SERIOUSLY? Why Are Some Christians Behaving So Badly



It is common knowledge that Muslim women wear hijab due to their religious tenets. Their women are not allowed to dress in what will make their curves obvious. But we Christians have no such.
Now the Muslims in Osun State went to court to get an order allowing them to wear hijab to school and the Judge granted the order. What did my fellow Christians do? They asked their children to wear Choir Robes and White Garment church gown to school. In the name of a stupid competition...

Woman tortures five-year-old stepdaughter for bed-wetting



The police in Ogun State have arrested a hairdresser, Kudirat Oyediran, for allegedly inflicting injuries on her stepdaughter, Rachael Oyediran.
It was learnt that 32-year-old Kudirat allegedly tortured the five-year-old for bed-wetting and disobedience.
Kudirat and Rachael live in Okeore, Atan Ota, in the Ado-Odo Ota Local Government Area of the state.
The mother of one was apprehended after a neighbour reported the alleged torture to the police at the Onipanu division.
PUNCH Metro gathered that Rachael’s mother died five years ago when she was three months old.
She was said to have been under the care of the suspect, whom her father married a few years after.
The Abeokuta, Ogun State indigene, reportedly told the police that she beat Rachael for being “obstinate”, adding that she only used brooms to beat her.
She said, “She is my stepdaughter and I have been taking good care of her. But she is very stubborn. If I give an instruction, she won’t follow it. She is bed-wetting and I have cautioned her several times. She is also fond of stealing pieces of meat from the pot of stew. I only beat her with brooms; I don’t use any object on her. I promise not to beat her again.”
A police source told our correspondent that the victim had been handed over to her father, Dele, who was made to sign an undertaking that the girl would be properly taken care of thenceforth.
The source said, “On May 30, a Good Samaritan reported at the station that one Kudirat Oyediran of Okeore was in the habit of constantly assaulting her stepdaughter, Rachael. As a result, she sustained serious bruises on her back. The mother of the victim died three months after her birth. Her father married the suspect so she could take care of her. The woman has a six-month-old baby.
“The girl would have been transferred to a motherless home, but her father and some community elders pleaded that she should not be taken there. The father wrote an undertaking to ensure her proper upkeep before she was released to him.”
The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Muyiwa Adejobi, in a text message, confirmed the woman’s arrest, adding that the case would be charged to court.
He said, “The command has no tolerance for inhuman cases of such and will always fish out the culprits.”

A coalition of youth groups within the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has given leaders of the party seven days to resolve all pending issues relating to the ongoing crisis in the party or they would takeover.
Briefing journalists at the end of their meeting Tuesday, at the Wadata Plaza National Secretariat of the party, the chairman of the group, Aderemi Olusegun, said they were saddened by the “unabated internal wrangling” besetting the party.

Cops beat man to a coma for obstructing arrest



A 25-year-old man, Kabir Ahmed, has been admitted to the Federal Medical Centre in Yola, Adamawa State, after he was allegedly beaten into a coma by some policemen attached to the Doubeli division.
The policemen, who were said to be in mufti, had on May 16 at about 10am raided Zanranda Street in the Jimeta area of the state to arrest some suspected smokers.
PUNCH Metro learnt that the cops searched the people they met on the street and arrested one of them found with cannabis.
They reportedly wanted to apprehend others when Ahmed, who was in front of his house, cautioned the cops not to arrest “innocent” persons.
When they declined, he allegedly started arguing with them, leading to his arrest.
He was reportedly whisked away in a tricycle to the station, where he was tortured until he became unconscious.
An eyewitness, Awal Aminu, who spoke with our correspondent on the telephone, said Ahmed, a National Diploma holder in crime management, attempted to challenge “the excesses” of the cops.
He said, “The policemen came into the street in a Keke Napep (tricycle). The policemen confronted us and we asked them what we did. They said they came to search us. We asked them to identify themselves because they were in mufti, which they did. They found hemp on a man and arrested him.
“They wanted to arrest the rest of us saying we were at the place they found an exhibit. We were on it when Kabiru (Ahmed) came from his house and asked the policemen what our offence was. They dragged him into the Keke Napep and took him to the station.”
 A resident of the area, Mrs. Afusat Raji, said the policemen, after allegedly beating Ahmed to stupor, called his mother at about 12am that he had been rushed to the FMC.
She said, “His mother went to the station that afternoon to beg them; they did not listen. She went with a lawyer to secure his bail, but they refused. It was around 12am that the woman was called from the station that Kabiru was in the hospital. He is still in a critical condition.”
A human rights activist, Adamu Ibrahim, said Kabiru’s spinal cord was affected and lamented that the police authorities did not show any concern since he was admitted at the hospital.
He called on the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, to wade into the matter and bring the policemen to book.
However, the Adamawa State Police Command spokesperson, DSP Othman Abubakar, denied that Ahmed was tortured, saying he sustained injuries after falling into a ditch.
He said, “A distress call was received from a resident of the area that some hoodlums were taking hard drugs there. Our men responded and on arrival, the suspects took to their heels. The man in question was arrested for obstructing policemen from performing their lawful duty.
“He attempted to escape from the police and ran into a ditch. He is among those that our men went to arrest. I can’t say whether the policemen were in mufti or not.”

