Premium Times quoted sources in the agency as saying that all the seven judges were released on self-recognition.

One of the sources said: “They were all released on bail yesterday(Sunday) on self recognition.”

“They reported this morning (Monday) and they have all gone back home. They will be coming back tomorrow. And everything went very procedurally well and civil.

“They were released on bail on self recognition based on the fact that given their standing in the society, they cannot run away. They were instructed that they should come back today by 10am.

“They did report for investigation this morning and they have gone back home. And the investigation continues and preparation to charge them to court continued.”

The source added, “Also, action was sequel to lack of cooperation by National Judicial Council. Such as refusal by the NJC to allow the affected persons to be questioned by the DSS. Investigation started some seven months ago, precisely in April 2016.”

Apology to Rahama Sadau:

Following the release of my latest single “I Love You” featuring Avala, as well as its official video, with a cameo from the very talented Rahama Sadau, it has come to my attention that the video has been met with strong criticism from certain quarters.

As much as I believe in the art that I call music, I am also sensitive to some cultural perception towards the professional challenges that we all face. To this end, and further to my private apologies, I would like to make an unreserved public apology to Rahama Sadau for the consequences she is facing for appearing in my video. I would also like to apologize to the fans and audience of my music who have been offended by the content of my music. I assure you that no offence or disrespect was intended; just the creation of beautiful music and a video portrayal of my art.

Rahama, you are a supremely talented and hardworking young lady, who is excelling in your industry and pushing boundaries. You remain a role model; we stand with you.

Thank you for taking the time out to work with me.

Yours truly,

ClassiQ.

A Message from ClassiQ: Letter to the Public

The release of my latest single “I Love You” featuring Avala, as well as its official video, with a cameo from the very talented Rahama Sadau, has garnered widespread acclaim in just a short time. However, the video has also been met with strong criticism from certain quarters.

I am, first and foremost, an artist and a creative. Music is my art; music is my platform. Music is also my method of telling stories, painting pictures and bringing out both the real and the imaginative. We are all ambassadors of art, in one way or another, even the fans!

It has come to my knowledge that my music has caused an issue in certain parts of the Nigerian creative industry. As much as we all have the liberty to set our individual or collective principles and ethical standards, my work is never directed at any particular person or group. It is therefore, not intended to offend, ridicule or challenge any standards that have been set anywhere, most especially when I am not a part of that group.

To this end, I empathize with those who have been on the receiving end of the criticism and judgments passed as a direct result of my music. I implore the entire global creative industry to encourage, appreciate and accept art in all of its different forms.

Thank you to all ambassadors of art. We are family.

“Crackdown” On Judicial Officers – Separating The Law From Sentiments

“Crackdown” On Judicial Officers – Separating The Law From Sentiments, By Inibehe Effiong

The State Security Services (SSS) embarked on an unprecedented “crackdown” on allegedly corrupt judicial officers across the country over the weekend. Among the judicial officers whose houses were searched and thereafter arrested and detained are two Justices of the Supreme Court of Nigeria; Justices Sylvester Ngwuta and Inyang Okoro.

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

As expected, the action has polarised lawyers, commentators, the media, civil society and the public. Differing views have been expressed on the constitutionality or otherwise of the steps and procedures adopted by the SSS. Sadly, the public has been deprived of opinions that are rooted in law owing largely to the belligerent and sentimental posturing and aggressive grandstanding that has impaired commentaries on the issues in controversy.

My task in this essay is simply to offer a legal opinion on the four following issues: First, are judicial officers in Nigeria immune from the criminal justice system?; Second, is it mandatory for security agencies to seek the consent/intervention of the National Judicial Council (NJC) before investigating, arresting, detaining or prosecuting a judicial officer over alleged crimes?; Three, did the SSS act within its statutory powers and acceptable legal procedures? Four, is the evidence obtained illegally admissible in law?

The above questions or issues are in my considered view the cruxes of the matter.

