150 drowned, others shot dead while running ?from ?Boko Haram? in Yobe

At least 150 people drowned in a river while others were shot dead after Boko Harm men attacked Kukuwa-Gari village in Yobe state last Thursday August 13th.

The residents of the village were running from the sect members when they drowned in the river

“They opened fire instantly, which forced residents to flee. They shot a number of people. Unfortunately many residents who tried to flee plunged into the river which is full from the rain. Many drowned.

By our latest toll we have 150 people either (shot dead) or drowned in the attack. The gunmen deliberately killed a fisherman who tried to save drowning residents of the village.”Modu Balumi, a resident of the village told AFP.

News of the attack surfaced five days after because the telecommunications masts had been destroyed by the sect members.

23-year-old admission seeker commits suicide in Lagos

Welcome to Linda Ikeji’s Blog

On Sunday a 23-year-old, identified only as Ugochukwu, was found hanging in his apartment in Festac. It was gathered that on Sunday at about 12pm, Ugochukwu’s mother, identified only as Ngozi, and his two siblings came back from church to find him hanging in the sitting room, dead.

The family members were said to have raised the alarm which brought neighbours to the scene, as everyone was taken aback at the sight of Ugochukwu’s dangling body.
The 23-year-old reportedly used a rope to hang himself from a ceiling fan.
The matter was said to have been reported at the FESTAC Police Division, and the officers reportedly came to remove the corpse.
A police source said that Ugochukwu’s relations said the deceased did not give any clue as to why he committed suicide.
He said:

“Nobody can say why he committed suicide. But two Sundays ago, they caught him mixing cement to drink. The family members had actually gone to church, and he had stayed behind. It was a nieghbour who caught him and alerted the family members

“But all efforts made to find out from him, what went wrong reportedly proved abortive, as he refused to tell anyone anything, including his mother.

“This morning, the family members went to church again, and Ugochukwu decided to stay back. Nobody suspected anything. It was when the family members came back that they found his corpse.”

Another resident in the area, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the corpse had been taken to the mortuary by the police.
She said:

“Ugochukwu’s father’s whereabouts are unknown, but the boy has a younger brother and an elder sister.

“The corpse has been taken to the mortuary. Since he finished secondary school, he had not been able to secure admission. He took the UTME again this year.

“Everyone knows him as someone who did not talk too much. But no one knew exactly why he committed suicide. He was not working. He was usually at home. They were staying in a room and parlour. They are an average family.”

One of Ugochukwu’s neighbours, Oluja, said:

“I am shocked that Ugochukwu has passed on. I just returned from my church, only to learn that Ugochukwu was found hanging in his apartment.

“It was the policemen from FESTAC that took his body away. Everyone in the area is still in shock.

“I know that he had been worried about his admission to the university.

“He had tried several schools, but never made it. Also, he was having a financial problem. Maybe, it is the sum of these worries that made him commit suicide. He was a member of the Jehovah’s Witnesses.”

seemingly ended their feud in a lengthy Instagram comment on Aug. 12, even going so far as saying he’ll ‘take the blame’ for everything that went down.

meekAfter weeks of feuding, Meek Mill, 28, seems to have ended his beef with Drake, 28. In a rambling Instagram comment, Nicki Minaj’s fiancé doesn’t exactly take back anything that he’s said, but he does make it clear that he want’s the fighting to stop once and for all.

“We really only focusing on making it out that’s the only war we fighting…” he wrote. “I’m not entertaining no rap/real beef over drake s/o rapper! I can’t fall for the oldest trick in the book and I never shoulda entertained it bcuz it won’t bring me no money or success.. Ima take blame for it even tho “I can stand” anything I do or say and n***az know. Everybody know everybody watching and anything beyond what’s going on is stupid to b reacting on about a bunch of n***as just tryna get on and in the game..I been in these streets having money for a long time now “shining hard” and need had a problem with I came up from nothing and my name good.”

One thing Meek has made clear in his message — it’s ALL about the money. Throughout this whole back-and-forth, the public has mostly taken Drake’s side, so perhaps he realized having beef with one of the world’s most popular rappers wasn’t exactly working out too well for his career?

