Eboue provoked Nigerians

Eboue provoked many Nigerians on twitter

Galatasary and Cote d'Ivoire defender, Emmanuel Eboue, has provoked Nigerians that his country will eat the Super Eagles of Nigeria like 'super fried chicken' when they meet on Sunday in the ongoing AFCON.

The former Arsenal player maintained that Nigeria were no match to his side. His first tweet read: "Congrat to Nigeria. Don't celebrate too much cuz we are coming for you. We are going to eat you like fufu".

Minutes later, the Ivorian defender tweeted again: "Sorry guys, point of correction. We are going to eat Nigeria like #SuperFriedChickens."

From then on, it has been an unending tweet tirade on not just the Eagles as a team but Nigeria in its entirety, a situation that has seen some twitter users including Piers Morgan arguing that Eboue has gone too far.

Eboue, watch yourself! Eagles kill

Shell oil spill damages

Nigerian women at the Shell Oil spill site

Shell faces damages over Nigeria oil spill. A court in Hague, Netherlands ordered Shell to pay compensation to one Nigerian farmer for damages caused by oil pollution Wednesday.

This verdict is great news for the Nigerians in Ikot Ada Udo who has suffered alot from environmental pollution from the oil spill.

The amount of the fine will be determined in a separate case. However, in four other similar cases, Shell was acquitted from paying for damages caused by oil spills in Nigeria.

In the case about oil spills near the village of Ikot Ada Udo, the court ruled that: "Shell Nigeria, pursuant to applicable Nigerian law, has violated a duty of care and shall be held liable for tort of negligence."

However, the court established that the four other oil spills were not caused by defective maintenance by Shell, but by sabotage from third parties. "Pursuant to applicable Nigerian law, an oil company is not liable for oil spills caused by sabotage in principle," read a court statement.

Nigeria: N496m spent on Police colleges

Nigeria's police college Ikeja to receive N496m
Nigeria's Police College, Ikeja

Nigeria's Ministry of Finance, showed that Police colleges got N496m in 2012.

Budget Office of the Federation, Ministry of Finance, showed that N296.75m was budgeted for the upgrade of facilities including the college at Ikeja and another N200m  for the rehabilitation of Police Intelligence College, Challawa, Kano State.

Last week, President Goodluck Jonathan had visited the Police College, Ikeja, after Channels Television exposed the poor state of  the police academy.

As a result, an 11-man committee has been set up to probe the rot in police colleges nationwide.

The Executive Chairman of the Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders, Debo Adeniran, told Sunday Punch that “Even if they had budgeted N1bn for the upgrade of facilities at the police colleges, it will still not amount to anything because those in charge will divert the money into their pockets. There is simply no accountability in the system.

“For several years, different amounts of money have been budgeted for projects at those colleges but nobody has monitored implementation. The National Assembly and the minister of police affairs have not performed their oversight functions.”

It is now illegal to unlock phones

Starting Today, It's Illegal to Unlock Your Cellphone

It is illegal to unlock a phone from a US carrier unless you have that carrier's permission to do so.

The ban started today after U.S. Copyright Office and Library of Congress under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) place a ban allowing phone unlocking.

The law reads in Section 1201 of the DMCA: “Upon the recommendation of the Register of Copyrights, the Librarian of Congress may designate certain classes of works as exempt from the prohibition against circumvention of technological measures that control access to copyrighted works.”

"Violations of the DMCA [unlocking your phone] may be punished with a civil suit or, if the violation was done for commercial gain, it may be prosecuted as a criminal act," Brad Shear, a Washington, D.C.-area attorney added.

If your phone has already been unlocked, you are grandfathered in and won't face any legal issues.

In an exclusive interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan  discuss Nigeria's battle to stop the spread of Boko Haram.

President Jonathan admitted Nigeria has been making progress to contain “the Boko Haram saga.”

“If you look at the last six months, incidents of killing started dropping,” President Jonathan contended, insisting that the government is gaining control.

''Same sex marriage is evil.'' Pastor Adeboye

Pastor Adeboye on Same sex marriage

The general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Nigeria, Pastor E.A Adeboye believes allowing gay couples to marry will wipe out humanity.

Adeboye made the comments during a university religious event on Monday that was held at Obafemi Awolowo University.

The pastor said: “Same-sex marriage is an anathema to the will of God for human beings to be fruitful, replenish and multiply on earth. Anything contrary to that is evil.

“How can a man who marries a fellow man produce a child and how can a woman who marries a fellow woman produce a child?

“If this evil is allowed to stay, there will not be newborns again in the world. As the older generation dies, will there be a new generations to succeed it? Even plants and animals have new generations to succeed them.”

The pastor called on people practicing homosexuality to repent and ‘flee from the wrath of God.

Nnaji unveils the first private power plant in Nigeria

Geometric Power owned by former Minister of Power, Dr Barth Nnaji will commence the operation of Nigeria's first privately owned power plant in Aba in March.

The Managing Director of the company, Agartha Nnaji disclosed this to members of the National Good Governance Tour team when she received them at the project site on Friday.

