Iniesta: Italy Match Up Will Prove Beneficial For Spain

Featured Image

Andres Iniesta believes that Spain will benefit from facing an opponent as good as Italy in the next round of the Euros. Believing it can only serve as a boost to La Roja’s chances of winning the continental event.

Spain were shocked by Croatia, as they lost 2-1, finishing second in their group. Which set up a replay of the 2012 final against Italy. Spain emerged victorious in that encounter, winning 4-0 in Kiev.

Iniesta will not be intimidated by the prospect of coming up against Conte’s Italy, but is looking forward to the challenge.

“They’re a powerful rival, a difficult rival, and [it will be] a good game,” Iniesta said. “It’s a game that will be useful to us if we are to keep developing and taking steps in these Euros.

“Aside from the final four years ago, all of our games have been very closely fought out. Italy have excellent players and a great defensive block we’ve known about for a long time.

“Contrary to what I hear people saying, they also improved a great deal in terms of possession and ball-handling. They really stepped up, which makes the game on Monday even more complex and our aspirations even more difficult.

“This is how things went, we lost and now we’ve got to deal with Italy. We must face this situation with the appropriate confidence, because I believe that if we play at our level then we have some good chances of passing [into the next round].”

Iniesta conceded that Spain would have preferred to win their group, as they have landed in the stronger bottom half of the draw as a result, with Germany potentially awaiting in the quarter-finals.

“It hasn’t gone well, but we must continue, nothing has happened,” the Barcelona star added.

“We’re on the more complicated side [of the draw] in theory but we are Spain and we have to remain confident.”

Halliburton Scandal: New Twist Emerges As Aisha Buhari’s Imposter Threatens Legal Action

Halliburton Scandal: New Twist Emerges As Aisha Buhari’s Imposter Threatens Legal Action

A new twist has emerged as Ms Aisha Buhari – the woman who shares same name with the First Lady of Nigeria – allegedly mentioned in the Halliburton bribery scandal of a former United States congressman, William Jefferson, has denied involvement in the scandal, even as she threatened legal action.

Halliburton Scandal: Aisha Buhari's imposter

Halliburton Scandal: Aisha Buhari’s imposter

On Monday, Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state, had shared a link of the U.S. Department of Justice website, holding court documents, where a certain Aisha Buhari was alleged to have transferred suspicious funds to a convicted Jefferson.

Fayose had accused President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife of being the woman involved in the scandal, which left the congressman sentenced to prison for 13 years in 2009.

“The estate he built in Abuja is known to us. His wife was indicted over the Halliburton Scandal. When that American, Jefferson, was being sentenced, the President’s wife was mentioned as having wired $170,000 to Jefferson. Her name was on page 25 of the sentencing of Jefferson. We can serialize the judgment for people to see and read,” he said.

In a swift reaction to the allegation, a former chairman of the EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu, said that the Aisha Buhari mentioned in the bribery scandal was an impostor who was peddling influence with the name of President Buhari.

READ ALSO: Aisha Buhari Goes Off On Fayose On Twitter

Premium Times quoted Ribadu as saying that the EFCC during his tenure, in conjunction with U.S. authorities, almost arrested the impostor.

He also circulated a passport of this Aisha Buhari.

“She is a different person and has lived in the U.S. for years. She is hardly in Nigeria. The EFCC was working with U.S. authorities on the investigations. One of my plans was to arrest her before I left the commission. Our suspicion then was that she was using the Buhari name for influence.

“The EFCC laid ambush to see if she would come into the country so she could be arrested. I didn’t know what happened to the plan to arrest her after I left,” he said.

However, the US based lady, who shares the same name with the President’s wife, while speaking exclusively with The Street Journal on Tuesday night in the United States, said she was never involved in the scandal and linking her name with it was most malicious and wicked.

She said the allegation “is like pouring water on a sleeping person. I have never done anything with Halliburton, I don’t know the colour of the company. I am not in the line of business with Halliburton, so linking me with the bribery is wicked”.

“If they think they are politician and can break the law and go free, they should realise that nobody is above the laws of a country including me”.

On whether she is going to take legal action, she said:” I am talking with my Lawyers, they will determine that”, she summed.

Brown came through with a reply, “That’s never the answer. Suicide is a word that I don’t sit well with. You are thinking of a decision based on your emotions. Life is too hard at times but way too beautiful to check out early.”

