Australia to jail Nigerian student who imported $10m worth of drugs, on October 25


.
Federal prosecutors say ice with an estimated street value of about $10 million, which a Nigerian-born man imported to Canberra in ornate golden fish statues, could have had “calamitous consequences” if sold in the community.
.
Lawyers for Jackson Igwebuike, 34, agreed he acted as “more than just a mere courier” when he accepted delivery of about 8.47 grams of pure ice before he attempted to board a Murrays bus to Sydney with the drugs in his bag.
.
An ACT Supreme Court jury found him guilty of importing a commercial quantity of a border controlled drug in August. Igwebuike was caught in a police sting after Australian Border Force officers intercepted packages destined for Canberra in October 2015.
.
His trial heard the drugs were discovered when three 20 kilogram statues that arrived in a shipping crate from China were X-rayed by officers at Port Botany on October 8.
.
Inside one statue of a fish they found 43 packages that contained a combined total of 10.58 kilograms of methamphetamine. Igwebuike had gone to Australia to study at the University of Canberra.
.
He worked in the kitchen at the territory’s jail and used his income to make phone calls to his large family, including his wife, in Nigeria. He could be deported when
released, the court heard. He will be sentenced on October 25.

Model loses her sight in one eye after getting eyeball tattoo


.
Catt Gallinger, from Ottawa, Canada, decided to get a sclera tattoo, which changes the colour of the whites around your eye. She shared disturbing pictures of her eye, weeks after the treatment she now considers a “massive mistake”.
.
According to TheSun, the 24-year-old former pet nutritionist had the procedure four weeks ago and is still struggling to see out of one eye.
.
Sclera modification – in which a specialist injects a liquid into the eyeball to stain the whites of a person’s eye, is becoming popular among body modification fans.
.
But Catt said that her eyeball quickly began to ooze purple liquid. Concerned, she went to the hospital where she was given a dose of antibiotic drops.
.
Doctors then gave her steroid drops but after three weeks, her pain and blurry vision remained and the purple liquid appeared to be clumping around her cornea.
.
Catt said she wanted to modify her eye colour to “make me feel more at home in my body”. But she now is warning everyone against trying it. The former model said she has cancelled any future work and that she has spent hundreds on prescriptions over the past weeks.
.
Doctors and her surgeon have told her that her eyesight will not get better. She told the Sun Online that she advises anyone against trying it out.
.
For now, the prognosis is that her eyesight will either “go completely or stay a blurry mess” but she hopes surgery will prevent it from getting worse. Surgeons said her sclera tore from the size of needle used, depth and amount of ink inserted.
.
Doctors were also concerned that the equipment was not sterile and that there is an infection stuck in with the excess ink, she said.credit  : Sun

Men and women are not equal. At home, the man is the head – Tiwa Savage


.
Nigerian artiste, Tiwa Savage has side she doesn’t think men and women are equal. Speaking on the Midday show on The Beat 99.9FM with OAP Toolz, on gender equality, she said: “It’s real. I’m not going to say I’m completely comfortable with it but it is what it is. .
.
You have to deal with it. If it means you have to work 10 times harder than your male counterparts, don’t complain about it, do what you have to do. We all celebrate people like Oprah and Mo Abudu and we don’t actually realise what they have to do to get to that point. .
.
They probably had to do 20 times than their male counterparts. Once you get there, you don’t complain about how you get there. So, whatever it is you have to do as a female, you just have to get it done. .
.
I know I’ll (ruffle) a few feathers but I also don’t think men and women are equal, I don’t think that’s how God created us that way… especially in the household anyway. .
.
So I think as females when we realise that yeah we can be strong in our career, but when we are home we have to realise that the man is the head of the house.”

Vegas victim families could sue Mandalay Bay Hotel, from where the killer shot, for millions



Vegas victim families could sue Mandalay Bay Hotel, from where the killer shot, for millions

