BBOG Issues 7-Day Ultimatum To FG To Secure Release Of Dapchi Girls

Featured Image

The Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) Advocacy group has issued a seven day ultimatum to the Federal Government to secure the release of the abducted schoolgirls in Dapchi, Yobe state.

Boko Haram Jihadists Attack Girls School In Yobe

In February, a total of 110 students of Government Girls Science Technical College, Dapchi, were declared missing after Boko Haram insurgents attacked their school.

BBOG Issues 7-Day Ultimatum To FG To Secure Release Of Dapchi GirlsThe incident happened four years after the insurgents kidnapped 276 female students of Government Secondary School, Chibok.

Boko Haram: Here Are Names Of The 105 Missing Dapchi Girls

The group, led by former minister of education, Oby Ezekwesili, said in a statement that if the government failed to respond it will scale up its advocacy.

In the statement issued on Tuesday, the group said Femi Falana, human rights lawyer, will lead a legal team to sue the federal government “for the negligence that has led to the abductions”.

The group also posed some questions to the federal government, including:

“How is it that nearly four years since the abduction of our Chibok girls, we are faced with yet another similar tragedy by the repeat abductions of schoolgirls in the Dapchi girls’ tragedy?

“How is it possible that a terrorist group that we were informed to have been completely defeated was able to abduct 110 Dapchi girls.

“How were the school and community left to be vulnerable to this tragedy? What happened to the Safe Schools Initiative that was signed on by the Federal Government in 2014 and to which it committed $10m alongside other donations by the several donors, including the international community?

“Why was there a deliberate attempt by the federal government to cover up the abduction through false reports and claims of rescue in the immediate aftermath of the abduction?

“On what basis was the military withdrawn from Dapchi? Why was there no immediate response to the abduction of the Dapchi girls? What happened to early warning signal system as part of security architecture for areas like Dapchi in the theatre of war? We ask for #TheTruthAndNothingButTheTruth.

“How was it that the terrorists carried out their activity for hours unchallenged by forces of the FG? Can we not assume a connivance between the abductors and all those in the military and security command with responsibilities for the Dapchi, Yobe state area?

“How was it that 110 children were transported in a convoy of vehicles for more than twenty-four hours over distance of hundreds of kilometres without their abductors encountering any Nigerian military or police security roadblocks? Why was there no air surveillance by the Nigeria Air Force which is still at the battlefront? If any, how did the Nigerian Air Force fail to track the movement of the terrorists motorcade as they made away with our schoolgirls?

“What happened to the recently commissioned UAVs said to have been procured for such tracking purpose? What happened to our Intelligence assets – satellite links & military aircraft – that were procured to prevent & abort such scale of elaborate attack by terrorists?”

Buhari Writes Senate, Rejects Amended Timetable For 2019 Elections

Featured Image

President Muhammadu Buhari has penned the Senate, declining assent to the new amendment to the Electoral Act regarding election sequence in the 2019 general elections.

The president’s rejection was contained in a letter read Tuesday on the floor of the upper legislative chamber by Senate President Bukola Saraki.

A similar letter was also sent to the Speaker of House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.

Buhari’s letter read, “Pursuant to Section 58(4) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), I hereby convey to the Senate, my decision, on 3rd March 2018, to decline Presidential Assent to the Electoral Amendment Bill 2018 recently passed by the National Assembly.

“Some of my reasons include the following:

“The amendment to the sequence of elections in Section 25 of the principal act, may infringe upon the constitutionally guaranteed discretion of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to organize, undertake and supervise elections provided in Section 15(A) of the third statue to the Constitution;

“The amend to Section 138 of the principal act to delete two crucial grounds upon which an election may be challenged by candidates, unduly limits the rights of candidates in elections to a free and fair electoral review process;

“The amendment to Section 152 Subsection 325 of the Principal Act may raise Constitutional issues over the competence of the National Assembly to legislate over local government elections.

“Please accept Distinguished Senators, the assurances of my highest consideration.

Yours Sincerely.”

