Nigerian Man Gets Life Imprisonment For Defiling 12-Year-Old Girl

Featured Image

An Igbosere High Court sitting in Lagos state, on Monday convicted and sentenced a 28-year-old man, Kingsley Inyang, to life imprisonment for defiling a 12-year-old girl.

In his ruling, the presiding judge, Justice Sedoten Ogunsanya convicted and found the accused guilty of defiling the girl, a junior secondary school (JSS) two pupil, contrary to Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Daily Trust reports that during his trial which lasted for a year and three months, Justice Ogunsanya held that the Lagos State prosecution team led by Mr Adebayo Haroun proved its case beyond reasonable doubt.

The judge found that Inyang’s defence was inconsistent with the testimony of his girlfriend, who stated that on the day of the incident, he spent only 15 minutes with her, contrary to Inyang’s claim that he was with her the whole day.

Inyang, at 16, Adetunde Arogundade Street, Fagba, a Lagos suburb, was arraigned on March 3, 2017.

The prosecution had told the court that he defiled the girl, who is his church member, in his home on July 26, 2015.

He had pleaded not guilty and was admitted to bail.

However, in her narration, during the trial, the girl told the court that the first time Inyang defiled her was on a Sunday evening after a fellowship service, following which he threatened to assault her if she told anyone.

Three days later, as she and her younger brother passed his house on their way home from bible study, he beckoned on her again.

“He sent my brother outside and forced me to make love to him and said that I should not let anybody know, otherwise he was going to beat me,” she said.

“I Regret The Legal Tussle I Had With My Former Record Label” – Rapper Vector

Featured Image

Nigerian rapper, Olanrewaju Ogunmefun popularly known as Vector has expressed his regrets over the nasty feud he has with his former record label, YSG Entertainment.

In 2014, the rapper had a messy legal tussle with the management of YSG Entertainment which led his inability to release any music project to the public sphere.

In a recent interview with Punch, Vector wish he had handled things differently and shouldn’t have gone into such career halting feud with the record company.

About his regrets, Vector said:-

“To be honest with you, the only reason I was taken to court was because I was popular or becoming popular. I must have mismanaged information on my part as well.

I hate the fact that it slowed down my music and I lost money too. But I have learnt to try to be more patient and understanding with people.

You cannot fight with people forever regardless of what could have happened. I have reached out to my former label and we have spoken.”

While speaking about the things he lost, he said:-

“Everything happens for a reason and I am grateful for my present position. Everyone regrets things; I regret things too but I just don’t dwell on them for too long.

I will be stupid to tell you that I didn’t regret something that escalated to the extent that I could not make music for a year or so.Of course, I had regrets but I never let it drag me down.

I took all the money I had and invested it in a studio.”

Swansea have confirmed the appointment of Graham Potter as the club’s new manager.

The 43-year-old has signed a three-year contract after leaving Swedish club Ostersunds and will bid to guide the recently-relegated Welsh club back to the Premier League.

“Swansea City are delighted to announce that Graham Potter has been appointed as the club’s new manager,” a club statement read.

“Potter has (on Monday) signed a three-year contract at the Liberty Stadium after leaving Swedish club Ostersunds to take charge of the Swans.”

Potter, who represented the likes of West Brom, Stoke and Birmingham during his playing days, took over Ostersunds in December 2010 and guided them from the fourth tier to the top division in Sweden.

He led them into the Europa League last season after winning the Swedish Cup, reaching the last 32 before losing 4-2 on aggregate to Arsenal.

Swansea confirmed they had agreed compensation for Potter and two of his backroom staff, assistant manager Billy Reid and recruitment chief Kyle Macaulay, last week before announcing the deal on Monday.

Graham Potter told the club website that ‘wasn’t desperate’ to leave Sweden and was ‘happy’ at Ostersunds, but was convinced that Swansea was the right move for him.

He said: ‘It’s a chance to start again. We know how frustrating the last few years have been, but hopefully the relegation will be seen in a few years’ time as the best thing that ever happened to the club.

‘We will try our best and work hard every day to give the supporters a team they can feel proud of; they can connect with and see are trying to improve.

‘I had an amazing journey at Ostersunds from a personal and professional perspective. People talked about me coming back to the UK quite often, but it was always about the right opportunity.’

Potter also claimed there are a similarities between Swansea and Ostersunds as he aims to create a new ‘Swansea way’ of playing.

He said: ‘It’s about trying to build a football club identity that people can be proud of and can connect with. It’s not just about what happens on the pitch, but also getting that feeling of pride, togetherness and connectivity with the local community.

‘Long-term it’s about building a sustainable club that people are proud of and that can function at the highest level for as long as possible. I know the supporters will get behind the team – they always have here.’

