News: Female Student goes missing after leaving nightclub with Man(Photo)



They were six girls, who went to Lounge 24 Gaga, a nightclub in Awka, the Anambra State capital, on September 17. They are Calista, Uju, Lovelyn, Ada, Chika and Annabel. All of them are friends and live close to one another. When they returned to their hostels the following morning, one of them – Annabel – could not be found.

According to the Nation ,the 300-Level English Language and Literature student of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) in Awka has not been seen anywhere, 43 days after she went to the night club with her friends. She is the only girl in a family of three.

Annabel, 24, a native of Enugu State, was last seen on Wednesday, September 17 evening, when she left her Paradise City Hostel in Iyiagu Estate, Awka.When she was leaving the club, Annabel reportedly left at midnight with a guy she met at the club. That was the last time she was seen.

Annabel’s friend and hostel mate, who simply gave her name as Ifeoma, said after clubbing, the girls decided to find a place to sleep before returning to their hostels. But Annabel, she said, told her friends she wanted to go with Mmiri, a male acquaintance, she met at the club. She was said to have told her friends that she was in need of money, which could have informed her decision to go away with the guy.

When she did not return in the morning, it was learnt that Ada and Chika called Annabel’s phone but were disappointed to hear a male voice claiming to have found the phone on the ground and asked the ‘owner’ to come for it.
Ada and Chika, it was gathered, retrieved the phone and contacted Annabel’s elder brother, Ifeanyi, who reported the matter at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) in Awka.

CAMPUSLIFE learnt that Ada and Chika were detained for alleged complicity but were later released on bail.When contacted on the phone, it was learnt that Mmiri claimed Annabel left his house at 3:30am when she refused to enter his room.
But, after the conversation, Mmiri reportedly switched off his phone and stopped going to a popular bar, where he drinks with his friends. He is nowhere to be found.
Our correspondent’s efforts to speak with Annabel’s friends she went to the nightclub with were futile. All of them declined to comment on the issue.

Annabel’s roommate, Ukamaka, gave an account of what happened when she spoke to CAMPUSLIFE on telephone.She said:
“Annabel told me she was going to the club that evening. Her friends, Ada and Chika, waited in the compound till they were joined by their other friends. I had a premonition of the incident in a dream I had the previous night. I told her not to go to the club but she refused. When the other three girls arrived, they all left together. When she did not return in the morning, I called her line but nobody picked. Later, a man claimed he found it.”
Asked to describe the kind of person Annabel is, Ukamaka said that her roommate is a good Christian and hardworking, saying Annabel is a good tailor. “I believe Annabel is a victim of circumstance,”
Ifeanyi said his family remained devastated by the incident.
“We are devastated at the moment. When I received the news, I travelled from Onitsha to Awka to report the matter at the police station. The matter is still being attended to at SCID and “B” Division. We have even gone spiritual to seek God’s help to find my missing sister. Our Dad is late but mum is highly disorganised.”

Ifeanyi said the matter had been reported to the UNIZIK management.Annabel’s mother in Onitsha, fought back tears as neighbours consoled her. She said:
“I warned my daughter to stay clear of bad friends, but she would not listen. When she was admitted in a hospital a few months ago, my spirit never accepted the kind of girls who visited her. Now, they have done their worst. I can’t see my daughter, now. Where is my only daughter? Annabel was seven months in my womb when my husband died.”
Mrs Edeh said she had consulted a prophet, who confirmed to her that her daughter is alive but held captive somewhere. She claimed that the prophet informed her that it was Annabel’s friends that facilitated her ‘abduction’ and threatened to sue them if her daughter did not return within days.

She added:
“All I am asking is the safe return of my daughter. I have no other girl. If she was kidnapped, those holding her would have called us. I am confused. We are only praying to God and hoping that she returns home safe and alive. I am pleading with anyone, who knows her whereabouts, to give useful information that can help us to locate her.”

