Ade Bakare is known for infusing batik prints of various fabrics like silk, cotton, chiffon and even lace. I loved the simple and african feel each piece seemed to possess and it reminded me that anything could indeed be done with our native prints and fabric. I also  (for reasons you might have guessed) couldn’t take my eyes off the male model who strutted along in just batik shorts.

Defence Headquarters: Boko Haram is Looting our Armoury

 

The Defence Headquarters has said that it was aware that members of the outlawed Boko Haram sect are in the habit of looting its armoury. The military authorities stated that they were making efforts to secure all armouries in its various formations across the country.

Director of Defence Information, Maj. Gen. Chris Olukolade, made the disclosure during his first real-time Twitter chat which held on Sunday night.

The army general was, however, not categorical about the grades of weapons just as he did not name the armouries that have so far been looted by the insurgents.
“We are taking measures to ensure that our armouries are secured. We agree and are aware Boko Haram has stolen arms.”
Olukolade said while responding to an inquiry by one of the participants of the Twitter chat.

Tony Tetuila has Changed his Campaign Poster Look



                                    
Tony Tetuila had received a huge backlash after campaign posters of him proudly rocking his blonde hair were released.

In an interview with Tribune, Tony said he had done it because some youth leaders told him he could use the hair since it was his trademark. A lot more people disagreed, so Tony has now released a new campaign poster. I just hope his blonde hair critics will love him now
 

"Why I Leased My Jet for $9.3 million Arms Cash Saga " - Ayo Oritsejafor


                                   
President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Pastor Ayo Oristejafor yesterday reiterated that he is not a party to the $9.3 million arms cash saga even though he owns the jet that ferried the money to South Africa earlier this month.He also explained that he leased the jet in “order to ameliorate the cost of maintenance of the aircraft.”

Oritsejafor was speaking at an emergency meeting of the expanded National Executive Council (NEC) of CAN in Abuja, but his speech was emailed to reporters in Kaduna through the Secretary General of CAN, Reverend Musa Asake, DailyTrust reports.

“So far, I have refrained from making any direct public response pending the time I will brief the leaders of the church and explain my position on the issue to them. I believe
that the primary institution that I owe any explanation to is the church. I thank everyone who has stood by me these past days even though I have not undertaken any public defence of myself.
I am particularly appreciative of the valuable support of the Catholic Church in refuting a distorted news item by mischievous elements in the media. I wish to also assure you that I will not do anything to tarnish the image of God.

The management of Egypt Air, which was accused of maltreatment and wrongful deportation of a Nigerian medical student, Joshua Kunle Abdul-Azeez, studying in Ukraine and tearing his Nigerian international passport has admitted making a mistake and offered to compensate the student.

Amber Rose Divorce: She Says Wiz Khalifa is a Serial Cheater





TMZ broke the story that Amber filed legal docs on Wednesday and it's a bitter breakup, with each accusing the other of cheating. Sources connected with Amber now tell TMZ that since the beginning of Wiz's tour in July she strongly suspected he was stepping out.

Amber's telling friends - she wanted to join Wiz on the tour but he came up with a panoply of excuses, the most frequent of which she should stay home with their 1-year-old. She also says he tried to show dominance by telling her he's the bread winner and he needed to be left alone to make money and she need to stay home. BTW ... we understand that doesn't make a lot of sense, but that's what she said.

2015 Election will be Tough, We Want to Take Over ––Buhari

 

Ex-Military Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari has predicted that next year’s general elections will be tough and urged all APC members to collect their voters’ card and hold on to them.

He called on Nigerians not to vote for treasury looters in 2015, saying provision of free amenities is possible. He rolled out the party’s package for Nigerians; improved infrastructure, water, electricity and improved education system for Nigerians, under a new government run by the APC.
In Buhari's words: “The next five months will be very tough, because we want to take over the government, from Councillorship to Presidency. 
“Next election is going to be different and next year is going to be tough because APC is ready for change in Nigeria. We will stop corruption; no more will anybody put government money into private pockets."

