Rape- 96 Suspects Arrested In Kano Between April & May 2017

Rape- 96 Suspects Arrested In Kano Between April & May 2017


The Kano State police Command, on Tuesday said it had arrested a total of 96 suspected rapists in the state between April and May.

The Command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Magaji Majiya, said at an interaction with newsmen in Kano that 77 of the suspects had been charged  to court, while eight cases were under investigation.

He said the suspects are between ages 23 and 75.

“It is disheartening to note that from April to date we have recorded 85 incidents of rape and other related offences. A total number of 96 suspects were arrested and 77 cases have already been charged to court for Prosecution,” he said.

Majiya expressed regret that indecency and unnatural offences have been on the increase in the state.
He said the Commissioner of Police, Rabiu Yusuf, has made it a priority to ensure that all such cases were thoroughly  investigated and prosecuted.

The PPRO assured the public that the police would continue to apprehend all suspects involved in  crimes.

He urged parents and guardians to monitor the movement and behaviour of their children, so as to  keep them away from criminal activities.

Majiya appealed to religious leaders to collaborate with the command in sensitising  the youth on the need to shun evil acts.

He further called on traditional rulers, community leaders and other well meaning residents of the state to join hands with security agencies to fight crime in their communities.

Video: Ryan – Chikito

“Ryan, the fresh faced Afro pop singer, songwriter drops a follow up single after his very well accepted debut hit “Gimme love”.
The Dr. Dolor Entertainment crooner seems to have evolved quickly with a mature laid back delivery on ‘Chikito’- a pop fusion of Reggae and Afrobeat built on a single chord progression that strings listeners on through the groovy, head bobbing tune as Ryan speaks of his love for a variety of women the world over.
The music video is no wall flower either. Viewers are bombarded with endless colors and patterns in multiple hues and designs as Ryan slays in a series of outfits; one of which is a bespoke blue and yellow wavy patterned ankara blazer as he plays to the camera while flanked by gorgeous “modelesque” vixens.
‘Chikito’ was produced by Willbeatz and is further proof that Ryan is no one hit wonder.

What You Need To Know About The Manchester Terrorist Attack

What You Need To Know About The Manchester Terrorist Attack



Britain is on critical terror alert with military troops set to bolster police forces across the nation amid fears Manchester attacker Salman Abedi did not act alone.

Prime Minister Theresa May has raised the threat level to the highest possible rating, meaning another atrocity is expected imminently.

Here's everything we know about what happened in Manchester on Monday night, all the arrests so far, and how the government is dealing with the threat.

What is the latest?

Mrs May has raised the UK threat level to critical, saying a "wider group of individuals" could have been involved in the Manchester Arena blast rather than just suicide bomber Abedi.

Special Forces have been deployed to Manchester ready to engage in the hunt for accomplices after Abedi detonated a homemade bomb in the foyer of the Manchester Arena on Monday night, killing 22 people, including an eight year old girl, moments after US singer Ariana Grande finished performing.

Police and counter-terrorism agencies immediately mounted a massive inquiry while the Islamic State terror group claimed responsibility.

A total of four people have now been arrested, including three men in south Manchester on Wednesday morning. The first arrest happened on Tuesday in nearby Chorlton when a 23-year-old man was held.

What is Operation Temperer?

Operation Temperer is the government plan to put up to 3,800 soldiers on the streets in response to a major terrorist threat. It was devised in 2015 and had been a secret until it was accidentally leaked to a newspaper.

Mrs May said last night that the operation was now in force and armed soldiers would guard "key locations" across London.

The move is temporary but it's not known how long the heightened state of alert will remain in place.
The unprecedented move puts Mrs May at odds with her predecessor David Cameron who was reluctant to use the controversial power.

It's the first time in 10 years the UK threat level has been raised to critical.

What do we know about Salman Abedi?

Abedi was born in Manchester in 1994 and is of Libyan descent.

The second youngest of four children, his parents Samia Tabbal, 50, and father, Ramadan Abedi, a security officer, were Libyan refugees who came to the UK to escape the Gaddafi regime. They have lived in the Fallowfield area of south Manchester for at least 10 years.

Abedi studied business at Salford University but dropped out before completing his degree. He is thought to have attended the Manchester Islamic Centre, also known as Didsbury Mosque, along with his parents and siblings.

A family friend, who asked not to be named, described him as "normal" and said they were known to the Libyan community in the city.

It has emerged that Abedi had travelled to Libya, raising fears he had been trained there and posing questions for the security services on whether he should have been tracked.

