“Chinko Ekun is set to go down in history with the video of Shayo; an anthem which he crafted specially for alcoholic beverage lovers.

In this clip, we see him team up with usual culprits Dremo and Falz, as they narrate their various funny ordeals under the influence of liquor with epic wordplay.

Chinko also employs the skillset of popular internet comedy sensation Twyse, giving the video a healthy dose of rib cracking qualities. As usual, no Falz featured video is complete without his ever so amusing drama!

You definitely want to hit play.”

Muslim man who attacked a 16-year-old boy he spotted cuddling his girlfriend in the street, jailed

The Muslim man, who branded a schoolgirl a ' whore' and attacked her 16-year-old boyfriend , slamming his head into a wall after he spotted the couple cuddling (read here), has been sentenced to a total of 28 months imprisonment on Monday, December 5th at Southwark Crown Court.

Michael Coe, a 35-year-old Muslim convert of Devenish Road, was found guilty on Wednesday, 24 Augustof actual bodily harm (ABH) of the boy and common assault of a 31-year-old man who witnessed and took photos of the attack. Coe was sentenced to two years for the ABH and four months for the assault to run consecutively.

On Friday, 15 April, Coe, who described himself as a "self-appointed enforcer" of how Muslims should behave, pulled up in a silver Ford Focus on Wilson Road, E6 when he saw the victim and the boy's 16-year-old girlfriend hugging at a bus stop. He told the boy to leave the girl alone, then got out of the car and asked if they were Muslim, after which he called the girl a "whore".

When the boy remonstrated with Coe for speaking to his girlfriend in this way, Coe grabbed the boy by the throat and smashed his head against a wall.

The boy passed out, falling to the floor, and Coe kicked him in the head while his girlfriend helplessly looked on. Coe momentarily got back into the car but seeing that a man in the street was taking photos on his mobile phone, he got back out and tried to wrench the phone from his hands.

Unsuccessful, Coe picked the man identified as a schoolteacher Boutho Siwela, up and threw him to the floor, before driving off in the car. Both victims were taken to hospital. The teenager suffered cuts to his head; the other victim escaped without serious injuries as he was wearing a crash helmet at the time of the attack.

Detectives from Newham Borough were able to trace the Ford Focus as the 31-year-old man had caught the registration plate on his mobile phone. They then used the man's photos of Coe to identify him as the perpetrator.

Officers from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) took the lead for the investigation as they arrested Coe for these offences at the same time they arrested him for malicious communications. Coe was charged in relation to all three offences but the charge of malicious communications was later discontinued. Officers from SO15 retained the investigation into the assaults.

When Coe was arrested on Saturday, 16 April he claimed that he had assaulted the boy because he believed the girl was in distress but at court the prosecution argued that the attack by Muslim-convert Coe had religious overtones. He made no mention of kicking the boy in the head or assaulting the second victim during his police interview.

Chief Superintendent Tony Nash, Newham Borough commander, said:

"Coe tried to save himself from prosecution by purporting to be some kind of hero, coming to the rescue of a girl he had in fact been abusive to. It was fortunate that both victims did not suffer serious physical injuries, although the mental and emotional impact on them, and the teenage girl who witnessed the attack, is difficult to gauge. I'm grateful to the second victim, who bravely took photos of the incident, at risk to himself. This evidence enabled us to quickly identify Coe. He also provided crucial witness testimony at the trial.The Muslim convert was radicalised in prison by al-Qaeda terrorist Dhiren Barot in 2007. He was known to be a member of the banned organisation al-Muhajiroun, which was founded by the convicted hate preacher Choudary.

Life in Prison! - Father jailed for leaving son to die in a hot car while sending sexually explicit messages to women

Justin Ross Harris (pictured) forgot his son, Cooper in his car, went into his office, sent sexually explicit messages to different woman and only realized when he had driven for a few minutes after leaving work.

Harris claims that he forgot to drop his son off at a daycare on June 18, 2014 and didn’t realise he had left the boy strapped into his car seat.

