Literature / Amara (short Story)  continuation by thankgod(m): Last month on Sun 03 at 03:20pm
BAM! Lizard number three!
Amara instantly shut her eyes and looked away again, then she heard the squashed reptile flesh being yanked off the wall and. Amara quickly looked away. She was done playing spectator to this grotesque scene.
WHAT? Amara’s eyes instantly shot open in disbelief. She most definitely heard wrong. But to her utter disappointment, Mama Ebike held the half-dead lizard out to her.
“No!” She instantly refused, shaking her head and not concealing her repelled frown.“I…I don’t want,”
“Didn’t your mummy ever tell you it’s rude to refuse something when offered?” Mama Ebike asked with a raised brow to the girl’s disbelief. “You must try it. It’s nice – very, very nice.” Something was certainly wrong somewhere with this woman, and speaking of her “Mummy,” Amara remembered she was yet to find her family. She was frightened now.
“I don’t want,” Amara put her foot down. “I’m going to find my mummy and….”
“You’re not going anywhere until you eat this lizard!” Mama Ebike no longer sounded friendly now. Then she advanced towards Amara with impatience. “Don’t waste my time. Take it now!”
“No!” Amara shook her head and backed away. Suddenly remembering she posessed legs, she turned and ran straight for the staircase. The crazy woman would have to get her Lizard-grabbing hands on her first. Amara was relieved as she got to the first floor now.
Spinning in dismay, Amara almost tripped over and wet herself in horror at the sight of Mama Ebike, whom now dashed up the stairs with such pace; and she was not alone – the bloodied reptile was still in her grasp. “Eat!”
“No!” Amara took off again. “Leave me alone!” Never in her life had she been this scared; not even her almost fatal encounter with the neighbors’ Pit-bull early last year amounted to this.
Amara was almost on the second floor now, with her family’s apartment just around the corner. Mama Ebike’s feet stamped loud and fast right after her, but Amara was swift enough and rushed in. Slamming the door shut, she bolted it completely and frantically turned the keys.
Without waiting, Amara spun and darted straight for her bedroom where she also locked herself in; and then she hopped on the bed till her back was against the wall, before burying her head between her knees. Was she safe now? Where was Mama Ebike? What was going on out there?
Amara pressed her eyes shut for a moment that almost seemed like forever.
“Sleepy, sleepy!”
Raising her head, Amara froze. Standing before her was none other than Junior who threw her a playful smirk.
“Junior?” She called all puzzled.
“Is Amara still asleep?” The male voice came from outside which got Amara flying off the bed without hesitation. Pushing passed her brother, she raced out to the parlour where both their parents stood.
“There you are!”
“Daddy!” Amara called with such relief before suddenly rushing and clinging to him to both their surprise.
“Oh! Okay! Someone really missed me,” her surprised father said throwing his similarly puzzled wife a glance. “But we weren’t gone that long now,”
“I know,” Amara muttered with her face still buried into his abdomen while her body still trembled.
“We just went to buy a gift for Aunty Lara’s birthday at the supermarket,” Junior emerged from the room.
“It’s tomorrow,” their father said gesturing to the large wrapped gift on the large glass dining table.
“Yes, dear,” their mother added she gently placed a round, covered white ceramic dish on the glass dining table. “You were sound asleep and we didn’t need to bother you.” But Amara’s teenage mind was still processing her close-to-real nightmare. Her heart still pounded hard. Dream or no dream, she was telling.
“Mummy, daddy…” She called. “I saw…”
“Hmm. Mummy, it smells nice,” Junior commented as his mother lifted the lid. “Can I taste…”
“No!” Their mother said while the escaping steam graced her nostrils. “Mummy Ebike’s dish isn’t bad at all.”
“Mummy Ebike?” Amara’s eyes shot open.
“We saw her on our way up,” her mother replied. “She cooked a lot today and was nice enough to share.” Then she picked a large piece of the spiced meat and rewarded herself a bite. “Hmm! Darling, you should try this,”
“What’s that anyways?” Her husband asked approaching her.
“I don’t know, but it’s probably one of her native dishes,” she replied raising another piece to his mouth. “Here,’’
“Hmm…Sweetheart!” He muttered.
“Mummy, what about me?” Junior was frowning now, of which his mother reciprocated.
“Fine! Taste… before you give me a headache. ” Amara watched the scene before her in bewilderment. She had a lot to say but felt so numb at the same time.
“It tastes like chicken!” Junior’s eyes were wide with excitement now as he licked his lips.
“I don’t think it’s chicken,” his mother corrected.
“Well, whatever this is, it’s finger-licking good,” her husband said with an impressed grin.
“Amara, why are you just standing there?” Her mother’s voice suddenly pulled her from her thoughts.
“Yes,” her father agreed. “You’ve been quiet.”
“Here,” Her mother approached her with a large piece. “Have a taste.”
Then Amara screamed.

