Saudi Arabia Arrests 11 Princes, Including Billionaire Alwaleed bin Talal accused of corruption


Saudi Arabia Arrests 11 Princes, Including Billionaire Alwaleed bin Talal accused of corruption
Today, Saudi Arabia announced the arrest of prominent billionaire investor Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, plus at least 10 other princes, four ministers and tens of former ministers.  

The announcement of the arrests was made over Al Arabiya, the Saudi-owned satellite network whose broadcasts are officially approved. Prince Alwaleed’s arrest sends shock waves both through the kingdom and the world’s major financial centers.  He controls the investment firm Kingdom Holding and is one of the world’s richest men, owning or having owned major stakes in News Corp, Citigroup, Apple, Twitter and many other well-known companies.

The prince also controls satellite television networks watched across the Arab world.  The sweeping campaign of arrests appears to be the latest move to consolidate the power of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the favorite son and top adviser of King Salman.  At 32, the crown prince is already the dominant voice in Saudi military, foreign, economic and social policies, stirring murmurs of discontent in the royal family that he has amassed too much personal power, and at a remarkably young age.

The king had decreed the creation of a powerful new anti-corruption committee, headed by the crown prince, only hours before the committee ordered the arrests. Al Arabiya said that the anticorruption committee has the right to investigate, arrest, ban from travel, or freeze the assets of anyone it deems corrupt.

Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi dethrones two traditional rulers
According to reports, the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has dethroned two traditional rulers, for extorting the mother of an accused.

The affected former traditional rulers include the village head of Hungu, Ibrahim Shehu, and the ward head of Zangwan, Galal Nadabo Adamu.  The deposed were said to have allegedly connived with a police inspector, Umaru Abubakar, probing the case of the accused.

They were said to have collected N33,000 from the N50,000 they demanded from the accused’s mother, named Hauwa Sule from the Albasu Local Government Area of the state. The emir reportedly caused an investigation to be done into the case when he was informed.  

The probe of the two deposed former village heads were done by the District Head of Albasu, Bashir Albasu, who is also the Katikan Kano.  Emir Sanusi in the report warned the traditional title holders to desist from actions that could taint the image of the Kano Emirate Council.

Dad kills his 14-yr-old son because he's gay (photos)

Dad kills his 14-yr-old son because he
A 53-year-old dad Wendell Melton shot and killed his 14-year-old son Giovanni over his  sexual orientation.

"Giovanni was abused physically and mentally and spiritually for many, many years," said Sonja Jones, Giovanni's former foster mom. Over the phone, Jones spoke of the teen she loved as one of her own. .

Jones says she was told by another family member that part of the argument that led to the deadly shooting was over Giovanni's sexual orientation. Jones says Wendell Melton had problems with it. .

"He hated the fact that his son was gay," said Jones. "I'm sure that inside of his mind, he would rather have a dead son than a gay son." Court records show Wendell Melton worked for United Airlines. He once was a pilot. .

Jones says Wendell threatened his son before. "I'm hearing his dad had caught him with his boyfriend before and pulled out a gun on him," said Jones. Giovanni was a student at Coronado High School.

Jones says a beautiful life was taken away because of ignorance. "I hope they throw the book at him. I hope he never sees the light of day," said Jones. "I hope every day when he looks in the mirror, he sees his son's face."

'Jonathan bought you a car without announcing it’ - Reno Omokri slams Buhari for publicizing Ekwueme’s treatment


Reno Omokri, ex-aide of former President Goodluck Jonathan, has criticised the government of President Muhammadu Buhari for publicising the overseas medical treatment approved for Alex Ekwueme, former vice-president.  

The presidency had announced that Buhari directed that the ailing former vice-president be flown abroad for medical treatment, but Omokri took an exception to the publicity, accusing the president of attempting to score “cheap political point”.

Omokri said the overseas treatment was Ekwueme’s right and went on to say former President Goodluck Jonathan during his time in office purchased bullet-proof cars for Buhari without announcing it.

Reno in a Facebook post wrote “treatment abroad is a right of an ex-vice president. President Muhammadu Buhari didn’t do Ekwueme a favour. President Goodluck Jonathan purchased bulletproof vehicles for Buhari without announcing it. It is only a petty and shallow administration eager to score cheap political points with a sick man’s health that announces that the President has given the man his due!".

Trafficker arrested while transporting two willing teenagers to Abidjan for prostitution (photos)


The Operatives of Rapid Response Squad of Lagos State Police Command have arrested a suspected human trafficker while trying to transport two teenage girls through Lagos to Abidjan in Ivory Coast for commercial sex work.
.
The suspect, Martha Edea, 30, a mother of two from Ogoja in Cross River State, was nabbed in Lagos after travelling with the young girls from Benin, Edo State.
.
Martha confessed to the police that she was trafficked to Ivory Coast by one Mariam who told her there were chances of securing a good job in the country but was later introduced to sex work where she slaved for months in paying back her custodian who brought her to Abidjan.
.
Martha said: “I worked for three months to pay Mariam N180,000 to balance her for my transportation into Ivory Coast and also for connecting me.” She added that Mariam after collecting the money travelled to Spain abandoning her as a sex worker.
.
The mother of two who left her children in the village with her mother couldn’t find a headway in the business after her connector had travelled to Spain. She further explained that she yielded to her friend’s advise to come back to Nigeria to recruit young girls for the business.