Resolution of the issues: First, are judicial officers in Nigeria immune from the criminal justice system?

The only constitutional provision relating to immunity from civil and criminal proceedings and prosseses for certain public office holders in Nigeria is Section 308 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) (hereinafter referred to as the Constitution). Based on that provision, only the President, the Vice President, Governors and Deputy Governors are shielded from civil and criminal proceedings and processes in limited circumstances.

It is an elementary rule of interpretation that the express mention of one person or thing is the exclusion of another. The maxim is expressio unius personae vel, est exclusio alterius. In the case of Ehuwa v. O.S.I.E.C. (2006) 10 NWLR (Pt.1012) 544, the Supreme Court stated the position thus:

“It is now firmly established that in the construction of a Statutory provision, where a statute mentions specific things or persons, the intention is that those not mentioned are not intended to be included…” Per OGBUAGU, JSC.

The implication is that every person, apart from the four public officers expressly mentioned in Section 308 of the Constitution, is subject to investigation, arrest, detention and prosecution. Judicial officers from the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) to High Court Judges do not enjoy any special protection from criminal proceedings and processes. Immunity cannot be inferred, it must be specifically granted.

READ ALSO: Buhari Finally Breaks Silence On The Arrest Of 7 Judges

Those suggesting that judicial officers in Nigeria are entitled to special protection or immunity should be kind enough to cite the enabling constitutional or statutory provision that supports their position. The truth is that there is none.

Second, is it mandatory for security agencies to seek the consent/intervention of the NJC before investigating, arresting, detaining or prosecuting a judicial officer over alleged crimes?

The NJC is one of the institutions established by Section 153 of the Constitution. The power of the Council is provided for in Paragraph 21 of the Third Schedule to the Constitution. The NJC is empowered inter alia, to recommend the removal from office of judicial officers and exercise disciplinary control over them. By virtue of Section 158 (1) of the Constitution, the NJC is guaranteed constitutional independence and is not subject to the control of any other authority or person when exercising its disciplinary control.

There is no dispute on the disciplinary control of the NJC over judicial officers. What is disputed by some legal commentators is the extent of the disciplinary control. Is it correct to aver that no criminal proceedings or action can be initiated or taken against a judicial officer except on the invitation/directive of the NJC?

At the risk of repetition, where a judicial officer is alleged to have committed a crime, is it mandatory for law enforcement agencies to go through the disciplinary instrumentality of the NJC before taking actions against the erring judicial officer?

There is nothing in the provisions of Paragraph 21 of the Third Schedule to the Constitution that precludes law enforcement agencies from investigating, arresting, detaining or prosecuting a judicial officer in Nigeria for alleged corrupt practices or for other sundry offences. It is my view that a contrary interpretation will have the inescapable effect of conferring an extra-constitutional immunity on judicial officers.

In rule seven (7) of the famous twelve (12) point rule of constitutional interpretation propounded by OBASEKI, JSC in the celebrated case of Attorney-General of Bendel State vs Attorney-General of the Federation (1981) 10 SC. 1; (1981) 1 FNLR 179, the Supreme Court declared thus:

“A constitutional provision should not be construed in such a way as to defeat its evident purpose.”

The purpose of Section 308 of the Constitution as evidently enshrined therein is to protect ONLY the President, Vice President, Governors and Deputy Governors from arrest, detention and prosecution. I submit that any construction on the disciplinary power of the NJC that tends to shield judicial officers from arrest, detention and prosecution will automatically defeat the purpose of Section 308 of the Constitution.

It is my humble view that where the wrongful act of a judicial officer is merely a misconduct and nothing more, the NJC is vested with the power to recommend such offending judicial officer for removal from office and exercise disciplinary control over him. The NJC’s independence from control guaranteed and envisaged by Section 158 of the Constitution does not, and cannot be construed to mean totality or absoluteness of control over judicial officers where the misconduct complained of also constitutes a crime.

Before concluding on this point, there is a widely propagated misconception that needs to be corrected.

