Okada Riders Protest Alleged Extortion In Ogun Community

Okada Riders Protest Alleged Extortion In Ogun Community

Okada Riders Protest Alleged Extortion In Ogun Community
Commercial motorcyclists, popularly called Okada riders, on Friday, protested the alleged extortion of its members by the executives of its association at Ibafo, Ogun State.

Ayuba Olaniran, the spokesman for the riders, said the extortion has become unbearable as the union executives collect N500 daily from its members in the area.

He said, “The union collects N500 from us every day. We do not know what they do with this money. We don’t have any welfare neither do they protect us from area boys, so why are they collecting the money?”

Freshreporters News understand that Olaniran also bemoaned the arrest of its members by policemen from the Ibafo Police Station over a protest by its members on Thursday.

The Police (in Ibafo) arrested our members who protested yesterday and when we got there to secure their release, we were asked to pay N70,000.

“The union at Mowe, Magbaro and the other areas have stopped issuing tickets to Okada riders. We want an end to it too in Ibafo,” Olaniran said.

The spokesman said they want the release of their three colleagues in police custody unconditionally and an end to the levy.

Also speaking, Ahmed Ismail, a.k.a Small Awual, accused the police of conniving with the chairman of the Okada riders association, Bale Folurunsho, to make life unbearable for the riders in the area.

He said, “Bale and the policemen in Ibafo have agreed to torment Okada riders. They seize our bikes and arrest us over the non-payment of the levy. And when that happens, we pay N10,000 to get our bikes back.

“We have begged them to release our colleagues in detention but they said we should bring N70,000.

“Our chairman said our ordeal is not his business. We have contributed to paying for their release but they have not released our colleagues.

“We want people to help us.”

A source has reported that Dayo, the son of the immediate past Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, has been released.
A source has reported that Dayo, the son of the immediate past Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, has been released.  It could, however, not be confirmed if a ransom was paid or not.

It could, however, not be confirmed if a ransom was paid or not.

Dayo was released barely 24 hours after he was kidnapped at his farm located at Iroko near Fiditi in Afijio Local Government Area of Oyo State on Tuesday.

An aide to the minister, however, confirmed to our correspondent that the victim was released on Wednesday evening.

He said, “The minister’s son regained freedom just this evening and he is with his family in Ibadan. Details are still sketchy but we will issue a press release soon.”

The kidnappers reportedly wore facial masks to hide their identity and took away Dayo, escaping through the neighbouring village.

One of Dayo’s workers then raised the alarm and alerted the villagers who quickly sent local hunters after the kidnappers. The hunters found the car used by the kidnappers but neither Dayo nor any of the abductors were found.

The village head, Oniroko of Iroko made a phone call on a radio programme and alerted the public.

Police Commissioner in the state disclosed that Dayo’s domestic staff was among the three suspects arrested.

Fire Destroys Benue Biggest Market

Fire destroys Benue biggest market

A raging inferno has consumed a section of the main market in Markurdi, Benue State with about many shops and goods worth millions of naira destroyed, officials said Tuesday night.

There were no immediate reports of casualties, but first responders were said to have been mobilised to the scene.

Terver Akase, Benue government spokesperson, said the fire only touched a section of the market along George Akume Road at about 6:30 p.m.

The market, containing row of lock-up shops, was built by former Governor Gabriel Suswam to unclog the Makurdi city centre and easy trading.

The market served as a temporary shelter for victims of the devastating flood in 2017 and residents who fled their villages at the height of violence by herdsmen between late 2017 and early 2018.

Market People Are “frying Akara With Transformer Oil, Using Sniper On Dry Fish” – Scientist

Market People Are “frying Akara With Transformer Oil, Using Sniper On Dry Fish” – Scientist

Market people are “frying akara with transformer oil, using sniper on dry fish” – Scientist

Market women are “frying akara with transformer oil, using sniper on dry fish,” this are some of the shocking discoveries a Nigerian scientist shared on Twitter.

