So a drama is playing out on Twitter right now. The name Andre Blaze suddenly started trending.

Reason? Everybody is saying the deep voice of Big Brother they heard last year has changed and believe he has been replaced by another person and they are swearing they know the new voice from a thousand mile away.

According to them, the new Big Brother is no other than popular, long time Nigerian OAP, Andre Blaze.

Andre Blaze used to work for Nigezie and he has since worked for several broadcast outfits. He is one of those presenters whose voices are easily recognisable.

The Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode has expressed displeasure with the present state of various markets across the State, saying that leaders of the various markets must prevail on their members to clean up their dirty surroundings within the next 20 days or risk closure of their markets.
The directive was issued in Alausa during a stakeholders forum with market leaders in the 57 local governments and local council development areas of the State.

Governor Ambode, who was represented at the event by Commissioner for the Ministry of Local Government and Community Affairs, Mr. Muslim Folami said the present administration abhors the dumping of refuse on roadsides, medians, bus stops as well as markets, urging market leaders to promptly rid their environment of waste.

He said dumping of refuse within the market environment poses health hazards, discourages customers and residents from patronising stalls within the markets, thereby reducing economic activity within the market environment.“You have 20 days to clear the refuse in your markets.

The State Government would not hesitate to shut down any market that is dirty because we will not be happy to see any market within our metropolis dirty”he stated.Ambode emphasised that the State Government’s resolve to ensure a cleaner and healthier Lagos informed the Cleaner Lagos Initiative and the recruitment of street sweepers across the State. He urged the market leaders to prioritize the cleanliness of their markets and cooperate with Visions cape officials by ensuring prompt and proper packaging of their waste for easy disposal.

He admonished the market leaders to ensure their members desist from street trading and urged all traders to get shops within the markets so as to ease the flow of traffic and prevent road accidents.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Local Government and Community Affairs, Mr. Fola Padonu solicited the support of market leaders to justify the huge resources already committed to the Cleaner Lagos Initiative by the Lagos State Government.“All markets must be kept clean, the State Government has spent so much on various projects and we want you all to be partakers of these benefits. Work with us to ensure Lagos is cleaner.”the Permanent Secretary said.

The president of the anglophone separatist movement in Cameroon, Sisiku Ayuk Tabe, was extradited to Yaounde on Monday after being detained in Nigeria, the government said.

Ayuk Tabe, who had been held in Abuja since January 5, was sent to Cameroon with 46 of his supporters, Cameroonian government spokesman Issa Tchiroma Bakary said in a statement."A group of 47 terrorists, which includes Mr Ayuk Tabe, has been in the hands of the Cameroonian justice system for a few hours," Tchiroma said.

"They will answer for their crimes" before the Cameroonian courts, he added, underlining the "determination" of Nigeria and Cameroon "never to tolerate that their territories serve as a base for destabilising activities directed against one or the other".Prior to their extradition, Ayuk Tabe and nine others had been "held in secret" at a hotel in Abuja, according to their lawyer and Amnesty International.

It was not possible on Monday to establish when the other separatists extradited from Nigeria to Cameroon were arrested.In mid-January, Amnesty International expressed concern about the separatists detained in Nigeria, saying they "could be threatened with torture and (given) an unfair trial" if they are extradited from Nigeria.

Over the past year, there has been mounting tension in Cameroon's Southwest and Northwest regions -- home to anglophones who account for about a fifth of the West African nation's population of 23 million.English-speakers complain they have suffered decades of economic inequality and social injustice at the hands of the French-speaking majority.Ayuk Tabe is campaigning for the two English-speaking regions of Cameroon to separate from the French-speaking part of the country.
On October 1 last year, the breakaway anglophone movement issued a symbolic declaration of independence for"Ambazonia", claiming autonomy over English-speaking regions.

Cameroon's President Paul Biya fiercely opposes secession and has met the agitation with a crackdown, including curfews, raids and restrictions on travel.

The country is preparing for general elections -- including the presidential vote -- at the end of 2018.But observers say the ballot could be disrupted by the deep socio-political crisis in the English-speaking regions.

Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt,teamed up with South African side Mamelodi Sundown sat their training facility today as the 31-year-old eight-time Olympic gold medalist is visiting the country as part of an Athletics South Africa development scheme. 

The 2016 African champions announced Bolt's arrival on their Twitter account and also posted a video of the Jamaican in training with the squad. 