Policeman’s wife batters 10-year-old niece over N30



A 38-year-old trader, Mrs. Caroline Akanwa, has been arrested by the Area C Police Command, Lagos State, for allegedly battering her niece, Chioma Uneneme.

N1.16bn fraud: Dariye makes U-turn, dumps no-case submission



A former Governor of Plateau State, Joshua Dariye, on Tuesday rescinded his earlier decision to file a no-case submission after the prosecution closed its case in his ongoing trial before a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Gudu, Abuja.
It was the second time the former governor was changing his decision to suspend his defence over a plan to file his no-case submisison.
An accused person files a no-case submission after the prosecution closes its case to contend that that prosecution’s evidence is not cogent to warrant him opening his defence, and thus seeks an order striking out the charges against him or her.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is prosecuting Dariye, a senator, on charges of alleged diversion of Plateau State’s ecological fund estimated at N1.16bn while he was governor in the state.
Earlier in the previous proceedings when the prosecution announced the closure of its case on June 8, after calling 10 witnesses, Dariye’s lawyer, Garba Pwul (SAN), informed the court about his client’s readiness to conduct his defence.
‎‎But on June 10, he changed his mind when parties returned to court for him to open his defence by opting to file a no-case submission.
The judge had then fixed Tuesday for the hearing of the no-case submission.
But on Tuesday, Pwul told the court presided over by Justice Adebukola Banjoko that his client had changed his mind again and had dropped the plan to file a no-case submission.
He indicated that his client, who was Governor of Plateau State between 1999 and 2007, would open his defence promptly.
Pwul had earlier informed the judge of four witness summons he filed to compel four individuals to appear in court and testify for his client.
Justice Banjoko had endorsed the summons, which were to be served on the affected individuals.
Pwul then told the court that Dariye intended to call seven witnesses.
‎‎The judge on Tuesday adjourned till June 17 for Dariye to open his defence.

