No fewer than 24 ladies have accused a real estate agent, Godknows Adolphus, of rape.

The ladies, in a series of tweets on Tuesday, said Adolphus, also known as Yangy on social media, took advantage of and defiled them.

Yangy was also described as a student of a Babcock University in Ogun State.

One of his victims, who sent a direct message to a Twitter activist, Angie, said she was afraid of coming out because of stigmatization and possible backlash on social media.

The victim stated in the message to Angie that the modus operandi of Yangy was to be friends with ladies and later invite them over to his house or his uncle’s hotel in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, where he used to defile them.

The message read in part, “There is this guy I want you to help me warn girls to stay away from because he’s always inviting people over and raping them. I’m also among his victims; I can’t speak for some reason or even use my handle because I can’t bare answering questions from people.

“This guy I’m talking about, we used to be friends till he raped me and his excuse was that he was tempted. Please, I want you to tell as many girls that are going to see this that the guy that calls himself Yangy is a rapist and they should beware of him.”

The revelation of the lady prompted other supposed victims to come out and narrate their experiences with Yangy to Angie.

Another victim in a direct message to Angie stated, “I was 14 at the time and he lied to me that he was 17. He manipulated me thinking that we were in a serious relationship and forced his way on me the day I went over to see him. I told him to stop severally cause it hurt as I was a virgin but he didn’t stop. So he isn’t just a rapist but a paedophile.”

Other supposed victims also released their WhatsApp conversations and voice recordings, where he allegedly admitted to raping them.

A Twitter user, Ella Uzama, who stated that she would have been a victim, tweeted how she allegedly escaped Yangy’s antics.

She tweeted, “Lol, I remember putting up ‘I need a job ‘on my story in 100lvl and this guy met me after Sabbath and said he had a job, and the job was ‘I’ll follow him to clubs and he’ll hook me with men and then give him his cut after I sleep with them. He’s useless.”

Another Twitter user, @Phcanonymous, accused Yangy of visiting his victims’ houses with hoodlums and threatening them to recant on their accusations and delete their evidence.

Reacting to the allegations, Yangy on his Twitter handle, @yangy_adolph, said he was not involved in any of the alleged incidents, adding that he would contact the relevant authorities over the allegation.

He tweeted, “Ordinarily, I would have ignored the rumour peddling around but for posterity sake, let me categorically say that I have no involvement in the alleged rape.

“As we all know, rape is a serious offense in the world and is something that no one can condone. I strongly stand against rape in all entirety. However, I would inform the relevant authorities concerning this allegation for my reputation.”

A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos heard on Thursday that in 2015, a former Petroleum Resources Minister Diezani Alison-Madueke ordered the removal of $70 million from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in 12 padlocked bags.

A former NNPC Group General Manager told Justice Muslim Hassan that he delivered the bags to an Abuja-based banker on Mrs. Alison-Madueke’s instructions.

He testified that he and others “had a command-and-obey relationship and also took an oath of office to obey directives and authority”.

The former GGM appeared as a prosecution witness in the trial of a former Executive Director of a top commercial bank, Dauda Lawal.

Lawal is being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for alleged money laundering of N928,000,000

The commission accused him of handling $25 million out of $153 million, which the former minister allegedly doled out to influence the 2015 general elections.

The trial opened on Thursday with the ex-NNPC GGM appearing as the first prosecution witness.

Led in evidence by EFCC Prosecutor Rotimi Oyedepo, the witness narrated how he delivered the cash-laden bags to the Abuja banker, identified simply as Charles, in the front of Dume Supermarket in Abuja.

The witness said: “My lord, as I can remember, shortly before the 2015 elections, it was the norm for heads of subsidiaries (of the NNPC) to be invited for an undisclosed briefing of activities of their departments to the minister.

“At the end of such briefings, the then Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Alison-Madueke, gave me a GSM number in respect of one Charles, whom I had never met, with a clear instruction that I should convey 12 padlocked bags to the said Charles.

“My lord, the source, the content, and the purpose of the bags were not disclosed to me.

“Thereafter, I called the said Charles, who equally confirmed to me that he had been briefed about the message. I delivered the bags to Charles.

“Much later, my lord, the EFCC invited me for interrogation on the issue and I made a statement to that effect.

“Charles equally confirmed at the EFCC that he received the 12 padlocked bags and the bags contained $70 million.”

Under cross-examination by the defense counsel, Patrick Ikwueto (SAN), the witness said he had never met Lawal before.

Justice Hassan adjourned till July 21, 22, and 23 for the continuation of trial.

The pan-Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere has condemned the decision of the Federal Government that schools should remain closed in the country until further notice.

The group called on the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (red.), to sack the minister of education for planning to ground education for a year.

The Secretary-General of the association, Bashorun Sehinde Arogbofa, said the Federal Government should have allowed pupils to resume and find means of protecting them against coronavirus disease.

He said, “Adamu Adamu should be sacked, he cannot bring our school system back to the stone age. They had about six months to plan for these children what did the Federal Government do?

“It means the two of them (Adamu and the Minister of State for Education) don’t know what they are doing, so they should go. I think the two ministers in the ministry should go. Why would one say the pupils should resume taking their paper in August and the other minister would come and reverse the order?”

The embattled Acting Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, was on Wednesday confronted with more allegations.

The Justice Ayo Salami-led Presidential panel asked him to account for 380 houses and seven vessels loaded with crude oil.

The probe panel also grilled on him on the disposal of assets worth N37 billion.

Magu is being grilled, following allegations raised against him by Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami(SAN).

The panel started quizzing Magu on Monday after his arrest by detectives in Abuja. On Tuesday, he was grilled on cash discrepancies said to be N539 billion realized from the sale of seized assets and N504 billion declared by the commission.

Both issues are part of the over 20 allegations leveled against the anti-graft agency chairman by the AGF.

It was also gathered, on Wednesday, that on the ground floor of the Federal Criminal Investigation Department, FCID, Area 10, Abuja, where the EFCC boss is being held, his family members are allowed to visit him.

A Presidency source had said, on Tuesday, that the probe was an affirmation that nobody under the present administration was above scrutiny.

The source had also explained that the interrogation of the anti-graft boss was being done to give him the opportunity to clear himself of the weighty allegations.

It was gathered that Magu was brought to the venue at about 11:14 am from the Force Criminal Investigation Department, FCID, building where he had been held since Monday. He was also joined by his lawyer at the panel for interrogation.
