Sunderland sack Emmanuel Eboue 3weeks after signing him after he's banned by FIFA

Image
Sunderland football club in it's bid to stay away from another controversy after the Adam Johnson saga, has moved swiftly to sack Ivory Coast defender Emmanuel Eboue after the Ivorien was this morning slapped with a one year football ban by FIFA for refusing to pay his agent.

The former Arsenal defender, aged 32, signed for the Black Cats earlier this month on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

But that contract has now been torn up after it emerged that the former Ivory Coast international will not be available to feature. Eboue has been banned by FIFA for 12 months for failing to pay his former agent.

He can return to action sooner than that if he pays an amount owed to his former agent S├ębastien Boisseau. Eboue was initially ordered to pay the money in July 2013 and fined for failing to comply with the judgement in September 2014.

He subsequently appealed against the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but his appeal was dismissed. A statement rel…

Lagos State govt clarifies position on environmental sanitation

Image
Read the press statement below...
The Lagos State Government has clarified reports making rounds on social media that the monthly environmental sanitation in the State has been outlawed, saying that the policy on the monthly exercise has not been reviewed for now. In a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, the government said the erroneous story which was attributed to the State’s Commissioner for the Environment, Dr. Babatunde Adejare was inaccurate.
Ayorinde said that Dr. Adejare was misquoted out of context when he indicated that the restriction of movement may be dispensed with, he did not in any way suggest that the monthly sanitation had been outlawed.

Ayorinde said, “While Dr. Adejare did meet with journalists today and indicated that the restriction of movement every last Saturday of the month would ultimately be dispensed with, he did not say the monthly sanitation exercise would no longer hold in Lagos.

A simple post on last office sleepover, ignites moving stories of life on the grind

Image
For sure, life in the city is tough. To keep a roof over your head and have butter to put in your bread, you just have to earn it-there are no handouts in the city, at least not every day. And for a city like Lagos, climbing your way to the top of that success ladder often times means you must do office sleepovers.



There is no way you wouldn’t have slept at your working place or somewhere else not your house because of work in this Lagos…unless your fatheris Otedola, lol. So when a couple of friends steered up a conversation on social media about office sleepovers, the ripple effect was huge. From Palmchat, people started sharing pictures of their office sleepovers with the hashtag #roadtosuccess. Some of the pictures are quite hilarious, checkout this three we pulled out from some Palmchat posts…OMG, how tired is that lady?



It might look really funny but people go through this like on a daily basis in most big cities especially if they’re not government employees or emplo…

Photos: Why didn't the referee stop the fight? Boxer in coma after suffering brain injuries during boxing match

Image
British boxer Nick Blackwell (right) is in an induced coma after suffering a bleed on the brain following a domestic title fight defeat to Chris Eubank Jr on Saturday night. The referee didn't stop the match and allowed it to go on until the tenth round, when a doctor indicated Nick Blackwell couldn't continue the fight due to severe brain injuries from punches by Chris Eubank Jr.

For the referee to allow this fight to go on until the tenth round despite seeing the severe injuries inflicted on Blackwell from the first round up till the tenth round is so inhumane. Blackwell is now in a state of coma.

Photo: How in the world did this goat get entangled on an overhead cable?

Image
That is the question the question on the lips of people who found the goat dangling precariously from an overhead cable by its horns along a road in Greece. The goat was later rescued by a group of men.

In a first unsuccessful attempt, the men used a ladder to hook onto the goat and tried to shimmy the animal back towards trees.


The leafy trees near the small town of Sykourio is where Dr Sandra Baxendell, a goat-only veterinarian, suspected it all began.
"It looks like the goat got into a tree to eat some leaves and became attached to the wire that way," she said. "Or someone put it up there, but it's unlikely. Goats are known for getting up trees." In a second rescue attempt, the men tied rope to the goat's feet, before pulling the goat along the cable to safety. Before too long, the goat was able to go on its way.
