ubimago

When on July 17, President Muhammadu Buhari gave Acting Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, instructions to reopen investigation into the assassination of former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Chief James Ajibola Idowu Ige (SAN), and fish out his assailants, not a few Nigerians commended the move as spot on.

This article was written by Stephen Ubimago. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

For example, the late Attorney General’s son, Arc. Muyiwa Ige, is quoted as having described the presidential directive as a glorious dawn for the Ige family, stressing, “We are happy; we will get justice after 16 years.”

Yet, many Nigerians are not so impressed despite the positive symbolism of the presidential directive.

While some maintain that the president, by the move, was merely playing to the gallery; others say it was a dubious stir only aimed at shoring up his dwindling popularity, especially among his die-hard supporters from the South West, who seem to have started withdrawing their support for him in the face of growing criticism that he seem not to have a handle over the management of the nation’s affairs, particularly on the economic front.

Indeed many were the high-profile politically-motivated killings that took place during the tenure of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, which lasted from May 29, 1999 to May 29, 2007.

These unresolved murder cases include those of ex-Deputy National Chairman, South-South, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Harry Sokari Marshall; the assassination also of the man who succeeded him in office, Chief Aminasoari Dikibo; the killing of the 2007 governorship candidate of the PDP in Lagos State, Chief Funsho Williams; as well as the murder of the 2007 governorship candidate of the defunct Action Congress (AC) in Ogun State, Otunba Adedipupo Dina, among others.

It is however curious that despite this harvest of unresolved political killings, the president only gave instructions for the reopening of investigation into just two of the cases, Dikibo’s and Ige’s.

For the more sanguine observers, however, nothing could be more sagacious and bolstering of their confidence in the president’s ability to deliver on the initiative than that he chose to start with a few.

According to them, to have instructed otherwise could have been as naïve as it might have amounted to throwing too much in the plate of the investigators, with the effect of seeing them overwhelmed and perhaps bumbling the initiative altogether.

Accordingly, the president’s nomination of Ige and Dikibo for starters only suggests the inauguration of a long process, they argue. It is being seen as a portent in that before long the attention of the investigators would be broadened to cover the yet uncharted territories.

The development has however raised a number of questions, which hereunder are distilled as issues to ponder:

  1. Whether public institutions statutorily saddled with the task of detection and investigation of crimes or apprehension of offenders like the Police, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and others lack a sense of initiative and thus must tarry on the instruction or body-language of the president to be able to act?
  2. Whether these institutions are as good or bad as the mindset or predilection of the commander-in-chief otherwise they are as ideas-less or will-less as experimental cadavers?
  3. Whether critics are correct in saying that the Police or EFCC, for example, are simply the attack dogs of the president, having regard to the above instantiating development?
  4. Whether in being beholden to the President’s proclivities, these institutions become politically exposed or corrupted and compromised by politicization?
  5. Whether their inability to assert their independence and take initiatives primes them for reform?

Suffice to note that the former Attorney General was gunned down by unknown gunmen in his bedroom at his Bodija home in Ibadan, Oyo State, at about 9:00pm on December 23, 2001, for which some explanatory hypothesis had been formulated according to which investigators in the past had attempted to trace his killers, albeit abortively.

One theory that had preeminently featured in the past, which for some reasons seemed to have excited officialdom to no end, and which had been whipped to frenzy and even used ineffectually to track and prosecute his alleged killers is that the man was eliminated by his political associates in the old Alliance for Democracy (AD).

The narrative was located in Osun State. The state had been engulfed in a crisis occasioned by a rift that had pitted then Governor Bisi Akando and his deputy, Chief Iyiola Omisore in some war of attrition over political differences.

While late Chief Abraham Adesanya, leader of the pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organization Afenifere and the AD rallied support for Omisore; Chief Ige, Adesanya’s second-in-command in Afenifere and AD drummed up following for Akande.

Indeed, the rank of Yoruba leadership during the period seemed to have been torn along the fault-lines drawn by their leanings for or against Akande or Omisore.

