The rapper said.........

 'I was kidnapped by sars lastnight. Two mins away from my house, taken to lagos island and made to exhaust my atm allowance or i would be killed and no one would know'.

Not by armed robbers. But when u are robbed and they are armed fully, 5 ak-47's. Blows to the head and bundled into a vehicle.

Isn't it the same thing. And then after you will now tell me our government is working. Things are in place. Bla bla. Let me tell u now straight up. I dont care who you are, if you are rolling solo in this town and sars get you. Day or night. If they get ur phone. Its over for you.

They dont have names or numbers on their uniforms. They literally said to me "na you burn this our hilux here yesterday abii". Acting like they didnt know who I was and were gonna rope me in anything they felt or do with me what they would. After collecting all the money in lagos island they start laughing telling me i'm too stubborn that when will i introduce them to don jazzy. Oh so u know me. One even bragged about working alot with wazobiafm.

Thanx for that info at least now i have a point to start my own investigation. I could've been shot and left in the dark space on that dark road. No ID no phone. Who would ID me. Who would be looking for me for days?

Afterall my people saw me enter uber heading home. On the island. Shey i'm safe. Good morning. Its a good day to be alive. I don't even know what hashtag to put sef. Its ok. I recorded a video initially from when I got home last night but it was too long and it made me cry again. So i just said lemme just yan straight no need for in the moment.

Just the facts. We are not safe. End of story. Know as u dey take move.

“It further revealed that the fraudster used the proceeds from crimes on flamboyant lifestyles, spending lavishly on exotic drinks, women and to acquire different properties and others.

“Operatives were dispatched to Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State to carry out surveillance on the activities of the scammers as contained in the intelligence and this was verified to be true.

“Search was executed at the said premises and incriminating items such as phones,laptops, and some other items were recovered during the process of search.

Hayatudeen said that Olumide, in his statement admitted that he started internet scam three months ago and that was his first attempt.

Cops Killing: Panel Report Delaying Soldiers’ Trial

Cops Killing: Panel Report Delaying Soldiers’ Trial

Cops Killing: Panel Report Delaying Soldiers’ Trial
The Nigerian Police Force
It's no more news that three policemen were murdered in Ibi, Taraba State. It was earlier reported that President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari ordered the investigation of the killing, it's now 21days the Defence Headquarters’ Joint Investigative Panel which was constituted to carry this out has failed to probe the necessary personalities involved.


FreshReporters News gathered that Military sources said the failure of the panel to submit its report to the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen Abayomi Olonisakin, was delaying the trial of the army officer, Captain Tijjani Balarabe, and soldiers, who had been in military detention since the first week of August.

A top military source noted that the panel, which was inaugurated on August 9, was supposed to submit its report today (Friday), adding that the trial of culpable army personnel might not begin until the first week of September.

The DHQ joint panel, headed by Rear Admiral Ibikunle Olaiya, sat for five days at the Defence Intelligence Agency, Abuja, during which it grilled soldiers, policemen, civilians and the re-arrested Taraba kidnap kingpin, Hamisu Wadume.

Our correspondent had reported on Monday that the indicted army personnel would be moved to the 3 Division headquarters, Jos, Plateau State, for a possible General Court Martial.

The panel extended its interrogations to officers at the Nigerian Army 23 Brigade in Yola, Adamawa State, which controls 93 Battalion, Takum, Taraba State, who are alleged to have issued instructions to the Commanding Officer of the unit in Ibi, Captain Balarabe.

A competent source said the failure of the panel to turn in its report during the week would slow down the trial of the army officer and soldiers, adding that the panel was dragging on the matter.

He said, “All eyes are on the panel’s report because it will determine the next line of military action. It will determine the start of trial of the army officer and soldiers who have been in detention. The panel’s report is dragging and it is raising concerns.
