Mama Boko Haram pleads
A respected North-Eastern human rights activist, popularly called Mama Boko Haram, Barrister Aisha Alkali Wakil has appealed to the abductors to release the young female captives, owing to the strong conviction that the Abu Musab Al-Barnawi-led faction of Boko Haram might be responsible for the abduction of Dapchi School Girls,
Aisha Wakil, a former member of the Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges in the northern region of Nigeria under the administration of former president Goodluck Jonathan, had, in previous efforts, brought military officers and Boko Haram Commanders together during negotiations. She was also credited to the release of some abductees from the Boko Haram sect via phone calls to the leadership, including some Chibok girls.

Speaking to PRNigeria in Maiduguri, Borno State, Aisha who is said to be highly respected by some leaders of Boko Haram said she was ready to sacrifice her life to rescue the girls from abductors. The activist was reported to have helped in circumcision of some kids over two decades ago who later became Boko Haram members. Her relationship with the sect members earned her the name ‘Mama Boko Haram.
Disturbed about the latest abduction of 110 students of Government Girls Technical College Dapchi, Aisha has renewed her commitment to fight to end the Boko Haram insurgency. Mama Boko Haram who cried profoundly, said
This thing that is happening, is really breaking my heart. These children don’t even know what they are doing. Some of them were not even born at the time this thing started. “Wallahi I will go after them, even if it will take my life to save these girls. They call me Mummy, but they don’t listen to me. I keep on talking to them, begging them to lay down their arms and embrace peace but they will say ‘Insha-Allah mummy we are going to stop.’ Sometimes they will say they are scared they are going to be killed but I will tell them nobody is going to kill you.”
Appealing to the leader of the Boko Haram Sect, Aisha said:
I heard you are now been called ‘Abu Mussad Albarnawi’ but I know you as Habib and I am begging you to stop the killing and abduction. I have sent many messages to you. I don’t know if you are getting these messages or you just choose to continue to hurt your mother and make her cry. Dear Habib, Nuru and others, I was told you may be the ones responsible for the kidnapped of these girls. Where ever you may be if you are listening to me, I beg you in the name of Allah to release the girls back to their families. What type of children will continue letting their mother to continue crying.
Dear Habib, I pray Allah touches your heart and that of your colleagues to stop what you are doing. Please come out. I will never deny you even if the whole world did. Those who know you know your heart. They know you are no longer interested in the fight anymore. I will hold all of you and wrap you with my wrapper and bring you out and no one is going to shoot you. If they will shoot you, they will have to shoot me first. I don’t mind sacrificing my life if you will stop what you are doing. If I die stopping Boko Haram, I know I will go to paradise.”
Respected by many in her community, Aisha Wakil has been actively involved in efforts to end Boko Haram through her NGO “Complete Care and Aid Foundation” aimed at restoring peace to the northeast by rehabilitating the youth against warped ideologies that mislead them to join the terror group.
The organisation is designed to provide a free feeding centre, fight drug abuse, sex hawking, human trafficking, female genital mutilation and de-worming among persons displaced by the insurgency.

ZLATAN WITHDRAWS HELPING SEGUN WIRE
THE TRUE EVENT TO THE CONTROVERSIAL STORY ONLINE
On the 24th of February 2018 Zlatan Ibile decided to take a legal action against the family of segun wire, as the family use him as an extortion means of making money off the boy’s famous status (there is an actual proof of this event, as segun wire was found sending a voice note extorting a well wisher of 85k there by framing Zlatan of not paying the present term school fees which in fact there is a receipt issued of the school that zlatan has payed since November last year )
So after reporting this incident to human rights authorities!! They decided to invite segun wire’s family in for questioning to hear from both sides but on getting to their house for invite with the two representatives of human rights for questioning they refused out of ignorance and decided to take law into their hands by molesting zlatan and his manager and as well chased away the two law representatives. Segun Wire’s mum stripped her self Unclad in framing Zlatan of beating her so the hoodlums would beat him and his manager!
She also wen further to accuse Zlatan of collecting the some of 2million Naira from the likes of davido and Olamide Who they claimed has assisted segun wire with finance …. Further more Zlatan and his manger where dragged to an undisclosed camp of hoodlums for mobbing it took the intervention of the law enforcement to safe the situation there by arresting the culprits ….
Zlatan Ibile Withdraws
As it is the culprits are apprehended and segun wire’s family who instigated the entire event are being questioned for their actions and henceforth Zlatan ibile’s family has instructed him to desist from rendering kindness to the family of segun wire as they don’t appreciate the value so therefore Zlatan has officially withdrawn from the brand segun wire … All evidence attached are School fees receipt for the said term segun wire family lied that Zlatan has not paid for the term which is false.
And secondly this is the video of Zlatan empowering segun wire’s mum with the sum of 50k to start a business in providing further for the family!! She squandered it and went back begging.

