The Israeli military has discovered the bodies of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped on June 12, in the West Bank. Their abduction shocked the nation and triggered a full-scale violent offensive against the Palestinians that is unlikely to stop even now the bodies have been unearthed. That's the view of Diana Buttu, a Palestinian lawyer. The remains of Gilad Shaer, Naftali Frenkel, both 16, and Eyal Yifrah, 19, were found in a field near Hebron, the largest city in the West Bank, not far from where they were allegedly abducted

Gov Elechi talks about rescuing Nigeria. ( Do you agree with him?)

Gov Elechi wrote-
“When the airways collapsed, they did not rescue Nigeria. Jonathan revived the airports and allowed the private sectors to operate. And now, we have a total result,” he said. They did not come to rescue us. When the Nigerian railways collapsed, they did not rescue the railways until Jonathan revived the railway system.  
“When the power sector was in comatose, they said nothing about it until the road map was given by the current president and we see positive changes happening, they say they want to rescue Nigerians.
“When the economy was so bad, they did not rescue Nigeria, now that World Bank has found out that Nigeria has over taken South Africa and has become number one economy of the continent that is the time they are rescuing Nigeria,”

Chidi Lloyd messed, cuffed like a common criminal and taken to unknown location, lawyer claims

Emenike Ebete, counsel to Rivers State Lawmaker, Chidi Lloyd, says he fears for his client’s life based on claims that the police have hidden him in an unknown location.

Ebete told Nigerian Telegraph that he wants the public to be watchful so that what happened in the case of the late Moshood Kashimawo Abiola did not repeat itself.
“In Abuja, they told us they were transporting him to Port Harcourt to charge him for conspiracy and didn’t say more than that. When we got to Port Harcourt, there were more than five hundred policemen waiting to escort him to the command office. From there, he was moved to the Police officers’ mess and handcuffed like a common criminal. Now I do not know where he is,” Ebete said.
