According to the Delsu student, she heard people shouting ‘snake, snake, snake’ while sleeping and woke to see the snake crawl into her room.

She wrote;

I can’t keep this to myself. God saved me today.

At exactly 12noon, This snake entered my room while I was sleeping.
I heard people screaming “SNAKE! SNAKE! SNAKE! Julie dey inside”. I looked to the direcetion of my door and saw this snake entering slowly and i started praying because that was the first thing that came to my mind.
People were shouting “Julie come out” but NO! i sat on my bed praying and watching this snake’s movement so it won’t be difficult to locate when the securities get to the room.

Then I called the security number in my school. They came to kill it, facing one direction I told them I saw it last (a cupboard close to the door). Not knowing the snake has even gotten to the bed I thought was safe. The bed I was squeezing myself on ohhh… Oh lord!
I jumped down and they killed it.
They brought it out from my room dead and people started taking pictures of it.
Let say nobody saw this snake from outside coming into my room and I continued sleeping. In fact! The only thing popping in my mind right now is “Nara” by @timgodfreyworld

‘Return To The National Team’- Dybala Begs Lionel Messi

Juventus star, Paulo Dybala, has urged Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi to return to the national team.

Dybala stated this ahead of Argentina’s international friendly clash with Mexico on Wednesday.

Messi has not played for Argentina since the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and it is not clear when or if the 31-year-old will play for his country again.

Dybala, however, wants Messi back in action for the national team, adding that it’s up to him to decide what he wants to do.

“We all want Messi back in the national team,” Football Italia quoted Dybala as saying.

“We all know the importance of Leo for us, but it’s up to him.

“We are a group made up of many young players and we need the support of the people.”

Dybala was part of the Argentina team that defeated Mexico 2-0 on Friday in an international friendly encounter.


‘Saraki Must Go’ – Senator Ali Ndume

Sen. Ali Ndume (APC-Borno) has accused Senate President Bukola Saraki as personalizing the chamber, insisting that plans to impeach him are much alive.

Ndume said at a Forum of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Tuesday, that he would not be bought over with his appointment as Chairman, Senate Committee on Establishment and Public Service.

Ndume is one of the APC lawmakers that has insisted that Saraki must vacate his seat following his defection from the party to the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).

He had a running battle with Saraki following his supposed support for the Executive against decisions of the National Assembly.

Ndume lost his seat as Leader of the Senate and was suspended for six legislative months but the courts later nullified the suspension and declared it illegal.

He was also stripped of his position as Chairman Senate Committee on Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Ndume said he regretted supporting Saraki to emerge as President of the Senate, alleging that he was running the affairs of the senate like a private business.

“Saraki is not supposed to give out committees because they do not belong to him.

“He has personalised the senate and he is becoming like the senators president not Senate president.

“The selection committee is the one with the mandate to give out committees. The committees do not belong to Saraki, ” he said.

The lawmaker said he would not be carried away by the position, stressing that it was not a big deal.

According to him, he does not need to head any committee to provide service to the people as a senator.


‘Why Super Eagles Clash Against Uganda Today Is Very Important’- Goalkeeper Ezenwa Speaks Out

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa has said that Nigeria’s international friendly game against Uganda on Tuesday evening at the Stephen Keshi Stadium will help build the team’s confidence as they prepare for the 2019 African Cup of Nations, AFCON.

According to the Enyimba shot-stopper, today’s clash is important because there is no more FIFA window break before the kickoff of the 2019 AFCON.

Gernot Rohr’s men booked their place in next year’s tournament in Cameroon, following a 1-1 draw with South Africa last weekend.

”We are focused ahead of the game because it is a way of building confidence in the team because preparations for the AFCON have started,” Ezenwa was quoted by Channels Television as saying at the end of training on Monday.

”There is no more FIFA window break before the kickoff of the AFCON, so we have to use this to start the buildup of the AFCON.

”Today, the team is working together that is why we got at least one point that made us to qualify.

”We are focused and we know the importance of every game we play, this game against Uganda we have to take it as a celebration game, to win for our fans, make them happier, to know that we are ready for the AFCON.”


See What Lionel Messi Is Saying About Playing In The Premier League

Barcelona star, Lionel Messi, has revealed that he will do well in the Premier League.

Football fans and pundits have wondered why the player has refused to move to clubs outside La Liga.

Some argued that it is because he would fail to shine in the Premier League as he does in Spain.

However, a respected Sky Sports journalist, Guillem Balague, who had a discussion with Messi over how he would fare in the Premier League, revealed that the Argentine boasted that he can play anywhere.

