bomb-blast

Multiple bomb explosions in Maiduguri, yesterday claimed the lives of two civilian JTF members while four of the suicide bombers were also killed.

The two CJTF paid the supreme price while preventing a Boko Haram bomber from entering the city through the Maiduguri-Dikwa road city gate, South-east of the capital, to detonate his explosive devices, the police said.

“A suicide bomber attempted to enter the city through the Maiduguri-Dikwa road city gate but was prevented by the Civilian JTF in the area. The bomber exploded killing two Civilian JTF members,” Commissioner of Police, Borno Command, Damiah Chukwu told newsmen at a press conference.

The bomb attack came in the wake of another suicide attack which occurred earlier in the day around the Jiddari-Polo, Southwest of the metropolis in the early hours of the day. Residents said they heard heavy sounds from the explosion, fueling anxiety of possible attack on the capital by Boko Haram but the police commissioner said the sounds were explosions from suicide bombers.

“We have a numbers of explosions today (Friday) in the city. At about 4.05am, two suicide bombers; a male and female were attempting to detonate explosive devices. One of the bombers was very close to the mobile policemen sandbag around the Federal High Court area and decided to unstrap her IEDs vest from her body but the male grabbed the vest and in the process, exploded, killing only the male bomber. Our men promptly arrested the lady who confessed that she was abducted by Boko Haram during attack on Gwoza (Borno hilly town captured by Boko Haram in September 2014).

She said she has been with Boko Haram since then until Thursday night when they prepared her for suicide attack,” the CP explained.

He said another the surviving bomber has been handed over to the military for further investigation after the preliminary interrogation by the police. He also said another suicide bombers targeting the Muna Garage blew themselves up after they were intercepted and prevented from entry the garage also in the early hours of Friday.

“Six people including two Civilian JTF and four suicide bombers died today in the multiple explosions-2 bombers at Jiddari-Polo, 2 bombers near Muna Garage along Maiduguri-Gamboru Ngala road and the Civilian JTF,” Chukwu explained.

He also warned against planned demonstration by “Shiite group or any unauthorized group or groups” in the state, saying the police and other security agencies were prepared to forestall breakdown of law and other. He urged residents to be more vigilant.

Zimbabwean Church leader in s*x scandal as photos naked photos and sex acts with 33 girls is exposed

Church leader
A Zimbabwean church leader, Nyasha Light Nyatsungo is enmeshed in a sex scandal and might also be facing legal action, after his ex-girlfriend flooded social media with his nude photo.
It was gathered that the Nyatsungo allegedly sent a nude picture of his Cape Town based ex–side chick, Shingi Mavenge, to his other girlfriend only identified as Beula who later broadcasted it on social media.
According to H-Metro, in an apparent fit of rage, Mavenge posted a WhatsApp chat she had with Nyatsungo’s wife identified as Nyasha Nhahumbi as well as a group chat with some of her former lover’s concubines.
According to Mavenge, she has gotten information that Nyatsungo has at least 33 girlfriends and has ditched his wife of eight years.
She adds that Nyatsungo bedded a girl who was their neighbour as well.
Mavenge said that the church leader’s wife revealed that they even consulted their local pastor in Mutare who failed in his attempts to mend Nyatsungo’s ways.
According to H-Metro, Nyatsungo, a married father of two, has denied ever circulating the picture, labelling Mavenge as a bitter woman whom he just flirted with on Facebook and nothing more.
“This Nyasha guy must be stopped in his tracks. He is going to pay for all the damage that he has done to me. He was the only one who had that leaked picture and I am shocked why he would forward it to some other girl,” fumed Mavhenge who is working on taking legal action.
 
“I started dating this guy in 2015 and never knew he was married. He lied.”  fumed Mavenge yesterday.
“That guy is full of lies and at some point, we opened a group chat with his wife and some of his girlfriends. He normally targets single mothers” added Mavenge.
H-Metro was furnished with six other cellphone numbers of his girlfriend that include Fadzai, Mutsa, Essy, Juliana, Barbra among others. Mutsa confirmed she once had a relationship with Nyatsungo have since terminated it since she discovered he was married.
Mavenge confirmed they met once in Johannesburg when she had to fly from Cape Town to meet her man sometime in April.
“That night he didn’t even have money. I had to pay the R800 for the accommodation as he had no money. He wanted to have sex with me but I flatly refused. He even wanted it without protection and I said No. he looked terrible with clothes in a plastic shopping bag. I want to write a letter to Pastor Rex who is the head of (the church) in Harare so that this guy be stopped with his tricks and lies,” added Mavenge.
When contacted over the phone in Mutare Nyatsungo confirmed he knew Mavenge but never had a relationship with her.
“I know her and we once flirted on Facebook. We never had a relationship as she is alleging. I don’t know why she is bitter. I haven’t seen the nude pictures she is talking about but I heard about it from Beula. We live in a democratic country. She can go ahead and sue me if she feels her rights have been infringed upon. All the allegations she is making are false and I don’t know her motive in trying to tarnish my image,” said Nyatsungo.
He said he was still with his wife whose phone rang without response yesterday afternoon. Despite his denials, H-metro was furnished with pictures of Nyatsungo and Mavenge, the time they met in April.
