A 34-year-old lady has lamented bitterly after giving the man she was dating, financial support to travel abroad, but returned home and refused to marry her .
According to the lady, she personally sponsored his trip abroad, only for him to return home after 7 years and offered her N50 million compensation saying he can’t marry her because she is old.
Read her story below:
”I have been hearing of how some men use and dump ladies after getting what they wanted from the ladies, but it happened to me and I’m totally speechless, like is this for real?
A man i singlehandedly sponsored to overseas, years ago has finally returned and indeed it’s a memorable season for me and my family.
Imagine after i used my savings to finance him to travel out of the country for more than 7 years, all of a sudden, he came back and told me he is no longer interested in our relationship simply for one reason best known for him.
Obina and i have been dating for more than 10 years and even before he left Nigeria, i was the one taking care of him because he was working for a popular transport company in the southeastern region of the country and his salary wasn’t enough, being the first son of his parents, a lot of responsibilities were draining him, so i decided to assist him as a girlfriend.
Then i used to sell food items, i mean wholesale, but because of love i decided to help Obinna, after all anything he acquires tomorrow is ours. That was my initial thought.
So, I singlehandedly sponsored him to travel abroad hoping that once he comes back we will get married which was his promise before he left.
After waiting for 7 years he has finally returned and has made a lot of wealth, but before he came back. He had already brought three houses, one in Abuja, the other in Lagos and another in the east, which he bought for his siblings (Family house). He also built a house for his parents at home.
Since he returned, we have been going from one hotel to another, different parties and for two months, he never mentioned anything about marriage to me, talk more of seeing my kinsmen and I’m not getting younger, by April next year i will be 34 years old.
After waiting for three months, i decided to ask him about our marriage just like we discussed before he travelled. I received the shock of my life on that very morning, i asked him the question.
Afraid that having children with her “ugly” but otherwise great husband would cause them to end up looking horrible, a Ghanian woman allegedly decided to secretly have four kids with her handsome ex-boyfriend.
African social media has been awash with news of a vain Ghanian woman who married a successful, hardworking, and caring man despite his less than adequate looks. The fact that he was ugly, by her standards, didn’t bother her much until they decided to try for a baby. She loved everything else about him, but she couldn’t risk giving birth to ugly children, so she always made sure to take birth control pills after sleeping with him. At one point, they went to a fertility clinic and they both turned out to be healthy, which the woman already knew, so in order not to raise her husband’s suspicion, she came out with a twisted yet ingenious plan…
The anonymous woman detailed her diabolical plan in a letter to Accra-based radio station Hitz FM, revealing that in order to make sure she gave birth to attractive children, and also make her husband happy, she decided to contact her handsome ex-boyfriend. He was also married, but he had always been promiscuous, so it wasn’t hard for the woman to convince him to have an affair.
In order to avoid unnecessary drama, the woman always told her lover that she had taken birth control, when in fact she had meant to get pregnant. She would then sleep with her husband as well, to make him think that he had impregnated her. This way, she was the only one who knew who her beautiful children’s father was.
The woman’s plan worked beautifully, and she was allegedly able to give birth to three attractive children, with the fourth on the way as well. Unfortunately, things got a little complicated recently, after her husband won an American visa lottery. She claims that the process also requires DNA tests for the applicant’s family at some point, which will reveal that the kids are not really his.
The concerned woman asked the radio show host how best to handle the situation, tell her husband the truth now, or wait until the test result comes in.
A former Navy Commodore, Kunle Olawunmi, has said that Boko Haram terrorists mentioned names of current governors, senators and Aso Rock officials as sponsors during interrogation but the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has demonstrated an unwillingness to go after the high-profile politicians for reasons best known to him.
Olawunmi spoke on Wednesday when he featured on Channels Television’s ‘Sunrise Daily’ breakfast programme
He described as an “aberration”, Tuesday attack by bloodthirsty bandits on the Kaduna campus of Nigeria’s foremost military university, the Nigerian Defence Academy, where two military officers were killed and another kidnapped.
