See 6 Young Football Stars You Never Knew Were Nigerians, 5 will Shock You

We recently told you about Everton youngster, Ademola Lookman, who is the subject of a row between the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) and the English FA over which country he will represent in his international career.
Thesheet.ng brings you a list of six youngsters who have turned down the country to play for another land. Read on…
currently in the Unlike Super Eagles defenders Leon Balogun and Troost Ekong, there is a long list of football players with Nigerian blood, who chose to play for countries — some as far-flung as Haiti, Indonesia and Singapore — other than Nigeria. While many of them bear easily recognisable Nigerian names, others like Everton and England midfielder Ross Barkley have names that makes it difficult to guess their Nigerian roots.
Born in Austria to George and Gina Alaba, Alaba is a native of Ogere-Remo in Ogun state. He started his career in the youth team of Bayern munich, went on loan to Hoffenhaim and came back to Bayern munich where he is currently experiencing his fifth senior season with the club. Alaba currently plays for the Austrian national team, not because he wanted to, but because he never got the chance. He says, ” I wanted to play for Nigeria but i must confess there was no formal approach for me, I was excited because of my dad, he was a fan of Sunday Oliseh when he was playing for Cologne. As a kid, I loved to watch Victor Agali in the Jersey of Hansa Rostock”.

Had Alaba been handed a call up by the late Yemi Tella to play for Nigeria at the then u-17 world cup in 2007, the rest would have been history right now. “I got the news that Nigeria would only be considering those based in the country, perhaps because of travelling logistics and that was the end”. What a painful miss this has been.
Born in Milton Keynes to Kenny and Dennis Alli, he started his football career by signing for MK Dons when he was just 11 years old and has risen through the ranks. He then got signed by Tottenham on the 2nd of Febuary 2015 for £5 million and has gone on to be an integral part of the Tottenham squad this season.

His contributions has not gone unnoticed as he had both Nigeria and England scrambling for him to commit his international career, but he ended up turning down Nigeria to represent his country of birth and made his debut in October 2015,coming on as a substitute for Ross Barkley against Estonia. In missing out on Dele Alli, Nigeria has lost a dynamic midfielder wit the the ability to play all across the midfield.
Did you know that Ross Barkley’s father is a Nigerian? How come he doesnt bear a Nigerian Name?. Well, here is the reason. His parents got divorced when he was still a little boy, he was then raised by his mum. His dad’s name is Peter Effang, his mum’s name is Dianne Ross, he however adopted his mother’s name when he grew up. This has obviously gone on to be a big miss for Nigeria.
Ogbonna was born to Nigerian parents who emigrated to italy from Nigeria in 1988. He started his career in Cassino and then moved to Torino in 2002 where he played till 2013. He was signed by Juventus in July 2013 where he found playing time hard to come by before moving to Westham with a fee worth $11m in July 2015 where he’s now gone on to be an integral part of their squad.
Angelo Ogbonna
He made his Italian senior debut in November 2011,playing in the 2-0 win over Polland in a friendly. Do you know that Ogbonna cannot speak English and is struggling to cope with life in Westham due to language barrier. We do not care though, Ogbonna would have been an integral part of the super eagles defence, talk is better done on the pitch. The Super Eagles is bereaft of strong, powerful defenders right now and Ogbonna would also have been a leader, marshalling the backline from conceding goals.
5. Jordon Ibe
Jordon ‘hybe’ as popularly called in the Uk is another Nigerian football star who has committed his international career to the England National team. He started his career at Charlton at a young age in 2003, then moved to Wycombe Wanderers in 2007 and then to Liverpool in 2012. He is known to be a very impressive winger with dynamic power, pace, control and can take on players on one-on-one situations, something the super eagles lack right now as Musa, Moses and the other wingers hasn’t shown real quality in the super eagles jersey. There was real efforts made by ex-super eagles coach Sunday Oliseh to get Ibe to commit to Nigeria. Although he hasn’t made his senior debut, Jordan Ibe officially ended speculation about his allegiance by committing to England on the 13th of September 2015, a news that has been a big blow for Nigeria.
tiago-ilori-4-640x400Liverpool youngster Tiago Ilori hails from a cosmopolitan background, having been born in England with a Nigerian father and Portuguese mother. His full names are Tiago Abiola Delfim Almeida Ilori. He lived in the Iberian country for more than a decade and considers himself Portuguese.
Born in Austria to George and Gina Alaba, Alaba is a native of Ogere-Remo in Ogun state. He started his career in the youth team of Bayern munich, went on loan to Hoffenhaim and came back to Bayern munich where he is currently experiencing his fifth senior season with the club. Alaba currently plays for the Austrian national team, not because he wanted to, but because he never got the chance. He says, ” I wanted to play for Nigeria but i must confess there was no formal approach for me, I was excited because of my dad, he was a fan of Sunday Oliseh when he was playing for Cologne. As a kid, I loved to watch Victor Agali in the Jersey of Hansa Rostock”.

