Photos: Mother attempts to flush new baby down sewage pipe, baby rescued.

An abandoned newborn baby boy was found trapped inside a sewage pipe after his mother attempted to flush him and he got stuck in the pipe.

The landlady of the building in China where the baby was found heard him crying and when she tried to trace where the sound was coming from, she saw the baby's toes as they peeked from the pipe. She alerted the fire service men who cut him loose and took him to the hospital where he was finally removed from the pipe. He was in bad shape and said to have a fracture in his skull but doctors have fed and nursed him and he is currently in a stable condition.

Timipre Sylva, ex-Bayelsa Governor arrested by EFCC

Former Bayelsa Governor, Timipre Sylva
Operatives of the EFCC today at Abuja arrested the former Governor of Bayelsa, Timipre Sylva who was hiding at a dingy corner of his palatial mansion.

The EFCC spokesman released this statement thereafter:

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, today (May 8, 2013) arrested the former governor of Bayelsa State, Timipre Sylva. He was picked up at his No. 3, Niger Street, Maitama, Abuja home. On arrival at the facility at about 10.00 am, the Commission’s operatives were told that the ex-governor was not in town but they insisted on conducting a search of the house having obtained a warrant from the court.

During the search, vital documents were obtained. Ironically, the ex-governor who was said to be out of town was later found hiding in a dingy corner in the upper chamber of his expansive mansion.
He was immediately whisked away and is currently being interrogated at the Abuja headquarters of the anti- graft agency. He is being grilled in connection with fresh evidence linking him with a bouquet of fraudulent transactions that borders on money laundering. Part of the new evidence includes a number of eye-popping real estate acquisitions in Abuja.
The arrest of the former governor is sequel to his refusal to honour invitations by the Commission. Rather than appear before the EFCC, he got his lawyers to inform the Commission that he was unable to appear because he was sick, and hospitalised in Lagos. The lawyer had promised to appear with his client on May 7, 2013 but failed to do so.
The Commission warns that it will not longer tolerate the antics of suspects who treat its invitations with levity.

Sir Alex Ferguson bows out at Manchester United FC

Sir Alex Ferguson
After a successful 26 years as the Manager of Manchester United FC, Sir Alex Ferguson today announced that he would be retiring from the job of Manager at the end of this season. He would then become a club director and Ambassador to Man U. He is 71 years old and joined the club in 1986.

During his time as club Manager, Man U won 38 trophies including 13 Premier Leagues titles and 2 Champions Leagues titles. A man of many accomplishments, who has written his name in gold in the history of football club management having achieved so many milestones, he would surely be missed.

Here is a statement by that he released today:

“The decision to retire is one that I have thought a great deal about and one that I have not taken lightly. It is the right time.
“It was important to me to leave an organisation in the strongest possible shape and I believe I have done so. The quality of this league winning squad, and the balance of ages within it, bodes well for continued success at the highest level whilst the structure of the youth set-up will ensure that the long-term future of the club remains a bright one.
“Our training facilities are amongst the finest in global sport and our home Old Trafford is rightfully regarded as one of the leading venues in the world.
“Going forward, I am delighted to take on the roles of both Director and Ambassador for the club. With these activities, along with my many other interests, I am looking forward to the future.
“I must pay tribute to my family, their love and support has been essential. My wife Cathy has been the key figure throughout my career, providing a bedrock of both stability and encouragement. Words are not enough to express what this has meant to me.
“As for my players and staff, past and present, I would like to thank them all for a staggering level of professional conduct and dedication that has helped to deliver so many memorable triumphs. Without their contribution the history of this great club would not be as rich.
“In my early years, the backing of the board, and Sir Bobby Charlton in particular, gave me the confidence and time to build a football club, rather than just a football team.
“Over the past decade, the Glazer family have provided me with the platform to manage Manchester United to the best of my ability and I have been extremely fortunate to have worked with a talented and trustworthy Chief Executive in David Gill. I am truly grateful to all of them.
“To the fans, thank you. The support you have provided over the years has been truly humbling. It has been an honour and an enormous privilege to have had the opportunity to lead your club and I have treasured my time as manager of Manchester United.”
