It’s Official! Liverpool Confirm Signing Of Fabinho From Monaco

Featured Image

Liverpool have confirmed the signing of midfielder Fabinho from Monaco for a fee of €45 million (£39m/$52m) plus bonuses of up to another €5m (£4m/$6m).

But the Champions League finalists is expected to wrap the signing of the Brazil international, 24, on July 1, for the above fee.

A further £4m (5m euros) could be added in performance-related bonus payments and Fabinho’s arrival will likely be followed by the departure of Emre Can.

Fabinho has spent spells playing as a right-back but has excelled in defensive midfield and is viewed as a replacement for Can, who is out of contract this summer and has repeatedly been linked with Juventus.

The Brazilian, whose deal will begin on 1 July, said the club’s infrastructure looked “exceptional”.

“I am really excited about this move,” Fabinho told Liverpool’s website. “This is something that I always wanted — this is a giant of a team. The infrastructures of the club look exceptional.

“A football club of this size coming after my services, I didn’t have to think that much about coming over.

“I will try to create my own history at this football club. Hopefully, on a personal level, I’m able to win titles with this club. I will try to grow and learn and improve myself, and to be part of the club’s history.”

Fabinho, who joined Monaco on loan from Portuguese side Rio Ave in 2013, won the French league title in 2016-17.

Fabinho, capped four times by Brazil but not part of their World Cup squad, has made 232 appearances for Monaco over five seasons, scoring 31 times mainly from his anchoring midfield position.

Bearded Woman ‘Undressed By Police’ For Gender Confirmation

Featured Image

A woman from Nairobi, Kenya, has reportedly threatened to sue two police officers after they allegedly forced her to undress in order to confirm her gender after they spotted she had a beard.

According to a report from the Star newspaper, Teresiah Mumbi, 31, who worked as a minibus tout, said she was stripped on May 15 by two unidentified female officers, who demanded to confirm whether she was a man or woman after she was arrested for a traffic offence.

Speaking on Friday at KTN Television, the woman said two unidentified female officers demanded to confirm whether she was a man or a woman.

“Those two female officers came and demanded that I undress and I put my legs apart. After they were satisfied they let me back to the cell,” Mumbi said.

She said that she did not like shaving as it was painful and her beard grew back over two days.

“I even stopped working. I do not want another incident like that,” she said.

“Is this justice? If these are the officers mandated to provide security, what will happen to me in public?” Mumbi asked.

According to Toku.com, Mumbi tried to plead with the two police officer not to humiliate her, but they were adamant they needed to confirm her gender.

She said that the police officers had demanded a bribe of KSh400 after she had been arrested with other minibus touts for a traffic offence.

Meanwhile, Alice Kimeli, the OCPD of Huruma, a residential estate located in the northeast of Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. is yet to confirm the claims by Mumbi.

Sevilla Appoint Pablo Machin As New Head Coach

Featured Image

Sevilla have appointed Pablo Machin as their new coach after the Spaniard led newly-promoted Girona to a 10th-place finish in La Liga.

Girona achieved promotion from the Segunda Division for the first time under Machin’s leadership and then ended the campaign in the top half last term.

They must now replace Machin and have been linked with two of Pep Guardiola´s assistant coaches at Manchester City, Mikel Arteta and Domenec Torrent.

Arteta was in the running to succeed Arsene Wenger at Arsenal earlier this month, only for former Sevilla boss Unai Emery to be given the job.

Machin has signed a two-year contract at Sevilla, who snuck into the Europa League qualification spots after sacking Vincenzo Montella in April.

Joaquin Caparros oversaw the upturn as caretaker but did not want the job full time and has instead become the club’s director of football.

“Pablo Machin will be the new manager of Sevilla FC,” a Sevilla statement said on Monday. “The club has reached an agreement for the next two seasons, with the coach joining after three and a half years of success at Girona FC.

“He joined Girona at the end of the 2013/14 season to save them from relegation and eventually achieved both promotion to the Primera División and consolidation with the elite.”

Democracy Day! Buhari To Address Nigerians Tomorrow

Featured Image

President Muhammadu Buhari will make a nationwide broadcast to Nigerians on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 at 7am in commemoration of this year’s Democracy Day, his spokesperson said on Monday.

Femi Adesina, his special adviser on media and publicity, confirmed this in a statement issued today.

“Television and radio stations are enjoined to hook up to the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and Radio Nigeria for the broadcast,” Adesina added.

Nigeria since 1999 has been observing 29 May as Democracy Day.

May 29, 1999, was the day the military handed over the reins of power to democratically elected representatives at all levels of governance.

