Evans claims he never killed a victim. Unfortunately for him, this new account of Chikelue Iloenyosi says otherwise.

The most recent is the former defender of Super Eagles, who played professional football in France and Turkey, the terrible encounter of Chikelue Iloenyosi with the formidable captor.

According to the former footballer, Evans and his gang are responsible for the kidnapping and murder of his father.
He gave a detailed account in an interview with Punch, where he revealed that Evans killed his father after collecting 15,000,000 ransom.
Speaking with the newspaper, Iloenyosi revealed how his 86-year-old father, Pa James Iloenyosi, was abducted on 25 November 2013.
He said, "When they took him away, they only spoke to us after five days. They phoned my twin sister. She was crying when she called me that the kidnappers had made contact.
"When we, the children, gathered, my sister called the kidnappers again and they just told us they were going to call back." They did not respond until five more days to build our anxiety. "

The player said that the kidnappers first demanded a ransom of N50m, and then they settled for N15m after a begging.
Unknown to him, his father had already been killed.
In his words: "When we paid the N15m, my father was already dead and we did not know it.
"What bothered me was that, despite our serious work of recovery, my father did not come out alive."

The last time they learned of kidnappers was before the payment of the ransom.
After sending the money, they never heard the kidnappers.
This led to a four-month investigation involving hundreds of policemen in Anambra State, who were able to trace all the kidnappings in Evans, which could not yet be found.
"The SARS boss in Anambra told me at the time that any suspect arrested for a major crime has always mentioned the name Evans," he said.

At that time, the state anti-theft squadron of the Anambra State Police Command was looking for the kidnapper who had managed to hit the vans.
Nonso, a member of the Evans gang responsible for the kidnapping and murder of Iloenyosi's father, was finally arrested along with three other suspects.
This was made possible by the arrest of a young woman, who said that Nonso was her boyfriend. She was found with a trace placed on her father's line.

"When we arrested the girl, she said that Nonso only gave him the phone to keep him safe, telling him not to put it in. We started to follow Nonso. Current IRT, Abba Kyari, gave us 18 of his men to follow us to Cotonou, Republic of Benin, because our trace on the Nonso line showed that he was there.

"We arrived and the police arrested a young man who said he had come to buy a car and said the number was not his and he only wanted to use it to call someone, One in Nigeria and the police had to let him go when it was clear he did not know anything.
"Later, we left cotonou. Again, our private tracker traced it to Lokoja, Kogi State.

"I was in Lokoja for two months with a private tracker before I stopped Nonso.
"When we arrived at the hotel with the police that day, we asked for a list of people staying at the hotel. The hotel staff mentioned a" little boy "with his girlfriend in the" One of the bedrooms.
"We knocked on the door and the girlfriend came out and said that her boyfriend was in the bathroom, but I heard a sound inside, trying to escape through the window, but SARS agents were already stationed around the hotel.

"He finally came out and said his name was Emmanuel, but I knew it was right away because we could get his picture in advance.
"But because I did not want him to panic, I pretended it was not him and told the SARS agents in his presence that the person we were looking for was an older man.

"He relaxed and came inside when I called him and I said I wanted to ask him something, I dialed his phone number there and then when he rang, We took it and it showed the name 'Kidnapper football.' SARS agents immediately threw it at him and handcuffed him.

"I asked Nonso if he knew me, he said he did not, and I told him that I was the footballer whose name he registered with. Asked if I was "General" - my alias - and I said yes. "
"When Nonso was arrested, he became submissive and pleaded for his life, saying that he would provide any information the police needed.

"He immediately told us that his leader was Evans, but he said there was no way to get Evans because he had fled to Lagos after the operation was over." At this point Nonso Has kept our hope alive.He said my father was still alive.He refused to provide accurate information, "said Iloenyosi.
The police were able to make more arrests but were still unable to find Evans.

"We called Evans to identify his location, but it was generous." Nonso was then called to call another member of the group called Awolowo to inform him that there was an operation.
"But Awolowo said he did not want to do any operation at the time because his wife had just gone to bed." Nonso said Awolowo was part of Evaba 'Asaba, a Delta State group, -footballer.

