Published

Ebenezer Adejumola, the boyfriend and suspected killer of 20-year-old university graduate and model, Oluwaseun Ajila, has been remanded at the Olukuta Medium Prison, by a court sitting in Akure.

Adejumola, who was alleged to have raped and stabbed Ajila to death, was ordered to be remanded by Magistrate Yakub, who adjourned the case to the 22nd of January, 2018 when the Department of Public Prosecution, DPP is expected to advise the court on the case.

The charge sheet reads, “Count I: That you, on the 4th of October 2018, between 1705hrs and 1910hrs, did kill Oluwaseun by strangulating and stabbing her with kitchen knife which resulted in her death.

“Count II: That you, on same date, did rape Oluwaseun.” The mother of the deceased had alleged that the suspect called her, twice, on the day she was murdered, asking her where she (the mother) was.

Detectives were allegedly also informed that, on the day the victim was murdered, the suspect called one of his friends to inform him that Seun was dead.

The victim was said to be a virgin, while a source said that she had declined sexual advances from the principal suspect since they started dating in January.

This had reportedly caused friction between them in June, to the extent that the victim’s mother had to intervene and told the boyfriend to allow her daughter be until they get married for sex to happen.

The victim also reportedly expressed fear that she wanted to opt out of the relationship because she suspected that the boyfriend may have joined a gang of online fraudsters.

But he denied this even before the victim’s mother but allegedly confessed that some of his friends were fraudsters. Family sources said that Seun’s mother impressed it on the suspect not to trouble her daughter anymore on his sexual demand.

The suspect was alleged to have insisted on his demand until they parted for a while but later reunited after he reportedly promised to wait until they get married for sex.

Hardship: We Plan To Establish A National Commodity Board To Crash Food Prices – VP Shettima

Published

on

Vice President, Kashim Shettima, disclosed this on Tuesday during a two-day high-level strategic meeting on climate change, food systems and resource mobilization held at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

According to Shettima, the board’s mandate includes assessing and regulating food prices, as well as overseeing a strategic food reserve to stabilize prices of critical grains and other essential food items.

“Our solution to the potential food crisis has become immediate, medium, and long-term strategies. The short-term strategy entails revitalizing the food supply through specific interventions like the distribution of fertilizers and grains to farmers and households to counteract the effects of subsidy removal; fostering collaboration between the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Water Resources for efficient farmland irrigation, ensuring year-round food production, and addressing price volatility by establishing a National Commodity Board.
“This board will continually assess and regulate food prices, maintaining a strategic food reserve for stabilizing prices of crucial grains and other food items,” Shettima said.

On how the government is handling the security challenges that have prevented farmers from working on their farms, he said:

“I wish to assure you that we will engage our security architecture to protect the farms and the farmers so that farmers can return to the farmlands without fear of attacks.
“We won’t only make it safe for farmers to return to their farms, but we will also ensure the activation of land banks. There are currently 500,000 hectares of already mapped land that will be used to increase the availability of arable land for farming, which will immediately impact food output.”
