..AT LAST THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT CONDEMNS THE SOUTH AFRICAN POLICE BRUTALITY AGAINST A NIGERIAN MAN
THE Federal Government has demanded appropriate administrative and legal action from the South African government against two of its officers from the Police Service in Cape-Town over an assault on one Nigerian, Mr Clement Emekeneh.
The two officers were, last Friday reported by a local television (ETV) in the country, to have beaten an unidentified individual who was later confirmed to be a Nigerian.
In his reaction, the Nigerian High Commissioner to South Africa, Ambassador S.S. Yusuf, in a statement yesterday said the action which has caused public outrage, has “further highlighted the lawlessness of the South African Police Service, which has become notorious for extra-judicial actions.”
The envoy noted that though the South African Police Service immediately issued a public statement condemning the action of its members while the Independent Police Investigation Department (IPID) also arrested the two officers captured in the television report and were placed on suspension, Yusuf assured that the mission would not relent on its effort to see that justice is done.
“In addition, the High Commissioner, through the effort of the Nigerian Community Leader in Cape Town, was able to speak with the victim, Mr. Clement Emekeneh, to sympathise with him, assuring him of the mission’s support and the necessary steps taken to protest to the host authorities to ensure that justice is done,” he said.
According to the statement, the two officer were charged to court on Monday, March 11, 2014, while the accused officers were granted bail in the sum of Rand 1, 500 each while the case was adjourned till May 9, 2014.
ENUGU—Leader of the pro-Biafra group, Biafra Zionist Movement, BZM, Barrister Benjamin Onwuka has claimed responsibility for last Saturday’s invasion of Enugu State Government House saying members of his group took control of the Enugu State seat of power for about four hours after they successfully hoisted the flag of the Republic of Biafra and some banners at the main gate.
He briefed newsmen at the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Press Centre, Enugu, Wednesday morning , where he claimed responsibility for the invasion, which he said was primarily to reclaim the old headquarters of the former Biafra Republic.
Onwuka dismissed speculations that the group was sponsored by some politicians in Enugu State explaining that the major target of the BZM members was to hoist the Biafran flag as a symbol of rebirth of the defunct Biafra Republic.
He said that members of the group who were not armed, were in the Government House from 3 am to 7am before soldiers dislodged them, insisting that they accomplished their mission.
He, however, warned that Nigeria should vacate the Biafra territory before March 31, 2014 or risk a bloody war, disclosing that his group had concluded plans to take over total control of Biafra land from April 1.
BZM as they are called is a new group in the South East of Nigeria and people are dissatisfied with their activities as the Country is yet to win the battle against the dreaded Boko Haram in the Northern part of Country. Could this be the rising of another terrorist group in the South East of the country?

A female student in Kenya has reportedly confessed to have deliberately infected 324 men with the deadly HIV virus, saying she is on a mission to destroy the society by infecting 2000 more by the end of this year.
Among the 324 she claims to have infected, 156 are students, 3 politicians and the rest are married men, lecturers, lawyers, some celebrities among others. She says not a day passes before she has sex with at least 4 men and without protection.
The unnamed young lady also adds that she is on a revenge mission because it’s the same men that destroyed her life by infecting her with AIDS. She is only 19 years and she is in 2nd year.
Read her story below;
“I’m 19 and a 2nd year student here at Kabarak University. I joined this college a virgin though I have had boyfriends before,my parents are strict so having sex was never on my mind. September 22nd, 2013, is a day I will never forget, we went clubbing in town and got drunk with some senior students then went back hostels for party around 2am.
“I remember waking up naked to a guy called Javan with my private part painful and I realised he had sex with me when I was drunk. I only asked if he used a condom and he said yes.
“However, when taking bath i noticed sperms down there, i wanted to commit suicide, i feared getting pregnant and HIV, I took drug and hoped i was HIV free.
“In November, I tested HIV positive, I felt like cutting off my neck. I confronted the guy and he insisted he was clean that I got it from somewhere.
“I was so depressed and took alcohol to die. I even bought poison,the pain was just unbearable. How was I gonna face the world? I let my parents down. I gave up on the world and just wanted to end my life.
“Something came up in my mind that I should revenge. I hated men and I didn’t want to be near anymore. My future had been ruined, somehow someone had to pay.
“After a private therapy sessions, I gained strength not even my parents, friends knew of my conditions even up to now.
“I accepted my fate and promised to make all men I come across suffer. i know I am attractive and both married and unmarried men chase me left, right and center, luckily, my body has remained good and if anything my curves got better something you men like.
