Film Summary

A child's angelic face conceals a budding sociopath in the audacious, senses-shattering feature debut from actor Brady Corbet. A powerhouse international cast led by Robert Pattinson and Bérénice Bejo (The Artist) headlines this dark domestic nightmare. Set amidst the turmoil of World War I and its aftermath, it follows the young son of an American diplomat living in France as he learns to manipulate the adults around him—a monstrous coming of age that ominously parallels the rising tide of Fascism in Europe. A stylistically fearless tour-de-force, The Childhood of a Leader reaches fever-pitch delirium thanks to ravishing cinematography and a thunderous score by legendary, boundary-pushing musician Scott Walker.

My People:

Why was it SO NECESSARY to purchase Fayose's Ekiti governorship in 2014  with so much cash?  In my little state of Ekiti, where our monthly allocation hardly broke the N2 billion barrier?  How did banks allow so much cash to be moved into and out of its vaults - and does cash continue to be moved so rapaciously even as we type?

Clearly the "stomach infrastructure" - or lack thereof - that lost Fayemi his governorship and won Fayose his was nothing more than transactional RAW cash from our commonwealth being dispersed around to security forces, election officers and thugs - with the balance left in Fayose's "fixed deposit" accounts and real estate.

Funny - Fayose continues to deny link with Obanikoro, and Obanikoro denies link with Dasuki - all with such overwhelming evidence with dates, places, flight numbers, number of bags and cash per bag!

When we add all the Money-Gates to the Budget-Padding-Gate, we really see how our country got to the sorry pass that we are in.  These disclosures - and systemic effort to ensure that they NEVER occur again - are the necessary ground-clearing - before all this talk about re-structuring.

Re-structuring - I support - but there MUST be serious ground-clearing first.

And there you have it.

N1.2b packed in 65 bags for Obanikoro in dawn airport operation – Witness


by Yusuf Alli, July 31, 2016

• How Fayose took over cash meant for six beneficiaries

Imagine what effort goes into loading 65 bags containing N1.2billion raw cash into a plane.

Revelations coming from a witness in the alleged diversion of that sum by former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, to Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State for the prosecution of the 2014 governor election in the state, said it took ten hours, and two aircraft over three flights.

Head of Cash-In-Trust Service of Diamond Bank, Damola Otuyalo, said in a statement of oath to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission ( EFCC) that the money was first taken to the Ikeja Airport at dawn in 65 bags before being  dispatched to Ekiti State via the Akure airport.

It was also gathered that the cash, which was originally released for   six beneficiaries – Santuraki Bello (N200m); Yusuf Bulama (N120m); Chimenum Njoku (N250m); Josiah Moses (N280m); Abubakar Sadiq Zanna (N200m); and Franklin Tolani (N150m)- was  diverted to Fayose by Obanikoro under the pretence  that the six persons could not be located.

Otuyalo, in his oath, said:"On the N1.2billion, my director, Mr. Premier Oiwoh informed me about the payment on the 10th of June 2014. Cash was gathered together on the 17th of June and was taken to the location where I was told to take it to.

"The location was the private wing of the Lagos Airport and date was on the 17th of June 2014.

"We got to the private wing before 7am in the morning and left the airport at 4pm in the afternoon. The cash was bagged in cash bags totaling about 65 and everything was offloaded from the bullion van.

"What I mean by cash was gathered was that as part of routine of the unit, we normally evacuate branches that have excess cash and either move it to branches with low cash or move it to CBN or swap with other banks.

"The instruction, dated 16th of June 2014 was given to me where six beneficiaries were to be paid.

"The names of the beneficiaries were Santuraki Bello (N200m); Yusuf Bulama (N120m); Chimenum Njoku (N250m); Josiah Moses (N280m); Abubakar Sadiq Zanna (N200m); and Franklin Tolani (N150m).

"The above-named beneficiaries were not available to be paid as I did not see them. I was further directed by Mr. Premier Oiwoh to move the money to the airport where I will be given further instruction on who to pay.

"The cash was moved to the airport through the Cash-In-Transit vendor, Benters Warehouse Limited (BWL). I contacted the vendor, who made the bullion vehicle available for the movement.

"I personally supervised the loading of the money into the bullion van and escorted the money to the airport. I was in my vehicle while the bullion van was also escorted by the police.

"As at the time I left the banking premises, I did not sight the beneficiaries."

Otuyalo confirmed an earlier report by The Nation that they were disallowed access to the security gate at the reserved wing at the airport.

He, however, said Gbolahan Obanikoro, son of the ex-Minister, cleared them at the airport gate.

