The commercial motorcyclist, who resides in Lagos state, said he is yet to come to terms with the reality of his wife’s confession.

Yaqub Ganiyu

A father of four,  Yaqub Ganiyu, has narrated how he reacted after his wife of 17 years revealed that he is not the biological father of their 14-year-old daughter.

In an interview with Vanguard, Yaqub, a commercial motorcyclist, who resides in Lagos state, said he is yet to come to terms with the reality of his wife’s confession. According to him, he fainted twice out of shock when his wife broke the news.

Speaking in his one-room apartment on Matomi Street, Alagbado, a border town between Lagos and Ogun states,  the father of four said his wife informed him that a neighbor who has relocated to Germany is the father of their daughter.

“I met Muridia  17 years ago when she was an apprentice.  I assisted her financially until she mastered the skill. Thereafter, we started dating and living together. I brought her to Lagos, from Otu Village, Oyo State, to set up a business for her.  

We are blessed with four children, a daughter and three sons – aged  14, 8 and 4 years and three months respectively.


Initially, things went smoothly in the family while I was working as a truck operator.  At a point, I lost that job. I started riding a motorcycle in order to put food on the table.

Recently, I  noticed that my wife started behaving strangely.  I kept calm to allow peace reign until she brought a Tecno-5 Phone home.  When I asked where she got it from, she gave a flimsy reason.  I also noticed she had been communicating with a man whose identity I did not know. I had to seize the phone.

About a month ago, she woke me up at midnight and told me that I was not the biological father of our 14-year-old daughter.  She said her former boyfriend who lives in Germany is the biological father of the child. You won’t believe that this same man and I were once neighbors before he travelled abroad.

I fainted out of shock and disbelief, twice. It was neighbours that resuscitated me. What baffled me was that the man she claimed to be the biological father is a relative and an old friend of mine. His father has two wives, one of them is my aunt.

I later got to know that things were not going smoothly with him. When they enquired to know the cause spiritually, it was revealed that he had a child somewhere and that until he accepts the paternity of the child, there won’t be any solution to his issue.

Initially, I thought my wife was out of her senses. I  contacted her family members to pray for her so that she could get well but I didn’t know she had other plans.

Two weeks ago, she reported the matter with So-Safe Corps at Abule-Iroko, Ogun State. I was arrested and detained by the Corps. Its officials ordered me to pick up my belongings and leave our one-room apartment.

’It did not end there, they ordered me to return the phone  I seized to her and pay  N5,000 weekly, for the family upkeep. I have been homeless since then. The attention of both families have been drawn to the matter but from all indications, Muridia’s family members are in support of her action. I have an aged mother and an elder brother who are not medically fit to intervene.

The man my wife claimed is the father of my daughter said I should stay far away from her or face the consequences, boasting that he has the financial muscle to deal with me. I used to have three motorcycles but sold them to enable me to fend for my family. The one I am currently using was bought on hire purchase.”   


When interviewed, Muridia said she was indeed pregnant for another man when she met Yaqub.

“When I discovered I was six weeks pregnant, I told Teslim about it but he sent me away and asked me to terminate it.

Luckily for me, Yaqub walked into my life and slept with me. A few weeks later, I told him I was pregnant for him, he accepted paternity and we pulled resources together to rent an apartment. Teslim and I were in the village while Yaqub was visiting from Lagos.   

I am a hairdresser but our stay together had been hellish as Yaqub has no tangible source of income to fend for the family.

Several attempts to walk away from the marriage were unsuccessful as he tactically tied me down with pregnancy. This is the fourth rented apartment I have paid for but he always disrupts my chances of staying alone.

One day, I got a call from Teslim’s friend, who requested to know what happened to the pregnancy of 15 years ago,  I did not give him any response.

I was in church one day when Teslim’s relative sent a Tecno-5 phone to me because mine was faulty. Teslim called me to say he was in Germany but that settling down maritally had been difficult. He told me that upon divination, he was told to go and claim the paternity of the baby he abandoned in order to have a settled life.

Two weeks ago, Yaqub and I had a quarrel in my shop. Neighbours intervened by contacting the So Safe Corps which effected his arrest.

