Sheik Gumi On The Verge Of Police Arrest Over ‘Yakowa-Azazi’ Death Comments

                                 sheik_ahmad_gumi
Police detectives are studying audio and video tapes of the sermons in which Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Sheik Ahmad Gumi, asserted that the late governor of Kaduna State, Mr. Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa perished along with former National Security Adviser, General Andrew Azazi while strategizing against Northern Nigerian Muslims, a top security operative has told SaharaReporters.


Gumi allegedly affirmed that Yakowa had been engaging in an anti-Muslim agenda, and that it was therefore necessary to avoid the emergence of non-Muslims as governor of Kaduna State in the future, a point that some senior citizens of Kaduna State raised in a detailed memo in which they expressed concern that Gumi’s weekly sermon was likely to cause serious ethno-religious crisis in Kaduna town.


According to the source, the eminent personalities from Kaduna are of the view in view of the volatile nature of Kaduna State, urgent intervention and consultation has become necessary.
“The prominent people from Kaduna State wrote the memo, and included it with audio and video tapes of Gumi’s preaching,” the source continued. Gumi in one of the tapes, which I will give you the Internet link, indeed said that Yakowa and Azazi died while meeting on anti-Muslim issues.


 He was also heard in the tape saying that, it was a plan with General Gowon using the burial in Bayelsa as a cover up for them to meet and that is why Yakowa followed Azazi alone without his ADC. Gumi in the audio tape also said that the Muslims of Kaduna State should never allow a situation that will bring about a non-Muslim to be governor, alluding to the fact that it was Allah that did this (crash) for the impending danger being planned against Muslims.”


He said the Kaduna personalities who wrote the petition want action to be taken against any clerics, Muslim or Christian, who preach incitement and hate.

Bauchi Threatens To Sack Teachers Without NCE

Isa Yuguda, Bauchi State Governor
Isa Yuguda, Bauchi State Governor

 The Bauchi State Government, yesterday, threatened to sack any primary school teacher without a genuine National Certificate in Education, NCE.
Speaking while inspecting projects at Government Girls Arabic College, Alkaleri, Governor Isa Yuguda said that government would not hesitate to sack non-NCE holders in the state.
Lamenting that the educational standard in the state had fallen drastically, he said that government was left with no other choice than to take drastic measures to sanitize the sector.
“We are committed to the building and promoting of the standard of our educational institutions in the state so that our children can have a bright future. We want a government that will impact positively on the lives of its citizens by ensuring that the quality of education was up to standard.
“Those agitating over our decision and are thinking that we did wrong to them, should come out to defend their NCE qualifications that they claim they acquired from government approved institutions. The primary school teachers who are challenging the decision of the government over the screening exercise in the state should come forward with clear evidence and present their original NCE certificates to avoid being sacked.
“It has come to our notice that most of the NCE certificates presented by primary school teachers are not authentic and so many of the teachers secured their employment by the state government with fake certificates,” Yuguda said.

Trader Kidnaps His Ex- Employer’s Sister As Revenge

The suspects
Suspects
A trader named Chukwunonso  Chike and five others have been arrested by policemen from the Special Anti Robbery Squad in Ikeja, Lagos for allegedly kidnapping  a woman in Ogudu  area.

Chike was arrested in his home a few weeks after the crime was allegedly committed. The suspect had worked with a pharmaceutical company owned by one Ebuka for about nine years before he resigned in 2007. However, a problem soon arose he said in an interview with SATURDAY PEOPLE.

 “Before I resigned, I didn’t have any problem with Ebuka. I saw him as an elder brother because he was nice to me. It wasn’t until I informed him that I was getting married in 2011 that our relationship turned sour. Ebuka did all he could to discourage me from marrying my wife, but I didn’t listen to him because he could not give me any good reason.

“Shortly after I got married, my wife began to have problems with Ebuka at work. He accused her of fraud and other offences. This is a woman who was the best marketer with the company at the time.
“My wife suffered two miscarriages because of the stress at work. Eventually she was unceremoniously sacked. She did not receive any formal letter to that effect. It was at this time, I conferred with some of my friends and decided to kidnap Ebuka’s sister in retaliation for all he put my wife through,” Chike said.

Chike had discussions with three friends known as Richard, Obinna and Ifeanyi, who were fellow traders at Idumota Market in Lagos. Then, the four men decided that they needed arms to ensure the success of their operation.

