Falae escapes death as Bullion van escort opens fire on his car

Policemen escorting a bullion van on Tuesday, opened fire on the vehicle conveying a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Olu Falae.
The incident took place at Ile Oluji Junction on the expressway as Falae was heading to Ile-Ife, to attend a visit of the Afenifere leaders with the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi.
The National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party, was quoted by Punch Newspapers to have recounted his experience at Ile-Ife before the meeting with the Ooni.

“I was coming from Akure approaching Ilesa. I saw some vehicles ahead of me. There was a bullion van in front, the vehicles ahead of us were overtaking the bullion van and we followed too.”
“I barely overtook them when I heard a shot and a bang on my car. We stopped and we saw that they had fired at our car.”
“They didn’t stop. We stopped at Erin-Ijesa and complained to the police at the check-point that we were fired at by some policemen attached to a bullion van at Ile-Oluji juction,” Falae was quoted to have said.

Elton John reveals why he won't leave his entire £200m fortune to his sons

Elton John has revealed he is not leaving his estimated £200million fortune to his  two son. 
Instead the star and his husband, David Furnish , insist the boys, Zachary and Elijah, must stand on their own two feet. 
Sir Elton tells UK Mirror

Of course I want to leave my boys in a very sound financial state.But it’s terrible to give kids a silver spoon. It ruins their life.
“Listen, the boys live the most incredible lives, they’re not normal kids, and I’m not pretending they are. But you have to have some semblance of normality, some respect for money, some
respect for work.”
The couple are currently drafting their wills and David cites US tycoon Warren Buffett , who is leaving half his £53billion fortune to charity and considerably less to his children, as their inspiration. 
He says:
“We’re still working out the details and it’s about finding the balance.
“Warren Buffet, the third wealthiest man in America, has a really cool model in that he leaves his children enough money so that they have a house, a car and all their basic needs covered and cared for so they never need worry. But it’s not crazy, silly, go-wild money so that they could be buying Picassos or private jets.
“Anything beyond the basic, they have to go out and earn it themselves.
“If they want a Picasso, they have to go out and earn it. I think there’s real sensibility in that.
The couple also agree with comments made in 2014 by Sting, who said his children will not inherit his £180million fortune. Instead, the musician likened his wealth to “albatrosses round their necks”.
Adds Elton:
“I think what Sting said is very right, it’s a good idea. I came from a very working class family and was born in a council estate house. I earned everything I did from hard work and that’s the way they’ve got to do it as well.
“They have to do chores in the house – take their plates to be cleaned, help in the kitchen, tidy their rooms and help in the garden, and each time they do they get a little star to put on these charts they’ve made. They understand they need to do these things, and they enjoy it.”

Caityln Jenner reveals she's 'open' to dating a 'special guy'

Caitlyn Jenner is open to the idea of dating men, but not just any man, as she notes in a new clip for the second season of “I Am Cait.”

In the latest preview footage, Jenner is seen taking a road trip with friends when the topic turns to dating. Her hairstylist Courtney Nanson brings up the idea of Jenner, who has previously only dated women, being with a man. Hanson explains that she believes Jenner would enjoy being taken care of for once.

“To be honest, if I was in a relationship with a guy, I would enjoy being treated like that,” Jenner said. “Opening doors for you, doing all which you would think is the traditional stuff in a guy and a girl relationship,” she continued. Jenner added, “It’d have to be a very special guy to do that, but yeah, I’d be open to that.”

Her ex-wife, Kris Jenner, also discussed the possibility of the former Olympian now dating men. She said on Monday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show” that it’s “confusing” to her, but expressed that she ultimately wants her former husband “to be happy and be really comfortable in all the things where she says she wasn’t her true authentic self for most of her life.”

N5, 000 stipend: Buhari, APC duped Nigerians – Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) duped Nigerians by obtaining their votes by trick, declaring that; “Everything Buhari and his party promised Nigerians when they were looking for votes, they had denied and it won’t be a surprise if one day, Buhari comes out to deny that he was elected on the platform of the APC.”
He described Buhari’s declaration that he would not pay the N5, 000 stipend he promised to unemployed youths in the country and Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed’s claim that creation of three million jobs per year was not promised by the APC as the peak of political 419 that the President and his party represent.
He said; “They have not fulfilled any of the promises they made to Nigerians. In fact, they have even told us that they never made any promise. It is close to one year that Buhari assumed office; no single job has been created. Instead of the three million jobs per year that they promised, what we have been witnessing is job losses, economic hardship and budget padding.”
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said that it was more worrisome that President Buhari always chose foreign lands to make major policy pronouncements, asking whether Buhari had turned himself to Nigeria’s Diaspora or Online President.
“Even though I am a lover of Muslims, I relate with them as I do with Christians in the state and across the country, but Nigeria must remain secular and a free nation, where its citizens proclaim the name of Jesus Christ and Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) freely.”
Fayose said the moment Buhari disowned his own campaign document titled: “My Covenant with Nigerians,” that was circulated to Nigerians during the electioneering and also published in national newspapers and posted online on March 16 and 17, 2015, he knew that Nigerians had been that duped.

“Nigerians have now realised that they are inside a ‘one-chance bus’, because Buhari and his APC have disowned their entire campaign promises by dumping their campaign document titled: ‘My Covenant with Nigerians.’

“This document that they disowned in August, last year, contained everything they promised Nigerians and if, today, President Buhari chose faraway Qatar to announce that he won’t pay the N5, 000 promised unemployed youths and Lai Mohammed is here in Nigeria saying no job was promised, no one should be surprised.

“Rather, Nigerians can only begin to pray that God, who rescued Daniel from den of lions will rescue us from this Buhari/APC one-chance bus that we have entered,” he said.
