Students of the Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro are protesting against the N5, 000 COVID-19 fee imposed by the management.

The Nation learnt the protest, which started about 7am, saw several students at the institution’s gate and blocking the main entrance of the school.

The polytechnic had imposed a N5, 000 COVID-19 levy on all students returning for the 2019/2020 academic session.

The school, in a circular last week, directed students to pay the levy so that authorities will be able to prepare for the health and safety as students return to school.

Calling on the Delta State Government to wade into the matter and prevail on the management to withdraw the levy, the students described it as unlawful and a means of extorting them.

A lecturer of the polytechnic, who spoke in confidence, confirmed that staff have not been able to gain access into the school’s premises due to the protest against the COVID-19 fee.

A Catholic priest identified as Rev. Travis Clark has been arrested for desecrating the altar of Saints Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church in Pearl River, Louisiana.

The priest was arrested for allegedly filming himself having sex with two dominatrices on the altar at his Catholic church. The dominatrices were identified as adult film actress Mindy Dixon, 41, and 23-year-old Melissa Cheng.

They were nabbed after a passerby saw the lights on later than usual on September 30. The unidentified witness saw the half-naked priest having sex with the two women who were dressed in corsets and high-heeled boots. The altar was also adorned with stage lighting, several sex toys, and a cellphone mounted on a tripod that was recording the act.

The witness took video footage of the unholy trinity and then called police. Cops arrested Rev. Clark along with his two altar servers Mindy Dixon and Melissa Cheng, and booked them on obscenity charges.

New site, Nola, reported that Dixon had also posted about the sex act on social media the day before it occurred.  The site reported that Dixon said she was traveling to the New Orleans area to ‘defile a house of God’ with another dominatrix.

Following the arrest of Clark who was ordained in 2013, he has been suspended from the archdiocese. Church law says that when sacred places are violated they must be ‘repaired by penitential rite’ before they can be used again.

After the incident, Gregory Aymond, the archbishop of the New Orleans archdiocese visited the church to perform a ritual to restore the sanctity of the altar which is the most sacred of church spaces. Aymond has also announced that Rev Carol Shirima would replace Clark beginning on October 11.

Clark was released from jail on a $25,000 bond. Cheng and Dixon posted bonds of $7,500. All three could face six months to three years in prison if convicted of obscenity.Similar Articles:

She revealed that she was defying the advise of those around her but remaining silent doesn’t feel right.

DJ Cuppy went on to declare her support for the #EndPoliceBrutality AND #EndSARS in Nigeria.

She wrote,

Going against the advice of those around me, but it doesn’t feel right. Silence can say so much. My fellow Nigerians, forgive me for taking so long to comment…

Would be lying if I said I’m DIRECTLY affected by SARS but a lot of my Cupcakes are and that’s enough for me to care. I stand behind the movement to #EndPoliceBrutality AND #EndSARS Flag of Nigeria

Several Manchester United players are disappointed the club ‘did not fight to the death’ to improve the squad over the summer, according to reports.

United signed four players on transfer deadline day, including Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles, having secured a deal for Donny van de Beek earlier in the window.

The Athletic claim they have been told by several United players that they feel the club ‘did not fight to the death’ to enhance the squad for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this summer.

Apparently, none of the players signed were on Solskjaer’s shortlist this summer, adding to the players’ assertion that the ‘sporting direction’ of the club has been too inconsistent in recent years.

A source told The Athletic that United – heavily criticised for their transfer strategy – had been ‘outmanoeuvred by Liverpool’ to secure the signing of Thiago Alcantara, with Jurgen Klopp and Michael Edwards working together to persuade the midfielder to join.

A United dressing room source said that players feel an “opportunity has been lost” to build on the momentum from the end of last season, with the club losing ground on their rivals in the latest window.

Damilola Falodun

Damilola Falodun, a 25-year-old Nigerian girl, has told her saddening story after she got trafficked to Oman.

In this interview with PREMIUM TIMES, Falodun who was trafficked to Oman in search of greener pastures, tells the story of how she was sexually harassed by her boss in the Middle Eastern country.

On her return to Nigeria after over a year working as a house-help in Oman, Damilola, who presently studies Entrepreneurship and Business Management at the Abeokuta (Ogun State) campus of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), tells PREMIUM TIMES how she has commenced an enlightenment campaign against girl-child trafficking in Lagos and Osun states and the moves to extend the campaign to Benin City, Edo State

PT: How did you become an orphan?

Damilola Falodun: My mum and dad were separated. My dad (Emmanuel Falodun) was in Abia State, while my mum (Adetoro Falodun) was based in Abeokuta, Ogun State. My father was in Abia State for over seven years and we only talked once in a while. He called on May 23, 2014, to inform me that he was coming to see me on June 5, I was glad to hear that. But not quite three days later (May 27), I received another call that he had died.

He was asthmatic, they said he had an attack. They said they tried to reach my mum but could not that was why they called to inform me. He saved my name on his phone as ‘my daughter’. He (my dad) was an indigene of Aiyede in Ekiti State. About three months after my dad passed on, my mum fell sick briefly and also died. It happened on September 8, 2014.

PT: So, how did you carry on with your life after they died?

Damilola Falodun: I was a student of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta campus, department of business administration, when my father died. I was about writing my first semester examinations in ND2 when he died. I managed to write the examination because his death did not affect me that much. After all, we were not close, I only felt pained because of the conversations we had when he called to inform me that he was coming to see me.

But the big blow was when my mum died, I was also going for my second semester examination when the news filtered in that she was dead. I could not think straight anymore and that was where my education came to a halt. I stopped going to school and I missed my examinations. That was how I started another life entirely.

PT: What happened after she (your mum) died?

