ECHO EMMANUEL: By far, APC is Deadlier Than Boko Haram & Taliban Combined 💀☠💀 !!!

Woe betide any soul that still believe in the disastrous change of the ruling party.

Governance is not a tea cup party, neither its a voodoo. APC is dead on arrival because they are full of vendetta against the common masses not just PDP

APC and their cohorts have taken us backward to the medieval era that was characterized by unabated killings, porous borders, sinking economy, intertribal and ethno religious clashes.

The good news is that, their days are numbered. Let our PVC do the cleansing. The same wizardry brooms they brought shall be used to wade them off to pit of hell.

In an unjust society, silence is a crime.

Together we shall redeem our fatherland from those usurpers.

94 School Girls Are Missing After Boko Haram Attacked All Girls School In Nigeria’s Northeast


Parents and school authorities have revealed that at least
94 school girls from Government Girls Science and
Technical Secondary School at Dapchi town in Bursari local
government area of Yobe state are missing after an all-
girls school was attacked by Islamist militant group, Boko
Haram. The militants invaded the town on Monday and
targeted the all-girls school after arriving the town around
7 pm with over 18 gun trucks. A community source told
Saharareporters that at least four bodies of students were
recovered from the bush in the nearby town of Kusur.
Although the raid happened on Monday, the school
authorities and parents waited to do a head count of the
students to be sure of the exact situation. According to
residents of the community, Boko Haram terrorists came
into Dapchi town with trucks mounted with high caliber
weapons shooting sporadically and later headed to the
girls’ hostels at the school where some 740 girls were
resident. The sound from the sect’s militants explosives
and gunshots alerted the students and their teachers who
immediately scampered into nearby bushes for safety.
However, after the headcount on Tuesday, it was
discovered that at least 94 of the girls were still missing.
The school was immediately closed down while education
authorities and security forces in the state began efforts to
locate the missing students.
Residents and civilian militia groups in Dapchi say they
believe Boko Haram had carefully planned to kidnap
schoolgirls in their town over some time. A week before
the attack soldiers protecting the town were moved
elsewhere leaving the town vulnerable. Nigerian security
forces backed by military jets later arrived Dapchi and
“chased away” the terrorists who had continued on a
looting spree. Nigerian military sources are unusually silent
about latest claims by parents that the girls might have
been abducted after Monday night raid. A military source
last night told Saharareporters that they could not confirm
or deny if the missing girls were abducted.
In April 2014, Boko Haram kidnapped more than 270 girls
from a school in the northeastern town of Chibok in Borno

Must read/Epic-The playboy who got away with $242m – using ‘black magic’

