    The landlord arrested alongside gang members
     
    A 43-year old landlord, Taoreed Adegbite and father of four has been arrested by men of the Nigeria police in Ogun state for leading a gang of armed robbers to rob his  neighbour, Mr Wale Okeyingbo and robbing him of his vehicle at Oke-Odo Community.
     
    Taoreed was arrested along with his accomplice, Taiwo Raheem, a herbal seller at Oke-Ata area of Abeokuta on Wednesday while trying elope with the vehicle.
     
    According to the victim, Okeyingbo, Taoreed was his close neighbour and friend, who taught him how to drive the same vehicle three years ago.

    “It was about past 3:00am when I heard gunshot from my neighbour’s house and I started praying that they should not come to my house. Before I know it, they were already at my door trying to break in, when they could not come in, they demanded for my car key; so I threw it to them from the window. Then they kept asking for money and I told them I don’t have money and that they should please go.

    “When they left my place, I picked my phone to call my neighbours, so they helped me to call Lafenwa Divisional Police Station. The police then went after them and the vehicle was recovered from them at Oke-Ata and that was where I discovered that the man who led the gang was my neighbour who taught me how to drive with the same car he stole,” he said.

  • [Image: couple-fighting-1.jpg]A man who confessed that he can't cope without s-x has seen his insatiable urge land him in serious trouble. 




    A Grade “C” Customary Court in Iseyin, Oyo State, on Wednesday dissolved a seven-year-old marriage between one Baliki Oke and her husband, Arowolo, over the man’s incessant demand for s-x.

     
    Baliki had approached the court in July seeking dissolution of her marriage to Arowolo over his frequent s-x demand.
     
    She told the court that the union had produced a six-year-old boy.
     
    “My husband wants to kill me with s-x, he demands it more than he does for food, he wants to have s-x with me six times in a day before he gets satisfied.
     
    “Arowolo goes to the farm very early in the morning and would not wait for me to bring his lunch.
     
    “He will come home in the afternoon just to have s-x twice before he goes back to the farm and would still make demands when he returns at night.
     
    “Anytime I try to resist him, he will beat me till I surrender.
     
    “I have decided to quit for the sake of my life, I don’t want to die now, my lord, please dissolve this marriage,’’ she said.
     
    Responding, Arowolo, who did not refute the claims of his estranged wife, told the court that he has a high s-x drive.
     
    “I have worked very hard to solve this problem of incessant urge to no avail. The truth is that I can’t cope with life without s-x, I can’t work, eat or play, s-x is more important to me than anything else in life.
     
    “I have been suffering since she packed out of our house about 10 days ago; I have not been going to work, I have begged her relatives to plead with her on my behalf,” he said.
     
    Arowolo, who urged the court not to dissolve the marriage, also promised that he will check his urge for s-x if she returns.
     
    Delivering judgment, the president of the court, Adelodun Raheem, said that all the efforts of the court to plead with the wife and her relatives to resolve the crisis did not yield a positive result.
     
    Raheem, consequently, dissolved the marriage and granted the custody of their child to Baliki.
     
    He ordered Arowolo to be paying N2,500 weekly to the court’s registrar for the child’s upkeep.

  • Many ministers have turned up for the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting as the 'fear of Osinbajo' hits them[Image: Osinbajo-sui.jpg]

    A report by Vanguard has shown that about 28 ministers are currently in attendance at the weekly Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting presided over by the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo at the Council Chamber Presidential Villa Abuja.
     
    The unprecedented number of ministers at the FEC may not be unconnected with the ‘no nonsense’ stance of the Acting President since he took over the realm of leadership from President Muhammadu Buhari who is on a 10-working day vacation in London, United Kingdom.
     
    As at 10:30am some ministers had arrived at the Council Chamber for the FEC scheduled for 11am and as at the time the Acting President arrived about 28 of the ministers were already seated for the meeting.
     
    After the national anthem, the Minister of State for Education, Anthony Anwukah said the Christian opening prayer, while the Minister of Water Resources, Suleiman Adamu offered the Muslim prayer.
     
    The turn out was unprecedented compared to the past FEC meetings chaired by Osinbajo as Vice President or Acting President.
     
