Man Utd will consider sacking Jose Mourinho if Tottenham win FA Cup semi - report

Mourinho’s Manchester United future is in doubt following the Red Devils’ shock Champions League exit to Sevilla earlier this month.

The 54-year-old masterminded EFL Cup and Europa League triumphs last season in his first campaign at Old Trafford.
Yet, despite United being second in the Premier League, there is a feeling all is not well behind the scenes.
His criticism of Luke Shaw, failure to coax the best out of Alexis Sanchez and decision to bring Paul Pogba back down to earth have all gone down poorly.
And the Manchester Evening News say Jose Mourinho's will job will be under threat if he does not deliver the FA Cup.
The club famously sacked David Moyes after just 10 months after the Scot failed to deliver any trophies - or anything else for that matter - during his time in charge.
Louis van Gaal won the FA Cup in his second season at the helm having narrowly avoided the axe the season before.
Yet even that was not enough with United choosing to dump him and appoint Mourinho instead.
The MEN say the Portuguese’s future hinges on the FA Cup.

They face Tottenham in April and defeat to Mauricio Pochettino’s side would see them end the campaign empty-handed.
What could make things worse would be if Manchester City were to win a triple.
They will miss out on FA Cup glory this year but the Premier League is expected to be added to their Carabao Cup win last month.
It would also not be a stretch to see them win the Champions League given their blockbuster form so far this season.

Emotions ran high yesterday at the Lagos State Police Command as some under-aged girls, who were allegedly lured from their villages by human trafficking agents, narrated how they ended up being prostitutes in a hotel at Iyana Ipaja area of Lagos. 

Some of the girls, whose ages were between 15 and 19, disclosed that they slept with at least four men every night, for N1,000 each. Others, who were discovered to have abandoned their children in their villages, with the hope of getting a job that will improve their living condition, lamented that the present economic situation was affecting their trade, following low turnout of customers. The revelation came after the Lagos State Police Command uncovered the hotel, located on Ige Street, with the subsequent arrest of some its management staff. 

One of the girls, aged 17 (names withheld), boldly stated that she came to Lagos to ‘hustle.’ Her words: “I am an orphan. Someone directed me here from Calabar, Cross River State. I started four months ago. I attend to at least four men every night and collect N1,000 from each of them; but I use condom.” On her part, Jovelin Edet, a mother of one, stated that she left her three-year-old child in her friend’s care in Akwa Ibom State, after she was assured of getting a job in Lagos.

#BBNAIJA: Ifu Ennada Reveals How She Was Defiled And Deflowered By Someone In The Entertainment Industry

Big Brother Naija Housemate Ifu Ennada has shared her touching r*pe and depression story on social media.
Ifu Ennada revealed, she was defiled in 2016 by someone in the entertainment industry and before then she was a Virgin and the person also infected her with an STI.
My Virginity Story; r*pe & Depression
When I was in the Big Brother House emotions were raised when during a Truth or Dare game I said I’d not really had s*x.
People interpreted that as me claiming to be a Virgin.
 Ifu Ennada
The truth is in 2016 I was defiled by someone in the entertainment industry, before then I was a Virgin. This person also infected me with an STI.
I was also threatened by this person and was very scared of social media’s bashing with the usual questions of “what was she wearing!” ”  
Though some parts of my film is fiction, the bulk of it was inspired by my story.
The lead character’s name is Ada which is a short form of my name Adanne- popularly pronounced as Ennada.
Because of my sad experience I battled depression, developed trust issues and found it hard to connect with people especially men.
I wanted to tell my story and also pass a strong message to r*pe victims and defilers…I hope I was able to do that with my film.
I intend to expand this into a feature length film. I hope everyone out there is inspired to stand up against rape.

Suspected thugs, kidnappers, robbers finger Dino Melaye as arms supplier

The Nigeria Police, yesterday, paraded two suspected political thugs with two AK-47 and five pump action guns allegedly working for the lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial district, Senator Dino Melaye.