My uncle and other members of my family are aware of this matter. There are moves to conduct a DNA test to ascertain the biological father of my daughter, Zainab”

President Buhari, Hanifa

President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the murder of Hanifa Abubakar, the five-year-old school girl whose body was discovered in a shallow grave in Kano after near two months.

In a statement released by his media aide, Garba Shehu, the President in the same breath praised the work of the police and the secret service in unraveling the mystery behind the disappearance of Hanifa, and particularly for the arrest of her teacher and his other accomplices suspected of the child’s kidnap and murder.

President Buhari said the family and the whole nation which followed up on Hanifa’s travail every day since her disappearance in December last year were hoping for the girl to have been rescued alive and well, adding however that the very thorough and painstaking detective operation by the law enforcement bodies, leading to the discovery of the corpse and the arrest of the suspects who have already made confessions was commendable, calling it an achievement that should instill more public confidence in the authorities.

“When breakthroughs like this happen, people will talk differently of law enforcement,
” said the President.

President Buhari prayed for the repose of the soul of the little school girl and urged her parents to bear the sad loss with courage and fortitude in God.

The President urged the Police and Ministry of Justice to uphold the integrity of the detective work that busted the case by preparing well and presenting a good case that will earn the respect of the court.

You Killed Innocent People, We Do Not Have Camps in Anambra - IPOB to Nigerian Army

Powerful accused the Army of criminal misrepresentation of facts against IPOB and ESN claiming that arrested criminals were ESN members.

 
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said persons killed by the Nigerian army in Lilu area of Anambra state are not members of the secessionist group.
 
IPOB said it has no camp in Lilu,Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State, where soldiers revelled in Tuesday that it killed suspected operatives of the group.
 
The Nigerian Army Public Relations Officer, Brigadier General Nwachukwu had in a statement on Tuesday said it dislodged a notorious stronghold of IPOB and its armed affiliate, Eastern Security Network (ESN) in the area, in a joint operation.
 
But denying the claims by the Army, the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful in a press statement said the group had no camp in the area.
 
Powerful accused the Army of criminal misrepresentation of facts against IPOB and ESN claiming that arrested criminals were ESN members.
 
The statement reads in part, “We wish to reiterate, that IPOB and ESN operatives have no camp in Lilu in Ihiala LGA of Anambra State.

“We are not militants and criminals and don’t need any camp in Ihiala LGA. We are identifiable and we are all over Biafra land and IPOB branches in the Diaspora.

“Nigeria security agencies are using the hatred they have on the people of Biafra particularly IPOB and ESN members to unleash cruelty on the people living in these communities where they suspect that criminals are taking refuge.

“If criminals take refuge in any community in Biafra land, that doesn’t make them IPOB members or ESN operatives. We have also not said there are no more criminal gangs in Biafra land just like every other country even in the advanced Western nations. But we won’t accept the tagging of every Criminal element found in Biafra as an IPOB member or ESN operative.

“Recall that some of these criminals were already mentioned by IPOB leadership sometime during a broadcast. IPOB leadership said these criminals were unleashing mayhem on innocent citizens in some communities. Some of these hoodlums were a creation of wicked politicians in their desperation to discredit IPOB and ESN.”

Jonathan Ogbe, a member of the National Youth Service Corps attached to the Asamabiri Community Primary School in Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, has abandoned his one-year compulsory national service after being accused of defiling a 12-year-old pupil.

The accused corps member has since refused to pick up his discharge certificate to avoid being arrested and handed over to the police for possible prosecution.

Spokesperson for the NYSC in Bayelsa, Mathew Ngobua, confirmed that Ogbe had absconded after news of the incident came to light.

He said “The accused has abandoned service and all his numbers and that of his next of kin are not reachable. He has not even picked up his discharge certificate for service.”

According to father of the victim, Nelson Gbaranbiri, his wife brought his attention to some strange discharge found in the underwear of his 12-year-old daughter while doing her laundry.

He said, “My wife brought my attention to the stains and discharges she usually finds in the pants of my daughter. When I asked about what happened to her private part, she told me that ‘uncle’ will beat her.”