Damilola Falodun: I have three siblings. One from the same father and the other two from a step-father. There was no help from any relation when my parents died. To survive became difficult. I had to look for a job instantly as a teenager with a letter from my former school permitting me to do my industrial training before the results were out. I already had that letter before the examinations.

So, I got an offer to work as a waitress in a hotel in Lagos. In course of my job, I met two friends and we had the idea of travelling to Canada for greener pastures. As an orphan, I was naïve to a lot of things and open to any advice. They (my friends) took me to their pastor for prayers and that was how I was introduced to a travel agent, and from then on I started giving all my N20,000 salary to the agent monthly and survived with the tips I get. I was determined to leave the country, so, I was ready to starve to achieve that aspiration.

After some time, the hotel we were working in the island area of Lagos sacked my friends and I became the only one left behind. After some months, I received a call from the pastor that my visa was out, and without confirming, I resigned from the hotel immediately and came back to the mainland, only to discover that it was not out. I waited for another three months and the pastor opened up to inform me that he got the wrong information from the agent. Then hard times set in and I developed an ulcer because of lack of regular food. At that point, we realised that we were defrauded by the agent. It was a scam. The three of us jointly gave over N1 million to the agent to process our Canadian visas.

PT: When you people realised it was a fraud, did you attempt to report that matter to the police?

Damilola Falodun: Some members in the pastor’s church prevailed on us not to because the pastor would be involved as an accomplice. He (pastor), however, introduced us to another agent named Yomi, who promised to get us papers to travel to Oman to work as waitresses or house helps. He (Yomi) said if we get there, we could recover all we have lost in terms of money, within a few months. At that point, we did not have money on us, so I sold my phone to raise cash and within one week my visa was out.

PT: So, what happened after then?

Damilola Falodun: After the visa was out, we did medical checks and proceeded to Oman. We were many girls that left Nigeria on that day, and the way we got passes at the different checks indicated that the agent had connections at the airport. That again made us have confidence in him. The agent also had a link with another agent in Oman, and when we got to Oman, there was already a driver waiting to pick us up at the airport. The driver, an Oman citizen, requested our passports immediately because he was the one carrying us and would be able to explain better to the police who we are. So, we obliged him our passports. We later got to know that the passports had been seized by the foreign agent, because when we got to the office, we were made to sign a document written in Arabic.

We tried to make someone explain the meaning of what we were signing but could not get a direct explanation. It was after we signed the document that we knew there was something fishy about the whole thing. We were made to understand that we would be house cleaners for individual families. The first job agreement was that I was going to be remitting my salary to the foreign agent for the first seven months, I think the Nigerian agent (Yomi) has a link with this too. So, I started work.

PT: What kind of work were you doing?

Damilola Falodun: I was doing the job of a housemaid, but in Oman it is translated to mean ‘slave’, especially for those of us from Nigeria. I worked with a family for four months but had to leave when I was sexually harassed several times by the head of the family. They had 12 children and the mother was always too busy to notice anything. I had no privacy in my room because I was not allowed to lock the door. So, it was always open and he could come in at any time. So, he comes most times in the day time.

I tried to complain to the mother of the house but she didn’t understand what I was saying. I now decided to be going outside the house immediately the madam leaves the building and whenever she comes back, it is trouble and she beats me for not working while she was away. The sexual harassment continued. The salary they were paying me was being sent to the agent, who in turn shared it with the Nigerian agent.

PT: Did you complain to the agent that you were being sexually harassed?

Damilola Falodun: I did but the foreign agent, a woman, told me to be patient with them. She said I will have my freedom as soon as I finished paying the agreed seven months salary. The job was not easy because I scrubbed the walls of the building almost daily, no time for rest. The employers made you understand that they have bought your freedom, so you are not free till at least the next year.

PT: Do you think the Oman government is aware of all these inhuman treatments metted to Nigerians in their country?

Damilola Falodun: I think they are aware. I met a fellow Nigerian in the agent’s office, who said she went to the police authority to complain of the situation. She too was facing the kind of stress I was going through. But instead of taking action, the police called the agent to come and pick her. That gave me the feeling that they are aware and not ready to act on the complaints.

A lot of Nigerians have died in Oman without records being sent back home of their whereabouts. Somehow, after four months in my place of work, I got money to buy a phone which I used in making a video of my boss when he came to my room to sexually harass me, because I thought it would be the best way to return to Nigeria. I was already fed up with the whole arrangement. I managed to make a 35 seconds video of the man naked in my room while trying to sexually harass me. After that, I went to madam and showed her the video, she took me back immediately to the agent’s office, and the contract was terminated.

The agents in Oman subjected me to further torture. The name of the agency is Almaahed in Oman Nizwa. I was beaten for exposing the man. I was locked up in a cell within the agent’s office and that was where I met other Nigerian girls in a similar situation. I witnessed torture in the cell. A lady was beaten in that cell until she became mentally unstable. Some ladies in the cell urged me to beg them (the agents) because they were also being sexually harassed. They told me to go and continue with my work, advising that it was better out there than in the cell.

I started begging them every day, that I would be of good behaviour that they should allow me to work again. Somehow they listened to my pleas and I was released and I started working again, but this time I was made to return to the agent’s office every five days to ensure compliance. I worked for five different families after then.

PT: How did you come back to Nigeria?

Damilola Falodun: When I was in Nigeria, I did not appreciate what was called ‘freedom’ until I went to Oman. We are very free in Nigeria, because you can raise little money to buy food. I discovered that it was better to go back home instead of living a slave life in Oman. My dream about going to work abroad was to gather money and come back to invest in Nigeria, but I got to Oman I realised it was a different ball game entirely. When you have a family member abroad, you do not know what they are going through.

