Just because one member of the duo that makes up the Good Hair brand didn't do a public happy birthday wish for her partner and friend, many have allowed their over fertile minds to conjure that there might have been something amiss between the 2!

Still going on further, just because she (Kika) wasn't present at the super glam birthday party with the gorgeous theme  Hollywood Glam" that was thrown by her close friend and business partner, many even thought that, that even strongly buttressed the point further that they were having issues! But alas, what if  Kika wasn't in town, around that time?

That both are not too unnecessarily public about their friendship right now doesn't necessarily mean things have gone south! Being business partners in a thriving business actually makes it near impossible for them to be at daggers drawn, even if they are, but not for too long even if they have issues.

The 2 ultimate fashionistas of note, deserves loads of kudos for how they have built their business brand to what it is now, although there's the unconfirmed speculation which we don't actually fully subscribe to that, their Good Hair brand is actually owned or financed by the wife of one of their uncles, a chairman of  one of the biggest banks in Nigeria, even if that be so, the way they both have built the brand to become such an household name known by most who should, is quite commendable then.

Chioma Good Hair and Kika, are 2 young ladies, quite beautiful and crazy stylish at that, who have shown what the energy of youth can achieve. They saw a major opportunity in the market to sell hair which they have exploited very well and it is said to be bringing good returns for them and they are balling to the banks because of it.

So if truly there's any issue, which is actually nothing extraordinary, that's because friends, true and good friends at that can have issues at any point, what's important is that they learn from such issues and move on.

We have thought to post a few pictures of that June super glam shindig with this story.

More pictures after the break.


Ehizogie Bramor the Sayaveth interior brand owner had a humonguos wedding just about a year ago, 9 months ago to be more precise. So massive was the wedding that 2 brand new Toyota Camry cars were gift wrapped for 2 lucky guests at the wedding. The ceremony was covered by the media and splashed all over the social media too and it enjoyed enormous audience, majorly because Ehi herself enjoys the attention and she splashes every exciting thing about herself on Instagram for all to see and salivate on.

Madam dropped her new bambino, a gorgeous baby girl at that, only a few weeks back, a super happy occasion we believe that was, making the new baby her 3rd child, 1st one as the 3rd wife of Sir Kenneth BRAMOR though, who is the impressive Warri oil and gas multimillionaire.

Now the unconfirmed gist sifting in and trying to gain some ascendancy, and that some people are so very eager to sell at all cost is that, that marriage of only just 9 months, a relationship that began in 2015 which was celebrated with so much pomp, might have crashed or hit the rock! What????? If that be true, it would have meant that even this 2nd missionary journey too, like the 1st that produced 2 adorable kids has followed the same path. It would also mean that, maybe people should just avoid all the unnecessary fanfare of society nuptials and just have a quiet thing, devoid of all unnecessary attention, so that if situations like this come at all, not that one prays for that, it's just off the radar and not embarrassing at all.

We haven't yet fully believed the unconfirmed gist though, reason being that we know that Ehi being a social media sensation, who is quite savvy with the online shenanigans herself, who doesn't necessarily care how people take her views, would have put such info on the social media by herself if it were so already.

So over to you Ehi, is everything intact or has it gone south? 



It would be an unprecedented jolly good time in the state of OSUN, if by a stroke of luck Senator ADEMOLA NURUDEEN ADELEKE otherwise known as the "dancing Senator" should emerge as the next Executive Governor of OSUN state come September 22, 2018.

We can bet that the victory concert that would take place in Osogbo or many other parts of OSUN state should he win, would be of unprecedented proportions, with him being a member of the famous Adeleke family, with Davido as a nephew and B-Red & Shina Rambo as sons. It would also be a major boost for the PDP in the SW and some kind of  pointer towards 2019.

The hilarious entertainer par excellence and federal lawmaker emerged as the PDP's Gubernatorial candidate yesterday after the keenly contested Primary of his party in Osogbo, Osun State where he won by just a margin of 7 votes. He was declared the winner by the chairman of the Osun State PDP Governorship primary, his excellency, Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State.

Senator Ademola N. Adeleke, the current Senator representing the Osun West Senatorial district, a seat he won after the by-election to fill the vacant seat that was formerly occupied by his late elder brother Senator Isiaka Adetunji ADELEKE, won by polling 1569 votes, while his nearest rival Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi, the former MD of Mutual Benefit Assurance polled 1562, while the nearest to the 2, Alh Fatai Akinbade, a former SSG in OSUN state polled just 56 votes and Barrister Nathaniel Oke, SAN was only able to get 3 of the delegate's votes.