In a petition forwarded to the Commissioner of Police in the state and dated September 3, 2021, counsel to the victim’s family, A.O. Aniso, stated, “When the accused corps member was confronted with the victim’s claim, he admitted being responsible and pleaded for forgiveness.

“And seeing that the minor was physically distressed and needed medical attention, the parents took her to the community medical centre and their worst fears were confirmed.

“After the medical confirmation, the family again confronted the corps member of his wrongdoing and he apologised profusely even offering N50, 000 to cover medical treatment. This is a criminal act and he has brought great shame to my client’s family.”

Chairperson of Gender Response Initiative Team in the state, Dise Ogbise, said they will work with the police to ensure justice prevailed on the matter. 

“As GRIT, Bayelsa State, we will not relax and we will give the child all the necessary legal and psychological support needed,” Ogbise said

Nigerian actress and filmmaker, Toyin Abraham has opened up on her struggles in the past which turned her into a new person.

Toyin in an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, said she fell into depression sometime in her life and had to seek the help of a counsellor.


Recounting her experience, Toyin revealed that being depressed made her abandon her family and led her into smoking cigarettes which is unacceptable in her Christian home.

The 39-year-old actress said, “At some time in my life my manager had to get me a counsellor because I was depressed but lived in denial. I was not happy and very scared of life.

“It was that bad that I thought of swimming or jumping from the third mainland bridge and hoping someone will save me.

“I confided in people and they used it against me, I had fear of the unknown, my thought filled with negative things.

“It was hard for me to trust people then because the people I had around me didn’t know how to keep things secret.

“I am from a Christian home but had to avoid them because I started smoking cigarettes.

“I detached myself from my family because I thought I was going to die soon and didn’t want them to miss me.”


She, however, took responsibility for her life after she got a new manager and a counsellor and has since continued to soar higher in her life and career.

“I had to change everybody around me, had a different mentality to rediscover myself.

“When you’re depressed you don’t know what you’re capable of doing, Immediately I overcame all of that, I redesigned my life to be my best version.

“I got over my fears with the help of my manager and counsellor. You have to go through fire to have the finest things,
” the actress concluded.

Lagos Commercial Bus Operators To Pay N292,000 Annually Fee To State Government

Lagos Commercial Bus Operators To Pay N292,000 Annually Fee To State Government

The new levy by government is aside tickets issued by the National Union of Road Transport Workers across the state.

 

 
A new transport levy has been introduced by the Lagos State government.
 
According to Sahara Reporters, commercial bus operators in Lagos will now pay N292,000 annual fee to the state government under a new Consolidated Informal Sector Transport Levy.
 
The new levy by government is aside tickets issued by the National Union of Road Transport Workers across the state.
 
The move is designed to harmonise dues collected by government from commercial motorists at parks and garages.
 
Commissioner for Finance in the state, Dr Rabiu Olowo, asserted that the levy pegged at a flat rate of N800, covered monies for local government, clearing of waste from the motor parks, which was being paid to the Lagos State Waste Management Agency, and pollution, dues which were collected by Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency, among others.
 
"Personal income taxes of the drivers will also be deducted from the N800 levy which commences with immediate effect," Olowo said.
 
According to the report, each commercial bus driver was expected to pay N800 daily, which accumulates into N24,000 monthly and N292,000 in a year with this harmonised levy.
 
Confirming the development, Chairman of Lagos State Chapter of NURTW, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as ‘MC Oluomo,’  who noted that the union in collaboration with the Road Transport Workers Union had approached the state government to consolidate the fees collected by different LGAs and agencies to make collection easier for government.
 
MC Oluomo explained that the new development affects only government levies but has nothing to do with the union dues charged.
 
However, Special Adviser to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Transportation, Mr Toyin Fayinka, said that the development was the phase one approach towards total restructuring of the transport sector; saying it is expected to bring sanity to motor parks in line with best practices globally.
 
He explained that money collected as levies before now were lost to unknown agents. 
 
Stressing that research had shown that an average commercial bus paid at least N3,000 as due per day while some buses paid as high as N8,000 to N9,000.
 
"The new development is a form of revenue assurance, that would have a strong implication on reduction of levies paid by bus drivers at different points/parks before now.
 
"It will drastically reduce the suffering of the people as it is expected to reduce the cost of road transportation," he added.

