A 22-year-old man, Aladegolu Victor, was on Friday sentenced to three years imprisonment by an Osogbo Magistrates’ Court, for impersonating as Directorate of State Security (DSS) and Police officer.
The Magistrate, Mr Olusola Aluko, said the convict should serve the jail term due to the gravity of the offence.
The prosecutor, Insp. Fagboyinbo Abiodun, had told the court that the convict committed the offence in Ile-Ife, on Aug. 9, 2014 during the last gubernatorial election in Osun.
Abiodun said the convict wore a uniform with inscription of the DSS and Police within the vicinity where he was apprehended.
He said the offences contravened Sections 516, 108(1), 109(b), 249(3) of the Criminal Code Cap 34 Vol. 11 Laws of Osun, 2003.
The convict had pleaded guilty to the five count charges against him
Rapper Kodak Black shot while leaving Justin Bieber’s afterparty
American rapper, Kodak Black, was among three people shot early Saturday February 12, as he was leaving a party held for Justin Bieber in West Hollywood, California.
The 24-year-old Florida rapper and three others were shot; two were taken by ambulance and two self-transported to a hospital, the Los Angeles Police Department said. All are in stable condition.
According to reports by TMZ, Kodak – real name Bill Kapri – was outside the restaurant with fellow rappers Gunna and Lil Baby in the early hours of Saturday (12 February) morning.
A fight broke out within the group, with Black reportedly attempting to punch someone when gunshots were heard by witnesses. He was shot in the leg.
“The fight was believed to have started with someone in Kodak Black’s entourage,” a source told Page Six. “After others jumped in, shots were fired… and then all hell broke loose.”
It was not immediately clear what sparked the fight outside the club in the 400 block of N. La Cienega Boulevard. But an LAPD spokesman said the victims were shot when they emerged from the club during the fight.
In a video shared online, several people were seen fighting with Black during the scuffle. After a few moments, multiple gunshots were heard.
The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
Police said that 10 shots were fired during the altercations, with four men injured, including Black.
One is said to have been shot in the shoulder, one the leg, and one the buttocks, a source said, while photos showed a man covered in blood.
Two of the men (a 19 and 60-year-old) were taken straight to the hospital from the scene. A 24-year-old (believed to be Black) and another man took themselves to the hospital later.
Two of the men are yet to be named by local authorities, but they are all said to be in stable condition.
US Pastor fatally stabbed 15 times by her son
A pastor from Brooklyn, New York, US is dead leaving her church community in shock after her son allegedly stabbed her 15 times.
Tracey Sydnor was the Head pastor at the Upper Room Baptist Church on Rockaway Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Sydnor, 61, was killed on Saturday, January 29, when her son, identified as Kenji Francis, allegedly repeatedly stabbed her in her Brooklyn home on Wyona St. near Livonia Ave. in New York in the afternoon.
“She was the glue that kept everything together,” Terrence Reed, a friend of Sydnor, told the Daily News. “Not one bad thing can be said about her.”
She was stabbed at least 15 times, including in her neck, ear and hands, police said. An Ambulance rushed Sydnor to Brookdale University Hospital, but she could not be saved.
Her 40 year old son, Francis, was taken into custody at their home. Charges against him were pending Sunday.
Francis has no prior arrests or history of mental illness.
“It seems like he just snapped,” a police source said.
A knife believed to be the murder weapon was recovered from a bedroom in the home, sources said.
Sydnor grew up attending the church before leading its choir. She was appointed as the head pastor of the congregation in November 2021.
“She was full of life and full of love; she loved singing and dancing,” Reed said. “She was a sweet lady.”
“We talked life stuff, church stuff, just everyday conversation,” Reed said. “She was an encourager, very supportive person.”
In a sermon Sunday, January 30, at the Upper Room Baptist Church, Bishop J. Carl Henderson announced the loss of Sydnor to the congregation.
“God bless you and please my sister, please my brother continue to pray for the family, her children, her siblings and her extended family and our church family as a whole. Our church is suffering a loss.” Henderson said