JAMB warns parents
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB has asked the parents of candidates sitting the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination to stay away from Computer-Based Centres.
The JAMB Registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, who said this on Monday in Abuja while monitoring the Mock UTME at the Kogo and Veritas University CBT centres, noted that some parents had formed the habit of hanging around the centres to engage in examination malpractice.
JAMB Registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede said,
We urge parents to keep away from CBT centres. We are preparing people for university education, but the parents come around too often. They want their children or their wards to pass at all costs.
“This practice is not helpful because they will not follow these candidates to the lecture rooms. Lecturers and others will start taking undue advantage of such parents because they are not mature. They are not prepared for the task. I think parents should steer clear of all CBT centres and allow the children to grow.”
Oloyede urged the UTME candidates to desist from cheating during the examination, as the board would monitor all the computers to be used.
He said that all electronic devices, such as phones, headsets, flash drives and other items, such as wristwatches and calculators, remained banned.
Noting that the ban on special eyeglasses and pens also applied to supervisors and examiners, the registrar said,
“We urge the candidates to avoid any form of malpractice or shortcut to passing the examination. You are aware that we have banned some items from going into the examination halls; we have banned special glasses, wristwatches and many other things that we are aware our candidates use for illicit activities.
“As the candidates are getting cleverer, the board is getting wiser. We have done everything possible to avoid the issue of logging out. When a student sees that the questions are difficult, he plays some pranks, remove some wires, pulls out the cable. Then there is a problem. But we are going to monitor every system and if we discover that a candidate deliberately shut down a system, he will carry his cross.”

This is the second time in four days that a Federal Government delegation would visit Yobe State since the unfortunate incident. This is a measure of the seriousness with which we are addressing the issue. The security forces are leaving no stone unturned in their search for the girls.
We are back here in Yobe as part of efforts to provide some succour to the parents of the girls, to let them know that they are not alone and also to reassure them that we will not rest until we have found the girls. We will carry the parents along on the efforts we are making,” he said

2018 Mock UTME
The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board has banned the use of 16 items in the forthcoming mock examinations scheduled for February 26, 2018.
The Secretary of JAMB UTME Monitoring Groups, Ngozi Egbuna, stated the items in a memo issued to members of the Civil Society Group on Thursday and obtained by The PUNCH in Jos.
The memo reads: “Kindly note that examination officials are allowed to scrutinise eye glasses or similar devices and where convinced that such item may compromise the sanctity of the examination, the examination official should confiscate it.
“Where examination official (board staff or ad hoc staff) or any authorised person is found with any of these prohibited items in the examination hall, such compromising action would be treated as a deliberate act of examination sabotage and necessary sanction will be applied.
The CSG is one of the groups inaugurated by JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, to assist in monitoring the UTME.
Last year, the groups were reputed to have assisted in giving information from the field and transmitted several challenges, as applicable, to JAMB officials.
Through the JAMB UTME Monitoring Groups, examination malpractices were said to have reduced in 2017.
The prohibited items are wrist watches, pen/biro, mobile phones or similar electronic devices, spy reading glasses which should be scrutinised, calculators or similar electronic devices, USB, CD, hard disks and/or similar storage devices.
Others are books or any reading/writing material, cameras, recorders, microphones, ear pieces, ink/pen readers, smart lenses, smart rings/jewellery, smart buttons and Bluetooth devices.

Boko Haram terrorists had on Monday attacked the school abducting many of the students. In an interview with The Nation, Amina narrated how the incident happened.