“It is an aberration; you don’t attack the Nigerian Defence Academy and get away with it,” he lamented, adding that the NDA, like other military environments in the country, carelessly opens its doors to everyone on Friday for Jumat prayer.
‘Terrorists profile security environments during Muslim prayer on Friday’
Olawunmi said terrorists and criminals profile military environments during the weekly Muslim prayer on Fridays.
He said, “In 2017, I carried out an investigation by the minister of defence that wanted me to check what was going on with the training and the security there (NDA).
I remember I spent about a week in the NDA with the commandant and the staff but something struck me: every Friday, the gate of NDA is thrown open and everybody has access to pray in the mosque.
“On Fridays, you are going to see the same thing happening across all military formations in the country…If you go to Defence Headquarters, I served at the Defence Headquarters as the Deputy Director, Defence Administration between 2015 and 2017, throughout my two years at the Defence Headquarters, I received visitors twice because of the strict security architecture there but every Friday, the gate of the Defence Headquarters is thrown wide open for everybody to come in and observe Jumat
That is the time the terrorists have the time to profile our security environment. It has always been the case. I have served the military intelligence for the past 35 years. Our problem is religion and socio-cultural.”
Furthermore, Olawunmi, a Professor of Global Security Studies, said he was a member of the Intelligence Brief at the Defence Headquarters during the leadership of the then Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Abayomi Olonisakin (retd.).
The intelligence expert said he told the then CDS that the centre of gravity of the Boko Haram insurgency ravaging the North-East and spreading to other parts of Nigeria was the sponsors.
“I told General Olonisakin then that the centre of this problem cannot be solved the same way we solved the problem of the Niger Delta. The Niger Delta problem was solved during (Ex-President Umaru) Yar’adua basically by me and I told them that we can’t use that same template for Boko Haram.
“I told General Olonisakin to look at the centre of gravity of the problem. I was made a member of the committee in 2016-2017 including (the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Ibrahim) Attahiru that died.
“I told them that the centre of gravity of Boko Haram in Nigeria is the sponsors of the programme. It was beyond us because the job we needed to do was kinetic but we cannot resolve issues of sponsors of Boko Haram that were in Buhari’s government that we know them. That was why we couldn’t pursue that aspect that could have resolved the issue (insurgency) because we need to arrest people.”
‘Why Buhari refused to prosecute 400 Boko Haram sponsors’ The PUNCH had reported that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, earlier in the year said the Nigerian Government arrested some Bureau De Change operators who were facilitating the transfer of money to Boko Haram terrorists.
Olawunmi said the government has not been able to prosecute the sponsors because it is allegedly partisan.
He said, “Recently, 400 people were gathered as sponsors of Boko Haram, why is it that the Buhari government has refused to try them? Why can’t this government bring them to trial if not that they are partisan and part of the charade that is going on?
“You remember this Boko Haram issue started in 2012 and I was in the military intelligence at that time. We arrested those people. My organisation actually conducted interrogation and they (suspects) mentioned names. I can’t come on air and start mentioning names of people that are presently in government that I know that the boys that we arrested mentioned. Some of them are governors now, some of them are in the Senate, some of them are in Aso Rock.
“Why should a government decide to cause this kind of embarrassment and insecurity to the sense of what happened yesterday (Tuesday attack on NDA)?” he queried, adding that terrorist financiers want to turn Nigeria to a Taliban type of country.
‘DSS has information on terrorism sponsors but can’t act without Buhari’s order’ Olawunmi also said that the Department of State Services has “tremendous information on terrorists but they can’t do anything except the body language of the Commander-In-Chief”.
He, however, expressed hope that the next Nigerian President in 2023 might have the willpower to bring the high-profile sponsors of Boko Haram to book.
The PUNCH had earlier reported that a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Obadiah Mailafia, said in August 2020 that repentant terrorists revealed that a serving northern governor is a Boko Haram leader.
For over 10 years, the Boko Haram terror group had killed thousands of Nigerians in the North-East. The sect had also burnt down and bombed scores of villages as well as churches. The Nigerian Army and the Presidency had at several times claimed the group had been ‘technically defeated’ and ‘weakened’ but the bloodthirsty terrorist faction continues to strike with daring effrontery and crude savagery.