“I have been there mentally, then I had faith in God. Not faith in people/humans. We all are lost and we all want to feel love, appreciation and joy.” The father-of-one continued, “I battle with myself and my demons everyday. Trust, rich/poor doesn’t matter.

Featured Image

Leicester City have agreed a four-year deal with Jamie Vardy, after the striker snubbed a move to Arsenal.

Arsenal triggered his £20 million release clause on the eve of the Euros. As Arsene Wenger was looking to provide competition for Giroud.

However, the 29-year-old has rejected the chance to wear the red and white of Arsenal. And has instead opted to stay with Leicester City, a club he helped win their maiden EPL trophy.

“Leicester City have today agreed with the representatives of Jamie Vardy to extend the England international’s contract with the Premier League champions for a further four years,” a Leicester statement read.

“Both parties hope that this announcement will end recent speculation regarding Jamie’s future and confirm his long term commitment to Leicester City Football Club.

“Jamie will continue to focus all of his efforts on trying to achieve success with the England team at the European Championships in France.”

Vardy scored 24 goals as the Foxes won their first ever league title, with his form earning him and call-up to this summer’s Euros.

And he continued his own personal fairytale by netting in England’s Group B win over Wales before starting the draw against Slovakia.

Antoine Griezmann has signed a contract extension with Atletico Madrid. The Frenchman signed a contract that’ll keep him at the club till 2021.

The France international has been linked with a move away from Spain, after impressing at Atletico last season. The forward scored 32 goals for the capital club in all competitions.

A delighted Griezmann told Atletico’s official website: “I’m very satisfied, very happy to keep belonging to this family and this project.

“I want to improve every year, and the club, the coaches and my teammates can help me to reach this goal.”

Griezmann, 25, stressed the importance of Atletico keeping their structure in place, including coach Diego Simeone – who had been contemplating his future after the club’s Champions League final defeat against Real Madrid.

“It’s essential to continue keeping the important players, with the coach,” he added. “We’re lucky to be in this club that wants to improve and reach the top and help us keep growing.”

Nigerian Army Denies Plot To Overthrow Buhari, Vows To Probe Coup Rumours

Featured Image

The Nigeria Army has reacted with a rebuttal to rumours of a plot to overthrow the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

This is even as the Army threatened to investigate and track down those behind the recent speculation that some of its most senior officers had approached the Niger Delta militants for support to carry out a coup against the current government.

READ ALSO: ‘Beware! Some Top Army Officers Are Planning To Overthrow You’ – Militants To Buhari

In a statement issued on Thursday morning by the Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, the Army, described the group as faceless, and therefore called on the general public to disregard the claim in its entirety.

The statement also described the coup speculation as a calculated attempt to distract the army from its ongoing war against terror in the country.

The statement reads in full:

“The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to another campaign of calumny and distraction by faceless criminal gang of economic saboteurs that hide under the aegis of Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF) alleging that some officers of the Nigerian Army approached them for support to overthrow our duly elected present democratic government.

This is baseless and most unfortunate allegation that existed in the warped minds of the originators of such weighty allegation. The Nigerian Army wish to state that this is not true and hereby distanced itself from this weighty allegation.

We also see this speculation as a dangerous distraction to our effort in fighting insurgency and other criminal elements in the country.

The Nigerian Army would like to send a strong and an unequivocal warning to those speculating a coup by the Nigerian Army (NA) against the Government to desist forthwith. We would like state in clear terms that that we are a product of democracy and a focused professional institution and would have nothing to do with such abomination and heinous crime.

We wish to state further that the NA is the greatest beneficiary of democracy and therefore cannot ever contemplate any anti-democratic misadventure, certainly not under the command of the present Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai.

Rather, we see this type of dangerous speculation as a declaration of war to destabilise the present government by these unscrupulous elements.

The Nigerian Army is investigating those behind the dangerous insinuation in order to unravel the real motive behind it.

We would like to reiterate our unalloyed loyalty to the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and defence of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. We would also like to reaffirm our unconditional support and obedience to civil authority.

We wish to further assure Nigerians and indeed all peace loving people that the Nigerian Army and indeed its personnel will never be involved in such terrible misadventure.

We wish to further add that no matter how long it takes, we would track and find out those behind these insinuations and bring them to justice.‎”

Since Nigeria became politically independent in 1960, the country has witnessed nine different coups and attempted coups.

It would be recalled, President Buhari, then a military ruler, was ousted from power through a palace coup in December 31 1985 by Mr. Babangida, a general and chief of army staff at the time.

