Nigerian doctor and her husband allegedly 'trafficked' Nigerian woman to the UK, made her work 18-hour shifts for £20 a week

A Nigerian doctor and her husband have been accused of trafficking a Nigerian woman to the UK before making her work 18-hour shifts and beating her when she asked for higher wages.

Dr Ayodeji Adewakun, 44, and Abimbola Adewakun, 48, are alleged to have paid babysitter Iyabo Olatunji, just £20 a week for looking after their two young children at home in Erith, south east London.

Ms Olatunji, 37, told Southwark Crown Court on Monday, May 8th, that she was also made to work long arduous days cleaning their house before staying late and cooking the couple dinner. She claims that when she asked for higher wages, and was slapped by the couple.

The couple allegedly persuaded Iyambo Olatunji to leave her home in Nigeria to look after their two young children at their three-bedroom home in Erith, southeast London, in 2004. Ms Olatunji, who had worked as a secretary for the local government in Nigeria, was forced to work 18-hour shifts cleaning the house and to share a bed with the youngest child. She also worked for Mr Adewakun’s pastor father as a househelp in the 1990s.
Ms Olatunji, who did not have her own bank account, was originally promised a £450 monthly salary over a 15-month period, jurors heard.

She told the court Ayodeji, or ‘Aunty Ayo’, ‘said she would look after me’.
"She said I would be fine. She said she would pay me money, a salary. The salary would have been higher than the one I was earning in the local government."
The Kent-based doctor promised her new childminder £450 per month in a contract signed by the couple and Ms Olatunji which also set out a range of terms and conditions of her employment which began when she arrived in February 2004.

They included caring for couple’s two young children ‘at times agreed in advance’ during working hours ‘stipulated as Monday to Saturday’ six days per week between 7am and 5pm.
Ms Olatunji denied she was made aware of any duties expected of her outside of her babysitting role and added that she had never even had a bank account set up for her to receive her wages into.
‘I told Aunty Ayo ‘I do not have one’ but she just said ‘I have plans for you’,’ she added.

She said Ayodeji’s brother accompanied her to the British Embassy in Nigeria to get her passport and held onto it until they landed in the UK.

When she first arrived at the three-bedroom house she met the couple’s Hungarian au pair who showed her the children’s nursery, school and local park before leaving a week later with ‘a bad attitude’.
Jurors heard Dr Adewakun spotted Ms Olatunji chatting to the au pair and raged ‘Are you listening to her? She is not happy you are here because she is leaving.

"She is not a good au pair." he said.
The court heard Ms Olatunji, who came to the UK with just five Nigerian Naira in her pocket, was not even treated to a t-shirt she liked during a family holiday to Euro Disney.

On their return, she claimed she was made to get up at 6am to get the children fed and off to school before tidying the home during the day and preparing meals for the evening.

"I am not sleeping at 8pm or 9pm - it is midnight,"said Ms Olatunji.

She recalled that the doctor and her husband sometimes did not return home from work until well after 10pm.
"Sometimes she would speak nicely to me - 25% nice to me, 75% anger,’ Ms Olatunji said. "She did not pay me. Both of them did not pay me, they just gave me £20 on Friday"
She was even told a landline call to her parents back home was ‘too expensive’ and spent some of her wages on Africa Tel calling cards.

Ms Olatunji said she was slapped three times by the doctor when she asked for more money.

The first occasion, coinciding with her birthday, was documented in a diary she kept, which also detailed the lax payment schedule. Jurors heard the babysitter wrote:
"Aunty fight with me today.She slapped my face twice.. The day I will never forget in my life - the first time in history that somebody has slapped my face."
Ms Olatunji claimed she was assaulted again twice before she reported her situation to Mrs Adewakun’s mother.

Dr Adewakun and her husband Abimbola, both deny obtaining services by deception and trafficking a person into the UK for exploitation.

Mrs Adewakun further denies assaulting Ms Olatunji and two further counts of fraud and trafficking a person into the UK for exploitation in relation to a second victim.