Martha however, came back to Nigeria and headed for Edo State where she was told that she will find young girls willing to travel out of the country to hustle as strumpets.
.
On her part, one of her victims, Francess Bamidele, a 19-year-old secondary school dropout, said she was elated to hear that prostitution is very lucrative in Abidjan so she opted in for it.

Brake Failure: Four crushed, 10 injured by a trailer in Ibadan (photos)



Four persons were crushed to death yesterday in Ibadan when a truck conveying sharp sand reportedly suffered brake failure along the Moniya-Iseyin road.
.
At least ten persons also suffered varying degree of injuries while five motorcycles and three tricycles were destroyed beyond repair. The victims included a motorcycle operator, a woman, an underaged boy and a trader at the Moniya butcher market.
.
While all the victims met their misfortune at the point of doing business, the underaged boy was on an errand to purchase vegetables at the market. The driver of the truck was said to have escaped from the scene of the incident unhurt.
.
The casualty figure would have been higher but for a member of the transport union unit at the Moniya garage who alerted people to scamper to safety following the haphazard manner the truck was descending the hilly road.
.
It was gathered the driver was struggling to gain control of the truck suspected to have left a garage within the Moniya axis.
.
Police Public Relations Officer, Oyo State Command Adekunle Ajisebutu said the erring driver of the tipper has been arrested and the truck moved to the station for VIO inspection.

Lady lashed by policeman after her husband’s sidechic got her arrested for slapping her (photos)



A 29-year-old lady identified as Sarah Darko has been brutalized over her refusal to enter a police cell in Ghana. According to reports, Darko was lashed by one ASP Emmanuel Osei, the officer in charge of the Dompim police station.
.
Darko had been arrested in the Tarkwa Nsueam Municipality of the Western Region, and sent to the station for allegedly slapping another woman in a marital dispute. According to her, the police officer first hit her with a plastic object and later with a stick, when she refused to enter the station’s cell.
.
Narrating her ordeal to Citi News, Sarah explained that “In August this year, I returned from my two months trip to my room to meet my husband and another woman.
.
Out of anger and frustration, I slapped the woman and she in return hit me with a phone. The matter was taken to an elder in the town where it was amicably settled.
.
But when we all thought the matter has been put to rest, two months later, with me staying peacefully with my husband, the lady retuned this Wednesday 1st November to my house with three police officers. They told me I was under arrest.
.
I joined them to the Dompim Police station. After informing me that it was upon my rival’s instruction I was brought there, they asked me to go into the cell which I refused.
.
Inspector Emmanuel Osei started forcing me into the cell but again I told him the matter has been settled already so I will not go in there. So I held the counter table when the inspector was forcing me into the cells.
.
He started hitting my hand with a plastic ruler. Then he went for a stick and started whipping me hard on my buttocks and in my palms until he finally forced me into the cell”.
.

Darko went through the ordeal in the presence of his husband, one Francis Tofega, who had also gone to the police station over the same matter. After several pleas from her husband, she was released on bail. Darko, feeling dissatisfied, has taken the matter to the Nsueam Police station.

It was a mistake, I didn’t fight for my marriage — Rachael Oniga (photos)


Veteran Nollywood actress, Rachael Oniga, recently had a chat with Olusola Ricketts of Punchng, about her failed marriage. On how she coped as a single mother of three, she said: “My first born, Olamide, was four years old when I left my marriage.
.
I had to put them all in boarding schools. That is one of the most painful things I have had to do. Whenever I talk about this, it always brings me close to tears. My children paid the price for something they knew nothing about.
.
The factor (her late husband married another woman) that led to the end of my marriage made me determined to prove to him (ex-husband) that I could stand without any man.
.
I was not ready to give any other man the chance to be a hindrance to my children and me. I also made up my mind that I would dedicate my life totally to my children. I toughened my heart and blocked every opportunity to go into any relationship.
.
I saw myself as equal to any man, regardless of how much money he might have. I didn’t want any man to treat my children badly. I was working for my money and I put my kids in good schools. So, what do I need a man for?
.
I felt all men just wanted was to see the beauty of a woman and walk away. With what my ex-husband did to me, you expect me to trust men again? Before we got separated, he was a good and ideal man.
.
But he married another woman and I moved on. But I miss the whole union thing, friendship and sharing things together. My advice to young ladies is to keep and fight for their marriages.
.
Perhaps, I was naïve; I never fought for what was mine, but I still thank God. He made many failed attempts at reconciliation. He knew the type of person I am; that when I say no, it is no.
.

Before death took him (ex-husband) away, he called many times. It was my mistake. I should have fought for my marriage. Any young lady must try her best and fight for her marriage. My decision at that time might not have been the best, but I still thank God. I have my regrets too as a human being.”

Cleric gives the condition under which men can marry (photos)


Mazen Al-Sersawi, a prominent Egyptian Salafist cleric has suggested Islam allows men to have sex with their illegitimate daughters and marry them.
.
He cited prominent Muslim scholar Imam Al-Shafi’i as saying because illegitimate daughters are not officially attributed to their fathers, they can be married to them.
.
He makes the claims in a video which has gone viral and he has been widely criticized for the comments. In the video, Al-Sersawi said Imam Al-Shafi’i is known for saying men may marry their own daughters that are born out of wedlock.
.
Al-Sersawi, who teaches at the prestigious Egypt’s Al-Azhar University, claims Al-Shafi’I says a girl born in an adulterous relationship is ‘not really his daughter’.
.

Because an illegitimate daughter does not carry her father’s name, ‘she is not his daughter according to Sharia. She is not officially attributed to him’.