Moves quickly thickened to have Omisore sacked vide an impeachment hearing in the Osun State House of Assembly.

The development saw the House being hauled into a fractious mode that spilled into a general din in the state, resulting in the assassination of one of the lawmakers, Hon. Odunayo Olagbaju.

Successive developments in tow also witnessed naked assaults on the person of Ige.

In fact few days prior to his assassination, the Oni’s Palace in Ile-Ife had recorded a humiliating treatment delivered on the man by tugs in which his cap had been pulled off his head.

Omisore would subsequently grant a press interview in which he appeared to have endorsed the attack on Ige.

In the light of this interaction of events, commonsensical logic came to the conclusion that the murder of Ige might not be unconnected to the political differences that existed within the Afenifere/AD leadership at the time and that Omisore and his backers must be the killers.

Few days after Ige’s murder, one Adeniyi Yinusa, 27, turned himself in to the Police in Ibadan, confessing to being part of the gang that killed the late AGF.

He was however quickly dismissed as being only off his rockers, or had been financially induced or otherwise.

On Monday, January 14, 2002, Lagos lawyer, Mr. Festus Keyamo, with one Joseph Olugbenga Damola Elubode Adebayo (a.k.a. Frayo) in tow, articulated at a press conference, via a deposition, what he knew about the killing.

Frayo was however quickly taken into custody in Lagos, and ferried off to Abuja in a heartbeat, following which investigations into the incident tapered into an inexplicable lull until Wednesday, February 13, when the Police arrested two journalists, Messrs Segun Banjo and Femi Davies, of the Ace magazine over their relationship with Frayo.

Apparently, they had quartered Frayo for a few days before advising him to approach Keyamo for counsel.

Then suddenly, on Friday, February 15, a newspaper published a retraction letter by Frayo, saying he’d been coerced and coached by Keyamo into writing his earlier deposition, wherein he’d confessed to what he knew about Ige’s murder.

On Saturday, February 16, 2002, Keyamo himself was arrested, kept in custody for months and later released.

But the point of interest is that the lawyer was subsequently appointed prosecutor to try Omisore, who had been arrested and accused of the Ige murder.

The former Osun State deputy governor was kept in detention for two years. He was tried but finally discharged and acquitted of the murder charge by the court.

In the light of the foregoing narrative, question has arisen as to whether in reopening investigation into Ige’s murder, recourse would be had to the hypothesis that Ige had been consumed by political differences in the leadership rank of the old AD/Afenifere.

Wouldn’t a revisit of Omisore for investigation be at the risk of offending the constitutional rule against Double Jeopardy?

This explains why some observers have argued that the politicization of Ige’s murder made locating the real culprits of the dastardly act a recondite assignment; and hence why another explanatory model may have to be admitted for unraveling the thorny case.

According to this alternative hypothesis, Ige was eliminated by the Obasanjo government, who ahead of his 2003 second term ambition felt the need to do away with the man, given his significant influence as a key Yoruba leader, in order to leave the AD in disarray and aid PDP’s scheme of penetrating the South-West.

In a strategic ploy of keeping one’s enemy closer so as to aim at his decimation with precision and ease, the Obasanjo government threw at him the bait of ministerial offices to enable close tabs on his itinerary, following which he could be finished off seamlessly.

Alluding to this line of thinking, Afenifere leader, Chief Ayo Adebanjo had asserted in an interview, “The Federal Government of that period murdered Chief Bola Ige, and incidentally, instead of confessing, they passed the buck, accusing Ige’s political associates of the murder.”

Born in Zaria, near Kaduna, on September 13, 1930, Chief Bola Ige (SAN) studied at Ibadan Grammar School between 1943 and ’48; and at the University of Ibadan, where he bagged a BA in Classics with honors.

He later proceeded to the University College London where he graduated with a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) in 1959, and was called to the bar in London’s Inner Temple in 1961.

