Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison by a New York judge on Wednesday for rape and sexual assault in a landmark case for the #MeToo movement.

Justice James Burke ignored the pleas of Weinstein’s defence team to give their client the minimum of five years behind bars, issuing a heavy sentence close to the maximum 29 years allowed.

Earlier Weinstein told the court he was “totally confused” about what was happening.

“I’m worried about this country,” he said, adding that his “empathy” had increased in the three years since accusations against him ignited the #MeToo global reckoning against men abusing positions of power.

The sentencing capped a sensational downfall for the once-powerful 67-year-old, who lost much of his personal fortune estimated at $150 million as he became a pariah in the entertainment industry.

Nearly 90 women, including Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek, have come forward alleging 40 years of vile predatory behaviour by the Oscar-winning producer of “Shakespeare in Love” and numerous other critical and box office hits.

The Silence Breakers — a group of 24 Weinstein accusers that included Ashley Judd, Lauren Sivan, Rosanna Arquette and Rose McGowan — said in a statement circulated to US entertainment media Weinstein’s legacy would always be that he was a convicted rapist.

“He is going to jail — but no amount of jail time will repair the lives he ruined, the careers he destroyed, or the damage he has caused,” they said.

Weinstein was brought from the notorious Rikers Island jail into the Manhattan criminal court in a wheelchair shortly before 9:30 am (1330 GMT) to learn his fate.

– ‘No longer hiding’ –

He was found guilty of a criminal sexual act in the first degree and rape in the third degree on February 24, in a verdict hailed by the #MeToo movement.

Seven men and five women convicted him of raping ex-actress Jessica Mann in 2013 and of forcibly performing oral sex on former production assistant Mimi Haleyi in 2006.

Mann, 34, and Haleyi, 42, delivered powerful victim impact statements in court.

Haleyi said being attacked by Weinstein had “diminished my confidence and faith in people.”

Mann said his conviction had given her the strength to rebuild her life.

“My monsters are no longer hiding in my closet,” she told the court.

Weinstein appeared confident during the trial, laughing and smiling for journalists as he shuffled into and out of court every day using a walking frame following back surgery.

The producer – famous for his hard-nosed approach to work and Oscars campaigns — was cleared of the most serious charges of predatory sexual assault, as well as rape in the first degree.

Prosecutors called on Burke to issue a lengthy jail term, saying Weinstein engaged in a “lifetime of abuse” and had shown “a total lack of remorse” for his actions.

In a pre-sentencing letter, the prosecution asked the judge to consider 36 other sexual abuse and harassment allegations against Weinstein dating back to the 1970s that were not part of the trial.

“He got drunk on the power,” lead prosecutor Joan Illuzzi-Orbon told the court.

“He held all cards and played them at his will,” she added.

Weinstein’s team suggested Burke should take into account the achievements of a man whose films received more than 300 Oscar nominations and 81 statuettes.

“His life story, his accomplishments, and struggles are simply remarkable and should not be disregarded in total because of the jury’s verdict,” the lawyers wrote in a pre-sentencing memo.

 

(AFP)

Two women who have been best friends since they were kids discovered just last month that they are biological sisters.

The women, identified as Ashley Thomas and Latoya Wimberly, have been inseparable for 17 years. People often commented that they look alike. As children, they had identical gaps in their front teeth, high cheek bones and the same complexion. They also wore the same size in shoes. They shared the same interests, including in music and fashion.

 

Though they were really close, they never suspected they were biological sisters until in January 2020 when Latoya Wimberly, 29, had a party to celebrate her engagement. Ashley Thomas, 31, shared photos from the party on Facebook.

Some of the photos included Latoya Wimberly’s father, Kenneth Wimberly.

While looking at the photos online, a friend of Ashley Thomas’ mother saw Kenneth and realized she knew him.

“Ashley’s mom’s best friend told her she had no idea my dad was Kenny,” Latoya Wimberly said. “She said she and Ashley’s mom used to hang around him back when they were young. When Ashley told me, I knew something didn’t click. So I asked her to send me a picture of her mom’s best friend and showed it to my dad and asked him if he recognized her.”

Kenneth immediately recognized the woman. And later, when shown a photo of Ashley Thomas’ mother, he recognized her, too. He revealed they had had a brief romantic relationship.

 

When he was told that Ashley Thomas did not know who her biological father was, Kenneth suspected it might be him and he volunteered to go for a DNA test with his daughter Latoya and her friend Ashley.

On February 21, 2020, the results came in and the girls discovered that they are indeed sisters.

“It was a Friday, and I was at work when I got the call,” Ashley Thomas said. “When Kenny told me he was my dad, chills went through my body. I couldn’t think. I couldn’t process it. I couldn’t even talk to them.”

Thomas was 15 when she learned that the man who had raised her was not her biological father. Her mother, who died 11 years ago, never told her who may have been her father. Ashley’s family had also never met Latoya’s family, so they didn’t suspect , since Aanything.