Prosecutors however argued that Harris wanted to be free of family responsibilities. An investigation revealed that he made Internet searches about life without children, how to survive prison and also watched videos of animals dying in cars in the sun. A police detective also revealed that Harris had texted sexually explicit messages to six women, one of them as young as 17, while his son suffocated in the car.
A jury three weeks ago found him guilty of charges including malice murder, cruelty to children and sexual exploitation of children – in reference to the teenage woman he texted. In addition to the life term for the murder charge, Cobb County Superior Court Judge Mary Staley Clark added 32 years for the other crimes.

Harris, who was wearing an orange prison jumpsuit with his hands and ankles shackled, declined to speak at the sentencing. He also did not show any emotion as the sentence was read out. His attorney, Maddox Kilgore, said he planned to file a motion for a new trial.

Bryan Tanaka opens up about his feelings for Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey’s new man, Bryan Tanaka, who has been one of her dancers since 2005, has publicly declared his love for the Singer. He revealed this during an interview with E! News, at the New York City premiere party for the reality show, Mariah’s World.

"I've always had a thing for Mariah. I love her so much," Bryan gushed.He revealed that he met the mother of two when he was still a novice and they hit it off immediately. He believes that their reconnection so many years after that first meeting was the work of fate. In his words;

“Something connected with us back in the day, and there was just a mutual admiration. She saw something in me that I actually didn't recognize at first, from that it was over. It was set in history that we were gonna be connected some way, somehow

Photos: Nigerian drug lord sentenced to 27 years in Cambodia loses appeal today

A Cambodian Court of Appeals on Tuesday, December 6th, upheld the sentence of a Nigerian drug trafficking convict. Precious Chineme Nwoko (pictured in court today) was sentenced to 27 years imprisonment in Cambodia in 2014...

The court upheld his prison term, ruling that it was appropriate and in accordance with Cambodian law...

Khieu Vann, the lawyer for Taylor, told reporters that the appeals court’s decision was an injustice and that he would consult with his client to see if she wished to appeal to the Supreme Court. Asked today by journalists why he used dating scams to turn women into drug mules, Nwoko became enraged, according to a report by Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald "Are you stupid? Get out of here.

You think you can come here and ask questions while I am jail," he shouted at Luke McMahon, a Melbourne writer who has revealed Taylor’s plight in an exclusive story for Fairfax Media. Nwoko, a ringleader in a heroin smuggling cartel in Cambodia was arrested for handing a backpack containing 2.2 kilos (4.8 pounds) of heroin to two women, 41-year-old Australian Yoshe Ann Taylor and 19 year old French Charlene Savarino, for onward transportation to an unidentified man in Australia.

Both women were however arrested in 2013 at Phnom Penh International Airport. Judge Kor Vandy at Phnom Penh Municipal Court who presided over their case said Nwoko and the two women were guilty of ‘cross-border smuggling of illegal drugs and thereafter sentenced Nwoko’s 19year old girlfriend Savarino to 25 years in jail, while 41 year old Taylor was handed 23 years. They all denied the drug belonged to them.

$30bn loan: Pres. Buhari needs to borrow to pay contractors, carry out projects- Odigie-Oyegun

APC National chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, has lent his support to plans by the Federal government to borrow $30 billion from foreign financial institutions. Recall that the proposed plan has been opposed by members of the Senate and some Notable Nigerians including the Emir of Kano and former Central Bank Governor, Muhammad Sanusi II.

However speaking with newsmen at a function in Lagos yesterday, Odigie-Oyegun said the ailing economy can only be revamped by infusing money into it and such money can either be gotten through borrow. According to the APC chief, President Buhari needs to borrow money to pay contractors who have not been paid for as much as 4-10 years, revive the economy.

