Troops kill Boko Haram terrorist, avert deadly IED Attack

Authorities of Operation Lafiya Dole have said that troops in a blocking operation to canalize and deny Boko Haram terrorists freedom of action and escape from ongoing onslaught in the Sambisa region have killed one Boko Haram insurgent at Ngala Bridge at Gamboru Ngala area of Borno State. Members of the Nigerian Armed Forces Sniper Unit stand in their ghillie suits at the African Land Forces Summit (ALFS) military demonstration held at General Ao Azazi barracks in Gwagwalada on April 17, 2018. The African Land Forces Summit (ALFS) is a weeklong seminar held in Nigeria, bringing together land forces from across Africa to discuss and develop cooperative solutions and improve transregional security and stability.

A statement by Col Onyeama Nwachukwu, Deputy Director, Army Public Relations said, “The troops on Thursday killed the terrorist and wounded several others at about 6.30pm in an encounter with elements of the terrorists group who were fleeing in two gun trucks through Gamboru Ngala road.

He said, “The gallant troops engaged the terrorists, destroying one of the gun trucks and recovering an anti-aircraft gun, 2 AK 47 rifles and 2 magazines abandoned by the fleeing terrorists under the superior fire power of the troops. “In another operation, troops on patrol along Jebra-Figi road at about 1.30pm on Thursday, averted a devastating plot by Boko Haram terrorists to attack troops and other unsuspecting road users with multiple improvised explosive devices concealed under foliage along the road. “The troops uncovered 3 primed IEDs concealed under shrubs along the road shoulder and connected to a long detonating cable dragged into the bush towards the Sambisa forest axis. “The IEDs have been safely detonated by Operation Lafiya dole Explosive Ordinance disposal team. “Vigilant troops have also arrested one Madaki Tumba aka Kalifa, a suspected Boko haram terrorist at a location ahead of Limankara. The suspect was nabbed on Thursday at about 6.14pm by troops on patrol while in possession of one M16 rifle and a magazine loaded with 2 rounds of 5.56mm ammunition. “He is currently undergoing preliminary investigation. “The ongoing operation against Boko Haram terrorists conducted by troops of operation Lafiya Dole simultaneously in the Sambisa region and the Lake chad Islands is undoubtedly strangulating the insurgent group, hence its resort to attacking soft targets with suicide bombers and other forms of IEDS in a desperate bid to remain relevant. “Members of the public are therefore please urged to be cautious and vigilant as they go about their daily activities in their communities and business places. “They are also enjoined to promptly report any suspicious persons or activities to security agencies.”

A football team is like a beautiful woman, Arsene Wenger quotes

AFP Sport picks out ten Arsene Wenger quotes after the 68-year-old Frenchman announced he would be stepping down at the end of the season after almost 22 years in charge:

On the ‘Invincibles’ “To remain unbeaten in a championship like the English championship now is really unbelievable. I want to win the Champions League but, really, this is more important. It is something amazing, something special. How can you do it?”

