SON raids Anambra factories, arrests Chinese over fake products




The Standards Organisation of Nigeria on Wednesday raided some companies in Onitsha and its environs, arresting some persons suspected to be producing fake products.

At Bendusco International Agency Limited and DSK Golding City Investment Limited in Awada, Obosi, near Onitsha, a Chinese, Ning Tiandong, suspected to be an accomplice working for the two companies was arrested

One of the directors of the company, Benjamin Nwizu, was also arrested.

SON evacuated the suspected fake products of the companies in three trucks.

Some of the products allegedly adulterated by the companies were toothbrushes and shaving sticks.

Led by its director of operations, Mr. Felix Nyado, SON raided one other factory at 33 area of Onitsha were six persons were arrested.

Speaking to journalists, Nwizu denied that his company was producing substandard products.

He said his company had dragged SON before a Federal High Court in Awka where the court ordered the parties in the suit to maintain the status quo.

Nwizu said his company had an order from the National Assembly restricting SON from disturbing its business.

Addressing journalists after the raid, Nyado described Nwizu as a serial liar.

He said that Nwizu’s claims were false and denied that SON was in court with Nwizu’s company.

“He is a serial liar. We are not in court with him and I don’t think any court will restrict a regulatory body from performing its functions.

“We are an Act of the parliament; the National Assembly cannot stop us from doing our work.

“This company is producing substandard products and we say they cannot do that because the health of the people is being endangered.

“Take for instance, the rule says you must produce toothpaste with virgin raw materials, but this man and his company are producing such products with recycled materials. We say no to that and he is talking about a court order and an authority from the National Assembly.

“Did the court and the National Assembly give him the authority to fake and produce substandard products?”

He said the Chinese and Nwizu would be handed over to the police.

Water tank driver accuses Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Rivers




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.”