“I don’t feel like I gotta try to prove myself to the people and end up in a real situation over this fake rap s–t!” he added. “I’m just on some next level s–t wit it tryna touch some real paper… Leave all that murder one s–t in th streets if you tryna get rich and make it out! All this killer s–t on social media is like walking ya self into prison and that ain’t my lifestyle and don’t really make sense to me…. I’m getting way too much money to even process the thought of throwing it away about n***as talking about each other like girls they just was claiming they was cool with and at the end of the day they all just tryna get on! All I can say is do ya thing but n***as better smarten up!”


What a wicked mother.

Yvonne Adkins, 32, left her sickly 3-month-old baby, Chantelle lying in a baby rocker and went to indulge in a nine-hour sex romp with a man she met at a bus stop. She awoke the next morning to find her baby dead in her rocker with no blanket or bed clothes.

Adkins who pleaded guilty to child cruelty was given 18 months in prison, suspended for two years.

Judge David Fletcher who presided over the case said;

“Your desire to engage in some sexual activity with someone you hardly knew resulted in you leaving your child downstairs when you knew it was not appropriate to do that. You made a catastrophic decision that you will have to live with for the rest of your life.”


Pretty clear evidence Rihanna and Lewis Hamilton are a thing now — they popped up at the same NYC club together … fresh off their Barbados bump and grind session.

RiRi and the Formula 1 driver left 1OAK in NYC separately Tuesday night, but within minutes of each other — at 4:30 in the morning! But when the 2 international superstars got outside … someone else stole the spotlight.

Agagu Crash: Associated Airlines May Be Flying Without Insurance

Indications have emerged that aircraft in the
fleet of Associated Airlines may have been
flying without insurance cover since the
beginning of this year as its alleged insurer,
Nigeria Reinsurance Plc (Nigeria-Re), has denied
having any insurance contract with the airline.
Associated Airlines also named a second insurer
as Sema Insurance, but it has been gathered
that the insurance company is not registered by
the National Insurance Commission (NAICOM),
neither is registered by the Nigerian Council of
Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB) as an
insurance broking firm.
Nigeria-Re has denied the existence of any
insurance contract with the airline, saying such
claims were not only false but made by “people
who do not understand the way the insurance
industry is organised.”
The Managing Director of Nigeria-Re, Mrs.
Isioma Chukwu, told THISDAY that her
organisation was never at any time the official
insurer of Associated Airlines.
She explained that her organisation, being a
reinsurance company, do not transact any
business with the insureds or policyholders,
adding that reinsurance companies insures risks
taken by primary insurance companies and as
such could not have had any insurance
transaction with the airline.
The revelation came following the crash of one
of the airline’s aircraft conveying the corpse of
former Governor of Ondo State, Chief Olusegun
Agagu, and some of his family members
including government officials to Akure on
Thursday. 13 persons died in the crash which
occurred within the vicinity of the Murtala
Mohammed Airport Lagos minutes after take-
off. Six survivors still lie critically in the
If Associated Airline is not able to prove it has
insurance cover on its aircraft, the expected
insurance claims by surviving victims of the
crash and relatives of the deceased victims may
be in jeorpady.
The Chief Operating Officer of Associated
Airlines, Taiwo Raji, had said the aircraft was
insured by Sema Insurance in partnership with
Nigeria-Re. At another time, the company was
said to have been insured by Africa Reinsurance
Corporation (Africa-Re) and Sema Insurance.
Inconsistencies in the company’s statement
may mean there was actually no insurance
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a top
insurance broker, said Custodian and Allied
Insurance Plc, was the insurer of the airline but
had to stop at the beginning of this year
because the airline defaulted in the payment of
premium for the cover.

Liverpool Moves Into Top Spot of The Premier League Table

Liverpool began in fine style taking the lead just
13-minutes in when Luis Suarez managed to
sweep the ball home 12-yards despite being
surrounded by defenders.
Just moments later and Daniel Sturridge’s kept
up his brilliant start to the new season when
firing home after turning Damien Delaney
The third, just before the break, was somewhat
harsh on Palace as Dean Moxey was adjudged
to have pulled Raheem Sterling back just inside
the back and skipper Steven Gerrard made no
mistake to slot him his 99th Premier League
goal for Liverpool.
Palace did improve after the break and they
claimed a goal with 15-minutes left as Dwight
Gayle flicked home Jose Campana’s free-kick
from close-range – but it proved to be nothing
more than a consolation.
The win takes Liverpool above Arsenal into top
spot, whilst Palace remain second from bottom
after their sixth defeat of the season.

