Ekiti State Teachers Cursed Fayose For Giving Them Tiny Christmas Chickens

It was an interesting sight yesterday as primary and secondary school teachers from all over Ekiti State converged on Agric Olope area of Ado-Ekiti to collect the chickens that Governor Ayodele Fayose promised them for Christmas.
As early as 9am, teachers had started to throng the distribution venue to collect their chickens. When Governor Fayose arrived with a deluge of security aides in his traditional short-sleeve T-shirt, he threw victory punch to the air with the supporters he brought in buses responding with shouts of Oshoko.
The whole stretch of Agric Olope of
Ajilosun was jam-packed with the vehicles of the teachers that came from all over the state. The other end of Agric Olope by Matthew Street was a no-go area as teachers, who parked their cars far away from the distribution venue, trekked long
distances.
By noon, the picture of what would emerge at the end of the day had started to take shape as teachers went home with pigeon-size chickens cursing the governor in unprintable words. Some left in annoyance shouting “Sai Buhari, Sai Buhari”.
When the governor saw the anger of the teachers as they shoved and shoved in an uncontrollable scramble to collect their chickens, he offered to decentralize the distribution, but the teachers had already lost their patience, as they left in anger.
One teacher from Omuo-Ekiti lamented that he had spent about N800 to travel to Ado-Ekiti to collect a chicken that sells for less than N1000. One of the friends of a teacher who parked his car about 400 metres away from the venue with a green Nissan Primera lamented ever wasting his time “for this nonsense”. The man was more angry as the car of his friend broke down with bad brake cable where they parked. As at 6:30pm, mechanics were still battling to bring the car to life.
Surrounded by four other teachers, one of them said that he knew the whole exercise would be a fluke immediately he learnt that teachers in both primary and secondary schools were lumped together for the exercise.
“I know it is going to be like this. More than half of the teachers won’t get the fowls. Elomirin a kari so dele loni leyin ugba kaan ba ruun kankan gba leyin kaan duro titi titi ninu orirun (some people will go dejected back home empty-handed after waiting long hours in the sun).
As teachers moved enmasse in anger from the place, the governor pleaded that they should come back, promising that he would add N2 million to be shared among the teachers. This angered the teachers the more, as they started shouting:”How much will one teacher get if N2m is shared among more than 18,000 teachers in both primary and secondary schools?”
As The Trumpeter tried to take the
photographs of the teachers as they were leaving in anger, some covered their faces to avoid being photographed.
To everybody’s chagrin, Fayose on his way to the office abruptly stopped at Matthew street junction along Ajilsun and sat at a phone vendor booth making phone calls while traffic built up heavily along the road.

“Desmond Elliott Is A Sierra Leonean Not Yoruba Nigerian” – Fan Accuses Nollywood Actor Of Lying For Political Ambition

Desmond Elliot is of the Oku tribe of
Sierra Leone, he is not a Nigerian and that’s the reason the name Olusola suddenly surfaced from nowhere and started claiming to be Yoruba. The Oku tribes are the remnant of Yoruba migrants of Sierra Leone who today have reintegrated with the Sierra Leonean society and don’t regard themselves as Nigerians but accept they had their roots from Nigeria.
Today, most of them bare Yoruba names like Akilapa, Tokunbo, Bola Mosunro, (of BBC) Mopelola etc. but are not Nigerians. Lagos happens to be a hotbed of all sort of people who easily claim to be what they are
not. Desmond Elliot knows this and has exploited it to the maximum.
He cannot get away with such a deception in upland Yoruba State’s towns and villages because, there; everybody knows everyone’s roots and family leaniage, starts from family compound name, to grand parentage
names and the local family names of parents and where the origin of family names and how they came to be known by such names, how they came to be residents of the towns and villages they reside.
Desmond Elliot has been allowed to get away with lies without being properly grilled and verified of his true citizenship of Nigeria.
Claiming to be Nigerian should just not to be enough especially when one begins to nurse a political ambition like Desmond Elliot is doing otherwise, someday Nigerians will find a foreigner ruling Nigeria like it happened in Peru, where an unverified Japanese politician, Fuji Muri rose from nowhere to become president of Peru, he was only discovered after ruling Peru with iron fists for decades and was
later indicted and charged for criminal offences while in exile.
Worst still, anyone can get a Nigerian passport if they have money.. Na wao.

