So Sad! Workers Gruesomely Murder Business Woman Who Is Also Mom To Nigerian Singer

The owner of Etashol Hotel and Suites, located on Budland Street in the Ojodu Berger area of Lagos State, Mrs Abimbola Olusola, who also doubles as the mother of Nigerian singer, Melissa Whiskey and the manager of her hotel, Tunji Omikunle, have been murdered.

Punch Metro gathered that the deceased were drugged, tied up and strangled by a gang that included some workers at the hotel.

Olusola, who had lived in London, the United Kingdom, for 35 years, was said to have returned to Nigeria recently and opened the hotel for business in March 2018.

A Punch correspondent learnt that the 56-year-old had issues with some of the workers, who allegedly defrauded the hotel of millions of naira.

Two of the workers were reportedly sacked after the police were invited to look into the matter.

Last week Thursday, a gang said to have consisted some of the sacked workers and some still in the employment of the hotel, allegedly conspired among themselves and drugged Olusola and Tunji.

They allegedly deactivated the Closed Circuit Television cameras on the premises, dragged the manager into a toilet, where his hands and feet were tied.

A Punch correspondent learnt that Tunji was strangled, after which the suspects proceeded to Olusola’s room and strangled her too.

Relatives of the deceased told our correspondent that the suspects fled the hotel, as family members met the lifeless bodies of the victims in the hotel.

The case was reported at the Ojodu Abiodun Police Station.

A family member of the late businesswoman, who asked not to be named, said Olusola was planning to lease out the hotel and return to London when tragedy struck.

She said, “The incident happened on Thursday night cum Friday morning. I was called that my sister had been murdered by the boys working for her in the hotel.

“From what I learnt, the manager had dragged one of them, called Light, to a police station for involvement in fraud in the hotel. There were also cases of stealing involving these guys. Two of them were sacked.

“On Thursday night, the men tied Tunji’s hands and feet and strangled him. I think it was after they had killed Tunji that they got access to the card that opens my sister’s room. They went to her bed, tied her up and strangled her.”

Punch Metro learnt that the woman’s 12-year-old son, who was to go to school on Friday morning, was the first to discover the mother’s corpse.

Around 7am when the school bus came to pick him, a vigilante member, who had tried unsuccessfully to reach the deceased businesswoman on the telephone, insisted on knowing her whereabouts from the son.

The boy was said to have found her dead on the bed in her room.

The family member added, “The child sleeps in a room in the hotel. Tunji used to wake him up and prepare him for school. But when the boy did not see the manager that morning and his school bus had arrived, he quickly got himself ready and ran out.

“However, a vigilante member, who had suspected that something was amiss after noticing some of the workers’ movements the previous night, waited at the hotel’s gate. The man had called both Tunji and the woman on their phones without getting any response.

“When the boy was hurrying to school that morning, the man said he should go and call the manager. The boy went inside and returned, saying he could not find the manager. He was hurrying to get into the school bus when the man said he should go and call his mother.

“He went to her room and raised the alarm after discovering her corpse.”

Punch correspondent learnt that Olusola, who hailed from Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, had separated from her husband.

Tunji’s uncle, Chief Tunde Omikunle, said the deceased was survived by his wife and twin children.

Tunde said, “He grew up with me before learning fashion designing. And when he was done, the family got a shop for him; he even had apprentices until last year when he said he had been employed as a manager in the hotel.

“His wife, a graduate, had just been delivered of a set of twins. She stays in Ibadan. In fact, he wanted to go to meet his family in Ibadan when his boss asked him to wait. It was that night that he and the boss were killed.

“From what we know, two of the sacked workers conspired with those still there to carry out the act. They drugged him and took him to a toilet, where he was strangled. Although they destroyed the CCTV in the hotel in order to cover their tracks, we still got to know that they were responsible for the killings.”

Punch Metro learnt that the case had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, where one of the workers was being interrogated.

A source said the police had recovered the ropes used to commit the crime.

“There was no stab wound or anything on the corpses. The victims were strangled. We recovered the ropes used to commit the crime,” the source said.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, confirmed the incident, adding that investigation was ongoing.

