19-year-old Nigerian man remanded in prison for allegedly defiling sisters aged 6 & 8

A19-year-old man, Andrew Chinedu, has been remanded in prison over his alleged defilement of two of his sisters aged eight and six years.

Chinedu was yesterday arraigned before the Ogudu magistrate court where the magistrate, Mrs E. Kubeinje, ordered that he be remanded in prison for 65 days pending the receipt of legal advice from the State Director of Public Prosecutions, DPPs.

Chinedu, an apprentice who resides in Irawo, was dragged before the magistrate court on a two-count charge of child defilement and sexual assault.

The police prosecutor, Inspector Lucky Ihiehie, told the court that the accused committed the offences between the months of June 2018 and September 2018 at Abayomi Street, Irawo, in Ajegunle area of Ikorodu in Lagos State. Ihiehie said the Lagos State Domestic and Social Violence Office, which initially handled the case and confirmed the violation of the girls, referred the father to report the case to the Police. Ihiehie said that the accused lived in the same compound with the parents of the girls. According to him, when the older of the siblings was questioned, she claimed that the accused normally calls her into his room when her parents were not around to have sex with her.

“Any time I refused, he would beat me. He normally promises to buy me sweet but he never did,” Ihiehie quoted the child as saying

The prosecutor also said that the six-year-old girl corroborated what her sister said and told the Police that the accused always had sex with her whenever their parents were not around and beats them if they refused.

“He would tell her he wants to show her something and carry her to his bed and remove her cloths. She said it was when her elder sister fell sick and their father took them to the hospital that she opened up to him.” Ihiehie said

He added that the offences contravened Sections 137 and 259 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The Magistrate who refused the plea bargain of the suspect, adjourned the case until March 20 for mention.

Photos from the scene of Kenyan hotel terrorist attack as survivors continue to beg for rescue

15 people were killed when Islamist terrorists launched an attack on a luxury hotel in Kenya yesterday.

The terrorists fired shots as they barged into DusitD2 hotel complex in Nairobi on the afternoon of Tuesday, January 15, 2019. They were armed with bombs and guns.

Trapped civilians were seen escaping through a window at the hotel. Those who couldn't escape sent messages out begging for medical help. At the scene, there was blood, shattered glass and bodies slumped over chairs.

The death toll is reported to be at 14. Eleven Kenyans, an American and a Briton were among the casualties, morgue staff said. Tje victims had not been identified.

It is feared that the death toll will rise once it is safe to go into the hotel.

Kenyan authorities said yesterday that the situation had been brought under control and the scene secured. But first responders say gunshots were still heard at 4am (GMT) today. Blasts and shots had punctuated the night, making it hard to rescue scores of people trapped inside.

Al-Shabab, the Somalia-based group that carried out the 2013 Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi that left 67 people dead, claimed responsibility for yesterday's bloodshed.

Police said:

The area around 14 Riverside Drive is a Crime Scene … under an active security operation.

CCTV footage captured the armed gunmen moving through the complex with military precision, looking for victims. They then went from office to office shooting randomly.

In panic, people took cover wherever they could — behind cars, in offices or inside bathrooms. Robert Murire said it was chaos.

He said:

When those guys came in, they just started shooting. They were not normal people. Just they were three people. They had green trousers, green tops, they had something here and bullets, black bullets.

Many of the victims had been dining in the Secret Garden restaurant and lay slumped at their tables.

Families who had gone to the Chiromo morgue seeking loved ones were told they could not view the bodies until a forensic investigation had been performed, provoking grief and anger.

One man who only gave his name as David said he had yet to hear from a relative in the hotel complex.

He told Reuters at the morgue:

I have been trying to reach him since yesterday when the incident happened … I spoke to him when the incident started around 3.30, when they started shooting … his phone went off around 4 pm.

The family of one 35-year-old man collapsed in the courtyard when they heard that a body had arrived with his identification papers.

The co-ordinated attack began with an explosion that targeted three vehicles outside a bank, and a suicide bombing in the hotel lobby that severely wounded a number of guests, said Kenya’s national police chief, Joseph Boinnet.

Survivors reported hearing a shattering blast and saw people mowed down by gunmen as they sat at a cafe. Victims were left lying on tables, bleeding.

Enoch Kibet, who works as a cleaner at the cafe and managed to crawl out a basement gate, said;

We were changing our shifts, and that is when I heard a loud blast and people were screaming.

I couldn’t believe I was alive. The blast was so loud and shook the whole complex.

Kenyan hospitals appealed for blood donations even as the number of wounded remained unclear.

Burger King shades Donald Trump for misspelling 'Hamburgers' on Twitter

American global chain of hamburger fast food restaurants, Burger King have taken a swipe at President Donald Trump‘s tweet that misspelled the word “hamburgers” as “hamberders.”

It all started when the President treated the National Championship winning Clemson Tigers football team to fast food and tweeted about it.

He wrote: “Great being with the National Champion Clemson Tigers last night at the White House. Because of the Shutdown I served them massive amounts of Fast Food (I paid), over 1000 hamberders etc. Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!” Trump tweeted.

Trump has since deleted the tweet, but here is Burger King’s response.