“It was Richard who told me that he knew people who could get guns for us. He then invited three more persons – Chimebere Utobo, Chidiebere Nwoye and Afeez – who assured us that they could procure a gun for the kidnap. Already I knew where Ebuka’s sister lived and the type of car she was using.

“So a few days to the incident, I took some members of the gang there and showed them the house. I told them where to keep Ebuka’s sister in Ikorodu.

“The night before the kidnap, I took all the members of my gang to a hotel in Ketu and kept them there. When it was morning, they all moved to Ogudu. I didn’t go along with them because I did not want the incident traced back to me,” Chike recalled.

At about 8 am on the day of the incident, just as their victim drove out of her home, Ebuka’s sister was accosted by Utobo, Nwoye and Afeez who moved close to her car and showed her a gun.
Frightened, the victim allowed the three men to enter the car with her. The group picked up Richard and Obinna, who had been waiting somewhere, on their way out of Ogudu and drove their victim to Ikorodu.

Later, Ebuka was contacted. The kidnappers demanded a ransom of N11m in exchange for his sister’s freedom. After two days, the money was ready.

At about 10 pm on November 21,  2012, Ebuka dropped the ransom money at a spot at Ojodu/Berger on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, as directed by the kidnappers. Thirty minutes later, his sister was dropped off at Mile 12. Already, her kidnappers had stolen her cell phones and other items in her possession.

Utobo denied using a locally made double barreled gun to intimidate the victim. “What I really had in my hand was a metal pipe but she didn’t know. I hid the rest of the pipe with my cloth because I knew there was no way she would cooperate with me if she knew we were not armed. I don’t own a gun; have never had one,” he said.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Umar Manko, confirmed the arrests. He said, “Ebuka made a report at the State Investigation Bureau Ikeja. They began to track the gang through the victim’s cell phone, which, unknown to Chike, was being used by Utobo.

“Chike’s number was obtained from the phone and he was subsequently arrested. The case was thereafter transferred to SARS where he confessed to the crime and was instrumental to the arrest of five of his colleagues. The seventh person, Afeez, is on the run and efforts are being made to apprehend him.”
                      

Police Kill Welder Over Vehicle Papers

Shola Adeghegha
Late Shola Adeghegha

To the family and friends of Shola Adeghegha, the news of his gruesome killing seems like a bad dream. 
Many days after receiving the body of the deceased, they still treat the circumstances surrounding his death like a fairy tale.

As late Adeghegha’s relatives prepared his corpse for burial early in the week, his death stirred up controversy and roused them to anger.

 Adeghegha, 35, was said to have been shot by policemen attached to Mokola 
Police Station in Ibadan on January 8, 2013 while trying to escape arrest.  But the family and associates of the deceased allege that he was shot and killed in suspicious circumstances. 

Sunkanmi Owoeye and the deceased’s elder brother, Yemi Adeghegha, told CRIME DIGEST that a telephone call was received from the police at about 5 am on the said day, in which the caller asked members of the family to report at the Mokola police station.

 Owoeye said the initial impression given was that someone should come to bail late Adeghegha.

“Later we learnt that he was dead. When we saw his corpse we discovered that he was shot and there were bullet wounds on his body and head. We learnt that he managed to get to the Group Medical Hospital in the Mokola area of Ibadan before he died,” he said.

Owoeye said a policeman at the station informed the family of the deceased about his death.  He expressed shock about the circumstance surrounding the tragedy, adding that the late Adeghegha was a gentle and easy-going man who abhorred violence.

He said, “We grew up together in Akure, Ondo State. Although he is not my blood brother, I have known the deceased for over 21 years. He was a very gentle and polite person loved by all. He was very hard working. We were into metal fabrication and we used to work together in Akure before he moved to Ibadan. We were like brothers and we grew up together.

“I was in Akure on Tuesday when I got a call from one of our friends, popularly called Engineer Marine, announcing his death to me. It came as a shock to me. When the circumstances of his death was narrated, I knew that something was fishy. At the end of the day all we got from the police was that he was stopped and taken to the station.

He was said to have even given the policeman that arrested him a ride to the police station before tragedy struck.”
Yemi noted that the Adeghegha’s death was shrouded in mystery. 
However, the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Administration, Mr. Clement Adoda, stated that the deceased was shot during an attempt to flee.

 “Investigation shows that he was stopped around 4:30am on Tuesday. He was driving a Mazda car (number and colour not given) and asked to present his vehicle particulars,” Adoda said.

