A federal high court in Lagos removed business mogul, Alhaji Aliko Dangote as President of Nigerian Stock Exchange [NSE].
The Court, presided over by Justice Lambo Akanbi ruled on the application by some aggrieved shareholders of African Petroleum Plc, who sought to set aside Dangote’s election as NSE president.
The AP shareholders had sued Dangote, Nova Finance and Securities Limited, NSE and others over alleged massive manipulation of AP shares.
But is clear contravention of the court order, the Nigerian Stock Exchange went ahead on August 6, with its scheduled election, at which Dangote was elected President of the Exchange.
Consequent upon this, the shareholders brought another application, through their counsel, Mr Onyebuchi Aneakor, praying the court to set aside Dangote's election.**

An award-winning video director was unmasked Thursday as a brutal, bizarre serial breeder who repeatedly raped his daughters to create a "pure" bloodline.
Aswad Ayinde, who won an MTV award for directing The Fugees' "Killing Me Softly," fathered six kids with his daughters from the mid-1980s to 2002 - and delivered the babies himself, New Jersey prosecutors said.
Ayinde, 51, who most recently lived in Paterson, N.J., also had nine kids with his ex-wife, Beverly, and at least three more with two other women in Brooklyn, court records show.
"He said the world was going to end, and it was just going to be him and his offspring and that he was chosen," Beverly Ayinde testified at a pre-trial hearing.
Also known as Charles McGill, Ayinde faces the first of five trials next month - one for each daughter he allegedly violated, said Lisa Squitieri, the Passaic County prosecutor handling the case.
Ayinde, held on $1 million bond, was hit with 27 charges including aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, lewdness, child endangerment, aggravated criminal sexual contact and criminal sexual contact.
Ayinde? Oh Lord, don't let this monster be a Nigerian.
What a sick man...

Speaking to journalists yesterday in Abuja, the Fulani leader and secretary Sultan’s Farmer/Cattle Rearers Conflict Committee, Sale Bayari, said the recent mishap was caused by failure of both the Plateau State Government and the Presidential Committee on Jos Crisis to clearly address the losses of the Fulanis in past crisis.
Bayero, who claimed to be a none stakeholder in the crisis, also said it was unfair for the police to continue to hold the 49 Fulanis arrested so far, adding that what happened was a complete case of jungle justice.
