Jovetic Wants Long-term Inter Stay

Featured Image

Stevan Jovetic has denied talks of him leaving Inter and would love to stay on for long.

Jovetic joined from Manchester City on loan with a view to a permanent deal and impressed early on.

However, a series of injuries prevented him from making a more lasting impact and some reports suggested he could be on his way out of Inter again come June.

Jovetic caught the eye in the 2-0 win over Napoli on Saturday, though, and has made it clear he has no intention of leaving any time soon.

“I know what I can do and, unlike what I’ve read in the papers, I came here to stay for a long time and make my mark,” Jovetic told the official Inter website.

“I didn’t have the best of time but now I’m on the way back and I’m getting some minutes under my belt.

“It was a wonderful feeling to go off to applause at San Siro. I’ve played a lot in the last two matches and I’m sure that my fitness levels will keep improving.”

Jovetic has netted four goals in 21 Serie A appearances this season.

Tuchel Glad With Dortmund Response To Europa League Exit

Featured Image

Thomas Tuchel has revealed he is glad with the way his men responded to their Europa league exit, by winning 3-0 against Hamburg.

Liverpool dumped Dortmund out of the Europa league, 5-4 on aggregate.

But Christian Pulisic’s first Bundesliga goal and a brace from Adrian Ramos helped a much-changed Dortmund respond in good fashion with an easy victory over Hamburg, who had goalkeeper Rene Adler sent off for a second-half challenge on Shinji Kagawa outside the penalty area.

Dortmund’s win closes the gap to Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich to seven points ahead of their DFB-Pokal semi-final against Hertha Berlin and afterwards Tuchel was full of praise for his charges.

“I do not think that Liverpool was still in our minds,” Tuchel told Sky after the match.

“I found it rather positive that we were able to concentrate on a task again.

“We had a lot of changes in the starting lineup. We had to find the positions and the pass rhythm.

“Hamburg’s defending was aggressive and toxic. It just felt a little tough, but it’s also not a crime.

“We have won 3-0 and are very satisfied. We are confident for the DFB cup match in Berlin on Wednesday. We want to reach the final.”

Guardiola: No Player Like Messi Or Ronaldo At Bayern

Featured Image

Pep Guardiola had stated Bayern Munich have no superstar like Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

Lewandowski scored a brace with Vidal getting one in the 3-0 victory over Schalke.

Nevertheless, Guardiola has warned they can’t take their foot off the pedal.

And the Catalan stated that die Roten cannot delude themselves into thinking they pack the individual brilliance necessary to single-handedly win them games on off-days.

“I am not satisfied with our game. In the first half we were not on the pitch. I’m sorry for our fans! You come to see 90 minutes full throttle,” Guardiola told reporters.

“We have no player who scores 50, 60 goals like Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi.

“It is about the attitude to run and run. The difference between the first and the second half was very big.”

Zidane Has No Reason To Rest Ronaldo

Featured Image

Zinedine Zidane believes he has no reason whatsoever to rest Ronaldo, who is helping them to silverware on two fronts.

The Portuguese striker scored an awesome hat trick to help Real Madrid secure a 3-2 victory and progress in the UCL.

And while Zidane substituted the likes of Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, he reveals he never had any intention of doing the same with Ronaldo for the trip to Getafe.

The Portuguese duly went on to net his 31st strike in La Liga this season as he closes in on his fourth Pichichi Trophy, and Zidane sees no reason to rest his star as long as the goals keep coming.

“We rested Karim and Gareth but not Ronaldo,” Zidane told reporters. “He was playing well and we didn’t see a reason to do so.”

But while Ronaldo is unlikely to see a break anytime soon, Zidane is comforted by the performances of some of his stand-ins, such as Isco and James Rodriguez, with both scoring in the win.

“I am very happy with them because it is not easy,” he said. “What I like and what’s important for the team is that when they have the opportunity to play, they do it well.”

Busted! Senate Accused Of Buying 108 SUVs At Twice Showroom Price

Featured Image

There are indications that the Nigerian senate purchased 108 Toyota Land Cruiser Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV) at a price that double the initial price of each vehicle in the country’s showroom.

