Chilling: How 8-year-old girl survived her abduction by policeman

A very chilling story reported on The Punch today disclosed how an eight-year-old girl, Amarachi Abakwam, escaped a grim fate in the hand of an alleged policeman attached to Police Mobile Force 22, Augustine Gbuchenge. The policeman was a neighbour to the girl’s family at Olufowobi Street, Ketu, Lagos.

Read the gripping story below:
The father of the victim, Patrick, said that on the fateful day he had been looking everywhere for his daughter until they discovered her under Gbuchenge’s bed.
Patrick said, “Last Thursday, I returned from work around 7.30pm and met my children and wife outside. There was power failure on that day so everywhere was dark. I asked after Amarachi but my wife said she was probably in our apartment sleeping.

“I was not satisfied with this explanation because my children don’t usually sleep early. When I went up, I did not see my daughter so we started asking around. Some little children in the compound then told me that Gbuchenge had called my daughter earlier to help him buy akara.
“I went to the policeman’s room to challenge him but he denied seeing my daughter so we continued looking everywhere. After sometime, the whole compound got involved in the search and all clues pointed to the policeman.”

T.B. Joshua Sees Vision Concerning Abducted Chibok School Girls, Says Divine Rescue Operation is on The Way!

Here is the powerful message Prophet T.B. Joshua passed on yesterday, Sunday 27th April 2014 in his church concerning the abducted schoolgirls in Borno State:

“They have to be released. That is the voice of God. I saw a vision where some of these girls have escaped and they are trying to find their way from the forest to the town. In the midnight, some of these girls ran away. The ones that are still under their custody – God said He will release them. This is the voice of God. God has spoken – these children must be released. We can’t wait to see them. God has marked them that nothing should happen.

How Former Edo Governor, Igbinedion, Lost N3.3 billion To Venezuelan Fraudsters (Part 1)

Lucky And His Friend James Ibori
 Nemesis may have finally caught up with ex-convict and former Governor of Edo State, Lucky Igbinedion, as he has lost over N3.3 billion to Venezuelan fraudsters, in a deal that bears all the marks of a classic 419 scam, PREMIUM TIMES can authoritatively reveal.

Court documents seen by PREMIUM TIMES also suggest that Mr. Igbinedion may be insolvent, as two US-based law firms have walked away from a $600 million lawsuit he instituted against the alleged mastermind and the Venezuelan state owned oil company, Petroleos De Venezuela S.A (PDVSA), over his inability to pay retainer as low as  N627,000.00 ($3,800.00).

Mr. Igbinedion plundered Edo State treasury for the eight years he was governor. He escaped jail after he reached a controversial plea bargain agreement with the Farida Waziri-led Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, which dropped all but one of the 191 charges of corruption and money laundering against him.

Fascinating read on the old wealthy and nouvous riche In Lagos: In Lagos, The 1% Takes Stock

A burgeoning wealthy class is settling into one of Africa’s fastest-growing cities, attracting designers, world-class architects and a growing creative community that seeks to preserve its culture through art and fashion.

 This is an interesting read culled from New York Times. Read and form your own conclusion

The Land Cruisers and Range Rovers began lining up on a steamy Sunday afternoon outside Tafawa Balewa Square long before sunset. The banking tycoon Otunba Subomi Balogun was hosting his 80th birthday party and nobody wanted to be late, and there was also the matter of inching past the press of beggars living in the square’s arcade. Once through a security line, women in gold headdresses and men in white robes disembarked. Balogun lives in a mansion modeled on the White House, furnished entirely in white and gold, and the invitation had asked guests to wear his favorite colors.

Guests sashayed through the tent doors into a scene of surreal opulence. At the far end of the tent, engulfed by servants, courtiers, national politicians and guards with wires in their ears, the celebrant perched beside his wife on a throne covered with white faux fur, his every move broadcast on flat-screens arrayed around the tent walls. From the throne, the founder of the First City Monument Bank (F.C.M.B.) could survey his 1,000 guests, acres of floral arrangements and goldfish ponds brought in for the occasion, and the legion of waiters ferrying Taittinger and Veuve Clicquot and steaming trays of traditional Nigerian stews and rice. Bands and dancers performed in succession, a professional actress emceed and business and blood royalty mingled with state governors and the archbishop of Lagos. Massive cakes, one a replica of Balogun’s columned white house, and one designed to match his white Rolls-Royce, were stationed in front of the head table.

Pope Francis 'Phones Divorced Woman' To Say She Can Receive Communion.

Pope Francis has phoned a divorced and remarried Catholic woman in Argentina to tell her that she could "safely receive Communion", according to an extraordinary report in La Stampa.

The woman's husband, writing on Facebook, claims that the Pope – introducing himself as "Father Bergoglio" – spoke to his wife, who'd been divorced before marrying him and told her that men or women who were divorced and received Communion weren't doing anything wrong. He apparently added that this matter is under discussion at the Vatican. (Quick health warning: given the complexity of this subject, we need much more clarity on what Francis reportedly said. I find it hard to believe that he would make such an unqualified statement.)

My Relationship With Willie Obiano will Remain Cordial – Former Governor, Peter Obi Speaks

Former governor of Anambra State, Mr Peter Obi says his relationship with current Governor of the State, Chief Willie Obiano will remain cordial. In this interview with some journalists, Obi said he is Obiano’s guarantor, and will always wish that he performs. He also spoke about life outside office, saying that nothing about him has changed.

Congratulations sir, on the successful conclusion of your two terms as Governor of Anambra State. 
While thanking me, I must also thank all those that collaborated and assisted us in all that we did, especially the Press.  Without you guys, it would have been difficult for us. I cherish the good relationship I enjoyed with you and I am inclined to say I was very fortunate to have you people in the State.

May we start by congratulating you on Anambra State coming first in WASSCE and NECO examinations in the country…
My attitude to news like this is that the new Governor should actually be congratulated. I have done my own part, he is now in charge. Henceforth, he should take credit for the successes and failures of the State. But our prayer is that Anambra State will never fail again.