It has been argued by some persons that the procedure on how erring judges should be dealt with requires that even when a judge is found or alleged to have committed a crime, a petition must first be written to the NJC and that the petitioner and the law enforcement agencies like the police, the EFCC, the SSS and others must patiently wait for the determination of the petition by the NJC before activating the criminal process. With respect, that cannot be the correct position.

Ostensibly, this misconception stems from a misunderstanding of the relationship between the constitutional procedure for removal of judicial officers and the liability of judges for criminal offences committed by them.

The procedure for removal of judicial officers in Nigeria is as contained in Section 292 of the Constitution. In brevity, the provision is to the effect that the NJC may recommend to the President or Governor, as the case may be, the removal from office of erring judicial officers for inability to perform the functions of their office due to infirmity (whether of the body or mind) or misconduct or contravention of the Code of Conduct. Note that the NJC only recommends, it does not and cannot remove any judicial officer solely on its own.

There is nothing in Section 292 of the Constitution that makes the removal of an erring judicial officer a condition precedent to his investigation, arrest, detention and prosecution by law enforcement agencies.

No law enforcement agency can usurp the disciplinary powers of the NJC by recommending a judge for removal or suspending a judge or exercising other form of disciplinary control over a judicial officer. Likewise the NJC cannot and should not usurp the constitutional cum statutory functions of the law enforcement agencies to investigate crimes, arrest, detain or prosecute any person, including judicial officers, for alleged crimes. Both causes of action can either run concurrently or separately depending on the circumstances of each case. Where for example a judicial officer is accused of corruption, which is both an act of professional misconduct and a crime, the aggrieved party and or law enforcement agency may elect to petition the NJC for the removal of the judicial officer from office or proceed directly to subject the erring judicial officer to the criminal justice system or pursue both causes of action at the same time.

The NJC is not a court of law under Section 6 of the Constitution and has no supervisory jurisdiction over law enforcement agencies.

Third, did the SSS act within its statutory power and acceptable procedure?

The SSS is a creation of the National Security Agencies Act of 1986. The power of the SSS as stipulated in Section 3 of the Act is as follows:

(3) The State Security Service shall be charged with responsibility for-
(a) the prevention and detection within Nigeria of any crime against the internal security of Nigeria;
(b) the protection and preservation of all non-military classified matters concerning the internal security of Nigeria; and
(c) such other responsibilities affecting internal security within Nigeria as the National Assembly or the President, as the case may be, may deem necessary.

READ ALSO: Why We Raided The Homes Of ‘High Ranking’ Nigerian Judges – DSS

Going by the provisions of paragraphs (a) and (b) supra, it is apparent that the SSS stricto sensu (in the strict sense) has no power to arrest judicial officers for alleged economic and financial crimes. However, a dispassionate attention should be paid to the wordings and purport of paragraph (c) above. Clearly, that provision (paragraph C) gives the President the power to enlarge the scope of responsibilities of the SSS relating to the internal security within Nigeria. Section 6 of the Act goes further to empower the President to issue an Instrument, a subsidiary legislation, on the manner the SSS should exercise its powers, etc.

In exercise of the power in Sections 3 and 6 of the National Security Agencies Act 1986, former Head of State, General Abdusalam Abubakar in 1999 promulgated the State Security Service Instrument One of 1999. By virtue of that Instrument, the responsibilities of the SSS was extended to include the prevention, detection and investigation of economic crimes of national security dimension, among other things. It is important to emphasise that the National Security Agencies Act has a special constitutional flavour, being one of the four federal enactments listed in Section 315 (5) of the Constitution. The consequence is that it cannot be altered like ordinary Acts of the National Assembly. It has the same alteration procedure like the Constitution as laid down in Section 9 (2) of the Constitution.

