ISIS Releases 15 Rules Handbook Detailing How Captured Female Sex Slaves Should Be Treated

ISIS Releases 15 Rules Handbook Detailing How Captured Female Sex Slaves Should Be Treated

Dreaded terrorist group ISIS are at it again! A "fatwa" was issued by the terrorist organization back in January according to documents seized by the Anti-ISIS US Special Operations Forces which have just been released. The document entails rules on how ISIS members are to treat women captured as sex slaves.

 The terrorist organization captures women who they give out to their fighters as rewards and incentives, the women are raped repeatedly, sometimes by more than one person. Far from trying to conceal the practice, Islamic State has boasted about it and established a department of 'war spoils' to manage slavery. Read below;

ISIS Releases 15 Rules Handbook Detailing How Captured Female Sex Slaves Should Be Treated

It begins: "One of the graces which Allah has bestowed up the State of Caliphate is the conquest of large surface areas of the country and one of the inevitable consequences of jihad is that women and children of infidels will become captives of Muslims. "Consequently, it is necessary to clarify some rules pertaining to captured prisoners to avoid any violations in dealing with them."
    It is not permissible for the owner of a female captive to have intercourse with her until after she has had menstrual cycle and becomes clean. If she does not menstruate and is pregnant, he is not allowed to have intercourse with her until after she has given birth. It is not permissible to cause her to abort if she is pregnant. If the owner of a female captive releases her, only he can have intercourse with her and he cannot allow someone else to have intercourse with her. If the owner of a female captive, who has a daughter suitable for intercourse, has sexual relations with the latter, he is not permitted to have intercourse with her mother and she is permanently off limits to him. Should he have intercourse with her mother then he is not permitted to have intercourse with her daughter and she is to be off-limits to him. The owner of two sisters is not allowed to have intercourse with both of them; rather he may only have intercourse with just one. The other sister is to be had by him, if he were to relinquish ownership of the first sister by selling her, giving her away or releasing her. If the female captive is owned by a father, his son cannot have intercourse with her and vice-versa. Moreover, intercourse with his wife's female captive is also not permissible. If a father had intercourse with his female captive then gave her away or sold her to his son, he is no longer permitted to have intercourse with her. If the female captive becomes pregnant by her owner, he cannot sell her and she is released after his death. If the owner releases his female captive then he is not permitted to have intercourse with her afterwards because she has become free and is no longer his property. If two or more individuals are involved in purchasing a female captive, none of them are permitted to have sex with her because she is part of a joint ownership. It is not permissible to have intercourse with a female captive during her menstrual cycle. It is not permissible top have anal sex with a female captive. The owner of a female captive should show compassion towards her, be kind to her, not humiliate her and not assign her work she is unable to perform. The owner of a female captive should not sell her to an individual whom he knows will treat her badly or do unto her what Allah has forbidden.

Nigeria Cashew Export Is Worth N49.7 Billion

Nigeria cashew exports worth N49.7b

Nigeria  cashew exports are  worth $250 million (about N49.7 billion) yearly, according to the National  Cashew Association of Nigeria (NCAN).

Speaking at a logistics meeting in Lagos, yesterday, its President, Pastor Tola Faseru said the average export price goes up  year ly with increased demand coming from consuming  nations.

He said Vietnam and India remained Nigeria's largest buyers.

Globally, stocks of nuts, including cashew, in North America and Europe had been low, while global demand had increased. This offers good prospects for the Nigeria's cashew industry this year, he said.

The industry, according to him,  is expected to earn $250 million from export of 180,000 tonnes of cashew nut.

He said global demand for its nut has been forecast to go up. He urged exporters to pay more attention to improve product quality and ensure hygiene and food safety to enable exports.

He  said the cashew industry has developed in recent years and focused on improving technologies.

Faseru  said the industry  wants to increase cashew cultivation area, nationwide and produce 500,000 tonnes by 2020.

He said the association was working with farmers and the government to develop cashew growing areas and giving technical support to farmers to help them increase profits.

To enable Nigeria improve its position as a major  cashew exporter, he said the association decided to hold a meeting with operators across the port value chain in order to reduce the transit time for cashew exports.

He told exporters and farmers that forging a united front can help revamp the cocoa sector, which has over the years, sustained the economy, adding that the collaboration of stakeholders was crucial in global cashew sustainability.

