A middle-aged woman, Falilat Olatunji, was on Wednesday arrested by men of the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly stealing a four-month-old baby boy in Abeokuta.
The source learnt that the suspect was arrested following a report by one Alhaji Abdul Akeem Dawodu, who reported at Sabo Ilupeju Police Station that one Ms Taiwo Bello was washing her clothes behind the house at Iyana Kajola, Mile 2, Abeokuta; leaving her four month old baby, Ibrahim Bello, sleeping in the room.
She reportedly got back to the room and discovered that the baby had been taken away by an unknown person.
It was said that the woman raised alarm, which attracted a lot of people to the house.
Ogun police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said, “Upon the report, the DPO, Sabo Ilupeju division, CSP Alhasan AbdulAzeez, mobilized his detectives to the scene and commenced a full scale investigation into the case.”
Oyeyemi informed that the efforts of the police yielded positive result when the suspect was sighted at Ilewo Orile with the baby and was promptly arrested.
“On interrogation, the suspect, who resides at 23, Jawando street Ayobo Lagos confessed stealing the baby, but claimed that she only wanted to use the baby to deceive her husband whom she had earlier informed that she got pregnant for as the product of the pregnancy.”
Investigation further revealed that the suspect was once squatting in the same house with the parents of the baby and that she was present during the naming ceremony of the same baby.
The baby, police said, had been reunited with his parents.
Meanwhile, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, CP Bashir Makama, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and prosecution.
Makama equally appealed to members of the public to always beware of people around them; saying “there are a lot of wolves in human skin.”
Controversial Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has revealed that if she was to get married to popular Nigerian cross dresser, Idris Okuneye, a.k.a Bobrisky, she won’t be spending any money at all, because she knows he is up to the task.
The mother of one who recently disclosed in a bare-it-all interview that she sponsored her own wedding, revealed this in reaction to a doctored photo of herself and Bobrisky, depicting them as husband and wife, with Bobrisky being the husband.
“You people are mad. Bobrisky my hubby, look at us. The wedding I didn’t pay for. Bob, with you at least I know that I won’t spend one naira to marry you,” she said.
While many see it as a stylish mockery of her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill, others are still puzzled about the true gender of Bobrisky and the nature of his relationship with Tonto Dikeh.
Manchester United have reportedly moved a major step closer to selling Paul Pogba just after the end of the Premier League season yesterday.
According to Don Balon, the Red Devils and Real Madrid seem to have moved a lot closer to an agreement on a deal, with the Spanish giants offering €140m for Pogba.
Don Balon claim Man Utd seem to be happy with this offer, with the two clubs able to compromise after the English side initially demanded €160m, while Madrid offered €100m.
The Telegraph have previously reported of Los Blancos’ interest in Pogba and of the France international’s desire to leave Old Trafford for the Bernabeu.
Meanwhile, the Guardian have also linked the 26-year-old as a transfer target for his former club Juventus ahead of this summer.
It makes sense that Pogba rumours are circulating after another disappointing season in the Premier League, with the player unable to hit top form in this United side, who ended up trophyless and in 6th place in the table.
MUFC will have expected much more from Pogba when they spent big to sign him, and he will likely have expected more from them too as he seems a player capable of playing for teams competing for major honours.
It seems he’s now closer to getting his chance to do that at Real Madrid, according to Don Balon, in news that could split United fans.
Many will feel it’s the best time to sell Pogba as his stock remains high but his performance levels poor, while others will surely feel he’s a player worth keeping faith in.
Sky Sports have also reported of Man Utd players having to take a pay cut after missing out on Champions League qualification, with Pogba now surely able to earn more elsewhere as well as playing in Europe’s top club competition with the likes of Madrid.
Even though many do it on the low key, others have admitted to using uganga to catalyse their craft.
Some of the celebrities that we will be looking at include gospel singer Sarkozi, bongo star Diamond Platnumz, his sister Esma Platnumz, Hamisa Mobetto and Darassa.
Gospel singer Rigan Sarkozi’s life history is an inspiring yet scary one altogether.
In an interview on Radio Jambo, the man who rose to fame thanks to his ‘Wewe ni Mungu’ hit song featuring Daddy Owen, shocked many when he revealed that he once resorted to witchcraft and drug dealing to survive.
Opening up on his controversial past, Sarkozi said his spirit convinced him to speak out on how he turned to the same God he was fighting in search for prosperity.
“As a Christian and a human being, I got saved in 2011, and since then, I haven’t spoken about this (practising witchcraft),” he said.
“I did not wake up just one morning and get saved. I have been involved in theft cases, witchcraft, among others. I would come into your house and steal your TV set and leave, only for you to realise it hours later.”
He said it all started with the company he kept in the past. His friends were into women and the partying life, and since their parents would never give them money for such, they resorted to stealing household items.
Sarkozi decided to change his ways for good upon receiving a call from his mother, who dreamt that her son had died.
It is at that point that he fled Tanzania with the little he had and came back to Kenya, where he grew up, and decided to give his life to Christ, despite being as drunk as a fiddler back in 2011.
The news that Hamisa had gone to a witchdoctor to bewitch Diamond raised eyebrows. When Hamisa came to Kenya, she said she had gone to seek spiritual guidance and not witchcraft.
Diamond had spoken about it on his TV station, Wasafi TV, saying she had gone to seek a witchdoctor’s help to secure Diamond’s love.
He called out his baby mama, Hamisa Mobetto, for seeking the services of witchdoctors to compel him to marry her.
“You have gone to witch doctors wishing harm against my family. That means you could kill my mum and here you are asking that I buy you a house,” he wrote.
I have heard those voice notes going round. I heard things that I knew that is her (Hamisa). I know this is you. I even told her I know this is you. You want my mum and sister to look like the bad people. They can never be the bad people.
What you are doing is not right. You should focus on your businesses and your work, instead of going to the witchdoctors to charm me into marrying you.”
Darassa, however, said it was long ago, and he did not go to seek black magic powers over his music but for personal issues.
“If I say I have never gone to a witchdoctor I will be lying. I have been to one once in my life. I did not go for my personal issues rather we went as a team, with a group I was playing with football.
My team believed in that challenge, was the team captain yet I was the youngest thus I did not have the sheer will of going against the advice of my elders.”
Joseph Mayanja, popularly known as Jose Chameleone, is arguably the best musician in the East African region. Having stayed in the music industry for 16 years, Chameleone has managed to become one of the most-sought-after artistes around, despite many peers fading into insignificance.
Known for hit songs such as Wale Wale, Nkoleki, Vale Vale, Dorotia, Tubonge, Agatako and Pam Pam, Chameleone’s music has always dominated both the local and international airwaves, a clear indication that he is creative and talented.
The Tubonge hit singer has also worked his way up, and his lavish lifestyle is a clear indication of that. From his palatial mansions to driving expensive cars, Chameleone is a clear indication that indeed, music pays.
