Simeone Tells Hobbling Atletico To ‘Resist’ In La Liga Title Push

Atletico Madrid moved back to the top of La Liga on Sunday after a 1-1 draw against Real Betis opened a one-point lead over city rivals Real.

Imo Attack: Osinbajo Preaches Peace, Urge People To Resist Any Violence

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Our dear city of Owerri had its peace and tranquillity shattered by heavily armed hoodlums who blasted open the doors of the correctional facility, facilitating the escape of well over 1,000 inmates; many of whom were dangerous criminals. They also attacked the police headquarters at “Shell Camp” burning several vehicles and even attempting to overtake the police armoury, if not for the effective resistance of the police. An attack on the critical institutions of law enforcement, police stations and prisons is an attack on the safety, security and well being of the citizens. It is not merely an attack on law and order. It is a mindless attack on the people and the way of life of the people. When you attack police stations and free dangerous...
