PHOTO:Shocking! Dogs Bite Off 4-Year Old Boy’s Skull In Igando, Lagos

boy
Four-year-old Omonigho Abraham is currently battling for his life at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, after his scalp was eaten by two dogs.
The dogs chewed the skin and exposed the victim’s skull during the attack which happened on Thursday on Adegboyega Street, Akesan Estate, in the Igando area of Lagos.
Punch Metro had reported last week that the police arrested the two dogs for attacking Omonigho.
However, our correspondent learnt from eyewitnesses that the dogs dragged him through the compound for more than one hour while policemen and sympathisers watched helplessly at the entrance of the house for fear of being attacked by the savage dogs.
The immediate elder brother of the victim, seven-year-old Osemudiamen, told our correspondent that the dogs had chased him, Omonigho and their elder brother, Bobby, while they were taking turns to ride a bicycle.
He said, “We were riding a bicycle in the compound when the big dogs ─ Jack and Gadaffi ─ started barking at us. Later, they moved towards us.
“My elder brother and I quickly ran upstairs and locked the door while Omo (Omonigho), who could not run fast, was left behind.
“When he got to the door, he knocked that we should open for him and as we did, one of the dogs forced his way into the house with him.
“We all ran out. Bobby jumped down from upstairs and I also jumped. But Omo could not jump, so the dog attacked him.
“The other dog also joined in the attack and there was nothing we could do.”
It was learnt that the screams of the children who managed to get outside attracted passersby and residents who besieged the house.
No fewer than seven policemen from the Igando Police Station reportedly stood at the gate, confused.
An eyewitness, who lived on the street, but pleaded anonymity, said, “The police came, but said there was nothing they could do. The dogs were growling as they ate the child alive and that sent fear into everyone. Nobody could move inside to challenge the dogs. Everybody was just shouting in confusion and wielding sticks.”
The victim’s mother, Mrs. Helen Abraham, who was away when the incident happened, said her son had been injured by the time she arrived at the scene.
She said, “When I got there, I met a crowd. They asked me not to go inside, but I refused to listen to them. One of the dogs emerged from the corridor with blood stains in its mouth. I ran inside. The other dog, on sighting me, pounced, but I fought back. It later ran away. I called on people who joined me to take him to a hospital.
“This has been a nightmare I want to wake up from.”
The victim’s father, Mr. Odia Abraham, said the medical personnel at the Igando General Hospital asked them to transfer him to LASUTH because of the severity of the attack.
“The doctor at Igando said his condition was critical and we should take him to LASUTH. When the incident happened, I was away at work.
“But when I got home, I saw parts of my son’s scalp on the floor. The dogs dragged him through the compound for about one and half hours and nobody moved near them. His face was also affected, but thankfully it did not get to his eyes.
“His two brothers, who survived, also got injured. The seven-year-old who spoke with you has a fracture, which we are still treating. The other, who is 13 years, has a minor injury.
“We marked Omo’s fourth year birthday in June. He is a very intelligent boy and he always tells me he wants to be a soldier because he loves to protect people. I am hoping this thing will not affect his brain,” he said.
The police were said to have arrested the owner of the dogs, one Stanley Wesley.
A resident said the people living in the house had warned Wesley about his dogs but he refused to listen.
She said, “We became alarmed when he brought a third dog recently which was more ferocious and bigger than the others. Whenever he took that dog on a walk, even adults would be scared.
“People told him to find a place to keep his giant dogs, but he refused to listen. It was the new dog that first followed those children into the house.”
When our correspondent visited the Burns and Plastic Ward of LASUTH, he was told the victim was asleep.
The matron in charge of the ward told our correspondent she would not comment unless the Public Relations Officer of the hospital gave an approval.
However, the PRO was said to be unavailable as he was on leave.
A medical officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the victim’s condition was “serious and critical.”
The Police spokesperson, Lagos State Command, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, said the police were the ones that actually rescued the victim.
Nwosu said, “I can confirm to you that on September 25, at about 5.40pm, dogs belonging to one Stanley Wesley attacked and harmed a four-year-old boy and the matter was reported at the Igando Police Division.
“The report from the Divisional Police Officer indicated that the dogs were being kept to undergo some tests, while their owner had been arrested. The report that the police did not do anything is not true.”

