Masquerade rapes undergraduate nursing mother

                                                  The victim, Ngozi Ugwu.                                 The masquerade

Tension mounts in Opi, Nsukka Local Government Area, Enugu State as masquerades took turn in the series of rape stories synonymous with the community.  The alleged rape of a female student, Ngozika Ugwu, presented mixed feelings and reactions to what may have bedevilled the community in the recent past.
Rape stories in Opi, a community in the university town of Nsukka, have occupied major national dailies, hitting banner headlines, from the three quarters that make up the community, Idi, Ogbozalla and Ibeku.
In 2011, the story of the rape of women between 70 and 80 years spread like wild fire in the country, raising eyebrows on the motive for such inhuman and barbaric act by, especially, youths of the community. Some of them  were fingered and allegedly arrested, interrogated by the police but could not be persecuted because of want of  evidence.

What do you guys think about Goldie's meltdown yesterday?

Goldie broke down in tears yesterday in the BBA House after another housemate, Prezzo, told her they were 'just good friends'.

Goldie sat on his bed with tears streaming down her face repeating over and over again "just good friends, just good friends," while shaking her head. She later went to her own bed and continued to cry. She screamed, vomited and almost choked on her own puke. At a point she was gasping for air and struggling to breathe.

She was devastated that someone called her 'just good friends'? I don't get it...for those who watched it, did you? Check out the video after the cut...

'Jonathan’s UNILAG Name Change a Gift Horse' - Prof Wole Soyinka

His statement below...
This is one gift horse which, contrary to traditional saying, must be inspected thoroughly in the mouth.
Primary from all of us must be a plea to the MKO Abiola family not to misconstrue the protests against the naming of the University of Lagos after their heroic patriarch.
Issues must be separated and understood in their appropriate contexts. The family will acknowledge that, among the loudest opposing voices to Jonathan’s gift horse, are those who have clamoured tirelessly that MKO Abiola, the Nigerian nation’s president-elect, be honoured nationally, and in a befitting manner.

UNN student commits suicide this morning

A student from the university sent me a mail about what happened in their school early this morning. The students of University of Nigeria, Nsuka, woke up to find one of their own hanging from a rope in an unfinished Franco building beside the hockey pitch in their school. Roommates of the dead student said he left the room around 2am this morning and they thought he had gone to study, only for his corpse to be found dangling from a rope this morning. He's a 3rd year Physics and Astronomy student in his early 20's. A purported suicide note which read, "The controversy is over" was discovered near him.

The dead student, now identified as Onyebuchi Okonkwo had a mental illness last year and was hospitalized at UI for one month. So so sad. May his soul rest in peace...amen

You will find the interview after the cut. Also I did an interview with Bella Naija last week. You will also find a link to the BN interview after the cut...enjoy...:-)

Dear LIB readers: How do I survive my ex-boyfriend's wedding day?

I woke up to this email this morning...from a LIB reader
We have a three year old son together, my ex and I were together for six years until we broke up April last year. I was hoping for a reconciliation because I still love him but he met another woman late last year and their introduction and traditional wedding is this Thursday and Saturday. I didn't even know they were serious like that because he was still a part of my life. He treated me like he still loved me and totally hid his plans from me until the last minute. I am angry and devastated and do not know if I will survive this weekend. Short of killing myself, I don't know what else to do. Please share this with your readers, I need help.
Sad situation. Please she needs advice...

The face of the homeless man who ate another man's face before being shot dead by police

                 Surveillance footage shows the two naked men after the attack                   Rudy Eugene

31 year old homeless man Rudy Eugene was shot dead by police on Saturday May 27th after he was seen chewing off the face of another homeless man while high on drugs. Rudy chewed off 75% of his victims face in the most horrific attack that has left the victim battling for his life in the hospital.

A man was cycling off the MacArthur Causeway on Saturday afternoon when he saw a naked man tearing pieces of flesh from another naked man's face at the side of a freeway. The cyclist, who later told reporters that it was the most gruesome, traumatic thing he'd ever seen in my life, called the police to the scene. When the police couldn't get Eugene to stop the savage attack, they shot him dead.

To see what's left of the face of the victim, then continue...but please be warned, it's extremely graphic. If you don't want to see it, do not continue...

ASUU plans to resist UNILAG's change of name

The chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Lagos branch, Dr Karo Ogbinaka, has said that the union will resist the recent change of the university's name.

Dr Ogbinaka said:
We are resisting it, all the unions and the students will resist it, the Alunmus will resist it. The truth about the whole thing is that it shows the level of intelligence of those people in government. Nobody will change Harvard's name, nobody will change Cambridge's name to Winston Churchill University. University of Lagos is a brand, for 50 years. The first university established by Act of Parliament and one man trying to score cheap political point. When people go outside and you ask them what university are you from? What name will you pronounce? They'll ask is it a new university? Is it the name of a toothpaste? It's a senseless thing and are going to resist it. Karo said