A Nigerian scientist revealed some shocking discoveries made during an unscheduled visit members of the Nigerian Food Sciences and Technology Institute paid to some markets in the Utako and Garki area in Abuja on Wednesday June 12th.
The scientist made some shocking revelations on what market people are now doing. He wrote;

No wonder we now have NIGERIAN YOUTHS & KIDS suffering Organ failure & Cancer
“Yesterday, scientists under the umbrella of the Nigerian Food Sciences and Technology Institute went to inspect markets in Abuja (Utako and Garki Markets). The things we discovered are heartbreaking:
People who fry akara, puff-puff, yam, meat, fish, etc., use transformer oil mixed with vegetables or groundnut oil to fry the stuff. Ariel detergent is used to ferment cassava for fufu, fish sellers spray sniper on dry fish to keep flies out.

In our abbatoir, tyres and used plastics are used to roast slaughtered animals which are sold in the market. Please avoid food cooked outside your home if you can.

We are veryyyyyyyyyy wicked to ourselves. We can see one of the reasons internal organ failure and CANCER have continued to increase even in young children and adults who live healthy still come down with all sorts of diseases.”
 NO… Buhari is the problem 🤷🏽‍♀️

Do You Know That Hepatitis B Is More Infectious Than Hiv [READ]

Do You Know That Hepatitis B Is More Infectious Than Hiv [READ]

Dr Bello Kumo, a consultant Gastroenterologist with Ahamadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Zaria, says Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) is more infectious than HIV.
Hepatitis B more infectious than HIV – Expert

Kumo stated this in a paper entitled “Face to Face with Hepatitis B: Cost and Burden”, presented at a public lecture organised by Kashim Ibrahim Fellows (KIF) in Kaduna on Thursday.

The consultant, who expressed concern that not many people have knowledge about the disease, added that multitude of patients were not identified early enough and managed.

He explained that the virus could be transmitted through contact with blood and body fluid, adding that it could infect nearly everyone that came into contact with anyone suffering from it through sharp objects and open wounds.

According to him, there is no known cure for chronic HBV, stressing that prevention remains the best option.

He added that “but to prevent, people must first know their status so that if they are negative, they can be vaccinated, which gives up to 95 per cent prevention.

“And those who tested positive can begin treatment and managing the virus to avoid its spread.”

Dr Muhammad Saleh, a medical doctor, described HBV as a silent killer, stressing the need for massive awareness campaign.

Saleh said in his lecture on “Hepatitis B: Finding the Missing Millions”, that not much would be achieved if  infected persons were not located and placed on treatment.

He noted that “HBV has been silently ravaging the country’s population. There is need for prevention through awareness, community sensitisation and scaling-up of
screening services.

Gov Nasir El-Rufa’i of Kaduna State commended KIF for organising the lecture, saying that the efforts would give people living with HBV a voice and raise the needed awareness on prevention.

El-Rufa’i, who was represented by his Deputy, Dr Hadiza Balarabe, said HBV had been neglected for long, overlooked by governments and misunderstood by the public.

He said “I commend KIF for supporting our government to draw attention to the scourge of the virus and ways to treat, manage and prevent its spread.

“Each activity we undertook takes us a step further toward eliminating the virus in our communities and raising awareness is a crucial window to treatment, management and prevention.

Active collaboration is central toward eliminating HBV, as such, we all have a part to play and dedicating a whole week to create awareness and draw attention of stakeholders
is truly a great step.”

The governor explained that the one-year KIF programme was initiated by Kaduna State Government to improve the capacity of young people and build a new crop of leaders for efficient public service in the country.

He said his administration would continue to provide opportunities for the youth to excel through people-oriented policies and programmes.

One of the KFI fellow, Michael Medubi, explained that the public lecture was part of a five-day KIF community service to educate and sensitise people on HBV.

Medubi said that the fellow had on Monday sensitised, counselled and provided testing services to students and staff of Kaduna Polytechnic and on Tuesday, trained 120 hairdressers and barbers on best practices.

On Wednesday, the foundation sensitised people at Sheikh Abubakar Gumi Central Market, Kaduna, on ways to prevent infection.”

Methodist Church Reverend Arrange His Own Kidnap, Demands N3m From Church Members

Methodist Church Reverend Arrange His Own Kidnap, Demands N3m From Church Members

Methodist church Reverend arrange his own kidnap, demands N3m from church members

A Methodist Church Reverend in Ekiti State, Adewuyi Adegoke has allegedly organised his own kidnap and demanded N3 million from church members.

