"The NYSC was constrained to 'dekit' Davido for violating the rules guiding conduct and activities in the camp.

"As a matter of fact, he absconded because he was away from the camp without permission. That prompted the Corps to issue him a query which was sent from Abuja. So, he is no longer a serving corps member," News gathers from a source with the NYSC.

Federal Government Dragged Dancing Senator, Adeleke To Court

The Federal Government has charged PDP candidate in the contentious Osun governorship election, Senator Ademola Adeleke (Osun West) and four others before the Federal High Court, Abuja with alleged examination malpractices.
Adeleke and others were accused, in a four-count charge filed in the name of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) of fraudulently registering as students of Ojo-Aro Community Grammar School, Ojo-Aro, Osun State to enable them sit for the National Examination Council (NECO) examination of June/July 2017.

Named with Adeleke, in the charge are: Sikiru Adeleke, Alhaji Aregbesola Mufutau (the principal of the school), Gbadamosi Thomas Ojo (school Registrar) and Dare Samuel Olutope (the teacher).

Adeleke was absent when the case was called yesterday.

His lawyer, Alex Izinyon (SAN), told the court that his client took ill on Friday and had been stooling.

Izinyon said a copy of a medical report was available to that effect. He said Adeleke suddenly took ill at the weekend, but was getting better.

He sought a postponement of the arraignment.

Prosecution lawyer, Simon Lough, an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), said he was in receipt of the medical report on the health condition of the 1st defendant (Adeleke).

He said he was not averse to a short adjournment as sought by Izinyon. He said the defendants were released on the administrative bail granted them by the police.

Lawyers to the other defendants also agreed to a short adjournment, following which Justice I. E. Ekwo adjourned till October 31 for arraignment.

Justice Ekwo said: “The prosecution is ordered to ensure the defendants are in court at the next date, to take their plea.”

Izinyon has represented the IGP in some major cases. He represented the IGP in the cases against his invitation by the Senate over Senator Dino Melaye’s trial and the Offa robbery case in Abuja.

In the first count preferred against the defendants, the prosecution alleged that the five defendants “conspired to commit felony, to wit: examination malpractices, and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 10 of the Examination Malpractices Act Cap E15 LFN 2004”.

In count 2, the prosecution alleged that the three members of staff of the school acted in concert by aiding and abetting “the commission of examination malpractice by personation” when they allegedly “registered Senator Ademola Adeleke and Sikiru Adeleke” while knowing or having “reasons to believe that they are not students of the school”.

The alleged offence is said to be contrary to Section 9(1) of the Examination Malpractices Act Cap E15 LFN 2004.

In count three, the two Adelekes were accused of acting in concert, and “personated as students of Ojo-Aro Community Grammar School when you fraudulently registered as students of the school in the June/July, 2017 NECO”.

The offence is said to be contrary to Section 3(2) of the Examination Malpractices Act Cap E15 LFN 2004.

The fourth count accused the three members of staff of the school of “acting in concert” and while “saddled with the responsibilities of registering students of your school in the June/July 2017 NECO examination, breached that duty by registering Senator Ademola Adeleke and Sikiru Adeleke as students of your school in the June/July 2017 NECO examination when you know or had reasons to believe that they are not students of the school”.

The fourth count was said to be contrary to Section 10(a) and punishable under Section 3(2) of the Examination Malpractices Act Cap E15 LFN 2004.

"My Life Is Under Threat" - Dino Melaye Cries Out

The lawmaker representing the Kogi West Senatorial District, Senator Dino Melaye, has petitioned President Muhammadu Buhari alleging that the Nigeria Police are threatening his life.
Melaye, in the petition dated October 13, 2018, and addressed to the President, chronicled his battles with the men of the Nigeria Police both in Abuja and Kogi.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Amnesty International, European Union, United States Embassy, British High Commission, United Nations, Canadian Embassy, German Embassy, Economic Community of West African States and the African Union were copied.

The senator also accused Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State of being behind a plot to kill him.

