I Regret Rushing Into Marriage – Actress, Iyabo Ojo
Why I love tattoos
I don’t really have as many tattoos as people think I do. I just have three on me and they all have their significance. The one on my hand is a rose and it signifies love. The one on my chest is a crown and it means that I am a queen in whatever I do – I call the shots.
FUNAAB lecturer crushes two students to death
An unidentified lecturer of the Federal University of Agriculture on Friday allegedly crushed two male students of the university with his car at Isolu, about two kilometers to the institution’s permanent site in Alabata, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika, has said that soldiers have killed three top commanders of the Boko Haram Islamic sect.
He gave the names of those killed as Asalafin, Danladi and a bomb manufacturing expert nicknamed ‘Doctor.’
Ihejirika said that Danladi is believed to be the vice-president of the sect while Asalafin is the minister of defence.
The Army chief stated this at the closing ceremony of a range classification exercise at the 177 Guards Battalion, Keffi, Nasarawa State, on Friday.
He said the three Boko Haram leaders were killed in a military operation at Wamakko Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
He explained that civilians were not killed in the operation as only the houses of the terror suspects were raided.
He added that the operations were planned and carried out to ensure that the casualty figure was reduced to the minimum.
According to him, the wives and children of the Boko Haram leaders were in custody of the military.
“The latest as at today is the one in Sokoto, where we were able to get several of the leaders of the Boko-Haram, one of them is called Asalafin.
“He was one of those we put a price tag on, he has been taken off, followed by another leader called Danladi and the bomb-making expert nick-named doctor,” he said.
He said the determination of the Army to bring the terror scourge to an end received a boost with the recoveries of assault weapons, rocket launchers, pistols and other bomb-making materials in Sokoto, Maiduguri and Kaduna.