The trial continues.

While speaking to newsmen, he said one the thugs who approached him at the airport told him that he was warned never to come to Benin after he disrespected their boss, a chieftain of APC.

Agbomhere who was attacked alongside a former governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Movement in Bayelsa State, Moses Siasia, who accompanied him to Edo State, accused the current Deputy Governor of Edo State, Phillip Shaibu of masterminding the attack.

According to reports, three suspected thugs have been arrested over Monday’s attack and are currently being investigated.

Ellen DeGeneres bans Caitlyn Jenner from her talk show amidst row

Ellen DeGeneres is not about to stand by quietly while Caitlyn takes jabs at her. The renowned talk show host has reportedly banned Caitlyn Jenner from her talk show after a series of public rows over gay marriage.

Ellen is believed to have made the drastic decision following their most recent feud after Jenner in her tell-all memoir, Secrets of my life, accused DeGeneres of alienating her from the LGBTQ community.

Jenner claims that DeGeneres twisted her comments about gay marriage to engineer a shocking TV moment back in 2015. On her book tour, Jenner continued to trash DeGeneres and insisted that she was "burned" by the experience after DeGeneres put her on the spot by asking her to explain her views on LGBTQ.

"Ellen does not want to ever have Caitlyn back on the show,” a source told Radar. “She could not believe that Caitlyn took time to write about her in the book!”A source close to Caitlyn Jenner told Radar online that Cait is not bothered by the ban and has no intention of ever returning on the show.
“That is fine with Cait, because she has no desire to go back on after what Ellen did to her last time! In fact, she said she thinks that Kris put Ellen up to it, because of the fact that they are really close friends and Caitlyn had recently just left Kris when it happened. Caitlyn really believes that Kris put Ellen up to the line of questioning that she went for in the interview. She was just defending herself against the whole situation in the book because she felt she never had the chance to," Jenner's pal said.

The 82 Chibok Girls and other stories By Reuben Abati

“E ku amojuba awon 82 Chibok girls, o”
“What is that supposed to mean in plain English? You better watch your tongue. It will be politically incorrect and suicidal to start making a joke out of something that serious.”
“Where is the joke?”

“In your tone. I know you when you want to start your mischief.”
“I am a born-again Christian”
“I know. Like Stephanie Otobo telling Apostle Suleiman that she is born-again after maligning the man’s reputation. Don’t just say anything until you have confessed your sins. Confess. Confess, now.”
“I am not a politician. I am neutral. And I won’t reach conclusions based on circumstantial evidence.”
“It’s me you are talking to. Try another mischief.”
“But I say, e ku amojuba”

