Sahara Reporters' Publisher, Omoyele Sowore Blasts Linda Ikeji Over False Report

Omoyele Sowore and Linda Ikeji 

Owner and Founder of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore has attacked Linda Ikeji accusing her of publishing false report against him.

Linda some few days ago had reported that Sowore was being barred by security agents from leaving the country until further notice.

The report came following a petition filed by Fatodu Lekan to the Police Command Headquarters in Lagos State against Sowore of Sahara Reporters over criminal defamation, threat to life and Blackmail.


Using his Facebook page, Sowore blasted Linda saying that the story against him is false. He added that Linda might be working for the former police commissioner who is her close friend.

"To assuage fears of all those of you (my good friends) who may be confused by the latest propaganda that I was "barred from leaving Nigeria," please rest assured that it is not true. The Lagos CP is down and out, but they need a cop-out. Linda Ikeji is returning favors to the police because Lagos CP Owoseni saved her from Wizkid via "mediation."

I decided that I won't leave Nigeria, and thus rejected any reconciliation and/or "mediation "with the subject in question, because I have irreconcilable differences with the establishment that sent him on this perilous assignment.

Please do not pay mind to all the lies; I was just told this evening that the Chief of Army Staff, Yusuf Buratai had to ask his lawyer Osuagwu Okechukwu to help with this process because they felt really bad about the expose on his Dubai real estate transactions they could not forgive SR.

Trust that I am home with you all, fully prepared for the next challenge that life may throw my way.

Aluta Continua!" Sowore wrote.

JUST IN: Police Raid Premium Times Head Office; Arrest Publisher, Journalist (Photo)

The head office of popular Nigerian online news platform, Premium Times, has been raided by officers of the Nigerian Police, as the publisher and a journalist were arrested by the security operatives.

Below is how the site reported the story;


The Nigeria police have raided PREMIUM TIMES head office in Abuja, and arrested the newspaper’s publisher.

The publisher, Dapo Olorunyomi, was arrested alongside the paper’s judiciary correspondent, Evelyn Okakwu. Plain-clothed officers conducted search at the office shortly after 5p.m. Thursday, and said they were acting on a complaint filed by the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai.

The arrests came days after PREMIUM TIMES turned down the army’s demand to retract news stories about the Nigerian Army and its operations. The paper’s Editor-in-Chief, Musikilu Mojeed, condemned the raid.

“They should stop deluding themselves that they can muzzle the press and intimidate PREMIUM TIMES,” said Mr. Mojeed. “They should know that our loyalty lies with our readers and the Nigerian people who have a right to know.”

He said the paper will continue “to discharge its responsibilities in line with global best practices, social responsibility and patriotism, even at great risk to our personal liberties”.

Total Disaster! Iran in Chaos as 17-Story Building Collapses...You Won't Believe How Many People Have Died (Video)


The scene of the tragic incident 

A tall building of 17-storeys has fallen after it caught fire killing many people in Tehran. At least 75 people in Tehran including 45 firefighters have been killed after responding to the huge fire in a commercial high rise building which caused the structure to collapse.

According to Iranian state media, it is believed people are still trapped beneath the rubble.


Emergency services, including ten fire engines, are still at the 17-storey tall Plasco building, where the blaze is still burning after breaking out at around 8am (5.30am GMT) on Thursday morning.

Dramatic footage showed the iconic structure collapsing in on itself in just a few seconds, taking out three fire trucks as it fell. Thick plumes of brown smoke filled the sky and onlookers screamed as the building came down.

At least 38 firefighters were taken to hospital, state media had reported earlier. It did not specify whether those injured were hurt by the blaze or the building's collapse.

The fire is now under control, fire department spokesperson Jalal Maleki said.

The 50-year-old Plasco, home to a major shopping centre, was one of Tehran's most recognisable landmarks.

Dozens of anxious shopkeepers and others desperate to save their valuables were kept back by police as firefighters continued to secure the scene.

The tower was built in the early 1960s by Jewish businessman Habib Elghanian and named after his plastics manufacturing company. At the time of its construction the Plasco was the tallest building on the city's skyline.

Below is are videos showing the moment the building collapsed:

Nigerian Air Force Overflies Gambia Ready to Strike at Jammeh

The Nigerian air force is flying over The Gambia, an official said Thursday, as African troops seemed ready to force incumbent Yahya Jammeh to quit after his December election defeat, AFP reports.

This comes after President-elect Adama Barrow was sworn in at the country’s embassy in Senegal, while Jammeh has continued to cling on to power.


Confirming the news, Nigerian Air Force spokesman Ayodele Famuyiwa told AFP. “I confirm that the armed reconnaissance air force are over Gambia.

“They have the capacity to strike.” Famuyiwa said that negotiations were still ongoing with Jammeh, a leader who has ruled the West African country for 22 years.

