The Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode says he weeps for Nigeria because of the way things have degenerated in the country.

He said on Monday that in the last few days happenings in the nation called for weeping.

“First is the discovery of a slave camp in Kaduna where, in the name of Koranic school, 500 children are incarcerated, chained up, tortured and subjected to sexual abuse.

“Second is the abduction and selling into slavery by ISWA “bandits” of 25 Nigerians from Katsina in Burkina Faso.

“The “bandits,” said they sold them into slavery in a foreign land because their relatives in Nigeria “could not afford to pay for their ransom.”

“Worse of all is the fact that, according to media reports, those ISWA “bandits” now control several towns and communities in Katsina state,” he lamented.


According to him, “Third, a man is arrested at the airport when he arrived into Nigeria and was detained for a few hours simply because he wore a shirt which had “we are all Biafrans” written on it. Can things get any worse than this? I weep for my country.”

When has it become a crime to make a referral for colleagues, Saidi Balogun shared more light on the social media troll alleged by his Junior Colleague Actress Tayo Sogbola


A man named IDRIS BELLO came to me a few weeks ago and introduced a Hajj trip package. I wasn't interested initially until he showed me a copy of my colleague IBRAHEEM  CHATTA'S advert. I was convinced knowing how well Chatta is very versed on religion and Islamic matters, so I decided to give it a shot.

A few days later, he pleaded with tears in his eyes that I should get some of my other colleagues in the industry to buy into the traveling packages, he further explained that he had invested 20million naira already on the project and he was running into a huge loss.







His story seemed convincing, so I decided to encourage him by introducing MUSTAPHA  SHOLAGBADE (versed in Islam)and SHOTAYO SHOGBOLA to his package.

During his birthday at Oriental hotels Victoria Island, where he proposed to his fiancee in the presence of my self  Lateef Oladimeji, Ibraheem Chatta, Shotayo, Mustapha.

 The gathering gave me a total conviction that the man is up to the task. I felt that if he could bring us all under one roof in one day, he might be able to pull bigger jobs. I guess I was wrong.

 I decided to run an advert for his package which he paid like 0.5% of the deal and complained there was little or no turnout,  I believed him and took further steps.

Before I knew it he had collected money from these people, he equally collected two hundred thousand naira from me when he claimed he had problem asides two other people which he promised to give free trip from Ibadan.

 Approximately, he took over four hundred thousand naira (400k) even after he had promised them a free trip, the two people came to me that they had no money for international passport, which I fund them from my pocket to do the intl passport, aside that, I also bare the cost of there trip from Ibadan to Lagos and the hotels with feeding on account of my goodwill.


After I had done all these expenses, Idris ran to me again, that he had issues he wants to solve, my self and Ibrahim Chatta came to his rescue and I am also aware Ibraheem also borrowed him 200k.

Along the line, Shotayo said she was no longer interested. But a week after I heard that the people  Shotayo told earlier paid, which left me to confuse and shocked.

Unknowingly we got to the boarding plane only to find out that the booking he claimed he had made was not reflecting. He didn't show up with the two other people's passport/Visa either. Right there, we were left with two options either to report to the authorities or escalate the matter via social media platforms.

 My self and Ibrahim Chatta decided to let the matter rest and let  God judge our actions according to intentions while we ponder on the next line of action. But later we thought of other victims that were involved who may not be willing to take such step because of the amount involved.

So, we set two options for ourselves either to go as a group to complain to the Authorities which others obliged or individual take it up and once there is a need to report to the Authorities we all make ourselves available.

Mustapha Sholagbade told me Sotayo had reported the matter to the police and she had collected a letter from Higher Authorities, which make me at peace that all is in control,

And each time Shotayo reports me to people, I try as much as possible to call but she declined to speak to me and never returned my calls. I don't hold this against her because I reasoned she might be angry. I was totally alarmed to see my name being dragged on social media for sins I never committed.


When has it become a crime to make a referral for colleagues? When we know that referral is the
life wire of entertainers. My intention for bringing my colleagues on board was clear and noble as I never knew it would end this way.

Nevertheless, necessary investigations are still going on and we will alert the public as things unfold.

In conclusion
I will advise the public to beware of fake journalists who for their selfish interests do copy and paste without proper investigation. Only God knows how many lives and career have been ruined to such a heinous act.

In God I trust!

SAIDI BALOGUN FINALLY BREAKS HIS SILENCE OVER AN ALLEGED SCAM SCANDAL

The Nollywood actor, Saidi Balogun finally shared more light on the social media troll alleged by his Junior Colleague Actress Tayo Sogbola attempting to drag Saidi Balogun name in the Mud by accusing him of introducing her to a scammer, named IDRIS BELLO. 



In the recent chats with Saidi Balogun by Ara news for investigating the Story, Saidi Balogun responded that he wasn't involved in any scam rather, he was also a victim of the Scam and he would have ignored the issue but he realized keeping quiet would further fuel the misconceptions.

Read Saidi Balogun Response Below

Firstly, I wasn't involved in any scam rather, I'm equally a victim. This is not a decision to hate or indict anyone but to clear things up.


A man named IDRIS BELLO came to me a few weeks ago and introduced a Hajj trip package. I wasn't interested initially until he showed me a copy of my colleague IBRAHEEM  CHATTA'S advert. I was convinced knowing how well Chatta is very versed on religion and Islamic matters, so I decided to give it a shot.

EDUCATION DOES NOT DETERMINE SUCCESS - Prophet Israel Oladele Ogundipe.

In this article prophet Israel Oladele Emphasize more on why people condemn themselves because of Lack of Education..




"WHY DO YOU CONDEMN YOURSELF?? - 

I have observed and come to realise how that lots of people condemn themselves by reason of lack of education and blame their anti success life on their weak level of acquired academics.




 Don't get me wrong! Education is key and paves way for success; but it doesn't  guarantee one's elevation & success in life. 

Success on the other hand, is given to a prepared mind. You can be educated and not having a prepared mind to succeed, that's why so many scholars answer to the authority of their boss who is a non-scholar[a drop out

 You need to make up your mind to succeed irrespective of your educational background,  you have to be success hungry, think differently, cut off unfruitful friends.

 Start having thoughts of ''I CAN' and silence that voice of "I CANNOT". 

You have a lot of greatness inside of you that's awaiting manifestation. And finally, it doesn't matter whether you are educated or not, you just have to make-up your mind to succeed and plan your life towards attaining success; I assure by the grace of God, nothing is going stop you if only you start taking action step towards succeeding. 

Don't let nobody pull you down by discouraging you, instead, develop yourself and let your good instinct lead you.

 Remember, SUCCESS IS YOUR BIRTHRIGHT.

We hope you Enjoy reading this article and don't forget to comment...
