Kanye West Reportedly Tried To Sell Jewellery He Bought For Kim Kardashian Days Before She Filed For Divorce

Controverisial rapper, Kanye West reportedly tried to sell some of the jewellery he bought for Kim Kardashian, days before she filed for divorce.

According to the Sun, Kanye, 43, visited two jewellers to get quotes for the items he was considering selling.

A source told The Sun: ‘In the last two weeks, Kanye was attempting to sell jewellery he had purchased for Kim to at least two top jewellers.

Kanye recently said, “I don’t want to be connected to the Kardashian brand anymore” but he was so torn because he still very much loves Kim.

‘Although he never ended up selling the jewellery he was talking about how he didn’t want to be reminded of the past.’

The insider added that Kanye ‘really wanted to stay together but she was done’.

During their marriage, the rapper and billionaire fashion designer splashed out millions building Kim’s jewellery collection.

These included a $1million Lorraine Schwartz diamond necklace as her push present for North, her 15-carat engagement ring worth $3million, two Cartier bracelets and a vintage Cartier gold plaque necklace with a text from Kanye etched into it.

Kim filed for divorce from Kanye on Friday February 18, after almost seven years of marriage.

As part of the divorce filings, she is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their four young children: North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, Psalm, 21 months.

Kim is worth almost $1B thanks to her makeup, fragrance and intimates lines. The rapper is worth a reported $1.3B thanks to his music, concerts, and apparel and shoe lines.

Reports say neither will contest their prenup and they are far along in their agreement over how to split property.

Boko Haram Threatens to Kill Pastor In Captivity, Gives FG a Week Deadline (Photo)

The federal governemnt has been given one-week to get a pastor abducted by Boko Haram terrorists out of captivity.

The Abubakar Shekau-led faction of the terror group Boko Haram gave the ultimatum as the pastor, Bulus Yakuru has been in the custody of the terrorists since Christmas eve when he was abducted from Borno State.

The terrorists threatened to kill him if the FG fails to come to his rescue.

The Pastor was abducted in an attack in which about seven people were killed at Pemi village of Borno state on December 24, 2020. Hum Angle reported that Pemi is located approximately 20 kilometres from Chibok, where Boko Haram insurgents had abducted hundreds of schoolgirls.

The pastor had previously appeared in two Boko Haram videos days after the abduction in December and early January 2021, where he also pleaded for Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari’s intervention, Babagana Zulum, Governor of Borno State and church leaders to rescue him.

In a new video, Pastor Yakuru identified himself and pleaded with Nigeria’s President, Borno State Governor and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), the umbrella body of Christians in the country, to intervene and secure his release.

While one of the terrorists stood behind him with a knife, the Pastor revealed that he was given a one-week ultimatum by his abductors which will end on Wednesday March 3.

Yakuru said;

“I’m calling on President Muhammadu Buhari and the Governor of Borno to help me because I have been given a one-week ultimatum today, Feb. 24.

“If you want me alive, I beg you in your capacity as President, the governor and our local government chairman to save me from this suffering.

“I’m calling on the EYN Church of the Brethren President to intervene and secure my release. Please pray for me.

“Today is the last day I will have the opportunity to call on you in your capacity as my parents and relatives in the country. Anyone who has the intention should help and save me. Please release me from this pain.”

In Jan. 2020, Boko Haram killed Reverend Lawan Andimi, the district chairman of the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria (EYN) in Michika, Adamawa State.

How U.S. Will Recover $10.7 Million Restitution From Obinwanne Okeke

Obinwanne Okeke, a Nigerian ‘businessman’ who was recently arrested for alleged $11 million fraud.

Court documents show how the money will be recovered from Mr Okeke and distributed to three victims.

Details of how the U.S. authorities will recover about $10.7 million ordered to be restituted by the convict, Obinwanne Okeke, have emerged.

Court documents seen by PREMIUM TIMES covers how the total $10,679,166.54 (over N4 billion at the official exchange rate of N381 to $1) will be recovered from him.

Mr Okeke, 33, also known as Invictus Obi, was on February 16 sentenced to 10 years in jail by an Eastern District Court of Virginia following his guilty plea to multi-year wire fraud in June last year.

