Published

on


Korobe Menele, better known as ‘Mene’, a notorious cultist and oil thief, has been killed in a combined security operation in Rivers state.

The gun battle that ensued between the oil thief and security operatives left one Nigerian army personnel and two Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) officers dead. 

Colonel Aminu Iliyasu, Deputy Director Army Public Relations confirming the incident said, “In the early hours of today Sunday the 16th of June 2019, troops of 29 Battalion of 6 Division Nigerian Army (NA) in conjunction with personnel of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) guarding Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) Trans National Pipelines at Gio community in Tai Local Government Area (LGA) of Rivers State were attacked by suspected militants who were hitherto prevented from vandalizing 24 and 28 TNP, thereby putting them out of the illicit business. 

“Unfortunately, during the ensuing firefight one soldier and two personnel of the NSCDC lost their lives and their weapons (one AK 47 and 2 G3 rifles) were carted away by the assailants.

“An immediate reinforcement by troops at the location led to the cordon and search of the general area with the view to finding any criminal believed to be harbouring within the communities. 

“Reliable intelligence led to the tracking of the prime suspect, a notorious cultist and illegal oil bunkering kingpin Korobe Menele Loveday who has been on the wanted list of the security agencies for terrorizing communities in the state. 

“Consequently, at about 9:00am, troops cashing on available information sighted a white Toyota Hilux vehicle without a number plate, hastily driven with four occupants.

“Efforts to stop the vehicle by troops at a checkpoint was ignored. The gallant troops chased the speeding vehicle and caught up with the suspects around Kira Junction, along Ken Saro Wiwa Polytechnic.

“Sensing danger, the occupants opened fire at the troops in a bid to escape. Troops reacted and incapacitated the militants’ vehicle. As a result, the bandits abandoned their vehicle and fled to the bush. 

“However, one of the criminals was gunned down and was identified as the wanted notorious cultists and illegal oil bunkering kingpin Korobe Menele, popularly known as MENE. Other cult members escaped with gunshot wounds. 

“The following teams were recovered from the scene and in the vehicle: 1 x K2 Rifle, 2 x Magazines loaded with 52 Rounds of 5.56mm, some personal effects, one pair of vehicle plate number KRK 95DP RIVERS and some documents,” he concluded. 

At the time of filing this report, the victims’ remains have been handed to the appropriate authorities while all exhibits were presented to the NSCDC for further investigations.

Skales Drags COZA Founder, Pastor Fatoyinbo Over Rape Allegation Saga With Busola Dakolo, Calls Him “Fake Man Of God”

Published

By

Skales has called out Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, the founder of Common Wealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) over the alleged rape saga between the ‘man of God’ and Timi Dakolo’s wife; Busola.

The singer took to his Twitter page hours ago to blast the pastor, calling him a “fake man of god” as well as ridicule his church. Skales called the church a bully after news of the pastor sending police to Timi Dakolo’s house yesterday to get his wife arrested surfaced on the internet.

Skales wrote; “Total example of a church dat bullies the public  @cozaglobal and the scam of a pastor…. Gucci scam pastor… I Stand against that pastor fatoyinbo biodun stop lieing with the word of God using gov. Connection to bully people .. Coza no be church na scam smh. ok I’m done.”

He also added, “Commonwealth of Zion Assembly. see name of church it’s the end time for real Coza Chrch na scam …. baba don order Gucci wey him go use today’s offering go buy.”

You all would recall we brought you news about Timi Dakolo raising an alarm on his Instagram page yesterday after police stormed his house to try to whisk himself and his wife to Abuja on account that Pastor Fatoyinbo has levelled some allegations towards them.

This has however made a lot of celebrities furious as to why the pastor would take such action even when he hasn’t answered to the allegations levelled against him by Busola that he raped her about 2 decades ago.

This could be the major reason Skales has decided to try to ‘tear apart’ the pastor, expressing his anger in the most daring manner.

This however is looking to be a wrong move for Skales as social media users have started to lambast him for making such move when it has not been established that the pastor truly did what Busola accused him of. Some have opined that Skales showed a lack of sensitiveness as even though criticsm of the pastor to a large extent is allowed, he could have been constructive about it or be intelligent about the process.

A U.S based Nigerian music management company, “Always On Cash (A.O.C)” have filed a law suit against music superstar, Davido, after they allegedly paid him the sum of 4 million naira to feature their artiste in a written contract in which he didn’t honour.

One of the representatives of the record and management label also reveals they have previously sued Davido to court in which he was summoned 3 times and refused to show up 3 times.

The representative however reveals all they want is Davido to show up in court at the next hearing so they could sort things out amicably.

A statement was released on their official Instagram page and it reads; “This is to officially notify the public that we the management of A.O.C (Always on Cash) Record Label are totally displeased with the dubious acts of David Adedeji Adeleke popularly known as DAVIDO ( @davidoofficial ) over unfulfilled 4million Naira song featuring contract with our artist Tejiri Ochuko Ibhihwiori ‘’TJay’’.

Four Million Naira payment made in FULL and DAVIDO did not fulfill the contract since January 2019, neither was any attempt for refund made.

The matter was reported to the police when several attempts to reach his management failed. It was presented for hearing in court for 3 consecutive times and neither he or any representative from his management appeared before the court to state their claims.

We are hereby pleading that he or his management appears before the court on the next hearing set for 23rd August 2019 so that the matter can be settled amicably by law as all we want is the refund of the 4 million naira paid for the unfulfilled contract.”

Timi Dakolo Declares War On COZA Founder, Pastor Fatoyinbo After He Tries To Get His Wife Arrested

Published

By

Timi Dakolo has declared war on the founder of Common Wealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo after the latest action of the preacher to get him and his wife arrested and whisked to Abuja.

The singer who already raised public alarm after “strange” armed men stormed his house earlier this evening seems to have been able to identify pastor Fatoyinbo as the facilitator of the strange action.

A letter has been sent to Timi and his wife; Busola by the Nigerian police as they have claimed to be investigating a case that is in connection with criminal conspiracy, falshood, mischief and threat to life which apparently has made Timi really furious and promising to go toe-to-toe with Biodun Fatoyinbo in a legal battle.

Timi wrote; “Our lawyers had told us to get ready for this letter. We have long been ready for this type of institutionalized intimidation and dirtiness. Investigating officials have frustrated as a result of underhand delay? Dirty bloggers are fabricating things that cover the truth , going to the IG’s people under dark to force this case to be posted to Abuja? Now this: a false investigation in Abuja when our own petition filed since June has not been answered and NO INVITATION HAS BEEN MADE TO THE ACCUSED IN A RAPE CASE????! NOT ONE MOVEMENT TOWARDS JUSTICE??? Rubbishing the legal and criminal system ?

“And sending a bus load of questionable armed “policemen” and shady men lying in wait to intimidate my wife and children today, forcing their way into my home? Is that how the REAL police delivers a letter ? This is best you can do? This is why all the hurting women and families havent come out with HORRIBLE THINGS DONE TO THEM???!!
You picked the wrong one and you picked the wrong time. Nigerians are more awake than you think .

“I will fight for my wife and my children -it’s the promise I made with my life and one I intend to keep .I will defend them from the unrelenting attack of a weak man who thinks he can use money and power to cover for all of his crimes.
Like I said ,we have since been ready .
GIVE US THE FIRE, THEN WATCH ME WORK!”
