Buhari Welcomes Recovery Of Another Chibok Girl

Featured Image

President Muhammadu Buhari has welcomed the recovery of another Chibok school girl, Rakiya Abubakar, in the Alagarno area of Damboa Local Government Area of Borno.

Boko Haram Releases 21 Chibok Girls To Nigerian Gov’t

Buhari made his feelings known in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Thursday.

He noted that the recovery had raised renewed hope that the other captured girls would one day be reunited with their families, friends and community.

The president also commended the military for the diligent investigation which led to the recovery of Rakiya and urged them to continue in the spirit with which they cleared the Sambisa Forest of terrorists.

Buhari assured that the Nigerian Government would continue to do all within its powers to assist the military in locating the rest of the girls and eradicating the menace of terrorism in Nigeria.

With the recovery of Rakiya Abubakar, the rescued Chibok girls, in the last four months, are now 23.

It would be recalled that about 276 school girls were abducted when members of Boko Haram terrorists stormed their boarding school in Chibok town in Borno in 2014.

No fewer than 50 had escaped in the initial days after the abduction, while another one, Amina Ali, was found roaming around the Sambisa forest with a baby and a man who claimed to be her husband.

The Federal Government in October successfully secured the release of the 21 Chibok school girls after months of negotiation with their captors.

Buhari had pledged to ensure the release of the remaining girls in captivity.

Album Review: Gbagyi Child – Bez

Featured Image

Bez Idakula wowed the world with Supersun, his Cobhams Asuquo produced 2011 debut disc that made the case at the time for a wider embrace of broader musical tastes and at the same time, supplied proof that a different kind of alternative music exists, one that is rooted in home culture and created to be performed live.

Five years later and Bez is back with Gbagyi Chid, an eloquently expressed product of musical introspection that reveals the growth of both the man and the musician at the centre of the project. In the years in between his albums, Bez has hit the road touring and performing in spaces around the globe, gotten married and started a family, and he brings to bear all of these experiences in crafting Gbagyi Child.

Swirling, expressive, poetic, lush and bursting to the seams with its influences, Gbagyi Child is that record you didn’t know you needed, a warm embrace and homage to growing up. The disc houses some of Bez’s most impressive song writing and he stretches himself, perhaps in the ever conscious bid to stake out more fans for himself.

On You suppose know, a groovy, doo-woopy jubilant letter of reiteration to an insecure loved one that was earlier serviced to radio, Bez records in Pidgin English and for the remix, he invites Yemi Alade to brush up his street credentials and help him make the cross over more effectively. This is a move that is understandable but not exactly necessary.

Check out 360Hawt: Bez ft. Yemi Alade – You Suppose Know (Remix)

If to say starts out with melodious drums and Bez starts out with English before launching into Pidgin for the chorus. In structure, If to say plays like a companion piece to You suppose know, and has Bez pining for a love interest instead.

For the loyal ones who have stuck by his side the last half decade, there is the lukewarm but catchy My Baby, the album’s lead single and the slow burn of There’s a fire, a high water mark that surely represents some of the best recording the Gbagyi child has ever had the honour of doing.

So much is being made of Bez’s pilgrimage to his roots, Karu in Nasarawa state precisely, where he and his producer, Cobhams Asuquo documented live musicians at work in their attempt to capture the sound and spirit of the region.

READ Concert Review: With Bez Live,The Gbagyi Child Shows Us How It’s Done

Proof of these journeys are littered all over the album, but never more so than on the closer, Home to Gbagyi. Here Bez cannot quite help himself as he conjures up a world of sand and dust and paints an indelible portrait of what home must be like for him. The lyrics may veer into poetic sap (everybody has a smile/and crying is for the little child) as he appreciates the lure of rural communities but the instrumentation on the song is top notch. The sounds of drums, flutes and piano strings complement Bez’s clear, affecting vocal presence. Zamuce is fun, fast and just a bit schizophrenic as it switches gears gradually, till Bez is stretching his voice to its limit while keeping up with the ever rising fever pitch of the recording.

What isn’t advertised as much is that the record is really an alternative/soft rock confection that pays homage to the oughties, a period when the genre was in full bloom. Breathe, the duet with fast rising Simi is a soothing, guitar heavy breath of fresh air that blows so gently, it feel like home. Hold you down quietly recalls The Lumineers’ Grammy winning Ho Hey and is expected to elicit positive responses at live performances.

Speaking of live performances, Eternity is as stadium arena rock as can be done in these parts, with its marching band drums, background chants and refrains of Eternity be mine. Just for Mary is recorded in the style of jazz standards of old and Bez is in terrific form as he situates himself comfortably in the material and excels easily.

