Jose Mourinho To Replace Louis Van Gaal As Manchester United Manager

Louis van Gaal lifted the FA Cup at Wembley, but it will not stop Manchester United appointing Jose Mourinho as their new manager.

The Dutchman is set to meet Old Trafford ­executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and a number of Glazer family members on Sunday for talks to confirm that he is being replaced this summer by the former Chelsea boss.

Van Gaal had hoped that he would have been given the opportunity to work the final season of his three-year contract if he lifted the FA Cup.

But that summit will confirm his departure a year early from Old Trafford. Woodward's determination not to sack his second manager in three seasons has been undone by United's failure to qualify for the Champions League.

                                                          One of the injured victims

Oke Ako community in Ikole Local Government area of Ekiti State, was last night thrown into mourning, wailing and gnashing of teeth, as suspected killer herdsmen invaded the town, leaving in its wake, two dead men and several others wounded.

Eyewitnesses told journalists that the incident in which the entire village was sacked occurred at about 8:00 pm on Friday.

Olofin further alleged majority of the villagers had to scamper for safety in the bushes to escape the onslaught of the killer herdsmen, who according to her were hacking the hapless villagers with their deadly weapons. She said the invaders had shot sporadically into the air and killed one Lekan Arosanyin and a yet to be identified person, while four others sustained various degrees of injuries and were said to be receiving treatment at a private hospital in Ado Ekiti, the state capital.

I Will Be Celebrated Every Year In America Just Like Martin Luther King- Praiz

R&B singer, Praiz has emphasized more on his ‘own day’ awarded to him in Minnesota, United States, by the Governor of the State. Praiz says he will be the first African to be rewared that way and says it’s just the way we have Martin Luther King Day. When pressed further on why Nigerians didn’t celebrate this, he said It was more than what many could understand. Praiz disclosed this in an interview with Vanguard. Enjoy…

So Far, How Has The Year Been For You? 

It has been a great year for me and I’m grateful to God. My year started on a good note and by God’s grace, I believe it will get even better. It started with a major achievement – I was honoured by the Governor of Minnesota, United States with my own day.

Usually When People Are Honoured With Their Own Day, It’s A Big Deal. But You Were Given That Honour And Most People Didn’t Notice Or Appreciate It…. 

I think it’s just too big for them to comprehend. Honestly, I didn’t see it coming. Everyday I wake up and stare at the plaque, wondering if it’s real. When I started, I never knew I would achieve this. I just wanted to win awards, make money and be comfortable. I didn’t think I would be honoured in a different way in a different continent altogether. I think it’s a lesson for Nigerians to learn to appreciate their own, we celebrate foreigners we don’t know in our own country and look down on our own. Continue...

Athletes At Rio 2016 Olympics To Get 450, 000 Condoms

About 450,000 condoms will be distributed during the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, three times more than for the London Games four years ago, the International Olympic Committee says.

Part of the reason was because 100,000 female condoms will be available for the first time, along with 350,000 condoms for men. About 175,000 packets of lubricant are also being supplied.

The IOC says the condoms would encourage 10,500 athletes and staff to practice safe sex.

It's not clear if the increase is related to Brazil's outbreak of the Zika virus.

Flight MS804 'Was On Fire Before It Crashed': Leaked Data Shows

Leaked data has reportedly emerged indicating that Flight MS804 was on fire before it crashed, as smoke alarms were sounding for almost three minutes before it began its rapid descent.

The new information suggests that a fire on board the EgyptAir plane is a more likely reason for the crash than a bomb, although experts have not ruled out the use of an 'incendiary device'.

While Egyptian officials continue saying that they suspect terrorism, no group has yet come forward to claim credit as theories as to the cause of the crash continue to circulate.

It comes as hundreds of mourners gathered to offer prayers for the 66 passengers and crew killed in the EgyptAir disaster.

Ibinabo’s Jail Term: Actress Says God Is Punishing Her Because Of Me

The actress, with her victim (left)

There is nothing these actresses won’t say o, especially the upcoming ones. So the actress who bit off the skin of her colleague, Christabel Goddy and was banned by the then AGN president, Ibinabo Fiberesima has said her latest crisis where a judge sent her to jail was because she maltreated her and God has decided to fight for her. According to her, Ibinabo banned her from acting for a while, and even though the new AGN president, Emeka Ike has lifted the ban, Ibinabo deserves every punishment she is getting from the law court she said. Here’s what she told Saturday Beats;

“My only regret is that I indulged her (the actress she fought with) and I am not proud of it. But then with my age and the little number of years I have spent in the industry, I should be excused. Politicians fight every day, so I don’t see why I should be buried. I did not kill anybody. Ibinabo was accused of killing somebody and she was walking on the street, bragging before the law caught up with her. I believe that it is because she passed a wrong judgement against me that God is punishing her. Her ban against me was flimsy and uncalled for even though it has been lifted by Emeka Ike.
