See photo of the ill fated Malaysia plane posted earlier by a passenger on board said "in case it disappeared"

Latest update on the ill-fated Malaysia Airline flight MH17 has it that, one of the passengers on board had earlier taken a picture of the plane (left above) and believed to have been posted on Facebook by the Dutch just moments before he boarded the unfortunate plane.

According to the UK Daily Mail, the plane pictured on tarmac, took off from Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport at lunchtime today and was shot down hours later on the Russia-Ukraine border in an 'act of terrorism', killing all 295 people on board.

Cor Pan, who is listed on Facebook as living in Volendam in North Holland, uploaded the picture of the aircraft with the caption: ‘If it disappears, this is what it looks like.’ Continue...

Cor Pan and Neeltje, the lady believed to be his girlfriend and also on board.
The comment is believed to have been a reference to Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 which disappeared while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on 8 March.

After seeing the photo friends initially went along with the joke and wished him a good trip, but their messages quickly turned frantic when news of the crash emerged.

Posting underneath the picture they asked whether his flight was the one that had gone down and said that they were praying that it wasn’t true.

His cousin later posted the flight number underneath the picture and wrote: 'Turns out our cousin Cor was on this plane.’

Friends and family members began to leave touching tributes to the Dutch traveller, with one posting ‘rest in peace’.

Their posts also suggested that he was on board the plane with his girlfriend Neeltje Tol.
One said: ‘Rest in peace Cor and Neel this is surreal, with sympathy for family and friends.’

Another posted: ‘Terrible and unfair. Rest in peace Cor and Neeltje.’

Mr Pan, who lists himself as 'self-employed' on his Facebook page, is thought to have posted the image through a window at the boarding gate, just a few minutes before getting onto the flight which took off at 12:15pm in Amsterdam.

The plane has the words Malaysia emblazoned on the side and appears to be being refuelled.
A total of 151 Dutch passengers are believed to have been on board the plane.

Finally! FIFA lifts ban on Nigeria

Federation of International Football Association FIFA has today lifted the ban placed on Nigeria on July 9th after a high court sitting in Jos sacked the President of the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, Aminu Maigari and other board members. The world football governing body had frowned at the court ruling, stating that the move was a government interference in football activities which is against FIFA policy.

FIFA then directed that a new court order reinstating Maigari and other NFF executives be obtained before it can lift the ban, in which a new court order reinstating the NFF President and other executives was obtained two days ago, Tuesday 15th of July, hence the lifting of the ban today.

Maigari and his board will resume their duties tomorrow and stay there until next month's elections when they could be sacked through the ballot, in line with FIFA's policies.

Congratulations to us! We go do

Evergreen on TLB: Awelewa by Gabriel Afolayan

One of the good things that get me back on track whenever things are not going really well or when I wish to take a break from a strenuous task is music. Even though my mood often dictates the kind of song I listen to, indigenous love songs have never failed my soul scrolling through my playlist.

Even before I own a weblog Gabriel Afolayan has been one of my favourites when it comes to serving the kind of music that suit my soul, 'AWELEWA' (Most Beautiful) by Gabriel Afolayan aka G-Fresh is good for an example. To redeem a dying love in your soul AWELEWA will do wonderfully well.

Evergreen on TLB today is AWELEWA by Gabriel Afolayan. If you have it on your phone already, just locate it and use the play button. And to those who do not, just click DOWNLOAD.