Speaking on allegations trailing my wife’s death – Jide Kosoko



Jide Kosoko1
Following the allegation leveled against Nollywood icon, Jide Kosoko that he should be investigated over the death of his third wife and fellow actress, Henrietta, the movie legend says ‘the time will come to speak,’ DAILY POST is reporting.
DAILY POST recalls that the daughter of Victor Omololu Olunloyo – a former governor of Oyo State, Kemi Olunloyo, whose public criticism of people apparently knows no bounds, had suggested that Kosoko should be investigated as he may have been using all his wives for ritual.
She noted that it was a rare coincidence for a man to lose three wives consecutively.
Ms Olunloyo had earlier said, “Actor Jide’s third wife just died.
“The light skin bleaching Nollywood actor. This makes it three wives dead.
“He is now technically a black widower.
“He should be investigated for ritualism and the occult world.
“Something I hear is very prevalent in Nollywood,” the journalist had said.
In an exclusive chat with DAILY POST, the bereaved movie star when asked how he was getting over the tragic loss, said, “I am getting on by God’s grace but I am not in the right frame to attend to those allegations now.
“I’m so sorry about that. The time will come for me to talk. I will definitely speak on my wife’s death. Not immediately please but I will,” Kosoko told our reporter.
DAILY POST took a step further to quiz some persons close to the family, pondering on the said allegation.
Speaking with a TV presenter, Ms Morayo, this newspaper gathered that the deceased was on her TV show few days before her death.
Morayo said, “Late Henrietta before her death was on our show. She was not really feeling too well but she was lively. She told me she needed to go the hospital for check up.”
On the news making the rounds that the deceased’s husband should be investigated over her death, Morayo said, “That is awkward. She was like a mother to me and her husband, like a father. He is not capable of doing such. I don’t believe that. It is Yoruba mentality, they just believe such coincidences (loosing three wives consecutively) are unheard of.
“It is very very wrong to think that,” she stressed.
“Mr Jide cannot just wake up one day and decide that he will kill his wives for rituals. No way. His wife was sick and of course death is inevitable.
“By the way, there was no fight between them for one to have thought her husband killed her because when I mentioned her name on the show, she insisted that I added her husband’s full name alongside her first name.
“All those allegations should be disregarded. I just think it was her time to go and be with her God. We will all die one day,” the presenter added.

86-year-old woman recounts ordeal with serial rapist in Lagos



badoo
An 86-year-old woman, Madam Belawu Jimoh, has narrated how she was raped to coma by a suspected serial rapist, popularly known as Badoo in Ikorodu area of Lagos State.
Badoo, who also allegedly raped and murdered a 27-year-old school teacher, Grace Jubreel, in her home in the presence of her 14-month-old baby in Ibeshe community in Ikorodu, was apprehended by the Rapid Response Squad, RRS, of the state Police Command, the Punch had reported.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Dolapo Badmos, who was said to have confirmed his arrest at the weekend, said the police had received several reports of rape committed by the suspect.
Badmos said, “Badoo, as he is fondly called, is a suspected serial rapist. All the reports we have gotten have been pointed towards him as the suspect.
“We launched a three-day manhunt on him and arrested him with the help of angry residents who almost lynched him before our intervention.
“He is in our custody and investigations are ongoing, after which he will be charged to court,” the PPRO added.
Speaking with newsmen on Monday, the octogenarian recalled how she was attacked by the serial rapist and murderer two weeks ago.
She said, “He waylaid me at my residence when I just came out of our public bathroom. He followed me into my room, covered my mouth with cloth and raped me mercilessly. I lost consciousness.
“I screamed but no one heard me,” Madam Jimoh said.
The victim, a resident of Oke Ota, Ibeshe area of Ikorodu, expressed happiness that her attacker had been apprehended.

Shocking! Jide Kosoko absent at late wife’s burial



Legendary Nollywood actor, Jide Kosoko whose wife, Henrietta Kosoko passed away on Monday, 6th June 2016 according to reports was absent at the burial of his late wife which took place over the weekend in Delta State.
Henrietta and Jide kosoko
Henrietta and Jide kosoko
The first leg of her burial was held in Lagos while the main burial took place in Abraka, her hometown.
Contrary to reports making rounds that Prince Jide Kosoko did not perform her marriage rite thus the demand for her corpse by her family members, it was gathered that it is the culture of the Urhobo people where she hailed from to bring their daughters home for burial except the family says otherwise.
According to an inside source who preferred anonymity, “The late Henrietta Kosoko came from a staunch Christian home. They are strong Roman Catholic believers and even have a Reverend Father among them. We were received warmly especially by the Rev father and Aunty Rita. Aside confirming her corpse nobody touched nor brought her corpse out of the casket.
“Consequently, her corpse was taken away from Lagos and moved to her hometown in Abraka, Delta state. To avoid trouble, and then the veteran actor decided to stay away”.
“Jide Kosoko did not attend his late wife’s main burial in Delta. They have children together and it would have been wise the family allow him pay whatever they believe he did not pay when she was alive.’’