The End

Literature / Amara (short Story) by thankgod(m): Last month on Sun 03 at 03:13pm
AMARA (short story)  written by David Drama

Amara slowly descended the staircase, step-by-step. Where had everyone gone this Saturday afternoon? Waking up from her short nap, she was shocked to find an empty apartment. Both Mum and Dad were not in their bedroom, and neither was Junior, her younger brother of eleven anywhere to be found. Such had not happened since they moved to this part of the Lagos metropolis almost six years ago. Never! Was Amara to be worried? The flight of stairs led out to the backyard of the two-storey apartment building Amara’s family lived with other residents.
“Amara,” the voice called as she finally stepped out to the backyard. “How are you, my dear?” It was none other than Mama Ebike, the fair-skinned neighbor who lived on the ground floor. She was a seamstress who worked from home in her hovel erected right behind the residence. Amara saw she had a broom in hand and busied herself sweeping the front of her store.
“F-Fine,” the fourteen year-old replied with a confused countenance which Mama Ebike seemed to notice as she adjusted her red scarf.
“Are you going somewhere?” She asked flashing her habitual smile.
“I can’t find my mummy and daddy,” Amara replied as she shook her head. “And Junior too; nobody is upstairs,”
“Are you sure?” Mama Ebike seemed surprised and Amara nodded. “Didn’t they say where they were going?”
“No, ma,” Amara replied. “I woke up and couldn’t find anybody,”
“But how?” Mama Ebike mused as she dropped the broom and stood arms akimbo. “We should look around. Come then – let us go.” Then the warm neighbor reached out towards the young girl and Amara eagerly stepped forward, very elated to have found help – but that was a second right before she suddenly froze on her tracks.
“Mummy Ebike!” She exclaimed in alarm as her eyes flashed open and then pointed towards the woman’s direction. “Look!” Amara wondered how her eyes had not noticed before. Following her finger, Mama Ebike turned to see the army of Agama lizards quietly basking on the wall directly behind her – then she simply giggled and scoffed.
“Funny child,” she teased. “Are you afraid of lizards?” She asked, but Amara was not going to admit to one of her biggest fears, and almost every other crawling creature that there was.
“I don’t just like them,” she replied, shaking her head and not making eye-contact. There was no way she was taking a step further. Mama Ebike was laughing now.
“My dear, they’re still God’s creatures, you know?” She asked wearing her warm smile while Amara made a face.
“I don’t care,” her point was very apparent.
“They’re not so bad,” said Mama Ebike, and then Amara saw her take off a leg of her slipper – and then without warning, swung for the wall and crushed the nearest lizard with the hard sole making Amara flinch right where she stood. Then to her total shock, the child watched her neighbor grab the mashed up lizard, raise it to her mouth, and then bite a large chunk off it. Then she began chewing. “In fact….they taste wonderful.”
The look on Amara’s face was beyond description now. As much as Mama Ebike was a friend of the family, she heard “Daddy” about once or twice describe this woman before her by the term, “offish.” But Amara was yet to look up the word in the dictionary, but she was sure of one thing – it was no compliment. Mama Ebike swallowed the rest of her “snack” in delight now and was smiling warmly again, but she could not blame the young girl for not reciprocating. “Why are you staring like the worst has just happened?”
“Huh?” Amara unconsciously let out with her eyes still wide open. “You…You just ate…”
“And?” Mama Ebike instantly rebuffed. “Aren’t lizards eaten in some places?”
“Not…” Amara opened her mouth to speak but……WHAM! Another lizard had gotten squashed – a large male this time, and a shocked Amara wondered why the rest of these dumb things patiently waited to die. She watched again in disbelief as this woman raised the barely living reptile and bit its large reddish-orange head off to her horror.
“Hmm!” Mama Ebike moaned out while Amara quickly looked away in utter repugnance. “Their heads are the juiciest,” she mumbled, gnashing its skull with her molars; and then she began gobbled up the rest of the body within seconds. Amara was petrified now as she looked up and witnessed the Mama Ebike swallow it all down her throat. And then came the sigh of satisfaction. Amara’s stomach was starting to grumble now. She desperately looked around wishing for the presence of a third party to witness this…this madness, because no amount of her ramblings would convince anyone, not especially when Amara was known to add some exaggeration to the simplest tale. Who on earth would believe her this time?

Sports / Mikel,moses,ighalo Risks World Cup Ban by Sportskube(m): Last month on Sat 02 at 11:16am
The trio of John Obi Mikel, Odion Ighalo and Victor Moses all run the risk of being banned from Nigeria's World Cup qualifier against Zambia next month.
The trio of Odion Ighalo, Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel risk being banned for next month’s World Cup qualifier against the Chipolopolo of Zambia, if they go into the referee’s book when they face Cameroon on Monday.
All three players were on target as Nigeria smashed Cameroon 4-0 in the first of two legs of games, and while Ighalo was the only one of the three who got into the referee’s book on Friday, the duo of Mikel and Moses are also one booking away from being suspended.

