Lagos high court admits?alleged confessional statement of suspected kidnap kingpin??Evans?, adjourns case to November 28
An Igbosere High Court, Lagos, on Wednesday, Ocotber 23rd admitted the alleged confessional statement of the suspected kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, popularly known as“ Evans” as an exhibit.

Delivering a ruling, Justice Adedayo Akintoye, held that the test of voluntariness of a statement cannot be determined by a procedural law relied upon by the defendant but by the provisions of the evidence act which is the instant law that regulates the admissibility of a statement.

She said the defendant admitted during trial within a trial that while he was making his confessional statement, there were no chains on his legs and no knife was held over his head.
“Once the basic requirements in obtaining statements from an accused person have been followed and no injustice can be said to have been caused to the defendant, the rules of evidence requires that the statement will be relevant and admissible in law.
“I consider the allegations of duress made by the defendant as an afterthought, however, none of the allegations made by the defendant was proved by him. Having considered the evidence before the court and having the opportunity to hear the witnesses, I have no reason to doubt the evidence of the prosecution witnesses.
“I, therefore, hold that the prosecution has established the voluntariness of the statement sought to be tendered. Therefore, the argument of the learned counsel for the first defendant in these issues is hereby discountenanced. The result is that the five-page statement of the first defendant sought to be tendered as the exhibit is hereby admitted as an exhibit,” Akintoye held.
Evans is currently facing two separate charges, bordering on conspiracy to kidnap, kidnapping and attempted murder, before Justice Adedayo Akintoye. In the first charge, Evans is standing trial alongside Joseph Emeka, Ugochukwu Nwachukwu, and Victor Aduba. In the second charge, he is standing trial alongside Joseph Emeka, Linus Okpara and Victor Aduba.
Evans had on Jan. 16 told the court that his confessional statement after his arrest sometime in 2017, was made under duress. He stated that he signed the papers given to him by the police with fear not to be tortured to death.

After listening, Justice Akintoye adjourned the case until November 28 for further hearing.


Stolen UK, US banks? credit card among evidence allegedly found in Naira Marley
At the resumed trial of Naira Marley over an alleged credit card fraud at the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos today October 23, the Economic and Financial Crimes tendered evidence they found in Naira Marley's laptop after his arrest which includes stolen credit card information issued by European, American and Latin American banks.

The credit card information reportedly belonged to four persons in the United Kingdom (UK) including one Nicole Louise. EFCC's forensics expert, Mr Nuru Buhari who testified in court said the top five most visited sites on the laptop dealt on buying and selling of stolen credit card information. He also revealed that a file named select BIN 101.txt and .txt. had stolen credit card information with special status that allows transaction up-to $12,000 without a pin or physical card.

“During analysis, the cache file and history file revealed that the most frequently visited sites by the user of the computer includes arder007.org, Zuni.sa, nationwidecheckbalance.co.uk, ferunshop.net AMD cocoa.co.uk.”
“Analysis of the websites revealed that web 1 is where stolen card information is sold to intending fraudsters, web 2 is for stolen credit cards specifically for the UK, web 3 is an online website designed for UK card holders to check their balance wherever they are around the world, web 4 is a dark web meaning an underground tunnel in the internet where stolen credit card information are sold and traded, web 5 is an online shopping mall where members are given discounts for shopping from certain shops.
“For the note file, two major files were discovered named .txt which contained about four credit card information belonging to four different personalities in the UK including one Nicole Louise.
“The second file is named selected BIN101.txt containing Bank Identification Number of European, American and Latin American banks.
“When we ran the BIN code search for the first six digits of the cards, it revealed they are Visa cards issued by Barclay’s bank, Sandander UK plc" he said.
Buhari further disclosed that his team was able to identify “certain banks in the US, Europe and Asia with certain peculiarities, these are banks that they issue credit cards without pins based on the high level of trust, they allow a transaction of up to $12,000 in a swipe on pos.
“Cards issued by those banks are card not required. All you need to execute a transaction is the card number and the CVV number. ”

Buhari also told Justice Oweibo that suspicious apps that are mostly used by people with shady deals on the internet were found in the laptop.

He said: “We analysed installed apps on the laptop and we found two apps that enables the owner of the computer to decide the server of a bank as to his identity and location, IP VANISH and TOR browser.
“The TOR browser is sometimes called the onion. Most of the criminals cover their tracks with various layers just like an onion using this app to make it near impossible for a tracker to track their location.
“The IP VANISH is a virtual private network (VPN) which provides that the actual computer and location of usage cannot be identified. It also gives the user the ability to change their location.”