    Recall that Osinbajo had last week Tuesday terminated the appointment of the immediate past Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Lawal Daura and also yesterday (Tuesday), ordered immediate overhaul of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) as well as the probe of operatives that allegedly committed human right abuses on the course of their duty.

    The 12-time best TV Station in Nigeria - Channels TV has been accused of partisan reportage and fake news by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole.
     
    Oshiomhole made the allegations while questioning what he describes as the unfair coverage of Channels TV and other newspapers on the face-off between the leadership of the All Progressives Congress and the principal officers of the National Assembly culminating in the besiegement of the National Assembly complex by operatives of the Directorate of State Security, DSS.
     
    Speaking at a public gathering recently, Oshiomhole accused the private television station of being partisan and unprofessional in its recent reportorial about political events in the country. He explained how the media platform alleged he had a private meeting with senators of the All Progressives Congress at the Aso Drive, Abuja over a planned impeachment of the embattled Senate President Bukola Saraki while he was actually in London, United Kingdom.
     
    "Yesterday morning, I travelled to the UK and I was in London and I saw some stories to the effect that I was attending or even presiding over a meeting at Aso Drive. I thought that this was the handiwork of those social media warriors. You know in the current world information order, one man can post one million stories depending on how active he is. And those who have murdered sleep politically have chosen to hire hundreds of social media young people to post all kinds of untruth and create confusion. Fake News is beginning to become the order of the day in many respects. But I got a little worried when otherwise reputable media houses also joined on the basis of unverified facts carried away by those who have vested interests to report without minimum efforts to establish the facts” he said
     
    “This morning, there was a newscaster or a news headline on Channels TV alleging that I presided over a meeting with senators last night. I will not ask them to retract the news. The way to discredit any media is to put the truth out because the power of the pen is as potent according to the fact it conveys; when that power is recklessly misused, it simply loses value. Fortunately, I wasn't around last night and therefore, I couldn't have held any meeting or participated in any meeting at Aso Drive" he continued.
     
    According to him, he also read some screaming headlines in some newspapers about a purported meeting between him and APC Senators to impeach Saraki. To promised to publish his departure boarding card as well as return boarding card and also the appropriate pages of his international passport to reflect stamps of him being allowed in and out of the United Kingdom.
     
    "It is becoming clear that Channels has chosen to channel one-sided information completely abandoning the tradition that Channels has been known for and for which many of us have been very very proud. Last Sunday, it spent hours or several minutes reporting events in the National Assembly. Confronted with hard facts namely that whereas the PDP senators as led by the PDP leader, Senator Bukola Saraki claimed that there was an attempt to impeach him. Their own video camera showed only PDP Senators being in the house along with hundreds of thugs imported by them. And from what we now know, they were there as early from 6 to 7am and the only senators that were found in the National Assembly premises were all PDP Senators. So if indeed there was an attempt to impeach distinguished Senator Saraki, it can only be assumed on the basis of facts available that it is PDP Senators who were determined to impeach Senator Saraki on that day. It cannot be those who were not present” he added.
     
    The former Nigeria Labour Congress leader went on to explain that after the World Press Conference organized by Saraki, the leadership of the APC also organized a counter-conference to respond to the issues raised but wasn't given fair coverage by Channels TV.
     
    "We also had a press conference which I said was specifically convened a Nigerian press conference, it’s a Nigerian matter to respond to some of the issues raised by the Senate President. Channels also covered that press conference. I would have thought that when the Senate President finished his own version, it was only fair that APC's response was also similarly aired so that the Nigerian viewers can make up their minds. But even our attempts to put our own as advertorial was also declined by Channels TV" Oshiomhole alleged.
     
    He later went on to intimate the general public about the purported 'unreliability' of contents produced by Channels TV especially on political issues across the country.
     
    "I thought I should say this  because the Nigerian people have a right to know who to believe but our recent history has taught us one thing that when a media house consistently becomes the megaphone of a partisan interest, overtime, the public can see through the lies, the half truth and the untruth and for me, it is unfortunate that Channels could degenerate to that level of spreading false information and fake news in matters of serious national importance” he further explained.

