Assalamu alaikum,
The Plateau people are actually getting ready of a WAR......... The amount of money involved in the purchase of these weapons could not have come from individuals.

SSS displays rocket launchers, grenades bound for Plateau, Taraba Thursday, 19 August 2010 02:18 Isa Umar Gusau, Maiduguri   
Emmanuel with Weapons
 The State Security Service yesterday in Maiduguri paraded Jos and Taraba bound suspects with their deadly weapons, including rocket launchers, grenades and dozens of AK 47 rifles.
The suspects, were also found with N4.8m concealed in a boot of a Mercedes benz they were travelling in.
Amos Akila, Daniel Chayi Gyang, Mbono Musa and Yakubu Sule were ferrying the deadly arsenal to Jos, where a spiral of sectarian violence has left hundreds dead since the beginning of the year.

At the moment, thousands of security forces were deployed in Jos and environs where a cold peace is currently holding.

The suspects were paraded before newsmen at the Maiduguri headquarters of the SSS. Among them was one Ilesha Emmanuel who was allegedly trying to ship some of the AK 47 riffles and a general purpose machine gun to Wukari, Taraba State, another volatile area susceptible to religious and tribal clashes.

The weapons were concealed in a station wagon taxi loaded beneath sacks of smoked fish.

The arrests were made based on intelligence and painstaking operation that lasted for some time.

Daily Trust also confirmed that four and not six men were arrested as earlier reported. Also, a total of 31 AK 47 riffles were recovered from the suspects out of which Ilesha had 24. Over 600 round of ammunitions were also recovered.

The Jos bound suspects were arrested on July 30, while the one going to Wukari was nabbed on August 12.

State director of the SSS, Abdullahi Ahmed, who paraded the suspect said Amos Akila was arrested in 2009 for similar offence in Kaduna and prosecuted, but was freed before his recent capture in Maiduguri . He said investigations were coninuing.

Akila, 29, told Daily Trust that he hails from Taraba state and that he resides in Cameroon engaged in business. He said one Yusuf sent the weapons to him from Cameroon to hand over to one Jauro who lives in Jos, but that the weapons were to be handed over in Bauchi.

Asked about the whereabouts of the man, he said he didn’t know his house. He also couldn’t explain how they came to possess the  money found with them.

“We were taking the guns to one Jauro who was going to come to Bauchi to collect them. We were  going to be informed about where he was to collect the guns. I am not a driver but I was the person to drive the car, which belongs to Jauro. I am from Taraba state, I am a fish farmer in Cameroon ; I ply my trade in Cameroon . Someone sent the consignment from Cameroon and I went to collect them. I was just arriving at the house with the consignment when I met the security operatives. I do not know where the guns are to be taken to but Jauro asked us to meet him in Bauchi. I don’t know where Jauro resides but we met at Mararaban Jos in Plateau State ” Akila said.

Daniel Chayi Gyang, 53, said he is a civil servant in Riyom, Jos south and that he came to Maiduguri for a three day “sight seeing” and that before he came he left his car with a panel-beater for repairs. He said one Abubakar, whom he met in Maraban Jema’a in Jos, told him that Amos Akila (the suspected ring leader) was coming to Maiduguri with his car (the Mercedes benz) but decided to travel with Akila.

He said on July, 30, Akila picked him up in the hotel and they drove to one house in Maiduguri. He said that while in the house, some people came and  knocked at the door. He asked Akila if he was expecting any one. But upon opening the gate,  SSS men appeared and began searching the house. He said that he was not aware of the weapons in the house.

Another suspect, Yakubu Sule, 25, who said he is from Taraba state and a  400 level student of Sociology in University of Maiduguri, said that he has known Akila since three years. He said he was in the house with the other men when the SSS came in and began to search the place  and weapons were found in the house.

He said he wasn’t aware the weapons were there. “I came to the house last Friday. And I called him and told him that I want the house. I am a 400 level Sociology student of the University of Maiduguri. I have known Akila for the past three years now. We were not going out for robbery. I had just had my bath and was going to leave for school. I do not know where they were heading to, Akila called me and I came to the house” he said.

The other suspect, Mbono Musa, said he is also from Taraba state and a 400 level student of creative arts in University of Maiduguri.

Daily Trust could not confirm by press time from authorities of the University of Maiduguri if the suspects are students of the institution. The Chief Information officer of the university Mohammed Ahmed promised that he would find out and confirm today.

Security sources however said the four men were actually arrested the Mercedes   while heading to Jos from the house in Maiduguri with all of them seated in the car.

In the case of Ilesha Emmanuel, he said he is a driver resident in Ibi local government of Taraba state and married with 12 children. He said the riffles belonged to one Josiah Awori in Wukari who chartered his station wagon.

He said he was aware the riffles were concealed in his car when he left Maiduguri last Thursday. He said he told the owner that he could fall into trouble but the owner assured he should not worry.

Security sources said the four women on board who loaded the vehicle with dry fish, heading to Wukari along with Emmanuel were allowed to go because preliminary investigations showed they were not connected with fire arms. The SSS officials however said that investigations were still on.

