Why I Mention Dangote, Otedola In My Songs - Teni

Why I Mention Dangote, Otedola In My Songs - Teni
Teni Apata, popularly known as Teni the entertainer, is one singer who often mentions the names of prominent people in her songs.

In the past, Teni had mentioned the names of business tycoons such as Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola in her songs, which made the songs more popular and acceptable.

In an encounter with Sunday Scoop, the award-winning singer explained why she often called people’s names in her music. “I grew up being exposed to a lot of culture and one essential part of that is praise-singing people. I decided to incorporate that practice into my songs so that people could relate more with them,” she said.

Contrary to what many believe that Teni’s Billionaire EP is all about the brazen pursuit of money, the plump singer said the title song and EP were centred on encouraging people to live their best lives. She stated, “This project basically encourages people to lead their best lives, achieve their dreams and generally enjoy what life has to offer. No doubt, life has its challenges, but sometimes, one just needs to take a break and enjoy it.”

On the misconceptions people have about her, the cheerful singer said, “I don’t really know the misconceptions that people have about me but I try to be myself at all times. Being real is the best thing one can do in this world.”

3 Arrested For Stealing Female Pants In Niger State

Men of the Niger State Police Command have apprehended three people suspected to be stealing pants in the Lapai and Kaffin-Koro areas of the state.

The suspects, Mohammed Ali, 24; Ephraim Isaiah, 19 and Abubakar Sadiq, 18, were trailed and arrested by the police operatives attached to Lapai and Kiffin-Koro Divisions while trying to escape.

It was learnt that Ali and others were in the act for more than two years, removing female pants spread on the clothes lines.

Punch correspondent on Friday gathered that Ali was contacted by one of his accomplices to steal four female pants for N20, 000. He was reportedly about to steal the third pants when he was caught by the people who handed him over to the police.

Ali stated, “One Madaji Yabajeko from Agaie is my customer who comes to sew clothes from me. He approached me to steal pants for him, that if I steal four pants, he will pay me N20, 000.

“I have stolen three pants so far and gave them to him but he has not paid me. He said he would pay me after the pants are complete.”

Ali further said he stole the pants when the residents were not at home but on the day he was caught, he did not know the owner of the pants was around.

“I steal pants from the windows of the student’s lodge off campus. The last one which they caught me, I did not know the owner was at home. As I put my hand inside the bathroom to take the pant, that was how she shouted and people cane around and I was caught.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, Abubakar Muhammad, confirmed the incident, saying the suspects had confessed to the crime.

Abubakar further advised females to be cautious of how they spread their underwear as there were perpetrators prowling around to use the underwear “for only-God-knows purposes.”

I Killed 9 Not 10 Girls But Ask Police To Give Back My Money - Serial Killer Tells Court
Serial killer, Gracious David-West, has pleaded guilty to nine out of the 10 count charges preferred against him.

“My Lord, I killed all other girls in the hotels but that one in Bendel Street, which is the 10th charge. I did not have in mind to
kill her, I only tied her to the chair,” the accused told the court after the charges were read to him by Rivers State Police Command.

He, however, pleaded for forgiveness after pleading guilty to nine counts out of 10, stressing that he told the court the truth so he could be forgiven and that he committed the crimes under satanic influence.

He added that the police seized his N60,000, necklace, and wristwatch, urging the court to compel the police to release the said items to him.

After the suspect pleaded guilty, the Rivers State Government, through the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Zacchaeus Adango, applied to take over the prosecution of the matter and the application was granted.

The trial judge, Justice Enebeli, granted the application of the state government, expressing readiness to give a speedy hearing to the case, describing it as a very sensitive matter that needs accelerated

The judge adjourned the matter until November 18, 21, 27 and 29 and December 4 for hearing and remanded the suspect in prison custody.

One of the lawyers from the state Ministry of Justice, Chidi Boniface Ekeh, said the state took over the case because it was considered a very sensitive matter.

He said: “We took over the matter to ensure that the case is prosecuted to its logical conclusion. This is a very sensitive matter
and the state should not be ignored.

“The people David-West killed are human beings and the state has the right to protect the citizens and if anyone goes contrary, the state wants to see that justice is done."