It was by God’s grace that I found my way back to Nigeria. I used the money I earned to fly myself back to Nigeria. I stayed in Oman for over one year and after fulfilling the agreement, with the money I earned, I got my passports back and came back to Nigeria. All along, I did not contact my family members because I did not want them to know what I was going through. I travelled in 2016 and returned in 2017.

PT: So, how did you start life when you came back to Nigeria?

Damilola Falodun: I did not return to Nigeria with any money. There was this lady, my mother’s friend, that helped me secure my international passport before she travelled to the United States. When I got back, I got a call from her and she was astonished to hear that I went to Oman. We lost contact at some point.

I explained to her that life became difficult at some point. Somehow, I was encouraged to go back to school and I made some moves and got admitted into the National Open University of Nigeria in Abeokuta, studying entrepreneurship and business management.

PT: Are you battling with any psychological effects as a result of your experiences in Oman?

Damilola Falodun: Yes, I have now had a chronic ulcer, which was also a result of the starvation I also encountered in Oman. I also have other women-related challenges that I am battling with. I now use medicated eyeglasses to correct my sight.

PT: What do you think the federal government can do to reduce the migration to such countries where Nigerians are used as ‘slaves’?

Damilola Falodun: There was an Ethiopian lady that passed through what we went through in Oman and when she went back to her country she began a sensitisation process that has drawn the government’s attention to ladies travelling to Oman. There is serious scrutiny against trafficking to the Middle East in that country. The federal government can do the same in Nigeria.

In Nigeria, some of the trafficking at the airport is aided by officials, it can be checked. The travel agents into this business work in collaboration with our immigration officials, that was why (we had) the seamless passage when we were leaving Nigeria. When I returned to Nigeria there was this beauty pageantry that was ongoing, I keyed into their programme.

Since I came back, I have been carrying out some form of enlightenment campaign against girls trafficking. I have carried out some campaigns in Lagos and Ile-Ife. I hope to extend the same to Benin City in Edo State. It is geared towards giving those that are trapped abroad the hope to return home because I discovered that most people who are trapped do not want to come back home because of shame.

New Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has sustained a thigh injury on international duty with Senegal.

The 28-year-old completed a switch to Stamford Bridge from Rennes last month and claimed a clean sheet on his first Premier League start against Crystal Palace last Saturday.

Mendy has returned to London and will be assessed by Chelsea, who are next in action on October 17 at home to Southampton.

“The Senegalese Football Federation has announced the withdrawal from their squad of Edouard Mendy due to injury,” a Chelsea statement read.

“The goalkeeper sustained an injury to his right thigh during training on Wednesday and had a medical examination in a hospital in Rabat, where Senegal are due to play Morocco tonight.

“Mendy has since returned to Chelsea where he will undergo further examinations.”

Earlier this week, Kepa Arrizabalaga, who cost the Blues £72million when he joined from Athletic Bilbao in 2018, expressed his confidence that he could win back the number one spot in west London.

The Spaniard kept a clean sheet against Portugal on Wednesday and Chelsea manager Frank Lampard could have a selection headache when Southampton visit.

Abdulrasheed Maina

A former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), Abdulrasheed Maina has spoken from his hospital bed about his trial.

The ex PRTT boss says he needs about six weeks to recover before he can attend trial in court, TheCable reports.

Maina has been absent from trial since he was released after meeting his bail conditions.

Ali Ndume, senator representing Borno south, who is standing as a surety for Maina, had told the federal high court in Abuja on October 3, that he did not know the whereabouts of the former pension boss.

But Francis Oronsaye, Maina’s counsel, told the court that his client was at Maitama General Hospital receiving treatment.

Speaking from a hospital bed in a video which surfaced on Thursday, Maina said he is not trying to evade trial.

“What the doctors told me is that I’ll need at least six to seven weeks of recovery because it is a knee cap injury,”
Maina said

He also said he suffers a constant rise in blood pressure which affects his head and makes him drowsy.

On the issue of asset recovery, Maina explained that he saw a report which stated that he would recover N10 billion, but he denied saying so.

“I never told anyone to go and say so. But it is something I can do. I did that during the Jonathan administration and we recovered N1.6 trillion as a committee and during this administration, I recovered N1.3 trillion,”
he said.

“I can also do that for President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

“Imagine an administration that owes me N65 billion, which is five percent of my recovery of N1.3 trillion, now putting me up for trial over N2 billion. Do they think Nigerians are stupid?

“If it is true, then the same EFCC who is taking me to court needs to be joined as defendants in the case because all the security agencies were part of my team.”

Maina is standing trial on 12 counts of alleged money laundering.Similar Articles:

CHELSEA REFUSE ERIKSEN DEAL

The aftermath of deadline day is usually littered with whispers of deals that never happened and a few this week have centred around Chelsea. Here’s another…

It seems Antonio Conte wanted to bring N’Golo Kante to Italy this summer. Calciomercato is reporting that Inter Milan approached Chelsea with a swap deal that involved Christian Eriksen heading in the opposite direction.

Kante was linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge for much of the summer but Chelsea refused to consider this particular offer.

SOUMARE EYED AS RICE ALTERNATIVE

Had the Blues been able to get their hands on Declan Rice then perhaps they may have been more open to selling Kante. But West Ham stood firm in the face of Chelsea’s interest and Rice remains a Hammer.

Chelsea received very little encouragement over their pursuit of Rice and football.london reckons they are no more optimistic of doing a deal in the near future. So they are considering alternatives.

One is said to be Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare. The 21-year-old was the subject of interest late in the window from Napoli, Inter and AC Milan but no move materialised. Come next summer, Soumare will have only a year remaining on his contract.

WEST HAM EYE CHAMPIONSHIP SIX

The international window may be closed but West Ham aren’t done yet. David Moyes still has a week to scour the Championship for a centre-back and a midfielder.