must see:6 Things Your Woman Secretly Wants In Bed But Will Never Tell You[for all guyz]

Hot_CoupleS_-_1024x768_-_Wallpapers_-_aman15-1.jpg_a_23-795x596
You may have known your woman for years but are you aware of her secret wishes? The woman who is completely docile in bed can have some fiery desires tucked away in her heart. Women have secret sexual desires which they do not feel comfortable to share with their male partners in fear of hurting their ego. Here are some ideas about what your woman may be secretly wishing from you in bed.
Focus on her entire body

Women relate sex to love and desirability. They want their men to love every part of their body. Kissing them on the inner thigh or the earlobes arouse them like nothing else. This, I hope will give you enough clue to know how to have better sex and give her pleasure too.

kiss her earlobes

Let her know that she is special

Love making needs to be a complete sensuous experience for women. You know every woman loves to be pampered. She needs to be pampered in bed too. You can do that physically and emotionally while making love to her. Tell her how special she is, how she makes you feel and how much you love her. Speak to her and praise her body parts. She will enjoy immensely the attention you shower on her and your love making will reach a different level.

pamper her to make her feel special

Extended foreplay

A woman needs to feel loved through her whole body. That is why foreplay is so important to her. It is not necessary only to arouse her and make her reach orgasm but also to raise her senses. So, extend your foreplay and find innovative ways to caress her. You should remember that there are some spots in her body which are more sensuous like her neck, earlobes and inner thigh.

extend foreplay on bed

Talk dirty

Most women hate to admit it but they enjoy dirty talk. They want their men to talk nasty things while love making. This is one of the weird fantasies of women. But they seldom reveal this because they fear that their men may do this outside the bedroom also.

talk dirty to her on bed

For you the clue is to get real dirty between the sheets and keep it restricted there only.

Be aggressive to her

She wants to be treated like a queen but while in bed she wants you to get rough. Yes, many women fantasize being handled in a rough way by their partners. This may come as a surprise to you because she is a “good girl” but acting nice always doesn’t make her happy. She will want you to get aggressive in bed and do wild things. Spanking, cursing and handcuffing are some of the things you can try.

try satisfy her fantasies

A woman friend went on to admit that she wants her man to treat her like a prostitute. This may come as a shocker to you but it is true.

Her wild fantasies

You are not the only one who wants to get threesome. Even she fantasizes that. Yes, women have fantasies that may make you go green. Going threesome, role playing, making out in the public are some of her lustful fantasies.

A woman may continue to hide things she wants her man to do to her in bed. Being sensitive towards her and talking frankly will make her open her heart.

10 Biggest Relationship Mistakes That Most Guys Can’t Stop Making[see cos it destroys]

Unhappy-Couple-The-Trent1-795x530
Guys like to think they’re cool and that they know all there is to know about girls. Strange then, that so many of them make such stupid mistakes, when it comes to having a serious relationship with one! It’s even stranger that they all seem to make the same mistakes; don’t they even talk to each other?! So listen up guys, here are the biggest relationship mistakes that most guys just can’t stop making:
Not letting go of the ex
Your girlfriend doesn’t want to talk about your ex, hear about your ex, see her photograph and no, it’s not OK, if you go for a coffee with your ex! Check out the meaning of ex in the dictionary, if you unsure about this.

Telling her what to wear
You probably liked the low cut top and short skirt when you first met your girlfriend, so why should you start insisting that she dresses up like a nun now? Stop being so insecure! If she wears a short skirt now, then it is for your benefit, not for that weirdo at the other end of the bar who keeps looking your way.

Getting over-possessive and super jealous
A girl is not going to drop all her male friends and acquaintances, just because she is dating you. It is perfectly possible for members of the opposite sex to be just good friends. Jealousy and over possessiveness can kill even the best of relationships! Remember it.

