  • Brazilian gang hacks and leaks nude photos of female police officer in revenge

    In what seems to be a crude revenge, a criminal gang in Brazil has leaked nude images of a female police officer for arresting their bossman by hacking into her private social media account.

    According to Media Takeout website, one of the most notorious gangs in Brazil, has lived up to its billing by engaging in a new sort of revenge warfare by leaking the nude photos of a senior female police officer as a way of avenging the arrest of some of their members by the police.

    The boss was arrested by a police posse which included the female officer whose name is given as Julia. Julia has been named as a top police officer of Brazilian Military Police of Rio de Janeiro. In revenge the gang hacked into Julia’s private social media account and stumbled on very personal and intimate selfies of the female cop.

    The gang, upset at the arrest of its members including their leader who was arrested by police, they promptly released the naked photos.

  • Kenyan police arrest 40 Ethiopia’s Oromos for illegal assembly

    NAIROBI, Oct. 3 (Xinhua) — Kenyan police have arrested 40 members of the Oromo, Ethiopia’s largest ethnic group, for holding an illegal meeting in the capital Nairobi.

    Nairobi County Police Commander Japheth Koome said the Oromos were arrested on Sunday evening as they were planning to protest against the Ethiopian government.

    “The 40 Oromos had assembled at the City Park in Nairobi without notifying the police. We are interrogating them,” Koome said Monday, adding that they would be charged in court for illegal assembly.

    The police said some of those arrested were in the country illegally and could be deported by court after the scrutiny of their documents.

    The arrest came hours after a celebration in Ethiopia turned into a stampede that reportedly left at least 50 people dead as police dispersed a crowd at an annual cultural festival of the Oromo people.

    It took place in one of Ethiopia’s most sensitive regions, Oromia, which has seen several months of protests by Oromos demanding wider freedoms. The protests were initially sparked by a land row and have been turning more broadly against the government.

  • Warning: Do not open a Facebook video message sent with your name

    Many of the social media users are said to be sent a video with their name on it. Please do not open it! That is a virus. It begins with a notification on Facebook that a friend of yours has tagged you (potential victim) in a post. The post is actually a video that uses victim’s profile pic as its thumbnail which is quite a shocker for everyone seeing their picture on an unknown video and likely tempt them to click on the video post.

  • Several dead, many injured after crackdown on Oromia protest in Ethiopia

    Several people have died and many injured during a stampede after Ethiopia’s special forces fired teargas and warning shots on Sunday to disperse protesters at the annual Irreecha thanksgiving festival of the Oromia people in Bishoftu.

    The Ethiopian government confirmed the deaths in a statement but did not state figures while opposition groups estimate at least 50 people dead, Reuters reports.

    “As a result of the chaos, lives were lost and several of the injured were taken to hospital … Those responsible will face justice,” the government communications office stated.

    The chairperson of the opposition Oromo Federalist Congress, Merera Gudina, told Reuters that at least 50 people were killed during the stampede while Jawar Mohammed who is the Executive Director of the Oromia Media Network based in the United States reported about 300 dead.

    The Irreecha festival is an annual thanksgiving event celebrated at the sacred grounds of Lake Harsadi in Bishoftu in the Oromia region.

    Among the thousands of festival participants, a number of them marched chanting anti-government slogans and their arms crossed above their heads while Ethiopian Air Force helicopters hovered above the crowd.

     

    Local media report that the shooting and subsequent stampede occured immediately after ruling party officials were booed off when they wanted to address the crowds at the festival.

    Witnesses told Africanews that the helicopter dropped teargas on the people while the police on the ground fired the shots.

    Graphic images posted on social media show people lying on the ground dead while others were being helped by the security forces.

     

    The Oromia region lies south of the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa and is the center of the Oromia protests last year which Human Rights Watch reported that over 400 protesters were killed.

    The government disputed the figures yet hundreds remained in custody without charges after thousands of students, social media activists, and opposition party leaders and supporters were arrested.

    The anti-government protests which continued in other regions including the neighbouring Amhara were held to demand fair distribution of wealth to Oromia and Amhara, which are the poorest in the country.
