Alabama museum unveils restored Greyhound bus for Freedom Rides' 60th anniversary
The Alabama Historical Commission on Tuesday officially unveiled a restored Greyhound bus as part of a 60th anniversary exhibit commemorating the 1961 Freedom Rides protesting the segregation of bus terminals. The commission unveiled the bus, which was in service at the time of the protests, during a ceremony at its Freedom Rides Museum in Montgomery, Ala., on Tuesday to mark the date the first group of Freedom Riders left on a bus from Washington, D.C., to New Orleans. Among the first 13 riders was young civil rights leader John Lewis, who went on to represent Georgia for decades in the U.S. House.
"The commissioner of police, CP Mohammed Lawal Bagega wishes to advise criminals to vacate Kwara State, as the Command possesses the capacity to deploy all legal means to deal with criminals, if that is what it will take to ensure the good people of Kwara live in peace at all times," Okasanmi said.
The decapitated victim was identified as Mohammed in Ajase Ipo, but his age has not been released.
TVC News Nigeria reported that Moses is 24 years old.
On Monday at about 6:30 a.m., law enforcement team Operation Harmony stopped the commercial bus along Ajase Ipo/Ilorin road before making the gruesome discovery when it searched Moses' bag.
While Moses was apprehended on the vehicle, his partner reportedly fled. It was unclear at press time if the second suspect was captured.
Hundreds show up in Nebraska for fight over name Josh
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A fight over the name of Josh drew a crowd from around the country to a Nebraska park Saturday for a heated pool-noodle brawl. It all started a year ago when pandemic boredom set in and Josh Swain, a 22-year-old college student from Tucson, Arizona, messaged others who shared his name on social media and challenged them to a duel. Hundreds showed up at Air Park in Lincoln — a location chosen at random — to participate in the silliness.
Moses later took authorities to where the victim's body was dumped in order for it to be recovered and transferred to a local hospital for an autopsy.
Police Commissioner Bagega directed the state criminal investigation department for Kwara to "thoroughly investigate the case" and arrest anyone that is found to be connected to the crime.
"With the rate of insecurities, one has to be very careful and vigilant,"user @toji316 wrote in response to the press release Okasanmi shared on Twitter about Moses' arrest. "Most especially avoid unnecessary night walk."
