The truth will come out soon I believe. Just a day after he claimed that former Borno state Gov, Alimodu Sheriff and an unnamed retired army chief are sponsors of Boko Haram, he's now claiming that the insurgent group if funded through the CBN. In an interview with TheCable, Dennis Stephen claimed a senior official of the CBN handles the financial transactions of the sect group.

This week, we are going to put the spotlight on fake Abuja big boys, FABBs too – they are all FABBs. These guys are always well-dressed with flashy cars. Some of them are even from rich homes. You see them looking like a bag of money, meanwhile nothing in their bank accounts. There is nothing wrong with looking good and not having money to back it up. There is only something wrong when you are doing it for packaging.

A keeper: (n) someone who you’d likely spend the rest of your life with if you find him/her.My dear sister, sorry to say this, but that man you are clutching on to like the latest LV purse, is not a keeper.
I know it hurts- these truths; tearing at your insides like a savage beast. Would you rather I keep quiet and watch you mourn inconsolably a few months down the line over unrequited love and self-worth smashed to tiny bits; bemoaning time that cannot be recovered, with tear marks like a child forced to swallow pap without sugar every morning? Would you rather I turn the other way and pretend I didn’t see that gaffe- the one you tried to hide just so we can all pretend that your man is a good one?

In a recent interview with Arise News TV, Australian hostage negotiator, Stephen Davis, who was hired by the Nigerian government some months back to help negotiate with Boko Haram members to facilitate the release of abducted Chibok girls, mentioned the name of former Borno state Governor, Alimodu Sheriff as a sponsor of the terrorist group, Boko Haram. He also said that an unnamed past Chief of Army Staff who was sacked by Pres. Jonathan was also a sponsor of the group.

Minister of Health Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu said today that Nigeria has been able to reduce the number of Ebola cases to just one.
At a press briefing held today August 26th in Abuja, Prof. Onyebuchi said only one patient out of the 13 confirmed cases in Nigeria is still at the Isolation center. He said five of those infected died while seven have successfully recovered and have been discharged. He also said two of the nurses who attended to Patrick Sawyer at the First Consultant hospital were discharged yesterday.

Patrick Sawyer‘s mother, Georgia Nah said she is heartbroken, after losing two of her children to the Ebola virus in the space of less than three weeks. The 40-year-old Liberian became the first American citizen to be killed by the virus when he died in Lagos, Nigeria on July 25.
Just a few weeks earlier he had been at the bedside of his sister, Princess Nyuennyue, 27, who was hospitalised in Liberia where she lived with her fiancée and son. Ms Nyuennyue died on July 7, a day after her brother visited her.

Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh, the Nigerian physician who died in Lagos this week, was mistakenly exposed to the Ebola Virus Disease at the First Consultants Medical Center in Ikoyi where she worked and attended to Patrick Sawyer, the patient who brought EVD into the country. But she was heroically instrumental to preventing a massive outbreak in the country, an effort she paid for with her life last Tuesday.
A statement she co-authored with Dr. B.N. Ohiaeri before her death explained how Mr. Sawyer was first diagnosed with malaria upon his arrival on the night of July 20. Here is the text of the statement by First Consultants Medical Center Ltd.
The Boko Haram insurgency is far beyond the problem of the North East people as families in other parts of the country are now equally battling the bitter taste of the sect’s rampaging activities. One of such is Alhaji Mustapha Oyeyinka who is now cursing the day he decided to relocate to Nigeria from Europe where his family has been doing fine.
Today, he has not only lost his sight to the insurgents but lives with an agonizing memory of seeing his wife raped along with other women almost on a daily basis for three months in one of the camps of the deadly sect in Kaduna State. Enraged and bitter, the frustrated 50-year- old Mustapha told DailySun his story, here are excerpts:
Excited about his return to Nigeria, Alhaji Mustapha Oyeyinka sometime in February 2011 decided to take a trip to Kaduna with his wife, Rachael to attend a wedding ceremony. Unknown to him, that trip will alter his destiny as they ended up in a Boko Haram camp where they spent three horrifying months.

Funny video but straight to the point. Serial job hunter, Frank Donga is obviously concerned about the threatening Ebola virus; he gives advice to a youth on how to detect the symptoms of Ebola and how to keep oneself safe. Be Informed.
I just can't hold back my emotions with this one, really! The Liberian Minister who approved late Patrick Sawyer's trip to Nigeria has angrily reacted after he was criticized for letting Sawyer, a staff of the Liberian government, leave Liberia for Nigeria despite Liberian health officials placing him on Ebola danger list.
Deputy Finance Minister Sebastian Muah Omar told a Facebook user who asked him why he made such a decision that he does not owe him any explanation. He also said he wasn't late Sawyer's doctor to stop him from traveling.
One of the minister's followers queried him, saying,
“As his superior, if a man tells you his sister died from Ebola and he could have beenexposed do you not think it is your duty to ask the hard questions or maybe you could have reported this to the health officials?...

A man believed to be training female bombers has been arrested in Kano yesterday. Ibrahim Ibrahim was arrested with 16 girls who security agents said were being trained as would-be bombers. The security agents carried out the raid following a tip off.
JTF spokesman Capt. Ikechukwu Eze confirmed the arrest, and said investigation was ongoing.
A security source also told The Nation anonymously that when interrogated, the suspect disclosed that he brought the female bombers from the Sambisa forest in Borno State.
The 1970's inspired video was shot in Ogun State, Nigeria with a vintage Mercedes Benz, decade appropriate costumes and other props. The video shows the journey of a newlywed couple; played by Timi Dakolo and his wife, through good and difficult times. Lovely video.