The Federal Executive Council has approved the reintroduction of toll collections on some selected dual carriageways across the country.
This is as it exempted diplomatic, military, para-military vehicles, tricycles, motorcycles from the scheme.
Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, disclosed these on Wednesday while briefing the State House correspondents at the end of the weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The decision was made almost two decades after the Olusegun Obasanjo’s administration dismantled all toll plazas on federal roads across the country in 2003.
Fashola said his ministry presented a memo which the council approved to reintroduce tollgates on dual carriageways of the 35,000km federal roads.
These roads, he explained, amounted to only 14.3 per cent of the entire 35,000km stretch of federal roads that were dual carriageways and would be eligible for tolling with vehicles paying between N200 and N500 toll per trip, depending on their brand while diplomatic, military, para-military as well as tricycles and motorcycles would be exempted.
The minister added that dual carriageways represented only 5,050km out of the total 35,000km.
He said, “So the total network of roads today, assuming we wanted to start today, which we’re not, that will be eligible for tolling on the federal network will be 14.3 per cent of the total network. So, 85.27 per cent will not be eligible for tolling.
“We have seen that most of those dual carriageways also have alternative roads, but they are single carriageways; that’s why we left them. So, the only exception to single carriageway are some bridges and they are listed in the regulation.”
The minister said with the FEC approving the reintroduction of toll plazas on selected roads, it was now working modalities to determine how soon the tolling system would take off.
He said, “The Ministry of Works and Housing presented a policy memorandum for the approval of federal roads, bridges, tolling policy, and also a regulation that will provide a legal framework for the tolling policy.
“So, we have taken another step. So let me be clear, tolls are not going to start tomorrow. So let us be clear about that.”
Fashola stressed that the open tolling system to be introduced would not commence until the affected roads were motorable while operational agreements would have to be negotiated with relevant government agencies.
The Minister also said the toll collected would not only be used to maintain the roads but would also be used to construct new ones while the toll system would be electronically driven for transparency.
Fashola noted that FG consulted widely with public and private sector stakeholders before agreeing to reintroduce toll on federal highways.
The popular Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abass is popularly known as Hushpuppi is currently facing criminal charges in the United States.
Hushpuppi has been charged for conspiracy to launder money obtained from business email, compromise fraud, and other scams.
The case is becoming more serious because if he’s found guilty in the court of law, he’s likely to spend years in prison.
(Dr. kemi Olunloyo)
The popular Nigerian Journalist, Dr. Kemi Olunloyo allegedly reveals that Hushpuppi has mentioned a female media personality for helping him launder millions of dollars for him to hide and move around for business
In Dr. Kemi Olunloyo’s message, she advises the On-Air Personality to immediately hire a US lawyer because the money laundering issue is getting serious.
Recall that, Hushpuppi was linked to the already suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari for collecting bribes from Hushpuppi
On the other hand, Abba Kyari says He only acted as a debt collector for Hushpuppi, and did not collect N8m bribe from him.
The disgraced police commissioner was suspended on Saturday.
Abba Kyari on Tuesday denied collecting bribes from Ramon ‘Hushpuppi’ Abbas to detain a gang member Chibuzo Vincent, saying the notorious fraudster only sent him receipts of N8 million transaction to help him recover a loan.
Mr Kyari’s comment marked a stark breakaway from his initial defence following his indictment by the United States. The police chief had initially claimed in a Facebook statement on July 29 that he had no ties to Hushpuppi, saying the con artist only sent him N300,000 to help him purchase native wears.
But following Peoples Gazette’s report of how he collected N8 million from Hushpuppi, Mr Kyari edited his Facebook post on Tuesday night and changed his story as he came under widespread public ridicule and police administrative action. He said the N8 million reported by The Gazette, which was subsequently reported by other media outlets, was for him to collect as an outstanding debt owed to Hushpuppi, and not as a bribe for him to hold Chibuzo for the scamming of Qatari businessperson to pull through as alleged by the FBI in court filings.
