Available statistics showed that the Assemblies of God Church has a population of over 2.6 million members worshiping in over 14,300 churches spread in Nigeria with its headquarters in Enugu, Enugu State. It has planted more than 50 missionaries in nine countries across the world with over 11,650 ministers.

However, the once peaceful members of one-fold family had been torn apart following a leadership tussle that is presently bedeviling the church. Crisis of factionalisation of the church had been lingering as two senior Reverends, Professor Paul Emeka and Dr Chidi Okoroafor have been at loggerheads, each laying claim to be the overall leader of the church, qualified to bear the designation  of General Superintendent, GS.

The issue which resulted in litigation is currently at the last bus stop –
the Supreme Court, awaiting the final arbitration. Whilst the much-expected judgement is being awaited, members of the 27 Mount Street Parish in Enugu engaged in free-for-all recently. The shameful act still centered on the crisis over who takes control of the parish which is believed to be lucrative.

Control of the parish
The drama started when Reverend Nathaniel Udeze stormed the Mount Street parish with letters of posting and other court documents empowering him to be installed as the new pastor of the parish that morning.

But he was stoutly resisted along with his team of loyalists by the current Resident pastor of the parish, Reverend Amaechi Agbo who, along with his loyalists, accused Udeze of being an “intruder”. The disagreement led to a free for all when Udeze insisted on taking over since he had been officially posted there by the leadership of the church under Rev Paul Emeka.

He went on to inform the bewildered congregation that their resident minister, Agbo, had been transferred to another Parish since May 2015. Earlier, supporters of both warring pastors were found sharing different versions of the Sunday school manual during the school which angered the supporters of the divide until the two pastors began a shouting match that eventually led to the free for all.

The fracas attracted the attention of the police who raced to the place and the church was locked up. That was not the first time members of the congregation would engage in such a show of shame. Sometime last year, precisely December 3, 2014, hell was also let loose at the national headquarters of the church located in Enugu when the two warring factions engaged in a bloody clash that left no fewer than five persons seriously injured, while four cars parked at the premises were burnt beyond recognition during the free for all that ensued.

Vanguard gathered that the clash followed the invasion of the church headquarters by the Reverend Chidi Okoroafor-led faction in a bid to forcefully take over the national secretariat of the church which had been under the control of the embattled General Superintendent, Reverend Paul Emeka and his loyalists.

Violence broke out that fateful Wednesday morning, December 3, 2014, when members of the Okoroafor faction stormed the national secretariat in several buses and attempted to gain entry into the national secretariat but were prevented by Reverend Emeka’s loyalists.

How we prevented bloodshed at the parish — PPRO
ENUGU police command said surveillance has been mounted within the vicinity of the parish until normalcy would be fully restored which is still under lock and key as at the time of this report.

Speaking to Vanguard, the State Police Command’s image maker, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, said: “Please let me correct one impression. We (Police) did not lock up any church. Ours is to ensure that there is no breakdown of law and order. What happened was that we intervened and averted what could have resulted to bloodshed.”

“If not for our timely intervention that Sunday,” he went on, “it could have been a different story. When efforts were made to bring the two factions to amicable settlement, which was not forthcoming, we gave our advice, so they locked it up and the keys are with them not with us (Police). But for now, we are monitoring the place to ensure that no unpleasant thing occurred there”.

The CAC angle:
Another angle has been added to the crisis as the Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC, had in a letter dated June 22, 2015 conveyed the withdrawal of the name of Reverend Paul Emeka from the Certificate of Incorporation earlier issued pending the final determination of the case currently pending before the Supreme Court.

Who will save the house of God from this shameful fight? I just hope reason will prevail somehow.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said he would not appoint compromised citizens and ‘hostages’ as ministers.

He said he needed decent, patriotic and hard-working technocrats as well as politicians to work with him in order to achieve his dream of repositioning the country.
“We will try as much as possible to avoid appointing hostages; by this, I mean people who have been in the system but compromised their personal and professional integrity." 


Buhari said this on Monday in a live programme, Good Morning Nigeria, on the NTA.

He said the worst thing that could happen to his administration was to get compromised persons to be in charge of institutions, adding that such people would be ineffective and unpatriotic.

The President said, “From what I have seen so far, we need very patriotic Nigerians that can work very hard with knowledgeable experience; committed Nigerians to be in charge of ministries.

“A lot of institutions in Nigeria are compromised, everybody for himself and God for all of us. It is most unfortunate. We have people, educated and experienced people, but everybody seems to be working for himself on how much they could get away with as soon as possible.

“We have to look for technocrats and politicians. We have to look out for decent people in this class to give them the responsibility of being in charge of ministries and important parastatals.

