Son Of Former Nigerian Chief Justice Uwais Who Joined ISIS Is Killed In Syrian Airstrike

Celebrity gist has learned that Ibrahim Uwais, a son of former Chief Justice Mohammed Uwais, died today near Aleppo, Syria as the United States targeted members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in fierce airstrikes.

A source said that the late Ibrahim Uwais, who secretly traveled to Syria in February 2015 to join ISIS, was one of numerous Islamist terrorists who perished as US military aircraft bombarded known ISIS camps near the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo.
“Ibrahim died today on the battlefield in Aleppo,” our source stated. He added that one of the two wives of the deceased currently trapped in Syria might notify the family of his death.
Ibrahim Uwais left Nigeria in 2015, telling close family members he was headed to Turkey to explore business opportunities. He took along his two wives and five kids. However, he slipped from Turkey into Syria with his entire family and joined the burgeoning army of volunteer fighters who travel from different parts of the world to enlist with ISIS, a group whose agenda is to carve out an Islamist caliphate.

The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) says Nicon Luxury Hotel, owned by Jimoh Ibrahim, a Nigerian businessman, is currently defaulting in unpaid tax liabilities, to the tune of N392,623,765.
The agency also said Nicon Insurance has N182,685, 036 million in unremitted withholding tax and (Value Added Tax) VAT from 2008 to 2012.
In a statement released on Thursday, FIRS said it sealed companies in Lagos, Abuja, Owerri and Kaduna in continuation of its efforts to arrest the growing incidence of non-remittance.
In Lagos, the FIRS sealed the premises of Swift Networks, an internet provider, and Pan Ocean Oil Corporation Nigeria Limited, for failing to remit huge amounts in VAT.
“Swift Networks, which has its office on 31, Saka Tinubu Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, failed to remit N702 million to the government. It’s office was sealed by FIRS officials  led by the Director of Enforcement, Emeka, Obiagwu,” FIRS said.
FIRS said several notices have been served on  the companies and several moves were also made to compel the companies to remit their taxes, but most of these companies turn deaf ears.
“At the office of Pan Ocean Oil Corporation, the enforcement recorded some drama, with the company’s security men attempting to prevent FIRS officials from carrying out their duty,” it added.

 Justin Beiber has replaced himself as number one on the UK Singles chart. Last week, Canadian pop star Justin Bieber was in the top spot with ‘Sorry’ and now he’s still sitting at number one, but this time it’s with single ‘Love Yourself’. Both singles are taken from his latest album Purpose.

Bieber is also dominating the top five, with ‘What Do You Mean’ taking the number four spot. ‘Love Yourself’ racked up 5.97million streams in the UK this week to move up one spot, according to the Official Charts Company.


 ‘Sorry’ clocked 5.5million streams online and Bieber’s impressive chart feat has also seen him entering the record books again, as only two other artists have ever replaced themselves on top of the UK singles chart.

 The last artist to do so was Elvis Presley in 2005, when reissues of ‘Jailhouse Rock’ and ‘One Night/I Got Stung’ hit Number one in succession.

The last living artiste to do so was The Beatles in December 1963, with ‘She Loves You’ and ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’