With the rejection of amendments by the president, the next option left for the National Assembly is to override the president’s veto or let the act remain as it is.

BREAKING: Buhari Sacks Paul Boroh, Coordinator Of Amnesty Programme

Featured Image

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the dismissal of the coordinator of the presidential amnesty programme for former Niger Delta militants, Paul Boroh.

Boroh’s dismissal was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday afternoon by Femi Adesina, the special adviser to the president on media and publicity.

In the statement, Adesina said Charles Dokubo, a professor, has been appointed to replace Boroh.

The statement read: “Prof Dokubo is currently director of research and studies at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs. He holds a PhD in strategic studies from the University of Bradford, United Kingdom, and hails from Abonema, Akuku-Toru local government of Rivers state.”

The statement said Babagana Monguno, national security adviser, has been directed to probe the activities of the amnesty office since 2015 when Boroh was appointed.

“Meanwhile, the president directs the national security adviser (NSA) to carry out a full investigation into the activities of the Amnesty Programme from 2015 to date, especially allegations of financial impropriety and other acts that are allegedly detrimental to the objectives of the Presidential Amnesty Programme,” the statement added.

Boroh, a retired brigadier general, was appointed on July 28, 2015.

He replaced Kingsley Kuku, the former Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Niger Delta who also doubled as Coordinator of the Amnesty Programme.

At the time of his appointment, he was charged with the speedy resolution of hitches in the implementation of the amnesty programme, such as the non-payment of outstanding allowances to ex-militants.

Reps Recall Abdulmumini Jibrin From Suspension – 17 Months After ‘Budget Padding’ Scandal

Featured Image

The House of Representatives has recalled its former Chairman, Committee on Appropriation, Mr. Abdulmumini Jibrin, from suspension.

It may be recalled that Jibrin was suspended on September 28, 2016 for 180 legislative days and has since been out for over 17 months following a scandal on Budget padding.

His suspension however lasted for more than the stipulated 180 legislative days which is equivalent to one year.

His recall came on the back of a letter he personally signed allegedly apologising to the House.

Although the letter wasn’t fully read before the parliament, the speaker paraphrased it by saying he has apologised and met all the conditions given to him.

“He has fulfilled all the conditions by writing this letter and so he is free to resume his legislative duties whenever he wants, if he so wishes”

As at then, Jibril had accused Dogara and other principal officers of the house of allegedly attempting to pad N30 billion projects into the budget.

He said his “inability to allow” the said projects into the budgets “became an issue” with the lawmakers.

He had also alleged that the speaker, deputy speaker, chief whip and minority leader had allocated “billions of wasteful projects running over 20 billion to their constituencies”.

The House had demanded apology from Jibrin but he vowed never to do so.

WAEC Releases First Diet Of 2018 WASSCE | Withholds 1021 Results

Featured Image

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) on Tuesday announced the release of its January/February series of the 2018 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

The council’s Head of National Office, Mr. Olu Adenipekun who announced the release in Lagos, said results of 1,021 candidates were, however, withheld.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the approval to introduce and conduct the additional diet in the country and other national offices of the five-member countries was given at the council’s 65th annual general meeting in March 2017.

The introduction of the series for Private candidates, brings to the three, the number of examinations conducted by the council each year.

According to Adenipekun, the results were withheld in connection with various reported cases of examination malpractice by the affected candidates.

He said the cases were being investigated and that reports of the investigations would be presented to the appropriate committee of the council in due course, for consideration.

“The committee’s decisions will be communicated to the affected candidates,’’ Adenipekun said.

According to him, 11,721 candidates registered for the examination, while 11,307 actually sat for the test.

Giving a breakdown of statistics of candidates’ performance at the examination, the HNO said that 8,113 candidates obtained credits and above in two subjects.

He noted that 6,375 others obtained credits and above in three subjects, while 4,762 candidates obtained credits and above in four subjects.

Adenipekun also said that 3,263 candidates obtained credits and above in five subjects, while 2,010 others obtained credits and above in six subjects.

