The family of I Wayan Merta, who is also known as Ki Galang Pamungkas, have confirmed his death but said it was unrelated to the insecticide stunt.



In a video that went viral, the guru from Bali, Indonesia, was seen spraying Baygon insecticide into his mouth.



Concerned fans feared news of his death on Sunday, May 2, was the result of digesting the toxic chemicals in the insecticide but Ki Galang's brother, I Nyoman Saputra, dismissed their claims.



Saputra told local media outlets: "As his brother, I am dismissing [rumors] that Ki Galang died because of insecticide. He died because of a heart attack.



"He died on May 2, 2021 at 6:15 a.m."



Ki Galang built a reputation as a spiritual guru in Bali but it was only when a video of him ingesting insecticide went viral that he found fame,



His brother Saputra explained he died at a local hospital in Jimbaran, Bali, and insisted doctors had produced a medical record proving his cause of death was due to a heart attack.

Three crossdressers beaten and forced to strip by men in Benin Republic http://nairaplace.com//3474/three-crossdressers-beaten-and-forced-to-strip-by-men-in-benin-republic.html


The men attacked the crossdresser with bottles then humiliated them by forcing them to strip naked.



The incident occurred on Saturday, May 1, at Sunset Bar in Cotonou, Benin.



The violence was captured on cell phone video and uploaded to social media.



It caught the attention of an NGO and LGBT+ advocacy group Hirondelle Club Benin and they shared it on Twitter to spread awareness about violence against transgenders.



The video caption reads: "We have just denounced an umpteenth aggression against people LGBTQi in Benin a few days before the celebration of May 17. We condemn these acts with the last rigor. We will come back for more details."



In the video, the men are seen harassing the crossdressers. The men forced them to take off their clothes while also slapping them and throwing objects at them.



One of the victims told The Observers that the attack was planned.



One of the victims said: "My man knew I was transgender and asked me to invite my transgender friends. When we arrived, he asked me to go outside.



"Once we managed to get outside to help our friend, they began attacking the three of us. There were about 200 men there, and they forced us to strip naked while they laughed and filmed up. It was humiliating."



The victims were able to take shelter within Hirondelle Club Benin. But they said the "whole nation", including "our families and bosses", viewed the video of the attack after it went viral on social media.



"We'll never be able to find a job again," one of the victims said. "Everyone here is against us. Even young children in the street have been [pointing] fingers at us."



No arrests have been made.]]>

ISIS and Al-Qaeda planning to penetrate Southern Nigeria, US warns http://nairaplace.com//3473/isis-and-al-qaeda-planning-to-penetrate-southern-nigeria-us-warns.html


The US also said Al-Qaeda has started penetrating the north-western part of Nigeria.



In a media briefing seen by TheCable, Dagvin Anderson, Commander of the US special operations command, Africa, said Al-Qaeda is also expanding to other parts of West Africa.



Anderson said the US will continue to partner with Nigeria in sharing intelligence.



"We have engaged with Nigeria and continue to engage with them in intel sharing and in understanding what these violent extremists are doing," he said.



"And that has been absolutely critical to their engagements up in the Borno state and into an emerging area of northwest Nigeria that we’re seeing al-Qaeda starting to make some inroads in.



"So, this intelligence sharing is absolutely vital and we stay fully engaged with the government of Nigeria to provide them with an understanding of what these terrorists are doing, what Boko Haram is doing, what ISIS-West Africa is doing, and how ISIS and al-Qaeda are looking to expand further south into the littoral areas."



Anderson added that for international efforts to yield desired results in the fight against terrorism in Nigeria, the government must take the lead.



"When it comes to Nigeria in general, Nigeria, obviously, is a critical nation to West Africa. It is a critical nation and we realise that Nigeria is a lynchpin," he said.

Man convicted of murdering and eating his mother after cutting her up into 1,000 pieces http://nairaplace.com//3470/man-convicted-of-murdering-and-eating-his-mother-after-cutting-her-up-into-1-000-pieces.html


Alberto Sanchez Gomez, 28, was branded the cannibal killer of Ventas, the area of Madrid where he lived with his mother Maria Soledad Gomez after his arrest.


On Wednesday, May 5, a jury found him guilty of strangling the 68-year-old after a row. He dismembered her body before eating part of her remains over the next fortnight, Mail Online reported.

The jurors, six women, and three men, also dismissed Sanchez Gomez's claims he was experiencing a 'psychotic episode' when he murdered and dismembered his mother.


State prosecutors demanded a 15 year and five-month prison sentence for Mr. Alberto if convicted of homicide and desecration of a human corpse when his two-week murder trial started on April 19 at Madrid's Audiencia Provincial court.

The judge will now decide how long he should be jailed for in the next few days.


Sanchez Gomez told police who arrested him at their flat in Madrid on February 21, 2019, that he had been eating his mum 'bit by bit' with his pet dog.


Detectives found parts of tragic Soledad's remains in Tupperware containers in their fridge and bones in drawers around the family home, an apartment near the Spanish capital's famous Las Ventas bullring.


Her head, hands, and heart were found on her bed with local reports disclosing at the time that her body had been cut up into more than 1,000 tiny pieces.


Officers who got him to open the door of the apartment they shared are said to have received the response: 'Yes, my mother is in here, dead.'


The alarm was raised by a worried friend of Soledad's who told the authorities she hadn't seen her for a month.


A prosecution indictment submitted to the court ahead of the trial revealed that the cannibal killer used a carpenter's saw and two kitchen knives to cut up his mum's body.


Sanchez, whose dad died when he was 15, claimed in court at the start of his murder trial he had heard 'hidden messages' when he watched TV and voices telling him: 'Kill your mum.'


He reportedly told Madrid's Audiencia Provincial court that the voices were those of neighbours, acquaintances, and celebrities. But he insisted he didn't remember cutting up his mum or eating her remains as he told police when they went to the murder scene.



During a final address to the court last Friday he insisted: 'I'm very repentant. I suffer anxiety from the moment I wake up.



'I think of my mum and I'm absolutely heartbroken.'


Jurors heard the convicted killer, who regularly consumed drugs and alcohol, had been arrested 12 times for mistreating his mum before killing her.


A police officer who gave evidence during the trial said: 'He began to tell us as he was being transferred to a police station that the he had strangled her from behind.



'He also said he had eaten parts of her body, some cooked and some raw, and had given some pieces to the dog.'

Acting spokesperson of the State Police Command, DSP Bright Odafe, who confirmed the development in a statement on Thursday, May 6, said the teen is in the custody of the police at Oghara, Ethiope West.



"Missing Treasure Ofuya has been found in Oghara, she is currently with the police and will be reunited with her family soon,” he stated.

It was gathered that the girl left her school, New Era Model School Jakpa Road Effurun, on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, but did not return home following a misunderstanding she had with her mother the previous day. All efforts made to her whereabouts proved abortive.



Speaking with journalists in Warri on Monday, her mother, Faith, said they both had a misunderstanding the previous evening over the misuse of her phone.



"Treasure went to school on Wednesday although we had a little issue on Tuesday evening. I seized her phone because she was not supposed to take it to school and she was not supposed to have a SIM card. But we noticed that she had a SIM card. I was angry with her and I seized the phone," Mrs Ofuya said.



"On Wednesday, she bathed and went to school at New Era, Jakpa Road. After school, she used to attend a lesson close by, just across the Jakpa Road. But she did not get to the lesson that day. From school, she just disappeared" she added. ]]>

George Keywood and his woman Sienna have a baby boy, Oliver together but she has come out to reveal that they get trolled over their relationship because of their weight difference.

Speaking of how they met, Sienna says: “Basically how we met, we talked on instagram for like six months and then we basically got together.


“I moved to the UK from Australia, that’s the short version anyway.”



Meanwhile George claims that Sienna has 'always liked a fatty' and that slim guys do not stand a chance with her.


Despite Sienna being regularly accused of being a golddigger, George says he doesn't pay trolls any attention.

He says: “She’s always liked the fatties way long before I came into her sights. Just to clear things up, she’s always liked fat boys.


“Unlucky for all you skinny boys you’ve got no chance.”



Sienna added: “I like them chunky.”


Some fans have described them a “beautiful couple.”


One wrote: “I don’t see what the obsession is over the fact that he’s a big man and you’re gorgeous.

Melinda Gates reportedly rented $132,000-a-night private island to avoid the media http://nairaplace.com//3465/melinda-gates-reportedly-rented-132-000-a-night-private-island-to-avoid-the-media.html


Earlier this week, the billionaire couple announced their decision to end their marriage, writing in a joint statement at the time: “After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage.”



Melinda actually filed papers in court confirming that the marriage was “irretrievably broken.”



However, sources told TMZ that the couple had actually planned to make the announcement in March, at which point Melinda then rented Calivigny Island in Grenada to escape media scrutiny.

According to the outlet’s sources, the plan was for Melinda and the couple’s three children, as well as some family members, to stay on the island, which Bill was reportedly not invited to.



Calivigny is considered to be one of the most exclusive private islands in the world

The island's Beach House residence offers 10 luxury suites and the master bedroom has its own jacuzzi room. The 80-acre island is reached by a five-minute boat ride from Grenada.

On why the couple delayed the news of their separation, the sources told TMZ that lawyers for both Bill and Melinda were trying to “hash out a divorce settlement,” but that Melinda decided to go to anyway.



Sources also said that the family has taken Melinda’s side for the most part and that it is not a “friendly split”.



On the day they announced their divorce, the Microsoft founder’s investment firm transferred $1.8bn in stock to his estranged wife, according to Bloomberg.



The Microsoft co-founder turned philanthropist and his wife built up a combined $124bn (£89bn) fortune together, making them among the five richest couples in the world.]]>

Men with bigger noses have bigger penises, scientists say http://nairaplace.com//3464/men-with-bigger-noses-have-bigger-penises-scientists-say-.html


The new scientific study measured the size of 126 male corpses’ reproductive organs to see if there was any relation between the two. The researchers found a link between nose size and ‘stretched penile length.’



According to the study, those with larger noses had a ‘stretched penile length’ of at least 5.3 inches (13.42cm) and those with smaller ones had a penis measuring 4.1 inches (10.37cm) when erect - meaning that a bigger nose typically meant a bigger penis.



Published in Basic and Clinical Andrology, scientists from the Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine in Japan did not examine why this link exists but instead focused on the connection between the dimensions of nose and penis sizes.



The researchers said: “The fact that nose size is related to stretched penile length indicates that penile length may not be determined by age, height or bodyweight but has already been determined before birth.”



The Japanese researchers recorded their height, weight, soft penis length, penile circumference, right and left testicular weights, as well as prostate weight.



They also pulled the penis up vertically as far as it would go was done and measured it in an effort to replicate the erect penile length. The Nose measurements studied the distance between a person’s eyes to where the nostril starts.



The procedures resulted in findings that men with noses smaller than 1.8 inches had penises up to 4.1 inches in length.



Those with a sniffer 22 percent bigger, measuring 2.2 inches long, tended to have larger penises measuring 5.3 inches.



For those with noses in the middle of this range, 4.5 inches was found to be the average penis size.



In their published study, the researchers write: “This study is the first to demonstrate the relationship between stretched penile length and nose size but is limited in Japanese male cadavers, and the reason why stretched penile length and nose size are related is still unclear.



“Therefore, we consider it an interesting subject to pursue from now on.”]]>

Tottenham to pay Jose Mourinho £10m next season twice as much as his new club Roma http://nairaplace.com//3462/tottenham-to-pay-jose-mourinho-10m-next-season-twice-as-much-as-his-new-club-roma.html


Mourinho landed a new job just 15 days after being sacked by Tottenham, signing a three-year deal with the Italians worth £5m a year — compared to the annual £15m he was getting at Spurs.


But as part of his severance package he entered into with Tottenham, the club will pay him the shortfall in salary if he took another post on lower wages before the end of his contract next summer.


That means when Mourinho takes over at the Stadio Olimpico this summer he will receive £5m from Roma and, for next season only, £10m from Tottenham.


But Spurs see it as a financial victory, as they have saved £5m on what they would have paid him had he not accepted another job.


The ex-Porto, Chelsea, Inter, Real Madrid and Manchester United boss wants to show he is not at fault for his Tottenham sack.


He also reportedly wants to show that he has not been affected by his shock departure after just 17 months in charge.]]>

Facebook user, Jackson who shared photos of the young man on his page said that the Godfrey Okoye University Enugu and Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) graduate, died on Sunday, May 2.

Photos posted on his Facebook page shows that late Jerry was a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG)



According to Jackson, after playing the guitar like never before, Jerry laid down at the altar for the worship session. After the session, everyone stood up except the deceased. They lifted him only to find out that he was dead.



Jackson wrote;

"He wasn't sick. His mum said he has gone to be with the lord that God has called him, that he died on the altar while worshipping God, that the way he played yesterday(The Bass Guitar) he has never played like that before that he Knelt down worshipping and later lay down till after the worship everyone was up but he was still there before they came to raise him up and found out he's gone 2 rest with the Lord.

"He slumped and died in church. Jerry was such an upright Christian who lived a life worthy of emulation. I want to quickly remind us of the scripture that says...we should not mourn like the people of the world when a believer dies. Jerry has gone to be with the Lord." he said.

Those killed by kidnappers and bandits will go to paradise – Deputy Chief Imam http://nairaplace.com//3459/those-killed-by-kidnappers-and-bandits-will-go-to-paradise-deputy-chief-imam-.html


Maqari reportedly said this during Ramadan’s tafsir in Abuja. Stressing that Islam forbids Muslims to pay money as ransom to enemies they are at war with, the Islamic cleric stated that the money will continue to be used by criminals as long as it is paid.



He said refusing to meet the demands of kidnappers would inevitably turn them into losers who wasted their money to feed the captive, wasted their bullets in killing them and wasted their time, he asserted.

“But he (the criminal) has been made aware that the money is never going to be paid and the one who is killed (the victim) is going to paradise,” he said.



He added;



“Since Allah (SWT) has forbidden the payment of money to an enemy who is at war with you, in order not to empower them to continue to fight you, then contributing money as ransom for the release of kidnapped persons, is haram (prohibited).

“But he (the criminal) has been made aware that the money is never going to be paid and the one who is killed (the victim) is going to paradise.

“But as long as people will continue to give a ransom to secure the release of their loved ones, the recipients of the money will continue to use.”]]>

Doctor suspended for 'squeezing patient's nipple' during intimate medical examination http://nairaplace.com//3457/doctor-suspended-for-squeezing-patient-s-nipple-during-intimate-medical-examination.html

A misconduct panel was reportedly told that Dr. Abul Murshid, 50, fondled the woman's left breast without explanation after she attended Guy's Urgent Care Centre in Central London complaining of chest pains.


Murshid also exchanged numbers with the woman before sending her a WhatsApp message after the examination saying: 'Hi. One small reminder please Keep a record of all symps.'


He was later reported to the General Medical Council after the woman spoke to her mother about the encounter.


She said she had felt 'uncomfortable' during the examination and claimed the doctor had 'insisted' on swapping phone numbers with her and informed her of the days when he would be working.


At the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service, Murshid, from Wilmslow, Cheshire, was found guilty of various misconduct charges but was cleared of sexually motivated behaviour.



He was suspended from practise for eight months.


The Manchester hearing was told the incident occurred in 2019 after Dr. Murshid who had worked as a Registrar in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in a number of London hospitals between 2008 and 2012 began working at Guys in the Urgent Care Centre.


In a statement, the female patient said: 'Dr. Murshid asked me to expose my chest area so that he could carry out an examination.


'I remember quite clearly that he did not offer me a chaperone which I would have expected considering this was an examination of a private part of the body.



'I was wearing a sports top at the time so I pulled this above my breasts to expose them so that Dr. Murshid could examine my chest.'


She added: 'He was poking around my chest and asking me to cough to try and localise the pain which seemed perfectly normal until out of nowhere he squeezed my nipple which was so uncomfortable.'


'As I was complaining of chest pain I was expecting a regular chest or cardio examination... but instead, Dr. Murshid carried out a breast examination and it was more of a feeling up than an examination.


'When he was asking me to cough he was poking all around and pressing down on my breasts with his hand then at the end Dr. Murshid squeezed my left nipple.


'He did not make any comments whilst he did this and did not explain before or after squeezing my nipple why this was being done or why it was necessary.'


Murshid initially claimed Patient A's complaint was 'a pure reaction to take revenge to punish' but has since apologized and attended courses of maintaining professional boundaries.



In a statement, he said: 'I recall asking her to cough, whilst I palpated along the left side of her chest. In palpating her chest wall, I inevitably touched her breast tissue due to the anatomy of the area.


'I was palpating the area where she told me she had pain, but I did not perform a breast examination as such and I did not squeeze her nipple.


'I do recall asking whether she would like a chaperone for the examination. There were, from memory, a couple of male nurses on duty that night and the only female member of staff was one of the other doctors, who was busy seeing another patient.


'I gave her the option of waiting, but she declined as she had already been waiting for a long time and had had no sleep.'


In a report on the incident, a colleague of Murshid said: 'Exposure of the chest is necessary to perform a comprehensive examination but a chaperone should have been offered by Dr. Murshid.


'A breast examination was also not clinically indicated by the presenting history and the manner in which it is described as being carried out is not appropriate.'


The doctor's lawyer Oliver Williamson said the tribunal proceedings had been a 'continued learning experience' and described the event as 'a single isolated incident'.


She added: 'He is remorseful and full of regret for his actions, as well as the impact that they have had.'



Finding the doctor's fitness to practise impaired MPTS chairman Nicholas Flanagan told the hearing: 'The tribunal was concerned Dr. Murshid did not consider the need to respect Patient A's dignity and privacy throughout the examination, as her breasts were exposed and it considered that Dr Murshid failed to act appropriately.


'Dr. Murshid seems unaware that an intimate examination is defined by the patient and not the doctor or the examination to be undertaken.


'The Tribunal, therefore, remains troubled with Dr. Murshid's understanding regarding intimate examinations, as well as the preparation and sensitivity required.


'But it is more likely that Dr. Murshid had performed the examination through a failure to fully appreciate Patient A's history and symptoms, rather than to obtain sexual gratification or in pursuit of a sexual relationship.



'The tribunal is satisfied the doctor has insight and does not pose a significant risk of repeating behaviour.'

Security scare as two intruders scale fence at Queen Elizabeth's Windsor estate http://nairaplace.com//3453/security-scare-as-two-intruders-scale-fence-at-queen-elizabeth-s-windsor-estate.html


A man, 31, and his 29-year-old girlfriend entered the Royal Lodge grounds, in Windsor Great Park, last Sunday, April 25, according to the Sun.



The Queen’s son, Prince Andrew, officially lives at the lodge and was said to be there at the time of the breach.



Queen Elizabeth II, 95, rides her horses, walks her dogs and attends the church on the grounds.



The area was breached just over a week after her husband Prince Philip’s funeral.



A source said: "This is an astonishing lapse. Everyone was on high alert after the first intruder, now this happens. Heads could roll."



Police confirmed they responded to a report of two people on the lodge grounds. They arrested the man and woman and took them to Maidenhead police station. The couple have been released on bail.



Police said in a statement: "Thames Valley Police was called to reports of two trespassers in the grounds of the Royal Lodge at Windsor Great Park on Sunday afternoon.



"Two people, a 29-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man, both from London, were arrested on suspicion of being found in or upon enclosed premises and have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.



"There was no risk to any individual on the site."



The incident came just a few weeks after Royal Lodge security let a 44-year-old woman in after she claimed to be engaged to Prince Andrew.



On April 19 after wandering in the grounds for 20 minutes she went into the building, where the Duke of York was at home.



After she asked a member of staff where he was, she was eventually arrested and then sectioned under the Mental Health Act.



She had insisted that she was engaged to Prince Andrew and lived there, telling police that her name was Irene Windsor, the Sun reported.]]>

Woman, 39, 'killed and partially eaten' by bear as she walked dogs http://nairaplace.com//3452/woman-39-killed-and-partially-eaten-by-bear-as-she-walked-dogs.html


The woman, 39, was found dead off a highway near the city of Durango in Colorado, US.



Authorities said there were "signs of consumption" on her body after it was discovered on Friday night, April 29.



Her boyfriend told officials she had gone walking with her two dogs earlier in the day.



The last time she spoke to him was late on Friday morning, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW).



Her boyfriend, who has not been named, returned home at 8.30pm and found the two dogs outside their home.



But his girlfriend, who has also not been named, was missing so he started searching for her.



He eventually found the body at around 9.30pm and then called emergency services to report the incident.



Wildlife officials called in a dog team to search the area and they soon found a female black bear with two cubs nearby.



The bears were killed and taken to a laboratory for a necropsy.



DNA evidence from the animals and the scene will be sent for testing in a forensic lab as well.

Cory Chick, the southwest region manager of the CPW, said: "Bear attacks are extremely rare.



"This is a tragic event and a sad reminder that bears are wild and potentially dangerous.



"Out of an abundance of caution, the bears were removed for public safety.



"We ask the public to report any encounter with an aggressive bear to CPW."



Officials asked people to avoid the area as they probed it for evidence.



Authorities say they have received a number of reports in the area of bear sightings during the last few weeks.]]>

The media must be sensitive to Nigeria's current situation - Buhari http://nairaplace.com//3451/the-media-must-be-sensitive-to-nigeria-s-current-situation-buhari.html


Buhari in a statement issued on Sunday May 2 by his spokesman Femi Adesina ahead of the World Press Freedom day on May 3, said the media should not encourage incendiary words and actions that could further hurt our unity in diversity.



The President also pledged greater cooperation with the media to discharge its duties, in line with the theme of this year’s World Press Freedom Day, ‘Information as a Public Good.’



He said;



“The media must be sensitive to what we are going through as a country, and anything that would exacerbate the situation, and further inflame passions and emotions, should be avoided.

“The media needs to ensure that while informing, educating, entertaining and setting agenda for public discourse, it does not encourage incendiary words and actions that could further hurt our unity in diversity.

“Licentious freedom, the President says, is different from freedom with responsibility, and charges the Nigerian media to embrace the latter, rather than the former.

“He charges those who manage information for government to do everything in the public interest, while also encouraging the media to use the Freedom of Information Act available to make its jobs easier.

“The President submits that it is very vital to have access to reliable information in an era of misinformation, disinformation and hate speech, all to cause discord in society.”]]>

Police officer slashed in face with bottle during protests by Man United fans (photos) http://nairaplace.com//3450/police-officer-slashed-in-face-with-bottle-during-protests-by-man-united-fans-photos-.html

The Red Devils were due to face Liverpool in the Premier League but the game was postponed after the fan protests turned bloody.

The policeman suffered a ‘significant slash wound’ to his face and required emergency hospital treatment, police said.


Flares were let off and bottles and barriers were thrown during the gatherings to protest against the billionaire owners of Manchester United, the Glazers.



Demonstrators outside the Manchester United ground became ‘especially aggressive and antagonistic towards police’ before a group of around 100 people then forced entry to the stadium, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said.

Some United staff were forced to lock themselves in rooms as people scaled the stadium structure, the force said.


A senior officer has condemned the ‘reckless and dangerous’ behaviour.
Assistant Chief Constable Russ Jackson said: “The behaviour displayed today by those at both Old Trafford and The Lowry Hotel was reckless and dangerous.

“We understand the passion many supporters have for their team and we fully respect the right for peaceful protest. Plans were in place to ensure this could happen safely, but it soon became clear that many present had no intention of doing so peacefully.


“The actions of those today required us to take officers from front line policing and call in support from neighbouring forces to prevent the disorder getting worse.

“At different points, bottles and barriers were thrown, officers assaulted and people scaled the stadium structure creating risk for themselves and officers.”


The force are now looking for those responsible for the assaults and disorder and bosses have promised to pursue prosecution.

ACC Jackson added: “We have launched an investigation and we will be working closely alongside partners to ensure we establish the full circumstances surrounding today's events and prosecute those responsible.”


The anti-Glazer movement has gained huge momentum in recent weeks following their failed attempt to form part of a breakaway European Super League in April.


GMP say more than 1,000 gathered at Old Trafford and around 200 were present at The Lowry Hotel.

North Korea warns US and South Korea of 'crisis beyond control' in heated statements http://nairaplace.com//3449/north-korea-warns-us-and-south-korea-of-crisis-beyond-control-in-heated-statements.html


In one statement, North Korea blasted US President Joe Biden for saying, in a speech to Congress on Thursday that Pyongyang's nuclear program presents "a serious threat to America's security and world security."


North Korea which is now a nuclear state, accused the US of engaging in "political chicanery" last week, when the State Department called North Korea "one of the most repressive and totalitarian states in the world."


Kwon Jong Gun, the director general of the Department of US Affairs at North Korea's Foreign Ministry, said Biden's remarks on North Korea during his speech were a "big blunder" that was indicative of an "outdated policy from Cold War-minded perspective and viewpoint."


North Korea's warnings come after Joe Biden's press secretary said on Friday the US had completed a months-long policy review on North Korea and it now plans to pursue a "calibrated, practical approach" that differs from the Trump administration's strategy of pursuing a grand bargain or the Obama administration's focus on "strategic patience."



"His statement clearly reflects his intent to keep enforcing the hostile policy toward the DPRK as it had been done by the US for over half a century," Kwon said, using the acronym for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.


"Now that what the keynote of the US new DPRK policy has become clear, we will be compelled to press for corresponding measures, and with time the US will find itself in a very grave situation."


Responding to the State Department's comments on human rights in North Korea, the North Korean Foreign Ministry said the US "has no right to even discuss human rights."


"The US, where innocent people lose their lives to social inequality and racism every day, where 580,000 people died of novel coronavirus, is itself a human rights wasteland," the statement read.


North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yo Jong, in a separate statement also warned South Korea that it would face consequences after North Korean defectors used balloons to send leaflets into North Korean territory.


North Korea claims sending leaflets is a direct violation of the agreement reached at the Inter-Korean summit in April 2018. As part of the deal, both North and South Korea agreed to cease "all hostile acts and eliminating their means, including broadcasting through loudspeakers and distribution of leaflets" along their shared border.


Kim said North Korea could not hide its displeasure over the "sordid acts" carried out by the defectors, who she referred to as "human waste" and "dirty human scum."


"We regard the maneuvers committed by the human wastes in the south as a serious provocation against our state and will look into corresponding action," she said.

Kim said Pyongyang believed that Seoul gave "silent approval" to the defectors.


"Whatever decision we make and whatever actions we take, the responsibility for the consequences thereof will entirely rest with the South Korean authorities who stopped short of holding proper control of the dirty human scum," Kim said


Joe Biden and South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, are scheduled to meet in Washington later this month as they prepare to reveal their new strategy for North Korea.

Kidnapped Kaduna minor killed after parents paid N5m ransom http://nairaplace.com//3447/kidnapped-kaduna-minor-killed-after-parents-paid-n5m-ransom.html A little boy, Muhammad Kabir, who was kidnapped from his parents’ home in Kaduna state, has been found dead, seven days after he was taken and N5 million ransom was paid for his release.



DailyTrust reports that Kabir was taken from the Badarawa suburb of Kaduna North local government area and is believed to have been killed by his kidnappers, one of whom is said to be his neighbour. His body was found in drainage in Kano after a weeklong search and returned to Kaduna today May 1 for burial.




Sources in the community also said immediately the boy was declared missing, a search for him was done for days before a call came in from the kidnappers demanding N50m, and then later reduced the amount to N35m before finally agreeing to N5m.



Abdulrahman Kabir Magayaki, a brother to the victim, said late Kabir was taken away from their house to Zaria then to Kano State where his body was retrieved after the ransom was paid.

“One of the suspects that took the boy away was our neighbour while the ex-military personnel was also a resident in the community. They took him to Zaria from there to Kano where his body was retrieved inside drainage after they collected 5 million naira ransom,” he said.

Abdulrahman said the victim’s body was brought back to Kaduna and buried according to Islamic rites on Saturday May 1. Another resident, on condition of anonymity, said the victim must have been killed after he recognised the faces of his abductors since they all live in the same area.



Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the Kaduna state police command, ASP Mohammed Jalige, said three suspects have been arrested in connection to the crime, including the neighbour.



He said they all confessed to the crime but said he cannot comment on the military background of one of the suspects until after the investigation is concluded.]]>

It was gathered that three others including a pregnant woman were reportedly injured in the attack that happened in the early hours of Friday, April 30.



The armed herdsmen were said to have escaped with gunshot wounds after troops of Operation Whirl Stroke (OPWS) trailed them to the Benue Nasarawa border and engaged them in a gun duel.



According to reports, the herdsmen first invaded Ahume Village along Makurdi/Naka Road but were dislodged by the troops who then stationed at the village to ward off a possible attack by the invaders.



One of the natives who identified himself as Fidelis told Tribune that while the troops were patrolling Ahume community, the herdsmen went further to Tse-Nyarei Village and started shooting in all direction killing five people and injuring others including a pregnant woman.



The native said that the five dead bodies have so far been recovered by security agencies, while three others including a pregnant woman were rescued alive with severe gunshot injuries even as many were said to still be missing.



Fidelis said that the dead bodies have been evacuated while the wounded were also taken to the hospital for treatment.

"Many others were injured. The soldiers followed and met the bandits at the river bank on the border between Benue and Nasarawa States where they exchanged fire with them. They however crossed the river and escaped into Nasarawa State.”]]>

Chelsea ready to sell Nigerian striker Tammy Abraham for £40m http://nairaplace.com//3435/chelsea-ready-to-sell-nigerian-striker-tammy-abraham-for-40m.html

According to a new report by The Telegraph, Haaland is top of Tuchel’s shopping list this summer even though the 20-year-old could cost upwards of £100million after netting 53 goals in just 56 games.


Chelsea, with an already overpaid squad, need to free up the wage budget, to get a deal over the line and could sacrifice Tammy Abraham, 23, for around £40m.


West Ham are known to be keen on the Delta State indigene who snubbed representing Nigeria for England.


Abraham has scored 30 goals in 81 games for the Blues but has fallen way down the pecking order since Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard in January.


It is also believed Chelsea are keen to sell Olivier Giroud who has also struggled for gametime under Tuchel.


Giroud will leave on a free transfer, bringing his three-and-a-half years in west London to an end, except Chelsea give him a new contract.


Abraham and Giroud’s exits will free up around £200,000-a-week in wages which they can use to pay Haaland ]]>

Women lost $800 billion in income last year, more than the combined GDP of 98 countries http://nairaplace.com//3433/women-lost-800-billion-in-income-last-year-more-than-the-combined-gdp-of-98-countries.html

According to a new report from Oxfam International, the massive financial losses of women is much more than the combined gross domestic products of 98 countries, the $700 billion market capitalization Amazon topped last year and the nearly $721.5 billion that the US government spent in it's 2020 defense budget.


"Economic fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic is having a harsher impact on women, who are disproportionately represented in sectors offering low wages, few benefits and the least secure jobs," said Gabriela Bucher, executive director of Oxfam International.


"Instead of righting that wrong, governments treated women's jobs as dispensable -- and that has come at a cost of at least $800 billion in lost wages for those in formal employment."


The organization cites the total income loss as a "conservative estimate" that doesn't account for "wages lost by the millions of women working in the informal economy" -- which they describe as domestic workers, market vendors and garment workers.


"Covid-19 has dealt a striking blow to recent gains for women in the workforce," Bucher said.


According to OxFam, women account for more than 64 million jobs lost last year. That's 5% of all jobs held by women, compared to a 3.9% loss for men.


"We were facing a crisis of inequality before 2020 and that's now exploded. That's as a result of a lack of attention to gender sensitive policy making and leaving women on their own to cope with this crisis and to absorb the systemic failures that have led us to this point," said Mara Bolis, associate director of Women's Economic Empowerment at Oxfam America.



Even before the pandemic, women only earn 77 cents per every dollar that men make, according to the United Nations. And now the coronavirus crisis has only made the gender pay gap even worse.]]>

Man's penis cut off and fed to pigs after he allegedly tried to rape his niece http://nairaplace.com//3432/man-s-penis-cut-off-and-fed-to-pigs-after-he-allegedly-tried-to-rape-his-niece.html


The man, from Olhos D'Agua in Brazil, was drunk when he allegedly attempted to attack his 20-year-old niece who managed to fight off his advances and fled before he then staggered home and went to sleep.



Enraged, the niece's boyfriend and his cousin did not call the police and took matters into their own hands.



The pair asked him if he could join them in a nearby sugarcane field where they planned to castrate some pigs but the two men attacked him instead, it is reported.



After beating him unconscious, they removed his trousers and cut off his penis and testicles, reports allege.



When the man regained consciousness, he called an ambulance and was taken to Doutor Gil Alves Municipal Hospital in Bocaiuva, where medics managed to stop the bleeding, saving his life.



Surgeons then struggled to reconstruct his urinary tract, so that the man could relieve himself, but they say there is no hope of replacing anything that he lost after it was apparently thrown to the pigs and eaten.



According to police officer Michael Stephan da Silva, the force searched for the missing penis but did not find it and believed it had indeed been eaten by the animals.

Surgeon Felipe Lobo said: "It was like something out of a scene from a Dante novel.

"His penis and scrotum had been severed and his external genitalia was completely missing.



"All we could do was stem the bleeding, give him a blood transfusion and clean the wound."



The man is now on antibiotics and will be able to leave the hospital in two to four days.



The two suspects have been arrested. It is unclear if the man whose genitals were removed is to be charged with attempted rape.]]>

Farmer and his dog both died in the accident as a result of the injuries suffered in the collision.



However, during the course of the investigation, Sandy Springs Police Traffic Investigators found that the exact same vehicle had been involved in another hit-and-run incident with a vehicle only minutes before running over Farmer and his dog.



“Sandy Springs Police Traffic Investigators learned that minutes prior to this deadly incident, the same hit-and-run vehicle had been involved in an additional hit-and-run crash with another vehicle while in the area of Roswell Road and I-285,” Sandy Springs Police Department said in a statement on social media.



“The suspect was fleeing the first incident at a high-rate of speed when it struck the pedestrian and his dog; causing fatal injuries to both.”



Sandy Springs Police Department identified the vehicle as a 2020 white Chevy Malibu with Florida tags and were also able to find the vehicle and the owner, 38-year-old Dominque Houston of Newnan, Georgia about 50 miles south of Sandy Springs before placing her under arrest.



Houston was then taken into custody, interviewed by authorities, and subsequently charged with vehicular homicide in the first degree, reckless driving, two counts of hit and run, and one count of following too closely.



She has now been booked into the Fulton County Jail and is awaiting prosecution.

77 inmates of IOWA prison given overdoses of Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine http://nairaplace.com//3425/77-inmates-of-iowa-prison-given-overdoses-of-pfizer-s-covid-19-vaccine.html


The incident took place at the state’s maximum-security prison at Fort Madison where some inmates may have received six times the normal dose, the Iowa Department of Corrections confirmed.



None of the inmates became ill enough to need outside medical treatment or hospitalisation, said spokesman Cord Overton.



“The large majority of inmates continue to have very minor symptoms consistent with those that receive the recommended dose of the vaccine,” Mr Overton told The Des Moines Register.



“These include sore arm, body aches, and one inmate has experienced a low-grade fever, which was treatable with Tylenol.”



Following the incident, prison officials have consulted with experts at the University of Iowa, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Pfizer.



Experts have said that the prisoners should be monitored for 48 hours but that “they did not expect any inmates to have severe reactions.”



The two nurses who delivered the vaccine doses have been placed on administrative leave while an investigation is carried out.]]>

Straight Nigerian woman marries gay best friend but claim they never have sex (photos) http://nairaplace.com//3424/straight-nigerian-woman-marries-gay-best-friend-but-claim-they-never-have-sex-photos-.html


Deidre Olsen, 30, and her model friend Chiderah Sunny, 25, both from Canada, felt "instant chemistry" when they met two years ago.



They left their hometown in June 2020 and now live together in Germany with writer Deidre's 13-year-old dog.



Their relationship turned into something more when the pair decided to get married on February 25, 2021.



The couple first met on a Hinge date where they knew they were soulmates. They said it was an instant connection.



Chiderah, who is of Nigerian descent, realized she was straight but still proposed to Deidre with just three of their close friends attending their wedding.

Now they are in the process of filing paperwork to be legally married.



Chiderah told FEMAIL: "I knew I loved Deidre when we first moved to Berlin.



"Everything was just so magical and fell into place so beautifully.



"My perception of marriage has changed. It's not rooted in romantic love, which I was conditioned to believe."



The pair both seek "casual sex and companionship" elsewhere and insist they're open to evolving their relationship.

Deidre added: "We realised we were soulmates when we moved to Germany, given how much magic happens when we are together.



