PDP Youth Give Sheriff 7-Day Ultimatum To Apologise To Jonathan

Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, youths on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 asked the party’s controversial national chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, to apologise to former President Goodluck Jonathan for walking out on the latter and other PDP leaders at the party’s stakeholders meeting in Abuja last week. The youths, under the aegis of the Amalgamated PDP Youth Leaders Nationwide, said at a press briefing in Abuja that it was an embarrassment for Sheriff to have walked out on Jonathan, who they described as the leader of the party. Chairman of the group, Segun Aderemi, said Sheriff disrespected the party when he walked out on Jonathan and other party leaders during the meeting. Aderemi added that the youths in the party would not want anyone to disrespect Sheriff, as leader of the party, as such he too should not disrespect other PDP leaders. He, however, said that as a result of his action, the youths have given Sheriff seven days counting from today to tender an unreserved apology to Jonathan and other party leaders, for embarrassing them through his conduct last Thursday. “We witnessed what happened that day when he walked out on the former President. Would Sheriff be happy if any member of the party embarrass him the way he embarrassed Jonathan that day? “He has to tender an unreserved apology to the former President, the BoT and other leaders of the party. “We insist he should tender an unreserved apology. We strongly believe that he is going to do the needful,” Aderemi stated. He said the youth of the party don’t have anything against Sheriff or the chairman of the National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, adding that their interest is the immediate resolution of the PDP crisis.

3 Years On: 10 Facts About The Chibok School Abduction

Three years ago, the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls by the jihadist group Boko Haram in Chibok in northeastern Nigeria sparked global outrage and a celebrity-backed campaign #bringbackourgirls. For more than two years there was no sign of the girls who were kidnapped by the Islamist fighters from their secondary school in Chibok in northeastern Borno State in April 2014. But the discovery of one of the girls with a baby last May raised hopes for their safety, with a further two girls found in later months and a group of 21 released in October in a deal brokered by Switzerland and the International Red Cross. Nigeria is facing mounting pressure to find the estimated 195 girls still held captive by the jihadist group. Here are 10 key facts about the Chibok schoolgirls and Boko Haram: * Since 2009, Boko Haram has waged an insurgency to carve out an Islamic state in northeast Nigeria that has killed at least 20,000 people and displaced more than two million. * The most high-profile attack took place on April 14, 2014, when Boko Haram kidnapped 276 schoolgirls from a secondary school in Chibok in northeast Borno state. Around 50 of the girls escaped in the initial melee but 219 were captured. * Nigeria’s government and military, then under the command of former president Goodluck Jonathan, faced heavy criticism for their handling of the incident, with towns and cities across the nation witnessing protests. * The kidnappings sparked a strong social media reaction, with the phrase #bringbackourgirls tweeted around 3.3 million times by mid-May 2014, and the global campaign which followed backed by then U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama. * Hope for the girls was briefly raised in April 2015 when the Nigerian military announced it had rescued 200 girls and 93 women from the Sambisa forest, northeast of Chibok. It was later revealed that the Chibok girls were not among them. * One of the Chibok girls, Amina Ali, was rescued in May. Held for months by the Nigerian government, she told her mother that the girls were starved and resorted to eating raw maize, and that some had died in captivity, suffered broken legs or gone deaf after being too close to explosions. * At least 2,000 girls and boys have been kidnapped by Boko Haram since the beginning of 2014, according to Amnesty International, which says they are used as cooks, sex slaves, fighters and even suicide bombers. * Boko Haram have used 27 children to carry out suicide attacks in West Africa in the first three months this year, almost surpassing the total of 30 child bombings during 2016, said the U.N. children’s agency UNICEF. * Nigeria is in talks with Boko Haram militants over the release of more of the abducted Chibok girls, according to a mediator involved in the discussions. * The militants split last year with one faction moving away from the group’s established figurehead Abubakar Shekau over his failure to adhere to guidance from Islamic State to which Boko Haram pledged allegiance in 2015. via Reuters

BREAKING: Dogara Releases His Pay Slip For 6 Months [LOOK]

Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives, has released his pay slips for six months. The pay slips were on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 released by Turaki Hassan, his spokesperson. The documents showed the breakdown of the speaker’s salary for October, November, December 2016 and January, February, March 2017. According to the documents, Dogara earns about N300,000 after tax deductions have been made. The release of the pay slips comes 24 hours after Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna, published the breakdown state’s budget among other items. El-Rufai had also called on principal officers of the national assembly to follow suit. “Governor Nasir El-Rufai would like to reiterate his call for the NASS leadership to do the same and disclose the details of the National Assembly budget, and the salaries and allowances of its leadership,” he had said. “The call to #OpenNASS is not a personal one. It is one which the leadership of the national assembly owes to all Nigerians. “It is therefore disingenuous for the speaker to use state government budgets as the excuse for the opacity of the NASS budget. “There is no state government in Nigeria with a budget nearly as opaque as that of NASS. In March 2016, this national assembly, led by its chairman, promised to provide a detailed breakdown of the national assembly budget. Nigerians are waiting,” El-Rufai said. See the payslips below.

Controversial Blogger, Kemi Olunloyo, Granted N1 Million Bail After 23 Days In Prison

Kemi Olunloyo, daughter of Omololu Olunloyo, former governor of Oyo state, has been granted bail by a federal high court sitting in Port Harcourt. The blogger, who was arrested on March 14 by officers of the Oyo state criminal investigation department office, was granted bail in the sum of N1 million. Olunloyo was arrested alongside a Port Harcourt-based publisher, Samuel Walson, for allegedly publishing materials believed to have defamed a cleric, David Ibiyeomie, pastor of Salvation ministries. Following her arrest, Olunloyo took to her Instagram page to allege that she was moved to Port Harcourt from Ibadan on the orders of the inspector general of police. Dear Media, friends, fans. I was driven by the NPF to Port Harcourt on orders of the IG. Pastor David Ibiyeomie says I criminally defamed him because I posted a letter his church member sent to me alleging corruption and adultery. Both newsmakers refused to answer the allegations but Ibiyeomie called me several times to threaten me with lawsuits, death from above and misfortune. Church spokesman did the same with Danielle Ogbeche of Daily Post too. I have been charged with a cybercrime along with a Rivers state journalist who simply syndicated my story. 500 blogs did. Cybercrime? in the Nigerian constitution and remanded in prison. Next week 23rd I appear in court again for a second bail attempt. I will be in this Port Harcourt prison till then. THE PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD. #Journalism is not a crime. I love you all. Pls trend #FreeKOO #FreeMadamHNN. @ludovicca_iacinno pls tell the world. Tweet it to the Toronto Sun’s @Joe_warmington. Pls every one let Joe know. I’m in high spirits. The NPF recommended NO bail. Police is never your friend in Nigeria. I will always be a proud international investigative journalist. I will not see my phone again for a week. Off to a Nigerian prison. Mass Comm students never give up. I don’t need my powerful connections. I want the law to run its course. GOD BLESS #FREETHESHEEPLE #KEMIOLUNLOYO A post shared by HNNAFRICA (@hnnafrica) on Mar 16, 2017 at 6:56am PDT “I was driven by the NPF to Port Harcourt on orders of the inspector general.

The charges against Walson were dropped leaving Olunloyo to continue the trial alone. This article originally appeared on TheCable.

So, Sambisa Has Been Cleared? Where Are Chibok Girls, Then? – Cardinal Onaiyekan

John Onaiyekan, a cardinal and Catholic archbishop of Abuja diocese, says the federal government needs to step up its efforts to rescue the kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls. He said having cleared Sambisa forest, the government should have made headway in the rescue of the abducted girls. Onaiyekan said this on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 during a solidarity march organised by the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement as part of its campaign for the release of the girls. The movement is commemorating the three years anniversary of the continued captivity of the girls. “The families of the girls are still languishing and we think there is need to bring attention to that. We are told that the Sambisa forest has been cleared totally. So the question we are asking today is where are our girls,” he said. “Government should do more to release the girls and to also address the issue of kidnapping in our country.” Also speaking during the march was Sheik Muhammad Khalid, chief Imam of the national assembly quarters’ mosque. The imam said Boko Haram would have “relatively” won the war if the Chibok girls are not rescued. “We can never allow the terrorists to have their way. If they get free with those girls, then they have relatively won the war. We want more actions from our government. The soul of all Nigerians are important,” he said. “Today’s match adds a new angle to the series of similar ones that has been ongoing since Saturday, April 8, 2017. This is because it features the face of Nigeria’s two major religions.” The Chibok schoolgirls were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents on April 14, 2014, in Borno state. So far, only 21 of them have been released while 57 have successfully escaped. 195 of them, however, remain in captivity. This article originally appeared on TheCable.