Victor Moses was cautioned in the 3-1 win over Algeria in November, while Mikel’s name got into the referee’s bad books two minutes to the end of the 2-1 win against Zambia in Ndola, also last year.
Ighalo was booked after he showed the contents of his inner wear after putting Nigeria in the lead in the win over Cameroon.

Business / Ethiopian Airline Bids To Take Over Arik Air by johneewalker: 03:09pm On 8 Aug

Africa’s leading airline, Ethiopian Airlines has submitted a formal offer to take charge of troubled carrier Arik Air, which accounts for more than half of Nigerian air passenger traffic, the CNN has reported.

“We have outlined our terms and conditions to the Nigerian government and we are waiting to see if they agree,” Esayas WoldeMariam, Ethiopian’s managing director of international services, told CNN.

“We are capable and desirous of handling the airline.”

WoldeMariam did not specify details of the offer, but added that he expects to face competition for Arik from international airlines.

There are no indications yet that foreign airlines have submitted bids to take over the airline which is now under the management of AMCON following the debt of over N400billion, owed local and foreign creditors.

Arik’s Managing Director Captain Roy Ilegbodu reported in August that the company had stabilised under AMCON’s leadership, with services running smoothly and salaries paid. It now carries an average of 4,000 passengers daily. It has the largest fleet of 14 aircraft, although according to Ilegbodu 10 of them are operational at any time.

The Arik boss also disclosed a forensic audit of the airliner carried out by the KPMG.

“They have come up with a draft report and within the next few weeks, the final report will be out and will be available to the public.”

Arik Air suitor, Ethiopian Airlines is Africa’s fastest-growing and most profitable carrier.

The airline reported a 10 percent increase in revenue to $2.4 billion for 2015/16, with a 70 percent rise in profits, and passenger numbers climbed 18 percent to 7.6 million.

Ethiopian is pursuing ambitious development at home, with the $345 million expansion of Addis Ababa’s Bole International Airport, and abroad, having acquired a 49 percent stake in Malawian Airlines and 40 percent of ASKY Airlines in Togo.

Politics / Efcc Recovers N409b, $69m In 8 Months by johneewalker: 09:15am On 8 Aug

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, between January and August 2017 recovered about N409 billion and secured 137 convictions nationwide, the acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu said today.

He spoke at an interactive meeting with media executives that held in Abuja.

“Between January and August 30, 2017, the EFCC recovered N409,270,706,686.75; $69,501,156.67; 231,118.69 Pounds; 610,816.20 Euros; Dirham 443,400.00 and 70,500.00 Saudi Riyal,” he said.

“Over a month ago, the Commission recovered over N329billion from a group of oil marketers for the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.”

The session, which provided media editors from the print, online and broadcast media platforms, an avenue to engage with the EFCC boss, was also utilized by Magu, to intimate them of the resolve to remain unrelenting in the fight against corruption.

“In the area of prosecution of cases in court, we are also making progress despite the antics of some persons accused of grand corruption to delay trial,” Magu said.

He urged media men to see themselves as partners in progress, noting that the EFCC could not alone win the war against corruption.

“From what we read in the papers these days, it is either somebody is fighting Magu or Magu is fighting other people,” he said, adding that it was obvious journalists want to sell their newspapers.

“But seriously speaking, instead of fighting ourselves, we should be united in fighting the common enemy, which is corruption,” he stressed.

Magu used the opportunity to stress that he had no personal grouse with anyone, explaining that “I am not after anybody and have no issues with anybody. Those who think they have issues with me will soon discover that I mean no harm”.

“What drives me is the passion to do what is right by ensuring that we fight corruption to a standstill in this country.”

He further gave assurance that the EFCC will not rest on its oars, noting that, “We believe there is still a lot to be done which is the reason why we are actively seeking the support of all stakeholders, including the media.”


Business / Power Failure At Int’l Airport Grounds Activities by johneewalker: 08:49am On 8 Aug

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has formally apologised to Nigerians over the power failure that interrupted business at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, (MMIA), Lagos.

The power failure at the airport grounded activities for more than one hour before the battle to restore light in the ever busy airport was successful.

Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, the General Manager (Corporate Communications) of FAAN, apologised on Thursday in Lagos with an explanation that the outage happened on Wednesday night.

Engineers from FAAN restored electricity to the terminal as passengers conducted their activities in the dark with some clutching to flash lights.

She explained that “a minor power interruption at the airport caused the disruption, but engineers swung into action’’ and that normalcy had returned.

