After much heated argument and controversy that trailed 30-year-old club owner, Mike Eze-Nwalie Nwogu popularly known as ‘Pretty Mike’, for putting girls on chain to events, the long arms of the law has finally caught up with him.

Mike, was apprehended for dehumanizing young girls by turning them into human puppies with chains round their necks.

He was arrested yesterday, by the police on the orders of the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.

Nwogu was said to be cooperating with investigation and had given useful statement to the police and was released after signing an undertaking to desist from the act

The undertaking read in part: “I, Mike Eze Nwalie, A.K.A Pretty Mike of 21A Magodo GRA, Luma Street, do hereby undertake to stop whatever act of putting girls on a leash or any other degrading treatment to ladies and guys.

I am aware that such act offends the law of the State of Lagos and if I repeat it again, there will be legal act towards me. I undertake to issue a letter of apology to the public effective from tomorrow on all my social media platforms.”

Speaking on the matter, the State’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem said the State Government will not tolerate any anti-social behavior that attempt to dehumanize any citizen in the State.

Kazeem restated the government’s determination to prosecute any individual or group of persons who violate any law of the State under any guise. “The Lagos State Government is committed to the protection of the rights of all citizens including children, women and all the vulnerable persons in the State,” Kazeem said.




A jealous housewife, Oluwakemi Etu, who hacked her husband, Kehinde Etu, to a coma on Saturday has told the police that she bought a new machete two weeks before the act for the purpose of punishing Kehinde.

The acting Police Public Relations Officer for the Ogun State Police Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who stated this on Monday, also told our correspondent that Oluwakemi explained further that after purchasing the machete, she hid it in her apartment in the Erinlu area of Ijebu Ode, so as not to arouse suspicion.

“She said her waiting paid off last Saturday as she succeeded in luring her husband to her apartment,” the PPRO added.

Our correspondent gathered that she had invited the husband over to her residence to spend the weekend with her, which the man honoured without suspecting any foul play.

It was learnt that while he was there, she treated him warmly, but later attacked him with machete, inflicting several deep cuts on his chest and other parts of the body while he was asleep.

Oluwakemi was arrested by men of the Obalende Police Division, while the husband was rushed to the General Hospital in Ijebu Ode, where he is receiving medical attention.

The state acting spokesperson said the machete Oluwakemi used to inflict wounds on her husband had been recovered.

He said, “The woman has told the police that she bought the cutlass she used in inflicting cuts on her husband two weeks before she attacked him.

“She claimed that she attacked her hubby because he wanted to marry a second wife.”

Oyeyemi, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, said the suspect would soon be charged to court with either “wounding or attempted murder.”

Meanwhile, a source at the state General Hospital, Ijebu Ode, said Kehinde was responding to treatment.

MASVINGO (ZIMBABWE) – A traumatised girl doing grade 7 at Vurombo Primary School in Masvingo who unsuccessfully reported a relative who raped her finally got the attention she needed after writing her experiences in a school essay.

Her teacher (name withdrawn to protect child) was shocked by the touching Shona composition in which the girl literally pleaded with the world to hear her out and the teacher took the essay to the headmistress, Regina Chidzurira.

The minor expressed fear that she would one day get pregnant if the cousin brother is not stopped from raping her.
Chidzurira in turn reported the matter to Police and invited the girl to her office to give her testimony while officers were allegedly hiding behind a door and listening. She narrated everything to the head and the suspect was arrested.

The letter which was addressed to an aunt was written in a touching and unusually mature manner.The girl said she had pain in her heart and was writing to the aunt because she had no one else to turn to. She said that Tapiwa Mutyavaviri (18) who is a cousin brother who recently came to stay at the family lodgings was traumatising her and because she was a girl child many things could happen to her.

She said that Mutyavaviri forced her into sex when older people were not at home and at night he would sneak into her bedroom and abuse her.

Although the teacher gave the girl 15 marks out of 20 in the essay and gave the child a good, the composition turned out to be a real life situation.

The complainant stays with her grandmother and the accused would visit the grandmother and in her absence abuse the minor when they were left alone with the maid.According to the State papers the complainant was raped twice by the accused and on one of the occasions it happened in the presence of the maid Ruvarashe Tsere.

In her evidence Tsere says she once caught the two in the spare bedroom with the complainant’s dress lifted up and the accused’s trousers at knee level having sex and she cautioned the two.She also says she reported the matter to the pair’s aunt Erita Munhande and assumed that she would in turn tell the grandmother but that did not happen.The girl alleges in her composition that she told her mother but she would not do anything about it as she never believed her.

Meanwhile, the father who stays in Gokwe has approached Masasa Project who advised him to let the law take its course and they will take it up if he encounters any problems.The father said when the child was doing grade five he had advised his wife to take the child away or for him to stay with her but she refused and that led to a lot  marriage friction.The father was almost in tears when The Mirror spoke to him. He said it was painful to realise that his child had to reveal her problems through an essay.”It is very painful to know that your child has lost her virginity to a relative and people connive to conceal such a heinous act,” said Tarindwa.