“I buried the good girl in me and became the bad girl. My goal was to infect as many as possible. So far, since December up to now, I have infected 324 men and I make sure to note down there list which I secretly keep. I plan to release it when I will be on my death bed.
“I know I have nothing left to do on earth but to wait for my death but before i do, men will get it.
“My target is over 2000 by the end of the year, pregnancy is out of question because I am on contraceptives. So I just do raw which most men here love. They don’t even question because my looks and body work greatly for me.
“Out of the 324 I have infected so far, about 156 are students here at the college, the remaining are married men outside, lecturers, lawyers, some celebs and 3 politicians. Not a day passes without me having sex, mostly four people per day.”
Boko Haram, Nigeria’s Islamist territorist group has released a new video mentioning elder statesmen as their target for attack.
The full text of his 28-minute video, delivered in Hausa, reads;
“My brethren…you should hold on to your weapons and continue fighting. Let them understand that our work is not confined to Yobe, Borno and Adamawa (states).
Make them understand that we are not restricted by emergency rule. They should understand we are under the canopy of Allah.
“This is the beginning. Yes, this is the beginning. “We Jama’atu Ahlissunnah Lidda’awati Wal Jihad are fighting Christians wherever we meet them and those who believe in democracy, those who pursue Western education wherever we meet them.
By Allah, we will kill whoever practices Democracy. “And you the infidels of Rivers State, Niger (Delta), the town of Jonathan, Shekau is talking to you (sounds of gunshots). Shekau is talking to you, that small boy that has become the nightmare of infidels is talking to you.
“Oh you the leader of the Niger Delta, you will soon see your refinery destroyed. You will in the incoming days see your refinery you are boasting about bombed. Our refinery is Allah.
“Niger-Delta you are in trouble. Jonathan you are in trouble…Ban ki-Moon you are in trouble, Bejamin Netanyahu you are in trouble, Queen Elizabeth, you are in trouble, Babangida, Kwankwaso, Shekarau, Kashim, Buhari, you are in trouble. “Yahaya Jingir…the cleric of Jos, the advocate of ‘Boko Halal’, right? We are Boko Haram, you are Boko Halal. You will see, bastard.
“We killed Albani of Zaria. We killed Albani of Zaria. Shekau killed Albani of Zaria.Tomorrow he will kill Jingir, the day after tomorrow he will kill Dapchia, the next day he will kill Wapchama, next he will kill Shehu of Borno, Ado Bayero. We rebel against you, between us and you is enmity and rancour until you believe only in Allah.
“The reason why I will kill you is you are infidels, you follow Democracy…Whoever follows Democracy is an infidel. This is Shekau, this is why I’m in enmity with you.
“Buhari is an infidel, Babangida is an infidel, Atiku is an infidel, late Yar’Adua was an infidel, Shehu of Borno is an infidel. You are all infidels. What makes you infidels is Democracy and constitution and western education…I therefore call on brethren in Kano to rise up and replicate the Baga attack.
“All these infidels we are the ones killing them. We enjoy shedding their blood. “The Koran must be supreme, we must establish Islam in this country; Not only in Borno, we will henceforth destroy any schools wherever we see them.”
Just this morning, 25th February 2014, in Leonard’s street, Rosenteville, Johannesburg, South Africa, a white man of about 60 years old jumped down from a two storey building in an effort to take his own life. Our Johannesburg correspondent was at the scene of the incident to capture the picture of the diseased.
On interview, a neighbor who spoke on anonymous grounds said the death of the 60 year old man might be “another effect of the worsening economic situations in South Africa following the death of her founding father- Nelson Mandela and the coming general elections.”
As at press time, the body of the deceased is still lying down in front of the house he jumped from while police officers are carrying out their investigations.
More news on this is coming soon.

The will of the former president of South Africa Nelson Mandela has been read. The anti apartheid struggle icon left 64 million South African rands for his family. 9 if his employees got 50,000 Rands each for their services to the late president. The children got 3 million rands each and his surviving wife Gracia got half of Mandela’s estate.
Mixed feelings aroused on the social media as Winnie Mandela was omitted from the will. Winnie didn’t get a cent from the will.
A status update on Facebook reads thus: “If Mandela truly forgave Winnie, why would he omit her in his will despite her struggles during the struggle?”
It will be recalled that some white sculptors had made a caricature of Mandela’s statue by inserting a rat in his ear.
