by MARYAM HASSAN

A decomposing body of a 16-year-old housemaid allegedly killed and dumped in the bush by the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Mashi Local Government Area, Garba Talawai, has been found by the police.
The deceased teenager, Rabi Abdullahi, was a housegirl to the DPO’s girlfriend, Sadiya Danyaya.

DAILY NIGERIAN gathered that the DPO, who allegedly impregnated the girl, made unsuccessful efforts to abort the pregnancy that resulted to the death of the girl.

“When he realised that she died, the DPO sought the help of another policeman to dump the body in the bush,” said a source in the town who preferred not to be named.

Already the Katsina Police Commissioner, Sanusi Buba, has ordered the arrest and detention of Mr Talawai, a superintendent of police, after a preliminary report indicted him in the murder.

In a statement by the command’s spokesman, Gambo Isa, Rabi’s corpse was discovered at a bush path in Mashi on Thursday.
Mr Isa, a superintendent of police, noted that while at the hospital, some staff identified the corpse to be the one brought by the DPO and one policeman on Wednesday.

According to the spokesman, the DPO’s girlfriend had confirmed to the police that Rabi was her maid and that she had been missing since Wednesday — an incident she reported to the DPO.
Safiya told investigators that Rabi went missing after she rebuked her for carrying an unwanted pregnancy.

Mr Isa noted that both the DPO and his girlfriend, Safiya have been detained for a thorough investigation to determine their culpability in the murder.

He said a new Divisional Police Officer has already been posted to Mashi.
“The Commissioner of police, Katsina state Command, CP Sanusi Buba, psc, assures the parents of the deceased and indeed the good people of Katsina state that the command will not leave any stone unturned until justice is done in the matter,” the statement added.

SHOCKING: Graphic Details Of How Biafran Prophet Nwoko Was Murdered Surfaces [Photos]

Lifeless body of Prophet Anthony Nwoko still sitting on his home sofa, will he was left to bleed to death.

By Chukwuemeka Chimerue

THE last may have not been heard concerning the brutal murder and assassination of renowned Enugu-based prophet, late Anthony Nwoko as shocking and devastating pictures of the slain cleric suddenly surfaced.

An unknown source, simply identified as “3rd Eye Images”, today, released to the media, devastating pictures of the slain prophet who was seen lying in the pool of his blood in his apartment in Enugu after his supposed assailants left him for dead.

This is coming weeks after speculations were rife in certain quarters that Prophet Nwoko may not have been murdered and that he died a natural death, otherwise, his pictures would have been sighted online.

The gory pictures, however, confirmed that the fiery prophet was indeed butchered from his forehead down to his skull with a lethal weapon, supposedly a machete by yet-to-be identified group of persons involved in the dastardly act.

It was reliably gathered by our correspondent that some certain persons, involved in the investigation to unravel the killers of the fiery prophet has since gone underground, following threats to their lives.

Recall that the 65 year old prophet, was reportedly killed by unknown assailants on April 15, Monday night at his apartment located at No. 18 Ezebinugwu Street, beside Bright Land International School, Ugbene 2, in the Trans-Ekulu/Abakpa axis of Enugu.

Nwoko had lived alone, so, it was said that his death became known when a neighbour noticed that the door of his apartment had remained open; peeped in and saw the man in the pool of his blood.

The neighbours immediately alerted the police, who in turn, effected the immediate arrest of close neighbours to the slain prophet, although, no official statement has been released by the police.

But until recently, the sexagenarian was a close ally of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, who prayed for him and the group.

Nwoko, before his demise, had raised the alarm that his life was in danger and that he was receiving death threats from members of the IPOB over his bribery allegations against their leader, Kanu. Late Nwoko, however, was murdered after alleged instigation by IPOB leadership who labelled him a “DSS agent and saboteur” for falling out with Kanu.

However, the CSO of the Enugu State chapter of IPOB, Mr. Victor Egede, has since denied claims of his alleged involvement in the murder of the prophet.

The deceased cleric who uses social media as a means of propagation of his fiery prophecies, last posted on his Facebook account at about 1:40pm on April 14, where he uploaded various online reports of his views on Biafra agitation, including video clips from Kpakpando TV.

