Kate Moss & Mary J Blige Visit George Michael's Grave


Pals Kate Moss and Mary J Blige pay their respects to singer George Michael on a poignant visit to his grave.

They met at 43-year-old model Kate’s home before making the short trip to Highgate Cemetery, North London, where George – who died at 53 on Christmas Day – is buried. Fans are barred from his resting place.

R&B legend Mary, 46, duetted on George’s 1999 greatest hits album – a cover of Stevie Wonder’s
As.

Kate is reportedly thinking of filming a documentary in the late singer's home.

Earlier this year, she was spotted at George's Highgate property, working on a documentary entitled Freedom.

It would be the first time a film crew was granted access into George's North London home.

An incredible shrine is still in place outside George's home more than six months after his tragic death.

Followers make the pilgrimage to the 16th century property in Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, to lay flowers, pictures and messages outside.

Many say they go there because they haven’t had a chance to say goodbye to their hero. May his soul continue to rest in peace.

PDP To Lai Mohammed: You, Buhari, Are The Authors Of Hate Speeches

 
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP as taken a swipe at the Information and Culture Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed for fingering opposition parties as the mastermind of hate speeches currently threatening the unity of the Nigerian State.

In a press statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary, National Caretaker Committee of the PDP, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the party expressed shock at the Minister’s outburst even as it described the statement as another lie from Alhaji Mohammed.

“The Leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is taken aback over the recent vituperation by the Honourable Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed in which he accused opposition in the Country as being responsible for hate speeches, disinformation and fake news. How convenient! This is another lie from Lai Mohamned!!

 “Mr. Minister is invited to review his past speeches/statements as Spokesman of opposition ACN/APC and then he will agree with us that the APC leaders/members are the architects and sustainers of hate speeches in our dear Country, Nigeria,” the PDP scribe wrote in a statement.

Adeyeye further said the Minister ought not to forget easily that in the past, he similarly took on the ruling party while he was in the camp of the opposition.

 “In case Lai Mohammed has forgotten, let us remind him and his Parties, the ACN & APC that in their desperate quest to grab power by all means, organized and carried out series of campaigns of calumny as opposition designed to mislead the public, discredit the person and Office of past PDP led administrations especially, that of the immediate past President, Dr. Goodluck E. Jonathan, GCFR in order to cause disaffection amongst Nigerians against his government.

“Alhaji Lai Mohammed as the Spokesman of ACN at a press conference in April 2013 raised a false alarm alleging that the Federal government of Nigeria under President Jonathan had awarded an oil pipeline protection contract to serve as a smokescreen in funding activities that would create chaos in the South-West region.

Of course, it turned out that no such contract was ever awarded by the Jonathan Administration. “Still in April 2013, the ACN Spokesman now Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed mischievously alleged that President Jonathan had issued a Presidential Directive targeted at witch-hunting the Former Governor of Lagos State and Leader of the ACN , Bola Tinubu in order to stop the Merger of the Party with other political parties.

This also turned out to be a hoax,” the statement continued. The PDP also added that apart from the Minister, other prominent members of the APC also made speeches capable of causing disharmony in the land prior to the 2015 polls.

” Also before the 2015 General Elections, the Chairman of APC, Chief John Oyegun in November 2014, vowed to form a parallel government if the elections were rigged. His statement was later re-echoed by the Presidential Campaign Director-General of the APC, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, and now Minister for Transport,” the statement noted, adding that “talk about distractions, intimidation, harassments and hate speeches defines the APC leaders and members.

“Let us not forget the Infamous inflammatory statements by General Muhammadu Buhari that caused wide spread violence and killings of Nigerians in the 2011 General Elections. The General repeated almost the same statement on the 14th of May 2012 in Kaduna State when some CPC members from Niger State paid him a visit.

He was quoted to have incited his supporters saying “…if what happened in 2011 should again happen in 2015, by the grace of God, the dog and the baboon would all be soaked in blood.’’
Till date, President Muhammadu Buhari has neither refuted the statement nor offer any explanation for it.

What could be more hateful than such a call for pogrom or mass murder of innocent Nigerians? The list of such hateful and inciting speeches by the APC leaders and especially their erstwhile spokesman is endless. It was a period of one lie, one day. All in the desperate bid to grab power at all cost. Now that they have the power,they don’t know what to do with it,” wrote Adeyeye lamentably.

