A 17-year-old youth was previously found guilty of two counts of conspiring to supply a class A drug (heroin and crack cocaine) and one count of possession of criminal property. Yesterday he was sentenced to four years and four months’ imprisonment.

The men, who all have links to a street gang in Hackney, sold the drugs in Peterborough and Huntingdon via dedicated phone lines nicknamed ‘Ricki’ and ‘TJ’.

They were arrested following a nine-month long investigation by the Central Gangs Unit, part of the Met’s Trident and Area Crime Command.

Jodeci Ofulue was arrested on 2 November 2017 as he approached an abandoned vehicle in Hawksbill Way in Peterborough. When police attempted to stop him he ran away, dropping his keys and the mobile phone controlling the ‘Ricki’ line. Police found nearly £14,000 worth of heroin and crack cocaine, scales and used latex gloves in the car.

The other men were arrested at their home addresses on 1 March this year.

Detectives used phone analysis and police surveillance to link each man to the drug dealing network, demonstrating contact between the defendants’ phones, the two ‘deal lines’ and local drug users in Cambridgeshire, as well as the locations of the deal lines and the defendants’ personal phones.

During the course of the investigation, drugs with a street value in excess of £17,000 were seized, along with designer clothing, jewellery, cash in excess of £25,000 and a watch valued at over £20,000, which had previously been reported as stolen.

DS Gary Clarke of Trident’s Central Gangs Unit, said: “This was a complex investigation into a lucrative ‘county line’ drugs network, operating between Hackney and Cambridgeshire. Drug dealers prey on local users and use violence and intimidation, bringing with them misery and violent crime to local communities. These sentences demonstrate just how seriously the criminal justice system is taking the issue of county lines drugs rings.”

Justice for Harry Uzoka As 3 Men Including Another Nigerian Are Jailed For His Murder

Three men including another Nigerian have been jailed for killing a Nigerian born British model in a row over his girlfriend.

Harry Uzoka, 25, was stabbed in the heart by fellow model George Koh in west London in January after he went to settle the dispute.

Koh, convicted of murder at the Old Bailey in August, was given a life sentence with a minimum of 25 years.

Merse Dikanda was also found guilty of murder and jailed for at least 22 years, and Jonathan Okigbo was given a 14-year sentence for manslaughter.

Although initially friendly, the relationship between Mr Uzoka and Koh deteriorated after Koh claimed to have had sex with Mr Uzoka’s girlfriend Ruby Campbell, who is also a model.

The pair then exchanged angry text messages and arranged to gather some friends and meet up in Shepherd’s Bush for a fight.

Nigerian Pastor And His Wife Accused Of Allegedly Swindling Church Member Of £190,000

A church Pastor and his wife are facing serious allegations of conning their church member out of the proceeds of the sale of her London property after giving her a “prophecy” that God instructed her to sell her house.

Pastor Temitope Fasakin and his wife, Ibukun formerly of Christ Life church, in Thamesmead, South East London, are being  accused by a retired sick lady Joy Omisigho, of conning her out of funds totalling over £190,000.

Details of the allegations were spelt out via a viral post sent out by Ms Omisigho herself, and the matter is now that of public knowledge.

 

conmen conmpas

The post:

My name is Ms Joy Omisigho I am a member of Christ life church (4 Princess Close, London, SE28 8SJ). I have resided in the UK for over 20 years. I have been a member of the church for over seven years. Around last year 2017 I became seriously sick, keeping up with work and everyday became a challenge. I worked for several years as a cleaner at King’s College Hospital, South London.
The pastor of the church, Mr Temitope Ibukun Fasakin of 27 Hind Crescent Erith, Kent, DA8 3BP. I have known the pastor same length of time I have been in the church.

Last year, the pastor and his wife told me that God has asked them to inform me that I should sell my property and move back to Nigeria if I want to be healed of my illness.

Given that I am a religious person, was very vulnerable and desperate to get well, I had no choice than to heed to their advice.
Soon as the sale of the property was completed – The pastor and his wife then coercively asked to submit all the dividends (£192,557- One hundred and ninety-two thousand, five hundred and fifty-seven pounds) from the property sales to them so that they can help me invest it. The Pastor and his wife then told me they were working with me based on God’s instructions. I had no reason not to trust my pastor and his wife. They warned me not to share the specifics of their dealings with me with anyone including my children. They said God wants me to keep it as a secret and that I must not disobey God.
They told me to go back to Nigeria. They collected £86,500 me claiming they were going to use it to buy a nice property in Lagos. When I arrived in Lagos only to find out that they paid £41,237 for the property even more so the property was fit for living as it was still being modernised.
The pastor then took £11,000 from me claiming that God has asked him to collect it from me. He said it was tithe – I later found out the money was not remitted to the church’s account.
The pastor and his wife then took another £65,000 from me saying that they were going to use it to buy a property in London for me. No property was bought, and the money was never refunded.
The pastor and his wife then asked me for another £10,000 saying they want to invest it on computer sales- I did not see any computer and the money still has not been refunded.
The pastor and his wife came back and demanded £13,000 from me stating that he was going to invest it on some business. Till date I did not get any dividends from the business and the money was not returned to me.
In total, the pastor and his wife defrauded me of £192,557.
I have been left with nothing, I can’t even afford food or rent. I can’t work at the moment because I am still feeling well.
The pastor and his wife have blocked off their phone and would take my calls.
They have threatened me and said I will be dying soon. I am appealing to the police and other agencies to help me. I have no money to pay a lawayer. The pastor and his wife have taken all I have worked for now the are threating every one trying to help me please help me share unroll it gets to the British government and EFCC in Nigeria.

