Former Governor of Anambra state and chieftain of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) this evening defected to the ruling People's Democratic Party, PDP. He made his decision known after a meeting with members of the South East zone of the PDP at his residence in Onitsha, Anambra state.

Speaking through his media aide this evening, Mr Obi who said his defection was to enable him become a competitor and not a spectator in national affairs. The former governor had maintained for a while now that he will not seek any further elective position.

Looks like the US is considering screening passengers from Ebola hit countries before they enter the country. This is coming about a week after a Liberian man entered the country with Ebola. President Obama said yesterday that though the likelihood of an Ebola outbreak in the US is "extremely low' but they have to react.
"We're also going to be working on protocols to do additional passenger screening both at the source and here in the United States. Countries that think that they can sit on the sidelines and just let the United States do it, that will result in a less effective response, a less speedy response, and that means that people die."
"And it also means that the potential spread of the disease beyond these areas in West Africa becomes more imminent," President Obama said at the White House briefing with US health officials
The Liberian man who became the first case of Ebola diagnosed on American soil, Thomas Eric Duncan, is in a critical condition in a hospital isolation unit in Dallas.

The Director General of the Nigerian Institute of Leather Science & Technology (NILEST), Zaria, Dr Isuwa Adamu, has said that consumption of animal hides and skin, popularly known as Ponmo is dangerous to human health. Speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, today in Abuja, Adamu said scientific research has shown that ponmo doesn't have any nutritional value to human health and that some of the animals where ponmo is gotten from are usually sick & harbor dangerous chemicals.
"In fact, it is not advisable for you to consume ponmo in the sense that some of the animals killed and used for ponmo actually have skin diseases. Some of these skin diseases are such that boiling them ordinarily, may not kill the bacteria. Some of the animals because of the ailments that they have gone through, are sometimes treated by way of injection with chemicals. 
People don’t allow these chemicals to complete its cycle and be removed from the body; they sometimes go ahead to kill these animals. So, if you consume the ponmo, the tendency is that you are consuming the chemicals directly because the skin part of the animal retains most of the harmful substances. Remember your skin is the major protective organ of your body and your skin harbours so many of the harmful things that are supposed to penetrate into your body,” he explained.
He advised the Federal government to put in place policies that would reduce the consumption of Ponmoin Nigeria.

Ajani Yahaya (24) of Mapo area of Ibadan, Oyo State has been arrested for raping an underaged girl.
Instead of purchasing only the dry meat, popularly known as Tinko in Yoruba, that a 14-year-old girl (names withheld)   was hawking for sale, he allegedly decided to get another service he was not offered by forcefully having unlawful carnal knowledge of the girl.

The girl, a secondary school student on holiday, was said to be living at Yemetu Adeoyo area of the city with her aunt whom she helps in hawking dry meat for sale.On getting to Mapo on the day of the incident, Crime Reports learnt that Yahaya asked the girl to bring her wares upstairs where he lived and the girl complied. But on getting to him, he allegedly used a handkerchief to cover her mouth and dragged her into his room.

According to the girl,

    “I tried to shout but my voice could not get far and no one heard me. He raised my skirt and forcefully removed my underpants, after which he had his way. After he finished, he used the handkerchief to clean my private part. As I was about to leave, he started begging me and offered me N500. When I refused, he shouted and threatened me so I collected it from him.

Afraid of what might likely be the consequence of wiping her vulva region with a handkerchief, the girl reported what happened to her when she returned home, prompting her guardian to report the case at Mapo police station.

The girl however said that Yahaya was not the one who deflowered her, as she had a boyfriend called Azeez with whom she used to have sex. But she maintained that the suspect forced himself on her.

When interviewed by Crime Reports at the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yahaya, an Ibadan indigene who fixes floor tiles, gave conflicting stories about what happened on that Sunday. At first, he denied seeing the girl on that particular day because he went to a party with his mother. Later, he admitted being at home. He also said he purchased dry meat from the girl but added that the girl must have told a lie against him because he did not give her the money she requested for.

    “Khadijat told a lie against me that I forcefully had carnal knowledge of her. There was nothing between us apart from the fact that I used to buy dried meat from her. On that Sunday, my mother and I went out. I didn’t know what happened till the next day when police came to arrest me,” he said.

When prodded, based on his statement to the police, Yahaya changed his former narration and said:

    “That Sunday evening around 6p.m., it is true that I called the girl to sell dry meat for me. Before that day, we used to relate and usually joked with ourselves.
    “When I paid her, she told me that she misplaced money, and I should assist her. Unfortunately, I was broke, so I pleaded with her not to be angry, but she insisted that I should give her something. I angrily collected my change from her she also left angrily. Before God and man, I never had sex with her. I never wooed her either.”

 Islamic militants in Iraq have created slave markets, trading and selling women and children of Christian and Yazidi groups, according to UN investigators.
At least 2,500 women and children have been imprisoned, sexually abused and sold for around $10 each by Isis slavers.