''Prior to meeting Chiderah, I'd never known anyone who had such a powerful impact on my life. With her, mountains move."



Chiderah popped the question to Deidre after the pair moved to Berlin.



The pair exchanged vows on Deidre's 30th birthday in February during lockdown with the couple holding a ceremony in their flat.

Although the pair have had some negative responses to their relationship, their family and friends are supportive of their decisions.



Deidre said: "They want us to be happy most of all, no matter what that means.



"Our story has sparked conversations and galvanised people to re-imagine relationships."



The pair have considered starting a family together after recently welcoming a second dog into their home.



The couple also want to try co-parenting at some point.



Chiderah concluded: "We've discussed co-parenting, maybe even with friends, because we believe it takes a village to raise a family."]]>

Football icons, Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry inducted into Premier League Hall of Fame http://nairaplace.com//3418/football-icons-alan-shearer-and-thierry-henry-inducted-into-premier-league-hall-of-fame.html


The Hall of Fame is the highest individual honour awarded to players by the League and celebrates the talent and achievements of standout professionals who have featured in the division since its creation in 1992. To be eligible, players must have been retired as of August 1, 2020.

Former Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United striker, Shearer still holds the record as the Premier League's highest scorer with 260 goals in 441 appearances across 14 seasons.



He won the title with Blackburn under Kenny Dalglish in the 1994/95 campaign and went on to score 148 times in the top flight during 10 years at his boyhood club Newcastle from 1996 to 2006.



The former England forward is a three-time Golden Boot winner and remains the only player to have reached 100 Premier League goals for two different clubs.



Shearer said: "When you look at some of the unbelievable players to have graced the Premier League - week in, week out, year in, year out - I feel very honoured to join the Hall of Fame. I have to thank all of my team-mates, as well as the managers and coaches that I've worked with.



"All I ever wanted to be was a professional footballer. It was my dream to do that, my dream to win trophies and my dream to score at St James' Park, to wear the number nine black-and-white shirt and it was fantastic. I enjoyed every minute of it."

Henry scored a club record 175 Premier League goals in 258 appearances for Arsenal and was the league's top scorer in a season a record four times.



The Frenchman won the Golden Boot award a record four times and scored a club-record 175 Premier League goals in 258 appearances for the Gunners.



He scored over 20 Premier League goals in five campaigns in a row between 2001 and 2006. Henry also surpassed Ian Wright's total of 185 goals in all competitions to become Arsenal's all-time record scorer (with 228) during his time in north London.



Henry said: "To be inducted alongside Alan Shearer as the two first inductees into the Premier League Hall of Fame is more than special.



"When I was young, I was just trying to make sure I could get a pair of boots and now we're talking about the Hall of Fame. During my career I wanted to play hard and make sure I was fighting for the cause, because that's all the fans want to see.



"If you asked me at the start of my career about entering the Hall of Fame, I wouldn't have believed you. It's an amazing honour."]]>

The bank disclosed this in its Power Sector Recovery Programme (PSRP) Opinion Research Fact Sheet obtained in Abuja, stating that the findings were done after a thorough survey conducted by the financial institution.


Providing highlights from its findings and analysis of the PSRP, the World bank said 93 per cent of consumers paid their electricity bills regularly whenever their units were exhausted.


It said, “Seventy-six per cent (power users are) willing to pay more for electricity if supply improves. Sixty-seven per cent agree that electricity theft is a big issue and affects quality of supply.


“Fifty-eight per cent do not have a meter to measure electricity use. Seventy-eight per cent have less than 12 hours daily access to electricity. Sixty-two per cent do not believe that the power sector is being managed efficiently.”


It added, “Seventy-four per cent are dissatisfied with electricity supply. Eighty-seven per cent are unaware of ongoing reforms (PSRP) in the power sector.


“Fifty-three per cent do not receive adequate customer service from Discos (distribution companies). Eighty-two per cent are unaware of tariff band classifications.”


“Metering is a key concern nationwide – respondents were generally dissatisfied with the metering system. Electricity tariff is a nationwide concern.


“There should be significant improvement in service delivery before increase in tariff. Majority of respondents are unaware of the key policies and activities of government and operators.”


It added, “Electricity theft and vandalism are major issues and impact significantly on the quality of power supply.


“Respondents express high level of distrust with regards to government’s commitment to improving power supply.”]]>

Woman ends up in hospital after sex with husband leads to 'never-ending orgasm' http://nairaplace.com//3411/woman-ends-up-in-hospital-after-sex-with-husband-leads-to-never-ending-orgasm-.html


Liz and her partner Eric shared the bizarre tale on TLC's Sex Sent Me To The ER.



They recalled having a bit of morning sex when she began to orgasm. The orgasm went on and on for hours.



They began to panic and an hour and a half into the orgasm Liz tried everything to stop the sensation.



"I started hopping up and down to see if that would do anything," Liz says while recalling the experience.



She said nothing worked, not even a large glass of red wine or antihistamines.



Liz says: "I had to call in and tell my boss that I wasn't feeling very well.



"I ended up calling every medical professional I've ever seen in my life to try and get somebody to give me an answer!"

Eric told her they would have to go to the hospital.



Medics were just about to write a prescription for valium when the orgasm spontaneously stopped, more than four hours after it started.



Liz says: "At first, it was just sheer disbelief. I didn't believe it and I was afraid that it was going to start right back up."



Unfortunately, the weird problem returned and Liz now needs medication daily to stop random embarrassing and debilitating orgasms in public and at home.

She explained: "Initially, it was just like after sex, and then it got to the point where I would be doing whatever – watching TV, walking down the street – and I would have an orgasm out of the blue.



"I would have as many as 12 spontaneous prolonged orgasms in one day."



The medicine eventually got her orgasms under control.



Liz says: "I got down to where I was having them only daily, and then I was having them only every other day, and then it was about once a week, and then maybe it was about once a month."]]>

Jealous businessman shoots wife's friend and suspected lover dead, injures wife http://nairaplace.com//3407/jealous-businessman-shoots-wife-s-friend-and-suspected-lover-dead-injures-wife-.html


Commutalk reported that 35-year-old businessman Peter Dube shot and killed his second wife’s friend Gamuchirai Mudungwe and another male companion, only identified as Shelton. Dube also shot and seriously injured his second wife Nyasha Nharingo (31) and her sister Nyaradzo Nharingo (34).

It was gathered that Dube was involved in a heated dispute with Nyasha whom he suspected of infidelity. He is said to have been incensed when he learned that his wife and sister together with Gamuchirai and Shelton had travelled to Masvingo together without informing him, ostensibly to collect Nyaradzo’s passport.



An eyewitness said;



“At around 2000hrs, Dube armed with an unknown type of firearm went to number 11 Bensam Flats Main Street where an argument ensued accusing his second wife of having an affair with Shelton.”

Gamuchirai was said to have been called in by her friend and went to the flat to try to help diffuse the situation. Unfortunately, Dube went berserk and started shooting. Gamuchirai was caught in the crossfire and died after being shot in the chest.



The eyewitness added;



“Dube then went downstairs and shot Shelton who was seated in the car once on the head and he is reported to have died instantly.

“He went back upstairs where he met Gamuchirai on the door and shot her on the chest and she died before proceeding to shoot Nyasha on the neck, also shooting Nyaradzo on the head and [they] are battling for life at Gweru Provincial Hospital.”

Dube reportedly fled the scene after the shooting and is yet to be apprehended. The murderous shootings were reported to the police by Dube’s young brother Advance Dube and his first wife Jestina Chawana. They are reported to have witnessed part of the bloodbath.

Lesbian seeks for protection against her ex-lover who she accused of threatening her http://nairaplace.com//3405/lesbian-seeks-for-protection-against-her-ex-lover-who-she-accused-of-threatening-her.html


B-Metro reported that Linda Sphiwe Mpofu from Bulawayo’s Barbourfields suburb approached Bulawayo Civil Court to seek for protection against her ex-lover Brenda Mugabazi, who she accused of being violent, abusive and now stalking her and threatening her for daring to end the relationship.

Linda accused Brenda of having an insatiable sexual appetite and always demanding sex from her despite the fact that they are no longer together. She also alleged that Brenda is always demanding for sex as a way of punishing her for leaving her.



She added;



“I have been living a lesbian life with Brenda (Mugabazi) who forced me into it and I have realised that I cannot continue with it… I am begging the honourable court to grant me a protection order against her…This is because I want to live a normal life again.

“On 25 December 2020, she beat me up and I sustained a swollen left knee and foot and I am still limping up to now. Whenever she meets me, she harasses me and declares that I can’t leave her."

Even though she was granted an interim protection order in January, Linda said her situation had worsened as Brenda has been constantly threatening her and insisting that she will never let her go because she (Linda) is her wife.



Magistrate Nkosinomusa Ncube who presided over the case, said the January interim protection order was now a final protection order and warned Brenda to stay away from Linda. She also cautioned her not to communicate with Linda in any way or she would be arrested for violating the protection order.

"It was the devil that pushed me to kill my madam. l received information from my town boy Goodness that my madam has been keeping a lot of money in the house. He told me to kill her so that we can steal the money and run away," he said.



Akpan, who said he had worked with the deceased for three years before he killed her, said he did not find any huge money in the house.



But Goodness denied asking Akpan to kill her madam.]]>

Nigeria overtakes Congo as worst in global access to electricity http://nairaplace.com//3401/nigeria-overtakes-congo-as-worst-in-global-access-to-electricity.html


World Bank Group officials who made the announcement during a virtual engagement with power reporters in Abuja on the Power Sector Recovery Programme (PSRP), said Nigeria has 25 percent of people without access to electricity.



The international financial agency's officials revealed that while electrification in the country has been growing at 1.1% yearly since 2010, it has not kept pace with the population growth of 3% yearly. This has increased the deficit by 3 million people to 85m which is 57% of the population.



The group said;



“Nigeria now has the largest number of unelectrified people globally and the trend is worsening; of the electrified, the supply is very unreliable with widespread blackouts.

“Nigeria now has 25% more unelectrified people than the 2nd most unelectrified country (DRC – in absolute terms).”



WBG Practice Manager, West and Central Africa Energy, Ashish Khanna who made the presentation added;



“The power sector is operationally inefficient with unreliable supply exacerbated by high losses and lack of payment discipline.

“Businesses in Nigeria lose about $29 billion annually because of unreliable electricity while Nigerian utilities get paid for only a half of electricity they receive.”



The group also said that its PSRP intervention is helping to change the narrative. It approved $1.25bn between June 2020 and February 2021 to reset the power sector. The bank also said to achieve universal access to electricity by 2030, Nigeria would need to connect over 1 million households yearly while devising means to ensure consumers pay for the electricity consumed.]]>

Presidency says it stands behind Pantami http://nairaplace.com//3399/presidency-says-it-stands-behind-pantami.html


There have been calls for Pantami to resign because of his past statements and actions showing his support for Islamic extremist views.



The presidency described the call for Pantami's resignation as an orchestrated attempt to "cancel" him.



In a statement issued by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, the Presidency alleged that the recent calls for the sack or resignation of the minister is being sponsored by the opposition and some unnamed Information and Communication Technology (ICT) companies.



According to the statement, Pantami made enemies because he tried to put Nigeria first and had initiated plans and policies that would profit the public.



It acknowledged that the comments made by Pantami were wrong and in bad taste but said the minister had repented from the views and also apologised, adding that they were youthful errors.



The statement reads: "Today, there is an unfortunate fashion in public discourse that makes leaders in politics, religion, and civil society liable in the present for every statement they have ever made in the past – no matter how long ago, and even after they have later rejected them.



"This insidious phenomenon seeks to cancel the careers of others on the basis of a thing they have said, regardless of when they said it.



"The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy is, currently, subject to a 'cancel campaign' instigated by those who seek his removal. They do not really care what he may or may not have said some 20 years ago: that is merely the instrument they are using to attempt to 'cancel' him. But they will profit should he be stopped from making decisions that improve the lives of everyday Nigerians.



"The Minister has, rightly, apologized for what he said in the early 2000s. The views were absolutely unacceptable then, and would be equally unacceptable today, were he to repeat them. But he will not repeat them – for he has publicly and permanently condemned his earlier utterances as wrong.



"In the 2000s, the minister was a man in his twenties; next year he will be 50. Time has passed, and people and their opinions – often rightly – change.



"But all discerning Nigerians know this manufactured dispute is nothing to do with the minister’s prior words, but solely concern his actions in the present."

'It would have been a historic error not to join Super League' - Barcelona http://nairaplace.com//3398/-it-would-have-been-a-historic-error-not-to-join-super-league-barcelona.html


Barca were one of the 12 founding clubs to initially sign up to the European Super League, which has fallen apart over the last few days amid fierce protests from fans and high profile figures in the sports world.


Eight teams including the premier league's top six, have already officially withdrawn from the super league, however, Barca have said that they remain committed to the project, but admitted the public reaction must be taken into account with regards to how the initiative now moves forward.


Barcelona released an official statement on their website, which reads: "FC Barcelona shares the view of most major European football clubs, and even more so given the current socio-economic climate, that there is a need for structural reforms to guarantee the financial sustainability and feasibility of world football by improving the product that is offered to fans around the world and by consolidating and even increasing the fan base on which this sport is sustained, which is its mainstay and greatest strength.


"In this context, the FC Barcelona Board of Directors accepted, as a matter of immediate urgency, the offer to form part, as the founding member, of the Super League, a competition designed to improve the quality and attractiveness of the product offered to the football fans and, at the same time, and as one of FC Barcelona's most inalienable principles, seek new formulas for solidarity with the football family as a whole.


"The decision was made in the conviction that it would have been a historical error to turn down the opportunity to be part of this project as one of its founding members. As one of the world's top sports club, our intention shall always be to be at the forefront, this being an indispensable part of the club's identity and its sporting, social and institutional spirit.


"In whatever case, FC Barcelona, as a club that always has been and always shall be owned by each and every one of its members, expressly reserved the right to submit such an important decision to the final approval of its competent social bodies following careful and very necessary study of the proposal."


The statement continues: "Given the public reaction that the aforementioned project has generated in many and various spheres, there is no question that FC Barcelona appreciates that a much more in-depth analysis is required into the reasons that have caused this reaction in order to reconsider, if necessary, and to the required extent, the proposal as originally formulated and resolve all those issues, always for the good of the general interest of the football world. Such in-depth analysis needs time and the necessary composure to avoid taking any rash action.


"We feel it is equally important to highlight the objective fact that a Court of Justice has already granted urgent legal protection as requested, thus confirming right of the initiative on the part of the founding clubs of the Super League project. In this regard, FC Barcelona considers that it would be improper for the necessary process of reflection and debate to be established under criteria of unjustified pressure and intimidation.


"Despite being perfectly aware of the importance and interest raised by this matter, as well as the need to always act with the utmost transparency, FC Barcelona shall act at all times with due prudence and asks for the utmost understanding, respect and most of all patience among FC Barcelona supporters and public opinion in general."]]>

The village leader also disclosed that he is yet to meet the Manokores so that a cleansing ceremony can be conducted, as they fear that the incident could bring bad omen to the village.



He said;



“I am meeting with the family next week so that we conduct a cleansing ceremony to help appease Mlauzi’s spirit because if that is not done, we might have problems."]]>

Photos of prophet and his female accomplice accused of stealing newborn baby http://nairaplace.com//3396/-photos-of-prophet-and-his-female-accomplice-accused-of-stealing-newborn-baby-.html


LIB reported that Comrade Israel Joe accused the duo now identified as Ogaga Anthony Jeda and Chukwuedo Princess Priscilla, of taking a newborn away from the mother shortly after delivery.

In an update on Wednesday, April 21, Comrade Joe said that the alleged 'false' prophet and the fake nurse admitted that the woman gave birth to a baby at an orphanage home on April 15, 2021 but refused to disclose the whereabouts of the child.



Read his post below:



In a post I made two days ago, I had given an alleged False Prophet along with his accomplice (a fake nurse) 48 hours ultimatum to provide the child who was given birth to, at a quack centre.



The lady and the prophet has confessed to the police that the woman really gave birth to the child in Potter's Orphanage along 3rd Marine gate/Oil field Link road. At this point we have to state the facts at our disposal.

The prophet and the woman has refused to disclose the whereabout of the child. The child was birthed on Tuesday the 15th of April, this year. The husband to the woman who has the orphanage home where the child was birthed is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and has threatened to take up the police and ourselves. We are waiting for his court suit because disgrace awaits him.

The child according the information available to us has been sold by the False prophet and the fake nurse. The name of the False Prophet is Ogaga Anthony Jeda with phone number 08154683553 while the name of the fake nurse is Chukwuedo Princess Priscilla with phone number 07031101266. The owner of the Orphanage home where the woman delivered the baby has not been arrested by the police.



The false prophet and fake nurse had before the selling of the child defrauded the father of the missing child to the tune of 2million naira through frivolous prophesies and hypnotization. He had told the father and his wife never to tell anyone about the prayers being conducted on them because their enemies would die in few days not knowing they were targeting to sell their unborn child.



The picture of the false prophet and fake nurse are attached to this post as earlier promised. Families of both the fake nurse and the false prophet has been seriously begging the families of the victim and her husband to let go of the matter.



I can't understand such appeal when they haven't told us the whereabout of the child. We want to appeal to the police that extreme measures should be used against them, to compare them, into speaking out about the child's whereabout, since peaceful questioning has failed. If they sold the child to a politician or others for ritual purpose or for adoption, we wish to know.



Depression has taken over the victim who poured hot water on herself because of the pain of child's disappearance. Attached to this write-up is the picture of the victim and Comrade Israel Joe.



We hereby call on the Delta State Governor, the Inspector General of Police, AIG Zone 5, Commissioner of Police, Area Commander Warri and all well meaning Nigerians never to take this case with trivial levity. Any attempt or pressure to frustrate and sweep this matter under the carpet would meet a very strong resistance.]]>

I'm seriously thinking about a 2024 run for president - Donald Trump http://nairaplace.com//3392/i-m-seriously-thinking-about-a-2024-run-for-president-donald-trump.html

Speaking during his very first television interview since leaving office in January, Trump announced his Presidential ambitions. He also attacked Joe Biden for his handling of the southern border and then warned that Latin America was 'sending rapists' into the United States.


'I am looking at it very seriously,' he said. 'Beyond seriously.' Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity.

Trump invited Sean Hannity of Fox News into his Mar-a-Lago estate.


He said he believed his high poll ratings - what he termed his 'tremendous numbers' was due to disappointment in Biden's rule.


'I've got tremendous numbers. Nobody has ever gotten the numbers I got. No sitting president has come even close. There is more popularity now the end there was the day before the election,' he said.


Trump, now 74, said he is not ready to officially declare his candidacy.


'From a legal standpoint, I don't want to really talk about it yet,' he added.


He singled out having reduced taxes, reduced the cost of prescription drugs, created Space Force, and built parts of a wall along the border with Mexico.


More than 170,000 migrants were taken into custody at the U.S.-Mexico border in March - the highest monthly total since at least 2006. Now Trump says Biden's undoing of his immigration policies was very bad.


'All he had to do was leave it alone,' said Trump, pointing out that tens of thousands of migrants are currently arriving, and claiming that they were criminals and drug traffickers.


'They are sending us not their best people,' Trump said.


'They are sending us people that in many cases - not in all cases - are murderers, drug dealers, human traffickers, rapists, really bad people.



'They are sending people from prisons.'


'It's a horrible situation,' he said. 'It could destroy our country. People are pouring in.'


He told Hannity that he was looking forward to campaigning on behalf of Republican candidates for the 2022 election, and said they should embrace his policies 'if they want to win'.

'We've got to take back the house in '22,' he said. 'We have a real chance.']]>

19 children, others rescued as police bust human trafficking syndicate in Edo http://nairaplace.com//3391/19-children-others-rescued-as-police-bust-human-trafficking-syndicate-in-edo-.html


Spokesman of the command, Kontongs Bello, who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, April 20, said the women and children were trafficked from Ebonyi, Imo, Abia, Anambra and Akwa Ibom States respectively to Evbuotubu in Ekenwan Road axis of Benin City, the state capital.



Bello stated that the raid and rescue operation took place on Thursday, April 16, adding that the principal suspect is currently on the run.

"The women said they were lured from their various home states by a woman named Jennifer also called Ezine with surname yet unknown, the woman is now on the run. They were lured in a guise that Edo State Government is giving financial support to single mothers with newborn babies especially twins," the statement reads.



According to Bello, upon arrival in Benin City, the trafficked women discovered a different thing entirely as they got no support, but were rather forced into the illicit business of begging on the streets for their mistress, Jennifer.



The spokesman further explained that the women were paid peanut to take care of their children and feeding from the proceed of the begging.

Meanwhile, Bello called on the general public to disregard the rumours making the rounds on social media that the women and children were rescued from a baby factory by the Police in Benin City.



"The story is not true. It is just the imagination of some mischief makers to engage in such publication as the act is an attempt to paint Edo State in a bad light. The women and children have since been handed over to Edo State Ministry of Women Affairs for rehabilitation and a possible return to their home States while effort also is in place to arrest the fleeing mistress," he said.



"The Commissioner of Police Edo State, CP Phillip Aliyu Ogbadu, is calling on the press and the members of the public to always verify their source of information before publication in order not to mislead the general public."



He also warned criminal elements in the state to stop crime or face the full wrath of the law.



"The CP further advised parents to be wary of unknown persons who come promising heaven on earth to their children as the result is always catastrophic. He then assured the law-abiding citizens of Edo State to go about their lawful businesses as the Command will not relent in its effort to rid the State of criminal activities,” the statement concluded.]]>

The charter states that Mahamat Idriss Deby Itno has been named transitional leader as head of a military council following his father’s death and will "occupy the functions of the president of the republic" and also serve as head of the armed forces.



Mahamat Idriss Deby Itno immediately took charge of a transitional military council and appointed 14 of the most trusted generals to a junta to run Chad until "free and democratic" elections in 18-months time.



Commander in chief of the all-powerful red-bereted presidential guard or DGSSIE security service for state institutions, he carries the nickname Mahamat "Kaka" or grandmother in Chadian Arabic, after his father's mother who raised him.



Mahamat is a career soldier, just like his father.

We want referendum not asylum- IPOB replies UK government http://nairaplace.com//3385/we-want-referendum-not-asylum-ipob-replies-uk-government.html


On Tuesday, April 20, LIB shared a report that the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI), a division of the Home Office in the just-released ‘Country Policy and Information Note Nigeria: Biafran secessionist groups’, directed its decision-makers to consider if a person “who actively and openly supports IPOB is likely to be at risk of arrest and detention, and ill-treatment which is likely to amount to persecution”. Read here.



IPOB has now responded, saying its desire is to have a referendum on self-determination for the South-East and not asylum.



A referendum is a vote on which the citizens of a country give their opinion or decide an important political question. A territorial referendum could lead to the breakaway of a region from a country.



A statement from Emma Powerful, IPOB media and publicity secretary, reads;

“We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great and indomitable leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has noted with satisfaction the news that the United Kingdom has agreed to grant asylum to persecuted Biafra agitators resident in the UK.

While we commend them for this bold initiative, we wish to most graciously remind them that what we Biafrans need and cherish the most is referendum and not asylum in the UK.

We are tired of living in bondage in the devilish contraption called Nigeria they single-handedly created.

We would not wish our children, now and generations unborn, to share the same geo-political space with those that reward terrorists and criminalize law abiding citizens.

We particularly thank the UK government for confirming what the rest of the civilized world already know that the great IPOB worldwide family are not terrorists but peaceful agitators and freedom fighters.

That Nigeria is a country run by terrorists for the benefit of terrorists has been confirmed by this noble move by the United Kingdom.

Aso Rock, the seat of power in Nigeria is a terrorist haven with serving ministers who are openly sympathetic to terrorists and their activities coming and going as they please, while freedom fighters are languishing in jail. We want freedom not asylum.”]]>

Body camera footage released by Columbus Police shows the moment an officer opened fire on Ma’Khia on Tuesday, April 20, in east Columbus, killing her.



During an evening press conference Tuesday, Interim Chief of Police Michael Woods said the video shows the officer acted to save the live of another young girl.



Woods said the incident began at approximately 4:32 p.m. when 911 received a call about a group of women trying to stab the caller. Woods said dispatchers tried to get information about weapons, but didn’t get that information.



The video shows the officer arriving at the scene as a fight between the young women is taking place. Woods said a female with a knife attempts to stab one person who is on the ground, followed by a second who is pushed up against a vehicle.

Woods said the department released the footage as quickly as it could in an effort to be transparent with the public.

Woods did not release the name of the officer, but said he is off the streets as they carry out investigations.

Revenue collector strangles his relative to avoid paying the N100,000 he borrowed from him http://nairaplace.com//3372/revenue-collector-strangles-his-relative-to-avoid-paying-the-n100-000-he-borrowed-from-him.html


Recounting how he met how he killed Ebuka, Paul who is married with three children, said sometime in December 2020, he met Ebuka to borrow him the money with a promise to pay back on January 10, 2021. However, his inability to pay the loan made him conceive the idea of killing Ebuka



“I am married with three children. I dropped out of secondary school at SS2, months after my father died. I learnt how to drive and started driving commercial buses. It was not easy for me.

Two years ago, my kinsmen invited me to come and work for the community. My duty was to serve as a revenue collector for the elderly men in the community.

We have market days, and everyone was expected to drop a certain amount of money. It was going well, but I became greedy and spent part of the money I had collected on behalf of the community.

I knew I would lose my job if anyone noticed the shortage. It was out of desperation that I approached Ebuka, who owns a provision store in our village. He was my relative and we are from the same kindred in Umuleri.

We are from the same kindred in Umuleri. I borrowed N100,000 from him in December 2020 and promised to pay back on January 10. I could not meet up with the deadline and he kept disturbing me and threatened to report me to the Igwe, our king.

I made up my mind to silence him. I bought a loaf of bread and hid a sharp knife in it. I called him to meet me at Aguleri junction around 8pm. He came with an okada man and I asked the rider to go.”he said



Paul said in the process of trying to kill Ebuka, he sustained an injury but however, he overpowered the deceased and killed him. He said he went to the palace to report to the king that he was attacked by robbers and was taken to the hospital for treatment. However, the corpse of his victim was discovered the next day, leading to his arrest by the police.



‘‘I maintained that we were attacked, and that I narrowly escaped. When my wife and family members visited, I insisted that I was innocent. After I was moved to IRT, I had no choice but to confess. I cannot explain the devil that entered my head. I don’t know what to tell my family and kindred. They should all forgive me. What happened was the handiwork of the devil” he added]]>

Queen Elizabeth shares one of her images with Prince Philip just hours before his burial http://nairaplace.com//3371/queen-elizabeth-shares-one-of-her-images-with-prince-philip-just-hours-before-his-burial.html


The Queen will say a private farewell to Prince Philip before his coffin leaves Windsor Castle for today's funeral.



The monarch, 94, will take a moment to reflect at the duke's side ahead of his final journey to St George's Chapel.



Sources say she has been the "epitome of dignity" this week as she deals with the loss of her husband of 73 years, and has insisted on personally signing off final preparations for the 3pm service.



The photo released by Buckingham Palace shows Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh at one of their "happy places" – the Coyles of Muick hills close to Balmoral, where they enjoyed walking and picnics throughout their long lives together.

Queen Elizabeth loves the place that she named her new corgi puppy after it.



The photograph, taken by their daughter-in-law the Countess of Wessex in 2003 during one of their family summer holidays, was specially chosen by Her Majesty to share ahead of today's funeral.



Prince Philip's coffin, draped in his personal standard and bearing his naval cap, sword and a wreath of flowers, will first be seen at 2.41pm today when it emerges from the State Entrance to Windsor Castle carried by a bearer party from The Queen's Company, 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards.



It will then be placed on the Land Rover hearse that Philip personally designed for the occasion for the eight-minute journey to the chapel, followed by a procession of nine family members.


The service will begin with a minute's national silence, as Philip's coffin rests on the West Steps of the chapel to remember the late Duke.



No planes will land or take off at nearby Heathrow for six minutes to coincide with the minute's silence.]]>

Liberal MP William Amos, 46, who represents parts of Quebec, was spotted nude during the House of Commons meetings on Wednesday, April 14.

It's not clear which of his colleagues took a screenshot of his nude and then sent it to the press.



Amos, who is married with two kids, has since apologized for the 'unfortunate error'.



'My video was accidentally turned on as I was changing into my work clothes after going for a jog.



'I sincerely apologize to my colleagues in the House of Commons for this unintentional distraction. Obviously, it was an honest mistake and it won't happen again.'

Reacting to the incident, Bloc Quebecois Party Whip Claude DeBellefeuille, said: 'It may be necessary to remind the members, especially the male ones, that a tie and jacket are obligatory, but so are a shirt, boxer shorts or pants,' DeBellefeuille said in French.



'We have seen that the member is in great physical shape, but I think members should be reminded to be careful and control the camera well.'



'I don't think there was any ill intent - it's certainly an unfortunate circumstance,' said Liberal whip Mark Holland.

Twitter had said that it chose Ghana as its Headquarters in Africa for being a champion of democracy and being a country where there is rule of law among other reasons.

“The reasons cited by Twitter for citing the headquarters in Accra, Ghana is that Accra is a champion of democracy and there is rule of law in the country, among other reasons. This is what you get when you de-market your country.

“The media is more to blame for this which most times exaggerate the challenges in the country.

“At no time was this worse than during the #EndSARS protest when Nigerian journalists both traditional and new media were trying to outdo themselves in painting Nigeria as a hell where nobody should live.

“When they all conspired to vilify not just the government but the people of Nigeria. We are not saying that you should not criticise the country but be fair and patriotic. When you destroy your own house, where are you going to live?

“You can imagine the kind of job opportunities that citing that headquarters in Nigeria would have generated, the kind of visibility it would have given Nigeria but we destroyed it. It is what the insiders say about their country that the outsider will use to judge and condemn the country.”

“I had just dropped ‘For your Pocket’, and then my mum died two days after. I had to take my time to cry but at the same time try to hide from my guys because we were already tweeting about the release of the new song, and I did not want them to stop.

“After a while, I had to tell them to allow me when it’s time to cry, and I would not disturb them, but whatever they did, they should not stop tweeting about it.

“I would go into the shower and cry, allow the water to wash away the pain, but once I was out, it was back to work. It was at that time that Davido posted my song on Snapchat, and that gave my career the boost it needed.”]]>

White police officer who shot Jacob Blake and left him paralyzed will not face discipline http://nairaplace.com//3348/white-police-officer-who-shot-jacob-blake-and-left-him-paralyzed-will-not-face-discipline.html


The officer, Rusten Sheskey, who is white, is now back on the job after returning from administrative leave on March 31, Chief Daniel Miskinis announced Tuesday April 13.

A statement from Kenosha Police Chief Daniel Miskinis said he was "found to have been acting within policy and will not be subjected to discipline."



The determination was made after an outside investigation and an independent expert review, the statement said.



"Although this incident has been reviewed at multiple levels, I understand that some will not be pleased with the outcome; however, given the facts, it was the only lawful and appropriate decision to be made," Miskinis said.



Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley told reporters in January that Sheskey and other officers would have had a strong case for self-defense.



"If you don't believe you can prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt, you have an ethical obligation not to issue charges," Graveley said at the time.



The shooting of Blake, captured on video sparked another protest over police brutality and racism. It happened three months after George Floyd, another black man died while being restrained by police officers in Minneapolis.



Sheskey and two other Kenosha officers were trying to arrest Blake on an outstanding warrant when a pocketknife fell from his pants during a scuffle. Blake said he picked it up before heading to a vehicle to drive away with two of his children in the back seat.



As he opened the driver's side door and leaned forward, Officer Sheskey held onto his shirt and fired 7 shots into his back.]]>

Ugandan man who didn't show up at his wedding says he was resting at a friend's home http://nairaplace.com//3345/-ugandan-man-who-didn-t-show-up-at-his-wedding-says-he-was-resting-at-a-friend-s-home.html


According to Daily Monitor, Patrick and Christabella Banturaki were to set to tie the knot at All Saints Cathedral Nakasero in Kampala City last Saturday, April 10. The reception had been organised at Silver Springs Hotel in Kampala.

However, on the eve of the historic day, Dr Kabagambe disappeared and his mobile phone was switched off. This triggered panic, frantic calls, anxiety and confusion among his friends, family and in-laws.



His worried bride-to-be in company of her uncle went to Kasangati Police Station, Wakiso District, where they opened a case of a missing person.

Detectives, relatives and friends began a frantic search for the would-be groom. Worried relatives flooded social media with messages announcing the sudden disappearance of Dr Kabagambe, imploring well-wishers to share information wherever he is spotted, dead or alive.



"Dr Patrick Mbusa Kabagambe has been reported missing with his car UBH 905X on the eve of his wedding this Saturday, 10 April 21, and all his known [telephone] contacts are switched off. The case has been reported at Kasangati Police Station, SD REF 22/10/04/2021. Patriots, let’s assist trace the suspect/victim,” a relative posted in a WhatsApp group last Saturday.



On the wedding day, Dr. Patrick still didn't show up, converting what should have been a blissful ceremony into an agonising blind search.



The bride, who had been informed hours earlier that her groom has yet to appear did not head to All Saints Nakasero Cathedral.



However, some relatives, unaware of the developments, appeared at the church for the scheduled wedding, only to find neither the bride nor the groom was present.



The search continued the following day, Sunday, April 11. But before the police could engage other tracking units to establish his last contacts, Dr Kabagambe presented himself at Wandegeya Police Station in Kampala.



The deputy spokesperson for Kampala Metropolitan Police, Mr Luke Owoyesigyire, who confirmed the incident on Monday, Aprl 12, said Dr Kabagambe told detectives that he was not a missing person as reported to the Force, but elected to spend a night at the home of an undisclosed friend.



"He said he was stressed. He didn’t have a reason why he didn’t want to marry Ms Banturaki. We later released him on police bond as investigations continue,” Mr Owoyesigyire said.



However, there is no clear penal offence that the police can prefer against him given the fact that he claimed that he married Ms Banturaki in customary ceremony and even paid bride price. In Uganda, the law recognises customary marriage.



Mr Owoyesigyire said they are waiting for Ms Banturaki to record a statement with detectives to determine the next course of the case..



A close relative of Dr Kabagambe, who spoke to Daily Monitor, said the runaway groom is “traumatised” while the entire family is distressed over the flopped wedding. ]]>

Drama as woman disappears with daughter’s bride price during dowry payment http://nairaplace.com//3344/drama-as-woman-disappears-with-daughter-s-bride-price-during-dowry-payment-.html


The bride's mother, identified as Anne Maweni, reportedly feared her kinsmen would short-change her and left the ceremony with the dowry amounting to Sh170,000.



The ceremony was underway in Garsen, Tana River County, Kenya, when family members noticed Maweni, the bride's mother, was no longer present.



"During the ceremony, she is the one who served the guests and elders food but did not join them on the table. Nobody knew what time she left," said Maweni’s sister Veronica Meilu.



Efforts to reach her on phone were futile as she had switched it off.



Maweni later texted her sister with another number asking her to oversee the remainder of the ceremony.



It was then that the elders and in-laws who had gathered for the ceremony realized that something was amiss.



"I was not aware of my sister’s plans, but here I was being put to task, to explain how we stole the dowry and where my sister was," said Meilu.



As the leaders were contemplating reporting the "heist" to the police, Maweni called to explain why she took off.

"She asked me to put the phone on loudspeaker before revealing that the dowry 'theft' was a plan she had hatched with the son-in-law before the ceremony," Ms Meilu said.



Maweni said that they switched the bag containing money with one that had wrappers.



"Yes, we counted the money together but we exchanged the bag containing money with that holding wrappers because the elders are not deserving of any gains from my daughter," Anne Maweni said on phone.



It also emerged that it was the son-in-law who left the ceremony with the bride price.



Maweni defended her actions, recalling how her kinsmen abandoned her when her husband died, leaving her with two children, a five-year-old girl, and a two-year-old boy.



"After the demise of my husband, you sent me away with nothing but my daughter. You took my son away, and he later died in your hands. Then, you said that the community had no use for a girl child," she told the elders on phone.



"I have left you with female wrappers to wear since you did not stand for a widow, at her time of need," she said.



Ms Maweni, however, promised to send part of the dowry money to only one elder for his support during her tribulations and also standing in for her daughter’s marriage ceremony.



"Mzee Bajila, you are like a father to me and witnessed the atrocities against me. You fought for me in vain. So only you, deserve a portion of this money," she said and hung up.