“Thank you. Politics 101: anybody that says anything other than to commend the Federal Government for rescuing the 82 Chibok girls should be condemned. Don’t forget that the Red Cross is part of this, and UNICEF is also offering help. Everything should not be partisan.”
“I am not saying anything anti-government. As a father myself, whatever the game is, if there is any, whatever political marketing is involved, I actually believe that those young ladies need support, and this may well be their opportunity in life. They have been showcased. I may have my reservations.”
“You see? What reservations?”
“I am just surprised that the whole drama appears to be professionally stage-managed. The girls even looked as if some of them were wearing costumes, I mean aso ebi.”
“Only the enemies of progress will look for things like that.”
“The girls looked as if they were actresses in a script they did not understand.”
“But they are back. So? What are you actually complaining about? The rescue, or the management of the optics?”
“Some people are saying that by 2019, just before the elections, the last batch of the Chibok girls will emerge from wherever they are.”
“Obviously, some people are weaving a conspiracy theory. I think the next time government wants to swap the girls for terrorists they should just swap supporters of the Jonathan government for the Chibok girls. That will settle this matter once and for all.”
“Why Jonathan’s people? I think they should swap Nigerian Senators who have refused to pass the 2017 budget.”
“What? Saraki’s Senators? Whoever tries that, ajekun iya ni o je, ajekun iya ni o je….”
“You dey craze. People, and these are Nigerians, are saying they have a feeling the girls have become pawns in a grand political strategy and game.”
“Can you prove that?”
“I don’t need to prove anything. In politics and political science, there is something called game theory and it is real.”
“Billy Dudley. I remember what Professor Dudley said, but you can’t reduce everything to textbook thinking. Get real. We should join government to thank God.”
“Whatever it is, whatever the truth is, and whatever the post-truth is, I want the best for those girls. And it is not a job for government alone. Take the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) for example. When the girls were first abducted, CAN and the Western world did not allow us to rest. They packaged the Chibok girls’ abduction as an assault on Christianity. They maligned Moslems.”
“I remember that”
“We Christians often theatricalize our religion, posturing that we epitomize what Christ lived and died for. For me there is a metaphorical correlation between the situation of these girls, “dead” as it were for three years, resurrecting now, shortly after Easter. We love to take swipes at the other religion. Now that we have some of the girls back, what plans do the money-spinning, faith-based universities have for them?”
“How? This is not about religion.”
“These churches run educational institutions from crèche to the university. Go and look at the full list of the rescued Chibok girls. They are mostly Christians. Instead of blaming Moslems, can Covenant, Babcock, Redeemed, Salem, Benson Idahosa, Joseph Ayo Babalola, Caritas and similar institutions adopt these ladies, support government, and begin the process of healing the wounds of the past three years?”
“I am confused. I don’t really know where you stand. You talk this way. You talk that way. Can we talk about something else?”
“My stand is clear. What else, if I may ask?”
“Like #BAAD 2017. Banky W getting engaged to Adesua Etomi, and how the best way to get a wife in this digital age is to slide into DMs. Very soon, churches will start organizing seminars on the value of the DM on twitter as a tool for defeating the demon of being single. I am sure there are Bible passages that will illuminate that.”
“Congratulations to Banky W and Adesua, then. They may just have started a revolution in the marriage theatre.”
“Or we can talk about Davido and the baby shower with his Baby Mama in Atlanta.”
“How is that an important subject when we are talking about game theory and Nigerian politics?”
“It is a very hot subject among the Nigerian youth”
“Really? Okay, then, let us discuss it when Davido beats Tu Baba’s record, or when he finally decides to move from friend zone to husband zone.”
“Agba ya ni wo egbon yin ke. Wetin? Je ki awon boys je aye ori won. Okay let’s talk about the Demuren baby bump.”
“No. Can we go back and talk about Nigeria? How for example, Nigeria can produce its own Emmanuel Macron in 2019? And in case you don’t know, Macron is the 39-year old young man who has just won the Presidential election in France, the youngest since Napoleon.”
“We can do the same thing here. How old was Gowon when he became Head of State? It is nothing new. All those people who laid the foundation for modern Nigeria were all young men in their 20s and 30s. In recent times, we have also had young men becoming Speakers of Nigerian legislatures at different levels or even Governors.”
“And what happened? Did the young men perform? What happened to the foundation and the building?”
“The law does not allow anyone below 40 to aspire to become President of Nigeria, but some people have started a Not-Too-Young-To-Run-Movement. We should be optimistic.”
“When you look at the on-going game in the country, do you see the possibility of any age-based revolution in Nigerian politics?”
“Yes. Macron started a movement of his own and the entire country bought into it.”
“So, what are you waiting for? You too can start a movement here as an independent candidate and tell Nigerians to queue up behind you.”
“I am thinking about it, why not?”
“My friend, wake up! Macron is 39. He is married to a woman who is 64 years old, his mother’s age mate. You think Nigerians will accept that? He didn’t have to share money to be accepted. He has no known Godfather. Even his opponent, Marine Le Pen does not have a Godfather. Her own father actually gave a pass mark to Macron after their last debate when he said Macron sounded more serious and more assertive.”
“Those are Oyinbo things”
“Say that to those who are saying Macron has won in France. Tell them, they can also have a French Revolution in Nigeria. But tell them to note the cultural differences, and how politics is a game in one country and how it is about the people and their future in another country. When will politics ever be about the people in Nigeria?”
“We can do it.”
“Don’t just mouth slogans. This is how you people always get Nigeria into trouble. Tell me what you intend to do about the dinosaurs who are the game makers in Nigerian politics. Nobody made an issue out of Macron’s ethnicity, religion, or age. It was all about issues. In those countries that we like to use as reference points, democracy has become a science, a social science, but in Africa - democracy is witchcraft. The more you see, the less you understand.”
“What I know is that Nigeria has a Macron out there”
“And a sick Donald Trump out there too, who will get to power because of all the games we play in this country”
“Don’t get worked up. You know for me, the most beautiful thing about the French Presidential election is that after the battle was won and lost, Marine Le Pen conceded to Macron and she went to a club to dance. A few hours after losing, she was in a club singing Hip and Hop Karaoke: “I Love Rock N Roll” by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and she spinned around to YMCA by the Village People. She just lost an election. For her, France is more important. Her life does not depend on political office. When we get to that level, we can start comparing our democracy with others.”
“When people lose election in Nigeria, it is a kind of bereavement. Now that suicide is a popular response in Nigeria, don’t also be surprised if our politicians start committing suicide after elections.”
“I am an optimist. We will get there.”
“I am a pragmatist. In Nigeria, when something goes up, it never goes down. Take Uber taxi charges. Uber has tried to reduce its charges all over the world due to competition with its key rival, Taxify. It is only in Nigeria that Uber drivers have organized protests. They say they don’t want the 40% reduction in tariffs. They want Uber to reduce its own returns. That is Nigeria for you. The Buhari government promised to fight corruption, but Professor Tam David-West, a die-hard Buharist is now suddenly a whistle-blower. He is now lamenting that President Buhari is surrounded by corrupt persons. Aso Villa demons at work, certainly, I think.”
“God will intervene”
“Yes. God. We end up leaving everything to God and prayers...”