Bolt, who retired from athletics after August's world championships in London, is famously a Manchester United fan and has often spoken of his desire to play football. "Good thing is he's a free agent! And he can play in a few positions," Sundowns manager Pitso Mosiname, cheekily said. Bolt admits the transition from athletics to football is tough, but thanked the club for the opportunity to train with the squad."It was a good game, a fun day and I really enjoyed it.

I told the coach when I get back to Jamaica I need more training because I'm unfit. I told my friends we need to plan a trip to South Africa it's a beautiful country, I love the vibe here it's similar to Jamaica in that sense!"he said.

Roger Federer has become the first man in history to win 20 Grand Slam titles as he downed Marin Cilic to win his third major over the age of 35.The 36-year-old beat the sixth seed 6-2 6-7 (5-7) 6-3 3-6 6-1 in a match lasting little over three hours, to match Novak Djokovic and Roy Emerson’s record hauls of six Australian Open crowns.

He has now won as many titles as any other man in history at Melbourne Park, Wimbledon (8) and the US Open (5), while he became just the fourth player of either sex to lift 20 or more major titles.

She said: NBC does not ban music. Our mandate is on what goes on Radio and TV. Olamide’s Science Student has been declared ‘Unfit for broadcast’.

With Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie getting engaged within two months of each other, people have been comparing the values of their engagement rings and this has led to people wondering who among the British royals owns the most expensive engagement ring.

With regards to that, Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Diana, Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton and Princess Eugenie's engagement rings were compared in value. Check out whose royal engagement ring is the priciest, according to Metro.

Queen Elizabeth II The queen's engagement ring is personally designed by Prince Philip with the help of jeweler Philip Antrobus Ltd. The band features a 3 carat"old cut" diamond set in a claw setting in platinum.

The diamond was taken from atiara that belongs to Prince Philip's mother, Princess Alice of Greece. The ring is estimated to cost $284,168.

Princess Diana and Kate Middleton Prince Charles gave Princess Diana a sapphire engagement ring from Garrard & Co Ltd. It was not custom-made like the other royal rings. It features 14solitaire diamonds surrounded by Sri Lankan 12-carat oval faceted blue Ceylon sapphire and was set in 18-carat white gold.

Later on, Prince William used the same ring when he proposed to Middleton. In 1981, the ring was valued at$39,784.

But at the time it is estimated to have an insurance value of $426,252.

Meghan Markle There are different opinions when it comes to the value of the "Suits" star's engagement ring. According to Deborah Papas, a gemologist from Prestige Pawnbrokers, it has an estimated value of $70,000.

However, another gem expert claimed that Prince Harry's engagement ring to Markle is worth $174, 218."From seeing the pictures, I would estimate that the centre diamond is a slightly elongated cushion cut diamond, approximately 3.00 -4.00 carats.

The side diamonds are more than likely oval or round cut diamonds about 0.75 carats each," the expert explained. "We would estimate that the value of the centre stone would be around £70,000 - £115,000 ($99,553 -$163,552), while the side stones would have an intrinsic value of around £3,750 ($5,333) each."Princess Eugenie meanwhile, Papas claimed that Princess Eugenie's engagement ring is estimated to cost over $140,000.

The pink padparadscha sapphire ring surrounded by diamonds includes "the rarest and most valuable of all the corundum varieties."Initially, Papas said that Princess Eugenie's ring is twice the cost of Markle's band, which is priced at$70,000.

But another expert said that Markle's ring is worth over $170,000. If the second gemologist is correct, then the"Horrible Bosses" star's ring is more expensive.

However, neither Markle nor Princess Eugenie owns the most expensive ring. That one belongs to Princess Diana and Middleton, who share the same band.

She was spotted walking around a construction site with mum Kris and best friend Jordyn on Wednesday.

But Kylie Jenner, 20, wasn't using the rubble-filled site as a good place to stretch her legs - instead she was reportedly overseeing her new property being built in the Hidden Hills of Los Angeles, a gated community where she already owns a home. 

According to TMZ, the expectant mum is set to house her first child in a decadent mansion, with building permits suggesting the value of the job to be over$2.37m (£1.91m).

The site obtained the building permits to the impeding property issued in December, which reportedly boasts a 9,187 sq. ft. first floor and 5,304 sq. ft. second floor, with two massive garages attached.