Meanwhile, Nigerian singer, Melissa has taken to Instagram to mourn the death of her mother. A heartbroken Melissa wrote;

''In this life that is short learn to value and make the most of your loved ones before it is too late. This morning my mother was murdered in Nigeria a country she loved and gave everything to.... my life will never be the same i will never be the same...

Bluetooth 5.1: What’s New and Why It Matters

Brit Who Forced Plane To Turn Around Because Of His Aggressive Behaviour Faces £115k Lawsuit

A drunk Brit who forced a flight from Canada to London to turn around has been jailed and ordered to pay £12,000.

And he could face a further £100,000 bill if the airline demands compensation from him.

David Stephen Young, 44, was filmed being thrown off the Westjet flight, which was forced to return to Calgary International Airport in Alberta, Western Canada.

He admitted violently resisting arrest and failing to comply with in-flight security protocols, and was jailed for 10 days.

His lawyer, Michelle Parhar, said that Young was a recovering alcoholic who had been clean 18 months but had returned to drinking after a death in the family and after getting a divorce.

He had been in Canada visiting his mum in British Columbia over the Christmas holidays and before boarding the flight had drunk six alcoholic drinks.

The court heard that he had become aggressive towards the flight attendants and another passenger.
Reports state he repeatedly tried to use the lavatory during takeoff. Then he is said to have tried to use the toilet when the seat belt light was on in flight and when he was told to return to his seat, he forced his way inside the toilet anyway, and then continued to be aggressive upon returning to his seat.

Reports state that after about an hour of his antics, the decision was taken to turn the plane around and fly back to Calgary.

The plane had to dump an unspecified quantity of fuel before landing back at Calgary. He was met by police and was escorted off the plane.

He was charged with criminal harassment, causing a disturbance and assaulting a police officer.
The Brit has now been handed a whopping £12,270 fine by a judge to cover the airline's fuel costs and that’s even if the airline are not suing for more money.

Ambode Versus Lagos Assembly: Things Are Getting Serious

The Lagos State House Assembly yesterday insisted that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and some of his commissioners it invited to explain infractions on this year’s budget must appear before it.

The Assembly said should the infractions continue, it would apply constitutional provisions for punitive measure: impeachment.

Majority Leader Sanai Agunbiade addressed reporters last night after an emergency parliamentary meeting by the lawmakers.

The lawmaker said nobody was witch-hunting the governor, as being insinuated in some quarters, but that the infractions were serious issues the Assembly could not overlook.

He said the Assembly decided to debunk the wrong information and misconception being bandied around over the Assembly’s resolutions on Ambode last Monday.

There was a massive protest yesterday at the Assembly by concerned Lagosians against the planned impeachment of the governor.

The situation compelled the lawmakers to go into an emergency parliamentary meeting after the protest.

Referring to the protest, Agunbiade said the Assembly was not saying Ambode should end his tenure but that because of issues surrounding the budget, he was summoned by the Assembly.

According to him, the major contention is that he had started spending from this year’s budget, which has not been laid before the Assembly.

Agunbiade insisted that such action was against constitutional provisions.

He added: “The budget is supposed to have been laid before the commencement of another fiscal year. This has always been the practice in the state. Unless it is laid, you cannot spend from it. But the governor has made expenditure from the budget.

“There are also some infractions the Assembly observed about the 2018 budget, the expenditure made outside the budget, which necessitated the invitation the Assembly extended to him and some commissioners to explain things.

“It is not witch-hunting, as some people believe. To make expenditure from the budget, you must have laid it before the Assembly. For now, we don’t have the budget. So, you can’t spend. As legislators, we must do things properly.”

Agunbiade also corrected some misconceptions, which he said were being tied to the Ambode issue. The lawmakers said it was not true that the Assembly was after Ambode because he refused to fund their campaign.

“We want Lagos to flourish, but we cannot compromise the regulations or constitutional provisions concerning appropriation."

Ambode supporters say they will dump APC if the threat is not stopped.

