Ghanaian footballer, Solomon arrested for killing his mother and sister in Italy

A Ghanaian footballer Solomon Nyantakyi, has been arrested in Italy for the alleged murder of his mother and sister on Tuesday night according to Citi Sports.

The former footballer with Italian side Parma is the major suspect in the murder of his mother and young sister, who were stabbed to death at their home on Tuesday.

Solomon was arrested in Milan as he attempted to flee on Wednesday morning although the incident took place in their home in Via San Leonardo, the outskirts of Parma, which is a multi-ethnic neighborhood where many Ghanaians live.

The suspect’s elder brother Raymond Nyantakyi, 25, returned home from work around 9pm on Tuesday to discover the gruesome murder of Patience Nfum, 45, and little sister Magdalene Nyantakyi, 11.

When Raymond opened the door he found a sad scene with blood everywhere, on the floor, on walls and on the furniture in their sixth-floor apartment.

Solomon was touted as one of the rising stars in Italian football. The 21-year-old played for Serie D for Imolese Calcio last season but suddenly stopped and joined bad company, noted for committing serious crimes in Italy.

Chief orders corpse of buried man be exhumed for being disobedient when he was alive

Chief orders corpse of buried man be exhumed for being disobedient when he was alive

Kofi Emmanuel’s body was ordered by chief of Assin Dansame township in Ghana, Nana Twum Barima V, to be exhumed from the cemetery on Monday 26th June , a day after his burial, on the grounds that the deceased flouted community’s rule by abstaining from communal labour when he was alive.

It was gathered that the Chief’ argument was that since the deceased refused to obey the laws of the land, then he does not deserve to be buried on the same soil but elsewhere hence the exhumation.

Ighanaian reports that the corpse of Kofi has been dumped at the town’s lorry station after it was initially left along a footpath in the town.

6 Nigerians arrested in Ghana over alleged rape of Facebook friend

6 Nigerians; Chimaroke, Ike Amechi, Anthony Emmanuel, Godfred Alex, Kayode Ayodele and Opious Owner, have been paraded at the Accra Regional Police Commander of Operations, for reportedly kidnapping and raping a lady who the main suspect, Chimaroke, have been interacting with on Facebook.

According to Chief Superintendent Kwesi Ofori, the 21-year-old lady, Ashaley Botwe, was convinced to come to Chimaraoke’s house, near Accra, where he lived with the five accomplices, for an Eid-ul Fitr present. When she got there, Chimaroke, instead of giving her the present, asked her to sleep with him.

Botwe, however, refused to do so. Kwesi said: “Chimaroke made advances and when she resisted, he smashed her phone and raped her. Fortunately for her, she had another phone on her, which she used to call her brothers, who later called the police to go and rescue her,”

Stonebwoy’s alleged ex-girlfriend reacts to his wedding, feels used and dumped

Stonebwoy’s alleged ex-girlfriend reacts to his wedding, feels used and dumped

A lady claiming to be Ghanaian musician, Stonebwoy’s ex-girlfriend is accusing him of failing to marry her after he proposed.

The lady who identifies herself as Betty Ama Fiona, a resident of Tema, claims that she was issued stern warnings by Stonebwoy’s colleagues to stay off the wedding.

Read what she wrote below as published on GHPAGE;

“I’ve read and seen the many articles you’ve done on the dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy’s marriage. I appreciate your good works. Your blog- became the good source to some of us to feed our eyes with what was going on as I was given a stern warning by Stonebwoy’s crew member not to come there.

