KILLERS ON FACEBOOK TO DIE BY HANGING.

1. As a journalist living in Festac town Lagos, I broke the news on Facebook in 2012 how two male undergraduates, Okwumo Nwabufo and Olisaeloka Ezike, that were cousins, lured their Facebook friend to LAGOS. Her name was Cynthia Osokugo. She was a postgraduate student at Keffi and operated a boutique at Keffi called DRESS CODE. She was a daughter of an army general.
2. The young men who were yahoo boys that operated at Festac Town in Lagos posed as importers of shoes and bags and promised to give her large quantity on credit. She came down to buy from them and collect others on credit. The dupers on the Facebook booked a room for her at Room C1 at Cosmilla Hotel, Lake View Estate, Festac Town, July 22, 2012. When she checked into a room, they gave her a Ribena fruit juice to drink. The convicts had drugged Cynthia by putting Rohypnol in her Ribena drink.
3. Because the drug made her dizzy, they took turn to rape her and recorded the nasty act with a laptop. They took her ATM cards and tortured her to release the pin code
4. After which they chained her hands to her back and secured same with a padlock. The deceased’s legs were also chained while her mouth was stuffed with a handkerchief and part of the weave-on that she wore on her head. A tape was thereafter fastened across her mouth to secure the materials stuffed in her mouth in place. The made away with her phones, clothes, shoes and other belongings.
5. The Lagos State Government had on February 8, 2013 arraigned Nwabufo and Ezike on six counts of conspiracy, murder and stealing, contrary to sections 231, 221 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011.
.6. In a judgment delivered on Thursday, about five years after the crime, Justice Akinlade ruled: “In their attempt to steal Cynthia’s property, they stole her life. They were not even remorseful. But for the efforts of the police and the ministry of justice we wouldn’t have been able to do anything. This court cannot change the law.” Finally, the judge held, “I pronounce the judgment of this court upon you, Okwumo Nwabufo and Olisaeloka Ezike, that both of you be hung by the neck, until you are dead.
7. Please always remember that killers, kidnappers, ritual killers and evil men and women are among your friends on Facebook, whatsapp, Instagram and others. Be very very careful about what you discussed with them and where you meet days. We are in evil and wicked generation.

Pay salary now: Buhari orders CBN, finance ministry to release Paris Club refunds to states immediately

President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun and the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, to act appropriately and with dispatch in releasing the second tranche of the London-Paris Club refunds to the states in order to ease their financial hardships.

The President, who addressed the meeting of the National Economic Council made up of state governors and chaired by the vice-president on Thursday in Abuja, however, made a strong case for settlement of unpaid salaries and pension liabilities of their workers.

“I will not rest until I address those issues that affect our people. One of these basic things is the issue of salaries. It is most important that workers are able to feed their families, pay rent and school fees, then other things can follow,”he said.

President Buhari, who went round the Council Chambers to greet the governors one after another, praised the unity of the Forum of State Governors. He thanked them profusely for their display of “love and respect” to him.

The President said he was overwhelmed by his recent experience in which states, irrespective of political differences charged their citizens to pray in mosques and churches for his well-being and apologized to Governors for barring them from visits to him while he rested in London.

“I didn’t want government to move to London. I wanted it to remain here and I am glad it did,”He said.

After narrating what he went through while on that vacation, President Buhari noted the suggestion by the Governors for him to add more rest, but insisted that he would remain relentless in the pursuit of the interest of the Nigerian people at all times.

This, according to him, was the only way to show his gratitude to the people who, he said, “had given so much to me. I was overwhelmed by the celebration of my return all across the country.”

The Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, Abdul-Aziz Yari of Zamfara State assured the President, on behalf of his colleagues, that they will continue to support his policies and actions which they had adjudged as being in the nation’s best interest.
