As soon as he got information that some his detained agents had confessed that they assisted him to buy properties in Lagos and Abuja he issued a statement to the effect that he owns the properties legitimately.

The Polish waitress has pleaded not guilty to murdering the Hungarian at South Quay, Arklow.
Paul Quinn testified that he was called to the quay around 6.15 that morning, where he met Ms Herda.
“She was soaking wet, distraught, cold and shivery,” he recalled. “There was white foam coming from her mouth.”
He said that he and his colleague treated her for hypothermia before taking her to hospital in Loughlinstown.
He said he tried to talk to her in the back of the ambulance during the 45-minute journey.
“She would repeat the name, Csaba. She was concerned,” he said. “Csaba was the passenger in the car.”
He was asked if she mentioned who was driving.
“Marta said she was driving,” he replied.
Mr Quinn said that she kept mentioning that Csaba ‘shouldn’t have been there’. He became concerned that there might have been an assault so he questioned her.
