Girl, 15, Arrested with Single Barrel Gun

first_imgA fifteen year–old girl identified as Nancy Walh, was among five men the Liberia National Police (LNP) arrested with a single barrel home-made gun during an early Wednesday raid.Suspect Walh, who is believed to be the girlfriend of a jailed notorious criminal who police identified as ‘Bin Laden,’ admitted having a son with Bin Laden.Nancy and her accomplices are being investigated at the LNP headquarters, Police spokesperson Sam Collins disclosed yesterday when he addressed journalists.Though “no charges have been levied against those the police arrested,” Collins said the suspects may face armed robbery charges if the ongoing investigation links anyone of them to a series of recent robberies.Collins said the suspects were arrested following a tip-off from Amos G. Nyemah and Lawrence B. Junior, who the suspects reportedly robbed using short single barrel guns.“The suspects were armed with several of the short single barrel guns and knives, which they have used to attack many other residents,” Collins said.He alleged that during their ‘operations,’ suspect Nancy and her collaborators discharged two rounds of the guns in the air before making away with several valuable items, including cash, from their victims.“The suspects also made away with 210 scratch cards, and several pieces of cell phones,” Collins claimed.Suspect Nancy, who was paraded with her co-suspects in front of journalists, denied any knowledge of the gun, though she alleged it was in a brown bag that was handed over to her by one Ballah Gee, who is at large.According to her, while she and some of the other suspects were sitting at her house, Ballah came running and placed the brown bag on her lap and asked her to keep it for him.“Ballah put the bag containing the gun on my lap, but I did not know what was in it, because I never cared to open the bag when he handed it to me,” Nancy told journalists.She said she was unaware that the police was in pursuit of Ballah until she was arrested.“I didn’t know that the police was after Ballah when he gave me the bag, but immediately after I received the bag from him, the police arrived on the scene. At that time Ballah had left the area,” suspect Nancy claimed.It was during that time, Nancy said, the officers immediately seized the bag from her and opened it and discovered the gun.Meanwhile, Collins said on Tuesday, January 10, around the St. Paul Bridge Community on Bushod Island, another businessman identified as Mustapha Kubah was reportedly arm-robbed by seven suspected unidentified individuals.Collins alleged that the incident happened while Kubah was on his way to the business center in the Duala market.“On his way suddenly Kubah came in contact with a Black Rava Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) with license plate number A-40923. It was out the car the seven persons disembarked and attacked the victim, who the robbers reportedly flogged before making away with his cash and valuables,” Collins said quoting the victim.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

CH&PA distances self from housing developer

first_img…after numerous impropriety complaints – sourcesA housing developer whom sources indicate was once charged with fraudulent conversion of money for a house lot has since had his partnership with the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) severed.According to a notice in the daily newspapers, CH&PA informed the public that a Robert Forrester is not authorised to transact any business on behalf of the agency. The notice added that this was by order of management.Forrester is the CEO of Icarus Construction & Development INC. It was only in August that an announcement was made of a partnership between his firm, the Communities Ministry and the New Amsterdam Municipal Council to construct a model village at Savannah Park.It was noted that the US$3 million initiative, the first for New Amsterdam, would have all the basic amenities and sixty housing units that would cater for low, middle and high-income earners.It was pointed out in the report that only limited spots would be available, as only a specific number could be accommodated; that successful applicants would be screened; and that the requisite documents would be cleared with the relevant lending institutions before applicants would be allocated lots. And like CH&PA’sThe notice in the newspapers indicate that CH&PA have severed ties with Robert Forresterregular house lots, these homeowners would have a specific time in which they must build.In an interview at the time with the media, Forrester had revealed plans for a Police outpost to be erected, in addition to commercial spaces, green areas, and a mall that would have all essential services.However, following the publication of the notice on Sunday, sources at the CH&PA indicated that Forrester was charged back in September of 2014 with converting to his own use $1.5 million given to him to purchase a house lot. He was subsequently granted bail in the amount of $150,000. It is unclear what came out of the matter. The source noted that the CH&PA has been receiving a high number of complaints from members of the public about Forrester’s alleged financial improprieties. Guyana Times understands that these complaints have been made for some time now, but a senior CH&PA official has managed to keep them under wraps since the two share a long friendship. This newspaper was told that the notice in Sunday’s newspaper was prompted by complaints against Forrester in Berbice.Efforts to contact CEO of CH&PA, Lelon Saul, for a comment on the matter proved futile.CH&PA has several projects in the pipeline in a bid to provide housing solutions. Last year, under the Housing Solution 2017 and Beyond project, CH&PA completed six duplexes and two elevated units at Perseverance on the East Bank of Demerara (ECD).last_img read more

