How 60-Year-Old Landlord Raped Tenant's Daughter Until She Collapsed In Lagos

By  - Nov 29, 2015

A 14-year-old female student of Junior Secondary School 1 reportedly collapsed after her parents' landlord identified only as Christopher, raped her multiple times in Fasanya Street, Fadeyi area of Lagos State.

The teenager whose identity was withdrawn escaped death by a hair's breadth following the prompt response from concerned residents shortly after the encounter.

The accused landlord who hails from Imo State, was said to have been among the people who came to her rescue while pretending like he didn't have a clue of what happened to the girl.

But luck ran out on him after the victim regained consciousness and narrated what transpired between her and the landlord. Her parents alerted the police from Alakara division who arrested the suspect.

The victim who hails from Ugelu in Delta State, narrated to Punch that her ordeal started the day she ran an errand for the landlord while her mother was away from home.

She said, "He has raped me three times. The first time was late last year when he asked me to buy him N10 sachet water. I bought the item and took it to his room, but he locked the door and pushed me to the bed. He pulled off my pants and I shouted for help.

"He said he would kill me with a knife he had kept on the table if I didn't shut up. He then brought out a black and white cloth, which he used to cover my mouth.

"He brought something which he rubbed on my private parts and his own as well.

"After he finished, there was blood everywhere. He brought water and said I should wash the bloodstains on my clothes. He gave me N100 to buy a drug to reduce my pain. He said I should not let my parents know that he had deflowered me. He said if they noticed, I should lie that it was a classmate that did it.

The victim further disclosed how the suspect sneaked to her parents' apartment the following day and demanded the pants she wore the day he deflowered her.

She said: "I asked him what he wanted to do with it; he said he only wanted to see it. I gave it to him, and he took it away. The following day, he returned it to me and said I should make sure I wear it.

"From that time, my private parts started itching me. I found it difficult to urinate."

The landlord further promised to buy the victim a mobile phone if she kept the secret.

The victim said she became weak after the last encounter with the landlord, so he gave her a tin of milk to drink after which she began to feel dizzy and passed out.

Her mother, Elizabeth said that she rarely stayed at home due to the demand of her factory job, adding that her husband was jobless.

She said the family never suspected Christopher, because of the role he played while his victim was ill.

She said, "I go to work in Agege around 3am, and return sometimes at 11pm, when they would have gone to bed. By the time I wake up in the morning, she and her siblings would still be asleep.

"When my daughter started complaining about itching in her private parts and could not urinate well, she told me it was her classmate that raped her.

"The landlord took me to the police station and together with some policemen we started looking for this classmate who allegedly raped her. I spent a lot of money and we went to different places, until the police became tired.

"We took her to a hospital for medical test and when I could not wait, I left my daughter with Christopher. When I asked him about the result of the test, he told me the doctors said everything was in order."

Meanwhile, the victim was reportedly kidnapped by three men soon after the landlord was arrested .

The victim said: "They said I should not shout and that if I did, they would kill me. I can recognise one of them.

"They said I must not run, if I did, they would kill me. They took me to a house.

"They used clothes to cover my face and my mouth and raped me. I was shouting and crying, but nobody came to my rescue.

"After they were done, they started apologising to me. The following day, one of the rapists brought me back home around 6am."

Her father, Peter, said the family apprehended the suspect and was taking him to the Alakara Police Station when some hoodlums hijacked him from them.

He said he could not tell the fate of the suspect, as the mob pummeled him, before taking him away.

Peter said their neighbours had started keeping malice with them over the detention of the landlord.

Peter, who lost his welding job about 12 years ago, explained that the family did not have the means of relocating from the house.

"It is not our joy to continue to live in this kind of place, but what do we do? I lost my job in 2003 and my wife, who was a factory worker, has stopped working over this issue. We have spent our livelihood on the infection that affected her private parts.

"We need the help of the government and the good people of Nigeria, not only to rescue our daughter, but to save us and give us justice in this case," he added.

The Coordinator of the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team, Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi, said the victim had been taken to the Mirabel Medical Centre where a case of rape was established.

She said, "We also informed the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Alakara Police Station and he organised officers who apprehended the suspect.

"However, the victim's mother did not tell us that she was gang-raped. I think the level of awareness of the family is low. But we will see the case through."

The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Joe Offor, confirmed the incident, adding that the matter had been transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation.