Eleven aspirants had indicated their wish to contest the Primary before, only for 7 to later withdraw paving way for only the 4.

The PDP in Osun State unlike their rival the APC, adopted the delegates system of voting to chose their preferred candidate, from where Senator Adeleke has now emerged. In all, 3448 delegates were accredited out of which 3246 delegates in all voted, while 56 votes were voided.

The 56 year old indigene of Ede, a graduate of Criminology from Jacksonville State University, Alabama, USA is the younger brother of the late former Governor of Osun state, Senator Isiaka Adeleke aka Serubawon. His other brother is billionaire businessman and dad of award winning pop musician Davido, in the person of Deji Adeleke. Senator Ademola Adeleke's known sons are the popular B-Red & Shina Rambo.

With the emergence of Senator Adeleke, it's now a straight 3 way battle between 3 juggernauts representing the 3 most popular parties in the state, namely APC, PDP & SDP. APC's Gboyega Isiaka Oyetola from Iragbiji vs. PDP's Senator Ademola Adeleke from Ede vs. SDP's Senator Iyiola Omisore from Ife.

The next few weeks in the State of OSUN would be very interesting as these 3 unique fellows go all out to outwit each other in their quest to become the next Executive Governor of the State of OSUN come September 22, 2018. 

Saturday, July 21, 2018


The Tinubu dynasty continues to extend its tentacles more and more daily as his alleged cousin, GBOYEGA ISIAKA OYETOLA, who is the Chief of Staff to the Governor of the State of OSUN, in the person of his excellency Ogbeni (Mr) Rauf Aregbesola has emerged as the aspirant to represent the APC at the coming Gubernatorial election slated for Saturday, September 22, 2018 in the state.

Candidate Alhaji Gboyega Isiaka Oyetola, totally steam rolled all others via the 1st ever instance of the direct primary method, instead of the delegates voting method that was formerly used to pick candidates. The direct primary actually allows for all card carrying members of the party to be involved in the choice of picking a candidate of their choice.

Being the Chief of Staff to the outgoing Governor for all of 8 years, since 2010 and being a relation of the National Leader of the APC, in the person of the Great Asiwaju, who is also the Jagaban Borgu, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, many felt he was the favored and preferred choice and candidate to emerge.

At the primary proper, Oyetola swept all comers in what could be tagged a landslide considering the number of votes he got against the combined total of those he contested against. Oyetola polled 127, 017 votes, with the nearest to him being Prof. Yusuf Lasun, the current Deputy Speaker of the Federal House of representatives who polled 21,975 votes, while the one who came third is the current Speaker of the Osun House of Assembly, in the person of Najeem Salam who polled only 17,958 votes.

Prior to the actual primary, about 3 of those who had wanted to contest the primary had withdrawn. One of those who withdrew citing irregularities and manipulation was Moshood Adeoti, the current SSG (Secretary to the State Government). Another person that withdrew just before the primary was Senator Babajide Omoworare, who represents Osun East Federal Constituency at the National Assembly. Senator Omoworare cited party unity and cohesion as his reason for withdrawing. The other person out of the 17 that had wanted to initially contest the primary but he later withdrew was Peter Babalola, who is the chairman of the State Civil Service Commission.

With the emergence of Alhaji Oyetola, it means he would be contesting against Senator Iyiola OMISORE of the SDP, who incidentally was a former Deputy Governor of the state and also against the aspirant to represent the PDP too. All things being equal, September 22, 2018 would most definitely be a battle royal.

Ali Baba and Mary Akpobome

Mary with Pastors Sam and Nike Adeyemi


Ali Baba is one celebrity that only a few, very few at that can deny not knowing. The fact is that he rides over the comedic terrain like a king that he is. This great guy is the reason why many, very many at that are who they are today, so kudos to him. Via him many have also become household names of repute.

Ali's wife by name Mary Akpobome is another type of celebrity on her own level, a boardroom guru of a sort, who is also very well loved either in her own personal capacity or also because she is the adorable wife of an acclaimed comedy/entertainment godfather. So on the occasion of her reaching the golden age of 50, it was celebration galore and many fell over themselves to celebrate the unofficial first lady of the comedy kingdom, where her adorable husband is the benevolent king.

