The Delta State Police Command has disclosed that following the recent trend of ritual killings, kidnapping, and internet fraud, it will arrest, investigate and charge to court citizens with suspicious sources of wealth, who cannot justify their means of earnings. The State Command Police Public Relations Officer, Bright Edafe, declared this on Sunday via his X handle. The police mouthpiece noted that the force men are empowered to arrest individuals who could not justify their sources of income and make them face the wrath of the law when found guilty.

Edafe mocked the trend that some Nigerians presumed it was wrong to question what he called their “suspicious wealth.” Edafe maintained that the police force had told its operatives to do the right thing and avoid seeing justifiable sources of income as a means to extort Nigerians.

“It is a very sad trend that people feel it’s wrong to question the suspicious wealth of persons who cannot lay claim to any justifiable means of income. We have cases of ritual killings, Kidnapping, and even internet fraud. We tell our men to do the right thing and not take it as an avenue to extort. “However, any person arrested and can’t justify his source of income should be properly investigated and charged to court when the cockroach in his cupboard has been unveiled. Like me, hate me, I don’t mind, it’s the simple truth,” Edafe wrote on the microblogging platform

Gunmen abducted two landlords in the Asokoro extension area of the Federal Capital Territory on Sunday.

They are demanding a ransom of N20 million for the victims’ release.

According to reports, the armed men used one of the landlords to gain entry to the other victim’s home.

One landlord, due to the heat, slept outside, where the gunmen discovered him and forced him to lead them to his residence at gunpoint.

Unsatisfied with what they saw in his home, they forced him to take them to a neighbor’s larger house.

The second landlord, arriving home on a motorcycle due to car issues, was attacked as he attempted to enter his house.

The kidnappers have contacted the families, demanding N20 million for the landlords’ release.

Initially demanding N10 million from each family, one offered N2 million, but the kidnappers rejected the partial payment and threatened harm if the full amount wasn’t paid.

Efforts are underway by both the police and the Asokoro Commander of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria to rescue the victims, with searches ongoing in nearby areas.

A tanker explosion rocked the Ojota area of Lagos State on Monday, causing panic among commuters as captured in online videos.

The explosion, which happened along the Ketu route, has yet to have its cause determined.

Confirmation of the incident came from a brief statement by the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA).

Tragically, one fatality has been reported due to an early morning fire in a residential building at Adealu, Lagos State. Margaret Adeseye, Director of the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, confirmed the incident.

The fire, contained to the upper floor of a four-flat storey building, was swiftly controlled by emergency responders, but one adult male, yet to be identified, was found at the scene and suspected to have perished.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, as stated by Adeseye.

Firefighters from the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, along with the Ambulance Service, promptly responded to the distress call at the scene.

Additionally, a diesel-laden truck caught fire in Ojota, swiftly addressed by the fire service team, with no reported casualties.

As Adeseye concluded, the situation in Ojota has been brought under control, ensuring the safety of the area following the incident involving the diesel truck.

The popular Nigerian media personality, Toke Makinwa, has revealed how her parents died in a house fire when she was a young girl.

She described the incident as one of her “biggest fears” that plunged her into a profound state of unease and uncertainty.

She recently recounted the horrific incident with comedian and filmmaker Ayo Makun, also known as AY, during an interview on her show.

After asking her guest about a recent fire incident at his Lagos property, Makinwa began sharing a similar story about her family.

Recall that AY’s Lagos home was destroyed by fire in August.

“I was a child victim of a house fire, and sadly, both of my parents died as a result of that, that’s one of my biggest fears,” she remarked.

AY said, “I apologize for that. I’m just hearing for the first time.”

AY then claimed that his house caught fire while he was on tour in Canada and that he woke up to discover numerous missed calls.

“Knowing that my family was on vacation was my thanksgiving point. I woke up to about 78 missed calls that day. Any time I see something like that, I just know something has happened. I opened my phone and saw my house on Instablog,” he said.

Darosha Losobeh, a cousin and personal assistant to the late singer, Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, has refuted accusations of breaking the deceased’s neck.

A circulating video suggested that Losobeh broke Mohbad’s neck to fit him into the casket used for his burial.

Mohbad allegedly died of ear infection on September 12, 2023, at 27, and his death has since sparked controversy, with many Nigerians calling for justice for his sudden demise, leading to the arrest of his former boss, Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley and Samson Balogun aka Sam Larry.

The duo who were allegedly arrested for bullying the late singer had been released.

Subsequently, a nurse who attended to him and his childhood friend, Primeboy, were identified as primary suspects in his demise.

Responding to the allegations regarding the neck, Darosha denied the claims.

