Goddy Anabor: Nigerian Billionaire Turned Taxi Driver, After Losing Fortune from Fraud

Published

on

In a remarkable turn of events, Goddy Anabor, once a billionaire businessman and publisher of the now-defunct Hearts magazine, has found himself behind the wheel of a taxi in the bustling streets of Lagos.

His fall from grace has been met with shock and intrigue, as Anabor was once revered by musicians and celebrities for his generosity and deep pockets.

However, rumors have surfaced that Anabor’s lavish lifestyle and wealth were founded on illicit activities. Allegedly, he made his fortune through what was then known as “Yahoo,” a term used to describe fraudulent schemes.

When questioned about his involvement in fraudulent activities, Anabor responded with a philosophical twist, insisting that “yahooing” was not a crime, but rather a way to reclaim stolen wealth from those who had wronged his ancestors. This defense has left many perplexed and wondering if there is more to his story.

Investigations suggest that Anabor’s ill-gotten gains were funneled into various business ventures, one of which was Heart magazine.

This publication, known for its romantic content, proved to be a goldmine for Anabor, bringing in considerable profits and attracting a dedicated readership.

For many, Heart magazine served as a gateway to sex education, providing a platform to learn about intimacy and relationships during their formative years.

However, the glory days of Anabor’s success came to an abrupt end when his fraudulent activities were exposed. Legal troubles and the subsequent collapse of his empire led to the demise of the once-thriving magazine.

Anabor was left with no choice but to reinvent himself, ultimately finding solace in the role of a taxi driver on the streets he used to dominate.

Anabor’s story serves as a cautionary tale, highlighting the dangers of ill-gotten wealth and the consequences that come with it.

As the investigation into his past continues, many are left wondering if there are more secrets waiting to be unraveled. For now, Goddy Anabor remains a recognizable face in Lagos, navigating the streets he once ruled, albeit in a different capacity.

How I Made A Vow 34 Years Ago Never To Watch Tv Again – Pope Francis

Published

on

Pope Francis has disclosed that he made a vow 34 years ago to stop watching television.

The revered clergyman said he placed himself on the self-imposed ban after stumbling across a smutty show.

He explained that the vulgar viewing was so bad for his conscience that he had to place a TV ban on himself.

The Supreme Pontiff said he hasn’t watched the box for almost 34 years.

He said: “I was watching television in the lounge with my fellow priests.

“It was July 15, 1990, and some scenes of an adult nature, to put it delicately, were being shown — something that was not good for the heart.

“Nothing risqué, of course, but when I went back to my room, I said to myself, ‘A priest cannot look at such things.’

And so, the following day, during the mass for the feast of the Madonna del Carmelo, I vowed never to watch television again.”

His Holinesss, 87, said that one of the last things he watched properly on TV was the fall of the Berlin Wall – in 1989.

He, however, stated that there have been a couple of exceptions to his self-imposed sanction.

Speaking via his new book “Life: My Story Through History”, Pope Francis said, “Only very occasionally do I allow myself to watch: for example, when a new president is sworn in, or I watched briefly once when there had been a plane crash.

“I switched it on, too, to follow Sunday mass while I was being treated at the Gemelli University Hospital in Rome.

“But I didn’t watch the coronation of Charles III, the new British king, for example, or many other important world events. Not out of disdain, but because I made a vow.”

Published

Pa Edwin Clark, Leader of the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), has urged the Federal Government to appoint a special taskforce to ensure the rescue of the remaining Chibok girls held by Boko Haram

The elder statesman made the call while briefing newsmen in Abuja on Monday at a ceremony to mark the Chibok girls’ 10th anniversary in captivity.

While expressing displeasure over the failure of past administrations to rescue the girls, Clark urged President Bola Tinubu to leave no stones unturned to secure the release of the girls.

“About 90 of them are still missing after 10 years. This should be a source of worry and concern to any government.

“Tinubu should appoint a special taskforce with brave soldiers, who are competent and transparent and not nepotic.

“Their main duty will be to travel at all times to Sambisa forest or where ever these citizens are, to look for these girls and rescue them.

“In giving this advice, I also want to add that a time limit should be given to them to carry out this task.”