Indecision and lack of initiative
Any modern girl has a right to say what she wants, but sometimes they just want you to make a decision. A man should be able to take the lead and not always just say ‘whatever you want, my love’.

Taking her for granted
Yes, she loves you. She might even worship the ground that you walk on! But she still wants to know that she’s appreciated. Don’t take the relationship for granted, make an effort or you might find her walking away.

Treating her like one of the lads
When faced with the dilemma of going out with your friends or going out with your girlfriend, trust us, taking your girlfriend with you on your boy’s night out is not the best solution. Girls like special nights out, just for the two of you…and a bit of sweet romance…They don’t want to share that with all your noisy buddies at the sports bar.

Getting too comfortable
Just because you are comfortable in a relationship doesn’t mean that you can return to all the old bad habits that you had when you lived on your own. You know what we’re talking about: the belching, the scratching and the breaking of wind in a fashion that would be worthy of an Olympic gold medal!

Treating her like a servant
She’s your girlfriend, not your live in maid. She’s not just there to do your cooking, washing and ironing, so give her some respect. If you want that kind of service, go live with your mother again, although it’s doubtful that she would do it any more for you either!

Not being in her corner
If in doubt, back your girlfriend. You are supposed to be a team, so if there is an argument with someone else, then it’s your girlfriend that you should back up. It’s a big mistake to take someone else’s side.

Making her words to go in one ear and out the other
Not listening and, listening properly, is a very common and fatal mistake that most guys make. Your girlfriend has a right to an opinion and she deserves to be listened to, especially as girls can often see things that men can’t.

What other relationship mistakes most guys do make, on your opinion?

“I Wanted To Use Stolen Money To Build A House For God” – 56-yr old Pastor Says,

ADVERTISE2
“A Pastor and two others who specialises in hijacking and diverting trucks transporting goods within Lagos and Ogun States have been arrested by Operatives of Federal Anti-robbery Squad, FEDSARS after a tip-off that a group of robbers had hijacked a 25ft container bearing 25units of heavy duty outdoor split air conditioners worth over N25m.

They were later arrested at their respective homes when the FEDSARS men where able to trace one of the robbers to his base in Ijora, after they had successfully hijacked the goods and transported it to their warehouse in Ibadan. The 4th man, one Oliver is however still on the run.
22 units of the airconditioners have so far been recovered, while two had already gone missing and one damaged.
One of the suspects, who claims he is a Pastor and 56 narrates why he partook in the operation; “My name is Peter Iyesele, 56-year-old, I am married and I have four children. I am a pastor and I have a church along Badagry expressway.

“I was arrested at Igando bus-stop for participating in hijacking and diversion of goods worth over N25 million. I have been engaging in these operations for years but after a while I stopped and invested proceeds from the operations in transportation.
“For about nine years, I didn’t participate in any of these operations because I had made enough from the operations until I received a call from God to serve him. I was doing well in my transportation business before I was duped by a woman.
“The reason I went back into robbing was to get money to expand the church of God where I pastor. If I had succeeded, I would have used the proceeds to build a house for God.”
The three men have been charged to court while police are still making efforts to arrest Oliver

Man who killed his mom to undergo psychiatric test[see]

ADVERTISE2
THE middle-aged man, Uchechukwu Ugwuozor, who allegedly stabbed his mother to death in Enugu State, may be subjected to psychiatric test to ascertain his health status in course of investigation, State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, has said.

Also, another notorious kidnap kingpin who has been on the wanted list of the State police command has been arrested.

Speaking to our correspondent in Enugu, yesterday, the police spokesman said the allegation of his being mentally-deranged actually came from his family members.

He said, “The health status was insinuated by family source. We are carrying out proper and detailed investigations to unravel the true state of the suspect cum the circumstances or the motive behind the dastardly act.”

The murder suspect allegedly hacked his mother to death when she was sleeping in the early hours at Ubiekpo Abor, Udi local government area of Enugu State.

On the arrested kidnap kingpin, PPRO Amaraizu said, “the war on crime and criminality by the Enugu State command of the Nigeria Police Force is yielding positive dividend as there has been harvest of several suspected criminals since the renewed onslaught on criminals.

