Man, 45, allegedly rapes 75-yr-old woman in Ekiti

ADO EKITI — A 45-year-old farmer, Lawrence Adedapo, is now in Police custody for allegedly forcibly having carnal knowledge of a 75-year-old woman, Grace Asaolu, at Ogbese Camp, Ise-Ekiti in Ise-Orun Local Government Area of Ekiti State.

Adedapo was said to have invited the septuagenarian to his house on November 7 this year under the pretex that he brought some plantain from his farm for sale.

The accused was said to have taken advantage of the old woman’s fragile nature, overpowering her before having carnal knowledge of her.

According to the victim, “Lawrence Adedapo is my neighbour. He invited me to come and collect plantain but instead he pushed me on his children’s bed and forcefully had carnal knowledge of me. I later rushed to the police station to report the matter.”

Upon interrogation, the suspect confirmed that he had carnal knowledge of the woman but denied forcing her, claiming that she was his mistress.

He said: “I knew her long time ago. I knew her as a widow from Moba Local Government Area of the state. We have known each other for the past 35 years and I have been dating her for long.

“The last time I had sex with her was in April during Easter before meeting her again on November 7. That was the second time we met this year. I did not force her into it and I had her consent before doing it”.

Asked why she reported the matter to the police, Adedapo said: “I promised to give her N2,000 which she asked for before we did it. But after the sex I was able to give her N1,000 only. That could be the reason why she alleged that I raped her. I later found out that she was bleeding as a result of the sex.

“I did not even ejaculate because I used my children’s room, so I had to rush.”

However, the police image maker in the state, Mr. Victor Babayemi, ASP, insisted that the investigation carried out by the police revealed that the old woman was actually raped by the suspect.

He said: “In the course of investigation, facts emerged that the suspect knew the victim to be of old age, 75, and in menopause.

“She could not have been bleeding without tampering with her organ. Medical report shows that there was a violent sexual assault on her; she was also said to be distressed with her genital smeared with fresh blood.

“It shows that he invited the woman with criminal intent to have intercourse with her.

Asari-Dokubo arrested in Benin Republic

Asari Dokubo
The leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force, NDPVF, Alhaji Mujahid Asari-Dokubo, was Tuesday arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic.

A statement by his lawyer, Festus Keyamo, said Dokubo was picked up by the police between 1p.m. and 2p.m. around the Lubeleyi Roundabout, and taken to an unknown destination.

The wealthy former militant reportedly opened a private university in the Benin Republic, the King Amachree African University that is preparing to start degree-awarding programmes in 2014.

Keyamo said: “We want to emphasise that Alhaji Asari-Dokubo carries on legitimate business and has been living partly in Benin Republic for many years now.

“In fact, he owns houses, schools and an academy in that country. All these places have been searched and nothing incriminating was found.”

He suggested that Dokubo’s arrest and detention may be a ploy by “certain forces in Nigeria in unholy alliance with the Beninoise government” to keep his client away as 2015 approaches.

“We call on the Nigerian government to immediately intervene and ensure that no harm befalls him and to use all diplomatic means to secure his immediate release and safe return to Nigeria,” he added.

Dokubo has in recent times vowed that unless Mr. President Jonathan retains the presidency in 2015, Nigeria would break up.  Source from www.vanguardngr.com

“I feel so sad when they call me a Yoruba actress” – Ayo Mogaji


In a recent interview with a national newspaper, bilingual actress, Ayo Mogaji talked about her career and other sundry issues.

She said “I am an actress not a Yoruba actress. If you call yourself an actress, you should be able to interpret any role being given to you in as much as you understand the language. I will use the word Nollywood actress for me rather than being referred to as a Yoruba actress, because I do act both in the English and Yoruba industry. So, I feel so sad when you say Ayo Mogaji is a Yoruba actress”

See excerpts below:

What have you been up to lately?
My acting is still moving on. I am still the same old Ayo Mogaji. I am still working and not yet tired. After my movie “Jombo” in 2006, I have not produced any other movie. I have stopped producing because the market is not encouraging, so I am just a working actress. If you can pay for my job, I work with you. I just returned back to the country. I am moving in and out of Nigeria by virtue of marriage. My husband is British and it seems like everyone knows about that. He’s Dr. Ayodele Oduleye, a psychotherapist and British by birth. He lives there. I just came back from USA where I went to anchor a show.

