Published

Shehu of Borno

The Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Abubakar Ibn Umar Garbai Elkanemi has decried the recent attack on the state governor Babagana Zulum by Boko Haram, saying his people are no longer safe.

The Borno monarch also declared that citizens of the state are no longer safe and requested the people to raise their hands and seek the face of Allah in prayers.

The Shehu who was reacting to the attack on the convoy of Gov. Babagana Umara Zulum at Baga last Wednesday during a traditional Sallah homage to the governor described the incident as “very unfortunate and a great pity.”

“Your Excellency, we are not happy about what has happened in Baga the other time, it is very unfortunate and a great pity. If the convoy of the whole Chief Security Officer of the state will be attacked, then wallahi nobody is safe, because he is the number one citizen of the state, he is the Chief Security Officer of the State.

“If a convoy of such highly placed people in the State will be attacked, I repeat, nobody is safe. The matter is getting worse, I urge everyone to raise up our hands to seek Allah’s intervention,” the royal father said.

The Shehu during his remarks also called on all people living in Borno to take the COVID-19 pandemic seriously by complying with all medical directives and preventive protocols to mitigate the spread of the virus in the state.

Gov. Zulum in a brief remark expressed his gratitude to the royal father for his homage.

Naked German man chases wild boar that stole his laptop (photos)

Published

A German nudist was sunbathing naked at the Teufelssee in West Berlin when a wild boar picked up the yellow bag containing his laptop and the man gave chase.

The photographer who captured the drama, Adele Landauer, shared it on Facebook with the permission of the naked man.

In the photos, the naked man is seen chasing the boar and her two piglets while fellow sunbathers looked on in amusement.

“Nature strikes back,” wrote Adele Landauer, a personal coach, on Facebook. “I showed the man the photos, he laughed heartily and gave me permission to make them public.”

The man was sunbathing naked at the Teufelssee in West Berlin, a popular and perfectly legal practice in the German capital as part of what is known as FKK, or Freikörperkultur (free body culture).

The wild boar had apparently spotted a pizza being eaten by other bathers so it seized a yellow bag containing the man’s laptop, probably believing it to contain food.

When the man noticed what was going on, he chased the animal into the undergrowth.

“Because the bag contained his laptop, he gave it his all, even though he was in his birthday suit,” explained Landauer.

The boar’s flight was slowed by a cardboard box in its path. The man clapped his hands and hit the ground with the stick, prompting the boar to drop the laptop and the man took his bag back.

Another witness said:

“When he returned from the forest, everyone applauded him.”

Derek Ehlert, Berlin’s ombudsman for wild animals, told local media that such incidents had become increasingly common, and that foxes had also become regular visitors to Berlin’s lakeside resorts.

“We urge people not to panic in such a case,” he said. “We have so far had no injuries – the animals are quite used to humans.”