#ThisisNigeria: Muslim Group Soft-Pedals On Suing Falz, Reveals New Strategy

Featured Image

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) on Monday, June 11, said it will no longer take legal action against Folarin ‘Falz’ Falana over his controversial ‘This is Nigeria’ video.

Last week, the Muslim group had issued the artiste a seven-day ultimatum for the withdrawal of the video and had also demanded an apology.

WATCH VIDEO: Falz – This Is Nigeria

The video featured, among other things, hijab-wearing female choreographers dancing ‘shaku-shaku’ and a Fulani man appearing to behead an individual.

However, in a statement it issued today, MURIC said:

“In deference to pleas made by well-meaning Nigerians, we have resolved to drag the artist to government agencies that are responsible for censoring films and videos,” it said in the statement signed by Ishaq Akintola, MURIC director. 

“Our office has since been inundated with solidarity visits, while our telephone lines have been flooded with a deluge of calls from members, friends, well-wishers, journalists and other concerned Nigerians, majority of whom are of the Islamic faith.

“In deference to pleas made by well-meaning Nigerians, in order to keep faith with our avowed motto (Dialogue, Not Violence) and to further confirm that MURIC is a listening, mature and responsible organisation committed to promoting peace in Nigeria, the Think-Tank resolved to drag the artist to government agencies saddled with the responsibility of censoring films and videos.

“It is not a U-turn but a sudden change in tactics.”

The group said the new move “will have a more enduring impact not only on Falz but the entire industry” as it will make agencies sit up to their responsibilities.

Diddy Hails Falz’s ‘This Is Nigeria’ Video

“MURIC is no longer contemplating court action against Falz, neither are we demanding any apology from him or his management,” the statement added.

“The likely pecuniary gain in the event of a court validation of our claims does not interest us. We are no longer looking at Falz but at a larger picture.

“The matter will now go to those government agencies who are supposed to do their jobs in the first place. Instead of creating media tension and granting cheap popularity, this matter will now be handled by professionals who know what to do.

“In the interest of peace, law and order, we are calling on the National Film And Video Censors Board (NFVCB) to take up the matter from this moment.”

Furthermore, MURIC maintained that the video is “offensive and provocative,” saying it “portrays Fulanis (and Nigerian Muslims) as killers”.

‘Yahoo Yahoo Not Normal’ – Falz Sheds Light On ‘This Is Nigeria’ Video (WATCH)

It added that the video “is capable of igniting crisis and precipitating a general breakdown of law and order”.

“I’m looking forward to seeing him in a Stoke City shirt as I’m sure our supporters are too.

“Etebo is a very mobile, energetic midfielder and he’s a great age. He has played in the top divisions in Portugal and Spain and, of course, he’s heading into the World Cup with Nigeria which will be an amazing experience for him.”

Etebo, who started his career with Warri Wolves in his native Nigeria, joined Feirense in 2016 and made 45 league appearances, scoring seven goals during his time in Portugal.

Chief executive Tony Scholes added: “We are delighted Etebo has chosen to join Stoke City, becoming our first signing of the summer.

Inter Milan Interested In Signing Chelsea’s Davide Zappacosta

Featured Image

Inter Milan have reportedly identified Chelsea’s Davide Zappacosta as a potential transfer target this summer.

Davide Zappacosta only joined Chelsea from Torino last summer, but he struggled to earn a regular place in Antonio Conte’s starting XI and was limited to just 12 Premier League starts during the 2017-18 campaign.

Conte’s own future at Stamford Bridge remains uncertain, and Tuttosport reports that the manager’s position is also raising doubts over Zappacosta’s long-term future at the club.

Inter Milan are reportedly interested in the Italy international and would hope to initially take him to the San Siro on loan, with an option to buy at the end of the deal.

The 26-year-old would likely command a high transfer fee should he join permanently this summer, having only served a year of his four-year contract following his €28m (£24.7m) switch to Chelsea.

Roma’s Goalkeeper Alisson Wants His Future Resolved Before The World Cup Starts

Featured Image

Alisson Becker hopes to have his future resolved before Brazil begin their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on Sunday.

Alisson, 25, has been strongly linked with Liverpool, Real Madrid and Chelsea in recent months, though Roma have insisted he is not for sale.

Speaking after Brazil 3-0 victory over Austria on Sunday evening, Alisson wants to make a decision before the weekend otherwise it will have to wait until after the World Cup.

“There are options that we are working on, together with Roma and with respect for my club,” he told Globoesporte. “We’ll see if something happens during this week.

“I believe that it will all be resolved before the start of the World Cup, or at least that is what I hope. To be honest, I’ve left it all in the hands of my agents. If it doesn’t get resolved before our first game [of the World Cup], then we’ll talk about it after because during it, my mind is only going to be 100 percent focused on Brazil.”

Despite the transfer speculation, Alisson could yet sign a contract extension with Roma.