David-West was arraigned before a Rivers State High Court on a 10-count charge bordering on conspiracy and murder.

He was brought to the court on Monday but the matter was stalled due to the absence of a defence counsel.

I bought bicycle for myself when I was in class 4 in primary school. I never bothered to ask my parents for money to buy school uniform. I did my NCE selling bread.

I am currently going for my final year in the Federal University Gusau. That is how I became who I am today. Right now as we speak, it is bread in front of me,” Abdulmalik Saidu Maibiredi, 24, said.

Pastor’s Wife Catches Husband In Secret Wedding With Another Female Pastor (Photos)

Pastor’s Wife Catches Husband In Secret Wedding With Another Female Pastor (Photos)
The game of betrayals reportedly played out on Saturday in Ikotun area of Lagos between three supposed ministers of God after Pastor Olusegun Taiwo dumped his wife, Vicky, in Ogun State and secretly got engaged to another female pastor, Madam Wonder, and were eventually caught by his wife.

P.M.Express confirmed that the secret wedding between Pastor Olusegun Taiwo and the new wife, Pastor Wonder, took place at the Triumphant Base Global Ministry located at No. 6 Mathew Ojo Street by Whitehouse Bus Stop, off Governor’s Road, Ikotun, Lagos.

Pastor Olusegun, who lives at Ijoko area of Ogun State, arranged the wedding in Ikotun area of Lagos so that his wife would not know. But information got to his wife, she came to the wedding venue and disgraced Olusegun and his new wife, Wonder.

Pastor Olusegun was married but had separated with many wives, who had six children, before he got married to Vicky, who was also married but separated and had two children in 2011.

 They went to Ikeja Marriage Registry to consummate the union, which subsists and they started a Church known as Christ Like Evangelical Mission with over N5m raised by Pastor Vicky. But the Church collapsed and Olusegun absconded from his home, where the church was located.

“When he finished my money, he absconded three years ago only to be informed that he had engaged another lady and their wedding was for today” Pastor Vicky said.

Pastor Taiwo’s game of betrayal was exposed when Pastor Vicky stormed the venue of the wedding and informed the guests that he was her legal husband and had not divorced her before engaging in another marriage with the female pastor, Wonder.

Some of the guests, who heard Pastor Vicky’s claims quickly left the venue of the wedding while Pastor Olusegun Taiwo almost collapsed when he sighted his wife at the wedding.

It was gathered that the Pastor might have convinced his new wife having assured her that he had no woman in his life before Pastor Vicky surfaced at the wedding venue.

P.M.Express gathered that Pastor Olusegun might have embarked on the new marriage after he realized that his new wife, Pastor Wonder, had many properties including a Church and was said to be partially blind probably to assist her to manage them.

It was not certain if the marriage will still stand after Pastor Olusegun’s legal wife raised alarm at the wedding venue and Pastor Wonder’s relations from Akwa Ibom State heard the shocking revelations from Pastor Vicky at the wedding venue.

A journalist whose undercover stories exposed the depth of corruption in Nigerian police cells and prison may be arrested by the Nigerian authorities, a report from The Guardian newspaper claims

The first instalment of the three-part investigation by Fisayo Soyombo, a former editor of The Cable and a contributor to Al Jazeera, detailed how Nigerian policemen “pervert the course of justice in their quest for ill-gotten money”.

During his investigation, Soyombo took on an alias – Ojo Olajumoke – spent five days in a cell at Pedro Police Station, Shomolu, Lagos. And eight days in Ikoyi prison.

His reports contained audio, pictorial and video evidence of corruption in the Nigerian judicial system.

Suspect Confesses To Kidnapping In Niger State (Photo)

Suspect Confesses To Kidnapping In Niger State (Photo)
A-35-year-old man, Mohammed Betuwa, suspected to be a member of a five-man gang of kidnappers in Katsina State, has confessed to taking part in the abduction of the daughter of one Sariki Aliyu of the Kudun-Gure Fulani Settlement Camp, Kotonkoro, in the Mariga Local Government Area of Niger State.

The suspect, who is the only member of the gang currently in police custody, confessed to taking part in the crime in an interview with Punch correspondent in Minna on Thursday.

