Instagram Stories Now Allows Multiple Picture And Video Uploads At Once

Instagram will now let users upload multiple pictures and videos to their Stories at once. When uploading media, you’ll now see an icon at the top right corner of your screen and tapping it will allow you to select up to ten photos or videos at a time.
They’ll upload in the order in which you select them and you can edit each one individually. Additionally, when sharing a photo, even if you’re not in the area where you took it, Instagram’s location sticker will suggest places near the spot where you snapped the photo.
Recently, Instagram also introduced the capability to take a portrait-like photo with a new Focus mode and began testing its version of Snapchat’s Snapcodes that let users follow someone else by scanning a custom tag rather than inputting their info.
The new bulk upload feature is rolling out now to Android users now. It will launch on iOS in the coming weeks.

President Buhari Writes Senate For Approval To Buy Helicopters From US

The Nigerian Senate has read a letter from President Muhammadu Buhari seeking approval to purchase six Tucano helicopters worth $496,374,470 (151, 394, 421, 035 Naira) from the US.
According to the president, the helicopters are meant to support the drive to improve the security of the nation.
Meanwhile, members of the House of Representatives did not mince words on Tuesday when they said President Muhammadu Buhari committed an “impeachable offence” by authorising the purchase of $462million jets for the military without appropriation by the National Assembly.
The lawmakers became angry as soon as the Speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, read a letter from Buhari, informing the House that the expenditure was done in “anticipation of approval” by the National Assembly.
They noted that the letter was a “mere afterthought”, as the expenditure had been done already

Real Madrid Will Win Champions League Again – Mutiu Adepoju

The former Los Blancos star has urged Zinedine Zidane’s men not to take any unnecessary risks in the first leg against Bayern Munich.
Nigeria football great Mutiu Adepoju has stressed that Real Madrid cannot afford to make the mistakes they made against Juventus in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich.
Zinedine Zidane’s men looked set to breeze into the last four after a resounding 3-0 first leg victory against the Old Lady in Turin.
However, the Spanish club went to pieces in the return leg, allowing Massimiliano Allegri’s team to score three times to set up a surprisingly tense finale.
Madrid scored a late Cristiano Ronaldo penalty to progress, but the former Real Madrid midfielder acknowledged that the 12-time European champions must work to avoid a repeat of that tortuous fixture, when they face Jupp Heynckes’ side at the Allianz Arena.
“My expectation is to see Real Madrid beat Bayern Munich to get to the final where they will emerge as champions for the 13th time,” Adepoju told Goal.
“However, they should take the lessons learnt against Juventus very seriously. No matter how many goals they have scored, the game is not over until the referee blows his final whistle.
“No one would have expected the Italians to score three goals at the Santiago Bernabeu, but they did that and Madrid were almost punished for it. This is football where everything is very possible and [Zinedine] Zidane’s men must have this in mind.
“Knowing the quality in the Bayern Munich squad and the experience of their manager, the game will not be an easy one in Munich as the hosts will come out to get a respectable scoreline going into the final.”
Roma or Liverpool await the victor of the tie in the final and both sides will be desperate to lay down a marker in the first leg, with the tie set to be concluded next week in Madrid

“Why There Is No Constant Power Supply In Nigeria” – Federal Government Reveals

The Federal Government has lamented that its vast investment in the power sector is not translating into improved power supply in the country because the power distributing companies, DISCOs, have no capacity for effective distribution of electricity generated by transmission companies.
Speaking through the Head of Service of the Federation , HoS, Mrs Winifred Oyo Ita, yesterday in Calabar, Cross River State, while commissioning the 60 MVA, 132/33 Power Transformer, the government claimed the power distributing companies were rather blaming the government for the poor power supply in the country.
According to her:-
“There is huge investment in the power sector all over the country but so far as the Power Distribution Companies are not investing to improve their distribution capacity such that they are able to send out this power to the end users, Nigerians will not appreciate the large volume of money being invested in power generation- that is the truth.
“We are appealing to them to go back to the drawing board and find out if they don’t have the financial power or technical knowhow, let them be sincere and come out and say so and stop frustrating Nigerians and painting Federal Government in bad light.”
She said the commissioning of the power transformer was in line with the policy of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration on Incremental Power Supply through Transmission Rehabilitation and Expansion Programme to strengthen grid and infrastructure for enhanced wheeling capacity.

