With Biafra, Igbo’ll remain in Nigeria, says Nnamdi Kanu

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, on Monday, said Igbo must not vacate the North, or any other part of the country, as a condition for the actualisation of the agitation for Biafra.
The IPOB leader spoke in an interview with some journalists in Enugu, where he received awards from a number of pan-Igbo groups, including the Igbo Women Assembly, the Eastern Consultative Assembly and the Igbo Students Union.

Reacting to the ‘quit notice’ issued to Igbo in the North by a coalition of Arewa youths, Kanu noted that secession from Nigeria did not imply that Igbo must leave the North, or other part of the country as suggested by the ultimatum issued by the northern youths.

He said, “You are aware that Scotland is seeking to leave the United Kingdom? Are you remotely implying that every person from Scotland, who lives in England, should now return to Scotland?

“Britain just left the EU. Are you now implying that every British citizen in the EU should come back to Britain in order to finalise that process of extraction of Britain from the EU?”

Kanu noted that what he described as “poor education” was responsible for the impression that Igbo must leave other parts of Nigeria in the event of the actualisation of Biafra.

The Biafran agitator added that he would not take issue with the Arewa youths, who he described as “inconsequential.”

Kanu, nonetheless, warned that Igbo, who resided in the North, were doing so at their own peril.

According to him, Igbo resident in the North are “sacrificial lambs” who could be killed at any moment.

Asked if Igbo in the North should ignore the notice to quit, the IPOB leader stated, “It is up to them. They have been in the North, and they (northerners) have been killing us (Igbo) since 1945.

“If you choose to live in the North, you choose to be a sacrificial lamb because one day, they will kill you. It is a choice they have made and they will have to live with it.”

Kanu insisted that the governorship poll in Anambra State, scheduled to hold on November 18, 2017, would not hold unless the Federal Government acceded to pro-Biafran agitators’ demand for a referendum.

Asked if he was not bothered that Ohanaeze Ndigbo had overruled his call for the boycott of the poll, Kanu said he was in charge of the people “100 per cent.”

He added, “No, I’m not (bothered) because the people are with us. We control the people 100 per cent and come Anambra, on the 18th of November, 2017, the whole world will be amazed.”

Although he said he was certain that the people of Anambra would boycott the election, Kanu said IPOB did not intend to stop anybody who decided to vote.

“We are entirely peaceful. We are not stopping anyone from voting. If you want to vote, you can go and vote. We are democrats,” he said.

Kanu added that the planned referendum would, once and for all, settle the debate between Biafra and restructuring.

The IPOB leader said, “We are calling for a referendum so that the people can actually decide, once and for all, what they want, for themselves; not anybody deciding for them.

“I have not argued Biafra from the standpoint of absolutism. I am not saying you must vote for Biafra. I am asking the powers that be in Nigeria to allow the people to determine for themselves.”

Reacting to his bail conditions, the IPOB leader said the court, which barred him from granting interviews, could not stop him from speaking.

He said, “I am not giving an interview, I am responding to the question you asked me. The judge is a very learned fellow. She cannot stop me from speaking.”

Earlier, Kanu had assured a delegation of the Igbo Women Assembly, led by Mrs. Maria Okwor, that the menace posed by Fulani herdsmen in parts of the South-East “would come to an end before the end of the year.”

He equally told members of the Igbo Students Union, who honoured him with the title of ‘Light of the People’, to join IPOB and propagate the struggle for Biafra on the social media.

Meanwhile, IPOB, on Monday, alleged that some top politicians were plotting to kill Kanu, its leader, and other principal officers of the group.

It said huge amount of money and political patronages had been offered to certain people to execute the plot.

In a statement by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB said any attack on Kanu would radicalise the Biafra struggle in a manner nobody could stop.

The group named certain governors, an elder statesman, a socio-cultural organisation, a security chief and a religious head as some of those masterminding the plot.

The statement added, “But we promise them that any attack on Nnamdi Kanu or assassination attempt will radicalise the struggle for Biafran independence to the point which no one can contain.

“We are reminding those evil plotters that if anything happens to our leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who has been using non-violent methods for Biafran liberation since the inception of IPOB, that they will experience what they have not seen before since the creation of the contraption called Nigeria by the British.”

Ronaldo Advises Neymar to Leave Barcelona

Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo, has reportedly told Brazilian playmaker, Neymar to leave rivals, Barcelona. 

According to Spanish publication, Diario Gol, Ronaldo also told the Brazilian to snub a move to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and instead wait for a transfer to Manchester United.

