  1. 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.”
  2. The family of Bajulaiye in Lagos have sued the police for allegedly aiding their tenant, Mr. Isaac Anumudu, to forcefully take over their property on Victoria Island and detaining four of their members. In a suit they filed before the Lagos State High Court in Igbosere, the family claimed that the police invaded their property known as No. 8, Agoro Odiyan Street, Off Adeola Odeku Street, Victoria Island, at the instance of Anumudu. The family, who claimed that the property was bequeathed to them by their late father, Mr. C.O. Bajulaiye, said they were bewildered at “the strange claim to ownership of the building” by Anumudu and his company, Crown Star Ltd. Their lawyer, Mr. Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, is contending that the detention of the family members is illegal; adding that the statutory duty of the police does not extend to tenancy-related matters. The family, through Adegboruwa, are seeking a court declaration that the arrest and detention of their members by the police “constitutes a flagrant violation of the applicants’ fundamental rights guaranteed under sections 35, 38, 40 and 41 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999.”
  3. The head office of the Leadership Newspapers located in Utako, Abuja has been surrounded by security operatives over 100 million Naira debt to one Senator Isah from Niger State. The operatives working under a court order has been mandated to shut down the office and claim all Leadership property including all vehicles found within the premises belonging to the Newspapers. Already, about six vehicles have been towed away by the assigned officers. Security operatives, prior to the raid of the office had equally visited his home and carted away important equipment in his house. The Senator had about 7 years ago approached the court over a libellous publication against him by the newspapers. He, however, won the case and was awarded 100 million Naira. DAILY POST was reliably informed that the official vehicle of the General Editor has equally been towed away by the officers. Staff of the Newspapers are currently working for free as they are being owed for more than 20 months. Report says the Publisher, Nda Isaiah rakes in millions on a daily bases but intentionally refuses to pay his staff.
  4. The Nigerian Army has replaced the theatre commander of the troops fighting the Boko Haram sect, Ibrahim Attahiru, after half a year following a string of insurgency attacks despite years of official claims the group has almost been defeated. The shake-up underscores the fragility of the security situation in Nigeria’s North East where the conflict with Boko Haram is now in its ninth year, despite assertions by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration that it is on its last legs. Attahiru is being replaced by Major Gen. Rogers Nicholas in the wake of a series of “embarrassing” attacks, two military sources told Reuters. They said the conduct of the war against the insurgents is now being reviewed. “The attacks that occurred during Attahiru’s command included the kidnapping of members of an oil prospecting team which led to at least 37 people being killed in July, and deadly assaults on the towns of Magumeri, Biu and Madagali,” the sources said.
  5. The founder and director of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, is incredibly successful and rich. He has achieved amazing results thanks to his programming talent and brilliant entrepreneurial skills. The net worth of the businessman is estimated to be $73.6 billion in 2017 (Forbes). This colossal sum has earned him the fifth position on the ranking of the richest people in the world. From this article, you will learn about Mark Zuckerberg’s house and cars. Mark Zuckerberg house in Palo Alto Mark once published a presentation on his Facebook page in which he talked about his new invention – artificial intelligence for the smart house system. The video showed several rooms with amazing features and many people were impressed. However, contrary to what many would expect, Mark and his family live very modestly. He bought his house in Palo Alto for $7 million. The young billionaire and his family have been known to live there for a long time. Just check out this modest and cozy patio with a swimming pool. It seems like a great place for a family to rest. One entrepreneur wanted to buy houses in the neighborhood to build elite mansions and sell them to the rich who would like to live next to the CEO of Facebook. To prevent this from happening, Zuckerberg had to buy his neighboring houses for $30 million. He did not want to demolish the existing houses to build one huge super-mansion. After all, the neighboring houses were not bought for expansion purposes or even for investment purposes (even though this was considered at the moment of purchase). The funny thing is that the previous owners he bought the houses from did not move out. They still live in the houses that now belong to Zuckerberg, but only as tenants rather than owners. “Smart assistant” in Zuckerberg’s house In a video presentation, viewers got the opportunity to take a look at not just Mark Zuckerberg’s