Eric Many Slams Fresh N267m Lawsuit On Runtown

Eric Many Slams Fresh N267m Lawsuit On Runtown

The on-going legal battle between Eric Many Records and its signed act, Runtown, has assumed a different dimension as the former has said that it has filed a fresh lawsuit against the latter due to the monies owed.
According to a statement issued on Friday, May 25, by the label’s general manager, Johnson Adumike, the initial injunction filed against Runtown was only for the “unapproved collaboration” he took part in.
The statement read: “As you are aware, lately we have been in court with Runtown over copyrights issues with regards to two collabo videos he made without our prior approval.”
“Truly, the much-publicized legal action at the Federal High Court in Lagos was, contrary to what many believe, not on the entire contract we signed with Runtown. It was only on the unapproved collabo videos and we claimed general damages of about N65 Million for the copyright infringement.”
 The label’s GM further said that the singer is not free from Eric Many as he has led the public to believe, adding that the name ‘Runtown’ belongs to the label as it has been licensed to Eric Many.
“We had thought that Runtown would see reason to retrace his steps on our contract following the ‘warning case’ on copyright infringement,” the statement read.
“This was not to be as he took to the social media, especially Twitter, dishing out insults on our Chairman, Prince Okwudili Umenyiora, boasting that he was no longer with Eric Many.
“His elder brother joined on Instagram boasting that his company ‘JSparrowMedia’ is now the person booking Runtown’s shows and no longer Eric Many.
“Under our contract, the professional name ‘Runtown’ and other names are licensed to Eric Many. Yet Runtown went to Trademarks Registry in Abuja and has been working to take the names from us.
“These and many other issues thrown up by the copyrights suit confirmed to us that indeed Runtown had walked out on us. We therefore decided to sue him for comprehensive breach of contract, to the sum of N266,694,755.”
“While our contract is supposed to fall due for expiration on 22nd June 2018, Eric Many now has an outstanding balance of about N266,694,755.08 to recoup on our investment and expenses on Runtown’s career.
“He is also yet to deliver an album which the contract requires him to deliver to us during the contract period.
“The contract spells out the procedure for the production of the album. Runtown is yet to initiate the procedure, whilst he focuses on Abuja Trademarks Registry scheming on how to make us lose grip of his professional name.”
Eric Many said it has withdrawn the case against Runtown at the federal high court, Lagos, following the advice of its legal team.
It said: “Last Wednesday, 23rd May 2018, following the advice of our lawyers, we withdrew our case at the federal high court on the collabos to have more time and focus to pursue the case of breach of contract.”
“Our lawyers had advised that since the breach of contract and recovery of our outstanding sum of N266,694,755.08 is a bigger picture, it would be more reasonable to drop the copyright case and focus our energy on the contract case.
“We accepted this advice and gave a go-ahead for the Lagos case to be withdrawn.”
 Meanwhile, Runtown is yet to respond to the fresh lawsuit.

Murder Suspects Implicate Saraki & Gov.Ahmed In Kwara Indigenes' Massacre

Murder Suspects Implicate Saraki & Gov.Ahmed In Kwara Indigenes' Massacre

The murder suspects arrested by the Kwara State Police Command in Ilorin have named the Senate President, Mr. Bukola Saraki and Kwara State governor, Mr. Abdulfattah Ahmed, as two of the men who ordered them to kill many Kwara State indigenes in Nigeria and abroad, says Sahara Reporters.

The suspects, who were paraded last week and have been transferred to Abuja for further investigation, mentioned the Senate President and Mr. Ahmed in the confessional statements made to the Police, the news outlet learned.