The Portugal captain believes that moving to PSG, would be a step down for Neymar and think the 25-year-old who he shares the same birthday with, can take his game to the next level in England.

On Saturday, Sky Sports claimed that Neymar has decided to leave the Camp Nou after becoming increasingly frustrated at “playing second fiddle” to Ronaldo’s ash rival, Lionel Messi.

The report however added that PSG remain the only club willing to meet the player’s €222m (£196m) release clause, with Chelsea and Manchester United unwilling to do so.

PDP governors, others to visit President Buhari

Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party are among six governors who are scheduled to leave Nigeria today to visit President Muhammadu Buhari in London, The PUNCH learnt in Abuja on Monday night.

It was gathered that the visit was being organised by the office of the National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Munguno (retd.).

It was not clear if the NSA was responsible for the governors who were picked for the trip.

Our correspondent learnt that the six governors were picked from the six geo-political zones of the country.

Listed among the six governors are Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom), Dave Umahi (Ebonyi), Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara), and Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo).

The four governors are from the South-South, South-East, North-West and South-West respectively.

Our correspondent could not verify the identities of the two other governors, who are expected to come from the North-East and North-Central.

A governor, who is not among those travelling to see Buhari, said those chosen for the journey were picked outside what he described as the Nigeria Governors’ Forum.

He added that he was surprised when he heard about the journey from one of his counterparts, stating that if the secretariat and the governors had been contacted, the governors would have picked at least one of the PDP governors that had been critical of the President.

He said, “Our colleagues are going to London to see the President.  But I’m not happy that someone like the Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, or his Rivers State counterpart, Mr. Nyesom Wike, is not on the delegation.

“Though there are PDP governors on the delegation, we know ourselves and also know those we know are truly part of the opposition and those close to the ruling All Progressives Congress.

“The governors had been directed to be at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, tomorrow (Tuesday). From there, they will fly to the United Kingdom.”

The governors are expected to have lunch with the President before returning to the country on Wednesday.

A governor, who spoke on condition of anonymity with The PUNCH on Monday night, confirmed that some governors mooted the idea, but said he would not want to speak on the planned visit.

“Yes, they mentioned it (visit); some APC governors mooted the idea but I don’t want to say anything on that for now,” the governor stated.

Buhari, who is currently receiving medical treatment in London, the United Kingdom, had, on Sunday, hosted the APC’s National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, and four state governors inside the Abuja House in the British capital.

The release of the photograph of the meeting, the first of such since the President left the country on May 7, raised hope that Buhari might soon return to the country.

No date yet for Buhari’s return

Meanwhile, despite the meeting he held with some APC state governors on Sunday, no date has been fixed for Buhari’s return to the country, The PUNCH learnt on Monday.

But investigations by one of our correspondents showed that no date had yet been fixed for the President’s return.

Sources, who spoke with one of our correspondents, said although the President’s health had improved tremendously, his return date was still in the hands of his doctors.

“The President made it clear in his letter to the National Assembly that the duration of his stay in London would be determined by his doctor. That has not changed. He must get a clean bill of health before he returns,” one of the sources said.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, confirmed this in an interview with The PUNCH.

When asked to say specifically when Buhari was due back in the country in view of the latest development, Adesina said, “I am not a doctor and even if I am, it is clear that I am not part of the team that is attending to the President.

“His date of return will be decided by that medical team.”

Adesina also confirmed to one of our correspondents that the Sunday meeting was just one among other meetings Buhari would have with individuals before returning to the country.

He said, “More meetings are coming; there will be broader ones. That Sunday meeting was just the beginning.”

The presidential spokesman added that the Presidency was not in any way disturbed by the two cases instituted in court seeking to compel the Federal Executive Council to declare Buhari incapacitated and asking Senate President Bukola Saraki to constitute a medical panel on Buhari’s health condition.

“We are in a democracy; it is their (plaintiffs’) right. The court will determine the case on its merit,” Adesina said.

Obasanjo urged to find young leaders for Nigeria

A former president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Dr. Olisa Agbakoba (SAN), has urged former President Olusegun Obasanjo to lead a search for “young and vibrant political leaders” to run the country.
Agbakoba lamented that there was no culture among the political elite to encourage inspired young people to run for political leadership, especially the presidency.

In a July 20, 2017 letter to the former President, Agbakoba said the country was held back by an aged political class.