The military, in its second coming, had governed Nigeria between January 1984 and May 1999, allowing some two years of civilian rule at the state level, between 1991 and 1993.

Tuesday’s celebration also marks the third anniversary of the Buhari administration.

Bear in mind that the federal government of Nigeria has declared tomorrow as public holiday to celebrate the 2018 Democracy Day.

2019: Senator Sani Declares Interest To Face El-Rufai In Kaduna Guber Poll

Featured Image

Shehu Sani, the senator representing Kaduna Central Zone, has announced his intention to contest against Governor Nasir El-Rufai in the 2019 governorship election of the state.

The Human rights activist, who according to Nigerian Guardian, made this known during the weekend, also said that he would soon officially decamp from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to one of the opposition parties where he will vie for the post to challenge El-Rufai.

He warned the current state governor that his days in office are numbered.

The senator also said the attacks and killings by Boko Haram insurgents and Fulani herdsmen would affect the political fortune of the APC during the presidential and governorship elections in many states.

In his words: “It was very clear that the results of the recently-conducted local council elections in Kaduna State did not reflect what happened.”

“Even, there was no ward congress in the state; they just wrote list of names and submitted and this situation has worsened the internal crisis among those who used their money to buy forms.”

“Let it be known to Governor El-Rufai that I am contesting against him in 2019 governorship election in the state. The election will not be conducted by the state electoral commission.”

“It will be conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and every Nigerian shall defend their votes openly.”

The Punch reports that during the attack, which took place in the early hours of Monday morning, some students were injured and many cars destroyed.

While the persons injured were said to be receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Centre, it was not yet clear if people were killed.

The Director of Caritas Nigeria, an agency of the Catholic Church, Rev. Fr. Evaristus Bassey, told the news outlet via a message on WhatsApp that:

“Please Frs, pray for us. Our minor seminary in Jalingo has just been attacked by the Fulani, some students are injured, some cars destroyed, two priests beaten and one shot on the leg. They are currently receiving treatment at FMC.”

3 Killed, 7 Injured As Suicide Bombers Hit Konduga

Featured Image

Two female suicide bombers suspected to be working for Boko Haram jihadists have killed at least three people in northeast Nigeria, emergency services said on Monday, May 28, 2018.

It was gathered that the bombers detonated their explosives inside a house and near a mosque in the Mashamari area of Konduga, 35 kilometres (20 miles) southeast of the Borno State capital Maiduguri, on Sunday evening.

“Three people were killed in the two attacks and seven others were injured,” Bello Danbatta, chief security officer of the Borno State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), told AFP.

“One of them detonated near a mosque while residents were preparing for the evening prayers and moments later the second one detonated inside a house,” said Danbatta, who was involved in evacuation of the victims.

However, in his narration, Ibrahim Liman, of the civilian militia force assisting the military against Boko Haram, said two more victims died on the way to the hospital in Maiduguri, raising the death toll to five.

The attack came two weeks after five militia members were killed by a male bomber who detonated explosives concealed on him at a checkpoint outside Konduga.

Boko Haram’s nine-year violence to create a hardline Islamic state has killed 20,000 people and displaced 2.6 million from their homes in Nigeria.

The violence has spilled into neighbouring Niger, Chad and Cameroon.

OAU Sex Scandal Exposes Buhari-Saraki Impotence

OAU Sex Scandal Exposes Buhari-Saraki Impotence – Tunde Odesola

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

Impunity is Nigeria’s Holy Grail. Every day, lawlessness unstrips decency and both dance naked to the brutal drums of anarchy as the clock ticks down to the zero hour when Nigeria would inevitably collapse upon all of us. Armageddon lurks, absurdity rocks but drunken and dazed Nigerian leaders poured more alcohol into the gourds of power, frolicking, dancing, stomping, sweating; drinking our future milk and honey together with the wine of today.

This piece was written by Tunde Odesola. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

Today, I write as a survivor of serial sex abuse. I write because almost five decades after my experience, the scars of horrific molten images are still burning deep inside the depth of a mind that recalls clearly the defilement of a kid by a young lady, who was a close family friend. I still remember her name, Aunty Iyabo, the lastborn of Iya Ijebu, our landlady on a popular street in the Onipanu area of Mushin in Lagos State. I was loved by her family that lived on the ground floor while my family lived on the top floor. Iya Ijebu, a big-time cloth merchant, particularly loved me, and so did her first son, who was popularly called minister. Minister would always buy me a bottle of soft drink whenever I came home with my report card from school. I really don’t know why, but Iya Ijebu, a light-complexioned, plump, old woman, and her family doted on me.