“If you read the newspapers, you hear the President being advised to pump money into the economy. So the question is where is the money coming from? Simple! It has to come from somewhere including borrowing, both internal and external. To get this country going again, you have to pay contractors. Some contractors have not been paid for 4, 5, 6, 10 years. So long as the borrowing is done not to pay salaries which the President Buhari administration will not do, but invested to create opportunities, solve our problems of power and things like that. To allow people to have money to consume, to buy goods, to pay for services so that factories can produce. So it is that cycle. We must kick-start the economy and to kick-start it will need money, lots of money”he said He also spoke on the anti-corruption campaign of President Buhari “That is a task that must be accomplished because it is at the bottom of all the ills of this country. When you are corrupt, you are immoral, when you are corrupt, you don’t have ethics, when you are corrupt, you lose the distinction between right and wrong. When you are corrupt, even life does not mean anything to you. So, we must get it under serious control for this nation to have hope of making any progress.” he said.

Graphic Photos: 11 yr old Sierra Leone girl suffering from 'strange' breast condition undergoes surgery

In November, photos of an 11 year old Sierra Leone girl, Mamie Sam, went viral due to the nature of what was best described as a 'strange breast condition'.

Maime, who resides with her grandparents, cried out for help to the government and other humanitarian organizations to come to her aid.
Speaking to a reporter, she explained that some time last year she went on a fishing expedition together with her grand mother and other women in the town. After the exercise she started experiencing her breast becoming large.

"While taking her bath together with the women in the stream, one of them spoke about the increase in her breast, saying it was becoming abnormal and not a good thing for her. During the night, her breast itched and kept increasing as she tried scratching. The following morning, when she went to school, her classmates made fun of her and she stopped going to school ever since then."
Although her parents reportedly sought medical attention and consulted several herbalists within their community, there was no improvement.

However, a team of specialized doctors from Netherlands have now carried out the surgery needed to reduce her breasts, See the graphic photos from during the surgery, below...

Photo: 3 internet fraudsters posed as clients to swindle property dealer out of N3.8m in Lagos

Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad of Lagos State Police Command have arrested three people for being members of an internet fraud gang that swindled a property dealer in Lagos State the sum of N3.8 million while posing as a client...

The suspects, Olisa Oyegbuka, 28; Ifeannacho Kingsley, 27 and Ujumwa Aniemena, 33, were all arrested on Wednesday, 30th November, 2016 in Akwa, Anambra State.

The suspects are part of the internet fraudsters that specialised in hacking into email addresses and using them to send messages seeking transfer of funds in tranches to different accounts.

Unlike the present gang, the other gang, comprising of four young men were arrested in Onitsha for hacking into the email account of the CEO of a popular lotto company based in Lagos, and sought the transfer of five million naira cumulatively into four separate accounts.

According to the Lagos based estate agent, name withheld,

"I received an email (withheld) giving payment instructions. The owner of the email address is my client. It gave payment instructions to transfer funds in my custody to an account belonging to one Emmanuel Ajinubi with First bank Account No. 3046974892. The first transfer of N800,000 was on 24th October, 2016. On 27th October, 2016, there was another instruction to transfer N530,000 to same account.
"On 1st November, 2016, I transferred N720, 000 into Ifenancho Kingsley, First Bank, Account 3050290672 and further instruction the following day of N850,000 to same account.
"The total amount transferred into the two accounts was N3, 820,000. Just after the payment on 2nd November, my client called me that was when we realised that the payment instructions did not emanate from him, rather, it was made by fraudsters,” he explained.One of the suspect whose account was used during the transfer, Ifeanacho Kingsley, admitted that two separate transactions of N720,000 and N850,000 were transferred into his account, adding that, a family friend, Chinedu Emmanuel, had requested for his account details and thereafter took his ATM card and PIN to withdraw the money.

"The first alert of N720,000, I got on my phone, but within a twinkle of an eye, the money was wiped from my account. The following day, I got another alert of N850, 000. Almost instantly, there were lots of POS transactions bearing “Grand POS” Asaba. Since then, I have not seen him and I don’t know the kind of job he does. As I talk to you, my ATM card is still with him."Another suspect, Olisa Oyegbuka told investigators that his friend, Egbuka, who was arrested by RRS few weeks earlier, was the one who used his account to funnel N800, 000 into a Fidelity Bank Account belonging to one Tamino.