You went off the scene at a time, why?
There was never a time I went off the scene. The only issue was I decided to limit some of my activities, because I can’t get lesser pay or do anything substandard. This is the only career I have got so if you are under paying me or not being reasonable with your offer, I move out of your job. I didn’t go anywhere; I was still in the country, I was still working. As we are talking right now, this year they have released several such as “Igba’bajo,” “Towotomo,” “Moberu,” Arinzo 1&2. Just at the tail end of last year, they released “Moberu.” While I was in the US, they released a couple of movies like “Mama Insurance.” So there has never been one time I rested on my oars. I also featured in soap operas like “Tarima.” I also used to do “Nowhere to be Found.” What I’m saying is that even when I am not in the country, you see me on your TV screen every now and then.

You’ve been around for many years. Do you have any plan to retire at all?
I love acting and this is the only thing I have done most of my life. I have been an actor even before home video came. People paid to see me perform on stage. We started on stage when the commercial viability of the acting business was not as it is now in Nigeria. Therefore, we had to do quite a lot of things to sustain ourselves. We were into radio; we were also into TV play. TV was very popular back then. I was on “Village Headmaster,” “Anter Theatre,” “Koko Close” and quite a number of other TV programmes. My major TV plays then were in “Koko Close,” “Village Headmaster” and “Den Set.” There were a lot of other series, which I acted in but I can’t remember them all anymore. We were not getting paid so much, but there was job satisfaction. We were quite happy with what we were doing. At that time, if you were a regular TV actor you were very lucky because some money would come out of it at the end of the month. So, without being immodest, I have been a household name before the advent of home video. So this is what I love. There is no age limit to acting.

You said marriage makes you travel more often now?
I am a house wife where I am coming from, and this is where my career is. Like I said, I don’t live in the US; I just try to shuffle both. If anyone needs me to do a job for them they pay for my ticket and all that comes with the job.

You play comical roles more often nowadays, why?
I play according to the character role I am given. There is a director that would tell you this is how he wants his script played like I did in “Igba’Bajo.” That was how they wanted their character to be played out. I want to believe that they specifically picked me for that character because they know I can give them what they want. My character in “Towotomo” and “Arinzo” was not comical though. There are several movies in which I didn’t act comical roles. I play my part according to what you want me to do.

Considering your status in the industry, how do you feel when you are being asked to act the role of a house maid?
I don’t have to play the lead role. If I act as a maid, that does not bother me, as long as I act my role and get my professional fee. I just believe most of them know that Ayo Mogaji would interpret the role given to her.

Most actors fight for the lead role. What do you have to say about that?
Well, I don’t know about them, I can only speak for myself.

Jonathan falls ill in London

ABUJA (AFP) – Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan received unplanned medical treatment in London on Thursday after he “became indisposed” and was forced to miss a scheduled meeting, his spokesman said.

“In the course of his ongoing visit to London for a meeting of Nigeria’s Honorary International Investors’ Council, President Goodluck Jonathan became indisposed and could not be present at the opening of the meeting today,” said Reuben Abati.

“President Jonathan has since been examined by competent medical practitioners. He has been advised to rest for a few days.”

Abati added in an emailed statement that the president’s condition was “nothing serious and that the medical attention he has sought is only precautionary”.

Jonathan, who turned 56 on Wednesday, is not publicly known to be suffering from any serious medical conditions.

He assumed the presidency in 2010 following the death of his predecessor Musa Yar’Adua.

Yar’Adua’s protracted illness, details of which were kept from the public, sparked a months-long political crisis in Africa’s most populous country.

London police rescue three women held captive for 30 years

LONDON (AFP) – British police on Thursday rescued three women from a London home where they were believed held as slaves for at least 30 years by a couple who were arrested.

Officials identified the victims as a 69-year-old Malaysian woman, a 57-year-old Irish woman and a 30-year-old Briton.

Police described the women as “highly traumatised”.

Detectives arrested a 67-year-old man and a 67-year-old woman at their home in south London.

Police swooped after being contacted last month by the Freedom Charity, which received a call from a woman stating she had been held against her will in a house in London for more than 30 years, Scotland Yard said.

Police said the woman had contacted the charity — which helps young people to understand forced marriage and honour-based violence — after seeing a TV documentary featuring the group’s work.

Detective Inspector Kevin Hyland, from Scotland Yard’s Human Trafficking Unit, said: “A television documentary on forced marriages relating to the work of Freedom Charity was the catalyst that prompted one of the victims to call for help and led to their rescue.”

Police inquiries established the location of the house and with the help of “sensitive negotiations” conducted by the charity, the three women were rescued.

“We applaud the actions of Freedom Charity and are working in partnership to support these victims who appear to have been held for over 30 years,” Hyland said.

“We have launched an extensive investigation to establish the facts surrounding these very serious allegations.”

Earlier this year, three women who were imprisoned in a house in Cleveland, Ohio, for more than a decade were freed.

