The Nigerian Union in South Africa on Thursday said that another Nigerian, Mr Uchenna Eloh, has been killed in the Western Cape Province of that country.

Kanayo Onwumelu, Chairman, Western Cape chapter of the union, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on telephone from Cape Town that Eloh was strangled to death by South African policemen.
NAN reports that Eloh hailed from Eziagu in Eziagu Local Government Area of Enugu State.
“We want to call the attention of Nigerian Government to the senseless killing of innocent Nigerians by the police in South Africa.

“At about 11.00 a.m. South African time on Wednesday, a Nigerian, Uchenna Emmanuel Eloh, popularly known as “Monkey’’, was killed by a South African police officer.
“He was walking out of his house toward the bus station when a police van stopped to search him, suspecting that he might be in possession of illegal substance.

“Three policemen accosted Eloh, one of them, by the name Williams, held him on the neck suspecting that he swallowed a substance, while another police officer held him by the legs,’’ he said.
The union official alleged that the policemen dragged Eloh on the ground until he started foaming and suffocated to death on the spot.

“This is not the first time such senseless killing of innocent Nigerians was carried out by South African police officers.
“We have reported similar killings to the South African Government and Nigeria High Commission in South Africa and nothing was done to bring the culprits to book.

“We want the Nigerian Government to intervene to stop this brutality against innocent Nigerians and stop killing Nigerians out of hatred, racism or xenophobia,’’ he said.
Ikechukwu Anyene, President of Nigerian Union in South Africa, who also confirmed the incident, called for an end to the incessant killing of Nigerians in South Africa.

“Our government needs to do something urgently to make it clear that Nigerian lives matter.
“We have made suggestions on what can be done, but it is now clear to us that the endless talks cannot yield any positive result,’’ Anyene said.
He said that the union had engaged a lawyer to take up the case against South African Police Service.
“But, this kind of legal service should form part of consular services to provide legal services to victimised Nigerians,’’ Anyene said.

The union said that the police have opened an inquest into the case.
NAN recalls that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, had in February said that a total 116 Nigerians have been killed in South Africa through
 extrajudicial means in the last two years.
The presidential aide had said during a meeting  with the South African High Commissioner to Nigeria, Lulu

Louis Mnguni in Abuja that nearly seven in 10 of the killings were carried out by the South African police.

The Police in Ogun state on Wednesday arrested a 77-year-old pastor, Samuel Babatunde and two other suspects in connection with the discovery of suspected human parts buried inside a church.
Babatunde is the founder of Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Itedo Isinmi Ayo Parish, Egan Road in Iyana-Iyesi area of Ota in Ado-Odo Ota LGA of Ogun.
The state Police Commissioner, Ahmed Iliyasu, who paraded the pastor in Ota, told reporters that the discovery followed the arrest on Saturday of a suspected serial kidnapper, Jeremiah Adeola.
He said that Adeola, 32, who specialised in kidnapping children, confessed that the pastor of the white garment church was the receiver of the abducted children.
The CP added that a 43-year-old herbalist, Haruna Afolabi, was among the suspects, who allegedly buried the human parts at the entrance of the church.
According to the police boss, operatives attached to the police Area Command in Ota on Sunday received intelligence about Adeola and arrested him.
Iliyasu said: “On the strength of the intelligence, detectives from Ota Area Command were detailed to effect the arrest of the suspect.
“At about 10.20 a.m. of the date, their efforts paid off when the said Jeremiah Adeola was arrested.
“On interrogation, Adeola confessed being a serial kidnapper and mentioned a prophet of a white garment church as the receiver of the kidnapped children.
“Upon interrogation, Adeola was taken to the house/church the said prophet at Iyana-Iyesi Ota, where one Prophet Samuel Babatunde, 77 years, the pastor in charge of the church and one Haruna Afolabi, 42 years, a traditional worshiper, were arrested.
“The floor of the church was dug as described by the first suspect and parts suspected strongly to be human parts were dug out,” Iliyasu said.
The commissioner said the police command would conduct forensic investigation into the case.
He assured that all those found guilty of the crime would be brought to justice, adding that Ogun State would never be a safe haven for criminals.
Speaking in an interview with newsmen, the pastor denied the allegation levelled against him.
Babatunde explained that a pig was buried alive inside the church contrary to claims that human parts were buried there.
He said that he carried out the act in order to bring good fortune, prosperity and comfort to his congregation.
Babatunde said though he met Adeola at a prayer mountain in Ibadan, he never had any dealing with the alleged serial kidnapper, whom he accused of being mentally unstable.
However, Adeola insisted that the pastor was the receiver of some kidnapped children.
He said the cleric paid him N50, 000 each for the two children he supplied to him

