  • A mentally challenged beggar in a community in Anambra state, has been nabbed with N200,000 by officials of the state government.


    It has been reported that a mentally-challenged beggar was on Thursday arrested with about N200,000 in her possession by officials of the Anambra State Government.
     
    According to Punch Metro, it was learnt that the state government officials had about a month ago set up machinery, through the Office of the Commissioner for Women’s Affairs and Social Welfare, to rid the state of such people.
     
    The woman, said to be in her 50s and always seen around Aroma Junction in Awka, the state capital, was arrested by government officials with the intention to take her to a mental home in the state.
     
    A government source, who pleaded anonymity, disclosed that the officials approached the woman and led her into their van, but she protested that she would not leave behind her properties.
     
    The source said, “So, the officials told her they would not carry all the waste she referred to as properties, but she should take anything that was most valuable to her. That was when she ransacked the waste and dug out the money.

    “We were curious because she is a woman who is mentally sick and used to beg around Aroma Junction in Awka.

    “In the process, N200,000 was recovered from her.”
     
    A passerby, who identified himself as Tony, added, “I know this woman. She is always neat despite her condition. She buys her own food each time she is hungry.

    “She did not disclose the source of the money, but it can be from the proceeds of alms she had received over time.
     
    “Again,  it has long been suspected that men always sneaked into her place at night to meet her.”
     
    Efforts to reach the Commissioner for Women’s Affairs and Social Development, Mrs Ndidi Mezue, proved abortive as she neither picked her calls nor responded to text messages.

  • A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode has threatened that President Muhammadu Buhari will be disgraced out of power if he fails to relinquish power in 2019 after a possible defeat.[Image: faani.JPG]

    Fani Kayode seems confident that the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Abubakar Atiku will take President Buhari to the cleaners in the 2019 election.
     
    He believes that President Buhari will be forced out of office like Laurent Gbagbo if he refuses to vacate office in the event of election loss.
     
    "To those that boastfully proclaim that after Buhari has been defeated he will not step down for Atiku I say this: if he refuses to go we will march on the Villa, enter his bedroom, give him the Gbagbo treatment and send him to the ICC to answer for his many crimes against humanity," he tweeted.
     

     
    Laurent Gbagbo is an Ivorian politician who was the President of Côte d'Ivoire from 2000 until his arrest in April 2011.
    Born: 31 May 1945 (age 73 years), Gagnoa, Côte d’Ivoire
     
    A historian by profession, as well as an amateur chemist and physicist, Gbagbo was imprisoned in the early 1970s and again in the early 1990s, and he lived in exile in France during much of the 1980s as a result of his union activism.

  • The Nigerian police has issued a serious warning to people driving cars with tinted glass on our roads.[Image: tinted-car.jpg]Car with tinted glass
     
    The Plateau Police Command has warned politicians, government officials and other motorists in the state to desist from using tinted glass on their vehicles without proper authorisation.
     
    Police Public Relations Officer in the state Police Command, DSP Terna Tyopev, gave the warning in a statement on Friday in Jos.
     
    Tyopev said the trend poses serious security threats as kidnappers, robbers and other criminals use it to beat security checks.
     
    He also warned those covering their vehicle number plates to desist, adding that the trend had been abused by misguided youths.
     
    “We have observed, with dismay, the negative trend where individuals, politicians and government functionaries use tinted glass on their vehicles and cover their number plates.

    “This trend poses security threats, especially at checkpoints, as kidnappers, armed bandits and other criminals disguise themselves using the antics to beat secure at any point.

    “So, the Command hereby warns members of the public to desist from such acts and advises that under no circumstances should people cover their vehicle number plates or use tinted glass without authorisation,’’ the statement read in part.
     
    Tyopev said the Command would soon begin to arrest erring motorists who tint glass or cover vehicle number plates.

  • Following a contest between Anambra State and the Anglican Communion, the Governor Willie Obiano-led government has banned religious activities in public schools.[Image: anambra-obiano-1.jpg]Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra State
     
    The Anambra Government, on Friday, banned religious bodies from using either public schools or its facilities, to conduct religious services across the state.
     
