Meet the only Nigerian journalist with access to Boko Haram flown home to negotiate with Terrorist

 Nigerian journalist, Ahmad Salkida, who previously worked for Daily Trust and Premium Times and reported extensively on Boko Haram, fled Nigeria to Dubai 2 years ago after being accused to be a Boko Haram sympathizer. He explained he fled after'his life and that of his family became endangered'after security agencies started to mistake his in-depth reporting on the terrorist group as proof of his closeness to them. He went underground for many weeks before finally fleeing Nigeria. Salkida was perhaps the only Nigerian journalist/civilian to have access to Boko Haram, and he explained during the time that he'd rejected Boko Haram's many requests for him to publish exclusive interviews and materials for them.

Anyway according to new reports, the Nigerian government flew him home 2-3 weeks ago to negotiate with Boko Haram on their behalf, since he's the only real civilian who has allegedly seen Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau and emerge alive. He reportedly came home after the Nigerian government assured him that he will not be arrested. (See his tweets).  After the break.

Stay away from unprotected $-ex, doctor warns Vast of Bracket group

Vast and Smash became popular with their hit banger, Yori Yori. As such, it was a big blow to his fans when the story that he was diagnosed with cancer hit the newsstand.

Some pictures of him looking very ill went viral and the singer said the development saddened him.

The governor disclosed this on Thursday while receiving thousands of delegates from Etche ethnic group, who had paid him a solidarity visit at government house in Port Harcourt in support of his administration.
”Any area that has produced governor before should go and sleep and allow other areas to produce,’ Mr Amaechi said. He called for the setup of Etche Enlightenment Committee to educate and mobilise the people on the need to exercise their voting power in the next elections.  He insisted that the people’s vote must count since that is one way the Rivers people will elect their leaders independently without external influence in 2015.

Kajola Terrace Apartments for completion in 18 months

Kajola Investment Plc and Animasaun Group are set to deliver the Kajola Terrace Apartments, which comprises 12 units of four-bedroom flats in Ikeja, GRA in the next 18 months.

The project is a joint venture between Kajola Investment which provided the land and the Animasaun Group brings its expertise into play in the area of funds mobilisation and construction.

The Chairman, Kajola Investment Plc, Prof. Wale Omole, said during the turning of the sod of the luxury terrace apartments on Tuesday in Lagos that the partners have equal stakes in the project.

According to him, the Kajola Terrace Apartments come with unique features that stand each of the units out.

He said each unit would have four bedrooms and a servant quarter, adding that “the target of the project is top executives and high profile individuals with luxury taste, as well as expatriates and corporate institutions.”

“In designing the estate, careful attention has been given to parking facilities, setbacks, airspaces, height regulations, space control, safety regulations, landscaping, recreation area and waste management system, among others,” Omole said.

He described the apartments as a test case, following which the company would move into the low income housing segment in some parts of Lagos, and later, Abuja.

On his part, the Managing Director, Animasaun Group, Dr. Dapo Animasaun, said the indigenous firm of developers decided to go into the partnership because of its belief in the viability of the project.

According to him, the serene location of the project will make it an easy attraction for upwardly mobile executives, who desire good life and value good taste and choice.

He was, however, silent on the amount to be expended on the project and the price at which each unit would be sold.

Animasaun said his firm would complete the project within 15 months, following which Kajola Investment would begin the sale of the own units.

He said his company saw it as “a delightful joint venture project” because of the calibre of people behind Kajola Investment.

“These are people who have seen it all and do not feel threatened by our ideas. On our part, we see this partnership as an opportunity to align our vibrant ideas with the experience of the promoters of Kajola Investment,” he said.