“Following the onslaught, operatives of the Central police station of the Enugu State command of the Nigeria Police Force, acting on the intelligence gathered, arrested a notorious armed robbery and kidnap kingpin who has been on the wanted list of the operatives”.

The suspect was arrested on Sunday at Udi axis of Enugu north axis of the State.

Nigeria has accepted responsibility for the seized $5.7m allegedly meant for the purchase of arms in South Africa.

Sambo-Dasuki-640x357
The Federal Government accepted responsibility for the $5.7million allegedly meant for the purchase of arms that was seized by the South African government.

The $5.7m seized is coming barely three weeks after $9.3million dollars was seized by South Africa from two Nigerians and one Isreali who had allegedly entered the country to buy arms on behalf of the Nigerian government.

The government while claiming ownership of the second cash seized, however denied any wrongdoing in the deal.

According to the National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki who spoke through his media aide, Karounwi Adekunle, there was a genuine business transaction between both countries and nothing was wrong with the transaction hence it was wrong for the South African government to confiscate the said money.

“We want to state clearly that a business transaction actually took place between a legitimate company in Nigeria and another legitimate one in South Africa through the bank,” said Karounwi Adekunle.

“In the course of events, the South African company could not perform and decided to refund the money. What is illegitimate in this transaction done through the bank?”, Adekunle asked.

“It is our hope that South Africa would reciprocate this noble gesture”, he added.

The City Press of South Africa had reported Monday quoting its sister paper, Rapport, that the $5.7million was seized by The Asset Forfeiture Unit of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) though it bore the imprimatur of senior security officials from Nigeria.

According to the report from South Africa, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd) personally issued the end-user certificate for the arms the money was meant to buy.

An entire “shopping list” was supplied with the certificate, which included everything from helicopters to unmanned aircraft, rockets and ammunition.

This brings to $15million the total cash seized from Nigeria by South Africa in the last one month.

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane says David Moyes had a “weak dressing room” during his time at the helm.

ADVERTISE2Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane believes David Moyes had a “weak dressing room” during his time at the helm.

Moyes lasted less than a year as manager of the Premier League giants before he was sacked in April after a series of poor performances.

But Keane said the players needed to do more for Moyes, particularly as the Scot tried to replace the retired and successful Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.

“I wonder about the current United dressing room,” Keane wrote in his autobiography, The Second Half.

“When a manager like Sir Alex Ferguson is replaced, the new man needs a helping hand along the way.

“Does that mean every player should like the new manager or his coaching staff, or love his new sessions and everything about him? No.

“I look at the current players, and they should have been doing a lot better.

“It might be argued that it was up to the manager to motivate them. But not liking a manager, for whatever reason, can never be an excuse for not going out and doing your best.

“Looking at what happened to David Moyes, I have to conclude that he can’t have had a strong dressing room: he had a weak dressing room.”

On Ferguson, Keane – who left United in November 2005 – was furious with the way his departure from the club played out.

Keane slammed Ferguson and former United chief executive David Gill.

“I’d known for a few days they were trying to get rid of me,” he said.

“I said to Ferguson ‘Can I play for somebody else?’

“And he said ‘Yeah, you can cos’ we’re tearing up your contract.’

“I knew there’d be clubs in for me when the news got out. I said ‘Yeah, I think we have come to the end.’

“I just thought ‘F****** p****s’ – and I stood up and went, ‘Yeah, I’m off.'”

Keane also said he had no regrets over his reckless tackle on Alf-Inge Haaland’s and revealed he once headbutted Peter Schmeichel.

just in:6 things you must know about marsturbation [for all]

Porn-Promo-The-Trent-795x412
This is one topic, that doesn’t come up a lot when it comes with women but apparently, most have been reported to ‘flick the bean’ at least once a week, according to a study done by the Journal of Sex Research.
Even though the numbers were small, researchers managed to gather 20 women all of which were of different ages, races, ethnicities and sexual orientations. Although the responses were different from each individual, most of these results leaned towards the more free-spirited women. Despite the difference in answers, we’re certain that you will find the outcome pretty engaging. Check out some of the most surprising facts about masturbation.