So, whenever her daughter took me to her room, everyone thought her gesture was in line with the family’s love. Aunty Iyabo would lock me up in her room, strip naked and do unprintable things with me. I was too young and naïve to know there was a difference between her strange fantasy and the washing of plates or sweeping. At times, she would get me under the tap in the bathroom, carry and press me insanely to her naked body. Later in her room, she would put my tiny hands to every part of her body and I would watch her wriggle. For some minutes, it could be fun to me – watching this ‘big aunty’ playing with a little me, covering us up with a huge blanket as she tickled, giggled and laughed. After a while, I would lose interest in the groping, telling my big guest I wanted out, but she would beg with candies and biscuits and place my head on her bosom, rocking me with pleas and promises. I decided to open up on this personal experience because parents, guardians and the society largely believe that only female children need to be protected against sex predators. In my own case, though I found it strange, I didn’t even know what the aunty was doing wasn’t good, hence I didn’t deem it fit to report. Aunty Iyabo was a friend to my mum’s youngest sister, who lived with us.

The next case of sex abuse involves a postgraduate student of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Monica Osagie, who has pointed the finger at her lecturer, Prof Richard Akindele, for allegedly demanding five days of sex (not rounds o) from her in a viral telephone recording. Also, in the Land of Uncle Sam, a former USA Gymnastics team doctor, Larry Nasser, would spend 175 years in prison, following conviction for criminal sexual conduct after evidence and Victim Impact Statements by 156 women were heard by a federal court. Judge Rosemary Aquilina, who delivered the judgment, said she wouldn’t trust Nasser with her dog, adding that the 175-year sentence would begin after Nasser completed his 60-year federal sentence for child pornography. Several heads rolled in the wake of the scandal which was broken by the Indiana Star. Investigation revealed that the 54-year-old Nasser had been sexually abusing teenage athletes under the guise of medical treatment since 1997 before the law caught up with him in 2017 and his sentencing in 2018. The team doctor had, in 2004, used PowerPoint presentation to prove to the police that his treatment was justified when a 17-year-old girl accused him. Survivors of Nasser’s sexual abuse, including Olympic champions Simone Biles, Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney, said the Olympics team doctor touched them inappropriately. The employer of Nasser, Michigan State, agreed to pay an unprecedented $500m as settlement to 332 alleged victims who filed a class action suit against the Michigan State University, where Nasser worked, just as law suits and claims pending before various courts have been on the increase. According to reports, the university will also set aside $75m of the settlement for future claimants alleging sexual abuse. An attorney to some of the victims, John Manly, said in a statement, “This historic settlement came about through the bravery of more than 300 women and girls who had the courage to stand up and refuse to be silenced.” Following the scandal, the President of MSU and the entire USA Gymnastics board resigned, acknowledging the need for institutional change. It was heard in court that allowing Nasser to examine and treat athletes alone in private rooms for over two decades was in violation of USAG’s standards of conduct. The MSU, however, argued that as a state institution, it enjoyed sovereign immunity, which shielded it from civil liability. Legally, complicity and collusion are not criminal offences per se in this instance, argued USAG, but a survivor of Nasser’s abuse, Olivia Cowan, said, “I want MSU and USAG to know what they have done is on the very same level of accountability as the crime Nasser has committed.”

The OAU sex scandal and the Nasser narrative explain the difference between Nigeria and the US. Whereas the US Senate, following the report by Indiana Star, wrote a letter to USAG president and CEO, Steve Penny, expressing concern and calling for immediate steps to report the complaints received and install future safeguards, the Nigerian Senate has never discussed nor taken any action on the everyday reports of rape and other sexual abuses across the country. Instead, the Bukola Sarake-led Senate failed to sit for duties for a whole day when it visited Senator Dino Melaye who allegedly got injured while attempting to evade trial for some purported offences.

In Nigeria, perpetrators of sex abuse are seen as victims, who need deliverance themselves, but in the US, they are seen as criminals whom the society needs to be delivered from. After the OAU sex scandal broke, some members of the society said Osagie, probably, would’ve consented to the professor’s advances if he didn’t demand five days of sex. But a national outrage greeted the unmasking of Nasser in the US. Victims of Nasser’s ignoble actions freely came out to testify in the US, but many Nigerian victims of sex abuse keep silent for fear of stigmatisation. As soon as the Nasser story broke, police began their own independent investigation but the police in Nigeria have not said anything on the OAU sex scandal several weeks after. When the law eventually caught up with Nasser, he received its full wrath. At no point was there any plot to subvert justice or make Nasser get off with a light sentence. The reverse is always the case in Nigeria.