The Nation reported that the court also heard how Naira Marley's iCloud account is connected to administrator account on the laptop.

Justice Nicholas Oweibo adjourned the case till Friday October 25 for cross examination of EFCC's witness, as Naira Marley's counsel Olalekan Ojo requested for a survey of the Apple Mac book Pro laptop, an iPhone allegedly confiscated from the defendant and the forensic laboratory report prepared by Mr Buhari.

Over 30 months after, jailed Nigerian filmmaker, Seun Egbegbe yet to meet bail conditions
Controversial Yoruba filmmaker, Seun Egbegbe, has now spent 31 months in prison custody due to his failure to perfect his bail conditions.

Seun has been incarcerated since February 10, 2017 after he was arraigned by the police for alleged fraud involving N39 million; $90,000 and £12,550.

The spokesperson for the Lagos State Command of the Nigerian Correctional Service, Rotimi Oladokun, has confirmed that the filmmaker is still being held at the Ikoyi prisons.

“It is not our fault. The N5 million bail bond is yet to be paid neither have any sureties come forward,” Oladokun said.

The police alleged that Egbegbe fraudulently obtained the monies over a period of two years – 2015 to 2017. He was accused of falsely telling them (the BDC operators) that he had naira to change into foreign currencies and vice versa.

According to Egbegbe’s lawyer, Adebayo Onifade, his client has remained in custody because his bail conditions are yet to be perfected. “One of the boys who was arraigned alongside Seun has perfected his bail conditions and gone home and he isn’t as influential as my client. Even before I took up Seun’s case, he had already been granted bail and when I came on board I applied for a variation and it was granted. I think it is just a question of finance or family members'.

At the time he was sentenced, Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo of the Federal High Court ruled that the filmmaker be granted bail once he meets his bail requirements which include;
“One of the sureties must be a civil servant who has attained level 16 while the other surety must be a landowner in any part of Lagos metropolis.
”The landowner must submit a Certificate of Ownership of the landed property while the civil servant must submit his international passport to the court.
“The sureties must swear to an affidavit while the house and office addresses and a telephone number will be verified by the court,” the judge ruled then.

Photos: Two women caught at Japan airport with packages of drugs wrapped in condoms and hidden in their private parts
Japanese police and Customs officials at Fukuoka Airport have arrested seven Thai women who smuggled drugs weighing more than a kilogram into the country.

Two of the women were arrested this week with bundles of crystal meth (Ice) wrapped tightly plastic and condoms and hidden in their private parts.

According to Thailand’s Narcotics Board, Fukuoka Airport officials said the suspects, all between 20 and 50, were searched because they were acting suspiciously.
“For those traveling into Japan, please note that Japanese authorities are now hyper-vigilant about drug smuggling into the country especially by visitors traveling from Thailand,” Niyom Termsrisuk, the Narcotics Control Board’s sec-gen, told reporters on Tuesday.

Upon questioning, all seven women reportedly admitted to smuggling the drugs into the country for sale to foreigners living in Japan.

37 Thais have been arrested this year in 20 separate drug-smuggling incidents.  Most of those busted were women traveling to the country as tourists, Niyom said, adding that the perpetrators were hired, encouraged or pressured into smuggling by an “ethnic” drug trafficker.
“We’d like to warn our citizens not to fall victim or to be persuaded to be used as a tool in these dealers’ cross-country smuggling schemes. This may come in the form of inviting you to travel for free in exchange for hiding drugs in your body or they may just blatantly ask you to smuggle drugs,” Niyom said.

4,477 motorcycles?seized from traffic violators will be crushed soon -?Lagos State Task Force
The Lagos State Task Force on Tuesday, October 22nd said that 4,477 motorcycles had been seized from traffic violators in various parts of the state.

CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, the chairman of the task force said the motorcycles were seized from the beginning of June to date. Egbeyemi said that some of the motorcycles were retrieved by their owners after receiving penalties while the rest were still within the premises of the Task Force’s office located in Oshodi, Lagos.  

He said that after six months, a court order would be sought and the unclaimed motorcycles destroyed by the Lagos State Government to serve as a deterrent to others.
“The Governor of Lagos came on board in May, and 4,477 motorcycles have been seized from traffic offenders. All those unclaimed motorcycles seen in our premises were seized from June to date (October).  
“What we do is that we crush them, there is a company that helps the LASG to crush them, after which they are sold as scrap. The governor, however, no longer wants them sold as scrap, but he wants them to be crushed or destroyed totally. We have ordered crushing machines from abroad because the one in Epe is faulty. The new crushing machines will soon arrive and soon they will all be crushed,” Egbeyemi said.
He said that the corporate commercial motorcycles such as Opay and Gokada, which were also seized, would have the same fate as no individual or organisation was above the law.  

