Tuesday, March 31
Former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, have congratulated the Presidential candidate of the All progressives congress Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd,,) on his victory in the presidential poll.
And while Obasanjo charged Buhari to fight corruption and carry out reforms in different sectors, IBB said President Goodluck Jonathan lost to Buhari because Jonathan failed to meet the yearnings and aspiration of Nigeria’s citizens.
Obasanjo's congratulatory message which was made available to reporters at Abeokuta on Tuesday noted that so much harm had already been done to many national institutions, including the military, and however, advised him to be magnanimous in victory. He said:
A sex attacker who repeatedly raped a 13-year-old was jailed for 18 years today.
According to DailyMail, 42-year-old Ghanaian Alex Baah and also a father-of-three, paid the girl £2 after each assault, raped her at an address near Croydon and sent her perverted text messages.
The victim finally complained to police in August 2013 when she was aged 15. Jobless Baah denied touching the girl and claimed she had planted evidence and stole his mobile to send the messages. But the jury convicted him of five counts of rape committed between 2010 and 2013.
Judge Simon Farrell told the father-of-three his behaviour was ‘wicked'. He said:
This is the heartbreaking moment a four-year-old Syrian girl 'surrendered' when a photographer pointed his camera at her... and she assumed it was a gun. Photo was taken at the Atmen refugee camp on Syria's border with Turkey last December and shows the young girl frozen in fear with her arms raised and her lips tightly pursed.
The child has been identified as Adi Hudea, according to DailyMail. Her father died in the 2012
