The future of urban transit? By Brandon Griggs, CNN

Someday, there may be a third option: Urban transit systems built around small electric vehicles, or pods, that drive themselves.

Supporters of these driverless pods say they take up less space than cars, cut down on urban noise and produce zero emissions. And they offer more flexibility: Instead of relying on a set schedule, riders can summon these pods for private, individual trips.

Since 2011, a fleet of such pods has been transporting passengers between terminals at London’s Heathrow Airport, eliminating more than 50,000 bus trips a year on crowded nearby roads. The Heathrow system runs mostly on elevated tracks.

Now, Milton Keynes, a small city 45 miles northwest of London, wants to be the first in the world to put a network of pods on pedestrian walkways. The vehicles would connect the city’s train station with its downtown shopping district a mile away.

Riders can reserve pods using their smartphones. Or they will find a fleet of pods waiting for them outside the railway station or other popular spots, said Geoff Snelson, director of strategy for Milton Keynes Council.

Early designs show a small, stubby vehicle with two seats and a large, plunging windshield. Anticipating unease with driverless vehicles, the project’s backers want the pods to look sleek, modern and unthreatening.

“We want people to be curious about using them,” Snelson said.

British engineering firm RDM Group is working on three prototype pods fitted with autonomous-driving systems from Oxford University’s Mobile Robotics Group. To start, they’ll have a steering wheel, an accelerator, a brake and a human driver, although future models are expected to be fully autonomous.

Packed with cameras and sensors, the pods will know when to turn and brake to avoid collisions with pedestrians, cyclists or teens on skateboards.

“The focus has to be on safety,” said Neil Fulton with Transport Systems Catapult, a British public transit advocacy group.

The city plans to begin testing the two-seater pods in the spring, with the hope of gradually integrating larger models into its transit system by the end of 2015. Other municipalities worldwide are watching Milton Keynes’ plans with an eye on adopting similar systems. But first, laws must be drawn up to allow driverless cars on roads in the UK.

“There’s huge interest in this,” said Fulton. “We’re trying a completely new mode of transport.”

Pirates of the Caribbean 5′ sets course for 2017

Johnny Depp has starred in all of the

The last we saw of Captain Jack Sparrow, he was on a beach with ol’ scallywag Gibbs, reflecting on his decision to deny himself the Fountain of Youth. “Who’s to say I won’t live forever [anyway], eh?,” he says. Indeed.

Despite some delays—and a Lone Ranger-sized hiccup—the long-awaited next chapter in the “Pirates” franchise, following 2011′s “On Stranger Tides,” has a new official release date: July 7, 2017.

Common sen$e dictated that there needed to be another film, even though the fourth film was hardly the best-regarded of Capt. Jack’s adventures. Still, it grossed more than $1 billion around the world. A fifth film, at one point titled “Dead Men Tell No Tales,” was initially targeted for a 2015 release, with Kon-Tiki directors Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg taking over for Rob Marshall (who in turn had taken over for Gore Verbinski.)

But last summer, shortly after “The Lone Ranger” had put a $190 million dent in Disney’s bottom line, the project was delayed, due to budgetary concerns and an unfinished script. Now, Disney is recalibrating Sparrow’s course for 2017.

Re: I Injured Ronaldo Spiritually Using Charm – Kwaku Bonsam, Stop Disgracing Ghana

