North Korea To Launch Missile Tomorrow

North Korea has completed preparations for a mid-range missile launch tomorrow from its east coast, officials in Seoul have revealed just hours after foreigners living in South Korea were warned to quit the country.


The worrying warning came as speculation heightened that North Korea is planning to pull its ambassador out of the UK after a shipping container was pictured outside the London embassy.
Boxes were seen being loaded onto a large lorry parked outside the pariah state’s embassy – an ordinary home in Ealing, west London.
Seoul revealed today that foreign nationals in South Korea were told by the North to evacuate in case of a “merciless” war.
“We do not wish harm on foreigners in South Korea should there be a war,” said the KCNA news agency, citing its Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee.
The remarks come as the communist country has repeatedly said it will turn Seoul and Washington into a “sea of fire” and launch pre-emptive nuclear attacks against its enemies.
South Korean forces have been on high alert for an imminent missile launch by the communist nation, which was seen moving two Musudan missiles to its east coast last week and mounting them on mobile launchers.
Speculation had been building that North Korea could carry out a missile test as early as this week after dictator Kim Jong-un warned he could not “guarantee the safety of foreigners” after April 10.

Japan today deployed missile-defense systems at three sites around Tokyo ahead of the possible missile launch, officials confirmed.
Japan’s defense minister has also reportedly put destroyers with missile interception systems on alert in the Sea of Japan.
“As North Korea keeps making provocative comments, Japan, co-operating with relevant countries, will do what we have to do,” Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said today.
“The government is making utmost efforts to protect our people’s lives and ensure their safety,” he added.
Japan’s armed forces are authorised to shoot down any North Korean missile headed towards its territory, a defence ministry spokesman said.
“We are doing all we can to protect the safety of our nation,” chief Cabinet spokesman Yoshihide Suga said, though he and Ministry of Defense officials refused to confirm reports of a naval alert, saying they do not want to “show their cards” to North Korea.


Tensions have escalated further after North Korean authorities told embassies in Pyongyang they could not guarantee their safety from Wednesday – after saying conflict was inevitable amid joint U.S.-South Korean military exercises due to last until the end of the month.
However, no diplomats appear to have left the North Korean capital, despite a North Korean general reprotedly warning diplomats at the weekend that the situation remained “grave”.
Earlier today, North Korean labourers failed to turn up for work at a factory complex operated with South Korea, effectively shutting down the last major symbol of cooperation between the hostile neighbours.
Soaring tensions on the peninsula have been fuelled by North Korean anger over the imposition of U.N. sanctions after its last nuclear arms test in February, creating one of the worst crises since the end of the Korean War in 1953.


 Before hitting the big time, the Olofa of Offa Oba Mufutau Gbadamosi who will be 50 years old in August was so poor that he once admitted he used to live in a single room with 28 people in Lagos while he was working with the Federal Housing Authority until 1997 when he went into buying and selling.

However, everything changed for the monarch who became the traditional ruler of Offa in Kwara State about three years ago following the supports he got from the richest man in Africa, Aliko Dangote and Mrs. Cecilia Ibru, who was then the MD of Oceanic Bank (now Ecobank).

While Dangote made him one of his company’s commodities largest distributors and relaxed the rule of paying upfront for all the transactions he had with Dangote Group, Oceanic Bank, thanks to Mrs. Ibru gave him several facilities to the point that he owed the bank N3billion before he became traditional ruler.
And if everyone is giving Mrs. Ibru stick for misappropriating depositors’ fund while she was in Oceanic, Oba Muftau Gbadamosi would give the complete opposite.

Reason? Mrs. Ibru wrote off his N3bn debt. Now, Chairman, MB Integrated Electrical & Data Services Ltd, Zarm Poultry & Feed Mill Industry, Lagos among others, Oba Gbadamosi who at a time bought a house for N50m in Apapa is quite rich. He built himself a multi-million naira palace in Offa and December last year, Kwara United Football Club signed MoU with his company, Yammfy Farm worth N60m whereby the premier league side would advertise the farm on its jerseys.