It doesn’t have to be romantic – This particular activity was compared by a woman to brushing her teeth in the morning. So, there is not a lot of effort that has to be put in when it comes to getting yourself aroused. It’s not complicated and it will surely leave you feeling great to start the day.

Women don’t do this – WRONG! So wrong. A lot of women have this misconception that masturbating is only reserved for the men. But in fact, some women admitted to doing it a few times a day, so it’s not only for the guys.

We’re clueless to how other women do it – While some have this idea that women masturbate by using a toy or self-penetration, most admitted to focusing on clitoral stimulation. Keep in mind, there is no “normal” way to get off, do whatever pleases you.

Sometimes it’s a chore – While most women enjoy masturbating, some admit to feeling like it’s a chore due to the fact that they aren’t able to finish with their partner or achieve an orgasm. Check out some tips online on how to masturbate and you will never feel like you’re vacuuming again.

It makes you happy – Many women said that pleasuring themselves is another way to get in tune with their bodies and allows them to accept everything about it. There are also other benefits to masturbating such as feeling pleasure and joy, relieving stress, trial and error on what makes you orgasm and basically just, orgasm!

We all do it – According to a research done by a university, most women do take time to jill off (the female slang for jacking off). Even if they don’t do it a few times a day, most have done it at least once in their lives. So, go ahead, diddle the ADVERTISE2

WHAT:Is Goodluck Jonathan really clueless?see his plans for 2015,how is this possible?[see]

