The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Thursday, October 30, 2014 arraigned an undergraduate of the University of Benin, Kenneth Rukewe Ebule before Justice E. F Ikponmwen of an Edo State High Court, sitting in Benin- City on a 6- count charge bordering on forgery, obtaining money by false pretence and possession of fraudulent documents.The accused person allegedly duped Sabine Albert, a German, of the sum of $12, 088, 75 through fraudulent claims.
Rukewe, 30, a final year student of Computer and Statistics at the University of Benin, was arrested by officials of a new generation bank on May 28, 2014 in Benin City and handed over to the EFCC for further investigation.
Troubles started for him when Albert alleged that within two months after he had internet contact with him, Rukewe fraudulently obtained the sum of $12,088,75 (Twelve Thousand Eighty Eight Dollars and Seventy Five Cents) from him.
Rukewe allegedly posed to Albert as an English businessman on transit in Nigeria. He gave his name as Bob Albert and told his victim that he had a contract with a Nigerian company worth €1.200, 000.00 and that he needed a loan to facilitate a transaction with the company. He promised to pay back the loan and even doubled it because he was sure of pulling through the transactions. He also told Albert that he had complications and suffered a robbery attack.
Rukewe also falsely told Albert that, a levy of of N1,975,861 (One Million, Nine Hundred and Seventy Five Thousand, Eight Hundred and Sixty One Naira only) was imposed on him by the Federal Inland Revenue Service for the release of his International Passport, and a cheque worth 1, 200,000 Euros. He also pleaded for a flight ticket to London.
Based on all these, Albert offered to loan him the money by sending it through Western Union, only to discover that he had been scammed.
Investigation also revealed that the suspect had defrauded other German nationals to the tune of $110,975.00USD (One Hundred and Ten thousand, Nine Hundred and Seventy Five United States Dollars) between May 2013 and January 2014.
Eedris analysed the kind of music making waves now and as well condemned the young stars for singing about nothing more boob, butts and drinks.
According to him, “for me, music is a call from God; He asked me to speak to the people, I speak for the voiceless. I don’t know about the other guys, but for me the music they play today is always talking about boobs, booty and all that. For me I think music should be educative, it should be a platform where you can educate people.
Some wouldn’t know what education is all about but when they listen to music they learn. If you listen to my music 12years ago, I talked about the ills in the society.”
Do you remember Benita Okojie? She is now a grown up lady, talks about marriage & Bleaching in new interview
Growing up “It was fun, very normal. I played with the children in my neighbourhood, went to school and played with sand like a typical Naija child until I turned 10 and released Osemudiamen in the Child of God 1 album. A lot changed. I was noticed everywhere I went and it took a while to get used to all that attention as a child, I started getting invites to sing at events, I was also travelling a lot and meeting people. I never imagined I would meet but thank God for my parents and siblings. They were and still are a huge support and source of encouragement for me. Oh and I still did my chores at home o!”
Unforgettable childhood experience “The first time I was mobbed after an event. I was out with my dad and people were running after the car and screaming my name. I was terrified! I didn’t know why they surrounded our vehicle and were making faces through the window. I remember crying and asking my dad why they were running after us."
What inspired her recently released hit track ‘JESU N’ABBA “Jesu n’Abba is actually a song we take during morning devotion at home dating as far back as the cosy inside of my grandfather’s house far away in Uromi, Edo state. Jesu n’Abba means ‘Jesus my Father, it is dawn, please protect me in your mercies today/tonight’.
The erratic security situation in Nigeria and the world inspired the song. It got to a point where mothers would go to bed without an idea where their sons/daughters were and reports like this made my heart ache terribly.
And when your heart aches and you go on twitter to express how you feel but still see breaking news of one abduction, killing, etc somewhere in the world, you realize that there’s a lot to be grateful to God for and your intercession should go beyond 140 characters or less. Stop tweeting and start talking to The One who has supreme control of the events of the world.
The song is a heartfelt request to God for divine protection as the world grapples with the most insecure it has ever been in eons.”

According to a writer at Yahoo Travel, Lagos is the worst place he has ever visited on planet earth.
Lee Abbamonte, a “travel expert” is the man with this opinion. He is described as “the youngest American to visit all 193 member nations of the United Nations.”
Here’s what he says about Lagos:
“As far as I am concerned, Lagos, Nigeria, is the worst place on planet Earth. I’ve never experienced so much corruption in my life. It was just a horrific experience getting into the country. Crossing in from Benin, we got shaken down by the border guards. In addition to the multiple police shakedowns, the multiple ATM issues were enough for me; three times in two days, the machines dispensed the wrong amount of money. It was oppressive and hot. I couldn’t tell you one good thing about that place.”
Here’s the picture he used to illustrate his point:

