We Are More Determined To Fight Boko Haram Than Ever - Nigerian Military

 
The Defence Headquarters yesterday released a statement assuring Nigerians that they are going to do everything to defend Nigeria against Boko Haram. In the last few weeks, Boko Haram has been terrorizing Borno State with them now in control of Gwosa and also fighting to take over Bama which has left thousands of residents of the communities homeless. More disturbing is their threat to take over Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State which has made international communities tell the Nigerian Government to sit up tight in fighting the insurgents.
“While welcoming all the concerns shown by Nigerians and a section of the international community following the increased menace and activities of terrorists, it is necessary to reassure all that the Nigerian Armed Forces is more than ever determined and committed to the defence of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Nigeria, regardless of any odd,” the statement said.

MESSY DIVORCE: Chris Oyakhilome Allegedly Sacks Pastor


 

The divorce saga between Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and wife, Rev Anita is getting messier as the latest reports is that one of the Pastors in the church has been sacked over the bitter feud.
According to The Sun’s findings,  Pastor  Chris Oyakhilome has allegedly sacked one of his top pastors, Reverend Grace for allegedly raising a prayer team to pray for the restoration of peace in the Oyakhilomes’ marriage.
Rev. Grace is said to have worked with Rev Anita Oyakhilome at the London branch of the church.
Meanwhile one of the ministers, who spoke with The Sun said: “We suspected this issue is going to go public some day since the day Pastor Chris sacked Rev Grace for meddling in his family affairs by openly calling for prayers among some members in London when Rev Anita stopped coming to the church she was shepherding while all efforts to get her failed. Some us believe our colleague in London did the right thing by seeking spiritual help for the family but I think Pastor Chris misread her intention and had to travel to London when he heard of the move to sack her and contain the spread of rumour among members in London.”
Apart from the sack of the London pastor, another issue connected to the divorce, which has also been

Ryan Cummings: Similarities between Boko Haram and ISIS

Q1BfUUyo_400x400

In recent weeks, I have fielded a number of questions regarding Boko Haram’s declaration of a caliphate and whether the sect’s actions have been inspired by that of the Islamic State in the Levant. I thought I would great to pose some of the more commonly asked questions on my blog and also list the responses I have generally, and perhaps haphazardly so, provided to these quandaries.  I am no expert in Islamic theology, nor do I profess to have more than a very basic understanding of developments within the Levant with specific relation to the Islamic State. That said, I am hoping that my views could potentially answer some nagging questions or perhaps illicit some more informed responses. Here goes nothing….

Is Boko Haram copying or being motivated by the Islamic State (IS) to create a caliphate in north eastern Nigeria?
Boko Haram’s primary goal has always been the creation of an Islamic State (IS) in north eastern Nigeria which the group’s founder, Mohammed Yusuf, believed would be the panacea to the Nigeria’s socio-economics ills which have arisen due to Nigeria’s secular government. In summary, Boko Haram’s ambition to create an Islamic state governed under Sharia Law predates the formation of IS.

Given the declaration of a caliphate, is Boko Haram seeking to join up with IS?
In terms of joining IS, it currently seems unlikely that Boko Haram will do so. While Boko Haram leader

Ebola: Cameroon Quarantines 60 Nigerians

They were put under observation for 21 days, the incubation period for the virus but had to be released after spending 2 weeks, last Thursday, September 4, at the direction of the Minister of Public Health, André Mama Fouda after testing negative to the virus hemorrhagic fever.

CIN also reports that the press has denounced the course of the weeks, the treatment of these people in the camps where they were placed. Inadequately housed and ill-fed, they would have had a holiday from hell to Cameroon-Nigerian border.

As part of its prevention and response plan, the Cameroonian authorities had prohibited any movement of

Why P-Square Do Not Live with their Wives

#DivorceDrama: My wife is insatiable in bed, Man laments in court



A man in India has filed for divorce on the grounds of too much sex.
According to the Times of India, the man dragged his wife to court over her “excessive and insatiable desire for sex.”
The man who was apparently fed up with his wife’s antics had initially taken her to court in January claiming that his wife was “aggressive, stubborn and autocratic” and that she’d be harassing him for sex since they married in April 2012.
He also accused his wife of persuading him to take medication to boost his performance in bed and threatened to date other men if he can’t satisfy her.
“Due to respondent’s (wife’s) non-appearance before the court, the petitioner’s (husband’s) evidence remains unchallenged on record. Hence this court has no option but to accept his evidence as it is and he is entitled to a decree of divorce as prayed,” Principal Judge of family court, Laxmi Rao ruled in a recent order.

