Thugs Burn Ogun Monarch, Three Sons To Death After Palace Invasion
The Olu of Agodo in Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State, Oba Joseph Ayinde Odetola, has been reportedly murdered by some hoodlums, who invaded the town.
Oba Odetola was said to have been murdered alongside three of his sons.
It was gathered that the deceased called a meeting to settle a protracted feud over land allocations in the community.

Shortly after the meeting got underway, some irate youth invaded the palace, burning the traditional ruler and his three sons to death.

Spokesperson for the police in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident, adding that a manhunt had been launched to apprehend the suspects.

Nairaland / General / Nigeria Ranks 154 Globally In Corruption Rating, Drops Five Places by Haywhyho7: 1:24pm
Transparency International’s new corruption perception index (CPI) ranks Nigeria 154 out of 180 countries sampled methodically.
The organization, in its latest report released on Tuesday in Abuja, said that Nigeria dropped five places downward compared to the 2020 CPI results.

The report showed that Nigeria scored 24 out of 100 points in the 2021 CPI, falling back one point compared to the 2020 CPI.

Country Representative of TI, Auwal Musa Rafsanjani blamed the decline on corruption in the public sector.

Transparency International has released the 2021 corruption perception index globally, placing Nigeria 154 out of 180 countries studied methodologically.

Rafsanjani, who is also the Executive Director of the Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC), said that corruption in Nigeria has greatly contributed to the nation’s underdevelopment.

The TI rep noted despite successive governments claiming to fight corruption, job opportunities, driving license acquisition, passport applications among others, were still frost with corrupt tendencies, especially as officials in charge of these basic services expect some form of kickbacks while rendering such duties.

He claimed that corruption was responsible for rising insecurity, high unemployment rate, systemic failure in healthcare delivery, and leadership dysfunctions.

The TI Rep said: “The CPI aggregates data from eight different sources that provide perceptions by country experts and business people on the level of corruption in the public sector.

Think about how good this LEGO Fiat 500 would look on your desktop

If you are one of those who like popular classic car designs and appreciate riding things with your own hands, then this LEGO Creator Expert model that has taken the iconic Fiat 500 as inspiration could be for you, whether you are a young enthusiast or a nostalgic old man. And although it is mostly made of plastic bricks, it stands out as a mid-60s model (a 1965 500F).

The 960-piece kit is 11 centimeters high, 24 cm long and 11 cm wide, which means it will take up significant space on your desk. LEGO recreated the proportions of the 500 with great precision, and its designers included details such as the round headlights, the chrome emblem on the front, the plate-shaped hubcaps and the ventilated rear bonnet. It’s not as realistic as a die-cast model, but it’s recognizable as a 500.

Religion / Re: Confusion! Is God A Mystery Or Trinity Is False Doctrine?? by Steep(m): 12:53pm
Nobody555:
See YHWH is one God, one person. Nobody knew Jesus untill he came to the world. He's a God, a mighty one but he's definitely not the one true GOD, the Almighty. His coming to the word to die and give us eternal life was all according to God's will.
God appointed and gave him authority, power, an excellent name and the kingdom to carry out his missions. When the will of God for earth has been completely done, Jesus will hand over the kingdom back to the Father and become subjected to Jehovah's rulership. Jehovah will be all in all.
Hebrews 1:4-5,9. 1 Corinthians 15:24-28. John 5:26. Mathew 28:18.
smiley smiley smiley

So you mean Jesus is a God? Which means you believe Jehovah was lying when he said there was no God with him, when infact John state that Jesus was with God .

Deuteronomy 32:39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Jehovah witness organization insults Jehovah calling him a liar, when Jehovah said there was no god with him they wanna prove to him Jesus is a god that was with him that even help him in creation.

Religion / About 99% Christians May Not Make Heaven by FreshGreen: 12:37pm
ABOUT 99% CHRISTIANS MAY NOT MAKE HEAVEN
If you hear me saying 99% committed Christians in this generation may not make heaven, you may ask me if I have seen a revelation or vision of heaven. No, it's not a vision that reveals that to me but a practical reality. For example, in Africa, about 99% committed, serious, matured, fireful “Christians” are not faithful with money, as in, money alone will disqualify about 99% Christians in Africa from making heaven. By the grace of God, I am a businessman, and I can tell you categorically that when it comes to faithfulness with money, uncompromised in giving or taking bribes, if God should only use financial integrity to screen Christians for heaven, about 99% African Christians will not make heaven.

I have engaged in small business activities in different countries in Africa and my primary target of people to engage with were not just Christians but matured, sanctified Christians. In Nigeria, I sought to employ matured Christians, pastors and church’s leaders were my managers. At one point, I had more than 40 staff and workers from different churches – RCCG, Deeper Life, Orthodox churches and others working with me; the majority of them were faithful with time but not with money. When money increases in care of an African Christian without proper monitoring, it means you want to deliberately send that Christian to hell.