A Nigerian, simply identified as Anthony I, who sought asylum in Germany under false pretences is on trial in Muenster, Germany  for stabbing and killing his girlfriend earlier this year.
Prosecutors said the 28 year-old Anthony brutally murdered Soopika Paramanathan, a 22-year-old German student known locally as the “Angel of Ahaus” for her volunteer work with refugees.
German police have not released Anthony I.’s full last name. And Anthony in court had kept mute, according to a report by Bild, the German tabloid.
Anthony I. attacked Paramanathan on Feb. 11 after she ended their relationship, prosecutors said, allegedly stabbing her repeatedly with a long-bladed knife in her head, neck and breasts.He was said to have stabbed the lady 22 times.
She sprayed his face with pepper spray in defence and was raced to a local hospital but later died after suffering substantial blood loss.

Anthony I. was stuffing Paramanathan’s body into a large suitcase on the street when witnesses said they spotted him. He escaped from the crime scene and was caught by police in Basel, Switzerland two days later.
Paramanathan’s father, Sivasamboo, said his daughter “felt threatened by him” in the days leading up to the attack and was afraid, according to German tabloid Bild.
The couple met in 2016 at a local refugee home in Ahaus, Germany, where Anthony I. was living and Paramanathan volunteered.
Anthony I. came to Germany in 2015,after spending three years in Italy.

He wrote in his asylum application that he was forced to leave his country in 2012 for being homosexual and he had fought against the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram in Nigeria. The application was in the process of being rejected, because it dripped with lies.
He is facing life imprisonment when an expected guilty verdict is handed down on September 20.
Soopika’s lawyer Hans-Peter Maas said; ‘She was a good person. On her birthday she sent gifts to homeless people in Sri Lanka

Global hunt for Nigerian cyber criminal spreading malware globally to steal money. Illustration by Cyber Crime Watch
A Nigerian working alone around Abuja  has stirred a global hunt as he orchestrated numerous malware infection campaigns targeting more than 4,000 organisations globally over the past four months, a cyber security company claimed. quoting Check Point security researchers said the attacks targeted various companies in industries such as oil & gas, manufacturing, banking, and construction, in an attempt to steal data and commit fraud.
Many of the companies are leading international names and some have had their defenses breached by the attacks, the security researchers reveal.

According to Check Point, at least a dozen companies confirmed they have been infected during the campaign, including a marine and energy solutions company in Croatia, a transportation company in Abu Dhabi, a mining company in Egypt, a construction company in Dubai, an oil & gas firm in Kuwait, and a construction organization in Germany.
Despite the large scale campaign, behind it is not an expert gang of cybercriminals or a nation state actor, but “a relatively unskilled man in his mid-20s, operating from a location near the capital of Nigeria,” Check Point discovered.

Working on his own, the Nigerian  uses fraudulent emails seemingly coming from oil and gas giant Saudi Aramco, the world’s second largest daily oil producer. The phishing messages target financial departments within companies in an attempt to trick employees into revealing company bank details or into opening a malware-infected attachment.