2 Feared Dead, 8 Injured In Delta Gas Pipeline Explosion

An NNPC gas pipeline, yesterday, exploded at
Okwokolo community, Mereje, Okpe Local
Government Area of Delta State, reportedly
killing two persons and injuring eight others.
Officials of the Petroleum and Pipelines
Marketing Company, PPMC, were battling to put
out the fire ignited by the explosion as at 6.30
pm, but they disputed the claim that two
persons died. They however confirmed that two
pick-up vans of the company were burnt in the
fire disaster.
A source said the explosion was caused by
pipeline vandals, but a villager said the pipeline
sparked fired as PPMC officials were effecting
repairs on a ruptured section.
The fire was said to have started at about 3.30
“They were roasted like chickens. I wonder what
they were doing near a gas pipeline. Our people
don’t learn from the mistake of others and what
they hear. As I speak with you, they are being
rushed to the hospital.
“I was on my way to Sapele when suddenly I
saw a thick smoke ahead of me and by the time
I got nearer, I saw that it was pipeline
explosion,” the source said.

Another crash survivor dies in Lagos

Efforts to save one of the six remaining
survivors of the Associated Airlines plane crash
in Lagos on Thursday didn’t pay off as he died
on Saturday.
The death toll from the plane crash now stands
at 15, with five survivors still battling for their
The plane which had 20 persons on board was
conveying the corpse of former Ondo State
governor Olusegun Agagu to Akure for burial
when it crashed few minutes after take-off in
Samson Hassan, had along with another
survivor, Taiwo Akintunde, been kept under
close watch at the highly sterilised Intensive
Care Unit of the Lagos State University Teaching
Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja. The efforts of the
medical personnel however proved unsuccessful
as Hassan gave up the ghost on Saturday.
Hassan’s death was confirmed in a release said
to have emanated from one Mrs Bolanle
Okusanya-Feyita, who spoke on behalf of the
Magbamawo Industrial Company (MIC) Royal
Ltd, where Hassan was a member of staff.
The Chief Executive Mr Olatunji Okusanya, his
son, Mr Olatunji Okusanya Jnr and four members

Samson, who was at the Recuperating Ward of
the Surgical Emergency ward was still stable,

Woman Tattooed Rapper Drake’s Name On Her Forehead So She Could Marry A Psychic

A true fan will go to extreme lengths to
prove their love for their favorite celebrity.
But while most of us settle for a copycat
hair cut or a cheap imitation dress, one
woman has gone the extra mile to show
rapper Drake how much he means to her-
by getting the hip hop star’s name
tattooed across her forehead.
The mystery woman, who has shaved
eyebrows and hair, adding to the dramatic
look, visited an LA based tattoo parlor to
make her bold statement. She was told by
a psychic that if she got the tattoo, Drake
would mysteriously marry her.
It is thought that the unknown fan may be
responding to a lyric in one of Drake’s
songs, Free Spirit, which instructs a lover
or listeners to, ‘tat my name on you so I
know its real’.
Photos of the bold new look found their
way onto the internet and have now gone
Even Toronto-based musician Drake-real
name Aubrey Graham- has seen the
photos, reacting in disbelief at the
permanent addition to the girl’s face.
The rapper told Mando Fresko that he
wants to meet her and ‘understand what
happened’. He said: ‘That’s cool. I feel you
100 %. That to me is absolutely incredible.
He added: ‘It was love.
The Canadian rapper then exploded in a
rant against the tattoo artist.
He said: ‘The guy who tatted it is a ****ing
***hole. You should lose your job and
never do tattoos again.’
He even threatened to ‘f*** [the tattoo
artist] up’
The musician appeared visibly upset by the
pictures. He added: ‘It’s crazy, it’s surreal-
I don’t even want to look at it anymore.’
Graham is said not to have any tattoos
Meanwhile Kevin Campbell, the tattoo
artist at LA parlor Will Rise, who is
responsible for the work, has spoken out
about his decision to go ahead.
He said ‘She was really psyched about it.
She had the sh—y font all picked out on
her iPhone ready to go and was pretty
adamant about putting it on her forehead.’
Campbell, who claims he asked the
woman three times if she was sure about
the inking, and explained possible future
consequences to her, told Vice magazine,
‘She acted as if she had planned it out for
a while; though I’m not really sure how
much extended coherent thought could
actually go into getting such a stupid
tattoo on your forehead.’

