CAN President, Oritsejafor, admits ownership of cash-stacked jet seized in South Africa

Pastor Oritsejafor left, is a close associate of President Jonathan.

A private jet seized weekend by South African authorities with a stack of $10 million in cash meant for arms purchase, belongs to the head of the Nigerian Christian community, the aviation ministry confirmed Tuesday.

Ayo Oritsejafor, the president of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, had however leased the jet to another party, a top official of the ministry told PREMIUM TIMES, meaning Mr. Oritsejafor had no control over the use of the aircraft.

Mr. Oritsejafor’s church also confirmed the ownership in a separate statement Tuesday. The church said the pastor has a “residual interest” in Eagle Air, a company that manages the aircraft.

“On behalf of Pastor Oritsejafor, we can confirm that although he holds an interest in Eagle Air, the aircraft in question is not operated by Pastor Oritsejafor,” the statement by The Word of Life Bible Church said.

The aircraft was leased to, and is operated by Green Coast Produce Limited since August 2, the statement added.

In an earlier statement, Eagle Air Company admitted ownership of the jet held in South Africa for conveying $9.3 million cash for alleged arms deal.

Two Nigerians and an Israeli were caught with the money allegedly meant for buying and supplying weapons to the Nigeria intelligence services.

City Press, a South Africa-based newspaper had reported that the trio, who are already facing investigations, landed at Lanseria International Airport, Johannesburg on September 5, in the jet from Abuja with the money loaded in three suitcases.

The spokesperson for the South African Revenue Service, SARS, Adrian Luckay, confirmed that customs officers became suspicious when the passenger luggage were unloaded and scanned.

In a statement by its General Manager, Emmanuel Ohaeri, Eagle Air Company also claimed holding a “residual interest” in the aircraft, a Bombader Challenger 600, Registration No 808HG.

The company however said it leased the aircraft to Green Coast Produce Limited since August 2.

The statement said, “Our attention has been drawn to press reports in respect of an aircraft (Bombardier Challenger 600, Registration No N808HG) in which our company holds a residual interest.

“We wish to confirm that the said aircraft has since the 2nd of August 2014 been leased to and is operated by Green Coast Produce Limited.

The company and Mr. Ortisejafor’s church advised that all media enquiries in respect of the day-to-day operations of the aircraft be directed to the management of Green Coast Produce Limited.

In yet another statement, the management of Green Coast Produce Company Limited confirmed the aircraft had been leased to it, saying such transactions were normal in the aviation industry.

The company explained that the aircraft was in turn hired from it by one John Ishyaku and therefore would not be liable for any alleged infractions either in Nigeria or South Africa after the hire.

The company’s director, Shima Adun said in the statement that “On the 5th of September 2014 the aircraft was hired from us by a John Ishyaku. The charter to John Ishyaku was upon the following documented terms: (a) Depart Abuja-Johannesburg on the 5th of September 2014 (b) Return to Abuja on the 6th of September 2014 (c) To wait and return with the passengers”.

The company said as with every other aircraft charter company, its knowledge of the cargo carried on the aircraft was in accordance with the information provided by ABC Limited.

“All cargoes were accompanied by passenger who could readily defend the contents. We are not and cannot be privy to any alleged extraneous cargo transported on the aircraft other than that declared in the agreed terms of hire,” the firm said.

“We are not liable and cannot be construed as a party to any alleged infractions, either in Nigeria or South Africa as he case may be, after the hire of the aircraft,” it added.

    So we have got another addition to the list of our “Sheiks”. This time around it is “Sheik” John Ishiyaku. As the picture becomes clearer, the whole thing is becoming more interesting in that I haven’t heard a name of any “real” Boko Haram. May God save us!

  • Ali Falalu

    NOW WE KNOW WHO ARE THE ARMS SUPPLIERS FOR BOKO HARAM

    • endingNaija

      Given the emerging news about ownership of plane and the ludicurous explanations, you mean arms suppliers for Boko Haram and Niger Delta terrorists? Just asking my broda.

  • Dapo Sekoni

    No be Nigeria? There must always be cover ups and counter accusations..

    Wonder what a “man of gods” (not my own GOD) needs a private jet for in the first place…

    All of them now lay their treasure on earth rather than heaven contrary to Jesus’ instruction…

    Only GOD knows those that serve HIM…

    What’s Ortisejafor gonna do with arms? Is he planning religious war with Boko Haram? GEJ surround himself with people with questionable character. Birds of the same feather.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      Pastor Oritsejafor’s explanation reads like a perfect Mafia-style use of blinds upon blinds to remove the source of the order from the executor.