NSCDC arrests four for selling meat of dead animals



selling meat
The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Borno State command, said on Tuesday that it had taken into custody four butchers for allegedly selling the meat of dead animals to residents of Maiduguri.
State Commandant of Corps, Ibrahim Abdullahi, told newsmen that the suspects, who had confessed to committing the crime, were arrested at the Murtala Square area in the state capital.
He said, “The culprits have been selling dead livestock to innocent unsuspecting people.
“They normally go around and pick dead animals from the outskirt of the town and sell same to the public.
“Some of these animals died from tuberculosis, bacterial pneumonia or even brucellosis, which can pose dangerous health challenges when consumed.
“Even if you have the license to operate in an abattoir, the veterinary doctors must ascertain that the animals are safe for human consumption.
Abdullahi disclosed that the chairman of the butchers association in the State said none of the culprits was a registered member of his association.
He, therefore, advised residents to be watchful and wary of patronizing road side meat sellers.

Nigerian State Governors And The Sin Of Wages By Bayo Oluwasanmi



Everyone knows the State governments are bankrupt and have been for many years. Given their financial conditions coupled with the governors' working fever pitch to exacerbate the situation, the State governments are facing a completely impossible and irremediable situation.
I'm not trying to scare anyone, I'm not a gloom-and-doomer. I'm also going to give you solutions to the purely financial problems – albeit with some good news and bad news. The good news is, there actually are solutions. The bad news is that there is a zero chance that my solutions are put into effect. The problems are one hundred per cent caused by the governors, not by the recession, not by dwindling oil revenues, and not by slashed allocation from Abuja. There is destruction, violence, poverty, hunger, anger, disease, killings, kidnappings, abductions, and insecurity all over the States. The law has become paralyzed. There is no justice in the courts. The wicked far outnumber the righteous.
I'm not a fan of the former Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzo Kalu. But I believe he spoke the minds and conviction of a majority of Nigerians about the prodigality and profligacy of state governors. He attributed the inability of State governors to pay workers' salaries to what he described as propensity to squander public funds on personal luxury.
Speaking to State House correspondents in May while leading a delegation of investors in the power sector to a meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, he said some governors claim as much as N35 million as traveling allowance on one trip. “These governors have enough funds to work for their people because if you check, the money drawn as security votes is excessive. They should stop that,” says Kalu. “Unless they stop drawing security votes,” Kalu warns, “they will not have enough funds to work with and most of them are living in absolute luxury. So it is impossible to continue living in this manner,” says Kalu. “Most of the governors,” Kalu reveals, “are even living in Abuja now. They don't live in their States. Honestly, if you look at the books very well, for a trip they make, they will take a traveling allowance of N35 million,” continues Kalu. “What are you going to do with that?” queries Kalu. “So, how are we going to progress? Asks Kalu. “Let them sit down and do the job they are elected for,” says Kalu.
The governors of these bankrupt States would want Nigerians to believe their States are broke. In a statewide broadcast, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State said, “I want to thank you for your patience, endurance so far in the face of this strike and our financial challenges … What I don't have (money), I can't give. Ekiti State is broke. His Ondo State counterpart, Governor Olusegun Mimiko addressing protesting workers over the nonpayment of salaries for months, he said: “So, we can no longer pay salaries, even when they are due.... buckle up for a financial crash, as the State is broke,” Mimiko tells the disgruntled, hungry, and angry workers.
