RMD popular nollyword actor,a fraud mess….

RMD in fraud Scandal

Popular Nollywood actor turned politician, Richard Mofe Damijo (popularly called RMD), who’s the Commissioner for Culture and Tourism in Delta State has allegedly embezzled N50 million belonging to the ministry, together with the acting General Manager of the state’s Tourism Board, Philo Nkem Ajufo.

Sources in Delta State, including two employees of the Culture Ministry, told our reporter that a former commissioner in the Ministry had requested N50 million to organize the “Delta State Expo 2007.” However, the state government was unable to release the funds that particular year to sponsor the yearly event.

By some bizarre twist, the funds were finally released to the ministry’s tourism account in May, 2012.
“As soon as the money arrived, the commissioner said that the ministry could no longer hold the event since six years had elapsed,” said a source within the ministry. “The Honorable Commissioners also argued that Deltans would have forgotten about the event – and therefore the money should not be used for the purpose it was released.”

However, our reporter obtained documents from the Delta State Ministry of Finance stipulating that the N50 million must be spent on the event for which the Culture Ministry applied for it. The warrant was signed by one P.O. Evuojapha on behalf of the state’s Commissioner of Finance. The warrant indicated that N35 million of the funds was to go to the Tourism Board.

Our sources disclosed that RMD connived to issue a check of N35 million in the name of Ms. Ajufo who reportedly deposited the sum into her First Bank private account number 3006131619. “Mrs. Ajufo and RMD then shared the money,” one of our sources asserted.

Another government source said, “It is very obvious that the manner the check was issued in the name of the board GM instead of in the name of the board was fraudulent. It portrays an element of fraud.”

Several of our sources depicted Ms. Ajufo as somebody versed in the art of warming up to top politicians in the state and getting her way.

Two sources said Ms. Ajufo used her share of the looted funds to start off a twin duplex building located at No.6 Dunkwu Crescent in Asaba, the state capital. The building is behind Junior Staff quarters and near a Redeemed Christian Church. One source said Ms. Ajufo started the project in June, 2012.

Surprisingly, a source close to Ms. Ajufo told SaharaReporters that the head of the tourism board had denied receiving any of the embezzled funds. “She accused Mr. Mofe Damijo of carting away the whole sum of N50 million even when her account was used to commit the fraud,” said the source.

Meanwhile, Ms. Ajufo’s staff have reportedly lost all patience with her manner of running the board. “The acting GM is very, very corrupt,” said a staffer. “As we talk, apart from her official car, the Tourism Board cannot boast of a single functional car. All the board’s cars are grounded. And in this era of technology, there is no single working computer apart from one in her office – which she doesn’t use. Her office is entitled to N1 million subventions every month, but as soon as the money comes the commissioner and the GM share most of it. The left over is never properly used by the GM.”

When a reporter sent a text to Ms. Ajufo, the embattled GM wrote back, “Please, speak with the Honorable Commissioner for Culture and Tourism. Thank you.”

Contacted by phone, Mr. Damijo denied all the allegations, insisting that no such money was released to his ministry at any time. “That matter is a dead matter,” he said. “There was no N50 million released to my ministry.” I run the Ministry with people, the Permanent Secretary and other directors.”

Models Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell pose naked as they admit their love for each other

Models Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell pose naked as they admit their love for each other

KATE Moss and Naomi Campbell stripped off for a sexy photoshoot that saw them admit their love to each other.

The pair cuddled up in the striking black and white snap for Interview Magazine that saw Naomi, 42, expose her famous assets.

And in a teaser of the interview inside, it is titled: “I love you, Kate! Naomi Campbell talks to Kate Moss.”

The supermodels, who reunited for a cover for the first time since their Vogue Paris shoot in 2008, chatted about their beginnings in the industry.

Kate, 38, asked Naomi: “I read that you made your first public appearance in a Bob Marley video.”

And Naomi replied: “Yeah. I was seven, I think. He was such a handsome man. I remember I started crying when I saw his dreadlocks because I thought they were worms. But he was really, really gentle.”

The pair also discussed ethnic prejudice in the modelling world, with Kate admitting: “When I first got to New York, I was like, ‘What are they talking about?’ I couldn’t tell, you know.

“It was really weird and I also think growing up in South London, it’s so mixed race.”

And Naomi added: “Exactly, we just know our area and how we were raised, so it was a big eye opener to me.”

Asked if she felt she was fighting for equality in fashion, Naomi said: “I can’t say that the word battle is the right word but it definitely felt like it was an uphill struggle for something.

“I felt like I had to do what I had to do for my race and to keep awareness out there.”

Sex Scandal, BB Chat and email Crashes Nollywood Actress’ Marriage

You can never get enough of the so-called classic movie from Nollywood but this time the story and characters are real life and the story has branches. Please do enjoy the premiere of the movie entitled “Husband snatching palaver

friend crashes marriage

?”

Here it goes: Thelma Ozy is a pretty make-up artiste in Nollywood and the ex-girl friend of comedian and on-air radio personality, Steve Onu (a.k.a Yaw).

A year ago, there was buzz online and in Nollywood that Thelma was dating A-list actor, Segun Arinze and almost crashed his marriage to Schlumberger lawyer, Julie. Insiders confirmed it took prayer and fasting to get Thelma off Segun’s arms. This led to Yaw dumping Thelma. And as you read this, Yaw and Segun do not speak!

