IPOB Withdraws Threat To Stop Anambra Election

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) may have withdrawn its threat to stop the conduct of the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State.


The decision was reached after a meeting organised by a non-governmental organisation, the Ala-Igbo International Foundation with the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, in Owerri, the Imo State capital.

Leader of the foundation, Prof. Uzodinma Nwala, said after much deliberations which they claimed was still ongoing, the IPOB has assured the Igbo leaders that it won’t disrupt the November 18 governorship election.

People who are eligible to vote have also been told to go out and exercise their franchise without fear of molestation.

The Ala-Igbo Development Foundation is an Igbo group that brings together Igbo academics, elders, clerics, patriotic public figures, women and youth, both at home and abroad, with the main objective of protecting and ensuring the survival of Ndigbo, their culture and civilisation as well as the development of Igboland.

"I Do Cry When My Wife Leaves Me" - Nollywood Actor, Emeka Ike

Famous Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike is still finding it difficult to believe that he’s no longer married to his wife, Suzanne Emma.

emeka_ike_and_wife

The unexpected happened earlier this year, when his 14-year-old marriage to Emma was dissolved by a Lagos Island Customary Court over alleged incessant battery. Emma had on July 13, 2015, approached the court to dissolve the marriage, accusing her former husband of physically and verbally abusing her throughout the duration of their marriage.

But the star actor was not ready to let her go, as he pleaded with the court to reconcile them. Unfortunately, his plea yielded no results as the court finally dissolved their marriage on the grounds that it was beyond redemption.

Since then, Emeka Ike has never been the same again. According to him, the most painful part of his life was watching the mother of his four children walk out of their marriage despite his plea to reconcile with her which fell on deaf ears.

He shares his pains, his anguish and regrets, vowing, however, to unravel the circumstances that led to the crashing of the marriage. He also believes that his wife was used to blackmail him by those who want him dead.

Are you saying that you never raised your hands on your ex wife?

Have you watched that one movie, where the wife was saying “everything is alright between me and my husband. He takes care of me and provides all my needs”. That was the situation between my wife and I. If I didn’t know I would have blamed her sudden change of character on my enemies. I love her so much. Why would she blackmail me by claiming that I was always beating her up when I didn’t. To avoid the disturbing mess, I had to abandon my businesses and house in Lagos and find a new life in Abuja.

Can you welcome her back into your life if she returns to you?

Accepting her back is not the problem, but let her confess and get herself back. I believe she’s under the influence of something.

How did you feel watching her walk out of her marriage?
It’s the most painful part of my life. I cried for 24 hours every day for three to four years. I was just asking myself what is happening to me. You know, in blackmail, you will not know what is going on because somebody is playing the game. It was much later that I knew what was happening to me. I need to know the strength of these blackmailers because we have law in this country. And with the law, we will look at the issues pro-actively.

Meanwhile, when Vanguard contacted Emma , she said, “The marriage is over. I have moved on with my life. I am not willing to talk about it again. His actions have not shown that he’s remorseful.

"I’m Disappointed Klitschko Retired" -Anthony Joshua Says

Anthony Joshua has revealed the 'massive' sense of disappointment he felt when Wladimir Klitschko announced his retirement and ended their plans for a rematch in Las Vegas.

Anthony_joshua

The IBF and WBA heavyweight champion had been expected to defend his titles against Klitschko in a lucrative match-up at the T-Mobile Arena on November 11.

Klitschko's unexpected announcement, at the age of 41 following his stoppage defeat by Joshua at Wembley, surprised the boxing community as much as Joshua, particularly as he believes the Ukrainian had more to give.

Immediately after April's fight Klitschko insisted he could have finished Joshua after heavily dropping him in the sixth round and had made a mistake by remaining patient.

Klitschko was also widely praised for his resilience despite defeat, and when Joshua was asked of the disappointment he felt when he was told the news about his rival's retirement, he said;
  • 'Massive. It was probably even a disappointment for his management, his trainer

    (Floyd) Mayweather's the same age as Klitschko (the American is actually 40), Mayweather's still going strong; Klitschko still had a good fight in him (in April's defeat) and I'm sure he's still got a couple of other good fights in him.

    In my heart of hearts I kind of knew he probably wouldn't fight again. He was saying how obsessed he was with becoming heavyweight champion of the world again.