Gunmen kidnap industrialist, Yinka Oba, kill driver in Ilesa

OSOGBO — An Ilesha based industrialist, Dr Olayinka Obaleye popularly known as Yinka Oba, was on Tuesday night kidnapped by yet-to-be identified gunmen at the front of her company, killing her driver on the spot.

Man, 40 Grows Breasts After Stealing Cattle


The man identified as Acry Chinhivi Shayamano, as belived by villagers is been punished for stealing by a cattle owner.
50-year-old Hamilton Magaisa said, "We all know that Acry grew "oranges" because of his thieving. People who steal are punished in so many ways. I have no sympathy for him."

Shayamano did admit that he was a thief but denied ever stealing a cattle. "Who told you that I have grown "oranges". Mine are not that bad. I never stole anyone's cattle.
"I steal but not cattle. I stole some DVDs and I was arrested and ordered to pay a fine," he said.

He said his grandmother lost two cows in February and that was the time he noticed his "oranges" growing. He said people just made a connection, which was not the case.
Acry said his "oranges" were not painful but were still growing. He said the "oranges" could be a side effect of the ARVs he was taking. He has been taking them for the past three years.

But some villagers are convinced that Acry is paying for his crime.

“I never signed a contract with Donjazzy or Mavin” Wande Coal explains why he took Baby Face


Wande Coal has finally disclosed why he released the “baby face track” without getting any proper permission from Don Jazzy who claims to own the song.
When asked during an appearance on Vox Africa UK, about his reaction to Mavin’s press release terminating his contract with them, he said

“I mean everybody knows that I’m black Diamond. I’ve been with Don Jazzy for a while now so I just decided to do my own thing. There is no beef. I mean the song baby face was supposed to be on my album, but since we fell out, it was just there. It was void. I didn’t have no contract. I was just there helping. I was working on my album and its 95% there.”

Since there was no contract, no wonder Don jazzy couldn’t sue or use lawyers against Wande and that’s probably why he resorted to twitter.

We say good luck to both parties.

“I didn’t notice anyone was running after my car” Pasuma releases statement on alleged murder case

PASUMA
Reacting to the report, Pasuma released a press statement a few hours ago, narrating his side of the story.

The statement reads thus:
“On October 24th I had a show somewhere around idimu and as usual there were quite a lot of people there. After my performance I made for my car after settling the area boys with a large sum of money. Definitely, I had to zoom off because I didn’t want them to mob me. I left the venue and drove straight to my house. Later that night, I heard someone was killed at the show. I was surprised because people don’t fight at my shows. It was later explained to me that the young man was killed by policemen. I tried to get details of the incident and that was when I gathered that one of the boys hung on to my car before I drove off.

He was said to have fallen off and started running after my car for reasons I don’t know. I didn’t even notice anyone was running after my car. Simultaneously, the policemen were driving fast behind me to get more money from me and in the process the boy was knocked down by their vehicle. When the policemen caught up with me, I gave them Money and they turned back. As at that time I was not even aware something had happened and I drove off. Later that night, I was informed that a boy was killed by the policemen and my manager Afolabi Oyekoya has been trying to get in touch with the deceased family. If those that reported the incident, did actually visit the police station or hospital the boy was taken to, they would have found out the truth. The question is ,Did my car hit the boy? Did my car have any contact with the boy ? Was I even aware of anything ?

The policemen were said to have taken the boy to the hospital or their station and had communicated with the family. It was reported that the policemen were part of my convoy but the truth is they were never part of my convoy. I didn’t go to the show with any security except my bodyguards. I feel comfortable around area boys or whatsoever you choose to call them, I have no reason to move around with policemen. I didn’t hit anyone with my car, neither did any of my convoy . Where is the story coming from. I didn’t want to make any press statement but have been forced to because it is obvious some bloggers are trying to make a mess of my name. Do we now live in a country where people believe they can just write something about you and get away with it. Hmmm !

If I was truly involved in a murder case I would have been invited to the police station for questioning . Have I been asked to write a report at the police station? Have I been arrested ? We are talking about someone’s life here? My management AO21 Media have been making efforts to reach the family of the deceased not because we were involved in his death but because he was a fan of Pasuma wonder

“I would wait for the right man even if it takes a 100 years” – Karen Igho


Media personality Karen Igho says she’s ready to wait a 100 years for her Mr Right!
In a recent interview with NET, the one time Big Brother Africa winner, Karen, said “You know I can go on twitter and say I’m lonely, or pick up my phone and make calls and men will arrive, but I don’t want that. I want a connection. I want to be in love, I don’t want to fall for someone because he is a star or because of what he has. I want to fall in love with you because of who you are. Some men come and try to entice me with materials things. You don’t have to be rich to win my world. I would wait for the right man even if it takes a hundred years, after all they say God’s time is the best.”