“Lai Mohammed and indeed any of the APC leaders for that matter are not in the position to teach any lessons on appropriate public speeches. They should first apologize to Nigerians for their serial lies, inciting and hate speeches with which our people were deceived into believing that they had something to offer.

 They should then undergo the serious ritual of self purgation without which there will be a constant relapse into their goebbellian tactics as we continue to witness. It is so ironic that those who haul mud at people do not ever want sand thrown at them. If you are not ready to take the heat you better leave the kitchen,” it stated.

“Our advice to the APC Government is that it should concentrate on doing the business of the people and to endeavour to speak the truth always. Lies can take you thus far but in the end it cannot be an alternative to the truth,” wrote Adeyeye.

Still On R.Kelly's Sex Cult! Young Girl Speaks Out, He Promised Me A Career, I Posed N*de For Kelly


R. Kelly failed to successfully lure a young woman into his life, despite giving her cash and promising to jump-start her career and the woman says she has her mom to thank.

The woman tells TMZ she met the singer backstage at one of his shows in December after getting a wristband from someone in his crew. She was 20 at the time.

She says R. Kelly gave her his number and the two exchanged calls and texts, and he promised to help her become an actress/model. He invited her to his Georgia home and told her to "wear
something sexy." She claims she brought a friend, but it got real creepy, no phones were allowed and suddenly she was escorted to R's bedroom.

The woman says Kelly asked her to strut around and pose like a model and convinced her to take sexy photos. She says he paid her $200 when she left and told her to use it to buy black lingerie, heels and red lipstick for her next visit, which she did.

TMZ was told she went back to R. Kelly's place two more times alone but each time he got more aggressive and controlling, even guilting her into posing nude. She says they never had sex.

She says the last straw was him sending her a one-way ticket to be with him back in L.A. in February, warning her not to bring a friend. She says she felt uneasy and told her mother, who promptly put the kibosh on the trip.

TMZ however reached out to Kelly, but they got no response.

Egypt Sentences 28 To Death For Killing Of Country's Top Prosecutor

 
A Cairo criminal court on Saturday sentenced to death 28 people over the 2015 killing of Egypt's top prosecutor after the death penalty was approved by the country's top religious authority, and it also jailed 15 others for 25 years each.

Public prosecutor Hisham Barakat was killed in a car bomb attack on his convoy in the capital, an operation for which Egypt blamed the Muslim Brotherhood and Gaza-based Hamas militants. Both groups have denied having a role.

The court had in June recommended passing the death penalty to Egypt's top religious leader, the Grand Mufti, who can approve or reject the recommendation. The mufti's guidance is required when a court seeks the death penalty but his decision is not binding..

The sentences, confirmed by the court in Saturday's hearing, can however be appealed.

Randy Newman Cant Explain Trump's P!nis Song


Legendary singer/songwriter Randy Newman can't quite explain why he wrote a song about President Trump's dong.

Randy was pinned down at LAX by a reporter who pressed him about the penis song - which he ultimately decided to scrap for his upcoming album. Randy says he was just adding more vulgarity to the situation and didn't feel right about it, even if Trump had it coming.

Fortunately, Newman divulged some of the lyrics he had in mind last week, which include ... "My d**k’s bigger than your d**k / It ain’t braggin’ if it’s true / My d**k’s bigger than your d**k / I can
prove it too."

Anyway, sounds like Randy wants to apologize now.

As you'll recall, President Trump talked about the size of his package last year during one of the Republican debates, which brought about Randy boasting about his dong bigger than that of the US President.

How I Sneak Out Of Prison To Share Robbery Loot – Suspect (photos)

                                        

An inmate of Kaduna Prison, Bashir Ali has confessed to the police how he managed to sneak out of the prison for days just to collect his share from a robbery incident that took place in Kano.

Ali whose mother is from Tokyo, Japan, was arrested alongside some of his gang members identified as Umaru Inusa, Ahmed Kamalu, Adamu Danjuma and Barfa Ahmad by detectives attached to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Special Tactical Squad (STS).

On his arrest, police sources said that sometime in June, a gang of robbers invaded Kofaruwa quarters in Kano and robbed about three houses. They stole a Toyota Matrix car and several valuables, which
include laptops, television sets, phones and money.

The victims alerted the operatives of STS while the officer in-charge of the squad, ACP Yusuf Kolo deployed detectives to fish out the gang members. In the course of investigation, they arrested some of the gang members and recovered the car and some other valuables that they were yet to dispose.