According to the SSS, the affected judicial officers were arrested on the basis of allegations of corrupt practices and professional misconduct. The SSS, in a statement, said that raw cash of different denominations, in both local and foreign currencies, asset worth millions of naira and documents affirming “unholy acts of these Judges” have been uncovered through a sting operation. The summary of cash allegedly recovered during the “raids” conducted in the homes of the Judges was given as follows: naira – N93,558,000.00; dollars – $530,087; pounds – £25,970 and euro – €5,680.

The question is, does the grave allegations levelled against the Judges and the alleged offences committed by them constitute “economic crimes of national security dimension” to bring same within the purview of the additional powers of the SSS pursuant to Instrument One of 1999?

It is advisable for us to examine the role of judicial officers in nation building. A corrupt judge is not only a threat to justice and the rule of law but to the society and the nation. Judges are by their calling empowered to make binding decisions on behalf of the rest of the society. When judgments are obtained fraudulently, the society and the nation are endangered. A corrupt judge is more dangerous than a kidnapper or an armed robber. The worst form of corruption is judicial corruption.

Though the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is the specialised and coordinating agency for the detection, prevention and prosecution of economic and financial crimes, economic crimes committed by a judicial officer is far more serious and damaging than those of other categories of persons and there is some wisdom is categorising same as “economic crimes of national security dimension” for which the SSS can act upon.

On the manner the searches and arrests were conducted, I concede that the SSS acted in a rather brash and indecorous manner. However, facts are sacred and the law should be separated from sentiments. It is reported that the SSS obtained both search and arrest warrants. What is in dispute is whether the warrants covered all the affected judicial officers and the somewhat “undemocratic” manner they were executed, particularly the time.

The relevant principal law on the issuance of a search/arrest warrant is the Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015 (ACJA). Part 18 of the ACJA is devoted to search warrants, Section 144 thereof allows for the issuance of a search warrant on any house. The warrant may also authorise the officer or other person to arrest the occupier of the house or place where any incriminating item or thing is found during the search. Where this is specified in the search warrant, there would be no need to obtain an arrest warrant separately. By Section 146 of the ACJA, a search warrant shall be under the hand of a Judge, Magistrate or Justice of the Peace issuing it and shall remain in force until it is executed or cancelled by the court which issued it.

One important provision under Part 18 of the ACJA that those criticising the SSS should note is Section 148. It states unequivocally thus:

“A search warrant may be issued and executed at any time on any day, including a Sunday or Public Holiday.”

However, under Section 151 of the ACJA, a search warrant cannot be executed outside the jurisdiction of the court or Justice of the Peace issuing it, except with the consent of the court within whose jurisdiction the search is to be made. It is doubtful whether the SSS complied with this requirement before embarking on the search at the houses of some of the judges located outside the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja where the search warrant must have been issued.

It has been argued by some lawyers, including some Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs) that the ACJA does not apply throughout the federation and that the SSS was bound to follow the provisions of the enabling procedural laws in the States where they executed the search, especially as it pertains to the time of execution of the search warrants. This argument with respect is misleading.

Under Section 111 of the repealed Criminal Procedure Act Cap. C41 LFN 2004, the time for executing a search warrant in the South was between the hours of five o’clock in the forenoon and eight o’clock at night of any day of the week, including Sundays but the Magistrate had the power to direct otherwise. The repealed Criminal Procedure (Northern States) Act Cap. C42 LFN 2004, was however silent on the time. Both Acts have now been repealed by Section 493 of the ACJA 2015 and are no longer laws in Nigeria. Section 2 of the ACJA makes the ACJA applicable to criminal trials for offences created by an Act of the National Assembly, like economic and financial crimes, and to other offences punishable in the FCT, it is the ACJA and not the various laws of the States where the “raids” were conducted that governs the procedure adopted by the SSS.

READ MORE: DSS Operatives Invade Judge’s Residence, Allegedly ‘Rough-Handled’ Wike

Accordingly, it is misleading for anyone to suggest that the SSS was wrong to have executed the search warrant(s) at night.
It is reported that the SSS forcibly broke into the house of one of the judges. Section 149 (1) of the ACJA states thus:

“Where any building liable to be search is closed, a person residing in or being in charge of the building, thing or place, shall on demand of the police officer or other person executing the search warrant, allow him free and unhindered acess to it and afford all reasonable facilities for its search.”