Betuwa said, “I am struggling to meet my responsibility as the head of the family. I have two wives and seven children; I started kidnapping to make quick money when the cattle rustling business I started in 2015 was not bringing in enough.

“My wives know that I am a kidnapper; it is through the business that I take care of them.”

He explained that the gang leader, Hamidu Buden, introduced him to the kidnapping venture.

“My greatest worry now is my mother; if she gets to know that I am a kidnapper, she will place a curse on me that will follow me till the end of my life,” Batuwa added.

It was gathered that the incident that led to the suspect’s arrest occurred on September 29, 2019, when Aliyu reported to the police that five persons invaded his compound and kidnapped his daughter.

According to the report, the men fired gunshots into the air to scare away villagers before whisking his daughter away to an unknown destination.

On receiving the report, a team of police detectives attached to the Bangi Division chased after the fleeing abductors and the suspect was arrested in the process and the victim rescued unhurt.

Northern City News gathered that only Betuwa was arrested during the operation as his four accomplices took to their heels and have not been seen since then.

The second-in-command to the state Police Public Relations Officer, Uthman Umar, confirmed the incident.

He said the suspect confessed to the crime, adding that police operatives recovered an empty shell of AK-47 ammunition from the scene.

Umar added that detectives were on the trail of the fleeing suspects and that the case would  be charged as soon as investigation was concluded.

Dad Who Fathered Six Children With His Daughter Found Guilty Of 36 Rap3s

Dad Who Fathered  Six Children With His Daughter Found Guilty Of 36 Rap3s
A vile dad who fathered "at least" six children with his daughter in a 20 year campaign of abuse has been found guilty of 36 charges of rap3.

The man, who cannot be identified in order to protect his daughter, was also convicted for one s3x assault.

During his trial at Swansea Crown Court, the woman said her father told her he wanted to "teach" her how to have s3x so she knew what to do with future boyfriends.

He would come into her room as she slept and abuse her, jurors were told during the harrowing trial.

She told the court she became pregnant with her first child at the age of 14, and reported the assaults to police in 2018.

She also suffered two miscarriages and had one termination, Wales Online reports .

Judge Paul Thomas told the rapist that in his 40 years as a judge it was "one of the worst cases he had ever dealt with".

He warned the man he faced a "very long" sentence.

The prosecution said he used elements of witchcraft and the occult to manipulate his victims, including creating a fake mystic who told the females to perform s3x acts with him.

When he gave evidence in his defence, he admitted having s3x with the girl from the time she was 14 but said that when she was a teenager she blackmailed him into continuing a sexual relationship.

In an interview with police, she said her father told her: “We are soul mates, we have been together through so many lifetimes. We are meant to be together.”

And she said she was forced into sex with him, stating: “I knew that was wrong and I thought it would never happen again but I was wrong. It happened at least two to three times a week.

“I had to deal with that in my mind. I knew it was coming - whether it was in my bed or in the car or on the beach that he would have s3x with me.

“He did it several times in a short space of time and would go a week or two without anything and then back the way it was.

“It was continuous. I was scared to say anything.”

The alleged abuse took place when she was aged between 14 and 18, the court heard.

The daughter explained during a police interview she had been guided to a secluded area where he grabbed her hand and forced her touch his p.e.n.i.s, telling her: “It’s not wrong”. She said he told her: “I’m going to teach you how to do it right.”

She said in interview how sexual intercourse followed and her dad told her: “You will learn from this.”

She said: “It made me feel very dirty. We went back to the car. I would not talk to him. He told me my attitude better change before I get home.”

And she told police she had been abused 20 or 30 times in her dad's car, saying in a recorded interview: “If we went out in the car at nighttime, just me and him, he would find somewhere secluded and make me do it in the back of the car.

“He was always very quick in his decision-making and say ‘We will have a quickie there’; ‘Let’s do it there and go home’.

“It happened in the car probably 20 to 30 times.”

Speaking during his trial, the dad accepted having s3x with his daughter, but claimed he was blackmailed.

Asked whether his wife knew what was going on, he says he didn’t know and that she used to “drink and go to bed early”.

He says: “She was always telling me I have got to know my place otherwise there would be trouble. I was terrified of what she could do to me.”
