the witness reveals how the sum of N18bn was paid into the account of a company, Ismalob Global Investments, belonging to Ismaila Mustapha, also known as Mompha. Mompha was arraigned on November 25, 2019 on a 14-count charge bordering on money laundering to the tune of N33bn.
At yesterday sitting, the first prosecution witness, PW1, Anne Nnenna Ezekannagha, a Manager in the Customers Service Department of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, told the court that Mompha’s company, Ismalob Ventures, was not registered with the CBN.

INTRODUCTION Oxidation results in an increase in the oxidation state. Reduction results in a decrease in the oxidation state. If an atom is reduced, it has a higher number of valence shell electrons, and therefore a higher oxidation state, and is a strong oxidant. For example, oxygen (O) and fluorine (F) are very strong oxidants. On the other hand, lithium (Li) and sodium (Na) are incredibly strong reducing agents (likes to be oxidized), meaning that they easily lose electrons. In this module, we will precisely go over the oxidation states of transition metals.
It is often useful to follow chemical reactions by looking at changes in the oxidation numbers of the atoms in each compound during the reaction. Oxidation numbers also play an important role in the systematic nomenclature of chemical compounds. By definition, the oxidation number of an atom is the charge that atom would have if the compound was composed of ions.
The oxidation number of an atom is zero in a neutral substance that contains atoms of only one element. Thus, the atoms in O2, O3, P4, S8, and aluminum metal all have an oxidation number of 0.
The oxidation number of simple ions is equal to the charge on the ion. The oxidation number of sodium in the Na+ ion is +1, for example, and the oxidation number of chlorine in the Cl- ion is -1.
The oxidation number of hydrogen is +1 when it is combined with a nonmetal as in CH4, NH3, H2O, and HCl.
The oxidation number of hydrogen is -1 when it is combined with a metal as in. LiH, NaH, CaH2, and LiAlH4.
The metals in Group IA form compounds (such as Li3N and Na2S) in which the metal atom has an oxidation number of +1.
The elements in Group IIA form compounds (such as Mg3N2 and CaCO3) in which the metal atom has a +2 oxidation number.
Oxygen usually has an oxidation number of -2. Exceptions include molecules and polyatomic ions that contain O-O bonds, such as O2, O3, H2O2, and the O22- ion.
The elements in Group VIIA often form compounds (such as AlF3, HCl, and ZnBr2) in which the nonmetal has a -1 oxidation number.
The sum of the oxidation numbers in a neutral compound is zero.
H2O: 2(+1) + (-2) = 0
The sum of the oxidation numbers in a polyatomic ion is equal to the charge on the ion. The oxidation number of the sulfur atom in the SO42- ion must be +6, for example, because the sum of the oxidation numbers of the atoms in this ion must equal -2.
SO42-: (+6) + 4(-2) = -2
Elements toward the bottom left corner of the periodic table are more likely to have positive oxidation numbers than those toward the upper right corner of the table. Sulfur has a positive oxidation number in SO2, for example, because it is below oxygen in the periodic table.
Popular America_celebrity jeweller who base in Atlanta in United States of America, ice box, reveals in his status that Nigeria music star Davido, spend a whopping among of 50 to 100million on jewelry each time he visit his shop.
According Ice Box, the Nigerian superstar spends 50 million naira to 100 million naira each time he visits his jewellery store in Atlanta.
The American-celebrity jeweller made this known through his Instagram Story last night thereby pressing the buzzing button on social media in the process.
We know Davido loves blings and flamboyance but we never knew it’s to this extent.
You could remember that the singer also bought jewelry worth of 5million for his little daughter not long ago, he believes in money I guess that is why he keep hustling.
UNIVERSITY OF PORT HARCOURT Final Year Student Commits Suicide
A 500-Level Electrical Engineering student of the University of Port Harcourt, Prince Digbani has committed suicide shortly after announcing it via his WhatsApp story. The deceased took the action in his room on Monday, after repeatedly complaining to friends about his lack of fulfilment in life.
His friends said he had earlier told them of his intention and they strongly advised him against it.They added that he went home to his off-campus apartment and by 3:51 pm on Monday, started updating suicidal posts on his Whatsapp story.They said they called him severally but he refused to answer as his updates became more worrisome.
His co-tenants later broke his door and found him convulsing after taking a poisonous substance. He was then rushed to the Lulu-Briggs medical centre where he was pronounced dead.
Britain To Return a Stolen Bronze Cockerel to Great Benin Kingdom [Edo state of Nigeria].
The Benin bronze or ‘okukor’ was stolen from Benin City, now Nigeria, in the 19th century and given to Cambridge University’s Jesus College. Cambridge University’s Jesus College will return a bronze cockerel which was looted by the British in Benin City, now Nigeria, in the 19th century. The cockerel, which is referred to as the Benin bronze or ‘okukor’ was removed from display back in 2016 after students and academics who are part of the Legacy of Slavery Working Party (LSWP) took a vote and insisted it be repatriated to Nigeria, according to the BBC. This was shortly after students at Oxford University had called for the removal of the statue of British colonialist Cecil John Rhodes from Oriel College.
At least 900 bronze artifacts are still housed within the British Museum after imperialist troops occupied and pillaged what was then Benin City in 1897. The Daily Telegraph reports that in 2016, students managed to obtain the support of Prince Edun Akenzua, the great-grandson of King Oba Ovoramwen, from whose kingdom the bronze artifacts were looted. In an interview, Prince Edun said, “It is something I have been campaigning for myself for many years without much success.” The then 82-year-old added that, “It is about time these statues came home to their original owners.”
Speaking about the bronze cockerel which stood for years in the main hall of Jesus College, Master of Jesus College Sonita Alleyne says, “We are an honest community, and after thorough investigation into the provenance of the Benin bronze, our job is to seek the best way forward.” She denied that the college was attempting to erase history and claimed that the decision to return the Benin bronze was a result of the LSWP’s work.