The permits also suggest there will be a 1,836 sq. ft. of covered porches as well as a cabana for the pool. Older permits for a retaining wall and foundation were also cited, with adjustments to the building likely to cause the $2.37m cost to rise.

Kylie previously owned a $1.7m (£1.20m) decadent mansion in the exclusive Californian area, which other stars, such as Miley Cyrus and Drake call home.

The new loved up photo is coming days after the couple were spotted in the club. Recall that Davido before the club photo, had been gushing about ‘his Chioma’ on Snap chat. He was also spotted at the club with his crew members, DJ Ecool who featured him in a hit single ADA, and his manager, Asika.

Recall also that the father of two baby girls, demanded for a son from his Chioma after his hypeman, Special Spesh, welcomed a son with his baby mama. Chioma Avril Rowland, a300Level student of Babcock University. According to insiders, Chioma is also besotted with Davido and his 30Billion, so much that she is willing to do anything for him including missing school and repeating a year!Recall also that few months ago, Davido was engrossed in a paternity scandal. Ayotomide Labinjo, claimed that the‘Dami Duro’ singer is the father of her daughter, three-year-old Aanuoluwapo.

In an exclusive chat with Saturday Beats, the26-year-old lady alleged she had a sexual affair with the singer in 2013 and she got pregnant and had a baby girl.

Ayotomide alleged the pop singer had abandoned her and the baby and has refused to take up the responsibility of “taking care of our child.”Labinjo alleged she met Davido at a night club in Ibadan in February 2013where he approached her and spoke glowingly of her beauty.

She alleged they ended up sleeping in a hotel that same night.  She also alleged that a month later, Davido visited Ibadan again for Gbenga Adeyinka’s Easter show and they hooked up again for a night out and slept together at a hotel in the upscale Iyaganku area of the city.


,

Last December, Nigerian popstar Davido and respected magazine publisher, Dele Momodu squashed their 2-year old beef when the singer came to perform at the 10th edition of 'Ovation Red Carol'.

Reminiscing on the fight and all that transpired, Dele Momodu has now said, 'fighting Davido was bigger than combating Abacha'.

“Fighting with David was my biggest battle ever. It was bigger than fighting Abacha because of the blistering popularity of David; he is an extremely popular guy and it was very unfortunate, (the devil is a liar) because a baby was involved; very beautiful girl, Imade.

When it happened, I tried my best to avoid a collision with the family because I am very close to thefamily especially because of Senator Ademola Adeleke.

We used to sleep in the same house when I was in exile in London. Whenever Sen. Ademola was around, he would call me and then pick me up to his house and I’ll sleep there and when I need togo back to my own house he would drop me.” “So when the baby issue came, I didn’t knowabout it, if Sophie (Davido’s first Babymama) didn’t tell me she was pregnant, I wouldn’t have known, she was able to hide it perfectly from everyone"he said.

Nollywood actor, Muyiwa Ademola celebrates his 47th birthday today and he's taken time out to reflect on his life and small beginnings.

According to the award winning actor and movie producer, 'a superlative birthday shout out to me. I'm a definition of grace. I was born into a very humble family. My father never owned a motorcycle let alone car. My father never bought a TV not until after my secondary school.

I grew up in one of the"slumest" slums in Ibadan. No electricity for several years,I had to make use of "kuufin" (local lamp) while reading for my SSCE (We had only one lantern which no one dare touch). I had my university education 13 years after my secondary school, yet I'm being celebrated in this manner. 
What else can I say than to keep appreciating my CREATOR? THANK YOU FATHER FOR ALLOWING ME WITNESS ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL YEAR'.

Humanrights lawyer,IG Wala, shared graphic photos of whathe alleged to be the killing of two herdsmen and their cows by irate youths in plateau state. Read what he wrote on his Facebook page below THE ORGY OF SENSELESS VIOLENCE AGAINST THE FULANIS CONTINUES UNABATED!It is now fast becoming a tragedy of biblical proportions.

There seems to be a carefully planned agenda to exterminate the Fulani Herdsmen, with their pastoral way of life, in Nigeria, for political, religious and tribal expediency.

While the hypocritical media houses like the Channels TV, TVC, AIT, Vanguard, the Sun and other bigoted media outfits are fanning the ambers of wicked propaganda and hate against the Fulanis, some treacherous stake holders in Adamawa, Taraba, Benue and Plateau states, are actually busy executing a genocidal agenda against the Fulanis, with impunity!Fulani Herdsmen, Anas Zakariya and Musa Idris were ambushed and executed in cold blood.

