Justice C.O Agbaza of the Federal high court, sitting in Jabi Abuja, on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, sentenced and convicted one Kehinde Bello, to 70 years imprisonment for obtaining by false pretence and forgery.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had arraigned the convict for trial on 10-count charge bordering on Advance Fee Fraud, forgery and conspiracy.

Bello’s problem started in 2008, through a petition by Enatto-Nana Aisha to the EFCC, complaining of the convict, who approached her to pay for of a landed property in Abuja, claiming to be a staff of the Federal Capital Development Authority, FCDA. Being convinced of the transaction, she parted with N28 million, being initial deposit to the convict.

But the convict disappeared without letter of allocation, as he had promised.

Working on the petition, the operatives of the EFCC arrested the convict and charged him to court in 2014, on a 10 count charge of conspiracy, obtaining by false pretence and forgery.

Investigation revealed that Bello’s other accomplices: Gabriel Adole Simon (now at large) and James Ogar (still at large) obtained N28, 000.000.00 (Twenty Eight Million Naira) only from their victim Aisha, under the false pretence that the money was for re-certification and re-issuance of two plots of land in the Maitama area of Abuja, the FCT.

Investigation by the EFCC operatives further indicated that the convict used several other forged documents among them are the Federal Capital Territory Administration, Offer Of Terms Grant/ Conveyance Of Approval With Ref No: MFCT/LA/KN.3071, dated March 20, 2002 in the name of one Abubakar M. Laden and Abuja Geographic Information Systems, Recertification And Re-Issuance of C of O with file NO: KT 11284 dated December 23, 2008 in the name of one Haruna Yunusa, to defraud the complainant.

Count one of the charge reads: “That you Kehinde Bello, Gabriel Adole Simon (now at large) and James Ogar (still at large) sometimes in 2008 within the jurisdiction of High Court of the Federal Capital Territory did conspire among yourselves to commit an unlawful act to wit: obtaining money by false pretense and thereby committed an offence contrary to section 8(a) and punishable under section 1(3) of the Advance Fee Fraud and other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2006”.

While the second count reads: “That you Kehinde Bello, Gabriel Adole Simon sometime in 2008 with the Jurisdiction of the High court of the Federal Capital territory with intent to defraud obtained the aggregate sum of N28,000,000.00 (Twenty Eight Million Naira) only from one Enatto- Nana Aisha by false pretense purportedly for the recertification and reissuance of two plots of land described as file number: KT11284 in the name of Haruna Yunusa with plot number 4085 Cadestral Zone AO5 of Maitama dated 09/04/2002 and file number KN13063 in the name of Abubakar Ladan, with plot number cadastral Zone AO6 of Maitama date  20/03/2002 respectively for her which pretence you knew to be false and there by committed an offence contrary to section 1(1)(a) of advance Fee Fraud and other Fraud Related Offences Act 2006 and punishable under section 1(3) of the same ACT”.

At the resumed hearing on Wednesday, 10 April, the prosecution counsel, Chioma Okongwu, after proving her case beyond reasonable doubt closed her case against the accused. The accused pleaded ‘guilty’ on all the 10 count charge.

Justice Agbaza, thereafter, found Bello guilty on the 10-count charge and convicted him to seven years imprisonment on each of the count. The sentence, according to the judge, is to run concurrently.

Prince Harry & Meghan planning to move to Africa after arrival of their baby

Published

on

 

Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, could be planning to move to Africa after the upcoming birth of their first child, according to reports in British newspaper The Sunday Times.

The royal couple could move abroad for two or three years as part of a major international role being devised by the royal family’s courtiers, the paper reports, with Africa raised as a potential destination.

According to the report, David Manning, the former British ambassador to the US and special adviser on international affairs to Prince Harry has proposed a plan for the pair to take on a more international position that could build on their work for the Commonwealth.

A decision is not expected until 2020, the paper says.

That time frame would allow them to start raising their child at their home, Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.

“Any future plans for The Duke & Duchess are speculative at his stage. No decisions have been taken about future roles,” a Buckingham Palace spokesperson told CNN.

There are 19 Commonwealth nations in Africa, including South Africa, Nigeria, Uganda and Ghana. The couple have already visited North Africa on an official royal engagement, touring Morocco in February.

CCTV captures Nanny beating ailing 2-yr-old Baby with Carpet Brush for vomiting on Sofa

Published

A woman in Kenya has shared a CCTV footage of her house help beating her ailing 2-year-old daughter with a carpet brush because she vomited on the sofa.

Read below:

“On this video, this is my daughter Amani,she is 2 and 1/2 years old and the other is Praxides Lumiti Vicheti, the nanny from hell. On 12th March 2019, i saw a footage from my CCTV as my daughter was being brutally beaten with a carpet brush simply because she had vomitted on the Sofa.

First, my daughter was sick, the previous day we were from hospital and sadly my daughter was diagnosed with ulcers(God knows how long this torture had been happening for my daughter to be so stressed).

We rushed back home and quickly fired the nanny without looking at the full footage. We should have called the police! I know!!!!!I swear its always hard to explain the decisions we make while on panic mode.

Finally after the lady left we reviewed the footage and my heart still breaks when i see what my daughter went through. So we decided to just use legal means to get justice for our daughter. We reported the matter and finally began the journey to tracking and arresting her.

We finally arrested her in parklands where she was working( thank you Viola Ayoo for pretending you knew nothing till we came with the police). On arresting her, we came to know that a few days after leaving my house she had a job at Phenom Estate and later on left for Parklands. This DMs have a huge demand.

She was taken to court and is finally out on bond but i wouldn’t be suprised if she is working for another lady who knows nothing about the devil she welcomed to her home.

This is my point, what ever happened to my daughter is irreversible and hopefully she will be well helthwise. Its my sole duty to ensure that no other child goes through this or even worse.
Kindly share and save a child from this monster nannies.”

*She is out on bond stay woke my sisters!!!