Date of the birthday celebration was Tuesday July 11, 2018 and the venue was the Civic Centre, Ozumba Mbadiwe, Victoria Island, Lagos. The birthday celebration was done as a launch of the Purple Girl Foundation and initiative of Mrs. Akpobome. To celebrate with the couple were their family members, friends and colleagues, who all came out enmasse.

At the event were the likes of billionaire Tunde Folawiyo, Dame Abimbola Fashola, Mrs. Sarah Sosan, AIG (ret) Tunji Alapini, Richard Mofe Damijo, Pastor Sam and Pastor Mrs. Nike Adeyemi, Joseph Yobo, Julius and Ebiere Agwu, Bisoye Fagade, Mudi Enajemo, Toyin Abraham, Monalisa Chinda, Mabel Makin and very many others.

Young, handsome, successful, wealthy, sociable and highly connected, those are a few of the adjectives that perfectly describes the incomparable SHINA PELLER, the chairman and MD/CEO of Aquila Group of Companies, under which is probably West Africa's most successful nite club/lounge to date-Club Quilox.

The socialite and businessman par excellence, who apart from his successful entertainment company via which he has conquered the fun scene, who also owns his own oil and gas firm and is now getting set to also conquer the tupsy-turvy world of politics, is getting set to sweep all off their feet come 2019 as he wants to represent his party APC at the Federal House of Representative in his domain comprising of Iseyin (where he is a high powered, honourable Chief of his village), Itesiwaju, Kajola and Iwajowa all in Oyo State.

With the groundswell of support that has followed his declaration a few days back, the ultimate philanthropist might be coasting home to victory already whenever the time comes for people of those areas mentioned need to come out for elections.

It is very obvious with how things have panned out that the young, smart dude may have always had the political plans since which he kept to his heart, but has only just come out now at what he sees as the best time to do so. For those who might not know where the confidence that has pushed him to declare for politics came from, Shina is an unofficial political son of the great Asiwaju of the universe, in the person of the great Jagaban Borgu, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

For those with the right understanding, they have come to know now that a stamp of approval of any kind from the Asiwaju, a thorough bred political juggernaut from the South West part of Nigeria whose tentacles has spread across Nigeria is likened, to an express endorsement from the great strategist. Not only has Shina gotten the support of the SW political godfather, the successful businessman, is also very well recognised at home, where he hails from, having the ears of his king, the royal father of Iseyin, the Aseyin of Iseyin, His Royal Majesty, Oba Dr AbdulGaniyu Adekunle Salaudeen and other members of the Royal council. Not just that alone, long before now, his homestead and environs have always enjoyed the very visible warm embrace of his philanthropy on many levels.

Shina 42, probably the most recognised of the kids of the great magician known popularly as the late Prof. PELLER has always put his money where his mouth is, not just in the village, but even those around him in Lagos know him to be a shrewd but jolly good friend too who is ever ready to extend a helping hand to those in need. The likes of K1 the ultimate and many others cannot just stop praising the young man's name to high heavens.

So would the great 'Olowo Idan' (the dude with the magic touch) as he is known or called by many who know him already on his way to the House? That's most likely a resounding YES!!! 


This top boss is probably one of the most powerful presently. Even before now, he was a top boss in charge of one of the richest place. There's no love lost between him and the dude currently on the saddle in that place. Though he allegedly made that dude, they are at the opposite end of the spectrum and they "hate" each other with a strong, most probably everlasting passion.

This boss, big boss by all standards has proven his mettle as a big strategist of the most awesome kind and person of influence already, apart from the fact he was in charge of the train that swept in like an hurricane to take over a couple of years back at the centre, it is also vie him that some young people both male and female were able to hit extraordinary paydirt too on many severs levels. He was the former Chief Executive of where he is from for 2 terms also before taking charge of another massive assignment and appointment right now, for which he is quietly also stamping his footprint down enviably. Though he loves to work extremely hard, he also enjoys his play period/time very much too. Though very married, his love life, by that we mean his away game is quite legendary too.

Though his conquests are plenty, he is more known for a particular success story then. He was majorly a part of the success story of a popular young, stylish south-western somewhat celebrity and somewhat author then, who he became a good shoulder for, after her love life crashed and she had to move on. So good was he then, that he made her completely forget her pain till she found another very big boy, much older now, that completed the skyrocketing elevation then. Our dude who has a reputation for not liking to share, quietly moved on too.

Now from what we have learnt, one of those that the dude moved on to is a sweet looking, quite innocent looking at that mixed race, and she is currently just 19! Nineteen whatttttt? Yes 19!

