Crime / Airline Worker Busted With Cocaine (PHOTO) by icnsystem(m): 5:00pm On Mar 22
(CNN)A crew member of Fly Jamaica Airways has been arrested for attempting to smuggle cocaine into the United States, according to a statement by the US Customs and Border Protection.

The drugs were discovered after the man was escorted into a private search room at JFK International Airport in New York on March 17, the statement said. His flight had arrived from Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Federal agents said they discovered four packages taped to his legs. Nine pounds of cocaine was seized, with a reported street value of $160,000.
Photos released by the CBP show the suspect, in his airline uniform, with pants pulled down and white tape around his thighs and ankle.
The suspect has been charged with federal narcotics smuggling and will be prosecuted by the US Attorney's Office.

Nairaland / General / A Debate Is Raging Online.does A Straw Have One Or Two Hole.? by icnsystem(m): 10:12pm On Feb 27
An extremely important debate is raging online –
This is more complicated than you might think.
Put your politics aside, because people are arguing on Twitter over something else for once.

Do straws have one hole, or two?
At the time of writing, two thirds of the 85,000 or so people who voted in Twitter user Jess Marfisi’s initial poll thought straws had one hole.
But before you jump to conclusions, let’s take a look at the facts.
If a straw really is “just a long plastic donut” then it has just one hole, right?
Well, some people were arguing for two holes, and you can see what they’re getting at.
Straws have an entrance and an exit, which could also mean they have two holes.
If we remove straws from the equation completely, what does that leave us with?
If a wall has a door in it, that just counts as one hole, so surely it’s the same for straws?

It gets even more complicated.

What about adding an extra hole in the middle of the straw? Does that change your mind?
This is a discussion that can turn friend against friend, or at least distract everyone in the office for half an hour.
They were arguing against the very boundaries of the debate itself.
So what is the right answer?

Well, the Oxford English Dictionary definition of a hole is a “hollow place in a solid body or surface”.

That makes it sound like the empty space within the straw is the single hole, rather than there being one at each end.

Rigid dictionary definitions aside, the truly enlightened concluded that really, there was no right answer.

Sports / Nigerian Women's Bobsled Team Make Winter Olympic Histor by icnsystem(m): 8:55pm On Nov 17, 2017
CNN)Thirty years after the Jamaican bobsled team captured hearts around the world, three women from Nigeria stand on the brink of making history of their own in the same event.

Driver Seun Adigun and brakewomen Akuoma Omeoga, Ngozi Onwumere have qualified for Pyeongchang 2018, ensuring an African nation will be represented in the sport at the Winter Olympics for the first time ever.
Despite numerous success stories in the summer Games -- notably gold in the men's football at Atlanta 1996 -- no Nigerian has ever competed in a Winter Olympic event before.
Now, after completing all five qualifying races, the Nigerian women's bobsled team are on their way to South Korea in February.
"Ecstatic to say the least!" posted the Bobsled & Skeleton Sports Federation of Nigeria (BSFN). "To see a mere dream come to reality is a true blessing."
"Their hard work was inspiring and I hope Nigerians can appreciate what it took for them to achieve this," said BSFN president Solomon Ogba.

"They are all very successful people in their own right -- in sports and out of it, and somehow they are still motivated and still push for more success.
"I have watched them train and work hard to represent Nigeria at the Winter Olympics in a very technical and high risk sport and they have achieved that."

Away from the ice, all three have been professional track and field athletes in their time.
Adigun, who once dreamed of becoming the first woman in the NBA, enjoyed particular success in the 100m hurdles, winning the national championships on multiple occasions and representing Nigeria at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Now they go where no Nigerians have gone before.
"We are from a continent that would never imagine sliding down ice at 80 or 90 miles per hour," Adigun told the BBC in March. "I find the idea of getting people to take to that inspiring in itself."

Romance / Woman With Two Vaginas Pregnant Despite Doctor’s Claim She’s Infertile (PHOTO) by icnsystem(m): 7:44pm On Jun 06, 2017
32-year-old woman who was born with two vaginas is now pregnant.

Her pregnancy has continued to baffle her doctors, as she had been told that it would be impossible for her to have children.

Her vaginas lay right next to the other.

Doctors said Krista Schwab would never get pregnant because of complications caused by her rare condition called uterus didelphys.

The horse trainer, who was diagnosed when she was 12, has two vaginas, two cervixes and two wombs.
But as she considered IVF, she suddenly discovered to her amazement that she was expecting.