The Daily Star suggests the Hammers are considering a £5million offer for QPR midfielder Ryan Manning, who can also play at left-back. But most of their attention seems to be focused on Bournemouth…

Josh King is a target but, according to The Guardian, West Ham believe the Cherries should lower their £17.5million valuation. King’s Bournemouth team-mate Steve Cook is also reported to be in their sights, while elsewhere, the Irons have their eye on Cardiff’s Sean Morrison, Watford defender Craig Dawson and Swansea’s Matt Grimes.

LIVERPOOL LINKED WITH UPAMECANO

Manchester United are prepared to take their sweet time over their search for a centre-back, despite the gaping hole next to Harry Maguire.

The Mirror yesterday made a tenuous link between United and Dayot Upamecano since the RB Leipzig defender is set to be available at a knockdown price next summer.

Bild reckons Liverpool will put up a fight to sign the Frenchman for £36.5million, while Manchester City are also monitoring the situation, despite having spent £100million on centre-backs this summer.

Lawyer Paulette Bisola Ajayi, who was kidnapped last week in Rivers state, has spoken out after she was rescued by the police earlier today.

An employee of the British High Commission, Paul Nyulaku, was also rescued in the operation.

The pair were kidnapped on Sunday at different parts of Port Harcourt, the state capital and whisked away to a forest in the state by members of the same gang, who demanded ransoms from their families.

Speaking out after her release, the Port Harcourt based lawyer, stated that her abductors raised the ransom for her release from N50 million to N300million, after news about her abduction went viral.

Paulette Bisola Ajayi sharing her ordeal with newsmen said;

“I am a Lawyer. I was kidnapped in the presence of my family members. I was taken to where I don’t know. As soon the news of my Kidnap went viral, the Kidnappers increased their ransom demand from N50 million to N250 million and then N300million. They threatened to kill me if the ransom was not paid before I was rescued.”

She expressed appreciation to the Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, Commissioner of Police, CP Joseph Mukan, President of Nigeria Bar Association,NBA, Olumide Akpata, and all those who made it possible to ensure her timely release.

Confirming their rescue to newsmen, the state Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mukan, said operatives of the anti-kidnapping unit in a sting operation rescued the duo at Okomoko forest in Etche Local Government Area of the state.

Mukan said one of the kidnappers, Chinedu Chigbu, 39, was fatally injured during the shootout and later died in a hospital while others escaped into the bush with bullet wounds.

“Their camp was immediately destroyed. Exhibits recovered from them include one AK47 rifle, a fully loaded magazine and 100 rounds of live ammunition. Efforts are on to arrest members of the gang.

The public particularly residents of Etche and Eberi-Omuma LGA are hereby enjoined to increase their security consciousness and report anybody with gunshot wounds to the nearest police station” Makun said.

Thomas Partey has issued his first message to the Arsenal “family” he joined on transfer deadline day.

Arsenal realised part of a seven-month plan with the late capture of midfielder Partey from Atletico Madrid for around £45m.

The deal left Atletico ‘furious’ with Arsenal but the Gunners will be content with adding another piece of the jigsaw to their midfield puzzle.

Partey has now addressed the supporters for the first time while on international duty with Ghana as their vice-captain.

“Hi guys. Thanks so much for the love and for the message I have received,” he said on Arsenal’s Twitter timeline. “I can’t wait to be part of you guys, I can’t wait to join the team.

“It’s a great feeling to be part of a family like this. Thanks so much to everyone for the love, I feel so grateful and I feel so amazed to be part of you. I can’t wait to join you guys.

“And don’t forget, no Thomas, No Partey!”

Well that’s a real shame.

Mikel Arteta feels the 27-year-old “has the right qualities, with his character and his personality” to prosper in north London.

“I think he allows us to play different formations and he can fit in within those formations in different positions, which is a really good thing to have in a squad where, in midfield, I think we were a little bit short,” said the manager.

“I have a few things in mind that I want to start to train with the team and this is going to give us a little bit more adaptability and more balance in defending and attacking transitions and the way we have to set up certain structures to attack better in certain moments of the game.”

The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has threatened to shut down oil and gas operations should the Federal Government fail to pay their salaries by Friday.

The senior oil workers, who gathered at the Petroleum Training Institute (PTI) Effurun in Delta, had begun a peaceful protest on Wednesday.

They displayed placards with inscriptions such as “PENGASSAN says no to IPPIS,” We say no to salary reduction using IPPIS” and “We are not against IPPIS but create another platform that addresses our peculiarities,” among others.

The Nation had reported the protesters on August 13, threatened to shut down all oil operations but backed out following intervention by top government officials promising to address their grievances.

It was gathered the oil workers and Federal Government did not reach a compromise, which informed the renewed industrial action.

Addressing members, Branch Chairman of PENGASSAN, PTI Comrade Zarakiya Ahmad Muhammad, warned if their salaries are not released by Friday, the Federal Government should be ready to contend with total shut down of operations in the industry.

Muhammad, who was in company of Secretary of Regulators Forum, Prince Audi Oshiokhamele and chairman of PTI branch of NUPENG, Mr. Ejokirhie Jahpurpose, expressed shock the Federal Ministry of Finance failed to pay their August and September salaries while negotiations were ongoing.

The chairman stated aside seizure of their two- month salaries, the strike was also informed by the clumsy manner in which members were enrolled on the IPPIS.

According to him, though the union supported all government’s efforts to achieve transparency and accountability, it should not be to the detriment of oil workers.Similar Articles:

Nigerian are commending the move by officials of Hisbah in Kaduna State, to ban girls and ladies from using or possessing mobile phones and sunglasses.

The ban is to take effect in Kuriga Village under Chikun Local Government Area, of Kaduna state.

