Paris confirms death of African Al-Qaeda leader Abou Zeid



PARIS – France confirmed Saturday that one of the key leaders of Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), Abdelhamid Abou Zeid, had been killed in fighting with French-led forces in northern Mali.
Considered one of the most radical leaders in Al-Qaeda’s north African branch, the 46-year-old is credited with having significantly expanded the terrorist group’s field of operation to Tunisia and Niger, and for kidnapping activities across the region.
French President Francois Hollande “confirms Abdelhamid Abou Zeid’s death with certainty during fighting led by the French army in the Ifoghas mountains in northern Mali in late February”, the Elysee palace said in a statement.
“The elimination of one of the main leaders of AQIM marks an important stage in the fight against terrorism in the Sahel.”
Abou Zeid’s death was first announced on March 1 by Chadian President Idriss Deby Itno, whose army is fighting alongside French troops to secure the Ifoghas.
Two days later, the Chadian army also announced it had killed Algerian Islamist militant Mokhtar

Chinua Achebe In The Eyes of The World: Bearing Witness, With Words by The New York Times


“If you don’t like someone’s story,” Chinua Achebe told The Paris Review in 1994, “write your own.”
 
In his first novel and masterpiece, “Things Fall Apart” (1958), Mr. Achebe, who died on Thursday at 82, did exactly that. In calm and exacting prose, he examined a tribal society fracturing under the abuses of colonialism. The novel has been assigned to generations of American high school and college students — my college dispatched a copy to me before my freshman year.
In many respects “Things Fall Apart” is the “To Kill A Mockingbird” of African literature: accessible but stinging, its layers peeling over the course of multiple readings.
“Things Fall Apart,” its title taken from William Butler Yeats’s poem “The Second Coming,” has sold more than 10 million copies and been translated into some 45 languages. Time magazine placed it on its list of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005.
The novel tells the story of Okonkwo, a stoic clan leader and former wrestling hero who returns to his village after seven years in exile. (He’d been sent away after his role in an accidental death.) The changes that Christian missionaries and other white men have brought are intolerable to him. “Things Fall Apart” rolls

World Cup 2014 Qualifier: Nigeria 1-1 Kenya, Oduamadi steals late equaliser for Nigeria in Calabar



Nigeria, the Champions of Africa, kicked off their post-Afcon campaign in Calabar with a disappointing World Cup qualifying draw at home to Kenya. Despite early confidence on the pitch and in the stands, the home side failed to spark—they were left stunned as Francis Kahata gave the Harambee Stars the lead with a sweetly struck freekick towards the end of the first half. To the immense relief of the home supporters, Nnamdi Oduamadi sealed a late, stoppage time equaliser, getting Naija out of jail, and breaking Kenyan hearts.
Stephen Keshi’s forewarning that the occasion for partying was done, and his insistence that the side were totally focused on seizing a place in Brazil for the 2014 World Cup were bore out early on, as Naija looked urgent and progressive. This was tempered this with the composure and maturity that is increasingly becoming a trademark of this young side.

Obafemi Martins will have been acutely aware of the significance of his latest opportunity with the national side. The experienced frontman, realising that future opportunities may well be limited, was keen to impress. He had little to work with in the early stages, a number of long balls forward from the full-backs drifting

Francis Meets Benedict: First Recorded Meeting Of Two Popes In History


In yet another first, Pope Francis had a lunch meeting with his predecessor, Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI. There is no public record of two popes ever meeting in history. At least, it is the first time in 600 years that Saturday afternoon’s meeting has taken place.