As we speak, the town of Mubi in Adamawa state has become a desolate place.

News: I go to beer parlours every Friday so i can get closer to the 'common man' – Ayo Fayose



The Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has said he goes to beer parlour every Friday in order to enable him to get close to the common man in the state.

The governor spoke with journalists in Abuja on Thursday while defending the concept of what he described as “stomach infrastructure” introduced by his government.
He said it would be wrong to assume that stomach infrastructure means only sharing of food and money to the people.
Fayose defended his decision to go to beer parlours, saying that it would be wrong to equate governance with church or morality.

He said, “I also go to beer parlour on Friday to stay with the common men there. Governance is not church; it is about diverse characters and you must relate with them as such.
“Christmas is coming. Why do people go out of their ways to be shopping or doing other things if it is not just to make people merry?
“So, I’m grooming chicken, buying rice, yams, plantain, and the rest of them. I am sure if I give it to families during the festive period, they will be happy. So, stomach infrastructure is a way of life.”
Fayose said most people, who commit crime do so because they felt that life was no longer worthy of living for them and that there was no one to tell them that there was life for them.

He said it was because of this that he set up a department for stomach infrastructure and also appointed a special assistant and a personal assistant on it.
“So, my style without apology is that stomach infrastructure is a way of life for me, I will relate well with my people to alleviate poverty and hunger,” he added.

News: Tambuwal constitutionally free to defect – SAN



A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr. Peter Olorunnisola, on Thursday said the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal has the constitutional right to defect to any party of his choice.

Tambuwal defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
Olorunnisola spoke in an interview with journalists in Ilorin during the centenary lecture/public presentation of a book organised by the Old Students Association of Government Secondary School, Ilorin.

He said PDP’s reaction to Tambuwal’s defection was part of politics.
He said, “In a democratic system, a man has the right to move whereever he thinks his conscience allows him to go to, depending on what he is looking for. If a person moves out, the people who value him will not just look, they will try to fight back, whether their fight will be justified or not is a different thing.

“If a man decides from his own evaluation that he can find solace only in another party, he is free to do so. That PDP is trying to fight Tambuwal is part of politics. You do not see a good thing going away without you responding.”
He urged the Federal Government and security agencies in the country to flush out Boko Haram insurgents unleashing havoc and mayhem in some North East states.
The SAN also said it was imperative to improve on the quality of education in the country.

News: President Jonathan And Emir Sanusi Finally reconcile



After nearly a year of bitter relations, President Goodluck Jonathan and the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, met Thursday in Abuja and reconciled differences that once drove both men to the extremes of their offices.

Sanusi, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, was fired by the president in February after accusing the government of diverting $20 billion oil revenues.
The government denied the claim, and in turn, accused Mr. Sanusi of “financial recklessness”.
After leaving office, Mr. Sanusi was appointed the Emir of Kano in June, assuming one of the most powerful traditional stools in Nigeria.

His appointment by Kano State’s Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso, a member opposition All Progressives Congress, was opposed by the presidency which ordered the emir’s office blockaded for days.

The emir reportedly initiated peace moves, and the two men met for the first time in July during the breaking of the Muslim fast, a yearly routine in which the president meets top government officials who are Muslims and other prominent Islamic leaders in the country.
Our sources say Thursday’s meeting was essentially for reconciliation between the two sides.
The emir was accompanied to the meeting by all senior members of the Kano Emirate council, while Vice President Namadi Sambo, the National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, Attorney General, Mohammed Adoke, and the Foreign Affairs Minister, Aminu Wali also attended the meeting.

Officials at the meeting say the president urged peace, and announced that he had nothing against the emir and that he had forgotten everything that happened.
In return, Mr. Sanusi also preached peace saying he too had let go of the past.
The president and the emir later met privately for about 15 minutes, according to our sources.
Mr. Sanusi and his entourage left for Kano shortly after, and were on their way to the Abuja airport at the time of this report.

