If I spend $1000 (N170,000) on a phone it better last forever! The new iPhone 6 came out last week Friday and from New York to London, Apple fans queued for days for the privilege to become the first to own the highly coveted phone.

It’s been barely a week and owners of the brand new iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus are reporting major issues with their phones “bending” or “warping” when they are left in their trouser pockets for a small period of time. Many have taken to Twitter using the hashtag #BendGate to vent their frustration about the new phone. Many have complained that their days old phone bends out of shape when put in a tight pocket, while others have demonstrated that the phone can be bent by hand!

This is a www.that1960chick.com EXCLUSIVE!

Source tell me that Femi Otedola owned Forte Oil PLC is set to buy Oando Downstream Assets. There have been rumours for some time about Forte’s interest in acquiring the downstream assets of Oando PLC and just last week the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) announced that Forte was in talks to acquire “a downstream oil company” but it did not say which.

I can authoritatively tell you it’s Oando PLC Downstream.

My sources close to Oando PLC tell me the sale is going down for about $350 million (USD). Another source informs me that Oando PLC has a debt overhang in the region of $2 billion so this sale will probably go towards offsetting some of that debt.