Photo: Identity Of Liberian Diagnosed With Ebola In Dallas Texas Revealed

Meet Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who unknowingly imported Ebola Virus into the United States of America less than two weeks ago.
On August 20, Duncan traveled to Ebola-torn Liberia to visit his family members.
In Liberia, he had contact with several Ebola patients including an infected pregnant woman whom he helped to carry to the hospital 3 days before he boarded a flight back into the US.
The pregnant woman identified as Marthalene Williams,19, was his girlfriend back home.
She was eventually turned away from the overcrowded hospital but Duncan cared for her until her death.
The landlord of the infected woman and those who came in contact with her died of the virus.
When Duncan headed back to his base in Texas, he showed no symptoms of the virus.
He surrendered himself at the hospital when he started feeling sick but he was given antibiotics and sent home.
Eric Duncan then spent another 4 days at home getting sicker and sicker. He
reportedly came in contact with his
girlfriend’s children and friends.
He returned to the hospital when his
condition became life threatening and was finally diagnosed with the killer disease.
His contacts have been isolated for public safety.
Eric Duncan has been listed in serious but stable condition at the Ebola Isolation ward of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

Confusion: False Prophet TB Joshua Says He Prophesied SCOAN Church Bldg Collapse

Controversial Prophet TB Joshua in a recent FB post said he prophesied the disaster that befell his church recently during a sermon and only those in the spirit will catch it.
He also warned those exposing his secrets to be careful of dangers that will befall them soon. **empty threats**

Read what he said on his official FB page:

“For those who are outside the Lord, they would not know. When you are outside God, you will not know what I am talking. When you are outside the light, you cannot understand what I am talking.
“For the three weeks before the incident, if you heard my message and sat down, you would know I was giving you a vision and prophetic word on how to handle the situation at hand. Trials and tests are for our belief. I go by the directives of God,”
“I have been on this journey for 27 years.
Do you think God can close His eyes and rubbish everything here? They are asking God to bring more evidence of whether He is the one who called me. Warn everyone to be very careful. This issue at hand is a delicate issue.
“People are using this to gain money and friends. This is a warning. Whatever people want to write let them write; they will be the ones to read it. I said our God would get back to them. He has started somewhere.
He is coming. If your brother is involved, unless he can resurrect the people who died, he will join them. If you can resurrect the people who died, you can go free.
“The servants, the people who sent them; the people who heard the stories all around and those who want to use it for themselves and to disturb my spirit, you may likely
join them. Be careful. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. Let us be very careful with our tongues,”.

I have received a number of mails from those claiming to be the servants of the self- professed prophet.

Dear Fatai Temitope Balogun Joshua,

Our God is not an author of confusion, if he shows you something as disastrous like the one that killed over 115 members of your church recently, he will give you a
clear direction on how to prevent.

[Read 1 Corinthians 14: 33 – For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints] and also

[1 Corinthians 10:13: There hath no
temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it ]
No matter how long lies prevail, one day the truth of the word of God shall come open.
You shall know the truth and the truth shall set your free. [John 8:32]
To all those under your control and
manipulations, one day the light of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ will shine upon them and they will make amend.
I will not blame anyone still worshiping this controversial master, one day God will show them the truth.
My family and I know Fatai Temitope Joshua too well to fall for his lies.
His birth name is Fatai Balogun a Muslim by birth, there is no critical evidence on when he gave his life to Christ. But when he started his Synagogue temple, he adopted the name Temitope Joshua. I will not go into further details. Do your research and
allow God to minister to you.
Fatai Balogun’s fans, blast me all you can, THE TRUTH WILL SOON PREVAIL

My greatest prayer for you all is for God to open your spiritual eye to see the kind of bondage you are in.
I thank God for those that God has already delivered from his shackles.
End time is here friends.
[Mathews 24:24 – For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.]

PEACE!

