A 24-year old man has reportedly set his 64-year old father ablaze for allegedly killing his mother in Abube-Uno community, Nando, in Anambra East local government area of Anambra state.

The man, identified as Abuchi Onuorah, was said to have slaughtered the deceased body before setting his corpse ablaze.

The Nation gathered that the deceased, Mr. Onyiauke Onuorah, was trailed to his room and murdered, before his corpse was dragged outside and burnt.

A resident of the area who preferred anonymity, said the deceased was killed by his son for allegedly masterminding the death of his 51-year old estranged wife, Okwundu Onuora.

He alleged that the deceased used diabolical powers to inflict disease on the wife for flaunting his instructions not to visit their daughter, Nede, after delivery.

He said, “Onyiauke threatened his wife that if she went for their daughter’s ‘Omugwo’ at Nteje, she would not come back alive.

“But the woman went against her husband’s directive. During the visit, she was struck by a mysterious stroke and died two days later.”

According to him, before her death, the woman had revealed to her children how their father threatened to kill her spiritually if she dared to visit their sister that put to bed.

“So, when she eventually died and the message got to her children, one of her sons, Abuchi, dashed to their father’s room, dismembered him with cutlass and poured fuel on his charred remains and set it on fire,” he sobbed.

The Nation further learnt that Abuchi fled the community before the arrival of police operatives, who reportedly parked the deceased burnt body parts and whisked it away.

It was also gathered that the deceased’s younger brother, Okechukwu Onuorah, was allegedly apprehended by the police when they could not lay hands on the principal suspect.

The chairman of Umuodolu kindred, Mr. Uju Egwuonwu, and President-General of Nando Development Union, Mr. Ignatus Aghadinaunor, confirmed the development.

Egwuonwu disclosed that Okechukwu was arrested in connection with the incident.

But the Police spokesperson in the state, Haruna Muhammed, said he was not aware of the development.

Why You Must Stop Storing Fuel In Your Cars - Fire Service Issues Serious Warning










The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Fire Service has warned residents to desist from storing fuel in vehicles, Vanguard reports.

Mr Timveh Jerry, agency’s Public Relations Officer (PRO) gave the warning in an interview with newsmen on Friday in Abuja.

He said that it had been observed that people were in the habit of buying and storing fuel in gallons.

“We frown strongly at people buying fuel and storing in vehicles either to use it later in generators or for any other domestic use.


“When you store fuel in a wind up vehicle there is every tendency for heat to be trapped in such vehicle.


“Because fuel is inflammable it will always want to look for a means of escape which is what we call ‘Evaporation’.

“As they keep evaporating, they circulate in that vehicle and once this evaporated inflammable air come in contact with any ignitable it will explode,” Jerry said.

He added that the service had embarked on several sensitisation programmes to educate the public against such attitude as it was a continuous process by the service.

Jerry also advised filling station owners against discharging fuel when the weather was hot to avoid fire outbreak.

Nigerian Army Reacts To Video Showing Soldiers Cutting Off A Criminal's Leg


A photo from the video

The Nigerian Army has reacted to the trending video of men in military uniform cutting off the leg of a suspected criminal.

Read the press statement below.

The Nigerian Army (NA) has observed with dismay a video clip circulating on some social media platforms showing some persons in camouflage uniform mercilessly disfiguring a leg of a fellow human being, with some others shabbily, carelessly and variously dressed. Some are wearing bathroom slippers.

The NA wishes to emphatically state that having thoroughly examined the video and investigated further, it has reached the factual conclusion that all the characters involved in the despicable act are not personnel of the NA.

The action of the characters in the video clip particularly the act of meting out cruel punishment, talk less of decapitating a part of a fellow human being is not licensed, encouraged or condoned by the NA and is entirely against NA’s training, Code of Conduct (COC), Rules of Engagement (ROE) and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) in or out of conflict situations.

Instructively, the camouflage used by the characters in the video is not the type been used in the NA and does not in any way conform to the dress code of the NA. Similarly, NA troops are not allowed to wear bathroom slippers and civil outfits during operations.

NA troops fighting insurgency in Nigeria, have severally captured many terrorists, took custody of many surrendered terrorists some of whom have been prosecuted, while those that voluntarily surrendered are undergoing de-radicalization and rehabilitation under the Federal Government programme codenamed Operation SAFE CORRIDOR.