Thelma is in the news again and this time she has crashed the marriage of her best friend, actress Gloria Mba, whose Marriage was contracted to Houston-based, Leo Kanu on March 27, 2011. Gloria announced, via her facebook handle that her marriage had crashed.

Insiders informed us that Thelma and Leo, who have been having phone sex met in Berlin (Germany) and consummated the affair. The trip was all expenses covered by Leo, the smitten lover boy.

We contacted Gloria on Sunday, Novembar 25, 2012 and after asking her questions she cuts the call after denying that her marriage has crashed. We called back and rephrased the questions and sighing deeply she opened up, “Yes my marriage is over and yes, Thelma is part of the reason it crashed.”

We asked her what happened and what role Thelma played in the crash. “I read Thelma and Leo’s mails to each other and Thelma didn’t know I knew they are dating. I bumped into his inbox. We have our passwords and I just wanted to check, I never bothered to check all this while out of trust. But I just got curious and checked it and got a shocker.”

We asked her to copy us the mail and if she confront Thelma when the marriage is already over and she said: “No, I cannot copy you the email. I just want to move on. My ex-husband’s friend asked me to confront them but there’s no need because it will change nothing. I took Thelma like my own sister and we were so close.”

To be fair, we called Thelma and here’s what went down, “Thelma, we heard you crashed your friend, Gloria Mba’s marriage.

Her response: “Oh my goodness, this is not real (laughing) Is her marriage crashed? Has she called me? I know her husband and I was at their wedding. Oh my God.”

Thelma, we heard you have been mailing Gloria’s husband and having phone sex with him. Is this true?”

Thelma dropped the phone and we called back but she refused to pick the phone, despite the number of times we tried.

Akindele has in the past has been connected with roles dealing with topical and touching issues. In her teens she starred as ‘Bisi’ in the family and safe sex oriented educational series ‘I Need to Know’

Her role in the self-produced ‘Jenifa’ and blockbuster sequel ‘The Return of Jenifa’ were styled to be comedic, but the movie more importantly also shed light on the awareness of HIV/AIDS.

Homosexuals Have Taken Over Nollywood – Actor Cries Out


In the thinking of many young ladies and guys who are desperate to make it big in the movie industry, desperate times call for the adoption of all possible tactics to measure up.

“One idiot came toasting me o! That is true as funny as it would sound. Something is happening in this Nollywood. These up and coming actors are being used by some of the established producers who are gays. If you want to get a job as an up and coming actor, you must sleep with them. You must be sexed to get a job.

“We are no longer in the era of the female actresses suffering from sexual harassment; it is now man to man. Abomination! God has a lot of things to judge. Man to woman is also bad, but we can easily overlook that. Why not put your penis in the right place. There is something spiritual in that thing (frowns).

“Why would you bend down for one idiot to penetrate you, thereby destroying your future? You left God and bowed to devil…by the time you get up, you get up as a woman, while the idiot that penetrated you walks away majestically! Their payback is sudden death, and it keeps happening.”

Those were the words of popular comic actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr. Ibu, while condemning the negative trend that is sweeping across Nollywood like a wild fire.

Finally, CBN Cancels N100 Charge On All ATM Transactions

The Central Bank of Nigeria and the Bankers Committee on Tuesday finally agreed to put a stop to all charges associated with the use of Automated Teller Machines.

The agreement was the highpoint of a meeting between the committee made up of Chief Executive Officers of Deposit Money Banks, and directors and top officials of the CBN.

At the end of the meeting, the Director, Banking Supervision Department, CBN, Mrs. Agnes Martins, addressed journalists in company with the Group Managing Director, Union Bank of Nigeria Plc, Mr. Emeka Emuwa; Group Managing Director, First Bank of Nigeria Plc, Mr. Bisi Onasanya; and acting Managing Director, Keystone Bank Limited, Dr. Shehu Muhammed.

Before now, account holders had been made to pay a flat rate of N100 per withdrawal any time they used ATMs other than the ones that belonged to their banks.

But Onasanya said the decision to stop the charge would help to increase the patronage of ATMs, thus deepening the financial inclusion strategy of the central bank.

He said the modalities for the stoppage were being worked out, adding that within the shortest time possible, the adjustments would be reflected on all the ATMs.

Jackie Appiah Divorces Husband of Three Years

Says She is Happier Now
Jack Appiah For many Ghanaians, this week is such a horrible one, reading all sorts of sad news everywhere. For Nollywood industry, NSB reported the death of Nollywood Veteran Pete Eneh but for Ghollywood industry, it’s reported by a reliable source that the Ghanaian female movie star, Jackie Appiah marriage has definitely ended.

This must be terrible news for the top award winning movie star fans. The actress has one lovely son out of the estrange marriage Although we cannot confirm who actually ended the marriage or what caused the collapse of the star’s marriage, it’s reported that the star is happier today than she was when married since three years ago.

Once upon a time, we were in love but now we are better apart. Love really not enough in certain circumstances, even in marriage? Or is it something else than love? The very one thing or element which lead to marriage could probably be the same thing may ends it.

Hmmm! Even, we hardly see both of them together when married. Not to talk of the wedding picture, nowhere to be found on the internet.
