Fuel Crisis: ​​Okonjo-Iweala Accuses Oil Marketers of Blackmail

The Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, on Saturday accused petroleum products marketers of blackmail​ by masterminding the current fuel scarcity that has threatened to ground the economy.
The Minister, who was speaking in Abuja, said it was shocking that barely a week after she reached an agreement over ​​N200 billion ​fuel ​claims​,​ the marketers reneged and failed to continue selling fuel to consumers.

Mrs​.​ Okonjo-Iweala​,​ who spoke of efforts the government was making to ensure that the marketers’ claims were paid, said apart from the N154 billion paid a fortnight ago, about N31 billion and N350 billion were paid to the marketers previously.

She said it was curious that despite these efforts by ​the ​government in a year it was going through difficult times​,​ the​ marketers ​were showing so much bad faith.

​The minister said after the N154 billion was paid and the marketers came up with ​a new​ request of

#ShortStoryNight!!! Who Killed Annabel? Episode 1

story written by Carina Jacobs

  My name is Ross Johnson. I'm a detective. Myself and my partner of
two years detective Alero Martins has been assigned to solve the
sudden death of a twenty eight years old lady who was shot twice at
the back of her head at a bushy environment. The victim's bag was found by her

side at the crime scene where her body layed down on the ground
lifeless. Comestics, international passport, an iPhone 5 and two
thousand dollars were found inside it. She must have been a rich woman
to have such an amount of money with her. I thought.

  "This doesn't look like a robbery, her valuables are still intact."
Alero said. "This is murder."
   I agreed with her. She was right.

UPDATE: Buruji Kashamu Placed under House Arrest

NDLEA operatives who stormed the Lekki home of Prince Buruji Kashamu, will wait till Monday, to know whether they could carry away their prey.
