  10. A top Nigerian scammer known in the black community as “Starboy” was arrested yesterday along with five friends all from the west African country. Antonio Joscarlos, along with a Thai woman called Sukanya, had used a fake Facebook profile to con middle aged Thai men looking for love. They used a picture of a beautiful female US soldier and pretended to be her – they were chatting to 38 men at the time of their arrest at JP Smart Condominium in Pak Kret. Victims were persuaded in the “romance scam” to send money to their accounts. Taken into evidence were a computer notebook, ten phones, bankbooks, cash and other valuables. Also arrested yesterday were five friends of “Starboy” – all Nigerians – running investment scams tricking Thai couples. Three million baht in funds was found as part of this subsequent investigation. The crime led to connections in Senegal. Leading the crackdown ordered by prime minister Prayut Chan-ocha and deputy Prawit Wongsuwan is acting tourism police chief Surachet Hakpan who said that romance scams and bogus investment schemes were causing a lot of trouble for the country. The former relied on those looking for love while the latter relied on people’s greed. All those arrested have been initially detained on fraud and false pretenses charges though Daily News reported that false imprisonment and assault may be added to the rap sheet for some of them. The crackdown is targeting mostly those in the African community using tourism as a cover for illegal activities.

  15. Where Is TSTV?!

    The hype that greeted the newly launched satellite Television, TSTV seem to have died down as my Nigerian still remain in oblivion as to the status or fate of the provider. TSTV which announced its services in September and had its official launch on October 1, was well received by many Nigerians who saw them as the messiah that would break the monopoly of satellite TV in Nigeria. It launch on Oct. 1, with a promise to offer pay as you go services and lower rates for its programmes including the highly favoured football channels that air European League matches, got a large number of Nigerians interested. In their joy, many went on to mock other existing providers, taunting them that their "reign of exploitation" was over. However, the first disappointment came when TSTV extended sales of its decoder to Nov. 1, an action which didn't seem to debase their fans who went about on social media and other platforms reaffirming their support for the new provider. Even an allegation of attempting to illegally air sports channels from bEIN did not seem to shake the Nigerian supporters. Two months after its official launch and one month after its commencement of sales, many Nigerians are still asking: "Where is TSTV"? Some of the Nigerian who reacted on social media (twitter) also sought to know if the provider had kept to its promise to deliver certain choice services. Read below some of the comments on Twitter:
  16. Media personality, Daddy Freeze has in his usual routine, come for Nigerian pastors - this time around, he says most pastors are into the work of God just because of the money involved. Freeze says Nigerian pastors left their professions because they can't earn as much unlike in the ministry. In a video shared on Youtube, he said, "There are many fake pastors because of monetization; that pastor who cursed me is an architect, the one at BankyW's wedding is a doctor. "Many of them are leaving profitable field because ministry is a more profitable field. "Monetization has made fake pastors come into two fold, it has made real pastors preach false messages. "Every doctrine in Nigeria has been monetized, you hear pastors say this year you will find your 'apollos' "Apollos in the Bible was increase in word of God not referring to sowing, Matthew 13;7 this verse speaks of seed of faith not money; those that twist this to you are thieves. There's nothing spiritual about those criticizing me, the only spirituality in them is the ability to twist your brain. OAP Freeze also countered speaking in tongues in Nigerian Pentecostal churches, describing it as fake. He added, "Speaking in tongues in Nigeria Pentecostal churches is fake but speaking in tongues is not fake. "When speaking in tongues, you should speak in languages not in tongues that no one can understand. 1Cor 14:26-28; someone must interpret tongues...There is no speaking in tongues without an interpreter "Interpretation of tongues is missing in today's pentecostal churches , if anyone speaks in tongues one or two should speak in tongues one at a time not multitude.That is falsehood 1Cor 14:23 is what pastors used to confuse you, they tell you tongues is an unknown language which carnal mind cannot understand. Everyone speaking in tongues in the church is false because it is a gift that everyone does not receive. "I'm a preacher that speaks from history and bible not sentiments like others; that's why I can't say God told me to pay titheS like they say. "I would tell you what God kept in bible not what God told me." Watch: Download Video