Meanwhile, the All Progressives congress, APC, has said “Nigeria is terribly asleep and is having a serious nightmare,” and will continue to experience such as long as the ruling party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, remained at the helms of affairs.

Boko Haram Commander Abubakar Shekau is Still Alive

 

Borno-born journalist said to be a close ally of Boko Haram, Ahmad Salkida, has dismissed the report that the dreaded commander of the Boko Haram sect has been killing by troops in Konduga area.

Salkida, who is on self-exile in the United Arab Emirates over alleged threats to his life, said he has it good on “authority” that Abubakar Shekau was hale and hearty. Salkida claimed that Shekau, who he had discussions with recently during a failed attempt to negotiate an end to the incarceration of the Chibok girls was not the one in a picture circulating online.
“Mark my words: I have it on authority that Shekau is well and alive. The picture going round is not the person who torments us with his group,” the journalist stated categorically.
So far, no town taken by Boko Haram has been reclaimed by the Nigeria Army. They were only able to prevent Konduga and Maiduguri from falling to the terrorists. Success in the war against terrorism should be felt by those that are affected the most, and not just in the media."

Kris
 and Bruce Jenner's divorce settlement was probably less than you think, because multiple sources tell us ... the pot they divided was approximately $60 million.

We're told dividing the assets was "easy and amicable" ... almost all of their earnings were put in a joint account, and that includes their TV profits, Bruce's speaking engagements and their ownership in various businesses.

 Sunnygist got it from entertainment daily that... lawyers were not involved in the property settlement ... it was all done with the help of their business managers. Each filed legal docs in pro per -- meaning without lawyers.

Part of the settlement ... Kris gets the Hidden Hills estate. Bruce gets to keep his Sherwood Country Club membership.

There's no spousal support.  

Chibok Girls Released | They Were Not Released

 

The story travelled at the speed of light after Nigeria's Defence spokesman, General Chri Olukola, without his usual diligent double-checking process, confirmed that two buses loaded with Chibok Girls were driven into the Maimalari Barracks in Maiduguri, Borno State, on Tuesday. Many people were so happy, they've already started celebrating the feat on social media platforms.

Funny enough, moments later, the same Gen. Olukolade retracted his earlier statement while speaking with the BBC. He said, actually, the girls that he said were released are not the abducted Chibok girls. 

So, who are the girls that were driven into the Barrack in 2 buses? Who drove them? We are waiting!

Isaac Owusu Bempah of Glorious Word Ministry International (GWMI) in Accra Ghana has accused Prophet T.B Joshua of human sacrifice. The pastor while on Okay FM yesterday on the Morning show said;

‘These are evil hands at work because I know people who have to make human sacrifices in order to be promoted in the spiritual realm…I know some people will vilify me for making this known.’


He also accused the SCOAN prophet for coming to Ghana some time ago and causing the death of four people during a programme he held.

Photo: South African Football Coach Nabbed At Lagos Airport For Drugs




                                    
A 38-year old South African Football coach, Steven Darlugar has been arrested by the men of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, for trying to smuggle drug out of Nigeria to South Africa.


Sadly, Darlugar said they promised to pay him $6,000 if he succeeded in smuggling the drugs.
He had neatly packaged the drugs weighing 1.54 kilogrammes in a compartment before the officials at the airport unravelled his gimmick during the screening of Arik Air passengers on board to South Africa.


Upon interrogation, Darlugar, a married father of one confessed he was under financial pressure to cope with peers and he had worked hard to make it, but it all turned futile.


But $6,000 is too small for anyone to risk his/her life just for smuggling drugs, come on. Really feel sad for him. God help us all.

Why Must Presidency use Oritsejafor's Private Jet to Buy Arms?


This is the question being asked by Dino Melaye and other well-meaning Nigerians. The Presidential fleet under the control of President Goodluck Jonathan alone has over 10 aircraft.