Pope Francis was flown by helicopter to Castel Gandolfo, the residence of the Pope Emeritus for a private lunch.
Pope Francis succeeded Benedict on March 13 after the latter resigned due to failing health.
They have spoken by telephone since Francis was elected but this is their first face-to-face meeting.
The only other time that a meeting like Saturdays could have happened was in 1294, after the resignation of Celestine V after 5 months as pope. But his successor, Boniface VIII who was elected days later, imprisoned Celestine who eventually died within a year. There is no record of their meeting in person during

See Photo of a Man who has Male and Female S*x Organs


Have you ever seen someone with both male and female organs? Well if you have not, above is a pictured of one.
The man in his late 40s, who refused to utter a word despite the hysteria his presence generated, was almost lynched by a mob but for the intervention of police and other security agents.
The man, whose name could not be ascertained as of press time, was discovered to possess a full grown pair of breasts, which dangled from his chest, just like those of a young woman.
An angry mob was going for the kill when security operatives were quickly drafted to the scene. Their (mob) grouse was that it was strange and unacceptable that a man would possess dual sex organs.
Young men near a filling station at the Sapele-Warri/New Road junction tore the man’s clothes, and revealed

Only ‘One Thing’ Can Split Us – Psquare


Nigeria’s pop duo, P-Square of Peter and Paul Okoye were in Malawi last weekend, where they thrilled their fans with their electrifying performance and moving dance steps
Showtime Celebrity cornered Peter Okoye who provides insight into what could make him break up with his twin brother. He also talks about the making of their latest album, Alingo and their new plans to conquer the southeast African countries with their kind of music.

You are always on the road, how many days do you guys have to yourselves?
We have been trying as much as possible to create time for ourselves. But most times, we don’t get it. We need more time to rest because performing for 2-3 hours on stage is not usually an easy task. Despite the fact that we have been travelling over the world, we took a break in January, and right now, we have resumed business again.

Sometime ago, it was rumoured that your latest album, ‘Alingo’ was banned which was later refuted. How did you receive the news?
We heard about the ban. But when they ban a particular song, they are indeed helping to promote that song.

Silverbird Cinema Bans ‘Boko Haram’ Movie


Silverbird Cinemas has banned and has refused to show one of Ghana/Nigeria movies titled ‘Boko Haram’ which was produced by movie director Pascal Amanfo.

In a chat with the producer/director of the movie, Pascal Amanfo, he revealed that, he sent the movie to Silverbird-Nigeria for it to be reviewed, but it was rejected. Whiles in Nigeria, he was also told that Silverbird-Ghana has also rejected the movie, because Silverbird-Nigeria instructed them not to show it.

"We don't own a private jet yet, but hope to buy one in the future' - P-Square


When asked by Vanguard if the rumour that they bought a private jet was true, P-Square replied:

"There was nothing like that. I guess because it was included in our list that whenever we are going for a specific show,  the organsiers must provide us with a private jet. We had a deal with a private jet company which always hire their private jet to us whenever we are in need of it. It’s like, we have a private jet at our disposal. I remember, I once tweeted that a private jet has been included in our list.  That was how people started speculating that Psquare has bought a private jet. But we always  travel with the jet all the time.
Do they plan to buy a private jet someday?
To be honest with you, the way things are going, we are planning to buy one. And it’s not

Saudi Prince jailed in the UK for killing his servant flown home to serve the rest of his sentence

 
The grandson of Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah, Prince Saud Bin Abdulaziz, (pictured left) who was jailed for life in the UK in 2010 for killing his servant was on Monday March 18th flown back to Saudi Arabia to serve the rest of his sentence. But why would the British government do that? They really expect the grandson of the King of Saudi to be locked up forever in Saudi? I hear!

Homosexual Prince Saud murdered his servant, Bandar Abdullah Abdulaziz in a London hotel on 15 February 2010 after the pair returned from a Valentine's Day night out. He subjected the servant to a 'sadistic' campaign of violence and sexual abuse before beating and strangling him to death.

