Dailypost reports that he said;




“I have been on his trail since the past five years. He really gave us a tough time. I think he is the smartest criminal I have ever seen in my entire life.

Among all the high-profile robbers and kidnappers we have nabbed, Evans stands to be the smartest. He really gave me headache because we couldn’t track him. That guy is very smart. He never thought he could ever be arrested.”

On Kate Henshaw’s criticism of the police for celebrating and snapping pictures with Evans, he said: “Who is Kate Henshaw and what does she know? She must be out of her mind to criticize us.

Even in other developed countries, people celebrate the capture of criminals and I wonder why she is running her mouth criticizing us when she has never caught a fly in her entire life.”

‘I use human parts to prepare charms’ -Arrested herbalist

 human parts
Tosenu Lussien, a 52-year-old herbalist was arrested at Shagamu in Ogun State for trading in human parts, told reporters that he used it to prepare charms for his clients, after he was paraded yesterday by the Lagos State Police Command.
According to The Nation, Lussien who has been in human parts business for more than 5 years, was arrested just after he received a sum of N81,000 from SARS operatives. However, he claimed that he picked the human skull in a forest where he worked as a guard.

He said: “This is the first time I am dealing with human parts. I found the skull five years ago in a forest at Oko-Ode and I kept it for future purpose. It was fresh when I saw it. I am an herbalist and I have been assisting people in different ways.

This is the first time I will be dealing with human part. It was one of my in-laws that requested that I should help him get human head. He said he wanted to use it for business ritual and I promised to do something about it.




Immediately I brought the skull home, I called my in-law on phone to come and see it and he gave N80,000 to prepare the charm for him. He promised to come for the charm but policemen came to arrest me.

After he gave me the money, I received a call from someone that said he needed human part and I asked the person to pay N150,000. I did not know they were policemen until they came into my apartment and recovered the human skull.

I believe it was my in-law that sold me to the police. I was only trying to assist him when he came to me that his car business was not moving very well. That was why I decided to assist him with the charm that will boost his business.”

Confirming his arrest, Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Administration, Danladi Galandachi said the suspect usually charged N1m for a fresh body and between N200,000 to N150,000 for dried ones.

 Iretiola Doyle
It seems Tinsel star, Iretiola Doyle and Patrick Doyle marriage has allegedly hit the rocks, as the couple are reportedly no longer living together.
It was gathered that Iretiola who have four children with her husband, moved into her own apartment at Anthony Village in Lagos, away from Patrick and their children.
This is coming after the actress set records straight, when asked why she no longer steps out for events with the actor.




We are both busy people and you find that, in any one given weekend, we’ve both been invited to three or four different events where all three or four people are expecting to see us so we play it smart, we share it; if you’ve seen one you’ve seen the other,” she said.
According to Playgroundng sources,  it is unclear why their marriage hit the rocks but the duo peacefully separated and remain friends.
Iretiola and Patrick Doyle got married shortly after the actor lost his first wife to sickle cell anaemia in 1999. A decade later, he lost his son Raymond with first wife to same illness.

Tanzanian president bans pregnant teenage girls from school

 Tanzanian president
Tanzanian president John Magufuli, while addressing the residents of Bagamoyo District during a tour of the region, issued a ban aimed at stopping teen mothers from continuing school.
Magufuli accused some Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) who aid teenage mothers to continue their education after having their babies, of being used by foreigners to achieve their aim.




\Magufuli was quoted as saying: “There are many things that girls, who are impregnated can do after delivery; they can join VETA (Vocational Education Training Authority centres), they can learn sewing but they can’t go back to school.”
According to AfricaNews, President Magufuli said allowing teen mothers to resume school will encourage other students to toe the same path.
He said: “If we were to allow them back to school, one day we will find all girls who are in Standard One have babies.”
The president may have voiced out because of the pressure his administration has been put under by the NGOs who have been clamouring for teen mothers to be allowed back in classrooms.

‘Why I played strong sex scenes in my latest film’ – Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde (Photos)

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde
Leading actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, has returned to Nollywood. After a three-year hiatus, the 39-year-old is lined up to debut “Alter Ego” alongside Wole Ojo and Jide Kosoko.
PREMIUM TIMES had an exclusive interview with the award-winning actress who has appeared in over 300 films. Omotola opens up about her career, marriage and playing a controversial character in Alter Ego.

PT: You went off the scene for three years. Was this deliberate?
Omotola: Yes it was. I knew I was going to embark on a break so I starred in a few movies, which have not been released. I shot Blood on the Lagoon with Teco Benson, and another one in London called Amina, which are yet to be released.
I got to that point when I felt like nothing was challenging me anymore and I began to feel like my standard was dropping. I went through that period and I knew I needed to stay away and wait for Nollywood to catch up with some of our ideas.
PT: Do you think starring in Chineze Anyaene’s 2010 movie, Ije, in the United States, sort of placed you on a pedestal?



Omotola: Well, I knew cinema movies were the next step for me. After starring in Ije I knew that the industry was not moving fast enough and I knew the only way out for me was to make that sacrifice and just dropout.
So I starred in movies that I thought could hold forth for me while I concentrate on other things like building my business. Coming back was hard for me because I was aiming for that movie that would challenge.
I was looking for something as strong as or better than Mortal Inheritance. I knew I had to reset my mindset, I was looking for something that would excite me the same way Mortal Inheritance did. I got a lot of scripts and none of them filled that gap. I could have taken up some of them for the sake of money. But I have gone past that point.

Omotola in a scene of Alter Ego
PT: Your fans can’t stop talking about your sex scenes in Alter Ego. Was your husband comfortable with you playing the role?
Omotola: Some of the sex scenes in Alter Ego were downplayed because I’m married. But I won’t play the sex scenes if it wasn’t necessary to be included in the film. I know by starring in this movie that my fans would either hate me or love me forever.
While shooting the film, I knew I was doing something quite risky. There are several ways to shoot a sex scene tastefully. I’m all for playing a sex scene convincingly and my husband knows this.
I tell my husband, “You know what darling, you married an actor”; and secondly, he is my biggest fan. I tell him, “Do you want me to be great or do you just want me to be good?” He will say, “I want you to be great, sparklingly great”. Then I’ll say, “Ehen, we go love o” and he’s fine with it.
He understands but just like every other human being and the professional that he is, he too wants to be convinced that I played a sex scene because it was necessary. I know when he watches movies sometimes he would say, “Did they have to kiss if they were not going to kiss well?”
PT: You got pretty raunchy with your co-stars in your latest movie, Alter Ego. Are you ready for viewer’s criticisms?
Omotola: When I wasn’t even confident, I starred in a movie called a prostitute, which was released 22 years ago. If I didn’t die then, is it now? I’m ready.
PT: Playing a believable sex scene would mean going extra lengths. Do you think Nigerians will embrace such films?
Omotola: You don’t even have to “chop” somebody’s mouth if you don’t want to. If the scene is not about you showing real mad crazy love then you can’t now be showing mouth to mouth kissing or removing of clothes.
In Nigerian movies, we have downplayed chemistry. I hope we can bring that back. Back in the day when I shot Mortal Inheritance in 1995, I had to spend time with my co-star, Fred Amata.
He was already a renowned director and in those days, directors were revered. So imagine, my director who had directed me in a movie prior now acting as my lover.
I was really afraid but we broke the ice by spending time with each other. So, he demystified himself and we had chemistry and you could tell. So, I’m hoping all of this returns to Nigerian movies. So, as professionals, we need to ask ourselves if it is necessary for a movie to have a sex scene and when it is, it should be done well.