The banker added:"When we got to the gate, we were not allowed in as we did not have any pass. However, Gbolahan Obanikoro came, he cleared us and we moved in.

"I identified Gbolahan Obanikoro while my boss, Premier Oiwoh, called me on the phone that Gbolahan was around. He spoke to Gbolahan through my phone and the phone was also handed back to me where it was confirmed that that was the beneficiary to pay the money to.

"Besides this, politicians are really not hidden from the public. So, I was also able to recognise him apart from my boss's confirmation.

"When we eventually gained entrance into the private wing, Mr. Musiliu Obanikoro came in with two armed policemen and a few friends and cash was offloaded into the first aircraft which flew him out of the airport.

"The aircraft later came back and the second batch of money was also offloaded into the aircraft from the bullion van.

"As the second aircraft could not also contain the remaining amount due to the size of the aircraft and weight it can carry.

"I recall that another aircraft was also used to move the final batch of the money from the bullion van.

"The second and third movements were supervised by Gbolahan Obanikoro as his father had left with the first aircraft.

"I got back to my boss, Premier Oiwoh, that the assignment was concluded and he said okay."

How Agbele Bought N1.3bn Houses For Gov. Fayose – EFCC


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission says it has made a breakthrough in the alleged corruption case against Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State and his associate, Mr. Abiodun Agbele.  

Agbele, who is currently in EFCC custody, was said to have received N1.219bn from a former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, on behalf of Fayose during the build-up to the Ekiti governorship election in June 2014.

However, EFCC detectives alleged that Fayose used a large portion of the N1.219bn along with some money from the Ekiti State coffers to buy houses in Lagos and Abuja, which have since been seized by the anti-graft agency.

An investigator told our correspondent that Fayose used Agbele to buy the houses in a way that would make the source of the money look legitimate.

He explained that the two houses in Abuja were bought with bank loans from Skye Bank and Zenith Bank on the surface. However, the stolen money was used in offsetting the bank loans.

The detective said, "From the Dasuki funds, they had about N300m stashed in one account. However, when they were going to buy the N270m property located on Yedseram Street, they did not use the N300m from the stolen funds. Rather, they obtained a loan of N120m in the name of Spotless Hotel from Zenith Bank to deposit for the house.

"They then took about N150m out of the Dasuki money to pay the balance on the house and then used the same Dasuki funds to offset the loan. They went through all this stress to cover their tracks and make it look as if it was a bank loan they used in buying the property.

"Why did they take a loan that would be gathering interest when they had more than enough money to buy the house?"

The investigator said when it was time to buy the four duplexes in Lagos, Fayose and Agbele allegedly overpaid the seller of the houses and then told the seller to use the balance which was N200m, to pay for another house in Abuja.

The source said, "The worth of the four duplexes in Lagos is N1.1bn, which was sold by Still Earth Nigeria Ltd. However, Fayose and Agbele paid Still Earth N1.3bn in cash and then told the company to transfer the balance of N200m to Skye Bank. It was that N200m that was used in purchasing the building at 44 Osun River Crescent, Abuja. This was done so that no one would be able to trace the fund to them."

Meanwhile, the anti-graft agency has also traced about N60m to an account belonging to Agbele.

The account titled, BYKD Consultant Limited, which is domiciled in Diamond Bank, received some funds from Ekiti  State local governments under the heading, Millennium Development Goals.

A copy of the statement of account sighted by our correspondent showed that on February 18, 2015, about N18, 159, 050 was paid into the account. On the same day, about N15, 319, 650 was paid into the same account while about N11, 238, 500 was deposited into the account on the same day among other transactions.

The transaction history showed that Agbele paid about N40m and N15m into the account of Affordable Motors.

"This is a new discovery and we want to know why such funds would be released by local governments because so far there is no evidence of any contract between the local government and Agbele," the source said.

My People:

A full accounting of ownership, source of funds (cash, mortgage or inheritance), dates, occupancy and value of ALL lands and buildings - in preparation for the imposition of fair property taxes that should revert to local governments treasuries - is in order.   This will reduce the serious use of property for money laundering in Nigeria, and provide needed funds to Local Governments to discharge their duties.

'How Fayose's Associate Wired Cash Into Accounts'

Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose's  associate Abiodun Agbele wired N1.35billion into three accounts to pay for four of the five duplexes the governor allegedly bought in Lagos; it was learnt yesterday. The fifth duplex, which cost about N200million, is in Abuja. The laundering of the cash was staggered to, detectives believe,  cover up the details from the prying eyes of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

BY YUSUF ALLI, ABUJAJUL 08, 2016



Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose's  associate Abiodun Agbele wired N1.35billion into three accounts to pay for four of the five duplexes the governor allegedly bought in Lagos; it was learnt yesterday.

