18 year old boy confesses to molesting more than 50 children

An 18-year-old in California has admitted to molesting upwards of 50 young children after he told his mother he sexually assaulted two boys and she turned him in, police said.

Joseph Hayden Boston was charged Saturday with assaulting the two boys, ages 4 and 8, at a motel in Riverside, police said.
“He also admitted to molesting upward of 50 children since he was 10 years old in different cities where he lived,” police said.
Detectives are seeking other potential victims, according to police. 
Boston was arrested after his mother flagged down a Riverside cop around 3 a.m. Saturday. She said she wanted to turn her son in for suspected molestation, police said.
“The suspect called his mother and said he had molested two young children earlier,” police said. “She drove to her son’s location and took him to the police station, where he later confessed the acts to officers.

The parents of the alleged victims, who were staying at the same motel as Boston, allowed them to go to Boston’s room, police said.
"This is going to affect not only the victims for a long time, but also our detectives and officers involved in this -- to hear someone just be very open about what they've done, and they're only 18 themselves," Riverside Officer Ryan Railsback said, according to KABC-TV.
The two boys were turned over to the Riverside County Child Protective Services, police said.
Boston checked into the motel last month after living in Lakewood and Buena Park.
He is being held on $1 million bail after being booked on sexual assault charges.

Military deploys helicopters in N’Delta, destroys oil storage

Residents of Oporoza, the traditional headquarters of Gbaramatu Kingdom, and home town of wanted former Niger Delta militant leader, Chief Government Ekpemupolo, in the Warri South West Local Government  Area of Delta State, were on Tuesday thrown into panic when they saw two military helicopters hovering round the community.

 It was gathered that the helicopters  were first sighted by the residents at 10am and flown for about 30 minutes before leaving the community.

The PUNCH gathered that the aircraft returned for the second time at noon causing residents, some of who feared that soldiers were coming to invade the community, to panic and flee into the swampy neighbouring bush for cover.

Local sources who confirmed the development to one of our correspondents, appealed to the Federal Government to caution the military in order to avoid another invasion of the community over the recent threat by the Niger Delta Avengers.

Investigation showed that the Nigerian military had deployed more soldiers in the creeks of Gbaramatu and the Escravos River, including Burutu, to check the activities of militants and to prevent their planned attack on oil and gas facilities.

A military source, who pleaded anonymity, confirmed the incident to one of our correspondents, saying that they were only carrying out aerial surveillance of the area, in response to the threat by the NDA.

Also confirming the development, the spokesman for the Gbaramatu Traditional Council, Chief Godspower Gbenekama, called on the Federal Government not to turn Gbaramatu Kingdom into a theatre of war, adding that no militant is taking cover in their communities.

 Gbenekama, who spoke with one of our correspondents in Warri, said, “Military helicoptershave been hovering round our communities in Gbaramatu kingdom since morning (Tuesday).

He said, “Gbaramatu people are not at war with the Federal Government. Why is it that anytime there is crisis in Bayelsa or Rivers states, the first port of call is Gbaramatu? We are just one of the many communities in the Niger Delta. We don’t deserve this siege. We have been championing peace since 2009, but every time military men are drafted to Gbaramatu.

“While we appeal to the Niger Delta Avengers to sheathe their swords, we don’t know the rationale behind the deployment of troops and gun boats to Gbaramatu creeks. We don’t want what happened in 2009 and 2016 to happen again. So, let the military restrain their men from our villages. We don’t harbour militants. Avengers are not resident in Gbaramatu Kingdom.”

Efforts to speak with the Sector 1 Commander, Joint Task Force, codenamed Operation Delta Safe, Col. Alhassan Grema, by one of our correspondents were unsuccessful.

 Also, repeated calls to the spokesperson for the JTF, Maj. Ibrahim Abdulahi, for clarification were not connecting.

However, reacting to the alleged military movement into Gbaramatu, the Commander, Nigerian Navy Ship, NNS, Delta, Commodore Ibrahim Dewu, said the helicopters were 0n routine patrol along the Trans Forcados Pipeline.

Dewu said, “What they are speculating as military deployment is routine patrol along the Escravos and the Trans Forcados Pipeline. Once we sense any security concern on that line, our men usually move in to patrol the area. Nobody is deploying any gunboat or jets to specific communities. It is a normal patrol.”

