Ogoo – You Are Mine

Ogoo was born Ogochukwu Oye Brigid into a close-knit Nigerian family that hails from Awka in Anambra State.

Years after practising as a certified Barrister at law, Ogochukwu Oye aka Ogoo decided to pursue her first love and passion “Music”

Ogoo made this known in a brief chat with some media executives as she unveiled plans for the release of her debut single, You Are Mine.

In her words: “My passion for music has always been there as long as I can remember. My mum told me that as a three-year-old, I would sing and dance with drummers whenever I hear drum beats. As I grew older, I also found myself loving music and music for me comes naturally”.

“I grew musically by joining the choir at a tender age and even though I was studying, I ensured my music grew as I grew individually. Everyone around me including my parents knew my passion for music.

On why she’s making so many plans towards the release of her debut single – an uncommon act on the current Nigerian music scene – Ogoo hinted that everything points to the fact that the timing is now and wouldn’t want anything short of a divinely orchestrated plan to herald her emergence into the music scene.

“I’m not just one who believes in making just any arrival onto the scene. I just feel this is the right time to push out my first single and I want to announce my debut single with all the needed tools geared towards making it a hit”.

“My first official single is entitled You Are Mine and hopefully it will make many top songs charts after it is officially released by the grace of God . It is of course not my first ever written song, but this collaborative effort done by myself and my producer, just convinced me it is the right and perfect song to announce my arrival on the music scene,” Ogoo hinted.

For a pretty young lady, Ogoo announced that her parents have been the greatest pillar behind her strength as they have consistently shown support for her musically.

We present to you “Ogoo” and her new music “You Are Mine”

An uncompleted two story building collapsed in Makinde Street, Ikeja, Thursday. According to RRS operatives at the scene, the owner of the collapsed building is reportedly based overseas. The Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) had earlier served the builder a 'Stop Work Order' but it wasn't obeyed.

Photo: Suspected militants arrested over recent attacks on oil facilities in Niger Delta

The joint military force, Operation Delta Safe, deployed to the Niger Delta, says its troops have arrested two militants believed to be behind recent attacks on oil infrastructure in the region.
Rear Admiral Suileman Apochi, Commander of Operation Delta Safe, paraded the suspects before reporters on Thursday in Yenagoa, capital of Bayelsa State.

According to Admiral Apochi, the suspected militants are popularly identified in the Niger Delta creeks as "General Eagle" and "General VIP."
He said that the arrest of the suspects, who had allegedly admitted to being the brains behind attacks at Agip’s oilfields in Bayelsa State, was as a result of the tenacity of operations launched against vandals by the joint force.

He noted that the activities of the two arrested militant suspects was responsible for the slump in oil output following several attacks and threats to oil firms.

"I am glad to announce that two notorious kingpins identified as General Eagle and General VIP have been apprehended. From interrogation, they have admitted to committing several crimes," said the commander.

"The criminals and their group have at various times masterminded the destruction of oil infrastructure and sabotage to the economy. They have engaged in illegal bunkering and kidnap of high profile victims. The self-acclaimed General Eagle said he recently organized and blew up one of the oil company’s risers at Golubokin along Obama-Brass pipeline in Bayelsa. He also claimed responsibility in the planting of explosives at Agip's oilfields." Suileman said. The commander said that preliminary investigations had uncovered text message threats to oil firms and their staff, adding that the suspected militants declared their intention to carry out more attacks if their demands for financial gratifications were not met.

He said that troops acting on actionable intelligence raided the militants' hideouts in Yenagoa and arrested three other suspects currently being interrogated.

He said that one of the suspects in the custody of the joint task force claimed during interrogation to be a pirate and "pipeline bleeding expert" responsible for the destruction of several oil facilities.

Admiral Apochi urged aggrieved groups to take advantage of the federal government’s window of opportunities to amicably resolve grievances rather than resorting to criminal acts.

He assured that the military would not relent until the region was sanitized of criminals. He solicited the support of the public through the provision of timely and credible information required to identify and flush out criminals.

He also assured that steps were being taken to ensure a crime-free Christian season as patrols have been intensified on the East-West road as well as the waterways in the Niger Delta region.

American woman cries out as Nigerian husband scams and leaves her after he obtains his Green Card

An American woman, business entrepreneur, Deborah Hendrickson is crying out after her Nigerian husband, Tony Ettah, according to her, 'scammed her, used her to get to the US and then dumped her after he got his Greencard. Read her story below which is a copy of what she submitted to immigration marriage fraud..

"I don't know where to start . . . I guess I'll start with meeting Inyang Obaten Ettah, AKA Tony Ettah back in June 2010, we met through a friend of mine named, Charles. I've been visiting Nigeria since 2008, had an NGO there (Open Arms International) that never really got started, I know lots of people in Nigeria, Rich & Poor.
I thought I was savvy when it came to the Romance Scammers, the 419ers, but, I was not prepared for how Inyang Obaten Ettah PLAYED ME, yes, I did inquire about Inyang via Charles, Charles vouched for Inyang's authenticity (so HE THOUGHT) because Charles knew Inyang for 10 years (at that time - June 2010), there is where it began.

