Five boys gang rape female student of Abia State University

Screen shot of the gang rape of ABSU student. I used my camera phone to take a shot from the rape video
My whole weekend messed up. I saw a video that has messed with my head. A rape video. One hour of five boys taking turns on a girl. So heartbreaking to watch! One woman I showed it to today cried for three hours straight...it's one of the worst things I've ever seen in my life

A female student was gang raped by five boys in Abia State University. This incident happened Tuesday August 16th , 2011. These boys raped this girl, recorded it, passed it round their friends, who then passed it round ABSU campus. 

And do you know what her offense was, why this girl was raped? She supposedly insulted one of the boys...that was all.

In the rape video, which lasts for over an hour, the girl cried her eyes out and tried to fight them off in the first few minutes, after a while they subdued her; by slapping her, rough handling her, threatening to kill her and having rough sex with her. After a while she gave in and instead of fighting, she started pleading, and after her pleas fell on deaf ears, she begged them to kill her that she couldn’t take the pain anymore. These boys laughed at her, made fun of her and told her that if she didn't co-operate, they would keep her in the room and continue raping her for two days.

Please continue to read this horrid story ...

Must see video! Governor Adams Oshiomhole humiliates and orders arrest of Task Force boss

On Monday Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state ran to the scene of a demolition exercise in Benin city. The governor visited the site to see how some controversial demolition was executed by the state Task Force on Demolition of illegal Properties.

Apparently angered by some demolitions that he claimed was mischievously done by the team, Mr. Oshiomhole publicly scolded Major Lawrence Loye (rtd), the task force chair.

As shown in this video, Governor Oshiomhole not only scolded the task force chair but also ordered his arrest.

Is this gross abuse of power or was the Governor right to arrest the task force boss?

Nigerian designer, Lanre Da Silva tumbles on stage; featured on Daily Mail UK

So she fell on stage, and the international press carried it! I would be flattered if I were her...:-)

Here's how Dailymail reported it...

Did Naomi lend you those shoes? African designer ruins her big moment with a runway tumble at New York Fashion Week 
She says she is not afraid to stand out, but this was probably not the kind of attention she had hoped for. But you couldn't blame up-and-coming designer Lanre Da Silva-Ajayi if she was a little giddy after showcasing her latest collection at New York Fashion Week.
After the Arise Made In Africa showcase, the Nigerian fashionista took to the runway for a triumphant victory lap - and promptly stepped off the side.

"Yes, Toni Payne Visits Me, But We Have Not Settled" - 9ice

Contrary to news making the rounds that estranged couple, 9ice and Toni Payne had reconciled/on the verge of reconciling, 9ice says it's not true. When asked if he and estranged wife Toni Payne had reconciled since she's always seen at his home, 9ice replied.
Yes, she comes to the house, but she has not returned. What happens is she comes to the house, because in our Yoruba tradition, she has the right to visit the father of her child or children and if there's space or accommodation, she can stay briefly to see her children. She's been coming to the house, but that doesn't mean that she was coming to beg me, or me begging her. That chapter is closed for now.

NCC Advises Nigerians to Ignore Rumours of Phone-Induced Death

The 'killer' numbers are supposedly 09141 and 091441. So basically, when these numbers call you and you pick = you die! Some people claim that 10 people died in Wukari while receiving calls from these phone numbers. Really? Wow! And some people are buying this? OK!

Anyway, the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, has advised Nigerians to ignore such rumours. The commission said the claim is false and without any iota of truth, and that nothing like that could happen to somebody responding to a phone, no matter the number through which such calls are made.  It is only very gullible people that will believe such a rumour, they said

Basically, there are no killer numbers! So, relax people!

Let Nigerians Carry Arms, Pastor Oritsejafor Tells Jonathan

The National president of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, has called on President Goodluck Jonathan to allow Nigerians to carry arms to defend themselves against the insecurities in Nigeria. The killings in Jos, the kidnappings, the robberies, bomb threats etc...

Oritsejafor stated that if the government could no longer guarantee the safety of lives and property of Nigerians, then the National Assembly should immediately enact a law to make every Nigerian to carry arms for self protection.
Will carrying arms make things better or make it worse? Please share your thoughts..

"Why Glo dropped me as an ambassador" - Sunny Neji

"I was their ambassador, and while it lasted, we had a wonderful relationship and when it was time to renew the contract, both of us did not agree on the new terms. They said they were going to renew, but they were delaying and I was getting impatient because I needed to move on. But eventually when the contract came, I didn't like the terms, and I made it clear. And there's no way both of us can work because it is not by force." - Sunny Neji to a City People reporter

In other words, the contract fee was reduced, he didn't like it, they parted ways!

"2face and I are just partners to our daughter" - Annie Macaulay
