Insecurity, Funding Threaten 2015 Elections, Says Jega
AJETUNMOBI SHERIF

Jega
The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega, has listed challenges facing the commission ahead of the 2015 general elections.

Jega, who listed the challenges in an interactive forum with the media in Abuja on Wednesday, also said that the recent governorship election in Ekiti State was not militarised.

Listing the challenges ahead of 2015 elections, he said that they included, “Insecurity, funding, attitudes of political class, apathetic and inactive citizenry, delay in amendment to the legal framework, completion of the review of electoral constituencies and polling units and prosecution of election offenders.”

He, however, said that the commission had carried out some reforms, which had led to the success of the Ekiti governorship election.

“These challenges are not insurmountable and we will spare no effort to ensure that aspirations of Nigerians for free, fair, credible and peaceful elections are actualised in 2015,” Jega said.

He stated that INEC carried out the reforms after it reviewed the 2011 elections.

According to him, the review of 2011 elections shows that credible polls require adequate preparations, openness and partnership of all stakeholders.

Jega said some of the reforms carried out by the commission were implemented during the Ekiti State governorship election.

He said that part of the reforms was biometric voter registration, which had enhanced the integrity of voter register.

The chairman stated, “We have rolled out in three phases, a programme of continuous voter registration nationwide. The CVR offers fresh opportunity to get more citizens into the electronic register ahead of the 2015 general elections.

“Unlike the November 2013 Anambra State governorship election, our experience in the more recent Ekiti State election showed that we are making progress in enhancing the integrity of the register of voters.”
He disclosed that the commission had started issuing permanent voter cards to all duly registered voters.

Jega said that the PVCs, which were used during the Ekiti State governorship election, would be “swiped with card readers in 2015 elections to ensure 100 per cent verification and authentication of voters.”

The chairman added that the commission had ensured training and retraining of its staff as part of preparations for 2015 elections.

Another reform, Jega said, was the improved feature of sensitive electoral materials,

These, he said, included serial numbering and colour-coding of ballot papers and result sheets as well as security coding of ballot boxes.

The chairman added that electoral procedures, including pasting of result at polling units and collation centre, were more open during the Ekiti poll.
Defending the deployment of security agents during the poll, he said, “There is no way the Ekiti State governorship election can be defined as being militarised.”

When asked if he would want a similar situation in Osun State, he said, “I want security agencies to do everything possible to secure the electoral process. I want them in particular to protect our personnel and materials.”

He added that security agencies should ensure that there was peace so that people would come out and vote.

Jega also faulted a report that INEC would not conduct 2015 elections in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states because of the state of emergency the Federal Government had declared in the states.

Aregbesola Using Rented Crowds For Rallies – PDP
AJETUNMOBI SHERIF

Aregbesola
The Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has said Governor Rauf Aregbesola has been renting crowds from all parts of the state and other states under the control of the All Progressives Congress to attend his rallies.

The Publicity Secretary of Osun PDP, Mr. Bola Ajao, told our correspondent that mammoth crowds had also attended the rallies of the party’s candidate, Senator Iyiola Omisore, in different parts of the state. Ajao spoke in reaction to claims by the APC that the crowds that attended Aregbesola’s campaigns in Ejigbo, Ilesa, and other parts of the state were signs that the governor would be re-elected.

He said the APC was being myopic to think the large turnout of crowds translated to electoral victory and added that the PDP candidate would win the August 9 governorship election despite Aregbesola’s rallies with 'rented’ crowds.

The Osun PDP spokesperson also stated that Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi; Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole; and Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, had also contributed crowds to Aregbesola’s rallies.

Nigeria's youngest pilot
According to the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, Daniel Adeyileka (pictured above) is the youngest pilot in Nigeria.

He was born in 1995 in Newcastle, England and had his primary and secondary education in Scotland then came back to Nigeria to do his A-levels. At 17, he proceeded to Delta Flight school in Texas, USA, where he obtained his Private Pilot License (PPL) and his International General Certificate of Secondary Education. He is currently a First Officer.

