Attempted Robbery On Arik Air Flight: Suspect & Victim Arrested

THISDAY Newspaper report:

Flight crew of Nigeria’s major carrier, Arik Air, were vindicated over constant allegations of stealing passengers money and other valuables, when a passenger was caught stealing another passenger’s N200,000 cash at the weekend.
The male passenger, who was seated in the business class cabin with his victim on flight W3 162 ABV- LOS, Abuja to Lagos, was said to have ransacked his neighbour’s bag on seat 3C and taken the N200,000, during which process he was sighted by another passenger, who immediately asked the victim to check his bag.

The other passenger (victim) quickly checked his bag and found out the sum was missing and he reported to the head of the cabin crew who alerted the captain of the flight.

THISDAY gathered that upon landing the plane at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, the captain called the aviation security officials of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) who promptly arrested the suspect and the owner of the money and took both of them away.

Aviation security later transferred the suspect, the owner of the money, and the exhibit to the domestic wing police station of the airport for further investigation and possible prosecution.
Confirming the incident, a senior security official of FAAN explained that the authority was briefed about the incident and that the matter was taken to the police to handle. “Yes, I got the report that our men arrested the suspect and with his exhibit he was handed over to the police,” the official said.
However, when THISDAY visited the domestic airport police station, the Divisional Police Officer, Fidelia Victor, confirmed the incident but said that she did not have the details, promising that she would have more information to give when she has been briefed.


Another Arik Air source told THISDAY that such incidents were not rare and whenever they happened the cabin crew would be accused by the passengers.
“But this shows that there are passengers whose intention is to come and rob others in the aircraft. This is surprising and to think of the fact that he was in the business class cabin adds to the surprise,” the source added.

THISDAY also learnt that the suspect who was caught in the act did not deny nor resist arrest, but obediently followed the aviation security officials that consequently took him to the police.

Surprise, You are a Owner Now; Man Orders TV from Amazon, Gets Assault Rifle

Now how am I supposed to watch the Olympics?
After ordering a new flat-screen TV from Amazon, a Washington D.C. man got quite the shock when his package arrived without a flatscreen TV inside.
But it wasn’t empty. Instead, his shipment contained a semi-automatic rifle with a 20-round mag and an MSRP price of a little over $2,000.
The gun was a Sig Sauer SIG716, to be exact. But honestly, it doesn’t really matter which assault rifle shows up to your front door instead of your new television. I’d say it’s pretty strange either way.
The surprised new gun owner, Seth Horvitz, tells FOX 5 D.C. that he ordered the TV through a third party via Amazon.
“[Police] were a little confused at first, they’ve never seen anything quite like it,” says Horvitz. “They just took my information and then said we’ll handle this weapon because it’s illegal to keep here. It’s illegal to transport in a car, so it can’t be returned.”
Here’s the gun in question (fully assembled):
sig 716 carbine rifle
Apparently, the gun’s actual destination was a gun store in Pennsylvania, according to shipping papers. But just how did it wind up at Mr. Horvitz’s apartment doorstep? Police are currently investigating.
Although Horvitz had to know something was amiss when he saw a short, rectangular box that couldn’t possibly fit a flatscreen TV, opening it up and seeing an assault rifle must have been quite the experience. It’s kind of scary that the weapon was just sitting in his apartment hallway for a while – someone could have themselves a brand new large caliber carbine right now.
Strangely enough, this isn’t the first strange shipping story involving Amazon we’ve heard this year. Back in January, a college student in Kansas found a bag of cocaine inside a used bookshe ordered via Amazon’s Warehouse Deals program.

Surface is a must for Microsoft, say chip makers

http://cdn2.digitaltrends.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/windows-surface-tablet-colors.jpg
Commenting on recent complaints from PC brand vendors and ODMs about Microsoft's moves over its Surface tablet PC, sources from first-tier chip makers pointed out that the release of Surface is a must for Microsoft since Windows 8 is designed specifically for handheld consumer electronics devices such as tablet PCs and smartphones.

Since Microsoft needs to find out more about the differences in usage between consumer electronics products and PCs in order to successfully enter into the global smartphone and tablet PC markets, and expand its income sources, entering the market itself is the fastest method to achieve its goal, the sources noted.
The sources pointed out that after a long discussion with Microsoft's Windows 8 R&D team, they discovered that the global PC market is not the only target that Microsoft wishes to focus on for Windows 8 since the company basically has no competitor in the market.
To satisfy tablet PC and smartphone needs, Microsoft has changed the user interface and applications of Windows 8 hoping to attract consumers and drive up its performance.
Since Microsoft is already cooperating closely with several first-tier smartphone vendors, the company is not concerned about Windows 8-based smartphones, but for the tablet PC market, since Apple, Google and Amazon are gradually gaining advantages, while devices are also slowly devouring notebook demand and starting to impact Microsoft's income from Windows licensing for notebooks, Microsoft has decided to enter the market itself in order to create the best Windows 8 usage experience with full control over hardware, software and firmware.
Although Microsoft will maintain its cooperation with Taiwan-based PC brand vendors and ODMs to expand Windows 8's market share, the sources believe that in the tablet PC market, Taiwan-based PC players' future fate will be picking up the leftovers from first-tier players, and the relationship between Microsoft and Taiwan PC players may become less integrated.
However, the sources are also pessimistic about Microsoft's move in pushing its own tablet PC since most similar cases in the past ended with failure due to fierce competition.

Fulani Herdsmen Strike Again On Lagos-Ibadan Expressway

 

A commercial motorcyclist, popularly called okada rider was on Monday stabbed in the stomach by two hoodlums suspected to be Fulani herdsmen on the long bridge end of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
It was learnt that the victim, Mr. Owolabi Habib, had picked his assailants at Berger, Lagos, who posed as passengers and claimed they were going to New Kara, located around the long bridge.
A source within Habib’s family said, “As soon as they got near their destination and Owolabi slowed down, one of the men pulled out a long knife and stabbed him in the stomach.
“Habib told us that he abandoned his okada and fled to save himself. But the stab was so deep that his intestine came out.” It was learnt that a motorist later rescued Owolabi and rushed him to the Lagos State Accident and Trauma Centre at Tollgate.
Findings on Wednesday showed that Owolabi had been referred to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. A doctor at the centre, who declined to give his name, said, “The wound he sustained needs intensive care. That is why he was moved to LASUTH.”
It would be recalled that a retired Brigadier-General, Sylvester Iruh, was on July 7, 2012, killed on the bridge by suspected Fulani herdsmen as he was changing the tyre of his car.
