According to Tribune, during the meeting, Chris Ngige appealed to the oil marketers and companies not to lay off people as Nigeria is facing a lot of social security problems and could not to afford more problems through job cuts

That is what this government is pleading and we must emphasise that is what we want.”he said.

Abimbola Fernandez Reveals She Is A Lesbian

Being into a gay relationship is officially illegal and banned in the Federal Republic of Nigeria where it is considered a crime and punishable with 14 years in jail. But this has not stopped the daughter of the late Nigerian billionaire, Abimbola Fernandez from taking the bold step of announcing her status on social media.

On the 4th of February, 2016, Abimbola Fernandez took to the social media to confess to her being into a lesbian relationship encouraging the LGBTQ community to fly its flag.


According to reports, her lesbian lifestyle was a source of worry for her late father, the late billionaire Antionio Fernandez.

Abimbola is known to many Nigerians as an aspiring musician but her relationship with her father was below stellar and far from impressive. In the snapshot below, she is seen complaining bitterly about him and calling her father ’90 and miserable’:





The late Fernandez stood firmly against any homosexual relationship in his family and his daughter is now trying to paint another picture is against all he stood for. At no time did he approve of, or accept the daughter’s lesbianism.

According to reports, Abimbola insisted she loved her partner and planned to marry her by the time she turned 30. See snapshots below.



Before the late Fernandez passed on, he got to know of Abimbola’s lesbianism. This was how a family member present at the heart-rendering moment put it:

‘Chief got to know of Abimbola’s lesbian partner but only a few weeks to his death. He cursed her and said to us there never to mention her name in his presence again. He cried so hard. It was a distraught time for us all. ‘

Man Arrested For Truancy Turns Out To Be Murder Suspect

A teenager, Timilehin Agbeyomi, who was arrested after his elder brother reported him to the police for truancy, has been arraigned for alleged murder.

PUNCH Metro learnt that Agbeyomi’s brother had handed him over to the police on January 26, 2016 “to teach him a lesson” for shunning aluminium apprenticeship.
However, upon getting to the Bariga Police Station, a policeman discovered that the 18-year-old was among those wanted by the police in connection with the killing of a 20-year-old man, Imohlede Asije.

Asije was allegedly killed by Agbeyomi and his gang sometime in October, 2015, at a party on Oluwafere Street, Bariga.
It was learnt that during the party, the cult members had brought out their weapons, including guns and machetes, and attacked the deceased.
He was pronounced dead at a hospital in the area.
The police had launched a manhunt for the alleged killers, who included Agbeyomi.
His brother, who was not aware of the pending case, was reported to have led the police to where he was arrested.
Upon his arrest, the case was transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation, Yaba.
Agbeyomi told PUNCH Metro that although he attended the same secondary school with the deceased, he was not part of the squad that killed him.
He said, “I did not kill him. We attended the same secondary school and we were friends. I have known him for a long time. It is true that I am a cult member, but I did not kill him. I belong to the Aiye Confraternity, while he was a member of the Eiye Confraternity. On the day he died, I was at home and did not attend the party where he was killed. I just heard like every other person.
“I am an aluminium apprentice and because of some things, I was not going to work. My elder brother, who was not happy with my behaviour decided to use the police to teach me a lesson. On Tuesday last week, he handed me over to the police and it was while I was there that they brought up this matter.”
A police source, however, said the suspect was lying, adding that it was when he was arrested that he was discovered to be among those involved in the killing.
The police arraigned him on Thursday before an Ebute-Meta Magistrate’s Court on five counts of murder and belonging to an unlawful society.
The charges read in part, “That you, Timilehin Agbeyomi, and others at large, on October 24, 2015, at about 5.30am, on Oluwafere Street, Bariga, Lagos, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did conspire among yourselves to commit felony to wit: murder.
“That you, on the same date, time and place, in the aforementioned magisterial district, did kill one Imohlede Asije, aged 20 years, by shooting him on his stomach and cutting him with a machete on the head.”
The police prosecutor, Sergeant Olatunde Kehinde, said the offences were punishable under sections 231, 221, 409, 41 and 42 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, Nigeria, 2011.
Kehinde applied for the remand of the defendant in prison pending the release of legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions.
The defence counsel, Ola Ogunbiyi, did not oppose the remand application of the police.
The magistrate, Mrs. Bola Folarin-Williams, ordered that he should be remanded in prison for the first 30 days permitted by law.
She asked the police to duplicate the case file and forward same to the DPP for legal advice.
The case was adjourned till March 2, 2016.

Dabo, a retired public servant and special adviser on political matters in the office of the former Vice president, was a former Editor of Sunday New Nigeria, and Gaskia Tafi kwabo, and also one time Deputy National Chairman, PDP North.

According to him, the said money was for the purpose of media and publicity campaign for the PDP presidential election.

Explaining how the money was expended, Dabo told the court that, he created a media support system and a website called “WhatsApp Nigeria” to run media advocacy campaign for the party.

“I raised a team of facilitators and young internet experts were also employed to manage the website”, Dabo stated.

The witness further told the court that, he was shocked to hear through the media that, the money given to him by Metuh was part of the funds set aside to procure arms for fighting insurgency.

“Therefore, I decided to return the money to EFCC”, Dabo said.
Justice Abang, at the instance of counsel to the second defendant, Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN, adjourned to February 9, 2016 for further hearing.

Metuh is being tried for allegedly receiving N400million (four hundred million naira) from former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd), who is also being tried for laundering $2.1 billion.
