Boko Haram: Shekau Threatens To ‘Unofficially’ Visit Buhari At Aso Villa

Featured Image

The 24-minute video, which was partly in Arabic and ended largely in Hausa, had the group issuing direct threats to the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Butatai and the spokesman of the Nigeria Army, Sani Usman, whom they labeled as their avowed enemies and infidels.

Former leader of terror group, Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, has in a new video, threatened more vicious attacks, even has he vowed to pay President Muhammadu Buhari a ferocious visit at his presidential villa.

The embattled kingpin of the extremist cult, who paraded a large number of his men and munitions, was quiet while one of his masked lieutenants read out a statement that reiterated their unflagging loyalty to him while denouncing ISIS’ choice of Mr. Abu Mussab Albarnawi as its West African ‘Wali’ (leader), Premium Times said.

Shekau also expressed his displeasure with Albagdadhi-led ISIS for recognising Mr. Albarnawi as the new leader of Boko Haram in West Africa. It however failed to withdraw its loyalty to Mr. Albagdadhi whom they repeatedly referred to as Khalifa (Supreme leader) – an indication that Boko Haram is still very much comfortable being under the stronger umbrella of ISIS.

The translated version of the video read

“This is a message from the group of Jamaatu Ahlil sunna liddawati wal jihad in West Africa of the Islamic caliphate to all the Jihadists of the world; especially to Abubakar Albagdadi.

“News has recently come to us through the media outlets, including those of the infidels. The news was that someone has been made leader or vicegerent of our movement in West Africa. But we are telling you that the appointed person has no qualifications to become our leader. We have listened and heard from them and their comment and how they tried to defame Ahlil Sunna wal jamaaa and we are further convinced that such a person cannot become our leader. And we cannot follow the one that is not of Ahlil Sunna wal jamaaa’.

“Besides, our leader, Abubakar Shekau, has sent you an 8-point message detailing why the person you appointed cannot lead because he is one of those that are called irjai. You (Albagdadhi) has sent a message back to our leader asking for the meaning of Irjai which he explained to you and you have failed to get back to us till date.

“Apart from that in the message we sent to you, you’ve not been able to address all the questions asked and the issues raised till date. For that reason, we are telling you that we are together with our leader, Abubakar Shekau.

“There are other issues that we want to raise but not on this platform.

“We have not reneged on our professed loyalty in the leadership of Albagdadi. We are still with him. But we will not entertain any middle man to come between us and the Khalifa Albagdadhi until we meet face to face with the Khalifa or get a video or audio message from him, then we will reveal to him core secrets about those they are building their trust on.

“We are also warning you the infidels of the West African countries that in no distant time, you are going to be visited with a calamity from us that will marvel you all for a long time to come. We will shock the world very soon. Watch out for us.

“Especially, the Cheif of Army staff , General Buratai and the army spokesman, Kukasheka; we are going to show you our strength in Nigeria. The world should know that we are no longer out to fight Nigeria but our battle is of the entire world. And the battle has just begun. It is going to be a fresh battle for you soldiers of Nigeria. Die you all in your rage.

“To you, President Buhari, very soon you will see us inside your home the presidential palace. You will hear from us right in there by the will of God. Abuja will hear from us very soon. We will demolish infidel and bring down the green white green and replace it with our flag. And under that flag, we shall worship Allah and we shall bring justice to all of you. Don’t think it is only this weapon that will aid us to destroy you but Allah will assist us to do this. Die you all in your rage. We are out to wage war on the world.”

Allegri: Juventus Need To Work On Defense

Featured Image

Massimiliano Allegri is not too happy with Juventus’ defense, and he is hoping for an improvement, as they prepare to defend their title.

Juventus allowed just 20 goals, as they claimed yet another Scudetto last season. And their defence is known for keeping clean sheets.

However, they’ve conceded in all of their preseason games, including the 3-2 win over West Ham.

“It was pleasing to see three of the frontmen get on the scoresheet this afternoon,” he said, in quotes reported by Juve’s official website.

“In Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic, Simone Zaza and Gonzalo Higuain, we boast four top-class strikers plus there’s Marko Pjaca, who can play both as a forward and a midfielder.

“One aspect of our game, however, that we need to put right between now and the start of the campaign is that of tightening up at the back, as we have now conceded in all four of our pre-season friendlies.”

Juve have recruited Medhi Benatia from Bayern Munich this off-season to complement Italy’s Euro 2016 trio of Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini.

They still have friendlies against Espanyol and Cologne to come next weekend, before kicking off their Serie A campaign against Fiorentina the following Saturday.