The malware used in these attacks includes NetWire, a remote access Trojan that provides its operator with full control over infected machines, and Hawkeye, a software for logging key strokes (malware already associated with Nigerian cybercriminals). The attacks eventually resulted in a total of 14 successful infections. The cybercriminal ended up earning thousands of dollars in the process, the researchers said.
Despite showing a low level of cyber-skills, using crude and unsophisticated fraudulent emails, with almost no research or social engineering involved in creating them, the attacker was successful in his attempts.

The attacker used generic email titles, phrased as “Dear Sir/Ms,” sent the same email to numerous targets, “all in blind carbon copy, urging victims to send back banking details, perhaps for future scams.” He sent the emails from email addresses, and
The fraudster used old, generic and readily available online malware, as well as freeware to ‘scrape’ email addresses from corporate websites and used them as targets for his campaigns.
“The fact that the campaign was still effective, despite using only basic cyber-criminal techniques, highlights just how much of a problem these business email compromise (BEC) attacks have become,” Check Point said.

Since uncovering the campaign and establishing its origins, Check Point’s research team has notified law enforcement authorities in Nigeria and internationally and shared its findings with them.
Checkpoint said the Nigerian in his 20s operates  social media accounts, where you he uses the motto: ‘get rich or die trying’.
His attack campaign uses fraudulent emails which appear to originate from oil and gas giant Saudi Aramco, the world’s second largest daily oil producer, targeting financial staff within companies to trick them into revealing company bank details, or open the email’s malware-infected attachment.
Last year, the FBI revealed that losses caused by BEC scams exceeded $3.1 billion. Victims are estimated to lose between $25,000 and $75,000 on average, per attack. However, it’s not only financial losses that victims should be concerned about, but also the fact that “the malware used by the criminal to infect organizations gives remote control over infected machines, and can perform keylogging functions. This enables harvesting of a variety of information from infected machines, such as details on the companies’ operations, assets and intellectual property.” Such details could be worth much more than the thousands of dollars obtained by fraud, Check Point says.

Another alarming aspect was that some of the targets are energy and infrastructure companies, which the unsophisticated cybercriminal was able to easily breach. Not only was the attacker able to compromise the networks of several large organizations, but he also managed to distribute his malware globally and remain under the radar for a long while.
“This highlights the need for all organizations to improve their security to protect against phishing and business email compromise scams, and to educate their employees to be cautious about opening emails, even from companies or individuals that they recognize,” Check Point said


ISIS using brutal punishments in desperate bid to secure Syria regime

ISIS are using increasingly brutal punishments as part of a wave of executions carried out in a desperate bid to establish control of their regime in Syria.

They were released as the jihadists battle Syrian government and Kurdish Arab forces to hold on to the territory and Raqqa further south.
The pictures released by Amaq show a ‘gay man’ being thrown from a roof, a man being lashed for premarital sex, a thief getting his hand cut off and a ‘non-believer’ being shot in the back of the head.
The Human Rights Campaign recently highlighted how ISIS has ISIS has brutalised the people living under its regime.

Two female hunters in Taraba, Aisha Bakari and Habiba Husseini, on Tuesday said they were ready to assist in flushing out kidnappers from Taraba if engaged by the State Government.
The hunters disclosed this in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Jalingo.
They said fighting kidnappers and insurgency required not only force and arms but also indepth knowledge of the conflict terrain and the people around it.

Bakari, who referred to herself as “Queen of Adamawa hunters’’, said her colleagues in the remotest parts of Taraba were ready to fish out notorious kidnappers in the state and hand them over to the security operatives.
“All that is required is for the state government to hold a formal meeting with our group and work out the modalities,’’she said.

She recounted how a team of hunters she led to northern Adamawa recorded success in flushing out Boko Haram insurgents from the area.
She also promised to use the same strategies adopted in that operation in Taraba.
Bakari said hunters had recorded high level of success in the past four years in battles in Gombi, Maiha and Madagali, noting that the success came with a price as many of them also lost their lives in the battle.
“Our people are combat ready to flush out terrorists from Madagali but we are constrained by shortage of arms and vehicles.
“Boko Haram is using sophisticated weapons, but our people lack enough rifles and ammunition to face them,” the hunter said.