She said: “When Boko Haram came to our school, we thought they were soldiers because they dressed like soldiers.
“We ran, and then one of them called us. One of them asked me to come to the car.
“I got close to the car, and then one of them started laughing at me.
“I moved closer to them, thinking they were soldiers.
“I soon realized that they were not soldiers. As I made to run away, one of them tried to grab me. I dodged him but he got my hijab. I quickly removed my hijab and left him with it and ran away. I thought I was dead.
“They entered our hostel again, but some of us ran into the bush. I ran up to five kilometres and hid in one Fulani settlement called Miligia.”
Asked how many students she saw in the invaders’ vehicles, Amina said: “There were many students in the vehicles. They were up to 50 that were in the vehicles.”
She said she felt like the angels should take her soul the moment she realized the men were Boko Haram terrorists.
She is not psychologically prepared to return to the Dapchi school.

Dapchi schoolgirls
Parents and guardians of the missing schoolgirls in Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state, broke into tears when Gov. Ibrahim Gaidam visited them without saying a word on the whereabouts of the girls.
Addressing the parents at the District Head’s palace in Dapchi on Thursday, the governor urged the parents to remain faithful as security operatives were still searching for the girls.
He said “soldiers have been pursuing the insurgents, although they receive information that the Boko Haram insurgents had passed some areas, but the communities in the areas said they did not spot the girls along with the insurgents.”
He assured that government and security operatives would not rest on their oars until the missing girls were accounted for. The waiting parents wept profusely as the earlier news that the girls were rescued turned out to be false.
The Yobe Government, on Wednesday, issued a statement claiming some of the missing girls had been rescued. Meanwhile, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, had appealed to parents and guardians for additional time to search for the missing school girls. 
The minister made the appeal while fielding questions from newsmen when he led Federal Government delegation to Dapchi on Thursday. He said the actual number of the missing schoolgirls would be determined in the next few days when parents come forward with complaint of their missing wards.

Three primary school students have reportedly lost their lives after consuming snacks given to them by a classmate – the students who attended Local Education Authority Primary School, Kubwa 2, Federal Capital Territory, were given the snack by an unidentified classmate on Tuesday.
Two of the students died in their respective homes at night, while the third victim reportedly collapsed and died at Kubwa General Hospital on Wednesday.
The deceased who were primary four pupils have been identified as Na’imat Yahaya, 14, and Yahaya Garba also 14.
The third victim, Moses Sunday is a Primary One student and was taken to the Kubwa General Hospital, along with two other pupils, namely, Aisha Isa and Hasiya Haruna.

A survivor, Hasiya Haruna, who was on admission at the hospital was said to have been rushed there by her mother, Fatima, when she learnt that she partook of the biscuits at school.
Speaking with Punch, Fatima who spoke in Hausa said;
“There was a party in the school where my daughter was given biscuit, alongside with other pupils. We discovered that some pupils died at night. “So, I asked her if she ate the biscuit and who gave her. She said it was shared to them by a Muslim sister and so I was satisfied with her explanation. “But we were asked to take her to the hospital because some pupils died. So, I decided to bring her here (Kubwa General Hospital).”

The police command, Kano state chapter has apprehended two young suspected kidnappers for abducting a 4-year-old child at Dorayi, in the state.
The duo, identified as Jabir Usman Sule and Bashir Aminu, demanded a N2m ransom from the parents of the abducted child – they reportedly handed the letter in which they made their demand for N2m ransom to the immediate elder brother of the abducted child, who later identified them thus leading to their arrest.

While responding to questions on what they plan to do with the money if collected, they said they had no plan but might have considered buying a tricycle with some of the money.

A stunning Nigerian couple, Mr and Mrs Chris Okoroigwe got wedded recently and there was something quite spectacular about their wedding ceremony.

The couple who had their pre-wedding/engagement shoot in school uniforms, received quite the surprise when some of their friends graced the occasion wearing school uniform.
See the lovely photos below:





Africa’s Richest woman, Folorunsho Alakija has shared details about her life, not so many people know of.. and according to her, she was able to achieve greatness in life without a University degree.
Folorunso Alakija took to Instagram to share this piece and she also opened up that she is the 8th child in her family of about 52 children.
She wrote:
“I would like to encourage you on my encounter with the Glory of God.