“It is taking so much time (to appoint ministers) because a number of knowledgeable people have been compromised. They have been compromised by people who will like to depend on them to damage our economy and security; a lot of them have been compromised.

“The worst thing that I think can happen is to get a compromised person to be in charge of institutions. There is no way he could be efficient or patriotic. Somebody behind the scene will be manipulating him at the expense of the nation.

“This is what we are trying to avoid and I assure you that so much damage has been done to Nigeria. We cannot rush to give this responsibility to people that have unfortunately been compromised."
“To be in opposition does not mean you have to constitute yourself to a nuisance by rushing to the press with all sorts of hot air statements. It is the quality, rather than the frequency, of your interventions that makes you relevant as an opposition in a democracy,” APC spokesman, Lai Mohammed cautioning PDP's Olisah Metuh.
Opposition is a serious business, if you can't get your acts together you can't win the trust of Nigerians
Justice Gabriel Kolawole of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court, on Monday, declined to stop the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, from taking action towards prosecuting all those behind the alleged forgery of the Senate Standing Order 2015.

The court has equally refused to restrain the office of the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, from preferring criminal charges against the culprits.
The bogus Senate Standing Order was the one that was used for the conduct of the election that saw the emergence of Senators Bukola Saraki and Ike Ekweremadu as Senate President and Deputy Senate President.
Senator Gilbert Nnaji who is representing Enugu-East Senatorial District had gone before the court with an ex-parte motion wherein he applied for a restraining order against both the IGP and the AGF.

He specifically urged the court to restrain the two respondents from taking further steps on the investigation of allegation of forgery of the Senate Standing Order 2015.

But instead of acceding to Senator Nnaji’s request, Justice Kolawole ordered the plaintiff to go and put the respondents on notice to enable them appear in court on August 4, to show cause why they should not be restrained from taking further actions against Saraki and others.
The government of Nigeria has been approached by a group that says it is a faction of the Boko Haram sect with an offer to hold peace talks, a spokesman for President Muhammadu Buhari said on Monday.

The members of the militant Islamist group have killed more than 600 people in Africa’s most populous nation in a spate of bombings and shootings since Buhari was inaugurated as president on May 29.
But it seems the much desired peace is set to happen. “A faction of the Boko Haram group came forward claiming to have the mandate to negotiate with the government,” said presidential spokesman Garba Shehu, adding that efforts were under way to “verify their claims” of having such authority.

Efforts to reach an agreement to end the violence, including a 2014 deal fostered by Chad, have repeatedly failed during the six-year insurgency waged by the group in its bid to set up a state in the northeast adhering to strict Islamic laws.

Buhari’s administration has previously said it was not averse to negotiating with the group which has killed thousands and left around 1.5 million people displaced during its insurgency.

“It is now left for them to show proof that they have the mandate, but they made it clear that they are representing a faction of Boko Haram that wants peace,” said Shehu.
To all those who love snapping little babies with all kinds of phones with heavy camera flash, please take note before you land yourself in trouble. The baby pictured above was left blind in one eye after a family friend forgot to turn off his camera flash while taking a close-up photograph of the baby boy.

Doctors said the three-month-old baby, who has not been named, has suffered irreparable damage from the flash of the camera, which was held about 10 inches away from the baby boy.

Soon after the pic was taken, the parents noticed that something was wrong with their baby's vision.
According to Daily Mail, following the incident, the baby suffered from reduced vision in his left eye and blindness in his right eye. The damage is said to be permanent and cannot be fixed with surgery.

The flash has damaged cells on the macula, the part of the eye where incoming light rays are focused.

Doctors also say parents should be careful of strong bathroom lights when their babies are taking a bath.

It is not clear whether the family friend will face any legal action following the incident.
Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has revealed that the government of Goodluck Jonathan had totally destroyed the country in many ways that Nigerians are not even aware.

Oshiomhole, who was on the entourage of President Muhammadu Buhari to the United States, said Nigeria had in Buhari a President who talked with confidence unlike “a President that is blabbing and is not sure of what the issues are.”

He said, “The PDP destroyed the country. I mean from the lips of American officials; senior officials of the State Department said one minister under PDP cornered as much as $6bn.

“The America official said even by Washington’s standard, that is earth-shattering.

“So, the PDP is a party that presided over the liquidation of our nation, destroyed all our institutions, converted the Armed Forces commanders to use them as if they were political thugs, converted the Nigerian Television Authority to a party megaphone, destroyed the Department of State Services, went after opposition as if we were rabbits to be pursued into our holes, compromised even student unions and destroyed everything that you can think of, and elevated religion to a state affair.