It is most unfortunate that international media have picked up on the narcissistic ramblings of a Ghanaian spiritualist who evidently prefers enriching his own coffers
and embellishing his own name to the
wellbeing and reputation of his nation. I am referring to Nana Kwaku Bonsam, touted to be Ghana’s foremost spiritualist, who haphazardly decided to besmirch Ghana’s name before the eyes of the world by claiming his ‘devilish powers’ are behind the current injury of Portugal star and
arguably the world’s best player, Cristiano Ronaldo. According to reports, Bonsam claims to have conjured a special powder from his gods which was placed around an image and caricature of Ronaldo, rendering
his present injury untreatable by
conventional medics and leaving his World Cup hopes tattered.
My grouse with this report, apart from its clear ludicrousness, is the impression it will undoubtedly create in the minds of people towards Ghana – as a nation crawling in ‘fetish priests’ with ‘black magic’.
With such reports being bandied about, if Ghana excels in the tournament, some will unscrupulously attribute it to some ‘juju’ at work. If the Black Stars do overcome Portugal come June 26th, people will
unfortunately play up the influence of devilish power rather than the skill, determination and prowess of our boys.
My question to Kwaku is this – if indeed you are so ‘powerful’, why can’t you empower the current Ghanaian squad to face their opponents? What is your business with
CR7 alone when there are plenty of other stars capable of inflicting defeat on Ghana? What of Mesut Özil or Thomas Müller from Germany’s formidable squad in Ghana’s group of death? The regrettable saga brings
to mind the tale of a team in India that was banned after the ridiculous score line led officials to investigate the use of ‘charms’ by the team. Perhaps Bonsam is furtively advocating for a similar sanction
for Ghana! I am expecting Appiah and
Ghanaian officials to debunk this report and disgrace this self-styled magician – unless Bonsam really is the Black Star’s ‘spiritual advisor’ as he has previously boasted. If this is the case, Ghana deserves nothing more than the ridicule and perhaps reprimand that will accompany such
superstitious garbage.
On a related note, isn’t this the same witchdoctor who visited the Vatican City a fortnight ago with the expressed purpose of reporting Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua to
Pope Francis? If there is anyone Bonsam should destroy or inflict injury upon, it should be Joshua since they are operating with evidently opposite forces. Kwaku is
‘powerful’ enough to spiritually inflict Ronaldo thousands of miles away in Portugal but can’t travel a few miles across the border to wreak vengeance on his Nigerian adversary T.B. Joshua??? Nonsense. I cannot
but conclude that Bonsam is nothing more than a rambling popularity seeker who is using Cristiano’s predicament to advertise his counterfeit cures, unashamedly tainting the name of his nation in the process.
Ghana is greater than any individual. If we do well in Brazil, it will be due to skill, hard work and unwavering commitment to God
and the mantra of fair play, not the
sacrificed dogs of a scarred herbalist whose mouth is bigger than his means.

How Jonathan & Nigerian State Governors Escape From Boko Haram

Just came across this interesting piece that depicts the situation Nigeria is presently facing.

Boko Haram commmander, Abubakar Shekau has demanded for a 2-day urgent meeting with the President, his Vice and the 36 Governors in the country. It will start on Sunday and end on Monday. The meeting is to hold in their Camp in the dreaded forest.

Government reaction: President Goodluck Jonathan has directed that all the Governors should be present in the meeting as he wont be able to be there because he has an urgent meeting in Paris. Oga Jona escapes.

Governor Amaechi called Fashola today and told him that he is travelling tomorrow and that he wont be back until Tuesday,
Fashola said he should call another person because he himself is already on his way to England to see the Queen.

Oshiomole called Uduaghan to tell him that he is travelling to Senegal and he will come back on Tuesday,
but Uduaghan said I was about calling you to tell you that am on my way to UK Prison to see my Oga, Ibori.

When Okorocha called Vice President Sambo to ask how the meeting will be, Sambo said: my brother I am not feeling fine o and I wont feel fine until Tuesday evening…
Okorocha said ehyaa, I just want to tell you that I am in One Airport in Ghana, and many of the Governors are also here with me, we are on a queue to get a ticket for night flight. Please we are all coming back to Nigeria on Tuesday evening.

Ajimobi got to the Airport trying to jet out, he saw Aregbesola booking for a ticket to move with the next flight.