French interior minister Gerard Collomb has said Abedi is believed to have travelled to Syria and had "proven" links with the Islamic State terror group.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd confirmed the UK security services had been aware of the British-born 22-year-old.

"We do know that he was known up to a point to the intelligence services," she told Sky News.
"I am sure that we will get more information about him over the next few days and the next few weeks."

Were there accomplices?

Investigators fear Abedi was part of a wider network of Isil-inspired terrorists.
Experts believe the device detonated at the concert was so sophisticated that Abedi must have either been given specialist training abroad or used a bomb made by a technician who has not yet been captured.

What did Abedi do on Monday?

Abedi travelled to the Manchester Arena and detonated a homemade bomb packed with nuts and bolts near the foyer just minutes after Grande had finished her final song.

Thousands of young fans and their families were streaming out of the venue - Europe's largest indoor arena - when they were caught up in the explosion at about 10:30pm.

Panic and confusion quickly spread and witnesses reported being thrown across the floor by the force of the blast.

Grande, 23, who was led to safety, said on Twitter: "broken. from the bottom of my heart, [I] am so so sorry. [I] don't have words."

Who are the victims?

Many children and young people are among the dead and missing.

The first victim was named as college student Georgina Callander. The 18-year-old "superfan", from Whittle-le-Woods in Lancashire, had met her idol Miss Grande in 2015 and had posted excitedly about the moment on Instagram.

Eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos from Leyland, Lancashire is the youngest victim so far. She was caught in the blast after becoming separated from her mother Lisa and sister Ashlee Bromwich, who is in her 20s. They are both being treated for shrapnel injuries.

Olivia Campbell, 15, from Bury, was also killed, her mother said on Facebook on Tuesday night.

Tributes have also been paid to 26-year-old John Atkinson from Bury, and Marcin and Angelika Klis, Polish parents of a student at the University of York, who were both at the concert to pick up their children.

Kelly Brewster, 32, from Sheffield was also killed and leaves behind a young daughter, Phoebe. Mothers Alison Howe, 45, and Lisa Lees, 47, from Royton, Oldham, died as they were waiting to collect their teenage daughters.

PR manager Martyn Hett, from Stockport died after attending the concert with a friend.
Meanwhile, many of the 59 people hurt are being treated for life-threatening injuries. Twelve of those rushed to hospital were children. Many people are still missing.

What's happening in Manchester today?

A cordon remains in place around the Arena and Manchester Victoria Station (which is attached to the Arena) while forensic officers examine the scene and police continue investigations around the city.

Manchester Victoria is likely to remain closed for several days. Trains are not running to, from or through the station, with services diverted or cancelled. Metrolink trams are also not operating through the station.

Who can I call if I am concerned about a loved one or have information?

Anyone with concerns over loved ones can contact 0161 856 9400 or 0161 856 9900 for assistance.
Any footage from the scene can be uploaded at ukpoliceimageappeal.co.uk or ukpoliceimageappeal.com.
The anti-terrorist hotline is 0800 789321. Anyone with urgent concerns should contact 999.

Is the timing relevant?

The blast occurred on the anniversary of the murder of soldier Lee Rigby, who was hacked to death on a London street on May 22, 2013.

Rigby's gruesome murder gained international notoriety when Michael Adebolajo was filmed by passers-by standing in the street with blood-soaked hands trying to justify the attack.
Chris Phillips, the former head of the National Counter Terrorism Security Office, told BBC Radio Four's Today programme yesterday: "That may be significant as well."

What about the June 8 election?

Campaigning for the June 8 General Election has been suspended following the attack, which is the worst terrorist atrocity ever to take place during a UK election period.

Mrs May spoke with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in the hours after the blast and agreed to put the contest on hold until further notice.

Leaders of all main parties sent messages of support and sympathy for those caught up in the horrific incident.

Funke Adesiyan Blasts ‘Social Media Mourner’ Celebrities After Moji Olaiya’s Death

Funke Adesiyan Blasts ‘Social Media Mourner’ Celebrities After Moji Olaiya’s Death



Nollywood actress, Funke Adesiyan speaks out against “social media mourner” celebrities who did not support the efforts to raise funds for Moji Olaiya after her untimely passing.