Femi Falana Calls On National Assembly To Probe President Buhari

Foremost human right lawyer, Femi Falana, has called on the National Assembly to probe the unauthorised withdrawal made by President Muhammadu Buhari from the Excess Crude Account (ECA).
Reacting to the controversey surrounding the withdrawal of $496million to pay for Tucano aircrafts in the United States, Falana said the days of anticipatory approvals should be over in the country.
According to him:-
“Since 1999, anticipated approvals have been the order of the day.
“Presidents (Olusegun) Obasanjo, (Umaru) Yar’Adua and (Goodluck) Jonathan were alleged to have spent N1.5trillion without parliamentary approval. We thought that that era had gone for good.
“The National Assembly should investigate the withdrawal with a view to stopping the executive”.
A letter dated April 13 and transmitted to the National Assembly, shows that Buhari had already given anticipatory approval for the withdrawal of $496,374,470 (N151,394,421,355) from the ECA, for the purchase of the aircraft and was only seeking the inclusion of same in the 2018 Appropriation Bill that the National Assembly is currently finalising.

“I Had Sex With 18 Men In One Month Because My Husband Does Not Last In Bed” – Woman Confesses

A 42-year-old housewife, Mrs Ifeyinwa Lofe had in the early hours of Monday burst into confession at Umuagu Asaba shrine, saying she had sexual intercourse with 18 men under one month, and in her matrimonial home.
Her sudden outburst which attracted crowd of persons to the scene left the elders of the Asaba community in shock, especially as the housewife was well known within the area to be hardworking and unsuspecting petty trader.
It was gathered that the housewife, a native of Ashama community in Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State had been married to her kinsman in the past six years with two children. But this was not to be following her detectable beauty which often attracts men to her shop where she sells biscuit and others.
Sources said the woman’s husband had severally warned her against unsuspecting men intruders who hide under the guise of patronize her, including threatening to expose any illicit affairs with her via fetish charms.
Investigation revealed that rather than heeding to the threats handed down to her by her husband, the housewife calls it a bluff with haughty manners and allegedly invited her sexual patrons to her matrimonial bed whenever her husband resumes duty as security officer at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Asaba during night fall.
Those in the know said that one of her patrons Francis Chukwuemeka before his sudden death, was one of the children of a prominent newspapers distribution, and a retired banker who also is a well know elder of Umuagu community.
While the struggle for the housewife lasts, the young man who was buried at the weekend in the early hours, was said to have allegedly hoodwinked the housewife with huge sums of money.
At the shrine, the housewife in an open confession said: I have had sex with 18 men in Asaba, and they gave me N1.5 million all together. I got so much in love with them because they hit me very hard sexually, please forgive me, my husband does not last in bed, and I needed it most for my upkeep hence I agreed for the men”.
Meanwhile, the husband Fredrick Lofe in a swift reaction told Daily POST, “I promised to kill all the 18 men because I warned my wife to stay away from the act when I got wind of it. I consulted a charm specialist who will kill all of them if they refused to own up”, three of the men sleeping with my wife have died and many will die unless they confess to their sins.”
An elder in the area, Ogbueshi Anthony Molokwu said, “the three persons died of swollen penis because they refused to confess their sins,” adding that anyone who commits a taboo will pay dearly for it.
As at the time of this report, elders of the community have banished the 15 other men until they confess to their sin while palpable fear of the unknown has taken over the community.

I can not be silenced, says Dino Melaye as Police, DSS lay siege to his residence

Police and men of Department of State Services, DSS, yesterday, laid siege to Maitama residence of the Chairman, Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Senator Dino Melaye (APC, Kogi West).
Senator Dino Meleye : Policemen barricaded Senator Dino Meleye’s House at Maitama
Speaking with Vanguard on telephone when the security agents surrounded his 11, Sangha Street, off Mississippi, Maitama,  Senator Melaye  said: “The Police have surrounded  my house.”
Melaye had earlier tweeted about the incident, saying over 30 armed security personnel had surrounded his residence.
On the street on which he house is situated, yesterday, there was no vehicular movement from the beginning and end of the road for all passers- by and other residents of the area as the place was  condoned off, just as the mobile police men blocked both sides of the road with pick-up vans, buses and other cars.
The policemen were led to the residence by an Assistant Commissioner of Police, John, who despite pressure from journalists refused to give reasons for the action  only said the instruction was from above.