Krista, from Washington, USA, said: “After being diagnosed with uterine didelphys at 12 years old, I knew I had two uteruses and two cervixes.

“But when I was 30, I found out that I also have two vaginas that are side by side. I always felt the separate sections during intercourse and smear tests, but I just thought that feeling was a normal thing every woman had.

“For so many years, my husband and I cried, prayed and dreamed of having a child. We both had so many breakdowns because we wanted one so much.

“After probably 1,000 negative pregnancy tests, it got to the point where I gave up wishing anymore.

“Last December, I put on weight; so I bought my billionth pregnancy test which my husband and I thought was just now a waste of money.

“I normally pray and hope while I wait, but this time, I lost all hope and didn’t bother. Then I saw it – it was positive. I hit the floor crying.”

Aged just 13, doctors had warned Krista that she could never have children. Then, two years ago, she learned she also had two vaginas as part of the condition.

She added: “It was a massive shock, especially for my husband! Doctors and I couldn’t see it because it was too far inside.

“Sex is extremely sensitive and can hurt – it affects my sex life and my self-confidence.”

She suffered two miscarriages as her and husband Courtney, 33, gave up hope of a child.

“However my husband and I joke around about it all the time.
“I actually got pregnant when I was 15 and 20, but I had miscarriages for both.
“When I met my husband at 20 years old, I told him I couldn’t have kids. So, the whole time I’ve been together with my husband, we didn’t use protection.”

Krista is now five months pregnant and expecting a baby boy, which is growing in her left womb.

Most women with uterine didelphys have to have C-section, but Krista is hopeful she might not need one.

She added: “Because of my two vaginas, the baby will have to come down the left side vagina.

“Doctors think I’ll have to have a C-section, but I’m dreaming of a natural water birth.

“It’s incredible because doctors still don’t understand it. The fact that I’m pregnant on the left side and it’s impossible for the egg to get there.

“I am scared that he will get stuck, one vagina is much smaller, if they were both one vagina it’d be a normal size.

“Ten years of trying to have a baby, it just happened. I want women with uterine didelphys to never let anyone tell them miracles can’t happen, because they do.”

Dr. Nick Raine-Fenning, spokesperson for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists said: “The uterus forms in-utero by the fusion of two tubes, which are called the Mullerian ducts.”

Investment / Bill Gates Reveals What He Would Do If He Lived On $2 A Day by icnsystem(m): 3:52pm On Jun 09, 2016
Let's say Bill Gates didn't wake up each morning with a net worth of more than $76 billion.

Let's say he had just $2. What would the founder of Microsoft do then?

"Just about anyone who's living in extreme poverty is better off if they have chickens," Gates wrote in a recent Gates Notes blog post.

That's right. He'd raise chickens.

By Gates' calculations, the animals cost just $5 in most West African countries. So by spending $2 a day, he could feasibly assemble a flock of 12 chickens in about a month (if he devoted all his money to that goal). Several months later, he'd have dozens of chicks to raise into full-grown money-making machines — and that would put him above the poverty line by a wide margin.

Gates wants to help families in need do just that. In the blog post, he points to his recent partnership with Heifer International, a charity that donates livestock in an effort to combat poverty around the world.

"Our foundation is betting on chickens," Gates writes. "Our goal: to eventually help 30 percent of the rural families in sub-Saharan Africa raise improved breeds of vaccinated chickens, up from just 5 percent now."

The birds offer a cheap and easy way for poor families to dramatically increase their income, since they can sell, trade, or eat the meat, or use live chickens as currency to pay for tools or services.

"These chickens are multiplying on an ongoing basis, so there's no investment that has a return percentage anything like being able to breed chickens," Gates told reporters at a recent event about the partnership, which is called Coop Dreams.

He references the old parable of teaching a man to fish rather than just giving him one. "The parable could've been stated in terms of giving somebody a chicken," Gates says.

As long as farmers keep their chickens healthy — vaccines for the deadly Newcastle disease cost just 20 cents, Gates points out — they can use the revenue to finance purchases of larger livestock, such as cows or goats.

Like chickens, these animals offer year-round yields. Instead of waiting on crops to come back into season, farmers can use eggs, milk, and meat as steady streams of income — not to mention nutrition. If someone like Gates were raising a family on a very low income, he explains, chickens could provide cognitive benefits to children whose brains are still developing.

"Malnutrition kills more than 3.1 million children a year," he writes. "If a farmer's flock is big enough to give her extra eggs, or if she ends up with a few broken ones, she may decide to cook them for her family."