Their cattle were destroyed. This incidence happened on 23/1/2018, at around 3.00 PM, in Kamarun Chawai Bassa local government area of Plateau State.This barbaric criminal act was committed by the notorious Irigwe Militia group, who are said to be operating with impunity in Plateau State. No media house reported this senseless destruction of human lives and property.

Because a Fulani Herdsman's life no longer matters, the state government won't do anything about it and the hypocritical media won't report these kinds of incidences either, until the Fulanis mobilise resources to take revenge!Enough is enough of senseless killings of innocent people with impunity! For the avoidance of doubt, we at CUPS are not taking sides. We are just being the voice of the voiceless!May God save Nigeria and Nigerians. Amen.Dr. Idris Ahmed.CUPS.25/1/2018.

Musician Fela's son, Seun Kutiin a post on Instagram today reacted to Obasanjo's open letter to President Buhari.

The letter, in which the former statesman adviced Buhari to rest rather than participate in the 2019 presidential election, did not sit down well with Kuti and he  berated the former president in his reaction. According to Seun:"When black people have no code how can we develop our culture? How many letters did u write to abacha? If there was justice in this land, na only civilians dey corrupt? When will there be justice against the military elites at the top of the gangster corruption machine called Nigeria."When will Obasanjo. IBB. Buhari. Ty danjuma and the rest of them face justice for their atrocities? I mean people who should be inside the darkest part of jail are bold enough to speak for the people? A people hey have robbed and maimed and killed for sixty years.#oneday!"

- The federal government has responded to the scathing criticisms launched by ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo on the Muhammadu

- Buhari administration- While describing the ex-president as apatriot, the minister of information stated that the Buhari govt has made key accomplishments in the area of revamping the economy, and not just fighting corruption and tackling the insurgency

- The minister went ahead to outline these key accomplishments, which he described as ‘phenomenal’, including in the area of agriculture and infrastructural development The Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government has issued a formal response to the attack on the president by ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, NAN reports.

The federal government gave its response on Wednesday, January 24, via the minister of information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed...

According to Mohammaed, the Buhari administration had received Obasanjo’s message in good faith.

NAIJ.com notes that the minister furtherthanked the ex-president for his “positive comments”, even as he proceeded to set the record straight.

The full statement read:“We have read the press statement by former President Olusegun Obasanjo on the State of the Nation.“For the record, Chief Obasanjo is a patriot, and he has proven this time and time again. We appreciate what he said concerning the administration’s performance in two out of the three key issues that formed the plank of its campaign: Fighting corruption and tackling insurgency.

“Specifically, the former president said President Buhari must be given credit for his achievement so far in these two areas. We thank him for this.“Apparently, the former president believes that the administration does not deserve a pass mark in the area of the economy, which is the third of our three-pronged campaign promises.“We have no doubt that in the face of massive challenges in this area, this administration has availed itself creditably.

“We believe that Chief Obasanjo, because of his very busy schedule, may not have been fully availed of developments in the government’s efforts to revamp the economy, which was battered by the consequences of over-dependence on a commodity as well as unprecedented pillaging of the treasury.

“Today, most of the indices by which an economy is measured are looking up. Permit me to say, however, that Nigeria would not have exited recession through a mere order or if the administration had not made use of good Nigerians who could help.“This Administration is making steady progress in its determined effort to revamp the economy, and the results are showing:

* Foreign Reserves have peaked at$40b, the highest level in about four years, and up from $24 billion just a year ago, even though when we came in, the price of oil had crashed woefully.

* According to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBC), headline inflation has fallen for 11 consecutive months, standing at 15.37% as at December 2017. This is the lowest inflation rate since Jan 2017, and it has met and surpassed the target set for inflation in the administration’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP).

* Our determined implementation of the Treasury Single Account (TSA) has stopped the hemorrhaging of the treasury. Some 108 billion Naira has been saved from removal of maintenance fees payable to banks, pre-TSA. The nation is being saved 24.7billion Naira monthly with the full implementation of the TSA.

* The elimination of ghost workers has saved the nation 120 billion Naira

* At about 1.8 billion dollars, the capital inflows in the second quarter of 2017 were almost double the $908 million in the first quarter.

