Police have arrested three jockeys after an 18-year-old girl alleged she was gang raped during a party.

The girl was left with 'appalling injuries' following the attack which she claims happened at one of jockey's homes in Chiseldon, Swindon.

Brendan Powell Jnr, 21, Sean Mooney and Richard Condon, both 20, were arrested.

Police arrested Mooney before he was about to race in Doncaster. They detained him whilst he was in the jockey's weighing room.

The news of the arrests of the up-and-coming jockeys has already rocked the tight-knit world of racing.

One source told the Sun: 'They are all very good jockeys and very popular. It will come as a huge shock to punters and everyone who knows them.'

Mooney had been due to ride Cincuenta Pasos in an apprentice handicap at 4.05pm before police arrived. Racecourse bosses scrambled to find a replacement jockey to take his place. 

Police arrested Powell Jnr at his home with Irish jockey Condon who races on the Marlborough Downs in Wiltshire for trainer Neil King.

A stand-in had to replace Powell Jnr as he was due to ride Our Reward in a National Hunt novices hurdle race at Liverpool's Aintree course on Saturday while he was in police custody at the time.

Powell Jnr's family is well known in racing as he is the son of a Grand National winner and top trainer, Brendan Powell Snr.

The 21-year-old became a professional at just 16 and has ridden 14 winners this season alone.

They have been released on bail until a date in late December pending further inquiries.

Tragic! 21-year-old Nigerian student stabbed to death in Ottawa, Canada ...photo

A 27-year-old man is in custody and expected to appear in court later today after a 21 year old Nigerian student was stabbed to death in front of Piper's Bar and Grill in Otanwa, Canada.  

Staff Sgt. Bruce Pirt of the Otanwa major crimes unit said police are working to determine a timeline of events, and called on any witnesses to come forward. 

Investigators know something happened in front of Piper's Bar and Grill, but don't know if it started there, ended there or happened partway through.

Evidence markers peppered the pavement outside the bar, then curved their way across St. Laurent Boulevard to the Coventry Road median.
"We're not sure if it's all evidence but let's capture it, both on camera and physically, and we'll decide later on what really is evidence and what isn't. Right now let's keep the scene big and gather everything we can because we only have one crack at a scene." Pirt said.
Pirt said it's a big scene because they have to analyze all the blood and potential evidence, but they're trying to narrow it down.
"We do have some bloodletting that covered quite an extensive area, we have to make sure it's all connected to the same incident. As we investigate further we'll be able to tighten up that scene and make it smaller and smaller."
He added that police have been gathering video evidence from "a number of establishments" surrounding the crime scene.

Protest as Lagos bans LAGBUS from plying Ikorodu Road

Residents of Ikorodu community in Lagos state are currently staging a protest following the decision of the state government to ban the LAGBUS(red buses) from plying their route which already has the BRT (blue buses) plying it.

Acting Commissioner for Transportation, Prince Anofiu Olanrewaju Elegushi, at a press conference on Friday, said the decision was taken ahead of plans to introduce Intelligent Traffic System along the BRT corridor in the state.
Elegushi said consequently, all LAGBUS would no longer be allowed to load or drop passengers along the BRT corridor, pointing out that it was part of steps taken to relocate all other franchises from the use of the corridor.
“Henceforth, the LAGBUS buses can only provide end to end bus services using the expressway and service lanes along the Ikorodu Road stretch. The restriction does not extend to charter staff buses run by LAGBUS; does not preclude access to depot along Ikorodu road and express services are allowed with only few designated stops. All routes from Ikorodu hinterland will now terminate at TOS Benson Bus Stop after which there will be no loading of passengers. However, the operations of LAGBUS buses have been moved to other 14 routes identified by the Lagos State Metropolitan Transport Master Plan.”
This decision however left many of the commuters stranded this morning. They are currently staging a protest and calling on the government to rescind its decision.

