Court Sentences Man To 45 Years Imprisonment For Stealing Governor’s Handset


A 31-year old ex-policeman, Kelvin Ighodalo has been sentenced to 45-year imprisonment by an Osogbo High Court for stealing a N50,000 Sony Ericsson phone belonging to Governor Rauf Aregbesola.

Justice Oyejide Falola, who precided over the case, found the accused guilty on six counts, which included conspiracy, stealing and fraud.

Justice Falola thereafter sentenced Mr Ighodalo to 10-year imprisonment for the first three counts and five years for each of the last three which included impersonation, obtaining property by falsehood and collusion.

The Judge explained that the convict deserved the sentence and held that the convict used the phone to obtain N500, 000 from the Owa of Ilesa, Oba Adekunle Aromolaran, while he obtained N200, 000 from Shengen Rahman, an associate of the governor.

The defence counsel, Mr. Amaechi  Ngwu pleaded with the court to be lenient with his client by giving him the minimum punishment.

But Justice Jide Falola of the high court in Osogbo, the state capital, discountenanced the plea and sentenced Kelvin to 10 years imprisonment without an option of fine.

Fast & Furious 6 Trailer

The last trailer for Fast & Furious 6 before its May 24 release date makes the latest installment in the series the series look like it's going to be the most action-packed.

Dwayne Johnson, who also stars in Pain & Gain, returns as Agent Luke Hobbs. After butting heads with Dominic (Vin Diesel)'s car gang in Fast Five, he enlists their help to join the side of law enforcement and take down another group of drivers.

It appears Dominic and the rest will have access to a bevy of equipment, including a Pontiac Superbird (with giant rear wing, naturally). To sweeten the pot, Agent Dobbs gives Dom a photo of his thought-to-be-dead lover: Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), alive and well.

However, they will need every car they can get their hands on. The other gang, apparently led by Luke Evans' character, takes down a military convoy and later escapes from another heist in what appears to be a modified F1 racecar.

The film will be Justin Lin's fourth time directing in the series.  Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster return to the cast as well.

5 Year Old Girl caught in casino crossfire

Police drive away with some of the suspects. Photo: Itumeleng English

Fierce shootout was witnessed on Sunday between the police and the small army of AK-47-wielding gangsters in what might have gone down as one of the biggest casino hits in the country, but for the swift intervention of the Jo'burg police department.. 

Armed with a number of firearms and travelling in at least two different cars, the 19 suspects were stopped before their plan went into full swing at Emperors Palace in Kempton Park on Sunday. 

The task team pounced on the gang at about 7am. A shootout broke out, and after the dust had settled, police counted at least 15 men in custody, with four of them under guard in hospital. 

A five-year-old girl was slightly wounded on her head and hand, when she was hit by a stray bullet that apparently went through a hotel window. 

SAPS spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said police had been tipped off about the planned heist. The police’s intelligence unit immediately sprang into action. 

Dlamini described the operation as “very big”, with officers, including the specialised Tactical Response Team, called in from across Gauteng and deployed at strategic points in and around the casino, which is close to OR Tambo International Airport. 

None of the police officers was injured in the shootout.

Chris Brown and Rihanna should have never gotten back together - Chris Brown's dad


Chris Brown's father has the same feelings as most prople when it comes to his Chris dating Rihanna -- they should have NEVER gotten back together.

In an interview with the New York Daily News, Clinton Brown said that while he understand CB's attraction to RiRi, they are better off on their own. He told the paper, "I personally really didn’t want him and Rihanna back together."

The elder Brown, who split from CB's mom when he was 6, thinks the on-again/off-again couple does not have the proper balance to maintain a good relationship, explaining, "You have to have someone who is spontaneous and whimsical but you also have to have someone who is grounded and logical." 

Clearly neither Chris nor Rihanna would be described as "grounded" or "logical."

Three college students were killed and more than 200 others were injured after an examination hall, where they were taking the West African Examination Council (WAEC) exam, collapsed, a senior government official said Friday.