Despite these arrests, Nonso refused to abandon Evans, rather than he told the police to kill his girlfriend.
"The most shocking thing is that when the police interrogated Nonso, he said that if SARS still wanted peace at Anambra, they should kill the lady." She said she was responsible for taking care of The band and helped them buy drugs and collect ransoms on their behalf, "Iloenyosi said.
The death of his father was revealed only after an armed attack called Onyeso, helped him.

The former footballer said, "He hijacked me and said," My brother, you are a good man because you always give money so that the police can buy us food when you come here " .
"He said that if we wanted a result we should take Awolowo in the backyard and tell the police to fire his rifle in the air as if they had killed him. Would begin to confess because they had actually taken the oath.

"When the police did this, Nonso began to confess when he was told that Awolowo had been killed. He said he would take us to where my father was buried.
"We went into the forest for three and a half hours before leaving where they buried it. I collapsed and my sister who was there at the time fainted.

Pa Iloenyosi was then buried around the village of Nneyi in the community of Umueri.
However, the details surrounding his death were heartbreaking because he had been stripped off his undergarments and beaten regularly, while being kept in a cold room. These things contributed to his death.

Iloenyosi said, "As we negotiate for the ransom, they call and put the phone on the speaker so that I can hear how they beat him." My father cried and begged me to find a way to secure his freedom.

"We found him at our hometown - Abagana in Anambra State - a few days later, we found his body and started looking for Evans. One of the vital information that Nonso gave us was that 'It was a robbery when they had information about my father and they diverted to Abagana to remove it.

So I was very particular about the arrest of Evans so that he could tell us who in our community gave us the information. "
Regarding the arrest of Evans, the former footballer said he was extremely happy when he heard the news.
He urged the public to ignore the pleader's pleas, adding that Evans deserved the death penalty.
"What Evans did to my family was the most painful thing you could ever experience. When I read, he asked for sympathy, I just laughed. The death penalty for people like him is the only solution. Evans can never repent despite all the second chance he begs, "he said.

The Anambra State Police, which knows everything that happened in the case of Pa Iloenyosi, is currently working with his counterparts in Lagos State on the Evans affair.

Mark Zuckerberg visiting small towns in Iowa, USA and sharing experience

Mark Zuckerberg: I'm at the Heartland Pride Festival in Omaha, Nebraska. Until recently, the Nebraska constitution banned gay marriage. Omaha is more welcoming, but we still have a long way to go.
Happy Pride to everyone celebrating this weekend in Omaha and across the country!

In Iowa, I stopped by one of the major truck stops. It's like a small city where truckers on long trips can take a break, get something to eat, get a haircut, do laundry, get their truck washed -- or their dog washed! -- and even go to the dentist.
A few things stuck with me after spending time with some truckers:

Trucking is a unique lifestyle -- that often involves your family.
One trucker I met put eight kids through college with the money he's made on the road. He also had some strong views on the second amendment.

I met another trucker who drives from Chicago to Reno with his wife and three dogs every week. They take 12 hour shifts driving and sleeping in the bed in the cabin.

Another man I met spent 17 years in the military before becoming a trucker. His wife rides with him sometimes. She's not a trucker, but she just wants to spend time together.

I asked the truckers what's changed over the last few decades. When the truckers I met started driving, you logged your driving hours on pieces of paper. Now it's electronic and automatic, which makes it harder to drive more hours than you're supposed to. 

Some people said they want to work longer, but they feel like regulations are getting in the way of their freedom and doing what they want to do. It's tough because those regulations try to keep people on the road safe.

I asked a number of truckers what they think about self-driving cars and trucks and what they think about the future. Everyone I met was skeptical self-driving trucks would replace jobs for different reasons. Some thought it would be impossible to pack all the sensors you need to deal with things like weather into trucks. 

Others thought computers could handle the interstate but not the last mile to the store. And some truckers think we'll end up with something like autopilot on planes -- with trucks driving themselves with people in the cab. From all the research I've seen, I'm confident we'll solve these problems. But it's interesting that people in the industry don't believe this will happen soon.