Chinese Woman To Get New Nose, Lips Which Surgeons Grew On Her Chest

In six months,  a 27-year-old woman Jin Qi is expected to have a nose and a mouth after losing them 25 years ago, thanks to a revolutionary reconstruction surgery by Chinese surgeons in Shanghai and a process that allows the cultivation of the facial parts on the woman’s chest. Jin underwent a surgery lasting more than 10 hours on Monday to have her missing facial organs reshaped. Jin is scheduled to receive four surgeries to get a new nose and mouth, according to Li Qingfeng, team leader for her rehabilitation and reconstruction, from the Ninth People’s Hospital affiliated to the School of Medicine, Shanghai Jiaotong University. Li’s team applied a concept and technology of “repairing” to cultivate nose and upper lip tissues on the patient’s chest area for transplant. Li’s solution allows Jin to depend on herself instead of a face transplant from someone else, which was seen as a major breakthrough in the field. Jin suffered a high fever and a rare sepsis at the age of one. Born in a remote village in Yunxi County, Shiyan City in central China’s Hubei Province, Jin and her family did not have access to adequate medical information and service. Unfortunately Jin lost her nose, lips and the facial organization around them. Monday’s surgery aimed to expand the flap and correct maxillary deformities. Li’s team applied a concept and technology of “repairing” to cultivate nose and upper lip tissues on the patient’s chest area for transplant. Li’s solution allows Jin to depend on herself instead of a face transplant from someone else, which was seen as a major breakthrough in the field. This article originally appeared in China Daily.

Boko Haram: Trump Stands By Obama Era Pledge To Sell High-tech Warplanes To Buhari

The Trump administration will move forward with the sale of high-tech aircraft to Nigeria for its campaign against Boko Haram Islamic extremists despite perceived fears over abuses committed by the country’s security forces, according to U.S. officials. Congress is expected to receive formal notification within weeks, setting in motion a deal with Nigeria that the Obama administration had planned to approve at the very end of Barack Obama’s presidency. The arrangement will call for Nigeria to purchase up to 12 Embraer A-29 Super Tucano aircraft with sophisticated targeting gear for nearly $600 million, one of the officials said. The officials were not authorized to discuss the terms of the sale publicly and requested anonymity to speak about internal diplomatic conversations. Though President Donald Trump has made clear his intention to approve the sale of the aircraft, the National Security Council is still working on the issue. Military sales to several other countries are also expected to be approved but are caught up in an ongoing White House review. Nigeria has been trying to buy the aircraft since 2015. The Nigerian air force has been accused of bombing civilian targets at least three times in recent years. In the worst incident, a fighter jet on Jan. 17 repeatedly bombed a camp at Rann, near the border with Cameroon, where civilians had fled from Boko Haram. Between 100 and 236 civilians and aid workers were killed, according to official and community leaders’ counts. That bombing occurred on the same day the Obama administration intended to officially notify Congress the sale would go forward. Instead, it was abruptly put on hold, according to an individual who worked on the issue during Obama’s presidency. Days later, Trump was inaugurated. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, said this past week that he supported the A-29 deal to Nigeria as well as the sale of U.S.-made fighter jets to Bahrain that had been stripped of human rights caveats imposed by the Obama administration. Under Obama, the U.S. said Bahrain failed to make promised political and human rights reforms after its Sunni-ruled government crushed Arab Spring protests five years ago. “We need to deal with human rights issues, but not on weapons sales,” Corker said. The State Department said in a 2016 report that the Nigerian government has taken “few steps to investigate or prosecute officials who committed violations, whether in the security forces or elsewhere in the government, and impunity remained widespread at all levels of government.” Amnesty International has accused Nigeria’s military of war crimes and crimes against humanity in the extrajudicial killings of an estimated 8,000 Boko Haram suspects. President Muhammadu Buhari promised to investigate the alleged abuses after he won office in March 2015, but no soldier has been prosecuted and thousands of people remain in illegal military detention. Nigeria’s military has denied the allegations. The A-29 sale would improve the U.S. relationship with Nigeria, Africa’s largest consumer market of 170 million people, the continent’s biggest economy and its second-largest oil producer. Nigeria also is strategically located on the edge of the Sahel, the largely lawless semi-desert region bridging north and sub-Saharan Africa where experts warn Islamic extremists like the Nigeria-based Boko Haram may expand their reach. The aircraft deal also would satisfy Trump’s priorities to support nations fighting Islamic uprisings, boost U.S. manufacturing and create high-wage jobs at home. The A-29 aircraft, which allow pilots to pinpoint targets at night, are assembled in Jacksonville, Florida. “It’s hard to argue that any country in Africa is more important than Nigeria for the geopolitical and other strategic interests of the U.S.,” said J. Peter Pham, vice president of the Atlantic Council in Washington and head of its Africa Center. Once Congress is officially notified of the sale, lawmakers who want to derail it have 30 days to pass veto-proof legislation. That’s a high hurdle given Corker’s support. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., chairman of the Armed Services Committee, also said he backs the sale. “We’ve really got to try to do what we can to contain them,” McCain said of Boko Haram. In Trump’s first phone call with Buhari in February, he “assured the Nigerian president of U.S. readiness to cut a new deal in helping Nigeria in terms of military weapons to combat terrorism,” according to Buhari’s office. A Feb. 15 White House statement that provided a summary of the call said “President Trump expressed support for the sale of aircraft from the United States to support Nigeria’s fight against Boko Haram.” Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, said in mid-February he was “leery” of the sale because of the Nigerian military’s impunity. Cardin said this week he’s not trying to block the deal. “Ultimately we hope that the sale goes forward,” he said. “But there is progress that needs to be made in protecting the civilian population.” Faul reported from Johannesburg, South Africa. Associated Press writer Josh Lederman contributed to this report. via AP

