Atiku son-in-law and lawyer has been arrested by EFCC.

Published

on

Nigeria’s main opposition chief, Atiku Abubakar, has alleged political persecution about a week after he lost presidential elections.

The former vice president took to Twitter to decry arrest of two allies, his son-in-law and lawyer. He said the two had been arrested because: “They are paying the price for supporting me.”

Local media reported that the duo were being held by the anti-graft body, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. The EFCC has yet to comment on the issue.



According to The Cable news portal, EFCC officials on Saturday arrested Atiku’s in-law Babalele Abdullahi, who serves as finance director of Atiku’s group of companies.

The operatives were said to have searched his residence as well as his office before arresting him. Days to the February 23 polls, Atiku’s lawyer Uyiekpen Giwa-Osagie was also picked by the anti-graft agency for alleged money laundering.

Atiku has rejected the outcome of the elections despite losing by close to four million votes to incumbent Muhammadu Buhari. Over the weekend, he announced a legal team set to challenge the results in court.

Atiku was an ally of Buhari in the then opposition coalition that defeated incumbent Goodluck Jonathan in 2015. He left the All Progressives Congress, APC, and rejoined the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and won the bid to represent it in the polls.

His previous record in the PDP was when he served as vice president for eight years under the first PDP president Olusegun Obasanjo. Atiku has since 2007 eyed the presidency but failed at each turn.

Chuch of England to Invest Billions in Cannabis

Published

One would think that weed and religion don’t go together, but a Leafly article by Natán Ponieman suggested otherwise in his write up.

In an exclusive conversation, Ponieman explained that, when you look at it from a historical perspective, “there is nothing in the basis of Christianity against medicine. Jesus himself was (and still is for many, today) a healer.

“Moderation seems to be the key to the enjoyment of non-medical cannabis in the Christian tradition,” 

“The default relationship one would normally trace between the big churches and prohibitionism has more to do with their historical role as political agents, than it has to do with any directive derived from their core value system.”

A few months after my conversation with Shavo, and Ponieman’s article came out, I met Joy Smith, a grandmother who went from preaching the Lord’s word as a Christian minister, to preaching the benefits of pure CBD as a hemp entrepreneur.

It seemed that, step-by-step, cannabis and Christianity were getting closer.

According to reports in the media, the Chief Revenue Officer for the zoo, when approached, said on Wednesday, that the said money, approximately six million, eight hundred and twenty thousand naira, was money realised as gate fee from fun-seekers who had visited the zoo during Sallah celebration  to watch the animals.

A local radio station in the state, Freedom Radio had reported on Thursday that one of the finance officers it spoke with had said that one huge Gorilla sneaked into their office and carried the money and ran away, where it went and allegedly swallowed the close to seven million naira.

Also, when asked, the Managing Director of the zoo, Kashekobo, confirmed the development to newsmen but, however, said that he had nothing more to say about it other than that the matter was under investigation.

 ” the issue is under investigations for now and I don’t want to say anything concerning the matter. Many journalists have met me on the issue but I don’t want to say anything. All I can say is that the money got missing.” 

Also, confirming the report, the Police spokesperson in the state, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, said the matter was under investigation.

It would be recalled that in February 2018, one Philomina Chieshe, a sales clerk with the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Benue state, had claimed that a huge snake swallowed N36m, which the board made from sale of scratch card.
