When Benny Chinedu Obiasogu-Ten P Gave Parents Befitting Burial…Becomes Ogbuehi Of Uli



All road leading to Amamputu Uli in Anambra State witnessed gridlock over the weekend as America based socialite, Benny Chinedu Obiasogu popularly known as Ten P bade his beloved parent an epoch-making farewell in a in carnival like event.

The burial rites, which commenced on Thursday, 20th August 2015 pulled out indigenes of Oraifite, Umuoma, Amamputu and surrounding clans in their thousands as they paid their last respect to Nnaoma, Ogbuehi Ezenwafo Moses Emejuru Obiasogu and Ezinne Margaret Ajahalonu Obiasogu, parents of the Island big boy, Ten P.

Sources close to the family disclose to us that the 84-year-old Moses Obiasogu who was also one of the Ndi Ichie of the Uli Ruling Council gave up the ghost some minutes after he heard the news of the passing on of his cherished his wife.

The remains of the Obiasogus arrived Uli on Friday the 21st and were taken to the Igwe’s Palace where a drama and traditional rites were performed by the council of Chiefs in honour of the deceased led by the Eze Udoka the 2nd of Uli, Sir Igwe Damian Okekaibeya Onyekaonwu.

Shortly after the corpses were laid at the Obiasogu’s family house where friends, family members and the entire Uli community came together to pay their last respect amidst tears and joyful celebration of the life and times of the rare and never to be forgotten couple.

During the service of songs conducted by the faithful of St Anthony of Padua Parish Uli in honour of the deceased, the Catechist described the couple as true Christian who dedicated their time for the service of God and the community who never relented till they joined the saints.

In recognition of the dedicated service of the late Moses Obiasogu,to his community and for continuation of same, the royal council of Uli and indeed the entire town,unanimously asked the chief mourner, Benny Chinedu Obiasogu, to step into his father’s shoes by bestowing on him the traditional title of ‘The Ogbuehi of Uli land’, as formerly held by his father until his demise.

This is a clear response to prayers of fathers who want their child(ren) to walk in their exemplary shoes as soon as they bid the world farewell.

Ten P afterwards was conferred with the chieftaincy title, The Ogbuehi of Uli land. So, when next you see the young man, Benny, Ten P around you, remember he is now a respected red cap chief with full royal benefits.

In appreciating the honour bestowed on him by the King, Ten P said, “the honour is well cherished by me and I will forever remember the son of whom I’m. I promise to uphold the honour and integrity of my parents by committing myself to the social welfare of my community in no small measure within the confines of my capacity”.

Despite his “expulsion”, ADC presidential candidate, Kachikwu, makes INEC list



Mr Kachikwu was expelled from the party last Friday by the Ralph Nwosu-led NWC.

The embattled presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Dumebi Kachikwu, has been named among candidates validly nominated by political parties for the 2023 presidential election despite his “expulsion” from the party.

Mr Kachikwu was among the 18 presidential candidates approved by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Tuesday.

The Ralph Nwosu-led National Working Committee (NWC) of the party announced the expulsion of Mr Kachikwu from the party last Friday for alleged anti-party activities.

He was expelled along with seven other key party leaders following the recommendation of a seven-member disciplinary committee earlier set up by the ADC NWC. The NWC had earlier on 2 September placed the presidential candidate on suspension.

Mr Nwosu, in a statement issued late Friday, said the disciplinary committee found Mr Kachikwu guilty of allegations of gross misconduct, and gross violations of its constitution, among others.

But in its reaction the following day, the interim leadership of the ADC dismissed Mr Kachikwu’s purported expulsion.

The interim National Chairman of the Party, Patricia Akwashiki, in a statement, described the action of the erstwhile chairman, Mr Nwosu, as the antics of a sinking man clutching at straws.

The crisis rocking the ADC has its genesis in the call for the resignation of the national chairman by 27 state chairmen of the party, having spent 17 years in the office.

At the time of filing this report, we could not confirm if the party’s leadership had made formal or legal requests to the commission to remove the candidate from the list.

Stella Obasanjo’s brother, John Abebe, arraigned for fraud



Dr. John Abebe, the younger brother of a former First Lady, Stella Obasanjo, was on Monday arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Monday before the Lagos State Special Offences Court in Ikeja over allegations of fraud.

Abebe was arraigned alongside a former Head of Firstbank Plc, United Kingdom Correspondent Office, Kamoru Alade Oladimeji, before Justice Olubunmi Abike-Fadipe on six charges of conspiracy, stealing, and obtaining money under pretence.

Part of the counts against the defendants read: “That you, Dr. John Abebe and Kamoru Alade Oladimeji, on or about the 4th day of June 2013 in Lagos within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court conspired amongst yourselves to commit felony to wit; stealing the sum of N120 million worth of property of Arsenal Technologies Limited.”

“That you, Dr. John Abebe and Kamoru Alade Oladimeji, on or about the 4th day of June 2013, in Lagos within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court conspired amongst yourselves to commit felony to wit; obtaining by false pretence the sum of N120 million property of Arsenal Technologies Limited under the pretence that your property lying being and situate at 9, Magbon Close, Ikoyi-Lagos State, which you pledged as the security to the Arsenal Technologies Limited was unencumbered, which representation you knew to be false.”

“That you Dr. John Abebe and Inducon Nigeria Limited, on or about the 4th day of June 2013, in Lagos within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, with intent to defraud and to gain for yourself the sum of $1,000,000.00 or its Naira equivalent from Arsenal Technologies Limited by false pretence to procure the execution of valuable security to wit; a deed of assignment between Inducon Nigeria Limited and Arsenal Technologies Limited, wherein you falsely claimed that the property lying being and situate at No. 9, Magbon Close, Ikoyi-Lagos was unencumbered and that you have full powers to assign and transfer the said property to the assignor; Arsenal Technologies Limited.

According to EFCC, the offences committed are contrary to Sections 280(1), (12), 8 (7), 285(1) and 278(1)(b) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2011.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Following their plea, the prosecutor, Sulaimon urged the court to fix a trial date and to remand the defendants in the custody of the Nigerian Correctional Services until the hearing and determination of the charge.

However, the defense counsel, Anthony Popo and Sam Etaifo urged the court to grant their clients bail in the most liberal terms.

While moving the bail application on behalf of Abebe, Popo told the judge that the matter before her is a commercial transaction between the first defendant and the nominal complainant, which he is ready to settle out of court.

He also claimed that Abebe had paid back the sums of $100,000 and N30 million to the complainant and had also deposited the title document of 26 acres of land and the documents of a property in London to show his seriousness to resolve the matter.

The lawyer further submitted that the defendant would not jump bail since he never violated the terms of the administrative bail granted to him by the EFCC.

The prosecutor did not oppose the application but urged the court to impose stringent terms that will ensure the defendant’s appearance in court for their trial.

In her ruling, Justice Abike-Fadipe granted the first defendant bail in the sum of N20 million with one surety in like sum.

She directed that the surety must be a resident of Lagos and must deposit the title document of a land property whose value must not be less than N20m

The judge also admitted the second defendant to bail in the sum of N10m with one surety in like sum, who must be a resident of the state.

Justice Abike-Fadipe further ordered that the defendant shall continue to enjoy the administrative bail earlier granted to them by the EFCC but if they failed after seven days to perfect the terms of the bail she granted them, they shall be arrested and remanded in prison.

She adjourned the case to December 6 for commencement of trial.
