Drunk policemen brutalize young girl and brother in Lagos lailasnews

The lady identified as Uchenna Becky Ochulo took to her Twitter page to write about their encounter with the policemen at a checkpoint in Lagos.

See what she wrote below;

I was seeing my boyfriend Seun off to the airport with his little sister Dami and my cousin Oliver, then we were stopped at a check point, can I see what is in your boot, sure why not.

The Driver stepped out of the car, to help open the boot and then the officer asked all of us to step out of the vehicle for a random search, I just knew that something was off with that officer, So….

I immediately turn on voice recorder on my phone and the the police officer started ranting, I should call whoever I want to call that the IG of police doesn’t stay in the checkpoints that they are in charge, and the I stepped in front of him and asked him,

To search me, so many times and then he said he’ll take us to his office because I have no respect for an elderly man, next minute he called some other officers, one of which was very drunk, Dami started begging them to let her brother go so he won’t miss his flight.

Next thing you know the drunk officer slapped Dami, & another was hitting Oliver with a Gun, the whole thing was alarming Seun charged towards the officer that hit his sister out of anger, because he had been calm the whole time, and the other police officers kept on hitting him,

Then that same police officer that slapped Dami spat on her face and kept on saying there is nothing she can do and there’s nothing anyone of us can do. So Seun begged to be taken to the station.

We got into the car, and a police officer took us to the Mafoluku Police station,
Seun, Dami and Oliver were Assaulted and when we got to the station a group of officers started pleading and apologizing for the unruly act of the officers at the checkpoint.

I have a voice record of everything that happened as it all began and as we were begged for the act of the Drunk & Unruly Police officers and I will not stop until they are all brought to justice.


Vandals cart away Kanu Nwankwo’s medals, trophies, plaques and other valuables in Lagos

Vandals cart away Kanu Nwankwo’s medals, trophies, plaques and other valuables in Lagos

Former Super Eagles striker, Nwankwo Kanu just revealed how suspected vandals invaded his Hardley Apartments situated along Waziri Ibrahim Crescent on Victoria Island, and made away with his football medals, trophies, plaques and other valuable items.

The hotel has been sealed up since 2015 sequel to an alleged default in transaction between it and Skye Bank (now Polaris Bank), leading to series of litigation that is still pending at the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos. The last hearing came up in November last year after which the case was adjourned till 31 January 2019.

However, a shocked Kanu, who was in London for the Yuletide, learnt from relatives and business associates in Nigeria last week that the Apartments, with registration number 509102, had been occupied by some authorized persons who had also commenced renovation of the facility in disregard of the seal order and litigation, forcing him to arrive in Nigeria over the weekend to verify the claims.

“It was a rude shock to me,” Kanu, who fought back tears at what the hitherto sprawling facility had become since the renovation started, told TheCable. I almost couldn’t recognise the hotel as belonging to me anymore. This is the saddest day of my life as I cannot understand why this happen to me when the matter has yet to be settled in court.

“All the medals I have earned, in addition to the Olympic torch that I cherished are all gone and I don’t even know who to ask for all these prized assets. This is unacceptable in all ramifications. I have not been served any notice that I have lost this property and until I am served the notice, it remains my legal property,” the former Super Eagles’ captain said.

“Even cars and buses belonging to the hotel can no longer be found and I wonder where they could have been moved to without my knowledge,” Kanu further said, even as he lamented how the four-year seal of the facility had adversely affected treatment for numerous patients that his Kanu Heart Foundation planned to rescue from their ailment.

“We have used proceeds from the hotel business to effect treatment for the patients over the years and now we are being forced to seek funds elsewhere, a situation that has stalled the treatment considerably especially since 2016. During my service to this country in football up to year 2000, I made many Nigerians happy. I don’t think I deserve this sadness in retirement.”

Barcelona deny contact with Neymar's father lailasnews

Reports have emerged in recent days that the player’s father and agent Neymar Santos Sr. reached out to Bartomeu, with his son hoping to return to Camp Nou.

Neymar moved from Barca to PSG in the summer of 2017 in a world-record €222 million deal.

The Brazil star helped PSG to a domestic treble in 2017-18, but has been consistently followed by reports that he is unhappy in the French capital.

Barca’s great rivals Real Madrid have also been linked with a shock move for the 26-year-old.

In a press conference on Tuesday, Barcelona spokesman Josep Vives denied that any conversations have taken place between Bartomeu and Neymar’s father.