PREMIUM TIMES reported how the judge, Rebecca Smith, ordered Mr Okeke to restitute $10.7million as proceeds of his fraud to the U.S. government in addition to the jail term.

Mr Okeke, who had already spent 19 months in detention as of the time of his sentencing, was also ordered to undergo three years of “supervised release” after serving his complete jail term.

On completing his jail term, Mr Okeke will be presented before a duly-authorised immigration official of the Department of Homeland Security Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement “for deportation review,” said the judge.

The official will determine whether to immediately deport him or make him undergo the three years “supervised release” in the U.S.

Restitution enforcement
Our reporter sifted the details of how the restitution is to be enforced by U.S. authorities in court documents relating to the February 16 sentencing.

The documents include the courtroom minutes, as well as forfeiture and the restitution orders of the court.

The ‘Restitution Order’ and ‘Consent Order of Forfeiture’ were jointly signed by the judge, the Acting U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, Raj Parekh, Mr Okeke, and his defence lawyer, John Iweanoge.

From the court documents, the U.S. authorities will recover a large chunk of the restitution funds through the monetary judgment issued by the court against Mr Okeke.

The judgment issued in the restitution order captures $10.7 million to be recovered.

The U.S. authorities are empowered to enforce the monetary judgment by taking over assets, credit, or monetary claims Mr Okeke may have in the country.

Ms Smith, the U.S. judge, ordered that “restitution is due in full and payable immediately from assets known and unknown and including assets identified in the Presentence Report.”

“The Government may enforce restitution at any time,” she added.

Part of the funds will also be recovered from identified assets ordered to be forfeited by Mr Okeke, a Forbes celebrated young Nigerian entrepreneur.

The assets include his “white gold emerald cut engagement ring with small accent diamonds”.

The other forfeited assets are ”two cars back home in Nigeria”, and N280,555,010 translating into about $700,000 which the Nigerian government had seized from him.

In addition, the court also “encouraged” Mr Okeke “to participate in the Bureau of Prisons’ Inmate Financial Responsibility Programme” to enable him to comply with the provisions of the financial plan” and to meet his “financial obligation” in accordance with the law.

Periodic payments
If with the forfeitures, judgment enforcement, and other steps taken by Mr Okeke during his prison term, the amount restituted is still not complete, he will be made to make periodic payments during his three years of supervised release.

The court ordered that beginning from 60 days of his release from prison and transiting into the supervised release phase, the convict will pay either $1,000 or 25 per cent of his net earnings, whichever is greater.

The restitution order read in part: “If restitution is not paid in full immediately, the defendant shall pay to the Clerk at least $1,000 per month or 25 per cent of net income, whichever is greater, beginning 60 days after release from any period of confinement, or 60 days after sentencing if no confinement is imposed.

“All payments shall be made to the Clerk of Court, United States District Court, 2400 West Avenue, Newport News, Virginia 23607.”

Disbursement to victims
Three victims of Mr Okeke’s fraud to whom the restituted funds will be paid were identified in the documents seen by PREMIUM TIMES.

They are: Unatrac Holdings LLC in Washington DC, which was duped $5,429,166.54; Orient Insurance PJSC, duped $ 5million, and QBE European Operations which lost $250,000 to the fraudsters.

The court ordered that the Clerk of Court “shall distribute the funds to Unatrac first and to the remaining victims on a pro-rata basis.”

U.S. authorities said Mr Okeke and his conspirators who remained at large, through “subterfuge and impersonation” engaged in a multi-year global business email and computer hacking scheme” that caused $11 million in losses to his victims.

Thirty-three-year-old Mr Okeke, also known as Invictus Obi, had in June last year pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud.

With his guilty plea, he was able to have one of the two counts initially filed against him dropped.

He also conceded to restitution and forfeiture of his seized assets.

The plea agreement with the U.S. authorities helped him to limit his sentence to 10 years imprisonment instead of the maximum penalty of 20 years that could have been imposed on him if found guilty after a full-blown trial.

23% Of Lagosians Had COVID-19 In 2020 – NCDC Survey

More than one in five people in the state of Lagos in Nigeria had Covid-19 antibodies at the end of October, according to a study that suggests infection rates were much higher across the country than previously thought.

