Kano Commissioner For Agriculture Resigns


kano-stateThe membership of Kano State Executive Council was depleted on Thursday following the resignation of the Commissioner for Agriculture, Dr Baraka Sani from the cabinet.

Sani, however, did not give reasons for resigning from her position.

It was learnt through a reliable source that Sani threw in the towel on Wednesday following disagreement with the state Governor, Engr. Rabi’u Kwankwaso over selection of some candidates for the forthcoming local government election.

“The commissioner was not happy because the governor had refused to consider one of her candidates for the election in the state”, the source said.

It would be recalled that the former Commissioner for Education, Alhaji Faruk Iya, resigned last November in protest against moves by Kwankwaso to join the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Shun Political Pressures, Mukhtar Charges New Court Of Appeal President


JUSTICE ZAINAB BULKACHUKWA

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Aloma Mukhtar on Thursday charged Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, new President of Court of Appeal, to shun political pressures while in office.

The CJN gave the charge during the swearing-in of Bulkachuwa as the substantive president of the appellate court at the Supreme Court in Abuja.

According to Mukhtar, judicial service is a noble calling, which is exemplified in the judge’s personality, hence, the need for Bulkachuwa to exercise the highest level of professionalism.

She stressed the need for the new president to discharge her responsibilities in line with the oath of office she had taken.

“In reality, the idea of citizens submitting their failings, vulnerabilities and frailties for determination before a human arbiter, underlines the need for the exercise of the highest standard of professionalism.

“I, therefore, enjoin you as a custodian of this sacred position, to shun all forms of political pressures and discharge your responsibilities in consonance with the oath of office you have just subscribed”, the chief justice said.

Mukhtar stated that Bulkachuwa’s appointment as the Appeal Court’s 6th President and first female since inception in 1976, came at a critical time when the judiciary was undergoing sweeping reforms.

The CJN also advised Bulkachuwa to reposition the court in order to restore public’s confidence in it.

“The office of the President of the Court of Appeal is very tasking and arduous, the task ahead is also enormous and demanding.

“You are charged to demonstrate purposeful leadership and ensure proper coordination of all the justices and activities of the court in order to foster greater efficiency in the dispensation of justice.

“The judiciary no doubt has come a long way and we cannot afford to fail in this crucial point in our nascent democracy”, Mukhtar said.

Bulkachuwa’s swearing-in ceremony was witnessed by justices of the Supreme and Appeal Courts as well as other dignitaries.

‘Madness Gave Me Money’ – Terry G Reveals



Popular singer Terry G has said he made no money when he started singing because he started with R&B songs. He said but soon as he changed his style of music to what people have termed madness, he began to make a lot of money. His words;

“What gives me inspiration is frustration. I was frustrated; I used to sing r’n’b songs just like my fans that were following from the beginning would know. I tried to do good music but it didn’t put food on my table, so frustration came up and frustration gave me a sign a sign that you have to make money through frustration. Right now I’m being termed a mad man because I make money through madness”.

Muslim-Muslim Ticket Is Political Arrogance


THE rumour has been making the rounds that the All Progressives Congress, APC, is plotting to unfold a presidential ticket made up of a Muslim for President and another Muslim for Vice President in the impending 2015 elections.

apc-toon_tinubu_and_buhari

The rumour has it that retired Major General Muhammadu Buhari will be the presidential candidate while his co-leader of the Party, Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will be his running mate. Some unnamed top officers of the party have been quoted as dismissing the rumour, as it is already kicking up storms that might threaten the fragile fabric of the newly amalgamated patchwork of three parties.

The Presidency is being blamed for this rumour, because the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its supporters have often demonised the APC as the “Janjaweed” and “Muslim Brotherhood” due to the overwhelming dominance of its commanding heights by Muslims from Arewa North and Yorubaland.

The APC has always rebuffed this labelling, accusing the PDP of playing the religious card against it because it has long sensed its imminent downfall at the party’s feet. Political sabre-rattling apart, I do hope, for its own sake that the APC will not dream of such double left-handed pairing for presentation to the Nigerian electorate.

It will result in one of the most comprehensive defeats in the annals of Nigeria’s presidential votes. It is not just a Muslim-Muslim ticket that will meet this sort of electoral waterloo. Any attempt to concoct a Christian-Christian ticket will fare no better.I do not think that any Christian presidential candidate will even contemplate it because Christians in Nigeria are far more sensitive to fair balancing of political scales than Muslims. Many Nigerian Muslims often assume, without any credible or proven shred of evidence, that their population is more than those of Christians.

