Court lifts ban on Obasanjo’s autobiography, ‘My Watch’

A Federal Capital Territory High Court in Apo, Abuja, has lifted an injunction barring former President Olusegun Obasanjo from publishing his autobiography, ‘My Watch’.
Justice Valentine Ashi ordered  ‎on the release of the books which had been  in the custody of the Nigerian Customs Service.

On December 8, 2014, Justice Ashi granted an ex parte application restraining Obasanjo from publishing the book pending the determination of the libel suit.
But Obasanjo went ahead to present the book to the public in Lagos, an act which the court held on December 10, 2014, as contemptuous.
Following the development the court ordered security and law enforcement agencies including ‎customs to confiscate the book anywhere it was found.

Actress Halima Abubakar Speaks On Killing Of Nigerians In South Africa

Just as some Nigerians are pained over the xenophobic treated being meted out on Nigerians living in South Africa by the country’s citizens, Nollywood actress-cum-producer, Halima Abubakar, is also hurt by the development.
The dark-skinned complexioned and hour-glass shaped actress expressed disgust over the incident, which is not happening the first time to Nigerians living in South Africa.
“I feel so sorry for the officers behind smiling at their fellow Africans on fire. Our values have depreciated. Where did our parents go wrong? Where is our heart? Seeing another suffering seem to make a lot of people happy; too many dining with the devils and thinking they about that life.
“This inhumane treatment must be stopped. We are Africans, and South Africans should know that first hand. I am very disappointed and saddened,” she said on Wednesday.

BUSTED: 4 smugglers excrete 171 wraps of cocaine in Lagos(Photos)

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency apprehended four suspected drug traffickers at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos for attempting to smuggle cocaine to Brazil.

According to reports by Punch, the suspects ─ Ejiofor Eliezer (46), Obah Francis (30), Akpa Sobuzochukwu (27) and 36-year-old Ike Okechukwu ─ excreted 171 wraps of drug that tested positive for cocaine.

Apparently, the discovery was made during the screening of passengers on board Qatar and Emirates airlines. Eliezer, who excreted 100 wraps of the drug, told investigators that poverty pushed him to commit the crime, adding that he had intended to use the expected proceed to fend for his family of four, “I live in Brazil, where I work in a supermarket and lived with my wife and four children. Life in Brazil is tough because I live from hand to mouth. It was poverty that made me to smuggle drugs. I took risk by swallowing 100 wraps of cocaine for N200,000 because of poverty.”

Francis said he took to drug trafficking to augment the meager salary he earned at a bakery in Brazil, “I am single and have been working in Brazil for two years. At present, I work in a bakery and my salary is meager. My plan was to give the drug to a friend in Dubai, but he did not come to collect the drug as planned. This was how I had to come to Nigeria with the drug. I blame my friend for my arrest because I would have made S15,000 (about N2.8m) from the deal.”
Sobuzochukwu, who holds a diploma in accounting, also said his poor salary as a cleaner forced him to ingest 26 wraps of cocaine for a fee of S1,500 (about N285,000).

Okechukwu said he did not think that he would be arrested. He said he had thought that the five wraps of cocaine he ingested would not be detected, “I regret my involvement in drug trafficking. I dropped out of school in Junior Secondary School class two and I work in a toy company in Brazil,” he added.

The NDLEA Chairman, Ahmadu Giade, said Brazil-Nigeria route was a high risk path to drug trafficking and urged officers to be vigilant, “The suspects will soon be charged to court,” Giade added.
