Terry Waya Arrested in London

The Metropolitan Police of London arrested flamboyant businessman of Nigerian origin, Terry Waya. The businessman was arrested from his North London home this morning. He was arrested on charges of money laundering. You may recall that the London-based businessman played a big role in the bail process of fugitive Governor of Bayelsa State, DSP Alamieyeseigha. Terry Waya was reported to have deposited about five hundred thousand pounds (£500,000.00) to secure bail for the Bayelsa Governor who later escaped to Nigeria early this week

Terry Waya was granted bail and asked to report to the London Police sometime in June 2006. The Scotland Yard press department confirmed Waya’s arrest to Elendureports.com. We were also informed that they are still investigating these allegations.

Some controversy still surrounds the source of wealth of this flamboyant businessman. However, it is generally believed that he acted as a front for various military officers in the Abacha regime. He is described by people very close to him as a ‘chronic crony’ of the military.

Terry caused another controversy after posting bail for the Bayelsa Governor as he took full-page adverts in some Nigerian newspapers to denounce those he described as “enemies of light.” His excoriating adverts were seen as a direct attack on Pres. Olusegun Obasanjo and his Government. He is a known enemy of the Obasanjo Administration. The embattled Bayelsa Governor, through surrogates, disassociated himself from Terry’s attacks on the President and denied that the businessman helped secure his release.

In 2001, Terry Waya celebrated his 40th birthday in a posh London hotel. State Governors and some members of the Obasanjo Cabinet attended his birthday bash.

Several calls to the offices of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission did not yield any results as Chairman Nuhu Ribadu and their spokesman, Osita Nwajah, were said to be unavailable. However, we were told by a source that EFCC was aware of the Terry Waya situation and may come out with a statement later.

It is my sincere hope that this spate of arrests and accusations trigger an epiphany amongst Nigerians: that only by mass mobilization of the citizenry can the state of the nation improve. Only when hundreds of thousands of Nigerians are willing to forgo their comfort zones and risk their futures (or even lives) in the ensuing fight will noteworthy improvement occur. Either that or the eventual depletion of Petroleum resources (in about 20-30 years time): once the citizenry have no other choice to ensure their survival.

Well Done Sowore and Co
I was going to ask what was happening to Terry Waya, I was scared this chap had gotten away with all the evil he helped to perpetuate in Nigeria. There really is a God (not the one that brought Alamco back home O).
I said in one of the threads that this would be an intresting week maybe this will be our turning point and all the oppression, theft and other nefarious will end.
Terry Waya is a small fry in the whole saga

The arrest and subsequent release of terry waya is only a routine exercise carried out by the London Metropolitan police in the course of their inquiries into alams' escape. I see it as a smokescreen, Both Nigeria and the British authorities should stop chasing shadows, they know who they want, and where they are, Nigerians should not be deceived into praising such 'heroics' that amount to nothing. Why are they playing around with 'small fish' also, terry waya didn't put down any bail money for alams, he couldn't produce the £250,000 asked for, just like the shine-shine bobo that he is, he quickly turned the whole thing into a media and PR coup in Nigerian newspapers by alleging that alams was his friend, and that he won't let down a friend in need, he tried to play himself back into reckoning, but alams told his people even while he was at Brixton prison to distance themselves from him, and they did and quickly 'disowned' him. Nigerians should Forget about this hyped up arrest, it means nothing, they are only selling us a dummy. Let them go and arrest the big fish himself. Terry waya is not in any trouble, if he was they wouldn't have asked him to report back in June 2006. Also, if he had anything to hide, why put himself forward in the first place by promising to bring the bail money? it was after he dissapointed alams' camp that they desperately started calling up people in london to come forward and help, with promises of 'heaven and earth' afterwards, a close family friend was also contacted, but the guy 'picked race'.

Amid earlier reports, chieftain of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Terry Waya, says he was never arrested by the London Metropolitan Police.
Waya's clearification came on the heel of earlier reports that operatives of British Metropolitan Police picked him up on allegation of money laundering.

Speaking with Daily Sun from London Thursday night, Waya said the rumour about his purported arrest was the handiwork of agents of the Federal Government, who, he said, do not like the role he played to get Gov. Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, Bayelsa State governor, bailed when he was being detained by British police. He said that government wanted to tarnish his image because of Alamieyeseigha's return to Nigeria Monday.

Earlier report received said Waya was arrested and taken to court before being granted bail. It was gathered that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had sent a dossier on Waya to the British police alleging numerous financial malpractices and urged the British police to investigate them.
The Federal Government, it was learnt, had zeroed in on Waya following his much publicized altercation with it in the aftermath of Alamieyeseigha's travails. Waya had likened the government to the biblical anti-Christ in a paid newspaper advertisement.