In an exclusive chat with Sunday Scoop, popular Nollywood actress and producer, Uche Jombo, said before she got married five years ago, she never dated anybody that lived in Nigeria.

When asked how it feels being married to a man who lives in America, the mother of one said the feeling was not strange as she never dated any man that lived in Nigeria.

“Before I got married, I had always dated people who lived outside Nigeria. As a result, being married to someone who lives abroad does not seem bizarre. I didn’t plan to marry someone who lives abroad. Rather, it just happened.”

She advised ladies not to be pressurized into getting married. “Marry because you know this is what you want to do once in your lifetime.

You have to be married to someone you can do everything with. Don’t marry because people say it is time to get someone. Get married for yourself. The pressure today will not be worth the ache tomorrow.”

Newspapers should avoid writing false stories else they become doubtful source of information.

Once people begin to doubt you, you are literally finished. Stick with facts.

West Ham Sign Cresswell Replacement In Masuaku

Featured Image

West Ham have completed the signing of defender, Arthur Masuaku from Olympiakos for an undisclosed fee. With the left back signing a four-year contract.

The Hammers have been keen on signing a new left back, after Aaron Cresswell was ruled out for four months with injury.

They are reported to have held an interest in Inter’s Davide Santon, but concerns over his fitness saw them switch their interest to Frenchman Masuaku.

“It’s a big honour for me to be part of this club,” said Masuaku. “I was speaking with my agent about some opportunities, but when he told me about West Ham and also the coach, I didn’t think twice, so in my mind, it was West Ham.

“For me, the Premier League is the biggest league in the world. When I was 18, my target was to come here, so now I am here, I have to prove myself to the fans and to the team so that I can play for this big club.”

The Lille-born defender started at Valenciennes before moving to Greece in 2014, winning back-to-back titles with Olympiacos.

And he is also excited at the prospect of playing with countryman Dimitri Payet at the Olympic Stadium.

He added: “To be able to play with players like Dimitri Payet, it’s going to be crazy! I can’t wait to play with him and also all the rest of the team.”

ICYMI: Mancini Gets The Axe From Inter

Featured Image

With the Serie A just two weeks away, Inter Milan have announced the sacking of Roberto Mancini as its manager.

The former Manchester City manager was sacked by Inter’s Chinese owners, after the 6-1 heavy loss to Tottenham in a preseason friendly.

The 51-year-old had been under immense pressure at the club, owing to his failure to qualify for UCL.

Mancini could be replaced by former Ajax manager, Frank de Boer. Inter won only one of five preseason friendlies.

“Inter would like to place on record its thanks to Roberto for the work carried out with the team since joining in November 2014,” said a club statement.

“Last season the club led Serie A until the Christmas break, ending the season in fourth place and qualifying for the UEFA Europa League.

“We thank Roberto for the work and commitment he has shown the club over the past 20 months.”

Mancini, who guided Inter to three Serie A titles between 2004 and 2008, returned to the club for a second spell in November 2014.

The former Manchester City boss led Inter to eighth during the 2014-15 campaign and brought in a number of big signings last summer in an attempt to lead the club back into the Champions League.

However, Inter finished 13 points behind third-placed Roma and were also beaten by Juventus on penalties in the Coppa Italia semi-finals.

For Saying ‘AIDS IS A BISEXUAL DISEASE’, Christopher Biggins Was Evicted From Celebrity Big Brother

Featured Image

English actor and television presenter, Christopher Biggins, was booted out of the Celebrity Big Brother (CBB) house last week after his upsetting views on bisexuality and AIDS.

The Sun Online gathered that in scenes aired during Friday’s show, Biggins described ‘AIDS as a bisexual disease’.

That comment was the final straw for officials of the CBB – after he had earlier made a highly offensive Nazi joke in front of Jewish housemate Katie Waissel.

During the show he told Renee:

“Gays had been really badly treated for so long. Then came a period where they were respected.

“But suddenly, a killer disease then came along which was attributed to homosexuals – but it was actually a bisexual disease.

“What the government didn’t realise is that there were bisexuals out there who were having sex with those people.

“They then brought it back to their families over here and in America. That’s how it became a worldwide disease. Whoever investigated AIDS f***ked up big time.”

Hours later it was discovered he had lost his place in the house.

Speaking on the decision to evict him a CBB spokesperson said:

“Big Brother has taken the decision to remove Christopher Biggins from the Celebrity Big Brother house.

“Since entering Big Brother, he has made a number of comments capable of causing great offence to housemates and the viewing public.

“Big Brother does not tolerate offensive language capable of causing widespread offence. “Christopher Biggins has left the house.”

