Ekiti election: PDP reveals amount ‘shared’ by APC to buy votes, blames police

South West chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has rejected the outcome of the result of the governorship election held in Ekiti State on Saturday.

The party blamed the Nigeria Police Force for allegedly allowing the malpractice that led to the defeat of their candidate.

PDP said police gave an opportunity to the members of the All progressives Congress, APC, to be sharing money to buy votes.

The National Vice Chairman of the PDP , Dr . Eddy Olafeso, spoke with journalists in Akure, the Ondo State capital on Sunday.

He alleged that the APC spent N18 billion on the election, declaring that the winner of the election, Dr. Kayode Fayemi deserved no congratulation message from the PDP.

He said, “We have witnessed what happened in Ekiti State, despite our crying and screaming to the Nigerian people that the APC government was coming to Ekiti to destroy and disrupt democracy, to rig elections and to muscle us out and they eventually scientifically carried out what we have been warning the Nigerian people about.

”What transpired in Ekiti is not democracy but a complete rape of democracy and the will of the people. It is rather unfortunate we witnessed this despite the fact that APC bequeathed to this nation .

”This is a prelude to what we should be expecting in 2019, we have been rigged out , we have been muscled out with the connivance of the police force in particular. The police gave coverage for the open corruption that APC stalwarts got involved in Ekiti State.

”They chased all our agents away and put on their neck PDP agents tags and signed across all documents for them but one day truth will come out. We rejected in totality the outcome of Ekiti election.

”This is the limit of corruption and we warned before the election that the Abacha loot that is being taken and distributed without any appropriation is going to find its way to Ekiti. It was like a trading place and they turned our democracy upside down.

”This is rather unfortunate and they are going to severely pay for it because this history will not go unchecked and we are going to do everything possible to ensure that we cleanse the whole country as soon as we come into power in 2019.”

BREAKING: Gov. Ortom dumps APC

The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, at the banquet hall of the Government House in Makurdi on Monday announced that he is no longer a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

 

Ortom stated this while swearing in the newly-appointed Special Adviser on Local Government and Chieftain Affairs, Jerome Torshimbe disclosed that the APC had given him the red card.

Speaking with DAILY POST on Monday, the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, quoted his principal as saying, “As for party, I’ve been given the red card and I’m now outside the pitch. So, if I have been given the red card and I’m standing outside, that means I’m a free man.”

IgbereTv recalls that Governor Ortom had been reported as considering to dump the APC

Meanwhile, the Governor is yet to disclose the party he is moving to, assuring however that as soon as he makes up his mind in that regard, he would make it known to the Benue people.

He said, “I don’t know what will happen next but I’m waiting. If others approach me, then I will tell the Benue people that I’m joining another football club.”

He therefore called on the people of the state to remain united and not allow party or ethnicity cause division among them, stressing that God who helped him to win in 2015 is well able to see him through in the coming general elections.

“Let party or ethnicity not divide us. I’m a child of destiny and it’s only a God that will decide what I will be. These challenges that we see today, we shall see them no more. All that we are required to do is not to begin to be wayward in our conduct but to move to the righteous side of God. Once we do that, things will work out for our good,” he said.

How Man Was Sent To Prison After Selling Company’s Cable To Buy N100 Bread

A 39-year old company driver, Mr. Jonah Ehiwe, has been arrested for allegedly stealing company’s property to buy N100 bread at Bola Jegede Close in Ajao Estate, Lagos.

The police alleged that Mr. Ehiwe stole a cable belonging to the hotel and was caught in the act by the security men on duty. He was then handed over to the police at Ajao Estate for prosecution for the offence.

However, the suspect informed the police that he was employed as a driver and had not been paid. He said that he had gone to the management to borrow money to buy food, so that when they want to pay his salary it can be deducted from it but they refused. He explained that he saw the cable and decided to take to sell it as scrap in order to buy bread. He said they arrested him and claimed that he stole it.

It was gathered that the police attempted to intervene since the item was recovered but the management insisted that Ehiwe must be prosecuted to serve as deterrent to other staff who might want to try such.

He was charged before Isolo Magistrates court for stealing and he pleaded not guilty. He was granted bail and remanded in prison custody to perfect his bail condition.

On the adjourned date, Ehiwe changed his position and pleaded guilty.

The prosecutor, Mr. Oje Uagbale, presented the facts before the court and asked the court to sentence him accordingly.

During the session, Mr. Ehiwe informed the court about his pitiable condition after he was employed by the complainant who did not pay his salary. He narrated how he even asked them to lend him money to buy bread in order to have strength to work but they refused.

He said he then saw the cable on the floor, picked it to sell as scrap before the security men arrested and handed him over to the police.

P.M.Express confirmed that his narration attracted sympathy in the court room as litigants expressed pity about his situation.
However, the Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. O.A. Teluwo, found him guilty as charged, but discharged and released him from prison custody and he was allowed to go home.