      Even then, it is badly flawed.

      Will the Presidency and the CBN tell us they do not have a handle on that sum of money – in foreign currency – moving around within the Nigerian economy?

      This is a black leg operation sanctioned from the very top and I can only smell treason in it.

        Badly flawed sir.hear them.”we wish to confirm that the said aircraft has since the 2nd of August 2014 been leased to and is operated by Green coast produce limited”. A critical analysis of this statement tells you they have been ferrying ‘produce'(mangos and banana cash) since then until Atiku (through Zuma) caught up with them in South Africa.

  • mib

    The jet and the cash should be confiscated, and those arrested should b interrogated with a view of Exposing the main kingpin. If justice can’t b found in naija. South Africa please give us justice.

    • Olu Ade

      Here we go again…It is a planned work, they knew if Alarm blew, they need something to say…So, make it up that, “the aircraft was leased to, and is operated by Green Coast Produce Limited since August 2″…About 6 weeks before they embark on their hidden mission…

      …LET US ALL SEARCH OUR SOULS ANG ASK OURSELVES, WHAT WILL WE HAVE SAID IF THE AIRCRAFT BELONGED TO THE OPPOSITION. WE WILL ALL BE SAYING IMPOUND THE AIRCRAFT, KILL THEM ALL.

      WHAT DOES NIGERIAN LAW SAYS OR WHAT WILL OUR POLICE DO IF YOU GIVE YOUR CAR TO ARMED ROBBERS WHO TAKE IT ON THEIR ROBBERY OUTING? YOU ARE AS GUILTY AS THE ROBBERS.

      DID ANYBODY REMEMBER WHAT A GOVERNOR IN THE EAST DID TO THE HOTEL WHERE HUMAN HEAD WAS FOUND BEHIND THEIR FENCE? THE HOTEL WAS DEMOLISHED!

      • Truthometer

        Let us just imagine for a second, that this aircraft belongs to Rotimi Amaechi or Bola Tinubu. Can you imagine what the leopard tamer (Lion Mbu) and Marilyn Ogar (PDP publicity secretary or DSS spokesperson) would be up to by now? Your guess is as good as mine.

        • Olu Ade

          Thanks Truthometer…and Nigerian government, State security service and CBN are yet to respond to the claim that the 3 criminals were in South Africa to buy arms for Nigerian security service through the back door…Anyway, Mr. Dumbo always say, “I don’t give a damn” Anyway, Dia ris God ooo…

      Reverend Stephen Davis said in an interview with The Cable, an online publication, recently that, “I have been involved in peace negotiations in Nigeria since 2004 when President Olusegun Obasanjo invited me to intervene in the Niger Delta crisis. I spoke with Asari Dokubo and took him to Obasanjo at the Presidential Villa in Abuja. Because Asari is a Muslim, the Muslim boys in the North heard about me and warmed up to me. I did a report in 2005 on the threat of extremism among young northern Muslims.
      “Obasanjo’s security chiefs dismissed the report with a wave of the hand. They said no such thing existed. In 2007, President Umaru Musa Yar’adua, who desired to end the militancy in the Niger Delta, invited me and made me presidential envoy. I toured all the northern states. I went to the country’s borders. I came back with a report that there
      were some budding sects in the North. The national security adviser (NSA) at the time, Gen. Sarki Mukhtar, dismissed the report. He said they didn’t exist. A succession of NSAs dismissed all these reports and allowed the groups to flourish.

      “By the time President Goodluck Jonathan came to power in 2011, these groups had spread all over the North. They had cells and commanders in 16 out of the 19 northern states. President Jonathan called me and sought my opinion on the best way to tackle the militancy and bring it to an end….On their demands, he said:
      “They wanted training for the widows of their deceased fighters. They asked the government to give these women cottage training. They, ironically wanted education for the children of their deceased members. That is why I don’t call them Boko Haram (“western education is a taboo”).

    Lagos State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has charged Governor Babatunde Fashola of misappropriating worth of N160 billion loan which will better the everyday living of Lagosians within the affordable housing, transportation, education, medicals, and other facilities throughout the state.