Lobatan! Kemi Olunloyo has alleged that ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo, Killed Her Brother

Controversial and investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo has alleged that ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo, who is celebrating his 80th birthday today, killed her brother Oyeleke.
According to her, before her brother’s death on December 24rd 1999, when he was just 17, he told Kemi and their mom that he was taken by his dad and his concubine
Ronke Shonaike, who parades herself as Ronke Olunloyo to Obasanjo’s house at Ibefun, a ritualist den, where he was told to bathe in human blood preparing him for a good journey to school abroad and do well. They sacrificed my brother.
Here’s what she wrote;
“We were raised in the Olunloyo family to always tell the truth. In 2014, my dad told me that Obasanjo KILLED OYELEKE! That when my 17yo brother went to open the gate for u March 5th 1999 on his birthday he dropped charms there. Oyeleke died later that year in the UK when a drunk driver hit him.
Before my brother died at 17yo December 24rd 1999, he told my mom and I that he was taken by my dad and his concubine Ronke Shonaike who parades herself as Ronke Olunloyo to Obasanjo’s house and Ibefun, a ritualist den where he was told to bathe in human blood preparing him for a good journey to school abroad and do well. They sacrificed my brother.
I will never stop exposing them. My investigative journalism spares no one. I stopped talking to my father in 2015. My brother in America since 1985. Many of you saw the ritualist videos on Facebook and today on YouTube.com/hnnafricatv, I will transfer them. My Facebook page is closed indefinitely as I deactivated it.
I will go there and transfer the videos to YT. Subscribe to it as I will upload shocking footage. If you have never walked in my shoes, keep shut. Ritualism is real and many Nigerians are in denial of it. Happy Birthday in heaven. Oyeleke would have been 35yo today possibly with a wife and family. My dad and Obasanjo took it all using a birthday March 5th -@kemiolunloyo”

Woman Tells Court - “My Husband Always Uses Withdrawal Method Anytime We Have S e x”

Sex positions
Mrs Mutiatu Olaosebikan, 37, on Friday told an Igando Customary Court in Lagos that her husband, Sunday, usually discharged his sper’m on the floor during s exual intercourse (withdrawal method). Mutiatu, a trader, whose husband sought for dissolution of their seven-year-old marriage, said that the petitioner did not want her to get pregnant again after having a child.
She said, “My husband is in the habit of disposing of his sperm on the floor during intercourse.“He does not want me to get pregnant; he no longer releases sperm into me when we have s ex. “He started this withdrawal method five years ago; I only have one child who is six years old now.
“My husband can go more than six rounds, but will never release the sperm into me, instead he pours it on the floor. “Whenever I queried him about the withdrawal method he uses, he failed to give me a satisfactory answer.”
The respondent said that her estranged husband was an untamed chatterbox.
He said, “My husband is talkative, he talks too much and he cannot keep the family secrets. He is in the habit of sharing our family issues with his relatives, friends and the public. “There was a day I was attacked spiritually; blood was gushing out of my eyes, nose and mouth.
“When I was rushed to a prayer house, I was told that my husband caused the sickness because he talks too much about out affair to the public.”
The respondent also described her husband as tight-fisted.
“My husband is very stingy; he does not give me money. I have been the one taking care of our baby from birth till now,’’ she said.
The mother of one said that her husband had also turned her into a punching bag.
She said, “I have scars all over my body as proof of his abuse anytime we have a misunderstanding, he would beat the hell out of me.”
She urged the court to grant petitioner’s request for the dissolution of the marriage.
She said, “I also want the marriage to be dissolved; I’m tired of the marriage.”
The Petitioner, Sunday, 42, had approached the court to end the marriage over alleged threat to life.
Sunday, a businessman, said that Mutiatu always threatened to kill him.
He said, “My wife is after my life; she stabs me with dangerous weapons whenever we have a misunderstanding. “She once stabbed me with a broken bottle on my head and I bled heavily which landed me in the hospital.
“Whenever we have a disagreement, she brings out knife threatening to stab me. “She is just aggressive and violent in nature; she may kill me one day if I continue with the marriage.”
Sunday said that he was not interested in her having another child from her due to his wife’s violent nature.
“Due to her stubbornness and violent nature, I avoid getting her pregnant by using condom or withdrawal method. “ I don’t want any baby from her again,’’ he said.
The petitioner begged the court to terminate the union on the ground of lack of love.
The president of the court, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, adjourned the case to April 25 for further hearing.