Jose Mourinho attacks his players Chris Smalling & Luke Shaw who refused to play because they weren't feeling 100%

Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho has publicly criticized his defenders Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw after they pulled out on the match against Swansea on Sunday because they didn't feel 100% fit to play the game.

According to Mourinho, he had to make do with a second choice defensive line up (Phil Jones and Mattheo Darmian as center back and left back respectively).

He stated that the two players have betrayed Man United's culture by not playing through the pain for the club, insinuating that his players should be prepared to play through the pain for the sake of their shirt.
"I have a friend who is a big tennis player and he tells me when he remembered more the times he plays with pain than the times he plays without pain," Mourinho said to MUTV.  To compete you have to go to the limit. It is cultural for some – and that is not my culture. More than me, it is Man United. 
"We have players with problems. At every sport – and I know because I have friends in others sports and they play at the highest level in their sport.
"Valencia had surgery on his arm, Bailly has a long-term knee injury, Smalling doesn't feel that he can play 100 per cent with his pain. Luke Shaw told me this morning that he was not in the condition to play so we had to build a defensive line. 
"To be honest, I trust the four boys that are on the pitch. I go with the players that are convinced they can do it and I am very confident. I know Ashley Young is not a right-back but Ashley Young is a champion. Matteo Darmian is always ready to do his best and Phil Jones, he understands the moment of the team. He understands that we are in trouble so he is ready to go and accelerated his process. 
“Maybe his process would take him more time but he's put himself on the line to go with the team. Marcos [Rojo] is the same. Daley Blind has some problems but he put himself available to be on the bench and to try to help the team so the people that are here are people that I trust for a difficult match."

Asked if Smalling and Shaw had to change their mindset, Mourinho said:
“Exactly. More for Manchester United than for me.”
Mourinho added:
 “After the draw with Burnley we need points. It was a great performance, but it was one point and we need the three points. It was more important to get three points than the performance, but we have both. I would love to play Carrick in every game, but it is not possible. For the same reason I cannot go to the gym every day anymore. He played very well. 
“Ibra is not a player who lacks confidence. A striker who does not score goals is one player less, but a striker who does everything else is one who does well. He works hard defensively, in the build up, he gave assists. I was not worried.”

Lobatan! No more Visa for Nigerians to Dubai...MUST READ!!!

The Dubai Police declare all Nigerians in Deira wanted after a group of Igbo Armed Robbers robbed a store and stabbed to death a police CID Officer who confronted them during the robbery.

All blacks in Deira have gone into hiding from the police. There is a warrant of arrest for all Nigerians after a group highly suspected to be Igbo Nigerians who stabbed a police CID officer to death which prompted the Dubai police to launch a mass arrest of all blacks without minding their nationalities.

Equally, a ban has been placed on the issuance of visas to Nigerians especially after the incidence. The Unite Arab Emirates will no longer issue visas to Nigerians anymore. Those who have relatives in Dubai should be warned. 

The atmosphere is said to be in a chaos at the moment especially for those who have no permits. Some group of greedy and criminally minded Nigerians have painted us black yet again. If there are some good people remaining on the face of this earth, the emirates are one of them. and yet we have abused their hospitality with our criminality for export.  

Why! Why!! Why Nigeria!!!

Not only are we going down for this wicked act but our actions have equally affected other peaceful and law abiding people that are blacks in that country. 

May God help we Nigerians especially...shame!

Andy Murray becomes World Number 1 for the first time in his career

Tennis star, Andy Murray, is officially the first Brit to be World number one -since John Newcombe in 1974- after beating John Isner 6-3, 6-7, 6-4 to win the Paris Masters on Sunday. It was Murray's first Paris Masters title and the victory brought Murray his sixth ATP title of a very good 2016 for the Brit.

A 405 point gap now seprates Murray from former world number one Novak Djokovic with the ATP World Tour Finals to begin next weekend in London. 

“It feels different, certainly, to when I had won a Grand Slam or anything like that or the Olympics. It feels quite different. Maybe just because of the way it happened, really,” said Murray to journalsits.

