DSS Attempt To Arrest Apostle Suleman In Ekiti, Fayose Rescues Him To Govt. House (Photo+Video)

Unconfirmed reports have it that last night, a team of DSS operatives stormed a hotel in Ekiti in an attempt to arrest the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleiman.

It took the intervention of Governor Ayo Fayose and his security team to rescue the self styled apostle and bring him to the Ekiti State Government House.

It is believed that Apostle Suleman’s attempted arrest may not be unconnected with his recent “inflammatory” statement, asking Christians to pick up arms and kill Fulanis.

Police Arrest Children Of Dead Teachers For Protesting In Akwa Ibom

The police in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, yesterday detained three children of dead primary school teachers who protested non-payment of gratuities and pensions of their parents by the state government.

Ten others were injured as policemen at the Government House gate used force to break the protest.

Among those detained at the time of filing this report were the leaders of the group: Kenneth Enobong, Benjamin Benson and Utibe Akpan.

The police used tear gas and gun buts to scare the protesters.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) D. R. Abibo allegedly ordered the use of Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) to drive the protesters away from the Government House gate. Akibo was said to have ordered his officers and men order to beat up the protesters.

“Beat up these people. If you cannot beat them, let me beat them by my hand,” he was quoted as saying in the full glare of reports.

The police chief allegedly watched as some of the protesters were bundled into a vehicle.

Akibo said: “I told them to leave the road and stand by the side so that they can listen to me. but they disobeyed me as the Commissioner of Police. Who are they that they can’t listen or obey a simple instruction?”

The ACP represents the police at the commission of enquiry on the collapsed Reigners Bible Church International in Uyo.

“We are handling this kind of case at the commission and I was trying to help them in their case. But they refused to obey me,” he said before leaving the scene in his Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). It was learnt that a police Inspector ordered the other policemen to drive the other protesters away – as far as Ibom Plaza or beyond.

Reporters covering the protest, including the Chairman of Correspondents’ Chapel, Denis Udoma, were attacked with tear gas and ordered to leave the scene with the protesters. The protesters, under the aegis of Next-of-Kin-of Late Primary School Teachers (NKLPST) in Akwa Ibom State, said they were forced into the peaceful agitation following government’s alleged insensitivity to their plight.

The group’s spokesman Pastor Aniekan Thompson said they resorted to the protest when negotiations with the government failed.

According to him, the affected teachers served the government since 1999, lived and died while waiting for their entitlements.

Thompson said several appeals were made to the government and other officials, including the Head of Service (HoS), Mrs. Ekerebong Akpan, to no avail.

He said: “After numerous protests, a committee on pensions, headed by the Leader of Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Sir Udo Kirian Akpan, invited us for a meeting and we met on August 29 and September 19, last year, and agreed ‘…that since government cannot pay all the backlog of entitlements at once’, it will start paying in batches, from the September allocation. They said we should not protest again, that it was embarrassing to government.”

The spokesman said government’s failure to settle the issues led to the death of many members and the educational pursuit of their children.

Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) State Chairman Etim Ukpong said he advised Governor Udom Emmanuel to use the N14.5 billion Paris Club refunds to settle such cases.

But the governor, two weeks ago, took the matter to the House of Assembly, asking the lawmakers to include the Paris Club cash in the proposed budget of N365.201 billion.

Police Arrest Another Human Trafficker With 16 Children In Jos

The Plateau State Police Command has said it intercepted a 27-year-old woman for allegedly being in possession of 16 children at Gada Biyu Motor Park in Jos.

Police spokesman, ASP Terna Tyopev, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday that the woman was arrested on Tuesday night.

According to him, the woman, identified as Rifkatu Bello, was conveying the children from Bauchi to Anambra.

“Our men from the Kabong Outstation, while on patrol, intercepted a 27-year-old Rifkatu Bello with 16 minors trying to board a vehicle at the Gada Biyu Motor Park.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that she was taking the children from Bauchi to Anambra.

“We have decided to arrest and detain her so as to investigate further and ascertain the purpose for which she is taking the children for,” he said.