He urged Buhari to order the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to restore his police details withdrawn since April, in order to guarantee his security especially as electioneering had begun ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The petition partly read;

Your Excellency Sir, may I, therefore, most humbly and respectfully urge you to caution the Nigeria Police. It is very clear, given the chronology of events as encapsulated in this petition, that the Kogi State Governor is using the Nigeria police, in his bid to stop my political ascendancy, to assassinate my person.

I have made several reports to local and international organisations, to alert them to the looming plot to kill me, by Governor Yahaya Bello, using the Nigeria Police Force, especially the Commissioner of Police, Kogi State. I firmly believe that the security of lives and property of every Nigerian citizen should be of paramount concern to the government.
I respectfully demand that you direct the Nigeria Police, under the Inspector-General of Police, to restore my security details, especially during this campaign period.”

Sad: Newly Elected APC Chairman, Ejiagwu Shot Dead In Imo (Photo)

Sunny Ejiagwu, the All Progressives Congress chairman in Ideato North Local Government of Imo state, has been murdered by gunmen suspected to be assassins in the early hours of Friday.
The police are going after the killers.

Ejiagwu, popularly known as Ohaneze, was one of the 27 LGAs chairmen inaugurated on Monday by the new state chairman, Daniel Nwafor, after the state APC rescheduled election as ordered by the court.

The state commissioner of police, Dasuki Galandanchi, who confirmed the murder, said that the corpse had been evacuated to a nearby mortuary.

According to the CP, the politician was killed along the Akokwa road in the Ideato North LGA.

The CP said “the APC chairman in Ideato North has been murdered. I was at the scene of the crime and only came back. His corpse has been evacuated to a mortuary.

"There is no preliminary suspicion but the investigator would find out. The blood of the innocent would expose them.”

Briefing newsmen at the state party secretariat, APC state chairman, Nwafor, said that the killing was condemnable.

He said that political killings and violence has no place in a democracy.

According to Nwafor; “The killing is condemnable because APC preaches peace and political tolerance. People should practice politics without bitterness and violence.

The constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria guarantees freedom of association.

We, therefore, call on the Inspector General of police to press on the commissioner of police to nab the culprits. Imo is a peaceful state and an example of how politics should be played.

The deceased was in our meeting on Thursday and he expressed concern about political violence in his area. He told us that his area is volatile and called on us to come to his rescue when the need arises.

From the information made available to me, he was double-crossed and when he tried to move back he fell into the gutter. His killers went there and shot him severely."

"I Am Grateful" - Dino Melaye's Full Statement as He Thanks Nigerians

Someone once said, that, rock bottom is good solid ground and a dead-end street is just a place to turn around.
In the last few weeks, I have been taken to the good solid ground at the rock bottom and they couldn’t go further. I have been brought to the dead-end street but with you standing by my side, I have turned around and bounced back to the chagrin of those who sought to seal my lips from speaking out against tyranny, politics of oppression and blackmail. They, unleashed an endless barrage of physical, psychological, metaphysical and emotional torture and assault on me, but, through the power of the Most High, and you the good people of Nigeria, we have once again, seen the triumph of truth over lies and good over evil.

2. It was Edmund Burke who was quoted as saying that when bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, … in a contemptible struggle. I am of all men, a blessed man, to have courageous and dependable people like you as my fellow soldiers in the struggle to free us from the shackles of political strongholds and tyranny. It is to you and my most wonderful and ever knowledgeable people of Kogi State, especially Kogi West, that I owe my deepest gratitude. You stood by me against the state and your own ‘best political self-interest’.

3. The state unleashed its raw power on me and released a 200 man-strong fully armed policemen - on a man without a knife nor a bullet. It did this because I called injustice by its name and called for accountability. For this they sought to break my spirit and destroy me permanently. In their moment of reign, I was fully shackled. With my hands tied to my back, and hurled into a dark solitary confinement waiting for the butchers knife, you, my people stood by me. You came against a raging fire and stood up against tyranny, lies, filthy lucre, injustice, persecution and greed. While in the dark and unable to fight for myself, they sought to take my mandate, which you had freely given to me. But you answered back and quenched deceit in its wake. You stood resolute and unflinching and defended your mandate to me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. In their attempt to break me, they have made me stronger.