They are always eager to take daring unilateral steps in favour of their religion, such as the enlistment of Nigeria in the Organisation of Islamic Conference, OIC, in 1996 without the matter being debated at the Supreme Military Council. Other instances include the design of the Presidential Villa with Muslim architecture, the design of Nigeria’s flag in Sokoto Caliphate (Usmaniyya) Muslim colours, the naming of Barbeach road in Victoria Island, Lagos after Ahmadu Bello signifying that he dipped the Koran into the Atlantic as he had boasted he would do, the inscription of Islamic messages in ajami in our currency notes, as well as the recitation of Koranic verses by Muslims before speaking at official public functions, without regard to the multi-religious complexion of such gatherings.

In April 1993 after the Social Democratic Party, SDP, convention in Jos, the winner of the Party’s presidential ticket, Alhaji Moshood Abiola, picked his closest rival, Alhaji Babagana Kingibe, as his running mate, thus creating the first Muslim-Muslim ticket for a presidential contest by a major national political party in Nigeria.

The ticket defeated its Muslim/Christian rival of the National Republican Convention, NRC, led by Alhaji Bashir Tofa with Dr Silverster Ugoh as running mate. Emboldened by the apparent magnanimity of the Nigerian Christian community in overlooking the anomaly because of the special circumstances of that time, the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, created another Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket with Malam Nuhu Ribadu as presidential candidate and Alhaji Fola Adeola as his running mate in the 2011 presidential poll contest.

The ACN only got 2.1 million votes, while the more balanced tickets of President Goodluck Jonathan/Vice President Namadi Sambo won with 22.5 million, followed by Muhammadu Buhari/Pastor Tunde Bakare (12.2 million). It is important for politicians to note that the Abiola/Kingibe winning ticket was a mere fluke. Prevailing factors made Nigerians to put aside ethnic, religious, regional and other divisive factors aside to vote for that ticket. Top among these was the fact that both Abiola and Kingibe were popular all over the country and had grassroots appeal each on his own steam.

Their cult images transcended primordial borders. Secondly, their opponent, Tofa was a dark horse, and his running mate, Ugoh, lacked popular support even among his Igbo people. Buhari is only popular among the rabble of the Muslim Arewa North, with little horizontal appeal among the elite even in the North. Tinubu is the prevailing political leader of the Yoruba people, but many are beginning to doubt his hold in the zone after the way he imposed family members and cronies in high places in the defunct ACN. Murmurings are getting louder over the marginalisation of Christians in his political fold.

The APC has to do something extraordinary to disprove the Muslim-domination tag developing around it or it will become a drag on its electoral fortunes. The truth be told, Nigeria is a multi-religious society. It is a country created to give ethnicity, region and religion their special places of pride. The original founding fathers of Nigeria’s independence, such as Dr Herbert Macaulay and Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe set out to make Nigeria more than a mere geographical expression by fomenting a nation united by common citizenship like the US and other progressive multi-racial societies.

But Chief Obafemi Awolowo and his Action Group brought tribalism into the country’s politic, while Sardauna Ahmadu Bello brought Islamic imperialism and Arewa fundamentalism. Between these two, Macaulay and Zik’s nationalism was defeated and Nigeria has lived for ever unhappily after. Political parties that seek to win elections in Nigeria must carefully and strategically balance their tickets between Christianity and Islam and between North and South, East and West. It is not only equity; it is the right thing to do.

There will be no shortage of talents from any corner of Nigeria to carry out the balancing act. To say it does not matter is self-deceit. If a section of Nigeria will not accept a Christian/Christian ticket, what makes it think the others will accept a Muslim/Muslim one? The sectarian violence masquerading in Sharia riots, Boko Haram attacks, Fulani militia strikes on Christian-dominated hamlets at night and places of worship in Northern Nigeria cannot promote a political society where religion does not matter. Those who ignore the Nigerian reality and present “single-cell” presidential tickets must be ready to accept the defeat that awaits them.

Ibrahim

The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a middle aged man, for raping a woman and beheading her two year old boy in Ofada town in Obafemi/Owode local government area of the State.

The suspect, identified as ‎Mamodu Bashir Ibrahim, reportedly trailed the woman into the bush where she had gone to ease herself, pounced on her despite the baby tied to her back and dragged both into an uncompleted building. Police believe the man then raped the woman and stabbed her. He was also alleged to have severed the boy’s head.

PMNews reports that someone who smelled foul play, trailed the suspect and his captives into the building. The suspect was said to have initially escaped. The woman was rescued. But the effort came too late for the boy. He was dead and his severed head had been taken away.

When he was arrested, the suspect led men from the Criminal Investigation Department, CID of the State Police Command to the scene to locate the head, but it could not be found again. Only the knife with which the suspect perpetrated the act was discovered at the scene.

The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP, Olumuyiwa Adejobi said the suspect was arrested through the help of some community leaders, who monitored him after he fled the area to Ibafo, a nearby community, immediately he committed the crime.

Adejobi added that further interrogation of the suspect revealed that he had sold the head of the boy to a woman in Ibadan, adding that the detectives from the State Police Command are on the trail of the buyer.

