The police in Lagos State have arrested a woman, Jennifer Onyebuchi, for allegedly stealing a nine-month-old baby in the Ajegunle area of the state, and fleeing with him to Anambra State.
PUNCH Metro learnt that Onyebuchi, who allegedly took the baby to Okija, Anambra State, was arrested on September 30 by operatives from the Lagos command, while the baby was also rescued.
Onyebuchi, who also hails from Anambra, had befriended the baby’s mother, Aina Adetola, for about two weeks before she reportedly carried out the act.
According to a resident of Orodu Street, where the suspect and the victim’s mother were shop owners, Onyebuchi allegedly lied that she was going to buy an item for the baby when she fled with
The resident, who identified himself only as Uche, said:
“It was on Saturday, September 26. We were all shocked that Jennifer (Onyebuchi) escaped with the nine-month-old baby. She had met the victim’s mother for just two weeks before she carried out the act.
“They were both shop owners in the area. On that day, Jennifer took the baby from his mother when he was crying and said she was going to buy him a bottle of soft drink from a nearby shop.
“When the mother waited for them to return, but did not see them, she raised the alarm. The matter was thereafter reported at the Ajegunle Police Division. Nobody suspected that Jennifer had a devilish motive. It turned out that the woman took the baby to a bus station and travelled on the same day to Okija, Anambra State.”
Police operatives from Lagos, after being briefed on the incident, went on the trail of the suspect.
It was gathered that after four days of hiding, Onyebuchi was arrested in Okija, while the baby was also rescued by the police.
The baby’s mother, Adetola, told Punch that her husband sent her packing from their house, when he discovered that she had given their baby in error to a stranger.
“I could not eat for four days. I thought I was going to run mad. I wanted to kill myself, but people continued to calm me down. My husband was so angry that he sent me out of his apartment, and I had to be sleeping in my friend’s house. He said if I did not bring the baby back, I should not return to his apartment. I wept throughout that period.
I first met Jennifer (Onyebuchi) at a filling station around Boundary bus stop in Ajegunle. She would always assist me when I wanted to buy petrol. She had a shop in the area too. On that Saturday, she had come to my shop when my baby was crying. She carried him and said she was going to buy a drink for him.
“That was my mistake. After hours of waiting for them, I rushed to Akinbo Street at the house where I knew Jennifer stayed, only to be told that she had travelled. I was shocked. That was when I went to the police to make a report.”
A police source in Ajegunle said when operatives visited Jennifer’s rented apartment, a lover who harboured her told the police that he did not know the suspect’s relation except a spare parts dealer who brought her from the village.
“The police located the spare parts dealer, who suggested that the woman might have travelled to her hometown in Okija, Anambra State. So, the dealer and the police went to Anambra, and they were on her trail for two days.
“On Wednesday, she was arrested. She and the baby were brought back to Lagos on the eve of Nigeria’s Independence Day. Some of the residents of the area wanted the police to release the suspect to them, so they would mob her, but that did not happen.”
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Joe Offor, had yet to be reached for comment on the incident, as his line did not connect as of press time, PUNCH reports.
An air hostess reportedly earned almost $1million in two years by having sex with aeroplane passengers in the toilet.
The woman's illicit activity went unnoticed until she was caught in a compromising position in the toilet and subsequently sacked.
This air hostess reportedly worked for an airline in the Middle East.
A source speaking to the Saudi Arabic language daily Sada said:
"She admitted that she had sex with many other passengers during flight and that she preferred long distance flights between the Gulf and the United States."
Airline sources said the woman charged Dh7,400 (a little above $2000) for each mile high liaison, and always found someone willing to pay her that amount on every flight.
The airline has not been named specifically, but Sada has reported that the flight attendant was immediately sacked and then deported.

Ebony Edozie is now writhing in severe pains after his wife forcefully ripped open his scrotum with one of the testes badly damaged during a scuffle in Imo state.
Sunday Sun reliably gathered from source that Mr. Edozie a pools agent suffered this cruel fate last Thursday when he reprimanded his wife, Ndidi for severely beating their three-year old sick daughter who had thrown up the medication being administered on her by the wife. The source further revealed that the wife who was angered by her husband’s reprimand engaged him in a verbal war which later degenerated into a serious fight.
Sunday Sun further learnt that the wife, during the fight, held tightly to her husband’s manhood apparently to render him powerless adding that every effort by the husband to free himself proved abortive as the wife forcefully yanked off one of the husband’s testes.
Narrating his ordeal in the hands of his wife from his hospital bed, Edozie said that he had been in hell since he married his wife. According to him, it took the doctor about six hours to stitch the scrotum that was badly damaged by his wife.
“After our last fight I thought that it was over but suddenly my wife grabbed me from behind and started pulling my manhood and every effort to free myself did not work as she pulled my manhood and refused to leave me until she had forcefully ripped open my scrotum while the second one ran into my stomach. I was rushed to Solbi Hospital at Umuokwe in Awo- Omumma by a close relation and a friend”.
He disclosed that his wife was well known in the entire village as a troublesome person who people try to avoid including her own family members. Mrs. Ndidi in her own account however accused her husband of having bitten her severally on her back and shoulder, adding that he also pulled her two breasts during the fight before she resorted to pulling his manhood in equal measure.