4. To you my indefatigable leaders; my irremovable President of the Senate, a man of immeasurable vision for Nigeria and true fighter for the enthronement of true democracy and the rule of law, Sen. (Dr.) Abubakar Bukola Saraki. The fearless Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, I thank you both for your steadfastness in the defence of the Nigerian Constitution and the enthronement of the Rule of Law, justice and equity and the emasculation of anti-democratic forces and tyranny everywhere in Nigeria. I am eternally grateful to you.

5. To the entire National Assembly Membership, especially my colleagues in the Senate, I am eternally indebted to you for not playing politics but standing courageously against oppression and terror. You have shown yourself leaders on whom Nigeria’s hope for tomorrow can be assured.

6. To you our governors, ministers, my dear Okun people and leaders, the National Chairman and Kogi State Executive of the PDP, leaders of the Diplomatic Corps, opinion leaders, Chief Mike Ozekhome SAN, Chief Ricky Tarfa SAN, human rights lawyers and activists, and all my well-wishers and lovers of democracy in Nigeria; the Christian and Muslim Community, all of you that visited me in the National Hospital, after I was injured and subsequently detained at the hospital. I thank you all for your steadfastness in the defence of due process and the rule of law. I also thank you for your courage and solidarity.

7. Our ever foresighted and courageous civil society leadership, the media, leaders of thought across the country, our hard-working youth for whom I will give my last blood, our loving mothers and sisters, I lack words to express to you my profound gratitude for the unbreakable chord of love that binds me to you through thick and thin. You have strengthened my resolve and hardened my flesh against those who seek to devour and make meat of me. You have once again proven to me the axiom in the saying that “in prosperity, our friends know us; in adversity, we know our friends." I am very grateful. For your sake, I remain unbowed.

8. I know many of you worry about my safety and life in this new dispensation where life is no longer sacred in Nigeria. But do not be troubled. My bond of love for you, my good people, makes it impossible for me to consider my self-risk, safety, comfort or opportunity in my unflinching commitment to stand up for you, to stand up for truth and if necessary die for the truth and the emancipation of our people from the chains of poverty and oppression. Though they raise spurious allegations against me, bear false witness against me, though they seek to frighten me and lure me into their bounty of evil, I will fear no foe.

9. Yes, my traducers and torturers wish that I keep quiet; though they seek to seal my lips, to silence my voice forever, I remain ever more resolute and committed. I am committed to this cause for which I am a politician; the cause of the down trodden, to speak truth to power and stand against oppression and injustice. On these issues there will be no compromise. I owe no apologies and I tender none.

10. Like I have always said, you speak the truth, you die, you don’t speak the truth, you die. I have chosen to speak the truth, dead or alive. Rev. Martin Luther King Jnr., once said, “Cowardice asks the question - is it safe? Expediency asks the question - is it politics? Vanity asks the question - is it popular? But conscience asks the question - is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right.”

11. To my people, I promise you this and this only. I have taken my position, I will not hold back, I will not hold my peace, I will not be shut down, neither will I shut-up, not as long as injustice and falsehood continues to reign, as long as I will live, I will not bow to Baal.

12. May the Almighty continue to keep you all and be your bulwark until victory is assured. Once again, I thank you all so much.

13. God bless you.

14. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Sen. Dino Melaye (SDM)

Couple Finally Dies Same Day After 61 Years Of Marriage (Photo)

For 61 years, a Northland couple lived happily ever after together. The pair were inseparable.
Even in death. Peter and Ruth Bedford both died on Monday, May 14, nine hours apart from each other, one year past their 60th anniversary.

"It's good they went together," daughter Caroline Bedford said. "They would have been completely lost without each other."

Bedford said her father was admitted to hospital on Saturday evening.

"I think Mum decided he wasn't coming back," she said.

"She died at 10am on Monday morning and I got a message to Dad. He followed her about nine hours later," she said.

Peter and Ruth Bedford, 86 and 83, were married on December 30, 1957.

Peter had emigrated to New Zealand, as a "10 pound pom", where he fell in love with Ruth, from Wellington.

He was a rural man and a deep thinker, she eventually became a law clerk. But the pair were perfect for each other, Bedford said.

The couple loved tramping together, music, and going to concerts.

