BelieveSpot report.

According to the report released by the Nigerian Army headquarters on Sunday, Nigerian Army in their reinvigorated drive to end the insurgency in the North East, troops have continued to sustain the tempo of the ongoing Counter Terrorism and Counter Insurgency operations in the North East

The report reads; "In their reinvigorated drive to end the insurgency in the North East, Nigerian Army troops have continued to sustain the tempo of the ongoing Counter Terrorism and Counter Insurgency operations in the North East with a view to decimating and destroying the remnant Boko Haram/Islamic State West Africa (ISWAP) criminals across the Operation LAFIYA DOLE Theatre. 

"In one of the numerous operations conducted across the Theatre today, 16 November 2019, troops of 26 Task Force Brigade embarked on a Clearance Patrol to Dalu Village  within the Mandara Mountains in Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State following credible intelligence report on the presence of some of the criminal insurgents in that area. 

"Fortunately, the report was confirmed as the troops soon established contact with the marauding terrorists and effectively subdued them with their superior fire power during the ensuing fire fight. Subsequently, the troops proceeded to thorough clear the Village of the presence of the criminal insurgents.

'The People Killing Port Harcourt Entertainment Industry Are The Same People Other Are...' - Ethrice Epken fume

by

Ethrice Ekpen, the CEO of EOne records has swapped on the Entertainers in Port Harcourt for their lack of knowledge in entertainment business, which have seen them blocked potential investors coming to invest in the sector.

In a lengthy article made available to BelieveSpot, the record label chief said:

"There are so many "Amature players" (Quack) in Port Harcourt Entertainment Industry and because they think they Own the Town and got knowledge which they dont have about Entertainment business they keep blocking potential investors from coming into the sector by becoming an obstacle to anything good that would have happen in the industry."

"No major player in entertainment industry that doesn't have something else bringing money for them but reverse is the case with port harcourt Entertainers and that's the reason they gradually becoming beggers. What you have seen over the years in Port Harcourt industry is people Recruiting Innocent young once into hating other people with them and thereby blocking their own destiny."

"I know a whole lot of people will tell you in this industry is turn by turn but Even at that, in life everything has its own time and season and to shock you age has alot to play in whatever career you into in life. As you grow old there are many things you can't do anymore and so also is the lifestyle. See Nigeria Supper Eagles for instance they ll bring in a 42yrs old to a tournament met for under 18's and you expect such person to match up with the energy, it can't happen."


Speaking further, he said: "Alot of them in Port Harcourt are very quick to Brag about the number of years they been in the industry as Quack players and to say the least they got nothing to show for it whether Monitary or Experience. Not until the Younger generation rise up and stand for themselves in Port Harcourt nothing I repeat "Nothing" will happen in that town entertainment wise. Sentimental talks everywhere cos of fear from people that can't even help themselves which you expecting help from. We have heard them shouting about having meetings with some Top people in government or otherwise to discuss entertainment in Port Harcourt but the question is how many of them are really Qualified to discuss on behalf of Entertainers in Port Harcourt? and what do they even know about Entertainment? Nothing. They bring shows to port harcourt they won't let them pay Artistes, comedians or dancers and you expect them to live a good life and look good... How?"

"With social media and the right people on your side you can become anything you want to become. Alot of them that call themselves Media Guru in Port Harcourt don't even have power supply, good Garget nor Internet 24hours of the day to do what they take money from people for. Enough is enough of people fooling themselves thinking they fooling and punishing others. Hate speech everywhere from people that can't even identify who they spreading rumour about when they drive pass them."

"God is good but never dance on a small boat... "Ethrice". Successful investing is anticipating the anticipations of others and the only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability.
When alot of Ignorant people see you doing well in what you are good at they think is easy or you just been lucky."

"Another year is coming and strength are failing them so pick up yourselves and go and pursue the career you believe in." He concluded

Social media Users divide as court throws out Busola Dakolo's case against Biodun Fatoyinbo

by

The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Court 12, sitting at Bwari, Abuja has dismissed the case filed by Busola Dakolo against Biodun Fatoyinbo, the pastor/founder of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA).

Earlier this year, Busola Dakolo accused Biodun Fatoyinbo of raping her twice when she was a teenager attending his church. However, Biodun Fatoyinbo denied this as well as other accusations that came afterward.

Busola later went the legal route by filing a suit against Fatoyinbo. Biodun Fatoyinbo's team of lawyers, led by Dr. Alex Izinyon (SAN), argued that the prayers in the suit were ungrantable by the court and that the suit was frivolous and an abuse of court process.

Justice Oathman A. Musa, while giving judgment on the case, said that the matter amounts to injustice and an abuse of judicial process. He added that the case is empty and purely sentimental. Justice Musa said that the case was aimed more at cruelty than obtaining justice.