So while $2 might not sound like much, the right entrepreneurial spirit and training could turn a few chickens into a real shot at self-sufficiency.

Religion / Pastor Fails To Resurrect After Telling People To Bury Him Alive by icnsystem(m): 9:08pm On Apr 10, 2016
Five members of the same family were charged with the murder of a prophet who had been called to their their home in the village of Mazonde, Zimbabwe to help them cleanse their house of evil spirits.

According to local newspaper, Zed 24 News, the accused family identified as Leanmore Mutero, Tonderai Muswere, Michael Muchengeti, Manasa Mutero and Nicholas Mutero, appeared at the High Court in Harare facing a murder charge for participating in the death of self-professed Prophet Shamiso Kanyama, who accidentally died during a healing ceremony.

Pastor Kanyama had reportedly asked his followers to bury him alive so that he could summon more cleansing powers to heal the family that had been plagued by mysterious deaths.

Zed 24 News reports that High Court Justice Owen Tagu heard how on that day, the late pastor had been invited to attend the home in the Muzarabani district, which is situated along the Mozambique-Zimbabwe border, by their priest, Zvidzai Muchengeti.

The five men had requested the priest to help them clean their home of evil spirits, because it was causing mysterious deaths in their family.

Responding to their request to perform a healing ceremony, Kanyama had ordered his followers to dig a grave and bury him alive because that was the way he summoned more healing powers to ward off evil spirits. However, the plan backfired on the prophet when instead of being resurrected as he supposed, the men dug up the grave again to find him dead.

Kanyama helped to dig his own grave before praying and jumping inside, Father Zvidzai, who has turned State witness, told the High Court. He continued that after laying face down in the grave, he ordered his followers to start covering him with soil.

“He pegged a grave-shaped pit in front of my hut and asked for help to dig the pit,” Zvidzai continued. “Deceased requested to be buried alive so that he would gain power to drive away the evil forces.”

Fearing for the life of the prophet as the men were in the process of filling the grave, he requested the men to stop what they were doing, Joseph Taderera told Justice Tagu.

However, they ignored his pleas when Kanyama urged them to continue the process of burying him alive, stating that he would rise from the grave unharmed.

“I warned the men about the danger of their actions, but my advice fell on deaf ears because Kanyama shouted, telling me that I am disturbing his angels, and urged them to continue filling the grave, saying that he would later come out alive,” Taderera said.

It beats me hallow to hear you say you attended the best school in the world.Hell No!!!,that should be a pseudo-Best school in your demented mind.Because your first reaction to this post gives you out as a tout or political thug trying to defend an irrational posit.That you're not even coherent is minus on your profile which means your father laboured in vain because you went to mushroom school.But, in your reckoning, it's was school at least you can write your father's name and that's where your pseudo-best school in the world ends.So joining issues with you about public probity,accountability and function of state institutions is far far beyond your capacity and level.Nevertheless,one of the bane of Nigeria's underdevelopment and backwardness is the emergence of ignoramus of your type who pride themselves as graduate with useless A4 Paper as certificate but in real sense are liability to the society because you are anthropologically too poor to discern the concept of time on how an ideal society can be modelled..Best School in world my foot.Say that to pigs in the piggery..Nonsense
well thanks for the insult but i actually stay in maitama whenever im in abuja and im aware of the house for sale. I went to one of the best schools in d world that taught me not to argue with sm1 who has nothing to lose cuz I will come down to their level. Have a nice evening.

Must crime be committed before Tax officer,EFCC or police man knocks on your door? illiterates and demented minds can never grasp the concept of an ideal society and its evolution.or how state institutions intervene to prevent citizens from existing in free state of nature.That a citizens calls for public discourse on issues bothering on public probity and accountability is a plus for this forum and public enlightenment.So before you reply to public discourse,read very "WELL"with a standard dictionary in one hand because obviously you are not well schooled in the art of reading and assimilating basic write-up.Maybe your level of exposure doesn't exceeds the confine of your God forsaking village where your demented father cannot even afford to send to you to standard school..Boring Ashole

Education / Professor Wins $700k For Solving 300-year-old Math Equation by icnsystem(m): 9:51pm On Mar 16, 2016
(CNN)It was a problem that had baffled mathematicians for centuries -- until British professor Andrew Wiles set his mind to it.

"There are no whole number solutions to the equation xn + yn = zn when n is greater than 2."

