Another member of the gang, 29 year old Adeyemi Kayode, a serving officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence corps and a native of Ojoo in Ibadan, Oyo State serves as a Personal Assistant to the Commandant, NSCDC Oyo State Command. The suspect took undue advantage of his office to obtain the GSM number and location of their would be victim. He hatched the plan on how to kidnap the business magnate to make a demand of one billion naira ransom.

The third suspect, Ayodele Temitayo, a native of Oyo in Ibadan, Oyo State who is the marksman and armourer of the gang, claimed to have been dismissed from 213 Battalion Maiduguri of Nigeria Army as a Private in 2015.

Germany's Chancellor, Angela Merkel to run for 4th term

Angela Merkel, the world's second most powerful person according to a Forbes 2016 ranking, is set to run for her 4th term as Germany's chancellor, according to a senior politician from her party- the Christian Democratic Union.

"She will run for Chancellor," Norbert Roettgen said on Tuesday on CNN's "Amanpour."

"She is absolutely determined, willing, and ready to contribute to strengthen the international liberal order. But we can't see the Chancellor or Germany as last man standing."

"The Chancellor is a cornerstone of this political concept of the West as acting as a global player. So she will run, and she will act as a responsible leader," Roettgen said.
"But it would be impossible to rely only on one person. We need the West, and the West is indispensable.
"And this of course means fundamentally and indispensably also the participation and contribution of the strongest part of the West, and this is the United States of America."

Even though Merkel faces some backlash over Germany's Syrian refugee policies that have seen hundreds of thousands of refugees flock into the country, she remains favorite to win the election if she runs for fourth term as Germans want some stability in government following Donald Trump's U.S election victory,the Brexit vote in Britain and the rise of populist movements in Europe.

Counsel to detained former National Security Adviser, retired Colonel Sambo Dasuki, Ahmed Raji, says none of Dasuki's legal team is aware of the permission the Federal government reportedly granted their client to attend his Father, Ibrahim Dasuki's funeral yesterday November 15th.

Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazzau, told newsmen after the funeral that Dasuki declined permission granted to him by the government to leave his DSS detention cell and attend his Father's funeral.

Speaking to newsmen at the FCT High Court Abuja today, Dasuki's counsel said neither him nor any of the legal representatives received any letter to this effect and that if Dasuki was given permission as claimed, he would have told them.
“As his counsel, we are not aware of that offer. Our client has not told us anything of that nature. We would have expected that if such a gesture was going to be made to him, we as his counsel should have been involved so that we can advise him properly. As I am speaking to you, I am hearing of this for the first time.”he said

Lionel Messi bans himself and teammates from talking to media after allegations that his teammate smoked marijuana

Argentina Lionel Messi helped Argentina in their world cup qualifier match against Colombia with a 3-0 win on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning but that's not what caught the headlines-the Barcelona star organized a march with his Argentine teammates to the post match press conference and informed the journalists present that he and his  teammates will not give any briefings, interviews or communication to the media till further notice.
Messi's shocking revelation comes after Argentine press accused Argentine striker Ezequiel Lavezzi of smoking marijuana at the Argentina training ground the day before the Colombia match coupled with numerous reports blasting Messi for not performing for his country the way he performs for his club side.

Messi said in a statement: 
“Hello, good evening, excuse me, but this is a small one. We prefer to look at the face before giving a statement. As you know, because we know everything here, we are telling you that we will not talk to the press anymore, obviously you should know why. Accusations and lack of respect and we never said anything, but this goes beyond everything. The accusation to Pocho (Lavezzi) is very serious and if we do not go out to say anything it is believed that it is true”. 
“We’d rather cut this one down. We are very sorry that it has to be this way, but we have no other choice. We know that many of you are not in the game of lacking respect, you can lose, win, play good or bad, but get into one’s life … If we did not cut it today we would not cut it anymore.We know that most of you guys don't play that game of disrespect. We can be criticised if we lose, or win, or if we play well or badly. But this is getting into personal lives. 
'If we don't put a stop to it now, we'll never stop it.' It’s very serious and we are here, and we will not get into that game. We are going to keep saying a million things. That said. A million thanks”.

An Argentine Journalist Gabriel Anello of Radio Mitre, tweeted that Lavezzi was left out of the Argentina squad for the Colombia match due to his use of Marijuana but the player has denied the claims saying he'll take the journalist and media house to court.

Anello Tweeted: 
“Lavezzi is left off the substitutes’ bench tomorrow because of the joint that was smoked last night in the camp? I’m asking… just asking.”
Lavezzi responded:
 “I have hereby communicate that I’m going to initiate legal action against Gabriel Anello for his false declarations against my person, for the serious damage that they have caused to my family and in my work.”

Check out Donald Trump's $100million Trump Towers penthouse ...photo

The president-elect will soon leave his palatial abode on New York's Fifth Avenue to take up residence at the White House. His tastefully furnished $100million pent house at the Trump Towers was decorated in a true billionaire style.

The three-storey property which he developed himself was completed in 1983. The opulent home has breathtaking views of Central Park and over-the-top decor starting with the gold and diamond front door that greets visitors.

Inside is an eccentric scene - floor-to-ceiling marble, chandeliers, pillows bearing Trump's coat of arms, statues and art worth millions of dollars.

It is currently home to Trump, his third wife Melania, 46, and their son Barron, 10. Its posh interior was designed by Angelo Donghia - also referred to as 'the Saint Laurent of sofas'. The designer took inspiration from The Versailles, the largest and most luxurious palace the world had ever seen, built by King Louis XIV of France who led an absolute monarchy from 1643 until 1715.

