Good News!! Abducted And Married 14 Year Old Girl, Ese Rescued By Police

Good News!! Abducted And Married 14 Year Old Girl, Ese Rescued By Police
The 14 year old girl who was allegedly abducted by one Yinusa, aka Yellow, who also forced her into marriage has been rescued in Kano. Punch reports the Inspector general of police, Arase rescued Ese…The site did not give more details at the moment.

Punch had started a Free Ese campaign on Sunday afterYinusa, a tricycle driver, took away the minor to Kano on August 12, 2015, from her mother’s shop in Opolo Yenagoa Local Government Area, Bayelsa State. The mother, Mrs. Rose Oruru, had gone out on the day leaving Ese and her siblings in the shop. Yinusa seized the girl in her absence.
Rose’s attempts to seek the release of the girl at the Emir of Kano’s (Sanusi Lamido’s) palace, where she was reportedly kept met a stiff resistance.
Yinusa subsequently took Ese, who was 13 years old at the time, to Kano where she was allegedly converted to Islam and forcefully married.

Since August 12 when her parents made the shocking discovery, trips to Kano, the involvement of the police and efforts to get the Emir of Kano, Mallam Lamido Sanusi, at whose palace the girl is believed to be held to resolve the matter and ensure the return of the 14-year-old to her parents have been resisted by those responsible for the abduction.

While her mother was told that Ese had converted to Islam and, therefore, was no longer her daughter, her father was told that his daughter was an 18-year-old adult and not 14, hence she was capable of making decisions for herself.

The fact that the teenager’s parents had reported at the Ekeki Police Station, Yenagoa, and to the Kwani Police Station, Kano, and sought the IGP’s intervention since last year without success angered many Nigerians.

The parents had said all efforts to secure the release of their daughter from the palace had proved abortive.

According to the state Commissioner for Health, Mrs. Ngozi Njoku, the death toll from the latest outbreak had risen to 30 in the last few weeks.

Alfa Dupes Woman N350k After Promising Her He Will Multiply The Money To N5m

The Maroko Police Division in the Lekki area of Lagos State has arrested a self-acclaimed Alfa, Alhaji Ibrahim Ahamido, for allegedly defrauding a trader, Sarah Moses.

According to reports, Ahamido collected N350,000 from Moses, promising to boost her business by turning the money to N5m.

He was, however, alleged to have fled with the money, after giving his girlfriend, Hawa Musa, N100,000 to “renew their love”.

A source explained that the victim had been introduced to Ahamido sometime in December, 2015, in a restaurant in Lekki. Ahamido was said to have boasted special powers that could make him multiply money after prayers.

The source said, “The woman initially did not believe. So, he promised to help her bring out her child, who at the time was arrested by the police for an offence he committed.

“He prepared some concoction for her, and just like that, the woman’s son was released. That immediately convinced her and she trusted him.”

She was said to have asked him for help concerning her business, which was not doing well.

The suspect reportedly asked her to give him N350, 000 so he could turn it to N5m. Moses said she believed him, and gave him the money.

She said, “I told him I would be travelling to Ghana in December 2015, and I would return in January 2016. He gave me something to put under my pillow. He said when I return from my trip, I should check the pillow and the N5m would be there.

“When I returned, I checked under the pillow, but I did not see any money. I called him to inform him, and he said it was my fault because I did not come back on time. He said the money came out from the container he gave me, but when I did not pack it on time, it went back.

“He asked me to pay another N9,000 so that he could make another charm to repair the damage. It was after I gave him the money and he disappeared that I knew I was dealing with a fraudster.”

She said she reported the case to the police, and after a manhunt, Ahamido was arrested.

The 47-year-old suspect, however, said he did not mean to dupe the trader, adding that he tried to multiply the money, but failed.

While denying taking up to N350,000 from his victim, he told the police that he gave N100,000 to his girlfriend.

“I did not collect up to N350,000 from her, and she even gave me the money piecemeal. The total is N150,000. I will refund the money since her blood was not compatible with the prayers,” he said.

His girlfriend, Musa, denied collecting N100,000 from him.

She said, “I came to Lagos about 15 years ago. It was about three months ago that Alhaji came to me and said he wanted to date me. Three days later, he bought a wrapper for me. I did not know where he got it from. When he continued buying me more wrappers, I suspected something was wrong and I started keeping them so that if a police case arose, I would be able to defend myself. He bought me only four wrappers. He never gave me any N100, 000.”

The police, however, arraigned the duo before an Igbosere Magistrate’s Court on two counts of obtaining under false pretences.

The charge read in part,

“That you, Ibrahim Ahamido, and Hawa Musa, on February 22, 2016, at Marwa Waterside, Lekki, Lagos, in the Eti-osa Local Government Area, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did obtain by false pretences the sum of N340,000 from one Sarah Moses, with the pretence of making more money for her.”

The police prosecutor, Sergeant Cyriacus Osuji, said the offences were punishable under sections 409 and 312 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, Nigeria, 2011.