Popular comedian Bovi Ugboma and his beautiful wife Christabel welcomed a bouncing baby girl to their family last night September, 25th.

Bovi celebrated his birthday that same
yesterday and later in the day at about
8:47pm, he was given another reason to
The happy father took to twitter to
express his joy and announce the
arrival of his daughter.
The proud father shared a photo of him
is his hospital scrubs carrying his new
bundle of joy.
Bovi and his wife already have a son.
Big congrats to the couple!!!

six years old Boy Raises $400,000 For Sick Best Friend.

WHAT would you do if you found out
your best buddy had a rare disease?
What would you do if you were six years
old when you found this out?
Dylan Siegel’s response was nothing
short of incredible.
ABC News reports the young boy, now
seven, wrote a children’s book
entitledChocolate Bar , to raise money
for his sick friend, Jonah.
It initially sold 200 copies at his
school for $6000. But before long word
had spread. More books, even T-shirts,
bags and phone cases.
Now he’s raised $400,000 and has his
eye on seven figures.
Jonah contracted a rare liver disease
called glycogen storage disease. It
causes his blood sugar to drop
dramatically, and can be fatal.
Dr David Weinstein, who studies the
disease, is completely blown away.
“Boy, have I been shocked,” he told ABC
“He’s raised more money for this
disease than all the medical
foundations and all the grants
combined. Ever.”
Dylan’s father, who initially suggested
a lemonade stand to help raise money
but was quickly told, “don’t patronise
me”, says he’s learned more about
what’s possible from his son than from
anyone else.
“Kids can change the world just like
any of us,” he said.
“It’s been a blast. It validates a six-
year-old’s vision of what he thought
change could be.”


ATM theft: N6.8m was withdrawn from ATM of a bank.

The Police Command in the FCT have
begun investigation into the
alleged theft of N6.8 million from
the ATM of a bank at Jabi District,
Abuja, on Saturday.
DSP Altine Daniel, the command’s
spokesperson, who disclosed this on
Tuesday in an interview with the News
Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, said
that a suspect had been arrested in
connection with the theft.
He said that the 27-year-old suspect
(name withheld), allegedly broke into
the ATM belonging to one of the old
generation banks and stole the money.
Daniel, however, said that the amount
that was stolen was recovered “intact”
from the suspect after he was arrested
in the premises of the bank.
“On Sept. 21, at about 10 a.m.,
some staff of the bank came to
report at our office at Utako that
their ATM had problem.
“When our men moved to the scene
and started looking for clues and
anything that will assist them in
their investigation, they noticed
that the CCTV monitor room had been
tampered with.
“After a thorough search, they also
noticed that the door of the toilet
in the room was locked from within
and when they opened it, they found
somebody seated.
“The suspect was picked up and
taken to the station where he
confessed to the crime,” she said.
Daniel said the suspect claimed to have
learned the act of opening safe from
the “youtube” (Internet) and
thereafter, bought some tools,
including screw driver and pliers, to
carry out the act.
She alleged that the suspect removed
N6.87 million from the ATM and packed
them in bags before his arrest.
“Investigations into the case has
started and we are trying to find
out if he acted alone or he has
some accomplices,” she said.


Life On Earth Could End Within 1.75 Billion Years, Scientists Says

How much longer will the Earth be able
to sustain life? Assuming our little
blue marble isn’t done in by climate
change, an asteroid strike, or some
other cataclysm, the end could come
within 2 billion years.
Ths scientis says,“We estimate that Earth will cease to be habitable somewhere between 1.75 and
3.25 billion years from now,” Andrew
Rushby, a doctoral student at England’s
University of East Anglia and the lead
author of a new study, said in a
written statement. ”Of course,
conditions for humans and other complex
life will become impossible much sooner
— and this is being accelerated by
anthropogenic climate change.”

