Cardi B defends Fiancé, Offset, over homophobic lyric controversy

Rap Queen, Cardi B, whose Fiancé, Offset, was called out by the LGBT community for rapping the line “Pinky ring crystal clear, 40k spent on a private Lear/60k solitaire/I cannot vibe with queers” in his verse on rapper YFN Lucci’s song, ‘Boss Life’has defended her boyfriend’s alleged homophobic lyric.
Though Offset who is part of the Migos crew apologized on his social media page, saying he never meant to diss the community as he is for all people living their true lives, however members of the LGBT community turned down his apology and continued slamming him, even when he shared a screenshot of the dictionary definition of ‘queer’, saying he wasn’t using the word as a homophobic slur.
Cardi B who defended Offset in a video, said that she asked Offset about the lyric when people began calling him out on social media, and he said that he didn’t know that the word had homophobic implications.

“I’m not going to let somebody call him ‘homophobic’ when I know that he’s not,” she said on Periscope. “And I’m saying this because I seen him around these … around gays, and he treats them with the same respect he treats everybody. He never acts uncomfortable and he just don’t care.”
She went on to add, that “queer” has a “different vocabulary on the dictionary”, and continued, saying, “Now, that’s a word that you guys say that it’s a bad word for gays — I never even heard that word in the first place. Why don’t y’all educate people about it? A lot of people are not aware about what’s wrong or right in the LGBT community. Why don’t we do things to educate instead of bashing and trying to label something that they not?” she said.

Diezani in trouble again as EFCC uncover $1.3b withdrawal from NNPC accounts

Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) detectives have just uncovered the withdrawal of $1.3billion from the accounts of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), ostensibly to fight kidnapping and other security threats in the Niger Delta.
The withdrawal was neither authorised by the National Assembly nor the Federal Executive Council (FEC).
The former Coordinating Minister for the Economy and Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, is also believed to be unaware of the deductions from the NNPC accounts.
The ex-Minister only relied on a memo from ex-President Goodluck Jonathan without recourse to the board of the NNPC.
A former Group Executive Director, Finance and Accounts of NNPC, Mr. Bernard Otti, has been quizzed by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) detectives.
Otti is said to have also made available to the EFCC some documents, including approvals to withdraw the $1.3billion by Mrs Alison-Madueke.
In two other instances, Jonathan wrote on two other requests mandating the former minister to take part of the cash from either NNPC Security Vote Account or from the “Gas Fund”.
According to sources, EFCC operatives were almost closing up the probe of the ex-Minister when the withdrawal of the $1.3billion was uncovered.
About $1.4billion was requested by the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) via three memos, for “Intervention for Urgent National Security Projects.”
About $1.3billion was released from NNPC accounts but it was unclear what became of the $100million balance as at press time.
ONSA had requested for $1.4billion between March 27, 2014 and May 5, 2014 when approval was given and cash backed.
About three memos were sent to ex-President Jonathan on March 27, 2014, 31st March 2014 and May 5, 2014.
In the first memo, of March 27th, 2014, the former National Security Adviser, Mr. Sambo Dasuki, requested for $1billion to fight kidnapping, crude oil theft and petroleum pipeline vandalism.
The memo to Jonathan, which was titled “Request for intervention for urgent National Security Projects”, said:
“Your Excellency, apart from the insurgency in the Northeast, the country is also contending with some other security challenges, such as crude oil theft, sea piracy, kidnapping as well as petroleum pipeline vandalism.
“These challenges have greatly affected revenue profile of the nation and our international image.
“Our gas pipeline network has also come under serious threat as the scourge of vandalism has spread to the gas sector.
Apart from the volatility of gas and its potential for collateral damage, especially environmental degradation, shortage of gas will constitute a serious setback to Government’s power generation efforts.
“Additionally, Mr. President had promised during the 30th meeting of NEPAD Heads of State and Governments Orientation Committee that the Trans-Saharan Pipeline Project from Nigeria to Algeria will be completed in 2015. The security of the Nigerian end of this pipeline network is critical to the success and smooth running of this gas project.
“Further to Mr. President’s support so far in our fight against terrorism, there is urgent need to raise our intelligence gathering efforts to more strategic levels.
“It is therefore pertinent that a holistic approach is applied to solving these challenges highlighted above. To ameliorate the above mentioned challenges, some reputable companies have been identified to provide the following:
(a) An integrated maritime domain awareness platform that can be integrated into enforcement platform of the Navy and other agencies to help check crude oil theft, sea piracy and kidnapping as well as Offshore pipeline vandalism.
(b) An Onshore petroleum and gas pipeline surveillance and monitoring solution.
(c) Unmanned aerial platforms for strategic intelligence gathering.
(d) Mobile radars for aerial coverage by the Nigerian Air Force
(5) In view of the foregoing, Mr. President is kindly requested to approve the provision of $1billion intervention funds to enable the urgent provision of the above-mentioned services. Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of my highest esteem.