When Ibikunle Amosun called Kayode Fayemi to tell him dat he wont be able to come to the meeting because he wants to go to Portugal, Kayode Fayemi told him: I am presently in India, in fact Mimiko is also here wit me, we wont be back until Tuesday evening…
When Okorocha called the Vice president to ask how d meeting will be, Sambo said i am not feeling fine and i wont feel fine until tuesday evening……..Okorocha said ehyaa, i just want to tell you that I am in One Airport in Ghana, and the other 35 Governors are also here with us, we are on a queue to get a ticket for night flight…….we are all coming back on Tuesday evening.

Fellow Nigerians: who will now attend to this Boko Haram and save Nigeria from this madness?

“Nigerian Soldiers Afraid Of Fighting Boko Haram Terrorists” – US Air Force Chief Of Staff

Few days after US Marines were moved from Nigeria to Sicily, US General Mark Welsh hinted that the United States might limit its involvement in the ongoing search for the kidnapped school girls in Borno state because the Nigerian Military are very afraid of the dreaded extremists.
While speaking on Thursday before the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, the US Air Force Chief of staff, Gen.
Mark Welsh III, said, “We’re now looking at a military force that is, quite frankly, becoming afraid to even engage. The United States doesn’t have the capacity, the capability to go rescue every kidnapped person around the world.”
Saturday PUNCH learnt that the US had questioned the ability of the Nigerian military to rescue the girls even with
international help.
The Pentagon’s Principal Director for African Affairs, Alice Friend, also said, “The Nigerian military has the same
challenges with corruption that every other institution in Nigeria does. Much of the funding that goes to the Nigerian military is skimmed off the top, if you will.”
US officials have also said that its involvement had also been made difficult because Nigerian officials ignored past warnings to soften brutal tactics that only fuelled the Boko Haram’s insurgency.
At Thursday’s Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, officials condemned the kidnappings and committed American aid to help rescue the girls. But they also expressed frustration at Nigeria’s political and military leaders for failing to heed Washington’s warnings about the extremist group.
“We have been urging Nigeria to reform its approach to Boko Haram,” Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Robert Jackson, said.
He added, “From our own difficult experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq, we know that turning the tide of an insurgency requires more than force. The state must demonstrate to its citizens that it can protect them and offer them opportunity.
When soldiers destroy towns, kill civilians and detain innocent people with impunity, mistrust takes root.”
A retired Head of the US military’s Africa Command, Gen.
Carter Ham, said, “My sense is that US Government will
remain in a supporting role to Nigeria. I do not think the U.S.G. will seek unilateral action.”
The size of the Sambisa Forest is also believed to make the
search for the girls difficult.

“We are basically searching for these girls in an area that’s
roughly the size of West Virginia, so it’s a tough challenge, to be sure,” state Department spokesman, Marie Harf, said on Thursday.

Patience Jonathan’s Bad English Caused By Lack Of Primary & Secondary Education” – Ali Baba

Nigerian comedian Alibaba in a recent interview on Hip TV
blasts First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan for her recent
grammatical blunder on national TV.
Ali Baba said the First Lady lacks basic education and that is why her grammar is very poor.
He further lay emphasis on the importance of Girl-Child
education in the country In his own words;

“The education of the girl child is very important because if
Patience Jonathan were educated, we will not have the problem that people think we have with her not being able to speak English”.
“Having a primary and secondary education helps a child to
develop (into) whatever the child wants to become later. It is
obvious that Patience (Jonathan) did not get any of the above, or did not get it properly”.

Some Nigerians have gone to the extent of creating a remix
video of Patience Jonathan and Patrick Obahiagbon.

Old Enough – Rio Ferdinard leaves Manchester United

Rio Ferdinand has announced that he will leave Manchester United this summer after a glittering 12-year career at Old Trafford.

The 35-year-old defender joined United in 2002 from Leeds United and made 312 Barclays Premier League appearances, scoring seven goals, and winning six League titles in 2002/03, 2006/07, 2007/08, 2010/11 and 2012/13 He also won one UEFA Champions League medal, two League Cups and a Club World Cup.I have thought long and hard over the last few months about my future and, after 12 fantastic years playing for what I regard as the best club in the world, I have decided the time is right for me to move on,” Ferdinand said in a statement on the club website.

