I RIDE FOR THE BRAND - REX TILLERSON

"My word is my bond. I ride for the brand. Once I am committed, I am in it for the long haul." - Rex Tillerson, US Secretary of State on loyalty.


ICHEOKU says a personification of candor and honor. Nice.


THE RUSSIAN COLLUSION: DEALT A FATAL BLOW.


"There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is also no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election." - Rod Rosenstein, Deputy Attorney General of the United States of America.

ICHEOKU says this determination, for every intent and purpose, now lays to rest the "Collusion with the Russians" hogwash; as nobody can be guilty of an offense which requires awareness to ground when he or she is not aware of it. Collusion is a conspiracy and requires a proactive participation coupled with a guilty knowledge to bring about the purpose of the conspiracy. Therefore, when will the Special Counsel address the nation and tell Americans that there is no there, there, in the Russian Collusion investigation and save America further bleeding both in resources, time and unity. Enough of the sore loser antics of the Democratic Party which does not know how to take a loss and learn to work to fix what went wrong, instead of continuously pointing a finger at a mirage that is the Russian Collusion, in its bid to find something to blame for its ineptitude that led to the epochal loss of November 8th, 2016.

MORGAN TSVANGIRAI: DEAD AT 65


ICHEOKU says Uncle Robert Mugabe finaly outlived him; admitted he put up a good fight trying to be president of Zimbabwe but to no avail. He was 65 years old and died of colon cancer. May his soul now rest. Adieu Morgan.

WINTER OLYMPICS PYEONGCHANG 2018,

ICHEOKU says South Korea is hosting the world of Winter Olympics 2018. A stellar preparation and spectacular performances so far. Congratulations to the host country and the gathered athletes who are gathered in Pyeongchang South Korea for the event.

PERCHED AND REVVING TO ITS ALIENS RENDEZVOUS.

ICHEOKU says science and technology are awesome. They make the seemingly impossible, possible. Elon Musk's personal Tesla Roadster enroute to Mars atmospheric orbit. Congratulations to Elon Musk and his SpaceX and Tesla teams.


OBAMA: WHAT DID HE KNOW.


ICHEOKU says what did former President Barack Hussein Obama know and when did he know it. America people must demand of their leaders a full disclosure and full accountability in the unfolding FBI released memo scandal. Only by getting to the bottom of the matter will American people regain their confidence in their law enforcement agencies.


FBI MEMO SCANDAL: OBAMA WAS IN THE LOOP


"POTUS WANTS TO KNOW EVERYTHING WE ARE DOING." - Lisa Page to boyfriend Peter Strzok, two FBI officials.


ICHEOKU says the POTUS then was President Barack Hussein Obama, who had previously denied and lied to the American people that he does not dabble into any FBI's investigative matter. Really?


THE MEMO: THE CRITICAL AND CRUCIAL POINTS.


Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe admitted that no surveillance warrant would have been sought from the FISA court without the Michael Steele's dossier information. Michael Steele was engaged by Hillary Clinton's campaign and Fusion GPS to obtain dirt information on then candidate Donald John Trump which subsequently produced the infamous Steele's dossier. This is the but-for test: but for the dossier alleging collusion, there would not have been a Mueller's Russian investigation.


Michael Steele admitted to then Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr that he was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not, being president. Bruce Ohr's wife was also then employed by the same Fusion GPS which hired Michael Steele to help it with digging up dirt on Trump. But Bruce Ohr kept this critical bias information and the fact that his own wife was also employed in the illicit dirty job activities by the same Fusion GPS out of the Justice department application to the FISA court to obtain a surveillance warrant that led up to the Russian probe. The dossier was a bogus hatchet job manufactured to just smear and nail Trump.


ICHEOKU says the web of conspiracy could not be any clearer: first you have a desperate Michael Steele who is out to stop the election of Donald Trump at all cost and by all and every means necessary. Then you have interest of financial gains through employment, which probably persuaded the hiding of the vital information from the FISA court. The information could have negated the issuance of the warrant and without which the court might have otherwise declined its issuance. Yet somebody is saying what; that the Russian Investigation is not a big ruse or as the president would say a political WITCH hunt.