She called on governments at all levels to support hunters with weapons and vehicles so as to motivate them to face the insurgents head on.
On her part, Husseini said that female hunters in Taraba played a significant role in the recent liberation of many kidnapped victims from their captors.

“We provide useful information to security operatives. I assure you, we will do more if government engages us.
“All we need is support from government and we will perform wonders,”she said.
Hussaini called on women in the state to summon courage and join the hunters association, saying that women were poorly represented in the war against kidnapping and insurgency.


Boy awarded $1M in emotional damages after having sex with teacher in her classroom

The family of a schoolboy who had sex with a teacher has been awarded $1million in emotional damages.
That’s on top of the $125,000 they also received from the Oklahoma school district after settling a lawsuit claiming it tried to cover up what had happened.
Former teacher Jennifer Caswell, 31, was sentenced to ten years in prison following revelations she had slept with the 15-year-old in 2015.
At the time, she appeared on Dr Phil and said she felt ‘terrified’ after the encounter and ‘couldn’t believe I’d done something like that’.
Talking about how the incident unfolded, she said: ‘He came in, I was working on things. He kept coming closer to me and I would walk away to another part, another area of the classroom.

‘He just walked up to me and kissed me, and it kinda went from there.’
Caswell said the student was in her classroom for around two hours, but the sexual activity lasted around ‘ten to 15 minutes’.
Probed on exactly how the sex happened, she explained: ‘I was walking around the classroom straightening up the desks and, I guess it was standing up. I kept on saying ‘no, no we can’t do this’. I mean, he wasn’t forcing me, I could have easily just walked out of my classroom, but I didn’t. But I was resisting, because I knew it was wrong.’
A lawyer for the victim’s family said he was left traumatized by the incident, reports NewsOK.
Attorney Charles Watts said: ‘The truth is that this has a terrible effect on a child. You can expect in his future life that he will have a hard time with relationships.’
The family laid out a lawsuit in which is accused the school of trying to cover up Caswell’s actions by asking the victim not to talk about what had happened.

A driver, Yinka Adebanjo, has confessed to orchestrating the kidnap of his bosses at Odogunyan, Ikorodu, Lagos State. Adebanjo, aka Esho, was a driver at Mateco Industry West Africa Limited, where the victims, Jamie Larcar and Mario Maglundo (Filipinos) worked.

Adebanjo connived with an herbalist, Ishau Awokoya, and one Seun Ogunjobi, to abduct the expatriates. Members of the 7-man gang, had pretended to be vigilantes guarding some Ikorodu communities against members of the dreaded Badoo cult.

They reportedly laid in ambush for the Filipinos, who were in a Jeep driven by Adebanjo. The compromised driver was ‘ordered’ to disembark from the vehicle as one of his accomplices took over the steering and drove away the victims.

“They took the victims to the herbalist’s house in Iperu-Remo, Ogun State, on July 5, 2017, and kept them for 9 days. The victims were released after collecting the sum of N4m as ransom.

Following their release, a team of the Anti-kidnapping unit of the state police command tracked down the driver to Ikotun, Lagos. He was said to have led the detectives to arrest the herbalist and Ogunjobi.

The suspects were paraded by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni. Charms and other ritual paraphernalia recovered from the suspects were also displayed.

Adebanjo confessed to providing information that led to the abduction of his bosses, adding that he got N400,000 from the N4m ransom.

Zimbabwe’s first lady Grace Mugabe, has handed herself over to South African Police after allegedly assaulting a woman at a Johannesburg hotel, Police Minister Fikile Mbalula, said on Tuesday.

“She is not under arrest, because she cooperates,’’ Mbalula told the broadcaster eNCA.

The 52-year-old wife of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is in South Arica to seek medical treatment for an ankle injury sustained in a car accident, the website News24 reported.