    State PDP Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, in a statement said that Fashola’s explanation on how the loan was expended, during his inspection of the Light Rail project, was weak, unsatisfactory and diversionary.

    He said that that the Debt Management Office, DMO, which recently stated that the Lagos State Government is exclusively owing N1 billion out of the total N3 billion owed by all the 36 states in Nigeria is enough fact to justify the misappropriation of funds by the state government.

    Gani said Governor Fashola’s claim that he spent the money on infrastructure such as the ongoing light rail project is untenable, but an additional expose on Lagos PDP’s stand that the state has been plunged into irreparable economic damage, owing to the monumental debt profile.

    He said: “This N160 billion debt apart from other local and foreign loans and bonds running into over N1 trillion is baffling considering that the state is not enjoying commensurate services and infrastructure expected of a city like Lagos.

    “Therefore, it is our demand that the governor explain to Lagosians in details, the needless loans owed by the state. We also call on the Economic Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to take necessary action on the debt profile of the state.”

    Story- story! Story. Tell that to the marines. The aircraft was in South Africa to buy weapons for the enforcement of anarchy during the elections of 2015 when Nigerians are poised to vote for change due to the dismal performance of the current powers that are. Witness the vituperations of Asari Dokubo and company at every opportunity available to him. The South Afican government has to explain to nigerians the rationale behind the haste with which the impounded aircraft was released. Who mounted pressure for the release of the aircraft? It is clear that post-apartheid South Africa has not been keen to treat the people of Nigeria who stood with her in the days of their travails. Rather they seem to be conniving with our bandit elite to make life unbearable for our citizens. We demand a thorough and open inestigation into this issue where people took cash to procure weapons from South Africa and the intended use of the weapons to be so procured.

    Chief Tom Ikimi has said Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s inconsistencies and not too good memory in recent times, derived from excessive consumption of drugs.

    Ikimi, who said he was glad to be part and parcel of the founding of the Action Congress (AC), Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and the creation of the APC, while expressing surprise at the welcome home reception accorded him by PDP members and party stalwarts who in their hundreds stormed Benin Airport, described APC as a party whose leadership comprises people who engage in plotting against one another.

    “But I want to clarify that I read the kind of response the leader from Lagos, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, tried to make and I think he has lost it all. For once, I think he has a memory problem and I think the memory problem derives from his excessive consumption of various things”.

    On the fear that he may likely sell the party to the ruling PDP, coupled with the purported betrayal of late MKO Abiola as reasons why he was denied the APC chairmanship position, the former foreign affairs minister said, “Did I need to spend twelve years to create a party in order to sell it? I created the party, I did not join the party.“

    “First of all, if he has a good memory, Abiola was in SDP not in NRC. I in NRC cannot betray someone who is in PDP. Secondly I stopped being chairman of NRC in 1992. Abiola’s elections was in 1993. The National Chairman was Dr Hamed Kusamatu who was his own kinsman. How can I become the chairman to betray Abiola when I was not Kusamtu. Even if it was NRC, between Kusamotu and myself was Mrs Okolu. So there were two other chairmen before me.

    “Now SPD went to election, the first foreign minister was Baba Gana Kingible who was his running mate. How could I have been the one who betrayed him? I did not join Abacha’s government until 1994. So, tell Bola Tinubu to get his historical facts correct”

      It is very obvious that this redeem of satan is one of the sypathizers of ikimi who is so anxious to say something in defence of his master and as a result referring sdp as spd, and here is he saying someone else is sovering from memory lost while it is him who has simply gone mad as a result of over zelious in trying to impress his master. I wonder why someone will say he single handedlly form a political party like APC, just because his selfish ambition was aborted by well meaning Nigerians that made up APC.

  • The next person that God will expose and thoroughly disgrace is one Reverend Emmanuel Bosun a pastor of the Redeemed Church. This man participated in the national conference as a delegate. He has just released an audio message which is currently circulating among Christians in the south west and the middle belt. In the message, this evil pastor pretended he was defending the interest of Christians in Nigeria but ended up campaigning for PDP. The shameless pastor claimed he was exposing the plot of Muslims to islamise the country. He talked about how Islam conquered Turkey and how it can also conquer Nigeria using the ignorance and complacency of Christians. To cap the message, he specifically called APC an Islamic party and urged Christians not to vote for the party. Now, if there are two major parties in the country and Reverend Emmanuel Bosun urges Christians not to vote for APC, he’s invariably campaigning for President Jonathan and the PDP. Reverend Bosun is ethically and morally wrong to drag the Nigerian Church into partisan politics.

