WATCH VIDEO BROADCAST WITH FULL TRANSCRIPT OF PRESIDENT BUHARI NATIONWIDE ADDRESS, On Monday 21st August, 2017

 

My dear citizens,
I am very grateful to God and to all Nigerians for their prayers. I am pleased to be back on home soil among my brothers and sisters.
2. In the course of my stay in the United Kingdom, I have been kept in daily touch with events at home. Nigerians are robust and lively in discussing their affairs, but I was distressed to notice that some of the comments, especially in the social media have crossed our national red lines by daring to question our collective existence as a nation. This is a step too far.
3. In 2003 after I joined partisan politics, the late Chief Emeka Ojukwu came and stayed as my guest in my hometown Daura. Over two days we discussed in great depth till late into the night and analyzed the problems of Nigeria. We both came to the conclusion that the country must remain one and united.
4. Nigeria’s unity is settled and not negotiable. We shall not allow irresponsible elements to start trouble and when things get bad they run away and saddle others with the responsibility of bringing back order, if necessary with their blood.
5. Every Nigerian has the right to live and pursue his business anywhere in Nigeria without let or hindrance.
6. I believe the very vast majority of Nigerians share this view.
7. This is not to deny that there are legitimate concerns. Every group has a grievance. But the beauty and attraction of a federation is that it allows different groups to air their grievances and work out a mode of co-existence.
8. The National Assembly and the National Council of State are the legitimate and appropriate bodies for national discourse.
9. The national consensus is that, it is better to live together than to live apart.
10. Furthermore, I am charging the Security Agencies not to let the successes achieved in the last 18 months be a sign to relax.
11. Terrorists and criminals must be fought and destroyed relentlessly so that the majority of us can live in peace and safety.
12. Therefore we are going to reinforce and reinvigorate the fight not only against, elements of Boko Haram which are attempting a new series of attacks on soft targets, kidnappings, farmers versus herdsmen clashes in addition to ethnic violence fuelled by political mischief makers. We shall tackle them all.
13. Finally, dear Nigerians, our collective interest now is to eschew petty differences and come together to face common challenges of economic security, political evolution and integration as well as lasting peace among all Nigerians.
14. I remain resolutely committed to ensuring that these goals are achieved and maintained. I am so glad to be home.
15. Thank you and may God bless our dear Nation.

How Nigerian Show Promoter, T-Money Adu Entered Jail in London Over £1 million Fraud

 Nigerian Show Promoter, T-Money Adu Jailed in London Over £1 million  Fraud

A Nigerian fraudster, Babatunde Adu a.k.a T-Money, who laundered almost a million pounds in a year has been jailed for six years and four months.

His house was searched in October 2016 as part of a week-long police initiative to tackle card fraudsters, after intelligence suggested he had been using compromised cards to buy electronic goods with a value of £15,000 and sell these on.

Officers found a number of credit cards and a number of fraudulent documents, including a driving licence with Adu’s picture but using an alias. When police researched this name they found a bank account which had been used in 2014 to receive £50,000 from a romance fraud.



Further enquiries found there had been a £900,000 turnover in a bank account during the previous year.

Adu was found guilty of disguising criminal property at Inner London Crown Court on Tuesday, 4 July, following a trial and was sentenced to a total of six years and four months’ imprisonment. He had already pleaded guilty to three other charges.

Detective Constable Damian Ward, of the Dedicated Card and Payment Crime Unit (DCPCU), said: “Adu was a career fraudster who had falsely obtained money through a variety of means and I am delighted with this conviction. This sentence should send a message to any would-be fraudsters that you will be caught and punished.”



Intelligence about Adu was passed to the Dedicated Card and Payment Crime Unit to investigate during a week of action against remote purchase fraud in October which saw the unit work with retailers, banks and the card schemes to take action against fraudsters. The DCPCU is sponsored by the banking industry and made up of officers from the City of London Police and the Metropolitan Police Service, bank investigators and support staff from UK Finance.

Established in April 2002, the DCPCU has since achieved an estimated £486 million in savings from reduced fraud activity. The DCPCU is a unique proactive police unit, with a national remit. It is sponsored by UK Finance, the new industry body representing around 300 firms in the UK providing credit, banking, markets and payments-related services.
