Former Real Madrid, Inter and Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has labelled Brazil's Ronaldo da Lima as the greatest player he has ever seen, dismissing former protege and countryman, Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona legend, Lionel Messi.

                                                                       
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the greatest players of the last decade, with ten Ballon d'ors and 11 champions league titles between them, which is ahead of what the Brazilian Ronaldo achieved- but Mourinho who coached Ronaldo as an assistant coach under Bobby Robson at Barcelona in 1997, believes he is far ahead of Cristiano and Messi in terms of talent.
                                             
         
Mourinho, who coached Cristiano Ronaldo at Madrid and was sacked by Manchester United 10 months ago says he remains confounded by a goal the Brazilian scored for Barca against PSG in Rotterdam in 1997, calling it 'awesome'.'
"When he was at Barcelona with Bobby Robson, I realised that he was the best player I'd ever seen take to the field,' said Mourinho,  told LiveScore 
'Injuries killed a career that could have been even more incredible, but the talent that that 19-year-old boy had was something incredible.  
'Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi have had longer careers. They have remained at the top every day for 15 years.
'However, if we are talking strictly about talent and skill, nobody surpasses Ronaldo


British actress, Naomie Harris has opened up about being sexually assaulted by a famous actor during an audition in her mid-20s.

The Bond star, 43, in a candid interview with The Guardian, where she spoke about her various film roles and her upcoming part in Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond, revealed that the unnamed actor groped her while they read their lines during the audition.

During the lengthy interview, Naomie, 43, said the 'shocking' incident took place in front of both the movie's director and casting director and they failed to nothing because the actor 'was and is a huge star'.

“I was in an audition and he put his hand up my skirt. What was so shocking about it was the casting director was there and the director, and of course no one said anything at all because he was — he is — such a huge star,” she revealed.

The Oscar-nominated actress also said the #MeToo movement has been a game-changer and “men know that they absolutely cannot get away with things now that they wouldn’t even have thought about before,” she said.






Dele Agekameh, a well-regarded Nigerian journalist and writer, has passed on at the age of 60.  

Late Agekameh, a columnist for Premium Times and the Nation newspaper, passed on Friday night in Lagos after battling renal disorder for seven years. 

His first son, Fabian, a lawyer, confirmed the development saying his father was another victim of Nigeria’s poor health system that has killed many.
“He first discovered his kidney problem sometime in 2010. At the time, he was hypertensive and had a mild case of diabetes. He went to India in 2012 for a surgery to remove some kidney stones, which was successful. However, he was advised that he might need a kidney transplant as a lasting solution.  
“Later in 2012, he had to begin dialysis, which he did at least two times a week and three times when he could manage it. That routine became part of his life until he passed away by 9:05 pm on Friday, 11th of October.  
“The previous week, he went to Babcock University Teaching Hospital (BUTH) concerning complications with blood flow during his dialysis sessions, which had been an issue for some time. He had a follow-up visit at BUTH on Wednesday, two days before he passed, during which a minor procedure was performed and he was informed of the need for surgery to clear a blockage around his neck area.  
“On the morning of Friday the 11th, he proceeded to Kidney Solutions, off Adeniyi Jones in Ikeja as usual, but there was difficulty hooking him up to the dialysis machines again. A surgeon from Lagos University Teaching Hospital who had seen him in the past was summoned immediately and he performed what was considered a minor procedure at the dialysis centre before he advised that dialysis must still take place. About one hour into the session, he became too weak and medication was administered, but his blood pressure remained low.  
“According to his assistant who was with him, around 5 pm, the decision was taken to transfer him to a bigger hospital. Several calls were made for an ambulance to no avail until they decided to hook him up to oxygen and transport him with his personal car. After fighting traffic to get to Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, there was another issue getting him into the emergency ward, as nurses who were finishing their shift refused to attend to him, based on the account of those with him.  
“They reportedly claimed that the doctor that could attend to him was busy and they should wait. He was still in his personal car, clinging to life when a doctor went out there to pronounce him dead. The doctor, one Dr Olufemi, claimed that he died on arrival. His driver and personal assistant insist he was still responsive after their arrival at LASUTH. He has been deposited at LASUTH morgue awaiting an autopsy.”
Late Agekameh was an award-winning senior Nigerian journalist who at various times worked for Champion Newspaper, Newswatch Magazine and Tell Magazine. He left TELL in 2004 as Senior Associate Editor to set up Quicklink International Network, publishers of The Capitol International Magazine.  

Those who know him describe him as an energetic, dogged and committed journalist and writer. He was perhaps Nigeria’s best crime, law enforcement and security reporter with an extensive network of sources within the nation’s security services.  

While in TELL, he broke many top stories including exposing the network of crossborder daredevil robbers terrorising Nigerians and snatching cars. That story led the police to arrest the notorious cross-border kingpin, Hamani Tijani. He won a series of awards for that investigation. Despite his ill-health, Mr Agekameh struggled to maintain his weekly columns in The Nation and Premium Times every Wednesday.


International DJ Zedd, has claimed he's been banned from China for liking a Tweet from the adult animated show ''South Park,'' following a rift between the producers of the show and the Communist Chinese government .

The rift between China and the show’s producers started last week when they aired an episode titled “Band in China.”

