Young teen sells Kidney for ipad2

A Chinese teenager was so desperate to acquire the new iPad 2 that he sold one of his kidneys for just £2,000 to pay for it, according to reports. The 17-year-old boy, identified only by his surname, “Zheng”, confessed to his mother that he had sold the kidney after spotting an online advertisement offering cash to anyone prepared to become an organ donor “I wanted to buy an iPad 2, but I didn’t have the money,” the boy told Shenzhen TV in the southern province of Guangdong, “When I surfed the internet I found an advert posted online by agent saying they were able to pay RMB20,000 to buy a kidney.” After negotiations, the boy travelled north to the city of Chenzhou in Hunan Province where the kidney was removed at a local hospital which discharged him after three days, paying a total of RMB22,000 for the organ.

According to London Evening Standard, Nigerians are one of the biggest spenders in London.

In February last year, sales to Nigerians were up 50 per cent in London shops on a year earlier, while overall in 2011 Selfridges says their spending was up by over a quarter and that Nigerians have been among its top 10 overseas shoppers for the past five years.
On their shopping lists: Suits and formal wear but also jewellery, cosmetics and childrenswear.
Labels include Paul Smith, Gucci, Prada, Chanel and Rolex while Vertu phones are a popular purchase. Although they trust established brands, they are also happy to buy across the price spectrum - hence Debenhams started putting signs up in Hausa, the language spoken by 45 million West Africans.
Their top time to shop: all year round - a consistent presence in our stores.
Average transaction in the West End: £1,648

Most of the Governor's children are in London, Former Governor Peter Odili is still in undergoing money laundry case after he was caught with over 60M Pounds in cash at the airport, former Bayelsa state governor (Alameisiga) has a pending case too, so no suprise Nigerians spend an average of 2k pounds on each transaction in London.

Former militant (Boyloaf) appointed Presidential envoy

The former militant now travels overseas inspecting training facilities on behalf of the Federal Government

For agreeing to drop his arms and join the amnesty programme of the Federal Government, Ebikabowei Victor Ben, aka Boyloaf, has become a Presidential envoy embarking on international inspection visits on behalf of the Federal Government.

As part of his visits, Boyloaf recently led a delegation to Rotterdam to inspect proposed venues for the training of former militants.

According to African Energy Intelligence, Boyloaf arrived in Rotterdam late January and has already visited Albelda College where government plans to train dozens of militants.

The training programme is part of the amnesty programme put in place by the Federal Government.

The programme, which began in 2009 under late President Umaru Yar’Adua allows for the training of former militants in the Niger Delta in various crafts relevant to the oil and gas industry.

The amnesty program is at present being coordinated by Kingsley Kuku, the special assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan on Niger Delta affairs.

It is unclear why Boyloaf, who has no known professional qualifications, is leading presidential delegations on such visits; but sources say this is not the first time Mr. Ebikabowei would embark on such trip.

As a leader of a federal government delegation, not only does Boyloaf get estacodes and first class hotel reservations, he is also entitled to aides who accompany him on such trips.

Mr. Kuku could not be reached for comments while Presidential spokesman, Reuben Abati, did not return calls or respond to text messages sent to his telephone.

When contacted, Henry Ugbolue, spokesperson for the amnesty office confirmed that many of the inspection trips were sponsored from the department, which is domiciled in the presidency.

"All the former militant leaders are stakeholders, they are entitled to these inspections," Mr. Ugbolue said.

When asked what qualification the militant leaders have to embark on such inspection visits, Mr. Ugbolue responded that "because they stakeholders, the boys are their boys."

He explained that the militant leaders were playing a major part in the training of militants and the success of the amnesty program saying "that is why from day one when government developed the template they involved the leaders and called them stakeholders."

It’s a militant world

Boyloaf is not the only militant making money from government activities. The militants’ influence within the corridors of power can be seen at the Transcorp Hilton hotel in Abuja where some of them have permanent suites to themselves. The hotel, used by top government fuctionaries, diplomats and (international) businessmen, is one of the most expensive in Nigeria.
