Lagos and Abuja have been listed among the top four cities in Africa with high cost of living, according to an index released by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) on 25 African cities.
The key results of cost of living per city by the EIU reveal that Abuja is the second most expensive city with total expenditure score of 107.4, next to Luanda with a score of 131.8, while Lagos comes fourth with 100.8 total expenditure, as Addis Ababa came last with a score of 60.8.
Two suspects are currently telling the Abia State Police Command what they know about the death of a 16-year-old girl, whose name was simply given as Esther. The decomposing body of Esther, said to be from Ebonyi State was found in an uncompleted building around the Cattle Market, Gariki, in Lokpanta, Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia State.
Until her death, Esther was alleged to be a girl of easy virtue, a trade she was said to have plied at the Lokpanta Cattle Market.
The suspects, Uchenna Okorie and Levi Nwankwo, are currently with the Criminal Investigation Department, CID, where they are helping the police in their investigation into what happened to Esther.
Hamza Al-Mustapha, the dreaded former Chief Security Officer to late Gen Sani Abacha is still on his thank you tour across Nigeria to salute the few men (and woman) that were on his side during his long trying times of over 14 years. But what's the connection with Asari Dokubo in all these?

The former Chief Security Officer to late Abacha said:
God used him to stabilise the country from the possible turmoil that could have followed Abacha’s death.Continue.............
Mr. Dayo Adeyeye, a governorship aspirant in the Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State, has described the rejection of the consensus arrangement proposed by President Goodluck Jonathan to select the party’s governorship candidate in 2014 election as gross indiscipline.
“It smacks of high level of indiscipline for any aspirant to be kicking against a position openly canvassed by Mr. President, who is the leader of the party. Would such an aspirant respect the President and other party leaders if he or she is picked as the party’s candidate and he or she becomes the governor?”Mr Adeyeye said this in a statement issued on his behalf by the Director-General of his campaign organisation, Bisi Kolawole, in Ado Ekiti on Sunday.
