A Lagos High Court in Igbosere has sentenced a self-proclaimed site engineer and housing agent, Babatunde Habeeb, to 1,230 years imprisonment for a N28 million scam.

Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye convicted Habeeb, also known as Babatunde Salaudeen, of defrauding 101 accommodation seekers under the pretext of renting them 13 apartments in a building at Alapere-Ketu, Lagos.

She found him guilty of 82 counts of conspiring with his elder brother, Alhaji Ishola Salaudeen and obtaining the N28m under false pretense. According to the prosecutor, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Alhaji Salaudeen, who owns the property, is at large.

The court said the EFCC proved its case beyond reasonable doubt. According to the commission, the convict committed the offenses in 2013.

“I’ve killed over 100 people” – Suspected Assassin Ade Lawyer

Recently arrested 39-year-old vicious assassin, Adeola Williams aka Ade Lawyer, has confessed that he has killed over 100 since assassinating people was his source of livelihood.

“But now I’m born again,” he said while being paraded. Williams, a father of three from Ijebu Igbo, Ogun State, was recently arrested over the killing of one Ganiyu Ayinla, aka Pinero, who was the P.A to Adekunle Lawal, aka Kunle Poly, the NURTW chairman in Idumota, Lagos.

While giving account of his activities, he said, “If I get a chance to regain my freedom in this life, I will never go back to crime again. I also advise the millions of youths out there that crime does not pay.

I was into crime for over 20 years and despite the risk involved and lack of rest of mind, I have nothing to show for it except the uncompleted bungalow in Ibadan.

I have nothing on ground to fall back on despite taking the lives of more than 100 Nigerians. May God forgive me.”

However, Williams said he decided to take the life of Kunle Poly for refusing to talk to the state chairman of the union, Tajudeen Agbede, on his behalf. He said he worked hard for Agbede to emerge as the chairman but that he was dumped after the election.

Williams added, “I thought about my predicament because my wife was heavily pregnant and the money I was getting from Oluomo wasn’t enough and I wasn’t ready to use my gun for armed robbery, so I decided to end the life of the man who refused to help me mend my relationship with Agbede.”

He said after the attack on Kunle Poly, he was later arrested but that he didn’t want to go down alone, thus he indicted some other persons.

He added, “I decided to rope in Olorunwa because he was the one who ruined my life. It was my support for him during his fight with MC Oluomo that made me to lose my position at the union.

After he was removed from office, he had so much money but he was wasting it on women and movie actors and he refused to help me. I was just so bitter, so I framed him.” He said he also decided to lie against MC Oluomo and Prince Kazeem Aletu.

A Nigerian woman celebrates her housemaid of 13th years who recently gained admission into the university.

Please read below:

On 17th February, 2005, my husband brought her home as my house help. She was smaller than l wanted. I needed a much bigger girl, but the mum could only allow her as the elder sister was elsewhere. The only option was to manage her, but managing meant that l had to nurse her as she was too small to even wash her own clothes, the breakable kitchenwares etc.

It wasn't also easy to raise a child with certain orientations.

But l tried. When the task became too tedious,
I packaged her home, but the father gave us a mind boggling question: if she is your daughter, will you throw her away? Please, train her as yours. I want her different.

As stunning as that question sounded, l thank God that l took that challenge seriously and to my heart..
I teach, I scream, I plead, l appeal and l advice.
To make sure she turns out better than she would.
Sometimes, she makes me furious, laugh, cry, and proud, just like now. From Primary 2, she had gone through to secondary, made her papers, have trained on computer literacy before going for skill acquisition.

Today, she has moved to a higher level. She is matriculating at Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education, and l am so happy that our 13years together is not a waste after all.

She has long ceased to be a maid in my home.
She is now Aunty's Auntie, my little sister, my children's Auntie. And no one knows she is not my sibling.

Uchechi, today is the beginning of a new life for you.
We are happy for you. Sky is your jumping pad.
We pray that you graduate with flying colours. And we continue to pray for financial breakthrough so that you do not suffer any stress concerning your education.
Congratulations, dear. We are super proud of you.

Wow! Wow!! Wow!!!

Senator Melaye to appeal judgment ordering INEC to restart his recall

Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West Senatorial District in the National Assembly has vowed to appeal the judgment delivered by the Appeal court on Friday ordering the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to restart his recall process.

The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja on Friday in a unanimous decision ruled that the recall process initiated by INEC to recall Senator Melaye from the Senate be restarted because there was no cause of action and the federal high court that initially adjudicated the case lacked jurisdiction and ought not to have entertained the case in the first place.

The process was halted when Melaye filed an appeal against the Federal High Court Abuja ordering the recall to go on.

Reacting to the Appeal Court judgment, Melaye urged his supporters not to be worried as he would soon be vindicated.

In his tweet after the judgment, Melaye said: “The judgement by the appeal court today is nothing to be bothered about. I urge my supporters to be relaxed as though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death yet I fear no evil. Every lie has an expiry date. We are Appealing the judgement immediately.”