Lagosians spend N36billion annually on parties – Governor Fashola

Lagos state governor, Babatunde Raji
Fashola, this weekend revealed that more
than N36 billion is spent by Lagosians
annually to organise parties. The governor
said this at the 4th edition of the
Lagos Ignite Enterprise and Employability
project, a joint youth empowerment
programme between the government and the
Afterschool Graduate Development Centre,
Governor Fashola said:
“This was the study of night life
carried out by the government in five
local governments including Agege,
Mushin, Ifako-Ijaiye and Ikeja and
another local government. It showed
that more than N36 billion was spent
on 1555 parties held within the
period. We did a study between October
and November last year. We studied
from Thursday, Friday and Saturday
nights, three days every week for four
weeks which was 12 nights. In 12
nights, 1555 parties were held in
these local governments. In terms of
drinks, food and all other engagements
during such parties, about N1.2
billion was spent and when we dis-
aggregated them we saw how much went
to DJ, MC, food and drinks, the total
picture in the state now and I don’t
want to give you a wrong number but
it’s something in the region of about
N3 billion monthly on that side of our
life and people are playing and
impacting on that side of our economy.
The governor further stated that Aso Ebi
alone gulped a minimum of N1.2billion


Ibori Hid Assets in Oando – British Prosecutor


Convicted former Delta State Governor, Chief James Ibori, hid some of his assets in an indigenous integrated oil company, Oando Plc, according to a British prosecutor.

The prosecutor was quoted by Reuters in a report on Monday as saying that the former governor, who is serving a 13-year jail term in the United Kingdom for fraud and money-laundering, hid some of his assets in the oil firm; adding that money passed from Oando’s accounts into Ibori’s Swiss accounts.

Ibori had in February 2012 pleaded guilty to 10 counts of fraud and money-laundering worth £50m.

Prosecutor Sasha Wass was quoted as telling the court that she would be presenting evidence that Ibori had “asserted ownership of a large part” of Oando, Nigeria’s biggest home-grown oil firm, which is listed in Lagos, Johannesburg and Toronto.

“The Crown will assert that Oando is a company where James Ibori has hidden assets,” Wass said, giving no further details.

One of the biggest embezzlement cases seen in Britain, the successful prosecution of Ibori was also a rare example of a senior Nigerian politician being held to account for the corruption that blights Africa’s most populous country.

At the time of Ibori’s sentencing in April 2012, Judge Anthony Pitts said the £50m that he had admitted to stealing might be a “ludicrously low” fraction of his total booty, which could be more than £200m.

The confiscation hearing will shed further light on the scale of Ibori’s wealth and determine whether he emerges from jail impoverished or still in possession of a large enough fortune to regain a position of influence in Nigeria.

Ibori could be released as early as 2016 because he spent two years in custody before his sentencing and because he will be eligible for parole halfway through his prison term.

He was not in court on Monday and his lawyer, Ivan Krolick, said Ibori did not wish to attend the confiscation hearing although he would come to court to give evidence if necessary.

In May, the Court of Appeal had rejected Ibori’s appeal against the length of his sentence.

During his sentencing hearing, the court heard that Ibori had acquired six foreign properties worth £6.9m, a fleet of luxury cars including a Bentley and a Maybach 62, and that he had tried to buy a $20m private jet. His three daughters were attending a private school in rural England.

However, the Head, Corporate Communications, Oando Plc, Mr. Ainojie Irune, who spoke with our correspondent in Lagos, denied the report that the jailed ex-governor owned a larger part of the oil company.

He said, “We state categorically that Mr. James Ibori does not own ‘a large part of Oando’ and that this statement is incorrect and misleading. Oando is a publicly traded company listed on the Nigerian and Johannesburg Stock Exchanges and does not and cannot control the trading in its securities on the floor of the respective Exchanges.

“Based on our current shareholding register, Mr. James Ibori’s shareholding stands at 443 shares out of a total issued and paid up share capital of 6.8 billion ordinary shares, which is clearly insignificant, and cannot be considered as ‘a large part of Oando.’

