Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, on Sunday accused the political elites in Nigeria of travelling to India and Niger Republic to hire soothsayers and Pastors to pray for the death of Buhari.
In a post on her Facebook page, Onochie claimed that those hired, on seeing that their effort to eliminate Buhari spiritually failed, resorted to attacks on the President.
Onochie, who did not disclose the identities of the politicians and the pastors she claimed were hired, said there must be a reason why the politicians did not want to see Buhari in power.
The Presidential aide alleged that the same reason was why they rigged him out in his first three shots at the Presidency and now they wanted him dead after he got his victory at the 2015 presidential election with the support of the card readers introduced by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
She wrote, “There must be a reason why some members of the political elite in Nigeria do not want to see President Muhammadu Buhari in power. They rigged him out of elections in the past and now that Nigerians overpowered them with the support of the card reader, they want him dead.
“In 2015, when it was obvious the electorates had their eyes set on him, they scammed President Jonathan to postpone the election and to further empty the Nigerian treasury so they could ‘buy’ more electorates.
“But they knew Nigerians were not ready to be bought so they pocketed the campaign loot. Those who took part in the scamming of ex-President Jonathan, are being asked to cough up and the junkiest of them all, is cursing and swearing because he is being held accountable.
“Transition was a scam. Financial books were cooked. They tried to cover up their financial wickedness and recklessness against this nation. They hired some school dropouts, products of their 16 years of mis-governance across the nation, to try to disrupt the nation.
“And then they hired red, green, blue, and all shades of media outfits to unleash a coordinated attack on his government. Bravely, he soldiers on.
“They travelled as far as Niger Republic, India, etc. and in vain, they engaged the services of marabouts and soothsayers (mere men), to their own disappointments.
“Pastors and bishops (mere men), whose unholy services were engaged to pray for his death, resorted to attacking him once they have prayed and he did not die.”

In recent years, there has been a tremendous increase in the sale and use of smartphones. This is because of spreading of internet connectivity and emerging of new mobile OS. Today, there are two main mobile operating systems, Android and iOS. They both are so loved by their users because of the App markets and ecosystems. Users love the idea of adding new features in their phones just by downloading an app rather than buying a new device. There are so many categories of apps out of which some apps such as Whatsapp, Facebook and Instagram are the most popular in social apps. Instagram has evolved into a full social network from just a photo sharing platform ever since it was acquired by facebook. People love sharing on Instagram even more than facebook. It also offers direct messaging and now copying snap chat, it offers stories and disappearing messages as well.
Blocking On Instagram.
With such an evolution of Instagram into a full-blown social network, people are more concerned about privacy, security and copyrights on Instagram. To tackle with such difficulties, Instagram has added various security features such as making posts private, copyright claims on music, reporting spam and blocking users. The best part about blocking someone is the fact that the blocked user has no idea that they have been blocked unless they notice it themselves. This may be very annoying for the user getting blocked. Sometimes Instagram bans your accounts so it is important to keep track and check who blocked on Instagram in case number becomes too high. This is especially in the case of marketing accounts, or people who post spam comments on celebrity posts and more.
So, if you are in such a situation where you need to track the number of users or need to know who blocked you on Instagram, we have the solution you need.

Badagry (Lagos State) – A 21-year-old man, Abiodun Ayo, who allegedly stabbed his friend, Alaba Akinleye, in the eye over a bottle of beer, was on Tuesday charged before a Badagry Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos State.
Ayo, whose address is unknown, is facing a charge of assault.
The Prosecutor, Insp. Akpan Ikem, told the court that the accused committed the offence on Dec. 18, 2016 at Mapowu Street, Ojo, Lagos.
Ikem said a fight broke out between the accused and the complainant over the sharing of a bottle of beer.
“They were in a beer parlour when the duo started arguing over how to share a bottle of beer.
“The accused broke the bottle of beer and stabbed the victim on his left eye. He then fled the scene, but he was later arrested,” the prosecutor said.
He said the offence contravened Section 171 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
The accused pleaded not guilty to the offence.
The Chief Magistrate, Mr Jimoh Adefioye, granted the accused N100,000 bail, with two sureties who must provide evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State Government.
He adjourned the case until June 22 for mention.
The Inspector- General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, says the Nigeria Police have concluded arrangements to recruit 30,000 personnel annually.