 Meanwhile, a Nigerian Air Force armed helicopter, EC-135, has bombed suspected illegal oil barges and storage facilities at Adokiakiri community in the Niger Delta, as the ceasefire announced by the NDA entered the fifth day.

The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya, said on Tuesday that the stolen oil storage facilities were sighted in the community during an “armed reconnaissance” on Sunday and subsequently destroyed.

The NAF noted that the military remained resolute in making oil theft in the region unprofitable.

The NDA had on Friday announced an immediate end to its ceasefire with the Federal Government. The group also accused the government of being insincere despite the commitment by the leaders of the region to broker peace.

The NDA said through its spokesman, Murdoch Agbinibo, that the FG was only interested in the oil in the region.

The NAF spokesman said, “The air force has destroyed some oil barges, containing stolen oil products at Adokiakiri community in the Niger Delta.  The illegal oil barges and storage facilities were spotted by the NAF EC-135 helicopter during an armed reconnaissance mission. They were all subsequently destroyed. The NAF remains resolute in making oil theft and illegal bunkering unprofitable.”

Meanwhile, the immediate past governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, has appealed to the NDA to drop its recent threat to resume attacks on oil installations in the region.

Uduaghan, who spoke on Tuesday, said, “I am appealing for caution in the handling of the renewed threat by the Niger Delta Avengers. I am appealing to the Niger Delta Avengers to drop the threat, and also the Federal Government to continue on the path of engagement.

“The issues raised from the various peace movements by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, on behalf of the Federal Government that brought some calm should be seriously addressed. We must all support the Acting Governor, Kingsley Otuaro, who has been managing the renewed threat.”

Miss Nigeria reveales why she can't be in a relationship

The current Miss Nigeria, Chioma Obiadi has
stated that she will not be allowed to be in a
When our source asked the young beauty queen
how she has been able to cope with that, she
said it was just a protective measure put in
place for her to stay away from scandals and
other “unnecessary things.”
She said, “One needs to be protected against
scandals. Some of these scandals come from
people who you are close to and trust. It is just
a protective clause to help me to be better.”
According to her, it will be hard to keep a
relationship as she has been overwhelmed with
both her school’s activities and her role as Miss
Nigeria. But then, the pretty girl said the clause
has not hindered guys from stalking her.
She added, “I have stalkers. Every girl has a
stalker, but I feel God has given us a way to
handle it without hurting anyone. I was not even
in a relationship before becoming Miss Nigeria. I
have been jostling between school and Miss
Nigeria, so I barely have time.
“The way I handle men now is pretty much the
same way I handled men before I won the
pageant. I have been a girl all through my life
and I feel all girls get pressure from men. Like I
said earlier, the organisation is very protective.
So, they have in a way protected me from
unnecessary exposure. If they feel an exposure is
not good for me, they don’t let me experience it.”
She, however, admitted that winning Miss
Nigeria was her turning point, as her life became
better and her ideas became bigger than they
used to be.
“The lowest point is learning how to be patient,
especially with the environmental battle I’ve
embarked on. It is very tough. We had a beach
cleanup two weeks ago and before we finished
cleaning up half of it, the other part which was
already cleaned up had been messed up again.
That was very frustrating, so it takes patience
and passion for one to actually keep doing that.”
The beauty queen said she intends to complete
her education once she is through with her reign.
“I don’t believe in starting up something when
you are not ready for it. I believe you have to lay
your bed properly before you lie on it. I have a
couple of business ideas, but I have yet to make
up my mind. I don’t feel bad that the spotlight
will be off from me soon. I wish I could still hold
on to it because once you’ve eaten sugar, you
don’t want to stop. But don’t forget that if you
keep eating sugar, you will get diabetes. I think I
have had my own share and I have gathered
things I can tap from to become whoever I want
to be. The wise thing for me is to grow and
become a greater person. I am just looking
forward to handing over to the next Miss

IPOB leader Kanu, still missing on the eve of his court trial

The leader of a pro-Biafran separatist group in Nigeria has apparently gone missing, prompting speculation as to his whereabouts on the eve of his trial on treason charges.

Nnamdi Kanu, who heads the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) movement, has not been seen in public since troops were deployed to the southeastern city of Umuahia last month.

