The first 419 in the history of Nigeria

 



It was this Itsekiri man who as an agent first leased Warri city lands to the British Government in 1908 (from Ogbe Ijoh and Agbassa lands).


But Was Dore Numa a Native of Warri City? No. He was a Native of Odogene village in the Benin River. He was approached as an agent, not the owner. But most of the lands he leased resulted into court cases, because he claimed them to be Olu lands.


This was because there was no Olu then and he was appointed by the British as a Warrant Chief to represent the Itsekiri people since there was no OLU. This he did so that he could collect all the proceeds of the Leases into his pocket. All the lands he leased whether Urhobo, Ijaw or Itsekiri lands ended up in court cases as the real owners challenged him that the lands were not Olu lands.


He leased Ogbe Ijoh lands(Ijaw)


He leased Agbassa lands( Urhobo)


He leased Ogidigben lands(Itsekiri)


He leased Sapele lands(Urhobo)


He leased Oghara lands.(Urhobo)


When he was alive He did not lose any case.


Why?


Because he was Power exemplified in the Warri Province.( Later Delta Province). He was the Paramount Chief of the Warri Province, the last person you meet before you get to the Resident (British). He was the Executive Traditional head.


He was the Head of the Warri native court of appeal- in other words- the Chief Judge of the state in Customary and land matters.


He was also a law maker.


He was the only member in the whole of the South South that was a member of the Nigerian National Council of 1914 formed by Lord lugard. So he was a Chief Judge, a Federal Minister a Governor and a Parliamentarian. And most of these appointments came directly from England, for he was a recipient of the king’s medal in 1907.


He was given this Position because he help betrayed Nana in 1894, by showing the British a Secret route to enter Ebrohimi. He also did that against Oba Ovonranmwen in 1897.


He was able to win all these cases, because he was dealing with a Population that was highly illiterate.


When he knows that he would lose a case, he will opt to use legal technicalities made by the rules of court, which he knows very well but which his victims did not know.


1) How come every piece of land he leased for the BRITISH (Whether Urhobo, Ijaw or Itsekiri) as Olu land ended up as a court case?


2) How come he did not lose any of the Court cases when he was alive but his Successors from


Ginuwa II, lost all the lands in the same Court case except the Agbassa lands which even Parliament had to intervene to remedy??


In 1941, Oghara recovered their lands using the courts.


In 1942, Sapele recovered their lands using the Courts.


Now see how selfish this man could be?? He went to court claiming that he leased the lands as Olu lands and because he occupies the office of the Olu, he should take the proceeds.


But the blood descendants of the Olu led by Denedo and William Moore sued that if the lands were Olu lands, then the Proceeds ought to be given to the blood descendants of the Olu and not a British appointed Warrant Chief like him.


Dore Numa argued that the money from the lease belonged to the “Office” of the Olu and not the “Person” of the Olu.


HE WON….


He won them down to the Supreme Court.


But the descendants of the Olu were also crafty and cunning.


Seeing that the money belonged to the office of the Olu as decreed by the Courts, they quickly wrote to the Government that they have decided to crown an Olu for themselves after 88 years of interregnum and needed that Money to build a new Palace for the incoming Olu in ODE ITSEKIRI.


At last the British accepted the Superior logic. Dore had been cornered.


The British had no choice and asked Dore Numa to stop forthwith, using the full funds.


He should keep 1/6th for himself, and pay 5/6th into the Olu trust Fund.


That was a big blow to him and he never forgave the Itsekiris for that.


Why you may ask?


Because immediately he got a Court Judgement against the Agbassa Urhobo people on fraudulent technical ground that they were Customary Tenants to the jikiris, the jikris of Okere took the Okumagba family to court being that they are Urhobos. They claimed that by that Agbassa Judgement, the Urhobos in Okere were Tenants to the jikiris and must pay them rents.


Surprisingly the Court of first instance gave the jikiris victory using the Ogegere versus Dore Numa as an Authority.