According to SaharaReporters, a resident of the community raised the alarm over the increasing repressive activities of the religious police in the region.

The resident alleged that Hisbah had been ‘frustrating the lives of youths in Kuriga and often carry out severe punishment for moral failings’. He told the media outlet;

“Hisbah is punishing youths for keeping afro hair and sometimes it is accompanied with beating.

“They have also prevented women and girls from using smartphones, claiming that it is used to spread unIslamic behaviours.

They are just terrorising us.”

Hisbah recently made headlines for shaving off stylish haircuts of young men in Kano, arresting people for improper dressing and seizing tricycles from riders for adorning them with pictures considered to be obscene and against the tenets of Islam.

The agency established to enforce Sharia law in some states in Northern Nigeria, also banned stylish haircuts, sagging of trousers and playing of music at social events by disk jockeys in Kebbi State.

The Senate will debate the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) recently transmitted to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari on October 20.

Senate President Ahmad Lawan announced this shortly before the Upper Chamber adjourned plenary on Thursday.

According to Lawan, early debate on the Bill is expected to avert any delay in consideration, resulting from the Upper Chamber’s decision to suspend plenary for one month to enable Ministries, Departments and Agencies of Government defend their respective budgets for the year 2021.

Lawan added the critical piece of legislation, after the debate on the floor by lawmakers, would then pass for second reading and be referred to the Joint Committees on Petroleum; and Gas for further legislative work.

“For the PIB, we need to get the document to our Joint Committee before we suspend plenary, otherwise, the document will remain unattended to throughout the time that we would be handling the budget; and that means we can only come back to it around November or December, and that would be late.

“Everybody is waiting for the PIB to be attended to, but we will take sufficient time to work on it because it is a very sensitive document.

“Nevertheless, we should take the debate and Second Reading of the PIB by the upper week, Tuesday 20th, 2020, and refer the document to our Joint Committees on Petroleum (Upstream and Downstream); and Gas.

“So, while we are working on the budget, they can keep work on the PIB warm. We are not going to rush on it since we have the budget before us.

“Our Joint Committee must do everything possible for us to have a document or report that we would work with in the Senate and something that Nigerians and investors will be happy with,” the Senate President said.Similar Articles:

President Muhammadu Buhari has presented the 2021 budget proposal of N13.08trillion to the National Assembly for consideration and passage into law.

The President, who was accompanied by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, some cabinet members and presidential aides, arrived the premises of NASS at about 11.03p.m.

He explained that the total aggregate revenue projected for the 2021 budget was N7.86 trillion with a deficit of N5.2 trillion, representing 3.4 per cent of the GDP.

He said the deficit would be financed mainly by new borrowing, totalling N4.28trillion.

Buhari stated that the total revenue available to fund the 2021 federal budget was estimated to N7.886trillion which included grants and aids of N354.85billion as well as revenues of 60 government owned enterprises.

According to him, the budget, which is described as a budget for Economic Recovery and Resilience, is based on an estimated oil price benchmark of 40dollars per barrel, daily oil production estimate of 1.86 million barrels (inclusive of condensates of 300,000 to 400,000 barrels per day) and an exchange rate of N379 per dollar.

“Based on the foregoing fiscal assumptions and parameters, total federally distributable revenue is estimated at N8.433 trillion in 2021. Total revenue available to fund the 2021 Federal Budget is estimated at N7.886 trillion.

“This includes Grants and Aid of N354.85 billion as well as the revenues of 60 government-owned Enterprises.

According to him, oil revenue is projected at N2.01 trillion and non-oil revenue is estimated at N1.49 trillion.

“As you will observe, the format of the 2021 Appropriation Bill has been

modified to include budgeted revenues, no matter how small, for each MDA, to focus on internal revenue generation.

“Accordingly, I implore you to pay as much attention to the revenue side as you do to the expenditure side.

He stated that N3.12trillion had been earmarked for debt servicing in 2021 as against N2.1trillion in 2020

The president, who reviewed the performance of the 2020 budget so far, said the budget was amended in response to the challenges occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As at July 2020, the Federal Government’s actual revenue available for the budget was N2.10 trillion.

“This revenue performance was only 68 percent of our pro-rated target in the revised 2020 budget.

“At N992.45 billion, oil revenue performed well above our budget target, by 168 per cent. Non-oil tax revenues totalled N692.83 billion, which was 73 percent of the revised target.’’(NAN)

Following the on-going protest by Nigerian youths to disband and quit operations of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad SARS, Mike Okiro, a former Inspector-General of Police, IGP, has said that such move will only make armed robbers in the country happy.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria NAN, Okiro said the squad should be rebranded and refocused for effective service delivery rather than being banned.

“The police management should go to the drawing board and retrain personnel of the SARS as it will be counter-productive to disband them. You cannot throw away the baby with the bath water, if they have deviated from what they were established for they should be retrained and refocused.

Armed robbers will be happy that there is no more SARS in the country but are Nigerians ready for that“ he said.Similar Articles:

Arsenal technical director Edu says Thomas Partey was part of a “plan” he drew up with Mikel Arteta “six or seven months ago”.

The Gunners paid the Atletico Madrid midfielder’s reported £45m release clause with a little more than half an hour remaining on transfer deadline day.

On signing Partey, Edu told the official Arsenal website: “One day I would like to show the fans how we work, or how we worked, because if you saw my plan six or seven months ago when I did it with Mikel (Arteta), Thomas was there already.

“So you see how many months we had to try to find the right player for the club.

“So many things to do, so many meetings, we had to see how we were going to buy the player, if we had the financial situation to buy the player, the legal process, the financial process, talk to the player, talk to the agent, so there are a lot of things around this but in the end we did it!”

On help from the Gunners’ owners, Edu added: “To be fair, it is a huge investment for this moment which we are in now and of course we need the green light from them.

