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.

Language of the female body

Language of the female body. The secrets of the female body language are for many men a true and indecipherable mystery

The secrets of the female body language are for many men a true and indecipherable mystery . Yet the knowledge of body language is inherent in every human being, unfortunately in years of social habits have so deeply tormented our souls that we have become idiots asexual and without instinct.

Did you know that 93% of the communication is non-verbal while the remaining 7% is what you say, in practice it does not matter very much what you say, but the way you say it . The language of the female body is therefore a great source of information, such as to understand if you like a girl, if she is angry with you, disgusted, happy or excited!

Body Language

How to understand the secrets of female body language? Most people believe that body language is a humanistic gift, as sensitivity could be. In reality it is absolutely not like that. In fact, thousands of studies have been done to decode the various actions of the female body and understand their true meaning. This is because women, basic, are not very sincere. What they say they want is almost never what they really want, it's their mysterious nature.

So knowing how to understand the secrets of the female body language is first of all a scientific study, starting by studying them from time to time and then applying them. A trick to learn the secrets of female body language more quickly: instead of reading and studying them as much as you can, take them into consideration three at a time. Study them and look for them in the girls you talk to. Only those three, not others! After just a few times those 3 messages you will notice automatically without having to think about it. After you take three more and do the same thing.

Each person has their own learning time, maybe you just have to apply what you just read for a few hours and make your secrets, so take the time you need. Another trick to learn more about the secrets of female body language: movies are an incredible source of body language study, so download or hire some boring romantic movie or American teen comedy and look for those famous body language cues that you were studying.

A list of female body messages.

Every single message of the body can have so many variations, it is therefore up to your experience and intelligence to know them also in those cases. We see a generic list of the main and most important indicators of interest that a girl can send you:

He bites his lip . This is a very sensual action that leaves no room for great interpretations, if one does, you're sure she really likes you a lot.

You touch your hair . This is a gesture that girls often do (not all), if they revive them or move them to show off their face or neck for sure is a positive sign. If instead he plays us, maybe making some locks is probably nervous.

Play with the jewels. Or jewelry in general like collanine, rings or hair stops. It usually indicates a certain attraction towards you. In particular, the rings have a sexual nuance (insert and remove the finger from the ring for example).

Laugh at your idiocies. This is a clear sign of interest, if you just release from laughter whatever you say, even the least fun is certainly taken dates.

He touches you. When she herself makes a strong kino it's because she really wants to have a more intimate physical contact with you. Sometimes he will touch you in a joking way, maybe with a little nudge or some playful slap.

Touch yourself . In a more precise way it touches some very important areas, sexually and biologically, such as the neck (very sensual) or the wrists.

The dress is adjusted . This attitude is both to be in order with you and because with this gesture you move your attention where you want veils (to show off your femininity).

He puts your clothes in order. Or leverage a hair from your jacket, or put your tie in place, are all very intimate attention that indicate a strong interest and desire for attention and physical contact on your part.

What is the purpose of understanding the language of the female body?

The previous one is a generic list of female body messages that indicate interest in you. If you notice one just do not give us too much importance, when there are already at least two then it is very likely that you are seducing her well But what is the use of knowing the secrets of the female body language in purely practical terms?

To understand if your technique of seduction is successful, because even if you send signals of interest may not be enough and maybe you have to increase physical contact with her, or play more or simply show more resolute, more alpha male and make it your own. In addition there is another advantage that helps a lot, that of safety in themselves. Knowing that she feels even the slightest bit of interest will make you feel better and feel more confident even if you say negative things. Many girls when they find someone they like are a bit 'bad' to be desired and see if they face a serious and strong man or a crying little boy who escapes the first difficulties. So if you are a bastard, in words,

This is because words are often full of bale, while the body does not lie, so it is very useful to know the secrets of the language of the female body.

Five things you do not know about anal sex

Five things you do not know about anal sex. Anal sex is still often, and for many people, a big taboo

Anal sex is still often, and for many people, a big taboo. Many women are intimidated by more or less truthful stories of real or "virtual" friends known through forums.

He speaks little and with great embarrassment. To ironize a little, we decided to reveal 5 little "secrets" of anal sex. 5 curiosities for an unusual penetration.

Infections and risks

anal sex

The risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases is quite high, for this reason it is better to always use condoms. To avoid absolutely the transition from anal to vaginal sex, since the germs present in the rectum could infect the vagina. In these cases it will be essential to wash the genitals and obviously change the condom.

 Like men

30% of males usually practice anal sex. The males particularly appreciate this practice, since, from a merely physical point of view, the anal sphincter is able to compress the penis better than the vagina. As a result this practice ensures greater stimulation for men.

Fear of women

There are very few women who manage to let go during this practice: only 12% said they enjoyed anal sex and practiced it on a regular basis. Many others reject it regardless, fearful of physical pain or simply because unwilling to be dominated.

Practice outlaws

The Roman nobles used to sodomize their slaves to assert their power over the latter. Later, for about 3 centuries (from the 13th to the 18th) this practice was banned. Those who were stained with the crime of sodomy were punished with death at the stake. Those who contracted anal intercourse were held to be immoral. A decree able to resist until today, given that in 13 US states the abolition of the aforementioned occurred only in 2003.

