|Travel / 2 Dead, More Than 1,000 Rescued From High Waters In Louisiana Flooding (photos) by erayo2GCA(m): 9:28pm On Aug 13, 2016|
At least two people have died and over a thousand have been rescued from severe flooding across central and southern Louisiana that has led the governor to declare a state of emergency, officials said.
An elderly man drowned after slipping and falling in high waters amid heavy rain in East Baton Rouge Parish. And in St. Helena Parish, a man died when his pickup truck was swept off a flooded highway and submerged under water, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said at a news conference Saturday.
Crews are working to rescue another person although they expect this person may have also died in the disaster, according to St. Helena Parish Sheriff's Office chief of operations Michael Martin.
In St. Helena Parish, about 210 people have been rescued from flooding so far, and three people in the community are believed to be missing, Martin said.
In Livingston Parish, which saw more than 17 inches of rain on Friday alone, officials said over a thousand people have been rescued from flooding so far as of Saturday morning, and they’re working to save another 150 in the Watson area. The Louisiana National Guard is sending a helicopter to assist with rescues in the drenched community.
In East Baton Rouge Parish, officials said more than 200 people have been rescued from flooding and 42 roads have been closed. The parish seat, Baton Rouge, had over 8 inches of rain on Friday, its wettest day on record.
The flooding this week also closed many schools in the Baton Rouge area, including Louisiana State University. see more photos
|Culture / The Last King Of Africa. Oba Ovonramwen Nogbaisi. 1888A.D-1914A.D by erayo2GCA(m): 1:13am On Aug 13, 2016|
Prince Idugbowa was the eldest son of Oba Adolo and his mother was called queen Iheya. During his coronation he took the name Oba ovonramwen Nogbaisi in 1888. He was tall, stout and light in complexion with his majestic voice. He was blessed with six children [princes]Aiguobasimwin , Usuanlele, Ehigie and Uvbi [princesses] Evbakhavbokun, Omono, Orimwiame.
After his installation to the throne, he had some chiefs [Eribo, Obazele, Osia, Obaraye and others] who opposed his ascension killed.
At the early stage of his reign, the Europeans visited Benin-city, Blessby, Bey and Farquahar.
That same year the Odundun, the Deji [Udezi] of Akure acquired swords for himself without the consent of the Oba Of Benin. And when the Oba learnt of this in early 1889, he then sent Okpele to take the swords from Deji. After much threat Deji surrendered the swords to Okpele and he then took them to Beni-city. Odundun sent a lot of presents to the Oba, but the Oba refused to accept his presents.
That same year  the Oba gave his daughter’s [ princess Evbakhavbokun] hand in marriage to Ologboshere.
Early 1890, the Oracle of Oghene of Uhe [Oni of Ife] warned Oba Ovonramwen to be cautious that he perceived calamity was going to befall the city.
May 1891, during the royal coral beads ceremony, a human sacrifice was offered to the gods, his name was Thompson Oyibodudu. During his execution he shouted saying ‘the white men that are greater than us are coming shortly to fight and conquered you and I, but do it quickly’. This manifested in the punitive expedition of 1897.
In 1892, chief Nana of Benin River, stopped all trade between the Benin and the Itsekiri’s and he also prohibited the supply of cooking salt. After a while the issue was resolved and trade commenced. Chief Nana continued to pay homage to the Oba.
Early 1896 the Oba stopped trading with the Itsekiri’s , because he felt the Benin were been cheated. After many negotiations, the Oba requested for twenty thousand iron sheets from their chiefs before he can allow trade to commence. He had gotten some Iron sheets and brass from Mr Cyril Punch and other Europeans in 1891/1892 which he had used in roofing the palace halfway but he needed more to complete it, hence his request from the chiefs.
In 1895 the Enogie of Ekpoma, in Ishan kingdom died and the people rebelled because they felt the Oba had ignored them and they needed a new leader so the Oba sent massagers over there, commanding them to install the eldest son of the late Enogie.
That same year, the Oba built a war camp [Eko] at Obadan village. He recruited ten thousand men to be trained, so they could be used in Agbor and other campaigns which he proposed to undertake.
The Europeans sent Gen. Mr Philip and eight others to induce
Chief Ologboshere was accused alongside others as the masterminded of the massacre of Philip and his party was trial and hanged. And Oba Ovonranmwen was dethroned and deported to Calabar where he lived and died. This event is referred to as the Benin massacre.