The fact is that she only clocked 19 just very recently! And it's not like the relationship just began this year or even last year! So apparently our dude, apparently caught his darling pretty young! We are not in anyway saying or accusing him of "cradle-snatching"! Like they say, love is quite blind and maybe it's better to even catch them young at times. Is it not what is a common part of the culture or traditions of some bastards!

When you see this not too tall, but innocent looking lady, who who seem to also have a growing love for her kind, you would think she's totally innocent. Whenever our dude is in need of her, he sends for her, even via a private jet! 


Fine boy Group MD/CeO of UBA Plc, Kennedy UZOKA 

Kennedy and Lotanna Uzoka

If a man works very hard, especially if he excels very well at what he does with panache and effortless ease and the people around, both near and far can see the results of the hardwork and sleepless nights, then he is most assuredly allowed some excesses of life, especially if that person can afford those little pleasures of life that separates the minions, the ordinary from the Duke of the Manor.

So like it is said all hard work and no commensurate play makes Jack, in this case Kennedy Uzoka, the Group/MD CeO of UBA Plc one of Africa's premier banking institutions, a dull boy.

So in order not to be a dull boy, the man known as a consummate banker of many years of repute, Kennedy Uzoka works hard and therefore also indulges himself also very well in what he loves so much--in that he collects extraordinary machines on wheels or better still some of the best cars that money can afford. And according to our findings, his garage is littered with these humongous wonders on wheels that many tag as luxury cars, that would make many do a triple take not even a double take for their sheer opulence!

Name any of those cars worth their salt or value--Mercedes G Wagon and other makes of the brand, Rolls Royce etc and its most likely already beautifying the humongous garage of this quiet and super hardworking banker, sitting pretty like many super impressive chariots of fire.

K.U's garage is said to be so intimidating that many even mistake him for a automobile dealer of the super 1st class type.

The Group CEO/MD of UBA Plc, Africa's premier banking institution has come a long way from his days at Uniben many years back, where he bagged a BSc degree, before going on later to bag his MBA, finance from the famous University of Lagos. He has been on the board of UBA Plc for 8 years running now. He became the Head honcho of the Bank after Phillips Oduoza retired in 2016. He is also currently a director of the CSCS Plc. He was Deputy MD/CeO of UBA from 2011 till 2016 (that's for 5 straight years) and before then he was an Executive Director from 2010 till 2011 when he was later elevated to the DMD level.

For many that might not readily know or understand, to become an ED of a bank not to talk of becoming the CEO/MD not to talk of a Group MD/CEO at that is not a little thing. Once a person attains the position of a GM and most especially an ED that one is actually made for life! Just imagine the kind of unbelievable salaries and bonus that comes with the position, not to talk of the kind of gifts that comes one way too. Never ever forget that nearly everything that the MD, EDs immediate family members enjoys are free! Best home, best schools, best travelling options, best salaries etc just name it!

UBA Plc established in 1949 has grown massively into one of the largest financial institutions in Africa with a massive presence in 20 African countries and even presence in 3 global financial centers-London, Paris and New York. The global Bank has 1000 plus business offices with over 14 million customers!

According to our findings, once a bank is doing well like UBA Plc is, the sky is just the beginning for the MD, the EDs and even the GMs of that bank. There is a certain percentage of the annual profit that is shared. By this we mean all in very good positions in that bank or institution are on a supreme roller-coaster, that's because the largesse trickles down from the top downwards.

In fact, a bank MD/CeO can take home, apart from his annual salary which already runs into hundreds of millions, 1% of the declared profit of that bank for the year. So just imagine that 1% of the profit after tax for a year of 70 plus billion naira comes to a staggering 700 hundred million Naira for just one person alone! So why wouldn't that one be on a buying spree like one is on a magical Aladdin's carpet gliding in the skies?

Now you can understand why certain people in the banking world, likes of the Group Chairman of UBA Plc, Tony Elumelu, likes of Chairman of Zenith Bank Plc, Mr Jim Ovia and many others a verified billionaires!!!

One of those enjoying her husband's good fortune none other than the very beautiful and quiet wife, Lotanna who you can most often see riding in one or the other of her husband's several machines.


Dr. Olubukola Saraki stepping out of the plane

Waving atop his car in the motorcade

Crowds waving and hailing their hero

Senate President acknowledging greetings. 

