Veteran Nollywood actor, Elder Ifeanyi Ikenga Gbulie is dead. 

Elder Danda, as he’s famously called, passed away two days back after battling stroke for years.  Ifeanyi died in Enugu.

Confirming news of his demise, member of the Directors Guild of Nigeria, DGN, Chima Okoroji, said the late actor would be greatly missed.

“This is too heavy for me; I love this man with a passion his humility is out of this world. I will miss you so much,” he said. 

The late actor is known for his elderly roles in films, such as End of Dreams and Under Fire.

A banker and Account Officer with Access Bank, Ojo Adefemi Adedoyin, who allegedly connived with one Favour Oriafoh, 30, to defraud a Hong Kong national, Xu Yue of £79,000 (Seventy Nine Thousand Pounds) has been arrested by EFCC.

They were arrested by operatives of the Uyo Zonal Office of the Commission, following investigation into a petition received from the Hong Kong Police Force, that the young lady was a victim of romance scam traced to Nigeria.

Admitting to the crime, Oriafoh who goes by the con name, Terry Mac, confessed that he opened a FaceBook account in the name, just to defraud whoever falls prey to his baits.

“She had fallen in love with me as Terry Mac, a football agent,” he said.

He thereafter took advantage of her love and defrauded her of the said amount, using the domiciliary account of one Adeyemi Hassan Adedeji. During interrogation, he confessed that the Banker, Adedoyin, provided him with the domiciliary account information to which the money was transferred to.

“The agreement was that whatever funds were received through the account, the account officer and the owner of the account will be entitled to 15 per cent of the funds,” he confessed. The Banker has made useful information to the Commission and they will soon be charged to court.

So on Friday, 14th December 2018 after the Vice Presidential debate, a Twitter user  that goes by the name, Johannxs decided to troll the Vice Presidential candidate of the People's Democratic Party, Peter Obi with a tweet on his Twitter account. But this apparently did not go down well with who was managing the official Twitter account of renowned beer brand, Guinness, who in turn posted an insulting tweet in response to what Johannxs posted by telling him to 'shut his dirty mouth up'.

In what can only be seen as an embarrassment to the brand, the media handlers of Guinness Nigeria has issued an official statement apologising for the tweet.

Read their official statement below:

Chineye Ndubiife has been arrested for murdering Wisdom, the 2-year-old son of her neighbor, Promise Samuel, in Lagos. The incident happened, on Wednesday, December, 12, 2018, at 70 Lawani Street, Alakoto, Olodi Apapa.

The suspect who is cooling off in the cell at Tolu Police station, revealed how she sent a child to call Wisdom from their room. Ndubiife, a mother of one, then took him to the backyard where she hit his head against the wall, before hitting his head again with a big stone, leading to his death.

Consequently, she dumped the child's corpse in the toilet, where Mr Samuel later found him. Asked why she killed the boy, Ms Ndubuife disclosed that her intention was to inflict severe injury on him so that his father would spend money on treating him.

Passengers onboard an AirPeace flight were all in a thanksgiving mode on Friday after they survived a terrifying  turbulence while on a Lagos-Enugu bound flight.

According to Instagram user @ennie_louiee, the turbulence was so severe,  the oxygen masks in the plane came out. A three-weeks old baby was gasping for air after the plane became stuffy.
