Image
Religious leaders across the country said they will not perform the traditional Islamic prayer for the attackers who killed seven people and injured almost 50 in the atrocity in the London bridge attacks. The faith leaders have refused to carry it out for jihadis Khuram Butt, Rachid Redouane and Youssef Zaghba – calling their actions “indefensible”.According to the UK Sun, in a strongly-worded statement on the Muslim Council of Britain’s website – the largest Muslim body in the UK – the faith leaders said the terrorists’ actions were “completely at odds with the lofty teachings of Islam.”The statement said:
“Consequently, and in light of other such ethical principles which are quintessential to Islam, we will not perform the traditional Islamic funeral prayer over the perpetrators and we also urge fellow imams and religious authorities to withdraw such a privilege.
“This is because such indefensible actions are completely at odds with the lofty teachings of Islam.

Image
Some Northern Nigeria youth groups in Kaduna on Tuesday declared “war” against all Igbos residing in the North, demanding they leave the area within three months.In what they called a ‘Kaduna Declaration’ ,they also asked Northerners in the South-East to leave the area, before October 1 .
They said pro-Biafran activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB),“amount to a brutal encroachment on the rights of those termed as non-indigenous people residing and doing lawful businesses in those areas illegally demarcated and defined as Biafra by the Igbo.

The groups that signed the declaration include Arewa Citizens Action for Change, Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, Arewa Youth Development Foundation, Arewa Students Forum and Northern Emancipation Network, but it is unclear if known officials of any of the groups actually signed the document.

Mum shocked after son’s missing teeth is photoshopped in his school picture | Mr Olumide's Blog

Image
An excited mum  has expressed her displeasure after receiving her sons’ school photos in the post.
When she opened them and realised one of them had been drastically photoshopped.Ange Pickett, from Australia, posted the two photographs side-by-side , and wrote“As I looked at the photos of our eldest, I thought – ‘I didn’t realise he still had teeth when the photos were taken.’
“At first, I thought they’d given us last year’s photo – but then I looked closer. Nope. His mouth had been photo-shopped with what looked like last year’s baby teeth swapped in.”“Why would anyone think to do this?At what point did missing teeth become something to be ‘fixed’?”Surely we have lost the plot when we start photo shopping an 8 year old’s gappy grin.”Ange says the editing of the photograph raises serious questions about body image and the ideals enforced on our youngsters. “This is a kid who didn’t lose a tooth until he was almost seven. He’s not embarrassed by the gaps and wonky teeth, he’s excited b…

CHECK OUT WHAT HAPPENS INSIDE ABUJA CAMP OF FREED CHIBOK GIRLS | Mr Olumide's Blog

Image
By Magnus EzeThe 106 freed Chibok schoolgirls have continued to savour their freedom with testimonies, particularly as many of them had given up hope of coming out of Boko Haram captivity alive.As they worshiped last Sunday in their Abuja camp, the girls poured out their gratitude to God.Rhoda Peter and Luggwa Mutah intermittently burst out in praise in their local dialect.Freedom was secured for the first set of 24 girls last October, after painstaking negotiations with the insurgents, before another 82 were released a month ago.
