OMG! You Won’t Believe What Kemi Olunloyo Had To Say As Blogger Stella Dimoko Calls Out Linda Ikeji For Theft

Coming after her small break from all social media, Kemi Olunloyo have dropped her two cents after blogger, Stella Dimoko Korkus called out celebrity blogger, Linda Ikeji for plagiarism!

“Linda the next time you want to lift an interview I did,there is something called GIVING CREDIT. The next time you try it again I will teach you that two can play. Enough already. Quoting an interview I did as if the interviewer does not exist is wrong. This is me talking. I fear no one and keeping quiet doesn’t mean I don’t wanna talk. Enough said!”

 

 

Recall that Linda and Stella were once best of friends, but their friendship went sour after, they reportedly spread strong gossips about themseves, or should we say, ” The Devil scattered them? LOL”. However, reacting to the call out, Kemi Olunloyo who claimed to have forgiven Linda for “Killing her brand” took to her Instagram page and wrote:

#HNNGossip I’m the only NIGERIAN in the Top 10 pioneer bloggers in the world @time magazine 1999. Many of you were babies when this started in 2006. Linda is a blogger, Stella and I are Journalists. There is a big difference. Journalists who blog are called professional bloggers. Mr Aye Dee took Linda’s blog down for 29 hours because of copyright infringement. I was the first to fight for Linda behind the scenes and told you her blog will return live at midnight and it did plus I tweeted it #LIVE. My Twitter genius @tade355 go find me those tweets. I called my friend Sergei Brim co-founder of Google who linked with Google Nigeria. The beef here is long-standing.

At the Nigerian Tribune in 2013, I was told to do a story on Nigeria’s top Female bloggers. When I compiled the list, Stella declined to be featured if Linda was on it. Next I was Linda’s victim. The 2013 gun story where she diminished my brand. I dropped the Tribune story and instead I wrote a story on how Nigerian bloggers have generally failed because of copying and syndicating each other. Linda also made fun of Stella’s oyinbo babies saying she slept with oil expats and didn’t know the father of her kids when she actually married one a day had kids with him before they moved to Germany. I watched all this play out from 2006-2013.

The solution now is Linda, keep your interns trained on photo credits and sourcing info. Someone will take down your blog permanently like what happened to Twitter. We are web logging and logging the web is not all copy and paste. #WEBLOGGING without the we is what is termed blogging. You must credit and source content from the web meaning other people’s work. Cheers Kemi Olunloyo–Journalist”.

Big Fraud! The Igbos Told Me To Ignore You Buhari Tells Atiku

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buahri Friday said that the endorsement of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, carried no weight as he was advised by well-meaning leaders from the South East to disregard the endorsement.

President Buhari specifically said that the split within the Ohanaeze Igbo socio-cultural group over the reported endorsement of Abubakar, for the 2019 election did not surprise him.

Speaking at a meeting with a select group of South-east leaders led by the National Chairman of the United Progressive Party, UPP, Chief Chek was Okorie at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Friday, Buhari said that the moment the so-called resolution was announced, he got calls from well-meaning leaders from the region asking him to disregard it as it was without any substance.

In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, the President said, “From that moment, I knew that the resolution would not stand, and alas, there it was.” President Buhari said that his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, got it right from the very beginning that the major problems facing the country were mainly on security, corruption and the economy.

“We have done so much. Given the chance, we will do more. Given every chance, we will tell Nigerians where we were in 2015 and what we have achieved up to now. “We will not get tired of speaking about the golden opportunity Nigeria lost during 16 years of the PDP. We earned money, which we didn’t use,” he said. “The state of infrastructure we inherited was terrible – no roads, the railway was killed and power. They lacked conscience because anybody with conscience will not do what they did. We will report them to Nigerians. Let anybody lead this country but not the PDP.

They were so reckless with the resources of the country,” the President said. “If you ruin the economy, send your children abroad to get education, won’t they come back?” he asked, adding: “I said it 30 years ago that this is the only country we have.

We must stay here and salvage it together.” The leaders of the delegation, Engineer Emeka Ekwuosa and the National Chairman of the United Progressive Party (UPP), Chief Chekwas Okorie, informed President Buhari that the Igbos and South-easterners generally understand the good things he is doing for Nigeria which they said, had unfortunately been misunderstood. They promised to mobilise support for him in the south-east, saying that his re-election will be a national consensus.

NDLEA arrest “Policeman” caught smuggling weed in Edo State

The NDLEA has arrested a fake policeman caught smuggling cannabis in Edo State.

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has arrested two persons suspected to be drug smugglers in the Etsako East Local Government Area of Edo State.

It was learnt that the suspects, who were disguised as policemen, were intercepted while conveying 50 bags of dried weeds, suspected to be cannabis sativa and weighing 685 kilogrammes, along Okpella-Okene road.

