    Audu Ogbeh has claimed rich Nigerians are ordering pizza from London and having it flown over via British Airways, whereupon they pick it up at the airport.
    Utterly ridiculous, just doesn't make sense at all. There's no way you can keep the pizza warm for long enough

    africanews_2019/04/02/over-2000-civilians-killed-in-mali-niger-burkina-in-5-months-researchers

    The biggest surge in fatalities from attacks on civilians was in Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger, despite the deployment of thousands of Western and United Nations troops to try to contain the violence.

    Attacks have hardened existing rivalries between ethnic groups, especially herders and farmers, leading to a series of tit-for-tat reprisals.

    In Mali, ACLED documented 547 fatalities in attacks on civilians in the last five months, a more than fourfold increase on the same period a year earlier. In Niger, it documented a five fold increase, with 78 reported fatalities.

    And Burkina Faso, which had previously been known for its stability in a troubled region, suffered 499 fatalities from attacks on civilians, a more than 7,000 percent jump.

    The Sahel also includes Mauritania, Nigeria, Chad, and Sudan.

    Memo: when commemorating an even of huge historical significance to a country, try not to almost set fire to the First Lady of said country.

    enca_sudan-president-omar-al-bashir-steps-down

    Official he has stepped down.....

    As always a concern with a 'transitional' council

    The minister of production and economic resources in North Darfur Adel Mahjoub Hussein told the Dubai-based al-Hadath TV that "there are consultations to form a military council to take over power after President Bashir stepped down".

    I am glad that the protest continue but I hope it gets a desired result.

    Long-time President Omar al-Bashir was overthrown and arrested on Thursday after months of street protests. But demonstrators say the military council which has taken power is part of the same regime.

    The fresh stand-off has raised fears of a violent confrontation between protesters and the army. There is also a real danger that different elements of the security forces and militia could turn their guns on each other, says BBC World Service Africa editor Will Ross.

    Even More stepping down going on in Sudan

    Defence Minister Awad Ibn Auf announced his decision in a broadcast on state TV on Friday.

    He named as his successor Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman Burhan.

    It comes after protesters refused to leave the streets, saying the coup leaders were too close to Mr Bashir.
