Boko Haram poisons water sources in Borno - Nigerian Army


Press statement from the Nigerian Army Information reaching the Theatre Command, Operation Lafiya Dole indicates that Boko Haram terrorists have now resorted to poisoning water sources like wells and streams in areas they were dislodged by gallant troops or areas threatened by offensive operations. 

The latest being the poisoning of the cattle water ponds in Kangallam village along Marte and Abadam axis in Borno State where a large number of cattle died after drinking water from the ponds. Credible information available to the Theatre Command indicates that though no human life was lost as a result of the barbaric act of the terrorists, however, some cattle were killed after drinking water from some poisoned sources. 


The action of the terrorists is no doubt aimed at taking their own pound of flesh on the innocent citizens and livestock as a result of the unbearable offensive operations through the combined effort of the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Air Force to route them out completely from their enclaves and hide-outs all over the North East.

US Executes Woman Despite Plea From Pope, UN


The US state of Georgia has executed its first woman in 70 years, despite an appeal for clemency by Pope Francis. Kelly Gissendaner, 47, died by lethal injection at 12:21am (local time) at Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson, a prison spokeswoman said.

Gissendaner was sentenced to death after being convicted of what is known in the state as malice murder for her role in plotting the killing of her husband Douglas in 1997.

Pope Francis, who concluded a six-day US trip at the weekend and is an outspoken opponent of the death penalty, had urged officials to commute her death sentence.

Gissendaner's execution marks the first death sentence carried out against a woman in Georgia since 1945. She was the 16th woman executed in the US since the Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976. The court denied last-minute requests for a stay of execution.

The state's board of pardons and paroles met the day before the execution to decide whether its refusal earlier this year to commute Gissendaner's sentence to life in prison should stand. Board members were not swayed by her latest appeal for clemency, which emphasised her model behaviour in prison and her remorse.

School Boy Falls To His Death While Taking Bizzare Selfie

A schoolboy has fallen to his death after trying to take an 'extreme selfie' on a ninth-floor rooftop with his friend.

The 17-year-old student apparently climbed to the top of a building in Vologda, Russia, with a companion one evening last week with the intention of creating a photo of himself dangling off the towering structure.

Armed with rope and his phone, he approached the edge of the rooftop in the fading light and lowered himself over it. But seconds later, the rope gave way and he plummeted nine floors, according to local media reports.

Although several bushes below the rooftop cushioned the boy's fall, he suffered extensive and severe injuries. He was rushed to a hospital in eastern Russia's Vologda Oblast region, where he died around two hours later.

The 53-year-old Hollywood actor is “shocked and deeply saddened” by the apparent suicide of Cathriona White, 30, who was found dead day days after the couple reportedly split.
 
Cathriona’s lifeless body was discovered at her LA apartment on Monday night after the Irish makeup artist posted a worrying string of messages on her social media accounts in the past week. On Thursday Cathriona, wrote: “Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest. [Love and peace] to yo all”
 
And on Wednesday she quoted the poet W B Yeats on her Instagram account: “Faeries, come take me out of this dull world, For I would ride with you upon the wind, Run on the top of the dishevelled tide, And dance upon the mountains like a flame.” Reports say Cathriona left a suicide note addressed to Carrey with “references to their break up on Thursday”.

Hajj Stampede: Nigeria Records Third Highest Death Toll


Nigeria now records the third highest death toll in the stampede that claims the lives of hundreds of pilgrims and injured even more in Saudi Arabia.

With the confirmation of the death of 64 pilgrims by the Nigerian Hajj Commission, an even more grim submission by the Commission points out that about 244 pilgrims still remain unaccounted for, which could mean that the death toll could rise even further.

Below is the breakdown of the casualty figures of each country:

– Iran: 228 dead and 246 missing
– Egypt: 78 dead

Nigeria Police Reacts to Olu Falae's Ransom Claims

Chief Olu Falae had earlier opened up on his recent kidnap and release. He revealed that the police wasn't actively involved as they made it seem, saying that his family paid a ransom and the IGP lied. If you missed it, read it here. Well, the police have reacted with their own side of the story.
 
The office of the Inspector-General of Police has been inundated with enquiries on claims by Chief Olu Falae and his family that a ransom was paid to his abductors following the kidnapping incident involving him on 21st September, 2015 and eventual release on 24th September, 2015.
 
As a law enforcement agency guided by rule of law and professional ethics we do not under any circumstance encourage the payment of ransom to kidnappers or other criminals as it is tantamount to rewarding crime and motivating other criminals to follow that path.
 
As such, the Police was not in any way privy to any arrangement that would have led to payment of ransom by the elder statesman or his family. For the respected Chief to declare that he paid a ransom for his release is therefore, a demotivating news.
 