Beverly Hills lawyer, Adam Sack has said victims of the Las Vegas shooting, which occurred on Sunday night, could sue the Mandalay Bay hotel where the deranged killer stayed at for millions.
The attack carried out by Stephen Paddock, 64, from inside a suite in Mandalay Bay Hotel led to the death of 59 people with over 500 concertgoers still recovering from bullet sustained injuries. Sack told RadarOnline that victims could sue the killer, but considering how many people were affected in the attack, the killer's money couldn't possibly pay them all so they could eventually sue the hotel and also promoters of the concert that was taking place when the attack was carried out. 
Sack said: "Victims could try to get money from the shooter, they could probably obviously sue him. Considering how many victims were affected, it’s not enough. They’re going to want to sue the hotel and the concert promoters.
He continued: "The hotel had this guy get into his room, bringing up more than 25 guns, — it’s going to show that the hotel needed better security. There were cameras everywhere (recording) suspicious activity. The victims can easily sue for negligence — which covers everything. The hotel should’ve known and should’ve prevented what that guy did — bringing in so many suitcases with weapons and not screening him and not providing metal detectors."
Vegas victim families could sue Mandalay Bay Hotel, from where the killer shot, for millions
Paddock was in the room for three days planning his attack. During the days leading up to the mass murders, not a single hotel employee visited his room for cleaning or maintenance.
Sack said in anger: "The guy was drilling and setting up, and the hotel did nothing. They couldn’t even locate him at first, only when the smoke alarm went out from the gunpowder were they able to find him — so it was even an accident that they found him. Clearly, the security team was not protecting the guests. Even the windows — how easily he was able to shoot through the glass to target the concertgoers. The hotel needed stronger glass — bulletproof glass."
Sack also said the concert promoters were at fault for wrapping a fence around the venue such that people couldn’t escape when the attack took place.
Vegas victim families could sue Mandalay Bay Hotel, from where the killer shot, for millions
He said: "They put in a fence around the area so there was only one way in and one way out — people were basically trapped in. They could easily sue the promoter; it was dangerous; they didn’t have an emergency exit."
Paddock was wealthy and left a big bank account to his name. However, Sack says the severity of this attack will cost much more than the several millions he has in his account.
"The shooter is rich — let’s say he has $5 million in the bank — just one victim who was shot in the leg or something could cost a million dollars. Think about one who needs rehabilitative surgery. You’re talking 500 people, and let’s say each will get $1 million, it’s a huge lawsuit, you’re looking at $500 million give or take," Sack explains. "Also consider the recovery time, and how bad the injury is. If you’re a victim that was killed — let’s say you’re a brain surgeon and you were expected to get lots of money in your life but you were killed — the family could sue for millions. So it will determine what your earning power was before you were killed."
Sack also said that family of the victims can sue for damages based on the claim called "loss of consortium" — where a family member claims damages for loved ones killed in negligent acts.
Sack said: "I’m telling you right now, this is going to be — once the drama dies down — it’s going to be lawsuits after lawsuits. Everyone will sue everyone. The hotel will sue the city because there wasn’t property development of the road, they can sue the one who designed the hotel — you can dream up all kinds of lawsuits that prove this attack could’ve been prevented."

Over 200 youths in two communities threaten to disrupt Super Eagles' match against Zambia on Saturday



Over 200 youths in two communities threaten to disrupt Super Eagles

Youths of the two communities, Obio Etoi and Obio Ofot, where the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo is located, have threatened to disrupt the World Cup qualifying match between Nigeria and Zambia this weekend.

They want the Akwa Ibom state government to fulfill its promises to them if they want the match to go on in peace.

Youths from the communities numbering about 200 with different placards alleged that despite the beautiful stadium, members of the communities were still unemployed, while the state government has not constructed roads into the communities as the parties agreed before the stadium was built.  

Sunday Peters, the youth leader of Obio Etoi village, who led the protesters, said since 2011 when Julius Berger commenced work at the stadium the villagers have nothing to show for it. “The company blocked all diversion ways to the community with their heavy equipment and machines, at a point we had to sell our land to maintain the road. That is why we are crying to the state government and we will continue to cry until something is done” he said.

According to him, because of Julius Berger’s action, the communities within the stadium have become flooded as most water ways have been blocked by its equipment.  Eteidung Ezekiel Inyang Ekott, the village head of the Obio Etoi, said that the youths’ action was not meant to disturb the Super Eagles’ match that is coming to the communities, but to attract government attention to their promises to the communities.

He said several letters from his palace to the state government reminding it of the plight of the host communities had been ignored.  Ephraim Inyang, the state Commissioner of Works, who came to the protest venue with Charles Udo, the Information Commissioner, said the road had been earmarked for construction. He added that works will commence in a week’s time.

Former first lady, Patience Jonathan files a N2bn suit against EFCC for violation of her fundamental rights

Former first lady, Patience Jonathan files a N2bn suit against EFCC for violation of her fundamental rights

Patience Jonathan, the wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, has filed a N2 billion rights enforcement suit against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).  

In the law suit filed at the Federal High Court in Abuja, the former first lady is praying for an order for general damages and compensation in the sum of N2 billion against the EFCC for the violation of her fundamental rights.  

Patience Jonathan alleged in the suit that the EFCC has incessantly harassed her through negative media publications, denigrating and degrading her person as corrupt, without any invitation, trial or conviction by a court.  She wants the court to declare that the said harassment is a violation of her rights under section 37 of the 1999 Constitution.  

She is also seeking a declaration that the “indiscriminate” freezing of her bank accounts and those of her relatives by the EFCC under the guise of investigation of proceeds of crime, without any invitation or interrogation by the respondent is a violation of her rights to own property and to fair hearing guaranteed under sections 44 and 36(1) of the 1999 Constitution.  

She further asked for “an order of court restraining the EFCC or any person acting on its behalf from further violating” her fundamental rights.  The case has been assigned to Justice John Tsoho and will come up on November 16, 2017 for hearing.

Mayor of Mozambique,?Mahamudo Amurane shot dead outside his home

Mahamudo Amurane, the mayor of Nampula city in northern Mozambique has been shot dead outside his home.

He was killed hours after he led a ceremony to celebrate the Day of Peace a public holiday to commemorate the 1992 signing of an accord to end a 16-year civil war between the ruling Frelimo party and Renamo opposition.  

Police says, Mahamudo Amurane was shot three times in the abdomen by an unknown gunman and the motive for the killing is still unclear.

Late Amurane was a member of the opposition Mozambique Democratic Movement who planned to run for a second term in next year's municipal elections for another party or as an independent.

Reacting to his death,  Amnesty International’s Regional Director for Southern Africa Deprose Muchena said:'the killing of Mahamudo Amurane is tragic, deplorable and deeply suspicious. Mozambique authorities must launch a prompt, thorough, transparent, and impartial investigation into this killing, make public the report of any such investigation, and ensure that suspected perpetrators are brought to justice in a fair trial'.

Directors keep telling me
