For a young lady, Rosemary Naife,  life is no longer fair to her as she continue facing rejection from admirers and friends who used to envy her skin colour and beauty before she was bath acid barely two years ago by ex-lover, Paul Nwokobia, whom she claimed was culprit behind her deformation.

Even if she could afford means of providing herself plastic surgery, to the 25 years Delta state queen, no miracle can return her lost physique, not to talk of trauma she undergo daily anytime she remembers her former envious shape and discrimination confronts in public.

At night, she feels in different world because of darkness that covers her from shame, but as soon sun rise, she becomes uncomfortable with herself due to her horrible look; one side of her head been washed off by the acid poured on her unaware.

Shortly before the incident, Nnaife was known as a dazzling lady with lot of admirers in her area, but Paul was the regular man she moved with until things tore apart between the two, and seem not reconcilable.

In the video footage, the security operatives are seen driving away in two white Hilux vans and a white bus after the raid at the Abuja house.
The reason for the raid is not fully available as at press time but speculations indicate it could not be unconnected with alleged embezzlement of public funds while the former First Lady was in office.

Former president Goodluck Jonathan himself after his tenure was criticised by some civil rights groups that he aided corruption under his watch as the nation’s leader.

Multiple sources in Gambia confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES that Mr. Barrow is alive.

Jeffery Smith, a journalist with Vanguard Africa, confirmed that Mr. Barrow was alive.

Mr. Barrow has remained in Gambia to ensure he is sworn in as president on January 19 after he defeated outgoing leader, Yahya Jammeh, in the December 1 election.

Mr. Jammeh, who initially conceded to his opponent, later recanted and has since vowed to stay on in office.

President Muhammadu Buhari is currently leading a West African, ECOWAS, mediation asking Mr. Jammeh to step down.

The Nigerian government on Wednesday said it still hoped to resolve the Gambian conflict peacefully after Mr. Jammeh accused ECOWAS of declaring war on Gambia by insisting that all options including military deployment were on the table to make Mr. Jammeh leave power.

The General overseer said, “In Mountain of Fire, we don’t celebrate Christmas because the root is demonic.”

He also said, “Many a Nigerian pastor swathes himself in that rapacious cloak even as it evolves into an iron cage from which he mesmerizes his habitually-gullible followers, leading them on by a leash, into his iron cage.

“It is on scriptural records that Jesus Christ, when winding up his mission of salvation about two thousand years ago, expressed his ambivalence about finding faith in the world when he returns.

“He must have seen with precision the impending decadence awaiting Christendom after his departure.”

He also urged people to be mindful of their criticisms of men of God. “Be careful what you say about a man of God,”

Do you agree with him?

Gambia Electoral Commission Head Flees Country

​The Chairman of the Gambian Electoral Commission has fled the country following threats to his life, his nephew said on Tuesday, January 3.

Alieu Momar Njai had declared Adama Barrow the winner of the Dec. 1 presidential election, but President Yahya Jammeh has refused to relinquish power, challenging the election results in court.

Modou Njai told journalists that his uncle had left the country because of the threats.

“He was not willing to leave but the family had to put pressure on him.

“I understand that he is currently outside Gambia,’’ he said.

Security forces had earlier occupied the office of the electoral commission and denied staff access for weeks, but have since left the premises.

Mr. Barrow said on Monday that he would take power on Jan. 19 as mandated by the constitution, in spite of Mr. Jammeh’s court challenge.

After over two decades in power, Mr. Jammeh, 51, lost the election to Mr. Barrow, a former real estate agent who was little known even in Gambia before he announced his candidacy.

Plane Crash Averted As Drunk Pilot Passes Out In Cockpit With 99 Passengers, Others

​A pilot who allegedly passed out in the cockpit of a Boeing 737 in Canada has been arrested on suspicion of being drunk.

Police in Calgary say Capt. Miroslav Gronych was “behaving oddly before he became unconscious in the cockpit” on Saturday, December 31, 2016.

According to CNN, the plane with 99 passengers and six crew members, was scheduled to fly to Regina before heading to Winnipeg and Cancun, Mexico.

Gronych, a 37-year-old Slovak national, was charged with having control of an aircraft while impaired.

“Initial tests conducted by police indicate the pilot was severely impaired by alcohol,” police said in a statement.

Budget airline Sunwing apologized for their pilot’s behaviour and commended the rest of the crew for their diligence in handling what they described as a “very unfortunate matter.”

The airline statement read: “Dear Customers, we will like to take the opportunity to advise you of an incident that occurred earlier this morning.

“We can confirm that shortly before 7 a.m. local time, the gate agents, first officer and crew of Sunwing flight 595, departing from Calgary and destined for Cancun, determined that the Captain was unfit to fly and reported this accordingly.

“The Captain was immediately escorted off of the aircraft and the incident is now under investigation with local authorities.

“We are very appreciative of our crew’s diligence in handling this very unfortunate matter in accordance with procedures.

“We were able to secure a new Captain and are pleased to report that our customers are now en route to their destination after experiencing a minimal delay.

“We are very apologetic for any upset that this has caused and would like to assure our customers that safety remains our utmost priority.”

Sunwing said the plane took off a short time after with a different pilot.

Scorpion Goal: I’ve Never Scored Such Before In My Life – Olivier Giroud 

* Arsenal FC beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in the English Premier League match on Sunday, January 1, 2017 to open an account that they are indeed title contenders

* One time out of favour striker, Frenchman Olivier Giroud started the victory party by scoring a sumptuous scorpion goal that made everyone ecstatic

The race for who becomes the Premier League king continues as Arsenal Football Club brushed past Crystal Palace at the Emirates yesterday by two unreplied goals to show they are real title contenders and not pretenders. 

Olivier Giroud put the ball into the net in the first half when Arsenal dangerman Alexis Sanchez crossed the ball to him, before Alex Iwobi scored a looping header to put the match beyond their visitors, Crystal Palace. The goal by Giroud was a statement by the former Ligue One player that he deserves a permanent first team shirt with the Gunners. 

The Frenchman striker’s goal was a bit similar to Manchester United Henrik Mikhitaryn’s scorpion goal in a recent EPL match. However, the Arsenal goal poacher’s own was out of this world. 

The goal was nicknamed “The Perfect Goal” by some football pundits.