Idris, represented by Mr Shuaibu Gambo Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG) in charge of Finance and Administration, made the disclosure on Tuesday in Ilorin while addressing officers and men of Kwara Police Command.
“The fight against crime and criminality will not be successful without adequate manpower.
“Recruitment of 30,000 personnel on a yearly basis will not only increase manpower, but also give room for efficiency in the force,“he said.
The I-G said plans were underway to establish more area commands across the country to create opportunities for promotion of qualified officers and men.
He said N200 million had been set aside for payment of the entitlement of police pensioners.
He added that the era when police officers retire for many years before being paid their entitlement was over.
He said that the leadership of the force would soon commence building of housing estates for its personnel across the country.
Idris said the houses would be allocated to officers and men at affordable prices at convenient installment.
He said the project would commence as soon as the Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) from some state governments was approved.
Idris restated the commitment of his administration to the welfare of officers and men of the force.
He warned them against violating the fundamental human rights of the citizens in the course of performing their duties.
Earlier, Kwara Police Commissioner, Mr Olusola Amore, who decried shortage of manpower in the command, appealed to the I-G to consider the command’s request for more men.
He said that the influx of people into the state had made it difficult for the number of personnel to effectively check the rising waves of crimes in the state.
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) said on Tuesday that the call by Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State for its personnel to restrict their activities to city suburbs and the highways had negative implications.
Mr Shehu Zaki, an Asst. Corps Marshal and Zonal Commanding Officer (Zone 2), of the corps in Lagos and Ogun States, made the remark in an interview with the Newsmen in Lagos.
“The implication is that even some members of the public who do not know how we operate have started telling some of our officers to leave the roads, in line with the governor’s call.
“There are certainly some negative implications to this statement, coming from a state governor and we are mindful of that.
“The governor himself has come out categorically to say that the FRSC should leave the roads.
“It did not come as a surprise because it was our own concept; we felt that such a policy will help us to serve the people better,’’ he said.
The FRSC boss noted that officials of the corps had the right to operate both on the highways and within the cities, in emergency situations.
Zaki said that emergencies could occur anywhere that would require the services of FRSC personnel, saying that its personnel would not leave the roads totally as it had the right to work in the metropolis, in particular circumstances.
The governor cannot force us out of the roads, but he can advise us, as he has already done.
“That policy of the Lagos state government is even going to help us more and allow us to effectively deliver on our mandate on the highways, even more than before.
“Safety is something that has always been at the heart of FRSC operations and we are doing effectively both within the cities and on the highways,’’ he said.
Ambode had recently asked the FRSC to limit its activities to only the suburbs of cities and the highways.
The governor made the call during the commissioning of Pedestrian Bridges, Laybys and Slip Roads at Ojodu-Berger on May 16.
He said the decision was to ensure free flow of traffic in the state, noting that the activities of the FRSC contributed to traffic congestion on inner city roads.
President of the 8 Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has expressed sadness over the death of the State House Correspondent of Channels Television, Mr. Chukwuma Onuekwusi.
Saraki, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, said the late Onuekwusi was a hardworking, passionate and conscientious journalist.
“The news of the demise of Chukwuma Onuekwusi came to me with great shock. He was a thoroughbred broadcast journalist whose reports always leave you wanting more,” Saraki said.
Late Channels Television’s State House Correspondent, Chukwuma Onuekwusi
“I believe his death has left a vacuum in the broadcast industry that cannot easily be filled. We can only thank God for his eventful life, contributions to national development and service to humanity. He shall be sorely missed,” he said.
Dr. Saraki also commiserated with the immediate family of the late veteran journalist as well as with the management and staff of Channels Television and the State House Correspondents over the death of Late Onuekwusi.
Late Chukwuma Onuekwusi died in the early hours of Tuesday at a private hospital in Abuja. He died at the age of 55 and is survived by wife and children.
Chukwuma Onuekwusi, graduate of the University of Nigeria Nsukka joined Channels TV in 1998 and has covered several beats before he was seconded to the Presidential Villa. The veteran journalist also worked at Imo Broadcasting Corporation, Owerri.
The Senate has called on the judiciary to re-visit the law on all sexual offences, especially rape and domestic violence, to address the seriousness they bear.
It also urged Police authorities to investigate and prosecute cases of sexual abuse, violation and violence in line with the provisions of extant laws of the Federation.
