Rivers under siege –State Assembly Speaker

rivers-state-house-of-assembly

Security was beefed up at the entrance of the Rivers State House of Assembly, along Moscow Road, Port Harcourt, after police encountered supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Thursday who said they were on solidarity visit to the Speaker,  Daboturudima Adams. Security operatives also had a face off with  supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who protested against the delay in the swearing in of two of their members.

The two encounters happened  as the State House of Assembly called for the immediate transfer of the Commander,  Special Anti-Robbery Squad  (SARS)  in the State,  Akin Fakorede and Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of Operations, ACP Stephen Hasso.

It also called on the National Assembly to wade into the incessant attacks on Rivers State  by security agencies, and condemned a recent attack on the people by policemen in Port Harcourt.

The House’s call for the transfer of the two senior police officers from the State came on the heels of the alleged roles they played during the Thursday’s police routing of PDP supporters, when the Force was accused of injuring some persons.

Seventeen lawmakers,  yesterday, took the resolution during a plenary following a motion backed by the legislators. The motion was moved by Leader of the House, Martin Amaewhule, representing Obio/Akpor Constituency 1, and seconded by the Chairman, House Committee on Information,  Sam Ogeh,  representing Emohua Constituency.

Speaker of the House of Assembly,  Daboturudima  Adams,  who addressed journalists shortly after the sitting,  declared that the State was under siege since the coming of the APC-led Federal Government.

Adams also accused Hasso, of physically assaulting the Chief Security Officer (CSO) of Government House,  Port Harcourt, and detaining him momentarily.

Adams stated: “The unabated offensive of the Federal Government took yet,  unprecedented dimension in recent times, as evidenced in the many overt and covert atrocities that have been committed against the government and people of Rivers State. Here in Rivers State,  we have collectively resolved to stand against all forms of evil in whatever guise.

“It is true that when the people are oppressed,  the judiciary becomes the only hope ; and that when peace is threatened,  the law enforcement agencies are called upon not only to safeguard the peace, but also to protect lives and property.

“However,  in Rivers State,  barefaced and mindless partisanship of the security agencies have consistently hindered them from carrying out this obligation. The recent vicious assault on government officials, media practitioners in Rivers State and members of the PDP,  going about their lawful businesses and carrying out their civic responsibilities to the government is one repulsive pointer to the repugnancy of the Federal Government to Rivers State.

“We are concerned that officers of the Nigeria Police like Mr. Stephen Hasso and Mr. Akin Fakorede,  who are partisan,  bias and compromised,  can no longer be trusted to provide security for Rivers people, and those living or doing business in Rivers State”.

Zimbabwean Church leader in s*x scandal as photos naked photos and sex acts with 33 girls is exposed

Church leader
A Zimbabwean church leader, Nyasha Light Nyatsungo is enmeshed in a sex scandal and might also be facing legal action, after his ex-girlfriend flooded social media with his nude photo.
It was gathered that the Nyatsungo allegedly sent a nude picture of his Cape Town based ex–side chick, Shingi Mavenge, to his other girlfriend only identified as Beula who later broadcasted it on social media.
According to H-Metro, in an apparent fit of rage, Mavenge posted a WhatsApp chat she had with Nyatsungo’s wife identified as Nyasha Nhahumbi as well as a group chat with some of her former lover’s concubines.
According to Mavenge, she has gotten information that Nyatsungo has at least 33 girlfriends and has ditched his wife of eight years.
She adds that Nyatsungo bedded a girl who was their neighbour as well.
Mavenge said that the church leader’s wife revealed that they even consulted their local pastor in Mutare who failed in his attempts to mend Nyatsungo’s ways.
According to H-Metro, Nyatsungo, a married father of two, has denied ever circulating the picture, labelling Mavenge as a bitter woman whom he just flirted with on Facebook and nothing more.
“This Nyasha guy must be stopped in his tracks. He is going to pay for all the damage that he has done to me. He was the only one who had that leaked picture and I am shocked why he would forward it to some other girl,” fumed Mavhenge who is working on taking legal action.
 
“I started dating this guy in 2015 and never knew he was married. He lied.”  fumed Mavenge yesterday.
“That guy is full of lies and at some point, we opened a group chat with his wife and some of his girlfriends. He normally targets single mothers” added Mavenge.
H-Metro was furnished with six other cellphone numbers of his girlfriend that include Fadzai, Mutsa, Essy, Juliana, Barbra among others. Mutsa confirmed she once had a relationship with Nyatsungo have since terminated it since she discovered he was married.
Mavenge confirmed they met once in Johannesburg when she had to fly from Cape Town to meet her man sometime in April.
“That night he didn’t even have money. I had to pay the R800 for the accommodation as he had no money. He wanted to have sex with me but I flatly refused. He even wanted it without protection and I said No. he looked terrible with clothes in a plastic shopping bag. I want to write a letter to Pastor Rex who is the head of (the church) in Harare so that this guy be stopped with his tricks and lies,” added Mavenge.
When contacted over the phone in Mutare Nyatsungo confirmed he knew Mavenge but never had a relationship with her.
“I know her and we once flirted on Facebook. We never had a relationship as she is alleging. I don’t know why she is bitter. I haven’t seen the nude pictures she is talking about but I heard about it from Beula. We live in a democratic country. She can go ahead and sue me if she feels her rights have been infringed upon. All the allegations she is making are false and I don’t know her motive in trying to tarnish my image,” said Nyatsungo.
He said he was still with his wife whose phone rang without response yesterday afternoon. Despite his denials, H-metro was furnished with pictures of Nyatsungo and Mavenge, the time they met in April.