Nigeria’s Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the Institute for Medical Research collected blood samples from more than 10,000 individuals living in a representative sample of households in four states in September and October.

According to findings released on Monday, the prevalence of antibodies was 23% in the states of Lagos – which is home to more than 16 million people – and Enugu, 19% in Nasarawa state, and 9% in Gombe state. Confirmed infections stood in the tens of thousands at the time.

The findings offer the first detailed look into infections in Africa’s most populous country, where a lack of testing supplies has hampered the ability of authorities to fully ascertain the spread of the virus. Such seroprevalence studies are seen as the only way of revealing the actual burden of Covid-19 in Africa.

New variants were emerging quickly in Nigeria, the NCDC said, and would continue to do so until transmission rates fell.

Up to now the country has recorded just 1,800 deaths from Covid, but the head of the NCDC, Chikwe Ihekweazu, said the study findings meant it was “even more important” that Nigeria secured vaccines. Nigeria, like other countries in Africa, has struggled to secure vaccine doses amid fierce global competition.

Nigerian health officials recently approved the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine for use in the country and on Monday requested 10m vaccine doses from the African Union (AU) and the World Health Organization Covax programme – a platform working to secure vaccines for African countries. But authorities have not made clear when the vaccines will arrive.

Enugu State Sets Up Free Door-To-Door Healthcare Initiative For Senior Citizens

The Governor of Enugu State, Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has set up a free door-to-door medical initiative to take care of the health needs of the elderly in the state.

The initiative, ‘Gburus-Care’, is the first of its kind in the state and is led by Dr Melchizedek Ani and his team of medical doctors, medical laboratory scientists, nurses and pharmacists who visited Edem in Nsukka Local Government Area, recently.

The team moved from one home to another tending to the medical and health needs of aged persons and extending the love of the executive Governor of Enugu State.

Explaining how the programme functions, Dr Ani said: ‘While the Nurses are responsible for checking the vital signs of the patients, the Medical laboratory scientists conduct tests such as Random Blood Sugar (RBS), Hepatitis B & C and Malaria Parasite using RDT. While the doctors would then consult and counsel the patient and prescribe medications that would then be dispensed to the patients by the Pharmacist.

‘The medications were sorted to address recurrent health challenges of aged people such as Hypertension, High blood sugar, ulcer, arthritis, worm etc. Patients were also provided with multivitamins that would help boost their immunity against diseases. Patients, where necessary were also counseled and recommended higher medical attention or medications.

‘The mission, even though rigorous, proved to the aged people and others how much premium the governor of Enugu state places on the health of Ndi Enugu.’

The technical assistant to Governor Ugwuanyi on Healthcare, Darlington Ugwuegbe, said that it was Governor Ugwuanyi’s love for the elderly that motivated him to deploy such number of healthcare professionals to tend to their medical needs.

ISWAP Snipers Kill Ba’ana Okocha, Others In Error

Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters erroneously eliminated one of their top commanders known as Ba’ana Okocha.

The indigene of Gamboru area of Borno and four others were shot dead at a heavily protected ISWAP location called Arinna Sorro.

The enclave serves as an armoury and hideout for top militant commanders, including foreign ISIS mercenaries who regularly visit from neighbouring countries.

According to EON Intelligence, Okocha and his guards were wrongly identified by the ISWAP snipers. The squad maintained position throughout the day, it was gathered.

The shooters perceived Okocha and his team as aggressors from the Abubakar Shekau led Boko Haram faction.

Since Shekau’s loyalists were evicted from ISWAP strongholds, the camps had remained fortified. Nobody leaves or enters without permission.

Okocha reportedly led last week’s attack on a military base in Marte and some settlements within the Local Government Area. The terrorists chased out civilians and occupied villages.

On Tuesday, the Nigerian military recaptured Marte and environs after hours of fierce battle. Ground air assets were deployed in the operation that claimed scores of insurgents.

The disunity among the Jama’tu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal-Jihad (JAS) factions continues to deepen. There have been coordinated attacks against each other.

They engaged in a shootout recently over the ISWAP kidnap of some women linked to Boko Haram. The latter reportedly went on a rescue mission.