According to the International Business Times,The slave markets in the al-Quds area of Mosul in Iraq and Raqqa in Syria have been used as a way of attracting new recruits to Islamic State, the UN said according to a Times report.

Women who were captured at the end of August managed to contact the UN, having kept hold of their mobile phones. They reported being subject to sexual assaults
One 13-year-old Yazidi girl gave a harrowing account of what happened to her after she was abducted by Isis from her village on 3 August.

    "She stated that ISIL [Islamic State] took hundreds of women who had not been able to flee to Jabal Sinjar,""The girl stated that she was raped several times by several ISIL fighters, before she was sold to a market."

One Yazidi woman was given to 10 Islamic State men.

    "We were sold for $10 or $12. Who could accept that behaviour? Can God accept that?" the woman told Euronews. "It's a shame to rape a woman, but when she is raped by 10 men... what is this? They are animals, they are not humans. Because of them I am afraid all the time."

She managed to flee her captors with the help of sympathetic local residents and sought safety in Mosul.

A 17-year-old woman said she was being held captive with 40 other Yazidi women by Islamic State fighters.The newspaper was able to interview her by calling her on her mobile phone, after being given the number by her parents, who are in a refugee camp in Iraqi Kurdistan.

    "I beg you not to publish my name because I'm so ashamed of what they are doing to me. There's a part of me that just wants to die. But there is another part of me that still hopes that I will be saved and that I will be able to embrace my parents once again,"

    We've asked our jailers to shoot us dead, to kill us, but we are too valuable for them. They keep telling us that we are unbelievers because we are non-Muslims and that we are their property, like war booty. They say we are like goats bought at a market."

A woman and her four children, all boys, were found dead in their residence at 8 Kunle Owooade Close, in the Itamaga area of Ikorodu, Lagos yesterday October 1st.
The family were discovered yesterday in their home with three of them already decomposing. Three of the boys were in one room, while the mother and the youngest boy were found in another room. One was actually found alive but barely clinging to life. He died on his way to the hospital.

A neighbour said the last time the family was seen alive was on Friday September 26th. Neighbours decided to check on the family when they noticed an offensive odour coming from their building, where they lived alone. The woman's husband is said to have died about four years ago.

When they knocked and nobody opened, they decided to break the door and found the dead bodies. Nobody knows for sure what killed the family but some neighbours attributed to food poisoning while others think it generator fumes.

The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, yesterday broke his silence over the $9.3m arms deal scandal in which his private jet was used to carry the huge sum of money out of Nigeria to South Africa. Speaking at the National Executive Council meeting of CAN at the National Christian Center in Abuja, Pastor Oritsejafor absolved himself of any wrong doing, saying he would never do anything that would tarnish the image of Jesus Christ

"I wish to assure you that I will not do anything to tarnish the image of Jesus Christ or compromise the divine standard of the church. As you are all aware, the media has been awashed in the past few days about an unfortunate incident involving the movement of funds from Nigeria to South Africa. In the unfortunate news reports, attempts have been made to link me directly with the transaction. So far, I have refrained from making any direct public response pending the time that I would have briefed the leaders of the church and explained my position on the issues to them.
I believe that the primary institution that I owe any explanation to is the church. At the risk of being seen to be defending myself, I wish to confirm to the distinguished leaders of the church that the Bombardier Challenger 601 aircraft in question is mine. The aircraft was presented to me as a gift by members of our congregation and ministry partners worldwide at my 40th anniversary of my call into the ministry. May I be permitted to stress that the aircraft was not given to me by the President of Nigeria, neither was it a settlement for any political favour or patronage. With the benefit of hindsight, the President of the country was a guest in our church during the anniversary celebration when the jet was presented to me. This has construed an implication that it was a gift from the President of the country. The President of Nigeria has nothing to do with the gift of the aircraft. By the way, I still wonder why all those saying this cannot come out to show proof so that the matter can be put to rest once and for all. Let me say that this might be an issue of the court in the near future ”he said
He said he was also shocked and distressed at finding out what the private jet which he leased to the company managing it used it for, adding that there is a war being waged against the church in Nigeria
"Based on this, I leased the aircraft on August 2, 2014, to a company to run it. It was the lease that entered into an agreement with the people who carried out the transfer of funds. Having leased the aircraft to the Green Coast Produce Company Limited, any transaction undertaken with the aircraft can no longer be attached to me. Inasmuch as I am shocked and distressed by the incident, I wish to appeal to Christians in Nigeria to remember that a war has been waged against the Nigerian church. This war is being fought on many fronts and this unfortunate incident is another dimension in the assault against the church." He said
He went further to state that;

"The media hype and the deliberate distortion of information that followed it confirmed that forces that desperately desire to cause division and disunity in the church are at work. Even the devil knows that a house that is divided cannot stand. As Christians, we need unity in the church now more than ever. We are witnessing inhuman attacks by religious extremists against Christians in the northern part of the country, while christian infrastructure is being destroyed in hundreds. If we permit the enemy divide us, our chances of corporate survival shall be severely threatened. Distinguished leaders of the church, please permit me to state clearly before God and before all of you here present today, that I am not a party to the movement of $9.3m from Nigeria to South Africa to purchase arms and ammunition. I am not part of the deal. I know nothing about it.” he said

A 16-year-old secondary school student has narrated how her own father impregnated her and is the father of her son, who is also the man's grand son. The 42-year-old man, Segun Oderinde, comes from the Oderinde family in Gboro Compound, Igbeti, Olorunsogo Local Government area of Oyo State and right now, the randy father is nowhere to be found as he has developed wings and bolted.

