How thugs stole Senate maze

The Nigerian police say they have recovered the mace that was stolen from the Senate on Wednesday.

According to a statement signed by the deputy public relations officer in the police headquarters, Aremu Adeniran, and sent to PREMIUM TIMES, the police said they recovered the mace where the hoodlums abandoned it.

“The police teams engaged in massive raids of identified criminal spots/flashpoints, stop and search operations, visibility and confidence building patrols, intelligence gathering which forced the suspected miscreants to abandon the mace at a point under the flyover before the City Gate, where a patriotic passer-by saw it and alerted the Police.”

He, however, said discreet investigation into the incident is still ongoing to arrest and bring the perpetrators to justice.

He appreciated members of the public, most especially motorists within Abuja Metropolis for their support, cooperation and timely information during the stop and search operations for the recovery of the mace.

The National Assembly had on Wednesday given the Inspector General of Police 24hours to produce the mace that was stolen by hoodlums suspected to be sponsored by a suspended senator, Ovie Omo-Agege.

The hoodlums, after stealing the mace, ran out of the chamber with it causing pandemonium in the National Assembly.

The mace was, however, replaced with another and Senate proceedings continued.

The suspended senator has stated that he did not sponsor the hoodlums.

A lady who goes by the name Kawaii Child on instagram took to her IG page to post a photo of the dead baby boy she gave birth to.

She said the baby died in her tummy two days before she was due to give birth. She said she suddenly felt no movement inside her on that day and was feeling very different and rushed herself to the hospital where she was induced and she gave birth to a baby boy who was already dead.

She later explained that he died because his intestines were born on the outside of his body.

Many sympathised with the bereaved mother and sent condolence messages to her on her page while others were uncomfortable with the fact that she posted his dead photos on IG.

People became more agitated when she posted another photo of the dead child a few hours later, asking for money on GoFundMe, for expenses and funeral expenses for the child.

She was the wife of one president and mother of another, but Mrs Bush was also "the rock of a family dedicated to public service".

Former US first lady Barbara Bush has died aged 92, a family spokesperson has said.

Jim McGrath, spokesman for former president George HW Bush, said Mrs Bush had died on Tuesday.

Mrs Bush was the wife of the former president, who served from 1989 to 1993, and also the mother of George W Bush - who was president from 2001 to 2009.

The family's statement called her a "relentless proponent of family literacy".

George P. Bush

My grandmother's entire life was focused on others. For my grandfather, she was his top adviser and confidante. For her family, she was a steady, loving and guiding hand. And for her country, she was an inspiration and an example for all. 1/2

She was one of four children, born Barbara Pierce in the affluent New York suburb of Rye on 8 June 1925.

Her father was president of publishing company McCall's, but her mother died in a car accident in 1949.

She was 16 when she met George HW Bush at a school dance and the two married three years later in 1945, while he was on leave from wartime service.

She often said: "I married the first man I ever kissed", and together their 73-year marriage was the longest of any presidential couple.

Mrs Bush's plainspoken manner and lack of pretence at times made her more popular than her husband.

"What you see with me is what you get. I'm not running for president - George Bush is," she told the Republican convention in 1988.

She had five children and proved fiercely loyal to her husband.

Mr Bush, in turn, was fiercely loyal to her, describing himself as a "nervous wreck" when she had open-heart surgery in 2009.

After she regained consciousness, he battled back tears of relief, telling reporters about the "reunion of two people who love each other".

Barbara Bush was a remarkable woman. She had grit & grace, brains & beauty. She was fierce & feisty in support of her family & friends, her country & her causes. She showed us what an honest, vibrant, full life looks like. Hillary and I mourn her passing and bless her memory.

Despite being the wife of one president and mother of another, she drew the line at the prospect of a third Bush - Jeb - running for the White House in 2016, saying: "We've had enough Bushes."

In a tribute to his mother, Jeb Bush said: "I'm exceptionally privileged to be the son of George Bush and the exceptionally gracious, gregarious, fun, funny, loving, tough, smart, graceful woman who was the force of nature known as Barbara Bush."