Finally, Sanusi Responds To Critics On His Marriage To Saadatu


I am sure NC members all have their views and have kept quiet out of (appropriate) deference to our right to make our individual choice. Obviously I do not need to explain anything to anyone in a purely personal matter but a few points are worthy of note:

1. The lady in question is 18 and therefore legally of age to marry under all laws and certainly under Muslim law.

2. She is proceeding for her undergraduate education in the UK in January. She had an A in computer science in her O levels and plans to get a degree in computer science.

3. Each and every one of my wives is a university graduate and some have worked and then stopped and in each case the choice was purely theirs.

4. It is a tradition in Kano that emirs and princes in choosing wives consider issues beyond the individual. The family is in every sense a social unit. My predecessor was married to princesses from Ilorin, Katsina and Sokoto.

5. The relationship between the late Lamido of Adamawa Aliyu Musdafa the father of the current Lamido is well known. Lamido Aliyu was the first emir turbaned after emir Sanusi I and they remained close until Sanusi’s death. My own relationship with the current Lamido dates back to 1981 when he was Ciroma and commissioner for works.

Falae Opens Up "My Family Paid Ransom For My Freedom, IGP Lied"


Chief Olu Falae has finally opened up on his recent kidnap. The former presidential aspirant and revealed that his family paid ransom to his abductors before he was freed on Thursday.

He said the kidnappers only freed him after they received payment, adding that he trekked for 15 kilometres before he was picked up by the police in Owo, several kilometres from Akure, the Ondo State capital.

The former minister’s disclosure has put a lie to the claim by the Nigeria police that no ransom was paid before his release. Arase had earlier claimed that no ransom was paid for his release.

Arase earlier said in an interview after he accompanied Falae home, “The important thing now is that Baba Falae is back home safe and sound according to the mandate given to me by the President. He said that no ransom was paid and that nobody has been arrested.

Asked about where the victim was rescued, the IGP said it was a security matter and not meant for public consumption.

Ambode’s Mediocre List of Commissioners Full Of Tinubu’s Relatives, Friends –PDP


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State has lambasted Governor Akinwunmi Ambode over the list of commissioners and advisers he sent to the Lagos State House of Assembly. 

The Lagos PDP Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, told DAILY POST in an interview on Monday that most of the nominees were not competent but were only named based on sentiment. Gani said two of the nominees, Lola Akande and Deji Tinubu, are relatives of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. While Akande is the sister of Tinubu’s wife, Senator Remi Tinubu, the other nominee, Deji, is the nephew of the APC leader. 


Also, Mr. Kehinde Bamigbetan, was Tinubu’s Chief Press Secretary from 2003 to 2007 while Gbolahan Lawal was Tinubu’s Aide-de-Camp when he was governor. He, therefore, stated that the change the APC was advocating in Lagos was not a positive one but one that would take the state backwards.

Woman Arrested For Attempting To Use Twins For Fraud


Police operatives attached to Pen Cinema police station in Agege, Lagos, on Sunday arrested a woman for trying to use twins belonging to Mrs. Ruth Uche for fraud.

The woman was nabbed at College Road Estate, after she took the four- month old babies to a retired police commissioner’s house, claiming they were his grandchildren. The Nation gathered that the suspect, a mother of two, identified as Victoria, was introduced to the Uches by one of their neighbours. She was said to have deceived the children’s parents that she wanted them to appear in a film. Although Ruth’s husband, Emeka Uche, was said to have declined initially, he eventually consented to her request on the condition that his wife must go along with the children. But rather than taking them for the film shooting as claimed, she reportedly carried them to the big man’s house, who was overjoyed when he saw the children. Trouble, however, started after the suspect could not state the actual sex and age of the babies.

Victoria, who had earlier taken pictures of the twins and sent to the man, had told him they were boys and two months old. But when the retired commissioner eventually saw the babies, he realised they were a boy and girl, and looked much older than two months. It was at that point that Mrs. Uche suspected something was amiss and told the man the babies’ actual age and sex. “I did not understand what was going on. I do not even know the place we went to. She has been pleading with us that she wanted to use the twins (youngest set) in a film.

Buhari Prevented From Meeting Pope Francis After Late Arrival


The Nigerian mission inexplicably messed up the itinerary of President Muhammadu Buhari at the United Nations General Assembly meeting in New York on Friday, TheCable reports. 

The president missed a very important event on Boko Haram and internally displaced persons (IDPs) and was also prevented from meeting with Pope Francis because he was not properly briefed by the Nigerian UN mission staff. The pope delivered a speech at the general assembly on Friday at 10am. Not only was Buhari made to come in late to the meeting because of untidy arrangements, he also took a wrong gate rather than the one reserved for presidents and heads of state. 