It was in the process of further investigation that detectives discovered that one of the masterminds of the robbery, Bashir Ali was in Kaduna prison. Unknown to him (Ali), some of his gang members had been arrested by the police. Hoping that it was business as usual, Ali sneaked out of the prison to collect his share from the proceeds of the robbery when policemen who were on his trail arrested him.


Journey to prison

At the police station, Ali who speaks impeccable English said it was greed that landed him in prison as he is from a good home. “I am an indigene of Kano State and my mother is from Tokyo. She came to Kano with her parents who were traders. In the process, she (Ali’s mother) fell in love with my father and I am a proud product of that love. I am married and I have three kids. I have no reason to commit crime because I also have an option of travelling to Tokyo if I was not satisfied with my financial status in Nigeria.”

On his journey to Kano Central prison, Karaumawa, Ali recalled that sometime in 2010, he got involved in a shady business, which led to the sale of a property in Kano that belongs to one of his friends.

“Boys were broke so we were looking for every possible means to make money. So my friend Ahmed who just lost his father then told me that he wanted to sell one of his father’s houses without the consent of the family. He said that since he was also part of the family that no one will question his decision. We got several estate agents involved and finally sold it for N8million.

“Unfortunately, when the buyer wanted to take possession of the property, the family members refused insisting that they never consented to it and that the documents presented were stolen.

We were arrested same year and charged to court. I was sentenced to seven years jail in 2015 after awaiting trial for two years.”


The stunt

After several years, Ali claimed that he was able to convince the prison warders that he had truly repented of his sins and was ready to be rehabilitated.

According to him, eleven of them were selected and transferred to Kaduna rehabilitation prison popularly known as Open Camp.

“I was lucky that they selected me in 2015. When we got to the camp, I chose to be a farmer where I learnt how to cultivate vegetables including curry leaves and waterleaves. The proceeds you get from the farm will be saved for you so that when you finish your stay in the prison, you will have money to start a new life.

In that prison you are free to roam around and sneak in and out of the yard unnoticed. The rule was that you must come for head count every 10am, 12pm, 2am and 6pm. So if you don’t want to get into trouble, wherever you go, you must return for head count.”




He also alleged that the prison warders who were taking care of them were aware of these movements and normally keep tab on them. “It is a game of trust. The warder must approve of your movement so that if you mistakenly fail to return on time, he will give you a number in absence. We all have phones and whenever you cannot make it back on time, you will call the warder and tell him. It is also your responsibility to ensure that the warder is well taken care of financially so that he can cover for you in case you want to travel and spend some days outside.”

On his arrest, Ali lamented that while in Kano prison, he made a lot friends who have served out their jail terms. He collected most of their numbers and agreed to exchange ideas.

“It is good to make friends so that when they leave, they will help with money. Most of them who left went back to crime and normally send money to us.

“So while in Kaduna prison, one of them contacted me that they were broke and needed any means of making quick money.
It was during the Ramadan fast and everyone needed money to celebrate after the fasting. I gave them some ideas and people to meet. At the end of the robbery operation, they cheated me and hid the physical cash that they got. Luckily, Bawa kept one of the cars for me. I then referred them to an ex-convict who is into buying stolen cars.

They were on their way to deliver the car and money when police caught them. They were so wicked that they did not alert me that they had been caught. Rather, they called to tell me that the car had been sold that I should come to Zaria and collect my share.

“Few days to Sallah, I told the yard master popularly known as Baba Kubo and he granted me some days to travel. He knows that I will always come back, that was why he agreed. So around 12pm that day I left for Kano where they were supposed to wait for me. Because I did not have much money, I visited some of my friends in town and got some money before I proceeded to the agreed location. It was there that police arrested me,” he said.


Plea for mercy


Begging for mercy, Ali said he had truly repented but was just looking for money to buy Sallah gifts for himself and the warders who were kind to him. “I am finished; I can’t believe that I am going to start all over again. Please help me and don’t send me back to prison.”

He alleged that his life will get worse if he is sent back to prison. “The prison will turn you into a criminal. It does not change anyone because an idle mind is the devil’s workshop. Most especially, if you are from a poor home, no one will visit you or help you with money to hire a lawyer. There are so many people who stole chicken and goat that are in the prison. They are there because they could not afford the option of fine given by the magistrate.