I have been crying since I saw the date of his wedding was published on your site and still can’t hold back my tears when I saw his wedding pictures yesterday.
I met Stonebwoy when I got the chance to feature in one of his videos.I must say, He is among the few celebrities I’ve met who carries himself very well. Respects himself and those he works with. Except on few occasions, he goes overboard when he gets angry.
To cut a long story short, he proposed to me after the 3rd day of the video shoot and we started dating in 2014.He wanted us to remain private as according to him didn’t want the media attention on us and I think he’s good at how he does it is just that he did to me and everyone with the secret relationship with the Doctor, Louisa is painful
We made love on several occasions, and though he didn’t promise marriage —what I find disturbing is why he didn’t even tell me about his marriage to the Doctor.
He cut off contacts suddenly and within a week I read he is getting married to the Doctor. Thought it was not true. Made several attempts to reach him but to no avail, until I finally saw the pictures on your blog Ghpage.com yesterday.
I watched the video and looked at the pictures with tears in my eyes. No wonder, he heavily guarded the premises with security. No chance was given to likes of us to enter.
I know people will say a lot of things about me for writing this to you.But Editor, this is the only time I feel I can make my case known or share my feelings.
There are a lot I did and planned with Stonebwoy and now I feel he used me and perhaps married the doctor for his own peculiar reasons.
Can you publish this for me for Stonebwoy to answer why he didn’t tell me or did this to me? Nevertheless, I still wish them a happy marriage. That’s life!”

A 20 year old Ghanaian girl Priscilla Berfi, recently set her boyfriend’s house at Deduako in the Oforikrom Constituency of the Ashanti Region ablaze for allegedly cheating on her.

Pulse Ghana reports that there were no casualties recorded. The boyfriend, Kofi Adusei narrating the incident said he had ceased taking care of Priscilla, who is pregnant due to her bad attitude and lack of respect towards him.

He said Priscilla visited him on the night of the incident but they had a misunderstanding so he decided not to spend the night in the same room with her.

According to him, he left the room and went to sleep in another where a second girlfriend was waiting for him.

He said : ‘While relaxing in the other room, I perceived smoke and so I thought she had taken some of my clothing out to burn them. I really wasn’t bothered, but later I heard shouts and calls that my room is on fire, we rushed to see the room in flames with Priscilla nowhere to be found,’

The suspect has since been arrested by Kwame Nkrumah of Science and Technology (KNUST) District Police Command to help with further investigations.

Father who had anal sex with his 3-year-old daughter and son wanted by police

The Ghanaian Police launched a manhunt for a 42-year-old father and driver,Kwame Asiamah, who is currently on the run, after reportedly confessing to having anal sex and also vaginal sex with his 3-year-old daughter.

It was gathered that the incident allegedly happened in Asenua near Mamponteng in the Ashanti region.

The mother of the little girl, Emelia Asiamah, who noticed that her daughter experienced pains each time she walks or urinates, upon interrogation was told by her daughter that her husband/father inserts his ‘manhood’ both in her vagina and anus when she’s not at home.

Ultimatefmonline reports that the lady alleged that her daughter’s confession didn’t surprise her, as her husband reportedly had anal sex with their second boy who was almost three years old in 2015.

However according to her, she couldn’t report to relevant authorities, because she feared her daughter and son will be stigmatized.

The evil deed came to limelight after the victims dad confessed engaging in anal sex with the child, on Kumasi-based Trust TV after he claimed to have visited more than 5 deities in the region.

“The incident happened two weeks ago, but when I questioned my husband about it, he denied and ran away from the house, claiming he couldn’t have had sex with his own daughter.

I knew he was lying to me, I don’t know why the man I married has turned into a paedophile. My daughter has not been able to attend school since the incident, how can a father do this to his own daughter?, I thank God that he has publicly confessed, but I have reported the case to the police” Emelia said

Emily

Emily, born Queenstar Anaafi, is one of the leading characters on the YOLO TV Series. Queenstar’s role involves a young beautiful rich girl, well-raised by responsible and caring parents, turning her into a well-groomed adolescent.

‘If she’s out, she’s with either Cyril or at the Youth Corner, and her parents are very involved with her, so Emily in her own character is not a bad girl.’

In the YOLO TV series (Seasons 1 and 2), Emily is pursued by Cyril (considered next) and eventually falls for her first love, although in upcoming Season 3, their relationship turns to fall on hard rocks. In Season 2, Cyril takes a turn away from Emily and focuses on a beautiful student he tutors.

Things go south, and Cyril ends up head-on with highly-classified rhetorical questions from Emily.

Series relationship aside, Emily relates how being a part of the cast for YOLO has helped her get in touch with her inner personality.