POPE CONDEMNS FAKE NEWS (CNN): SEES WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP

POPE CONDEMNS CNN: AGREES WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP

ICHEOKU says President Donald John Trump, the man who saw tomorrow, has a new ally. Pope Francis has finally seen the light on what the president has been talking about for nearly two years now. The Holy See has now come to appreciate what PDJT went through in the hands of purveyors of Fake News, which unfortunately is continuing till today. The pope called them evil and compared them to the Biblical garden of Eden's serpent, which fed Eve with Fake News about what will happen if she and Adam ate of the forbidden fruit. ICHEOKU commends the pope for finally turning around the corner. Well done papa for calling out the likes of CNN and co. Bravo.

IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!

IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!
ICHEOKU says congratulations to President Donald John Trump for successfully steering America's ship of States for a full year. What the naysayers said will not happen is a reality which they are finding extremely difficult to live with. But their preferences notwithstanding, Make America Great Again is on course and nobody will torpedo it. Once again, congratulations to the leader of Team MAGA on the anniversary of his being sworn in as the 45th POTUS.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IN EXCELLENT HEALTH

PRESIDENT TRUMP IN EXCELLENT HEALTH.

ICHEOKU says he submitted himself to the Walter Reed National hospital for a three and half hours medical examination which included his requested, but not required, mental acuity test. The president passed excellently well and aced his IQ test 30/30. ICHEOKU says yet another nail on the coffin of the fake book Fire and Fury hatchet job which had claimed unfounded story about the president's mental health. But will the possessed far left media hordes now take their chill pill and let the president be? Your guess is as good as ICHEOKU's. ICHEOKU says congratulations President Donald John Trump for once again shaming your traducers. It is now all the way live to 2020 and a second term assured victory.


ICHEOKU'S MAN OF THE YEAR 2017: PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP

ICHEOKU says following an examination of so many nominated individuals, we have determined that this year 2017's man of the year is President Donald John Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America. He came into office shooting on both hips and as the year draws to an end, his both guns are still firing and smoking. For standing up to the world and starring down American detractors and being the cheerleader and champion in chief of America, the leader of Team Make America Great Again has earned ICHEOKU's man of the year award 2017. Congratulations to President Donald John Trump.

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT
ICHEOKU says a wisdom of Solomon come to judgment; it is about time the child is given to the rightful mother. Salute to the courage of President Donald John Trump.

PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE ARE ENGAGED: HURRAY!

ICHEOKU says they look nice together and hopefully the crazy media and their paparazzi hordes will let them be and not force them into a life of misery or accidentally run them off the cliff. Lady Di's tragic experience is still painfully fresh till this day and no one, not ICHEOKU, wants to relive or experience such awfulness again, NEVER again. May God protect and bless the duo as they take their baby steps into the journey of of so many unknown absurdities called marriage. All the best Harry and Meghan.


AMERICA STRONG!

"Together with our allies, America's warriors are prepared to defend our nation using the full range of our unmatched capabilities. No one — no dictator, no regime and no nation — should underestimate, ever, American resolve."


RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE FOUND!

RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE EMERGES!

ICHEOKU says Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton was caught pants down colluding with the Russians and she has been trying so hard to pull the wool over the eyes of American people over whodunnit. What a lying, contriving, manipulative woman who lies so easily that you wonder whether truth actually exists in her lexicon. Pitiful.

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY HILLARY CLINTON

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY CLINTON

ICHEOKU says finally the circle is about being completed and American people and the world at large will come to know who in fact did the collusion. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Congress paid Fusion GPS to produce the fake Russian dossier which former CIA chief James Clapper said was the basis for the Trump investigation. Yet, the investigation is still ongoing, despite the now established fact that the basis of it was a manufactured phony. But hey, we shall see.