Dr. Olubukola Saraki with the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Sulu Gambari

After 3 years of uncertainty over what could be the final verdict in his case at the court premised on false declaration of assets, it was most likely the biggest relief of his life, when the Supreme Court, which is Nigeria's highest court of the land declared him innocent and acquitted him of all charges  brought against many days back.

So Nigeria's Senate President, a former 2 term Governor of his beloved state-Kwara, a trained medical doctor in the person of Dr. Abubakar Olubukola Saraki, 55 returned to his homestead-Ilorin just yesterday and it was a return that could be compared to that of a triumphant warrior who had just come home after a victory of extraordinary proportions. And to show their love for their hero par excellence who after facing a battle that could have consumed him and rendered him mojoless, his fans, admirers and supporters alike came out enmasse and accorded him a heroic welcome befitting a returning hero that would have warmed his heart sumptuously and caused jitters in the hearts of his enemies.

The supporters who had arrived around the Ilorin Airport in Kwara State waited several hours, as much as 8 hours to receive their hero and to give him a worthy rousing reception. The Ilorin-Ogbomosho Road, on which the Airport is located was lined on both sides with cars of his supporters spanning many kilometers long. The cars parked on the sides of the roads particularly affected the traffic on that road, as those coming into town from Ogbomosho and environs had a horrid time.

So when the man of the moment in the person of Dr. Olubukola Saraki finally arrived at the International Airport, Ilorin with his entourage made up of Dr  Doyin Okupe, Dr. Razak Atunwa, Dr. Ali Ahmad & Senator Rafiu Ibrahim it was like the triumphant entry of a saviour! The rousing welcome was totally unprecedented, it was a gross display of love for him by his people, which must have totally melted his heart. With how the people came out to hail his motorcade, the 3rd highest person in hierarchy in the present Government must have felt a glow in his heart and a glorious and very large embrace from his people. Could this utter display of support and love touch his heart and make him make the decision to contest next year's Presidential election? We eagerly await his decision on that and also on whether he would be dumping his party-The APC for another party.

Responding to newsmen questions after the rousing welcome, the Senate President spoke on his battles of the last 3 years thus--He described his three-year trial as tough but expressed satisfaction that his followers never doubted his innocence as he had told them on many occasions

-DRUG ADDICTION and more, were all the packages that brought down this 1 year old marriage, according to Temitope Obasanjo nee Adebutu.

It's only in good times that all is well, nice and cosy, but when the chips are down and it is tending towards a battle, when things have fallen apart, then the common saying becomes "all is fair in love & war" and this particular saying of the sages is apparently what has seemingly become the guiding principle for Jowon Obasanjo in his current battle with his wife of only 1 year, in the person of Magistrate Georgina Temitope Adeporo Obasanjo, nee Adebutu.

When this marriage/union was constituted just slightly over 12 months ago amidst extraordinary pomp, with colossal amount of money running into several hundreds of millions in Naira spent, many never thought that even if there was going to be any form of snag which could lead to a separation, a battle of wits or even outright divorce, that it could be this quick! But alas, both parties are now at dagger's drawn ready for the guns on each side to boom rather loudly with massive effect and both sides are not willing or ready in any way or manner to backdown! Or like it is said commonly, to take a chill pill!

The truth majorly is that, that the union even lasted all of 12 months at all, is only because Tope, the wife still had hope that things could work out somehow and therefore waited for a reconciliation of a sort, not until her husband came with the clanger, and demanded that they both go their different or is it separate ways!

Jonwo like he usually does had gone away on another of his regular 'flight of fancy', to unknown destinations while remaining incommunicado. The particular one being the last, was for all of 4 and half straight months (from November 2017 till March 2018), with no communications of any kind whatsoever, only to arrive to demand for a full separation! And this was without him ever consumating the union at all.

So the frustrated wife was aghast to have received a letter which finally communicated her husband's intentions, which he had always threatened to do for a longwhile.

To show that he was very serious about what he had communicated in his letter and was bent on following his words with actions, he went ahead and instituted a case at the Igbosere Magistrate Court, Lagos Island with his affidavit of June 4, 2018, alleging amongst others- that shortly after the union was sealed, he suffered physical assaults from his new wife as well as threats to his life. So for fear for his life, he has askied for the court's intervention so as to help prevent further attacks!