The incident occurred at about 6:38 p.m., local time on Thursday at a private secondary school at Mararaba, Donga Local Government in the northeast Taraba State, Chairman of Donga Local Government, Douglas Ndatse told GistMedia Nigeria.

Douglas said the storey building housing the examination hall carved in as the college students numbering over 500 were about to commence Biology Science exam.

A police source told GistMedia Nigeria that the students had barely been served their question papers for the day examination when the building suddenly collapsed.

A total of 560 candidates were writing WAEC in the school.

Some of the students were said to have complained of the building's cracks even before the commencement of their examinations.

Some of the injured persons who could not assess medical service at the community have been taken to the CRCN Hospital at Takum, a nearby town.

Hospital sources said 30 of the 200 injured students brought to the hospital were in critical condition, adding that some of them may be flown to Abuja and other Nigerian cities for better medical attention.

Soccer fan shot by police in Northern Nigeria

A high-profile Nigeria league match between champions Kano Pillars and Heartland was abandoned on Wednesday after police shot a fan at the Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano, northern Nigeria.

"The match was called off after Heartland refused to continue the game after a fan was shot in the foot by police inside the stadium and the fans protested," Pillars media officer Idris Malikawa disclosed.

"The fan was said to have done something illegal - he has been rushed to hospital."
The match was goalless after half an hour before this incident.
"Pillars fans would have to be commended for the way and manner they comported themselves during the problem," said Malikawa.

"The situation was brought to normal but Heartland refused to continue for fear of their safety despite assurances from the match officials."
However, Heartland media officer Cajetan Nwokpara gave a different account, saying some home fans invaded the pitch.

"Our match was inconclusive because some home fans invaded the pitch with knives, cutting the net and trying to remove the goal post after they had done so with the corner flags," he said.

"I don't really know what caused this. We were escorted to our hotel by the security and everybody in our team is okay."

Interestingly the same fixture last season also ended in controversy after Heartland claimed they were manhandled by their home fans after they managed a 1-1 draw in Kano.

Suarez facing big ban for biting opponent


Controversial soccer star Luis Suarez will not be sacked by Liverpool despite his latest biting incident, but he faces a lengthy suspension. The Premier League club said Monday it had fined the Uruguay international for his assault on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, and the English Football Association later announced the 26-year-old has been charged with violent conduct.

"It is the FA's contention that the standard punishment of three matches that would otherwise apply is clearly insufficient in these circumstances," the ruling body said. Suarez, who was banned seven matches for biting an opponent during a Dutch league game shortly before joining Liverpool in January 2011, wrestled with Ivanovic before sinking his teeth into the Serbian's arm during Sunday's 2-2 draw at Anfield.

Suarez has until Tuesday to respond to the charge -- if he doesn't then the hearing will take place Wednesday. British Prime Minister David Cameron said any punishment for Suarez needs to take into account his high profile and responsibility as a role model.

Canada Thwarts Al Qaeda Terror Plot Targeting U.S. Bound Train


Canadian authorities have arrested two men accused of planning to carry out an Al Qaeda-supported attack against a passenger train traveling between Canada and the United States.

“As I understand it, it was a train going from Canada to the U.S.,” Rep. Peter King, R-New York, chairman of the counterterrorism and intelligence subcommittee, said.

The news follows an announcement earlier in the day by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police that they had arrested Chiheb Esseghaier, 30, and Raed Jaser, 35.

The two men are charged with “receiving support from al Qaeda elements in Iran” to carry out an attack and conspiring to murder people on a VIA railway train in the greater Toronto area, Assistant Police Commissioner James Malizia said.

“When I speak about supported, I mean direction and guidance,” he said.

Despite the allegation of links to al Qaeda in Iran, there was no evidence to suggest the planned attacks were state-sponsored, Malizia said.

U.S. authorities say the plot involved detonating explosives on a train traveling from Toronto to Penn Station in New York.

