instablog9ja-1519688870649

Bad pay day for this guy right here, as the EFCC on Wednesday, January 24, 2018, arrested one Fidelis Iruedo, a suspected love scammer, for allegedly defrauding a United Kingdom citizen of £30,000 in a romance scam.

Luck ran out of Iruedo, 31, after a petition to the Commission by the Nigerian High Commission, London, on behalf of one Alan Digweed, a UK citizen, alleging that the suspect had defrauded his victim of the said amount of money.

Investigations by the EFCC revealed that Iruedo, who voluntarily confessed to the crime, met his victim between July and December 2017, via a date site, match.com.
The suspect, while parading as a lady, procured British passport using the name ‘Tracy Anderson’ with which he used to defraud the victim.

He was arrested in Abuja, during an attempt to make withdrawal in a bank. On arrest, items recovered from him include: several scam letters, 3 flash drives, 1 iphone and a laptop computer. The suspect will be arraigned in court as soon as investigations are concluded.

The case of 99 days for the thief, and one day for the owner. He should be used as a scape goat to send a message to this colleagues all around the Nation.

Nigerians provoked by the photos of under aged voters from Kano State.

Kano state voting fraud

Nigerians passively panic in disbelief as they point accusing fingers at INEC,  while expressing their hopelessness  for the credibility of Nigeria’s 2019 elections,  after pictures of underage voters emerged from last Saturday’s local polls in Kano State, Northern Nigeria. This comes years after the Southern part of the Country Called out its Northern counterpart, for always dubiously inflating it’s actually population with the intent to gain revenue allocation, and  base to carry out fraudulent acts that concerns that country. But the Northern part of the Country is always ready to state the fact that the Hausas are known to have  too many children in a family, an act that is wildly practised in Islam. So with that being said, they said that would always guarantee their victory in elections.

Observers, including the Centre for Information Technology And Development, CITAD, and Action Aid International Nigeria, said they witnessed voting by underage citizens during the elections, with pictures and videos as evidences, that have flooded social media to create awareness to the rest of the Country. The still and motion pictures of underage citizens taking part in the electoral process allegedly during the polls in Kano have been circulating on the social media since Saturday, fueling wild concerns that such irregularities could have negative implications for the general elections, about one year away.

Kano state voting fraud

However, in a statement by a spokesperson, Oluwole Uzzi, on Tuesday, INEC said the disturbing pictures did not relate to any election it conducted or had responsibility for, thereby allaying fears over its capacity for credible elections.

INEC is statutorily empowered to conduct all Nigeria’s elections, except the ones to the local government councils conducted by the electoral commissions in each state.

Acknowledging the pictures of the underage voters, the commission stated that “as far as we can ascertain, they (the pictures) relate to a local government election conducted at the weekend (in Kano)”.

“While the Commission remains resolute in our commitment to sanitise the nation’s electoral process and deliver free, fair and credible elections, we cannot be held directly or vicariously liable for a process outside our legal purview,” INEC said.

“Our part, INEC assures the public that we are doing all we can to ensure a credible election.”

However, INEC’s assurance may be doubted if it becomes established that the Kano State Independent Electoral Commission, KANSIEC, used the national commission’s voters’ register and the pictured underage voters were accredited using that.

While Nigeria’s recent elections have earned positive reviews from local and international observers, the local ones organised by the electoral commission in various states remain subject of worries and constitute a downside to the country’s 19-year old democracy.

It is not just that the state electoral commissions are barely independent, it has also been observed that the opposition parties and their candidates for the local council elections have limited chance at an open and fair process.

For instance, in the recent elections in Kano, Kwara, Osun and Benue States the ruling All Progressives Congress, or the Peoples Democratic Party in the case of Ekiti State and Akwa Ibom State, won all the contested seats amid serious allegations of brazen irregularities.

This has prompted the National Assembly to amend the country’s law so that local elections would also be conducted by INEC, thus scrapping state electoral commissions. That amendment is, however, sill in the process of becoming law.

INEC also said it is aware of the challenges people face in trying to get registered at some centres.

To address this problem, the commission said it had taken two steps, including the deployment of more direct data capturing machines for registration and increasing the number of the registration centres to 1,446 nationwide.

“We believe that with the measures taken so far the queues and other identified challenges will soon abate,” the commission said.

