German Serial Killer Nurse Charged With 97 More Murders

German Serial Killer Nurse Charged With 97 More Murders



German nurse, Niels Hoegel, who allegedly killed his victims out of boredom has been charged with 97 murders, making him one of Europe’s deadliest serial killers.

Hoegel, who was already serving a life sentence after being charged in 2015 for murdering six patients, was charged with another 97 murders on Monday according to German prosecutors via a press release. He is accused of giving victims various non-prescribed drugs in an attempt to show off his resuscitation skills to colleagues and fight off boredom.

Niels Hoegel was previously jailed in 2015 after being convicted of killing six people, which led German authorities to investigate hundreds of deaths and exhume bodies of former patients in the clinics where he had worked. He is accused of killing 62 patients in a Delmenhorst clinic and another 35 patients in Oldenburg clinics.
 
According to Police, the final number of murders may never be known as some possible victims were cremated.
Police Arrest & Detain Former Minister, Oby Ezekwesili

Police Arrest & Detain Former Minister, Oby Ezekwesili


A former minister and convener of the BringBackOurGirls group, Oby Ezekwesili, was earlier today arrested and she’s being detained by the police in Abuja.

It is understood that her arrest is not unconnected to the activities of the group.

In a flurry of tweets on her Twitter handle, @obyezeks, the former Minister of Education, said she was arrested alongside some members of the BBOG group.

Reacting to the reported arrest, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), in a statement via its Twitter page, demanded the immediate release of those arrested.
SERAP tweeted, “The reported false imprisonment & detention of @obyezeks & members of @BBOG_Nigeria makes a mockery of @MBuhari’s claim that this govt is one of change that is governed by d rule of law. The authorities should immediately release them & allow them to freely exercise their rights.”
In an interview with newsmen, Ezekwesili narrated what led to the arrest and called on President Muhammadu Buhari to order the release of all the members of the group.
“Today we gathered to do our usual march, and the Nigerian police refused for us to leave the Unity Fountain (in Abuja),” she said.
“Some of our colleagues have already gone and they are going to be giving their press statement there.
“Those of us that they have locked in here, in particular, they have refused that I should move.
“They have built a human prison and have violated my fundamental right to freedom of movement and association and therefore I want it to be on record that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari has infringed the constitution by violating my fundamental right to freedom of movement and association and this cannot be allowed to happen in a democracy.
“If there is anyone there listening to this, they must tell President Muhammadu Buhari to instruct the IG of Nigerian police to let the officers who have imprisoned me in broad daylight, to let me go about my business.
“I am a law-abiding citizen of this country. I see no reason why my right should be violated. And so right now I will continue to insist that these officers allow me to move out of the Unity Fountain.”

Chief Olusegun Obasanjo Rejects Pres. Buhari’s 2019 Bid

Chief Olusegun Obasanjo Rejects Pres. Buhari’s 2019 Bid




On Tuesday, former President Olusegun Obasanjo released a 13-page statement in which he called on President Muhammadu Buhari to not seek re-election in 2019.

In the special press statement titled “The Wat Out: A Clarion Call for Coalition for Nigeria Movement”, Obasanjo said President Buhari has performed well below expectation and should honorably “dismount from the horse” to join the group of the country’s former leaders whose “experience, influence, wisdom and outreach can be deployed on the side line for the good of the country.”

The former President said that he feels disappointed by Buhari, whom he supported during the 2015 election over then incumbent and candidate of his former party, Goodluck Jonathan. Back in 2013, Mr Obasanjo had released an open letter titled “Before It Is Too Late” in which he spoke on the failings of the Jonathan administration. He argued that his decision to go against President Jonathan, at the time was the right one and was for the good of the nation and nothing personal.

“Even the horse rider then, with whom I maintain very cordial, happy and social relationship today has come to realise his mistakes and regretted it publicly and I admire his courage and forthrightness in this regard,” Obasanjo said.
“He has a role to play on the side line for the good of Nigeria, Africa and humanity and I will see him as a partner in playing such a role nationally and internationally, but not as a horse rider in Nigeria again.”

Obasanjo thanked the sitting President for the effort of his administration in fighting the Boko Haram insurgency and his fight against corruption, but he maintained that President Buhari has ultimately failed in other areas where he had thought he would be efficient. He admitted he knew Mr Buhari was weak in handling the economy, but he went ahead and voted for him because at the time “it was a matter of ‘any option but Jonathan’” and because he believed Buhari would appoint qualified Nigerians to help out in that area.
Speaking on the clashes between the herdsmen and farmers, Obasanjo berated President Buhari for allowing situation to get messy and added that the endorsement of the President by some governors to seek re-election barely 24 hours after 73 people who were killed by herdsmen in Benue State were given mass burial was “a sad symptom of insensitivity and callousness.”