The fifth duplex, which cost about N200million, is in Abuja.

The laundering of the cash was staggered to, detectives believe,  cover up the details from the prying eyes of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The EFCC uncovered the lodgments in these accounts: FCMB belonging to Siqnachor (0519693019), First Bank of Nigeria (1000070240) and Zenith Bank (1014016919) of Still Earth Limited.

But the owner of Still Earth Limited, Oyindamola Adeyemi, has told the EFCC that her company neither secured a contract from Fayose, nor offered him a kickback.

She said the governor was yet to pay the agency fees to Still Earth on the four duplexes he acquired at Tiamiyu Savage Street on Victoria Island.

The facts on how Fayose, through his detained associate Agbele, paid for the duplexes are contained in some EFCC documents.

A top source said: "The payments were effected through De-Privateer Limited, which is owned by Agbele. The governor and his associate knew that they were involved in money laundering, and they cleverly opted to stagger the funds.

"We have retrieved the list of lodgements made by De-Privateer into three accounts, including FCMB belonging to Siqnachor (0519693019), First Bank of Nigeria (1000070240) and Zenith Bank (1014016919) of Still Earth Limited.

The breakdown of some of the remittances is as follows: First Bank—N40m (29/1/15); N39.5m (30/1/15); N132.5 (30/1/ 15); N3.2m (4/2/15); N980, 000(4/2/15); N200m (17/2/15); N47m (13/2/15); N50m (13/2/15).

The lodgments in an account in Zenith Bank (1014016919) include N42.5m (9/4/15); N25m (23/4/15); and N229m (6/3/15).

Agbele, also through De-Privateer, paid N200million into the account of Siqnachor Integrated Limited in FCMB (0519693019) on March 9, 2015.

The EFCC source added: "You can see what Fayose did with state funds within the first six months in office. This is just a segment of our ongoing investigation of the governor.

"We are yet to shift focus to other areas where state funds were diverted into personal use or associates' accounts."

Responding to a question, the source said: "We are going ahead with Friday's  interaction with three more people on the five properties bought by the governor."

Still Earth boss Adeyemi has said that she neither executed any contract or gave Fayose kickback.

Adeyemi, who made the clarifications against the backdrop of the affidavit of the EFCC at the Federal High Court, said her company rejected a N5billion project from Ekiti State Government in place of the agency fees on the four duplexes in Lagos.

Adeyemi said: "I didn't do any contract, and I never gave any kickback to the governor. Fayose offered us a N5billion contract, but we were circumspect, and we rejected it.

"In fact, at the time Fayose came up with the contract idea, our company's relationship with him had gone sour.

"Still Earth is a construction and real estate firm. They bought four chalets from us through De-Privateer Limited. It was De-Privateer that paid us. So, if anybody or company offered a kickback to the governor, it must be De-Privateer.

"I felt sad that Still Earth has been linked to the kickback when we didn't do any project in Ekiti State.

"It may interest you to know that Still Earth is a growing concern with over N2.5bn taxable turnover, managed by a very dedicated managing director whose intimidating resume command an ovation of credit."

She went on to talk about the company's remarkable projects all over the country in construction, real estate, and project financing.  "Still Earth has constructed over 45 kilometer road around the country, several building projects and has financed laudable projects that impact the economy of our great nation," She said, adding:

"All these efforts put together have always been championed by a woman known for her uprightness in her business and personal lifestyle.  This is a woman who believes in achieving the result through struggles and hard work."

Can all this information - names, dates, monies, bank accounts, etc -  be correct?  Maybe the correct question is:  can all of them be wrong?

Another question:  if a person is immune from being sued/arraigned, can he sue/have someone arraigned in court?

Final question:  if a person is immune, are his money and his personal aides immune too?

Inquiring minds want to know......

In my court o, Fayose certainly has a fat case to answer.  In fact, I would have to recuse myself! :-)

And there you have it.

SAHARA REPORTER

BY SAHARAREPORTERS, NEW YORKJUL 05, 2016

EFCC Counter-Affidavit Shows How Obanikoro Transferred NSA Billions To Fayose And How The Governor Collects Kickbacks, Loots Ekiti

SaharaReporters has obtained a damning copy of the counter-affidavit filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) before Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court in Ado-Ekiti in connection with the freezing of his account with Zenith Bank.

Last week, the judge refused to grant an order to unfreeze the account.  Instead, he summoned the commission and Zenith Bank, which holds the account, to appear before him on July 4 to explain why the governor's account of the Governor was frozen.