He said: “Our country is held back by a crop of leadership that has outlived usefulness and effectiveness as a result of old age.

“It beggars belief that there is no culture among our political elite, to encourage younger people with new ideas to aspire to positions of leadership, in particular the office of the President.”

Agbakoba noted that the modern history of Nigeria was shaped by young people.

He added: “Your Excellency was 39 years when you became Head of State. Nnamdi Azikiwe was 40 when he founded the National Council of Nigeria and the Cameroons (NCNC). Obafemi Awolowo was 43 when he became Premier of Western Region. Ahmadu Bello was 40 when he co-founded the NPC. Odumegwu Ojukwu and Yakubu Gowon were in their 30s when they took centre stage in Nigerian politics.

“It seems to me a great contradiction that after a young vibrant set of leaders got Nigeria off the ground in the early 60’s, Nigeria has steadily descended into chaos and is probably now ranked as one of the most ungovernable countries in the world.

“I feel compelled to request your intervention because you are one of few past leaders with enough clout to galvanize the political elite to produce like in France, a Macron or in Canada, a Trudeau.”

He suggested that the time had come for a generational change in national political leadership.

“I believe it is time for our elder statesmen to give way to a young new vibrant political leadership.

“I am also convinced that with your support this can be achieved and expanded to become high policy amongst all political parties in Nigeria. Nigeria will greatly benefit.

“I strongly feel that a radical change in political leadership from old to new will be transformational,” the former NBA president concluded.

A 'demonic' baby goat born with human-like facial features in Argentina has shocked locals and caused quite stir after photos of the animal went viral, Dailymail has reported.

The shocking features leaves the goat with disturbing protruding eyes and a flat face in San Luis province in central Argentina this week. The animal only survived three hours before it died.

The kid - one of three born to Oveido's goat - was found in the family's field soon after birth.
'As soon as I saw it, I realized the deformation. She had her eyes raised but the rest of her body was normal,' Oveido told local news outlet El Chorrillero.

She said the kid only survived a few hours after its birth.

Father Of 100 Children Says He Wants More Children

As the entire world mark the World Population Day, one man in Ghana has 100 reasons to mark his particular contribution as he makes new revelations on his life.

Tuesday, July 11, was World Population Day, and one man in Ghana, 80-year-old Kofi Asilenu, who is the father of 100 children by 12 wives, has reasons to mark his particular contribution.
Kofi lives with his family in a village called Amankrom, a 45-minute drive from the capital Accra. His family make up a third of the 600 people in the village.

While speaking exclusively to a BBC Africa correspondent, he said that he wanted a big family because he did not have siblings:

“I don’t have any brother or uncle, that’s why I decided to have many children so that they can give me a befitting burial when I die. In my home town if you give birth to one child they will say you are important so I want to have many children.”

His big family has, however, come at a cost. He says that he was well off financially, but his resources have mostly been drained due to the cost of raising such a large brood, even though he says now he gets financial help from his children.

Kofi Asilenu looks physically strong and even says he is willing to have more children – despite having mistakenly proposed to one of his daughters three years ago.

The embarrassing incident meant he was forced to apologise to her, explaining that he had an eye problem so he could not recognise her.

As for his wives, they are all happy with the set up.
First wife Nayome Asilenu told the BBC: “When I married my husband and he decided to marry more women, I didn’t have any option. He’s able to take care of us, pay the children’s school fees. They are healthy and strong so there’s nothing wrong with that.”
Polygamy was preferred in Ghana, to have many children was seen as a symbol of wealth. However, things have changed with women having more control on deciding how many children they can have and also birth control measures have been promoted nationwide.

See the 10-year-old Obese Boy Who is Addicted to Eating Toilet Paper and Cannot Stop it (See Photos)

The mother of a little boy has begged for help following a rare genetic disorder that forces her son to eat toilet paper.
A 10-year-old boy who is constantly hungry due to a rare condition eats rolls of toilet paper if he is unable to get any other food, Dailymail has reported.

The boy identified as Caden Benjamin, from Standerton in South Africa, weighs 14 stone 2lbs (90 kilogrammes) because of his constant overeating.

Now, he has been diagnosed with genetic disorder called Prader-Willi syndrome, which is characterised by an obsessive compulsion to eat. His mother Zola Benjamin says it means Caden will eat anything he can get his hands on.

'At one point, Caden was eating toilet paper. He'd eat rolls of it,' she said.

'Actually, he'd eat any paper he would find in the house. If there's nothing for him to eat, he'll scrape together the dirt he finds on the floor and eat that.'