Ojudu stressed that his decision not to support Tinubu was based on personal conviction, adding that any coercion to do otherwise would not be democratic.

 

Ojudu
Ojudu
 
The Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Babafemi Ojudu has cried out over threats sent to him after he openly said he will not support Bola Tinubu's presidential ambition.
 
Tinubu is the national leader of the All Progressives Congress. He recently declared interest to contest in the 2023 presidential election.
 
Ojudu stressed that his decision not to support Tinubu was based on personal conviction, adding that any coercion to do otherwise would not be democratic.
 
In a statement on Tuesday, Ojudu, who works in the Office of the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), said his refusal to support the presidential aspiration of the former Lagos State governor should not portray him as a betrayer.
 
According to the statement titled, ‘Principled Political Choices are not Betrayal’, the presidential aide said though he had benefited from Tinubu’s kindness in the past, he was not made by the APC leader.
 
Ojudu wrote, “The idea that everyone who has related with Tinubu and disagrees with him on this Presidential bid is a traitor and a betrayal is puerile. Many of us, his associates, were not made by him as you also want the world to believe.
 
“We were already made before meeting him and in the cause of relating we gave one another a helping hand… So, on this matter of 2023 I wish him (Tinubu) well but I cannot in good conscience give him my support or cast my vote for him in the coming primary. It is my right. I am above 60 years of age for God sake. I almost died seeking this inalienable democratic rights, held up in detention and severally tortured. Your god is not my god.
 
“Let no one think he can browbeat or blackmail me to do what does not go with my conscience or my ideals. Enough of your phone threats and embarrassment of my family members.”
 
“For the irritants who have been sending threat messages to me and members of my family or calling to abuse me for not supporting Tinubu, do know that is not democracy. It is something else. I spent my youth years fighting autocracy and intolerance of the military and I am still willing and ready, even now, to stand up for what I believe, even if it will cost me my life. Enough said,” he added.

    He shared the story on Nairaland and wrote:

    I want to use this medium to seek for your advice..

    Me and my wife has been together since 2014, although we have not done marriage as we only did introduction, but we planned having our marriage this year, we had two kids, but I think right now I'm not comfortable living with my wife.

    I am not enjoying this relationship anymore, she keeps beating me whenever there is quarrel between us, she is fond of slapping me and giving me punches, at times she makes use of wire and and broom to scatter my head.

    The one that happened on Monday is really giving me much concern, she checked my phone and saw a friend I was chatting with and instead of her to ask me about the lady, the next thing she did was to slap me and she started beating me to the extent of having right hand dislocation.. It's not as if she can beat me if I decided to fight back, I don't want to raise my hand on a woman, it's a curse and I don't want to do that, this is getting out of hand and I am not living comfortable at home again, we sleep on different bed, she doesn't allow me touch her again.

    She is even planning to get a room by ending of this month when she gets her salary..
    I told my sister about her behavior, the advice she gave me is that I should beat the hell out of her whenever she raises her hand to beat me.

    I have pleaded with my wife to let us continue the way we have been doing before but she wouldn't listen to me.

    I am really confused and I don't know what to do right now..

    In what will come across as a really startling development, a three-month-old infant has been killed in a fire incident on Awe Street, Makurdi, the Benue State capital.

    The fire, which started around 10.30am on Monday, reportedly began from a room in the eight-apartment building before spreading to other flats.

    The child was said to have been left in the care of a neighbour while the young mother, identified as Amira, left for an Islamic school within the neighbourhood.

    “Because of the suddenness of the fire incident, people did not remember that the little baby was sleeping on the couch in the parlour of the neighbour.

    “By the time people remembered, it was already late because the fire had engulfed every part of the building; the child was burnt beyond recognition,” a neighbour, who identified herself as Hassana Ayuba, said.

    Amira, who spoke to PUNCH Metro amid tears, said she learned of the fire while she was in school.

    She said, “When I finished bathing and dressing my baby up, my co-tenants told me that she looked beautiful and I thanked them. I then dropped her with my neighbour and left for school.

    “I was still in school when somebody came to inform me that there was fire in my compound. Initially, I thought it was a minor one until another woman came and told me to go home.

