Footballer Adam Johnson sentenced to 6 years imprisonment

Ex-Sunderland footballer Adam Johnson has been sentenced to six years in prison for having sexual relations with a 15 year old girl. The jury passed out the judgement on the former England midfielder today, and at 28, his career as a professional footballer is surely over.

Johnson had earlier denied all four of the allegations until the first day of his trial when he pleaded guilty to one count of grooming and one count of kissing the schoolgirl.

Judge Jonathan Rose, upon pronouncing judgement told Johnson: “All of this is entirely your own responsibility and fault."

The judge said the victim had been a Sunderland fan who would wait after matches to take pictures of her “favourite player”, Johnson, who had known her age.

“That was known to you - to put it another way she had only just turned 15 when you began grooming her, because as you were to admit you found her sexually attractive. You continued in your grooming of this girl even after you were engaged in sexual activity with her. You wanted no-one to know that you and she were exchanging messages. You asked her to find a place to meet that was private and secluded so no-one would see you in her company. You made a deliberate decision to engage in sexual activity with this young girl, no doubt in the expectation that you would get away with it. Your future as a professional footballer must be in doubt.”

A man's account of the porous security at Nigerian airports should be a cause for concern

Aminu Muhammad Ofs has expressed deep concern and fear about the porous security at Nigerian Airports which makes it easy for attacks given the upsurge in terrorism around the world. His concern stems from the fact that those in charge of security sometimes don't conduct thorough checks. Read his post below
"As we mourn Brussels, I hope anyone will read this and do something our own Airports security. I drove into an Airport about 20 minutes ago. We were four men in the car and I am obviously the smallest in size.
I have six bags containing 12 laptops in my boot with another bigger bag containing cables and chargers. When we got to the security check point, all the guy asked was, "Do you have anything in the boot. I said No. I actually forgot I had those bags in the boot. He simply said, "Sauka lafiya Rankadade". That was all and we are inside the Airport. I reported to one of the Airport Security guys and he told me, it must because they know me. He said "you may not know him but most of them know you". Then I asked him how many terrorists he know. He didn't answer me and I told him the fact that you know me doesn't mean I am not a terrorist who will take advantage of being known here to wreck havoc. He obviously wasn't on the same page with me but, he is a a senior Airport Security Chief collecting salaries and allowances. I didn't tell the Airport Manager who I am here to see because that one is hot head. That will mean total bad news for the guy but on my way out, I plan to stop and talk to the guy. May God Almighty protect us all"

Tension between Beyonce & Jay Z at family dinner?

When you see them out they look very happy, but then American tabloid like to make their fans think the power couple are only pretending. According to a report by Radar Online, during a recent party, the tension between Beyonce and Jay Z was so thick they couldn't even hide it ...Read below...
"They had a private dinner on Saturday for about ten people consisting of their inner circle, family and business partners,” the insider said. According to the guest, “They could hardly have been more detached!”
“Beyonce and Jay Z barely spoke two words to each other the entire evening. She complained about the food that he had catered, and said that it was not her people that had made the meal,” the source claimed.
“But Jay Z was very dismissive to Beyonce all night long and had disappeared before all of the guests had left,” the insider told Radar.
“Beyonce was left to wrap up the soiree on her own.”

Suspect comments on his own wanted poster asking why he's top of the list, "Wtf? Man y'all doing too much"

This is so hilarious! A suspect wanted by the police in connection with a possible offence trolled them on Facebook asking why he is top of the list. Lol. According to the UK Mirror, Roderick Hill wanted to know why his face was on top of the police's wanted list. 
The Linden Police Department police posted on March 20: "Roderick Hill of Linden and Mobile is wanted for Attempting to Elude, considered armed. Anyone caught helping him will be charged with Hindering Prosecution."
Hill replied in the comment section a day later, saying: "Wtf?? Man y'all doing too much... it's murderers out here and y'all worried bout lil ol' me? Wow...sad," 

Explaining further, he later added: "And it was not a high-speed chase I ran on foot so it's not even a felony"
When someone asked what his supposed offence was, Hill explained:
"I ran from them... I've never been caught or charged with a gun never robbed. So how is it fair to label me armed over a traffic offence."
He further explained, "And it was not a high-speed chase I ran on foot so it's not even a felony..."
A Facebook user pointed out that he should probably turn off his location on his phone.
"Bruh all I can say is to turn your location off on your phone."