"The man involved is a 60-year-old man. They all live together in Fadeyi. The case has been transferred to the SDCI and I have been informed that they have taken him to court.

"I am not aware that some boys gang-raped her

MESSAGE TO MUSLIMS Please pass on to as many people as possible. I believe this could be the beginning of a mighty revival.
Who is an INFIDEL?
This is a true story and the author, Rick Mathes, is a well-known leader in prison ministry.
"The man who walks with God always gets to his destination".
If you still have a pulse, you have a divine purpose to accomplish.
As it stands today, the Islamic religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States, especially amongst the minority races!!
Last month I attended my annual training session that's required for maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training session, there was presentations by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim who each explained their beliefs.
I was particularly interested in what the Islamic had to say. So, the Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers. When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked:
'Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the
infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?'
There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, 'Non-believers!'
I then responded. So, let me make sure I have this straight ie. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?'
The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar. 'He sheepishly replied, 'Yes.'
I then stated, 'Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine the Pope can command all Catholics to kill those of your faith or in addition, Dr Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!'
The Muslim was speechless!
I continued, 'I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me!
Let me ask you a question:
Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me too?'
You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.
Needless to say, the organizers or promoters of the 'Diversification' training seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam, and exposing the naked truth about the evil in Muslims' beliefs.
Therefore, the way things are going now in the next 10 years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President! Enough Muslim voters in the UK to vote in the Prime Minister. In fact, by 2019 when Boko Haram had finished their depopulation of Christians in Nigeria, there may be no Christian candidates to stand for elective post in the next 5 years. Think about your children's world. I think everyone in the WORLD!!! should be required to read this, but with the careless attitude of most believers, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it to relations and friends! This is your chance to make a difference... 
The battle is the Lord's but he needs a vessel to stand in the gap.... Are you available for my Christ????
I think a true believer of Christ should share this information

Revealed: Yahaya Bello Emerges Audu's Replacement In Kogi

After extensive consultations, the All Progressives Congress (APC) is said to have agreed aan submitted the name of Yahaya Bello as the party's new candidate for Kogi governorship supplementary poll.

Bello replaces late Prince Abubakar Audu, who died last weekend after leading the poll with 41,000.

APC has retained James Faleke as the party's deputy governorship candidate. But will Faleke accept?

Mohammed Audu, the son of the late governorship candidate, was dumped by the party because the party felt that fielding him might vitiate the entire governorship poll in the state.

But sources say the people of Kogi West district were mounting pressure on Faleke not to accept Bello as the governor and himself as deputy.

Although they asked Faleke to withdraw from the race, the deputy governorship candidate was yet to make up his mind on the next step as at the time of posting.

According to SR, APC leaders, with the backing of some forces in the Presidency, opted for Bello because he came second in the party's primaries behind Audu.
It was also gathered that the APC leaders felt there was no way Mohammed Audu could be fielded as a new compromise candidate since he was not a candidate in the primaries.

A top source in APC said: "Our leaders met and after consultations reached a conclusion on the choice of Yahaya Bello from Kogi Central as the party's candidate to substitute the late Prince Audu.

"The leaders arrived at the conclusion because Bello was second to Audu at the validly conducted governorship primaries of the party. Instead of running into crisis with fresh primaries, the party opted to dust up the result of the previous one which was witnessed by INEC.

"A letter, signed by the National Chairman of APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, on the choice of Bello has been submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday."

Asked of other factors behind the choice of Bello, the top APC leader said: "Our leaders bought into the idea that Faleke is strange to the politics of the state, having had most of his political career in Lagos. They felt it is better for him to learn the ropes in the state before becoming a governor.

"They also argued that the choice of Bello will ensure power shift in the state and since the Ebiras were behind Audu, it won't be difficult to foster understanding between Kogi East and Kogi Central Senatorial Districts.

"Do not forget that Kogi East had already produced the minister from the state.

"There was also some conspiracy behind the refusal of the ticket for Faleke. Some forces stamped their feet that he must not be allowed to step into Audu's shoes because of internal power struggles in APC.

"I won't give you names but the forces were more powerful than Oyegun and other NWC members."

A different source said: "There are many options open to Faleke but the people of Kogi West want him to withdraw from the race. If Bello gets the ticket, he might be reduced to a dummy deputy governor.

"Unless Faleke can fight his cause in court and claim his mandate, he will be frustrated as a deputy governor. If he quits, the party will have justification for bringing Mohammed Audu.

