Wow! Young Nigerian girl scored A1 in all WAEC subjects and gets scholarship up to Ph.D level..photo

Beautiful Miss Faizal Abu bakar Sani, 17, a former student of Olumawu School, Abuja, is a focused young girl. When she was writing her West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination, few months ago, little did she know that the examination would earn her a scholarship to study any course of her choice in any university in the world of her choosing.
As fortune smiles on her, Faizal’s scholarship as stated by Kano State Government, where she hails from, will know no bounds, as it covers university education in any foreign country to whatever level she wants.

Faizal, who was celebrated by her alma-mater, Olumawu School, Abuja; had nine A1 in the May/June 2016 West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE). She had A1 in English Language, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Computer Studies, Civic Education and Marketing. The result was adjudged by her school and Kano State government as the best ever in the state.

Famous universities
Faizal who spoke with Vanguard said: "I will like to study Medicine in any of the famous universities abroad. Meanwhile, I have been offered admission by at least seven universities in the United Kingdom and one university in Egypt, to study medicine.’’

On her reading habit, Faizal said: "I have no specific study hour because most times I study until I get tired and often fall asleep.”

She added that, “My mother contributed greatly to my academic success, because she encourages and grooms me. My father is a businessman who paid my school fees.’’

On the early marriage in the north, as opposed to education for some girls, Faizal mum said:
"I do not have a problem with early marriage if the girl is already matured. The important thing is that whoever is getting married should be focused.”

She continued, "Even though I got married at an early age, I knew where I wanted to be and education was my primary focus. I achieved a lot in education. I might not have been an A1 student like her (my daughter), but I was good in many courses in school.”

Nollywood actor, Kalu Ikeagwu releases statement on his arrest by the Nigerian Police for robbery



Image result for recent images of Kalu Ikeagwu
Yesterday, news broke that actor Kalu Ikeagwu was arrested by the police following a robbery and homicide case. He has released a statement stating what exactly happened. Read that below
Just to clear the air, I have this to say. I was literally abducted at gunpoint by earring wearing men purported to be policemen (they were five) in an unmarked Hiace bus with civilian number plates and fake identity cards. They first claimed to be working on an abduction Abuja case which changed to a robbery case, all while in transit.
 Even on getting to the police station I was not allowed to go in to the premises but was held outside . I repeatedly asked to go into the station where I'd feel safer to ask whatever questions that were burning in my mind regarding my traumatic experience. It did not happen. Instead they told me a phone used for a kidnap was being sought for,later the story changed to robbery then back to kidnap. 

As I write this piece I have not written any police statement in any police station which strikes me as very odd. I'm still wondering why I was molested and kidnapped just because a purported phone no was supposedly tracked to phone. Why would they have to harass me when they already had details of the buyer and seller of the phone? In a legitimate situation,the seller of the stolen phone should be the key witness in this investigation, but in this case the police are till now very reluctant to meet the seller.
I know there are mysteries I need to unravel in this case and I will try to get answers to them. It's so pathetic that one can get bad publicity from Nigerian media just because they're so much in a hurry to copy that they forget the importance of confirmation from all the parties involved. Publishing a story based solely on a neighbour's account isn't true journalism, that's pure gossip and slander.
We need real facts from the media and we need protection from the police and not molestation.

Donald Trump vows to hit Hillary Clinton harder in the next Presidential debate

Republican Donald Trump has vowed to hit rival Democrat Hillary Clinton harder in the next US presidential debate after she put him on the defensive by accusing him of being racist, sexist and a tax dodger during their first match up.

Mr Trump, making his first run for public office, praised himself for not attacking Mrs Clinton about the marital infidelity of her husband, former president Bill Clinton, during the debate at Hofstra University.

But he said in a morning interview with Fox News he may take up the attack line going forward.

"I may hit her harder in certain ways," Mr Trump said. He added that when Mrs Clinton criticized him for his treatment of women, he resisted.

"I was going to hit her with her husband's women. And I decided I shouldn't do it because her daughter was in the room," he said. Mrs Clinton brushed off Mr Trump's promise, saying: "He can run his campaign however he chooses."

Pastor accuses Lagos Hospital of removing wife’s womb and damaging bladder during childbirth...photo

A pastor with a Pentecostal ministry, Chinedu Rockson, has accused the management of Ilogbo Central Hospital in the Ajangbadi area of Lagos State of removing his wife’s womb and damaging her bladder during childbirth.

Chinedu said the hospital also detained his wife over the payment of N50,000, adding that efforts to clear the bill had been frustrated by the hospital.

Punch Metro learnt that Chinedu’s wife, Chinansa, had been referred to the hospital on August 26, 2016, after she could not be delivered of the baby at the hospital where she had her antenatal care.

The hospital reportedly commenced a caesarean section on the 42-year-old after her husband signed some documents to perfect the terms.