— A justifiably proud Wenger after his ‘Invincibles’, including French stars Thierry Henry and Robert Pires, went through the 2003/04 Premier League season unbeaten, only the second side after Preston North End in 1888/89 to achieve that feat. – On the British diet “What’s really dreadful is the diet in Britain. The whole day you drink tea with milk and coffee with milk and cakes. If you had a fantasy world of what you shouldn’t eat in sport, it’s what you eat here.” — Wenger, used to the healthier diet of Japan, where he coached before taking over at Arsenal, lashes out at British dietary habits. – On Mourinho’s ‘voyeur’ jibe “He’s out of order, disconnected with reality and disrespectful. When you give success to stupid people, it makes them more stupid sometimes and not more intelligent.” — Wenger has had fiery relationships with Jose Mourinho and Alex Ferguson, eschewing the tradition of having a drink with his opposite number after the match. Here he reacts furiously to Mourinho remarking in 2005 that Wenger was a “voyeur” for constantly talking about Chelsea. – On women “A football team is like a beautiful woman. When you do not tell her, she forgets she is beautiful.” — Renowned for his team’s attractive style of play, Wenger draws a parallel between his side and beautiful women. – On being a scapegoat “I’m ready to take the blame for all the problems of English football if that is what he wants.” — Wenger sarcastically hits back at Alex Ferguson’s criticism in 2007 that Arsenal had few home grown players. – On his holistic approach “We try to go a different way that, for me, is respectable. Briefly, these are the basics. I thought: We are building a stadium, so I will get young players in early so I do not find myself exposed on the transfer market without the money to compete with the others. I build a team, and we compensate by creating a style of play, by creating a culture at the club because the boy comes in at 16 or 17 and when they go out they have a supplement of soul, of love for the club, because they have been educated together. The people you meet at college from 16 to 20, often those are the relationships in life that keep going. That, I think, will give us strength that other clubs will not have.” — Wenger reveals his team-building philosophy in 2006, reluctant to splash the cash like rival clubs as the Gunners invested in the construction of the Emirates. – On ‘parking the bus’ “I don’t know what you mean by parking the bus. I don’t know who created this expression but it has not a lot to do with football.” — Wenger rejects out of hand any suggestion he would ever revert to a defensive strategy. – On Nicolas Anelka “No matter how much money you earn, you can only eat three meals a day and sleep in one bed.” — Wenger on turbulent striker Nicolas Anelka, who engineered a big-money move to Real Madrid aged just 20. Anelka was to stay just one season in Spain and later said he wished he had remained at the Gunners. – On Mourinho, again “It is fear to fail.” — Wenger’s verdict on Mourinho’s unwillingness to talk up Chelsea’s title chances in February 2014. – On his gardener “I said ‘Good afternoon’ and he replied, ‘I’m your gardener at your house’. I didn’t even know him. I do have a big garden.” — Wenger talking about an incident last season when he was serving a touchline ban and ended up sitting beside his gardener at Stamford .

Oby Ezekwesili Reacts To Femi Adesina’s Statement On Buhari Calling Youths Lazy

Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has reacted to Femi Adesina’s statement where he said President Buhari never described all Nigerian youths as lazy.

According to Adesina, President Buhari said a lot of Nigerian youths are lazy and not all youths.

Ezekwesili’s in reaction wrote on twitter:

“ .@FemAdesina says the President only said, “a lot of.” “Not all.” A lot of, Plenty o. A lot of, means Majority o. Hmmm. I pray for YOU. May God never let you specialize in what my Dad used to describe as Semantic Obscurantism.

Would have made sense to sincerely apologize on this legendary misspeak of our President .@MBuhari than to rush out with these acrobatics of “A Lot Of is Not Equal to All”. When shall his media team learn? Been almost four years. I mean, FOUR YEARS. Haba.

How many employment opportunities have you created – Yoruba youths attack Buhari over ‘lazy comment’

The Yoruba Youth Socio-cultural Association (YYSA) has taken a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari following his remark in London that Nigerian youths are lazy.

The youths who said contrary to what Buhari said, Nigerian youth are hardworking and industrious however declared that the President is totally out of point for making such remark

National Secretary of YYSA, Comrade Olawale Ajao in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Friday in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital while reacting to Buhari’s outburst lamented that it is unfortunate that, “President Buhari is fond of giving a negative remark about Nigeria whenever he talks abroad.”

Ajao said, “Hardly is there any country which youths are as hardworking as Nigeria in the whole world.”

According to him, “It is on record that, in 2014, when the Nigerian Immigrations announced mass vacancy, 6.5 million people in all 37 states of Nigeria (including the FCT) stormed various recruitment centres in the country for the 4000 vacant positions in the Nigeria Immigration Service. At least 16 job seekers were confirmed dead, and several scores of people were injured.

The major causes of death was due to overcrowding and stampede of the applicants. Was President Buhari unaware of this?”.

Ajao added that, “Millions of Nigerian youths invest heavily in education after which they are thrown into an oversaturated job market. Due to the fierce competition, ineffective labour laws and other socio-economic problems, graduates are either underemployed or face the risk of working more for less pay.”

To show the willingness of our youth to work, many ladies are despirate to the extent of offering themselves for adultery just because there are tired of being idle, just as majority of applicants compromise certain percentage of their salaries to the facilitators of the job”, he argued”.

Ajao said there are countless number of graduates trading in the market, driving commercial vehicles in towns and doing all sorts of menial jobs for survival.

He concluded tha, “We (YYSA) want Mr President to tell us how many employment opportunities his government has provided and how many Nigerians have turned down the job offers

“I Just Had Sex With Wizkid” – Flow, London Based Nigerian Lady Says On Twitter

A London based Nigerian lady identified as flow has taken to twitter to make a shocking revelation about Nigerian pop star, Wizkid. And according to the lady, she claimed she just had sex with the singer.

