The General Officer Commanding, 81 Division, Maj. Gen. Kenneth Minimah, has said Colonel K.I Yusuf and Staff Sergeant Adeomi, who were accosted by Governor Babatunde Fashola for taking the designated Bus Rapid Transit lane on July 17, 2012, will pay the mandatory fine. The fine for taking BRT lane is N25, 000.
This is just as the Nigerian Army began the court martial of 11 soldiers for various offences in Lagos on Tuesday. Minimah said at a press briefing that the Nigerian Army was not above the law.
“They passed the BRT lane and it’s a traffic offence and they’ll pay the fine. The fact that he has apologised to the governor does not mean that he won’t face the law. He will pay the fine,” he said
Ghanaian President, John Mills, died on Tuesday, few hours after announcing to Parliament that he was leaving for Nigeria.
The British Broadcasting Corporation reports that 68-year-old Mills, who had been suffering from throat cancer, died in the capital, Accra a few hours after being taken ill.
Hmmmmm........ He died in his home country, and his death was announced a few minutes after it happened. I'm sure the case would have been completely different in Nigeria. God help this country!!!!!!

After the proposed exit of Steve Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey will be joining the American Idol as a judge- and will also be setting a record.
Nick Canon's wife and the 5-time Grammy winner will reportedly earn $18 million in one year, making her the highest paid judge on any music competition show.
Now, that's what 'being a superstar' means.
How much did this man steal exactly????????

Sweden international and one of the iconic strikers in world football, Zlatan Ibrahimovich, has officially joined French Club Paris Saint-Germain from Italian giants, AC Milan. At 30 years, the player who lived up to his rating at the Euro 2012 still commands a huge fee as £18 million was paid as transfer fee while the player will earn £10.2 million each year over a 3-year period.
Nobody is above the law. I can imagine Governor Fashola's anger here- the state governor chose to join the traffic without making any noise while someone who considers himself untouchable violated the traffic law by driving on the BRT lane.
Apart from the fine and embarrassment, I'm sure the Nigerian Army will still deal with the officer. Ouch!

Kris Humphries just signed a 2-year contract with the Brooklyn Nets for a whooping $24 million. This is a major improvement over his last 1-year contract that fetched him $8 million. But then, it looks like a set-up to me. Check this out:
Kris Humphries is Kim Kardashian's ex-husband; Brooklyn Nets is partly owned by Jay-Z; Jay-Z is Kanye West's best friend; Kanye is currently dating Kim Kardashian!
Did you just say 'Wow'? That's what I said as well.