“The children were between the ages 13 years and 15 years, adding that they were 15 males and one female,” Tyopev disclosed.

He said that the suspect was presently being held at the Police “A’’ Division for further investigation.

The spokesman, who said that the woman’s action was suspected to be human trafficking, warned residents of Plateau to be vigilant and report any suspected movement in and around their vicinity.

Recall that just yesterday, 135 boys were rescued from human traffickers in Jos.

Police Arrest Youths For Snatching Kidnapper From Them

Police in Lagos have arrested three youths in the Agbowa area of the state for allegedly snatching a suspected kidnapper from police operatives.

ADELOVE learnt that the fleeing suspected kidnapper had led a team of policemen attached to the anti-kidnapping squad of the command to the community sometime in December to conduct a search on his apartment when some youths attacked the team.

The youths were said to have removed a pair of handcuffs on the suspect’s hands, freed him and subsequently set ablaze a police patrol van that brought the suspect and the team to the area.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, on Thursday said three policemen were seriously injured in the attack.

He, however, said the command would not want to disclose the identities of the suspects in order not to thwart efforts at arresting other fleeing hoodlums.

Owoseni said, “Some criminal elements under the guise of community youths attacked the police team, cut the handcuffs used to chain the suspect and librated him. Three of the operatives were injured while the police vehicle used by the team was burnt. A policeman is still in a hospital.

“Three of those who perpetrated the act have been arrested, but we don’t want to reveal their identities now in order not to jeopardize our investigation.”

Five suspected murderers of a youth killed sometime in September 2016, on Lagos Island, have also been arrested.

A video, showing a victim being hacked to death by some hoodlums had gone viral, prompting the police to launch a manhunt for the suspects.

The CP said, “Five of the people identified from the video have been apprehended. We are carrying out further investigation with a view to making sure that all the criminals involved in that murder are eventually apprehended. Like the case of Agbowa, we don’t want to parade them now so that we can use them to get other suspects at large.

“Between January 1 and 12, the command has been able to apprehend six suspected armed robbers. Three different types of sophisticated weapons were recovered from them. Four cult members were arrested and eight vehicles were recovered. We shall not relent to ensure that we get rid of criminal elements that disturb the smooth running of economic and social activities in Lagos.”

Kemi Olunloyo slams Governor Ambode for arresting Pretty Mike

I have lost all respect for Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos state and urge every Lagosian NEVER TO VOTE FOR HIM IN 2019.

These politicians are so manipulative that they feel they can control we the masses and censor us. There is a freedom of speech and freedom of expression clause in the Nigerian constitution just like the US First amendment that I’m used to.

@prettymikeclubuno displayed his freedom of expression by leashing his girls to his public events and appearances. The ladies NEVER complained. Did the governor have to order his arrest??

He did NOT dehumanize them. If there is such a law against dehumanization of citizens in the state, how come citizens are doused with petrol and killed after stealing in public?

Gov Ambode, how come movie maker Seun Egbegbe was dehumanized at Computer Village after allegedly stealing iphones? How come u allow vigilante justice in your state and have never addressed the police absence issue allowing citizens to freely dehumanize others.

A club owner uses a foreign style seen on catwalks, MTV and award shows and u immediately order his arrest and ask him to sign a fake anticonstitutional document.

IT IS SIMPLY UNFAIR, ABUSE OF POWER AND AGAINST THE LAW. I leashed my three children in the United States as they could dart into traffic and one kid once went missing for 4 hours in a mall as a toddler.

With the rate of ritualistic gbomogbomo kid-nappers in Lagos and other states, parents will start leashing their young kids in crowded markets an old thing abroad.

You forcefully want Lagos to be modern but still selective. Are u gonna start arresting parents too and seizing the kids? Did ur government disclose the investigation to the public?

We journalists deserve to know what Mike’s ladies had to say. Mr Governor u acted like an illiterate. Ignorance does not EXCUSE STUPIDITY.

