BENIN CITY- GOVERNOR Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state yesterday declared that the President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration has killed many Edo indigenes due to the alleged refusal by the President to give ecological funds to areas devastated by erosion in the state and many other APC states.

Oshiomhole also lampooned the Federal government austerity measures due to fallen prices oil, querying that “ what did they do with our money when oil was N108 per barrel. They said we should tighten our belt but they gave us no belt, that is anti people”.

Egyptian Court Dismisses Charges Against Former President Mubarak Accused of Corruption & Killing Hundreds

Merkel Meets With Egyptian President Mubarak

An Egyptian court on Saturday in Cairo dismissed charges against former President Hosni Mubarak for his involvement in the deaths of protesters during a 2011 uprising that ended his rule.
The Cairo Criminal Court also acquitted Mubarak’s Interior Minister, Habib al-Adly, and ex-security chiefs of the same charges.
The court cleared Mubarak, his sons, Alaa and Gamal, and a fugitive business tycoon of charges in a separate corruption case.
Presiding judge, Mahmoud al-Rasheedi, referring to Mubarak, said that “only history and God should be called on to issue judgment on someone who served as vice president and then president of Egypt for over 30 years.’’
Mubarak was already serving three years in prison in a separate corruption case.
