Girl moves to withdraw case against 2 Lekki “big boys” who gang-raped her

The girl who was allegedly drugged at a nightclub and gang-raped on February 3, 2019, by two dropouts of Babcock University, Don-Chima George and Olusegun Razak - in a hotel owned by George’s dad - wants the criminal suit filed against them withdrawn.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the complainant made the request during proceedings at an Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court on Thursday, via a “Letter of Withdrawal”.

In the letter, dated June 3, 2019, which was read in court by Justice Abiola Soladoye, the complainant attributed her decision to the “intervention of family members” and for the sake of her integrity.

However, Mr Akin George, a Deputy-Director in the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) and lead state prosecutor, however, opposed the complainant’s request.

“We do not have a directive from the office of the Attorney-General (AG). My lord, the Honourable AG is the complainant in this case. In every criminal matter, victims are naturally witnesses and as we speak, there is no AG in office due to the change in power.

We are also aware of the rules of the Administration of Criminal Justice Law (ACJL) which states that even the Court of Appeal cannot stay an ongoing proceeding.

Our office initiated this action in court and there has to be a closure one way or the other. My lord, we have submitted issues for the respective decisions of this court.

We will bring the witness to state her position before the court, while we continue proceedings and await directives from the AG’s office,” George said.

After listening to the submissions of the prosecution and defence, Justice Soladoye said that the court would continue with proceedings, and that bail would not be granted to the defendants because the court had already delivered a ruling denying them bail.

“However, so that these proceedings will not be an exercise in futility, a short adjournment will be taken, pending directives from the office of the AG,” she said.

The case was adjourned to June 18 for continuation of trial.

This administration has laid a foundation of taking bold steps in transforming our country and delivering our people from shackles of poverty.

First we will take steps in integrating the rural economy to national economic grade by extending access to input to rural farmers as well as credit to rural micro businesses and opening up many critical feeder roads.

Secondly, all small scale enterprises in towns and cities would share facilities currently available so that we can continue to encourage and support domestic production of basic goods to improve our lives,’’ he said.

Comic Actors In Nigeria Are Treated As Like Inferiors

Talented fast-rising Nollywood comic actor,  Inegbenebor Odion Steve aka "Alwayzhappi4u" has decried the lack of respect for comic acting in the industry.

In an interview with entertainment reporters over the weekend, "alwayzhappi4u" who has featured as a comic actor in movies like "Once Upon A Goal", "Benevolence" , "Drives" etc expresses dissapointed that many of his colleagues and Nigerians alike reason that the role of a comic actor in a movie is not important and so are comic actors. 

"It's sad really how some people reason in this parts of the world, in Hollywood every type of actor is giving due respect and serious payment because no form of acting is easy, but in Nollywood you still find people who treat you or look at you like a lesser being because you play a comic role. Comedy is a multi-million billion Naira industry and the treatment in Nollywood is one of the reasons some younger acts prefer to go into the stand up comedy style," the comic actor said. 

He continues; "one ofbthe role of a comic actor is to bring comic relief to a script and it takes a lot to make people relax and laugh. Unlike most other roles,  you cant even just make people laugh by going by a script,  you have to search deep withon and add some originality and ingenuity to the craft. But you will hear people say,  'he just a comic actor'.  The most annoying one is some so called big actors feeling too important because they are acting 'serious' roles.These are some challenges but some of us who have a passion for our  job can never be discouraged."

"Alwayzhappi4u" is also known for his viral comedy skits such as "Man Na Man, "How To Make Money Without Stress",  "Arm Neighbour", and more.

I Have Lost Faith In Nigeria's Democracy - Okorocha


Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has dismissed the governorship/state Assembly election in the state as a sham and a mockery of democracy, saying that he has lost confidence in the nation’s democracy.


Okorocha, while addressing a mammoth crowd of aggrieved youths from various parts of the state who paid him a solidarity visit at the Government House, Owerri, accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of brazen complicity in the conduct of the exercise.


He warned that the sham, if allowed to prevail, would stultify the nation’s democratic system and promote injustice and iniquity to the highest crescendo.


“It is obvious that INEC in Imo is not guaranteeing us free, fair and credible election because Uche Nwosu, the governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA), actually won the election but INEC criminally disbanded electoral officers of the Commission and introduced people from Abia College of Agriculture who arrived in the state at midnight.


They brought people they had been training for weeks in Anambra before the election.”

INEC Issues Certificate Of Return To Senators-elect


The Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC ) has urged Senators-elect to commence and conclude work on the review of the electoral legal framework early, ahead of the 2023 General Elections.


INEC chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, made the call on Thursday at a ceremony for the Issuance of Certificate of Return to Senators-elect at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.


Yakubu said that late conclusion of the review of the electoral law would affect the commission’s implementation of the framework.


He said that as a matter of urgency, the commission would begin work on post 2019 elections review and road map to 2023.


“There is a lot of work but very little time available. As a process governed by law, the success of election in Nigeria depends to a large extent on the electoral legal framework and most importantly, in ensuring adherence to the law.


“I want to assure you that we will continue to work with the National Assembly to review and strengthen our Electoral Law.


“But I want to appeal to the Senators-elect to please start work early and conclude work on the electoral framework in good time well ahead of the 2023 general elections.


“The tendency to delay electoral reform, particularly the review of the electoral framework, until it is too close to the elections, leaves the commission with little time to develop processes including regulations and guidelines, make required consultation with stakeholders, embark on effective voter education including sensitisation, train staff and organise deployment for the elections.


“I am glad that among the senators-elect are senators that we have worked very closely with and some of them have taken initiative or even sponsoring private member bills to advance the cause of electoral reform,” he said.


The chairman said that the commission looked forward to working very closely with the senators-elect in deepening the country’s electoral process.


He congratulated the lawmakers for their election victory to serve the nation.


Among those issued the certificate of return are: Sen. Ike Ekweremadu, Enugu West (PDP); Mohammed Sabo, Jigawa South West (APC); Philip Aduda, FCT(PDP) and Sen. Dino Malaiye Kogi West (PDP).


Others are Baba Kaita, Kastina North (APC); Omo-Agege Ovie Delta Central(APC); Ibrahim Gandam, Yobe North (APC); Abdul’Aziz Yari Zamfara North (APC); Kaura Yahaya, Zamfara West(APC) and Ifeanyi Uba, Anambra South (YPP).


The issuance of Certificate of return to the members of the House of Representatives will commence at 2 p.m
