A husband and wife, Segun Latoye and Toyin Samuel were on Friday arrested after being caught on camera three times in Oshodi fraudulently dispossessing passers-by of their belongings.

On their last footage, they dispossessed a young lady of her bag containing two mobile phones and unspecified amount of money.

They were captured by camera hurriedly boarding a bus after hypnotising their victim.

However, the lady regained her consciousness few minutes later and reported the incident to RRS officers who contacted the CCTV mobile Camera for footage of the area where the incident took place.

Their pictures were shown to selected people in Oshodi for them to bring to the attention of RRS officers whenever they notice the presence of the suspects in Oshodi.

The suspects, who claimed to be husband and wife, confessed after being shown their video.

Two other criminals – Jelili Ganiu (19) and Samson Owolabi (23) – were also arrested in Oshodi on Thursday and Friday. They were caught last week with the aid of Rapid Response Squad mobile Close Circuit Television (CCTV) in Oshodi.

Jelili and Owolabi were caught on footage of the camera stealing substance suspected to be mobile phone from a passer-by on Oshodi pedestrian bridge.
They were monitored through the camera thereafter exchanging the stolen item with another suspect currently at large before returning to the same location.

They were later trailed by RRS operatives attached to the vehicle and arrested at the foot of the pedestrian bridge.

Both men after interrogation confessed that they stole an Infinix Hot mobile phone from a passer-by on the bridge and that the third suspect who they exchanged the object with was the keeper of their stolen items.

Jelili added that the third suspect, OMo Nla, is the one who sell the phone’s whose money is later shared in the evening.

Jelili noted “Owolabi and I are conductors in Oshodi but when there was no work or we arrive late at the park to re-unite with our bosses, we steal phones, purse and other valuables from the users of the pedestrian bridge in Oshodi”.

The attached video shows Jelili and Owolabi stealing from a lady with backpack and thereafter exchanging the stolen item.

UN: How Boko Haram is funded- GreenParrot News

UN: How Boko Haram is funded- GreenParrot News

The predominance of the cash economy is a major factor fuelling the nefarious activities of the Boko Haram and other terrorist groups in the Lake Chad Basin region, a UN report has revealed.

This was contained in the 22nd Report of the Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team, pursuant to resolution 2368 (2017) concerning Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant – ISIL – (Da’esh), Al-Qaida and associated individuals and entities.

The report identified extortion, charitable donations, smuggling, remittances and kidnapping as parts of ways Boko Haram is funded.

The report was submitted to the Security Council Committee pursuant to resolutions 1267 (1999), 1989 (2011) and 2253 (2015) concerning ISIL (Da’esh), Al-Qaida and associated individuals, groups, undertakings and entities.

The Boko Haram insurgency in Northern Nigeria has caused over 100,000 deaths. The activities of the country’s security forces have largely limited the terrorists to three North-east states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe. Nigerian forces are also working with those of neighbouring countries, Chad and Niger, in a multi-national force to defeat the terrorists.

In its report, the UN said the number of doctrinally based non-governmental organisations sending funds to local terrorist groups was growing, and Member States were concerned that radicalisation was increasing the threat level in the Sahel.

The report said: “Meanwhile, Boko Haram (QDe.138) and the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) have had a similar impact in their areas of control, including the Lake Chad basin.

“The predominance in the region of the cash economy, without controls, is conducive to terrorist groups funded by extortion, charitable donations, smuggling, remittances and kidnapping.

“In Nigeria, 111 schoolgirls from the town of Dapchi were kidnapped on 18 February 2018 and released by ISWAP on 21 March 2018 in exchange for a large ransom payment,” the report stated.

The report was signed by Edmund Fitton-Brown, Coordinator, Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team, who said the report was “comprehensive and independent”, and Kairat Umarov, Chair, Security Council Committee.

The UN Security Council committee on al Qaeda sanctions blacklisted and imposed sanctions on the Islamist militant group Boko Haram in 2014 after the insurgents kidnapped more than 200 Chibok schoolgirls.

The designation, which came into effect after no objections were raised by the Security Council’s 15 members, subjected Boko Haram to UN sanctions, including an arms embargo, asset freeze and travel ban.

The UN Security Council had last week said it remained concerned at the security and humanitarian situation caused by the Boko Haram terrorists and other armed groups in Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad.

In a Presidential Statement, the 15-member body regretted that Central African countries were beset by ongoing terrorist activity, instability and the effects of climate change, and asked Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to review the work of the UN Regional Office for Central Africa (UNOCA), and recommend areas for improvement.

The presidential statement read: “The Security Council strongly condemns all terrorist attacks carried out in the region, including those perpetrated by Boko Haram and the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as Daesh).

“These attacks have caused large-scale and devastating losses, have had a devastating humanitarian impact including through the displacement of a large number of civilians in Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad, and represent a threat to the stability and peace of West and Central Africa.

“The Council notes with particular concern the continuing use by Boko Haram of women and girls as suicide bombers, which has created an atmosphere of suspicion towards them and made them targets of harassment and stigmatisation in affected communities, and of arbitrary arrests by security forces.

“The Council emphasises the need for affected States to counter-terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, including by addressing the conditions conducive to the spread of terrorism, in accordance with obligations under international law, in particular international human rights law, international refugee law and international humanitarian law”.

The Security Council welcomed the support provided by UNOCA and the UN Office for West Africa and Sahel (UNOWAS) for the development of a joint regional strategy to address the root causes of the Lake Chad Basin crisis through regular contact with regional leaders.

The Council encouraged partners to increase security assistance to Lake Chad Basin Commission countries, and humanitarian and development support across the region for those affected by Boko Haram activities.

“The Security Council remains deeply concerned at the grave security situation and related violations and abuses of human rights in parts of Central Africa, in particular the continuing terrorist activities of Boko Haram and other terrorist groups in the Lake Chad Basin,” it said.

“The Security Council expresses its ongoing concern at continued tensions linked to disputed electoral processes, social and economic difficulties, and conflicts between farmers and herders,” the statement added.

The 15-member Council noted that UNOCA’s priorities would include to work closely with UNOWAS to address trans-regional issues such as maritime security in the Gulf of Guinea, conflict between farmers and herders, and combating Boko Haram.

‘Kidnapper’ who took tramadol dies — after sleeping for nine days

The police say a suspected kidnapper who was arrested in a botched kidnap in Owo, Ondo state, has died following

“complications from a high intake of tramadol” .

According to NAN, Femi Joseph, spokesman of the state police command, disclosed this in Akure on Tuesday.

Joseph said the suspect died at Owo General Hospital where medical personnel had battled to revive him.

The suspect was said to have been unconscious since his arrest on August 5.

“The suspect died nine days after we arrested him; we thought he would be revived so that he could help us in our investigation,” he said.

“Unfortunately, he died yesterday (Monday). This could be connected with the high intake of tramadol which he took.

“We are using this opportunity to further educate the public, especially parents, to monitor their wards and the kind of company they keep.”

The suspect and his gang had allegedly invaded Chinery Pharmacy in Owo with the intention of kidnapping the pharmacist.

The pharmacist, on sighting them with arms, was said to have escaped through an exit door at the back of the chemist.

The suspects reportedly snatched a Bajaj motorcycle from one Daodu Wale who came to the chemist to buy drugs.

While one of the suspects fell and was arrested, two accomplices escaped on the motorcycle.

The force said one cut-to-size locally made gun and 400mg of tramadol were recovered from the suspect.
