Court jails three oil thieves in Lagos
A Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos State, has convicted and sentenced three men Edward Alade, Emmanuel Amqawei and Kennedy Segbenu to one year imprisonment each for illegally dealing in petroleum products.
The defendants were arraigned before the court on 3 July 2020 by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on three-count charges bordering of illegally dealing in petroleum products.
The counts read: “MT MABOG, Edward Francis Alade, Amqawei Emmanuel, Kennedy Segbenu, Rapheal Odusanya (At Large), Ajuluwatan Abner (At Large), Okoro George Atang (At Large), Kalu Umeh Ikeng (At Large), and Okorodudu Lucky (At Large) on the 22nd January, 2020, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, conspired amongst yourselves to commit an offence to wit: dealing in 330 metric tonnes of petroleum products without appropriate license and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 3(6) of the Miscellaneous Offences Act, CAP M17, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 and punishable under Section 1(17) of the same Act.”
“MT MABOG, Edward Francis Alade, Amqawei Emmanuel, Kennedy Segbenu, Raphael Odusanya (At Large), Ajuluwatan Abner (At Large), Okoro George Atang (At Large), Kalu Umeh Ikenga (At Large) and Okorodudu Lucky (At Large), on the 22nd January, 2020, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, without appropriate license attempted to export 330 metric tonnes of petroleum products and you thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 1(17) of the Miscellaneous Offences Act CAP M17, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.”
The defendants pleaded “guilty” to all the charges, with Amqawei, captain of the ship, taking the guilty plea for the MT MABOG vessel complicit in the crime.
In view of their pleas, EFCC prosecutor, Kamil Bashir, called the prosecution witness, Remedy Yange, an operative of the Commission, to review the facts of the case.
Led in evidence by Bashir, the witness told the court that the Nigerian Navy, NNS Beecroft Apapa, petitioned the EFCC alleging that the defendants were illegally dealing in petroleum products.
The defendants were arrested on January 22, 2020 and handed over to the Commission for investigation and possible prosecution.
“Preliminary investigation was carried out by contacting NIMASA, and Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), Yange told the court that the reply from the DPR indicated that “the vessel doesn’t have license to deal in petroleum products or have naval clearance.”
The petition, defendants’ statements, hand-over note of the Navy to the EFCC and the report of the DPR were tendered in evidence and admitted by the court as Exhibits 1-4.
Based on the evidence before the court, the trial judge Justice Rilwan Aikawa found them guilty of all the counts.
The counsel for the defendants, pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy, noting that his clients were first-time offenders.
He also prayed the court to fine the vessel, MT MABOG, instead of ordering its forfeiture.
However, the prosecutor, opposed the prayers of the defence counsel, saying, “It is standard practice that vessels involved in such crime should be forfeited to the Federal Government along with its contents.”
In his judgment, Justice Aikawa sentenced the defendants to one year imprisonment each on all counts. Their sentences will run concurrently from the date of their arrest.
The Judge further ordered the forfeiture of the MT MABOG vessel to the Federal Government along with the cargo onboard and any other property found in the vessel.

STOP COMPLAINING AND START CREATING! - Ronald Kenneth
You probably must have heard this a thousand times, so you'd want to skip it but....
Let me tell you a short story!
In 2015, I thought heard of how to push my message to the world, teach what I know and create a following. I just learnt a few skills and I was eager to let the world learn from me.
At the time, the cliché was having an invite to speak about your area of passion at a renowned conference.
Well, nobody called on me!
I decided to package my thoughts and push it out!
I CREATED A PLATFORM FOR MYSELF!!!
The platform was what I needed at the time and getting speaking gigs was one of the ways I thought I could push and build confidence. So, I created the platform for myself, mounted the podium and started preaching my message!
BEFORE THE BIG STAGES COME FOR YOU, CONSTRUCT YOUR OWN STAGE WITH WHAT YOU HAVE AND START PREACHING YOUR MESSAGE. SOON ENOUGH, THE BIG STAGES WILL COME CALLING!
I hope you get the point now?