    If you fail at the first hurdle, you go again; you knew from my side I was ready for a rematch, making it clear that if he wants to go again, we'll go again.

    With Klitschko, we weren't hearing too much, so I just thought he was 50-50, but I had a feeling he might not fight again.
    'I, and many other people, wanted to see him compete, but he felt it was best for him to leave the game, hang up his gloves, and I respect the man's decision.'

Fish Seller Got Shot To Death During Clash Between Cultists In Ogun

Tragedy struck in the Ogiro, Agbado area of Ogun State, after a fish seller, Farouk Adebowale, was shot dead by some gunmen suspected to be cult members.


Research made it clear that Adebowale was hit by a stray bullet in the head while some cult members wanted to gun down a man who wanted to date their leader’s girlfriend.

Punch correspondent gathered that the alleged girlfriend, Yetunde Kamoru, and the suspected cult leader, Ganiyu Azeez, had gone for a party in a hotel in the Oyero area last Tuesday.

During the party, the unidentified man was alleged to have seduced Kamoru, which angered the boyfriend, Azeez. There was an argument between the men, which led to a fight.

Azeez and his friends were reported to have chased the lover boy to the Ogiro community, as the latter, who was also said to be a cult member, mobilised his gang.

The two groups allegedly exchanged gunfire which created tension in the community.

In the ensuing confusion, the victim, who was by the roadside with his goods, was hit by a bullet in the head.

He was said to have slumped and died on the spot.

A source said Azeez was later caught in a hotel with another girlfriend.

He said, “The main suspect, Azeez, went to a party with his girlfriend. On getting there, there was a brawl. He said a man was eyeing his girlfriend during a dance and that led to a fight. Azeez and his gang wanted to injure the man, but he fled.

“They trailed him outside and that led to a shootout between the two men and their gang members. Azeez’s cult members had wanted to shoot the lover boy, when the bullet hit the fish seller and he died.

“After the incident, residents said they knew the girl responsible for the fight. They reported to the police at the Agbado division and went to pick her at her house. She admitted to knowing about the fight and led the police to the boyfriend’s house.
“When they didn’t find him at home, she led them to a hotel where they found him in a room with another girl, called Yetunde. The two girls and the man were arrested and taken to the Agbado Police Station.”

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the death, adding that three suspects had been arrested.

He said the police had earlier received information that two rival cult groups, Eye and Eiye, planned to create mayhem in the area as part of their celebration of ‘8/8’.

He said, “On August 7, the police got information that some Aiye and Eiye cult members planned to attack the Oyero community to celebrate ‘8/8’, which was August 8.

“The Divisional Police Officer mobilised his men and started intense patrol of the area. It was while on patrol that he heard that some cult members had struck and fired somebody around the Transformer area of Ogiro.

“The DPO deployed some of his men in the area and two of the suspects were immediately arrested. When the DPO himself got there, the leader of the cult members was arrested.

Immediately he was sighted at the station, residents identified him. The suspects are Ganiyu Azeez, Yetunde Kamoru and Morufat Arojojoye.

“The state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has directed that they should be transferred to the Anti-kidnapping and Anti-cultism Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Eleweran, for further investigation. The suspects are cooperating in the investigation and giving vital information on the incident.”

"The Person Responsible For President Buhari's Hospital Bill In Not Reveal To Me" - Femi Adesina

The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said that he has no idea who foots the medical bill of the president. Mr. Adesina said this when he appeared on a Channels Television talk show, Politics Today.

Femi_adesina

Mr. Buhari has been away on medical vacation since May 7. He has been in the United Kingdom for treatment of an undisclosed ailment.

During the interview, Mr. Adesina said details of how payments for Mr. Buhari’s hospital bills are effected do not matter. “Does it matter at this point?” he said in response to a question posed by the programme presenter.

“We need to know, he is our president. He is a public official. This shouldn’t be shrouded in secrecy,” the presenter, Seun Okinbaloye, replied him. “I do not know who is paying,” Mr. Adesina said, “but as a president, he has a right to be treated by the country.”

When asked specifically whether Nigeria is taking care of the bill, he said: “Most likely. I don’t not know for sure.”

Mr. Adesina, who was a part of the delegation that met Mr. Buhari during the weekend, explained that the president was “sharp, he was smart, he was lucid.”

“But like I said in the statement we issued, he will come when his doctors say ‘it’s time to go home’,” he argued.