Rashford should replace Sterling for Belgium clash, says ex-England boss

first_imgtalkSPORT are with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™ with over 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network. And Allardyce believes the competition for places in Southgate’s starting XI has created a great team atmosphere at the World Cup.“I think Dele Alli is going to have a kick up the backside with Loftus-Cheek stepping in and showing the qualities he’s got,” Allardyce added.“I think the pressure players will feel on their position keeps them right on top of their game. If they look behind them and see there’s nobody to take their place, there are times where naturally they can ease off a little bit.“But when they’re under the cosh, not only from the pressure of the World Cup but the pressure from the players in the squad who are waiting patiently to try and grab their place – I think it’s a good healthy atmosphere for England.” Harry Kane scored a hat-trick as England beat Panama 6-1 on Sunday 4 “It’s not a must-win game, it’s almost a free game.“Yes, we want to carry on the momentum, but Marcus Rashford scored a terrific goal in the friendly he played in.“I wouldn’t say Raheem Sterling is a natural goalscorer, even though he got a huge amount of goals for Man City last season.“Sterling is not as natural a goalscorer as Rashford, and the more goalscorers you have on the pitch the better chance you’ve got of going all the way.” Sam Allardyce has told talkSPORT Marcus Rashford is ‘a more natural goalscorer than Raheem Sterling’ and should start for England in their next World Cup game against Belgium.Rashford was an unused substitute as the Three Lions claimed their biggest World Cup win in history by beating Panama 6-1 on Sunday.The result meant Gareth Southgate’s side have booked their place in the knock-out stages before their final Group G match against Belgium, who are also through. 4 Sterling has started in both games against Tunisia and Panama but has so far struggled to produce the form which saw him grab 23 goals and 17 assists for Manchester City last season.And, although he did provide the assist for Jesse Lingard on Sunday with a neat flicked pass, Allardyce believes Rashford deserves his chance to impress.“I can’t see any reason why Gareth shouldn’t play Marcus Rashford against Belgium,” the former England manager said on Monday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“Raheem Sterling hasn’t delivered what we know he can deliver and what he has delivered at Manchester City.“Unfortunately for him for two games he hasn’t shone quite as much as he has this season.“So you’ve got to say why not Rashford? Sam Allardyce says Rashford deserves a chance to impress against Belgium Loftus-Cheek performed well as his replacement in midfield “I think Dele Alli is going to have a bit of a kick up the backside” 🦵Loftus-Cheek has impressed, so should Alli come straight back in to the #ENG team? 🤔📻 | #TSWorldCup— The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast (@SportsBreakfast) June 25, 2018 4 “He’s not as natural a goalscorer as Marcus Rashford”Sam Allardyce believes Rashford should start over Raheem Sterling vs #BEL 📻 | #TSWorldCup— The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast (@SportsBreakfast) June 25, 2018Big Sam also believes Tottenham star Dele Alli will have been given a ‘kick up the backside’ due to Roben Loftus-Cheek’s impressive form in Russia.The Crystal Palace man stepped into the Three Lions midfield after Dele was ruled out with a thigh injury and didn’t put a foot wrong against Panama.

More snowfalls forecast across Donegal tonight as temperatures to plunge again

first_imgDon’t even think of putting away those hats and scarves and taking off the snow-tyres just yet.Donegal is set to suffer the worst of the winter weather until at least Monday.That’s the message from Met Eireann. They say that while rain and sleet will prevail across the county today, dipping temperatures overnight will bring more snow to many parts of Donegal.And those chilling temperatures will last until at least Saturday.All main roads in Donegal are passable with Donegal County Council sending out all the gritter crews.However, while many secondary roads are clearing, drivers are advised to take care. It will feel milder on Sunday with temperatures jumping to between 8C and 11C.Meanwhile, the AA Roadwatch are asking drivers to slow down and increase stopping distances in areas of ice and frost.Conor Faughnan, AA director of consumer affairs said he urged caution for all road users, including pedestrians at risk on icy pavements.He told “Unfortunately there was a fatality on the M7 on Tuesday night near Nenagh on the road from Dublin to Limerick and the motorway was closed,” he said. “And there was another significant crash on the motorway near Galway just east of the city on Tuesday night.“We won’t know what caused these crashes for some time but we must remind drivers in these conditions to slow down and increase their stopping distances. “Black ice is a real danger. It isn’t visible to the eye, so if you’re driving too fast for the road conditions, you could skid out of control.”Mr Faughnan called on motorway users to drive well below the 120kmh maximum speed limit and said it was vital for drivers to increase stopping distances.More snowfalls forecast across Donegal tonight as temperatures to plunge again was last modified: January 19th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalDRIVERSforecastMet EireannsnowWarninglast_img read more
