How 11-Year-Old Boy Played Dead To Survive Syria Massacre

When the gunmen began to slaughter his family, 11-year-old Ali el-Sayed says he fell to the floor of his home, soaking his clothes with his brother’s blood to fool the killers into thinking he was already dead.
The Syrian boy tried to stop himself from trembling, even as the gunmen, with long beards and shaved heads, killed his parents and all four of his siblings, one by one.
The youngest to die was Ali’s brother, 6-year-old Nader. His small body bore two bullet holes — one in his head, another in his back.
“I put my brother’s blood all over me and acted like I was dead,” Ali told The Associated Press over Skype on Wednesday, his raspy voice steady and matter-of-fact, five days after the killing spree that left him both an orphan and an only child.
Ali, the 11-year-old, said his mother began weeping the moment about 11 gunmen entered the family home in the middle of the night after arriving in a military armored vehicle and a bus. The men led Ali’s father and oldest brother outside.
“My mother started screaming ‘Why did you take them? Why did you take them?’” Ali said.
Soon afterward, he said, the gunmen killed Ali’s entire family.

President Jonathan Consulted Widely Before Re-naming UNILAG After Abiola...National Universities Commission (NUC)

The Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUJ), Julius Okojie, on Thursday rose to the defence of
President Jonathan who had in his Democracy Day broadcast renamed the University which led to two days of protests by students of the institution, but the Federal Government said despite the protests, its decision is final on the matter.
The decision did not go down well with students of the university who took to the street for two consecutive days.
Mr. Okogie said contrary to the insinuation that the president did not consult before taking the decision, the president carried out proper consultations.
"Who told you there was no consultation? Can the President act alone?
Even in the matters of nine new universities, from the scratch I know the committee that worked on it.

"Jonathan is the most engaging President, he is very accessible, and I can tell you about that. That he didn't consult will not be the truth," he said.
When asked if the school authorities were consulted before the decision was taken, The NUC scribe insinuated that the school authorities did not need to be checked with.
"Is that the level of consultation? Who is the proprietor of federal institutions? It is the federal Government of course. It is not at that level he will consult but they have been told".

WARNING: Viewers Discresion Is Advised!
A third year Physics/Astronomy undergraduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Onyebuchi Okonkwo, was found dead early Thursday morning at an uncompleted building located beside the hockey pitch in the school.

He is believed to have committed suicide as his lifeless body was found dangling on a rope suspended from a height.

Some blocks suspected to have been used as stepping stones to facilitate the climb into the noose used for the suicide were found a few inches beneath the deceased legs. Close to the blocks was a purported suicide note that read, “The controversy is over”.
The reason the deceased student took his own life is yet unknown. His former roommates said Mr. Okonkwo, a prospective First Class graduate, who was also the Physics/Astronomy Class representative, left his accommodation in the hostel at about 2 a.m. to an unknown destination.
“When he left the room, we thought he was going to the classroom to read, but we were surprised to see his corpse dangling from the roof of the building this morning,” one of the roommates, who pleaded anonymity, told our reporter on the telephone.

How ACN And CPC Will Merge...El-Rufai

Nasir El-Rufai, former minister of the Federal Capital territory and a top ranking member of the opposition Congress for Political Change has divulged plans for his party to merge with another opposition party, Action Congress of Nigeria.
The move, if successful, will have the CPC, a northern grass root party, coalesce with the ACN, a south west party, and other opposition parties. 
All parties in the talks are largely driven by the opposition parties’ common disdain for the ruling Peoples Democratic Party.
In the second part of a series of interview with PREMIUM TIMES, Mr El-Rufai gives an insight into the negotiations that would eventually culminate in a merger. 
The CPC, he says, envisages that the merger will be perfect this time around. 
“I do not see the reason why they formed the two parties (ACN and CPC),” Mr. El-Rufai said. “Both parties have similar ideology.”

Nakhon Ratchasima police have arrested a Nigerian man for allegedly duping a Thai woman into sending him tens of thousands of baht after leading her to believe he wanted to marry her.

Acting Inspector-General of Police Takes Over Investigation Of Mr. Olatian Oyerinde’s Murder

The Touch Of A Man Makes Women Hot - Research

Being touched by a man really gets the ladies hot, new research suggests. When physically touched by a male experimenter, women actually did get "hot and bothered" — their skin temperature increased, specifically in the face and chest.

"Women showed a temperature increase when they were involved in social contact with the male experimenter," study researcher Amanda Hahn, of the University of St. Andrews, in the United Kingdom, told LiveScience. "In some women they changed by almost a whole degree" Celsius, or 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit.