Chinedu explained that some hours into the operation, he was called into the theatre to sign another document, adding that nobody told him it was for the removal of his wife’s womb.

He said, “They charged N200, 000 for the operation and we negotiated for N150,000. I paid a deposit of N30,000 and they started the operation.

“They asked me to sign some papers, which I did. Some hours later, a surgeon said there had been complications and I would need to sign another document. He didn’t tell me what I was signing for or the implications. Because I was in a haste to get my wife saved, I signed the document.

“After some time, they brought out my wife from the theatre with a pipe attached to her bladder. We became worried when we discovered that few days afterwards, they didn’t remove the pipe.

“After a week, they said I should come and clear my bill of N50,000 so they could discharge her. I called a senior pastor, who presented them with a cheque. But they said they would keep her for the two weeks that the cheque would be ready to be cashed.”

Punch Metro gathered that a sister-in-law, who visited the victim at the hospital, asked the management why the pipe had yet to be removed.

The hospital was said to have opened up that Chinansa’s womb had been removed and her bladder damaged.

“They said she cannot control her urine without the pipe. That was when I realised what had happened,” Chinedu said.

The pastor lamented that his wife’s medical condition had worsened, adding that he could neither afford the hospital bill nor take her back home in her present condition.

It was learnt that the couple, who are indigenes of Anambra State, married in 2002 and had four children, including the newborn baby.

Lawyer to the Rockson family, Chris Ogbedeneto, in a petition to the state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, called for an investigation into the case.

He said, “Why should there be a second signing? They scared the husband with the sight of his wife in a pool of blood and did not let him know what he was signing for. What is the relationship between the womb and the bladder and why does the hospital’s director now want to discharge the woman when it is obvious that her life is in danger?

“The doctor’s action can breach the peace of the community if urgent actions are not taken. Our client feels debased and suffers a mental and psychological trauma on realising that the wife’s womb has been cut off and the bladder affected without his consent and his wife cannot control her urine anymore.”

The hospital, in its reaction, denied any wrong doing in the matter, saying Chinansa was in a bad shape when she was admitted. A director at the hospital, Dr Femi Obileyi, said the mother of four could have died but for the quick intervention of the hospital.

He said, “We are known for standard in the area where we operate and that is why we enjoy a lot of patronage. The woman in question had been mismanaged ab initio. She burst her womb in the first hospital where she registered. They pressed her womb to force the baby out and that action ruptured the womb. When she was brought to us, she was bleeding because the labour had become obstructed.

We discovered that to save her life, we would need to do a surgery. At surgery, we discovered that her uterus had burst, which had also affected her bladder. We first stopped the bleeding and then made some repairs. It was after all these that we discovered she could not control her urine.

“When they came to us, they had issues with money, which we didn’t allow to be a barrier. We admitted her and did everything possible to save her life. We can’t imagine that after saving her life, the family will turn around to fight us.

“The man was called in when the attempts to repair the womb proved abortive. He was informed that the tear was serious and we had to save her life. We did that to carry him along, and he gave his consent.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said she would get back to Punch on the case, but she had yet to do so as of press time.

Former President Obasanjo supports sale of National assets...

Image result for images of obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Tuesday threw his backings on the proposed sale of national assets but said the problem was in the coinage.

Obasanjo said this in Abeokuta at the opening ceremony of the National Council On Finance and Economic Development Conference (NACOFED).

The theme of the conference is “Enhancing Revenue Generation and Obtaining Best Value for Money in Expenditure”.

According to Obasanjo, “We must begin to do away with things that we can do without and if we must import them, let them attract very high duties,” he said.

Obasanjo who backed the call for the sale of some national assets to raise money, described such act as natural. The former president said port authorities and Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) were part of assets that Nigeria could partly sell to generate fund.

“I do not see why 49 per cent of NNPC cannot be privatised. “I think the problem is in the coinage

“selling of asset” as if we want to throw out our inheritance. “What we are actually doing by that is simply re-organising.

“It should however be done transparently and let it actually go public and not to cabals, relations and friends.

“This is always the fear of Nigerians when issues like this arise,” he said.

Wahala dey o! Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo blasts popular blogger Linda Ikeji on her bithday...

KOO-LINDA-570X500

They think i'm jealous of her each time i expose her, well this is my birthday message to her...read below...

Dear Linda, i saw your interview in Today's Woman and your birthday Twitter video. Darling you are not 36 yo and there is no reason to fool your fans. Age is nothing but a number. People who meet me think i am 35 when i'm actually 52. I look that young. Your life is now catching up with you. There is KARMA now filtering in. Linda what does it feel like telling a magazine you never got over Dan Foster? How does it feel to be engaged to someone you love and 3 weeks to the wedding it's cancelled, wasting Aso Ebi, cow money and even the venue deposit all gone. This is what you did to my niece Adeola Olunloyo. Some people heard of this already in 2006 (Global Excellence and City People) 2013 on my Panadol headache audio which i attached below and also in March 2016 in my Pulse TV interview exposing many celebrities including you.

