Boko Haram: “I Am Tired Of This Calamity; It’s Better I Die,” Says Shekau In New Video

Featured Image

The elusive leader of Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau, has said in a new video that he is tired of the calamity befalling his group, adding that “it is better I die and go to rest in paradise”.

“I am tired of this calamity; it is better I die and go to rest in paradise”, the shadowy leader said at the end of the 10-minute video, as he clearly could not hide his frustration on the continued hostility and loss of his fighters to government troops.

Boko Haram: Wife Of Shekau’s Chief Physician Surrenders To Nigerian Troops

In the video, Shekau, who was flanked by two hooded armed men, can be heard speaking chiefly in Hausa language.

He, however, remained defiant, bragging that he is still in Sambisa forest and still controls the territory, adding that the latest claim by the military that the group had been sent packing from Sambisa forest was false.

The Nigerian Army had on Saturday said it has completely defeated the Boko Haram insurgents.

The Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Rogers Nicholas, was quoted to have said that his troops under the operation DEEP PUNCH II, on Friday, dislodged and occupied the insurgents’ tactical ground “Camp Zairo”.

360nobs reported before then that twenty-six fighters of the dreaded death cult surrendered to the military authorities in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State.

The news came a few days after the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Yusuf Buratai, wrote a strong worded poem to Shekau, requesting him to either surrender his arms and embrace peace or face perdition.

Here’s the full text of the translated speech by the Boko Haram leader as published by Premium Times.

“I have no lengthy message to deliver except on the issue of worshiping God alone and serving Him without getting tired. Ours in not like that of the unbelievers whose worship is like the spider web. Just like one of the leaders of unbelievers, who is like an ape, was recently boasting that they have formed a joint force with Cameroonian forces to fight us.

“That they would not only chase us from Sambisa forest but also in all parts of Nigeria. So we too have declared that we do not want to see any Nigerian in Cameroon, in Chad, in Nigeria and even Benin Republic. So I call on our brethren in Abuja, in Lagos, in Benin, in Kaduna, where ever you find any Nigerian make sure you shoot him dead if he is deliberately against us; but if he is ignorant of our ways, teach him on how to understand our ways. This is our first message.

“It is not about approaching you, because that has already been done by our God.

“Our second message is to attack anyone who pledge to Nigerian his country, to be faithful, loyal and honest, and serve Nigeria. Anyone who believes in protecting the interest of Nigeria is our target. The one whose creed is to develop western education where infidels are trained is our enemy. Whoever that stands on any creed other than that of our Prophet Muhammad brought to us; the one that his great disciples followed, should know that he is our avowed enemy and if he confronts us we will fight him.

“In this job that we embarked upon, we are not going to boast too much about, but we pray that God should take our lives while on this struggle and not on any other thing else. May God help us on this belief.

“So you Nigerians especially the youth vigilante, we are going to fight you and that thing that drives you to pick up arms against us; we don’t care what they call you, be it Civilian-JTF or any kind of force. Just as you said you don’t want us on the face of Nigeria, so shall we too declare you persona non grata in Sambisa. Let anyone who has brains to think to avoid moving around Sambisa forest. Those of you the leaders of the troops will no longer have peace just like the way you think you have made here uncomfortable for us.

“And you General Rogers that is currently leading the troops and boasting that that you have take-over Sambisa and have rescued some women, why have you not rescued the police women that we abducted? You liar, why couldn’t you rescue them? You are busy deceiving with images of vehicles that we seized from you and abandoned for over three years and claiming that you have killed us. If you have killed us, why are we still alive?

“Oh you brethren of our holy creed, wherever you are, should rise up and fight for Allah. If you cannot do it there, then come over to our side and fight for the cause of Allah. You must know that whoever that fails to follow the teaching of the Holy Quran and Hadith cannot enter paradise. (In broken voice) Because the pattern of life in the world today is not Islamic. Wherever you are, even if you are in Saudi Arabia, and you have your gun, please stand up and fight, kill whoever you see that is not on our side.

Kidnap and bring them to us. Our course is to establish our caliphate and die doing that.

We may not be alive to see the caliphate but even if it comes to be after we have died, it is still a bonus on our side.

 “This is the message I have for you all. My name is Abubakar Shekau, the one that is an invincible enemy that you are fighting.

“That is our stand. I am tired of this calamity; it is better I die and go to rest in paradise.”