Housewife Dies After Sex With Neighbour


The price for adultery is fatal when one considers what happened recently in Badagry area Lagos State, southwest Nigeria, where a housewife died during sex with her neighbour, who is also married to another woman.
The man, Lawrence Chukwuma, landed in trouble after he had sex with Mrs Lucy Joseph, who died in the process.
The incident happened at 2nd Avenue, Oke-Morosun Magbon area of Badagry.
On the fateful day, the 48-year old Chukwuma from Anambra State, southeast Nigeria, reportedly woke up early and pretended that he was going to pursue his business and later came back when his own wife and Lucy’s husband had gone out.
It was gathered that while Chukwuma and Lucy were having the best of time, she suddenly started breathing heavily and became unconscious. Before Lucy was taken to hospital, she had already died and the doctors merely confirmed her dead.
It was not certain what actually caused her death, but her body has been deposited at the Badagry  General

Annie & 2face's Love Story: How They Met At Age 15, How They Suffered And All


This is probably the best love story ever, after all the ups and downs, the break- ups, cheating and all, they still ended up as ONE!
How They Met
Annie first met 2face Idibia at Even Ezra Music Studio when she was just fifteen and in her words, “I think there was some electricity that second”.
They were friends first but had started dating officially by the time they shot the “African Queen” video in 2004. That was when 2Face announced that they were together during an interview. Mehn, they don tey oh...
I remember my 16th birthday at Alpha Beach, with me and my friends. When we were going home, we all walked to the bus stop with him and his cousin. Plantashun Boiz had just recorded “Knock Me Off” at the time so he wasn’t a star yet.
So we got into the bus, he sat in front with his cousin so when we wanted to pay the conductor, he said, “no, he done pay already” I was feeling like a babe. “Hey! My boyfriend paid everybody’s bus fare.” And that time, bus was like N2.50k or N3 per person for about 14 people. But he told me recently that he didn’t eat

The Sierra Leonean girl who met Gaddafi ‘in hell’


Sierra Leone’s over 50 years of religious harmony is under threat thanks to the bizarre revelations of a young woman.
Sister Linda Ngaoja’s ‘heavenly journey’ a few weeks ago has turned her into the equivalent of a movie star, but at the risk of destabilising a country renowned for its religious tolerance.
The 28-year-old (some say 26) college student claims to have “died” and gone to hell before being taken to heaven.
While in hell, former Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi told her he wanted the mosque he built in Sierra Leone destroyed and replaced with a church.
She also has a message from the late president of neighbouring Guinea, Lansana Conte, who wants all the mosques in his country brought down and replaced with churches.
Sister Linda “died” after a brief illness. She said because of her worldly crimes in her previous life, she suffered a harrowing experience in hell, where she met her parents and a host of other renowned people including a renowned Sierra Leonean lawmaker, and the late US star Whitney Houston, “who are all

Yityish Aynaw: First Black Miss Israel

It's been an astonishing three weeks for Yityish Aynaw, an immigrant orphan from Ethiopia, who became the first black Miss Israel last month, and has now been invited to Thursday's gala dinner with visiting US President Barack Obama.
When Yityish Aynaw arrived in Israel as a 12-year-old, winning beauty contests and dining with presidents was as far from her thoughts as her native Ethiopia is from her adopted land.
Her mother had just died, leaving her an orphan - her father had died years earlier. So her mother's parents, who were among thousands of Ethiopian Jews already living in Israel, arrived in Addis Ababa to fetch Yityish and her older brother.
In their new home, they had to learn Hebrew from scratch.
"It wasn't easy because I couldn't speak the language and I was put into a regular class without any help," Aynaw, now 21, told the BBC World Service.
"It was a new language. It was a new culture. Quite often children even laughed at me," she says, though she

Cyberattacks cripple South Korean banks and media houses


The attacks that knocked South Korean banks and media outlets offline this week appear to be the latest examples of international "cyberwar." But among the many ways that digital warfare differs from conventional combat: There's often no good way of knowing who's behind an attack.
South Korean investigators said Friday they were wrong when they identified a Chinese Internet address as the origin of a cyberattack that paralyzed tens of thousands of computers at six South Korean companies this week. But they still believe the attack originated from somewhere abroad.
Seoul's Korea Communications Commission said that an Internet Protocol address linked to Wednesday's attack actually belonged to a computer at one of the South Korean companies that were hit.
Commission officials said the IP address was used only for the company's internal network and was identical to a public Chinese address.
Investigators said an analysis of malware and servers indicates the attack was likely orchestrated from abroad. They didn't elaborate.
Experts in Seoul suspect Pyongyang of orchestrating the attack. The investigation will likely take weeks.