Here Are The Mistakes That Are Crashing Many Marriages

It has been revealed that there is an increasing rate of divorce. A visit to any of the (functioning) customary courts around the country, especially within Lagos, show a sharp increase in the rate of divorce, as both old and young couples visit the courts to seek the dissolution of their marriages. And the reasons could range from shocking to ridiculous.

Regardless, with about 50% of marriages ending in divorce in America and no fairer situation in Nigeria, it is important to identify mistakes couples make in marriage that could lead to a divorce...

Some marriage counsellors have argued that a perfect marriage is hard to come by because couples tend to disagree on issues from time to time, but they note that the success or otherwise of marriages, depend largely on how couples handle their differences.

Usually, when talking about divorce, one of the factors that readily come to mind is infidelity, which simply means being unfaithful to a spouse. But beyond that, there are other things that lead to divorce, such as spousal abuse, bad manners, peer influence, unrealistic expectations, lack of quality time with one's spouse, inadequate communication, deceit and unsatisfactory s*x life.

According to a seasoned marriage counsellor, Elly Prior, common relationship problems that often lead to divorce include cheating (be it one-night stands, internet relationships and long-and short-term affairs), excessive reliance on social media, s*xual problems, significant differences in core values and beliefs, traumatic or life changing events, boredom, jealousy, family issues and domestic abuse.

Other reasons include incompatibility, lack of responsibility and finances, unrealistic expectations, addiction to certain unpleasant substances, lack of support in times of need, poor communication, etc.

In another twist, some psychologists in their study identified other factors that could lead to a divorce such as bad s*x, laziness, dirty appearance (mouth odour), being too needy or demanding, distance, lack of self development, too much interest in television and social trends online dangerous to marriage.Other factors identified are stubbornness, arrogance.

"Also, men would more likely be turned off by a woman who talks too much and has a low s*x drive while women, on the other hand, were more likely to discontent with men who has high s*x drive but don't do a lot in the area of communication..."

Reacting, a Nigerian professor, Oni Fagboungbe said:
"What we call courtship is fizzling out. It's no longer there, yet people need to understand themselves. They need to agree whether to make the marriage work or not, and that is the essence of communication. The agreement tend to shapen their mentality and with that, there is tolerance, acceptance, support and other variables that will make the marriage work."

NICE MOVE! Dangote to Give 500mw Electricity to 4 States

President, Dangote Group of Companies, Alhaji Aliko Dangote has pledged to construct a 500 megawatt power plant for Kano, Katsina, Jigawa and Kaduna states.

In his address at the 36th Kano Trade Fair held in Kano, the executive director stakeholders management, Engr. Mansur Ahmad who represented Aliko Dangote at the occasion stated that power plant is a deliberate attempt to support local economy and wealth creation.

Engr. Mansur maintained that without power industries and commerce will cripple and businesses will tremendously decline and that has been the situation in Kano for decades, saying anything to be done to revive such would have to be done now than anytime.

The Executive Director revealed that they were currently discussing with the Kano State government on the 500 mega watt power supply and final agreement will be sign in few weeks to come.

According to him, Dangote has been providing support areas of health and education in Kano, adding that in the next few weeks they are going to hand over six out of the health care facilities built and were completed to Kano government.

In his words Dangote group has done quite a lot of intervention across the federation, sighting the example of Ebola case were Dangote group expended over a billion naira to control it's spread and another billion naira support to Internally Displaced Persons, IDP's in especially the north east

Dele Momodu writes a memo to President Muhammadu Buhari asking him to as a matter of urgency fix Nigeria saying that Nigerians are lamenting that the change he promised is fast becoming a mirage and that Buhari's style and methodology appear too slow.

He also went further to say that many mostly the oppotions want the government to fail saying that they were 'skillfully setting the president up for failure in order to be able to taunt his supporters.'

Read the full memo bellow

By Dele Momodu

Your Excellency, it's been months since I wrote my desperate memo to you. I wish to thank you once more for reacting promptly and swiftly at that time and for giving me the honour and privilege of meeting you in your office. I remember presenting you a special compilation of my articles, especially the many admonitions to your immediate predecessor, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

After handing over the book to you, Sir, I promised to continue acting in my self-appointed capacity as Special Adviser because of the need to tell you what those very close to you might not be able to say. They might be afraid of you and your reaction.