How many Christians are living on their salaries without engaging in extra-official means of getting money or without collecting bribes in public or private offices in Africa? How many Christians can stand in the business world without giving bribes or are we saying bribery is no more a sin? In my businesses, I know how it is in Africa when you want to collect licenses from Government, when you want to import, when you are into transport business and deal with officers on the road; when it comes to standing without compromise or giving bribes.

I remember some years back my staff was driving from Ondo state to Abuja and he was stopped on the road by Police to check the vehicle’s papers. And then it was discovered there was an error in the chassis numbers, the VIO office that issued the paper made a mistake on the numbers typed in the vehicle’s paper and the vehicle was taken to the Police station. My staff called to tell me about the situation and I called to VIO officer in Abuja, he admitted the mistake was from them and he spoke with the Police on the road, but the Police officers said they would not accept such that my staff would have to park the car with them and take the papers to Abuja for correction and then come back to take the car after correction. It was already getting late, so I told my staff he would need to lodge in a hotel around there, and join public transport to Abuja the following morning; make the correction at VIO office and go back to get the vehicle with all the materials inside, before God intervened. It is better to go through such stress than to think of settling in an ungodly way if you truly care for heaven.

Now let me tell you, the way about 99% Christians Africa will be disqualified from making heaven on the ground of financial unfaithfulness, so also about 99% Christians in Western world will be disqualified from making heaven on the ground of indecent dress. You may wonder, “How possibly all the devoted Christian women in Europe and America who wear indecent dresses, tight trousers, shorts, leggings, tinny tops, using makeups, fixing nails and others, with all their devotions in praises and worship, will God disqualify them from entering heaven?” The same way an American Christian will ask, “Will God disqualify all African Christians from making heaven because of their unfaithfulness with money, with all their fireful fasting and prayer?” The Bible answer to both questions is Yes! Someone asked Jesus, “Then one said to Him, “Lord, are there few who are saved?” And He said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.” Luke 13:23,24.

Listen, there are millions of millions of people already in heaven, so if no one qualifies for heaven in this generation, heaven will still be heaven and God will still be God. God will not change His holy standard because of this polluted and unfaithful generation. But the truth is, if those who are in heaven could make it, we too can make it if we are ready to surrender all to Jesus, if we are ready to see heaven as the most important and we are ready to sacrifice everything for it. If Jesus could help those who made it, He will help us also. But we need to help ourselves to trust Him, obey Him and follow Him. Do not copy or compare your life with other Christians or pastors, look only unto Jesus for perfection and always ask Him to help you.

1. Absolutely not! Either you believe God or you believe men....God never said the reason He went down to rescue Paul and Silas from prison was because they sang songs,did He? undecided

2. So you are saying that Jesus Christ lied when He instead declared that all you need to do is obey God for God to answer you? undecided

3. But Jesus Christ, the one who is the Will of God aka God's New Covenant Law in the Kingdom of God said instead that He does not desire praise from Humans - John 5 vs 41. He also declared that those who love Him are those who obey His commandments - John 14 vs 15 - 25. So is Jesus Christ a liar? undecided

4. We are not called to become angels but instead Sons of God and this through submission and obedience of the Truth of God, Jesus Christ. undecided

5. I don't bow to the doctrines and traditions of men(and their churches) as they are all lies that drive people far away from the Truth of God as Jesus Christ stated in Matthew 15 vs 1 - 14 and Mark 7 vs 1 - 13. undecided
Celebrities / Court Clears De General Of Drug Trafficking Charges by Haywhyho7: 12:33pm
A Federal High Court in Lagos has cleared comedian Joshua Sunday a.k.a. De General of drug trafficking charges.

The social media influencer was arraigned by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) alongside Caleb William, a cinematographer on Monday, January 24, 2022, before Justice Daniel Osiagor.

During the hearing, the Judge noted that the volume of substance was minimal for which he would not convict but caution the defendants.

The prosecutor had told the court that the offenses committed by the convicts are contrary to and punishable under section 11 (c) of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency ACT CAP N30 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

The prosecutor further urged the court to sentence the two men as prescribed by section 356(2) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA) 2015, having pleaded guilty to the charge.

But Justice Osiagor declined to sentence the convicts.

He cautioned them ‘to go and sin no more’.

