I Was Not Arrested Nor Detained - Mike Adamu

Businessman, Mike Adamu has denied being arrested or detained by the Nigerian Police over a purported court order.

Mr. Adamu, who is the CEO of Reform Sports West Africa Limited and son of Amos Adamu, former Director-General, National Sport Commission, made this assertion via a press statement he signed and sent to the media on Sunday.

The statement became necessary after a number of media platforms went to town with reports that Adamu had been detained based on the order of a Magistrate Court in Mpape, Abuja.



In the statement, Adamu vowed to pursue the matter to a logical legal conclusion.

‘My attention has been drawn to false online and print media reports suggesting to the public that I was arrested, arraigned and ordered to be remanded in custody by a magistrate court in Mpape Abuja till April 1st 2019 sequel to a petition by NSIL Limited pertaining an alleged fraud or scam against me.

It is sad that newspapers and news platforms that are supposed to be mediums of truth have allowed themselves to be avenues peddling falsehood. I was never arraigned nor remanded in the custody of the Police Intelligence Response Team, prison custody or any other custody whatsoever till 1st April 2019 or any other date.

The said publication is false, smirks of cheap blackmail and desperate attempt by the purveyors of this false report. I have had series of meetings with friends, associates and business partners at various times and places within this week and even till this moment.

It is unfortunate that a simple business misunderstanding with NSIL Ltd. will lead to falsehood and an attempt to tarnish my name, that of my companies and my extended family by willing newspapers and platforms’.

Speaking further, Adamu says, ‘In view of the damage done to my hard earned reputation by this, I am consulting with my lawyers and will do everything within the ambit of the law to ensure that everyone involved in peddling and publishing this falsehood face the consequences of their unlawful actions’.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
