Army kills 74 Boko Haram Militants in Borno

Nigeria's army said Friday it had killed 74 suspected Boko Haram fighters in a raid on insurgent camps in restive Borno state, the latest operation in the military's bid to crush a 4-year Islamist uprising.

"The operations, which involved ground and aerial assault...led to the destruction of the identified terrorists camps, killing 74 suspected militants," area army spokesman Mohammed Dole said of the Thursday raid in Borno in the northeast, Boko Haram's stronghold.

The strike targeted two villages in the Mainok local government area, not far from Borno's capital of Maiduguri, where Boko Haram was founded more than a decade ago.

It followed a Monday assault on Boko Haram camps in another part of Borno, which the military said left 37 Islamists dead.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to protect their assets from each other before marriage

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have agreed that they will keep their assets separate by drawing up a prenup before they tie the knot.

Both Kanye and Kim are committed to the marriage and they are NOT signing a prenup because they're worried the relationship might fall apart, but they are both business people and know given their vast wealth it's just the smart thing to do to have a prenup.

Kanye is reported to be worth $90 million and Kim $40 million.

Kim is especially insistant of a prenup, after her late father Robert Kardashian insisted the importance of a clear contract when it came to assests.

Even though they will keep their assets separate, they will have a fat joint account for living expenses.

Friday Fun: Riddle - What Am I?

Lol its friday lets have fun... Below is a riddle hope you can guess it!

I can be repeated,
But often not in the same way.
I can't be changed,
But can be rewritten.
I can be forgotten,
And can also be lost with death.
My first is in horses,
But not in ponies.
My last is in pretty,
But not in beautiful.

What am I?

SSS arrests fake born-again Boko Haram member in Enugu

The operatives of the State Security Service (SSS), in Enugu have arrested a 35-year-old man, who allegedly goes duping people in church with a false testimony that he was a Boko Haram member but has converted to Christianity.

Enugu State Director of SSS, Mr. Victor Duru, who addressed newsmen in Enugu yesterday, said the suspect, Daniel, aka 'Shuaibu Shehu Rabiu' started the deception in 2001 at the Christ Apostolic Church, Durumi, Area 1 Abuja.

He was reported to have lied to the pastors of the church that he was a Muslim, who converted to Christianity and was able to attract their sympathy and subsequent financial assistance.

On the basis of this, the suspect was said to have visited several churches sharing his false testimony and making money out of it.

The churches so far visited by the suspect, include Four Square Gospel Church, Bodeja, Glory Tabernacle, Bodeja, and End Time Awareness Church aka Wonderland, Monia, Christ Apostolic Church, Ajibode, Ibadan, all in Oyo State.

Others are Royal Church, Awka and the Spoken Word Church, Awka, Anambra State.

The SSS director said before his arrest, the suspect claimed to have been invited as a guest speaker in a youth programme by a Church in Awka Anambra State.

The suspect was also said to have claimed that while on his way back to Yola, Adamawa State, on August 21, the commercial bus he boarded broke down at 9th Mile in Enugu State. He had told his victims that because the driver of the bus refused to refund them their fares, he was stranded and that he called his host, who could not come to his aid, hence, he had to proceed to the now-demolished Mountain of Fire and Miracle Church, to solicit for help.

The Director of SSS urged Nigerians to be wary of people going about sharing bogus testimonies especially if the intention was to seek help or get money.

The 35-year-old suspect, who insisted that he was a missionary, told newsmen that he was neither a Christian nor a Muslim and that he was never a member of Boko Haram.

Pastor arraigned for allegedly raping 3 under-aged primary school children

A pastor, Emmanuel Mathew, 50, appeared before a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court for allegedly raping three pupils in a school at Mpape, Abuja.

Mathew, who is the general overseer of a church in Mpape and proprietor of the primary school where the victims attended, was arraigned on a five-count charge.

The prosecutor, Stanley Nwodo, told the court that the accused raped two seven-year-old and a nine-year-old pupils on different occasions in the school.

Nwodo said the offence contravened Section 283 of the penal code which, if convicted, attracted 14 years imprisonment, with an option of fine or both.

