The Presidency has described as fiction, a claim by former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, that President Muhammadu Buhari was banned from entering the United States of America for 15 years on account of religious considerations.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in a statement was reacting to Atiku’s interview published yesterday in a national daily.

The former vice president, while responding to a question on his inability to visit the United States for many years due to allegations that border on sharp practices, was quoted to have said that Buhari before becoming the president could not enter America on account of religious considerations for about 15 years.

The ex-VP was also quoted as saying :  “It is the sole prerogative of America to determine who they want in their country or not…

“I’m not running away from America. I applied, but wasn’t issued a visa,” he said, adding that he would be granted access just as it was done to Buhari after  becoming the president.

According to the statement from the Presidency, “This fictive concoction being passed off as truth is mindboggling, coming from a former Number Two man of Nigeria, who should know the truth. 

“At no time was President Buhari, as a private person, ever forbidden from entering any country in the world. Rather, the rest of the world has always held Muhammadu Buhari as a man of sterling qualities, strong on integrity, transparency and accountability. The same testimony is still borne of the Nigerian president by many world leaders today.”

The Presidency described as curious that rather than answer the question directly on why he has not visited the US for the past 10 years, the former VP chose to beg the question and say things that only exist in his imagination.


“It is curious that former VP Abubakar had been asked why he had not visited America for over a decade, something that had been a stubborn fact dogging his footsteps. 

“Instead of answering directly, he begged the question, saying Buhari also had been disallowed from entering the same country for 15 years, before becoming President.

“We hereby make it resoundingly clear that what the former vice president said only exists in the realm of his imagination. If he has issues to settle with American authorities, he should do so, rather than clutch at a straw,” the statement read.
 
Also reacting to the ex-VP’s attack on the President, a group, the Buhari Media Support Group described Atiku’s claims as baseless and unfounded.

In a statement by the chairman of the group, Austin Braimoh, the group said it was shocked by Atiku’s curious and spurious allegations, explaining that there was no time Buhari was ever banned from entering the US or any Western country because of any alleged or perceived extreme religious views.

According to the BMSG, “the former vice president appears to have his facts or information mixed up somewhere,” and that “he must be confusing someone else with Buhari.”

The group said Buhari had enjoyed and continues to enjoy enormous international goodwill, explaining that he had no reason being in the United States after he finished from the War College. Since then, it was in 2016 that he was invited to deliver a lecture at the Woodrow Wilson Center in the United States. He was also at the Chatam House in London,”  it added.

According to the statement, Buhari couldn’t have visited a country where he was officially banned because of any so-called extreme religious views. It advised Atiku to publish such record if he had any.

No fewer than 13 persons were killed and 53 others injured in twin bomb explosions at Biu, a town in Borno State.

Two female bombers, Sunday Sun gathered, detonated explosives at Biu, Borno third largest city yesterday at about 11:40am.

“One of the bombers detonated IED strapped to her body within Biu Main market, while the other one detonated outside the market square. So far, a total of 13 persons excluding the two suicide bombers, have been confirmed killed in the two explosions. While 53 others sustained varying degrees of injuries,” Police Public Relations Officer, Victor Isuku said in a statement. He disclosed that the police had deployed patrol teams and cops of the Explosives Ordinance Department (EOD) to the area.

“The corpses and the injured persons have been evacuated to General Hospital Biu. Meanwhile, normalcy has been restored in the area,” the police spokesman said.

Biu is located in the southern part of Borno, about 187 kilometres to Maiduguri, Borno capital. It has experienced relative peace until the Saturday’s market bombing. The last bomb explosion in the area occurred in May 2016.

Boko Haram has stepped up attacks in recent weeks despite claims by the military and government that the end was in sight for the insurgents. A daring attack by Boko Haram on a military base at Magumeri last week led to the death of three soldiers and two civilians though residents said the casualties could be higher than what the military disclosed.

  In Bayelsa State, the Police Command is probing the killing of the Chairman of Cattle Breeders Association, Bayelsa State chapter, Alhaji Jubril Abdulkarim and three of his boys by gunmen in an attack yesterday.

 According to investigations, the slain cow dealer who was popularly known as Alhaji  Abdulkarim was said to have been attacked at his abattoir located at the grazing area donated by the Bayelsa State Government along Bayelsa Palm Road.

Eye-witnesses said Jubril who was the biggest supplier of cows in Bayelsa and his boys were sitting under a tree and chatting when the gunmen struck.

 In the ensuing pandemonium, the gunmen also gunned down three of Jubril’s boys before escaping in a Black Mazda car they came with.

“The gunmen invaded the place this afternoon and shot him. He is a household name because he is the biggest supplier of cows in Bayelsa. The gunmen also killed three of his boys before they escaped. It is a sad development. We are calling on the police to thoroughly investigate this incident and bring those involved to book,” an eye-witness said.

 The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Asinim Butwats, who confirmed the incident, said that the police were on top on the situation.

 Butwats who said the police were investigating reports of crisis within the association assured that they would ensure the culprits were caught.

“On 2 November, 2017, at about 1230hrs, three unknown gunmen in a Black Mazda 323 car, registration number yet unknown, went to Azikoro Road by Winners U turn, Yenagoa, where one Alhaji Jibril Abdulkarim, the Chairman Cattle Breeders Association, Bayelsa State Branch, was discussing with three others, shot at them on their heads and drove off to unknown destination. 