Even if I have to leave the Presidency tomorrow, I want Nigerians to remember that I respect them- Buhari

President Buhari today said even if he leaves office tomorrow, he wants Nigerians to remember him as a leader who respected them. Buhari said this while speaking at the National Economic Committee meeting of APC in Abuja today March 24th. Buhari made the remark while speaking on the recent acts of violence during some elections particularly that of Rivers state where 7 people including a corps member was killed ;

“Of course, the leadership of INEC has been changed, but I appeal to the leadership of the military, security agents and INEC that what I want Nigerians to remember me for, even if I have to leave the Presidency tomorrow is that I respect them. I want all Nigerians to believe and hold their PVC as personal entitlement as Nigerians and use it the way the like, and vote for whoever they like at which ever election. If they voluntarily sold it, it is part of their right and so, let them sell it and remain at home and not participate in any election. But let the law enforcement agencies give them the confidence that nobody will come out and stop them from exercising their fundamental right. I think that more Nigerians are killed or killed themselves in Rivers than in any particular state. At this stage of our political development, to remain brutal is shameful and as a government, I promise we will do something by the next general election.”he said

Unlawful incarceration of colleague: Ekiti House drags DSS, FG to court

The House of Assembly, which condemned “strongly the illegal arrest, detention and dehumanization of Honourable Akanni” and demanded unreserved apology, made this disclosure on Wednesday at a press conference held at its chamber in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.

Reading the text of the address to journalists, the chairman of the House Committee on Information, Youths and Sports, Chief Olugboyega Aribisogan, said that the DSS did not contact any stakeholder to intimate them of the release of Akanni, adding that members of the House read the news, like every other Nigerians, online on Tuesday night. “Up till this moment, we have not been told officially by the DSS whether or not Honourable Akanni was formally released from incarceration after spending 18 days without access to his doctors, lawyers and family members.

“However, preliminary information available to us suggests that Honourable Akanni may have been brought to the hospital by men of the DSS and abandoned there because they could no longer hold him in captivity because of his deteriorating health condition.

“Nigerians should be reminded that it took the rumour of Honourable Akanni’s death for the DSS to admit officially that it was holding him after spending 15 days in detention without access to anyone. As we speak, Honourable Akanni is in very critical condition and he has not been able to speak with anyone of us.

“We, therefore, demand an official explanation from the DSS as to why Honourable Akanni was abducted and held incommunicado for 18 days, only for us to be told that he was admitted in a private hospital in Abuja.

Read the statement below...
The Ekiti State House of Assembly says it has instructed its counsel to seek redress and damages over what it calls “the undemocratic, unpatriotic, dictatorial and brutish” incarceration of one of its members, Mr Afolabi Akanni, by the Department of State Services (DSS) for 18 days with neither explanation nor trial in court.
“Furthermore, we demand an explanation from the DSS whether in a democracy, it is part of its mandate to disobey court orders and dump Nigerians in detention for 18 days over unfounded allegations. “Most importantly, we condemn strongly the DSS illegal arrest, detention and dehumanization of Honourable Akanni and we demand an unreserved apology forthwith.

“We have also directed our counsel to seek redress and damages in court, because, to us, this act of impunity by the DSS under President Muhammadu Buhari is undemocratic, unpatriotic, dictatorial and brutish,” Aribisogan said.

