As scuffle between Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Olawale Akanbi and Agbowu of Ogbaagba, Oba Dhikirulahi Akinropo lingers, Oluwo has alleged that monarchs in his domain are land grabbers.

He said what transpired between him and the Ogbaagba King was a fallout of a courageous move on his part to put a stop to economic oppression against the downtrodden by kings in his environment.

Oba Akanbi expressed dissatisfaction over what he termed misrepresentation of his intention, saying kings in the axis, who were involved in the act of land grabbing deliberately blew the matter out of proportion purposely to nail him.

The monarch made this assertion during a press conference at the NUJ Correspondents’ Chapel in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.

He, however, denied trending of physically assaulting Oba Akinropo; he said what really happened was a mere altercation and not physical combat.

“I did not punch Agbowu of Ogbaagba, although there was altercation that almost resulted to exchange of blows, but that didn’t happen at all.

“If I am that king you people are calling me, I should have done that in Iwo and not in Osogbo. Because I am a peace loving personality, I personally initiated the peace meeting in which I involved the AIG when those kings refused to desist from land grabbing despite my several warnings and advice”, Akanbi opined.

He further accused kings in his domain of selling land to foreigners from Republic of Niger, who he claimed poses serious danger to the area.

“Can you imagine kings selling land as ridiculous as N60,000 per hectare, and using the proceeds to marry new wives and drink alcohol, not minding the economic condition of their subjects.

“They even went as far as selling our land to dangerous foreigners from Republic of Niger, those who always come with sophisticated weapons to terrorise the people.

“That is I always advocate that government must start conducting background check on those that are aspiring to be king.

” I have never in my life sell a single plot of land in my domain, I can’t take people’s property and turn them to paupers to enrich myself. I have been alleviating poverty in my domain instead, by organising vocational trainings and supporting them materially in all ramifications”.

Oba Akanbi added that there was a gang up against him by royal fathers in his domain on the issue of land, saying “I am fighting for the poor people, kings have made their subjects destitute in this area , as their lands have been take over forcefully.

EFCC: Ibrahim Magu opens up on ‘N550b missing interest’

Published

on

By

Ibrahim Magu, the suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has denied the claim that he failed to account for the interest in the N550 billion recovered fund kept in the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, custody.

Recall that the Final of Presidential Committee on Audit of Recovered Assets, PCARA, surfaced at the weekend showing how interest rates accruing from N550 billion recovered by the anti-graft agency in the period from May, 2015, to May 2020.

The report said the EFCC, “Failure to report on the interest on actual lodgments clearly establishes that interest element of over N550 billion has been re-looted relating to the period under review.”

But in a statement by his lawyer Wahab Shittu on Sunday, Magu said such recovered fund kept with the CBN do not generate interest.

The statement added, “It is falsehood that Magu placed N550 billion recovered loot into a deposit account.

“The alleged transaction never featured in the proceedings before the Salami panel. Magu was never confronted with any such allegation by the panel and the news is blatant falsehood.

“To the best of Magu’s knowledge, no such amount is in any such account and he remains aghast at such outrageous figures. No one has confronted Magu with such allegations.

“All recovered funds are lodged in the Treasury Single Account (TSA) with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). Such recovered funds do not generate interest. This is elementary and can be verified from the CBN and the federal ministry of finance.

“This can also be confirmed from other government revenue generating agencies. Funds kept in TSA account do not generate interest.”

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had on Friday suspended Magu as the acting chairman of the EFCC.

The agency’s Director of Operations, Mohammed Umar, has taken charge and now oversees the activities of the Commission pending the conclusion of the ongoing investigation into Magu’s case.

Magu, on Friday wrote the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, asking to be released on bail.

In a letter dated July 10, 2020, Magu’s legal representative, Oluwatosin Ojaomo, asked Adamu to grant bail to his client on “self recognizance.”

The acting EFCC Chairman was arrested on Monday and taken to the presidential Villa in Abuja, where he is being interrogated by a panel headed by Ayo Salami, a retired president of the Appeal Court.

World risks another virus like COVID-19 – UN

Published

By

The United Nations Office on Drug and Crime (UNODC) says that the world risks another virus of the magnitude of COVID-19.

The UN warned that this could happen if the trafficking, sales and consumption of wildlife are not stopped.

UNODC, in a statement, said the World Wildlife Crime 2020 revealed that zoonotic diseases represented 75 percent of all emerging infections globally.

Diseases like SARS-CoV-2 that caused COVID-19 pandemic have already been linked to wildlife with pangolins top on the suspected list.

UNODC noted that the coronavirus pandemic “has shown that wildlife crime is a threat not only to the environment and biodiversity, but also to human health”.

It said when wild animals are poached from their natural habitat, butchered and sold illegally, the potential for transmission of zoonotic diseases is increased.

UNODC added that pangolins, which were identified as a potential source of coronavirus, were the most trafficked wild mammals in the world.

The body decried that Nigeria played a significant role in the trafficking and sales of pangolins with at least 51 tonnes of pangolin scales seized in 2019, from just two tonnes in 2015.

UNODC disclosed that in the last 20 years, it made 180,000 seizures from 149 countries and territories.

Executive Director, Ghada Waly, stressed that if wildlife crimes were not stopped, they would heighten the risk of a future public health emergency.

He said stopping the trafficking in wildlife species was a critical step not just to protect biodiversity and the rule of law, but to help prevent future public health emergencies.