Emre Can has agreed to join Serie A champions Juventus in the summer, according to an agent in Italy.

Emre Can is out of contract at the end of the season and has apparently already discussed a move to Italy in the close season after four years at Anfield.

Liverpool are hopeful 24-year-old will decide to remain at the club despite failing so far to reach terms on a new deal.

Italian agent Federico Pastorello claims the Juventus deal is already tied up.

“Emre Can is a huge coup, even more so because he’ll arrive on a free transfer. Marotta and Paratici have done very well,” said Pastorello.

Alexis Sanchez To Pay £890,000 Plus Interest After Avoiding 16 Months Jail Sentence

Featured Image

Alexis Sanchez has been sentenced to 16 months in prison — but will not serve any time behind bars as it has been suspended.

Alexis Sanchez was found guilty of the defrauding the Spanish government of £890,000 in image rights, while playing for Barcelona between 2012 and 2013.

The Manchester United striker reached an agreement whereby he will repay the money owed, plus interest, and recognised that he falsified the sale of his image rights to a foreign company in order to avoid paying tax.

He has now accepted his sentence, and has two years to pay the money back, before the suspension is lifted and he will be forced to spend time behind bars.

Sanchez, 29, is the latest in a long line of high-profile players to have been prosecuted by the Spanish court for alleged tax evasion.

Sanchez is the fifth player to have been on the books of Barcelona and involved in a tax case in the Spanish courts.

In July 2016, Lionel Messi was found guilty of three counts of tax fraud, fined and given a suspended 21-month sentence.

Javier Mascherano pleaded guilty to concealing part of his earnings from image rights and was fined and given a suspended one-year sentence.

Samuel Eto’o and Brazilian defender Adriano also have open cases against them over alleged tax evasion in Spain.

RB Leipzig Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl Slams Naby Keita For Inconsistent Performance

Featured Image

Naby Keita has been slammed by RB Leipzig manager Ralph Hasenhuttl over his poor performances this season.

Naby Keita will move to Liverpool this summer in a massive £55million deal after bursting onto the scene last season.

Keita was Leipzig’s key performer as the minnows secured a second-place finish in their maiden Bundesliga campaign.

But the 22-year-old’s performances have taken a noticeable dip ever since his move to Liverpool was confirmed last August.

Hasenhuttl told Sport Bild: “Naby is not as consistent this year as last year. It’s important that he brings his expectations back to normal levels.

“I’m not one who wants to motivate with fear. I don’t immediately get the whip out in the classic sense and I don’t kick the players non-stop.”

Leander Dendoncker Speaks About His Failed West Ham Deadline Day Transfer

Featured Image

Leander Dendoncker has admitted a move to West Ham would have been the ideal “next step” in his career after a proposed Deadline Day move from Anderlecht failed to materialise.

Leander Dendoncker was a target for Hammers boss David Moyes, and assistant manager Stuart Pearce scouted the 22-year-old.

However London Stadium officials failed to agree a deal with the Brussels outfit, who lost captain Sofiane Hanni to Spartak Moscow last month.

“If deals still have to be arranged in the evening on January 31, there is little chance that there will be a breakthrough,” Dendoncker told Het Laatste Nieuws.

“West Ham seemed to me, however, a nice club to take the next step in my career.”

But after Hanni left Anderlecht I resigned myself to the fact they would certainly not let me go as well.

“Unlike last summer, I did not spend the whole time hanging on the phone.

“Back then I was talking to my agent every day. He told me to be patient and said something would be sorted out.

I was constantly thinking about a transfer instead of focusing on training.

“I was in the wrong, but it was the first time I had been in such a situation.

“A lot of people have given me advice, but I am clear in my mind. I want to make a step up.

“I shouldn’t make my career dependent on what happens at the World Cup finals.”

PFA Offers Help As Riyad Mahrez Remains Absent From Leicester City’s Training

Featured Image

The Professional Footballers’ Association is offering to mediate between Riyad Mahrez and Leicester City.

The PFA offered assistance last week but Riyad Mahrez and the club have yet to take up offer from players’ union.

We understand the PFA continue to monitor the Algerian’s on-going issue of absence from training.

Mahrez missed training again on Tuesday having handed in a transfer request to try to force a deadline day move to Manchester City.

The Foxes travel to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday with Mahrez now expected to miss the game, having sat out the last two matches.

Leicester hope to resolve the issue internally and are prepared to give the Algeria international time to reintegrate back into the squad.