“Nobody demanded or collected any money from Abbas Hushpuppi. He can be interviewed Publicly in the Presence of world media by the people holding him to confirm this. He also called for another case in June 2020 and complained about a financial transaction with a second person whom he said his friend sent 8million naira to and pleaded for his friends money to be recovered.
“He sent transaction slips and other evidences to prove their case against the person, All these can be verified from the Hushpuppi since he is still in Custody. And it can be verified from person who collected the 8million naira from Hushpuppi’s friend whom they complained about is alive and is in Nigeria. Generally Whatever investigation steps/Tactics that is being taken in most cases especially on the Parties in this type of case from January to June is not for public consumption. This is the true story,” Mr Kyari said.

Barely four hours after changing his story, Mr Kyari deleted the entire post from his Facebook page. He did not return The Gazette’s requests for comments about his decision to take down the statement.
MoreSo, Police Service Commission HAs RevealED Why Abba Kyari Could be Sacked
The Police Service Commission (PSC) has disclosed that an outright dismissal is one of the penalties that can be imposed on a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Abba Kyari, if he is found guilty of the allegations against him.
Abba Kyari, a Borno-born Deputy Commissioner of Police, was recently indicted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a law enforcement agency in the United States of America.
Ramon Abbas, a suspected billionaire fraudster, also known as Hushpuppi, confessed that he bribed Abba Kyari to arrest someone who outsmarted him in a $1.1 million scam.
However, Austin Braimoh, the spokesperson for the PSC has spoken about the likely disciplinary actions that Kyari might face if he is culpable.
Austin told Channels TV that the punishment for police officers who have committed infractions includes a warning, reprimand, severe reprimand, reduction in rank, and outright dismissal.
The police officer said it is sad that crime fighters sometimes end up being entangled in negativity. But the PSC spokesperson pointed out that it is not right to conclude that DCP Kyari is guilty since he has not been prosecuted under Nigerian laws yet.
He stated that Kyari’s indictment by the US court needs to be subjected to the Nigerian laws first to verify if the police officer is guilty as alleged.
Austin noted that it will be unfortunate if the once celebrated police officer is found guilty of the indictment.
Meanwhile, Following his suspension by the Police Service Commission (PSC), the embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari is set to more trouble.
This is as the United States has requested for the pre-trial detention of the suspended head of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT).
According to papers filed at the United State District Court for the Central District of California, the US government is entitled to detention hearing if the defendant risks fleeing.
The court papers sighted by Daily Trust indicates that the documents signed by Acting US Attorney, Tracy Wilkinson and two other officials were filed on Thursday, April 29.
In the same vein, a popular human rights lawyer, Chief Femi Falana, SAN has called on the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and minister of justice, Abubakar Malami, to follow and process an extradition request from the United States concerning Abba Kyari.
As the head of the Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT),Kyari’s team burst and arrested many criminal gangs in the country which earned him a special commendation and legislative session from Nigeria’s House of Representatives..
Falana said the Special Investigative Panel set up by the Inspectior General of Police on the matter under review should do a thorough job.
Speaking during a phone interview with African Independent Television monitored by Premium Times newspaper, Falana stated that Abba Kyari is the product of a failed system.
“To put an end and close this ugly chapter, the investigation must go beyond the indictment by the FBI,the matter must be investigated locally, and Kyari shall not just be handed to America.

Train yourself to spiritual intelligence,don’t leave your life to chance. A negative atmosphere is real! I have walked in it, so I can tell, call it bad luck or misfortune.
Most people come from backgrounds where possibilities for success do not exist but through the operation of anointing somethings comes upon the lives of such people. A mantle or a mandate. This is how creation responds to us in different ways.
There are lives that will never rise until the right things are put in their rightful places.
When someone speaks negativity into you, don’t be ignorant about it. He or she is speaking from the strength of some kind of program. Find out what the manipulating reality is and the key to change it.
Wicked and Unreasonable people do not speak out of ignorance. Especially when someone is speaking to you from your village, don’t just say “it won’t happen” , Positive Confession is not enough. The Reality is attached to time. Sustenance of spiritual intelligence makes you superior to the other.