This followed a motion by the Deputy Leader of the Senate, Sen. Bala Ibn Na’Allah, entitled “Urgent Need to Investigate Alarming Rate of Rape and Sexual Assault against Women, Children and Vulnerable People across the Country’’.
Presenting the motion, the lawmaker said that the frightening increase in sexual violence cases, particularly rape where more than half of the victims were minors and children below the age of consent.
He said that in most of the cases, the perpetrators were usually familiar neighbours, employers of labour and close family members.
“The activities of these sexual predators constitute a serious security threat to the larger segment of our society and are severely under-reported.
“The perversion is spreading across the country, with both the male and female gender as victims, especially in view of the poor prosecution and conviction numbers being turned out.
“It was stated that 1,480 cases of domestic violence, ranging from rape, child abuse, sexual abuse, assaults, defilement, to matrimonial issues were recorded in two years,’’ he said.
Na’Allah recalled a Human Rights Watch publication which alleged that government officials raped and sexually abused women and girls who survived Boko Haram violence, a case yet to be legally concluded.
He said that it was time the disturbing trend was curbed, and stressed that it portrayed the country in a bad light.
He called for full implementation of the Violence against Persons Prohibition Act and the Sexual Offences in Tertiary Institutions Prohibition Bill 2016 to combat the crime.
In his contribution, the Deputy Minority Whip, Sen. Biodun Olujimi, expressed concern at the rise in sexual offences across the country.
She said that it was high time law enforcement agencies and other relevant stakeholders took the issue of rape, other sexual offences and domestic violence seriously to serve as deterrent.
“Yesterday, a one-year-old child was snatched from the back of the mother by six men and raped to death.
“Rape is bad and disgusting and there is a mental issue attached to rapists. The issue of paedophiles is also on the increase.
“Unfortunately, those that are supposed to curb the crime are guilty because they turn their eyes away from this heinous crime.
“Our law enforcement agencies must enforce laws on rape and other related laws and the time has come to ensure our laws are strengthened.
“In fact, there is nothing wrong in saying that people who rape should be shot because it has come to that. Girls are no longer safe even at homes and dormitories,’’ Olujimi said.
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Power, Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe, while supporting the motion said it was expedient for the National Assembly, particularly the Senate, to wade into the matter in view of its seriousness.
He also urged law enforcement agencies to diligently carry out their duties in order to build the confidence reposed in them.
Abaribe decried the situation where victims who were meant to get justice were subjected to more torture by law enforcement agencies, saying that it was unacceptable.
He added that rape victims were often scared to report such cases because they didn’t know what to expect, adding that all hands must be deck to tackle the menace.
The Chairman, Committee on Poverty Alleviation, Sen. Ali Wakili, said it was pathetic that some Nigerians had lost their senses of humanity.
He called for the strengthening of extant laws to check the crime, which affected mostly women and children.
“We as people have lost our sense of humanity and we have allowed our animalistic tendency to take a better part of us.
“We now live in a society where morals are no longer taught. Yesterday I saw on social media where someone was caught raping in a mosque. This shows the level of degeneration in our society.
“ We need to go back to history and regenerate our moral values and our religious leaders have a duty in that respect,’’ he said.
Equally, Sen. Joshua Lidani (PDP-Gombe) said that the rise in the number of paedophiles in the country called for concern.
“The issue of sexual offence is not restricted to any part of the country. It is everywhere and it gives course for concern.
“Today the rape of children is on the increase and one of the problems of prosecuting rape is proving evidence of penetration.
“ I think we need to strengthen our laws and our religious leaders should equally play a part in finding lasting solution to this problem,’’ he said.
The lawmaker called for whistle-blowing on rape.
In his remarks, the Deputy President of the Senate, Mr Ike Ekweremadu, who presided at plenary, commended the deputy leader of the senate for coming up with the motion.
He expressed optimism that with increase in reported cases of rape and other sexual offences in the country, there would be more prosecutions.
“I felt a sense of relief when Sen. Ben Bruce said that five ladies admitted to him that they were raped.
“Before now people were dying in silence but today people are reporting cases of rape and other sexual offences.
“ We call on our ladies to report any form of molestation to appropriate agencies. It is because reports were not made in the past it continued to date,’’ Ekweremadu said.
