Charlyboy, in a statement made available to PoliticsNGR, advised the federal government to be more committed to dousing the rising tensions and fostering peace and unity. The statement read; “Our attention has been drawn to the recent detachment of soldiers from the Nigerian Army to the Afaraukwu country home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and the invasion of Abia State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists on Aba Road, Umuahia, which led to the destruction of laptops and other valuables thereby causing unnecessary panic within the state and the entire region. We consider this move an aberration that must be strongly condemned in a democratic environment like ours. The good people of Abia State deserve better than the undue panic under w…

Image
One person was injured on Sunday evening when soldiers reportedly opened fire on supporters of the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu at his Afraukwu Umuahia country home, Abia state. Narrating the incident to journalists, Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, said the soldiers stormed the IPOB leader’s home in an armoured tank and about three Hilux vans loaded with heavily armed soldiers. He claimed that the soldiers shot sporadically as they approached his father’s compound, causing panic and among residents of the area. Ejiofor said the soldiers wanted to gain entry into his father’s compound but that IPOB members quickly formed a human shield around the compound and stoutly resisted them accussing the Buhari administration of attempting to take his client’s life. “Just to alert the world that the Nigeria military personnel under the command of Chief of Army Staff is presently laying a siege on my client (Nnamdi Kanu) country home in umuahia,” he said. “They …

Rihanna without bra at launch party

Image
The launch party of Rihanna's Fenty Beauty line may technically have been all about beauty, but since this is red carpet queen Rihanna we're talking about, we need to talk about her fashion ~lewk~, too. Ri showed up at Thursday night's event in New York City looking like a straight-up sun goddess. Cosmopolitan reports that she wore a custom Oscar de la Renta gown featuring a long-sleeve yellow T-shirt (sans bra, because, #freethenipple), which she tied at the waist, paired with a full skirt in the same golden hue. A thigh-high slit revealed a pair of lace-up stilettos that worked their way up her entire leg. She topped it all off with — obviously — yellow diamonds. The whole look gave off serious 2015 Met Gala vibes, minus the team of handlers who had to help her walk her gown up the Metropolitan Museum of Art's famous steps.

Topping off the singer and style icon's head-to-toe golden glow was a positively radiantfacebeat, care of Fenty Beauty. According to a post …

United nations prevention of malaria in Nigeria

Image
7 August 2017 – The United Nations health agency estimates that if more funds are secured, up to 10,000 lives in Nigeria could be saved by November through targeted steps in malaria prevention and control. To manage malaria in the Borno state of north-eastern Nigeria, the World Health Organization (WHO) and its partners are strengthening surveillance systems to monitor cases and outbreaks; increasing people's access to care in clinics and to health facilities; spraying insecticides and distributing bed nets as part of vector control; and administering malaria drugs to children under five every month from July to October. Following more than eight years of conflict in Borno, some 3.7 million people need humanitarian assistance – and all are at risk for malaria. WHO estimates that through October, 8,500 people are infected weekly – with more expected. “The most effective way to reduce deaths in emergencies in fragile States, especially those facing malnutrition, is by boosting mala…
