Contrary to the expectation of many that former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, would be in court today after reporting to the district police station on charges of bribery and corruption in the United Kingdom, she did not show up.

In fact, court officials said the matter was not listed for consideration today.

UK-based Nigerian journalist, Kayode Ogundamisi, who, along with other journalists kept watch outside the Charing Cross Police Station and Court 10, in anticipation of the ex-minister’s arrival, reported that “officials at West Minster Magistrate Court said they have not seen former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke.”

“Only three cases listed for Court 10 at the Westminster Magistrate Court,” he stated on his Twitter handle.

“Diezani Alison-Madueke is not listed. Former Nigerian Oil Minister Alison-Madueke was never brought to Westminster Magistrate Court.

“There was an application made involving Diezani Alison-Madueke in Westminster Magistrate Court but she was not here.

“I got a final confirmation from the Westminster Magistrate Court 10. Court Clark just confirmed Alison-Madueke was not in court.”

It was still uncertain, at the time of filing this report, how the matter would proceed.

Alison-Madueke was arrested on Friday, October 2, 2015 in London on allegations of bribery and money laundering. She was granted bail and is expected to face prosecution soon at the hands of UK authorities

Self-acclaimed Port Harcourt First Son, Duncan Mighty is currently trending on social media for the wrong reasons.

A water tank driver, Okabam John has accused singer, Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.

It was gathered that the incident reportedly happened on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at about 9:40am when the driver was on duty.

Narrating his ordeal to some Civil Rights Activists on Tuesday November 24, after he was allegedly discharged from the hospital, John, a native of Elele Town in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state and an employee of Julius Berger Nigeria Limited, claimed that the musician struck him on the head with a traditional staff made of elephant tusk.

According to the driver, while on duty a private car was parked close to his water filling spot. He tried notifying the driver who refused to wind down. He reportedly bent his head to talk to the driver only to discover it was Duncan Mighty.

John said that before he could speak, the singer allegedly struck his head using a traditional staff. He said the second strike was blocked with his hand. He claimed that he could not see when the singer drove off as his eyes were covered with blood.

Confirming the incident on Tuesday, one Ndubueze Obodowhuo, accused Duncan Mighty of using his VIP status to intimidate his people. He also shared a ‘medical report’ stating that John was treated for “shoulder dislocation and scalp laceration.”

Mr John is now calling on his employer, the management of Julius Berger, Security Agencies and Human Rights Organisations to help him get justice. His post below:

“This is Mr. OKABAM JOHN a native of Elele town in Ikwerre LGA of Rivers State, he’s currently employed by JULIUS BERGER NIG.PLC in Port Harcourt and his service engagement is within Judges quarters elelenwo-street, GRA Port Harcourt.

“According to Mr. OKABAM JOHN a Water-tank driver with Julius Berger, Tanker number – B8751, On Saturday 21st of November 2020 at about 9:40am while he was on duty. A private car was parked close to his water filling spot, he tried notifying the driver who refused to wine down, he bent his head to talk with the driver surprisingly, it was Duncan mighty.

“Before he could explain, his head was struck by Duncan mighty using a traditional staff(Elephant tusk), the second strike was blocked with his hand. He(Okabam John) didn’t see how the artist drove off because, blood covered his eyes at that moment.

“Mr. Okabam John narrated this incident after being discharged from the hospital. Duncan doesn’t show up when he’s publicly needed, rather he uses his VIP influence to undo his people. Celebrities should be celebrated by their positivity, their influence shouldn’t pose danger to the society rather it should serve as liberation to the people.

“Mr. OKABAM JOHN is calling on the management of Julius Berger, Security Agents and Human Rights Organisations for justice to be done in his case, to avoid a re-occurance.”