Syria Airstrikes: Russian President Putin Refuses To Meet US Sec Of State

The Kremlin said on Monday, April 10, 2017 that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will not meet President Vladimir Putin when he visits Moscow on Wednesday, a move that could point to tensions over a U.S. missile attack on a Syrian air base last week. John Kerry, Tillerson’s predecessor, often met Putin as well as the Russian foreign minister when he visited Moscow, and Putin granted several audiences to the Texan when he ran oil major Exxon Mobil before taking his current job. Putin even personally awarded Tillerson a top Russian state award — the Order of Friendship — in 2013, and it was widely expected that the former oilman would meet Putin on what is his first trip to Russia as secretary of state. But Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters on Monday that no such meeting was planned, suggesting Tillerson will follow strict diplomatic protocol and only meet his direct counterpart, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. “We have not announced any such meetings and right now there is no meeting with Tillerson in the president’s diary,” Peskov told reporters on a conference call. He did not say why Putin was not planning to receive Tillerson. U.S. President Donald Trump ordered a missile strike on a Syrian military base last week in retaliation for what Washington and its allies say was a poisonous gas attack in which scores of civilians were killed. Moscow says there is no proof that the Syrian military carried out the attack, and called the U.S. missile strike an act of aggression that violates international law. Tillerson’s visit is being seen as an early test of whether Trump’s new administration can use any momentum generated by striking the Syrian base to craft and execute a strategy to end the war there. Even before Trump ordered the strike in retaliation for a nerve gas attack, Tillerson’s visit was certain to be dominated by thorny issues. Those include alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Washington’s accusation that Russia is violating an important arms control treaty, and trying to bridge differences on how to conduct the fight against Islamic State. Syria, ironically, was one of the few areas where analysts believed Moscow and Washington might be able to find common ground. Peskov, Putin’s spokesman, said on Monday that the U.S. strikes had shown Washington’s total unwillingness to cooperate on Syria. Reacting to media reports that Tillerson would use his visit to press Moscow to back away from supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Russia’s biggest Middle East ally, Peskov signaled that was a non-starter. “Returning to pseudo-attempts to resolve the crisis by repeating mantras that Assad must step down cannot help sort things out.” via Reuters