Finally, I asked truckers what their biggest challenge was. Their answer: cars. So next time you're annoyed by a truck on the road, just know that they probably feel the same way about you.

I'm visiting small towns in Iowa, and just stopped in Wilton, population 2,800.
In the last generation, there has been a real divergence between opportunity available in small towns and big cities. I've seen many struggling small towns this year, but I've also seen small towns like Wilton that are growing.
 Mark Zuckerberg visiting small towns in Iowa, US
Research on economic mobility shows that your ability and willingness to move for better opportunity often determines whether your quality of life will be better than your parents'. In many places, people are less likely to move, and that contributes to less upwards economic mobility. 

However, in many places in Iowa and across the Midwest, people are raised with values that lead them to be more likely to move to other places for college or jobs, and therefore have greater upwards mobility. (If you're interested in reading more, I suggest starting with Raj Chetty's research here: http://www.equality-of-opportunity.org)


The people I met in Wilton shared these values around mobility. The mayor and city manager moved to Wilton from other places. When I stopped by the local ice cream shop, the high school senior who worked there told me she wanted to move to Georgia to work as a dental hygienist. The town development director -- who moved away and came back -- told me "she didn't want to see the town go away". Thanks to people like her who move for opportunity, I don't think it will.

Stopped by summer hockey practice in Minnetonka this morning. Many people here start skating before learning how to walk -- on local ponds and makeshift rinks in their yards.

Growing up, I used to strap goalie pads on my sister so I could shoot pucks in our backyard. No wonder she encouraged me to code computer games instead. Thanks to the players for showing me how it's really done.

Eid-el-fitri: Ambode urges Nigerians to embrace tolerance, unity

Eid-el-fitri: Ambode urges Nigerians to embrace tolerance, unity

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on Saturday urged Nigerians to embrace the virtues of tolerance, unity and cooperation regardless of their ethnic, religious or social status, saying that it was only in such atmosphere that the nation can make meaningful progress.

The Governor, in his Eid-el-Fitri message, signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Habib Aruna, said it is only by embracing peace, unity and fairness that Nigerians can put the country back on its leadership pedestal, urging them to imbibe the tenets of love, tolerance, forgiveness and brotherhood which the period of the holy month symbolizes.

According to him, Nigeria was in dire need of brotherly love and harmonious co-existence among her citizens above all other things as a means to overcome the numerous challenges threatening her fledgling unity, especially with the disturbing trend of hate speeches.

Governor Ambode added that in the last two years, despite the economic challenges, the nation has witnessed appreciable level of development expressing optimism that more can be achieved if all hands are on deck.

Continuing, he said: “As we celebrate this auspicious occasion, therefore, let us renew our faith in our nation and implore the Almighty God to restore to us those values that place high premium on human life, love for our country, love for our neighbour and sharing even as we ventilate our faith in the unity of our dear country and the possibility of her taking her proper place in the comity of nations”.

Governor Ambode thanked Lagos residents for their continued harmonious and peaceful co-existence in the midst of diverse ethnic origin and religious affiliation.

“With your demonstration of love for your neighbour and the willingness to serve, our State will continue to be a model of what patriotic Nigerians will want our dear country to be”, he said.
Hence, Governor Ambode wished all Muslim brothers and sisters in the State a happy Eid-el-Fitri celebration.

half-human looking lamb discovered in South Africa by villagers

half-human looking lamb discovered in South Africa by villagers
The elderly people of a remote South African village are convinced that a deformed, ever-born lamb that vaguely resembles a human being was "sent by the devil" and born of bestiality and sorcery.

Found in the agricultural town of Lady Frere, in the South African province, the creature was considered a human part by the superstitious inhabitants. This concept grew as the images of the deformed lamb were covered with social media.

Director General of Veterinary Services in the region, Dr Lubalbalo Mrwebi, confirmed that the lamb resembled a human but was not human.

He concluded that the lamb was infected with Rift Valley fever in early pregnancy.

Rift Valley fever is a viral fever-causing disease, commonly found in areas of East and South Africa and causes many sheep and cattle.

"Deformed lamb has signs that are consistent with early fetal development that went wrong due to a viral infection and nothing more," said Dr. Mrwebi.