General Board / Advice to Husbands n Wives
« on: February 05, 2009, 01:32:01 PM »
Assalamu alaiku,
I want to share this wil you:
1.Advice to Husbands from a Husband:
2.An Advice from a Wife (Mother) to a Wife (Daughter)

Advice to Husbands from a Husband:

I start my advice to the couples by talking about World War II, The British military and the Egyptian desert! One of the most decisive battles of WWII was the battle of El Alamein, which took place at El Alamein in Northern Egypt on the summer of 1942. It is well known that the Germans had occupied North Africa and advanced into Egypt. They were hoping to take control of the Suez Canal, then occupy the oil fields in Iraq and Iran, then attack the Soviet Union from the south, etc. The British were determined never to let any of that happen, so they summoned their best soldier, General Bernard Montgomery and mustered an enormous force to stop the German relentless advance. It was a big battle. The German dreams were shattered, the British won, and so many soldiers died and were buried in the desert of El Alamein.

What concerns us here is not what happened next to the British or the Germans. What concerns us now is that after the war, the families of the soldiers who died in El Alamein came to visit their graves. Some of them left few words inscribed on the tombstones of their loved ones buried there. School children in Egypt sometimes go on trips to the site of the battle of El Alamein and read the words written on the different tombstones. Among these are the words inscribed by a young English woman who came to visit her husband's grave. She wrote: "To the world, you were just a soldier. But to me, you were the whole world"

By getting married you are not just getting a wife, you are getting your whole world. From now until the rest of your days your wife will be your partner, your companion, and your best friend. She will share your moments, your days, and your years. She will share your joys and sorrows, your successes and failures, your dreams and your fears. When you are ill, she will take the best care of you; when you need help, she will do all she can for you; when you have a secret, she will keep it; when you need advice, she will give you the best advice. She will always be with you. When you wake up in the morning the first thing your eyes will see will be her. During the day, she will be with you, if for a moment she is not with you, physically, she will be thinking of you, praying for you with all her heart, mind, and soul. When you go to sleep at night, the last thing your eyes will see will be her; and when you are asleep you will still see her in your dreams. In short, she will be your whole world and you will be her whole world.

The best description that I personally have ever read describing the closeness of the spouses to each other, is the Quranic verse which says: "They are your garments and you are their garments"

Indeed, spouses are like garments to each other because they provide one another with the protection, the comfort, the cover, the support, and the adornment that garments provide to humans. Just imagine a journey in the winter of Alaska without garments! Our spouses provide us with the same level of comfort and protection, cover and support in the journey of our lives on this earth as garments would do in the Alaska journey.

The relationship between the spouses is the most amazing of all human relations: the amount of love and affection, intimacy and closeness, mercy and compassion, peace and tranquility that fills the hearts of the spouses is simply inexplicable. The only rational explanation for these most amazing of all human feelings is that: it is an act of God. Only God Almighty in His infinite power, boundless mercy, and great wisdom can create and ingrain these amazing feelings in the hearts of the spouses. In fact, God is reminding those who search for His signs in the universe, that these feelings in the hearts of the spouses are among the signs that should guide humans to His existence.

As He says in the Quran: "And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves that you may dwell in tranquility with them and He has put love and mercy between your hearts: verily in that are signs for those who reflect."

But the human heart is not a static entity, it is very dynamic. Feelings can and do change with time. Love may wither and fade away. The marital bond might weaken if not properly cared for. Happiness in marriage cannot be taken for granted; continuous happiness requires constant iving from both sides. For the tree of marital love to remain alive and keep growing, the soil has to be sustained, maintained, and nurtured. Therefore, here are a few tips on how to keep the tree growing:

In our world, we live a hectic life surrounded by tight schedules and bombarded by deadlines. For couples, this means that you might not find anytime to spend together, alone away from the endless work commitments. You must never allow this to happen. Try to periodically secure some time for do some special activities alone away from the rest of the world. Remember that our Prophet Muhammad (saws) had found the time to go out to the desert and race with his wife Aisha (ra). She outstripped him but later after she had gained some weight, he outstripped her.

Do go out with her regularly and frequently to do all sorts of activities: go to the mall, visit family and friends, go to the mosque, have picnics, etc. Remember that the Prophet (saws) took his wife to watch the young Ethiopians playing and dancing their folk dances.

Always keep some romance in your life. Modern life has almost transformed us into robots or high tech machines without emotions. Show of emotions is necessary to keep the marital bond away from rusting and disintegrating. Remember, that you will be rewarded by God for any emotions you show to your wife. As the Prophet (saws) said:

"One would be rewarded for anything that he does seeking the pleasure of God even the food that he puts in the mouth of his wife". Never underestimate the importance of seemingly little things as putting food in your wife's mouth, opening the car's door for her, etc. Remember that the Prophet (saws) used to extend his knee to his wife to help her ride her camel...Try to always find some time for both of you to pray together.

Strengthening the bond between you and God is the best guarantee that your own marital bond would always remain strong. Having peace with God will always result in having more peace at home. Remember that the Prophet (saws) gave glad tidings for those couples who wake up at night to pray together. The Prophet (saws) even urged the spouse who rises up first to wake the other spouse up even by throwing cold water on his/her face.

