Hackers Hits Apple iPhones, The Biggest Ever! Are You Affected?

Hackers have used a hi-tech computer virus to steal Apple account details from 225,000 iPhones in what is thought to be the biggest theft of its kind, metro.co.uk reports. The hack has hit 225,000 users from 18 countries including China, France, Russia, Japan, United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Germany, Australia, Israel, Italy, Spain, Singapore, and South Korea. The attack used malicious software (malware) called KeyRaider, which steals account details from infected iPhones, according to researchers Palo Alto Networks.

At least one user has seen their device locked and been presented with a ransom demand.

Taiwanese Student Guan-Hao Pan, Discovers A Guide To The Use And Choice Of Condoms

The Indian Council of Medical Research discovered that 20 per cent of condoms fail to work properly at all simply because they’re not the right size. A condom becomes much less effective if it is the wrong size, worn on the wrong side, or its tip is not squeezed when worn. It may cause pregnancy or/and sexually-transmitted diseases. Wrong Size Selection: Studies show that more than 60% of users choose a wrong size while shopping for condoms. In addition to discomfort, wrong size selection increases the risk of slippage and rupture. Wrong Use : The breakage rate can be increased by wrong use such as wearing the condom on the wrong side and failure to squeeze the teat end of the condom.  “Love Guide” condoms address these issues by introducing a new packaging system for conventional condoms. They come in five packages, each of a distinct diameter, such that holding the packages easily determines the right size. Also, each condom comes in a specially designed case with a rising tip, maki…

”Buhari Is President For The North” – Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has said President Mohammadu Buhari was operating as a  president of the Northern Nigeria only, describing steps taken by the president since May 29, 2015 as tainted in ethnic and tribal colouration, which is inimical to the unity of Nigeria. The governor, who descried what he called President Buhari’s “Nothernisation of Nigeria,” said “appointments made by the President so far negate the principle of federal character and it appears the unity in diversity of Nigeria is being taken for granted by the President.” According to a statement issued on Monday, by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said it was wrong for President Buhari to have made 31 major appointments and only seven will come from the South while 24 were from the North. He asked; “Under Buhari, are people from Southern Nigeria only meant to be hounded and harassed by anti-corruption agencies and the Department of State Secur…

Nigeria Is In Big Shit! Bayelsa Gubernatorial Poll: Tinubu Urges Sylva To Contest

Former governor of Lagos State and All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has called on Chief Timipre Sylva to contest the December 5, 2015 Governorship election in Bayelsa State. Tinubu also charged Bayelsans to ensure that Sylva becomes the next governor of the state in view of placing the state on the right path. “I want him to contest the governorship election because of his proven leadership qualities and our belief that he can bring change to the state” he said. Tinubu, who met Sylva at his Abuja home not only endorsed him as the party’s consensus candidate for the December 5, 2015 governorship election but commended him for his contributions to the development of the party in Nigeria, particularly Bayelsa State. You would recall, this is a man whom EFCC has confiscated and forced to forfeit billions of Bayelsa State stolen monies in cash and uncountable number of high profile property he acquire during his first tenure as governor.

Second Niger Bridge: Former Works Minister Disgraces Debt Ridden Oshiomhole With Pictorial Evidence

A former Minister of Works, Mr. Mike Onolememen, has denied the allegation by the Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, that the Goodluck Jonathan-administration paid the sum of N140bn to consultants for the construction of the Second Niger Bridge. Onolememen, who made the denial in a statement signed by his media aide, Mr. Tony Ikpasaja, made available toThe PUNCH on Thursday, accused the governor of misleading Nigerians with “wild and spurious” allegations. The statement noted that the Second Niger Bridge was a Public Private Partnership project being executed on the Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Transfer model at the cost of N108bn and that only N10bn, out of the refundable N30bn funding from Federal Government, was paid through the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme.  The statement reads, “The Federal Government of Nigeria, guided by the Transaction Adviser, Roughton International, agreed to provide a refundable Catalytic Funding of N30bn. By May 2015, N10bn Cat…

APC Lists N440bn Fraud Cases Against Jonathan Govt

The governing All Progressives Congress and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party on Sunday engaged in a war of words over the state of the economy as well as cases of alleged looting by the former President Goodluck Jonathan-led PDP administration.