He said Adeghegha was stopped near the Tennis Club and taken to Mokola police station when he failed to produce his vehicle particulars.
Adoda alleged that on arrival at the police station, the deceased and his escort met the gate locked. While the policemen tried to open it, Adeghegha allegedly started the engine of his car and tried to beat a retreat. But the policemen shot at the vehicle and he ran away.

“Initially it was assumed that the man escaped, but we later learnt that he came to Group Medical Hospital at Mokola. A security man at the hospital came to inform our men that there was a man with a bullet wound at the hospital. We learnt that having succeeded in escaping with the car, he had parked it somewhere and came for treatment at the hospital,” Adoda said.

While the relatives of the deceased insisted that he was coming from his residence in the Oluyole area, it was alleged that he was on his way from the tennis club.

But Yemi described the latter as untrue.
Yemi said his late brother, who was preparing for his wedding before the incident, had already quit drinking and clubbing. “To claim that my brother was drunk at the time of his arrest is spurious and unfounded. He had quit the habit without anybody forcing him to do so. This, properly, was because he was preparing to set up a family as a responsible man,” he said.

Adeghaegha’s death angered many of his relatives and associates whom SATURDAY PEOPLE learnt had planned to embark on a rally and candle-lit procession in his honour. But they were discouraged from doing so for fear that the programme might be hijacked by hoodlums and turn violent.

Yemi said, “ We want justice to take its course. Many people have been unlawfully murdered in cold blood. There has to be an end to this.
“Talents are being wasted and it is barbaric that people should be killed in this manner. It is even sad to note that those who are expected to protect us and ensure adequate security are the ones killing our people.” 

While the family has asked the police to produce the man that fired the shot that killed their son, the police say the killing was not intentional and that no shot would have been fired if he had not attempted to escape.

Jonathan Dares Not Come To My Church – Pastor Tunde Bakare

Pastor Tunde Bakare, Senior Pastor of the Latter Rain Assembly and former running mate of Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari in the last presidential election, speaks with KUNLE ADEYEMI and ADEOLA BALOGUNon some burning national issues

One year after the fuel subsidy protests, when you look back, would you say the protests achieved their goals?
When there are clear goals and objectives for any movement or protest, then you have the opportunity of judging whether those goals are attained or accomplished. We didn’t just rush out; if you recall, the increase in petrol pump price took place on January 1, 2012. Like a sadist, the President gave us a cause to be sorrowful on the first day of the year; even those who didn’t even have vehicles of their own and had to pay through their noses to move from one place to the other. The Save Nigeria Group sat down to analyse the situation and joined the protest in Ojota with its allies. There were pockets of protests here and there; there was a general strike by the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress; then we sat down and set the objectives clearly: that the increase in pump price was not our problem but corruption. We said the time had come for us to educate and enlighten our citizens and unblock their minds as to the root cause of the continuous increase in petrol pump price all the time and the affliction and oppression inflicted on the people of this country. That’s why we came out with the watchword, “Kill Corruption and not Nigerians.” And I leave it to you as journalists to see whether or not we accomplished our objectives because immediately we began to hammer that, probe after probe, live on television came out. There is no Nigerian anywhere in this country and in the Diaspora that does not know that filthiness is in our garments. Corruption is the bane and we have unmasked the masquerade.

It was alleged that you led the protest because your party lost the election to the President’s party.
You cannot tell clueless people not to reason wrongly. Did all the people who participated in that protest run for an election? All the musicians that came there, all the artistes that came there without taking a penny from us, did they run for any election? And even if you are going to judge me

Shocking Earnings Of Yoruba Movie Stars


                        Yoruba movie stars
Quite a number of perks come with being a movie star in this part of the world. They include designer clothes, luxury cars and posh apartments. Apart from their penchant for such status symbols, today’s Nollywood actors and actresses are also seen as role models, especially to the young and impressionable who dream of becoming stars some day.

But, judging by the results of a recent investigation conducted by Saturday Beats, it appears all that glitters is not gold, after all.

Contrary to popular opinion, the life of the average Yoruba movie star is that of constant ‘suffering and smiling’.

In spite of the fabulous profiles and immense goodwill enjoyed by some of these celebrated screen gods and goddesses, the contents of their bank accounts are really nothing to be cheerful about.