RRS investigators added that efforts are still on-going to arrest other members of the gangs who they believed are directly involved in the hacking into of some corporate and individuals’ email for fraudulent purposes.

Responding to the incident, the Police PPRO, SP Dolapo Badmos, warned criminals using other states as a base to perpetuate crime in Lagos that the Command would get them from their hideouts. The three suspects have been transferred to SCID for further investigation.

Kaduna state govt releases White paper on Army-Shi'ite members clash, describes group members as insurgents

The Kaduna State Government today released the White paper on the report of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into the clash between members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria otherwise known as Shi'ites and the Nigerian Army in Zaria in December 2015.

The Judicial Commission of Inquiry which examined, among other issues, the immediate and remote causes of the clashes between the Nigerian Army and the outlawed religious group, submitted its report in July 2016. Following the receipt of the report, the Kaduna State Government made the report public within 10 days, and set up a committee of senior public servants to prepare a draft White Paper.

The white paper sets out the views and decisions of the Government on all the recommendations that have been made to it by the Judicial Commission of Inquiry. All recommendations that are within the purview of the Kaduna State Government can be accepted, noted or rejected. Those pertaining to institutions or tiers of government not under the direct control of the state government are noted and referred to the appropriate institution for consideration and decision.

After deliberations on the draft White Paper by the Kaduna State Security Council, it was subjected to further review by the Kaduna State Executive Council which amended and approved the White Paper.

Regarding the clashes in the Gyallesu area of Zaria where the Nigerian Army mounted a cordon and search operation, the White Paper observed that many civilians were evacuated from Gyallesu, but that IMN members rejected the opportunity to vacate the area.

The White Paper also acknowledged that the Nigerian Army abided by its Rules of Engagement and further observed that:

the Judicial Commission of Inquiry failed to take into account the years during which the activities of the IMN in Gyallesu had threatened peace and security; for all intent and purpose, the IMN is an insurgent group and ought to be treated as such;

the sheer numbers of IMN members congregating in Zaria from across the country that night, with many bearing arms, was such that the Nigerian Army was in no position to accurately determine how armed and organised they were and had to be concerned on what their intention for Zaria was.“With regards to the findings of the Commission on the conduct of the Nigerian Army, the State Government noted the recommendation that members of the Nigerian Army that may have been involved in the unlawful killing of 347 citizens should be brought to trial before a Court of competent jurisdiction.

“The Kaduna State Government is assured that the Federal Government will not condone unlawful killing of any citizen and that this conduct will be further investigated and any culprits identified will first be subjected to court martial by the federal authorities, followed by civil prosecution by the state government.”

“The Kaduna State Government accepted the following recommendations, among others:

1. The IMN is an unregistered organisation that cannot be sued. Therefore, all IMN members and its leadership are jointly and severally liable for all violations of the law in the last 30 years, and are therefore responsible for the clashes and its consequences;

2. Members of the IMN owe absolute loyalty to Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky. He therefore bears responsibility for all the acts of lawlessness committed by the organisation and should therefore be held responsible, fully investigated and prosecuted;

3. The evidence before the Commission, from the testimonies and memoranda submitted to it by the various interest groups and stakeholders, clearly shows that IMN has become a law unto itself; disregarding the authority of the Nigerian State as vested in the police and other security agencies which many a times lead to several confrontations such as the one of 12th to 14th December, 2015 between it and the Nigerian Army;

4. All incidents of violence and aggression by the members of the IMN against individuals, groups or communities, which have resulted in grievous bodily harm, destruction of properties and deaths, should be fully investigated and culprits brought to book. Where appropriate, compensations should be paid;

5. The State Government should investigate and repossess all illegally acquired public lands from IMN and utilize same for Public Interest;

6. Without any hesitance, government must demonstrate the necessary political will to proscribe the existing IMN as an unregistered and unlawful association;

7. Mechanism should be put in place for the proposed Bill on Religious Preaching to be passed into law as quickly as possible and implemented.”