Boko Haram & Ebola Virus: The Twin Devils Of The Season By Chris Okotie

“Like Boko Haram’s crazy insurgents who kill their victims and the soldiers who fight to protect them; the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), kills its victims along with some medical personnel who battle to save their lives. These are the twin devils of the season.
The twin scourges of 2014 share many other characteristics. Their roots date back to decades, but their ravages of human souls across the sub-Sahara Africa only peaked this year, even as a disbelieving world is left agape by their ferocity.
Advancing mercilessly against its hapless preys like jungle predators, EVD and Boko Haram kill with lightening speed, and have so far defied solution. It is no hyperbole to label Ebola as the Boko Haram of lethal, viral diseases, which still confounds the world’s best scientific minds.
These two crises have placed Nigeria on the world’s radar, with Ebola pushing the Chibok Girls’ abduction (a Boko Haram by-product), and some of our familiar maladies like corruption to the sidelines at the moment.
Prior to the arrival of the Liberian man, late Patrick Sawyer into the country, the epidemic of Ebola was widely reported in neighbouring Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, where it had claimed more than 900 lives. Our government ought to have known that given the free movement of people across borders in the ECOWAS sub -region, the chance of a carrier of the Ebola virus coming into this country is very high indeed.
Precautionary measures ought to have been taken to thoroughly screen ECOWAS passengers at our entry ports, and land borders. This was not done, even as the EVD recorded serial deaths in the worst hit countries nearby. This apparent policy failure on the part of government led to the spread of this killer epidemic to Nigeria, through contacts by health workers and co-travellers with the index case, the late Sawyer, who was reportedly under watch for EVD in his native Liberia, before he sneaked into Nigeria on that fateful day.
While one must commend the hospital staff who attended to Sawyer for their prompt diagnosis of the Ebola patient, and the government’s swift action in isolating him, these measures appear to be medicine after death as the damage of spreading the virus through unsuspecting primary and, possibly secondary contacts has resulted in the infection of ten people at the last count, and the death of one Nigerian health worker.
The fact that care givers themselves are at risk, makes Ebola such a monstrous enemy. This poses grave danger to our capacity to contain it, more so, when there’s still no known cure for the disease.
So, we now face the grim spectre of seeing anyone infected, living hopelessly on death row, unless the patient is saved by divine intervention, as the EVD is known to kill 90 percent of its victims.
Any time the Health Minister, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu appears on television to brief the media on EVD, he assumes the unenviable role of an undertaker, who announces the “obituary” of the latest infected victims. The figures keep growing.
Almost 180 people are now under surveillance. The sad part is that, we have no idea when a potent cure could be found. The promise of getting effective drugs on the shelf by next year is not cast in iron. For a disease that kills its victims within days, or at most weeks, this is very sad indeed. At the moment, we can only continue to pray and hope that a wonder drug would come sooner than expected by one stroke of medical miracle.
In the case of Boko Haram, we pin down its apparent success to poor timing response by government, and the obvious lack of effective coordination by the security agencies to the menace at its insipient stage, before it grew into hydra-head monster it is today. The Chibok Girls’ abduction, which spurned the “Bring Back our Girls” hashtag that went viral on social media, was the wake-up call that gingered our government into action.
Now, more than 100 days after the abduction of the girls, the multilateral intervention led by the United States, has not freed the girls as widely expected.
The initial widespread optimism that the American technology that destroyed Osama Bin Ladin would be deployed against the less sophisticated Boko Haram insurgents has turned out to be an illusion.
Today, what is coming out of the western media is that the Americans and the allies are reluctant to put their boots on the Sambisa forest ground because of the charge that the local war budget is being mismanaged by Nigerian commanders. Tales of extra-judicial killings of alleged Boko Haram being bandied in the western satellite TV networks are reasons for the lukewarm attitude of President Barak Obama and his colleagues in confronting Boko Haram, Ansaru and other Nigerian Islamists.
Realizing that Nigeria must now fight its own war, while America completes its unfinished business in the Middle East, President Goodluck Jonathan has requested for approval by the National Assembly for $1billion dollar foreign loan to re-equip our military to enhance its ability to meet the present security challenges.
However, people are asking; the Gowon regime fought the 30-month civil war on a shoe string budget, without borrowing a kobo from abroad. Why can’t we do the same with our multi-billion dollar earnings from oil? Until Mr. Jonathan answers this $1b question, this loan request may be another recipe for controversy.”

