Published

on

The cash reward promised for information about the killers of ex-lawmaker and president General of Nimo Community, Mr Frank-Anthony Igboka has been increased.

The Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano earlier promised a cash reward of N5 million through The Anambra State Commissioner of Police Mustapha Dandaura for anyone who could give useful information that could lead to the arrest of the killers of Igboka.

“Following the incident (killing of Igboka), the command under my watch launched an aggressive manhunt of perpetrators of this dastardly act which led to the arrest of the main kingpin, one Chigbo Anyaegbu a.k.a Transformer, aged 27 years.”

“They are Smart, surname unknown; Chukwunonso alias Nwasami; and Obinna Okafor. Suspects have all been declared wanted by the command and a cash reward of N5 million (each) was promised to anybody who provides useful information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects by His Excellency the executive governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano.”

“He was a brave and strong man, and criminals feared him while he was alive, and it is believed that his killers may be bad boys in the community, since he was shot dead two weeks ago in his community, Nimo.” Dandaura said.

The suspect, Anyaegbu, while speaking with journalists, said he was only invited by his friends to join them for an operation, but was not told that the operation involved the killing of Igboka.

Facebook suspends thousands of apps in response to Cambridge Analytica row

Published

Facebook Inc said, it has suspended tens of thousands of apps on the social networking platform, as part of the company’s ongoing app developer investigation it began in March 2018 in response to the Cambridge Analytica row.

The suspended apps are associated with about 400 developers, Facebook said, adding that it is not necessarily an indication that these apps were posing a threat to users.

Earlier this year, the company agreed to pay a record-breaking $5 billion fine to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to resolve a government probe into its privacy practices.

The FTC privacy probe was triggered last year by allegations that Facebook violated a 2012 consent decree and inappropriately shared information of 87 million users with British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica.

Facebook has since agreed to boost safeguards on user data and has put curbs on the amount of information that third-party developers can request from platform users.

“… We’re making progress. We won’t catch everything, and some of what we do catch will be with help from others outside Facebook,” the company said in a blogpost.