“When you play a final, you win or you lose. Whereas with the No.1 ranking, it’s not really like that. I could still potentially have had a chance to do it next week so it feels kind of different.”

Murray's rise to the top could be short-lived though, as previous number one Novak Djokovic could reclaim the top ranking he held for 122 weeks if he wins every match at the upcoming ATP World Tour Finals in London.

Donald Trump still says 'Hillary is guilty, she knows it! after FBI clears Hillary Clinton

FBI Director James Comey has revealed that the agency will not pursue criminal charges against U.S presidential candidate Hillary Clinton barely a day to the elections, after shocking the American public last month when he sent a letter to Congress saying the FBI had discovered emails that could be connected to the now-closed probe of whether Clinton mishandled classified information while secretary of State.

"Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July," Comey wrote in the new letter to congressional committee chairmen.

According to Comey, the FBI won't be going through with investigation of Hillary Clinton as they've searched through thousands of emails found during the FBI's separate investigation into a sexting incident by Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

"We went through this as fast as we could," a senior FBI official told CNN. 'We worked round the clock'

"Keep in mind we are focused on intent," the official said. 
"We know there are classified materials, but that doesn't change the conclusion reached back in July."

Trump, who is closing down Hillary in polls nationally and in key battleground states, reacted to the news, saying it isn't possible to examine 650,000 emails in eight days.

"You can't review 650,000 new emails in eight days. You can't do it, folks," Trump said in a Minneapolis rally on Sunday, adding, "Hillary Clinton is guilty. '
'She knows it, the FBI knows it, the people know it, and now it's up to the American people to deliver justice at the ballot box on November 8."

"She wants virtually unlimited immigration and refugee admissions from the most dangerous regions of the world to come into our country, and to come into Minnesota, and you know better than anybody," he said.

"Her plan will import generations of terrorism, extremism and radicalism into your schools and throughout your communities. You already have it. When I'm elected president, we will suspend the Syrian refugee program and we will keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country."

Meet pastor who just had sex for the first after getting married ..photo

Apostle Job Antwi of Association of Virgin Pastors in Ghana has regretted not having sexual intercourse until when he got married. The anointed man of God who recently tied the knot with his wife, said he never knew sex was that sweet...
‘I never knew sex is this sweet; since I was born I have not experienced this before. It is sweeter than everything, in fact I wish I can do it every day’ he stated in an interview on Joy FM’s Weekend City show.

Speaking also on his first experience, the pastor who regards himself as an anointed and powerful man of God despite breaking his virginity said:
'My wife has dated before and has experience so she taught me how to do it. I love my wife than every lady on this earth, If you marry in the Lord and you sleep with a woman, God likes it so still the power of God is upon me.'

Update! Another EFCC probe links Obanikoro to millions from Diezani...

Image result for images of obanikoro
Former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, has been fingered in a new N400m scam.

Impeccable sources at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission disclosed that Obanikoro, who was released last Friday, might be invited again soon to explain his alleged role in the scam.

The ex-minister, who returned from the United States on October 17, spent three weeks in the Abuja office of the EFCC for allegedly receiving N4.7bn from the then NSA and distributing over N3bn to Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State and Senator Iyiola Omisore, the PDP governorship candidate in Osun State in 2014.

For that, Obanikoro returned N100m to the EFCC with a promise to return another N480m.

His American and Nigerian passports were subsequently seized before his release last Friday.

An EFCC detective told Punch that recent investigations showed that Obanikoro allegedly received N400m from a former Minister of Finance, Senator Nenadi Usman, who was the Director of Finance of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation during the build-up to the 2015 elections.

The source said sometime in 2015, Usman sent the money to Obanikoro through a proxy.

The detective said, “As part of investigations into the billions disbursed by Nenadi Usman during the build-up to the 2015 elections, we interrogated a suspect at our office. The suspect told us that he handed over N400m to Obanikoro in the presence of some PDP members.

“So, Obanikoro will be invited to the Lagos office of the EFCC to tell his own side of the story.”