If that wonderful person says to you “Over my death body will you succeed” if you don’t know what to do that’s when you go panicking. Wicked people announce what they have finished even through their agents masquerading themselves as Prophets and seers in Man built temples. The saying “God forbid” does not count. Everything in your life has a representation in the realm of the spirit.
The spirits know the Laws that are working. In most environments that you walk into; in certain places, from opening prayer to the grace in fellowship you find instantaneous changes.
This is because they’re able to manipulate higher Laws of life to bring those changes. Even without your Prayers, Tithing, Offering, talking into being, you find certain things happening. It is based on the Covenant of that environment.
There are higher 👆 spiritual Laws contending against others. Most times you walked into such environments with pain in your body and left without such. In most cases on getting home the pain returns that is a sign that something needs to happen permanently in your life.
You have a responsibility to keep your breakthrough. No matter how born again you could be, the devil can still use you as rag if you lack a sound mind. Your level of enlightenment determines your Altitude.
2 Corinthians 4:18 says “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen”
Usually you say : I Want money in my bank account I need a Job I need a good home I need a Companion In this greedy world, who taught you its that easy? Why do we experience misfortunes in our lives? Why is it that things are not working well in our families? 🤔
If nothing is working, it is because nothing has not been done in the right direction.
It is the will of God for you to triumph in this half of the year and every opposing force must give way in Jesus name, Amen
They are people the moment money enters their pockets, another Law picks it. The pocket is like a hole..
If you are experiencing such, say this prayer: In the name of Jesus, I take responsibility for creating the realities of things in my life, circumstances will not determine the outcome of my life, I will harness them to my advantage in Jesus name. Amen
If You desire a change, don’t just sit down 👇 and say “one day he go better” . You need help 😣 ;Helpers don’t arise like that, they are called. Don’t leave your life to chance. Chains have to fall off your head. Declare to yourself : If i am not part of the programming, I can’t be a victim of the manifestation. Dont say “if God wants it”. Arise and take full responsibility of your life
I believe in vengeance. The Bible says in Isaiah 63:4 KJV For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
The keys to this mastery of Spiritual Intelligence include ; Prayer : James 5:16 The effective prayer of the righteousness is dynamic in it’s working especially if the prayer is initiated by the Spirit of God himself and not just at your usual time If you pray when there is an urge to pray the spirit of God searches the heart of God for you. Prayer is a mystery that can help you reprogram reality.
Sacrifice: Sacrifice can equally reprogram your life. In Psalms 50 :5. It took sacrifice to place your family in that state. It’s not necessarily a sacrifice of finance.
It could be a sacrifice of praise, dance, honor, seed🌱 Don’t steal from the house of God: Remember Gehazi who carried Leprosy.
Issac, when he wanted to release a blessing on Esau asked for Venison Appreciate little gift given to you by God”s servant if any, place a value on it. It is meant to reprogram your life.
Most time you have terrible experience because of who you met.as Men of God. Pay attention to how your environment treats you spiritually.
Be careful who Lays hands on you. I have seen Pastors, Prophets, Deacons and Deaconess lay hands on the people and took away their glory, most times they took away their grace leaving them in shame. Satan is a smart businessman, he does nothing for free.
Flee from every appearance of evil 😈. Your body is God’s temple, they are unethical practices you should avoid.
Identify a need in line with God’s word and meet in the house of God, in your environment and even societally. It should be done according to his leading and your ability. God sees your heart ♥
Prophecy: Prophecy can change situations when done properly One of the benefits of being in the house of God is to avail yourself of Prophecy to intercept the undesirable things in your life When you are in the right environment you triumph.