 
“Policemen were immediately deployed for possible arrest. The scene was visited by the Police.

Three of the victims one Abiso Abba, Yunusa surname unknown and the third name unknown died at the spot, while Alhaji Jibril Abdulkarim was rushed to the hospital for medical attention where he later died.

There is suspicion of internal wrangling and strife within the association. Police and other security agencies are working on a promising lead for possible arrest of the suspects. Corpses of the victims have been deposited at the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa for autopsy. All units have been alerted and efforts are on going to arrest the fleeing suspects”

Meanwhile in another incident, gunmen attacked two policemen at Okarki, a border community between Rivers and Bayelsa states.

Sunday Sun gathered that the two policemen were attacked with machetes and their rifles were stolen. The policemen were said to have been taken to the hospital for medical care.

Budding but controversial actress, Omalicha Elom is at it again. An indigene of Ebonyi State, in this chat with Entertainer Elom bares it all on challenges of being a green horn in Nollywood and the sleaze in the motion picture industry. The beautiful actress also talks about her debut movie production effort among other issues.

What is the new project you are working on?

I am about to produce my debut movie enitled Marriage Police.  It is the story of what is going on in different homes in our present world; I am talking about domestic violence and abusive marriages among others. Every man wants a peaceful home. After seeing my movie, people are going to applaud me. it is didactic; a tragic-comedy and quite interesting.

Is this your personal story?

Yes! I encountered something similar in my first relationship. However, it is becoming a norm. I have only dated two guys all my life. My first boyfriend was so jealous and obsessive nobody could say ‘hi’ to me. He chased away all my friends; male and female. He caused more harm to me than good. Fortunately, the relationship didn’t last; we had to part ways.

How did he cope after you broke up with him?

It was a serious issue but with prayer and fasting, I overcame him and his troubles.

Don’t you think society would frown at you for doing a movie on marriage while you are still single?

It doesn’t matter. Anybody can talk about that with little knowledge because it has become a big issue in our society. By January it should be out for all to see and enjoy.

You recently granted an interview where you were quoted saying you don’t mind asking men for sex, how true is that?

I never said such, the reporter quoted me out of context. How can I boldly ask a guy out or even ask for sex when I am an African. That is not part of our culture? I only said I had only dated two guys in my life and I am presently single and not in any relationship. I don’t know where the reporter got that from. If I really like a guy, I can only imagine him in my head as my boyfriend but I can’t walk up to him to ask for sex. No way! I am very romantic but not crazy.

People say oral sex is dirty, what do you think about that?

Well, I don’t know about other people’s opinions but I don’t like it at all.

And what if you get married and your husband insists he wants it, will you succumb?

Well, the Bible says women should be submissive to their husbands. So, if I get married and my husband wants oral sex, I will give it to him so I can make heaven (laughter). 

What if he demands for anal sex?

I can’t do that at all. In fact, I know my husband can’t be crazy enough to ask me for anal sex. 

Can you forgive a cheating partner?

No, not ever! Because once I am in a relationship, I stay very loyal and faithful. So, I would not even look back if my lover should cheat on me, be it my husband or boyfriend. Once you have me, let it be me forever until we part ways. Don’t even try to cheat on me. They say men are polygamous in nature but it is not right. Before a woman would cheat, something deep must have happened.

It seems female producers are rapidly taking over the movie industry, what is really going on?

I think it is becoming a woman’s world. The women are out there to take over and make more money. For the up-and-coming actresses that also venture into movie productions, I think they do it because they are tired of constant sexual harassments by producers. Producers are always asking for sex or money from up-and-coming actresses.

Are you a victim of sexual harassment?
 
Yes! I joined AGN in 2011. There was this audition I went for and the producer asked me to seduce him and I was acting it with all my heart not knowing he had ulterior motives. It was when he grabbed my boobs  I realised he wanted to get fresh with me and I was shocked! I cautioned him and stormed out of his office. After that I really felt discouraged but I didn’t give up. I told my mum and family members and they gave me lots of moral support.

Don’t you think that sometimes, desperate actresses seduce or prompt producers to ask for sex?

It’s very true. Some of them feel their body can answer all things. To be honest, some of these so-called Asaba big girls started these paying-for-movie-roles and sex-for-roles. They feel they have it all and want to appear in movies either by hook or crook. In Asaba, some girls give producers between N100,000 and N200,000 just to be appear in one or two scenes.

So, you would agree that there are lots of prostituting actresses in the new Nollywood?

Yes there are. It is quite painful and annoying. However, it is also in other places, in every area of human endeavour, be it banking, Oil & Gas and whatever.

How spiritual are you?

I am very spiritual. I don’t joke with Church. I always pay my tithes. Even when someone dashes me money I pay my tithe from it. I make sure I help the less privileged as often as I can. I fast and pray when need be. I might be crazy but I really love God and everything that concerns Him.

So, what is your take on tithing?

I pay my tithe all the time and I sow seed. That is how God keeps blessing me. It is in the bible, I can’t remember the Bible verse but there.

Are you against Daddy Freeze’s interpretation of that?

Firstly, I don’t know who Daddy Freeze is and I don’t care to know. All I know is that people should pay their tithes and allow God to bless them abundantly.