Daniel Adeyelika
Kindly do a little bit of introduction?
My name is Daniel Adeyelika; I was born on the 6th of February 1995 in Newcastle, England. I have spent most of my life in the United Kingdom, Indonesia, Nairn, Scotland and other countries abroad. I had my elementary education in Rose Bank Primary School, Nairn, Scotland, from there I moved to Grantown Grammar School also in Scotland where I completed my secondary school. In 2008, I came back to Nigeria and enrolled into Avicenna International School, Ikeja, GRA. I finished in 2009. I equally obtained my A-Levels in Greenville School, GRA. It was right after my A-Levels that I went straight to flying school in America

Where did you train?
I did my flight training in Texas, Dallas with Delta Flight School for nine (9) months. I knew I went there for a reason and not to play, I needed all the concentration, I go to school from Monday to Sunday. My Private Pilot License (PPL) was for one and a half month and my International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) was for three years.

During your training, were you teased for being the youngest in your class?
I was never teased but I was the youngest in my class and got along with everybody but there was a time I could not write certain exams due to my age, there were restrictions. I was asked to wait until I turned 18 years before I can do my commercial, so I was just reading all through those periods.

What were your challenges during training?
The challenge basically was when I was sent to Amsterdam for my Type Rating, it was really the toughest period I cant lie to you because it was not an easy task. I actually thought I was going to fail because I was the weakest in the class at the beginning but I came top of the class at the end. I kept telling my self “I can do it.” God really saw me through. The exercise lasted for one month. The challenge basically was when I was sent to Amsterdam for my Type Rating, it was really the toughest period I cant lie to you because it was not an easy task.

Algerian Airline Carrying 110 Passengers "Missing"
AJETUNMOBI SHERIF

Airbus A320
Algeria's national airline says it has lost contact with a plane carrying 110 passengers and six crew members after it disappeared off the radar on a flight from Burkina Faso to Algiers.

Air navigation services lost track of the Airbus A320 around 50 minutes after take-off early today.
It was last sited at 1.55am GMT, the official Algerian news agency said.

The flight should have landed in the Algerian capital at 5am GMT.

'In keeping with procedures, Air Algerie has launched its emergency plan,' the agency quoted the airline as saying.

The flight path of Flight AH5017 from Ouagadougou, the capital of the west African nation of Burkina Faso, to Algiers was not immediately clear.

Ougadougou is in a nearly straight line south of Algiers, passing over Mali where unrest continues in the north.

A source from Air Algerie told the AFP news agency said contact was lost while it was still in Malian air space approaching the border with Algeria.

The source said: 'The plane was not far from the Algerian frontier when the crew was asked to make a detour because of poor visibility and to prevent the risk of collision with another aircraft on the Algiers-Bamako route.

"Contact was lost after the change of course."

The airline announced that the plane had gone missing in a brief statement carried by national news agency APS.

It added that the company initiated an 'emergency plan' in the search for flight AH5017, which flies the four-hour passenger route four times a week.

30 year old man arrested for R*aping 2 year old girl in Ebonyi state
A 30-year old man, Mr. Inya-Okoro from Afikpo North LGA of Ebonyi State has been arrested by police for defiling a 2-year-old girl named Favour, Sunnewsonline reports

The suspect was alleged to have com­mitted the shameful act when the victim returned from school and was sleeping at the corridor of the house when the suspect, who also lives in the same compound allegedly pounced on her and committed the crime.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Mr. Chris Anyanwu an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), who \confirmed the incident said the suspect was arrested on July 14, 2014 at the scene of the crime when the members of the family alerted the police. Continue...

He said that the girl had been taken to hospital for medical examination and treat­ment while the suspect would be charged to court for prosecution, lamenting high rate of rape and defilement in the state.

According to Anyanwu,
“On Monday 14th July, 2014, one Ama Inya-Okoro, 30-year old man from Ubeyi development centre in Unwana, in Afikpo Council area, was arrested for defiling little girl, Favour. The girl has been taken to hospital for treatment by his father Mr. Ude, Ebeke. The suspect confessed to the crime and will be charged to court for prosecution.

“This is another disturbing trend, the issue of ra*pe, defilement and se*x related offences.

I don’t know why we have regular oc­currence in the state. The people should not leave their children especially, female ones without close watch. Just like in this case, the girl was sleeping but nobody was there with her when the suspect took the advan­tage and had access to the girl. So, parents should be careful and monitor their girls and ensure that they don’t send them on errand alone to avoid such cases of rape. I urge the people to always ensure that they raise alarm whenever they see such act and report it to the nearest police station” he said.

In an interview with Crime Watch, Ama Inya-Okoro admitted to have committed the crime but blamed it on evil urge for se*x.

According to him,
“What happened was that I went to look for job as laborer on the fateful day but could not get any job and I returned home. As I was washing my cloth I saw the girl laying down sleeping wearing only pant, I rushed and carried her and have se*x with her. It was ‘conji’ that caused it and I don’t have money to go for mature girls.”