“What we understand right now is that it appears he’s trying to reconsider his position, he may stand down,” Famuyiwa said, speaking from Abuja.

“But we have our troops there and they are there to enforce the mandate.”

The UN Security Council was set to vote Thursday on backing ECOWAS efforts to force Jammeh to hand over power as the West African regional bloc amassed a military force ready to intervene.

The Economic Community Of West African States has repeatedly called on Jammeh to accept his defeat and honour the country’s constitution.

Bostwana Ceases to Recognize Yahya Jammeh as President of The Gambia


Yahya Jammeh 

The Government of Botswana has taken the lead among all African countries to declare it no longer recognises Yahaya Jammeh as the Gambian President.

According to a statement on its Twitter handle, @BWGovernment, it said it no longer recognises Jammeh as The Gambian President.

In the statement, Botswana said its decision is sequel to the adamance of Jammeh to peacefully relinquish power even against the will of the Gambians.

The statement read thus:


“RE: THE GAMBIA – BOTSWANA NO LONGER RECOGNISES MR. JAMMEH

“PRESS RELEASE Gaborone, 19th January 2017:

"Following Mr. Yahya Jammeh’s refusal to hand over power to the President-elect Adama Barrow, in accordance with the expressed will of the Gambian people, the Government of Botswana announces that it will no longer recognise Mr. Jammeh as the President of Gambia, together with his Government.

“This decision which takes effect immediately is consistent with Botswana’s position as articulated through the Press Release of 16th December 2016.

“Mr. Jammeh’s decision not to respect the will of the Gambian people undermines the ongoing efforts to consolidate democracy and good governance in The Gambia and Africa as a whole. This is also in direct contravention of the spirit and aspirations of the African Union Constitutive Act.

“The Government of Botswana therefore continues to appeal to the international community to do all within its power to exert pressure on Mr. Jammeh to hand over power in order to ensure a smooth transition.”

Beyonce and Other Top Singers to March Against Donald Trump

American singer, Beyonce Beyoncé showed her support for the post-inauguration, anti-Trump Women’s March in a Facebook post. “Together with Chime for Change, we raise our voices as mothers, artists, and as activists,” she wrote.

The rally will take place in Washington, D.C. and other cities around the world.


Chime for Change, a global campaign Beyoncé cofounded aims to empower women and is an official partner with the Saturday’s event.

“As #GlobalCitizens, we can make our voices heard and turn awareness into meaningful action and positive change.”

The Women’s March takes place the day after Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. The march was organized in response to his misogynistic and prejudicial rhetoric he used throughout his campaign.

Groups that feel attacked by Trump’s derogatory remarks include: women, Mexican-Americans Muslim citizens and members and allies of the LGBTQIA community. Artists like Katy Perry, Cher, Zendaya, Madonna and more have not only publicly supported the efforts of the Women’s March but will also be in attendance at the event, which begins at 10 a.m. at the intersection of Independence Avenue and Third Street SW.

At press time, there are 616 sister marches on record that will take place across the United States, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.

Beyoncé’s show of support follows one of the most vocally political periods in her career. The singer infused the rhetoric and ideologies of the Black Lives Matter movement into her visual album Lemonade, which featured the mothers of slain black men like Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.

At the Super Bowl, her back-up dancers dressed in Black Panthers-inspired gear. Just prior to the election, she performed at a rally in support of the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Trump Dating Site for Singles Booms with Membership


Donald Trump 

As the inauguration of the U.S President-elect, Donald J. Trump draws nearer to some hours, a dating site that matches Trump-supporting singles is enjoying a boom as new registrants keep trooping in.

TrumpSingles.com has racked up around 24,000 members since its official launch in June.


David Goss, the site’s founder, told FoxNews.com that membership jumped by about 5,000 after Donald Trump’s shock election victory in November, and another wave of new members has just signed up.

“We have had an even bigger response now, in the last few days,” he said. “We have had five to six thousand in the last two-and-a-half days.” “In the last three days we have had more people come to the site than we have since we started,” Goss, added.

The site, which aims to “make dating great again” was set up by Goss, a Republican, when he saw the bitterness that accompanied last year’s presidential election.

“It was basically the divisiveness of the election season,” he said. “I have friends that I talk to that are Democrats and Republicans that have related stories of going on dates and when the topic of politics is mentioned, the date turns sour from there.”

TrumpSingles.com is not the only dating site to emerge amid the tumult of the 2016 presidential election. Maple Match, for example, helps Americans fleeing the Trump presidency find a Canadian soulmate.

Goss attributes the recent spike in TrumpSingles.com membership partly to the media attention the site has received, as well as Trump supporters seeking kindred spirits.

“With the amount of hate that Trump supporters get, they want a community to go to, especially folks that are in more liberal areas,” he said.

“For example, it’s hard being a Republican in the L.A. area – it’s not an easy thing.”

TrumpSingles.com members pay $19.95 a month to use the service.