“Under the party, Israel became a place you visit every week; they placed pastors against mallams, placed the North against the South, the East against the West, just to retain power; elevate Obas and Obis with dollars.

“You guys (journalists) were reporting dollars that were changing hands; when the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation was spending much more money than is available to the Federation Account.

“We are a very patient people. If we were not a patient people, anybody wearing the tag of PDP ought to feel very unsafe because you are all victims — all of us here.”

He added, “Mr. Johnnie Carson, who was the Assistant Secretary of State, when we visited him in company with Senator (Bukola) Saraki, then as the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum — that was at the eve of President Obama’s first visit to Africa — and we went to complain, ‘why is Nigeria not on the list?’

“What he said, for me, was quite instructive compared to what he said last week. Then I was present when he said ‘you know, we, who see ourselves not just as friends of Nigeria, each time we think there is light at the end of the tunnel and it is time to encourage Nigeria to build on it, you would wake up the following day under President Jonathan to find out that even the tunnel had been removed'."
He spoke with State House correspondents after meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
For those wondering why President Muhammadu Buhari is meeting with the House of Reps but ignoring the Senate, it is because there was election in the House but a crook method played out in the Senate.

After a long struggling, running into weeks, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila who lost the position of House of Reps Speaker to Yakubu Dogara by just 8 votes, has emerged the Majority of the 8th House.

From what OluFamous.Com gatherd, Gbajabiamila preferred to be majority leader than a mere deputy to the speaker. As Majority Leader, he is the chief coordinator of activities in the House.

Others who got positions as Principal Officers are:
Hon. Alhassan Dogowa as the Chief Whip, Hon. Baba Jibrin as the Deputy Leader and Hon. Pally Iriase as Deputy Chief Whip.

The position of Minority Leader went to PDP's Hon. Leo Ogor; Deputy Minority Leader, Chukwuma Onyema; Minority Whip, Yakubu Umaru and Deputy Minority Whip, Binta Bello.

The South-East still got something - Deputy Minority Leader.

The announcement attracted laud ovation from members. Gbajabiamila's team forth a good fight. Kudos!
Lol. Nigerians have no chill. They are now after Sen. Dino Melaye for escorting Mrs Toyin Saraki to the EFCC office and allegedly carrying something for her. See some tweets after the cut..

 
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, has died at the age of 85. Family sources say he died at about 5pm yesterday after a brief illness.

A 15-year-old boy lured an 8-year-old girl into his apartment and killed her before hiding her body in a recycling bin at the housing complex for artists where they lived, authorities said Tuesday.
Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel told reporters that Madyson Middleton went willingly into the apartment and was probably dead even before she was reported missing Sunday evening.

The boy, who police say knew the girl as a neighborhood acquaintance, was arrested on suspicion of murder, Vogel said.
The police chief would not discuss a motive and declined to give details on the suspect's background or the manner in which the girl was slain.

Madyson's disappearance and death has shaken the unique artists' community called Tannery Arts Center on the outskirts of this beach town. The center is a public-private nonprofit project that includes 100 affordable loft apartments for artists and their families, a cafe and dance and art studios.

The suspect and his alleged victim knew each other, he said.
"We lost not one kid, but two kids over the weekend, and both parents are in an absolute state of shock," said Scudder, who described the suspect as admired, well-liked and well-rounded.

Federal and local law enforcement searched the area surrounding the complex Sunday night and throughout Monday before finding the girl's body that night.
The suspect, whose name is not being released because he is a juvenile, was nearby when the body was discovered, and officers found evidence in the apartment that links him to the slaying, the police chief said.
Prosecutors are considering bringing charges against the boy as an adult, Santa Cruz District Attorney Jeffrey Rosell said.

As he was taken into custody, his mother rushed at police officers in floods of tears, asking why her son was being taken away in handcuffs.
 
It stunned neighbors who insisted the boy had a good reputation in the community
On Tuesday morning, the trash-collection area where Madyson's body was found remained roped off. Visitors stopped at a walkway memorial to pay respects with candles, bouquets of flowers and stuffed animals.

Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel revealed details at a Tuesday press conference.
Young Madyson 'was lured to the suspect's apartment willingly.'
'Additionally, we've determined that Maddy was murdered inside of the suspect's apartment,' he told reporters. 
'She was then carried downstairs to the recycle bin, where she was concealed.'
The suspect acted alone 'and not in concert with anyone else.'
Her body was found at 7:55pm on Monday.
"My staff was so hopeful we were going to find her alive. And when the news came last night that she was not alive," Vogel said, "it was horrible." 
 Vogel added that the girl's body was 'concealed in a way that wasn't obvious or readily apparent.'
 