Adegoke, who was arrested by the police had arranged with one Oluwadare Sunday to demand N3 million ransom from his congregation, as he reportedly went into hiding on Sunday evening while there were reports that he was abducted between Esa-Oke in Osun state and Aramoko-Ekiti in Ekiti.

It was gathered that his purported abductors later contacted the church members to demand the ransom, which they insisted must be paid latest by Thursday to prevent the reverend from being killed.

Detectives, however, intercepted the pastor’s accomplice, Sunday, who came to pick up the ransom at Okeyinmi area of Ado-Ekiti, after which he led them to the hotel where the pastor had been hiding.

According to TheCable, detectives reportedly tracked the suspects through the mobile phone that he was using to make contact with the church members.
28-year-old Man Who Lost His Family Members In Flood, Adopts Abandoned Infant He Found On The Street

28-year-old Man Who Lost His Family Members In Flood, Adopts Abandoned Infant He Found On The Street

  28-year-old man who lost his family members in devastating flood, adopts abandoned infant he found on the street
On a late night in March, 28-year-old Vietnamese, Lo Van Muoi, was leaving his office with his colleague Binh, when he heard a strange sound coming from a box on the street.

He thought it might be an abandoned cat, but it turned out to be a baby girl who seemed just a couple of days old.

The two men freaked out at seeing the abandoned baby. They waited at the spot for three hours but no one came for the child. Then they found a letter beside her asking for help to raise her since her parents could not afford it.

"She was cold, crying and sneezing... We decided to take her to the police," Binh, the colleague says.

The police told them if no one came for her, they could keep the baby. Seeing the letter, they knew her parents would not come.

They took the infant home, and in the middle of the night went around asking around for breast milk for her.

On the first day the two new fathers were worried and scared as the child kept crying the whole day. Lacking experience in caring for babies, they searched online for tips.


The baby finally stopped crying and slept well in Muoi’s arms. This was the moment he felt alive again after a horrific tragedy in 2017.

Muoi can never forget the call he got from his niece when he was at work one day.
"Uncle, please come home, your family has been killed."

A flood had swept away his father, brother, sister-in-law, and their two children, who had been living in Tram Tau District in the northern mountain province of Yen Bai. Since that time he was unable to sleep at night as the despair of losing his family continued to haunt him.

He frequently had nightmares, some of which made him delusional. Sometimes he would not know who he was or where. He came down with severe depression.

He focused on his work and could not even fall in love with anyone.

"At that time I did not know why I should live or why I should earn money. But I thought maybe my deceased family would not want me to suffer."

When the baby appeared in his life, he felt like living again. He nicknamed her Cabbage. Now on his balcony baby diapers can be seen hanging near his plants. With someone to care for, he is no longer depressed, but he is constantly busy searching the Internet for information about how to care for a baby, carry her, change diapers, sing lullabies, decorate a child’s room.

Though he has hired a babysitter, he prefers doing everything for Cabbage himself.
When Muoi carries her, she is quiet and cheerful. Her other father, Binh, is sometimes jealous of her love for Muoi.

Every week they still ask groups on social media for breast milk for her. Muoi and Binh have nearly completed the legal documentation to officially adopt Cabbage.

"Though the father seems to be clumsy, I believe they will take good care of the child," Da Thao, 36, a mother on a forum who donates breast milk.

"I was touched the night they came rushing asking for milk for their child. Women might do that, but I don't think many men will."

Muoi says: "Anyone in our situation would have taken the child in. I believe it is my destiny to suffer so badly and love so hard.

"I just hope one day Cabbage can say ‘dad’," he says with a smile.

How My 5-Month-Old Baby Was Resurrected Through Prayers – Nigerian Lady

How My 5-Month-Old Baby Was Resurrected Through Prayers – Nigerian Lady

How My 5-Month-Old Baby Was Resurrected Through Prayers, says Nigerian Lady

A Nigerian lady whose name is Mrs Emike Thelma Okeke has taken to the micro-blogging site, facebook to recall and rejoice over how her dead baby was miraculously resurrected after she went under fervent prayers.

