Suicide Bomber Attacks Police Boss Convoy, Kills 11

A suicide attack targeting a senior police official’s convoy on Monday has killed 11 people and wounded 20, a rescue source said, with the senior officer said to be unharmed.
Police said the attack in the Taraba state capital Jalingo saw a motorcycle ram into the police convoy amid a wave of similar violence attributed to Islamist group Boko Haram. Authorities provided an official death toll of three people, including two passers-by and the bomber, with a police motorcyclist wounded.
However, the rescue official put the death toll at 11, including a policeman, with 20 wounded.
“Eleven people died,” the rescue official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to talk to the press. “One policeman was among them. There are 20 injured.”
In describing the attack, police spokesman Ibiang Mbaseki said “a bomber on a motorcycle rammed into the police rider (motorcycle escort). The bomb went off. The windshield of the (state) police commissioner’s car was shattered.”
Hmmmmm...... These guys are becoming more dangerous ooooo.

Charles Taylor Convicted of War Crimes

A UN-backed Sierra Leone court convicted former Liberian president Charles Taylor of war crimes on Thursday, the first African head of state to be found guilty by an international tribunal.
Taylor, 64, was charged with murder, rape, conscripting child soldiers and sexual slavery during intertwined wars in Liberia and Sierra Leone, in which more than 50 000 people were killed. The court found him guilty of only some of the charges.
Charles Taylor's reign as Liberian president was characterised by tyranny. He was eventually chased out of Liberia and was granted asylum by the Nigerian government. The highpoint of his stay in Nigeria was his attempt to escape from the country in order to evade UN-backed arrest, but his plan was foiled.

Bomb Blast Rocks 2 'This Day' Offices

A loud explosion rocked an area  Abuja on Thursday followed by smoke and ambulances headed in the direction of the blast, with injuries reported. Reports have it that the first  bomb blast was in the Abuja Thisday office in Jabi and was carried out by a suicide bomber who drove into the media house before detonating the bomb hence  blowing away the building ‘s roof.
Another blast was also reported at the Kaduna Thisday office according to witnesses.
But Mr Yushau Shuaib  a National Emergency Management Agency spokesman said the Abuja Thisday blast “occurred inside the premises of a national newspaper,” adding that “a preliminary investigation seems to indicate that the explosive device was planted somewhere within the premises, not likely a case of suicide bombing.”
An AFP correspondent heard the blast and saw ambulances heading towards a district where a bus station and newspaper office are located.
A police spokesman said “we heard something like that happened, but we don’t have the details yet.”
A spokesman for the National Emergency Management Agency said “it’s true there was an explosion at Jabi (district).”
“NEMA officials are on the ground,” said Yushau Shuaib. “They are trying to move those injured to the hospitals, but we don’t have any information on casualties yet.”
happened at about 11:30 a.m.

Van Vicker Arrested by the SSS; Misses AMAA

According to gist getting in from Bola Aduwo on her blog, top Ghanaian actor, Van Vicker was arrested in Lagos for possession of some arms last weekend.
Van Vicker was billed to attend the just concluded Africa Movie Academy Awards in Lagos on Sunday but missed the event.
He was reported to have been arrested by some men of the State Security Services (SSS) at the airport in Nigeria when some guns were found in his luggage.
He then told the SSS that the guns were props guns brought in for a movie. 
Not convinced enough, he was taken to the SSS office in Ikoyi, Lagos for further investigation, where he spent the night.
The gist further has it that Van Vicker later tried contacting his families and a colleague, Uche Jombo, who was already at AMAA.
His message sent through a BlackBerry Messager (BBM) to Uche Jombo, which she didn't receive due too low battery, was received the next day.

Uche has reportedly helped with the release of the light skinned actor.

Taiye Taiwo Responds to Age Cheat Rumour

Taiye Taiwo has reacted angrily to the rumour making the rounds that while he claimed  to be  27 years old on April 16, his twin celebrated his 39th birthday in Lagos. See his response below:
”I don’t know what kind of sick joke this is, or the kind of sick person who will come up with it,” he tells Kick Off “I did not even know my twin. I was very young when my father told me that she died when we were young.
”Why is it that people are always looking for a way to bring others down? I don’t understand it.”
Apparently, his twin is dead and it's not even a guy. I knew that joke would go too far. Pele jare, Ejire.