Kylie Minogue Forced To Call Police After Stalker WON’T Leave Her Home

A "very shaken" Kylie Minogue was forced to call in police after a stalker hounded the pop singer at her home, according to reports.

Kylie's neighbours first alerted her to the man that then set about a "sustained campaign" against the 50-year-old singing legend, the Sun says.

The Queen of Pop was then hounded by the stalker for weeks leaving her feeling 'terrified' before she got the police involved, the paper claims.

A source told The Sun the situation came to a head when, "the man repeatedly pressed the intercom button to her home for hours on end last week and refused to leave."


This left Kylie "quite upset" and she called the police to intervene, who duly spoke to the singer, as well as the alleged stalker, who was still in the street when they arrived.

One of Kylie's neighbours recalled warning the Aussie pop star about a, "weirdo guy [who] was lurking around."

The resident told The Sun he had been going, "door to door asking people where Kylie lived," and that they, "gave her a heads-up because it wasn’t normal behaviour.”

Police issued the man with a first-time formal warning last Wednesday afternoon, the paper added, but he was not arrested.

And the body of a University of Iowa student was found outside a campus building yesterday.

The death of Gerald Belz, a pre-med student, was believed to be weather-related.

Illinois State Police officers rescued 21 people stranded in a charter bus that broke down in sub-zero temperatures after the vehicle's diesel fuel turned to gel in its engine.

More than a thousand flights, close to two-thirds of those scheduled, were canceled on Wednesday in or out of Chicago O'Hare and Chicago Midway international airports.

Amtrak canceled all trains in and out of the city too.

School classes were canceled for Wednesday and Thursday for students across the Midwest as police warned of the risk of accidents on icy highways.





Gremlins & Terminator Actor, Miller Dies Aged 90

Gremlins and Terminator actor Dick Miller, has died aged 90, after enjoying a career spanning more than 60 years.

The prolific screen actor is best known for his role as Murray Futterman in the 1984 classic horror film Gremlins, though he made hundreds of on screen appearances since his debut in the 1950s.

His first appearance came as Walter Paisley in the cult classic 'A Bucket of Blood' under the directorship of Roger Corman.

One of his earliest screen appearances was in 1955's 'Apache Woman', in which Miller played two characters, one of whom shoots the other during a key sequence in the film.

He may be most memorable for his performance as Murray Futterman in Gremlins.

Joe Dante, Dick's director on Gremlins, has shared his despair at the news in a couple of tweets.

Joe wrote: "I'm devastated to report that one of my best friends and most treasured collaborators has passed away. I "grew up" (kinda) watching Dick Miller in movies from the 50s on and was thrilled to have him in my first movie for

"We hit it off and every script thereafter I always looked for a role for Dick--not just because he was my friend but because I loved watching him act! But he leaves behind over 100 performances, a bio & a doc--not bad for a guy who hardly ever enjoyed a starring role."


Ahead Of First Birthday Kylie Jenner Posts Sweet Video Of Daughter

She's about to celebrate her first birthday, and Stormi Webster is as curious as ever. On Wednesday, Kylie Jenner posted a sweet video of her little girl playing with paper butterflies at their home.

The tot giggled in delight as she grabbed and tugged the delicate creations.

Though Stormi was clearly having a blast playing with the butterflies, it seems she was a little too rough when grabbing them.

After the youngster plucked a paper butterfly from her teepee, Kylie remarked, 'Oh, don't break it.'

'You're dropping all of them, you're breaking them,' Kylie said softly as she watched her daughter eagerly pull them off the wall.

In spite of the mess, Kylie couldn't get upset at her youngster.

She captioned the video, 'She loves butterflies,' along with an emoticon of the blue winged creature.

Kylie and her boyfriend Travis Scott welcomed baby Stormi last year.

The tot will be celebrating her first birthday on February 1.






Jailed MP Faces Having Her Sentence Extended

Jailed Labour MP Fiona Onasanya could have her sentence increased after members of the public complained that it was too soft.

The ex-solicitor, who has been kicked out of Labour, was locked up for three months for perverting the course of justice after lying over a speeding ticket.

