He said “If you arrest me, Biafra will come even quicker than we anticipate. I am not afraid of being arrested. I have been there before and if need be, I will also be there again.

“I will be very happy if they re-arrest me. If we are hoping for 90% compliance with the boycott of Anambra State Governorship election, my arrest will make the compliance 100 %.

“But why will I be re-arrested and nobody is going to arrest Tanko Yakassai or Ango Abdulahi because of what they have been saying? Is it because they are Fulani? They own Nigeria? They are immuned to arrest? Is arrest only meant for Biafrans and not for Fulani?

“Who will arrest Lawal Daura of DSS for flouting court order to release Bright Chimezie Isinwa of IPOB? The Fulanis say whatever they like and go free and nobody holds them accountable because they own Nigeria.” 

He also added that he has the right to travel to any part of the country without restriction.

According to the IPOB leader, “I go to anywhere I want to go. I don’t listen to threats. They motivate me rather than dampen my spirit. That thing people say I cannot do is what I love to do. When the time comes, I will go to Lagos if I have to go to Lagos.

“I have friends with connections in Lagos, Fani Fayode is my friend and he is in Lagos. If I try to visit him in Yoruba land, then I must see him in Lagos.”

C. Ronaldo Wishes To Return To England Over Tax Issues

The Real Madrid forward appeared in court last Monday to deny he had evaded about £13m in tax by using three off-shore companies based in the British Virgin Islands.

Ronaldo told the court he believed he had paid more tax than he should since he moved to Madrid eight years ago.

At one stage during his 90-minute appearance, Ronaldo said: “I never had these problems in England. That’s why I want to go back there.”

Manchester United sold Ronaldo to Real Madrid for £80m in 2009.

United manager José Mourinho said last month it would be “mission impossible” for him to re-sign Ronaldo.

The Old Trafford club have distanced themselves from reports linking them with a move for Ronaldo and Sky Sports News understand they do not want to be involved in a media circus surrounding his future.

Ronaldo signed a new-five year Real Madrid contract last November.

United play Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup clash in Skopje on Tuesday, before taking on arch-rivals Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup first leg at the Nou Camp on Sunday night, live on Sky Sports Football from 8.55pm.

Chelsea Fc Owner Roman Abramovich Sets To Split With Wife

AApCj3N

The Russian billionaire and owner of Chelsea football club, Roman Abramovich, is splitting from his wife, Dasha Zhukova, the couple announced in a joint statement on Monday.

Abramovich and Zhukova, an art collector and gallery director, met in 2005 and have two children together.

“After 10 years together, the two of us have made the difficult decision to separate, but we remain close friends, parents, and partners in the projects we developed together,” said the joint statement.

A spokesman for Abramovich, 50, declined to comment further, or to say whether the couple planned a formal divorce.

Forbes estimated Abramovich’s wealth at $9.2bn (£7bn) this year, making him the 139th richest person in the world. He is known for his love of luxury, owning the world’s second-largest yacht and a portfolio of property in locations across the world.

Zhukova, 36, is the daughter of a Russian oil magnate, and was educated in the US. She was treated with some scepticism when she entered the international art world, opening her Garage gallery in Moscow in 2008 and famously declining to name a single artist she admired in an interview.

She courted controversy in 2014 and attracted allegations of racism after posing for a photograph sitting on a chair made from a mannequin of a black woman. She denied any racist intent and said the photograph had been taken out of context.

Zhukova has become a fixture on the international art scene, where rich Russians inject millions into the contemporary art market. Garage, in Moscow’s redesigned Gorky Park, has become one of the best museums in the Russian capital, featuring frequently changing exhibits and cultural events.

The couple’s joint statement said they “are committed to jointly raising our two children” and will continue to work together on joint projects, including Garage, and New Holland in St Petersburg, a formerly derelict and shuttered island in the centre of the city.

Abramovich has poured millions of dollars into New Holland, to turn it into a social and cultural space. The oligarch often contributes to government-backed projects, a requirement for billionaires who want to stay on the good side of the Kremlin.

Zhukova is the third wife of Abramovich. He announced a divorce settlement with his second wife, Irina, in 2007, amid reports of the blossoming relationship with Zhukova.

The payout was $300m, Russia’s Vedomosti reported at the time, a fraction of Abramovich’s wealth. The couple divorced in Russia; had they divorced in Britain the settlement may have been much larger. The couple met in 1990, when Irina was an Aeroflot flight attendant. They have five children.

Abramovich is fiercely private and rarely gives interviews. For some years, it was a mystery whether he and Zhukova were married, but she confirmed in an interview in 2015 that they had married a few years after meeting.
