EFCC Sought To Humiliate Me For Criticising Buhari – Ozekhome

Renowned lawyer and human rights activist, Mike Ozekhome, has described the order by an Abuja Federal High Court on Thursday, restraining the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) from arresting or detaining him as “a defeat to impunity and lawlessness.”

Mr Ozekhome told Peoples Gazette on Friday that all the court did was to vindicate him of EFCC’s false allegations of money laundering and tax evasion levelled against him by the then Ibrahim Magu-led anti-graft agency which it said based its allegations on an intelligence report provided by the Nigeria Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU).

The Nation had on Friday reported that the presiding judge, Inyang Ekwo, described as unlawful, EFCC’s moves of intimidation, repeated invitations, threats to arrest, detain and humiliate the lawyer over his criticism of EFCC’s handling of corruption cases during the leadership of Mr Magu.

According to the news outlet, the judge termed the agency’s actions as an infringement of his fundamental human rights as postulated in Sections 35, 37, 39 and 41 of the Construction and Articles 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, and 14 of the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights Ratification and Enforcement Act.

The lawyer, responding to his vindication, stated that the court’s judgement was “a demonstration of the resilient power of the judiciary and course of law to enthrone justice to defend the rights of the common people.”

According to Mr Ozekhome, “Magu wanted to humiliate and intimidate me just for criticising him and the federal government about their lopsided fight against corruption which made them to take only the oppositions, critics, and human rights activists while embracing the real and corrupt people and bringing them into their party.”

He described all the allegations against him as cooked up lies to get him into their net because they felt embarrassed after he had won all the suits they filed against him.

“It’s Ungodly For You To Marry A Woman And Not Be Giving Her Enough Sex” – Governor Ortom’s Senior Aide Says

Smith Akom Takema, the Senior Special Assistant to the Benue State Governor on Rural Development, has said that lack of sexual satisfaction is one of the common causes of marital problems.

 

The married father advised couples to court properly and ask honest questions before marriage because it is ungodly to marry a woman and not satisfy her sexually. Taking to Facebook on Wednesday, April 14, he wrote;

 

“It’s unGodly for you to marry a woman and not be giving her enough sex. Sex is created by God to be enjoyed, they are women who are not sex freaks and can go without it for months without minding, but they are some who can’t stand without sex for a week,”

 

This are things we ought to know during courtship but Christianity has put a ban for sex before marriage.

 

Most times going by christianity standards we don’t even know who we are getting married to as regard to sex life, how can you manage the post ownership, there are things the body systems can’t adopt.

 

“Mbakirgh ngokwase er na hua kempe GA. ” Meaning : you don’t force a old woman to wear pant. The above means a woman/ man who loves regular sex can’t stop it over night.

 

Please, couples should court properly at least ask sincerely and Frank questions among them selves if they can stand the test of fornication. Most marital problems emanate from cheats, unfaithfulness and lack of sexual satisfaction.
