24-year-old American woman and Australian boyfriend murdered during a road trip in Canada

A manhunt is underway in Canada after a 24-year-old American woman and her Australian boyfriend were found dead earlier this week along a remote highway in British Columbia.

The bodies of Chynna Noelle Deese, 24, and Lucas Robertson Fowler, 23, were found just before 7:20 a.m. Monday on Alaska Highway 97 near Liard Hot Springs, a tourist attraction, Royal Canadian Mounted Police said. A blue Chevrolet van the couple was believed to have been traveling in was found at the scene.

The couple had just begun a road trip in Canada when they were murdered, Deese's brother told the Charlotte Observer. He said the couple's van may have broken down or overheated before they were killed. “Something happened on that road, some sort of conflict," he said.

Mark Jones, New South Wales Police Assistant Commissioner in Australia, said at a news conference on Saturday that it appears the couple may have been shot. Fowler's father is an active member of the police force in New South Wales.

At the moment, police do not have any suspects and said they do not know if Deese and Fowler were targeted or if it "was a crime of opportunity," the department said in a press release. Investigators are asking anyone who was in the area of Liard Hot Springs between July 14 at 4 p.m. to July 15 at 8 a.m. to contact police.

Davido Dragged To Court Over alleged N4, 000,000 (Four Million Naira) Fraud

Osun State born Nigerian hip pop singer David Adedeji Adeleke aka DAVIDO has been dragged before Igbosere Magistrate Court 2 Lagos State over an alleged fraud of N4, 000,000.00 (Four Million Naira).

The matter which came up for mentioning on the 23rd of May, 2019 as No 16 on the case list at Magistrate Court 2 Igbosere. Listed as Defendants in the suit marked MCL/702/19 are: David Adedeji Adeleke (Davido) – his Personal Assistant: Busari Idris Temitiope (Alias Aloma) and; Davido Music Worldwide Limited music label.

When the matter was called, none of the Defendants, including Davido was in Court, neither were they represented by their lawyers. Counsel to the Claimant Alabh George Turnah, (MON) informed the Court that the Defendants according to the bailiff of the Court, refused to accept service of the originating processes and pleaded the Court for an order for substituted service, which the Court granted.

Investigation revealed that Davido and his Personal Assistant are been sued for fraudulently obtaining the sum of N4, 000,000.00 only from an American based Nigerian born upcoming artist Andre- Tejiri Ochuko Ibhihwiori In the label of Always on Cash Records. Court papers revealed that Davido and his management collected the money as fee to feature in a musical collabo with artist Tjay sometime in January, 2019 but have since then failed to either make himself available for the music collabo or refund the money.

It is not clear how Davido and his handlers will deal with this matter, whether to go into full litigation or seek out of Court settlement with the Claimant who is already asking for 15% interest on the principal sum of N4,000,000.00 from the date of payment to any date that the sum is finally liquidated. This may turn out another Innoson and GTB episode should the talented singer and his team miss-handle the minor.

It is also suggested in certain quarters that this matter of fraud is capable of tainting the image of the singer and affect his credibility in the industry if not properly handled. Feelers from amongst industry players also suggests that Davido may be on his own in this matter as a number of his colleagues and associates who learnt of the Court case today and spoke to our correspondence on condition of anonymity expressed shock and sadness that Davido could engage in such petty fraud against an upcoming artist. Efforts to get to Davido and his management were unsuccessful as calls put through to their mobile phones rang out endlessly without been answered.

The case was however adjourned to the ”23rd of august 2019” for report of service and commencement of trial.

'Obasanjo has been obsessed with a National conference since 2005 without any benefit to the nation - Ex-Zamfara Governor, Abdulaziz Yari

Former Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari has faulted ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo’s call for a new National Conference to address the nation’s security challenges.

He said Obasanjo has been obsessed with conferences since 2005 without any benefit to the nation. He said it was on record that the massacre of innocent citizens in Zaki Biam in Benue state and Odi in Bayelsa State was during the tenure of Obasanjo. He urged all political leaders to eschew bitterness and support security agencies to restore law and order.

He said security challenges, particularly terrorism, is not peculiar to Nigeria. He called for an end to blame games on the challenges confronting the nation. He said it was wrong to geo-politicize internal security problem and blame it on a particular section of the country, or an ethnic group. He accused some elements from the Southwest and the Southeast in particular, of making political capital out of the current challenges at the detriment of the overall commonwealth of the country.

Yari, who was the immediate past chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum(NGF), said terrorism is one issue that has dominated the world scene for more than a decade. The ex-governor made his views known in a statement in Abuja through his Media Aide, Ibrahim Dosara. He faulted the stigmatization of Fulani as criminals. He said: “In his letter, Obasanjo called for national conference.