  21. The Peoples Democratic Party has said former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar will not vote at its December 9 national convention, which holds at the Eagle Square, Abuja. It says this is because of the provision of the party's constitution that deals with new entrants into the party. However, the party said Atiku would be allowed to speak at the convention. The Publicity Secretary of the National Caretaker Committee of the PDP, Dayo Adeyeye, who spoke with journalists at a press briefing in Abuja on Wednesday, said the party's constitution should be used as a guide on the issue. "All you need to do is pick up the constitution of the party and see whether Atiku is qualified to vote or not," Adeyeye stated. When pressed further, he said, "First of all, I can tell you that we are happy with Atiku coming back to the PDP. It is very exciting for all of us. It is a good omen to everybody in the PDP. "He was one of the founding fathers, one of those who built this party and he is coming back home. His room was never occupied, so we have opened it for him. "He will be part of this convention. He will even make a speech at the convention but he may not be voting at the convention." Chapter 2 (Part 1) of the party's constitution deals with admission of members into the party. On Procedure for rejoining, Sections 8 and 9 explain, "A person, who desires to rejoin the party after leaving it shall apply to his Ward Secretary for re-admission; and unless given a waiver by the National Working Committee, he willbe placed on probation for a period of not less than one year. "Subject to the provision of Section 8(b), a member on probation shall have the right to attend all meetings of the party, but shall not be entitled to vote at such meetings, nor shall he be eligible to contest elective office on the platform of the party." One of Punch correspondents gathered that the party was planning to amend the above sections at the convention. The expected amendment will place returnees on six months probation before they could contest any position or be voted for. Atiku, who was a foundation member of the party, defected to the All Progressives Congress in 2014, claiming that the then opposition party would be his "last bus stop." However, he left the APC about a week ago, and returned to the PDP on Sunday. Meanwhile, Adeyeye has alleged that some agents of the Federal Government were planning to disrupt the party's national convention. He said the former ruling party had what he described as credible information that some overzealous elements in the government were planning to disrupt the convention. Stating that there was nothing to show that President Muhammadu Buhari was part of the plot, the spokesman pleaded with the President to intervene and caution the unnamed aides. Adeyeye added, "They have been trying every effort but we are happy that we have no information that it is coming from the very top. "But some overzealous elements in the administration are bent on disrupting it. It is very credible information. They are doing everything possible to make sure that this convention is disrupted. "They are afraid that if the PDP should hold a successful convention, that their days in government are numbered. "By the time we hold this convention and our officers are elected and they take offices next year, there will be a floodgate of people even from the APC to the PDP. "This is credible information and that is why we are appealing to President Buhari to please rein in his aides. We have evidence that the President is aware of this. "It is happening and we are calling on him to do his own investigation and to call those who are trying to cause this problem to desist because it is capable not only of destroying this democracy but also capable of destroying the country." In another development, the Chairman of the Convention Planning Committee, who is also the Governor of Delta State, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has summoned

He enjoined corps members to respect the culture of their host communities and shun unauthorized journeys.