Several years ago, he was forced to undergo a tracheotomy and he now breathes through a tube inserted into his windpipe.

Prader-Willi syndrome is a rare, incurable disorder that affects thousands of people worldwide, resulting in physical, mental and behavioural problems.

The condition is made worse by the fact that people need less food than their peers because their bodies have less muscle and tend to burn fewer calories.

Ms Benjamin added: 'At three years old he was 40 kg (6 stone 4 lbs) and at that time, we didn't know what was wrong with him.
'We went to a number of doctors and no one could tell us what was wrong and why he was gaining so much weight.'

Eventually, a doctor at the Steve Biko Academic Hospital in Pretoria ran further tests and diagnosed Caden's illness.
Now, Caden struggles to move around and even breathe because he is so overweight.

He also suffers bouts of depression because he is unable to live like a normal child.

'Sometimes he'll just break down in tears and tells me he wants to go and play with the other children outside,' said Ms Benjamin.

'But he is unable to do that and there's no way I can help him.'

Sule Lamido Explains Reason Why Nigerian Politicians Don’t Mind Being Jailed

“As a father in Jigawa, sending me to Kiyawa prison by present governor Badaru is an insult to all Jigawa people, and I am assuring you that, the governor must regret taking this action, and to me as politician jail is nothing but rather just a fashion.

” Former Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido, said on Thursday at a meeting of members of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, held at the party secretariat in Dutse, the Jigawa State capital.

Recall that in May, 2017, a Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Dutse, ordered Lamido’s remand when he was brought before it by the state government over alleged public disturbance.

Before he was charged to court, the former governor was arrested and was in police custody in neighbouring Kano State.

Pathetic Story of Three Children Whose Mother Murdered Their Father (Must Read)

Here's the pathetic story of how a tragic incident has put some children in a pathetic condition of having to fend for themselves while their mother is now languishing in custody at Ilesa Prison in Osun State.

For the three children of the late Alhaji Hakeem Salaudeen, life suddenly turned upside down recently, when their mother, 39-year-old Omotayo allegedly connived with an ex-convict, Oladapo Dolapo, to murder him.

Expectedly the tragic incident has put the children in a pathetic condition of having to fend for themselves while their mother is now gnashing her teeth in regret in custody at Ilesa Prison, where she was remanded by the court following her arraignment by the Osun State Police Command.

The children, Barakat, 17, Uthman, 15 and 12-year-old Fatima, despite urgings by members of the extended family, have elected to continue residing in their parents’ home, to keep it warm and open, as it were, rather than relocate to the family house in the Agowande area of Osogbo. Since the gruesome murder of their father, they have been living alone in the big apartment located on the sleepy street.

One of the children, Uthman and the elder sister, Barakat, told Sunday Sun they preferred to live in the house alone located in a suburb of Osogbo, the capital city of Osun State.

“We can only go out when we want to visit our grandma,” they said together. The grandmother he referred to is the 95-year-old mother of their late dad, and who is fondly called Alhaja Mosobalaje.

Prodded to explain how they have been coping, especially with respect to food, Barakat said: “We still have foodstuff in the house. The foodstuff that mummy bought is still remaining. That is what we are eating now.”

But how will they survive if the food finishes, Sunday Sun sought to know, and she said: “We don’t know. That is why we want the law enforcement agents to forgive our mummy so that she can come back home and take care of us. Family members alone can’t do everything for us.”

At this point, the three children could no longer hold back tears and they began to sob, wondering what would become of the beautiful plans their father laid for them.

Barakat, who just finished from Delightsome Group of Schools, wants to study at the Obafemi Awolowo University to become an accountant. Her brother, Uthman wants to go to the Nigeria Defence Academy (NDA) and become a soldier. But the youngest, Fatima wants to study Theatre Arts and become an actress.

Uthman and Fatima will be in SSS III and JSS III respectively in the same school as from next session.

Meanwhile, more details have emerged on how the tragedy that befell them, when residents of the sleepy area woke up and heard the shocking news that one of their neighbours had been hacked to death by an unknown assailant the previous night.

Sunday Sun gathered that Salaudeen, who was in his 40s, was gruesomely murdered in his house about 3.00 am by his wife who hired an ex-convict, Oladapo Dolapo. The ex-convict is alleged to have stabbed Salaudeen in the stomach with a knife as his wife choked him with a pillow.