The 15-year-old boy who was at the complex while crews searched for Middleton and is believed to have helped in the search, was arrested around the same time the girl's body was found, according to Vogel.
 
Hundreds of volunteers had searched surrounding areas to look for Madyson, who was last seen Sunday afternoon. She had been seen riding her new Razor scooter in the courtyard, but around 5 p.m., her mother realized she was gone.

Police twice conducted a door-to-door search of the entire apartment complex, as well as a homeless shelter across the street. Vogel said he did not know if the boy's apartment was immediately searched, but they believe the girl was killed before they got the call.

Officers discovered the body on a second, more thorough search of the complex, Vogel said.

A New Mexico dispatcher has been removed from duty after telling a panicked 911 caller who was trying to save the life of a shooting victim to "deal with it yourself."
Matthew Sanchez was reassigned after officials became aware of the call, fire officials said.
"An internal investigation has been initiated," Albuquerque Fire Chief David Downey said Monday in a statement. "I am taking the allegation very seriously."
The call was made after Jaydon Chavez-Silver, 17, was shot in June as he watched other teens play cards at a friend's house in Albuquerque. He later died. Police have not named a suspect and have made no arrests.

In the recording obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, the panicked caller snaps at the dispatcher for repeatedly asking whether Chavez-Silver is breathing.

During the call, the female says, "I am keeping him alive!"

Sanchez asks, "Is he not breathing?"

The caller responds, "Barely!"

She is then heard frantically encouraging Chavez-Silver to keep breathing.
"One more breath! One more breath!" she is heard telling the teen. "There you go Jaydon. One more breath! There you go Jaydon. Good job! Just stay with me, OK? OK?"

The dispatcher then asks again, "Is he breathing?"

The female responded, "He is barely breathing, how many times do I have to fuc#ing tell you?"

"OK, you know what ma'am? You can deal with it yourself. I am not going to deal with this, OK?" the dispatcher says.
It seemed from the tape that Sanchez hung up on the caller in mid-sentence.
 
"No, my friend is dying .," she said as the call ended. But the dispatcher had already hung up.

Jaydon only just arrived to the party when someone either walked or drove past the home and opened fire.
The teen was sitting on a kitchen counter at the party when at least one of the estimated six shots firec into the house struck him.
He later died in a hospital.
A spokesman for Jaydon's family says they're astonished at the call, but want to focus on finding their son's killer.

'We heard rumors about the 911 operator hanging up on the caller when Jaydon was shot bit had no other information. After hearing the call today, it is heartbreaking to listen to.
 
'Right now, we just want to find the people responsible for this violent, deadly crime. We have set up a reward fund at Bank of the West and it is up to $4000.

Last Friday at about 7 am, Kazeem Olajide allegedly poisoned his 41-day-old baby,Zainab Olajide, in a desperate attempt to divorce his wife. The incident happened at Toluwalase Estate, Ijoko-Abule, in the Lemode area of Ogun State.
It was learnt that the mother, Abosede Ogundare, had left Zainab with Kazeem to sweep the compound only to come back and met the baby with foams gushing out from her mouth.

 Ogundare alerted neighbours to the incident having found a bottle containing pesticide with her husband.

Zainab was said to have been rushed to a hospital in the community, where she eventually died.
 
It was also learnt that the suspect, who hails from Abeokuta, Ogun State, attempted to flee, but was held by residents, while the landlord of the house reported the case to the monarch of the community, Oba Solomon Sokunbi. The father was handed over to policemen at the Agbado Police Division after he confessed to the crime before the monarch.
 
A resident, who identified himself only as Biodun, said Kazeem had been threatening to divorce his wife before the baby’s untimely death.
 
He said:
“He doesn’t love the woman and has been trying to divorce her. He poisoned the innocent baby to actualise his mission. They recently moved to this estate. She was their only child.”
The landlord of the house, who wanted to remain anonymous, said the suspect had denied being Zainab’s father prior to the incident.
 