Even the ‘alarming’ increase in the volume of home video films produced in Yoruba language ought to be sufficient to improve the bank balances of such celebrities. To make matters worse, many of them suffer from a financial disease known as ‘Withdrawal Symptom.’ In fact, it is no longer news that a good number are regular visitors to ATMs.

“As soon as money is paid into their bank accounts, you will see them rushing to the nearest ATM to withdraw almost all the cash,” an amused banker told Saturday Beats recently.

Certainly it is difficult to believe that no reasonably successful Yoruba actor or actress has ever been paid up to N500, 000 for a lead role in any movie. Half a million seems a fantastic sum by all indications. Instead, the maximum fee payable to the best actor or actress has remained between N150k and N250k. 

Even many of the ‘veterans’ receive as low as N10k to appear in a film feature.
While those that are constantly in demand or have won awards in the industry, such as the likes of Funke Akindele and Odunlade Adekola, earn a maximum of N250k per feature film, the rest are left with peanuts. Interestingly, an exception to this ‘golden rule’ is Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde. Saturday Beats investigation shows that she earns between N250k and N400k.

Another ‘big earning’ actor is Adebayo Salami, aka Oga Bello. It is said that he hardly receives part payment from any producer. Usually on location, he would demand his fee of not more that N150,000 before going into action.
The same is said about Omotola who does not budge until she or her manager has confirmed that a certain amount of money has been deposited in her bank account.

However, the so-called big budget film productions have never exceeded the N3m mark despite the fact that a lot of money goes into paying the crew and cast. Money is also spent on production equipment, lights, costumes, makeups, transport, food, accommodation, generating plant sets, and other logistics/incidental expenses. That is also why most of the cast and crew are grateful when the filmmaker or marketer, who bankrolls the production, is able to hand them paltry sums of money.

“You can count on your fingers the number of individuals involved in the production who respectively got paid less than N50,000,” a production hand says.
Also included in the budget are the editing suite staff, copies of empty VCDs to be dubbed, posters and film jackets to be printed, marketing and distribution.

Now we know why most of the highly paid or underpaid actors/ actresses are writing their own movie scripts and directing or producing their own movie projects, as well as saturating the market with volumes of half-baked home videos every week.

Bukky Wright was the highest paid actress in the Yoruba language genre before Funke Akindele broke her N150,000 per featured film record with Jenifa.
Omilade Babatunde, aka Baba Suwe, used to be the highest paid aactor until the much younger Odunlade Adekola, aka Cause Trouble, began to earn up to N250k per feature film. The other notable figures? Well, they are trying hard to catch up with Omotola, Funke and Odunlade.

Omotola, Adebayo Salami, Funke Akindele, Bukky Wright and Odunlade Adekola were unavailable for comment.

But prolific film producer, Kunle Afolayan, said, “I really don’t know how much they earn now because I’ve since moved on to other major things.”
Top actress, Lizzy Anjorin, found it hard to answer the question.
“Ha! That’s a tough question that I don’t have a ready answer for. Fees vary from one filmmaker to another. As for me, I bill per script and I don’t appear in just about any film.”
Saturday Beats sought the view of scriptwriter/actor/filmmaker, Femi Davies.

He responded, “You can’t really get any top actor/actress that will proudly and honestly tell you this is how much he or she earns per film. But for my years in the industry, I don’t know anyone that collects half a million naira per film he or she featured in that’s not a film produced by him or her. Things can only get better.”

The story is not different in the Igbo or the Hausa language-speaking movie sector. We gathered that the actors/actresses who in real life drive fancy cars, live in their own houses, dress in the latest designer clothes, are the privileged ones who have been able to sustain and maintain their celebrity/star status by engaging in private business outside movies like car dealership, party/event planning, boutiques, supermarkets, hair dressing saloons, voice-over on radio/TV adverts, comperes at private and public functions, corporate brand endorsements.

Actress Cossy Orjiakor Replies A Blogger Who Wrote To Her and Tont Dike About Their Lifestyles.