    Individual Christians are free to participate in politics; they can stand for elections and and take part in electing leaders of their choice from any party. But the Church as a body should shun partisan politics, otherwise politicians and greedy pastors will bring shame to the Church.

    It is time for Christians to be wise.

    What kind of a pastor is pastor Patrick Oritsejafor the CAN president, who has turned christianity-religion on its head allowing his personal jet to convey S9.2 million dollars Nigerian public funds which president Jonathan errand two-Nigerians and an Israeli tried to smuggled into South Africa?
    They had thought South Africa would be as loose,unguarded and security lax as Nigeria airport like MMI,LIkaja Lagos through which late Patrick Sawyer-the ebola virus infected Liberian gotten entry into Nigeria.The seized S9.2 million dollars have been seized and would be confiscated by South African state.Even, the private jet too should be seized for being used to conveyed the smuggled S9.2 million dollars into South Africa undeclared.

    The truth will always prevail. So far so good, all those that have been accused to have links with boko haram are associates of Mr. President, and they are yet to be prosecuted. I don’t Oritsejafor as a pastor, but as a politician that hides undernthe guise of religious leader. He should be thoroughly prosecuted.

  • Chiotu Nnamdi

    This amounts to putting logic on the head.There is nothing wrong with security agencies using third parties to purchase arms.This is the practice in most climes.we are passing through security challenges and critical agencies have arms contacts around the world.security issues should not be politicised.

      • Idy

        Very well said! Thanks for pointing that out!

  • robo

    Jesus is Lord! I thought we were told that Nigerian pastors need jets to meet pastoral demands across the world. Ayo personally lamented his ordeal at an airport waiting for commercial flight in justifying his ownership of a jet. It is now for leasing since August 5? The Pastor has set up an airline. Oooohs! do not say anything about a ‘ Man of God’ (apologies to divorcee-to-be Chris). I used to have a pastor who was always talking about how God dealt with those that gossiped against Moses, till he was told that he was too far from the character of Moses!

    • Idy

      Lol! Only God knows his people! They’re all deceitful people and would keep using the name of God to steal and deceive people!!

  • Boltonboyan

    Almost 10million dollars found in a private jet meant to purchase arms! What does Jonathan need another another 1trilliin naira for? There is God ooo.

    • Idy

      There really is God! He would save us from Oga Jonas misrule and mismanagement of funds!!

  • Ahmad

    Two things can be alluded here. (1) CAN president on behalf of his pay masters went to buy arms for an organisation other than the Nigerian Army. (2) PDP sent one of their errand boy, ( Ayo Boy) to buy INEC ballot papers ahead of 2015 knowing fully well that INEC had been printing her ballot papers and other sensitive election materials from South Africa. Either way the medium of transaction and dirty deal remains same.CAN through Ayo.

  • Dankasa

    So Mr. Chiotu Nnamdi Government need to carry money to anywhere in the World to transact business with it, all these policies and rules of law with regards to money transfer is not applicable in Nigeria when it comes to CAN or Jonathan administration, ko? My friend don’t be sentimental, international transaction is not like that unless if it involve illegal arms dealings like that of Lord Ayo and co. which one need to come with physical cash. Do you think this will continue? Innocent lives?? Allah have many ways of dealing with issues and this revealation is one them, but mind you Igbo are extremely exposed to dangers in this our region by this issue of Boko Haram because we all know that they are deeply involve in it and will really pay for it in the north when GEJ gone, write this and keep, I am telling you what is in our mind so….

    • nigerianer

      That is what is in your mind, you alone, as for me I don’t support crusifying others for the sin of other/ others. What has Igbo got to do with the personal agenda of GEJ or Pastor Ayo Oritsejafo just like we Muslems are not in support of the barbaric act of those scrupulous undesirable animals that call themselfs muslems (boko haram) meanwhile they are just ridiculing Islam and Muslims at large. My dear we should ve good mind and try to built a peaceful and loving nation so that together we shall forge ahead.
      I strongly believe in the oneness of our country Nigeria.