NA wishes to once again remind members of the public that not all photos and videos being circulated on social media and other outlets are truly members of the NA. NA has also severally and consistently made it clear that it monitors and will continue to monitor the actions of its personnel to ensure they are in conformity with extant laws and in line with International best practices.

Under the present leadership of the NA, sufficient efforts have been made to ensure personnel respect human rights in line with the ROE, COC and SOP. Any violation attracts appropriate punishment in accordance with the extant military justice system.

Members of the public are requested to note that the barbaric act (as shown in the video clip), has often been associated with the terrorists either as a punishment to one of their own or to send out powerful message to their followers and the larger public with the sole aim of instilling fear which is one of the major basis and aims of terrorists/terrorism.

Goje To Declare For Senate Presidency Next Week


Mohammed Danjuma Goje,

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Appropriations, Mohammed Danjuma Goje, will formally declare for the position of senate president next week after the passage of the 2019 budget, a ranking senator has said.

The senator, who did not want to be named, said Goje delayed his declaration because of his commitment towards the quick passage of this year’s budget which was before his committee.

The senate fixed Tuesday next week for the consideration and passage of the 2019 budget. It is after the passage that Goje will make his official declaration, the ranking senator said. Already, Senate Leader, Ahmad Lawan (APC, Yobe), and Sen. Mohamed Ali Ndume (APC, Borno) have declared their intention for the race.

The APC national leadership zoned the position to the North East and adopted Lawan as its sole candidate. North East stakeholders, including the North East Consultative Forum (NECF), and five other groups in the zone, last week, endorsed Goje and demanded for his immediate declaration for the position.

A serving APC lawmaker said Goje did not want to combine his legislative work on the budget with the aspiration to vie for the senate presidency. He said other groups from across the country were mounting pressure on the former Governor of Gombe State to contest for the presidency of the red chamber.

The senator said Goje was of the belief that the passage of the budget should be paramount to all in view of its importance to the smooth running of the country.

“His priority is to get the budget passed for the prompt assent of Mr. President. As a committed loyalist of the president and APC, he doesn’t want anything that would delay the passage of the budget. He is of the view and conviction that the success of the president is his and that of all Nigerians.


“This was why he worked tirelessly and religiously to ensure the victory of the president, the governorship candidate and all others who vied on the platform of APC in Gombe State,” he said.

Woman Brutally Kills Husband After He Forgot To Buy Chicken For Dinner (Photo)



The couple

A woman in east China stabbed her husband to death after he forgot to bring home some chicken legs. The couple got into a heated argument in their flat in Lujiang county, Anhui province on April 13 after the husband came home empty-handed, according to Chinese media.

The woman then grabbed a fruit knife from the kitchen and slashed her husband to death.

Relatives of the victim, who was named as Wu Shouchun, said that the woman, surnamed Luo, became very spoiled and bad tempered after getting married.

‘She would hit her husband, but he would never retaliate,’ Wu’s cousin told Anhui Broadcasting Station.

Neighbours also said that arguments between the couple were a daily occurrence.

Wu’s mother, He Changying, told reporters that her son was attending a business dinner when her daughter-in-law asked him to bring her some chicken legs.

However, after the meal, Wu forgot about the errand and returned home without the food she had asked for.

During the argument, the furious wife rushed into the kitchen, grabbed a knife and slashed Wu.

Emergency services rushed him to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The couple, who have a son and daughter, often argued about the caretaking responsibilities of Wu’s elderly mother. The wife insisted that her mother-in-law move into a storage room with no windows – which Wu adamantly refused.

Lujiang County police declined to reveal any details amid ongoing investigations, the report added.

Neymar Handed Three-match Champions League Ban


Neymar

Neymar has been handed a three-match Champions League ban for a foul-mouthed Instagram post made following Paris Saint-Germain's loss to Manchester United in which he insulted the match officials after his side's controversial defeat.

The Brazilian missed PSG's shocking defeat to Manchester United in the last 16, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men progressing to the quarter-finals after a surprise 3-1 win in Paris.

But UEFA have elected to sanction the £200million forward for his comments made in the aftermath, over the controversial penalty awarded against Presnel Kimpembe late on at the Parc des Princes.

The match official had initially given a corner kick, before VAR intervention subsequently saw a spot-kick awarded, with Marcus Rashford converting to send United through.

