She gave us N500,000 to kill her husband in Lagos

A plumber identified as Bright Ikechukwu has narrated how a 41-year-old woman named Mrs. Chika Orji contracted him and two others to allegedly kill her estranged husband.

According to The Nation, Ikechukwu who came to Lagos from Delta state for the job, said they were offered drinks and Kola nuts and promised N500,000 to kill the man.

The suspect who was arrested while trying to steal from the apartment, said himself and two of his colleagues had gone to the man’s house at Jakande Estate, Ajah, on four occasions but didn’t succeed in stabbing him as they planned to do.

“I live in Ogwushi -Ukwu, Delta state. My friend, Ekene, called me on the phone to inform me that he has a job for me. This was three weeks ago.

I hurriedly came to Lagos and stayed with him in Ajah, I met another of his friend, Samuel. He told us that Madam Chika promised him N500,000 to kill her husband. Thereafter, he told Samuel to take me to Mr Orji’s house, so as to be able to identify the target. We went there and hid inside a tricycle, waiting for Mr. orji, whom we were told always opened his gate himself whenever he returned home. But on that day, it was his daughter that opened the gate.

We went back the next day, it was his daughter that opened the gate again. By the time we went the third day, it was Mr. Orji that opened the gate himself. The plan was to rush to him and stab him eight times in the chest, rib and neck. But Samuel, who was supposed to stab him went to buy cigarette and by the time he came back, our target had gone inside and shut the gate. Out of frustration, I went back home and told Ekene to give me my own share of the money that I was going home. But he said that madam Chika would only pay after the deed was done.

I decided to go into Mr. Orji’s apartment to steal instead, in order to get some money to go back to Delta state. But as I was trying to jump through the fence, somebody raised alarm and I was arrested by vigilantes. I was tied with a wire and beaten without mercy. I had to open up when they almost killed me.”
Meanwhile the accused woman has denied the allegation, claiming she only asked them to beat him up for denying her access to their children and selling their property without giving her share of the money.
She said: “We got married 14 years ago and have three daughters and a son. All of a sudden, my husband suddenly became a wife beater. He would beat me and leave me with swollen face. He threatened to kill me. It continued until three years ago, when he finally chased me out of the house and denied me access to my children.

I made several efforts to get my children back, part of which was to report him to human rights offices for settlement but he did not honour any of the invitations. Both families have made attempts to settle us but he would not listen.

He was served with a court warrant over the issue but he also refused to show up. Along the line, he sold the house we both built, for N85 million but never gave me any dime. He also stopped my children from visiting me and any attempt to see them always resulted in beating. Out of frustration, I told Ekene, our carpenter, to beat him up, so as to teach him a lesson. I did not hire anyone to kill him. I am a frustrated woman and I am sorry for everything.” ‎she said

Donald Trump Agrees to meet Kim Jong Un

Donald Trump Agrees to meet Kim Jong Un

The United States President Donald Trump has agreed to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the White House announced, setting the scene for a historic, unprecedented encounter.

The meeting, which would be the first between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader, will happen by May, according to South Korea’s national security adviser, Chung Eui-yong, who delivered the invitation to Trump after a visit by his delegation to Pyongyang earlier this week.
The stunning announcement is the culmination of a diplomatic whirlwind that began with the invitation of a North Korean delegation to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. Trump’s decision to meet Kim, after a year in which the two have repeatedly traded insults, is a remarkable breakthrough — albeit one with uncertain consequences.

The South Korean delegation, which landed in Washington, D.C. for a debriefing Thursday on the North-South talks, was careful to praise Trump’s influence over the developments. Chung said the US President’s “leadership” and his administration’s pressure on the North Korean regime had “brought us to this juncture.”

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement that Trump “greatly appreciates the nice words” of the delegation and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
“He will accept the invitation to meet with Kim Jong Un at a place and time to be determined. We look forward to the denuclearization of North Korea. In the meantime, all sanctions and maximum pressure must remain.”

There are many details to be ironed out before the meeting could take place, including the location. The Panmunjom truce village in the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), one possible venue, hosted meetings between North and South Korea in the run-up to the Winter Olympics.

Nokia 7 Plus Sold Out In 5 Minutes In China

Nokia 7 Plus Sold Out In 5 Minutes In China

The first batch of Nokia 7 Plus  releases in China has reportedly sold out in 5 minutes. Can I imagine ?

As soon as the virtual shop doors opened at 10:07am, it took only 5 minutes for all available units of the new Nokia phone to be sold out.

The phone sold for CNY 2,300 for the 4GB/64GB version and CNY 2,500 for the 6GB/64GB version (that’s €239 and €318 respectively).

There will be another batch available in about a week – on March 15 at 10:07am. Chances are that the new batch will be gone just as quickly. Of course, neither HMD nor the stores will say how many phones are in a batch.

As for people not in China, we’ll have to wait until April. The Nokia 7 plus is set to cost €400 in Europe (and it doesn’t look like the Old Continent will get the 6GB RAM version).

King Mohammed VI of Morocco undergoes Successful Heart Surgery in France

King Mohammed VI of Morocco yesterday underwent a successful heart surgery in France, state news agency MAP reports.

The 54-year old monarch was treated at a Ambroise Paré Clinic in Paris after he had been diagnosed with an “atrial flutter”. The surgery normalised the heart rhythm, and the king would be able to resume his duties without any restrictions.

The photo of King Mohammed VI on the hospital bed, surrounded by relations has since leaked on the internet. A full statement from MAP read:

“HM the king had on Saturday 20th January 2018 a heart rhythm disorder. The doctors of HM the King said that medical examinations carried out for this purpose revealed an atrial flutter. The ablation by radio frequency of this arrhythmia, performed today at the Ambroise Paré clinic in Paris, allowed the normalization of the heart rhythm. At the end of a rest period as prescribed by his treating physicians, HM the King will resume his normal activities without any restriction.”

Statement by the medical team composed of: Dr Abdelaziz Maouni, Dr Olivier Thomas, Dr Sébastien Bloc, Dr Olivier Dubourg, Dr Ali Chaib, Dr Lahcen Belyamani. The king, who heads the Muslim world’s longest-serving dynasty, took office in 1999 after his father, Hassan II, died of a heart attack.

The political and social stability of Morocco is closely watched by Western governments as it is the only country in North Africa where jihadist groups have failed to gain a foothold, and is an important partner against Islamist militancy in terms of intelligence-sharing.

The kingdom has escaped mass uprisings such as in Egypt, Libya or other Arab countries, but protests have erupted since 2016 in some rural areas against poverty and unemployment. Morocco has averted previous protests with a combination of limited constitutional reforms, heavy policing and hefty public spending.
