1 Child Killed, 3 Wounded in Kenya Church Attack

Kenyan authorities say a hand grenade has ripped through a church in the capital, Nairobi, killing a child of nine year old and wounding three others.

 Police say the attack appeared to target a Sunday school class for children. There has been no claim of responsibility for Sunday’s attack on the St. Polycarp church on the outskirts of Nairobi.

 However, authorities suspect the Somali militant group al-Shabab. Kenya has seen a series of similar deadly attacks on churches since the country sent troops into neighboring Somalia last year along with African Union forces to fight al-Shabab.

The group, linked to al-Qaida, abandoned its last stronghold in Somalia on Saturday, vowing to retaliate against Kenyan and AU forces.

                                                       Just take a look at this


















Three passengers who were on board said that the crew had made no announcements about a mechanical problem during the flight.

Emergency vehicles including fire trucks were on hand for the landing, the AFP news agency reported. The airline's online tracker said the flight arrived in Lagos at 2:29pm (13:29 GMT), but the plane touched down at least 30 minutes before that.

Why Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's underwear bomb failed to detonate

We all know Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab who tried to explode a Northwest Flight 253 over Detroit in the United States of America wore underwear for three weeks to be exact, and it may have been the reason why he was unsuccessful in his 2009 terrorist plans aboard a Detroit-bound airliner.

The new details were revealed by two FBI agents who played a role in securing a confession from Abdulmutallab, shortly after the bungled plot.




During his trial he said the bomb in his underwear was a ‘blessed weapon’ to avenge poorly treated Muslims around the world. Two FBI agents told WXYZ TV that Umar confessed to the plot, saying that he had worn the explosive underwear for three weeks in order to get used to it and make sure he could get it through security.

“So basically for three weeks he wore this garment, these underwear with this device in it. We think ultimately that is probably what caused the disruption in the sequence of events in the explosion,” said FBI agent Ted Peissig. The agents also revealed that Umar was not recruited by al Qaeda, but the other way around.

“He sought out al Qaeda relentlessly,” another FBI agent on the case, Mike Connelly said. “He persisted and he was almost turned away at times, you know, by al Qaeda. But he refused to relent.” FBI agents also say the Underwear Bomber might have inadvertently foiled his own plot because of his obsession about making sure the bomb would not be detected.

They further revealed that he had been instructed to detonate the bomb over a populated area to maximize the death toll. Here is the account of the FBI agents as reported by WXYZ TV In Abdulmutallab’s mind it was an act of martyrdom and jihad. He had no feelings for the men, women and children around him who were about die, according to the FBI agents. “He did not bat an eye in saying if that plane was going to go down, it was going to go down. That was God’s call.

That wasn’t his call. His responsibility was just to detonate the bomb, and whatever happened, happened,” says agent Connelly. As the huge jumbo jet carrying over 300 people was approaching Detroit, Abulmutallab disappeared into the restroom to wash himself, a ritual for his passage into the next life. When he returned to his seat he told the guy sitting next to him that he wasn’t feeling well.

“And pulled a blanket almost completely concealing himself up to the chin,” says Agent Peissig. Using a plastic syringe, Abdulmutallab injected a mixture of liquids and solids into the explosive chemicals already packed into his underwear. But Instead of exploding, the bomb burst into flames, setting his clothes and the blanket on fire, seriously burning him.

The two agents who visited Nigeria during the course of his investigation said they extracted detailed and chilling information about Abdulmutallab and his mission, getting a rare glimpse into the mind of a suicide bomber. “In his tone, his conversation, he’s very reserved,” adds agent Connelly.

 “He’s deliberate in his speech.” “The witnesses remarked about how he just looked like a simple young school boy,” says Peissig. But appearances don’t match reality in the case of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. Agents say he was an extreme fanatic and a very dangerous man.

He was hell-bent on taking down a jumbo jet over Detroit with no consideration for the hundreds who would die in the plane and on the ground.

“He is completely different from any terrorist that I’ve had the ability to talk to,” explains Connelly. “Different because of his absolute devotion to Jihad. The degree of conviction that he had  is unparalleled.” Daily Mail

Sahara reporters- EFCC Arrests 24 Year-Old Currency Courier Trying to Smuggle N1.1billion Cash out of Nigeria

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested a 24 year-old Nigerian, Abubakar Tijani Sheriff for attempting to travel with the sum of $7 million (N1, 120,000billion).

