'How I Survived Kano Central Mosque Blast' - 75-Year Old (PHOTO)

A 75-year-old sur­vivor of the No­vember 28 mul­tiple bomb explosions in Kano, Alhaji Mo­hammed Isa Tiga, yes­terday gave a blood­chilling account of the attack that rocked the city’s Central Mosque, saying he survived by Allah’s grace.

Speaking to Sunday Sun at the Accident and Emergency Unit of the Abdullahi Wase Specialist (Nassarawa) Hospital, the frail-looking man recount­ed that those responsible for the blasts came in a Toyota Sienna space wag­on just as the Jumat prayers were about to start. He recalled seeing three of them, adding that while two sat at the back of the vehicle, only one was seat­ed at the front.
According to him, as soon as they arrived, they stepped out of the car like normal worshippers and looked every bit like wor­shippers until they began to op­erate.
“I was close by. I saw the three of them alight from the car. A few min­utes after they walked away from the vehicle, the bombs ex­ploded,”
He recalled that confusion ensued. “As peo­ple tried to run away, the young men pulled out their guns and were shooting at those struggling to escape from the blast.”
Isa Tiga suf­fered injuries in the confu­sion, stressing that his sur­vival was a miracle.He could not say what eventually happened to the three men.

Photos: Pope Prays In Istanbul Mosque In New Outreach

Pope Francis has taken part in a Muslim prayer alongside the Grand Mufti of Istanbul on the second leg of his three-day visit to Turkey. Francis stood on Saturday morning with his head bowed and hands clasped in front of him in a two minutes of silent prayer inside the 17th-century Sultan Ahmet mosque, aiming to show respect for Islam and encourage stronger ties between the two faiths.
"May God accept it," Rahmi Yaran, the Grand Mufti of Istanbul told the pope at the end of the prayer.
A group of school children waving Turkish and Vatican flags chanted "Long live Pope Francis" as the pope cheerfully left the mosque. See More photos below:

'I’m suffering for not stopping Tambuwal from emerging Speaker' - President Jonathan

When politicians want to deceive the people they throw up sentiments. Why not appoint a Yoruba SGF if the House of Reps members didn't elect a Yoruba Speaker? Politicians and their ways!

President Goodluck Jonathan says he regrets his inability to have a South West politician as Speaker of the House of Representatives in 2011. Speaking at a Yoruba Unity Summit at the Obafemi Awolowo Uni, Ile-Ife, Jonathan attributed his failure to the selfishness of some Yoruba leaders.

In 2011, Aminu Tambuwal, who is from the Northwest, had defeated Mulikat Akande, a Yoruba from the South West, to emerge the House Speaker.

Now, President Jonathan is claiming that he is suffering from that decision by the House:
“One of the problems I faced in the National Assembly is that I felt the right thing should be done because our party, the PDP, has a formula.”

“We have six geo-political zones in the country and when the President emerges from one of the geo-political zones, the Vice-President emerges from another geo-political zone, the rest core offices, the Senate President, the Speaker, Secretary to Federal Government, the chairman of the party must come from different geo-political zones.

“The idea is that, whenever we are distributing board positions and some of these appointments, whenever we are appointing ministers, all these people sit to take decisions. In that case we want all the geo-political zones to be in the inner caucus that take critical decisions.

“The last time, it was difficult for me because I insisted that the Southwest must get the Speaker. Of course, I couldn’t go through with it because some of us within the Southwest didn’t want it, based on some personal reasons. I am still suffering from that till today.”

Khloe Kardashian's family wants her to dump French Montana

Khloe K's family have reportedly told her to leave French Montana because he's cheating on her. 
From TMZ
Khloe Kardashian needs to run for the hills -- away from French Montana -- and that's exactly what her family told her during a heart-to-heart talk Wednesday.
Sources familiar with the situation tell us ... the Kardashians believe French has been unfaithful to Khloe, and their evidence centers around his recent trip to Dubai.
We're told the family believes French was hooking up with a very pretty woman during the trip, and tried to use Kim as a cover. We know they told Khloe French sought out Kim during the trip so Khloe would see pics of the 2 of them and think he was just hanging with her sis ... nothing nefarious.
We're told the Kardashians say French's plan unraveled when Kim came home and told Khloe she was literally with French 10 seconds here and there. The family is convinced he used Kim to deceive Khloe.

Over 200 killed in the bomb blast at Kano Central Mosque yesterday

Over 200 people were reportedly killed in the bomb blast that occurred yesterday afternoon at the Kano Central Mosque where the Emir of Kano usually leads prayers. Some eye-witnesses and rescue officials put the figure at 300, making it one the deadliest bomb attacks in Nigeria.

According to eyewitnesses, three bombs went off one after the other at the 10,000 capacity Mosque during the Friday Jumat prayers. Two went off inside the Mosque, and one outside. And when people tried to flee the scene, gun men opened fire on worshipers. Many of the casualties were children who couldn't run as fast. Some were trampled to death in the mayhem that ensued.

When normalcy returned hours after the attack, the dead and wounded, said to be over 250, were taken to the Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital and the Nasarawa Hospital.

The Emir of Kano was out of the country when the incident occurred. He'd left the night before.

President Jonathan also cancelled his meeting with Nigerians entertainers at the Creative Industry event last night because of the blast.

Residents flee their villages after receiving letter from Boko Haram

A resident of the village, Modu Kaka who spoke with Sahara Reporters, said immediately they received the letter, thousands of residents fled.
"They had attacked other local government areas around us. So when we received threat letters from Boko Haram that they would attack us soon, we all had to flee for our lives. We heard what happened to people in Damasak where a similar threat was made and carried by Boko Haram.” he said