In her own words:

“I used to be a very shy, reserved person, but because of my involvement, my interaction with the people on set, I’ve been able to overcome this.”

Indeed, asked to play the role of the rich kid on the block comes with a lot of perks and requires getting up to speed to being what the writers and directors envision for the character. Emily plays her role well, and for many, concentrating on the show gets a little bit harder than usual sometimes, as Emily’s beauty and smartness keep swaying them.

In the show, Emily represents, to some extent, the exact opposite of Drogba, as the cautious, careful and forward-thinking adolescent, who in many situations, weighs her options before taking a step, especially in issues relating to her relationship with Cyril and her love life.

 

Cyril

Cyril, born as Aaron Adatsi, remains the center of the YOLO TV series and happens to be one of the characters tossed about in many situations, from relationships to hanging out with friends.

Cyril, in YOLO, was raised by Auntie Enyonam (discussed below). Auntie Enyonam learned her lessons the hard way, after getting in a relationship with Pusher and ended up being pregnant.

Unfortunately, Cyril grows up in a divided family, with his biological dad being an auto-mechanic and mom, a boutique manageress.

If an occasional visit by Cyril’s dad was welcome, the whole twist between Enyonam and Pusher wouldn’t have been, as portrayed in the show, tense and unpredictable.

Cyril sets his eyes on this young, beautiful girl from a relatively wealthy family, namely, Emily. He strives to win Emily’s heart, going as far as succumbing to gravity and going on his knees to apologize to Emily for a bad move taken.

Cyril: “Personally, I think YOLO is full of morals. Basically, YOLO is adolescent reproductive health, and I think the target is the youth

Although his apology takes effect and starts curing Emily’s heart, the likely ‘placebo’ effect she feels for her first love wouldn’t last as Cyril can’t help it but entangles himself with a student of his.

As Richard Castle would put it, Cyril is ‘ruggedly handsome’, which makes him a worthwhile prey for many young ladies looking for a strong, smart and handsome guy with great brains to be by their side.

Pictures from Ghana’s new president Nana Akufo-Addo’s first day at work

Pictures from Ghana’s new president Nana Akufo-Addo’s first day at work 

The new Ghanaian President, Nana Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Monday morning, the 9th day of January, 2017 started work at the presidential palace by first inspecting a guard of honour mounted by the Ghana Armed Forces.

Nana Addo arrived at the Flagstaff House at exactly 9am. See pictures below:

New President Of Ghana Plagiarised the Speeches of Ex-US Presidents allegedly – Video

Nana Akufo-Addo, the newly sworn-in Ghanaian President has been accused of plagiarising a portion of former American president George Bush’s 2001 inaugural speech.

New President Of Ghana Plagiarised the Speeches of Ex-US Presidents allegedly - Video

Akufo-Addo was sworn in as the 54th president of Ghana, a country described as the “gold standard for democracy in Africa” taking over from John Dramani Mahama. But the new president’s inauguration was blighted by the accusation of directly lifting from Bush’s own inauguration speech.

In his speech, Bush said: “I ask you to be citizens: citizens, not spectators; citizens, not subjects; responsible citizens building communities of service and a nation of character.”

Akufo-Addo said: “I ask you to be citizens: citizens, not spectators; citizens, not subjects; responsible citizens building your communities and our nation. Let us work until the work is done.”

Another portion where Nana Addo urged the citizenry to believe in their strength in tackling challenges seems to have been lifted from Bill Clinton’s 1993 inaugural speech. Per checks, the only difference in the statement was the replacement of ‘Americans’ with ‘Ghanaians’.

“Though our challenges are fearsome, so are our strengths. Ghanaians have ever been a restless, questing, hopeful people…”

This is not the first time West African presidents would be accused of plagiarising American presidents’ speeches.

In September 2016, President Muhammadu Buhari came under fire from critics after admitting part of his “Change Begins With Me” speech was copied from US President Barack Obama’s 2008 victory speech. His aides put the blame on an unnamed “overzealous speech writer.”