By the combined effect of Sections 9, 10, 12, 13 and 149 (2) of the ACJA, the person executing a search warrant and or arrest warrant is empowered to “break open any outer or inner door or window of any house or place” where unhindered acess is denied upon demand. If the SSS had requested for unhindered access into the house of the affected judge and they were denied, the breaking of the door of the judge’s house was lawful as expressly stated in the ACJA.

Four, is illegally obtained evidence admissible in law? In other words, where evidence is recovered in contravention of the procedure for search of houses and places, will the court admit same?

Every lawyer in this country that is worth his salt knows the answer to this question. The answer is YES – illegally obtained evidence is admissible. The Supreme Court held so in unmistakable terms right from 1968 in the case of Musa Sadau & Anor v. The State (1968) NMLR 208. Also in Kuruma V. R. (1955)1 All ER 236 at 239-240, the Privy Council stated, inter alia, thus:

“The test to be applied in considering whether evidence is admissible is whether it is relevant to the matters in issue. If it is admissible…..the court is not concerned with how the evidence was obtained”.

It is an elementary rule of evidence that what determines admissibility is relevance and not how the evidence was procured. See Section 1 of the Evidence Act 2011 and the cases of Torti v. Ukpabi (1984) 1 SCNLR 214 AT 236 – 237 and 239 24O and Lasun v. Awoyemi (2009) 16 NWLR (Pt.1168) 513 at 553.

Accordingly, the evidence allegedly recovered from the houses of the judges are admissible in law whether search warrants were obtained or not or properly executed or not. The court will still go ahead to admit the evidence irrespective of protestations against its illegality. This may not sound comforting, but that is the law.

By way of concluding remarks, I will like to make some points clear. The Judiciary is a sacred institution that should not be desecrated by any person. However, there is no sacredness in corruption. Judges must at all times be treated with decency and respect befitting of their offices but corrupt judges should be identified and treated like other criminals in the society. Nigeria is blessed with some of the best judicial brains that can be found anywhere in the world, but the nefarious activities of the bad eggs on the Bench should never be tolerated under any guise.

Judges are not above the law.

Like other public servants, judges in Nigeria are paid in naira, not in dollars, pounds, euros or cedis. Judges are not Bureau De Change operators and are not permitted to engage in business adventures. Therefore, the Nigerain people with whose taxes and resources the Judiciary is funded deserves to know how their Lordships came about the mind-blowing hard currencies found in their homes? The public deserves to know how their Lordships came about the asset allegedly traced to them. Judges who are living above their means should be able to answer some questions from the law enforcement agencies.
Their Lordships are presumed innocent until proved guilty and they should be given fair trial and fair hearing.

Instead of threatening the President, the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) should tell us what they have done about the recent brutal murder of their member in Rivers State, Mr. Ken Atsuwete. Where was the NBA when a High Court Judge was assaulted in open court in Ekiti State by political thugs led by a governor? Why did the NBA not declare a state of emergency on the judiciary when Justice Ayo Isa Salami was humiliated and disgraced out of the Bench by the administration of Goodluck Jonathan despite the NJC’s recommendation that he should be reinstated? What has the NBA done to Mr. Ricky Tarfa (SAN) for allegedly bribing judges? Whose interest is the NBA fighting for?

Records have shown that judges in other jurisdictions, including the United States have been arrested, prosecuted and jailed for corruption and other criminal conducts. Ghana recently purged its judiciary. If this is the time to uproot the pervasive cancer of corruption in the Nigerian Judiciary it is a welcome development and should be supported. Without checks and balances, the doctrine of separation of powers is useless and unworkable.

We cannot have different standards for the rule of law; one for the influential and another for the poor or one for the judges and another for the rest rest us.