Speaking with journalists at the scene of the crime, which was filled with blood stains, the suspect confirmed he raped the woman, killed her son and severed his head which he claimed he threw away into the bush. He also informed the detectives that he has an accomplice who resides in Ibadan.

Senate C’ttee On FCT Pledges CCTV In Abuja Parks, Commercial Areas


GEJ-NyanyaThe senate committee on the Federal Capital Territory yesterday promised to make available adequate funds in the current fiscal year for the FCT Administration to make it provide enough Close Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras in all the motor parks in the city.

Chairman of the Committee, Senator Smart Adeyemi (PDP/Kogi) made this known in a parley with reporters after he led a team of other senators on a visit to the scene of Monday morning’s bomb blast in Nyanya, which left over 71 persons dead.

Adeyemi, who also visited the injured at the various hospitals where they are currently receiving treatment, described the incident as unfortunate and assured Nigerians that government would continue to do its best to secure their lives and property.

He said, “Abuja has been relatively safe in the last one year so to speak. It is unfortunate that this has happened. On our part we would look at the possibility of ensuring that now that we are still working on the FCT Statutory budget.

“We hope to make enough funding for security. We are going to ensure that virtually in all parks and commercial centres of the city would have cameras that can capture movement of people.

“Cameras that would be far above what people can tamper with. In essence we are going to ensure that good cameras are purchased. We are going to purchase CCTV’s that are of international standard that can really do the job for us.

“We must realise now that we are faced with a very serious problem. I sympathise with the families whose loved ones died in this blast. It is so painful. It is inexplicable. These are things that about a decade ago we read about happened in faraway nations of the world”.

The senator expressed concern that majority of those who died on Monday were Nigerians struggling to earn a living and could not afford three square meals.

He said, “I feel moved when I saw shoes and motorcycles. These were real people struggling to survive who have to die this way. My appeal to all those who may be involved in these attacks is to please have mercy on us and let us live in peace”.

The Chairman, Governing Council of the National Hospital, Abuja, Dr.Tony Okam, who also spoke with reporters, said “despite the tight environment, the staff have been doing their best”.

He also denied speculations that the hospital was over-stretched as a result of the blast.

8 Things You Should Know About Yaya Toure’


Professional Ivorian footballer Yaya Toure’ has made quite a big name and a good success story over the years in the world of football.
Yaya Toure Elephant
Known for his versatility and power on the field, the Manchester City player has won African Footballer of the Year three years in a row (2011, 2012 and 2013).
While he may be a favourite for a lot of fans on the field, his football skills aren’t the only things worth knowing about him. Here are 8 things you may not know about Yaya Toure’;

He got his first pair of football boots at the age of 10: A natural talent, he played football with friends and family in the streets of Abidjan from a young age. He soon followed in his older brother Kolo’s footsteps to become a key player for the local youth team, ASEC Mimosas.

He is a practicing Muslim: Frequently named Man of the Match during his time in the Premier League, Touré has turned down the English tradition of champagne after league games in accordance with his religious beliefs.

He almost joined Arsenal in 2003: While playing for the Belgian team, Beveren, Touré trialed with Arsenal in 2003. While the manager was interested in signing him, he had difficulties getting a work permit to play in England. Rather than waiting, Touré took a contract with the Ukrainian team Metalurh Donetsk instead, where he played for more than a year.

His two brothers are professional footballers: Most are familiar with older brother Kolo Touré, Yaya’s teammate both on the Côte d’Ivoire national team and Manchester City, before Kolo was transferred to Liverpool in 2013. Few may be able to name Yaya’s younger brother, Ibrahim Touré, however, who plays for Al-Safa Sporting Club in Lebanon.

He is one of the few midfielders to win African Footballer of the Year: Before Yaya’s first African Footballer of the Year award in 2011, the previous 12 years’ awards had gone to African forwards. As forwards receive more scoring opportunities, they occupy higher-profile positions on the field and receive recognition more often.

He has a history of being targeted by racist mobs: Yaya has commented several times on his love of playing football in England, where racist mobs targeting black players is a rare occurrence. The worst incidents occurred while he was playing in Portugal and Moscow.

He stays behind after training everyday: A strong believer that practice makes perfect, Yaya stays behind after practice in order to continue to improve his free-kick technique in particular.

He is a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. Environment Program: After joining a campaign against elephant poaching in October, Yaya was named a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. and helps to raise awareness about the problem, along with other environmental issues.

We Were Misled On Missing School Girls, DHQ Admits


soldiers-The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) Thursday admitted that troops were still searching for majority of the girls abducted by suspected Boko Haram gunmen at the Government Girls’ Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State.

As at the time of going to press, the whereabouts of about 99 out of the 129 missing school girls remains unknown.

There was controversy on Wednesday when the Borno State Government contradicted the DHQ, which said troops had rescued 80 of the school girls, saying only 30 of them have been found.

