There are very strong indications that five Boko Haram commanders were released in exchange for the freedom of the 82 Chibok schoolgirls.

Boko Haram: Nigeria Secures Release Of 82 More Chibok Girls

A top government official in Nigeria confirmed this to Associated Press.

It was gathered that the deal was negotiated by Mustapha Zanna, a barrister who is currently the proprietor of an orphanage in Maiduguri, but who was once the lawyer of the late founder of Boko Haram, Mohammed Yusuf. The deal also involved the Swiss government and the Red Cross.

The confirmation of the prisoner swap is coming barely a day after the schoolgirls were liberated after more than three years in captivity by the Islamic militants.

There was no immediate comment about the exchange from the Nigerian presidency or Boko Haram but President Muhammadu Buhari had on Saturday said that some Boko Haram prisoners had been released for the freedom of the schoolgirls.

The president did not however give details on the swap.

The Guardian quoted Shehu Sani, a Nigerian senator, as saying that lengthy negotiations took place in Switzerland and Sudan.

Sani told The Guardian that it was he who introduced Zanna, the chief negotiator, to the government and came up with a road map for the talks.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday received the 82 freed Chibok girls behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Later, Sani confirmed that they were five commanders, raising questions about why the group would exchange so many high-profile prisoners for a handful of members.

Asked whether the five commanders could strengthen Boko Haram, analyst Ryan Cummings thought not.

“I doubt it very much. Boko Haram is massively decentralised and is more an umbrella movement than a monolithic movement. Commanders could have a localised impact in areas that they return to, but it will have no wider impact,” he said.

It is understood that the freed young women were flown on Sunday by military helicopters from northeastern Nigeria to Abuja, the capital, where they met the president.

“They will face a long and difficult process to rebuild their lives after the indescribable horror and trauma they have suffered at the hands of Boko Haram,” said Pernille Ironside, acting representative of UNICEF Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is expected to take charge of Nigeria as President Buhari this evening left the county for London where he is scheduled to follow-up medical consultation with his doctors.

Mourinho: United Out Of Top Four Race

Featured Image

Jose Mourinho does not think United have an opportunity of qualifying for the champions league via the domestic route, after losing 2-0 to Arsenal.

Second half goals from Xhaka and Welbeck ended United’s run of 26 games unbeaten and marked Wenger’s first league win against Mourinho.

The Portuguese is now looking to the Europa League as the only way to end up in the UCL and they go into Thursday’s second leg at Old Trafford, with a 1-0 advantage.

“Yeah, all on the Europa League,” Mourinho, who rested several key players, told Sky Sports after he suffered his first Premier League defeat against Arsene Wenger.

“Like we did today, we tried to play for a result.

“You can tell me we didn’t play with the best players, or the first choice at the moment, but you can’t say we didn’t try to win the game. And that’s what we’re going to try and do in the next three Premier League matches.”

“I liked very, very much individual performances and I liked [them] collectively,” Mourinho said.

“We lost because we didn’t score and we had great chances to. They had the luck of [the first] goal.

“Apart from that, I cannot ask more from players who do not play one minute of football in the past seven weeks like Smalling and Mata. They were amazing the way they performed.

“The kid [Axel Tuanzebe], the same. I think he did an amazing job and I think Alexis [Sanchez] knows his name because the kid really played very well.

“It was difficult for me to manage the game because the players that I wanted to replace are the players that, in principle, start the game on Thursday.

“So, difficult to manage it but I think, in principle, the team was good, was organised, played to win and defended well.

“Arsenal were not better than us in my opinion but congratulations.”

Klopp: Liverpool’s Season Is Not Over

Featured Image

Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool’s season is not yet over after they played a goalless draw against Southampton.

Liverpool’s top four hopes is hanging by the ropes, they have two matches left to play against West Ham and Middlesbrough.

However, Klopp is adamant his team will not give up in their bid to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

“It was good enough to win, but it was a difficult game,” he said after the full-time whistle.

“Southampton played really unlike them, they came here looking for a point, so I am fine with how we defended over the 90 minutes because they did not create anything other than one or two counterattacks.