Police Recruitment May Have Been Suspended As Senate Cites Irregularity

Featured Image

There are strong indications that the recruitment of 10,000 personnel into the Nigerian Police Force may have been suspended over alleged irregularity.

Reliable sources close to the polity told Daily Trust that the recruitment was already underway when it was discovered that the criteria set for the exercise had been abandoned.

READ ALSO: Police Recruitment: 110,469 Nigerians Vie For 10,000 Slots | Aptitude Test Starts On Monday

Consequently, the Police Service Commission (PSC) – which is in charge of the recruitment process – may have placed the exercise on hold, based on an order from the Senate Police Committee.

The sources stated that the Senate Committee on Police gave the suspension order on Thursday in a letter it wrote to the commission and also forwarded to President Muhammadu Buhari.

READ ALSO: Police Recruitment: 110, 469 Applicants Shortlisted

President Buhari had ordered for the recruitment of 10,000 policemen over a year ago. But the exercise ran into a number of delays and setbacks over the past year.

After initial hiccups, the recruitment, which finally took off in August, was discovered to have been done lopsidedly.

The stakeholders had agreed that the recruitment would be based on local government areas.

Trouble however started when the commission decided to jettison the ‘modus operandi’ and base the exercise on equal number per state – citing orders from above.

Daily Post also gathered that the presidency has directed the PSC Chairman, Mike Okiro, to explain the fault pointed out by the red chamber.

Reacting to the suspension when contacted yesterday, the spokesman of the PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, said the recruitment exercise is still underway.

Ani maintained that the officials of the commission had just finished a field exercise on the recruitment process.

However, checks and recent events may have betrayed his stance as there had been no major news on the recruitment since applicants wrote their aptitude tests late August.

Napoli Could Offer West Ham Flop Simone Zaza Escape Route 

Featured Image

West Ham striker Simone Zaza has emerged as a January transfer target for Napoli, according to Naples-based daily Il Mattino.

Napoli are looking to replace the injured Arkadiusz Milik, who is expected to miss the next five months with a knee injury.

The Italian international has endured a torrid time in recent months, drawing ire for his subpar performances since joining the Hammers after being ridiculed for a bizarre penalty miss in the Azzurri’s shootout defeat to Germany at Euro 2016

Zaza arrived at West Ham on loan from Juventus with an obligation to sign him permanently once he plays 15 games for Slaven Bilic’s side and, according to Football Italia, the struggling capital club are now considering dropping the 25-year-old to avoid triggering the agreement.

Therefore, a move to Napoli appears to suit both parties, with the Serie A giants desperate to add a forward to their ranks following a Five-month lay off for star striker Arkadiusz Milik. 

As reported by Calciomercato, Zaza is headlining Napoli’s shortlist alongside reported Liverpool targets Gregoire Defrel and Leonardo Pavoletti.

Monaco Defender Djbril Sidibe Turned Down Arsenal Offer

Featured Image

France defender Djibril Sidibe turned down Arsenal this summer fearing he would not play regularly – but has targeted a move to England next season.

The 24-year-old joined Monaco on a five-year deal from Lille in July, but only after the Gunners failed with a late bid.

“I was on the brink (of signing for Monaco) and (Arsenal) gave me a headache by making a bid at the last moment,” Sidibe told Le Parisien.

“After reflecting on it, I was not certain my playing time would be guaranteed.

“I would have played maybe 25 games this season, including the cups. They also wanted to use me on the left whereas I want to establish myself on the right.

“I chose to stay in Ligue 1 and then leave for the Premier League next year because it is a competition that greatly appeals to me.”

Borussia Dortmund Star Ousmane Dembele Told Barcelona “He’ll Play For Them” Before Rejecting Thier Bid

Featured Image

Ousmane Dembele informed Barcelona chiefs he will play for the club in the future after he rejected a move to the La Liga champions earlier this year, reports Mundo Deportivo.

Dembele burst on to the scene at Rennes last season and subsequently attracted admiring glances from around Europe.