It happened almost 27 years ago when I gave my life to Christ at the age of 40 and my life has not been the same ever since, I pray your life too, will experience a total turn around.
I was born almost 67 years ago, into a large and illustrious polygamous Muslim family as number 8 out of 52 children through a father who had 8 wives.
Back then large families were common, but what was unusual was that I was one of the very first few Nigerian children who left it’s shores to go and study abroad at such a tender age of 7.
Even at that age, I knew I could not afford to let my family down cause I was seen as an ambassador.

My desire was to study law but my Daddy did not believe in investing in girls at that time.
Today, I have no university degree, but God’s glory lifted me up and I have received numerous Honorary Doctorate Degrees at home and abroad.
All of what you now see today has taken almost two and a half decades, so I am not an overnight success. On the contrary. Through God’s grace, I am a blood bought totally forgiven, absolutely redeemed, heaven bound child of God.
I have had to make sacrifices like everyone else, faced challenges but never given up.
I have not compromised myself, my values or my faith.
GLORY BE TO GOD.”
A second year student of Cape Coast Technical Institute in Ghana has severely been caned by a teacher for leaving his hair bushy, according to media reports.
The incident which took place on Tuesday 20th February, 2018 in the school premises left bruises all over the back and arms of the student.


One person has been killed with several others wounded on Tuesday following a bloody attack on Ikorodu Campus of the Lagos State Polytechnic, LASPOTECH, by suspected cultists.
The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports that the deceased, identified as Ahmed Amao, was a former LASPOTECH student who had been expelled from the institution.
NAN gathered that the group of hoodlums invaded the Ikorodu campus from different directions on Tuesday evening, chasing students around the polytechnic with guns, machettes and knives.
LASPOTECH spokesman, Olanrewaju Kuye, told NAN that the terrified students alerted the institution’s security personnel on sighting the hoodlums, comprising some former students of the polytechnic.
“So, we had to chase them out the campus via the polytechnic’s first gate; but when we got there, we discovered another set (hoodlums) approaching from the adjourning village to attack our students
“Upon sighting our security men the gang began to shoot at will and our security men had no choice but to retaliate.
“Unfortunately, we hit one of the hoodlums, Ahmed Amao, a former student who had been expelled for examination malpractice. We learnt he died on Wednesday,’’ Kuye said.
He added that but for the prompt response of the institution’s security personnel, many students could have lost their lives in the attack.
Kuye assured parents of the safety of their wards following the attack on the campus by suspected cultists, saying “this will never be allowed to happen again.
“They should go on with their normal duties because nothing untoward will happen to them.
“Our security men now wield firearms too and our students have our phone numbers for prompt response. We will not take chances,’’ said the LASPOTECH spokesman.
Confirming the incident, Chike Oti, Spokesman, Lagos State Police Command, said the attackers were on revenge mission following an attack on one of their members.
Oti said two suspects were arrested with a locally made pistol following the incident.
There was heavy presence of gun-wielding security personnel comprising the police, Oyabo (local vigilante) and private guards when NAN correspondent visited LASPOTECH Ikorodu Campus on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, calm is gradually returning to the institution as students and other members of the polytechnic community were seen going about their normal activities on Wednesday.

JAMB Registrar blasts Nigerians
Prof Ishaq Oloyede, Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has slammed Nigerians that have been making jokes out of the missing N36m from the board’s office in Makurdi, Benue State.
The JAMB boss was reacting to the recent claim by Philomena Chieshe, a sales clerk in JAMB office, Makurdi that her housemaid connived with another JAMB staff, Joan Asen, to “spiritually” swallow N36m from the vault in her office.
In her confessional statement while being interrogated by a team of auditors, she said that Joan Asen and her accomplices confessed that they had been stealing the money “spiritually” through a mysterious snake that always sneaked into the office to swallow the money from the vault.

Oloyede, who appeared in Focus, a morning programmed monitored by DAILY POST on AIT, said it is quite unfortunate that Nigerians have decided to turn the incident into a joke, thereby celebrating mediocrity.
According to him, “That is Nigerians for you, making jokes out of serious issue. I didn’t find it funny since the story broke out because I think as a nation with a future, rather than celebrating those achieving success, we are busy celebrating people who should be caned.
“You turned serious issue into to a national or an international joke. There are many snakes in other establishment but because those overseeing them are also snakes, that is why they could not be able to identify those snakes.
“Rather than creating an impression that JAMB is extraordinarily bad, they should give us a lesson to check where we went wrong.”
