$620,000 Bribe: ICPC Re-arraigns Farouk Lawan, Emenalo

Two members of the House of Representatives Ad-Hoc committee, which probed the scam in the fuel subsidy regime in 2012, Farouk Lawan and Boniface Emenalo, have been re-arraigned for collecting $620,000 bribe in their course of duty.
The Independent and Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) re-arraigned the two men on a seven-count charge before Justice Banjoko of a Federal Territory High Court in Gudu, Abuja. The two legislators again pleaded not guilty to all the counts on Wednesday, as they earlier did on February 1, 2013, when they were first arraigned.

Liverpool’s Luis Suarez Recovering from Knee Surgery │Almost Set for World Cup

Good news for all the football fans out there.
Star Liverpool striker, Luis Suarez, will soon be fit enough to join the Uruguay national team for the World Cup. Suarez had to undergo keyhole surgery on his knee last month, inciting fears that he could miss a huge part of the tournament. However, the determined player has been putting in “triple shifts” in training to prove his fitness for the games, The Guardian reports. He was spotted on Tuesday, training energetically with the rest of his team mates. Óscar Tabárez, coach of the Uruguay team, stated that although Suarez may be unable to participate in the team’s match against Costa Rica on Saturday, he is hopeful that he will participate in subsequent future matches. We have no set deadlines. I don’t know if we’ll have him for the first match, for the second, for the third. If it were up to me, Suárez would play tomorrow,” said Tabárez.