The influences that Gbagyi Child borrows from are pretty obvious but what the record lacks in originality, it more than makes up for in terms of execution, faithfulness to source material and Bez’s burning, compulsive desire to express himself in the most professional of terms. There are no half measures here and with Cobhams Asuquo masterminding the creative process, this comes as no surprise.

Gbagyi Child is music done the way it should be, the way you’d forgotten it could be done. Quality stuff.

Album Name: Gbagyi Child
Artist: Bez
Year: 2016

Thugs, Prostitute Pounce On Herdsman Suspected To Be A Boko Haram Member

Featured Image

A Fulani herdsman, who appeared to have displayed some tendencies of the notorious terror group Boko Haram, was descended on by a group of thugs – numbering seven – and a prostitute at a brothel known as Big Dafe, located along the East-West Expressroad, Ughelli, Delta State, in the early hours of Wednesday.

The herdsmen, Usman, who had visited the brothel to have fun, approached the prostitute, named Amaka, and paid her N5,000 with the intention of having an all night romp with her.

However, trouble was unleashed after his dagger fell out while he was trying to take off his clothing after paying the lady the money at about 1:30a.m.

A source who witnessed the incident told Vanguard Newspaper:

“While the man was taking off his clothing after paying the lady N5,000 at about 1:30a.m., his dagger fell out. On sighting his dagger, Amaka immediately raised alarm that he is a Boko Haram member, who wants to kill her.”

“Immediately the Aboki and the girl came out from the room, wife of the owner of the brothel ordered the thugs, who were playing a game of pool, to beat Usman and a male sympathiser, who was pleading on his behalf.”

Confirming the incident, a senior police officer at the Ughelli ‘A’ Division Police Station, revealed that the herdsman and the prostitute are in police custody, pending further investigation into the matter.

Buhari Approves Use Of Guns For Airport Security Personnel In Nigeria

Featured Image

The President Muhammadu Buhari led government has approved the use of arms and ammunition by airport security personnel.

FG Approves Firearms For FRSC Officials

This disclosure was made known by the Minister of State (Aviation), Senator Hadi Sirika, at the end of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday.

The minister said: “We are very serious about aviation security; just last week, the President approved that aviation security should bear arms. So, we are trying to make them take the form and shape of Transportation Security Administration (TSA) of the United States (U.S.) with K-9 dogs, handcuffs, the guards, the batons, light weapons, etc.

“The minister of interior is helping us in that regard with the directive of Mr. President. They are partnering with us and other stakeholders to keep our airports secure. All these will be unveiled at the next stakeholders meeting.”

Sirika also stated that the Federal Government will not be going back on the planned shutting down of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja – for six weeks for turn-around maintenance that would last for  for six months.

Preparation For The Closure Of Abuja Airport Begins

Alternatively, it has resorted to using Kaduna airport which it said is currently undoing renovation for the purpose.

He said: “The airport will be totally closed for six weeks, the construction and rehabilitation work is for six months. Within six months, there is a window of six weeks that the airport will be closed.

“It is important we inform you guys that whether we shut down now or not, the runway is on its way to shutting down itself. We are all witnesses to how Port Harcourt shut itself. The runway was folding

like mat, it was caving in like deep gully erosion and FAAN was busy patching it until one night it caved in. An Air France plane landed, it destroyed the landing gear and burst the tyres. After the repairs, the airport was closed for two and a half years until recently.

“Lest we forget, if at that time people had taken the appropriate action, probably they would have closed the airport for six weeks rather than two years. So it is extremely important that

when things are bordering on safety we don’t joke about human lives.

“The runway was designed for 20 years to cater for not more than 100,000 people per annum, today it is doing over five million persons per annum and has been there for 34 years.

“So, it is going for 14 years in excess of design. It is not a joke; we are a government and a very sensitive one for that matter. We would not just cause hardship or distortions to the economy for the heck of it. It is a very serious matter and for a very good reason.”

Wenger: Chelsea’s Loss Gives Arsenal Hope

Featured Image

Arsene Wenger has stated that Chelsea’s Loss at the hand of Tottenham has given Arsenal hope to get back in the title race.

Arsenal dropped points when they played a 3-3 draw against Bournemouth on Tuesday, dropping to fifth.

However, Chelsea’s 2-0 loss to Tottenham, ending their run of 13 consecutive wins puts Arsenal eight points behind Chelsea.

“It looks like Chelsea are still quite comfortable but when you are interrupted in a series of wins, it always raises hope for others. It means you have to restart again,” Wenger said at a news conference.

“I think it is an open league.

“The second part of the championship starts now. We know that January until May is the moment of truth for everybody. Who will come out of this race on top? It is very difficult to predict at the moment.”

