#EdoDecides: Abdulmutallab, US Bomber’s Portrait, Name Appears In Voters’ Register

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who was jailed in the United States in 2012  for terrorism offences has appeared on the voters’ register in Edo state.

Governor Adams Oshiomhole drew attention to the existence of  AbdulMuttalab’s  portrait in a fake voters register now in circulation.

A high stake governorship election is due in the state tomorrow, with the All Progressives Congress candidate, Godwin Obaseki locked against Pastor Ize Iyamu of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.

Oshiomhole spoke about AbdulMutallab  during a visit to him by the United States Consul General in Lagos, Mr F John Bray.

The Edo governor said he was shocked to see the portrait of the “underwear bomber” in the fake register, but with a Benin name.

Abdulmutallab was convicted of attempting on December 25, 2009. to detonate explosives hidden in his underwear on board an airline from Amsterdam to Detroit, Michigan.

Governor Oshiomhole who raised concern about the duplication of the voter’s register by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said “the foundation for credible election is the voter’s register. Once the voter’s register is manipulated, then you have problems.

Shekau Appears In New Video, Says He Is In Good Health

A factional leader of the Boko Haram militant group, Abubakar Shekau, has appeared in a new video released on YouTube.
Shekau, who sat throughout the 40-minute video, denied claims by the Nigerian military that he was killed or badly injured in recent air strikes.

Speaking in Arabic, Hausa and Kanuri, he said he was still in charge of the militant group.
“Oh tyrants, I’m in a happy state, in good health and in safety,” he said.
Earlier this month, the Islamic State in the Levant and Syria (ISLS) announced Shekau’s replacement with Abu Musab Albarnawi, the son of the late Boko Haram founder, Muhammed Yusuf. Shekau rejected the move. It is not certain when the latest video was recorded.
Defence spokesman, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, in his reaction said it was immaterial whether Shekau was alive or not.
He said the military was not bothered if he was alive, adding that the most important thing was to finish the decimation of Boko Haram.
“We will continue to hit them hard, so the only soft ground for them is the non-traditional media, where all stories can be fashioned to serve their evil and inglorious acts.”
“They know what we have done and what we are up to, they are losing by the days, their members are surrendering on daily basis, we are urging you and your followers to turn yourselves in for your own good before it’s too late,” he said.

Shekau Appears In New Video, Threatens The Whole World

Boko Haram’s shadowy leader Abubakar Shekau has appeared in a new video vowing to fight on, shrugging off an apparent split in the hardline jihadist group blamed for thousands of deaths since 2009.

“I… Abubakar Ash-Shakawy (Shekau), the leader of Jama’atu Ahlissunnah Lidda’awati Wal Jihad, made it a duty for myself (to fight) Nigeria and the whole world,” Shekau said in the video released on Sunday, using the group’s name since it declared allegiance to the so-called Islamic State.

Last week, Shekau said in an audio message he was still head of the group despite his purported replacement by Sheikh Abu Musab al-Barnawi, a former Boko Haram spokesman.

“We have no desire to fight our Muslim brethren,” Shekau, who last appeared in March, said in the 24-minute video.

Shekau ridiculed suggestions that he was dead, and looked more composed and energetic than in previous appearances.

“I’m alive by the permission of Allah,” he said in his speech in Arabic and Hausa, adding that he would only die when his time came.

In the video he is wearing camouflage gear and holding a machine gun, standing between two Islamist fighters in balaclavas armed with rocket-propelled grenade launchers.

He taunted President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and condemned Western countries including the United States, France, Germany and “the tyrants of the United Nonsense (UN)”.

At the end of his speech — apparently filmed in Boko Haram’s stronghold in the Sambisa forest of northeastern Nigeria — he fired off rounds of ammunition into the air.

Diezani Spotted At London Police Station

Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke, on Thursday, finally appeared before police in London, UK. It was reported that Diezani was spotted at the Charing Cross Police Station, London to honour the summons by the British Police authorities.

The former minister was given bail on the same condition granted earlier and asked to return to the station on 21 June. Alison-Madueke, who was one of the most influential officials in the President Goodluck Jonathan government, was arrested by the UK in October 2015 by the National Crimes Agency, together with four other people.

The accusations against her were looting and money laundering in the United Kingdom using a network of relatives and businessmen. President Muhammadu Buhari had restated many times that his administration was determined to fully sanitize Nigeria’s oil industry and make it totally free of corruption and shady deals.

He had also pledged to begin the prosecution of those involved in shady deals in the oil sector.

See It? Jesus Appears In Family Photo By Statue Of Christ (PHOTO)

Did Jesus really appear next to a Colombian family as they posed by a gigantic statue of Christ?

That’s what Colombian man Juan David Montano is claiming – after he spotted a spooky outline on the digital image of his relatives.

The 22-year-old was on a family trip to the 26-metre high Cristo Rey near Cali on Sunday when they all posed for the snap.

But he was left stunned when he checked the picture – and saw a phantom-like figure dressed in a white long robe.

Montano believes it was Jesus.

“I was stunned. Something like a ghost dressed in white clothes can be seen,” he told local media.

“There were a lot of people around and when I showed it to a man, he got scared and remained quiet.

“When we took the photo, we didn’t see anything around us, but when we looked at the image, this shape had appeared,” he added.

His neighbours have suggested it was actually a ghost.

“A neighbour who practices Santeria said that it looks fuzzy, because when the photo was taken the ghost was not yet manifested well,” he told Noticias Caracol.

But Montano remains sure it was the Son of God who appeared to his family.