AIG Taiwo Lakanu: Friend, Officer and Gentleman
I am not a fan of police officers. Over the past 32 years, I have done enough character sketches, caricatures and acerbic commentaries about the Nigeria Police to fill a whole book. But in the process, I have also come in contact with and made friends with many police officers who have proven to be true professionals. Taiwo Lakanu, who has just been promoted from his post as Commissioner of Police in Imo State to Assistant Inspector General of Police in Abuja is one of such.
Lakanu is essentially an operations man. From DPO to anti-armed robbery squad, to IGP aide, to commissioner of police, and now AIG, he has managed over the years, to build a network of contacts at all levels of the Nigerian society. He is the archetypal police as your friend, he reaches out to the community, he has a forever listening ear and he is fiercely loyal to his bosses. When it comes to his job, he is extremely stubborn and unyielding. A lawyer and a trained officer, he does not joke with his job.
He once told me the story of how a certain notorious herbalist-armed robber taken into custody became a chief informant to the station, and who helped the Special Anti-Armed Robbery Squad in Lagos to nail many armed robbers. When the fellow suddenly died as he had himself predicted, Lakanu said he wept. The man had become an asset to the Nigerian state. When Lakanu told me other stories of face-to-face encounters with hoodlums during operations, I often wondered how he has managed to survive. Police work is tough work.
Lakanu’s elevation is certainly a reward for hardwork, diligence and professionalism. I congratulate him on his achievement. He has not served as Police PRO but he is probably the most influential police officer of his grade among Nigerian journalists.
I am not surprised that he recently excelled as CP, Imo State where he proved to be an asset to all and sundry by ridding the communities of established crime. Upon his departure, dances were organized to celebrate him.
The Governor named a street in his honour. He was also offered a plot of land which he was told he could choose as his retirement base in the future, in addition to a sum of N5 million as “fuel money.” He may have rejected the land and the fuel money, but in truth, it is not always that Nigerian police officers are so honoured. Oftentimes, they are chased away by the same people they are asked to protect. Lakanu’s example is instructive. The Akogun of Lagos, thank you for living true to your traditional title. Hearty congratulations.

