I was invited to buy car in Osun - Ex-banker arrested for robbery

Thirty-eight-year old Moses Keffi, an ex-employee of a second generation bank, who was arrested last Thursday on the Osu/Ile-Ife Expressway for armed robbery, has said he was invited by a friend, simply identified as ‘Ibadan’, to Osun  State to buy a car

Keffi was arrested by the police alongside Odeyemi Oluwafemi and Isah Lawal for hijacking at gunpoint two trucks, one of which was loaded with toiletries on January 14, 2021 around 4am.

In a chat with PUNCH Metro, Keffi, who was paraded along with two other suspects by the Osun State Commissioner of Police, Mr Wale Olokode, explained that he lost his job last year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, adding that he had been engaged in business since then.

The ex-banker said ‘Ibadan’ had invited him from Lagos to check a vehicle he wanted him to buy in Lagere, Ile-Ife, last week Monday.

Keffi stated, “I left Lagos on Wednesday around 4pm and got to Osun State very late. When I got to Lagere, I called but ‘Ibadan’ said he was no longer in Lagere and said he would call a driver to bring me to where he was.

“After about 40 minutes, a vehicle came to pick me. ‘Ibadan’ was communicating with me with the driver’s phone. I was taken to where ‘Ibadan’ was waiting and I saw two trucks. He said I should check and choose the one I wanted to buy. But I told him I wanted to buy a car and not a truck.

“He said I should get into the truck. While that was going on, I saw police vehicles come to the scene and I fled into the bush. I was later arrested by the police.”

But Olokode, while briefing newsmen on how the suspects were arrested said, “On January 14, 2021 around 4am, a gang of robbers fully armed with guns and other weapons invaded the Osu/lle-lfe Expressway and attacked innocent motorists plying the road and hijacked at gunpoint two trucks.

“One of the trucks, an Iveco with number plate DTM 19 AX, was loaded with toiletries worth millions of naira, and one DAF 75 truck with number plate JJI 445 XT loaded with empty sacks of cocoa beans were attacked by the suspects.

“The victims were also robbed of their valuables such as mobile phones and the sum of N130,000. The JTF and police patrol team in the area were quickly alerted and they immediately swung into action and arrested the suspects.” Punch


Arrested spy commits suicide

One of the suspects, who was arrested on charges of spying for the UAE, committed suicide by hanging himself in Istanbul’s Silivri prison, Turkey’s news agency has reported.      


The body of the suspect, identified as Zaki Y. M. Hasan, was found hanging from the bathroom door in his cell at 10.22 a.m. local time (0722GMT) on Sunday, a statement issued by the Istanbul’s Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office said.

The suspects were arrested earlier this month as part of a probe by Istanbul prosecutors of alleged spying by the Gulf state.
The AFP reported that the man was detained as part of Turkey’s probe into the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi last October.

But Anadolu Agency said the deceased and one other were remanded in custody on charges of political, military and international espionage.      


Reuters reported that the two suspects were arrested on April 19 and confessed to spying on Arab nationals, a senior Turkish official said at the time. Turkey was investigating whether the arrival in the country of one of them was related to the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

One of the two men arrived in Turkey in October 2018, days after Khashoggi was murdered inside Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul, the official said at the time of their detention, adding the other had arrived later to help his colleague with the workload.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed in the consulate on Oct. 2 by a team of Saudi operatives, provoking an international outcry. (NAN)

30 nude dancers arrested in Abuja

The Federal Capital Development Administration (FCTA) has invaded a popular night club, Caramelo, located at Utako district of Abuja, demolished part of the structure and arrested 30 nude dancers.       


The Coordinator, Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC), Mallam Umar Shuaibu, said that operators of the night clubs contravened the law by converting residential buildings for other purposes. Shuaibu said the Department of Development Control had to demolish the fence of the compound as another form of warning to the owners of the club, while the arrested dancers would be handed over to the Social Development Secretariat for rehabilitation.
He said: “It is a flagrant abuse of the city plan and violation of the relevant clause (viii) of the building plan approval granted, and clause No.2 (ii) of the letter of Offer of Grant on this plot. The contravening activities will cease henceforth and the allottee will revert the use of the building to the health clinic so designated and approved.”

He further said: “In response to security reports and complaints from the residents of area adjoining the location of Caramelo Night Club on plot 630 Cadastral zone B05, along T.O.S Benson Street, within Utako District, the authority deployed its officers to carry out surveillance in order to validate the complaints.      


The outcome of the surveillance revealed that the complaints are genuine and real. Please note that the substance of these complaints, include noise nuisance from loud party music, nude/strip dancing club activities, intractable traffic challenge resulting from uncontrolled patronage to the commercial nightclub within the residential precinct.

“You may wish to note that the plot under reference is zoned as health clinic on the Utako District Land use Plan, and in line with this plan, the building plan approval granted was for the development of the health clinic. Accordingly, the property was developed as a health clinic. However, the use of the building has been changed to a commercial night club.” Shuaibu noted that the authority has repeatedly engaged the operator of Caramelo and other operators across, on the need to quit the operation of night club within residential precinct, to no avail.      


He vowed that the administration will not renege on its duty to protect and maintain the sanctity of the Abuja Master Plan, and will continue to ensure that the city remain a safe place for living, working and recreating for all its residents and citizenry. The Acting Secretary, Social Development Secretariat (SDS), Hajia Safiya Umar, said the owner of the club would be punished according to the law, considering the calibre of girls arrested. 

Umar said that preliminary investigation showed that the nude dancers were from wealthy homes. It was also discovered that some of them were married and have children. She disclosed that the dancers have been taken to Wuse General Hospital for medical checkup, after which they would be taken to FCT rehabilitation centre in Lugbe. They would expected to stay at Lubge for three months in order to learn basic trades. (New Telegraph)
