Nigeria National League (NNL) side Mighty Jets FC have sacked 40 players for below par performances. Mighty Jets FC who last played in Nigeria’s top division are currently in seventh place in the 13-team Northern Conference of the NNL.

The
Jos-based side fired 40 players from their 65-man playing squad and
have added 10 players in a bid to make their season better.
According to the sporting director of the club Benedict Akwuegbu, the sack was to cut off unproductive players.
We had a big squad of 65 players, too crowded and unproductive, so we had to release 40 players,” the former Nigeria international told BBC Sport.

We
only need 35 players for the season and some players were not even
registered but training with the club. It was just too much.
“What
we’ve done is retain the ones who have something to offer and bring in
ten new players as well. It’s like separating the wheat from the chaff.
“The atmosphere has changed now and we now have a squad capable of fighting in our tough quest for promotion.”
Akwuegbu also revealed that Mighty Jets FC will continue to release players at the end of the season.
Mighty
Jets won the Nigeria’s top division title in 1972 and won the NNL title
in 2003. With that win, they were promoted to the top division where
they only played a season before going back to the NNL.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