Update! Why Sambo Dasuki rejected FG’s offer to attend his dad’s burial

The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Danbazau, said ex-NSA Sambo Dasuki, on Monday declined an offer to visit his late father, Ibrahim Dasuki, in an Abuja hospital while he was alive.

He also said Sambo had declined another offer to be in Sokoto to mourn and bury his late father.

NAN reported that the minister disclosed this while addressing newsmen in Sokoto on Tuesday.

Danbazau said, “We had discussed with the Director-General, DSS, yesterday (Monday) and Sambo was offered to visit his late father on his hospital bed in Abuja.

“He declined and said he preferred to pray for him. He was also offered to be in Sokoto throughout the mourning period and he also declined, preferring to pray for his late father. That was the true situation.”

The minister described late Dasuki as a true nationalist, and prayed Allah for the repose of his soul.

Reacting to the minister’s claim, Dasuki’s counsel, Mr. Ahmed Raji (SAN), said he was not sure that the Federal Government gave his client such offers.

He said, “I am not aware of such gesture and our client did not tell us that such offer was extended to him. If such courtesy was to be accorded they should have informed the lawyers. But we were not informed. We are not aware of anything like that.”

Sources say Sambo Dasuki rejected the offer because he doesn't want to go to his family house with men of the SSS on his trail.

UNIOSUN reveals why they sacked lecturer who 'Slept' with a female student

The authorities of Osun State University (UNIOSUN), has given reasons why a former lecturer of the institution, Dr. Olabode Ojoniyi, who was involved in a s*x video scandal was sacked.
"We have to nip the scandal in the bud. Whatever has happened in UNIOSUN happens in any profession. Just that it is worse if it happens here (UNIOSUN). Because a lecturer is supposed to be a parent. It is worse, it is an immoral act and should be condemned."
Fielding questions from newsmen during an interactive session in Osogbo, the newly appointed Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Labode Poopola stated that the randy lecturer was disengaged from to send warning to others who are in the act or may want to involve themselves in such act.

He expressed disappointment that a lecturer who is supposed to be a parent or guardian to students could engage in such ‘immoral’ act.

He said, “The system has laid down methods of dealing with any one that engages in such. There are disciplinary measures, no lecturer will have infractions on our values and won’t be disciplined.

“If you followed the story, you will realise that this university is a product of law and non of its statues can be stampeded. When we find someone defaulting, the university takes all necessary steps.

“On this matter, the university took all the steps at all levels – Departmental, Faculty, Senate. Whatever you might read lately is the decision of the council. I am not in a position to say what next will be done.”

When asked whether Ojoniyi’s doctorate degree could be withdrawn, he said, “Degrees are earned and worked for. UNIOSUN can’t strip him of his degree but wherever he got it from.”

Man kills 16 yr old step daughter for money rituals ...photo

A 63-year-old man, Korede Odubela, has been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly killing his 16-year-old stepdaughter, Amudat Oshimodi, for ritual purposes.

According to Punch, the suspect was said to have connived with another accomplice, Lekan Lawal, to commit the crime at Imosan village, in the Odogbolu Local Government Area of the state.

The two suspects were among the 12 suspects paraded at the command headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, on Tuesday by the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, for various offences, including armed robbery, burglary and stealing.

Iliyasu said Odubela, who was the leader of the gang, connived with Lawal to strangle Oshimodi, after which they sold her head and hands to ritual killers.

The police commissioner said the men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad received information about their activities and swooped on them on Monday, November 7, 2016.

Odubela said he connived with Lawal to kill his stepdaughter because the 16-year-old girl was always stealing her mother’s money.

He said, “The mother said we should kill her as a sacrifice for other children she had. She (Oshimodi) normally slept by the outside door. On that day, around 12 midnight, I invited Lekan Lawal, and he held the girl by the neck and strangled her while I held her legs.”

Odubela said he sold Amudat’s head to his son, Seun, a herbalist who paid him N3,000, as part payment.

However, Odubela’s wife, Fausat, denied asking her husband to kill her daughter.

Iliyasu said the case was still under investigation, while the corpse of Amudat had been deposited at the morgue of the Ijebu Ode General Hospital.

The command also paraded suspected robbers –Tochukwu Njikonye, Abdulahi Abdulamid and Obinna Mbam – who were said to have been arrested on Monday, October 3, 2016, in the Ogbere area of the state. The police said they were arrested while robbing motorists of their valuables.

Iliyasu said the suspects were armed with two pump-action guns and one locally-made pistol, adding that they usually blocked the road with either truck or wood to “perpetrate their nefarious activity.”

Ben Carson rules out serving in the Trump adminstration because he has no political experience

Retired neurosurgeon and former Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson who campaigned tirelessly for President-elect Donald Trump, has ruled out serving as part of Trump's administration, due to his lack of political experience, according to a report from The Hill.

The TV host Armstrong Williams, who is a close friend of Carson, told The Hill that Carson was not interested in serving the administration in any official capacity, although he would consider a more informal role of an advisor in all White House going ons.

Williams also denied reports that Carson had been offered a role, adding that “he was never offered a specific position.”
“Dr. Carson feels he has no government experience, he’s never run a federal agency. The last thing he would want to do was take a position that could cripple the presidency,” he said.
Donald Trump himself had previously suggested that Carson would join his team, saying that he hoped that Carson “will be very much involved with my administration.”

He is now the national chairman of the My Faith Votes charity, which encourages Christians to vote.