Pastors Kill Brother-in-law For Preventing Church Service In Ogun

Suspects: Ejim and Chukwuka Stephen

Deji Lambo and Tunji Bosun

Operatives of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested two pastors, Chukwuka Stephen and Ejim Stephen, for allegedly killing their brother-in-law, Peter Chukwuyem, in the Papa-Ibafo area of the state.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said in a statement on Thursday that the suspects, while living with Chukwuyem, were using the frontage of his house to conduct church services.

He stated that Chukwuka and Ejim became embittered when Chukwuyem stopped them from conducting church services in the frontage of his house, adding that when the victim went to the farm, the brothers allegedly waylaid and killed him.

Oyeyemi said, “Men of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested two self-acclaimed pastors, Chuckwuka Stephen, 43, and Ejim Stephen, 39, for killing their brother in-law, Peter Chukwuyem, on Tuesday, February 5, 2019.

“The victim, who was married to the elder sister of the two suspects, brought them from their village in Delta State to Papa-Ibafo in Ogun State, where they lived with the couple for some time. While they were living with the deceased, they were using the frontage of his house for their church activities, but when their conduct was no longer pleasant to their brother-in-law, he sent them away from the place, which led to them nursing animosity against the deceased.

“On Tuesday, February 5, 2019, the deceased went to his farm with two of his teenage daughters in the morning and met the suspects on the farm. Because of the presence of the two girls, the suspects were unable to do anything to him for fear of being exposed. In the evening of the same day, the deceased went back to the farm alone and the suspects, who had been waiting for him on the farm, accosted him and butchered him to death.”

Oyeyemi said when it was getting late and the deceased was nowhere to be found, his wife traced him to the farm and found his corpse.

He stated that the police arrested the suspects after the daughters of the deceased informed them that they saw Chukwuka and Ejim on their father’s farm in the morning. He added that during interrogation, the suspects owned up to the crime.

The PPRO said, “It was when the deceased didn’t return on time that his wife traced him to the farm and found his dead body. She subsequently went to the Ibafo Police Station, where she lodged a complaint. The two brothers were later arrested by the police at Ibafo based on the accounts of the two daughters of the deceased, who informed the police that they saw the two suspects earlier on their father’s farm.

“On interrogation, the suspects denied killing their brother-in-law, but when they were confronted by the two daughters of the deceased, they confessed to killing the deceased on his farm, because he deprived them the continuous use of his frontage for their church activities.

“The corpse of the deceased was subsequently removed and deposited in the General Hospital mortuary for post-mortem examination.”

Oyeyemi added that the Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for proper investigation and prosecution. (Punch)

Imo APC Chair’s Murder: Okorocha Offers N20m For Whistleblowers

Rochas-Okorocha1

Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha

Stanley Uzoaru, Owerri

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has promised N20 million to anyone with useful information that would lead to the arrest of the culprits who murdered the All Progressives Congress (APC) chairman of Idea to North  Local Government, Chief Sunny Ejiagwu.

The governor, in a press statement, he issued through his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, emphatically said that the murder of the APC chieftain was purely a case of assassination following the circumstances surrounding his death.

“Considering the fact that nothing was taken away from the man or removed from his car, it should not have been therefore a Case of armed robbery, and looking too at the fact that there was no sign of resistance or struggling between the killers and the victim and the method of shooting, the issue of kidnapping should also be ruled out,” Governor Okorocha said.

According to Governor Okorocha, “The man’s head and body were shattered with bullets following several gunshots just to make sure that he had no chance of being revived, and that could only be done by wicked assassins.”

Governor Okorocha, who spoke when political and community leaders of Ideato-North came to officially inform him about the gruesome murder of Ejeagwu, at the Government House, Owerri, assured that those behind the act would be brought to book.

He continued, “Last night we received a very disturbing news about the untimely death of one of our Party leaders in Ideato-North by name Sunny Ejeagwu (Ohaneze) who was murdered at about 8.00pm last night.

“We have come to a very painful moment of this our political life, to say that those who are behind the killing must be brought to book”.

“This is painful and Ohaneze(Ejiagwu) has no reason to die now. He has just been elected the Chairman of APC, Idearo-North and he is one that is loved by all, but for someone to have gone to take his life, we condemn it in its entirety and we have requested the Security agencies to fish out the killers.

