241 Nigerian women Including 5 nursing mothers deported from Europe (photo)
241 Nigerian women including five nursing mothers were repatriated to the country on Tuesday following their failed attempt to take the illegal Libyan routes to Europe.  

According to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), a total of 257 Nigerians offered themselves to be returned to the country with assistance of the International Organisation for Migration.  They were transported in a chartered Airbus A330-200 flight with Registration number 5A- LAT at 9.15pm therough the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

The returnees, among them two children, four male adults, four teenage boys, were received by Suleiman Yakubu, the Zonal Coordinator of NEMA Southwest.  Yakubu enjoined the returnees to embrace the change mantra of the federal government.  He urged them to remain positive and focused on contributing their quota to national development, instead of seeking greener pastures where it doesn’t exist.  

Yakubu noted that they would not be treated as second class citizens in their own country, unlike what they face abroad after migrating illegally.  He disclosed that the European Union was providing the reintegration assistance, urging them to make use of the initiative and better their lives.

This comes after the two listed their Mediterranean mansion in Calabasas, California for $15 million earlier this month.
It's yet to be revealed why she made the move, but in August 2016 the couple had a domestic dispute in an Atlanta hotel. Police were called after he allegedly bit her hand during an argument.
Tamar and Vincent started dating in 2003, after her sister Toni Braxton, who had been working with him introduced them together.
The pair got married in 2008 and the have a 4-year-old son, Logan Vincent.

But here's how MediaTakeOut is reporting why Tamar is divorcing Vince
MediaTakeOut.com just spoke with someone IN THE KNOW who explains WHY Tamar Braxton is filing to divorce her husband Vince. According to the insider, Tamar has for all practical purposes – LOST “RESPECT” for Vince.
The insider, who spoke with MediaTakeOut.om on the condition of anonymity said, “Tamar has been really vicious towards Vince lately. She told him that she’s NOT physically attracted to him . . . and she blames HIM for all the stuff that’s going on with her career.”
According to our insider, Tamar’s album FLOPPING two weeks ago – was the beginning of the end of their marriage. The tipster added, “I think she looked at her marriage as a business . . . and if she couldn’t get what she wanted out of Vince [career success] – what does she need him around for.”
There’s more. Vince recently had a GIANT multi-million dollar judgment against him – by Tamar’s former record label. Our insider believes that Tamar may want to get OUT FROM UNDER THAT DEBT too. The insider explained, “Tamar ain’t dumb. She knows that if she divorces [Vince], she may not have to pay those millions.”
Vince and Tamar’s relationship had gotten so bad that he was no longer FILMING Tamar &Vince – the couple’s reality show.
So what do you think . . . is Tamar JUSTIFIED.

Eagle Schnapps participates in the Ofala Festival

Eagle Schnapps, Nigeria’s No. 1 prayer drink joined the good people of Onitsha to celebrate the Ofala Festival.
The Ofala Festival, an age long tradition of the Onitsha Kingdom, celebrated only once a year, precisely in the month of October, the period that is the climax of the celebration of the New Yam.
Four days before the festival, the Obi goes into seclusion. He retreats to commune with his ancestors, and to thank them for protecting him and his subjects for the past one year as well as pray for peace and prosperity in the year to come. At the end of the retreat, the Obi emerges during the Ofala to bless his subjects and say prayers for the community.
Ofala is celebrated annually beginning from the coronation of the Obi to his death, the latter of which is called "the last Ofala”. One of the highlights of the festival is the appearance of the Obi in his Ofala Regalia. A Cannon shot announces the entrance of the Obi who is usually dressed in ceremonial robe and carries a bronze sword on his hand, he walks to the sides of the arena or a third of the arena acknowledging the cheers of the gathering.
The Obi then retires and subsequently, the Red Cap Chiefs pays homage to him according to seniority, thereafter, both the Obi and the Chiefs reappear after the firing of another cannon shot. During the second appearance, the Obi dances in the arena, something that is rarely seen and his steps cover more distance than the first appearance. Then the visiting chiefs and guests pay homage to the Obi.
Amongst the Guest that the current Obi, His Majesty, Nnaemeka Alfred Ugochukwu Achebe received was the Eagle Schnapps team led by the Mr. Mobolaji Alalade, Head of Marketing,   Intercontinental Distillers Limited, Makers of Eagle Schnapps.
Mr. Alalade congratulated the Obi and the entire Onitsha Kingdom on the success of another Ofala Festival. He prayed for the peace of the people and the long reign of the Obi in good health. He said that Eagle Schnapps would in the spirit of the “Spirit” continue to promote and support tradition and culture. Guests to the Eagle Schnapps stand at the festival enjoyed beautiful culture display and went home with exciting prizes.

'Buhari-led government begged our son to join the Change Agenda, DSS provided him with security since his return' - Family of wanted ex-pension boss, Abdulrasheed Maina says


The Family members of wanted former chairman of Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, held a press conference in Kaduna state today to speak on the 'travails' of their son. At the press conference, the spokesperson of the Family,  Aliyu Maina, said that their son is not a fraudster but a messiah who brought reforms into the pension scheme.

Aliyu Maina said based on their son's “sterling record” at the  Presidential Task Force, some government officials in the Buhari-led administration, approached him to join the “change agenda”. Aliyu wondered why government officials were denying his brother,  when the DSS provided security for him.