One day in August 1995 a man called Foutanga Babani
Sissoko walked into the head office of the Dubai Islamic
Bank and asked for a loan to buy a car. The manager
agreed, and Sissoko invited him home for dinner. It was
the prelude, writes the BBC’s Brigitte Scheffer, to one of
the most audacious confidence tricks of all time.
Over dinner, Sissoko made a startling claim. He told the
bank manager, Mohammed Ayoub, that he had magic
powers. With these powers, he could take a sum of money
and double it. He invited his Emirati friend to come again,
and to bring some cash.
Black magic is condemned by Islam as blasphemous. Even
so, there’s still a widespread belief in it, and Ayoub was
taken in by the colourful and mysterious businessman from
a remote village in Mali.
When he arrived at Sissoko’s house the next time, carrying
his money, a man burst out of a room saying a spirit – a
djinn – had just attacked him. He warned Ayoub not to
anger the djinn, for fear his money would not be doubled.
So Ayoub left his cash in the magic room, and waited.
He said he saw lights and smoke. He heard the voices of
spirits. Then there was silence.
The money had indeed doubled.
Ayoub was delighted – and the heist could begin.
“He believed it was Black Magic – that Mr Sissoko could
double the money,” says Alan Fine, a Miami attorney the
bank later asked to investigate the crime.
“So he would send money to Mr Sissoko – the bank’s money
– and he expected it to come back in double the amount.”
Between 1995 and 1998, Ayoub made 183 transfers into
Sissoko’s accounts around the world. Sissoko was also
running up big credit card bills – in the millions according to
Fine – which Ayoub would settle on his behalf.
In 1998 I was living in Dubai, and I heard rumours that the
bank was in trouble. When a newspaper reported that the
bank was having cashflow problems, crowds of people
gathered outside, waiting to withdraw their money.
The Dubai authorities downplayed the crisis. They called it
“a little difficulty that did not lead to any financial losses
either in the bank’s investments or depositors’ accounts”.
But this wasn’t true.
“The people who owned the bank took a huge, huge hit. It
was not covered by insurance,” says Fine. “The bank was
saved because the government stepped in to help. But they
gave up a lot of their equity in the bank for that to happen.”
And where was Foutanga Babani Sissoko? By this time, he
was far away.
One of the beauties of his scheme was that he did not
need to be in Dubai to keep receiving the money.
In November 1995, only weeks after putting on the magic
display for Mohammed Ayoub, Sissoko visited another bank
in New York, and did much more than open an account.
“He walked into Citibank one day, no appointment, met a
teller and he ended up marrying her,” says Alan Fine. “And
there’s reason to believe she made his relationship with
Citibank more comfortable, and he ended up opening an
account there through which, from memory, I’m just going
to say more than $100m was wire transferred into the
United States.”
In fact, according to a case brought by the Dubai Islamic
Bank against Citibank, more than $151m “was debited by
Citibank from DIB’s correspondent account without proper
authorisation”. The case was later dropped.
Sissoko paid his new wife more than half a million dollars
for her help.
“I don’t know under what legal regime he married her but he
called her a wife and she believed she was a wife,” says
Fine.
“She understood that there were many other wives. Some
from Africa, some from Miami, some from New York.”
With the bank’s money rolling in, Sissoko could fulfil his
dream of opening an airline for West Africa. He bought a
used Hawker-Siddeley 125 and a pair of old Boeing 727s.
This was the birth of Air Dabia, named after his village in
Mali.
But in July 1996, Sissoko made a serious mistake as he
tried to buy two Huey helicopters dating from the Vietnam
War, for reasons that remain unclear.
“His explanation of why he wanted them was emergency
air ambulance. But the helicopters he was looking at were
pretty big helicopters, they were not the kind that you see
running back and forth to hospitals and trauma centres in
the United States, they were much bigger than that,” says
Fine.
Because they could be refitted as gunships, the helicopters
needed a special export licence. Sissoko’s men tried to
speed things up by offering a $30,000 bribe to a customs
officer. Instead, they got themselves arrested. And Interpol
issued a warrant for Sissoko’s arrest too. He was caught in
Geneva, where he’d gone to open another bank account.
Tom Spencer, a Miami lawyer who was asked to represent
Sissoko, vividly remembers going to meet him in Geneva’s
Champ-Dollon prison.
“I talked with the prison warden, who asked me whether or
not Sissoko was going to go to the United States,” Spencer
says.
“I said, ‘Well, you know, we’ll see.’ And he said, ‘Well,
please delay it as long as possible.’ And I said, ‘Well why?’
And he said, ‘Because he’s flying in fantastic meals from
Paris every night, for us.’ And that was my first bizarre
encounter with Baba Sissoko.”
Sissoko was quickly extradited to the US, where he started
to mobilise influential supporters.
The readiness of diplomats to vouch for Sissoko shocked
the judge presiding over his bail hearing. And Tom Spencer
was stunned when a former US senator, Birch Bayh,
announced he was joining Sissoko’s defence team.
“Well, you have to ask yourself, why would anyone get
involved for a foreign national who has no apparent value to
the United States?” says Fine. “I don’t know the answer to
the question. But it’s an interesting one to pose.”
The US government wanted Sissoko held in custody, but he
was bailed for $20m (£14.5m) – a Florida record at the
time.
Then he went on a spending spree.
His defence team was rewarded with Mercedes or Jaguar
cars. But that was just the start.
Sissoko spent half a million dollars in one jewellery store
alone, Fine recalls, and hundreds of thousands in others. In
one men’s clothing store he spent more than $150,000.
“He would come in and buy two three four cars at the
same time, come back another week and buy two three
four cars at the same time. It was just, the money was
like wind,” says car dealer Ronil Dufrene.
He calculates that he sold Sissoko between 30 and 35 cars
in total.