'I rather quit politics entirely than join APC - ex Abia state governor, Theodor Orji says

Former Abia state governor now Senator representing Abia Central Senatorial District in the Senate, Theodor Orji, says he would rather quit politics entirely than join the ruling party, APC. He said this during a town hall meeting held at Umuahia North Local Government headquarters over the weekend.

Orji stated that despite the fact that many prominent politicians from APGA and PDP in the South East have defected ‎to APC, he has never for once contemplated revamping from PDP.

“At no time did I discuss or mention such move to any individual or group because it is not in the pipeline and will never be there. Why would I leave my party, the PDP?” he asked. Whatever that is happening in my party is part of the development process of our great country; we should not all be in one political party; That is not how to develop democracy. Abandoning the PDP or any other political party because of alleged crisis is most uncharitable, especially when majority of them have benefited hugely from it” he said.

Two engaged medical doctors found dead in their penthouse apartment

According to law enforcement officers, two medical doctors in Boston who were engaged to each other, were found dead in their penthouse apartment.

49 years old Richard Field and 38 years old Lina Bolanos were anesthesiologists at Boston-area practices, according to the couples' respective employers after their bodies were found on Friday.

Police arrested Bampumim Teixeira, after receiving 911 calls reporting a person with a gun on Dorchester Avenue in South Boston. Officers who confronted Teixeira in a dark hallway in the building believed he either pointed or fired a weapon at them and as a result discharged their own firearms.

After a "violent struggle," according to police, he was arrested and taken to the hospital. Teixeira was charged with two counts of murder. Teixeira will appear in court on June 8 for a probable cause hearing.

Usain Bolt doesn't know the difference between a groupie and a good woman

Legendary sprinter Usain Bolt doesn't know the difference between groupies and a good woman. He said this during an interview with Page Six, He said;

"I think I have gotten better over the years when it comes to women. But there is no way to tell the difference between a groupie and a good woman … All I can do is have a discussion, and it is all about talking to people. I have been around so many people, so over time I kind of figure them out.”
Bolt, who is in a serious relationship with girlfriend Kasi Bennett, has been linked to a few “groupies” but despite all the rumors, Kasi and Usain are still together. He recently told People magazine that they’re even thinking about starting a family.

“I have had a girlfriend for four years now and it’s going steadily, so we’re thinking about kids very soon,” he tells the magazine. “We’ll see how it goes, we’re taking our time.”

$15m Fraud: Courts Refuses Patience Jonathan’s Claim To $9.8m

Justice M.B. Idris of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, today rejected an application filed by a former First Lady, Patience Jonathan, seeking a declaration that she owns the sum of $9.8m domiciled in Skye Bank.

The former First Lady, through her lawyer, I.A. Adedipe, SAN, had filed an application by way of amended originating summons dated December 15, 2016, seeking a declaration that she is the owner of the money and that she is entitled to access the funds without hindrance.

Adedipe had also sought an order of the court discharging the freezing of the account.

However, the prosecution had filed a counter affidavit, challenging the competency of the amended originating summons of the applicant. At today's sitting, prosecution counsel, Idris Abdullahi Mohammed, urged the court to reject the application filed by the defence counsel.

"My Lord, the facts in this case are in dispute; and it is a known fact that whenever a fact is in dispute, the appropriate way of commencing this suit is by way of writ of summons, which the applicant has refused to comply with."

In his ruling, Justice Idris upheld the submission of the prosecution counsel that the suit ought not to have commenced by the way of originating summons, which the claimant had done. Consequently, the judge ordered parties to file their applications by way of writ of summons before the court.

The money is part of the sum of $15.5m the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had stumbled on in four bank accounts domiciled in Skye Bank Plc, while investigating a former Special Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan on Domestic Affairs, Waripamowei Dudafa. The names of the three companies are: Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited; Seagate Property Development and Investment Company Limited; Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited.