The 19-year-old eventually opted for Borussia Dortmund, who snapped him up for an initial fee of €8m (£7.2m), but he could have signed for Barcelona.

Barca’s sporting director Robert Fernandez offered him the chance to join the club, but he turned it down as he was aware that he would not have had regular first-team football due to the presence of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

However, Dembele is understood to have told Fernandez that he will play at Barcelona in the future at some point.

Manchester United are lining up a £12m bid for Sao Paulo holding midfielder Rodrigo Caio, reports the Daily Star.

The 23-year-old, part of Brazil’s gold-medal winning squad at this summer’s Rio Olympics, has reportedly been earmarked by Jose Mourinho as the key to United’s midfield problems.

The Portuguese has struggled to find Paul Pogba a partner in the middle of the park, with Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick unable to nail down the position.

And the Star claim Caio is set to leave Sao Paulo in January and United are poised for talks as they look to beat PSG, AC Milan and Sevilla to his signature.

Inter Milan Vice President Javier Zanetti To Talk To Jose Mourinho Over Matteo Darmian 

Featured Image

Inter Milan vice-president Javier Zanetti will personally fly to England in a bid to convince Jose Mourinho to allow Matteo Darmian to leave Manchester United on loan.

The vice-president gets on very well with former manager , now Red Devils Coach Jose Mourinho, and the hope is that the Special One’s own Milanese past may persuade him to keep Darmian away from Juventus.

Calciomercato.com claim Inter Milan want to sign the Italy defender on an initial six-month loan, with the view to a permanent €15m (£13.5m) transfer.

Darmian, who moved to United from Torino in 2015 for £12.7m, has fallen behind Antonio Valencia in the packing order at Old Trafford.

The 24-year-old has made just one appearance under Jose Mourinho – September’s Europa League defeat at Feyenoord – and is concerned a lack of game-time could jeopardise his international career.

Featured Image

One of the four students of the Lagos Model College, Igbonla, Epe, Lagos State, who were taken by unknown gunmen last Thursday, has fallen sick.

A source close to the family of the sick boy told reporters on Sunday that the kidnappers had called the family and told them about the boy’s situation, however they assured the boy’s parents that they were treating him.

“The men called on Saturday and Sunday and told us that one of the boys was sick. They said his temperature was high. They called one of the relations of the pupil and wanted to know the drug they could use for him. We have been begging them to let go of the pupil. But they assured the family that they had arranged someone to treat him. On the negotiation of ransom, the family members are begging them to reduce the N5m ransom. But the kidnappers have yet to agree” The source said.

One of the parents is begging for N1m, but the gunmen want them to add a little more. The sick boy is suspected to have malaria, although no test can be conducted in the hideout to ascertain that.”

Another relation of one of the abducted boys said they would hold another meeting with the school authorities on Monday, as the kidnappers had called them and reduced the ransom to N3.5m. The source added that the kidnappers kept on assuring the families that their children were in safe hands.

We will meet with the school authorities on Monday. They (the kidnappers) called in on Sunday and asked for N3.5m. We still begged them to go lower than that,” he added.

Last Thurday, the kidnappers comprising of five men and a woman, at about 8am, stormed the school and took the four pupils, a teacher and a vice-principal. The pupils have been identified as Isaac Adebisi, Okonkwo Emmanuel, Abu and Jeremiah, the English Language/Civic Education teacher, Lukman Oyerinde, and the Vice-Principal, A.O. Oyesola. They were taken away in a speedboat.

Benfica Increase Goncalo Guedes Price Tag 

Featured Image

Benfica have increased their asking price for reported Manchester United target Goncalo Guedes, according to A Bola.

The 19-year-old, who has also attracted attention from Atletico Madrid, is regarded as one of the most promising prospects in Portuguese football.

It was reported last month that he might be on his way to Valencia in January in a €25m (£22.6m) deal, but Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira is now looking for a bigger transfer fee.

