Former Bank PHB boss used embezzled N45m to pay church tithes – EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has accused a former managing director of Bank PHB, Mr Francis Atuche, of using depositors’ funds to pay N45 million in church tithes.
Lead prosecution counsel, Kemi Pinheiro, today made the accusation at the Lagos High Court, sitting in Ikeja, while leading in evidence a key witness, Mr Solomon Abolaji Ogunsola, a former staff of PHB Mortgages Limited. Atuche paid the money from an account of PHB Mortgage Limited.
Pinheiro presented documents in court, some of them e-mails sent as an order to release the sum of N35million to St. Monica Catholic church, Ibusa, Delta State, and another sum of N10million to another St. Augustine Catholic Church. Ogunsola told the court that Atuche sent the money to the two churches in Delta State because he hails from the state.
Ogunsola also admitted knowing two companies: Claremount Nigeria Limited and Claremount Asset Management. He said that Claremount Nigeria Limited had a call account with his bank and the account was owned by Atuche.
He explained that the only document on the call account’s file was a reference letter which bears Atuche’s name. The document was admitted as exhibit.
In addition, various transactions carried out by Atuche in his statements of account with Claremount Nigeria Limited and Claremount Asset Management Limited were read. Atuche had denied having anything to do with the two companies.
Justice Lateefa Okunnu admitted the accounts as exhibits.
The EFCC counsel also led in evidence, one Mr Andy Uzomor, another staff of PHB Mortgage Limited, who presented a 39-page document before the court as exhibit. The presentation of the document was opposed by lead defence counsel, Anthony Idigbe, who claimed that some of the documents had to do with a N20million transaction between his law chambers and Atuche. Idigbe urged the court not to admit the particular section as it will deny Atuche a right to a counsel of his choice. According to him, if the document was admitted either himself or his client will have to go into the witness box, which might force his chamber out of the case.
But Pinheiro insisted that Idigbe’s objections lacked substance in law. According to him, some of the documents pertained to an account that Atuche had disowned. Besides, he referred to Section 38, sub-section 1 of the EFCC Establishment Act which grants the EFCC power to seek and receive information from anybody. After listening to all their submissions, Justice Okunnu admitted the documents as exhibits and adjourned the case till October 4th, 2012.

Finding Love

The new guy always seems nice and shiny, but if you’re seeking perfection, you’ll never find it.

Looking for love?  Then why are you always finding the opposite?  Stop blaming the world and listen to me.  Here are the mistakes that many black women make when trying to find true love.  Pay attention, it might change your life.
1)   Keeping a list of rules:  Do you bring a set of rules and lists with you into every relationship?  If so, just know right now that every man you meet is probably going to come up short.  The new guy always seems nice and shiny, but if you’re seeking perfection, you’ll never find it.
2)   Being a bag lady:  If the last dog you dealt with defines how you’re going to deal with the next man, then just know that by preparing for dogs, you’re probably attracting them.
3)   Not knowing how to love a decent man when you meet one:  If you come into a relationship prepared to play stupid games, this probably means that you’ll run off any decent guy who comes into your life.
4)   Feeling pressured to hit certain benchmarks before a certain date:  You are not worse off than your friends because they’re all 27 with kids and a husband and you don’t have either.  The truth is that many of them aren’t happy anyway, and a lot of them have settled with bad men in order to fill their quota.  Just give it five years and you’ll see many of them in divorce court.
5)   Forgetting about the art of being nice:  A lot of black women teach each other to be mean because some of them are mean to each other.  Feminists teach you that being kind and sweet to a man means that you are giving in to him and makes you weak.  Here’s a news flash:  If you’re in love, you’re SUPPOSED to give in to one another.  Men like women who are nice.  Being evil is not sexy, even when you think you have a good reason for being an a**hole.
6)   Choosing flash over depth and substance:  He’s tall, handsome with a nice job.  So what.  Does he love you?  Is he a good person?  Does he have good values?  That’s what’ll make him your husband and not just another guy trying to get into your pants.
7)   No capacity to forgive:  If you allow one little thing to anger you to the point of being unable to forgive and move on, you’re basically killing everything that makes you beautiful.  Don’t do that.  Your man is going to make mistakes.  Prepare to forgive him to save your relationship.  Love is hard work, accept that.