new invention, but the insides of his home as well. It was revealed that it took him a whole year to develop the innovative system he showed. Mark called it “smart assistant” Jarvis in honor of the cyber butler from the films about Iron Man. In the video, the founder of Facebook clearly demonstrated all the possibilities of Jarvis. The system allows him manage the house using voice or text commands of all members of the Zuckerberg family. The artificial intelligence can plan meetings and follow daily routines. With simple voice commands, Jarvis can open curtains, turn on lights or music. The intelligent helper can also make a simple breakfast like toasts, or wake the children up in the morning. To show all the possibilities of artificial intelligence, Zuckerberg asked Jarvis to “play a good Nickelback song”, but the “clever assistant” refused to do so because “Nickelback does not have any good song.” One of the main features of Jarvis is its ability to recognize the faces of visitors who are standing at the doorstep of the house. Also, it can monitor the movement of Mark’s little daughter and warn parents in case of danger. At the end of the video, Zuckerberg noted that the system has not yet been fully refined and called on his subscribers to leave interesting ideas about its further development in the comments. Mark Zuckerberg’s house interior Let us take a small virtual tour of the billionaire’s house. You will see that there are really no golden toilet bowls and other elements of excessive luxury. You can however find a convenient terrace and garden furniture in his yard, where Mark can communicate with guests, drink tea, read a book, etc. An important member of the family is in the photo below. This funny pet enjoys all the perks of the house. Mark has no banquet halls and servants; family members prepare food and eat in a modest, neat kitchen. Living room – this is a nice place for pleasant leisure family time and conversations. In the bathroom, you can find everything necessary for comfort, but there is absolutely nothing superfluous. It is decorated in pleasant light colors. Here one can not only clean their body, but also clear their thoughts. You can choose to either take a shower or have a bath. Again we see that convenience is what matters most for the owner of this house. In conclusion, we can say that Mark’s house in Palo Alto is modest, convenient, cozy and has a special smart assistant. House in San Francisco Mark Zuckerberg also has landed property in San Francisco. This house which is located in Liberty Hill is worth $10 million and covers an area of 7980 square feet. Mark had to spend $1.6 million for the renovation of this house which he remodeled in April 2013. According to eyewitnesses, about 50 builders worked on this mansion. They prevented the residents of the street from parking and were quite noisy. Local citizens argue that sidewalks were rummaged to ensure communications. Journalists managed to talk with the construction contractor who admitted that the scale of work was very huge. He however explained that the problems being experienced by the residents due to the work being carried out on the house were greatly exaggerated. He stressed that his subordinates were doing everything possible to keep the district clean and to inform neighbors about all the works. Property on Kauai island Mark Zuckerberg once sued hundreds of residents of the Hawaiian island of Kauai in an attempt to evict them and get an opportunity to relax on the beach with his family. In 2014, the billionaire spent $100 million to buy real estate here, and later purchased the nearby areas for another $30 million, but the locals still have the right to move through his land. The companies representing the interests of Zuckerberg appealed to the Kauai court with a request to initiate forced sale at an auction. The billionaire was ready to buy up the land at an inflated price. His lawyer, Keoni Shultz, noted that the Hawaiian people have lived on the same plot for many generations and occupy a small piece of the area. It is hard to even tell that they formerly owned vast territories. Zuckerberg published a post on Facebook in which he said that he did not force the local people to leave their lands and insisted that many should be pleased to learn about the existence of their property and, in addition, to get good money for it. In June 2016, Zuckerberg began to build a two-meter wall around his property on Kauai. This angered his neighbors and residents of the island who did not like that the massive structure would spoil the landscape. One57 Penthouse At the time of purchase, this house was worth about $90 million. It is located in a glass tower high above the center of Manhattan. Mark’s huge apartment occupies the 89th and 90th floors of the building. Mark Zuckerberg cars Mark Zuckerberg is one of the wealthiest people in the world of high technology; he could easily buy himself the best models of Ferrari, Bugatti, Land Rover etc. However, this man adheres to the principle of “a car is not a luxury but a means of transportation”. He has 4 cars at the moment; let us talk more about each of them. 1. Acura TSX This is a mid-size car equipped with an automatic transmission and 5 speeds. The engine has 4 cylinders and a volume of 2.4 liters. The vehicle is capable of speeding up to 137 miles per hour and has a high horsepower brake. Zuckerberg loves inconspicuous cars and does not want to attract attention on ordinary working days. However, if you read further, you will see that he has at least one luxury automobile worthy of his billionaire status. 