The Vatican dismissed a priest from his post in a Holy See office today Saturday Oct. 3rd after he told a newspaper he was gay and urged the Catholic Church to change its stance on homosexuality, Reuters reports. Monsignor Krzystof Charamsa was removed from his position at the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican's doctrinal arm where he had worked since 2003, a statement said.
Charamsa, 43, and a Polish theologian, announced he was gay and had a partner in a long interview with Italy's Corriere della Sera newspaper on Saturday. He later held a news conference with his partner, a Spanish man, and gay activists at a Rome restaurant.
They had planned a demonstration in front of the Vatican but changed the venue several hours before it was due to have started. The Vatican said Charamsa's dismissal had nothing to do with his comments on his personal situation, which it said “merit respect”.
But it said giving the interview and the planned demonstration was “grave and irresponsible” given their timing on the eve of a synod of bishops who will discuss family issues, including how to reach out to gays. It said his actions would subject the synod, which Pope Francis is due to open on Sunday, to “undue media pressure”.
The issue of homosexuality and the Church has dominated the aftermath of the pope's visit to the United States last week. In Saturday's interview, Charamsa said his partner had helped him come to terms with his sexuality and knew he would have to give up the priesthood, although the Vatican statement made no reference to this outcome.
"It's time for the Church to open its eyes about gay Catholics and to understand that the solution it proposes to them - total abstinence from a life of love - is inhuman," he was quoted as saying. The Catholic Church teaches that homosexuality is not a sin but that homosexual acts are.
The Vatican has been embarrassed by controversy over the pope's meeting with Kim Davis, a Kentucky county clerk who went to jail in September for refusing to honour a US Supreme Court ruling and issue same-sex marriage licenses. The Vatican said on Friday that “the only real audience” the pope had during his visit to Washington was with a small group that included a gay couple.
The decomposing body of a lecturer of Agricultural Economics at the Ambrose Ali University, Professor Paul Erie, who was abducted by kidnappers on June 16 at about 7:45pm along Agbor-Uromi road, by Igbanke village in Orhionmwon, Edo state, has been found.
The state police spokesperson, Stephen Onwochei, while confirming the recent development said 5 persons identified as Awulu Samson aka Saseki, Lucky Owuadegbe, Jeremiah Amayo, Chucks Edobor and Stephen Usiagwu have been arrested in connection with the murder.
Onwochei said one of the arrested suspects led the police to the shallow grave where they had buried the professor after killing him.
"He (one of the suspects) volunteered and led police pathologist, forensic experts, detectives, family members and the press to a bush at Igbanke village on October 1, 2015, at about 11pm, where a shallow grave was identified and successful exhumation of the suspected remains of Prof. Paul A. Erie was carried out.
"Items recovered from the grave and scene are consistent and suggestive that the remains are indeed that of Prof. Paul A. Erie as identified by family members.”he said
Unconfirmed reports say the suspects kidnapped had killed the late professor and still demanded for ransom from his family.

Despite Chinedu Ikedieze's success, the actor popularly known as Aki, is still not fulfilled because he believes that by this time in his life, he should have bagged a Ph.D degree.He tells Punch
Aside obtaining my first degree in mass communication at The Institute of Management and Technology (IMT), Enugu, I had the opportunity to go to New York Film Academy in 2004. I did film acting, it is like a certificate programme and I have learnt over the years on the job too. By now, the way I had it in mind when I finished school, I should have had my second Master’s degree if not Ph.D. Each time I think along that line, other things come to mind and I am not happy about that. When you see me again, I might just be finishing a particular course.”

An angry customer was so infuriated by poor service he got the police involved to complain that a prostitute had not given him enough time. The angry man called officers to say he had paid for 30 minutes with the sex worker, but she had only provided 10 minutes. The unusual objection was made to police in north Manchester on Thursday, October 2, reports the MEN. GMP Newton Heath tweeted the following morning:
“Call received yesterday ‘I paid for 30 mins with a prostitute but she only provided 10 mins."I want to complain’#dontwasteourtime #serious?”
It was the latest in a series of bizarre complaints to police across Greater Manchester. In July, a woman rang 999 when staff at a city centre hotel’s gym wouldn’t let her in – despite the fact she didn’t have a valid pass. And in June, a Salford pensioner alerted officers that his wife was ‘driving him round the bend’.
Lol, if to say the guy now beat the girl faint, them go talk say him no try no he called the police and they say na waste of time.