“I assure you that by the time they spend a year or two serving their sentence they will steal a car as soon as they are released,” he alleged.


More suspects

Another suspect, Adamu who contacted Ali for the robbery claimed that he was simply obeying the instruction of his brother, Bawa. “My brother called me to get in-touch with Ali that he is aware of the robbery and the proceeds. It was Ali who gave us the number of the buyer. We were on our way to Zaria to meet the buyer when policemen caught us.”

Yet another suspect, Bafa, an Islamic cleric said that it was greed that led them to committing crime. “I am a native of Maiduguri and my parents decided to send me to Arabic school to learn how to be a priest. Upon graduation, I started praying for people in trouble. This did not give me enough money because I normally collect N500 to pray for people and if they succeed they might come back to appreciate me.

Some of them are criminals and when they succeed they will come back and give me gifts. This was how Kabiru and three other boys came to me. After the robbery, they brought the car and asked me to help them sell it. It was a Toyota Matrix and they wanted to sell it for N800, 000. The agreement was that whatever extra money we get from the sale belongs to me. We were on our way to meet the buyer when the police arrested us,” he said.


Prison Service reacts

When contacted, the Nigeria Prison Service Public Relations Officer, Francis Enabore said that no inmate in the Kaduna open prison is allowed to leave the premises unaccompanied. “These are inmates who have spent better part of their sentences in the regular prisons with walls. They are recommended by their prison warder to be of good behaviour.

They are transferred to that prison to prepare them for the journey ahead when they finally regain their freedom. They are allowed to visit the farms, which are within the premises and monitored from a distance. Any attempt to leave the premises, the person will be cautioned. These inmates who are determined to be better persons in the society normally obey the law guarding the prison.”

On the recent arrest of Ali outside the prison, Enabore assured that the discovery will be investigated and any officer found culpable will be dealt with according to the law.

Meanwhile another senior prison officer who spoke with Saturday Sun on the condition of anonymity explained that the Kaduna open prison is meant for inmates who have proven beyond all reasonable doubt that they are of good behavior. “Such person will be recommended by warders who have monitored them over the years.

They are selected all over the country to go to that prison for proper rehabilitation. They are taught different handiworks including farming. The proceeds gotten will be saved for them, which will be given to the inmates at the end of their stay in prison.

“Such persons are allowed to wander around the yard especially to their farms. They are expected to return every 6pm for head count. They are not allowed to travel, therefore any officer who permits that will be punished.”

On the arrest of Ali, he said that most of the inmates are good at deceiving the system. “They pretend to have repented just to be released. I guess Ali is a typical example of such. It’s unfortunate that the officer who approved his transfer will be in trouble.”

Kemi Olunloyo Is Bullying My Daughter - Seyi Law


Popular comedian, Oluwaseyitan Lawrence Aletile, aka Seyi Law, in an excusive chat with Sunday Scoop says what Kemi Olunloyo is doing to his daughter is called bullying and he hs never seen any adult as old as she is bully a child. He also said contrary to Olunloyo's claims, his daughter is very healthy. He said;

“This is just a case of a person who has refused to seek help. It is obvious that Kemi has decided to bully my daughter. Bullies usually fight people who are within their age bracket and people who have the same body size as them. For her to attack my daughter only means that she is unwell. Who bullies
a young child? Never have I seen someone her age bully a child as young as my daughter who is barely a year old.

I have decided to ignore her rants. She also made some obnoxious claims about my daughter’s health. But when you’re a man that wakes up every day, knowing the only reason your daughter visits the hospital is to take her vaccines, you have every reason to be grateful to God.”

Speaking further, he said, “According to her, there was an article in which I said I rejoiced she was sent to prison. But it’s apparent she only read the headline of the article, and not the body. She did not even know that I was pleading on her behalf. I will keep celebrating my daughter and having wonderful times with my wife.”

On the veracity of Olunloyo’s claims that his wife, Stacey’s relative informed her (Olunloyo) that Tiwa has Type 1 Diabetes, Seyi laughed it off. “That doesn’t even make any sense. For the records though, my wife does not have any relative in the United Kingdom,” he said.

Explaining the only physical interaction they had before the online battle of words, Seyi said, “Prior to her rants online, I only met her once. That was during a Glo Lafftafest show in Ibadan when she came backstage to interview me; that was all.”