Read details as published by the news outlet below:

According to the statements made to the Police, the suspects said they have been on the payroll of the Kwara State Government and Mandate Office of Mr. Saraki.
The leader of the killer squad, the son of Salihu Woru the self-appointed spokesman of Magajis in Ilorin Emirate, is placed on salary Grade Level 16, while his colleagues are on Levels 10 to 15.
The suspects, SaharaReporters gathered, also admitted that they were being paid from the Office of the Senate President. Mr. Saraki, the suspects told the Police, gave them Toyota Corolla cars a few months ago as a way of securing the loyalty ahead of the 2019 elections. On the list of people marked for execution before the election, they said, are two men, both named Mustapha; Kayode Oyin, Yinka Aluko, Baba Rex, and one Ogunlowo.
A Police source told SaharaReporters that bank statements retrieved from the suspects indicated that they received money on a monthly basis from Mr. Saraki and the Kwara State government. This, added the source, has ensured that most of them have healthy bank balances running into millions of naira.
Following their confession, the Senate President and Mr. Ahmed attempted to pressure the Kwara State Police Commissioner, Mr. Aminu Pai Saleh, using Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), Mr. Jimoh Mumini, who is said to be very corrupt.
Mr. Pai Saleh was said to have been offered money, which he rejected. Mr. Mumini has been critical of the transfer of the suspects to Abuja, saying that the state government has successfully prosecuted cultists and killers at the State High Court under the penal code.
The Senate President and Mr. Ahmed may soon be invited by the Police. Both men have accused the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, of planning to frame them for murder.
Mikel Arteta ‘Agrees Deal’ To Become New Arsenal Manager

Mikel Arteta ‘Agrees Deal’ To Become New Arsenal Manager

A report is currently making the rounds on the internet that Mikel Arteta has agreed in principle to replace Arsene Wenger and become the new manager at Arsenal.
The Mirror quoted the report as saying that Arsenal are set to unveil Arteta as their new manager after he reached an agreement to succeed Wenger.

Arteta, who spent five years at the Emirates as a player, emerged as the top candidate to replace Wenger after Massimiliano Allegri reiterated his commitment to Juventus.

While no contract has yet been signed, the announcement of Arteta’s return to the Emirates Stadium will be made in the coming days.

The Spaniard is currently assistant coach to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and played a huge part in guiding them to their record-shattering Premier League title success this season.

It is believed that Arteta is highly regarded by Gunners chief executive Ivan Gazidis, who believes a younger coach will slot into a modern European football structure, complemented by head of recruitment Sven Mislintat and new head of football relations Raul Sanllehi.

Goal reports that he has agreed a deal in principle to become the next manager of Arsenal, with the announcement of his return set to be made in the coming days.

Female Suicide Bombers Die In Failed Borno Mosque Attack

Female Suicide Bombers Die In Failed Borno Mosque Attack

Two female suicide bombers have reportedly killed themselves in the early hours of Wednesday morning while attempting to attack a mosque in Borno State, North-east Nigeria.

Channels TV reports that the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Damian Chukwu, confirmed this in a statement personally signed by him.

In the statement, the CP said the attackers tried to gain entry into the Alhaji Bunu Mosque during the morning prayers in Jiddari Polo general area on the outskirts of Maiduguri, the state capital.

Chukwu added that the bombers who were between the ages of 13 and 16 years were, however, prevented by the policemen on patrol and unarmed vigilante men also praying in the same mosque.
“In the ensuing stampede, both bombers ran into an uncompleted building in the neighbourhoods, collided and simultaneously exploded, killing only themselves,” he said.

The police commissioner affirmed that no other casualty was recorded in the incident.

He noted that normalcy has been restored in the area and the remains of the girls have been evacuated.

Chukwu also said the police and the EOD team deployed have sanitised and rendered the area safe.
 Trump Withdraws US From Iran Nuclear Deal

Trump Withdraws US From Iran Nuclear Deal

Reactions have trailed US President Donald Trump’s announcement that he will withdraw the United States from an Obama-era nuclear agreement with Iran.

Calling it “decaying and rotten”, Trump had said the deal was “an embarrassment” to him “as a citizen”.
Speaking in contrary to advice from European allies, he said he would reimpose economic sanctions that were waived when the deal was signed in 2015.
In response, Iran said it was preparing to restart uranium enrichment, key for making both nuclear energy and weapons.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said: 

“The US has announced that it doesn’t respect its commitments.
“I have ordered the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran to be ready for action if needed, so that if necessary we can resume our enrichment on an industrial level without any limitations.”

