We Will “Do Everything Possible” To Take Champions League From Real Madrid – Messi

Barcelona star Lionel Messi said the club will “do everything possible” this season to prise the Champions League trophy away from arch rivals Real Madrid, who have won the competition each of the past three years.
“This year I think we have a squad that allows us to dream. The new players are going to help us be better than before,” Messi told fans at the Camp Nou ahead of Wednesday’s 3-0 pre-season friendly win over Boca Juniors.
“Last season was very good because we won the cup and La Liga but the Champions League sticks in our throat, especially given the way we were eliminated,” he said, as Barcelona lost to Roma on away goals in the quarter-finals.
“We promise you this year we’re going to do everything possible so that this beautiful and much sought after cup comes back to the Camp Nou again,” added Messi, a Champions League winner in 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2015.
The 31-year-old will take over the captaincy at Barcelona this season following the departure of club legend Andres Iniesta for Japan.
“We’re going to miss the great Andres a lot this year,” said Messi. “It’s a great honour to be the captain and I know what that means at this club. I was lucky to have great examples like (Carles) Puyol, Xavi and Andres (Iniesta).”
Messi scored his side’s second goal in the victory over Argentine giants Boca in the Joan Gamper Trohpy, a traditional curtain-raiser named in honour of the club’s founder.
Brazilian winger Malcom, a new arrival from Bordeaux, opened the scoring and Rafinha struck a third goal for Ernesto Valverde’s team. Barcelona, who beat Sevilla 2-1 in the Spanish Super Cup on Sunday, begin the new La Liga campaign at home to Alaves on Saturday.

Lionel Messi Refuses To Play For Argentina After World Cup Embarrassment

Lionel Messi has told Argentina he will NOT play for them again this year, leading officials to fear he will retire from international football.
The Barcelona superstar, 31, has told caretaker boss Lionel Scaloni he will not play in friendlies against Guatemala and Colombia in the USA later this year.
The move has cast doubt over his availability for the 2019 Copa America – Argentina‘s next set of competitive games.
Messi has not played for Argentina since their thrilling 4-3 defeat at the hands of France in the last-16 of the World Cup.
But the Barca ace has been tight-lipped regarding his future ever since, even with Javier Mascherano and Lucas Biglia bringing down the curtain on their international careers.
Messi has already retired from international duty once – calling time on his career in June 2016.
Two years ago, after defeat in the Copa America final to Chile – with the the man himself missing in the penalty shootout – Messi announced he was done.
At the time, he said: “For me, the national team is over. I’ve done all I can. It hurts not to be a champion.”
However, he quickly made a U-turn and shone at the World Cup – albeit briefly – as Argentina crashed out early in Russia.
Messi, now Barcelona’s most-decorated player of all-time, may opt to end his career with the South American nation to prolong his club career.

A group of homeless people have taken shelter in a cemetery and they do not mind at all.
According to reports, the Brixton cemetery in Joburg, South Africa is known for being a den of drug users and homeless people.
“We did not choose this life, but this is now our home,” said Kgosi Tshila (38), a homeless man who lives at the Brixton Cemetery in Joburg. “We are just trying to survive. If anybody has a problem with us then they must find us shelter.”
Kgosi told Daily Sun that sleeping on the tombstones was warmer than sleeping on the streets, but it was sometimes scary.
“Sometimes we see things like ghosts but we do not have homes and there is nothing we can do about it. We just get used to the scene in front of us,” he said.
Kgosi said the cemetery was also used by magoshas. “People have sex right here while we are watching. There is nothing anyone can do about it,” he said.
Passers-by have also seen the homeless sitting on the graves while smoking nyaope or drinking booze. Brixton residents said the problem had been happening for years but it was getting worse. They said they had reported the matter to the cops many times, but nothing had been done about it.
Resident Emanuel Radebe (33) said: “These people do not respect the dead. “Even though I sympathise with them, this is completely wrong because they are disturbing the peace of our ancestors.”A group of homeless people have taken shelter in a cemetery and they do not mind at all.