But the Okumagba family appealed to the Appeal court headed by Dore Numa himself, a Court in which he presided.


But Dore Numa shocked his own jikiris to their bone marrow, by paying them back for removing food from his mouth.


So in the 1927 case of Nikoro Versus Okumagba, Chief Dore Numa gave the Historic


Judgement that:


“The Urhobos and the Jikiris have been living together for centuries, without one paying rent to the other…And I cannot hold so now”…


This controversial man died in 1932

See what a bride did that makes people angry

 


The freedom to do whatever we like in public is getting into the heads of some of our young ladies. They find joy in immorality and they expose their bodies in any way they like. With what we are seeing every day, one can sense that immorality is on the rise in our society, and the law enforcement agency needs to be aware of this so that abnormalities can be reduced.



African ladies are beginning to act based on what they have learnt from the civilised world, which is one more reason why the rate of indecency is getting out of hand in Africa. This is the case of a beautiful lady who got married to a pastor, but it was her mode of dressing that attracted people’s attention

Mother and child burnt abeakuta tanker explosion

 


A mother and her child were burnt beyond recognition on Sunday at Lafenwa, Abeokuta, when a petrol-laden tanker exploded and went up in flames.

The Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun State, Ahmed Umar, confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abeokuta.

Mr Umar said the tanker driver was manoeuvring through bad portions of the road when the vehicle fell on its side.

He said also that the FRSC, the police, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and the Fire Service were on ground, adding that injured victims were taken to the hospital.

“The two deceased were burnt beyond recognition. An angry mob who threw stones at security agents at the scene also destroyed a Fire engine.

“The police were able to calm the situation and few of the hoodlums were arrested,’’ Mr Umar said.

The spokesperson of the state’s Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, Babatunde Akinbiyi, had earlier confirmed the incident to journalists.

Mr Akinbiyi said the tanker went up in flames because of the uncooperative attitude of people around the incident who were scooping fuel and engaging in other unwholesome acts which sparked the fire.

He said the tanker had an axle problem and overturned at about 4:45 a.m. while making its way around Lafenwa, spilling its content on the road.

He advised the general public to vacate the area, saying that TRACE, the police, the FRSC and the Fire Service were all on ground to put the situation under control.

NAN reports that several shops in the area were also destroyed by the fire. ( NAN )

How bankers help us to steal money from costomers account,

 


A suspected hacker identified as Habib Aliyu has confessed how some bank workers help him with information to easily hack people’s accounts through their stolen phones.

The 29 years old suspect was arrested when a gang of notorious armed robbers alleged that he was one of their frequent receivers of stolen goods.

The armed robbers alleged that Habib and several others still at large normally collect the SIM (Subscribers Identification Module) cards from them and withdraw money from the owner’s account.

He was tracked down and arrested in Mushin area of Lagos state and he confessed to have used the SIM card s in those stolen phones to steal money from the accounts of the victims. He also revealed the roles played by some staff of five new generation banks whose responsibilities were to provide account numbers with money and codes.

In an interview with The Sun, Habib claimed that he was recruited by a syndicate made up of notorious armed robbers and phone hackers.

His words: “My name is Habib Aliyu and I am from Ogun State, I dropped out of school when my father died and there was no other way to survive. After spending so many years in the village with my mother, I was sent to go and learn plumbing work at Mushin area.

I had learnt the work and could fix a pipe without supervision, so my boss would send me alone to his customers.

“Two years ago, I was sent to a house in Mushin and when I got there, I met so many boys with computers. I knew that they are yahoo boys and they were discussing about SIM cards. I managed to join the conversation and was lamenting how I had suffered and would like to succeed in life. I was asked to join them but that I must join their cult group. I was desperate, so I joined them the Eiye fraternity . I was initiated that very day and asked to go home and come back the next day.

“I did not tell my boss what happened but lied that the people asked me to come back and check the pipe again. This was how I started learning the work.

“They have different groups and we call them squads. I am under Mushin, Ikorodu and Agege group. I can be drafted to work in any of these areas. Those whose job is to steal phones and bring the SIM card to us are called the strike squad.

