He restated that he had decided to forgive his betrayal and wished his family well.

He wrote in part …

“Speaking about forgiveness,
I forgive him completely.
It hurts deeply when a friend you love, took like a brother, stood for and shown love over
the years turns around to stab you in the back repeatedly
without remorse.
Sadly that’s the world we live in. Humans are filled with flaws.
To err is human, but to forgive is divine.
I forgive him & wish his family the very best.

Dear Nollywood & humanity, I hope this serves as a wake-up call.
Life is short & unpredictable.
None of us will be here forever.
Let us bring back love and unity
amongst us.
You gain nothing by trying to bring another person down.
The sky is big enough for all of us to
fly.
When you see your fellow man or woman having issues, don’t be that person who will add to the pain.”

Man in custody for allegedly defrauding Thai $216,000, N30m

The Lagos State Police Command says it arrested one Chimereze Chinedu for allegedly defrauding a Thai national to the tune of $216,000 and N30m respectively.

The command’s Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, in a statement made available on X.com on Tuesday, disclosed that the suspect allegedly promised to supply his victim with 37 tricycles which he valued at $216,000.

The suspect in a move to further extort money from his victim was said to have forged letters from the State Criminal Investigation Department to lure his victim into believing that the tricycles were seized by the police.

Hundeyin noted that Chinedu allegedly used the forged documents to obtain another sum of N30m from the victim purportedly to secure the release of the seized tricycles.

He said, “Chimereze defrauded his victim under the pretence of selling 37 tricycles to her. He further expanded his fraudulent activity by forging letters of the State Criminal Investigative Department, Lagos showing that the tricycles were seized by the police and further extorted N30m from the victim to purportedly secure the release of the tricycles.”

The PPRO noted that following weeks of investigation and a collaboration with officials of the International Criminal Police Organisation, “the suspect was arrested on May 10, 2024, in Enugu State.”

The police spokesperson noted that efforts were going on to apprehend other accomplices of the suspect while stressing the command’s commitment to combating internet fraud.

PUNCH Metro reported on Thursday that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission arrested 15 suspected Internet fraudsters in Zaria, Kaduna State.

A statement released by the anti-graft agency via X.com noted that the suspects were apprehended outside the premises of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, following credible intelligence linking a syndicate of fraudsters to suspected involvement in internet fraud.

Consequently, the EFCC operatives acted swiftly on the intelligence received, leading to the arrest of the suspects in the vicinity of the university.

 

 

Naira abuse: EFCC arrests woman for spraying N1000 notes

Investigators of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,  Gombe State Zonal Command, have arrested a woman identified as Janty Emmanuel for allegedly abusing the Nigerian currency in the state

Emmanuel was arrested on Monday, May 20, 2024, following intelligence that spotted her spraying Naira notes at a social event.

This was disclosed in a statement issued Tuesday by the commission’s Head,  Media & Publicity, Dele Oyewale.

The statement partly read, “Upon arrest, the suspect was shown the video where she was dancing at G-Connect, Tumfure, Gombe State and spraying Naira notes of N1,000 denomination.

“She admitted committing the crime. She will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.”

For some months now, the anti-graft agency has continued to clamp down on Nigerians who are found guilty of abusing the naira.

In April 2024, the Federal High Court in Lagos State, sentenced controversial crossdresser, Idris Olarewaju Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky, to six months imprisonment without the option of a fine for abusing the naira.

Justice Abimbola Awogboro, while sentencing the convict, said the judgment would be a deterrent to others who are found abusing and mutilating the naira.

Before the sentence, Bobrisky had begged the court that he was not aware of the law of abusing the naira.

He said that he is a social media influencer with over five million followers.

The judge then told him that ignorance of the law was not an excuse.

He said, “I know, My Lord. My Lord, I wish that you could give me a second chance to use my platform to inform and educate my followers about spraying money.

“I would do a video on my page and I would educate people about spraying money.

“I will not repeat it, My Lord. I regret my actions, My Lord.”

However, popular celebrity barman, Pascal Okechukwu, popularly known as Cubana Chief Priest, had reached an agreement with the EFCC to resolve the naira abuse charge outside of court.

Cubana Chief Priest appeared before Justice Kehinde Ogundare, facing three counts related to abusing the national currency at a social gathering.

He allegedly sprayed and tampered with the naira notes during a social event at the Eko Hotel in Lagos.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges preferred against him and was granted bail in the sum of N10 million.