How Jonathan & Nigerian State Governors Escape From Boko Haram

Just came across this interesting piece that depicts the situation Nigeria is presently facing.

Boko Haram commmander, Abubakar Shekau has demanded for a 2-day urgent meeting with the President, his Vice and the 36 Governors in the country. It will start on Sunday and end on Monday. The meeting is to hold in their Camp in the dreaded forest.

Government reaction: President Goodluck Jonathan has directed that all the Governors should be present in the meeting as he wont be able to be there because he has an urgent meeting in Paris. Oga Jona escapes.

Governor Amaechi called Fashola today and told him that he is travelling tomorrow and that he wont be back until Tuesday,
Fashola said he should call another person because he himself is already on his way to England to see the Queen.

Oshiomole called Uduaghan to tell him that he is travelling to Senegal and he will come back on Tuesday,
but Uduaghan said I was about calling you to tell you that am on my way to UK Prison to see my Oga, Ibori.

When Okorocha called Vice President Sambo to ask how the meeting will be, Sambo said: my brother I am not feeling fine o and I wont feel fine until Tuesday evening…
Okorocha said ehyaa, I just want to tell you that I am in One Airport in Ghana, and many of the Governors are also here with me, we are on a queue to get a ticket for night flight. Please we are all coming back to Nigeria on Tuesday evening.

Ajimobi got to the Airport trying to jet out, he saw Aregbesola booking for a ticket to move with the next flight.

When Ibikunle Amosun called Kayode Fayemi to tell him dat he wont be able to come to the meeting because he wants to go to Portugal, Kayode Fayemi told him: I am presently in India, in fact Mimiko is also here wit me, we wont be back until Tuesday evening…
When Okorocha called the Vice president to ask how d meeting will be, Sambo said i am not feeling fine and i wont feel fine until tuesday evening……..Okorocha said ehyaa, i just want to tell you that I am in One Airport in Ghana, and the other 35 Governors are also here with us, we are on a queue to get a ticket for night flight…….we are all coming back on Tuesday evening.

Fellow Nigerians: who will now attend to this Boko Haram and save Nigeria from this madness?

“Nigerian Soldiers Afraid Of Fighting Boko Haram Terrorists” – US Air Force Chief Of Staff

Few days after US Marines were moved from Nigeria to Sicily, US General Mark Welsh hinted that the United States might limit its involvement in the ongoing search for the kidnapped school girls in Borno state because the Nigerian Military are very afraid of the dreaded extremists.
While speaking on Thursday before the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, the US Air Force Chief of staff, Gen.
Mark Welsh III, said, “We’re now looking at a military force that is, quite frankly, becoming afraid to even engage. The United States doesn’t have the capacity, the capability to go rescue every kidnapped person around the world.”
Saturday PUNCH learnt that the US had questioned the ability of the Nigerian military to rescue the girls even with
international help.
The Pentagon’s Principal Director for African Affairs, Alice Friend, also said, “The Nigerian military has the same
challenges with corruption that every other institution in Nigeria does. Much of the funding that goes to the Nigerian military is skimmed off the top, if you will.”
US officials have also said that its involvement had also been made difficult because Nigerian officials ignored past warnings to soften brutal tactics that only fuelled the Boko Haram’s insurgency.
At Thursday’s Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, officials condemned the kidnappings and committed American aid to help rescue the girls. But they also expressed frustration at Nigeria’s political and military leaders for failing to heed Washington’s warnings about the extremist group.
“We have been urging Nigeria to reform its approach to Boko Haram,” Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Robert Jackson, said.
He added, “From our own difficult experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq, we know that turning the tide of an insurgency requires more than force. The state must demonstrate to its citizens that it can protect them and offer them opportunity.
When soldiers destroy towns, kill civilians and detain innocent people with impunity, mistrust takes root.”
A retired Head of the US military’s Africa Command, Gen.
Carter Ham, said, “My sense is that US Government will
remain in a supporting role to Nigeria. I do not think the U.S.G. will seek unilateral action.”
The size of the Sambisa Forest is also believed to make the
search for the girls difficult.