“I joined Manchester United in the hope of winning trophies, and never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined how successful we would be during my time here.

“Tiwa Savage’s Over-sized Vera Wang Wedding Dress Is For Pregnant Brides” – Critics

A day after her wedding ceremony in Dubai, experts have badmouthed the designer Vera Wang dress Tiwa Savage wore on her wedding day.
According to the light news, she must have spent a fortune, wasted days and hours for fitting and
amendments, but the expert jury we put together to access the wedding dress has given velvety voiced Savage a hard knock!
For the untrained eye the dress looks sensational, and that includes this reporter who described it as amazingly beautiful, but the Vera Wang dress
according to our team did not do justice to her size or her shape!
We are told that the ball, strapless gown could have been perfect if Tiwa Savage was a fuller figure woman but for her shape it was off the mark. In fact, one of the experts said jocularly that except she had become pregnant over night; it was not appropriate. “The gown looked over-sized at first glance and that is not a good sign at all”.
“Tiwa is svelte, with an hour-glass shape to die for, did you notice that with the dress? If you didn’t then that dress did not pass the first test of fitting. Maybe the gown minus the frills would have worked better” one of our experts noted.

Beyism Cult, Religion: American Church Now Worships Beyonce; Beyists Published Beyonce Bible, Beyble

A group of 12 friends have created a new religion
based on a mortal being called Beyonce.
According to sources from Atlanta Georgia, the 12 friends created the religion one afternoon while they were high on Marijuana.
The religion named Beyism worships Beyonce
Knowles and has opened its first church in Atlanta, Georgia.
They regularly gathered each Sunday to sing Beyonce’s songs, and decided to form Beyism while smoking marijuana one day.

“We are very disappointed in the failure of the public to recognize the existence of a divine Deity walking among them,” Andrews stated. “We ask that you consider what is more real: an invisible spirit on high, or a walking, talking, breathing Goddess who shows you her true form daily?”

According to the church of Beyonce‘s members,
Beyonce was sent to Earth to spread love, joy and
peace. They don’t believe the star singer is a human being, they claim he is a creator who sits among the “throne of Gods”.
The church of Beyonce has also published their own version of the the bible called Beyble which is currently in print.
The congregation also hopes to build a temple and further expand its reach outside the Atlanta area.
Dedicated Beyists live in Canada, America and the United Kingdom.

This is madness! Chei pls God no vex o.

“Oprah Winfrey & Gayle King Likely Lesbian Lovers” Step mum Barbara Exposes Oprah’s Dirty Secrets

In this latest interview with Daily Mail UK, the former wife of Oprah Winfrey’s father, Barbara Winfrey has revealed some unpleasant secrets about the media mogul and it is so messy.
According to Barbara, the Oprah Winfrey we see on TV is a different personality from her real self.
She described Oprah as a very controlling, arrogant and manupulative woman.
Barbara is very bitter after Oprah destroyed her
relationship with her hubby and kicked her out of the home she bought for them 14 years ago leaving her homeless.
She also said Oprah Winfrey’s relationship with
Stedman Graham is a contract, calling it a pragmatic cocktail of shared secrets, convenience and money.
Barbara further said the relationship between 60 year old Oprah and her best friend, Gayle King is very unhealthy because the two are unmarried (she promised to expose them tomorrow).

Read what Barbara told Daily Mail below:

‘You find out quickly where your place is with Oprah and you get in that place and you stay in that place. My crime, I think, was to talk to her like a normal person and she didn’t like that one bit. My husband once told me that just because someone gives you something does not mean they love you. He was talking about Oprah.
Her brand is that she’s a nice, caring, generous, giving person. That’s not how it is. She’s controlling – it’s all about control. She has confidentiality agreements with pretty much everybody in her life. She has them sign their life away and she has them in her pocket.
Everything comes with stipulations but she doesn’t tell you that and she doesn’t tell you what they are. Some people can have money and be mentally rich – secure in what they have I guess. But others, how can I put it…some people you can’t take the ghetto out of. That’s Oprah, it’s who she is and where she’s from. She had
money, everybody was going to know it and see it. But she had to be in control.’