In his response, the ex-President directed as follows: “Please, release US$200m only from NNPC Security Vote.”
A highly-placed source in EFCC, who spoke in confidence, said:
“Investigation so far confirmed the withdrawal of the $1.3billion from some accounts of the NNPC abroad. But there are sufficient clues of suspected money laundering by the ex-Ministers of Petroleum Resources and some government agencies who used ONSA as a platform.
“There is no evidence of projects executed with the cash. Instead, some of the cash were wired into a few banks by these individuals.
“We have also grilled a former Group Executive Director, Finance and Accounts of NNPC, Mr. Bernard Otti who has cooperated with our investigators by making necessary documents available. We will keep you posted on this case.”

''President Buhari is healthy enough to seek re-election in 2019'' Femi Adesina

Special Assistant to President Buhari on media and publicityFemi Adesina, says President Buhari is medically fit to contest the 2019 presidential poll. Speaking to state house correspondents over the weekend, he said President Buhari is presently in a better state of health than he was when he contested in 2015. He said though the president was yet to decide on whether to re-contest or not, his health would never be an issue as he had been improving tremendously since his return from medical vacation last year.
Yes, health is wealth. The president is not a frivolous person. If he thinks that his health cannot carry anything, he will not do it. So, of course, his health will matter a lot. It will be very important but we need to give glory to God for the way he is now. Every day you see the president you see a glow about him, you see freshness about him. I think he’s even in a better state than when he came in 2015. It’s all to the glory of God. So, once he assesses that his health can carry it, there’s nothing wrong if he steps into the fray. But he has the final decision.’’ he said

Porn star Olivia Lua dead at 23: Fears raised after fifth actress passes away in less than three months

Porn star Olivia Lua dead at 23: Fears raised after fifth actress passes away in less than three months
She had reportedly died in her sleep, and as yet, no further details of her death have been released.
Less than a month later, August Ames was found dead in a public park, 20 minutes from the home she shared with husband Kevin Moore in California.
The 23-year-old had been openly discussing her depressive state and had been harshly trolled hours before her death by Twitter followers furious for a decision she'd made about a porn scene.
“If this was mixed with recreational drugs or alcohol, it is believed this to be the cause of her passing.”
Her final Instagram was posted just two days ago.
Olivia is the fifth porn star to die in the last three months after August Ames, Shula Stylez, Olivia Nova and Yuri Luv all passed away.
Canadian actress Shyla Stylez - real name Amanda Friedland - was 35 when she was found unresponsive at her mum's home in British Columbia on November 9.
The two worrying deaths were followed by the tragic loss of Yuri Luv, also known as Yurizan Beltran, at the age of 31.
It was thought she'd committed suicide by overdosing on pills.
Then, on January 10 in 2018 , 20-year-old Olivia wa confirmed dead by her agent, who paid tribute to the "beautiful girl with a very sweet and gentle personality".

Kentucky lawmaker who compared Barack and Michelle Obama to monkeys kills himself after sexual assault allegations...left suicide note on FB

A Republican state lawmaker in Kentucky who refused to resign following allegations that he sexually assaulted a teenage girl in the basement of his home killed himself on Wednesday night.

