The contestants - Muma Gee, Funke Akindele, Daddy Showkey, Bob-Manuel Udokwu, Chioma Chukwuka, Obesere, Weird MC and Dare Art Alade.

The winner gets N7.5million.

Who do you think will win? I'm thinking Daddy Showkey. He probably understands the jungle more than the other celebrities. But Showkey, watch out for Princess. Something tells me that's a woman that shouldn't be underestimated. May the best man win.

Court Removes Dangote as NSE President

A federal high court in Lagos removed business mogul, Alhaji Aliko Dangote as President of Nigerian Stock Exchange [NSE].

The Court, presided over by Justice Lambo Akanbi ruled on the application by some aggrieved shareholders of African Petroleum Plc, who sought to set aside Dangote’s election as NSE president.

The AP shareholders had sued Dangote, Nova Finance and Securities Limited, NSE and others over alleged massive manipulation of AP shares.

But is clear contravention of the court order, the Nigerian Stock Exchange went ahead on August 6, with its scheduled election, at which Dangote was elected President of the Exchange.

Consequent upon this, the shareholders brought another application, through their counsel, Mr Onyebuchi Aneakor, praying the court to set aside Dangote's election.**

Man accused of raping and impregnating daughters

An award-winning video director was unmasked Thursday as a brutal, bizarre serial breeder who repeatedly raped his daughters to create a "pure" bloodline.
Aswad Ayinde, who won an MTV award for directing The Fugees' "Killing Me Softly," fathered six kids with his daughters from the mid-1980s to 2002 - and delivered the babies himself, New Jersey prosecutors said.

Ayinde, 51, who most recently lived in Paterson, N.J., also had nine kids with his ex-wife, Beverly, and at least three more with two other women in Brooklyn, court records show.

"He said the world was going to end, and it was just going to be him and his offspring and that he was chosen," Beverly Ayinde testified at a pre-trial hearing.
Also known as Charles McGill, Ayinde faces the first of five trials next month - one for each daughter he allegedly violated, said Lisa Squitieri, the Passaic County prosecutor handling the case.

Ayinde, held on $1 million bond, was hit with 27 charges including aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, lewdness, child endangerment, aggravated criminal sexual contact and criminal sexual contact.

Ayinde? Oh Lord, don't let this monster be a Nigerian.
What a sick man...

'Jos is a Jungle!' We will kill again! - Fulani Settlers

Jos crisis: Why we struck – Fulani Settlers
...Jang causing more trouble
Friday, March 12, 2010

Five days after the massacre in Jos, the Fulani settlers alleged to have carried out the attack have given a detailed explanation as to why the sad incident occurred.

Speaking to journalists yesterday in Abuja, the Fulani leader and secretary Sultan’s Farmer/Cattle Rearers Conflict Committee, Sale Bayari, said the recent mishap was caused by failure of both the Plateau State Government and the Presidential Committee on Jos Crisis to clearly address the losses of the Fulanis in past crisis.

Bayero, who claimed to be a none stakeholder in the crisis, also said it was unfair for the police to continue to hold the 49 Fulanis arrested so far, adding that what happened was a complete case of jungle justice.

He said: “Some of us have been forced to live like outlaws in Jos. Why would a government turn its own responsibility upside down? Under the circumstances of what has been happening in Plateau State, some people just have to die. Any society that refuses to be just and fair shall become a jungle where only jungle justice shall operate like the case in Plateau State today. There are some people who are very conversant with the jungle. They sleep with snakes, gorilla even at night. So if you turn your state to a jungle state, this is what you get. So far, we have suffered most. Indeed, majority of our killings were carried out in areas where there was strong government presence. When our people were killed or were being killed, we can’t remember seeing Governor Jang, the Gbong Gwom, the Information Commissioner, members of House of Assembly of the areas, neither did anyone of them say a word about what happened to us. Up till today, they are behaving as if nothing ever happened to us and you expect this to just pass away and forever? In Kuru Karama when Aljazeera was beaming the corpses of 150 children and women strewn into the village streets, where was Governor Jang and Gyang Buba? Who has been arrested? Who provided the five Hilux Jeeps that brought the killers? Who has made any effort to fish out the killers. Haba! “The herdsmen have been at the receiving end for no reason whatsoever and it is, therefore, most baffling to hear government now exaggerating the figure of those who lost their lives in what is called reprisal attack at Dogo Nahauwa in order to give the world the impression that those who lost their lives in this incident outweigh any other that happened to other people such as the Fulani. We observe with great dismay and outright taking of sides by the government through its spokesman, Mr. Gregory Yenlong, Commissioner for Information, by saying that 500 were killed while the Police Commissioner was categorically saying 109 people were confirmed killed. Why is the Government denying our own casualties and the loss of property, which we have documented and published in the media while trying to convince the world to accept their own speculation as fact? Why didn’t the government challenge us to prove the loss of 215 people in the January 17 Jos crisis? Why didn’t the government respond to our petition to the Federal Government through the force CID that we wrote to only to deny that what took place was a reprisal attack as stated by the police. Whether it was a reprisal attack or not, between 2001 to the recent crisis, the Berom have killed over 365 herdsmen in cold blood in Jos South, Barkin Ladi and Rayon Local Gocervment Areas. Because the Fulani are local herdsmen who are not beneficiaries of the state, national and international media, deaths of our children, women and men never occurred and were never reported and the purported reprisal theory was never justified. If, we may ask, why then this attack took place where it happened and nowhere else outside the three Berom local government areas that we alleged we lost 215 people? We want an answer from Jang."

I think the federal government should declare war on the killers of these children. That's what I think.

What do you think of Bayari's statement to the press? And why is his ass still roaming about talking to journalists? Shouldn't he be in jail or something?

How young is too young for a cell phone?

My neighbour's eight year old daughter has a cellphone.
I find it ridiculous.
But maybe I'm the one being ridiculous.
So I ask - How young is too young for a cell phone?