    Where is Oshiomole getting all this “I” from? “I will impeach Saraki even with 5 Senators”, ” I will rather die than allow Saraki be Senate President”. Emmmm… Oshiomole is just a party chairman with zero powers as to governance.

    This psychotic Oshiomole has delusions of grandeur. A little Quetiapine or Clozapine administered to him might help him see reality more clearly.

    Party chairmen are not in the same rank and file as Senate President who is THE NUMBER THREE MAN IN NIGERIA. We do not even know the name of party chairmen in the US. They are NOTHING really.

    Anyway, I guess first he has to use his powers to go and convene the Senate right now. I am
    sure he believes he also has that power

    Which great leader uses “I” so much except empty barrels?

    A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Sule Lamido, on Tuesday claimed that Senator Godswill Akpabio defected because he was “afraid”.

    While addressing delegates to next month’s National Convention of the party, Lamido, who is also a presidential aspirant, said that Akpabio defected from the PDP to the APC for “protection”.

    According to him, the APC government showed “Senator Akpabio some files and he became afraid.

    “It is a disgrace for the APC government to give former governor Akpabio the type of reception he was given.

    “It shows that the government is not serious about fighting corruption.”

    He wrote: “I commend @ProfOsinbajo for ordering the investigation of human rights violations by SARS and its overhauling. Let us see how far it goes.

    “I urge him to go a step further by ordering the arrest and prosecution of those that commit ethnic cleansing and genocide against our people.

    “I also urge @ProfOsinbajo to bring to justice those that slaughtered thousands of IPOB youths over the last three years and those that abducted Nnamdi Kanu from his home and murdered his friends, staff, family members and dogs.”

  • A dismissed police officer has allegedly infected some underage girls with the dreaded HIV before committing suicide.
    [Image: Nigeria-Police.jpg]
    File photo: Police officers
     
    According to a report by SaharaReporters, a dismissed Police officer from Cross River State has committed suicide after being accused of defiling and infecting a nine-year-old girl, and five others, with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
     
    According to investigation by the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA), the policeman was dismissed from the force for alleged gross misconduct and detained in a prison in Port Harcourt, and relocated to Bayelsa State. 
     
    Community sources said the incident, which has provoked anger among indigenes of Kolokuma/Opokuma area of the state, led to a search for the officer, but he escaped towards Trofani community in Sagbama Local Government Area, where he was reported to have committed suicide.
     
    A source, who preferred not to be named, revealed that the six victims included a female lover, who had moved to Delta State after a test proved she was HIV positive. 
     
    “Investigation showed that the man escaped from a prison in Port Harcourt sometime last year and embarked on a defilement spree. More than five underage persons were reportedly defiled and infected with HIV," the source stated.
     
    "The nine-year-old girl, names withheld, was defiled recently. The victim told her mother about the act, but the mother refused to listen to her. However, when the girl could not walk properly and was sickly, the mother took her for a laboratory test and discovered that she had not only been defiled but was also HIV positive.


    “We call on the Bayelsa State Commissioner of Health and the FIDA to come to the aid of the victims. They need treatment."
     
    Contacted on the development, spokesman of the Bayelsa Police Command, Asinim Butswat, said though he had heard about the incident, it had not been “officially reported to the command".

  • People living in Lagos are inhabiting the third worst city for humans to live in the world according to the newly released ranking of the 2018 Global Liveability Index released by The Economist Intelligence Unit and World Bank.
    [Image: eko-lagos-1%281%29.jpg] 
    People lineup to board Lagos BRT buses in Lagos used to illustrate the story
     
    Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial nerve center, is the third worst city to live in among 140 cities worldwide, PREMIUM Times reports.
     
    The revelation is according to the Economist Intelligence Unit, EIU’s 2018 ranking of the world’s most liveable cities. The city was ranked 138th of the 140 countries ranked by the EIU.
     
    With a relatively low score of 38.5 per cent, the city was just a little above Syria’s war-torn capital, Damascus, and Bangladesh’s Dhaka. Both cities are hotbeds of violence, destruction and war.
     
    The new ranking saw the Australian capital, Melbourne, lose the title of world’s most liveable city after a seven-year reign after dropping to second by just 0.7 percent. The city was piped to the post by Vienna, which received an overall score of 99.1 percent.
     