While Ahamado pleaded guilty to the charge, his girlfriend, Musa, said she was not guilty and elected summary trial.

The magistrate, Mrs. J.O.A. Adepoju, admitted her to bail in the sum of N100, 000 with two sureties in like sum.

She adjourned the case till March 2 for facts and sentence of Musa.

Robbers Invade Hospitals, Rob Nurses, Patients, Cart Away Medical Equipment

Armed robbers at the weekend attacked two private hospitals in Okitipupa, Ondo State. A source said the robbers made away with money and other valuables belonging to staff and patients. According to the source, the robbers also carted away some medical equipment. It was also gathered that patients and nurses, who had no money to give to the robbers, were beaten up.

A victim, who pleaded for anonymity, said: “There were five masked robbers. They came to the hospitals on motorcycles and threatened to shoot whoever fails to cooperate with them.

“All of us on duty lay down and allowed them to carry out their operation without any hindrance. They asked everybody, including the patients, to bring out money and those who did not have any money were beaten up. We tried to call the police but could not because they had collected our phones,” he added.

The source said nobody was killed.

It was gathered that immediately after the operation in the first hospital, the victims reported the matter at the police station.

But less than 24 hours later, another operation was carried out in another hospital by the same gang.

Police spokesman Femi Joseph could not be reached for comments but an officer in the State Anti-Robbery Squad said the police were investigating the incidents.

This Ghana Man Claims He Has Had S'ex With Over 183 Women For Ritual

A 28-year-old Ghana man,Kwame Assenso, has confessed to sleeping with over 183 women for money rituals, sending the women in his country into a panic mode.

In a report by Daily Guide newspaper, Assenso, who is a gold dealer at Obuasi in the Ashanti Region, revealed that he used the vaginal fluids from the women to fortify his money rituals.

In an extensive confession, Assenso who said he is now a born again Christian, explained that in his quest for money and power, he was introduced to a native doctor at Navrongo in the Upper East Region, who gave him a money god.

Narrating how he came by his money, Assenso narrated that the native doctor instructed him to sleep with women and use the vaginal fluids of the victims to perform rituals for the blood money.

“It all started a year ago when I was introduced to this Mallam by my friends. I wanted to fortify my position as a gold dealer and get more money as well. He helped me out by giving me a money god which needed the vaginal fluids of women.

I paid each of the women between GHc 300 and GHc 500 for a night’s encounter, which all happened at my residence in Obuasi. But I met this prayerful woman and brought her home for s'ex one night and that turned out to be the end of the road for me.

I had just come out of the shower to meet her praying, an act which made me motionless. I asked why she was praying, and she replied that it was nothing. I could not touch her and since then, till my deliverance, I experienced nightmares,” he disclosed.

Assenso narrated that he began experiencing recurrent nightmares, and therefore went to a powerful man of God in that country,Prophet Kofi Sarfo, the General Overseer of the Covenant Life Church for spiritual intervention, where he made the startling revelation of the blood money and the number of women he preyed upon.

Assenso asked the victims of his blood money for forgiveness and pledged to use the proceeds to help the poor, professing that he had turned over a new leaf.

“Our women like money and I want them to know that not all that glitters is gold. They should be careful and not cheapen themselves for money,” he concluded.

OMG! 22-Year-Old Boy Steals Women Underwear To Satisfy His S3xual Urge

A 22-year-old boy Chigozie Ugwu, paraded by the Anambra State Police Command for stealing as much as 52 women’s underwear has said he indulges in the act to satisfy his s*xual urge.

Chigozie said he had no girlfriend and felt like he was having s*xual intercourse any time he picks a woman’s pant, even as he pleaded that the police should release him and let him go home.

The suspect claimed he was not aware that his action was an offence until security operatives arrested him. While peaking with the Southern City News, Chigozie said, “I didn’t know that it was an offence to take women’s pants. I don’t have any girlfriend. So, each time I am with any woman’s underwear, I feel like I am making love.

“That’s why I go about picking and keeping women’s pants. I didn’t know it was an offence until the police arrested me. Please, tell them to release me. I didn’t intend to steal those things. I think, it’s a spiritual problem,” he said.

- The police are considering what to do with Chigozie and his pants stealing craze.

Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan's ADC Finally Opens On The N10Bn (Read)

Former President Goodluck Jonathan’s detained ex-Aide-de-Camp (ADC) Col. Ojogbane Adegbe has passed the buck on the N10billion "gift" for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) delegates.

He has told the EFCC to ask Jonathan’s former Special Assistant on Domestic Affairs, Waripamowei Dudafa to account for the cash, an inside source revealed.

The ADC said when the suitcases containing the cash were brought as messages for the President, he merely handed them over to Dudafa...

He said military law forbids him from opening message meant for the President, unless otherwise directed.

Also, one of the Army officers being questioned over the $2.1billion arms purchase scandal, Col. N. Ashinze, the former Special Military Assistant to the ex-NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), is stranded as he could not resume in his new posting as the nation’s Military Attache to the Nigerian Embassy in Germany.

