THEY SWARMED AND ANTIFA FLED

THEY SWARMED AND ANTIFA FLED
ICHEOKU says thanks to American Bikers, the much anticipated protest in Phoenix rally-styled speech did not materialize. May be we should have more of these Bikers in every rally. Kudos to the real bad ass men with steely balls.

NO MORE NATION BUILDING, JUST KILLING THE BAD GUYS.

NO MORE NATION BUILDING, JUST KILLING THE BAD GUYS.
ICHEOKU says the United States of America mandate to its military engaged overseas particularly Afghanistan is stop cuddling the bad guys, just whack them. ICHEOKU says certainly a c-change in the rules of engagement and it will certainly make it easier for our warriors who will risk less of their lives and limbs in battle fields. President Donald John Trump is definitely leading as said and providing the leadership our military needs as their Commander in Chief. Way to go.

NORTH KOREA PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.

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.

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

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS McGREGOR

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.

"The threat of evil is ever present. We can contain it as long as we stay vigilant, but it can never truly be destroyed. - Lorraine Warren (Annabelle, the movie)

“I’m not that interested in material things. As long as I find a good bed that I can sleep in, that’s enough.” - Nicolas Berggruem, the homeless billionaire.

OLISA METUH'S BAIL, JUSTICE ABANG SHOWS THE WAY.

Icheoku says Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court Abuja Division has just demonstrated the right course of action, the proper way, to do it when a government is wary of releasing an accused person on bail. Rather than an outright refusal to grant bail or the government descending into the sewer, stirring anarchy by refusing to comply with valid order of court granting bail, just make the conditions too stringent and very difficult, if not nearly impossible to perfect. The Judge in Olisa Metuh's bail application exactly just did that - he did the government one huge favor by literally denying him bail. His bail condition will ensure that Olisa Metuh is not going anywhere very soon, at least not so easily. 

Ruling on Olisa Metuh's bail application, the judge said that he is favorably disposed to granting the accused bail since the offense is a bailable offense and in the eyes of the law the accused is presumed innocent until proved guilty. According to the judge, "the paramount thing was for the court to impose conditions that would compel the attendance of the accused for trial." Justice Abang then went on to grant Olisa Metuh bail in the sum of N400 million, to be physically deposited, two sureties each contributing two hundred million Naira.  

In addition, the two sureties must each own landed property within the choice Maitama district of Abuja. The two sureties must also submit the Certificate of Occupancy to both properties to the Chief Registrar of the court for verification. The two sureties must also submit their three years tax clearance certificate, two recent passport photographs as well as affidavit of means. The judge then ordered Olisa Metuh to also surrender his international passport to the court's Chief Registrar. The judge finally ordered the prosecution to personally verify compliance of all the bail terms and conditions to ensure that all of them were fully and duly perfected. Icheoku says this is how it is done - give the accused near impossible conditions to perfecting a bail and see the magic he comes up with. 

The government will be watching to see who that person is that will pony up his or her N200 million and deposit same pending the final resolution of the case. That person shall also produce his or her three years tax clearance certificate which will enable the government to investigate the legitimacy of their livelihood and source of wealth. This automatically defeats any crowd-funding or money laundering to meet the bail deposit sum. The sureties shall also deposit the CofO to their property in Maitama District Abuja; not just any property, but ones owned by them and located in Maitama. This will give the government the added opportunity to further investigate the individuals and their source of income and whether necessary taxes were paid in full on the Maitama property. Then plus two photographs. 

So query, who would want to throw their hat in the ring in a fight with a charging incensed bull, President Muhammadu Buhari, who is raging mad at Nigerians for the near-blind loot perpetrated by just a few Nigerians including Olisa Metuh. By coming out to bail Olisa Metuh, what message will such surety be telegraphing to the president as well as Nigerians, that it is ok to loot or that he or she has so much resources that he or she can now go to battle with the president and his anti-corruption government? Icheoku does not know about you but these conditions are as good as it gets and tantamount to no bail at all, because they will be very difficult to perfect under the current tensed anti-corruption atmosphere in Nigeria. 

But hey, lets see how it all pans out but Icheoku says this is the right way to not release anyone from custody; instead of the bungle that was President Muhammadu Buhari's refusal to comply with valid orders of courts which granted bail to Sambo Dasuki and Nnamdi Kanu. Such valid refusal to release on bail is surreptitiously done through the court, during pre-bail hearing and never by post-bail interventionist action. A very difficult to perfect bail condition is the key, period. This will take the wind out of the sail of rule of law activists as it will then be the accused defendant who could not perfect his bail terms and not necessarily the government disobeying court's order granting him bail. Our prediction, Olisa Metuh might be staying in Kuje prison for sometime, barring any miracle of intervention.