    According to the EIU, Austria’s capital’s rise to the top was attributed to increased security scores due to a return to relative stability across much of Europe after high-profile terrorist attacks in recent years.
     
    The annual list assesses stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure in 140 different cities of the world.
     
    On a larger scale, the ranking showed, global liveability has improved for the second year in a row, increasing from 74.8 per cent last year to 75.7 per cent in 2018.
     
    In the new ranking, published Monday, Japan’s Osaka and Tokyo have now moved up into the top ten, coming in third and seventh place respectively. Both cities achieved their highest ranking on the survey this year thanks to a decline in crime rates as well as improvements in public transportation.
     
    According to the report summary, “Osaka stands out especially, having climbed six positions, to third place, over the past six months, closing the gap with Melbourne.


    “It is now separated from the former top-ranked city by a mere 0.7 of a percentage point. Osaka’s improvements in scores for quality and availability of public transportation, as well as a consistent decline in crime rates, have contributed to higher ratings in the infrastructure and stability categories respectively.”
     
    Hamburg and Helsinki, that held tenth and ninth place last year, have dropped out of the top ten, while this year’s ninth place spot went to Copenhagen, which achieved a score of 96.8 per cent.
     
    Canada, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver also performed relatively well, the report said.
     
    The report noted that global business centres tend to be victims of their own success because the ‘big city’ buzz they enjoy could overstretch infrastructure and cause higher crime rates. It noted that New York (57th), London (48th) and Paris (19th), for instance, are all prestigious hubs with numerous recreational activities but they all suffer from higher levels of crime, congestion and public transport problems.
     
    The report showed without much surprise that Syria’s war-torn capital, Damascus, continues to languish at the bottom of the list, with an overall score of 30.7 per cent. It was followed by Bangladesh’s Dhaka and Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial centre.
     
    In 2017, Lagos was ranked the second worst city to live in after Damascus.

    Several members and parties in the coalition that recently teamed up with the PDP to wrest power from the ruling All Progressives Congress had demanded a change of name and logo of the party.
     
    “The PDP remains the only party with well-defined ideology. Between 1999 and now, all the other political parties have changed their names in the quest to wrestle power from the PDP.


    “Only the PDP has retained its name,” Lamido boasted.

    The statement read, “Following persistent complaints and reports on the activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad that border on allegations of human rights violations, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has directed the Inspector General of Police to, with immediate effect, overhaul the management and activities of SARS and ensure that any unit that will emerge from the process, will be intelligence-driven and restricted to the prevention and detection of armed robbery and kidnapping, and apprehension of offenders linked to the stated offences, and nothing more.
     
    “The Acting President has also directed the IGP to ensure that all operatives in the emerging unit conduct their operations in strict adherence to the rule of law and with due regard to International Human Rights Law and the constitutionally guaranteed rights of suspects. The operatives should also bear proper identification anytime they are on duty.
     
    “In the meantime, the Acting President has directed the National Human Rights Commission to set up a special panel that will conduct an investigation of the alleged unlawful activities of SARS in order to afford members of the general public the opportunity to present their grievances with a view to ensuring redress.”

  • Having a very big bum could be appealing to make folks but the 'natural asset' also comes with its own challenges quietly endured by women.
     [Image: chair%20bum.JPG]
     
    These are the silent pains of a woman/lady with a massive bum:
     
    1. Dresses that fit your waistline but pull up at the bottom because of your wide hips and big backside.
     
    2. Taking hours to wear a pair of jeans or trousers that fit easily to your legs but refuse to cover your bum.
     
    3. Walking into a room and men chase you like crazy because all they see is your a**. 
     
    4. They forget that people interact before when they meet for the first time.
     
    5. Struggling to sit down those tiny spaced chairs on a flight, talk less of putting on your seat belt. Sometimes ones bum is so big that your scared of bending down or squatting because anytime you do something gets torn.
     