“When I showed my plan to them, they were so excited, they understand the plan and pressed the green button and then I felt very, very confident because it is not easy to invest a lot of money in this period of time.”

IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu

Nnamdi Kanu has vowed to launch Radio Biafra in President Muhammadu Buhari’s hometown in Daura, Katsina State.

The Indigenous People of Biafra leader said this on Thursday.

The secessionist group’s leader insisted that its Radio station would be established in the president’s community within the next six weeks.

The IPOB leader, who spoke through the group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, was reacting to a report that the Nigerian government had approved N654m to monitor and crash Radio Biafra’s frequencies in the Southeast.

He stressed that the launch was to prove that IPOB was indefatigable.

According to the IPOB leader, the wife of the president, Aisha would soon start listening to Radio Biafra in Daura, Katsina State.

A statement by Powerful said: “The attention of the global movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the approval of N654m by the Federal Government of Nigeria to monitor and crash Radio Biafra frequencies in the country particularly in South-East and South-South geopolitical zones. This wicked but futile decision was taken during their Federal Executive Council meeting held Wednesday, 7th of October 2020.

“In fact to prove to them how formidable we are, within six weeks from now, IPOB will launch Radio Biafra in Daura, the home town of Buhari who presided over the FEC that took this foolish decision.

“Any time Aisha visits Daura she will receive Radio Biafra frequency and listen to the gospel of freedom by our Leader, Nnamdi Kanu.”Similar Articles:

Man Utd have left out Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero and Phil Jones out of their Champions League squad for the group stage of the competition.

It will come as little surprise to see those three names out of the squad for various reasons.

Rojo spent the second half of last season at Estudiantes on loan from Man Utd, while Jones only made two Premier League appearances in the whole of the 2019/20 campaign.

Romero, meanwhile, who played the majority of the Red Devils’ cup matches last term has been demoted to third choice following the return of Dean Henderson this summer.

And a report in the Daily Mail today claims that Romero fancies a move to the MLS in the coming weeks as their window remains open until October 29.

New signings Edinson Cavani and Facundo Pellistri have been included in the squad, while Mason Greenwood Teden Mengi and Brandon Williams are on the clubs B list.

Players on the B list can be added to any matchday squad up to 24 hours before the fixture takes place.

No fewer than five persons were reportedly shot on Wednesday evening along the Ekreravwen axis of the East-West Road in Ughelli North council area of Delta state.

The Nation learnt the incident occurred around 6pm with an unspecified number of persons abducted by heavily armed hoodlums.

The Nation reports the Ekreravwen/Uvwiamughe-Agbarho section of the expressway has been notorious for hoodlums attack and kidnapping.

One of such incidents in September 2019 led to the death of a Police inspector.

Pictures of the incident seen by The Nation showed an interstate transit 18-seater bus with shattered personal effects on the ground.

A red car with the window on the driver’s side was totally shattered while a tricycle had blood stains on the back seat.

According to a source, one of the victims, a woman, was rushed in an ambulance to a private hospital in Warri.

The source disclosed the victim taken to Warri sustained bullet wounds on her chest.

“A woman was rushed to a hospital (name withheld) here in Warri. She was shot by armed robbers by Beta Glass in Ughelli. They said five were shot but the others were rushed a hospital in Ughelli.

“She was brought here in a Delta State ambulance that was what attracted me. She is inside the hospital with her family. She was shot on the upper region of her chest,” the source said.

A community source said he saw two persons, a man and woman, who sustained gunshot injuries in the incident.

He claimed the assailants sprung from both sides of the bush bearing AK-47 and shot sporadically for a long time before abducting an unknown number of travellers.

“Yesterday, an Agofure bus and some other vehicles were involved in the attack. The armed robbers came from both sides of the road. They shot heavily. One Ekrerawhen boy was shot in the head, but he didn’t die.

“A lady was shot on both legs. The thing is these people were not robbed, instead some were kidnapped.

“Because those that were remaining said they had their phones, they didn’t collect their money and all that,” the source stated.

Delta Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, confirmed the incident.

He however noted the number of those kidnapped was yet to be ascertained but efforts are in to rescue them.

“It is true. For now, we have one person that was shot, a male. For now we cannot ascertain (number of those kidnapped). The kidnappers have only made call to one person.

“The report I have is that an Agofure vehicle is involved, a keke rider was involved and I think a mini-bus or so,” the PPRO said.Similar Articles:

Liverpool have included Xherdan Shaqiri in their Champions League squad for the group stage of the competition but Harry Wilson misses out and could be set for a loan move away.

The Reds had hoped to offload Shaqiri, who has been limited to just 82 minutes of action since January 11 – 75 minutes of which came in the Carabao Cup at Lincoln – because of injury, in the recent transfer window but interest from a couple of Italian clubs failed to materialise into an acceptable bid.

Speaking on international duty – before he tested positive for coronavirus – Shaqiri said that it was his decision to stay at Liverpool: “The media write a lot, but in the end I’m with Liverpool.

“I have a long-term contract, and I really feel good. I have decided to stay with Liverpool. In football, there is always speculation.

“I think the national team comes at a good time to be able to play again and then attack again when I go back to Liverpool.”

And it now seems he will help the Reds on in all competitions after his inclusion in the squad, however one player that looks set to leave still is Wilson.

The Wales international, who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, was left out of Liverpool’s Champions League squad and Evening Standard reporter David Lynch claims the ‘club planning talks with player over a possible loan’.

They also kept chatting #EndSARS.

The protesters said many of the SARS operatives have been indicted for rights violations, including extra-judicial killings, extortion, illegal detention and other misconduct.

Ex-BBNaija housemate, Tacha reveals that she does not know her current status with her boyfriend in 4 relationship years.