ICHEOKU says still wondering WHAT HAPPENED and the reason 33,000 emails were deleted and bleach washed? Hopefully American people will soon confirm their suspicion that those shouting themselves hoax with Russian Collusion might indeed be the ones who actually colluded with the Russians. So much for the Russian Reset button. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton, simply too crooked.


GLAD TO BE CARRIED TO FULL TERM.

GRATEFUL TO BE CARRIED FULL TERM

ICHEOKU says another lucky one that survived the abortionist's pincers from the over 360,000 unlucky ones that get flushed out each year. May God help us all have a better resolution about unwanted pregnancies.


JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.

JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.
ICHEOKU says from being disrespectful to the flag to being unappreciative of the services of the military to overall being anti America; NFL players must learn to check their political activism outside the stadiums. They must not kneel on our dime. ICHEOKU supports the president 1000% on this and hereby calls on every player to respect the sensibilities of the many differently opined fans who paid to watch a game and not to be made mad by their personal political agenda.

IPOB: NOT A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION - USA


“The United States Government is strongly committed to Nigeria’s unity. Important political and economic issues affecting the Nigerian people, such as the allocation of resources, are worthwhile topics for respectful debate in a democracy. Within the context of unity, we encourage all Nigerians to support a de-escalation of tensions and peaceful resolution of grievances. The Indigenous People of Biafra is not a terrorist organization under US law.” - Russell Brooks, United States of America.

ROCKET MAN; ON A SUICIDE MISSION.



"The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary. That’s what the United Nations is all about; that’s what the United Nations is for. Let’s see how they do." - PDJT


DONATE TODAY TO HELP REBUILD LIVES!

DONATE TODAY TO HELP REBUILD LIVES!

ICHEOKU says the Red Cross does one heck of a good job going to the assistance of the needy; so in these times of great need, occasioned by so many hurricanes, flooding and earthquake, show that you really care, donate to help the victims rebuild their wrecked lives. Remember that the Almighty rewards a cheerful giver.

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.

North Korea PUT ON NOTICE

NORTH KOREA  PUT ON NOTICE: 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.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

ICHEOKU says once again the diminutive midget of Pyongyang has been advised to heed the resolution of the United Nations firm stand against his continuing provocations; and that the total wiping out of his North Korea is now an option should he force the hands of the United States of American military. In a statement by the Defense Secretary Jim Maddog Mattis over its latest nuclear test, the secretary said “Our commitment among the allies are ironclad. Any threat to the United States or its territories, including Guam, or our allies will be met with a massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming. We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea, but as I said, we have many options to do so.” ICHEOKU says does not really know the joker that guy has, but whatever it is will likely very soon be forced out. The world including ICHEOKU is waiting and watching.

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 go 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 their own Biafraexit.

PDJT ISSUES A 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.

ABUJA BOMB BLAST, A BLAST AIDED BY AND MIRED IN GROSS INCOMPETENCE!

Icheoku says at no other time has the truth been murdered much more by the Nigerian security operatives as was in the press conference addressed by Marilyn Ogar, assistant director public relations of the dreadful Nigerian State Security Services. While addressing a press conference to inform the world on the ongoing investigation into the Abuja independence anniversary celebration bombing, Madam Assistant Director said, "The SSS is a public service and people come here and go out at will. The vehicles used for the bombing were wired for detonation at Charles Okah’s house in Port Harcourt and driven to Abuja."

