To many observers of the tasking search for the missing Malaysian Airplane, countries which have devoted time, craft, ships and finance to this search may actually be growing weary. Or perhaps, the Malaysian authorities were just tired of keeping the relations of the passengers of the MH370 jet in suspense.
Two days ago, the Airline authority told the weary waiting family members of the missing passengers, and the media that the plane had crashed into the Southern part of the India Ocean. His words were: "We have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived,"

This did not obviously go down well with the listeners. Not that they expected to have their relations back alive, but, the manner in which the conclusion was reached left their hearts more miserable.

One relative of a passenger expressed it this way, "If you find something: OK, we accept, but nothing -- just from the data, just from analysis?"

Another, Bimal Sharma, an Indian man whose sister Chandrika was on the plane, said, "I suppose I want to see something from the seas. I don't know why I just want to see some debris off the aircraft and the black box to know what exactly happened because there are too many unanswered questions."

Also, China, who has more citizens in the ill-fated aircraft, was not satisfied with the Malaysian conclusion. They questioned both the Prime Minister and the Airline Authorities, on why they concluded thus, without concrete evidence.

Search was suspended yesterday due to bad weather, but As at today, the search teams have resumed work, and "new satellite images show 122 objects floating in the southern Indian Ocean, near other sightings that may be related to MH 370". The search continues, and it is hope that tangible evidence would be found.

The Malaysia Airlines and the Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak have come to a conclusion that the missing Flight 370 had crashed into “the middle of the Indian Ocean west of Perth. This is a remote location far from any possible landing sites,” The minister also said the 239 passengers are all dead. The announcement was made today,  Monday based on the new satellite data

Families of the "dead" passengers broke down in tears as their hope of seeing their loved ones was dashed.

 “It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, Flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.”

“Malaysia Airlines deeply regrets that we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived,” the airline said.

The search has recently been concentrated in the southern Indian Ocean, where Chinese and French satellites have pointed to evidence of possible debris from the plane, though search efforts have yet to find any of the actual debris.

It is still hoped that by tomorrow, actual debris would be located and the Prime Minister of Malaysia promises to give more details about the crash.

Could this be the end of the search? Many questions remain unanswered. Where are the bodies? How did it happen? Was there a terrorist angle to it? We wait for the underwater search teams to bring us their findings.

Paul Okoye and Anita Isama had their traditional wedding today at Port Harcourt, Rivers State. It was well attended by entertainment stars and dignitaries. Though we couldn't get all the photos, the following are among those who graced the ocassion: Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Funke Akindele, Kenny Ogungbe, D’banj, Ini Edo, Pasuma, Sound Sultan, Ikechukwu, DJ Jimmy Jatt, Phyno, Bez, Darey, Olisa Adibua, Mike Ezeruonye, GMD of Diamond Bank, Mazi (Dr.) Alex Otti, Lola Omotayo-Okoye, Susan Peters, Monalisa Chinda, 2shotz, Phyno, Ejike Asiegbu, Banky W, Naeto C, Uti Nwchukwu, AY, Majid Michel, Uche Jombo, Ebube Nwagbo, Kanayo O. Kanayo (KOK), Mr. Ibu, Minister of Culture, Obong Edem Duke, Solid Star, MI, and many more.

His twin brother, Peter Okoye, was not active in the whole activity, and when he was asked why, he said he was paying back what Paul did during his own wedding. He said, “Like our song, ‘Do Me,’ says, I’m only repaying Paul for what he did during my own wedding. He was very busy moving up and down, and that’s the same thing I’m doing; being busy.”

Further more, he said, “I dey beef Paul o. I named my son, Nonso after him, but he didn’t give his son my native name..." We hope that was a joke.

All the same, we wish them happy married life which they have been living for some years already.


 He has a Muslim background. Many of his friends and relatives are still Muslims.  He is the General Overseer of Later Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare. 

His revelation came after he was accused of harbouring hatred for Islam after he challenged Justice Kutigi not to use arabic to start the on going National Conference, as the chair:  “Mr. Chairman, yesterday you said something at the inauguration of the Conference and I did not understand. Today again, you said it. I think you should pray in the way all of us understand because if I stand up and say, ‘Praise the Lord somebody,’ we will turn this place into a church service.”
Here are his words on his Muslim connections:

“If I hate Muslims, I would not have accepted to be a running mate to a Muslim in the last presidential election. I was born and raised a Muslim. I’m well versed in the Quoran having graduated from Islamic school on April 16, 1967.

“Many of my relatives are still Muslims. My older cousin was recently made the Are Adinni Musulumi of Egbaland and my family was well represented at the ceremony.

“I have no Islamophobia of any kind. Even in my businesses, I employ Muslims and non-Muslims and even those who don’t believe. I was born in the South but raised in Sokoto. My father was known as Sani Arewa and that is what is written on his tombstone. My uncle was Sarki Yoruba in the Sultan’s palace.