JOKE OF THE DAY: Akpors the mental patient! LWKMD....................

Akpors the mental patient

Akpors was being discharged from Yaba Mental Hospital after the doctors thought he was finally back to normal.
They put him in an Ambulance to be taken back home.
They took him to Omole Estate Phase 1, as he claimed that’s where he lived.
Just as they approached a certain house, 2 kids dressed in school uniforms came out of the house.
Akpors screamed; “Those are my children, they are going to school”.
A minute later a woman came out of the same house and Akpors screamed; “That’s my wife, she is late for work.”
This time the doctors were convinced Akpors was okay and took him out of the ambulance but was still in chains.
As they were about unlocking the chains, a man came out of the house and Akpors screamed: “That’s me, I’m going to my office.”

Can you guess what they did to Akpors next?

News: Ex-Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo attends his first class as a Masters/Ph.D student @ NOUN



Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, on Wednesday, had his first day in class as a Masters/Ph.d student of the National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN.
The former president is studying for a Masters and Doctorate degree in Christian Theology.

The class which took place in Ota, Ogun State, was held with his internal supervisor, Philip Tachin, a lecturer in Systematic Theology and a pastor.
Mr. Obasanjo said he was optimistic that additional knowledge in Theology will help him understand how to use religion in the alleviation of problems that affect people at the grass roots generally but particularly in Africa.
After receiving an outline for the course, he was given his first assignment to review a number of literatures on the subject and to present a research paper for review.
Mr. Obasanjo obtained a Post Graduate Diploma in 2009.
The Masters degree will precede the Doctorate degree.
Last month, Mr. Obasanjo revealed that he was returning to school to achieve his aspirations in life.
“I’m going back to school because I have to have something to aspire to in every endeavour of life,” Mr. Obasanjo had said.

“I always aspire to something new in my farm. I do that in my international activities. I do it in my writing. I do it in the improvement of my academic work which helps to sharpen my brain and strengthen my faith.”
The National Open University was initially established in 1983 but was suspended by the then military government in 1984.

Mr. Obasanjo resuscitated it in 2001.
In November 2006, a few months to the end of his eight-year tenure, the then president enrolled for a post graduate diploma in Christian Theology at the university.
He graduated in January 2009.
Born on March 5, 1937, Mr. Obasanjo attended Abeokuta Baptist High School; Mons Officers’ Cadet School, Aldershot, England; Royal College of Military Engineering, Chatham, England and School of Survey, Newbury, England.
He also attended the British Royal Engineers’ Young Officers School, Shrivenham, England; Indian Defence Staff College; Indian Army School of Engineering and Royal College of Defence Studies, London.

He enlisted into the Nigerian Army in 1958.
He was Nigeria’s Head of State between 1976 and 1979 when he voluntarily handed over to a civilian administration led by Shehu Shagari. In 1999, he was elected president. His tenure expired in 2007.

"What A Movie Director did to Me bcos of Sex"–Actress Olaitan Speaks



It is almost becoming a crime for a lady to be beautiful in the movie industry today, most of the men who call the shots will be struggling to get between her legs. This happened to Olaitan Ogungbile.

The actress, popularly known as Olaitan Sugar, is good in her job, she is very passionately about acting and believes her talent will help her to rise to the top, but some men in the industry want her 'thing'.

Reacting her s*x for role experience with a movie director, Olaitan said:
To me, it’s not a do-or-die affair. If anybody believes he has to sleep with you before giving you a role, you have the right to accept or reject such offer. I have gone through many experiences but I have never experienced such. If I like you, fine, I can date you.

You talked about going through many experiences, how did you handle such situations?
Like the one that happened a long time ago, though it was an English-speaking movie, I met with the woman who was to act as my mother while Kola Oyewo was to be my father.

At the last stage of the movie, people really appreciated me for the way I interpreted the role, they were so excited about my talent but suddenly, the director of the movie came and demanded for sex.