Former president George W Bush said after his mother's death that the family's "souls are settled because we know hers was".

He described Mrs Bush as a "fabulous lady and a woman unlike any other who brought levity, love and literacy to millions".

She had "kept us on our toes and kept us laughing until the end", he said.

Barack Obama, who succeeded George W Bush as president, described Mrs Bush as "the rock of a family dedicated to public service".

He added: "We'll always be grateful to Mrs Bush for the generosity she showed to us throughout our time in the White House, but we're even more grateful for the way she lived her life - as a testament to the fact that public service is an important and noble calling; as an example of the humility and decency that reflects the very best of the American spirit."

Bill Clinton, who took on the role of president after George HW Bush, called Mrs Bush a "remarkable woman" who "had grit & grace, brains & beauty".

In a statement posted on current president Donald Trump's Twitter page, the White House said: "As a wife, mother grandmother, military spouse and former first lady, Mrs Bush was an advocate of the American family.



The Police Command in Nasarawa State has commenced investigations into the circumstances surrounding the alleged murder of one Joseph Achuku over his Bet9ja pool win.

DSP Idrisu Kennedy, the Command’s Public Relations Officer, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Lafia.

Idris told NAN that available information indicated that Achuku’s death might not be unconnected with the N7.4m he won in the Bet9ja lotto.

He said the corpse was recovered on Sunday along Federal University, Lafia, following distress calls from residents of the area.

He said the remains, which were deposited at Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital mortuary, was released to Achuku’s family on Tuesday for burial.

The PPRO said though no arrest has been made, the Command would ensure that the perpetrators are arrested and prosecuted.

A source from the family of the deceased, who preferred anonymity, told NAN that the alleged killers started hunting Achuku since he won the lottery.

He said that the yet-to-be identified suspects followed Achuku to the family house, attacked him and took away all the documents relating to the bet.

Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst reveals she has HIV after alleged blackmail attempt

The performer, who has had the virus for many years, says "coming out is better than being outed by a third party".

Former Eurovision Song Contest winner Conchita Wurst says she has been forced to reveal she is HIV positive after being blackmailed by a former friend.

In a post on Instagram the Austrian drag queen said she has been living with the virus for many years.

She said she had decided to come out with the news herself before her friend did.

Wurst, who won the singing contest in 2014 with the song Rise Like A Phoenix, wrote that she had received medical treatment and that she was feeling healthy and strong.

The bearded performer, the alter ego of Thomas Neuwirth, wrote that "coming out is better than being outed by a third party".


Eurovision’s @ConchitaWurst has posted on Instagram about living with HIV, following threats from a former partner to reveal her status.

This kind of threat is wholly shameful and underlines the abhorrent stigma that still surrounds HIV. 

She said in the post in her native German: "I have been hiv-positive for many years. this is actually irrelevant to the public, but an ex-boyfriend threatens me to go public with this private information, and I will not give anyone the right to frighten me and influence my life in the future."

She added that her reason for going public was "to encourage (others) and make a step against the stigmatisation of people who through their own behaviour or through no fault of their own were infected with HIV."

The post concludes: "to my fans: the information about my hiv status may be new to you - my status is not! I'm well and... I'm stronger, more motivated and liberated than ever. Thank you for your support!"

Ian Green, chief executive of the Terrence Higgins Trust, which campaigns on and provides services relating to HIV, said: "The decision to talk openly about your HIV status should be a personal one and not taken away or ever, ever used as a threat.

"Threatening to reveal someone's HIV status, under any circumstances, is entirely wrong. What other health condition would be used as blackmail against someone? And we know this isn't something which only happens to those in the public eye.

"Despite all the medical advances we've made in the fight against HIV, in treatment and in testing, Conchita's Instagram post highlights how much more we have to do to tackle the abhorrent stigma which still surrounds the virus.

"We applaud Conchita for handling this with such dignity and including in her post that people living with HIV who are on effective treatment, like her, can't pass the virus on."