See her post below;
Life is funny. People are really not worth the trouble. The essence of being part of an association, group et al is so you can be there for one another in matters related to you all.
Its really a shame that many artistes came on social media, flooded Moji Olaiya’s house shedding tears and when it boils down to extending a helping hand, many chickened out. Artistes were billed 100k each to bring Moji’s body down. If 50 of us contributes 100k, we have 5million which is about $15k (medical rate) Many didn’t contribute a penny.
All they know how to do is flaunt wealth that they dont have on social media. The house you live in is being paid for by others, the car you drive na dash, the supposed business you own, you are not making a dime from. My sister/brother, quit living large and forming rich on other people largesse. Forming oga madam on top nothing! You only have right to flaunt your own sweat. If not, siddon Jeje and make less noise please! We don’t need to turn to beggers to help one another. We all could be one another’s helper. If you are Moji’s friend/colleague and you didn’t contribute a dime towards helping to move her down, you should take her picture down!
Thank you to the very few artistes, socialites, friends who contributed to save the day. May God bless you all.

Ibe Kachikwu- I Will Resign If Nigeria Continues To Import Fuel By 2019

Ibe Kachikwu- I Will Resign If Nigeria Continues To Import Fuel By 2019



While speaking to Stephen Sackur of BBC’s Hardtalk, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu said that he will resign if Nigeria continues to import fuel by 2019.
“I have delivered on all that I have promised when I came into office. First, I took Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and made it a profit-making organisation. This is the first time in history, I reshaped the organisation.
I removed cash call deficits of over $6bn and renegotiated it. Everything that I have promised since coming into office, I have delivered. I will deliver on the refineries and I’m committed to it.
I will also deliver a future for oil that makes sense for Nigeria. Bear in mind one has been there for one and a half years, the president has been there for two years; I can’t pretend that we’re going to solve in one day all the problems that happened in Nigeria in the past,” he said.
“Our target is 2019…don’t worry, I put the date, I’ll work it,” Kachikwu said, when asked when Nigeria will attain self-sufficiency in crude oil refining.

Sackur then said: “And if you don’t achieve it, you’ll walk?” Kachikwu replied: “Yes, of course, that is the reason why you are in government.”

Melania Trump Slaps Off President Trump’s Hand Publicly During Israeli visit



For the US first couple’s visit to Israel, there was an unexpected awkward moment between Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump.

Walking down the red carpet at Ben Gurion Airport with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara, President Trump extended his hand to the First Lady, who promptly slapped it away in full view of the cameras.

As expected, Twitter could not get enough of their body language or the fact that the US President was walking side by side with the Israeli first couple, leaving Melania a step behind.

Unlawful Detention- James Ibori Gets £1 As Damages From UK

Unlawful Detention- James Ibori Gets £1 As Damages From UK



A London High Court has awarded £1 as damages to be paid to former Delta State governor and convicted money launderer James Ibori over his claim of unlawful detention by British Home Secretary Amber Rudd, UK Evening Standard reports.

Justice Cheema-Grubb ruled that Ibori was unlawfully held for one day, 18 hours and 10 minutes between December 20 and 21 last year.

Ibori had demanded £4,000 as damages.

“There is no compensatory loss to Mr Ibori and I fix nominal damages at £1,” the judge said.
Ibori was jailed for fraud totalling nearly £50m in April 2012.

Ibori who was due to be released on December 20, 2016, was detained by the Home Office after indicating that there was no intention to deport Ibori to Nigeria until he handed over at least £57m “proceeds of crime”.
High Court Justice May ordered Ibori to be freed on conditions, describing the attempts to detain as “quite extraordinary”.

He was subsequently released and he returned to Nigeria in February 2017.

Marriage Is Not For This Generation- 9ice

Marriage Is Not For This Generation- 9ice


Nigerian indigenous singer, 9ice after advising Nigerian young men on marriage, went further to also state that real marriages can’t be truly found amongst our present generation as they are not as submissive as they should be.

He also talked about the news, or rather rumour that stated he is married. The Hip hip artiste said he is not married, has never remarried, and he is presently single, he is not ready to mingle.
The singer went further to say that people do not understand marriage in this generation, hence his statement that marriage is not for this generation.

According to 9ice, the lack of submissiveness in the present generation will not make it possible for them to stay married. With this statement, it is okay to conclude that 9ice sees marriage in a very traditional way and he believes that there is a miscommunication between genders as guys want the traditional definition of marriage while ladies have created a 21st century definition, so to him, there has to a new definition that accommodates the needs of the couple. They should create a definition that they can agree upon and work with rather than coming together under different concept and then spend less than a year together. The marriage should be one based on love rather than traditional or family expectations.

To the singer whose yard stick for marriage is his parents, he’s looking for a woman that will kneel to serve him his meal, and he knows that the women in this generation will not do that due to “civilization” and all they have been exposed to.

So the bottom line for 9ice is; where marriage is concerned, this generation is lost and it is either they retrace their steps or find a new step to agree on and cohesively walk together.

She was accompanied to the event by her family dubbed "Britain's Most Brilliant family" to have been invited  to Buckingham Palace in central London which is the London residence of the Queen of England.

