Tragic last photos of 7yr old Shanay, running barefoot to a shop looking for water - just hours before she was killed by her aunt

Desperate and thirsty, 7 year old Shanay Walker was captured on CCTV cameras asking a shopkeeper for something to drink just hours before she was found dead at her home. The footage shows her running barefoot into a corner shop the night before her frail bruised body was discovered at the home of her aunt and grandmother.
The child was subjected to months of violent punishment by her 'strict' churchgoing aunt and suffered a 'sustained, vicious and brutal beating' before she died, a jury heard. 

Her aunt, Kay-Ann Morris, 24, and grandmother Juanila Smikle, 54, were today June 5th sentenced to eight years and four years in jail, respectively, after being found guilty of cruelty.

Morris was cleared of murder after the trial at Nottingham Crown Court.  In the 46-second security clip, Shanay is seen wandering down the aisles in her pyjamas before stopping to speak to the shopkeeper behind the counter shortly before 9pm on 30 July last year.
The following day, her body, covered w…

Police called after Chris Brown & Karrueche have a confrontation

Chris Brown's obsession with Karrueche will probably land him in hot soup. According to reports, Karreuche and her friend Christina Milian, were out at a club in LA and Chris Brown showed up at the club and sat right next to Karrueche's table which he'd booked, knowing where the girls will be sitting. This didn't go down well with Kae and as she left, drama ensued.

Read TMZ's report below..
An attempted reunion with Karrueche Tran last night did not end well -- with the singer banging on KT's front door after she kicked him out of her SUV. We're told the drama started inside Playhouse nightclub ... when Chris got the V.I.P. table next to the one Karrueche was at. It seemed she was there because her BFF Christina Milian was the host for the night ... something Chris clearly knew. We're told KT was pissed and left the club ... and Brown followed ... eventually weaseling his way into her SUV.
Apparently Chris performed a magic show inside -- because he and Ka…

Fuel scarcity to end on or before June 13 - Oil Marketers

Nigerian Oil marketers say the lingering fuel scarcity nationwide will come to an end on or before the 13th of this month. Addressing newsmen after a meeting with the federal government today, the oil marketers said the traffic gridlock at the Oshodi-Apapa express is largely responsible for the scarcity as over 3000 tankers are towing to collect fuel from the Lagos depot to distribute to other parts of the country.
They say they will be working with the Lagos state government to effectively manage the traffic so tanker drivers can quickly pick up fuel for distribution.

Why Buhari Is Yet To Appoint Senior Officials Into His Administration

Exactly one week? after he was sworn in as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to appoint senior officials who will form the core of his government.

While Nigerians anxiously await this appointment, sources traced the delay to the late presentation of the hand over not by the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
According to Vanguard report, the former president is all to blame for the delay.
The report reads:
“A senior associate of the president yesterday traced the delay in the announcement of the president’s senior aides to the delay in the transmission of the handover notes by the Jonathan officials to the transition team constituted by Buhari ahead of his inauguration.
“All we have been doing since Friday is poring over these notes. This is because you need to know the position of things before you delegate the appropriate personnel to any establishment of government,” a source privy to the ongoing developments told…

Tompolo Denies N1.5bn Monthly Payment Claim

Ex-Niger Delta warlord, Tompolo, has denied claims made by Dr. Ahmed Ramalan that he was paid the sum of N1.5 billion monthly by the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), to protect Nigeria’s maritime zones.

Dr Ramalan who was the former chairman of NIMASA had in a report in the Leadership newspaper of Wednesday June 3, 2015, accused Tompolo of not doing enough to stop oil theft in Nigeria’s maritime areas despite the huge sums of money paid to the ex-militant leader.
Tompolo has however described these claims by Dr Ramalan as wild, unsubstantiated allegations born out of malice.
Speaking through Comrade Paul Bebenimibo, his spokes person, he accused Dr Ramalan of merely seeking undue attention.
He added that the allegations leveled against him was a needlessly effort to rubbish his name and fuel a dispute between him and the new government of President Muhammadu Buhari that is barely one week in office.

“I make bold to say Ramalan who claims to be the pioneer c…

#CaitlynJenner is worth hundreds of millions in endorsement

According to new reports, Caitlyn Jenner is five times more valuable than Bruce Jenner.

From TMZ
Caitlyn Jenner is a hotter commodity than Bruce Jenner ever was ... especially on the speaking circuit.
Sources who worked for years on booking speaking gigs for Bruce tell TMZ, Caitlyn is worth 5 times what Bruce commanded. Our sources say Bruce used to get $25,000 a pop for motivational speaking ... and they say Caitlyn can pull well over $100k. There's a big reason Caitlyn is a hotter commodity ... social media. Bruce hated social media and wouldn't play ball. A lot of the companies that hire motivational speakers are big into social, and Caitlyn is fully on board and breaking records. Another obvious reason for the bump ... Caitlyn has quite the story to tell.