The DHQ said the report forwarded to the public on the purported rescue of 80 girls was done in good faith and not intended to deceive the public or play politics.

Director of Defence Information, Major-General Chris Olukolade, made the clarifications in a statement following the controversy over the fate of the abducted girls.

The statement said: “The controversy that has been generated around the efforts at securing the lives of the abducted students of Government Girls’ Secondary School, Chibok is unfortunate.

“The ongoing frantic efforts of security forces along with vigilante groups, including, hunters working to locate and free the abducted students have continued to be keenly monitored at the Operation Centre of the Defence and Army Headquarters as regular progress reports are being received from troops on the ground.

“In this regard, a report was filed in from the field indicating that a major breakthrough had been recorded in the search.  There was no reason to doubt this official channel, hence the information was released to the public immediately.

“Surprisingly however, the school principal, one of the sources quoted in the report, has denied all that was attributed to her – for whatever reasons.

“This is an unfortunate development, indeed, yet the Defence Headquarters would not want to join issues with anyone.

“It has to be reaffirmed however, that the report forwarded to the public on this issue was in good faith and not intended to deceive the public as is being interpreted following the denials by the school principal and government of Borno State.

“Like all other citizens, the military is deeply concerned to ensure that the students are safe and freed alive.  There is indeed no reason to play politics with the precious lives of the students.  The number of those still missing is not the issue now as the life of every Nigerian is very precious.

“In the light of the denial by the principal of the school, the Defence Headquarters wishes to defer to the school principal and governor’s statement on the number of students still missing and retract that aspect of earlier statement while the search continues”.

You Must Find These Girls! – NLC


aaa3c-bokoharam2

The Nigeria Labour Congress is outraged and appalled by the abduction of over a 100 female students from a school at Chibok in Borno State in the early hours of Tuesday who were said to have been roused from sleep and forced into waiting trucks and driven to an unknown destination. This is disgusting, repugnant,

nauseating, chilling and totally unacceptable. This is a heinous crime ag0ainst our children, our women, the Nigerian nation and against humanity, and must not be allowed to stand.

The Nigerian security forces must restore their honour and dignity by speedily finding and rescuing these young and innocent girls before any more harm befalls them. It is mind-boggling that in spite of repeated assaults on schools in the North East, no appreciable effort has been made to secure the schools where these students have had to study under the most hostile conditions.

It is equally amazing that in spite of the supposedly innumerable security checkpoints in the region, truck-loads of young girls could disappear into thin air in a Sahel region! 

Although we at the  Nigeria Labour Congress would not want to be sucked into the raging arguments of duplicity and complicity surrounding the anti-terror campaign in the North East,  we wish to express our concerns. 

We fear that except there is a fundamental change of strategy that involves the people and reflects basic security initiatives, we will pay a heavy price in the North East.

It is absolutely important that neither the insurgents nor government contractors be allowed to take control of this war. 

Meanwhile, we commend the fighting spirit, the  resourcefulness and the staying  power of the people of the North East who have put up with unspeakable losses and indescribable violations and deprivations

We salute their courage and patriotism and their sense of self-worth.

Revealed: Why Jonathan Attended Political Rally A Day After Abuja Bomb Blast – Maku


  

photo

The Federal Government has come out defend President Goodluck’s Jonathan visit to Kano few hours after the Abuja bomb blast which killed many on Monday.

Speaking at the end of the weekly Executive Council of the Federation, FEC, meeting on Wednesday, the Information Minister, Labaran Maku, said Jonathan had to attend the rally to prove to the terrorists that they cannot cripple the activities of government and they also cannot stop the administration of this country which, he said, was their fundamental aim.

According to Mr. Maku, it is incorrect for anyone to say the President is insentitive as he called off his trip to Ibadan and visited the site personally after the incident, adding that the criticisms of the president’s actions were coming from politicians who are trying to use the issue to their advantage.

I think that this is very bad… We should not be exploiting the emotion of citizens for a cheap political point,” he said.

He added that government was doing everything possible to ensure that anywhere Nigerians are attacked, relief items are provided promptly and the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA has been strengthened tor espond to such attacks promptly.

He however condemned the media reportage of the blast, saying the FEC were disturbed at the way gory pictures of the blast were being published and circulated and called for a restraint in the reporting of such incidents.

Yes, we must report, but in reporting, we must be sensitive to the psychological state of our people,” he said.

He therefore called on Nigerians to not allow the spate of terrorism dampen their spirit but rather, they should be united in committed to kicking out terrorism from the country.

The president had faced harsh criticisms from Nigerians for attending a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, politically rally in Kano State, a day after a terrible blast in Nyanya park in Abuja.

We are here to serve form 48 on Chief Victor Umeh and Alhaji Sani Shinkafi, which is the first proceeding in contempt of court. They have evading service which we decided to come and paste at the premises of the APGA headquarters,” Okwu said.