The truth is you are a plain and simple man imbued with a mission and a passion to save this great country but you cannot do it on your own. You can only do it if people close to you, who should be advising you, tell you as it is so that you can do that which you were elected to do.

Sir, it is on the above basis that I'm back today for reasons some of which you probably know already from your own personal observations and readings. But before I go further, kindly permit me to set some records straight before some conspiracy specialists step forward to ascribe other people's opinion to me. I shall clearly expose my personal views and state where I belong or stand for any avoidance of doubt. Everywhere I go people refer to me as Buhari's man and ask "what's your Baba doing ooo?". I seriously have no problem with that. I'm proud that I joined so many other Nigerians as well as foreign friends in supporting a man of impeccable pedigree and solid integrity. No matter your view of President Muhammadu Buhari, one thing his bitterest enemies give to him is the fact that he is way above the level of most mortals in matters of uprightness.

This is why many of us volunteered to scream your name to high heavens and we were ready to follow you to Golgotha. Many of your opponents have not gotten over the thrashing you gave them and would forever seek everything and anything to smear you with. It is therefore not surprising that there has been so much noise about what you've done or left undone. Whether they are right or wrong in their assessment, I feel it is right and proper to let you know what people are saying about you including your most ardent fans and supporters. Sir, please, let's not dismiss them as mere rabble-rousers. A groundswell of public opinion can easily metamorphose into an ocean of disenchantment and cataclysmic confusion. In short, I believe your enemies are skilfully setting you up for failure in order to be able to taunt your supporters later by saying we "we told you so!" In this regard it is pertinent to always bear in mind the Yoruba saying 'ehin kunle l'ota wa, ile ni a se ni ngbe'! Loosely translated it means "the enemy lurk outside in the backyard but your foe resides inside your house."

What is the matter this time? Many Nigerians are lamenting that the change you promised them is fast becoming a mirage. It is certainly not what they are seeing right now. They insist that your style and methodology appear too slow for a nation in dire straits and in need of urgent and miraculous deliverance. They are not happy that you are no longer the prudent man they used to know. They think you've already capitulated by frolicking with members of the bourgeois class and junketing around the world while Nigeria burns like Dante's inferno. They are miffed that you are still keeping the Presidential fleet when you are supposed to have sold most of them off, if not all. They are worried that the mandate of four years they gave you is being unwittingly frittered away and before you know it all the goodwill you garnered would have evaporated and vamoosed. Time, they say, waits for no man!

The economy and the free fall of the Naira have become worrisome. There are all manner of rumours that may make matters worse, if true, about the current state and status of our banks. Though the Central Bank of Nigeria has come out forcefully to dispel the dangerous rumours, they want you to unleash your economic master-plan as soon as possible, so that what was once a baseless rumour does not somehow become harsh reality. They are expecting a blue-print that would guarantee a farewell to poverty. On this I agree with the opinion that something drastic has to be conjured up to arrest this drift to perdition. Nothing amplifies this monumental tragedy than the debit card fiasco which stipulates that Nigerians cannot live in a civilised world by walking into any international hotel or shop of their choice and paying with their cards. This is terriribly depressing.

What this means in plain terms is that Nigerians must patronise the black market and run the risk of carrying cash recklessly whenever they travel abroad. It makes a mockery of the cashless society that the CBN has fought so hard to put in place and jeopardises your fight against corruption because government officials who travel abroad must of necessity carry large sums of cash if they are not to be embarrassed or even disgraced. Sir, the most important thing is that this is not healthy at all. The last thing your Government should be telling the world is that we are so broke that we are on our knees. The world laughs at us and treats us with derision because we have resources other than crude oil which should make us one of the richest in the world if we properly harness them. We must stop giving the impression that we are so impoverished when it is leadership, brigandage and a lack of focus that has failed us.

The other matter that continues to embarrass Nigerians is the issue of Boko Haram. The matter is made worse by the fact that you are a retired army General who should know and have what it takes to drastically reduce if not exterminate the cankerworm. But rather the menace has exacerbated. It has snowballed into a seemingly unquenchable conflagration. I had argued repeatedly that the military alone cannot achieve this result. Intelligence seems to be the key word here. Also identifying and locating some of the cells and prominent sympathisers is crucial. Those who arrogantly and naively say that no form of negotiation should take place are very far from the theatre of war. They have probably not heard of a group called IRA, the Irish Republican Army, that terrorised Great Britain for God knows how many years. I and my directors at Ovation International were lucky to escape a massive explosion that shattered the peace and tranquillity of London Docklands when a bomb went off inside the South Quay light rail station which was next to our office at Beaufort Court. The battle of wits and the war of attrition had to be fought using the carrot and the stick approach. It was the carrot approach that eventually succeeded and the United Kingdom has now been rid of that hitherto interminable scourge for many years!

