A 52-year-old man, Mohammed Lawal was yesterday sentenced to a 6-month jail term for stealing from Senator Emmanuel Nkwocha in an Abuja hotel recently.

Mohammed Lawal reportedly pretended to beg from the Senator when he dipped his hand into the lawmaker’s pocket stealing an undisclosed amount of money. He was reported to have quickly dropped the money on the floor when he discovered the Senator was aware of his act.

According to the police prosecutor, Abdullahi Adamu‎​, the crime was reported at Wuse Zone 3 Police Station by Abdullahi Kabiru of Prescort Village, Abuja on September 18, 2012. He said the accused had confessed to the crime which according to him is against the provisions of Section 287 of the Penal Code.

The presiding Magistrate, Ann Akobi sentenced the convict without an option of fine after listening to the First Information Report on the one-count charge to which the accused pleaded guilty at the Abuja Senior Magistrates’ Court.

May the police officer that arrested this guy see the wrath of God only if he has never received bribe in his life and may God deal with the senator according to the works of his hand. Heartless bastards. And u steal frm the nations purse, may God in heaven bring down his wrath on u all.

    the maximum money ‘picable’ from that pocket is 100k, and the powerful hand of d law of naija caught him, he should have gone for 100m or 100b, efcc would av been loking for him and begging him to appea in court, the case would have dragged from 2012 to2017, and by 2018 he would av sue for plea barganing and go home free! That is made in Nigeria Law.

Taking Care of Tomorrow’s Leaders Today – The itel, Lagos Food Bank Example

Published

on

Waking up to a special meal or choice gift is the best feeling ever. Hundreds of children in Mushin, mainland Lagos, had a filling taste of this feeling for the October 1 st celebrations. It’s an experience they will remember for a long time.

Being one of the most responsible corporate citizens around, celebrating Independence Day was always going to be on the radar for itel Mobile. To make this possible and memorable, the brand got to work in earnest. The focus of the work was picking the best way to commemorate the 60th independence anniversary of the most populous black nation on earth.

The efforts soon paid off through an impact-driven partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative. With the arrangement, both partners considered a couple of activities capable of affecting communities positively and bringing smiles to people’s faces in Lagos. At the end of the exercise, taking care of children, the leaders of tomorrow, in the commercial city secured the highest votes.

With the decision, itel Mobile set about making this happen. Not surprisingly, the decision was
influenced by giving children the means to excel and prepare them for leadership and nation-building, for them to enjoy better life. For the good of their immediate family, community and the Nigerian society.

Idiko, Mushin, a suburb of mainland Lagos, was chosen as the benefiting community. And the partners strategically reached out to the beneficiaries, children and families, with gifts of love, care, happiness and support made possible by the itel Love Always On CSR initiative.

Over 1,000 families benefited from the gesture as well as 600 children, and each one of them received food packages to celebrate Nigeria’s 60 th Independence Day commemoration.

Speaking on the event and itel’s Love Always On CSR Initiative, Oke Umurhohwo, itel’s Marketing Manager said, ‘We wanted to mark this year’s Independence Day celebrations differently, and that is why we did something so momentous for our children. Children are the backbone of any longstanding community, and as such, we are proud to be able to give back and support them on their journey as leaders of tomorrow and for a better life.’

To meet the demands of the memorable event, 30 volunteers joined the customer-centric brand and the Lagos-based NGO to share smiles, and to convey just how important it is to love and take care of today’s children who will ultimately become leaders of tomorrow.

With the thoughtful activity, there are insights for everyone, from the government to citizens, on partnerships that are capable of making life better for children. Indeed, itel Mobile and the Lagos Food Bank Initiative have offered a great template on bringing this to reality.