“I belong to the cash squad. Our job is to use computer and withdraw money from that account. I learnt the job for one week before I was allowed to work independently. I told my boss and family that I got a cleaning job in that compound and they believed me.”

On how they withdraw money from people’s account, Habib alleged that they now rely on bankers to provide specific information for them.

“Every bank has its own USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) code already, we dial several codes on the stolen line and as soon as we get a response, we will know the bank. We will be able to know if the person uses birth date as pin. The BVN number can be gotten from any phone with ease.

“If it is so difficult, we will quickly call our contacts in the bank to provide information for us. They can tell you which account you can find money because of time. They also let us know the three digits on the person’s ATM card .

“This is needed when you want to transfer big money from the account or use it to buy products online. We normally work at night or early hours of the morning. We work with time because Nigerians are wiser, they will quickly block the line if you waste time. Depending on when you are on duty, we start around 11pm when the strike force who left for night raid returns with stolen phones. And we also work by 6am for those who managed to do early morning raid. Banks open by 8am, so if you are not able to work fast the owner will walk into the bank and block the account.

“Some people are too wise not to store their account number on the phone, so we need the help of our contact inside the bank to get such sensitive information. You simply give them the phone number and the information will be provided. It is Segun that has the responsibility to reach out to them. There are five new generation banks that we normally love using.

“I have promised to help the police to catch Segun and I promise my family that I will go back to my plumbing work. Crime does not pay.”

On their sharing formula, Habib claimed that they lose more money by using contacts in the bank. “We try as much as we can to decode the account without any form of help from inside. If we use them, then they will be given 40 per cent of what we get. We will now share the remaining 60 per cent. If they did not help us, then we will give the strike force 60 per cent and take 40 per cent. We are small time hackers because we do not have the application to move millions out of people’s account. We rarely move than N100, 000 in 24 hours. It’s only those that are stolen on Fridays that you can take as much as possible before Monday. Most importantly, if we see big money in an account, Segun will tell our insider to deactivate their email alert, so that the person will assume that all is well till he retrieves his SIM card from the service provider.

“The business is becoming difficult every day because people now know how to block their lines online. If you are not fast, you will not get a kobo. The only way to stop us is by putting password on your SIM card. I am very sorry; my greatest wish is to become an engineer. I am ready to help the police to arrest the others, especially Segun.”

On how he was caught, Habib said that he received a call from one of their suppliers and he went to pick the SIM card with the intent to do it alone.

“The guy told me that we would share the proceeds into two and I agreed to meet up with him. I never knew that the police had arrested him. This was how they caught me. Since I joined them, they have never arrested me because we are very careful.”

100,000 Nigerians sign petition to arrest, imprison president buhari

 



A petition by former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, on a social media platform to have President Muhammadu Buhari tried and imprisoned by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity, has received 100,000 signatures.

Omokri announced this following recovery of the platform which was hacked by hackers, who are, according to him, paid by the Presidency.

The petition was filed on November 17, 2021, and reached 50,000 signatures in under 48 hours. Then it was hacked by unknown hackers on the evening of November19, 2021 just as it reached 80,000 signatures.



However, following direct consultations between Omokri and those running the platform, the petition was restored to its original language and restored on Friday, November 26, 2021, and less than 24 hours after it was restored, it hit 100,000 signatures and counting.

Killing of aou student, police speak on missing body parts.

 


The Osun State Police Command has refuted a report that a suspect in the case of late Timothy Adegoke, a post-graduate student of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State, Rahman Adedoyin, released an audio message while in custody.

The spokesman of the police in the state, SP Yemisi Opalola, spoke on Tuesday at a news conference in Osogbo.

Opalola said the purported audio message allegedly made by the suspect, who is the owner of Hilton Hotel, where Adegoke lodged, was embarrassing to the police.

