Former military Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, who served Abacha as Executive Chairman of the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) has come under some embarrassment over his comments in 2008 that Abacha never stole as new Abacha loot has been traced.

‘Anti-Rape’ Underwear invented by Indian Student which gives Attackers Electric Shock ( see Photo)

Considering the astronomical rape incidents in India, I am not shocked this underwear is coming out of India.
Women must do whatever it takes to protect our dignity as human, even if it involves shocking or killing attackers. Yeah, that is how I feel as a woman when it comes to rape. You try me, I will kill you with my last breath.
The UK Sun Reports;
THREE engineering students have come up with “anti-rape” underwear that gives an electric shock to attackers AND alerts cops.
The trio designed a camisole underwired with a technology that can deliver up to 82 electric shocks.
The garment has pressure sensors sewn in around the bust area that detect groping hands and send out the shock – which has the strength of a stun gun.
The product also sends a message to police as well as to the family of the victim.
The undergarment – dubbed Society Harnessing Equipment or SHE – was created by trainee automobile engineers from Chennai, India after the fatal gang rape of a 23-year-old physiotherapy student on a New Delhi bus last December. See Another Picture After The Break

Why Boko Haram targets Lagos

More facts emerged yesterday on the plot by Boko Haram to bomb Lagos. The main reason for the planned attack on Lagos, the “commercial nerve centre of Nigeria,” is its booming economy. The motive is simple: Attack Lagos and Nigeria grinds to a halt. One of the service chiefs reportedly confirmed at the Executive Session held with the Senate last Wednesday on the state of insecurity in the country that the threat to bomb Lagos was real.

He listed five reasons for the plot. The sect, it was gathered, reckons that the economy of the North is already in ruins with the incessant bombing of its major commercial cities including Kano, Kaduna and Maiduguri in Borno State. Kano is no longer the thriving commercial nerve centre of the North, while the Joint Task Force (JTF) occupies every 10 kilometres in Maiduguri, making commercial activities difficult.

“They certainly deserve better than this” – NLC state position on pension crisis

We find it necessary to address you today on the shameful and painful circumstances in which our retired workers who are pensioners have found themselves.
For quite some time now, the administration of pension funds has been enmeshed in unprecedented corruption with some public officers, institutions of government and banks generously helping themselves to the said funds, and in the process, deny pensioners their pension. This has thrown pensioners, majority of whom are our members into penury, with some dying in queues of protracted and unending verification exercises that yield little or no result.

Delta State was usually busy through last week. The epicenter was the Warri City Stadium where the maiden Africa Youth Athletics Championships ran its full course.
There weren’t any untoward developments for the cynics to celebrate. But rather those who are  genuinely concerned about athletics development in Africa and Nigeria in particular thumped their chests for a job well done. Though organisation was not anywhere near perfect, there is a note book full of misidentifies, but  it was more like “all is well that ends well”.