    • Mr. D

      Dankasa, you will never have your way. You have killed the Igbos and have continued killing the Igbos. I however blame those Igbos still in your region…They should either leave the region and allow you lazy guys to dwindle away into oblivion or forget Christian love and pickup Jihad and kill you guys as well. Do you really think you can stand any real igbo man? Bastard bloodsucking demons

      • detective

  • nigerianer

    I ‘m still waiting for the PDP spoke man and falana both of whom call APC with all sort of names to enlight us on this development. By there fruit we shall all know them.

  • Mr Dundee

    In his much-publicised open letter to Jonathan last year, Obasanjo did claim that Jonathan was training snipers, it was also widely reported that the Israelis were contracted by governor Jang of Plateau State (and the leader of factional Governors forum) to train so-called ‘civil defence force’ (i.e. private militia outfit as obtained in war-turned Iraq, Central African Republic etc) that have no affiliation whatsoever with the constitutionally recognised security forces (Police, Army, etc), at the height of the Oduah scandal last year, the duo of Jonathan, Jang and Pastor Oritsejafor were in Israel for ‘pilgrimage’ and did meet Israeli government officials. If one put these facts together with the Oritsejafor’s support for Jonathan and the threat by Asari Dokubo (a criminal turned billionaire by Jonathan) that blood will be spilled if Jonathan was not ‘re-elected’ in 2015, any discerning mind will realise that Jonathan and his gang are sponsoring and training thugs and criminals and stoking arms in preparation for the 2015 elections. Otherwise, how can any bonafide security services use cash, private jet and a foreigner to buy arms; that’s is beyond common sense. Similarly, how can a government that claimed a few days ago Modu Sherif (a private citizen) was under investigation for sponsoring BH provide same suspect with 200-strong armed security to visit and condole a ‘friend’ in Maiduguri. How can any reasonable person believe that such a suspect who is being provided same level of security as the President of the country be investigated by the same authority that protect him? May God save Nigeria from the evil mechanisations of its wicked leaders and their collaborators.

    • Chima

      what a conjecture

  • Gbo_lee

    This is the beginning of the end of the GEJ maladministration. The lies and deceit wee have endured over the past 4 years are simply enough. It is all very clear now. Sheriff started it,government provides funds,Ihejirika destabilizes the army and Oritsejafor gets the arms in. There is no excuse whatsoever to flying such money in secrecy into another country,the FG should just stop with this habit of lying to the general public.

    • Shomo

      For the Christians, My question remained .. will you ignore if the jet was owned by Sultan, I guess there will no be a single Christian who will think otherwise or clear him out of this mess, rather say he is innocent not a single will depend him, believe me, rral bias, double standards infact, but I was still wondering why some Christians still cant and will never believe on real facts.

  • Gbo_lee

    Oritsejafor has always hit me as a suspicious fellow. His activities are never for the christian community but for political gains…Jonathan has managed to involve himself in this circle of travesty against the Nigerian people and this is completely unforgivable from him.

    • Idy

      My point exactly! Very corny and witty person.. He’s going to have a taste of his medicine soon enough!!

          Chima continue to deceive yourself. when we say clueless and dumbo…its about solution to Nigeria’s problems,infrastructural development and creative re-engineering of the economy. No one is saying he is clueless about devilish planning and cunning ways of behaviour.After all Abacha was never short of evil deeds despite his short comings in smartness in good governance and economic creativity. From your statement you are as evil as them.

This duty we all owe Nigeria and its leaders (spiritual and physical)

  • Alex

    There are too many unconnected links, unanswered questions here. When and how did the private jet met for the propagation of gospel turned around and become a tool for arm smuggling?

    • Idy

      My brother that’s the question a whole lot of us are asking and no answer to that!! I no time everything will add up!!

  • Bashir Sulaiman

    This scandal is another pointer towards who are Boko Haram and their sponsors.So does it mean Nigeria can no more purchase its weapons through formal means until it sends certain individuals with money stashed in suit cases?Think about this. Again,let’s assume that Oritsejafor hired the air craft out as he claimed, the question is,in such an important deal considering the present international crimes and terrorism, can he just hire the air craft out without knowing the specific use it is going to be put into?If not for anything but just to protect his own image as the President of CAN? So, for anybody now to come out exonerating him from this illicit deal is very unjust and lope sided.It is only an unbiased investigation(which is rare here,any way) can exonerate him but not any individual without an iota of proof of his innocence.