“We as a government must ensure that these culprits, these wicked souls must be brought to book. We must never allow innocent souls to be destroyed or even people being killed just for nothing.”

He further added, “I’m here placing a price tag that whoever can give any useful information as to the killers of Chief Ejeagwu, this government will release the sum of N20million immediately just to make sure we arrest whoever killed this innocent soul.

“The Security agencies have been directed and mandated within the shortest possible time to produce the killers of this man.

“We are asking all Imolites to go about their businesses without fear, as security arrangements are in top gear to ensure the security of lives and properties in the state”.

The governor also added, “As politics comes up, this is a similar incident that happened many years ago wherein the same Akokwa, a notable politician was killed and it looks like it has become the character of Ideato-North to kill around that area whenever politics comes on.

“I’m yet to classify this killing as politically motivated killing. But even if that is the case, the perpetrators must be brought to book, and we shall use this to show an example that we mean business to fish out the men of the underworld,

“Therefore, I and the State government have sent our collective sympathy and heartfelt sympathy to the wife and children and the family of Chief Ejeagwu for this underserved, unmerited and wicked death that he had to go through in the hands of his murderers.

“But everyone must know that life is sacred and no one has the right to take another’s life, and whoever does that, whether now or later, must pay the prize.

“So, I sympathise with the family and government will be with this family in this their period of trials and pains. Once more, let me assure all Imolites, all members of APC that we must bring to book, the killers of Ohaneze, and not too far from now”, Governor Okorocha stated.  (The Sun)

Our Daughter’s Killer Must Marry Her Corpse Before Burial |The Republican News

By Babatope Okeowo

 

Parents of a 19-year-old Ebere Confidence Nwanma, who was allegedly killed by her boyfriend, Saliu Ladapo, yesterday said the suspect must marry the deceased at an elaborate wedding ceremony.

This, the parents said, was part of their tradition. The wedding ceremony, according to them, will take place in their hometown in Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State. The family said it was to prevent the death of young children Ladapo’s family from dying.

The 24-year-old Ladapo allegedly killed Ebere at Oshinle area of Akure, Ondo State. He blamed the devil for the death of the school certificate leaver, saying he did not know what came over him when he stabbed Ebere to death.

However, Ebere’s parents, Mr and Mrs Nwanma, insisted that the suspected killer must marry her corpse in their hometown before she could be buried.

“In our place, it is mandatory as our tradition that the man must marry the corpse of our daughter. “He must perform the normal traditional rite by taking the corpse to our village in Oru East in Imo State where the marriage would take place. “It is mandatory that he pays everything multiply by two because he brought our daughter dead for marriage. He would perform all the traditional rites before our family would let him go.

“This is because, without this traditional rite, every young person from the family of the boy would never get to the age of our daughter. They will die a sudden death just like our daughter. “This is not our making; it is the tradition of our ancestors even before we were born. Our people all over the world are waiting for the court judgement. Anyway it goes, the boy must perform that marital rite to our daughter’s corpse before anything,” the parents said.   (New Telegraph)

(Video) Man Snorts 4.5g Cocaine, Runs Half Naked Through Street After Murder |RN

A delivery driver has been jailed for life for stabbing a French tourist to death in an unprovoked and random attack.

Nicholas Foy, 39, had snorted 4.5grams of cocaine in a 24-hour drink and drugs session before running up to Laurent Volpe, 49, who was on his way to visit family.

Foy, wearing only a pair of pink shorts, plunged a large kitchen knife into Mr. Folpe’s stomach, passing through his liver. He then turned on witnesses shouting “Do you want some?” following the senseless and motiveless attack in Eltham, south east London last August.

Prosecutor Susanne Alavi said: “Laurent Volpe was on his way to see his family and happened to walk past Foy who indiscriminately selected him as his victim.

“During his trial, Foy blamed his behaviour on the sheer amount of drink and drugs he had consumed. However, he conceded that when he combined these substances, he could not control his violent and aggressive temper.

“Yet he chose to take this dangerous cocktail before stabbing Mr. Volpe to death.

“This was a callous and, in the event, unsuccessful way of seeking to absolve himself of responsibility.

“I would like to thank the many witnesses, including Mr. Volpe’s family, who came forward and gave evidence in court.