The former President was excoriating on what he described as Mr Buhari’s clannishness, lack of understanding of the dynamics of politics, and his tendencies to pass the buck of his government’s inadequacies to the immediate past administration.

“But there are three other areas where President Buhari has come out more glaringly than most of us thought we knew about him.  One is nepotic deployment bordering on clannishness and inability to bring discipline to bear on errant members of his nepotic court.  This has grave consequences on performance of his government to the detriment of the nation.  It would appear that national interest was being sacrificed on the altar of nepotic interest.  What does one make of a case like that of Maina: collusion, condonation, ineptitude, incompetence, dereliction of responsibility or kinship and friendship on the part of those who should have taken visible and deterrent disciplinary action?  How many similar cases are buried, ignored or covered up and not yet in the glare of the media and the public?

“The second is his poor understanding of the dynamics of internal politics.  This has led to wittingly or unwittingly making the nation more divided and inequality has widened and become more pronounced.  It also has effect on general national security.

“The third is passing the buck.  For instance, blaming the Governor of the Central Bank for devaluation of the naira by 70% or so and blaming past governments for it, is to say the least, not accepting one’s own responsibility.  Let nobody deceive us, economy feeds on politics and because our politics is depressing, our economy is even more depressing today.  If things were good, President Buhari would not need to come in.  He was voted to fix things that were bad and not engage in the blame game.”

Mr Obasanjo wrote that neither President Buhari nor his party, the All Progressive Congress hold the solution to the country’s problems adding that Buhari was also not healthy enough to withstand the rigour of running a country like Nigeria. He called on the President to step down at the end of his first term with honour and dignity and attend to his health and shouldn’t listen to his “self-serving so-called advisers who would claim that they love him more than God loves him and that without him, there would be no Nigeria”.

“President Buhari needs a dignified and honorable dismount from the horse. He needs to have time to reflect, refurbish physically and recoup and after appropriate rest, once again, join the stock of Nigerian leaders whose experience, influence, wisdom and outreach can be deployed on the side line for the good of the country.  His place in history is already assured.  Without impaired health and strain of age, running the affairs of Nigeria is a 25/7 affair, not 24/7″ He added.

“I only appeal to brother Buhari to consider a deserved rest at this point in time and at this age.  I continue to wish him robust health to enjoy his retirement from active public service.  President Buhari does not necessarily need to heed my advice.  But whether or not he heeds it, Nigeria needs to move on and move forward,”
 
“I have had occasion in the past to say that the two main political parties – APC and PDP – were wobbling.  I must reiterate that nothing has happened to convince me otherwise.  If anything, I am reinforced in my conviction.  The recent show of PDP must give grave and great concern to lovers of Nigeria.”

“To claim, as has been credited to the chief kingmaker of PDP, that for procuring the Supreme Court judgement for his faction of the Party, he must dictate the tune all the way and this is indeed fraught with danger.

“If neither APC nor PDP is a worthy horse to ride to lead Nigeria at this crucial and critical time, what then do we do?  Remember Farooq Kperogi, an Associate Professor at the Kennesaw State University, Georgia, United States, calls it “a cruel Hobson’s choice; it’s like a choice between six and half a dozen, between evil and evil. Any selection or deflection would be a distinction without a difference. We cannot just sit down lamenting and wringing our hands desperately and hopelessly.”

Ruling out the PDP and the APC of being able to save the country, the former President called for a movement he termed Coalition of Nigeria, which he offered to be a part of, to wrest power from the present ruling class and lead the country into the path of rebirth.
“We can collectively save ourselves from the position we find ourselves.  It will not come through self-pity, fruitless complaint or protest but through constructive and positive engagement and collective action for the good of our nation and ourselves and our children and their children. We need moral re-armament and engaging togetherness of people of like-mind and goodwill to come solidly together to lift Nigeria up.  This is no time for trading blames or embarking on futile argument and neither should we accept untenable excuses for non-performance.”

“Let us accept that the present administration has done what it can do to the limit of its ability, aptitude and understanding. Let the administration and its political party platform agree with the rest of us that what they have done and what they are capable of doing is not good enough for us.  They have given as best as they have and as best as they can give.  Nigeria deserves and urgently needs better than what they have given or what we know they are capable of giving.  To ask them to give more will be unrealistic and will only sentence Nigeria to a prison term of four years if not destroy it beyond the possibility of an early recovery and substantial growth.”

“The development and modernization of our country and society must be anchored and sustained on dynamic Nigerian culture, enduring values and an enchanting Nigerian dream.  We must have abiding faith in our country and its role and place within the comity of nations.  Today, Nigeria needs all hands on deck.  All hands of men and women of goodwill must be on deck.  We need all hands to move our country forward.”