He said he would “wait a few weeks” to speak to allies and the other signatories to the nuclear deal first. 

“If we achieve the deal’s goals in cooperation with other members of the deal, it will remain in place,” he said. 

But Saudi Arabia says it “supports and welcomes” President Trump’s decision to pull the US out of the Iran deal, and backs his plan to reinstate sanctions on the regime.

Saudi Arabia, in a statement, also said:

“The Kingdom reaffirms its support of the strategy previously announced by President Trump towards Iran, and hopes the international community will take a firm and unified stance against the Iranian regime, and its destabilizing aggression in the region, its support to terrorist groups, particularly Hizbollah and the Houthis militias, and its support of the Assad regime—who has committed heinous crimes against its people that led to the death of more than half a million civilians, including through the use of chemical weapons.”

Nigerian Customs Intercepts Containers Load Of Tramadol

Nigerian Customs Intercepts Containers Load Of Tramadol

The Tincan Island Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has intercepted containers load of tramadol tablet allegedly smuggled into the country from Indian.

It is understood that a suspect was also detained in connection with importation of 40 and 20 feet containers loaded with Tramadol tablets.

The controller of the Command, Musa Abdullah, who spoke on Tuesday, said that the seizure came against the backdrop of the ban on codeine syrup by the federal government.
It was gathered that the container was intercepted by officers of the command after there were attempts to smuggle them out of the seaport.
“Despite efforts to discourage importation of illicit drugs, some unrepentant fellows still engage in such misdemeanour,” Mr Abdullah said.
“One by 40 and 2 by 20 containers of Tramadol Hydrochloride 225mg which were declared electrical static converters and ciprofloxacin. We are collaborating with NAFDAC and NDLEA on this seizure.”
Tramadol, an opioid analgesic, is usually prescribed to treat moderate to moderately severe pain and is considered a safer alternative to other narcotic analgesics like hydrocodone, and methadone.

It is among the controlled drugs abused by some youths across the country causing unhealthy addiction and adverse side effects. It is believed to be fast selling and being shipped into the country through channels suspected to be unlawful.
Codeine Ban: NAFDAC To Sanction Emzor & 2 Others

Codeine Ban: NAFDAC To Sanction Emzor & 2 Others

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), has wielded the big stick on three pharmaceutical firms, Emzor Pharmaceuticals Ind. Ltd., Peace Standard Pharmaceutical Limited and Bioraj Pharmaceutical Limited that were implicated in the codeine syrup scandal following the BBC documentary.

Last week, the federal government of Nigeria had announced a ban on the production and import of cough syrup containing codeine.
This was after a BBC documentary on abuse of codeine-based cough syrups, especially in northern part of Nigeria.
The three companies listed above were shut by NAFDAC after their indictment in the BBC documentary.

Speaking on this in a statement, the NFDAC Director General, Prof Mojisola Adeyeye, said the decision was taken following findings from investigations and inspections at the companies.

“Due to insufficient evidence gathered and apparent resistance to provide needed documents during an inspection on May 2, 2018, at the respective companies in Ilorin and Lagos, respectively, it has become necessary to shut down all product lines of the three companies,” Prof. Adeyeye said in a statement on Monday.
She added: “The respective companies in Ilorin and Lagos, Peace Standard Pharmaceutical Limited. Plots 3 & 8, Adewole Industrial Estate, Lubcon Avenue, Ilorin, Kwara State; Bioraj Pharmaceutical Limited. No 405 Kaima Road, Ilorin, Kwara State and Emzor Pharmaceuticals Ind. Ltd., Ajao Estate, Lagos.”
According to her, this is to allow for a full and comprehensive investigation.  The three companies therefore remain closed.

She noted however that, the reopening of the manufacturing companies will depend on the level of cooperation that is shown during the comprehensive investigation.
“The reopening of the manufacturing companies will depend on the level of cooperation that is shown during the comprehensive investigation,’’ the statement said.
Buhari Off To London For His Third Medical Trip

Buhari Off To London For His Third Medical Trip

President Muhammdu Buhari will travel to London on another medical trip today (May 8), some eight months after returning from the last one and it is expected to last for four days, says the presidency.

