4 Bacolod City jail escapees surrender

first_imgIn an interview with members of themedia, the four escapees claimed they made the escape because they missed theirfamilies, especially Elangos who claimed that his family never visited him. On Tuesday afternoon, Sazon was thefirst to surrender through the assistance of Radyo Bandera Sweet FM Bacolod. Inthe evening, Capa yielded to the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group –Negros Occidental while Peñoso turned himself in through Bombo Radyo Bacolod. The four escapees were Sunny Capa, 22;Ely Lawrence Sazon, 20; Michael Peñoso, 25; and Jeffrey Elangos, 38, whoescaped at about 12:45 a.m. on Monday. BACOLOD City – Four detainees whobolted the lockup facility of Police Station 3 in Barangay Mandalagan hereseparately turned themselves in to authorities. When asked about the child abuse casefiled against him, Elangos admitted he hurt one of his children out ofdiscipline and he had no evil intentions over the incident. However, Culanag pointed out that evenif he and the other members of the station were removed from their post, thepolice operations will still continue. Major Ruel Culanag Police Station 3chief, said the other reason for the escape may be as a revenge by Sazon andCapa over the P9.1 million drug seizure. The detainees will possibly face malicious mischief chargesfor destroying the property of the police station. They cut off one of thesteel bars of the cell using a saw to escape. On Tuesday, the station fortifiedthe cell by adding more steel bars. (Witha report from PNA/PN) “Now that they are back, it will be totheir advantage. (Their surrender) will serve as a mitigating circumstance. Ifthey did not surrender, it would mean they are guilty. They can still defendthemselves since they have not been convicted yet,” said Lieutenant ColonelAriel Pico, spokesperson of the Bacolod City Police Office. Police are now waiting for the four’scommitment order for them to be moved to the custody of the Metro BacolodDistrict Jail. Culanag said both suspects used theescape in order to ruin the station’s career effectively relieving him fromduty and also affecting the station’s anti-illegal drugs drive.last_img read more

I don’t look for records, they look for me – Ronaldo

We did everything we could and we had plenty of chances.”Ronaldo is the all time leading scorer in the Champions League with 127 goals, holds the record for the most goals in a single Champions League season, is Real Madrid’s all time highest scorer and Portugal’s most capped player and record scorer.The first five goals of Ronaldo’s career were scored for Portugal’s Sporting between 2002 and 2003.He then scored 118 goals in 232 appearances during six seasons with Manchester United and remarkably averaged more than a goal a game for Real Madrid, scoring 450 in 438 appearances over the course of nine seasons.In just over one season with his current club Juventus, he notched a further 32 goals in 51 matches.In spite of the defeat, Portugal remained second in Group G with 11 points from six games, one ahead of Serbia, and will qualify for Euro 2020 if they win their remaining matches at home to Lithuania and away to Luxemburg.“We played too much with our hearts and not enough with our heads,” said Coach Fernando Santos.Tags: Cristiano RonaldoJuventuslast_img read more