Egbeyemi said: “what is good for the goose is also good for the gander. Nobody is above the law. The Gokada, Opay and those other corporate motorcycles rode against traffic (one way) that is why the riders were arrested and the motorcycles confiscated. The penalty for such offences is total forfeiture. The owners of those motorcycles (Gokada and Opay) were to be charged to court but some of them ran away.”  

He noted that motorcyclists were usually hesitant to attempt retrieving their motorcycles because of the possibility of serving a jail term. “Some of the motorcyclists came and the court issued them fine, while the others are usually afraid to come because one of the penalties for driving against traffic (one way) is an option of one-year imprisonment and they are scared of going to jail,” he said.

Pandemonium in UNILAG as female student confessed that she
Pandemonium broke out in Fagunwa hall, a female hostel in the University of Lagos, last night October 22nd, after students residing in the hall claimed a fellow student confessed that she is a mermaid.

Upon hearing the news that one of them confessed she was of the marine world, female students ran out of the hostel for ''safety.''

According to reports shared by some students of UNILAG, the alleged mermaid known as Olamide was said to have had misunderstanding with another student identified as Blessing who she was accomodating in her room. Olamide claimed Blessing stole her necklace and threatened to deal with Blessing with powers from the ''Marine Spirits.''

Giving a summary of the incident, a student wrote:
“A girl named Blessing who is being squatted by Olamide in Fagunwa hall had a misunderstanding with her. The misunderstanding was caused by a missing wristwatch. Upon losing her necklace, Olamide suspected Blessing and immediately sent her packing from the room and also wrote long notes stating and threatening her not to ever mess with the Marine spirits frankly stating that she is one of them. This statement and notes written by the “mammy water” sparked speculations that she was an actual water goddess. Her roommates said that she only baths in the morning, upon waking, her bed is always soaked,  she wakes up to soak and pour water on her leg, praying to a necklace over her bed every morning.
“These statements provoked her roommates who dragged her outside while still emphatically insisting that she’s a mermaid.
“These frustrations caused her (mammy water) to reveal that the missing necklace (the one that causes fight) makes her turn into a fish. After these confessions, the Able-bodied Alpha base were then invited into the hostel to lead her out.”

Meanwhile Nigerians have taken to Twitter to react to the unbelievable news. See their reactions below.

Three years after,?Britain lifts ban on flights to Egyptian resort
A ban on flights between the Egyptian Red Sea resorts of Sharm el-Sheikh and Britain has been lifted.

Flights were suspended to and from Sharm el-Sheikh in 2015 after a bomb exploded on a Russian passenger jet shortly after take-off, killing all 224 people on board. The bombing, which was claimed by the Islamic State, prompted multiple countries to cancel flights to the Red Sea resort town.

The British government said in a statement that the improvement in security procedures at the Sharm el-Sheikh airport, and close co-operation between the UK and Egypt on aviation security, showed commercial airlines could operate the routes now.

According to the Secretary of State for Transport, Grant Shapps, everybody now looks forward to services to Sharm el-Sheikh resuming, and lifting the restriction is the first step in that direction.

During a recent radio interview, Fat Joe recounts the tale of him not giving Eminem a chance early in his career saying, “Eminem out here in Miami, he gave me his demo like six different times.

I didn’t do it and now he’s the biggest guy in the universe.”

Abacha
President Muhammadu Buhari's special adviser on Social Investments, Maryam Uwais has disclosed that General Sani Abacha's loot which was recently recovered was spent on lifting on lifting Nigerians out of poverty.

Uwais who disclosed this at a two-day experts’ training and advocacy on tracing and recovery of illicit funds and assets in Port Harcourt on Monday October 21, said the total cumulative amount disbursed from the Abacha loot between August/September 2018 and September/October payment 2019 from the International Development Association (IDA) credit, was $76,538,530 and $27,099,028.

"The funds are specifically being disbursed to beneficiaries of the national cash transfer programme (a component of the National Social Investment Programme N-SIP).
“The gesture is positively changing the fortunes of many Nigerians who find themselves below the poverty line, based on the data collated in the communities and hosted on the national social register" she said.

Insisting that the recovered funds was well utilized and not looted as was the case in the past, Uwais added that the decision to disburse the recovered Abacha loot to poor Nigerians was reached by by the Swiss government, the World Bank and the federal government.

“In December 2014, a Swiss judge gave a forfeiture order to the effect that monies (322.5 million dollars) recovered from the family of the late General Abacha would be returned to Nigeria.
“One of the conditions being that, the World Bank would be involved in monitoring disbursements there from,” she added.