He was arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International airport, Lagos as he was trying to travel to Dubai aboard a United Arab Emirates flight on Thursday.
After his arrest, he said that he had a total sum of $4.5million. But when he was thoroughly searched, he was found to have $7,049,444 on him.

He later confessed that he was a courier for 20 individuals who hired him to take the money for them to Dubai. Authorities said that the money was proceeds from illegal deals and he is a suspected money laundering courier. He has already mentioned 20 prominent Nigerians who are the owners of the money.

The EFCC in a statement released by its spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren to Sahara Reporters yesterday said that “Investigations by the EFCC showed that Sheriff is a regular traveller and one of several couriers of illegal cash suspected to be proceeds of crime.”
“Travellers leaving the country are statutorily required to declare cash in excess of $10,000. However, under the provisions of the Money Laundering Act, it is not sufficient to declare excess cash; the onus is on the person making the declaration to explain the source of the excess cash and the reason for the export.”

He is now being detained at the EFCC’s holding facility in Lagos pending his arraignment in court.

A couple -Nigerian scammers- tried to claim £3.8m using 1,400 different identities

 
Abimbola Abiola,34 the photo of the lady above and the man Adeola Thomas, 38 below
This couple jailed for a total of almost 10 years for trying to claim £3.8million in an ‘eye-watering’ benefits scam using 1,400 stolen identities.

Adeola Thomas,38, assisted by his partner, Abimbola Abiola,34, managed to pocket £87,000 after submitting almost 2,500 handwritten applications for tax credits and benefits.

The pair spent the money on designer clothing and electrical items including a 50-inch plasma television.
But the fraud was discovered when benefits staff noticed the same address was being used for multiple claims, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard.

Thomas, an illegal immigrant, was jailed for seven years while Abiola, also a Nigerian national with leave to remain in the UK, received two-and-a-half years.

Passing sentence, Judge William Kennedy said: ‘This was no less than a criminal industry, with simple and eye watering criminality designed to maximise the loss to the public.


‘It was a difficult investigation carried out with skill and tenacity. ‘The largest single joint conspiracy [of its kind] for these departments and the actual loss was kept down because of the work of both departments.’

 Judge Kennedy also indicated that both Thomas and Abiola should be deported at the end of their prison terms. The pair, who carried out the scam between January 3, 2007 and October 7, 2011, tried to claim £827,000 from HMRC, securing £43,000.

They also claimed £3 million from the Department of Work and Pensions and received £44,000. With Abiola’s help, Thomas used stolen personal details to complete 2,495 handwritten application forms, which were sent to the appropriate departments for processing.

When the claims were successful, the pair withdrew cash from acquaintances' bank accounts or from bogus post office accounts that Thomas, pictured, had set up It is believed that others unknown to investigators, also provided postal addresses and assisted with correspondence. When the claims were successful, the pair withdrew cash from acquaintances' bank accounts or from bogus post office accounts that Thomas, who masterminded the scam, had set up.

As well as analysing tax credit records, computer systems, hand written application forms and bank account details and listening to hours of recorded phones calls to the Tax Credit Helpline, HMRC investigators viewed CCTV footage showing activity outside various North London Post Office ATMs and carried out surveillance on Thomas.

 He was arrested outside a cash point at Upper Clacton Post Office in Hackney, east London last October 7 where he was found to be in possession of 17 Post Office accounts. He also had two mobile phones and two fraudulently completed application forms addressed to Job Centre Plus. Abiola, a mother-of-one, was caught on the same day with £4,125 cash in her handbag, which she claimed was child benefit payment.

 Thomas, of Hackney, east London, admitted three counts of conspiracy to defraud and money laundering. Abiola, of the same address was found guilty of four counts of conspiracy to defraud, money laundering and possession of criminal property following a trial at the court in August.

Saudi Arabia defends refusal to accept Nigerian women for hajj

Saudi Arabia on Friday defended its decision to turn back hundreds of Nigerian women who flew into the kingdom for the hajj, saying they had failed to abide by the rules for the annual Muslim pilgrimage.

