Mitsubishi has just issued 3 sets of recalls affecting a total of 368,000 vehicles as follows:

1. Just a few days ago, Mitsubishi issued a recall of 140,000 of its vehicles due to the automatic tensioner flange on the drive belt, which may crack and make the vehicle shutdown. The following models were affected in that recall: 2009-2012 Lancer, 2010-2012 Lancer Sportback, 2008-2012 Outlander, and 2011-12 Outlander Sport models.

2. The recall didn’t end with the first one as they have just issued another one which affects 171,000 units of Mitsubishi vehicles. It affects some 2014-2016 Outlander and 2013-2016 Outlander Sport SUVs. The problem is the actuator shaft for the parking brake, which could corrode and seize due to water that may leak from the rear brake calipers. This problem could also make the affected vehicles roll away when parked.

3. Thirdly, 56,641 vehicles are being recalled due to the sunroof glass that may fall off on motion constituting a major hazard. The affected models are 2007-2010 Outlander, 2008-2010 Lancer, 2009-2010 Lancer Evolution, and 2010 Lancer Sportback models.

The auto manufacturer has called on the users of the affected vehicles to come have the affected components replaced. We hope the Mitsubishi dealerships in Nigeria will do something about this so we don’t have cars rolling away and sunroofs flying off on Nigerian roads.

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.”
