PRESIDENT TRUMP SPITS FIRE: SAYS DON'T PUSH ME.
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. As I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power." - President Donald John Trump. ICHEOKU says the Michelin Tire midget at Pyongyang is definitely courting trouble and messing with the wrong man. He probably thinks Barack Obama the redline president is still in office; but unbeknownst to him there is a new sheriff in town and his name is Donald John Trump and he does not mess around. Hopefully China can rein in the little man before he commits mass suicide with his North Korean people.

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER
"When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself. So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that." - Senator Charles Schumer, Senior Senator from the State of New York and Democratic Minority Leader in the Senate. ICHEOKU says the statement spoke volume and it spoke for itself. Finally it seems the Democrats have finally turned the corner and are now ready to face up to their abysmal performance in the last presidential election by acknowledging that the American people indeed choose Trump over their Hillary Clinton. Thankfully, they will also now rest their "Russians Did It" cockamamie and find a message they can present to the people and for the good of the country.. Time to move the process forward is now as American people did not buy into the crap of a Russian collusion which they tried unsuccessfully to sell to them.

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS McGREGOR

ICHEOKU says August 26 is the day history will be made as two of the world's most interesting athletes square off in the ring. Boxing champion Floyd MayWeather and mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor, will fight on August 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada. ICHEOKU says not in a position yet to place bet on who will win the fight. Salute


BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY

BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY
ICHEOKU says the time has come and the time is now for the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra to be allowed to choose their self governance and exit from Nigeria going forward.. A referendum on the future of Biafra is a legitimate demand of the people and it is their right to so do. The people of the Nation of Biafra want to of their own way because of the hostilities from other member nations of Nigeria. Let the United Nations order a referendum and let the people decide in their own Biafraexit.

PDJT ISSUES VERDICT ON ISLAMIST TERRORISTS


"There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it. Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God; they worship death. If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen and what will be the end result. Terrorism's devastation of life will continue to spread, peaceful societies will become engulfed by violence, and the futures of many generations will be sadly squandered. If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing, then not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God." - President Donald John Trump.


BBOB: BRING BACK OUR BIAFRA

ICHEOKU says it is worth fighting for, self determination and it is not a crime for a people to aspire for self governance. Indigenous Peoples of Biafra are marching forward and hopefully they will soon get to the promised land. Viva Biafra.
#BringBackOurBiafra.

WHAT REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE - STEVE JOBS

“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me. God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth. Memories precipitated by love is the only true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on. The most expensive bed in the world is the sick bed. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear sickness for you. Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat yourself well. Cherish others.” - SJ

EVIL CANNOT BE TRULY DESTROYED.

A $170,000 DOLLAR WRIST-WATCH FOR A NIGERIAN ARMY MAJOR'S WIFE?

Our beef, writing this commentary is that the "culprit" here, is an ordinary army major's wife. Icheoku asks, how much is her husband's salary or is he a trust-fund child to afford such superlative luxury? How did he come about such a huge amount of money to splash on just a wrist-watch? A whopping $170,000.00 USD for a wrist-watch? That is incredulous as it is scandalous, and it is by a Nigeria army major? However the wrist-watch is not the most expensive wrist-watch ever made, sold and bought; no, as the black diamond-clustered CHOPARD, top left, retails for $1,130,620.00 USD! But for a petty army major's wife to be able to afford such a watch, that is the lead-story here!

Were she Bill Gates wife, Aliko Dangote's wife, Carlos Slim's wife or any of the harems of a Middle Eastern Sheik, Icheoku will not give a damn as we do not begrudge riches. We are a capitalist bunch who strongly believe that such off-the-chart ornamental-valuables, should be made and bought by some people of means. But for an ordinary major in the Nigeria army to afford this piece of luxury, that calls for somebody's head on a platter! It is ridiculously pathetic that such is happening in a Nigeria, where so many people go to sleep every night without food in their stomachs. This is a glaring example of an oasis of extreme extravagance surrounded by abject poverty and want where bread is a luxury for most families. The near state of hopelessness in Nigeria was caused by the likes of this Major Mustapha and yet he finds the temerity to display his ill-gotten wealth in this blingy form? Icheoku says it is shameful and encourages that business man whoever he is, to pawn away the wristwatch and use the proceeds for some charitable work of mercy. He should utilize the proceeds for something more important than an army major's wife egotistic wrist; after-all, it came out of the purse of Nigeria, a product of corruption.