“A total 1,937 candidates, representing 17.13 per cent, obtained the minimum of credits in five subjects and above, including English Language and Mathematics.

“The percentage of candidates in this category in the WASSCE in 2017 was 26.01 per cent.

“From the statistics of performance, it is safe to say that candidates performance is not satisfactory, compared to what obtained in the same diet for private candidates in 2016 and 2017.

“We, therefore, wish to plead with candidates to take this examination seriously,’’ he said.

The HNO, however, expressed satisfaction at the response of Nigerians to the newly-introduced diet.

He added that it was encouraging and would propel the council to expand to more cities and towns.

Adenipekun said the introduction of the diet would also stem the tendency by some candidates to get involved in examination malpractice.

He explained that the additional diet for private candidates was part of council’s contributions to the efforts of governments at all levels to expand the educational opportunities in the West African sub-region.

Adenipekun urged candidates who sat for the examination to check the details of their performance on the council’s results website.

25 Killed, 11 Houses Razed In Fresh Herdsmen Attacks On Plateau

Featured Image

Suspected herdsmen have killed no less than 25 people in Dundu Village of Kwall district in Bassa local government area of Plateau state.

This is just as scores of houses were reportedly set ablaze in the latest round of attacks in the state which President Muhammadu Buhari recently visited.

It was learnt that the killings took place on Monday evening; a day set aside for the mass burial of victims killed by suspected Fulani herdsmen in several communities in Bassa LGA last week. The event was disrupted by the fresh attack which left has 25 persons dead.

Confirming the casualty rate, the spokesperson of Miango Youth Development Association, Lawrence Zongo, said:

“Very sad! Again, Fulani terrorists killed 25 persons in Dundu Village of Kwall District in Bassa LGA of Plateau State.

“Eleven houses were razed down. The villagers were attacked around 7pm yesterday (Monday). Among the victims were three children and two women.

“Others, including two women, are now receiving treatment in a nearby hospital in the community. This is too bad, as we are planning the mass burial of the last attack.

“So far, we have more than 500 Internally Displaced Persons camp. International organisations should please come to our aid.”

Also, the spokesman of Plateau police command, Matthias Tyopev, confirmed the attack but could not give details.

He said Adie Undie, Plateau commissioner of police, had ordered Taiwo Jebiyisu, deputy commissioner of police (operations), to visit the scene for an on-the-spot assessment.

His words: “There was an attack yesterday (Monday) in Bassa; as such, the commissioner of police, Plateau state command, has directed the DCP Taiwo Jebiyisu, a deputy commissioner of police in charge of the department of operations, to go to the scene of crime for an on-the-spot assessment.”

“As such, he is there now. The information is sketchy. I shall inform you when the details of the attack are made available.”

Chelsea Showing Interest In AC Milan’s Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma

Featured Image

Chelsea are monitoring Gianluigi Donnarumma’s situation at AC Milan, according to Corriere dello Sport.

The 19–year-old Italy international goalkeeper is understood to be an option for the Blues if Thibaut Courtois leaves Stamford Bridge.

Real Madrid have been heavily linked with a move for Courtois, whose current contract at Chelsea expires in 2019.

Talks over an extension have yielded little success so far, raising speculation that the Blues will be forced to cash in on the 25-year-old this summer.

Donnarumma was eager to leave Milan last summer and is again expected to push for an exit when the transfer window reopens following a breakdown in the relationship between his agent Mino Raiola and the club’s hierarchy.

However, Chelsea could face competition for his signature from Paris Saint-Germain, who are also in the market for a new shot-stopper.

Featured Image

Jose Mourinho has told Real Madrid to forget about the prospect of signing Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

Real Madrid have held a long-standing interest in David De Gea and were close to taking him to the Bernabeu in the summer of 2015, only for an admin error to scupper the deal at the 11th hour.

However, with club president Florentino Perez reportedly planning a major overhaul of his squad this summer, Madrid are understood to again be on the lookout for a new keeper as a replacement for Keylor Navas.