Opalola said upon investigation, the suspect stated that he made and released the audio before he was arrested.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Adegoke, an Abuja-based student, had travelled to Ife on November 5 to write an examination at the OAU Distance Learning Centre in Moro, Osun State.

He was declared missing when friends and family members could not reach him days after the examination.

It was further learnt that the deceased had lodged at a hotel in Ile-Ife, owned by Adedoyin, a number of times between October 22 and November 5, when he was declared missing.

His corpse body was later found by the police.

Opalola said: “On the issue of the audio recording made by the suspect, Mr. Rahman Adedoyin, the police was embarrassed by the report.

“Upon investigation, Adedoyin admitted being the author of the audio message, saying he felt inclined to make it when some members of his staff were arrested by the police.

“He affirmed making it before he was arrested to defend himself when some people, especially the brother of the deceased, referred to him as a ritualist.

“He said he made the audio message to clear himself of involvement in the murder of Adegoke, stressing that traducers already maligned his character even without due process of law.

“He added that he recorded the audio before his arrest by the police as his employees were arrested on November 11 and November 12, whereas he (Adedoyin) was arrested on November 15.”

Opalola said the suspect, however, denied having knowledge of whether the audio was released or when it was released, not until the police told him about it since he had been in incarceration and did not have access to his phone.

The police spokesperson said the police state command would not stop its investigation until it unravelled who actually released the audio message.

Opalola explained that another report that Adedoyin was being kept in a VIP cell by the police was untrue.

She said all the suspects arrested in connection with the matter were in lawful custody and that the police even had a court order justifying their detention pending the completion of investigation.

Opalola said the issue of whether any body part of the deceased Adegoke was missing when his body was exhumed had been settled.

She said everyone present – Police, deceased family members and pathologist – at the scene of the exhumation of the body, sighted the corpse when it was unwrapped and attested to it that no part of the body was missing.

She said if any body part was missing, somebody among the witnesses would have raised an alarm on the matter at that particular time.

Comedian klint da drunk survive from car accident

 



Klint Da Drunk


Popular Nigerian comedian Afamefuna Igwemba, popularly known as Klint Da Drunk, has expressed gratitude to God for surviving a car crash. While the car was damaged to a large extent behind, the humour merchant was unscathed.


Praising God for surviving the accident unscratched, the comedian posted some pictures of the wrecked car on his verified Instagram account. He captioned the photos, “Can’t believe I was in this car! Lord God Almighty, I thank you for the gift of life. You saved me and brought me out without a single scratch. Lord, I thank you!”


His friends, fans and colleagues have taken to his comment section to express their joy that Klint Da Drunk is safe and unharmed.


Ace Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim wrote, “Glory be to God. Thank You Lord.”


Veteran indigenous rap artiste, Mr Raw simply wrote, “Thank God for life.”


Also, popular Nigerian actor, Charles Inojie commented, saying, “Thank God o.”


Meanwhile, this would not be the first time the funnyman has been involved in a car accident. In August 2019, the 46-year-old entertainer took to his Instagram page to share pictures of the commercial vehicle he boarded, which had sustained a crumpled engine compartment and a shattered windshield. He said he got out with ‘very minor injuries.’


In the lengthy post, the comedian wrote, “Please, help me in praising God Almighty for delivering us from the jaws of death. Along Bauchi-Jos express road, we were involved in a terrible car crash. We boarded a golf 2 on charter as it was the only means to move.


“The driver was careful enough so I had no issues with him but then, out of the blues, a truck jumped right in front of us. The road was wet as it had been drizzling. The driver tried all he could to stop the car but the slippery road just made it look like he did nothing all I was shouting was “JESUS! JESUS!! JESUS!!!” and with a speed of about 100km/H or thereabout, we rammed right into the back of this truck.


“God being so merciful and wonderful, we got out with very minor injuries. How the tail of the truck was stopped from causing major damage to us is just God’s doing. God, I thank you for life, I thank You for your mercies, I thank You for Your Grace and for your love on sinners like us. May your name be glorified forever in Jesus Mighty Name!!! Amen!!!”
