Fights Break Out Among Rival Groups Of Boko Haram

In-fighting has broken out in Boko Haram after the Islamic State group announced a new leader of its Nigerian affiliate, according to reports in the country’s remote northeast.

IS said last month that Abu Musab al-Barnawi, the son of Boko Haram’s founder Mohammed Yusuf, had replaced Abubakar Shekau at the head of the designated terrorist organisation.

But Shekau then insisted he was still in charge of the Islamist group, whose insurgency has killed at least 20,000 people since 2009 and forced more than 2.6 million from their homes.Sources in northeast Nigeria now say there have been deadly skirmishes between the two factions, even as Nigeria’s military seeks to finally rout the rebels in a sustained counter-offensive.

Last Thursday, several fighters from Shekau’s camp were said to have been killed in two separate gun battles with IS-backed Barnawi gunmen in the Monguno area of Borno state near Lake Chad.

Nigeria’s military declined to comment on the reported in-fighting when contacted by AFP.

Mele Kaka, who lives in the area, told AFP: “The Barnawi faction launched an offensive against the Shekau faction who were camped in the villages of Yele and Arafa.

“In Yele, the assailants killed three people from the Shekau camp, injured one and took one with them, while several were killed in Arafa,” he said by telephone from the state capital, Maiduguri.

The attack prompted residents of Arafa to flee, he added.

Fighters from Barnawi camp had the previous day attacked gunmen loyal to Shekau in Zuwa village in nearby Marte district, killing an unspecified number, Kaka said.

“The Barnawi fighters told villagers after each attack that they were fighting the other camp because they had derailed from the true jihad and were killing innocent people, looting their property and burning their homes,” he went on.

“They said such acts contravene the teachings of Islam and true jihad.”

Woman Stabs Neighbour To Death For Interfering In A Fight Between Herself & Husband

The police in Lagos have arrested a woman, Ndifreke Femi, 30, for allegedly stabbing her neighbour to death. Although the incident occurred at Block 109, Ikota Housing Estate in Ajah, the suspect is being held at the Homicide Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) at Panti-Yaba.

The Nation learnt that the police have launched a manhunt for the suspect’s husband who allegedly fled from home after the incident.

It was gathered that the mother of two stabbed Ayomide Ayenuwa, 28, on the neck with a kitchen
knife when he attempted to settle a rift between her and her husband.

According to neighbours, the deceased had gone into the Femi’s home to pay his electricity bill but met the couple quarrelling over a missing N20,000. The woman claimed that her husband stole the cash.

The late Ayenuwa said to have attempted to broker peace between them, but to no avail and as he was leaving their apartment, the woman rushed to her kitchen, picked a kitchen knife and allegedly stabbed him on the neck.

It was learnt that other neighbours rushed him to Peninsula Hospital but he was referred to the Akodo General Hospital. He died on the way to the general hospital.

A neighbour, James Peter, while narrating the incident said: “When he got to their room, he saw the husband and wife quarrelling. Ndifreke was accusing her husband of stealing the N20,000 she hid under their mattress. Her husband denied the allegation but she was ready for a fight.

“It was at this point that Ayenuwa made efforts to settle the couple but they kept fighting. Ayenuwa appealed to Ndifreke to take the matter easy but she descended on him and started calling him names. She told him to mind his business.

“That was how Ayenuwa left the couple to their trouble. As he was walking away, Ndifreke ran into the kitchen and brought out a kitchen knife which she used to stab Ayenuwa on his neck from behind. Neighbours made efforts to save Ayenuwa’s life while others held Ndifreke down and almost lynched her.

“The neighbours with Ayenuwa’s family rushed him to the Peninsula Hospital at Ajah for treatment but he was referred to the Akodo General Hospital. Sadly, he died on his way to the hospital.”

But in her statement to the police, the suspect claimed she acted in self defence.

She alleged that the deceased attacked her first by punching her on the head.

The trip was one of the first major outings for the couple following Kylie’s 18th birthday, and they showed off PDA as well Tyga’s new tattoo of his girlfriend’s name.

In a sneak peek for the reality show’s 11th season, Tyga revealed the ink to Kris Jenner and fans got a closer look at the drama that will play out between the sisters on the St. Barts trip.

“I was really looking forward to this trip to hang out with you,” Kendall admits when Kylie is spending most of her time with her boyfriend.

25-Year Old Who Killed Man Who Stopped Him From Fighting His Sister, Burnt To Death By Mob

An angry mob at Ungwan-Rukuba New Road of the Nasarawa area of Jos, on Wednesday burnt a 25-year-old man, Mantau Black, for allegedly stabbing one Sati Samola to death.

A witness who preferred anonymity told the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, on Thursday that Mr. Black was lynched in revenge for the deadly stab he inflicted on Mr. Samola.

The witness said Mr. Black went after Mr. Samola and stabbed him in anger over his intervention in a fight between Mr. Black and his (Black’s) younger sister.

The witness said further that Mr. Samola was first rushed to a private hospital, which refused to treat him, before he was taken to the Plateau Specialist Hospital, where he later died.

Angered by the development, youths of the area were said to have gone after the suspected killer (Black) and wrestled him from the policemen and some soldiers who intervened and wanted him to be prosecuted.

The witness said the youths quickly put a used tyre round the neck of the suspect, set it ablaze and waited till he was burnt to death before they dispersed to bury Mr. Samola.