Always try your best to be good to your wife by words and by deeds. Talk to her, smile to her, seek her advice, ask for her opinion, spend quality time with her and always remember that the Prophet (saws) said "the best of you are those who are best to their wives"

Finally, it is common that spouses vow to love and honor their spouses until death do them part. I do believe that this vow is good or even great, but not enough! It is not enough that you love your wife. You have to love what she loves as well. Her family, her loved ones must also become your loved ones. Don't be like my colleague who was unhappy about his wife's parents coming to visit for few weeks. He candidly said to her "I don't like your parents." Naturally she angrily looked at him straight in the eye and said " I don't like yours either!"

Also, it is not enough that you love her until death do you part. Love should never end and we do believe there is life after death where those who did righteousness in this world will be joined by their spouses and offspring. The best example in this regard is the Prophet (saws) whose love for Khadija (ra) his wife of 25 years, extended to include all those she loved and continued even after her death. It was many years after her death and he never forgot her and whenever a goat was slaughtered in his house he would send parts of it to Khadija's friends and whenever he felt that the visitor on the door might be Khadija's sister Hala, he would pray saying "O Allah let it be Hala."

Love your wife and love what your wife loves not only until death but until you be together again in the next life Insha-Allah.

An Advice from a Wife (Mother) to Wives (Daughter & co)
‘Abd al-Malik (RA) said: “When ‘Awf ibn Muhallim al-Shaybani, one of the most highly respected leaders of the Arab nobility during the Jahiliyyah (pre-Islamic period) married his daughter Umm Iyas to al-Harith ibn ‘Amr al-Kindi, she was made ready to be taken to the groom, then her mother, Umamah came into her, to advise her and said:
‘O my daughter, if it were deemed unnecessary to give you this advice because of good manners and noble descent, then it would have been unnecessary for you, because you posses these qualities, but it will serve as a reminder to those who are forgetful, and will help those who are wise.
‘O my daughter, if a woman were able to do without a husband by virtue of her father’s wealth and her need for her father, then you of all people would be most able to do without a husband, but women were created for men just as men were created for them.
‘O my daughter, you are about to leave the home in which you grew up, where you first learned to walk, to go to a place you do not know, to a companion to whom you are unfamiliar. By marrying you, he has become a master over you, so be like a servant to him, and he will become like a servant to you.
ü   Take from me ten qualities, which will be a provision and a reminder for you.
ü   The first and second of them are: be content in his company, and listen to and obey him, for contentment brings peace of mind, and listening to and obeying one’s husband pleases Allah.
ü   The third and fourth of them are: make sure that you smell good and look good; he should not see anything ugly in you, and he should not smell anything but a pleasant smell from you. Kohl is the best kind of beautification to be found, and water is better than the rarest perfume.
ü   The fifth and sixth of them are: prepare his food on time, and keep quiet when he is asleep, for raging hunger is like a burning flame, and disturbing his sleep will make him angry.
ü   The seventh and eight of them are: take care of his servants (or employees) and children, and take care of his wealth, for taking care of his wealth shows that you appreciate him, and taking care of his children and servants shows good management.
ü   The ninth and tenth of them are: never disclose any of his secrets, and never disobey any of his orders, for if you disclose any of his secrets you will never feel safe from his possible betrayal, and if you disobey him, his heart will be filled with hatred towards you.
ü   Be careful, O my daughter, of showing joy in front of him when he is upset, and do not show sorrow in front of him when he is happy, because the former shows a lack of judgment whilst the latter will make him unhappy.
ü   Show him as much honour and respect as you can, and agree with him as much as you can, so that he will enjoy your companionship and conversation.
ü   Know, O my daughter, that you will not achieve what you would like to until you put his pleasure before your own, and his wishes before yours, in whatever you like and dislike. And may Allah choose what is best for you and protect you.”

General Board / Israel New Agression
« on: December 30, 2008, 08:10:25 AM »
Assalamu alaikum,
The Israeli Air Force used a new bunker-buster missile in the Gaza Strip that it received recently from the United States to kill hundreds of innocent Palestine citizens it has barricaded and dep[rived supply of food, water and drugs. This is REAL TERRORISM!!!

The missile, GBU-39, was developed recently by the US as a small-diameter bomb for low-cost, high-precision and low collateral damage strikes.

In a report yesterday, The Jerusalem Post said that Israel received approval from Congress to purchase 1,000 units in September. The report quoted defense officials as saying that the first shipment had arrived earlier this month and was used successfully in penetrating underground Qassam rocket-launchers in the Gaza Strip during the heavy aerial bombardment of Hamas infrastructure on Saturday. It was also used in Sunday’s bombing of tunnels in Rafah.

The GBU-39 is said to be one of the most accurate bombs in the world. The 113-kg bomb has the same penetration capabilities as a normal 900-kg one, although it has only 22.7 kg of explosives.

At just 1.75 meters long, its small size increases the number of bombs an aircraft can carry and the number of targets it can attack in a sortie.
