Teenage girl stabs Uber driver to death for reasons known to her

A teenage girl, 16, stole a knife and a machete from a Walmart then stabbed her Uber to death, police said.

The horrific attack carried out by Eliza Wasni was completely unprovoked, prosecutors in Chicago said. The victim Grant Nelson, 34, managed to pull over and flee his Uber car for help.

“The victim runs to the lobby door and is heard banging and screaming, ‘Help me, help me, I’m going to die,'” said Assistant State’s Attorney Michelle Cunningham.

Police and paramedics were called and Mr Nelson was rushed to hospital but later died.

Wasni, who has been charged with first-degree murder as an adult, tried to driver Mr Nelson’s car away from the scene but hit a bollard.

Officers responding to 911 calls found her hiding, still holding a knife and a machete.

Mr Nelson’s younger sister Alexandra told of her family’s shock and grief.

“The loss of intelligence and conversation and nuance and thoughtfulness that he brought into all of our lives is going to be felt, and it will reverberate with us throughout the coming weeks and months and years, and it is not a hole that can be easily filled,” she told ABC 7 Chicago.

Female Thugs Poured Paint Down Ex-Friend's Throat In 'Long And Sustained' Torture Ordeal

Two women poured paint down their former friend’s throat and stabbed her with a fork in a “long and sustained” torture ordeal. Layla Warburton, 25, and Sharna Christie, 26, also kicked and punched the victim, smashed a TV over her head and strangled her with a cord.

The pair had been invited into the home of ‘American’ Jamie Wijnaendts but then subjected her to an horrific attack after an argument broke out, Gloucester Crown Court heard. Warburton denied attempting to inflict grievious body harm but was found guilty after a trial,
She was jailed for six years.

Christie admitted the same offence and also pleaded guilty to unrelated offences of assaulting a man causing actual bodily harm and robbing a woman of cigarettes.She was jailed for four years and eight months.

At the time of the brutal attack last November Warburton, had been out of prison only a month after serving a four year sentence for another assault.

Prosecutor Julian Kesner told the court said Ms Wijnaendts was in her own flat in Gloucester when the defendants, who both knew her, paid a visit.

“An argument broke out and the two defendants attacked her and she was kicked and punched by them,” he said.

“Her evidence to the court was that the two of them were like peas in a pod and it was very much a joint enterprise by them.”It was a long and sustained attack that took place.

“It started with punches and kicks followed by paint being poured into Ms Wijnaendts’ mouth.

“She was hit over the head with a TV. “

“A cord was wrapped around her neck and pulled so tight that there were clear marks left where there had been an attempt to strangle her.”

Judge Jamie Tabor QC added: “Someone tried to stick a fork into her, too.”

The prosecutor showed the judge a picture of Ms Wijnaendts’ badly injured face  with four prong marks above her right eye, her left eye badly bruised and closed, and cord marks around her neck.

Facebook and WhatsApp group Admins could go to jail for offensive posts in India

facebook and whatsapp group admin

According to a joint order issued by the district magistrate of Varanasi and the city’s police chief, offensive posts such as rumours or fake new circulated through WhatsApp or Facebook groups can land the group admin in jail.

Varanasi DM Yogeshwar Ram Mishra and SP Nitin Tiwari recently issued  a joint order that said an FIR (first investigation report) can be filed against a group administrator if factually incorrect, rumour or misleading information is circulated on his/her social media group.

The order partly reads, “there are several groups on social media which are named on news groups and also groups with other names which are propagating news and information which is not authentic. These are being forwarded without cross-checking”.

The order stated social media group administrators should be ready to bear the responsibility and ownership of the groups. The administrator must include only those members who are personally known to him or her. If any statement is made by a group member which is fake, can cause religious disharmony, or rumour, the group admin must deny it on the group and remove the member from the group.

“In the event of inaction from the group admin, he or she will be considered guilty and action will be taken against the group admin,” the order stated.

Such a post must also be reported to the nearest police station so that action can be taken against the member under the law.  A case under cyber crime law, Information Technology Act and Indian Penal Code will be filed in case of violation of these guidelines. The order also made it clear that orders of Supreme Court and various high courts will be considered while initiating action.  “While freedom of expression on social media is important, it also comes with a responsibility,” the order said.

Gun shooting kills two in Saudi Arabia

Reports confirmed it that two people were killed and another injured when a man opened fire inside a private school’s administration building in Saudi Arabia’s capital, Riyadh, but no students were present, the head of the school told Reuters.

The shooting was “a case of a disgruntled employee,” said Talal al-Maiman, CEO of Kingdom Holding and chairman of Kingdom Schools, which operated the school.

“It is with regret that the administration building of Kingdom Schools witnessed this morning a shooting incident by an Arab national who was dismissed from the school four years ago on the basis of anger issues and an unstable personality.

The victims were a Saudi national and a Palestinian national, he said, and the situation at the school was contained as of mid-afternoon.

The school had been closed about a week before the Ramadan holiday, in line with a royal decree.
The holiday began on Saturday. Police cars could be seen at the school campus, but the scene was otherwise quiet.