However, Ashley hung out with Latoya a lot, her father Kenneth played a fatherly role in her life, without knowing she’s his biological daughter.”

Ashley was the only one of my friends who didn’t miss a single family event,” Latoya Wimberly said. “She was extremely close to my entire family on both sides. If my father is taking me out, Ashley’s coming with me. If someone asks who are those girls, he says ‘Those are my girls.’ If she has a car problem or any kind of issue, she always goes to my dad. But somehow our families never met.”

Ashley Thomas described the discovery as “beautiful,” but also “extremely emotional.”

She said: “I have so many questions for my mom and I will never have any of those answers. Did she know he was my father?”

She added: “Big Kenny was like my dad. He was there for me the whole time and I had no idea.”

CNN reports that before this discovery, the three have always been close and even regarded each other as family.

Ashley Thomas, who has two children, said: “It’s just a weird feeling. It’s definitely going to take some time. I’m still in disbelief. But I want him to be a part of his grandchildren’s lives.”

Latoya Wimberly said she’s happy for their sisterhood to be official, but also feels guilty that Kenneth was more involved in her life than Ashley’s.

“I watched Ashley go through so many things growing up and now all I can think about is that her father was here and he could have been there for her just like he was for me,” said Latoya. “So that’s very emotional.”

As for Kenneth, he said he’s looking forward to building a stronger relationship with Thomas and “loving her as his daughter.” He also wants to spend more time with his newfound grandchildren.

“I’ve always seen the little ones around and this entire time they were my grandchildren and I didn’t even know,” he said.

Senior lawyer and rights activist Mike Ozekhome said Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II was dethroned because he committed a ‘a mortal sin’, as he consistently railed against the archaic style of governance of the northern elite.

Ozekhome said the northern elite despite the criticisms of Sanusi, have continued their obnoxious policies of repression, retrogression, subjugation, oppression and marginalisation of the vast majority of their people.

In an article, in which Ozekhome examined the constitutionality and legality of both the removal and the banishment of the emir, Ozekhome said he saw the Emir’s fall coming and he had forewarned about the possibility.

Ozekhome said he was not surprised that Governor Abdullahi Ganduje dethroned the Emir.

“I saw it coming and I had said so in an earlier write-up, where I had condemned the balkanisation of the centuries-long revered Kano Emirate into four segmented Emirates out of political exigency and crass opportunism by a rampaging Governor. After all, a fruit does not fall far away from the mother-tree.

“Governor Ganduje is merely following the examples in acts of impunity and lawlessness he learnt from the Federal government at the centre”, he said.

“The reasons the Emir came under the hammer are quite simple and very well known. Emir Sanusi has continuously preached modernity as against the archaic style of governance of the Northern elites who have continued their obnoxious policies of repression, retrogression, subjugation, oppression and marginalisation of the vast majority of their people.

“He has spoken vehemently against the Almajiri system that turns children and the youths unto the streets in their thousands as able-bodied beggars.

“He has unrepentantly frowned at the girl-child marriage and labour. He has, now and again, lampooned the Northern elites for inflicting untold hardship on the people of the North.

 

“He has courageously preached the dire necessity for education as a sure liberator of his people from the doldrums of ignorance and wretchedness.

“The elites, no doubt, gaped, with awe and shock, at this fire-eating, no-nonsense intellectual Emir, whom they believed was hiding under his royal turban and robes to de-robe the Northern elites of their mystical, but firm, grip on power and its intoxicating effect as an aphrodisiac.

“They believed Emir Sanusi was opening up their smelly flanks to the outside world, to be laughed at, to be scorned, to be derided, and to be opened to vitriolic attack by the hoi-polloi whose eyes may be opened to begin to question their years of enslavement and impoverishment.

“This is the “mortal sin” committed by Emir Sanusi. And lo and behold, they resolved, through the instrumentality of Governor Ganduje, that Emir Sanusi must be stopped dead on the tracks before he committed more havoc”.

Ibrahim Muktar, attorney-general of Kano, says the state government did not banish Muhammadu Sanusi II, deposed emir, from the state.

The Kano executive council chaired by Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of the state, had removed Sanusi from the throne for alleged “total disrespect to the office of the governor”, among other allegations.

After his dethronement, the ex-monarch was first moved to Loko community in Nasarawa state but was relocated to another part of the state.

Speaking on Channels Television on Wednesday, the attorney-general said the government only removed Sanusi from office for insubordination.

When asked if the emir has been banished from Kano, Muktar responded: “Of course, of course”. But when the question was asked a second time, Muktar denied the banishment, saying it was not part of the state government’s decision.

He said the former emir was only taken out of Kano state by the police owing to intelligence reports, adding that he is not aware of any decision to banish Sanusi.