Recently, another post has emerged allegedly from the senior leadership of the church in response to the allegations. Purportedly written by one Pastor Ayeni, the duo have left the Christ Light Church and now lead another church in Dartford.

 

 

The response:

“Dear Ms. Joy Omisigho, this is a very sad report concerning your relationship with Pastor Tope Fasakin & his wife and we really feel sorry for you.

To put record straight, Pastor Temitope Fasakin was a former Pastor at Christ Life Church, Charlton, U.K and he is now a General Overseer of LIGHT ASSEMBLY, 5 pier Road, DA8 1TA.

As at when he was Pastoring at Christ Life Church Carlton, the Church Council were not aware of your deals and it is very unfortunate that you have to commit such a huge amount of money to the hand of a Pastor without proper documentation and witnesses.

Now that the information has reached us at Christ Life Church, we assure you of investigating it to the root while we will not hesitate to hand over the matter to the appropriate quarters for justice.

At Christ Life Church, we are committed to the Word of GOD in total Obedience and soul wining leading people to a glorious eternity with Jesus at the end! We are not dubious, we are not 419, we are of godly characters throughout the world.

Once again, we feel sorry for you and we pray that the Lord will restore your health and everything back to you as soon as possible in Jesus name.

Pastor Adelani Ayeni
Christ Life Church

Greenwich Man Prosecuted For £24,000 Fraudulent Carer’s Payments

A 62-year-old man from Abbey Wood has been prosecuted by the Royal Borough of Greenwich after fraudulently receiving over £24,000 in Direct Payments, for supposedly acting as a carer to a man claiming to be disabled and in need of care.

Charles Dickson, of Bastion Road, SE2, was sentenced to 20 months’ imprisonment, suspended for two years, for having fraudulently received money totalling £24,118.00.

Direct Payments are payments for people who have been assessed by the Council as needing assistance with their daily care needs, and provides them with a personal budget to employ their own carers.

From 4 January 2012 to 23 July 2015 Mr Dickson received regular payments into his bank account which he knew had been fraudulently claimed by a Direct Payments recipient, Mr Z, who had falsely provided Mr Dickson as his carer.

Evidence obtained by the Council’s Internal Audit and Anti-Fraud team identified that Mr Z had been out of the United Kingdom for a total of 37 months in the last five years but had continued to claim Direct Payments, stating that he had been receiving care at his home address in Nuthatch Gardens, Thamesmead, SE28. Throughout this period Mr Dickson submitted regular timesheets to the Council claiming that he had been providing care to Mr Z.

Previous investigation

In June 2016 Mr Dickson was interviewed but provided a “no comment” response to the questions put to him. Council investigators and the Metropolitan Police attempted to interview Mr Z, however they learned that he had returned to his home country of Ghana and refused to return to the United Kingdom to answer questions.

In December 2017 Mr Dickson was summonsed to appear at Bexley Magistrates Court to face four charges under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 relating to the £24,118.00 fraudulently obtained. On 11 December 2017 at Bexley Magistrates Court Mr Dickson pleaded guilty to all four charges and the matter was passed to Woolwich Crown Court for sentencing. On 16 April 2018 at Woolwich Crown Court Mr Dickson repeated his guilty pleas – His Honour Judge Raynor gave Mr Dickson three months to repay the money that he had fraudulently obtained.

On 6 August 2018 at Woolwich Crown Court, His Honour Judge Raynor heard that Mr Dickson had repaid the Royal Borough of Greenwich the full amount of money. His Honour Judge Raynor made it clear that he considered Mr Dickson to be a thoroughly dishonest man and that “he was a wolf in sheep’s clothing and has always been dishonest.”

As well as being sentenced to 20 months’ imprisonment (suspended for two years), Mr Dickson was ordered to undertake 220 hours of unpaid work in the community and was given a three-month curfew to remain at his home address from 8pm to 6am each day. His Honour Judge Raynor took into consideration the affect the curfew would have on Mr Dickson’s railway job and indicated he may well have to lose his job. Mr Dickson was also order to pay the Royal Borough of Greenwich legal costs of £2,887.52 and a victim surcharge of £150.00.

