The deadly gang’s targets were filling stations and bakeries in Kaduna, Nasarawa and Niger states, including Abuja FCT. One of its operations at a filling station (name withheld) in Masaka, close to Abuja, left in its wake the death of two persons with several others sustaining varying degrees of injuries.

Members of staff had closed for the day, with some of them changing into their clothes when the unexpected happened, following the deafening sounds of gunshots which made the fear-stricken staff to run into hiding.

This happened immediately after the manager of the filling station (name withheld), who had collected the proceeds of the day from the fuel attendants, was at the verge of entering his car parked within the premises of the filling station.

 The astonished manager was reportedly hit with the butt of a gun by one of the unwelcomed guests, while his colleagues fired sporadically.

Mat he RIP

Fr.Mbaka demoted by the Catholic church. Says he is going to suffer..


Tears flowed uncontrollably from parishioners and members of the Adoration Ministry as fiery Enugu Catholic priest and director of the ministry, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, yesterday bowed out of Christ the King Parish, GRA, Enugu, which he presided over as parish priest for 20 years.

The entire Enugu capital city also stood still as over 30 lorries accom­panied by thousands of his adoration faithful escorted him in a motorcade to his new parish, Our Lady Parish, Emene, a suburb of the capital city.

Mbaka’s transfer became a topical issue as a section of the society saw it as a punitive measure for his recent prophecies especially that of Decem­ber 31st 2014, when he predicted that former President Goodluck Jonathan would be defeated in the 2015 elections. This has however been dismissed by the church who explained that the transfer is a routine exercise done every six years by the bishop.

But Mbaka’s transfer as a parish priest to a resident priest, where he will serve under another priest, has raised eyebrows eliciting further comments from close observers.

Mbaka himself while handing over formally to his successor yesterday told those around that he was going to suffer, moving from a duplex to a room in his new parish but asked them not to worry that God has bigger plans for him.

The leadership of St. John’s Anglican Church, Agbarho in Ughelli North Local Government  Area of Delta State was thrown into confusion when the church vicar, scheduled to lead a team of  ministers at a funeral service, suddenly died after he was rushed to hospital.

Until his sudden death of cardiac arrest at Lily Hospital, Deco Road, Warri, the Anglican venerable, according to his first daughter, Oghenenyoreme Ogue, was suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure.


The hearse conveying the remains of the  woman whose burial the pastor was supposed to preside at, mourners, including a large delegation of the church’s Women Guild as well as members of the Anglican Fasting and Prayer Society, had gathered in front of the church building as early as 9.25 a.m. for the service billed for 10.00 a.m.

Queen, Okwukwe Nwoko, has been allegedly ejected from the palace over allegation of infidelity.
Okwukwe got married to His Royal Majesty, Obi Agbogidi Nwoko III, of Idumuje-Ugboko Kingdom in Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State in 2010 as the fourth wife but ended up being the only wife to the 90-year-old monarch as two of the previous wives were divorced while the third died some years ago.

Trouble started three years ago for her when members of the royal family, allegedly cham­pioned by the Crown Prince, Nonso Nwoko accused Okwuk­we of infidelity and consequently ejected her from the palace.

Members of the family con­tended that the monarch was not responsible for the pregnancy that resulted in the birth of a baby girl by Okwukwe, after the alleged act of infidelity. The girl is now three years old.
Although efforts to contact Prince Nonso failed, a member of the royal family, Prince Obi Nwoko who spoke withSunday Sun reporter said Okwukwe was

Charly Boy writes beautiful letter to wife as she turns a year older.



Below is what Charly Boy wrote to his wife Diane, as she added another year..

My Dearest Diane,


Like joke like joke we both are getting older. Today is your birthday and once again I can't help but to celebrate you in the open, what I have always done for the past 37yrs of our married life. Celebrating our extraordinary life together. I hope that our togetherness over the years have taught some people about perseverance, tolerance, discipline and love. 
You know our marriage has not been a bed of roses like that, but we have stayed loyal together through all kinds of terrible weather, never strayed, through all the challenges, battling so many winches and wizards, through tick and thin, even in poverty and great hopelessness. I have been our soldier, protecting this fragile thing called marriage. E no easyooooooooo.

Thank you for standing by me through all my bullshit, my ignorance and my mood swings, the fact is that I can never live with anyone like me but you have managed to survive 37yrs of me. Sometimes am not sure I deserve you, some other times I feel I could have done better or you could have done better. However, I trust that you have the stomach to still tolerate us for another 37yrs. Frankly, after 3 failed marriages, so many krugeegee waka, I think God did indeed bless me with you.

Leadership Newspaper returns their share of N9m from the arms deal fraud.


The management of Leadership Holdings Limited, publishers of Leadership newspapers, has returned the N9m it received from the office of former National Security Adviser through the Newspapers Proprietors Association of Nigeria as compensation for the seizure of its publications in June 2014.

In a letter dated January 29 and addressed to the General Secretary of NPAN, the Publishing company owned by former APC Presidential aspirant, Sam Nda-Isaiah, said it decided to return the money following the controversy it has generated.

The company however noted that they did no wrong by collecting the money since the decision to collect the money was reached after former President Goodluck Jonathan reached for an out of court settlement with the affected newspapers.

Leadership will be the second publishing house after The Sun to return the said compensation.


The letter reads;

“We refer to the above subject matter and enclose herewith a Zenith Bank draft no 08549695 for the sum of N9,000,000.00 (Nine million Naira only) being refund of the compensation paid by the Goodluck Jonathan government for the crude and illegal seizure of our newspapers over a period of 5 days by soldiers from the 6th of June to the 10th of June 2014 through the Newspapers Proprietors Association of Nigeria (NPAN). It will be recalled that this was the sum paid to all newspapers which incurred losses as a result of the act which was arrived at when President Jonathan pleaded for an out of court settlement.

The arrival of the baby therefore marked the end of years of anxiety for 33-year-old Oluwabunmi and her 42-year-old husband, Bankole Ogidan.

 “We were full of hope about having children and raising a complete family. But we had to wait till August 2013 before she got pregnant exactly two years after,” he said.

“We went for pregnancy test and it was confirmed positive. A few days after, my wife complained that she was feeling pains in her womb. We went to a midwife who told us that the pain was not a problem; that the pregnancy was intact. I was not satisfied, so I took her to another hospital (name withheld) where we did a scan but the doctor said he didn’t see any pregnancy. The doctor said there had been a miscarriage. I asked him that shouldn’t there be an outflow of blood if she had a miscarriage? The doctor said yes. I told him that we had not witnessed anything like that and he was shocked.
