#BBNaija S7: Chizzy and Rachel will be in the house till the finale – Biggie confirms

BBNaija season 7 riders, Rachel and Chizzy will remain in the BBNaija house until the last day. This was made known by Big Brother Naija via its official Twitter account on Monday, September 5, 2022. This follows concerns raised by fans about the actual purpose of the duo since they were not in the game as fake or real housemates. During the live nominations on Monday evening, some housemates nominated Rachel and Chizzy because they are unaware of their status as riders.

Giving clarification, Big Brother via its Twitter handle @BBNaija wrote; ”Chizzy and Rachel are Riders and will therefore be on the show till the last day. #BBNaija”.

Russia is buying weapons for Ukraine war from North Korea amid severe supply shortages – U.S. Intelligence

The Russian Ministry of Defense is purchasing millions of rockets and artillery shells from North Korea for its ongoing fight in Ukraine, according to a new U.S. intelligence report. The New York Times reported that a U.S. official spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the intelligence determination, revealing that the fact Russia is turning to the isolated state of North Korea demonstrates that “the Russian military continues to suffer from severe supply shortages in Ukraine, due in part to export controls and sanctions.” The report says U.S. intelligence officials believe that the Russians could look to purchase additional North Korean military equipment in the future. The U.S. official did not detail how much weaponry Russia intends to purchase from North Korea. The finding comes after the US recently confirmed that the Russian military in August took delivery of Iranian-manufactured drones for use on the battlefield in Ukraine. The White House said last week that Russia has faced technical problems with Iranian-made drones acquired from Tehran in August for use in its war with Ukraine. Russia picked up Mohajer-6 …