Two Families Fight Over Land Ownership In Ogun State. Photos

Two families are at loggerheads over land ownership in Ogun state.  According to a petition to the Area Commander of Sango-otta Area Command of the Nigeria Police Force, by Sohe family of Okanran in Ado-Odo, Ogun State, the Sohes deposed that their forefather, late Joseph Sohe, purchased a large expanse of land from Akitunde Liasu, a member of Kuseku family, also late, on December 20, 1972, for which the Sohes have been enjoying maximum control and unhindered possession.

The Sohes, in the petition, filed on their behalf by their solicitors, Olanrewaju Aiyedun Esquire, averred that they have been exercising various rights of ownership vide cultivating economic crops and alienating to third parties.

The petitioners stated that, given the rising commercial value of land in the area, members of Kuseku family have taken up arms against them, giving the names of arrowheads as Biodun Oke, Jaiye Jimoh, Tajudeen Ogunlowo, a.k.a Aperin, Segun Ojo, a.k.a Apabiekun, Oke Posu and Temitope Akapo.

Sohes allegations against the Kusekus, as contained in the petition dated July 4, 2018,were kidnapping, criminal assault, theft, massive destruction of properties, gun-running, police harassment and threat to life.

According to the petition, “However, in view of the rising commercial value of land, the aforementioned have now violently and criminally encroached on our clients’ land with the aid of notorious land speculators, thugs, hoodlums and vandals, who intermittently invade Okanran Village. They are always fully armed with dangerous weapons like guns, axes, cutlasses, knives and charms. They also, at different occasions, chased away our clients from their houses, maliciously destroyed their properties and threatened them with police”.

An instance of kidnap of one Mrs. Gusi Joseph on May 6, 2017 by a gang allegedly led by Tajudeen Ogunlowo was cited. The said kidnap victim, according to the petitioners, had not been seen, even as at the time of filing this story.

The kidnap case, the petitioners said, was reported both at the Ado-Odo Police Divisional Headquarters and Badagry Division in Lagos. “But the nefarious incident was conveniently swept under the carpet by the powerful connections of the above-mentioned persons, as they have always consistently boasted. One Mr Yemi Joseph was also kidnapped on July 3, 2018. He was mercilessly beaten black and blue, which made him to sustain serious bodily injuries”, they alleged

While pleading with the police to intervene in the matter before it gets out of hand, Sohes solicitors narrated how, on July 3, 2018, the aforementioned violently invaded Okanran Village “and have now taken over our clients’ property through the instrumentality of coercion, threat and reign of terror, illegally dispossessed our client of their properties and are now expeditiously distorting the landscape. The aforenamed, led by their head thugs, Tajudeen Ogunlowo, a.k.a Aperin and Segun Ojo, a.k.a Apabiekun and an army of gun-wielding hoodlums now patrol our clients’ land, harassing, assaulting and intimidating them with impunity in criminal violation of of our clients’ constitutionally guaranteed rights”.

Frantic efforts were made by Crimepuzzle to get the Kusekus’ reactions to the allegations, of which Mrs. Tope Akapo, at the first instance, in a telephone conversation debunked the allegations, saying “how will the Eguns come to claim land here?”

At the second attempt, Tope Akapo told Crimepuzzle that she had a political meeting in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, promising to get back to us, of which she did not.

Pregnant Girlfriend Of Liverpool Star Dumps Him For Cheating On Her. Photos

Liverpool star Nathaniel Clyne has reportedly been dumped by his girlfriend after claims he cheated on her while she was pregnant. Kelci Molloy, 26, is said to have split with the football ace, 27, after seeing pictures of him with a girl outside a nightclub in London in June.

 

The mother-of-one, who is now eight months pregnant, says she was in hospital at the time suffering from pregnancy complications.

She claims she asked Clyne to come home and look after her but he decided to go out drinking instead, according to the Daily Star Sunday.

Last month the Premier League star was pictured being restrained by a scantily-clad woman during an apparent confrontation with a male reveller outside a Mayfair club.

Ms Molloy is also said to have claimed that CCTV footage from their home shows him ‘twerking’ with ‘countless’ girls in their jacuzzi – which was ‘heartbreaking to watch’.

tp

‘I told him that I had seen it and that’s when he admitted cheating for the first time,’ she reportedly told the Daily Star Sunday.

After the alleged jacuzzi footage surfaced they agreed to make up and start again, she reportedly claims, but the pictures of him in Mayfair were the final straw.

Ms Molloy said the first warning signs Clyne was being unfaithful came in January when she received messages claiming he was cheating on her – which he denied.

Now she says ‘enough is enough’ and she is now facing the ‘devastating’ reality of being eight months pregnant and split from her partner.

Molloy and Clyne met on Facebook in June 2017 and quickly became a couple, with the footballer whisking her away on a romantic holiday to Qatar.
