The New Year 2018 cross over night saw the escape of multiple suspects from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] detention center in Lagos. Information available to reveal that suspects – six of them – escaped the detention center after having reached an understanding with officers of the EFCC.

According to available information, the suspects were detained by the anti-graft agency for fraudulently acquiring money from members of the public. The suspects were reported to have been detained indefinitely at the detention center. A source stated that the EFCC agents were holding the suspects in order to reach a financial settlement with the suspects.

The New Year cross over escape came about following a deal between the suspects and an EFCC officer. The deal for their escape, according to an authoritative source, includes “large amount of money and a promise of other kindness.”

The following morning, the Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Mustafa Magu arrived Lagos in a raging fury. He acted to immediately suspend some of the EFCC agents on guard on the night of the incident.

Interesting, the Attorney General of the federation, Abubakar Malami who serves as the supervisor of the EFCC is reported to be unaware of the jail break. “Magu does not want Malami to know of the incident” says a source.

The suspects remain at large.

Nigerian politics is filled with intrigues. In Akwa Ibom State maligning and political godfatherism has been the order of the day, especially when the purpoted godson begins to rebel. Or when the sycophantic followers refuse to dance no more to the tune played by their power drunk leaders. The attention of Secret Reporters has been drawn to a publication by an Akwa Ibom State newspaper called the Annang Peoples Front.

A press release signed by Etim Johnson and sent to Secret Reporters by Akwa Ibom Unity forum has it on good authority that the publication was sponsored by Sen. Godswill Akpabio to malign and ridicule His Excellency Governor Udom Emmanuel and former Military Administrator, Idongesit Nkanga.

The publication falsely claimed that Governor Udom Emmanuel is planning to cause tribal crisis in the State. The publication also falsely claimed that Governor Emmanuel sponsored Sen. Anietie Okon and Chief Assam Assam to attack Sen. Godswill Akpabio.

“Senator Godswill Akpabio has persisted in his subterfuge and continues to incite the people of the State against Governor Emmanuel.

Governor Emmanuel who is the leader of PDP has shown unbelievable restraint and humility in the face of unending provocations and insults, and this should not be taken as a sign of weakness.

As Governor Udom Emmanuel rightly pointed out (when he issued the warning to Akpabio and others who are out to destabilize his Administration) the State has been peaceful compared to the Akpabio era when State sponsored kidnappings and assassinations were rife.  Prominent leaders who opposed Akpabio from Ibibio, Oro and Annang (especially Abak 5) were either abducted or murdered or both. The list is endless. Those who were abducted for political reasons during the era of Goodwill Akpabio include Gen. Edet Akpan Rtd., Mrs Comfort Enwang, wife of Group Cpt. Sam Enwang Rtd.,  Engr. Iniekong Udonwa who was a governorship aspirant etc.

Cases of those killed in cold blood including HRM Robert James Obot (Ibibio), Barr. Imo Udonwa (Ibibio), Miss Aniefon Aniediabasi, (Ibibio) Engr. Emmanuel Ekpenyong (Submarine) (Ibibio), Mr Mathias Ekpenyong (Ibibio), Barr. Benjamin Udoekpo (Ibibio), Two women at Qua Iboe Church, Iwok (Ibibio), Dr Austin Edet (Ibibio), Obong Paul Inyang (Ibibio), Daughter of Paramount Ruler Abak (Annang Abak 5), Mrs. Marie Ikpe (Ibibio), Ezekiel Peter Ebere (Episco) (Anang), Dr. Chris Ekong, accused of killing the Ekpenyong brothers. (Record shows he was in South Africa when the murder took place) (Ibibio) Rev. Ntia I Ntia (Ibibio) Apostle Ime Iyire (Ibibio), Mrs Philomena Udonwa (Ibibio), Anthony Akpanobong (Ibibio), Mr Daniel John Ekanem- (Ibibio)    Asuquo Onyong (Oro), Chief Efiong Ononokpono (who was arrested for criticizing Akpabio and died immediately he was released from detention, (Oro), Dr. Ime Umana (Annang Abak 5) (arrested, prosecuted and killed by auto crash for opposing Akpabio), former deputy speaker AKHA Rt. Hon Okon Uwah (Annang Abak 5), Chief Albert Ukpanah (Annang Abak 5), Mrs Udonwa (Ibibio), Mrs Grace Awana who died from shock after her premature retirement as Head of Civil Service (Oro). Another prominent  son of Abak 5 , Chief Soni Udom narrowly escaped assassination.

The hypocrisy of the Annang Patriotic Front who never asked questions when prominent Annang sons like Dr. Ime Umana, Albert Ukpanah and Rt. Hon. Okon Uwah were killed for opposing former Governor Godswill Akpabio, is ridiculous.

It has not been forgotten how an eminent son of Abak 5 Atuekong Don Etiebet was persecuted and humiliated by Godswill Akpabio. The pains and the wounds of the Akpabio era are still very fresh. Godswill Akpabio should let sleeping dogs lie. Governance is not only about the uncompleted projects Godswill Akpabio falsely claimed he had completed.

Governance is also about peace and security. We commend Gov. Emmanuel for maintaining peace and security in Akwa Ibom State. We urge him to deal decisively with anybody no matter how highly placed who wants to sponsor insecurity in the State.” the group stated.

December 21th, 2017 was a memorable day in Ogun State as the Ogun state government launched its MITROS rice, her own version of the LAKE rice. Secret Reporters reliable sources captured several dignitaries from across the country who graced the occasion. Among whom were, the CBN Governor Mr Godwin Emefiele, Kebbi State Governor Alhaji Abubakar Bagudu and other dignitaries who were present to launch the rice project.


At the event, Governor Ibikunle Amosun revealed that the rice had different varieties and they were all planted within the state by the state government. Part of the rice farm was located in Sawonjo in the Ogun West Senatorial district of the state. The governor further revealed that the state government has harvested and processed a total of 110,000 bags of rice translating to 183 trucks of rice at 600 bags per trailer.

It was however shocking when our source revealed facts about the lies and deceit involved in the said MITROS rice right from the venue of the launch. It was revealed that no rice of such quantity was planted in any part of the state and none of the rice mills displayed during the launch were functional. The little ones displayed by Amosun are the ones he bought from different sellers across all the markets in the state, then after, was SAND FILLED IN SACKS AND DISPLAYED AS RICE to deceive the CBN into believing that the N4bn agriculture loan has been put into massive rice production. The governor knows there is no rice farm to take the CBN governor to and the total number of bags of rice to be displayed isn’t up to 7,500 which won’t reflect rice production of N4bn. That’s why the fake rice pyramid had to be created to reflect the acclaimed 110,000 bags of rice displayed during the launch which will make the governor access the second batch of the loan. That was why the commissioner for agriculture recently revealed that the sum of N4bn was used to plant the recently launched MITROS rice

Further information gathered by Secret Reporters  revealed that the pyramid of rice displayed to show 110,000 bags of rice actually housed not more than 2,500 bags of rice.  Furthermore, various insider sources then backed this information with detailed pictures of how the governor, Ibikunle Amosun had deceived the CBN governor and others that graced the occasion.

Sources disclosed that Amosun was after the second batch of CBN agricultural loan after the first batch of N4bn has been accessed and used in planting the so called MITROS rice. The governor’s inability to show the CBN governor the rice farm or video of processing of the 110,000 bags led to the construction of the pyramid with planks and rice arranged on it.

Secret Reporters further gathered that when the governor became aware that he still doesn’t have enough bags of rice to fill the wooden pyramid, he then decided to fill empty sacks with sand just to deceive the CBN and other dignitaries at the launch.