Dan Johnson shot himself on a bridge in Mount Washington, Kentucky, the Bullitt County sheriff, Donnie Tinnell, said. His body was found near a bridge on Greenwell Ford Road in Mount Washington, in a spot called the River Bottoms. He had a single gunshot wound to his head. A gun was recovered at the scene.
Johnson, 57, was elected to the state legislature in 2016. Prior to the election, racist Facebook posts he made came to light. One compared Barack and Michelle Obama to monkeys. Republican leaders urged him to drop out of the race because of this but he refused and eventually won.  
Johnson was the pastor of Heart of Fire church in Louisville and he sponsored a number of bills having to do with religious liberty and teaching the Bible in public schools. But he was mostly out of the spotlight until Monday, when the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting published an account from a woman saying Johnson sexually assaulted her in the basement of his home in 2013. The woman told police about the incident at the time and they investigated but closed the case and did not file charges. 
On Tuesday, Johnson held a news conference in the pulpit of his church, which he began by leading friends and family in singing a portion of the Christmas carol O Come All Ye Faithful. He said the allegations against him were "totally false" and that they were part of a nationwide strategy of defeating conservative Republicans. He gave an example of the former Republican US Senate candidate Roy Moore, who faces accusations of sexual misconduct from multiple women.
Shortly before 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Johnson posted a troubling message on his Facebook page. In the post, he asked people to care for his wife. He wrote that post-traumatic stress disorder "is a sickness that will take my life, I cannot handle it any longer. It has won this life, BUT HEAVEN IS MY HOME."

Officials discovered Johnson’s body after they were made aware of the Facebook post and they tracked Johnson’s phone to his location.The post appears to have been removed now.

Photo: Driving instructor rapes, strangles corps member to death in Ogun

The Ogun state police command has arrested 29-year-old driving instructor, Festus Udo, pictured above, for raping and strangling a female youth corps member, 23 year old Modupe Taiyese, at Abule Ayo in Mawuko, Odeda local government area of the state.

Parading the suspect before newsmen at the scene of the incident yesterday, the state commissioner of Police, Ahmed Ilyasu, said the suspect was a driving instructor‎ with Lizzy Driving School, Abeokuta, where the victim registered to learn driving.
Udo had lured Modupe into the bushes with the promise of getting her a driving permit while teaching her how to drive. 
Trouble started when Modupe did not return to the lodge where herself and other corps members reside. A case of a missing p[erson was filed by the coordinator of the NYSC in the state, John Okon.
'We went for a powerful, technical screening of fact left behind by the last person she made contact with, who is the suspect. Technically the information led to one person by name Festus Udoh, an indigene of Oromi from Edo state, who was teaching this innocent deceased corper, Taiyese Modupe, how to drive. We were able to uncover this nefarious act and he led us to this place and confessed. The man tactically and deceitfully convinced her on Saturday evening that her driving permit is ready. She decided to answer to his call and he cleverly and deceitfully apprehended this lady and brought her down to this forest where he had a forceful, illegal and unlawful carnal knowledge of her and thereafter strangled her to death. The passport photographs of the suspect were found at the scene of the incident which is a remarkable scene of crime evidence,” he said.
Speaking to newsmen, the suspect said 
“After I took her to this place, I told her that I wanted to have sex with her, she said no, but I dragged her into the bush and had sex with her. After having sex with her, she said she will tell her family, that was when I tore her cloth and used it to strangle her neck, as she was gasping, I now ran away,” he said
He will be charged to court soon.

2face in his rant urged Eedris to make music himself and stop talking nonsense all the time.
Eedris has now fired back in a new interview with HipTV. He said;
"I was very happy. I wanted him to talk. 2face is a very good, nice and simple guy. I was on tour with 2face, Blackface, Plantashun Boiz, the remedies, and I saw what Blackface did to 2face. When I came back to Lagos, I went solo and did a song called Wakka wiki MC. At the end of the song, I said 2face is the Plantashun, the rest are the Boiz. Forget about what Blackface has done. God has belssed you today, your responsibility is to bless Blackface.
Blackface lost his daughter, his wife divorced him, they sent him out of the house. He was living in Jungle. Even if you don't know remember am at all, he wrote 'African Queen'. Guy, you dey craze.
Because of Blackface, I singehandely took you to Kenny Ogungbe (Baba Keke). I took you to him to sign you up. If I was a greedy person, I would take percentage from you. You are a fool. Grow up nigga. I'm okay and doing well."
