iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Go Through Drop Test (Video)

Apart from great technical specifications, one of the things most people consider when buying a smartphone is durability– ability to withstand accidental physical abuses. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus went on sale officially today in some parts of the world and surprisingly, we’re seeing drop tests already. A Youtube user named PhoneBuff uploaded a video showing how strong the phones are.

As predicted by a number of people, the iPhone 6 appears to be able to withstand the stress better than iPhone 6 Plus although both phones ended up with damaged screen.

iPhone 6 survived the back drop. Also when dropped on it’s side, it survived with a few scratches, however, the screen got damaged when dropped face down. That’s to be expected though.

iPhone 6 Plus on the other hand ended with with just a scratch when dropped on it’s back but the screen shattered during the side drop.

Below is the video:

Nigerian Army Confirms Boko Haram Leader Shekau's Death (Photos)

The Defence Headquarters has released a statement claiming to have killed a man posing as the leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau (or his impersonator) in an attack (both land and air) in Konduga Borno state between 12nd to 17th September. Find the statement after the cut...

Nigerian troops have been conducting coordinated air and land operations in furtherance of efforts at containing the terrorists in the North East part of the country. Somehow, it became apparent that the terrorists in continuation of their campaign of terror were determined to take over communities around Maiduguri which is their prime target.

There was therefore the need to ensure that communities such as Konduga were protected. It is noteworthy that the terrorists made not less than four attempts between 12 and 17 September 2014 to violate the security and enter Konduga to perpetrate their atrocities. Air and land forces were subsequently deployed to handle the situation.

Election Petition Tribunal Reports Divide NAOSS Congress

The Congress of National Association of Ondo State Students(NAOSS) ended in an unusual manner today as Congressmen failed to make resolutions on pending issues. A Congress that was called by the President of the Association was meant to hear the report of the Election Petition Tribunal earlier constituted to look into the alleged forgery perpetrated by the new President among other things.

Akeremale Oluseun a.k.a Oluomo, the NAOSS President was already presiding over the Congress until the Chairman of the Election Petition Tribunal, Hon. Banji raised an observation that the President is under investigation and so, he does not have the right justification to preside over the Congress. The Congress was quick to adopt the observation and the President had to step down for the Vice President to preside over the Congress. This decision did not go well with some Congressmen as they believe the President could only be disallowed in such manner only if he had been impeached.

With continued u…

'Ibikunle Plans 'Maradonic' Congress' -Student

By Emeka Chukwudi

Mr Ibikunle Isaac ‘Maradona’ is up to it again. Information from reliable sources reveals that the President is secretly planning to call an unpopular Congress of students, today, Monday 22nd September, 2014. The essence of this unannounced, unpopular Congress plans is to ensure that mass of students are not informed regarding the Congress, while Ibikunle secretly mobilizes his cult-friends to beat up students who dare speak against his impunity and ineptitude. My source informed me that Ibikunle and RBT had held a secret meeting at Asherifa with some known cultists, who are notorious for terrorizing the area. The meeting had resolved that Ibikunle’s men should deal with anyone who raises question on Ibikunle’s at the Congress.

It should be noted that Awoites accosted Ibikunle last Sunday, and demanded that he calls a Congress meeting of students on several issues ranging from suspension, review of the fee-hike struggle, welfare conditions and clarificat…

Africa Development Bank Young Professionals Program

African Development Bank – In September 1964, a group of Africans met in Khartoum, Sudan, to ratify the multinational agreement to set up the African Development Bank. They were representing the continent’s newly formed twenty-five governments. They had the same mission and bore the same hope. Their hope was to see the new institution contribute to the continent’s development and unity.

By this act, Africa was taking its destiny into its own hands in the early 1960s. From the very early stages, and often with reference to major market networks of pre-colonial Africa, its leaders had designed the institution so that it would be one hundred percent African. Africa wanted to be in charge of its own destiny and wanted to be distant from the ideological and linguistic divides of the time. Thus, the African Development Bank (AfDB) was created.

Nigerian Professional Football League Week 27 Round Up

Three of the premier league teams whipped their opponents silly in Match Day 27 which produced 27 goals in matches decided on Sunday where the home teams enjoyed 100 percent wins


The Flying Antelopes celebrated their second consecutive with another narrow win over the Seasiders at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium on Sunday evening with Christian Obiozor scoring the only goal of the tie in the 20th minute from the spot. It was his second goal in the last two games - the match winner against Dolphins at the same stadium during the mid week.

The triumph took Rangers’ points haul to 37 from 27 games and they have left the relegation zone to a much safer haven on the log while Wolves are still on 40. The Coal City side would wish to extend their winning streak in Umuahia where they are travelling to for the mid week match while Warri Wolves will seek redemption at home to Dolphins.


The Akure Gunners returned to winning ways again a…

Rumour Of Shekau’s Death Spreads

In a related development, rumour of the death of the sect’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, and some of his commanders in the battle with troops in Konduga was spreading across Borno State, as of the time of filing this report.

Shekau’s reported death is contained in the account of some of the survivours of an attack of the sect on Mainok on Friday, as they said they were afraid of returning to the town “because we are told the insurgents are mad as a result of the killing of their leader, Abubakar Shekau, in Konduga.”

Reports reaching Sunday Tribune in Maiduguri, the state capital, indicated that over 300 people were killed when the insurgents attacked Mainok market on that Friday in what was believed to be a retaliation of the leader’s death as villagers were in the peak of trading on the market day.

A local, Modu Jakana, who narrowly escaped that attack, told Sunday Tribune that the insurgents came in from all angles, “shooting the people as if they were exchanging fire with …
