Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer Eric Holder indicted by grand jury on murder charges, faces life in prison

Slain rapper, Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer Eric Holder has been indicted by a grand jury on murder charges.

The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office announced the arraignment this week, explaining Holder was indicted on May 9 on one count of murder, two counts each of attempted murder and assault with a firearm and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.

“The indictment, which was unsealed today, also includes allegations that Holder personally used a handgun and caused great bodily injury and death,” the news release read.

Holder had already been charged on April 8, but the indictment will allow the case to skip a preliminary hearing and head straight to trial. If convicted, Holder could face a maximum sentence of life in state prison.

Holder pleaded not guilty to the charges in court on Tuesday. He is scheduled to return for a pretrial hearing on June 18.

Nipsey Hussle was fatally gunned down outside his Los Angeles clothing store, Marathon Clothing Company on Sunday, March 31, 2019. He was 33.

Two other men were also shot, though they survived their injuries.

The news of Holder’s indictment comes a week after his attorney Chris Darden, who was famously part of the prosecution team in the O.J. Simpson trial, withdrew from the murder case after receiving threats against him and his family.

It was also reported this week that Eric Holder allegedly pistol-whipped a man shortly before he killed Nipsey at his clothing store.

Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammad dragged to court over alleged age falsification

Tochi Michael, a 46-year-old businessman has dragged Justice Tanko Muhammad, the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, before a Federal Capital Territory High Court over alleged age falsification.

According to reports, in the originating summons with suit No. FCT/HC/BW/CV/79/2019, filed before the court in April, the petitioner alleged that the CJN deliberately falsified his date of birth.

Michael alleged that the acting CJN falsified his date of birth from December 31, 1950 as contained in all his official records, including that of WAEC, to December 31, 1953 upon his appointment as a judicial officer.

The petitioner in the originating summons is praying the court to determine whether such act by the acting CJN does not constitute a criminal act of perjury, falsification and forgery. Michael in the originating summons also prayed the court to determine whether by falsifying his date of birth upon being appointed to the Nigeria Bench as a judicial officer, he has not breached the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The petitioner also prayed the court to determine whether Justice Mohammad had not breached the Code of Conduct for judicial officers and consequently brought the image of the Nigerian judiciary to disrepute and odium. The petitioner prayed the court for a declaration that the defendant falsified his date of birth and that he had desecrated the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

He also prayed for an order directing the Inspector-General of Police to prosecute the defendant for the offence of perjury and an any other order which the court may deem fit. At the Tuesday’s proceedings, counsel for the CJN, Mr Sam Ologunorisa (SAN), informed the court that the plaintiff and his counsel were not in the court. Ologunorisa told the court that it seemed the plaintiff and his counsel were “running away” from the suit they filed, stressing that the court should do the needful in the interest of justice.

“We filed a notice of preliminary objection, a counter-affidavit and a written address. We urge the court to deem it fit that the originating summons has been argued. We have to look at Exhibit III of the originating summons. We urge the court to dismiss the suit. The case is meant to scandalise the CJN,” he said.

Justice Danlami Senchi said another opportunity would be given to the petitioner to appear in the court to prove the allegation. He adjourned the case till Friday.

Two ex-aides sue communication minister, Adebayo Shittu for allegedly diverting their salaries and allowances

Adebayo Shittu, the Minister of Communications has been dragged to court by two of his former aides over alleged diverted salaries and allowances totalling N21m.

The aides, Razaq Olubodun and Victor Oluwadamilare, former personal assistant and special assistant media, respectively, in two separate suits filed on their behalf by the same counsel, Adewale Lawal, are praying the court to order the payment of their outstanding salaries and allowances which the minister denied them while serving under him.

While Olubodun, in his suit before the Abuja Division of the National Industrial Court, numbered NICN/Abj/132/2019, is seeking to recover from the minister the sum of N9.8m allegedly paid alongside the minister’s salaries and allowances for 24 months; Oluwadamilare in his suit, NICN/Abj/133/2019 is claiming N11.7m purportedly his outstanding salaries and allowances for 28 months.

The duo are seeking the order of the court to declare that the non-payment of full salaries and allowances to them for those periods as wrongful, illegal and unconstitutional and that the minister should be ordered to pay them their unpaid salaries and allowances according to the Federal Government’s directive for payment of aides to the minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Equally, the claimants are asking for an order on the defendant to pay the sum of N50m to each of them as aggravated damages and to also pay them their full taxed costs of the prosecution of the suits. The claimants averred that by their letters of appointments as PA and SA respectively, they were informed that their monthly emolument would be in line with the existing practice for paying PA and SA to a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Though the claimants noted that the above-stated fact was indicated in ‘paragraph 3’ of their letters of appointments dated 23rd Nov, 2015, the defendant “tried to make the salaries and allowances of the PA and SA to the minister to look like his own personal affairs.”

While Olubodun claimed he received just N1m from the minister all through his period of service; Oluwadamilare claimed he was paid thrice to the tune of N2.3m in his 28 months of service under the minister, alleging that the defendant collected all salaries and allowances belonging to them from the FGN but refused to forward or remit same to them. The claimants recalled that a circular from the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, dated 27th July, 1999, indicated in paragraph 1a that the salaries of PAs and SAs to ministers were Grade Levels 12 and 16, steps 4 respectively.

Shittu was accused by the former aides of applying intimidation, harassment, draconian and Machiavellian approach and threatening to take them to the court where he would ensure they were frustrated and would still not pay them the salaries in contention each time they demanded their rights while serving under him.

They claimed they had been subjected to immense suffering, ridicule and untold hardship as a result of the denial of their rights by the minister. No date has been fixed for hearing of the case filed on the 20th of this month.

#NairaMarley: Stop justifying fraud and cyber-crime- actress Foluke Daramola tells Nigerians (video)

Following the arrest and arraignment of singer, Naira Marley on allegations of fraud and cybercrime, actress Foluke Daramola has appealed to Nigerians to desist from justifying the alleged crime committed by the singer.

In a video she posted on her Instagram page this morning, Foluke said the fact that there is no money in circulation does not in anyway justify anyone commiting crime just to make money. According to her

''Sometimes I wonder how our people think. One thing I want us to know is that two wrongs don't make a right. Just because there is no money in the country, there is no work does not justify corruption, does not justify evil. Because our politicians are doing it does not make it right for us to do it. It is really sad when we try to paint bad as good. I don;t want to mention names and I am not going to tag anybody. We should under stand the implications, the depth of what we do''.