Rihana and Chris Could This be Love? Sure It is.

Rihanna wants to help Chris Brown clear his name, and she's ready to defend him in court to do it!
As you may recall, the rapper is in trouble for their "domestic dispute" that took place three years ago, and — since an El Lay Judge revealed the rapper tested positive for pot on a random drug test he was given while partaking in community service in his home state of Virginia — he could be facing charges for that too!
Now, more than ever, RiRi is worried about Breezy's fate!
A source close to the situation says she's willing to do anything to help Chris out of this, revealing:
"Rihanna has spoken to Chris since his progress reporting hearing on Monday afternoon and offered her continued support. Rihanna told Chris she would go to court on November 1 for his court appearance and tell Judge Patricia Schnegg that she shouldn't set a hearing to decide if he violated terms of his probation because he has accepted responsibility for his actions and has apologized to RiRi on multiple occasions."
She wants the judge to forget about his fling with Mary Jane AND the infamous actions that landed him in probation!
Our source explains:
"Rihanna would also tell the judge that Chris isn't the same person now, as he was on that fateful night when he assaulted her. Rihanna doesn't care if she is criticized for standing by Chris, she genuinely loves him."Rihanna Wants To Defend Chris Brown In Court?


Tameka Foster and Usher attend the Quincy Jones Listen Up Foundation Q Prize Awards on January 24, 2007 in New York City. 

Usher opened up about his tumultuous relationship with Tameka Foster on the September 16 episode of Oprah's Next Chapter, and now his ex-wife has decided to share her side of the story

"I kind of just felt like it was time to clear a few things up," Foster, 41, explained to host Nancy O'Dell, 46, September 25. "I have been very guarded and protected."

Foster, a celebrity stylist whose clients included Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige, married Usher in 2007 when she was five months pregnant. The two are parents to sons Usher V, 4, and Naviyd, 3. After a lengthy and emotionally-charged custody battle, a judge awarded the R&B superstar primary custody of his children with Foster on August 24, 2012.

The warring couple briefly called a cease fire over the summer when Kile, Foster's 11-year-old son from a previous relationship, was fatally struck in the head by a jet ski.
"I'm still in shock," she said. "I think this will probably be the greatest pain I will ever experience, losing him. But, it gave me strength beyond measure and it made me determined to fight for my other [children]."

During her interview with Entertainment Tonight, Foster was also asked about Usher's alleged relationship with one of her bridesmaids. (During the  "Scream" singer's interview with Oprah Winfrey, 58, he insisted nothing physical happened until after he and Foster were separated.)
"He admitted to sleeping with one of the two. It was a very disappointing revelation. I had suspected it for some time," Foster told O'Dell. "I hate to say it, but I somewhat empathize with her. . .She fell into somewhat of a trap. I think that she got very close to him as a result of being my friend and I feel like he used it to his advantage

The hardest part of being a mom has been leaving Duke,” Rancic, 37, revealed in the latest issue of Life & Style, on stands Wednesday. “Being away from him is more difficult than I could have ever imagined.”

Still, Rancic — who welcomed Edward Duke on Aug. 29 via a surrogate — says she’s more than thankful for her husband, who has stepped it up in her time of absence.

 I love seeing Bill and Duke bonding,” she said. “There’s nothing sexier than a great dad.”

Aerial View Images Of Flooding Around River Niger In Lokoja

The images were released by the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, and shows the extent of the flooding in the city caused by the overflowing River Niger, which is virtually cutting off the Northern part of the country from the South.
A lot of small villages in Lokoja and Kogi will soon be wiped out if nothing is done soon. The flooding has left many dead, thousands homeless, and movement from one place to the other impossible.

The flooding started about two weeks ago after Cameroon released water from the Lagdo Dam.
The minister of works said that the level of water seen in the past two weeks has not been seen in the last 100 years.

