When I enter houses, I ask people for money, phones and other valuables. If they resist, I will hack them with the axe. I use the axe for cutting victims who resist.”

Israel Shoots Down Unidentified Drone Near Syria Interim border.

Israel has shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle that entered Israeli airspace near the Syrian border on Sunday, the Israel Defense Forces confirmed.
The drone was destroyed by a Patriot surface-to-air missile over Quneitra in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said.
“In spite of the IDF’s sensitivity to recent occurrences in the proximity of the border, we have repeatedly stated that we will respond to any breach of Israel’s sovereignty and will continue to act to maintain safety and security to the civilians of the State of Israel,” Lerner added.
This is the first drone from Syria that Israel has shot down, although the IDF has shot down UAVs from Hamas and Hezbollah before.
It’s unclear which group in war-torn Syria was operating the UAV and why. It could have been the embattled government of President Bashar al-Assad or any of a number of rebel fighting groups or militant organizations.
The downing of the drone is the latest development in the Golan Heights on the Israeli-Syrian border, where United Nations peacekeepers were attacked on Saturday. U.N. officials said they were working to gain the release of dozens of peacekeepers detained by Islamist fighters when the attack occurred.
The U.N. has not identified the group responsible for detaining at least 44 peacekeepers, but an Israeli military official told CNN Syrian militants are behind the incident .
Al-Nusra Front fighters and other Syrian rebels seized control of the Syrian side of the Quneitra crossing last week — a capture that represents a new dynamic in a war long feared not only for its deadly effects inside Syria but for threatening to widen into a destabilizing regional conflict.
Syria is in turmoil as a bloody yearslong civil war rages on.
The United Nations Disengagement Observer Force has been in place in the Golan Heights since 1974 to maintain a ceasefire between Israel and Syria.
Israel seized control of the Golan Heights during the 1967 Six-Day War and fought off an attempt by Syria in 1973 to retake the rocky plateau.
In 1981, Israel annexed the Golan Heights. It is considered by the international community to be occupied territory.

Beauty Queen Runs Away With Crown After Being Stripped Of Her Title!

18 year old Burmese beauty, May Myat Noe has made away with the bejewelled Swarovski tiara – valued around $100,000 (£60,000)- $200,000 (£120,000)  she was 'crowned' with when she won Miss Asia Pacific World in May in Seoul after she was stripped of her title!
The disgraced teenager who was crowned Miss Asia Pacific World in May at a competition in the South Korean capital of Seoul was later discovered to be extremely rude and a disappointment to the organizers was reported to be dishonest while leeching off the organizers the whole time before she was stripped of the title.
After her win, the contest organisers arranged to revamp the teenager's looks after booking singing and video deals for her,  David Kim, director of media for the pageant said: “We thought she should be more beautiful … so as soon as she arrived we sent her to the hospital to operate on her breasts. “It’s our responsibility,” adding that sponsors picked up the $10,000 (£6,000) tab, as they have for past winners. “If she has no good nose, then maybe, if she likes, we can operate on her nose. If it’s breasts, then breasts.”
Mr Kim revealed the troubles started when the beauty queen brought her mother with her to Seoul on a supposed 10-day visit, that turned into three months, with costs rising all the time.
The organizers said she “lied” the whole time and “never had respect for the main organisation, the national director, the manager, media or fans who made her the winner,” which made the organizers decide to strip the queen of her title, She was given a plane ticket back to Yangon, but never showed up and made away with the tiara in tow!
The organizers believes the teenager thinks as long as she keeps this crown she’s the winner,” but they've released a statement saying “She’s not.”! So weird, No?

EBOLA: 3 Suspected Cases In PH As APC Tells Nigerians To Hold President Jonathan Responsible If The Virus Spread More

Three people have been taken to the Ebola Virus Disease  quarantine centre at Oduoha, Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State.
 The State Commissioner for Health, Sampson Parker, made this known on Sunday just as the Federal Government said another emergency meeting of the National Council of Health over the EVD would hold in Abuja today. The last meeting took place on August 11, 2014.
 Parker, who addressed journalists,   said those quarantined were   a doctor, a pharmacist and a woman who came into contact with Dr. Iyke Enemuo, who died of the virus in Port Harcourt on August 22.

The pharmacist and the doctor are members of staff of Sam Steel Hospital while  the nurse worked at the Good Heart Hospital where Enemuo died.

Sam Steel Hospital was founded by Enemuo, who contracted Ebola while treating an ECOWAS diplomat, Koye Olu-Ibukun, who travelled to Port Harcourt after coming into contact with the Liberian-American, Patrick Sawyer. Sawyer died from the   virus in Nigeria.

He said, “They (pharmacist, nurse and doctor) have not been confirmed (as having Ebola) and we are waiting for the result of the investigation today -Sunday”

Parker, who as of 8pm on Sunday had not made the outcome of the tests public,   also confirmed   that Enemuo’s widow was at the isolation centre in Lagos where she is receiving treatment having tested positive to the virus.