With her achievement today, she becomes the youngest scientist ever to get this award, as most young people get the Queen's honour for sports.


The eldest daughter of world renowned Professor Chris and Ann Imafidon whose family has been dubbed the Brainiest Family in Europe, Anne-Marie holds the record of being one of the youngest managers of Fortune 100 top companies and later became an assistant Vice President with German's top bank, Deutsche bank. In school, due to participation in the www.ExcellenceinEduc­ation.org.uk programme, she set a new record to become the youngest girl to ever pass two High school (GCSE)
examinations — for Mathematics and Information Technology and A-level computing at the age of 11 in Britain.

Due to her high exceptional brilliance, she received a British Scholarship to study Mathematics at the John Hopkins University at the age of 13 in 2003. Two years later, she commenced a degree at Oxford University after which she enrolled for her Masters degree setting another record of the youngest Masters degree holder from the Ivy
league university.

Dr Imafidon, who is a multi-linguist, speaks six languages and has worked with Goldman Sachs, Hewlett-Packard, Deutsche Bank, and Lehman Brothers. In 2013, she founded Stemettes, a social enterprise which inspires the next generation of women into pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics with an objective to break barriers women who pursue a career in the field face.

Stemettes, which grants awards to young women, have programs workshops and events designed to introduce young women to STEM careers, concepts, and role models, have attracted over 7000 young women from across the UK, Ireland and Europe.

The 27 year old said her achievements was as a result of her unique training administered by her parents.

“I’m ecstatic beyond words as this is divine and simply God-sent. Nobody would have expected this when my journey started with the mathematical and science games at Excellence in Education (EIE)
programme a few years ago. This programme equipped me with the unique pedagogical techniques which makes learning fun and it is radically different from conventional school. It helps anyone tackle educational and even professional challenges with ease,.” She said.

Dr Imafidon’s rather unique achievements at a young age has stood herout as a person to watch out for by the British press; she was named on Evening Standard’s recent list of ’25 under 25s’ and a Guardian ‘Top 10 women in tech you need to know’ as well as being the UK IT Industry & British Computer Society’s Young IT Professional of the Year in 2013.

Her father, an eminent adviser to European, and American governments, presidents and monarchs, Professor Chris Imafidon, known as the patriarch of Britain's brainiest family, said he received the news of this honour with shock, and that the celebrations for this award will last a year and ripple over a lifetime.

“Like every parent would feel, we are still in shock. This is simply God-orchestrated. I, personally never believed that her young career would accelerate to this historic height. This is beyond belief,” he said in a chat.


The Imafidon family definitely have the achievers blood running in their DNA as not only Anne-Marie dominates their achievements wall of fame. All five children have set new records in scholarships, sports and music. For example, Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon's sister, Christiana,
24, is the youngest student to ever study at an undergraduate institution at any British university at 11; another sister, Samantha, 17, having passed two rigorous high school-level mathematics and
statistics exams at the age of six, while the twins, Peter and Paul, made British history as the youngest students to ever enter high school when they became the youngest to ever pass the University of
Cambridge’s advanced mathematics exam, setting world records by passing the A/AS-level math papers.

However, the head of the family, world renowned professor Chris Imafidon argues that every child is a genius if provided with the appropriate tools, technology, techniques and methodology.

With the Imafidon family setting across the world, he advised parents to change their methods of education in an obvious changing world in order to explore every child’s gifts and talents. Every parent should embrace the re-engineered ExcellenceinEducatio­n.org.uk approach.

“The same God has given every child gifts and talents. We parents must join the ExcellenceinEducatio­n.org.uk in developing such massive potential. As stated in my forthcoming book entitled "The Genius in You", we can't use the old methodology of learning. Schools and
society must wake to the re-engineered system of education that understands that there is a genius in every child and greatness in every adult. This genius is irrespective of ethnicity, gender,
nationality, postcode, class or creed. So every family can equal or exceed our achievements.”

Prof. Imafidon revealed that Anne-Marie will be visiting Nigeria very soon to also offer Nigeria young minds interested in pursuing a career in STEM an opportunity to realize their dreams.

“Our grandparents taught us that charity begins at home. We are very enthusiastic about Africa and must contribute our quota to the training and education of young minds. We want to launch a bigger program in Africa, particularly Nigeria and work with the corporate community, industry leaders so that we can deploy the re-engineered learning methodology of www.ExcellenceinEduc­ation.org.uk program. We know that with these programs young Nigerians can equal or exceed our record-breaking achievement. The next generation of Africans have no choice but excel because there is a genius in everyone.”
