    Daily Post (Nigeria) ^ | April 24, 2017 | Matthew Omonigho
    In what appears to be a revenge mission, a rival cult group, in the early hours of today, launched a retaliatory attack over the death of one of their members, Kevwe Ikolo. Ikolo was allegedly murdered at his residence barely a month ago. Early Monday morning, suspected members of the Vikings confraternity stormed the home of a member of Aiye Confraternity at Ekiagbon Quarters and allegedly macheted one Emmanuel Misiate to death in his apartment. DAILY POST learnt that Misiate had survived a similar attack in the past. ‎This time, it was gathered that the Vikings, allegedly led by one...

    President Donald Trump's administration is pushing forward with plans to sell up to a dozen aircraft to Nigeria's air force for the fight against the extremist group Boko Haram, sources said on Monday, in a deal that could be worth up to $600 million. The Super Tucano A-29 aircraft, an agile, propeller-driven plane with reconnaissance and surveillance as well as attack capabilities, is made by Brazil's Embraer. A second production line is in Florida, in a partnership between Embraer and privately held Sierra Nevada Corp of Sparks, Nevada. Former President Barack Obama's administration originally agreed on the sale, but delayed...

    Can there be anything more symbolic of the Obama administration’s failure to combat the global Jihad than Boko Haram’s kidnapping of hundreds of Christian school girls in Nigeria three years ago? Especially given the fact that Boko Haram subsequently became an Islamic State affiliate. That’s right, one side-effect of the Obama administration allowing the Islamic State to form and metastasize was the joining of forces with the organization that then-first lady Michelle Obama so infamously “attacked” with her hashtag counterterrorism program. This week marks the third anniversary of the mass abduction

    British armed forces offered to attempt to rescue nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram, but were rebuffed by Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria’s president at the time, the Observer has learned. In a mission named Operation Turus, the RAF conducted air reconnaissance over northern Nigeria for several months, following the kidnapping of 276 girls from the town of Chibok in April 2014. “The girls were located in the first few weeks of the RAF mission,” a source involved in Operation Turus told the Observer. “We offered to rescue them, but the Nigerian government declined.” The girls...

    The United Nations needs $4.4 billion by the end of March to prevent catastrophic hunger and famine in South Sudan, Nigeria, Somalia and Yemen, yet just $90 million has been collected so far, Secretary-General António Guterres said Wednesday. With over 20 million people at risk of starvation over the next six months and famine already declared in parts of South Sudan, “we are facing a tragedy,” Guterres said. “We must avoid it becoming a catastrophe.” Convening reporters for a briefing at the U.N. headquarters, Guterres amplified concerns that U.N. officials and humanitarian groups have expressed in recent weeks about the...

Following the development, reactions have been stirred all over Social media, and Nigerians have had their fair share of the matter, comparing the newly formed government of Donald Trump and the already established government of Nigeria as led by President Muhammdu Buhari.

    Nigerian Nobel-literature laureate Wole Soyinka has confirmed that he has relocated to his native Nigeria. The move is in line with his pledge to leave the United States if Donald Trump won the US elections. The infamous decision to rip apart his green card made the headlines before and after the November 8 polls that Trump won beating Hillary Clinton, his main contender. A green card simply is a document that identifies the bearer as an alien with permanent resident status in the United States. The 82-year-old told AFP on the sidelines of an education conference at the University of...

Davis, an American diplomat stationed in Africa, instructing her to “put on Post letterhead” an “expression of interest” by the department in purchasing property at Eko Atlantic, a massive real estate development off the coast of Lagos. Franklin further instructed...