According to the source, the youths claimed that the suspect was fond of “misbehaving” and might be freed by the security agents to unleash even worse havoc on society.

“They, therefore, insisted on ‘removing’ him from their midst,” the source told NAN.

Contacted, the Public Relations Officer of the Plateau Command, Emmanuel Abuh, confirmed the incident.

“I went there (where it happened), yesterday, but could not see the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), in charge of the area.

“We shall soon get more facts on the matter and get back to you,” he told NAN.


One Stabbed As Nigerian Prostitutes Election Turns Bloody In Lagos

The 2015 election of National Association of Nigerian Prostitutes, NANP, has been marred with violence.

DAILY POST gathered that violence broke out Sunday after former secretary of the association, Jessica Elvis was declared winner of the keenly contested election, which took place at a popular hangout, along Lasu-Iba road on Saturday.

It was gathered that Elvis polled 300 votes to defeat the incumbent, Madam Felix Efoyo, who garnered 153 votes as well as Nasarawa State Coordinator, Tamar Tion who got 63 votes.

However, the incumbent rejected the outcome of the election, claiming that the election was marred with irregularities.

Shortly after the 2015 electoral committee chairman, Franca ‘Top Up’ Chikam announced Elvis as the winner, the incumbent, Madam Efoyo revolted and ordered for a fresh election on the ground that she was rigged out.

In the cause of the argument, fight broke out and one person believed to be loyal to Efoyo broke a bottle and stabbed one of their members.

Two Senior Pastors Continue Their Bloody Fight Over Who Will Be General Superintendent

The shameless leadership tussle in the Assemblies of God Church is getting out of hand. Reports suggest that there would have been another bloodbath recently but for the timely intervention of the police.

Vanguard reports that factionalization of the church has resulted in crisis which has been brewing in the church as two senior Reverends, Professor Paul Emeka and Dr Chidi Okoroafor, have been at loggerheads, each laying claim to be the overall leader of the church, qualified to bear the designation General Superintendent, GS.

It was also gathered that the case has been taken to the court and is presently in the Supreme Court, awaiting the final arbitration but while awaiting the judgement, members of the 27 Mount Street Parish, Enugu engaged in free-for-all centering on the crisis over who takes control of the parish which is believed to be lucrative.

Reverend Nathaniel Udeze had reportedly stormed the Mount Street parish with letters of posting and other court documents empowering him to be installed as the new pastor of the parish that morning, but he was vehemently resisted along with his team of loyalists by the current Resident pastor of the parish, Reverend Amaechi Agbo who, along with his loyalists, accused Udeze of being an “intruder”.

This did not go down well with the visiting pastor, whose men allegedly swung into swift action as Udeze insisted on taking over since he had been officially posted there by the leadership of the church under Rev Paul Emeka.

It took the timely intervention of the police who raced to the place, to avert further crisis and the church was locked up.

This was not the first time members of the congregation would engage in such a show of shame It has already happened around March this year and also last year, hell was also let loose at the national headquarters of the church located in Enugu when the two warring factions engaged in a bloody clash that left no fewer than five persons seriously injured, while four cars parked at the premises were burnt beyond recognition during the free for all that ensued.

On how the party averted bloodshed during the fracas, the state police command’s image maker, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, said: “please let me correct one impression. We (Police) did not lock up any church. Ours is to ensure that there is no breakdown of law and order. What happened was that we intervened and averted what could have resulted to bloodshed.

“If  not for our timely intervention that Sunday, it could have been a different story. When efforts were made to bring the two factions to amicable settlement, which was not forthcoming, we gave our advice, so they locked it up and the keys are with them not with us (Police). But for now, we are monitoring the place to ensure that no unpleasant thing occurred there.”

The One Thing Every Couple Fights About

We’ve all been there: those brutal fights with your partner or spouse that lead to skyrocketing blood pressure and slammed doors. But before things get completely out of hand, there’s actually one key question you both should ask: Are we both really fighting about the same thing?

This question, both obvious and not—when you’re in the thick of an argument, anyway—is a pretty simple exercise that could save couples plenty of heartache and takes only about two minutes, says psychologist Guy Winch, Ph.D, author of Emotional First Aid:Practical Strategies for Healing Rejection, Guilt, Failure and Other Everyday Hurts.

We’re going to guess your gut reaction is something like this: Of course we’re fighting about the same issue—that’s why we’re fighting!The trouble is, though, there’s a really good chance that you and your partner are neither discussing the same topic nor recognizing the discrepancy. And this kind of miscommunication is a common, but avoidable, source of relationship trouble.

According to Dr. Winch, many couples’ arguments are either about two entirely separate issues or involve one or both partners trying to read the mind of the other. (Unsuccessfully, because no one has ESP. Yet, at least.) Think about it: How many times have you jumped the gun and gotten defensive before any insults have actually been hurled? Couples often wind up waging arguments against their own wrong interpretation—rather than what’s really being said.

But those same defensive instincts are biological. “Arguments often trigger the ‘fight or flight’ response, which makes blood rush to our limbs but away from our heads—which is what we use to perceive the other person’s point of view and articulate things correctly,” says Winch. “Thus, our brains are functioning inefficiently—at least as far as rational arguing goes—which in turn contributes to miscommunication being more the norm than the exception.”