 Jimoh Moshood and the alleged thugs hired by Dino Melaye Melaye, 3 others charged with illegal possession of firearms The two suspects— Kabiru Saidu aka Osama, 31, and Nuhu Salisu aka Small, 25, were paraded by the Police Force Headquarters Public Relation Officer, Mr. Jimoh Moshood, at the Kogi State Police Command in Lokoja. According to him, they were arrested after a gun battle with a Police team, which lasted for several hours on January 19. 

However, reacting to the allegations, Senator Melaye said it was an orchestrated lie by the governor and the Police to shut him up, and that he had never seen the arrested suspects. Meanwhile, parading the two kidnappers alleged to have been supplied guns and ammunition by Senator Melaye, Moshood said the Senator had been ignoring Police invitations to clear his name from the allegation. Moshood said the two suspects, Osama and Small, were members of a notorious gang behind numerous kidnapping and robbery cases in the state. 

He said: “Working on actionable intelligence, the Kogi State Police Command personnel and Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, FSARS, trailed and arrested the two suspects after a gun battle with the Police team on January 19 at Ogojueje in Dekina Local Government Area of Kogi State. “During investigation, they confessed to several kidnappings and robberies in different towns across the state and its environs for which they have been on the wanted list of the Police for more than two years. 

“During interrogation, they further confessed they were political thugs recruited by some mischievous politicians in Kogi to cause mayhem, disruption of peace, and destruction of lives and properties in the state.” ‘Saidu fingered Dino Melaye’ Continuing, the Police spokesman said: “They also confessed to belong to the gang of a dreaded and vicious kidnap-for-ransom gang under a gang leader whose whereabouts is being investigated. “According to the gang leader, Kabiru Saidu, he has been working as a political thug for a politician, who introduced him to Senator Dino Melaye and they met at Airport Road, Abuja inside Senator Melaye’s car in December 2017. 

“The suspect further confessed that Senator Dino told him to start working for him as a political thug and they should recruit and train more thugs to work for him in preparations towards 2019 general election to enable him challenge his political opponents and disorganise Kogi State.” Moshood said the suspects further confessed that Dino handed over a bag containing one AK-47 rifle, two pump action and N430,000 for them to share. 

He said a case of criminal conspiracy and unlawful possession of prohibited firearms had been filed by the Police against the two suspects and Senator Dino Melaye. It’s Kogi govt’s frame-up—Melaye Meanwhile, Senator Dino Melaye in his reaction to the allegations, said it was a frame-up and an orchestrated attempt by the state government to discredited him. 

The Senator said he had never seen the suspects in his life and did not have anything to do with them. Melaye said the move was an attempt by the Kogi State government to shut him up and prevent him from speaking the truth about governance in the state. 

The Senator noted that he contested and won elections into the House of Representatives and the Senate without working with political thugs, saying the plan had been exposed about six weeks ago. Melaye’s words: “This is an attempt to shut me up and stop me from speaking the truth. But they have failed. It is an orchestrated lie by the governor and the Police. “I have tweeted about it six weeks ago; that they want to set me up because I got a tip-off from government house when they met to set me up.

“You can see the conflicting statements by the criminals. I heard one said I gave two AK-47 and pump action, while the other said I gave only one rifle and that I gave N430,000 to train militia, and that I met them on Airport Road in December 2017. “But they didn’t give a date and time. I don’t know anybody. I have not involved myself with any thug. I became member House of Representatives and Senate without thug. If this is an attempt to shut me up they have failed.”

Nigeria’ll break into 6 republics before 2023—Uwazuruike

LEADER of Biafra Independence Movement, BIM and founder of Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike yesterday predicted that what is known today as Nigerian nation would break into six different republics before 2023.

Uwazuruike He noted that the present pigeonholed six geo-political zones of the country, namely South-East, South-South, South-West, North-Central, North-East and North-West, would metamorphose into the six republics, with South-East becoming the long agitated New Biafra, while South-South becomes Niger-Delta Republic, just as South-West and North-Central become Oduduwa and Middle-Belt Republics respectively, leaving North-East and North-West as Arewa Republic In a press statement issued yesterday in Onitsha, Anambra state,  shortly after BIM’s Anambra South Zonal meeting held at Uga, Aguata Local Government Area of the state, Uwazuruike who was represented by a member of Biafra Elders–in-council, Mazi Chris Mocha, observed that “the obvious lack of  trust in the relationship or union between the northern and southern Nigeria is too inexplicable that Nigerians cannot continue to co-exist as one nation.” 