The House also alleged that the DSS had been going about sniffing about its members’ secondary school qualifications, adding, however, that they were not bothered about this. The members said they wished to advise the DSS to pay attention to the growing insecurity in the country, instead of acting as an arm of the All Progressives Congress (APC) “to pursue the evil agenda of destabilizing the Ayo Fayose-led government,” adding that the Assembly members remained united and resolutely committed to the development of Ekiti State as being championed by Governor Fayose.

Speaker of the House, Right Honourable (Pastor) Kola Oluwawole, during a question and answer session with journalists, noted that it was wrong for anyone to have accused the state governor of lying when he raised the alarm that Honourable Akanni had died in DSS detention last week.

He said the information received by the government, as confirmed by Akanni himself when he was eventually shown on television, indicated that he had been so sick to the extent that he collapsed twice in a single day.

“For anyone who saw such a person slump and probably was not revived before the privilege of information was terminated, would it be wrong to say such a victim had died? The answer is no! Akanni did slump but lived, the outcome could have been otherwise,” he said.

Ibrahimovic offered £59million deal to move to China

The man with the biggest ego in football, otherwise known as Ibracadabra, has worked his magic again. Who else gets an offer this huge? The PSG star is out of contract at the end of the season and with many top clubs falling over themselves to land the talismanic striker, he can have his pick of the bunch. One offer that has stood out though is from the Chinese Super League, the Asian nation is so eager to have the 34-year-old, the government is willing to finance a deal.

If he settles for the lucrative deal, it will be the ideal ride into the sunset for a player whose trophy cabinet creaks under the weight of his many medals.

AS Roma and Belgium footballer missed the terror attacks by a quirk of fate

Belgium footballer, Radja Nainggolan, 27, who plies his trade in Italy for AS Roma was fortunate to escape the terror attacks that rocked his country due to a commitment with his sponsor. He said:
"If I didn't have a commitment with my sponsor, I could have been at Zaventem airport that morning. Because of the event I had to go to, I arrived in Belgium a day earlier, but in Antwerp. Otherwise, I would have taken an early morning flight from Rome and I would have landed directly in Brussels.
Everything changed. The coach told us that the afternoon training session would be skipped and the camp would be delayed until further notice. So now we don't know what to do. Is our match with Portugal going to be cancelled? I have so many friends who work at the airport. I hope that they are all alright because here I can't talk to anyone. I don't even know the names of the victims, I hope everything is OK."

'Lingering fuel scarcity to persist for next two months' - Kachikwu

Minister of​ State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, today said the lingering fuel scarcity may persist for two more months as oil produced in the refineries would not be sold but kept in a “strategic reserve”. Kachikwu said this while speaking to newsmen after a meeting with President Buhari, members of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) at the state house Abuja.
“One of the training​s ​I did not receive is that of a magician, but I am working very hard to ensure some of these issues go away​. And let’s be honest, for the five or six months we have been here, NNPC has moved from a 50 per cent importer of products to basically a 100 per cent importer. And the 445​,000​ barrels that were allocated was to cover between 50 and 55 percent importation. So it ​is quite frankly sheer magic that we even have the amount of product at the stations. We are looking to see how to get foreign exchange input. The president and I discussed extensively on how to get more crude directed at importation. His Excellency will rather have less crude but have individuals in the society suffer less with inconveniences than have more crude and have them continue to suffer. So we are going to put a new model to enable us increase the pace and actually get (oil) majors as part of the crew of those to bring in more products so that the NNPC will sort of go back to the capacity of what it used to do and the majors will take over the balance of importation. So over the next two months, we should see quite frankly a complete elimination of this. Our strategy is that whatever is produced in the refineries will not go for sale, we are going to keep them in strategic reserve. Because the key problem here is that there is no reserve​.​ ​A​ny​ ​time there is a gap​ ​in​ supply​,​ it goes off. So we are going to dedicate the next couple of months to moving all the products that we produce to strategic reserve so that we can pile up reserves in the nation and that will push up the reserves in the nation. Believe me, this is giving me and my team sleepless nights and we are working on it and we are committed​ to making this go away, Nigerians should please bear with us"he said.