“Oando also stated that it does accept that sometime in 2004, in the normal course of its business, it sold some of its foreign exchange earnings for naira and the recipient of the US dollars was a company, which has now turned out to be one controlled by James Ibori.

“At the time of the transaction, this information was unknown to Oando. The total amount was $2.7m made in three separate transactions over a period of about seven months. This amount was insignificant considering the company’s turnover of approximately $800m in 2004.”

ASUU Strike Responsible For Increase In Crime Rate – NANS

VCs Of Private Universities Urge NANS To Mediate Between FG And ASUU

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has linked the rising wave of crime in the last two months to the idleness of students, who are currently bearing the brunt of the impasse between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), following the strike embarked on by the union.

The students’ body, therefore, appealed to the striking union and the federal government to resume negotiations and ensure quick resolution of the strike, which is now in its 13th week.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja on Monday, acting Senate President of NANS, Mr. John Shima lamented that about three years of study time had been lost to strikes in the last 10 years.

The lost time, he said, was enough to graduate from an undergraduate course in other climes.

“ASUU and the federal government should go back to the negotiating table. Even after wars, issues are resolved at the round table, Nigerian students are tired of sitting at home,” he said.


Shima added that although the lecturers were protesting the decline of infrastructure in the nation’s universities, the decline was not limited to the universities alone. This, he said, had led to the continual drop in Nigeria’s standard of tertiary education.

“We call for a NEEDS Assessment in our polytechnics and Colleges of Education as was done for the universities to ascertain their level of decay. This may also stop unions in these institutions from embarking on their own strikes,” he said.

The students’ body also appealed to President Goodluck Jonathan to urgently appoint a substantive minister to head the education ministry.

The candidate, it added, should be an individual from the education sector, who had exhibited the necessary competence, clear understanding of the sector and has the capacity to command the respect of stakeholder unions in the sector.

“We commend the out-gone education minister, Prof. Ruqqayatu Rufa’i, for doing her best while she served as minister,” Shima said.

Robin Van Persie Says He Likes To Listen To P-Square’s Songs

It is amazing how foreigners enjoy listening to African songs, especially Nigerian songs. A couple of months ago, Man UTD star defender Rio Ferdinand tweeted how much he loved listening to Timaya’s bum-bum. Well, during a chat with football legend Paddy Creramd, Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie talked about playing for the English club, working with Sir Alex Ferguson and much more. When asked what he does off the pitch, like what kind of music he listens to, RVP said: “I like to listen to music. ..all sorts honestly. I can listen to dutch songs, English songs..whatever…if the tune is good I like it.” When asked who in particular he likes, he replied “Michael Jackson, Usher, P-Square…all sorts honestly”.

According to video footage of the incident, which was posted on Instagram, the 43-year-old rapper suggested the loss meant nothing to him and added: “Suck My D**k B***h.”

He later tweeted: “I just lost a million to @rickyrozay in the studio recording Big Homie.”

Gunmen kills 12 and injures 15 at Washinton Navy Yard.

ImageAaron Alexis (pictured right), opened fire and killed 12 people this morning Monday September 16th at the Washington Naval Yard in Washington DC before being shot and killed by responding officers. The 34-year-old who worked as a civilian I.T contractor at the military base, entered the complex’s cafeteria around 8.30am brandishing an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, shotgun and handgun and began shooting. It is thought that he used another employee of the base’s identification card to gain entry to the heavily secured Building 197, where he carried out his deadly attack. Aaron killed 12 people and injured at least 15, who are all in critical conditions.

Aaron, from Fort Worth Texas, served in the U.S. Navy for almost four years before being kicked out in January 2011 for ‘misconduct’. The motive for the killing has not been revealed though there are speculations that it could be connected to his dismissal from the U.S. Navy. RIP to those who lost their lives.

convenant university strict dress code, its 2013…

Covenant University, which is a private
Christian University owned by Living Faith
Church founded by Bishop David Oyedepo,
recently released their student handbook
(2013/2017) find it HERE. In it, the
school listed a number of clothing items
not allowed within the school premises.
They banned practically everything. Lol.
No jeans, no short skirts, no pencil
skirt, no sleeveless top, no high heels,
no body hugging top/dress, minimal make-
up, no face cap, no painting of nails
Some students of the university are said to be complaining about the strict dress code.