“I hope this sentence provides some comfort for them and Mr. Volpe’s friends. Our thoughts are with them.”

Mr Volpe, who was on a two-week holiday with his wife Cecile Chapais and their two children, collapsed at the scene in Eltham, south east London shortly before 7pm on August 11 last year.

Mr Volpe, an accomplished triathlete from the south of France, had spent the day sightseeing with his family.

 

They returned to Eltham, where they were staying through a house swap and Mr. Volpe popped to a nearby Co-op to get food. But on his way back, he bumped into dad of three, Foy.

When police arrived, Foy punched an officer before he was Tasered and arrested. And as he was taken to hospital for treatment to self-inflicted knife wounds to his foot, he headbutted another officer and had to be sedated by medical staff.

Paramedics took Mr. Volpe to Kings College Hospital in a critical condition but died three days later despite having a liver transplant.

Foy admitted manslaughter, claiming a lack of intent, but denied murder. He was convicted of murder at the Old Bailey on Monday, and jailed for life with a minimum of 17 years.

In the days before the attack Foy, who suffers depression, had not taken his medication, and chose to self-medicate with cocaine and alcohol instead, the judge said.

He had drunk five pints of lager, a litre of Jack Daniels whiskey and rum, and taken up to four-and-a-half grams of cocaine before leaving the house at 6.45pm.

Judge Sarah Munro QC said: “You took with you a large kitchen knife, going back and forward across the road to gouge your foot, believing there was a bomb.

“You had spent the previous evening, night and morning of the 11th of August filling yourself with alcohol and cocaine.

“You took all that, knowing the combination could make you angry, paranoid, aggressive and violent.

“You have a longstanding history of drink and drug abuse. You started taking cocaine aged 17, and took the drug daily until 2013.

“You also told the jury you have had a problem with alcohol for two years. Your records suggest it was a lot longer.”

Miyetti Allah Leaders Held Responsible For Benue Killings, Lawmaker Calls For Arrests

Miyetti-Allah-Cattle-Breeders-Association

Rose Ejembi, Makurdi

A lawmaker representing Katsina-Ala, Ukum and Logo Federal Constituency at the National Assembly, Emmanuel Udende, has condemned in strong terms the wanton killing of over 73 people by Fulani herdsmen in parts of his constituency Logo and Guma in Benue State, even as he accused leaders of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore (MAKH) of masterminding the attacks, calling for their arrest and prosecution.

The Federal lawmaker described the unprovoked attacks on his constituents as barbaric and wicked, stressing that the aim for the invasion was to dislodge the farming communities from their homes during the time of harvest.

He recounted how MAKH, a splinter body of cattle breeders in the country, had issued threats to invade the state if the state implements the anti-open grazing law, which sought to bring to an end to incessant cases of herders/farmers clashes.

Udende noted that the recent violence against the people was a clear manifestation of the earlier threat by the body to mobilize against the implementation of the law in the state. He called on security agencies to immediately arrest leaders of the group.

In a press statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media, Jerry Iorngaem, and  made available to journalists in Makurdi, the lawmaker expressed disappointment with the Federal Government in the manner it has handled the crisis, questioning why the Inspector General of Police would describe the invasion as a communal clash when it is obvious that the herdsmen carried out the attacks without any reprisal attack from the farmers.

Udende, who is Deputy Chairman, House Committee on Police Affairs, stated that the Benue State Government and other stakeholders had earlier drawn the attention of security agencies and the Federal Government to the impending herdsmen attack, but no serious security measures were put in place to protect the people – a negligence which finally resulted to the recent attacks

While sympathizing with the families of those that were massacred in the attacks, as well as those who were injured and the displaced, Udende charged them to remain calm as the Benue state government, in collaboration with stakeholders in the state, were doing everything humanly possible with the view to protecting them from further attacks and to also ensure justice for victims of this act of cruelty.

He expressed his total support and that of his constituents to the continued implementation of the anti-open grazing law in the State, stating that it remained the best global practice in the business of cattle rearing and must be encouraged

The lawmaker charged President Muhamadu Buhari to, as a matter of urgency, direct security agencies to rise up to their responsibility of securing the lives of Benue people. (The Sun)
