He was Commodore Murtala Daba, He was married to Ummul and survived by a daughter. He was a funny and caring officer who trained in Italy and Belguim. There was never a dull moment with "Oga dabbos/ dabros" as he's known by friends. With his infectious smile. I met him on a few occasions and he was an Officer and a Gentleman. A devote muslim. Never a dull moment with him. He would be buried according to islamic rites as soon as his body is handed over to his family. May he Rest in Peace. Amin.
Kaduna State Governor, Patrick Yakowa and immediate-past National Security Adviser, Andrew Azazi are dead. They died Saturday afternoon when the naval helicopter conveying them from the burial of the father of Oronto Douglas, the Special Adviser on Research and Documentation to President Jonathan, crashed in the creeks of Bayelsa State.
He was spotted yesterday at the 2012 Holy Ghost Congress held by Redeemed Church in Redemption Camp. He said he was there to pray for Nigeria. Even if he was not spotted we definitely felt his presence in Lagos with all the traffic he caused with his security details. Imagine blocking the road from Marina to Lagos-Ibadan Expressway when he was coming from the Airport and going straight to camp.

A Nigerian nurse has been found guilty of manslaughter after causing a baby's death by botching his circumcision.
Grace Adeleye, 67, carried out the procedure on four-week-old Goodluck Caubergs at an address in Chadderton, Oldham, in April 2010.

14 December 2012 morning: The suspect, widely reported to be 20-year-old Adam Lanza, shot and killed his mother Nancy Lanza at their home in Yogananda Street in Newtown, an affluent town of 27,000 people about 60 miles northeast of New York City. It is still not clear why Lanza killed his mother, who the Associated Press news agency reported had divorced Lanza's father Peter four years ago. A parent told AP that Nancy Lanza was a substitute teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School, but this is not confirmed.
Nigeria’s Lagos State Government and the Lekki Concession Company have jointly announced a deferment of the commencement of tolling at the second toll gate on the Eti Osa –Lekki- Epe Expressway.
The announcement was made today, 48 hours to the beginning of another toll regime on the yet-to- be completed express way. They said they were reviewing this in the spirit of Christmas. Thank you BRF but we think a complete review of the "levy" charged should be considered. In the end the people would revolt against anything ACN. So BRF and his cronies should park well. Shior.