Boko Haram and ISWAP still maintain pact with organised jihadist groups – Al-Qaeda and ISIS-linked JNIM and ISGS; Liptako-Gourma Authority in Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger; AZWAJ in Libya; Al-Shabaab in Somalia.

Actress, Ada Ameh Blasts BBNaija Star, Ka3na For Scolding Fan Who Tattooed Name On Lap

Ada Ameh, the popular Nollywood actress, has taken to her social media account to slam Big Brother Naija reality television star, Ka3na.

Ameh blasted Ka3na for scolding a fan who tattooed her name on her thigh.

The television reality show star had once taken to her Twitter account to mention that she would have loved it if a fan could ink her name on their body. Her wish came through as a young lady, who described herself as Ka3na’s number one fan, took it upon herself to ink the star’s name on her thigh.

However, when the young lady’s gesture went viral, Ka3na scolded the young lady for her actions stating that the young girl’s action was wrong and that she ‘does not encourage it’.

Ka3na’s reaction, apparently, sparked the anger of ace Nollywood actress, Ada Ameh, who described the reality star as a ‘stupid girl’.

The actress said, “I don’t know this girl’s name; I saw her video yesterday and I was so upset. I think she was in Big Brother Nigeria, she was in the house.

“You went on Twitter; you wrote something that you would have loved somebody to have a tattoo of you on their body and this young lady did. You now came to say what she did was wrong after she had done it.

“That was sarcasm, as far as Ada Ameh is concerned, and that was very wicked of you and that is still very wicked of you. You know yourself, and after this video, I know that people who know her would tag her. I know that she can never talk to me; she cannot even dare it because all of us are good with our mouth. She cannot even dare it because ‘craze get level’.”

Ameh continued, “My point is that tweeting that, we don’t know that a lot of people look up to us. Some people can crazily love you to a very destructive point. You encouraged her, she tattooed you and at the end of the day, you said it was wrong. You gave instances that I could not listen to till the end because I was so angry.

“I wish Instagram had a place that you can send a voice note to. I would have done that to that stupid girl. I call her stupid without any apology. You came and you were blabbing. Ha! That was wrong. Medicine after death, you have done the damage already. You were the one that came out to ask and, apparently, when you were in the house, she liked you and she calls you her role model.”

Lagos Commences Construction Of New Massey Street Children’s Hospital

Construction work has commenced at the site designated for the new Massey Street Children’s Hospital located at the Adeniji Adele Road, Lagos Island.

Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi who was at the site of the construction on an inspection tour stated that the commencement of construction is in fulfillment of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s Medical Infrastructure Blueprint strategy and his promise to replace the current Massey Street Children’s Hospital with a new specialist Children’s Hospital that is spacious and fit for purpose.

Speaking on the rationale for embarking on the project, Abayomi explained that the construction of a new Children’s hospital is geared towards addressing the challenge of space and expansion being encountered at the site of the current Massey Street Children’s Hospital.

Said he “Government is aware of the challenges encountered at the old Massey Street Children’s hospital; we understand that there isn’t enough space for expansion and this prompted us to look for a new location that is not too far away because we want to keep the important historical heritage associated with the Massey Street Hospital.

“Luckily, we found this site and we have spent a lot of time designing a specialist Children’s hospital. It is going to be very iconic, designed fit for purpose and will serve us for decades.”

The Commissioner added that the site for the new Massey Street Children’s Hospital has also been earmarked for some other medical infrastructure projects which will help Lagos to develop high resilience to shocks.

“We also have this area mapped for additional medical infrastructure that is going to support the long term Lagos medical infrastructure strategy, as well as some additional specialist medical projects that will support the state in developing a high resilience to shocks for our State to be able to develop advanced medical infrastructure that will help us compete internationally and enter the medical bio economy”, he explained

The Commissioner while disclosing that the construction of the new Massey Street Children’s Hospital will span 18 months noted that land preparation and environment clearing is ongoing adding that fencing will soon commence.

“This will be the new Massey Street Children’s hospital when we finish. What is seen here now is the piling and you can see that the environment is being prepared, it will be fenced round and we will put up billboards. We are looking at the next 18 months to complete this project at least in terms of construction.