Just like the Naija saying “Ashewo no be work,” so it is with this Osanle hustle. Na bad market…as bad as buying a gold-plated, customised iPhone 6 for your blind, illiterate mother who lives in the village. Yes, the time when it paid to be an Osanle and run to Jand to live here illegally is over o. Don’t be like Diana King and let anybody tell you lie-lie-lies. This place is tough so…allow me tell you why right now, Osanle no be work wey you wan send yourself for Jand.
1.There’s no longer a “taxi service” waiting for you
Usually, you've survived death by dehydration, getting shot or recruited by guerrillas, raped and prostituted, and you miraculously make it to the high seas, where you cross over to Europe. Well now, there’s a chance there won’t be any security officers battling to save your life if your rickety, overcrowded raft capsizes into the sea off the Italian or Spanish coast.
You see, Britain announced days ago that it will no longer support any search and rescue operations to stop Osanles like you drowning in the Mediterranean sea, so you will be On Your Own if you think there will be officers waiting to give you blankets and tea as you shiver in from the swimming session you decided to embark on.
Gone are the days when people will pack themselves on a small boat like Titus sardine and call the Italian authorities to come and pick them up. Because, along with other EU countries, what will happen from November 1 is that there will only be patrols within 30 miles of the Italian coast.
Meaning? Nobody will be moving all over the sea, looking for you. It is better you give yourself brain and migrate legally or, make sure your juju guy strong; otherwise, the drowning wey dey wait you is doing press-up. You go chop water well-well.

The Lagos State Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Develpoment, Oluwatoyin Ayinde, has said that the collapsed six-storey building of the Synagogue Church of All Nations has no government approval.
According to a new report on PUNCH, Ayinde stated this on Thursday while giving testimony before the coroner probing the cause of the building collapse. No fewer than 116 persons died while several others sustained varying degrees of injuries in the September 12, 2014 tragedy.
Ayinde said investigations conducted by his ministry after the accident revealed that though the six-
storey building had a record of survey, it however had no approval of the government. He said the only thing found in the records was an approval for the church’s main auditorium, adding that though that auditorium had now been raised to eight floors, the approval given was only for five floors.
The commissioner, who described all unapproved structures in the church’s premises as illegal, stated that there was the need to investigate what he described as unusual practices going on within the church premises. Ayinde wondered why, for instance, one of the columns supporting the additional three floors placed on the main auditorium had to take off from the top of a water tank.

Champions League star Neymar, 22, reportedly sent a private plane for Serbian model Soraja Vucelic to bring her to visit him in the Spanish city of Barcelona.

According to the Dailymail, Soraja allegedly flew to Neymar in Barcelona and stayed there for several days.

The model later published a photo in Neymar's Barcelona FC jersey in the aeroplane on her Instagram account.
Soraja Vucelic became popular in Balkans after participating in their Big Brother show.

The young girl who has had a nose job before, visited SP clinic on October 14 in a bid to have an enhanced bigger butt. An operation in which her wounds became infected after few days. This made her to go back for
a corrective surgery, or probably removing the silicon implants
Unfortunately, she was found dead on the operating table with a three inch-long stitched incision on her tail bone after medical staff found they were unable to bring her back to life. However, Thai officials investigating her death believe her operation had been delayed to ensure Joy had not eaten anything beforehand and that as a result, the operation began after the clinic’s legal closing time of 7pm.
Sompob Sansiri, who’s the doctor who carried out the surgery, has been arrested and accused of negligence due to his acts of carrying out operations at nights without license. He has been charged with recklessness causing death and might be facing 10 years jail term if found guilty.

Its good to know that we still have some men who are responsible when it comes to dishing out relationship advice but there is this saying that goes thus " We all have that one friend that gives the best relationship advice but still remains single" I just hope its not the case of Busayo.
Well read all he has to say belowLetter to the Ladies:
( Don't play the role of wife to a man who isn't your Husband) Say NO to Cohabitation! What is Cohabitation? This is an arrangement where 2 people who are not married live together in an emotional and sexually intimate relationship on a long term or permanent basis.. This is a Global PHENOMENON. Some Ladies get so carried away in the moment that they forget to plan for the future.. If you're living with a guy ; cooking, cleaning, ironing his clothes and supporting him emotionally over a long period of time he may not see the need to take you to the Church or Mosque to make it official because he always has everything he wants so why spend money on a wedding or
get tied down officially.. Most Ladies in this situation find it very hard to get out of because they are so socked in emotions and love that they are unable to think objectively.. Friends or Family members who try to talk them out of COHABITATION become enemies of progress or haters.. An elderly person once told me that any relationship that isn't ordained or verified by God won't last.. Let's help our sisters and friends who are in this situation.. I must also say that every guy has a choice, don't be fooled by excuses , postponing and procrastinating of marriage.. Force his hand into making a decision because when a child comes into a cohabitative setting it will be harder to start a new life and meet a man who is ready to step up.. May we not get hooked in Cohabitation.. Amen!
