21 Boko Haram detainees killed after a foiled jailbreak at the SSS headquarters in Abuja.

My son took ill and was admitted for a couple of days. We have just been discharged today.

Back to the matter on ground, there was a major chaos at the State Security Service (SSS) headquarters in Abuja yesterday, 30th March 2014 after a botched jailbreak by some Boko Haram Detainees. According to reports a warder went to the cells to feed the terrorists when one of them struck him on the head with his handcuff. This led the other terrorists to join in and a gun battle ensued between the members of the military and the criminals.
The attempted jailbreak got the whole nation in panic after many thought the gun battle happened at the presidential villa which is only a stone throw from the SSS headquarters.
Marilyn Ogar, the spokesperson for the Department of State Security Services (SSS) said yesterday that 21 detained terrorists died during the attack.
"Following our earlier releases, it has been established that eighteen (18) casualties were recorded, while two (2) Service personnel sustained serious injuries. Three (3) other detainees who sustained gunshot injuries during the incident have also died.
"Meanwhile, investigation is still ongoing to ascertain the immediate and remote causes.
"We wish to state that the roads leading to the office were cordoned-off to prevent possible assistance from external collaborators. During this period, the precinct of the office and adjoining neighbourhoods were thoroughly searched.
"We wish to restate our commitment to the safety of the people and the Nigerian nation at large." Marilyn Ogar said in a further statement released yesterday.

Missing Malaysian flight MH370 crashed into the Southern Indian Ocean, no survivor!

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which disappeared over two weeks ago en route to Beijing, crashed thousands of miles away in the southern Indian Ocean, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said on Monday, citing new satellite data.

All 239 people on board were presumed dead, airline officials said.

Analysis of satellite information from British company Inmarsat had shown that the Boeing 777's last position was in the Indian Ocean west of Perth, Australia, Najib said in a statement.

"This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites," he said. "It is therefore, with deep sadness and regret, that I must inform you that, according to this new data, Flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean."

He added that the families of the passengers and crew had been informed.

"For them, the past few weeks have been heart-breaking; I know this news must be harder still," he said.

After the announcement, there were hysterical scenes at the Beijing hotel where many of the relatives of those on board are staying. More than 150 of the passengers were Chinese.

People wailed, cried and dropped to the floor. One woman shouted out: "It's not possible, it's not possible."

A Reuters reporter on the scene saw at least four people being carried away on stretchers.

Najib's comments came as an Australian navy ship was close to finding possible debris from the jetliner after a mounting number of sightings of floating objects that are believed to parts of the plane. The search site is about 2,500 km (1,550 miles) southwest of Perth, in icy sub-Arctic seas that are in one of the most remote parts of the globe.

The objects, described as a "grey or green circular object" and an "orange rectangular object", were spotted on Monday afternoon, said Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, adding that three planes were also en route to the area.

Flight MH370 vanished from civilian radar screens less than an hour after taking off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing on March 8. No confirmed sighting of the plane has been made since and there is no clue what went wrong.

Attention and resources in the search for the plane had shifted from an initial focus north of the Equator to an increasingly narrowed stretch of rough sea in the southern Indian Ocean, thousands of miles from the original flight path.
