The attack, which a military source said involved a convoy of about 50 Boko Haram members storming Gubio, lasted for about five hours on Saturday afternoon and ended about 9.30pm, local resident Malam Yusuf Mohammed said.

Mohammed estimated that more than 400 houses had been burned by the insurgents.
“They came, shooting, threatening to kill everybody. They set fire on many houses, burnt down our peoples’ vehicles and motorcycles. We lost 43 people including two children,” Abubakar Mondama, leader of a local vigilante group, told journalists.

FACTS : 14 realities every couple faces after the one-day breakup

Image
“Don’t talk to me.”“I said, don’t talk to me ever again you f*cking dick.”“Oh wow, you’re so f*cking pathetic.”“Oh yeah, f*ck you.”“Don’t talk to me. I don’t want to see you again.”“We’re done.”Sound familiar? Are you cringing as you read the words, reminded of your own hostility and (most likely) overreaction?Are you thinking about those embarrassing sobs to your friends over what a dick he is?Are you scorning yourself for acting like such a dramatic idiot who told everyone you were breaking up, only to get back together hours later?Don’t be. The one-day breakup is an inevitable point in any relationship — as embarrassing and messed up as it is.Every couple experiences that fateful moment when they have their first fight, the first real threat of not being together forever.That earth-shattering moment when you leave the honeymoon phase and realize this might not actually be forever.We’re bound to snap at some point, whether it be over something big or something as stupid as a misplac…

ECONOMY : Subsidy: FG withdraws N395bn from Excess Crude Account

Image
The Federal Government withdrew the sum of N395bn in 2013 to fund subsidy on petroleum products, the Fiscal Responsibility Commission has said.FRC said this in its 2013 Annual Report and Audited Accounts which was released recently and obtained by our correspondent in Abuja on Friday.The commission said the withdrawal of the money from ECA to fund the subsidy regime on petroleum products was illegal as it lacked the backing of the law.The summary of transactions in the Excess Crude Account as of 2013 showed that N50bn was used to fund the subsidy regime in the first quarter of the year.

Preside at of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, admits he has not found life easy as head of the country’s football body. In this interview with PIUS AYINOR, he talks on his challenges and his plans to move the NFF forwardHow has it been running the federation?It has been a very tough call because football is a kind of religion in the country. It is the only thing that unites people. It is the number one, two and three sport in Nigeria. After football, there is hardly any other sport that attracts the attention football creates. We have a population of close to 170 million people eager to get only positive results. Because of this, it has been very challenging. Some weeks back, I was accosted at Hilton by a Nigerian that was very furious. He held me and requested that I explain to him certain things. I thought it was a joke until he asked me to sit down and he demanded with rage to know a lot of things. Although he later apologised, you could see the kind of enthusiasm t…