They were said to have operated with a black Toyota Hiace bus, marked Ondo AKR 392 LZ and labelled with stickers of the emblem of the Nigeria Police.

The Edo State Commander of the agency, Mr. Buba Wakawa, while confirming the arrest on Friday, identified the fake policemen as one Matthew Onumba and Ojukwwu Henry.

Wakawa described them as members of a drug syndicate specialised in smuggling cannabis from the South to North-West region of the country.

He explained that the bus had reportedly taken off from Uzebba, in the Owan West Local Government Area of the state, en route to Kaduna State, when it was intercepted during a search operation by officers of the agency.

He said that the suspected smugglers had also attached a siren to the vehicle in a bid to evade security checks by the police. The commander also disclosed that 2,412kg of cannabis was seized when operatives of the command raided a forest in Okpuje, in a separate operation.

He said, “The black bus (Toyota), with tainted glass, had a siren and police stickers both at the front and rear to deceive unsuspecting members of the public as well as security personnel. It has all the paraphenalia of an official police vehicle but all is a ruse.

 

“So much has been invested into this operation and I am glad that our efforts have been rewarded.”

BREAKING! Big Blow For Atiku As Another Political Party Adopts Buhari For 2019

President Muhammadu Buhari has received a big boost ahead of the 2019 polls as another political party have signified their intention to adopt his candidacy for next year’s poll.
The United Progressive Party has said that it will adopt Buhari as its candidate for the 2019 polls on Tuesday, next week.
The Chairman of the party, Chief Chekwas Okorie, announced this in Abuja after a closed-door meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa.
He also told State House Correspondents that Igbo leaders never met formally to endorse former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar.

Since August, there had been indications that the United Progressive Party, UPP will throw their weight behind President Muhammadu Buhari as their Presidential candidate for the 2019 presidential election.

 

The party had ruled out the possibility of going into alliance with the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, despite attending some of the meetings with relevant political parties that formed the Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP.

The National Chairman of UPP Chief Chekwas Okorie who was the party’s presidential candidate in 2019 in an exclusive interview with Vanguard in Abuja said he had concluded that the UPP will not field any presidential candidate in the forthcoming election.

Responding to the question that there was an understanding between UPP and APC to work together in 2019 at that time (August 2018),  he said there was no such understanding at the moment but expressed the optimism that it could be possible.

He said, “There is no political romance at the moment, there is no understanding of any kind, of course there has to be some interface at a certain level before understanding can be reached.

For instance, you have a group of political parties that went and signed a MoU with the PDP. So such people can no longer claim that they have no relationship with the PDP. They have an umbrella body they call CUPP.

“Having said that, in UPP we believe in following due process, if we have made up our mind one way or there other, there wouldn’t have been meeting for the NEC meeting to consider which way to go and “But I can tell you that PDP doesn’t hold any attraction to us at all. The reason is that we were invited to all the meetings, in fact, it is actually the APC that hasn’t even been inviting parties to any kind of meeting. I can tell you there is no room for us to relate with PDP at all.” the UPP chairman emphatically declared.

 

 

PDP On Fire! 10 Million votes,10 Million Votes!

The Atiku/Obi Presidential Movement, a group for the actualization of the Presidential ambition of Alh. Atiku Abubakar has promised to deliver 10 million votes for the former Vice President. Amb. Niyi Omoyele, Director General of the movement disclosed this when he led National and state executives on a courtesy visit to the wife of the Presidential candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).


The group which also vowed to resist all forms of rigging in the Presidential election, said that the movement had structures at the grassroots and across the 774 local government of Nigeria. Omoyele said that the movement has been in existence since the return of democracy in 1999 and had campaigned for Obasanjo-Atiku, Yar,adua-Goodluck, Goodluck-Sambo and was now going to campaign for Atiku-Obi. He said that any attempt to rig the 2019 election would be resisted by members of the group as the electoral law now provides for the instant announcement and transmission of the result from the polling unit and wards level in the presence of all stakeholders.


“Members of the Atiku/Obi Presidential movement are optimistic that 2019 election is the divine time for Atiku’s Presidency because of the overwhelming acceptance of his candidacy across the country. “Nigerians are desirous of change, the type of change that only Atiku Abubakar can provide,” he said.

 

He reiterated that the group is targeting to mobilise at least 10 million voters in synergy with other like minds toward the successful outing of Atiku/Obi at the poll. A member of the national executive of the group Prince Joshua Idowu described Atiku as a good product that was easy to sell to the electorate.


The National women leader of the group Mrs Amaka Ofor also said that their women across the 774 local government in Nigeria have concluded arrangement to stage a one million solidarity walk for Atiku in Abuja. Responding to the group, Atiku’s wife, Hajia Titi Abubakar thanked them for the visit and appreciated them for their continued support and solidarity to her husband.