About Oprah throwing her out of her matrimonial
home, according to Barbara, she wedded Vernon
Winfrey, Oprah’s father, 15 years after first meeting him – 17 June 2000. But their marriage fell apart when she discovered Vernon cheated on her with a prostitute named ‘One Tooth.’
By her own admission Barbara struggled to cope with Vernon’s infidelity. She moved out of the marital bedroom but she was not, she insisted, looking to end her marriage.
Evicted: Barbara was first ordered by the court to
vacate her home by March 31. Oprah purchased the house in the name of her company, Overground Railroad LLC, the plaintiff in the case.

Barbara said:
‘Oprah is a woman who empowers women to be all they can be, to stand up against men who mistreat them. If she was a more decent person she would realize that what her dad did was very wrong instead of plotting against me and pushing me out of the scene.
Barbara has till the 29th of May to pack her belongings from the house.
I have lost everything. It’s not just a house, this is my home. All my memories are here. I’m trying to keep it together but there are some days I just don’t understand how I could have made her so angry that she would kick me out on the street and think nothing about it. But that’s Oprah – she’s judge and jury.
“I know people have read about this and thought,
“Who does she think she is? Why should she get a
million dollar home? But can you see it’s not about that? It’s about everything that went before. Look at how she has treated me. I laid my head next to her father for 14 years and she never thought me worthy of talking to.
Meanwhile, Barbaba promises to grant part 2 of the explosive interview to Daily Mail tomorrow.

Chei! this woman sounds very bitter.

Do you think Oprah Winfrey should have released the mansion to Barbara?

“If P-Square Breakup, We’ll Terminate Their Contract” – Globacom

“Lola Okoye Not The Cause Of P- Square Split” – 9ice’s Ex, Toni Payne Defends Peter’s Wife

The former wife of Nigerian singer Abolore Akande aka 9ice, Toni Payne has stepped in to defend Lola Omotayo over the ongoing problem currently generating tension in P-Square camp.

The mother of 9ice’ first child asked fans to stop
blaming Lola for Peter and Paul’s fight if they don’t want the wrath of God.
Toni Payne said she has gone through the same thing.
She came hard on a fan who called Lola a bad luck for the Okoye family.

Check out her tweets below:

Psquare Split Latest: Peter Okoye Moves Out Of Family House Over Jude’s Disrespect Of Wife, Lola Omotayo

Do you guys remember what happened between Peter and Paul Okoye during a rehearsal this past
Wednesday?

Just a recap, the musical duo got involved in a physical fight after a heated argument..If not for the timely intervention of their dancers, it would have become another thing.

Another issue that is currently generating tension in the Okoye’s family is the issue of Lola Omotayo, a lady from another tribe whom Peter Okoye married last year.

As we speak, the Okoye’s family do not like her…. I hear the issue started with their late mother…. My source told me that Mrs Josephine Okoye doesn’t approve Peter and Lola Omotayo’s relationship but because they already have a son at that time, Peter Okoye stood by Lola.

Their union became official when Lola delivered Peter Okoye’s second born, Aliona Okoye last year.
To cut the long story short, I hear Peter Okoye has packed out of the Okoye’s family house after accusing his brother Jude Okoye of disrespecting his wife who is currently pregnant with the couple’s third child.

Peter Okoye also accused Paul and Jude of sidelining him meaning they always limit him to the dance part of their project.

The major issue in the Okoye’s family right now is the issue between Jude Okoye and Lola Omotayo.
Before their marriage last year, Jude allegedly
confronted Peter and asked him why he didn’t marry Lola when their mother was alive knowing fully well that their late mother wasn’t in support of the relationship.