EFCC To Arraign Ex-PDP Chair Bello And Others For Theft Of N300m

EFCC to arraign ex-PDP chair Bello, others for theft of N300m

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has revealed that a former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Dr. Haliru Bello and his son, Abba, got N300million about 11 days to the presidential election.

The cash was drawn from the account of the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) with Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

Petrol To Sell For N86 This Month, January 2016

Petrol To Sell For N86 This Month, January 2016

MotoristS yesterday got a New Year present. Petrol is to sell for N86 per litre at Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) outlets.

Others will sell at N86.50k as against the present N87 per litre.

The Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) said the prices would run from January 1 till March 31, under a revised pricing template.

PPPRA Executive Secretary  Farouk Ahmed broke the news to reporters in Abuja.

Within the new pricing template, the government approved two pump prices-one for NNPC retail outlets  and the other for retail outlets operated by private business concerns.

Both open market prices indicate a N1 and 50k drop from the official pump price of N87 per litre, which will become obsolete on December 31 – tomorrow.

Farouk said the announcement followed the approval of the Minister of Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, for the implementation of the revised template.

The PPPRA has approved importation of three million metric tonnes of petrol in the first quarter of the year. The NNPC was granted 78 per cent of the total allocated volume for the period. The balance of 22 per cent will be supplied by other oil marketing companies.

According to Farouk, a couple of elements that were affected by the price review include traders' margin, which was revised downwards from N1.47 per litre to zero; lightering expenses (N4.07/litre to N2.00/litre) charges by the Nigerian Port Authority (NPA), (N0.77/litre to N0.36/litre); jetty throughput charges, (N0.80/litre to N0.40/litre); storage charge (N3.00/litre to N1.50/litre); bridging fund (N5.85/litre to N4.00/litre) and ex-depot price (N77.66/litre to N77.00/litre).

Other elements, such as retailers' margin, were, however, reviewed upwards from N4.60/litre to N5.00/litre; transporters, from N2.99/litre to N3.05/litre; dealers' margin, from N1.75/litre to N1.95/litre;

"Accordingly, the ex-depot price of PMS shall be N77.00k per litre while the pump price shall be N86.50k per litre – in line with the prevailing market trend.

"The key thing here is that with the revision, the open market price has come down slightly. The new pump price is N86.50k, down from N87 per litre, effective from January 1, 2016.

"However, for NNPC import, because an element of the template which is the financing cost, is not captured in the NNPC template. Therefore, NNPC import is slightly lower. The NNPC price will be N86 per litre, meaning that if you go to NNPC retail stations, you should buy at N86 per litre and then N86.50k in other stations," Ahmed said.

The idea is to instill competition and stability in the downstream petroleum sector, he said.

"Another important point is that this is not static as there will be a quarterly review of the price template. However, if there is a major shift, the minister may call for a review either upwards or downwards, depending on the market.

"But for now, at least for the first quarter, this price remains for three months, from January to March," he added.

Ahmed noted that there was to be a pricing advisory committee made up of industry technocrats and which would sit down from time to time and advise the PPPRA on price movements.

He added: "But the PPPRA will still sit down and do its work. The committee will advise it on any drastic movement in price.

"The open market price is N86.29k. If you do the calculation, that means there is an element of over recovery and what we will do now is that we will go back to the marketers and bill them for the recovery.

"With regards to NNPC, their arrival is N85.93k but they are selling at N86, so there will also be element of over recovery. However, we are comfortable with the numbers."

Speaking more on the review, Ahmed said: "In order to encourage investments in retail outlets, we slightly increased the provisions in the retailers, transporters, and dealers' margins.

"In terms of distribution margin, we have also revised down the bridging fund and increased the retailers, dealers and transporters' margins."

On the Q1 import permit, Ahmed did not disclose the identity of marketers selected for the period but stated that the agency had considered three key factors in selecting them.

These factors, he said, include retail outlets ownership; marketers' performance in previous quarterly allocation; as well as the challenges in sourcing foreign exchange.

He noted that in allowing the NNPC to import 78 per cent of the total allocated volume, the agency envisaged that the corporation would have little challenges in sourcing for foreign exchange while the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) would be able to comfortably take care of the foreign exchange demands of the other marketers who would import the remaining 22 per cent.

"This measure is to guarantee uninterrupted fuel supply nationwide. Marketers are required to note that there shall be a mid-quarter review of performance where volumes of non-performing marketers, including the NNPC shall be withdrawn and reallocated to performing marketers," Ahmed explained.

