kenneth Ononeze Okwor is a young Nigerian man who has done the nation proud by graduating from the prestigious Harvard University of the United States of America(USA). He took to his facebook page to share the goodnews. An  elated Kenneth wrote ” I came to Harvard to find a cure for my Impostor Syndrome and to convince myself that I am worth it. Indeed, Harvard treated me: my blood became crimson, my heart received the seal of the Great H, and my mind was trained to seek out the truth (Veritas). The professors, my healers, exposed me to the deep secrets of knowledge in my chosen field; and for the first time, I was taught to think and to think again. The treatment was working, or so I thought. Two days ago, at our Class Day, Prof Carol Steiker noted that knowledge is like a balloon: as the volume of the air in the balloon increases, so does the surface area of the balloon.
Similarly, as the volume of our knowledge increases, so does the surface area of our ignorance. I was alarmed, and upon careful introspection, I was forced to accept the sad reality that the treatment provided by Harvard and all the knowledge I have gained here were only further evidence of my own ignorance. I graduated from Harvard or was discharged yesterday. The ceremony was beautiful and emotional. The show of love and support from my friends across the globe, my family, my benefactors, and my professors was intense. I am grateful to everyone for the messages, tags, likes, comments, posts, etc. God will bless and reward you all. I am also grateful to my colleagues. We survived the intense readings and cold-calls together. Congratulations to you all! In all, I am grateful to God, and I am happy to announce that in my most recent quest for knowledge and healing, I found the following knowledge and truth: I know nothing. The only knowledge I have gained is the knowledge of how much I do not know. I see the limits of my knowledge and the vast wilderness of my ignorance. I have resolved, therefore, to use this knowledge of my ignorance to serve and protect those wise restraints that make us free men and women.” Congrats kenneth the sky is your starting point.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has said it will begin manhunt with immediate effect for the home-based Nigerians indicted by the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for a variety of scams and online fraud cases in the US.

According to DAILY POST report the fraudsters, majority based in Nigeria, were involved in a series of coordinated internet scam running into billions of dollars fraudulently obtained from victims in the United States and other parts of the world.

He said this while speaking at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja on Friday, the Acting Chairman of the agency, Ibrahim Magu, stated that the agency had commenced investigation into the matter.

He said the commission was investigating to ascertain the involvement of Nigerians who collaborated with the ones indicted in the United States.

“We will investigate it and we will leave no stone unturned. We will go after those who collaborated with the ones in the US and they will be made to face the full wrath of the law,” Magu said.

He also restated an earlier position of government that it would go after those involved in the failed Process and Industrial Development (P&ID) gas to power project that plunged the country into a $9.9 billion judgement debt crisis.

The EFCC boss said the commission was collaborating with the FBI in two operations notably Operation ‘Wire-wire’ which commenced in 2018 and Operation ‘Rewire’ presently ongoing, both aimed at containing cybercrime.

He said the joint operation involved Malaysia, Canada, Indonesia and the United States.

“We work with FBI in Lagos. We carried out operation wire-wire and the FBI mentioned in their press statement that we are one of the agencies working with them and it was successful”, he said.
On the P&ID $9.9billion judgement debt, Magu said the investigation had commenced.

“We are investigating. It’s ongoing. It will be revealing because some people want to rob this nation and we will not allow that”, he said.

“Boko Haram Engaging In Fishery To Fund Terrorism” – Nigerian Army Reveals

The head of the military counter-insurgency operations in the North-East (Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole), Olusegun Adeniyi has said that the military will now move against the finances of Boko Haram.

He said this would be done by restricting their fishing activities anywhere in the country.

Adeniyi said this while addressing journalists in Maiduguri on Friday regarding vehicles, fish, hides, and skin, seized from transporters believed to have been trading with the Boko Haram insurgents.

Adeniyi revealed that four vehicles conveying insurgents’ fishery products were seized on Maiduguri-Ngala Road by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps.

According to him, the military has not moved out of Borno State but changed its strategies to prevent attacks on its base.

He added that troops had vacated the trenches and reduced the roadblocks and in its stead, evolved mobile units where the troops rove troubled areas.

He said the military found out that the stationed formation made it easy for the insurgents to attack military facilities but with the latest strategy, he pointed out, the insurgents would be in for a surprise.

He said: “Boko Haram insurgents have a running business to generate money to fund their dastardly activities. We fully recognize the fishery industry in Nigeria but the fishery done by Boko Haram is to create confusion, continue insurgency and destruction of the North-East.

“Anybody who allows his horse or camel to carry fish for the Boko Haram, you are part of the insurgents because you are aiding them.”