7 Years S e xually Starved Pastor’s Wife Cries Out In Court - “I Want S e x, Not Bible Verses”

A Zimbabwean pastor’s wife, who has gone seven years without se x, couldn’t withhold her emotions when she appeared before a court and accused her husband Petros Tshuma, a pastor with Zion Grace International, of starving her since 2010.
Instead, she says he sleeps with other women from his congregation.
“Your worship, I’m s exually abused by this man as he last had s e x with me in 2010. If I ask him about the issue he would promise to make up for it but when it’s time for s ex he simulates sickness then claims to be feeling pain in his stomach,” she said.
Mary Ngwenya added that her husband would also claim his testicles were swollen but had other partners to sleep with as she literally pleaded for se x in front of the magistrate.
“What I know is that he enjoys s ex with three ladies from our church. I have Whatsapp text messages to prove that.
I’m a human being. I don’t survive on Bible verses and I need my husband to sleep with me. Now I lead a pretentious life telling the women I lead that I’m enjoying my marriage while I’m s ex starved,” she said in between sobs.
However, Tshuma admitted the blame.
“I love my wife but I have a problem, when I engage in s ex my stomach starts to twinge as a result I feel an intense pain and due to
that I had to stop. It’s not true that I’m in love with other women. My wife saw text messages from the women who wanted counselling on their marriages, due to that she quickly concluded that I’m in love with them,” he said.
The judge Masuku ordered Tshuma to have se x with his wife and not to emotionally abuse her.

99% of we Nigerians are smart but not intelligent. We don’t have a simple sense of humor or even understand basic sarcasm. @ogeokoye a dynamic #Nollywood movie mogul is trending on Twitter because of what? This picture?

Lobatan! Obasanjo Doesn’t See Any Good In People, Fayose Again

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has advised former President Olusegun Obasanjo to emulate statesmen like former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar.

According to the governor, Abubakar and other statesmen who work hard to keep Nigeria stable and united do not see themselves as saints.

Fayose stated this while answering questions after a visit to the former military head of state in his Abuja residence.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday, quoted the governor as praising Abubakar for his roles, especially before and after the 2015 general elections, in ensuring stability in the country.

In his remarks, Abubakar congratulated Fayose on his election as Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum.

He also said he had been reading about Fayose’s activities as a leading opposition figure in Nigeria.

He added that democracy needed a virile opposition to thrive and make progress and commended Fayose for the various developmental projects being executed in Ekiti State.

Asked by reporters if he would embark on such a visit to Obasanjo, Fayose said, “Former President Olusegun Obasanjo must take a cue from somebody like General Abdulsalami Abubakar who is working for the unity and stability of the country.

“President Obasanjo must behave like a true statesman. His major weakness is that he does not see anything good in other people or what they do except what he does himself.”

Meanwhile, the redeployment of the former Commissioner of Police in Ekiti, Wilson Ilalegwu, barely three months after he assumed duty at the state’s command and removal of the state’s head of Department of State Services have generated controversy in the state as Fayose, Speaker, Ekiti State of the House of Assembly, Kola Oluwawole, condemned the development.

The governor raised the alarm that he was not privy to the redeployment of the security chiefs, adding that the action undermines his office.

Fayose said that as the chief security officer of the state, he ought to have been informed about the reposts.

