|Crime / Magician Mistakenly Kills Himself In Front Of Spectators-the PUNCH by gulfer: 8:43am On Apr 27|
A psychic trying to demostrate that nothing could harm him ended up committing suicide in the presence of his spectators.
Theprit Palee, 25, had been performing a Thai traditional dance in front of spectators in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand, Wednesday afternoon when the incident occurred.
Usually, Palee would press a long sword against his chest but instead of being impaled, the sword would break. The folk ritual is said to honour the spirits of ancestors and in previous shows he would impress onlookers by appearing superhuman when the blade broke as it was pressed against his chest, Daily Mail reported.
However, on the fateful day, instead of breaking, the sword went straight into his rib cage making him go fatally limp almost immediately.
Crowds gathered round the man as they attempted to revive him but he was later pronounced dead at hospital.
Resident Noom Udorn said Palee had provided readings for several years to local people.
“This is a tradition that happens every year. The sword normally breaks but this time it went inside him.
‘The medium has been respected for many years. People love him. He is one of people’s favourites,” Udorn said.
Deputy Police Inspector Chaiwat Phan said they arrived at the San Kamphaeng district of the province at 3pm and found the medium bleeding.
He said: “We were informed that a man armed with a knife had stabbed himself. We are coordinating with the hospital while an autopsy is performed. There were people at the scene helping Mr Palee but he died later in hospital. He had a stab wound to the chest.”

|Crime / I Have Raped Up To Seven Women – Kidnap, Fraud Suspect by gulfer: 6:43am On Apr 12|
For 11 years, Emmanuel Nwobilo AKA Ukunwayin, a native of Umuwankwo area of Abia State, allegedly operated criminal activities of kidnapping, scam and rape.
By his own admission, each time he was caught by the police, the case never got to court as he always found ways of getting himself off the hook.
But when he landed in the net of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Abia State Police Command recently, he was made to chronicle his crime activities on camera.
In a video posted online by an operative of the SARS in the state, Nwobilo, explained that since 2006 when he had been actively involved in crime, he had raped up to seven women.
He said, “I was taught by Emmanuel Sunji, my cousin. He taught me the kidnapping business and how to defraud people. I work together with ‘Foreigner’ who is also a member of my gang.”
The police said the young man he identified by the alias, Foreigner, is on the run. According to Nwobilo’s statement, while he raped some of their victims, Foreigner apparently dipped his fingers in their private parts.
Saturday PUNCH learnt that Nwobilo’s gang operate by using tricycle riders to lure their victims.
According to him, every day, he gave N1,500 to each rider to fuel their tricycles and they use this to kidnap their victims or in some cases, use them to transport victims they intend to defraud.
He said his gang made each scam victim swear an oath of secrecy about their encounter.
But some of the victims usually summoned the courage to report to the police.
He said, “I know that the police had been looking for me. I had been arrested many times in the past. But I usually settled the complainants.
“I have never been charged to court. I was once detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department in Umuahia on a case of a woman I defrauded of N50,000. I also raped the woman. But when I was arrested, I begged for the case to be settled out of court and compensated the woman with N100,000. The case was closed and I was not charged to court.”
Nwobilo’s recent arrest is a result of defrauding another victim of N800,000, which he has also confessed to.
Asked what he intended to do now that he had been recaptured by SARS on allegations of kidnapping, rape and advance fee fraud, Nwobilo explained that he was willing to pay back any of his victims who showed up.
Few months ago, Saturday PUNCH learnt that Nwobilo and his gang defrauded an unidentified woman of $10,000 (over N3m).
He was arrested alongside the individual said to be the leader of the gang. Nwobilo identified the man by the alias, ‘Double’
He said, “Double, who is our gang leader, got N1.7m out of the $10,000, while I got N840,000. Another member of our gang, Chidi, got N600,000.
“After we were arrested by the police, we were able to pay the woman back and we were cleared. The police did not charge us to court.”
Nwobilo said he intended to pay back the N800,000, he was accused of obtaining from his latest victim fraudulently.
“I can pay N400,000 now and the balance later. I don’t want to go to court, this is why I am pleading to be allowed to settle the case. If while I am in custody, any of the past victims come, I can settle them too,” he said.
The spokesperson for the Abia State Police Command was unreachable as of the time of filing this report.