The EFCC had alleged in March that about N3.145bn was mysteriously transferred from the account of the ONSA, domiciled in the Central Bank of Nigeria, to the account of Joint Trust Dimensions Limited, a company allegedly owned by Usman.

Mrs. Usman was said to have transferred N840m to the account of the Director of Publicity of the organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, in Zenith Bank on February 19, 2015, while she allegedly gave former SGF, Chief Olu Falae, N100m on the instruction of a PDP stalwart, Chief Tony Anenih.

Usman and Fani-Kayode have since been arraigned before the Federal High Court in Lagos and their accounts frozen.

Apart from the ONSA fund, Usman allegedly disbursed a separate N23bn to various states during the build-up to the elections.

The money Usman disbursed allegedly emanated from a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

The money, which was $115m but converted to N23bn, was alleged to have been kickbacks from some dubious oil contractors involved in oil theft.

The EFCC has, so far, grilled about 16 ex- governors and ministers over the N23bn Diezani scandal.

Tragic! Father kidnaps his two sons and kills them and himself...photo

A father, Christopher Cadenbach killed his two young sons, 5-year-old Ethan and 4-year-old Owen, before turning the gun on himself in St. Louis on Saturday night.
Cadenbach, had a $100,000 bond issued for his arrest in connection with a previous domestic violence dispute, but on Saturday afternoon when he met with his mum and two sons at the park, he told his mum that “he wasn’t going to be taken alive”.

Police said Cadenbach left the park in his mum’s car with the two boys, and then she called police to report the kidnap and car jacking.
Police issued an Amber Alert for the children Saturday night and a park ranger spotted a vehicle matching the description of Cadenbach’s car at Cliff Cave Park in South County, police said.

A helicopter overhead saw someone moving towards the vehicle and officers moved toward the scene, but they immediately heard gunshots, police said.

Officers say Cadenbach shot and killed his children.
"He was apparently shooting his children. We tried to engage him and it appears he took his own life,” said St. Louis County Police Department's Deputy Chief Kenneth Cox.
A family member said:
"A mother who was trying to protect her children, will now have 2 funerals for these babies. These babies also have 2 older siblings as well.

Pope Francis warns against 'building walls' ahead of U.S presidential election

On Saturday evening, while addressing the Third World Meeting of Popular Movements at the Vatican, the Roman Catholic Pope, Pope Francis warned against building 'walls', saying tyranny doesn't find support unless it taps into people's fears.

Donald Trump's proposal to build a wall between the United States and Mexico has been a major focus point of his campaign mantra, but the Pope, without directly calling out the U.S Republican presidential candidate, stated clearly that 'all walls fall', saying God doesn't want a life of enclosure of banishment for his children. 
"No tyranny finds support without tapping into our fears," Francis said.  "This is key. Hence, all tyranny is terrorist. And when this terror -- which was sown in the peripheries, with the massacres, looting, oppression and injustice -- explodes in centers with different forms of violence, even hateful and cowardly attacks, citizens who still retain some rights are tempted to the false security of physical or social walls. "Walls that enclose some and banish others. 
Walled citizens, terrified on one side, excluded, exiled, and still more terrified on the other. Is that the life that our Father God wants for their children? "Dear brothers and sisters -- all walls fall. All of them. Do not be fooled."

University Lecturer involved in sex scandal is sacked by the school authority

The management of the Osun State University, UNIOSUN, have sacked one of its lecturers, Olabode Ojoniyi of the department of Languages and Linguistics who was recently involved in a sex scandal.

Olabode who is married with children, some months back tried to solicit sex for increased marks from one of his female students identified as Mercy Ikwue.

He invited Mercy over to a hotel and while he was persuading her to give in to his request, Mercy secretly started recording their conversation using her laptop which she pretended to be using to watch a movie. She later released the video to some of her friends who made the video go viral.

Olabode was summoned before the school's disciplinary committee. After a thorough investigation, he was found guilty and subsequently dismissed last week.