“Massey Street is part of a bigger plan. The first important thing is that we have moved to this location and created a new open space. A nice edifice, something that is befitting for Lagosians as specialist Children’s facility would be erected and then we decongest the old Massey Street Hospital and keep that as a satellite facility”, Abayomi stated.

It would be recalled that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had revealed plans to commence the construction of a new Massey Street Children’s Hospital and some other health facility when he recently commissioned the Badagry Maternal and Child Centre earlier this year.

Video Shows How Okorocha Was Attacked By Uzodimma’s Men

Stemming from the recent attack on the person of Senator Rocha’s Okorocha, former governor of IMO State, there are emerging facts to what transpired at the scene of the attack.

Okorocha, who was viewed from an emerging video clip made available to the media by his P.A, was seen querying the essence of the attack on him and his aides when the visit was a normal routine check of his wife’s property.

In the video, Okorocha asked the security personnel around the premises, if there was a court order for the invasion.

He was also in fear because the invaders were masked thugs. According to the video, an explanation from one of the security points to the fact that the invades were ordered from the government house in Owerri.

Soon after his comments, gunshots were heard from the background believed to be tear-gas fired by both the thugs and in-house security. That led to everyone scampering for safety.

Shortly after the fierce attack by the alleged thugs, some of his entourage were seen in a pool of blood from machete cuts including Okorocha’s in-law alleged to have inflicted on him by the thugs.

Senator Okorocha who was whisked out of the scene by his aides for safety was short of words as to what could warrant an unprecedented attack on him as a citizen inspecting his property.

Watch the video below where Hope Uzodinma boys were celebrating after the attack on Rochas Okorocha the same night:

Recall that the property in question has been under investigation following a fall out by the new administration in Imo State government.

The estate has been under lock with security guards. According to reports, Okorocha who was in the state for a function decided to have a routine check at the estate hence, he claims, it still belongs to him.

Oluwo Akanbi To Yoruba: Address Ritual Killings In South-West With Your Energy

Oluwo To Yoruba Activists: Use Energy For Pursuing Herders To Address Ritual Killings In South-West

The Paramount Ruler of Iwoland, Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, has urged Yoruba agitators and freedom fighters to commit their energy towards ending ritual killings consuming innocent sons and daughters of Yoruba in their thousands rather than attacking Fulani herdsmen.

The monarch urged agitators to be more interested in probing crimes and not attacking ethnic groups.

He, however, condemned the kidnapping, raping, and killing by some herders across the region.

Oluwo said no one can account for the number of lives lost to ritual per day, saying it will amount to disservice if such could not be addressed by Yoruba activists.

He said, “No crime is good but there are more ritual killings in the South. It consumes an unaccountable number of our sons and daughters every day.

“Only a few are reported while many were not caught. Yorubas should dissipate more energy in checkmating ritual killers and openly protest against them. Someone’s son and daughter are being killed by ritualists at the moment. There is a baby-making factory in the South. When are we protesting against that?”

Oba Akanbi claimed he is a preacher of peace and a united Nigeria, describing ethnicity as “ungodly and enemy of humanity”.

He said, “I stand on the path of peace and to me, that is the path of honor. Nigeria’s ethnic diversity is too fragile to be drumming ethnic war. I remain an unrepentant preacher of peace and a one, united Nigeria.

“Ethnicity is Ungodly. No faith preaches attack on all because of the crime committed by the few. Prosecute the criminals and probe crimes, not the tribe. Nigeria is a nation of ethnic diversities. Peace and unity are our strengths, not war. I never regret beating the drum of peace. We should rather hang on Fulanis to produce the bad eggs among them and not a total condemnation of the tribe. Even if it is the Igbo tribe that is being persecuted because of the bad few, I will stand to defend the good ones among them.

“Yoruba race is one of the best with rich cultural value. I love her people. I’ve never sold even a plot of my subjects’ land or anything from them since enthronement. Even, my salary is dedicated to the poor in my hometown. For what gain and purpose will I now mislead or sell them out? Never. What I preach is peace and truthfulness. The path to peace is to prosecute individual crimes and not their tribe. I stand on this and will keep repeating it.”

He further called on the government to ensure quality formal education and enlightenment on modern ranching for Fulani children.