The States are broke because of the astronomical salaries, security votes, benefits, and the illegal unrestricted access of the governors to plunder the treasury. Effective July 1, 2009, the Remuneration Package for Political, Public, and Judicial office holders prepared by the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC), a State governor earns an annual salary of N11,540,896. The RMAFC package does not set a limit to the amount of estacode (allowance in foreign currencies for foreign trips) governors can take from State coffers. It also fails to specify the amount to be collected as Duty Tour Allowance for local trips which could be as high as N35 million on one trip. The provisions of the regulations simply said the estacode and Duty Tour Allowance would be provided upon request by governors. The States also bear the medical expenses of  governors. Any governor who successfully completes his tenure receives a N6,671,115 severance gratuity.
Another way the governors deplete State funds is by receiving double money from government. Twenty one governors receive double money from government. Former governors who are senators are receiving pension payments from their State governments and are also drawing salaries from public purse as serving senators. The former governors now senators are: Bukola Abiku Mesujamba Saraki (Kwara), Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso (Kano), Kabiru Gaya (Kano), Godswill Akpabio (Akwa Ibom), Theodore Orji (Abia), Abdullahi Adamu (Nasarawa), Sam Egwu (Ebonyi), Shaaba Lafiagi (Kwara), Joshua Dariye( Plateau), Jonah Jang (Plateau), Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko (Sokoto), Ahmed Sani Yarima ( Zamfara), Danjuma Goje (Gombe), Bukar Abba Ibrahim (Yobe), Adamu Aliero (Kebbi), George Akume (Benue), and Isiaka Adeleke (Osun).
The non-payment of salaries is taking a high toll on workers. In Igede-Ekiti, Ekiti State, a high school teacher who had not been paid for months stole a pot of amala (yam flour meal) from his neighbor in order to feed his two sons. In Ibadan, Oyo State, Nasiru Lukman, a teacher at Saint Luke's Grammar School, Molete, slumped while teaching in the classroom because of hunger. The vice principal of the same school, Emmanuel Olajide, reportedly died as a result of hunger “apparently due to non-payment of four months salary by the State government.” In Akure, Ondo State, a Director General of a State agency had to borrow N500 to buy food for his family. In Nasarawa State, all the medical doctors are on strike for non-payment of salaries. Doctors at Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) have gone on strike. Same story in other States.
The situation should not be allowed to continue. It is time for the federal government to step in and put delinquent States into receivership. Receivership means a receiver appointed by the federal government, preferably an accountant who is trusted, regarded, and of high integrity, to oversee the finances of the delinquent State. The appointment of a receiver is an equitable remedy that allows the federal government take over the financial aspect of governance of State government in order to protect the livelihood and welfare of State workers. By appointing a receiver, the federal government signals to the prodigal governors that it means business to restore the financial health of the State. It means the federal government has crossed the line from “talks” into “action” and ban the governors from dipping their dirty hands into the treasury. For the governors, it means loosing control of the treasury. 
The neutral status of the receiver and credibility will facilitate the needed reforms. The receiver will prioritize the allocation and spending of funds on programs and projects in the State. The receiver will conduct an analysis of the financial management currently practiced by the governors as to how and why they can't pay workers and put a new financial management in place. For example, the receiver will ensure the bail out money for payment of salaries of workers is not diverted into the pockets of the governors. The receiver will prefer to use State funds for badly needed programs instead of building airports that have no value for the citizens of the State. The receiver will plug all financial leakages, slash governors' salaries, freeze security votes of the governors and stop them from collecting other frivolous and looting-laden allowances and other financial malpractices that robbed workers of the salaries. 
There must be an end to the sufferings and nightmares of State workers – they deserve better!