droping soon
The English have an expression: “give a dog a bad name in order to kill it.” It refers to the malicious misrepresentation of someone in order to discredit him. This has been strategy of the opposition to Goodluck Jonathan to date. This opposition comprises an unholy alliance between the APC, the Arewa Consultative Forum, the Northern Elders Forum as well as the Boko Haram. In complete disdain for the office of the president of Nigeria, the membership of these institutions has gone to great lengths in despising, disdaining and abusing the person of Goodluck Jonathan.
“Clueless” opposition
One favoured insult is to refer to him as “clueless.” Taking a leaf out of the infamous notebook of George Bush who told all kinds of lies against John Kerry in the 2004 presidential election in the United States, now referred to as “snow boating;” President Jonathan’s traducers are seeking to establish falsehood about him and his administration just by sheer force of repetition. It is therefore necessary to ask the question if, indeed, Goodluck Jonathan can be rightly described as “clueless.” What exactly is “clueless” about Goodluck Jonathan?
President Goodluck Jonathan
Shehu Shagari was president of Nigeria from 1979 to 1983. He had very limited formal education and never attended a university. Nevertheless, he was not called “clueless.” Olusegun Obasanjo was president of Nigeria from 1999 to 2007. He did not go to university before becoming President: he only enrolled after he left office. Nevertheless, he was not labeled “clueless.”But some would like us to believe Goodluck Jonathan, who has been substantive president since 2011 is “clueless.” However, Jonathan is the most highly-educated president in the history of Nigeria. He has a B.Sc. in Zoology; an M.Sc. in Hydrobiology and Fisheries Biology; and a Ph.D. in Zoology. It is preposterous to describe such a man as “clueless.” Indeed, there are few Nigerians with comparable educational credentials. Who are those “clueful” ones ranged in opposition against him? Surprise, surprise! They are former military dictators with no university training whatsoever and dubious politicians with forged university certificates.
Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State wants to be president. But what he displays most of the time is cluelessness. When he captures newspaper headlines, it is to shout things like: “Jonathan wants to kill me;” or “Jonathan is not qualified to contest in 2015.” Somebody needs to advise Kwankwaso that abusing and disparaging the president is no substitute for having substantive policies on how to govern Nigeria.
Legacy of “cluelessness”
Who can be more clueless than many of the Northern politicians who have been in power in Nigeria in the past to very little effect and are still clamouring for power today? These men have defrauded the North and the country over the years? They have ruled for some 38 years but failed woefully to promote meaningful economic development in the North or the South.
In their years of Northern rule both at the state and the federal level, not a single model Islamic school was established in the North that teaches Mathematics. Instead, the children of the “talakawa” are restricted to Koranic memorization and recitation. No single Islamic model school was established in the North that teaches Chemistry. The singular focus was on Arabic grammar. No single Islamic model school was established that teaches Biology. The children of the poor were limited to Islamic history.
Northern politicians failed to draw inspiration from such excellent Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates, where Western education is not deemed to contradict Islamic education. Instead of educating the youth, some of our Northern politicians kept them as fodder for instigating insurgencies for their selfish power-political gain. It is no wonder therefore that, in the 21st century, when a “Third World” country like India has landed a spacecraft on Mars; an insurgency has arisen in the Nigerian North-East claiming that “Western education is a sin.”
Northerners opposed to Jonathan, like Muhammadu Buhari, Ango Abdullahi, Adamu Ciroma and Junaid Mohammed have never demonstrated any belief in the education of the masses. Their children don’t attend almajiri schools and beg on the streets. When in power, they pay no attention to the mass illiteracy in the North. This makes them no different from the Boko Haram that maintains western education is sinful. Now that we have a South-South president from Otuoke in Bayelsa State who is committed to Northern education, these same do-nothing politicians are claiming he is clueless. Who needs their “cluefulness?”
Jonathan’s northern agenda
Atiku Abubakar showed remarkable cluelessness when he observed that the North would not be voting for Goodluck Jonathan in 2015. If the North would not vote for Jonathan, who then would they vote for?
In 2011, Jonathan received over 8 million Northern votes. Since then, he has bent over backwards to reward the North. He has highly favoured the region in his appointments. The former Deputy Senate President, Ibrahim Mantu said: “Quote me; in a long time we have not had a government where the northern extraction has enjoyed so many appointments like this one.” Indeed, under Jonathan, the Vice-president, President of the Senate, Speaker of the House of Representatives and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court are all from the North.
Jonathan’s opponents would have us believe he is “clueless” but, within four years, Jonathan built 125 Almajiri Schools in 13 states in the North; something Northern rulers themselves failed to do. At the commissioning of the first Almajiri Model School in Gagi, Sokoto State, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Abubakar Sa’ad III, observed that Jonathan’s action was unprecedented in the history of Northern Nigeria.
“Clueless” Jonathan went on to establish ten new federal universities; seven of them in the North. It is important to list them, so Nigerians can be in no doubt how ridiculous the allegations against our president have been. Jonathan established the Federal Universities in Lafia, Nasarawa State; Lokoja, Kogi State; Kashere, Gombe State; Wakari, Taraba State; Dutsin-Ma, Katsina State; and Dutse, Jigawa State. No other president in the history of Nigeria has this kind of legacy, North or South.
The Jonathan administration has more than doubled the budgetary allocation to education in the country. It sponsored 7000 lecturers for post-graduate studies at home and abroad and licensed 100 Innovation Enterprise Institutions, while also granting 101 Presidential Scholarships for innovation and development. 51 Polytechnic laboratories have been rehabilitated and
34 new NCE awarding institutions created.
The result has been remarkable. There has been a 10 million student increase in basic education enrolment (UBEC) in the country. There has also been a 75% increase in O’Level credit pass in Maths and English under the Jonathan administration.
Health transformation
Part of the grouse of Nigerians against past governments is that when subsidies are removed (especially that of petroleum), the extra money disappears into thin air without any appreciable public benefit. For this reason, Nigerians insist on the retention of subsidies so that the man-in-the-street can at least get something out of it. However, under the Jonathan administration, it has been possible to identify the salutary effect of the subsidy removal on the well-being of the people.
With the drastic reduction of the petroleum subsidy in 2012, the government created the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P). This is designed to invest the savings accruing from the subsidy reduction in critical infrastructure and human-resource empowerment projects across the length and breadth of the country. To this end, the scheme has included maternal and child-health programmes.
Within two years, the Maternal and Child Health scheme of the SURE-P has reduced the maternal mortality ratio in Nigeria by 26%; reduced neo-natal mortality by 22%; increased the percentage of births by skilled attendants by 33% and increased the percent of reproductive aged women using family planning by 100%.
Road transformation
SURE-P has also been invaluable in engaging in a number of road rehabilitation projects right across the country. For example, the Onitsha-Owerri and the Vom-Manchok roads have been completed. Work is underway on the Apapa-Oshodi expressway in Lagos; the Benin-Ore-Sagamu dual carriage-way; the Onitsha-Enugu-Port Harcourt dual carriage-way; the Kaduna-Maiduguri dual carriage-way; Lokoja – Benin road; Lagos-Ibadan Expressway; Mokwa-Bida road; Akure-Ilesha road; Sokoto-Tambuwal-Jega road; Enugu- Abakaliki- Cross River road; Ogoja – Ikom road; Vandekiya-Obudu road; and the East-West road.
The Kano-Maiduguri and the Abuja-Abaji-Lokoja roads are currently undergoing dualisation. The Onitsha Head-Bridge Flyover (Ojukwu Gateway) and the Oweto Bridge across River Benue have been completed. The Second Niger Bridge is under construction and the government is also undertaking the dredging the River. There is also on-going seaport construction and the expansion of existing ports, including Warri, Baro, Calabar, Onne, Owerri and Onitsha.
Rail transformation
The railway system in Nigeria had been comatose for over 30 years. However, the “clueless” Jonathan administration has managed to revive this within two years. The Lagos-Kano line has been rehabilitated and is now functional again. The Port Harcourt-Maiduguri line is being rehabilitated and will soon be operational. Kano-Maiduguri, Kaduna-Abuja and Lagos-Port Harcourt rail-lines are also under construction.
President Jonathan inaugurated two Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs) train-sets and six air-conditioned passengers’ coaches at the NRC terminus in Lagos. His administration also launched the Mass Transit Train Service (MTTS); deploying 11 trains carrying close to 15,000 passengers daily within the Lagos metropolis. This has drastically reduced the cost of intra-city train transportation within Lagos.
A return-trip from Agege to Ebute Metta under the MTTS now costs less than N150, as against the more than N1,000 it costs by taxi. Transportation from Lagos to Kano now costs less than N1,800 as against between N4,000 and N5,000 by car or bus.
This is what Babatunde Fashola had to say about the “clueless” Jonathan administration’s contribution to mass transit in Lagos State: “It is a very welcome development to our nation, Nigeria and to the Centre of Excellence, Lagos State. No doubt, we require this infrastructure. We appreciate it and we will continue to give every moral support that the corporation requires as we now have complementary services in the transport system of Lagos State.”
These are by no means the tokens of a “clueless” presidency.