“A governor was elected and not appointed. But if those already posted from Buhari’s state have come to do some hatchet job in Ekiti, they should have a rethink. Ekiti is very peaceful, nobody should come and destabilise it. These are steps taken ahead of 2018 governorship election. The Federal Government should not do anything funny,” he said.

Oluwawole, condemning the government, stated that removal of the two security chiefs was to actualise the plan of the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government to arrest the lawmakers.

He added that Ekiti people and the lawmakers were fully behind Fayose.

Speaking in the same vein, Ekiti Unity Agenda, an umbrella body of elders in the state claimed that the redeployment was politically motivated as a former Commissioner of Police in Kogi State, Abdullah Chaffe, an indigene of Katsina State, took charge of police command in Ekiti.

In a statement issued on Saturday, the group said, “We note with consternation the redeployment of the Director of Department of State Services, Abdulfata Mohammed, an indigene from Katsina State. Ekiti Elders Unity Agenda believes the posting of the two men from President Muhammadu Buhari’s state cannot be a mere coincidence considering the role of Governor Ayodele Fayose as a leading voice of the opposition in the country.

“We have every reason to suspect that their postings are to actualise some sinister agenda and to gag officials of the state government and probably heat up the polity to prepare the ground for an emergency rule. Why is Ekiti the only target of repost of security chiefs? Are Katsina indigenes the only ones in the police and DSS? The Commissioner of Police, Wilson Inalegwu, had barely spent three months in the state, so why the rush in redeploying him when the state is enjoying peace and security?”

Gambia's President Adama Barrow pardons another 84 two weeks after releasing 174 prisoners

In the bid to sweep up some of the old legacies of Yahya Jammeh, Gambia's new president, Adama Barrow on Thursday pardoned 84 more prisoners from three different jails, a government source told the French News Agency. 

'The Prison high command Thursday released 98 prisoners who were held at Mile Two, Old Jeshwang and Janjanbureh Prisons. They were discharged on the directive of President Adama Barrow,'  the source said.
This comes barely two weeks after the president initially pardoned 174 prisoners.

Among the freed prisoners were rapists, robbers, burglars and people convicted of firearms offences, the source added. Sixteen were foreign nationals from Senegal, Guinea and Sierra Leone.

It was also reported that President Barrow may have been convinced to act after Mai Fatty, the Interior Minister pledged to build facilities in line with international norms after shocking footage emerged of prisoners kept in dark and bare concrete cells.

We Will Occupy Nigeria if Buhari Fails to Come Back in 2 Weeks- Says Group

Image result for images of buhari
A group known as 'Concerned Nigerians' has given Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari  2 weeks to return to Nigeria, or else ... Read their demands and ultimatum below:
Today – March 4th, 2017 – marks 45 days of President Muhammadu Buhari’s absence from his office as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and from the country as a whole on a medical vacation in the United Kingdom. During this period, he has not made any public appearances and has only clandestinely “communicated” with very few people.
Furthermore, details of President Buhari’s health status have been kept away from the generality of Nigerians while his media team and other members of his cabinet/party make conflicting comments regarding his health.

2. We acknowledge that during this period President Buhari has satisfied constitutional requirements by transmitting letters to the National Assembly handing power over to his Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, on an acting capacity.

However, during this period President Buhari has created a constitutional dilemma by carrying out official functions. On February 13, 2018 in a capacity as President of Nigeria, he spoke to President Donald Trump of the United States with respect to bilateral relations between the two countries.

On Thursday March 2nd, 2017 again in a capacity as President of Nigeria President Buhari spoke to the King of Morocco with respect to bilateral relations between the two countries as well as Morocco’s application to become a member of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

3. These actions, as well as President Buhari’s continued vacation, constitute a constitutional dilemma capable of destabilising the country. President Buhari’s insistence on performing the functions of President after having transmitted power to Ag. President Osinbajo in effect creates de-facto and de-jure, which does not bode well for the country.

4. To this end, we urge President Buhari to return to the country on or before the 60th day after which he left the country (15 days from today) failing which we will begin a series of peaceful processions across the country aimed at sensitizing the public as to the legal & constitutional dilemma created by President Buhari’s continued absence from office and his insistence on performing official functions while away.

God bless Nigeria