Darius has held the record for being the largest rabbit in the world for over 11 years after the Guinness Book of World Records gave him his title of April 6, 2010.

PSG snubbed €300m offer from Real Madrid to buy Neymar http://nairaplace.com//3334/psg-snubbed-300m-offer-from-real-madrid-to-buy-neymar.html

According to Wagner Ribeiro, Paris Saint-Germain made it clear that even "a billion" would not be enough to get the Brazilian.


PSG smashed the world transfer record in the summer of 2017 to sign Neymar away from Barcelona in a €222m (£192m/$264m) deal.


Since Neymar's move to PSG there have been reports he could come back to Spain, with Barcelona his former club also interested.


Ribeiro, a former agent of Neymar, told L'Equipe: "At that time, he was close to going to Real Madrid. Madrid were willing to pay €300m for him. Florentino [Perez] told me, but Nasser [Al-Khelaifi] refused. 'Not for a billion, he's not going to go!' He told me."



Ribeiro added: "He is happy there. No club in the world can offer you what PSG offers. Only they can afford Neymar. Madrid has financial problems. Barca? Even worse. In Italy and United or City? I don't think so.

"In Paris he makes a good living and plays for a very good team. This season they will win the Champions League and Neymar will land the Ballon d'Or."


Neymar has scored 83 goals in 106 appearances, helping PSG win domestic honours and reach the Champions League final.]]>

IPOB denies attacking Imo police headquarters and correctional centre http://nairaplace.com//3329/ipob-denies-attacking-imo-police-headquarters-and-correctional-centre.html


It was reported earlier that over 2,000 inmates were freed after the attack on Monday, April 5. The group averred that it is not their mandate to attack security personnel or prison facilities.



A statement released by IPOB's spokesperson, Emma Powerful read;



“The attention of IPOB has been drawn again to the fallacious and fabricated news that IPOB and ESN are involved in the attack of prison and police headquarters in Owerri Imo State.

“IPOB and ESN are known groups not unknown gunmen. ESN is in the bush chasing Fulani terrorists, why linking IPOB and ESN to this attack. IPOB and ESN were not involved in the attack in Owerri Imo State. and the recent attack on Onitsha Owerri road at Ukwuorji junction. It is not our mandate to attack security personnel or prison facilities.

“The Nigeria Government and her compromised media outfits should stop linking IPOB and ESN to the multiple attacks going on in Nigeria now. IPOB was formed on principle of peace and we are still in it. Unknown gunmen is a different people which we don’t know them and they not IPOB or ESN security outfit.”]]>

President Vladimir Putin named Russia's sexiest man alive http://nairaplace.com//3321/president-vladimir-putin-named-russia-s-sexiest-man-alive.html


A survey of 2,000 Russian men and women found that Putin is the most good looking man in the country.



The 68-year-old was the only man to reach double figures in the poll by job board site, SuperJob. When asked who the most attractive man in the country was, 18% of men and 17% of women voted for Putin.

'Russians still call Vladimir Putin the most attractive of the famous men in the country,' the site said.

'In this field, neither actors, nor athletes, nor other politicians can compete with him today.'

The Russian leader was named ahead of actors Dmitry Nagiyev, Danila Kozlovsky, and Konstantin Khabensky, with only 2-3% of respondents finding them the most attractive.



The results were published days after legislators passed a law allowing President Putin to stay in power as president until 2036 when he turns 83.

The survey was carried out by interviewing 1,000 men and 1,000 women in more than 300 cities across Russia between March 22 and March 31.



Putin has been pictured shirtless, sometimes fishing, or riding on horseback while on holiday in the past.



In 2018, he said was not embarrassed about the shirtless photos because he saw 'no need to hide behind the bushes' while on vacation. ]]>

Convicted fraudster bags 70 years jail term in Sokoto (photo) http://nairaplace.com//3316/convicted-fraudster-bags-70-years-jail-term-in-sokoto-photo-.html


Justice Duwale pronounced his verdict on Bashar after he was found guilty of obtaining Twenty Nine Million Eight Hundred and Sixty-Five Thousand Naira (N29,865,000.00) by false pretense.



He was arraigned, by the Sokoto Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on November 7, 2019, on a 12-count amended charge, bordering on conspiracy and obtaining money by false pretense.



Count one of the charge reads:



“That you Hamzat Bashar Muhammad, Hindatu Bashar (Now at Large) and Hamga Investment Resources Limited sometimes within the months of June to December, 2018 at Sokoto within the Jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, with intent to defraud, did obtain the total sum of N23,760,000 (Twenty Three Million Seven Hundred and Sixty Naira) from Hadiza Aliyu (for herself and other victims) when you falsely represented yourselves to her, to be running a genuine business investment of Gold and Herbs, a pretence you knew to be false and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 1(1)(a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act of 2006 and punishable under Section 1(3) of the same Act.”



He pleaded not guilty to all the charges, which necessitated his trial.



Prosecution counsel, Habila Jonathan, in the course of the trial called ten witnesses and tendered several documents to prove the case against the defendant.



Delivering judgment on Thursday, Justice Duwale ruled that the EFCC has proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt; convicted the defendant on counts 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 12.



He then sentenced him to seven years in prison without an option of fine on each of the 10 counts, which will run concurrently.



In addition, the Judge ordered the convict to restitute the total sum of N29,135,000 (Twenty Nine Million One Hundred and Thirty-Five Thousand Naira) to the victims through the EFCC.



Basha’s trouble started when the EFCC received a petition from one Imran Ahmed and several other victims, alleging he had defrauded them to the tune of N29,865,000.00 (Twenty Nine Million, Eight Hundred and Sixty-Five Thousand) in a phony investment scheme in which they were promised 20 percent returns on investment every month and dividends at the end of the year. However after investing various sums of money, they neither received the 20% returns nor got any dividends.]]>

Pastor breaks into ex-lover's house and mercilessly beats her http://nairaplace.com//3315/pastor-breaks-into-ex-lover-s-house-and-mercilessly-beats-her.html


It was gathered that the incident occurred after Maritha Khumalo who refused to allow the Pastor into her home at Entumbane, locked herself in.



Pastor Nkomo was said to have left briefly only to return around 7pm to hide in a nearby maize field, anticipating that Maritha would eventually open the door. He was however spotted at the farm by his ex-lover.



After realising that his plan was not working, Pastor Nkomo scaled over the precast wall and knocked on Maritha’s door. After she insisted on not opening the door, he then climbed onto the roof where he removed two asbestos sheets and jumped into the house from above. After gaining entry into the house, he started assaulting his ex-lover.



A bleeding Maritha eventually made her way out of the house and sought sanctuary at a neighbour’s. He was later arrested and charged with physical abuse and malicious damage to property.



Upon being arraigned before Western Commonage magistrate Jeconia Prince Ncube, he readily pleaded guilty to the charges. He was convicted on his own plea and fined $10,000 for physical abuse.



On the charge of malicious damage to property, the Pastor was sentenced to 6 months of which three months were suspended on condition that he does not commit a similar offence within a period of five years.



The other three months were suspended on the condition that he pays $22,680 as restitution to Jabulani Chirinda, the landlord, for the roof that he damaged.

In a video shared on her Twitter handle, Tacha said Buhari is not going anywhere until he completes his tenure. She pointed out that the only way Nigerians can fulfill their dream of having competent leaders in positions of authority is when they get involved in the election processes which includes coming out to cast their votes during an election.



Taking a cue from a recently held by-election in Abia state where a small number of registered voters came out to vote, Tacha said:

''Nigerians forming woke but na we silly pass. #Buharimustgo is currently trending. You and I know Buhari is not going anywhere until he completes his tenure so what is the need really?

There was a bye election in Abia state and out of 500,000 registered voters, only 16,000 came out to vote. That is like 3 people out of 100 people. It is as good as nothing.

How do we keep complaining about bad governance and we do not want to get involved in governance. How do you get involved in governance? By seeing it as an obligation to use your voters card to vote. The voters card is not going to vote by itself. You need to use it. You need to use it. Buhari has nothingwith only 16, 000 people out of N500, 000 people going out to vote.

That mindset of ours need to change. We want good governance, we need to vote in good governance. '']]>

According to the Nigerian Tribune, the deceased identified as Talle Mai Ruwa, said to be 'mentally unstable,' was seized by a mob from a police Station in the village where he was being detained for allegedly blaspheming Prophet Muhammad, and lynched on Tuesday afternoon, March 30.



According to the report, the irate mob beat him to death, dragged his lifeless body around the village before setting it on fire.

A source in the village who spoke to Nigerian Tribune in Bauchi said that the late Talle who was hardworking and easy-going allegedly made the blasphemy on Monday March 29, when a girl came to fetch water from his water source, a borehole, without his consent.



The source narrated that the girl pleaded with the angry vendor in the name of God and the Prophet to allow her to fetch the water but he allegedly insulted her parents and the Prophet.



His alleged blasphemous remarks triggered outburst and tension in the village such that the village head took him to the police outpost station in the village where he spent the night.



"The next morning (Tuesday), the issue spread everywhere and everyone in the village was provoked. Later, a group of angry youths stormed the police station, subdued the police officers around and grabbed Talle. He was beaten to death and his dead body was set ablaze" the source said.

Nigerian beauty queen/PhD student, 24, shot dead in US http://nairaplace.com//3311/nigerian-beauty-queen-phd-student-24-shot-dead-in-us.html


Najeebat Sule, 24, who was known to her loved ones as Najee, was killed as she was texting a friend in her Toyota shortly before 6pm on March 12, just steps away from her residence in the 8800 block of Frankford Avenue.

At the moment, police have not found a motive and have made no arrests, leaving Najeebat's family and friends searching for answers. They have also gone into hiding for fear of their own lives.



"I can’t think of anything that would make anyone want to kill her," Najeebat's close friend Habibat Magaji, told the Philadelphia Inquirer.



Magaji was among the last people to have seen Najeebat alive before she was shot.



The two women had spent the night before at Magaji's home, eating snacks and watching Netflix together.



Less than 24 hours later, Najeebat was sitting in her gray Toyota Corolla, exchanging text messages with Magaji, when an unidentified man walked up to the vehicle with a gun drawn and shot her several times.



Najeebat's father, Adewale Sule, heard the gunfire and came out from the house just in time to see the suspect fire the last of the shots at his daughter.



Mr Sule said: "I saw the guy shooting my daughter. He shot the last round and I pursued him. He ran back to his car."



Najeet was rushed to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital, where she was pronounced dead about 30 minutes later.

Her mother, Tawakalitu Sule, said she last heard from Najeebat less than two hours before the shooting, when her daughter asked her when she was going to be home.



"All of my children have been crying every day because of their big sister. They really miss her. I miss my daughter," she said.

Najeet is survived by her parents and two sisters.



"She was very talented, smart and funny," one of her siblings told 6abc.



The family are currently staying at an undisclosed location over unspecified concerns for their safety.



Sule and her family moved to Philadelphia from Nigeria in the early 2000s.



Sule had only recently earned a Master’s degree in public health from West Chester University and was pursuing a doctorate.

Speaking on a Channels Television Programme on Wednesday March 31, Abaribe stated that no one takes President Buhari serious in handling of insecurity including the service chiefs.



Recounting how kidnappings have repeatedly occurred even after the President promised it will be the last, the senator pointed out that Buhari gave matching orders throughout Buratai's time as the Chief of Army Staff.



He said;



“Why would we take him (President Muhammadu Buhari) seriously? Just the day after he had said we would no longer accept all these kidnappings, this would be the last, they kidnapped the last day.

“And those people are still there; those innocent Nigerians are still in captivity up till now. He always makes a statement. Every time these things happen, nothing happens. So it is obvious nobody takes him seriously with that. Even the military chiefs, I don’t think they bother themselves.

“This is about the umpteenth time that we are hearing the President giving a marching order. Throughout the Buratai time as the Chief of Army Staff, he was always giving marching orders so he has given just another one.”]]>

The average Northerner marrying two, three, four women, are helping the society - Ned http://nairaplace.com//3307/the-average-northerner-marrying-two-three-four-women-are-helping-the-society-ned-.html


Nwoko in an interview with BBC Igbo, said the average northerner has at least two wives and this helps the society by preventing women from venturing into prostitution.



In his words



“The average Northerner marrying two, three, four women, they are helping the society because it is the economic downturn that has affected so many women who you see doing prostitution and all that. But the fallacy of it all is that Christianity does not allow that in the South and yet, the average Southern man has 10 girlfriends.”



Speaking further, Nwoko said the polygamist nature of northerners has helped to increase their population and made them the majority in the country.

“I love my culture as I know it, not as they are trying to dilute it. Igbo culture is wonderful and should be promoted the way it has always been.

But even looking at that, look at your population in Nigeria and what I will call economy of marriage, as an Igbo man with one wife, four children, a Northerner has four wives with five children each, in the next 10 years, 20 years, imagine the population of the Northerners.”]]>

US President Joe Biden issues proclamation acknowledging March 31st as Transgender Day http://nairaplace.com//3306/us-president-joe-biden-issues-proclamation-acknowledging-march-31st-as-transgender-day-.html


The day is now dedicated to celebrating transgender people and bringing awareness to the discrimination and violence they face every day.



In his proclamation today, Biden said Trans Day of Visibility recognizes the generations of activism by transgender and nonbinary people.



“Their trailblazing work has given countless transgender individuals the bravery to live openly and authentically,” Biden wrote. “This hard-fought progress is also shaping an increasingly accepting world in which peers at school, teammates and coaches on the playing field, colleagues at work, and allies in every corner of society are standing in support and solidarity with the transgender community.”



Biden explained that trans people “still face systemic barriers to freedom and equality,” such as higher rates of violence, harassment and discrimination.



''Nearly 1 in 3 trans people have experienced homelessness and they also face discrimination in employment, housing, health care and public accommodations.'' Biden said



“The crisis of violence against transgender women, especially transgender women of color, is a stain on our Nation’s conscience. Forty-four transgender people were killed in the United States last year, a record; 23 of them were Black trans women.'' he added



Biden said his administration has already started implementing new policies to protect trans people, such as the executive order he issued on the first day of his presidency to expand discrimination protections for LGBTQ people under federal laws such as the Affordable Housing Act.



He also mentioned, “the first openly transgender American to be confirmed by the United States Senate” Rachel Levine, the assistant secretary for health and “patriotic transgender service members, who are once again able to proudly and openly serve their country” a reference to his executive order undoing former President Donald Trump’s ban on transgender people serving in the military.



Biden also called on Congress to pass the Equality Act, a sweeping bill that would grant LGBTQ people protections from discrimination in employment, housing, education, credit, jury service, and more.



“To more fully protect the civil rights of transgender Americans, we must pass the Equality Act and provide long-overdue Federal civil rights protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity,” Biden wrote. “It will serve as a lasting legacy to the bravery and fortitude of the LGBTQ+ movement.”

Man arrested after he attempted to swim naked in Kendall Jenner's pool http://nairaplace.com//3303/man-arrested-after-he-attempted-to-swim-naked-in-kendall-jenner-s-pool.html


According to TMZ, a 27-year-old man managed to enter the property of her gated LA home in the early hours of Sunday morning, March 28. He then reportedly proceeded to knock on all the windows while yelling out the Kendall's name.



Kendall Jenner was not home at the time but her security team was alerted to the breach. As guards tracked his movements, they discovered the intruder stripped naked and attempted swimming in Jenner's pool.



The guards detained the man until police arrived and he was arrested for misdemeanour trespassing.



Sources told TMZ that Jenner is now considering moving out of the property but in the meantime, additional security measures have been put in place.



This is not the first time an intruder has breached security to enter Kendall Jenner's property. In 2018, an alleged stalker was found on the grounds twice. Then in 2017, there was a burglary at her previous home in Hollywood Hills, with $264,000 worth of jewellery stolen.



This incident comes one day after a California judge granted Jenner a temporary restraining order against another man her legal team claim wanted to gun her down.



Legal documents obtained by TMZ revealed Jenner was told of the man's plans to kill her after buying an illegal firearm. He is currently being held on temporarily in the psychiatric ward of an LA hospital.



In the docs, Jenner said his alleged threats were "causing her severe emotional distress and anxiety", so the judge has ruled the man must stay 100 metres away from the star.]]>

Teenager certified dead wakes up as his organs are about to be donated http://nairaplace.com//3294/teenager-certified-dead-wakes-up-as-his-organs-are-about-to-be-donated.html


Family members were told Lewis Roberts, 18, was brain dead four days after the crash in Leek, Staffordshire, England, according to StokeonTrentLive.



His life support machine was to be turned off and his relatives agreed for his organs to be donated to help save other lives.



Fortunately, this bought the teen extra time on the life support machine as they needed it on until they could go in for surgery to remove his organs.



Miraculously, he began to breathe hours before the surgery to remove his organs.

Chloe Roberts, said in an online fundraiser for Lewis: "On March 13, Lewis suffered catastrophic head injuries when he was struck by a van in his hometown of Leek and was flown to hospital where he underwent emergency surgery.

"Four days later, the doctors broke the news to our family that nothing more could be done as he had unfortunately suffered a 'brain stem death' and sadly passed away.



"After saying our goodbyes to Lewis, close family bravely agreed for his organs to be donated to help the lives of seven other people.



"This bought Lewis extra time before his life support machine was turned off. Just hours before Lewis' surgery, he began to breathe again on his own. A miracle any family could wish for after being told he had zero chance of pulling through.



"After this Lewis has carried on progressing. He has started to react to pain tests, moving his limbs on his own, and also moving his head from side to side, blinking and also moving his mouth. Every day, this boy is getting stronger.



"Many people have asked to send money for a pint for Lewis. Any money that is sent will be for Lewis when he is home and back on his feet.



"We would just like to say, as a family, thank you so much and we are very grateful for everyone's prayers and best wishes for Lewis."



More than £1,000 has already been raised for the 18-year-old through the 'A Pint for Lewis' online appeal.

Dozens of ambulance vehicles were rushed to the scene of the crash, which took place in the southern province of Sohag, said a statement by Egypt’s heath ministry.

Local media displayed videos from the scene showing flipped wagons with passengers trapped inside and surrounded by rubble. Some victims seemed unconscious, while others could be seen bleeding. Bystanders carried bodies, laying them out on the ground near the site of the accident.

Egypt’s railway system has a history of badly maintained equipment and poor management. Official figures show that 1,793 train accidents took place in 2017 across the country.

In 2018, a passenger train derailed near the southern city of Aswan, injuring at least six people and prompting authorities to fire the chief of the country’s railways.

In the same year, President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said the government lacks about 250 billion Egyptian pounds, or $14.1 billion, to overhaul the run-down rail system. El-Sissi spoke a day after a passenger train collided with a cargo train, killing at least 12 people, including a child.

A year earlier, two passenger trains collided just outside the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria, killing 43 people. In 2016, at least 51 people were killed when two commuter trains collided near Cairo.

Egypt’s deadliest train crash took place in 2002, when over 300 people were killed when fire erupted in speeding train traveling from Cairo to southern Egypt.]]>

Uganda Police arrest suspected serial killer who strangled four young women to death and burnt their http://nairaplace.com//3277/uganda-police-arrest-suspected-serial-killer-who-strangled-four-young-women-to-death-and-burnt-their


The suspect identified as Musa Musaasizi, alias, Uncle, was arrested by detectives on Wednesday, March 24.



The suspect, a resident of Mujomba Zone 6, Nakulabye in Rubaga Division, Kampala City, allegedly had sexual intercourse with all the four women before he strangled them, burnt their bodies and later dumped them in isolated areas in the same division.

The Director of Crime Intelligence, Brig Christopher Ddamulira, who confirmed the arrest on Thursday, said the suspect admitted to the killings and is cooperating with detectives to identify the victims and where the killings happened.



"We arrested him and we have handed him over to Old Kampala Police Station for further processing and visiting the crime scenes,” Brig Ddamulira said.


Four victims have been identified by the police but security agencies have given only two names who are both residents of Makerere Kikoni. These are Elizabeth Mutesi, 21, and Mackline Ahereza, 21, who was killed on February 23, 2021.

Ahereza was killed in Kikoni and her body transported to Nateete, which is around 10km away, burnt and dumped there.



The identification of one of the killed women enabled a joint security team comprising the Police Directorate of Crime Intelligence and Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence investigators to reconstruct the last moments and movements of the deceased.

A security source said they used a combination of technology systems acquired under CCTV camera project to know the people the deceased women talked to and areas they visited. The data zeroed in on Musaasizi.



The source said using the same system, the security agents tracked and arrested Musaasizi.
Upon interrogation, Musaasizi admitted to killing the women and has an account of each them and the baby.



He has since been taken to Mwanga II Magistrates Court where he recorded an extra judicial statement with a judicial officer.

Musaasizi told detectives that on February 22, he killed Aheereza, whom he says was his girlfriend, on suspicion of having an extramarital affair. He told detectives that he strangled her in his rented house in Nakulabye before putting the body in a suitcase.



He then hired an unsuspecting boda boda rider who took him to Kobil Petrol Station Nakulabye where he bought paraffin in a five-litre jerrycan before continuing to Stone View at Nateete.



Near Stone View, he alighted from the boda boda with his suitcase but told the rider to wait for him on the main road. After a short distance, he opened the suitcase, lit the body, he told detectives. He boarded the motorcycle back to his home.



On March 13, the suspect told detectives he was with his girlfriend only identified as Kansiime in the house when she started communicating with other men on the phone.



He said he had fallen in love with Kansiime while she was pregnant for another man. He claimed that Kansiime’s boyfriend had abandoned her. Kansiime later gave birth and they stayed in a relationship.



Musaasizi said he was annoyed that Kansiime would talk to other men yet he was caring for her. On March 13, Kansiime with her three-month old baby paid Musaasizi a visit and he strangled them to death.



He told detectives that he first put the baby’s body in a bag, before taking it to Makerere-Kivulu and dumping it near the National Housing building. He bought paraffin at the petrol station before returning to his home to wait for curfew time to dump Kansiime’s body.



At around 2am, he, with the help of others, dumped the body of Kansiime near Kasubi Tombs where he doused it with paraffin and lit the fire.



Three days later, he killed another woman only identified as Noreen. He reportedly strangled her and dumped the body near Kasubi Tombs. However, this time he burnt the body with petrol.



Musaasizi doesn’t give detectives clear reasons why he killed Noreen ut blames an evil spirit that attacked and ordered him to end her life.



On March 16, Musaasizi asked Mutesi to visit him at home to which she accepted.
Mutesi is said to have visited at around 9pm. He said Mutesi asked for Shs50,000 to plait her hair which he gave her and then they had sex. Later, Mutesi told him that he wanted to go back to her home. Musaasizi said he strangled her to death.



He kept the body inside the house until deep in the night when he took it far away from his home where he burnt it. He said all mobile phones of the victims were thrown in the pit latrine at his rented home in Nakulabye.



Criminal Investigations Directorate spokesperson Charles Twiine said detectives are still searching Musaasizi’s home and all other areas where he claims to have killed his victims.]]>

Thierry Henry to quit social media until the platforms tackle online abuse http://nairaplace.com//3275/thierry-henry-to-quit-social-media-until-the-platforms-tackle-online-abuse.html

The former Arsenal and France captain made the announcement on his social media platforms on Friday, March 26 after so many black footballers including Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling and Tyrone Mings complained about racist abuse they receive on social media.


Henry says social media companies such as Twitter and Instagram are not doing all they can to prevent racism on their platforms and he will not return to social media until a change has been made.


Henry wrote: "Hi Guys.


"From tomorrow morning I will be removing myself from social media until the people in power are able to regulate their platforms with the same vigour and ferocity that they currently do when you infringe copyright.


"The sheer volume of racism, bullying and resulting mental torture to individuals is too toxic to ignore. There HAS to be some accountability.


"It is far too easy to create an account, use it to bully and harrass without consequence and still remain anonymous.


"Until this changes, I will be disabling my accounts across all social platforms. I'm hoping this happens soon."

Last July, Henry made a statement by taking a knee for the first eight minutes and 46 seconds of a match against New England Revolution.


He also showed solidarity following the death of George Floyd, who died early 2020 after a Minnesota police officer pressed his knee on his neck for the same amount of time as Henry knelt.


He also explained the abuse he received after moving to the New York Red Bulls in an interview last year.


"At one point, I said people didn't see my colour any more because I played football, because I was, in brackets, famous," Henry said.



"When I came to play in the US, my colour came back because no one could recognise me, depending on which state we were in. My colour came back. It was the first time again that I felt like I left my neighbourhood.


"When I arrived in New York, some people could recognise me and some couldn't.


"When you ask for a cab, he looks and sees you are a certain colour and puts the light on and suddenly he isn't free any more. You're left like, 'Hang on I'm alone here'. It hit me again."]]>

The trio, Afekhai Aliu, Felix Victor, and James Blessing Anne were slapped with a six-count charge bordering on obtaining by false pretence.

One of the counts reads. "James Blessings Anne, Felix Victor and Afekhai Aliu Obaadugbo on or about the 10th of December, 2018 at Benin with the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court with intent to defraud obtained the sum of N216,000 (Two Hundred and Sixteen Thousand Naira) as part payment for two vehicles from Ikhaigbode Jimoh Oya who you represented yourselves to as Custom Officers in charge of the auction of confiscated vehicles at Idiroko capable of selling a Lexus 350 and Mercedes ML 350 SUV to him, which representation you knew to be false and thereby committed an offence"



The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to them.



In view of their pleas, the prosecution counsel, Moses Arumemi prayed the court to fix a date for trial and to remand the defendants in custody. However, the defence counsel, S. O. Osazuwa prayed the court to grant his clients bail as the alleged offence was bailab?e.

Super Eagles to travel to Benin Republic by boat ahead of must win AFCON qualifiers http://nairaplace.com//3268/super-eagles-to-travel-to-benin-republic-by-boat-ahead-of-must-win-afcon-qualifiers.html

Ahead of their penultimate 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game in Porto Novo, on Saturday March 27, the Super Eagles players who are currently camped in Eko Hotel, Lagos, will leave Nigeria to Benin using the country's waterways.


After much debate and consideration amongst the NFF officials, citing security issues and time distance, the Federation have agreed to use boat instead of air or road transport to go to Benin.


The travel will occur a day before Saturday’s clash at the Charles de Gaulle Stadium in Benin.


Gernot Rohr’s men will be expected to return to Lagos by Sunday for their final Afcon qualifying fixture against Lesotho at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.


Earlier this month, the President of the Nigeria Football Federation Amaju Pinnick said the FA was going to abandon plans to fly to Benin and seriously consider going by boat and that they were in talks with the Lagos State Government.


"Going to Cotonou by boat, I do that all the time when we were going to inspect, we did it, there's nothing wrong in exploring other forms of adventure in Nigeria,” Pinnick said .


"There's nobody in Lagos that has not been to Ilashe or been to Tarkwa Bay, so it's the same thing, so what's the big deal?


"Look at the Lagos boat terminal, it's one of the best in the world that I've seen, so why don't we use all those things if we have them?



Nigeria lead the Group L table after picking up eight points from four matches while Benin trail the three-time African champions by just a point in second spot.

Speaking at a security summit held at the National Defence College in Abuja on Monday March 21, the Minister stated that the fight against insecurity can be won when security agencies collaborate.

“This summit is coming at a sobering time in the life of our dear nation — a time when merchants of violence are threatening to tear the very foundations of our nation; a time when diverse manifestations of security threats dot the landscape and impact individuals, communities and almost all sub-national entities in disconcerting ways; a time when fear and uncertainty pervades the land; a time when global indicators of national insecurity give room for serious concern."]]>

Wife bites off husband's pen!s while accusing him of cheating (photos) http://nairaplace.com//3255/wife-bites-off-husband-s-pen-s-while-accusing-him-of-cheating-photos-.html


Asifa Nakagolo, 38, bit her husband, Bashir Mukaire's penis off in an act of revenge after she found out he stayed overnight at his second wife's house in Uganda.



Asifa, who is pregnant, sank her teeth into her husband’s penis after he returned from a night out in Bugweri District, Eastern Uganda on Wednesday, March 17.



She reportedly believed Bashir had been "cheating" on her with his second wife, who is also expecting a child.



Mr Mukaire, a father of nine, is now fighting for his life, police claim, after his penis "died off" before it could be re-attached.



The 45-year-old is believed to be suffering from a "major tear" to his "genitals".

He said: "My second wife is an expectant mother, the reason why I slept there and returned to Nakagolo in the morning. Upon seeing me, she charged and gnawed into my genitals causing a major tear."



After the attack, a neighbour called an ambulance after telling the couple Mukaire would bleed to death if he doesn't see a medic.



Mr. Suna, who is treating Mr Mukaire, said the 45-year-old will not "be able to have sex for the rest of his life."



The medic added that he will also be "urinating via a catheter for the rest of his life."



He said: "His penis can’t be re-attached because it ‘died off; so to speak before it could get to the hospital. This man will not be able to have sex for the rest of his life.



"This man will be urinating via a catheter for the rest of his life according to injuries he sustained."

Samuel Aruwan, Commissioner Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, who confirmed the incident in a statement on Monday, March 22, said 34 others were injured and are now receiving treatment in a hospital.



According to Aruwan, the crash, which occurred late on Sunday evening, March 21, involved a commercial DAF trailer and was caused by a combination of speeding, and an exploding tyre, leading to a loss of control, which caused the vehicle to veer into the bush.

"A total of fifty-three (53) people were involved in the crash; 16 of these died on the spot, with three others later confirmed dead. Thirty-four (34) sustained injuries which ranged from bruises and cuts to dislocations and head injuries. They were evacuated from the scene by personnel of the Federal Road Safety Corps. The survivors are receiving treatment in hospital," he said.



Officials of the Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, visited the site of the crash to ascertain the report of events and avoid misrepresentations of the incident.



According to Auwal Idris, the driver, most of the passengers on board the ill-fated trailer were picked at Kara, by a filling station in Lagos, with some to be dropped off at Zaria, while Kano was meant to be the final destination.



Aruwan said Governor Nasir El-Rufai expressed shock and sadness at the report, and prayed for the repose of the souls of those who perished in the crash, while sending condolences to their families. He also wished the injured victims a speedy recovery.



The Governor commended the personnel of the Federal Road Safety Corps for their swift response, and prompt evacuation of the casualties from the scene.



He enjoined drivers on the route to exercise caution at all times and avoid potentially dangerous driving practices like speeding.]]>

Final year female student killed in church building collapse http://nairaplace.com//3245/final-year-female-student-killed-in-church-building-collapse.html


Asimwe was due to graduate on July 2, 2021, with a Bachelor of Human Resource Management, having sat for her final exams in January.


The deceased suffered injuries when a ceiling of an auditorium collapsed on her and other congregants at the House of Rest Church at Fido Dido building in Kampala during lunch hour prayers on Monday, March 15.



She breathed her last on Tuesday while at Mulago National Referral Hospital where she had been rushed for treatment after the incident.



Asimwe was laid to rest on Wednesday, March 17, at Kangulumira in Kayunga District where family members and friends lauded her for her generosity.

“She was set to graduate on July 2, at our next graduation ceremony. So as UCU, we shall award her with a posthumous degree,” Mr Frank Obonyo, the UCU communications and marketing manager, said.



Mr Emmanuel Opolot, a cousin of the deceased, described her as a jolly person, charming and jovial budding entrepreneur.


Mr Opolot revealed that the deceased had been employed as sales agent with a local beverage company and fended for the family.



"She was a very jolly person and a sister who would always send me a message every morning to check on me. She has been a source of joy to us as a family,” Mr Opolot said.



"Being the first born, we had a lot of hope in her. Even when she was a lively person, she was also a responsible citizen because she had a small business of Chupa ku Chupa from which she would earn a living and also support her sisters. Chupa ku Chupa was a deal she had endorsed with beverage distributors to promote their brands, Mr Opolot said.



Ms Molly Kangume, a colleague who shared class with the deceased since 2017 when they both enrolled at UCU, described Asimwe’s passing as a shock, since she had been at a social event with friends the previous day.



“I got the news through her best friend. It was so shocking because at the weekend, she was out with her friends and even posted everything on her Facebook status,” Ms Kangume said. ]]>

Crying child found wandering alone on a deserted road in Bayelsa http://nairaplace.com//3243/crying-child-found-wandering-alone-on-a-deserted-road-in-bayelsa.html


The girl, who identified herself as Jennifer Alex was spotted crying by a commercial tricycle driver on Thursday, March 18.



According to Dienita Jackson Daniel, who posted the report on Facebook, the driver took the child to Otuoke but he couldn't locate her parents.



The girl is currently at Ekeki Police Station. If anyone has any useful information about her parents, please contact the station.

Read Dienita Jackson Daniel's post below...



"Please this child named, JENNIFER ALEX was found close to Otuoke Community in Ogbia Local Government Area by a Tricycle Operator (Keke Driver) around 5pm on Thursday 18th March, 2021. She was crying and walking along the lonely road between Onuebum and Otuoke.



The Keke Driver named Saidu Yusuf saw her crying and stopped to ask why she was alone crying in the bush part of the road. She couldn't explain herself but pointed toward Otuoke so he took the child to Otuoke but unfortunately he couldn't find her parents. He actually tried his best to help find her parents but no headway so he decided to take her to a media house.



Of all the questions we asked her she was able to mention her name, 'JENNIFER" father's name "ALEX"and her mother's name "PRECIOUS". When we asked about her Community and where she lives she repeatedly mentioned something similar to Ayamasa, but she can't speak Ijaw, Ogbia, Epie or any of the major languages spoken in Nigeria. Anytime you asks her about where she stays she repeatedly mentions that name similar to Ayamasa but i doubt if it is the AYAMASA in Ekeremor LGA.



The Keke Driver and i later took her to the Ekeki Police Division. So please, if you know her parents or any of her relatives kindly direct them to the Ekeki Police Division.]]>

The barber identified as Emmanuel Chipepetseki a.k.a Chipaz, was caught red-handed in the act on March 15.



It was gathered that on the day of the incident, the taxi driver Andrew called his wife informing her that he was not coming back home as he had secured business at the border town. His wife then reportedly made arrangements with Chipaz to come to her place and spend the night.



Andrew who reportedly had a change of mind and canceled his trip, showed up at his place in the middle of the night unannounced and caught his wife and Chipaz in their bedroom having sex.



Chipaz managed to escape and disappeared into the dark even though Andrew unconvered who he was.



The next day, Andrew gathered his friends and began a manhunt for Chipaz who was found relaxed at his house near Neshuro Growth Point. The taxi driver and his friends bundled Chipaz into their car and took him to the growth point where they thoroughly bashed him.



To save himself, Chipaz pulled a death act prompting his attackers to retreat. Realizing that there was a window to escape, Chipaz bolted away to safety.]]>

Housewife who bleeds from her eyes during her period baffles doctors http://nairaplace.com//3238/housewife-who-bleeds-from-her-eyes-during-her-period-baffles-doctors.html


The 25-year-old woman from Chandigarh, India, was diagnosed with haemolacria after seeking help for the condition at the city’s Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Dailystar reports.



Haemolacria is a physical condition that causes a person to produce tears that are partially composed of blood.



Dr Soumitra Ghosh, who documented the case in a new study, said: "Haemolacria means bloody tears. Patients will have blood coming out from one or both eyes.

"Blood coming out with tears is a very alarming clinical entity both for the patient and physician. If you see blood coming out from the eyes, you can imagine how scary a situation it is.



"Haemolacria is a rare clinical condition. It has multiple causes. One of the causes is vicarious menstruation.



"Vicarious menstruation is defined as cyclical bleeding in other extrauterine organs like the nose, eyes, ears, intestine, lungs, nipples and skin.



"Haemolacria due to vicarious menstruation is very, very rare. Only a few cases have been reported in the medical literature so far."



The exact cause of the condition is uncertain, but doctors think the fact that the patient was menstruating at the time could be important.



Dr Gosh explained how the condition appears to be the eyes' blood vessels responding to hormonal changes in the body.

He continued: "Certain ocular and orbital tissues are seen to be hormonally responsive.



"Oestrogen and progesterone can increase the permeability of the capillaries resulting in hyperemia, congestion and secondary bleeding from extrauterine tissue."



The patient was treated with oral oestrogen-progesterone contraceptive pills (combined pill).



On her three month follow-up, the patient was on these pills and she’d had no repeat of the episode.

I regret supporting the Buhari presidency - Dino Melaye http://nairaplace.com//3236/i-regret-supporting-the-buhari-presidency-dino-melaye.html


Back in 2015, Dino was a member of APC and he campaigned for President Buhari. Melaye was among those that canvassed support for Buhari’s presidential ambition, having dumped the PDP for the ruling APC.