The federal government has contracted three major construction companies to free the submerged Lokoja-Abuja highway from flooding and NEMA is currently camping thousands of displaced flood victims.

Ikechukwu Discloses The Reason Why He Is More Closer To Dbanj Than Don Jazzy

Alot has been said about World Famous Academy boss, Ikechukwu and Dbanj. Once upon a time, the news was the rapper gave Dbanj a beating which led to the breakdown of a business deal then between Ikechukwu’s WFA and now defunct Mo Hits which was co-owned by Dbanj.

However in an exclusive interview with Encomium magazine, the rapper discloses what most people don’t know about his closeness with the G.O.O.D Music act. Enjoy excerpts below:
“I have heard a lot about my relationship with D’banj. Some people call me his houseboy, bouncer, and the rest, but let me say this, I have been close to D’banj since day one. The first time I saw him was at Obi Asika’s house, when he was about signing to Storm Records…and if you’re observant, you would have discovered that we have similar features; he’s lepa just like me and we have same swagger. So we’ve created some kind of bond right from time which I was not opportuned to share with Don Jazzy. I only find people that find me, simple! Those that I am important to are those that are important to me. I am just chilling with D’banj and now that he’s making a stand abroad, it’s going to be stupid of me not to utilize the situation he already has. So, we are not just friends, we are also doing business”.

Arik Air Bars 27 People including Japheth Omojuwa & FAAN MD from Flying on its Aircrafts.

Japheth Omojuwa, a social media activist with a huge online following brewed up quite a storm when he took to Twitter and his website, some weeks ago to publicize how his iPad got missing on an Arik-Air flight.
With hash tags like #Arikaircriminals and #ArikWhereIsMyiPad, he made his grievance with the airline public.
Little wonder he was one of the people barred from flying on the airline.
Arik Air recently released a list of people barred from flying on any of its aircrafts for both domestic and international flights.
According to the airline, Japheth was barred “for giving Arik negative publicity on social media after losing his iPad on the airlines flight in June this year”.
Another prominent name on the list was the Managing Director of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, Mr George Uriesi. The reason given for Mr. Uriesi’s blacklisting was simply explained as “management decision.”
There are speculations that the decision might not be unconnected with the ongoing battle between the airline and FAAN. FAAN had earlier accused the airline of owing it over N7 billion, an amount which was defiantly denied. Arik Air insisted that it had been paying the Authority and only owed it over N1 billion.
According to Vanguard, the reasons given for the ban range from fighting Arik staff, disrupting Arik flight operations, to being declared wanted by security agencies.
The list which was last updated on September 24, 2012 said all those listed are banned ‘permanently’ from flying on Arik Air.
iREPORTS-NG lists the names of some of those barred from the airline and the reasons for the decision:
Omojuwa Japheth (for giving Arik negative publicity on social media after losing his iPad on the airlines flight in June this year) ; Messrs Victor-Ogbondah Elo,Lawal Lateef and Obayomi Osoba ( for insulting Arik staff); Obiriki James; Guanah Raymos; Messrs Moulim Buobacal, Muossa Baba and Al- Laranma Ibrahim( Somalians for terrorism); Warsame Ahmed Adbukadir, a Somalian for terrorism; Abdel Rahman Wala Eldin, a Sudanese for terrorism; Mohammed Murtada Awad Allad Ahmad, a Sudanese for terrorism; Bakare Lanre (former Arik employee over alleged bank fraud); Miss Davies- Fasan Adesola (for fighting with an Arik staff); Mrs Ejilasisi Kudirat Abike; Mr Musa Azeez Arisekola; Mr Adesugba Sijuade Adekoya; Oluseye Yakubu Idowu; Olomiwe Peter Chukwu; Nwachukwu Austin; Messrs Orji Daniel Ikechukwu and Uzoh Himan (over fraud in SA); Adesanya David; Ikukoyi Olufemi Olukay; and Grace Ikiruka Guobadia.