Some 200 primary and secondary contacts have been traced, although about 60 had yet to be spoken to, he added. None of them had shown symptoms.

He said,

 “I have been telling you before now that almost 200 persons have been line-traced. Out of this number, we are still to be in touch with about 60 of them.
“But 50 high risk contacts have been identified. Because of stigma and the rest of them, these persons are not coming up but we are still on them.
“We are concentrating on the names we have to capture in our (monitoring) activities but the good news is that we have been making good progress in checking the spread of Ebola.”
The commissioner also said the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital, Sam Steel Hospital, Mandate Hotels and Good Heart Hospital had been decontaminated.

He added that the state now had a mobile laboratory for testing people.



Meanwhile, the  National Council of Health-NCH will meet again today in Abuja to “review the situation, preparedness by states and ascertain their compliance with the recommendation of the last meeting” on   containing the Ebola outbreak in the country.
The Special Assistant, Media and Communications, to the Minister of Health, Dan Nwomeh, and the   Kogi State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Omede Idris confirmed the meeting.
“The meeting will hold on Monday at Barcelona Hotel, Wuse,” said Nwomeh. He however did not state the agenda of the meeting.
The NCH comprises the minister of Health, state commissioners for   health.   Except in an emergency, the council meets once in a year.
Our correspondents gathered that the meeting was convened to discuss the implementation of some of the decisions reached at the August 11, 2014 parley,   particularly the directive on transport of corpses and how   those who died of EVD should be handled.
Also, the All Progressives Congress has said Nigerians must hold President Goodluck Jonathan personally responsible if Ebola spreads more than it has done in the country.
The party said that the President failed to stop a rally in his support in Port Harcourt on Saturday, despite warning from individuals and groups.
The APC, in a statement issued on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, saidnever before had a President of a country sabotaged his administration’s policy and endangered the lives of his compatriots as Jonathan had done on the Ebola issue.
It said the same President, who declared a national emergency on Ebola and advised against large gatherings to prevent the spread of the virus, was the first to flout his own advice by   failing to stop the rally by the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria in Port Harcourt.
The party noted that the rally was held a few days after the virus was detected in the city and at a time that contact tracing was going on to find all those who might have come into contact with the medical doctor victim of the disease.
The party stated,
 ‘‘On the altar of political desperation, President Jonathan put the lives of Nigerians in danger. In order to realise his ambition for re-election, President Jonathan has shown he is ready to sacrifice as many lives of Nigerians as possible. There goes the President’s statement that his political ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian. This President simply says what he doesn’t mean.”
 Dr. Ruben Abati, the President’s spokes person is yet to comment on the statement.

"I Hope All My Artistes Are As Successful As Wizkid" - Banky W

Nigerian R&B singer and EME record label Exec, Banky W is super proud of his former protege, Wizkid that he now wishes the other artists signed to his label could be as successful.
In his interview with Channels TV's "Rubbin Minds" Sunday, Banky said its always a 'good thing' for younger artists to grow up and have independent careers. He says:
"I signed Wiz and he blow up and now he is doing 'Star Boy' (music label) and that is a good thing. That is not a bad thing... The interesting thing is to allow an artist to renegotiate. Wizkid has earned the right to sit at the table to do what he wants to do and I hope all my artistes are as successful as Wizkid."
The "Jaiye Ori Mi" hit-maker also debunked claims that Wizkid's tune, "The Matter" was inspired by disagreement between the duo during the latter’s contract renegotiation.
He insists that both parties remain cool but blames haters for always biulding reports around negativity:
"I think that people tend to make things a little more negative than they are... Every label executive prays for their artistes to grow to the point when they want to set up their own label and they have the ability to do so. It is a natural progression in music."

Kid Cudi Collapses At Chicago Concert.

US rapper Kid Cudi faints while signing an autograpgh for a fan in Chicago on Saturday night.
According to reports, the rapper was taken out of the crowd by several security guards who were on duty.
After his performance at the North Coast Music Festival, the rapper was said to have been sweating profusely as he later faced the waiting crowd.

TMZ reports that he appeared fine one moment but was laying on the floor the next.
Hours after his health scare, the former G.O.O.D Music rapper tweeted:
 
"Mad love to the security who were there and helped me out tonight. Really awesome dudes! Thanx for nursing me back to health ha ... I'll do better and make sure to eat properly on show days :) scouts honor! ... If I scared anyone tonight I am so so sorry from the bottom of my heart."
Did he just apologize for almost dying?