The father of the girl Mr. Ude Ebeke that he was at the church when the incident happened. A neighour called to inform me home and I rushed home to found my two years old girl was defiled by a nieghour, Ama Okoro.

“On Monday July14, 2014, I was in the church when a woman came and called me and told me to go home, I quickly rushed to my house, I didn’t see anybody, I ran to our village square and  saw group of people there gathered. It was there I saw my daugh­ter and one of the leaders of age grade who first arrested the man and brought him to the village square.

“It was there that I was told that one Ama Inya Okoro ra*ped and defiled by two year-old girl. So, I wanted to call police but they told me that they had already contacted police and as I was there police came and took all of us including the suspect to the police station where I made a statement. The mother traveled that day and the girl went to school before I left home. My sister will tell more on what happened because I was in the church,” he said.

The person who was with the girl when the incident happened, Miss Stella Egwu said that she was cooking in the kitchen while the victim was sleeping at the corridor when a woman alerted her.

“I was in my place cooking when the little girl came back from school and after some time she went and slept at the corridor. As I was cooking in the kitchen I heard voice calling us to come and see the man that was ra*ping the little girl, I came out and saw the man standing with the girl, sperm in her private. As we were talking people gathered and took the suspect to the village square where they called police” she explained.

PayPal signs "ten of thousands" customers in Nigerian launch
AJETUNMOBI SHERIF

(Reuters) - PayPal has signed up "tens of thousand" of Nigerians in its first week of operating in Africa's biggest economy, with consumers already purchasing items from Britain, China and the United States via its online platform, a company official said.

E-commerce remains in its infancy in most of Africa but is growing exponentially with the advent of online retailers such as Jumia, partly owned by South African phone operator MTN, and a growing middle class with money to spend.

Citizens of Africa's most populous nation could not buy goods directly from foreign merchants before the launch by PayPal, the payments unit of online auctioneer eBay Inc.

"We have seen great uptake by Nigerians ... in terms of coverage," Malvina Goldfeld, PayPal's head of business development for sub-Saharan Africa, said in Lagos on Tuesday.

PayPal entered Nigeria and 10 other nations last month, providing online payment alternatives for consumers via mobile phones or PCs in markets often blighted by financial fraud. The new markets bring the number of countries PayPal serves to 203.

Goldfeld said that Paypal secured a few deals with electronics suppliers in China and Dubai ahead of its launch and that it had partnered with Nigerian lender First Bank, which has more than 10.5 million customers.

ELECTRONICS AND FASHION

PayPal launched its platform in South Africa four years ago, Kenya last year and now Nigeria, Goldfeld said, giving the company access to shoppers across 40 sub-saharan African countries.

Goldfeld said the biggest interest has been in products from the United States, Britain and China, adding: "People are buying everything ... (but) there's definitely a concentration in electronics and fashion."

Online retailer Jumia told Reuters in April it had 100,000 Nigerian customer accounts and sales were increasing by 15 percent a month

However, worries over internet security and online fraud have held back e-commerce growth in Nigeria, where 63 million people have active internet data subscriptions but only 1 percent of them make online transactions, First Bank said, noting that online purchases are expected to reach $1 billion this year.

Though challenges remain - including abysmal infrastructure, port delays, other supply chain woes and the task of persuading shoppers to trust websites with their bank details - Goldfeld says PayPal's reach will help to speed improvements.

"A lot of the merchants that we work with ... already ship to Nigeria. I think that the growth of e-commerce will push the logistics customers to up their game," she said.

Russia may ask rich citizens to help foot bill for Crimea with “solidarity tax”
AJETUNMOBI SHERIF

Vladimir Putin
Russia could ask its richest citizens to help foot the bill for the annexation of Crimea by paying a “solidarity tax” proposed by a group of lawmakers.

Deputies from the State Duma lower house of parliament, which is dominated by backers of President Vladimir Putin, have drawn up a draft law that would increase income tax for people earning more than more than 1 million roubles ($28,700) a month.

It would affect less than 2 percent of the working population but the amounts could be huge for some individuals because the daft proposes they pay up to 30 percent of their earnings compared to the current flat rate of 13 percent.

“The main goal is to support regional budgets and that means also the budget of Russia’s new territories,” Andrei Krutov, the deputy leading the planned legislation, told Reuters.

His reference to the “new territories” made clear that a key intention was to help the government pay for Crimea’s absorption into Russia.

