French Police Question 8-Year-Old Boy For Praising Charlie Hebdo Attackers

An eight-year-old boy from the southern French city of Nice was questioned by police on Wednesday after he allegedly made comments expressing “solidarity” with the gunmen who had attacked the offices of Charlie Hebdo magazine, according to media reports. The attack on the French satirical publication by militants, allegedly affiliated to al Qaeda, on Jan. 7, had led to the deaths of 12 people and triggered a state of high alert in countries across Europe.

Authorities at the boy’s school notified the police on Jan. 8 after he refused to participate in a minute’s silence to honor those killed in the attack. The boy, whose name has not been disclosed, also reportedly said he supported the terrorists who attacked Charlie Hebdo as he opposed the caricatures of Prophet Muhammad that were printed by the magazine. "I am on the side of the terrorists, because I am against the caricatures of the prophet," he reportedly said.

The boy and his father are now being questioned by the police.

Tax Evasion: Jimi Agbaje Replies Fashola

PDP Governorship aspirant, Jimi Agbaje has reacted to Governor Fashola’s statement that accused him of not paying his company's tax for four years in Lagos. Jimi reacted in a press statement released this morning through his media aide. Find it below.

Mr. Jimi Agbaje expresses surprise at this rather personal and unprovoked attack against his person by Governor Raji Fashola. Just in January, the Commissioner for Finance sent a personal letter to Mr. Agbaje, commending him for his faithfulness in payment of taxes relating to his residence.

It is a curious contradiction that several days later, the Governor himself would express sentiments clearly in contradiction to the spirit and letter of that voluntary and unsolicited commendation from the state.

Oh dear! Whoever is still not following political news especially now in Nigeria has no idea of what he or she is missing. Remember Gen.

We thought we had gotten over that and had moved on as a country, but no we were wrong. Gov. Fayose is now appealing to APC to please let their presidential candidate leave for US so he could get the medical attention he needs and not break down before time. Please continue…

Medical Student Needs Your Help On His Relationship

I have been dating this girl since secondary school days. We have always shared plans and we both decided to study Medicine at the University of Lagos. As faith would have it, we got admissions into Unilag but I got admission into medicine while she was offered zoology because of her performance in the Post JAMB exams. The whole of year 1 was fantastic as we were on the same campus. I can never forget the kind of intimacy we enjoyed. Little did I know that the following year, there would be a separation as I had to move on to Idi-Araba while she remained at the Akoka campus.

A lot happened in between as much as the distance between both campuses. One way or the other, I began to notice irregular behavioural attitudes from her. I planted a mole on her and found out that she’s having an affair with a course mate of hers an Efiko in the class. It seems their relationship grows by the day while that of mine with hers suffers setbacks. I really love her with all of my heart. There’s also this girl who has been on my neck at the Idi-Araba campus. Honestly, I don’t need a prophet to tell me she would be a good partner/lover. I really am confused now. Should I let go or stick to my secondary school love? Its hard controlling things as the distance between us as become my greatest shortfall.

Jimi Agbaje Is Owing Lagos Over 4 Years Land Use Charge, Yet He Wants To Be Lagos Governor- Fashola

Lagos State Governor, Babtunde Raji fashola has said the PDP’s Governorship candidate in the state, Jimi Agbaje is a tax evader. Fashola disclosed this while speaking at the 8th Annual Stakeholder Taxation Conference in Ikeja on Wednesday.

Fashola said Agbaje’s pharmaceutical company has not paid the state government four years Land Use Charge, LUC, tax and that such a person is not credible to govern Lagos.

According to him, “LUC is ground rent and tenement rate as they were consolidated. I know that you have to vote next month but look at that candidate that would need to take over from me and be careful of who to vote for. You will remember that in 2007, he (Agbaje) claimed that he was in DPA and later crossed to PDP.

Women Should Not Be Allowed In Politics- Satguru Maharaj Ji

One Love Family has declared that it is a taboo for women to occupy leadership roles and should only play secondary roles in the society. According to him there are bound to be confusion and ineffective policy.

“Women must not lead. If a woman is a governor, what do you address her, ‘first man’, or ‘first lady man’. It is there in the Bible and Qu’ran. Even the Bible said, women must not lead in the church. They are to play secondary roles. Look at Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Coordinating Minister of the Economy, look at the policies being made.”

“In Liberia, there is confusion because a woman is the president. What do you expect? They may vie for other positions but governorship and presidency is a no-go area for women,” he told Tribune Newspaper.

Buhari Asks’ PDP Money Questions!

What have you done with oil money? Those are part of the questions the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari asked PDP yesterday while receiving a delegation of members of the Peoples Democratic Movement at his office in Abuja. Hear him;

“What you have said summarises the problems of this country. You have looked carefully and found out that this year, 2015, whichever way politicians and the elite look at it, is another time or watershed in our political system.

“If we get it wrong this time, and allow the PDP to go again for the next four years, this country is going to be in trouble. Right now, with the unfortunate event of crumbling oil price, the economy is really in a mess. Coupled with insecurity, it is only a country like Nigeria that can survive and get out of this situation we are in. A lot of countries will just disappear either from the map or from the political equation of nation states. But Nigerians are so resilient to the extent that there are international personalities who could not understand why Nigeria still exists.