 
"It is on record that Abdulrasheed Maina’s reform put to a stop the fraudulent withdrawal of huge sums from both the Nigerian Pension Board, the Nigerian Police Pension Board, etc. Perhaps it is his noble efforts that made him enviable to the present administration when they came into power to convince him to come back and assist in its ‘CHANGE’ agenda,” he said.
"Abdulrasheed was in fact invited by this administration and he was promised security to come and clean up the mess and generate more revenue to government by blocking leakages
“He succumbed to the present administration and came back to Nigeria. He has been working with the DSS for quite some time and he was given necessary security. There is a letter from the attorney-general of the federation where he gave his own legal opinion regarding the court verdict which was submitted to the Civil Service Commission and the head of service respectively. So, one wonders why all the agencies and various individuals responsible for his return are now denying.” Aliyu said.
When asked to comment on Maina’s whereabouts, he said:
“As you know Abdulrasheed Maina had been a target of in the past, so experience is the best teacher; but when his security is guaranteed, he will surface from wherever he is and tell Nigerians the truth,”
"All the same, we have contacted our solicitors, Messrs Mamman Nasir & Co and instructed them to act appropriately. We equally know that Abdulrasheed Maina is in possession of so facts that are against the cabal and interesting to the Nigerian populace, which he will disclose soonest. One must ask whether it is an offence for somebody to serve his fatherland,” he said.
The family also claimed that Maina inherited the houses which the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) recently seized in Kaduna.
He said the anti-graft agency had ordered the family members to vacate their residential house in Kaduna.

Check out the world
The shoes above cost a staggering $15.1 million and are known to be the "world’s most expensive shoes".

The shoes are encrusted with large and extremely rare pink and blue diamonds, plus flawless white diamonds and another 1000 pointer diamonds. According to reports, the larger jewels alone are worth in excess of $13 million.

The creator, 35-year-old British designer Debbie Wingham, is known for making very expensive record-breaking items.  She shot to fame with the "Most Expensive Black Diamond Dress" in Dubai five years ago. The shoes will be her fourth "world’s most expensive" showcase, which includes the world’s most expensive cake, which she made in 2015.
The expensive shows were commissioned by a family from the United Arab Emirates, who wanted "a unique piece of diamond art for a loved one’s birthday gift," according to a release from the artist.

All of the diamonds in the shoes are set in platinum and the zips and the plaque underneath the shoes are solid gold.

A rose gold accent was added to give a slight contrast. The gems are set in piped and quilted details, which resemble cake decoration.

"He's 'debasing our nation"- Republican Bob Corker also blasts Trump and Trump responds on Twitter





"He
Before Republican Senator Jeff Flakes blasted Donald Trump on the floor of the senate on Tuesday, another Republican Senator, Bob Coker also lambasted the President of the United States earlier on the same day.
On Tuesday morning Senator Bob Corker accused Trump of "debasing" the country with "untruths" and "name-calling". This feud between Trump and Bob Corker sullied a policy lunch with Republican senators on Tuesday.
The lunch was meant to be a unifying moment for Republicans to rally around tax reform, but the war of words between Trump and Corker instead revealed the deep fault lines that exist between some elements of the party and the president.
Corker told reporters ahead of Trump’s arrival on Capitol Hill for the lunch: "You would think he would aspire to be the president of the United States and act like a president of the United States. But that’s just not going to be the case, apparently."
Trump arrived on Capitol Hill just after 1 p.m. where he was greeted by the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, with whom Trump has also quarreled. As the men walked to the policy lunch, a protester threw some small Russian flags at the president and shouted: "Trump is treason".
"He
Despite what happened before Trump and Corker went in for the meeting, several senators said their tussle did not arise during the discussion, which focused on taxes, trade and judicial nominees as members dined on meatloaf and cherry pie.
Leaving the meeting, Corker told reporters: "I ate my lunch like I normally do at policy. I normally don’t speak much at policy. It was a normal day."
The rebuke from Republican senators Bob Corker and Jeff Flake are said to be the fiercest rebukes of the president yet from members of his own party.
The war of words with the president and Corker played out across Twitter and cable TV in the hours prior to the lunch but was left out of the policy lunch. Corker, the chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee, said world leaders were "very aware" that much of what Trump said "is untrue". The president, he told CNN, was "debasing our nation" and "has great difficulty with the truth on many issues".
Corker wrote on social media himself, tweeting: "Same untruths from an utterly untruthful president. #AlertTheDaycareStaff."
"He
That was a reference to a comment he made earlier this month, when he said: "It’s a shame the White House has become an adult daycare center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning."
Corker was considered for both vice-president and secretary of state and was a key Trump ally during much of the 2016 campaign. He has since become a vocal critic, claiming Trump could be setting the nation on a path to a third world war.
Just like Jeff Flakes, Corker has revealed he will not run for re-election after his tenure ends. He later took to Twitter to praise his colleague Flakes for his speech criticising Trump.
He wrote: .@JeffFlake is a true conservative, an outstanding senator and a cherished friend."
"He
Meanwhile, as expected, Trump has taken to his favorite news site, Twitter, to call out both senators.
See his tweets below.
