Anthony Joshua wants to make sure he is not nursing his boxing wounds well into old age after he retires from boxing.

The British-Nigerian said in a recent interview that he is going to judge a part of his legacy with his health.

“In boxing, people walk in the gym one way and not many walk out the same way, because of the trauma and the stuff they put their body through,” Joshua told Men’s Health. “I want my legacy to be, I walked out healthy.

Three killed as cultists clash in Sagamu

No fewer than three persons have been killed as young men suspected to be cultists overran Sagamu, the headquarters of Sagamu Local Government, Ogun State.

DAILY POST gathered that the young men, who are members of the Eiye and Aiye confraternities, relaunched their usual supremacy battle on Tuesday, shooting at one another.

As at Saturday, three persons were said to have been shot dead in the ongoing fracas that has brought commercial activities to a halt in some parts of Sagamu.

Locals said several other persons sustained injuries in the attack, sending shivers down the spines of residents.

A reliable source told our correspondent that the man, simply identified as Matey, was shot in the head by some yet-to-be identified persons.

As Buhari leaves, bandits occupy more territories

Before one can think of governing a group of people, they must feel safe from threats of attacks and fear of being killed.

When President Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in to office in 2015 to begin his first term and in 2019 following his re-election, he promised to defend the constitution and protect the people. His three-point agenda was to tackle insecurity, improve economy and curb corruption.

In few days , precisely on May 29, President Buhari will hand over to his successor after about eight years as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

And as he prepares to retire to the comfort of his home in Daura, Katsina state, the citizens remain as unsecured as he met them, if not worse, having failed to tame insecurity. The economy did not improve. And corruption is far from being curbed. He came, he saw and he leaves behind unfinished work.