A little Prophetic guidance will break you out of some Levels 1 Samuel 9, 10 For deliverance to happen, There has to be a level grace upon that Man of God (Minister)
The grace to pray and reprogram your life is available, it is not automatic, you need to pray to bring down his glory. If you do nothing, you get nothing, anointing doesn’t just come to you. It is provoked. You can easily pray your way out of every curse, out of every limitation using the name of Jesus
If you earnestly desire this higher life, ThenPray/Declare: ■In the name of Jesus, 2× Every limitation placed over my life, placed over my destiny, l reprogram you now ●Oh God of heaven, the father of spirits remove every embargo manipulated by preisthood over my life, over my Career, over my marriage, over my business, on my ministry, over my Children. ●In the name of Jesus, every door, every gate in the realm of the spirit assigned to open for my good that has been closed, I prophesy upon you be opened now ●Door of the next Chapter of Breakthrough, I realign you ●In the name of Jesus, I speak to Spirits, I speak to covenants, I speak altars holding my life, holding my destiny, by the Covenant of the blood release my destiny now. ●In the name of Jesus, every physical reality reoccurring in my life that I do not like what ever programed you in the realm of the spirit, I cancel that programming now ●In the name of Jesus I declare that every element of the supernatural that has been hijacked by the power of darkness to work against me, I come against you with the wrath of a higher priesthood, I stop your operations now. ●In the name of Jesus, any spiritual and human agents who are in partnership to fight me, I release Judgment against you.
●In the name of Jesus, Oh earth hear the word of the Lord, oh wind hear the word of the Lord, I declare to all the elements of the supernatural; bring my breakthrough, bring my blessings, bring my favor, I speak to the earth, I provoke my Portion.
●In the name of Jesus, I speak to my helpers, every Law, stopping you from coming to my help, I release you now, manifest in my life
● In the name of Jesus, Covenants associated with my family, every altar associated with the pains of my family, as an Ambassador, I stand on behalf of my love ones and I cancell those ordinances. (Ordinances of death, badluck, poverty... Negative ordinances).
●In the name of Jesus, Father visit and break negative patterns, repeated negative patterns of my life .
●Every negative voice that speaks to my spirit making me believe it is the voice of God, be silenced
I challenged every Anti-Christ voice mascurading as the holy Ghost giving you instructions, misleading your spirit, activating wrong laws to act against you, I release Judgment upon it now.
I Command that blinding spirit to leave you now… In Jesus Name I prophesy upon your life, carry favor in Jesus name… Amen
The Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Dr Paul Enenche, has asked the Department of State Services (DSS) not to release the five #BuhariMustGo protesters arrested on the church premises until SaharaReporters delete two stories against him and his father-in-law, Professor John Ibu, a source has said.
The youths wearing #BuhariMustGo branded shirts were arrested on Sunday, July 4, 2021.
The church security team was said to have arrested the activists and handed them over to the DSS, Nigeria’s secret police.
Speaking to SaharaReporters, a top official of the DSS said the five #BuhariMustGo campaigners were still being detained because of two stories written by the newspaper against the cleric and his father-in-law.
He said, “Don’t be deceived, Dr. Enenche is actually lying about working to get them released. Backstage, he (Enenche) doesn’t want them released except SaharaReporters deletes the story written against his father in-law and another one written against the church last year, I think it was a story about a former pastor of the church accusing Eneche of sending him to prison on trumped-up charges.
“He told us it was Omoyele Sowore that sent the boys to his church and he (Sowore) should be punished by the prolonged detention of the guys.”
SaharaReporters on June 27, 2020 published that one Pastor Abraham Daniel, a former member of Dunamis International Gospel Centre revealed how Eneche falsely accused him and had him imprisoned on trumped-up charges.
Daniel claimed Eneche and other pastors were angry at him for leaving the church while also claiming that he (Daniel) publicly criticised the cleric in his Facebook posts that revealed the activities of the church.
He added that while he was in prison, he lost his business and his wife also left with their five children after being influenced by the church.
He said, “I was ordained as a pastor in 2010. In 2014, I was posted to New Karu as the residence pastor. While I was there, we started a school. I wanted a school that would be almost free for church members but an instruction came from the headquarters that I should not run the school freely, so I had to stop the whole plan.
“I wrote on my Facebook post telling churches in Nigeria to encourage members’ development and also help members. I also wrote that Christians now celebrate pastors instead of focusing on Jesus and the teachings of the Bible.
“I later lost interest in the church, wrote a letter of resignation, it was accepted and I left. The pastor (Eneche) called me and was insulting me because I left the church. He sent his pastors to start calling my wife to pester me to return to the church.