In a very blunt post she made on twitter, flow wrote

‘I judt f-ked @wizkidayo’

It is not really certain if she did that just to gather attention and trend on the social media platform, but the lady seemed to stand by her statement as she has not made any attempt to delete the post despite so much bashing from her followers on twitter.

While some people demanded for proof, others welcomed her into the league of Wizkid’s baby mamas.

See screenshot below;

Reactions trailed her post with some people asking if she’s joining the growing list of Wizkid’s babymamas.

@King_Ickie said; Happy for you sis, I’m sure all your life aspirations and dreams have come true with this one action, oh should we be expecting you to join the list of baby mama’s?

Some claimed she masturbated

@YourDayOneGuy said

“You can now go take a bath and change your bedspread.ladies Its 2018 embrace your sexuality if you masturbate with a guy in mind let us know like she has done.”

Others wondered why she decided to announce it publicly…

@Brice_tambe said “Wow….u just disrespected that pussy of urs in public! I guess u think that’s an achievement yeah?smh!”

@Zinniex said:

“Won da ba .. Congratulations girl, you can now proceed to update your resume to baby mama no 4. Hope you didn’t forget to record the sound of the fuckery for your ringtone, onuku madu .”

Wizkid is an artiste, who has openly confessed his love for women and so this is not going to be a surprise if it actually happened. In an interview he had recently, he mentioned that it will be quite hard for him to marry a single woman if at all he is going to get married.

Buhari Chickens-Out Against IPOB Protest, Rented Supporters To Counter IPOB In London

The feud between Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and the Biafran Apex group The indigenous people of Biafra seems endless.

Buhari while trying to protect the unity of Nigeria have apparently subjected the people of Biafra into unlawful killings and Arrests hence IPOB staged a peaceful protest in Westminster London yesterday in other  to draw the attention of the world on the ongoing injustice perpetuated on Biafran Agitators by Nigerian Armed Forces.

As anticipated, Buhari rented crowds to cheer ,herald and to promote Nigeria in London so that World Leaders may feel that all is well in Nigeria, whereas Nigeria is far from been well and prosperous amidst Insecurity, Unlawful Arrests of Biafran members , state sponsors killings, among other multifarious challenges facing the drowning Nation of Nigeria.

IPOB demonstration have a clear cut out; To ask Nigeria government to produce Nnamdi Kanu, conduct Biafra Referendum, To stop Nigeria government from the incessant killings of Biafran… Whilst the rented crowds in solidarity with Buhari have no clear cut, lacks vision and purpose.

2019 Election; Christian Group Set To Hold 30 Days Fasting To Stop Buhari

A group of Christian Leaders under the auspices of United Christian Leaders Eagle Eyes Forum (UCLEEF), has declared a 30 day prayer and fasting to stop President Muhammadu Buhari from winning the 2019 Presidential election and sending him into what they described as forceful retirement.

The Christian group who presented a copy of the Holy Bible to President Buhari during the count down to the 2015 Presidential election asked Nigerians irrespective of religious, ethnic and political inclinations to “awake and save our dear nation” as it is the citizenry that have the power, right and choice to make the country great again.

Addressing a news conference in Abuja on Thursday, Chairman of the Forum. Pastor Aminchi Habu said there was every indications that if President Buhari is re-elected in 2019, the country will continue to slide backward, asking Nigerians to expect more failures from the president.

According to him, what the country needs to end the high level of social decadence and lack of development in the country was to elect a leader with a vision and the mindset to make the nation great

He said: “The president knows that he has nothing you offer this country. So, he should just maintain his integrity by keeping to his word of doing only one term.

“He failed already and will surely fail again because nothing will change. It will still be the same group of people. Just because engine oil makes a car run smoothly doesn’t mean it can revive an engine that knocks.

“The president is not a leader anymore but has turned to a ruler. A leader put his people first while a ruler only thinks about himself. Right now Mr President is not thinking about the masses but himself only. He just wants to remain in power and not you serve thus country because he cannot.

“We cannot continue like this and that is why we are urging Nigerians to vote massively against him and retire him forcefully. He has nothing to offer again. Mr President is known for blaming others for his failures. He blames the PDP girl the economic problems in the country and now he is blaming late Gaddafi for the insecurity problems in the country,” he quipped.

