Grandma caught with 1.740kg of cocaine.

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) said yesterday that it arrested a 65 year-old grandmother, Hassan Fatimat Abike, also known as Chika Okoye, while attempting to smuggle 1.740kg of cocaine into London in herbal syrup.
"This is not her fist time of going to London and the drug was cleverly packed to avoid detection. It was packed in balloons and inserted in ten plastic containers of herbal syrup," NDLEA said.
The agency added that the suspect was about to board a British Airways flight when its officers arrested her on Wednesday.
According to the Airport Commander, Mr. Hamza Umar, the suspect has two international passports with numbers A03348648 and A3771781A.
"She was caught during the screening of British Airways passengers to London. The cocaine found in her possession was packed in balloons and prepared into plastic bottles. It was also wrapped in black polythene bags. Each bottle was neatly sealed to avoid suspicion," he said.

"Her father is a native of Abeokuta while her mother hails from Owerri, Imo State. Hassan Fatimat Abike also known as Chika Okoye has six children and many grandchildren. She currently lives alone in Owerri and sells clothes to earn a living. The drug found in her bag tested positive to cocaine," he added.Umar said preliminary investigation revealed that she is also known as Chika Okoye, adding that she speaks Ibo and Yoruba fluently.
In her statement, she claimed that the drugs were given to her by a friend.
"I live in Owerri alone because my children are grown up and now have their families. I sell clothes to take care of myself. I met an old friend two weeks ago and during our discussion, I told him I will soon be travelling to London. He asked me to deliver some herbal medicine to his sick relative in London. I was only trying to assist an old friend. I blame myself for everything because I should have turned down his request. The drug was detected during a search at the airport," she said.
Chairman/Chief Executive of the NDLEA, Ahmadu Giade, said the agency is investigating her claim.

Apple apologizes for errors with iOS 6 Map services

Apple launched its own mapping service earlier this month when it rolled out iOS 6, the highly anticipated update to its mobile software platform, and started selling the iPhone 5.

We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better," Cook said in a letter to customers released on its website, adding that the company "fell short" of its commitment to deliver "the best experience possible to our customers."

"While we're improving Maps, you can try alternatives by downloading map apps from the App Store like Bing, MapQuest and Waze, or use Google or Nokia maps by going to their websites and creating an icon on your home screen to their web app," he said in the letter.

As Chinua Achebe Publishes Memoir, Biafra War's Legacy Lingers In Nigeria


Most Nigerians are too young to remember the devastating civil war that ripped their country apart more than four decades ago but for world-famous author and scholar Chinua Achebe, 81, the Biafran War of 1967-1970 is more than a moment in history. It is a lesson that should not be forgotten, especially as Nigeria witnesses a new wave of sectarian violence that threatens to split Africa's most populous nation again.

Death By Hanging: Policemen Shocked Over Colleague’s Fate


The verdict of death by hanging on a policeman who shot dead a three-year old girl by a Lagos High Court yesterday has thrown policemen in Lagos State, Southwest Nigeria into a big shock.
The Lagos High Court sitting in Ikeja, presided over by Justice Olabisi Akinlade sentenced to death by hanging, a police corporal, Okechukwu Nwabueze for shooting to death a three-year old girl, Kaosara Muritala.
The 35-year old Corporal Nwabueze who hails from Delta State, Southsouth Nigeria, was convicted for killing the victim on 5 April, 2009 at a check  point located at Obanle- Aro near Mr. Bigg’s in Alapere, Ketu area, Lagos.
He was arrested immediately and charged to court for murder.
Since then, he has been remanded at Ikoyi Prison during the trial that lasted about for three years.

During the trial, three witnesses testified for the prosecution including the deceased’s father and Professor John Obafunwa, a pathologist  and now the Vice Chancellor, Lagos State University, ASU, Ojo, Lagos.
Delivering judgement in the matter yesterday, Justice Akinlade held that the prosecution had proved the case beyond reasonable doubt. She said Nwabueze deliberately killed the girl.
The judge noted that in his defence, the convict gave contradictory account of what happened on that fateful day but admitted he expended two rounds of ammunition that day.
The judge also noted that the convict claimed that he shot into the air to scare the driver of the car who allegedly refused to stop. In his testimony, the father claimed that the police did not stop them and that he heard a gun shot a few metres from the check point.
Justice Akinlade upheld the case of the prosecution and sentenced Nwabueze to death by hanging.
“The Only statutory punishment for murder is death penalty. Accordingly, the sentence of the court upon you, ex-Corporal Ikechukwu Nwabueze is that you be hanged by neck until you be dead and may the Lord have mercy on your soul,” the judge pronounced.
She added: “He cannot claim that he was not aware of the consequence of the action. He had the intention to kill or cause grievous bodily injuries when he fired at the back of the car.” She pointed out that the punishment would serve as a deterrent to policemen who recklessly ‘cut short the lives of innocent Nigerians’
Nwabueze was a part time final year student of University of Lagos where he was studying Business Administration.
He enlisted into the Nigeria Police in 2005 and rose to the rant of corporal before the incident happened.
He served at Ketu Police Division before he was transferred to Alapere division.
He was still single. Some of the officers who knew him expressed shock and lamented that such fate befell him.
At the police station yesterday, they were seen discussing the matter and prayed to God to save their embattled colleague from the gallow.
Meanwhile P. M. NEWS gathered that members of his family and friends are rallying round to file an appeal against the judgment.
They described him as an easy-going  person who was at peace with his fellow colleagues

Three killed, 46 wounded in Bauchi suicide attack


A suicide bomber who tried to ram an explosives-packed car into a Nigerian church on Sunday killed 3 people including a woman and an eight-year-old boy, while wounding dozens more, the Red Cross and police said.
The attacker targeted the St. John's Catholic Church in the northern city of Bauchi, where tight security was imposed after a wave church bombings claimed by the radical Islamist group Boko Haram.
Worshippers were being screened outside the building in the city's Wunti area when the bomber approached at roughly 9:00 am (0800 GMT).

Female banker sends robbers after customer


From Daily Sun

Female banker sends robbers after customer

A female cashier working in a new generation bank along New Market Road, Onitsha, Anambra State has landed in trouble for sending robbers after a customer just after he withdrew N5 million from the bank.
It was gathered that the customer was attacked by the armed bandits who operated on two motorcycles while waiting to board a vehicle to his destination.
After being dispossessed of the money, Daily Sun gathered that the victim became suspicious of the role played by the female cashier as no other person knew about the withdrawal and he hurried back to the bank in anger and threatened to expose the cashier if the stolen money was not returned immediately to him.
According to a reliable source, the bank manager, whose office was situated close to the banking hall, overheard their argument and invited them into his office.
While interviewing both parties, the female cashier consistently denied involvement in the crime and vowed to deal with the victim if his allegation was eventually proved to be false.
However, the cat was let out of the bag during hot exchange of words when the mobile phone of the cashier rang persistently and she refused to answer the call.
While she was fidgeting, the bank manager suspected foul play and ordered the cashier to answer her call, using the amplified speaker.
When she finally picked the call after much reluctance, it was the voice of the excited robber from the other end telling the cashier that the operation was successful.
He told the cashier to meet him at the designated location to collect her share after the close of work.
The cashier became speechless after the call as tears of shame and guilt streamed down her face.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer of the state, Mr. Ralph Uzoigwe, said he had not received any complaint from the bank and promised to reach the reporter as soon as information got to him.
It was learnt that the bank was handling the incident internally to avoid a dent to its image.