To cut the long story short, last week Thursday, a day after the twins exchanged blows during rehearsal, commissioner of Police paid a visit to their mansion for settlement but nothing is coming forth.
As we speak, Peter Okoye has contacted their family lawyer in order to divide their properties for his own share.

My source further said the issue between Peter Okoye and his elder brother Jude Okoye came open when he attended his twin brother, Paul Okoye’s wedding in Port Harcourt last month.

Recall that Jude Okoye shunned Lola Omotayo and Peter’s wedding last year despite the fact that he was in Nigeria.

Peter Okoye has moved out of Squareville mansion in Omole estate. He is now living with his wife and children in Lekki Phase 1.

I hope Jude Okoye will resolve any differences he has with Lola in order to preserve the dignity and protect the future of P-Square group.

Boko Haram Members In Army Uniform Bombed Nyanya Abuja Motor Park

The car containing the bomb that exploded at Nyanya Motor Park, Abuja, on Monday, was driven to the park by two men in military uniform.
The Head of Operations of Isiyaka Nagode Enterprises, Salisu Mukhtar, disclosed this in an interview with one of our correspondents in Abuja on Thursday.
Mukhtar also said that the staff of the company had been questioned by the police.
He stated, “Somebody that slept there told us he was there when two men in Army uniforms entered and parked a car there.
“Two of them came in two cars. They parked the car and left in the other car around 2am. The person that saw them could not challenge them because they were in military uniform. They left in the second car.
“When he woke up around 5am, he still found the car there. Because he was disturbed, he sent one of his boys to our office but we had not come by then. The bomb exploded when the boy he sent was returning and he died in the bomb blast.”
According to him, the FCT police command has begun investigation into the incident, adding that they (the management of the park) did not witness the bomb blast.
He said, “They (police) quizzed us about the incident but we told them we were not there when the thing happened.”
Mukhtar told our correspondent that seven of his men died in the bomb blast.
“We have seen their corpses. They are in the mortuary now. Seven of them including loaders and one task force member are dead.”
One of our correspondents learnt that a trader at the terminal saw the car being driven into the park.
It was gathered that a trader, who was awake when the two men arrived in separate cars had been making useful statements to security agencies in order to unravel the mystery surrounding the bomb blast, which had claimed 89 lives with 257 others injured.
Our correspondent learnt that the trader had also been invited by Army authorities to extract statement from him.
When contacted, the FCT Police Public Relations
Officer, Altine Daniel, said the investigation into the blast was being handled by the Force Criminal
Investigation Department.
He referred inquiries to the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba.
Mba, however, did not respond to calls to his phone and a text message sent to him.
When our correspondent contacted the Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen Laleye Olajide, he described the claim as a falsehood which should be dismissed.
Olajide said that those making the claim were only on a mission to destroy the image of the Nigerian Army.
Olajide wondered why those making the claim did not say it when the explosion occurred on Monday.
He said, “Why did they not say so in the beginning when the explosion occurred if it was true?
“Why did they not say it at the time. This thing
happened how many days ago, it happened since
Monday and I have not read it anywhere. People said they even recovered the bodies of the bombers, they did not say the bodies were recovered with military uniform.
“Why are people just out to destroy the image of the Army? This is falsehood, it is not true. It is just another attempt to destroy the image of the Army.”