The national chairman explained that the resistance by Umeh’s aides was their way of obeying last orders pointing out that “we are not here to fight, that is what I have made those with us to understand, this is a peaceful party; they are obeying last orders.”

There’ll Be More Bomb Blasts, Buhari Will Quit’ – More Prophecies From Primate Ayodele


photoFounder, Inri Evangelical Spiritual Church, Oke Afa, Isolo, Lagos, Primate Ayodele whose predictions are said to always come to pass has revealed in a recent interview that there will be more bomb blasts in the nation.

He said since security intelligence does not recognise prophecy, bloodletting will continue.

According to him, there are moles in the Presidency, the Senate, House Of Representatives, SSS, Nigeria Police Force, the Army, Air Force and the Navy who give information to these terrorists and President Jonathan knows who they are but is afraid to stand up to them, adding that their next targets are shopping malls and markets.

He explained that with prayers, these problems can be solved but the nation’s leaders have soiled their hands in evil acts and they derive pleasure in the shedding of blood.

He said, “If Jonathan comes back 100 times to rule this country, he won’t be able to solve the problems. He does not listen to the voice of God, flattery and deceit are good music to him. When you praise him he is always happy. Most of the pastors he goes to are afraid to tell him the truth. There is red signal all over the country.”

On the confab, he said they will speak the mind of the people and make recommendations but the government will not listen.

On the political situation in the country, he said members of the All Progressives Congress, APC will defect to PDP before the 2015 elections and if APC refuses to give Muhammadu Buhari the ticket to contest the presidency he will quit, adding that there will be no elections in some state.

He called on all governors to pray so as not to lose four of their own to the cold hands of death.

On the abducted students, he said they will come out unhurt.

Speaking on Super Eagles and the world cup, he said they will try but they won’t get to the semi-final and Coach Stephen Keshi will quit coaching them after the World Cup.

On the missing Malaysian flight, he said the Malaysian government should be held responsible because they know its whereabouts.

This is coming few weeks after Laide’s new hubby, popular Lagos businessman, Alhaji Tunde Oriowo was declared wanted by the EFCC for fraud

The ex-husband, Olumide in an interview with 247 magazine:

“You see, Laide has just started. She hasn’t even reached where she’s going. She will soon leave this Alhaji because she likes a comfortable place. I heard she claims that I don’t have money. Now she’s where she can get money. When I met her, she was driving a Celica. I bought her a 2 million Chrysler car. When she had our child, I bought a first-class ticket for her to bring our baby.”

“I later bought Infinity Jeep that she gave her younger sibling. When she was about to marry me, it was the money she saw. When she came to America, I bought her a 4matic Benz. Laide isn’t a good person, she is yet to see God’s wrath.”

Meanwhile the mother of two in a statement defended her husband saying: “I’m standing by my husband on this matter, believing that the EFCC publication was meant to destroy his hard-earned reputation as a philanthropist who derives joy in helping people. He is my hubby and I would stand by him through thick and thin. The story was also a calculated attempt to smear my own name as a celebrity and irrespective of whoever is behind it, I stand by my husband and we shall come out victorious.”

It would be recalled that Laide Bakare’s last year had a messy marriage separation with her ex-husband, Olumide, the father of her first child, Similoluwa after the latter accused her of using him to get a green card and dumping him afterwards for her new hubby, Alhaji Oriowo.

Laide Bakare now married to Tunde Oriowo has a son for him, she gave birth to last year.

The two were at it for a while, with the estranged husband claiming he’s the father of her second child and not the new husband, also threatened to have her arrested. Of course Laide Bakare did not keep silence on the issue while exonerating herself, lambasted her ex, revealed some shocking details about their marriage.

Insecurity In Nigeria – APC Governors Absent At Meeting With President Jonathan


All Progressives Congress (APC) governors have shunned the meeting President Jonathan summoned on Wednesday with the all state governors, service chiefs and members of the National Security Council to discuss the current spate of insecurity in the country.

photo

The meeting started at 2.00pm at the First Lady Conference Room in the State House, Abuja, on Thursday and the APC governors were obviously absent at the meeting.

2015: ‘Nobody Can Stop My Presidential Ambition’ – Tinubu


photo

Former Governor of Lagos State and a leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has declared that nobody can stop him from contesting for the post of Presidency in 2015 elections if he decides to run.

Speaking yesterday at the APC secretariat in Lagos, Tinubu said he has every right to be the President of Nigeria regardless of his religion and state of origin adding that the APC will field the best candidate in 2015 election, whether the person is a Christian or a Muslim.

We must choose the right person to lead the battle, and nobody, no one under the sun, under the United Nations Human Rights Charter can stop Bola Tinubu’s ambition,” he said.

According to Tinubu, it doesn’t matter whether you are a Christian or Muslim, as long as you are a good person, the APC will support you.