Egypt Tightens Security After Church Unrest

Egypt unrest

The Egyptian government has ensured security remained tight around the main Coptic cathedral in Egypt’s capital Cairo on Monday, days after sectarian violence left several people dead.
Two more deaths were however reported on Monday as clashes between Coptic Christians and Muslims continued.
A 21-year-old Muslim man, identified as Mohamed, died of a fractured skull in hospital, a security source said.
His death followed fighting between local Muslims and Copts who had been attending a funeral for four Christians shot dead in a town near Cairo.
The health ministry said at least 90 people, including 11 policemen, were wounded around St Mark’s Cathedral, seat of the Coptic pope.
The violence is the worst sectarian unrest since the fall of President Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
One person was killed and 14 wounded in fresh clashes on Sunday night in the town of El Khusus, north of Cairo, where the latest wave of sectarian strife began on Friday, according to state news agency MENA.
Egypt’s prime minister, Hisham Kandil said the government was taking all measures to ensure the safety of Egyptians of all faiths.
Kandil promised to bring to justice the perpetrators of sectarian attacks and to crack down on unlicenced weapons.
He also spoke to the heads of the Coptic church and of the Islamic al-Azhar institution to discuss ways to resolve the crisis, a cabinet statement said.
The violence erupted as Egypt is negotiating with a visiting International Monetary Fund delegation for a loan of at least $4.8bn to ease a deepening economic crisis aggravated by political and sectarian turmoil.
The crisis has hit investment and tourism in the Middle East’s most populous nation.
Muslim and Christian religious leaders appeared together on late-night television to call for calm and national unity.
Witnesses accused the police of standing by as the Copts were attacked and of firing teargas at mourners in the compound as they emerged from the cathedral under a hail of rocks.
A statement posted on the interior ministry’s website blamed Christians for starting the trouble by vandalising several cars.
President Mohamed Morsi telephoned Coptic Orthodox Pope Tawadros II on Sunday evening to condemn the violence, telling him that “any attack on the cathedral is like an attack on me personally”.
In a condolence message to the families of the victims, Tawadros said on Monday: “Heavenly justice will be spoken at the appropriate time.” [AlJazeera]

INEC reorganises, retires, transfers directors

 INEC reorganises, retires, transfers directors

Abuja – The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abuja on Tuesday announced a massive reorganisation involving redeployment, transfer and retirement of some of its 67 directors.
The reorganisation also involved the reduction of the departments from 26 to nine while the directorates were reduced to 10, reports the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
The Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Mr Kayode Idowu, who confirmed the reorganisation said that INEC had over 20 departments which had been reduced to nine.
“There are now fewer departments in the commission being headed by people who are considered best suited to make the departments functional.
Idowu explained that some departments were merged, adding the civil society, gender, voter education and public affairs, becomes the department of voter education, public relations and civil society.
He said under the exercise the leadership would be reconfigured because the commission had a number of directors in the system and a lot of options had been put on the table.
Idowu said that the new departments would be headed by directors and there would also be directorates, adding that all the directors could not be accommodated with what was on ground.
According to him, there has been a lot of mind robbing and nobody will be shortchanged.
He said part of the options that was put on the table was that those who had a short time left in the service were giving an option of taking their pay upfront or stay and to be reassigned.
The press secretary said the reorganisation was as a result of INEC consultant (Price Water) observation that there were over bloated staff in the commission.
However, Idowu said the commission required a large number of staff due to its large volume of work across the country.
According to him, the commission will soon commence continuous voter’s registration in 8,809 wards in the country.
He said when the commission did the recruitment exercise in 2012, only 1,500 people were recruited and to do the exercise there was need to deploy more workforces across the country.
Idowu said that many people would be required to work for INEC, adding that there was no excess staff in INEC.
“The number of staff we have is not sufficient, because if you are looking at the number of wards, everybody at INEC will be fully utilised. (NAN)

