The battle by the Senator representing Delta North, Mr Peter Nwaoboshi is getting messier as information gathered by this newspaper reveals that the embattled Senator has secured the state government approval but through the backdoor to help him recover Guinea House which is under seal by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
According to our insider sources, Nwaoboshi approached the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Peter Mrakpor and his wife and allegedly enticed them with the sum of N100 million with more promise of contracts from NDDC which he oversees in the Senate if they stand by him to get back his house.
The plot we gathered is for Mrakpor to tell the Judge handling the case in Asaba that the property was not undervalued and sold legally to the Senator. They have also planned to tell the judge to hands off the case since it’s a state property and not a Federal property.
The 60 years old Senator last week wasted over N70 million just to celebrate his new age where he invited his co-senators to the lavish ceremony with ladies imported from nearby tertiary institutions to have fun with. His wife was not seen near him during the event as he allegedly instructed her not to be seen in public.
The Attorney General didn’t pick his calls when Secret Reporters reached out to him for clarity on the bribe allegations.
In yet another nepotism appointment as customized by the notorious governor of Imo State, Mr Rochas Okorocha; he has appointed another relation of his.
In a press release by his Principal Secretary, Dr Paschal Obi, Owelle Anayo Rochas Okorocha approved the appointment of his daughter’s Mother In-law and the wife of the Hon. Minister for Education (His daughter’s father in-law), Hon. Justice Christiana Ukachi Anwukah as Acting President of Imo State Customary Court of Appeal.
This appointment we gather is to pave way for him in 2019 election that may cause lots of legal battles, thus the need to have a family member who will smoothen his way to bribe judges for favorable judgment.
The Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello may have relieved his official photographer Seun James Taiwo of his job Kogi Daily learnt.
Taiwo is said to have taken the photo shot that landed Bello in trouble concerning the double PVC registration saga which Bello vehemently denied. The Architect turned photographer is said to have apologised to the Governor and deleted the photographs but it was too late. Bello directed that Seun be relieved of his job despite the plea.
A look at Seun’s social media profile by this reporter who is a fan of the talented documentary photographer shows he has removed ‘’official photographer to Governor Yahaya Bello’’ from most of his social media profiles.
The Independent National Electoral Commission had formally accused the governor of registering for permanent voter card twice, in violation of federal electoral law. This was after the photograph which is said to have been taken by Seun went viral on Social media with opposition youths asking questions.
The electoral body said Mr. Bello acted “illegally” to have registered for voter’s card in Abuja and Kogi, but said it could not take action against the governor because he is constitutionally protected from prosecution while in office. An allegation which Bello denied stating he was out of the country and therefore wouldn’t have committed the crime. Bello stated this when he spoke to State House correspondents in Abuja observing a two-raka’at Juma’at prayer at the Aso Rock Mosque.
Seun James Taiwo is an architect and a photographer. He is a graduate of architecture from the University of Lagos, Nigeria and recently finished a Master’s degree in Environmental Design from the same institution. While in school; he picked photography as an art and have since then been working on a photographic documentation of man in relation to his immediate space.
