How A Lady Stole 55,000 Naira Inside First Bank At Lekki

Drama happened inside first bank at osapa london branch this morning. I was inside this bank to withdraw some amount of money. Inside this bank there was a very huge crowd and a very long queue. This guy came in to deposit some cash (55 thousand naira) but when he saw the crowd he didn’t want to queue and went to the front to approach a lady who is around no ten on the queue and begged her to help in paying his cash.

He gave the already filled teller to that lady and the cash after standing for about two to three minutes. He went to sit on a seat very close to the queue. Few minutes later, he really enjoy the coolness of the air condition and surrendered to sleep.

When it was about three people before that lady, she looked back and discovered that that guy is already sleeping. She just told the next person that she is coming and left the banking hall through the exit door.

By the time this guy woke up, she was gone. It was like a dream. He asked the people in front if they saw a lady in green top and they reply she left few seconds ago. He ran outside but the lady was no where to be found. He was outside the bank shouting my boss money.

Now see what he caused himself by being inpatient. Hmm my people be careful this is not a joke, I was an eye witness. It happened around 10:30 am today.-ojuoluwani

Are Indian ‘doctors’ decieving Nigerian medical students in the Carribean?

This is one issue the government should take seriously,on my trip to the caribbean,i notice something very shocking,shops were been opened as medical universities and everybody is looking for Nigerian students.

The locals don’t attend this school,only Nigerians and they don’t fail there,as long as you pay the fees.

If the government doesn’t act quickly am telling you that a large number of fake Nigerian doctors claiming to have been train abroad would soon be on there way back.

It was so bad that final year medical studenta can’t fix I.V line and all this schools are set up by Indians deceiving Nigerians that they would end up in the states.

After they collect their money they then tell the student to bring more Nigerians and for every Nigeria they bring 1000 usd would be given to them from the presons school fees.

I was really shock to discover all this. I meet some officials and they told me in clear terms that if Nigerian Government are not stopping the student from coming why should they care.- Onoja

Ndigbo are better off in APC despite my loss – Okorocha insists

Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has called on Ndigbo to imbibe team spirit and unity of purpose in the quest to place Southeast at the mainstream of Nigerian politics, arguing that the Igbos were better off in the All Progressives Congress (APC) than anywhere else.

Disclosing this when he received Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo, Imo State Chapter, who recently paid him a courtesy visit at Government House in Owerri, the State capital, Okorocha regretted the level of marginalization the Igbos suffer in the affairs of the nation, irrespective of the fact that they are part of the tripod of Nigeria.

Governor Okorocha asserted that all the key positions in the country have eluded the Ndigbo as well as the siting of developmental projects by the Federal government.
He disclosed that his participation in the APC presidential primary election was to ensure that Igbos are given their pride of place in Nigeria, stressing that “for me, time has come for Igbos to reason together; Ndi Igbo should no longer be relegated to the background, we should take our rightful position in Nigeria polity and say no to second fidel.
With my action it is crystal clear to APC and entire Nigeria that Igbos are alive to take their position. I will not stop the struggle till there is liberation for Ndi Igbo and until ordinary man is liberated”.