Seyi also maintained that his wife isn’t bothered by Kemi’s rants. “My baby is fine; there’s nothing wrong with her. I am the one who is a celebrity and I’m the one who should talk. My wife is not even bothered,” he said.

Steer Clear Of Benue, Rivers, Leaders Tell Nnamdi Kanu


Leaders of the various ethnic nationalities in Benue and Rivers state have asked Nnamdi Kanu to steer clear of their lands in his bid to expand the territory of his proposed Biafra Republic beyond the five states in the Eastern part of Nigeria.

Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra alleged that an agent of the Federal Government, whose name he did not disclose, offered him while in detention, to secede with the five Igbo states but that he rejected the offer because it did not constitute the complete territory of Biafra.

Kanu had while addressing leaders of an Igbo civil society coalition said, “They gave me Biafra in prison with only the five Igbo states; I said no, I want Benue and Rivers states inclusive.”

But prominent indigenes of the ethnic groups in Benue and Rivers states, which he is seeking to annex, described the Biafran agitator as a jester.

For instance, a retired police chief, Abubakar Tsav, said Kanu must be suffering from ‘mental ailments’ to utter such utterance.

He said, “I think the man has some mental problems. What is the connection between the Tivs, the Idoma and the Igbo? I think the man needs to see a psychiatric doctor because something is wrong with him.

“He is not well because nothing connects the Tivs, the Idoma to the Igbo. How can he say he wants Benue State to be part of Biafra? He should stay where he is and carry on with his madness. We are not ready to be part and parcel of his madness”

Other prominent indigenes of Tiv, Idoma and Igede, the three major ethnic groups in Benue State who also lashed out at Kanu included, a first-class traditional ruler in Tivland, the Tor Sankera,  Abu King Shuluwa; a former Minister of Interior, Abba Moro; a former Minister of State for Education, Professor Jerry Agada and former Economic Adviser to former president Olusegun Obasanjo, Professor Ode Ojowu.

King Shuluwa described Kanu as “a man with little intelligence who dared lumped Benue as part of Biafra.”

He said, “His level of intelligence is in question, else, how dare him to annex Benue as part of Biafra territory. In fact, if you are looking for more people to be part of your territory, does common sense not say you should have a talk with them?”

Moro corroborated the monarch’s submission stressing that the Igbo language, culture and tradition are clearly different from those of the three tribes in Benue State.

He said, “Benue is not part of Biafra, we do not have any relationship with Biafra in genealogy, culture and by colonial creation, Benue is part of the north.”

Agada on his part, warned the Indigenous People of Biafra and the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra to stop laying claims to Idoma land  as part of their territory.

Also in Rivers State, Ogbakor Ikwerre, a body of the Ikwerre Ethnic Nationality in Rivers State also disagreed with Kanu on his demand that Rivers State must be part of Biafra.

President-General of Ogbakor Ikwerre Cultural Organisation, Worldwide, Professor Simeon Achinewhu, told Sunday Punch that Biafra failed in the past because there were attempts by the former Biafran leader, late Odumegwu Ojukwu, to force unwilling minority groups into Biafra.

The President, Ijaw Youth Council, Eric Omare, asked Kanu to have a rethink about the territory of the Biafra of his dream and restrict it to the states of the South-East.

Omare said, “The Ijaw nation has said it times without number that the South-South especially the Ijaw are not part of Biafra territory.”

Freed Chibok Girls Speak: Boko Haram Holding Many Other Girls, Sambisa Full Of Sorrow


The Chibok Secondary School girls, who were released by the Boko Haram insurgents in May 2017, have appealed to the Federal Government to devote attention to the release of other abducted non-schoolgirls who are still under the captivity of the dreaded terrorists.

The girls were released after the Federal Government’s successful negotiation with the notorious sect.

The girls, who spoke through their leader, Miss Hauwa Ntakai, made the call while speaking with journalists during a special luncheon organised by the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs and Social
Development in Abuja yesterday.

The Chibok schoolgirl noted that government was focusing more attention on the release of the abducted schoolgirls because they were captured inside their college.

She urged the government to also direct its attention to other girls in Boko Karam captivity because, according to her, “the Sambisa Forest is a place of sorrow.”

She said, “We have many of our sisters there that are not students of any school and nobody talks about them. It is because we were abducted from a school that government talked to Boko Haram and they released us. We thank them (government) very much, we appreciate them. May the Lord bless them for what they have done.