They will hold talks with Mahrez’s representatives but will not rush the former PFA Player of the Year back.

A ‘close friend’ of the 26-year-old has been quoted saying the winger was depressed after the failed move and it has changed the dynamic of discussions.

Leicester need to be cautious with how they deal with the issue surrounding Mahrez’s health.

Patrice Evra has completed his free transfer to West Ham and signed a contract until the end of the season.

Patrice Evra arrived at the club’s Rush Green training complex on Wednesday morning before passing a medical and signing a deal which expires at the end of the 2017/18 season.

Everton were also interested in the former Manchester United, Juventus and Monaco left-back but the player favoured a move to London.

Evra, who spent eight years with United in total – including the 2013/14 season alongside current West Ham manager David Moyes – was sacked by Marseille earlier this season and banned by UEFA following an altercation with a supporter.

The ban only relates to UEFA competition and does not prevent Evra from playing in any domestic competitions, including the Premier League.

Maritime Workers Suspend Strike Action As FG Intervenes

Featured Image

The Maritime Workers Union, MWUN, on Tuesday suspended its planned strike as the federal government pledged to tackle all demands raised by the union.

Chris Ngige, Minister of Labour and Employment, made this known after a conciliatory meeting between the union and the Ministry of Transportation, Ministry Power, Works and the Management of the Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA, in Abuja.

The issues raised by the union include the deplorable condition of roads leading to the ports, issues surrounding their concessioning and decongestion.

Others are, poor sanitary condition in and around the ports as well as the need for palliative works on roads while the major construction is hastened.

Mr. Ngige reassured the workers of the determination of the federal government to tackle all the issues raised by the union.

“This is in order to enhance the ease of doing business and urgently arrest the situation where Nigerian ports constantly lose cargos to ports in the neighbouring countries,” he said.

He said at the end of the conciliatory meeting, the parties unanimously resolved that the special committee on road decongestion, meant to remove trucks/trailers on the road, should be brought back.

He said that the personnel undertaking it should also be strengthened.

According to the minister, the collaborative efforts of Ministry of Transport through the NPA, FMWP&H, Dangote Limited and Flour Mills on the two (2) Klm Wharf road should be noted.

“However, these efforts have not been very appreciable as only 10 per cent of the work has been done till date.

“The meeting, therefore, called on the lead project company, Dangote, to speed up action in terms of galvanising human and material resources.

“This is in order for them to see that they meet the timeline of the completion of the project in spite of unforeseen challenges,‘’ he said.

Mr. Ngige also said that the Federal Government would pursue vigorously the policy of non- establishment of new Tank Farms in the Port areas.

He said that the collaboration between the Federal Ministry of Transport and the Concessionaires at the Ports in terms of movement of containers by rail should be strengthened.

He said this would ensure that there was no pillage of trailers on the access road to the port.

The minister also said that the establishment of 340 (three hundred and forty ) capacity Trailer Park by the FMPW&H was a step in the right direction and noteworthy.

He said the meeting also appealed that the final stage of the Shore line Protection work be completed before the end of the second quarter of 2018.

“The meeting also resolved that a total reconstruction of the major access roads to Tin-Can Port area from Liverpool road via Coconut via Sunrise to Mile2 road should be undertaken urgently and in this direction.

“The Ministry of Transport through the NPA is to synergise and consummate the project before the end of the second quarter of 2018.

“The FMPW&H which has already captured the road to Tin-Can Port in its 2018 Budget should also do the same for roads leading to other Ports Nationwide,” he said.

The minister added that the sanitary conditions of the surrounding and roads to the ports should be the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) of the NPA and the Authority.

Mr. Ngige said the NPA should do the needful to remove the refuse within three months to avoid endangering the lives of workers and Port users.

He noted that the source of funding for the seven km road from Liverpool to Mile2 should be from Consolidated Revenue Fund (CRF), while the FMPW&H should provide technical expertise.

“In view of this conciliation meeting, the MWUN hereby suspends its intended strike action,” he said.

Not IBB, Not OBJ… Meet The Men Who Will Deny Buhari A 2nd Term – Mayowa Tijani

One of the things I have resolved to do this year is to find joy in everything I come across. The kind of joy that keeps you sane through the toughest of times. That one which keeps you going when the fiercest challenges rise; the kind of joy that makes you smile when you hit the rock at the bottom of the bottom, in a tunnel with no lights.