Whereas all relevant organisations made public statements in the case of Nasser, the Nigerian Presidency, Senate, Academic Staff Union of Universities, Federal Ministry of Education, National Universities Commission etc have refused to comment on the wave of sexual abuse plaguing the nation’s higher institutions. When these public institutions don’t even see sexual abuse as an alarming scourge, how would they find a solution to it?

The imprimatur of our national failure doesn’t reside only in the army of youths plaguing our day with bank-robbery horror or the orgiastic ritual killings stalking our night. They’re also located in the complicity of a maladministered and misdirected government weakened at the seams by corruption, suspicion, ineptitude and lack of vision.

Kizz Daniel’s Change Of Name Doesn’t Free Him From Court Case – G-Worldwide

Featured Image

Few days ago, it was reported that former G-Worldwide act, Kiss Daniel has changed his name to Kizz Daniel.

It is believed that the singer’s change of name is necessitated by the ongoing legal tussle with his former label, G-worldwide.

The singer announced via his social media handles saying;

“Moving forward. Call me Kizz Daniel.”

Reacting to the Flyboy Inc boss change of name, Daniel’s former manager, Louiza Williams, has said that the singer’s action had no effect on the court case.

While speaking with Sunday Scoop, Louiza said;

“I actually did not know that he had changed his name until you told me. However, there is no big deal about that; it has nothing to do with the case,” said the musician’s ex-manager.

“The next court date is June 26. It is not true that the case has been settled; so, I don’t know where all those reports came from. If there was anything like that, I would be aware of it. Though Kizz Daniel doesn’t come to court personally, his lawyers appear on his behalf and I am sure they pass relevant information across to him accordingly. The court ruled that both parties should maintain the status quo, but Kizz Daniel is doing what is best known to him, which is contrary to what the court ordered.”

On what move G-Worldwide is considering, Williams said,

“The company definitely has a plan but I cannot reveal anything for now.”

Prominent American hip-hop superstar, Sean Combs, alias P Diddy, has hailed Nigerian rapper, Folarin ‘Falz’ Falana, for his new video, ‘This is Nigeria,’ a cover of Childish Gambino’s ‘This is America’.

Resembling the concept used by the American musician/filmmaker born Donald Glover, the Nigerian singer used his song to address a number of societal issues in the country.

WATCH VIDEO: Falz – This Is Nigeria

On the song, Falz raps about the government’s ‘sluggish’ response to the missing Chibok Girls, the drug addiction epidemic among Nigerian youth, the infamous Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), internet fraud, crooked pastors, Fulani herdsmen and even Big Brother Nigeria.

The video, which was released late on Friday, was met with mixed reactions, largely due to the sensitive issues it addresses.

In his reaction, the Bad Boy Records boss posted a short clip on his Instagram page, in which he acknowledged the Nigerian rapper/comic-actor, with the caption “#Nigeria LETS GO!”

Liverpool Keeper Karius Receives Death Threats After #UCLFinal Blunders

Featured Image

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has received death threats and abuse on social media after he conceded three goals in the Champions League final in Kiev against Real Madrid on Saturday.

The German-born keeper and his family have been the focus of hundreds of threats and hate messages on social media after making several mistakes that resulted in goals for the Spanish club.

Fans are blaming the keeper for Liverpool’s defeat.

The Spanish side’s first goal came when Karim Benzema charged down an attempted throw-out by Karius, and the goalkeeper then allowed a long-range Gareth Bale shot to slip through his grasp for the third.

The 24-year-old German goalkeeper was in tears at the final whistle in Kiev after the 3-1 defeat.

Heartbroken Karius said he was “infinitely sorry” for the mistakes.

He tweeted a heart felt apology on Sunday afternoon saying: “Haven’t really slept until now… the scenes are still running through my head again and again…

“I’m infinitely sorry to my teammates, for you fans, and for all the staff. I know that I messed it up with the two mistakes and let you all down…

“As I said I’d just like to turn back the time but that’s not possible. It’s even worse as we all felt that we could have beaten Real Madrid and we were in the game for a long time…

“Thank you to our unbelievable fans who came to Kiev and held my back, even after the game. I don’t take that for granted and once again it showed me what a big family we are.

Thank you and we will come back stronger.”

While majority of the fans received his apology and also praised him for how he responded to the defeat, other fans, however, took to social media to attack the star.

Other comments wished death on the 24-year-old player’s family.

One poster wrote: “My Liverpool boys fought hard and I’m proud of them. Except for Karius he can die in a hole.”

Other comments wished death on the 24-year-old player’s family.

Another said: “I’ll murder your girl I’ll murder your girl”.

One said his “sons deserve to die of cancer” and “I hope your whole family dies”.

Meanwhile, Merseyside Police said they were “aware of these messages and making further enquiries”.