“The rules for the pilgrimage have been in force for several years and must be applied as they stand, since nothing new has been introduced,” said hajj ministry spokesman Hatem bin Hassan Qadi, quoted by the official news agency SPA.

“Women aged under 45 must be accompanied on the journey by a ‘mahramu,’” a male with legal authority, the ministry said in a statement.



“This is mentioned on the entry visas … and those who do not respect the rules are not authorised to enter” the kingdom, which is home to Islam’s holiest sites in Mecca and Medina, it said.

 Hundreds of Nigerian women, among more than a thousand denied entry to Saudi Arabia, flew back from Jeddah late Thursday after Nigeria suspended flights to the kingdom for next month’s hajj.

The angry would-be pilgrims, who were turned back because they were not accompanied by men, denounced their treatment at the hands of the Saudi authorities, with one traveller saying they had been treated as criminals.

A statement by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria described the situation as an “unprecedented and worrisome development”. In all, more than a thousand Nigerian women have been stopped from making the hajj.

They began arriving at Jeddah airport on Sunday and some had been stranded in Saudi Arabia for five days.

Some Nigerians bombard nude photos to Hong Kong billionaire’s daughter for marriage offer.

Gigi Chao, the daughter of a Hong Kong billionaire says she has been bombarded with marriage proposals – and even nude photographs – from Nigerians and other nationals after her father offered £40 million to the man who could woo her. Here is a recap on that

Gigi Chao, daughter of property tycoon Cecil Chao, entered a civil partnership with her girlfriend of seven years in a ceremony in Paris five months ago.

But Mr Chao, 76, has told the South China Morning Post that reports of his daughter’s civil ceremony were “false”. He announced the HK$500 million dowry earlier this week.

It has sparked a deluge of offers. Speaking on Thursday Miss Chao, 33, said she had received about 200 proposals and that the number of people following her on Twitter, YouTube and Facebook had jumped by 1,500 since her father’s announcement.

“People are contacting me on Facebook, by email, on Twitter. It’s ridiculous. I can’t sort out the serious proposals from the half-hearted ones. I can’t make head or tail of it,” she told The Daily Telegraph.



Miss Chao, an executive director of her father’s company, Cheuk Nang, said that in addition to receiving enquiries from gentlemen who say they are looking for love and ask her out on a date, she has received some introductions that are less conventional.

Some hopefuls have attached nude photos of themselves or provided information about their financial situations. She has received proposals from all over the world, including Nigeria, India, Turkey and Bulgaria. Numerous bankers have contacted her. “Some of them had obviously done their research, you know, gone on my Facebook and looked at my background,” she said. “Some of them are quite poetic.” But far from getting angry at her father, she said she was “touched”.

 “At first I was entertained by it, and then that entertainment turned into the realisation and conviction that I am a really lucky girl to have such a loving daddy, because it’s really sweet of him to do something like this as an expression of his fatherly love,” she said. While Miss Chao knew that her father would go public denying the union, she did not know he would offer the reward. “I think the HK$500 million really came as an afterthought.” Even though Mr Chao has not accepted the union, Ms Chao said she loved her father and that they had a good relationship.

“It’s not that he can’t accept me,” she said. “It’s that he can’t accept how society would view me and the status that it would incur. Marriage is still a form of social status. I do understand him. I understand why he’s doing this.” She added: “But I don’t appreciate getting 1,500 emails.” Ms Chao, who also runs Haut Monde Talent, a model management and PR firm, met her partner, Sean Yeung, who also goes by Sean Eav, while they were working together.

 Miss Chao she was drawn to Miss Yeung because she was straightforward, not manipulative, honest, had strong family values and cared about her friends deeply. “I’m very happy when I’m with her,” she said. Miss Chao, who has dated men and women, said she has always been open and honest about her relationships to her family. However her mother has not accepted her sexuality. Ms Chao recalled that when she told her mother about a relationship with a girl when she was 16 years old, her mother “banged her head against the wall, literally”.

 Although they have become more visible in recent years, members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community in Hong Kong are still largely not accepted by the vast majority of the population. Miss Chao believes gay rights are picking up, but said work was still needed on the social mentality. Mr Chao is not so conventional himself.

 He made headlines in 2003 when his Rolls-Royce caught fire while he and his girlfriend were inside.

The tycoon has never married and once claimed to have had “intimate relations” with about 10,000 women.
