I'm sure you all know that doctors in Lagos State have been on strike for a while now (Since April 24th). Their reason?

The government has already started recruiting new doctors to replace the sacked ones.

'I'll Probably Have The Worst, Spoiled Little Kid Ever.' - Jay Z

In a clip from Oprah's Master Class: Special Edition, Jay Z said he plans to spoil his little girl to pieces:
Everyone imagines they'll be a great dad until their [kids are] teenagers. Get away from me, Dad. You're embarrassing me. I imagine I'll take things I learned from my mom and things I've learned from raising my nephews and apply that. Then at the end of the day, I just know I'll probably have the worst, spoiled little kid ever."

Boko Haram Says AIT Phone-In Interview Call Is Fake

Islamist militant sect Boko Haram has revealed that a purported telephone call made to the African Independent Television (AIT) by a caller pretending to be a Boko Haram spokesperson was fake.
A source close to the sect told Saharareporters that the no one in the sect or any on its leadership initiated a call threatening to attack Lagos and Abuja in 72 hours.

A Nigerian local TV station-African Independent Television- had played a phone call in which an individual claiming to be a representative of Boko Haram threatened to attack Lagos and Abuja in 72 hours.
The caller also requested that Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan unconditionally  meet with the sect in Yobe state, without security, to discuss the terms of a ceasefire, but our most reliable source said the call was a prank pulled by individuals capitalizing on the hysteria created by Boko Haram's recent attacks in northern Nigeria.

Culled from Vanguard
35-year-old Ali Sani, a bureau de change operator in Apapa area of Lagos, least envisaged the tragedy that loomed ahead,  penultimate Monday,  as he set for his office. Like every other bureau de change operator, Ali called on passers-by to patronise him, in his hard currency  changing business.
Later that day, a telephone call, which signaled the beginning of the end of  Ali, came in with  the caller requesting for fifty thousand dollars. The call, according to his colleagues, came as an answered prayer for the  Kano State born operator  who, reportedly, rallied round to make up the amount. But, unknown to him, the caller had a sinister motive.

Uche Jombo, Van Vicker, others detained at police station for 12 hrs

Star actress Uche Jombo, actor Van Vicker, screenwriter Uduak Isong, Nigerian youth for change founder Michael Bobby Obodo, celeb stylist Yolanda Okereke and a few others were all arrested around 9pm on Thursday May 3rd by policemen from the Bode Thomas police station while shooting a movie scene at the Censor police station in Surulere.

They were all detained at the Bode Thomas police station for over 12 twelve hours. Their offense? The police accused them of using the Censor police station to shoot a movie scene without due process. Meanwhile the nollywood crew said they had gotten clearance from another police officer before they began shooting. The police officer who gave them permission was with them at the station but couldn't do anything to secure their release. He was later queried.

The Nollywood stars passed the night behind the counter and were released yesterday morning, Friday May 4th. Now I hear they plan to send the police a petition through their lawyers.