Oba Ovoranmwen was not a bad king, because of the war that occurred in his time; the trial showed that he was innocent of the massacre of Phillip’s party. He was unfortunate to have those advisers at that moment and it was his refusal to appeal before the final court judgement that causes him to be deported and deprived of his crown. He is still worth celebrating like other great Oba’s. His eldest son [prince Aiguobasimwin] succceded him and became Oba Eweka ii

|Crime / Franca Asemota Jailed For 22 Years For Trafficking Nigerian Girls For Sex Trade by erayo2GCA(m): 2:47am On Aug 05, 2016|
LONDON - A female trafficking boss was sentenced to 22 years in prison on Thursday for using the threat of witchcraft to exert control over almost 40 women and girls brought from Nigeria to Europe for sex work, a British court prosecutor said.
Franca Asemota, 38, was found guilty of conspiracy to traffic persons for sexual exploitation, trafficking persons outside of the UK for sexual exploitation, and assisting unlawful migration.
Isleworth Crown Court in west London heard that Asemota was part of a criminal network that trafficked girls, boys and women to Europe, using the threat of "juju magic" and rituals with curses to exert control over her victims.
Prosecutor David Davies said Asemota targeted girls from poor, rural backgrounds with little knowledge of the world, promising them legitimate jobs in Europe between August 2011 and May 2012.
"Only when they were far away from their homes were they told the truth – that they would have to work as prostitutes," Davies said in a statement.
"The girls were told that if they disobeyed their captors or tried to escape, the curse would cause them injury, infertility or even death."
Prosecutions for human trafficking in England and Wales have increased since the introduction of a new anti-slavery law last year, with about 180 people prosecuted between April and December 2015, which prosecutors said was a new record.
The Modern Slavery Act - which came into force in July - increased maximum jail terms for traffickers to life and brought in measures to protect people believed to be at risk of enslavement.
Studies show there are an estimated 13,000 victims of forced labor, sexual exploitation and domestic servitude in Britain.
Globally an estimated 45.8 million people are born into servitude, trafficked for sex work, or trapped in debt bondage or forced labor, according to the 2016 Global Slavery Index by human rights group Walk Free Foundation.
Forced labor generates an estimated $150 billion in illegal profits every year, according to the United Nation's International Labour Organization (ILO).
|Foreign Affairs / Egypt 'kills Head Of Islamic State's Sinai Branch' by erayo2GCA(m): 10:16pm On Aug 04, 2016|
The Egyptian military says it has killed the head of the Sinai branch of so-called Islamic State (IS), along with dozens of its fighters.
It said Abu Duaa al-Ansari was killed in a series of air strikes on fighters of the Sinai Province - or Ansar Beit al-Maqdis - group.
The air strikes targeted jihadist strongholds near the town of El-Arish.
Sinai Province is Egypt's most active insurgent group and has been linked to deadly attacks in Sinai and Cairo.
The Egyptian military said: "The raids left more than 45 terrorists killed, dozens of others injured and several arms caches destroyed."
Brig-Gen Mohammed Samir said in a posting on Facebook that Ansari was killed in an operation guided by "accurate intelligence".
Sinai, including here in El-Arish, has seen multiple Islamist attacks in recent years
The air strikes were on southern and south-western areas of El-Arish, the largest town in northern Sinai.
The jihadist group, which has been active in the Sinai peninsula since 2011, has not commented on the army's statement.
Islamist militancy has risen in Egypt since the army deposed President Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013.
Sinai Province: Egypt's most dangerous insurgents
Originally called Ansar Beit al-Maqdis (Supporters of Jerusalem), but changed its name after it pledged allegiance to so-called Islamic State in November 2014 Began with rocket attacks on Israel but refocused on targeting Egyptian security forces after the removal of President Morsi
Its aim is thought to be to take control of the Sinai peninsula to turn it into an Islamist province
Deadliest attacks include killing of 33 security personnel in North Sinai in October 2014
The number of active members is believed to be between 1,000 and 1,500
Believed to have cells in Cairo, Giza and the Western Desert
A recent survey conducted by London-based Al-Araby al-Jadid news website said the group had carried out more than 31 attacks in various areas across Sinai within just a two-week period in March 2016.
The group is also a prolific producer of propaganda videos.
On Wednesday, a video said to be from the IS Sinai affiliate issued a rare direct threat to Israel, saying it would soon "pay a high price".
