Former Minister of State for Petroleum, Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi has denied being involved in stripping some of his hotel staff naked over a missing money.

 

Recall that the Minister made headlines after being accused of arresting four of his hotel staff and stripping them naked for allegedly stealing N5,000. The four staff of the hotel have been identified as Gloria Oguzie, Victor Ephraim, Rosslyn Okiemute and Achibong Precious. It was also alleged that the hotel management forcefully made some withdrawals from their bank accounts with their ATM cards before the police took them away in a waiting van.

However commenting on the incident at a press conference held at his country home in Oginibo, Ughelli South council area of Delta state, Gbagi stressed that the said staff were not employees of the hotel but “freelancers”. He added that there are records to back this up.

 

He further alleged that his political detractors who are out to truncate his plans to contest for the 2023 gubernatorial race in the state, are behind the trending video and photos.

“There was nothing as you have read, that happened. The people you saw in those pictures are not staff of my hotel. Legally, documentarily, they are not staff of the hotel. They are freelancers.

“Were you to do a forensic analysis of the video for my body on those pictures, and you find me there, I will resign from politics.

“I invited the Police from Ebrumede to take them. I will never descend to do such (strip people naked). It was politically motivated. I will not strip anybody’s daughter naked or strip any person.

“This, to me, is just a distraction. I am resolute, I am contesting in 2023. Let God punish me if I touched any of the girls or was involved in their stripping. I am prepared. I know what they are planning.”

Refugees fleeing war were allegedly tortured by police on the Croatian border.

 

Men were forced to strip, lie on top of each other naked and were beaten by men in black uniforms, according to reports received by the Danish Refugee Council (DRC), a nonprofit humanitarian organisation.

 

The victims believed their attackers were Croatian police officers, according to Mirror Online.

 

The DRC has also recorded two reports of “severe sexual abuse” after a police operation to push refugees back into neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Charlotte Slente, secretary general of the DRC, said: “The testimonies that the Danish Refugee Council has collected from victims of pushbacks are horrifying.

 

“Multiple reports, from different groups of people, of different nationalities – more than 75 persons in one week – who have all independently reported inhumane treatment, savage beatings and even sexual abuse.

 

“We need to see action to put a stop to the systematic use of violence.

“Treating human beings like this, inflicting severe pain and causing unnecessary suffering, irrespective of their migratory status, cannot and should not be accepted by any European country, or by any EU institution.”

 

Ms Slente called for independent border monitoring systems to be implemented to prevent abuses, along with proper investigations to take place.

A Brazilian prisoner nicknamed ‘Lucifer’ has been accused of murdering 48 other inmates during his 25 years behind bars.

Marcos Paulo da Silva, a thief-turned-serial killer was first jailed for petty theft at the age of 18 in 1995, before he became a vicious killer. He is known to cut off the heads of his fellow inmates before disembowelling their dead bodies.

In one case, he is said to have murdered five inmates in one go in Serra Azul Jail in Sao Paulo in 2011 in one of his bloodiest attacks to date.

He faces spending the rest of his life after racking up multiple convictions and sentences totalling 217 years. Although he has yet to be tried for many of his alleged crimes, according to local reports.

Da Silva is said to have told a judge recently:

“I have no regrets about killing all these people.

They were rapists and thieves who took advantage of other inmates and robbed them.”

Da Silva has been described as the leader of a gang of assassins created with the mission of murdering members of the PCC, one of Brazil’s leading gangs formed by inmates as a self-protection group in the prison system.

Prison guards told online firm UOL that it was only a “question of time” before the notorious prisoner kills again once he is transferred to a new prison.

The report said Da Silva used a fire extinguisher to knock his Serra Azul Prison victims unconscious before beheading them with a home-made knife in his most infamous jail massacre to date.

He is said to have yelled:

“I love this, there’s so few, I want to kill more prisoners” as he snubbed out their lives.

Psychologists say he is not mentally ill but does suffer from a personality disorder that needs to be urgently treated.