Anglican Church Stops Pastor’s Wedding Over Alleged Double Dating


The wedding between Rev. Elvis Opune of All Saints Anglican Cathedral Abakaliki, Ebonyi State and Grace Chika Olunze of Umuchoke Mbaitolu, Imo State was aborted by the authorities of the church over alleged double dating.

Opune, his bride, and guests had seated inside the church ultra-modern building at 9.30am for the wedding when one of the priests, Ven. Kingsley Okoro, came in to announce that the wedding will no longer hold and asked everyone in the church to leave.

Okoro, who said that the directive to stop the wedding came from ‘above’, did not, however, disclose
the reason for the cancellation of the wedding.

The cancellation shocked the parishioners, guests and priests inside the church as they came out and started discussing the matter in groups.

One of the parishioners, who simply gave her name as Helen, however, told Sunday Vanguard that Opune had been accused of dating a girl. The girl was said to have lodged a complaint on Friday night that the priest was dating her and dumped her after promising her marriage.

Meanwhile, a popular evangelist, who pleaded anonymity, said Opune and Grace should have wedded two years ago but could not because of undisclosed reason.

He noted that Grace, because of the matter, decided to quit the relationship but later reconciled with the pastor and they rescheduled their wedding for yesterday.

When contacted, Opune declined comments. Also, the bishop of the cathedral, Rt. Rev. Monday Nkwoagu, refused to give Vanguard reporter audience when he visited the Bishop’s Court for his reaction.

The guests, including a former Minister of State for Power and Steel, Chief Goddy Ogbaga, and the Deputy Chief of Staff, Government House, Abakaliki, Professor Fidelis Okpata, left the church after waiting for some time to know if the church will make a u-turn on the wedding.

The prospective couple had celebrated their traditional marriage last Wednesday at the bride’s home town in Imo State.

More Heartache For Mel B As Mom Is Barred From Travelling To US To Be Around Troubled Star


Mel B ’s mum was barred from flying to Los Angeles to be at the troubled star’s side. Andrea Brown wanted to support the former Spice Girl as she goes through her increasingly bitter divorce from hubby Stephen Belafonte .

But she said she was told the American ­embassy would not allow her to travel as her paperwork was invalid.

The blow came a week after she ­revealed she was thankful Mel was alive after “10 years of worry”.

Devastated Andrea tweeted: “Tears at what Melanie’s going through and the embassy wouldn’t let me fly out.”

She had earlier revealed the travel problem by saying: “Anyone going 2 USA 4 3month make sure it’s 90days I stayed 91 10yrs ago so my esta [electronic visa application] invalid.”

Her frustration came as Mel, 42, was pictured with daughter Phoenix Chi, 18, ­outside court on Friday as she sought a restraining ­order against her former nanny.

Mel’s lawyer has claimed Lorraine Gilles, 25, stole £230,858 from her and is “conspiring” with Belafonte, 42, by threatening to release sex tapes.

Gilles and her legal team have denied all allegations and claim she has just been caught in the middle of the celebrity couple’s acrimonious divorce. Mel’s legal team argued that “sexual and salacious” allegations from Gilles could be harmful to her younger daughters Madison, six, and Angel, 10, if such videos were broadcast on TV and the internet.

Trump Has Come So That America Can Be Humbled – Obasanjo


Americans are humans too like Africans in choosing Donald Trump as president, former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo said in a rare reflection that appeared to have mocked the US election last November.

‘‘The fact that America can produce a Trump in this day and age, it means Americans are as human as we are,’‘ he was quoted to have said.

The octogenarian who ruled Nigeria in 1976-79– first as a military ruler and then a civilian leader in
1999-2007 said he was happy about the turnout of events in the U.S.

‘‘I am not justifying what African leaders are doing. If our leaders are doing wrong, we should say that they are doing wrong.

Trump has come so that America can be humbled, and we can also learn that lesson,’‘ he added. Obasanjo’s comment was made during an event earlier this week at the French Embassy in Pretoria, the News24 portal reports.

The event in question was the launch of the French version of a book titled ‘Making Africa Work.’

The book described as ‘‘A trenchant analysis of the continent economic faultlines and a handbook of best practices to redress them,’‘ was authored by Greg Mills, Jeffrey Herbst, Olusegun Obasanjo and Dickie Davis.