The immediate past Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, was on Friday arrested in London, PREMIUM TIMES can exclusively and authoritatively report.
The former minister, who was one of the most powerful officials of the President Goodluck Jonathan administration, was arrested Friday morning alongside four other people by the British law enforcement agency.
The identities of the four other people arrested along with her could be immediately ascertained. PREMIUM TIMES learnt she was arrested for offences related to bribery and corruption being investigated by the UK National Crime Agency.
Two top British officials in London have however confirmed the development to this newspaper. They requested not to be named because they have no permission to speak on the issue.
The British High Commission in Nigeria confirmed that some arrests were made Friday but declined to disclose the identities of those involved.
Joseph Abuku, Press and Public Affairs Officer, said, “This morning, five people between the ages of 21 and 60 were arrested on suspicion of bribery and corruption offences. The crimes are being investigated by the National Crime Agency.
“The National Crime Agency does not confirm identity at arrest nor provide information that could be used to corroborate the identity of an arrested individual.”
It is not clear whether the former minister was arrested based on request from the Nigerian government. President Muhammadu Buhari had on September 27 hinted that those who misappropriated billions of naira belonging to Nigeria’s state oil company NNPC, would soon be prosecuted.
Mr. Buhari said at a meeting with President Xi Jinping of China in New York that his administration was determined to fully sanitize Nigeria’s oil industry and make it totally free of corruption and shady deals.
The President did not, however, say how soon the prosecutions would start or if indeed investigations had been concluded and whether culpable individuals had been identified.
The NNPC under the immediate past administration of President Goodluck Jonathan was involved in several shady deals, many of which have been cancelled by the present government.
However, Mrs. Alison-Madueke, accused of several corrupt dealings, has stayed away from Nigeria since Mr. Buhari was sworn-in as president.

Kirikiri area of Lagos, was yesterday, thrown into pandemonium, following attempt by a mob to lynch some naval personnel whom they accused causing of the death of a conductor attached to a truck driver.
According to Vanguard,the deceased was reportedly crushed by the truck he was attached to, while the driver, Ibrahim Salima, was reportedly running away from naval personnel stationed at the Kirikiri bridge, by Tokunbo car park road, to control the perennial gridlock.
There were, however, different accounts to how the tragedy happened. A version of the account, alleged that naval personnel stationed there usually collect N500 from truck drivers who wait on the queue to get petroleum products from jetties, daily.
However at about 9am yesterday, Salisu was said to have refused to part with the amount, an action that was taken as affront by the naval ratings. One of them was said to have chased the moving truck, in the process of which he allegedly dragged the motor boy, identified as Abass Kasali, out.
Unfortunately, Kasali reportedly fell right under the truck and was crushed by the moving truck.
Another version of the account, said when the truck driver sighted the naval rating approaching, he reportedly jumped into the truck started the ignition, with a view to vacate the illegal parking spot. In the process, the conductor followed suit, but reportedly missed his steps and fell right under the truck, causing the tyres to run over him.
A third version also had it that the truck had a break failure and in the driver’s bid to control it, it rammed into a commercial motorcyclist, killing him on the spot.
The incident reportedly sparked off a protest, as an angry mob reportedly descended on the naval rating. Some of his colleagues who were on their way to work reportedly stopped to rescue him from the angry mob. But they were reportedly overpowered. It took the combined efforts of armed military men, including the Police to quell the situation.
Eye witnesses said: “The man was sitting down here (pointing to a position) when the tanker driver approached him to come and work with him, explaining that his real motor boy was ill. It was not up to two hours that we saw him struggling with a known naval personnel who usually comes around to collect N500 from all tanker drivers. By this time, the driver had veered off his lane in a bid to move. In the process, he hit a car with the number plate BX 941 ABC and a motorcycle with plate number KSF342 QE.“Along the line, the rating succeeded in dragging the motor boy down from the truck. Unfortunately, he fell and had his head crushed by the tyres of the truck and died instantly.“A mob held the naval personnel hostage and locked him inside a shop until the arrival of his colleagues who came and rescued him. Tanker drivers and their conductors started protesting the death of their member. But the Navy condoned off all routes leading to their barracks and shot sporadically to wade off the protesters.”
When Vanguard arrived the scene, blood stained as well as particles suspected to be the deceased’s skull were sighted on the spot. The incident worsened the traffic situation in the area, as vehicles remained stand still position for the better part of the day.
However, when this reporter attempted to take shots of the scene, some men in plain clothes who identified themselves as naval personnel apprehended this reporter. Her phone was seized, as she was whisked into a waiting van, to a place where some uniformed naval personnel were, with threat from some of them to beat her up. It took the intervention of some officers of the ranks of Lieutenants to free this reporter from the the ratings.
