Werner Gives Chelsea Vital Win at 10-man West Ham

Timo Werner's first-half strike helped strengthen Chelsea's grip on the top four with a 1-0 win at West Ham, who saw Fabian Balbuena controversially sent off after a VAR intervention. Chelsea's winner came just before half-time through Werner's first Premier League goal since mid-February, finishing off at close range from Ben Chilwell's low cross (43). The game opened up in the second half as Werner missed a fine chance to double his tally, turning wide at close range from a rebound, and West Ham were reduced to 10 men with a baffling dismissal as Balbuena's studs caught Chilwell's calf after following through with a clearance. After referee Chris Kavanagh consulted the pitchside monitor to view the incident, which seemed an unavoidable action from the West Ha...

The former Chief Security Officer (CSO) to former head of state, Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha in defence of his former boss has stated that the Abacha administration consulted Emirs, Chiefs and VIPs before moving billions of naira now referred to as “Abacha loot” overseas. Al-Mustapha who was speaking during a program aired on BBC Hausa, monitored by Vanguard said former head of state, General Sani Abacha made such move because “there was a period Nigeria was to be sanctioned”, so there was a need to “keep money overseas so that Nigeria and Nigerians would not suffer, when the sanction was imposed on the country.” “We gathered Emirs and Chiefs from the South and from the North, together with VIPs of that time, those in government and those not in government.” He said it was a...

Coronavirus: MURIC Cautions Mosques against Reopening

Islamic human rights organization, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has cautioned Islamic authorities in Nigeria against the reopening of mosques, amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

However, Akintola said such steps have to be taken with caution. He said; “There are reports that some state governments have given the green light for the opening of mosques. This may not be wise enough.” “We must be on the...

Senate Presidency: I Consulted With Buhari, Tinubu Before Contesting – Ndume

Senator Ali Ndume of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has insisted that he would challenge the decision of the party in choosing Ahmad Lawan to be the next Senate President. Ndume who addressed journalists in Abuja claimed that he had received an endorsement from President Muhammadu Buhari and National Leader, Bola Tinubu, to become the next leader of the ninth Senate. His reaction is coming shortly after the APC leadership endorsed Ahmad Lawan to be the next Senate president. “The Senate should be what it is supposed to be, an institution that clearly, by the constitution is supposed to be independent. What I feel pained most about is that even in your own community, you do not impose a leader on children around your compound; they normally have a natural way of choosing a lead...