While the senate commenced the delivery of the 108 SUVs to members at the cost of N3.8 billion, Daily Trust gathered that the first set of the cars, numbering 36, was delivered last Tuesday and distributed to senators last Wednesday.

It was also gathered that the lawmakers purchased each for N35.1 million, while showroom price shows that a Toyota Land Cruiser SUV V6 2016 model cost about N17 million.

The vehicles, it was learnt, were still delivered despite the controversy surrounding its purchase.

The cars were distributed the same day some senators told the Senate President Bukola Saraki that standing committees could no longer perform their statutory functions as a result of paucity of funds.

Speaking on the matter, a source close to the polity said that one senator had been given from each of the 36 states of the federation.

“Since only 36 were delivered at a meeting on Tuesday, it was agreed that one senator should be given from each of the 36 states of the federation. They were given the cars on Wednesday,” the source said.

In a related development, a senator said:

“The cars were initially pegged at N35 million but now it has been reviewed upward to N55 million. They will soon bring the remaining cars but most of the senators close to Saraki have been given. My friend started driving his own on Thursday.

“Nigerians should watch out. Our colleagues have started receiving the cars but some have decided to sell theirs because they don’t want their people to know about them.

“If you collect the cars and you think you are doing the right thing, why won’t you drive it? Are they [Senators] not the ones who insisted on buying the cars? If it is legal and right, let them drive the cars to their constituencies.”

Reacting to the matter, when contacted, the spokesperson of the Senate, Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, said the cars were a necessity, and not luxury.

He said: “Let us face the reality, if Special Advisers can use cars like this as official cars, then why the noise about ours? A senator is representing a constituency, a district. Do you expect him to be trekking to discharge his duties? These cars are not a luxury, the cars are a practical and absolute necessity.”

“It is not far from the problem everybody knows. It is not that the committees are not working; it is the quantum of the work; because one committee could organize five public hearings. So it is the quantum of work and limited resources.

“The cars are capital projects, while the public hearings are not. There is a difference between capital and recurrent expenditure,”

“On Saturday 16th April 2016, troops of 7 Division Strike Group Team B and 22 Task Force Brigade conducted a simultaneous dawn raid on suspected Boko Haram terrorists hideouts at Biggoro, Warpaya and Aura, North of Kumshe in Bama Local Government Area.

“The essence of the operation was stop the reported criminal activities of remnants of Boko Haram terrorists hiding in the three villages. This became necessary as previous efforts were futile. The suspected terrorists kept coming in search for food, water and shelter.

“The surprised dawn attack yielded positive result as the troops discovered well concealed observation posts on trees in the villages constructed by the terrorists to give them early warning of troops movement or approach.

“In addition the troops found out that the observation posts though tree tops, were constructed in such a manner with chairs and ropes to pull up foods and other needs by the sentry without necessarily coming down the trees.

To also save for the rainy day, the terrorists had underground food storage facilities where they stocked large quantity of foodstuffs. The troops killed two Boko Haram terrorists and also recovered three AK-47 rifles, magazines and ammunitions. They also recovered two motorcycles from them. In addition they rescued two children from the terrorists.”

DSS And The Slain Fulani In Igbo Mass Grave: The Lesson From Yugoslavia – Fani-Kayode