2. Volkswagen MK6 GTI This black car produced in 2014 was significantly modified. Many of its options have been improved but it is still difficult to call this mechanism a car of the elite class. It is equipped with alloy wheels, a manual transmission and other additions that the owner put in himself. Its maximum speed is 238 kilometers per hour and it can acceleration to 100 kilometers in 6.9 seconds. Volkswagen representatives were extremely surprised that Mark decided to buy their car and gave him a present. Presumably, this vehicle costs $30 thousand. 3. Pagani Huayra Mark Zuckerberg purchased one of the first models of this car to enter the US. This is a first-class vehicle with 730 horsepower. The dual-clutch transmission passes power to the rear wheels. A high amount of carbon fiber was used to manufacture this car. The maximum speed is 231 miles per hour. It is believed that Zuckerberg updated his fleet with this novelty for only $1.3 million. Just 3.2 seconds is enough to hit a speed of 60 miles per hour in this car, which is somewhat better than that of the previous car. 4. Honda FIT Now let us return to a more modest car. Zuckerberg is also the owner of a silver Honda FIT 2015. This vehicle is fairly affordable for any representative of the middle class. The maximum speed is 118 miles per hour. The 4-cylinder engine has 117 horsepower. It has a manual transmission with 5 steps. After seeing all the properties mentioned above, it is easy to believe that Mark has nothing else to strive for since he already has almost everything a person needs. However, we wish him more success and multiplied wealth. He is a good example for all businessmen.
  6. Vasudev Nanaiah, a 37-year-old Indian man who actually made a career out of, taking off with more than 120 TV sets from hotels over a period of four months, has been nabbed. According to Oddity Central, Vasudev Nanaiah was arrested last month and charged with 21 counts of theft after wreaking havoc among budget hotels in southern India by stealing an impressive number of TV sets from the rooms he booked. The TV pilferer would reserve the rooms be telephone, and always make a small advance payment, informing the staff that he would be staying there for several days, in order to avoid suspicion. Nanaiah always arrived with bulky suitcases in tow, and in case they proved too small for the targeted TVs, he would simply go out and buy new ones. Police say that the Indian thief would confuse hotel staff by repeatedly walking in and out of the establishment carrying his suitcase, on various pretexts, that they never suspected that at one point he would just walk out and not come back. "He would walk in and out of the hotel on some pretext so many times that the hotel reception would not realize when he had walked out with the TV set never to return," police deputy commissioner Chetan Singh Rathor said. Nanaiah never raised any suspicion in hotel personnel, who describe him as "decent and well-behaved." Interestingly, the sticky-fingered hotel guest was first arrested in October, after being caught red-handed, but was released on bail. Instead of changing his ways, the man wasted no time picking up where he'd left off, getting back to business within days of his release. Unfortunately for Vasudev, police were keeping an eye on him, and busted him again last month while trying to fence some of the stolen TV sets. "We arrested him earlier this month when he was trying to sell TV sets to a shopkeeper, who alerted the police," Bangalore police said, adding that about 20 TV sets had been recovered. The investigation also revealed that Nanaiah had stolen about 100 TVs from hotels in the neighboring states of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. Nanaiah told police that making off with the sets was "relatively low risk and easy." Stealing 120 hotel TV sets in just 4 months sounds pretty impressive but it appears that it's only the latest achievement in a very long and lucrative criminal career. Vasudev Nanaiah admitted to stealing hotel TV's for over 12 years, and Bangalore police sources believe that he may have stolen and sold over 1,000 TVs during that period. If found guilty by the court, Nanaiah's days of his thieving days may finally come to an end, or at least put on hiatus for a long time. He may also be ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluation.
  7. A Church member attacked a Facebook user for not agreeing that her pastor changed someone with Sickle cell SS to AA. Gwen Divy Ifeson who shared the screenshots of her chat with the other lady – revealed that she told the lady that there is no way someone who has been declared as SS can become AA all of a sudden as she even tried to explain to her the cause of such results. Rather than end the argument there, she sent the below messages to Gwen Divy Ifeson via Facebook inbox;
