AGF to review Shasore’s case
The office of the Attorney-General of the Federation has requested a review of the alleged $200m bribe case against a former Attorney-General of Lagos State, Olasupo Shasore.
This, was according to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, on Friday.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the EFCC counsel, Mr Bala Sanga (SAN), informed an Ikeja Special Offences Court that there was a request from the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation, for a review of the case.
Sanga said the request for review was due to the recent judgment of a United Kingdom Court.
He said the Federal Government of Nigeria had won its case against Process & Industrial Developments Ltd. in the UK court in October.
According to him: “The judgment was delivered after five years of legal fireworks which was finally given in favour of Nigeria, as the court quashed the 11 billion dollars arbitration award in favour of P&ID.
“As a result of the judgement of the London Court, which I can call the ‘mother case,’ the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation has recalled all documents for a comprehensive review and we have a letter to that effect.
“We, therefore, request for an adjournment as the prosecution awaits the outcome of the review.”
There was no objection raised by the lead defence counsel, Mr Chijioke Okoli (SAN).
Justice Mojisola Dada adjourned the case until Jan. 24, 2024, for further report.
Shasore served as the Attorney-General of Lagos State and the Commissioner for Justice during the tenure of Babatunde Fashola as the governor.
The embattled senior lawyer is standing trial on a two-count charge bordering on alleged bribery of public officers, preferred against him by the EFCC.
He had pleaded not guilty, following his arraignment on Oct. 21, 2022.
EFCC alleged that Shasore corruptly gave the sum of 100,000 dollars to one Olufolakemi Adelore, the Director Legal, Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources.
The money was alleged to be given on account of the role she played in the arbitration proceedings instituted by Process and Industrial Developments Ltd. against the ministry.
It was also alleged that the defendant corruptly gave the sum of 100,000 dollars to one Ikechukwu Oguine, Secretary to the Cooperation and Coordinator.
The money was also alleged to have been given on account of the role he played in the arbitral proceedings instituted by P&ID against the ministry.
According to the prosecution, the alleged offences contravene Section 9(1) (a) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act 2000.
Amid Isreal DMW’s marital saga, Davido shares a cryptic message about the value of words
Davido, the music star, has responded to the marital drama involving his logistics manager, Isreal DMW.
Prior reports from NewsNow revealed that Isreal had opened up about his marital crisis, recounting how he met his wife, elevated her status, and provided for her and her family.
Regrettably, their marriage didn’t last long as the situation deteriorated when his wife tried to change him to meet her standards and often shamed him for being broke.
Ultimately, she left the marriage and went to live with a friend in Abuja, whom Isreal labeled as a prost!tute. Isreal denied allegations of physically assaulting her, called out his mother-in-law, and directed curses at Sheila.
In another post, he disclosed his struggle with depression but expressed gratitude for Davido, who consistently checked on him.
In what appears to be a response, Davido posted on his Twitter page, emphasizing the importance of speaking only when necessary because words hold significant value.
“Speak when necessary. The words carry more value then”.
Israel and Sheila got married on Thursday, October 20, 2022, in a traditional ceremony held in Benin City, followed by their white wedding two days later.
Less than a year after their lavish wedding, the couple parted ways after NewsNow, a controversial Instagram blogger, revealed details about their separation.
The blog alleged that the 02 performing artist and his wife ended their marriage due to domestic violence allegations, and Sheila returned her bride price.
The couple later confirmed the news after Sheila publicly criticized the 002 performing artist for sharing a photo of them from their traditional marriage and referring to her as his wife.

“Reactions to Alleged Arrival of Child by Actress Eriata Ese Despite Her Preaching”
Allegations have emerged claiming that Nollywood actress Eriata Ese has given birth to a child with a colleague’s husband.
Reports circulating online indicate that the former Big Brother Naija housemate and her Nigerian-born Canadian partner have become parents to a son.
Per allegations made by Instagram blogger, Cutie Juls, the man in question is said to be her colleague’s estranged husband, whom she reportedly stole from her. According to the blog, Eriata allegedly caused the breakdown of her colleague’s marriage before welcoming a son with him.
The blog also claimed that Eriata left her single boyfriend for the married Onyeka in 2017, and they have been together since.
The news has sparked widespread discussion, particularly given the actress’s penchant for sharing religious messages and quotes.
Mz Chimamaka expressed disbelief, “I can’t believe it’s another woman’s husband. She preaches against it. They said partner, not another woman’s husband.”
Omah commented, “The crazy thing is that the wife is actually gorgeous, like a very fine lady. You won’t even know that she has two kids.”
Eloho remarked, “After all that she preaches. Omo this caption better be a lie, Sha.”

She also lamented the challenges of being a public figure and the plethora of negative experiences she encounters, acknowledging that there are more drawbacks than benefits to being a celebrity.
The actress expressed regret over being a public figure, indicating the incessant negativity and the bother from individuals attempting to undermine them over issues they are unaware of.
