Before you read this, a source at the Nigerian Presidency has denied this story. But all the same, local media reports have quoted the Minister of Youth Development, Mr. Boni Haruna, on Thursday as saying that President Goodluck Jonathan has announced amnesty for members of the Boko Haram sect as parts of his administration’s youths-friendly programmes and policies.
Haruna reportedly disclosed this at a special event tagged “A day with young leaders of Nigeria” to mark the nation’s Democracy Day in Abuja. The minister said:
“President Goodluck Jonathan has also declared amnesty for members of the Boko
On TIME’s cover this week is an unlikely icon: Hollywood actress Laverne Cox who was born a man and according to her, was bullied and harassed for appearing feminine while growing up. Eventually, Laverne came out as transgender while living in New York City and she's now a star on the Netflix drama Orange Is the New Black.
Laverne has emerged as a public leader of the trans movement, using her increasingly prominent perch to make the case for equal rights for transgenders. Continue after the cut to see more pictures I found of her.

Two-year-old Farida, who was Dr. Lame’s daughter, and her 1-year-old cousin Isah Abubakar Tahir died after being trapped for over an hour playing in one of the cars parked in the house.

“The house driver came back around 1.30pm and when the children saw him while they were playing in the compound pleaded with him to take them out for a drive. The driver, who wanted to put them off, told them not to worry and should let him pray and come
Police in India are hunting a gang of men who raped and killed two teenage girls, before hanging their bodies from a tree. The horrendous attack, in the village of Karta in the Uttar Pradesh region, is said to have happened on Tuesday night after the two cousins, aged 14 and 15, went missing from their homes.
NDTV reports the girls - from the low-caste Dalit community previously known as the "untouchables" - disappeared after stepping out to go to toilet in the bush as they had none at home, prompting their families to search through the night. Their bodies were found at dawn, hanging from
Staying in a hotel made entirely of salt - from the walls to the beds - is definitely bound to leave you thirsty. Guys, check out the Palacio de Sal hotel which was built from one million blocks of salt over a two-year period and sits on the world's largest salt flat, the Salar de Uyuni.
Everything from the walls and floors to the beds and tables have been carved out of salt taken from the Salar de Uyuni salt flat. Even the quirky retreat's swimming pool, tables and chairs in the dining room and nine-hole golf course are made from sodium chloride.
Creator Don Juan Quesada dreamt up the idea of the world's first salt hotel as it was the most
Is Pastor Chris & Anita Oyakhilome's Marriage in Trouble? Concerned Church Members Create Facebook Page Insinuating it is!
There seems to be a very big storm brewing within Christ Embassy Church. Earlier on in January this year, there was news that popular man of God, who also serves as the President of Believers' Love World Incorporated aka Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has relocated to Johannesburg in South Africa. While his wife is based in the UK.
You know they are both servants of God and it would be counter-productive for them to stay in one country as this would not help the spread of the gospel. That was why they agreed to stay in different countries so that they could get across to as many people as possible in their different locations and the feedback has been great”.
But according to posts made on a new Facebook page created by some concerned Christ Embassy members, there's more to Pastors Chris & Anita's separation and living in 2 countries!
They say Pastor Chris, recently, has never been never spotted with his wife by his side - not during ministry conferences, not during conferences by other ministers and NEVER during the monthly communion service transmitted live from a TV studio. Meanwhile other high ranking women in the ministry close to Pst. Chris always travel with him and are seen around him. That Rev Anita has not been seen in church since January 2014 and Pst. Chris does not find it fit to address his congregation who support him with so much money.
