“This morning, I have handed over the security operative, Abdullahi M. Hassan, to the Department of State Security (DSS) for investigation and appropriate administrative and judicial action. In the interim, he has been suspended from the convoy.

“l expect, and I will see to it that the family of Mr Ifeanyi Okereke receives the full measure of justice so that their bereavement is not compounded by any actions that can cause them further pain and suffering.

“I have expressed my personal condolence to his family and have arranged to meet with them when the parents of Mr Okereke, who are already on their way, arrive in Abuja.

“Additionally, I have committed to them that I will support his wife and the immediate family he has left behind.

“I commiserate with the family of Mr Ifeanyi Okereke and ask all Nigerians to join me at this time to pray for the peaceful repose of his soul.”

A security aide to the Speaker had shot the vendor in the head.

The incident, which occurred at the Federal Secretariat, Abuja, around 3pm on Thursday, had caused panic in the area and led to protests by newspaper vendors.

“Keep me out of your mouth” Adebayor fires at ex-girlfriend, Dillish Matthews, accuses her of lying



Togolese international footballer and former Arsenal attacker, Emmanuel Adebayor, has hit hard at his ex-girlfriend, Dillish Matthews in several posts made on his Instagram story.

Sharing his side of the story after Dillish had said months earlier that she got tired of being humiliated by Adebayor on the internet, Adebayo accused Dillish of lying and manipulating him whilst they were dating.

The ex-footballer accused Dillish of being a bully and warned her to keep his name out of her mouth for them to live in peace.

He wrote,

“Imagine you sending money to your partner as a gift for her family and friends as a retribution and gratitude for them taking good care of you while in Namibia only to find out months later that less than 6% of what you sent to her was distributed to only her choice of friends and nothing to the family.

“Your girlfriend tells you she’s going on a weekend trip with her best friend in Swakopmund Namibia, a few days later, she’s completely unreachable then you end up finding out that she’s in Luanda, Angola and she says she doesn’t know how she got there.

“How can I even be jealous, obsessed and envious of someone I was helping to grow in life, meanwhile I was being manipulated and lied to.

“I wish you love, peace and above all healing. Nonetheless, you are a bully but you found your match and I have evidence.

“Keep me out of your mouth and life and we will be good.

Now I have seen that man that I want to have baby for. Even if I can’t, I’ll use a surrogate. I am ready for marriage and would be getting married soon. I had always wanted someone that would be crazy about me even after knowing that I am controversial. I had dated someone that the mum stormed my house to warn me that her son would never marry me.

My fiancé is so crazy about me. I dared him to tattoo my name on his body and he did more than 5. He also added a poem tattoo on his body for me. His parents are late, same as mine, so we are cool,”