    “By the time I got home and saw the level of damage, I started crying and asked for my baby. It was then that I was told that my baby had died in the fire.”

    The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Catherine Anene, said she had yet to be briefed on the incident.

    This is as the agency added that the CMPV2 outbreaks were caused by immunity gaps in children.

    According to a report by The PUNCH, the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency on Thursday announced that Nigeria has officially reported 395 cases of the Circulating Mutant Poliovirus Type 2 across 27 states and the Federal Capital Territory.

    This is as the agency added that the CMPV2 outbreaks were caused by immunity gaps in children.

    The PUNCH reports that in August 2020, Nigeria was certified Wild poliovirus free by the World Health Organization and allies following the fact that the country reported its last case of the Wild poliovirus in 2016.

    The NPHCDA in a statement signed by its executive director, Faisal Shuaib further explained that the suspension of immunization programmes due to the COVID-19 pandemic has further created new immunity gaps which have led to new outbreaks.

    The statement partly reads, “We currently have 395 cases of Circulating Mutant Poliovirus Type 2 (across 27 states and the FCT.

    “Nigeria and the African region were certified Wild Polio Virus (WPV) free in 2020, following a rigorous verification and certification process by the African Regional Commission for the Certification of Poliomyelitis Eradication which spanned three years of no detection of WPV. To date, there has been no case of WPV anywhere in the country.

    “cMPV2 outbreaks are caused by immunity gaps in children due to several reasons, including low routine immunization coverage, and missing children during immunization campaigns. The suspension of several polio campaigns and other health programmes in 2020, as well as disruptions to routine immunization because of the COVID-19 pandemic, created further immunity gaps which led to new and wider outbreaks and further increased transmission of the circulating mutant poliovirus both globally and within Nigeria.

    “The viruses thrive in areas with poor sanitation, open defecation, and inadequate access to clean drinking water. These have allowed the virus to be easily transmitted from one person to another through contaminated water and poor sewage disposal. Malnutrition occasioned by increasing poverty is also a predisposing factor in exposed children. These non-wild polioviruses which originated because of normal changes in the reproduction of viruses in the environment are not as virulent as WPV and are also being reported in many other countries.

    The agency added that it is currently, “Working with our Donors and Development Partners, Nigeria has already acquired new tools and resources to ensure the outbreaks are contained through very robust outbreak responses using the novel Oral Polio Vaccine which has been shown to be effective in halting the spread of the cMPV2. All 36 States and FCT have completed at least one nOPV2 Outbreak Response.

    “Several other rounds of the OBR, as well as other campaigns to improve the mucosal immunity of children aged 0-5 years old using Injectable Polio Vaccine, have also been planned for this year. Efforts are also being ramped up to increase routine immunization coverage beyond pre-COVID values.

    President Muhammadu Buhari

    Following the massacre of villagers by bandits in Zamfara, President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the families of those who lost their loved ones.

    Garba Shehu, the president’s media aide in a statement on Saturday in Abuja, said the president, who was reacting to reports of the large-scale killings, said:


    “The latest attacks on innocent people by the bandits is an act of desperation by mass murderers, now under relentless pressure from our military forces who are well equipped to effectively confront these enemies of humanity.

    “In keeping with my commitment to tackle the monster of terrorism head on, let me reassure these besieged communities and other Nigerians that this government will not abandon them to their fate because we are more than ever determined to get rid of these outlaws.

    “These criminals will be history because we are not going to relent in our current military operations to get rid of these thugs who have been terrorising innocent people.”


    Premium Times reported the attack on five villages in Anka and Bukkuyum local government areas from Tuesday to Wednesday.

    By Saturday, residents said they had buried about 200 victims of the attack.

    On Saturday, President Buhari appealed to the affected communities for patience, saying: “We are fiercely determined to smoke out and destroy these outlaws who have no regard for the sanctity of life.”

    He extended his sympathy to the survivors and families of those killed.

    According to him, the army and the air force are working together to get rid of the “callous criminals.”

    He added that already, the army had acquired more equipment to track down and eliminate ”criminal gangs that are subjecting innocent people to the reign of terror, including illegal imposition of taxes on the communities under siege.”