Reveald:see who is providing armunations and money for boko haram[leader speaks]

arms
After many speculations on where the Islamist militant group, Boko Haram, are getting the weapons they frequently use to unleash terror in the north-eastern states of Nigeria and Abuja, their main sources have been unveiled.

According to US network TV NBC, most of the Islamic terror group’s weapons are either stolen from Nigerian military stocks or purchased on the thriving Central African arms black market, say the experts, including current and former U.S. officials.

While many have often wondered where the insurgents source their weaponry from, given both the sophistication and the sheer number, ThisDay reports that the group blamed for last month’s kidnapping of nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls routinely raids police stations and military bases in search of weapons

It was also gathered that in some cases, Boko Haram sympathizers in the Nigerian military abet the theft.

“There are hints that sympathizers in the Nigerian army will deliberately leave doors of armouries unlocked for Boko Haram,” said John Campbell, U.S. ambassador to Nigeria from 2004 to 2007.

It could also be recalled that a top military officer was indicted several years ago in Kaduna, for supplying the weapons of the Nigerian army to Niger Delta militants, led by, now jailed, Henry Okah.

The terror group has been conducting its campaign of terror in the northern states of Nigeria and neighboring Cameroon on the cheap, making mayhem with a makeshift collection of small arms, automatic weapons, rifles, rocket- propelled grenades and mortars, experts on the turbulent region say.

