Nigeria’s escape from World Cup sorrow

FIFA had announced the deduction of three points from our fourteen points and awarded them to Algeria over the fielding of an ineligible player, Shehu Abdullahi, in the final leg of the qualification for the tournament which will hold in Russia in 2018. Abdullahi was given a one-match ban which he had not served when he was drafted to play in the second leg of Nigeria's away tie against Algeria.
Thank God! If not for the unassailable fourteen-point dominant lead Nigeria stamped on the earlier touted "zone of death", the Group B of Africa's World Cup qualification efforts, the nation could have been thrown into deep mourning after it was sanctioned by the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) on Tuesday, December 12, 2017.

G-Worldwide fires back, 'we have paid Kiss Daniel over 120million naira

Below is a detailed reaction from the Emperor Geezy led G-Worldwide records on the Kiss Daniel issue.There has been a lot of misinformation in the media as to the background of Kiss Daniel's wrongful exit from G-Worldwide Entertainment; firstly the management of G-Worldwide Entertainment wishes to state it had never been its intention to seek legal redress, nor join issues with an artist who we fear is being given bad legal advice.

Fire blast kills at least 20 people at an Illegal refinery In Bayelsa

Atleast 20 people died when a fire outbreak struck in the camp near the creeks of Ebelebiri and Otuogwe on December 5, 2017 and went up in flames. The source of the fire was funny as community sources claimed that an attempt by a woman in the camp to cook noodles, using a stove, sparked the fire that caused the havoc.  An eyewitness described the tragedy as follow: "When we got there, I almost vomited. I saw charred remains of people. They were burnt beyond recognition. In some cases, you could only see heads and feet of victims. Despite the burnt bodies, we still met people illegally cooking crude oil there. We thought that security agencies, especially the military, would have taken over the place, but we didn't meet any security operatives. We only met people who were still refining illegally bunkered crude oil. It was that bad and terrible."