The La Liga expert said, “I asked Messi about people in England saying: ‘You would not do so well on a cold, wet night in Stoke.’

“He (Messi) said, ‘They should have seen the pitches I played on in Rosario and I was quite good there too’.”

Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, former president of Nigeria, was born November 20, 1957 in Otuoke, Ogbia Local Government of Bayelsa State. His father, Lawrence Ebele Jonathan was a canoe- maker and his mother, Eunice Ayi Ebele Jonathan, is a retired farmer.

He was educated at St. Stephen’s Primary School, Otuoke; St Michael’s Primary School, Oloibiri; Mater Dei High School, lmiringi; Ogbia, and University of Port Harcourt, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree, Master’s degree and Doctorate in Hydrobiology and Fisheries Biology.

Before joining politics, he served as a Science Inspector of Education, a lecturer at Rivers State College of Education Rumuolumeni (now Ignatius Ajuru University) and as an Assistant Director at the defunct Oil Minerals Producing Areas Development Commission.

His remarkable political career began with the return of democracy to Nigeria in 1998, following the death of General Sani Abacha who ruled Nigeria as a military dictator from 1993. In the run up to the 1998 elections, Diepreye Alaimeyeseigha, governorship candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chose Dr. Goodluck Jonathan to be his running mate. The Alaimeyeseigha/Jonathan ticket won the election and he became the first civilian deputy governor of Bayelsa State on May 29, 1999. They were re-elected in 2004. Jonathan’s diligence and loyalty to Governor Alaimeyeseigha earned him the recognition as the “most hardworking deputy governor” in Nigeria.

Goodluck Jonathan served as deputy governor of Bayelsa state until December 12, 2005, when he was sworn in as governor. In 2007 he won the PDP Bayelsa State gubernatorial primary and was in the midst of his campaign when he was nominated to be the PDP presidential candidate, Governor Umaru Musa Yar’ Adua’s vice presidential running mate.

The Yar’ Adua/Jonathan ticket won the election. Their victory marked the first peaceful transition of power from one elected civilian leader to another since Nigeria attained independence from Britain in 1960. On May 29, 2007, Dr. Jonathan took the oath of office as Nigeria’s Vice-President, the first time that a civilian from Nigeria’s South-South geopolitical zone would hold such high political office in Nigeria.


If I were Nigerian, I would vote for Atiku Abubakar – Ex-Ugandan Vice President

Ex-Ugandan Vice President, Dr. Gilbert Bukenya, has waded into Nigeria’s 2019 elections and according to him he would have voted for Atiku Abubakar if he was a Nigerian.

If I were Nigerian, I would vote for Atiku Abubakar – Ex-Ugandan Vice President lailasnews

Dr. Gilbert Bukenya who served as the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at Makrere, said he was left with so much to contemplate, during his encounter with Abubakar, that he never stopped thinking of how Nigerians are so lucky having the person of Atiku Abubakar as a Nigerian.

He further disclosed that when he heard Abubakar had joined the presidential race, he immediately thought, “what an extraordinary opportunity Nigerians have.” Read the statement from Dr. Gilbert Bukenya, who was Former Vice President of Uganda from 2003-2011, below;

“I have rubbed shoulders with several African Presidents and Vice-Presidents. I have participated in many conversations with these men – both formally and informally. Some of these conversations have attracted attention and many have been amusing – but very few have included intellectual and analytical discussions of substantive issues. Seldom in these conversations does one hear about the conditions and needs of the country’s poor.

In 2005, I met a man at his residence in Abuja, Nigeria, who surprised me. He welcomed me with a guarded smile and went straight to business. He was smart, eloquent and very knowledgeable. I was struck by his consistent reference to “my people.” He was so concerned about the poor. He discussed impacts of educational injustices and weakened agricultural practices in Nigeria. Our conversation ended and we parted.

While I left him with some traditional Ugandan gifts, he left me with much to contemplate. This Nigerian “big man” had sounded so earnest and completely devoted to “his people”. Surely, I was surprised and he has left a lasting impression. We have remained friends over the years and I have observed his business and political dealings over time. I have noted the tremendous value that this man, Atiku Abubakar, has contributed to Nigeria’s development.

He has been a philanthropic leader and a determined and passionate advocate for improving the national educational system. I heard recently with great pleasure that he is running for the Presidency in the upcoming Presidential elections. I immediately thought, “what an extraordinary opportunity Nigerians have to elect Atiku as president of Nigeria.” If I were Nigerian, I would vote for Atiku Abubakar without hesitation or reservation. On an individual basis, he is unequivocally the best candidate.”