At the headquarters of the Osun Police Command, where she was paraded along with her accomplice, Omotayo confessed that she and Dolapo connived to commit the crime.

“I choked him with a pillow, after having s*x with him and Dolapo stabbed him to death with a knife. I never thought it would turn out this way. I hired Oladapo Dolapo to help me kill my husband.”

Dolapo, 24, admitted that the woman contracted him to kill the man after promising to give him whatever he wanted if the operation was successful. He disclosed that the deceased’s wife, promised him a befitting accommodation and other largesse.

While parading the suspect, the Commissioner of Police, Olafimihan Adeoye disclosed that Mr. Salaudeen Adesina Jimoh of 3, Engineer Adesina Salawu Street, Osogbo, reported the case at the station on May 12, 2017. He said that on the fateful day about 3:00 am, two unknown men entered his brother’s house, stabbed him to death with knife but nothing was carted away.

Adeoye further explained that a team of police detectives and patrol men went to the scene, where the following inscriptions were found on the wall of the deceased’s house: “No Price, No Pay,”  “Aye Axe” and “Forgiveness is a sin.”

The CP said investigation by the police revealed that Omotayo did not only hire Dolapo but actively participated in killing her husband.

The police later arraigned the suspects in court, from where they were remanded at Ilesa Prison.

In an interaction with Sunday Sun, Omotayo said she had lost interest in her marriage, though she confessed that her husband was a good person who always took care of her needs and the needs of her children.

“We’ve been married for 17 years. We are blessed with three children aged 17, 15 and 12. He did not offend me. I was just mad at him,” she said.

Sunday Sun’s investigations indicated that Omotayo and her accomplice after murdering the man, made it look like armed robbers killed him.

A family source said that Dolapo, who made open confessions to the family members at the police station, before he was paraded alongside Omotayo, said that after he had agreed with the woman to carry out the dastardly assignment, she smuggled him into the house around 6.00 pm when the deceased had not come home and hid him inside a small shack made of woods at the back of the house. He remained there until the husband came home in the night.

He disclosed that when the man got home, his wife received him warmly and served him dinner. When the man was eating, the woman went out of the sitting room and met the assailant where he was hiding and told him that her husband had arrived and was eating his dinner in the sitting room.

Before then, when the eldest child, Barakat, noticed that her father had come back and wanted to greet him and also ask him to take her to a JAMB examination centre the following morning, her mother chased her back into the children’s room. She also asked all the children to go and sleep and warned them not to disturb their father.

It was at that point that she then took Dolapo into one of the rooms while the three children were in their room. When she got back to the room, she lured the husband to their room after he had had his dinner. She began to caress him and they eventually had sexual intercourse.

After the session, she left her husband in bed and went out naked, pretending to go and have a shower in the bathroom. Instead she went to meet Dolapo, where he was hiding in one of the rooms and told him that her husband would soon fall asleep so that they could execute their plan.

When she returned to the room again, she joined her husband in bed until she noticed that he had fallen asleep. That was between 2.00 am and 3.00 am. She then sneaked out quietly and led the assailant into the bedroom where the man was sleeping.

Once back in the room, she slammed a pillow on his face trying to choke him, while Dolapo attacked him with a knife and killed him.

To cover up the crime, they made inscriptions on the wall of the house to indicate that the deceased was a member of a cult group, whose members must have come to kill him. The inscriptions read thus: “No price, no pay,” “Aye axe,” and “Forgiveness is a sin.”

She collected the deceased’s phone which was left on a stool, went to the children’s room and also took their only phone, removed other items and gave to the assailant to take away, to make it look like the robbers who killed her husband made away with the items.

Sunday Sun gathered that she asked Dolapo to remove his shirt and hang it on top of the fence as evidence that it was left there by one of the robbers who was trying to escape.

For Dolapo to be able to escape, the woman gave her late husband’s jalabia dress to him to wear, to impersonate him in case he was confronted by vigilantes, who knew the husband often wore the jalabia in the neighbourhood.

Then she opened the gate quietly, to let out Dolapo, but he was noticed by some vigilantes, who truly mistook him for the deceased because of the jalabia he wore.

Sunday Sun gathered that the assailant sold the deceased’s phone to a friend. When the crime was reported, MTN was contacted and the police tracked down the buyer.

It was the buyer who helped the police to trace the assailant and he was later identified as an ex-convict.

When he was paraded by the police, Dolapo said he used to shuttle between Lagos and Osogbo “to do runs.” According to him, whenever he was broke, he would go to Lagos to do ‘runs’ and if he made good money, he would come and spend it in Osogbo.

