Weeks After Marriage! Charles Orie's Caucasian Biz Partner Kidnapped...Loses Driver, Mopol


Charles Orie, the newly married erstwhile lover of ex-beauty Queen, Regina Askia might not be enjoying his recently contracted marriage if information at our disposal is anything to go by. 

Weeks after his fabulous marriage to girl-about-town, Alice Jackson, the multimillionaire businessman has started witnessing what can best be described as downturn in his life. 

As we speak, Charles Orie's Caucasian business partner, a Spanish man has been kidnapped yesterday in Asaba, Delta State and the driver and mobile policemen attached to him ended up losing their lives in the fiasco. This much National Enquirer can exclusively report. 

According to sources from the kidnap scene in Asaba, the abductors waylaid the SUV ferrying the Spaniard in a Hollywood movie style and efforts by the driver and mobile policemen guiding the Caucasian were thwarted when the gun totting bandits over powered them by killing them. 

The Spaniard has since been taken to custody and his abductors, we gathered have issued a N30m ransome to Charles Orie for his bail. 

We tried to get in touch with the newly wed, Charles Orie but he didn't pick his call when National Enquirer rang him this afternoon. 
We shall update you as events unfold.

Olisa Adibua, Obi Asika In EFCC Net Over Missing N50m!

Celebrated On-Air-Personality and Beat FM’s bulldozer, Olisa Adibua sure have an axe to grind with his erstwhile business partner and cousin, Obi Asika of Storm 360 fame. For the second time in less than a year, the well fed entertainment guru has again dragged Obi Asika before an anti graft agency, the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission for embezzlement.

The rift between the duo who used to be best of pals and cousins has taken a new twist as both parties seem to be ready to fight with their last blood, following their business gone sour story, this much National Enquirer can confidently reveal.

Dependable sources close to them have exclusively divulged to National Enquirer that the ex buddies and joint owners of Storm Group who fell apart when Obi Asika, sometimes around 2012 pushed Olisa, a director and share holder out of the business, have dragged each other to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

According to one of our grapevines, the case which is presently undergoing serious investigation at the CTGI department, was instituted by the radio personality, and he’s asking the Commission to investigate the many frauds which ran into hundreds of millions, that was allegedly committed by his erstwhile business partner, Mr. Asika, his driver Sunday Adebayo and personal assistant, Patrick Ojuoyen.

Meanwhile the petition which read ’’Request for Investigation of Fraudulent Activities in Storm 360 Limited’’ we authoritatively squealed is the second that was filed against Mr. Asika by Olisa in the last twenty months.

The request was first addressed to the Commissioner of Police, Special Fraud Unit SFU, Milverton, Ikoyi, Lagos on the 4th of May 2012. It asked the Force to investigate the disappearance of N50,152, 483, Fifty Million, One Hundred and Fifty Two Thousand, Eighty Three Naira and USD 496,596, Four Hundred and Ninety Six Thousand, Five Hundred and Ninety Six US Dollars from Storm 360 account where Obi Asika acts as the CEO and signatory.

Olisa Adibua, we reliably gathered got more than he bargained for upon submission of the petition as his ex partner didn’t only refuse to give answers to the allegations of possible mismanagement of funds but also petitioned the Inspector General of Police, alleging a threat to his life by his former friend.

Asika’s petition however got the nod of the powers that be as it led to the arrest of Olisa Adibua who was detained at the SFU on the 24th of July 2012 till around 9pm before the case was transferred to force headquarters Abuja.
In what looks like a fight back, the showbiz colossus seems not to be done with the case thus the reason for his fresh petition to the EFCC. Olisa in the petition this time lamented how Obi Asika who’s the sole signatory, though with his full approval, while their relationship lasted never allowed him have a look into the company’s bank statement despite that they jointly started the business in the year 2008 before Asika relocated fully to Nigeria from the United States.

He also pointed out that Mr. Asika had on countless occasions insisted that no money was made from the entertainment outfit whenever he queried the exact income because he has never received any dividends since the business kicked off hence his decision to go legal before he received the shocking sack letter, a decision he’s also challenging.

The duo, Enquirer heard, were guests at the EFCC Ikoyi office on Tuesday 26th of February 2014 where they were invited and interrogated on the allegation leveled against Obi Asika. Be assured that we shall bring you more details of the EFCC’s involvement as they unfold.

Pastor Oladiyun Runs For Cover As EFCC Storms CLAM Over N10m Fraud

 It was like a scene from a Nollywood movie the other day when the senior Pastor of the popular Christ Livingspring Apostolic Church a.k.a CLAM, Pastor Wole Oladiyun and other Pastors of the church took to their heels to prevent being arrested by the eagle eyed operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over a N10 million fraud that’s presently rocking the church, almost to its base.