In the post she drop narrated on how the doctor and nurses at the hospital had confirmed the baby dead and already given up on every chance of her coming back to life.

Patiently read her testimony below:

MY TESTIMONY IS ONE YEAR TODAY(June 7th 2019).
BELOVED, GOD STILL RAISES THE DEAD.
“You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness”.Psalm 30:11.
Often times, testimonies becomes too heavy for us to share; but when it’s a bad news, it goes viral. This one, I must testify. I must let the whole world know that this God has not changed. I must confess that the power of resurrection is REAL & still very much @ work. I must testify what this Great God has done for my family.

On the 5th of June 2018, my little princess who was 5months and 2wks old then, had fever, & was stooling @ the same time. She was taken to the hospital the next day(6th) where she was admitted.

As though the sickness was getting worse through the night, the drip was dripping and stopping intermittently. Little did I know it was her organs failing gradually. In the afternoon the next day, being 7TH OF JUNE 2018(the D day), @ about 3pm, while sitting beside her waiting for the nurse to come and check the drip which had stopped again, I heard a voice ” Pray”. I looked around the ward wondering whose voice it was, and the voice repeated “pray”. @ that point, I knew the Lord was talking to me.
So I said ” thank you Jesus, I will pray, but let me wait for the nurse to finish attending to the drip because I wouldn’t want her to interrupt my prayers”.

 This time, the voice came in a little harsh tune “I’m asking you to pray, and you are here giving excuses”.I quickly apologized & started praying. I was still praying when the nurse came in, so I concluded and watched her do her job; but the drip still did not work(NB. the vein /drip line did not tissue, nor was there any medical reason as to why the drip stopped).
When the nurse went out to get more equipment, the Lord spoke to me again saying “pray, this is beyond what you can see”.

Then I looked up to heaven and said “Lord, I do not know what the problem is, but God, take control; and immediately the drip started running. Before I could touch the drip regulator, the nurse returned and did it herself.
While she was doing the needful, without any reason, I carried my baby and then noticed she was having slight fever. So I asked the nurse to check her temperature. Before I could finish speaking, my baby started stretching and struggling for her life. Right in my arms, I helplessly watched my daughter battling for life and in very few seconds she closed her eyes unto death. I thought I was dreaming, but then, the nurse took her from me, and I saw the doctors and nurses running helter skelter. I watched the medical team try their best to revive her, all to no avail.

Then the worse dawned on me when they placed her on oxygen which yet confirmed the negative. At that very minute, I felt lactation, and a tiny voice whispered, “she just crossed over”, and I responded ” No way”! Immediately, I ran back to her lifeless body almost pushing down the doctors and nurses and started prophesying to her. I was calling her name, begging her to come & suck, and I pleaded with the doctors and nurses to help me call her back that my breast milk was running.

The nurses with tears in their eyes tried to console me, and pleaded with me to go out and stay away from the dead baby. Then it dawned on me that it was a reality. My spirit immediately became very angry and I shouted, “NO WAY, THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE”. I was so furious, and the only thing that came to my mind was ” if she leaves here, she is going back to heaven. Pray and tell God to send her back”.
With these words in my heart, I became confident and needed someone who could join me in faith to pray. I thought of my husband, my mum, or my sister but somehow, I felt these persons might become too emotional for what my spirit needed. So I quickly called my God mother, Prophetess Ogochukwu Ufomadu, told her the situation, and ended the call before she could even speak.

As I stepped out of the ward, I saw other women/mothers who out of fear ran out of the ward with their sick babies carrying their children. Then the reality hit my head again. Some of those women were crying, and others were praying.
But because I didn’t want to hear cry at that point in time, I just moved to a quiet corner and started praying. With so much confidence in my heart, I prayed to God and reminded him of his promises to me in which burying my child isn’t part of it.

I reminded God of all his promises which I’ve read in my bible, and those I’ve heard. In all these promises, I reminded this faithful God whom my bible tells me in Heb 6:18 ” that by two immutable things God cannot lie”, and because he said I shall not die, my daughter shall not die(PSA. 118:17).
I reminded Him who said in Matt 24:35 that ” heaven and earth will pass away, but his word will remain”, that his word promised me,in John10:10 ” that I may have life, even more abundantly”.