“We had a hard job to do playing against 10 deep-defending players. We had our moments, but you need a bit of luck. We should have done, of course, a few things better.

“It’s a point more. It doesn’t feel in this moment like a point more, but it is. Now we’re 70 (points), and if anybody thinks our season is finished…

“Two weeks ago we didn’t have it in our own hands, last week we had it in our own hands, now we don’t, that’s obviously not too clear.”

Newcastle Win Sky Bet Championship

Rafael Benitez did not just lead Newcastle United to the Premier League, he also won the Sky Bet Championship.

The Toon beat Barnsley 3-0, with goals from Perez, Mbemba and Gayle scoring for Benitez’ side.

Benitez has insisted from the start that winning the championship is not the priority, but Newcastle have done just that.

Newcastle were without Jamaal Lascelles and winger Matt Ritchie. And Isaac Hayden had to play in centre back, but he had to leave the field after sustaining a head injury.

The Toon were disjointed in the first 15 minutes, but Christian Atsu was an inspiration as Perez opened the scoring in the 23rd minute.

Mbemba added the second after the break, before substitute Dwight Gayle killed it off in the 90th minute.

Bayelsa Averts Teachers’ Strike, Pays April Salary

Featured Image

The government of Bayelsa has averted a planned three-day warning strike by teachers in the state after the payment of April salary for primary school teachers in the state.

The state chapter of Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) had planned to proceed on a warning strike to press for payment of up to seven months salary arrears.

While speaking with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yenagoa on Sunday, Dr Agatha Goma, Bayelsa Commissioner for Local Government Administration, said the ministry had met with the teachers union to avert the strike.

She also lauded the primary school teachers for their patience and assured that the state government would implement all agreements reached with their union.

Goma attributed the delay in the payment of the salaries to paucity of funds due to dwindling revenue as a result of economic downturn.

The commissioner explained that the local government share of the Paris Club refunds was deployed to the payment of salaries of primary school teachers.

According to her, as part of government demonstration of good faith, local council workers are now getting full salary as against half salaries paid last year.

The commissioner said the state government would continue to work with the local authorities to find permanent solution to the lingering financial crisis in the councils.

Goma said government was aware of the critical roles of teachers in the ongoing educational revolution in the state and would not toy with their welfare.

“Teachers welfare is pivotal to Gov. Seriake Dicksons revolution in the education sector. There is no deliberate effort to undermine teachers welfare.

“The issues of half salary in 2016 and delays in payment arose because of the recession in the Nigerian economy.

“But the teachers should be assured that government is concerned about their welfare and everything is being done to find a permanent solution to this challenge,’’ Goma said.

They Want To Kill President Muhammadu Buhari – Asojo Olasunkanmi Samuel

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

Following my inability to get out of bed early today, I tossed my books aside, pick up my phone and dashed off to social media. After a while of reading some news feeds (react to some that caught my fancy), I turned on my browser to read Newspapers (online) and blogs (for gossips – base on doctors recommendations). One cannot help but sigh and shake head at the various issues, news and articles published on the numerous newspaper websites this morning. Some were build-up stories of numerous sagas and face-off, while few others are just new to the public domain.

This article was written by Asojo Olasunkanmi Samuel. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

In much grief and concern, I dropped my phone for a while and was lost in thought for some minutes. I was thinking about the ‘state of health of the Aso Villa and her chief occupant’. For three weeks now President Muhammadu Buhari has been absent from several regular meetings which he chairs, official and state functions. He has consecutively missed the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meetings and was not seen last Friday for the Juma’at service – this is quite unusual!

Last week the honorable Minister of (propaganda) Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed was quick and ill-advised to informed worried country-men about the health condition of the President. In his words, the “President is fine… he just decides to work from home” – well, being fine is relative. For weeks now (aside from the manage appearance on Tuesday) the President has not been to his office – No one has seen the President in public. It is now clear as day, even ‘the lame in the head’ knows that all is not well or ‘fine’ with our President. It is either the ‘enemy of the state or the beneficiaries of his state of health that will not tell the truth now because no true friends lie to each other- no matter what!

