Boko Haram kills 8, 30 Injured During Attacks On Kofa
A Nigerian Government official said food aid sent to displaced people has been "diverted", which is code for stolen. It also comes just over a week since the Army successfully repelled an attack by Boko Haram insurgents in Maiduguri.

Perez held the position for the first time between 2000 and 2006, a period during which Real signed Luis Figo, David Beckham and Ronaldo.

Not one club member chose to launch a campaign during that 10-day period, though, and the electoral board confirmed on Monday that Perez has subsequently been elected for a fifth term.

"As no other candidature was put forward to the board ... it is proclaimed that Mr Florentino Pérez Rodríguez is president of Real Madrid", the club said in a statement.

The electoral board also ratified that Fernando Fernandez Tapias, Eduardo Fernandez de Blas and Pedro Lopez Jimenez will continue as Perez's vice presidents.

Madrid have gone from strength to strength in recent years and last season became the first club to retain the Champions League crown, as well as winning LaLiga for the first time since 2012.

The Spaniard returned to the top role at the Santiago Bernabeu in elections in 2009 and picked up where he had left off by breaking the world transfer record twice in a week with the signings of Brazilian Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo.

His second spell has been more successful than his first spell and has overseen three Champions League title in Five years.