Icheoku cries holly molly and queries, since when has the Nigerian gestapo state security services shed its cloak and dagger? Since when did the Nigerian SSS become a pub where citizens freely visit for leisure and pleasure or is Icheoku loosing its mind or recollection or mistaken as to the true nature of the very SSS being referenced here? If the SSS is now a public service where people come and go at will, why did it then take Raymond Dokpesi thirteen frigging hours to make up his mind to leave after he was "invited" there, suspected of having a role in the bombing of October 1st 2010 Abuja independence celebration? Anyway previous guests of the Nigerian SSS would attest as to this unfounded claim since they know how truly free they went to the said public service and how they left on their own free will; but like the preaching goes, you shall know the truth and only the truth shall set you free. So Madam Marilyn Ogar, how truthful a witness are you with this statement as to the friendly nature of the business of the Nigeria SSS?
Now to the portion of her statement that Icheoku seriously has issue with, that "the vehicles used for the bombing were wired for detonation at Charles Okah’s house in Port Harcourt and driven to Abuja." Anyone conversant with Nigeria and what obtains therein, including the nature of the roads as well as those annoying security check points alias "road-blocks" which dot every corner of road in Nigeria knows that it will be impracticable for these rag-tag vehicles used in the bombing to have been driven unnoticed from Port Harcourt to Abuja as this woman is now trying to sell to the world. The distance from Port-Harcourt to Abuja is about 416 miles (661km) and at about the usually one security checkpoint per two miles would have roughly yielded about 350 roadblocks between the two cities. Now, how did MEND pull this feat off - driving three bomb rigged vehicles from Port-Harcourt to Abuja undetected, except they had some inside help or possibly some security operatives directing the drive or even drove those vehicles themselves with full police and/or even army escorts. If MEND as alleged could drive two or three bomb laden vehicles into the seat of government in Abuja, then no one is safe in Nigeria including the political high-ups; except that it could not have happened as this Madam Assistant Director is struggling to make the world to believe.
But Icheoku is not buying it and will not let her to successfully pull the wool over the world's eyes with this her account of the route travelled of these bomb vehicles. Except she is shielding some security operatives on their involvement, this investigation should be expanded to include unraveling the logistics of driving these bomb-laden vehicles hitch-free from Port Harcourt into Abuja and how it was successfully pulled off without being detected.
Those five suspects currently being held in custody and soon to be charged to court, reminds Icheoku of the military days when serving prisoners are usually brought before television cameras and paraded as suspects in some politically charged high crimes such as the murder of Pa Alfred Rewane by Abacha goons. But who are these suspects; what do they look like; or are they ghosts without names or facial identifications? Nigeria and the world demand that faces be put on these alleged bombers that they and their families be shamed for their dastardly terrorism against the people of Nigeria and on their national day of celebration. But nay, all the security services have are ghost-bombers who must be hidden from the public and used as scape-goats to solve a politically charged crime. A case especially compounded after the shot at the foot of a gaffe perpetrated by President Goodluck Jonathan whose mouth preceded his brain as he alleged that "he knew the bombers, that they are not MEND but a small group of terrorists residing outside the shores of Nigeria. Icheoku asks Mr. President, if these terrorists resided outside Nigeria, did they telepathically plant and detonate those bombs? If the terrorists resided outside Nigeria, when did they return or visit Nigeria to now be arrested and undergoing investigation? And if they reside outside Nigerians and not Nigerians, why are these Nigerians being arrested or are the arrested not Nigerians?
But as to the veracity of this Madam Assistant Director's statement, Icheoku now takes her address apart to show some missing links. First she failed or refused to disclose the type of materials used in making the bomb, whether it is TNT, plastic explosive, dynamite or even ammonia nitrate aka fertilizer? What type of detonator triggering or timing device that was used to set off the bomb; whether some accelerates were used; whether shrapnel were indicated to maximize injury; and the tonnage or strength of the bomb used. Or was the press conference the normal Nigerian official rattling-off, believing she was talking to some dumb and dumber Nigerian populace or she did not care enough to give some assuring details within a reasonable degree as would not compromise investigation but still capable of throwing some further light on what was going on with their investigation. Icheoku says the science of explosives does not support the assertion that fully wired vehicles rigged with bombs and ready to go-off, were driven through those rough pot-hole filled roads from Port-Harcourt to Abuja without them detonating en-route. We are talking about charges which gallops or uncontrolled acceleration and deceleration could have triggered causing a bang or fireworks ever before they reached Abuja.
The inconsistencies in this press conference raises further curiosity and Icheoku hereby call on the Nigerian authorities to seek help elsewhere as they try to solve the mystery of the independence bombing; as the so-far put forward scenario does not cut it. It is bogus and anyone with some modicum of the physics and chemistry at play here will laugh out loud that some wired for explosion vehicles would be driven for almost 416 miles without any explosive incident on the way. An investigative agency worth its name would trace the source or chemical coding of the explosives, using residue of the bomb and once this signature is established can then trace the makers and their sellers to know who bought what. That way a more realistic chain of forensic investigative methodology could be establish leading to a believable suspect or suspects. But to punt in this fashion expecting the world to believe the outcome of their investigation is rather hubris akin to getting a mathematical question correct but without establishing how you arrived at the answer or conclusion reached. America's Timothy McVeigh's Oklahoma City bombing is a good case in point where good forensics were fully deployed to solve one of the most heinous and callous bombing of a public place by a fringed anti-decency domestic terrorist, Timothy McVeigh. Hopefully these Nigerian scape-goats will soon have their day in court and with a good lawyer will lay to waste this rush to solve a politically charged case of the bombing of a 17 billion Naira independence anniversary celebration in Abuja.

