wonder what they stand to gain.
Yoruba actress Yetunde Akilapa who has
been branded a thief due to a strange
voice she claims pushes her to steal, has
gone for deliverance twice now but the
spirit is still very much acting in her. Just
months after she was beaten mercilessly
by a mob in the Magodo area of Lagos for
finding a way into a man's flat with the
help of a master key, Yetunde has once
again been disgraced at Yaba where she
was employed as a makeup apprentice.
The lady who's teaching her makeup was
said to have just stocked her shop with
iphones, laptops and other gadgets she
newly brought into the country. At the
close of day, everybody went home, but
Yetunde came back later at night with a
SHOCKER: Her sister, Bose Akilapa who is
so upset about her sister's dilemma, said
their mother is behind Yetunde's
misfortune because she once cursed her.
Angry Bose is said to have gone to call her
mother names asking her to reverse the
curse and in-between the argument she
tore her mother's clothes.
...she gained entrance into the store and
took away some iphones, ipads and
laptops before someone spotted her. She
was accosted and arrested. Again, she
blamed it on the strange speaking in her
The shop owner who was later called
rushed to the scene, called in the police
who whisked her away. Two days after,
Yetunde was released and this made the
lady upset. She called in another set of
policemen and they've re-arrested the
troubled actress. She's in custody waiting
to be charged to court.
What a life! I pray the good Lord help her

state are to be rehabilitated.They were
arrested on June 15.The Commissioner of
Police, Mohammed Katsina, told News
Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan
Some of the kid robbers, aged between 12
and 14, conspired and invaded a house
around the Challenge Area of Ibadan,
where they stole the sum of N11,000.
"Based on information, the Anti-Robbery
Squad of the command was sent out
immediately and they were surprised to
see kids of 12 and 14 years of age coming
out to make confessional statements,"
Katsina, who also expressed pity on the
plight of the kids, explained that they
voluntarily narrated to the police details
about their activities. He lamented that
the involvement of the kids in robbery
activities could be attributed to lack of
parental care and poverty.
"Most of these children are from broken
homes and I wish parents can learn from
the plight of these kids and take proper
care of their children.
"One thing that keeps disturbing me is
the voluntary narration and sincerity of
the kids. They have no shelter of any sort
and to them, their future starts and ends
on the bridge. "Their only means of
livelihood is to savage innocent members
of the public, be involved in pick
pocketing, robbery and related criminal
activities," he said. Katsina noted that 90
per cent of the kids arrested were not
residents or indigenes of Oyo State.
"Some of them are from Benin Republic
in search of greener pastures in Nigeria, in
a negative way," he said. The police boss
disclosed that one of the 11 kid robbers, a
12-year-old boy, was apprehended in
Ogbomoso in a robbery-related conduct.
"In the course of the arrest, he led us to
six other members of his group, where
four of them were minors and the two
others adults. "The boy is from Kwara
State, as we got to know from his
confession. He confessed that his father
was living happily with his mother until he
married a second wife.
"As a result of that, there was a problem
and the mother moved out with the kid
robber and relocated to Ogbomoso," he
said. Katsina, however, added that the
command was currently taking care of the
11 arrested minors. He also said that
Governor Abiola Ajimobi had promised to
assist in the rehabilitation and provision
of adequate care for the kids.
"When I spoke with him, he said that
there were rehabilitation centres in
Ibadan, where the kids would be provided
with basic care amenities. The governor
also said that the state government would
assist to provide job opportunities for
unemployed youths in the state at the
projects." The Oyo police boss, however,
called on parents and the governments of
the neighbouring countries to monitor the
activities of their children and wards,
while admonishing Nigerians and
philanthropists to assist them.

shock of his life when he caught his 'faithful' wife
pants down with a neighbour on his bed at their
matrimonial home. The incident is said to have
happened at around 3am. "The two lovebirds' timing
was wrong as Maskiri decided to return earlier than
expected and he caught them in the act.
He then alerted some neighbours who proceeded to
report the matter to the police," said a witness. A
source said the husband, only identified as Maskiri,
returned home from prayers earlier than the usual
time and this helped him to catch his unfaithful wife,
Fungai Sibanda, having sex with their neighbour,
identified as Tinashe Mutuwari.
When Maskiri was contacted for comment, he
opened up saying he was still in dilemma of what
had driven his wife to do such an embarrassing
thing. "I had gone for an all-night prayer and my wife
had remained at home. At around 3am, I decided to
go home as I was feeling sleepy.
When I got home, I got the shock of my life as I
found my wife sleeping with Tinashe on our bed. I
became weak and could not do or say anything to the
two. I quietly walked out and informed some
neighbours," said Maskiri.
He revealed that he suspected it was not the first
time Tinashe had spend the night at his home as he
regularly went for all-night prayers leaving his wife
at home. To the surprise of many, the wife got a
restraining order from a local court against her
husband. "Surprisingly, Fungai rushed to seek a
peace order against me saying I was troubling her
and she won the case," the husband added.