Essenghaier, of Montreal, and Jaser, of Toronto, will make their first court appearance on Tuesday, police said.

“We are alleging these two individuals took steps and conducted activities to conduct a terrorist attack,” Jennifer Strachan of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police told reporters.

“They watched trains and railways in the greater Toronto area.”

The alleged attack included a plan to derail a passenger train, she said.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation quoted “highly placed sources” as saying the suspects were under surveillance for more than a year.

The CBC reported that the investigation was “part of a cross-border operation involving Canadian law enforcement agencies, the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.”

TV anchor suspended: News anchor drops the F-Word on first newscast

A TV anchor has been suspended from KFYR-TV, the NBC affiliate in Bismarck, ND, after not having a very successful first broadcast. Airing on the night of Sunday, April 21, 2013, A.J. Clemente was set to go on the air for his first news broadcast and must not have realized that his microphone was on according to RadarOnline.

A mere fifteen seconds into his first every broadcast, Clemente exclaimed:

"F*****G sh*t!"

Clemente was looking down and fiddling with his mic at the time he said it, but his co-anchor went straight into the news and continued on. Van Tieu, Clemente's co-anchor, went on and introduced her new co-anchor, but he may not be there for very long.

“You may have seen our newest reporter A.J. on North Dakota News, and he’ll be joining the weekend news team as my co-anchor,” she said.

Clemente was suspended by the station shortly after the broadcast aired on Sunday night, and then gave an apology to viewers on Facebook. The TV anchor, now suspended, on the other hand, took to Twitter with a simple message.

"That couldn't have gone any worse!" Clemente tweeted.

Brazil police sentenced to 156 years for 1992 Carandiru prison 'massacre'


Twenty-three Brazilian police were sentenced to 156 years in jail each on Sunday for their role in the killing of 111 inmates in 1992 during Brazil's deadliest-ever prison uprising.

The policemen, most of them now retired, were accused of killing 15 prisoners in Sao Paulo's Carandiru prison during the operation to quell the revolt on Oct 2, 1992, which came to be known as the "Carandiru massacre."

Survivors had described scenes of chaos, accusing police of firing on inmates who had already surrendered or were hiding in their cells. In addition to the 111 prisoners who were killed, another 87 were wounded.

No police were harmed in the operation, but the defence said they fired in self-defence after being threatened and assaulted by the prisoners. Three other policemen in the trial were cleared of wrongdoing.

Mr Kimura, born on 19 April 1897, is believed to be the last known man to have lived across three centuries. He worked as a postman until he was 65 years old before taking up farming until he was 90.

Son of Senegal's ex-president accused of amassing $1.3 billion fortune taken into custody


A lawyer for the son of Senegal's former president says his client has been taken into police custody.

Karim Wade is believed to have amassed a personal fortune of more than $1.3 billion, and a special prosecutor has been investigating the possible embezzlement of state funds. Lawyer Cire Cledor Ly said that Wade was brought Monday to a police station where he was being interrogated.

His father, Abdoulaye Wade, left office last year after losing the presidential runoff election in a landslide.

Karim Wade has long been the subject of accusations of embezzlement, especially after his father appointed him to head a "super ministry," giving him control over the key sectors of the Senegalese economy.

His lawyer has said that his client is being unjustly accused.

Armed robber blasts out of prison with explosives in tissue packets


An armed robber who was being held over the death of a police officer was placed on Interpol's most wanted list on Monday, two days after he took four guards hostage and used explosives hidden inside tissue packets to blast his way out of a prison in Lille, near the Belgian border. Redoine Faid freed his hostages along his getaway route.

It isn't the first time Faid has gone on the lam. He was arrested in 1998 after three years on the run in Switzerland and Israel, according to French media.

Faid was freed after serving 10 years of his 31-year sentence and swore he had turned his life around, writing a confessional book about his life of crime and going on an extensive media tour.

"When I was on the run, I lived all the time with death, with fear of the police, fear of getting shot," he told Europe 1 radio at the time.