Uwazuruike contended that “the faulty amalgamation of the northern and southern Nigeria in 1914 which expired since January 2014, also made it imperative that the country must surely break up in the near future, based on Biafran constitution which provided that any section of the country that is dissatisfied with the union will be at liberty to secede.” 

He therefore urged Biafra leaders “to ensure that the federation is run in such a way that the citizens would be happy at all times and willing to belong to Biafra without being forced to do so.” He insisted that “it was only in a corrupt country like Nigeria where illegality thrives that citizens are forced to live together and always show allegiance to the state”, adding, “we do not deserve Biafra if the emerging republic cannot be better than Nigeria.”

Kogi Gov, Police set to implicate me, Melaye cries out

THE fight between governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State and Senator Dino Melaye, APC, Kogi West, has taken another dimension, as the Senator Monday alleged that the governor and the state’s Police Command may have perfected plans to have him arrested over trump-up charges on gun running. 

Sen. Dino Melaye Dino Melaye, 3 others charged with illegal possession of firearms According to Melaye, one of such plans would be that the governor will organise a press briefing by the state Police Commissioner any moment from Monday in Lokoja where a notorious criminal by the name Osama will be paraded. In Melaye’s WhatsApp post, Osama will thereafter name Melaye in front of the cameras as a gun supplier. 

The statement said, “Given the faulty premise of recalling Senator Dino Melaye, they have realised that the exercise may fail and all attempts to have him arrested is not yielding fruits, hence they want to frame him up on gun running so that he will lose public sympathy which he enjoys now.” 

On why Melaye is being framed up, it said that said Governor Bello was “seriously” infuriated by the lawmaker’s recent comment on the floor of the Senate regarding the importation of military camouflage, boots and others by the governor. “For daring to expose the governor on the importation of these dangerous items like military wares, they said he must face the music this time at all costs because the governor is seriously angry. 

So, a criminal in detention will be paraded to mention his name as a gun supplier. But I think this is laughable because the Senator is well known to all.”

Coup Trial: IPOB raises alarm over non-service of its members with amended charge

THE Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has raised the alarm over alleged failure of the Federal Government to serve its members charged to court along with its leader, Nnamdi Kanu with the amended charge as ordered by the trial judge. 

Those being tried include Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawusi, Bright Chimezie Ishinwa and Chidiebere Onwudiwe. IPOB members This was contained in a statement signed by the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful yesterday. 

The statement entitled, “We must not allow this travesty of justice to continue,” read: “We hereby place the Nigerian Judiciary and the world at large on notice that less than 24 hours to the commencement of trial of those charged with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as co-conspirators in a plot to overthrow the government of Major General Muhammadu Buhari, retd, they are still to be served an amended charge as ordered by the presiding judge, Justice Binta Nyako at the last hearing over four weeks ago. 

“This flagrant disregard of court ruling is nothing new to this administration but it is particularly disheartening when the defendants have been in detention without trial for upwards of three years. “In no other supposed democratic country will such blatant  detention be sanctioned without trial except in Nigeria. 

Why is it that something as routine as filing of charges against those accused of having committed a crime, is proving difficult for the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice and the Department of State Services, DSS, in this instance? “Is it because the men are innocent and deserve unreserved apology from the government over their incarceration for abridgement of their freedom or is it because the government has lost its way and can longer proceed with the sham trial? “Information reaching us now  has it that Justice Binta Nyako has concluded plans with the office of Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, to adjourn/postpone the court case between the federal government and the Biafrans still held illegally in Kuje Prisons, thereby subjecting and exposing these innocent Biafrans to inhuman and degrading treatment.”

Here's how to become a nymphomaniac!