Meanwhile, the entertainment legend who was scheduled to make an apology live on air today, August 8, 2016 pulled out of it.

A tweet by This Morning’s official account read:

“Unfortunately, @onebiggins can no longer join us in the studio, but he has given us a special message which we will read out on today’s show.”

In the message read out by This Morning’s showbiz correspondent Rylan Clark, Christopher said:

“Once again I wanted to say how very sorry and shocked I am about what’s happened.

“I’ve been so moved by some of the amazing and kind support I’ve been getting since being removed from the Big Brother house. Thank you.

“For now I’m taking some time out to be with loved ones, I hope you all understand. Love Biggins.”

Kanye West Was Furious At Kylie Jenner’s ‘Secret’ Puma Deal – Kim Admits

Kim Kardashian West has admitted that Kylie Jenner was in the doghouse with Kanye West over Puma deal

“Kanye was seriously upset at the fact that Kylie had booked a deal with Puma without talking to him about it first, because she had worked with him on his Adidas line,” Kim said, adding that he (Kanye) didn’t know about Kylie Jenner’s Puma deal until the shoot was already taking place.

On the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim revealed how the couple were upset with Kylie and mother Kris Jenner, who had brokered the deal, saying:

“Kanye had Kylie walk in his first two shows, he really believed in her as part of his brand.

“I get my mom’s job is to get us deals, but everything has to be really carefully played out and I feel like this was a conflict of interest. I just wish my mom spoke about it wish us. We should all be able to communicate so we don’t step on anyone’s toes.”

The 18-year-old reality star signed with the sports brand back in February despite her brother-in-law insisting “1000%” there wouldn’t be a deal just days before, having had Kylie walk in his own line for Adidas in the past.

When Kim confronted her mum about it, she said:

“I run a business and the biggest part of my business it to pay attention to everyone involved … and the best first for each one of my clients. Sometimes it’s about a business decision.”

Kim responded:

“Sometimes when you’re dealing with family, it’s not really about a business decision. She was the model that he wanted. I just would have liked the heads up. He had no idea until the shoot was already happening.”

In the end, Kris understood where Kim was coming from and in return, Kim was happy having gotten it all sorted out.

MEND Desire To Assassinate Me – Jonathan

Featured Image

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has denied allegations of involvement in promoting militancy in the Niger Delta, stating that the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) has been contracted with the mind of assassinating him.

READ ALSO: Not Tony Stark: Olisa Metuh Denies Sponsoring Niger-Delta Avengers

The denial came on the heels of a report by an online news medium,  that a splinter group of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), which goes by the name Reformed Niger Delta Avengers (RNDA), had alleged that some chieftains of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), including Jonathan, Akpabio, Metuh and others were sponsors of the group.

Read statement below:

Our attention has been drawn to a malicious claim by a shadowy group which calls itself the Reformed Niger Delta Avengers (RNDA) to the effect that many notable Ijaw and other Niger Delta leaders and elders, especially those perceived not to be too close to the powers that be, are the alleged sponsors of the current crises in the Niger Delta.

For the avoidance of doubt, we are fully convinced that such an idiotic claim is too cheap a narrative, a facile contrivance so badly concocted that any discerning mind would easily see through its disingenuous and duplicitous nature.

Since it is not in our place to speak for all those named in the obvious fabrication, we are only intervening to the extent that its hidden intent poses a violent threat to the life of former President Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR, a committed patriot who the Almighty God has given the grace and good health to rededicate his life to the service of humanity, after serving his dear nation as President to the best of his abilities.

We are also not bothered by this baseless accusation, contented that we are not the only ones conversant with Jonathan’s widely-acknowledged sincere disposition to peace, non-violence and better human community.

We are however seized by the feeling of déjà vu occasioned by the resurrection of one dim character masquerading as ‘Cynthia White’, who had in the past served as the spokesperson for a notorious group that had all along shown its hand to be going after the life of Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

Nigerians could recall that in 2007 when Jonathan emerged as the running mate to the late President Umar’ Yar’Adua in the People’s Democratic Party during that year’s presidential election, this very group invaded Yenogoa with hundreds of militants in an effort to assassinate him. Jonathan was only saved then by the spirited efforts of the combined forces of determined security men, who gallantly repelled the attack.

Let us also not forget that members of this same group later invaded and bombed Jonathan’s compound in Otuoke, Bayelsa State, on a night he was scheduled to attend to an important matter in his country home. He was only saved by the grace of God, who in His infinite mercy created intervening factors that prevented Jonathan from sleeping in his country home that night.

Do we need to remind anybody that the so called Cynthia White is the self declared spokesperson of the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND), a violent and murderous underground group led by one Henry Orkah, which has not hidden its intention to destroy the former President?