Delicacy first of all

Female fears are not useless. The anal orifice is rather delicate and to ensure intense enjoyment and limit pain, it is essential to lubricate the area with care. To do this, nothing better than silicone and water based lubricants, it is better to avoid vaseline. Penetration must be "soft". It is best to first massage the anus to relax it and introduce one or more fingers before the member enters.

Okpokwu killings: Benue elders caution FG against inflammatory remarks

Leaders of the three main socio-cultural organizations in Benue state, on Thursday, cautioned top government officials and service chiefs against making inflammatory remarks that are capable of causing further killings in the state. 

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State showing pictures of victims of the recent Benue massacre by herdsmen to journalists Apparently irked by the failure of the federal government to put a stop to the killings, the elders of the socio-cultural groups, which comprises Mdzough U Tiv, Idoma National Forum and Omi Ny’ Igede, said what was needed, especially at a time of severe security challenges in the state, were words that promote peace and unity between farmers and herdsmen rather than violence. 

At a press conference in Abuja on the recent killing of about 26 people of Benue in Okpokwu Local Government by armed Fulani herdsmen, the elders said the body language and utterances of government officials have not convinced the people of Benue of the federal government’s willingness to protect and defend them in line with their constitutional roles. Barr Amali Adoya Amali, who spoke on behalf of the elders, accused President Muhammadu Buhari and the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, of making unguarded statements that could fuel violence in the state. 

Amali, who expressed disappointment over the federal government’s failure to create a conducive environment for dialogue between aggrieved parties in the state, said the people of the state would resist any move to impose a state of emergency in Benue over the continued killings in the state. 

“The President himself had said that more people have been killed in Taraba than Benue and Zamfara states put together. Such a statement may be misconstrued to mean that there should be more killings in Benue state. “The Inspector-General of Police’s statement that government should establish free ranches with all infrastructures is an invitation to anarchy and further killings. The IGP acts autocratically and assumes the role of judiciary, legislature and executive. 

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State
“We are disappointed by the IGP’s call on vigilante to surrender arms without mentioning the armed Fulani herdsmen. The reluctance of the Federal government security agencies to arrest perpetrators, especially Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, even when they admitted responsibility for the cruel killings in Benue,” he said. 

We’ll resist state-of emergency in Benue The elders described the alleged plan to declare a state of emergency in Benue as satanic. They also vowed to mobilise the people to resist the move. “We want to say that the plan to declare a state of emergency in Benue is satanic and we, the people of the state, would resist it, because it is a needless punishment on them for standing up for their rights. 

“A state of emergency in Benue over the killings in the state is a fight against the people for exercising and defending their rights to make laws for peace and good governance of the state as entrenched in the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria. We will not accept that,” they said. Exercise Cat Race a deceptive ploy of govt They also described the on-going Exercise Cat Race (Ayem Akpatuma) as a deceptive strategy by the Federal government to aid the invasion of Benue state by herdsmen. 

“We expect that the Army’s ‘Exercise Ayem Akpatuma’ will assist the over 160,000 IDPs to move back to their homes by restoring peace and order. This has not been done. 

Instead, armed Fulani herders have continued to occupy such homes. “We also expected the army to inspire confidence in Benue people rather than fuelling their fears that they have come to assist the Fulani herders to continue killing, occupying Benue land and homes and further influx of large number of Fulani and cattle,” they said. 

The elders further called on the well-meaning Nigerians, other socio-cultural organizations in the country as well as the international community to rise in solidarity to defend the people of Benue state and also pressurize the federal government and her law enforcement agencies to respect the state’s anti-open grazing law.

Blatter says he wants FIFA to reconsider his case

Banned former FIFA president Sepp Blatter intends to ask the ethics committee of the global football body to reconsider his case and lift his six-year ban from the sport. 

Sepp Blatter Blatter, who led FIFA for 17 years, was barred for ethics violations in 2015 amid the biggest corruption scandal to shake the world football governing body. 

The ban was imposed shortly after the Swiss attorney-general’s office began criminal proceedings against him on suspicion of criminal mismanagement and misappropriation.
No charges have yet been brought and Blatter has denied any wrongdoing. “It is now two and a half years. This file has not moved,” Blatter told reporters. 

He added that he had no indication how long the investigation would last. “It is like having the Sword of Damocles over my head because you never know what will happen.” Blatter, who last month told the media that he was considering legal action to clear his name, said he was now thinking of asking FIFA’s ethics committee to reopen his case. “I am looking to have a solution also from the FIFA ethics committee to lift the suspension, which is a nonsense,” he said. “I am also trying to see how we can change it. 

I hope to have a solution in the next three months before we open the World Cup in Russia.” The Swiss attorney-general’s office could not immediately be reached for comments but it has in the past said that such investigations can take several years. Blatter also confirmed that he had been invited by President Vladimir Putin to attend the World Cup in Russia in June and July. “I’m honoured and I have accepted,” he said.