Corruption growth: Mystery snake swallows N36m cash in JAMB office.

Ridiculously fraudulent tale

At some point, someone has to come out and openly call the people of Nigeria fools, because the rate at which these unimaginable, insulting, provoking ways that money is being stolen and embezzled on a daily basis, and how the perpetuators are being handled, is beginning to come too frequent. This is the case of the perplexed management of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, as they are hit with a new tales, as they are still yet to come to terms with an explanation by an official in the Makurdi, Benue State office of the Board, that proceeds from the sale of admission scratch cards in the state, totaling N36million. The explanation came as a shock to the readers and listeners of this ridiculous show of shame, where a missing N36million is aid to have been swallowed by a mysterious snake that only comes at night.

According to the mind burg king tales, the mystery snake was said to have sneaked into the account office of the Board in Makurdi, a number of times, and made away with the N36m.
A sales clerk, Philomina Chieshe, told JAMB registrar and his team that she could not account for the N36m she made in previous years before the abolition of scratch cards. In the course of interrogation, Philomena denied the allegations that she stole the money, there by blaming it all on the money hungry mysterious snake.

Ridiculously fraudulent tale
Ridiculously fraudulent tale

She however confessed that it was her housemaid that connived with another JAMB staff, Joan Asen, to “spiritually” steal the money from the vault in the account office, in the form of a snake.
Philomina, in her confessional statement, said that Joan Asen and her accomplices confessed that they have been stealing the money “spiritually” through a mysterious snake that always sneak into the office to swallow the money from the vault.
According to her “It was a mystery to me too. I have been saving the money in the bank, but I found it difficult to account for it. So I started saving it in a vault in the office. But each time I open the vault, I will find nothing.

First of all, the reason why Philomens assumed that saving a whooping sum of N36million in the vault, is safer than saving it in the bank, raises red flag. The fact that she clearly stated that money wasn’t taken at once, but instead, was done a number of times, only suggest that she knows exactly what went down,or she is incredibly retarded. Mind you, N36million, is not N36k. This is a very significant pile of cash, that is hard to miss even in the Country’s highest denomination, which is a thousand Naira. How on earth can Philomena say she couldn’t account for this money when it was in the bank, and then brought it back to the manual way of putting it in a vault, and still can’t account for the money. She is clearly not being truthful. Bear it in mind that Benue people are known to be highly diabolical, and this might be the case of looking for the weakest person to blame for the crime, and it happen to be her maid of all people.

I have reasons to believe the prominent people involved in this embezzlement, are higher than Philomena, and that alone, increase the magnitude of the case, because the age using Philomena, and She I turn, Is using the maid. The only thing that would blow up this case to make it smell and scream foul, is when the maid is asked where the money is, and she says she has spent it all. This means that she is only being used by higher powers. She is a poor maid, there is no way she would have spent the entire N36million.  This is a very embarrassing case, and While writing this, I almost felt stupid for giving such joke of a news an attention, but then again, it is news, and that is what I am here to provide.

instablog9ja-1518190739243

Ex-First Lady Patience Jonathan’s sister Esther Oba,  has been arrested by the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) and handed over to the EFCC, TheNation reports.

EFCC investigators are to interrogate her in connection with the alleged laundering of over N359m through two firms linked with the former First Lady. The companies are AM-PM Global Networks Limited and Finchley Homes Limited.

About N317m was traced to the suspect in AM-PM Global Networks Limited. She is expected to explain how she came about the management of N42million in Finchley Homes Limited.

Esther Oba was arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport at about noon shortly after arriving from Dubai in company of her husband, three children and a house help.

EFCC sources said the suspect is central to the ongoing probe of the former First Lady. One of the sources said: “We have been looking for her but she has been faceless. We watch-listed her for arrest by any security agency.

Fortunately at about noon on Monday, the Nigerian Immigration Service(NIS) contacted us that she was arrested while returning from Dubai with her husband and three children. She was arrested at Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport.”

Drug..Fraudulentreals

A Lagos state socialite has been arrested for drug trafficking .

instablog9ja-1517665188117

According to Instanlog9ja hot gist,
A female graduate and a secondary school drop-out have been arrested by the officers of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, for the possession of illicit drugs. .

The suspects arrested are Harriet Bolatito Solabi, a 34-year old Higher National Diploma holder, and Victor Chukwu, a school drop-out. (According to Instablog9ja).