The Boko Haram issue has defied every effort made so far and it is time to expand the options for the sake of our fellow citizens in the heart of this conundrum. When over 200 girls vanished into thin air, we were so sure they would return very soon but that has remained an illusion. This should tell us that this issue is not a joke and that we need to keep all windows open. Sir, Nigerians want to see government show a different approach and better compassion than what we had in the past. They are waiting to see how you will do this with minimum collateral damage.
Sir, you have a herculean task ahead but it is not a mission impossible. Other nations are experiencing almost similar challenges and they are forging ahead. The first indicator to exhibit our seriousness is when we stop the business as usual syndrome and tighten the belts of government officials and politicians. If the idea is to continue along the path of profligacy then Nigeria is contagiously jinxed. The Republic of Tanzania has already taken the lead. I will publish a report that has already gone viral below this letter as a veritable example of what is possible.

I wish you well as always Sir.

Policemen Are Using Us Like Their ATMs – Lagos sex workers

In the early 1960s up till the late 1990s, the area used to be very popular among revelers from within and outside Lagos. Day and night, it was the place to be. Ask anybody around Yaba, Ojuelegba and even other parts of mainland Lagos and you won't miss your way. Empire – a cluster of streets in the heart of Mushin, one of the city's most densely populated areas, housing several chalets and offering plenty of cheap s*x, drugs and alcohol was the name on many people's lips.

The arrival of Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, in 1962, increased traffic to the area. In those days, the area known as Empire which derived its name from Empire Hotel situated on Oguntokun Street, could be likened to a modern day 'Sodom' – immorality thrived at every corner.

Though, still playing host to a number of hotels, drinking joints and spots where drugs of all kinds are experimented, Empire has lost some of its spark over the years, with only few people turning to it today for entertainment. But even with such reduced traffic, commercial s*x workers operating in the community remain one of the most patronised in Lagos. Charging as low as N500 for a round of s*x in some cases, clients from far and near ensure the industry is well and alive.

However, some of the ladies in the illicit profession told PUNCH that much of what they earn these days go to policemen who come in weekly to collect compulsory 'settlements'. 

According to a handful of them, each lady pays between N7,000 and N8,000 every week to the leader of the hotel where they 'hustle'. The fee, they revealed, covers rent for the week and 'tax' for the police among other such bills. The pressure of meeting up with such weekly obligation is taking its toll on many of the prostitutes who prospect for clients in Empire.

"Whether you work in a week or not, you must pay the regular dues to the head of the hotel," said one of the ladies who spoke at 'White House', one of several chalets dotting the community's landscape. "Each of us who 'hustle' here pays N8,000 every week to our boss who then 'settles' the police from it after removing money for rent and other levies. We are over 15 'hustling' here and if you calculate what the police is making from each of us every week, then you'll see that they are the ones benefiting from our 'hard work'. If we fail to 'settle' them, they'll come in to harass and intimidate us.

"For the eight months that I have worked here, I have seen a lot of things. It is just as if we have become ATMs for the police; we are like a source of income or a money pot for them. Just to meet up with their demand and avoid harassment, most of us now have to work more than we should. It has not been easy in recent times," she said.

At 'Cool Corner', another hotel in the community where ladies of different ages and sizes flaunt their 'assets' in wait for prospective customers, one commercial sex worker who told our correspondent that she was 24 years old and had been servicing 'clients' who visit the place since 2012, revealed that the constant demand by police officers has become a big source of worry for many of them. According to her, at least each lady 'hustling' at the hotel pays around N5,000 as 'settlement' to law enforcement officers every week aside from what they churn out for rent. She told PUNCH that the situation makes them feel like cash cows to the police.

"It is not as if those of us doing this job are proud of it, no. Many of us are doing it because we don't have other means of survival. But to now imagine that most of what we manage to make these days go into 'settling' the police, is really annoying. They don't come to us directly, they deal with our boss but then we are the ones suffering the whole thing. The money these people make from us every week is just too much," she said.

