4,000 Nigerian girls arrive Italy, may be forced into prostitution –IOM

The International Organisation for Migration on Friday said thousands of Nigerian migrant girls brought to Italy were in great danger of being forced into prostitution in Europe.

The number of female Nigerians, many of them minors, often naive about their fate at the hands of traffickers, arrived by sea in Italy surged over the past three years from 1,454 in 2014 to 11,000 in 2016.

The organisation’s spokesman, Flavio Di Giacomo, said at a news briefing in Geneva that some 4,000 Nigerian girls had arrived so far in 2017.

The UN agency had said that based on data collected at landing sites, it was estimated that 80 per cent of the girls were “potential victims” of trafficking as sex workers.

According to Giacomo, the girls are often told the trip is free.

“These girls, who are increasingly younger every year, are brought to Italy and to Europe for sexual exploitation.

“They are taken by traffickers and then they are forced to be prostitutes in the streets in Italy.

“And sometimes, as far as we know, these girls are also sent to other European countries such as Spain, Germany, France, and Austria.

“Many of the Nigerian girls are from poor families in Edo, who are psychologically manipulated during a voodoo ritual before leaving,’’ Di Giacomo said.

According to him, they are accompanied by a madam-linked to the traffickers on the long journey through Niger and Libya.

“The increasing number of minors arriving really do not have any idea even what prostitution is, what sex is.

“But, many of them understand the real purpose of this journey because many times they are forced to prostitute themselves in Niger, in Libya especially, in brothels there.

“So they understand they are not going to work as hairdressers.

“IOM officials try to intercept the Nigerian girls at landing points and inform them about the prostitution ring and their right to protection,’’ Di Giacomo said.

He said that the agency which had helped those who decided to flee the networks reported the cases of 425 girls in 2016 to police.

“A few days ago, we had the story of this young girl, a 17-year-old girl.

“She has been told she was going to work at a hair salon; she didn’t have any idea she was going to be forced to prostitute herself.

“It was only when she arrived she found out that it was not real.

“The job was a lie and she was forced to become a prostitute, which was the only way to pay off the debt of the journey.

“She was forced to be out on the streets for 12 hours a day.’’

Nigeria to export 400 locally made vehicles to Mali

The Charge‘d Affair of Nigera in Mali, Yara  Abdulsalam,  says an indigenous motor manufacturing company, Innoson Motors, has signed MoU with a Malian firm to export 400 locally made vehicles to Mali.

Abdulsalam made the announcement on Friday in Abuja when he led a delegation of businessmen from Mali to visit the Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama.

He said that during the week, Innoson Motors signed Memorandum of Understanding with Taxi Plus VIP, a Mali based transport company for the expansion of transport business in that country.

He said the development was the outcome of “Made-in-Nigeria products exhibition” held in Bamako in 2016.

He said that the exhibition was facilitated by Ginco Group, a Nigerian firm based in Mali to show case Nigeria’s potentials.

Abdulsalam said, “From the exhibition, Taxi Plus VIP approached the embassy that they wanted to import vehicles from China but, we told them that we have indigenous company in Nigeria that manufactures vehicles.

“They started talking with Innoson through Nigerian Export Promotion Commission and the deal was later finalised.

“Mali is the centre of Francophone countries and has boundary with eight countries.

“If the MoU materialises, it will positively affect all other countries and will increase Foreign Direct Investment in Nigeria."

EFCC nabs 20-year-old man for 5,400 Canadian dollars scam

A suspected credit card fraudster who allegedly masterminded the theft of 5,400 Canadian dollars from a catering entertainment outfit in Canada, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Spokesman of the commission, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, who disclosed this in a statement on Friday, identified the suspect as 20-year-old Yusuf Balogun Alabi, a Lagos resident.

Uwujaren said the bubble burst on Alabi after one Tony Adebero, a young Nigerian undergraduate of Thompson Rivers University in British Columbia, was arrested in Toronto, Canada, on charges of wire fraud.

Uwujaren said, “The youngster, who was expecting to receive his tuition from his dad, Mr Oyewole Adebero, did not suspect fraud when his account was credited by his bank.

“He, however, became worried when few days after, he got a call from his bank, TD Canada Trust Bank, asking for details of the person who made the transfer to his account, within 12 hours.”