Sissoko became a Miami celebrity. He already had several
wives, but that didn’t stop him marrying more – and
housing them in some of the 23 apartments he rented in
the city.
“‘Playboy’ is the right word to describe him. Because he is
very elegant. And handsome. And he dresses with great
style. He blew a lot of money in Miami,” says Sissoko’s
cousin, Makan Mousa.
Sissoko was also giving away large sums to good causes.
His trial was approaching, and he knew the value of good
publicity. In one case witnessed by his cousin, he gave
£300,000 ($413,000) to a high-school band that needed
money to travel to New York for a Thanksgiving Day
parade.
Another of his defence lawyers, Prof H T Smith,
remembers that on Thursdays he would drive around giving
money to homeless people.
“I was thinking, is this some modern day Robin Hood? Why
would you steal money and give it away? It doesn’t make
any sense,” he says.
“The [Miami] Herald did a story just after he left, and I think
– I don’t want to exaggerate but I think they said they could
chronicle like $14m he gave away. He was only here 10
months. That’s over a million dollars a month.”
Alan Fine took a slightly more cynical view.
“So much of what he did was for image and to perpetuate
a belief that he was a very powerful man and fabulously
wealthy. He would give away money, but… to my
knowledge it was never done in a way that he didn’t get
publicity for it.”
Despite this PR drive, when Sissoko’s case came to court
he disregarded his lawyers’ advice and pleaded guilty.
Maybe he calculated that this would provoke fewer
questions about his finances.
The sentence was 43 days in prison and a $250,000 fine –
paid, of course, by the Dubai Islamic Bank, though without
its knowledge.
After serving only half this sentence, he was given early
release in return for a $1m payment to a homeless shelter.
The rest he was meant to serve under house arrest in Mali.
Instead he returned home to a hero’s welcome.
It was around this time that the Dubai Islamic Bank’s
auditors began to notice that something was wrong. Ayoub
was getting nervous, and Sissoko had stopped answering
his calls.
Finally he confessed to a colleague, who asked how much
was missing. Too ashamed to say, Ayoub wrote it on a
scrap of paper – 890 million dirhams, the equivalent of
$242m (£175m).
He was found guilty of fraud and given three years in jail.
It’s rumoured he was also forced to undergo an exorcism,
to cure him of his belief in black magic.
Sissoko has never faced justice. In his absence, a Dubai
court sentenced him to three years for fraud and practising
magic. Interpol issued an arrest warrant and he remains a
wanted man.
I found transcripts from other trials at which Sissoko failed
to appear, including one in Paris. His lawyer claimed he
was a scapegoat for Ayoub’s actions and the bank’s money
had gone elsewhere, but the court didn’t swallow it and
convicted him of money-laundering.
For 12 years, between 2002 and 2014, Sissoko was a
member of parliament in Mali, which gave him immunity
from prosecution. For the last four years, no longer an MP,
he has been protected by the fact that Mali has no
extradition treaty with any other country.
The Dubai Islamic Bank, nonetheless, is still pursuing him
through the courts.
I flew to Mali’s capital, Bamako, to find people who might
tell me about Sissoko.
I tracked down his seamstress, who remembered him
fondly.
“The last time I saw him, two or three years ago, I made
him a suitcase of clothes. If he didn’t give out presents, he
wasn’t happy. It’s his style. He loves to give things to
people,” she said.
I also found his driver, Lukali Ibrahim.
“The good thing about him is that when things are going
well you can expect a lot of presents from him. He likes to
help people with their problems,” he said. “The bad thing, I
can tell you a few. This is someone who always gives
people hope but instead of telling you the truth, he’s just
leading you on.”
In the market I found a goldsmith who had only praise for a
client who would call and ask him to make presents for his
friends.
I also heard that he could be found living near his native
village, Dabia, which had given its name to Sissoko’s short-
lived airline, near Mali’s border with Guinea and Senegal.
After a long drive I found a house that fitted the description
I’d been given.
Suddenly, surrounded by armed guards, there he was.
Babani Sissoko, in person, now perhaps 70 years old.
He agreed to an interview. The atmosphere was edgy and
slightly surreal. He began by telling me about his entry into
the world.
“My name is Sissoko Foutanga Dit Babani. You know, the
day I was born all the villages round here burned down. The
villagers went round shouting, ‘Marietto has had a boy.’ The
fire leapt and leapt. There used to be a lot of bush around.”
He then talked about his efforts to rebuild the village,
which began in 1985, and about the money he made. At
one point he had been worth $400m, he said.
Eventually, I asked about the $242m he had received from
the Dubai Islamic Bank.
“Madame, this $242m, this is a slightly crazy story. The
gentlemen from the bank should explain how they lost all
that money. I mean the $242m. Listen, how could that
money have left the bank the way it did? That’s the
problem. It’s not this man alone [Ayoub] who authorises
the transfers. When the bank transfers money it’s not just
one person who does it. Several people have to do it.”
I pointed out to him that Mohammed Ayoub had claimed at
his trial that Sissoko had put him under a spell.
“The gentleman you’re talking about, I’ve seen him and met
him,” he said.
But the heist, he denied.
“The only contact I had with him was when I went to buy a
car. The bank bought it for me and I repaid the loan. It was
a Japanese car.”
Had he controlled people by means of black magic?
“Madame, if a person had that kind of power, why would he
work? If you have that kind of power you can stay where
you are and rob all the banks of the world. In the United
States, France, Germany, everywhere. Even here in Africa.
You could rob all the banks you want.”
I asked him if he was still rich.
His answer was blunt.
“No I’m not rich any longer. I’m poor.”
Defying Interpol, Sissoko has spent a remarkable 20 years
on the run, even if he has squandered all his money and
can never leave Mali.
He has never spent a day in jail for the black magic bank
heist.

