Ex-Skye bank chairman, Tunde Ayeni, is not dead- EFCC says

4B72FA81-CEAC-4343-916E-C7D108A57AF3

EFCC has denied media reports that former Skye Bank chairman, Tunde Ayeni, who was a guest in their headquarters, has died. Read the statement below

The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has been drawn to a report in Thisday newspaper of Saturday, February 9 with the headline: “EFCC Has Poisoned Tunde Ayeni in Custody, Allege Opposition Parties.”

The report according to the author, followed a press release issued on Friday, February 8, in Abuja by the spokesman of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) CUPP, Mr Ikenga Ugochinyere, wherein he claimed that “a credible source” revealed to him that Ayeni was currently undergoing treatment “in an undisclosed medical facility after he was poisoned in the detention cell of the EFCC.” Other journalists have called to ask if the story is true that he was dead.

Given that the intention of this false alarm is to incite public opinion against the Commission, we found it compelling to state in no unclear terms that Mr Ayeni upon arrest and conveyance to the Commission was neither offered food nor drink by our operatives.

There was also nothing consumable: food, drink or water that was brought to him within the brief period he was with his interrogators. When he complained of illness and opted to see a doctor, which he was promptly obliged.

We also wish to state that so far, there has not been any report of any dire health condition on Mr Ayeni and it’s likely there would not be. The public may wish to know that the Commission in the course of its duties has become conversant with all manners of theatrics from some suspects who would elect not to cooperate.

It is also our desire to inform the CUPP that as a Commission, we follow due process, and that we are a law-abiding entity and as such, will not keep Ayeni longer than required by law. We also give our word that he will have his day in court as and when due.

It is important at this point that we restate that the Commission under the leadership of its Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu is well insulated from going-ons in the political space and that our mandate is well cut out for us by constitution.

We therefore wish to clarify that Ayeni as former Chairman of the failed Skye Bank has allegations of corruption to thrash out with us. It was strictly for this purpose that he became our guest.

Any other consideration outside this is unknown to us. Again, much as we find the claim of being handed a list of 45 opposition figures “to invite, arrest, detain and restrain before the opening of polls on February 16,” as contained in the CUPP release utterly nonsensical, we note that it is a grave disservice to the country at this material time for anyone to seek to aggravate the heat in political space with a reckless rumour such as this from the CUPP.

We therefore, urge the public not to be swayed by the rumour but treat it with the disregard it thoroughly deserves.

Boy, 6, beheaded in Saudi Arabia in front of his screaming mum for belonging to the wrong religion

C3F3A5B1-0939-458C-8647-9060D6144DA7.pngA six-year-old boy was beheaded in front of his screaming mum in Saudi Arabia for belonging to the wrong branch of Islam.

The child and his mother visited a shrine to the Prophet Muhammad in Medina. While there, they were allegedly approached and were asked if they were Shia Muslims. The mum said they are indeed Shia Muslims and several minutes later a car pulled up beside them and the child was snatched away from her.

The boy was then repeatedly stabbed in the neck with a piece of broken glass until he was beheaded, it is claimed. His mum cried out helplessly as he was killed in front of her.

 

Boy, 6, beheaded in Saudi Arabia in front of his screaming mum for belonging to the wrong religion

 

In Saudi Arabia, the predominant branch of Islam is Sunni, accounting for around three quarters of the population.

Human rights groups say practitioners of other forms of the Islam faith are persecuted in the country.

Shia Rights Watch, a Washington DC-based campaign group, said of the public murder:

 

There was no intervention from anyone and no response from authority thus far.

The Saudi Shia community came together in mourning and to show solidarity with the parents.

The community also reported this incident is a result of ongoing violations and lack of protection by the Saudi authority toward its Shia population.

Saudi Shia have been under military crackdown by their government and many Shia are in prisons and on death toll.