    6. Price of custom fitted pants or shorts have skyrocketed. Same thing goes for great fitting panties
     
    7. Its uncomfortable to sit on chairs because your your bum keeps spilling out of the side.
     
    8. Your self conscious in church especially because of the men sitting behind you.
     
    9. When you get up, some of them get instant hard-ons! You feel like the devil.
     
    10. Theres the risk of knocking things over without you noticing. Even someones child!!!
     
    11. People recognize you from a distance because of your humongous backside..Your shadow even. (lol…betrayed by the booty).
     
    12. Your leggings become see through because the material becomes overstretched at the back.
     
    13. Walking up stairs when someone is right behind you makes you extremely uncomfortable.
     
    14. You can’t wear mini skirts because your big bakassi always wants to pop out to say hello.
     
    15. Your best friends always want to use your big booty as a pillow irrespective of how many cushions you have at home. Or maybe they want to use it as a table for putting their food or drinks.
     
    16. Your girlfriends feel uncomfortable introducing you to their boyfriends or husbands because they fear you’ll snatch them. 
     
    17. No matter how well you tighten your belt, your underwear always want to make an appearance.
     
    18. Always stand out in group photos. Especially when the photographer says everyone should turn around. 
     
    19. More people want to meet your a** more than they want to meet you.
     
    20. The massive bum has a way of attracting flirty guys who just want to have s*x without any strings attached.

  • A boy who is just 14 years old, has stunned people after declaring his interest to run for office of governor.
    [Image: Ethan.JPG]
    Ethan Sonneborn
     
    Most 14-year-old American schoolboys might be fixated on baseball, chasing girls and dodging their homework. Not Ethan Sonneborn. He's running for governor in Vermont, USA.
     
    The teenager is taking advantage of a quirk in the constitution of the bucolic northeastern state that imposes no age limit on running for governor. Candidates only have to have lived in Vermont for at least four years.
     
    Ethan, happily for his campaign, has lived in the state for 14. He faces a crowded field of adult rivals in Tuesday's Democratic gubernatorial primary.
     
    His website proclaims him a champion for middle- and working-class families, with "the right ideas" on healthcare reform, economic development and education -- never mind that he's still years from graduating high school.
     
    He identifies with the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, which has been increasingly in the ascendant in the United States since the ultimately thwarted run for president by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in 2016.
     
    "I think I'm the candidate who best represents the change we need," he told a televised town hall event earlier this month.
     
    His rivals include Christine Hallquist, running to become America's first transgender governor, James Ehlers, a Navy veteran and environmentalist, and Brenda Siegel, the executive director of a dance festival.
     
    But despite praise for Sonneborn's "maturity" and political awareness, his campaign has attracted calls for Vermont lawmakers to close the loophole.
     
    "I think we should probably take a look at that to be perfectly honest," Republican Governor Phil Scott told reporters when asked if he thought 14-year-olds should be eligible to run.


    "I think you should at least be able to get your driver's license at the time that you become governor."
     
    Scott, 60, has been at the helm of Vermont since 2016 and is running for re-election, facing Keith Stern, who runs a fruits and vegetable business, in the state's gubernatorial Republican primary, also on Tuesday.

  • A man who dragged his father-in-law to a Court sitting at Magajin Gari area of Kaduna on Tuesday, has opened up on the alleged abduction of his wife.

    A 35-year-old man, Haruna Ali, on Tuesday sued his father-in-law, Adamu Mai-Takaima, at a Sharia Court sitting at Magajin Gari, Kaduna, over alleged abduction of his wife.
     
    The complainant told the court that his wife, Hadiza Haruna, had left her matrimonial home for her parent’s house without his permission.
     
    He alleged that for 11 months, his wife had been living with her parent under the guise of being ill.
     
    ”I want the court to assist me in getting back my wife and I promise to take care of whatever disease she is suffering from,” he pleaded.
     
    The defendant on his part had told the court that his daughter had suffered two miscarriages within 11 months, a situation that led to her contracting Vesico Virginal Festula (VVF).
     
    “My daughter came back home due to a miscarriage she had. She spent five months with me and her husband never showed up.
     
    “I personally took her back to her matrimonial home but I later heard that her condition had deteriorated as she couldn’t control her urine,” he explained.
     
    Mr Mai-Takalma, who claimed his daughter sought her husband’s permission before moving into her parent’s house, added that she was not ready to return to her matrimonial home yet.
     
