COULD THIS BE TRUE? ... WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH WOMEN THESE DAYS? : Mother & daughter fight over boyfriend in Asaba (DETAILS) ... YNaij

A 42-year- old housewife in Asaba, Delta State  on Sunday, engaged her 17 year-old daughter in a fight for allegedly snatching her boyfriend.
Eyewitness said that a scene was created around St. Brigid’s Girls College, Asaba, Sunday afternoon after both of them exchanged blows.
As both of them engaged themselves in a fight, motorists on the popular busy road stopped to watch what one of them described as a show of shame.
The mother allegedly “snatched” the daughter’s boyfriend, who works in one of the oil companies in Warri.
The daughter was said to have become furious when she heard that her boyfriend was caught pants down with her mother in an hotel in the state.
The trouble between the mother and her daughter became aggravated when the ‘lover boy’ began to act in a strange manner towards the girl.
While the show of shame between them lasted, the daughter was said to have called the mother a shameless woman and a prostitute, who drove the father out of the house with her demands for too much sex.

THE AMAZON SPEAKS UP : Airport harassment, my story –Ezekwesili ... PunchNews

A former Minister of Education and a champion of the #BringBackOurGirls Campaign, Mrs. Obiageli Ezekwesili, has narrated her ordeals in the hands of security operatives at the Abuja International Airport on Monday.
Ezekwesili was delayed for over 40 minutes by men of the Department of State Security, who harassed her based on “orders from above.”
Narrating her ordeals to members of the Christian Association of Nigerian-Americans, to whom she is a trustee on Tuesday, Ezekwesili gave a blow by blow account of her ordeals in the hands of DSS.
This was contained in a statement by the CANAN Executive Director, Pastor Laolu Akande, after the former minister visited the group in London.
Akande quoted Ezekwesili as saying that, “I arrived at the airport yesterday (on Monday) to travel to London on British Airline. First, after the luggage screening section, I moved to the Customs people, sitting right next to it and do a more thorough bag search. Rather than they handling my luggage as is the practice, there were three SSS men, who rudely took over before they could do so, and ordered me to open my bag.
“I was travelling light, with just my hand luggage leather roll on and my computer bag. I placed the bag for them (to see) and one was already furiously frisking through it when the Customs advised that a woman be allowed to do it. She was allowed and she did it.
“She finished, zipped up the luggage and they said I could proceed. But I asked that the computer bag be also searched, and they did.
“I went on to do my checking and got my boarding pass, and was swiftly done. I arrived the Departure Immigration Desk at about 7.15am and presented my passport and forms. The Immigration staff did his processing and handed to the SSS official. Usually, their entire process lasts no more than five to 10 minutes on a passport. As a frequent traveller through our Lagos and Abuja airports, I speak based on experience and evidence. Even on the same day, the process for other travellers that I witnessed did not last more than five minutes. But on Monday, it became five, 10, 15 and 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 minutes for the Departure Desk processing for me, with no explanation given except “We act under instruction.”
Ezekwesili said after 10 minutes of waiting, she asked the officer why her passport was not handed over to her.
“He responded, “I am not doing this personally madam. I am simply acting based on instruction, and you of all persons should understand that.”
“When it was 20 minutes into the process, and with BA announcing the final boarding call for the 8am flight, the officer walked out of the cubicle, heading off. I followed him, asking where he was going without giving back my passport nor an explanation on why it was being withheld. His nonchalant response was “just wait. I am trying to help you”.
“It became evident that they withheld the passport to detain me at their departure desk in order to miss the flight. That was when I tweeted @ 7.37am “@obyezeks: Is this a democracy? I am being detained by the SSS @ Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport. The SSS has refused to give my passport to me.” At 7.41am “@obyezeks: On my way to London this morning for my @BBCHARDtalk appearance billed for tomorrow and the SSS has detained me by withholding my passport.”

“At that point, I brought out my phone to record him even as I asked for the passport. He got angry and charged at me that he would seize my phone. Then his colleague screamed at him a third time to handover the passport. He did,” she said.



