We Tried To Escape Thrice But Were Dealt With – Kidnapped Lagos Schoolboys

One of the six students of Lagos State Model College, Igbonla, Epe, said they attempted to escape from their captors three times in the creek. The victim, who preferred not to be named, said when the kidnappers refused to release them after collecting ransom from their parents, they decided to escape. According to him, in the first attempt, they all agreed to run, but because they did not know the terrain they decided to stay back in order not to endanger their lives.

He said: “The second attempt was when we heard that they wanted to use us for sacrifice to appease their gods, we all came together and said we were going to run, but we could not make it out of fear.

But we made another attempt. “On that fateful day, the kidnappers had gone out, but the guard who was with us in the camp had slept off.
I went to where he was sleeping and took his phone to call my father to ask if we could escape.
“When I called him, he was surprised and warned us not to take such risk, because will could get killed in the process.
Aside that, we did not care about the consequences in as much we were out of the creek. But, again, we dropped the idea because one of us was reluctant to support it, coupled with my father’s advice. “When they were making the efforts to escape the kidnappers were not aware.
“When they called our parents to demand another ransom but our parents refused to bring the money as promised.
That night, they brought us out and started beating us and put their phone on speaker for our parents to hear our cries. They also threatened to sacrifice us to their gods.
“The night they beat us, one of us started vomiting blood while the second person also fell sick.
When the person they assigned to guard us noticed the two of them, he immediately informed the leader of the kidnappers who brought a nurse the following day to take care of those who took ill.”
The boy explained that in the creek, when those who took ill were not getting better, one of them suddenly became a prayer warrior.
He added: “When the kidnappers noticed the way he prayed, they nicknamed him pastor. I was called the general because I was the only one who confronted them when we were not satisfied with what they gave us.
“Our first week in the creek was hell, we slept on palm fronds. We also urinated and defecated in the open.
But when our parents promised to pay them, they started taking good care of us. They gave us Eba and crayfish for two weeks, but most of the food they gave us was always their leftover.”
The victim said that it was a bitter experience living in the creek for two months. He, however, said when the kidnappers noticed that police were after them, they were moved from Lagos to another creek in Ondo State.
“A week before we were released, the kidnappers told us that we should thank the Ondo State government for intervening in the matter. From then we didn’t sleep at night, we were always praying for God’s intervention.
“A night before our release, the leader of the kidnappers came into our camp and appealed to us that we should forgive them for abducting us, that it was the situation of the country that pushed them into crime.
They promised never to return to our school again.
“Very early on the day they wanted to release us, they gave us clean to bath for first time and asked us to prepare that they were handing us over to the Ondo State deputy governor and the state commissioner of police who later brought us to Lagos.”

My Dream Man must love Sex – Linda Ikeji

Popular Nigerian female blogger, Linda Ikeji, recently decided to discuss the things she requires in a man she would love to marry. According to the ace blogger, any man who would finally claim her heart and eventually take her to the altar must be dexterous and highly skillful at the things of the inner room.
When asked if she has been getting proposals from suitors as well as what she requires in a man she would love to marry, Ikeji, who has diligently put in a decade of her lifetime into the now proliferated trade of blogging, dropped some interesting points. “I’m getting quite a lot of proposals. You know people say when a woman is successful, men run away, it’s a lie, that is when they chase you the more. But unfortunately, I haven’t seen what I’m looking for. To be honest, I keep telling people, it’s not like men are scarce, it’s the type of man some of us are looking for that is scarce, if I want to marry next year I can, but he would not be the kind of man I want.
“I want a man that I can look up to, someone that inspires me, someone that would push me, someone that would motivate me, somebody that has had some success in his own career path, then I can look up to him and be like “wow”, a man that teaches me and I can learn from. I’m inspired by successful people, someone like Tyler Perry, I can’t wait to meet him
“He must be successful, he must be a good man, in the sense that he must be supportive of me, if he tries to stifle me then I’m out. Lastly, he has to be a man that likes sex and must be very good at it”, she stated.

Russian President, Vladimir Putin named as World’s Richest man

Move over, Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos. You are not the richest folks on earth. The real claimant to the throne, is Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, if the account of a US Financier, Bill Browder, is correct.
Browder reportedly told senators last week that the Russian President is richer than both Mr. Bezos and Mr Gates combined.
According to Newsweek, the chief executive officer of Hermitage Capital Management estimated the net worth of Putin at $200 billion. Both Bezos, the Amazon.com founder and Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder are worth a combined $183 billion.
Newsweek said that Mr Browder’s company was once the largest portfolio investor in Russia and that Mr Browder was a shareholder in Gazprom, Surgutneftegas and other Russian state-run enterprises in the 1990s.
Around that time Putin reportedly made a deal with Russian businessmen that made him the “richest man in the world”.
Mr. Putin’s personal fortune has been the subject of intense debate and speculation in recent years.
Newsweek reports that, according to Mr Putin’s official asset form – a mandatory public disclosure for all Russian government officials – he earns $133,000 a year and has a modest apartment in Moscow.
Last week Mr Bezos briefly became the world’s richest person as a result of a surge in Amazon’s share price ahead of the e-retail giant’s quarterly earnings report. Shares later tailed off again, however, putting Mr Gates back in the top spot. Mr Bezos owns around 17 per cent of Amazon’s shares.
Mr. Gates was also named the world’s richest person in this year’s Forbes ranking. That publication in March estimated his wealth to be around $86 billion, ahead of second-placed Berkshire Hathaway chief executive Warren Buffett, whose fortune was cited to be around $75.6 billion. (NAN)

Niger Delta Militants set to declare Niger Delta Republic on October 1st


A Militant group, Adaka Boro Avengers (ABA) has said that they will declare Niger Delta Republic on October 1, 2017

In statement by its Spokesperson,  spokesperson Edmos Ayayeibo, the group stated that the Nigerian State has lost its unity, and to save lives on both sides, the Nigerian government should maintain peace, compose themselves or face total war.
The Statement reads;
“The October 1 declaration of a republic in the Niger Delta is sacrosanct because Nigeria has lost its unity. To save lives on both sides, the Nigerian government should maintain peace, compose themselves or face total war.”
“Why Would The Arewa Youths And Some Northerners Called For Re-Arrest Of Nnamdi Kanu Knowing What The Implications Would Be. That Is Not Possible And The Nigerian Government Will Never Dare It Again.
“We The Avengers Have Always Carried Out Our Words. When We Said We Would Crumble The Economy, We Did It. And Now We Are Asking All Northerners And Westerners To Leave The Niger Delta Region For Their Own Good. This Is Not 2016 And Now We Have More Arsenals, More Powerful Than The Nigerian Government.”
“We Are Also Using This Medium To Call On All The Multinational Corporations To Leave The Region In Their Own Interests And Peace; Because Their Continued Stay In The Region Has Not Done Any Good To The People Of The Niger Delta. Also To The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Kindly Withdraw Your Oil Survey Teams And Your Technical Workers From Our Communities, While The Tension In The Region Is Boiling Up.
“Failure To Adhere To These Warnings, We Shall Leave No Stone Unturned. Because All Avengers Groups In The Region Are United Now And Our New Focus Is On Any Multinational Corporations And Any NNPC Infrastructures, Especially The Pipelines And NNPC Filling Stations Across The Country.”