What you don't know about the UEFA Champions League
You watch and enjoy the UEFA Champions League. You cherish the teams, and even have a favourite among them. You cheer your favourite team enthusiastically, and feel bad whenever it loses or performs poorly in a match. You criticize or praise the players passionately as though you are an official stakeholder of the club. What a scenario!
However, I bet you don't know much about the UEFA Champions League anthem. No doubt, it's a lovely song, and sounds like a religious hymn. But there's more to that.
The lyrics of the anthem were written by Tony Britten in 1992 (based on George Frideric Handel's song, Zadok The Priest). They comprise 18 lines in UEFA's three official languages: English (6 lines), French (6 lines) and German (6 lines).
The UEFA Champions League (UCL) is an annual club football competition organized by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) and contested by top-division European clubs, deciding the competition winners through a group and knockout format.
Though introduced in 1955 as the European Champion Club's Cup when it was a straight knockout tournament open only to the champions of Europe's domestic leagues, it has since been expanded in 1992 when it took its current name, and while most of Europe's national leagues can still only enter their champions, the strongest leagues now provide up to four teams.
A total of 32 teams are drawn into eight groups of four teams and play each other in a double round-robin system. The eight group winners and eight runners-up proceed to the knockout phase that culminates with the final match, and the winner automatically qualifies for the following year's Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.
Besides the FIFA World Cup, the UEFA Champions League is indeed most interesting football tournament on earth!

Student Union President Of Ilaro Polytechnic Threatens To Commit Suicide After Being Arrested For Alleged Cultism
Adegboye Emmanuel Olatunji, President of Students Union Government of Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro, Ogun State, has threatened to commit suicide after he was arrested and charged to court for allegedly being a member of a cult group.
Recall that Olatunji and one Olarewaju Taiwo were on February 11 arrested by men of the Ogun State Police Command for cultism.
Shortly after their arrest, the Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the anti-cult section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation.
In a suicide note posted on his Facebook page, the student body President lamented that he was being falsely accused because he raised the alarm over financial impropriety of the school adminstration and for calling out anti-student policies.
Olatunji wondered why no one had come to rescue him from the alleged trumped-up charges by the police, which had left a psychological toll on him.
The post reads, "Glory be to God for this is probably the last breathe in my nostrils, no matter how faint it may seem. More importantly, this may be the last thing I write since my hope to write statement of accounts, proffer economic solutions to Nigeria's financial problems has been dashed and shattered by the powers that be. I accepted to study Banking and Finance to fulfill my dreams but all I live to write now is suicide note.
"I was arrested on the 9th of February, 2020 and got transferred to the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters, Eleweran, Ogun State. I was detained for 144 hours before being charged to court finally on the 17th of February, 2020.
"It's being 114 days now since my case got adjourned, and to my utmost dismay, no individual or group has done anything to revamp my hope.
"They say if you are silent in the days of adversity, you have taken the side of the oppressor. Now the question is, Who is raising a voice in my favour?
"Is it a crime to stand against the annihilation of the management against the students that gave me a mandate to defend their interest?
"Is it a crime for me to object the hike in accommodation price in the interest of striving for Nigerian students?
"Is it a crime for me to send a red signal to the management in their quest to increase school fees, while pointing them to other means of IGR to execute their projects?
"Let no one mourn me when I finally pass on into the luminary realm, for when I needed the support of activists, comrades, stakeholders, and sane individuals in the society to make me sail this trying time, no one, I mean no one was seen."
Abimbola Oyeyemi, Ogun State Police Command spokesperson, in his reaction to the note accused the student body President of trying to whip up sentiments, adding that it is not the business of the police if he commits suicide or not, Vanguard reports.
He said, “That he (Olatunji) wants to commit suicide is not the police business. It is none of our business.
“He (Olatunji) was arrested for alleged cultism, he has been charged to court and the case is still in court. So, if he says he is innocent, he should go and defend himself in court.
“Anybody that wants to kill himself doesn’t need to tell everybody about it.
“He is only trying to whip up sentiment, unnecessary sentiment at that. He has been charged to court, so let him prove his innocence in court."