    He told the court that since she was still under medication, “my daughter’s health is more important than her marriage”.
     
    The case was first heard on July 16 by the judge, Musa Sa’ad, who ordered that Hadiza’s medical result be presented to the court today.
     
    On examination of the result, the judge ordered a change of hospital, where she could be catered for by a specialist on VVF.
     
    The judge further ordered the complainant to take full responsibility for the medical bill.
     
    ”The court has changed the hospital you admitted your daughter to to another hospital in Kaduna, where there are specialists who attend to people with a problem similar to your daughter’s.
     
    ”You will come back to court on Sept. 11 with results from the hospital for final ruling,” the judge said.

  • Mass graves where members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) reportedly murdered by the Nigeria army have been recovered.

    IPOB members
     
    The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) says it has discovered a mass grave of its members who were allegedly killed during the military operation tagged Operation Python Dance II.
     
    This was made public by the group in a statement by Emma Powerful, Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB. He stated that the discovery would drive home the horror of Operation Python Dance and why all those who participated in its instigation and execution should not go unpunished.
     
    The group said it discovered the grave in Obiawom village of Ogwe Autonomous Community in Asa Ukwa West LGA of Abia State, adding that its intelligence unit discovered the grave, which it described as horrific and gruesome.
     
    Part of the statement read, “If anything, this cold blooded execution and unceremonious dumping of dead bodies in the forest by Fulani soldiers in Obiawom village in Ukwa West under the control of Abia State governor Okezie Ikpeazu is ample justification for the recent decision of IPOB to disengage from any further talks with Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors.”
     
    The group said had the same number of murdered victims been discovered in any Islamic country, region or part of the world, the International Criminal Court (ICC), United Nations, Britain, USA and world media would be up in arms demanding explanation and holding the perpetrators accountable.
     
    “Because these events are happening to Biafrans in Nigeria; where an Islamic government, along with her security operatives staffed by Fulani officers are aiding and protecting Hausa Fulani herdsmen and their kinsmen in the army from the consequences of the worst form of ethnically motivated genocide presently in Africa, the world remains deaf to the cries of IPOB,” it said.
     
    The pro-Biafra group called for the designation of the site of the mass grave and the site of the decomposed bodies as international crime scene and be promptly investigated.
     
    It said, “Should the United Nations, ICC, USA and European Union fail to act on this gruesome discovery of mass grave, we would conclude that there exists a credible bias and conspiracy to exterminate and Islamise Biafra by the pro-Islamic international community.”
     
    IPOB noted that the anniversary of the killing of its members during the invasion of its leader’s house in Afara Ukwu, Umuahia during Operation Python Dance on September 14, 2017 was fast approaching.
     
    It called on Igbo governors, the global Christian community, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and other reputable and relevant human rights organisations around the world, to prevail on the International Criminal Court, the Nigeria Government and her security operatives to release remaining dead bodies of IPOB members in their custody.

  • The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has been accused of being used by APC to chase away investors.
    [Image: EFCC-at-work-480x320.jpg]
    EFCC
     
    The Akwa Ibom State Government has raised the alarm that the activities of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), if not checked would scare away foreign investors from Nigeria.
     
    Speaking to the public, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Charles Udoh while speaking in Uyo, yesterday, said, “if the EFCC witch-hunt is allowed to continue, it would work against the growth of the nation.”
     
    According to him, if the anti-graft agency was continually used by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government as an attack tool against political opponents, investors would abandon Nigeria due to a feeling of insecurity.
     
    He said, “it is the height of impunity and insensitivity for an agency of the federal government to have frozen the account of a state government without any prior notice or communication.


    “Such would never have occurred if the federal government had any iota of concern about the people of Akwa Ibom State, especially the public servants whose means of livelihood they shut.”
     
    Reacting to recent claims by the agency that N1.4 billion was traced to 11 accounts belonging to the Akwa Ibom Government, Udoh declared such as false, maintaining that the agency had no valid reason for taking such step without any prior notice or communication.

    The woman attacked by an ex-lover
     
    A woman identified as Nkiru Okoye has been left in a state of excrutiating pain after she was allegedly attacked by her ex-lover in Anambra state. 
     