According to dependable sources, one of the top Pastors of the church, Abiodun Olusola who’s believed to be Wole Oladiyun’s protégé has been apprehended and has been singing in Beethoven’s symphonies at the anti graft’s Ikoyi, Lagos office with indicting statement and facts nailing the general overseer of CLAM.

National Enquirer gathered reliably that, the case is that of a high level fraud perpetrated under religious guise and the victim, Mrs. Seyi Okunola, a super rich married woman who was a devotee of the Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries before she was lured to CLAM has vowed to get her pound of flesh by any means necessary.

”It’s high time we stop all these fake men of God defrauding innocent people under the pretext of offering spiritual assistance and in turn dispossess them of their hard earned sweat, it is just unfair, the government and lawmakers should look into this, there should be a BILL checkmating these dignified marabouts, this smart art of parading oneself as a Pastor to cheat and defraud people must stop”, a close relation of the victim confided in us.

Tracing the genesis of the spiritual fraud, we were reliably informed that, Mrs. Okunola was lured from MFM by one of CLAM’s devotees for worship and spiritual assistance, the woman we gathered had confided in one of her friends of the problems she’s facing in her matrimonial house.

On arrival at CLAM, she was introduced to the general overseer, Pastor Oladiyun who in turn asked his right hand man, Pastor Olusola to take the brief and act accordingly. The woman, we were told divulged her matrimonial problems, how her husband has not been satisfying her on bed for a long time and that she would be so happy and ready to offer anything if her prayers of having him back fully to herself could be met.

Pastor Olusola who the church’s management has denied did pray for this woman in privacy, our source is not too sure he didn’t have her canal knowledge owing to her bitterness against the church and that’s not all, she was asked to part with several millions of Naira totaling ten million, all for no tangible reasons and not until the demands kept coming without an end in sight that she woke up from her slumber and decided to seek redress from relevant authorities.

At the EFCC office, Pastor Olusola whom we gathered was once Oladiyun’s business partner before he became a Pastor had given a confessional statement that, he sowed a seed of N5m into Oladiyun’s account as part of his share of the loot but the Pastor has denied it through his spokesperson, Pastor Tade Adewakun. 

Mrs. Okunola reported the matter to the EFCC and they swooped on the church’s management on a fateful Wednesday whilst the church was having its weekly prayer but unfortunately the top pastors took to their heels.

In our facts finding mission, we sent a text message to the G.O of the church, Pastor Oladiyun on his mobile number 08060954000 for his own side of the story but after two days, one of his men got in touch with us and eventually emailed us the church’s side of the story.    

” Re: N10m Transaction Between Abiodun Olusola

and Mrs. Seyi Okunola

Following enquiries by a section of the media in respect of above mentioned, the Christ Livingspring Apostolic Ministry (CLAM) formally issues the following statement:
That Abiodun Olusola is NOT an employee of· the Christ Livingspring Apostolic Ministry as being speculated. He is one of the several ministers of the Lord who worship in CLAM during our weekly Deliverance Hour held on Wednesdays from 7am-10am.
That Abiodun Olusola is an independent businessman who neither does his business in partnership with CLAM nor uses CLAM as a platform to transact his business deals. CLAM has never been involved directly or indirectly in any of his business transactions.
We also· would like to state that the other party involved in the transaction in the person of Mrs. Seyi Okunola is only known as one out of the thousands of people who worship in CLAM every Wednesday. There is no further relationship between her and the ministry.

· particular reference to the N10m transaction between Abiodun Olusola and Mrs. Seyi Okunola, we categorically state that CLAM was not privy to it. Neither Abiodun Olusola nor Mrs. Seyi Okunola informed CLAM of this transaction at any stage of its consummation.
Therefore, it· is not true that Mr. Abiodun Olusola donated proceeds from the transaction to CLAM. Also, there was never a time that he gave any testimony on the transaction. In furtherance of its· investigations into the issue following a petition by Mrs Okunola, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) visited CLAM on 22nd January, 2014 during the Wednesday deliverance hour programme. It was a purely routine fact finding visit. The Church’s programme was not disrupted and nobody was arrested.

The EFCC has not in any
· way accused CLAM of complicity in this transaction. None of CLAM officials has also been indicted. Abiodun Olusola and Mrs Seun Okunola have also expressly informed the EFCC that this was a purely private transaction between the two of them without CLAM’s involvement.

is one of Nigeria’s reputable prayer and deliverance ministries. In its 16 years of existence, CLAM has never been involved in any shady or dubious transaction. The Senior Pastor of this great Apostolic Ministry, Pastor Wole Oladiyun, is a man of honour and proven integrity and will never be involved in anything fraudulent.