He said,
“Three days before the incident, Kazeem was looking for a pair of his slippers. When he did not find it on time, he started raining curses. I called him by his daughter’s name, and tried to caution him, but he warned me not to call him by her name again. It was when the incident happened that I realised he might have intentionally killed the child.”
Sokunbi, the Oba of Ijoko-Lemode, said Kazeem owned up to the act, claiming that he was pushed by the devil. He said he had been following the case to ensure that the suspect was brought to justice.
He said,
“It was the landlord who came to report the case to me and I directed my chiefs to bring him and the wife to the palace. I asked the husband and he confessed. He said it was the handiwork of the devil.
“I called the police from the Agbado Police Division to arrest him. They said he had been transferred to the state command headquarters. I have been following the case. This is a pure murder case and I want the police to duly prosecute the suspect and let him face the law.”
The monarch added that Kazeem’s wife told him in the presence of his chiefs that she saw the bottle with him two days before the incident.
He said:
“The woman thought the bottle contained herbs. She said she left the child with him to sweep the compound, only to return and met Zainab gasping and foaming in the mouth. She said she smelled pesticide in the baby’s mouth.”
The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed that the case had been transferred to the command headquarters, adding that Zainab’s remains had been deposited in a mortuary.
Adejobi said,
“The corpse of the baby has been deposited in a mortuary. The case has been transferred to the Department of Criminal Investigation for further investigation.
“We have the suspect with us and he is going to be properly investigated. He and others found culpable in the course of our investigation will be charged to court.”

According to the police report just released by Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport officials yesterday, “some bad choices” resulted in 25-year-old Damarias Cockerham’s bypassing

Transportation Security Administration checkpoints and boarding an American Airlines flight to Guatemala without a ticket Sunday afternoon.


And, the report says, TSA agents did nothing to stop him.

The Louisiana-born insurance agent from Garland was arrested Sunday and charged with criminal trespassing. But the report makes it very clear how he managed to get on the plane sans a photo ID or a ticket: He simply walked through a Terminal D checkpoint “without being stopped by a TSA agent.”

He then ran onto a American Airlines flight bound for Guatemala City and refused to get off until it became clear the flight wouldn’t be leaving with him on board.

The police report says that by the time officers arrived at Terminal D’s Gate 17, Cockerham was walking away. At that point he was detained, and the questioning began. But it wasn’t easy, according to the police report, which says Cockerham “began crying and would not cooperate or answer any of our questions.”

According to the report, when an officer asked Cockerham how he managed to get on the plane without an ID or a ticket, he simply responded, “I walked.”

Officials in the airport’s master control room, where cameras are monitored, confirmed that Cockerham was never stopped despite signs “indicating that entry to the sterile area of the terminal is restricted to ticketed passengers with valid identification.”

When asked why he was trying to go to Guatemala, Cockerham told officers “he didn’t want his girlfriend going down there and being with the wrong guy.” When asked how he knew she was on the flight, Cockerham said he “looked at the board.”

One of the officers asked Cockerham how he got to the airport. The 25-year-old said he drove and left his car parked along the curb. Officers took his keys and got a K9 unit to search the vehicle “as a precautionary measure due to Cockerham’s demeanor and reluctance to answer questions.” The dog “exhibited a positive response for the presence of energetic materials.”

In the report, an officer says he asked Cockerham if there was anything dangerous in the car. At that point, says the report, “He stated he made some bad choices.” Officers formed a perimeter around the car, but a search ultimately failed to turn up anything considered dangerous; that is, they didn’t find explosives. Cockerham was taken to the airport jail, and his car was towed.

In a statement sent to The Dallas Morning News on Monday, TSA Regional Public Affairs Manager Carrie Harmon said the agency is “reviewing the incident and is working closely with the airport, local law enforcement and stakeholders to ensure that all of our checkpoints at DFW reflect optimal security configurations.”

Harmon also said TSA immediately “made adjustments” to the DFW screening area and added more barriers. She said the agency “is working to identify other long-term solutions that may require physical adjustments to the area.”

The Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, in Rivers State, Mrs. Gesila Khan, yesterday, denied allegation by the All Progressives Congress, APC, that she was bribed with N700 million to rig elections in the state in favour of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

 In a statement by her lawyer, Mr Selekeowei Larry, SAN, the Rivers REC said she never received such money from anyone or party as claimed by the APC.
 
She dared the APC to produce her statement of account that allegedly contained the huge sum of money, Mrs. Khan, insisted that she carried out her duty in accordance with the law and did not take side with any group, political party or persons.
 
Meanwhile, the family of Mrs Khan of Peretoru, Bayelsa State,  has condemned what its described as the arrest and harassment of their daughter by the Department of State Services, DSS.
 
A statement in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State by the family through their representative, Mr. Okubama Johnbull, raised alarm over her poor health.
 
The family which appealed to the human rights community and public spirited individuals to come to their aid over the unlawful arrest, expressed displeasure over the DSS, stating that the arrest of the REC under any guise was uncalled for and vindictive.
 
