I killed my mother because she refused to give me ‘disappearance’ charm – Suspect

An 18-year-old man, Agugu Adau, has allegedly killed his mother for refusing to give him a “disappearing” charm he claimed was his inheritance from his late herbalist father.
A family source told the News Agency of Nigeria that Agugu committed the crime at his Kisaghyip village farm in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau.
The source said that Agugu, after killing his mother, removed N20,000 from her blood-sucked clothes and used it to buy a mobile phone, a shirt and a pair of slippers.
Tyopev Terna, spokesman of the Plateau Police Command, confirmed that the suspect was being held, but declined further comments.
“Investigation is ongoing. The details are not ready. Please understand with us and be patient,” he told NAN on phone.

‎JUST IN: Justin Gatlin dethrones Usain Bolt as World Champion

Justin Gatlin is the new world champion in the 100m event as he emerged tops in Saturday’s final at the ongoing IAAF World Championships.

The American sprinter who narrowly lost to Bolt at the Olympics in Rio got his pound of flesh in London as he posted a winning time of 9.92secs.
Gatlin is emerging as the world champion again after he last made that feat in 2005.
The 35-year old American has been banned twice for drugs and he was never the fans’ favourite in Saturday’s race.
Another American Christian Coleman came second in a time of 9.94secs while Bolt finished in third place with 9.95secs. Despite his third-place finish, Usain Bolt got more applause from the crowd as they celebrate the 30-year old Jamaican who is now bowing out of a sport that brought him so much fame and wealth.

What Kano Governor, Ganduje told 19 Igbo traditional rulers about October 1 quit notice

Governor of Kano State, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, on Saturday stated that Igbos in Kano and other parts of the North don’t need to leave as a result of the recent quit notice issued by Arewa Youths.
Ganduje made this clear this during a meeting with the Igbo Delegates Assembly (IDA) and Igbo Traditional rulers in the 19 northern states, led by IDA President-General, Chief Chi Nwogu, at the Government House in Kano.
According to the Governor, “even if you want to go on your own, we will not allow you to leave.
“There is a difference between I will not go and there is no where I can go. You don’t have anywhere to go, this place is your home.
“Those advocating ethnic agitation from the East are not speaking for all Igbos. Those of us, who as youth witnessed the Civil war, will never advocate secession,” he stated.
Ganduje said the Northern youths who issued quit notice to Igbos in the region, had also been called to order by elders, including governors and the Sultan of Sokoto.