But the jail term is now being reviewed by Attorney General Geoffrey Cox, the Government’s chief law officer, under an unduly lenient sentencing scheme.

Within 24 hours of Onasanya’s jailing on Tuesday, his office received at least 20 complaints from members of the public who felt it wasn’t long enough.


If Mr Cox believes she should have been locked up for longer, he can refer the case to the Court of Appeal to be looked at again. His spokesman said last night: ‘We have received a request for the case of Fiona Onasanya to be considered. Law officers have 28 days from sentencing to consider the case.’

At the Old Bailey on Tuesday, Mr Justice Stuart-Smith said the sentence of the Peterborough MP was the ‘shortest I feel able to impose’. He added: ‘I make plain I will not treat you more severely because of your position as an MP and former solicitor.

‘There cannot be one law for those in positions of power, privilege and responsibility and another for those who are not.’


John Legend Shares Video Of Self Learning To Swim

On Monday he revealed on Twitter that he had been taking swim lessons for the first time since he was a child.

And on Wednesday John Legend took to his Instagram stories to share a video of himself in a small outdoor pool having his second session.

It showed him pushing off from the side and reaching out with his arms as he kicked.

The crooner managed to reach the other side of the pool in just one breath, probably thanks to his great lung capacity developed during his singing career.


The 40-year-old didn't say anything during the video, but he wrote 'swim lesson #2' on the video and credited @kidswimla.

On Monday John revealed: 'I can't really swim. Today I took my first swim lesson since I was like 5. My dad learned in his 60's so I feel like I'm ahead of schedule.'


25-Year-Old Panel Beater Steals Brother's Wife's Pants In Ondo [Photo]

Adejoh Ojonugwa, a 25-year-old panel beater, has been arrested in Ondo State for stealing underwear belonging to his elder brother's wife.

Ojonugwa was apprehended by officers of Ondo State Police Command after the case was reported.

The suspect was nabbed alongside one Prophet Olajide Ogunleye of the Celestial Church of Christ, Ibanujemidopin Parish in Uso Local Council Area of the state.

SaharaReporters gathered that the 53-year-old prophet is well-known in the state.


During interrogation with reporters, Ojonugwa, a native of Kogi State, said he only visited the prophet for spiritual cleansing as he needed a solution to his problem.

Narrating his side of the story, he said: "I went to seek spiritual cleansing from Prophet Ogunleye and when I got there, he prayed fervently for me. In fact, he asked me about the job I do, and I told him that I am a panel beater, which has been my trade for a very long time.

"Later, he asked me to open my hand, and he dropped something on it for me to swallow, which I did. After I swallowed it, he prayed for me and I left his place. But when I got home, I became unconscious. Later, I began to look for my brother's wife underwear and I took them to the Prophet for some ritual purposes. Sadly, hours later, my brother's wife raised the alarm that her underwear garments were missing and I was arrested.

"When the Police arrested me, I was taken to Uso Police Station before they transferred me here to Akure. Two of the items belong to my brother's wife and three belong to my younger sister.”

The Prophet, however, denied the allegation, stating that he was only being implicated by the suspect.

His words: "I am a true man of God and I have never seen the boy (Ojonugwa) in my life. He is just lying against me. The truth of this matter is that they came to me for a parcel of land and I refused to give them. I never asked him to bring any underwear for rituals. So, they feel it is an opportunity to implicate me in this crime since I had refused to give them the land to cultivate Indian hemp.

"Though, I engage in some spiritual cleansing for people, mostly pregnant women who have difficulties so they can give birth early and easily, I don't engage in rituals as it is against the belief of our church. I only see the allegation as pure lies against me.”

Visibly angry, the elder brother of the suspect, Benjamin Ojonugwa, said his younger brother had always wanted to have money “by all means, even through rituals".

"He is my own younger brother and has always been in haste to have money through any means, but I just thank God that he was exposed. He stole my wife’s underwear, and wanted to use it for ritual purpose, so that he will have more money than me,” he said.

Grace Ojonugwa, the victim, confirmed that the suspect stole her underwear from where she spread it to dry in the house.