    The state Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr Don Adinuba, announced the ban in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Onitsha.
     
    Adinuba said the ban became imperative because of the ongoing seeming ownership tussle of Bishop Crowder Memorial School, Onitsha, being contested between the state and the Diocese on the Niger, Anglican Communion.
     
    NAN recalls that the Church, through its legal Secretary, Mr Tabugbo Anaeto, is laying ownership of the school.
     
    NAN further reports that members of the Anglican Church recently staged a peaceful protest and subsequently released a statement, accusing the state government of its alleged refusal to allow it to assume ownership of its property.
     
    Anaeto, in a statement, alleged that the state government had refused to make public the report of the fact-finding committee on the ownership of the school set up by former governor Peter Obi.
     
    But the commissioner dismissed the allegation, saying that the school, established by government during the colonial era, had been operated since then by the state government till date.

    “The original name of the school began as Local Authority School under the colonial masters; it never belonged to any church.

    “If they really lay claim of ownership, they should come forward with documents to prove that, but we do not want to engage in a press war with any organisation or individual in the state.

    “It will not be in the interest of the people of the state to engage in any kind of press war,”  the commissioner told NAN.
     
    Adinuba explained that the Deputy Governor had granted an oral plea by Anglican Church to allow it to conduct mid-week services in the school on Wednesdays.
     
    The commissioner said the church had been conducting mid-week service within the school premises but expressed surprise that it suddenly started erecting structures within the school compound without authorization.
     
    According to him, “what you know is not your own, why take it by blackmail,” the commissioner queried, saying that every property owned by churches were documented by the state government.
     
    “The Anambra Government has, therefore, banned religious services from being conducted in publicly owned secondary schools across the state based on our experience.

    “This is because if they are allowed to worship there, it may turn out to become their own without documentary evidence,” Adinuba said.

  • A young girl has narrated how she spent two days in the custody of her abductors who had killed an army officer and kidnapped her in Plateau State.[Image: abducted-teenager-1.jpg]
    The abducted Miss Gambo


     
    A teenage girl identified as Miss Gambo, who was recently kidnapped at Corner Soja, in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State, has narrated how she spent two-days in the custody of her abductors.
     
    The Plateau State police spokesperson, Tyopev Terna, had on October 10, confirmed the abduction of the girl, adding that a soldier identified as Abdullahi S., attached to Operation Safe Haven (OPSH), who attempted to rescue her from the abductors was killed in the incident.
     
    While speaking exclusively to PREMIUM TIMES, Miss Gambo narrated her ordeal and said;
     
    “I was at home around 7.30 p.m. on October 9 when suddenly I heard gunshots outside our house. Moment later, three people in military uniform came into my mother’s room and asked us to lie down. They started asking ‘Where is the money? Bring money. I said there was no money.

    “They asked if I was Hajiya. I replied no. They then entered my father’s room and saw my mother. The slapped her and asked her to bring money. At last, they took away all the money that my mother had in the house.

    “They wanted to go with three of us but succeeded in going with me alone. We walked on foot for many hours in a bush before we finally stopped and spent the rest of the night behind Federal Government Girls College, Jos.

    “In the early hours of the following day, we moved to another bush along Jos – Bauchi road where we stopped and called my mother. They asked her to bring N10 million as ransom but she said she did not have such money.

    “She begged them and they later described to her where she would meet us. After she arrived the meeting point, I don’t know what she gave them in exchange but she gave them something, even though I know she doesn’t have that money requested. I then followed her home.

    “It was a terrible experience and I will not pray to witness such. I trekked for many kilometres in the bush. I never thought I could.”

    If the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi had been assassinated by Israel, the whole Arab world would have loudly condemned it and demanded for investigations and sanctions against the Netanyahu government. The extra-judicial murder of any citizen by their own government is reprehensible and unacceptable.

    The Saudi government has no right to kill its own citizens or critics of its policies outside the law. It is sheer hypocrisy to be monotonously reminding the world of Assad’s human rights infringements while refusing to hold Saudi rulers accountable for their crimes against their own “citizens.”