Taffarel, Brazil’s goalkeeping coach, says Alisson is more than happy to remain in Rome next season, and he would also be delighted if he does not switch clubs.

“He’s a goalkeeper who gives you tranquillity and I’m truly delighted about him. I’d say his greatest strength, other than his technical ability, is that he’s very relaxed, very intelligent with the way he plays — he’s mentally very strong,” Taffarel told Italy’s Radio Stereo. “He’s very happy at Roma — truly very, very happy. The voices about him moving are only rumours. If he stays at Roma, I’d be very happy.

“I don’t really like making lists of who is the best, but as far as I’m concerned, he’s one of the best in the world, together with [Manuel] Neuer, who I’ve always liked and is getting back now, and [David] De Gea, [Thibaut] Courtois.”

“Sven is interested in Caglar — there are concrete talks, and all that remains is for a fee to be agreed,” Dogru said.

“There are four Premier League sides who’ve made a move for Soyuncu that we are in talks with. There is also interest from Atletico Madrid in Spain and a few clubs in France, Italy and Germany.

“I’m not surprised by the interest — Caglar is a modern defender, he’s mobile, fast, dual-footed, has an excellent passing range.

“He’s tough and very physical, and I think the Premier League is ideal for a defender with his attributes.”

Soyuncu could become the second centre-back signed by Arsenal this summer, with a deal for Dortmund’s Sokratis Papastathopoulos expected to be finalised shortly.

#WorldCupWith360nobs: Robbie Williams To Perform At Opening Ceremony Despite Offending The Russians

Featured Image

Robbie Williams will open the 2018 World Cup in Moscow on Thursday, just two years after Russian newspapers called for him to be banned from performing there.

The British pop star will perform alongside Russian soprano Aida Garifullina at the Luzhniki Stadium before the hosts take on Saudi Arabia in the tournament opener.

His set list will likely include popular hits such as Angels and Let Me Entertain You, but one song which probably won’t be sung in front of Vladimir Putin is the 2016 single ‘Party Like a Russian’.

The track’s lyrics are full of stereotypes about violent Russian aristocrats and it caused a great deal of upset in Russia upon its release.

Many publications described the song as offensive and said he should never play in the country again.

Williams said: “I’m so happy and excited to be going back to Russia for such a unique performance. I’ve done a lot in my career, and opening the FIFA World Cup to 80,000 football fans in the stadium and many millions all over the world is a boyhood dream.

“We’d like to invite football and music fans to party with us in Russia, in the stadium, or to tune in their TVs a little earlier for an unforgettable show.”

Nigerians React As Donald Duke Declares to Contest Against Buhari In 2019

Featured Image

A high-profile candidate, Donald Duke, has announced his intention to contest Nigeria’s highest position with the current ruler in next year’s presidential election.

Duke, a former governor of Cross Rivers, made his intentions known while speaking on the topic ‘Nigeria In Clear and Present Danger’, at the annual Law dinner of the University of Nigeria, Anambra State on Friday (June 8)

His words: “I am putting myself forward for the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“I’m not going to sit back any longer and postulate. And I want each one of those young people there to be part of it. That’s why I urge them to go and get their voter’s card and be part of this society.

“Don’t be onlookers any longer, this is not a football match where you sit in the audience and cheer and grumble. Get unto the field and take part.

“I’m not going to sit back, I’m going to take part.”

Mr Duke who is currently a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was one of those who welcomed the Coalition For Nigeria Movement by former President Olusegun Obasanjo In February.

Bear in mind that after months of speculations, President Muhammadu Buhari on April 9, officially informed the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that he will be seeking the party nomination to fly the party flag in the 2019 presidential election.

But the ex-governor noted that although he had not chosen the platform he will be contesting on, he was convinced that it was time to make a move towards addressing Nigeria’s clear and present danger.

Meanwhile, Nigerians have taken to Twitter to speak on Mr Duke’s presidential ambition.

I Felt Victimised Over Tax Case By Madrid – Lionel Messi

Featured Image

Lionel Messi has revealed how he felt when he was faced with tax fraud charges for the first time.

Lionel Messi told Diario Sport that he felt “victimised” by Madrid [the Spanish tax authority and press, not Real Madrid].

Messi and his father were both found guilty of three counts of tax fraud totalling €4.7 million in 2016. Messi was handed a 21-month suspended sentence — which prosecutors in Spain later replaced with a fine — and ordered to pay a fine of €2m.

The first allegations against Messi surfaced in the summer of 2013, the year before the World Cup in Brazil, and he believes there was an orchestrated campaign against him at the time.

Referring only to “Madrid” — in reference to the press and central tax office in the Spanish capital — he suggests there was an “order to attack” him.

“I have been through some tough times, like the whole mess with the tax office,” he told Sport. “It was hard because of the way they attacked me and said things about me, my family, my dad, my people. I felt attacked from Madrid and it was hard.

