Nigerian teenager stabbed 15-year-old to death after row that started in comments on social media

A teenager has been jailed on his 18th birthday for killing a 15-year-old boy in an alleged row over comments left on social media.

Michael Idehen, 18, who rapped about stabbing people on YouTube, was captured on CCTV plunging a knife into Kyron Webb’s chest in Moston, Manchester on October 17 last year.

During his trial he claimed Kyron had left derogatory comments on a video he posted on Snapchat and even threatened to stab him.

Michael, who turned 18 on Friday, May 11, 2018, was jailed on that same day. He was sentenced to a minimum of 15 years behind bars for the younger boy’s murder.

Michael had previously uploaded a video to YouTube that talked about “cheffing” a slang term for stabbing. The YouTube video called “No Gas” and posted by a group named “MB26” shows Micheal rapping about “trying to chef your friend”. The clip, which appeared online in August 2017, features a number of masked youths.

“He backed his shank [knife], he waived it around, but he didn’t do no cheffing,” the teenager raps.

Manchester Crown Court heard that Michael, who was 17 at the time of the attack and had previous convictions for knife possession and robbery, knew Kyron before it happened. Phone evidence suggested they had been in contact before.

A 17-year-old boy, who was 16 at the time of Kyron’s murder and who cannot be named for legal reasons, was also jailed for five years after pleading guilty to manslaughter.

The attack on Kyron was captured on CCTV. Prior to the fatal attack on October 17, Michael and his co-defendant who was sentenced to five years had taken a bus to Moston to meet up with another group for a “pre-arranged” meeting, prosecutor Nicholas Johnson QC said.

At around 6.45pm, student Kyron arrived in Moston Lane. Micheal walked over to speak to Kyron, who moved to Manchester from south London with his mother. The court heard Idehen’s co-defendant then arrived and moved towards Kyron in an “intimidating manner”.

Kyron and the then 16-year-old moved away for a short time, before Michael’s friend pulled a metal bar from his waistband. The three came back and stood together, and the 16-year-old then made two further “intimidating movements” towards Kyron.

Both defendants moved away, but around a minute later Michael returned to Kyron, who was leaning against a wall, and stabbed him through his heart.

The pair fled, leaving Kyron, who was collapsed on the floor, for dead. Kyron was rushed to hospital, where he died three days later. A knife was found in the bag he was carrying at the time of his death.

Both defendants were arrested the day Kyron died.

A victim impact statement by Kyron’s mother Rachel Webb, summarised by Mr Johnson, said: “She feels she has also died in many ways.”

Mr Johnson said members of Kyron’s family have had to undergo therapy.

A letter Micheal wrote to Kyron’s family was summarised in court. Mr Hayton said: “Whatever else happens to him [Micheal] he will never forgive himself for what he did.

Racer breaks down in police car when he realises he’s mowed down and killed jogger, 18… victim’s father says: ” Our lives have been shattered for a few minutes of reckless fun

Racer breaks down in police car when he realises he

William Dorey, an 18-year-old A-level student, went for a run but never made it home. He was mowed down by two joyriders; Joshua Cherukara, 20, and Harry Cable, 18.

Joshua and Harry were racing each other in Whitley Bay, Tyneside, at the same time William was out jogging. Unfortunately, William was struck by a Renault Megane driven by Joshua, who had been racing Harry’s Vauxhall Corsa along the coast.

Police arrived the scene and arrested the young men responsible for the accident that killed William. Video footage shows the moment Joshua breaks down in tears in the back of a police car moments after the car crash. He is handcuffed and can be seen mouthing “Oh my God”.

Both racers admitted to causing death by dangerous driving and were sent to a young offenders’ institution. Joshua was sent for six years and nine months, while Harry got four-and-a-half years. Both will be banned from driving for four years after their release.

William’s father, Hugh Dorey, 57, described the moment he came across the aftermath of a car crash, not realising his teenage son’s was involved.

He explained that their son had been preparing for his A-Level exams when he decided to go for a run. His parents began to worry when he didn’t return and their worry increased when they saw two police cars flashed past their house.

Mrs Gill Dorey asked her husband to go and check on their son and he drove just a few hundred yards from their home when he came upon the scene of the crash. He said he saw a number of police cars but still “half-expected” his son to appear.

Mr Dorey told the Chronicle Live: “At this point I didn’t know that in front of me was the scene of my son’s fatal accident.”

When he told his wife there had been an accident close to their home in Whitley Bay, North Tyneside, she joined him at the scene. At the site, police asked them if their son wore glasses and when they said yes, they were put in the back of a police car and the police showed them a pair of glasses and smashed mobile phone that belonged to their son and asked if they recognised them.

Mr Dorey revealed that he said something like “oh Jesus Christ” and his wife recognised the phone as belonging to their son.

He said: “She knew that was the end of her life as she knew it.”

They were then taken to identify their son’s body at the same hospital he was born in. They immediately realised it was their son and described the ‘awful’ injuries to his head and face.

Mr Dorey described how his wife threw herself at the door as they left and said that her “baby was dead”.

The grieving father asked the killer drivers how they would feel if they were told by police that their child was killed by internal decapitation.