The unfortunate event of 1st October 2010 in Abuja at the Eagle Square during the Independence Day celebrations for that year, being presided over by the former President, bears out this conviction. It would be recalled that after an attempt to bomb the venue, with the mind of assassinating Jonathan and possibly other high profile local and international dignitaries in attendance, was thwarted by tight security deployment, the terrorists exploded their bombs in other parts of Abuja, resulting in the death of many innocent Nigerians. It is no secret that following that incident, Orkah, the leader of MEND was arrested, tried, convicted and jailed in South Africa over terrorism charges by the security authorities of that country. He remains in a South African prison till date while his associates in Nigeria are still being held in Kuje prison, Abuja.

We, therefore, have no doubt in our mind that MEND, as a group contracted to go after Jonathan with the mind of assassinating him, is yet to abandon this criminal and ignominious craving. It is in this light that we view the purported statement issued by ‘Cynthia White’ as not only a sadistic continuation of this sick desire, but also a futile attempt to instigate the Federal Government to needlessly go after the former President.

Those who have been following the unsavoury developments in some parts of the country since the last general elections, especially the ones that held in the South South states, would have noticed that the nefarious MEND, their pay masters and other unscrupulous elements in the region, have been striving fruitlessly to exploit the ensuing confusion, by surreptitiously working for the fulfillment of its yet-to-be declared political agenda. It is our considered view that the statement in question is an off-shoot of that ignoble plan; this time plotting to rubbish and torpedo the ongoing peace efforts in the region.

While we believe that God Almighty would continue to protect the former President against the evil machinations of these undesirable elements, we wish to also point out that Jonathan is prepared to do anything within the limit of our laws to ensure that he enjoys a well-deserved peaceful post-Presidential life without any hindrance.

We are not under any illusion that more accusations and allegations of this nature would not be hurled Jonathan’s way in the future, especially as his enemies appear to have perfected the act of throwing mud each time his profile gains added impetus and acclaim. But we are very positive that he can never be fazed by such negative energy. Like the eagle, Dr. Ebele Goodluck Jonathan will continue to soar over his traducers.

Signed

Ikechukwu Eze

Media Aide to Dr. Goodluck Jonathan

According to the Police Chief, any police officer, who violates the code of conduct, would not be spared.

He continued: “We are going to be very tough on our police officers who go outside our code of conduct. When I took over and told people that I am declaring my assets, it looked surprising, people took it as if I was doing something magical but that is what the law says. You cannot work without declaring your assets.

“You must declare your assets and as policemen we are the ones checking the vices, so we cannot be part of those that are increasing the vices in the society and I still stand by my word.

“I have declared my assets even before and after I became IG of police because it is a constitutional requirement. I believe every police officer should do that.

“What kills most Nigerians is lack of contentment; you will see somebody amassing wealth that he and even his grandchildren do not need throughout their life time. I don’t know what drives people like that. For me, I believe that with contentment, you will have peace of mind.”

Confirming the incident, the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, Kogi State, Mr. Ugboma Ugochukwu, revealed that the victims were buried at the accident scene.

 He said, “The accident happened around 6.30am on Friday at Alewu village, along the Lokoja-Abaji Expressway. It involved a fully-loaded commercial bus which was coming from Lagos and heading towards Kano State and a jeep, which was coming from Abuja and heading towards Benin.

“The two vehicles had a head-on collision, which was caused by one of the vehicles that was driving against the traffic. Speeding was also responsible for the accident, but it was primarily caused by violation of traffic rules. The accident led to an explosion, which resulted in the death of 16 of the passengers. They were burnt beyond recognition and were buried in the village.

“The lone survivor was rushed to a hospital in Koto-Karfi, where he was treated and discharged.”

Generator Smog Kills Policeman And His NSCDC Mistress In Anambra

Featured Image

An Inspector of the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) and his lover, a member of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), were found dead in an apartment belonging to the policeman at Ezinifite Okpuno village in Awka South LGA, Anambra State on Sunday.

It was gathered that the father-of-three and Ifeoma, a mother of five, died from the fumes of a power generating set, while having a jolly time together.

It was also learnt that the policeman’s family lived in Lagos, while Ifeoma’s family stayed in Awka.

A source who seems to be on the know, revealed that Ifeoma had told her husband that she was attending a church vigil, only to end up in her lover’s house, nearby.

The eyewitness said:

“The woman spent the night with her police lover, but both did not wake up until a labourer, who was to work for the deceased policeman, came in the morning and discovered their bodies. On discovering the bodies, the labourer rushed out and alerted neighbours.