20-year-old Become Nigerian And South African Youngest Commercial Pilot

Mr. Odozor who graduated alongside 15 other trained pilots at the Afrika Union Aviation Academy (AUAA), Mafikeng, South Africa on Saturday was described as the new hope of the African aviation industry. Capt. Allan Roebuck, Director of AUAA, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Johannesburg that Mr. Odozor completed all the 37 flying procedures in record time.
“The academy is proud of this young Nigerian, with the award of licence and certificate to him. Today, I can say he is the youngest commercial licence pilot in both Nigeria and South Africa. “I cannot say now if he is the youngest African to attain that record, but I’m sure he is the youngest in South Africa and Nigeria,’’ he said.

FG bans film on Nigerian poverty, places producer under security watch


The Nigerian government has banned the airing and distribution of the documentary, Fueling Poverty, a 30-minute film which documents the massive poverty in Nigeria and advocates against corruption and greed in the country.

The documentary, released late in 2012, was produced by young filmmaker, Ishaya Bako, in partnership with the Open Society for West Africa [OSIWA].



But in an April 8 letter to Mr. Bako, exclusively obtained by PREMIUM TIMES Friday, the agency prohibited the distribution and exhibition of the documentary in Nigeria, saying its contents “are highly provocative and likely to incite or encourage public disorder and undermine national security.”

The letter, signed by the NFVCB’s Head of Legal Services, Effiong Inwang, warned the filmmaker against violating the order, saying “all relevant national security agencies are on the alert. A copy of this letter has been sent to the Director General, Department of State Services and the Inspector General of Police for their information.”

20 women raped, police van burnt as hoodlums invade Agbarha-Otor


thugs
THERE is apprehension in Agbarha-Otor kingdom in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State following a reign of terror unleashed on the people by hoodlums in the last few days.

The Area Commander, Ughelli, Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP, Awosola Awotinde confirmed to Saturday Vanguard that 34 persons were in police net in connection with the orgy of violence.
THUGS
It was gathered that no fewer than 20 women and girls, including an eight-year-old daughter of the Vicar of an Anglican church in the community were raped by the hooligans, who also set ablaze a police patrol vehicle.
A number of police officers were, at the outset, sent to the palace of the monarch of Agbarha-Otor, His Royal Majesty Richard Oghenevwogaga, Ebelle-Okorefe I, to secure the king’s abode following a breakdown of law and order in the community, Wednesday night, but rampaging hoodlums overpowered them.
At press time, last night, the monarch has relocated from the palace for safety reason, while the Area Commander, Ughelli, has reinforced security in the town. Saturday Vanguard also sighted soldiers in the troubled community.
The hooligans, numbering about 100 were angry that the monarch refused to participate in the traditional “Ekene” festival on grounds that he is a Christian.
According to our source, “they wanted the king to make sacrifice to the deity, but he refused, saying he is a Christian and they should go ahead without him contributing money or cooking for them during the feast, as some of the priests and chiefs demanded.
“His refusal to take part in the feast infuriated the hooligans, who vowed to foment trouble and they executed their mission on Wednesday, the last day of the feast. The unfortunate thing is that some chiefs even supported their rebellion,” he added.
Saturday Vanguard learnt that hoodlums allegedly expelled from the community because of their criminal escapades, started with the clergyman because it was in his church that the king held a thanksgiving service recently.
Besides raping the clergyman’s eight-year-old daughter, hospitalized because of the incident and other girls, they also hijacked the property of people, claiming that the deity wanted them.
A community leader said, the miscreants engaged in raping of women (married and single) since the festival, which is held once every 15 years started on 27th of March. It took a worrisome dimension Wednesday night as they invaded the Church’s vicarage, destroyed and looted properties worth thousands of naira after making the vicar and his households undergo some inhuman treatments.”
According to our source, “on their way from the vicarage, they invaded the shop of the Queen Mother of Agbarha-Otor and raided her shop; they stole wines and practically every other thing in the shop and also vandalized the freezer.”