“We are basically searching for these girls in an area that’s
roughly the size of West Virginia, so it’s a tough challenge, to be sure,” state Department spokesman, Marie Harf, said on Thursday.

“Oprah Winfrey & Gayle King Likely Lesbian Lovers” Step mum Barbara Exposes Oprah’s Dirty Secrets

In this latest interview with Daily Mail UK, the former wife of Oprah Winfrey’s father, Barbara Winfrey has revealed some unpleasant secrets about the media mogul and it is so messy.
According to Barbara, the Oprah Winfrey we see on TV is a different personality from her real self.
She described Oprah as a very controlling, arrogant and manupulative woman.
Barbara is very bitter after Oprah destroyed her
relationship with her hubby and kicked her out of the home she bought for them 14 years ago leaving her homeless.
She also said Oprah Winfrey’s relationship with
Stedman Graham is a contract, calling it a pragmatic cocktail of shared secrets, convenience and money.
Barbara further said the relationship between 60 year old Oprah and her best friend, Gayle King is very unhealthy because the two are unmarried (she promised to expose them tomorrow).

Read what Barbara told Daily Mail below:

‘You find out quickly where your place is with Oprah and you get in that place and you stay in that place. My crime, I think, was to talk to her like a normal person and she didn’t like that one bit. My husband once told me that just because someone gives you something does not mean they love you. He was talking about Oprah.
Her brand is that she’s a nice, caring, generous, giving person. That’s not how it is. She’s controlling – it’s all about control. She has confidentiality agreements with pretty much everybody in her life. She has them sign their life away and she has them in her pocket.
Everything comes with stipulations but she doesn’t tell you that and she doesn’t tell you what they are. Some people can have money and be mentally rich – secure in what they have I guess. But others, how can I put it…some people you can’t take the ghetto out of. That’s Oprah, it’s who she is and where she’s from. She had
money, everybody was going to know it and see it. But she had to be in control.’

About Oprah throwing her out of her matrimonial
home, according to Barbara, she wedded Vernon
Winfrey, Oprah’s father, 15 years after first meeting him – 17 June 2000. But their marriage fell apart when she discovered Vernon cheated on her with a prostitute named ‘One Tooth.’
By her own admission Barbara struggled to cope with Vernon’s infidelity. She moved out of the marital bedroom but she was not, she insisted, looking to end her marriage.
Evicted: Barbara was first ordered by the court to
vacate her home by March 31. Oprah purchased the house in the name of her company, Overground Railroad LLC, the plaintiff in the case.

Barbara said:
‘Oprah is a woman who empowers women to be all they can be, to stand up against men who mistreat them. If she was a more decent person she would realize that what her dad did was very wrong instead of plotting against me and pushing me out of the scene.
Barbara has till the 29th of May to pack her belongings from the house.
I have lost everything. It’s not just a house, this is my home. All my memories are here. I’m trying to keep it together but there are some days I just don’t understand how I could have made her so angry that she would kick me out on the street and think nothing about it. But that’s Oprah – she’s judge and jury.
“I know people have read about this and thought,
“Who does she think she is? Why should she get a
million dollar home? But can you see it’s not about that? It’s about everything that went before. Look at how she has treated me. I laid my head next to her father for 14 years and she never thought me worthy of talking to.
Meanwhile, Barbaba promises to grant part 2 of the explosive interview to Daily Mail tomorrow.

Chei! this woman sounds very bitter.

Do you think Oprah Winfrey should have released the mansion to Barbara?