“I felt victimised but I was lucky enough to have the backing of those close to me: of Barcelona, of Catalonia, of journalism [in Catalonia]. That kept me a little more calm.

“I think it was an order to attack me, to hit me and to take advantage of the moment of weakness we were in because of everything that was happening.

“That’s how it happened because it was Madrid. That’s how it was. I knew it. But even knowing it, it annoyed me and hurt me.”

Messi and his father were eventually charged two years ago after they were found to have used tax havens in Belize and Uruguay as well as shell companies in the UK and Switzerland to avoid paying taxes on earnings from player’s image rights between 2007-2009.

The Argentina international always plead ignorance, saying he was unaware of the significance of certain documents he had signed, but the court dismissed that defence.

During the process, which lasted for around three years, it was suggested Messi could even quit Barcelona in order to get out of Spain, where he felt persecuted.

“No,” he said when asked if the charges ever forced him to consider his Camp Nou future. “It was a difficult year [2013-14] because I had an injury, too. It was also the year of the World Cup in Brazil. It was a complicated process because they said a lot of things which were out of place.

“But I always had the support of my family, my wife, my kids… I isolated myself from everything that was going on and enjoyed being with them.”

Gerard Deulofeu Completes £11.5 Million Transfer From Barcelona To Watford

Featured Image

Premier League side Watford have announced the signing of Gerard Deulofeu from Barcelona in an £11.5m deal

Gerard Deulofeu spent the second half of last season on loan at Vicarage Road, helping them avoid being sucked into a relegation battle as they finished 14th in the table.

The 24-year-old – who has four Spain caps to his name – turned out seven times for Watford, and scored on his home debut in a 4-1 win over Chelsea in February.

“We are very pleased to welcome Gerard back to Vicarage Road and thank FC Barcelona for their part in concluding this deal,” said Watford chairman Scott Duxbury.

“Our ambition to succeed and grow in the Premier League remains as strong as ever.”

Deulofeu has been sent out to Everton, Sevilla and Milan over the past five years.

He made 17 appearances in all competitions for Barca last term, scoring two goals, but has struggled for regular playing time at the Nou Camp.

Fashola Pledges To Fix Damaged Mokwa-Jebba Bridge Within 72 Hours

Featured Image

The Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Raji Fashola, has promised that the collapsed bridge on Mokwa-Jebba road will be back in use within 72 hours.

The minister stated this on Sunday when he spoke with newsmen, shortly after he paid homage to the Emir of Zazzau, Shehu Idris in his palace.

Fashola had, before visiting the emir, inaugurated a new 60MVA/132/KV transformer to improve electricity supply in the city and its environs.

According to him, the ministry had deployed personnel from relevant agencies to provide measures that would ease traffic on the collapsed bridge at Mowo Junction, along Makwa-Jebba road for motorists within the next 72 hours.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) had on Sunday morning alerted motorists on the collapse of the bridge after Mowo Junction on the Mokwa-Jebba road, due to heavy rainfall.

The agency had said the bridge, which is 18 kilometres from Mokwa town in Niger State, caved-in, following a downpour which affected vehicular movement from both sides of the road.

However, Mr Fashola attributed the bridge’s collapse to “the hazards that come with weather changes.

“All over the world we see them, mudslide, hurricane, volcano, windstorm, damaging public infrastructure. So, Nigeria is not exempted.

“We know this will cause some discomfort to commuters, for which we apologise for. It is an emergency and we are treating it as such. We are responding.

“A year ago, I think also on the 10th of June, Tatabu bridge also collapseed as a result of rising water level and heavy rainfall and we responded.

“We have fixed and reconstructed a new bridge, which is bigger and better. We will do the same thing in Mokwa,” the minister said

The minister said the ministry had gained some experience in dealing with such situations.

“From our contractors to our staff, we know what to do and by the time I got aware of it early this morning, all our staff had started responding.

“It is very encouraging to me that we have built a team and a system that works.

“We have given instruction to our director in charge of North Central zone to move to the place and work with the controllers in Niger and Kwara states

“We have also given instruction to the Federal Road Safety Corps, the Corps Marshal is on top of that, helping to manage the traffic on the Federal High way and divert traffic, especially heavy duty trucks carrying fuel, food items to North and South through that road.

“There would be discomfort without a doubt, but we will manage it and make it better day by day and in a couple of days, it should be better,” the minister said .

He said the ministry had also contacted the leadership of oil workers and tanker drivers to explain to their members of what has happened and what the ministry was doing.

“Within the next 72 hours, I am sure, we will bring some stability and control to the place.

“The Zonal Director had our mandate to brief headquarters every 12 hours on what is going on, so that we can measure progress. So, there is nothing to panic about.

“This is an incident that has happened as a result of forces of nature. Rainfall destroys our infrastructure, but it is also a blessing to our farmers and fishermen,” he said.