Armed Robbers Attacked UniOsun Off Campus, Raped Female Students

In the wee hours of Friday the 18th of April 2014, dare devils attacked students of UniOsun in Osogbo at some private hostels very close to the main campus of the institution.
The armed robbers armed with dangerous weapons stormed the different hostels and robbed the students of their laptops, phones, beverages, money and other valuables.
Eyewitnesses disclosed that the robbers also raped some female students and all efforts by the male students to subdue them were unsuccessful due to the nature of the weapons the robbers carried.
It was learnt that some students worshiping at the All Nations Baptist Church located close to the university campus were also attacked by the armed robbers.
The head of the church, Reverend John Ojo said that the robbers chased the worshipers out of the church during a vigil, adding that majority of the students sustained injuries in the course of running for their lives.
He explained that robbers stormed the church around 1.30am and unleashed terror on the students for close to two hours.
According to him, “the students had been experiencing incessant robbery attack since January and the management has ignored the students under the guise that they are living off campus.
Two of the students who were attacked, Toyin Banjo (200 level) and Ayeni Tosin (200 level) said they were in the church when the robbers arrived, saying they forced open the windows of the church.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mrs.
Folasade Odoro who confirmed the robbery incident said the state Police Commissioner, Mr Ibrahim Maishanu had ordered investigation into the incident.
She said the Police Command will work assiduously to ensure that the hoodlums are brought to book as soon as possible.

How Kidnappers Use Pretty Girls Pictures On Badoo.Com To Lure & Kill Men

April 19, 2014 – How Kidnappers Use Pretty Girls
On Pictures Badoo.Com To Lure & Kill Men Members of a five-man gang of kidnappers, including a lady, have given a gory detail of how they lure men through a popular online dating website known as Badoo to a lonely spot where they attack and rob them of their valuables while the unfortunate ones will be strangled.

The suspects, Micheal Eneji, his brother, Emmanuel Eneji, Chukwu Chibueze, Gift Princess, and Lekia Emmaden Isaac, were apprehended by the Rivers State police command days after the family of one of their latest victims, Shola Olaseinde reported the victim missing.

He was later found in a decomposing state in a bush, close to a deserted pipeline area at Eleme, Port Harcourt, Rivers State. Few metres away, was also the decomposed body of another victim, who was later identified as Mr. Progress Benin Disi, a staffer of Shell Oil servicing company whose family had also reported missing since March 7, 2014.
On their arrest, the state Commissioner of Police,
Tunde Ogunsakin told Saturday Sun that the command acted on the complaint by the family of one of their victims, Shola Olaseinde who got missing on March 26, 2014.