"It was my husband's younger brother that stole the pants. He was actually trailing me to spread it and when I discovered that the pants were missing, I knew he stole it," she said

Femi Joseph, spokesman of the Ondo State Police Command, said the suspect and the Prophet were arrested last week by the Police.

Joseph, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), said the cases of "stolen female underwear" were now becoming a trend and advised ladieas to be on their guard.

"We have to guard whatever we are putting on. I also advise parents to warn their children, particularly females, to be very careful where they keep their undergarments,” he said.

He added that the suspects would be charged to court soon.


Man With Three Wives R*pes Daughter In Ogun

The Ogun State Police Command, on Wednesday, announced that its operatives had arrested a 45-year-old man, Idowu Owolabi, for allegedly raping his 21-year-old daughter.

Owolabi, who has three wives, was accused of having carnal knowledge of his daughter since last year.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said this in a statement made available to journalists in Abeokuta.

Oyeyemi said both the suspect and the victim were residents of the Papa Olosun area of Oja-Odan in the Yewa South Local Government Area of the state.


The PPRO explained that Owolabi was arrested on January 28, 2019, following a complaint by the victim at the Oja-Odan Divisional Police Headquarters.

He said, “The victim reported that she followed her father to the farm at Fagboun village and the said father forcefully had carnal knowledge of her right there on the farm sometime in March 2018.

“She stated further that since then, her father had continuously been having unlawful carnal knowledge of her with a threat that he would kill her if she dared tell anybody about it.

“Upon the report, the DPO Oja-Odan, CSP Olayemi Jacob, led his detectives to the suspect’s residence, where he was promptly arrested.

 “On interrogation, the suspect, who was said to be married to three different women, confessed to the crime but blamed it on the devil.

“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for proper investigation and possible prosecution of the suspect.”

Obasanjo Gives 3 Reasons He Turned Around To Support Atiku’s Presidential Race

Olusegun Obasanjo, has again defended his decision to support the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.

Obasanjo in a statement to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Lagos Island Club said he has been called several names for sticking his neck for his former deputy.

Recall Obasanjo had in the past described Atiku as a ‘shameless liar’ and said God would never forgive him if he supports his presidential bid.

He has since announced that he has forgiven Atiku after the intervention of some clerics.


THREE REASONS

In his statement, Obasanjo said he has not retracted his words on Mr Abubakar but that the presidential candidate “has done three things which are absolutely imperative for a leader to be followed and believed.”


“First, know who you are and present yourself as you are – a human being in blood and flesh and susceptible to human mistakes and human frailties. Don’t cover up with sanctimonious veneer of bogus integrity, incorruptibility, uprightness, goodness and false figures and statistics, all of which are contrived to deceive, to cheat, to plunder and to destroy.

“Atiku never claimed to be a saint and I never described him as such. I will never so describe any human being alive let alone calling him a Messiah. On an occasion in the past when I said that someone was not a Messiah, some Nigerians out of bad belle were up in arms. For me, as a Christian, the only Messiah I know and have is Jesus Christ and even then, the man aspect of Him was imperfect while the divine aspect of Him was perfectly messianic.

“Secondly, a leader must be honest to himself and to the people he serves or he wants to serve. He must identify and acknowledge his situation, mistakes, shortcomings and inadequacy; show remorse where and when he has erred, seek forgiveness and repent; and not passing the bulk or keep blaming others and fail to accept responsibility. Atiku accepts responsibility for his mistakes, shows remorse and seeks forgiveness from his political party and subsequently from Nigerians. He asks for forgiveness from me and as a believer, a Christian as such, I forgave him in accordance with the teaching and instruction of my Saviour, “For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins (Matt 6:14-15 NIV). If anybody blames me for forgiving Atiku, I leave such a person with God Almighty, especially as both Christian and Islamic clerics joined Atiku to visit me to seek forgiveness. Anybody who does not forgive when forgiveness is sought with contrite heart cannot be a true believer and should not expect the forgiveness of God.

