And now the real games begin…

I don’t know if you have heard but over 150,000 condoms will be handed out at the London 2012 Summer Olympics. The Olympics are a 15 day event so that’s 10,000 condoms per day!

According to ESPN’s Body Issue:

“The Olympic Village is basically one giant sex-fest. US women’s soccer player Hope Solo was especially vocal on the issue, claiming she slept with a celebrity (that she wouldn’t name) and that people are having sex right out in the open “On the grass, between buildings. People are getting down and dirty.”

At the 2000 Sydney Olympics 70,000 free condoms available, and that was not enough, an additional 20,000 condoms had to be brought in to meet demand. Since then 100,000 condoms have been made available but it was upped to 150,000 this year because…well it’s London LOL!

To give you an idea of how crazy things get at the Olympics check out these Crazy Anecdotes From ESPN’s Story On Sex At The Olympic Village

1. At the 2000 Sydney Games, US javelin competitor Breaux Greer had sex with three women every day for 2 weeks.
2. US soccer player Hope Solo snuck a celebrity into her room after winning gold at the 2008 Beiging Games, but won’t say who (rumour has it that it’s Vince Vaughn)
3. At the 1994 Winter Olympic games, Skier Carrie Sheinberg said two German bobsledders tried to trade her their gold medals for “some group fun”
4. At the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver six athletes from Germany, Canada, and Austria were involved in an orgy in a whirlpool at a house outside the Village.

Here’s what US Gold Medal Swimmer Ryan Lochte had to say just before leaving for the games “My last Olympics, I had a girlfriend, big mistake. Now I’m single, so London should be really good. I’m excited.”

So now you see why that many condoms are needed! Sodom & Gomorrah ain’t got nothing on the Olympic Village!

This is the second time the group is claiming to be having a heavy weapon, it occurred in 2009, when the group claims it’s having a tank which it collected from the Nigerian army. The main problem is that the helicopter is the same color with the Nigerian army’s helicopter.

Bank Driver Arrested With 19 ATM Cards, N652,000.

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested Dare Oladujoye, a driver with Zenith Bank, for allegedly being in possession of 19 Guaranty Trust Bank ATM cards and the sum of N652, 000.

It was learnt that the suspect was using the cards to withdraw money from an ATM at Ogba branch of GTB when a security guard raised the alarm.

The Commissioner of Police for the state police command, Mr. Umar Manko, said as of the time of his arrest, the suspect had withdrawn N652, 000 from the ATM.

Manko said, “On July 26, 2012, around 8:30pm, there was a distress call that there was commotion at GTB, Ogba branch. On getting there, the suspect was seen with 19 ATM cards.

“He is an employee of Zenith Bank and we wondered what he was doing with the 19 cards. He was arrested and as of the time of his arrest, he had cashed N652, 000. The matter is under investigation.”

The suspect however denied stealing the ATM cards. He said whenever he lent people money, he would collect their ATM cards as collateral and return them after payment.

He said, “I usually loan people money and I’ve been doing it for over a year. Whenever I loan people money, I will collect their ATM cards and their Personal Identification Numbers. When they repay me, I return their cards to them.

“However, if they don’t pay me back in cash, I go to withdraw money from their accounts through the ATM.”

When quizzed on where he got the money which he lent people, he said he was into various kinds of businesses.

He also said he had friends in the banking sector who helped him with funds.

He said, “I am a very hard working person. I joined Zenith Bank as a driver over three years ago and in less than a year, I bought a tricycle which I leased to another driver that gives me returns on a regular basis.

“The following year, I bought two tricycles bringing the total number to three. I make N150,000 monthly from the tricycles and N60,000 from my salary. I also get credit facilities through my connections in the banking sector.

“On the day I was arrested, I went to withdraw money on Thursday night with some of the cards when a security guard raised the alarm. I did not steal those cards. I know the owners of the cards and I have their numbers on my phone.”

Meanwhile, the command has warned members of the public to be very careful when buying vehicles so as not to buy stolen ones.

The warning became imperative following the arrest of two mechanics who allegedly received six stolen vehicles and even sold some to members of the public.

Manko said buyers could sense stolen vehicles by their cheap prices.

It was learnt that on July 7, 2012, Sunday Okoduwa came with a report that his car was stolen on Victoria Island.

Policemen later traced the car to a workshop in Agidingbi and arrested a man identified simply as Abdusalam, who in turn claimed that he bought it from one Idowu Adegboyega.

It was learnt that when Adegboyega was arrested and could not give a satisfactory explanation, his house was searched and some documents were found which led to the recovery of six other vehicles.

A police source said, “When we searched the suspect’s house, some documents were recovered which led to the recovery of six other vehicles.

“All the vehicles were registered in the name of one Oti Olusekola Jacob, who is believed to belong to the gang of armed robbers in Lagos.”

In a related development, the police have arrested 12 armed robbery suspects.

Police authorities said the suspects belonged to a syndicate that specialised in snatching vehicles from the owners at gunpoint.

The police alleged that the suspects operated in Ikorodu where they robbed and also sold vehicles.

According to the police, Ahmed Abdullahi, Azeez Abiodun, Olusoga Taiwo, Wasiu Azeez and Dele Balogun are among the suspects arrested.

It was learnt that three of the suspects, Adebiyi Mafimisesin, Lekan Aibinuomo and Okalawon Akinpelu; were receivers of stolen vehicles, which were either Toyota or Honda products.

A police source said, “The case emanated from Ikorodu Police Station and was reported on June 20, 2012 by a complainant who was attacked and robbed of his Toyota Sienna Space bus.

“We swung into action and we discovered where they keep stolen vehicles and sell to buyers. We recovered six vehicles; Toyota Sienna, Toyota Corolla, Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and two others.

“We also recovered single-barrelled locally-made shotguns and 24 live cartridges and one expended cartridge.”

Two Muslim Clerics Arrested in Lagos over N10m Fraud.

Police detectives attached to the Lagos Special Fraud Unit (SFU) have arrested two ‘Muslim clerics’ for allegedly defrauding local and foreign businessmen of N10 million.

The suspects Fatai Bamidele and Lateef Ahmed, allegedly paraded themselves as Muslim clerics to defraud innocent members of the public of their money.

They were said to have allegedly operated a shrine in Ilorin in Kwara State and they took victims to the shrine where they were made to take an oath not to reveal what had happened to them to others.

Parading the suspects before newsmen in Lagos yesterday, Commissioner of Police in charge of SFU, Mr. Tunde Ogunsakin, said the fraudsters were arrested based on a petition by some victims about their criminal activities.

The petitioner, according to him, alleged that sometime in October 2011, one Lawal Suleiman collected his goods (fireworks) valued at N13, 320, 750.00 with the promise to pay as soon as the goods were delivered. The goods were delivered successfully but the suspect refused to pay, he said.

He said Fatai Bamidele, 34 years old from Kwara, claimed to be a Muslim cleric who normally assists Lawal Suleiman in his spiritual life. “Lawal Suleiman came to him to seek special assistance concerning the bad dream he had and also that he needed more power and more money”, he added.

The request for more money, according to him, prompted him to introduce him to one Alhaji Lateef Ahmed in Ilorin who happened to be his master and superior.

“So he informed Lawal that they have two types of money rituals: there is the one brought by ghost and the other type from daily contribution,” he added.

He said Lawal opted for daily contribution and at the end of it all about N10 million was allegedly obtained from him so far before the police swooped on them.

The commissioner said it was discovered during investigation that of the N10 million Lateef gave his colleague in crime, Bamidele, N2.5 million while he took the remaining N7.5 million.