Governor Ambode arrests Pretty Mike for putting girls on dog chains (SEE PHOTO)

Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, yesterday ordered the arrest and questioning of club owner, Mike Eze-Nwalie Nwogu popularly known as ‘Pretty Mike’, for putting a leash on two girls and parading them around like dogs.

 

Mike was invited to the Governor’s office but the governor didn’t see him personally. He directed his security team to question him. But because there’s no law against what Pretty Mike did, meaning he didn’t commit any crime, he was only cautioned and asked never to do it again…

A source at the questioning told Newsmen that Pretty Mike tried to justify his action by claiming it was merely for entertainment and a woman empowerment kind of move and was not intended to degrade women but promised never to do it again!

Read Mike’s undertaken below..

“I, Mike Eze Nwalie, A.K.A Pretty Mike of 21A Magodo GRA, Luma Street, do hereby undertake to stop whatever act of putting girls on a leash or any other degrading treatment to ladies and guys. I am aware that such act offends the law of the State of Lagos and if I repeat it again, there will be legal act towards me. I undertake to issue a letter of apology to the public effective from tomorrow on all my social media platforms.”his undertaking reads

The State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Adeniji Kazeem who confirmed his arrest, said the state government frowns at all acts that are anti-social and will not hesitate to act when such is displayed.

FRSC Lists Items All Motorists Must Possess To Avoid Arrest And Booking

The Federal Road Safety Corps has issued a warning to motorists that fail to have fire extinguisher, caution sign, light signs among other secondary offences will be arrested booked.

FRSC said it only suspended the booking of some these offences during end of special operations to allow free flow of traffic and must not be misunderstood as legalisation of the offences.

Head, Media Relations and Strategy, FRSC, Mr Bisi Kazeem, in a statement on Monday in Abuja said the attention of the Corps has been drawn to the insinuations  being made by some members of the public consequent upon its recent directives on booking of certain traffic offences, including fire extinguishers, light signs violation and caution sign.

He explained that the suspension was temporarily done in the light of the observations by the operations department of the FRSC national headquarters to the effect that these offences were secondary offences, which should not take precedence over the primary offences especially during the operations zero when the operational focus was on ensuring free flow of traffic and avoidance of anything that could undermine it.

He added that the directive was in no way meant to permanently stop the FRSC patrol teams from enforcing laws on non possession of fire extinguishers, light and caution signs on motorists that violate them as provided for in the FRSC booking sheet.

In a circular issued on Monday by the FRSC to further clarify the Corps’ stand on the directives, the Deputy Corps Marshal in charge of Operations, Ojeme Ewhrudjakpor, stated that the suspension of booking of fire extinguisher (FEV), Light Sign Violation (LSV) and Caution Sign (VSC) was for one month of operation Zero (December 16, 2016 to January 16, 2017) when the focus was on free flow of traffic.

“The suspension was therefore part of the activities and directives to commands of the FRSC to ensure non-impediment to the free flow of traffic with the anticipated high vehicular movements,” the circular stated.

“For the avoidance of doubt, these offences are secondary offences that would be booked alongside primary infractions,” it added.

Deputy Corps Marshal Ojeme further stated that the suspension of the booking of the offences will be lifted at the termination of the ongoing operation zero on January 15, 2017 as directed by the Corps Marshal who is the grand commander of the operation.

It would be recalled that Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi had earlier given clarification on the directives when he urged Nigerians not to misinterpret the content of the earlier circular that was leaked to the press a few days ago and widely circulated on social media.

The earlier circular signed by Deputy Corps Marshal, Ojeme Ewhrudjakpor, on behalf of the Corps Marshal, directed commands of the FRSC across the country to avoid booking drivers for the offences of fire extinguisher, Light signs Violation and Caution Signs, which some motorists enthusiastically welcomed as a relief and applauded the FRSC for the measure.

Police Arrest RCCG Pastor For Burying Murdered Boy

The FCT Police Command has arrested a cleric, Pastor Timothy Adigun, of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Shere Koro, Bwari Area Council, Federal Capital Territory, FCT, for getting involved in the burial of a murdered boy.

