Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde Calls Out EFCC Over Arrest Of Fishermen

A few day ago (Sept. 24) officials of The Nigerian Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) arraigned a bunch of fishermen for allegedly fishing in unauthorized waters.

The men who were arrested on March 27th by officers of the Nigerian Navy were all arraigned at the Federal High Court in Lagos yesterday where the presiding Judge, Justice Ibrahim Buba granted them bail of N10 million each. They are being remanded at the Ikoyi prisons pending when they meet their bail conditions!
News of their bail requirements and arrest went viral on social media and even Nollywood actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde chimed in to express her complete dissatisfaction on the actions of the EFCC.

Don Jazzy & Attempted Murder Accuser, Princewill Ojukwu Make Peace


You might recall I told you a few days ago about a petition brought against Don Jazzy and his minions for attempted murder, theft, and grievous bodily harm by former nightclub owner Princewill Ojukwu. Ojukwu claimed Don Jazzy and his minions assaulted him beat him on Friday December 21st after he and Jazzy exchanged words at IDJA’s new club PoP in Victoria Island

According to Stella Dimoko Peace was brokered between the two by concerned friends, everything has been forgiven and all is now well between the two after peace talks were held at a hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos on 12th Jan. They even took several pictures together to prove it.

Young Doctor Irawo Adamolekun Shot & Killed In Broad Daylight in Lagos


This is so sad, and my heart is so damn heavy as I type this. I don’t know this guy Irawo, who was killed yesterday (11th Jan) in broad daylight in front of hundreds of people. But it always hits my core when a young person passes away especially so suddenly.


Faces of ALUU4 Murder Suspects


According to the Nigerian Police these are the some of the suspects involved in the brutal killing of 4 University of Port Harcourt students, on the 5th of October 2012. The jungle justice type killing of Lloyd Michael, Chidiaka Biringa, Ugonna Ibuzor, Tekena Elkanah was filmed and posted online causing mass outrage and calls for the heads of their killers, who were yesterday paraded in front of the press in Rivers State.

Let’s not get too excited though, Naija police are fond of parading innocent people in front of the press as suspects. I hope this isn’t one of those times.

In other related news, Sahara Reporters is reporting that the alleged instigator of the vigilante lynching and murder Coxson Lerebori Lucky, also known as “Bright” has been arrested. The Police a few days ago in a statement said none of the boys were armed robbers or cultists, but that they had only gone to Bright’s house to collect money owed to one of them. Bright organized the vigilante mob by claiming the students had stolen laptops and smart-phones, a claim that was disputed by parents of one of the students and police authorities.



Hot Shots | James Ibori’s Mugshot

Check out former Delta State governor James Ibori‘s mugshot…it was taken yesterday after he plead guilty in a British court to charges of money-laundering, conspiring to defraud and obtaining a money transfer by fraud. British police have accused him of stealing $250m (£160m) over eight years.

James Ibori, 49, entered his plea yesterday at Southwark Crown Court.

He is to be sentenced on April 16.

Wow…from living lavish to languishing in jail. If it’s any consolation the UK Prison System isn’t as bad as Nigerian prisons…he’ll get 3 square meals, can get a degree, and what not. He just shuldn’t ever bend over to pick up the soap in the shower!



Michael Jackson’s doctor found GUILTY of manslaughter! NO Bail Granted!

Michael Jackson‘s physician at the time of his death on June 25 2009, Dr Conrad Murray has been found guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter. The verdict was reached after 10 hours of deliberations which began on Friday, Nov. 4.

He now awaits sentencing on November 29, which could be anywhere between probation and 4 years behind bars. For now he is remanded in custody without bail.

MJ died of cardiac and respiratory arrest following an acute Propofol (anesthesia) overdose on June 25, 2009 in his rented Holmby Hills, CA mansion.

According to reports from inside the courtroom, when the verdict was read : Conrad Murray showed no emotion as the judge remanded him to jail immediately without bond and La Toya Jackson screamed out in the quiet courtroom when the verdict was read. Court officers asked her to be silent.

I welcome this verdict, as a licensed medical professional he should know better, he is not some drug dealer off the streets without ethics, he took an oath and he should have stuck by it. Administering Propofol (an anaesthetic that shouldn’t be used outside a surgical environment by an anaesthesiologist) was just sloppy, and calling his mistresses while the man lay in bed dying…c’mon Conrad!

At the end of the day if it wasn’t him it probably would have been some other doctor…let’s face it MJ was an addict…sucks for Conrad Murray though. Now he has no license, no career and he’ll forever be known as the man who killed the world’s greatest entertainer. O ma se o.

21 year old Nigerian Graduate Student gunned down in the US

Sad, heartbreaking news coming from the States about a 21 year old Nigerian student who has been gunned down in the driveway of his home, in Dolston, Illinois. Olubusayo Awomolo who was a graduate student of University of Illinois at Chicago, was on his way back from school when he was mercilessly gunned down by unknown men.

Some neighbors said they heard the shooting and at least one saw several men go up to Olubusayo, yet no one called police…seriously?! Busayo’s family home is in a safe, suburban neighbourhood, so a crime like his happening and no one reporting what they saw is nothing short of surprising.