“We need a Coalition for Nigeria, CN. Such a Movement at this juncture needs not be a political party but one to which all well-meaning Nigerians can belong.  That Movement must be a coalition for democracy, good governance, social and economic well-being and progress.  Coalition to salvage and redeem our country.  You can count me with such a Movement.  Last time, we asked, prayed and worked for change and God granted our request.  This time, we must ask, pray and work for change with unity, security and progress. And God will again grant us.  Of course, nothing should stop such a Movement from satisfying conditions for fielding candidates for elections.  But if at any stage the Movement wishes to metamorphose into candidate-sponsoring Movement for elections, I will bow out of the Movement because I will continue to maintain my non-partisan position.  Coalition for Nigeria must have its headquarters in Abuja.”

“This Coalition for Nigeria will be a Movement that will drive Nigeria up and forward.  It must have a pride of place for all Nigerians, particularly for our youth and our women.  It is a coalition of hope for all Nigerians for speedy, quality and equal development, security, unity, prosperity and progress.  It is a coalition to banish poverty, insecurity and despair.  Our country must not be oblivious to concomitant danger around, outside and ahead.  Coalition for Nigeria must be a Movement to break new ground in building a united country, a socially-cohesive and moderately prosperous society with equity, equality of opportunity, justice and a dynamic and progressive economy that is self-reliant and takes active part in global division of labor and international decision-making.”

“The Movement must work out the path of development and the trajectory of development in speed, quality and equality in the short- medium- and long-term for Nigeria on the basis of sustainability, stability, predictability, credibility, security, cooperation and prosperity with diminishing inequality.  What is called for is love, commitment and interest in our country, not in self, friends and kinship alone but particularly love, compassion and interest in the poor, underprivileged and downtrodden.  It is our human duty and responsibility so to do.  Failure to do this will amount to a sin against God and a crime against humanity.”
Suspected Herdsmen Reportedly Set Olu Falae’s Farm On Fire

Suspected Herdsmen Reportedly Set Olu Falae’s Farm On Fire


Some men suspected to be Fulani herdsmen on Sunday evening reportedly raided a farm belonging to the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Chief Olu Falae, setting it on fire.

The farm, it was gathered, is located at Ilado Community in Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State.

Sources told newsmen that the hoodlums did not steal anything on the farm but they burnt down five hectares of the farm which was the oil palm plantation.

Confirming the incident when speaking to The Punch, the Chief Security Officer (CSO) to the former SGF, Captain Moshood Raji said he (Raji) was called by a policeman that was guiding the farm.

He said the incident happened around 6pm.
Raji said, “At about 6pm, I got a message from one of the police officers attached to the farm that the farm has been burnt down by some hoodlums.
“There was no worker on the farm when the incident occurred because it was a Sunday.
“We are on our way to the farm now to know the extent of the damage.
“We have informed the Commissioner of Police. About five hectares of the land were affected.
“The oil palm plantation was affected as well as some parts of the yam and cassava plantations.”
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr. Femi Joseph, said he was not aware of the incident.
“I am not aware of it as at now. The matter has not got to my table as I’m talking to you,” Joseph said.
In his reaction, Chief Falae said the herdsmen were deliberately attacking his farm for no reason, describing the act as malicious and wicked.
He said this was the third time they would be attacking his farm, saying they also did it in January 2017.
He said, “I don’t know why the herdsmen were attacking my farm; they did it last year, they did the same year before the last.
“That is how they burn it every year so that fresh grass can come out for their cattle to eat.
“They attack my oil palm cultivation; the mature oil palm trees that have been bearing fruits to make palm oil have been burnt down.
“This is a wicked act and malicious damage. This goes beyond what their cattle want to eat.
“Cattle don’t eat oil palm. This is a malicious attack.”

 Empress Njamah- I Feel Offended When Younger Men Woo Me

Empress Njamah- I Feel Offended When Younger Men Woo Me


Empress Njamah has revealed that she usually feels offended and doesn't like it whenever a younger man shows interest in her.

In a recent chat with Punchng, this actress said: “A lot of men in their twenties say they admire me and want to date me. I am sure most of them think I am really young.


Sometimes, I find it annoying because if they know my actual age, they wouldn’t come close or show interest in me. When people say I look like a lady in her twenties, I just smile. I am actually in my thirties.“
Abacha’s Loot - EFCC Launches Probe Over Missing $500 Million

Abacha’s Loot - EFCC Launches Probe Over Missing $500 Million


A debate has risen over the $500 million recovered from the late Gen. Sani Abacha’s family as report indicates that the money was diverted.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is said to be probing the location of the money which was recovered from the family of the late Head of State during ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.

The fund was sent back from accounts owned by the late general in foreign banks after hard negotiations by the Federal Government but indication have emerged that the $500 million was diverted.

According to The Nation, “Of the $500 million, about $250 million was released to the Office of National Security Adviser (ONSA) during the tenure of Col. Sambo Dasuki without appropriation. The balance of $250 million cannot be traced yet.”