“This put my family in disarray as my wife pestered me until I closed the ministry and ensured I returned to Dunamis Church. I left again, then suddenly things went rogue. A number called me that he needed my Uber service and we met unknowingly to me that they were police.
“They took me to Karu Police Station, saying that they arrested me because of what I wrote against Pastor Eneche.”
He added that he was moved to another police station in Abuja and the church insisted that he must be taken to court.
He was eventually charged to court and remanded in prison pending his bail application.
Daniel also said the church made false allegations while testifying in court, which made the judge send him to prison before he was granted another bail.
The newspaper in 2021 also reported how the Chairman of Benue State University Teaching Hospital and the father of Enenche’s wife, Becky, Professor John Ibu, was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for alleged N24.6 million fraud.
Checks by SaharaReporters revealed that Becky was formerly known as Rebecca Inyangbe Ibu before marriage.
On June 28, the EFCC announced that its Makurdi Zonal Office arraigned her father alongside one Chief Abukenchi Suleiman and his company, ADB Motors Venters Nigeria Limited before Justice Abdu Dogo of the Federal High Court sitting in Makurdi, Benue State.
They were arraigned on charges of conspiracy and obtaining N24, 650,000 (Twenty-Four Million, Six Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira only) by false pretences.
The EFCC alleged that the duo obtained the said sum from the Benue State University Teaching Hospital under the guise of purchasing a Toyota Landcruiser Prado 2018 Model which was never bought.
The anti-corruption agency noted that the offence is contrary to Section 8(a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2006 and punishable under section 1(3) of the same Act.
Count one of the charge reads: “That you, Professor John Ibu, being the Board Chairman, Benue State University Teaching Hospital, you Chief Abukenchi Suleiman, being the Managing Director ADB Motors Ventures Nigeria Ltd and you, ADB Motors Ventures Nigeria Ltd sometime in July 2019 within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, with intent to defraud conspired amongst yourselves and obtained the sum of N24,650,000 (Twenty Four Million Six Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira only) from the Benue State University Teaching Hospital Board for the purchase of a Toyota Landcruiser Prado 2018 Model under false pretences that you have the capacity to supply which pretence you knew was false and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 8(a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2006 and punishable under section 1(3) of the same Act.”
Count two reads: “That you, Professor John Ibu, being the Board Chairman, Benue State University Teaching Hospital sometime in July 2019 within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, did use your position to confer an unfair advantage to yourself by collecting a bribe, to the tune of N10, 900,000 (Ten Million Nine Hundred Thousand Naira only), from one Chief Abukenchi Suleiman of ADB Motors Ventures Nig.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday, arraigned Naankang Dawan, his companies – Taen Nigeria Ltd and Lataen Engineering Ltd – alongside Moruf Tunji Olukanmi before Justice D. V Agishi of the Federal High Court, Jos, Plateau.
They face a 31-count charge bordering on conspiracy, money laundering and obtaining more than N908million by false pretence.
Naankang Dawan (first defendant), who inherited companies including a petrol station from his family, allegedly connived with some staff of First Bank, including Olukanmi (fourth defendant), to defraud costumers using a Point of Sale (POS) terminal allocated to him.
Dawan’s accomplices, all at large, include Doyin Adesanya, Samuel Temitope Falese, Ebenezer Oni Kehinde and Mariam Babatunde Olabisi.
The charge said between October 2017 to November 2017, they manipulated First Bank’s POS terminal issued to Taen Nigeria Limited and credited the company’s account no: 2025956973 domiciled with First Bank with the sum of N908,108,974.
EFCC told the court that the defendants committed an offense contrary to Section 30(1) of the Cybercrime (Prohibition, Prevention, Etc.) Act, 2015.
Dawan and others pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Benjamin Manji, prosecution counsel, asked for a trial date and that the suspects be remanded at the correctional Centre pending trial.
A. G. Yirvoms, defence counsel, informed the court of a pending application for the bail of his clients.
After listening to both parties, Justice Agishi adjourned the case until July 26, 2021 for consideration of bail application and October 6, 2021 for trial.\