“If you listen to the secretary to the state government when he was addressing the press on the issue of the removal of the emir from office, there was nowhere he stated that the emir was banished from Kano state,” he said.

“So, the decision of the government when the emir was removed on Monday was that he was removed from office and a new one appointed. The issue of banishment was not part of the decision of the Kano state government.

“We have been hearing from the media that he has been banished but what I know is that he was taken out of Kano state but banishment was not part of our decision. There is no such decision to the best of my knowledge.”

He said the decision to dethrone Sanusi was not based on the issues in court, but on administrative grounds.

“The state government has not taken the law into its hands. Let me explain that the decision to remove the emir from office is administrative and was not based on the issues pending before the court. All the issues pending before the court have not to do with the removal of the emir or the dethronement,” he said.

“No decision on that actually (continuation of Sanusi’s probe). I cannot pre-empt the position of the government on whether investigation will stop or will continue.”

Sanusi’s lawyers had asked for the release of the former emir, saying his forced relocation to Nasarawa is illegal and unconstitutional.

A video making the rounds on social media shows the moment a man pretended to have been infected by coronavirus as he used a ‘coughing technique’ to displace passengers on a train from their seat.

In the video, a man with a face mask could be seen aboard a train, he got to a row of seats and saw that it was already occupied by other passengers.

While pretending to be looking for a space in the seat, he started coughing, causing panic among the passengers who feared he might be infected with the coronavirus.

To prevent themselves from contracting the disease, they all left the seat for him.

Watch the video below:

Two men, Kito popularly known as Utali Ekwensu (the devil’s cane) and his accomplice Chidi have been arrested after they killed a homosexual man who contacted them via Facebook.

After being interrogated they confessed to the crime and narrated how it happened.

Kito said the deceased, who is from Benue state but lives in Owerri, contacted him on Facebook and propositioned him for sex.

He accepted and they agreed to meet around Kito’s location.

The man also promised to give Kito 20,000 Naira after their sexual appointment.

However, Kito had other plans.

He said he connived with his friends to steal the 20K from the deceased when he arrives, without rendering the sexual service agreed upon.

When the deceased arrived as planned, Kito asked him for the 20K but the man said he will only pay after their tryst.

Kito then signalled his accompli‏ce and he came out and forcefully tried to collect the money from the deceased.

The men said that a fight broke out and Kito hit the man with the weapon in his hand, killing him.

At first, Kito made it sound like he had multiple accomplices but when asked who else was involved in the murder, he said it was only him and Chidi.

Reports claim Kito specializes in luring gay men, raping them, collecting their money, before killing them.

A witness claims his friend fortunately escaped from Kito’s snare.

Below is a video of Kito and his accomplice confessing to killing a man from Benue state.

Abubakar Mahmoud, one of the lawyers representing Muhammadu Sanusi, former emir of Kano, says after the dethronement, the ex-monarch wanted to move to Lagos state, but was forced to Nasarawa.

The Kano executive council chaired by Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of the state, had removed Sanusi from the throne on Monday, replacing him with Aminu Ado Bayero, one of the sons of his predecessor.

At a press briefing on Tuesday, Mahmoud said he was at the palace when the letter of dethronement was brought to Sanusi, who acknowledged it.

He said the commissioner of police refused to grant Sanusi’s wish to move to Lagos, saying the directive given in the letter – for him to travel to Nasarawa – must be obeyed.

“In the letter of deposition, it was stated that the Emir was to be removed to Nassarawa State. We requested to know if he was under arrest and if so we needed to see the warrant. The Commissioner of Police informed us that he was not under arrest,” he said.

“We informed the Commissioner of Police that was illegal and violation of his constitutional rights to remove to Nassarawa State against his wish. The Emir informed the Commissioner of Police that his friends had sent an aircraft to fly him and his family to Lagos and requested that they should be provided with necessary security to the airport so that he could leave.

“The Commissioner refused saying that was not their instruction. They were willing to allow the family to leave for Lagos but he was to be flown to Abuja then onwards taken to Nassarawa State. It was clear to us that both the Emir and ourselves were helpless and the police and other security agents were willing to take any measure and use force to achieve their objective.

“In order not to jeopardize the Emir’s safety or the safety of any member of his family or indeed other persons around, the Emir decided to cooperate and proceed in the vehicles provided by the operatives.

“We accompanied the Commissioner of Police to the Nigerian Airforce base in Kano where the Emir was put a private aircraft and departed at about 6.40pm. The family subsequently boarded the aircraft arranged by his friends and departed for Lagos about 15 minutes later.”

The lawyer said from Abuja, Sanusi was taken on a journey of seven hours by road till he arrived at a remote location in Nasarawa.

Mahmoud said this was done to traumatise the former monarch, adding that he has been unable to reach Sanusi all through the day.

He called on Nigerians, the international community and other stakeholders to intervene in the matter to ensure the safety of the former emir.