In separate statements in Abuja, the APC and the PDP accused one another of economic mismanagement and of filtering away public finds.

In a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the APC said the party has uncovered a list of new cases of the insane looting of the treasury by some officials of the Jonathan’s administration, saying the corruption mess that characterised the administration was so pervasive that until it is cleaned, Nigeria will not be able to actualise its potential.

The party said those who would rather give comfort to the looters by dismissing the media exposure of looting cases as mere hell-raising should realise that no sane person can be silent in the face of what was unfolding as the…

President Uhuru Kenyatta, Took Worshippers By Surprise On Sunday!

Worshippers at the Holy Ghost Cathedral on Nkrumah Road, Mombasa, were surprised when President Uhuru Kenyatta quietly joined them for the 9.15am mass yesterday. Clad in a simple, blue short-sleeved shirt and jeans, the President alighted from his vehicle and walked into the church. He arrived in a convoy of four vehicles and did not have his security detail and a press team.  When he joined other worshippers at the entrance, one of them recognised him and could not hide her surprise. She stopped and shouted, alerting the rest: “President yule....ndiye huyu anaingia kanisani. Amekuja vipi, lakini hatukumwona” (There is the President. He is entering the church. But how did he arrive and we did not see him?) Looking relaxed and jovial, the President and Nyali MP Hezron Awiti, who had also just arrived for the service, walked together into the church and sat in the front row. Before the service started, Father Robert Omondi announced the President’s and Mr Awiti’s presence, amid loud cl…

EFCC Sets Up Four-Man Panel On Diezani

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has commenced a full investigation into the activities of the immediate past Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.

It was learnt on Sunday that the commission constituted a four-member committee of crack detectives to probe all the NNPC accounts which were supervised by the former minister.

It was learnt that the committee was led by a Superintendent of Police, who was seconded to the commission.

Investigations revealed that the other three members of the committee were pioneer civilian operatives of the commission with high capacity for investigation.

Sunday PUNCH had on Sunday reported that the ongoing probe of the immediate-past administration by President Muhammadu Buhari was to beam its searchlight on the alleged purchase of three mobile stages, costing $6.9m, by former President Goodluck Jonathan and two of his officials.

According to a document, which was obtained f…

STILL ON RELIGION; Church Members Chases Pastor From Oshodi Church For Impregnating Maid

There was pandemonium on Sunday at the United Methodist Church, Mafoluku, in the Oshodi area of Lagos as members of the church chased away their pasto for allegedly impregnating his housemaid, punchng.com reports.  It was learnt that the pastor, Barkuma Andrew, was stopped from leading the church seven months ago when the housemaid, who was also a member of the church, Grace, had complications after aborting the pregnancy. Andrew had lived with his wife, children, wife’s cousin, Favour, and Grace in a three-bedroomed flat on the church premises before the incident. It was gathered that the members had petitioned the Central Conference of the church in Taraba State to investigate the alleged accusation. Then sought the service of another pastor three weeks ago when the district reportedly failed to probe Andrew.  At 10 am on Sunday, members of the church showed up for Sunday service only to see that Andrew and some “unknown” people had commenced the service. This angered the congregat…