The Black Sea peninsula was annexed in March, an action seen by most Russians as righting what they considered a historical wrong by late Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev who gifted Crimea to Ukraine in 1954, long before the Soviet Union collapsed.

The need to help support Crimea’s economy and its 2.3 million population has put a new strain on Russia’s federal budget at a time when the country is sliding towards recession.

Some state employees say they have already been asked to donate a day’s pay to help Crimea – a demand some have balked at.

The Finance Ministry has also suggested personal income tax may have to be increased by 1-2 percent to help cover the costs and the government had already heard calls for Russia to introduce a progressive taxation mechanism.

Krutov said the draft law could be a step in that direction and played down the impact on society.

“The social burden would be minimal and the influx of cash to the budget would be significant,” Krutov said. “The economic reality and international experience increasingly show that progressive taxation is a step that Russia needs to make in the near future.”

He said the draft could go to a vote in the autumn and, if approved, could bring in 300 billion to 500 billion roubles ($8.6 billion to $14.30 billion) a year.

The small group of Russia’s rich accounts for more than a third of total personal income in the country, according to data from Federal Tax Service.

Criticism of the proposal has so far been muted – critics would risk sounding unpatriotic and uncharitable as the annexation of Crimea is widely supported and has boosted Putin’s ratings.

But an instant online poll by Snob magazine, which is aimed at the wealthy, showed 66 percent of respondents did not support the idea of a solidarity tax.

The shocking punishment  carried out in public  in the city of Kermanshah after he received 70 lashes alongside five other Muslim men for not fasting during Ramadan.The punishment was confirmed by the city's deputy governor Ali Ashraf Karami.The National Council of Resistance of Iran, denounced the treatment as 'savage' and called on western countries to take action.'

"The silence of the world community, especially of western countries, vis-à-vis these medieval punishments under the excuse of having nuclear talks with Iran has intensified the brutal and systematic violation of human rights in Iran."

Nigeria Seen by McKinsey Among World’s Top 20 Economies by 2030
AJETUNMOBI SHERIF

Lagos
Nigeria has the potential to be one of the world’s top 20 economies by 2030 with a consumer base exceeding the current populations of France and Germany, according to McKinsey & Co.

Africa’s biggest economy may expand about 7.1 percent a year through 2030, boosting gross domestic product to $1.6 trillion, possibly pushing it above Netherlands, Thailand and Malaysia, the New York-based company said in a report today. About 60 percent of Nigeria’s estimated population of 273 million by then may live in households earning more than $7,500 a year, fueling a consumer boom, McKinsey said.

“Nigeria is poised to become a major economic force,” McKinsey said in the report. “Nigeria has a huge endowment of resources, a growing consuming class, and rapidly growing trade and consumer sectors to propel growth.”

As Africa’s largest oil producer with a population of about 170 million, Nigeria has consistently posted growth rates in excess of 4 percent over the past decade. That’s spurred foreign investors such as Unilever Plc (ULVR), Nestle SA (NESN) and Shoprite Holdings Ltd. (SHP) to expand operations despite an upsurge in violence by militants in the north.

Based on McKinsey’s growth estimates for the economy, annual sales in consumer goods could more than triple to $1.4 trillion by 2030 from $388 billion currently, it said.

While oil accounts for 70 percent of government revenue and most of Nigeria’s export earnings, its share of the economy has waned. After the statistics office overhauled its GDP data in April, oil’s contribution to economic growth between 2010 and 2013 was 5.1 percent, compared with 14 percent for manufacturing and 20 percent for trade, according to McKinsey.

Reducing Poverty

“If Nigeria reaches its economic potential, the retail and wholesale trade industry could grow 7.1 percent per year,” according to the report. “By 2030, it would likely become the largest contributor to Nigerian GDP, surpassing the agriculture sector.”

In order to achieve its potential, Nigeria’s government needs to address poverty, lower the cost of basic services, such as housing and energy, expand electricity supply and boost productivity in farming, McKinsey said.

The most recent poverty survey by Nigeria’s statistics agency, published in 2012, showed that 61 percent of Nigerians were living on less than a dollar a day in 2010, up from 52 percent in 2004. Life expectancy is 54 years, eight years lower than in Ghana and 20 years below Brazil, according to McKinsey.

APC petitions President Jonathan, alleges plot to kill Governor Aregbesola
AJETUNMOBI SHERIF

Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola | credits: File copy
The All Progressives Congress has petitioned President Goodluck Jonathan over an alleged plot to assassinate Governor Rauf Aregbesola.