He was subsequently prevented from seeing the pope by security operatives because of his late arrival. Buhari came in while other presidents and heads of government had already lined up to shake hands with the pope, and he was prevented by security operatives from joining in.‎ 

Presidency had sought to explain away the missed meeting as not being part of the official events lined up for the president. “The meeting at which Nigeria was reportedly absent was not one of the official events of the United Nations for which President Muhammadu Buhari and his modest delegation are in New York,”

The Church Reports say, Prophet Wale had allegedly approached the prophetess of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Ona Iwa Mimo, located on Otunba Bamidele Street, in the Ikotun area of Lagos State.

Former Lawmaker In Paternity Mess


Shola Olusola Warah, 21, a student of Federal College of Technology,Akure has cried out that his father Honourable Sulyman Warah,immediate past member of Kwara state house of assembly has denied him.

For Shola Olusola Warah, 21, a student of Federal College of Technology,Akure,these are not the best of times. The absence of a fatherly care over the years,didn’t really mean much to him until recently when he was offered admission to College of Technology Akure,in Ondo state and he started mingling with friends and other course mates. 

Shola Olusola Warah, a native of Ilorin in Ilorin West local government area of kwara state, in 
company of his mother Sarah and other members of the family was looking psychologically distraught when they visited Saturday Vanguard office in ilorin last week to narrate their dilemma. But Honourable Sulyman Warah,immediate past member of Kwara state house of assembly ,now married to another woman with four girls still denied that Sola is his biological son even though he admitted that he dated her mother several years ago. 

The pressure being mounted on him at critical moment of his political life,according to him, prompted him to accept to do a DNA test so as to put the case behind him once and for all. Confusion followed when the result did not confirm him as Shola’s father. Hon Sulyman Warah also said he was ready to follow them to carry out another DNA test elsewhere. Shola suspected a strong foul play that his father had used his political influence against them and therefore brought a petition over DNA test carried out by one diagnostic centre in Ilorin which stated that Warah was not his father.

The workers, who spoke across the country, said although Saraki is still on trial and has not been found guilty of the allegations against him, it is morally right for him to vacate his office as Senate President to defend himself. 

The Office of the Attorney General of the Federation is prosecuting Saraki for alleged false declaration of his assets at the Code of Conduct Bureau. Saraki had, last Tuesday, stepped into the dock at the CCT in Abuja, where he was arraigned for false assets declaration charges. He pleaded not guilty to all the 13 charges slammed on him by the CCB and his trial has been scheduled to hold on October 21, 22 and 23.

He Prays Before Raping Me – ISIS Victim



It was an ordeal that nightmares are made of. A 20-year-old Yazidi woman, who says she was held as a sex slave by ISIS, told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an exclusive interview that her captor was a fighter who told her he was from the United States. 


The victim, who asked to be called “Bazi” (not her real name) is now in the U.S. to testify to Congress about her allegations against the American – and to push the FBI to press charges against the man she said went by the name of Abu Abdullah Al Amriki (Abu Abdullah the American). The woman’s story could not be independently verified. The human rights group Hardwired assisted her in going to the U.S. Her captor “was very white,” Bazi told Amanpour in Washington. “He was a little bit taller than me, with a black beard, black hair. I also saw his own family. He had a wife and two children, a son and a daughter.” That family, she said, still lived in the United States; he claimed he was able to visit them several times. He claimed he had been a teacher in America, and showed her pictures of his family, she said.

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, today distributed rams to Muslims in the state, appealing to them to shun politicians whipping religious sentiment.

Distributing the rams in Government House, Fayose said he won’t allow himself to be dragged into playing politics with religion in the State. “I won’t allow anybody to drag me into playing politics with religion. What I am doing today is a demonstration of love and support for the Muslims. I am not that kind of a leader who does things with religious interest.

The Definition of a true woman(The Annie Idibia Example)



In a age and time, feminism movement preach the message that any man that cheats or has a mistress outside his matrimonial home should be kicked out , it is heartwarming to see Annie Idibia standing tall and cozying up to her husband on a live TV inspite of his horrendous past For those who dont know, Tuface has 7 kids from three women and this not withstanding, Annie is Tuface's Rock Of Gibraltar and first love. She is still with him and will be forever.

I used to work for an PR organization that has Annie Idibia as a client so I know some of her stories with Tuface but she ignored all that, chose to stand with her man no matter what the world thinks of her The lesson is simple: Don't allow society, feminist movement or social media dictates to you how to run your marriage. Choose what makes you happy and run with it as a lady.
