The trial of Afeez Fashola, a.k.a Naira Marley, for alleged conspiracy and credit card fraud has been adjourned till February next year.Justice I. Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos adjourned further hearing till February 27, 2020 at the session on Thursday.

At the resumed hearing today, the first prosecution witness, PW1, Dalhatu Buhari, who was cross-examined by the defendant’s counsel, Olalekan Ojo, SAN, told the court that he did not need a password to access the defendant’s computer by the standards of his training and that cyber security training was available to anyone.

When asked if any expert in cyber security could access a computer and do what he likes on it in relation to the credit card details that were found on the defendant’s computer, the PW1 said : “ It is not possible for just any expert in cyber security to access a computer and do anything he likes on it.“ This is because there are various aspects in cyber security and not all the tools used in cyber security are accessible to all the various aspects.” When also asked if he recorded the date of the registration of the administration of the account, he answered in the negative, stating that the Windows Operating system that was used for the analysis could not provide such details “because it is exclusive to the Apple Operating System and is only accessible to the company.”The witness further told the court that his analysis only recovered card details that were found on the defendant’s system.

He, however, told the court that only the investigator could determine if the cards were fraudulently used.The case was adjourned till February 27 and 28, 2020.

Government places fee on statutory marriage and marriage certificates as PFN kicks

Published

By

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) have expressed dissatisfaction over the new law from the Ministry of Interior head, stating the compulsory payment of N30,000 by Churches to perform statutory marriages and N21,000 for each marriages certificate.

According to PFN, churches are being targeted by the Federal Government.

PFN’s National President of the fellowship, Rev.(Dr.) Felix Omobude said;

“This is very unfair and to the best of our understanding, the new law is targeted against the Church because the Traditional and Islamic weddings are exempted from paying the new marriage certificate fees.

“PFN is at a loss as to why Church Marriages should be in the exclusive list of the nation’s constitution. The PFN, therefore calls on the Federal Government to immediately shelve the unpopular policy targeted against Christian marriages in the country.

“If the Ministry of Interior is in dire need of funds, it should look elsewhere and resist the temptation of placing an extra financial burden on the Christians and their churches.”

It’s ‘come one, come all’ season as President Buhari promises visa on arrival for African visitors in 2020

Published

It’s about to become much easier for Africans to travel to the continent’s most populous country.

In a major change to its current visa policy, Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari announced the country will begin issuing visas on arrival for all African nationals. Buhari announced the plan while attending a peace and development summit in Egypt.

If it comes into effect it would be a major boon for the continent-wide push ensure freer movement of Africans. But, as there are no concrete details beyond Buhari’s statement in Egypt, exact details of the new policy remain unclear. Sources have not received a response to email enquiries sent to the presidency’s communications team as of press time.

The seeming abruptness and lack of a detailed, official announcement from the government suggests the policy might remain a work in progress but a tweet from the Somali foreign affairs minister suggests it is slated to kick-start in Jan. 2020.

The change in visa policy by Nigeria comes on back of the signing of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement, a treaty seeking to establish a continent-wide marketplace with increased trade and freer movement among its major pillars. When the new policy is implemented, Nigeria will also join Kenya as well as Ethiopia as countries which have recently established visa on arrival policies for all African nationals.

With the African Union strongly pushing for more integration on the continent, it will likely be banking on the effect of reciprocity to see even more African countries adopt visa-free or visa on arrival policies for African passport holders. Should that happen, current realities which see Americans and Europeans travel more easily across the continent than Africans may yet be reversed.

While easing visa rules is one thing, smoother air travel for travelers across the continent is quite another. Yet, the African Union has also recorded strong progress in this regard with the launch of the Single Air Transport Market initiative to ensure cheaper and more regular direct flights between African countries.