Also, the party alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party was planning to arrest its notable leaders ahead of the August 9 governorship election.

The Chairman of the APC in Osun State, Mr. Adelowo Adebiyi, said this in Osogbo on Wednesday at a press conference.

The news conference also had in attendance the state secretary of the APC, Mr. Adegboyega Famodun; Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Mr. Kunle Oyatomi; and a leader of the party, Alhaji Fatai Oyedele.

Adebiyi, who read the allegations to journalists, said the letter was written to Jonathan in order to officially inform him of the situation.

The party alleged that the PDP was working to fraudulently hijack power in the state by using fake soldiers and collaborate with the Independent National Electoral Commission to capture the state through dubious means.

According to the APC chairman, the refusal of INEC to use electronic card readers for the Osun governorship poll was a plan to allow the PDP to manipulate the process of the election.

The letter read in part, “The President should order his party (PDP) to halt any plan to violently rig the August 9 governorship election through the undemocratic process of militarising the state and terrorising its citizens with thugs dressed in military camouflage shortly before, during and after the election.

“It perhaps may interest Mr. President that top on the PDP hit list of party elders for assassination is Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, the incumbent governor of Osun.”

But the Publicity Secretary of the PDP in the state, Mr. Bola Ajao, described the allegations as unfounded.

Ajao said that the APC was already preparing an alibi for its impending defeat at the poll.

He said, “This allegation is too pedestrian, it is fake and it is obvious that they are fabrications which they intend to put forward to justify their impending disgrace.

“This is another ploy in their sinking ship diplomacy. The Presidency of Nigeria for Jonathan and the governorship of Osun State for (Senator Iyiola) Omisore is not worth the blood of any Nigerian.”

Enugu Deputy Gov. to be served impeachment notice for rearing chickens in Govt house
AJETUNMOBI SHERIF

Sunday Onyebuchi
 22 out of the 24 members of the Enugu State House of Assembly on July 22nd passed a resolution to serve the state deputy Governor, Sunday Onyebuchi, an impeachment notice over allegations of operating a commercial poultry farm within his official quarters in the state capital.

According to the lawmakers, the state deputy governor's action contravenes their Feb 12 2013 resolution which 'prohibited the maintenance and operation of a commercial livestock and poultry farms within residential neighborhoods in Enugu Metropolis in promotion of public health standards'.

They say an earlier directive by the state Governor, Chime Sullivan, to have the said poultry relocated by relevant ministry officials was disobeyed by the deputy governor who afterwards resorted to inviting pressmen to castigate the Governor.

The impeachment notice reads in part;

“Consequent upon the intimidation of the relevant officials of the government by the Deputy Governor in respect of the matter aforesaid, the governor of Enugu State (herein after referred to as “ the Governor via letters with reference numbers : GHE/CAO/31/239 and GHE/CAO/31/240 dated 24/12/2013 and 27/12/2013 respectively, directed the Deputy Governor to relocate the commercial poultry farm out of the premises of his official residential quarters , which is also within the general premises of the Government House Enugu and adjacent to the Governor’s office.

“The Deputy Governor further defied the directive herein and in a most discourteous manner and in utter disregard of the office of the governor, responded via a letter dated 8/1/2014, insisting that he would not relocate his commercial poultry farm from the premises of his official residential quarters.

poultry
“When the government through the appropriate Ministries and departments relocated the birds and cleared the premises of the noxious stench emanating therefrom, the Deputy Governor wrongfully deployed the resources and powers of his office as deputy governor to invite the press and openly castigated the government and her officials, thereby impugning and denigrating the authority and office of the governor and embarrassing the government.” it read.

The Deputy Governor is also being accused of constantly disrespecting the state Governor which obstructs the peaceful administration of the state.

Odusanya Oduguwa Crescent, Green Estate, Amuwo Odofin Area of Lagos State
A businesswoman, identified as Lizzy, has been found dead at her apartment on the Odusanya Oduguwa Crescent, Green Estate, Amuwo Odofin Area of Lagos State.The incident happened on Saturday morning.

Sources told Punch that the 39-year-old indigene of Anambra State was murdered in cold blood by her boyfriend who also carted away her money, ATM cards, jewellery and a Range Rover Sport.

Our correspondent learnt from a police source that Lizzy, an executive in a networking firm, was planning to travel to the United States on Thursday (today) when she was strangled by the suspect.