The sum of $250 million was illegally withdrawn barely two months to the end of Jonathan’s administration in 2015.

Aside the controversial $500 million, another $550 million recovered from the Abacha family may have been lost to the United States.

According to Prof. Itse Sagay, Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), reported that, “Nigeria stands to lose another S550 million recovered from the Abacha family to the U.S., contrary to the earlier promise by the U.S. to return same to Nigeria.”

The Prof. disclosed that the amount represented a separate tranche from the earlier $480 million forfeited to the U.S. following a court judgment in August 2014.

He said that the stringent conditions for repatriation being given by the countries in which some of the nation’s stolen wealth was stashed contradicted the earlier promises made.

According to Sagay, the challenges include stringent conditions and other uncooperative attitude of the countries in possession of the stolen funds.

“Out of the Abacha loot for instance, Switzerland seized over $505.5 million between 2004 and 2006,” he said.

Court Sacks 21 Ibadan Kings Installed By Gov Ajimobi

Court Sacks 21 Ibadan Kings Installed By Gov Ajimobi




A High Court sitting in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, on Friday, January 19, nullified the installation of 21 kings by Governor Abiola Ajimobi.

The Punch reports that the Court, which was presided over by Justice Olajumoke Aiki, declared the review of the 1957 Olubadan Chieftaincy Declaration and other Related Chieftaincies in Ibadan land by the Justice Akintunde Boade Review Commission, which was set up by the Oyo State Government, as unconstitutional, illegal, null, void and of no effect.

 The review was recommended by a panel set up by the state government.
The commission had recommended, among others, the creation of several monarchs in Ibadan which led to the installation of 21 kings by the state Governor Abiola Ajimobi.
But the Osi Olubadan of Ibadan land, Rashidi Ladoja, challenged the composition and recommendations of the commission in court, joining Ajimobi as co-defendant.
In her ruling, Aiki held that wearing of beaded crowns was beyond the purview of sections 10, 12 and 25 of the Oyo State Chiefs Law, stating that Section 25 of the Chiefs Law could not be treated in isolation to the provisions of Parts Two and Three of the Chiefs Laws.

 The court also said provisions of Parts Two and Three of the Chiefs Laws, particularly sections 10, 12 and 25, did not give power to the governor to review the Olubadan chieftaincy declaration, while also restraining the government from accepting and implementing the reports of the commission.

Aside Ladoja, the Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji, also sued Ajimobi and 23 others, over their involvements in the crowning of 21 kings in Ibadan on August 27, 2017.

 Leaders Pay Tribute To Fallen Heroes, Urge Nigerians To Embrace Peace In Commemoration Of Armed Forces Remembrance Day

Leaders Pay Tribute To Fallen Heroes, Urge Nigerians To Embrace Peace In Commemoration Of Armed Forces Remembrance Day


Every 15th of January in Nigeria marks the annual event called Armed Forces Remembrance Day which is set aside to commemorate the fallen heroes that lost their lives in the First and Second World Wars and the Civil War of 1967-70.

This day marks the date of the military’s first misadventure into national politics. However, this day is better known as the day that celebrates the role of the Armed Forces in upholding the unity of the country.

Armed Forces Remembrance Day is not only celebrated at the Federal level but it cuts across every form of government in the country. Prayers are held for soldiers who died fighting for the country.

In celebrating this day, former President Ibrahim Babangida has urged Nigerians and governments at all levels to serve the country and help in resolving the recent disturbing incidents affecting the nation’s national security.

Babangida also called on the mass media to serve as national vanguards in tackling the present security challenges facing the country.

“As people we should inculcate our cultural values that promote good conduct, tolerance and peaceful coexistence.

“We should eschew hate speeches, discrimination and other vices that trigger senseless violence and bloodshed.

“We have witnessed so much bloodshed through communal clashes and conflicts that need urgent actions to stop them now.

Nigerians were urged to demonstrate appreciation of the courage of the gallant fallen heroes by appreciating their contribution and providing support for the welfare and upkeep of the families they left behind, especially their widows and children.

In a similar manner, former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has urged Nigerians to embrace peace and unity as a means of honouring the gallant efforts of the Nigerian military.

“I admire the bravery of members of our armed forces, and celebrate their hard efforts to keep us safe. My prayer on this day is to see a time soon when the guns and the armoured tanks lie idle because we have no more battles left to fight,” Atiku noted.

“When we all live in peace and unity and love, we not only enable steady development and progress in our great country, Nigeria, but we minimise the unnecessary pain, grief and loss of life among our beloved armed forces, who have bravely signed up to keep us all safe and secure. Our fallen heroes and their families are not the only ones who suffer.”

His Excellency President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR and Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo GCON celebrated this years Armed Forces Remembrance Day at the National Arcade, Eagles Square, Abuja.
