This is the 200 level History and Diplomatic student of the University of Abuja who was reportedly found dead last night in front of the school’s permanent site gate.

According to a Facebook user who shared the story, the deceased was coming to school from home when she was attacked by armed robbers.

While trying to get away from them, she mistakenly ran to the road and was hit by a car.

The supposed eyewitness AbdulKereem wrote:



A pregnant woman, identified as Chinagorom Fustine, has been killed after her car plunged into the Lagos Lagoon from the Mekwen Bridge, Bonny Camp, inward Marina area of the state.

The vehicle, with number plate, Lagos MUS 38 BL, reportedly plunged into the lagoon on Saturday.

The driver of the Kia Rio, identified as Felix Aniele, was said to have swum out to the river bank, where he was rescued.

However, before help could come the way of Fustine, she was said to have died.

The General Manager of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Adeshina Tiamiyu, said the car was towed to the Bar Beach Police Station, while the corpse was deposited in the Mainland General Hospital Mortuary, Yaba.

He said, “We received a distress call regarding a car that plunged into the lagoon at the Mekwen Bridge at about 7.47pm on Saturday.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the silver colour Kia Rio, with two occupants, plunged into the lagoon around that time. The driver swam out to the river bank, while the other occupant, a female, was trapped.

“Emergency responders, assisted by the local divers, were able to recover the car from the lagoon and the dead body of the woman.”

Tiamiyu advised motorists to observe rules while plying the road.

The spokesperson for the National Emergency Management Agency, South West zone, Ibrahim Farinoye, said the victim, who was pregnant, was recovered around 11.47pm on Saturday.

Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested a suspected robber, Gbenga Babatunde, for allegedly robbing some residents of the state.

The police said the 25-year-old was arrested after a failed attempt to rob a woman who had withdrawn money from an Automated Teller Machine point in Alaba Rago Market, Ojo, Lagos State.

The police allegedly recovered a locally-made shotgun with two cartridges from the suspect.

“We gathered that he was not alone. He had an accomplice, who managed to escape after the botched operation,” a policeman said.

The suspect reportedly confessed to the crime, saying he went into robbery about two years ago.

He said, “I have been in the crime since I met Samson (the accomplice) at a joint in Alaba two years ago. Since then, we have been working together. We have robbed about 35 people. What we usually did was to get to any ATM point by 4am and hide.

“As soon as our victims collected the money, we usually accosted them and would collect the money and escape. The largest money we collected was N40,000. Yesterday (Saturday), we collected N12,500.

“This morning (Sunday), we wanted to collect money from a lady and she ran away. We thought she had gone, not knowing that she went to inform the RRS. That was around 5am. They arrested me, but my partner escaped.”

Also recovered from the suspect was a First Bank MasterCard, belonging to one Iweka Christopher Uchenna, and a Diamond Bank debit card, owned by one Nkechi Esther Idoko.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said, “The case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department.”

The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Sunday said the Federal Government would at the appropriate time convert the new official residence being built for the Vice President to another use.

Osinbajo said this in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande, amid continued criticism of the project which is expected to gulp over N7b.

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory, Dino Melaye, had disclosed recently that only the security post, also known as gateman’s house, in the building will gulp N250m.

This was revealed on Thursday by the ‎Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory.

But Akande said the decision to build the new residence and the controversial gatehouse preceded the present administration.

He said Osinbajo’s position had remained that his present official residence, Akinola Aguda House, is good enough for him.

He gave an indication that the 14 building in the residence which is already in about 85% completion stage would be used for another purpose.

The statement read, “For the umpteenth time, we like to clarify that the proposed plan of the immediate past administration to build a new official residence for the occupant of the Office of the Vice President, including the controversial gatehouse preceded this administration.

“The project which started in 2010, was initiated and funded by the immediate past administration, but had never featured in the two budget proposals of the Buhari administration: neither in the 2016 nor the 2017 spending plans.

“Any suggestion therefore that this project benefits our administration or that it reflects our spending style or preferences is not only misleading but blatantly false.

“Besides, the incumbent Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has said publicly that he considers Aguda House, which he currently occupies, a befitting official residence for the Vice President and sufficient for his needs.

“While the project is now about 85% complete, the Federal Government, in the circumstances, will decide at the appropriate time what is the best use for the 14 buildings already on the project site.”

At the Rivers state gala night hosted in honor of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo some days ago, comedian Klint da Drunk who performed at the event, gave Osinbajo his hard earned N5000. He quickly reminded the Vice President that in the bible, it is said that when you give, you will receive back, pressed down, shaken together and running over.

Osinbajo in his very smart and hilarious response said ...

"Everything has been going well until Klint da Drunk gave me an expensive N5000. I have kept it close to his excellency, the governor, in case he asks for it back because he can say that I was drunk when I gave you the money. I must remind him that the scripture that he referred to which suggest that if you give you will be given more, is when you give to God and not to an Ijebu man"he said

OAP Freeze has replied Kiibati Bankole, host of Merrybet Celebrity Fans Challenge, after she finally spoke about his alleged debt claims.

He shared the above text message conversation and wrote;

"@kiibati, -
How come you were still begging me, less than two weeks to the event, to bear with you as you will pay N500k, which you never did, and you never called or texted me to cancel off my appearance.
-
You obviously have been doing this for a while so it's in your DNA, do you know how many people I have met randomly, who told me that this very typical of you?
-
The last time I did business with you, it took almost a year to get my complete payment. But like they say that one Na story for the gods.
-
Obviously, you are not very versed when it comes to contracts, if perhaps you were, you won't make unintelligent statements like "the stage manager concluded by your harassment that you were just being a passionate football fan and eventually let you go on stage with the celebrity friend you brought to the event".
-
If the stage manager just put me on stage as you claim in your 'body of lies', how come there is an email from you, involving the other party and I, just before we went on stage, with the 'orijo' of the questions we would be asked?
-
We had a contractual agreement, I could be sued for not showing up, and you will be, for not paying me, as there is no history of you at anytime calling off our agreement, verbally or through phone calls, texts or emails.
-
This would serve as a deterrent not just to you, but all other OAPs and celebrities.
If you choose for any reason, not to honour a contract, there are ways to go about it. You can't just decide not to show up, or not to pay for services, coming up with dodgy excuses and lies.
-
Kiibati, I'm not broke, this has nothing to do with money, it's the flaws in your character that I am bringing to light. ~FRZ. -

Attached are copies of our correspondence, up until the day of the event, via email and text messages."