He also stated that the NNPC had in previous allocations done up to 111 per cent in product importation to stabilise supply, adding that future allocations shall be based on 100 per cent performance in the Q1, 2016 allocation.

Ahmed said the revised template was built a little bit above the earlier daily consumption rate of 40 million litres per day.

He said the agency is currently verifying the October, November and December claims of marketers for subsidy, after which the Debt Management Office (DMO) would be notified for further action.

Sad Tales Of Nigerians In Mandela's Country

Sad tales of Nigerians in Mandela's country

In this piece, ENIOLA AKINKUOTU examines the sufferings of Nigerians in South Africa and the failure of the Nigerian government to address their situation

Thirty-five-year old Lucky Ndudi is one of many Nigerians that migrated to South Africa for greener pasture. The Delta State indigene, who became a mechanic in Jeppes, a town near Johannesburg, the nation's capital, got married and has three children.

As is the normal practice, Ndudi uses the proceeds he receives from repairing and selling cars not to sustain his immediate family alone but to support the members of his extended family in Nigeria. However, on April 11, 2015, some irate South African youths stormed his workshop and destroyed all the vehicles in it.

Ndudi not only lost his personal property, 47 vehicles in his garage were also damaged. The vehicles belonged to his customers. He said, "Forty-seven cars in my mechanic garage were damaged. Some car parts and tools were stolen and the garage was burnt. I lost everything during the attack. The value of the loss is R1.1m or N19.7m and things have not been easy for me and my family."

Noting that life may never be the same again, he added, "It is eight months after the attacks, we have not received any assistance from the government. My present situation has forced me to move out of my rented apartment to a cheaper place. Friends have been calling on phone but nobody has given me any assistance."

The Chief Executive Officer of Xtyres & Motors Ltd, Ifeanyi Ifediora, shared a similar fate as his workshop was also vandalised and set ablaze by irate youths during the xenophobic attacks in April.

For a Nigerian restaurateur, Oliver Joe, the story was not different. According to Nigerian officials, Joe's restaurant was vandalised in the presence of policemen.

"They vandalised his restaurant, ate his food, beat him and his workers up in the presence of policemen and nothing happened," said Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, a former chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Diaspora Affairs.

According to the President of the Nigerian Union in South Africa, Mr. Ikechukwu Anyene, many other Nigerians were physically assaulted and hospitalised but later discharged. He added that none of the victims – some of whom had been rendered homeless – was compensated.

The Nigerian Consul General in South Africa, Ambassador Uche Ajulu-Okeke, said Nigerians lost more than R1.2m (N21 million) in the 2015 xenophobic attacks. She added that the losses included looted and burnt shops.

She said that in Durban, two of the three Nigerians who were wounded during the attacks had been treated and discharged from the hospital, adding that at least 50 Nigerians were stranded in the Jeppe community, which is notorious for attacks on foreigners.

This has been the plight of many Nigerians who go to South Africa, which is ironically referred to as the "Rainbow Nation", due to its diverse cultures.

The poverty argument

According to reports, the orchestrated attacks on Nigerians and many other Africans in 2015 started after Zulu King, Goodswill Zwelithini, made a provocative statement in which he blamed foreigners for taking the jobs meant for South Africans and causing poverty among its citizens, an allegation the king has since denied.

Edward Zuma, the son of South African President, Jacob Zuma, also accused foreigners of snatching jobs from South African citizens, saying, "We need to be aware that as a country, we are sitting on a ticking time bomb of foreigners taking over the country.

"The reason why I am saying this is because some of the foreigners are working for private security companies where they have been employed for cheap labour. These companies are not complying with South African labour laws."

Reports also indicate that Nigerians living in poor South African communities were usually the most affected whenever there was an attack.

However, Dabiri-Erewa maintained that xenophobic attacks against Nigerians and other Africans started a long time ago and had nothing to do with unemployment. She said that South Africa indirectly encouraged xenophobia. She maintained that even Nigerians in prison were treated worse than South African prisoners.

She said, "We (Reps) were in a South African prison sometime ago and you need to see how even in prison, Nigerians were very much discriminated against. Little things that other nationals would get away with, Nigerians didn't get away with them. Some South Africans say 'foreigners have taken our jobs' but you see, those jobs that they are talking about are jobs that they have rejected. So, low-income earning South Africans need to have a better understanding of their problem."