Arsenal are fifth in the table and Wenger has acknowledged a top-four finish – and Champions League qualification – is by no means a guarantee.

“The battle for top four is tough for everybody,” he added.

“But at the start, you want to win the league and give absolutely everything to do it.

“But I agree, every year you have to function exactly the same, no matter who you are. First, get 40 points. After, fight to be in the top four and possibly fight to win the league.”

“This will help us confront and wage this war against our today’s Goliath and Pharaoh.”

“We now launch Operation Python Cry and hereby urge the Federal Government to release Kanu, Orji, Onwuka and other Biafra freedom fighters in jail. This must be done as quickly as possible on or before January ending, or else, all the pythons that are now dancing, will turn around and cry.” He said.

“And I said to him, ‘God said to me, don’t touch it for the first two years. Don’t go near it, just be praying for them and be watching, and be monitoring the things that are happening’.

“We love playing a part in helping a young man, who was working full-time in the Bentley factory until made redundant recently, whilst playing for Hednesford as well, become a professional footballer and now have – if he grabs his opportunity – a fabulous career ahead of him.”

It was revealed on Tuesday that both Crystal Palace and Sheffield Wednesday had been keeping tabs on Bramall over the last few months, but Chapman confirmed that only Arsenal agreed terms with Hednesford.

“Many clubs watched him and one or two had advanced levels of interest in him. But only Arsenal agreed terms with Hednesford that led to us and the player being granted permission to explore the move.

“Cohen Bramall has signed for us,” Wenger told Bein Sports.

“He’s an exceptional physical talent. I don’t think he’s ready, today, to play in Premier League but he has similarities to a young Ashley Cole.”

Southampton Plotting £17 Million Bid For Manolo Gabbiadini 

Featured Image

Southampton boss Claude Puel is plotting a £17m swoop for Napoli frontman Manolo Gabbiadini, the Daily Mirror reports.

A run of three Premier League defeats, during which they scored just two goals, appears to have forced the Saints boss into the transfer market.

And the Mirror claim 25-year-old Napoli striker Gabbiadini could be the man to supply the goals for Puel’s injury-hit and misfiring side.

Italy international Gabbiadini has previously caught the eye of Everton, with the Goodison side sending scouts to check on his progress.

Gabbiadini, 25, has previously played for Atalanta, Bologna and Sampdoria and finished runner-up in Serie A with Napoli last season, nine points behind Juventus.

He has scored twice so far this season.

Sacchi Backs Juventus To Win UCL

Featured Image

Legendary coach Arrigo Sacchi, who managed Italy and Milan has stated that he believes Juventus can win the UCL this season.

The Serie A giants have dominated Italy, claiming five successive scudettos and look set for another.

However, after finishing as runners up in the 2014-15 season of the UCL, they are looking to claim European success.

“I am certain this can be the right year for Juventus in Europe,” Sacchi said in an interview with La Stampa.

“If you look at the other big clubs on the continent, they are struggling. Just look at how Real Madrid had to scrape a victory in the Club World Cup in extra time. At the top of the Premier League are Chelsea and Liverpool, two teams who are not in the Champions League.

“Juve have everything it takes to win the Champions League: a fine coach, players and club. They just need to believe in themselves more.

“Over the last 40 years the Champions League has gone to those who dominate, apart from two or three exceptions. By dominate I mean that way of taking control of the game and believing in themselves more than the opposition.

“In Serie A, Maurizio Sarri’s Napoli are a joy to behold, while Roma always try to play attacking football, but Juve are on another level.

“The Bianconeri have this superiority in terms of confidence, rules and style that I don’t see anywhere else in Italy. In fact, looking further afield, I believe Juve to be one of the top two or three clubs in the world when it comes to organisation and vision for the future.”

Hull City Set To Appoint Marco Silva As New Manager 

Featured Image

Hull City have agreed a deal to make Marco Silva their new head coach, according to Sky Sports. An announcement is expected later today.

Silva will replace Mike Phelan, who was sacked on Tuesday after less than three months in charge.

The Portuguese coach held talks with the Tigers on Wednesday about becoming their third manager since they won promotion to the Premier League in May.

Silva, 39, has been out of work since the summer, when he quit Greek club Olympiakos for personal reasons after leading the club to a record 43rd domestic title in his sole season in charge.

The club confirmed on Wednesday that Phelan’s coaches Neil McDonald, Bobby Mimms and Stan Ternent have all left.

Marco Silva was born in Lisbon and played for youth teams in the city and just outside in Almada, just over seven miles away.

The former right-back began managing in 2011 and has been a free agent since the summer.

He has drawn comparisons to Jose Mourinho for achieving such success at a young age.
