Deputy Senate President, Omo-Agege was never convicted in US - Nigerian Court rules

A lawsuit seeking to sack Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege on grounds of being convicted in the United States, has been struck out by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

Justice Othman Musa who presided over the case, held that the plantiff wasted the court's time because the Deputy Senate President was never convicted by any court of law nor was he under any criminal sentence.

He thereafter ordered the plantiff to pay N1million to Senator Omo-Agege as damages for the lawsuit.

Justice Musa added that the conviction which can stop a Nigerian from holding a political office for 10 years is that made by a Nigerian court.

'This is certainly a dream come true. It also feels like the right time to take this step,' Steven Bergwijn told Dutch publication De Telegraaf.

'I have always looked up to a top coach like Mourinho. And now I'm going to play for him. I come here to win prizes.

'The club has already shown last year, in the Champions League, that they can compete. I hope I can show people quickly that I can be important.

'It's great to be here. Just look at the facilities around us. When I play FIFA on the PlayStation, I almost always choose a team from the Premier League.

'I look forward to playing in that great atmosphere.'

Steven Bergwijn, who is an exceptional dribbler and has fantastic ball control is primarily a winger on the left but can play anywhere along the frontline. During his 149 appearances for PSV, he won three Eredivisie titles, scored 31 goals and provided 41 assists.

Rihanna is 'dating rapper A$AP Rocky' following split from Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel

Rihanna is reportedly dating A$AP Rocky after splitting from her billionaire beau Hassan Jameel.

Riri split from Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel last week after about three years of dating. But she has reportedly moved on quickly to rapper A$AP Rocky, according to a report in The Sun.

Speculations began spreading after Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were seen spending time together in New York. The old friends, who were reported to have had a romantic liaison in past years, were seen getting cozy at the 2020 Yams Day Benefit Concert on January 17, the same day Rihanna and Jameel broke up.

It has now been claimed that they shared a hotel suite during the trip.

A source told The Sun’s Bizarre column: "They shared a hotel suite during that trip in New York. However, Rihanna is reluctant to put a label on it as it’s so soon after Hassan.

"They’re really enjoying each other’s company and taking things easy as it’s still early days.

"It's really casual between them and she's not thinking about whether there's a future with Rocky. She's a newly-single girl having fun."

This isn't the first time Rihanna and Rocky have been romantically linked.

They were first spotted packing on the PDA in New York City back in 2013. But the rapper quickly shut down the rumour.

"I don't even look at her like that. She's sexy, but I'm good," he said at the time as reported by Distractify.

Meanwhile, speculation about Rihanna and Drake has been spreading. There are also speculations that Chris Brown is looking to get back with Rihanna after she shared a post talking about being in love with a woman after all this time (read here).

A source claimed to InTouch: "Don’t feel sorry for Rihanna, she’s got men lined up waiting for a chance with her. A$AP isn’t the only guy on her radar.

Her friendship with Drake has always been something she’s flirted with and if they ever went public, well, that would be huge.

"They would be in Beyoncé and Jay [Z] territory then. Put it this way, Rihanna has options."