"Mum had a philosophical, intellectual brain and she loved to debate. And Dad was a big thinker too."

"They loved animals and they loved their garden," Caroline Bedford said. "They should have entered them into competition they were so good."

The couple were well known in the Kaikohe community where they had lived since 1980, and were heavily involved in the A&P Show.

Before then, the Bedford family had been raised in rural Manawatu. Caroline remembered growing up with sheep, cows, horses, possums, magpies, white rats, cats and a dog.

"They were very rural people. Well, Dad was. Mum liked the arts and socialising," she said.

"They were both fiercely independent. But very kind and helpful, especially in their community.

The couple are survived by their three children Michael, Simon and Caroline, and two grandchildren.

"They were very proud of their children and their grandchildren, I know that," she said.

Caroline said her daughter Cadence, 31, had said: "My Grandad didn't speak much, but when he spoke people listened."

Their funeral is on Wednesday at Squire Funeral Services in Kaikohe.

New Law: Sharing Fake News In Kenya Now A Crime

Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta has signed the controversial Computer and Cyber-Crimes Bill 2018 into law.

The Act – which spells out stiff punishment to cybercriminals – provides for timely and effective detection, prohibition, prevention, response, investigation and prosecution of computer and cybercrimes.

It deals with offences relating to computer systems including but not limited to unauthorised access, unauthorised interference, unauthorised interception, unauthorised disclosure of passwords, cyber espionage, false publications, child pornography, cyber terrorism and wrongful distribution of obscene or intimate images.

Following the passing of the Bill, generating and spreading fake news on social media could now land you in jail for at least five years, or leave you with millions of shillings to pay in court fines.

WhatsApp group administrators who condone sharing of fake news or information meant to incite ethnic hatred are also marked for severe punishment.

The Computer and Cyber Crimes Bill, 2018 sought to provide a framework that will prevent and control the threat of cyber crimes and other offences committed by means of computer systems.

One such crime is drafting, publishing and spreading false information, popularly known as “fake news.” The bill, tabled in the House by Majority Leader Aden Duale, proposed a Ksh.5 million fine or two years imprisonment for those found guilty of spreading fake news.

“Fake news is an offence under this bill, even when you receive fake news and forward it to another person, that’s an offence in this bill,” Duale had said.

Cultists Reveals The Consequences of Putting on His Red Regalia

A member of the Eiye Confraternity, Azeez Idris, paraded by the Lagos State Police Command alongside 15 others, allegedly said whenever he puts on his red regalia it means that somebody must be killed.

The state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, during the parade said Azeez Idris, as the leader of the Eiye Confraternity in Ilasan, confessed to the killing of many citizens in that location.

“He told the police that once he puts on his red regalia it means that somebody must be killed.

I haven’t killed anyone since I was initiated in 2016

But the suspect denied, saying: “I am a member of Eiye cult confraternity. I was initiated in 2016 by a friend called Honey.

Since I became a member of the cult, I haven’t killed anyone. The clothes I wore while sleeping is what the police alleged is the cult uniform. “I have gone to prison before for a related offence.

I was in Kirikiri for over three months before I was released. Because the police officer knows my house that is why they came to my house to arrest me. “The police officer said we were the ones terrorizing the community. I am not the leader of the gang. The current leader of the gang, Jide, is serving a jail term, while the founding leader is Andrew.

“Members of the gang usually contribute money to assist each other. The weapons recovered by the police were found in Andrew’s house. He said he is using the weapons at the site. He was the gang leader in the previous administration before Jide, who is now in prison, took over. Another member of the gang paraded, Andrew Awalebi, popularly called Flying Bird, confessed that he was initiated into the group in 1990 by one Efrebor.

He confessed to being a two-time ex-convict and had at one time been charged to Ebute-Meta Magistrate’s Court as a result of inter-cult clashes in Ajah/Lekki areas in which many lives were lost.

“I was a cultist before now but I am no longer a cultist. I was arrested in my house. I have been arrested for cult related activities.” Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, said nine of the cultists, who have made life a nightmare for the inhabitants of Jakande Estate and Lekki area of Lagos State, were arrested on May 9, at Jakande Estate, Lekki, Lagos based on their mission to attack rival cult group.