He disclosed further that it was during his stay in Osogbo that the woman got in touch with him and they struck the deal that led to the killing of Alhaji Salaudeen.

The deceased’s younger brother, Adetunji Idris Babatunde, who spoke with Sunday Sun, said that his late brother told him two weeks before he was killed that he suspected that his wife was planning to kill him.

But when he asked if he had any serious contention with her, the deceased said there was no serious issue between them; but he was just having a feeling that the woman would kill him one day.

On the character of the deceased, Babatunde said: “He was a responsible man to the core. He was a businessman and very responsible and committed to his family. He didn’t live a wayward life. He even bought a car for the wife. I never met them quarrelling any day. Whenever I visited them, I always noticed that they loved each other.”

Asked what he could suspect as being responsible for the sudden change in the couple’s relationship, Babatunde said it could be due to his late brother’s decision to marry the second wife.

According to him, the second wife identified as Tawakalitu who lives in a different house and Omotayo often had quarrels.

Uthman also confirmed that his late father was a nice and responsible family man who loved his family dearly. His parents were very close and loved each other very well. He added that they used to go out together in his father’s car and also shared the same bedroom.

But did the mother ever complain about his late father’s attitude or character in the presence of the children? Uthman said: “Mummy used to complain sometimes that daddy’s behaviour towards her had changed since he married the second wife. She used to complain that daddy was not giving her attention like before and was not providing all her needs as he used to do.”

“Mummy was always disturbing daddy to look for a job for her or open a big shop for her but he did not do that. So, mummy was always complaining that she was not satisfied with the small shop she had. Since then, they would quarrel from time to time. But it was not serious.”

Anambra election: Nigeria must be restructured before October 1 – Nnamdi Kanu

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on Monday said only restructuring of Nigeria between now and October 1, 2017 would guarantee the holding of November governorship election in Anambra State.

DAILY POST reports that Kanu spoke in Enugu at a brief event where he received awards from three Igbo groups, including the Eastern Consultative Assembly and the Igbo Students’ Association.

The IPOB leader, who was confronted by journalists over the reaction generated so far by his call for election boycott, boasted that unless the Federal Government restructures the country before October 2017, the world would be shocked with the fate that would befall the scheduled Anambra election.

He said, “There will be no election in Anambra State come November 2017 and going forward there won’t be any election until they give me date for a referendum.

“They know what to do; convene a meeting, I will send my rep, give us a date for referendum, that is the only way.

“In which part of this earth have you ever found a measure of self-determination to be equated to war except in Nigeria because the political leaders do not understand the difference between self determination and war?

“Self-determination does not mean hate speech; the status quo can no longer remain. Like my brother Evangelist Eliot Ugochukwu-Uko said, if on or before October 1 nothing happens in terms of substantial restructuring, then there won’t be any election; the people will support us.”

On oppositions to his call by the Ohanaeze Ndigbo and other Igbo leaders, Kanu said their stand makes no stand because “the people are with us; we have their support 100 percent and come Anambra, on the 18th of November 2017, the world will be amazed.

Earlier in a presentation termed “Enugu Declaration”, different Igbo groups at the event called on the government not to make further delay towards restructuring the country.

The declaration was signed by Dr Alfred Udokwu; South East Elders Union; Rev Fr John Odey, Eastern Consultative Assembly; Bishop Mike Ibenene, South East Christian Network; Chief (Mrs) Maria Okwor:Igbo Women Assembly; Evangelist Elliot Ugochukwu-Uko, Igbo Youth Movement, among others.

They noted that “the struggle by a tiny clique to sustain by all means, the status quo imposed on Nigeria by unelected soldiers, by issuing threats of war in the false hope that the 196 million Nigerians held down in unacceptable squallor, fear, helplessness and arrested development will be cowed by this threats of military action and therefore back down from the noble struggle to save Nigeria, through a peaceful restructuring is provocative and offensive.

“Their arrogance, and ruthlessness has no place in the 21st century. It can only lead to the death of Nigeria.

“Nigeria must be restructured if Nigeria is to survive, and egalitarianism, equity and merit-based system enthroned. Fiscal federalism and regional autonomy established through a new constitution affirmed at a referendum. This is the irreducible minimum.

“Those struggling to resist this desirable change that will save Nigeria, and grant every zone a sense of belonging, are hereby declared ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE.