CONFESSION: ‘I Tried Dating Genevieve’ – Banky W

Musician, Banky W was a guest on the "Rubbin Minds" show today and he opened up about his relationship status and the women he has crushed on.
The EME executive said that he had a huge crush on Genevieve Nnaji and even tried to go after her but it didn’t work.
He said:
"I tried but Genevieve is Genevieve. I had a big crush on her at one point but now we are really cool friends"
He also revealed that he had a big crush on Niyola but after he signed her to EME, she became like his little sister so there could be no relationship.
When asked if he is under pressure to get married, he said:
"I think that there is a certain pressure that society brings and probably even more so the Nigerian society.
So like your parents, once you graduate they start asking when you are going to get married so you can get me grandchildren...so it’s just the mentality but I think it’s probably an unhealthy obsession with weddings and probably not as great an obsession with healthy marriages and for me it’s like who you get married to or when you get married is one of the major decisions that you can make.
So its wiser that you do it when you are sure that you are ready and you have found the person that you want to do it with and so on and so forth rather than succumb to whatever pressure or whatever it is because nobody is going to live that life with you.
Nobody is going to wake up with the person for the rest of your life. So I don’t believe in that and I think my parents know me well enough to not....they know I don't respond to such things. So do I look forward to getting married?
Absolutely, but when the person and the time is right. I have friends who I went to school with who got married and are now divorced and I don't want that to be my story so I would rather wait, find the person, make myself right, make the person right and so on and so forth and do it right one time rather than try and fail and be married for 72 days"
Banky  also stated that he is not currently in a relationship because “those things are hard to do.”

Acting governor of Adamawa state, Umaru Fintiri
Chairman of the screening committee, Ibrahim Mantu while speaking to newsmen after the screening exercise said Fintri’s participation  would be a violation of Section 191 (2) of the 1999 Nigerian Constitution.
Premium Times reports:
The section explains the circumstance under which the Speaker of a State Assembly can act as a state governor where a vacancy exist in which both the governor and his deputy have vacated office.
“Where any vacancy occurs in the circumstances mentioned in subsection (1) of this section during a period when the office of Deputy Governor of the State is also vacant, the Speaker of the House of Assembly of the State shall hold the office of Governor of the State for a period of not more than three months, during which there shall be an election of a new Governor of the State who shall hold office for the unexpired term of office of the last holder of the office,” the Constitution says.
Mr. Fintiri, a former Speaker, became the acting governor after the state assembly impeached former Governor Murtala Nyako and his Deputy, Bala Ngillari.
Saturday, August August 30, 2014 screening started 12pm and ended about 8:30pm.
Mr. Mantu said Mr. Fintiri’s role as acting governor is to ensure a smooth transition and a free and fair poll.
He said the duty of the acting governor “is to play the role of a midwife and not the one carrying the pregnancy”.
“Of all the contestants only one aspirant was found short of the requirement to contest the poll and his name is Ahmadu Umar Fintiri,” he said. “Section 191 (2) does not permit anyone to transit from acting to substantial governor, he is not a deputy governor.
” He added that: “Fintiri is not qualified because he is not like a deputy governor, but a child of circumstances. He is like a midwife and not seen as the one carrying the baby. His role should be somebody who should ensure a free and fair election. But he can appeal,” Mr. Mantu said”.
The appeal committee is expected to review the screening on Sunday.
Those cleared to participate at the primary election slated for Saturday, September 6, 2014 in Yola include former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu; former Military administrator of Lagos and Borno states, Buba Marwa; and Former Executive Secretary of the Universal Basic Education Commission, UBEC, Ahmed Modibbo.
Others are, former political adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak; former Presidential aide, Umar Ardo; former acting governor, James Barka; Andrawus Sawa, and former Senator Abubakar Girei.
Also cleared are former Minister of External Affairs, Idi Hong; Awwal Tukur, Markus Gundiri, Jerry Kumdisi and Aliyu Kama.
The committee screened the aspirants to ascertain their commitment and loyalty to the party, verify their membership card and party dues, as well as tax clearance among other things.
Speaking to newsmen after his screening, Mr. Ribadu expressed satisfaction with the process, and said he was confident the party leadership would ensure transparent primaries for all aspirants.
Also speaking, another aspirant, Ahmed Modibo, said the screening process was excellent and straightforward, adding that the rest was left for the committee to decide.
On his part, Mr. Ardo said that he was not satisfied with the waivers granted to Messrs. Ribadu, Marwa and Gundiri by the leadership of the party.
He said the waivers did not follow due process because it did not emanate from the ward to the national level.
He however said that he would abide by the decision of the party adding that he would also accept the result of the primaries if it followed due process.
Former Minister, Mr. Hong said “I am satisfied with the screening; the committee is doing its work. I am a candidate, and I am not stepping down.”
Andrawus Sawa, a 71-year-old aspirant and a retired Colonel, said he was in the race to ensure sanity in Adamawa State and to have a say in the happenings of the state.
Earlier, a visibly angry Mr. Fintiri declined to speak to reporters and hurriedly stormed out of the party secretariat.
Acting Governor Fintiri has faced mounting criticisms over his decision to contest the election to replace Mr. Nyako, whose removal he spearheaded.
Other candidates for the poll have accused him of staging a “coup” and lacking the moral right to contest.
On Saturday, loyalists of the ousted governor vowed to present evidence showing Mr. Fintiri had decamped to the APC.