At other hotels within the area, the feeling was the same. Many of the prostitutes at three other active spots, 'Number Six', 'Lido Hotel' and 'Seventeen Bar', said the situation has piled pressure on a lot of them and eaten deep into the little funds they usually make at the end of each week. 

Managers of two of the hotels refused to speak on the issue as a result of fear. They also refused to disclose which station the policemen they pay the weekly 'royalty' to come from even though a bar man in one of the hotels pointed that the officers came from all nearby police stations. Empire is in between Mushin and Jibowu in Yaba.

But apart from the dilemma now faced by commercial s*x workers in this Lagos neighbourhood, the spate of crime in the area in recent times has reduced life to a living nightmare for many of its residents, especially parents with young boys and girls. Some, for fear of the morals of their children, put them in boarding schools and also give them out to live with relatives and friends in other places.

"I don't have money to move out of this area yet but I cannot afford to have my children grow up here and have their lives destroyed," Mrs. Fatima Ahmed, a petty trader, told PUNCH. 

A commercial motorcyclist, Stephen Okoli, who lives with his three daughters and wife on Oguntokun Street, said his girls only return to the area at weekends from his sister's place in Ojota where they live and go to school at weekdays. He revealed that this was the best way he could protect them from being infected with the immoralities in the area at the moment.

"My wife and I decided to let them live with my sister at Ojota just to protect them," Okoli said.

"They are little girls still growing up and we don't want them to be corrupted by what people are doing here. Our fear is that there is no way they would grow up here and won't be influenced one way or the other by the lifestyle here. Many of the ladies are prostitutes while the young men are into drugs and other crimes. I don't want such for my children. We want them to have a better life than ours," he added

Court of Appeal again

A Court of Appeal, sitting in Makurdi, Benue State, has nullified the election of former senate president, David Mark. The court faulted the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission to declare Mark, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, winner of the March 28 senatorial election in Benue south.

A rerun of the poll must be conducted within 90 days, the court ruled.

Mark's purported victory was challenged by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Donald Onjeh. Yet another one

Shop rite ikeja shut down

The Lagos State Safety Commission has shut the multi-billion multi-national shopping outlet, Shoprite located at the Ikeja Shopping Mall, Ikeja, Lagos, southwest Nigeria, for allegedly breaching safety law, Pm News is reporting.

Officials of the commission were said to have stormed Shoprite yesterday afternoon and drove everyone out and sealed off the massive premises, placing a seal order at the entrance.

The seal order notice read: "Sealed, this premises has been sealed following the breach of safety law. This seal must not be broken. For further enquiries, contact the Commission."

When P.M.News visited the place Friday night, many customers who did not know that the place had been shut were stranded outside the premises.

A source in the commission however disclosed to them the place was shut for failing to abide by the safety laws of the state

Etcetera writes again

From the north, Boko Haram is threatening to drag the whole country down a cliff, and if nothing is done pretty soon, we are going to have a situation in our hands with the Biafra movement. It is already a keg of gunpowder waiting to explode in our faces. The business of armed robbery has never been as lucrative as it is today.

The economy is another area that calls for the president's urgent attention. But what do we have? A president who has more-or-less assumed the role of a jack of all trade while doing nothing in particular. The president should resign as the minister of petroleum immediately if we are ever going to have sanity in the petroleum industry.

What we need is a petroleum minister who is saddled with no other responsibility outside his ministry. Take for instance the negotiations with the petroleum marketers; it could have been better handled with more urgency knowing that the people are seriously suffering as a result of the slow pace of negotiations. I don't understand how the president wants to be personally involved in negotiations with oil marketers and at the same time travel all over the world from one summit to another. He should understand that the masses don't care that much about the bottlenecks in these negotiations; all we want is to be able to drive into a filling station and buy fuel at any time of the day or year.

Secondly, is APC still the opposition party? Because responding to every jibe from PDP doesn't speak of a party who has come to terms with being a ruling party. What I see here is that the APC never thought in its wildest dreams that Goodluck Jonathan would lose in the last election and as a result, they weren't prepared for the responsibility of ruling. The PDP left us in a total mess and would love nothing more than seeing APC fail.