The distraught student was said to have immediately called his father, who in turn contacted a Bureau de Change operator, Kassim Ishola, to whom he gave the money for transfer to his son.

The BDC operator reportedly mentioned one Idris Oni as the person he gave the money to transfer.

Idris, in turn, mentioned Alabi, the arrested suspect as the man who effected the transfer.

According to the EFCC spokesman, Alabi supplied the name, Bacon Jamie Cecil, as the person that actually wired the funds to Tony in Canada.

Unfortunately for Tony, Bacon Jamie Cecil was discovered to be a fake name prompting his arrest in Canada.

Uwujaren said the scam was brought to the attention of the EFCC through a June 2 petition filed by Tony’s father, Adebero.

In the petition, Adebero informed the anti-graft agency that his son was charged to court in Canada for engaging in internet fraud.

Uwujaren said; “Adebero explained that sometime in 2016, he approached his bank in Nigeria when he wanted to pay his son’s school fees in Thompson Rivers University BC Canada but had difficulty due to foreign exchange scarcity and the stiff forex regulations at the time.

“In the midst of the challenge, he met a church member, one Mrs Ibidola, who also had children schooling abroad.

“She introduced him to the Bureau de Change operator that would help transfer the funds to his son.”

According to him, Adebero said his son later informed him via telephone on Sept. 6, 2016, that his Canadian bank called him requesting for the details of the person who made the transfer to his account.

Tony reportedly told his father that the information was to be provided to the bank within 12 hours, as they suspected a fraudulent transaction.

Investigation by the commission, according to Uwujaren, led to the arrest of the prime suspect, Alabi.

“The EFCC found that Alabi, in an online transaction, contracted a caterer in Canada, Bruce Morris, while posing to be a lady by name Monica Donal, based in the United States of America.

“He, thereafter, initiated the fraud by placing a request for 100 boxes of lunch for a family reunion to Bruce Morris, owner of Kaizen Catering Entertainment, Brantford Canada.

“They arrived at an estimated figure, while Bruce raised an invoice for payment,” he said.

During interrogation, the suspect reportedly told investigators he had several credit cards in his possession, which he kept trying until one pulled through and about 11,000 Canadian dollars was transferred to the catering company.

Alabi said he instructed Bruce to transfer the sum of 5,400 Canadian dollars to Tony’s account in Canada, according to Uwujaren.

Tony’s father told the commission that he paid N1.4m, equivalent to 7,400 Canadian dollars, to the BDC operator being the money transferred to his son in two instalments of $2,000 and $5,400.

The commission spokesman said Alabi had made confessional statements to the commission.

Uwujaren said the suspect admitted that he perpetrated the fraud with the use of credit card numbers which he claimed to have accessed from an online site.

Alabi is presently in the EFCC custody, while investigations continue, he said.

ADIDAS AND UNITED LAUNCH 2017/18 THIRD KIT

- Manchester United reveal 2017/18 third kit, designed by a fan

- The kit was created and produced as part of adidas Football Creator Studio, a digital platform giving fans the chance to design shirts

adidas Football has today revealed Manchester United's third kit for the 2017/18 season, designed by a fan. It was produced using the adidas Football Creator Studio platform, channelling and celebrating the creativity of football fans all over the world.

The Creator Studio platform allowed fans the opportunity to design the third kits for United and five other clubs – FC Bayern Munich, Real Madrid CF, Juventus, AC Milan and Flamengo – the ultimate expression of fan creativity. 

All submitted kits were voted on by fans in a 'battlemode' that saw the most popular kits shortlisted to a top 100. The winners for each club were then chosen by an expert panel of some of the clubs' most iconic players and a design by Aniello Carotenuto came out on top at United.

The kit, which will be worn during the 2017/18 season, represents the powerful bond between the team and our fans. The light grey shirt is designed with a graphic showing the silhouette of the famous 'Holy Trinity' statue outside Old Trafford. The statue of club icons Sir Bobby Charlton, George Best and Denis Law represents a golden era for the club and this unique history was the inspiration for the new third kit. 

The kit is available to purchase through adidas and official club stores, including United Direct (store.manutd.com), from today - Friday 21 July.