Once Inyang contacted me, we talked, when Inyang told me his age (36 at that time) I was 51, immediately, I hung up on him, he called back thinking we got disconnected, I explained to Inyang that he was way out of my age range and I KNOW the culture in Nigeria of Older, especially AMERICAN WOMEN and younger Nigerian Men, for weeks I ignored his calls, till finally he begged me to just "talk to him," which I did - WRONG FOR ME, but, too late. Inyang talked that sweet talk (I can say that now), he saw I was a Christian and began to use that to his Advantage, I asked Inyang "why won't he leave me alone?" Finally he said "Because GOD SAID YOU ARE MY WIFE so I am pursuing you." Those words took me off guard because NEVER had a man say that to me, and never would I have thought One - Inyang would LIE ON GOD! From there, he got my attention, by that time 2 months had passed (August 2010).

As Inyang and I began conversing, we discussed the difference in Age and the fact that I could not have any children, Inyang response was "it doesn't matter because God said you are my Wife and I had made up in my mind that however God sent my wife, that is how I would ACCEPT her." He shared with me how many women in his church (Faith Tabernacle AKA Winners, David Oyedepo is Pastor) cannot have children, and some are even older than their husbands, but, they still married and are still married today (was referring up to that moment he made that statement). He even shared how his Auntie is in the exact situation (no Child(ren), yet she and her husband are STILL TOGETHER (at that time August 2010).

Time went on, Inyang then asked that I come to Nigeria to visit him, by that time he had CONVINCED me that he was AUTHENTIC and SINCERE - HE WASN'T. Anyway, I visited Inyang December 2010 (6 months after officially meeting). I was in Nigeria for 21 days, the entire time Inyang was the Perfect Host, he took me everywhere, introduced me to EVERYONE, family, friends, enemies, church associates, he even took me to church at Winners' Chapel, Canaan Land, Ota Nigeria; Inyang was so active at Winners, he volunteered as Security (Bus & Church), he pretty much, so I THOUGHT lived in church, always talking about God (to me), he told me how he attended Pre-Marital classes at Winners because he wanted to Prepare to be an EXCELLENT HUSBAND to ME, he had me FOOLED, he was the World's Greatest Pretender.
While in Nigeria Inyang proposed to me (December 21, 2010) during my Launch Party of Royal Entertainment Nigeria, I accepted his Proposal because I was convinced he was AUTHENTIC! He did not perform in the typical way that of a Romance Scammer or Yahoo Boi, as stated, he introduced me to EVERYONE, took me EVERYWHERE, etc. After the proposal, eight months later I returned to Nigeria and we were married 8 months later (August 12, 2011). What I thought that was going to be a Marriage, turned out to be MARRIAGE FRAUD!

I submitted Inyang's Immigration paperwork to USCIS December 12, 2011, the first process was was Approved May 2012, his Interview in Lagos was October 30, 2012 and his Visa was issued, the entire process from submission to Approval was 10 months, Inyang even used that quick process to say "the Lord Caused it to happen because it is HIS WILL because I'm his Wife." LIAR!

Inyang arrived in the U.S. November 21, 2012 and that's when HE CHANGED - IMMEDIATELY! He was no longer the loving speaking, affectionate man I visited December 2012, his excuse was "he's in a new place, give him time to adjust." In the meanwhile I did my part as his wife. I later learned that Inyang never attended school in Nigeria when I took him to our local college (Danville Community College) to enroll, I was upset because Inyang TOLD ME he was college educated (in Nigeria), Education means a lot to me and I only aligned myself with college educated men, so, he could not enroll. he was advised to enroll in the Adult Education program, which he did, but was unable to do the work so he stopped attending. He applied for a job at a Company in Danville, VA (June 6, 2013) and was terminated (July 4, 2013) due to violation of company code by using profane language and misconduct, thereafter Inyang obtained a job at Ebay through Adecco a Temporary Employment Agency, he didn't keep that job and was released approximately 4 weeks later (those dates elude me). Thereafter Inyang could not find employment in Danville, VA, it was a strain on the marriage.

By April 2014 a friend of mine, conference with Inyang and I to discuss Inyang moving to Atlanta, Georgia to work for him, the plan was for Inyang to move, get established, and I to follow no less than 6 months later - that NEVER HAPPENED! Inyang officially moved to Atlanta April 14, 2014, and my friend did as promised, gave Inyang a job, Inyang and I talked everyday, he visited me periodically in Danville, VA; when I visited Inyang in Atlanta, he was always too busy to be with me, always said "he was working," causing my trip to be wasted. As time went on I noticed I was not hearing from Inyang, his excuse was always "he's working," yet he NEVER SENT ANY MONEY TO ME FOR the HOUSEHOLD in Danville, his excuse was "he had to pay for expenses where he was staying," My friend arranged temporary lodging for Inyang in Atlanta, GA.