Evangelist Mrs. TAIWO Obasanjo 

Magistrate Tope Obasanjo & Mrs Rosemary Dacosta Adebutu 

Estranged couple Jonwo &  Temitope Obasanjo

Taiwo Obasanjo, Sir Kensington Adebutu & Chief Olusegun Obasanjo 

Chief Olusegun Obasanjo is frightfully evil, wicked, sick and sexually immoral demonically, a sadistic psychopathic father and an unrepentant arrogant tormentor of his children who is abusing and misusing his paternal power and influence to negatively cow his children into submission, possessing demonic intelligence,a serial satanic destroyer of all family values without remorse.

....  Evangelist Mrs. TAIWO OBASANJO

Jonwo Obasanjo's mom, Evangelist Taiwo Obasanjo never wanted this marriage to happen in the first place from the get go. She did all that was humanly possible to end it, via not wanting the wedding ceremonies to happen, but she lost at the court, when the court declared that adults could make decisions by themselves and so the wedding had to go on and so began the marriage on a very shaky foundation. Maybe that should have been good enough reasons to back out! When a mother says No at all cost, maybe they should have left her son for her!!!?

The first pointer that it wasn't well at all in the relationship was when the new husband disappeared just immediately after signing the dotted lines and had to be persuaded, to even go for his own honeymoon in Monaco, France! Wasn't that crazy?

Even after he went, it was like the marriage was jinxed from the start as it wasn't consummated and it was never ever consummated all through the one year and a few weeks that it lasted! Shocking!

Jonwo finally in March 2018 after appearing from another of his dissappearing act, requested both parties to part ways and find happiness, wherever else they could. To show he was very serious and not joking at all, he went ahead to institute a case at the court asking to be protected against what he stated as consistent assault and threat to life by his estranged wife.

But the wife refuting all the allegationsmmade by her estranged husband, made a counter affidavit, claiming that rather she was the one that was hurt all through the length of time the marriage lasted.

There has been hot exchanges from both sides claiming this and that since the scandal broke out in the first place. With the way things are going its like the bric bracs from both sides are not going to end soon as both sides have dug deep and are ready to wash their dirty linens in the public view without a care in the world. At every given opportunities, each sides just releases ICBMs after ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missiles). On both sides are the mothers of their kids both waxing very lyrical not ready to be quiet. For Jonwo is his relentless mother, Mrs. TAIWO OBASANJO, aka Evangelist. While on the other side is Mrs. Rosemary Dacosta Adebutu, the mother of Magistrate Temitope Adebutu, who is hell bent on protecting her daughter at all cost, against what she considers a threatening attack! Her battle cry has been, The Obasanjo's should leave her family alone!

In this particular post, the Evangelist, has come out without a care in the world, with gun blazing in all directions, taking everyone, including her estranged husband, Chief Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo, GCFR, the former president of Nigeria and renowned statesman to the cleaners, even accusing him as far as being diabolical. In her no holds barred statement, Mrs. Taiwo Obasanjo alleged so much, many of what she claimed are far too shocking!!!! The vehemence in her statement shows unbridled hatred, why so, cannot be readily ascertained immediately right now.

We are too sure, that this terrible drama as it is unfolding and that has defied understanding is not going to end so soon. The way it is even going, maybe Nollywood is probably going to come out with a script and a film about it sometime soon. What is so obvious though is that a side is willing to destroy another at all cost, no matter whose ox is gored.

Hear Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo--

Benedict Peters

 The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has, today 6 July 2018, directed the immediate release of two properties located in the United Kingdom belonging to African Billionaire businessman and Aiteo boss Benedict Peters which had been the subject of an Interim Forfeiture Order obtained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in 2016, allegedly in the course of its investigation of allegations of corruption against the former Petroleum Minister, Mrs Dieziani Alison-Madueke.

By this decision, the court has upheld Peters’ case that the properties wholly belonged to him; was unconnected to any activities of the former minister and were unlawfully as well as unjustifiably included in a list of properties the Commission tried to seize.  The judge, Mrs Justice Nyarko found that a court of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) being competent and coordinate jurisdiction had, in a judgment in separate proceedings, made significant findings with respect to Peters’ means of livelihood.

 The judge ruled that the same court had confirmed his legitimate acquisition of a number of London-based properties including the two properties at Flat 5, Parkview, 83-86 Prince Albert Road as well as Flat 58 Harley House, Marylebone Road, both in London
and had declared that those assets were insusceptible to forfeiture under any circumstance.  

Justice Nyarko directed that in that event, those properties could not continue to be restrained by the order EFCC had obtained and directed that the properties be released to Peters immediately. Full Report to follow.