The Presidency said yesterday that the President will honour an appointment having been told to return for a “meeting with his doctor.”

A statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and publicity Garba Shehu, said in the course of the technical stop-over for aircraft maintenance in London on his way back from Washington DC last week, the President had a meeting with his doctor.

He was requested to return for a meeting which he agreed to do.
He is expected back on Saturday and “on his return, the President’s two-day state visit to Jigawa (State), which was postponed because of the All Progressives Congress, APC’s Ward Congresses, will now take place on Monday and Tuesday..”

This is Buhari’s third trip to London since the start of last year. The first medical trip, in February 2017, lasted 50 days while he was away for over 100 days for the second between May and August. 

At the time, Buhari left the door open to further trips to seek further treatment.
This is also his fourth medical trip since taking office: in June 2016, he visited London over an ear infection.
“They’ve Been Beating Me In Kirikiri”- Evans

“They’ve Been Beating Me In Kirikiri”- Evans

Suspected kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, better known as Evans, broke down in tears on Monday before the Lagos State High Court in Igbosere where he was produced for arraignment on fresh two charges of kidnapping.

After initially refusing to come down from the prison van in protest, he was eventually brought into the courtroom by warders on the order of Justice Adedayo Akintoye.
When the judge acknowledged him, he said: “I have an explanation to make. Since I have been in the maximum prison, they have been maltreating me; no visit, they don’t feed me well, I have an eye problem and I cannot see afar.”
According to him, he was kept in solitary confinement and was denied access to his visitors.
But he was countered by one of the prison officials from Kirikiri Maximum Prison, who maintained that Evans was being given the same treatment as other inmates.
“We have been treating him very well; he is well fed and people have been visiting him. A doctor has been checking him; the doctor came to check him yesterday (Sunday) and even this morning before coming to court, because he was saying he can’t be in court, that he is not feeling fine.
“But when the doctor checked him yesterday (Sunday) and this morning, the doctor said he was healthy and that he saw no reason why he couldn’t be in court,” the official said.
Reacting to this, the trial judge asked the prison official to treat him well, emphasising that Evans had not been convicted. 

The judge stood down the case but as soon as he rose, Evans broke down in tears, saying: “What have I done to you people? They have been beating me; no good food; I have been locked up in one place since last year; why are they taking my case personally? Why do you people want to kill me.”
Atiku Donate N10m To Bomb Blast Victims

Atiku Donate N10m To Bomb Blast Victims

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on Monday visited victims of the Mubi suicide attack receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Yola, where he donated N10 million to the hospital Paupers’ Fund.

Abubakar told newsmen after he was conducted round the hospital wards to console the victims that he was satisfied with the hospital’s effort in the treatment of the patients as well as their response.

The twin bomb blasts occurred a week ago, killing scores of people and injuring many others.
The first blast was said to have occurred at the mosque located in the market, killing all members of the congregation before the second one destroyed another part of the market.

Atiku applauded the commitment of the management of the hospital and the committee it set up to manage the Paupers’ Fund meant for the treatment of underprivileged persons.

“I once donated N10 million to the fund and decided to make another donation of N10 million today because I am quite satisfied with the way the fund is being managed.

“Patients that cannot afford to get medical treatment can benefit from the fund.”

Abubakar underscored the need to recruit more security personnel, especially policemen, to boost internal security.

“Happily, I have heard an announcement that more policemen are being recruited though not sufficient.

“There is also the need to look into the training of security personnel so that they can confront the current challenges.”
Also speaking, the Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Prof. Muhammad Auwal, thanked the former vice president for his support to the hospital.

“He is the major financier of our Paupers’ Fund and I want to put it on record that the fund, since inception, had financed the treatment of about 300 patients, including those with major surgeries.
“The management of the hospital has no access to the fund and there is no exchange of money at all; we give the service and the fund pays directly into our TSA,” Auwal said.
