Justin Bieber arrested for DUI, drag racing and resisting arrest

Image
19 year old teen sensation Justin Bieber was this morning arrested for drinking under the influence, drag racing in Miami beach and resisting arrest, TMZ reports.
"Law enforcement tells us ... Bieber was busted in Miami Beach and it didn't end with DUI ... he was also busted for resisting arrest without violence, drag racing and driving on an expired license.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... they believe Justin was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol.
We're told the resisting arrest charge stems from Bieber refusing to take his hands out of his pockets when ordered to do so by cops.
Bieber is now in custody and is at the police department where he is being tested -- presumably to more precisely measure his blood alcohol level. Our law enforcement sources say Justin was given a field sobriety test at the scene ... and failed. His next stop will be jail, where he will be booked and processed and bail will be set.

We're told Bieber had just left a club and …

Image
The presidency has issued a query to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, demanding an explanation for some of the donations the CBN has made under his watch to some universities and organisations.A top presidency official, who sought not to be named, confided in THISDAY yesterday that the federal government was forced to issue the query as a result of its concern over Sanusi's activities, which have portrayed him as working to undermine the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan.According to him, Sanusi has engaged in what he described as unprecedented politicisation of his office as well as serial infractions of regulations governing the operations of the central bank.He said the presidency was worried by the way and manner Sanusi had been donating to communities and institutions in the name of the central bank without adherence to due process and regard for the multi-cultural diversities of the Nigerian nation.The CBN governor was accu…

SAME S€X SAGA: Sharia Commission Fails To Provide Evidence Against Alleged Homosexuals

Image
The Bauchi State Sharia Commission in recent times has accused several persons of homosexuality in the State. The commission usually relies on the testimony of eye witnesses to secure a conviction before Sharia court.

However, yesterday, when the Commission brought six people before the Upper Sharia court for trial, the supposed witnesses were not able to say they saw the accused persons committing the act.

The Judge, Justice El-Yaqub Aliyu, quoting from the Hadith said the suspects remained innocent until proper evidence could be established against them.

The case was adjourned until January 27th.

In a related development, another seven suspects accused of homosexuality in the same court were almost lynched by an angry mob as they were being led back to the Prisons service bus to be conveyed back to the Prison.

The suspects, Ibrahim Marafa, Shehu Adamu, Yusuf Adamu, Aliyu Dalhatu, Abdulmalik Tanko, Usman Sabo and Hazif Sabo Abubakar, were arraigned by the state Shariah Commission, fo…

Nigeria's Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has expressed dissatisfaction with the Federal Government's proposal to the union.

ASUP President Chibuzor Asomugha told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the union would discuss it in two weeks' time at the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting.

Asomugha said that the union's position on the government's proposal would be known after its NEC meeting at a yet to be determined venue.

"We are not satisfied with what the government is proposing, in fact, we did not accept it at the meeting held with the minister on Tuesday in Abuja.

"Since that is what it can offer, we will convey it to our NEC, to decide the next action. We cannot say when we will suspend the strike until after the NEC meeting.

"I cannot say when, but as soon as the NEC meet, maybe in the next two weeks,'' the ASUP president said.

The Supervising Minister for Education, Mr Nyeson Wike, on Tuesday said the gov…