Featured Image
The Department of State Security (DSS) have claimed that five Fulani herdsmen were abducted, killed and buried in a mass grave by members of IPOB in Abia state a few days ago. It also claimed that there were up to 50 more bodies in the grave and that they are all Fulani.
The views and opinions expressed here are those of Femi Fani-Kayode and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.
The implications of this announcement is obvious. It will create more tension and fear in the land and it will lead to reprisal killings in the North. Violence is never the way out and I have always believed that it has no place in any civilized society. Yet what I find curious about this announcement is the fact that it is unique and historic. I say this because thousands of Igbos, Yorubas, Niger-Deltans and Middle Belters have been killed by Fulani militants and herdsmen over the last ten months since President Buhari came to power, yet the DSS has never announced it and told the country about the details and ethnic identities of the victims.
When one thousand Shiite Muslims were slaughtered in Zaria and buried in mass graves the DSS did not speak. When five hundred Idomas were massacred in Agatu by Fulani militants the DSS did not speak. When hundreds of southern and Middle Belt farms were raided by AK-47-wielding Fulani herdsmen who murdered, raped, burnt down and took over the land of their victims, the DSS never gave us details of the victims or made any announcements. When our leaders in the South were kidnapped and when men witnessed their wives and children being raped and butchered by the Fulani militias before their very eyes, the DSS made no announcements.
When the elder-statesman Chief Olu Falae’s farm was raided by the Fulani militants for the third time in one year and his OPC guard was slaughtered, the DSS made no announcements. When the villagers and farmers in the south-east were murdered and their wives and daughters were abducted by the Fulani militants, the DSS made no announcements. When traditional rulers, nuns and priests were abducted and killed by Fulani herdsmen in the south-south the DSS made no announcements. When the farms of the south west were attacked and ravaged and Yoruba farmers and their families were butchered by the Fulani militants the DSS made no announcements.
When the International Terror Index told the world that the Fulani militias in Nigeria are the “fourth most deadly terror organization in the world”, the DSS said nothing and neither did they give us details about their activities or their victims. Worse of all is the fact that our government and our President, who himself happens to be a Fulani, has never deemed it fit or necessary to condemn the activities of the Fulani herdsmen and militants and neither have they expressed any sympathy or displayed any empathy for their many victims.
Let me be clear: The murder of anyone, regardless of their ethnicity or faith, is unacceptable to me. I deplore murder and violence and, in my view, the killing of one innocent soul diminishes the humanity of every single one of us as a community and a nation. However, it seems curious that the minute that Fulanis are killed in the East, the DSS is quick to rise to the occasion and express concern about it whilst they do not express the same concern when Nigerians from other ethnic nationalities were killed by the Fulani in their own homes and land. Double standard Therein lies the double standard and it is sad and unfortunate.
Furthermore, not only is it very dangerous but it also confirms the view that our government and security agencies are not only partial but that they are also attempting to implement an ethnic and religious agenda. Three questions must be answered: Firstly, who is funding the Fulani herdsmen and where do they get their weapons from? Secondly, why does our government not only turn a blind eye to the mass murder and genocide that they regularly indulge in but also go out of their way to protect them? And thirdly, why do the government and security agencies have so much hatred and contempt for those that the Fulani regularly target and their victims and why do they believe that those victims do not deserve to enjoy the full protection of the Federal Government?
Could it be because they are regarded as slaves and second class citizens? Is Fulani blood and are Fulani lives more important than others? Indeed, do non-Fulani lives matter in President Buhari’s Nigeria? Are we compelled to begin a ‘’non-Fulani lives matter” movement which is based and fashioned on the “Black Lives Matter” movement in the United States of America before we can draw the attention of the world to what is going on in our country? Is it not obvious and logical that when the security agencies refuse to protect the citizens from the murderous hordes and herdsmen from hell, those citizens will eventually seek to protect themselves and go on the offensive? That is human nature and it is to be expected. Is it not clear to those in power that when a people are convinced that their government is no longer impartial in any conflict and that the security agencies of that government have been directed to go out of their way to actively and openly support those that constantly and regularly slaughter their people, it will eventually lead to open war?
Is it so difficult to accept the fact that no government and no force from hell or on earth can compel or intimidate a man into lying down passively and silently watch his family, loved ones and kinsmen being butchered and slaughtered morning, day and night, without trying to protect them and without indulging in some form of retaliation? Causes of war With the sort of things that are going on in our country today, it is time to tell ourselves some home-truths. No-one wishes to accept it let alone say it but sadly war may come to Nigeria again.I do not want war and I consider it to be the ultimate evil but I am constrained to speak the truth and say things as I see them. The fact that a war is coming is a testimony to the fact that we have all failed to manage the peace that God has given us since 1970 and the cessation of hostilities after our brutal civil war. We have failed so badly that the remote and immediate causes of that civil war are back with us today even though we hate to admit or acknowledge it.