Did God declare that He was honored by their singing of songs to Him or something? I don't understand where you are going with this given what I have revealed on God's Law to us.. undecided

3. See, this is why when you read,you first need comprehend what is being said before responding. undecided

I said God never commanded the singing of songs of praise or hymns or even music and so all of your singing does not honor God. What instead honors God is Obedience of His actual teachings and commandments to you in Jesus Christ. And Jesus Christ said boldly that He does not desire praise from Humans - John 5 vs 41. undecided

Sports / Exclusive: 2022 World Cup Playoff: Forget AFCON Ouster, Focus More On Ghana Clas by solbase10(m): 12:13pm
After Nigeria’s ouster from the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, former Nigerian goalkeeper, Andrew Aikhoumogbe has urged the Super Eagles to focus on the upcoming 2022 World Cup playoff against Ghana.



Recall that the three-time AFCON champions were eliminated in the Round of 16 after losing 1-0 to Tunisia on Sunday.

In a chat with Completesports.com from his Cairo base in Egypt, Aikhoumogbe stated that the players should learn from their mistakes and focus more attention on how to qualify for World football showpiece.



“I felt a bit disappointed that the team lost to Tunisia in the Round of 16, a game I thought we should have won.

“However, we can no longer cry over spilled milk, but then, focus on the World Cup playoff against the Black Stars of Ghana, one of Nigeria’s arch rivals in football.

“AFCON is gone as far as I am concern and at this point the players must do everything to ensure that they qualify for the 2022 World Cup. That’s the only way they can appease Nigerians.”

Nigeria are seeking to qualify for the World Cup a seventh time and, since 1994, have missed only one of seven editions. The last of three appearances by Ghana was in 2014.



The matches will be played between March 24 and 29, 2022 with exact dates and kick-off times to be confirmed after CAF liaises with the involved football associations.

Politics / Transparency International: Nigeria's Corruption Rating Gets Worse by Islie: 12:12pm
Nigeria has dropped five places on the 2021 corruption perception index published by Transparency International (TI).

In the 2021 index released on Tuesday, the country scored 24 out of 100 points — ranking 154 out of 180 countries.

In the 2020 index, Nigeria had scored 25 out of 100 points, ranking 149 out of the 180 countries surveyed.

The development means that Nigeria dropped to 154 — five places down — out of the 180 countries surveyed, in comparison with the 2020 rating.

It also scored 25 out of 100 points — less than the 24 points obtained in the 2020 CPI.

This is the worst ranking the country has got under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

In 2015, Nigeria was ranked 136th; 136th in 2016; 148th in 2017; 144th in 2018; 146th in 2019, and 149th in 2020.

The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC), the Nigerian arm of Transparency International (TI), said the CPI aggregates data from eight different sources that provide perceptions by experts and business people on the level of corruption in the public sector.

CISLAC said the CPI result is coming when the country is battling rising nationwide insecurity, high unemployment and damning revelations around public finance management.

The organisation said the index does not show specific incidents of corruption in the country but the perception of corruption.

Investment / Elon Musk And Jeff Bezos Lose Billions As Tech Stocks, Crypto Suffer Steep Falls by BrandSpurNG: 11:41am
Tumbling tech stocks and cryptocurrencies have seen the fortunes of some of the world’s richest people take a hit over the past week.

Bloomberg reports that Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk lost $25.1bn, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos saw a $20bn drop in his fortune, Changpeng Zhao of Binance lost $17.7bn, and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is $10.4bn worse off.

It was the worst week for the stock market since the crash at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Big-name companies suffered, with Peloton falling below its IPO price and Netflix suffering its steepest drop in a decade. Stocks in chipmakers also struggled.

At Friday’s close, the tech-focused Nasdaq was down 7.6 per cent for the week, its biggest decline since March 2020. This is also the fourth successive weekly drop for the index, the longest decline in nine months.

The prospect of interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve is on the cards with a meeting planned for Tuesday and Wednesday of the coming week. Investors are hoping for more guidance on the central bank’s plan to raise rates.

Turbulence in the markets is expected to continue into the new week with a slew of major earnings reports due including Apple, Microsoft, IBM, Intel, and Tesla.

The value of cryptocurrencies also suffered this week, with bitcoin dropping to a six-month low as the value of other digital assets also suffered.

An already dramatic crash in the crypto markets became yet more drastic as hundreds of billions of dollars were lost by investors over the week.

Bitcoin has now fallen 16.8 per cent over the last week. Other cryptocurrencies have seen even more dramatic losses: ethereum is now down 25 per cent.

It was already the worst start of the year for bitcoin in history. After hitting a record high of almost $68,000 (£50,000) in November, it is now worth under $35,000.

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Mr Musk’s wealth dropped nine per cent, but he still leads the pack of the world’s wealthiest people by an enormous margin, with a total fortune of $243.4bn.