For further information, please visit adidas.com/football or follow @adidasfootball on Instagram or Twitter to join the conversation.

TATU ready for premiere


A new film titled TATU will be premiered in Lagos on July 22.

The epic film , produced by Bank Of Industry and Patriarch Technologies,  in conjunction with FilmOne Production and FilmOne Distribution, will be unveiled at the Eko Hotels Convention Centre.

TATU, which was shot in locations across Lagos and Ibadan,  is a contemporary take on the classic African epic adventure story, a fast-paced action drama centered around the conflict arising from a mother’s quest to have a child and all the complications that follow.

According to the director, TATU has the potential to become another smash hit success.

“It is my third collaboration with cinematographer Akpe Ododoru and we spent a year developing this script from book to film,” he says.

The film features Segun Arinze, Desmond Elliott, Toyin Aimakhu-Abraham, Gabriel Afolayan, Rahama Sadau, Sambaza Nzeribe, Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi, Hafiz Oyetoro (Saka), Frank Dunga and a host of others.

The producers note that the premiere will bring together heads of many key sectors of the economy from finance to government and the diplomatic service.

“It will attract Nollywood stars and well wishers to celebrate the retirement of Dr. Abraham Nwankwo from a distinguishd public service career, as the Director General of the Debt Management Office,” they add.

CAF expands AFCON to 24 teams

The CAF Executive Committee on Thursday passed a resolution to increase the number of participating teams in the Africa Cup of Nations  from 16 to 24.

The change will take effect from 2019 when Cameroon hosts it, according to Citifmonline.

The 55 members of the committee met in Rabat, Morocco,  earlier this week to discuss the growth of African football and the possibility of expanding the tournament as well as changing the timing and scheduling of the showpiece competition.

The CAF President, Ahmad Ahmad hinted on Wednesday that some of the discussion at the symposium could be implemented within days and this is the first of many major changes expected to take place in the continent’s football.

This development would mean that the qualifying rounds for that tournament will be adjusted to accommodate all 24 teams, with the main tournament structure also taking a different shape.

The decision to increase the slots,  which had received mixed reactions from the football fraternity,  is said to be aimed at crafting new and innovative ways of making the competition more attractive.

Meanwhile, Cameroon risks losing out in hosting the tournament as it is still behind in its preparations.

Some have suggested that the tournament will be moved to Morocco if the West African nation is unable to meet the deadline to complete its preparations.

Yemi Alade vs Tiwa Savage, Who is the Queen Of Music In Nigerian.

From Fashion, Swagg, Dance move, Voice, Music, Stage Performance and Lifestyle.


Yemi Alade is the BIGGEST & MOST POPULAR Nigerian Female Singer across Africa!!!! Omo, this babe is huge across AFRICA!!! She has virtually toured the whole African countries, from her sold-out Stadium Concerts in Tanzania, Togo, Namibia etc… To her awards when she clinched the BEST FEMALE in Africa at the last MTV MAMA Award.


 A music promoter in Namibia was telling me sometime ago that Yemi Alade is the number one Nigerian Female artiste in Namibia and that her songs are on heavy rotation. She’s also very BIG in East Africa and also West African countries.

 Congrats Yemi, its not easy. I watched your career grow from 2009 during Peak Talent Show where u emerged the winner. Hard Work pays.
For the second year in a row, Nigerian singer Yemi Alade won the ‘Best Female Act’ award at the MTV MAMAs in South Africa.
But her victory has now led to a new comparison between her and Mavin singer, Tiwa Savage , who also won the award in 2014 and is often referred to as Nigeria’s best female act.
Is Yemi Alade’s back-to-back victory enough for her to take over Tiwa Savage’s crown? Are they now on the same level? Who is the Queen of Nigerian pop? Or is there even a basis for comparison?

Mourinho to treat Manchester derby as training session


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said he plans to treat Thursday’s exhibition match against Manchester City as a training session as the two Premier League rivals prepare to clash in Houston.

The two teams meet at the NRG Stadium — home of the Houston Texans NFL team — in the first ever edition of the Manchester derby to be staged overseas.

Mourinho, who will lock horns with City boss Pep Guardiola once more, insisted however he was not concerned with the result of the game.