* In the wake of a stable Naira and increased investment inflows, Nigeria’s stock market emerged one of the best-performing in the world, delivering returns in excess of 40 percent.

* Nigeria rose 24 places on the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business ranking, and earned a place on the List of Top 10Reformers in the world.

* According to Q3 2017 figures, agriculture export is up year-on-year by 25%, solid minerals exports are up year-on-year by 78%, raw materials exports are up 70% year-on-year and manufactured goods exports are up 22% year-on-year.

* Government agencies such as the Nigeria Customs Service are reporting highest-ever revenue collection, while JAMB, under the new management appointed by President Buhari in 2016, remitted N7.8 billion to the coffers of the federal government. The total amount remitted by JAMB between 2010 and 2016 was a paltry N51 million!“These positive indices may not have immediately impacted positively on Nigerians, but Nigerians will definitely get a new lease of life a short while from now.

“This is because the good news from the agricultural sector, which is recording a bumper harvest, will bring down the cost of foodstuffs, especially such staple as rice, and our massive Social Investment Programme will ease the pain of the most vulnerable in the society.“When we assumed office in 2015, some 6 million farmers were involved in rice production. Thanks to the Anchor Borrowers’ programme of this administration, we have grown that number to over 12 million farmers.

“The result is that our rice import from Thailand alone has dropped from 644 metric tonnes to 22,000 MT in just two years. This is phenomenal."Apart from rice, Nigeria is also doing well in other grains, especially Millet, Sorghum and Maize.

We are now the second largest producer of sorghum after the US, the third in millet after Indiaand our breweries are now enjoying local sourcing of those commodities.“For maize, we are producing 10 million tons while we need about 13 million tons for both human and animal nutrition. Nigeria leads the world in the yam and cassava production.

We account for 70% of the world’s yam production. In two years, we hope to be the world’s largest exporter of yam!“Overall, our ambition is that agriculture should rise from 25% to 40% of GDP, so that we can banish poverty and overcome our economic anxiety.“Our Social Investment Programme is Nigeria’s most ambitious social welfare programme ever.

Currently, 5.2 million primary school children in 28,249 schools in 19 states are being fed daily; 200,000 unemployed graduates have enlisted into the N-power Job Scheme, and a quarter of a million loans already distributed to artisans, traders, and farmers.

Swedish politician Magdalena Andersson insisted there will be “absolutely no cherry picking” from the UK in Brexittalks.

Speaking to Reuterslive from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Ms Andersson said: “Of course, we want to have good trading with the UK because it is good for the trade between the UK and the European Union. It’s good for the European Union and it is even more important for the UK.

“But I mean, it’s also very clear and we are being very united among EU 27 there is absolutely no cherry picking from the UK. “I think for the British people, I think it’s important to know what they actually voted for. Sometimes you get a feeling that they voted for both being poor.”

" We are being very united among EU 27 there is absolutely no cherry picking from the UKMagdalena Andersson"

Ms Andersson said the UK must realise “there can be no cherry picking”, adding Britain must understand being outside of the European Union means you can’t have the “good things” that are part of being an EU member. Prime Minister Theresa May ruled out remaining in the single market and customs union after Brexit during her keynote Brexit speech in January 2017.

Mrs May called for a bespoke trade dealsimilar to Canada’s CETA deal but with added benefits, dubbed by David Davis as "Canada plus plus plus".

The EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said on in November that the UK cannot “cherry pick” at aspects of the single market. He said the UK will lose the benefits of the single market access when it leaves the European Union.

Facebook user, Oriago Bongos Akhaine, who shared the story said that the young Doctor, Ehidiamen Oakimena, who is the son of a prominent UNIBEN staff was shot with an automatic rifle by Fulani herdsmen, who blocked the road.

Here’s what he wrote; With deep pain i announce the death of Dr Ehidiamen Oakimena…a senior registrar in Dept of Anaethesia UBTH. Sorry to disturb our peace. I want to inform us that Fulani herdsmen blocked the Okada Benin road and shot this young man with automatic rifle. He died of complications such as Disseminated Intravascular Coagulopathy..made him bleed ceaselessly. Residents in UBTH donated over 30 pints of blood. He is 2nd son to a prominent Christian brother… former UNIBEN staff…a Deeper Life member.

