EXCLUSIVE: How Justice Uwais’ son who claims to hate Boko Haram joined ISIS jihadists

Ibrahim Uwais gave his parents and everyone around him the impression that he hates Boko Haram because of the “damage” they are doing to Islam — but he has now gone to Syria apparently to join the Islamic State militants. 
His distraught father, Mohammed Uwais (pictured) — who served as the chief justice of Nigeria from 1995 to 2006 — was still trying to come to terms with the news when he suffered a suspected armed robbery attack last weekend, although he was not hurt. Ibrahim, described as a 41-year-old “reserved and committed Muslim”, has two wives and four children, TheCable learnt. 
His elder wife was the head of a private school in Abuja while the younger worked with the Debt Management Office (DMO). When he took the decision to go to Syria to team up with the “jihadists” of the Islamic State, he reportedly called his wives aside and told them they were free to return to their parents. 
“But both of them said they would go with him,” a source in the know of the development told The…

4 political parties want Jega fired; threaten to boycott elections over card readers

Four Nigerian political parties have threatened to pull out of the March 28 and April 11 elections if the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, refuses to suspend the use of card readers. The parties also called on the chairman of INEC, Attahiru Jega, to proceed on terminal leave, accusing him of exhibiting unprofessionalism and poor judgement. “Since Prof Attahiru Jega has shown lack of professionalism and good judgment in his actions so far in the conduct of the 2015 elections and since he has about three months to the end of his tenure as INEC Chairman, we the stakeholders urge him to quietly consider proceeding on terminal leave so that a more competent person can handle the current election process,” the parties said at a press conference Wednesday. The parties warned that the use of card readers, which INEC says will help check voting fraud, will negatively affect the credibility of the elections.

Lagos PDP Governorship candidate, Jimi Agbaje, does not know anything about the state. - Fashola

Obviously there's no love lost here. During the inauguration of the Maidan-Aina-Agiliti network of roads and bridge in the Kosofe LGA of Lagos yesterday, Lagos state governor Babatunde Fashola, has said the governorship candidate of the PDP, Jimi Agbaje, does not know anything about the state.

Fashola described the Maidan-Aina-Agiliti roads as evidence of slum regeneration and urban renewal, adding that whenever he listened to the candidate of the main opposition party saying his administration had not regenerated the slums, he thought it was a demonstration that he does not know anything about Lagos, Punch reports... "When I hear the pretender to my office who is trapped under the umbrella, I feel so sorry for him because it is becoming more obvious that he does not know Lagos. Because if he knows a place like Maidan- Agiliti, he would not have made such a statement. But as I have said, his knowledge of Lagos is limited to his being driven from his home to the airport.” Fashol…

Solange Knowles already having marriage problems?

If you live in Hollywood and you don't want people speculating about the state of your marriage, then don't go out without your wedding ring. A day after Solange was spotted out without hers, 'sources' told MTO (I'm sure some of you wonder why I bother with the site - it's hilarious) that Solange & her new husband Alan Ferguson are having marital problems. A reliable entertainment insider explained;  Solange and Alan don't even live together, he lives in New Orleans and she lives in LA. Alan is crazy in love with her, but I don't think Solange ever really felt the same way. It's sad, but I hope they can pull their marriage back together. We're all rooting for them since seeing those wedding pics.Well it doesn't look good. Solange was out yesterday without her ring on.

Karrueche had no idea Chris Brown fathered a child...

Karrueche was in the dark about Chris Brown's baby..She heard the baby news just moments before TMZ broke the story. 
"We're told Tran had absolutely no idea her boyfriend was a daddy -- much less a daddy with a baby mama with whom SHE partied. Our sources say Karrueche and Brown had a blowout fight a week ago and weren't speaking, but he tried calling her after the story broke ... she did not pick up.
DNA tests performed in the last week show conclusively ... Brown is the father of a 9-month-old baby with a former model named Nia. We're told he and Nia aren't romantic but they get along fine, and Chris has made some sort of financial arrangement with her.
As for Karrueche ... we're told she's actually relieved, because it now gives her a clean, permanent out.."
Oh, baby.