Following Court Victory, Patience Jonathan Storms Skye Bank, Makes Withdrawal

Patience Jonathan, wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, on Monday, April 10, 2017 withdrew money from her Skye Bank account which had been unfrozen by the courts after Dame Jonathan arrived at the Maitama, Abuja Branch of the bank in the company of some aides, sources told TheCable. The source did not say the exact amount that she took out of her account. Jonathan’s visit to the bank is coming a few days after a federal high court in Lagos ordered the de-freezing of her account containing $5.8m. The order of the court was sequel to an application argued by Adedayo Adedipe, counsel to the former first lady. Adedipe had urged the court to unfreeze the account on the grounds that Jonathan was not a party in the suit leading to the order made by the court. Adedipe while citing judicial authorities contended that the order was an abuse of court process as the court had no jurisdiction to make an order against a party that is not a party in a suit filed before the court. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, which initiated the suit leading to the order made by the court freezing the account did not file any response to the application filed to discharge the order. Mojisola Olatoregun, the judge, upheld the submission of Adedipe and then discharged the order freezing the account. Sometime last year, based on an application filed before the court by the EFCC, the court had ordered that the account be frozen on the grounds that it contained suspected proceeds of crime.

Jehovah’s Witnesses: Russia’s Case Falls Flat At Supreme Court

Russia’s Ministry of Justice on Friday, April 7, 2017 failed to provide convincing evidence to support the government’s demand to declare Jehovah’s Witnesses extremists and outlaw their activities in the country. It was the third day of the hearing before the Russian Supreme Court. “The judge directed multiple questions toward the ministry of Justice, asking them to produce evidence regarding their accusations that Jehovah’s Witnesses are extremists and distribute extremist literature. “The ministry of justice was unable to do so,” says a report on jw.org, the official website of Jehovah’s Witnesses. The judge fired the questions after “the court heard the testimony of four of Jehovah’s Witnesses, who presented key arguments against the ministry of justice’s claim to liquidate the Administrative Center of Jehovah’s Witnesses and ban their activities,” according to the report. It says that Vasiliy Kalin, a member of the presiding committee for the Administrative Center of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Russia, stated while addressing the Court: “I want to remind the Ministry of Justice that your request to ban Jehovah’s Witnesses would hurt the very people who wish you a peaceful, happy life.” The report says that the Court has declared a recess until Wednesday, April 12, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. A Moscow court banned the group from operating in the capital in 2004. The ruling was declared unlawful by the European Court of Human Rights in 2010, who granted compensation of 70,000 euro ($80,000). The Jehovah’s Witnesses are a Christian religious group with roughly 8.2 million members worldwide. Their faith differs notably from mainstream Christianity in several ways, with many members believing that armageddon is imminent. Hattip to News Express, Moscow Times

Nigerian Doctor Arrested In US On Charges Of Sexually Assaulting A Patient (PICTURED)

A disciplinary panel of the Texas Medical Board temporarily suspended the Texas medical license of an orthopedic surgeon, Nigerian Donald Okechukwu Ozumba, M.D., on Friday, April 7, 2017 “after determining his continuation in the practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare.” 44-year-old Dr. Ozumba, born in Nigeria, faces two charges of sexual assault. McKinney police arrested him on Mar. 31 and booked him at the Collin County Jail, where his bail was set at $50,000. He was released on Sunday. According to the arrest warrant, the first victim contacted police in August of last year, alleging that the assault happened while she was at an appointment to have her IT band examined. That woman told investigators that Ozumba touched her genitals during the exam. Police interviewed another victim last week who accused Ozumba of sexually assaulting her while she was a patient in 2015. She told police that the doctor exposed half of her genitals to check for internal fluid and told her he needed to rub in the medication he had injected under her left hip. Ozumba massaged the area, then penetrated the woman’s genitals with his fingers and massaged her inside, according to the arrest warrant affidavit. The woman’s husband was sitting behind the doctor but couldn’t see what was happening, police said. The woman told police that she contacted another doctor after the visit and asked whether what Ozumba had done was normal procedure. The second doctor informed her that Ozumba was “absolutely not supposed to penetrate her vagina,” according to the arrest warrant affidavit. Shortly after the visit, Ozumba asked the woman to download a messaging app and sent her a text asking what her favorite part of the procedure was, according to the affidavit. The woman told police that she texted him back with a message that said “Not receiving a script,” then deleted the app. Read more at Dallas News.