    • Chima

      @bashirsulaiman:disqus, I am certain that you read this report very well. However I am surprised you believe special investigation is required to find find out wether Mr Oritsejafor leased the plane out and further lease was made to another entity who used this plane. Educated Nigeria should help the not-so-educated and less matured to uphold truth without creating non-existent scandals.

      • Idy

        Are you sure your following the stories and how everything is unfolding by the day, I mean, lives are involved here! A whole country is astake here and you rant rubbish, trying to justify your dumbo and his colleagues!! I see where the future of nigeria is headed!!

  • Usman

    what goes around turns around, I see where Boko Haram gets it’s weapons and perhaps how Ihejirika gets involved, let us keep going, the truth shall be unveiled

    • Idy

      My brother you’ve spoken well!! It’s no news anymore who the real sponsors are… What in God’s name will a leader of a religious association be doing with that amnt of money stacked in his jet.. Only God can save us in this country!!

      • Chima

        Are responding to the report or your imagined report. even Premium times reported that the man of God has nothing to do with the cargo or the use of the plane.

          Very funny! Like it’s not all propaganda and this isn’t nigeria, where anything can be gotten away with!! Do not try to justify these people, it’s obvious there’s more to this story they’re telling us… These so called religious leaders know more than we all can see, that’s the truth, accept or not! Do they not pray for nigeria daily, why are we still where we are, abeg these people know the evil deeds behind Nigeria’s lack behind and are also part of it!!!

  • OLANIPEKUN

    When next i see Pastor Oritsejafor holding a bible it will always cross my mind that there may be a ‘Golden Gun’ in there. Like in American Cowboy Film of yester years!!!
    If leading Islamic Clerics can be Arms Dealer in years gone by (Under Military regime) so can CAN President. Its a free country. After all Northerners don’t have the monopoly of Arms Supply, South-South can do better!!!
    The greater sin will be CAN allowing him to lead the association in the aftermath of the this great scandal!!!!!!!

    • Mosaku 147

      Are you now giving him a new title? ie,’Pastor with the golden gun’.007 will sure be envious if he hears our very own and dear pastor has bought himself a better golden gun for the princely sum of $9.3m usd somewhere in west africa were schools are on forced holiday because of EVD.

    Oritsejafor is a man of satan because satan came ti steal, kill and destroy. Henceforth he should be known as man of satan and not man of god as his activities like arms dealing are satanic.

  • Yusuf Ismaila

    All of you guys have spoken well. My question is ” What would the comments be had it been that the money was found in jet belonging to the Sultan of Sokoto, and the money was equally found to be meant for the purchase of weapons”?

    • Dazly

      hahahahah they wont reply u …

  • Owo

    Jet is no longer used for preaching the gospel but to carry stolen money to buy instruments of mass destruction. Oritsejafor is no longer preaching the gospel of peace but the gospel of destruction, hence he is now a man of satan.

  • wode

    Who says prayers are no more answered?

    This is one of the confirmations that the God Almighty is there, He hears and answers prayers. The prayers of the masses is that God reveals those behind the problems we are facing in the country and put them to shame. This is a critical case of prayers being answered.

    We have heard in the news in the past different vehicles caught with arms and ammunition but at the end of the day we wouldn’t here anything afterwards. But for this, nowhere to hide because it is a high caliber arm smuggling.

    Let Nigerians continue to pray, others would soon be reveled and put to shame.

        Your are imbecile, go back to your history teacher to lesson you the biography of Oritsejafor, from childhood to his so called God work, to what led to his sack and subsequent formation of his Church, to what led to the withdrawal of Catholic Church form CAN. Oritsejafor is criminal and therefore should be treated as such. Goodluck.

    • Guest

      Olodo!

  • Vivian

    Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor has no defence. A lease of his aeroplane does not immunize him.
    He does not need to be in total control of the aeroplane to be liable for this criminal activity.
    The nexus required by law is his confession that he has a ‘residual interest’ in the aeroplane.
    He is therefore criminally answerable to the extent of the ‘residual interest’ that he’s confessed.

    This is a clear evidence that PDP president Ebele Jonathan,pastor Ayo Oritsejafor,former Borno State governor Modu Sheriff,General Ihejerika and others in their political league are the main sponsors of Boko Haram insurgents in North-East, Nigeria.When Nigerians vote out Ebele Jonathan in 2015 presidential poll there would be guarantee of peace and stability in all parts of Nigeria.