    Okoye who had been formerly married, but broke up with her spouse, before falling in love with her ex-lover had been having problem with him.
     
    Trouble started for the duo due to the age of the ex-lover.
     
    It was gathered that the young man in question is said to be younger than her, hence his family insisted that their son would never marry an older lady. The lady’s family also concurred, but the young man wouldn’t give up, it was alleged.
     
    According to Tobenna Obiano who shared the photos on social media, things got so bad when the lady insisted that they must path ways to respect their families and their excuse of age. But the young man insisted that if he doesn’t end up with the lady, no one else would have her.
     
    [Image: acid-anambra1.jpg]
     
    It was alleged that he had once attacked her – the man had once sneaked into her room at night and tried to strangle her. Neighbours rescued her, but ignorantly, she never made any formal report either to the local vigilante or to the police.
     
    After that, the young man sneaked in through the back door, and saw as his supposed girlfriend was about unlocking her door, he poured her a bowl of raw acid on her running down towards from her neck region, ear, back section and breast.
     
    He poured a second one again on her, extending from her back down to all-over her buttocks and even towards her laps.
     
    The lady has since been transferred from a hospital in Awka to an Orthopedic hospital in Enugu state, where she’s currently being treated.

    [Image: shekau.jpg]
    Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau
     
    The Nigeria Army on Tuesday, said it had uncovered a facebook and other social media accounts allegedly used by a faction of the Boko Haram group to recruit new members.
     
    Maj. Murtala Usman, Artillary Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, who disclosed this while speaking at the ongoing Nigerian Army Combat Support Training Week in Maiduguri, said the social media accounts had 2,000 followers.
     
    Usman said that insurgents from the Albarnawi faction of the Boko Haram group were recruiting new members on social media platforms like facebook, Watssap, SnapChat, Instagram and the Youtube.
     
    He said the army discovered this, while interrogating a “highly placed Boko Haram commander known as Malu-Mamman Barde’’, who was tracked and apprehended 40km South of Rann area in Kala-Balge Locl Government Area of Borno.
     
    “Barde is among the most wanted Boko Haram suspect that had committed so many atrocities against humanity.


    “Through the suspect’s mobile phone, we found several videos soliciting finance for the group. We also found offensive some other videos where Barde was seen preaching Jihad and the ideology of the group.


    “Most of Barde’s pictures were that of Abu-Mosad Albarnawi and other Boko Haram fighter posing with Anti-Air craft guns, rockets and Boko Haram flag,’’ he said.
     
    Earlier speaking, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai said that the training was to draw up strategies for various military operations across the country.
     
    Burutai was represented by the Commander of Training and Doctrine, Maj.-Gen. Abubakar Salihu.
     
    He added that the training was designed to adopt new strategies to combat insecurity in the country through brain storming and reviewing of operations.


    “The nation faces series of security challenges, including Boko Haram insurgency, farmers/herders crisis, kidnapping, armed robbery, banditry and violence, among others.
     
    Maj.-Gen. Abubabkar Tarfa, the Corp Commander Artillery, said the week-long training was a veritable platform for generating ideas for the combat arms.
     
    The theme of the training was “Strengthening Combat Support Arms Cooperation in Contemporary Security Challenges.’’
     
    Tarfa said it was designed to generate strategies for confronting current security challenges in the country.

  • A community in Abia state is in shock after several dead bodies were found inside a forest in the area.
    [Image: Dead-hand.jpg]
     File photo used only for illustrative purpose
     
    According to a report by The Nation, the people of Obiawon village in Ogwe autonomous community, Asa in Ukwa West Local Government Area of Abia State are said to be living in palpable fears following the discovery of corpses of yet-to-be identified persons dumped in a forest in the village.
     
    While the people are said to also fear arrest of innocent indigenes by members of security agencies who have reportedly been parading the community since the community members discovered the corpses, they are however calling on authorities concerned to ensure that there won’t be any outbreak of disease in the agrarian community.
     
    Attempts by The Nation reporter who visited the community with the help of a guide to visit the location where the bodies of the victims were dumped were unsuccessful as reports have it that personnel of security agencies in the area have been patrolling on the routes leading to the forest.
     
