Britain vows retaliation as Iran seizes one of its tankers in the Gulf, and releases another after boarding, in humiliating insult to the UK after the Royal Navy seized Iranian vessel

Iran Guards say they have confiscated a British tanker in Strait of Hormuz 
Iran has been warned it faces 'serious consequences' after the government held an emergency COBRA meeting following the seizure of two British oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz. Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt (pictured inet top) branded Tehran's actions as 'completely unacceptable' after heavily-armed gunships intercepted the Stena Impero (left) and the Medsar (inset bottom) after 4pm yesterday. The Medsar was released after several hours, although the owners of the Stena Impero have said they have had no response from the vessel or the 23 crew.

A Royal Navy warship raced to help a British oil tanker that was captured by Iran last night but arrived ten minutes too late, a defence source revealed today. 

HMS Montrose, which was patrolling the Persian Gulf, was forced to do a U-turn when it received orders to assist the UK-flagged Stena Impero, which had been seized by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard in the Strait of Hormuz.

Nnamdi Kanu To Tinubu: You've Disappointed, Disgraced The Noble Yoruba Ancestry

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, and Director of Radio Biafran, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has accused the National Leader of the All Progress Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, of spreading falsehood targeted against the Igbo race.

The IPOB leader alleged that the chieftain of Lagos politics’ intention is to rubbish the Igbo race because of his alleged selfish presidential ambition.

A statement personally signed by Mazi Kanu, and made available to newsmen by IPOB’ Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, titled “Tinubu stop spreading anti-Igbo falsehood” accused the APC National leader of greed, conceit and unbridled presidential political ambition.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s statement read, “Tinubu, you cannot sacrifice the blood of your brethren on the shrine of your greed, conceit and unbridled 2023 presidential political ambition.

“You have disappointed and disgraced the noble Yoruba ancestry, by allowing your self-centred avarice and ego to stifle the aspirations and destiny of your people.

“I must remind you today that your Fulani masters will never do for you what you are slavishly doing for them. You know in your heart of hearts that murderous Fulani herdsmen are culpable in the brutal murder of a Yoruba daughter and that Igbos had no hand in the Ore Highway Massacre.

“An influential Yoruba newspaper reported that nearby villagers, who are Yorubas, informed the police that the killer Fulani herdsmen have their base in a nearby forest.

“These are eye witness account from Yoruba people living in the surrounding areas where the tragic incident occurred. Or are you saying the villagers can no longer distinguish between a gun-wielding Fulani terrorist and an Igbo man?

“Your unguarded utterances only succeeded in doing more harm to the Fosaranti family, insulting the memory of their daughter and will be seen for what it is, an affront to the dignity of the Yoruba race. Do not behave like a Fulani Lackey!!!

“The fate of Afonja and loss of Illorin a Yoruba territory to the Fulani conquistadors in years gone by should have taught you and your likes a bitter historical lesson but it seems you are hell-bent on repeating the mistakes of the past.

'It is time for us to impeach this president': Democrat radical 'squad' of four minority females fires back - as Trump tells them AGAIN they can leave America if they don't like it

AOC and Ilhan Omar hit back after Trump tells them to leave America
The extraordinary row between Donald Trump and four ethnic minority Democrat Congresswomen dramatically escalated last night as they traded fresh insults in the wake of the President's claim that they should 'go back where they came from'. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her 'squad' fired back at Donald Trump last night, calling on the US House Democratic leadership to bring impeachment proceedings against him. 
But as the four Congresswomen held a joint press conference on Capitol Hill (centre), Trump fired off yet another tweet, claiming the Democrats had been 'forced to embrace' the four 'progressives' after initially 'trying to distance themselves' from them. Rep. Ilhan Omar, a frequent target of Trump's Twitter fury, said: 

'This is the agenda of a white nationalist. He would love nothing more than to divide our country based on race, religion, gender orientation or immigration status because this is the only way he knows he can prevent the solidarity of us working together across all of our differences.' While the four Congresswomen were speaking, Trump made his presence felt with a series of tweets (right), attempting to paint the group as the new face of the Democratic Party.

Ex-President Obasanjo's Open Letter To President Buhari, 2019 (Full Text)

I am constrained to write to you this open letter. I decided to make it an open letter because the issue is very weighty and must be greatly worrisome to all concerned Nigerians and that means all right-thinking Nigerians and those residents in Nigeria. Since the issue is of momentous concern to all well-meaning and all right-thinking Nigerians, it must be of great concern to you, and collective thinking and dialoguing is the best way of finding an appropriate and adequate solution to the problem. The contents of this letter, therefore, should be available to all those who can help in proffering effective solutions for the problem of insecurity in the land.

One of the spinoffs and accelerants is the misinformation and disinformation through the use of fake news. A number of articles, in recent days, have been attributed to me by some people who I believe may be seeking added credence and an attentive audience for their opinions and viewpoints. As you know very well, I will always boldly own what I say and disown what is put into my mouth. But the issue I am addressing here is very serious; it is the issue of life and death for all of us and for our dear country, Nigeria. This issue can no longer be ignored, treated with nonchalance, swept under the carpet or treated with cuddling glove.

No Body Can Defeat Fulanis In War - Prof Ango Abdullahi, Former VC ABU, Zaria

“Look, the Fulanis can defend themselves more than anyone else in this country. More than anyone else in this country, the Fulani man can always defend himself. Go and read the diary of Lord Lugard, who created this country.
Go and read what he said about the Fulanis. In fact, without our efforts to restrain the Fulanis, things would not have been easy for many communities.
No community can defend itself against the Fulanis if they want to fight. It is known sociologically and historically; nobody can fight them if they want to fight.
They are in the millions in West Africa and they can always mobilise themselves to defend their people anywhere in West Africa.