The former leader has been obsessed with conferences since the one he organized in 2005 to perpetuate himself in power through third term failed woefully. “President Goodluck Jonathan also organized a conference purportedly to advance his ambition.Tax payers funds and quality time was wasted on the conferences but with nothing to show for it. Neither of the leaders implemented the reports of the conferences they organized.

“It is high time for all political leaders to eschew bitterness and avoid using our fellow citizens as guinea pigs in our ambitious political laboratories. Our security agencies should be supported and allow to perform their duties of maintenance of law and order without fear or favour, and without infecting ethic and sectional or religious venoms into their modus operandi.”

Court rejects Atiku’s returning officer’s request to amend statement

The Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) has rejected the request by the National returning Officer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the last presidential election, Osita Chidoka to amend his written statement on oath.

Chidoka, who mounted the witness box today as the petitioners’ fourth and star witness for the day, was asked by the petitioners’ lawyer, Chris Uche (SAN) to identify and adopt his written statement, as was the case with other earlier witnesses.

Unlike the case with other witnesses before him, Chidoka sought to amend some portions of his written deposition (statement on oath) before he will adopt as his statement in the case before the court. While Chidoka went about identifying the part of his statement he wanted to amend, but which the court rejected on the grounds that, having signed as his, he could no longer amend.

Defend yourselves against ethnic militia groups in a manner that nobody would try such again - Miyetti Allah to herdsmen


Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, the body uniting Fulani herdsmen in the country has told its members to defend itself against ethnic militia groups in a manner that nobody would try such again, following warnings that came after recent killings witnessed in various parts of the country.

Speaking to Punch just few days after President Muhammadu Buhari asked Fulani herdsmen to ignore calls by northern elders to return to the north if they feel threatened in the south, the National Secretary of the group, Saleh Alhassan, warned that governors in the southern part of the country would be held responsible if any of their members was attacked.

He said, “We are Nigerians and we have a history. Anybody that thinks he can wake up and take on the Fulani pastoralist is making a grievous mistake; we are well prepared to defend our fundamental human rights of movement in this country.

“They (herdsmen) are Nigerians, so they are entitled to stay where they are. They should remain where they are and defend themselves against ethnic militia and assert their citizenship in this country.

“The only thing we would say is that we will hold all the governors of those states responsible for their safety and security, but if any ethnic militia, by any name, attacks our members, they should defend themselves in a manner that nobody would try such again.

“We have been saying it that people behind insecurity are not herders; bandits are behind these killings, and if the government is saying foreigners have infiltrated the herders, have they been arrested and what is their nationality? Anybody that is trying to destabilise this country should be dealt with.”

On calls by some northern groups that they should vacate the southern part of the country, Alhassan said;

“Those so-called northern youths called coalition of northern groups should note that if because of their action any herder is killed, we will first look for them before we go after our enemies.

“We are Nigerians and we are not going anywhere. Our attachment to the land is opportunistic; we don’t farm the land. So, if anybody is thinking that because he has cultivated the land in a particular place for long and he has rights there more than us, then we would ask where is the grazing area that the colonial masters created for us?

“Politicians can play their politics but they should leave our people out of it because it is the desperate politicians that are causing this confusion and they are looking for anything to hang on to, but we are watching them critically.

“If you threaten the herders, they react; they cannot be used for any political game because we have our way of defending ourselves. We hate injustice and we fight it. Anybody that thinks we can be squeezed is making a mistake.”

He added that grazing reserves that were carved out before the country’s independence, should be developed to serve their purpose, and also end persistent clashes between herders and their host communities.

“When we begin to discuss the Nigeria question, we would ask where the grazing reserves are because we know them and we have the records of where they are,” he added.

I didn’t believe it when my cousin Chioma told me she was dating Davido – Peruzzi

Peruzzi recounted how hard it was for him to believe that his distant cousin Chioma was dating Davido, as he talked about how his relationship with the DMW boss began.

According to the Peruzzi, he first got news of Chioma dating Davido after his mother's burial which was also when he noticed that Davido was always supporting his songs and brand on his social media platform.

He said, “After my mother’s burial; I was going home and someone sent me a message on Twitter, commending my song. The person asked if I remembered her. After she explained who she was, I remembered her. She told me Davido sent my song to her. I didn’t believe it. She further told me that they were dating and she is like my distant cousin, so I didn’t even see it coming.

“I felt like how can she be dating Davido and I wouldn’t know since. She was able to convince me after she sent me some pictures; she told me he was going to be around the next day. She invited me to his welcome party and I went there around 2 am at Club 57.