Recall that yesterday, President Muhammadu Buhari assured Nigerians that the rising attacks on communities by “herdsmen will soon be brought under control by security forces deployed to the vulnerable areas,” across the country. Buhari lamented that the unfortunate attacks which had resulted in loss of lives and property, had already “brought sorrow and hardship on many Nigerians, with the government deeply affected.”He spoke while receiving the Board of Directors of the Nigerian Economic Summit Group, NESG, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja and was contained in a statement signed and sent to DAILY POST by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina,

The president also said his administration remains resolute and focused on delivering on the, “three-pronged promises of securing the lives and properties of Nigerians, halting the pillage of the economy by corrupt public officials, and creating employment opportunities for the youths.”Buhari said the initial economic challenge posed by recession was already dwindling, with the “economy smarting out and posting better results on falling inflation rates, higher foreign reserve and better ranking on ease of doing business.“If you look critically into the 2018 budget, we have already taken into account key issues of more stable electricity, construction of roads and rails, and the airport concession’’ he said.

- Femi Falana has asked the minister of agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, to stop misleading Nigerians by referring to cattle colonies as ranches

- Ogbeh had stated that both were the same; and that the only difference was that colonies were much larger than ranches- However, Falana stated that such statement may mislead herders into thinking that they can colonise the states where they are given land to set up ranches

The federal government has been asked by renowned human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), to stop confusing Nigerians by renaming colonies as ranches, The Cable reports.

His comments were in response to comments made by the minister of agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, that Nigerians had misinterpreted what the government meant by colonies.

NAIJ.com gathers that Ogbeh had stated that colonies were the same as ranches. In his words:“When we spoke of colonies, we were immediately greeted with reactions that this was an attempt to cease Nigeria’s land and give to the Fulanis to colonise.

The intention is not for Fulanis or anyone to colonise any territory. Colonies and ranches are the same thing in many ways, except that a colony is bigger than a ranch.“In colonies, 20, 30 ranchers can share the same colony. A ranch is usually owned by an individual or company with few numbers of cows. In a cattle colony you could find 100, 200, 300 cows owned by different individuals."However, Falana stated that the minister’s statement may mislead herders into thinking that they can colonise the states where they are given land to set up ranches.

He stated:“While this belated decision is a welcome development, Chief Audu Ogbeh should be restrained from causing confusion by giving the misleading impression that the federal government intends to allow owners of cattle to colonise the states that have donated land for the establishment of ranches.“In other words, Chief Ogbeh should notbe allowed to sabotage the establishment of the ranches with his pet project of ‘cattle colonies’.“Since a ranch is a large area of land acquired for raising grazing livestock such as cattle or sheep for the production of meat the proposed, ranches should not be called cattle colonies.”

Chile forward Sanchez, 29, who almost joined Manchester City last summer, has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal worth £14m a year after tax.

City ended their interest last week as they felt making him their best-paid player may affect team spirit.
Mkhitaryan, 29, moves in the opposite direction to Sanchez after scoring 13 goals in 63 appearances for United.

North Korean officials desperate to feed Kim Jong Un’s hungry army are ransacking the homes of drought-stricken farmers to collect every last grain of food inside, according to a report that highlights rising tensions between the regime and the public.

The raids come weeks after news surfaced that soldiers in Kim’s army are being given months off at a time to scrounge around fields to find food."Officials carried out home searches in Paekam County to determine how much food some families had,” a North Korean source told Daily NK. “As an excuse to enter and demand bribes, they said to the residents,'Are we just going to let our military starve while the Americans lick their lips and prepare to eat us alive?'”The Seoul-based website, which covers the Hermit Kingdom through a network of informants, published a photo last month purportedly showing North Korean soldiers rummaging through a corn field.[Photo] Soldiers granted leave to find food https://t.co/TwXA3F7bUe#NorthKorea#DailyNK#InsideNorthKorea#Koreapic.twitter.com/85C12dfdCF— Daily NK (@The_Daily_NK) January 2, 2018 Despite drought conditions and a poor harvest last year in parts of North Korea, government officials are still demanding farmers fulfill a mandatory quota for military provisions.

“All individuals who weren't able to meet the demands have been receiving additional assignments since the very beginning of January," a source in South Hamgyong Province told Daily NK last week.

Another source in a neighboring province also said “these demands are pushing people to their wits' end."Sources told the website residents are not surprised by the annual demands to offer food to the military, but the tactic of officials ransacking homes in some regions is a new development.