Few Nigerians that have been privileged to either be or work in the Villa knows it take just about 5 minutes for the President to walk from his apartment to his office. So if the Minister was true to his words and we are to believe them, why can’t the ‘fine’ (Healthy) man take just a five minute walk?This calls for serious concern!

Expectedly, the degree of sycophancy in the Villa has been heightened like never before. The enemy of Buhari who portray themselves as friends swoops in day in day out, not to tell him the truth but to secure their interest. The ‘presidency’ is a cabal that is headed by the most powerful man in Aso Rock Mamman Daura, an uncle to President and the controversial Chief of (stay) Staff, Abba Kyari. The cabals that flood the villa know what the stand to gain if Buhari remain in Nigeria, sick or healthy.

The last time Buhari was gone for 59 days they knew what loss they suffered. The power structure shifted from the cabal and some few northern elements to Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo. They were temporarily out of job and business as a result of the President’s absence in the villa. So instead of saving this man they would rather let him ‘import the best brains and equipment’ to the villa for treatment – good riddance!

The President is suspected to be suffering from diseases affecting his digestive system which makes him feeble and not active enough for the vigorous workload embedded with the office of the President. These people as against advice of his British doctors frustrated plans to make him travel to complete his treatment abroad. The cabals, who are rather interested in taking the life of the President, orchestrated a cover-up so as to ensure the true state of the President health is kept secret, because if this is made public, Buhari will be advise (if not coerce) to seek medical attention immediately and they will lose grip of power once again.

Few days ago, the overzealous CSO to the President singlehandedlyexpelled the Punch reporter attached to the villa because he was allegedly trying to raise brows on the state of the President’s health. What he failed to know was that, rather than sweeping the matter under the carpet (a routine duty) he raised dust on the issue. The controversy trailing the Punchman exit of the villa made Nigerians more inquisitive as to what this man (CSO) stand to gain if they (Nigerians) don’t know the truth and or what is really the true state of health of our President.Earlier this week, insiders in the presidency hinted SaharaReporters that the President is having serious difficulty in eating and drinking.

“three insiders in the presidency have told SaharaReporters that President Muhammadu Buhari is being fed intravenously as he has had severe difficulty eating and drinking fluids for several days” as published on Sahara Reporters website. Due to this new development, the President is too weak to leave his official residence to attend official functions.
In consonance with my earlier stance, even the ‘lame in the head’ knows that all is not well with the President!

As a result of this development, the cabal comprising of aides, family members and party giants (leaders) has taken up the structure indirectly issuing presidential orders and directives, ensuring their business is alive. Majority of them are now known as the Presidency, which is why the embattled SGF sarcastically quizzed,‘who is the presidency?’

There is nothing to be ashamed of if the President handlers can come out and tell Nigerians the truth; enough with slim-fitted truth. Nigerians handle it quite alright when he left the shores of this country for 59days when they initially told us he went for holiday (the story later changed anyways). There is no crime in falling sick; everyone does at one time or the other. So Nigerians will move on rather than castigate him for taking ill – who don’t fall sick?

It is believed in some quarters that both the polity and the economy fared better when the President was away and the qualified Vice President took on the mantle of leadership. In acting capacity, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo did quite alright; everyone (except the cabals of course!) was impressed by the way he handled the affairs of the country and the way he never kept President Buhari in the dark on issues.

I know the President cannot see or read this, but the (presidency) movers and shakers of the polity can and will. So I advise rather than continue to allow some few privileged Nigerians act in his stead, the President should write to the National Assembly about the state of his health (and be sincere about it), informing them of his plans to travel to seek medical treatment as well as handing over the ‘Presidencyin acting capacity’ to the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo. Let Buhari go and take care of himself. If they truly love him, let them seek ways for him to go abroad to see his doctors and return in due time when he is ‘fine’ – no matter how short or long that may be.

Nigeria needs Buhari now than ever. He has started this reformation he must surely see it to a logical end. Yes! I have my reservations by the process he handled issues but if this man never became the President,all we’ll do is to keep assuming and imagining the kind of mess we are in as a Nation. The world is watching in anticipationof the true change he and his party promised Nigeria about two years ago. He can’t do this on a sick bed or in the hospital, not even indirectly with the help of cronies and cabal. WE NEED OUR PRESIDENT BACK ON HIS FEET.