De Gea is thought to be their number one target, while Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois has also been touted as a potential option, but Mourinho has suggested that De Gea will not be leaving Old Trafford this summer.

“I think he will stay. I don’t know what Real Madrid’s intentions are, but if I were them, I would think of another player,” Mourinho told reporters.

#BBNaija 2018 Day 43: A Different Tobi In The Making?

Featured Image

The three times winner of the #bbnaija Head of House title, Tobi seems to be a different person from the one we saw at the inception of season three as he has become slow to his promise of bringing lots of fun to the #BBNaija House.

It appears he is still riding on the wave of his very first appointment as Head of House and hasn’t gone out of his way to spice things up, perhaps because he has won the crown, a record three times.

When Cee-C volunteered to be his co-regent during the first week, it was his friend and foe that he had unknowingly attracted. Tobi seemed to be as equally annoyed by her constant drama, but was yet irresistibly drawn to all that she is, including her flaws and her charm.

Cee-C and Tobi have had their share of shouting matches in the #bbnaija House, to the chagrin of the Housemates. After all, there was only so much prodding that Cee-C could do to get him to woo the House to her side.

At the beginning, it seems like Angel, Tobi was despised for his coarse and insensible handling of the different personalities in the #bbnaija House. He was buff and displayed bullying tendencies at the beginning, as he once publicly said he couldn’t understand how a man could look like Lolu.

His military-style workout mania also didn’t win him any friends, as Ifu Ennada complained that he enjoyed making people feeling bad.

As much as he saw eye-to-eye with Angel, Tobi dreaded Teddy A, whom he saw as serious competition and Nominated him for Eviction at the first chance he got.

It’s only very recently that Tobi seem to have struck a friendship with Miracle, but only after the latter had also won the #bbnaija Head of House title. Of late, Tobi has started consulting with Anto, who had left him at loss for words until then.

With the pairing with Alex dismantled, it remains to be seen whether Tobi will get out of his leisurely and complacent ways in the #bbnaija House and free himself off distractions.

Donna Ogunnaike’s unconventional poetry, dance and art installation project, Strelitzia, made a big splash at the Lagos Theatre Festival when it debuted last year.

Since then, Ogunnaike has performed Strelitzia at the World Cultures Festival in Hong Kong as Nigeria’s sole theatre entry. Strelitzia is back to the Lagos Theatre Festival this year (27, February to 4, March) as one of the curated shows.

The title is taken from a plant of South African origin. After blossoming from their buds the bright colors, and shape of the petals of the Strelitia, resemble the plumage of a beautiful bird.

In the same spirit, Ogunnaike with Strelitzia, asks her audience, called ‘’story bearers’’ at the end of the installation, to unburden themselves, leave behind some of the hurt, pen something on a wall of thoughts and exit through a separate door than the one they came in from. That way, they go into the outside world ready to blossom. Hopefully.

It is a lot to ask, or even to expect from any one person or show, but Strelitzia at least puts in the work that leads to the making of such a request in the end. Strelitzia is a maze of memories, each one housing human emotions that anyone who has ever lived in Nigeria- or lived at all- is sure to relate to.

The booming male voice of the guide welcomes story bearers into the maze, first into a room that is essentially a pictorial history of Nigeria. Old newspaper clippings and pictures of political figures like Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Obafemi Awolowo and Fela Kuti take pride of place on the walls. Food items, music appliances and jingles from ancient adverts, once as popular as the national anthem conspire to invoke the spirit of nostalgia.

Under the timely guidance of the light bearer, Strelitzia uncovers a wide range of memories, many of which may have been conveniently forgotten. A young man has to deal with the loss of his mother, another wants desperately to wake up from a night mare. The latter performance features a young semi-nude man writhing in agony and urging story bearers in a tear streaked voice, to get on with their journey.

Out of the blue, comes the sensual memory, featuring a female dancer moving sensuously and energetically behind a transparent sheet to Zayn Malik’s Pillow Talk. According to Ogunnaike, the position of this particular memory is quite deliberate as the idea is to replicate how sexual thoughts just pop out of the human mind, seemingly of their own volition.