    This is a scandal of epic international dimension which should produce serious diplomatic consequences for the impulsive Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman’s government. However, because hypocrisy is the middle name of Washington, UK and other Western governments, the Saudi government may conveniently get away with murder. After all, these Western leaders value profits more than principles and, therefore, all the noise will die down and Bin Salman ultimately goes unpunished for his crimes against humanity or his brutal human rights violations.

    Why do our Muslim clerics and leaders lose their voices, even their consciences, when it comes to Saudi Arabia? Is protecting Saudi leaders from accountability part of the Muslims’ duty to defend Islam? Is shielding murderous rulers from justice part of that duty? Where is the morality and justness in allowing murderous rulers to lead their people? Are the Saudi rulers who frequently refer to Assad of Syria “a brutal dictator” above the law? Do Muslims have any obligations to stand by Saudi rulers even when they are involved in a crime? Why should we be so sheepishly loyal to Saudi rulers that we ignore the voices of our consciences by failing to condemn evil?

    Catholic Church in Nigeria has reacted to the call for the sack of Bishop Matthew Kukah from the National Peace Committee by the Buhari Media Organisation, BMO.

    The Church also noted that Buhari, who met with Muslim clerics in Aso Rock recently and solicited their support for his re-election in 2019, to which the clerics pledged their support, has no right to talk about clerics being partisan.

    The BMO had called for Kukah’s withdrawal over his presence at the reconciliatory meeting between former President Olusegun Obasanjo and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

    The Caritas Nigeria and Justice Development and Peace Commission, JDPC, condemned the call Kukah’s withdrawal in a statement by the Director Church and Society, Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, Rev. Fr. Evaristus Bassey.

    JDPC, which is an organ of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria for relief and development pointed out that it was mischievous, since a man cannot commit an offence by doing his job.

    The statement said, “The animosity between ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo and Atiku Abubakar his erstwhile deputy, has long remained a national embarrassment. Bishop Kukah and the peace committee have been making efforts behind the scenes for their reconciliation.

    “These attempts have been on long before Atiku became the presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).

    “If the members of the BMO read Kukah’s explanatory notes, they would not come up with the misleading call for his withdrawal from the peace committee. That the move was eventually hijacked and politicised is not Bishop Kukah’s fault at all.

    “How can the president who met with Muslim clerics to endorse him on one hand, goes to an interfaith conference to berate other clerics for being partisan. Is it just because the notable clerics were involved in a reconciliation move that had opposition elements as the object.”

    The statement added that in 2015 when Buhari was contesting for the presidency, he visited the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria and was given audience.

    “Why has it suddenly become a crime for a National Peace Committee convener to do his job of facilitating peace between two national figures?

    “What we want to let the BMO know is that a Catholic Bishop is ordinarily so well trained and experienced, and so full of the sense of the common good, that the only partisanship he may have is what promotes the good of the poor.

    “If the fear of losing elections that is the main concern here, the BMO should be rest assured that the election outcome would depend mostly on how voters assess this government, and not whether Kukah reconciled Obasanjo with Atiku, that is, if the elections would be free and fair,” he said.

  • A spokesman of the Nigerian Police Force, has spoken out on the latest gun battle with armed robbers as the security operatives killed two of the robbers and foiled a bank attack.[Image: police2.jpg]

    The Nasarawa State Police Command on Thursday said it foiled a bank robbery attempt by a four-man gang, following a gun battle with the suspects in Lafia.
     
    Kennedy Idirisu, spokesman for the command, confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lafia.
     
    He said that policemen on duty at a branch of Diamond bank on Jos Road, Lafia, got a tip-off about the robbery on Wednesday, and engaged the gang in a gun battle at 10a.m. in front of the bank.
     
    Mr Idirisu said that the gang drove in in two vehicles, both with Lagos registration number – a Toyota Lexus marked EKY 282 DP and Toyota Corolla marked FST 411 FH.
     