I told God so many things. I remember telling Jesus Christ of his finished work on the cross which had paid the debt for premature death in my life and family (John 19:30″It is finished”).
I reminded the God of all flesh whom nothing takes unawares that He saw this coming and asked me to pray earlier and that I know His ears are not deaf to hear me(Ish 59:1). While I was praying, I felt a cooled wind of peace on my head going into my heart. Then I heard “start calling her back, call her name”.

I obeyed and started calling her; “Chikambelu Peniel Emike please come back to me. Please come back to mummy, Kambel please come back to daddy and Chimkasimma your brother; we love you so much and cannot afford to loose you. Oh’ my heart pierced a million times when I told her how I cannot answer Kasimma if he should ask me mummy, where is my baby Kambel?.

I called her name so many times and told her all my heart could interpret @ that moment. I called my princess and promised her all I could think of. I kept calling her name, and turning my promises and plea into prayer, when the voice whispered again “be thankful, God is with you”. So I started praising God, and was still begging him for a miracle.
In less than 5mins, a nurse screamed ” Mrs. Emike, Mrs. Emike, come, come, Mrs. Emike come.

You could imagine my race at that point. As I ran into the ward, I heard a baby’s voice crying and when I looked up, it was my Chikambelu Peniel Emike crying.
God came down in his GLORY and called her MIRACLE. Today, her name is Chikambelu Miracle-Peniel Emike.The doctors and nurses were all amazed, and so was everyone around. More people came from different places to see the MIRACLE WORK OF GOD.
BELOVED, GOD RESTORED MY BABY, HE RESTORED MY JOY AND HAPPINESS. GOD RESTORED MY HOPE AND TRUST IN HIM, HE WILL RESTORE YOUR JOY AND HOPE AGAIN.
JUST KEEP THE FAITH ALIVE AND NEVER GIVE UP, GOD HAS NOT CHANGED.
GOD IS NOT DEAD, HE IS STILL THE ALMIGHTY

JUTH Performs First Brain Surgery Using Drilling Machine

JUTH Performs First Brain Surgery Using Drilling Machine

The Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH), at the weekend undertook its first surgery to remove brain tumor using a machine that drills the skull bone to gain access to the tumor.
JUTH Performs First Brain Surgery Using Drilling Machine
“It is the first Trans-labyrinthine approach to a posterior fossa tumor. We used the C-Arm machine to drill the skull bone so as to see what is behind even while facing the front of the head.
“In the past, we had to open the brain which was always risky and led to deaths because the brain is delicate,’’ Dr Origoya Peter Binitie, the lead neurosurgeon in the operation in Jos  told The News Agency of Nigeria

He said that the tumor had been in the woman for three years before the surgery.

“Half of her face was affected and she could not hear with the ear affected,’’ he explained, adding that the operation was a combined effort by neurosurgeons, Ear-Nose-Throats (ENT), surgeons and the Anaesthetists.

Binitie, who described tumor as an abnormal growth of tissue largely outside the brain stem, said that the new approach helps the surgeons to navigate around the head to see all sides at the same time.

In the past, we used X-rays to ascertain the position of every part of the head; that involved moving the X-ray machine up and down to, and from, the theatre.

“That process usually takes a longer time and will not give us the position of a bone or the tissue in real time. But with the new machine, it is very quick and saves more than two hours.

“With the new device, we can easily get the picture in motion. While the X-ray is static and one must wait for results, the new device is a kind of video where one can see the picture in motion, instead of static motion.

“The new device is also more accurate, can tell you exactly where you are and saves cost because you spend less time on anaesthesia which minimise the money you pay for that particular service.

“We can also ease our job by taking the picture up, down, front, back or sideways,’’ he explained.

Binitie, first neurosurgeon in northern Nigeria, who had been in service since 1974, said that the cost of such operation was “around N300,000 in JUTH’’.

But it costs several millions of naira in other hospitals and even more when done outside Nigeria,’’ he said.