“So, you can see that I’m in no position to hate Muslims. All I’m saying is that we should be fair to one another. God created only one race. And that is the human race. We should not let religion or tribes to divide us.”


 She may be as busy as a bee, and an international celebrity too, but Miss-K still manages to find time to fulfill her duties as Goodwill Ambassador.
The Artist,Model and humanitarian, met the Ghanaian State Minister Honorable Rachid Pelpuo at the Nabarro Offices yesterday in London, UK.

Suitably dressed in a subdued cream and black dress with black shoes,Miss-K was one of the VIP guests who attended the private Ghana UK Investment summit,where they spoke about investing in Ghana.
The duo spoke about Miss-K's humanitarian role, one which she has held since 2009.
Though she has been quite drawn to Africa during those past few years, it was a visit to Nigeria (where she shot her MTN billboard campaign) that changed her life.
The golden beauty recently credited doing 'normal things' during international women day and maintaining a balance between normality and her celebrity life keeping her from living a shallow life.

She said: 'Without the balance of doing things that actually matter in the world -- and being part of the real world -- then I would have been left in a bubble.'That would have felt very empty and I probably would have just had a very shallow, horrible life.'

She added: 'I have a real view of the real world. I'm very touched and very moved by people and what they overcome.
'They have always reminded me to just wake up in the morning and be grateful for being alive and healthy. Nothing else matters.'

Before getting caught by the paparazzi when leaving the building, Miss-K also took the opportunity to mingle with friends and special guests including, friend and brother of the late Gani Fawehinmi and President of Miss Commonwealth Pageant, Dr Shola Fawehinmi (pictured below) and Cameroonian Mogul Gaspary!

Confusion seems to be setting in as the mysterious missing plane is still a matter of international concern for days now. Any useful information could be the key at the moment. Here is what the various search teams are saying:

- US investigators examining whether flight was taken to another location
Officials suspect data from engines suggests plane flew total of five hours

- Counter-terrorism officials concerned pilot or someone else turned off transponders

- Four more hours of flight time would allow the plane to fly 2,200 nautical miles, That would put Pakistan and the Arabian Sea within reach

- Malaysia Airlines previously said the Rolls-Royce Trent engines stopped transmitting monitoring signals when contact with the plane was lost.

- On Wednesday the Chinese government satellite imagery was released which showed the 'suspected crash  site' of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370.

- Blurry images appeared to show three large pieces of debris - the largest of which is 78-feet by 72-feet.

- Vietnamese and Malaysian aviation chiefs ruled this out and said no plane debris was found at spot shown by China's satellite images.

Bottom line, we have not found this plane, and no dead bodies or clear debris to prove it crashed. The Search Continues.

A Malaysian witch doctor tries his "juju" to locate the missing Malaysian Jet. He was angered by the lack of success in all the efforts being made using technology and all known modern equipment. The  well-known Malaysian (shaman)/witch doctor Ibrahim Mat Zin (centre on photo) used  two coconuts  to perform his ritual. He also used a fish hook and bamboo binoculars to 'locate' the missing plane.

At the end of his ritual, which he performed at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Shaman Ibrahim Mat Zin, who averred his vision turned "black", came up with the location of the missing plane:  "The plane is either still in the air or had crashed in the sea".

Has this man added anything to the search since Saturday?


We hear that the Defense Minister, Aliyu Gusau, has resigned.

The Defense Minister complained about insubordination from the Senior Military Officers, who refused to have a joint meeting with him and his deputy, Musikilu Obanikoro, yesterday. 

According to sources at the ministry of Defense, Gusau had been kept waiting for two days after he'd summoned them to a meeting, "with different military service chiefs making excuses for their inability to meet him. So yesterday, after Mr. Gusau and Mr. Obanikoro had waited for many hours,  the Chief of Defense Staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh, appeared, and not with others but alone. The source said that,  “When Air Marshal Badeh showed up, the Minister of Defense told him he was expecting all the chiefs of staff within the military, but Badeh reportedly told him there was no need.”  It appeared Badeh was willing to meet with the minister alone, and stated that this was the  "collective decision of military officers in the country."

The junior minister of defense, Mr. Obanikoro, tried to intervene but was told to “shut up”,  by Badeh. The report explained that Air Marshal Badeh called Senator Obanikoro a ‘small boy’ and "warned him that the military was not going to be taking orders anymore from bloody civilians like him.”

At the end of the day, the infuriated Defense Minister told his secretary to write his resignation letter, and even when the President visited him last night to dissuade him, Gusau seemed to have stood his ground. In fact, it is reported that Gusau refused to see the President. David Mark was also earlier said to have tried to persuade Aliyu Gusau to no avail.

We are looking for more details.