This piece was written by Mayowa Tijani and was first published on TheCable. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

These days, however, it is difficult to keep up with that joy; when you follow the social, economic and especially political developments in Nigeria. When you read the news or in my case, [sometimes] write the news, and you see things from 10 centuries ago playing out in the 21st century, you just cringe. But like I love to say; “Nothing can bring Mayowa down in 2018,” and yes, not even political developments in Nigeria.

So rather than get angry at some things and some people, I will offer free advice to the president, the man at the centre of many of these issues, and stay in a good mental state.

Mr. President, I understand you will be running for a second term, and your team is gearing up for the mother of all campaigns. I wish you luck. But just to remind you, sir, the history of Nigeria and its political divinations is not in favour of luck. The lucky ones from a few days ago are now the men of yesterday.

Luck will probably do you as much good as it did to that yesterday’s man with good luck. So here is what I think can do better magic than luck can do; hard and patriotic work in the few months left.

Olusegun Obasanjo (OBJ) and Ibrahim Babangida (IBB) may have shot missiles at you, saying you should take a bow and honourably retire to Daura. But Pastor Tunde Bakare and many other friends who sometimes tell you the truth have said you have the right to contest but have not fully given their blessings.

In some sense, these IBBs, OBJs and your friends may matter in some sense in our political life, but I dare say they are not potent enough to determine your fate for 2019 — that is still the exclusive preserve of the voters. However, the history of the world teaches that kingdoms collapse from within, and if yours will collapse, it will be as a result of the men within your household.

In no particular order, I present to you, the incomplete list of men who may innocently collapse your kingdom in the days to come.

ROCHAS OKOROCHA

My first advice to anyone in power is; beware of the praise singers (let’s not call them sycophants today). In my opinion, Rochas Okorocha, governor of Imo state, is the choirmaster of the praise singing team. In November 2017, he said 34 governors had endorsed Buhari for a second term. He was countered by Bola Tinubu, former governor of Lagos state, who said no automatic ticket for Buhari. Okorocha came out to say Tinubu looks like someone crying more than the bereaved on the issue.

By December, Okorocha added that Buhari is the man sent from God to save Nigeria.

“In 2019 the votes the president will get for his second tenure will be two times more than the votes he got in 2015 because most Nigerians have come to appreciate the necessity of his coming and what he is doing with the office,” he said via press release.

In January 2018, he added that all governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have endorsed the president for a second term in 2019.

In all of these, little or nothing was said about Buhari’s performance and the willpower needed to develop Nigeria. Okorocha, who hopes to be president someday, is only playing politics and singing to the president, what he wants to hear.

More often than not, these matters breed anger in the electorate and complacency in the president; the perfect recipe for a failed re-election bid.

IBRAHIM IDRIS AND HIS POLICE FORCE

I doubt there is anyone in this dispensation that has angered the electorate as much as Ibrahim Idris, the inspector general of police, and his men have done in the past year.

First, Nigeria Police Force was ranked the worst in the world by the World Internal Security and Police Index (WISPI) for 2016. Rather than take time out to seek improvement, Idris and his men said they were the best in Africa.

Not long after that, Nigerians called for a reform in the police force, using the hashtag ENDSARS. Less than a little window dressing was done, and the rest became history. That anger is still bottled up in the people who believe President Buhari has no genuine plan to reform the police force and end citizen harassment.

Need I speak of the number of journalists who have been arrested for speaking truth to power?

A few days into the new year, Idris, who was responding to the “genocide” in Benue state said: “Obviously it is communal crisis, herdsmen are part of the community. They are Nigerians and are part of the community are they not?”

“I think what we should be praying for is for Nigerians to learn to live in peace with one other,” he told journalists in Abuja.

Over 70 people have been gruesomely murdered and the man to maintain law and order in a civil society says Nigerians should learn to live in peace with killer herdsmen! How insensitive does it really get?

A few days later, after the president finally broke his silence on the crisis, Idris had to apologise. And now, one of his men, the police spokesperson, has come out to say Samuel Ortom, the governor of Benue state, is a drowning man. His offense was that he asked the IGP to do his job or resign! The ones to maintain order are spewing disorder and lack of decorum in public discourse.

The same police, who have been unable to solve the problem in Benue is deploying 4,000 officers to Nasarawa ahead of President Buhari’s visit. For what? Who wants to kill the president? Citizens are dying and little is done, the president is visiting and thousands are deployed. This is not how to run a civil nation!