Our country is like Yugoslavia unfolding before it exploded and violently broke into five separate countries. All the signs are there. Anyone that knows about the history of Yugoslavia or that is a student of world history will agree with me and appreciate what I am saying. Consider the dangerous mix. A crumbling economy. An inept, weak, failing and paranoid government. A hungry, angry and increasingly desperate civilian population. An ignorant, obsessive, arrogant, insensitive, corrupt and self-absorbed political class who are out of touch with reality.
The implementation of an ethnic and religious agenda by a government that refuses to consider the implications of taking such a course of action and that have an early-1960’s mind-set. A relentless clamp-down on and persecution of the opposition and all dissenting voices by the government and the use of fear as a tool of governance and control. The entering into military alliance with a group of Arab Sunni Muslim countries that seek to Islamise our country. The constant and open abuse of power. The impunity and insensitivity of the Buhari administration to the plight of the masses. The hunger, hardship, poverty and suffering in the land. The failure of the government to get rid of the fuel queues and supply electrical power. The demonisation of peaceful and law-abiding self-determination groups and the unlawful incarceration of their leaders. The breach of the constitutional rights of the citizens and the ignoring of court orders and judicial processes by the government. The attempt to intimidate and control the judiciary and legislature by government.
The list goes on and on and history proves that such a mixture of circumstances is dangerous and can only lead to open conflict if not halted. The country is badly divided today and the people are suffering as never before. We must do our best to ensure that that division and hatred does not spill over into open war. This is because war is a terrible thing which must be avoided at all costs. The Yugoslavia lesson If anyone doubts that they should consider the plight of the Bosnians of Bosnia-Herzogovina during the Yugoslavian civil war that took place in the European Balkans in the late 1980’s right up until 1992. They were the only ethnic group in Yugoslavia that was not prepared for it when the war started. They had no arms, no plan, no allies and no fall back position. When the fighting started, they were caught unawares and, for two years, they suffered immeasurably for their stupidity and naivety whilst their people were killed like flies and their women and children were raped and enslaved.
God forbid this should happen to any ethnic group or ANY of our people in Nigeria. The reason that they suffered for two years was because there was an international arms embargo placed on all the ethnic groups and warring militias and armies in Yugoslavia when the war started. And, sadly, the Bosnians were the only ones that did not buy and stockpile arms in preparation for war, months and years before it actually broke out. Plagued by a cowardly and weak-minded ruling elite and a naive, self-serving, servile, ignorant and intellectually-challenged middle class, the Bosnians just kept talking, writing newspaper articles, appeasing the aggressors and their tormentors, praying and hoping for peace whilst all the other ethnic and religious groups and warring parties were quietly preparing for war. Sounds familiar? They suffered immensely for their lack of understanding, insight and foresight and their civilian population paid a heavy price.
For two years after the civil war started, the Bosnians could not even buy a gun or bullet to defend themselves. Their towns were besieged and blown up whilst their women and children were raped, enslaved and butchered. Their men were rounded up into Second World War-like Nazi concentration camps and starved and tortured to death and their dignity and self-respect was taken from them. They were turned into an internally-displaced people and their land was transformed into a sea of desperate and suffering refugees. It was a nightmare from hell and suffering on this scale had not been seen on European soil since the First and Second World Wars.
It was after the international community silently watched them being slaughtered by their Serbian and Croatian compatriots for two long years that they were compelled, as a consequence of pressure from the people of the world and on moral and humanitarian grounds, to lift the arms embargo on them so that they could buy arms to defend themselves. The war dragged on for more years after that but, at least, the Bosnians, though two years late, were now able to fight back and defend themselves. It took the intervention of NATO, the bombing of Belgrade by the international community led by the Americans and the eventual break-up of the entire country into five pieces to stop the carnage and barbarity of the Serbs and eventually bring the civil war to an end. It was during that war that the term “ethnic cleansing” was first used by CNN to describe what was being done by the Serbs to the Bosnians, the Croats, the Slovenians, the Kosovars, the Macedonians and the Monte Negrans, all of whom represented the other ethnic groups that made up the old Yugoslavia.
Eventually the country broke up and each of them got their independence from the dominant Serbs and from one another. If such a thing could have happened in the heart of Europe in the early 1990’s why on earth would any reasonably intelligent person dismiss the notion that it can happen here? The only difference would be that if such a thing were to ever unfold in our country, it would be far worse than what happened in Yugoslavia due to the sheer size of our population. We must do all we can to avoid this. We must reach out to one another in love and understanding in this country in an attempt to prevent war and secure the peace.
Yet sadly the signs of a future conflict are already there. I pray that I am wrong but as far as I am concerned, for Nigeria, the bell is tolling. May the Lord deliver us.