The website identified Mugabe’s victim as model Gabriella Engels, 20 Engels told the website she was visiting Mugabe’s two sons at a hotel in Johannesburg’s upmarket Sandton neighbourhood late on Sunday.

“When Grace entered I had no idea who she was. She walked in with an extension cord and just started beating me with it,’’ Engels was quoted as saying.

The model said Mugabe accused her of living with her sons.

Gauteng province’s top security official Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane, said she was “deeply appalled and devastated’’ by reports that “people of Grace’s caliber’’ should exhibit such behaviour.

Nkosi-Malobane’s spokesperson Busaphi Nxumalo, forwarded to dpa photographs of a young woman with a severe head wound, saying she was the one Mugabe had attacked.

Reports said that diplomatic immunity would not protect Mugabe, because she was in South Africa privately.

Mbalula said she would soon appear in court.

Grace Mugabe is tipped as one of the likely successors to her husband, 93, who has ruled the southern African country since 1980.

Zimbabwe's President Mugabe's wife, Grace Mugabe, has been accused of assaulting a 20-year-old South African model, Gabriella Engels, she found at a hotel in Sandton‚ Johannesburg‚ around 9pm on Sunday night visiting the Zimbabwean president’s two sons.

“We were chilling in a hotel room‚ and they were in the room next door‚” Engels said.

“She came in and started hitting us. The front of my forehead is busted open. I’m a model and I make my money based on my looks‚” she said.

According to Gabriella Engels who suffered gashes to her forehead and scalp, she was beaten with an extension chord alongside her two friends while the two sons ran away and the Mugabe bodyguards looked on.

“What is a girl compared to a woman beating you and 10+ bodyguards standing back‚ leaving her to do this sh*t‚” she tweeted about the incident.

However after she reported the incident to the Police on Sunday Night, she was shown away by the police officer on duty‚ who told her to first seek medical attention.

Gabriella’s mother‚ Debbie‚ said they were going to the police station to open an assault case on Monday.

“When she got home I was already sleeping. She was in so much shock‚ she couldn’t tell me what happened‚” Debbie said.

“I rushed her to the hospital to get stitches and when she eventually calmed down‚ she told me she was assaulted by Mugabe’s wife‚” she said.

Garnet Basson‚ CEO of The Capital hotel group‚ where the alleged assault took place‚ said there was an incident that prompted management to ask guests to leave the hotel, as Zimbabwean news had reported before now that Grace was in South Africa for treatment following a “freak accident” in which she injured her right ankle.

“What happened in the hotel room‚ I don’t have a comment on ... I can’t disclose the name. We did have guests removed from the premises due to a scenario where we thought it was not good for them to stay there.

“It was almost a forceful exit‚ but it wasn’t. It was a decent exit after about a half an hour of discussions.”

A man who was arrested by the police in Niger State for alleged robbery, has denied the crime, saying he was being coerced by the police to make a confessional statement.

25-year-old Kingsley Ibe was arrested by the police Special Anti-Robbery Squad on the allegation that he connived with other hoodlums to rob one Yusuf Isah of Gauraka, Sabo-Wuse council.

The police claimed that Ibe and his gang members carted away Gauraka’s properties including a 49-inch LG television, a 32-inch Panasonic television, four wrist watches, one Techno handset, one Samsung galaxy S3 handset, one Infinix Note 4 phone, jewelry, one Jingcheng motorcycle and N200,000 cash.

But Ibe vehemently denied being a robber, saying he would rather die than admit to a crime he did not commit, insisting that the police knew the real culprits but refused to go after them.

Punchng quoted him as saying: “I don’t know why police are keeping me here. I am not an armed robber and they cannot force me to be one. It is better I die for the offence I committed than to die for what I know nothing about.

I am not a thief and cannot admit to what I knew nothing about. The motorcycle they accused me of stealing was not stolen by me, the police knew where it was coming from."