"We can confirm that this is not a hoax picture but that the severely deformed lamb was born by a sheep to Lady Frere this week, which at a glance resembles a human form."

According to The Sun, a villager said: "The elders when they saw him said he was sent by the devil and was born after a coupling between a man and a sheep, then there was panic" .

Birth mutations in animals, though rarely, are not unknown. Over the years, the Internet has received many images of deformed animals, two-headed pigs with eight-legged goats. These strange conditions are normally caused by a disease or biological complications in the womb of the mothers.

Veterinary officers in the Cape East Rural Development Department are currently post mortem on lamb and the results will be provided to the citizens of the remote town.

American Leeper breaks Pistorius record in 400 metres

American Blake Leeper beat the South African Oscar Pistorius Paralympic T43 world record in the 400 meters, leading 45.25 seconds at the US track and field championships on Friday, officials said.

"It's hard to believe." To run 45.25 to break the world record, I'm excited about the future, "said the 27-year-old Tennessee boy who lives in southern California.

Leeper finished an unprecedented seventh in the semi-final race despite being a double amputee.
Pistorius set a record of 45.39 seconds in Daegu, South Korea in August 2011.

Paralympic gold medalist Pistorius is serving a six-year sentence after being convicted of murdering his girlfriend in 2013.

"What we mostly know about him is that he loves Disneyland," said John McClintock, a spokesman for the theme park.
"When I asked him what he likes about the park, he said he likes all the shows and all the attractions but he did mention that he really likes to listen to the music in the park," he added.

"I guess he finds it relaxing." McClintock said Disney has yet to come across someone as enamored with the park as Reitz, an Air Force veteran in his 40s who usually shows up after work and spends a few hours.

"His girlfriend frequently comes with him but not every day," he said. "That would be true love, wouldn't it?"

Intelligence Cooperation Among West African Police Services Ensured arrest of kidnapper Evans

Intelligence Cooperation Among West African Police Services Ensured arrest of kidnapper Evans
Intelligence Cooperation Among West African Police Services Ensured arrest of kidnapper Evans
The Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, has attributed the arrest of Chukwujeme Onwamadike, the suspected kidnapper popularly known as Evans, to information sharing and intelligence cooperation among police services in West Africa.

2. “Information sharing is crucial to tackling the menace of trans-border crimes in West Africa; it is through such exchange that we were able to nab a Ghanaian/Nigerian kidnapper two weeks ago, after evading arrest for many years,” Idris said on Wednesday.
Idris spoke in Accra, Ghana in a paper titled: “The role of Nigeria Police in national security and its contributions in West Africa”, delivered at an ongoing West Africa international security conference.

3. “For several years, Evans terrorised Nigerians and nationals of many countries across West Africa. Efforts to apprehend him did not yield the desired results until we spread our search net wider,” he said. The police chief, who solicited closer ties among security agencies in the sub-region, emphasised the need to improve the method of monitoring and surveillance, particularly among border and coastal police units.

4. Idris called for improved communication capabilities among intelligence gathering outfits in West Africa, and called for mutual support to plug loopholes usually exploited by criminals. He said that the Nigeria Police Force had 300,000 personnel in 127 area commands and 5303 divisions, adding that the force had consistently contributed to stability and peace in ECOWAS nations and under UN mandates.

5. “The Nigeria Police Force trained 250 Liberian Police personnel in 2005 and has consistently offered training slots to police officers from Gambia and Sierra Leone at the Police Staff College, Jos and the Police Academy, Wudil. “We also trained 100 police officers from the Republic of Niger on mobile police combat in 1998. At the end of the training, Nigeria donated trucks, riot equipment and tear smoke to the Nigerien government,” he said.

6. Idris said that the Nigeria Police Force also helped to stabilise Guinea Bissau in 2012, when the military intervened in its leadership and truncated democracy. “Our police personnel remained there until democracy was restored in 2014,” he stated.

7. The IGP expressed Nigeria’s readiness to consistently cooperate with police formations in other countries to track down criminals, pointing out that such mutual cooperation had become even more necessary as technology had reduced the world to a small village.
