fraud investigation

Lagos State: Vedic Lifecare hospital, a hospital based at Olabanji Olajide Street, Lekki Phase 1 has allegedly lost one of its core values of ethical practices by asking their patients to travel to India to complete their treatments, only for patients to get extorted and maltreated after they get to India. The recent allegations was made by one Tobi Marshal

Vedic Lifecare is aligned with Manipal Hospital, based in Bangalore, Indiaas shown on the hospital website. According to a Nigerians who had been to the hospital and seems to have experienced the services at one time or the other, the common denominator among the former patients or families of patients of the Vedic Lifecare hospital are two things, Recommendation of Manipal Hospital in India, and allegedly neglecting and their patients while in India.

While different people have pointed out this issue, a young man, Tobi Marshal (@tobi_marshal_) took to Twitter to warn other Nigerians as he mourn the death of his mother, who had gone from healing to multiple complications, and negligence by the other management.

While Tobi story is very sad and touching, It should be an eye opener for Nigerians, and also maybe the authority would look into the different medical tourism that orignates from Vedic Lifecare, and look into the work ethics of Vedic Lifecare, so as to rule out medical fraud and life endagerment.

A lot of users on the social media pages of Vedic Lifecare also alleges the same thing;



We have written an email to Vedic Lifecare in the case they would like to shed some light on the recent allegations by Mr Tobi Marshal. If it turns out Vedic Lifecare is extorting Nigerians and sending them on a not needed medical tourism, the EFCC and the relevant Nigeria security department should contact thorough investigations, and for an international hospital operating on the shore of Nigeria, most services should be done on home soil too, reducing expenses for a country like Nigeria with high poverty rate.


Israel: A secret inquiry into the corruption charges of Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netayanhu will now be a full-blown investigation by the police. The police authorities received a new document on Monday for the investigation that had been done secretly for nine months.


The police have now turned to the Attorney for permission that will allow them to open the full investigation into the Prime minister alleged bribery and aggravated fraud.

The secret investigation started nine months ago after a green light by the Police Chief Roni Alsheich, and the investigation was carried on by a special police unit Lahav 433, who had also demanded full secrecy and no leak to the media.

Responding to the alleagations, the prime minister spokesperson said that;

it’s all nonsense, Since Netanyahu’s victory in the last elections and even before, hostile elements have used heroic efforts to attempt to bring about [Netanyahu’s] downfall, with false accusations against him and his family. This [latest attempt] is absolutely false. There was nothing and there will be nothing.

Earlier this month, there was a call for the prime minister to be investigated after his role in the defence ministry deal to purchase submarines from the a German company partly owned by the Iranian government.

The issue created a debate among the country as citizens debate the prime minister might be swayed in the decision by business ties his personal counsel David Shimron had with the submarines’ builder, ThyssenKrupp. The purchase was opposed by parts of the defence establishment, including former defence minister Moshe Ya’alon.

One of Christopher victims is James Morgan-Watt, 28, from Wellington, who said he was waiting for about $5,500 of silver he had ordered from the Kiwi Bullion in late April. Christopher had told Watts the goods are at the border to be cleared by customs, but Morgan said;

He just disappeared off the face of the earth. I've written it [the money] off. It just comes down to a bad investment.

43-year-old, Jeremy Stevenson, from Christchurch, has thought he was making a good investment for his parents when he order $10,000 worth of silver from Christopher business, but the good never arrived.

Jermey said; [Heaps] wreaked havoc and we're all sitting here wearing the cost. It's not fair. It cuts to the bone.

The former governor of Imo State, Ikedi Ohakim was granted bail by a Federal High Court in Abuja for a sum of N270m. Ohakim was arrested last month by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for the N270m that was allegedly perpetrated in 2008, while he was the governor of the state.


Justice Ademola Adeniyi, while ruling on the bail application filed by Ikedi Ohakim, also ordered the prosecuting agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, to submit the accused person passport and other travel douments to the deputy chief registrar of the court.

As reported by Punch, the court had on Wednesday ordered the ex-governor to remain in he custody of the EFCC, pending his application bail the next day, Thursday.

On the bail application hearing on Thursday, the defence counsel, Chief Chris Uche (SAN), urged the court to grant the bail request of his client, and told the court that his client's passport and travel documents have been seized by the EFCC, and he has also remained faithful to his bail application granted to him by the anti-graft agency.

But the prosecuor, Festus Keyamo, opposed the bail for Ohakim. He said the court should not grant the bail, but instead grant an accelerated hearing for the accused.

The judge during his hearing, said that the accused person had placed sufficient materials before the court and he warrants granting him bail.

The former governor was arraigned before the court on three count charges of fraud, which includes a cash payment of $2.29m(N270m) for a property in Asokoro in Abuja. The governor who was the governor of Imo state between May 2001 and May 2007 failed to declare the property when he was arrested by the EFCC in November 2008. He had connived with Tweenex Consociates H.D. Ltd to hide the ownership of the house and portray him as a tenant of the property.

The offence committed in 2008 was in violation of section 15(1)(d) and section 14(1)(b) of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, 2004, respectively.
