FIFA President Sepp Blatter Resigns Over Corruption Allegations

FIFA president Sepp Blatter is to quit amid a corruption scandal engulfing the footballing body.
The 79-year-old said an extraordinary congress is to be called to elect his successor as soon as possible.
He was only re-elected to a fifth term in office on Friday - two days after the crisis was triggered by the arrest of several FIFA officials in Zurich.
FIFA boss Sepp Blatter to quit
The Swiss authorities have said Blatter is not part of their inquiries, but ABC News reports he is being investigated by the FBI and US prosecutors.
Jordan's Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, who failed in his bid last week to oust Blatter, has announced he will stand in new elections for the presidency.
Blatter said: "I cherish FIFA more than anything and I want to do only what is best for FIFA and for football.
"I felt compelled to stand for re-election, as I believed that this was the best thing for the organisation.
"That election is over but FIFA's challenges are not. FIFA needs a profound overhaul.
"While I have a mandate from the membership of FIFA, I do not feel that I have a mandate from the entire world of football - the fans, the players, the clubs, the people who live, breathe and love football as much as we all do at FIFA.
"Therefore, I have decided to lay down my mandate at an extraordinary elective congress.
"I will continue to exercise my functions as FIFA President until that election."
During that period Blatter said he would "focus on driving far-reaching, fundamental reforms".
"I have fought for these changes before and, as everyone knows, my efforts have been blocked.
 "It is my deep care for FIFA and its interests, which I hold very dear, that has led me to take this decision.
"I would like to thank those who have always supported me in a constructive and loyal manner as President of FIFA and who have done so much for the game that we all love."

“Definitely Yes! I am nursing a political ambition. I am hereby using this medium to let my colleagues know that we are the voice of the masses. People believe in us and it is high time we joined politics and start contributing and making changes. We can no longer keep watching from the sidelines. We have to be involved in the politics of this nation so that we can better the lot of the populace. We need to prove that we can change things”
You cannot be a change agent if you are not involved in what is going on. So I support my colleagues; I support any entertainer who ventures into politics. I don’t think there is anything bad in it. It is a welcome development for us in the entertainment industry. I am also positive that my dream will come true someday,” he affirmed.

“No! No!! No!!! I have always seen myself as a leader especially when I am around my age mates. I have always put up a bold front because I am a bold person. I have been able to conquer and overcome the challenges that are around me irrespective of my nature and other things about my physical stature. I have been able to set aside anything that could bother me and moved on. I didn’t allow anything to really bother me while I was growing up.

Bride shocked guests as she turned up at her wedding in a coffin (PHOTOS)

A 58-year-old bride, Jenny Buckleff recently shocked guests when she turned up at her own wedding in a coffin – meant for dead people!
Guess why?

She did it because she wanted to be  different.
‘I just wanted to do something a little bit different! Instead of turning up in a horse-drawn cart, I thought I’m going to turn up in a coffin.”
Her groom wasn’t in support at first, but she was able to convince him to reason with her.
“I almost didn’t tell Chris but in the end I spilled the beans about three weeks before. He was a bit surprised but he said as long as I was happy he would go with the flow.What more could I ask for from a new husband?!’I don’t normally dress like this and I’m not a goth at all.”
Although the pair gave lots of wedding guests a shock, they said they were pleased to have had such a talking point at the nuptials.
The couple met just six months ago and Mr Lockett proposed one month later in their local pub, the Horn and Trumpet.
The lorry driver, 51, said:
‘She kept it from me for a bit, but then it slipped out. It was different, but if that’s what she wants to do then that’s fine.’When we first met in The Victoria on the Square in Hanley, I gave her my number. But I was so drunk, I gave her the wrong number and kept going back to the pub week after week, waiting for her to come back in.It was maybe four or five weeks until we met again and it went from there. It was love at first sight. I proposed around Christmas.
‘I was out shopping for presents when I saw a jewellers and I thought, “Why not?” It wasn’t planned.’
Mrs Buckleff’s daughter, Jade Meads, 27, said:
 ‘The coffin was a bit strange, but my mum is never normal. I thought she was joking at first.’
The couple have five children from previous marriages, who were all there, alongside Mr Lockett’s ex-wife, to watch them get married on Saturday.

Bomb Blast At Busy Maiduguri Market Kills As Many As 50

A bomb blast hit a busy meat market in Nigeria's northeastern city of Maiduguri on Tuesday, killing as many as 50 people, an eyewitness and a hospital source told Reuters.
The bomb which was concealed under a butcher's table in the market went off at around 1pm, killing shoppers and travelers, a military source said.
Nobody has claimed responsibility for the latest explosion, which follows two bomb attacks over the weekend that killed at least 30 people and bore the hallmarks of militant Islamist group Boko Haram.
The group, which new President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to crush, has killed thousands of people and displaced around 1.5 million in its bid to establish an Islamic caliphate in the northeast of Africa's biggest economy and top oil exporter.