I cried and called Muyiwa Ademola, he told me to be prayerful. I told Ayo Adesanya and Sunny Alli too.

Initially, I thought it was a joke because we had almost concluded the movie and in fact, the costumier had called me to come for the last costume of the last set, but to my astonishment, the director was very resolute about his devilish plans and insisted that if I couldn’t sleep with him, I should go home!

News: Boko Haram Seize Mubi, Sack Army Headquarters, Kill Scores



The commercial town of Mubi in Adamawa state and border towns were thrown into a state of panic as several residents of the towns were attacked by rampaging Boko Haram members who also engaged Nigerian troops in a deadly shoot out, residents who fled the area have said.
Many of the soldiers and residents fled to neighbouring local government areas.
There are reports the group has hoisted its flag in the town.

Joshua Chinasa, a resident of Uba town which is about 30 Kilometres away from Mubi, said several people might have been killed during the shooting spree which was still going on at the time of filling this report.
“We are in serious trouble these boys have taken our towns. Some Boko Haram members have taken over Mararraban Mubi and Vintim the home town of Chief of Defense Staff, Alex Badeh, and the Nigerian troops are running for their lives.
“As I am talking to you now, residents are scampering for their lives for fear of imminent attack and uncertainty,” Mr. Chinasa said.
Also corroborating, Lamidi Kery, a female resident and a widow who lost her husband to a similar attack in Mubi, confirmed that people died during the attack.

“The town is deserted now, people have all fled into nearby bushes and hilltops. We have seen soldiers in their vehicles retreating,” she said.
Another source said that the Boko Haram insurgents overran Madagali down to Bazza both in Adamawa State.
“They are having a field day. Even yesterday I sneaked into Michika town to evacuate my aged mother, but surprisingly only insurgents could be heard around, there were no soldiers.”
“Mubi, has now become a shadow of its former self, people in hundreds are scampering for their lives.
“Even here in Maiha, we saw soldiers vehicles zoom-off towards Yola, the state capital,” said a local source in Maiha, another town in Adamawa.
Ahmad Sajor, the spokesperson to former Adamawa State governor, Murtala Nyako, revealed that his daughter was missing after news broke of the advance of the insurgents early Wednesday.
“This morning I got a call from my daughter who is a 200 level student of Adamawa State University, Mubi. She was hysterical. I was in Abuja for a meeting, but her information forced me to head back to Yola immediately,” Mr. Sajoh said.

“According to her, the insurgents were approaching the town which is the second largest in Adamawa State. I ordered her to leave the hostel and join her cousins to escape the town. I called my father who confirmed the story.
“By the time I arrived Yola airport, the town had fallen to the insurgents. My parents are trapped while my daughter and her cousins are missing. We lost contact for the past six hours.

“My colleague Mallam Iliyasu of the Bursary Department Adamawa State University, Mubi who is trapped in the town said by 2pm the Police Barracks in the GRA was overrun by the insurgents, the Prison was blown open while fighting was going on at the army Barracks.

“The IDP camp at Lamorde was thrown into confusion. The new rulers of the town had issued a decree banning all entry and exit to the town. Students who trooped to the motor park are now stranded with most taking refuge in any House that could welcome them.
“The barracks are the least safe locations in the town. So far there are no reported cases of killings or abductions. But fear and apprehension had taken over. No word yet on the incident either by Government or the Military.”

The state governor, Bala Ngillari, has asked the people of the state, particularly those in the affected areas to remain calm saying security agents are on the top of the situation.
“People should remain calm, security agents are on the top of situation,” P.P Elisha, the director Press and Public Affairs to the governor said on behalf of the governor.