Although Col. Ashinze has been released from EFCC custody and restricted to the Officers Mess, there was anxiety that he might be dropped from the foreign mission.

Jonathan connected to the money
The N10bn withdrawn from the oil block account at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) for PDP delegates to its nomination convention has been a knotty issue because it was based on the instruction of the former President, according to a source close to the investigation.

The source said: “The ADC has spoken with investigators. He said when the suit cases containing the N10bn were brought as messages for the ex-President, he did not open them but he handed over the items to SA Domestic Affairs.

So, it is only the SA Domestic Affairs (Dudafa), who has sneaked out of the country, who will need to provide the list of beneficiaries. This is the status of the case.
“If Dudafa does not show up, we may declare him wanted in connection with the N10billion cash or seek the court’s permission to attach his property. We are exploring mutual legal assistance with some countries to fish out Dudafa wherever he is hiding abroad.”

''Living With Poor People Makes You Poor!' - OAP Freeze Shares His Poverty Story

This Article was written by Controversial OAP Ifedayo Olarinde A.K.A Freeze...I decided to share it with you guys today instead of Yesterday. This was written by freeze alright but this might just be your story

He says ''Does living with poor people make you poor? Well yes, here is my story! 

I lived in Aremo, in Ibadan a very poor ghetto for almost 15years. Growing up, my house was the only house with a perimeter fence within a ten mile radius. Every house in my neighbourhood was in the 'face me, I face you' format! Bariga is much better than where I lived, because Bariga is a hood in Lagos. Mine was a hood in the village - much worse. 

I always knew I was different from my neighbours. I didn't share their ideas, taste in music, fashion sense and general outlook of life. Do you know that it was so bad that no girl agreed to date me because according to them I was 'different'. At 19 i got my first job in BCOS IBADAN and moved out of my parents home into a BQ in Bodija, a much nicer area and the effect was immediate, girls understood me better and I had my first relationships.


 I was now among people that shared my ideas and mentality. As soon as I was done with school, I relocated to Lagos. 

Let me ask you guys, how do you think I would have turned out if I didn't upgrade my mind and friends? 

Or if I didn't move out of the ghetto? Only one or 2 out of the 20 of us that played together as kids amounted to anything. I remember vividly the last time I saw my childhood best friend Banji(real name) he was a bus driver and Waheed the kid I played table tennis with a had become a VULCANIZER or Kehinde whom I was very close to at a point is now a gravedigger. 


I know this sounds funny but it's true, these are actual people. And at least they had real jobs as most ended up living a life of crime! If my best friends had become drivers, vulcanizers and gravediggers what were my prospects if I didn't change location? 

What were my chances of becoming successful? 

Someone sent me an insulting DM, saying to me that if I were Bill Gates I would discriminate against poor people, simply because I advised against 'hanging out in places of poverty. My answer was simple; "let Bill Gates move to Aremo for 15years and let's see how well he would do there".

 By poor people I don't mean people in a state of financial depression, I am actually talking about people who are in a state of mental impoverishment!''

37-Year-Old Fake Naval Officer Arrested, Weeks To Wedding (Photos)

37-year-old fake Naval officer, Ahmed Abdullahi, (pictured above), has been arrested by The Lagos State Police Command in the Victoria Island.

Punch Metro learnt that Abdullahi from Adamawa State was apprehended while he was on a trip to Lekki, reportedly to raise money for his wedding billed for March 27.

It was gathered that when Abdullahi, who rode a motorcycle, was accosted by the police around the tollgate area on Wednesday, he allegedly showed them his fake naval identity card.

It was said that when the policemen were about to let him go, some people in the area reportedly hinted the police that Abdullahi was impersonating and he had been on the navy wanted list.

Punch Metro gathered that the suspect was thereafter arrested and two fake ID cards recovered from him.

Speaking with the Punch correspondent, Abdullahi said he got the fake ID card to protect his motorcycle from traffic officials, including the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority and policemen.

Abdullahi added that his bride and parents, who were in Adamawa State, had yet to know that he had been arrested by the police, pleading that he should be freed to go and plan his wedding.

He said, “I am not a robber, but it is true that I impersonated a naval officer. I started impersonating in December 2015. I am a motorcyclist, and I wanted to be able to move on roads without any restriction.

“I wanted to avoid trouble from area boys, LASTMA officials and policemen. I came to Lagos last year and I am preparing for my wedding in Adamawa. My bride, Aisha, and my parents do not know that I have been arrested. The police did not allow me to call them. It is only my neighbours in Obalende, where I stay, who know.”

The suspect added that he got the ID card from a friend in Abuja after paying him a sum of N1,000.

“I want to go back to Adamawa so I can prepare for my wedding on March 27. If I survive this case, I will not come to Lagos State again. I will just settle down with my family in Adamawa and work on my father’s farm.”

The Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, who paraded Abdullahi and other suspects, said the suspects, if found culpable, would be charged to court, adding that the command would continue to ensure security of lives and property in the state.