Go And Defend Yourself, Gov. Nyesom Wike Tells Amaechi

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has reacted to Amaechi's decision not to appear before a panel of Inquiry. The Governor called on Amaechi, to go and defend himself before the judicial commission of inquiry sitting in the state. Gov. Wike said that it was wrong for the former governor to describe the commission as illegal even when the court had ruled that the panel was in order.  The governor, who spoke through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Opunabo Inko-Tariah, said he would not take issues with the former governor over the setting up of the judicial commission of inquiry.  It is necessary for Amaechi to defend himself on certain issues concerning how the state was managed during his tenure. The Incumbent Governor explained that Ameachi was put to shame when the court pronounced that nothing was wrong with the setting up of a judicial commission of inquiry to probe the immediate past administration. He said, "It is laughable that Amaechi would call a…

Kanye West Sunday night announced he will be running for US Presidency in 2020. Kanye made the announcement while receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, an accolade previously awarded to superstars like Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Madonna and The Beatles throughout the show's more than 20-year tenure, organised by the MTV Video Music Awards. Look, don't underrate Mr West, he just may mean it, tmz.com wrote. Mr West also used the opportunity to apologize to Taylor Swift for the infamous 2009 VMAs Best Female Video Award banter that set the duo apart for years. He said; "If  I had to do it all over again, what would I have done? Would I have worn a leather shirt? Would I have drank half a bottle of Hennessy and gave the rest of it to the audience...? If I had a daughter at that time would I have gone on stage and grabbed the microphone from someone else's?" Prior to Kanye West taking the stage, Taylor Swift recounted the incident and s…

Watch Video Of China's Sexual Revolution, Extraordinary People Discovery & Documentary

Revolution and its sizzling Economic Revolution. But you haven't heard about its other great social upheaval - the Chinese Sexual Revolution - and like everything in that country it's happening at warp speed. It's China's version of the 60s revolution - on steroids. China's Sexual Revolution is the world's first glimpse - often using secret cameras - into this forbidden new China. It's a surprising portrait of the Chinese today: the new free love generation that's left their parents in shock; the booming sex industry that's creating an HIV crisis; the new generation of career women and feminists that suddenly wants it all - while millions of men feel left out. This long untold story goes back to the days of Chairman Mao, who made sexuality a great taboo. He ordered everyone to wear unisexual Mao suits, and forbid women from wearing sexy clothing, getting stylish haircuts, or even wearing make-up. Men and women were expected to be comrades - not lov…

A MUST READ! There’s An ‘influx’ Of Boko Haram Into Lagos - DSS

There is a “sudden influx” of Boko Haram members in Lagos, while the sect’s cells are now present in Plateau, Gombe and Enugu states as well, the department of state services (DSS) revealed on Sunday.

According to the service, the spread of the insurgent group to the south is due to the intense pressure being put on them in the northeast of the country.

The state police also revealed that some of the sect’s commanders had been rounded up in Lagos and Enugu.
“In line with the Department of State Services’ (DSS) re-strategised counter-terrorism measures to combat the menace of the Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria, the service has continued to make significant breakthroughs in this direction,” it said through Tony Opuiyo, its acting spokesman.

“This followed the rounding-up of notable commanders and frontline members of the notorious group from different parts of the country. It should be noted that the group’s new pattern of movement and spread is necessitated by the pressure being put on …

Captain Michael Gorhum Of San Antonio Police Department Who Killed Himself Over Ashley Madison's Leak Was Not In The List After All!

A police officer who committed suicide after being linked to the Ashley Madison leak was not a user, it has been revealed. It is believed that Captain Michael Gorhum, who was found dead with gunshot wounds in a church car park, may actually have been the victim of a smear campaign by an anti-police blog. Gorhum’s San Antonio Police email address was published in a list of supposed Ashley Madison users on website Cop Block which is known for publishing content heavily critical of police, metro.co.uk reports.