According to him, even though Africa still needed foreign direct investment, it was time for the continent to show the rest of the world that it can take charge of its own future.

‘‘Nobody can do it for us, and it is all of us, and if we do it, we will get it right,’‘ he added.

Before the APC came to power in 2015, the current opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had ruled Nigeria since the country’s return to democratic rule in 1999.

The PDP’s first leader was Obasanjo, who had two four year terms. His plan to extend his stay in power was stiffly opposed and he eventually handed over to Umaru Musah Yar’Adua of the PDP.

Obasanjo is a regular election observer on the continent especially for the Commonwealth. Trump took office in january this year after winning hotly contested elections in November last year.

He beat former first lady and secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, to make it to the White House with his mantra to ‘Make America Great Again.’

Brain Damaged Victim Of OJ Simpson's Robbery Forgives Him, Offers To Pick Him From Jail


A brain-damaged victim of the OJ Simpson robbery has forgiven the disgraced ex-American football star – and says he will pick him up from jail when he walks free.

Bruce Fromong had a succession of heart attacks days after a gun raid by Simpson and pals.

But despite almost dying – and losing his millionaire lifestyle – Bruce ­sensationally backed OJ’s successful application for early release from prison .

Former actor Simpson, 70, will now be released after serving nine years of a 33-year sentence for
robbery and kidnap.

And sports memorabilia dealer Bruce, giving his first ever British interview exclusively to the Sunday Mirror, opened up about the infamous night and how he and “The Juice” are now reconciled.

He told them: “I could have died that night. They only needed to pull the trigger and I would have been dead. Just two days after the robbery, I had a severe heart attack. It was one of four I’d endure. I flatlined twice.

“I had three on the Monday alone after the robbery on a Thursday night.

“The second time they hooked me up to machines for two-and-a-half hours. I received some brain damage and it has been very difficult ever since.

"A lot of people don’t realise how this has affected me. It nearly killed me. I used to be a millionaire and now I’ve faced bankruptcy.

“While I was fighting for my life I was unable to run my business. We lost everything including our house in Oregon. Despite it all, I still forgive OJ. Some people think I’m crazy, but it is the way I have been brought up.”

OJ and two pals had ambushed Bruce – grabbing a £75,000 collection of sports memorabilia.

Simpson had signed countless shirts and American football helmets while in jail on remand for the murder in Los Angeles of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, 35, and her friend Ron Goldman, 26.

Simpson was acquitted in 1995 but later found ­responsible in a civil case. In 1997 he was ordered to pay $25million in damages.

It left father-of-five Simpson – who starred in the Naked Gun crime spoof movies – in financial ruin.

In 2007 he was goaded into snatching memorabilia being sold by Bruce and pal Alfred Beardsley, who has since died.

Convicted felon Tom Riccio convinced Simpson the stuff was his “deeply personal belongings”. Riccio set up a meeting in Room 1203 at the Palace Station casino hotel in Las Vegas on the pretence of buying the gear.

Bruce, 63, said: “It was just impersonal stuff signed by OJ, like balls, helmets, books and photos. Next thing I know these heavies are storming the room and OJ is the last in. BOOM! One hits me on the shoulder and I later needed surgery.

“Another one points the gun at my face and says ‘I will shoot you’. OJ said ‘put the gun down’. It was terrifying.”

The raiders took 500 items in a six-minute exchange secretly recorded by Riccio – who sold the footage for £100,000.

Bruce had collected the memorabilia as part of his and pal Mike Gilbert’s Locker 32 business, named after OJ’s shirt number while playing for the Buffalo Bills.

Bruce explained: “Signing was OJ’s regular business while held in Los Angeles County Jail on the Nicole charges. We did £2million in business in that 17 months.

I Wish I Learnt Something Else, Aside Being A SAN - Osinbajo


Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has said that he wished he learnt carpentry while he was growing up.

Osinbajo said this while advising school children on how to conduct themselves during holidays, especially long ones. He advised them to endeavour to, at least, learn a skill because it will help them much later in life.

According to him, “because it is a long holiday, it is a great time to do something new. Those who like to learn a skill, whatever skill that may be, I wish that when I was growing up, I learned even
carpentry.’’

He said school children on holiday can learn something new that would impact their lives and those of their communities in new fields of technology.

