Funke Akindele To Give Marriage Another Chance?

Talented screen diva Funke Akindele is finally set to give marriage another chance and this is
authoritative. The pretty actress, who recently marked her birthday, is now engaged to wed and has concluded plans to have a secret
introduction ceremony with her UK-based boo next month, although she is keeping the details under wraps.

According to what City People gathered from a reliable source, Funke who has been in a blossoming romantic affair with her new heartthrob for quite some time now, has finally accepted his proposal to take the union to the next level. She decided to keep it a top secret considering her first bitter experience with her much-publicized celebrity marriage that packed up few months after.

Sources reveal the handsome dude who lives in the United Kingdom is head over heels with Funke and shows her a lot of affection.

However, she has currently moved into a new mini duplex located in the high brow China Estate, inside Chevron Drive Lekki. Recall that this magazine exclusively broke the news about Funke's new romance and her new apartment in Lekki.

Although the actress came out to debunk the story that she has a new lover in her life who has been pampering her silly, she however acknowledged that she has indeed moved into a new Lekki home.

Reason not far-fetched from the
fact that she has decided to keep her relationship very private. The couple we gathered started their romance shortly after she left her first marriage and the guy whom people close to Funke confirm is very crazy about her, is quite eager to walk her down the aisle but Funke who has been bitten once aint taking any chances.

Microsoft's Windows Live Messenger To Be Switched Off Worldwide

Microsoft's Windows Live Messenger will be switched off in China in October, marking a final end to the 15-year-old service.

Originally known as MSN Messenger, it was launched in 1999 but was switched off for most users in 2013, after Microsoft bought rival Skype.

Users in China continued to use the old service but will now be transferred to Skype by 31 October.

Windows Live still had as many as 330 million users as recently as 2009.

But those numbers later declined, while users of Skype rose to nearly 300 million by 2012.

The service came to China in 2005, but later faced stiff competition from domestic rivals such as QQ messenger, built by Chinese firm Tencent.

A number of Chinese Windows Live users received emails from Microsoft on Thursday, Chinese newspapers reported, informing them of the planned closure.

The emails told users they would get free Skype credit when they migrated over to the new service,
the newspaper said.

MSN Messenger began as a simple text chat service in 1999, a rival to AOL's AIM service and ICQ.

It later added features such as photo delivery, video calls and games as the technology developed.

But Microsoft's purchase of Skype for $8.5bn (£5.1bn) in 2012 spelled the beginning of the end for the service.

Gunmen Kills UNILAG Security Chief

A group of gunmen have killed the Head of Operations, Security Unit, University of Lagos, Mr. Sunday Adejumo.

The 50-year-old was shot dead at a beer parlour on Oyenuga Street in the Akoka area of Lagos on Friday evening.

Our correspondent learnt that Adejumo on the fateful night was in the joint with three of his friends when some strange faces stormed the pub.

They were said to have headed straight for their target where he sat and hit him in the chest, before firing shots at him.

The gunshots were said to have caused confusion in the area.

It was learnt that the deceased died some minutes later because he could not get help on time.

When our correspondent visited Akoka on Saturday, he observed that the area was quiet, while the beer parlour was locked.

A resident, who did not identify himself, said the owner of the drinking house had been arrested and was being interrogated at the Bariga Police Station.

He said, "The incident happened around 8.30pm on Friday. We suddenly heard gunshots and we
all rushed into our different houses because we did not know what exactly happened.

"It was later we learnt that one of those in the beer parlour was killed.

"It was not a robbery because they did not steal anything or injure anybody else. Immediately they killed him, they left."

A source, who pleaded anonymity, told our correspondent that Adejumo might have been killed by suspected cultists.

He said, "When the gang got in, they went to where he was sitting.

They had different weapons, ranging from cutlasses to guns.

"One of them went to him, hit him in the chest and he fell down. He then brought out a gun and shot him point blank.

"On the table where he was drinking with his friends were a pay slip, his ATM cards and his car key."

Our correspondent learnt from another source that the men wanted to go away with the deceased's ash coloured Pathfinder, marked, Lagos APP 404 CM, but could not.

"We don't know exactly what their intention was.

But there were blood stains on the car and the car key also had blood stains. We suspected they wanted to drive it away, but abandoned it
when they saw it was not responding," he said.

Another police source told newsmen that the corpse of the deceased was taken to the police station late in the night from where it was taken to the Yaba mortuary.

It was learnt that Adejomo's car and that of one of his friends with whom he went to the pub, were taken away by the police.

Our correspondent gathered that his three friends were also being interrogated.

A source said, "Since he had been going out to drink, he had never gone out with these friends.

So, they are also suspects . Although one of them claimed to be injured during the incident, there may be more to it than meets the eye."

The Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Lelma Kolle, confirmed the incident.

He added that the Bariga Divisional Police Officer led his men to the scene where they found the deceased in a pool of blood.

He said, "Investigations revealed that the man parked his car a distance away from where he was drinking. The police also discovered that there was a blood stain on the car and the car key was found within the vicinity, also with blood
stains. This can only mean that after they killed him, they attempted to go away with his car.

They actually succeeded in opening the car because there were blood stains on the car seat.

But the car did not move because of the security system in it.

"The owner of the bar has been arrested and he has made statements. We cannot categorically say whether this was a robbery or an assassination plot.

The matter is still under investigation."

An official of the university in the information department confirmed the shooting to NigerianEye on phone.

The official, who pleaded anonymity, said, "We heard that he went to a party with some of his friends and there were gunshots. He was one of
the people hit during the incident.

That was what we heard. We are not aware that he died. I am just hearing that from you and I will have to confirm that information by making calls."

Happy New Month Of September

Two Students Of YABATECH Killed In Cult-related Shootings

Two students of the Yaba College of Technology in Lagos State have been killed in further incidents of cult violence, sources on the campus of the institution have told SaharaReporters.

Our student sources said the deaths occurred as rival cult gangs on the campus clashed over claims of seniority. On Wednesday, August 27, one student of the College identified as Peter Adetunji was reportedly shot dead by members of the Buccaneers cult, also called Alora. Eyewitnesses said the victim
was shot on the head in front of the Student Union Building on the campus. Mr. Adetunji died of severe
bleeding arising from the gunshot wound.

Our sources said that another student, who was identified by his alias of Burna Boy, was last Thursday killed in front of a First Bank Branch at Fadeyi bus stop near the WAEC headquarters. The location of the second killing is in the neighborhood of the college,
which is Nigeria's first major institution of higher learning.

Several students who spoke to SaharaReporters said they suspected that the latest victim, Burna Boy, was killed as a revenge attack for Mr. Adetunji's murder
on Wednesday.

Our sources said Peter Adetunji belonged to the Eiye Confraternity while Burna Boy was a member of the Buccaneers.

A part-time student at Yaba Tech said he and other students had avoided going to the school since the shooting attacks began in the middle of the week.

"We are supposed to commence our examination this weekend, but some of us are afraid that another violent clash may occur," said the source. He added:
"Right now, our prayer is that the authorities at the school shift the examination [schedule] to a time when peace has returned."

Yaba Tech has been dogged by violent cult clashes over its history.

Some students alleged that numerous college officials at Yaba College of Technology are top members, sponsors and financiers of some cult groups. They also accused school officials of victimizing, even sacking, students
who dare to protest or speak against the excesses of the cult gangs.

"What the gangs are doing now is score counting.

They are now on one-to-one count," said a student.

"We do not know at what score of deaths they will stop at," he added.

Several students said they had no hope of the cult violence abating unless the Federal Government
steps in to fire school administrators and lecturers who are patrons of various cult gangs.