Dino has since defected to PDP and has continued to show his disdain for the APC and the Buhari-led administration.



In an interview with Channels TV on Friday March 19, Dino asked God and Nigerians for forgiveness.

''I apologise to God almighty who is the supreme controller of the universe and Nigerians for supporting Buhari.

The Buhari agenda is the greatest scam that came out of Africa. The Buhari presidency in 2015 is the greatest scam that came out of Africa.

The subject Buhari is the greatest common that came out of Africa. Once I was blind, now I can see. How can one remain in a political party and support the presidency with what is happening today in Nigeria?

"Armie Hammer raped me for over 4 hours" 24-year-old woman accuses American actor http://nairaplace.com//3234/-armie-hammer-raped-me-for-over-4-hours-24-year-old-woman-accuses-american-actor.html


In a virtual press conference organized by her attorney, Gloria Allred, the 24-year-old woman identified as Effie Angelova claimed that Hammer "abused me mentally, emotionally, and sexually."



Effie went on to describe an alleged incident on April 24, 2017, when she claimed Hammer "violently raped her for over four hours in Los Angeles, during which he repeatedly slammed her head against a wall, bruising my face."



Effie further claimed she "tried to get away but he wouldn’t let her" during the 2017 incident.



"I thought that he was going to kill me," she said.

Effie said she met Hammer over Facebook in 2016 when she was 20 years old, and said their "relationship progressed rapidly."



"He would often test my devotion to him, slyly removing and crossing my boundaries, as he became increasingly more violent," Effie said.



Effie said that after the alleged 2017 incident, she "lived in fear" of him.



"For a long time, I tried to dismiss his actions towards me as a twisted form of love," she continued.



Effie said she stayed in touch with Hammer through 2020. She additionally described bouts of crying, night terrors, and flashbacks that "were so excruciating, they made me feel there was no way out but to take her own life."



Effie's lawyer, Allred, said that her client "does have evidence which she believes supports her serious allegations," and confirmed Effie gave the evidence to police.



However, Hammer has denied the claims.



Hammer’s lawyer, Andrew Brettler, referred to the claims as "outrageous allegations".



Brettler said in a statement thats "all of" Hammer’s interactions with Effie, "have been completely consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutually participatory."

Man shows off three used condom he allegedly found in his wife's car http://nairaplace.com//3233/man-shows-off-three-used-condom-he-allegedly-found-in-his-wife-s-car.html


Hardlife Ndlovu who has been married to Amanda Moyo for just a year, said he made the unpleasant discovery last year while looking for some documents in his wife’s car.



He alleged that his wife regularly insults him, threatens him with death and even locks him out of the house when she goes to work.



Hardlife also claimed that his wife who is a money changer who operates near Tredgold Court, returns home late and intoxicated despite knowing that she would have left him locked out of the house.



The man made the claim at Bulawayo Magistrates’ Court Civil Division, where he applied for a protection order against his wife who he claims is unruly. He said in court;



“I’m having problems with my wife Amanda Moyo. She locks me outside the house. And I sleep outside the house.

“When I knock at the door, she insults me and threatens to kill me.

“She comes home in the early hours of the morning very drunk. When I ask her where she would’ve been, she gets angry, insults me and threatens to kill me."



B-Metro reported that Hardlife's protection order application was struck off in court after he surprisingly failed to pursue the case. In an ironic development, his wife Amanda has now filed her own protection order against him.

Arewa youths give Yoruba indigenes 72 hours to leave Northern region http://nairaplace.com//3232/arewa-youths-give-yoruba-indigenes-72-hours-to-leave-northern-region.html


The group gave the ultimatum while reacting to the statement credited to Sunday Igboho on Wednesday, March 18 where he said the time had come for the actualization of the Yoruba Nation.



Sahara Reporters quoted Igboho as saying



"Starting from now, we don't want herdsmen in our land to disturb our farms again. If we meet any killer herdsmen, we are going to face and destroy them.

If any police attack us for that, we are ready for them. We don't want Nigeria again, but Yoruba nation. There is no essence for one Nigeria when major resources in the country are in the hands of the northerners.

Enough is enough, no going back… we are not scared of anybody; these killer herders are taking over our land and they are killing us''



Reacting to Igboho's statement, the Northern youth group in a statement released by its speaker, Mohammed Salihu Danlami, asked Igboho to move all Yorubas from the North within 72 hours.

"One Mr. Sunday Igboho issued a press statement in which he was quoted as saying enough is enough; that the time for Yoruba nation is now, that they will no longer accommodate and accept the presence of Northerners.

The constitution of the country has made it crystal clear that any Nigerian can live in any part of the country, irrespective of his or her religious and tribal placements.

We are hereby giving him the ultimatum of 72 hours to move his people out or we will be forced to take necessary actions by personally taking the responsibility of getting his people back home," the statement read in part



The Northern group said that it still affirms its position as a law-abiding civil youth organization, adding that it would not fold its arm and watch innocent Nigerians being threatened by individuals who have no regard and respect for the law.

Recounting how the incident occurred, her uncle said;



“Hours after she was declared missing, we received two different text messages, the first one was a threat not to call the girl’s number again and the second one was sent to her younger brother requesting to put her in their prayers as the other lady who was allegedly kidnapped together had been killed.

“We have not received any message again as her number is not going through. We are only praying to Allah Almighty to reveal anyone that has a hand in this kidnapping."



However the police busted the staged act days after. Kano police spokesperson, DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa revealed that the lady went into hiding because she did not want the wedding to hold.

“I don’t love the guy, that is why I took that decision… Although I was the one that showed him to my parents."

Nigeria ranks 16th on FBI's list of countries worst affected by internet crimes http://nairaplace.com//3222/nigeria-ranks-16th-on-fbi-s-list-of-countries-worst-affected-by-internet-crimes.html


The State-specific statistics which can be found within the 2020 Internet Crime Report and in the accompanying 2020 State Reports, includes information from 791,790 complaints of suspected internet crime, an increase of more than 300,000 complaints from 2019. The reported losses also exceeded $4.2 billion.

Nigeria and South Africa were listed among the ‘worst’ 20. South Africa was rated sixth with 1,754 victims while Nigeria had 443 victims. Countries like Pakistan, China, Columbia, and Hong Kong ranked better than Nigeria.



The top 20 countries: 1. United Kingdom; 2. Canada; 3. India; 4. Greece; 5. Australia; 6. South Africa; 7. France; 8. Germany; 9. Mexico; 10. Belgium; 11. Brazil; Philippines; 13. Italy; 14. Spain; 15. Netherlands; 16. Nigeria; 17. Pakistan; 18. China; 19. Colombia; 20. Hong Kong .



Phishing scams, non-payment/non-delivery scams and extortion were the top three crimes reported by victims in 2020, and it was also learnt that victims lost the most money to business email compromise scams, romance and confidence schemes, and investment fraud.



There was also the emergence of scams exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic. The IC3 received over 28,500 complaints related to COVID-19, with fraudsters targeting both businesses and individuals.

The IC3’s 2020 Internet Crime Report contains information about the most prevalent internet scams affecting the public and offers guidance for prevention and protection. It also highlights the FBI’s work combating internet crime, including recent case examples.



The IC3 received a record number of complaints from Americans in 2020: 791,790, with reported losses exceeding $4.1 billion. The figure represents a 69% increase in total complaints from 2019.



The FBI noted that Business E-mail Compromise (BEC) schemes continued to be the costliest. There were 19,369 complaints with an adjusted loss of approximately $1.8 billion.



Phishing scams had 241,342 complaints, with adjusted losses of over $54 million, while the number of ransomware incidents also continues to rise, with 2,474 incidents reported in 2020.


Through the Recovery Asset Team, IC3 worked with its partners to successfully freeze approximately $380 million of the $462 million in reported losses in 2020, nearly 82%. In addition.



The FBI stated that it released the 2020 Internet Crime Report to remind the public to immediately report suspected criminal internet activity to the IC3 at ic3.gov. The American agency added that by reporting internet crime, victims are not only alerting law enforcement to the activity but aiding in the overall fight against cybercrime.]]>

Spokesperson for the department, Singabakho Nxumalo who confirmed the authenticity of the video said the flustering scenes of alleged sexual activity between an official and an inmate at the Ncome Correctional Centrehas left the agency appalled, embarrassed and gutted.



He said in a statement;



“A video with flustering scenes of alleged sexual activity between an official and an inmate at the Ncome Correctional Centre, KwaZulu-Natal Region, has left the Department of Correctional Services appalled, embarrassed and gutted.

“Sexual activities between inmates and correctional officials are shameful incidents that can never be ascribed to what is expected of our officials.

“Correctional officials are expected to abide by a code of conduct, and despicable acts of sexual activities with inmates shall never be tolerated."



Nxumalo further revealed that the female warder involved has been identified and she will be subjected to a disciplinary process with immediate effect.



He added;



"Disciplinary measures have also been instituted against the inmate. Despicable acts of sexual activities with inmates shall never be tolerated."



In January, the department of correctional services said it was installing body scanners at identified correctional facilities within six management areas in an effort to clamp down on the smuggling of contraband into prisons.



Justice and Correctional Services Minister Ronald Lamola said the body scanners were introduced after an official was caught at St Albans Correctional Centre in the Eastern Cape trying to smuggle contraband.

Police Redeploy Zamfara DPO For ‘working With Bandits http://nairaplace.com//3207/police-redeploy-zamfara-dpo-for-working-with-bandits.html
The state, despite the peace agreement it signed with bandits, has suffered series of attacks from the criminal elements.

Mohammed Shehu, the command’s public relations officer, in a statement on Monday, said no formal complaints have been lodged against the unnamed DPO.

He, however, asked members of the public to assist the police in its investigation by contacting the command with credible evidence against the DPO .

“The attention of the Zamfara State Police Command has been drawn to a viral video trending on social media platforms wherein the communities of Kungurki village, in Kaura Namoda LGA, accused the DPO of Kaura Namoda Division of conniving with recalcitrant armed bandits who were making life unbearable for the people,” he said.

“Available records at the command revealed no formal complaint against the DPO in respect of the allegation.

“However, the command enjoins members of the public, especially the aggrieved community, that any person or group with credible evidence against the DPO, should come to the Police Command Headquarters and assist in the ongoing investigation.

“The DPO, as a custodian of peace and tranquility, has the mandate to interact and engage with the two warring Hausa and Fulani bandit communities to a dialogue so as to strengthen the ongoing peace process of the state government.”

But he said Abutu Yaro, the state commissioner of police, has immediately redeployed the DPO to the police command headquarters as OC provost, while Umar Abdullahi, assistant commissioner of police, has been appointed as acting DPO of the Division.

Shehu called on members of the public with credible evidence against the former DPO to contact the acting DPO through his phone number– 08162793939.]]>

LGBTQ community react to Vatican new's order for priests not to bless gay marriages http://nairaplace.com//3206/lgbtq-community-react-to-vatican-new-s-order-for-priests-not-to-bless-gay-marriages.html


On Monday, March 15, the Vatican's doctrinal office, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), issued the ruling in response to questions and moves in some parishes to impart such blessings as a sign of welcome to gay Catholics since the Church does not permit homosexual marriage.



Pope Francis approved the response, the CDF said, adding that it was "not intended to be a form of unjust discrimination, but rather a reminder of the truth of the liturgical rite".



It said such blessings were not permissible even though they were "motivated by a sincere desire to welcome and accompany homosexual persons" and help them grow in the faith.



The CDF note said that since marriage between a man and a woman was a sacrament and blessings are related to the sacrament of marriage, they could not be extended to same-sex couples.



"For this reason, it is not licit to impart a blessing on relationships, or partnerships, even stable, that involve sexual activity outside of marriage (i.e., outside the indissoluble union of a man and a woman open in itself to the transmission of life), as is the case of the unions between persons of the same sex," it said.



The order is now attracting criticism from members and supporters of the LGBTQ community on Twitter.

Grandma terrified after seeing 'demon' standing over toddler's bed (photos) http://nairaplace.com//3205/grandma-terrified-after-seeing-demon-standing-over-toddler-s-bed-photos-.html


Tory McKenzie, 41, set up a motion-activated camera at her son's house after complaints his two-year-old daughter, Amber McKenzie, was talking to an unseen person in the middle of the night.

The grandma checked her camera's app four days later to find an image of a creature standing close to the sleeping child and her seven-month-old brother Michael McKenzie.



The grandma said the creature had "a horn on its head and long claws".

The creature was captured standing awkwardly, looking upwards just before 3am.



Tory says the discovery has left her fearing for her grandchildren's lives.



When she tried to rid the house of the "evil presence" by burning oils, she claims cabinets and curtains opened and closed and music began to play by itself.



Tory, a mother-of-five from Las Vegas, Nevada, shared her story via a paranormal Facebook page to ask for advice.



People were horrified and warned her to sell the house as they agreed the creature looked demonic.



Some said the photo is fake and the grandma hit back, insisting she just wants to protect her family and does not have the technical knowhow to have changed the image.



The family have recorded orbs floating around the children's bedroom, but the new image, captured in January 2021, has caused their father Ryan to take Amber and Michael out of their room and into his.

Grandma Tory said: "It was so shocking when I saw it. I had to do a double take. The first thing I saw was horns on its head, so you immediately think it's the devil or a demon.



"When we caught videos of the orbs we thought it was a family member looking after the kids, but that picture, I have no idea. It's terrifying.



"I showed the kids and my 13-year-old son was scared by it. I ran over to the house and showed my eldest son. We were just in shock and he couldn't explain it either.



"Everybody was asleep, so it couldn't have been my son or his partner. We have still shots of him in there and it looks nothing like that. I know that it's something supernatural.

"Ryan has moved the kids out of their room and into his room. Nothing bad has happened to them yet, but it's the fact that it could.



"The two-year-old isn't scared of [the figure] and thinks it's her friend, but one night she told it to 'go away'.



"For the most part everybody's been supportive, suggesting what to do and who to speak to. I just want to get rid of whatever it is.



"I'm not that talented when it comes to technology to fake the photo, and I didn't share it on my own page so it's not like I was trying to get attention from it."



Tory says the two-bed condo is only around 20 years old, so she's surprised it would harbour such a dark presence.



Tory, a cardiologist lives with her four other children Jonathan McKenzie, 19, Melissa McKenzie, 17, Travis McKenzie, 16, and Nicholas McKenzie, 13, a few minutes' walk away from Ryan and his partner Alicia Johnson.]]>

Prophet now impotent after being stabbed in the private part by a man http://nairaplace.com//3203/prophet-now-impotent-after-being-stabbed-in-the-private-part-by-a-man-.html


It was learnt that the incident occurred at Zananda Village under Chief Nhema’s area in Shurugwi, Midlands province, Zimbabwe.



B-Metro reported that Waraidzo Mapuranga was a frequent worshipper at a church owned by Richard Mbaya who is popularly known as Madzibaba Richy, before they became close.



Sunday Madamba who began suspecting his wife was having an affair with the Prophet, had an altercation with him after he came home unexpectedly and heard his wife moaning. A source told the publication;



“He first threw several punches to his wife and intensified his assaults with booted feet before he turned to Madzibaba Richy. He violently pulled him and kicked him all over the body before he struck him several times with a beer bottle on the head.

“And things took an even more sinister turn when he broke a beer bottle and used its pieces to stab Madzibaba Richy on his back and manhood."


It was also gathered that the Prophet has not had an erection since then and it is feared that the injuries might be permanent as he is also having trouble urinating.



Mapuranga who confirmed the incident, however debunked allegation of her getting caught having sex with Madzibaba Richy.



“What you heard is untrue. When my husband came home, he just found Madzibaba Richy in the house conducting some prayers. How can we have sex in the presence of the children? He was just incensed why I had invited him without his consent,” said Mapuranga before she hung up her phone.]]>

Woman caught breastfeeding a snake http://nairaplace.com//3202/woman-caught-breastfeeding-a-snake.html


The Manica Post reported that Gogo Nenohwe was spotted by a 12-year-old girl as she breastfed the snake while uttering names of fellow villagers whom she wanted her pet to deal with.



Following the allegation, the two elderly friends Gogo Savie Nenohwe and Gogo Ethel Sithole have been arraigned before a Chief Mutambara court on charges of witchcraft. The key witness narrated the incident in court on Saturday March 13.



She said;



“I saw Gogo Nenohwe breastfeeding a very big snake which had a red cloth and beads tied around it. After breastfeeding it, she took out a plate of food and fed the snake. I did not see what food she was feeding it, but I heard her muttering names of fellow villagers and telling the snake to deal with them."


It was alleged that after the young girl reported the incident to Gogo Sithole and realized that she was not taking any action, she told other villagers.



The village head, Molline Nenohwe who was subsequently notified of the incident then took the issue to Chief Mutambara. The two women were then summoned to the traditional leader’s court.



When Gogo Sithole was asked if she took any action after the minor brought the matter to her attention, she said she could not travel to the chief’s court to make a report. She said;



“I did not have money to bring the matter to your court. I also did not confront Nenohwe because I knew that once I confronted her, I would need to bring the matter before the chief’s court, yet I couldn’t do that at that moment."


Gogo Sithole’s niece, Maria also disclosed that she used to share a room with the snake. Maria said;



“I used to sleep in the room where Gogo Nenohwe was seen breastfeeding the snake. The snake stays in that room. I stopped using the room because of that and begged my aunt to move me to another room. Sometimes the snake comes out to bask in the sun."


Other villagers in Nenohwe Village also said they have come across a giant snake that has a red cloth tied around it. There are now efforts to capture the snake and bring it to the traditional ruler's court.



Gogo Nenohwe remained tight-lipped during the hearing and refused to entertain the media after the court session.]]>

They tied me like a common criminal''- Hoodlums beat up chief priest in Enugu http://nairaplace.com//3201/they-tied-me-like-a-common-criminal-hoodlums-beat-up-chief-priest-in-enugu.html


Vanguard reports that Eze was accused of stealing a staff of authority from another deity in the community, Ngwu Adoro Ero, about a year ago. Things took a dangerous dimension recently when the hoodlums who are suspected to be messengers of Ngwu Adoro Ero deity lured the suspect out of his home at about 9 pm on the pretense that they wanted him to perform an urgent sacrifice to his own Omaba Adoro deity to save a situation.



Speaking in an interview with Vanguard, Eze said he asked them to return the next morning since it was late in the night but they persuaded him. He said they beat him up and tied him like he was a common criminal.

“At that point, I reluctantly followed them without any iota of suspicion because we are all members of one community. When we got to the deity which I serve as the Chief Priest, I collected the kola nut, knelt down and started the sacrifice. After pouring the libation, having said a few prayers, I decided to sacrifice the goat which they brought.

It was at that point that one of them kicked out my hand from the rope tying the goat. Before I knew it, they all descended on me, hitting me hard from every angle. They tied me like a common criminal and took me to a forest, saying that I must tell them the whereabouts of the missing staff of Ngwu Adoro Ero deity.

When I told them that I have no knowledge of the whereabouts, one of them hit me on the chest and I fainted. At that point, they bundled me to a diviner’s place at a border community in Kogi State. When I regained consciousness, the diviner had drawn things with chalk on the floor. He told me I was responsible for the missing item. That was when I overheard the hoodlums saying they would push me inside Igabada River at Kogi State on our way home.

Early in the morning, they asked me to follow them home but I declined. They then planted an informant to alert them the moment I leave the diviner’s place. A little boy who heard them came to me, and pointing at a man who was sitting on a motorcycle at the gate, he told me that he was asked to monitor my movement. I stayed until 10 am and joined the market women in a commercial bus to return home.

I reported the incident to the Neighbourhood Watchmen in my community who informed the police and some of them were arrested and released after two days in detention. Their names include Onyebuchi Omeje, Chidera Ezema, Ejiofor Ezema, Chinonso Onah, Chinedu Omeje.

Others are Uwakwe Ugwuanyi, Emenike Ugwuoke, Abuchi Onah, Iloabuchi Ogbu and Ifediora Ngwu. “I want them to write an undertaking because I no longer feel safe. They equally harass people who come close to me.”


Confirming the incident, a security personnel in the community, Livinus Ngwu, said the hoodlums were arrested with some arms, including cutlass and machetes and Indian hemp. Ngwu equally told Vanguard that community elders have asked the deity who owns the missing item to punish the thief in his own way, adding that the hoodlums took laws into their hands by threatening to snuff life out of the Chief Priest.]]>

Man, 27, kills his girlfriend, 38, for allegedly refusing to quit prostitution http://nairaplace.com//3192/man-27-kills-his-girlfriend-38-for-allegedly-refusing-to-quit-prostitution.html


38-year-old grandmother, Chinyere Orji, was found last Monday, March 8, with a broken piece of mirror in the right side of her ribs at an apartment at 11, Abuja street, Alaba Rago, off Mile 2 Badagry expressway, Lagos.



She died before they could rush her to the hospital. Her boyfriend, Michael Ikechukwu, 27, was arrested and is currently at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department , SCIID, Yaba, from where he would be charged to court.



Speaking to Vanguard, Ikechukwu, from Ebonyi state, claimed he met Chinyere as a commercial sex worker at Apapa and they've known each other for three years and four months.



He said her death was an accident following an argument about her quitting prostitution.



The man, who hawks electronics accessories, told the publication; "She told me she wanted to go out that day. We went to TV line, stayed for about 10 minutes before she said she was going back home.



"By the time I went to meet her at home, I knocked but it took a long time for her to open the door.



"When she did, I asked if she was okay, she kept quiet. When I asked what the problem was, she got angry and started packing her things, saying she was leaving the house.



"When I asked where she was going, she said I shouldn’t ask her. I locked the door, preventing her from leaving.



"She started shouting at the top of her voice that I should open the door and that I should not ask her where she was going, since I knew she was a hustler.



"At that point, I started calming her down but she insisted on leaving. She said she was going to look for money. She started scattering everywhere, insisting she must leave. Out of provocation I slapped her and told her to re-arrange the room.



"In an attempt to scare her, I slammed the standing mirror on the ground and it shattered. Unfortunately, a piece pierced into her right rib and she started shouting that I had stabbed her."



Ikechukwu said he loved Chinyere, who has two children, a 21-year-old and a 9-year-old. Her 21-year-old daughter is married and has a child of her own.



He explained that though he met her as a prostitute, he was willing to marry her but she was reluctant to give up sex work.



He told Vanguard: "I met her at a drinking joint in Apapa, after hawking. We got talking and I invited her to my house at Alaba Rago.



"She had been living with me for three years. I knew she was a commercial sex worker but I accommodated her because I loved her.



"I never treated her like a prostitute by paying her anytime I had sex with her. But I gave her money for housekeep.



"I bought her cloths, gave her money to make her hair and also gave her pocket money. But she always complained it was not enough.



"I swear, I loved Chinyere. We had some things in common. For instance, she smoked like I do and she was into alcoholic drinks like me. Besides, she also satisfied me sexually, which is the main reason I loved her.



"While living with me, she usually went out at night to prostitute. I never met her at home when I came back from work. People taunted me about it but I still tolerated her because of the love I had for her.



"Last year, I told her to stop prostituting because I intended to marry her. She had two children of ages 21 and 9.



"Her first child is married with a baby, while the younger one lives with her aunt. Yet I didn’t mind spending the rest of my life with her .



"I never meant to kill her, I only wanted to prevent her from going out that night."



Spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the suspect would be charged to court.

"I was raped five times"- Nollywood Actress, Iyabo Ojo recalls sexual violence http://nairaplace.com//3191/-i-was-raped-five-times-nollywood-actress-iyabo-ojo-recalls-sexual-violence.html


She stated that she was first raped at the age of 14 but refused to tell anyone because it was like taboo to be raped at that time.



In her words


"I know a lot of ladies who have been through what I have been through. I feel it is time for me to talk to them and make them understand that it is okay to talk about it. To let them know that it is not okay to be in the situation.

Like I said, yes I have been raped before. Not once but five times. And trust me when I say it wasn't easy. The first time I was raped, I was 14. It happened at my aunty's house (not a family member). I didn't want to talk about it because it was taboo to talk about it. I felt I would be blamed for everything that happened.

And the second one, that was another terrible one that happened. And I still could not tell anybody in my family. I summoned a bit of courage to tell a friend of mine then and it was one of the reasons I ran away at a particular time. The whole family was looking for me and when they eventually found me, I still didn't talk about it.

Now, the third one, the guy was a neighbour. We were very close to each other. My dad's house and his house were the second or third street away in the same neighbourhood. He was a friend to my first boyfriend, though he was much older than him.

I never knew that he had such an intention. I grew up in the Obanikoro area of Lagos. I moved to Ikeja to stay with my aunty. However, I went to Obanikoro sometimes to check on my grandmother, dad, and boyfriend. On my way from Obanikoro going home, I was at the bus stop waiting for a taxi, then his car drove past me and he stopped.

We exchanged pleasantries. He asked me where I was going. I told him that I was going to Ikeja and he offered to drop me off. He said he had moved to Ikeja. When we got to Ikeja, he told me he lives in Toyin Street. I told him I know the street very well because I lived in Balogun Bus Stop in Ikeja. He said he should show me his house so that I could visit whenever I feel like it.

I didn't see any big deal in it because he was a friend to my ex, the first boyfriend then. When we got to his house, he had a rug, air-conditioner and television in the parlour. He suddenly said he was hungry and asked me if I was hungry too. I told him that I wasn't because I was already late and my aunty would be waiting for me.

He then said he had loved me even before Emmanuel met me and that when he found out I was going out with Emmanuel, he was heartbroken. At that time, I was almost 18 years old. He started trying to touch me. I got up angrily and made my way to the door. I noticed that it was locked. I told him to open the door. He told me that he loves me.

Then he started dragging me. That brought back memories of the experience I had been through that first time. So, it dawned on me that it was about to happen again. I didn't want it to so I wrestled with him. I tried to push him and ran into one of the rooms to open the window to scream but he pulled me back with my hair and then he held my neck to the wall.

I continued struggling and wrestling with him so he dragged me out of the room because he didn't want me to shout and gave me a dirty slap. I hit my head on the wall. I was a bit dizzy trying to find my feet and he went into the kitchen to get the knife. When he got the knife, his eyes went red and his face changed.

He wasn't the same person that I knew. It dawned on me that if I fight him, I will end up dead. Then he dragged me back into the room. I was just numb. He did whatever he wanted to do. When he was done, he went out and came back and started calling my name because I was still at the spot he raped me. Then he started calling me baby. That word baby was piercing my brain because I was mad.

You never get over it, but it gets to a stage in your life whereby it becomes a story to tell. You have to deal with it. I have been able to deal with it in my way because before, I can't talk about it. When I try to, I get so emotional, angry, and many other things come with it.

Right now, I can talk about it. So, after the kissing, he said he loved me and I told him that I loved him too. He went to drop me off at my bus stop. While walking down home, I could remember that I was just calm. I had no feelings or emotions. I got home and luckily my aunty wasn't around. I just went straight upstairs and climbed into the bathtub and just started crying.

I cried my heart out. Then I pondered about telling my ex-boyfriend. My ex-boyfriend was a bad boy and I wouldn't say I liked all the bad things he did. So I decided not to tell him because they might kill or do something terrible to him if I did. I didn't want that because I didn't want blood on my hands.

I don't know if what I did was right or wrong. So, the only way not to tell him was to break up with him. Then the other one happened after I got married to my husband and had my kids, then we moved to Ikeja. I was raped by one of the armed robbers who came to our house. It's not easy to talk about rape. No matter how much you talk about it, you have to realise that it is painful, but you are not alone."]]>

Buhari restates shoot on sight order for illegal possessors of AK-47 http://nairaplace.com//3185/buhari-restates-shoot-on-sight-order-for-illegal-possessors-of-ak-47.html


Buhari who explained how he gave the order in a meeting with the National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria at the State House, co-chaired by the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III and the Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi on Thursday March 11, stated that AK-47 is a registered weapon meant only for security operatives.



He added that despite government’s effort, small arms litter everywhere. Buhari said;



‘As a result of that, we had a four-hour meeting of the National Security Council attended by the Ministers of Internal Affairs, Defence, Foreign Affairs, Service Chiefs, Chief of Defence Staff, the Inspector-General of Police and others and we gave clear instructions.

‘‘One thing that got to the press which I read myself was that anyone with an AK-47 will be shot.

‘‘This is because AK-47 is supposed to be registered and it is only given to security officials.

‘‘We closed the borders for some years but the intelligence report I’m getting on a daily basis is that those who are conducting the abductions, the killings and so on are still not short of arms and ammunition."



Buhari appealed to the traditional leaders to deploy their reach and influence in the best interest of assisting the government to root out those whose sole objective remains to cause trouble and destruction of livelihoods and families across the nation. The president also expressed dismay on the attacks on police stations and killings of security personnel by criminals, warning that no investor will invest in a country that is unsafe.]]>

Lady allegedly beats 10-year-old househelp to death in Enugu http://nairaplace.com//3181/lady-allegedly-beats-10-year-old-househelp-to-death-in-enugu.html


Rights activist, Gwamnishu Emefiena Harrison alleged that the househelp was brutally tortured and died before arriving the hospital for treatment on February 16. He also claimed that there is a plan to cover up the househelp's death.



Gwamnishu wrote;



THEY WANT TO COVER UP HER DEATH.

She was brutally tortured and she died before arriving the hospital for treatment on 16th February, 2021.

Madam Nmesoma is detained at SCID Awka and as usual, the police have refused to charge Madam Nmesoma to court for murder. She was brutally tortured and she died before arriving the hospital for treatment on 16th February, 2021.

The poor girl died in the hand of a woman who ought to take her as her own child. With bruises all over her body, multiple stabs on her back, a child died with pain.

DEMAND THAT ANAMBRA STATE GOVERNMENT AND ANAMBRA POLICE COMMAND CHARGE MADAM NMESOMA FOR MURDER..

DEMAND THAT POLICE DESIST FROM COLLECTING BAIL AND SETTLEMENT.

Another Facebook user, Abanifi Phoebe Ijeoma also alleged that the incident occurred 3 months after Mmesonma gave birth to her own child.



She wrote;



On Tuesday February 16 2021, while we were busy going about our normal lives, this woman named Mmesonma Okoye from Enugu state actually killed a ten year old kid by the name Kosisochukwu who was under her care as a "maid" three months after giving birth to her own child

The child Kosisochukwu was inflicted with multiple stab wounds on her head and other parts of her body until she died, what she did after that was so terrible and shocking

She called the family of Kosi to come to a certain hospital because Kosisochukwu was very sick. On getting there, the doctor told her family that the child was long dead before they brought her to the hospital and her remains had been deposited in the mortuary, the family insisted on seeing the corpse and after much back and forth they were granted

Lo and behold, they saw a child, brutally tortured till she breathe her last, with fractured body and a hole in the head, now the thing is Mmesonma and her husband are trying to avert justice because of course late Kosisochukwu was from a very poor home, the family wants justice but as it is the DPO is not helping matters, they are crying for help, they want well meaning Nigerians to intervene and help them get justice

My next post I'm going to attach the picture of Kosisochukwu while alive and her brutalized dead body]]>

Bakayoko died on Wednesday March 10 of cancer in the German city of Freiburg, where he was receiving medical treatment. His death came two days after his 56th birthday and eight months after his predecessor also passed on.



President Alassane Ouattara described Mr Bakayoko as a "great statesman, an example to young people and a man of exemplary loyalty". He said in a statement;



"Our country is in mourning. I have the immense sorrow to announce the death of the Prime Minister, Hamed Bakayoko, Head of Government, Minister of Defense, this Wednesday March 10, 2021, in Germany, as a result of cancer.

"I pay tribute to the Prime Minister, Hamed Bakayoko, my son and close collaborator, too soon torn from our affection."


Mr Bakayoko was flown to France in February for medical tests and was later transferred to Germany due to his deteriorating health.



A former media executive who turned to politics, he played a prominent mediation role in Ivory Coast's civil war during the first decade of the century.



"He was a key player in the political game and a major player in reconciliation. It's a true shame," Issiaka Sangare, spokesman for the opposition Ivorian Popular Front told AFP news agency.



Aside from his role as prime minister, Mr Bakayoko was also the country's defence minister. Patrick Achi has been appointed as interim prime minister, while Tene Birahima Ouattara, a younger brother of the president has been named interim defence minister.]]>

Former sex worker with two vaginas says she used one for work and one for romance http://nairaplace.com//3177/former-sex-worker-with-two-vaginas-says-she-used-one-for-work-and-one-for-romance.html


She said having two vaginas allowed her to separate her sex work from her romantic life.



Evelyn Miller, 30, found out she had uterus didelphys at the age of 20.



This means she has to use two tampons as she has simultaneous periods.



She worked in the sex industry for eight years and says her extra vagina was useful for endurance reasons and to separate work from her personal life.

Evelyn, of Gold Coast, Australia, said, according to DailyStar UK: "To me it's my normal and I never really thought it was that intriguing, but apparently it's very intriguing."



She continued: "I guess not many people can say that they use one vagina for work and one for personal life. It was helpful with work to be able to have a whole other vagina.



"It was handy for endurance – if I had a lot of bookings and I was getting uncomfortable in one, I could just use the other one.



"It's tough being in a relationship with an escort for all sorts of reasons and you especially don't want your sex life compromised at home – it really enabled me to have that separation.



"When I got into a relationship it was better for me to separate the two."



Evelyn claims her condition leaves clients "mind blown" and that a gynaecologist once turned their session into a medical exam.



Evelyn said: "Some clients I will tell and they don't believe me at first until I show them and then they're completely mind blown.



"They ask to try it out, look at it and put their fingers in it.



"A client thought that I'd had a sex change gone wrong, which was a little bit offensive – he was a little bit scared of it.



"I have a million questions - there's so many questions already with sex work, so together it adds a lot more intrigue."



Evelyn claims her uteruses are half the size and a different shape to a regular one and that she was told she may have difficulty conceiving.



But, she is now six months pregnant with a baby boy in her right uterus.



She explained: "Not knowing if I'd be able to have kids, and that being pregnant is quite high risk, was really daunting.



"I actually fell pregnant during a foursome - we were filming with two of my girlfriends and my partner.



"I sent them a text the day I found out and they think they're lucky charms."



She added: "I was told I could get pregnant in each side at the same time, or about three weeks apart – it takes about three weeks for your body to register that you're pregnant in one uterus.



"I could carry babies in each one but they wouldn't be the same age."]]>

Recall that Wike who served as chief of staff to Amaechi while he was governor of Rivers state between 2007 to 2015 had also accused his predecessor of diverting the resources of the state, an allegation the minister has repeatedly denied.



Appearing on an Arise TV program today March 11, Amaechi stated that he won't bring himself ''low'' to discuss about Wike.



He said;



“I don’t think I want to address the issue of the governor, I have made my point and I have moved on.

“He was my staff, I can’t bring myself low. I was a governor, I was also a speaker, I’m a minister. I was two-term chairman of governors’ forum. The same when I was a speaker. Why should I be discussing him?”


The Minister also denied calling Wike a drunk. He added;



“I only said that I don’t make statements under the influence of alcohol. Some people are attaching meaning to what I say."]]>

Woman kills her ex-boyfriend because he refused to pay for her boob job costing $1,800 http://nairaplace.com//3173/woman-kills-her-ex-boyfriend-because-he-refused-to-pay-for-her-boob-job-costing-1-800.html

Cristina D'Avila Teixeira Rodrigues, aged 24, was arrested in Brazil for allegedly executing businessman Paulo Roberto Moraes Teixeira Junior with a gunshot to the back of the head.


She reportedly handed herself to police in the city of Manaus on March 8, three days after commiting the alleged crime.


The victim, Paulo Roberto Moraes Teixeira Junior, 29, owned an internet installation company, where he met Christina.


Police report say he was fatally shot on Friday afternoon, March 5 with a .380 calibre pistol.


He was then rushed to hospital, but died on Sunday, March 7.



According to Rodrigo, the victim's brother, Rodrigues killed her ex because he refused to pay for her silicone breast implants, which can cost around £1,300 ($1,800) in Brazil.


He told local Brazilian media: "He gave her a car, a job, money.


"She wanted silicone, but in times of pandemic, the company was cutting costs and he could not give her this surgery.


"They fought a lot because of this on the night she took my brother's life."


The victim's sister, Roberta, told local media her brother employed her at his company and they had a year-and-a-half-long relationship.


She said: "From what we saw, she was just with him out of self-interest. She liked to show off, but she never posted anything about him.


"It seems he discovered something serious about her and they broke up."


According to Roberta, the suspect went to the victim's house and said she wanted to speak to him.



Hours later, his family was told he had been shot.