Sheriff seizes PDP hqtrs as Makarfi writes INEC



Sheriff seizes PDP hqtrs as Makarfi writes INEC
I’m in charge till 2018, says ex-Borno governor
Caretaker chair: I’m authentic leader
AFTER a short break, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders returned yesterday to their bitter struggle for the party’s control.
Ousted National Chairman Ali Modu Sheriff took over the secretariat in Abuja, proclaiming himself the authentic leader and dismissing the Ahmed Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee as an illegal body.
But the Makarfi camp wrote to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), demanding to be recognised as the authentic leadership of the party.
INEC was yet to take a decision on the PDP crisis last night.
It was gathered that the electoral commission was awaiting the decision of the court on all pending issues.
Sheriff yesterday staged a dramatic return to the party’s national secretariat.
With Sheriff were erstwhile National Secretary Prof. Wale Oladipo, ousted National Auditor Adewole Adeyanju and a former presidential aide, Ahmed Gulak. There was a small crowd of supporters.
An initial attempt by the party chiefs to enter the building as early as 9a.m. was blocked by policemen manning the gate – apparently on the orders of the Ahmed Makarfi-led caretaker committee.
Undeterred, Sheriff went to confer with Inspector General of Police Solomon Arase, at the Force Headquarters and got permission to be allowed into the building.
On arrival at the secretariat, Sheriff said his tenure as chairman remained valid till December 2018. He dismissed the caretaker committee as an illegal body.
Said he: “After due consultations with serious-minded stakeholders of the party and my lawyers, against the background that I have remained committed to lawful procedures, I have come, fully armed with all the necessary court orders, to resume as national chairman, as directed by a court of competent jurisdiction.
“As we settle down to move the party forward, we wish to call on all party members within and outside the country to come around so that we can together reposition the PDP for future challenges.
“We have served the necessary court orders on the Independent National Electoral Commission, which is the impartial arbiter in matters like this; the police as custodians of the law and we will make same available to you gentlemen of the press, so that you can make informed analysis of the issues involved. We hereby seek your own cooperation as we continue the task of re-engineering the PDP.
“I wish to use this opportunity to thank all those who stood on the side of the truth and the law, and wish to place on record that never again shall the PDP return to wallow in lawlessness and impunity.”
Last week, key party organs, including the governors, Board of Trustees (BoT) and National Assembly caucus, handed over the party’s affairs to the caretaker committee.
But Sheriff said the caretaker committee was alien to the PDP’s constitution and that if there was any need for setting up such a committee, he, as chairman, ought to have presided over the exercise.
“Against this backdrop, I hereby declare as null, void and of no consequence whatsoever, any action taken by any person or group of persons, except by my leadership which is recognised by law,” he declared.
He called on prospective aspirants for the upcoming governorship election in Edo State to obtain their nomination forms for N10 million as against the N16 million fixed by the caretaker committee.
“Any aspirant who obtains nomination form from the caretaker committee would have themselves to blame because the only National Working Committee recognised by law is the one presided over by me,” Sheriff said, adding:
“I therefore call on everyone to shun all acts that will tend to portray the party as being lawless. We must learn to obey our laws first before we can hope to provide the desired leadership.”
The former Borno State Governor accused the party of promoting illegalities and impunity – in disobedience to court orders. He described the caretaker committee as one of such cases of impunity.
According to him, he stayed away from the party in deference to a court order restraining him from parading himself as chairman. The said order  lapsed after 14 days, Sheriff said, adding:
“I have all the while kept away from the office in strict compliance with the ex parte order of the Port Harcourt Federal High Court, which lapsed on the 9th of June and not because I sanction the illegalities being committed by some few members of our party.”
Makarfi’s committee writes INEC to demand recognition
The Ahmed Makarfi committee wrote INEC Chairman Prof. Mahmood Yakubu  last week.
The committee based its request on the outcome of the National Convention of the PDP in Port Harcourt and the decision of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the party.
In the letter, the caretaker committee said it was put in place at the National Convention, which was supervised by INEC officials.
It also asked INEC to deal with it henceforth on any issue relating to the party.
A source, who spoke in confidence, said the Caretaker Committee based its letter on the mandate given to it by the National Convention in line with Section 33(5) of the PDP Constitution.
The section says: “The National Convention shall have and exercise authority to (a) formulate policies and programmes of the party; (b) elect or remove the national officers of the party; (c) elect the presidential candidate of the party; (d) demand and receive reports from the National Executive Committee and from any other committees or organs of the party and take appropriate action on such reports; (e) appoint such committees as it may deem necessary, desirable or expedient and assign to them such powers and functions as it may deem fit.”
The source added: “If you read this section very well, the National Convention is empowered to raise the Caretaker Committee.
“In fact, Section 31(5)(g) mandates the Board of Trustees to ‘offer advice on party matters to the National Executive Committee of the party’.
“It was on these constitutional premises that the Caretaker Committee approached INEC for recognition. As a matter of fact, INEC supervised our National Convention.”
A highly-placed source in INEC confirmed the receipt of the letter.
He said: “We have received a letter from Makarfi’s committee seeking recognition.
“We have refrained from replying the letter because there are many cases in court on the crisis in the party with INEC joined in some matters.
“We are therefore yet to take a decision to avoid committing any act of subjudice. We are yet to issue a letter of recognition to the Caretaker Committee.
“I think we may  go by the pronouncement of the court on this crisis.”
Asked when the INEC management will meet, the source added: “At the appropriate time.”