According to the family:
“As a woman who was diagnosed of hypertension and diabetic, she was denied access to her drugs. It is a well known fact that all matters or issues concerning the past general elections across the country are presently being   handled by various electoral tribunals.
“We wonder why the REC of Rivers State, Mrs. Khan was singled out for victimization and intimidated by DSS, as all issues concerning the past general elections are before competent electoral tribunals set up by laws of the country.”
The family called on President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene and call the DSS to order and allow due process and the rule of law to prevail.
 
Denying the allegation levelled against her, Mrs. Khan’s  lawyer  said  “My client wishes to place it on record that she did not at anytime collect bribe from anyone and she does not have such money in her account as alleged by the APC. We therefore, challenge the APC or anyone who has her bank account containing that sum of money to produce it.”
 
Khan described the allegation against her as “ridiculous, baseless and a calculated attempt  to tarnish her hard-earned reputation.”
 
She said  that instead of commending her for serving the country, the APC rather chose to vilify her unjustifiably, adding that the DSS, never said that it found the alleged bribe money in her bank account.
 
She challenged the APC to tell the world the source of the “malicious information.”

Terrence Howard's ex-wife,Michelle Ghent, just filed a lawsuit, claiming he beat her within an inch of her life while on vacation in August 2013.
According to TMZ:
Michelle Ghent claims she and Terrence were at a rental house in Costa Rica in 2013 when they began arguing and he grabbed her by the neck, pushed her against the bathroom wall and began strangling her. 
She says he threatened to kill her and then mule kicked her. 
Ghent filed the lawsuit just 1 day before the statute of limitations ran. 
Terrence has said it was mutual combat, claiming Ghent pepper spayed him during the fight.
A badly decomposed body was discovered on Monday in a suitcase near a dumpster in the city of SeaTac, Washington, the second time since May that human remains have been found stuffed into luggage in the Seattle area.

The body was discovered at about 8:30 a.m. when a maintenance worker came across the suitcase at an apartment complex in SeaTac, home to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, King County Sheriff's spokesman Stan Seo said.

The worker became suspicious and called police, who opened the bag and found the remains of a person, in such a decomposed state that the age and gender could not immediately be determined, Seo said.

The body was turned over to the King County Medical Examiner's Office for further examination, he said.

In mid-June law enforcement officials asked for the public's help in solving the mystery behind a woman's body found in a suitcase and left near a river outside of Seattle.

That suitcase, discovered on May 27 near the Green River Bridge in Kent, contained the body of a white woman believed to be in her 50s or 60s who likely died the first week of May, the King County Sheriff said in a statement at the time.

The woman, who was described as small in stature and dressed in what appeared to be sleeping clothes, had suffered no major injuries and it was unclear if she was killed or died of natural causes. An autopsy found she was properly nourished but suffered from Cirrhosis of the liver.

Seo said investigators did not believe that the two cases were related.

A female rapist has been found guilty of running a paedophile ring which subjected five young children to sexual and physical abuse over more than a decade.
Ten people - including six women - were on trial accused of the child sex abuse which is said to have centred around Marie Black, 34, of Norwich.


She denied 26 offences at Norwich Crown Court but today, after 19 hours of deliberations and a three-month trial, the jury convicted her of all but three counts.
She was found guilty of offences including rape, conspiracy to rape and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
Black sobbed uncontrollably in the dock as the verdicts were delivered. 
 
Michael Rogers, 53, from Romford, Essex, was also found guilty of 14 counts including cruelty, rape and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
 
Jason Adams, 43, a former cleaner at Norwich and Norfolk University Hospital, was found guilty of 13 similar counts.
 
Carol Stadler, 59, from Norwich, was found guilty of assault causing actual bodily harm but cleared of nine other charges, including serious sexual assaults.
 
The remaining defendants - Anthony Stadler, 63, Nicola Collins, 36, Andrew Collins, 52, Judith Fuller, 31, Denise Barnes, 43, and Kathleen Adams, 85, all from Norwich - were cleared of all counts.
 
On some occasions, the adults threw parties and played card games to decide who would abuse which child, Mrs Rafferty said.
 
In interviews the victims described how they were abused in front of one another and other adults. 
 
They said the abuse became so routine the victims came to accept it as normal.
The children were preyed upon during a period beginning around 15 years ago. Several victims described Black and Jason Adams taking photos and laughing.
One male victim said: ‘There would be parties and they would do some games where the boys were in one room with the men and the girls were in another with the women.
 
‘The adults would have a card game and the winner would get to choose a boy to start touching their private parts and then hurt them afterwards.’
 
Describing Black, Mrs Rafferty said: 'Was she a helpless victim of abusive males or was she herself deeply involved with the children's ill treatment?
 
