Anambra State billionaire and owner of Firman Generators Chief Ignatius Odunukwe who went missing since first week of December has been found dead.
The billionaire was killed, cut into pieces and his body packed into a ”Ghana Must Go” bag which his murderers took to the expressway and dumped inside a forest.
Some criminals who pretended to be land buyers called him on phone because they heard he had a property for sale.
They agreed on a price and the agreements for the purchase was drafted by his lawyer.
Both parties agreed to meet on an agreed date for the exchange and thats when the whole drama started.
IG Odunukwe’s lawyers suggested going with him for the signing but he declined and told him he needs to see someone at Ikoyi club and that was the last time they saw him.
When the billionaire didn’t come back home, his family reported the incident to the police and they started investigations.
They eventaully arrested one of the men. On searching his house, they saw the original land documents already signed.
The man claimed he already finalized the deal and paid the billionaire but when the police asked him to provide the bank account where he paid, he claimed that he paid with gold.
That was when the police knew he was lieing. He was tortured and remanded in prison custody.
Finally, few days later, there was a break through in the case and the police arrested two more men.
They were tortured and they confessed that the picked up the billionaire and forced him to sign the documents. They killed him, cut his body into pieces and packed the parts into a Ghana Must Go bag and dumped it inside a forest in Badagry expressway.
On January 16th 2020, the police took the man’s family and the criminals to the forest where they retrieved the bag.
You can see when the police took the criminals and IG Odunukwe’s family to Badagry to recover the Ghana Must Go bag HERE.
It’s very important to always tell your family and close friends where your going to incase something happens.
If not that he told his lawyers he was going for that meeting at the hotel, they wouldn’t have known where to start looking for him.
Also, if your selling something, be very careful of every potential buyer because some of them might be criminals.
The bag they’re holding contained the remains of the businessman.
Agencies Illegally Took N5.8trn From FG Account – Report
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) and the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), have made illegal deductions from the Federation Account estimated at N5.786 trillion between 2014 and 2017, said an audit report of the Auditor General of the Federation.
This was disclosed in Abuja during the presentation of the 2014-2017 Federal Audit Report by the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ). The report was supported by the European Union and the British Council.
The report presented by the Programme Officer of CSJ, Fidelis Onyejegbu, shows NNPC led the unauthorised deductions with N4.5 trillion; FIRS followed with N951 billion and DPR had N334bn.
It also said some key Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs) failed to remit N141.3bn of internally generated revenues and unspent funds into the Consolidated Revenue Fund (CRF) between 2014 and 2017.
Lead Director of CSJ, Eze Onyekpere, said the objective of the presentation was to improve federal revenue audit practice by putting the issues in the front burner of public discourse.
He emphasised the need for the country to amend its financial regulations and audit laws for better fiscal management in the best interest of the nation.
However, the NNPC and the DPR have denied the claim of illegally deducting N4.5trn and N334bn respectively.
The agencies said they couldn’t have deducted from the account since they run cashless accounts.
The DPR spokesman, Paul Osu, said the audit report was old and the agency had since debunked the claims made in it. “It was not possible to illegally deduct from Federation Account when the cashless policy is in place.”
NNPC spokesman, Kennie Obateru, also said NNPC didn’t deduct from the Federation Account.
The Director, Communications at FIRS, Mal. Abdullahi Ismaila said he was not aware of such deductions but promised to verify the true position of the agency and revert.
PETROAN Calls for Truce on Proposed NLC Strike over Petrol Price Hike
President Petroleum Products Retail Outlets Owners Association of Nigeria (PETROAN), Dr Billy Gillis-Harry has called on the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress to consider dialogue as against the nationwide strike action billed from Monday, September 28, 2020
PETROAN is the second organized section in the oil and gas sector to take a position considered as capable of pulling the artery off the proposed strike action by the NLC and TUC. Last Tuesday, the Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) surprisingly suspended the two-day warning strike which it commenced on Tuesday.
Although the protest of NARTO, an umbrella organisation of all commercial vehicles owners in Nigeria engaged in the haulage of petroleum products, general cargoes, and movement of goods and passengers nationwide, was unrelated to hike in petrol price hike, observers said the suspension of their strike, after a brief meeting with officials of government, was in order to ensure that their members will not participate in the NLC proposed strike.
Dr Harry said a dialogue Hon minister of state for.petroleum,Hon minister of Labour and organized labour between Saturday and Sunday, which he believes, the regulatory organs of government will be open to, will achieve a sustainable truce that will be in the interest of the common Nigerians in the street, than a mass action that will be largely destructive and worsen the hardship already inflicted by the Covid19 pandemic on Nigeria.
PETROAN is the umbrella body of over 400,000 members nationwide, who are petrol station owners and marketers. “Our members occupy the last stratum in the petrol distribution value chain. We have direct contact and final interaction with users of petroleum products. We have inflammable assets that are freely accessible to a possibly rampaging group. So, we are of the opinion that dialogue will achieve middle ground that will be favourable to the masses than a strike action,” the PATROAN President stated.
According to him, while PATROAN does not support the hike in petroleum pump price, and other tariffs, it believes that a strike action will only end up worsening things for Nigerians. “We want the Nigerian Labour Congress, the Trade Union Congress, NUPENG and all sister unions and associations to consider this dialogue option in the interest of the ordinary Nigerians. Let us exhaust all possible avenues of peaceful solution. We believe the authorities will definitely shift,” the PETROAN boss said
The NLC’s Central Working Committee handed down a two-week ultimatum to the FG to reverse the price hike or face industrial action after the National Executive Council meeting on Tuesday in Abuja. The federal government through the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency, PPPRA, on July 1, raised the pump price of petrol to between N140.80 and N143.80 in July, one of the highest price movements in the last few months.