Solabi was nabbed on board an Ethiopian Airways aircraft that was set to depart the country with 3.9kg of ephedrine and 1.6kg of methamphetamine. .

Solabi was recalled after she had checked in two big bags she claimed to be filled with personal effects and had boarded the flight No.910 to Addis Ababa while awaiting take-off. The drugs were concealed in the false bottom of the bags.

The suspicion made the anti-narcotics agency to hold down the aircraft from take-off until all the personal effects of Solabi were evacuated for investigation purposes.

After her arrest, she feigned ignorance of the content of the bags, which she said she was requested by her contact in Pretoria, South Africa, to collect from an unknown person in Lagos. .

She also said she had arrived Abuja from Lagos on a local flight for an onward flight to Johannesburg. The NDLEA found that she had travelled to South Africa numerous times without hitches until she was arrested in Abuja. .

Solabi, a single mother of a 10-year old daughter, attended Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta. During the investigation, she told the NDLEA that she trades in fabrics, which she goes to bring from South Africa to bring to Nigeria and distribute to her customers.

The second suspect, Chukwu, 44, was also arrested with 59 wraps of heroin weighing 865 grammes, which he had ingested. He told the NDLEA that a black woman met him in a restaurant in Malawi and talked him into bringing the illicit substance to Nigeria.

He claimed he was to call her upon arrival in Nigeria for her to direct the recipient to him. He admitted knowing that he was handed an illicit substance but agreed to be a mule because of poverty.

Now this is a good catch for the NDLEA. While other Countries are seriously complaining about Nigerian youths and drugs,out authorities are doing all they can, to reduce these bad names they are tagging on the entire country due to our very significantly active bad beans. They make Trump and his people insult the Nation.

Corrupt Prof. Adenekan loses 5 houses for diverting N8bn meant for buying books for schools

instablog9ja-1517316404182

According to TheNation, the N8billion was meant for the purchase of science, technical and laboratory equipment to 104 Unity Schools. The suspect, who is also the Managing Director of Macmillan, was alleged to have paid out N5billion to some individuals and used part of the balance to buy some properties. .

The sealed properties include a duplex at 3A Prince Adesanya, Parkview Estate in Ikoyi; another duplex at Plot 10, Segun Olusemo Crescent, Parkview Ikoyi; and three others in Block B 1-6 Erinko Residential and Industrial Estate, Ijoko in Ogun State housing five firms. .

Also, eight firms linked with Adenekan are under probe with their accounts frozen in line with the ongoing investigation. .

A top source said : “The EFCC received a petition bordering on alleged reckless award of contracts in UBEC to launder public funds , diversion of contract sums, non-execution of contracts and misappropriation of funds. .

The petitioner alleged that about N100billion was involved but our detectives have so far traced about N20billion of the funds disbursed. .

We have confirmed that about N8billion worth of contracts(out of the preliminary N20billion being looked into) for the supply of science and technical equipment to 104 Unity Schools(mainly Federal Government Colleges) were not properly executed. .

Some schools received about 30% of their equipment, some got 40% and some 50%. About three to four schools in the North-East, particularly those sited in Boko Haram insurgency axis, did not receive any science and technical equipment. .

The detectives discovered that about N5billion was paid out to some individuals with a strong suspicion that it might have been diverted and used for 2015 general election.”

MY OPINION;

Can you just imagine this sort of report? This is all we ever hear of in this Country. Professional stealing taking place in ever wing of the government, individual businesses, stores, shops and kiosk, down to the street. This thing has eaten deep even into the unborn kids of this Country. What do we make of all these diverted funds? In as much as we have not gotten any tangible criminal who has been convicted, tried and charged. I must appreciate the work of EFCC and the fear of its capability, even though they selectively go for criminals in our land. We will all be fine, I know that. Just keep up your hard work and consistency, with as much sincerity as you can give in.

Nigerian Banker connives with fraudsters to steal over N20m from customers’ accounts . .

Fraudulent

A Igbo banker in Victoria Island, and University of Nigeria Nsukka Campus graduate Christian Amaechi, has been arrested for conniving with fraudsters to steal millions of naira from customers using a string of impersonators.

Amechi, until his arrest, was serving at the ATM customers service unit, at the bank’s head office in Victoria Island, He was arrested, last week, along with five other members of the syndicate.