The family described how their lives have been shattered for a few minutes of “immature, selfish fun”.

Our lives have been shattered. Our loss is immeasurable.

And why? For what? A few minutes of immature, selfish fun. Reckless stupidity at the hands of another. He lost his life in a wholly senseless, random manner.

He only went for a run, not an activity usually associated with the risk of death. Except this time he did not come home. He will never come home.

This is our opportunity to bring home to those responsible what they have done. They have inflicted a terrible wound on our family.

They need to understand the enormity of what they have done, the depth of pain, hurt and anguish they have caused.

For Will’s life to end as it did is such a tragic waste.

He had travelled half way around the world, each time returning safely home.

Yet, even though he was on the pavement he was knocked down and killed a few yards from home, just because he went out for exercise and fresh air. How are you to come to terms with that?

He added:

It seems to be a case of immature, arrogant drivers behaving like idiots.

In a statement at the court hearing of William’s boy racer killers, the family said their lives would never be the same again.

Ghanaian actress, Juliet Ibrahim, has finally reacted to the rumoured split from her Nigerian boyfriend, rapper Iceberg Slim, after deleting all of his photos from her Instagram page.

According to the actress, she decided to take any form of her relationship off my social media to focus on her life and career.

‘Months ago I decided it was time to face my day job and thus took off aspects of my private life off my social media handles. Usually, I follow trending stories about me and have a good laugh but not today.’

‘The only story here is that I decided to take any form of relationship I have off my social media and focus on my life and my career while juggling 2 countries.’

If I need to let the world know about what’s going on in my private life, be rest assured that you will be the first to know.

One dead, four wounded in Paris stabbing attack as police ‘neutralize’ assailant

One dead, four wounded in Paris stabbing attack as police

One person was killed and four others were wounded during a Saturday night knife attack in Paris.


Two of the victims were seriously injured and two others were lightly injured and police officials confirm that the attacker is also dead. There is no known motive for the attack at this time.


French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb praised the cool and quick response by French police who “neutralized” the assailant. “My first thoughts are for the victims in this odious attack,” added Collomb, who made the comments via Twitter.


Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo saluted the courage and professionalism of police, writing on Twitter that they have “again saved lives” and “have all my gratitude.” She also thanked the emergency services who arrived to the attack scene quickly and took charge of the wounded.


The location of the attack is about 10 minutes away by foot from the Paris opera house, known as Palais Garnier, in the city’s touristy 2nd arrondissement, or district.

”President Buhari’s son had his brain surgery In Nigeria, not Germany” Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole says

Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, has denied claims that president Buhari’s son, Yusuf, had a brain surgery in Gemarny. Recall that Yusuf was involved in a ghastly motorbike accident on December 26th last year, leaving him with head injury and a broken limb.

He was taken to an Abuja based hospital where a surgery was conducted on him and afterwards he was flown abroad. Many Nigerians believed his trip to Germany was to undergo a brain surgery. The minister of health however says that is not true.

”The President asked his son to be treated in Nigeria. Even when people were clamouring that his son should be flown abroad, he said no. He just went to Germany for rehabilitation. He had his surgery in Nigeria. I am telling you that the son was treated in Nigeria. Take that from me as the Honourable Minister,” he told Channels TV

The real reasons Beyoncé can’t stand Kim Kardashian

Newsflash: Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé allegedly are not friends. Even though they’re seen together occasionally, the friendship is reportedly rather one-sided, with Kardashian allegedly bending over backward to get into Queen Bey’s good graces but failing miserably. Why aren’t these superstars BFFs?

Well, for starters there’s the Kanye West factor. Kardashian’s rapper/producer husband was already a polarizing figure in the music world even before he started calling out Beyoncé and her husband, Jay-Z, on stage during his disastrous 2016 Saint Pablo Tour. That couldn’t have helped things.

Of course, the whole thing Kim v. Bey feud has also been reduced to the easy explanation that they just don’t have much in common. Kardashian is a reality star whose fame is dependent on sharing her whole life with her fans, whereas Beyoncé keeps her personal life almost entirely disconnected from her career. Could it really be that simple, or is there more to Bey’s seemingly arms-length approach to the first lady of reality TV? Let’s dive into the real reasons Beyoncé can’t stand Kim Kardashian.

Maybe Beyoncé keeps her distance from Kim Kardashian because of Kardashian’s husband, rapper Kanye West, who won’t stop spreading rumors about Bey and her man.

E! News reported that at a stop on his since-cancelled Saint Pablo Tour in November 2016, West ranted from the stage, “Beyoncé, I was hurt ’cause I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won video of the year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling.'” He added, “Now, don’t go trying to diss Beyoncé. She is great … We are all great people. We are all equal, but sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are just to win.”

The expletive-laden tirade went on and on. West eventually set his sites on Bey’s husband, Jay-Z, saying, “Jay-Z, call me, bruh. You still ain’t called me. Jay-Z, call me … Jay-Z: I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man.”

Of course, West’s remarks are his own, but if Kardashian’s only connection to Beyoncé was through West’s tumultuous relationship with Jay-Z, then it’s obvious there would be a strain there. As it turns out, Jay-Z would later confirm the fractured friendship