He commended the judiciary, particularly the courts for prosecuting more sexual offences cases in recent times.
He called on all to work towards curbing rape, adding that “the callousness of rape these days does not even give doubt on penetration because of the level of harm suffered by victims.
“ We need to re-define what constitutes the offence of rape and we also need to amend our laws to define what penetration is because it could be anal.’’
ZGov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State says emphasis on paper qualification, without considering adequate skills to deliver, contributes to the high level of unemployment in the country.
Ambode, who was represented by his Deputy, Dr Idiat Adebule, said this on Tuesday at the Grand Finale of the Science, Arts and Craft Exhibition and Talent Hunt by Junior and Senior Secondary Schools in the state to celebrate Lagos at 50.
He said that invention, entrepreneurship and the development of innate natural talents were the ways of achieving self-sustenance, job creation and turning around the nation’s economy from its present state.
”I am more convinced that the era of white collar jobs is gone forever. We must as a matter of urgency emphasise on home grown innovation and creativity instead of adopting anything foreign.
”I believe strongly that only we can find solutions to our peculiar collective challenges. It is time we joined industrial nations such as Japan, China and Singapore; and shed the toga of a consumer nation.
”We are having this exhibition as part of activities to celebrate Lagos at 50 to open minds to the immense economic opportunities in science, arts and crafts.
”This will motivate young minds like our students who are the leaders of tomorrow to develop and inject their creativity to develop the social and economic status of the state in the next decade, ” he said.
Ambode said that the state government would collaborate with the Bank of Industry to develop the best projects from the exhibition and mass produce them for the larger market.
He urged young Nigerians to write their names in the sands of time by inventing something to improve the lives of mankind.
In his remarks, Mr Adeyemi Odesina, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, said the exhibition and talent hunt was aimed at redirecting young peoples’ exploitative thoughts to help discover and harness their innate talents.
”The huge investment and commitment of the government to quality education, especially the provision of craft and science equipment in schools, is yielding positive results.
”I commend the students whose exhibitions made it to the grand finale from the different districts. We hope that the inventions by our students will be developed to solve the problems affecting humanity, ” he said.
The six education districts in the state held their Science, Arts and Craft Exhibition preliminaries on April 10 and 12.
Primary schools under the State Universal Basic Education Board, District I in Agege emerged winner in the talent hunt show, State Junior School, District IV in Surulere came first in the arts and crafts exhibition, while Technical College of Lagos in District VI, Oshodi emerged winner in the science exhibition.
The leadership of the University of Jos has moved to curb the spate of s*xual immorality among ladies with a check on their mode of dressing.
Authorities of the University of Jos on Wednesday directed its security agencies to arrest any student whose dressing assaults the sensibilities of the members of the university community.
The institution also warned that improperly dressed students would be barred from entering offices and attending lecturers.
The Vice-Chancellor of UNIJOS, Prof Sebastian Maimako, gave the directive in Jos on Wednesday during the matriculation ceremony for 7,000 students for the 2016/2017 academic session.
According to him, 31,759 candidates chose UNIJOS as their first choice with 25,785 for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and 5,974 for Direct Entry in the 2016/2017 session.
The VC said that although the social media had remained the vogue of the present society, it should not be used for negative reasons.
He said, “In line with the extant rules of the university, no student is permitted to publish anything concerning the university without the written permission of the vice-chancellor through the registrar.”
Nigerians are currently being deported from other countries in droves due to a range of several immigration offences.
No fewer than 1,134 Nigerians have been deported from various countries for various immigration offences in three months, according to a statistics released by the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons and other related offences.
The statistics covered February to April, 2017. The agency said the offences included human trafficking, smuggling of migrants and non-possession of valid travel documents.
A correspondent learnt that from the 1,134 deportees, 905 were deported from Libya in five batches, while 115 came from Italy in four batches. From Mali, 41 persons were brought into Nigeria while 26 came from Burkina Faso.
Ghana deported 14 Nigerians; the United Arab Emirates, 22; one from Cameroon; eight from Ivory Coast and two from Togo.
The Director-General of NAPTIP, Julie Okah-Donli, who released these figures during a management meeting of the agency, stated that the statistics was alarming and embarrassing.
She added that more Nigerian victims of human trafficking were stranded across African countries, awaiting assistance.