In a post via his Instagram story, he expressed distress over the impact of these accusations on his mental well-being.

He wrote: “I’m so down to the extent that I had to write this to clear this whole story about me going online that I bent my love’s neck; this is the craziest and saddest thing that ever happened to me in my whole life. That I broke my brother’s neck, seriously, this hurt me so much.

“What happened about the neck was that when we got to Ikorodu, we were told there was no space to keep his body at the mortuary and we didn’t want him buried that night. So, a worker there advised the family to pay for an ambulance and a coffin where we can keep him until morning, and the same ambulance would drive him down to the place of burial.

“The whole family agreed to the idea because the ambulance that took us to Ikorodu was complaining that they had to leave the same night back to the island. It was only his mum that was not present there that midnight.

“The N1million I sent to his dad is not for him to spend because it was instructed that we should use the money in doing the burial arrangement, but unfortunately, the place we buried him is not nice to me and not secure, so I told his father to use the money to erect a fence for his safety. The whole team and family can testify to this because I have every proof, and I sent his brother the rest of the money when we arrived home.

“I was the first person that went to Panti to write a statement and called for questioning. You can go to Panti station to ask more about me, not coming online to say what you don’t know; well, I know it’s all for content, but God in heaven will judge you, tarnishing my image even with all that I am going through.

“About the salt, when my father died, a salt was placed on his chest till we arrived and I was told it was local embalming to keep him fresh till the whole family arrived, and I did the same thing because a lot of people were still coming to see him before leaving to Ikorodu that night.

“Lastly, about his properties and music catalogs, Mohbad has a lawyer that controls all of these things, and he has a contract with ONErpm, so all of these things are controlled by them, and his car is parked in front of his house at Orchid.

“I can’t drive his car because I have mine. If we really want justice, let the government work, and let’s wait for an autopsy. Stop bashing his loved ones. Abi una wants us to go depressed too #justiceformohbad.”

The management of the University of Calabar (UniCal) has announced increase in the university’s tuition fees for undergraduates by over 100 per cent.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the announcement was made in a statement made available to newsmen in Calabar on Monday.

In the statement by the institution’s spokesman, Mr Effiong Eyo, it said the upward review of the fees was taken at an emergency meeting of the university’s Senate on Friday.

The release disclosed that the implementation of the upward review takes effect from the 2022/2023 and 2023/2024 academic sessions.

NAN reports that with the increment, new students, returning students and the final year students for the non science courses are expected to pay N111,000, N91,500 and N114,000 respectively.

In addition, they are also to pay N36,500, N21,500 and N21,500 respectively as third party dues.

Similarly, fees for science courses were increased to N155,000, N125,000 and N148,000 respectively for new, returning students and final year students.

In a likewise manner, they are also to pay N38,500, N21,500 and N21,500 respectively as third party dues.

NAN reports that before the increment, tuition fees for an average student, depending on the department, was N64, 050 for new students, N52,050 for final year and N49,500 for the returning students.

The management noted that the increment was necessitated by the current economic realities and the need to maintain the academic standard which the university was known for. (NAN)

Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Ibadan, Most Rev. Joseph Akinfenwa, has urged Federal Government to declare a three-day prayer and fasting period for God to intervene in the country’s affairs.

Akinfenwa made the call during the Advent Carol of Nine Lessons and Songs held in Ibadan.

The Anglican Bishop said the situation of things in the country, especially the high cost of food items, transportation and accommodation, called for urgent God's intervention.

He stated, however, that the situation was not only common in the country but the world at large.

“But that of our country calls for worry and all of us, not only the government, need to join hands and tackle it.

"This is because we are blessed with enough natural resources and therefore shouldn’t suffer as such.

“Everybody should be involved but the government should do more.

“Those in government can cut their salaries and allowances and use the money to cater for the poor, to show a good example,” the Bishop said.

Akinfenwa also advised all Christian faithful to be focused on the second coming of Christ as all things happening in the world lately showed that the end will come one day.

“To prepare for Christ’s coming, the faithful has to pursue a deeper relationship with God and always put God’s word into practice.”

He urged them to shun the love of money and imbibe the culture of forgiving one another in spite of all odds.

“We shouldn’t love our traditions more than God. Let’s allow the Holy Bible to deal with the problem called the love of money.

“Let’s not be distracted with the happenings of these days and forget that Christ is coming again.

”We should all be on the alert because His second coming is the most significant event this era is waiting for.

“No matter the situation we may find ourselves, let us always find succour in God’s word,” Akinfenwa said.

He added that this season of Advent is that of joy and carols were all about celebrating the works of Christ’s salvation to mankind.