The girl who narrated her ordeal, said her father was in the habit of flexing his muscles on her every other night despite the fact that he has two other wives and that led to the pregnancy that produced the baby boy which has been named Boluwatife, which means 'As God wills'.

This is how the poor girl narrated her story:

I was living with my mother until 2013 when my father asked me to come and live with him. On December 25, 2013, my father woke me up and asked to remove my clothes but I refused.

He drew a cutlass and threatened to kill me if I did not do his bidding. Afraid, I removed my clothes and he forcefully had sex with me. He was the first man to sleep with me because I had never had sex before then.

The following day, I reported to one of his two wives who was a nurse and she promised to ask him, but I don’t know whether she eventually did.

In March, 2014, he did the same thing again and I ran to his second wife’s house and reported to her. She asked me to swear to an oath with a bible but I refused since I knew I was saying the truth. I started sleeping in her apartment.

In April, he came to tell me to return to his apartment to do some things for him but I refused to go. His wife however put pressure on me to answer my father’s call since he wanted me to do some things for him at home. I followed him after much pressure.

Unfortunately for me, on Saturday preceding Easter celebration, precisely on April 18, he had sex with me again. All the while, I did not know I was pregnant. I had my last menstruation in December 2013.

My stepmother suspected I was pregnant and took me to one Mrs. Aremu who confirmed the pregnancy. The case was reported at the police station and I started living with my paternal grandfather until I fell into labour. My mother wanted the pregnancy to be aborted but the doctor said he could not do it.

After I was delivered of the baby and my grandfather was told that the baby has a striking resemblance with my father, he ran away and has not been seen since then.

Since the confirmation of the pregnancy, the DPO and the DCO were the ones who purchased baby things and other items that I would need during and after delivery. They also paid my hospital bill. I now stay with my mother and she is helping me to take care of the baby.
President Goodluck Jonathan was in Benin City, Edo state on September 27 to attend a PDP rally and commission a portion of the Benin-Ore Road, President Goodluck Jonathan visited Edo state on September 27, 2014 and was received by the state Governor, Adams Oshiomhole.
The tension on the governor’s face could be seen in almost all the photos he took and in one of them he actually seemed to be avoiding a handshake from the president.
Oshiomhole belongs to the All Progressives Congress so he couldn’t have found it funny when Jonathan declared that the Peoples Democratic Party would regain control of Edo state.
Or was the governor afraid of Ebola?

A female airforce pilot who made headlines after her pictures were published for participating in airstrikes against ISIS,has been disowned by her family.
Mariam Al Mansouri's participation in F-16 bombing raids for the UAE is frowned upon by her family who call her an ingrate and showed their support for ISIS.An anonymous statement released by the family reads.....
 In the name of God All Merciful.

    'O ye who believe! Take not your fathers or your brethren for friends if they favour disbelief over faith. Those of you who taketh them for friends are wrong-doers.' [Quranic verse]

 'Renouncement of Mariam Al Mansouri:

    'We the Mansouri family in the United Arab Emirates hereby publicly declare that we disown the so-called Mariam Al Mansouri as well as anyone taking part in the brutal international aggression against the brotherly Syrian people, starting with our ingrate daughter Mariam Al Mansouri.

    'We hereby remind the Muslim nation all over the world of its duty to defend the causes of the nation [meaning the Islamic nation], and we urge them to take up the jihad [holy war] for the sake of God to support the blessed Syrian revolution against the descendants of Ibn Al Alqami.' [Sunni Islamist insurgents refer to the Shi'a as 'alqami' - a reference to Mu'ayyad al-Din Muhammad Ibn al-Alqami, a Shi'ite minister in the last Abbasid caliphate, who purportedly assisted the Mongols in conquering Baghdad in 1258.]
    'We call upon all factions and battalions operating on the Syrian battleground to unite and join efforts and forces towards the single objective of overthrowing the monstrous Assad regime perched on the pure and blessed Syrian land.
    'Al Mansouri family, in the UAE and abroad, takes this opportunity to declare its support for the blessed Syrian revolution and to all free men defending their rights everywhere in the world.
    'Our family is proud of all free men who defend their cause and of all those who take up arms to defend the honour of their nation [The Islamic Nation}. We are proud of the Sunni heroes in Iraq and the Levant and all those who take up the banner of righteousness wherever they may be. We may not know them, but God knows them and would champion them.
    'We ask our countrymen not to burden us with the consequences of the actions of the so-called Mariam Al Mansouri. All the honourable members of our family have agreed to this statement. 

 'Al Mansouri family.'