    He said that the police arrested one of the suspects, and two died while receiving treatment at the Dalhatu Araf Hopital, Lafia.
     
    According to the spokesman, a suspect escaped with bullet wounds.
     
    “Our investigation revealed that the gang trailed a staff member of the General Hospital Nasarawa Eggon, from the bank in Lafia, where he withdrew N250, 000.
     
    “They followed him to Nasarawa Eggon, took the money, and returned to Jos Road, where there are clusters of banks, to carry out another operation, not knowing that they were being trailed.
     
    “The police swooped on them and arrested one of the suspects driving the Toyota Corolla, while the others in Toyota Lexus opened fire in an attempt to escape.
     
    “The jeep and two of the suspects were arrested on Shendam Road while the driver escaped with bullet wounds,” Mr Idirisu said.
     
    He said that the arrested suspect confessed to the crime, adding that items recovered from the vehicles included the stolen N250, 000, a master key and a wallet containing N31, 000.
     
    Similarly, Mr Idirisu said that the police arrested three other robbery suspects on the same day at Nasarawa LGA for allegedly robbing a couple at Gunki Village.
     
    He said that the robbery took place on Tuesday.
     
    According to him, the police recovered two locally-fabricated pistols, two live cartridges and valuables of the victims from the suspects.

  • Nigerians are now making tricycles which are far cheaper than the ones imported from foreign countries.[Image: peppp1.JPG]

    Commercial tricycles more popularly referred to in Nigeria as Keke NAPEP, have become a major means of commute in Nigeria.
     
    Across most cities in Nigeria, conspicuous sights of Keke NAPEP abound. They are typically used to cover short distances as opposed to bigger commercial buses that can travel further.
     
    Indeed, Keke NAPEP don’t come cheap. To own one, you would have to cough out a sizable amount. Their prices range from between N500,000 to N650, 000
     
    Few commercial drivers can afford them. Some drivers, in order to own one, work for it on hire purchase – a system where they ride one for a given period of time, pay the owner, and then they are handed possession of the tricycle.
     
    Perhaps, the high cost of acquiring a Keke NAPEP is tied to the fact that they are predominately imported from India and other Asian countries.
     
    This is one reason why we ought to look inward. In recent times,  we have come  to behold tricycles manufactured in Nigeria. Some of them come with some interesting innovations. For instance, some come fitted with doors – unlike the imported variants. Some come with electric fan and good ventilation. Some are made to take three to six passengers at a time. A particular one is powered by electricity – yes, our very own Tesla!
     
    Indeed, these could all be classed as the luxury version of the Keke NAPEP.
     
    So, why are we not investing in or patronizing our locally-made tricycles?[Image: peppp2.JPG][Image: peppp3.JPG]

  • It is the end of the road for a notorious cultists terrorizing residents of Lagos state after he was killed in a gang war.[Image: jpron.jpg]


    A notorious cultist and ex-convict, Ibrahim Oriyomi Balogun (AKA Small Jpron), accused by the police of carrying out multiple murders around Somolu and Bariga areas of Lagos, has been killed.
     
    It was gathered that Jpron, the leader of Eiye cult group, was reportedly killed, yesterday, in retaliation of the killing of one Solomon, said to the a member of Aiye cult. Jpron allegedly supervised the killing of Solo in Shomolu. 
     
    Yesuru, a third person involved in the violence, is reportedly battling for his life due to wounds sustained during the clash. .
     
    Before his death, Jpron had been arrested at least four times in the past – in November 2012, August 2016, March 2017 – on allegations of murder and cult-related activities. 
     
    He was arraigned in 2016 for murder, possession of firearms and for belonging to a cult. Shortly after his arrest in 2016, he surfaced in public again and the police said he escaped custody.
     
    When he was earlier paraded before journalists in 2016, he confessed to being involved in the killing of three persons. He had said, “I am an Eiye cult leader. I joined the cult in 2009. 

     
     

     
    The reason for my joining was to avenge the death of a close friend, Sunday Folorunsho, aka Small Biscuit. It was the Aiye cult members who killed him. So, the Eiye faction approached me and said I should join them. 
     
