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”