‘Learned a valuable lesson’

Councillor Christine Grice, Cabinet Member for Finance and Resources, said: “It is essential that only people with a genuine need for assistance receive monies, so it was satisfying to hear that the fraudulent Direct Payments claim made by Mr Z has been stopped and that his co-conspirator has been brought to justice, and that the amount defrauded has been repaid. I hope Mr Dickson has learned a valuable lesson and that this case will serve as a deterrent for anyone who may wish to consider a similar criminal path.”

For The Brothers: How Not To Attract A Gold-digger

I cringe everytime I see social media posts by men whingeing and whining about gold diggers and women who have scammed them, taken their money and left them bereft and broken hearted.
I also think of the fair share of men I know that their way to “toast” or court a woman they like, is by offering her a reward of cash and properties such as cars, houses, expensive holidays and designer wears.
Many men like to show off and present themselves as that which they are most definitely not, just to win a woman. The not so affluent ones feign success and accomplishments to attract a woman, and the truly accomplished and affluent ones flaunt their wealth to the woman in the hope that that will make her fall for him.
Unfortunately, this behaviour also makes women believe that you are buying their love and they will not be anything other than an appendage, a bought possession, an accoutrement in your life. Something that can easily be replaced when a more attractive and shinier version comes along.
They will also live with the assumption that while they are in your life and being kept by you, they owe you a great gratitude for being the recipient of your generosity.
There is a great difference between the person who you make to feel like you are doing them a favour by being with them and those who are with you because they feel really needed by you.
 
If you go after someone flashing your wealth and other wordly possessions, then that is all they are going to be attracted to.
Gold-digger
Unless you expose yourself, open up your heart and your true vulnerability to someone, then they are never going to be attracted to the real you.
 
Because the person you never offered your heart to, is never going to feel they will have it at any point, so they go after that which is on offer. Many men make the mistake of thinking that when they offer a woman their wealth and connections, that is enough to make them fall in love.
Like the meaningless adage that says “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”, believing that the way to a woman’s heart is through your bank account is also ridiculously false. True you will get some women that way, but don’t for a second believe that that guarantees you her heart. Also, be aware that as soon as the bank account dries up and the connections line breaks, they too are out of the door.
Afterall, that is all you brought them in to get, isn’t it? 
A gold digger – or trophy wife expects the gold to keep coming and once she has become accustomed to that lifestyle, heavens help you if you try to keep her from it.
There are of course, women who deliberately go out seeking the “gold-flasher”. Men with means and money who are out to get women with nothing but their assets, or men who simply want a trophy wife on his arm – or in his bed – a stunning, glamorous young slay queen who needs other people’s money to keep herself in style. So like he who wants to kill and the one who wants to die both meeting –  really, there is no story. Both are happy and satisfied.
golddigger
But a man who truly wants a woman who will want him for him, will be a big fool to go after a slay queen, a glamour puss or a gold-digger. And such men who end up getting burnt definitely deserve everything they get. You cannot punch above your weight and not expect to be knocked out!
Unfortunately, these are the whingers and the whiners on social media who have bitten off more that they can chew. Though needing women who can give then real love and care genuinely for them, they have been attracted by shiny, glamorous slay queens who after taking the small change they have flashed, have left their asses for richer gold-flashers!
 
Women are by nature, nurturers.
That is why from the moment a woman gives birth to a tiny little baby, or even from the first moment she feels that tiny flutter in her belly, she is bound to that baby for life. That tiny, innocent, vulnerable, helpless, naked baby that is completely dependent on her for everything – including it’s survival. A mother will do anything and go to any length to keep that baby warm, safe and secure. And the love of a mother for her baby is sacred and unbreakable – even when that child betrays it’s mother or breaks her heart, a mother’s love never dies. Because that love is unconditional and not dependent on any promise or offers from the child.
She gives it freely in response to the baby’s naked vulnerability and dependence on her.
 
So it is also, when a woman feels the genuine vulnerability and honest dependence of another human being – or man, she gives back her all and will do anything to make that person happy. Because she feels needed, wanted and important to that being (or man)
 
men-money-and-gold-diggers-stage-play
 
So the next time you see a lady you really want to be with, do not go telling them you will take care of them, or like a father christmas, promise them gifts and money for agreeing to be with you.
 
This is how you attract “golddiggers”
 
But let them feel like they are the only woman in the world and your life is completely incomplete without them in it.
i-give-you-my-heart
 
Convince her that she is your dream woman that you can open and pour your heart out to…and not a trophy that you must win and show off, and she will love you forever. Even when you are broke and penniless.
If you go out flaunting gold, you will surely by all means, attract a gold digger.
