Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu

Kanu is scheduled to appear in court on October 17 for his case but he has not been seen since September 24 when military men entered his compound. In Afaraukwu, Umuahia.

Former Abia State Governor Orji Uzor Kalu, said he was reliably told that Kanu had eloped to London through Malaysia.

According to The Nation speaking to reporters in Abuja at the weekend, Ikpeazu said:

“I don’t think that is a fair question. I don’t have the capacity to determine where Kanu is. I have never visited him. I have never called him on phone and he has never taken me into confidence as to what he does, where he goes.

So, those who are close to him would answer. I don’t have capacity to monitor him to know where he is, maybe journalists, through investigative journalism will know.”

Kimberly Ofili, a 300 level student of European language faculty of Art, French department at the University of Lagos, who was videoed twerking on the statue of late Vice Chancellor, Prof. Babatunde Sofoluwe of the institution, has reacted to the rumours of her rustication.

The Unilag student who sounded upset, has come out to say that she does not see any reason why the news was reported since the school did not announce her rustication. In her words;

“Was there ever a time Unilag announced they rusticated me? So if you didn’t hear from Unilag that I was rusticated, I don’t see the reason why it is an authentic news and for them to even come out to say they never rusticated any student what exactly do you want me to say about it. And I told you I am writing an exam and I don’t know what else you want me to say again. The school authority has already said what they want to say, if I am rusticated I don’t think I will be writing exams”

Ofili’s twerking video went viral last week due to reports that claimed she was rusticated for dancing with the statue of Prof. Babatunde Sofoluwe.

The Institution on Monday, October 9th debunked the news in a post on its Facebook page saying the University is not that mean.

The management therefore urged the students and general public to ignore the rumours.

Dangote carried ‘baby Davido’ home after he was christened

0

Mike Awoyinfa, a veteran journalist currently writing Aliko Dangote’s biography in an upcoming ‘Giants of Africa’ series has made new revelations about Dangote and it has much to do with singer, Davido.

According to Mike, the former President of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, revealed that Aliko Dangote “carried baby Davido home” after he was christened.

According to Aig-Imoukhuede who described Dangote as a God-fearing man, the Africa’s richest man has been Davido’s dad, Adedeji Adeleke close friend for years.

Mike wrote;

“With Imoukhuede, you can never run short of anecdotes. He remembers a day he was travelling with Dangote to Abuja. He needed to see his pastor urgently but found himself acting like Hamlet: to see or not to see.

Dangote instantly waded in, insisting: “you must see your pastor!” He even followed him to church, resulting in getting to Abuja very late.

“He also recalls an incident many years ago in Atlanta, USA, when Dangote had to go to church and was the one who carried the baby Davido home after his christening. Today, Davido is an award-wining pop star and a household name.

“That was why when Imoukhuede was hosting a 60th birthday bash for Dangote in his spacious Ikoyi office, he invited Davido to perform on that joyous night of dancing that brought together Dangote’s inner caucus and close friends like Davido’s father, the billionaire Dr. Adedeji Adeleke, the former Ogun State governor Aremo Segun Osoba, the former governor of Edo State Adams Oshiomole, the present governor of Edo State Godwin Obaseki, the former Cross Rivers State governor Donald Duke, the Nigerian billionaire Femi Otedola and many other Dangote insiders.”
