Meet Nigerian Man Who Got Jailed For Four And Half Years In London For Reckless Driving

Published

A 24-year-old Nigerian, Princely Imara, has been jailed for 4 and half years, after filming a ‘selfie’ at 120mph while chasing a police car. He was also banned from driving for 4 years.

Princely started following the vehicle at high speed after he spotted it heading toward an emergency incident, with its sirens blaring, on the A20 in Ashford, Kent.

He filmed the entire incident on camera, but the footage was only discovered after he was involved in another chase – this time, along the M2 at 130mph – a month later, which resulted in a crash.

In the later incident, two officers noticed Imara drive past them at high speed. He was driving ‘erratically’, even swerving onto the hard shoulder, Canterbury Crown Court heard.
Imara then re-joined the carriageway on the M2 near Sittingbourne, Kent, behind the officers’ vehicle and overtook them. He was pulled over and spoken to by the cops, the court heard.
Simon Taylor, prosecuting, told the court: ‘The officers got out and spoke to Imara who was aggressive and obstructive.
‘His demeanour raised concerns after he stated he had recently been detained under the Mental Health Act – and he said this while still filming the officers on his mobile phone.’
While the officers carried out checks, Imara sped off, reaching a top speed of 130mph. He was finally caught after he crashed into a roadside barrier, causing £2,600 worth of damage.
The footage of the earlier incident, where the convicted drug dealer and burglar had launched into a rant about the police, was discovered after his mobile phone was seized and examined. Mara has been jailed for four and a half years on a variety of charges.
He had admitted seven drug offenses, burglary, handling stolen goods, three charges of driving dangerously, five charges of resisting a police officer and driving without a license and insurance.
Sentencing Imara, Judge Adele Williams told him: ‘This was appalling driving in which you showed no regard for the safety of others – including police officers who were doing no more than their duty.’ The defendant, of Shepway, Kent, was also banned from driving for four years.

He will have to take a re-test before he is allowed to get back behind the wheel of a car.

Mohbad’s wife claims Joseph Aloba is her son’s greatest enemy

Omowunmi, the wife of the late singer Mohbad, has accused Joseph Aloba, her father-in-law, of being an “enemy”.

Mohbad died on September 12, 2023, and was buried the following day. On September 21, his body was exhumed by police for an autopsy.

Eight months later, the autopsy failed to determine the cause of death as the singer’s body had decomposed when tests were conducted.

In a post on her Instastory on Wednesday, Wunmi alleged the “greatest enemy” of Liam, her son with Mohbad, is the singer’s father.

“Liam’s greatest enemy is his grandfather. Life is funny,” she wrote in the now-deleted post.

David Hinds accuses Burna Boy of disrespecting Reggae band at German festival

Published

By

David ‘Electric’ Hinds, the lead singer and guitarist of Steel Pulse, has called out Burna Boy for allegedly disrespecting the Grammy award-winning Reggae band, at a German festival.

The 2024 Summer Jam Festival was held in Germany from July 5 to 7.

The event headliners were Burna Boy and Jamaican artistes such as Skillibeng, Konshens, Busy Signal, Lila Ike, Beenie Man, and Ky-Mani Marley.

In a comment beneath an Instagram post about the festival, Hinds claimed Burna Boy arrived at the event with a large entourage and demanded additional dressing rooms to accommodate his team.

He accused the Afrofusion singer of attempting to force him and fellow Steel Pulse members out of their dressing room.

Hinds argued that Burna Boy and his crew’s behaviour cannot be a part of Reggae’s culture, which promotes peace, love, and unity.

The reggae artiste also criticised the festival organisers for allowing his band to be “bullied” by Burna Boy’s security team.

“Burna Boy and security crew fully disrespected us at Steel Pulse, trying to kick us out of our dressing room so he could have 4 dressing rooms for his massive entourage,” he wrote.

“Selwyn Brown, original member of Steel Pulse, was livid and our team stood our ground and told them to beat it and you can’t do that to people, especially to a band that has paved the way for Reggae music.

“Summer Jam why do you have a full security team that think they can come in and bully people? Who the hell does Burna Boy think he is?

“And because of us refusing to leave, the security team proceeded to build a barricade of a blacked out chain linked fence that split the hallway between our dressing room and his dressing room making it feel like we were in prison or something.

“I hope that these legendary reggae festivals realize that this can’t be apart of the reggae culture. That’s Babylon business. We don’t treat people like that.

“Please recognise this because Steel Pulse was fully disrespected. Reggae promotes Peace, Love, Unity.. stand up for your rights, we must never give up the fight.”

As of the time of this report, neither Burna Boy nor the organisers of Summer Jam have responded to the allegations.