Llorente Sure Of Swansea Survival

Featured Image

Fernando Llorente is very confident Swansea will stay afloat in the Premier League after entering safety with two games left.

Llorente scored his 13th goal of the season in the 1-0 win over Everton, sending Swansea above Hull City and out of the relegation zone.

Hull City lost 2-0 to Sunderland earlier in the day, and Swansea used that as an incentive to go for a win, with the Spanish striker scoring in the 29th minute.

“The Hull result was good for us, but we were only concentrating on our match,” said Spain striker Llorente.

“We played a good game with high intensity.

“In the second half, we did not play so well because there was a lot of tension in the players.

“But our confidence is up and if we continue in this way I think we will stay in the league.

“It depends on our results now, we have two matches left and if we win those we stay in the league.”

“This victory was so important for us and now we will be very focused this week on the Sunderland match,” said Llorente, who won two LaLiga relegation battles early in his career at Athletic Bilbao.

“Sunderland are a dangerous team now, they have nothing to lose and they will want to win at home against us.

“But we have to continue in this way, because as players we all know how important these games are.”

82 Chibok Girls: #BBOG, Dogara Hail Buhari, Security Agencies

Featured Image

The Bring Back Our Girls Group (BBOG) on Sunday commended the President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government and security agencies on the release of the 82 Chibok girls.

Boko Haram: Nigeria Secures Release Of 82 More Chibok Girls

The commendation was issued in a statement signed by the Convener of the group, Mrs Oby Ezekwesili  on Sunday in Abuja.

“The Nigerian Presidency has confirmed that 82 of our missing 195 Chibok Girls have been released via a negotiated deal.

”The efforts were through the combined effort of security agencies, the military, the government of Switzerland, the Red Cross, local and international NGOs.”

She said the group members were delighted by the good news which followed the release of 21 girls  in October 2016.

“We commend Mr President, the Federal Government and all the other partners for this heartwarming development.

“We are also glad that the statement from the Presidency makes a strong commitment to rescuing the remaining 113 of our Chibok Girls that are still captives of terrorists.”

Also commending the federal government, the Convener, Nigeria Young Women Political Forum, Hajia Zainab Mohammed, while chatting with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), lauded the efforts of the federal government in securing the release of the girls.

“I am excited that the Nigeria security team are doing all they could to ensure our daughters are brought back from captivity. I am happy for the parents who are being reunited with their loved ones.”

She said the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development in collaboration with Ministry of Health should work together to provide the girls and their parents adequate psychological counselling.

In the same vein, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara, has described the release of 82 Chibok school girls as delightful and heartening, while commending President Buhari for the feat.

Dogara, in a statement issued in Bauchi on Sunday by his media aide, Mr Turaki Hassan, also commended the efforts of security agencies and others involved in the negotiation process.

“Last month, the House of Representatives adopted a motion, urging the Executive to expedite negotiation for the release of the schoolgirls who remained in captivity, and the news of the release of 82 Chibok girls is delightful, to say the least.

“President Buhari has further proven that he is a man of his words, as he could have used the initial inaction by the previous administration as an excuse to not take action, but he didn’t.

“It has been said in many quarters that true leadership is defined not by apportioning blame, but by solving challenges irrespective of their genesis, and the President deserves all commendation for this feat.

“It is extremely gladdening that these 82 girls will finally be reunited with their families.

“It is my ardent hope that they get the required medical attention, and that the other girls and all others who remained in captivity are released soon,” Dogara said.

Milner Wants Revenge Against Southampton

Southampton beat Liverpool over two legs in the EFL Cup semifinal, to set up a final showdown with United which they lost. And Milner is not over the loss just yet.

Liverpool play Southampton today in the Premier League and Milner is targeting a victory.

“They cost us a cup final and that hurts,” Milner told Sky Sports. “They deserved it over the two games but we need to make sure we turn that around, put in a good performance and get one back on them!”

Liverpool have had problems against teams they should easily beat all season and Milner is expecting another tough encounter.