          Cossy Orjiakor and Tonto Dikeh


Controversial Nollywood actress cum singer Cossy Orjiakor has responded to an open letter directed to her and Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh about their lifestyles.
The letter was written a day after Cossy Orjiakor shared unclad pictures of herself on the social media.
Here is the letter:
An Open Letter To Cossy Orjiakor and Tonto Dikeh
This letter was written by a blogger known as Ngozi Kanwiro (www.ngozikanwiro.blogspot.com) to Cossy and Tonto Dikeh.
The unscrupulous lifestyles of Igbo NOLLYWOOD Actresses, Cossy Orjiakor and Tonto Dikeh are just becoming too unbearable.
This duo has ignorantly and intentionally refused to stop their no-longer interesting/entertaining lifestyles that are now tarnishing the image of the Igbo female group as a whole.
It is so disheartening how Cossy has continued to tarnish the image of our Igbo sisters through her dirty lifestyles that now give all Nigerians the impression that Igbo ladies are all prostitutes using their bodies to climb to the ladder of fame in all works of life, whereas in reality, it is not true, rather it is being practiced by few unscrupulous Igbo girls who have nothing else to offer to the Nigerian society aside exposing their God-given feminine physique in sexual-appealing manner to gain popularity, and by giving out their supposed holy-bodies to men (married and single) so long as he can pay the price.
Please Cossy and Tonto, Nigerians and most importantly, Ndigbo are no longer finding your ugly, dirty lifestyles funny, please you girls should turn a new leaf this new year and embrace God in your lives for your own good. You two maybe thinking that you are on top of the game, but you are only causing yourselves more harm than good, and if you ladies refuse to change for better, you will surely reap a negative fruit in future to come.
Finally, I am using this medium with other mediums to follow, to call on the Ohanaeze Ndigbo society to please write personally to Cossy Orjiakor and Tonto Dikeh to change their lifestyles as soon as possible, and if they fail or pay deaf ear, then the Ohanaeze Ndigbo should write to NOLLYWOOD, PMAN, Nigeria Censorship Agency, and every other entertainment industry in Nigeria through the major national dailies in Nigeria, to ban them from participating in Nigerian entertainment industries of any kind.
This is so sad because they are no longer entertaining Nigerians but rather teaching the upcoming Nigeria youths bad moral conducts.
Just see the unimaginable picture an African woman of Igbo origin posted publicly online in the name of entertaining her so-called fans. Yes, such rubbish can be done in the west, this is Africa, Nigeria and this also goes beyond to tarnishing the name of Igbo tribe. Spread this message as fast as you can. Thanks.

The rising EME recording artiste exhibits star qualities and is far from the fresh-faced shy girl from a couple of years ago. Oh, and she was recently verified by Twitter, apparently the latest status symbol in the Nigerian celeb sphere.
She told ToolzO.net that in five years she hopes to be – “one of the most successful and most sought after female musicians in Africa” and her career path if she decided not to venture into the music industry – “A journalist”.

Woman Returns Home At 2am, Finds Hubby (32) Raping 11 Year Old Daughter


                       
A 32-YEAR-OLD man from Gwanda District has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter.
The man, who cannot be named to protect the victim, yesterday pleaded guilty to the charge before Gwanda regional magistrate Mr Joseph Mabeza. On 14 January this year at about 9pm, the man arrived home drunk and found his wife already asleep with the complainant with whom they shared the bedroom.
He had a domestic dispute with his wife and threatened to assault her, which resulted in his wife leaving the house to seek refuge from nearby relatives. He also left the house and went to his aunt’s place where he rested for a while. When he returned home at about midnight looking for his wife, he found that she had not returned and failed to locate her.
He then started harassing the complainant and her younger sister, who were sleeping in the bedroom asking them about the whereabouts of their mother. He then took advantage of the absence of his wife and ordered the stepdaughter to sleep on his bed, ordered her to undress and lie on the bed. She complied and he sexually abused her before threatening to axe her if she ever revealed what had happened to anyone.
After raping his stepdaughter, he slept in the same blankets with her. The matter came to light when his wife returned home at around 2am the following day and found him sleeping in the same blanket with his stepdaughter. On being questioned, the girl revealed that the stepfather had sexually abused her and the matter was reported to the police leading to the man’s arrest.
Mr Johannes Tlou prosecuted.

PSquare Twins Separates While On Vacation

                       


Born by the same parents, on the same day within just eight minutes of each other, and growing up doing almost everything together, the duo of Peter and Paul have in January, 2013, have parted ways to two different vacation spots.
For many, December is that holiday month they look forward to every year. This is not the same for A-list artistes who do back-to-back shows, helping you enjoy your holiday by performing at concerts, end of year parties and various kinds of events. P Square definitely had one of their busiest seasons last year and for these hard working Jacks, it’s time to play; and they are choosing different vacation spots in the United States.
Last week, Paul was spotted in Atlanta, while Peter told us he’s hanging out with in San Francisco with kids Cameron and Lola. The multi-award winning duo and triple Headies winners at the 2012 edition say they’re “chopping their money”