    They said they would help me to fish out the people who killed my friend. I have killed three persons, among are Femi Wiper and Lekan Akon.”
     
    When he was paraded before journalists in March 2017, the Commissioner of Police at the time, Fatai Owoseni, said Balogun escaped through the connivance of two police operatives, who were being investigated. Again, he found his way out.

    A video has shown the moment a Ghanaian man was seen on Wednesday storming a bank in Accra with his mattress, pillow, and other personal effects to take up residence in the banking hall, after his inability to withdraw money from his account.
     
    In the video shared by Adomonline, the visibly angry man was seen arriving in a taxi, before removing his personal effects and taking them into the banking hall.
     
    He was seen spreading his mattress on the floor in the banking hall, adding his pillow and lying down on it. After a while, he stood up and placed his shoes on the counter.
     

    He proceeded to lie on his mattress
     
    He reportedly took the action, after multiple attempts by him to withdraw his money were met with the response, “the service is down”.
    Staff and other customers at the banking hall were surprised by the man’s action.
     
    Panic withdrawals have become rampant in Ghanaian banks following the collapse of several banks in the country but the Bank of Ghana has given the assurance that depositors’ funds are safe.

  • An underlying health condition or traits inherited from the family that causes an adult to be bed-wetting, has been spoken about by a medical doctor, who shared an insight.[Image: bed-wetting-adults-1.jpg]


    A General Medical Practitioner, Dr. Samuel Adeolu, on Thursday, said bed-wetting among adults is a medical issue.
     
    Adeolu told the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja that the phenomenon among adult indicates an underlying health condition or traits inherited from the family.
     
    According to him, study has shown that someone with two bed-wetting parents has a 77 per cent chance of becoming a bed-wetter.
     
    “When one parent bed-wets as a child, his son or daughter is found to have a 40 per cent chance of becoming a bed-wetter. These probabilities carry into adulthood as well,’’ he said.
     
    Adeolu said that excessive production of urine during sleep was also known as nocturnal polyuria.
     
    “This abnormality can cause nocturnal enuresis in adults; but it is also a symptom related to type I diabetes.

    “Patients with a smaller bladder are often dealing with primary nocturnal enuresis.

    “The physical size of the bladder is not actually smaller, rather the Functional Bladder Capacity (FBC) can hold a smaller volume of urine.

    “Related to FBC, if the muscles of the bladder, known as detrusor muscles, are overactive, nocturnal enuresis can occur.

    “In fact, detrusor over-activity has been found in up to 70 to 80 per cent of primary nocturnal enuresis,” he said.
     
    Adeolu noted that psychological problems such as stress, fear, anxiety, side effects of certain medications, excessive ingestion of alcohol and irritable bladder are some of the causes of bed-wetting in adults.
     
    He said that for secondary nocturnal enuresis, underlying health issue was at the root of the bed-wetting.
     
    According to him, such problems can be associated with the prostate in men or pelvic organ prolapse in women.
     
    He said: “Any of these medical issues can also cause bed-wetting in adults.

    “They are Diabetes, urinary tract infection, urinary tract stones, neurological disorders, anatomical abnormalities, urinary tract calculi, prostate cancer, prostate enlargement, bladder cancer, or obstructive sleep apnea."
     
    He, however, said that the disorder among adults could be treated surgically with medication and a change in daily lifestyle routine.

    Her husband, Benson Richard, confirmed that they were almost dying of poverty when they decided to sell to sell the baby so that they could leave the village.

  • The senate's former minority leader, Godswill Akpabio has called on Senate President Bukola Saraki to resign honourably.[Image: Saraki.jpg]


    Former minority leader and Senator representing Akwa Ibom North West, Godswill Akpabio has advised the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to honourably resign rather than be forced out of office.
     
    He made this known while addressing a press conference after Wednesday’s plenary in Abuja.
     
    He said, it was a norm the world over that when a lawmaker resigns from his former political party, he relinquishes his office to allow the majority party form their leadership.
     
