How I Was Attacked In Kafanchan- El-Rufai

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State yesterday narrated how his convoy was attacked in Kafanchan, Jema’a local government of the state.

El-Rufai in a statement issued by his media aide, Samuel Aruwan,  said he was in Kafanchan Tuesday with his entourage to hold the state security council meeting when three women led protesters to ask him certain questions.

He said, “I listened to three of the women who led the protesters as they asked me questions. I answered them and even invited them to a larger meeting, but they went on rampage and burnt the residence of the local government chairman.”

The governor confirmed he and his entourage were pelted with stones and that window glasses of some of the vehicles in his convoy were broken after he addressed some demonstrators.

It was observed that Kafanchan was calm as the curfew imposed on the local government area on Monday was still in place and most people remained in their houses hoping for the curfew to be lifted.

In Kaduna, there was slight tension when it was confirmed that the governor’s convoy was pelted with stones and cars in his convoy smashed while he was whisked away through a different route from the one he intended using, to escape some youths who had blocked the road.

The governor appealed to citizens not to respond to the treatment meted to him by the protesters in Kafanchan, saying he regarded it as part of the burden of leadership.

How Suicide Bombers Attacked Chibok Market

At least 14 people were killed on Wednesday when two male and three female suicide bombers blew themselves up in a market in Chibok, Borno State.

The attack occurred nearly two years after 200 girls were abducted by Boko Haram militants in the town.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the attack bore the hallmarks of Boko Haram, which has been using suicide bombers since the Army expelled the group from much of the northern territory it had captured previously.

About 60 people, including two soldiers injured in the attack are receiving treatments in various hospitals in the state.

Reports say the suicide bombers stormed the sub market in Chibok on motorcycles at about 12.54PM local time, after which explosions were heard.

Kylie Jenner was attacked by an overzealous fan at a Chris Brown show at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on Friday, Sept. 18 — but luckily for the reality star, her now-infamous bodyguards were on-hand to get her to safety.

In a TMZ video, the 18-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star can be seen trying to make her way out of the concert (in a colorful printed outfit and long green-blonde hair) when a fan reaches out and grabs her locks.

Jenner’s head actually snaps back and she grimaces from the tug, but her bodyguards quickly step in to usher her out of the venue.

US Ambassador Attacked in South Korea

The US ambassador to South Korea has been attacked by a knife-wielding man shouting anti-war slogans during a public event at an arts centre in Seoul.

The ambassador, Mark Lippert, was assaulted during a breakfast conference on Thursday as he was preparing to give a lecture about prospects for peace on the divided Korean Peninsula.

The US embassy said Lippert was in stable condition after surgery at a Seoul hospital. Hours after the attack Lippert tweeted that he is “doing well and in great spirits”.

The suspect, identified by police as Kim Ki-jong, 55, was immediately apprehended at the scene. Police said he slashed Lippert on the face and wrist with a knife. Kim had a previous conviction for hurling a stone at the then Japanese ambassador to Seoul in 2010, police said.

“We have detained him and are investigating the cause of the attack and other circumstances,” said district police chief Yoon Myung-soon.

Sources told Al Jazeera that Kim is the head of a relatively small civic organisation that has been calling for peace and reconciliation with North Korea.