An Interior Ministry spokesman said it was a “criminal case” and that Riyadh Police would issue a statement with further details.

Kingdom Schools is owned and operated by Kingdom Holdings, a company of Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. It is situated in northern Riyadh.

Maiman said the school’s private security guards followed established procedures until the case was handed over to government authorities.

EFCC seizes Goodluck's godson George Turnah's second property in Abuja

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has seized another property from George Turnah, a godson to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The property, which is located at Citec Estate, Gwarinpa, Abuja, is a duplex. Although the EFCC has yet to evaluate the value of the property, sources told our correspondent that such property would go for between N70m and N100m.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the inscription, ‘EFCC, Keep off’ was seen across the fence and the gate of the building.

The commission is still tracing Turnah’s remaining properties.

Last week, the anti-graft agency seized a mansion and some other properties allegedly traced to Turnah who is standing trial for an alleged N3bn fraud.

The commission also froze about seven bank accounts through which Turnah allegedly received billions of naira.

Justice Ibrahim Watilat had granted the interim forfeiture order based on an application filed before the court by the EFCC’s counsel, Adebola Olatunji.

Turnah, together with seven companies, were arraigned on 12 charges bordering on obtaining money by false pretences, money laundering and abuse of office to the tune of N3, 094, 268, 235.69.

Meanwhile, some aggrieved youths in Bayelsa State on Tuesday staged a peaceful demonstration in Yenagoa, the state capital, in support of the EFCC.

The youths, particularly commended the anti-graft agency for the arrest and detention of  Turner.

On Tuesday, the angry youths, under the aegis of the Concerned Citizens of Bayelsa State, led by their coordinators, Chief Harrow Zuokomor and Mr. Abule Bethel, said Bayelsa was still in shock at the magnitude of funds seized from Turner by the EFCC.

The youths were armed with placards bearing inscriptions such as, ‘We thank the EFCC for exposing corrupt persons,’ ‘Enemies of Niger Delta exposed,’ ‘Well done EFCC’ and ‘George Turner impoverished Bayelsa State.’

The protesters, who started the solidarity march from the popular Ekeki Park to the state House of Assembly Complex and the Headquarters of the State Police Command, noted that they had read and seen reports of the funds allegedly diverted by Turner.

They pleaded with the EFCC to consider returning the money to the state.

Zuokomor, while submitting the group’s petition to the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Asuquo Amba, for onward submission to the EFCC, expressed concern over the level of corruption among political appointees.

Addressing the demonstrators, Asuquo promised to deliver their message to the appropriate authorities.

Breaking: Prisoner on death row captured after he escaped five years ago

A condemned prisoner, Rabi Ismail, who escaped from lawful custody in Hadejia prison on December 16, 2011, has been recaptured.

The fugitive was arrested by the Intelligence Unit of the Nigerian Prisons Service with the support of men of the Department of State Services.

Prisoner on death row captured after he escaped five years ago

Ismail was sentenced to death by hanging for culpable homicide by a High Court in Kano on January 5, 2005.

She was subsequently held in Kaduna Central Prison from where she was transferred to Hadejia prison before she escaped about five years ago, the prison service public relations officer, Francis Enobore, said in a statement on Tuesday.

He expressed the appreciation of the Controller-General of Prisons, Jaa’faru Ahmed, to the DSS and the police for their assistance in recapturing the fugitive.

He appealed to members of the public to continue to provide useful information on escapees and indeed any criminal element in their midst to security agents, noting that such outlaws posed a security threat to the society.

Enobore said the CG said that security measures had been strengthened to prevent inmates in prison custody from escaping.

“Furthermore, escapees still at large will be fished out of their hidings no matter how long it takes to do so,” he assured.

Woman offers her 4-months-old baby for N100,000 naira

Court

A young woman aged 25, Sandra Ishaku, was on Tuesday arraigned at a Jos Upper Area Court for allegedly selling her four-month-old baby for N100,000.

She along with three others Amechi Emmanuel, Jones Osim (a lawyer) and Gladys Chukwuma were charged with conspiracy, cruelty, and child abandonment.

According to the prosecutor, Mr. L. O. Ocho, Ishaku, on May 10, 2017, sold her baby to Chukwuma for N100,000.

Ocho told the court that the transaction was carried out in Jos, in the chambers of Osim, a legal practitioner. “Ishaku (the accused) conspired with Emmanuel and sold her baby to Chukwuma, who had just relocated from Ebonyi State to Jos,” he said.

The Presiding Judge, Yahaya Mohammed, did not take the plea of the accused, opting to remand three of them – Ishaku, Emmanuel and Chukwuma in prison custody, while the matter was adjourned to June 1, when hearing would commence.

Mohammed, however, granted Osim bail after his counsel, Mr. Lawrence Anya, pleaded that he be released on bail to the Nigeria Bar Association Plateau State Chapter.

A similar appeal by Mr. Peter Ikeolu, counsel to the three others, had earlier been rejected after the prosecutor argued that freeing them would affect investigations into the matter.