He is looking to sell Guedes in a similar deal to the one which took Renato Sanches from Benfica to Bayern Munich earlier this year.

Sanches moved for an initial fee of €35m (£31.6m), although that figure could eventually rise to €80m (£72.2m) if all add-ons are activated.

Ryan Babel Opens Up On His Liverpool Exit 

Featured Image

​Former Liverpool winger Ryan Babel says he could have stayed in the Premier League when he left Anfield back in 2011.

Liverpool signed one of Europe’s most-promising forwards when they won the race to land Babel from Ajax in 2007, but the Dutchman only showed fleeting glimpses of his quality during his time on Merseyside.

He eventually joined Hoffenheim in January 2011, although he admits he could have continued his career in England.

Now on the books at La Liga outfit Deportivo La Coruna, Babel told AS: “When I left Liverpool I could have stayed in England, but I [would have] had to go to other teams that didn’t play football, only long balls.

“Well, I could have stayed, but I would not have been happy with the style of play, so I decided to go to Germany because Hoffenheim were a team that played well.”

Blessing Okagbare Reveals Reasons For Rio 2016 Failure

Featured Image

Nigeria’s superstar sprinter, Blessing Okagbare, has spoken out about her performance at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Okagbare, in a recent interview, blamed a change of coaches and nationwide pressure for her poor performance.

“The change actually slowed me down as I was used to the regime of my former American coach whose expertise made me win lots of races and jumps,” she said.

“The styles imputed in me during his reign from 2010 to 2014 made me a great athlete. At the London 2012 Olympics, my coach prepared me such that once I stand upright in a sprint, I will just be flying. That was when I ran 100 metres at 10.79 seconds. I was good to win a medal at the London 2012 Olympics, but the pressure was too much on me to help Nigeria at least win a single medal just for the taking.

Blessing Okagbare opens up on Rio 2016

“I tried my best but other determined athletes from other countries of the world put me down with their spectacular races in the 100m and 200 metres finals. I was primed to win but, it didn’t happen the way I expected.”

“With my average pace, some people rumoured that I was pregnant at Rio, but that was never the case. I was simply adjusting to the training regime of my new coach. The human body is not a machine,” she added.

“I had pains in my knee, so I had to drop the desire to do long jump which my coach believes I would win a medal for my country,” Okagbare stated.

She also had plenty of criticism for the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN), whom she accused of hiring spent American athletes.

“It is sad that the Athletic Federation of Nigeria, AFN, kept recruiting American athletes who are not good enough to win for America and neither can they beat me in my events.

“It is total waste of resources. Athletes that should be recruited must be the ones who can win international laurels for Nigeria.

“The AFN should pay more attention to grooming Nigerian young talents instead of wasting hard earned resources on unproductive American athletes,” she concluded.

BREAKING: NYSC Denies ‘Slashing’ Corps Members’ Allowance To N14,800

The management of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) has on Monday reacted with a denial to reports swirling on social media that corps members’ allowance has been slashed by 25% – from N19, 800 to N14, 800.

READ ALSO: 65 Corpers Repeat Service Year As NYSC Observes ‘Low-Key’ Passing Out Ceremony Nationwide

A statement, which was published on its approved Facebook accounts today, October 10, read:

The Management of the NYSC hereby refutes the content of a mischievous information circulating in the social media to the effect that corps members’ allowance has been slashed by 25%.

In the first instance, the document quoted a “Brigadier General Bamidele Oluwami” the purported NYSC Director General as the source of its information.

The scheme vehemently dissociate itself from this wicked falsehood meant to create confusion in the polity. The Director General of the NYSC is Brigadier General SZ Kazaure and he never made any comment as claimed by the brains behind the damaging publication.

Management hereby categorically state that corps members allowance remains N19800 and not reduced to N14800 as wickedly portrayed by the social media release. For the avoidance of doubts, we unequivocally restate our unalloyed commitment to the welfare of all corps members at all times.

Corps members and the public should therefore ignore this misleading information and go about their duties lawfully without fear.