 

She assured them that Atiku Abubakar was a man of integrity and that he would keep his promises to Nigerians and would never forget them when he emerged. Other members of the group who also featured at the visit include: Gomez Okpala, Director for National Mobilisation and Mrs. Jumai Gowon, Director for Special Duties.

SAD!! Sorrow, tears as fire kills family of four in Northern Nigeria State

It was a sad day for friends and loved ones of a family of four who perished in a fire incident in the Northern Nigerian state of Kebbi.

Three children of same parents, their mother and another child have been burnt to death in an early morning inferno on Friday in Argungu Local Government Area of Kebbi State.

News Agency of Nigeria reports that the incident, which has thrown residents of the area into mourning, also partially razed the victims’ bungalow. The Chairman of the State Emergency Management Agency, Sani Dododo, who was at the scene, told NAN that the man of the family was not at home when the incident happened.

“The incident happened around 1a.m on Friday, in the house of a West African Cotton Company Limited employee, Malam Umar Argungu, who was on duty on that day. His wife was in the house with their three children: two daughters and a boy, as well as a neighbour’s daughter who was keeping them company because the husband was away,” he said.

Dododo said the incident was caused by an electric heater which was unattended to in the house.

“The woman had forgotten the heater and it kept on heating till all the water had evaporated. The house caught fire, which resulted in the death of the woman, her three children and the neighbour’s daughter,” he said.

He warned residents of the state to always switch off electricity in their home before sleeping at night, especially during this harmattan season.

This is a sad incident but how best can the incident of fire be controlled and better managed?

Odili Sues Odinkalu Over Book On Obasanjo’s Third Term Agenda

Former  Governor of Rivers State, Peter Odili, has sued the former Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Chidi Odinkalu, for allegedly defaming him in a new book he co-authoured.

The book titled “Too Good To Die: Third Term and the Myth of the Indispensable Man in Africa” which was written by Odinkalu and Ayisha Osori, tried to unravel what led to the failure of the notorious third term agenda of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

But Odili, in the suit filed by his lawyer, Kanu Agabi, said the book have earned him public ridicule and scorn. He said that as a recipient of numerous local and international awards, there was no way he could have been involved in the numerous crimes Odinkalu and Osori accused him of in their book.

For instance, the book narrated the story of the late Harry Marshal, a politician that was assassinated shortly after he fell out with Odili. The book cited a letter that Marshal wrote to the police at the time to report the many violent attacks against his party, the All Nigerian Peoples Party (ANPP). Marshal, in the letter, said that the attackers were thugs loyal to Odili and were being supported by the police.

The book also claimed that the bulk of the funds which Obasanjo used to canvass for his failed third term bid were supplied by Odili and Adamu Muazu, who at the time were the Governors of Rivers and Bauchi States respectively.

Odili demanded that Odinkalu and Osori pay him N1 billion in damages, as well as a published apology and an end to further publication of copies of the book.

When contacted, Odinkalu said he could not react to the development as he was not aware of the suit.

Osori and Odinkalu are currently working with the Open Society Initiative West Africa (OSIWA) as the Executive Director and Senior Legal Officer respectively.

JUST IN: Buhari Blows HOT, Breaks Silence On Igbo Elders’ ‘Endorsement’ Of Atiku

President Muhammadu Buhari has finally reacted to the purported endorsement of Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party by a group of Igbo Elders.

STRANGE BUT TRUE!! How Mermaids Abduct Woman For 1 Year, Return Her To Same Spot Later [Photos]

A 52-year-old Indonesian woman identified as Nining Sunarsih, who was on vacation in Sukabumi, West Java, when she was swept away by a strong wave on Citepus Beach, has been found. The lady who was presumed dead by authorities when she was washed away by the strong wave in January last year, turned up alive on the same beach – 18 months later. At the time, eyewitnesses said they heard the woman screaming and waving her hands for help but they were too scared to go in to help.

 

 

Search and rescue operations didn’t find any sign of her until a week after the tragic disappearance when a dead body was discovered in the area. They asked Nining’s family to come and identify the body, and even though it was reportedly in very bad condition, her relatives were convinced that it wasn’t her, because it lacked a distinctive birthmark on the abdomen, and the fingernails looked very different.

 

 

It was gathered that her family who never gave up hope of finding her alive, returned to the same beach on Saturday after her father began having mysterious dreams and found her lying unconscious on the sand, wearing the same clothes as on the night she vanished. The family began searching in the early evening and at first were unsuccessful, but discovered Sunarsih around midnight.

 

 

She was discovered by her sister – who was one of the people who had watched her disappear. According to reports Sunarsih was unconscious, fully clothed, and around 500m (1,600ft) from where she initially vanished.
Sunarsih has since been taken to hospital, where doctors say her vital signs are stable and she is expected to make a full recovery. It was further gathered that she has since regained consciousness and has been able to eat and drink, but is so far unable to talk – meaning nobody has been able to question her about what happened and where she has been.