The Judicial Commission of Inquiry said that “the failure, reluctance or sheer inability of the State and its security agencies to maintain law and order or hold the IMN members to account for recurring and widespread acts of lawlessness, disobedience to constituted authorities is an important factor leading to the clash of December 12th to 14th 2015.”

The inquiry report further asserted that “the IMN has been steadfast and deliberate in refusing to recognise the legitimacy, authority and the Constitution of the Nigerian State. They have operated outside the laws of the State and the Funtua Declaration is their flagship enunciation of the ideology of confrontation with the Nigerian State, its legal system and its security agencies. The result has been a long tradition of IMN refusal to respect, observe and comply with the laws of the country.” The Commission of Inquiry also highlighted the IMN’s allegiance to a foreign power and its pattern of conduct which suggests that the IMN is an insurgent group.

Two groups in the Shia tradition are active in Kaduna State, with their adherents freely observing their faith. Both groups, Al-Thaqalayn and Rasul A’azam, gave testimony to the Judicial Commission of Inquiry, affirming that the Shia faith “can be observed and ought to be protected within the boundaries set and permitted by the Nigerian constitution and other laws”. The allegiance of these Shia groups to the Nigerian state, their conformity with the laws of the land and their non-involvement in acts of blocking roads, occupying schools and other acts that infringe on the rights of other citizens stand in marked contrast to the IMN’s utter disregard for laws and the rights of citizens.

The Kaduna State Government has already acted on some of the recommendations, and will now take steps to implement the others. Those recommendations that are solely within the powers and competence of the Federal Government have been appropriately referred for further necessary action.

Government has already acted to declare the IMN an unlawful society and is prosecuting the IMN members alleged to be involved in the killing of Corporal Dan Kaduna Yakubu. Government has also ensured that property destroyed in the clashes have been valued to ascertain reasonable compensation to circumstantial victims.

The Attorney-General of Kaduna State will be liaising with the police and other law enforcement agencies to ensure that there is accountability for the murders and other crimes committed by leaders and members of the IMN in the last three decades.

The White Paper rejected any suggestion that the burial of the victims did not conform to the law. “Government observes that its officials complied with the Burial Law of the State. Section 7 sub-section 1 of the Burial Law Cap 20 Laws of Kaduna State Government 1991 requires the burial of persons who die in this type of circumstances within 24hrs. The Interpretation section of Rule 115 Geneva Convention also states that in circumstances of this nature, dead bodies could be buried in a mass grave.”

The White Paper also rejected the Judicial Commission of Inquiry’s view on actions taken to clear structures at the scenes of the clashes, affirming that:

The debris at the Hussainiyya Baqiyatillah and at the residence of Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky were removed on the grounds of Public Health and safety. All the IMN buildings that were demolished were constructed without statutory title and building permit as required by the Land Use Act and Section 26 of the KASUPDA Law No.12 of 2015.

The said Laws empower the Agency (KASUPDA) under Sections 46 and 48(2) to demolish any building which did not comply with the legal provisions. All the structures so removed violated either the provisions of the Land Use Act or the KASUPDA Law or both.

The sad events of 12-14 December 2015 led to needless and avoidable casualties. They are the product of a legacy of lawlessness, and must never be allowed to recur. Decades of neglect by governments and the security agencies of their obligations for vigorous law enforcement and the protection of constitutional rights have bred a dangerous sense of impunity and disregard for citizens and lawful authority.

The Kaduna State Government wishes to reiterate that it will not foreclose engagement with any of its citizens. But it will do its duty to enforce the law and will not compromise the prerogative of the state to defend the rights and liberties of all its citizens.

The right to freedom of worship is a cherished constitutional right. But the constitution did not bestow on anyone or group the right to curtail the rights of others or to apply the right to faith in a way that diminishes or inconveniences others.

Any insistence that religion or religious rites can only be practised as acts of public nuisance and in wanton violation of the rights of others will not be allowed. Every group and individual must abide by the law. There is no opt-out from this civilised duty.