Icheoku says, the EFCC should not involve itself in this private and personal family-friends matter. Why should the government agency be used by the Mustaphas' for privately investigating what happened to their little piece of bling-bling? Who cares if a family-friend breached the trust of a very corrupt woman-owner of a wrist-watch who is married to another corrupt despotic-enforcer? The EFCC should not have arrested the Lagos based business magnate and philanthropist over his alleged involvement in the controversial wristwatch? According to the story, the wristwatch valued at US $170,000.00 (N23.4m) allegedly got missing since 2005 after the major’s wife, Hadjia Hafsat Al- Mustapha reportedly gave it to the business man said to be a family friend for repairs. The business man was to help her replace the dead battery and fatigued strap (band) during his then upcoming overseas trip. But unfortunately, according to the businessman, the wristwatch alongside other of his valuables were stolen at the Police Force Headquarters in Abuja during a visit, which burglary was immediately incidented with the police.
The wristwatch's value has been described as ridiculous by one official who, like Icheoku, could not understand the mindset of this army major splashing a whopping $170,000 on his wife's wristwatch? Moreover, how did he or she come about such a large sum of money for such a foolery? In the words of the official, “You mean somebody is wearing a wristwatch that cost as much as that?, that is madness."
Because of the ridiculousness of this Nigerian army major's expenditure on a wrist-watch, Icheoku went to town to research costs of wrist-watches. Our findings however shows that there are very expensive wrist-watches out there; but the question remains, how was this army major able to afford this piece of jewelry? From our investigation, there are some ladies' wrist-watches dripping with jewels which cost a fortune. From premier Swiss watchmakers come such fine masterpieces such as Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, Girard-Perregaux etc. Chopard pictured above, at $1,130,620.00 is about the most expensive wrist-watch presently available. There is also the Ulysse Nardin at $408,000.00; Vacheron Constant at $340,000.00; Girard Perreguax at $280,000.00; Patek Philippe at $240,000.00 and so many other timepieces for the well healed of the society!

According to one critic, such wrist-watch under advisement here is "a mere luxury that has no soul." They are otherwise called "complications found at the priciest levels! Like many of such world's most expensive watches they are produced in severely limited quantities--including infinitesimal editions of one sometimes--and frequently have buyers lined up long before they're finished, often at rates of just a few per year. However in 1999 the most expensive watch ever sold, a 1933 gold Patek Phillipe with 24 complications, was auctioned off at Sotheby's for $11 million dollars USD!

Icheoku says, this exposes once again the rot the northern men of power has driven Nigeria into. If an ordinary army major's wife from the north could afford a $170,000.00 USD wrist-watch, can you imagine what the northern generals' wives themselves own? Or better still, try to fathom what wealth their men of power have personally siphoned from the southern oil wells? It is a pity that the south has left them have their way and for so long; but the EFCC must butt out and leave the Lagos business man alone to enjoy his share of the national cake of Nigeria, courtesy of a major's wife?

Man Accuses EFCC Of Witch-hunting Over Wrist Watch

By Rafiu Ajakaye, Snr. Reporter, Lagos

Olumide Wole Madariola, a businessman, has accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of witch-hunting and harassing him over a stolen wristwatch owned by Hajiah Al-Mustapha, wife of former Chief Security Officer to late Sanni Abacha.

Madariola said Hajiah Hafsatu Al Mustapha had given him the wristwatch to help her repair abroad in 2005 and that while at the Force Headquarters, Abuja where he went to visit a friend, the driver of the cab he hired ran up stair to tell him that the windscreen of his car was broken and the wristwatch and other valuables were stolen in the process.

The matter was reported to police and report issued on the matter.

EFCC is said to have ordered Madariola to pay the woman N16 million for her missing wristwatch in the custody of Madariola.

Hajia Al-Mustapha, who is alleged to be a close friend of Waziri Farida, the EFCC chairman, went to the commission in 2008 to help her recover the wristwatch which she claimed is worth N16 million.

On invitation of EFCC early this year, Madariola agreed to purchase the wristwatch and asked that he be given the model and type of the commodity, a request Waziri reportedly turned down and asked that Madariola pay the N16 million or be detained.

Madariola refused to pay the N16 million resulting in the EFCC allegedly detaining him for five days. On his release on self-recognition, Madariola has now filed a suit against EFCC in an Abuja High Court to refrain the agency from continuous harassment.

But the EFCC spokesman, Femi Babafemi, said the claims were untrue.

His words: "He is a blackmailer, and no amount of blackmail can stop the EFCC from doing its job. I know about the story very well; a lot of things have been attributed to me concerning the issue even though have never spoken to anybody on it. I think the question we should ask is that if he we have a petition should we not investigate it?"

"EFCC said if I don't pay the money I would be man hunted and forced to pay it. I am not ready to pay the money because I work for every of my kobo.

"The wristwatch I collected isn't worth that amount; it cannot even be up to $1000. This is subtle fraud on the part of the woman and EFCC.

"When did EFCC turn to wristwatch recovery agency? Let them give me the case of the wristwatch and I'll go and buy another one. Why is EFCC so interested in my paying N16 million? There is more to this," Madariola told Saturday Independent.

I also totally agree that it doesn't seem hardly more than $1000.