Mr. Buhari’s regime also came through coup in 1983.

#CopaAmerica2016: Chile Beat Colombia 2-0 To Set Up Repeat Of Last Year’s Final Against Argentina

Featured Image

Chile can claim back-to-back Copa America titles, after sealing a spot in the finals, following a 2-0 win over Colombia.

The current holders were 2-0 up in the 11th minutes, thanks to strikes from Aranguiz and Feunzalida.

Juan Cuadrado was unfortunate to have assisted the first goal, after heading down a cross for Aranguiz. And Fuenzalida latched on to a Sanchez shot that came off the post.

There was a delay of over two hours, due to a severe storm making its way to the Soldier Field. Which left wet patches on the field after the skies cleared.

Colombia worked hard to reduce the deficit but was dealt a huge blow when Carlos Sanchez received a second yellow card in the 57th minute.

Chile held on to the win to seal a spot in the final against Argentina – a rematch of the 2015 decider in which the former came out a winner after a penalty shootout.

‘Beware! Some Top Army Officers Are Planning To Overthrow You’ – Militants To Buhari

Featured Image

Militants in the Niger delta under the aegis, Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF), have claimed that some top military officers are planning to overthrow President Muhammadu Buhari’s  government through a coup d’état.

This is even as the group said that the senior Army officers had approached Niger- Delta militants to continue bombing oil installations to give reason and justification for a coup against him.

In a statement signed on Tuesday by persons who identified themselves as ‘General’ Torunanaowei Latei (Creek Network Coordinator); ‘General’ Agbakakuro Owei-Tauro (Pipeline Bleeding Expert); ‘General’ Akotebe Darikoro (Commander, General Duties) and ‘General’ Pulokiri Ebikade (Intelligence Bureau), the group said the officers behind the coup plot were planning to instigate civil unrest in the Niger Delta as part of their strategies to topple the Buhari administration.

The statement reads, “We are constraint to let the cat out of the bag today that President Mohammadu Buhari should be wary about the security of this country as some military men are making move to remove him from power by instigating civil unrest in the country.

“Some top military men through their civil agents approached us to cause and continue the vandalization of the oil and gas pipelines in the Niger delta region so as to use as an excuse to take over the government from democracy to military rule in the country.

“We said no as such plan will not work and not in conformity with our genuine desire of agitation.The military want to disgrace him now and let him quickly look into the issues and make pronouncement for his administration to be in peace.

“We received several calls unknown to persuade us to continue the bombing and that when succeeded in overthrowing the government we will be placed on a better position, we said capital NO!

“When asked of their names they are above Major General’s level. They refused to disclose their names but their intonations seem like yoruba and Hausa. Our agitation is not for selfish interest but for the overall benefit of the Niger delta region.

“We’ll not kidnap any person, kill or hostage taking of any expatriate in the country but will continue our agitation with clear determination to actualize our course in Nigeria.

“We believe their sinister plan because there is ceasefire in the region for dialogue, but since then, the attitude and actions of the service chiefs show that such plan could work for them.”

It would be recalled, the militant group, had two weeks ago, threatened to launch six missiles targeted at the Presidential Villa, Abuja and other national assets.

Swedish Soccer Player Gets A ‘RED CARD’ For Farting During Match

A Swedish soccer player was given a red card for farting too loudly during a match, even as the referee accused him of “deliberate provocation” and “unsportsmanlike behaviour”.

Pershagen SK left back Adam Lindin Ljungkvist was dismissed late in a match against Järna SK’s reserves in what he says is the “strangest thing I have ever experienced in football,” according to Länstidningen Södertälje and translated by The Guardian.

The soccer player was left in disbelief when referee Dany Kako gave him his marching orders for blowing off – and assumed the official must have thought he had broken wind into his hand and hurtled the ghastly gas in his direction.

The 25 years old said: “I had a bad stomach, so I simply let go.”

“Then I received two yellow cards and then red. Yes, I was shocked, it’s the strangest thing I have ever experienced in football.

“I asked the referee, ‘What, am I not allowed to break wind a little?’ ‘No,’ he replied … I don’t get it but maybe he thought I farted in my hand and threw the fart at him. But I did not.”

The match official was not the only one to pick up on Ljungkvist’s flatulence, as an opposing player also noted the unmistakable sound from a ways away:

Opposition striker Kristoffer Linde told the paper: “I was standing a good distance away but I heard the fart loud and clear. It’s the strangest thing I’ve seen on a pitch, and I’ve been playing football since I was eight years old.”