He revealed that it was because he had no one to speak for him that the police were plotting to implicate him. But the police spokesperson in the state, Comfort Olawumi, said the suspect was sighted by the complainant’s sibling, Usman Ithado, with the stolen motorcycle, adding that he was given a chase before he was apprehended by police operatives.

She added that the police recovered the motorcycle from the suspect, noting that he would be charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded.

Terrorists shoot tourists dead in Burkina Faso

Suspected Islamic extremists opened fire at a Turkish restaurant in the capital of Burkina Faso late Sunday, killing at least 18 people in the second such attack on a restaurant popular with foreigners in the last two years.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the violence, which continued into the early hours Monday. Gunfire could be heard almost seven hours after the attack began.

Communication Minister Remi Dandjinou told journalists that at least 18 people were dead and eight others wounded, according to a provisional toll. He said two of the attackers were also killed.
The victims came from several different nationalities, he said. At least one of the dead was French.
Security forces arrived at the scene with armored vehicles after reports of shots fired near Aziz Istanbul, an upscale restaurant in Ouagadougou. The attack brought back painful memories of the January 2016 attack at another cafe that left 30 people dead.

Police Capt. Guy Ye said three or four assailants had arrived at the Aziz Istanbul restaurant on motorcycles, and then began shooting randomly at the crowds dining Sunday evening.
Burkina Faso, a landlocked nation in West Africa, is one of the poorest countries in the world. It shares a northern border with Mali, which has long battled Islamic extremists.
The three attackers in the 2016 massacre were of foreign origin, according to al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, which claimed responsibility in the aftermath along with the jihadist group known as Al Mourabitoun.

But the terror threat in Burkina Faso is increasingly homegrown, experts say.
The northern border region is now the home of a local preacher, Ibrahim Malam Dicko, who radicalized and has claimed recent deadly attacks against troops and civilians.
His association, Ansarul Islam, is now considered a terrorist group by Burkina Faso’s government.

Ongoing police investigation of suspected kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, alias Evans, has revealed that he was also involved in crimes in South Africa, it was gathered yesterday.

That is besides his alleged illegal procurement of a Ghanaian passport that bears his passport photograph but a Ghanaian name.

Police spokesman, Mr. Moshood Jimoh, told The Nation that the investigation has also led to the arrest of more associates of Evans who were found to be probably wealthier and living bigger than him.

Evans is spending his second month in police custody and is expected to be formally charged within the next one month, Jimoh said.

He said:”You may recall that a Federal High Court granted us a three month remand warrant for Evans. We are just into the second month now and before the expiration of the third month, it is expected that we should be taking him to court.

“The little time is to ensure that we conduct a thorough and detailed investigation.
“This is somebody that committed crimes across several states and even went outside Nigeria.

“You may recall that he illegally acquired a Ghanaian passport with a Ghanaian name but with his passport photograph.

“He was also fingered for involvement in other crimes in South Africa and other places. So we need a little time to properly round things up and ensure that he is properly prosecuted because Nigerians will not be happy if we lose such a case in court on the basis of technical matters.”

He said relations of former victims of Evans’ are among those being detained by the police.

They are suspected of giving information about the former kidnap victims to Evans.

He advised the public to be security conscious at all times to avoid falling prey to kidnappers.

His words: “He (Evans) did things with lots of such people and we have lots of suspects who had collaborated with him in one way or the other; we even have other prime suspects apart from those that were arrested with him and paraded.

“Sometimes, it is easy to jeopardise your security by being a good Samaritan through acts like offering someone a lift in your car because there are persons who can take advantage of your kind or welcoming nature.

“All citizens equally need to know where potential help can come from in security emergency situations like where police or other security people are located, the right telephone numbers to call and so on.

“The Inspector-General of Police is taking the battle to criminals but maximum security is achieved through the alertness of everybody in the interest of everybody and such attitude goes a long way to prevent many people from becoming victims of crimi