    Some of the community members who spoke anonymously told our reporter that apart] from the bodies of about four persons found in a section of the forest, bodies of over 30 persons were spotted dumped in a ditch in another section of the forest.
     
    A source who claimed to have seen the said 30 corpses said that they had started decomposing as indications show that they might have been dumped in the last two weeks by yet-to- be known persons.
     
    “We are not at war with any community. All I can tell you is that our people are farmers and our business is farming. We were shocked when we saw the bodies in a forest in the village and one wonders who were those that took us unawares to come into our village to dump these bodies?


    “We are confused, really over this development. Something urgent should be done to avert any outbreak of disease in our community.”
     
    Meanwhile, the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in a release through its spokesman, Emma Powerful on Tuesday condemned the killing and dumping of the body of the deceased persons in Abia community.
     
    Powerful in the release claimed that the bodies of the deceased persons were members of the pro-Biafra group who were arrested and detained in various army camps across the state during the Operation Python Dance II in the southeast and called on international bodies to investigate the killing and dumping of the bodies with the aim of unraveling those behind the dastard act.
     
    “The site of these decomposed bodies should be designated as an international crime scene and promptly investigated.


    “Should the United Nations, ICC, USA and European Union fail to act on this gruesome discovery of mass grave of Biafrans in Ukwa Ngwa, Abia State, we would conclude that there exists a credible bias and conspiracy to exterminate and Islamise Biafra by the pro-Islamic international community.

    “As we draw near to the anniversary of the murderous invasion of Afaraukwu on the 14th of September 2017, we once again call on Igbo governors, the global Christian community, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and other reputable and relevant human rights organisations around the world, to prevail upon the International Criminal Court, the Nigeria Government and her security operatives to release the remaining dead bodies of Biafrans in their custody since last year.


    “An international panel of enquiry must be constituted, as a matter of urgency to investigate the atrocities of this Buhari regime against innocent populations in Nigeria and Biafra in particular,” part of the release read.
     
    Efforts to reach the spokesman of the 14Brigade Command Headquarters, Ohafia, Major Oyegoke Gbadamosi over the allegation by the IPOB failed as his number could not be reached, but a source at the command who pleaded not to be mentioned, however debunked allegation, stating that it is the figment of the Pro-Biafra group who tries to seek attention whenever it seems that no one is giving them attention.

  • An 11-year-old boy hacked into a replica website used by the Florida Secretary of State to report election results and changed the election results once he gained access into the site.

    An 11-year-old boy managed to hack into a replica of Florida’s election results website in 10 minutes and change names and tallies during a hackers convention, organizers said, stoking concerns about security ahead of nationwide votes.
     
    The boy was the quickest of 35 children, ages 6 to 17, who all eventually hacked into copies of the websites of six swing states during the three-day Def Con security convention over the weekend, the event said on Twitter on Tuesday.
     
    The event was meant to test the strength of U.S. election infrastructure and details of the vulnerabilities would be passed onto the states, it added.
     
    The National Association of Secretaries of State - who are responsible for tallying votes - said it welcomed the convention’s efforts. But it said the actual systems used by states would have additional protections.
     
    “It would be extremely difficult to replicate these systems since many states utilize unique networks and custom-built databases with new and updated security protocols,” the association said.

    — DEFCON VotingVillage (@VotingVillageDC) August 11, 2018
    The hacking demonstration came as concerns swirl about election system vulnerabilities before mid-term state and federal elections.
     
    U.S President Donald Trump’s national security team warned two weeks ago that Russia had launched “pervasive” efforts to interfere in the November polls.
     
    Participants at the convention changed party names and added as many as 12 billion votes to candidates, the event said.
     
    “Candidate names were changed to ‘Bob Da Builder’ and ‘Richard Nixon’s head’,” the convention tweeted.
     
    The convention linked to what it said was the Twitter account of the winning boy - named there as Emmett Brewer from Austin, Texas.
     
    A screenshot posted on the account showed he had managed to change the name of the winning candidate on the replica Florida website to his own and gave himself billions of votes.
     
    The convention’s “Voting Village” also aimed to expose security issues in other systems such as digital poll books and memory-card readers.