FG sent 150 Nigerians to China to study railway engineering - Amaechi
The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi on Monday October 21, announced that the Federal Government has sent over 150 Nigerians to Chinese universities to study railway engineering.

Amaechi who disclosed this while defending his Ministry's budget before the National Assembly’s joint committee on marine transport, said the aim of sending these Nigerians to China is for the maintenance and sustainability of trains in Nigeria.

“On maintenance and sustainability, if you check the picture of my trip to China, you will see some black men with the Chinese. I told them they learned from America and you copied the Americans in producing your coaches, because when I went there, they were teaching them leadership and managing resources.
“I told them, let’s not manage, tell us how you built these trains so that when it breaks down, we don’t have to make a telephone call for you to come down and fix it. So we have agreed to design a curriculum and train all these people out there.
“Secondly, we have sent over 150 persons, children, to two universities in China, funded by the Chinese government to go and read railway engineering. We hope that in four years they will graduate. Those who will do masters and PhD will do that. We are establishing a transportation university in Daura. We are making sure that we have manpower to take over from the Chinese. We are trying to localise railway technology,” he said.

On railway safety, the former Governor of Rivers State said;

“The first thing we address about railway is safety because once it happens, a lot of persons will die. Each coach for now contains 87 persons, if we multiply it by 10 coaches, imagine the amount of persons that will die. No driver will move if there is a safety problem. It is the same thing with our tracks. We watch our tracks.
“Someone told me that he saw on social media that they shot at the train. I didn’t reply because that is not true. There are air force planes following the train as it is going. There is a police vehicle on the side. There are policemen in the vehicle and when anything happens, they report to the minister even when there is a stop.”

Reno Omokri is of the opinion that unlike other ethnic tribes, the Igbos are communal and would have rallied round to fulfill the terms and conditions of publisher and activist, Omoyele Sowore's bail.

Recall that Sowore who is standing trial for treasonable charges filed against him by the Federal government, was in court yesterday October 21st where the judge revealed that no one has come forward to stand as his surety for his bail conditions to be fulfilled.

Reacting to this development, Reno Omokri via a post shared on his Instagram page, said the bail conditions for IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, were more stringent than Sowore's, but they were all met because the Igbos rallied round for one of their own. Read his post below
 Despite the stringent bail conditions set for Nnamdi Kanu, Igbos wasted no time fulfilling it. Sowore’s bail terms are nowhere near as tough as Nnamdi Kanu’s, yet no one has stood for him. Yet, while he was in detention and court, many people were talking tough in his defence. It just tells you a lot about Igbo communal spirit as compared to other ethnic nationalities. If Sowore was Igbo, he would have been out of jail by now.
An Igbo Senator, Enyinnaya Abaribe, risked jail, put his Senatorial office on the line, to stand as surety for Kanu. Are you trying to tell me that none of Sowore’s kinsmen have ordinary ?50 million? I am yet to see a people who love themselves like the Igbo.
In America, believe it or not, Igbo unions give new comers loans to set up their own businesses. I have seen news stories of destitute Nigerians abroad who need assistance. That can never happen to an Igbo. Other Igbos in that community will rally round and rehabilitate him or her. Let us all learn that self love from Ndi’Igbo and Nigeria will be better for it'' he wrote

Justin Trudeau re-elected as Prime Minister of Canada
Justin Trudeau has won a second term as Canada’s prime minister after the country’s federal election, but his narrow victory means he will lead a minority government that will be forced to depend on other parties to govern.

The Liberals were victorious in 146 out of 304 electoral districts that had reported results by about 10:30pm Toronto time on Monday, according to the national broadcaster CBC. Trudeau needed to win 170 seats to secure a second majority government.

In his victory speech, Justin Trudeau told Canadians that even if they didn't vote for him, the Liberal Party works for all people of Canada

US President, Donald Trump has also congratulated Trudeau for a wonderful and hard fought victory with a Tweet that reads, 'Congratulations to Justin Trudeau  on a wonderful and hard fought victory. Canada is well served. I look forward to working with you toward the betterment of both of our countries!'.

Trudeau, 47, was endorsed by Barack Obama in the last days of the campaign, but his standing as one of the few remaining progressive leaders in a major democracy was undermined by the emergence of blackface images, and lingering criticism of his handling of a major corruption inquiry.

Ahead of the vote, polls showed him neck-and-neck with the Conservative leader Andrew Scheer. But with neither of the main parties reaching the number of seats needed for a parliamentary majority, Canada is headed towards a minority government, and Trudeau will be forced to co-operate with smaller left-of-centre parties to govern.