Dabiri-Erewa also alleged that Nigerian professionals were also frustrated by the South African government.

Corrupt Nigerian consulate officials

According to the Consul General, Ajulu-Okeke, many distressed Nigerians find it difficult to come to the Nigerian consulate in South Africa because Nigerian officials, including immigration personnel, extort them.

The situation worsens the plight of victimised Nigerians who might take to crime in frustration. Ajulu-Okeke revealed that a large percentage of the one million Nigerian population living in South Africa is illiterate. She said, "I am amazed by the number of illiterate Nigerians in South Africa and only God knows how they came here."

Explaining that she had been able to curb corruption in the system, she added, "Now, Nigerians don't need any intermediary to process Nigerian passports or do any official engagement at the Nigerian consulate in South Africa. This is quite unlike what obtained in the past when Nigerians were feeding on their brothers and sisters like vultures. Nigerians were working against themselves. It was a pathetic situation I met here.

"Nigerians would stand at the gate, afraid to come into their own country's consulate. I learnt that some officers would tell ignorant applicants, 'Madam has brought diplomatic police. If you come here, they will deport you straight. Bring N4,000, let me go and beg the diplomatic police for you.'

"On a service that costs only N1,000, they would pay these 'vultures' $100. For something that costs N4,000, they would pay $400. So, you would see many people at the gate who were afraid to come into their own country."

So, these Nigerians were continually frightened to the extent that they do not know their rights until I abolished the visa and passport agencies and established a new system."

Weak foreign policy

According to experts, Nigeria's weak foreign policy is one of the major reasons why its citizens living in South Africa suffer xenophobic attacks.

A former Minister of State for the Interior, Chief Demola Seriki, argues that Nigeria has failed in the area of retaliation. He explained that Nigeria as the "Giant of Africa" must be able to retaliate whenever South Africa implements anti-Nigerian policies.

Seriki said Nigeria could take advantage of the many South African companies in Nigerian to arm-twist the South African government.

He said, "I remember a conversation I had with the then South African Minister of Interior when we had an altercation because they were so biased towards Nigeria and Nigeria was not doing the same towards them. So, I think we need to develop a strong reciprocity paper which is already there but is not being implemented.

"For example, in South Africa, if you buy a property, your money is welcome but if you sell the house, the money must remain in South Africa. You must look for a South African to buy that house; you cannot take the money out. We need to do the same thing for them.

"They have large investments in Nigeria: MTN, MultiChoice, Protea Hotel and Nigeria is the number one consumer of South African wines. So, we need to really do more in the area of reciprocity. The reciprocity of Nigeria to South Africa is very weak but the reciprocity of South Africa to Nigeria is very strong. So, that is what the Minister of Interior must do.

"Even as a minister, I recall the then Ambassador to South Africa, Col. Buba Marwa, showed me pictures of Nigerians that were maimed by South Africans. Some were even subjected to jungle justice."

Also speaking, Dabiri-Erewa, said Nigerian business concerns were deliberately frustrated by the South African authorities.

She said Nigeria must awake from its slumber and stamp its dominance.

Dabiri-Erewa said, "Nigerian business concerns in South Africa like Oando and Dangote are listed on the stock exchange but they (South Africa) don't allow patronage. Zenith Bank and Union Bank have tried to set up branches there but they (South African authorities) have refused. But South African businesses like MTN, Shoprite and MultiChoice are thriving here in Nigeria unhindered."

A Senior Lecturer at the University of Lagos, Dr. David Aworawo, said the relationship between South Africa and Nigeria was regrettable. He recalled that Nigeria spent millions of dollars to emancipate South Africa from apartheid, adding that Nigeria also did everything within its power to ensure that Nelson Mandela was released from prison.

Aworawo said Nigeria must present itself as a "no-nonsense" country to the international community, adding that once this is done, South Africa and other African nations will not toy with the lives of Nigerians.

He said, "I think Nigeria needs to be more vibrant in its application of tit for tat. It is not all the time that South Africa gets away with its actions against Nigeria. A few years ago, Nigerians were deported by South Africa from the airport because they were said not to have Yellow Fever vaccination cards

"In retaliation, Nigeria deported a lot more South Africans than South Africa had deported. South Africa initially said they would not apologise but when South Africa saw the impact it was having on their economy, they apologised and they said they would be helping Nigerians to procure Yellow fever vaccination cards. Nigeria needs more of that.

