Peruzzi reacts after his old tweets were dug up to show him boasting about raping women

Peruzzi has responded after his old tweets were dug up to show him talking about raping women and promoting rape.

In tweets shared between 2010 to 2013, the singer spoke casually about raping women, threatened to rape women and admitted to rape (read here). In one tweet, he joked about the cost of a rape fine.

"Rape fine na 5k dolls abi? Abi e don increase. Lol," he wrote in March 2012.

In others, he said things like, "I will rape her", "person wey I don rape already", and "rape am if she no gree".

The screenshots were available on his timeline until about two hours ago when he began deleting them all after a woman accused him of raping her in 2012.

Responding after the screenshots of his old tweets were shared by multiple Twitter users, Peruzzi, wrote: "MY NAME IS OKOH TOBECHUKWU, I HAVE NEVER AND WILL NEVER BE A RAPIST."

However, Twitter users responded and asked him to explain his old tweets that seem to glorify rape.

Below are more old tweets shared from Peruzzi's account. His other tweets can be found here.

Banky W and Femi Kuti slam FG for giving N27bn to National Assembly for renovation after significantly slashing education and health budget

Banky W and Femi Kuti have slammed the federal government for giving N27bn to the National Assembly for renovation after slashing education and health budget.

In the revised budget, the National Assembly complex renovation budget was reduced to N27.7bn (a reduction of 25.1 per cent) while the Basic Health Care Provision Fund which will take care of the welfare of all primary healthcare centres across the 774 local government areas in the country, was significantly reduced by N44.4bn to N25.5bn (a decrease of more than 42.5 per cent). The Universal Basic Education fund was also reduced from N111.7bn to N51.1bn (a reduction of more than 54.2 per cent).

Reacting to this, Banky W who contested for a seat in the House of Representatives in 2019 described Nigerian leaders as "heartless". He also averred that while people are starving, the national assembly thinks it is okay to spend N27bn on renovation.

Banky W tweeted;

At a time when most Nigerians are seriously struggling with being able to afford everything from FOOD to Healthcare, our National Assembly is going to spend N27 BILLION on "renovations

EDUCATION BUDGET? CUT BY 55% BASIC HEALTHCARE PROVISION FUND?? CUT BY 42.5%! People are starving! And our National Assembly thinks it's okay to spend N27 BILLION on Renovations of their complex!?! This is HEARTLESS! Our Reps & Senators should PLEASE come and explain this to us.

Femi Kuti in his tweets, alleged that same thing occurred in 1999. According to him, lawmakers fought for furniture allowance of N25m each instead of making healthcare , education, electricity, roads their priority.

He wrote;

Same they did in 1999 ( and forever ), they fought for furniture allowances 25m each instead of making healthcare , education,electricity, roads their priority ,what they were voted to do.

They’re cutting healthcare that’s in a BAD state that covid19 exposed . When they are sick they will run to Europe, UK and the USA and leave the masses to die in the horrible state they leave our hospitals.

Governor Zulum suspends entire staff of a hospital for abandoning duty

The entire staff of the general hospital in Ngala, Borno State have been suspended by Governor Babagana Zulum for abandoning their duty.

The governor was said to have paid an unscheduled visit to the hospital on Monday morning, but the entire staff under the government payroll were absent.

They were reported to have abandoned the hospital to humanitarian workers of an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) managing hundreds of patients at the facility, including internally-displaced persons (IDPs).

Governor Babagana Zulum who expressed his disappointment during the unscheduled visit, was received at the medical facility by a field coordinator of the NGO.

He said;

“This is a General Hospital belonging to Borno state government. Unfortunately, there is no single state government staff here to attend to all these patients, and we promptly pay all of them salaries.

“These humanitarian workers from the iNGO (fhi360) are supposed to complement the state Government staff but not to completely take over the Hospital.

“I am directing the Borno State Hospitals Management Board, if there is any staff on the payroll of this Hospital, to immediately suspend all the workers on government payroll. I will be back to this hospital, hoping to see the opposite of what I saw today.”

The Nigerian Army liberated Gambouru/Ngala from Boko Haram terrorists in 2015. With the liberation of border community, Ngala is currently populated by thousands of returnees.

While in Ngala the governor also visited three schools and ordered the rehabilitation of classrooms destroyed by insurgents. He also announced plans to resettle displaced persons in neighbouring communities of Logumani and Gajibo.