“It’s nice for the US and US fans, it’s very good for the event. I think it’s very good for both clubs and there is always a little bit of rivalry, a bit of an extra ingredient but for me it’s a friendly,” Mourinho said.

“I’m not going to jump to celebrate a goal, or cry if we concede, it’s preparation for me. The European Super Cup is a match, West Ham is a match,” the Portuguese manager added.

Mourinho is likely to field two separate line-ups during the game, with one XI playing 60 minutes and a second XI 30 minutes.

In United’s two previous tour games — wins over the Los Angeles Galaxy and Real Salt Lake — he changed the entire line-up at half-time.

“It’s a competitive training session, a training session that you try to win but it’s not the most important thing,” he said.

“I know what I want and it’s to give minutes to my players, to improve, to make mistakes to repeat in training exercises to stop those mistakes and to make the new players try to understand their teammates.”

Mourinho meanwhile brushed off questions about former club Chelsea’s capture of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid earlier Wednesday, insisting he was happy with United’s high-profile signing of Romelu Lukaku last week.

“I’m not interested in what Chelsea FC does, really,” Mourinho said. “We got a big player, a player that I can compare with what he was a few years ago, because he worked with me for a few months and his development was very good.

“We have a player who is now a top player. You have to prove it at the highest level, he has to do it for United, in Champions League matches but he has amazing qualities.”

Mourinho meanwhile reiterated that United had not finished their transfer business, but conceded the market made doing business difficult, and he may scrap initial plans to sign four players during the window.

“Everybody knows I would like four players and I’m ready to go from four to three because the market is difficult, some clubs think the market is different from others,” he said.

“We are not a club that is ready to pay what the clubs want us to pay so I’m ready to go from four to three.”

Lai Mohammed denies FG’s plan to ban overseas production of films


The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has denied saying that the Federal Government will ban the overseas production of Nigerian movies and music.

Mohammed noted this on Tuesday evening while reacting to an outcry by artistes over reports saying he hinted at the ban when he visited the headquarters of the Copyright Society of Nigeria in Lagos.

During a briefing at the end of a two-day Creative Industry Financing Conference, with the theme ‘Financing the Film, Television and Music Industries,’ held at Eko Hotels, Victoria Island, Mohammed said FG would not tamper with the aspirations and rights of the artistes and producers.

He said,

“At COSON, I said that I would work to amend the National Broadcasting Commission’s code to ensure that if a product is designated a Nigerian product, it must be produced in Nigeria. I didn’t say that, henceforth, all music and films would or must be produced in Nigeria.

“All I said was that if a programme is designated as a Nigerian content programme, we will amend the code to ensure that it is produced in Nigeria. I didn’t say I’ll ban the production of Nigerian movies and videos overseas.”

Olusanya said that with the migration to a new name and brand, 9mobile promised to sustain and continuously provide innovative and value-adding propositions, which it had delivered since inception nine years ago.

“In our nine years of operations, we have remained at the forefront of innovation and take pride in consistently delivering superior experiences to our subscribers.

“We continue to establish meaningful partnerships with our customers and partners by providing platforms that support their goals and aspirations,’’ he said.

The CEO said that the new name and brand were a deliberate representation and confirmation of its Nigerian heritage.

He said that the new identity was another phase of the telecommunications company’s evolution over nine years of operations in Nigeria.

Olusanya said that though the company’s name and brand changed, the values on which it operated remained the same.

He said that the new logo represented resilience and continuity, particularly of digital technology and continued impact on communication and human interactions.

According to him, being a number-themed logo reflects the network’s futuristic slant.

“The colour green, both its light and dark variants, reflects vibrancy, dynamism, life and youth, as well as the brand’s ‘Nigerianness’.

“With the launch of our new brand, our commitment to providing our subscribers with best-in-class telecommunications services continues.

“We live in a digitalised world and 9mobile is positioned to deliver more platforms, products and services, using the power of technology.

“The vivacity of our new brand is an affirmation of our creativity and the recent launch of value adding services, such as our BlazeOn and Kwikcash platforms, are testaments to this,’’ he said.

Olusanya said that over the years, the telecommunications company had built a strong network, which better-positioned 9mobile to continue delivering innovative solutions.

