Must Read! Chilling Confessions Of High -Profile Edo Kidnap Suspects

The unprecedented visit of strange-looking men to the home of Dr. Paul Erie, an associate professor of agricultural economics at the Department of Agricultural Economics and Extension, Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma, on June 16, 2015 signalled an omninous outcome. His house is located at Igbanke, Orhionmwon Local Government  Area of Edo State. Time was 8pm.

The armed invaders numbering eight, reportedly positioned themselves strategically within the premises. While some of them barged into the sitting room without knocking, others stayed outside to ward off intruders.

They reportedly made straight for where Dr Erie was, with a stern warning to him to cooperate or have his life wasted by a bullet from their lethal weapon.

Like a sheep being led to the slaughter, Dr Erie reportedly obeyed and was subsequently whisked away in their operational vehicle which left a haze of dust from its screeching tyres.

Truth Be Told, Buhari Has Done Nothing Since He Got Into Office- Etcetera

Can someone please tell me what exactly is happening in Nigeria? Sincerely, what is really happening? Sentiments aside, what has Buhari done since taking over Aso Rock? The Boko Haram sect is still bombing, fuel scarcity is still on, the dollar is still over N200, fuel subsidy is still draining the treasury, insecurity has got to a new level, the roads are at a deplorable state nationwide, and some people are suggesting we should still give the president more time, that he will deliver soon. How long will this delivery take? Because it is already looking like the president might need a C-section to deliver. The signs are clear for all to see that Buhari has started feeling the pangs of labour. Nobody should ask us to give Buhari time to settle down to work. Buhari is an employee and he has to do the job he’s getting paid for. No firm accords its employees the luxury of settling down to the job. Why must it be a different case with Nigeria? Is President Buhari not getting paid already? So why does he need time to do a job he’s already getting paid for?

9-Year Old Boy Fatally Shot In Gangland Feud

A boy, just 9, has been fatally shot by a Chicago gang in a feud that has seen at least two others killed. Tyshawn Lee was walking from school to his grandmother's house at around 4.15pm on Monday when somebody opened fire, fatally hitting him in the head and back.