The awareness of one's body must be trained. If you do not concentrate on the heel you will never learn to love it. The nymphomaniac loves all herself because she sends troops of speleologists to identify every erogenous zone of her body.
Hi beautiful! Do you want to become a real nymphomaniac ? Here is the guide that's right for you!
Ohi ohi ohi, are you not interested in carnal pleasure? Are you waiting for the right man to remove your inhibitions? Between a weekend of perdition with a strong Cuban mulatto and a permanent contract in a law firm, do you prefer the second scenario?
You're a wasted woman!
But all is not lost. Today you can recover the time thrown away and become a nymphomaniac using only the power of the mind.
Did you know that we use only 15% of our brains? Obviously it's bullshit. It would be like saying that a car running at 50 per hour uses only 15% of the engine components. Yet some believe it. Because it does not matter that things are true, what matters is how we perceive them.
Well, to become nymphomaniac you must begin to perceive the male body as something new and appetizing.
Just a few minutes of reading and you will be ready to enjoy the male as if it were Antani.
Do not put a limit on the compliments you can receive.
Do you cut your hair and he does not even notice it? Of course, it's a boy! How much do you think your new hairstyle might interest you? If you like to receive compliments you will be astonished in bed. If it is not enough for you yet, find other men to amaze.
Get in the spotlight.
A man in the midst of so many ladies is passed off. Do not believe what it shows tubegalore. For women it is different, there are no limits to the number of men with whom they can have fun at the same time.

Forget the body, conquer his mind.
AHAHAHAHA, Cartesian dualism in man is not a dualism. We are all one, mind and all. So, if you want to conquer his mind you have to pass on his body.
Make your friends die of envy.
The only form of social interaction that is comprehensible to women is the challenge. This is why they do not have friends but only competitors. A good way to win is to be the most desired by men, and being nymphomaniac helps a lot.
Take back your time.
Enough with the courtship that they know of old and the kind ways of the last century, time wasted on building lies. Today's emancipated woman is a flamboyant Cyndi Lauper who knows what she wants and wants it right away. 

Shoot down gender stereotypes
Female slave shut up and wash (or key). Woman at the stove more beautiful men. These and other annoying masculine slogans must be disintegrated. We have packed the baggage of this Tavagnacco bar sexism.
Stress stress.
The best way to relax is to spend free time with the mind obscured by sexual pleasure and the muscles sedated by post-acrobatics endorphins. Nymphomania works more or less like yoga but is cheaper.
Know yourself.
The awareness of one's body must be trained. If you do not concentrate on the heel you will never learn to love it. The nymphomaniac loves all herself because she sends troops of speleologists to identify every erogenous zone of her body.
Keep your body and mind in shape.
To burn calories there is not only the treadmill. Changing position during mating rituals is a great exercise not just for abdominals, buttocks and groins. The main benefit is mental. The cognitive projection of the joint keeps your synapses elastic and your fronto-temporo-medial brain fizzy.
Always get  right .
The woman who wants to bring a man to bed is always right.

Ronaldo closer to Messi in Pichichi top scorers’ race

Lionel Messi’s 25th LaLiga goal of the season kept Barcelona on track for the 2017/18 LaLiga Santander title, during a weekend which also saw Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo make up ground in the ‘Pichichi’ top scorers’ race with a four goal ‘poker’.

Ronaldo and Messi
Paco Alcacer was also on the score sheet at the Camp Nou as the blaugrana side moved another step closer to a first ever entire LaLiga season unbeaten. Barça are now 11 points clear at the top of the table, after second placed Atlético Madrid lost 2-1 at Villarreal on Sunday afternoon. Atlético lead thanks to Antoine Griezmann’s first half penalty, but a late double from Turkey international Enes Unal turned the game around completely.

Getafe climbed into the top half with a 2-1 comeback victory at Real Sociedad on Saturday evening. La Real announced on Sunday that B team coach Imanol Alguacil was being promoted to replace Eusebio Sacristan as first team boss for the rest of the season. 

Paco Lopez became the first Levante coach to win both his first two LaLiga games in charge, with young Ghana striker Emmanuel Boateng hitting the winner in a 2-1 home victory over Eibar which gives his side a six point cushion over the bottom three. 

The weekend’s big battle at the bottom finished 1-1 at Riazor, with Las Palmas playmaker Alen Halilovic’s fine solo goal putting his side ahead on just three minutes, but Deportivo La Coruna defender Raul Albentosa equalising with a header before half time.