Aliko Dangote gets $3.3billion loan from 12 banks to build oil refinery

12 local and international banks have
loaned Africa’s richest man and foremost
industrialist Aliko Dangote $3.3 billion
to build Nigeria’s biggest petroleum
refinery and petrochemical/fertilizer
The banks are: Standard Chartered Nigeria,
Guaranty Trust Bank, Fidelity Bank,
Ecobank Nigeria, United Bank for Africa,
Access Bank, Zenith Bank, Standard Bank of
South Africa, Diamond Bank, First Bank
Nigeria, First City Monument Bank, and
FirstRand Bank.
Standard Chartered is the global co-
ordinator, while Guaranty Trust Bank is
the local co-ordinator.
According to a statement released by
Dangote Group a few days ago, the
factories they plan to build will create
about 9500 direct and 25 000 indirect
posts. These plants will cut the existing
volumes of refined fuel that are imported
by almost half which will end the
importation of fertilizer in Nigeria.
The company further stated that the 2.8
million tonnes of urea that will be made
at these factories will be directed into
developing the Nigerian agriculture
sector. Aliko Dangote said these factories
would showcase Africa as maker of refined
oil products and fertiliser.
“As a result, several African nations
will be less reliant on importing fuel
and fertilizer from foreign markets,
reducing the negative impact of
negotiating terms within increas


Rihanna spotted leaving A$AP Rocky’s hotel room the morning after

Rihanna has moved on to A$AP Rocky?
Thought he was seeing model, Chanel Iman?
Rihanna was caught making the walk of
shame leaving his hotel wearing the same
clothes from the night before…
From The Daily Mail
Most stars make an effort to recycle.
And Rihanna certainly seems keen to do
her bit – by recycling her clothes.
The 25-year-old was spotted leaving
the hotel of her rumoured new
boyfriend rapper A$AP Rocky in
Chelsea, New York on Thursday morning,
wearing the same pair of thigh-
skimming denim hot pants she had worn
the night before.
Looking cheery, Rihanna teamed the
Daisy Dukes with a floral bucket hat,
a long-sleeved black and white top and
simple black sandals as she made her
way to a photographic studio.
Rihanna really knows how to get her men. A
few months ago, Chris Brown tweeted “How
can she be mine when she’s everyone
else’s?”. Was rooting for Drake tho…


We will help the stowaway boy achieve his dreams: Edo state Govt.

The Government of Edo State has
expressed its readiness to ensure that
the stowaway teenager, Daniel Oikhena,
achieve his dreams by sponsoring the
boy’s education up to university level.
This is coming on the heels of a
similar gesture bestowed on the boy by
a group DeRaufs.
Speaking on the government’s plan, Edo
State Commissioner for Information and
Orientation, Mr Louise Odion, said that
Governor Adams Oshiomhole was
determined that ensure that Daniel gets
the best education.
Odion said: “Edo State Government is
already taking steps to ensure that
Daniel gets not just material but also
psychological support to enable him
achieve his God given potentials. As a
doting parent himself, Governor
Oshiomhole has followed the development
closely. As a matter of fact, he
personally engaged Daniel.
Meanwhile, the mother of the boy, Mrs
Evelyn is at war with the husband,
after she was accused of depriving the
husband, Osaigbovo access to members of
the public since the stowaway saga
started, but the family of the woman
described the attitude of the husband
as disappointing “because he decided to
appear now thinking that money is
involved but he abandoned the children
all these while, it is shameful.”
Odion regretted that the seeming crack
between the mother and the father
affected the upbringing of the boy.
“From his interaction with him and his
parents, who unfortunately are
separated, it is obvious that there is
a deficit in terms of parental care,
even though he sounds quite
intelligent. We will ensure that Daniel
benefits first of all from the
intervention of clinical psychologists.
His psyche needs to be weaned off
destructive anger,” Odion said.
“Thereafter, we will assist Daniel up
to university level consistent with the
philosophy of Oshiomhole that every Edo
child gets quality education that not
only addressed the cognitive, but also
the affective and psycho-motor domains
as well.”
