Manchenster United lost at home against Visiting Aston Villa

Manchenster United lost at home against Visiting Aston Villa

 So the FULL TIME ended in favour of the visitors as the final whistle goes on a game in which pretty much everything has gone wrong for United. Villa are 1-0 winners at Old Trafford.


Villa send the ball in and were able to defended it thereby went away with three points in the end. 


Man United were duly punished
as a great header from Hause gave Villa the needed points. 

Missed!
Bruno Fernandes takes it... and it's an awful penalty. Skied over the bar. It was Hause who handballed, ironically. 

Fernandes missed a 93rd-minute penalty as Aston Villa won at Old Trafford for the first time in 12 years in a pulsating match.

He blazed high over the bar in front of the Stretford End as United’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season came to an end.

Having suffered an early Carabao Cup exit at home to West Ham, United have lost their past two games without scoring.

Justice Sikiru Oyinloye of the Kwara State High Court sitting in Ilorin on Friday, September 3, 2021 sentenced one Adigun Oladapo Oludele, a final year student of the University of Ilorin, to one year imprisonment for offences bordering on internet fraud.

The court also ordered that the sum of N158,000 (One Hundred and Fifty Eight Thousand Naira) domiciled in the convict’s GTB account that was found to be proceed of unlawful transactions as well as his Lexus IS250 with registration number KJA 141 GU Lagos be forfeited to the Federal Government of Nigeria.









Also forfeited to the Federal Government were the convict’s iPhone 12, iPhone 7, Apple watch and 2 laptops, which were recovered from him at the point of arrest.

Adigun, 25, was prosecuted on two counts by the Ilorin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

He fraudulently obtained the sum of $6,3280.00 (Six Thousand, Three Hundred Twenty Eight United States Dollars) as benefit from the Ohio Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Portal of the United States of America.

One of the counts reads: “That you, Adigun Oladapo Oludele and one Ganiu Samson (at large) sometime between December 2020 and June, 2021 at Ilorin, within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, with intent to defraud did cheat by personation via the Ohio Pandemic Unemployment Assistance portal, U.S.A for which $6, 328.00 was paid as benefits and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 321 of the Penal Code Law and punishable under Section 324 of the same Law.”

The Defendant pleaded guilty to the charge.

Following his plea, counsel to the EFCC, Andrew Akoja, urged the court to convict the defendant. The defence counsel, T.A Hammed, did not oppose this position.

In his judgment, Justice Oyinloye said, ''This Honourable Court have not seen any reason why the defendant should not be convicted as the prosecution has placed enough materials before the court to prove its case beyond reasonable doubt”.

The judge consequently pronounced Adigun guilty and sentenced him to one year imprisonment with option of fine of N250,000 (Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira)

AFRICAN ACTION CONGRESS (AAC), BENUE STATE MOURNS COMRADE USHAHEMBA YAKUBU

AFRICAN ACTION CONGRESS (AAC), BENUE STATE MOURNS COMRADE USHAHEMBA YAKUBU

17th August, 2021


It is with a deep sense of grief that we announce the death of Comrade Ushahemba Yakubu, a member of our revolutionary political party in Guma LGA of Benue State.

He was killed yesterday evening by killer Fulani herdsmen around his community in Guma LGA of the state. 

Earlier displaced by herdsmen in 2018, he lived as an IDP in “Camp 1” at Daudu till yesterday when he was gruesomely murdered.

It is more painful to remember that he partook in the #June12Protest in Benue state, tagged #BenueUnderAttack; a peaceful protest against the incessant killings in the state by herdsmen, one that was shamefully opposed by government security agencies who have consistently failed in protecting vulnerable citizens.

His death is another painful reminder of the gross failure and incompetence of the Muhammadu Buhari led govt which was proactive in arresting, jailing and torturing five(5) comrades from the same community for joining the June12 Protest.


While we grieve painfully and condole members of his family, we also urge all members of the AAC and well meaning Nigerians to continue in their legitimate demand for social justice and equality for all, as well as the resignation of an irresponsible President.

Rest in Power comrade Ushahemba.

Solidarity Forever!

Cuba tops Caribbean medal tally as Olympiad winds up




Seven Caribbean nations appear on the final medal table from the Summer Olympic Games which ended here yesterday, with Cuba topping the list.

The Spanish-speaking Caribbean country won 15 medals as Caribbean nations finished with 15 gold, seven silver and nine bronze.


For the Cubans, their gold came in boxing through Andy Cruz, Julio la Cruz, Arlen Lopez and Roniel Iglesias, along with three-gold medal performance in rowing, allowing them to end in 14th place on the overall medal table.

The other Caribbean nations on the medal table were Jamaica, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Grenada. All but one of the medals won by this group of countries came in athletics.

Gold medal winners Elaine Thompson-Herah and Hansle Parchment of Jamaica, Shaunae Miller-Uibo and Steven Gardiner of the Bahamas, along with Puerto Rican Jasmin Camacho-Quinn all made history.


Thompson-Herah became the first to complete a 100-200 metres ‘double-double’ and Parchment made Jamaica the first country other than the United States to win the 110 metres hurdles in successive Olympic Games.

That feat was last accomplished by the USA in 1988, when Roger Kingdom retained the title he won in 1984.

Miller-Uibo and Gardiner gave the Bahamas the honour of being the first Caribbean country to win both 400 metres gold medals in the same Games since 1984.


Camacho-Quinn is Puerto Rico’s first Olympic champion in athletics.

Jamaica’s medal haul of four gold, one silver and four bronze earned Thompson-Herah and her compatriots fifth place on the athletics medal table, behind the United States, Italy, Kenya and Poland.

The USA won seven gold, 12 silver and seven bronze medals.

The much-maligned games, postponed from last year due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, wrapped up yesterday with the closing ceremony in the country’s capital.

With rising COVID cases, the Games proceeded behind closed doors, with athletes forced to undergo extensive testing throughout the showpiece.

“There are no words to describe what you have achieved,” said Tokyo 2020 president, Seiko Hashimoto.

“You have accepted what seemed unimaginable, understood what had to be done, and through hard work and perseverance overcome unbelievable challenges.”

The closing ceremony showcased parts of Japan culture, amidst fireworks at the Olympic stadium, as the curtain came down on the Games, with France’s capital Paris set to take the baton in 2024.

“For the first time since the pandemic began, the entire world came together,” said International Olympic Committee president, Thomas Bach.



Nobody has ever organised a postponed Games before.”