Angry Mob Sets Man Ablaze For Stealing Mobile Phone In Lagos (See Photos)

Angry mob, last week roasted a yet to be identified middle-aged man for allegedly stealing a phone estimated at N45,000 in Mushin area of Lagos.


The deceased, said to be a lone robbery suspect, reportedly entered an apartment at 19 Olorunshogu Street, Mushin, where he took the phone and sneaked out at about 6.30pm.

A female tenant said to have seen him with a Samsung Galaxy phone, raised the alarm which alerted residents in the area.

Eye witnesses revealed that the suspect initially denied the allegation, stating that he only missed his way.

He later admitted, blaming hunger for the act.

His passionate plea for forgiveness fell on deaf ears as he was beaten to pulp and set ablaze before the arrival of policemen from Area ‘ D’ command.

Spokesman for the Lagos State Police command, Olarinde Famous-Cole, who confirmed the incident, said that one person had been arrested in connection with the mob action.

Olarinde gave the identity of the arrested suspect as Isiaka Kolawole, adding that he was being interrogated at the Homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, SCIID, Yaba.

He said;
  • “Preliminary investigation revealed that the deceased was accused of stealing a galaxy phone from a house, in Mushin. An angry mob lynched him.”

"Past Government Are To Be Blamed For Nigeria's Economy Problem" - Muhammadu Buhari

Nigeria President, Muhammadu Buhari has accused his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan of destroying the country’s economy.
Hide quoted text

Muhammadu_buhari

This was contained in a statement signed by his media aide, Garba Shehu which reads;
  • With due respects to the former President Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, these are the facts about the economy you left behind, in case you have forgotten.

    I hope this will help to erase the wrong statement credited to you at your party, the PDP Convention at the Eagle Square last weekend that you handed to President Buhari a robustly healthy economy.

    To the same extent, this should also help to erase yet another false statement by Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi, the Caretaker Chairman of the party, to the effect that under the previous administration there was money but now things are very hard.

    Let me start by reasserting an obvious statement, which is that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration was handed an economy ravaged by years of mismanagement and corruption.

    It is understandable that Dr Jonathan kept his comments short because a cursory look at any sector clearly indicated that he and his Government presided over the most monumental and tragic economic mismanagement recorded in our national history.

    The oil sector boomed under his tenure, with oil prices as high as US$ 120 and peace in the Nigeria Delta. Nigeria earned unprecedented dollar revenues. Sadly, that is where the story turns sour. There is nothing to show for the revenues earned, no major capital project was completed, neither power generation, road development, rail or agriculture benefitted from the windfall earnings. Rather the administration presided over the diversion of oil revenues on a such a massive scale, that even without the protection now accorded to Whistle blowers, the then Central Bank Governor blew not only a whistle but a trumpet. He was hurriedly shown the door.

    Meanwhile, the acquisition by public officers and their cohorts of private jets, luxury yachts and the accumulation of expensive property portfolios worldwide continued unabated. Indeed, the President once celebrated having the largest number of private jets, whilst our youth languished without jobs, our fields stood idle and our factories began the lay off of workers.

    The government simply reticulated oil revenue through personal spending by corrupt leaders, wasteful expenses and salaries. This was done rather than investing in what would grow the economy. Economies grow due to capital investment in assets like seaports, airports, power plants, railways, roads and housing. Nigeria can not record a single major infrastructural project in the last 10 years. In short, the money was mismanaged.

    Such was the looting that even the goose that was laying the golden egg was being systematically starved. The direct contractual costs of oil produced, in the form of cash calls, remained unpaid. The incoming, President Buhari’s welcome from the oil majors included demand for US$6Bn owed by Nigeria for oil that had already been sold or stolen.

    At the inception of the current administration, 21 States were unable to meet their salary bills and the spectre of workers arrears had commenced. The PDP solution was the raid the Ecological Fund and selectively grant N2bn each to the PDP States. It was only aggressive borrowing by the Ministry of Finance under Dr Okonjo- Iweala that prevented Federal Government from also owing salaries. The economic wisdom of borrowing to pay recurrent bills is a questionable one, particularly as those paid would have included over 45,000 that have subsequently been removed by the Buhari led administration as ghost workers. It also included the lavish costs of chartering private jets, first class travel and other wasteful acts that have been eliminated under this administration.

