Maj. Gen. Emmanuel Atewe, who once served Nigeria as the Commander of the military Joint Task Force, Operation Pulo Shield, in the Niger Delta before his retirement, is now standing trial for allegedly diverting N8.5 billion between September 2014 and May 2015, in a new revelation made by a witness. Rtd. Maj. Gen Emmanuel was accused of giving N35m to the Living Faith Church, also known as Winners Chapel.
Testifying at the court yesterday was Nkem Ahidjo a the trial witness, who disclosed that his relationship with Maj. Gen. Emmanuel Atewe, grew after they met in Abuja some years ago where they worshipped at the Aso villa church.
Ahidjo disclosed that he even attends night vigils at the retired General’s home. He said that upon resuming as the head of the JTF command in Bayelsa, the retired general called him over to his home and asked him if he had any account where some monies can be lodged.
Ahidjo told the court that Maj. Gen. Emmanuel Atewe told him he would be transferring some monies into the company accounts and that once he receives the transaction, he should get in touch with him for further instructions. Atewe is standing trial alongside a former Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, Patrick Akpobolokemi; Kime Engozu, Josephine Otuaga and six companies namely
Jagan Trading Company Ltd;
Jagan Global Services Ltd;
Al-Nald Ltd; Paper Warehouse Ltd;
Eastpoint Integrated Services Ltd and
De-Newlink Integrated Services Ltd,
He invited me to Bayelsa and I went. He told me that the Federal Government gave JTF a grant for security and building of barracks and if I have any company into which account money could be paid. And being somebody I knew very well from Guard Commander to Major General, I provided the companies that I listed earlier.
Each time I received it (money), I would call a BDC operator, named Jimoh. I knew him before this time. He would change the money, I would pay him the naira equivalent and take the dollars. Once I changed it, I would wait for instruction either from Major General Atewe or Mr. Kime. That was what we continued to do until the end of the transaction in 2015,”
Ahidjo said that he doesn’t know what the money transferred to Winners Chapel was used for, told the court that he received a total of N4,915,163,103 within the period, out of which about N4.1bn were converted to dollars and delivered to Engozu, who in turn issued a receipt for each payment based on Atewe’s instruction. Ahidjo added that of the remaining amount, he was instructed by Atewe to transfer N35m to Winners’ Chapel, N103m to INP Ltd, N170m to First Investment Ltd, N99m to Lord Fem Ltd, N88m to Ocean Gas and N297m to Cisco Nobot.

KenPoly graduate who killed himself, cheated on his girlfriend
Shocking news of a graduate of Ken Saro-Wiwa Polytechnic (Kenpoly), Charles Orji who killed himself over a breakup with his girlfriend broke the internet last week.
The sad news was shared by a Twitter user who wrote,
“A Graduate From The Department Of Estate Management KenPoly Named Charles Orji Has Reportedly Committed Suicide This Morning After his girlfriend dumped him!!! Na wao!”.

As of last week, the reason behind the break-up wasn’t not know until Charles’s family member revealed the unknown. Charles cheated on his girlfriend and killed himself because his girlfriend refused to continue with the relationship.
The family member wrote,
“Charles I’m mad at you for what you’ve done and what you put my sister and our family through, we all loved you for who you were to her and to us. This isn’t the first time you’ve tried to kill yourself for a girl you love, but why make rejoice take the blame for your suicide this time around?
“You weren’t faithful to her but you claimed to love her, you confessed to sleeping with her close friend and even other girls, you weren’t faithful but she forgave you, even though she decided not to put up with your unfaithfulness anymore. You made such a rash decision drinking 3 bottles of sniper just because of the text she sent to you, didn’t even wait to talk to her, when you were rushed to the hospital, she had to send 20k to your people for hospital bills, money she doesn’t even have… before you died you told people that she is to be blamed for your death, now on social media people are cussing her out because of you, your family is threatening her, she’s not safe anymore.
charley, you’ve brought her pain, and no one is even giving her a listening ear… you don’t do that to someone you love… I’ve said enough, let me not say anymore.
“Rest In Peace”.