'Many of the defendants have become good at appearing normal and respectable.
'This is what you would have to do in order to be child abusers to the extent alleged here.'
All of the defendants denied abusing the children, and claimed it simply did not happen.
During the trial it emerged that police had launched an investigation in to the conduct of Norfolk County Council social workers involved in the case.
 
The court heard that the trial had originally been due to start last year only to be delayed when prosecutors raised concerns over changes made by social workers to statements taken from the children.
This resulted in Norfolk Police launching an investigation into alleged misconduct.
Sarah Elliott QC, representing Black, told the court that at the time the county's children's services department had recently failed an Ofsted inspection, being ranked 'inadequate' in all areas.
The guilty defendants will be sentenced this afternoon.
 
Speaking outside the court, Detective Chief Inspector Pete Hornby praised the bravery of the victims and said he was satisfied with the result of a 28-month investigation.
 
He added: 'This case provides a sickening glimpse into sexual abuse on a large scale.'
He said the force had concluded its investigation into the allegations made against social workers and no criminal charges would be brought.
 
Mr Hornby added: 'In their tender years, these children were subjected to sexual abuse beyond most people's imagination by adults they believed were telling the truth. 
'It is the most harrowing case I have dealt with in 23 years of policing.
 
'Marie Black has been found to be at the centre of this abuse and incited others to commit abuse against them. She thought they would never speak out.
'Today's verdict is testament to the children's bravery and to the hard work of dedicated professionals from a range of agencies in this case.
 
'It has brought them the knowledge they are believed and, I hope, will encourage other victims of abuse to find their voice and come forward.'
 
Sheila Lock, interim executive director of Norfolk children's services, said: 'Sexual abuse against children is an horrific crime and still often goes under-reported or unnoticed.
'The victims in this case have shown tremendous courage in speaking out and I hope that this verdict will give other victims or witnesses the confidence to report abuse - because agencies in Norfolk will listen and act.
 
'This was a complex case brought by the Crown Prosecution Service, with our staff among several witnesses who gave evidence in the proceedings.
'The needs of the children, who were central to the prosecution case, have always been at the fore of our minds and have been the main focus of all of the agencies involved.'

 Cecil the lion, a famous black-maned resident of Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, died at the hands of an American dentist, conservationists report.
They say Walter Palmer paid $50,000 to hunt and kill Cecil with a bow and arrow. The incident occurred around July 6, with a professional hunting outfit reportedly luring Cecil outside the boundaries of the protected reserve using a dead animal as bait.

“Mr. Palmer shot Cecil with a bow and arrow but this shot didn't kill him,” Johnny Rodrigues, chairman of the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force, said in a statement. “They tracked him down and found him 40 hours later when they shot him with a gun. Cecil, who was known all over the world would have earned millions of dollars just from sightseeing. Walter Palmer apparently paid $50,000 for the kill."
It wasn’t the first kill for Palmer, who has multiple photos posted on the website Trophy Hunt America showing the Minnesota resident posing with dead lions, rhinos, water buffalo, warthogs, and other animals.
“As far as I understand, Walter believes that he might have shot that lion that has been referred to as Cecil,” the spokesperson said. “What he’ll tell you is that he had the proper legal permits and he had hired several professional guides, so he’s not denying that he may be the person who shot this lion. He is a big-game hunter; he hunts the world over.”
Theo Bronkhorst, the professional hunter who led Palmer to Cecil, has reportedly been suspended indefinitely from the Zimbabwe Professional Hunters and Guides Association for the way the hunt was carried out.

“ZPHGA reiterates it will not tolerate any illegal hunting or any unethical practices by any of its members and their staff,” the organization said in a statement. “We will await the completion of the current investigation by Zimbabwe Parks Wildlife Management Authority before commenting any further.”
Park rangers and regular visitors knew the 13-year-old lion as a tourist attraction, easily approached by safari guide jeeps for photo opportunities. Cecil had a propensity for lounging in the middle of roads, said Bryan Orford, a former park guide and a longtime visitor to Hwange. Hunting such an easy target only made the killing of Cecil even more wrong, he said.
“I used to drive down the railway line road following Cecil and had to wait for him to get off the road,” Orford said last week. “This walking in front of the vehicle would go on for ages. Other times he would lie in the road, and you had to drive off the road to go around him.”
The death of Cecil not only means one less endangered African lion in the world but also could mean the demise of a whole line of cubs sired by the leader of the Hwange pride.