‘Neymar Leaving Barcelona Was A Terrible Sin’- Seedorf

Neymar’s decision to leave Barcelona was “a terrible sin on his behalf”, says Clarence Seedorf, with it suggested that the Brazilian needs a return to Camp Nou or a switch to Real Madrid.

The man widely considered to be one of the finest players on the planet opted to walk out on La Liga heavyweights in Catalunya back in the summer of 2017, as a €222 million (£198m/$254m) deal took him to Paris Saint-Germain.

It was suggested that Neymar needed to free himself from Lionel Messi’s shadow in order to become a superstar in his own right, but Seedorf believes the 26-year-old needs world-class talent alongside him.

He does boast a number of talented team-mates at PSG, such as World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe, but he is the undisputed talisman of the team and virtually untouchable in all that he does.

Former Madrid star Seedorf feels those surroundings are not ideal for Neymar, stating in Sport amid reports of a possible move back to Spain: “Neymar’s talent is undisputed, but he needs a squad that can help him grow in order to give the best of himself because he won’t achieve that on his own.

“I honestly believe that leaving Barcelona so quickly was a terrible sin on his behalf.

“If he had stayed in the club for two more seasons, things could’ve worked out differently for him. But now he is at PSG and that’s the path he needs to follow.

“Neymar also needs a manager who can give him what he needs, because he is still very young and he hasn’t been in Europe for too long.

“He also needs to play alongside other footballers who are better than he is, I’m not talking about players who rival his quality as a footballer but people who have won bigger titles than he has.

“These players can teach him about different experiences and they can also teach him more respect.”

My conclusion: A lot of men don’t love their wives. These marriages aren’t based on love; they’re based on a selection of who they feel is best fit for the wife role. There’s no way you treat someone you love like this.

You’re home and your wife is still at work and you don’t think of fixing dinner for her? No love

Your wife gets a promotion at work that makes her earn more money and this doesn’t make you happy? No love

You leave all the domestic work to her and just do absolutely nothing? No love

You like to enjoy a drink or two with the lads after work but you don’t think she should have such a thing cos she’s married? No love

She’s really tired after work but you still wanna have sex? No fucking love

The suspect said to be the son of a popular Prophetess of a Pentecostal Church in Akure, was arrested by operatives of the Ondo State Police Command after the crime was reported by neighbours which subsequently culminated in his arraignment in court on Monday, for sexually abusing the minor.

Daily Post reported that the suspect who was dragged before Magistrate Olanipekun Mayomi, on a one-count charge of rape and defilement of the minor, blamed the devil for his crime. It was gathered that he gave the sum of ‘N110’ to the 9-year-old girl, after raping her.

“The man decided to take advantage of the little girl because of the poor status of her parents.

“He then decided that the girl should follow him so he could buy her some bread and Ankara, only to rape the poor girl and give her a pantry of N110.

“A sum which she couldn’t even make use of again because of the pains and anguish had taken over,” he said.


Jonathan accuses Obama of interfering in 2015 elections in his book ‘My Transition Hours’

While his book launch is still ongoing, it has been gathered that former President Goodluck Jonathan accused former US President, Barack Obama of interfering in 2015 elections in his book titled ‘My Transition Hours’.

Jonathan accuses Obama of interfering in 2015 elections in his book 'My Transition Hours' lailasnews

According to Goodluck Jonathan, Obama sent his secretary of state, John Kerry, and made a video broadcast to Nigerians in ways designed to influence the outcome of the election against him. The former Nigerian President who described this as ‘humiliating’, eventually lost the election to President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and conceded while the final results were yet to be announced — a step unprecedented in Nigeria’s history.

The Former President also addressed the controversy, caused by the postponement of the election from February 14 to March 28. Jonathan who tried to justify the rescheduling of the elections but dismissed claims that he was trying to elongate his tenure, added that it was because of the security situation caused by the Boko Haram insurgency in the north-east.

Here is an excerpt from the book shared by Cableng;


He wrote: “I can recall that President Obama sent his Secretary of State to Nigeria, a sovereign nationto protest the rescheduling of the election. John Kerry arrived in Nigeria on Sunday January 25, 2015 and said ‘it’s imperative that these elections happen on time as scheduled’.

“How can the US Secretary of State know what is more important for Nigeria than Nigeria’s own government? How could they have expected us to conduct elections when Boko Haram controlled part of the North East and were killing and maiming Nigerians? Not even the assurance of the sanctity of the May 29, 2015 handover date could calm them down. In Nigeria, the constitution is very clear. No President can extend his tenure by one day.