Why do i stress so much on this sad incident? I am constantly watching how your life is going when two people are in love and a 'model' ruins their wedding 3 weeks to the day and elderly family members keep asking you what or who a 'model' is? You wrecked so many relationships in your lifetime. Uche Pedro (who forgave you) at Bella Naija vs D'Banj, Deola Olunloyo vs Dan Foster wedding in 2006 and more. Journalist and Professional Blogger Stella Dimoko Korkus told me every single relationship you wrecked and you know them, but nothing hurts more than ruining my niece's wedding. So now you are telling the world that you have blogged so much that you forgot your biological clock is ticking. You are now desperate for 'regular sex' like you are some hoe. That can be easily achieved on Allen Avenue or as 'Madam' in your Banana mansion. 

You want a man and a bunch of kids, Karma is now biting you. I'm enjoying my two successful adult children, loving motherhood and single and happy. I don't need a husband, a husband need ME. Take my advice, at 42 yo, i don't know how you are going to start a family instantly. You may find a gold digger who wants to spend your money like Maje Ayida and TeeBillz types. Just ask Toke Makinwa and Tiwa Savage are now single lovely ladies. My advice to you young lady is not to rush shit and accept your mistakes. Deola  Olunloyo has moved on, Dan Foster has a lovely family and you are alone, single and desperate telling your friends to introduce you to single guys. I was shocked reading this. Your fans kept quiet about your desperation. They are illiterates anyway. No guy is single in  Nigeria these days Linda. You are gonna be the second, third wife or the mistress. Kneel down and ask God for forgiveness, give Jennifer Aniston a call for advice and listen to my 2013 audio attached. Money can buy a Banana, Pear or Strawberry Island mansion but CANNOT buy a husband and kids. Good luck Linda, you have no blogger awards yet like Uche Pedro, Omojuwa and Ben Kirithi. Hope you get that MAMA2016 award and a Happy 42nd birthday!

Woman who defrauded footballer Osaze Odemwingie and others jailed...photo

A bogus lifestyle guru who stole more than £130,000 from Premier League footballers , a top manager and two millionaire businessmen has been jailed for three years and eight months.

Claire Liddle, 41, conned wealthy clients including Stoke City frontman Osaze Peter Odemwingie , Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom and former Celtic boss Tony Mowbray by offering to organise their luxury holidays.

She was originally spared jail after admitting the £82,000 scam in 2014 but went on to steal another £22,000 from the chairman of telecommunications giant Lebara and £33,000 from the boss of sales solutions firm Flixmedia.


Liddle "frittered away" the money on presents for herself including alcohol and a Rolex watch, the Old Bailey heard.

She wept as she was sentenced to 12 months for the first fraud on the footballers, and 16 months consecutive on each of the other two scams, making a total of 44 months.

Photo of Ex-Naval Chief and three others arraigned over alleged N600m fraud

Former Chief of Naval Staff (CONS) during the last administration, Vice Admiral Usman O. Jibrin, was yesterday arraigned before a Federal High Court in Abuja over alleged N600million fraud. Jibrin was arraigned alongside Rear Admiral Bala Mshelia (rtd), Rear Admiral Shehu Ahmadu (rtd) and a firm, Habour Bay International Limited on a 4-count charge bordering on criminal conspiracy filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

According to the antigraft agency, the accused persons while in office, bought a house worth N600million from the account of Naval Engineering Services without the said purchase contract being captured in the budget. Investigations by the EFCC showed that the documentation for transfer of ownership of the property was done such that a private company owned by the family of the first defendant (Vice Admiral Jubrin) became the buyer.

This according to EFCC is in contravention of Section 26 (1) (b) and punishable under Section 22 (4) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offence Act 2000. The accused all pleaded not guilty when the charge was read to them. Their bail application will be heard today by the ‎ trial judge, Justice A. S. Umar.

Notorious 419 Baron, Emmanuel Nwude, declared wanted..photo

The Police in Anambra Command has declared Chief Emmanuel Nwude (Owelle Abagana) wanted over involvement in a case of conspiracy, malicious damage, murder, act of terrorism and attack on policemen. Chief Nwude, from Umudunu, Abagana is a convicted Advance-Fee fraudster. 

He and his accomplices were in 2005 convicted by a federal high court for pulling the biggest 419 fraud in Nigeria's history.
Before his conviction, Nwude was the biggest shareholder in Union Bank Plc, and had controlling shares in several banks and blue chip companies. In a plea-bargain handled by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Chief Nwude agreed to forfeit cash and property to the tune of 120 million US dollars.