Mr Bezos trails at number two with wealth totalling $167.6bn. Immediately behind him is French luxury retail tycoon Bernard Arnault, with $167.5bn — poised to surpass the Amazon founder into second place as the only person in the top ten to not lose any net worth in the past week.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates is number four with $128.6bn and Google’s Larry Page rounds out the top five with $116.5bn.

Autos / Renault, Nissan To Triple Investment In Electric Vehicles by postbox: 11:37am
Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors plan to triple their investment to jointly develop electric vehicles, two people with knowledge of the plan told Reuters.

As established automakers face pressure from new competitors and an expected shift in demand toward EVs, the French-Japanese alliance is seeking to deepen cooperation.

The three are expected to announce on Thursday a plan to invest more than 20 billion euros ($23 billion) over the next five years on EV development, the sources said. By 2030, the alliance is expected to come up with more than 30 new EVs underpinned by five common platforms, they said.

That is in addition to 10 billion euros the group has already spent on electrification, said the two people with knowledge of the plan.
Spokespeople for Nissan, Renault and Mitsubishi did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Sunday.

The “Alliance to 2030” plan aims to show “intensified cooperation” among the automakers, highlighting a “shared vision on electrification and connected mobility,” one source said. The five common platforms are expected to cover 90 percent of EVs the companies are expected to develop and launch by 2030, the sources said.

5 common EV platforms
The three-firm alliance has developed and partly deployed four common EV platforms.

One, called CMF-EV underpins cars such as the Renault Megane E-Tech battery-electric compact car and the coming Nissan Ariya, and another supports affordable no-frills cars that include the Dacia Spring minicar and similar models from Nissan and its China market partner Dongfeng. The other two are platforms for micro minis, called “kei cars” in Japan, and light commercial vehicles.

By mid-decade, the alliance aims to deploy a fifth common platform for small EVs designed by Renault, the sources said.

Nissan has already decided to use this platform, called CMFB-EV, and other standardized components to electrify the Nissan Micra small car, while Renault is expected to come up with a similar EV car based on the same platform, the sources said. The Micra EV is projected to be released by the mid-2020s.

Renault plans to launch the full-electric Renault 5 small car by 2024 and has said it will build another small vehicle, likely a SUV, inspired by the classic Renault 4L.


Affordable EVs
The automakers hope to make compact EVs as affordable as gasoline-fuelled vehicles of similar size, the sources said.
The three companies are expected to use common batteries and other key components. The alliance plans to jointly invest in capacity to produce in France, Britain, China and Japan a total of 220 gigawatt-hours of battery capacity by 2030 under the plan, the sources said.

By standardizing and sharing batteries, the alliance expects to halve battery manufacturing costs, they said.

The alliance is also expected to share solid-state lithium-ion battery technology, which Nissan has been developing, they said.

The plan had been for the leaders of Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi to announce the 2030 plan last autumn at an event in Japan, but the announcement was postponed until this week because of a surge in COVID-19 in Japan, the sources said.

A disagreement between Nissan and Renault over the French firm’s proposals for a full-blown merger – tensions that burst into the open with the arrest of former alliance leader Carlos Ghosn in 2018 – corresponded with stalled efforts to collaborate on technology and vehicle development, people with knowledge of the matter have said.

The three automakers all have their own hybrid technologies with few shared key parts and systems. The limited cooperation in sourcing and development has raised concern within the group about the ability to achieve cost savings, one source said.
It was not immediately clear whether alliance leaders will discuss hybrids as part of their 2030 plan.

Nissan said in November it planned to spend some $18 billion over five years to accelerate vehicle electrification, launching 23 electrified vehicles — including gasoline-electric hybrids — by 2030, including 15 EVs. Half of Nissan’s vehicle mix will be electrified by 2030, including EVs and e-Power hybrids, the company said.

Renault has said its Renault brand will be 100 percent electric in Europe by 2030, but company officials told Reuters the target does not apply to markets outside Europe and the group’s other brands, such as Dacia.

Think about how good this LEGO Fiat 500 would look on your desktop

If you are one of those who like popular classic car designs and appreciate riding things with your own hands, then this LEGO Creator Expert model that has taken the iconic Fiat 500 as inspiration could be for you, whether you are a young enthusiast or a nostalgic old man. And although it is mostly made of plastic bricks, it stands out as a mid-60s model (a 1965 500F).

The 960-piece kit is 11 centimeters high, 24 cm long and 11 cm wide, which means it will take up significant space on your desk. LEGO recreated the proportions of the 500 with great precision, and its designers included details such as the round headlights, the chrome emblem on the front, the plate-shaped hubcaps and the ventilated rear bonnet. It’s not as realistic as a die-cast model, but it’s recognizable as a 500.