Boko Haram Members In Army Uniform Bombed Nyanya Abuja Motor Park

The car containing the bomb that exploded at Nyanya Motor Park, Abuja, on Monday, was driven to the park by two men in military uniform.
The Head of Operations of Isiyaka Nagode Enterprises, Salisu Mukhtar, disclosed this in an interview with one of our correspondents in Abuja on Thursday.
Mukhtar also said that the staff of the company had been questioned by the police.
He stated, “Somebody that slept there told us he was there when two men in Army uniforms entered and parked a car there.
“Two of them came in two cars. They parked the car and left in the other car around 2am. The person that saw them could not challenge them because they were in military uniform. They left in the second car.
“When he woke up around 5am, he still found the car there. Because he was disturbed, he sent one of his boys to our office but we had not come by then. The bomb exploded when the boy he sent was returning and he died in the bomb blast.”
According to him, the FCT police command has begun investigation into the incident, adding that they (the management of the park) did not witness the bomb blast.
He said, “They (police) quizzed us about the incident but we told them we were not there when the thing happened.”
Mukhtar told our correspondent that seven of his men died in the bomb blast.
“We have seen their corpses. They are in the mortuary now. Seven of them including loaders and one task force member are dead.”
One of our correspondents learnt that a trader at the terminal saw the car being driven into the park.
It was gathered that a trader, who was awake when the two men arrived in separate cars had been making useful statements to security agencies in order to unravel the mystery surrounding the bomb blast, which had claimed 89 lives with 257 others injured.
Our correspondent learnt that the trader had also been invited by Army authorities to extract statement from him.
When contacted, the FCT Police Public Relations
Officer, Altine Daniel, said the investigation into the blast was being handled by the Force Criminal
Investigation Department.
He referred inquiries to the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba.
Mba, however, did not respond to calls to his phone and a text message sent to him.
When our correspondent contacted the Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen Laleye Olajide, he described the claim as a falsehood which should be dismissed.
Olajide said that those making the claim were only on a mission to destroy the image of the Nigerian Army.
Olajide wondered why those making the claim did not say it when the explosion occurred on Monday.
He said, “Why did they not say so in the beginning when the explosion occurred if it was true?
“Why did they not say it at the time. This thing
happened how many days ago, it happened since
Monday and I have not read it anywhere. People said they even recovered the bodies of the bombers, they did not say the bodies were recovered with military uniform.
“Why are people just out to destroy the image of the Army? This is falsehood, it is not true. It is just another attempt to destroy the image of the Army.”

Armed Robbers Attacked UniOsun Off Campus, Raped Female Students

In the wee hours of Friday the 18th of April 2014, dare devils attacked students of UniOsun in Osogbo at some private hostels very close to the main campus of the institution.
The armed robbers armed with dangerous weapons stormed the different hostels and robbed the students of their laptops, phones, beverages, money and other valuables.
Eyewitnesses disclosed that the robbers also raped some female students and all efforts by the male students to subdue them were unsuccessful due to the nature of the weapons the robbers carried.
It was learnt that some students worshiping at the All Nations Baptist Church located close to the university campus were also attacked by the armed robbers.
The head of the church, Reverend John Ojo said that the robbers chased the worshipers out of the church during a vigil, adding that majority of the students sustained injuries in the course of running for their lives.
He explained that robbers stormed the church around 1.30am and unleashed terror on the students for close to two hours.
According to him, “the students had been experiencing incessant robbery attack since January and the management has ignored the students under the guise that they are living off campus.
Two of the students who were attacked, Toyin Banjo (200 level) and Ayeni Tosin (200 level) said they were in the church when the robbers arrived, saying they forced open the windows of the church.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mrs.
Folasade Odoro who confirmed the robbery incident said the state Police Commissioner, Mr Ibrahim Maishanu had ordered investigation into the incident.
She said the Police Command will work assiduously to ensure that the hoodlums are brought to book as soon as possible.

Teenager Arrested In Netherlands Over Terror Tweet To American Airlines

April 17, 2014 – Teenager Arrested In Netherlands
Over Terror Tweet To American Airlines This is a big lesson and eye opener for those who play
EXPENSIVE jokes on social media sites.

How much are those Twitter followers really worth?

A 14-year-old girl from the Netherlands was arrested on Monday after tweeting a terror threat to American Airlines — and marveling at the Twitter followers that she attracted because of it.