1. Legislative Control.
It is so clear that President Muhammadu
Buhari in no way tried to decide who
becomes the leader of the national

fairness and allow the legislators choose
who leads them as stipulated by the
constitution. However, it was obvious

as the Senate President, but this did not
2. Choice Of Ministers:
There is a huge tendency that both Buhari
and Tinubu will clash as some of the
ministerial nominees preferred by Tinubu
might be rejected which could spark a row
between him and Buhari. As the days
continue to count, Nigerians eagerly await
the list of Ministers to be presented and
forwarded to the National Assembly for
confirmation. Although there had been
rumour that some Governors had
allegedly presented a list of ministers with
which the president rejected.
3. Osinbajo Might Be Sidelined:
As a matter of fact, Osinbajo is more of
the only political appointee of Bola Tinubu
in this present government. Especially as
regards the events that just happened at
the inauguration of the 8th Assembly.
There is every possibility that the in-
experienced lawyer could be sidelined.
4. Once A General Is Always A General:
Although, president Muhammadu Buhari
has made it clear that he should not be
referred to as a 'General'. He has
ensured fairness so far but we all know he
has a military background and he would
definitely definitely cut-to-size every over
bearing tendency of any individual.
5. Tinubu's Over-Bearing Influence:
Just like the events that happened at the
National Assembly. It is evident that Bola
Tinubu is becoming dictatorial in his mode
of politicking. The Jagaban Borgu he is
fondly called has a way of foistering his
choice on the majority even when it is
against public opinion. His refusal to
accept and recognize Saraki also gave

want his authority being challenged.

Chigbu, has been slammed with a 25 year
jail term in a South African prison for
dealing in drugs and racketeering.
The Durban High Court South
Africa handed down the long sentence on
Chigbu after he was found guilty
of running a drug cartel inside the panel
business he was a co-owns in the city.
According to the indictment on the
Nigerian who is married to a South African
woman, Chigbu would receive orders for
cocaine and Ecstasy on his phone which he
distributes using three couriers including
his wife, Sithembile Sbongile Chigbu,
another Nigerian, Sunny Augustine Seyi
Osazuwa and a Burundian national,
Ndayisaba Ramazani, who would deliver
the drugs to customers who would then
pay the money into Chigbu's panel beating
business bank account.
The four accused were arrested following
a sting operation staged by the Organised
Crime Unit of the SA police.

National Assembly are to receive N8.64
billion as Wardrobe allowance next week.
According to ThisDay, N8.64 billion
wardrobe allowance translates to N17.5
million for each of the 360 members of
the House of Representatives and N21.5
million for each of the 109 senators. This
is asides the other allowances they are
entitled to which includes furniture,
housing and vehicle.
While the wardrobe allowance will cover
the entire four-year tenure that they will
be in office, their housing allowances are
to be paid on a yearly basis. Based on the
approval of the Revenue Mobilisation
Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC),
the housing allowance for political office
holders is usually 200 per cent of their
annual salaries, the furniture allowance is
300 per cent of annual salaries, while a
motor vehicle loan is pegged at 400 per
cent of their annual salaries.
Going by this policy, each of the 107
senators besides the Senate President and
his deputy, will be paid N4,052,800 as
housing allowance. This will be paid to
them every year, translating to
N433,649,600 as housing allowance to be
paid to the Senate annually, while the
Senate President and the Deputy Senate
President will be provided accommodation
by the federal government.
On the other hand, each member of the
House of Representatives will be paid
N3,970,425 as housing allowance. This
implies that the each of the 358 House of
representatives members aside the
Speaker and Deputy Speaker, will collect a
total of N1,421,412,150 as housing
Like that of the Senate, the speaker and
deputy speaker will be given
accommodation by the federal
government. Following the monetisation
of entitlements of public officials
undertaken by the Olusegun Obasanjo
administration, the lawmakers lost the
right to occupy houses built and
maintained by the government. Hence, the
federal government sold the houses
previously occupied by the lawmakers to
Since the principal officers of the Sixth
National Assembly benefited from the sale
of the houses, the Federal Capital Territory
Administration (FCTA) is currently building
new ones for the four presiding officers of
both chambers. On the furniture
allowance, each of the senators will be
paid N6,079,200 while the furniture for
both the Senate president and his deputy
will be provided by the government. The
total sum to be paid to the 107 senators
as furniture allowance will be
In the House of Representatives, each
member will be paid N5,955,637.50 as
furniture allowance. This means that the
358 members will collect a total of
N2,132,118,225 for furniture.
On the vehicle loan, each of the senators is
entitled to N8,105,600, while each House
member is entitled to N7,940,850.50,
meaning that the 107 senators will
collectively take N867,299,200 as vehicle
loans while the 358 House members will
get N2,842,824,479 for their vehicles.