Koro it is alleged, assisted a couple, Mr. and Mrs. Olaoye to bury the deceased, Ayomide Samuel that died in their home.

The FCT Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Manzah Anjuguri, told newsmen on Sunday that investigators had arrested Adigun for his involvement in the illegal burial of Samuel.

He confirmed that the couple had reportedly fled with the body of the primary four pupil, who died at their residence in the Zone B area of the community on Christmas Day.

Anjuguri said, “The primary four pupil gave up the ghost after he was believed to have been hit on the head with an object by the wife on Christmas Day.

“It was gathered that the couple had earlier taken the corpse of the boy to a clinic, but the workers at the clinic refused to admit the body when they saw blood all over the vehicle.

“They reportedly asked them to bring a police report before they would admit the body.

“The police, following a tip-off, embarked on a manhunt for the couple for fleeing with Samuel’s corpse after officials had directed them to report the incident at the Bwari Divisional Police Station.

“Adigun was arrested for assisting the wanted couple to bury the deceased in an unmarked grave in Shere Koro at night.”

According to the report, Olaoye then approached the Chief of Shere Koro community to purchase a piece of land for the burial of the boy, but the chief refused, so he contacted Pastor Adigun, one Kayode and two police officers who are members of the church to assist with the burial.

“But following rigorous investigation by the police,” the PPRO continued, “All the people that participated in the internment of the deceased were identified, leading to the arrest and detention of the cleric for allegedly leading the burial team.

“Efforts are ongoing to apprehend the Olaoyes, who are the prime suspects in the homicide case.

“We have a suspect in custody in respect of the case; he assisted the couple to bury the deceased.

“The police are on the trail of the prime suspects, we are working hard to get them,” the PPRO added.

Police arrest 16 people over Kim Kardashian West robbery

It’s still a developing story, but the international media is reporting that French authorities have arrested Sixteen people in connection with the robbery of Kim Kardashian in Paris almost 3 months ago.

The reality TV star lost ten million dollars worth of jewellery in the October heist, and has since largely stayed out of the public spotlight. The incident, during which Ms Kardashian, 36, was bound, gagged and held at gunpoint, reportedly left her “badly shaken”.

The thieves who disguised as police officers, fled from the scene on foot and on bicycles. Days after, a gemstone, presumably dropped during the getaway was found outside the Paris apartment and DNA traces were found on it .

“One of the DNA samples matched an individual known to police for robbery and criminal offences,” police said. They kept him under surveillance, along with those he came into contact. After three months of investigations, they were arrested during early morning raids in the Paris region, Normandy and the French Riviera

Reckless Motorist Evading Arrest Crushes Girl In Osogbo

There was mild drama when a motorist, with a car marked Lagos EC 310 SMK, on Saturday, in Osogbo, capital of Osun State, who tried to escape arrest by traffic wardens, rammed into the new Orisunbare Market at MDS area in the town and crushed a 16-year-old girl.

 

 

The condition of the girl was uncertain at press time as she had gone into coma after the incident, men of the Osun State Ambulance Service, who rescued her rushed her to The Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, where she was purportedly rejected.

 

ADELOVE gathered that she was subsequently taken to the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital (OAUTHC),  in Ile-Ife.

 

An eyewitness informed our correspondent that the driver, who ran away to avoid being mobbed also hit another car with registration number Lagos LND 186 BK from behind, which somersaulted.

The driver of the vehicle was said to be trying to escape from some policemen, after contravening the law at Ola-Iya junction by refusing to stop when the traffic light was on red.

A commercial motorcycle operator, who was at the scene of the incident said “The driver lost control, while trying to evade arrest, as the policemen chased him. He was on top speed because two policemen that were inside a Korope (mini commercial bus) chasing him.”

“That was why he hit another car, knocked down a girl and rammed into a shop in the market. The policemen that were chasing the car; one male and one female, disappeared immediately from the scene of the accident”.

However, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mrs Folasade Odoro in absolved the policemen at Ola-Iya junction of being the cause of the accident, saying they could not have chased the car because there was no vehicle attached to them, just she assured that the incident would be investigated.
