Why Ex-Senate President Was Arrested, Quizzed

There were revelations yesterday on why former Senate President, Senator David Mark, was arrested and quizzed by the Economic and Financial Crimes commission (EFCC).

A source in Mark’s camp told The Nation that the EFCC wanted the former Senate President to account for the campaign cash sent to Benue State by the campaign team of former President Goodluck Jonathan in the build-up to the 2015 presidential election.

But the source said that EFCC was merely chasing shadows because Mark was never a part of ex-President Jonathan’s campaign team.

“EFCC is chasing shadows, all the allegations border on sheer politics because 2019 poll is around the corner,” the source said yesterday.

It added: “They asked Mark to account for campaign cash sent to Benue State when Oga (Mark) was not part of ex-President’s Jonathan’s campaign team.

“In fact, the campaign team in Benue State was coordinated by ex-Governor Gabriel Suswam. The former Senate President was kept in the dark.

“Oga was sidelined during Jonathan’s campaign and there is no way he can account for what he did not know about.”

While Mark’s camp believes that his arrest by the EFCC had political undertone, a source said the former Senate President may issue a formal statement today (Saturday) on what transpired between him and the EFCC.

It was learnt yesterday that the EFCC had raised a new team to grill the former Senate President on Monday on the alleged campaign cash suspected to have been sourced from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

Angry Mob Descend On Woman For Stealing

A 35-year-old woman was on Thursday mobbed for allegedly stealing an undisclosed amount of money from a co-passenger in a tricycle in Umuahia, the Abia State capital.

The incident, which occurred on Enugu/Abiriba Road in the state capital, attracted the attention of other road users, who gave the suspect the beating of her life, before she was rescued.

She was immediately arrested by police operatives from the Central Police Station, Umuahia. An eyewitness, who identified himself only as Chuks, told Southern City News that luck ran out on the suspect when her victim alighted from the tricycle and couldn’t find his money to pay his fare.

It was gathered that the victim, who was visibly embarrassed by the development, raised an eyebrow on the suspect because she was restless and refused to come down from the tricycle, while he was looking for the money.

The source said, “We were in our shops and suddenly a tricycle stopped and immediately, one of passengers and the driver started having misunderstanding over the payment of transportation fare.

“But what attracted our attention was when the embattled passenger started forcing a lady in the tricycle to come down.

“By the time we came around and persuaded the lady to come down, the victim’s money fell down from her skirt.”

The suspect, however, confessed to the crime, adding that she has been in the act for a period of two years.

She said, “I started picking pockets when I was living in Onitsha before coming down to Abia State and continued with the act.”

Don’t Free Me, Prison Inmate Begs Court

There was a mild drama at Ekwulobia prisons in Anambra State on Friday when an inmate, Tobias Mbaekwe, who was granted amnesty by Chief Judge of Anambra State, Justice Peter Umeadi, on health grounds, declined the pardon.

Mbaekwe, from Ozubulu in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of the state, was among 13 others freed in the exercise.

The defendant fell on the floor shortly after the ruling that he should be freed on bail, begging the Chief Judge to allow him stay back in the prison, where he said his life was better secured.

He informed the court that his relatives would gang up and kill him if freed. He said, “They said they will kill me if I come back home. They grabbed my father’s land after killing him in 1980. They latter kidnapped me and threatened to kill me and that is why they abandoned me here since 2012,” he cried.

Justice Umeadi, however, directed Ekwulobia Prisons Welfare Officer to take the defendant to the Divisional Police Officer of Ozubulu Police Station to take Mbaekwe home.

The judge directed that the defendant should be visited every three months to ascertain his situation.

Justice Umeadi said the culprit could be re-arraigned anytime the police would want to prosecute him.

The Chief Judge also discharged a 34-year-old Obinna Nwankwo Udemgba, who was detained since 2013 without prosecution.

Ruling on Udemgba’s case, Justice Umeadi discharged him (Udemgba) on the grounds of unnecessary delay by the Department of Public Prosecution to commence trial on the matter brought against the him as well as the attitude of the defendant’s relatives who abandoned him in the prison.

Others freed on bail were Japhet Onwuchekwe, Tochukwu Onyebuchi, Sunday Ulebe (Ebonyi), Amandi Dim, Chinonso Onyejeckwe.

The CJ said the exercise was targeted at bringing the court closer to the inmates, describing it as part of the corporate social responsibility of the judiciary.

He commended the security agencies, DPP, Prison officers, Red Cross Society, the judiciary and others for their efforts in ensuring that the exercise was a success.

Speaking, the Assistant Controller of Ekwulobia Prisons, Mr. Ubaenyi Patrick, described the visit as relief to the prison authorities and family of the inmates.

He said the 80-capacity prison facility housed 191 inmates, out of which, 161 were awaiting trial.

Man Acquitted, Discharged Of Armed Robbery Charges After Four Years In Lagos Jail

An Ikeja High Court on Friday discharged and acquitted Ifeanyi Igwe, a fashion designer, of the charge of conspiracy and attempted robbery four years after his first arraignment.

Igwe’s freedom came on Friday after being incarcerated for four years. Justice Raliatu Adebiyi on Friday found Igwe, in his late 20s, not guilty of a two-count of conspiracy and armed robbery.

The judge said Igwe’s acquittal followed the prosecution’s inability to prove its case against Igwe.

Adebiyi held that “the evidence of the sole witness in the case, Sgt. Augustine Okodo, the Investigating Police Officer gave no evidence of the fact that nothing was stolen, there was also no evidence from the alleged victim.

“The defendant’s statement did not contain any admission of conspiracy; the court finds that the defendant’s statement did not contain any admission of conspiracy.

“The prosecution failed to prove the charge of conspiracy beyond a reasonable doubt. And the testimony of the IPO did not give any evidence that the defendant robbed one Abdullahi Salami.

“The statement of the defendant is at variance with the testimony of the IPO, the defendant had admitted in his statement that he had stolen a Bajaj motorcycle from Salami.

“This is at variance with the testimony of the IPO which was about the attempted robbery of a member of the public.

“The prosecution failed woefully to prove the charge of conspiracy and attempted robbery.

“The defendant is hereby discharged and acquitted of the charges,” the judge said.

The prosecution, led by Mrs Bukola Akanni of the Office of the Public Defender, had alleged that Igwe committed the offences on July 13, 2013, at Agoyi Junction, Isolo Road, Isolo, Lagos State.

According to Akanni, Igwe and an accomplice, while on a motorcycle, attempted to rob a member of the public.

“The robbery was foiled when their intended victim raised an alarm and in their attempt to escape, they were hit by a vehicle and were apprehended,” she said.

She had said that the offences contravened Sections 402 (1) and 403 (a) of the Criminal Law of Lagos 2011.