    He said, Mr Saraki should borrow a leaf from him as a former minority leader, saying he honourably resigned the position when he defected from PDP to APC to pave way for PDP to elect their minority leader.

    “It’s a tradition all over the world that when you defected to another party even as a Senate President like Saraki did, to resign from the office of the Senate President.

    “APC is still the majority party and they need to form a new leadership. The Senate President should honourably resign just like I did,” Mr Akpabio insisted.
     
    Speaking further on his experiences as a member of the APC, he said, he was fulfilled being a member of a ruling party, adding that he defected to the APC in national interest.

     
     
    He further explained that his advice and suggestions must not be looked at with suspicion being a part of the ruling party now.
     
    He came hard on his former party, PDP for doing nothing in the South-South in the last 16 years, adding that PDP government did not construct a kilometre of road for those years.
     
    “Having moved from PDP to APC, I felt fulfilled. My advice and suggestions in the national interest would not be looked upon with suspicion by the government in power again.

    “I moved to APC in national interest. I don’t believe in bringing government into being and will not support that government to succeed.

    “In the last 16 years, I did not see 1 kilometre of road done by PDP government in Akwa National Ibom state, but today, APC government is constructing the road from Akwa Ibom to Calabar.

    “The road has been a death trap and I must thank this government for that.

    “From the national and local perspectives, people look at me as a leader and I must tell you that in 2019, it would be difficult for any other party to penetrate the South-South.“

  • [Image: Prince-Mohammed-Bin-Salman.jpg]

    Saudi Arabia Crown Prince, Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] was the ‘strangler & emerging tyrant’ of the Arabian Peninsula! Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] symbolizes ‘authority’! Canada paid dearly for criticizing Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] Saudi Arabia politics, Yemen remains in pillage, Qatar is on economic stranglehold of Gulf Cooperation Countries [GCC] blockade led by Saudi Arabia.

    Saudi Arabia -Emirati led coalition destruction of Yemen and port blockade of Yemen’s port Hodeida [in the pretext of routing Iran backed Houthi Rebels from controlling the country] has attracted international and relief agencies condemnation.

    Yemen is in the threshold of annihilation and possible extinction with continued, ceaseless and unending bombings of civilians, school children, hospitals, and roads. Yet, Crown Prince, Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] doesn’t blink.

    The silence from the Arab world and the Arab League countries against the Saudi Arabia – Emirati coalition war on Yemen must have emboldened Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] as he continued in his quest for expansionist, brutish, dictatorial and authoritarian disposition across the Arabian Peninsula and beyond.

    When Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] was appointed Saudi Arabia Crown Prince about 18 months ago by Saudi Arabia monarch, King Salman. Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] promised major sweeping reforms across various Saudi Arabia spectrum’s, and raising the bar on; Foreign Direct Investment [FDI], Human Rights, Openness and Transparency.

    The western media hailed Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] as Saudi Arabia ‘reformer’, but as his unsatisfied appetite fir power began to manifest, Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] ignite the brutish, rash, reckless, totalitarian hegemony on the Saudi people, his nephews, Saudi Arabia businessmen, neighbours, and countries that stood his way. Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] came, he saw, and he was consumed by power!

    The ‘Vanishing’ of Jamal Khashoggi on October 2nd, 2018 inside the Saudi Arabia Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey signalled the setting of the sun on the ‘strangler & emerging tyrant’ of the Arabian Peninsula. Jamal Khashoggi ‘vanishing’ from the Saudi Arabia Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey as alleged was carried out by ‘Rogue Elements’ and ‘Interrogation Gone Wrong’ by Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] 15 ‘goons’ [some members of the ‘goons’ were said to be Saudi Arabia defense forces, Forensic expert and Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] personal body guards] that came from Saudi Arabia in two separate jets and left same day.

    The jets that brought these ‘goons’ were allegedly owned by Saudi Arabia royal court members. Jamal Khashoggi was once a close confidant of the Saudi Arabia ‘royal court’, but lost confidence in Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] dictatorial and authoritarian style.

