A teenager turned into a cannibal after watching series of crime shows on TV, police have claimed. 
Vikesh Kumar, 16, is said to have confessed to murdering a nine-year-old boy, eating parts of his thigh and drinking his blood.

Cops said Kumar, who likes scoffing raw meat, also removed his heart and slung it by his school - because he hated going there and thought it would have to be closed when the organ was found.

Kumar reportedly lured relative Deepu, who had the same surname, to his home over a string for a kite.

He strangled him before cutting his body into six pieces, washing them and stuffing them into a sack, said officers.

He then allegedly dumped the bag and its gruesome contents 50 yards from the Deepu’s home.

Petty criminal Kumar was inspired by TV programmes, said police who arrested him in Ludhiana, India, on Friday

Report via Vanguard reveals that an alleged beheading of a young man by a chief hunter, purportedly for the burial ceremony of a high chief, weekend, led to hostilities between two neighbouring communities in Obubra Local Government Area of Cross River State, which has left over 10 people dead and many houses razed.

The conflict between the people of Ogwurude and their Oyidah neighbours began when head hunters from Oyidah community allegedly harvested the head of a young man which they intended to use in the burial ceremony of a chief.

A resident, Clement Ekpe, said: “Some head hunters chased the okada boy, who was returning from Oyidah Market with a lady and caught up with him at Ogwurude Junction. They asked the lady to run into the bush, killed the boy and cut off his head. “When the lady got home and narrated what happened, some Ogwurude youths rushed to the junction, where they found the headless body of the young man. They followed the bloodstains on the road to Oyidah community. 

“They informed Oyidah’s Village Head about the incident and asked that those who carried out the act be brought out and handed over to the police. “However, the Village Head could not produce the perpetrators and that led to a reprisal attack that night from the Ogwurude people.” 

Another source, who could not confirm the exact number of people killed in Oyidah, said as many as seven people died, but that two persons from Ogwurude were killed in the fracas, while many houses were set ablaze in both communities.

Mr. Jude Ngaji, Cross River State Security Adviser, said peace had returned to the feuding communities with security operatives deployed to the area, while efforts are on to hold meetings with leaders of both communities to find lasting solution to the conflict.

Gambia's former President Yahya Jammeh yesterday left the country in the wake of elections that ousted him after 22 years in power. He boarded a plane to Guinea and from there will travel on to exile in Equatorial Guinea, regional group Ecowas says.

Mr Jammeh was defeated in December's election by Adama Barrow but went on to challenge the results.

Mr Barrow has been in Senegal but says he will return to The Gambia soon.

In an interview with the BBC, Mr Barrow said he wanted to create a truth and reconciliation committee to investigate allegations of human rights abuses during Mr Jammeh's time in office.

Marcel de Souza, president of the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas), said the military operation that had sent West African troops into The Gambia in support of Mr Barrow, was now ended, although some would remain to ensure security.

I believe in a creator cause it only makes sense that creations and
creatures should have a creator and since so be the case I call him God, 
not only because am one of his but because he Governs the galactic army Oversees it's operations and Direct it's affairs.

Even logic supports my claim, already I can hear critics say it's cause u believe the bible.

Atleast have got bases for mine, what's yours. I ain't here to argue and
find faults but truth is a parcel sitting and waiting only if u open minded
enough to open it.

Might hurt, the pain is yours own it, let go the lie, disown it. There in lies the true essence of life.