The reality star was a guest on Toke Makinwa’s weekly vlog and they talked about everything from the Lockdown, how they both stay motivated, relationships, trolls, and more.

Toke asked about her relationship status and Tacha revealed that she doesn’t know her status currently as she and her boyfriend haven’t spoken in a day.

She talked about taking a break from the relationship as her boyfriend always wants her to slow down and she doesn’t want that.

Right now I don’t even know my relationship status really. I probably might get to my phone and see missed calls and we are back in a relationship. But for now, we haven’t really talked in a day.

I feel like it’s my zeal, it’s just too much.” she said.

DEMBELE PREFERRED JUVE OVER MAN UTD

Manchester United spent much of deadline day scratting around for a right-winger but they couldn’t sign either Ousmane Dembele or Ismaila Sarr. Just like they failed to sign the four players Ole Gunnar Solskjaer really wanted.

The feeling around Dembele was that he never much fancied moving to Old Trafford anyway and Catalunya Radio have firmed that up. They suggest the France winger has it in mind to leave Barcelona but when he does – next summer, most likely – he wants to go to Juventus.

United could still sign Sarr if they really wanted to, which they clearly don’t. Premier League clubs can take players from Championship clubs up until October 16, but Goal reckons the Red Devils have no intention of rekindling their passing interest in the Watford winger before next Friday.

UNITED ‘PRIMED’ OVER BARGAIN UPAMECANO

Dayot Upamecano was among Solskjaer’s four most-wanted but United never showed even the hint of intent to sign a centre-back. The Mirror, though, says the Red Devils are ‘in prime position to trigger his new bargain release clause’ next summer.

Then, it is claimed, the RB Leipzig defender will be available for £38million. United, Liverpool, Man City and Arsenal have all been linked with Upamecano, so why does the Mirror reckon Solskjaer ‘is in a good position’ to land the 21-year-old?

Because City and Arsenal signed centre-backs this summer – a reminder that United signed three between 2017 and 2019 – and, well, it doesn’t say why they should be considered as a more likely destination than Liverpool. Only that both clubs have started the season ‘a little shaky at the back’ and they ‘will be considering new centre-backs already’.

ROMERO WANTS MLS MOVE

Sergio Romero is hoping that he can still get away from United sooner rather than later. The goalkeeper often referred to as the best back-up in Europe got his back up on deadline day when a move to Everton fell through because United demanded a fee for the Argentinian.

Mrs Romero was pissed off too. But the keeper is eyeing an alternative escape route before January.

The Daily Mail says Romero fancies a move to MLS in the coming weeks. The window remains open there until October 29, but the story doesn’t actually mention any particular club as a potential destination. And United will probably still expect a fee.

HAMMERS, LEEDS AND BAGGIES EYE CHAMP TALENT

West Ham are still keen to strengthen their squad despite the Premier League window closing on Monday. They almost broke even but still need a centre-back and the Evening Standard suggests the Hammers will scour the Championship for a midfielder too.

Norwich’s Todd Cantwell has been linked with Leeds but despite the player’s desire to move to Elland Road, the Canaries are said to be confident of keeping him from Marcelo Bielsa’s clutches.

West Brom too are looking back to the Championship for reinforcements. The Daily Mail says the Baggies are confident of signing Karlan Grant from Huddersfield for £17million.

Reno Omokri has condemned Tacha for referring to a critic as a lazy Nigerian youth.

Tacha had gone on Twitter to call for an end to SARS while stating that Nigerians need to protest on the streets, not just on social media.

When she didn’t go out to protest, a Twitter user @sayo_law called her out for it, writing: “So Tacha didn’t lead a protest today? Disappointing”

Tacha responded: “Lazy Nigerian youth! Stay home and be waiting for me!!”

Reno reacted by telling Tacha to be humble because those same lazy youths are the ones who voted for her when she went for the Big Brother Naija reality show last year.

He wrote:

“That may well be true. But remember that these same ‘lazy’ Nigerian youths went out of their way to promote you from obscurity to prosperity. A little gratitude won’t be out of place. I agree that celebrities should not be maligned or blackmailed into championing things they don’t have a passion for. No one should force you to lead a protest. However, those whose palm kernels were cracked by a benevolent spirit should not forget to be humble.”

The virtual campaign against alleged ill practices of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) gathered more momentum on Wednesday as protesters took to Lagos streets against the unit.

Despite the heavy downpour witnessed early Wednesday morning and the gridlock that followed in parts of the state, aggrieved youths in their hundreds stormed the Police Command Headquarters, Ikeja with placards demanding an end to the menaces of SARS.

Tagged “Three-days protest calling for the outright disbandment of SARS”, the protesters bore placards with inscriptions like “Am I the next to die?”; “Stop police brutality”; “Why shoot bullets at us?”; “I am not a criminal #EndSARS”; “Our lives matter”; “Stop criminalising innocent citizens” and “stop extorting and killing us.”

From their convergence point at Ikeja under Bridge opposite Computer Village, they marched and danced to the Police Command Headquarters where they presented a signed register by participants outlining their pains in the hands of SARS.

They demanded that names of all officers who have been found culpable to be made public and subjected to transparent prosecution.

The protesters also charged authorities to ensure justice and compensation for all victims who have suffered injustice in the past whether dead or alive.

They called for a public enquiry on past activities of the unit, adding all SARS detention centres must be made open for independent investigators to assess them, lamenting that some persons have been held in custody for four years and more just because they were standing in front of their homes or running errands.

According to them, the police hierarchy must ensure all unjust harassment and extortion of youth by cops are brought to an end.

Also, the protesters said policemen on duty must have their name tags depicting their units as well, appealing to the police to outlaw the norm of gun-totting policemen dressed in civilian wears in unmarked vehicles while on duty.