The EFCC counter-affidavit submitted to the court forced Gov. Fayose's lawyers to ask for a quick adjournment in the case, and the judge adjourned the case until September 30.

EFCC lawyer Rotimi Oyedepo had informed the court that his clients had filed a counter affidavit, with nine exhibits. Our sources say that when Mike Ozekhome, who is the governor's lawyer, saw the contents of the affidavit, he was left in shock.

The affidavit details how former Minister of State for Defence Musiliu Obanikoro, who is currently hiding in Atlanta, USA, conspired with the currently-detained former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki, to steal and divert the sum of N4.7billion of public funds to fund the rigging of Governor Fayose's election in 2014.  Obanikoro's son, Jide, used his company, Sylvan McNamara Ltd to facilitate the stealing.

Among others, the counter-affidavit also details the movement of cash through Akure airport, including the registration number of the private jet used in the illegal transaction.

The document also exposes how, in addition to fraudulently retaining the sum of N1.2 billion stolen from the treasury of the Federal Government through the office of the NSA, Gov. Fayose has since assuming office in 2014 been stealing state funds and collecting kickbacks from contractors doing business with his government, which he invests in buying property in Lagos and Abuja.

The EFCC named some of the companies from which he has received such gratifications as Samchese Nigeria Limited, Tender Branch Concept Nig. Ltd, Hoff Concept Ltd, Calibre Consulting Ltd, Still Earth Ltd and Signachorr Nigeria Ltd.

Fayose, it further deposed, instructed Still Earth Ltd and Signachoor Nigeria Ltd to use the funds to acquire properties for him, which they did in the name of J.J. TECHNICAL SERVICES LTD, a company which belongs to the governor and his wife.

In addition, Fayose also used the name of one Mrs. Moji Ladeji, his sister, to acquire a property at No 44 Osun Crescent in Maitama, Abuja, from the proceeds of the alleged offences of receiving gratification and kickbacks.

Our correspondent said that outside the courtroom today, a number of protesters waved placards in support of the EFCC action against Governor Fayose.

My People:

We have now added a multi-billionaire "house-maid" to our national stable of corruption....how do these people think of this kind of crookery?

And with Fayose, following the money in the bank is all that is necessary to connect the dots......

I have always been of the strong opinion that many (most?) of our banks in Nigeria are ESSENTIALLY criminal enterprises - for where is the principle of KYC - Know Your Customer?  How can a common "housemaid" have as much as N2.5 - N5.6 billion in her account, and you don't REALLY know, and/or ask questions - unless of course you don't really wish to know, because it is easy money ready to be lent out in usurious interest rate?  Suppose these are armed robbery (rather than pen robbery) proceeds?  Or terrorism?

Inquiring minds want to know.....

EFCC traces N2.5b to ex-female minister's housemaid's account

Posted By: Yusuf Allion: July 03, 2016

•Secures court order to detain Fayose's associate

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has laid its hands on a bank account with over N2.5billion opened in the name of a former female minister's housemaid.

Investigators of the anti-graft agency believe the account was opened by the former influential minister in the name of the housemaid as part of the effort to cover her track.

However, preliminary investigation has shown that the former minister   is the sole signatory to the account, The Nation gathered authoritatively yesterday.

A highly placed EFCC source said yesterday that she would be brought to justice.

"Our findings indicated that the ex-female minister opened an account in the name of her housemaid and with her photograph. But the signature in the account is that of the ex-minister," the source said.

"At the time we made the discovery, over N2.5billion was in the account. But the volume of transactions in the account has been huge.

"We are suspecting that the ex-minister did not put the housemaid in the picture of what she wanted to do with her passport photograph.

"We have established that the ex-minister has been drawing funds from the said account. We have retrieved records of all transactions by the ex-Minister. We will soon bring her to justice no matter how long it takes to follow due process."

The EFCC, it was also gathered, has secured a court order to detain Abiodun Agbele (Alias Abbey), an associate of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State.

Agbele was arrested during the week in respect of ongoing investigation into how about N4.745billion of the $2. 1billion arms cash was diverted to a former Minister of Defence, Mr. Musiliu Obanikoro and Governor Fayose.

The cash was allegedly sourced from the SAS Imprest Account of the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) under ex-NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki prior to the conduct of  the  June 21,2014 Ekiti Governorship poll.

About N1.219billion was allegedly disbursed to Fayose through Abiodun Agbele and De Privateer Limited which is owned by the associate.

The ONSA allegedly wired the N4.745billion via Sylvan Mcnamara Limited, a phony company allegedly run by the Obanikoros.