Madam Assistant Director also claimed during her press conference that MEND's ambassador plenipotentiary, Charles Tombra Okah has been identified as the alter-ego of ‘Gbomo Jomo,’ and that he uses that alias to send emails on behalf of MEND including those that warned of the impending blasts which later took off the shine from an ill-advise, thoughtless, self-serving and wasteful extravaganza amidst millions of hungry Nigerians. Now a good gum-shoes would have gone a step further to inform the world on how they reached that conclusion - informing the world on the evidential steps taken to arrive at that determination. But no, she was addressing a cowered populace whose journalists have eaten of the truth-forbidden fruit and for brown enveloped transport money, would not waste their time digging deep into a developing story. The assistant director said it and that makes it true; really? There was no identity suggesting the two personalities as the same person; there was no information scooped from a hard-drive somewhere to buttress the assertion; there was no percipient witness who testified as to the dual identities; or was there any false document/s with the alias found in Okah's possession with his picture on it; yet she told the world that the SS has identified Okah as the 'Gbomo Jomo.' Icheoku asks, if it is truly Okah that is Gbomo Jomo, why then does the said Gbomo Jomo still write emails while its body-double Okah is in detention in faraway South Africa; or is he getting access to a computer as was his interview with Al-Jazeera television while in detention? If truly Okah is the Gbomo Jomo, why did another Gbomo Jomo write again just this week alerting Abuja residents of an upcoming bombing of their city? Icheoku strongly believes that political pressure is pushing state security operatives into desperately wanting to solve this problem immediately and in the process, things are being muddled up and rushed through. Just in case, a direct question to Madam Assistant Director, 'how did your agency establish that Okah is the same person as Gbomo Jomo?