He said that the values of innovation, customer-centricity and quality of service remained its guiding principles, even as the new management focused on driving efficiency and steering growth.

The Chief Finance Officer, 9mobile, Mrs Funke Ighodaro, said that the immediate focus of the business was to drive value for the benefit of its customers.

According to her, rebranding has commenced at all of the company’s offices, Experience Centres, online and physical touch points, to facilitate seamless integration.

She assured that 9mobile would guard its position as the most customer-centric and leading innovative telecommunications company in Nigeria.

Solanke shines as Liverpool beat Palace in Hong Kong

New signing Dominic Solanke came off the bench to score as Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in a preseason game in Hong Kong on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old suggested he could prove a summer bargain at just $4 million as he linked up well with fellow striker Divock Origi, who also got on the scoresheet in the Premier League Asia Trophy win.

“It’s been a smart move for him and for us,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp told reporters.

“He saw the opportunity and we could see it also. You could see immediately he is a smart player. He’s a skilled boy and we are happy about this. We will help him all we can.”

Origi set up the first goal for Liverpool on the hour mark with a clever back-heel that found Solanke unmarked and the teenager made no mistake, finishing coolly in the stifling Hong Kong heat.

Origi then rifled home Liverpool’s second in the 79th minute, to the delight of a crowd of 40,000.

Klopp’s new-look front line proved a welcome distraction for the German coach following reports that Leipzig had rejected a huge bid of $86 million for star midfielder Naby Keita.

Klopp bristled when asked about the Keita situation as rumours circled that the Guinea international’s agent had been spotted in Hong Kong.

“Are we in Macau?” asked Klopp in reference to the world’s largest gambling hub, situated just across the Pearl River Delta from Hong Kong.

“What do you know? Sixty-six million (pounds) turned down today? I don’t think about this.

“Today both teams played good football,” added Klopp, turning his attention back to events on the pitch.

“In the second half we made some changes and we scored — nice. We changed the formation and it was nice to watch.”

Liverpool will face Leicester City in the Asia Trophy final on Saturday after the Foxes won the earlier match 7-6 on penalties over West Bromwich Albion following a 1-1 stalemate in normal time.

New signing Jay Rodriguez gave West Brom the lead with a stunning strike after nine minutes, only for Riyad Mahrez to squeeze the ball past Ben Foster to level things up midway through the first half.

JTF kills four bandits in shootout

Simon Utebor, Yenagoa

The troops of the Joint Military Task Force in the Niger Delta, Operation Delta Safe, on Wednesday killed four suspected bandits in a gun duel during an attack on a military house boat.

The Commander, OPDS, Rear Admiral Apochi Suleiman, made the disclosure at a news conference at the outfit’s headquarters at Igbogene, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

Suleiman, represented by the Deputy Force Commander/Land Component Commander, Brig.-Gen.  Kevin Aligbe, however, said that four soldiers were injured while an unnamed civilian lost his life in the shoot-out between the troops and the bandits.

The deceased civilian is said to be a boat driver.

The commander said, ”Some faceless criminals attacked own troops deployed in Tuma House Boat in Rivers State about 4.30am on Wednesday.

”The bandits were repelled by vigilant troops and four bandits lost their lives. Other bandits suffered heavy casualties while a few of them ran into an adjoining creek.

”Efforts are ongoing to fish them out and ascertain the actual numbers of the criminals killed during the duel.

”Unfortunately, four soldiers were injured while one civilian died. Let me reiterate that the OPDS will do everything within the law to crack down on these criminals and their sponsors wherever they are.”

Suleiman also expressed sadness over militants’ attack on troops on static duty on July 13 at Ogbouabagbene community in Bomadi Local Government Area of Delta, resulting in the death of a soldier.

He lamented, ”The miscreants, using the cover of darkness, opened fire on our troops and killed a soldier, injured a personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and the Nigeria Police.

”The criminals in the process carted away some equipment.”