In the episode, one of the characters, Randy Marsh travels to China to sell marijuana from his farm in the Chinese market. While there, he is arrested and witnesses the harsh treatment of Chinese prisoners. While at the work camp, he encounters Winnie the Pooh who was also a political prisoner in the cartoon, and Winnie the pooh had striking physical comparisons to Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The episode sparked outrage from Beijing, prompting the government to ban "South Park" from its Internet, including any social media mentions on State controlled social media platform Weibo -- as well as scrubbing episodes and clips from the streaming service Youku.
                              
The controversy continued after the producers Trey Parker and Matt Stone issued a mock "apology" on Monday to China.

Zedd, whose real name is Anton Zaslavski, announced his ban just days later, though he did not say if the ban meant he was no longer physically allowed in the country or if his music would be censored.

CNBC reported Saturday morning that his songs were still available on China’s main streaming service.

The Nigerian government has been alerted by Nigerien authorities over $1.7m cash found in an apartment believed to be owned by arrested former Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina.

Maina who sneaked into the country from Dubai to avoid getting arrested, is under investigation for alleged mismanagement of over N24billion pension funds while in office.  Recall that 29 assets worth N1billion also suspected to be owned by him have already been seized.

The Nation reported that the apartment the money was discovered in was one of Maina's hideouts and he might also get probed on why one of his nephews, Sadiq Abdullahi Ismaila was almost tortured to death over how $1.7million got missing from a safe house.

 “The $1.7m was stashed in an apartment in Niger Republic which was being occupied by a Nigerian.
“So far, a trail of the cash by security agencies has linked Maina to the cash because the apartment was alleged to be his hideout.
“Detectives are working round the clock to uncover where the suspected pension cash was sourced and how it was ferried to Niger Republic.
“One of the clues being probed was the allegation that Faisal Maina (the son of the ex-pension reform task force chairman) moved the cash from Nigeria to the Republic of Niger.”
Responding to a question, the source added: “Investigators have also discovered that Maina  allegedly influenced the arrest and torture of one of his  nephews, Sadiq Abdullahi Ismaila over a missing $1.7m.
“Sadiq , who later released a video clip on his ordeal, asked Maina to turn his searchlight on his son, Faisal and wife" an authoritative source said.. 

Sadiq Abdullahi Ismaila who released a video on his ordeal over the missing cash is reportedly being pressurized by relatives to go underground to save Maina. The missing cash has been linked to Maina's sudden reappearance in the country. In the video obtained by The Nation, Sadiq said; 

 “I am a nephew to the ex-pension boss, Abdulrasheed Maina. Well, a lot has been happening lately. For those of you that know me very well, a lot has been happening. I know some of you know everything that has been going on and I haven’t come out to say a word about it yet.
“But I figure it is high time I come out to speak about it . Why? It is because I felt for the safety of the people around me, especially my family and others like that.
“Well, I was abducted by Abdulrasheed Maina (my uncle) for three days and I was tortured for something I didn’t do. He accused me of taking $1.7million of his which his son took from his house. His son and his wife too,
“I have been paying for $1.7million that is not with me. The funny thing is that this man has been sending people after me, my family and friends. And  for me, I don’t really care because I have seen it all. There is nothing more he can do to me because I have already endured three good days of torture from somebody I look up to.
“He is somebody I point out to be a father figure to me; somebody who is the immediate brother to my mum. Let me make this video short. Abdulrasheed Maina, if you think your money is with me, I told you, go and meet your wife and your son.
“The $1.7million, you said you got it while you were washing toilets. I don’t know where they pay in dollars for washing toilets. I don’t know where you got the money from.
“But I know for sure the way you launder money and you know I know that. That is why you wanted me dead. I just survived because it was not my time when you asked those hoodlums, claiming to be DSS operatives to torture me for good three days. I almost died but it was not my time.
“For you now to be sending people because I have been quiet about it. I have been quiet about it because your mum (our grandmother) begged me to keep the issue as a family issue.”


The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammad has issued out a warning to those disobeying court orders which according to him might attract grave consequences. 

The CJN who was represented by John Tosho, Chief Judge of the federal high court at the launch of the 9th house of representatives legislative agenda in Abuja, commended the national assembly for being a good and dependable ally of the Nigerian judiciary and further added that the judiciary will continue to operate without fear or favour.

Muhammad stated that every citizen of the land must be obeyed as disobeying lawful court orders will be too grave to bear.

 “I will like to assure you that as you embark on this important voyage of national rebirth and re-invigoration through effective, people-oriented legislation, the Judiciary is solidly behind you.
“We will on our part, as usual, vigorously pursue the observance of the rule of law by all citizens. There is no sacred cow anywhere, as no one is above the law, no matter his or her position in society.
“Justice must be served without fear or favour. Every law of the land must be obeyed. Let me assure everyone present here that the consequences of disobeying lawful court orders will be too grave to bear.
“We all should gird our loins to do our constitutionally assigned duties with due diligence so that Nigeria can be the pride of everyone" he said.


Governor Gboyega Oyetola has vowed not to appoint political aides from other states as it was no longer fashionable because indigenes of the state rejected it.

 
The Osun State Governor who made the annoucement at Iwo where the former National Commissioner of the National Hajj Commission and renowned journalist, Alhaji Liad Tella was turbaned as the Asiwaju Muslimi of Iwo land, assured indigenes of working to improve their lives with worthwhile projects and infrastructure. 

He further disclosed that all his political appointees are indigenes of the state which according to him is a move to stop the use of “imported” politicians as political office holders.

Governor Oyetola's predecessor, Rauf Aregbesola worked with commissioners and aides who were from Lagos and other parts of the country..