“On March 23, 2015, President Obama himself took the unusual step of releasing a video message directly to Nigerians all but telling them how to vote. In that video, Obama urged Nigerians to open the ‘next chapter’ by their votes. Those who understood subliminal language deciphered that he was prodding the electorate to vote for the opposition to form a new government. The message was so condescending, it was as if Nigerians did not know what to do and needed an Obama to direct them.

“In his message, he said ‘all Nigerians must be able to cast their votes without intimidation or fear,’ yet his government was vehemently and publicly against the postponement of the elections to enable our military defeat Boko Haram and prevent them from intimidating voters. This was the height of hypocrisy!”

Jonathan said the foreign pressure on the issue of election rescheduling was intense, suggesting that “the curious posture” was of one who had been “deceived before and therefore had every reason to cede no credence to our position. But there was no reason to have such a posture”.

Former President Goodluck Jonathan further disclosed that David Cameron, then the UK prime minister, called to express his concern about the election rescheduling, “just as John Kerry came from the United States to express further worry… In fact, John Kerry did not accept our reasons for the rescheduling”. According to him, it was “unbelievable” because “we knew why the agitation was beyond what meets the eyes. There were deeper political interests”.

“In attendance at the meeting of the Council of State where the decision to reschedule the election was taken were almost all the living former Heads of State of this country. That should have convinced John Kerry of the good intentions of the government. He cannot claim to love and defend Nigeria more than all our former heads of state present at the meeting. I have stated earlier how Kerry’s visit was designed to humiliate a sitting Nigerian president and clearly take sides in the country’s election,” Jonathan wrote

One of the IDPs who spoke to a delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Mr John Langai, disclosed that many of them had been forced to seek refuge in the camp since June when their communities, Bachit and others were attacked by insurgents.

Aside from insufficient food and sustenance, they also complained of sleeping on bare floors, which they described as “degrading and dehumanising” conditions ever since they moved to the camp.

“Many of our people were killed, our houses burnt by the attackers and our farms destroyed.

The Former world’s fattest man who stole £197-worth of medicines, toiletries and even a Star Wars toy, has been fined £43 for shoplifting by a judge in Orange, Massachusetts. Paul Mason who once tipped the scales at 70 stone, now faces returning to the UK for surgery on his knees and gastric band.

The suspect who now weighs 34 stone, was spotted trying to make off with the goods from the store in the town on May 13 this year. The former postal worker – who had slimmed down to 19 stone before piling on the pounds after splitting with his fiancee, was seen putting items into a bag before he attempted to leave the Walmart on his electric mobility scooter without paying for them and further set off an alarm.

The suspect originally from Ipswich, Suffolk, was initially charged with larceny, but it was reduced to the minor charge of shoplifting at Orange District Court on Friday. Mason will now head back to the UK – where he will try to get surgery on the NHS, was fined £43 by the Judge Patrick Sabbs and was given an injunction preventing him from entering in Walmart stores again.


Buhari’s failure to obey court orders, national embarrassment – Soyinka

Wole Soyinka who further disclosed that the only way to move the country forward was restructuring, added that it is not an option but a necessity that will help avoid the constant bloodshed in the country and guarantee its unity.

“We want government to understand that they are part of the community and have been given a mission of carrying out the will of the people… Insecurity has reached a certain level that even when we bring experts in, they wonder what exactly they have come to do. They are given a certain problem to solve and when they arrive here, they meet another problem.

“We have had many instances of armed killer herdsmen who wreak havoc across communities in the country and, rather than show empathy to the victims, the Inspector General of Police goes there to say they were killed because they blocked the grazing routes for cattle.

“One way of stopping the bloodbath is to reconfigure the nation. States must be given maximum control over their resources. There are some who prefer to grow rice, there are others who prefer to grow religion and we know where religion has taken us, today.

“Some people will like to say it is not really religion that has gotten us to where we are. I agree with you, but, some people have manipulated religion to suit their purpose.

“Those insisting on restructuring do so because they know that there is something wrong with the state of Nigeria. Many times, Nigerians have come together to proffer solutions and the way forward for the country, but, after spending so much time and effort, nothing ever comes out of it. The recommendations are left to gather dust. How much longer shall we continue like this?

“Forgiveness is a virtue. Although I have the same temperament as my late friend, Tai Solarin, but, it is a national embarrassment that our president has refused to obey our laws. Citizens should not be the one to choose to obey laws” he said.

The President General of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, Afenifere chieftain, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, who also spoke at the even in Lagos, both stated that restructuring of Nigeria is now or never.