Otherwise known as "Fermat's Last Theorem," this equation was first posed by French mathematician Pierre de Fermat in 1637, and had stumped the world's brightest minds for over 300 years.
Professor Andrew Wiles in front of a version of Fermat's Theorem.

In the 1990s, Oxford professor Andrew Wiles finally solved the problem, and this week was awarded the hugely prestigious 2016 Abel Prize -- including a $700,000 windfall.

The prize, often described as the Nobel of mathematics, was awarded by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, with an official ceremony featuring Crown Prince Haakon of Norway to take place in May.

"Wiles is one of very few mathematicians -- if not the only one -- whose proof of a theorem has made international headline news," said the Abel Committee.

"In 1994 he cracked Fermat's Last Theorem, which at the time was the most famous, and long-running, unsolved problem in the subject's history."
Wiles, 62, first became fascinated with the theorem as a 10 year old growing up in Cambridge, England, after finding a copy of Fermat's Last Theorem at his local library.

"I knew from that moment that I would never let it go," he said. "I had to solve it."

He spent seven years intensively working on the equation in secret while at Princeton University, finally cracking it in 1994 by combining the three complex mathematical fields of modular forms, elliptic curves, and Galois representations.

"I was very lucky that not only did I solve the problem, but I opened the door for a whole new era in my field," said Wiles.

"Problems that had previously seemed inaccessible, now became open."

"You never forget the moment you have these great breakthroughs -- it's what you live for," he added.
Travel / World's Best & Worst Passport Revealed by icnsystem(m): 11:05pm On Mar 01, 2016
(CNN)When it comes to crossing international frontiers, there's one travel document that opens more doors than any other.

And it isn't a U.S. passport.

German citizens, it seems, have the potential for the greatest mobility in the travel world.With a German passport, travellers can enter 177 out of 218 countries and territories without a visa, according to the 2016 Visa Restrictions Index.

The list, compiled annually since 2006 by London-based consulting firm Henley and Partners and the International Air Transport Association, ranks nations by how freely their citizens, unencumbered by immigration red tape, can explore the planet.

This year, it shows that citizenship of a superpower doesn't carry the clout it once did.

The United States, which ranked first in 2014 and 2015, has now dropped to fourth place.

Immediately behind Germany, holding its position as runner-up for the second year running, is Sweden with visa-free access to 176 countries.

Finland, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom -- which had topped the list since 2013 -- are now tied for third place, making Northern and Western European citizens the most privileged in international travel.

Japan and South Korea were also among the group in the top three in 2014 and 2015, but have slid down to fifth and sixth place respectively this year.

Belgium, Denmark and Netherlands stand alongside the U.S. in fourth.

At the bottom of the list, labelled countries with the "worst passports," are Afghanistan, at 104, followed by Pakistan, Iraq, Somalia, and Syria.

Nairaland / General / 70-year-old Pastor Commits Suicide In Ogun by icnsystem(m): 8:18am On Aug 24, 2015
A pastor, Olufade Folayinmi, has reportedly committed suicide on Owakurudu Road, in the Ijebu Ode area of Ogun State.

It was learnt that 70-year-old Folayinmi was found hanging with a rope around his neck, dangling from a ceiling fan in his apartment last Monday.

Our correspondent gathered that some church members found the pastor at about 2pm and alerted policemen from the Igbeba division.

A source in the area said the pastor did not leave any suicide note.

She said, “It was a shocking discovery. The pastor was found hanging to the ceiling fan. Nobody knew why he took that action.

“The family and church members still rushed him to a nearby hospital, but the doctors confirmed him dead.”

The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed the incident. He added that the corpse had been released to the family after a post mortem.

He said, “The pastor was found hanging to the ceiling. The corpse has been released to the family after a post mortem. The case was handled by the policemen from Igbeba.”

The definations and degrees of civilization vary according to perception,cultural values and environment.What we call western civilization and admire are just ways of life in their clime and it should not be adopted as parameters to conclude that Africans are backward.No no no..!it's not true.That is one fallacy Africans should reject outrightly.
The pictures here are just too perfect becuase they represent the natural way of life of these people back then,when practically the way of life was very close to nature,when farming was 100% organic and there were no chemical in foods which causes cancer and other diseases that are prevalent today.
Further more,Anthropologist and other reseachers in the fields of humanity have even come to conclusion that people of this time has higher quality of life than we the so called civilized people..Hence, these pictures are just too perfect and should be celebrated because they are reflection of our heritage,culture and civilazion as people who are very very very close to nature.
Therefore,King Jaja of Opobo and his wives in these pictures are symbol of our civilization.There is absolutely nothing wrong with this picture.