With the
· submission above, we hereby dissociate CLAM from whatever transaction or case going on between Abiodun Olusola and Mrs Okunola.

Please refer further enquiries to the undersigned.

Thank you.

Pastor Tade Adewakun, Director of Media, CLAM”, their response.

We’re still investigating the story and we shall get to the root of the matter especially as it unfolds from EFCC office.

Pastor Sam Adeyemi Fights Daystar Board Over Private Jet Acquisition

The leadership of Day Star Christian Center under Pastor Samuel Adeyemi is encountering some turbulence; at least this is what inside sources at the church filtered out to National Enquirer.  Pastor Sam as he’s fondly addressed by fans turned a year older on Monday 3RD of February 2014 and this we gathered is not unconnected to the reason the pastor and some of his board members are having issues.

According to an impeccable source, the pastor had actually disclosed his desire to acquire a private jet as his birthday gift, a request that didn’t go the way of some of his board members because of the expenses the church had undergone in the year ended 2013. 

Pastor Sam is said to be unyielding and his alibi we gathered is because majority of his contemporaries are proud owners of the fleet which makes ministration and motivational speaking, one of their strongest attributes easy overseas.

The source also added that the man of God already have offers from one or two international companies that are willing to sell their Jets for more sophisticated ones and Pastor Sam is not going to miss the offer especially because its considerably affordable.

Pastor Sam we further gathered has been eyeing either Jet Hawker 900XP which is estimated to be worth $20m (N3.2b), the type owned by billionaires Dr. Kashim and Sir Aremu Johnson and Gulfstream G450, which is estimated to be $15m around (N2.4b) same type owned by Bishop Oyedepo. The soft spoken preacher has been alleged to be secretly window shopping for either of these two fleets if the board members agree.

It will however be recalled that the cosmopolitan pastor once told a gathering at the Annual Excellence in Leadership Conference, ELC organised by the church sometimes in 2012 that “I do not own a private jet,” adding that the media were just speculating what was not. He described the news of his ownership of a jet as “rumour that has been there for sometime especially in the junk media. “It is becoming a source of concern now that reputable magazines and newspapers are saying the same thing.”

Bizarre! Nollywood Actress, Chika Ike’s Amazing Bi-Sexual Lifestyles Exposed…See Partners’ List

On Their fb walls

Beautiful Nollywood actress, Chika Ike sure cut a picture of a scandal free lady and always preaches to be a born again Christian on her facebook wall even though tongues have been wagging as to the real reason her 5 years old marriage to a boardroom colossus, Tony Ebireri crashed.

It might look like one of those Nollywood’s make-believe stories but people close to Chika Nancy Ike are swearing to high heavens that the Igbo born lady does anything for money including “seeing” men and allegedly same sex.

The dependable source who drew our attention to the fact that, no sooner Chika stormed out of her marriage of 5 years than she began making millions of Naira and relocated to Abuja where she opened a multimillion Naira fashion accessories store after she was pimped for the nation’s No. 3 man, an affair she vehemently denied though.

“It is no longer news that she’s dating Senate President, David Mark, he’s the one that bankrolled her Fancy Nancy Collections and she’s also frolicking with 2 State governors from the South South, one of the governors just gave her millions to go for shopping in Dubai, and this is aside her affair with her manager, Serah Donald.

The role interpreter who was born on the 8th of November, 1985 in Onitsha, Anambra State, we exclusively gathered is serial dating Governors Godswill Akpabio of Cross Rivers and the Delta CEO aside her on and off relationship with the Senate President who’s not too happy she confided in a friend that leaked  it to the media.

Our reliable source confided in National Enquirer that Chika’s manager Serah Onyeacho popularly known as Serah Donald, a nominee of the Exquisite Lady of the year awards ELOY 2013 in the category of Manager/PR of the year is a lesbian known in the movie industry and her partner is the pretty actress.  The duo goes virtually everywhere together including abroad and those in the know are said to be baffled on why an unassuming lady like Chika would be involved in lesbianism act. Serah Donald who also doubles as a movie producer recently starred the actress as the lead character in her latest film titled The Barrow Pusher under her production company named Serah Donald Productions.  

The latest of their numerous trips abroad we gathered was their January 2014 adventure to the United Arab Emirate UAE Dubai. The duo was lodged at the Emirate Palace Hotel, Abu Dhabi which is said to be one of the most expensive hotels in Dubai. They spent days going from one mall to another shopping and posting pictures on Instagram and twitter. We shall keep tracking them.