She said: "She still had access. Before arriving, she switched off the house's cameras.


"She premeditated everything.



"When she fired the shot, she walked out and called her mother to tell her.

Four couples are caned in Indonesia for having sex outside marriage (photos) http://nairaplace.com//3163/four-couples-are-caned-in-indonesia-for-having-sex-outside-marriage-photos-.html

The men and women were publicly flogged in the ultra-conservative Aceh province governed by Sharia law on Monday, March 8.

The couples, wearing face masks, were reportedly checked by medical officials before they were escorted in handcuffs to the rug where they knelt to receive the lashings.


The brutal punishment was handed out by a hooded cane-wielding enforcer who could not be seen.



Aceh is the only province in the world's most populous Muslim-majority country that imposes Islamic law. About 98 percent of Aceh's five million residents are Muslims.


Human rights groups have slammed public caning as cruel, and Indonesia's President Joko Widodo has also called for it to end but the law has strong support among Aceh's population.

Man breaks wife's jaw during argument over their dog's dinner http://nairaplace.com//3155/man-breaks-wife-s-jaw-during-argument-over-their-dog-s-dinner.html

Patrick Coleman, 47, had an argument over the dog's dinner with his wife Jaqueline Coleman and attacked her until she was rescued by a neighbour.


According to reports, he was spared jail after his wife told the judge it would hurt her family financially and cost her sons their home if he went to prison.


Liverpool Crown Court heard he was being "aggressive" in their living room in St Helens, Merseyside on October 10, 2020.



Judge David Aubrey said the argument “appears to have related to the family dog” and how it was “either eating or not eating his or her meal” when he "lost it".


Speaking to Coleman, the judge said; "the red mist descended" and "it was the first occasion that you had ever laid a finger on your wife”.


The judge said if there had been “any suggestion of prior domestic violence” he would have been jailed.


Paul Blasbery, prosecuting, said Coleman shoved his wife backwards, and then when she pushed him back, he punched her in the left side of her jaw.


He grabbed her and threw her onto the stairs, before “constantly punching her to the face and the body”.


He then pushed her onto a sofa and put his hands around her neck, but "thankfully" a neighbour rushed inside and stopped the violence.


Two days later Mrs Coleman went to the hospital and had her jaw moved back into the correct position, with a titanium plate and four screws inserted.


Coleman told police "it was my fault" when arrested.


He admitted inflicting grievous bodily harm and was handed a 12-month suspended sentence.


In a victim statement, Mrs Coleman said he had never previously been violent during their 26-year relationship.


She said she was concerned about the future, had debts and a mortgage that she couldn't afford to pay on her own, if he was jailed and if she was not able to help with caring responsibilities she might also lose her job, she added.


Mrs Coleman said: "I worry this will feel like we've been punished more than Patrick."


Charles Lander, defending, said Coleman had lost his home and "the love of his wife".


Coleman wanted to "reunite" with his family "if they would want to be reunited with him”, he added.


He said Coleman, who was living in a rented bedsit but also paying towards his mortgage, had mental health issues and was drinking before the attack.


He is now free but stands the risk of facing imprisonment if he attacks his wife again.]]>

Manchester United beat Man City 2-0 at the Etihad http://nairaplace.com//3153/manchester-united-beat-man-city-2-0-at-the-etihad.html

On Sunday night, March 7, Bruno Fernandes and a man of the match performance from Luke Shaw was enough to see off premier league table leaders Manchester City .


United claimed a famous and surprising win and continued their run away from home to an impressive 22 league games unbeaten. More importantly they returned to second in the table, bolstering their hopes of claiming Champions League qualification and also set a standard they have to maintain if they are going to challenge next season.

United may not be closing the gap on City just yet – even if it is now down to 11 points - but taking four points this season from the leading team should be some encouragement with several outstanding performances led by Anthony Martial, and Luke Shaw who scored their second goal in front of England manager Gareth Southgate.



Few minutes into the game, Gabriel Jesus bundled Martial in the area and the referee couldn't avoid giving out a penalty.


Fernandes who has been criticized lately for not playing well against the big six club's, drove the ball to Ederson’s right.


The goalkeeper got a hand to it but could not keep it out and Fernandes had his second goal of the season – and his second penalty – in ‘Big Six’ encounters.


The goal also meant it was the first time that City had been behind in a Premier League game since November 2020, precisely 20 matches ago.



Moments later, United could have had a second goal when Joao Cancelo lost the ball inside his own area only for Shaw to take a shot straight at Ederson.


Shaw was overlapping, Martial was holding up play perfectly and City's midfield controlled by De Bruyne and Gundogan we're finding it hard to control proceedings.



It was not until mid-way through the first-half that City started pressing United back.



Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told his side to press even higher in order to stifle City and it was working.]]>

Court sets aside forfeiture order against Saraki’s properties http://nairaplace.com//3146/court-sets-aside-forfeiture-order-against-saraki-s-properties.html


The court had earlier refused to grant the application of the EFCC for a final forfeiture order of the properties at No. 17 and 17 A Mc Donald Street, Ikoyi, Lagos and instead took oral evidence and adjourned.



Justice Mohammed Liman struck out the case on Thursday March 4, on grounds of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission failing to show that the funds used to purchase the property were proceeds of corruption.



The Judge who agreed with Mr Saraki’s lawyer that the burden of proof for final forfeiture is on the preponderance of evidence, said the EFCC failed to show that the monies used to purchase the properties were from the Kwara State Government House account.



The court further held that the evidence of the transactions presented by the EFCC was in respect of transactions made after he had purchased the property and the proceeds used for the purchase were legal, that is loans. ]]>

Adele and Simon Konecki 'finalise their divorce two years after splitting http://nairaplace.com//3145/adele-and-simon-konecki-finalise-their-divorce-two-years-after-splitting.html


The 32-year-old singer and the charity CEO, 46, are now "officially divorced" according to US Weekly who have reported that a judge signed off the settlement on Thursday, March 4.



It was reported that mediators were forced to split the £140 million fortune that the couple had amassed.



The publication claims that Adele and Simon submitted a "judgement package" in February which stated that they "opted to determine rights to community property and debts through mediation".



While Adele and Simon are said to have "represented themselves" in the case, the singer reportedly sought professional help to manage the terms of their divorce.



The Sun reported that while the split was thought to be amicable, mediators were used to agree certain parts of the divorce settlement.



The couple had a £34.7 million property portfolio among their £140 million fortune, which had been mostly made on the back of Adele's hugely successful career, and the carving up of their assets and money needed careful management.



They had already agreed to have joint custody of their eight-year-old son Angelo.



A source told the publication: "They made it very clear they didn't want to set ­lawyers on each other but the process hasn't been exactly straightforward all the same.



"The priority was making sure they did right by their son, Angelo.



"The first thing they agreed on was sharing custody, and since then it has been about dividing up the rest of their marital finances fairly."



The source added: "Fortunately they have ­managed to get there without an explosive public court case, slanging matches or scandalous claims about each other, and that gives them the best ­possible chance of ­staying on good terms in the future."]]>

Lady who slept with 13-year-old boy counters his age in court http://nairaplace.com//3144/lady-who-slept-with-13-year-old-boy-counters-his-age-in-court.html


Teya who was arraigned on charges of indecent assault, argued that she had no way of knowing that her alleged victim who she met on an adult dating site was only 13-years-old due to his stature and his conduct.



Her lawyer, Moses Nyatsoma argued that the prosecution failed to provide conclusive proof of the boy’s age. According to Nyatsoma, the prosecution has failed to provide the defence with the boy’s birth certificate proving his age, despite being asked to do so.

Zimlive quoted the lawyer as saying;



“We have a child who is in school and has a secret phone which nobody knows about. He lured the girl, of course, a 26-year-old, for sex. The child is purported to be 13 but we have not seen any evidence to prove that.

“We have requested his birth certificate but we have not been furnished with the same to date. So as far as the age of the complainant is concerned, we are not sure.”



Teya’s lawyer further argued that his client thought that she had been hired by an adult because of the juvenile’s stature. He stated that the minor’s actions in procuring Precious’ services as well as his conduct once she was on-site are not consistent with those of a 13-year-old.

Nyatsoma added;



“If you look at the stature of the child, his height, the way he is built, you cannot tell by merely looking at him that he is 13 and there was no way my client could suspect he was a minor.

“If you also look at his own behaviour of going on a dating site, getting a sex worker, paying for the taxi, waiting by the gate, entertaining the sex worker inside the house, and whatever else that transpired… it is not consistent with a 13-year-old. In the absence of proof, we will not accept his age.”



It was further learnt that Precious Teya’s appeal against denial of bail by a magistrate will be heard by High Court judge Justice Tawanda Chitapi.]]>

China makes covid-19 anal swabs compulsory for foreign travelers http://nairaplace.com//3139/china-makes-covid-19-anal-swabs-compulsory-for-foreign-travelers.html

The government has claimed that such tests provide a higher degree of accuracy than other screening methods for the virus, the Times UK reported.


As part of the new travel requirement, there will be testing hubs in Beijing and Shanghai airports, the outlet reported.


Li Tongzeng, a respiratory disease medic, said that the anal swabs are better because virus traces stay longer in fecal samples than they do in the nose or throat, state media reported.


"If we add anal swab testing, it can raise our rate of identifying infected patients," Li Tongzeng told the Washington Post in January.


The move follows calls from the US and Japan to stop performing the "undignified" tests on their citizens when they enter the country because the swabs cause mental anguish.


On Tuesday, China apologized and agreed to stop using anal swabs on American diplomats after some members of US President Joe Biden's administration complained about the method.


"The State Department never agreed to this kind of testing and protested directly to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when we learned that some staff were subject to it," a spokesperson said, adding that Beijing told them the testing was an "error" and diplomats were supposed to be exempt.


The Japanese Government later spoke out over the "psychological pain" their citizens were experiencing from the tests.


"Some Japanese reported to our embassy in China that they received anal swab tests, which caused a great psychological pain," Katsunobu Kato, Japan's chief cabinet secretary, told a press conference.


Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Wang Wenbin, however, defended the screenings as “science-based”


The tests are “in accordance with the changes in the epidemic situation as well as relevant laws and regulations,” he said.


The test, which takes around 10 seconds, involves a saline-soaked cotton swab being inserted three to five centimetres into the rectum and rotated several times. When the swab is then removed it will be securely placed in a test container before the sample is then tested for traces of the virus.

The musical artist shared tweets condemning the strike from the North that saw trucks of food being turned back so it doesn't supply to the South.



This strike resulted from clashes between Fulani herdsmen and farmers in the South- West that culminated in the burning of shops in Shasha market where northerners trade in Oyo state.



Samklef questioned why the government is silent about this ban on movement of food from the North to the South due to the herdsmen-farmers clash. He then added that meat is "not even healthy".



Some followers dragged him as they argued that meat contains protein.

man donates his family house to Christ Embassy,his family members are now homeless http://nairaplace.com//3130/man-donates-his-family-house-to-christ-embassy-his-family-members-are-now-homeless.html


The abroad-based man, identified simply as Shedrack, is said to have returned to Nigeria last year and became serious with religion, to the approval of his family.



Last year, he sowed his car as a seed to the Church and his family members had no problem with it.



However, he went on to donate the family house to the church not long ago.



His family members were not aware their home had been donated until Shedrack's father noticed men going around, viewing the property.



When the older man made enquiry, he was told the property now belongs to Christ Embassy and has been valued to be sold at 25 million Naira.



The house was built on land owned by the entire family and with money contributed by the whole family, though Shedrack contributed the lion's share.



The house is occupied by Shedrack's father, cousins and 4 tenants who paid rent.



The father of Shedrack said he has written to the senior pastor of Christ Embassy in Warri and he promised to take action but a month has passed and nothing has happened.

The father has now lawyered up after reporting to the police, and so has Christ Embassy.



In a statement, Shedrack's father pleaded with the General Overseer of Christ Embassy, Chris Oyakhilome, to intervene.]]>

Oba's daughters sue Ogboni society for allegedly hijacking his corpse http://nairaplace.com//3129/oba-s-daughters-sue-ogboni-society-for-allegedly-hijacking-his-corpse-.html


Mrs Aderonke Egunjimi, Mrs Tiwalade Abass and Mrs Adeyemi Joseph who instituted a N50 billion lawsuit against the society through their lawyer Chief Bolaji Ayorinde SAN, described their late father as a devoted and practising Muslim who performed pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina and had several awards and recognitions by Muslim Societies because of his contributions to the Islamic faith.



Recounting how members/representatives of the society forcibly took their father’s corpse away after they had dug a grave, set up canopies for visitors and concluded funeral arrangements to bury their father according to Islamic rites on January 24, 2021, the late Monarch's daughters sought for a mandatory injunction compelling the society to return the corpse forthwith to their custody at the applicants’ Family House being at No 1, Alaye Aba Street, Aba Quarters, Aiyepe, Ogun State.



The defendants in the suit are; Chief Adeleke Adetola Dako (1st defendant), Chief Mojid Ogunmefun (2nd defendant), Lekan Adekoko (3rd defendant), Chief Ebenezer Ogunlala (4th defendant), Chief Fagbola Adeniyi (5th defendant), Kazeem Adeleke (6th defendant), Taorid Jimoh (7th defendant) and Abiodun Adeleke (8th defendant).

The Oba's daughters who further accused members of the society of infringing on their rights to privacy and family life and depriving their father of a befitting burial, also asked the court to declare the conduct and practice of the 1st to 15th unconstitutional, illegal, vexatious, barbaric, obnoxious, immoral and repugnant to the dictates of civil order as enshrined in the constitution and the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights 2004.



The applicants are further asking the court for an order restraining Ijebu Traditional Council from giving any directions or orders to the 1st to 15th respondents contrary to the reliefs sought by the applicants.



The Nation reported that in an affidavit in support of Originating Motion on Notice deposed to by the deceased’s younger brother, Alhaji Yisa Oloyede Sulaimon, he stated that traditionally, members of the Osugbo Society act as enforcers of the decisions of Obas in Ijebuland.

Terhemen Anongo, popularly called Doc K or Bob Korna, is a resident of Gboko in Benue state.



As he couldn't control his thirst for women, he decided to take the advice in the Bible by cutting off that which causes him to sin.



Anongo is popularly called Doctor K because he was a student of the University of Ibadan medical school. He dropped out in his final year in 2007 owing to psychiatric reasons and has been living alone in his father’s house, having chased out all other relatives who he accused of being behind his plight.



Despite dropping out of school, he is highly articulate and seen as intelligent.

He transports traders’ goods in a wheelbarrow to make ends meet.



But one thing he couldn't control was his libido. To put his sexual drive in check, Anongo sought genital surgery from several professionals, but they all turned him down.



Since he had a bit of medical experience, he took matters into his own hands. He acquired the required tools and medications and proceeded to perform the surgery.



He chopped off his right testicle after dabbing local anaesthetics on it and was determined to remove the left one as well but stopped due to excessive bleeding.



He walked to a medical facility where he was treated and discharged after a few days on admission.

Asked whether he would remove the remaining testicle after recuperating, Doc K said, "No, I won’t try it again."

Bala Fakandu, director of communications in NSA who appeared before the senate committee on communications on Thursday February 25, said they are concerned about the deliberate vulnerabilities and backdoors within the 5G network equipment, which according to him might expose Nigeria to "eavesdropping, tracking, cyber-attacks, military and industrial espionage and other malicious activities by foreign actors."



Fakandu also asked the ministry of communications and digital economy to carry them along in the formulation of the policy that would guide the use of 5G in the country.



He said;



“We are concerned about the deliberate vulnerabilities and backdoors within the 5G network equipment.

“That is one of the key concerns we have and this will make the infrastructure highly susceptible to eavesdropping, tracking, cyber-attacks, military and industrial espionage and other malicious activities by foreign actors.

“We understand these are things that will be put in place particularly in the policy the minister has talked about.

“I need to emphasise it so that the stakeholders in the telecommunications industry will understand where we are coming from because the national security concerns is the concern of the office of the national security adviser and of the president as well.”]]>

LIB reported that the two lovers were found dead in their apartment located at 2, Ojigbo Crescent, Off Sapele-Effurun road, at Uvwie in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State, early Thursday morning, February 25.



An insecticide, popularly called Sniper and a knife were found beside their bodies indicating a suicide pact or murder-suicide.



Before his death, precisely at about 1:50am on Thursday, Emmanuel had put up a post on Facebook that suggested that he was planning to commit suicide. Their bodies were found at 5:am.

In the post in which he tagged his girlfriend, the deceased disclosed that he had been battling with depression for a while and apologised to his family, loved ones and well wishers for his 'abominable act'



Read the note below:



"I won't believe that I'll one day type a suicide epistle like this. I've been battling with depression for while now. No one knows what I've been going through. Nothing beats peace of mind and that I haven't had in a while.

"I once thought when there is money everything is fine and all problems are solved. Buh have come to understand that money can never buy peace of mind. U sleep and wake up peacefully. It's a privilege that you ought to be grateful to God for, because is not ur right. So be grateful.

"Don't live your life for yourself alone, try to put a smile on someone's face no matter how small. So many people battle depression secretly that nobody cares to know about. Nothing matters so much to humanity than for someone to be happy when he/she hears your name. Be the reason why someone is smiling today.

"It's a pity I've to leave this world this way. To all my family members, friends loved ones and wellwishers that I may have disappointed by this abominable act of mine, I sincerely apologise. It's very easy to say suicide isn't an option. Buh I do not wish my enemy to go through what I'm going through now. We'll all meet to part no more. Rest in peace Emmanuel Okikechukwu Evans Ochiotu "



Meanwhile, Amaka had celebrated Emmanuel on his birthday last December, describing him as her "world best"

"Happy birthday my world best. On this special day of yours may the good Lord cause his face to shine on you on every side. May lines fall for you in pleasant places. I celebrate you my darling. You are the best" she had written.

The employee said;



I was just arriving for work when I heard sounds at the back. I made a follow up as it was still quiet with most people not having reported to work yet. I saw the thief trying to jump from the ceiling.

I managed to climb into the ceiling and chased after him and he fell into a shop next door to us commonly known as China Shop. Security details managed to catch him before he fled from the scene.



It was learnt that the thief was immediately apprehended by the police and placed in custody as members of the public bayed for his blood.



Matabeleland South provincial police spokesperson Inspector Loveness Mangena confirmed the incident, saying the thief is in police custody and assisting detectives in their investigations.



Mangena said;



I can confirm that we arrested a man in Gwanda who had broken into shops around the CBD]]>

Man Divorces Wife And Marries The Maid In Zambia (Photos) http://nairaplace.com//3114/man-divorces-wife-and-marries-the-maid-in-zambia-photos-.html
- She told the Court that she loved her husband dearly and never believed why he could do such a thing.

- When the Court asked the man what he had to say in response to his wife's position, the Man categorically told the court that he was not going to change his mind as his decision was final.
He went on to tell the Court that he had enough from his wife who was too lazy to do house chores leaving everything to be done by the maid.

- On two occasions, Elders had sat them down in trying to help matters but there had been no change.
All what the wife did at home was just busy issuing instructions to their maid whilst she would be seated carried away with the phone.
The hubby further told the Court that even during on weekends when not working, his wife would never bother to cook for him his favorite meals as she used to do in the early days of their marriage, but would instead get busy preparing herself to go attend Kitchen Party Committees, coming back drunk in some cases a thing she never used to do in the past.

- The hubby went further asking the Court to carefully look at the long nails of his wife if really that kind of a woman could do any house Chores. So in as far as he was concerned, the maid was now going to be his wife since she was the one who was being asked to do everything at home including caring for the kids.

Marriage was dissolved since the Court had nothing much they could do.

- Identify where the problem was?

- Who was wrong In this matter?

- Did the man indeed make the right decision?

10-year-old boy paralyzed after he was shot in the head by Fulani herdsmen http://nairaplace.com//3113/10-year-old-boy-paralyzed-after-he-was-shot-in-the-head-by-fulani-herdsmen.html


The assailants had attacked different communities across Yewaland earlier this month and killed no fewer than 13 people. Four persons were killed at Ebute-Igbooro and about nine others sustained varying degrees of injury.



The young boy survived the attack but his stepmother and siblings were reportedly among those killed by the attackers.

A social media influencer, Bimbo Cash, who disclosed this on Tuesday February 25, said the boy is paralyzed as a result of the bullets lodged in his head.



According to her, the boy needs to undergo urgent surgery, adding that about eight bullets are yet to be removed from his head.



“I was at a hospital in Ogun State when the matron dragged me to see a 10-year-old boy shot in the head by Fulani herdsmen. He needs to undergo surgery. 8 pellets (are) still logged in his head and he was in pain," Ms Bimbo stated.



"They hacked his step mom to death, killed his siblings, 8 months baby and shot his father and several others. His father was taken to another hospital. These guys invaded the Igbooro community at night, moved from one house to another, shooting and macheting people. They killed an 80-year-old,"



“He needs to be operated on as soon as the deposit is made. Government is supposed to take responsibility for this care. I’m angry that the boy is laying there without hope. The boy’s right arm and right leg are paralyzed already, which means the bullets in the brain are affecting other parts of his body." she explained.



In an update, she disclosed that the Ogun state government has taken over the boy's case.



"The Ogun state government has contacted me and all necessary information sent to them , They are on top of it and has been taken as a matter of urgency. Thanks to everyone for their tags and concern @dabiodunMFR @SulaiOdus Thanks for the Swift response"]]>

''We don’t have anything to do with the lady you mentioned. There are many of them who did not even complete secondary school education but would go on social media to claim they are LAUTECH students.

Joe Biden orders military air strikes in Syria against Iran backed militia http://nairaplace.com//3106/joe-biden-orders-military-air-strikes-in-syria-against-iran-backed-militia.html

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said that the strikes took place "at President Biden's direction" and were authorized not just to respond to recent attacks against American and coalition forces, but to deal with "ongoing threats to those personnel."


Kirby said that Biden conducted the strikes after consulting with US allies, including coalition partners.


"Specifically the strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control point used by a number of Iranian backed militant groups including Kait'ib Hezbollah and Kait'ib Sayyid al Shuhada," Kirbry said.

"The operation sends an unambiguous message; President Biden will act to protect American coalition personnel. At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to deescalate the overall situation in both Eastern Syria and Iraq."


The site is believed to be used as part of a weapons smuggling operation by the militias.



The decision to target the site in Syria was made from the "top down," a defense official said, and was not because of a specific recommendation from the military.


The strikes come as US and Iran position themselves for negotiations about Iran's nuclear program, an already complicated fragile situation.]]>

Missing girl, 13, found in hotel room with 22-year-old man she met on Snapchat http://nairaplace.com//3105/missing-girl-13-found-in-hotel-room-with-22-year-old-man-she-met-on-snapchat-.html


Tyler Thompson, 22, was arrested by police in Volusia County, Florida, on February 18 after being caught on camera in a dark room, shirtless, with an underage girl.

The girl was reported missing by her grandmother at around 6.15pm on Thursday, Feb 18, after she failed to come home after school.



Initial investigations determined that a friend of the missing girl said the victim was planning on going to a motel with someone she met online.



The friend told police she thought the man’s name started with a T, possibly Tyler, and that he was from Orlando. She said he may have picked up the victim at the Dollar General store in Oak Hill, near Edgewater.



Deputy Royce James went to the store to look at security video and found surveillance images of the victim at the store. An employee told the officer that the girl said she was waiting for someone to pick her up.



Deputy James then began visiting motels in the local area, showing the front desk clerks a photo of the missing girl.



At the third motel he checked, the officer noticed a guest checked in under the name Tyler Thompson, with an address of Orlando.



Deputies went to his room and knocked on the door several times before Thompson finally answered.



Police bodycam footage shows the moment an officer opened the hotel room door, in Edgewater, Florida, to find Thompson with the girl last Thursday.

The unnamed 13-year-old can then be seen running up to the officer and giving him a hug.



Deputy James can then be heard saying to the girl as she hugs him; "What’s up sweetheart?"



He then tells her to go and wait in another room as he confronts Thompson.



Thompson has since been charged with interference with child custody and traveling to meet after using a computer to lure a child. Additional charges are may follow, police added.

Thompson was released from the Volusia County Branch Jail on Friday night, Feb 19, on $15,000 bail.]]>

Uzodimma can’t win this war against me - Okorocha http://nairaplace.com//3102/uzodimma-can-t-win-this-war-against-me-okorocha.html


Okorocha who was was arrested on Sunday February 21, for unsealing a property seized by the Imo state government and later released after the intervention of the south-east governors forum, accused Eyinnaya Onuegbu, commissioner for lands in Imo of claiming that the property was built on what should have served as a road for residents.



The senator in a statement released by his media aide Sam Onwuemeodo, said the property was acquired 25 years ago and subsequent administrations, both military and civilian had never raised any issue about it.



Okorocha accused Uzodinma of using his governorship to create a new Imo State where bloody clashes, killings, thuggery, kidnappings, and tension now pervade or reign. He further stated that Uzodinma can't win the current war between both of them, because no one wins war on the basis of falsehood and deceit.



The statement read;



“And that untenable claim by Onuegbu was to justify another nauseating action. Before the radio station, you get two hotels and six other buildings in front.

“Beside and behind the station, you also have several other buildings. And there is no way a building at the centre of other buildings, including hotels, could have been on the road.

“The pulling down of the fence and gate of the radio station, with indigenes and non-indigenes of the state working there to earn their living, had come two days after the same people had invaded the Royal Palm Hotel with armed thugs and men in police uniform, who claimed to be from the Government House.

“They had earlier looted the hotel under the guise of sealing it.

“To all intents and purposes, Chief Uzodinma has used his governorship to create a new Imo State where bloody clashes, killings, thuggery, kidnappings, and tension, now pervade or reign.

“Aside Okorocha, other Imo people had either been attacked, arrested or detained and homes and offices invaded like that of NLC in Owerri.

“We are not expecting these attacks occasioned by envy, vendetta, conspiracy, hatred, and lack of ideas for good governance to stop. But we shall only continue to inform the public whenever they carry out any fresh attack.

“But obviously, Governor Uzodinma shall not win. What is important in every war is who wins and who loses. Governor Uzodinma cannot win, because no one wins war on the basis of falsehood and deceit.”

Delyth Jones, 25, thought she was suffering from appendicitis when her contractions started only for her to give birth half an hour later.



When she began suffering contractions, she called paramedics. On their way to the maternity ward, they were forced to stop at the store where Delyth's sister Kate also works in Pwllheli, Wales.



Meanwhile her partner Dean Stawman, 26, finished his shift there oblivious to the drama that was unfolding just feet away.



He only found out he was a new dad when he got home.

Delyth said: "I've had a pain like that before and had been rushed in before, so assumed it was something similar. I phoned my mum and sister thinking it could be back so they came over to help me.



"When they got there the pain changed and the next thing I knew I was on the floor. Then half an hour later he was born."



Kate said: "We rushed over to help because she wasn't feeling well and we thought it was appendicitis.



"At one point she said, 'I think I'm having a baby', and we laughed. So it was quite a shock when it turned out she was right. She really had no idea she was pregnant. She wasn't showing and didn't feel the baby move."



Delyth said she knew the ambulance had stopped at Asda, but everything happened so quickly after that.



She didn't have time for any pain relief – "just a couple of gulps of gas and air" – before Harry was born, weighing in at a healthy 7lbs 7oz.



Delyth and Harry were taken to Bangor Hospital for checks, but were home within 24 hours.



She said: "We were going through Pwllheli in the ambulance when they said we were going to have to stop.



"The community midwife was around and jumped in the ambulance at Asda and 10 minutes later he was delivered.



"I said to them, 'Tell me I haven't just given birth in Asda' and they said I had – and that it would be listed as his place of birth on his birth certificate.



"It must be fate that he was born at Asda with our connections there."

She continued: "It's been such a whirlwind, but it's been so good and I have absolutely loved it. I wouldn't change any of it.



"Dean knew I'd had a couple of pains the night before and knew I wasn't well, but we decided he should go to work as usual.



"He arrived home just as I was giving birth in Asda. As soon as he found out he was ecstatic."

High court judge under investigation after irate lover leaked his nudes http://nairaplace.com//3089/high-court-judge-under-investigation-after-irate-lover-leaked-his-nudes.html


The nude photos and WhatsApp messages are suspected to have been leaked by an irate lover when she discovered that the judge was double-timing her.



ZimLive had reported that Justice Mabhikwa who lost his wife in December, was exposed by a subordinate whom he spent Friday night with. The subordinate is said to have become furious after she went through the High Court judge’s phone and discovered that he was having an affair with another woman. The judge is said to have sent the other woman his nude photos.



Feeling betrayed by this, the woman reportedly forwarded the Judge's nudes and Whatsapp chats to almost all his contacts. She also forwarded the compromising pictures and chats to a judges’ group.



The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) which reacted to this, said that the judge is under investigation and results of the investigation will be released in due course.



The statement read;



The Judicial Services Commission has taken note of the offensive/indecent material circulating on various media platforms and the alleged relationships between a member of the Judiciary and a member of the support staff.

The Commission wishes to advise that investigations into the matter are underway and the Public will be advised of the results thereof in due course.]]>

This comes just weeks after Michelle Page took to Instagram to beg crossdressers Bobrisky and James Brown to stop fighting and stick together because the world doesn't like people like them.



Michelle had said at the time: "Bobrisky, James Brown, why are you guys fighting? I think by now you guys suppose to know that the society doesn't want us. So, why can't we love each other? Why can't we care for each other?"

Allow all Nigerians bear arms - Miyetti Allah tells FG http://nairaplace.com//3086/allow-all-nigerians-bear-arms-miyetti-allah-tells-fg.html


The Chairman of Miyetti Allah in Bauchi state, Sadiq Ibrahim Ahmed, made the call during an interview with The Nation. He said since the Federal government has failed in its responsibility to protect lives and properties, citizens should be allowed to bear arms so they can protect themselves. He also commended Bauchi state governor, Bala Mohammed, who recently defended Fulani herdsmen who carry AK47.



”The government has become irresponsible. That is why a Fulani man has become an outcast in his own country. All his wealth has been crippled to activities of cattle rustlers. What do you expect him to do?

Let everybody protect themselves, let everybody carry arms. You don’t allow few bandits to come and ruin you , kill you, kill your family as few people cannot be terrorizing everybody.

Though in a normal situation nobody should be allowed to carry arms except those that are legalised to do so but if the Federal government had taken the responsibility of protecting lives of citizens serious, no one would dare have reason to carry arms.

You need to ask yourself is the government doing enough to protect the lives of herdsmen.

I won’t fault Governor Bala Mohammed for the statement, he is very right. After all he did not say herdsmen should go and cause chaos.

No one faulted Benue Governor, Ortom when he said herdsmen should leave his state. So why are they criticising Bauchi governor?”he said]]>

“We are calling on the governor who is friendly to the health sector to help us facilitate the installation and activation of Molecular laboratory with PCR machine as donated by NEDC at the Taraba state specialist hospital for quick diagnosis of Lassa fever and to donate a specific dialysis machine for Lassa fever treatment at the state specialist hospital.” he added.

To avoid corruption, office holders must swear by Ogun, Ifa and Sango -Maharajji http://nairaplace.com//3070/to-avoid-corruption-office-holders-must-swear-by-ogun-ifa-and-sango-maharajji-.html


Maharajji stated this when he spoke at a national news conference to discuss crucial issues affecting the world on Saturday, February 20.



“We should include Ogun, Ifa, Sango and our traditional gods in oath swearing in courts and inaugural ceremonies to avoid corruption completely. People swear with the Bible and Quran and get away unpunished for mismanagement of human and material resources, fraud and scandals that discourage the society. This has led to the destruction of many families and industries.

So, if people who are entrusted with public positions are made to swear by our indigenous gods, you will see things work because we have our traditional divine ways that put checks and balances. The government should consider this.

It is the practical thing put down by our ancestors. This traditional process will make our leaders to be on their guard because the gods are swift in executing punishment for crime and injustice, working with equity and justice.

The knowledge and fear of this will make our leaders and indeed Nigerians, to be upright in their dealings, serving with honesty and a sense of purpose, being accountable for their actions''he said

''He then solicited for, and got the sum of N10,000 from the father, after which he took the little girl into the forest purportedly for a spiritual healing session only to return after a while to inform the girl's father that the little girl had mysteriously disappeared during the process.


On receipt of the report, the Ganjuwa Divisional Patrol team swung into action, combed the entire forest and found the slaughtered body of the said Maimuna.


She was immediately rushed to a hospital where she was pronounced dead by a Medical Doctor.


The ritualist (Rufa'i Yunusa) has since been arrested in connection to the crime and during interrogation voluntarily confessed to have slaughtered the said Maimuna.

Harrison completed the 2020 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge on Saturday, February 20, in 70 days, 3 hours and 48 minutes -- a new world record for the youngest female to row solo across any ocean, organizer, Atlantic Campaigns said.

Along the way, she had a "near collision with a drilling ship, two capsizes, lots of peanut butter and Nutella consumed," Harrison posted on Twitter.


Harrison wrote on her website that she was inspired to take part in the challenge when she saw the 2018 race finish while teaching swimming in the Caribbean.



"It wasn't just watching and holding the flares at Nelson's Dockyard for a race finish that inspired me, it was also talking to a family member of a lad that had just completed who told me just how much of an amazing thing it was. I didn't say 'not a chance I would do that,' it was more a fact of why not do it?" she wrote.



She wrote on her Facebook page that she hopes "to bring inspiration to young people that it is okay to go at things alone," according to her Facebook page.]]>

Two brothers slump and die while fighting over their father's land in Benue http://nairaplace.com//3065/two-brothers-slump-and-die-while-fighting-over-their-father-s-land-in-benue-.html


The brothers identified as Iorhemba Adóón and Jima Adóón, are said to be the eldest sons of late Adóón Agbulu.



It was gathered that the ugly incident happened between 2:00pm - 4:30pm, on February 5, 2021.



According to Facebook user, Udam Samuel Aseer Nts, who shared the story on February 18, trouble started when Jima hired a tractor to plough his rice farm near river Benue but was confronted by his brother, Iorhemba, who dispersed the workers on the grounds that the land was their father’s and as the eldest, he ought to have inherited it.



His action angered Jima, who claimed to have stood by their late father who experienced difficulties before he died.



The brothers were said to have exchanged words and resorted to charms as they made incantation in the full glare of the villagers.



While chanting incantation, the elder brother slumped and in a matter of seconds, the younger one also slumped. Both were rushed to a hospital where doctors pronounced them dead.

Spokesperson of the Benue State Police Command, DSP Catherine Anene, who confirmed the incident to Daily Trust, said the corpses have been deposited at the morgue for autopsy.

FBI links Hushpuppi to North Korean bank robbers and money launderers http://nairaplace.com//3063/fbi-links-hushpuppi-to-north-korean-bank-robbers-and-money-launderers.html


The Justice Department in a detailed statement released on Friday, February 19, alleged that Hushpuppi took part in a “North Korean-perpetrated cyber-enabled heist from a Maltese bank in February 2019.” According to the statement, his role was as a collaborator with a North Korean money launderer, Ghaleb Alaumary, 37, based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.



“Alaumary agreed to plead guilty to the charge, which was filed in the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on Nov. 17, 2020.

“Alaumary was a prolific money launderer for hackers engaged in ATM cash-out schemes, cyber-enabled bank heists, business email compromise (BEC) schemes, and other online fraud schemes. Alaumary is also being prosecuted for his involvement in a separate BEC scheme by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Georgia.

“With respect to the North Korean co-conspirators’ activities, Alaumary organized teams of co-conspirators in the United States and Canada to launder millions of dollars obtained through ATM cash-out operations, including from BankIslami and a bank in India in 2018.

“Alaumary also conspired with Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, aka “Ray Hushpuppi,” and others to launder funds from a North Korean-perpetrated cyber-enabled heist from a Maltese bank in February 2019”the statement read



Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai in June 2020, and extradited to the US where he is being charged by the United States Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles with conspiring to launder hundreds of millions of dollars from “business email compromise” (BEC) frauds and other scams.



His trial was to have commenced late last year, but was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.



Read the full US Justice Department statement on Hushpuppi's alleged involvement with the three North Korean military hackers

A federal indictment unsealed today charges three North Korean computer programmers with participating in a wide-ranging criminal conspiracy to conduct a series of destructive cyberattacks, to steal and extort more than $1.3 billion of money and cryptocurrency from financial institutions and companies, to create and deploy multiple malicious cryptocurrency applications, and to develop and fraudulently market a blockchain platform.