Nnaji said the plant, when commissioned, will provide uninterrupted power supply to Aba and its environs.

“We have completed all the major works on this project; we have laid the pipeline for the supply of gas to the plant.

“The distribution facility is also near completion, so by March, the first turbine will be fired and the remaining two will follow shortly,’’ she said.

The 140 megawatt gas driven plant has three turbines already installed, while an overhead line, a 27 kilometre gas pipeline and a sub-station have since been completed.

Nnaji said the company has entered into an agreement with Shell Petroleum Company for the supply of gas and it plans to absorb and train some former staff of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) to work at the plant.

Nigerians unite against police brutality in Cape Town

Nigerians gathered to protest against alleged police brutality in Cape Town

Nigerian born Obinna Ugboaja's death has sparked the ire of the Nigerian community who marched to Cape Town's  parliament on Friday demanding an end to police brutality against Nigerians.
The Nigerian Union in the Cape Town business district argued that Nigerians were being targeted for brutal treatment by the police. They said in most cases brutality was swept under the carpet because of the false assumption that all Nigerians were criminals.
According to the Independent Complaints Directorate 2011/2012 annual report, '932 people died in police custody or as a result of police action.'
"I really don't know exactly what happened. They didn't tell me anything. They took me to the mortuary where I found my husband dead. His mouth and neck were full of blood and he had marks on his neck, like he had been held hard.
"They said he had overdosed on cocaine. He didn't even smoke cigarettes."
Kanyi Dyantyi said about his 32 year old fiance Ugboaja - who was a computer technician and had been living in South Africa for seven years.

Oprah scores big from exclusive interview with Lance Armstrong

Oprah scores big from exclusive interview with Lance Armstrong

Oprah Winfrey, 58, dominated as the queen US daytime television from 1986 through 2011.

Since the last episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, and the numerical eye catchy 1-11-11 launch of OWN, it's been an uphill battle for the pop culture icon with less than stellar ratings.

Whereas the final episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show pulled in a staggering 16.4 million viewers, with an average of 6 million viewers a day. OWN backed by cable powerhouse Discovery Channel has attracted fewer than 300000 viewers.

OWN is losing millions according to a newly released report from Business Week magazine. According to the publication, OWN and its partner, Discovery, have both taken huge hits.

Discovery, who’s in partnership with the media mogul, helped launch the network and has been underwriting its costs with nearly $600 million invested in it since 2008. OWN’s estimated to have lost $330,000.

Her interview with Lance Armstrong, aired on both OWN and the website, could be a turning point.

"This is a huge 'get' for Oprah" given how OWN is not yet part of the [media] mainstream," celebrity biographer and author of Oprah: A Biography Kitty Kelley said.

"This is enormous for OWN in that it's probably going to be first time ever that many people have tuned into the channel," said Larry Gerbrandt of Media Valuation Partners.

For the second time in 2013, Winfrey has the interview everyone wants. Last time it was David Letterman. This time it’s Lance Armstrong.

That’s millions of viewers clicking through. Last March, the network scored its biggest audience to date for Winfrey’s interview with Whitney Houston’s daughter following the singer’s death.
The Armstrong broadcast could well exceed the 3.5 million viewers for that show.

You might wonder where these fake girlfriends are coming from. The site invites women to offer their profiles up for virtual grabbing, with the incentive of a 50 percent profit share.

Armstrong: I doped on all seven Tour de France wins

Armstrong tells all to TV's Oprah Winfrey

After years of denial, 41 year old Lance Armstrong has backpedaled in a confessional interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired Thursday night.

He admitted unequivocally to using performance enhancing drugs in his seven Tour de France wins.

Did he use the blood enhancing hormone EPO? Steroids? and other blood doping?

Armstrong answered "yes" on all counts.

The former cycling great, who has been stripped of his Tour de France titles and an Olympic bronze medal, blamed no one but himself for his doping decisions.

He said:  “I view this situation as one big lie, which I repeated a lot of times. I know the truth — the truth wasn’t out there, the truth wasn’t what I said.

“The story was so perfect for so long. It was this mythic perfect story and that wasn’t true.

“I’m a flawed character, as you well know. All the fault, all the blame here is on me.

“Now the story is so bad and so toxic — and a lot of it is true.”

“I didn’t invent the culture, but I didn’t try and stop the culture.

“That’s my mistake and that was wrong and that is what I have to be sorry for. And the sport is now paying the price. I am sorry for that.” He added.

The question is why now? There must be something at stake.

''Somebody as arrogant as Lance Armstrong doesn't just give up because he feels guilty or he's too tired to fight. And if he's telling all now, after all this lying, you have to wonder what he's NOT telling? says Donna Anderson

It's not only the lying and cheating that's despicable, but also the fact that he threatened fellow team mates and anyone who dared to expose him.

    7 year old brought a loaded .22 caliber handgun to elementary school

    A 7 year old elementary school student is under investigation after a school official found a loaded gun in his backpack Thursday morning.