Unfortunately, Nigerians cannot change the inspector general, but the people can change the one who appointed him and consequently change him.

Time and chance will not permit me to speak of Garba Shehu, Femi Adesina, Abubakar Malami, Itse Sagay, the president himself, and other office holders who through innocent speech or conscious action, are brewing the anger against a Buhari return.

Mr. President, my two cents.

Meet Cable In The New Trailer For Deadpool 2

Featured Image

20th Century Fox has finally given us a new trailer for Deadpool and it looks amazing.

In the new trailer, we finally get a proper look of Josh Brolin as the time traveling mutant, Cable complete with the teddy bear. The trailer is everything we would expect from Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool, funny, unserious and unconventional with fourth wall breaks. If you listen well enough, you’ll hear the shot at the Justice League movie in typical Wade Wilson fashion.

However, that takes nothing away from the amazing action shots we get a peek at. Other stars returning from the first Deadpool movie include Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Stefan Kapicic as the voice of Colossus.

Watch the new trailer below

Deadpool hits cinemas on May 18, 2018. Let us know what you think about the trailer in the comments.

OLX Shuts Down Outlets In Nigeria – Workers Asked To ‘Move Out’ By March

Featured Image

There are very strong indications that OLX, an online marketplace owned by Naspers, has shut down its offices in Nigeria, a move that indicates that Naspers is slowly moving its investments away from Africa.

Naspers are investors in MultiChoice — operators of the DStv and GOtv satellite televisions — and the recently acquired Konga.

According to a report on Innovation Village, staff in their offices have been informed on Tuesday, February 6, and are expected to fully move out by the end of March 2018.

OLX is a global classifieds platform with physical presence in nearly 40 countries.

Launched in Nigeria in 2012, OLX said it had more than three million sellers and buyers registered on its platform in 2015 and reported that items valued at N12.1tn were posted for sale on its website in 2016.

Speaking on the development, Techpoint quoted Sjoerd Nikkelen, the CEO of OLX, in Asia, Middle East, and Africa as saying that they will continue to operate remotely despite not having any physical presence:

“We made a difficult but important decision in Nigeria to consolidate our operations between some of our offices internationally.

Our marketplace will continue to operate here — uninterrupted — as it has since 2010, and we remain committed to the many people here who use our platform to buy and sell every month. We continue to be focused on constantly innovating to make sure that OLX remains the top classifieds platform in the country.

Of course, we are committed to helping our affected colleagues during this transition and have already offered them meaningful financial and other support. As we’ve expressed to them directly, we are extremely grateful for their many significant contributions to OLX’s success”.

Ghana and Kenya are rumoured to be the other two countries that have been affected by this new development, with only South Africa spared (for now). 

It is obvious that Naspers is diverting its attention from Africa and moving it to countries in Asia, Eastern Europe and South America where they believe they will get better yield for their investments.

#BBNaija 2018 Day 9: Fake Nominations Reveals True Colours of The Housemates

Featured Image

The mock nominations that took place on day 8 in the #bbnaija house not only left the Housemates shell-shocked but also revealed their true intentions. More so, the nominations revealed that bonds are likely to be broken as it wont be any easy living in a house where everyone has an agenda

With Tobi winning the head of the #bbnaija house title for the second time in a row, the intentions of the other housemates were made glaring. He snatched the coveted position from Teddy A and this appeared to cause tension, especially when Alex claimed that Tobi cheated because he seemed to know exactly what he was doing.

Despite the fact that the pair didn’t even try to defend their honour, the overall reaction in the #bbnaija House only goes further to prove that the other housemates are not up to accepting his reign over the house.

The massive revelations that emerged from the Diary Room confirmed that the #bbnaija housemates will no longer revel in niceties and sweet-talks, as hunger is now the name of the game.

Perhaps the 45 million Naira prize money will only further help justify whatever the #bbnaija housemates will do including betrayal, seduction and back-stabbing. This only further helps to confirm the words that a book should never be judged by its cover because the content might just be a shocker.

For followers of the #bbnaija show, it wont come as much of surprise that at the first occasion, during the fake Nomination, Tobi seized the opportunity to put up the pair of Teddy A and Bam Bam up for Eviction.

This singular act of his shows that he is out to eliminate the competition that the duo pose. He sure wouldnt have done this if he didnt deem the pair as competition, or would he?