A second case unsealed today revealed that a Canadian-American citizen has agreed to plead guilty in a money laundering scheme and admitted to being a high-level money launderer for multiple criminal schemes, including ATM “cash-out” operations and a cyber-enabled bank heist orchestrated by North Korean hackers.

“As laid out in today’s indictment, North Korea’s operatives, using keyboards rather than guns, stealing digital wallets of cryptocurrency instead of sacks of cash, are the world’s leading bank robbers,” said Assistant Attorney General John C. Demers of the Justice Department’s National Security Division.

“The Department will continue to confront malicious nation state cyber activity with our unique tools and work with our fellow agencies and the family of norms abiding nations to do the same.”

“Today’s unsealed indictment expands upon the FBI’s 2018 charges for the unprecedented cyberattacks conducted by the North Korean regime,” said the FBI Deputy Director Paul Abbate.

“The ongoing targeting, compromise, and cyber-enabled theft by North Korea from global victims was met with the outstanding, persistent investigative efforts of the FBI in close collaboration with U.S. and foreign partners. By arresting facilitators, seizing funds, and charging those responsible for the hacking conspiracy, the FBI continues to impose consequences and hold North Korea accountable for its/their criminal cyber activity.”

“The scope of the criminal conduct by the North Korean hackers was extensive and long-running, and the range of crimes they have committed is staggering,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Tracy L. Wilkison for the Central District of California.

“The conduct detailed in the indictment are the acts of a criminal nation-state that has stopped at nothing to extract revenge and obtain money to prop up its regime.”

“This case is a particularly striking example of the growing alliance between officials within some national governments and highly sophisticated cyber-criminals,” said U.S. Secret Service Assistant Director Michael R. D’Ambrosio.

“The individuals indicted today committed a truly unprecedented range of financial and cyber-crimes: from ransomware attacks and phishing campaigns, to digital bank heists and sophisticated money laundering operations. With victims strewn across the globe, this case shows yet again that the challenge of cybercrime is, and will continue to be, a struggle that can only be won through partnerships, perseverance, and a relentless focus on holding criminals accountable.”

The hacking indictment filed in the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles alleges that Jon Chang Hyok (???), 31; Kim Il (??), 27; and Park Jin Hyok (???), 36, were members of units of the Reconnaissance General Bureau (RGB), a military intelligence agency of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), which engaged in criminal hacking. These North Korean military hacking units are known by multiple names in the cybersecurity community, including Lazarus Group and Advanced Persistent Threat 38 (APT38). Park was previously charged in a criminal complaint unsealed in September 2018.

The indictment alleges a broad array of criminal cyber activities undertaken by the conspiracy, in the United States and abroad, for revenge or financial gain. The schemes alleged include:

Cyberattacks on the Entertainment Industry: The destructive cyberattack on Sony Pictures Entertainment in November 2014 in retaliation for “The Interview,” a movie that depicted a fictional assassination of the DPRK’s leader; the December 2014 targeting of AMC Theatres, which was scheduled to show the film; and a 2015 intrusion into Mammoth Screen, which was producing a fictional series involving a British nuclear scientist taken prisoner in DPRK.

Cyber-Enabled Heists from Banks: Attempts from 2015 through 2019 to steal more than $1.2 billion from banks in Vietnam, Bangladesh, Taiwan, Mexico, Malta, and Africa by hacking the banks’ computer networks and sending fraudulent Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) messages.

Cyber-Enabled ATM Cash-Out Thefts: Thefts through ATM cash-out schemes – referred to by the U.S. government as “FASTCash” – including the October 2018 theft of $6.1 million from BankIslami Pakistan Limited (BankIslami).

Ransomware and Cyber-Enabled Extortion: Creation of the destructive WannaCry 2.0 ransomware in May 2017, and the extortion and attempted extortion of victim companies from 2017 through 2020 involving the theft of sensitive data and deployment of other ransomware.

Creation and Deployment of Malicious Cryptocurrency Applications: Development of multiple malicious cryptocurrency applications from March 2018 through at least September 2020 – including Celas Trade Pro, WorldBit-Bot, iCryptoFx, Union Crypto Trader, Kupay Wallet, CoinGo Trade, Dorusio, CryptoNeuro Trader, and Ants2Whale – which would provide the North Korean hackers a backdoor into the victims’ computers.

Targeting of Cryptocurrency Companies and Theft of Cryptocurrency: Targeting of hundreds of cryptocurrency companies and the theft of tens of millions of dollars’ worth of cryptocurrency, including $75 million from a Slovenian cryptocurrency company in December 2017; $24.9 million from an Indonesian cryptocurrency company in September 2018; and $11.8 million from a financial services company in New York in August 2020 in which the hackers used the malicious CryptoNeuro Trader application as a backdoor.

Spear-Phishing Campaigns: Multiple spear-phishing campaigns from March 2016 through February 2020 that targeted employees of United States cleared defense contractors, energy companies, aerospace companies, technology companies, the U.S.Department of State, and the U.S. Department of Defense.

Marine Chain Token and Initial Coin Offering: Development and marketing in 2017 and 2018 of the Marine Chain Token to enable investors to purchase fractional ownership interests in marine shipping vessels, supported by a blockchain, which would allow the DPRK to secretly obtain funds from investors, control interests in marine shipping vessels, and evade U.S. sanctions.

According to the allegations contained in the hacking indictment, which was filed on Dec. 8, 2020, in the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles and unsealed today, the three defendants were members of units of the RGB who were at times stationed by the North Korean government in other countries, including China and Russia. While these defendants were part of RGB units that have been referred to by cybersecurity researchers as Lazarus Group and APT38, the indictment alleges that these groups engaged in a single conspiracy to cause damage, steal data and money, and otherwise further the strategic and financial interests of the DPRK government and its leader, Kim Jong Un.

Money Launderer Charged in California and Georgia

Federal prosecutors today also unsealed a charge against Ghaleb Alaumary, 37, of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, for his role as a money launderer for the North Korean conspiracy, among other criminal schemes. Alaumary agreed to plead guilty to the charge, which was filed in the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on Nov. 17, 2020. Alaumary was a prolific money launderer for hackers engaged in ATM cash-out schemes, cyber-enabled bank heists, business email compromise (BEC) schemes, and other online fraud schemes. Alaumary is also being prosecuted for his involvement in a separate BEC scheme by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Georgia.

With respect to the North Korean co-conspirators’ activities, Alaumary organized teams of co-conspirators in the United States and Canada to launder millions of dollars obtained through ATM cash-out operations, including from BankIslami and a bank in India in 2018. Alaumary also conspired with Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, aka “Ray Hushpuppi,” and others to launder funds from a North Korean-perpetrated cyber-enabled heist from a Maltese bank in February 2019. Last summer, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles charged Abbas in a separate case alleging that he conspired to launder hundreds of millions of dollars from BEC frauds and other scams.

Accompanying Mitigation Efforts

Throughout the investigation, the FBI and the Justice Department provided specific information to victims about how they had been targeted or compromised, as well as information about the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) used by the hackers with the goals of remediating any intrusion and preventing future intrusions. That direct sharing of information took place in the United States and in foreign countries, often with the assistance of foreign law enforcement partners. The FBI also collaborated with certain private cybersecurity companies by sharing and analyzing information about the intrusion TTPs used by the members of the conspiracy.

In addition to the criminal charges, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Treasury, today released a joint cybersecurity advisory and malware analysis reports (MARs) regarding North Korean cryptocurrency malware. The joint cybersecurity analysis and MARs highlight the cyber threat North Korea – which is referred to by the U.S. government as HIDDEN COBRA – poses to cryptocurrency and identify malware and indicators of compromise related to the “AppleJeus” family of malware (the name given by the cybersecurity community to a family of North Korean malicious cryptocurrency applications that includes Celas Trade Pro, WorldBit-Bot, Union Crypto Trader, Kupay Wallet, CoinGo Trade, Dorusio, CryptoNeuro Trader, and Ants2Whale). The joint cybersecurity advisory and MARs collectively provide the cybersecurity community and public with information about identifying North Korean malicious cryptocurrency applications, avoiding intrusions, and remedying infections.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office and FBI also obtained seizure warrants authorizing the FBI to seize cryptocurrency stolen by the North Korean hackers from a victim in the indictment – a financial services company in New York – held at two cryptocurrency exchanges. The seizures include sums of multiple cryptocurrencies totalling approximately $1.9 million, which will ultimately be returned to the victim.

Jon, Kim, and Park are charged with one count of conspiracy to commit computer fraud and abuse, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison, and one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud, which carries a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.

In relation to the case filed in Los Angeles, Alaumary has agreed to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

The charges contained in the indictment are merely accusations and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

The investigation of Jon, Kim, and Park was led by the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office, which worked closely with the FBI’s Charlotte Field Office. The U.S. Secret Service’s Los Angeles Field Office and Global Investigative Operations Center provided substantial assistance. The FBI’s Cyber Division also provided substantial assistance.

The investigations of Alaumary were conducted by the U.S. Secret Service’s Savannah Field Office, FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office, and the U.S. Secret Service’s Los Angeles Field Office and Global Investigative Operations Center. The FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division also provided substantial assistance.

The case against Jon, Kim, and Park is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Anil J. Antony and Khaldoun Shobaki of the Cyber and Intellectual Property Crimes Section, with substantial assistance from Trial Attorney Scott Claffee of the Department of Justice National Security Division’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Antony and Shobaki are also prosecuting the case against Alaumary, in which the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Georgia and the Criminal Division’s Computer Crimes and Intellectual Property Section (CCIPS) provided substantial assistance. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Antony and Shobaki, along with Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Galatzan of the Asset Forfeiture Section, also obtained the seizure warrants for cryptocurrency stolen from the financial services company in New York.

The Criminal Division’s Office of International Affairs provided assistance throughout these investigations, as did many of the FBI’s Legal Attachés, as well as foreign authorities around the world. Numerous victims cooperated and provided valuable assistance.''

Kagara abduction: FG won't pay any ransom - Lai Mohammed http://nairaplace.com//3060/kagara-abduction-fg-won-t-pay-any-ransom-lai-mohammed-.html


Lai Mohammed said this after an unconfirmed report alleged that the federal government paid N800m to secure the release of the abducted students and staff of the school.



Reacting to this on Saturday February 20 in a Channels Television program, Lai Mohammed who was asked if government had paid ransom said “No.” He also added that they will employ kinetic and non-kinetic measures in securing their release and won't throw away the invitation to engage.



“We employ kinetic and non-kinetic (measures), you don’t throwaway invitation to engage but the overall strategy you keep to your chest.”

Continuing, he said, “Bandits all over the world work with psychology of people. Deliberately, they target women and children because this is what will attract a lot of global outcry. That is exactly what bandits do all over the world.

“The government has put in place, all along, various strategies to contain banditry, to fight insurgency, to fight kidnapping. Some of these measures are kinetic, some are not kinetic. We didn’t get here overnight and that is why it is difficult to get out one day.

“Criminality in any form will not be tolerated by government. At the same time, government has a duty to look at the underlining causes of some of these criminalities in other to address them.

“I was in Minna with my colleagues, the Ministers of Interior and Police Affairs, the IG, and the National Security Adviser on Wednesday to get a firsthand information on the abduction of these Kagara schoolboys. I can tell you that as at today that the government is on top of the matter.”

For 6 months on the sickbed my boyfriend never checked up on me http://nairaplace.com//3049/for-6-months-on-the-sickbed-my-boyfriend-never-checked-up-on-me.html


According to the Kaduna-born University of Ilorin graduate, her boyfriend and friends abandoned her when she fell sick on October 2019.

In the personal story she shared on Thursday, February 18, Keziah praised her mother, who she described as a hero, for standing by her when others left, for taking care of her in the hospital and at home all through her painful ordeal. Read below:



I was going through my calendar yesterday then I remembered my experience on October 15 2019.



To my story, I fell sick 15th October 2019 I was rushed to a clinic and the nurse diagnosed malaria but deep down I knew what I felt was more than malaria. I was injected on my lap by a lady I thought was a nurse I never knew she was a lab attendant, and that was the beginning of my problem, the injection i was given formed an abscess.



I was later referred to a state general hospital. I was wheeled there because I could not walk and the only complain I gave the doctor was my leg, on seeing me he shouted at my mum and was like this girl is dying and all you could see was her leg, I did several tests and I was diagnosed with a liver problem.



My mum went through hell, wheeling me from one lab to another she became so lean, she slept on the tiles for months, she would have to clean me up every morning because I couldn't do anything my self. I was placed on a catheter to pass urine.



I was in pain for 2 months because no surgeon was ready to incise my leg. And incision was the only option to ease the pain. through begging and pleading a surgeon agreed to do it. It was like we forced him, this man incised my leg life and direct without local anesthesia.



He didn't give me pain relief not to talk anti-tetanus. Thanks to my mum because she was a nurse and due to her knowledge she gave me pain relief and anti-tetanus without the hospital's knowledge.



This surgeon did not come to check the leg for 5 days nor redress the wound. I was in so much pain my mum had to remove the bandage, pus was gushing out of my leg and that was when I notice the iodine he(surgeon) used for the dressing 5 days earlier had caused a huge wound on my leg. I was there for 3 months like a dead corps because no surgeon attendend to me again and general medicine could not attend to me because I was already under the surgeon's care.



I was sick and frustrated, I felt like committing suicide, I wanted to drink detol but it was so far from me that made it impossible. I was later referred to a teaching hospital because my mum stood has a threat to them. The teaching hospital I was referred to was on strike, so my mum had to start the treatment at home, if I knew my recovery would be very fast at home I wouldn't have bothered going to any hospital.



For 6 months on the sickbed boyfriend never checked up on me. Story for another day. I lost a lot of friends but I gain some true friends.



Shout out to you mum!!! you're a hero you stood by me when others left. how can I ever repay you? You are the world's best mum. I LOVE YOU.



That was the old picture I snapped December last year and the recent was February 17 2021..Thanks for taking the time.]]>

Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry lined up as the next Bournemouth manager http://nairaplace.com//3043/arsenal-legend-thierry-henry-lined-up-as-the-next-bournemouth-manager.html


The Championship club are ramping up their attempts to fill a position vacated by Jason Tindall, who was sacked after six months following four straight defeats.

Turkish Man Poses With His Pregnant Wife Before He Threw Her To Her Death http://nairaplace.com//3042/turkish-man-poses-with-his-pregnant-wife-before-he-threw-her-to-her-death.html
-Hakan Aysal, 40, allegedly threw his heavily pregnant wife Semra Aysal off cliff
Aysal was arrested for murder of wife and unborn baby while they were on holiday in Mugla, Turkey
-Aysal allegedly pushed his wife, who was seven months pregnant, in June 2018
-Prosecutors claim he 'planned the murder of his wife by first taking out a personal accident insurance on her behalf with a guarantee of

Hakan Aysal, 40, was arrested for the murder of his wife Semra Aysal, 32, and their unborn baby while they were on holiday in Butterfly Valley in the city of Mugla, Turkey.

Aysal allegedly pushed his wife, who was seven months pregnant at the time, off the cliff where she and the baby were killed instantly in June 2018.

The couple had been taking pictures together on the cliff, and prosecutors say the 'accident' was in fact murder carried out by Aysal so that he could cash in on the insurance he took out shortly before Semra's death.

In the indictment prepared for the crime of 'deliberate murder' against the husband, it states that he 'planned the murder of his wife by first taking out a personal accident insurance on her behalf with a guarantee of 400,000 Turkish Lira (£40,865) and where the only beneficiary was himself'.

Prosecutors claimed that the only reason they sat on top of the cliff for three hours was so that he could make sure no one was around.

They allege that as soon as Aysal realised they were alone, he deliberately killed her by pushing her off the cliff.

The indictment also noted that Aysal had claimed the insurance payment a short while later, but it was declined when news of the investigation was unveiled.

The Fethiye High Criminal Court has ruled that he be remanded in custody for premeditated murder.

In a video interview, the court heard from the victim's brother Naim Yolcu who said: 'When we went to the Forensic Medicine Institute to get the body, Hakan was sitting in the car. My family and I were destroyed, but Hakan did not even appear sad.'

He added: 'My sister was always against taking out loans. However, after she died, we learned that she had three loans taken by Hakan on behalf of my sister.

'Also, Semra had a fear of heights, what extreme sport is she going to be doing when she is scared of heights?'

Aysal was also asked about the article in the accident personal insurance stating that he would be the heir if Semra died.

Aysal said; 'I did not examine the policy much. The banker arranged the paperwork. I just brought it to my wife to get it signed. I was not aware that there was such an article.'

He has denied being responsible for her death, saying: 'After taking a photo, my wife put the phone in her bag. Later she asked me to give her the phone.

'I got up and then heard my wife scream behind me when I walked a few steps away to get the phone from her bag. When I turned back, she was not there. I did not push my wife.']]>

Alvan Ikoku College Lecturer Slumps, Dies In Lecture Hall http://nairaplace.com//3041/alvan-ikoku-college-lecturer-slumps-dies-in-lecture-hall.html
The Acting Public Relations Officer of the college, Mr Joseph Okwulehi, who confirmed the death to newsmen in his office on Wednesday, said the Provost of the college is engrossed in a series of emergency meetings over the issue.

He said the management has advised the staff and students of the institution to be calm and wait for the official position of the institution on the issue.

“I can confirm to you that a senior lecturer slumped in a classroom on Tuesday and was confirmed dead at the Federal Medical Center, Owerri.

NAN reports that Echetama, until his death, was a senior lecturer at the Department of Business Education.

Meanwhile, the development has forced students to keep away from lectures over an emerging rumour that the sudden death of the lecturer was connected to COVID-19.

Students were seen on Wednesday vacating school hostels, while others fled the school premises for the fear of contracting the dreaded virus.

Some of the students who spoke to NAN said they decided to avoid lectures when the rumour emerged that the lecturer died of Coronavirus complication.

A final year student of the institution, Mr Frederick Anyawu, said the development has forced lecturers to suspend lectures.

He said students decided to keep away from the college until the issue is sorted out.

Another student in the department of economics, Mr Okechukwu Eze, said the development has caused skeletal activities in the institution.

Driver who killed Nicki Minaj's father in hit and run accident, turns himself into police http://nairaplace.com//3040/driver-who-killed-nicki-minaj-s-father-in-hit-and-run-accident-turns-himself-into-police.html


Robert Maraj, 64, was hit by a car that kept going in Mineola, Long Island at 6:15 p.m. last Friday, according to a spokesperson for the Nassau County Police Department. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead on Saturday.



According to Page Six, the alleged hit-and-run driver turned himself to police on Wednesday morning.



Nicki, 38, who was born in Trinidad and Tobago and raised in the Queens borough of New York City, is yet to publicly address the death of her father.



In 2010, the rapper described her father as violent towards her mother, telling Rolling Stone that he once set fire to their home with her mother inside.



“I remember when my mother would let my father be violent with her and she always brings up this story about when I was a little girl and I would stand in front of my mother,” the singer said, demonstrating how she put her arms out for protection, in her 2018 documentary Queen.



“That’s why maybe some people would describe me as abrasive or bitchy or whatever because I vowed from that age no man would ever abuse me, call me out my name, treat me like that. Then all of a sudden, that was my life.”]]>

Act now to prevent another civil war - Arewa Youth Forum tells Buhari http://nairaplace.com//3035/act-now-to-prevent-another-civil-war-arewa-youth-forum-tells-buhari.html


The group pointed out that another civil war could break out if the government doesn't act.



The northern youths said this in a statement signed by its National President, Alhaji Ibrahim Gambo Gujungu, Wednesday, Feb 17, in Kaduna.



They said: "The Arewa Youth Forum is worried by the prevailing impasse and rising tension across the country precipitated by the quit notice given to Fulani herdsmen by the Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and the actions that had trailed that incident.



"As it stands, owning to the actions of non-state actors and inaction of state actors, mainly the Federal Government and the state governors, the country is fast drifting and action must be taken immediately to stem this drift.



"After keeping silent for a long time, the Federal Government has, again, resorted to its usual rhetoric of issuing statements that over time had not made any impact on the situation of things in the country. Instead, the situation in the country has continued to deteriorate with each region looking within and resorting to self help as if the centre is no longer there.



"It is in view of this that the AYF is calling on the Federal Government to immediately act, on behalf of Nigerians that voted them into power, to prevent another civil war in the country. Many citizens across the country are agitated in view of the prevailing situation."



According to the Arewa youths, unity of the country could only be achieved if government makes haste in dealing with insecurity, poverty, deprivation and endemic unemployment ravaging the people.



The statement continues: "There is a serious need for synergy between the Federal Government and the states to achieve all these and many more. State governors should be told that government’s inability to clamp down on criminals should not be an avenue to malign a whole ethnic group or even a group of people.



"Criminals should be treated as criminals, arrested, prosecuted and made to face the full wrath of the law anywhere they reside or commit crime in Nigeria. This is what government is expected to do.



"The invention of quit notice is not only alien to us but a recipe for anarchy, disaster and even war. This is a road we all as citizens must strive not to travel”.



"We have at different times aired our views on the need for government to put its house in order and tackle the insecurity in the country headlong. We appreciate that the Federal Government, under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, has listened to agitations of Nigerians by bringing on board new service chiefs. However, they should hit the ground running because there is no time for honeymoon.



"The new service chiefs should immediately come up with a new agenda on how to end the insurgency in the North East, banditry in the North West and the general insecurity across the country. The time to act is now before the situation gets out of hand."]]>

Woman dumps husband after seeing incriminating detail in selfie http://nairaplace.com//3034/woman-dumps-husband-after-seeing-incriminating-detail-in-selfie.html


TikTok user @shesough uploaded a video on Sunday, February 14, and explained how her husband was staying in a hotel for the night and partying at a casino.



He sent her some selfies of himself posing in the bathroom of his suite.



However, on closer inspection of the photo, his wife noticed something that shouldn't have been there and it suggested he had female company.



She wrote: "My husband sent me pics trying to look all cute in his suite at the casino, but I noticed some odd things, now he is single.



"Can you guess what it is?" she asked.



One look at the bathroom counter in front of him shows hair straighteners in the reflection.

Many were quick to point out in the comments that hair straighteners weren't usually provided by hotels, so someone else likely packed put them there.



A fan said: "Hair straightener looks pretty sus."



"Oooofff the straightener and the detangling comb," wrote someone else.



Also, the man didn’t appear to be wearing a wedding ring in the photos, as spotted by other commenters.



The video was watched more than 4 million times and many commenters were eager to know what happened next.



In a follow-up video, the TikTok user said it was the hair straighteners that she found most suspicious, as well as another item she didn't recognise.

She says: "The first thing I saw was the straightener, it was just there in plain sight.



"The second thing I noticed was a purse on the floor, it looked like a coach bag or something, maybe like a Michael Kors bag.



"Supposedly, that wasn’t his room and that was a friend’s room he was in, like another guy’s room who has a girlfriend or something.



"But I’m not believing it because that’s just all too sketchy, like why are you in somebody’s else’s room taking photos?"

Omar Farouk, teenager sentenced for blasphemy in Kano, relocates abroad http://nairaplace.com//3033/omar-farouk-teenager-sentenced-for-blasphemy-in-kano-relocates-abroad.html


Farouq was sentenced to 10 years in prison after he was accused of using language considered to be blasphemous toward Allah in a chat with his friend when he was a 13-year-old.



He was sentenced by a Sharia court in 2020.



However, a Lagos-based human rights lawyer, Kola Alapini, had filed the appeal against the Kano State government to challenge the lower court judgement.



The director of Poland’s Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, Piotr Cywinski, also appealed to Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari to pardon Farouq.



Farouq was thereafter cleared of all charges, acquitted, and released from prison on January 25, 2021.



However, Poland's Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial, in a post on its website, said Farouq was facing further threats to his life from some extremists in Kano State.



Cywi?ski, in a post on the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial website, said Farouq’s life "is still under severe threat by extremist groups."



The director said, "In order to avoid a possible attack, Omar had to immediately relocate following his release".



He did not disclose Farouq’s new location.



Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum said it plans to help Farouq "to build a new life. Depending on the amount raised, we plan to provide him with a new home in a safe environment outside the Kano state where he was accused and tried, pay for his education, and also compensate part of the costs incurred by the lawyers supporting him in Nigeria."



Cywi?ski said due to legal regulations of museums’ operations in Poland, the fundraising effort and all related communications will be driven by the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation, of which the Museum Director is also President.



"The Foundation will do this pro bono," Cywi?ski said.]]>

South African radio presenter brutally attacked and stabbed by her husband http://nairaplace.com//3030/south-african-radio-presenter-brutally-attacked-and-stabbed-by-her-husband.html


The Lesedi FM current affairs presenter and producer, 41, was brutally attacked and stabbed multiple times by her husband, Mackenzie Ratselane, a former police officer, at Dinaweng informal settlement just outside Bloemfonteiin last Thursday.

The police said the attack happened during an argument between the couple.



Free State Police Spokesperson, Brig Montantsi Makhele, who confirmed the incident, said after several attempts to get in contact with the husband of the Lesedi FM current affairs presenter, who was brutally attacked, the police took the investigation to another level and obtained a warrant of arrest.

"After several attempts to get into contact with the husband of Lesedi FM Current Affairs presenter Me. Dimakatso Ratselane who was brutally attacked, the police took the investigation to another level and obtained his Warrant of Arrest," the statement says.



"From today, Monday, 15 February 2021 Mackenzie Ratselane is regarded as a suspect on the run, and will be treated as such by any law-enforcement officer who will come across him anywhere within and outside the borders of this country, as we believe he has a serious case of Attempted Murder to answer.



"This is after his wife, Me Dimakatso Ratselane was found on 11 February 2021 by community members at a place popularly known as Dinaweng, in Mangaung full of blood due to multiple stab wounds she sustained. According to preliminary investigations conducted, he was the last person suspected to have been with the victim before she sustained these injuries.



"We therefore appeal to anyone who might come across him to contact head of the investigating team, Captain Paseka Mojaki"



Meanwhile, Dimakatso Ratselane is responding well to treatment. A family spokesperson Tsietsi Mohoalali said the mother of three is now out of danger at a Bloemfontein hospital.



“Dimakatso is responding well to the medication and she is now speaking. We hope that she will get better soon. As a family, we are devastated by what happened and we can only trust that the suspect, who is now said to be in Lesotho, [will] be arrested and face the music,” Mohoalali said.]]>

4 killed including three members of same family as two-storey building collapse http://nairaplace.com//3026/4-killed-including-three-members-of-same-family-as-two-storey-building-collapse-.html


Local media reported that the Civil protection forces have rescued an injured six-year-old child who was trapped under the debris, adding that a lady was still missing.



Among the four who were killed, three were from one family, the state-run Al-Ahram daily said.

Three other houses in the area were evacuated of inhabitants amid concern of probable collapse before police cordoned off the area, keeping back those who were looking for relatives in the building.

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala confirmed as the next Director-General of the WTO http://nairaplace.com//3025/ngozi-okonjo-iweala-confirmed-as-the-next-director-general-of-the-wto.html


The organization confirmed this on its Twitter handle this afternoon. She makes history as the first woman and the first African to lead the WTO. Her term starts on the 1st of March 2021 and will expire on 31 August 2025.



Reacting to the decision of the WTO General Council to confirm her appointment, Okonjo-Iweala said

"I am honoured to have been selected by WTO members as WTO Director-General," said Dr Okonjo-Iweala. "A strong WTO is vital if we are to recover fully and rapidly from the devastation wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic. I look forward to working with members to shape and implement the policy responses we need to get the global economy going again. Our organization faces a great many challenges but working together we can collectively make the WTO stronger, more agile and better adapted to the realities of today."



The General Council decision follows months of uncertainty that arose when the United States initially refused to join the consensus around Dr Okonjo-Iweala and threw its support behind Trade Minister Yoo Myung-hee of the Republic of Korea. But following Ms Yoo's decision on 5 February to withdraw her candidacy, the administration of newly elected US President Joseph R. Biden Jr. dropped the US objection and announced instead that Washington extends its "strong support" to the candidacy of Dr Okonjo-Iweala.]]>

I don’t believe that Buhari is in charge - Wole Soyinka http://nairaplace.com//3018/i-don-t-believe-that-buhari-is-in-charge-wole-soyinka.html


According to the Noble laureate, the manner the President has so far handled insecurity, suggests that he doesn't have a full grasp of how bad it is.



Speaking in an interview with Arise TV, Soyinka said he doesn’t see any proof that the president understands how much needs to be done in terms of improving security.



“I have said this before and I wish to repeat this. Buhari does not appreciate the situation; he doesn’t understand. I see no evidence that he understands how grave the situation is. I have said it again and again, I don’t believe that he is in charge, because it is not possible in my view for a head of state, commander-in-chief of the armed forces, to say he is presiding over a nation and things get to this level.

Something is critically wrong within the leadership of this nation and that is where we civilians must come in. You must pick up this slack for our own situation, our own salvation, and this is one of the things we engaged in and that is why I resent this becoming individualised. Wole Soyinka is just another individual, just like another farmer, another student and I wanted people to understand this.

What happened to me with this incident is just typical of what is happening to millions of people all over the country and we cannot just sit still” he said]]>

Ned Nwoko raises alarm over alleged plot to assassinate him http://nairaplace.com//3016/ned-nwoko-raises-alarm-over-alleged-plot-to-assassinate-him.html


The former member of the House of Representatives raised the alarm at a press briefing he organised alongside his wife Regina Daniels on Thursday, Feb 11, in Abuja.



He said that the plot is connected to a piece of land in his community in Delta state in which he was setting up a university. He added that a tussle about who becomes the next king of his community is also another factor.



He explained that the issue of who becomes the next king had been settled by the elders and that the allocation of the land to him followed due process.



The politician said that the assassination plot was exposed on social media by an inmate in Kuje Prison, Abuja, who overheard two fellow prisoners discussing the plot. He said the matter had been reported to the Nigerian Police Force.



Nwoko claimed that the inmate, who was later released from the prison, received series of threat messages and died mysteriously after three weeks and an autopsy was being carried out.



He said the inmate was able to get the information on social media and the attention of his wife, Regina was drawn to it.



"I then reported the matter to the police and Department of State Security (DSS) and they went and interviewed the inmates involved. The inmates mentioned the name of one businessman who deals in the oil and gas sector as the master minder."



Speaking further, he said the family of the late inmate would have been at this conference but due to fear for their lives, they refused to come.



He said though security around him and his family had been tightened, the press conference was necessary to let the world know of the threat.]]>

The lady who was formerly admitted in a private hospital for treatment, was transferred to OAUTHC after it was noticed she was showing some symptoms of COVID-19 like the acute cough, breathlessness, fever and malaise.



Chief Medical Director (CMD), Ile-Ife, Prof. Victor Adetiloye who didn't reveal the name of the woman said;



“She is a 101-year-old woman, who initially presented at a private hospital in Ile-Ife with acute onset of cough breathlessness, fever and malaise. Symptoms started eight days before presentation. The patient’s clinical condition worsened and this warranted a screening test for SARS CoV2.

“The PCR result returned positive and she was subsequently admitted to the OAUTHC Isolation Centre on 30/01/2021. The relevant findings on admission included poor oxygen saturation (SpO2 90% on oxygen), lethargy, altered sensorium, neutrophilic leukocytosis and hypokalemia.

“She was subsequently managed with intravenous antibiotics, supplemental oxygen, high dose multivitamins, zinc sulphate, potassium supplementation, subcutaneous clexane and low dose intravenous dexamethasone.

“The challenges encountered in the clinical management of this patient included: advanced age, frailty, poor sleep and appetite as well as frequent desaturation.

“We closely monitored her as regards vital signs, especially the oxygen saturation, pulse blood pressure and blood glucose. She was cautiously anticoagulated and subsequently mobilised on a wheelchair.”



Adetiloye added that the clinical condition gradually improved and she was weaned off oxygen six days after admission and at discharge. She was stable with oxygen saturation at 97 per cent and other vital signs were within normal limits.



He said;



“She was discharged home on medications and counselled on the need to observe all the non-pharmacological preventive measures against COVID-19.

“The total length of admission was 12 days and she was discharged into the warm embrace of her children and other close relations."]]>

Court remands mother of 4 for allegedly killing her housemaid in Kano http://nairaplace.com//3008/court-remands-mother-of-4-for-allegedly-killing-her-housemaid-in-kano-.html


It will be recalled that Mrs Hamza was arrested after being accused of beating the late Khadija Rabiu to a pulp and inserting dried pepper and metal object in her vagina for not doing the house chores she was instructed to do.



The teenager, who is an indigene of Kwara State, was said to have died as a result of injuries she sustained from the beating. Her co-housemaid, who earlier said that Khadija died as a result of injuries she sustained from the beating, later retracted her statement. Read previous reports HERE and HERE



The Magistrate Court No 8 sitting in Gyadi-Gyadi area of the state metropolis on Monday, ordered that Hamza be remanded in a correctional centre for murder.



The State Counsel, Barrister Asma’u Ado, told the court that the woman was brought before the court on a one-count charge of culpable homicide, which contradicts section 224 of Penal Code Law.



The accused person pleaded not guilty.



Her counsel, Barrister Ibrahim Abdullahi Chedi applied for bail on health ground, noting that the accused had a miscarriage while in police detention and her baby was also not feeling fine.



"We have a medical report from the Police Headquarters Medical Centre as our client had a miscarriage as a result of shock. And as a nursing mother, her daughter is also sick so we are seeking bail so that our client can have access to a facility for better medical care,” he said.



But the state counsel objected to the application on the grounds that the medical report did not indicate a specific illness that the accused person was suffering from “apart from the miscarriage, which she will recover from as she continues taking her drugs”.



The presiding Judge, Chief Magistrate Ibrahim Khalil Mahmood, thereafter ordered that the accused person be remanded in a correctional centre and adjourned the case to February 16 for ruling on the bail application.

Porn mogul and Hustler publisher, Larry Flynt dies at 78 http://nairaplace.com//3006/porn-mogul-and-hustler-publisher-larry-flynt-dies-at-78.html


He passed away on Wednesday February 10, at his Hollywood Hills home, his nephew, Jimmy Flynt Jr., confirmed to CNN.



The exact cause of death was not disclosed, but Flynt Jr. said his uncle had been in frail health for much of the past 30 years since a 1978 assassination attempt left him paraplegic.



"Larry was a rebel. He had a very complex personality. That's why they made a movie about it," Flynt Jr. said about his uncle.



Flynt lived a difficult life after being shot, but one that was marked by tremendous success, his nephew said.



"He wanted to be remembered as a person who pushed the boundaries of free speech and that the First Amendment was the cornerstone of democracy," Flynt Jr. said.



Flynt launched the pornographic magazine Hustler in 1974. He went on to found Larry Flynt Publications, which produced other pornographic magazines including Barely Legal and Beaver Hunt. He also started other businesses including the Hustler casino in Los Angeles.



In 1978, Flynt was shot and paralyzed from the waist down in an assassination attempt by serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin, and restricted to a $17,000 gold-plated wheelchair for the rest of his life.

Flynt ended up filing a legal motion with the American Civil Liberties Union requesting to stop Franklin's execution, telling CNN that he was against the death penalty. "The government has no business at all being in the business of killing people," he said.



In October 2013, one month before Franklin was executed in Missouri for racially motivated murders not related to the Flynt shooting, Flynt wrote in the Hollywood Reporter that he did not believe in the death penalty and did not want Franklin put to death, but wanted vengeance.



“I would love an hour in a room with him and a pair of wire-cutters and pliers so I could inflict the same damage on him that he inflicted on me,” Flynt said.



Flynt also launched a brief presidential campaign, running against Ronald Reagan in the 1984 election. He later supported Democrats, including endorsing Hillary Clinton's presidential run.



He was married five times and has four surviving children.]]>

The crisis, which started on Sunday, Feb 7, has made many residents remain indoors for their safety.



A statement by Muyiwa Adejobi, the Lagos police spokesperson on Monday, Feb 8, disclosed that the arrested suspects will be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba, for investigation.



Mr Adejobi said the command had deployed additional police personnel, including Police Mobile Force, to curtail the hoodlums and restore normalcy to the affected communities.

The statement quoted Hakeem Odumosu, the commissioner of police in the state, as saying that the "intelligence at the command’s disposal revealed that the hoodlums came from Otta axis of Ogun State to lay siege on the affected border communities on cult-related crises and the command has been repelling them."



"Items recovered from them included dangerous weapons, assorted charms and weeds suspected to be Indian hemp," the police added.

Odumosu called on community leaders in Alakuko, Dalemo and Kola areas to support the police in combating the crises and getting rid of the criminals in their respective areas and in the state at large.