We really hope she doesn’t wait that long….

Oluchi Orlandi insults Journalists at show’s premiere



Less than three weeks after Nigerian international model, Oluchi Onweagba-Orlandi launched a series of attacks on Twitter and called her fellow Africans animals, she, on Friday 8 November, re-enacted her saucy side as she insulted a group of journalists who were at the premiere of her new show, Africa’s Next Top Model.

Oluchi, who was the chief hostess at the weekend event held at Pravada Lounge on Victoria Island, Lagos, created an ugly drama as she snubbed the media reps who had asked to be treated well after being made to stand while others were on their seats during the delayed press conference.

It was gathered that the whole drama started after the model, who came far late into the event, caused the organisers to move the earlier scheduled media briefing into the noisy main hall of the night club.
And of course, the journalists were not comfortable with the arrangement considering the boisterous crowd and noise.
After about three questions and her impolite responses, the newsmen stopped asking questions.

Oluchi sensed their coldness and then asked if there were further questions, to which one of the journalists expressed disgust over the humiliation they had been subjected to.

Rather than apologise, Oluchi angrily muttered:
“I am only here to party and not to be answering questions.”

And she walked away leaving the angry journalists in the middle of the club.

When the organizers went to confer with her, she remained adamant.

Even when the whole scenario was reported to the publisher of a fashion and lifestyle magazine, and our correspondent was invited to iron out the matter, Oluchi threw caution to the winds when she told the reporter, “Don’t touch me please,” when she was about to be stopped from walking away for the second time.

“Oluchi should be world class…she should be able to control herself in public no matter how upset she is. It’s called anger management,” said a concerned guest who observed the drama at the event.
It was learnt that Oluchi has a record of bad temperament and is said to be hostile to journalists.

That was what manifested when she threw caution to the winds with her recent outburst on Twitter. Her series on Twitter read:

“I am disgusted. DISGUSTED by human behaviour…Africans be like “no funds no meetings”… MONEY is not the root of evil. “Greedy Humans” are the root of evil… Hopefully I won’t throw up soon. Bunch of inconsiderate animals!!!!…They know price tag of everything and the VALUE of nothing!!!…Incompetent idiots. Ugly souls. Monsters in human forms!…They won’t let me enjoy my beauty sleep!”

And she got a lot of bashing for her coarse tweets.
One Akindele wrote then:

“This girl is just a fool…so because you marry Oyibo now, folks back home are now ‘Africans’? Shame, a Nigerian should be propagating this sort of ignorance.Can’t she just say ‘These guys’ or even be specific? But she would rather tag all Africans, feeding into stereotypes of racists around her. Nonsense, is Africa one country? How many Africans have she met? Village girl made into Face of Africa.”

Pope Francis corruption fury: Tie them to a rock and throw them in the sea


Impassioned sermon condemned corruption from those who donated to the church but stole from the state
Pope Francis delivered an impassioned sermon yesterday, during which he quoted a passage from the bible that said some sinners deserve to be tied to a rock and cast into the sea.

The Argentinian religious leader said Christians who donated money to the church but stole from the state were leading a "double life" and were sinners who should be punished.

Quoting from the Gospel of St Luke in the New Testament, he said: “Jesus says 'It would be better for him if a millstone were put around his neck and he be thrown into the sea',” because "where there is deceit, the Spirit of God cannot be".

Without directly mentioning corruption within the Catholic Church, in his sermon he described those involved in corrupt practices as “whitewashed tombs”, explaining that “they appear beautiful from the outside, but inside they are full of dead bones and putrefaction.” He said: "A life based on corruption is varnished putrefaction.”

His sermon came during his daily morning Mass inside Casa Santa Marta, the guest house he has lived in since being elected pontiff in March.

On Friday, he also condemned corruption, asserting parents who earned through bribes or corrupt practices had "lost their dignity", and fed their children "unclean bread".

He said: "Some of you might say: 'But this man only did what everyone does!'. But no, not everyone! Some company administrators, some public administrators, some government administrators… perhaps there are not even very many. But it’s that attitude of the shortcut, of the most comfortable way to earn a living.

"These poor people who have lost their dignity in the habit of bribes take with them not the money they have earned, but only their lack of dignity!"

He compared receiving bribes as "like a drug" as people become "dependent" on the habit of bribes.

The Pope has made clear his intentions to tackle corruption within the Vatican and held a meeting with the Church's highest rankingwhistleblower in October, after telling the Church in May that it “must go forward... with a heart of poverty, not a heart of investment or of a businessman” reminding it that "St Peter did not
