Horror!!! Student Murders Teacher,Then Takes Selfie Near Corpse(Graphic Photos)

A Teacher in Moscow,Russia who obviously went to his day job most likely didn’t have any premonition he would end up dead today,gruesomely murdered by one of his students.

The teacher Mr Sergey Danilov was hacked to death by his student,Andrey Emelyanenkov.  Andrey  had a dispute with his Basic Safety teacher, Sergey Danilov this morning. He then waited for the school break between lessons to attack. As soon as other students left the class, Andrey brought out the knife and launched the attack.

As the teacher lay in a pool of his blood, the unrepentant student took photos of the dead body and posted it online. But he did not stop there. He went on to commit suicide seconds after he posted the photo.

When the police arrived, they found a knife and a chainsaw next to the bodies of Andrey and his teacher.

See the graphic photos below.

EFCC Alleges Cabal Desperate To Frame Its Chairman

In a piece by Punch online news portal,the Spokesman of EFFC,Mr Wilson Uwujaren has hinted of a plot by  a cabal to buy choice properties abroad in the name of its chairman in a desperate bid to frame its chairman and taint him thereby.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has raised the alarm over an alleged plot to frame its Acting Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, with ownership of assets abroad.

The spokesman for the commission, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, said in a statement on Wednesday that “shadowy interests at the receiving end” of the agency’s anti-corruption campaign were behind the alleged scheme.

“Those behind the plot, which is believed to be part of a grand design to discredit the anti-graft czar, have allegedly finalised plans to name Magu as the owner of choice properties in exotic locations abroad.

“The commission has information that the desperate cabal could take their gambit to the ridiculous extent of purchasing properties and registering them in the name of Ibrahim Magu to make the plot believable.

“They are also prepared to sponsor some political hirelings who would come out openly to claim they have information about the property acquisitions.”

According to him, the alleged plot is aimed at tainting the “unblemished integrity” of Magu to make him an object of public ridicule.

“The commission, however, wishes to alert the public that Magu has no interest in any property whatsoever outside Nigeria.

“He has neither bought a house anywhere outside Nigeria nor commissioned any person or corporate body to acquire property in his name or any name remotely linked to him.

“The latest plot is coming many months after the commission similarly raised alarm over plots by some interests to pay humongous sums into Magu’s accounts with a view to releasing the information as evidence he had been compromised.”

The EFCC spokesman quoted Magu as saying that the schemes would never make him lose focus in his assignment to defeat corruption in the country.

“They can only irritate me, but they can’t stop me because all men of goodwill in this country know the sacrifices that we are making to improve the fortunes of our nation.

“Those who assume that I have properties abroad, can go and claim them,” Magu was quoted as saying.

President Trump Most Likely To Cancel DV Lottery Program

Following the terrorist attack in New York on Tuesday,in which an Uzbek immigrant to the U.S.,Mr Sayfullo Saipov rented a truck and used the said truck to knock down pedestrians,President Trump has lashed out  at the diversity visa lottery program and has threatened to cancel it. The Uzbek immigrant came to the U.S. via the DV Lottery Program.

Speaking on CNN,he said   “I am, today, starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program,” Trump said, seated next to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. “I am going to ask Congress to immediately initiate work to get rid of this program, diversity lottery, diversity lottery. Sounds nice, it is not nice, it is not good. It hasn’t been good and we have been against it.”
He added: “We’re going to quickly as possible get rid of chain migration and move to a merit-based system.”
Trump added that based on preliminary information, the attacker in New York “was the point of contact, the primary point of contact for, and this is primarily, 23 people, that came in or potentially came in with him and that is not acceptable”.

Did Unilag Really Admit Student Who Scored Zero In Post-UTME?

It appears zero  is the new score required now for admission into one of the prestigious universities in Nigeria. It has emerged that a student who scored zero in the post-utme screening exercise of University of Lagos was admitted on merit. The Course of Study has not yet emerged, but we are hoping this is not true.

Else Unilag owes the Nigerian public an explanation over its admission policy,as a publicly funded institution. Here is a screen shot of the purported admission list-