“Once Davido entered with his entourage, I was scared. He was facing me, but I didn’t know what to do. I moved to see him carefully. He looked at me and called my name. I was happy and I held him. He told me he loved my songs and that I should come to his house. That was the best night of my life. I sent Chioma a text; that I was with him.

“I couldn’t sleep that night because I was too excited. She (Chioma) is my mother’s cousin’s daughter. But she is my cousin; that is how we refer to each other. I don’t have a proper contract with Davido; he is my guy so I am not worried about that. Some people have lived with him for years without any contract.”

On how he felt after he was insulted for wearing Davido’s clothes, Peruzzi told Saturday Beats;

“How would you see something you like and you can’t tell your male friend that you like it? I told him I liked an outfit and he gave it to me. I have come to realise that no matter what I do, people would talk. I don’t let it get to me.”

He also talked about selling his car to buy some drugs for his ailing mother before she died, and completing his degree in medicine and surgery;

“When we realised my mother was diagnosed with cancer; I had to put my car on auction immediately. I wanted to quickly send money to people to help me get the drugs she needed. I could only get the drugs from India but they still didn’t work. I still see myself going back to complete my degree in medicine and surgery but I don’t see myself sitting in the hospital.”

If Bayelsa has three senators as Kano, then the context of one Nigeria is fair – Buhari

President Buhari while speaking when members of the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo Dynamic Support Group visited him at the Presidential Villa, maintained that the 1999 Constitution was fair to all parts of the country.

He backed his claim with proposition of the constitution, which held that each state must have a minister representing it in the cabinet. Buhari also stated that if Bayelsa, a small state with only eight local governments would have three senators in the National Assembly just like a big state like Kano with 44 local governments, then the context of one Nigeria is fair.

“The Constitution facilitates one thing; that there must be a member of the (Federal) Executive Council from each state of the federation.

“Why I praise the authors of our constitution is that Bayelsa with eight local governments has three senators and Kano with 44 (local governments) has three senators. So, you can’t be fairer than that in the context of one Nigeria.

“Please, try and understand that I appreciate you, you are doing a thankless job; nobody is paying you. You use your resources and time to come together and discuss national issues. I pray God will help us to keep this country strong economically and morally" Buhari said.

Governor Ihedioha accuses Rochas Okorocha of 'massive looting' in 8 years of government

Governor Ihedioha on Thursday accused his predecessor, Rochas Okorocha of “massive looting" and leaving Imo state with over N100 billion debt through corruption and mindless misappropriation.

The Imo State Governor in his address to Imo stakeholders, alleged that his newly constituted government recently received a N30 billion worth of Garnishee Orders from contractors handling fraudulently awarded contracts by Okorocha’s government.

Lamenting over the unsustainable debt his predecessor’s alleged eight years of misrule plunged the state into, Governor Ihedioha said;

“Our interim findings show a consistent pattern of massive looting and stripping of public assets, dismantling and carting away of public property such as electric poles, vehicles, trucks, office equipment and furniture etc.

“There were last-minute illegal sales of government property at giveaway prices and unlawful allocation of land including backdating of Certificates of Occupancy.

“I must inform you in this regard that, so far we have received over 30 billion Naira worth of Garnishee Orders arising from several ill-conceived and fraudulent contractual agreements deliberately consummated by the past administration, to destroy the future of the State and its teeming population by fettering the State in a humongous debt trap.”

Amaju Pinnick reacts to removal as CAF Vice President, reveals why he was removed

Amaju Pinnick and the Nigerian Football Federation, have reacted to his removal as the first Vice President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) on Thursday.

Pinnick in his reaction to the announcement of his removal, thanked the African football body for an opportunity to serve and also congratulated the newly appointed Vice Presidents.

“My commitment to the game is perpetual while my support for my colleagues in the Executive Committee remains steadfast.

“I congratulate Omari, Lekjaa and Danny on the assumption of their new roles as 1st, 2nd and 3rd Vice CAF Presidents respectively,” Pinnick said.

The NFF on its own part disclosed that the removal of Pinnick as CAF's Vice President, was in line with Article 22 (4) of the CAF Statutes. The statement from Ademola Olajire, NFF's Director of Communications reads;

“In line with Article 22 (4) of the CAF Statutes, every two years when elections are held at the CAF Congress (as took place today), the CAF Executive Committee on the proposal of the CAF President, elects a 1st, 2nd and 3rd Vice President, respectively from among its members.

“Significantly, the renewal of Amaju Pinnick’s tenure was not proposed by the CAF President because of fundamental differences on focus and direction.

“Pinnick accepted the decision of the President as it aligned with his own view having considered matters surrounding the administration of African Football which have dovetailed into the Nigerian Football space.

“He will, however, remain a bonafide member of the CAF Executive Committee to continue with his mandate as such.”