Kanu, who wants a separate state for the Igbo people who dominated the country’s southeast, has been on bail since April. He is scheduled to appear in court in Abuja on Tuesday. His lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told AFP: “Only the army can tell us where he is. Either they arrested him or they killed him. “If he is alive, they should bring him to the court on Tuesday.”

Justice ministry spokesman Salihu Othman Isah said whether the trial goes ahead depends on Kanu’s appearance and the judge. “I can’t tell you specifically what will happen,” he added.

The Restoration of Biafra was never an Igbo Agenda - Ohanaeze Ndigbo

Apex Igbo socio- cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, yesterday said the restoration of Biafra was never an Igbo agenda. President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, said what Ndigbo had always wanted was restructuring of the polity to the benefit of the various segments of the country.He made this known in Umuahia at the inauguration of the state and local government executives of the Abia State chapter of the organisation.
Nwodo’s position is at variance with the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), which are campaigning for the restoration of Biafra through a referendum for self determination.
The Ohanaeze leader said that the restoration of Biafra was a tall order given the constitutional roadblocks and would not be in the overall interest of the Igbo in their socio- economic and political relationships with other Nigerians.“We should forget Biafra and insist on restructuring,” he said, adding that there is no Igbo that is happy with the situation of things in Nigeria but “we must seek for peaceful ways of resolving the issues.”

He stated however that while the youths were justified in expressing their anger at the way Ndigbo was being marginalised in national affairs they should moderate their actions and words, adding that hate speeches would not resolve any problem.
He stated that in their engagement with the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, it was impressed on him that he and his members should tone down their words and desist from denigrating people and groups.Nwodo also said that Kanu was told that his insistence on Biafra restoration and boycott of the November 18 election in Anambra State were not acceptable to Ndigbo hence he should abandon his “rigid position and join in the quest for restructuring.”
He justified the proscription of IPOB activities by the South East Governors Forum, explaining that what the state chief executives did was to stop IPOB from engaging in its public activities that were fatal clashes with security agencies.
According to him, without the action taken by the governors of the Southeast, the zone would still be engulfed in bloodshed, adding that he would not sit by and allow the youths of Igbo land to be cut down prematurely.

People who skips breakfast are at risk of heart attack

People who skip breakfast or eat poorly to start the day are twice as likely to develop hardened arteries, which can lead to deadly heart disease, researchers said Monday.

The study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology uncovered signs of damage to the arteries long before symptoms or disease developed.
Researchers said their findings could offer an important tool in the fight against cardiovascular disease, the world’s top killer, which took 17.7 million lives in 2015, according to the World Health Organization.
“People who regularly skip breakfast likely have an overall unhealthy lifestyle,” said study author Valentin Fuster, director of Mount Sinai Heart and editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
“This study provides evidence that this is one bad habit people can proactively change to reduce their risk for heart disease.”
The report was based on 4,000 middle-aged office workers in Spain. Participants were followed for six years.
About one in four ate a high-energy breakfast, which included 20 percent or more of the day’s calories.
Most people in the study — 70 percent — ate a low-energy breakfast that gave them five to 20 percent of their daily calorie intake.
Three percent said they skipped breakfast altogether or ate very little. This group “tended to have more generally unhealthy eating habits and a higher prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors,” said the report.
People who skipped breakfast also “had the greatest waist circumference, body mass index, blood pressure, blood lipids and fasting glucose levels,” it said.
Researchers used ultrasound technology to scan participants for signs of fatty deposits in the arteries, or early evidence of disease.
They found that people who ate less than five percent of their recommended daily calories at breakfast had, on average, double the amount of fatty buildup in the arteries as people who ate a high-energy breakfast.
This heightened risk of hardened arteries among people who skipped breakfast or ate little to start the day appeared independently of other factors, such as smoking, high cholesterol and physical inactivity.

Previous studies have shown that eating a healthy breakfast is linked to good health, including a lower body weight, healthy diet, and lower risk of problems with cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes.
Skipping breakfast has also previously been shown to raise the risk of coronary artery disease.
According to Prakash Deedwania, professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco and author of an accompanying editorial in the journal, the study offers more evidence that skipping breakfast can be harmful to one’s health.
“Although breakfast skippers are generally attempting to lose weight, they often end up eating more and unhealthy foods later in the day. Skipping breakfast can cause hormonal imbalances and alter circadian rhythms,” said Deedwania.
“That breakfast is the most important meal of the day has been proven right in light of this evidence.