The report also stated that apart from weapons, the rebels frequently seize non-lethal equipment that helps them carry out their terror attacks, quoting one U.S. official.

Apart from benefiting from sympathizers in the Nigerian military, the Islamic terror group is said to be able to purchase small arms and occasionally some larger weaponry in nearby conflict zones, “probably Libya, probably Chad.

These arms are believed to be acquired through “shady, black market” arrangements across barely marked borders, as the official put it.

The porousness of the Nigerian borders was also said to be encouraging the proliferation of the country with illegal arms, according to Michael Leiter, a former director of the National Counter Terrorism Center and now an NBC News analyst.

“The collapse of Libya has further flooded the market,” said Leiter. “Whether these came from Chad, Nigeria, or Libya is almost irrelevant, as such arms are widely available.”

Cache of Arms

Arms trade expert William M. Hartung agrees. “It’s one conflict after another,” he said. “Because of the nature of the conflict … the concentration of conflicts … the black market in Central Africa is more vibrant than other places.”

Campbell, the former U.S. ambassador to Nigeria, says the array of small and automatic weapons, grenades, mortars, mines and perhaps car bombs “is all Boko Haram’s soldiers need to carry out their brand of terrorism.”

It could be recalled that officials in Cameroon on Tuesday showed a cache of weapons they said was seized near the Nigerian border last month following a rescue of some other kidnapped victims.

A Cameroon defense ministry spokesman, showing off a variety of weaponry including Russian-made AK-47s, said the cache represents what they are up against on a daily basis in trying to combat Boko Haram.

Boko haram beheads seven in borno[see]

Boko Haram militants killed seven people on Monday in the remote northeast of Nigeria, residents and an official said, with reports indicating the victims were beheaded in a revenge attack.
The overnight raid targeted the town of Ngamdu in troubled Borno state, the area hardest hit in the Islamists’ five-year uprising.
When locals woke they discovered “seven people had been brutally killed”, said resident Musa Abor.
The gunmen “slit their (victims) throats just the way people slaughter goats”, he added.
Abor and a Borno state official, who asked that his name be withheld, said the bodies had been decapitated, in the latest act of gruesome violence blamed on the Islamists who have killed more than 10,000 people since 2009.
In recent months, Boko Haram insurgents have targeted reprisal attacks at locals who have fought alongside the military as vigilantes.
An army officer in Borno, who also requested anonymity, said 15 Boko Haram fighters were killed in clashes in Ngamdu two weeks ago and the group had vowed revenge against the community.
Those killed on Monday could not immediately be identified as vigilantes and the defence ministry was not available to comment on the attack or the alleged beheadings.
The violence came as Nigerian Muslims marked the Eid al-Adha festival, a public holiday in the religiously divided country. Most Islamic holidays in recent years have been marred by Boko Haram violence.
The militants are thought to be in control of more than two dozen towns and villages in the northeast, but the military has vowed to retake all lost ground as part of a continuing offensive launched in May of last year.
The military had imposed a travel ban across Borno and neighbouring Yobe state to last through the Eid holiday to guard against insurgent attacks.
But the measure is almost impossible to enforce in the remote region, where analysts say the army does not have enough troops on the ground to patrol a vast area with a terrible road network and poor mobile phone coverage.

GOD HELPS:i was sleeping in the street of ghana just to make it-patoranking shares painfull story[see]

PatorankingW-00
Today, Nneameka Okorie, popularly called Patoranking, is one of the most celebrated reggae-dancehall artists in Nigeria and by extension, Africa. But the story, like that of most people, has not always been that good for the ‘Alubarika’ star.
Patoranking was recently in Ghana for a show last week where he had an exclusive interview with top Ghanaian radio personality Bola Ray on Starr 103.5 FM. In the course of the interview, he revealed that his music career actually started off in Ghana.
According to him, ‘I started music from my mum’s belly, but dancehall has always been something that I grew up listening to and it was perfected in Ghana.’