Police bust international cyber fraud gang in India, arrest Nigerian national

A Nigerian national was arrested from DLF phase III of Gurugram in Haryana by a cyber cell team of inspector general of police (IG), Agra range, on Tuesday, July 16, on charges of duping an Agra-based official of the food processing department of Rs 32 lakh.

According to police, the accused, Andrew Daniel, identified himself to the victim as Dr Edyon, process manager of a US-based pharmaceuticals company that manufactures medicines for animals and supplies steroids to owners of horse riding clubs.

The accused lured the victim to become a business partner and invest money into buying fake medicines from 'fake companies' by promising huge profits.

“The accused used to send text messages to people's phone numbers, offering partnership in steroid export business and promising huge profits. Once a victim falls in their net, the gang members would pose as representatives of the US firm and win confidence of the victim before asking him to buy a sample of 'fake steroid' from 'fake' Indian pharmaceutical companies for export. After testing the sample, the representatives would promise to offer a much higher price for the steroid to keep the victim interested in the deal.

Later, they would ask the victim to buy the 'steroid' in large quantities from the so-called companies.

Thinking that the deal would bring huge profits, their victim would jump into the trap. Once the victim buys the fake steroid by paying huge sums of money, the gang members would vanish. They would charge Rs 6 lakh for 1 litre of steroid,” said Vishal Sharma, sub-inspector of IG cyber cell.

Daniel came to India on a student visa in 2011. Later he came into contact with a cyber gang. After expiry of his student visa in 2015, Daniel moved to NCR to carry out his nefarious activities.

“We arrested Daniel in presence of his girlfriend Peggy Morrison on Tuesday and recovered laptops and mobile phones which contains data of their victims. The members of the gang are spread across several Indian states such as Maharashtra (Mumbai), Rajasthan (Pali), Gurugram (Haryana), Delhi, etc. They have also opened several bank accounts on forged papers and operate ‘ghost’ pharmaceutical companies to dupe their victims. On an average, the gang would extract at least Rs 20 lakh from each victim and would distribute the booty among themselves, with 40% going to Daniel, 20% to Indian associates involved and the rest 40% to a Mumbai-based African national,” said inspector Shailesh Kumar Singh, who heads the IG cyber cell.''

However, some sources said the Mumbai-based gang member is believed to be one Steve, a national of Ghana, who was arrested by Ahmedabad police recently in a similar case of cyber fraud.

Speaking to TOI, Awadh Narayan, the officer of the food processing department who was duped in August 2018 of Rs 32 lakh by the cyber gang, said,

“I have to mortgage my house and am currently paying Rs 32,000 per month as EMI to return the Rs 30 lakh loan that I took from bank and colleagues to buy six litres of steroid from a Mumbai-based pharmaceutical company. I deposited the amount in some bank accounts as asked by Dr Edyon, alias Andrew Daniel, but never received anything from the pharmaceutical firm. Later, Edyon’s phone number too became unreachable.”

"I had first received an SMS in 2018 in which the gang offered me a lucrative deal if I joined the business of exporting steroid. The fraudsters also promised me 50% commission from the deal," added Narayan.

51-year-old school bursar arrested in Abuja for drugging, raping and impregnating 15-year-old student

Operatives of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) have arrested a 51-year-old bursar of Government secondary School Dangara, Abaji- Abuja, for allegedly drugging, raping and impregnating a 15-year-old student.

The suspect, Luke Gabriel Ekundayo, from Ilorin, Kwara State, was the victim’s guardian in school, and she spent short holidays in his house. The victim, a senior secondary three (SS3) student took ill in Mr. Ekundayo’s house, and upon taking some drugs administered to her by the suspect, she passed out. On waking up, she saw bloodstains and said she felt uneasy, but did not suspect that the school Bursar, whom her grandmother handed her over to, for protection, could do anything sinister to her.

The victim, an orphan who was on Scholarship, was threatened by the suspect into having sex with him continuously, or he would tell her sponsors to stop paying her school fees. The rape continued until the victim got pregnant.

Reacting to the news of the arrest, the Director-General of NAPTIP, Dame Julie Okah-Donli condemned the actions of the man, and said the action is in line with the name-and-shame policy of the Agency.

“Rapists will be prosecuted for their crime against humanity and NAPTIP will not hesitate to bring the full wrath of the law on any rapist” she said.

She further frowned at the high rate of rape in the society, and cautioned school girls to be careful of the kind of friends they keep, warning that a lot of teenagers are led astray by fellow teenagers, who are unfortunately victims of the crime themselves.

In addition, the DG admonished parents to “be careful of who they entrust their children with as it is unfortunate that the people who are meant to protect the children are the ones who end up exploiting and abusing them”