Neymar, who had watched from the stands but was on the touchline by that point, let his fury with the decision be known on social media.

Posting on Instagram, he stated: “This is a disgrace, they put four people that know nothing about football in charge of looking at the replay for VAR.


"There is no penalty. How can it be a handball when it hits his back! Go f*** yourselves!”

According to eye-witnesses, it's also claimed that Neymar angrily made a beeline for the referees' office after the game.

He allegedly forced his way through the corridor to outside the officials' office and had to be restrained by members of the PSG staff.

A UEFA statement declared: "The CEDB has decided to suspend the Paris Saint-Germain player Neymar Junior for three (3) UEFA competition matches for which he would be otherwise eligible, for insulting match officials."

As such, the ex-Barcelona man will now sit out half of the 2019-20 group stage.

The 27-year-old made his return to action from a broken foot in PSG's 3-1 win over Monaco last weekend - a result which secured another Ligue 1 title for the club.

The arrested students

Policemen have been accused of beating and molesting students of Adekunle Ajasin University in Akungba township in Ondo State following a protest that forced the management of the school to shutdown the university.

Trouble started after the school management tried to enforce ‘no payment of tuition, no test/no examination’ policy.

It was alleged that the policemen acting on the order of the University management, led by Prof. Igbekele Ajibefun attacked some students who were found hanging around the school and were forced to lay on the ground before they were arrested.


Some students were allegedly injured by the police in the course of arrest as others reportedly escaped being arrested by hiding in the roof.

The massive protest erupted on Wednesday as the students resisted the school authorities’ decision to enforce the policy from last Tuesday when 100 level and 200 level students commenced their test.

The university had in a circular issued in March 2019 stated that students who were yet to pay their tuition would pay additional N10,000 for late registration, and whoever does not register would not be allowed to write first semester 2018/2019 test and examination.


Sequel to the protest, the management of the institution had directed all students to proceed on mid-semester break.

The university in a statement signed by its Registrar, Dr. Sunday Ayeerun, directed all students to vacate the school immediately.

The statement said the students are to return to campus on May 20, 2019.

After my National Youth Service (NYSC) in 2008, I met this lady by name Rahab Mercy Yohanna in Kaduna. We were (and still are) both members of the same Church - Living Water Anglican Church, Ungwan Pama. Before I met her, something happened. I went home in 2011 and informed my parents that my wedding would be on 28th December, 2012. That was a date I had fixed by faith because at that time I had not found the woman to marry yet. It was a faith declaration of some sort. That was on September 27, 2011, to be exact.

Next, I took Mercy home to Gada Biyu, my home town, for my parents to see her. That was in December of 2011. At the time she was going for her Higher National Diploma, HND, at Nuhu Bamali Zaria. On Friday, 6th April, 2012, we went to the motor garage to board a car to travel to the village for proper introduction at my fiancée’s place, Gora Gida. At that time I was the Youth President of my Church and a lady in my church was getting married the following day, Saturday, April 7, 2012. I was to represent the church at the wedding at Zagom. So I had programmed to attend the wedding and then head to Gora the next, Sunday, April 8, for the introduction proper.

Interestingly, the day, 6th April, was a 'Good Friday' and what happened later explains just how the experience of Good Friday became my own. There were passengers everywhere on that day, as people were traveling home for the Easter celebration. We then decided to pick a few passengers to fill the empty spaces in the bus since we were heading home. There was no conductor and so I was the one closing and opening the door for incoming passengers.

As we started the journey, a few minutes later, as we got to Kujama, we had a tyre burst and Polycarp later narrated that he was confused when it happened and in that state of confusion he applied the brakes… You know what happens in such a scenario. Do you know what? The “troublesome” man who insisted on having, and actually had my seat, was the only one that died in that accident. The door of the car was said to have squeezed with him.

Back to my fiancée. She completed her HND programme and was posted to Rivers State for her National Youth Service Scheme, NYSC. She completed and came back. She told me something which struck me hard and has stuck with me ever since. She said, “God spoke to you and you saved me. And I won't have peace of mind if I run away and abandon you.”

She also added, “I know how I felt the day we agreed to settle down - an inner joy that I had never felt before all my life. I must make sure we complete what we have started. No matter how long it takes, no matter for how long you will be in this state, I will WAIT. I know you will recover. BE STRONG.”. Those words kept me! I was determined to be back on my feet to reward this love with my own love.