President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan condemns the bombings in Kaduna today which appeared to have targeted former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari and prominent Islamic Cleric, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi.
President Jonathan denounces the dastardly targeting of the prominent political and religious leaders by terrorists and enemies of the nation in an odious attempt to inflame passions and exacerbate disquiet, fear, insecurity and sectional divisions in the country.   
While thanking God Almighty for sparing the lives of General Buhari and Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, the President extends sincere condolences to the families of those who were sadly killed by the bomb blasts.
President Jonathan also commiserates with all those who were injured in the twin bombings in this Holy Month of Ramadan which defy the tenets of Islam, and provide further proof that the terrorists are nothing but blood-thirsty extremists bent on undermining the unity and progress of the nation.
The President assures residents of Kaduna and all other Nigerians that the Federal Government will continue and further intensify its ongoing efforts to effectively curb the menace of terrorism in the country.
He has specifically directed the Police and other national security agencies to take all necessary actions to apprehend the perpetrators of today’s attacks on Kaduna and urges all residents of the city to give them the fullest possible cooperation and support as they work to bring the terrorists to justice.

Buhari car after bomb attack
The former head of state said he was the target of the blast.
Former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari has described how he narrowly escaped a bomb attack on his convoy Wednesday in Kaduna.
In a short statement, Mr. Buhari said he was the target of the bomber.
“I was personally involved in a clearly targeted bomb attack today along Ali Akilu Road, Kawo-Kaduna at about 2:30pm on my way to Daura,” Mr. Buhari said.
“The unfortunate event, clearly an assassination attempt, came from a fast moving vehicle that made many attempts to overtake my security car but was blocked by my escort vehicle.
“We reached the market area of Kawo where he took advantage of our slowing down and attempted to ram my car and instantly detonated the bomb which destroyed all the three cars in our convoy,” Mr. Buhari said.
The former leader said when he came down from his vehicle, he saw many dead bodies littered around.
“They were innocent people going about their daily business who became victims of mass murder,” he said.
The attack on Mr Buhair followed an earlier blast in Kaduna Wednesday targeting a senior Islamic cleric, Dahiru Bauchi. Mr. Bauchi also escaped unhurt, but police said 25 people died.
The spokesperson of Mr. Buhari’s All Progressive Congress, [APC], Lai Mohammed, also said the explosion was targeted at the former head of state.
“Yes, his convoy was attacked,” Mr. Mohammed said in response to PREMIUM TIMES enquiry. “He narrowly escaped but some of his aides were hurt. The General is ok, but perhaps traumatised.”
A loyalist of Mr. Buhari, Rotimi Fashakin, said the former head of state was on his way to his home town – Daura in neighbouring Katsina state – when he was trailed by the bomber and attacked.
“I’m sure political Boko Haram are behind the attack,” Mr. Fashakin said. “General Buhari was the target of the attack.”
The leader of a pro-Buhari pressure group, The Buhari Vanguard, Jasper Azuatalam, said the former Nigerian leader was possibly attacked over his recent criticism of President Goodluck Jonathan.
“Recall that two days ago, Gen Muhammadu Buhari issued a statement warning President Jonathan and his government on their attempt to muscle the opposition and endanger Nigeria,” Mr. Azuatalam said. “The Presidency raised an eyebrow to the statement.”
Governor Muktar Yero has announced a 24 hour curfew in Kaduna metropolis.

YEYE DE SMELL : EFCC declares Nyako wanted; quizzes his former deputy, Ngilari ... DailyPost

A former Governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako has been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over allegations of sleaze.
His erstwhile deputy, Bala Ngilari, was also on Tuesday quizzed over the management of the state’s resources, but was released on administrative bail.
Confirming the development, EFCC spokesman Wilson Uwujaren, told the Nigerian Tribune that the decision to declare Nyako wanted was borne out of the inability to track him down for service of summons on him.
He said, “There has been an on-going probe, even when he was governor, but we could not invite him then because of the immunity he enjoyed.
“When he is no longer a governor, all efforts to even serve summons on him were abortive, as he could not be reached at all.
“He could also not be contacted, either personally or through others means of formally inviting him to answer certain questions concerning the investigation being carried out in the state. The commission had no choice but to declare him wanted.”
He added that “I can also confirm to you that the former deputy governor (Ngilari) was here (EFCC’s headquarters in Abuja) today (Tuesday).”
Nyako, who fled the country days before his impeachment by the state legislature, had given an hint of the latest development, days before he was removed.