APC should put aside their lyrical battle with PDP and fix the issues facing this country or be seen as another party that failed us. APC should understand that elections shouldn't be a win at all cost affairs. The choice of late Abubakar Audu as the party's governorship candidate for Kogi State beats me. A man who had already been twice governor of the state from January 1992 until November 1993 and from 29th May 1999 to May 2003? Was it that Audu performed so well in his previous spells as governor of the state that APC chose to bring him back? I keep wondering what the party's "change" philosophy is all about. As we speak, Bayelsa State is having another former governor as APC candidate for the coming governorship election in the state. May God save us all from desperate political parties.

INEC should explain to us why politicians are allowed to contest for elective positions in two different states. We have seen politicians lose primaries in one state and move to another state and get elected. Isn't it confusing that Solomon Olamilekan alias YAYI contested for Lagos West senatorial seat after previously registering to contest for Ogun West senatorial district? And now, Faleke, who was a chairman of Ojodu local government and was also a member of Lagos State House of Representatives may emerge as the governor of Kogi State. INEC, please explain to us how this is possible ooo
Former Chelsea striker, Didier Drogba says he has an agreement to return to the club once he finishes playing and wants it to be as manager.

Drogba, who now plays in Canada, scored 164 goals in two spells with the Blues.

"I want to give back to the club which has given so much to me. I have agreed that with the club directors. Why not manager? Why not sporting director, trainer at the academy or maybe an advising role for strikers?," the 37-year-old told BBC Africa.
Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has announced automatic employment to 12 first class graduates of the Tai Solarin University of Education, TASUED.
Governor Amosun announced this, on Saturday, while speaking at the 6th and 7th Convocation and 10th anniversary ceremony of the Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijagun, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State.
He added that his administration was ready and committed to doing all that is necessary to make certificates of higher institutions in Ogun State, the most sought-after in Nigeria.
The governor noted that the greatest legacy anyone can bequeath to the coming generation is a good education adding that "it is easier to govern an enlightened and educated populace."
Governor Amosun also promised to continue with his administration's commitment to providing top notch facilities in tertiary institutions in Ogun State.
The governor said his administration will continue to build more hostels of residence and lecture rooms in order to ensure better learning conditions and forestall negative indoctrination of the students.
The Ogun State governor also enjoined the graduands to be aware of the responsibility they now have to the society as a whole.
"I charge you all to remember that you are now transitioning into shapers of other destinies as you go into the world to contribute your quota. It is your responsibility as teachers to ensure that the younger people put in your trust are well developed both in character and learning.
"Moreover, I want to charge you to be responsible, industrious, dependable and humble. You should ensure that you are good ambassadors of this great citadel of learning in all you do.
"You should also comport yourselves with dignity in whatever situation life may place you and in a manner befitting of products of the foremost University of education in Nigeria," Governor Amosun said.
Speaking earlier, the Vice-chancellor of TASUED, Mrs. Oluyemisi Obilade noted that the institution was the first University of Education in Nigeria, the 2nd in Africa and the 8th in the world adding that its vision was "to be a one-stop shop for all educational needs and preferred University of education globally."
Obilade also noted that 5,970 graduands were being conferred with First degrees, out of which, twelve (12) graduated with First class Honours while adding that nothing has added more glamour to the school's 10th anniversary than the quality of individuals who were honoured with honorary doctorate degrees at the event.
The event witnessed the conferment of honorary doctorate degrees to Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, former President of Nigeria; late Chief Mrs. HID Awolowo and

The senator representing Bayelsa-East senatorial district, Ben Murray-Bruce in a series of tweets have reminded Governors that their dogs at State houses spend more than N18,000 a month for upkeep, how much more human beings. He urged them to eradicate the thought of them not willing to pay the minimum wage henceforth, saying that will be a act of wickedness and inhuman.

"I know for the fact that even dogs at Government House cost more than N18,000 to take care of in a month. How much more a human being?,'' he tweeted. More tweets below.

"It is unjust for a government to contemplate reducing workers' pay of N18,000. What can that amount buy in today's Nigeria?

"A worker with a family earns less than a member of the NYSC who earns 19,800. Reducing his pay is unconscionable. A man earning N18,000 struggles to pay rent, feed his family and pay school fees. To reduce his pay is to punish his family.

"In the last four years, the cost of food and fuel has gone up. Can we, in good faith, make a case for the reduction of workers' pay?"
According to twitter user, Lilbature, Pro Biafran supporters this morning stormed an Abuja Magistrate Court, Wuse Zone 2. He says he isn't sure whether they were waiting for Kanu at the court or not, but they were singing and dancing and asking for freedom. More photos below.