Crime / Photo:border Guards Find Eight-year-old In Suitcase by icnsystem(m): 8:55am On May 11, 2015
A man from the Ivory Coast who allegedly attempted to smuggle his eight-year-old son into Europe inside a suitcase has been detained by a Spanish court.

Border guards stopped a 19-year-old Moroccan woman as she waited in line at a crossing in Ceuta, North Africa, on Thursday.

The woman was described as "nervous" and "indecisive" by the Guardia Civil and when the guards put her suitcase through a scanner they spotted the boy curled up inside.

Alfonso Cruzado, a spokesman for the Guardia Civil in Ceuta, told El Mundo newspaper: "I have been doing this for a long time and I have never seen such a grotesque and dramatic attempt to enter the country by a child.

"The scanner operators could never imagine that inside the suitcase there was a child."

The boy was disoriented and terrified, guards said. He told them his name was Adou was from the Ivory Coast.

Border officers detained the woman and the boy's father half an hour later after he arrived at the crossing with a permit to live in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria.

He was held on suspicion of human trafficking offences and is believed to have paid for his son to cross the border because he did not have the required documents.

The man was held without bail after appearing at the Superior Court of Andalusia on Friday.

Red Cross officials checked the boy but he was found to have been unhurt by the ordeal.

Spanish border officials deal with a number of migrants attempting to get from North Africa into Europe every year.

Many smuggle themselves on to ferries heading for Spain and then jump off close to the shore to avoid immigration barriers.


Nairaland / General / Inside The World Of Luxury Private Jets by icnsystem(m): 7:53am On May 06, 2015
When the rich and the famous travel by air, they often pay to sit in the business/first class for the best comfort the jet can offer. Others pay less for the economy class. But some members of that upper class are now going for private jets to enjoy a higher level of privacy in the airplane.
It costs pretty much to travel in a private jet but the comfort is worth the cost, according to designers of these luxury aircraft.
An online travel news magazine, Daily Mail, says the super-rich splash about $90m on such luxury interiors. The exterior may look ordinary but the interior screams luxury with gold details. Casino suites, marble bathrooms and aquariums are some of the special features of modern private jets. “Our clients want us to dream, push the limits, and to be creative so that we can create for them a spectacular jet interior, says the Creative Director and Head of AirJet Designs, Jean-Pierre Alfano.

To customise a private jet

As in other luxury materials, people pay more to get their private jets customised. Alfano says the cost of a BBJ 1 aircraft is around $60m. The cost to fit out the interior will then be in the range of between $30m and $50m.
The Director of Engineering, Cumlux America, a luxury jet maker, Daron Dryer, says the innovation is driven by the passenger’s desire to have an on board experience similar to their life on the ground.
“Business jets have to incorporate new features and facilities in order to allow the passengers to keep their own way of living: Eating and cooking, body care, sport, entertainment, latest technology,” he says.
He estimates that narrow-bodied planes can cost between $25m and $35m to customise, while wide-bodied aircraft – such as 757s and A380s – can cost around $90m just for the interiors.
This possible explains the public outcry that greeted the report sometime last year about some religious leaders in Nigeria acquiring private jets.

