FULANI WAR DRUMBEATS IN NIGERIA – A CLEAR INVITATION FOR DISINTEGRATION

  As the rascality and untamed decimation spree of the monstrous Fulani killer herdsmen (terrorists) assumes a disastrous dimension in Nigeria, it becomes indisputably necessary for all inhabitants to wholesomely support the call of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, for the total dissolution and disintegration of Nigeria. A common Igbo proverb says: “if…

LONDON — Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, escaped tough questioning during congressional testimony this month in part because American lawmakers weren’t well versed about how the social network functions. On Thursday, one of his deputies faced a decidedly sharper inquisition from a panel in Britain.
The dueling experiences highlight the different approaches taken on both sides of the Atlantic toward oversight of personal data and the social media giants who hold it. While the United States has largely eschewed regulating companies li..

10 South Sudan Aid Workers Are Abducted, U.N. Says

10 South Sudan Aid Workers Are Abducted, U.N. Says
Ten relief workers traveling in South Sudan have been abducted by an armed group, the United Nations said Thursday. The kidnapping underscores the risks to humanitarian aid providers in the war-torn African country.
A statement from the United Nations said the aid workers, all from South Sudan, disappeared on Wednesday during a trip through the southern part of the country. The statement gave no details on the armed group that seized them or its demands.
This is the third time in six months that a group of aid workers has been held by militants in South Sudan, the world’s youngest country. At least 98 aid workers have been killed in South Sudan since it devolved into civil war in 2013, just two years after it was founded. The majority of the aid workers killed since the conflict began are South Sudanese.
The United Nations statement called for the release of the workers “without condition so that their work can continue.”