Together, the gang had allegedly removed over N20m from accounts belonging to various customers. Those arrested include Oyozoje Joseph, 30; Nelson Matthew Eugari; Henry Omogbemi, 31; and Ene Mona Gabriel.

Luck ran against the banker after the police team arrested the leader of a gang of pickpockets, Akeem Apejoye, in Lagos. Akeem alleged that the gang’s interest was mainly the SIM cards of stolen phones. .

Narrating how his gang removed several millions of naira from victims account, Christian said all that was needed for the illegal transfer to succeed is the customers SIM card, stressing that any account holder who does online transaction has his or her Bank Verification Number (BVN) number stored on his or her phone.

“I grew up in Ajegunle and I was introduced into the business by my friends known as Ose boy and DJ. The moment any member of the gang lays his hand on stolen SIM cards, they would dial the USSD number to access the owner’s BVN. .

That is if the owner does online banking. Once this is done, they would send me the six last digits with which I can access the owner’s account to know how much is in the account. The gang can then transfer at least N200,000 per transaction into their own account.”

He also disclosed that, some times, the gang would do a welcome back of some of the SIM card. He said: “What happens in this case is that the original owner of the line would not be able to make or receive calls. .

All calls or text messages on such numbers can only be accessed by the person who did the welcome back. The gang members are staff of telecommunication providers. These set of people are the ones who do the welcome back.”

My Opinion.

Notice how the bank name was cleverly omitted? Well this is what these people want us to do in this corrupt country. Incomplete news and of omitted information. With its head office in Victoria Island, we all can guess the bank in question. Or do you need help with that?

Eight years after, Turai Yar’Adua’s multi-billion naira cancer centre converted to beans farm

National deceit

After being abandoned for eight years, the multi-billion naira International Cancer Centre, ICCA, an initiative of former Nigerian First Lady, Turai Yar’Adua, has been transformed into a cowpea farm.

The erstwhile first lady secured a partnership deal with a key organ of the International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, in 2009 and then raised billions of naira in cash and materials from public and private sector donors to establish the ICCA in Abuja.

In December, 2016, investigation by PREMIUM TIMES revealed that burglars stormed the centre strategically located along the Abuja airport expressway and carted away power cables worth millions of naira. It is not known which other equipment have been pilfered from the locked up buildings.

A recent visit by this newspaper to the centre revealed that the ICCA, which was overtaken by weeds last year, is still in state of abandonment and has now been transformed to a beans plantation.

At the sprawling centre built on 7.3 hectares of land donated by the Nigerian government, rotting equipment, including about 200 donated mini-buses, depict a sad story of waste.

Mrs. Yar’Adua had in July 2009, two years after her husband, the late President Umaru Yar’Adua, took office, flagged off the project with an elaborate fundraising event to mobilise N10 billion for the construction of the centre.

The exact amount raised from donors, including public and private officials, was not publicly disclosed.
Security men, who did not allow our reporter into the facility or agree to facilitate contact with any of the officials expressed dissatisfaction with the deteriorating state of the centre.

When quizzed, one of the security operatives said officials of the centre visit the facility occasionally.

“We are not permitted to speak with any journalist or allow them to gain entrance into the building. What you (PREMIUM TIMES) told us about the state of the centre is true. Since the incident that occurred last year nothing has changed”, he said.

“We are suffering here, no light. We’ve been living in total darkness every night till date and our officials told us that Mrs. Yar’Adua promised to rehabilitate the centre (but) nothing has been done.

”Nothing has changed, the only thing that has changed is the six mobile police officers, who were deployed to guard the centre”, he added.

Efforts by PREMIUM TIMES to speak with Mrs. Yar’Adua on the issues were unsuccessful as she is reportedly in London.

The Director-General of the Shehu Yar’Adua Centre in the Central Business District of Abuja, Jackie Farris, said the foundation is, ”neither directly nor indirectly involved with the centre.”

She agreed to forward inquiries on the matter to Mrs. Yar’Adua and her spokesperson.

However, after several weeks Mrs. Farris said she could not be of assistance.

“Apologies. I did look for her as promised but learned she is in London. Sorry, I cannot be more helpful. I do not have a contact for anyone associated with the Cancer Centre either,” she said.

“Try not to be too harsh? I’m sure there are explanations for why things turned out the way they have,” she added.
