The Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, led by Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), has said it will set up a team to monitor judges handling corruption cases.
The committee disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday in support of the move by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, to create special courts for corruption and financial crimes.
Onnoghen had also announced that judges handling such cases would be closely monitored by the National Judicial Council.
In a statement signed by Sagay, the committee said it would also be monitoring the judges to ensure that corrupt persons were brought to book.
The statement read in part, “Judges handling corruption cases are now going to be monitored by the NJC itself. This is a new era in the administration of criminal justice. Let me add that PACAC is also planning to create separate monitoring teams.
“We heartily congratulate the CJN and pledge that we shall work closely with him in this new and great enterprise to revive the judiciary and justice in Nigeria.”
While commending Onnoghen, the presidential committee said it was hopeful that with the new judicial reform, the era of corrupt judges would soon be over.
It said Nigeria would have upright judges like Kayode Eso, Andrews Obaseki, Udo Udoma, Mohammed Bello, Chukwudifu Oputa, Adetokunbo Ademola, Louis Mbanefo, Adetunji Adefarasin, Mason Begho and others.
The statement added, “We in PACAC have received with great delight the recent declaration of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, that major transformations are going to occur in the administration of criminal justice which will not only expedite the trial of corruption cases but will also ensure efficient, effective and speedy processes in these proceedings.
“This will guarantee that justice will come to looters and other high profile criminal elements responsible through their fraud and economic sabotage for the economic adversity of Nigeria, its underdevelopment and the pain and suffering of its masses.
“By ordering the creation of criminal divisions with special focus on corruption cases in all the high courts of the country, the Chief Justice has demonstrated his commitment to the speedy eradication of corruption, the cleansing of the judiciary and the determination to restore that vital institution to its rightful place not only in the constitution of this country but also to the golden age.”

Lil Wayne was hospitalized yet again this weekend for his ongoing bout with epilepsy and the seizures that come with it, TMZ reports. He was hospitalized Sunday in Chicago after he was found unconscious in his hotel room at the Westin on Michigan Avenue after suffering at least one seizure. .
He was rushed to Northwestern Memorial, where he suffered yet another seizure. His team tried to have him discharged late Sunday afternoon so he could make it to his Vegas show. .
However, doctors advised against the discharge, saying he should be grounded for a few days. Wayne has suffered seizures while flying before, and the doctors felt it was too risky. Seizures have plagued Wayne for years.
Wizkid is presently not in a good state of health if his tweets are anything to dwell upon.
For the singer to cancel his tour, we can only conclude that he is as sick as we feared as he has called on his real fans to put him in our prayers.
Taking to twitter this afternoon, Wizkid announced that he would not be able to go on with his tour as he realises the need to pay attention to his health which is deteriorating.
He however went dramatic when he twitted “If I die, I die a legend” a tweet that would have been understandable if Wizkid was suffering from a terminal illness.
Recall that early this year, Wizkid cancelled his shows on Doctor’s orders, saying he needed to pay attention to his health which so far hasn’t been named.
He also made it known that he would be spending time with his sons and family while he recovers. He urges his true fans to remember him in prayers!
We wish him a quick recovery!
I hope he is not suffering from depression because it is such a weird thing to say. Oya get well soon Daddy yo, please don’t die just yet.

from @_indianrosee – What god has brought me through and delivered me from I am so grateful. LUPUS is an autoimmune disease that makes the body attack itself , your body doesn’t recognize when it’s being attack and fights with any infection that your body comes across. I am currently diagnosed with 17 diagnoses. Lupus Nephritis , SLE , Discoid Lupus , Blood clots , High blood pressure , high pulse , hypoglycemic , bronchitis , Arthritis & more. He has delivered me from the worst and wish for nothing but the best. People don’t know the struggle I had with my identity and that I had with myself during this period but the family I have and the spouse I have keeps me pushing. ❤️ thank you god for sending me a man that loves me for me to the moon and back and god known what he was doing when he brought you to me. 😘😘 “
Conor McGregor’s money-spinning fight with Floyd Mayweather was stopped in the 10th round because of ‘mild traumatic brain injury’ to McGregor, according to a ringside physician. .
The McGregor claimed he was merely fatigued after going toe-to-toe with the unbeaten American and suggested referee Robert Boyd should have let the fight continue to the bell in the 10th round.
But Darragh O’Carroll, MD, praised the man in the middle for calling a halt to the fight when he did. Writing on TONIC, O’Carroll said: “Byrd’s calculation to call a stoppage was likely not based on signs of fatigue, but rather signs of traumatic brain injury. .
Ataxia, or dizziness and loss of balance, is one of the hallmarks of concussion, a type of mild traumatic brain injury. Fatigue may cause sluggish and slow movements, but does not cause the imbalance and poor coordination exhibited by McGregor in the 10th round.
Being wobbly, in the setting of pugilistic trauma, will always be treated as the result of head trauma and not as fatigue. To let a fighter continue on would be grossly negligent.
Continuing the fight would have put McGregor at risk for continued head trauma, risking a future of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or at worst, repetitive damage leading to a severe traumatic brain injury such as a brain bleed.
It wouldn’t be the first time a boxer experienced this, as was tragically the case just this year to young Daniel Franco, who required emergency neurosurgery to save his life.”

