The News Agency of Nigeria reports that in the match played at the Pantami Stadium in Gombe, the hosts came from a goal down to defeat the visitors. They scored with goals from Idris Abubakar and Isa Garba in the 38th minute and 45th minute respectively to cancel out Alao Danbani’s 16th minute opening goal. Reacting to the match’s result, coach Abdullahi Biffo of Kwara United told NAN it was a disappointing game from his players, adding: “This is not what we bargained for.” Biffo, however, said such was the nature of the game of football, pointing out that his team would forge ahead to get better. While expressing confidence that his team would not be relegated from the NPFL, Biffo said his team would work very hard for that feat. Coach of the host team, Ibrahim Bariki, said the match was “very interesting”. Bariki said: “This is what every coach expects. “Our determination was good and it paid off.” Bariki, however, berated the match’s officiating, saying most of the fouls committed by the visitors were not punished by the match officials. NAN reports that the match officials had to be escorted out of the stadium by armed policemen as some of the home fans made attempts to attack them.Tags: Adamawa UnitedIdris AbubakarIsa GarbaKwara UnitednpflYola
In addition to implementing several new security measures on Monday, the 280-member Dept. of Public Safety force began the semester under new leadership.USC administrators promoted Assistant Chief John Thomas to executive director and chief, according to a memorandum issued Thursday.Thomas’ predecessor, Carey Drayton, will assume the position of special assistant to Charlie Lane, associate senior vice president of Career and Protective Services.The memo, which announced the changes to vice presidents, deans, directors and department heads, did not cite a reason for the leadership shuffle.Lane and Senior Vice President of Administration Todd R. Dickey, the memo’s authors, did not immediately respond to interview requests.The memo thanks Drayton for his seven-year tenure as chief as well as for expanding DPS operations and receiving accreditation from the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators.“He has been a major influence in higher education public safety circles and his forward-thinking strategies will continue to serve USC well into the future,” Dickey and Lane wrote.Before joining DPS in July 2006 as captain of operations, Thomas worked as the adjutant to Los Angeles Police Department chiefs William J. Bratton, Martin Pomeroy and Bernard C. Parks, according to the memo. Thomas began his LAPD career as a field officer in 1984 and held various roles thereafter, including sergeant and lieutenant.After his time at the LAPD, Thomas transitioned into working in higher-education security. He worked as deputy chief of police in the Department of Public Safety and Emergency Management at the University of the District of Columbia.At USC, Thomas helped implement a new model for analyzing crimes and oversaw plans for President Barack Obama’s visit to USC in 2010.“With more than 28 years of experience, [Thomas] is highly respected in law enforcement, having worked with some of the field’s most well-known leaders,” Dickey and Lane wrote.The memo did not indicate Drayton’s new responsibilities. Drayton applied for a position at the University of Tennessee last February but was not hired, according to documents released by UT last year.“It was a good decision for me [because] I want to be here at USC,” Drayton told the Daily Trojan during a phone interview in September.
The Broward County Sheriff’s Department is offering a reward of up to $3,000 for anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the killer or killers of South Florida-born, Jamaican-American rapper, XXXTentacion.The Plantation-born, Lauderhill, Florida-raised rapper, born Jahseh Onfroy, was leaving RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach shortly before 4 p.m. on Monday, June 18, 2018, when he was approached by two armed suspects in an apparent robbery, the Broward County Sheriff’s Department said.At least one of the suspects fired a gun striking Onfroy. Both of the suspects fled in a dark-color SUV. The rapper was transported to Broward Health North where he was pronounced dead.Investigators continued Thursday to investigate the broad daylight killing of the 20-year-old Onfroy. Contact BSOAnyone with information is asked to contact BSO homicide detectives Walt Foster or John Curcio at (954) 321-4210. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org. Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for the reward.Detectives are reportedly getting a “ton of social media posts” sent in by citizens who believe they have legitimate leads on the suspects in the XXX murder.Suspicious Facebook postOne major lead reportedly being scrutinized is a Facebook post by a rapper from Georgia, who posted at 12:56 PM on Sunday, that “xxxTentacion gone get shot tomorrow.”Another post shows a separate crew posing in front of what appears to be a gas station shortly after XXXTentacion died. The three men appear to be standing in front of a black SUV, similar to the one described as the suspect’s vehicle. However, after that photo went public and the men were identified by fans online, one of the guys posted a video denying his involvement in XXXTentacion’s death. It’s unclear if he’s been contacted by police to date.Jamaican parentsOnfroy, according to News Americas reports, was born to Jamaican parents Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy and Cleopatra Bernard. He has three siblings with one being half shared paternally. Onfroy was mainly raised by his grandmother, Collette Jones in Pompano Beach, Florida and Lauderhill, Florida.The young rapper rose to fame while posting raps online from his bedroom on the audio distribution platform SoundCloud in June 2013. Onfroy released his debut album, 17, on August 25, 2017. This March, he released his second album. His singles “Sad!” and “Changes” recently peaked at 7 and 37, respectively the Billboard Hot 100.His interest in music initially started after his aunt persuaded him to begin attending school choir and later church choir. In 2013 he launched his musical career, inspired by both rock and rap.Legal problems XXXTenatcion has, however, made headlines not only for his music successes but also for a string of legal problems stemming from a 2016 domestic violence arrest.The rapper, accused of beating his pregnant girlfriend, was slapped with 15 new felony charges in December, including witness tampering and witness harassment.Prosecutors reportedly believe the rapper – by way of recorded calls he made in jail – attempted to coerce his girlfriend into dropping her case against him.He served a brief stint in jail in December before he was released on house arrest. A judge in March granted his request to be freed from house arrest in order to take his music on tour.The rapper’s music also made waves last month after Spotify announced it would scrub his tracks from its platform, as his alleged behavior had violated codes of conduct.The move drew backlash, and Spotify later reversed its decision.On Monday, fellow rappers and musical artists took to Twitter to express their shock and sorrow.“Rest in Peace,” Kanye West tweeted. “I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here thank you for existing.”