    To compound the problem the government was borrowing heavily and owed contractors, and international oil companies. When this government took over we had accumulated debt back to the level it was before the Paris Club Debt Forgiveness.

    All these factors were building up to Nigeria heading for a major crisis if the price of oil fell. Nigeria did not have fiscal buffers to withstand an oil shock.

    The oil shock should and could have been foreseen. When Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, ISIS crisis started, it was clear that the United States of America wanted to cut off funds to terror groups by crashing the price of oil. When America granted permission for exploration of oil on land ( Shale) the warning signs were evident, but these were ignored by Nigeria’s economic managers.

    Such was the looting that even the goose that was laying the golden egg was being systematically starved. The direct contractual costs of oil produced, in the form of cash calls, remained unpaid. The incoming President Buhari’s welcome from the oil majors included demand for US$6Bn owed by Nigeria for oil that had already been sold or stolen.

    At the inception of the Buhari administration, 21 States were unable to meet their salary bills and the specter of workers arrears had commenced. The PDP solution was to raid the Ecological Fund and selectively grant N2Bn each to the PDP States. It was only aggressive borrowing by the Ministry of Finance that prevented Federal Government from also owing salaries. The economic wisdom of borrowing to pay recurrent bills is a questionable one, particularly as those paid would have included over 45,000 that have subsequently been removed by the Buhari led administration as ghost workers. It also included the lavish costs of chartering private jets, first class travel and other wasteful acts that have been eliminated under this administration.

    In summary, Nigeria earned a lot of money when oil prices were high but there is nothing to show for it. Now oil prices have fallen we are suffering.

    What could they have done differently?

    They could have begun doing the very things that the Muhammadu Buhari administration is doing so painfully now:

    1. Fight corruption.

    2. Sanitize the huge salary bill by eliminating payroll fraud.

    3. Reduce wasteful expenses like First Class Travel and Private jets.

    4. Encourage State Governments to reform their spending and build savings or investments.

    5. Increase spending on capital projects especially on infrastructure needed to make Nigerian businesses competitive and create jobs.

    6. Block the leakages that allowed government revenues to be siphoned into private hands.

    7. Focus on key sectors ( apart from oil) that can create jobs and or generate revenue such as Agriculture, Solid Minerals, and Manufacturing.

    If these things had been done when the oil price was as high as US$120 per barrel, Nigeria would not be in the current predicament.

    We would not be suffering now if we had no cash reserves but we had power, or a rail system, or good roads, or good housing. But we don’t have money and we don’t have the projects either.

    Now that the oil has fallen below those levels, it is very difficult to do what is needed but they must be done to save Nigeria. There is no other way if we want to be honest.

    If PDP were still in power they would have continued deceiving people, by borrowing to fund stealing and wastage and the problem would have simply been postponed for future generations to face.

    One of former President Jonathon’s specific boasts is that dollar under him was N180 compared to today. With such a line of argument, it is clear why we are where we are. With oil prices as high as $120 the average inflow of dollars each month was high, making it easy to support cheap dollars. However, with oil price plummeting as low as $28, the fundamental laws of supply and demand dictated that the currency would need to adjust since oil was the sole export. It is instructive to note that virtually every major oil exporter has witnessed currency adjustments with the fall in oil price.

    The Buhari administration has taken a long term strategic view of supporting a stable naira on both the supply and demand sides. President Buhari has driven Import substitution to reduce demand for dollars to buy things we can produce thereby creating thousands of rural jobs in rice and other staples. In addition, there is a credible plan to diversify our revenue sources away from oil, with a focus on export crops as well as solid minerals, with the release of US$100M fund to develop solid mineral extraction.

    President Muhammdu Buhari has a positive and prosperous vision for Nigeria. A nation in which the natural talent and hard work of the people is being supported by an enabling environment for infrastructural development and policy reforms that will develop a firm future for our nation. Nigerians are looking forward and the PDP’s lurking in the economic rear view mirror only underscores the resolve of Nigerians, that as far as the economy is concerned it is “never again.”

"No Attack Was Made To The Assemblies of God Church" - Government Says

The senior special assistant to Governor Obiano on social media, Mr Ifeanyi Aniagoh, has said that the alleged Assemblies of God church attack in Onitsha is nothing but an incomplete report.

the_assemblies_of_God_church

He said that nothing like such happened except an attack on policemen on Oguta road in Onitsha.

