An explosion has rocked a pipeline operated by the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC) at Sanomi Creek, in the Ogidigben area of Warri South West, Delta State, Nigeria.

A security official and a community leader in the restive Niger Delta told Reuters on Friday that the pipeline exploded around 8 p.m. local time (1900 GMT) on Thursday.

Five principal suspects in the murder of a 75-year-old market woman, Mrs. Bridget Agbaheme, have been arraigned before a Kano State magistrate court.

 Dauda Ahmed and four others were presented before Justice Abubakar Jibrin on a four-count charge which they all denied.

Legendary Nigeria coach and Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amodu Shuaibu, has passed on at the age of 58.

According to the NFF, Amodu died in his sleep having complained of chest pains on Friday night in Benin, Edo State.

Delta State former governor, Chief James Onanefe Ibori, won a major victory yesterday when the Southwark Crown Court, London, ruled to suspend the start of the confiscation hearing against him, until the conclusion of the investigation of corruption, and misleading the court, charges against the British Police and the Prosecution in jailing the former Delta State governor.

The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has commended the President of the Senate, Senator Bukola Saraki, on his commitment to the independence of the legislature.

He paid the tribute to the President of the Senate while contributing to debate on the one year anniversary of the 8th Senate on the floor of the upper chamber on Thursday.

 Justice Evoh Chukwu of the Federal High Court, Abuja, is dead.

Justice Chukwu is the presiding judge in the forgery case against Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