I Might Consider Dating A Nigerian Now That I Am Here - May7Ven

 
Segun Odegbami’s daughter, May7Ven is considering dating a Nigerian now that she is back into the country. The singer said, though her father has been begging her to relocate since 15years ago, she’s glad she is here now, and he has even advised her to think about dating a Nigerian. She is also one lady that believes very much in marriage. Here is what she told Punch about her love life and relocating back to Nigeria;
Are you in a relationship?
I am not married so I am single. I don’t have a lover right now. I was seeing somebody but my move to Nigeria affected the relationship a lot. I am an old school lady who believes in marriage so if that is not in the picture then it is a no go area for me. I don’t see the point in getting into a relationship with somebody if there is no intention to potentially get married to the person.

Was it a situation whereby you had to choose between moving to Nigeria to pursue your career and your love life?
No, things just became difficult because of the long distance but I still love him a lot.

Chris Brown has granted his first Post-jail interview.He opened up to Billboard on his experience in jail and why Rihanna will always remain a part of his story.

On the the daily routine in Jail..
A guard wakes you up; you eat. You stay in your cell most of the time, basically 24 hours a day. Maybe on Mondays you go to the roof inside of a cage and have a phone call. It’s isolation. You have time to focus on what matters, on what to do and what not to do.My maturity level has risen as far as my realizing what’s important. Realizing that I’m human like everyone else. At the end of the day, it’s just a humbling experience. You’re more appreciative of everything else that’s on the outside. A burger tastes 1,000 times better when you’re out (Laughs.) I’m just more appreciative of the things I’m blessed with and the things I do: music,

Lagos Worshipers resist the return of Adulterous Methodist Church priest

 
Worshippers at the Ereko circuit, Di­ocese of Lagos, Methodist Church of Nigeria, are protesting against the reinstatement of one of their priests, Rev Abayomi Okesanya who was sent on suspen­sion for alleged adultery. They have vowed to re­sist the return of the clergy to their midst.

His sin: His wife, Yemisi Okesanya accused him of impregnating another woman. Some members of the congregation, who spoke with Saturday Sun, claimed that they were shocked by his sudden return even when he is living with another woman apart from his legally married wife.

The church, which is located at No 18 Ereko Street, Idumota, Lagos, has Rev Moses Adebayo Si­yanbola as the presbyter and minister in-charge of the circuit.

Aggrieved and determined to draw the attention of the church to what they described as an attempt by some leaders of the church to disregard biblical and age-long doctrine, members of the church told Satur­day Sun that the cause of the problem can be traced to the couple’s childless state.

I intend to look for another job. If it’s the will of God for me to work, I will get another job. Aside from that, I made Justina a promise. I spoke with her the night she passed on but I had to go there to confirm the next morning. I had to go inside there after wearing the kits. I was led in and I held her hands, I just wanted to know if she was truly dead. At that time, she was already dead. I told her that I would make sure I pursued those things she could not achieve that I knew about, in my own little way and with the help of individuals. I would make sure she fulfils the dreams. Before her death, she had a vision of a project that I don’t want to share here. If that is what will keep me busy for the rest of my life, I don’t mind to keep her memory alive. I wrote the plan and we were just waiting to complete our marriage plans before proceeding with

SSS probes Sheriff over alleged Boko Haram sponsorship

 

The Department of State Security, said it had summoned a former governor of Borno State, Modu Sheriff, for interrogation over his alleged sponsorship of Boko Haram.
The service stated that it had quizzed Sheriff twice in connection with his alleged involvement with the sect, adding that investigation was ongoing into various aspects of the allegations by the Australian negotiator, Stephen Davies, who named the former governor as one of the financial backers of the sect.
The Deputy Director, DSS Public Relations, Marilyn Ogar, said this on Friday in Abuja while parading the co-mastermind of the Nyanya blast, Sadiq Ogwuche, along with other suspects, Ahmed Abubakar, Muhammad Ishaq, Yau Saidu, Anas Isah and Adamu Yusuf.
Ogar dismissed allegations by Davies that a former Chief of Army Staff, Azubuike Ihejirika, was one of the sponsors of the sect.
She stated that it was “uncharitable for Nigerians to reward someone who laid down his life, to associate him with the sponsorship of the sect.”
Ogar said, “Sheriff has been invited twice and he has been invited again (over his alleged sponsorship of Boko Haram). Investigation is ongoing to review every aspect of Davies allegations.”
The DSS spokeswoman said contrary to claims by Davies that the CBN official who handled the funding of
