Tuface Idibia Shot + Al Mustapha granted bail

Tuface Idibia Shot

I just heard that hip hop music star, Innocent Idibia popularly known as Tuface, was attacked and shot last night by unidentified gun men at about 8:30 pm, at Cele bus stop, along the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway, on his way home from the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Ikeja. He had just arrived the country from London.

Sources said the shots fired by the gunmen hit Tuface on his thigh and he was rushed to Cedar Group Hospital, 202 Road, B Close, Festac Town, Lagos, where he's currently receiving treatment.

Ifeanyi Orji, the elder brother of Faze, who was driving the red Honda Accord (Bullet) car also carrying 2face, had his left hand bruised after the encounter with the gunmen believed to be robbers.

A few days ago, I listed 10 reasons why Nigeria is a beautiful country...well, there are a thousand reasons why Nigeria is a messed up country. This incident is one reason why.

Please, say a little prayer for him...

Al Mustapha granted bail

Also, I saw on the news today that Major Al Mustapha, the former chief security officer of the late dictator, Sani Abacha, who has been in prison for the past nine years, was granted bail today. Does this man deserve his newly found freedom?

Also, former Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, has been appointed World Bank MD...

I'm feeling a little depressed about this 2face story...hope he gets better soon. May God take care of him.

The one person that brings smiles and hope to so many nigerian youth both at home and in the diaspora.
Nigeria is a truly a jungle.
Evil men who steal our money drive around freely and no one attacks them but a decent guy can't.
And why does everyone know the hospital where he's receiving treatment.
Have we no common sense about security?

I've all the stories but the one about Al Mustapha.

I believe 2face will recover soon coz the doctor confirmed that he's responding to treatment.

We should all pray fervently for 2face quick recorvery..It's soooo sad that no one is safe in naija..This is one of the reasons many nigerians in d diaspora are scare stiff to go home..lack of security.If i were 2face upon my recorvery i would pack my baggages and kids and leave d country for good..:)))

On Al-Mustafa..Left to me alone, he and his cohorts would rot in kirikiri..the evil that men do lives with them and after them..No man is an island, no man is untouchable!

Well done Linda.

I heard 22 pellets were removed from his thigh.
People can be wicked!!!This is not fair at all.
I so certain that this has to be connected with the awards and accolades he received in london.
Tuface will be alive and well and things can only get better for him whether the evil people like it or not.I'm so angry!!!!

Babe, i'm also depressed cos i really like Tuface as well. Thank God it wasn't a fatal shot. I trust God that he'd be okay.

About Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, she's one of my all time favourite Nigerian icons and is well deserving of all her achievements.

OBJ thought he had messed her up by cutting her out of that United Nations post. Well he can now shove it where the sun don't shine!!!

'Til he dies, OBJ can never be like Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala. Look at all her educational achievements alone. A Harvard educated woman. And look at when OBJ is going to "school"! *hiss*

Long live Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala. We Nigerians are mightily proud of you!!!

I've said it before, the only thing that attracts Nigerians back to Nigeria is not the situation there, its because blood is thicker than water and our loved ones there!!!
