Justice C.M.A Olatoregun of the Federal High Court, Lagos on Friday, March 4, 2016, convicted Ngqula Nosisi Pam, a South African for money laundering and bulk cash smuggling. The convict was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on February 1, 2016 after her arrest at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport.

The convict had earlier pleaded 'not guilty' but changed her plea to 'guilty' and was consequently convicted by the court.

The judge also ordered the EFCC to remit the money to the Federal Government Account within 29 days and filed notice of remittance at the court. The Judge admonished the convict to shun illegality in the future.

The one count charge reads: “that you Ngqula Nosisi Pam on or about the 24th of March, 2015 at Murtala Muhammed International Airport within the jurisdiction of the Federal High Court had in possession cash in the sum of Three Hundred and Seventy Four Thousand, Three Hundred and Fifty Five United States of America Dollars ($374,355.00) which you transported from the Republic of South Africa to Lagos; and failed to declare the sum of Three Hundred and Fifty Five United States of America Dollars ($374,355.00) to the officers and men of the Nigeria Customs Service as required under the provisions of section 2(3) of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, 2011 (as amended by Act No. 1 of 2012 and thereby committed an offence punishable under section 2(5) of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, 2011 (as amended by Act No. 1 of 2012”.

Cristiano Ronaldo is my rival who I respect, nothing more than that - Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi has admitted there's mutual respect between himself and Cristiano Ronaldo. As the battle for supremacy among the planet's two best footballers continues, the Argentine says Ronaldo isn't his friend. Ronaldo and Messi have each shared the Ballon D'or Award since 2007 and both superstar footballers play for Spain's two most powerful clubs Real Madrid and Barcelona, leading to suggestions of intense rivalry between the pair.

But speaking to Argentine newspaper El Grafico, Messi said it's only mutual respect that exists between them not hate or love.
"We are professionals that defend our teams, and rivals in this game, nothing more than that. Sometimes it happens that we win or that we lose. There has always been respect and nothing more."
However, the Barcelona star made it clear that his ambitions rest on more silverware, not individual prizes.
"I prefer to win something with the national team," he said. "I am not interested in records. They are there, but that does not make you win titles."