Said a source, "We have obtained a remand warrant from the court to detain Agbele; who was central to the collection and sharing of the N1.219billion into the accounts of Fayose and other beneficiaries.

"His arrest has enabled us to get to the root of how the funds came about and the disbursement formula.

"When presented with records of transactions and accruing tellers, the suspect admitted carrying out the transactions. He is helping our investigation and we will soon reveal the details to the public."

Before Agele's arrest, investigation had uncovered that:

"The N1, 219, 490,000 was not deposited in any account but it was kept in a vault in the bank. It took the bank officials about 10 days to count. The bankers refused to make entry until it was counted,

"Shortly after confirming the figure, Abiodun Agbele was used to coordinate the disbursement of the funds. On June 26, 2014, the wanted associate (Abiodun Agbele) paid N137million into Ayodele Fayose's account 10003126654 with Zenith Bank through Teller-0556814. Fayose's BVN on the teller is 22338867502. On August 22, 2014, he paid N50million into the same account. By the records from the bank, Abiodun Agbele paid another N118, 760,000 into Fayose's account on 27/8/14.

"Based on the transfers, Fayose moved N300million to a Fixed Deposit Account No 9013074033 with Zenith Bank at 15, Olusola Abiona Street, Olorunda Estate, Alapere Ketu. He has the same BVN-22338867502.

"After that, Abiodun deposited another N100million from the N1, 219, 490,000 into Spotless Hotel Account run by Fayose and his wife, Helen Olayemi Fayose with Account No. 1010170969, Fayose's BVN is 223338867502 and his wife's BVN in the account is 22298990256.

"The governor and his wife are the two directors and signatories of Spotless Hotel account."

In the course of the investigation, the EFCC team dug up how De Privateer Limited (a company owned by Abiodun Agbele) with Account No. 1013835889 received the sum of N219, 490,000 on June 18, 2014.

"On June 19, 2014, the same account received N300million and another N200million on June 23, 2014. The BVN of the account is 22235692890."

SAHARA REPORTERS

BY SAHARAREPORTERS, NEW YORKJUL 03, 2016


EFCC Finds N2.5B In Former Aviation Minister Stella Oduah's Housemaid's Account

Agents of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have discovered the sum of N2.5 billion in a bank account opened in the name of a housemaid to former Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah, who is now a senator representing Anambra State in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Two senior EFCC sources told our correspondent that the bank account and its huge deposits had been opened and operated without the knowledge of the former minister's housemaid. "Senator Oduah apparently opened the account with her housemaid's name, image, and details without the housemaid knowing about it," said one EFCC agent familiar with the scandal. 

Another EFCC source told SaharaReporters that Ms. Oduah had been going around to some top officials of the Muhammadu Buhari administration seeking their help to scuttle her impending trial. Last week, she asked for a meeting with EFCC chairman Ibrahim Magu, claiming she wanted to meet in her official capacity as a senator. 

The two EFCC sources who briefed our correspondent on the "housemaid" account disclosed that Ms. Oduah was the sole signatory to the account, adding that they were still connecting the dots to uncover how the ex-Aviation Minister managed to pull off such a money laundering operation. 

"As of last week, the account was still active and contained over N2.5 billion," said one EFCC source. He added that he could not ascertain whether the EFCC chairman, who is currently traveling in Saudi Arabia for lesser hajj, had ordered the freezing of the account.

One of our EFCC sources revealed that the discovery of the "maid" account meant that the former minister must have stolen as much as N5.6 billion so far from the Aviation Ministry's funds during her ministerial term.

SaharaReporters had revealed in earlier reports that EFCC investigators had so far determined that Ms. Oduah split N3.6 billion that she acquired illegally among eight companies. 

In August 2015, Ms. Oduah filed an application at a Federal High Court to stop the EFCC from investigating allegations that she bought two ostensibly bulletproof BMW cars at $1.6 million, or $800,000 apiece. A controversial judge, Justice Mohammed Yunusa, initially granted the order sought by Senator Oduah. However, in February 2016, after Justice Yunusa was transferred out of Lagos, another federal high court judge vacated the order, permitting the EFCC to carry on with its investigation. 

SaharaReporters had broken the report about the BMW scam during Ms. Oduah's ministerial tenure. Several BMW dealers in Europe and North America told our reporters that what the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) paid for the two BMW cars far exceeded the price ranges for such bulletproof automobiles. 

Ms. Oduah is a close ally of embattled Senate President Bukola Saraki, who is the defendant in two criminal trials in Abuja pertaining to forgery and false declaration of assets.
