Port Harcourt Youths take to daylight robbery as a protest against wealthy citizens

The spate of daylight robbery going on in Port Harcourt right now has left a lot of people wondering what's going on in the garden city.

Niger Delta youths, who were not part of the Federal and state govt amnesty programmes, have now taken to the streets, robbing in broad day light, forming armed robbery gangs and terrorizing rich citizens in the city. Some of the gangs wear military camouflage uniforms and carry sophisticated weapons when operating and are said to be ruthless. So many lives have been lost in their operation...

Hopefully the government will get these youths off the streets by including them in their amnesty programmes.

Governor Sullivan Chime denies impregnating sister in law

Chime and wife, Clara

A few weeks ago, the social media was agog with allegations of the Governor of Enugu State, Sullivan Chime, impregnating his wife's younger sister, Ebere Igwe, a young lady in her mid-20's. The relationship between the governor and his in law allegedly began some months after he married his second wife, Clara Chime in 2008, having divorced his first wife.

According to the rumours, a few months ago, Ebere allegedly approached her sister and told her she was carrying Gov Chime's child, which almost killed the first lady. Ebere has supposedly given birth to a baby for the governor. But the governor is denying everything. Here's what he had to say about the allegations.
I can tell you that my sister in law is one of the most decent human beings I have ever seen. Why they chose to rubbish her, I don't know. The truth is, no such happened. Nobody had any baby boy for me. As a matter of fact, the young girl is getting married this December to an Onitsha man and was actually staying with this man when they alleged she was in my house in the village nursing a baby for me. So, the story is all nonsense.

How I met my wife - Obiwon

Obiwon Obiora:
I met her at her sister's wedding. I came because of the groom actually. He was a client of mine when I was working in the bank. This was July 14th 2007. I reluctantly attended the guy's wedding and when I came, it was almost done. I wanted to see the groom, say hi and go. The first person I saw was Nkechi. I asked her the whereabouts of the groom and she took me to him. Afterwards, she and I exchanged pleasantries and exchanged phone numbers. Now, we are married.
Obiwon's wife Nkechi Ezeife just graduated from Nnamdi Azikiwe University where she read Banking and Finance.

I think I need to start going to weddings o. Since women are meeting husbands there...:-).  But usually I avoid weddings. I feel like it's one of the most boring gatherings ever! The last wedding I went to, I nearly pulled the weave from my head...:-)

Nigeria Police Kill & Publicly Display Kidnap Suspects Bodies in Eket

Police in Akwa Ibom state killed seven alleged kidnappers and displayed their dead bodies at their premises for residents interested to look at...
From SaharaReporters:
Investigations by SaharaReporters indicate that the suspected kidnappers were executed by the police in cold blood, raising concerns about the legal powers of the police to act as investigators, prosecutors, judges and implementers of judgments.
Two police sources in Eket confirmed the incident, and said that the men died in a routine operation against kidnappers.
But a police informant told our correspondent that, contrary to the official police version, the suspects were assembled from different locations and executed in Eket Police Division.
“It is shocking and cruel that the police would execute people without properly handing them over for prosecution, and then create a mindless exhibition of their bodies,” said a human rights lawyer in Akwa Ibom. He added that, unless citizens recognized the dangers of such jungle justice, the police could easily kill innocent people by tagging them kidnappers.
Warning...very graphic...if you have the stomach, then continue to see the photos..

India's real life 'Slumdog Millionaire' wins $1million prize

Sushil Kumar, left, with Bollywood movie legend and host of the show Amitabh Bachchan, shows off his $1 million check in Mumbai, India.
27-year-old newlywed, Sushil Kumar, a government clerk from a one of the poorest region of eastern India, has become the first person ever to win $1 million on the popular Indian version of "Who wants to be a Millionaire."

Before winning the ultimate prize, Kumar worked as a computer operator for the government and tutored on the side to supplement his income, which was $120 a month.

In spite of his humble surroundings, he got all of the quiz show's questions right, a feat his brother attributes to Kumar's penchant for BBC programs. The brother also said the family had been too poor to afford a television set and had watched the quiz show at a neighbour’s home. Now their lives have changed forever.

Topic of the day: Should Prostitution be Legalised in Nigeria?

Deputy Senate president, Ike Ekeweremadu, wants it legalized. According to him:
We need to regulate prostitution in this country so that if anyone wants to indulge in prostitution, the person should be registered and issued with a license. If we say we want to stop it, it would be difficult. It is done in other countries; let us regulate it by issuing license.