He said;
  • “No church attack in Onitsha, please ignore the rumour! The Onitsha incidence has nothing to do with church attack as confirmed by the Anambra Police Public Relations Officer, Princess Nkiru Nwode.

    She said the attack was on policemen who were on foot patrol along Oguta Road Onitsha.

    According to her, the attackers were hoodlums who disguised themselves as masquerades to dispossess innocent citizens of their belongings and in the process killed a police man and injured some others.

    Recall that in an effort to ensure safer society, the government of Anambra State recently launched Motorbike Brigade in addition to several other Security Units that maintain regular patrol of our communities.

    May the soul of deceased officer who died in active duty find eternal peace.”

Some Effective Ways To Avoid Payment of Flight Rescheduling Fees

You booked a flight for a getaway or business trip, but now you have an emergency that you have to attend to and you have no choice than to reschedule your flight. And for quite a number of airline, you need to pay rescheduling fees.


Below are some ways to avoid paying flight rescheduling fees.

1). Monitor for schedule changes
Due to issues beyond the airline's control, they may cancel or reschedule your flight. This will definitely work in your favour. This plays out for travellers who bought their ticket directly from the airline. With this, you do not need to reschedule your flight. Just ensure you monitor for schedule changes.

2). Purchase another ticket
Rescheduling fees can be so high that sometimes it does not worth paying for it. So, if the charge for rescheduling is more than your ticket, simply buy a new one.

3). Reschedule as early as possible
Time is money. The sooner you reschedule your flight, the less likely you will pay a rescheduling fee.

4). Call rather than going online
The internet has made it easier to report grievances and complaints. Anyone can just go on twitter to request information about the procedure for rescheduling flight. But some situations require human intervention. So, rather than going online, just call them and get all the info you need. They may even reschedule your flight for free as a promo.

5). Read rescheduling policies before booking. We are all guilty of this. We do not read the terms and conditions for booking or buying anything. Consequently, when there is a problem, you will not get the desired response because it is not covered by the terms and conditions. Henceforth, make it a habit to read the policies for booking flights. This will help you fathom the rescheduling procedure for any airline.

"Stop Killing Vultures" - NCF Warns

The National Conservation Foundation has warned against the trafficking and illegal killing of vultures in the country and called on security operatives and herb sellers to support the foundation in its efforts to stop the acts.

The Conservation Manager, Technical Programme of the NCF, Mr. Adedayo Mahmud, gave the warning in Osogbo on Friday at a workshop organised by the NCF for policemen, officers of the Nigerian Customs Service and herb sellers popularly known as elewe omo.

Mahmud said vultures played a very important role in the ecosystem, including the prevention of outbreak of diseases and sicknesses through their activities.

He said vultures also assist law enforcement agencies by flying over the area where poachers just killed wildlife animals, lamenting that poachers usually poisoned the birds in order to avoid being given away by their activities.

Mahmud said, “Vultures are being killed in large number despite their importance to the ecosystem. Vulture population has declined drastically but it is estimated that a single vulture provides a scavenging benefit of $11,600 per year.

“Vultures are also used in traditional medicine. The feathers and the heads are used for ritualistic purposes and they are exported to other countries. That is why we are seeking the support of the elewe omo and also security agencies to stop this.”

He advocated legislation to arrest and prosecute wildlife traffickers and other offenders including those fond of wildlife poisoning.

A renegade leader of Somalia's al-Shabab has defected to the regional government, severing ties to the armed group that has been carrying out attacks in the country, according to a Somali military official.

Mukhtar Robow has been airlifted to Mogadishu, after surrendering earlier on Sunday to Somali forces in the government-controlled town of Hudur in the country's southwest.

Ahmed Mohamed, a senior government security official, earlier said Robow was taken from the Bakool jungle area, where he and hundreds of his fighters had been battling al-Shabab since early last week.

Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow, who had interviewed Robow, said the defection is significant as he is one of the founding leaders of al-Shabab, and is the only one living today.

Earlier this week, Robow lost at least 19 of his fighters to al-Shabab.
Robow's defection comes after the US in June cancelled a $5m reward offered for his capture.

His surrender is culmination of months of talks between the Somali government, and it is believed the cancellation of the bounty for his capture helped convince Robow to turn himself in.

Robow, who was the deputy director of al-Shabab, is the most senior figure to have quit the group since its founding in 2001.
