#Automobiles: 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Pricing Starts At $120,825

When we got the first details on Mercedes-Benz’s 2016 G-Class range, it wasn’t clear the specifications that would be available in the United States. Now we know what will be on offer here, and how much they’ll set you back.

Opening bids for the G550 will start at a heady $120,825, including a $925 destination charge. As we learned in May, motivation will be provided by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8, which is both more compact and more powerful than the 5.5-liter mill of the outgoing model year. The new mill pumps out a healthy 416 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque.

Predictably, the body and ladder frame construction, permanent all-wheel drive, and triple shot of differential locks remain, and the suspension now gets Sport and Comfort modes not found on current models.

Prices for the G63 AMG will begin at 140,825, including the $925 destination charge, and the additional $20,000 provides for the familiar twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8, which delivers 563 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque. The extra grunt shaves half a second off the big rig’s zero to 62 mph time, meaning it needs just 5.4 seconds to get the job done.

New Terrorist Group In Kaduna, Police Arraigns 120 Suspected Members

Kaduna State Police Command yesterday arraigned 120 suspected members of a new terrorists group known as Sara- Suka before a Kaduna court.

The suspects who were taken to court in large number, were later assigned to various magistrate courts by the Chief Magistrate court One, Awaulu Musa Aliyu, for the continuation of the case. However the suspects were taken back to police custody.

It would be recalled that, Kaduna State governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, had earlier declared war on miscreants who have been terrorising the state for long adding that any resident who commits murder or engages in any criminal act under any guise shall face the full wrath of the law without delay.

Speaking with journalists over the arraignment, Kaduna State Police Command spokesman, Deputy Supritendant of Police,DSP Zubairu Abubakar, disclosed that 120 suspected criminals and terrorists’ gangs   were charged before the court for criminal activities adding that there is no hiding place for miscreants in the state.

He said, “We arrested 120 suspected criminals with some acts of terrorism, armed robbery and rape.

Some suspected to be members of terrorist gang known as Sara-Suka.We arrested some of them on the spot while committing the crime,while others were arrested based on complaints from the public”

Zubairu,warned criminals to repent now before it will be late for them stressing that security forces will continue to manhunt criminal elements in the state.


David Mark Sacks Son, Younger Brother, 120 Personal Assistants

Following the defeat of the Peoples Democratic Party in the last general elections, former Senate President, David Mark has off-loaded no fewer than 120 of his personal assistants and domestic workers, including his son and younger brother.

Reports gathered that Mark decided to dispose them after his ruling party was ousted from the presidency on March 28. It was indeed a double tragedy for Mark as his party also failed to return to power in his own Benue State.

Mark led the Senate for eight years, a feat no legislator has achieved in the history of Nigeria. Reports gathered that he hitherto had over 300 personal assistants and domestic workers. Among his workers were his son, Babatunde Mark and his brother, Igoche Mark.
