Female arms dealer nabbed by SARS operatives (PICTURED)

Female arms supplier

A 34-year-old female gun-runner has been arrested by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad for selling guns to armed robbers.
A SARS team from Ikeja, Lagos, apprehended Sarah Emmanuel, the wife of a deceased notorious armed robber, who used to hawk wares before venturing into the illegal supply of arms to criminals.
Sarah, who is a mother of two, was arrested after she was implicated by some armed robbery suspects, who were initially apprehended by the SARS operatives. The robbery suspects had confessed to purchasing their guns from her, which led to her eventual arrest.
The suspect used to buy locally made guns from a border town between Benin Republic and Nigeria and re-sell to armed robbers.
Sarah gave her account of events which led to her arrest. She said, “I live in Sango Otta, I have two children; the first is 10 years old while the other is six. I am a trained hair dresser.

The Benin-Ore-Lagos Road is eating too much money

Benin-Ore-Lagos-road

The Federal Government recently approved the sum of N147.4 billion as additional funds for road projects in the country. The Minister of Works, Mike Onolememen, who disclosed this recently, said the council reviewed the progress on two major roads, Benin-Ore-Lagos as well as Okene-Benin Expressway.
The Benin-Ore road has been a nightmare for travellers for more than two decades. Lives have been lost and goods worth billions of naira have also been lost or damaged due to frequent road accidents occasioned by crater-like potholes in most sections of this all-important route between the east and west of Southern Nigeria.
Previous governments attempted repairs, but most of the work done was more or less cosmetic, especially on the Ore-Okada Junction axis between Edo and Ondo States.
In the 1970s when it was built by Dumez, travellers needed only a comfortable three hours between Benin city and Lagos. But that joy of easy travel lasted only a few years. Collapsing sections yielded the