The referee, Dany Kako, confirmed that Ljungkvist had received the second yellow card for breaking wind.

He said: “I perceived it as deliberate provocation. He did it on purpose and it was inappropriate. Therefore, he received a yellow card.”

Amazingly, the ref admitted it was not the most absurd yellow card he has ever dished out in his career.
He said: “Yes. No one must get a yellow card for farting on the field. Once there was a player who stood and peed next to the pitch. That was also a yellow card.”

The Limit Of Fayose’s Legal Immunity – Femi Falana

The Limit Of Fayose’s Legal Immunity – Femi Falana

Sometime in 2004, Governor Ayo Fayose was reported by The News magazine to have stolen N1.2 billion from the coffers of Ekiti State government. The brutal killings in the state were also traced to a killer squad funded by the governor. Embarrassed by the publication Mr. Fayose sued the magazine at the high court holden at Ado Ekiti. Our law firm defended the magazine and pleaded justification. At the trial of the case, the allegations in the publication were proved beyond any shadow of a doubt. In dismissing the lawsuit, the trial judge said that Mr. Fayose had no reputation worthy of protection by any court.

This piece was written by Femi Falana. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of

The allegation of the looting of the treasury of the state was investigated by the EFCC, which proceeded to charge Mr. Fayose at the Federal High Court. The Police also charged him with the murder of Tunde Omojola at the Ekiti state high court. Both cases were pending in court when he contested and ‘won’ the Ekiti State governorship election. Shortly thereafter, a young army officer, Captain Sagir Koli exposed the involvement of some armed personnel led by General Aliyu Momoh in the coup which resulted in the ‘re-election’ of Governor Fayose. All the criminal suspects initially denied their involvement in the criminal enterprise. But when confronted with the tape recording of the plot to manipulate the election Mr. Fayose admitted that he took part in the coup.

Based on the expose by Captain Koli the authorities of the Nigerian Army set up a panel of enquiry to investigate the role of the armed soldiers in the violent subversion of the democratic process in Ekiti State. The panel conducted the inquiry and identified the military officers and men who participated in the coup which led to the pyrrhic victory of Mr. Ayo Fayose. The report of the panel was submitted to the Chief of Army Staff who promised to act on it by implementing its recommendations.

The indicted military officers and armed soldiers have since been flushed out of the Nigerian army. Some of them were also referred to the EFCC for further investigation over allegations of financial inducement and corrupt practices. The findings of the Nigerian Army panel have been corroborated by Mr. Fayose’s campaign manager, Dr. Tope K. Aluko, who addressed several press conferences wherein he gave graphic details of the illegal deployment of armed troops and criminal diversion of public funds for the governorship election allegedly won by Mr. Fayose. In particular, he revealed that the fund for the election was ferried to Ado Ekiti by a former minister who is currently in self-exile in the United States.

While not challenging the allegation by the EFCC that the sum of N1.3 billion has been traced to his personal account Mr. Fayose has attempted to hide under the immunity clause to shield himself from the investigation. Contrary to the governor’s claim he does not enjoy immunity from investigation with respect to his criminal involvement in treasonable conduct and corrupt practices. It is trite law that all the public officers protected by Section 308 of the Constitution can be investigated for corruption and other criminal offences. In Chief Gani Fawehinmi vs. Inspector General of Police (2002) 23 WRN 1 the Supreme Court held:

         “That a person protected under section 308 of the 1999 Constitution, going by its provisions, can be investigated by the   police for an alleged crime or offence is, in my view, beyond dispute. To hold otherwise is to create a monstrous situation whose manifestation may not be fully appreciated until illustrated…The evidence may be useful for impeachment purposes if the House of Assembly may have need of it. It may no doubt be used for prosecution of the said incumbent Governor after he has left office. But to do nothing under the pretext that a Governor cannot be investigated is a disservice to the society.”

To ensure that the investigation of the public officers covered by the immunity clause is not compromised by the executive  the Chief Justice of Nigeria is empowered by section 52 of the ICPC Act to appoint an Independent Counsel (who shall be a legal practitioner of not less than 15 years standing) to investigate any allegation of corruption against the President, Vice President Governor or Deputy Governor. The ICPC is enjoined to cooperate fully with such independent counsel and provide all facilities necessary for such independent counsel to carry out his functions. At the end of the investigation, the Independent Counsel is required to make a report of the findings to the National Assembly in the case of the President or Vice President and to the relevant House of Assembly of a State in the case of the Governor or Deputy Governor.