DSS Arrests 5 Suspects For Kidnap, Murder Of NYSC Member After Getting N1m Ransom

Featured Image

The Department of State Security (DSS), in Rivers State has apprehended five suspects in connection to the abduction and murder of a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Mr Sampson Worlu.

The late corps member was serving in Imo State before his abduction at Rumuokoro roundabout in Obio Akpor local government area of Rivers State in November 2015. A lawyer, he was called to the Bar on October 2015.

The suspects – Chijioke Wisdom, Chinwendu Alozie, Wilfred Jumbo, Igwe Chikezie and Gift Peace Amadi – who allegedly murdered the hostage after being paid a ransom of N1 million for his release, are already facing charges at a magistrate court in Port Harcourt.

They will all be arraigned before the Magistrate Court on Monday, April 18, 2016.

Charles Worlu, a brother of the deceased hostage, said all the family wanted was justice.

Narrating what happened, he said: “We dropped him at Rumuokoro Junction to continue his journey to Imo State. We didn’t hear from him again that day.”

“Early the next day, we received a strange call from a dreaded voice who claimed they have abducted Sampson. They gave him the phone to speak with us and he confirmed his kidnapped.”

“The abductors collected the phone from him and demanded we give them Five million naira before we could see our brother again.

“In fear that they could harm Sampson, we negotiated with them and dropped five hundred thousand naira for them at Eleme/Elelenwo/Akporjo Road near Shell location.

“They collected it and said we should pick our brother at Rumukurushi by Hospital Junction. But they never kept to their promise. After few days, they demanded for another five hundred thousand naira, we paid but never saw our brother.”

Hiddink Praises Beautiful Player De Bruyne

Featured Image

Guus Hiddink has praised Chelsea reject, De Bruyne as a beautiful player after his showing for Manchester City.

The Belgium midfielder was a key player in the rout for City, with his incisive passing.

And Hiddink has lauded the ability of the 24-year-old, though he stopped short of claiming Chelsea made a mistake in offloading De Bruyne two years ago.

“He is very keen on playing in between the lines,” he told reporters. “He was a beautiful player to see. The difference a bit between us and Man City, they need one and a half chance and then they score one goal.

“Unless you play them, it is beautiful to see. It is always easy to give analysis now [on De Bruyne leaving]. Was there competition for three or four players in one position when he was here? Yes.

“It is beautiful to see how he has developed himself.”

Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick in City’s victory on Saturday, which moved them above Arsenal and into third in the Premier League table, though the Gunners have a game in hand.

Wenger: Arsenal Fail To Show Up Against Small Teams

Featured Image

Arsene Wenger has criticised Arsenal for dropping points against smaller teams.

Arsenal have dropped 13 points behind leaders Leicester, with their hope of winning a trophy shelved for a season.

Arsenal beat Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park earlier in the campaign but their manager has admitted that on too many occasions his team has slipped up in matches they are expected to win.

“If you look objectively at our season we have done better than anybody against the big teams… but we did not turn up when we felt we were less under pressure,” he told reporters.

“I say to my players that our responsibility is to fight in every single match until the last minute of the season.”

Arsenal were held to a 3-3 draw by West Ham last time out despite taking a 2-0 lead, but Wenger has defended his side’s style of play.

“We are an attacking side,” he added. “I don’t think you can pretend to be a big club and say ‘we only want to defend’ – we have that responsibility and we have to stand up for that.

“We have to continue to develop the quality of our game. It doesn’t mean we have to change our style. It means we have to be better in the style we play.

“At West Ham, the fact that Carroll stayed on the pitch was absolutely scandalous. But nobody speaks about that.

“Of course, then, it’s easy to be physical. If you’re allowed absolutely everything on the football pitch. It’s easy to be physical – because you’re not punished.”