In a speech as he took office, the President said “I will not let the good people of Ghana down.”

“I pledge to do my best to move this country to higher level of development; I will not let the good people of Ghana down. We should move on to deepen our democracy.”

The 72-year-old president also promised to work with Ghana’s neighbours “to ensure stability on the African continent.”

Akufo, a lawyer who served as Ghana’s foreign minister in 2008, vowed to build on the West African country’s economic success.

Akufo-Addo got 53.85 per cent of the votes in Ghana’s September election to defeat incumbent John Mahama who got 44 per cent of the votes.

The peaceful transfer of power from ex-president Mahama is highly affected.

Fourteen African heads of state including Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari attended the ceremony in Accra.

Ghanaian president-elect, Nana Akufo-Addo, has appointed Saratu Atta as a personal assistant as he ramps up activities ahead of his inauguration Saturday.

Nana Akufo-Addo, Ghana’s President-Elect Appoints Fani-Kayode’s Ex-Wife As His PA

Ms. Atta, 53, is a former wife of Nigerian politician, Femi Fani-Kayode. She has served as an executive aide to Mr. Akufo-Addo since 2009, a statement on the president-elect’s website said Wednesday.

She is amongst the three women of a total 12 appointees so far named by Mr. Akufo-Addo, but the statement did not provide further details about her new role.

The two other women are Akosua Osei-Opare, Chief of Staff to the President, and Clara Tia, a presidential staffer.

A brief citation of Ms. Atta said that she is a graduate of the University of Warwick, UK, and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Politics and International Studies.

She worked as a Securities Trader at First Securities Discount House in Lagos, Nigeria from 1993 to 1997, and went on to establish her own security printing company in Lagos.

She is a member of the New Patriotic Party, one of the two major political parties in Ghana, and served as the party’s campaign secretary since 2008.

She married Mr. Fani-Kayode, Nigeria’s former Minister of Aviation, in 1987 and bore him a female child named Folake in the same year. They parted ways around 1989 when Mr. Fani-Kayode found a new wife, Yemisi Wada.

MMM blamed for financial misery in Ghana – Details

MMM blamed for financial misery in Ghana – Details

People in Ghana have lost money by investing in a Russian-backed Ponzi scheme, Marvodi Mondial Movement or MMM which was introduced in Ghana after it was banned in Nigeria.

MMM blamed for financial misery in Ghana - Details

Ghana’s financial sector is currently struggling to recover from a major financial crisis involving Ponzi investment schemes. Millions of Ghanaians have been denied access to their savings after investing in micro-finance companies. They had been promised huge returns on their capital over a short period of time, but now they’re pleading with Ghanaian President John Mahama for a refund of their investments.
“Many people are dead and many are on their sick bed, because of this money [scandal]. It’s not easy for us, Mr. President. Pay our money to us because the Bank of Ghana is under you,” said businessman Haruna Seidu.
These schemes were at the center of the presidential election campaign in Ghana. The incoming New Patriotic Party government has promised to reimburse all who have lost money with these investments. Ghana’s central bank has also revised its rules to discourage such Ponzi schemes in future. Its deputy governor Johnson Asiamah said they were also receiving help from Germany on how to better protect small investors.

“With the passage of the Ghana deposit protection bill, I am happy to inform you that the Bank of Ghana in collaboration with the German government will soon establish a deposit protection system in Ghana for the first time in our history, This will ensure protection for small depositors and enhance the safety of the financial system,” said Asiamah.
New scheme
Reports of a new investment scheme called the Marvodi Mondial Movement have recently emerged under which clients are proimsed a return of 30 percent in less than a month.
The Russian-owned scheme been banned in some African countries including Nigeria. Financial analyst Osei Amankwah says it should be thoroughly investigated.
“The bank of Ghana shouldn’t allow this to cascade. Obviously if it was bad for Nigeria, it’s not going to be any good for Ghana,” he said.
The Marvodi Mondial Movement said on Twitter that their scheme in Ghana was a simple system in which a community of voluntary members provide and receive help. However, some Ghanaians are wary of these schemes.
“I would not be interested in it because I am afraid of losing my money at the end,” said Bernice Asiedu, a resident of Accra.
The Marvodi Mondial Movement isn’t officially licensed to operate in Ghana and officials have said that they will launch a probe into the group.