“Hello my name’s Ibrahim and I’m from Afghanistan.
I’m part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I’m gonna do
something really big bye,” she tweeted to
@AmericanAir on Sunday, using a Twitter account
mostly dedicated to the American pop star Demi
Lovato.
The airline responded that it “takes these
threats seriously” and would report her tweet and IP address — not information the airline would actually have access to — to the FBI.

The girl then fired off a series of tweets in her defense:

“omfg I was kidding.” “I’m just stupid okay.” and “Omg I gained 3k followers today.” However, it appears airline wasn’t impressed.

Rotterdam police confirmed on Monday that the girl had been arrested.

A spokesperson for the Dutch police told Business
Insider, “We’re not in a state that we can communicate any state of charges at this point, we just thought it was necessary to bring this out mostly because of the fact that it caused a great deal of interest on the Internet.”

American Airlines, which deleted the tweet, released the following statement:

At American, the safety of our passengers and crew is our number one priority. We take security matters very seriously and work with authorities on a case-by-case basis.

The teen, whose name is “Sarah,” later tweeted that she needed some legal representation. “I need a lawyer. Any lawyers on here?” she asked on Sunday, hours before the arrest.

Very dumb joke!

Nigerian Prophet Predicts More Boko Haram Attacks “President Jonathan Knows Their Sponsors”

….Super Eagles Will Not Get To The Semi Final

Prophet Ayodele Elijah, the founder of Inri Evangelical Spiritual Church in Oke Afa, Isolo area of Lagos State Nigeria has predicted more bomb explosion attacks on the nation.

In this recent interview with Oluwole Adeboye, hear what the prophet said:

You predicted the bomb explosion in Abuja and it came to pass. What can we do to avert more of these ugly incidents?
There are moles in the Presidency, the Senate, House Of Representatives, SSS, Nigeria Police Force, the Army, Air Force and the Navy who give information to these terrorists and President Goodluck Jonathan knows them too well but he is afraid to face them because of his second term ambition to rule the country. These people are also targeting shopping malls and markets.

Can’t prayers solve the menace of Boko Haram?
Why not? With prayers these problems could be solved but our leaders have soiled their hands in evil acts.
Most of them derive joy in seeing blood. If Jonathan comes back 100 times to rule this country, he won’t be able to solve the problems. He does not listen to the voice of God, flattery and deceit are good music to him.
When you praise him he is always happy. Most of the pastors he goes to are afraid to tell him the truth. There Is red signal all over the country.

What is your assessment of the ongoing confab?
The confab will speak the mind of the people but the government will not make use of the
recommendations.

What are your views on the prevailing political situation?
The leadership of All Progressives Congress are not ripe for the presidency. APC members will defect to the PDP before the 2015 elections and if APC refuses to give Muhammadu Buhari the ticket to contest the presidency he will quit. And there will be no election in some states.
The Minister Of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and Minister of Petroleum, Mrs. Diezani Allison-Maduekwe will face probes and challenges. All governors should pray so as not to lose four of their own to the cold hands of death.
We have not prayed enough, security intelligence does not recognise prophecy, bloodletting will continue.
On the abducted students, they will come out unhurt.
On Nollywood, actors and actresses must pray against death. On the Lagos Ibadan expressway, prayers should be made to avert accidents which could claim scores of lives

As the World Cup kicks off in June in Brazil, can the Super Eagle win the cup?
They will try but they won’t get to the semi-final. Coach Stephen Keshi will quit coaching the Super Eagles after the World Cup. The Nigeria Football Supporters Club will have serious problems to contend with.

What can you say about the missing Malaysian aircraft?
The Malaysian government should be held responsible because they know its whereabouts.

