Miyetti Allah threatens Legal action against journalists over herdsmen killings

Chairman of the Nasarawa State Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Hussaini Mohammed, has vowed to take legal action against any journalist who writes any report incriminating Fulani herdsmen in the state from now on. 

Hussaini stated this in an interview with Daily Independent while reacting to the media reports about the killing of three police officers who were on their way to restore peace between Agatu and Fulani herdsmen in Maraba Udege in Nasarawa Local Government Area of the state.
“Why should the word Fulani herdsmen be used anytime there is killings of people? That amount to criminalizing the entire Fulani tribe and we will not take that again. The media is the one fuelling this hatred against the Fulani people and we will sue any journalist whose report reflect this henceforth. We are not in support of any Fulani man who kill or involved in any criminal activities, the police should arrest and prosecute any Fulani man if caught. Other tribes like the Niger Delta people started the kidnapping but nobody mentions Niger Delta whenever a kidnapper is arrested, but whenever killings is committed then it is the Fulani herdsmen, we can’t take this anymore.” he said

Lil Wayne reportedly bags eight-figure settlement in legal battle with Birdman, Cash Money and Universal Records

Rapper, Lil Wayne has finally come out victorious in his longstanding legal dispute against Birdman, Cash Money Records and Universal Records.
Recall that the two have been in a legal battle for a long period of time with Wayne accusing Birdman of owing him tens of millions of dollars, including an $8 million advance for “Tha Carter V,” plus $2 million once the album was finished.
As some point, Wayne threatened to terminate his Young Money label, which is under the Cash Money/Universal umbrella.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Wayne’s attorney, Howard King, filed a notice with the court on May 23 that all sides are ready to dismiss the lawsuit.
Sources say Universal wrote a big check to settle the suit and none of the money came from Birdman. The amount, is “well over $10 million.”
The Insiders also revealed that Universal was comfortable with the massive payment because they believe they will recoup the profits from Drake and Nicki Minaj going forward  a major part of what Wayne was suing over.
As part of the arrangement, Lil Wayne is now officially done with Cash Money and the infamous “Tha Carter V” album will now be put out by Universal, according to The Blast.

Queen Elizabeth had eye surgery?for cataract in May, which explains why she

Britain’s 92-year-old Queen Elizabeth II underwent eye surgery to remove a cataract in May, Buckingham Palace said today.

“I can confirm that the queen successfully underwent a short, planned procedure to treat a cataract last month,” a palace spokesman said.  

In recent weeks the British monarch has been seen wearing sunglasses at a number of events, including the Royal Windsor Horse Show and Buckingham Palace garden parties.

Cataract surgery typically takes just 30 to 45 minutes under local anesthetic, but it can take an individual four to six weeks to fully recover. Although she turned 92 in April, the queen traditionally holds an official birthday on the second Saturday of June to enjoy more favourable weather. Her husband Prince Philip will then celebrate his 97th birthday on Sunday. The palace announced he had undergone successful hip surgery in April after retiring from public life last summer, having attended more than 22,000 engagements and delivered nearly 5,500 speeches over the years.