Pastor Aminchi noted that 30-day prayers and fasting had commenced by both Christian and Muslim faithfuls for a true leader to emerge out of the many aspirants, stressing: “I indulge each and every citizen of this country to awake and save our dear nation. We all have the power, the right and the choice to make the right and wise decision so that Nigeria will be great again.

“What Nigeria needs is a leader with vision and a mindset to make this nation great. Nigeria needs a leader not a ruler. Someone who is bold enough to see failure and turn it to success not someone who will see failure and blame others for it.

“That is why we as a Christian forum with some of our Muslim brothers with like mindset have entered into prayers and fasting that before we reach the middle of the year, that is June, a true leader will emerge out of the many aspirants”.

He said further that “the APC are claiming that PDP failed and is the cause of all the failure in this present government. Well how can the government perform effectively when all those that are suppose to help it work better are among those that make the previous government failed. It’s like buying a new car and instead of using a new engine oil you decided to use the condemned one from your old car, you cannot blame the car if it develop fault.

“And now we hear the president blaming Gaddafi for all the killings happening in the country, well it’s not surprising because the president is known for blaming others for his failure. He blames PDP for the economic problems in the country and now he is blaming Gaddafi a dead man for the insecurity problems.

“Next he will blame car manufacturers for all the accidents happening in our roads due to how bad the roads are, or even blame Text books authors for the failure In our academic system, or blame Kanji dam for the electricity problem.

“Even if those people are from outside the country it is still the fault of the president as the commander in chief of the armed forces of Nigeria. He closed those places that are supposed to be open like the border of Cotonou and live so many loop holes for infiltration. It is just as a man having a house, you didn’t fenced it and decided not to close your doors and windows at night without any security.

“You can’t blame anybody if armed robbers enter and create havoc in your house and of cause no one will pity you cause you brought it upon yourself due to your carelessness and negligence. Since the president don’t know how to protect the country, he should not blame anyone for his inability to keep his children safe as the father of the nation.

Arsène Wenger To Leave Arsenal At The End Of The Season

Arsène Wenger will leave Arsenal at the end of the season, bringing to an end a trophy-laden but also increasingly fractious 22-year association between the Frenchman and the club.

Arsenal made the surprise announcement on Friday morning and after Wenger had informed the squad of his decision during training ahead of their home match against West Ham on Sunday. Wenger signed a fresh two-year contract extension last summer and while there was speculation the 68-year-old would leave halfway though that deal, few thought confirmation of that would arrive before the conclusion of the current campaign, especially with a Europa League semi-final against Atlético Madrid to come.

“After careful consideration and following discussions with the club, I feel it is the right time for me to step down at the end of the season,” said Wenger in a statement posted on Arsenal’s website. “I am grateful for having had the privilege to serve the club for so many memorable years.

“I managed the club with full commitment and integrity. I want to thank the staff, the players, the Directors and the fans who make this club so special. I urge our fans to stand behind the team to finish on a high. To all the Arsenal lovers take care of the values of the club. My love and support for ever.”

Wenger was a relative unknown in this country when he was appointed Arsenal’s manager in September 1996. But having led the club to the double in his first full season in charge, he quickly became viewed as a revolutionary figure, introducing sophisticated methods to the preparation and well-being of players as well as tapping into the overseas market to sign relatively unheraled players such as Patrick Vieria and Emmanuel Petit who turned out to be world-class talents and part of one of the most thrilling, eye-catching teams ever seen on these shores.

Another double followed in 2002 before the Invincibles campaign, when Arsenal won the 2003-2004 title without losing a single game. Two years later, Wenger led Arsenal to the Champions League final, which they lost to Barcelona, and that ultimately proved to be the beginning of the end as far as his reputation as one of the leading managerial figures in this country was concerned.

Since 2006, the only trophy Arsenal have won has been the FA Cup, albeit on three occasions, while their displays in the Champions League have become increasingly poor, the nadir being their 10-2 aggregate defeat to Bayern Munich last year. Wenger’s defence of this has, in part, included the financial restrictions he has had to work under as a consequence of Arsenal moving to the Emirates Stadium 12 years ago but this line of reasoning has increasingly worn thin with supporters, especially given Arsenal’s increased financial mite in recent years.