I didn't notice until AFTERWARDS that Inyang played Me, what I mean by that is, from April 14, 2014 to July 2014 I barely heard from Inyang. By August 2014 he began calling regularly, his excuse was, he got a new Job in Smyrna, GA and was flexible and could now talk when at work. By September 2014 Inyang did a surprise visited, I realized AFTERWARD that it was because the I-751-Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence Arrived, Inyang gathered all documents, and the form was Signed by me. I remained consumed with the preparation of opening my Christian Venue, a Gospel Cafe in Danville, VA, which opened November 2014. Inyang did another surprised visit for Thanksgiving 2014.

Thereafter it went back to him not calling. I visited Inyang in Atlanta, GA March 14, 2015 after the last seeing him since November 2014, that visit did not turn out to be good, Inyang complained that I could not stay with him in Atlanta, GA 30331 because there "was no place for me to sleep," so, I rented a Motel at the Super 8 in Stockbridge, GA, Inyang spent 1 night with me then left me at the hotel, not hearing from him again, he said he had to "go home to wash clothes." I left Georgia devastated!

My daughter married March 24, 2015, to appease me from his doing me wrong a week later he attended her wedding, he was very cold, everyone around noticed his negative attitude towards me and quickly voices their opinion. March 26, 2015 was the LAST TIME I SAW INYANG. Inyang kept in touch, each time asking me "did his Permanent Green Card arrive," he said he needed it because his job was in jeapordy and now that his finances was getting better better, he needed to keep his job at United Distributors, Inc. so he can begin sending me money - EVENTUALLY, HE NEVER SENT A DIME! Finally, May 1, 2015 his Permanent Resident Card arrived, I mailed it to him because he expressed the urgency of it to show his Employer.

Once Inyang received his Permanent Resident card, he BLOCKED ME from ALL Social Network, MOVED to 1121 Ridgebrook Trail, Duluth, GA 30096, and changed his Job (unknown to me now). Because Inyang refused to give me the necessary job information (while at United Distributors, Inc.) I was unable to apply and received Healthcare, Inyang filed his 2014 Income Tax but I have no clue under what Status, he did tell me that he filed SINGLE for 2015, and we were still married. Inyang changed his Driver's License from Virgina to Georgia Driver's License, he then moved his phone from my AT&T Family Plan to his own.

Inyang has severed ALL TIES WITH ME, as soon as he RECEIVED HIS PERMANENT RESIDENT CARD, to me, showing MARRIAGE FRAUD, IF he was serious about our Marriage, we would still be together.

Inyang has told many lies on me, saying, I threw water in his face, hit him, etc., I KNOW his Nigerian friends put him up to saying that, because IF I'd done those things, that's considered ABUSE and he could have called Danville Local Police and file charges against me, but, IT NEVER HAPPENED. He must make me look like the bad guy when all I ever did was love him.

His plan was for us to REMAIN married so he can file for Citizenship in 5 years, because by now I figured out he USED ME for MARRIAGE FRAUD, he knew I would not submit the necessary paperwork for citizenship, he told me he could still do it in 5 years and that I could not STOP HIM FROM BECOMING A CITIZEN. Though it's MY WORD AGAINST HIS, all I have is HIS ACTIONS, He ADMITTED TO ME THAT he USED ME, and that I CAUSED IT BECAUSE I KEPT TELLING HIM THAT I SENSE HE WAS USING ME AND MY "WORDS" CAUSED IT TO HAPPEN (Him using me). When Inyang made that statement I immediately filed (online) a Fraud Case.

I divorced Inyang August 2016, he gladly signed the Papers because he has a Fiancee, who he's probably married to by now, offering him the opportunity to now file for citizenship.

I have been told that USCIS WILL DO NOTHING, because Inyang has not committed a Crime, YES HE HAS, He COMMITTED MARRIAGE FRAUD! That's a Federal Crime. I've since learned (by people who know him) that he has a Shipping Company, he ships cars to Nigeria, and he has a Clothing Line Winners Clothes, he makes his money and sends it back to Nigeria, Inyang once told me that America is the Land of Opportunity and how he WILL RAPE this Country of their dollars and take advantage of All Opportunities, and he's doing it.

I am a FIGHTER, I know of 15 Women who has Married Nigerian men and the men used them for Green Card Purposes and they "think" nothing can be done, I want to show them that, YES, SOMETHING CAN BE DONE! YES! they can be DEPORTED for Immigration Marriage Fraud.

I will sound the Alarm, Once Trump is in Office I will contact him and tell him my Story, I'm almost sure I will get RESULTS! Inyang should not have played with my life, I am a Good, Christian Woman Who Believes in Doing Right - all The Time. I trust that the Lord WILL GIVE ME JUSTICE by the Fraud Division recognizing that Inyang Obaten Ettah MARRIED ME FOR IMMIGRATION MARRIAGE FRAUD.
