Sharp or Mumu: Danladi steals specimen naira notes!

Its with astonishment that I read the news of one security guard, Vatsama Danladi, who was yesterday arraigned before Justice M. M. Kolo of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court, Wuse Zone 2, Abuja on a four-count charge bordering on theft, illegal possession and use of specimen naira currency notes.

Danladi, a security guard with Kings Guard Security attached to Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), ran into legal trouble when one of the new generation banks found 299 pieces of N1,000 notes marked "specimen" amounting to N299,000 during a process of cash count sometime in January. Danladi deposited the specimen currency notes into his account through ATM deposit machines at Karu and Mararaba branches.

Danladi,am sure thought he was smart, by avoiding using the banking all for deposit, and indeed it exposed the inability of the machines to detect fake currency as it accepted a specimen note. Danladi must have thought "who cares about specimen notes at CBN, its just a paper" and decided help himself to some specimen Now he is cooling his feet in detention.

On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…

Tupac Shakur’s stepfather up for parole after spending 30 years in prison

Mutulu Shakur (born Jeral Wayne Williams, August 8, 1950) is an American black nationalist and acupuncturist. He was a proponent of the Republic of New Afrika and a close friend of Geronimo Pratt.

Shakur is best known for his conviction on racketeering charges following the 1979 prison escape of Joanne Chesimard (Assata Shakur) and the infamous $1.6 million robbery of a Brinks armored truck in New York in which a guard and two police officers were killed. It was later found that an illegal project by the FBI, COINTELPRO, aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and neutralizing what they considered domestic political organizations, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., had targeted Mutulu as well as many of his comrades.  Mutulu Shakur is the stepfather of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur. He was captured, convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison for leading a revolutionary group responsible for a trail of bloodshed, including the slayings of an armed guard and two New York polic…