Haunting, melodious live music is supplied by a guitarist/vocalist who ushers story bearers gently into the pages of a diary as assembled by the poet, Ogunnaike. Within these pages, Ogunnaike makes effective use of spoken word to narrate stories of love and loss, war and redemption. A cocksure young man learns for the first time, the bitterness of heartbreak. A beautiful intern is betrayed by a friend she holds in high esteem. None of these monologues are subtle, all are meant to take advantage of the pliant story bearers- because who wouldn’t be after going through the previous rooms within the maze?- and badger them into submission.

Strelitzia

The purpose however isn’t to break but bend, as Ogunnaike soon assures her captive audience of the beauty in their individuality. By the time she points to the wall, she has arrived at a post-cathartic moment and only the hardest of hearts can resist the chance to symbolically lay off some of their burden.

The experience of Strelitzia is at once singular, yet collective. It aims for a higher level of artistry and seeks to heal, even if for the briefest of moments.

Whether it succeeds in doing so is a personal journey into person, place and time that story bearers have to come to on their own. Some may arrive at the common destination, many won’t but if there is one thing Strelitzia teaches, it is that the journey is more important than the destination.

Benue Killings: I’m Surprised Police Chief Disobeyed My Directive – Buhari

Featured Image

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday expressed shock that the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, disobeyed his directives to stay in Benue until the blood-letting between farmers and herdsmen was resolved.

The President, who made this known while speaking at a meeting with leaders and stakeholders of the state during his assessment visit to the state, also said his government is deeply worried about  incessant attacks on Benue’s rural communities and vowed to end the menace very soon.

In the wake of the public outcry that met the murder of over 70 persons by suspected herdsmen, the president had instructed the IGP to relocate to the state until the carnage was contained.

The police boss had reportedly spent less than 24 hours in the state before leaving – an action that sparked outrage from Nigerians because the president failed to reprimand him.

However, in his meeting with farmers, herdsmen, government officials and other stakeholders in Makurdi, Buhari denied insinuations that he was not interested in what was happening to Benue State.

“I cannot overlook the killings in Benue or any other part of Nigeria. I cannot do that. I am genuinely worried about the attacks in Benue and we are doing everything to end them,” he said.

He said the insecurity in some states was a major concern to his government and that concerted efforts were being made to restore normalcy to every part of the country.

Mr. Buhari said he was surprised that the IGP did not spend 24 hours in Benue when he directed him to relocate to the state and remain there till peace was restored.

“I am getting to know this in this meeting. I am quite surprised,” he said.

Daily Post quoted Buhari as saying:

“The problem in Benue started worsening because the IGP refused to follow my instruction. What I did was to call him (IGP) and give him the directive. I didn’t know he moved here (Benue State) and didn’t spend much time … and then moved to Nasarawa. It’s only now that I am knowing that.”

“But I know I dispatched him here. It is wrong to think I have abandoned the people of Benue. I still have at heart.”

“I thank the governor and the people of the state for receiving me.”

“We have deployed security agencies to make sure the clashes between farmers and end as soon as possible.”

He, however said he quietly reprimanded the Inspector General of Police over the killings in Benue State.

Presidential spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina quoted Buhari as saying that he was not in the habit of publicly rebuking his appointees as many would desire.

The president said he preferred to quietly “read the riot act” as he did to the Inspector General of Police when the Benue attacks began.

He disclosed that he even shared the IGP’s security report on the Benue crisis with Senators George Akume and Barnabas Gemade from the state.

He appealed to leaders of various groups in the state to convince their constituents that the Federal Government was doing its best to end the recurring attacks by armed herdsmen in various parts of the country.

#BBNaija 2018 Day 43: The House In Disarray

Featured Image

Day 43 saw the entire #bbnaija house in disarray, laying credence to the common saying that ‘change is the only constant’, even as the housemates proved this in every way.