Rangers Rekindle Memories of Glory Days

first_imgShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram By Sam NnajiIt is hard to imagine what winning a league title was like three decades ago. Were medals doled out to the winners? Was there a guard of honour? A parade down the streets throughout the city? Perhaps they partied all night and maybe they got a grand reception from the state’s chief executive? Maybe. But evidently those glory days were characterized by battle chants and victory choruses, new fans were converted on a daily basis and the match venues of the league winners were packed full long before kickoff.Between 1974 and 1984, Rangers International had won six league titles, five FA Cups, an African Cup Winners Cup (now CAF Confederation Cup) title in 1977 amidst regular appearances on the continent. Undoubtedly one of the two biggest teams in the country, they regularly supplied playing personnel for the national teams. The Enugu club had built for themselves a very strong side with a fine rich tradition. That was in the days when some of today’s league heavyweights were still teething, trying to feed on the whatever crumbs the then big boys had leftover, some others had not even been formed.Strangely, Rangers shockingly went limp in the years that followed and a steady decline set in. The giant was unable to reproduce the performances that characterized the fruitful years. The momentum moved to the likes of Iwuanyanwu Nationale (now Heartland), Julius Berger and more recently Enyimba and Kano Pillars and the only positive was that somehow they ensured that year after year, a Premier League status was ensured. The younger generation most of whom either never witnessed those conquests or were too young to understand were left to make do with tales and pictures whenever memories were brought to the fore.But the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu refreshed memories of what those glory days were like when it hosted over 20,000 fans in Rangers 2-1 win over Nasarawa United in the ground’s first Friday night game. Friday night games have become very popular in the league in recent times but this most recent edition was unprecedented, a perfect setting in all ramifications. The blazing floodlights announced to fans within its reach that indeed Ogui Road was the ‘happening place’ that moment. The fans heeded the invitation and into the grounds they throng to thousands of others watching, eagerly awaiting kickoff. It seemed everyone in the city was there; fathers, mothers, children, old faces and young ones. The bright neon lights from the new electronic scoreboard adding to the lovely spectacle.Beyond just a nice Friday evening gathering, this team had wooed Enugu fans with their breathtaking displays since the start of the season. Imama Amapakabo’s boys play what probably is the most scintillating football in the championship. The deadly quartet of Bobby Clement, Godwin Aguda, Obinna Nwobodo and Chisom Egbuchulam (acronym CANE from their last names) have terrorized defences to calamitous effect so far this season; their movement off and on the ball, the flash of their attacks and their potency in front of goal when it required.It was not surprising hence when that crowd held its breath in hope and anticipation when Chisom Egbuchulam set out with a trademark run in the third minute toward the Nasarawa goal. Expectedly so from a player who has six goals so far this term. They collectively heaved disappointingly when his strike flew over the target. Unlucky not to be on the scoresheet but his assist handed Rangers the opener. A blur of explosive bursts, he was at the heart of almost everything Rangers created on the night. Beyond a doubt, he looks to have come of age this season, symbolic of his team that had disappointed in the recent past but looks like it means business this time round.Beyond just watching the action unfold on the pitch, the fans were having themselves a great time. One group situated around the halfway line and facing the VIP gallery were partying all through. Clad in various attires and with diverse musical instruments, they were playing their drums, lighting up flames, waving the club’s flags while a few others jangled bells. The rest who ‘unprepared’ for the ensuing carnival quickly joined the party when the opportunity called for it. First was in the 23rd minute when Clement’s firm header from Egbuchulam’s corner-kick broke Nasarawa United’s resistance. ‘Holy, holy holy, holy Enugu Rangers is another champion!’ echoed round the stadium, some were standing, others clinched fists in solidarity.It was not a select few singing, both old and young were as one, loud in their voices. Next was the circle after circle of Mexican waves that swept through and through the galleries in the second half. The joyous expression as each section roared and lifted their arms in unison as it went by meant they were having a time of their life. This was different, this was unique, this was fever pitch excitement, beyond what is common in these regions.Friday night’s experience epitomizes more than just the goings on at Rangers right now it symbolizes a rejuvenated league itself to a greater extent. Beautiful eye-catching football is back, more and more fans are joining the party, surely the glory days look on its way back.For Rangers, what had been a whisper is getting louder by the day and although only the bravest of their fans can afford making the assertions at the moment with confidence, the rest of the Premier League pack are taking notice; Rangers look the real deal this season, a 32-year title wait could be over by October.last_img read more

Capello also in favor of Atleti at Anfield: “I loved it”