    Jamal Khashoggi haven foreknowledge of Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] traits fled to US and had since remained in US and a ‘columnist’ with Washington Post until he was preparing formalizing his paper for a marriage to his Turkish girlfriend, Hatice Cengiz, who apparently waited for Jamal Khashoggi outside the Saudi Arabia Consulate in Istanbul on the day Jamal Khashoggi ‘vanished’ from the surface of the earth in what it is now been dubbed; ‘Investigation gone wrong’ & ‘rogue elements’ inside the Saudi Arabia Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

    Close Camera Television [CCTV] footage and Jamal Khashoggi apple wrist watch that was synchronized to the phone his girlfriend was holding outside the Consulate recorded the vivid scenario that took place and carried out. It took 13 days for Saudi authorities to allow Turkish Investigators access to the consulate for investigation. This was another diplomatic slapped on Saudi Arabia’s by allowing it’s sacred building to be accessed in relating to crime!

    Coming exactly one year after Panama Papers Maltese anti-corruption journalist, Daphne Caruana Galizia was killed in a car bomb attack, also Bulgarian TV Journalist Viktoria Marinova was murdered and raped in the northern city of Ruse shortly after leaving studio. Viktoria Marinova was said to be investigating European Union funds corruption case. Was Jamal Khashoggi’s case different? Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] must have being feeling uncomfortable with Jamal Khashoggi’s criticisms of his ‘dictatorial and autocratic’ styles across the world and Jamal Khashoggi’s criticisms of Mohammed Bin Salman silencing of Saudi Arabia media freedom of expression and free-press.

    The Saudi Arabia royal court finally allowed Turkish investigators into their Consulate in Istanbul for a face saving. US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo was dispatched to Saudi Arabia by US President, Donal Trump [Saudi Arabia closest ally] and his in-law Jared Kushner to meet the Saudi King on the possible unravelling of the ‘vanishing’ of Jamal Khashoggi from the Saudi Arabia Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. Theories of ‘rogue elements’ & ‘investigations gone wrong’ were propounded by US President, Donald Trump.

    US Congress have invoked ‘Magnitsky Act 22’ compelling US president to impose sanctions on Saudi Arabia, but Donald Trump has repeatedly cautioned this, taken into cognizance the proposed Saudi Arabia $110 billion arms deal it had with US. Donald Trump said, Saudi Arabia may looked elsewhere, possibly China and Russia to buy arms again Donald Trump hinted on protecting US job losses if sanctions was imposed on Saudi Arabia. UK, Germany, France had in equivocal terms expressed sadness as regards Jamal Khashoggi ‘vanishing’ from the Saudi Arabia Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

    The backlash of Jamal Khashoggi’s ‘vanishing’ has consumed the once ‘Strangler & Emerging Tyrant’ [with limitless power] of the Arabian Peninsula, Crown Prince, Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS]. Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] must have being taken aback by this backlash, his Saudi Arabia Future Investment Initiative Summit ‘Waters In the Desert’, October, 23rd, 2018 had suffered, as notable media giants and investors has pulled out; Richard Branson, Virgin Atlantic cancelled $1 billion investment talks also, Ford, JP Morgan, CNBC, CNN, Bloomberg, New York Times, Financial Times, Uber, Apple, Huffington & Washington Post has all cancelled their participation in the summit.

    Canada, Yemen, Qatar, & Jamal Khashoggi’s spirit must be smiling as their sweat, principle, aims, visions, prayers has being answered after-all that they have being vindicated that Saudi Arabia Crown Prince, Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] is indeed ‘Strangler & Emerging Tyrant’ of the Arabian Peninsula. Is Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] Marcus Junius Brutus statesman of ancient Rome who with Cassius led a conspiracy to assassinate Julius Caesar – 85- 42 BC]? ‘Et tu Jamal Khashoggi’?

    And the question still remains; Why, When, Who, What & How did Jamal Khashoggi ‘vanished’ from the Saudi Arabia Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey on October 12th, 2018?

    Jamal Khashoggi’s Spirit Lives On! Freedom of the Press – John Milton ‘Areopatigica’!