Since there is no immunity for impunity as far as electoral malfeasance is concerned the investigation by the EFCC is in order. The senior lawyers who have questioned the freezing of Mr. Fayose’s account on the ground that the EFCC did not obtain a court order have not read section 28 of the EFCC Act which provides that “where a person is arrested for an offence under this Act, the Commission shall immediately trace and attach all the assets and properties of the person acquired as a result of such economic or financial crime and shall thereafter cause to be obtained an interim attachment order from the Court”. The law permits the EFCC to freeze an account or attach a property of a criminal suspect and proceed thereafter to obtain an ex parte order from the appropriate court.

I am not unaware that by the strict interpretation of section 308 of the Constitution no court process can be issued or served on a governor. But because immunity cannot be pleaded or invoked to cover electoral fraud, elected governors are served with court processes and dragged to court to respond to allegations of electoral malpractice. However, in order to give effect and validity to the equality of the rights of all contestants in a presidential or governorship elections, it has been held by the Supreme Court that immunity clause cannot be invoked in election petitions. Otherwise, public officers covered by the immunity clause may take advantage of their positions to rig elections and thereby sabotage the democratic process. The rationale for suspending the operation of the immunity clause during the hearing of election petition was explained by the late Justice Kayode Eso in Obih Vs. Mbakwe (1984) All NLR 134 at 148 when he said:

“With respect, to extend the immunity to cover the governors from being legally challenged when seeking a second term will spell injustice. I am conscious of the fact that in my interpretation of section 267 of the Constitution, I am giving that provision a narrow interpretation. This is deliberate for in my view, in the interpretation of the Constitution, care should be taken not to diminish from the justice of the matter, this is not a case of a judge engaging in legislative process. ”

Similarly, in Turaki v. Dalhaltu(2003) 38 WRN 54 at 168 the Court of Appeal (per Oguntade JCA (as he then was) had this to say:

“There is no doubt that a Governor by the force of section 308 of the 1999 Constitution is immuned from civil and criminal proceedings for his personal acts but in proceedings in an election petition or seeking to enforce rights appertaining to or arising from national elections, no Governor in my view enjoys or can claim immunity. In an election matter, as in this case, the right of the Governor to remain, such Governor, is in issue. If a Governor were to be considered immune from court proceedings, that would create the position where a sitting Governor would be able to flout election laws and regulations to the detriment of other person contesting with him. This will make a nonsense of the election process and be against the spirit of our national Constitution which in its tenor provides for a free and fair election.”

In the case of the Alliance for Democracy v. Peter Ayodele Fayose (No 1) (2004) 26 WRN 34 the Respondent had challenged the issuance of a subpoena on him on the ground that Section 308 has conferred immunity on him as a governor. While dismissing the objection the Court of Appeal (per Muri Okunola JCA) held:

“…The provisions of section 308 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria are not applicable to confer immunity on a State Governor in an election petition involving his election to preclude the issuance of subpoena on him. Or put in another way: the immunity provided by the provisions of section 308 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 on a State Governor is put in abeyance when his election is being disputed before an Election Tribunal as to make him amenable to being compelled by a subpoena to tender document(s) or give evidence before the Election Tribunal.”

In view of the fact that the effect of section 308 of the Constitution has been watered down, Governor Fayose cannot invoke the immunity clause to shield himself from an investigation. Since the offences of fraud, treason and criminal diversion of public funds were allegedly committed in connection with the 2014 governorship election in Ekiti state, Mr. Fayose who was a candidate of the PDP at the material time is liable to be investigated. And if he is indicted  Mr. Fayose ought to be prosecuted by the EFCC since the immunity of a governor is put in abeyance when the legitimacy of his election is in dispute.

Finally, in his desperate bid to divert public attention from the ongoing investigation of the criminal diversion of public funds Mr. Fayose has attempted to link me with his indictment by the Nigerian Army and the EFCC. Notwithstanding that the allegation is completely baseless I fully support the investigations. I do not need to instigate the anti-graft agencies to enquire into the activities of a serial treasury looter. Having admitted his involvement in the coup which occurred in Ekiti State, which culminated in his emergence as governor Mr. Fayose ought to be prosecuted for treason which arose from the electoral malfeasance.