The solution to the suffering of the masses is not about the prayer of a pastor or about the Islamic cleric. What we are talking about is not an election of a vicar or bishop not of a Muslim Imam or cleric; it is about individual with the character and the brain and the capacity to govern. “If you are a Christian and you are good, you will win our support,” Tinubu said.

He advised those opposing his political aspiration to find something else to do.

Speaking on the state of the nation, he said Jonathan’s administration had failed Nigerians, adding that at the time of need, Nigerians must choose the right leaders to face the battle and confront the challenges facing the country.

On whether the successor of Lagos state governor Babatunde Fashola should be a Muslim or Christian, Tinubu urged the party’s faithful to shun those promoting Muslim or Christian agenda in Lagos.

‘We Informed Security Agents Ahead Of Attack But They Fled’ – Chibok Resident Opens Up


photo

A resident of Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State have said they informed security officials about impending attack by Boko Haram insurgents on the community but no action was taken.

According to the resident who is an uncle to one of the abducted girls, they had gotten information from a reliable source that the Boko Haram members had plans of Attacking Chibok after wrecking havoc on other neighbouring communities.

He said rather than take action, the security men in Damboa told their colleagues in Chibok to run away since they did not have the weapons to fight the Boko Haram members.

“So, the soldiers ran away on Monday around 8.pm and left only mobile policemen and one soldier. The Boko Haram people killed one mopol, the soldier was killed when he was trying to jump a fence,” the resident said.

He explained that the insurgents divided themselves into two groups, one group going to Chibok town and the other to Government Secondary School where they abducted over a hundred girls, adding that apart from the girls who were said to have escaped, he had no information about any other girl that returned yesterday.

He said security has however been beefed up in the area.

The Annual Penis Festival just Happened – in Japan! (SEE PHOTOS)


Embedded image permalink

This has to be one of the weirdest festivals ever! During spring in Japan, every year, people flock to Kawasaki to celebrate Kanamara Matsuri aka the “Festival of the Steel Phallus.”

Held this year on April 6, the festival is a celebration of the penis and fertility in a no-holds-barred kind of way. And it is carried out in a carnivalesque, friendly atmosphere that puts a smile on the face of every visitor.
People parade gigantic phallic-shaped mikoshi (portable Shinto shrines) down the streets during the event, as revelers suck on penis lollipops, buy penis-themed memorabilia and pose with sculptures in the shape of — you guessed it — penises. See more photos below:

According to the BBC, the festival is believed to have roots in the 17th century, when prostitutes are said to have prayed for protection from sexually transmitted infections at Kawasaki’s Kanamara shrine. But today, the festival reportedly raises awareness about safe sex practices and fundraises for HIV prevention.

Scroll down to see the (somewhat NSFW) photographs of this year’s Kanamara Matsuri:which attracts both masses of locals and a considerable tourist contingent.

Nigerian Arrested In India With Heroine Concealed In Lady shoes.


A Nigerian, Odeomenan Kenneth Ozioma, has been reported to have been arrested in New Delhi, India with heroine concealed in a lady’s shoes.

It was said that the 23-year-old Nigerian kept the heroine weighing 330grammes in specially made cavities in the shoes, meant to be sent by courier to the United States.

According to additional commissioner, crime branch, Ravindra Yadav: “The heroin weighs 330 grams which is worth Rs 70 lakh(about $120,000) in the international market. The arrested man has been identified as 23-year-old Odeomenan Kenneth Ozioma. He was nabbed by a team led by DCP Bhisham Singh and ACP Zile Singh.”

Reports stated that Indian police received a tip-off on April 14 about a Nigerian drug trafficker coming to Janakpuri Metro station.

“A team laid a trap and apprehended him. During investigations, 330 grams of heroin, cleverly concealed in the specially made cavities in the soles of women’s sandals, was recovered from his possession. He disclosed he was heading to Mahipalpur to courier the drugs to the US,” DCP (crime) Bhisham Singh said.

Drug traffickers have been befuddling Indian security with their changing tactics, concealing drugs in ordinary objects. Drugs sometimes are hidden in piston shafts or golf kits. The modus operandi keeps changing.

According to reports, Kenneth completed high school education in South Africa and had come to India in November 2009. He started a business of exporting ready-made garments and women’s shoes to Nigeria. But he was not earning much. When his visa expired, he moved to Mumbai where he met another Nigerian, Ike, at a party.

Ike showed him how to peddle heroin and other party drugs. He soon closed his business and devoted himself completely to his new occupation. He sent the money earned to his parents in Nigeria and started living a good life.

kalu-ibb

Speaking to journalist after the meeting which lasted for about 2 hours, Kalu said he and IBB were having a heart-to-heart discussion on national issues and the future of Nigeria.

He said their discussion bordered on the insecurity in the country and how to put a stop to it.