Boko Haram: Schoolgirls escape militant attack

The Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi,
in Burasari local government area of Yobe state has
been attacked by suspected Boko Haram terrorists
– According to a teacher in the school, the attackers
stormed the school around 7pm through the eastern
part of the town
– Security operatives have been mobilized to the
location
Suspected Boko Haram members have attacked
Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, in
Burasari local government area of Yobe state.
The attack was confirmed by the Yobe state
commissioner of police, Abdulmaliki Sunmonu.
Sumonu confirmed the attack in an interview with
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
He said: “At about 5.30 p.m today, the suspected
insurgents attacked Dapchi, headquarters of Bursari
local government area.
“The details are not immediately available, we are still
collating the details including the casualties.”
A teacher in the school, who escaped the attack, told
Daily Trust that the attackers stormed the school
around 7pm through the eastern part of the town.
“They shot sporadically and forced the school food
store opened. We (staff) and the students ran into the
bush for safety,” he said.
When asked, whether there was abduction of the
girls he said it’s too early for him to comment on it.
“For now, we can’t say anything until all the students
returned tomorrow morning,” he said.
A resident, Alhaji Ibrahim, said the attackers
stormed the village in six Hilux vans through the
eastern part while shooting sporadically.
“They forced some shops opened and stole food items.
We are yet to know if there are casualties because,
everyone in the town has scampered for safety. Some
fled to bush, others into their homes.
“They also attacked military location at the town
entrance bridge. But we cannot tell if there are casualties
there,” he added.
The commissioner, however, said security
operatives have been reinforced in the area to
ensure total security.
Alhaji Zanna Abatcha, chairman Bursari local
government council told NAN that the suspected
insurgents have already left the town and more
security operatives have been deployed to maintain
security.
“The details are not known yet because it’s already
night, we will get the comprehensive details tomorrow,”
he said.
The attack happened on the same day the terrorists
launched a deadly attack at the University of
Maiduguri, two weeks after they released three
lecturers of the institution following months of
captivity.
A Boko Haram bomber detonated his explosive in
the evening on Monday, February 19, near a
students’ hostel, but was gunned down before he
could unleash mayhem.