Mathew pleaded not guilty to the charges.

After arraignment, counsel for the accused, Mr Uya Yamah, urged the court to admit his client to bail.

The prosecutor did not oppose the application, because the accused had been on administrative bail.

In his ruling, Justice Husseini Baba-Yusuf, granted bail to the accused in the sum of N500,000 and a surety in like sum, while he adjourned the case till January 21, 2014.

18-yr-old victim of gang rape commits suicide

Gang Rape

An 18-year-old girl, allegedly gang-raped by three boys, has committed suicide at her Amarata residence. It is a suburb of Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.

The deceased, simply identified as Janet, was a native of Oduali in Abua/Odua Local Government Area of Rivers State.

She was reportedly gang-raped at gunpoint by the boys, who forced her into an uncompleted building last week, while she was on an errand for her elder sister.

A source said: "The girl was sad and devastated after the incident. After she narrated her experience, her sister's husband, who is a pastor, asked her to describe any of her attackers. She described one of them.

"The boy was traced to his house, but he had absconded. The pastor counselled her and promised to pursue the matter to a logical conclusion."

It was gathered that, unknown to her guardian, the distraught girl had decided to take her own life.

The source said the rape victim left behind a suicide note, after which she took a poisonous substance known as Sniper.

She was discovered groaning in pain, and taken to Gloryland Hospital, where she died.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Alex Akhigbe, confirmed the incident. He said the Police has launched investigation into the alleged rape charges filed by the girl's family.

I was paid $2500 for killing Tupac - Dexter Isaac

An inmate who is currently serving a life prison sentence plus 30 years for murder and robbery, named Dexter Isaac has claimed responsibility for shooting Tupac Shakur in Manhattan's Quad Studios in November 1994, setting off a chain reaction of violent reprisals that resulted in the eventual murder of both Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G, who was originally blamed for the assault.

In his statement he said he was paid $2,500 for the shooting by James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond, a music industry figure who is now the CEO of Czar Entertainment and the manager of the Game.

In the statement, Isaac apologized to Tupac and Biggie's families and said that he kept quiet until now because the statute of limitations for an assault charge has expired and he cannot be charged for the attack. Isaac also expressed regret for getting involved with Rosemond, whom he refers to as a "sucker."

Rosemond is currently a fugitive wanted by the DEA and federal marshals for his involvement with a cocaine trafficking operation.

Chinese couple sells daughter to buy iPhone


A Shanghai couple faces jail fo alleged human trafficking after "selling" their baby daughter and spending the money on an iPhone, expensive trainers and other luxury goods.

The pair, identified in local media only by their surnames, Mr Teng and Ms Zhang, put their third child up for adoption and were arrested by Shanghai prosecutors after they accepted money for the child.

They had been seeking between 30,000 yuan and 50,000 yuan (£3,000-£5,000) for the girl, who was advertised before she was born.

The couple already had two boys, but earlier this year Ms Zhang found herself "accidentally pregnant", the >Liberation Daily newspaper reported.

Both Teng and Zhang were unemployed, poorly educated and living off their parents. As soon as Ms Zhang began to show, she lied to her neighbours and said that she had a stomach tumour, using her illness as a cover. She then gave birth at home.

The investigators said the couple had told them they wanted the girl to have a better upbringing than they could afford, since they already had two children.

"We did not give the child away to obtain profit, but to give the child better guarantees," one had told them, the newspaper reported.

Last year, a teenager sold his kidney and used the proceeds to buy an iPhone and iPad.

Aviation minister Oduah admits buying N255m cars

The minister of aviation, Stella Oduah, has explained that threats to her life over reforms in the aviation sector and the general insecurity in the country prompted the purchase the two armoured BMW cars worth N127. 575 million each.

The online news portal, saharareporters, had claimed that it obtained documents which showed the paper trail of the transaction involving Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), First Bank and Coscharis Motors. The cars were purchased by NCAA from Coscharis Motors, paying through accounts with First Bank.

