Keem Belo-Osagie, Adrian Wood float new GSM company
Former United Bank for Africa (UBA) chairman, Hakeem Belo-Osagie and former CEO of MTN in Nigerian, Australian Adrian Wood, are said to be working on floating a GSM company in Nigeria. Reports say the recently licensed GSM operator MUBADALA, which is reportedly owned by the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dabri, won the license because of the role played by Belo-Osagie and Adrian Wood who is being touted as the CEO of the new company. I know for sure that Nigeria needs more GSM companies, the higher the competition, the cheaper the prices...Let's wait and see.
Ex-Super Eagles footballer, Godwin Okpara jailed 13 years in France
Former Super Eagles defender, Godwin Okpara was on Friday June 1st sentenced to 13 years in prison by a French court for raping his adopted daughter, Tina.
His wife Linda, also received 15 years for her connivance and torture of the victim while Linda's mother bagged 5 years for failing to come to the aid of the young Tina.
The 34 year footballer who once played for PSG denied raping the girl, claiming that the sex with his adopted daughter was mutual.
Tina accused her adopted father of raping her consistently since she left Nigeria and joined the couple in France at the age of 13 in 2001. She said she was forced into sex with Godwin and was subjected to battery whenever she declined.
Other sources claim that Linda shaved Tina's head, stubbed a cigarette on her cheek and forced her to perform cruel sexual acts.
Their defence lawyer said there is a likelihood of an appeal.
I don't know the whole story, but all I'll say is this. May God reward Godwin Okpara for having consensual sex with a 13 year old.