Over 150 Skulls, Bones Found In Mass Grave; Sri Lanka To Set Up Inquiry

mass grave

Sri Lankan authorities will appoint a commission to investigate a mass grave where more than 150 skulls and bones were found last year, a government spokesman says.
Head of the government’s Media Centre for National Security, Lakshman Hulugalle said on Monday, President Mahinda Rajapaksa had taken the decision.
The grave, with skulls and bones of people thought to be Marxist rebels killed decades ago, is located at a state-run hospital in the central region of the country, said Hulugalle.
He told reporters the commission’s probe would be carried out alongside an ongoing police investigation.
Names of the members of the commission will be announced soon, he added.
Workers found the remains while doing construction last December at the hospital in Matale, about 105km, northeast of the capital, Colombo.
The skeletons were found buried in neat rows, five or six stacked on top of one another, totalling 154 bodies.
Last month, a judge declared the mass grave a crime scene, saying the skulls and bones recovered dated back 25 years and strengthened suspicions that they belonged to suspected Marxist rebels killed at the time.
Magistrate Chathurika de Silva told a court in Matale that tests carried out by archeological and judicial medical officials showed the remains dated to between 1987 and 1990.
During that period, thousands of men and women suspected of having ties to the rebels disappeared after being arrested by security forces.
When the bodies were found, there were initial claims that they belonged to those killed in an epidemic in the 1940s or in a mudslide.
But hospital authorities did not have any records of bodies buried on the premises.
A Marxist group, the People’s Liberation Front, which led two uprisings first in 1971 and again in 1987 to 1989 against the government, said the bodies may belong to its members killed by security forces and demanded that the government conduct a full investigation.

Jay-Z and Beyonce Cuba Trip Criticised

Jay-Z and Beyonce recently celebrated their five year wedding anniversary in Cuba, but for very awkward reasons the power-couple’s romantic getaway has come under
intense scrutiny.
The couple, who were given personal bodyguards amongst other special
treatment by the Cuban government, has been under fire from an anti-Castro group of individuals who feel their preferential treatment was unfair considering how normal Cuban residents tend to live in squalor and
were highly unlikely to ever receive such benefits.
I honestly don’t see anything wrong there, do you think it was Bey and Jay’s fault that they got special treatment?

former Super Eagles GK, Peter Rufai Diverts 200K Euro In Belgium, May Go To Jail

Former Super Eagles goalkeeper and 1994 African Nations Cup gold medalist, Peter Rufai worked very hard to be in form and maintained good name. He was in goal for Nigeria’s senior national team for over a decade, and kept goal for European clubs such as  K.S.C Lokeren, K.S.K Beveren (both of Belgium) and Deportivo de La Coruna of Spain.

However, one error of judgment on his part has caused the reputation he built over the years to stain, particularly in Belgium where he allegedly diverted the sum of 200,000 euro that was put in his hand by the Nigerian Community and ran to Nigeria last year.

Sources claim that the Belgian government has an arrangement in place for ethnic groups and that of nationals of other countries in Belgium whereby financial supports are given to them every quarter. A subvention, it takes several different forms. At times, it is 5000 euro in a quarter, and at other times it is well above it.

Organizations like the Egbe Omo Odua, Igbo Group, Nigerian Community, Sierra Leon Community, and Ghanaian Community among others get theirs and spend it with shrieks of delight. Most of the African communities also have football clubs that also benefit from the largess.

Impeccable sources told orijoreporter that last year the Nigerian Community Football Club,  an outfit managed by the ex-international and in division four of the Belgian League, received 200,000 euro (about N44 million) from the Belgian authority to prosecute the club’s programmes. Others like Ghana, Sierra Leon were also beneficiaries.

But while others used the money as specified that of Nigeria was diverted by the manager, Rufai who left with it to Nigeria since last year and has not returned.

It was said that before the incident Egbon as Rufai is called in Belgium by the Nigerian Community was living in Antwerp having been brought from Spain where he had a small school where goalkeepers were trained by a lady.

Things were so difficult for him following his failure to make the right investments during his impressive career as a footballer. And under the condition he was in, any straw was worth holding on to.

Orijoreporter gathered that Dodo Mayana as he is fondly called in Nigeria risked being jailed for three or six months if he returned to Belgium. It was also said that Rufai’s reported illness last year in Nigeria when he was admitted to Toki Hospital at Surulere for slumping in his office, after his 78 years old mother’s death was feigned so as to distract attention from his wrongdoing.