“When his family waited for him and could not reach him, they lodged a complaint and I instructed the officer in charge of anti-kidnapping, CSP Akan to hunt for the missing father and husband.
“Through intelligence gathering, we were able to arrest the gang of four men and a lady. They led us to Ebubu, Eleme, Rivers State, at an abandoned shell pipeline borrow pit where the corpse of Shola was lying in a decomposed state. Few metres away was also the decomposed body of another victim, Mr. Progress Benin Disi, a staffer of Shell Oil servicing company.”
Explaining the gang’s modus operandi, CP Ogunsakin said: “Normally they pose as women on most of these dating sites. As soon as they lure their victim, they would arrange a meeting. The lady’s duty is to meet with the men who are normally very rich. As soon as they get them, she will lure them to a secluded place and alert members of their gang. They will overpower
the individual and tie the person up while they
withdraw money from his account through ATM.
“I hope that Nigerians will learn a lesson from this and realise that in as much as great and useful information can be got on net, it is also an avenue for fraud.”
At the police station, the leader of the gang, Michael Eneji, a 27-year-old footballer confessed to the crime and said that his gang didn’t know that the late Shola would not be able to escape from the forest after dispossessing him of his valuables.
In his words: “When I couldn’t afford to pay my school fees, I decided to go into love dating scam. I dwell mainly on Badoo chat that most Nigerian men visit regularly. I surf the net and select pictures of black models and impersonate them. As soon as they see this picture, some will send a message and I will reply.
They will ask for my number and I will give them. I also have a Tecno phone that has a special voice prompt that allows a man to sound like a woman.
Once I establish a contact, I will go to the next step which is to convince them that I will satisfy their sexual urge.
“Pretending to be a big girl, I will tell them to meet me at a Conoil petrol station, before the trailer park along Eleme road while one of my boys, Chibueze will go there and meet them as my domestic servant and direct them to my house. To convince them to come, I will claim that I live in one of the estates alone and it
will be safer to meet there so that they will not be caught.
“In their car, Chibueze will tell them to drive towards a deserted place where we will lay ambush. Dressed in police uniform, we will stop them and demand to know what they are doing in such a deserted place. We will overpower them and tie their hands and legs while we take their valuables, including their ATM cards.
“Two of us will go to the bank and withdraw money from their account through their ATM. If there is no money in the account, we will loosen the rope and disappear. This will enable the person to untie himself and go home.”
According to Eneji, they have fleeced so many men before they were arrested. “I never knew that Mr. Disi and Shola did not escape till I was arrested. I can only recall that both of them had so much money in their accounts, so we decided to keep them for some days to enable us to withdraw enough money from their accounts”, he added.
On how he lured their latest victim, the suspect said:
“Shola showed interest in having an affair with the lady he saw on my Badoo display picture. He demanded to see her, so I told him that I am free around 7pm and he told me that it was the perfect time to hang out.
“At about that time, he drove to the spot with his driver and Chibueze, who was on ground, joined him. He directed them to the spot and we took over the car, tied him and the driver up. He did not have much cash with him unlike the others. When we got to the bank, I realised that he had about N4.5 million in his account.
Blindfolded, we took him further into the bush and
decided to keep him there for some days to enable us to empty that account while the driver must have escaped from the initial spot where he was tied. Few days later, we were arrested. I never knew that he did not escape alive,” Eneji narrated.
Continuing, he said: “The second victim, Mr Disu was not my contract. It was Elijah the leader of another group that contracted me to help execute the job. I became interested when he told me that the maga (the late Disu) works with Shell company. All I did was to lure him to visit by promising him good sex. I do not know if they killed him because of the huge amount that was found in his account. The truth is that we do
not kill, but rob them of their valuables. We will sell the car, withdraw as much as we can from their ATM and disappear. We know that such crime might not be reported because the man will not tell his family or the police why he was robbed to protect his image. It is unfortunate that they died; we left them there still breathing. The only difference is that we did not loosen the rope so that they can easily escape.”
On the role of the lady in their midst, Eneji said: “She is my fiancée and I normally use her to further convince our target to assume that we are real. If the target insists that I should come and see him, I will send my girl to go and meet him. She will be the one that will lure them to the spot where we can take over.”
He also revealed that he is known in Badoo as Cindy and Empress. “Once you search for beautiful models on Google search, you will have so many options. If you want so many toasters, select the ones that expose their breasts. I am terribly sorry that these men died in the process. We found out that it is easier to collect money in exchange for sex.
“I dropped out of school because my rich relatives refused to help my mother to train us. I can only get money from them if I send a woman to go and seduce them. I am terribly sorry.”
Another suspect, Lekia Emmaden Isaac, corroborating Eneji’s story, said that it was his duty to tie victims up.
“We have done that severally and when we return, we will realise that they have gone back. I did not kill Mr Shola; all I did was to tighten him up very well so that he will not escape immediately. I was shocked when I heard that he was found dead. It is possible that snake attacked him since he was kept in a deserted area.”
Yet another suspect, Chibueze, 17, who acted as
Eneji’s domestic servant, said his duty was just to take the victim to the spot where he will be attacked. “I did not participate in the main robbery; all I did was to take the suspect to the point where he will be robbed. To convince the victim that I am not part of the set-up, they will also beat me up and I will run away. After the
operation, they will give me my own share of the loot.”
The only girl in their midst, Gift Princess claimed that her service was only needed if there is need to see the man in question or speak with him further on phone.
“During Shola saga, he called requesting that I should direct him. I then told him that my domestic servant will wait for him at the agreed spot. He later called back complaining that he was not comfortable with the route that they passed through. Unfortunately, he was already at the spot and my fiancée, Eneji and others
took over from there. I was only helping my husband to raise enough money to pay my bride price,” Gift confessed.