The agency seized several of his properties, including the popular Febson Mall, Abuja, a glass tower in Ikoyi and choice cars. He is believed to have tens of millions of dollars stashed in agents' accounts in Nigeria and abroad.

Witness confessed how he got $4million from Jonathan’s Aide...

A witness has opened up before the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos how he got $4million cash from former President Goodluck Jonathan’s ex-aide Waripamo-Owei Dudafa.

It was during the trial of the former Senior Special Assistant of Domestic Affairs to the ex-President on a 23-count charge of concealment, retention of proceeds of crime, and failure to furnish information, before Justice Mohammed Idris.

A Bureau de Change operator Murtala Abubakar said he received about N1.6billion


from Mr. Dudafa through five companies – Pluto Properties and Investment Limited, Avalon Global Property, Rotato Interlink Services, Seagate Property and Ebiwise Services Limited – between 2013 and 2015.

Dudafa is standing trails with Joseph Iwejuo.

The witness said he had known Mr. Dudafa since his days as Commissioner for Local Government in Bayelsa State

“He (Mr. Dudafa) usually sent two of his employees – Festus and Jahman – with dollars in order to change same and deposit the naira equivalent into specific accounts he provided via text messages,” said Mr. Abubakar.

The witness said he received those text messages from Mr. Dudafa on his Samsung mobile phone. The mobile phone and an Ownership Attestation Form were admitted and marked as Exhibits E and E1 respectively.

When asked whether all the instructions on how to disburse the money were received via text messages, Mr. Murtala replied in the affirmative; but added that in the last transaction, Mr. Dudafa invited him to the Presidential Villa and handed to him $4 million cash.

The witness was confronted with exhibits A – B3 in which he identified all the transactions that transpired between himself and Mr. Dudafa from 2013 to 2015 both from his companies’ accounts and his personal account.

Photo of lady who planned her own kidnap with boyfriend...

 Grace Igwe, 22 yrs old who lives with her parents at 19, Agulu Street, Umuahia, Abia State, reportedly organised her own abduction with her boyfriend, Sunday Bright.

Grace and Bright were yesterday paraded by the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Leye Oyebade. Bright, according to Oyebade, is from Esan North, Edo State.

He was arrested in connection with the abduction of the lady after she was reported missing by her father, Obinna Igwe, on August 9. “Search for the whereabouts of the missing Grace Igwe by the police and the family of the victim yielded positive result when an unknown caller demanded N100,000 ransom, which was paid in parts into the bank account of the suspect.

“This link was followed by the police in their investigation until the suspect was arrested on September 9 at Akpakpava area in Benin City, Edo State and the suspect led the police on the rescue of the victim,” CP Oyebade said. 

Narrating his side of the story, Bright said his girlfriend, Grace, came to him demanding N200,000 and when he said he did not have the money she pressed for whatever he could afford. He explained that because of the pressure and the urgency of the demand he suspected she had fallen into the hands of fraudsters who wanted her to bring the money.

Bright said he asked her whether the parents were aware of the development and she said no. From that time he started making contacts with her parents to raise the money demanded by the fraudsters who Grace alleged took her phone and other valuables until she returned with the ransom.

The boyfriend claimed that when it became obvious that she was a victim of fraudsters, he decided to help her raise the money by making calls and text messages to her parents and in the process he was arrested by the police. 

Grace stayed with him for three weeks and they were enjoying while her parents were crying.

Hillary Clinton beats Donald Trump in the US Presidential Debate...

Hillary Clinton has emerged as the winner in the epic first US presidential debate, as Donald Trump tied himself in knots and let his frustrations boil over as the contest dragged on.

Trump began the debate strongly, excelling as he argued on his own terms about the perils of "badly negotiated" free trade deals killing blue collar jobs, his business-tax-slashing plan to create jobs and the failed establishment political class that Clinton personifies.

Yet the showman failed to sustain the momentum. Clinton and the debate moderator got under his skin on his failure to release personal tax returns, public records showing he did in fact support the Iraq war despite repeatedly denying it and his spreading of false rumours about Barack Obama's nationality.

In a successful blow, Clinton created doubts about whether Trump paid any federal tax and laid bare his alleged discrimination against African Americans at his company's rental apartments in the 1970s.

A frazzled Trump took Clinton's bait on almost every occasion and wasted valuable time giving confusing counter punches to accusations hurled at him as he lost control of the debate agenda.

"Trump was Trump and it wasn't a good night for him," said David Axelrod, a former campaign strategist for Barack Obama.

In contrast, Clinton was well prepared, on message, and disciplined at painting Trump as a shonky businessman who wants to cut taxes for the rich. A poised Clinton talked up the benefits of alliance-based foreign policy and reminded voters of her government experience to handle uncertain national security dangers.
