Football lover tattoos his team’s shirt on his body

Football lover tattoos his team?s shirt on his body

A Brazilian football fan tattooed his team's home shirt on his body.
Jose Mauricio dos Anjos, a Flamengo superfan, has spent 90 hours in agony over the past year to get Flamengo’s red and black uniform inked on his body. After 32 painful sessions, the replica of the club’s 2015 home shirt was completed on Friday.

The 33-year-old told Vice Brazil: "People ask me if I don’t find it strange that I’m always wearing a Flamengo shirt. And I just don’t. To me, it’s normal."
The father-of-three said he has always wanted a tattoo to honour his team, and at 18 he got their mascot tattoed on his biceps. He tried to save money and even sold his motorcycle to afford the tattoo of his team's shirt on his torso. He paid for the initial tattoo of parts of the short over his shoulder. However, as they got started on the process, a tattoo artist offered to do the rest for free.

After finishing up his front, he went on to his back where the number "10" is a constant tribute to the iconic Zico. Jose said he "never felt any regret", partly because he got to meet his idol Zico in December, last year.

Because of his tattoo, he has naturally become a local celebrity in his club’s home city of Rio de Janeiro. 
On his encounter with his idol Zico, Jose said: "He was shocked, and touched it to make sure it wasn’t painted on. I asked him to sign my skin and I then got his signature tattooed."
He added that other Flamengo players thought the tattoo was "cool".
Jose's family has accepted his tattoo, and he even said he might get more inking for his team.

North Korea agrees to invite US experts to shut down Nuclear test site next month

North Korea agrees to invite US experts to shut down Nuclear test site next month

North Korea promised to close its atomic test site next month and invite US weapons experts to the country as Donald Trump expressed optimism about securing a nuclear deal in his summit with the secretive regime.  

The reported pledge from the North’s leader Kim Jong Un follows weeks of whirlwind diplomacy that saw Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in agree to pursue the complete denuclearisation of the peninsula during a historic summit on Friday.

“Kim said, during the summit with President Moon, that he would carry out the closing of the nuclear test site in May,” Seoul’s presidential spokesman Yoon Young-chan said.  Kim said he “would soon invite experts of South Korea and the US as well as journalists to disclose the process to the international community with transparency”, Yoon added.

Tension has been high on the flashpoint peninsula since last year when the North carried its sixth and most powerful atomic test and test-fired missiles capable of reaching the US mainland.  “Kim said ‘the US feels repelled by us, but once we talk, they will realise that I am not a person who will fire a nuclear weapon to the South or the US or target the US,” according to Yoon.  “If we meet often (with the US), build trust, end the war and eventually are promised no invasion, why would we live with the nuclear weapons?'”  Kim also slammed speculation during his meeting with Moon that the Punggye-ri test site was already unusable after an underground tunnel there reportedly collapsed.  “As they will see once they visit, there are two more tunnels (in the test site) that are even bigger… and they are in good condition,” he was quoted as saying.

.The US leader has been eager to play up his role in achieving a breakthrough with Pyongyang through his “maximum pressure” campaign involving tough rhetoric, strengthened global sanctions and diplomatic efforts to further isolate the regime.  “Months ago, do you remember what they were saying? ‘He’s going to get us into nuclear war, they said,'” Trump told supporters in Washington Township, north of Detroit.  “No, strength is going to keep us out of nuclear war, not going to get us in!” he added.  But Trump also sounded a note of caution, saying he was prepared to walk away if US demands for North Korea to relinquish its atomic arsenal in a complete, verifiable and irreversible way were not met.  

His remarks came as his new Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told ABC News he had a “good conversation” with Kim during his secret visit to Pyongyang over Easter weekend, adding that Kim was “prepared to… lay out a map that would help us achieve” denuclearisation.

'Everything you saw about me at BBNaija was real and I don’t have any regrets' - Cee-C



In an interview she granted Sunday Punch, controversial housemate and 1st runner-up at the just-concluded Big Brother Naija reality TV show, Cee-C revealed some intimate details about herself and all that happened in the house, among other interesting issues.

See excerpts below...

When did you decide to participate in Big Brother Naija?

A few weeks after I saw the advert on Instagram, I decided to attend the audition and I was successful.

Did you share your plans to participate in the reality show with your family?

No, I did not tell anybody.

How did they react when they found out you were going to be a housemate?

They know I have always wanted to be on TV, so they were not surprised about my decision. The fact that I made it into the house despite the large number of people that auditioned also impressed them.

What are some of the most important lessons you took away from the Big Brother House?

I learnt to live and let live. Also, adversities are opportunities for you to shine, so make the best of it.

If you were to go back into the house, what would you do differently?

I think I would be an older version of myself; this means I would be more mature.

Was your attitude part of your strategy to win the game?

I am always myself. Everything you saw in the house was real.

What do you regret doing while in the house?

I don’t have any regrets.

What’s the next stage for you?

This is a new environment, so I am trying to get used to it. I’m looking at the opportunities I have to know the ones to go for and make money. I hope to act and I’m also a music artiste.

Were you in a relationship before the competition?

No, I wasn’t and I never thought of finding love while in the house. I was there to play a game and I planned to do whatever it took to win.

If you could date one person in the house, who would it be?

Nobody. I wasn’t attracted to anybody in the house. As regards the kind of man I like, the God factor is very important. It also has to be someone who understands and loves me deeply.

Nigerian Army parades 3 suspected herdsmen involved in Benue killings after?fierce gun battle



The Nigerian Army yesterday paraded three suspected militants captured by its troops after an exchange of gunfire at Tormatar village in Benue State.

The Commanding Officer of 72 Battalion, Lt. Col. Suleiman Muhammad, said troops of the 707 Special Forces Brigade in Makurdi, apprehended the trio while they were converging on a camp to launch further attacks on the state.

“Troops of the 707 Special Forces Brigade conducted a fighting patrol on a suspected militia herdsmen camp located close to Tormatar village on Thursday. The armed men were massing up for another possible attack on innocent citizens in the local government area. On getting to the militia camp, the herdsmen fired at our troops but the troops immediately returned fire and dislodged them,” he said.

He gave the names of the suspects as; Abubakar Umaru, Adamu Likita and Yusufa Alhaja. One of them was wounded during the gun battle. The weapons recovered from the armed militia include two AK 47 rifles with six rounds of 7.62MM special ammunition, one AK47 rifle and five rounds of 7.62mm special were also found in the bush in Naka village.

One of the suspects, however, told newsmen that they were grazing their cattle when their masters handed them the guns to run away with them after the soldiers engaged them in a gun duel.