News: Mechanic allegedly abducts, rapes 13-yr-old girl for 5 days



A Lokoja senior magistrate’s court has remanded a 28-year-old mechanic, Abdulkadir Salihu, in prison custody for allegedly abducting and raping a teenage girl for five days.
Mrs Joyce Abdulmalik of Lokoja Senior Magistrate Court 1 gave the order, yesterday, in her ruling on arraignment of the accused in Lokoja.
The accused was arraigned on a two-count charge of kidnapping and rape, being offences contrary to Sections 273 and 283 of the Penal Code Law.

Prosecuting police officer, Corporal Ubi Ubana, told the court that one Adama Ibrahim of Galilee Street, Lokoja reported the matter at the ‘A’ Division Police headquarters and Department of Criminal Investigation, Lokoja on October 23.
According to him, Ibrahim had alleged that on October 16, at about 1:25 pm, his niece (names withheld), aged 13, was sent to buy Okro from Adankolo New Layout Market, when the accused “enticed her into his house on Agbai Street.”

News: Africa gets first white president in Zambia



Zambia’s President Michael Sata — nicknamed “King Cobra” for his sharp tongue and manner — has died, officials said Wednesday, making his vice-president Africa’s first white head of state in decades.
Sata, 77, died Tuesday while undergoing treatment in London’s private King Edward VII hospital for an unspecified illness, the Zambian government said.
Vice-President Guy Scott, 70, was named interim leader — making him the first white president of an African nation since FW de Klerk ruled apartheid South Africa more than 20 years ago.

The late SataScott, whose parents were from Scotland, is not eligible to stand in the upcoming presidential election — which must be held within the next 90 days — because of a rule in Zambia’s 1996 constitution barring heads of state with foreign parents.
“Dr Scott will act as president of the Republic of Zambia until the country goes for a presidential by-election” said Defence Minister Edgar Lungu.

Scott issued a statement confirming his temporary promotion and the 90-day period for the elections.
He added that national mourning for Sata would begin Wednesday. “We will miss our beloved president and comrade,” he said,
– From train station cleaner to president –
Sata was elected in 2011 to preside over his landlocked, southern African nation of 15 million people.

It was a triumphant post for a man who rose from sweeping London railway stations, through to being a policeman and trade unionist.
Once in power, though, he proved to be an authoritarian populist who inveighed against political foes, the media and sometimes even allies, earning him his snakey sobriquet. His admirers saw him more as a no-nonsense man of action.

Rumours of him being seriously ill persisted during his final months in office. Frequent denials by the government — and legal action against activists claiming he was dying — did nothing to dispel them.
Sata had not been seen in public since returning from the UN General Assembly last month, where he failed to make a scheduled speech.
The announcement by cabinet secretary Roland Msiska on Wednesday that Sata had died created little surprise.

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing on of our beloved president,” Msiska said in an address to the nation.
Speculation was turning to who might become Zambia’s next president.
Even before Sata’s death, analysts had said a power struggle for Zambia’s top job was already well under way within the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) party.

When Sata flew to London just over a week ago for treatment he appointed his defence minister as acting president.
But Lungu, who also holds the justice portfolio, is seen as just one of several potential candidates within the faction-ridden party.
And outside the PF, former president Rupiah Banda, who is facing graft charges, has hinted at a possible return to active politics.
“I am legally eligible to stand,” he told AFP early this month, citing calls from his supporters to return to the political fray.'

– Tributes to Sata –
African leaders meanwhile paid tribute to Sata.
Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta hailed him as an “outstanding son of Africa”.
“He was gifted with unique, admirable abilities and strong values,” Kenyatta said in a statement.
South Africa’s ruling ANC said: “Zambia has lost not only a president who prioritised the poor, but also led the Zambian government at a time when the continent is working to reclaim its place in the global governance and economy.”

Sata rode to power on the back of resentment against the Chinese resource firms that dot Zambia, describing them as “infesters”.
His government had recently cracked down on political opponents and critical journalists who reported on his long-suspected illness and frequent “working trips” abroad, apparently for medical treatment.
