Taiwan’s electorate took to polling stations across the country to cast their votes in a presidential election that could see the island state appoint its first female leader. Tsai Ing-wen, leader of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), is looking to oust the ruling Kuomintang (KMT) party, who is faced by Eric Chu.

Tsai, who is running for a second time after being defeated in 2012 by the incumbent, Ma Ying-jeou, is leading the race by a large majority, according to most polls.

Rivers State Givernor, Wike Nyesom has directed security agencies in the State to arrest Biafra protesters who had threatened to resume protest by Monday, January 18th, 2016 if their leader, Nnamdi Kanu was not released.

Missing Budget, Etcetera Wades In…

It is very hard to explain to a non-Nigerian abroad that Nigeria is a country of over 200 million people. He/she would wonder how a country of over 200 million citizens became so tamed to the point of stupidity — that a few individuals could keep millions of people locked in hell for over 20 years would have been termed impossible, but as the world has come to know, there’s nothing impossible in Nigeria. We hold the record of the most persevering people on earth. We have an unbelievable threshold for endurance.

One of the reasons why I think Nigeria may never recover from her present predicament is because as a people, Nigerians love poverty. This is the only country in the world where a politician steals money and the people provide tangible reasons why the politician is actually supposed to steal.

Bullet Wounds: Nollywood Actor Recalls Terrible Encounter With Mobile Policeman

Nollywood actor, Charles Okocha who was hit by bullets from a mobile policeman’s gun at a wedding in Nnewi, Anambra State has explained his horrible experience and the grace God has had on him to keep him alive. It’s indeed a terrible experience no one will ever pray for. Here’s what he told Saturday Beats…

“I stepped out of the wedding venue to receive a call and then walked into a bunch of fans that made some complimentary remarks. As I moved closer to acknowledge their love for me, a policeman who was around also walked to where we were standing and said that my movies always made him happy. He said as a mark of appreciation of my works and the respect he had for me, he would shoot into the air as a form of salute, even though I didn’t fancy the idea.

“The guy was very drunk and so when he corked his gun to shoot, it fell from his hand. Unfortunately, the gun had been programmed to shoot rapidly and sporadically. I was very close to him and before the gun dropped some bullets had hit me. I had to hold my intestine which was already out with my hands. It was a very horrifying experience. I did not get to the hospital till after an hour even with the way I was bleeding profusely.

At Least 20 Dead In Siege By Suspected Islamists At Burkina Faso Hotel

At least 20 people have died and some taken hostage when Islamist gunmen stormed a hotel in the capital city of Burkina Faso on Friday, an attack al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) have claimed.

Security forces began an assault to reclaim the Splendid Hotel in the early hours of Saturday and entered its lobby, part of which was on fire, a Reuters witness said. The hotel is frequented by Westerners, which may have made it a target for the militants.

About 30 hostages including the labor minister were freed from the hotel, said Minister of Communications Remis Dandjinou. No one has said publicly how many hostages might be in the hotel.

It was the first time militants have carried out an assault in the capital of Burkina Faso and comes as a setback to efforts by African governments, France and the United States to prevent attacks that have destabilized the region.

Note: Passenger Wants Flight Attendant To Announce To The Person Farting On Flight To Stop

A note handed to a flight attendant by an unhappy passenger has divided opinion, with web users at odds over whether it's distasteful or hilarious. Scribbled on a napkin, the complaint makes reference to noxious smells, which the passenger suggests are coming from a flatulent flier.

The author asks the attendant to make an announcement requesting that whoever is responsible for the pong stops breaking wind. Presumably meant as a joke, the note also suggests that the guilty party seek medical attention because they "might have ass cancer ". And while some have seen the funny side, for others it's kicking up a stink.

The note reads: "I don't know if you can make an announcement, but if you can you should say that whoever is farting in the area of rows 10 to 12 should definitely see a doctor because they might have ass cancer."

He grabs the huge snake and wrestles with it, risking his life as he pushes and pulls the dangerous predator. Amazingly, the legs of one of them appears as he continues to push the rest of its body out.

Beatfm Oap, Osi Suave has shared a photo of how Dammy Krane’s white top to Quilox Club got soaked in blood after Wizkid attacked him at the club.

But then 3 men around had to quickly hold Dammy Krane back from retaliating. The question is why was he held back? What sort of cheating is that? To say Wizkid is an ambassador of many brands, good for them, Good for Pepsi, we see your ambassador. So annoying. And then, Dammy went home with no shirt and a new cut. Bravo!

Video Of T.B Joshua Meeting Face To Face With Lucifer Becomes The Talk Of The Internet

The video was recorded in December, but was brought to limelight after a article written by freelance Journalist, Ihechukwu Njoku. Read…

A YouTube clip showing controversial Nigerian Pastor T.B. Joshua’s dramatic encounter with ‘Lucifer’ has gone viral, amassing over 500,000 views in just one month since its release online. The video titled ‘Face To Face With Lucifer’ shows a peculiar scenario that unfolded in Joshua’s church when a self-professed ‘occult wizard’ came to seek prayers at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos, Nigeria.

In the clip, an eerily looking man with a menacing black beard introduces himself as Professor Chukwudi Okakpu, an alleged ‘Grand Llama of Science Beyond Material’. Amidst his extraordinary claims, the Satanist professed to have had face to face encounters with ‘Lucifer’ and to have endorsed ‘anti-Christs’ globally. “I can stay here and appear in any part of Europe,” Okakpu, dressed in a flowing white suit, calmly stated, adding that he ‘operates like a spirit’. “If you are such a person that patronises shrines or herbalists, I am the ultimate,” he sensationally claimed.

Talk about the streets. This street thing will get a lot of people into problems o, lol. Even the ‘butters’ too are claiming streets, it is well. So after Dammy Krane called Wizkid out on Twitter calling him a thief for stealing few of his songs, the duo met early hours of this morning at Club Quilox where football star Obafemi Martins was hosted to an All Black Party and they said a mini war started when the two saw eye to eye. According to TheNetng who broke the news, Wizkid came into the club house at around 4:00am but Dammy Krane and others had earlier been there. He didn’t say a word to Krane, but shortly after seeing him, sources claim Krane gave him an attitude and Wizkid walked up to his table and broke a bottle on his head. The two young acts where quickly separated by bouncers before the fight could escalate.

Shina Peller, the club owner later walked in, summoned the two parties to his office and settled the matter. Mschew, this settling of matters the same day is a bit annoying o, that’s how they won’t let us have diss tracks. Imagine a whole lot of people waiting to hear Olamide’s diss track against Mavin’s boss and how Mavin will respond? Shior. Their industry is too boring, they should stop forming baby gangsters…. Smh  Lool.