Court orders final forfeiture of Diezani’s N7.6bn loot .
The Federal High Court in Lagos has ordered the final forfeiture of a sum of N7,646,700,000 loot by a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, to the FG.
On August 9, 2017, vacation judge Justice Chuka Obiozor granted an order temporarily forfeiting the money to the FG. Justice Obiozor’s order followed an ex parte application argued before him by EFCC.
He adjourned till today for the bank and any other interested party to appear before him to show cause why the funds should not be permanently forfeited to the FG.
The EFCC told the judge that the N7.6 billion was part of a sum of $153,310,000, which Mrs. Alison-Madueke allegedly siphoned from the coffers of NNPC sometime in 2014.
The anti-graft agency said she stashed the money in three banks, adding that the FG had since February last year, through an order by Justice Muslim Hassan of the Federal High Court, Lagos recovered part of the money from the other banks.
The anti-graft agency recalled that the FG had recovered N23.4 billion, $5 million and another N9.08 billion of the $153.3m million. It urged the court to order Sterling Bank to deliver up to the FG the N7.6 billion still in its custody.
On August 7, 2017, Justice Obiozor ordered the permanent forfeiture to the Federal Government of a $37.5million Banana Island property allegedly bought in 2013 by Mrs. Alison-Madueke.
The judge also ordered that $2,740,197.96 and N84,537,840.70 realized as rent on the property be permanently forfeited to the government.
Last Tuesday, the Federal High Court in Lagos ordered the interim forfeiture of 56 houses allegedly bought between 2011 and 2013 for $21,982,224 (N3.32bn) by Diezani.
Jehovah’s Witness convention in Angola was attacked with toxic gas on Friday, causing over 400 people to faint. A local news source, Portal de Angola, reported on Saturday that three young men were detained after the attack.
According to the report, some 7,000 worshippers were at a venue on the outskirts of Luanda for the weekend-long convention. Forty-three victims were rushed to the hospital, but no deaths have been reported.
A witness, Abraham Kituxi, told Portal de Angola that his sister-in-law was one of the first to collapse. She told him that she had smelled something foul before passing out.
Shortly thereafter, more people began collapsing, creating panic throughout the venue. Some witnesses called the police and firefighters, who assisted with evacuating the victims to Cazenga Municipal Hospital and Cajueiros Hospital.
Police arrested three suspects, and four are believed to be on the run. They could not identify the toxic substance, but noted that it was in containers of 750 thousand liters spread throughout the venue.
A dad-of-five battling aggressive bowel cancer has told of his heartbreak after losing his wife to the same illness. Devastated friends of Omena Ubiaro fear his young boys could lose both their parents within weeks of one another. .
Omena, 38, had been battling Stage 4 bowel cancer for two years when wife Makeda was diagnosed with the disease last August. Makeda, also 38, underwent emergency surgery but could not be saved by doctors and died on July 29. .
Her death during Omena’s battle with cancer has sparked fears for the couple’s five sons, aged from seven to 19, as friends launched a fundraising page to support the family. .
As part of the appeal, Omena said the death of his beloved wife and ongoing fight against cancer is the “toughest thing” he has ever dealt with. So far, more than £8,000 has been raised. .
In an emotional video filmed from a hospice in Wolverhampton, where Omena is receiving round-the-clock care, the grieving dad appears gaunt as he is hooked up to machines from his bed. .
Omena said: “I just want to say thank you so much to everybody that has been supporting myself and my family. Recently, myself and my five boys we’ve just lost my wife, they’ve lost a mother and I’ve also lost a best friend as well.
It’s been difficult for the boys, it’s been difficult for myself. I cannot lie it has been the toughest thing that a husband and a father’s ever had to face or deal with but it’s only been easier with support and help from friends.” .
Omena and Makeda met when they were teenagers at St Francis Xavier College in Clapham, South London. They married in 2004 and moved to Birmingham in 2009. In 2014, the couple decided to renew their wedding vows when Omena was diagnosed with Stage 4 colorectal cancer. .

A woman’s leg has swelled to enormous proportions in a potentially-deadly condition. Rezia Begum’s, 40, right leg weighs around 60kg due to suspected elephantiasis. .
The mother-of-two, from Bangladesh, has suffered with the condition ever since the birth of her second daughter 18 years ago. Although it is unclear how Ms Begum’s condition affects her, she says she is now dependent on the support of her relatives. .
Ms Begum said: ‘I was like any other normal woman but now I’m a burden on my poor family.’ Although she is being cared for at Dhaka Medical College Hospital in Bangladesh, she is yet to begin treatment. .
Surgery and additional tests are required before therapy can start. The cause of Ms Begum’s condition is unclear, however, previous reports of other cases revealed the disorder can be caused by roundworms entering the body via mosquitoes. .
If the swelling spreads from the legs to the abdomen, the condition can be fatal. Elephantiasis affects around 120 million people globally. It is characterised by the massive enlargement of an area of the body due to obstruction of the lymphatic system. This results in the accumulation of fluids in the affected part of the body.