The Pursuit Of Happyness (2006)

From a person who didn’t even have clean clothes to get interviewed, Chris Gardner zeroed his willful dream. Homeless at times, Chris never let his son slip through into the dark corner of poor society, and groomed himself with a struggle so aspiring for his son. All he wanted was to keep his son happy by choosing the righteous path of infinite hard work, humility and “never say die” attitude. A transition so epic is a must watch for every young aspire

Life is Beautiful (1997)

The Father-son story, is yet another brilliant tale teaching, how to sail through the storm of survival. Stunned by an abrupt holocaust, Guido (The Father) is pretending that the whole disaster is just a game plot made for them and they will find a way and eventually they do, in the end. Again the unconditional love for his son and wife leads him and his son out of trouble in a lessoned story.

The Lion King (1994)

It’s the most adorable childhood memory of anyone now in his or her thirties. The animation film still dwarves countless of animation movies we see today. Not because of the jungle rules and mini-battles, but the wisdom of a king and the selfless duty he paid. A perfect recipe for the toddlers.

Life of Pi (2012)

I envy this, not because of the adventurous itinerary of Pi, but a rather deeper connection with nature and God he had. It takes us beyond the technological and monetary traps to show the spiritual and inexplicable relations with the earth and how we are the indistinct part of it.

The Social Network (2010)

More startups than ever are developing today and still no bigger than the Facebook. Excelling through the conventions of social networks, the college grad dropper spent six years in building an empire that is nearly impossible to top. Albeit, the barriers were both tasteless and disheartening, including a lawsuit filed by his dear friend. Still, the enormous success of Mark fades away anything hostile.

Dead Poets Society (1989)

A school so famous for their conventional regimes and regulations has a new unorthodox entrant. That teacher quickly realizes the urge of innovation which leads to unorthodox methods strongly criticized by the school and parents. But eventually, on the day that mattered, the students display the wisdom of him.

Also known as Shapley-Curtis debate, named against the two debaters and astronomers of that time.The documentary is a real debate happened in 1920 between great independent thinkers, who challenged the laws of physics and space research with their own logics.

Anambra to commence rice export in 2018


The Acting Programme Manager of Agricultural Development Programme, Anambra, Mr Jude Nwankwo says plans are underway to commence export of rice from the state in 2018.

Nwankwo disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Awka.

“By the grace of God, Anambra will commence rice export after our harvest this year’’, he said.

He assured that the state will produce more than 500,000  tonnes of rice in the 2017 harvest year based on projections from the field.

He said that the figure would be 300, 000 higher than what was recorded in 2016.

“In 2016, we projected 180, 000 metric tonnes of rice, but we surpassed it by 20, 000. In 2017 our target is to produce 500, 000 metric tonness of rice, but the information from the field indicates that the figure will even go higher again’’, he said.

He said that more rice farmers were being supported by government to cultivate rice in Orumba North, Ayame­lum, Awka North, Anam­bra East and Anambra West Local Government Areas and other communities across the state.

“We distributed hybrid FERO 44 rice, maize, cassava and yam to farmers, in addition to huge support the state gave to vegetable farmers who already are exporting pumpkin and bitter leaf to markets in America and Europe.

Many communities in Anambra such as Owusi, Omasi, Omor, Ifite-Og­wari, Enugu-Abo, Ufuma and Umuekete-Aguleri, among other communi­ties have enormous potentials for commercial rice farming.

Nwankwo said a more cheering development in the state was that more youths especially graduates are now showing serious interest and passion in farming due to evident prospect in commercial agricultural ventures.

“ In Anambra now, the involvement of youths in agriculture is affecting rural/urban migration. Hardly do I spend up to one hour in my office without receiving youths coming to ascertain how they can establish one agricultural venture or another.

“The state currently has more than 2, 000 registered Farmers Cooperative Societies and many jobs and wealth are being created in the sector in the state’’, he said.

The Anambra ADP boss noted that the state is practicing e-agriculture which enables information on agricultural activities to be easily generated and transmitted to the state agricultural data unit.

On Meteorological Agency (NiMet) prediction that Anambra will be among states to record flooding which  may lead to poor  harvest, Nwankwo allay the fears insisting that it would not affect plants in the area.

“We already have the records of communities with high risk for flooding; our agricultural extension officers guided farmers from such locations to strictly adhere to agricultural calendar.

“And so farmers in these places like Ogbaru and FADAMA communities would have harvested their crops before the flooding will occur this time’’, Nwankwo noted.