“The neighbours followed the labourers to the apartment and confirmed the incident before a relative locked up the compound to prevent the large number of people trooping access to the apartment.”

Another source said:

“There was the sound of a small generator throughout the night in his apartment. But at about 4am, it went dead; maybe the fuel got finished.”

“The policeman lived on the third floor of the house. As a policeman, he hardly stayed around, but each time he was around, everybody would know, because he would run his generator all through the night. Everybody called him ‘Officer’, but I think he was an inspector.”

Speaking on the incident, the Anambra State Police Public Relations Office, ASP Nkeiru Nwode said:

“I have not yet been fully briefed on the story. As soon as I get the details, I will communicate with you, please.”

Djokovic And Williams Sisters Out In Rio: The Rio 2016 Olympics provided one of the biggest upsets in recent tennis as world number 1 Novak Djokovic was eliminated in the first round.

“Delpo was the better player and he deserved to win. That’s sport,” Djokovic told reporters. “In the decisive moments, he just came up with some extraordinary tennis and I have to congratulate him.
“It’s very sad and disappointing to go out of the tournament this early but I am glad that a good friend of mine, who has struggled with injuries, has won. It’s one of the toughest losses in my life and career. The wounds are still fresh.”
Djokovic’s surprising loss came only hours after Serena and Venus Williams were surprisingly eliminated in the first round of the women’s doubles by Czech duo of Lucie Safarova and Barbora Strycova.
“It was a really tough match for us and a really tough draw, but we’re used to tough draws,” Serena, who is still in the women’s singles competition, told reporters. “We honestly didn’t play our best whatsoever tonight. We played terrible and that basically showed in the results.
“I don’t know why. I wasn’t playing the way I needed to play, I wasn’t crossing the way I needed to cross, it was what it was. I wouldn’t say it’s devastating. We have a chance to compete for our country, we did the best that we can. It was a lot of fun and we will always remember these moments and these matches and at the end of the day I think that’s what matters most.”

“That’s right, ladies. I got to put this chocolate in the freezer!” Hart recently joked with ET. “That’s right, it’s over. So if you wanted a piece, you better take that and put it in your pocket because you can’t get it, because it’s happening Aug. 8. That’s right.”

Hart explained that he gave Parrish a budget and is happy to go along with anything she wants, so long as it doesn’t go over the spending plan.

“He said he is leaving it in my hands,” Parrish told ET in January. “He just wants me to be happy, and it will be both of our day.”

The wedding is expected to be fully packed with celebrities as the Central Intelligence star walks down the aisle on Monday, August 8, 2016.

#ProjectFame9.0 Nomination Show 2: Contestants Take A Dig At Pop Music

Featured Image

After the elimination of Favour from #ProjectFame9.0, the remaining contestants knew they had to bring their A-game if they had any hopes of remaining in the competition.

The second nomination show kicked off with the hosts Joseph Benjamin and Bolanle Olukanni giving a rundown of what happened at the elimination show. With 15 contestants remaining in the running for top position in #ProjectFame9.0, they were all ready to showcase their vocal prowess not only for the entertainment of the audience but to also ensure their survival in the academy.

The night’s performances was taken from the pop music genres and all the contestants brought a new and different angle to the songs. The first person to step on stage for the night was Mirabel who sang This Is What You Came For by Calvin Harris and Rihanna. She was closely followed by Dapo who gave a good account of himself as he sang Sorry by Justin Bieber.

Gabriel was next on stage and he sang Shawn MendesTreat You Better, just as Yusuph and Solomon sang One Dance by Drake and Sugar by Maroon 5 respectively.

Benjamin gave a good rendition of If I Ever Fall In Love by Pentatonix and Jason Derulo while Winner sang Bad Blood by Taylor Swift. Okiemute performed Beyoncé’s Hold Up before Oluchi took the stage to sing Send My Love by Adele.

Elizabeth got to work with Work by Rihanna, just as Eli gave a good account of himself with Charlie Puth’s One Call Away. Steve performed Chris Brown’s With You, Kitay sang Cold Water by Major Lazer while the last contestant on stage, Pere performed Nick Jonas’ Jealous.

The crowd obviously enjoyed the performances as they cheered the contestants but the judges however were not satisfied with some of them and faulted the understanding of the song materials by some of the contestants, emotions and their stage presence.

As a result of this, five of the contestants: Mirabel, Yusuph, Solomon , Winner and Pere were placed on probation. This means that the five contestants will be banking on the viewers votes, judges, the faculty, their fellow contestants and most importantly, themselves if they hope to remain in the competition.