Before then, a number of influential Nigerians including top business moguls such Alhaji Aliko Dangote, current and former governors had been listed among owners of the most expensive private jets in the country. some of them are Alhaji Dangote, (Bombardier Global Express); Chief Mike Adenuga, (Falcon 7X, Bombardier 604); Governor Rotimi Ameachi of Rivers State (Bombardier Global 6000); Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State (Gulfstream V); Pastor Enoch Adeboye (Gulfstream V); Mrs. Folorunsho Alakija, (Bombardier jet) and Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor (Bombardier Challenger 604).
Globally, a Saudi Arabian Prince, Alwaleed bin Talal al-Saud, famous for his stable of private jets, arguably tops the list of people with the most expensive luxury jets with its modified Boeing 747, an Airbus 321 and an Airbus A380 – which normally seats 800 passengers but has been completely customised to his needs.
According to Daily Mail, Alwaleed’s A380 is said to have a marble-finished Turkish bath, a garage for his Rolls-Royce and even a dedicated prayer area, in which computer-generated mats move to point towards Mecca.
Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich’s Boeing 767-300 can seat up to 350, but as a private jet it can include exceptional high spec VIP luxury interiors, with options such as 30-seat dining room; boardroom, master bedrooms, luxury bathrooms with showers; and spacious living room, says the Chief Executive Officer, PrivateFly, Adam Twidell.
Donald Trump’s $95m Boeing 757 is luxury personifed, complete with a double bed, spacious lounge with sofas, gold accents and even a marble bathroom.
Brabus Private Aviation says on its website, “Our customers decide on many variables, for example how many passengers will be flying on board frequently. Subsequently, this leads to the amount of seats available, which is the basis for the allocation of the entire space in the cabin.”
According to Alfano, there are new developments to make flying on a private jet even more comfortable for wealthy clients. Some of them are new technologies being introduced such as good sound insulation to reduce noise, especially in the sleeping area; clients want a fully equipped aircraft galley that will allow flight attendants to cook gourmet meals. Additionally, galley areas are receiving more design attention so that they are as beautiful to look at as they are functional.
Showers in private jets have become a must-have item for aircraft that are of sufficient size. Having a shower on your aircraft is a great convenience for busy executives. Also, features usually seen in high-end hotels such as heated bathroom floors are becoming more popular.
Alfano says, “The design is extremely important to clients now; they want to go beyond the overused beige or grey colour schemes typically used in business aircraft. They want to travel in stylish surroundings. They want the feeling of spaciousness, therefore, they are opting for a more open cabin design; they do not want a cramp feeling aircraft. They want a beautifully designed cabin that suits their taste and design preferences. Many clients use their aircraft for doing business, so the jet needs to reflect who they are and the image they wish to project to the world. Our clients use their private jets to increase productivity but also to entertain.
“In private aircraft, a lot of attention is given to the design of the aircraft seats. We carefully consider the style, trim and materials. Also, in our chair design process we always involve the owners and we create a prototype before the end product is finished to ensure it is tailor-made to the liking and contours of the owner.”


Politics / Hate Campaign:buhari Bars AIT From Covering Activities by icnsystem(m): 5:56am On Apr 28, 2015
…We’re sorting out professional, ethnical issues with them—Media Aide
By Levinus Nwabughiogu
ABUJA—President-elect, General Mohammadu Buhari may have just started a revenge mission on the African Independent Television, AIT when, yesterday, the security men attached to him barred the station’s correspondent, Tinabeso Bebei from covering Buhari’s functions.
Vanguard gathered that the directive was discreetly given to the correspondent by an official at the Defence House where the crew had gone to cover the visit of Cuban ambassador to Buhari.
It was learned that Buhari’s family had raised security issues which prompted the ban.
Confirming the issue, Buhari’s media aide, Mallam Garba Shehu said that such warning was given and may be revoked when some security and ethical issues were resolved with the station.
He said: “AIT has been asked to stay aside based on security and family concerns. In addition, Buhari has decided that they will have to resolve some issues relating to issues of standard and ethics.
“We will be talking with them to try and resolve the matter, but for now the station has been asked to stay aside, because like I said there are some family and security concerns. They have been asked to step down their coverage until we resolve the matter with them on ethics and standards.”
When asked whether he should be quoted, Shehu said, “yes you can quote me that I said we have asked them to step aside and that we are resolving the issues of ethics and standards with them.”
He, however, stated that the Nigerian Television Authority, NTA, was not involved in the ban, saying the crew was at liberty to attend any official engagements of the President-elect.
Meanwhile, there were feelings that Buhari’s ban of AIT came against the background of the hate documentaries and campaign messages played on the station’s network during the polls.
Sports / Manchester United Fan Commits Suicide After Quarter-final Loss Against Arsenal by icnsystem(m): 3:54pm On Mar 14, 2015
Manchester United 1-2 Arsenal

A 42-year-old man from Kenya reportedly jumped into the Indian Ocean from the Kilifi Bridge in Kilifi County, Kenya.

A Manchester United supporter committed suicide after the Red Devils' 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Arsenal.

According to Yahoo News, the man was bragging about how Louis van Gaal's side would humilate Arsenal in the cup clash, but goals from Nacho Monreal and former United player Danny Welbeck sealed the Gunners' passage to the semi-finals at Wembley.

Money, credit cards and identification were all recovered from his wallet after his body was found, with the Mombasa government tweeting an image of the man's body on Friday morning.


Suicides have become particular prevalent in football hotspots of Africa over the past few years.

In 2009 an Arsenal fan hanged himself after his team lost 3-1 to Manchester United in the Champions League semi-final while in December 2013 another Kenyan jumped from the seventh floor of a building after learning that Manchester Unied had lost to Newcastle United that same day.