Confession Of A Hired Killer “Nigerian Politicians Hire Me To Kill Their Enemies”

Kogi state’s most wanted thug, Mr Abubakar
Abdulkarim has confessed of how Nigerian polticians employ him to assassinate their enemies.
He also narrated how he killed his latest victim, one Farouk Lawal, another thug who was allegedly hired by some unnamed politicians to eliminate him. Not only did he succeed in killing Lawal, he cut the deceased’s corpse into three, each of which was buried in three different local government areas in the state.
Abubakar who goes by the nickname, ‘Ijaw Boy’, is also known as ‘Ijogbon’ (which means trouble). He revealed that until he fell into the cold embrace of the law, he had killed so many people and lost count of the number.
For years, the dreaded thug and political assassin had been a thorn in the flesh of the Kogi State Police Command.
He told shocked newsmen that he was a master in the ‘art’ of killing, a skill he happily put at the disposal of influential politicians in Ebiraland, who allegedly hired him to either terrorize their opponents or summarily kill them.
A police source said that Abubakar was the brain
behind most of the political killings in Ebiraland.
The road to the end of Abubakar’s reign of terror,
assassination and thuggery began in February this
year, when he allegedly killed Lawal and escaped to Port Harcourt, Rivers State to seek refuge.
Incensed by the dastardly act, the police launched a nationwide manhunt for Abubakar. With excellent detective work, the police succeeded in arresting him in Port Harcourt and giving him a hard ride back to Kogi State.
In the course of interrogation, he recounted to the police how he killed Lawal who, he alleged, had been hired to eliminate him by some politicians who were uncomfortable with him being around after he claimed to have become born-again, following a visit to The Synagogue Church of All Nations in Lagos where he allegedly underwent deliverance therapy.
Addressing newsmen on the breakthrough achieved by the police in the case involving Abubakar, Kogi State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Seidu Madawaki said the suspect led detectives to the forest where he buried the head of Lawal.
Responding to questions when he was paraded before journalists, Abubakar said: “Yes, there is no denying the fact that I was the Commandant-General of all political thugs in Ebiraland. I have been hired severally to wreak havoc on political opponents and in doing this, with members of my gang, I have killed so many people and I found it difficult to stay alone without being haunted by the spirits of the dead. So, I decided to take solace in hard drugs.
“When the then governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Ibrahim Idris introduced the amnesty programme in 2010-2011, I actively participated and surrendered all my guns because the Commissioner of Police then threatened
to declare me wanted if I did not come out of hiding.
“Shortly after I surrendered all my guns and disbanded my gang, I was watching of Prophet T. B. Joshua on television one day when my heart was touched and I decided to change from my bad habits. I then travelled to Lagos and went to The Synagogue Church of All Nations, where I openly confessed my atrocities and the cleric prayed for me and conducted deliverance on me.
“But when I came back home, people were still not convinced about my repentance and confession. They suspected every of my movements and some politicians who were not comfortable with my new faith, sent another thug (Farouk Lawal) to kill me. He was busy trailing me. I thought it was a joke until he came to my house and killed my sister. He later abducted my pregnant wife and was about to kill her when my boys rescued her.
“Therefore, I decided that I had to kill the bastard for me to live my life, because he had vowed to kill me. Killing my enemy first is not a crime.”

Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State spent $10 million over a twenty-five trips or 600 hours of service. The governor hired a private jet, a Canadian Challenger 604 from Swiss-based Vista jet, an investigation by SaharaReporters has revealed.
Mr. Akpabio paid the sum to the jet charter company owned in part by Kola Aluko. Mr. Aluko is known to be quite close to Nigeria’s Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, and has been described as one of a few fronts for the minister’s extensive money laundering schemes.
Mr. Aluko was also instrumental to the private jet

caused the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to spent N10 billion naira to charter another Vista jet, Challenger 850 Aircraft marked OE-ILA which has now been moved out of Nigeria following an investigation launched by the House of Representatives.
The charter jet used by the governor was registered in Switzerland as OE-INI. The governor and his entourage used the jet on trips within Nigeria and Europe within the period. Records seen by SaharaReporters indicated that Mr. Akpabio spent close to $400,000 per day for
the period of the jet charter, which started in January 2010.
Mr. Akpabio later purchased a Bombardier jet for $45 million in 2012. SaharaReporters reported exclusively on the governor’s purchase of the jet.
A few months after splurging on the jet, Governor
Akpabio also bought a bullet-proof van from a US
armory company for $1 million dollars.
In 2012, Vista jet made at least 900 trips within the Nigerian airspace using four jets that were making at least three landings per day.