In what seemed like a complete change, big brother made it known that the pairs have been dissolved and the #bbnaija Housemates get to stand alone and balance their own bridges.

They were all clearly hit hard by the almost completely random pairing. With each focused on their individual games and low key backdoor plotting; having to tone it down and share both the grace and the disgrace threw them off and put them in some sort of comfort zones from which they refused to exit in the past few weeks.

The weaker of the #bbnaija housates depended on their strong links and this whole dynamic was the reason for the internal wars the Housemates have been having. Now that they’ve been freed from the burden of being ‘their brothers’ keepers’, the Nomination promises to be more strategic than empathetic.

While it is hard to tell whether the fast pace at which the Nominations took place is owed to the #bbnaija Housemates’ release from the pair prison or to the fact that Biggie wanted to exhibit control, all the housemates seemed prepared for it as they nominated their adversaries except for Rico swavey.

Seeing as the process wasn’t coordinated, the results came as a shocker and the #bbnaija Housemates were finally given the right of passage to reveal what they thought of each other through their nominations.

The results saw more than three thirds of the entire #bbnaija House closer to the chopping boarder. All but Head of House Nina and Rico Swavey are up for Eviction. This is how the nominations went down:

Anto nominated Teddy A + Alex, Rico Swavey went for Cee-C + Miracle, Cee-C chose Anto + Alex, while Lolu went for Rico Swavey + Bambam.

Bambam on her part chose Tobi + Anto, Tobi nominated Teddy A + Bambam and Alex chose Bambam + Cee-C. Teddy A went for Tobi + Miracle, Miracle chose Cee-C + Lolu and Nina completed things by choosing Bambam + Lolu. Big brother also made it known that there will be No Save and Replace for the week.

The #bbnaija Head of House privileges has also been sifted and awarded in very small portions. Instead of the normal Save and Replace, reigning queen Nina had to make do with just the Immunity. She owed this to the Chance Card she picked, ‘Immunity from Nominations Only – No Save and Replace’.

The games have finally begun.

Nigeria’s currency naira further remained stable at the close of trade on Monday, March 12, selling at N363 against the United States dollar at the Bureau De change (BDCs) and parallel market in Lagos.

At the BDC, the naira was sold at N500 to the Pound Sterling and closed at N442 against the Euro.

However, the naira against the two currencies went for N501 and N445 respectively at the parallel market.

Also, trading at the Import and Export foreign exchange window, the naira closed at N360.47 to the dollar.

It also exchanged at N305.75 to the dollar at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) window.

Nigerians Agonise Over Dirty, Shortage Of Smaller Naira Notes

A trader, Mr Shinkafi Aliu, Managing Director, Alibarika Bureau De Change said the stability could be attributed to the positive growth in the nation’s external reserves.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) had in its resolve to guarantee liquidity in the market, injected the sum of $355.43 million into the Retail Secondary Market Intervention Sales (SMIS) on Friday.

Nigeria’s apex bank also said that the country’s External Reserves is steadily growing and currently stands at $46bn.

Okoroafor stated this in a statement on Sunday that the reserves grew by about $3.2bn between February and March 2018.

#BBNaija 2018 Day 43: Housemates Regard Friendship More Than The Game

Featured Image

In what has appeared to be a regular show in the #bbnaija house, the Housemates gathered in the lounge, awaiting the Live Show and were fully aware of the fact that they would have to say goodbye to two of their own.

It however seems that some of the #bbnaija housemates are yet to understand the fact that Big brother is a game and there are bound to be evictions.

During the Live show, Ebuka asked the #bbnaija Housemates, particularly the ones that have one form of romantic attachment or the other about how they felt and what their priorities were.

Teddy A in his response was obviously beating around the bush but he made it quite clear in not so many words that the relationship between him and Bambam was an ‘in-house thing’ and therefore couldn’t predict what would happen outside.

Bambam’s silent reaction gave her away a little bit. It seemed as though she was disappointed by his bluntness and wanted more out of their ‘situationship’.