“Accordingly, we the oppressed masses of Eastern Nigeria, conscious of the fate of our children, reject in totality, the quite offensive arrogance of the opposers to restructuring, and hereby declare that we will not participate further in any elections whatsoever until Nigeria is restructured to true fiscal federalism anchored on regional autonomy.

“We restate that if genuine processes towards restructuring Nigeria are not embarked upon by the federal government on or before the 1st of October 2017, our people will find it extremely difficult to continue to participate in the Nigerian project.

The division in the land, the hate in the system and the apprehension in the air, all, confirm the urgency for a re engineering and reconstruction of the nation, we aver, that those who disagree, are not only enemies of the country, but also agents of destabilisation.

“That we affirm, with every sense of responsibility, that continuing to vote in elections in this dysfunctional land will be deepening the hole the country has fallen into. Moreover, we do not wish to enslave our children to a life of second class status.

“We will no longer vote in any elections whatsoever, until Nigeria is restructured. This is the demand, desire and decision of the masses of Eastern Nigeria.

“We, therefore, conclude, that apart from the political class and their structure (oti mpku),and the elite club who live in comfort zones, 99% of our people do not see any benefits of electing leaders the structure makes it impossible to hold accountable.

“The imposed unitary structure simply makes it impossible for the hapless electorate to choose their own leaders. Restructure now, or count us out of your elections.”

Cucumber Scandal: Chidinma Okeke Speaks About The Leaked Tape And How It Has Change Her Life

Chidinma Okeke who came into limelight in October 2015 when she won the Miss Anambra beauty pageant, has opened up on her lesbian s*xtape scandal, new music, and many more.
While speaking in an exclusive interview with Entertainment News on Channels Television, the controversial Miss Anambra 2015, Chidinma Okeke, who made major headlines few months ago after her viral lesbian s*xtape was leaked online, opened up on how being a beauty queen changed her life.

Chidinma who was just another regular girl with big dreams until October 2015 when she won the Miss Anambra beauty pageant and crossed into the limelight, said she experienced life from a new perspective under the pressure of being crowned a beauty queen.

She said; “It changed me a lot in every area of my life, I became up and doing before the all contest I just loved being in my own shell but throughout my year as a beauty queen I had to learn how to work hard to get to where I want to be, I learned the world is not a bed of roses and that if you want to make an impact you have to work hard.”

During her reign as a beauty queen Chidinma combined her schooling with realising the role of Miss Anambra, she organised a couple of charity events while she was a student. “It was not easy at all but with the help of my friends I was able to combine the two,” she said.

Towards the end of her reign as a queen, the unimaginable happened when a purported s*x tape she had participated in was released and she became a subject of heavy criticism forcing the pageant organisers to declare her dethroned.

However, she put the incident behind her and continued to forge a career for herself in entertainment with the release of her debut track titled ‘Friends’.

“I was able to heal with the help of God and my family. I talked to myself because I know I had so much to give out there. I was surrounded with people that were encouraging me to move on with what I wanted to do and not give up on my dreams and I took their advice. Now I am a stronger and better person.”

Speaking of the inspiration of her music single ‘Friends’ she said “The song ‘friends’ is generally about friends and it is passing across a message to people out there to be careful of people they call friends because not everybody is happy that you are going up there.

“What inspired the song was after the whole crisis, the incident was centralised on friends so I thought to do music about the whole stuff(incident) and that is how friends came about.”

She also attributed the track to life’s experience which she has passed through, comprising of betrayal and bad company.

”Where I am now, I live my life and I have actually healed but I am still having trust issues anyway but whatever you are going through in life just look on the bright side because in every storm there is always hope.

“It is in our stormy periods God intervenes and opens doors for us so never lose hope and never give up on yourself.“

Biafra: IPOB publishes names of those allegedly plotting to kill Nnamdi Kanu (See list)

The Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) has raised the alarm over a fresh plot to kill its leader, Mr Nnamdi Kanu by some retired and serving service chiefs, politicians from Igboland and some from the north.
IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu
A press statement made available to DAILY POST correspondent in Awka and signed by the IPOB Publicity Secretary, Mr Emma Powerful, stated that Kanu has recently been receiving threats to his life from known individuals and groups over his utterances.

The group said it is worried over the constant threats to the life of its leader, whose only sin they said was his constant attempt to liberate both Christians and Igbo indigenes in Nigeria from the plans by some elements in the north to annihilate them.