Special Assistant (Media) to the aviation minister, Joe Obi, told Punch that the vehicles were purchased to protect the minister from some external threats. He said the vehicles were procured in response to the clear and imminent threat to the minister's personal security and life following the bold steps she took to reposition the sector.

"When she came on board as the minister, she inherited a lot of baggage in terms of the concession and lease agreements in the sector, which were clearly not in the interest of the government and people of Nigeria.

"And so, she took bold steps and some of these agreements were reviewed and some were terminated, and these moves disturbed some entrenched interests in the sector, and within this period, she began to receive some imminent threats to her life; therefore, the need for the vehicles." Joe Obi said

Policemen threaten strike over transfer to troubled states

Some policemen from the Imo State Police Command have vowed to go on strike over their redeployment to some crisis-ridden states in the North.

The aggrieved policemen who met in Benin, Edo State capital, said they would start the strike in November.

They were demanding the reversion of the mass transfer of officers numbering about 100 from the cadre of Inspectors, Assistant Superintendent of Police and Chief Superintendent of Police to the troubled areas in the North.

The officers alleged that their transfer, which they described as punitive, was the handiwork of the Imo State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Muhammad Katsina, adding that some of them had remained on a rank for many years without promotion.

However, Police authorities have warned the affected officers to stop blackmailing the Force, saying that the redeployment would not be revisited or changed.

The Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, who was reacting to the threat of a strike by some policemen in Imo State Police Command, said that the Nigeria Police Force was a national organisation where police personnel could be deployed to serve in any part of the country.

Mba, while describing the
reported threat by the
policemen as a rumour, stated
that the same rumour was
peddled when some policemen
were transferred out of Lagos.

But Mba faulted the position of the protesting officers. He said that they could not choose where they would serve, noting that the policemen in the North had as much right as those in Imo State to serve in any part of the country.

"The Nigeria Police Force is a national police, not a state civil service or a state police force. The implication is that you can be asked to serve in any part of the country, and as a police officer, you don't have the right to choose where to serve or when to serve. It is a call to service. The benefits of being a police officer comes with the burden of discharging the responsibilities attached to being an officer and you can't choose the benefits and reject the responsibilities," he said.

Rapper Timbaland's wife files for divorce

Timbaland's wife has filed for divorce and she's not only demanding that he foot the bill for their kid, she wants him to pay for a kid he didn't even father, TMZ has learned.

Monique Mosley says in her divorce docs obtained by TMZ that although she and Timbaland have been married for 5 years, they've been a couple for twice that time.

In addition to their 5-year-old daughter, Monique has a 10-year-old from another relationship.

So why, you ask, is she asking for child support for both kids? Monique says Timbaland is the daddy by default, since he's "publicly and privately proclaimed this child as his own."

But that's not all. Monique wants alimony, life insurance, private school, vacations, summer camp and other expenses. She says she's so strapped for cash, she had to borrow money from a friend to pay her lawyer.

She wants Timbaland who's worth around $80 million to foot the lawyer's bill. She wants to get Timbaland coming and going. In the alimony department, she says she wants money while divorce proceedings are pending, she wants a lump sum, she wants "rehabilitative alimony," and permanent alimony.

Music video director Sesan reacts to Skelewu video shot by him


Following the critics and Davido's tweets which revealed he wasn't satisfied with the Skelewu video that went online yesterday, he will re-shoot the video and that the video was leaked and its not the official video, Music video director Sesan released a statement today regarding the Skelewu video which was shot by him. See his statement below;

My attention is drawn toward the chaos surrounding the release of the Skelewu video . Myself and my team shot the video for Davido in Nigeria and to the best of my knowledge my client and his team were very happy with the result, when they watched/ and approved the video. If he has since had a change of heart, that is ok. I am not in any way responsible for the release of the video. I believe Davido and myself did a very good job regarding the video production and as a professional of over 10 years. I find it very irresponsible and immature if my client and his management publicly put out false statements/comments, in an attempt to tarnish my name, credibility and reputation.

I remain dedicated, humble, focused and as hard working as ever. Thank you to all my fans and industry professionals - Stay blessed.