This is my home and I am always here. I always come to seek advice and have a talk with Babangida on issues that matter a lot. I came here to discuss the level of insecurity in our country. It is a thing of national concern to all of us,” Kalu said.

Kalu, who said he could not divulge all they discussed, explained that Babangida will relay their discussions to the president, ministers, security agencies and others.

Kalu countered insinuations that the killings in the North-East were targeted at the Igbos, saying the attacks should be viewed as an attack on all rather than on any group of people.

Kalu explained, “The killings are not about the Igbos. Remember I told you people when it started. It started with the Igbos, after that, Christians became the target. Now they are after Muslims. Now they are after everybody. It is no longer about Igbos, Christians or Muslims. We are all involved”.

The former governor had earlier paid a visit to Niger State governor, Dr Muazu Babangida Aliyu where he insited that Nigeria needed a two party system.

Principal Of GGSS Reveals: Military Lied About Rescue Of Abducted Female Students


Today, April 17, the Principal of Government Girls Secondary School (GGSS) Chibok claimed that the rescue of 107 abducted school girls in Borno is false.

chibok_dhq_09

The principal Asabe Kwambura said: “There is nothing in the military statement that is true about our abducted girls. Up till now we are still waiting and praying for the safe return of the students; all I know is that we have only 14 of them, and the security people especially the Vigilante and the well meaning volunteers of Gwoza are still out searching for them.”

According to her, the military people are still searching the girls. She said that the management of the school haven’t received any information about rescued students. She underlined that “all the information passed on the media by the military concerning 107 girls is not true.”

Mrs. Kwambura confessed she was contacted by the military headquarters in Abuja yesterday and some person was asking her to confirm the number of girls released.

However, the principal admitted that what Borno State Governor said (about 14 girls that escaped and N50m for any info) is still the true picture of the whole issue.

“I told them that I don’t want to be seen to be contradicting myself on that because what the governor said was what we know about; and I told them there may be additional rescue of the girls, but up to this moment we have not received any of them apart from what we had before,” the principal added.

On Wednesday, the military spokesperson at the Defence Headquarters, Major General Chris Olukolade, stated that 107 abducted girls were freed, that only eight of the girls were still missing. He added that the Boko Haram sect that participated in the abduction was nabbed by the military.

The Defence Headquarters Nigeria also posted a message on Facebook about rescue of the abducted girls.

A top official of the Department of State Service (DSS) in Maiduguri also admitted that they don’t have any information about rescued girls apart from the 14 that escaped.

A female senior Civil Servant with the Borno state government, who requested not to be named said, “What kind of nonsense is this for God sake? Why are they playing politics with the lives of these innocent girls; I had just called some of my relatives in Chibok and they told me none of the girls had been released apart from the 14 that escaped back to town. We hope the military is not doing some thing funny with this very sensitive issue.”

When contacted late last night, Mr. Olukolade insisted it was the principal of the school who told the military that only eight girls were now missing.

We’re Hungry”- Abuja Bomb Blast victims In General Hospital Cries Out



According to report by Premium Times;

Some victims of Monday’s bomb blast receiving medical attention at the Asokoro General Hospital in Abuja are currently facing hunger as no one is providing them with food.

One of the survivors, Salome Jim, told Premium Times that she’s only received drugs and drips from the hospital management but no one has given her anything to eat.
“I have been sitting down here waiting for surgery. I am in pain, I am very hungry. No one has come here to give me food, I can neither walk nor move, the nurses and doctors are nice to me but they didn’t give me food. The nurse said she will come and attend to me at 9:30 am this morning and this is 9 o’ clock so I am waiting, but when I came here yesterday they took care of me, I didn’t pay for anything, but they didn’t give us food. I went to bed with an empty stomach, the woman inside the ward over there (she pointed) shared her food with me at midnight, as I am here my relatives don’t know I am here as I couldn’t find my phone.” She said.

Another survivor, Shuaibu Abubakar, who suffers psychological imbalance and pains in his legs said he had not eaten since Monday when he was brought to the hospital.

“I did not eat anything I was too weak to eat but at midnight I couldn’t sleep out of hunger. The last time I ate was on Sunday evening, but there was no food provision. Some people from the mosque came here to give me bread and tea this morning, the hospital only gave us injections and drips. I am still hungry, broke and with no money.” he said

The Minister of Health Onyebuchi Chukwu during his visit to the Asokoro Hospital was asked by reporters why the victims had not been fed by the hospital. He denied knowledge of that and said the Hospital management would look into it

“The management of the hospitals will go back after my departure to find the true situation and sort it out. All hospitals have been very cooperative this is the main situation.” he said.

An official of the Asokoro General Hospital who spoke anonymously to Premium Times confirmed that the victims were being administered drugs on empty stomachs.

