Madagascar Foils Assassination Attempt On President Rajoelina

Published

on

Several suspects were arrested on Tuesday concerning a foiled assassination attempt on Madagascar President Andry Rajoelina, the country’s prosecutor general’s office said.

“Several foreign and Madagascar nationals were arrested on Tuesday, July 20, as part of an investigation into an attack on state security,” said prosecutor Berthine Razafiarivony, in a statement released overnight.

“At this stage of the investigation, which is ongoing, the prosecutor general’s office assures we will shed light on this case,” she added.

“According to the evidence in our possession, these individuals had devised a plan for the elimination and neutralization of a number of people, including the head of state,” the attorney general said.

It added that investigations were underway, and further details could not be disclosed.

Rajoelina was sworn in as president of the island country in 2019 after a hard-fought election and a constitutional court challenge from his rival.

The extent of the plot, or how far advanced, was not immediately clear.

The statement did not specify the nationality of the foreign nationals.

Citing diplomatic sources, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported that two French citizens are among the detained suspects.

…He’s a Complete Flirt, Angel Insists

Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Saksay, has revealed that Emmanuel asked her for a kiss during the last Saturday Night Party.

Saskay revealed this while discussing with Cross and Angel on Thursday, day 54 of the show, after Emmanuel and Liquorose received rewards from Biggie.

Big Brother rewarded Liquorose and Emmanuel with 250 Abeg Naira and 200 BB tokens each, as Liquorose successfully carried out her secret task.

Liquorose and Emmanuel were also rewarded with an exclusive two-hour dinner date in the Executive lounge.

Discussing the wins, Angel noted that despite Liquorose’s prank, she still believed that Emmanuel is a flirt.

Earlier in her Diary Session, Angel has stated that she was happy that Liquorose and Emmanuel were having a ‘fight‘.

When it was revealed that the ‘fight’ was a prank, Angel still insisted that Emmanuel was not being genuine to Liquorose.

Corroborating her claims, Saskay stated that Emmanuel also asked her for a kiss during the Friday party.

Saskay said, “We were dancing and next thing, he (Emmanuel) was like, ‘can I kiss you?’ I told him, ‘If you want to chop slap, go ahead’.”

She also added that she feels that Emmanuel’s nature is to joke around and Angel agreed to it.

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has disclosed why he joined the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Fani-Kayode explained that the APC he joined was different from the one he heavily criticized in the past.

The former minister had officially defected to the ruling party on Thursday.

His defection was disclosed at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, when he was presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by the acting National Chairman of APC.

However, the former minister explained that he joined a forward-thinking and accommodating party.

Speaking with Channels Television, Fani-Kayode, insisted that he joined APC to maintain national unity.

Asked if he joined for financial gain, he said: “I find that very insulting whether it is coming from you or my critics, I am not the first person that would decamp to the APC, have you asked others this same question?

“If you ask all politicians this question, you will get the same answer; nobody knows tomorrow. I have my values and I will continue to work towards that.”

Published

Controversial Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Gumi, has slammed former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode over his defection to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Fani-Kayode, who had been a great critic of the Buhari-led administration, joined APC on Thursday after he was received by the President at the State House, Abuja.

Gumi, reacting, shared a throwback statement by Fani-Kayode in 2018 saying he would rather die than join the APC or bow to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Gumi said he had long neglected the rantings of Fani-Kayode, knowing fully well that he is a traitor and fake.

He described the former minister as a Yoruba Judas and a traitor.

His post on Facebook read, “I have for long neglected the rantings of the Judas of Oduduwa attacking me knowing fully well that he is fake and a traitor.

“Time has now caught up with him and thanks to Allah, all his vituperations are cast in the dustbin of merciless history.

“It’s him now one wonders which of the seven circles of hell this duper will settle if he doesn’t repent.”