Stop Senators from entering Melaye’s residence
They prevented Senator Melaye’s colleagues who trooped to the place to sympathise with him from entering into Melaye’s house, even when they spoke with the leader of the police team.
Some Senators who were at the place, include Biodun Olujimi (PDP, Ekiti South), Philip Adudu (PDP, FCT), Rafiu Ibrahim (APC, Kwara South), Isa Hamman Misau (APC, Bauchi Central) and Atai Aidoko (PDP, Kogi East).
Also at the place, but not allowed to see Melaye was a former Senator, Mohammed Ohiare (Kogi Central).
The number of the police was increased to more than 10 at about 4p.m., this time, Mobile Police men who came in a police van with registration number NPF 3637 D and donated by CBN and body of Banks CEOs, inscribed on both sides of the van.
Also, protesters from Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, camp, Kuchigoro, Airport Road, Abuja, stormed Senator Melaye’s residence  where they vowed not to allow the Police to arrest him, whom they described as their benefactor who has been assisting them.
The arrest
Melaye was earlier, yesterday, arrested by the Police at the International Wing of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport.
Senator Dino Melaye
He was picked up at the airport on his way to Morocco for an official engagement sponsored by the Federal Government after checking in.
Melaye had written  his Facebook account in the morning, saying: “I have just been arrested at the International Wing of Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport on my way to Morocco for an official engagement sponsored by the Federal Government after checking in.”
Meanwhile,  Melaye, who was arrested by Immigration officials, escaped moves by the police to secure his arrest.
It was gathered that Melaye was picked up and detained by Immigration officials at the airport, following a directive to that effect by the Nigeria Police.
Vanguard also gathered that the Immigration officials told Melaye that the Police had written the service requesting his arrest as he was not allowed to travel out of the country since his name was on the watchlist.
At this point, the lawmaker was said to have challenged the officials demanding to know at what point his name was published as a wanted person on INTERPOL’s watchlist.
Unable to provide answers to Melaye’s question, the Immigration officials, nevertheless, kept Melaye in detention awaiting the arrival of the police that gave the directive for his arrest.

But in between the time of Melaye’s arrest and detention by Immigration officials, the attention of INTERPOL’s Commissioner of Police was sought in a bid to solicit his immediate intervention, before the police chief could arrive at the international airport, a vehicle was already on standby and whisked the lawmaker away to an unknown destination, which apparently was his house where the police later surrounded.
Briefing journalists, yesterday, in front of Melaye’s residence, Executive Director, Citizens Advocacy for Social and Economic Rights, CASER, Frank Tiete, who condemned in very strong terms, the action of the police, said the police carried out the action without appropriate legal instrument.

President Buhari Withdraws $462million From Excess Crude Account Without National Assembly Approval

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the withdrawal $462 million from the Excess Crude Account (ECA) to the United States for the procurement of 12 Super Tucano aircraft, without a prior approval of the National Assembly, This Day newspaper has reported.
A new letter by the president to the National Assembly, says the U.S. government had given a payment deadline for the aircraft purchase, hence, the need for the hasty approval and payment.

Mr Buhari transmitted the letter to the National Assembly leadership on April 13 and it was received in the Office of the Speaker of the House of Representatives on April 17.
The letter shows that Mr Buhari had already given anticipatory approval for the withdrawal of $496,374,470 (N151 394, 421, 355) from the ECA for the purchase of the aircraft and was only seeking the inclusion of same in the 2018 Appropriation Bill that the National Assembly is currently finalising.
The date on the letter indicated that the President had given approval for the withdrawal of the cash and paid before a public announcement of the approval, ThisDay reports.
The Offices of the senate president, Bukola Saraki, and the speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, did not respond to requests for comment Monday.
According to ThisDay, Mr Buhari’s letter reads, “I wish to draw the attention of the House of Representatives to the ongoing security emergencies in the country. These challenges were discussed with the state governors and subsequently, at the meeting of the National Economic Council on 14th December, 2017, where a resolution was passed, with the Council approving that up to US$1 billion may be released and utilised from the Excess Crude Account to address the situation.
“Subsequent upon this approval, we are preparing a comprehensive schedule of all the requirements for each of the security services for presentation to the National Assembly for consideration.
“It would be recalled that, for a number of years, Nigeria had been in discussions with the United States Government for the purchase of Super Tucano Aircraft under a direct Government-to-Government arrangement. Recently, approval was finally granted by the United States Government, but with a deadline within which part payment must be made otherwise, the contract would lapse.
“In the expectation that the National Assemblywould have no objection to the purchase of this highly specialised aircraft, which is critical to national security, I granted anticipatory approval for the release of US$496,374,470.00. This was paid directly to the treasury of the United States Government.