These changes were subconscious in many of the participants. Figuring out how skin temperature changes in response to stress and other emotional factors could help researchers study arousal non-invasively and develop hands-off lie detectors.

The face heats up when under stress, or when scared, or angry (hence the term hot-headed). The researchers wanted to find how other emotions impact facial temperature, so they took heat-showing pictures of two groups of young heterosexual women during a standard interaction with an experimenter, which included touching the arm, palm, face and chest (using a light probe that they were told measures skin color).

Falana Wants Jonathan To Name Eagle Square After Abiola And Not UNILAG

Radical lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana, reacting to the federal government change of the name of the University of Lagos to Mashood Abiola University said in in Lagos Tuesday evening that the Goodluck Jonathan Administration deserves commendation for its decision to honour the heroic sacrifice of Chief MKO Abiola in  the struggle for the restoration of civil rule in Nigeria, but adds that since the name of the Ogun State Polytechnic has since been changed to Moshood Abiola Polytechnic by the Ogun State government there is no justification for naming another institution after the leading hero of liberal democracy in the country.
"The impression should not be created that Chief Abiola's mandate was restricted to the South West" says Falana who adds that "unlike  successive regimes since 1993 which have failed to recognise the enormous contributions of the Late Chief Abiola to the defence of the democratic rights of the Nigerian people the Jonathan Administration deserves commendation for honouring his memory." said Mr Falana
He proposed however, that the best way to honour Chief Abiola is to  release the results of the 1993 Presidential Election and declare him the winner instead of continue to refer to him as "the presumed winner "of the fair and free election.
Mr. Falana counseled the president that "Since the University of Lagos Act has not been amended by the  National Assembly to reflect the proposed change of name President Jonathan should be advised to drop the plan to remane the institution."

How A Helpless Undergraduate Nursing Mother Was Raped By A Masquerade

The victim, Ngozika Ugwu
Tension mounts in Opi, Nsukka Local Government Area, Enugu State as masquerades took turn in the series of rape stories synonymous with the community. The alleged rape of a female student, Ngozika Ugwu, presented mixed feelings and reactions to what may have bedevilled the community in the recent past.

Her story:
It happened on March 21, 2012. There were three masquerades that day but two were spotted and people started running. I was going to fetch water and as people were running, I equally ran and hid somewhere until the two masquerades passed. After the masquerades passed, I came out and continued with my journey. Soon, I heard a child saying that another masquerade was coming. I didn’t see the masquerade but people were running and I ran to enter into someone’s house.

The masquerade emerged from a corner (apiam way) and pushed me into the building where I was running to. I tried to escape but could not. It caught up with me and started beating me. What surprised me was that the masquerade said it has been looking for me for long and had now caught up with me. I sought to know what I did to deserve such treatment and at the same time pleading for forgiveness but it continued with its threat.

Liberia Ex-President Charles Taylor Sentenced To 50 Years In Prison For War Crimes

Judges at an international war crimes court sentenced former Liberian President Charles Taylor to 50 years in prison Wednesday, saying he was responsible for "some of the most heinous and brutal crimes recorded in human history."

The 64-year-old warlord-turned-president is the first former head of state convicted by an international war crimes court since World War II and judges said they had no precedent when deciding his sentence.

Taylor will serve his sentence in a British jail. His lawyers, however, are expected to appeal his convictions and that will likely keep him in a jail in The Hague, Netherlands, for months.

Taylor was convicted last month on 11 charges of aiding and abetting the rebels who went on a savage rampage during the decade-long war that ended in 2002 with more than 50,000 dead.

Much Ado About A President’s Broadcast! Clueless Leaders, Clueless Followers? (A Must Read)

This is an interesting piece I saw and feel like sharing it.

“In a democracy, the people get the government they deserve” – Alexis de Tocqueville
The presidential broadcast marking 2012 Democracy Day has come and gone however, as it has become the norm that any time the President speaks, there MUST be angry reactions this is no exception.
The President’s Democracy Day Broadcast has 71 paragraphs with each majorly treating separate issues. The renaming of the hitherto University of Lagos (UNILAG) as Moshood Abiola University (MAU) which was contained in the very last paragraph (71st) paragraph is the bone of contention this time.

So controversial it is that many Nigerians who did not listen “LIVE” to the President’s Broadcast would believe, thanks to the unnecessary noise, that all the President said during the one-hour Broadcast was the announcement of the renaming of UNILAG.
I am deeply disturbed by the unnecessary hullabaloo that this issue has generated. For God’s sake, Mr. President talked for one hour and it is shameful that one thing that we could pick out from the whole speech is the issue of the nomenclature of an educational institution.
Before I go on, let me quickly say that I am not a fan of President Goodluck Jonathan.

