The Lagos state Police Command has arrested a father of two, who specializes in using social media platforms, particularly Facebook, to lure gullible la
dies to hotels, where he sedates, rapes and dispossesses them of their valuables.
According to the Vanguard, the suspect, Oluwole Falaseye, 30, uses the pseudo-name Nipheme Ajanaku, and poses as an Abuja-based bank manager on Facebook.
Falaseye quickly gets acquainted with his target victim, and after a while he organizes a meeting in a hotel in the Amuwo-Odofin area of Lagos state.
He used this ploy to invite a lady identified simply as Mercy for a birthday party in Opera Hotel, at Rasaq Junction, Festac Town, last Friday.
However, Mercy, a student at Auchi Polytechnic, Edo State, was unable to attend the “party” in Lagos, so she told her cousin, Tinuke, an undergraduate at The Polytechnic, Ibadan, Oyo State, to represent her.
Atinuke gave a description of what happened at the hotel.
Below is the statement released by TRIPOB, the new faction;
At an emergency meeting convened by some disaffected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Monday, August 22, 2016 in Aba, Abia state, it was resolved that due to the rigid and fatalistic position of the Nnamdi Kanu led IPOB, several of us with like minds shall breakaway and form The Rebranded Indigenous People of Biafra or TRIPOB.
TRIPOB now sees the Biafra question from a different perspective. Biafra will now become to us a powerful metaphor for change, development and greatness of the Igbos inside a united Nigeria, where the South East axis will be a utopia from the sheer determination borne out of the Biafra metaphor.
We believe in being a part of a united Nigeria, and a new way of thinking, where the victim mentality will no longer be acceptable.
"The High Command of the Niger Delta Avengers condemns the entire security reports linking our forces to the killing of military troops in Nembe Bayelsa state. NDA still wonders when this charade and acts of desperation of the Nigeria military by always linking crimes in the southern part of Nigeria to our fighters will stop. It is a shame that Operations Delta Safe is still employing the old habits of deliberately dinning and wining with unaudited intelligence from political thugs, political paymasters and enemies of the Niger Delta to perpetuate their continuous funding and relevance by catching in on the hunger in the land. One question for the commander of Operation Delta Safe! Who are the people perpetuating the ongoing illegal oil bunkerings in the Niger Delta at the moment? Because we have both video and pictorial evidences of your troops serious involvement in the pervasive crude oil thefts. We have records of how much profit you collect and make per day from these atrocities in the Niger Delta.
Man who named dog Buhari: Comedian Alibaba wants Buhari to call the IGP an Attorney general to order.
What he said:
President Mohammadu Buhari is a respected man. He is a sitting president. Nothing should be done to discredit him. Just as nothing should be done to rubbish his name. But to all his dogged supporters who are screaming blue mother because of the dog issue, hear this, this is the same path people who messed up Jonathan's presidency took.
You can not tell me that in the over weeks or so that this issue of name dog or not name dog started, the people who work with or work for PMB have not brought it to his notice. Is that what is bothering this country? How many Fulani herdsmen who have killed several Nigerians have been swiftly brought to justice like this dog naming guy?

Betty Iraboh the CEO of Genevieve magazine, had written about domestic violence and women in marriages/relationships. People commented, bu the one that caught people's eye was a comment made by Toke Makinwa's estranged hubby, Maje Ayida. He wants to know Betty's views about men in abusive relationships too. and this just made people want to put one and one together to deduce that maybe Maje was just a victim of domestic violence too.
Below is what Betty wrote:
#TalkTuesday Marriage by fire by force??? Sometime ago, a young friend of mine found herself in an abusive marriage. Initially,her husband never laid a finger on her, he let his tongue do the job. He called her all sorts of names and lashed out at her with foul words. He would always dare her to pack and go and would always chuckle "let's see where an old cargo with 3 kids like you will go; who will even look at you?".
She did try to leave a couple of times but somewhat returned to him after he came to ask her back; promising he would be a better husband. Then the circle of abuse will start all over again. One day however, he went too far when he tried to strangle her for daring to fight back. Bruised and battered, her parents came and took her and the 3 children away.
Lady narrates how an Omega Fire Ministry deliverance pastor shamelessly flirted with her during a supposed retreat program.
Continue to read the full story below:
In 2013 my mum told me i needed deliverance because i refused to act like a "christian" she took me to a pastor of Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) he said i will do a retreat with him for one month so i went back home to pack my stuff.
This man would always enter my room without knocking. His hands would linger around my breasts when he hugs me...i was uncomfortable but i tried to bring my "mind out of the gutter".
We used to have night prayers and he would prolong the prayers till his heavily pregnant wife got tired and he'll encourage her to go to bed and rest...once she leaves he starts to tell me how much he loves me and how i don't need deliverance because there is nothing wrong with me,and how i am a nice girl who her parents misunderstood.
Mr. John Kerry, the American Secretary of State, President Barack Obama's confidante and Mrs. Hilary Clinton's successor in office, came to Nigeria the other day.
The first meeting that he had was with the Sultan of Sokoto, who is the supreme leader of the Fulani Caliphate, the spiritual leader of all the Muslims of the north and the man who said, only last week, that "Christians commit wicked acts and crimes against humanity" and that "the wearing of the hijab is the right of every Muslim".
The second was with the the 19 northern governors, 16 of whom are Muslims.
The third was our Muslim-fanatic and sharia-loving President who has refused to call his kinsmen, the Fulani herdsmen and militants, to order or to arrest and prosecute even one of them for mass murder and genocide.
On the very same day that all this was happening the Islamic Development Bank visited the President and opened their first office in Nigeria.
The government has also quietly put two separate pieces of legislation before the National Assembly for consideration which, if passed, would on the one hand legalise criminal sharia law and on the other give grazing land to the Fulani herdsmen in the Middle Belt and the south.