Femi Adesina Talks About What Will Happen When Buhari Finally Returns


Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina, said when his boss returns to the country, “filthy dreamers” will hide their heads in shame.

In a piece on Friday, Adesina described the filthy dreamers as those who “despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities”, noting that as the president’s spokesperson, he would never respond to such people.

“President Buhari has been indisposed since the beginning of the year. It is human, and presidents, despite their elevated status, remain human,” Adesina wrote.

“If there is anybody who considers himself 100 percent healthy, or who bears what William
Shakespeare calls ‘a charmed life’, let that person stand up to be identified. All mortals are doomed to sickness, they can recover, and they can die.

“That is the truth that has been internalised by millions of people praying for the recovery of our President. And that is where the shallowness, vacuousness, and hollowness of people who wish the President dead, and carry unfounded rumours, is on stark display.

“Filthy dreamers. They speak evil of dignities, and despise dominion. But we forgive them, for they know not what they do. When President Buhari returns (as God would make him do) where would they hide their faces? In shame.”

He compared the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to Shimei, a character in the Bible, going on to describe the party as “evil wishers” who spend “their days conjecturing tragedy for leadership”.

“David had succeeded Saul as king of Israel. And Shimei was from the family of Saul (read, People’s Democratic Party, PDP). Shimei hadn’t forgotten the bloody nose the family of Saul got, when the kingship was taken away from them, and given to David. So when the latter got into a time of travail, no pity at all from people still smarting from bloody noses,” Adesina said.

“The All Progressives Congress (APC), inspired by Muhammadu Buhari, halted the 60-year pipe dream of PDP at the polls in 2015. Has the latter forgotten? No, they won’t forget till forever.

“But so much is the animus, the antipathy towards the president that they wish him dead. While millions of Nigerians are praying, some elements are rejoicing, and imagining evil. But they forget: man is not God, and Jehovah always has the final say. The descendants of Shimei need to learn vital lessons from their forebear.

“President Buhari has tolerated people who have called him all sorts of names in the past two years. If he didn’t move against them directly, he could have allowed many Abishais to move against them, ‘and take off their heads.’

“But not our president, a reformed democrat, a pious man, who has resolved to leave the people suffused by hatred unto God”, Adesina concluded.

It is now getting to three months since President Buhari returned to London for medical follow-up. Amid the persistent and widespread clamour for transparency, many will wonder why Adesina, who has been part of the conspiracy of silence, will not simply respect the wishes of the people and the standards of openness and accountability, by providing accurate information on the true state of health of the president, for which he is receiving treatment funded by the people.

"She Aborted Our Baby!" – Vera Sidika’s Ex-Nigerian Lover Reveals Messy Details


Ex-boyfriend to Kenyan socialite, Vera Sidika, OriYomi Johnson has come forward to allege that the socialite aborted their baby leading to their messy breakup.

Recall that the Nigerian businessman based in Dubai had been all over the Kenyan socialite’s social media page until recently when she took to her social media page to confirm their breakup.

In a new interview granted, OriYomi Johnson opened up on the messy details surrounding his relationship with the Kenyan socialite.

Speaking on how he came about meeting Vera Sidika, the Nigerian businessman revealed that he met her after he requested for her professional escort services.

He further noted that they had on several occasions had unprotected sex.

OriYomi during the interview claimed the socialite got pregnant by him but aborted the fetus on grounds that she suffered miscarriage. 
Speaking to Heads Up as published by Ghafla, OriYomi said: “I met Vera for the first time in early September 2016. I contacted her about her services as an escort and she told me that she charges Kes 500,000. We spent five days together and later, we kept in touch.

 “We decided to start dating and things were all good until last November when I bumped into her phone only to find out she was chatting with clients from Nigeria and negotiating prices for her services. She also had pictures of herself with a Kenyan politician.

“Drama began in May when we had an argument and she went to Nigeria claiming she was going to abort my baby there. I begged her not to do it, but she went ahead. I was angry and I cut off communication with her. I was shocked when she later claimed she had suffered a miscarriage and that I beat her up. I know my truth and I have never laid my hands on Vera.”

Vera Sidika however denied the accusations stating that she never got pregnant for the Nigerian businessman based in Dubai. She further revealed that she is on a five-year birth control procedure which puts the doubts of pregnancy away.

She said: “My ex is obsessed with me and that is why he has not moved on. I have not aborted any child. I have an implant for five years, so I cannot get pregnant.”