Further, Icheoku asks if the arrest of Raymond Dokpesi was not in connection with the explosion, why then was he falsely detained and for thirteen long hours without access to his lawyers, friends and family? Why then was he confined and for such a long period. Icheoku queries further if Raymond Dokpesi did not 'freely walk into the SSS' in connection with the explosion, what then was his business going or being there or did he also mistake it for his new dig as the campaign headquarters of the evil-one, former maximum ruler Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida. If Raymond Dokpesi was not arrested, but simply visited on his own free-will, has the SSS since apologized to him for unnecessary and unreasonably prolonging his said visit or pay him compensation for his time? Simply put, this assistant director was not leveling with or telling the world what the true state of affairs is regarding the investigation into the independence day Abuja bombing; except statements are diversionary curve balls. Whatever information these guinea pigs may have already supplied or would eventually supply was not voluntary and must have been extracted from them through unbearable torture.
Icheoku calls on the SSS to produce these suspects immediately for physical body examination for signs of torture, of battered and broken bodies, busted lips as well as black eyes. The usual broomstick insert into the phallus, the hanging on the ceiling fan, the mosquitoes, the stewing of bucket receptor of human feces as well as liver-punches are all too familiar and would make even the most hard-core terrorist confess to anything. Talk about the real cruel and unusual punishment and water-boarding becomes a pic-nic or a walk in the park. But with such a damning humiliation of a nation and her fledgling providential president, leading to the death of 16 innocent Nigerians with 67 others wounded, Icheoku can only imagine what hell on earth these detained suspects are currently going through as payment for the incident. To add that they are detained in a tomb-like underground facility without any light rays at all, a place similar to dungeons of the ancient Rome might be TMI; but hey the world should know the type of cohesive evidence of complicity this woman is bragging about.
Finally, if it is true that this week's 'Gbomo Jomo' used the same Zoom Mobile modem to send out the warning email and also sent it from Lagos as was the previous Gbomo Jomo modus operandi, then it is correct to posit that this Gbomo Jomo is capable of being more than one person? Or better still that the Nigeria SSS spoke rather too quickly that they have netted the Gbomo Jomo or a Gbomo Jomo? What if Gbomo Jomo is a call letter code-name and that it is not even a real live human-being? Based on this latest warning development, Icheoku believes that Gbomo Jomo is still out there if he/she/it exists; and that the authorities in Nigeria have the wrong Gbomo Jomo or most plausible that Gbomo Jomo is just an assumed name personality code. This latest SSS briefing that Okah is Gbomo Jomo reminds one of the emphatic exculpation of MEND by President Jonathan as not being the independence day bombers while the same MEND was vociferously stating their claim to the bombing. Here a Gbomo Jomo is saying that he truly exists and that Henry Okah is not him, yet the SSS is insisting that Okah is Gbomo Jomo; and while Gbomo Jomo is still writing his/her emails as Henry Okah, the SSS's Gbomo Jomo, is cooling-off in detention in South Africa. Like Eminem Slim Shady once asked and Icheoku hereby re-asks, could the real Gbomo Jomo please stand up!

Denies lawyers, journalists coverage of case
Okah bought cars used in attacks, says prosecution
THE State Security Service (SSS) relived the dark days of military dictatorship in Nigeria yesterday when its operatives began the secret prosecution of seven persons linked with the twin bomb blasts in Abuja before a Chief Magistrate’s Court. The attacks near Nigeria’s 50th Independence anniversary celebration grounds in Abuja on October 1 claimed 12 persons.
As early as 6.00 a.m., heavily armed security agents and SSS operatives took over the court located in Wuse Zone 6 and its environs and barred the public from witnessing the proceedings.
In South Africa, the prosecution in the continued trial of Henry Okah over the Abuja blasts, told the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court yesterday that the accused instructed his co-conspirators to buy the two cars used in the bombings.
The prosecutor, Shaun Abrahams, said: “Prior to the detonation of the two improvised explosive devices on October 1 in Abuja, two vehicles, namely a Honda and a Mazda 626 were bought in Lagos on the instruction of Okah, by persons complicit in the crime.”
With the Abuja trial area well secured, a team of senior officers of the SSS amongst them, an Assistant Director, Marilyn Ogar, arrived just as the seven suspects, including Charles Okah, elder brother of the assumed leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND), were conveyed to court with two vehicles without registration numbers.
But as reporters made attempts to enter the court premises, stern-looking and heavily armed security agents barred them. The lawyers to the accused and court officials were also not allowed access to the premises.
The accused were alleged to have been responsible for the October 1 bombings that claimed 12 Nigerians, including security agents and were, charged for carrying out terrorist acts, conspiracy to cause bodily harm as well as felony against the state.
As a result of the secrecy with which they were brought to court and the barring of the public, including reporters, from the proceedings, it was unclear whether the accused were actually arraigned in order for them to take their plea or not.
The Guardian, however, learnt that Chief Magistrate Oyebola Oyewumi was averse to such Gestapo trial and therefore adjourned the case till November 24, 2010 and directed the SSS to avail them access to their counsel in the interest of justice.