“Thirdly, as a leader, you must understand the fundamentals of the problems you have to solve and be courageous, visionary and ready to reach out sufficiently to build a credible team of experts, knowledgeable men and women, concerned and interested citizens and non-citizens to work hard and tirelessly for solutions that will benefit all Nigerians and indeed Africans and humanity. He must have ability to build a credible team, lead them, listen to them and give them enough leeway to achieve and make meaningful contribution without abdicating his responsibility. He must be accessible to them. From my personal knowledge of Atiku, he has these qualities.”

Student (18) Remanded For R*pe Of 12-Year-Old Girl

A Gombe Chief Magistrates’ Court III, on Wednesday, remanded an 18-year-old student, Usman Shehum of Bypass quarters, Gombe, for alleged trespass and rape of a 12-year-old girl.

The court clerk, Michael Chimuje, who read the First Information Report (FIR), alleged that the accused committed the offences on January 19 at about 2.30 p.m.

He said that the accused “criminally trespassed into the House of One Zainab Kachalla of same address.

Mr Chimuje said the accused entered into the bedroom of the complainant’s 12-year-old daughter and forcefully had carnal knowledge of her.

However, the police prosecutor, Salihu Jibir, told the court that investigation into the matter was in progress and applied for an adjournment to enable the police to complete their investigation.

NAN

Woman Dies Hours After Giving Birth To Quintuplet

Emmanuel Ezunu, Head, Clinical Services and Training, Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Asaba, has confirmed the death of a housewife who died 15 hours after she was delivered of a set of quintuplet.

Mr Ezunu who made the confirmation to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday in Asaba, said Chukwunonso Onyejekwe, 29, died of complications after delivery.

According to him, the deceased suffered acute respiratory failure and died after a successful Cesarean Session (CS) delivery.

Late Mrs Onyejekwe was delivered of a set of five female babies.


Mr Ezumu said that the woman was brought into the hospital as an un-booked patient, and due to her emergency condition, she was taken straight to the theatre.

“Also, when she came, we noticed that her blood pressure was so high and the condition put her in a high risk for a normal delivery.

“So, we recommended a caesarean session for safe delivery and she was moved to the theatre for an emergency CS,” he said.

According to the medical officer, the woman never knew she was carrying a set of five babies. THIS IS JUST SAD! POVERTY, BAD GOVERNANCE IS A NO NO.

Michele Kobke, from Berlin, Germany, calls her partner - a 737-800 Boeing - 'Schatz' and says she was first attracted to his wings, winglets and thrusters.

The 29-year-old claims to sleep with her "darling" every night, either with real components or a 1.6-meter model.


And she says her family have reacted "quite pleasantly".

Ms Kobke says she fell in love with the plane the first time she 'met him' at Berlin Tegel Airport and after nearly five years together, they plan to get married.

"The last time I was in a relationship with a man was in 2011 but there was no love there," she explained.

"Schatz is my first love. This is the most beautiful relationship you can imagine."

She continued: "My first flight was at the end of November 2013 and I became so in love with aeroplanes, I got so excited every time I looked at aeroplane pictures and videos.

"On March 11 2014 I was in Tegel Airport and visited the aeroplanes and then came a 737-800 airplane, which approached me, and I have been so in love with him since.

"Schatz is so nice and I love his aerodynamics and his appearance; especially his wings and his support surface - I love it. I was first attracted to his wings, winglets and thrusters.

"Every type of aircraft looks a bit different and my darling is the most updated version. My love is not easy, because I only meet him if I fly with my 737-800.

"In Hangar and Taxiway is not possible to be with him, so we don't have much time together to enjoy each other's company."

"Since I'm in a long-distance relationship, it is a disadvantage as I can only get to him when I fly with him," she said.

"My family has reacted quite pleasantly and accepted my relationship with my 737-800.
"I get many pejorative comments like that I need to go to therapy or that I am sick. But this love is present, and I've never been so happy.

"I sleep with my darling every night, either with real components or 1.6-meter model. Intimacy is part of our relationship.

"I want to marry my sweetheart and live together in a hangar. It's a special kind of love and it does not hurt anyone."