He assured that the command is working with the Ogun State Police Command to reduce the activities of the hoodlums and cultists in the border areas and towns across the state to the barest level.

Young girl gang-raped in Benue by 4 boys who filmed the crime http://nairaplace.com//2995/young-girl-gang-raped-in-benue-by-4-boys-who-filmed-the-crime-.html


Benue activist, Ukan Kurugh, who disclosed this on Tuesday, said he watched a video of the crime but he won't share it.



According to Kurugh, parents of the suspects are shielding them from being arrested by the police while father of the victim is not willing to speak up.



"I was depressed yesterday when I came about a story and video clip of over 2mins done by one of the 3-4 boys who ganged raped a young girl in Obi LGA of Benue State," he wrote.



"The parents of the boys are making things difficult for the police by shieding/protrcting them from arrest while the father of the girl is also protecting his own status by not wanting to speak. The clan head of the said village has been very fishy & cunning in the whole matter wanting it closed.



"I will be doing an open letter to the Benue State Governor today pleading with him to mandate the Obi LG chairman to produce those boys for onward prosecution.



Please nobody should ask me for the video because I won't transfer it to anyone no matter how close we are. Thanks. ]]>

Elderly man dies just 25 minutes after receiving COVID vaccine http://nairaplace.com//2994/elderly-man-dies-just-25-minutes-after-receiving-covid-vaccine.html

The man, who was in his 70s, fell as he left Manhattan's Jacob Javits Convention Center just 25 minutes after receiving his shot, New York State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker said in a statement.


He was pronounced dead at a local hospital shortly after he was rushed there.


It's currently unclear if the man's death is linked to the vaccine, but an investigation is now underway.


'Initial indications are that the man did not have any allergic reaction to the vaccine,' Zucker said in his statement.



The man's sudden collapsing followed a mandatory 15-minute observation period, in which he 'exhibited no adverse reactions or any distress,' Zucker added.


The FDNY said the patient was taken to the hospital by Senior Care just before 11 am Sunday, where he died shortly after arriving.


The identity of the man has not yet been revealed by officials. It's also unclear which type of COVID-19 vaccine he received.


In his statement, Zucker stressed that he and other public health experts believe the vaccine 'is safe, and together with continued vigilance including wearing a mask and social distancing, it will bring an end to this pandemic.'


'I encourage all eligible New Yorkers to get vaccinated,' Zucker continued.


So far, nearly one million people in New York City have been vaccinated, with 1.5 million residents having received their first doses statewide.



In total, nearly 42 million doses have so far been administered in the US.



One dose of a vaccine has been administered to 31,579,100 million people, which equals to 9.6 percent of the population. While over 9,147,000 Americans have now received both doses of a vaccine, amounting to 2.78 percent of the population.]]>

Cryptocurrencies have become well-suited for conducting many illegal activities - CBN http://nairaplace.com//2985/cryptocurrencies-have-become-well-suited-for-conducting-many-illegal-activities-cbn.html


The apex bank in a statement released on Sunday February 7, said cryptocurrencies have become well-suited for conducting many illegal activities including money laundering, terrorism financing, purchase of small arms and light weapons, and tax evasion.



Daily Trust reported that CBN's Acting Director of Corporate Communications, Osita Nwanisobi said the ban on such transactions will not have any negative impact on fintechs.



It read;



“The use of cryptocurrencies in Nigeria are a direct contravention of existing law.

“It is also important to highlight that there is a critical difference between a Central Bank issued Digital Currency and cryptocurrencies. As the names imply, while Central Banks can issue Digital Currencies, cryptocurrencies are issued by unknown and unregulated entities.

“The question that one may need to ask therefore is, why any entity would disguise its transactions if they were legal.

“It is on the basis of this opacity that cryptocurrencies have become well-suited for conducting many illegal activities including money laundering, terrorism financing, purchase of small arms and light weapons, and tax evasion.

“Many banks and investors who place a high value on reputation have been turned off from cryptocurrencies because of the damaging effects of the widespread use of cryptocurrencies for illegal activities.

“The role of cryptocurrencies in the purchase of hard and illegal drugs on the darknet website called “Silk Road” is well known. They have also been recent reports that cryptocurrencies have been used to finance terror plots, further damaging its image as a legitimate means of exchange.

“More also, repeated and recent evidence now suggests that some cryptocurrencies have become more widely used as speculative assets rather than as means of payment, thus explaining the significant volatility and variability in their prices.”]]>

Petrol price may hit N190 http://nairaplace.com//2984/petrol-price-may-hit-n190.html


Top officials of two major marketers’ associations who spoke to Punch, said the continued increase in oil prices had brought back petrol subsidy as the pump price of petrol should be between N185 and N200 per litre to reflect the further rise in crude oil prices.



Executive Secretary/Chief Executive Officer, Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria, Mr Clement Isong who faulted the continous sale of fuel at N160 and N165 per litre in many filling stations in Lagos, said it meant somebody is bearing the cost of subsidy which the country cannot afford at this time.



Isong said;



“Members of my association are operating in Nigeria and care about the long-term sustainability of the industry as well as the country itself.

“So, we know that depending on what exchange rate you use, the pump price should be between N185 and N200 per litre.

“For as long as we continue to sell the product at what we are currently selling it, then somebody is bearing the cost of subsidy, and the country really cannot afford subsidy at this time.”



Isong added that while the demand for petrol had increased significantly in the country, the security of supply had been threatened. He also noted that smuggling might have resumed because of the significantly different prices across the borders which were recently opened.



He added;



“So, we need to completely restructure our entire supply chain. We need to reach a place where, if deregulation takes effect, refining will resume in Nigeria. We need to find a way of making sure that Nigerians benefit from deregulation. That, I believe, is what the discussion must be.”



Even though the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation has been the sole importer of petrol into the country in recent years and is still being relied upon by marketers for the supply of the product despite the deregulation of the downstream petroleum sector, Private oil marketing companies have continued to lament that their inability to access foreign exchange at the official rates has hampered efforts to resume petrol importation.



National Operation Controller, Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, Mr Mike Osatuyi who reacted to the federal government's recent announcement of commencement of discussions with representatives of the labour movement on how to raise the freight rate from N7.51 per litre to N9.11 per litre, affirmed that its implementation would lead to petrol price increase as the increase in oil prices had already pushed up the pump prices of diesel and kerosene in the country.



Osatuyi said;



“Already, we are back to subsidy, and from the information I have which is confirmed, the Federal Government is subsidising about N1.8bn per day because 70 million litres are being pumped out every day now because the borders have been opened; I don’t know where the fuel is going.

“Government cannot afford subsidy, and there is no subsidy in the budget. So, the market fundamentals have to come to force now.

“Based on $56 per barrel of crude oil, our pump price should be about N186 to N190. But now that oil price has even gone to $59, then pump price should not be less than N200 per litre. There is no way Nigerians can avoid petrol price increase.”



While there are concerns on if the NNPC would again bear the latest subsidy cost on behalf of the government if the pump price of petrol is left unchanged amid the rise in oil prices, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of the Corporation, Dr Kennie Obateru said whatever would be done regarding petrol pump price would be based on the advice from the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency.



Obateru said;



“The point is that NNPC is the only one importing the product (petrol) for now. We are looking forward to other marketers joining in the importation of the product, so that the burden will not just be on NNPC."



When asked if the NNPC had started bearing subsidy cost, he said;



“I think it would be premature to say because it has to be based on whatever PPPRA works out as to the pricing. The market is already deregulated.”



He further averred that the desire of government was to have a fully deregulated market.]]>

A 25-year-old woman was savaged to death by her family's rescue dog after it reportedly chewed her arm off as she lay in bed.



Keira Ladlow, was alone at a house in the Kitts Green area of Birmingham, England, when she was attacked by the dog.



Police and paramedics were called to the property at 2pm Friday, Feb 5, after a relative raised the alarm and Ms Ladlow was pronounced dead at the scene.

Abeygail Barrett, believed to be a relative, posted on Facebook that Ms Ladlow had found the dog "in a garden".



She wrote: "Her previous dog was a pit bull that died of cancer so she rescued this dog after finding it in a garden where it had been on and off for four years.



"Sometimes dogs are rescued with all good intentions but their past can make them tragically unpredictable."

A source also told the publication that Ms Ladlow was "screaming and shouting for help" and the bark from the dog was also "incredibly loud".



West Midlands Police said no one else was in the property at the time and the Staffordshire cross dog was handed over to officers to be put down.

Romanian Church under fire as six-week-old baby dies in baptism http://nairaplace.com//2980/romanian-church-under-fire-as-six-week-old-baby-dies-in-baptism-.html

The baby boy reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest during the Baptism on Monday and was rushed to hospital but died a few hours later, with autopsy revealing liquid in his lungs.



Prosecutors have now opened a manslaughter investigation against the priest in the north-eastern city of Suceava.



An online petition calling for changes to the ritual had gathered more than 56,000 signatures by Thursday evening.



“The death of a newborn baby because of this practice is a huge tragedy,” said a message with the petition. “This risk must be ruled out for the joy of baptism to triumph.”



Due to several similar incidents in recent years, Church spokesman, Vasile Banescu had suggested that priests pour a little water on the baby’s forehead instead of immersing infants three times in holy water. But Archbishop Teodosie, leader of the Church’s traditionalist wing, said the ritual would not change.



More than 80% of Romanians are Orthodox and the Church is one of the most trusted institutions, according to recent opinion polls.]]>

Scientists discover 'Smallest reptile on earth' the size of a seed in Madagascar (photos) http://nairaplace.com//2977/scientists-discover-smallest-reptile-on-earth-the-size-of-a-seed-in-madagascar-photos-.html

Two of the tiny reptiles were discovered by a German-Madagascan expedition team in Madagascar.



The reptile has been named Brookesia nana, or nano-chameleon.



The male has a body of just 13.5mm which makes it the smallest of about 11,500 known species of reptiles, according to the Bavarian State collection of Zoology in Munich.




Its length from top to tail is 22mm (0.86in).




The female is far bigger at around 29mm, the institute said, adding that other specimens were yet to be located, despite "great effort".


"The new chameleon is only known from a degraded montane rainforest in northern Madagascar and might be threatened by extinction," said the Scientific Reports journal.


Oliver Hawlitschek, a scientist at the Center of Natural History in Hamburg, said: "The nano-chameleon's habitat has unfortunately been subject to deforestation, but the area was placed under protection recently, so the species will survive."


Researchers found that the reptile hunts for mites on the rainforest floor and hides from predators at night in blades of grass.



Dr Mark Scherz, one of the researchers involved in the discovery, called it "a spectacular case of extreme miniaturisation".


"So this tiny new chameleon violates the pattern of the smallest species being found on small islands. That suggests that something else is allowing/causing these chameleons to miniaturise," Scherz added.



Scientists have now recommended that the chameleon be listed as critically endangered in the International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species to help protect it and its habitat.]]>

According to eyewitnesses, the deceased persons identified as Kenneth Emekwasianya, 70, Grace Emekwasianya, 56, his wife, Chioma Emekwasianya, their daughter, 36, and Emeka Ntukokwu, 42, a secondary school teacher, were in the church for their midweek service. A masked gunman came into the church premises riding on a motorcycle, popularly called Okada. The masked man reportedly walked into the church and rained bullets on the affected persons and thereafter took the keys of Mercedes C Class car belonging to Mr Emekwasianya.



The accomplices of the masked man who were lurking around entered the Mercedes Benz and sped off with it. However, the car, which developed a gear problem, was abandoned in Okija, a neighbouring town to Azia.



Unconfirmed reports claim the killers left a note stating that Mr Kenneth was killed because he collected the money the Niger Delta Power Holding Company paid to the community as compensation for the destruction of an economic tree and other structures while the company implemented the National Integrated Power Project, NIPP, in Azia. Part of the note read: “Keep on running but you cannot hide all the time. You took our money.”



Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, Mohammed Haruna, said

''Investigation is ongoing to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident and effort is being intensified in order to arrest perpetrators of the dastardly act and bring them to justice.'']]>

His comment caused a lot of reactions as many felt his answer was disrespectful to Erica.

However, in a Question and Answer session with his fans on IG, Kiddwaya gave an explanation as to why he gave such an answer. He described Erica as his ''Girlfriend at the time'', implying that they are no longer a couple.

Here's the 'haram' hairstyle that led to the arrest of a barber in Kano http://nairaplace.com//2966/here-s-the-haram-hairstyle-that-led-to-the-arrest-of-a-barber-in-kano.html


Recall that a young barber from Benue State identified as Elijah Ode was reportedly arrested on Wednesday, Jan 27, in Kano for blasphemy

Elijah, a student, was picked up after two of his customers were seen with hairstyles deemed blasphemous to the Islamic religion.



He was arraigned in court on Tuesday, February 2, and later remanded.



According to the teachings of Islam, any hairstyle that entails shaving some part of the head and leaving the other unshaved is impermissible or at the least disliked and explicitly prohibited by the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace).

The teachings of Islam states that, "The one who cuts his hair should make it all the same length. The one who cuts his hair on the sides of his head more than the middle comes under the heading of qaza’, which is forbidden."



However, Elijah is not a Muslim yet this didn't deter his arrest. ]]>

NYSC resident officer in Kano dies of COVID19 http://nairaplace.com//2963/nysc-resident-officer-in-kano-dies-of-covid19.html


DailyTrust reports that the deceased who was the representative of the Director-General of the scheme at the camp was earlier evacuated from the NYSC orientation camp in Kusala Dam, Karaye, about 95 kilometers from Kano metropolis after testing positive for the infection. He was deployed from the headquarters to supervise the ongoing regimental orientation exercise expected to come to an end on February 8 in Kano.



A source in the scheme who spoke on condition of anonymity revealed that the Resident officer was tested positive for COVID19 at the facilities provided in the camp and was immediately taken to Kwanar Dawaki Isolation Centre on Monday, February 1. Sadly, he died on Tuesday, February 2.



Confirming the development, the management of the scheme said the unnamed official was on official assignment in Kano State for the 2020 Batch ‘B’ Stream 2 Orientation exercise where he was tested and confirmed positive at the gate leading to his evacuation to the isolation centres where he died.

“The Management of the NYSC regrets to announce the sad loss of our committed and dedicated staff while on official assignment in Kano State, for the 2020 Batch ‘B’ Stream 2 Orientation exercise.

“The officer was tested for COVID-19, as precondition for admittance to the Orientation camp, just like all other camp officials and prospective Corps Members in the 37 NYSC Orientation camps nationwide, as prescribed by the Presidential Task Force on COVID – 19 and Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, (NCDC).

“The test result was positive for the officer, and was subsequently moved to the Kano State Isolation Centre for proper care but unfortunately succumbed to the Virus.”the statement read



The Economic Sustainability Committee led by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo had in June last year called on the Federal Government to consider suspending the NYSC orientation camp exercises for two years. The Federal government however ignored the advice and reopened the camps in November 2020.



Since the camps were reopened, many corps members have tested positive for COVID-19. ]]>

Fr. Ugwu, who is currently on a missionary journey in Malawi, took to his Facebook page on Thursday, January 29, to write about how the world is obsessed with sex and women's nakedness.



According to the priest, everything from products to music, movies won't sell unless pictures and videos of naked women are attached to them.



He further said that women are equally to be blamed for the obsession as they care about their physical appearance...hips or breasts size more than the size of their investment.



"It is like a competition. Who is having more curves? Whose back is bigger? Whose waist is tinier? Is her stomach flat? Who twerks better? Can you show us what your mama gave you" he wrote. Read his post below:



Porn In Silhouette

We know this. Let us not pretend that it is new. The world is obsessed with nakedness especially women's nakedness. The world is obsessed with sex.



Over and over, women's bodies have been objectified. Women themselves helped to make this possible.



To sell roofing sheets, you need a naked woman in the advert. Don't ask what is the connection. . . The roofing sheet itself is naked.



When it comes to music, our generation seemed to have taken the objectification of women's bodies to another level.



We sing and dance to songs whose lyrics are all about certain parts of the woman's body and how she can be used only as an object of bedroom satisfaction.



It doesn't matter if the artist is male or female. In fact, check out the lyrics of most female artists, it is usually about how men should spend money on them if they want to have their "backs" on the ground. They call it "money for hand, back for ground."



And so, while a man wearing three piece suit or agbada is defined as sexy, the women with him in the same musical video will have to put on what they call g-strings with bra displaying her cleavages to be sexy.



I find it rather amusing and also nauseating how one man will be usually crowded with dozens of half naked girls, each twerking while the man watches as though measuring which of the naked bodies before him is worth his money.



This is why on the average, a girl of this era will most likely think about her hips or breasts size more than her bank or investment size. And even if she thinks about her bank size, it is often on how it will be used to enhance her hips size through the use of silicone.



Every picture taken, every status update, there is a need to show off the body. And when ladies make videos of themselves, try and listen to their fellow ladies behind the camera asking them to "turn around and show what you have got" or "kill them with hotness."



It is like a competition. Who is having more curves? Whose back is bigger? Whose waist is tinier? Is her stomach flat? Who twerks better? Can you show us what your mama gave you?



Another name for it is marketing. That is where the phrase "show your selling point" emerged from.



This is why I am not surprised at the silhouette challenge going viral. Most will tell you it is for fun or a way of feeling good in one's body. . .bla bla bla. . . Well, mark this, time is coming when the red lights will be removed, and it will be justified as well. Don't worry, just be patient. After all, Adam and Eve were created without clothes.



Shey dey are mocking their fellow girl who felt disgusted about the whole trend and made a video condemning it? They are laughing at her because she pronounced Sodom and Gomorrah as "Soduim and Gomorrah". They said she is a village girl, she does not know what's up. And the men are angry because she is putting "sand" on top their cheap porn. There are men as well who have joined the challenge. Everybody wants to trend.



Well, I am here to remind you that as far as Christian morals are concerned, that challenge is immoral. I am saying this because the majority of those carrying this on their heads are Christians who will be at the front seats on Sunday for praise and worship.



It does not matter which angle you want to look at it. Yes, we all know it is your body. But it is important we remind you that what you are serving is pornography presented as silhouette. You are a porn star in the making. You will soon blow. Mtchwww.]]>

Judge weeps after DNA test revealed he is not the father of his three adult children http://nairaplace.com//2954/judge-weeps-after-dna-test-revealed-he-is-not-the-father-of-his-three-adult-children.html


In a statement released by the High Court Judge, he accused his former wife Celia Juliet Ototo of cheating during their marriage which ended 11 years ago.



Okorodas who said he was first notified of the paternity fraud by an anonymous source, said the repulsive act of his ex-wife prompted him to conduct DNA tests on all his children.



Recounting how his wife walked away from their marriage when her youngest child (who is now 17 years of age) was just 6-years-old, the Judge said the DNA test uncovered that his wife cheated while still married to him.



The statement read;



PRESS STATEMENT: BY HON. JUSTICE ANTHONY EZONFADE OKORODAS

Ladies and gentlemen of the Press, I thank you for attending this press conference. I have taken the decision to address the Press in respect of certain traumatic developments that have arisen between me and my ex-wife, Barrister Celia Juliet Ototo of the Ototo Family of Ovom in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State. It is now nearly 11 years since our separation and divorce. This Press Statement is important in order to prevent damaging speculations, half-truths and outright lies from persons who may want to cash in on the tragedy that has befallen my home.

Sometime during the coronavirus lockdowns early last year, I received information from an anonymous source that indicated that the last of the three children from my previous marriage was in fact not my biological child. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions at the time, I had to wait until August 2020 to carry out a DNA test. The DNA test result which came out in September 2020 confirmed that I was not the biological father of the child.

Consequently, I convened a joint meeting between my extended family on the one side, and Celia’s paternal and maternal families (i.e., the Ototo Family of Ovom Town and the Agbagidi Family of Yenagoa Town) on the other side, where I confronted her with the paternity fraud allegation.

Although she initially strongly insisted that I was the biological father, she has since confessed to having the child with another man during the course of our marriage.

This repulsive act of my ex-wife prompted me to conduct DNA tests in respect of the two other children. A few days ago, the results came out. Sadly, none of them is my biological child.

This abomination has caused excruciating mental trauma to me, my present wife, Barrister (Mrs) Ebi Okorodas and all of the innocent children involved. This is particularly so for Ebi, who has had to agree to have DNA tests on the four children of our own marriage. Thankfully, the test results confirm each of them to be my biological child.

It is important to state that Celia walked away from the marriage when her youngest child (who is now 17 years of age) was just 6 years old. Since then, all of her children have lived with my wife, Ebi and I, and we have been wholly responsible for their wellbeing and education.

Friends who are close to my family would readily attest to the fact that unless specifically informed, no one could tell that the children were not the biological children of my present wife.

Ebi and I would continue to support the children in any way that we can. Indeed, even after the release of the first DNA test result which proved that I was not the biological father of the last child, we have continued to pay for his education in a private boarding school. The two other children are University undergraduates. The first, a female, will be a graduate later this year, and the second will soon enter his 4th year of study. We pray for them to overcome the trauma and become responsible citizens of our country.

For Celia and her boyfriend or boyfriends, we leave them to their conscience. Thank you very much.

The Hon. Justice Anthony Ezonfade Okorodas, PhD. Judge
High Court of Delta State

Kim Kardashian's alleged Paris attacker releases tell-all book detailing events http://nairaplace.com//2947/kim-kardashian-s-alleged-paris-attacker-releases-tell-all-book-detailing-events.html


Yunice Abbas, who has never been pictured, was one of five men accused of breaking into Kim Kardashian's hotel room and stealing $10million worth of jewellery on October 2, 2016.



Kim had been staying at the Hotel de Pourtalès complex, after visiting France for Paris Fashion Week.



During the attack, Kim was tied up and held at gunpoint.



An alleged excerpt from the book, which is titled "I sequestered Kim Kardashian", has been published in the French edition of Closer magazine.



In the book, Abbas reportedly says: "In the most complete haste, I pick up the valuables. This time, my rear wheel is punctured.



"As I passed a marauding police car, a totally incongruous telephone ringing made me jump. Before my incredulous eyes, a name then appeared on the luminous screen. Not possible … I’m hallucinating!"



Abbas later went on to claim that he and the rest of the group had relied heavily on the help of elderly people when they were scanning the building as they hatched a plan to rob the reality star.



He continued: "What could be more reassuring than elderly people, as peaceful as they are anonymous, in order to glean as much information as possible on the spot."



He also claimed that Kim and her secretary had reportedly called 911 (American emergency number) repeatedly at the beginning of the robbery, despite being in France.



During a chat with David Letterman on his Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, Kim claimed that the group of men were all wearing masks and dressed as police officers.



She went on to say that there were two of the men in the room with her and they'd also brought in the hotel's concierge with them, with a gun held to his head.



Kim explained: "They were yelling at me in French and I just sat up and they kept on saying 'the ring, the ring,' and I was just so startled."

Ahmad Ahmad restored as CAF president by CAS http://nairaplace.com//2942/ahmad-ahmad-restored-as-caf-president-by-cas.html


He was banned by FIFA in November for five years after football's world governing body found him to have breached several of its ethics codes.



At that time, the FIFA ethics committee found “Ahmad had breached his duty of loyalty, offered gifts and other benefits, mismanaged funds and abused his position as the CAF President.”



Ahmad, a former government official in Madagascar, was also fined 200,000 Swiss francs ($220,000).



The 61-year-old appealed his decision at CAS, which issued a preliminary ruling on Friday January 29.

I conspired with my herdsman friend to abduct and kill my nephews- suspect http://nairaplace.com//2940/i-conspired-with-my-herdsman-friend-to-abduct-and-kill-my-nephews-suspect-.html


The Nation reports that the two children were kidnapped on January 26, 2021, on a football field around the Iludun area, Osogbo, while the parents reported the case at the police station in the area before the matter was transferred to State Criminal Investigation Department.



Confessing to the crime, Muyideen said the two abductees were the children of his elder brother, accusing the herdsman of talking him into abducting them.



“The herdsman talked me into kidnapping them. He is my friend. We have lived together since childhood. When we got to the field where Thompson and Samson were, I told them to follow me and they did because I am the younger brother of their daddy.

We didn’t know that they could die. The phones we used in contacting the parents was tracked by the police and we were arrestedhe said”



On his part, Memudu said

“I am a Fulani herdsman. I abducted two children with the help of Muyideen who is their family member. We went to the football field where the children were playing and abducted the two of them.

We took them on a commercial bike to a forest where my cattle do feed around Coker area, Osogbo. I know the terrain very well. We were in the forest for four days, giving the children bread and soft drink.

We contacted the parents and demanded N25 million ransom. I wanted to use the ransom to start a business. We gave them six days to provide the ransom but, unfortunately, the two children died on the fourth day after the rope we used to tie them to a tree strangulated them.

When those children died, we did not contact the parents again. We left the corpses there and they discovered the bodies four days after.”



While parading them at the Police Command, Osogbo, the two accused persons showed no remorse as Memudu kept assuring Muyideen that they would be released after a few days.



Commenting on their arrest, the state Commissioner of Police, Olawale Olokode, said

“The bodies of the two children of have been recovered inside the bush around Oke-Baale area, Osogbo and deposited at State University Teaching Hospital morgue, Osogbo for autopsy.

The suspects will be arraigned in court after the completion of the investigation.”

Hollywood Icon, Cicely Tyson dies at 96 http://nairaplace.com//2934/-hollywood-icon-cicely-tyson-dies-at-96.html


According to a statement from her manager, Larry Thompson, she died on Thursday afternoon, January 28.



"With heavy heart, the family of Miss Cicely Tyson announces her peaceful transition this afternoon. At this time, please allow the family their privacy," Thompson said in a statement.



“I have managed Miss Tyson’s career for over 40 years, and each year was a privilege and blessing. Cicely thought of her new memoir as a Christmas tree decorated with all the ornaments of her personal and professional life. Today she placed the last ornament, a Star, on top of the tree.”



The statement did not reveal the cause of death.



The actress chronicled her lengthy career in her first memoir, "Just As I Am," which was just released on Tuesday, two days before her death.



Tyson made her film debut with a small role in 1957’s “Twelve Angry Men” and her formal debut in the 1959 Sidney Poitier film “Odds Against Tomorrow,” followed by “The Comedians,” “The Last Angry Man,” “A Man Called Adam” and “The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter.”



In 1974, she starred in "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman," a television movie based on a novel by Ernest Gaines. Tyson was the title character, a woman born into slavery who lives well into the 20th century and takes part in African Americans' struggles for civil rights.



She won two Emmys for the role, best actress in a drama and actress of the year. During her career, she would win a total of three Emmy Awards out of 15 nominations.



Throughout her career Tyson refused to play drug addicts, prostitutes or maids, roles she thought demeaning to Black women. She played former slaves, civil rights icons, sharecroppers, truthtellers, mothers, bringing a sense of depth, nobility, and grace to every character.



Her filmography includes some of the most celebrated movies and television shows featuring Black women in major roles: "Sounder" (1972), "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman" (1974), "Roots" (1977), "The Marva Collins Story" (1981), "The Women of Brewster Place" (1989), and "The Help" (2011).



In November 2018, Tyson became the first African-American woman to receive an honorary Oscar. She was also inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame and was chosen to be inducted into the Television Academy's Hall of Fame in 2020.



Tyson married jazz trumpeter Miles Davis in 1981, but their union ended in divorce in 1988.



In 2013, she reflected on her one and only marriage in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon, describing her relationship with the jazz legend as "tumultuous" but one that also included "some of the most incredible moments in my life."



The death of the renowned actress drew an outpouring of tributes from Hollywood stars and far beyond.

Frank Lampard 'to be sacked by Chelsea today with Thomas Tuchel to replace him' http://nairaplace.com//2915/frank-lampard-to-be-sacked-by-chelsea-today-with-thomas-tuchel-to-replace-him-.html

'No more filming s3x scenes with male directors, it's uncomfortable' - Keira Knightley http://nairaplace.com//2914/-no-more-filming-s3x-scenes-with-male-directors-it-s-uncomfortable-keira-knightley-.html

The Aftermath, Star wars, King Arthur, atonement and Pirates of the Caribbean actress says she will no longer do any nude or sex scenes if the director is male.


"It's partly vanity and also it's the male gaze," she told the Chanel Connects podcast.

"I feel very uncomfortable now trying to portray the male gaze."


According to her, while she understands that some directors need "somebody to look hot" for their film's sex scene, that's just not her anymore.

"I don't want it to be that kind of, ugh, those horrible sex scenes where you're all greased up and everybody's grunting," she added. "I'm not interested in doing that."


According to her, she understands that some films do benefit artistically from sharing a nude or sex experience but it's not an experience that suits her at this point in her life.


"You can use somebody else," she explained.

"Because I'm too vain and the body has had two children now and I'd just rather not stand in front of a group of men naked."


"If I was making a story that was about that journey of motherhood and body [acceptance]," I feel that might be different.



But, "I feel like, I'm sorry, but that would have to be with a female filmmaker. I don't have an absolute ban, but I kind of do with men," the actress explained.

Man cuts off his father's head then wears the dead man's intestines round his neck http://nairaplace.com//2907/man-cuts-off-his-father-s-head-then-wears-the-dead-man-s-intestines-round-his-neck.html


Dmitry Ponomarenko from Odessa is accused of stabbing his 53-year-old dad multiple times on Jan 20, 2021, after an argument broke out between them.



A Kiev district court was told that Ponomarenko cut off his father's head and ripped open his stomach, before turning the knife on a 32-year-old neighbour who rented a room from the family, killing him instantly.



The prosecutor in court claims that then Ponomarenko, who reportedly has a wife and small child, went out into the street with his father's head and intestines around his neck.



Local media claimed Ponomarenko emerged from his flat on January 20 covered in blood and was hitting cars with his dad’s head.



One resident told a reporter: "A naked and bloodied man, wrapped in guts and holding the head of a man came out of the front, sat on a bench and lit a cigarette."



While being questioned by police on the day he killed his father and their 32-year-old tenant, he told police that "he is a god who is not worshipped".

Before the court session, Ponomarenko told reporters that the murder was "a ritual in which I convinced myself that I was all around, and that everyone was watching me and I was watching everyone."



Prosecutor Valery Boldyrev asked for Ponomarenko to remain in custody, arguing that he had no permanent place of residence or work and could commit a crime again.



Ponomarenko himself pleaded guilty and said that he "should be kept in custody."


A police spokesman said on the day of the killings: "We received calls from shocked people reporting a man walking in the neighbourhood with a severed head in his hand."

According to reports, he was fired from his job at the Duke Hotel the previous day for being under the influence of drugs and inappropriate behaviour.



When asked why he had carried out the killings, Ponomarenko allegedly told witnesses "he had to".



Ponomarenko could face 15 years in prison if convicted of double murder.]]>

Nnamdi Kanu reacts to IGP's order for the arrest of Sunday Igboho http://nairaplace.com//2906/nnamdi-kanu-reacts-to-igp-s-order-for-the-arrest-of-sunday-igboho.html

Last week, Ondo state Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, issued a seven day ultimatum to herdsmen occupying Ondo state forests to vacate the state accusing them of banditry and incessant killings. The eultimatum expires on Sunday January 24.



In reaction to the ultimatum the Presidency stated that no one has right to tell herdsmen where to live.


Oyo state Youth leader, Sunday Igboho held rallies this week in the South West giving herdsmen quit notice to leave the state and accusing them of incessant robberies and kidnapping in the state

He even dared the Oyo state Governor, Seyi Makinde to come and arrest him for defending his people.


On Friday, the Inspector-general of police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu ordered the arrest of Sunday Igboho, over the quit notice.



The IGP directed Oyo commissioner of police, Ngozi Onadeko to arrest Igboho and transfer him to Abuja.



In another twist, the National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Abdullahi Bodejo in a new interview declared that nobody has the power to remove Fulani herdsmen from the state’s forests.


Bodejo claimed the Fulani's own all the land in Nigeria and they value cows more than human beings. He said the Fulanis have settled in the Ondo Forest reserves for over 250 years and will not obey anybody to leave the place.



Nnamdi Kanu, has now reacted to the development.


On Saturday evening, January 23, Kanu wrote;

"Before your very eyes, Nigeria is turning to a pathetic APARTHEID State, mercilessly implementing the supremacy of one tribe over all others. And you do nothing. Incredible!"]]>

Girl, 10, strangles herself to death while partaking in shocking TikTok challenge http://nairaplace.com//2902/girl-10-strangles-herself-to-death-while-partaking-in-shocking-tiktok-challenge.html


Antonella Sicomero was found lifeless on the bathroom floor by her four-year-old sister in Palermo, Sicily.



Like the dangerous Blue Whale challenge, the TikTok craze Antonella is feared to have joined a sick game that has been popular on TikTok over the past year.



She told her family she was going for a shower but investigators are said to believe she was really filming herself while taking part in the online craze.



Antonella's heartbroken dad Angelo said another of Antonella's sisters told him she had been taking part in a TikTok challenge, La Repubblica reports.



He told the paper: "Antonella was playing the game of asphyxiation.



"My daughter, little Antonella, died because of an extreme game on TikTok, how can I accept it?"



ANSA media agency reports that she arrived at the hospital in cardiac arrest on Thursday, Jan 21.



Doctors fought to save her life but she was later declared brain dead and in an irreversible coma.



Her organs were donated to save three other children before her life support was switched off.



Police in Sicily have seized Antonella's phone and are investigating possible links to social media sites, according to reports.



Experts have warned of the risks associated with these challenges, including fainting, seizures, brain damage, and even death.



Public prosecutors in Palermo have opened two investigations for "instigation to suicide".



TikTok said they would be fully cooperating with authorities.



A spokesman said: "Our deepest sympathies are with the girl's family and friends.



"We do not allow content that encourages, promotes, or glorifies dangerous behaviour that might lead to injury, and our teams work diligently to identify and remove content that violates our policies.



"While we have not currently found evidence of content on our platform that might have encouraged such an incident off-platform, we will continue to monitor closely as part of our continuous commitment to keep our community safe.



"We will also assist the relevant authorities with their investigation as appropriate."

Mom, 25, murders her 5 kids, burns down house with their bodies inside http://nairaplace.com//2897/mom-25-murders-her-5-kids-burns-down-house-with-their-bodies-inside-.html

Myers, was the mother of three of the kids and stepmother to the two others, according to police and shot all five in the head with a shotgun.


Myers shot each of the children inside the house, then walked outside and turned the gun on herself, police said. The children's names were Shaun Bumgarner, 7; Riley Bumgarner, 6; Kian Myers, 4; Arikyle Myers, 3; and Haiken Myers, 1.


Myers and her husband, Brian Bumgarner, lived in the tiny town of Williamsburg, W.Va., about 30 miles from the Virginia state line in southeast West Virginia.


Her husband was staying with relatives on Dec. 8, the day the tragic incident occured because his car had broken down and he needed transportation to work.


Investigators say they found several text messages from Myers to Bumgarner before Dec. 8.


“You’ll have nothing to come back to but [a] corpse. No one cares why should I?” Myers wrote in one text.


“Money will come and go, once I go there’s no replacing me. I beg and cry for help but never get it. It’s my mental health that needs tending to–help me– I do not care anymore.”



Myers left three separate notes besides her body, including a chilling confession.


“I had shot all of the boys in the head. I had set house on fire. I had shot myself in the head,” Myers wrote.


“I’m sorry. Mental health is serious. I hope one day someone will help others like me. Mental health is not to joke about or taken lightly. When someone begs, pleads, cries out for help, please help them. You just might save a life or more lives.”


In another note, Myers wrote, “This is no one’s fault but my own. My demons won over me, and there’s no going back. So sorry I wasn’t strong enough.”


Police say Myers had no documented history of mental health problems and that Child Protective Services was never in contact with Bumgarner or Myers.


The County Sheriff Bruce Sloan, absolving any possibility of foul play, said physical evidence matched Myers’ account in her confession and encouraged anyone battling mental health issues to seek help.]]>

Ali Ay, 28, allegedly poured boiling water over Rukiye Ay, 23, because he had wanted to sleep and he saw her romantic gesture as a disturbance.



As a result, Rukiye suffered horrific injuries to her back, and was rushed to hospital in Turkey on January 9.

Speaking from her hospital bed, Rukiye claimed she had brought her husband breakfast in bed as a surprise, but he was angry that she had woken him up.



Rukiya says she then left her husband alone and went to eat breakfast with her daughter but Ali followed and threatened to divorce her.



He then allegedly poured boiling hot water down Rukiya's neck and tried to pour on her face but she turned away.



The scared mum said she tried to run away but she could feel her "T-shirt sticking" to her skin.

Ali is then accused of throwing the "rest of the boiling water" at Rukiya and she said some of it landed on their child's feet.