But an investigation by MailOnline disclose that his email address is not in the leaked database of Ashley Madison which helps arrange extra marital affairs. In fact it was only published on August 20 on one obscure chat forum before being repeated later that day by Cop Block, a website which purports to highlight police 'abuse and corruption', and which is run by an anarchist who calls himself 'Ademo Freeman'.
His real name is Adam Mueller and the 33-year-old live…

Gov. Wike Is Also Corrupt, Won’t Appear Before Probe Panel - Amaechi

Former Rivers State, Gov. Rotimi Amaechi spoke, yesterday, in Port Harcourt, while addressing his loyalists as he arrived from Abuja to attend a church program. In his statement, while answering questions concerning the panel setup by the state government to probe his administration, he pointed out that, Gov Wike is 'also corrupt' and that he has documents to which to indict Governor Wike.

Rotimi Amaechi also used the opportunity to express his unwillingness never to appear before  the Justice  George Omereji Commission of Inquiry investigating alleged sale of  the  assets of the state by his government, insisting that the establishment of the commission did not comply with constitutional provisions, that he will only appear before a properly constituted commission in the state.
In his words:
“I have been listening while in Abuja to  Nyesom  Wike accusing me of corruption and I laugh. Even Nyesom Wike knows that I don’t like money, he knows that”. “The pressure Wike is putting…

Appointments: Buhari, APC Move To Pacify S’east, Lets Watch And See!

There were indications on Saturday that President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress had begun moves to compensate the South-East for not getting any appointments so far in the current administration.

SUNDAY PUNCH reliably gathered that some states in the geopolitical zone might get more than one ministerial slot.

The Presidency and the APC sources, who spoke to SUNDAY PUNCH on condition of anonymity, also justified the appointments made by Buhari on Thursday.

A top member of the party said the President was not unmindful of criticisms that greeted the alleged lopsided appointments.

He said, “The President has assured us that all zones that have not been represented in the appointments he has made so far will be compensated.

“For example, some states in the South-East may get more than one ministerial slots. The President is going to make board and ambassadorial appointments. All zones, including the South-East, will be represented in this government.”

Prominent Nigerians a…

Twitter Angry That Amal Clooney Was Addressed As Actor's Wife & Not As A Leading Human Right Lawyer

This is what she was and still is, even though she is married to actor George Clooney. Amal Clooney who is known in London circles as a leading human right lawyer represented Canadian national Mohammed Fahny, one of the Aljazeera journalists sentenced to three years in prison yesterday, describing her, AP news agency addressed her with her later associate as against what she has been known for all her life. However, those who knew Amal before now would not blame Associated Press {AP}, because it is her later nomenclature that has made her more popular and added global celebrity to her accolades than ever. Though AP did address her in their later news update as a Human rights Lawyer. But what's the qualm about that?

‘I Have The World’s Longest Penis And It Scares Women Off’

Having a very long penis is usually like having a big butty. But the difference is that there is no craze about getting to have one, unlike the case of big butty. In case you are gearing to have penis elongation, please read this story. According to metro.co.uk, a man who claims to have the world’s longest penis now says he is living in isolation and sex starved. Poor Roberto Esquivel Cabrera isn’t happy about it. Far from fighting off the women, he claims his 18.9in member is scaring them away, just like the one reported by uk daily mail in 2012. He also thinks it stops him from holding down a proper job, and wants to be registered as disabled. But despite the huge discomfort it causes him, he wants the whole world to know about it, and has called for his penis to be recognised by the Guinness Book of Records. Speaking about his sorry predicament, he said: ‘Look where it is, it goes far below the knees.‘I cannot do anything, I cannot work, and I am a disabled so I want authorities t…

Australia Jailed Man For 4 Months For Possession Of Narcotics Only To Realise It Was Salt

It is only if you have not encountered the Australian Boarder Agency or haven't watched them in action, you will not realize how hard they go on people if they are suspected of possession of any kind {you Know what I mean}.  In short, the guys are a no-nonsense group of folks who are ready to throw you into prison without a formal examination of evidence by a judge or jury.  But just as they thought they have got it all right, they goofed. A man was jailed by Australian police who thought they found crystal meth in his car. He was imprisoned for four months while the ‘meth’ was subjected to forensic tests. It wasn’t methylamphetamine, it was salt. Epsom salt, to be exact, metro.co.uk reports. Charges were dropped and the man, from Queensland, Australia, was freed. His lawyer, Travis George claims the lengthy detention period was probably due to his client’s previous convictions. Queensland’s Health, Forensic and Scientific Services have faced a backlash after alleged delays in th…

