A Cameroonian investigative journalist, Bisong Etahoben, is reporting via Twitter the arrest of Mahamat Bichara Gnoti, a close associate of Chadian President IIdriss Déby Itno. According to Sahara Reporters,Mr. Gnoti was reportedly arrested on the Chadian-
Sudan border with 19 SAM2 missiles he purchased from the Sudanese army meant for the Boko Haram terrorist network in northeastern Nigeria. Mr. Gnoti who claimed that President Idriss Déby gave him the funds to purchase the weapons, had waved a presidential pass issued to him by Mr. Deby’s office in order to get past border
guards but was stopped and searched by the guards who found the deadly weapons on him.
There has not been an official
confirmation or denial either by the
Chadian or the Nigerian authorities. A text message sent to the office of Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd), the National Security Adviser in Nigeria regarding Gnoti’s arrest did not receive a response, an aide said Mr. Dasuki is traveling in Mexico.
However, the arrest of Mr. Gnoti, if
confirmed, will provide solid evidence that the Chadian president is largely behind the Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria’s northwest.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday described the performance of President Goodluck Jonathan as below average. Obasanjo spoke during an encounter
with book writers in Abeokuta, Ogun
State, as part of activities marking the popular Ake Festival. When asked of his view on Jonathan’s administration, he said, “His performance is below average. I will not accept responsibility for his
performance. There is nobody that gets such a position without being helped.” The former President also debunked the insinuations that he had selected Jonathan as the running mate to the late President Musa Yar’Adua because he knew the latter was sick.
“Yar’Adua told me he was well. He
showed me his medical report and I even consulted experts,” he said.
He said he had only supported the idea of a South-Southerner succeeding Yar’Adua to extend the sense of belonging that the emergence of a Southern President in 1999 represented. When the former President was also asked on why he preferred Jonathan to
the former governor of Rivers State,
Donald Duke, he said, “In my own life, I don’t put all my eggs in one basket. Duke was young enough to be in the reserve. “He did not agree with me. Donald Duke
is my friend but he needs a little of
toning down. He needs to get his feet on the ground.”
The former President had, in a

Jonathan titled: “Before it is too late” raised many issues concerning

A magician worked on a cruise ship in the
Caribbean. The audience would be different each
week, so the magician did the same tricks each
week. However, there was a problem, the
captain's parrot saw the shows each week and
began to understand how the magician did every
trick. Once he understood, he started shouting
out the secrets in the middle of the show, "Look,
it's not the same hat." "Look, he is hiding the
flowers under the table." "Hey, why are all the
cards the Ace of Spades?" The magician was
furious but couldn't do anything, it was, after all,
the captain's parrot. One day, the ship had an
accident and sank. The magician found himself
with the parrot, adrift on a piece of wood, in the
middle of the ocean. They stared at each other
with hatred, but did not utter a word. This went
on for a day, then another, and another. Finally,
after a week, the parrot said, "Okay, I give up.
Where the heck is the boat?"