South Africa reacts

However, South Africa's High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr. Lulu Mnguni, said xenophobia was not a South African issue but an African one, adding that it stemmed from poverty and inequality.

He said South Africa had overcome xenophobia largely and that many reports on the attack were exaggerated.

Mnguni said even if the unemployment rate in South Africa increases next year, attacks on foreigners would not recur because the citizens are now determined to end xenophobia. He said other international bodies like the African Union were seriously involved in the fight against the evil act.

When asked if Nigerians that suffered xenophobic attacks were compensated by the South African government, he said those who lost their property should seek redress in court as it was purely a 'police matter'.

He said, "Let people take this matter to court to address whatever they think was done against them. We have said the matter should be handled by the police and our Home Affairs (department) because it was people from Nigeria and many other countries that were affected. South Africans rallied together to contain this thing and it was defeated eight months ago. Nigerians were not as affected as those in other countries."

Fixing Nigeria

In 1994, South Africa became a shining example to Africa and the world when it ended a racial cold war as it drew the curtain on the world's most notorious system of racial segregation and elected Nelson Mandela as its president. Accordingly, it became the number one destination for migrants in search of greener pastures.

According to the Economist, investors fret that South Africa's 'liabilities' might soon become unsustainable. The magazine said, "Its (South Africa's) credit rating is one notch above junk and it might require a bailout from the IMF. Many of the white investors have also fled the country which means that the unemployment rate may rise. This could also lead to more xenophobic attacks next year."

Ultimately, experts argue that the best way to curb illegal migration is to ensure that there are adequate jobs, security and infrastructure in Nigeria.

Ex-Russian agent claims Putin planted the jet bomb bomb that killed 224 Russians

Ex-Russian agent claims Putin planted the jet bomb bomb that killed 224 Russians

A former Russian agent has come up with a bizzare theory about the bomb laden Russian plane which killed  224 Russians in Egypt was planted by Russian Prime Minister himself Valdimir Putin.Boris Karpichkov, a former spy with the KGB (later renamed the FSB) who now lives under a new identity with his wife and family at a secret location in England after fleeing here in fear for his life.

His sensational claim at first seems unbelievable. For he maintains it was the Kremlin, not ISIS, that deliberately blew the plane out of the sky.

And he says Putin cynically authorised the tragedy not only to obtain worldwide sympathy at a time when Russia was being treated as a pariah because of its aggression towards Ukraine, but also to gain support for its ostensible belligerence against ISIS, which Putin would use as a cover to attack rebel groups in Syria who were sworn enemies of his ally President al-Assad.The major claims his information comes from a general lieutenant in GRU (one of Russia's numerous military intelligence wings).

This man told him, he says, that around the time of the plane's crash, Putin had been expressing his concerns to Kremlin allies about 'possible losses of political influence' in Syria and the Middle East. Putin, he went on, was worried about the fate of his traditional ally in the region, President al-Assad, given the West's support for rebel groups trying to depose him.

A plan was allegedly hatched by officials within GRU to reverse Russia's declining influence in the region and - as Major Karpichkov claims he was told by a senior source - to 'kill two rabbits with one bullet'.

The aim was to get 'at least silent international approval' for massive military operations against Assad's enemies under the guise of a campaign against the IS terrorists blamed for bombing the Russian passenger jet; and to bolster Russia's multi-billion-pound weapons business with the Middle East.

This was all summarised in a dossier compiled by the former KGB spy: 'In order to accomplish all these aims and to get Western consent to fighting Islamic State (which was, essentially, official support for keeping the Assad regime in power), the Kremlin desperately needed the kind of justification which would generate worldwide attention and full international sympathy and approval for military action.'The file states that Russian intelligence 'geniuses' in GRU outlined a plan to Putin and his closest aides to bomb a Russian airliner and blame it on Islamic extremists 'to initiate enormous international hate towards ISIS and to create international sympathy to act on its own without any limits or reservations (for military action).'

A specialist in 'wet-jobs' and other forms of espionage was despatched to Sharm el-Sheikh, where hundreds of thousands of Russians holiday each year to escape the cold. Posing as a fighter who was recuperating in the Red Sea after serving in Ukraine, the agent befriended a young Russian woman staying in the resort, and began a holiday romance.