She said: "I prepared it all and then went to tell my husband he had breakfast in bed. He was angry and demanded to know why I woke him up, and told me not to bother him, so I started having breakfast with my daughter.



"He came in still in a bad mood and told me he was going to divorce me and gain custody of our daughter no matter what I did.



"He then poured boiling water down my neck. He was going to throw it in my face but I turned away.

“I ran away and could my T-shirt sticking to my skin. He then threw the rest of the boiling water at me and some of it landed on my child's feet and the rest hit me on the hip."



Rukiye said she wanted to "escape" but she passed out from the pain and could hear her daughter screaming in the background.



Ali then allegedly grabbed his wife's hair and dragged her to the bathroom, where Rukiye found strength and took the opportunity to run to a neighbour who called the police.



Police arrested him but he was later released on bail, sparking public fury, which resulted in him being re-arrested and remanded in custody.



Rukiye said: "I couldn't believe it, as long as he is free me and my daughter are in danger."]]>

Republican Lawmaker files articles of impeachment against Joe Biden http://nairaplace.com//2890/republican-lawmaker-files-articles-of-impeachment-against-joe-biden.html

The newly sworn in Rep. from Georgia, who has supported QANON conspiracy theories and criticized the 25,000 National Guard deployed to Washington D.C. to protect the presidential inauguration, took to Twitter to make her announcement.


"I’ve just filed articles of impeachment on President Joe Biden, we will see how this goes," Greene said.


She then immediately used her announcement to raise money for an "Impeach Joe Biden Fund."

In a press release, she accused Biden of "enabling bribery" and "blatant nepotism" by utilizing his son Hunter Biden’s position on the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma.


"President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the Presidency. His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama's Vice President is lengthy and disturbing," she wrote in a statement Thursday.


"President Biden has demonstrated that he will do whatever it takes to bail out his son, Hunter, and line his family's pockets with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies." She added

Biden has repeatedly denied involving U.S. foreign policy in Kiev with his son’s work.


Republicans in the Senate after months of investigation last year found no evidence of wrong doing from Biden.


Greene’s articles of impeachment are not expected to be taken serious as the house is controlled by Democrats.


Greene announced last week, just hours after the House’s historic second impeachment of President Trump, that she would bring articles of impeachment against Biden.


She took to Twitter Thursday to say the "inauguration looked like a one party military state takeover with 30k troops."


"People were told not to go & flags were planted to show the fake support," she claimed.]]>

Biden becomes America's 46th President as he is sworn in on the steps of the Capitol http://nairaplace.com//2886/biden-becomes-america-s-46th-president-as-he-is-sworn-in-on-the-steps-of-the-capitol-.html


After his swearing-in, he addressed the country for the first time as president and declared to the nation that "democracy has prevailed"



This comes after a chaotic transition where his predecessor Donald Trump denied he won the election and refused to congratulate him, ultimately resulting in violence as Trump supporters invaded the Capitol building two weeks before inauguration day.



"The will of the people has been heard, and the will of the people has been heeded," Biden said on the West Front of the Capitol.

He added: "We've learned again that democracy's precious, democracy's fragile. At this hour, my friends, democracy has prevailed."



Biden also paid tribute to the peaceful transfer of power and the resilience of American democracy, saying: "This is America's day. This is democracy's day - a day of history and hope, of renewal and resolve, for crucible for the ages America has tested anew and America has risen to the challenge. Today we celebrate not a candidate, but a cause, the cause of democracy.

The 78-year-old thanked his predecessors for being at his swearing-in.



Former Presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush attended though Donald Trump and his family did not. Donald Trump's Vice President, Mike Pence and his wife Karen were at Biden's inauguration too.

Biden said: "I thank my predecessors of both parties for their presence here today. I thank them from the bottom of my heart."



He added that he had spoken to former President Jimmy Carter on the phone the night before. Carter did not attend out of safety reasons because of the COVID pandemic.



Biden also acknowledged the attack that took place on the Capitol two weeks ago, when a pro-Trump mob stormed the building, leading to the death of 5 people.



"Now on this hallowed ground where just a few days ago violence sought to shake the capital's very foundation. We come together under one nation, under god, indivisible, to transfer the peaceful power as we have for two centuries," he said.]]>

Lady drags pastor to court over fake marital promise and squandering her money http://nairaplace.com//2877/lady-drags-pastor-to-court-over-fake-marital-promise-and-squandering-her-money.html


In her court papers, Tumba told the Honourable Nuhu Musa Garta-led court that she and the 28-year-old pastor met at a prayer meeting at Yolde Pate, a suburb of Yola South LGA in 2019, during which he told her that he saw a vision that she was his wife and he was her husband.



Tumba said the pastor immediately told her to ''sow a seed'' so she can key into the vision. She told the court that she began by first sowing a seed of N1,000. She said their relationship blossomed as the man of God began to visit her in her home which she built while working with a Non-Governmental organization. She said it was in the initial stage of their relationship that the clergyman promised to marry her.



A distraught Tumba told the court that while they were courting, the clergyman told her to resign from her place of work and sell off her house before they can get married. She said she did as he said, resigned from her job and sold her house for N500,000. According to her, when the money of the house was paid to her, she immediately transferred the sum of N50,000 as tithe into the account of the pastor and used the remaining money to support the church from time to time until all the money got finished.



She told the court that it got to a time that he asked her to give him the list of all items as provided by tradition for their marriage, which she did. Tumba told the court that the pastor even deceived her to travel to her village in Michika with a promise he will be coming with his family for their introduction. She said she was in her parent's house in the village for days without him nor his family showing up. She told the court that while in her village, she tried reaching him on phone but he refused to pick up his call. She told the court that she traveled back to Yola and received the shock of her life. Her clergyman boyfriend was nowhere to be found.



She lamented that the clergyman abandoned her after he squandered her money, made her quit her job, sold her only house, and became miserable, saying that she currently lives in one uncompleted building in Yolde Pate and sells vegetables to earn a living.



When the complaint from Tumba was read to the clergyman, he denied all the allegations. The clergyman was in court with another lady whom he had engaged.



The court thereafter adjourned the case till February 4 to enable Tumba to gather her witnesses for cross-examination.]]>

Donald Trump delivers farewell speech from White House http://nairaplace.com//2875/donald-trump-delivers-farewell-speech-from-white-house.html


In his address on his final full day in office and after having been out of public view for more than a week, Trump touted his legacy and wished luck to the new administration.



Below is the full text of his speech.



My fellow Americans: Four years ago, we launched a great national effort to rebuild our country, to renew its spirit, and to restore the allegiance of this government to its citizens. In short, we embarked on a mission to make America great again — for all Americans.



As I conclude my term as the 45th President of the United States, I stand before you truly proud of what we have achieved together. We did what we came here to do — and so much more.



This week, we inaugurate a new administration and pray for its success in keeping America safe and prosperous. We extend our best wishes, and we also want them to have luck — a very important word.



I’d like to begin by thanking just a few of the amazing people who made our remarkable journey possible.



First, let me express my overwhelming gratitude for the love and support of our spectacular First Lady, Melania. Let me also share my deepest appreciation to my daughter Ivanka, my son-in-law Jared, and to Barron, Don, Eric, Tiffany, and Lara. You fill my world with light and with joy.



I also want to thank Vice President Mike Pence, his wonderful wife Karen, and the entire Pence family.



Thank you as well to my Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows; the dedicated members of the White House Staff and the Cabinet; and all the incredible people across our administration who poured out their heart and soul to fight for America.



I also want to take a moment to thank a truly exceptional group of people: the United States Secret Service. My family and I will forever be in your debt. My profound gratitude as well to everyone in the White House Military Office, the teams of Marine One and Air Force One, every member of the Armed Forces, and state and local law enforcement all across our country.



Most of all, I want to thank the American people. To serve as your President has been an honor beyond description. Thank you for this extraordinary privilege. And that’s what it is — a great privilege and a great honor.



We must never forget that while Americans will always have our disagreements, we are a nation of incredible, decent, faithful, and peace-loving citizens who all want our country to thrive and flourish and be very, very successful and good. We are a truly magnificent nation.



All Americans were horrified by the assault on our Capitol. Political violence is an attack on everything we cherish as Americans. It can never be tolerated.



Now more than ever, we must unify around our shared values and rise above the partisan rancor, and forge our common destiny.



Four years ago, I came to Washington as the only true outsider ever to win the presidency. I had not spent my career as a politician, but as a builder looking at open skylines and imagining infinite possibilities. I ran for President because I knew there were towering new summits for America just waiting to be scaled. I knew the potential for our nation was boundless as long as we put America first.



So I left behind my former life and stepped into a very difficult arena, but an arena nevertheless, with all sorts of potential if properly done. America had given me so much, and I wanted to give something back.



Together with millions of hardworking patriots across this land, we built the greatest political movement in the history of our country. We also built the greatest economy in the history of the world. It was about “America First” because we all wanted to make America great again. We restored the principle that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Our agenda was not about right or left, it wasn’t about Republican or Democrat, but about the good of a nation, and that means the whole nation.



With the support and prayers of the American people, we achieved more than anyone thought possible. Nobody thought we could even come close.



We passed the largest package of tax cuts and reforms in American history. We slashed more job-killing regulations than any administration had ever done before. We fixed our broken trade deals, withdrew from the horrible Trans-Pacific Partnership and the impossible Paris Climate Accord, renegotiated the one-sided South Korea deal, and we replaced NAFTA with the groundbreaking USMCA — that’s Mexico and Canada — a deal that’s worked out very, very well.



Also, and very importantly, we imposed historic and monumental tariffs on China; made a great new deal with China. But before the ink was even dry, we and the whole world got hit with the China virus. Our trade relationship was rapidly changing, billions and billions of dollars were pouring into the U.S., but the virus forced us to go in a different direction.



The whole world suffered, but America outperformed other countries economically because of our incredible economy and the economy that we built. Without the foundations and footings, it wouldn’t have worked out this way. We wouldn’t have some of the best numbers we’ve ever had.



We also unlocked our energy resources and became the world’s number-one producer of oil and natural gas by far. Powered by these policies, we built the greatest economy in the history of the world. We reignited America’s job creation and achieved record-low unemployment for African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, women — almost everyone.



Incomes soared, wages boomed, the American Dream was restored, and millions were lifted from poverty in just a few short years. It was a miracle. The stock market set one record after another, with 148 stock market highs during this short period of time, and boosted the retirements and pensions of hardworking citizens all across our nation. 401(k)s are at a level they’ve never been at before. We’ve never seen numbers like we’ve seen, and that’s before the pandemic and after the pandemic.



We rebuilt the American manufacturing base, opened up thousands of new factories, and brought back the beautiful phrase: “Made in the USA.”



To make life better for working families, we doubled the child tax credit and signed the largest-ever expansion of funding for childcare and development. We joined with the private sector to secure commitments to train more than 16 million American workers for the jobs of tomorrow.



When our nation was hit with the terrible pandemic, we produced not one, but two vaccines with record-breaking speed, and more will quickly follow. They said it couldn’t be done but we did it. They call it a “medical miracle,” and that’s what they’re calling it right now: a “medical miracle.”



Another administration would have taken 3, 4, 5, maybe even up to 10 years to develop a vaccine. We did in nine months.



We grieve for every life lost, and we pledge in their memory to wipe out this horrible pandemic once and for all.



When the virus took its brutal toll on the world’s economy, we launched the fastest economic recovery our country has ever seen. We passed nearly $4 trillion in economic relief, saved or supported over 50 million jobs, and slashed the unemployment rate in half. These are numbers that our country has never seen before.



We created choice and transparency in healthcare, stood up to big pharma in so many ways, but especially in our effort to get favored-nations clauses added, which will give us the lowest prescription drug prices anywhere in the world.



We passed VA Choice, VA Accountability, Right to Try, and landmark criminal justice reform.



We confirmed three new justices of the United States Supreme Court. We appointed nearly 300 federal judges to interpret our Constitution as written.



For years, the American people pleaded with Washington to finally secure the nation’s borders. I am pleased to say we answered that plea and achieved the most secure border in U.S. history. We have given our brave border agents and heroic ICE officers the tools they need to do their jobs better than they have ever done before, and to enforce our laws and keep America safe.



We proudly leave the next administration with the strongest and most robust border security measures ever put into place. This includes historic agreements with Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, along with more than 450 miles of powerful new wall.



We restored American strength at home and American leadership abroad. The world respects us again. Please don’t lose that respect.



We reclaimed our sovereignty by standing up for America at the United Nations and withdrawing from the one-sided global deals that never served our interests. And NATO countries are now paying hundreds of billions of dollars more than when I arrived just a few years ago. It was very unfair. We were paying the cost for the world. Now the world is helping us.



And perhaps most importantly of all, with nearly $3 trillion, we fully rebuilt the American military — all made in the USA. We launched the first new branch of the United States Armed Forces in 75 years: the Space Force. And last spring, I stood at Kennedy Space Center in Florida and watched as American astronauts returned to space on American rockets for the first time in many, many years.



We revitalized our alliances and rallied the nations of the world to stand up to China like never before.



We obliterated the ISIS caliphate and ended the wretched life of its founder and leader, al Baghdadi. We stood up to the oppressive Iranian regime and killed the world’s top terrorist, Iranian butcher Qasem Soleimani.



We recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.



As a result of our bold diplomacy and principled realism, we achieved a series of historic peace deals in the Middle East. Nobody believed it could happen. The Abraham Accords opened the doors to a future of peace and harmony, not violence and bloodshed. It is the dawn of a new Middle East, and we are bringing our soldiers home.



I am especially proud to be the first President in decades who has started no new wars.



Above all, we have reasserted the sacred idea that, in America, the government answers to the people. Our guiding light, our North Star, our unwavering conviction has been that we are here to serve the noble everyday citizens of America. Our allegiance is not to the special interests, corporations, or global entities; it’s to our children, our citizens, and to our nation itself.



As President, my top priority, my constant concern, has always been the best interests of American workers and American families. I did not seek the easiest course; by far, it was actually the most difficult. I did not seek the path that would get the least criticism. I took on the tough battles, the hardest fights, the most difficult choices because that’s what you elected me to do. Your needs were my first and last unyielding focus.



This, I hope, will be our greatest legacy: Together, we put the American people back in charge of our country. We restored self-government. We restored the idea that in America no one is forgotten, because everyone matters and everyone has a voice. We fought for the principle that every citizen is entitled to equal dignity, equal treatment, and equal rights because we are all made equal by God. Everyone is entitled to be treated with respect, to have their voice heard, and to have their government listen. You are loyal to your country, and my administration was always loyal to you.



We worked to build a country in which every citizen could find a great job and support their wonderful families. We fought for the communities where every American could be safe and schools where every child could learn. We promoted a culture where our laws would be upheld, our heroes honored, our history preserved, and law-abiding citizens are never taken for granted. Americans should take tremendous satisfaction in all that we have achieved together. It’s incredible.



Now, as I leave the White House, I have been reflecting on the dangers that threaten the priceless inheritance we all share. As the world’s most powerful nation, America faces constant threats and challenges from abroad. But the greatest danger we face is a loss of confidence in ourselves, a loss of confidence in our national greatness. A nation is only as strong as its spirit. We are only as dynamic as our pride. We are only as vibrant as the faith that beats in the hearts of our people.



No nation can long thrive that loses faith in its own values, history, and heroes, for these are the very sources of our unity and our vitality.



What has always allowed America to prevail and triumph over the great challenges of the past has been an unyielding and unashamed conviction in the nobility of our country and its unique purpose in history. We must never lose this conviction. We must never forsake our belief in America.



The key to national greatness lies in sustaining and instilling our shared national identity. That means focusing on what we have in common: the heritage that we all share.



At the center of this heritage is also a robust belief in free expression, free speech, and open debate. Only if we forget who we are, and how we got here, could we ever allow political censorship and blacklisting to take place in America. It’s not even thinkable. Shutting down free and open debate violates our core values and most enduring traditions.
In America, we don’t insist on absolute conformity or enforce rigid orthodoxies and punitive speech codes. We just don’t do that. America is not a timid nation of tame souls who need to be sheltered and protected from those with whom we disagree. That’s not who we are. It will never be who we are.



For nearly 250 years, in the face of every challenge, Americans have always summoned our unmatched courage, confidence, and fierce independence. These are the miraculous traits that once led millions of everyday citizens to set out across a wild continent and carve out a new life in the great West. It was the same profound love of our God-given freedom that willed our soldiers into battle and our astronauts into space.



As I think back on the past four years, one image rises in my mind above all others. Whenever I traveled all along the motorcade route, there were thousands and thousands of people. They came out with their families so that they could stand as we passed, and proudly wave our great American flag. It never failed to deeply move me. I knew that they did not just come out to show their support of me; they came out to show me their support and love for our country.



This is a republic of proud citizens who are united by our common conviction that America is the greatest nation in all of history. We are, and must always be, a land of hope, of light, and of glory to all the world. This is the precious inheritance that we must safeguard at every single turn.



For the past four years, I have worked to do just that. From a great hall of Muslim leaders in Riyadh to a great square of Polish people in Warsaw; from the floor of the Korean Assembly to the podium at the United Nations General Assembly; and from the Forbidden City in Beijing to the shadow of Mount Rushmore, I fought for you, I fought for your family, I fought for our country. Above all, I fought for America and all it stands for — and that is safe, strong, proud, and free.



Now, as I prepare to hand power over to a new administration at noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we started is only just beginning. There’s never been anything like it. The belief that a nation must serve its citizens will not dwindle but instead only grow stronger by the day.



As long as the American people hold in their hearts deep and devoted love of country, then there is nothing that this nation cannot achieve. Our communities will flourish. Our people will be prosperous. Our traditions will be cherished. Our faith will be strong. And our future will be brighter than ever before.



I go from this majestic place with a loyal and joyful heart, an optimistic spirit, and a supreme confidence that for our country and for our children, the best is yet to come.



Thank you, and farewell. God bless you. God bless the United States of America.]]>

Young lady dies after allegedly being sexually harassed while twerking b*tt nak*d http://nairaplace.com//2874/young-lady-dies-after-allegedly-being-sexually-harassed-while-twerking-b-tt-nak-d.html


Ama Broni reportedly attended a carnival at Budumburam in the Gomoa East District where she met her untimely death. The carnival dubbed ‘Family Street Carnival’ took place on Saturday, 16th January 2021 at Budumburam in the Central Region.



At the carnival, a challenge was thrown to the crowd that whoever was able to twerk heavily would be given $100. Hoping to make some money, Ama took up the challenge and hit the stage to dance.



In videos shared online, the mother of two was seen dancing on stage butt naked as some guys tried touching her private part. This prompted her to bring her performance to a halt and she made way to the backstage after collecting the prize money.



According to some eyewitnesses, while making her way down the stage, the mother of two was electrocuted but did not help from those around her because they thought she was still being hyper. It wasn't until she fell down that they got to her and quickly rushed her to the hospital where she was confirmed dead.



Other eyewitnesses alleged that Ama died after she jumped and broke her neck while trying to escape from men that were assaulting her sexually during her dance performance.]]>

Retired Archbishop of Church of Uganda suspended over affair with a married woman http://nairaplace.com//2873/retired-archbishop-of-church-of-uganda-suspended-over-affair-with-a-married-woman.html


Ntagali, 65, was the 8th Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Uganda before handing over to Kazimba on March, 1, 2020 after clocking the retirement age.

According to a letter dated January 13, 2021 from the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda Most. Rev. Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu, the retired Archbishop Ntagali has been accused of involving in an extra-marital affair with a married woman and he (Ntagali) has acknowledged.



"This adultery is a grievous betrayal on many levels. Retired Archbishop Ntagali has betrayed his Lord and Saviour, his wife and their marriage vows, as well as the faith of many Ugandans and global Christians who looked up to him to live the faith he proclaimed,” the letter sent to the Anglican Bishops under the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) reads in part.



Kazimba added that the Church of Uganda has approximately 13 million members, all of whom have ‘sinned and fallen short of the glory of God,’ as the Bible reads in Romans 3:23 but the Church has to hold its leaders more accountable to the standards that they are called to uphold.



Kazimba said in the letter that he had informed Ntagali about the suspension and that Ntagali will not be allowed to perform any priestly duties such as preaching, function sacramental or represent the Church of Uganda in any way until further notice.



Kazimba also urged the Church of Uganda to send prayers to the spouses in both relationships, for repentance and healing to those who have committed adultery and for justice and forgiveness to flow.



"This is not a time for us to gossip. This is a time for repentance; a time for prayer; a time to examine our own sin and failings in humility; and a time to make all our relationships right before God,” Kazimba said.



Kazimba however added that the Church of Uganda will not shy away from their commitment to uphold the moral standards of marriage as a lifelong, exclusive union between one man and one woman while condemning adultery as immoral as homosexuality.



"No one is above God’s law. We call on all who have fallen shirt of this standard to go before the Lord in prayer and confess your sin, repent of your ways, and make restitution to those you have hurt,” Kazimba added.

80-year-old Tanzanian man dies during sex with his 33-year-old lover in hotel http://nairaplace.com//2871/80-year-old-tanzanian-man-dies-during-sex-with-his-33-year-old-lover-in-hotel.html


Mr Mluli reportedly collapsed and died suddenly on Saturday, January 16, while he was in room number 22 at Mbezi Garden Hotel in Dar es Salaam, where he had gone to relax in the company of his girlfriend identified as Neema Kibaya

Sources say the two had arrived shortly at the hotel with Mluli arriving first before his companion.

The Kinondoni Regional Police Commander, Mr Ramadhan Kingai, who confirmed the incident on Monday, January 18, told journalists that the police force received a phone call from Mbezi Garden Hotel manager Newton Mkonda on January 16 at around 3pm.



The caller informed the law enforcers of the sudden death of a client at the hotel who had occupied room number 22.



"The police arrived at the area and found Mr Mluli’s body along with a woman who identified herself as Neema Kibaya. Ms Kibaya told the police of the love relationship she had with the deceased,” said Kingai.



Police then took the body to Mwananyamala Hospital for postmortem while Ms Kibaya, a resident of Goba and a businesswoman, has been detained.



Preliminary investigations, he said, showed that Mr Mluli could have died from a normal death because his body shows no signs that there was any form of confrontation between him and any other person prior to the death.



"There were no direct physical signs that could have been noted as doubtful with exception of his under wears getting wet before he passed away,” said Mr Kingai.



While searching in the room, police found out that Mr Mluli was in possession of Sh37,000, his national identification card and Tecno mobile handset. Medical experts at the Mwananyamala Hospital will conduct a postmortem as soon as his relatives shown up.



"Postmortem protocols demand the presence of a relative of the deceased who has to identify the body before burial preparations." he added.]]>

Town elects goat and dog as mayor http://nairaplace.com//2870/town-elects-goat-and-dog-as-mayor.html


It is not the first time the town of Fair Haven has elected an animal as mayor.


First, a goat named Lincoln was elected mayor in 2018, and a dog named Murphee has since taken over the job.


“When I was talked into putting Murfee up to run, I thought, easy-peasy, we’ll get some T-shirts, we’ll go to the Spring Fling, we’ll sell some shirts and raise some money,” the Cavalier King Charles spaniel’s owner, Linda Barker, told the Rutland Herald.


“And then COVID struck and it was like ... there go all the easy plans,” she said, noting they’ve since begun selling face masks instead.


The town needed $100,000 to pay for the playground’s renovations. Fundraisers led by the goat and the dog made $30,000, and the town has put forward another $20,000 toward the project.



Now they have gotten most of their contributions due to their animal mayors, the town plans to start construction for the project in May.]]>

Adibe made the diclosure while speaking on We FM. Commenting on the current state of his client who was re-arrested in Niger Republic and extradited to Nigeria after jumping bail, Anayo alleged that he is in a very bad shape.



He further said that correctional centre's facility is not equipped enough to give Maina adequate medical attention.



The lawyer said;



“I visited him at the prison about a week ago and from the visit, he was not looking fine at all.

“I was told he had suffered a mild stroke, his blood pressure has been very high and his sugar level has risen astronomically. He is in a very bad shape.

“The resident doctor has written several letters to the authorities asking that he be taken to a better and well equipped medical facility. Those letters have not been responded to,” he said.

“As his lawyers, we have taken a step further. We have written the comptroller-general, informing him of the dire situation our client finds himself presently and that except he is afforded quick medical attention, the story might change very soon because the truth is that we fear for his life.”



Adibe also revealed that he has filed an application for his client to be granted bail on health grounds and it would be heard on January 20. ]]>

Biden won't support Buhari's government - Pat Utomi http://nairaplace.com//2866/biden-won-t-support-buhari-s-government-pat-utomi.html
Speaking in an interview with The PUNCH on Monday January 18, Utomi said former US President Barack Obama and his then-deputy Joe Biden, backed a regime change in Nigeria in 2015 but the change has not done the West African country any good.



The economist said;



“Obama was an extreme activist in seeking regime change in Nigeria because of the vast corruption and many of us supported the move but we later found out that the corruption did not change; Nigeria is more corrupt today than it was in the past.

“So, Biden will go back to a more liberal engagement with Nigeria but he is not going to be supportive of the incumbent (Buhari) the way Obama was because they can see that the incumbent fails to bring Nigeria together or move it forward, because they have now realised that Nigeria has become a more dangerous place to live"]]>

Kim has reportedly been meeting with divorce lawyer Laura Wasser in recent weeks, due to the alleged breakdown in counseling with a source disclosing to People of Kanye: 'He is talking to divorce lawyers this week.'



The estranged couple have been living seperatly as their relationship has become 'downright toxic' after months of therapy



A source recently told Us Weekly of their divorce: 'Kim and Kanye had no option but to live apart in the end because the communication between them had gotten so downright toxic.



'They went into the latter part of 2020 with the very best of intentions and wanted to find a way to get along when they spent time together.



'But it reached the point where the bickering turned to nasty blowups and confrontations, and since neither of them wanted the kids exposed to that type of hostility, they [stayed] apart.'



Another insider told Us Weekly: 'Kanye is jealous of the amount of time Kim has dedicated to prison reform and the kids.



'Kanye wanted the family to move to Wyoming full-time. It's where he sees this direction of his life going. Kim just doesn't see their lives full-time in Wyoming.'



Kim and Kanye married in Florence, Italy back in May of 2014, and they share daughters North, seven, Chicago, three, sons Saint, five, and Psalm, one.

The prosecutor, Patricia Gikunju, told the court that the girls were abused and one of them gave birth to a baby girl who is now seven months old.



During the sentencing, Senior Principal Magistrate Anthony Mwicigi said the pastor destroyed the lives of his daughters and that he deserves heavy punishment to serve as a lesson to other would-be offenders.



The magistrate described the convict as a very bad person whose name should be entered into the register of the convicted and most dangerous sex offenders.



“The accused abused his position as a father and ruined his daughters’ lives. It is a disgrace and taboo and the he deserves a long jail term,” Mr Mwicigi said.



Quoting the Bible, Mr. Mwicigi said the convict is a wicked man whose days are numbered.



“The fear of the Lord prolongs days but the years of the wicked shall be shortened,” he said.



In his defence, Gichini told the court that he was misled by the devil and sought forgiveness from his daughters and the court.



“The devil reigning on earth and making people to sin. I sinned, but I’m remorseful and I will be very happy if pardoned. It was my first time to commit such a crime in my life,” he told the magistrate.



The convict had been on the run since last December but was arrested in Mbeere South on Sunday and taken to Sagana police station.]]>

Didier Drogba separates from wife after 20 years together http://nairaplace.com//2839/didier-drogba-separates-from-wife-after-20-years-together.html


The footballer who has maintained a discreet private life as he tried to shield his loved ones from the limelight, made the announcement after appearing in an intimate video in bed with a mystery woman.



Drogba was forced to issue the statement after appearing bare-chested in bed with a nearly-naked young woman. In the video which a representative claimed had been hacked, the lady playfully sunk her teeth into Drogba's shoulder as he screamed in pain.



He then speaks to her in French about being bitten, and appeared to say;



“She's positive! She'll infect me by biting me!”



Confirming his split from Diakate thereafter, he wrote;



“I’m not in the habit of discussing my private life.

“But, because of speculation in the media today, I can confirm that sadly, after 20 years together, Lalla and I took the difficult decision to separate last year.

“We remain very close, and our main priorities have been to protect our children and our family’s private life.

“May God bless you.”]]>

7 killed and hundreds injured as earthquake rips through Indonesia http://nairaplace.com//2838/7-killed-and-hundreds-injured-as-earthquake-rips-through-indonesia.html

According to reports, more than a dozen patients and staff are reported to be trapped in the rubble of a hospital that was damaged in the quake.



Authorities said four people died in Majene and more than 600 were injured, while another three people died in neighbouring Mamuju.



Indonesia is prone to earthquakes because it lies on the so-called Ring of Fire - a line of frequent quakes and volcanic eruptions on the Pacific rim.

The earthquake which had magnitude of 6.2 came just hours after an earlier, smaller quake.



The epicentre of Friday's earthquake was six kilometres (3.73 miles) northeast of Majene city and had a depth of 10 kilometres.



Authorities have warned that strong aftershocks could follow the two main quakes and that they could still trigger a tsunami while thousands are reported to have left their homes, fleeing to safety.


Properties damaged include homes, two hotels, the governor's office and a mall.

North Korea unveils new submarine missile called "the world's most powerful weapon" http://nairaplace.com//2837/north-korea-unveils-new-submarine-missile-called-the-world-s-most-powerful-weapon-.html

Several of the missiles were displayed at a parade overseen by leader Kim Jong-un, on Thursday in Pyongyang and comes days before the inauguration of Joe Biden as US president, giving the new president fresh foreign policy challenges as Trump's diplomacy with North Korea failed to work.


"The world's most powerful weapon, submarine-launch ballistic missile, entered the square one after another, powerfully demonstrating the might of the revolutionary armed forces," the official Korean Central News Agency said.



The event on Thursday did not showcase North Korea's largest intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which was unveiled at a much larger military parade in October. That colossal weapon is believed to be able to deliver a nuclear warhead to anywhere in the US.


The weapon unveiling also comes after Kim called the US his country's "biggest enemy".


He said that the US was Pyongyang's "biggest obstacle for our revolution and our biggest enemy... no matter who is in power, the true nature of its policy against North Korea will never change".


Analysts noted it was a previously unseen weapon. "New year, new Pukguksong," tweeted North Korea expert Ankit Panda, using the North Korean name for their submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs).



Wearing a leather coat and fur hat, leader Kim is pictured smiling and waving as he watched the display in Pyongyang's Kim Il Sung Square, which also included infantry troops, artillery and tanks.

10 Categories Of Guys Who Are Members Of "The Stingy Guys Association Of Nigeria http://nairaplace.com//2829/10-categories-of-guys-who-are-members-of-the-stingy-guys-association-of-nigeria.html

1. Broke Guys

When a movement like this is birthed you should know that those that will carry it on their heads the most are usually the broke guys. Many guys are not only unhappy with the economy state of the country, they are also unhappy that it's becoming harder to find a life partner due to the materialistic nature of ladies of nowadays

Since the Stingy guys movement started, broke guys have been using it as an avenue to unleash mayhem and throw tantrums at both materialistic ladies and the innocent ones

2. Frustrated/Broken Heart Guys

Some guys have had horrible relationship experiences in the past and have given up on love. They've made up their minds that they're done with relationship and nothing can ever change their decision. Such guys have been at the forefront supporting the this movement passionately with their time and resources

3. Guys that have been Defrauded by Ladies

The movement has been an avenue for some guys to unleash their bottled up frustration probably because they've once invested so much in a lady thinking they would get sex in return but they ended up being outsmarted and defrauded and they felt like a loser. Such guys have been making sure that this movement trends on social media. Some of them already have ID cards and are already making for others

4. Stingy Guys

Some guys are so stingy that they consider it waste of money or resources to express their love with gifts. Since they do not like to give, they have been passionately supporting this moment and are making plans of how The Stingy Guys Association of Nigeria would be registered under CAC

5. Unemployed/Idle Guys

Since this movement is to encourage stingy and frown upon any guy spending money on ladies, the moment has been a celebration galore for guys who don't have any source of income to finance or manage a relationship, especially when it has to do with going on outing or helping their girlfriends in times of need

6.Single Guys

If you're a very observant like me (Tosyne2much) you must have observed that most of the guys who are part of this association are not in relationships. Sadly, most of them do not have girlfriends


7. Trolls

With the way The Stingy Men Association Nigeria is going, this could easily result in civil war because trolls seem to have hijacked this movement. You can see them on Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter heaping abusive words on women while the radical ones even go as far as raining curses on all women

8. Sex Starved Guys

Some sex guys have pledge their allegiance as members of the association to support the movement due to the fact that ladies are seriously countering men's stinginess with withheld vagina, telling them that masturbation is free and that sex doll is available and actually more safer and less expensive.

9. Those who support it for fun

Some guys don't even know the reason why they found themselves in the association. Not that their girlfriends are materialistic or they've once been defrauded, they just find themselves joining the crowd

10. Guys with entitlement mentality

I'm not the disputing the fact that some ladies are overly selfish, stingy, materialistic and liability in nature but the bitter truth is that some guys are not different. Some guys also carry entitlement mentality like some ladies and are ready to drain their partner financially. Such guys are members of this association

I drop my at this juncture

Feel free to add yours

I killed him in self defence - Corps member explains why she hacked man to death http://nairaplace.com//2828/i-killed-him-in-self-defence-corps-member-explains-why-she-hacked-man-to-death-.html


Upon being interrogated by the police after being arrested, the corps member who was nabbed while trying to jump over a fence after killing the young man identified as Japhet Akwaowo, reportedly said she did it in self-defence.



The police spokesperson in the state, Odiko Ogbeche-Macdon said Odume claimed Akwaowo threatened to kill her upon her refusal to oblige his request to remove her clothes so that he could have sex with her.



Macdon said;



"She actually killed the young man identified as Akwaowo Japhet. She said she went to buy bean cake, akara, and saw a man that beckoned to her to come over to him. She said she went to meet him, they got talking and she found herself in his house.

"She said she waited for him outside and he went inside to bring a knife. He said he was going to stab her and no one would know what happened. She also said Japhet asked her to remove her clothes and she refused. What basically happened was that she overpowered him."]]>

Muslim group asks Kukah to apologize to Muslims or leave Sokoto state http://nairaplace.com//2825/muslim-group-asks-kukah-to-apologize-to-muslims-or-leave-sokoto-state.html


The group which labelled itself as an umbrella body for Islamic organisations, scholars and clerics, asked the Christian cleric to apologise or leave the state following his 2020 Christmas Day message which according to them was an insult on Muslims and was capable of triggering religious violence in the country.



Kukah, in his Christmas homily, accused President Buhari of promoting northern hegemony, adding that there could have been a coup if a non-northern Muslim president had done a fraction of what the President has done since he assumed office in 2015.



At a press conference in Sokoto on Tuesday, January 12, the Acting Chairman of the Muslim forum, Sokoto chapter, Prof. Isa Muhammad Maishanu, said the message of the cleric was a direct attack on Islam. Maishanu said this is not the first time Kukah is attacking Islam and Muslims, especially those from the northern part of the country.



He faulted the message of Kukah in which he said if a fraction of the nepotism committed by Buhari, a Muslim and a Northerner, were committed by “any non-northern president, ” there would have been a coup in the country.” He said the statement was uncharitable and capable of causing violence.



Maishanu said that Kukah accusing Muslims of possessing a character of violence is provocative. He expressed concern that Kukah, who lives in the heart of Sokoto caliphate, can make such a statement because of his perceived 'hatred' for Islam and Muslims even when he calls himself apostle of peace.



“As part of his antics in February 2020, he shamelessly staged a demonstration in the heart of Sokoto over the killing of a single Christian priest in far away Adamawa State, presumably by the Boko Haram insurgency but did not consider hundreds of Muslim Fulani herders that were mercilessly killed by Christian militias in the neighbouring Taraba State,” Maishanu said



He stated that if Muslims in Sokoto responded to Kukah’s alleged incessant provocative attacks on them and their religion, peace could elude the country.



Maishanu said Kukah needs to apologise to Islam and Muslims for his alleged attacks on them or quietly vacate Sokoto state.

“These callous statements are becoming of someone who parades himself a secretary to the National Peace Committee and a member of Nigeria Inter-religious Council. As such, we call on Kukah to immediately stop his malicious vituperation against Islam and Muslims and tender unreserved apology to the Muslim Ummah or else quickly quietly leave the seat of Caliphate, as he is trying to break the age- long peaceful coexistence between the predominantly Muslim population and their Christian guests,” he said.