“The saddest part of all is that now that Cecil is dead, the next lion in the hierarchy  Jericho will most likely kill all Cecil's cubs so that he can insert his own bloodline into the females,” Rodriques said. “This is standard procedure for lions.”
These trio never take a chill pill, after A.K.A’s highly successful  tune “All Eyes On Me”  featuring  Da. L.E.S and Burna Boy, which won the Best Collaboration at the  2015 MAMAs.
Da L.E.S teams up with both for the visuals of the previously released number titled “Paid”. The Vam produced number is directed by Sesan.

Investigation into the circumstances that led to the death of Bobbi Kristina, 22, has began and there are reports that she had a history off getting wasted and falling asleep in bathtubs. TMZ reports below
Bobbi Kristina got extremely drunk the night before her mom died, fell asleep in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and flooded the room ... and it could be critical evidence in the homicide investigation.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Bobbi was partying with Whitney Houston at the Beverly Hilton bar and got drunk and unruly. Bobbi Kristina went up to her room, drew a bath and fell asleep in the tub ... intoxicated. By the time she woke up there was water everywhere.
Sources tell TMZ, attorney Jose Baez, who reps Bobbi's BF Nick Gordon, knows about the incident and will use it to convince prosecutors Nick did nothing wrong ... that she simply took too many drugs and did the same thing she did at the hotel with fatal results.

We've also learned the night Whitney Houston was found dead in her tub, Bobbi Kristina was rushed to the hospital for acute alcohol poisoning. Whitney's PR team said it was for exhaustion, but law enforcement tells us it was excessive alcohol consumption.

It's relevant especially in light of the Medical Examiner's preliminary autopsy report, which reveals no obvious evidence of foul play.

In a segment on The View yesterday, talking about the premier of Caitlyn Jenner's new reality show 'I Am Cait,' actress and The View host Raven-Symoné criticized Caitlyn Jenner for moving too fast to be the face of Transgender America
“I appreciate all she’s going to do for the community. I think it’s wonderful. I’m just surprised at how many girlfriends she has all of a sudden, and how much she’s showing these stories [of transgender youths] all of a sudden. I think it needs a light being shined on it. It’s just a lot for me in one show, and you just came out. I mean, when I came out, I didn’t go and go hardcore and be like, ‘I’m going to save the world for LGBT.’ You got to learn first.”
Press statement from the presidency
"The implementation of a three-pronged financial intervention of President Muhammadu Buhari to assuage workers plight and support the states is now in progress. Specifically, state governments will start benefiting from the special intervention fund of between N250B to N300B in a matter of weeks.
Currently, planning meetings are being held between members of the Federation Account Allocation Committee, FAAC and CBN, on the one hand, and also between CBN and commercial banks on the other hand, regarding details of the special intervention fund and the debt relief program of the President for the states.

Such meetings are reviewing loan profiles of the states, issues around restructuring of existing loans including time span, and reconciling the figures.

Already, it has been agreed that existing state loans be restructured for 20 years, and regarding the bond option, the rates to be applied would be market-based but with a cap to make it affordable. Within weeks from now, the states are expected to start benefiting from this two other parts of the presidential intervention. It would be recalled that the details of the presidential intervention are in three parts: The sharing of about $2.1B in fresh allocation between the states and the federal government. The money was sourced from recent LNG proceeds to the federation account, and its release okayed by the president.

A Central Bank-packaged special intervention fund to the tune of about N250B to N300B that will offer financing to the states. This would be a soft loan available to states. A debt relief program by the Central Bank of Nigeria and Debt Management Office, DMO, which will help states convert their commercial bank loans into bonds, and restructuring such loans by extending their life span thereby reducing the debt-servicing expenditures of the states.

 By extending the commercial loans of the states, the third part of the presidential intervention would therefore make available more funds to the state governments which otherwise would have been removed at source by the banks. To be able to offer this option to the states, President Muhammadu Buhari brought the financial muscle of the federal government to bear on behalf of the states guaranteeing the elongation of the loans.

Besides, the availability of the $2.1B from LNG which has now been shared to the states was made possible because President Buhari set a new fiscal standard and tone that all monies generated should go to the federation accounts. Before that constitutional standard was upheld by the president, LNG dividends were going to other NNPC designated accounts.

 None of the three parts of this intervention would have been possible without the creativity and approval of President Buhari. It should be noted that the backlog of the salaries in some of the states went back several months before the president took office.

To date, the states have now drawn from the LNG taxes and dividends totaling $2.1B, besides a second sharing from the federation account-ie the regular monthly allocations-a sum of over N518 Billion last week. Finally states have been advised during NEC meetings to take certain steps to avoid a similar financial crisis in the future.

These include: Making the payment of salaries, a first-line charge. Do more to increase their internally generated revenue. Clean-up their payroll to eliminate ghost workers. Have a fully-functional Debt Management Offices.