  25. The Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Wednesday dispelled the rumour that the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) would be increased. He gave this explanation while addressing state house correspondents at the end of the Federal Executive Council (FEC), which was presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo. He said that the Minister of Petroleum (State), Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, would have been at the briefing but had to go for an urgent meeting in order to resolve the petroleum scarcity in the country. “Government has no intention at all to increase the pump price of PMS; the minister has assured the council that there is enough products for the next one month even to end of January,’’ the minister stated. According to him, there is usually more demand for petrol product during the yuletide which explains the scarcity of the product during the period. Mohammed said that the council had given a marching order to the Petroleum Minister (State) that the fuel crisis in the country should not last beyond the weekend. He said that the minister had given assurance to ensure that the problem was contained. On digitization, the minister said that the migration from analogue was on course. He said that the digital switch over (DSO) platform in Ilorin would soon be inaugurated while those in Kaduna, Osogbo and Enugu were also ready for inauguration. “We hope that in the next couple of weeks we are going to inaugurate these DSOs. “The idea is that in the next few weeks we will inaugurate one DSO in one state in each of the regions of the country,” he said. Mohammed observed that there were challenges the country was working on especially the issue of set up boxes as the government was not in a position to subsidise 40 million set up boxes. “We are looking at bringing down the cost of the boxes at the same time not lowering the quality of those boxes. “I think the set up manufacturers are working very hard to bring the cost from 40 dollars to 20 dollars and we are also working with the governors and local government chairmen to see how we can collaborate. “They can buy more boxes while we use our technology to ensure efficient payment of television licenses,” the minister said.
  26. A policeman attached to the Igbuzo Police Division, identified simply as Sergeant Abua, is allegedly on the run after shooting a student at the Delta State Polytechnic, Sofia Ogogo, and a civil servant, Victor Emeagwai, at a checkpoint in the community. The victims were in a Toyota Corolla, driven by an estate agent, Jerry Akinlabi, when the incident happened. Ogogo and Emeagwai are Akinlabi’s girlfriend and friend respectively. A team of five policemen, including Abua, had flagged down Ogogo at a checkpoint along Igbuzo Market. One of the policemen, identified as Nwokolo, was said to have demanded money from Akinlabi and the driver told him that he did not have N200 to give him. Nwokolo reportedly said he would take one of the N1,000 notes Jerry had on him. As Akinlabi drove off from the checkpoint, Abua reportedly shot at the car and bullets pierced the back of the vehicle, hitting Ogogo, who sat at the back seat. The bullet also grazed the back of Emeagwai, who was at the passenger’s seat. Akinlabi told our correspondent that four cops, including the team leader, one ASP Akhabue, were detained by the police, while Abua evaded arrest. He said, “On Sunday, November 17, 2017, I was driving to the Igbuzor Market and on getting to a checkpoint, I met the policemen. We knew one another some months ago when I had an issue concerning a property at the station. I sounded the horn to greet them, but they did not respond. “One of them used his gun to hit the boot and I reversed. He said I wanted to beat the checkpoint. I told him that I assumed that they knew me very well and apologised. He demanded money. I wanted to give him N100 or N200, but it was N1,000 notes I had on me and I explained to him. “He said, ‘Am I too small to collect N1,000?’ When I declined to give him N1,000, he asked me to pull over, which I did. As the argument over N1,000 got heated, I entered my car and drove off. What I heard next was three gunshots aimed at my car. “A bullet pierced into the car, hit my girlfriend’s body, came out and hit my friend in the back.” The 22-year-old indigene of Oyo State said he took the victims to a general hospital in Igbuzo, from where Ogogo was referred to the Federal Medical Centre, Asaba. He said he called a senior police officer at Asaba who notified the state Commissioner of Police of the incident. He said, “The CP and the DPO of the Igbozo Police Station came to the FMC and deposited N100,000, but I have spent much more than that. Meanwhile, the policeman who shot at us had gone to drop the gun at the station and fled. The other four policemen were detained at the command headquarters. My friend and I wrote our statements there.” Akinlabi explained that a police officer asked him to drop his car key to aid investigation. He added that he handed over the car key, but activated the steering lock because he suspected foul play. He said he met with the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Zone 5, Benin, Edo State, who assigned a policeman to take his statement, adding that the policeman came down to the police command, Asaba, the following day. “As I was returning from Zone 5 on Monday, I received a call from the Investigating Police Officer at the police headquarters in Asaba and he asked for the steering key. The IPO and a policeman came down to the hospital and I told them I would have to look for the key when I got home. “The policeman sent from Zone 5 invited my friend to the police headquarters in Asaba to write his statement too. When he got there, he saw some policemen moving the car. He called to ask me if I gave them the key to unlock the steering and I said no. When I called the IPO, he confirmed what my friend said and he told me that there was no cause for alarm.” He said the command returned his car washed, with the bullet holes on the vehicle covered and painted, lamenting that he had not heard from the command and zone 5. Akinlabi’s girlfriend, Ogogo, who spoke to PUNCH Metro from the hospital, said she was on the telephone when the bullet hit her. “That was the last thing I remembered until I found myself at the hospital,” she added. Emeagwai urged the police authorities not to sweep the case under the carpet, saying the policemen must be punished. He said, “I don’t see any reason for the shooting. I have been going to the FMC to treat the gunshot injury for about three weeks now. The policemen should not go scot-free.” Harrison Gwamnishu, the Coordinator of Behind Bars, a rights group, which Akinlabi contacted on the matter, said the group would institute a legal action against the police. He said, “We want to charge the case to court as a civil matter. It is barbaric. Why did the police wash the bloodstains in the car and covered the bullet holes without the consent of the owner?” The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, said the policemen would be brought to book if found culpable after investigation. He said, “The case is being investigated. However, our utmost concern is that the injured victim gets proper treatment. The Area Commander and the DPO of the division in question are involved in the matter. “The case is being investigated by Zone 5. Where somebody is absent from duty for 21 days without any reason, we declare such a person a deserter. So, there is no anxiety that the policeman is on the run. Rest assured that the right thing will be done.”
  27. Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court has retired voluntarily from service. Earlier in the year, Justice Ademola was discharged and acquitted by an FCT high court on charges of money laundering and abuse of office. This followed a raid on the homes of some judges by the Department Of State Services (DSS), which termed the operation a sting operation. In January, an official of the DSS had testified that the sum of 38 million Naira, two pump action rifles and some foreign currencies were recovered from his house during their search at his residence in October. Justice Ademola, his wife and Mr. Joe Agi, a senior lawyer subsequently faced trial on allegations of bribery and illegal possession of firearms. Justice Ademola did not give reasons for his retirement.