“FAAN wishes to apologise to passengers, airlines and the general public for the inconvenience caused by this interruption.

“The authority is assuring airport users of safety and security at airports at all times,” she said.

She said that power problem at the Lagos Airport was caused by the construction work going on there.

The Nigerian Police, Zone 8 Command, Abuja has assured residents of the zone of adequate security during and after the forthcoming Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.

Mr Salisu Fagge, Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) in charge of the zone, gave the assurance in a telephone interview with our correspondent.

He said the three commissioners of police in FCT, Niger and Kaduna states had been issued with operational order to provide effective security during and after the period.

He explained that the zone would also increase its patrol teams on Abuja-Kaduna federal highway to ensure the safety of road users.

He assured motorists that security measures put in place would deal with any form of threats.

He called on residents to volunteer information about bad elements in their midst.

He added that adequate security personnel would be stationed at strategic locations such as prayer grounds, children parks, recreational centres and other suspected crime spots.

Fagge urged members of the public, especially those traveling, to be vigilant and report any suspicious movement to the nearest security formation within their localities.


Politics / Fg Owes Nddc N1.8 Trillion – Official by johneewalker: 08:57am On 8 Aug
The Federal Government is said to be owing the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) the sum of N1.8 trillion since its inception 17 years ago.

Mr Ibitoye Abosede, Head, Media and Public Affairs, NDDC disclosed this in Uyo at a one-day Media Capacity Building Workshop for members of the Correspondents’ Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Akwa Ibom Council.

He lamented that non-remittance of the backlog of statutory allocations had hampered accelerated development in the region.

He said the federal government had mandated the Ministries of Niger Delta Affairs, Budget and National Planning to sit with the Board of NDDC with a view to ascertaining exactly how much was owed the commission.

“The federal government has set up a committee to ascertain the exact money owed the commission,” he said.

According to him, this is the first time that a sitting President will demonstrate this kind of political will towards ensuring sustainable development of the region.

Abosede, represented by Mr Chijoke Amu-Nnadi of the department, explained that aside the arrears from the commission’s statutory allocations, other associated funds for ecology, oil and gas, among others, had not been remitted.

“These problems of funding and the challenges of the terrain in Niger Delta, which prides itself as the third largest wetland in the world, have hindered development in the region,” he said.

He said that several projects worth N200 billion were cancelled across all the nine states of the region due to the challenge.

He noted that the present federal government under President Muhammadu Buhari is committed to addressing the challenges of funding in the commission.

Abosede said the current NDDC Board led by Mr Nsima Ekere had been doing its best to sustain the tempo of development in the region.

He recalled that due to discontents that translated to arm struggle in the region, the setting up of the NDDC became necessary for sustainable development, economic and socio-political stability of the region.

Abosede said that the NDDC had intervened in no fewer than 64 roads projects, with about 50 per cent already completed in Akwa Ibom.

“Because of funding challenge, it is difficult for the commission to complete some major projects in the region,” he said.

He enjoined other development partners to work in tandem with the agency for sustainable development to thrive in the region.

He explained that the commission was heavily complementing the state government administration’s development plans for the people.

Also speaking, Mr Samuel Frank, NDDC Commissioner, Akwa Ibom, said that the commission was not at war with the Akwa Ibom Government.

He said that the commission was focusing on providing infrastructure to alleviate the suffering of the people.

Frank said that NDDC had done well in the state by rehabilitating roads in rural and urban centres of the state.

He solicited more cooperation with the media to foster development in the region.

Events / News3 Boys Allegedly Had Sex With A Goat And 6 Friends After Watching Porn by johneewalker: 01:19pm On 8 Aug

Sex education is truly important because it helps create awareness on safety and precautions. Without proper sex education, there’s bound to be countless unnatural incidences. Three boys from Kerawang, Indonesia were recently accused of performing indecent acts on six children and an animal!

Two of the boys were 12 years old while one was 13 years old. According to Coconuts Jakarta, the incident took place on July 20, 2017. The sexual abuse was only unravelled after parents of the victims made reports recently. As the police investigated the case, they found that the sexual harassment all stemmed from pornography. The village leader, Endang Tarmidzi, of where those boys are from told the media that they have confessed their sins and blamed it on watching ‘adult scenes on YouTube’.

Besides that, the unnamed victims also explained that they weren’t the only ones inappropriately touched. The village leader said, “The victims also confessed, and afterward the three perpetrators took turns doing immoral acts with a goat.”
It was later revealed that these victims were actually friends of the perverted boys. The authorities even brought in the Karawang Social Office to conduct a mental health examination on the three boys who committed the deed.
According to a local social worker, Dyah Palupi Ekayanti, the boys did not do this because they had serious mental health issues, but they did it out of curiosity.