Man Shoots Himself In Facebook Live Suicide After Quarrel With Girlfriend. Photos

After Noi left, Naphattarakul continued to drink whisky until he went to the car park and launched the live stream at 2.30am this morning.

Naphattarakul can be seen holding a .38 revolver to his head before a bright orange flash filled the screen when he pulled the trigger.

The stream was still recording when police and his devastated girlfriend arrived at the scene at around 3am.

Noi can be seen collapsing in tears as her friends try to comfort her.

She said: “This is not real. I don’t know he did this. I cannot understand it. I just wanted to go somewhere to sleep. No, it’s my fault.”

Police Lieutenant Mongkol Yiwivet, Deputy Inspector of the Bangplee district police station, said he was told at 3am about a gunshot in the car park.

He added: “At the scene of the parking lot was found the body of Mr Naphattarakul Phachayakan, age 37 years.

Premier League: Why I didn’t do well at Chelsea – Mohamed Salah

Egyptian international, Mohamed Salah has explained why he struggled in the Premier League while at Chelsea.

He said he was not given the chance to do well at Stamford Bridge.

After being signed from Basel for £11million in 2014, Salah spent a season-and-a-half at Stamford Bridge, scoring twice in 19 appearances.

He was sold to Roma for less than half of his initial valuation.

He told Sky Sports, “I know from the first day I wanted to do something different, something special.

“I was here with Chelsea, didn’t get my chance, and then came back. I wanted to show everyone my football. ‘I didn’t play

You can see by the numbers. I didn’t have my chance, but you can see when I did get my chance I proved some people wrong.

“Because in my mind I have to succeed here, when I left the Premier League I said I’d come back, and when I had the chance, I came.

“You can see the difference [in me] between now, a year before, two years before that. Every year, every day, every month I am proving myself. I always try to see my weakness, work on it, to be better as a person and a player, everything

“You can see my body now is different than before, my finishing is different, I am more comfortable on the pitch and am trying to improve every day

I think I have had a great season, doing very well with the team, fighting to be in the top positions, second or third. I can’t forget what the team give me, the way we play, the way they support me inside and outside of the pitch.”

Monica Osagie as student in sex-for-marks scandal – OAU

OAU Ife: Monica Osagie named as the student in the sex-for-marks scandal

The authorities of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife today said Monica Osagie was  the student involved in a sex-for-marks scandal, that has sorely questioned the morality of university dons, in the training of young Nigerians.


Prof. Eyitope Ogunbodede, the Vice Chancellor of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), said Monica Osetobe Osagie was studying for a Masters in Business Administration.

He also announced the suspension of Prof. Richard Akindele, the don  involved in the salacious scandal.

Ogunbodede’s action followed the submission of  the interim report of the committee set up to investigate the allegation of sexual harassment revealed in audio recording.

Professor Richard Akindele: suspended over sex-for-marks scandal

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that a recorded audio conversation of the don  demanding for sex  to increase the marks of a female undergraduate had gone viral.


“The female voice has also been identified as that of Miss Monica Osetobe Osagie, a Postgraduate student on the Master of Business Administration Regular programme.

“The committee observed that a prima facie case of inappropriate relationship with the female student had been established against Professor Richard I. Akindele”.


The Vice Chancellor said that though the investigative committee invited both Akindele and Osagie, only Akindele  appeared before the committee.

“The report indicated that many other witnesses appeared before the committee and gave useful evidence.

“The university is making efforts to ensure that Miss Osagie appears before the investigative committee so that it can hear her side of the case and promptly submit its final report,’’ he said.

Explaining why the lecturer was yet to be sacked, the Vice Chancellor said that the provisions of the relevant statute of the university must be followed.

“Under the provisions of the relevant statute of the university, an academic staff can only be dismissed from service or have his or her appointment terminated only when the matter on which consideration is being given has been investigated by a Joint Council and Senate Committee;

“Also the staff  has appeared before the committee with his or her counsel, if so desired.

“This procedure is the minimum requirement of the law and regulations of the university.

“It should therefore be noted that the suspension of Professor Richard I. Akindele is on the basis of the findings of the Investigative Committee that he is prima facie liable.

“This decision will abide, pending the final determination of the case by the council of the University”, the vice chancellor  said.

Ogunbodede said that the university would continue to do everything legally and morally acceptable in pursuance of its avowed commitment to zero tolerance for sexual harassment, intimidation and, or coercion.