When the woman was due to leave for St Petersburg, the Russian agent gave her a 'present' - asking her to deliver it to his parents at home in Russia - and escorted her through the notoriously lax security at Sharm el-Sheikh airport before she boarded the doomed Metrojet flight in the early hours of the morning.

Ex-Russian agent claims Putin planted the jet bomb bomb that killed 224 Russians

The gift, says Major Karpichkov, was a bomb and the detonator used to ignite the explosives was known as an EHV-7, which is produced exclusively for special forces soldiers. The device itself looked like a piece of plumbing tube, which is primed to explode by an electrolyte 'bath' slowly corroding a metallic wire, which detonates the bomb once it is broken.

The explosive material was - sources add - cyclonite, an enormously powerful substitute for TNT.

It has been suggested that the bomb was most likely placed under the seat 30A or 31A. Plane records show that seat 30A was occupied by Nadezhda Bashakova, 77, from Volkhov in St Petersburg region, travelling with her daughter Margarita Simanova, 43, who sat in 30B. In seat 31A was Maria Ivleva, 15, also from St Petersburg region. Could this young woman have been be the unwitting carrier of the bomb? She was with her mother Marina Ivleva, 44, who occupied seat 31B. My sources say the bomb carrier was older, and sitting nearby.

International Airlines to Reduce Flights to Nigeria Next Year

International Airlines to Reduce Flights to Nigeria Next Year

Citing Nigeria's slowing economy amid scarcity of foreign exchange, international airlines that operate to different destinations in the country plan to reduce flights to Nigeria from early 2016, THISDAY investigations have revealed.

The airlines, according to sources, are aggrieved that they cannot exchange billions of revenue in Naira in their possession to dollars and repatriate to their various countries because of the new fiscal policies of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

The International Air Transport Association (IATA), recently pleaded with the Governor of CBN,
Godwin Emiefele to intervene in the matter and make dollars available to the airlines. Nothing has been done yet; although he gave assurances to the world body, a close source told THISDAY.

The foreign airlines also had met with the Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi and urged him to look into their case but nothing concrete has been done on the matter.

THISDAY gathered that from March 2016, British Airways would reduce its flights to Nigeria by bringing in aircraft with smaller capacity than the traditional Boeing 747, which operates the lucrative Lagos-London route.

It was also gathered that other foreign airlines may either change their aircraft type and operate ones with smaller capacity or reschedule and reduce the number of flights to Nigeria and those which have not been recording high load factor in the Nigerian route may stop flights to the country.

An informed source from one of the major international airlines, which operate daily to Lagos told THISDAY that next year would be scary because things are not looking so good.
"The situation is scary. Things are not looking so good. Some parents whose children are in school overseas are considering withdrawing them as our economy, which has become the strongest economy in Africa is grinding to a halt. We don't want to make our plan to reduce operations public because we don't want to cause any panic. This will affect everybody; it is going to also affect my staff because some of them might lose their jobs. BA will definitely reduce service; it is a decision we must have to take," the source said.
The source noted that failure to repatriate the airline's revenue is affecting aircraft leases and fuelling as the money so generated is used to pay for fuel and renew aircraft leases.
"We have so much money which cannot be released because there is no foreign currency. Now, we cannot accept dollars from passengers; unless they are paying with credit cards, so if a passenger comes to buy ticket with dollars we will not accept because of the new policies. I do not believe that they want to make us suffer but they should have directed these policies to the areas where they import toothpick, glasses and others, not on air transport and other sectors that are critical for the economy to thrive and grow. It is not only BA that will reduce its operation; every international airline will reduce something," the source also said.
The source also suggested that CBN should endeavor to provide foreign exchange to the essential service sector so that the economy would not grind to a halt.
"I am worried about all these but we have to be seen to be supporting government so I do not wish to raise any alarm, but the truth has to be said. We need prayers right now; we need to pray for those in government for them to have wisdom to take the right decision for this country," the source also said.
The source said that marketers had dropped notice that airlines would start paying for aviation fuel in dollars from next year.

"Without fuel, how can we operate? The situation is very scary," the source added.

Santos said as far as he was concerned Ariadna Gutierrez remained the winner.
"I was watching Miss Universe with my family. We started a huge celebration when they said Colombia had won the Miss Universe title for the second straight year,"
"To me, our queen is and will remain Miss Universe. They put the crown on her head. The photos are there to prove it. To me, as a Colombian, she is still Miss Universe" he concluded.