The source said, 
“She was into networking and owned houses in different parts of Lagos. She was an international businesswoman and travelled round the world.She had said she would be travelling to the US this week and had gone to the bank with her boyfriend to withdraw N4m.When they both got to her house, the man tied her hands and strangled her. He took the money and went away in the car.”

When our correspondent visited the victim’s residence on Tuesday, he saw that the house was locked up.

A security man, who did not identify himself, said the house was shut by the police.

“The police have been here and they locked up the house,” he said.It was learnt from a reliable source that the deceased had four children from a previous marriage which had broken down.

He said, 
“She was initially married and even had four children. We learnt that her husband impregnated their maid and she said she could not live with the shame. She separated from the man.Since then, she had had several boyfriends who promised her marriage but only duped her. She even had one of them arrested. The case is still with the police.This last one that killed her, they had been dating for three months. The woman fell into this because she always opened up to those close to her.”

Our correspondent learnt from a police source that the suspect, after the crime, fled to a neighbouring country.

He said,
 “The boy is on the run. He ran to Ghana with the woman’s Range Rover Sport and money. But he has no hiding place under the law. He will be arrested. You can’t kill a human being without expecting retribution.”

The Police Public Relations officer, Lagos State Command, Ngozi Braide, confirmed the incident.She said the police had begun investigations.

She said,
 “Yes, the incident happened. She was murdered in her house on Saturday morning and investigations have begun to unravel the cause of her death.”

 Weeks after a British girl was filmed performing a s*ex act on 24 men in a night club in Magaluf, a major holiday resort on Majorca, Spain, another British couple have been filmed being really naughty.

A shocking new video filmed on a street in Magaluf has emerged showing ‘British tourists’ having s*ex in broad daylight between two parked cars.

They were captured on film for two minutes by someone recording them through a window.

The shocking footage, which was shared on Youtube (its since been removed), shows the couple, suspected to be in their 30s, unfazed as cars passed them. And when they finished, the man kneels on the ground as the woman slowly gets to her feet and re-arranges her mini-skirt before he passes her a tissue.

Chijioke Ezebuiro
A 27-year-old undergraduate of Madonna University, Okija, Anambra State, Chijioke Ezebuiro, was paraded on July 22nd by the Abia State Police Command for allegedly killing his 87-year-old father, Dr. Emmanuel Ezebuiro. This sad event comes barely three weeks after 21 year old Tolani Ajayi killed his 60 year old father inside the Redeemed Christian Church of God campground.

While parading Chijioke before newsmen, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Geoffrey Ogbonna said Chijioke is the chief suspect in his father's death because he was the only one around when the deceased was brutally murdered on June 30th at his home in Umuoriehi, Isingwu in Umuahia North LGA of Abia state.

According to his elder brother's statement to the police, Chijioke had often threatened to kill their father.
The elder brother said he left their father and Chijioke at home to drop off his children at school only to return to find their father in the pool of his own blood. He immediately called the police after Chijioke could not explain what happened to their father.

Police preliminary reports shows that there was no evidence of someone else gaining access into the home when the octogenarian was murdered.

During his interrogation, Chijioke claimed he was having his bath when his father was murdered.
"After taking my bath as I was going towards my room I saw people screaming in my father’s room, so I decided to go inside to know what was happening there. When I went there I saw my brother and my cousin in my father’s room and I saw my dad on top of his bed. I was shocked to see blood on his head.
I was so scared I had to go down stairs to call one of my cousins. When I came back with him we were asking them what happened none of them told us anything. He told us to go down stairs the next thing was for me to see police coming to arrest me, took me to the police station, saying I am a murderer, that’s all.” he said.

He denied ever threatening his life, maintaining they had a good relationship.

 A couple have been arrested after they were filmed having se*x on a crowded beach in Florida in front of children, including a 4 year old girl.

Elissa Alvarez, 20 , straddled Jose Caballero, 39, on a blanket for 25 minutes in full view of other beach-goers before they calmly went for a swim

When they returned from the swim and started again, a disgusted grandma filmed their actions on her mobile phone before calling police.

They were arrested & charged with lewd & lascivious behaviour.

The grandma who recorded the po*rno on her phone said;
"This went on for about 25 minutes. I’ve lived here since 1978 and I go to the beaches, and I’ve never seen anything like this. They laid on the beach and passed out for hours. We thought they were dead. But when they woke up, they cuddled for a while - then they started into the same thing they did before.”