Amaechi In A Twist Of Fate, Seeks Protection In The Same Courts He Shut Down

Following the lost of his highly anticipated political appointment as the secretary to the government of the federation, which was perceived to have been caused by the revelations of huge level of corruption that characterized his administration as Rivers governor, Rotimi Amaech seems to be running helter-skelter looking to put a spanner in the wheels of the commission of inquiry setup to probe his administration.  In what could be described as a twist of fate, the same court the former governor of Rivers State, Chibuike Amaechi, shut down for over a year following his feud with the National Judicial Council had cause to decide his suit against the commission of inquiry to probe his administration last week, Davidson Iriekpen writes

While in power, if anyone had told him it would happen so soon, he would have doubted it. But this was what played out last week when the suit the former Governor of Rivers State, Chibuike Amaechi, filed to stop the probe his administration at the state Hi…

Two Indian Sisters To Be Raped As Punishment After Their Brother Ran Off With Married Woman

Two sisters have been sentenced to be raped as punishment after their brother ran off with a married woman. An unelected all-male village council in India also ordered that 23-year-old Meenakshi Kumari and her 15-year-old sister are paraded naked with blackened faces.

The horrific order was revealed by Amnesty International which said the sisters and their family have fled their village in the Baghpat district, just outside of Delhi.

According to news site Zee Media, the sisters' brother Ravi fell in love with a girl from the Jat caste, a higher social caste than Ravi and his family, who are Dalit, once known as the 'untouchables', who are at the bottom of India's caste system.

The Jat woman's family married her off to someone else in February but she later escaped and eloped with Ravi in March.

As punishment, on July 31 a village council decided Ravi's sisters should be raped to avenge his actions.

Since the family fled their village their home has been ransa…

How Nigeria Lost N2.5b To Fake Ceasefire Brokered By Presidential Aides In Chad

There were indications last night that the claimed enthusiasm by the leadership of the Boko Haram sect with the Nigerian Government was not holding as planned.

Vanguard learnt from credible sources close to both the government and the terrorist group that no progress was being made in the expected dialogue because no identifiable representative of the group had shown up for the planned discussion with the federal government.
While there were claims lately that the terrorist group was angling for peace talks with the President Buhari Government, information at the disposal of Saturday Vanguard indicate that the Federal Government was yet to pinpoint any credible person from the group to begin negotiations with.

Competent sources said that those who see themselves as the bonafide leaders of the group were uncomfortable with the claim by a foreign leader that had been appointed for the group when they were in charge.
A source who has been close to previous failed
negotiations with the group,…

Obasanjo, A Liar, Economic Illiterate – Soyinka

The Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has said that he has no respect for Obasanjo, who he
described as an indescribable liar.
Soyinka carpeted the former president on Friday
night when he was responding to questions during a programme tagged: ‘An evening with Wole Soyinka’, organised by Globacom.
Asked to respond to Obasanjo’s assessment of him in the former president’s book titled ‘My Watch’, where he notes that Soyinka is good at hunting and wines but a political illiterate, Soyinka said that he was hardly bothered because he believed that Obasanjo was a liar.
Soyinka said, “Obasanjo is entitled to his opinion.
But the question is: ‘Who respects the opinion of
a liar?’
I can spend the whole night proving that he is a liar. Obasanjo was once described by an economist, the late Prof Ojetunji Aboyade, as an economic illiterate. They nearly ‘went into blow’ that night. It was Prof. Mabogunje who separated them.
“So, if an economic illiterate calls somebody a
political illiterate, no problem a…