58 year old India Bussiness Mogul Gave Up His $600m Fortune To Become A Monk

58-year-old Bhanwarlal Doshi, who was profiled by Forbes and said to be worth over $600m, runs a plastic company in Delhi, India. But Doshi would get converted into the famous Jain monk’s life, prompting him to give up his $600m empire. 

He got converted on Sunday and became one of the disciples of Jain Acharya, Shri Gunratna Surishwarji Maharaj.
To kick-off his monk life, a lavish three-day send-off party was thrown for him, where 1,500 people served food to guests. After the ceremony, he is expected to live in abject poverty with no maids or money or any physical possession.

Times of India reports that, “The venue [of the send-off] was built in the form of a ship. 500 hotel rooms were booked to accommodate guests. An estimated 150,000 people participated in the event.”

Reports said he had always wanted to become a monk after he listened to Jain’s lectures in 1981, but it took him time to convince his family.

How Our Father Slept With Us — Daughters & Nieces of Oyo Herbalist

Oyo State Police Command has arrested a man who allegedly defiled his two under-aged biological daughters and two of his nieces, all between 14 and 17 years.

The crime was allegedly committed at Moniya in Akinyele Local Government Area of the state.
Though the suspect, a herbalist, denied the incest allegation, saying he was being held for a crime he did not commit, the confessions of the four girls took many people at the state police headquarters, Eleyele, Ibadan by surprise as they narrated how the father had sex with them at different times.

While parading the suspect, identified as Tajudeen Awoniyi, Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Muhammed Katsina, said the accused person had carnal knowledge of his own daughters whenever he was drunk.

The commissioner alleged that the suspect would give black soap to the other two nieces before 
having sexual intercourse with them one after the other.

  • Nieces’ story

Vanguard reports that while speaking with newsmen yesterday, one of the victims (names withheld), said:
“My sister and I are the nieces to Tajudeen Awoniyi. His daughters came to our house and asked us to follow them to their place. On getting there, her father told us he would give us soap by midnight which we must use to bathe. 
Around 1a.m., he woke me up, gave me a black soap and asked me to go and take my bath. After taking my bath, I went to him and he placed something under his tongue and asked me to sleep on a bench. 
He had sex with me. Afterwards, I was bleeding and he asked me to go to bed. By morning, he sent my sister and me out of his house.”
The sister, who is about 16 years old, corroborated the story, saying:
 “after taking my bath at night, he tied my mouth with cloth so that people would not hear me when I cried. He had sex with me afterwards and by morning he sent me out of his house.”

  • He’s been sleeping with me since last year—Daughter

One of his daughters also said:
“My father has been sleeping with me since last year. Whenever he comes home drunk, he sleeps with me and my sister (names withheld). He had slept with me three times now since last year.”

  • He once threatened my mother with cutlass—Sister

The suspect’s sister said:
“When I came back from where I travelled to, I did not meet my daughters at home. So I asked the people around and I was told that my brother’s children came to my house and my daughters went out together with them. 
I said they could not have slept in my brother’s place because it has been a while I saw him. The next day as I was about to pray around 6:30a.m., my brother showed up. 
I was scared because I usually get scared when I see him since the day he threatened my mother with cutlass to release his children for him when they were still little. So he told me that my daughters slept in his place and he had asked them to go back the next day. It was not until the third day that I saw my daughters. Someone staying around brought them home. 
One of them was holding her tummy. I later took them to the hospital where we found out about the incident and I had to call the police.”
The victims, who dared their father and told the police the whole story, further explained that they kept sealed lips for fear of being beaten by the herbalist.

The names of my accomplices are Tajudeen Orji and Saheed.

“We have been in this business for four years. We have duped five people and we charge them between N150,000 to N300,000, depending on what they want us to do for them.Some people will come to us that they need a child, some want promotion in their office, some may be looking for favour and protection.”
The land vendor, Adegboyega Babatunde, claimed that the suspects bought two acres of land from him  five years ago for N50,000.

“I will take back my land now and give them their money back because we do not want evil people in this community,” he said.
 Commissioner of Police Muhammed Katsina led reporters and other security operatives to the den at 1:30pm.

 “This place is a multi-criminal den that accommodates all manners of crimes, such as kidnapping, robbery and money doubling.Here is a place meant specifically for exploiting the public. Their victims cut across the length and breath of this country, some in Abuja, Lagos, Kogi and other states.This place was discovered by my men after a painstaking investigation.You are aware that a man was kidnapped in Kishi, although he was later released.But we never relented and this was the place where the man was kept for days.“
