*Atlanta-based activist Sir Maejor Page has been arrested for allegedly spending more than $200,000 in donations earmarked for the Black Lives Matter movement.

According to multiple news stories, Page, 32, used some of the money to purchase an $112,000 home and vacant lot in Toledo, Ohio, where he was recently arrested.

In addition, news outlets have reported that he also purchased tailored suits and several guns.

Page, who is also known as Tyree Conyers-Page, is said to have had a bank account set up for Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta, but he was the sole signatory.  He also used numerous social media platforms and GoFundMe Pages under the banner of Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta, saying it was a non-profit, the FBI said in a news release.

Page has denied that any of the money donated has been used for personal reasons.  He claims that all donations went to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Media accounts say that at the time Page was accepting donations under the guise of BLM, he said the money would be used to fight for George Floyd.  Yet, records show that Page used a debit card linked to the bank account to buy expensive tailored suits, furniture, a home security system, along with entertaining and dining costs for June, July, and August.

Page has been charged with wire fraud and two counts of money laundering.  According to the FBI, there are numerous videos and live stream videos posted to Page’s personal social media pages, showing himself in what seems to be newly purchased clothing, hotel rooms, and office space in Atlanta.

“Several audio statements are made by Page in the videos boasting about the money he has, his tailored suits, his nice cufflink and $150 ties,” the FBI added.

Overall officials estimate that he used more than $200,000 in donations on items for himself, “with no identifiable purchases or expenditures for social or racial justice causes.”  The investigation is ongoing.

Nigeria anti-police protests

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump released the following statement in response to Nigerian security forces opening fire on peaceful protestors last night in Lagos, Nigeria:

“It is unacceptable for a government to brutalize and murder its own people. We are calling for transparency and accountability from the Lagos government on the cruel and unnecessary violence used against these peaceful protestors.

“The ability for citizens to demonstrate safely when they see injustice within their government should be a sacred right across the globe. When our brothers and sisters abroad cannot speak out without fearing for their lives, it is clear we are dealing with an international human rights violation that demands we raise our voices.”