first_img“It was a surprise to see the Atlético beat Liverpool. Simeone planned a great party. You can’t point to anything. I liked your game so much … I could only do what he did, “said the Italian coach. your Liverpool? ” In this battle there have been many voices that have come out in favor of the Argentine coach of Atlético although there are also those who have defended Klopp himself, who already recognized him at the press conference after the Anfield match: “Nor am I a good loser. I am the worst person when I lose“ It was Berbatov. It was Willem van Hanegem. It was the same Trippier. Everyone, former soccer players and footballers, with words in the same direction: Klopp, the coach whose eternal smile froze ten days ago, against Atlético de Madrid. His invincible Liverpool fell, barely spotless, two defeats just before facing Atlético for the first time, in the knockout round of the Champions League. He lost first there, in Madrid, and then here, at his home, Anfield. And the bitterness could be felt in his words as soon as the game ended. Because there he was, in his direct criticism of the way Atlético played, his way of beating him. “I don’t understand Atlético but they are a fair winner.” The last criticism comes in the last hours: another compliment to Cholo and his game. From a partner. The former coach of Real Madrid or Milan, Fabio Capello, in this newspaper two days ago in which he spoke of the weeks without football during this confinement caused by the coronavirus health crisis. Owen’s defenseIn his favor these days there have also been statements like those of ex-Madrid Owen. “Pplease, Forgive me if I don’t share the inevitable nonsense that Simeone gave a master class. There is nothing great about putting 11 top-notch footballers behind the ball. Liverpool won completely“He assured in BT Sport, in line with the technician’s own words net, against the thought that his coach, Fabio Capello, was.last_img read more

LET’S LECTURE: Nathan Tulay Again?

first_imgWhat is this thing with President Sirleaf and recycling people? She has re-appointed Mr. Nathan Tulay as managing director of the Liberia Water & Sewer Corporation (LWSC), the company that is responsible for producing and delivering potable water to us.This is the same Nathan Tulay that she sacked some years ago. There was some talk of self-dealing. There was a bid for a US1 million contract funded by the European Commission. Bids were submitted, and then overnight they were opened, not in public, but in secret and the contract awarded to a company in which Mr. Tulay was alleged to have an undisclosed, secret interest. The company was operating out of his house next to Greenland Supermarket.So, why is the president bringing Mr. Tulay back to the same position? Is she telling us that she was wrong for sacking him in the first place? Or does she want us to believe that he is a reformed man and that he will not engage in acts of corruption again? Or does she have a narcissistic impulse to allow him an opportunity to rake in like many of her other officials are doing in the twilight of her administration because we are in “injury time” now?Some people believe there is a more sinister motive afoot here. They argue that President Sirleaf has made this appointment in order to give the Unity Party a leg up in the forthcoming elections. You see, Mr. Tulay is from Lofa County, the same county that the Vice President calls home. Perhaps, the argument goes, this appointment is an attempt to burnish the Vice President’s campaign team with yet another high profile foot soldier in the onward march to Election 2017, in which Vice President Boakai is a declared candidate.Should we be worried, should our donor partners be worried that Mr. Tulay will take advantage of this new-found opportunity to once again indulge in questionable deals, doling out contracts to cronies willing to skim some off the top to fill the Unity Party’s campaign coffers? Given the deep problems the corporation has, the solution to which may involve a great deal of spending over the next two years, that fear is not totally unfounded.To recap, according to an allafrica.com report, the corporation is losing revenue at the rate of US$31,500 per day, almost US$950,000 per month, US$11.5 million, because 75 percent of the water it produces is not reaching customers. And in my last column I recommended that the corporation consider awarding performance-based service contracts to private sector contractors who can assist it to solve this problem. Given the history of our public corporations, it is entirely possible that a corrupt LWSC management could award service contracts that conveniently omit the “performance based” feature, with the end objective of generating healthy under-the-table commissions for itself and its political masters. That is the real danger here.So, the relevant question here is, can President Sirleaf not find anyone else in the Republic of Liberia with the requisite management experience and business acumen to rescue LWSC other than Mr. Nathan Tulay? If she thinks not, then I suggest she look again, scour her database and come up with another name. And if she wants, I will gladly offer my assistance, pro bono, to help her and her LWSC board of directors conduct a search and find a suitable candidate.Water, like electricity, is a critical infrastructure requirement for development. If we get it right, investors will appear, our economy will rebound and our young people will have jobs. If we continue the way we have been doing, President Sirleaf’s Agenda for Transformation will remain just that: a worthless piece of paper. There is an old saying that a plan without a credible mechanism for execution is just a wish.The writer is a certified public accountant and a businessman.