Powerful in the press release listed some of those who have at one time or the other openly threatened to kill its leader, saying that others who were nursing secret plots to do so have also been uncovered by the security arm of the group.

1. Former Chief Security officer to Abacha,
2. Major Hamza Al Mustapha,
3. IGP, Ibrahim Idris,
4. Chief of Army Staff, Major General Tukur Buratai,
5. Former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo,
6. Former Lagos State Police commissioner,
7. Alhaji Abubakar Tsav,
8. Former governor, Yerima Shetima were among those listed to be threatening the life of Kanu.

Below are other list:
Others listed from the south east who were also conniving to eliminate Kanu are; Ohaneze Ndigbo led by Chief Nnia Nwodo, Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra State, Gov, Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, Gov. David Nwaze Umahi of Ebonyi State, Methodist Prelate, Samuel Uche.

It said, “We understand that Federal Government of Nigeria mapped out huge amount of money and political positions for them to carry out the heinous crime against Kanu. We promise them that any attack on Nnamdi Kanu or assassination attempt will radicalize the struggle for Biafra independence to the point which no one can curtail the radicalism for Biafra independence anymore.

“IPOB members cannot stop half way because the struggle for Biafra quest for freedom is at the point of no return, therefore Government of Nigeria should fix a date for referendum where people will decide through their votes, whether to leave Nigeria or stay in Nigeria,” he said.

A South African woman got into a fierce fight when she asked her new lover to pay R1 500 rent for her.

According to Daily Sun SA, the woman ended up being allegedly killed by the man earlier this month!

Her body was found with three gunshot wounds in the face in Tladi, Soweto.

It’s believed she was shot by her new lover, who lured her to a quiet spot by promising to pay her rent.

Cops bust the suspect on Friday. He allegedly confessed to the murder and said he had met the woman at a funeral.

He said the woman had asked for rent money, which he told her he would get at his place later.

The suspect reportedly said the woman told him she had dropped off her other boyfriend at a relative’s house, and would pick him up later.

The suspect apparently said he shot the victim in the face three times, dumped her body in the veld, and sold her VW Polo.

The cops found the suspect after following leads which they found in the woman’s handbag.

They were led to a house, where they found another woman wearing her flip flops!

The murder weapon was sold to a person in Cosmo City.

The suspect was expected to appear in court soon.

Pedro suffered multiple fractures on his face – Conte

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, said on Monday that forward – Pedro sustained “multiple fractures” to his face after colliding with Arsenal goalkeeper, Ospina.
The Spanish International was taken to hospital after Ospina flew into him while clearing a ball with two fists during the Blues’ 3-0 pre-season win over their London rivals in Beijing on Saturday.

The 29-year-old Pedro spent the night in a Beijing hospital and returned to London the following day.

Conte revealed this while speaking to media in Singapore ahead of a friendly with Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

“The situation was more serious because I hoped that it would only be a concussion.

“Instead he had multiple fractures and I think with a mask in 10 days, he could come back to work for us.”

Conte said there was no ill-feeling towards Ospina.

“Absolutely no, because I was a player, I know these accidental (challenges) could happen,” He added, “Ospina tried to take the ball.”

Ahead of the clash with Bayern, the Italian confirmed that new signing, Alvaro Morata is in line to make his first appearance for the Premier League champions.

“In my plan it is to give him the possibility to play a part of the game against Munich for sure,” said Conte.

2Face Is A Thief And Must Be Arrested By The FG - Blackface Bursts Out

Former Plantashun Boiz member, Blackface is not relenting on seeking justice against bandmate 2Face for allegedly stealing the hit song African Queen.

He made his grouse known during a recent interview with HipTv

The Singer who has continually faulted 2Face for not acknowledging nor rewarding him for his role in writing African Queen, has said that he is not willing to let go of the accusations. He insisted that 2Face must make necessary corrections or be ready to suffer the consequences.

He also stated that the Federal Government is yet to institute an appropriate punishment for individuals who are involved in song theft.

“Had the Federal Government introduced an appropriate punishment for stealing other people’s songs, many music artistes would be in trouble today. If the penalty required offenders to spend some years in jail, many so-called big artistes would be in prison by now. Some of them steal songs from fellow musicians based in the country or abroad and pass them off as their own. This is very bad for culture and the creative sector. It is also bad enough for the honest and hardworking Nigerian artiste who goes through a lot of trouble to survive.“Whatever the government decides, the courts are there to ensure that justice prevails. If you find yourself on the wrong side of the law, you will have to accept the consequence of your actions.”