The late lawyer and politician, then fondly called the Cicero of Esa Oke, was former governor of old Oyo State; Minister of Mines and Power; as well as Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, among others.

Documents Show Diamond Bank May Have Laid Off 400 Workers (Photos)

Featured Image

Documents have been released to support the claims that Diamond Bank Nigeria Plc actually laid off 400 workers as against the 200 it earlier alleged.

A lawyer based in Abuja, Mr Frank Tietie, had earlier accused the management of the bank of unfair labour practices against some recently sacked workers of the bank.

Online newspaper, Independentnig quoted the lawyer, in a letter dated June 29, and addressed to the Managing Director of the bank, as saying that the workers were “rudely’’ informed of their sack by e-mail on May 27.

He said that the action breached the provisions of Section 20 of the Labour Act on redundancy as well as “other labour regulations, standards and best practices’’.

The legal practitioner alleged that 400 workers were affected, but the bank confirmed the sack of only 200 in a statement on May 27.

According to Tietie, Diamond Bank goes further to unilaterally deduct supposed? long term loans from the bank accounts of the affected workers against earlier agreed loan tenures.

He said such an action was unbecoming of a Nigerian bank against its staff, which was yet to recover from the trauma and shock of the unexpected termination of their employments.

“By that action, they have been further subjected to the punishment of being suddenly thrown into serious financial dire straits.

“This is despite the unblemished and meritorious services they had rendered to the bank as committed and dedicated staff for periods ranging from one to 20 years.’’

He gave the bank 15 working days from the day of receipt of the letter to enter into negotiations with representatives of the affected workers or face legal action.

In a swift reaction, the Head of the bank’s Media Relations Unit, Mr Ikechukwu Omeife, who had earlier reaffirmed the lender’s claim that only 200 workers were affected, explained that the dismissal was part of a rightsizing recently undertaken by the bank to “optimise cost and enhance value for the shareholders at the end of the business year”.

He said that the affected 200 employees were those whose performance records were lower than the minimum required to drive the bank’s strategic growth plan.

Omeife wondered why the lawyer singled out Diamond Bank for attack over an exercise that was a normal practice in the corporate world and which other banks had also undertaken.

Buhari Appoints Ndoma-Egba As NDDC Chair, Ekere As MD

Featured Image

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of a former Senate Leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba, as the new Chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

This is just as he removed Mrs Ibim Semenitari as acting Managing Director of the Commission and then appointed a former Deputy Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Nsima Ekere, to take over.

Semenitari has been the acting Managing Director of the NDDC since December 21, 2015.

The Senate President is expected to read the president’s letter on the appointments tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Ndoma-Egba, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, who hails from Cross River State, takes over from Bassey Ewa-Henshaw, also from the state.

He was a member of the Peoples Democratic Party until September last year when he resigned from the party following his inability to secure its governorship ticket of the former.

He joined the ruling All Progressives Congress in November.

Mr. Ewa-Henshaw-led Board was sacked by the federal government on July 16, 2015 though it went to court to challenge the action.

The board members argued that by virtue of sections 2, 3 and 5 of the NDDC Act, they were entitled to four years unbroken tenure from December 16, 2013 to December 15, 2017.

Organised Labour under the aegis of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) on Wednesday gave the Kogi state government a 30-day ultimatum to pay the seven-month salary it owed workers or face a strike action.

The NLC president also hailed the workers for their determination to press home their demands despite intimidation from the state government and its apparatus.

His words: “Let me salute you for your courage and determination to pay the ultimate price for your fundamental human rights in the face of threat and intimidation.

“All over the world, nobody gets his right while sitting down and watching without taking any drastic action; there is price for liberty everywhere in the world which is vigilance.

“We have heard about your predicaments and we thought we cannot have the comfort of sitting in Abuja without coming to see and confirm the report we received.

“With our collective strength and unity, we shall surely overcome these predicaments caused by our leaders,” he said.

Also speaking, the TUC President, Mr Bobboi Kaigama, divulged that the union would not allow impunity against any worker in the state.