Nigerian Pastor Joshua Esosa, Jailed In Austria Cries For Justice: Help Him Sign His Online Petition

Pastor Joshua Esosa is from  Edo   State  and in the narration of his unbelievable ordeal, he recounted how he had been arrested, framed up and jailed for a crime he said that he had never committed. His Story:
“I am Pastor Joshua Esosa from  Edo   State . My story is so sad, humiliating and painful each time I remember that bitter experience of 2nd February 2011.  On this day, I just closed from the church and went straight home in twelfth district in  Vienna  to an apartment provided for me by the church because as at of this time I had problems with my wife and because of the nature of the society we are living in, we were trying to sort out things living separately.
At about 11pm on this day, my wife called me and said that she was sick and that I should come home to take care of the children so that she could go to the hospital. It was very unusual that I felt somehow.
However, I told her that it was already too late because it would take me about an hour to get to there now and whether she could not wait till the next day. She insisted that I should please try to come. So, I now went to see her. When I got there it was around12 midnight and I had to press the bell because I did not have the key.
Please  electronics don’t tell lies.
And before I could open the door the police had already accosted and apprehended me and said, ‘You drug dealer, drug dealer, drug dealer’. And I said, what; me a drug dealer?  I did not even resist them as I allowed them to search me. They searched me and found €600 with the church cash card and said, ‘Yeah this is the drug money’.
I told them that €400 of that €600 was the money of the church that I had withdrawn few hours ago from AKH and that if they go to the bank they would see that what I had told them was the truth.

According to Abiola, the renaming is just one way of honouring and immortalising him.

UK Jails 40-Year-Old Woman Who Was Allegedly Drugged By 2 Nigerians

A DRAMATIC encounter with Nigerian drug traffickers in Senegal, Africa landed a Bulawayo MDC activist into a British prison after she was sniffed out of cocaine in her stomach with a street value of millions of British Pounds at Heathrow International Airport, The ZimDiaspora has found out.

Tryness Ncube now 40, has spent three years in prison in the United Kingdom after she was arrested upon arrival at Heathrow International Airport where terminal three scanners detected up to 600 grams of cocaine in her stomach.
She denies knowledge as to how she swallowed the most notorious drugs, though admitting she was feeling uncomfortable in her stomach.

What I remember is someone coming over with some prepared food to a B & Q I was staying in. I also remember the nigerians asking me to have a drink, first.

21 American Scholars Write Clinton, Opposing Terrorist Designation For Boko Haram

May 21, 2012
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
U.S. Department of State
2201 C Street NW
Washington, DC 20520
Dear Secretary Clinton:
As scholars with a special interest in Nigeria and broad expertise on African politics, we are writing to urge that you not designate Boko Haram a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). We are acutely aware of the horrific violence perpetrated by Boko Haram, including attacks on both Muslims and Christians in Nigeria, whether government officials or civilian targets. We share your concerns about the impact of extremist violence on Nigeria’s democratic progress and security in general. However an FTO designation would internationalize Boko Haram, legitimize abuses by Nigeria’s security services, limit the State Department’s latitude in shaping a long term strategy, and undermine the U.S. Government’s ability to receive effective independent analysis from the region.
An FTO designation would internationalize Boko Haram’s standing and enhance its status among radical organizations elsewhere. Boko Haram’s recent tactics, including the use of suicide bombers and improvised explosive devices, raise questions about their foreign links. The network’s focus has been overwhelmingly domestic, despite an August 2011 attack on the United Nations office in Abuja. Rhetorically, some of Boko Haram’s critique of northern underdevelopment and elite corruption is within the realm of mainstream political discourse.

Save Nigeria Group Rejects President Goodluck Jonathan Renaming UNILAG After MKO Abiola

The Save Nigeria Group(SNG) while acknowledging the eternal place of Bashorun M.K.O Abiola, the winner of June 12 elections, in the political history of Nigeria and would want the highest possible honor done to him; deplores the indecent manner in which President Goodluck Jonathan has re-named the University of Lagos after him.

Renaming a University established by law through presidential fiat is an abuse of power which would make even the symbol of democracy turn several times in his grave as he died in the process of fighting against arbitrariness and rule of he thumb which the annulment of June 12 represented.

It is violation of the principles and tenets of democracy which government officials are celebrating to go on air to announce the renaming of an institution like the University of Lagos without any consultations with the university community in a manner reminiscent of the autocratic ways of the military brass hats who denied Abiola his victory in 1993 because they arrogated to themselves better knowledge than 14 million Nigerians who went to the polls.

It was also posted on Seun Osewa’s Nairaland ( http://www.nairaland.com/ ).