Adama Barrow Will Not Be Inaugurated Until… – Jammeh

Gambian President Yahya Jammeh has insisted that he would not leave office in January despite his defeat in an election this month.

He said on television “Justice must be done and the only way justice can be done is to reorganise the election so that every Gambian votes. That’s the only way we can resolve the matter peacefully and fairly,”

“Unless the court decides the case, there will be no inauguration (of president-elect Adama Barrow) on the 19 January,”

See the 10 countries of the world that banned Christmas

See the 10 countries of the world that banned Christmas

See the 10 countries of the world that banned Christmas

1.England

Oliver Cromwell overthrew the monarchy and oversaw the execution of King Charles I during the English Civil War, but for many the fiery Puritan leader is better known for banning mince pies.

Christmas and the celebration of saints’ days was discouraged – if not prohibited – in England between 1647 and 1660 as the country was ruled by a puritanical movement that considered the feast day ‘giving liberty to carnal and sensual delights’.

They mandated that shops had to remain open and cracked down on celebrations, leading to violent clashes on the streets of London and other cities. Life returned to normal after Cromwell’s death in 1658 and the Restoration two years later.

2. Brunei

Brunei banned public celebrations of Christmas and imposed fines and jail terms for those caught celebrating the festival in 2014, an edict that was reiterated in 2015 by religious leaders writing in local newspaper, the Brunei Times.
“These enforcement measures are … intended to control the act of celebrating Christmas excessively and openly, which could damage the aqidah [beliefs] of the Muslim community,” they said.
It specifically banned the wearing of Christmas costumes such as Santa hats, the lighting of candles, the signing of religious songs and putting up decorations such as Christmas trees. The Sultan of Brunei, a billionaire who owns hotels across the world, introduced a strict interpretation of Sharia law on the territory last two years.

3. Tajikistan

The reclusive former Soviet republic country’s education ministry issued a decree in December outlawing Christmas trees, the exchange of presents, fireworks and festive meals.

Sky News reported that while the restrictions in 2015 are the strongest yet, anti-Christmas regulations have been getting increasingly restrictive over the last few years in the Muslim-majority country.

In 2014, the Tajik government banned Father Christmas and three years earlier a man dressed as Santa was stabbed to death in the capital on New Year’s Eve. Tajikistan also bans Halloween and in 2013 and 2014 police rounded up revellers dressed as zombies and vampires.

4. Saudi Arabia

Little surprise that Saudi Arabia, a theocracy governed by the strict Wahhabi doctrine of Islam, is not a big fan of Christmas.

In the past, expatriates had quietly celebrated in the comfort of their own homes (and will likely continue to) but rumours of illicit Christmas parties prompted state media in January to reiterate that celebrating the festival was not allowed in the kingdom.

It went further by forbidding Muslims from greeting non-Muslims at Christmas, with a Saudi scholar saying:
“If they celebrate the birth of God’s son and you greet them… it means you endorse their faith.”
In 2015, it emerged that some expatriates in Saudi Arabia were going further, tweeting pictures of their Christmas trees and children dressed for the occasion.

5. North Korea

Back in 2013 North and South Korea almost went to war after the latter erected a giant Christmas tree at the border of the two countries.

North Korean state media said that the huge Christmas tree – which was lit up in a town close to the border and clearly visible from the North – was an act of psychological warfare.

North Korea does not officially ban Christianity but is ranked among the most hostile countries in the world towards Christians.

To complicate matters, December 24th – Christmas Eve – is celebrated in North Korea as the birthday of the Sacred Mother of the Revolution, Kim Jong Il’s mum.

6. Albania

Albania not only banned Christmas but religion as a whole in 1967, making the country the first and only constitutionally atheist state.

The ban on any and all religious worship was only lifted after the fall of the Communist regime in 1990, when both Christians and Muslims were able to practice for the first time.