“That’s not correct,” Vives said when asked about the purported phone conversations.

“But we don’t speak about calls or conversations made in the private aspect,” Vives added. “Neymar is a great player but he has a contract with PSG and there’s not anything else to add.

“We never speak about players with a contract with other clubs and Neymar is one of them. He took a legitimate decision to leave, a decision which we didn’t share, and there’s not much more to say.

“He has a contract and many obligations with PSG; we are only thinking about the great players we have right now.”


Chrissy Teigen Talks Body Image, Negative Social Media Comments & More As She Covers Good Housekeeping‘s February 2019 Issue

Model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen is on the cover Good Housekeeping’s 2019 February Issue.

In the issue, the 33-year-old mum of two talks about accepting her body, her fights with John Legend, negative social media comments and more.

Read excerpts below.

On her fights with John Legend:

“A big thing that helps us is the two different ways that we fight. I get very passionate, I get very loud, and he’s very much a diffuser. But in the end, we’re both apologizers; we don’t like to dwell on the same thing.”

On negative social media comments:

“I have moods like anybody else. Some days, I’ll wake up and I’ll read something and it’ll totally not affect me. But if I read that same thing the next day—after a night of no sleep and a really rough day with Luna—it naturally gets to you because you’re in a shittier mood. If I wake up, and I’m like, “Ugh, I feel bloated, I haven’t worked out for a few days” and I read something about my body? That’s the day that I’m gonna speak up. It’s just crazy how judgmental people can be.”

On accepting her body today:

“I think, in a way, we’ve forgotten what a regular body looks like. There are people out there who are struggling and I’m struggling, and it’s okay to come to terms with that being okay, to realize that it’s gonna be a bit of a journey. It’s all about trying to be happy with myself. Because I’m not blind: I see my body, I see the difference in shape, I see that I gained weight. But I also see with those same eyes that I have a beautiful baby boy, and this little girl that’s relentless and amazing, and I am very happy. This is a new thing that I can change within my mind, that I don’t have to be swimsuit model anymore. I get to be a mommy, and I get to cook, and I get to meet incredible people, and I’m happy to be going through this transition.”

Dismissed policeman caught stealing motorcycles in Lagos state lailasnews

PUNCH Metro gathered that the man, who was dismissed from service in 2014, operated under the guise of being an active policeman to deceive his victims.

One of the victims, Chinda Ayuba, said he agreed to release his motorcycle to Zubairu because he believed that he was a policeman.

He stated;

“A man stopped my motorcycle and introduced himself as a policeman. He told me to take him to Ijora from the Maroko area of Lagos, and I told him that I could not go there. He begged me to help him and promised that no policeman would arrest me.

“While on our way, he saw two boys and asked me to stop. He asked the boys what happened and they explained that some policemen had seized their motorcycles. He asked the boys to give him N1,000 each in order to assist them to get their motorcycles back. He then collected my motorcycle and asked me to wait with the two boys. I waited till sunset but he did not come back with my motorcycle.”

Another victim, Abdulmalik Isah, said Zubairu identified himself as a mobile policeman and took him to the Maroko Police Station where his motorcycle was stolen.

The 26-year-old stated,

“He claimed to be a mobile policeman and made me to take him to the Maroko Police Station. On getting there, he asked me to follow him inside, which I did.

“He told me to wait for him at the station that he wanted to buy something outside. After some time, I decided to come out to check my motorcycle and I could not find it where it was parked. I waited from 2pm till 6pm before I made a report at the police station.”

Isah added that Zubairu was apprehended and handed over to the police when he tried to steal another motorcycle from a rider in his area.

The suspect however, said he went into stealing as a means of livelihood after he was dismissed from the police force.

The suspect stated,

“I was recruited to the Nigeria Police Force in 2001 and I was later mobilised to the Mopol 9 Squadron in Kano State. In 2014, I killed a man while on duty and I was dismissed. I was charged to court for murder and while I was awaiting trial in prison, the family of the deceased decided to withdraw the case from the court in 2017.

“I came to Lagos in August 2018 and because I didn’t have a means of livelihood, I started stealing and re-selling motorcycles.

“I have stolen about four motorcycles and I sell the motorcycles to one Yerima at Tin Can, Apapa, Lagos. I only get to see Yerima between 3.30am and 4.30am, because he is always on night duty.”

Zubairu was subsequently arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court on two counts of stealing.[
