Photo: Nigerian and South African nationals, 7 others arrested with high-end narcotics in India

The Hyderabad police on Wednesday, July 19, busted a drug racket by nabbing 9 persons including two foreigners and seized high-end narcotics like LSD and MDMA besides cocaine from their possession.

"Nine persons including two foreign nationals - a Nigerian and a South African have been arrested from here and 300 grams cocaine, 42 grams of MDMA, 27 LSD blots, one car and one airgun have been seized from them," Deputy Commissioner of Police (Task Force) B Limba Reddy said.

LSD, sold as tablets and liquid, is known to be one of the most potent mood-changing chemicals, while MDMA, commonly referred to as 'molly' or 'ecstasy', is a popular recreational or party drug.

R Kelly's women aren't in captivity, they just enjoy so much luxury, they refuse to leave his home

Read the TMZ below...
R Kelly is guilty of pampering women with so much luxury they become dependent on him and don't want to leave, even though they can ... according to family members of one of the women.

Our sources, related to the woman -- who was 20 when she moved in with Kelly last year -- say she met him backstage during a concert meet and greet. She communicated with the singer for about 6 months before he asked her to live with him ... and she agreed.

However, we're told the woman -- who is not an aspiring singer like Joycelyn Savage -- has been free to leave Kelly's pads in Illinois and Georgia ... and has done so on multiple occasions. We're told she's flown out-of-state, unaccompanied to visit family.

She's never stayed longer than a week and always returned to Kelly, who she describes as "her man."
So, why does she stay? Our sources say the woman has been flown to Beverly Hills for shopping sprees, and Kelly also buys high-priced handbags, lingerie, shoes and spa trips for all of the girlfriends. We're told Kelly openly says he "wants to shower them in luxury."

Not that they think Kelly is totally innocent. One family member believes Kelly has a "calculating, methodical process to groom naive girls" -- and confirmed he takes their smartphones.

The woman has never mentioned any physical abuse ... nor has her family seen evidence of it. While they don't see anything criminal about Kelly's tactics, they feel he uses psychological abuse to make the girls fully reliant on him.

In another 10 years, we will be measuring with the largest economies in the world - Osinbajo speaks during his visit to Zamfara State

The Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday arrived Zamfara State for the commissioning of a number of state projects. 

Speaking during his visit to the palace of the Emir of Gusau, Alhaji Ibrahim Bello, he described Nigeria as one of the greatest countries in the world.  Read his statement below...

"Let me begin by saying that am very honoured  by this warm welcome that has been given me and l bring very warm greetings from President Muhammadu Buhari whom l had the pleasure of seeing in London just about this time last week," he said. 

"It’s important that everywhere in our country is safe for our people to work and live and I am especially pleased to see that His Royal Highness has maintained this within this kingdom and anyone can approach him and everyone can live here.

This  I think is very worthwhile and l must commend you for this great work that you are doing.
And we have been around to see the works of his Excellency, the governor and in-fact that’s what we are spending the whole of today doing.

We have been here since 11am in the morning and we have been to Gunmi, we are still going round the state and all of these shows that there is lot of work going on and we are extremely proud of the work that Governor Yari is doing and that our great party, the APC is doing also in this state.
The message that l have is only to say that this country is one of the greatest countries in the world, there is no question at all about  that. We see that in another ten years, probably we will be measuring with the 15th largest economies in the world.

A lot of that will depend on how hard we work but more importantly on our staying united. The reason why we are such an important country is that we are a big country and we are diverse, we have arable land everywhere, solid minerals everywhere, even here in Zamfara State.

The Federal Government  is committed to developing all of the mineral resources especially here in Zamfara State. We intend to work very hard on developing mineral resources and we must ensure that  all of these places are safe to live and to do business.
Our country's size is important and the diversity of  our people and resources  are important. But we must stay together to be able to reap the fruit of our size and the development of this country. We must remain united to reap the fruit.

There are many countries in Africa, some of them are not bigger than Zamfara State, in fact many of them are not as big as Zamfara State and they are countries in  Africa.
When you look at the sheer size and the diversity of Nigeria, we have the potentials of becoming one of the truly great countries of the world and l think that with the hard-work that we are seeing and with the right leadership, leadership committed to the people, committed to delivering services to the people, we can really make a difference, we can become what God has purposed and planned for us to be.

I want to thank you again, Your  Royal Highness for this warm welcome and to say that we remain solidly with you and will work with you to ensure peace and stability in this place and also to thank you for all that you are doing to support the governor for ensuring that this place is safe for all to live in.

LG Election: Lagos extends restriction of movement

The Lagos State Government on Wednesday extended the restriction of movement across the State noting that it had been slightly expanded and will now be enforced between 7 am and 3pm on Saturday July 22, to allow for a smooth conduct of the Local Government elections and unhindered participation.

In a statement issued by the State's Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, the Government also reiterated the call for a peaceful and orderly conduct by the electorates on Saturday as the State holds elections that will usher in new Chairmen and Councillors in the 20 Local Government and 37 Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) across the State.
According to the Commissioner, the State Government and security agencies will leave no stone unturned in ensuring a free and fair election, while ensuring safety of electoral officials and voters.
He also urged residents to be peaceful and orderly in casting and protecting their votes in their respective wards for Chairmen and councilors who are expected to drive development at the third tier of government.
Ayorinde explained that as the election that would bring on board a new set of public officers for the next four years at the local government level, the restriction of movement will allow the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) and the security agencies to distribute electoral materials in good time and ensure a seamless electoral process.
"The police and other security agencies have been maintaining law and order since the commencement of campaign by political parties. They are poised to ensure that the voting on Saturday is conducted smoothly without public disturbance,” he said.
He added that all political parties, candidates and their supporters as well as the general public are assured of safety throughout the period of voting and collation.
The Commissioner also thanked Lagosians for always being peace-loving, while urging them to perform their civic obligation by trooping out with their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) "to show their commitment to participatory democracy and the importance of development at the local government level."

Blac Chyna says 'there's no turning back' to Rob Kardashian

Blac Chyna says she's done with Rob Kardashian and there's no going back on that after what he did to her online. Talking to People magazine, Blac Chyna said;

"I'm glad I'm relieved of [Rob], but damn, why did I have to get relief in this way?” she told the mag. "I feel like God does certain things — not to hurt you, but to show you your true strength. I feel like, if I can come out of this, I can come out of anything."

"I'm not going to take something that happened to me in the past into my future,” she continued. "First and foremost, I'm going to make myself happy because once I'm happy, then Dream can be happy and then King [her son with Tyga] can be happy and then everybody else around me can be happy."

Chyna said Rob crossed a line when he started sharing her nude photos with the world.
"It's actually against the law," she said, referencing the California revenge porn law. "If I was to go and do a very artsy, high-end photo shoot exposing my breasts, that's my choice. This is my body. It's my right. Once somebody else does it, it's just not right. I'm hoping that somehow, some way, this will let [more people] know, 'Don't do it.'"

Her only worry when it comes to his tweets about her:
"When somebody that's actually been the closest to you says these things, other people are going to believe it. But the people that I actually care about, my family and friends, they're all I worry about. I'm not going to sit here and hide in my house over somebody else being hurt or jealous or insecure."

She told tthe magazine that other women have thanked her for going public with her fight against Rob, inspiring them to take similar action.

"I just want to voice my story — voice what's real — because at the end of the day, the person next to me could possibly be going through the same thing," she added. "For people to actually look up to me really means a lot. These types of things, they happen every day. A lot of women, they don’t address it. See it, recognize it — but don't be tainted by it. Just be strong and positive."

WTF? This supposed to be the wax figure of Beyonce?