Political Thugs Kidnapped Kogi Corper And Beat Her Mercilessly After She Refused To Rig Election

A female corps member who was deployed to the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC), Lokoja as her place of primary assignment (PPA) and was later sent to one of the polling units as an INEC official was kidnapped by political thugs and beaten mercilessly, because she refused to take order from them to rig the election.
The lady, after she was rescued, was seen distraught and crying in a video while she was being consoled by people around her.
The bye-election to fill the vacant seat in the Lokoja-Kogi Federal Constituency which started on a peaceful note on Saturday was later marred by violence, vote buying and intimidation in Lokoja.
A News Agency of Nigeria correspondent monitoring reported that the election was marred by political thugs going from one polling unit to another to perpetrate fraud.
Although policemen and other security agents were seen at the police stations, they looked the other way, while thugs terrorised people.
At the polling unit at Paparanda Square, voting could not hold as thugs invaded the venue, snatching election materials and beating up people queuing to vote.
Watch video below:-

A similar scenario played out at polling units at Mary Primary School, Karaworo, Adnakolo and Crowther Secondary School, where thugs also disrupted voting.
At Adankolo, some thugs threw stones on people queueing to cast their votes at one of the polling units, chasing them away.
Some of the voters who came in their vehicles had their windscreens smashed.
At St. Peter’s Primary School, Felele, voters were seen receiving N2, 000 each after being certified to have voted for particular candidates.
Some officials of the Kogi Government could be seen moving from one polling unit to another in convoys, accompanied by heavily armed policemen and other security operatives.
The Federal Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission in charge of Kogi, Niger and Nasarawa States, Alhaji Mohammed Haruna, has however, said that the election would be cancelled where discrepancies and violence were recorded.
“INEC will review every case of violence, ballot snatching, voter intimidation and vote buying and take appropriate action,’’ he said.
Haruna stated that the rules guiding conduct of elections in Nigeria were clear, noting that election would be voided at any polling unit where rules had been violated.

Police Officer Commits Suicide In Bayelsa After Infecting 5 Girls With HIV

A dismissed Police officer from Cross River State has committed suicide after being accused of defiling and infecting a nine-year-old girl, and five others, with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
Acan cording to investigation by the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA), the policeman was dismissed from the force for alleged gross misconduct and detained in a prison in Port Harcourt, and relocated to Bayelsa State.
Community sources said the incident, which has provoked anger among indigenes of Kolokuma/Opokuma area of the state, led to a search for the officer, but he escaped towards Trofani community in Sagbama Local Government Area, where he was reported to have committed suicide.
A source, who preferred not to be named, revealed that the six victims included a female lover, who had moved to Delta State after a test proved she was HIV positive.
“Investigation showed that the man escaped from a prison in Port Harcourt sometime last year and embarked on a defilement spree. More than five underage persons were reportedly defiled and infected with HIV,” the source stated.
“The nine-year-old girl, names withheld, was defiled recently. The victim told her mother about the act, but the mother refused to listen to her.
However, when the girl could not walk properly and was sickly, the mother took her for a laboratory test and discovered that she had not only been defiled but was also HIV positive.
“We call on the Bayelsa State Commissioner of Health and the FIDA to come to the aid of the victims. They need treatment.” Contacted on the development, spokesman of the Bayelsa Police Command, Asinim Butswat, said though he had heard about the incident, it had not been “officially reported to the command”.

Elder statesman and former Minister of Information and National Orientation, Prof Jerry Gana has declared that Nigerians are tired and already waiting to vote out President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election.
According to Gana, Nigerians were in dire need of a leader that would rescue them from the myriads of problems, which the current government led by Buhari inflicted on them.
Addressing newsmen, Monday evening, the former minister decried the incessant killings across the country, stressing that the administration under the APC had performed woefully and should be booted out.
He said, “Every patriotic Nigerian with the sense of compassion knows that the country needs to be rescued. The nation is going through a very difficult time, unprecedented insecurity across the land, people killing with such horrible intensity, and the inhuman ways in which it is done.
“What is going on now is not religious, but a real horrible contest for control of resources in Nigeria, particularly the land resources and the people of Nigeria will not take it.
“Any government under any rulership that cannot secure Nigerians and ensure that Nigeria is peaceful and secured, is not worthy to even be called a government. Therefore, Nigerians are tired of the current government.