Face Eating(NOMA) Disease Spreads In Nigeria

 NOMA, a severe disease that affects the face is silently spreading in Nigeria. Studies carried out in the last two years have revealed that about 126,000 Nigerians die from NOMA disease every year.
Although it is relatively unknown, the disease has been plaguing lives especially of people in the North. Victoria Nkong, the coordinator of the campaign against NOMA disease, explains the symptoms as initial sore or rash inside the mouth of a victim, which if left untreated gradually grows and in the process, part of the face is eaten up with gangrene. She says that in extreme cases, the disease eats its way into the heart and vital organs of the victim’s body leading to death.”Although most of the cases of NOMA disease can be found in the Northern part of the country, we have recorded a few cases in Lagos and in most of those cases, due to ignorance about the disease, people brand the victims as accursed people or demons. NOMA disease is prevalent among the poor and it is caused by acute malnutrition. Children and young people from the ages of two to seven years are mostly affected but in rare cases, adults can fall victims. If detected early, it can be treated with common antibiotics but when it is left untreated, the disease eats out the whole face, at which point the victim will have to undergo a very expensive corrective surgery,” says Nkong.
Nkong emphasises the existence and spread of the disease in the country, urging sufferers to get treatment and possibly surgery.
“Most medical practitioners in Nigeria do not know about NOMA but this is a disease that kills faster than AIDS and the level of ignorance about it in Nigeria is alarming. Since it mostly affects the poor people, it is cheaper to treat at the early stages. A poor man living below N100 a day cannot be expected to raise £40,000 needed for corrective surgery and the medical budget from the Federal Government cannot adequately take care of such expenses. So it is very important for people to undergo proper screening and tests to tackle the disease before it gets to the maturity stage."

Death of a Runner Headlines Berlin Half Marathon as Two were Stabbed Ahead of Rome Derby.

Athletes at Berlin Half Marathon.

Making headlines at the 33rd edition of Berlin half marathon on Sunday is the death of a 24- year- old amateur runner. Police said the man who was not publicly identified, collapsed shortly before the finish line. Efforts were made to resuscitate him to no avail; he later died in the hospital. Another 43- year- old man died in similar circumstance in 2010.
In another development, two people were stabbed after rival groups of fans clashed in Rome ahead of the Serie A derby between AS Roma and SC Lazio.

 The Late Okey Isima

The burial of Okey Isima, member of the 1980 squad that won the first ever Africa Cup of Nations trophy for Nigeria has been scheduled to hold in April. Okey Isima died early last month after a brief illness. The late Green eagle star left United States for his mother land before passing on to the World beyond.
Former Super Eagles midfielder, now special adviser on sports to Governor Peter Obi of Anambra state, Arthur Ebunam, disclosed that plans are on by ex- Eagles players in the US to organise a befitting burial for their team mate, friend, and colleague. He also disclosed that some of them will be back home for the burial.
Arthur Ebunam, while expressing his condolence, said “It is very painful that Nigeria is losing yet another ex- footballer, Okey Isima, a man that has done this country proud on both local and international scene. Okey is somebody I know very well, we started life together as players, played for different clubs in Nigeria including the senior national team the Green Eagles ever before travelling to the States.
Right there in the US, we never left each other, until he decided to return home. So when the news of his death came to me, I could not believe my ears. I was in shock for days. He is somebody that cannot be forgotten so soon by friends, brothers and colleagues. But people would say life goes on brother,” he added.
Okey will be buried on April 27, 2013 in his home town of Nsugbe, Anambra state. The date is so chosen to make room for every necessary arrangement to be put in place.
“As a friend, I can reliably tell you that the family of Isima has decided on April 27 as the date for the burial. His younger brother told me this in confidence before he left for his base in South Africa. He said they decided to pick April 27 so that they can have enough time to prepare for it, adding that the family, friends and well wishers, made up their mind to give the former footballer star a good burial as the last respect they can give to their friend and colleague.” He said that they have also written the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) notifying them of the burial date and plan.