During the Communist years many priests and religious leaders were rounded up and jailed, but the pious celebrated Christmas and Easter nonetheless in private. They would have cake or chicken at meal times as a way of marking the days.

7. USA

Puritans, up to their usual tricks, attempted to ban Christmas when they arrived in the New World in 1620. They branded the festival ‘Foolstide’ and decreed that the only religious day that should be celebrated was the Sabbath.

The Puritans managed to keep the ban going until the middle of the 18th century, at one point even arresting the Sir Edmund Andros, the Governor of Massachusetts, when he tried to sponsor a Christmas service.

8 CUBA

Fidel Castro announced the Cuban government as atheist as soon as it took power in 1959 but it wasn’t until 1969 that the Communist leader actually banned Christmas, as he wanted the population to stop partying and start working on the sugar harvest.

It was Pope John Paul II who eventually persuaded the now late Cuban leader to lift his ban during a visit in 1998, when Castro agreed to make the day a national holiday.

9. Somalia

Somalia banned Christmas in 2013 when a directive from the Ministry of Justice and Religious Affairs stated that no Christian festivals could be held in Somalia.

Sheikh Ali Dhere, the country’s director of religious matters, called a press conference a week before Christmas to make the announcement.
“We alert fellow Muslims in Somalia that some festivities to mark Christian days will take place around the world in this week. It is prohibited to celebrate those days in this country,” he said.
It was the first time that the Somali government had banned Christmas since the country’s government collapsed in 1991. In 2015, the government in Mogadishu went further, banning New Year’s Eve celebrations and ordering the police and army to disperse any celebrations it found.

10. China

Christmas and Christianity as a whole were banned in China after 1949 but you would not know that if you were to visit during the festive season today.

China goes mad for Christmas, and it is not just Chinese Christians that get in on the act – while Christmas is not a national holiday it is a widely celebrated festival day, akin to New Year, with fireworks and fancy dress in abundance.

While Santa Claus costumes and hats are a common sight on the streets of Shanghai or Beijing during Christmas, other costumes are less traditional – devil horns, for example, are sold widely to mark the day.

Couples also like to treat Christmas as akin to Valentine’s Day, exchanging gifts and going out for romantic meals.
Local media reported in 2012 that, like in the West, the Chinese use Christmas an opportunity to hit the shops, with Christmas Eve the biggest shopping night of the year for some retailers.

Gambian President, Yahya Jammeh Says He Will Not Step Down 

Gambian President, Yahya Jammeh said he would not step down. He also condemned mediation by West African regional bloc ECOWAS that aims at getting him to leave power after he lost the election to Adama Barrow.

Gambia's President, Jammeh Heads To Supreme Court, Headed By A Nigerian

The comments on state television late on Tuesday, the 20th day of November, 2016 were a hardening of the veteran president’s position after days in which hopes mounted he could be persuaded to hand over power at the end of his mandate on Jan. 18, when Barrow is due to be inaugurated.

“I am not a coward. My right cannot be intimidated and violated. This is my position. Nobody can deprive me of that victory except the Almighty Allah,” Jammeh said.

“Already the ECOWAS meeting was a formality. Before they came, they had already said Jammeh must step down. I will not step down,” he said.

Jammeh initially accepted the results of an election whose outcome was seen across Africa as a moment of hope. He is accused by human rights groups of the detention, torture and killing of perceived opponents during his 22-year rule.

On Dec. 9, he reversed his position and said he would challenge in the country’s Supreme Court the results of an election he said was riddled with irregularities.

Ugandan court orders Interpol to arrest Wizkid and his manager

Wizkid is likely on his way to Ugandan prison after he failed to perform at a concert in Uganda on the 3rd day of December, 2016 which he was paid for.

“Face TV through its lawyer Fred Muwema of Muwema and Company Advocates has obtained a warrant of arrest for the singer, who allegedly failed to honour a US$60, 000 contractual obligations to perform at a concert in Uganda on December 3.
The warrant, issued by the Buganda Road Court, has directed the International Police (Interpol) and Uganda Police to arrest Wizkid, the ‘Ojuelegba’ hitmaker.
