Revenue collector strangles his relative to avoid paying the N100,000 he borrowed from him

A community revenue collector, Ifeanyi Ezinwa Paul, 29, (pictured right), has told the police that he killed his 19-year-old kinsman, Victor Ebuka, pictured left, in order to avoid paying the N100, 000 loan he collected from the boy some time ago. Recounting how he met how he killed Ebuka, Paul who is married with three children, said sometime in December 2020, he met Ebuka to borrow him the money with a promise to pay back on January 10, 2021. However, his inability to pay the loan made him conceive the idea of killing Ebuka “I am married with three children. I dropped out of secondary school at SS2, months after my father died. I learnt how to drive and started driving commercial buses. It was not easy for me. Two years ago, my kinsmen invited me to come and work for the commu...

Ighalo Not Good Enough For Manchester United – Warnock

Former Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has slammed Manchester United’s loan move for Odion Ighalo describing it as an act of “desperation”. United completed a six-month loan deal for Ighalo from Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua on transfer deadline day. Ighalo was brought in as a replacement for the injured Marcus Rashford. But Warnock who took Cardiff from the Championship to the Premier League in 2018, is not convinced it would be a good move for the club. “I am not sure if it’s the right one, if I’m honest – not for Man Utd,” Warnock said on Sky Sports. “I just think it is too up in the air. I don’t think he has been that consistent and I don’t think he is the right type of player. And Warnock was not convinced it would be a good move for the club. “...

Nwosu said this in his reaction to Ihedioha’s insistence that ex-Governor Rochas Okorocha did not properly hand over to him. “The action of the governor since he assumed office has showed that he is not serious and does not seem to have any cutout plan or blueprint for governance, except the desperation to grab power”, Nwosu to The Nation. “The people of Imo state did not vote for him to start chasing shadows. For the time he will stay as the governor, he should unfold his plans and programme for the people. No one is interested in excuses, what the people want is performance and nothing less. ...

Desperation Will Make Senators, Reps Repeat Saraki’s Stunt — Abdulmumin Jibrin

Jubrin Abdulmumin, a member of the House of Representatives from Kano State, has expressed fears that high level lobbying already going on among elected senators and House of Representatives members over leadership positions in the 9th legislature may result in similar circumstances that saw Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara clinching the positions in the 8th NASS. According to the former chairman of Appropriations Committee, who was once suspended by the House, what lawmakers should be looking out for ahead of the inauguration of the ninth Assembly should be leaders who are ready to commit to electronic system or reforms in the National Assembly, such that when lawmakers are voting on any bill, the constituencies where they come from will be visible.

APC Reacts to Claims That Buhari Called for Violence If PDP Wins

APC has denied claims by Atiku Abubakar who stated that President Buhari called for violence if the opposition party, the PDP, should win the presidential election. According to Atiku, Buhari made this known during a campaign rally in Zamfara. Reacting to the allegation, APC spokesman, Festus Keyamo labelled it as false. He said, “Nothing can be farther from the truth. The Hausa word the President used in Zamfara, which has been taken out of context, is “fitna”. Incidentally all our Hausa language scholars have said the word means different things: it means distress, trial, affliction or temptation. It can also be used to describe rebellion or uprising. “In this case, President Buhari was actually weighing in on the joke told very often of recent in the North that due to the rice...

Of 1,500 Nigerians in Italian Prisons and Greener Pasture Seekers

The other time, we got wind of the UK government’s plan to build a special wing in the Kikiriki Prison in Lagos, so that Nigerians who are serving jail terms in different UK prisons could be transferred to Nigeria to complete their terms. Similarly, the German government recently revealed that it was challenged on how to handle over 30, 000 Nigerians who are to be repatriated to Nigeria over illegal immigration and other related offences. There are certainly more Nigerians, who are still languishing in immigration centres and prisons in different countries around the world for various infractions, whose circumstances would never get to the public. So it didn’t come as a surprise when the Italian government, through its Ambassador to Nigeria, Stefanou Pontesilli, recently announc...