“Some of the victims cannot eat just yet, but some of them who can eat do not have the money to eat, the government can’t only be administering drugs on empty stomachs it can lead to other serious cases. We all tried yesterday but not even a single word of commendations from the government. You people should let Nigerians know the bomb blast victims are hungry and are not fed,” the official said.

Photo:- Mentally Challenged woman allegedly caught with BlackBerry, 100K & ATM cards in Lagos


A woman who is pretending to be mentally-challenged escaped being lynched by angry mob on Wednesday in Lagos after she was allegedly caught with N100,000, two BlackBerry phones and an android phone.

According to report from the scene of the incident around Onabanjo Street, Oworonshoki, Lagos, it was learnt that the incident occurred around 10am. The woman has been arrested and taking to station.

 

A policeman who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said attempts to verify the allegations were fruitless. He said, “I have been asking the woman questions all day, but she has just been incoherent. She has even refused to tell us her name. At some point, she just started crying, so I let her sleep. I don’t even know if she is a mad woman.”

 

Some residents of the area told Punch that two ATM cards were also found on the woman. A resident, James Ogunkoya said when some youths saw the woman with some money, they trailed her into a compound.

The youths, who suspected her of being a ritual killer, pounced on her and beat her to a pulp.

Ogunkoya said, “Around 10am, I saw a crowd around an unkempt woman. Some of the youths picked up sticks and were beating the woman. When I asked what was wrong, they said they found three phones and N100,000 with the her. They said the woman was not mad, but was only pretending to be mad so that she could easily perpetrate evil acts.”

Another resident said the youths started suspecting her as she was overheard speaking like a normal person with somebody two days ago. “Some guys were convinced that the woman was only pretending because they overheard her talking with a man on Monday night. They also wondered where a mad woman could have found the phones,” he added.

“The notorious cannibal, Clifford Oji, used to parade himself as a mad man as well. We have also seen cases in our neighbourhood where supposed mad people kidnapped children. We want the government to support the community in setting up a task force that will evacuate mentally-challenged people,” a leader said.

 

 

Anyway, Nigeria Police say they are not making any conclusions yet until they conclude their investigations.

Actress Monalisa Chinda Confirms Break Up From Lanre Nzeribe, Releases Official Statement


The beautiful Nollywood actress has released an official statement through her publicist confirming reports that she has ended both her personal and professional relationship with Lanre Nzeribe.

Read below.

We regret to officially announce the resignation of Nollywood actress Monalisa Chinda from Monalisa Magazine, which also marks the end of her partnership with Mr. Lanre Nzeribe, due to irreconcilable professional differences.

Over the past few months, both parties have made concerted efforts to retain their partnership, to no avail, which led to their mutual agreement that a separation would be the best course of action.

Though she has, so far, committed so much time, energy and resources into the project, it is high time she moved on as she pursues renewed ethos to raise her standards of professionalism and focus on projects closer to her heart.

Monalisa Chinda extends her sincere appreciation to the entire staff of the company for the great working experience during the time being. She wishes Mr. Nzeribe and the staff all the best in their future endeavours.

She also wishes to express her profound gratitude to her wonderful fans for their unreserved support through the years. Thank you for your continued support as the Monalisa brand promises greater things to come.

Signed,

Patience Jonathan Calls For Release Of Abducted Girls, Borno Govt. Offers N50M For Any Info


Patience_Jonathan

Dame Patience Jonathan, the First Lady of Nigeria

In a statement signed by Ayo Adewuyi, Media Assistant to the First Lady in Abuja, Jonathan appealed to the perpetrators to release the innocent girls and embrace dialogue to settle their differences.

The first lady was pained as a woman and mother by the reported abduction of the girls.

She said the action was “inhuman and needless perpetration of evil against innocent school children.

It has again become necessary for us to strengthen the advocacy for resolving differences in our society in a peaceful manner, to avert violence and wars in our country.

No nation profits from a regime of fear and insecurity because where there is no peace, there cannot be development,” the statement said.

She said that Nigeria had suffered enough severe loss due to violence and destruction.

“There is the need to put a stop to all these, in order to put the nation back on track and enable our leaders to focus on development,” she stated.

Jonathan called on Nigerians to intensify their prayers for God to touch the hearts of the evil perpetrators, to enable the nation to overcome acts of terrorism.

Meanwhile Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State promised to give N50 million to any individual or group that would volunteer credible information on the whereabouts of girls abducted at GGSS Chibok on Monday.

The visibly shocked governor addressed a press conference at the government house today.

“Even in Islam, women and children are spared during war,” he said.

Shettima said 14 of the abducted girls have returned and he is in touch with the principal of the school and the district head of Chibok.

As reported earlier today over 80 students of the Government Girls’ Secondary School in Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State who were abducted by the dreaded Boko Haram sect were rescued on Tuesday and Wednesday morning by a group of vigilante, local hunters and soldiers.
