Recently, precisely on the 21st of August 2017, President Buhari –having returned to the country after long absence –had the privilege to address Nigerians.
While President Buhari came on air to address Nigerians after his failure to give any official speech for about 105 days, he was criticized for his speech which lasted only few minutes. Meanwhile, some reports have implied clamours, stating that the presidential speech was unreasonably curt as it failed to address some burning issues causing agitation within the country.
President Muhammad, who returned from the UK after a long period of medical attention, declared that the unity of the country is not negotiable. In the President’s speech, it’s implied that all attempts or moves to split up the country are unwelcome.
Within Buhari’s speech which lasted only six minutes, the dogged President maintained that his administration would ensure it revives its severe measures against the riots between farmers and Fulani herdsmen, incidence of abduction and activities of Boko Haram sect.
However, below are the critical issues which some Nigerians expected President Buhari to have discussed:
Mr. David Babachir Lawal, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, was barred from the presentation of contracts under the PINE (the Presidential Initiative on the North East). Some Nigerians are feeling aggrieved because President Buhari’s speech failed to draw attention on this decisive issue.
On Sunday, 13th of August, (ASUU) Academic Staff Union of Universities declared its decision to embark on strike action claiming that its staff members have not been provided financial assistance by the government. In addition to that, the association maintained that academic freedom and university autonomy are not under consideration.
The Call for Restructuring
President Buhari made no reference to the insistent demand for restructuring of the country. The President spoke nothing about restructuring despite some South-Western leaders’ plan to stage a Lagos protest on 7th of September 2017 strongly calling for restructuring.

Police Arrest Medical Doctor Who Bought N28M Porsche Car With Fake Bank Alert
A 28-year-old medical doctor and a professional hacker, Michael Williams, who specializes in generating fake bank alerts to buy assorted vehicles and divert online fund transfers, has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command.
Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, who paraded the suspect before newsmen in the command’s headquarters in Ikeja yesterday, said the suspect who hails from Delta State, claimed he learnt how to hack accounts when he relocated to Canada. He alleged his roommate who is from Israel had taught him the Act.
On how he was arrested, CP Imohimi said his office received a complaint that there exists a syndicate that goes to car shops, buy any exotic car of their choice, configures a computer program that would send a fake payment alert to the seller and by so doing, obtain the car of their choice under false pretenses.
Williams had visited a car dealer, Abidogun Adewale and bought a Porsche SUV at N28 Million with a fake bank alert.
” After he had bought the vehicle, he thereafter requested for the seller’s bank account number and made it look like he had paid him via the fake alert to his phone using HTTP tunnel. com. The suspect drove the car away unknown to the seller that he had been scammed.
Adewale had only discovered when he went to the bank to obtain his bank statement weeks after. However, based on his complaint, a manhunt was launched on the fleeing suspect.
The command availed detectives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad all necessary Intelligence asset which led to the arrest of the suspect in Lekki Lagos. This suspect was interrogated and he confessed to committing the crime.
He also led detectives to Asaba, Delta State where the stolen Porsche car was recovered. He also led detectives to Owerri, Imo State where two Camry Saloon cars he stole in a similar fashion were recovered.
The modus operandi of the suspect who has a good mastery of cyber environment is that he creates a credit card, through cyber ghost 12. When the credit card matures, it is then funded through a hacked Swiss account. Any transaction anybody is doing through Swiss account the suspect manipulates such and wire the fund to his contrived credit card.
This is possible with the aid of cyber ghost 12 HTTP/tunnel.azinytv4/vpn (virtual private network). He further stated that through the credit card, one can buy softwares he needs to work and protect his job so that he cannot be traced. Such softwares are known as von and word cyber protector for example Dare Devil.
It also enables you to do deductions and transactions per dollar from every individual domicillary account, shutting of CCTV camera on Dare Devil and break the 256 codes on word CCTV.china.north Korea.code, untouchable.tracker.com.
This enables him to shut down any working system of his interest on yt. com an Internet sophistication for example youtube/Facebook to make them unworkable for 67 minutes. Although he is not a computer scientist, he claimed to be a professional hacker.” CP Imohimi says
When interrogated, Williams said he left Nigeria after he was kicked out by two hospitals he worked with
”I was pushed out of work so I got a visa to travel to Canada. I worked at Tolu medical centre and EKO hospital. It is just that in Nigeria, when they see you are good at something, they just look for a way to push you out.
I travelled to Canada to get a job to do or something to do. When I got to Canada, I was living with an Israel guy who had an accommodation there. He taught me all I need to know in hacking. It is about software made easy online.
So when you are a hacker, you buy the software online, it is very easy. I get money online and not from individuals in Nigeria. It is a free world online. I came back to Nigeria because our banks are not secured.
You can easily hack accounts online. Creating a credit card, you get old credit card online, create them wait for a day monitor your emails and wait for when transactions are coming in on the Swiss code transaction.
I don’t have an idea of how much I have made. Anybody making a one million Dollar or two million Dollar transaction or one billion Dollar, then you divert it online. Then you secure your securities, then you fund it on your credit card. After funding it on your credit card, then you can use your credit card to buy any kind of powerful software you want and anything buyable online.
You monitor celebrities, movie producer and actresses in the USA. John Travolta an actor based in USA he does transfers every week. I hacked into his Swiss code account. Banks in Nigeria are not like banks abroad.” he said
Williams said Nigerian banks have porous online banking security
“In Nigeria you can sit and hack any account but abroad it is only through the Swiss account because the money is much . Nigerian bank don’t have professional hackers to secure them online.
They are not secured so I can easily hack into their account. When you are online, you can do whatever you want to do. I don’t have an account because you can easily be caught so I just do credit cards. You get old credit card”he said
The Commissioner of Police said the suspect would be charged to court soon.