The expert said that there were a total of 90 neurosurgeons in the country, adding that more were being trained to meet rising demands.

JUTH is one of the few centres training neurosurgeons in Nigeria. Six are currently being trained and are at various stages of the programme,’’ he said.

Binitie commended the management of JUTH for its efforts to improve services through acquiring modern equipment like C-Arm that would ease surgery and enable the hospital break new grounds.

Speaking on the C-Arm device, Prof. Edmund Banwat, Chief Medical Director of JUTH, said that it cost N32 million, adding that more equipment were being acquired to improve service delivery and break new grounds.

Banwat said that a German NGO, Christofell.Blindmission (CBM), recently donated an operating microscope to be used by the ophthalmology (eye) department.

He said that the hospital was undertaking a free eye surgery for children which would end in September, adding that children requiring glasses would equally receive them.

Parents should take advantage of this opportunity to correct any defect in the eyes of their children,’’ he told NAN.

Banwat, however, decried the poor funding of teaching hospitals, saying that much funds were required to purchase equipment, meet infrastructure needs, as well as for training and research.

We have several needs and want to improve services and break new grounds, but we cannot meet these needs with the budget we currently run.

“What we have is mostly an envelope system; what comes out of the appropriation is not encouraging at all.

“With more funds, we can operate optimally and provide quality service. The medical sector keeps moving and changing, with new grounds broken every day. We cannot afford to be left behind,’’ he said.

Getting a job wasn't easy for me. I did so many entrepreneurial jobs to survive till I was able to get a job with a mobile distribution company.

My work place is at opebi ikeja, while my residence was at idimu egbeda. So transmuting from idimu to opebi was not really convenient because of traffic

I contacted an agent online who also directed me to another agent, Mr friday Umeh through whom i was able to get one room self contain at opebi. He is also the caretaker of the building. He told me the owner of the bungalow is one Mrs Julie Nkemdirim ORUCHE who is based in USA.
I asked to speak with her he obliged. I also did video calls with her.
I paid the sum of 300 hundred thousand on the 25th of march 2019 to the caretakers GtB account.
I also renovated the toilet, kitchen and the room window. I fixed new tiles and repaired the plumbing.
On Friday, 17th of may 2019 my neighbour called me from work that our house is being demolished.
I rushed down and behold, Lagos state demolition task force has already started demolished the building. I rushed in to see if i can be able to pick few things, but the dust was too much for my lungs ...I started choking and unable to breath ran out where I had asthmatic attack.
I became unconscious and was rushed to Lagos state emergency and accident unit, ojota.
As of now, I can't find most of my properties, my valuables especially my credentials.
This building has been marked for demolition for a while but the Landlady and caretaker repainted the building and gave it out for rent to Us.

Islamic Officials Disguise As Waiters To Catch Muslims Not Fasting To Be Punished

Islamic Officials Disguise As Waiters To Catch Muslims Not Fasting To Be Punished

Islamic officials disguise as waiters to catch Muslims not fasting and offenders can be punished with up to 6 months in jail
It has been reported that some Malaysian officials have disguised as waiters in restaurants to catch Muslims who are not participating in the on-going Ramadan fast.

32 enforcement officers in the Malaysian district of Segamat are dressing up as cooks and waiters to catch Muslims who choose to eat during the holy month of Ramadan, the New Straits Times newspaper reported on Thursday.

Freshreporters News understood that some department’s officers were selected from the ranks to carry out task as a tea-brewers and noodle chefs being Ramadan Police.

These officials will be placed at 185 food premises where they will identify Muslims who aren't fasting, snap a photo of them, and send it to the local religious affairs department.

Segamat Municipal Council president Mohamad Masni Wakiman told the New Straits Times: "We have specially selected enforcement officers who are dark skinned for the undercover job,"

It was further gathered that dark skinned officials were chosen because their cover will be more convincing since many restaurant staff are migrants workers.


Wakiman added: "They sound convincing when they speak in Indonesian and Pakistani lingo, so that customers will believe they are really hired to cook and serve meals and take menu orders."

If a Muslim is caught breaking the fast by one of the officers, he or she might face a fine of up to $329 or up to six month detention or both.