In the long term, they suggested that the police hierarchy should apply digital medium for tracking such cases.

Narrating his experience, one Alex Kingsley said his 16-year-old brother who was given foodstuff to bring to him was arrested and branded a Yahoo boy.

“My younger brother of 16 years in SS2 was given foodstuff to bring for me by my mother only for SARS to accost him that he’s a Yahoo boy. He was holding my mum’s small nokia torch phone, nothing was found on him except the foodstuffs and he was detained,” he lamented.

Another victim, Uche Anyadike said: “When the lockdown started newly, I and my whole family (mom and two older brothers) went to see a family friend but we took two cars because we carried quite a lot of stuffs in the car. We were stopped, actually double crossed by these FSARS people.

“These guys searched both cars pointed a gun on my mum and said she is the leader of our criminal racket. Said she is the one sponsoring and leading us to crime. That’s how we found ourselves in their station.

“Their OC apologised to her after she had introduced herself, and we all did introduce ourselves. The police force needs to understand that most people actually have good paying jobs and can afford to live a good life, without going into something dirty.”

Although their demands to meet with Commissioner of Police Hakeem Odumosu were not met, the protesters refused to leave but converted the inroads to the command headquarters as sit-outs.

Their resilience later paid off as the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Operations, Ali Muhammed, later addressed them.

He sued for peace and cooperation to correct the anomalies.Similar Articles:

The drugs were burned

It has been reported that cannabis sativa farms worth over N1.5 billion located at Agba-Okete community in Igalamela-Adolu Local Government Area of Kogi, has been destroyed by operatives of National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

Kogi Commander of the NDLEA, Mr Alfred Adewunmi who spoke to newsmen on Tuesday evening after storming Kara forest with 80 NDLEA personnel and men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), said officers under his command discovered an entire community in the Eastern part of the state where cannabis cultivation is their major source of livelihood.

He said; “I tell you that I am really perplexed, and shocked that something as huge and enormous as this can be discovered in Kogi State.

“Our assumption had been that Kogi State, even though surrounded by some States that are notorious in Cannabis Sativa cultivation, was simply a transit point because of the strategic location of the State.

“However, to discover that within Kogi State we can have a plantation of this huge proportion is something that I must tell you has shocked me to my bone marrow.

“it is a very enormous plantation of Cannabis Sativa. It is not just a farmland. All of you have been in my entourage and we have walked within farms which is over four kilometers and are still within the farm. We started this operation since 10 in the morning.

“It is about 5:55pm. To begin to describe what I have seen today is to simply tell you that it will be a great deception to tell you that Kogi state is not being used as a place were cannabis sativa is cultivated.

“How will a whole community be cultivating cannabis sativa? Are we saying there is no legitimate business out there that would fetch them income? They dedicated about 4KM of their arable land to the cultivation of cannabis sativa. It is indeed worrisome and alarming.

“We have to muster five times the resources we have deployed today to achieve this great task. Here we have more than 80 officers of NDLEA, NSCDC, and to ensure that this over 40 hectares of cannabis farms land is totally destroyed”

Adewunmi said the prime suspect and owner of one of the farms, Ameh Joseph would soon be charged to Court. He added that they have intensified effort to arrest owners of the other cannabis farms.

Ameh who admitted being the owner of a section of the farm, said he ventured into cannabis sativa farming as a result of economic hardship. He also recalled being employed as a farm manager in charge of cannabis Sativa at Ogbese in Ondo State in 1995 with a yearly salary of between N85, 000 and N100,000.Similar Articles:

A Nigerian lady and her boyfriend have gotten into serious trouble after they tried to dupe a man who mistakenly transferred N1million into their account.

According to the victim, the girl had always begged him for money, saying her mom is sick and she needs to be treated. She sent her account number to him, and while trying to send N1million to someone, he mistakenly transferred it to her account.

She linked up with her boyfriend who chatted with a herbalist on WhatsApp and paid N30k to the herbalist to make him forget he gave them N1m.

The victim explained that he didn’t notice the error for days until his business colleague called to know why he hasn’t received the money.

He started his investigations and discovered that he sent it to the wrong account. He called this lady but her number wasn’t going. He later used someone else’s phone to call her and a man who is presumed to be her boyfriend picked the call and told him they scammed him of the N1m and he can’t get it back.

He reported the case to the state CID and they tracked the couple down. After going through their phone, they saw proof that they have been chatting with a herbalist who collected N30k from them to hypnotize the owner of the money and make him forget that he mistakenly gave someone money.

Nigerians protesting against SARS in Lagos
Nigerians living in Lagos state have began a three-day protest against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force.
The residents are demanding for the scrapping of SARS.
The protest is part of the push for the reform of the police system to put an end to the extra-judicial activities of the agency.
The protesters said the action will hold from Wednesday through Friday with a march to the Force Headquarters, Ikeja, Lagos, as well as the Lagos State Government House.
According to one of the organisers of the protest, the demands of the demonstrators include the need for the transparent prosecution of all officers involved in extra-judicial activities, justice for victims of extra-judicial activities as well as the call for the police to have a list of officers that have been found culpable of extra-judicial activities.
Other demands include “public enquiry on the activities of the unit in the past one year, compensation to be given to verifiable victims both dead and alive, tags on all policemen with names and job details, no police officer should be found in civil wear while on duty with a gun, police should stop going around in unidentifiable cars or buses and digital mediums for tracking cases with the police.”
Recall that musician, Azeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley, proposed a similar #ENDSARS protest but chickened out and cancelled it at the last minute.
Naira Marley then backtracked to condemn the agitation for the scrapping of SARS, describing those calling for its end as robbers.
Amnesty International has recorded about 82 reported cases of SARS brutality from 2017 to 2020.