“[At this stage of the season] you’ve got teams trying to stay up or have nothing to play for so they play with a bit more freedom,” he said. “It can be a strange time of the season, every game can become really tough.

“We just want to pick up maximum points in our remaining games and we know we can do that. But every single game is tough. The best thing is to go out there and win our games, that’s all we can concentrate on.”

Herrera: Mourinho Believes In Us

Ander Herrera insists Jose Mourinho believes in his United players, as they look to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

United are in the driving seat in the match against Celta Vigo, with a win guaranteeing them a spot in the final of the Europa League. The winner qualifies for the Champions League next season.

The Red Devils are fifth on the table and four points behind the fourth position and despite Mourinho criticising a number of his players, Herrera believes the Portuguese has faith in them, as they try whatever means they have to qualify for Europe.

“The previous seasons here I was happy, but with Mourinho I have found the balance and stability,” Herrera said. “He gave me a lot of importance from the beginning of the season. I feel I always have his support. That helps you perform better when you have your manager behind you.

“It is not only me. Everyone in the team feels the support of the manager.

“We are ready. We are in a good moment. We are a difficult team to beat. It is not so easy to score against us.

“We know Arsenal are a very good team, they have some special players who can change the game in one moment, but we are really ready, ready to go there and try to win. That’s the way we have to face them.

“If we lose against Arsenal, we will have another final against Celta, another final against Tottenham, this season is like this and will be like this until the end.

“The only way is to try and win every game. You cannot select games. Every game is important. We are defending Manchester United, we are defending the greatest club in England, one of the greatest in the world. No excuses. Fight for every game.

“We have a lot of injuries at the moment, but we have players coming back. Sometimes in the difficult moments, you find the spirit and everyone works in the same way and pushes together.

“There are players who are not playing every week, but they can help us. We have a very good squad.

“All our focus is on the Champions League. If we get it, it will be a very good season.”

“Pulev Can Easily Beat A Novice Joshua”

Boxing promoter Kalle Sauerland is confident his boxer and mandatory challenger, Kubrat Pulev can beat Anthony Joshua, if he fights like a novice.

It is mandatory for Joshua to defend his IBF title against Pulev, but following his WBA ‘super’ win against Klitschko, his next opponent is unknown.

Sauerland confirmed Pulev is already in negotiations with Joshua for a fight. And the promoter felt the undefeated Brit showed his lack of experience against Klitschko.

“We saw two Anthonys – I saw possibly one of the most sensational heavyweights I have seen in many years, and I also saw a novice at times,” Sauerland exclusively told Sky Sports.

“If the novice turns up, Pulev will take care of business very easily. If the Anthony Joshua turns up that exploded in round 11 and half of round five, then it’s going to be a difficult night for anyone. The exciting thing about Anthony Joshua is that he is learning, and Pulev is someone who has beaten very good guys throughout his career.”

DSS Arrests Ifeanyi Ubah Over Alleged N11b Petrol Theft

The Department of State Services (DSS) has arrested multi-millionaire and Chairman of Capital Oil and Gas Limited, Ifeanyi Ubah, in connection with the theft of petrol worth more than N11 billion kept by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in its tank farm in Lagos.

The premier security service revealed the arrest on Saturday in a statement issued by spokesman, Tony Opuiyo.

Opuiyo described Ubah’s action as economic sabotage, with “capacity to negatively impact on national economy”.

He said: “In furtherance of his gimmicks to undermine the government and people of Nigeria, he has incited members of the Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD), a critical player in the downstream sub-sector of the Petroleum Industry, to refuse/stop the lifting of products.

“This is part of his plans to curry their sentiments and cause them to embark on strike and also stage protests in his favour with the ulterior motive of arm-twisting the NNPC to abandon the cause of recovering the stolen products. The implications of this on law and order is, in fact, a common knowledge. It is consequent upon this that the Service arrested and will prosecute him forthwith.

”The public is hereby reassured that the Service will collaborate with appropriate agencies to ensure that the mischievous activities of any person or group(s) to engage in illegal activities will not affect the effective distribution of products across the country. It will also support such agencies to bring to book individuals or companies involved in any criminal act that undermines the nation’s economy.”