                     KESHI
The Federal Government in Abuja on Thursday released N490 million to the Super Eagles to participate in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
The money, which was released to the Nigeria Football Association (NFA), was part of the funds approved for the team to participate in the competition.
Julius Ogunro, the Special Assistant (Media) to Sports Minister Bolaji Abdullahi, said that the second and final part of the funds would be released in due course.
“Information has come from the Office of the Accountant-General that the money has been released, while the NFA too has confirmed receipt of the money in their account,’’ he said.
Ogunro said the Sports Minister, who is also the Chairman of the National Sports Commission (NSC), worked tirelessly to ensure the funds were released on time to the team’s handlers.
“The minister and all concerned had worked tirelessly to make sure the money got to the team and their handlers on time for their successful campaign at the Nations Cup.
“We hope that with this first instalment, the pursuit of glory for Nigeria will commence so as to return Nigeria to its place of pride in African football,’’ he said.
Ogunro, however, said the NSC would continue to work tirelessly to ensure the remaining part of the money was released in a matter of days.
“We are already working on that and we hope that in the next few days the balance of N300 million will equally be released to the NFA,’’ he said.
NFA’s Secretary-General, Musa Amadu, confirmed the receipt of the money to NAN.

President Jonathan Pays Surprise Visit To Police College In Lagos

President Goodluck Jonathan, this afternoon paid a surprise visit to the Police College in Ikeja, Lagos.
According to sources, even his top aides were completely unaware that the president would stop over at the College, which has been the centre of intense media scrutiny over the past days, due to the terrible state of facilities.

Eyewitnesses claim the authorities were also caught unawares, as the college had been rented out to host a private wedding ceremony – an illegal act in itself. When the president could not get a coherent explanation for these actions, he summoned the top brass of the College and went on an inspection tour of the school – including the students’ hostels where there are no beds and toilets.
Dr. Reuben Abati confirmed that President Jonathan was heading to Cote D’Voire for ECOWAS meeting, after the shock visit. “The surprise visit is over. Mr. President walked the length and breadth of the college, inspected every facility. Heading for Cote D’Ivoire now,” he tweeted.

Theo Walcott Signs Three-and-half-Year New Arsenal Deal


                  Walcott signs
Theo Walcott has finally committed his future to Arsenal, after he put pen to paper on a new three-and-a-half-year contract with Arsenal, worth £100,000 a week.
“Arsenal Football Club is delighted to announce that Theo Walcott has signed a new long-term contract,” a club statement on the official site read. “The 23-year-old forward has already made 244 first team appearances since joining Arsenal from Southampton in January 2006, during which time he has scored 56 goals.
“Walcott has also established himself as a regular England international during his time with Arsenal. Having signed for the Club at the age of 16 from Southampton, Theo soon won a call-up to England’s 2006 World Cup squad. Later that year, he became the country’s youngest-ever full international at 17 years and 75 days when he faced Hungary. Walcott currently has 30 international caps.
“The lightning-fast forward is enjoying another good season and is currently Arsenal’s leading goalscorer with 14 goals in all competitions. This tally includes two hat tricks – at Reading in the 7-5 Capital One Cup victory and also against Newcastle United in the 7-3 Premier League victory at Emirates Stadium.”
Talks had stalled since last August, after the forward rejected a five-year offer worth £75,000 a week. Arsene Wenger reacted by putting the England international on the bench, but eventually yielded to the 23-year-old’s demands, after his sparkling form – Walcott is Arsenal’s top scorer with 14 goals.
“We are all delighted that Theo has signed a new contract. He joined us as a 16-year-old and since then has developed very well to become an extremely important player for both Arsenal Football Club and England,” Wenger said.
“Theo is a strong player and also a great person, and the combination of his ability and pace always make him such a valuable asset either from the flanks or down the middle. Theo’s contract extension now gives us a strong nucleus of ambitious young players who have committed to the Club and want to be successful with us as a group.”
Walcott himself, who would have been free to leave in the summer, was delighted to pen the much improved deal.
“I am very happy to have signed a new contract here at Arsenal. Thanks to everyone for their continued support, especially the manager, everyone at the club and most importantly the fans. I have made it clear from the start that I wanted to stay at Arsenal so I am pleased we have agreed a deal that everyone is happy with. What’s important now is for the team to realise its potential and win trophies,” he said.