Weapon recovered from the suspects include a locally made single barrel pistol, two battle axe, two daggers, one cutlass, charms and a pair of red regalia. The other cultists were nabbed in Ketu area of Lagos. CP Edgal Imohimi noted that the suspects will be charged to court at the end of the investigation.

Police Warn Doctors Over Rejection of Gunshot Victims

The Lagos State Police Command on Wednesday warned hospitals and doctors to henceforth desist from rejecting gunshot victims, saying such act constitutes a flagrant violation of an existing law.
Edgal Imohimi
Reacting to a media report on the refusal of an hospital to treat a victim who was shot and wounded by armed robbers, the police said it must be noted that doctors who do so are criminally liable on account of the provision of the Compulsory Treatment and Care of Victims Of Gunshot Act, 2017.

In a statement by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, the police said it would henceforth arrest and prosecute any medical practitioner who rejects gunshot victims on the ground of police report.

“The attention of the Nigeria Police, Lagos State Command, has been drawn to the Punch Newspapers publication of Monday, May 14, 2018, captioned ” Hospital rejects victim over bullet injuries.”

“The story goes that one Engr. Adebayo Akinwunmi, a senior engineer with an Information and Communications Technology company, was shot and wounded by armed robbers in his house at Ofada-Mokoloki, Ogun state and was brought to Reddington hospital, Ikeja for treatment only to be refused admission on the unlawful and inexcusable grounds that there was no police report.

“The Command considers the action of the hospital as cruel; perhaps, an indication that the hospital management may be ignorant of the “Compulsory Treatment and Care of Victims Of Gunshot Act, 2017,” Oti said.

He said the Act demands that every hospital in Nigeria whether public or private ‘shall accept or receive for immediate and adequate treatment with or without police clearance any person with a gunshot wounds.’

“The Act, however requires the hospital treating such a patient to report the fact to the nearest police station within two (2) hours of commencement of treatment,” Oti clarified.

He said the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Imohimi Edgal was saddened by the allegation against the said hospital, and had henceforth directed the arrest and prosecution of any medical practitioner who violates the law.

“The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Imohimi Edgal, saddened by the allegation against the Reddington Hospital, has directed all Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers in Lagos State to henceforth arrest and diligently prosecute any medical practitioner who rejects a gunshot victim on the ground of no police report.

“The CP wants doctors to note that the Act recommends a 5-year-jail term for any person, hospital or authority who stands by or omits to do his bit which results in the unnecessary death of any person with bullet wounds,” Oti said.

Lagos State Police Arrested UNILAG Graduate For Allegedly Smuggling Indian Hemp Worth N10 Million Into Nigeria From Ghana

Lagos State Police Command has arrested a man named Gafar Ademolake for allegedly smuggling Indian hemp worth N10 million into Nigeria from Ghana.

The 38yr old who claimed to be a graduate of International Relations, UNILAG, said he took to the business when he couldn’t get an employment after graduation.

He explained that after his graduation and NYSC, he waited for about three years at home, doing nothing, before a friend, who was already into the business, introduced him to it. 

He recollected:
“After thinking about the business, I decided to try it. I first invested N200, 000 and made a whooping profit of N100, 000. In the past three years now, I have never looked back. I have made a lot of money.” 

According to Newtelegraph, he said that before his arrest, he had just recently invested N10m and had already wired the money to the courier called Iya Ghana, living at Mile 2 area of Lagos. 

He noted that if he had secured a job after graduation, he wouldn’t have ventured into the drug business. He also admitted that the incredible profits from the drug business, made it difficult for him to continue searching for a legal job. .

He said: “I regret my action. But I wanted to take my family away from poverty. That was why I decided to heed my friend’s advice and go into the drug business. I needed to survive. 

"Police tracked me through my phone after two drivers, who had gone to bring the Indian hemps for me from the warehouse were arrested by at the Ojueleba area. This is the first time I have been arrested since I joined the business.” 

When asked what he had achieved since he started the business, Ademolake said: “I have built two houses, and I have a car. I’m comfortable.”

The police said he will soon be charged to court after full investigation.