Nina on the other hand labelled Miracle as ‘one’ of her priorities and made it clear that she still had her eye on the prize, ‘still’; and the big one, Alex.

Alex was literally hysterical about Leo’s exit; much more than the Evictee himself. Besides the fact that he had been open and honest about their ‘friendship’, Alex still felt that he understood her the most and therefore deserved to take centre stage, while completely throwing off her game.

Looking at the #bbnaija Housemates’ overall behaviour during the week, it’s obvious that the Eviction scare was to them a mere legend; as they saw it as a story passed on to them by people who had previously experienced it.

It appeared the story had little effect on them, at least not the desired one. It is difficult to say whether the #bbnaija Housemates have decided to play their games neutrally and take each day as it comes or there is a general lack of strategy.

Moreover, there seems to be an air of relaxation as the #bbnaija Housemates seem to have thrown away the competitive armours, if they had any.

Yet another pair has gone and with the housemates left to their individual games, none of them can blame another for their downfall. This is a game and the sooner the #bbnaija Housemates realise this and treat it as such, the better.

Man Allegedly Defiles 9-Year-Old Girl With N10 Biscuits

Featured Image

A 52-year-old man, Gabriel Olaniyan, has been arraigned before an Ibadan Magistrate’s Court in Iyaganku on Monday, March 12, after he was being accused of defiling a nine-year-old girl after seducing her with N10 biscuits on her way home from an Arabic school.

In a charge, number mi/37c/2018, the accused was arraigned on one count of having carnal knowledge of a minor.

The prosecutor, Mrs. Folake Ewe, had told the court that Olaniyan, who was jobless, committed the crime on March 1, 2018 around 5pm at the Alapafon area of Ibadan.

She further added that the offence is contrary to and punishable under Section 218 of the Criminal Code Cap. 38 Vol. II, Laws of Oyo State of Nigeria, 2000.

Speaking in admittance, Olaniyan said the act was a mistake on his part.

While delivering judgment on the matter, the Chief Magistrate, Mrs. N. J. Ogunbona, asked the accused if he committed the crime for ritual purposes before ordering him to be remanded in prison pending legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions.  She then adjourned the case till April 5, 2018.

The victim’s father, Adeleke, said he had separated from her mother and that his new wife had been taking care of the minor.

#BBNaija 2018 Day 43: A Shattered Alex

Featured Image

Alex has been one of the most exciting #bbnaija housemate in the Double Wahala House, as she has brought joy, youthfulness and her playful self to the game. Her childlike personality has allowed her to always stay true to herself, and never find herself in situations she found hard to accept.

While it is true that she is a very emotional person, she alsp possesses the ability to have a hearty laugh that can infect everyone around her. Alex’s colourful hairstyles and electric smile made her impossible to miss, and incredibly hard to not get attached to.

When Alex entered the #bbnaija House, she rocked a green short hairstyle and blue lipstick and made no attempt whatsoever to hold her sharp tongue.

With her seemingly no-nonsense attitude, she has never hesitated to put people in their place. Her altercation with Cee-C and Princess proved that she could hold her own against anyone.

Having equally hot-headed Housemates in the #bbnaija house has made it difficult for her as she has had to struggle with her temper on a number of occasions. It was not until Biggie paired her with Leo that another side of her emerged.

Despite the fact that thechemistry between her and Leo lit up the screen, theirs was quite an odd relationship. Leo had made it no secret that he found her too immature for his liking, and acted more like a protective older brother whose calming presence reassured her. However, things took a turn, and their romance soon blossomed.

Alex was the young, feisty girl in the #bbnaija House, and it is only Leo who had the ability to tame her confrontational nature. Both housemates have locked lips several times, slept in the same bed and were practically glued to each other whilst in the House.

The eviction of Leo on day 42 has however left her in shambles, as she cried her way into the night and alsp early in the morning. While there ismuch more to Alex than what meets the eye, we wait to see if she will be able to rise and play the game with Leo gone.
