Senate announces the names of those benefiting from oil subsidies

Yesterday Dec 2nd, the Nigerian Senate announced the names of those Nigerians who are benefitting from our oil commonwealth...names of companies that shared N1.4 trillion petroleum subsidy funds.

The Senate's joint committee probing the management of petroleum subsidy funds disclosed at an investigative hearing that over 100 companies including construction companies participated in the sharing of N1.426 trillion between January and August 2011, a figure that contradicts that of the Petroleum Product Pricing Regulatory Agency, which it put at N1.348 trillion.

The full list, and their individual haul, as read out in the Senate yesterday, when you continue...

Senate Rejects State Burial for Ojukwu

Yesterday, the Nigerian senate asked the Federal Government to immortalize the late Biafran leader who died last week in London hospital, but rejected the clamour (by some prominent Igbo leaders, and some South East Governors) for Ojukwu to be given a state burial.

The senate argued that giving Ojukwu a state burial would amount to a bad precedent. State burials are reserved for heads of state only, right?

Do you think Ojukwu deserves a state burial?

Dear LIB readers: My 'Boyfriend' is married with kids and I never knew

A letter from a LIB reader.
Dear LIB readers, I have been duped by a man I loved. Please, I want to share my story so that every woman will know and learn.
Its 3am and I can barely sleep. My honour has been tampered with. But I know I am going to pull through this pain but I pray I would not fall into the same mistake again.
How can a man deny his kids that he sired from his own loins? Do such men exist? Yes they do. And I met one of such.

Kris Humphries is gay? Lol. Nice try Kim Kardashian!

Here's another story the Kardashian clan probably planted in Star magazine to further make Kris look bad...
Kim confided to Khloe pretty early on that [she and Kris] hadn’t had sex for weeks after they returned home from their Italian honeymoon. Kim was really concerned.”
One night she came back to their hotel room in a trench coat … She lit candles, put on some music and started doing a sexy striptease. But Kris barely looked up from the TV! He was like, ‘Later babe. I’m watching SportsCenter now.’”

Another Nigerian Police Killing...

A young man was allegedly shot dead by police men on Tuesday November 29th in Port Harcourt, after the taxi he was traveling in refused to stop when stopped by some policemen at a road block.

The incident happened around 3pm at Rumunkara Lane along Rumuola road, opposite First Bank, Port Harcourt. According to eye witnesses, the police men chased after the cab after it refused to stop and then opened fire. The young man who was a passenger in the cab, was hit and killed instantly.

He needs a job!

Don't know whether to lol at this or say 'how sad'? The lack of employment in this country is no longer funny. I gave someone 10k the other day, and he said, 'I haven't had money like this in a while'. The sad part is that we went to school together. 

I think the way forward is entrepreneurship. Find something you are good at, and employ yourself. Start small and grow. Waiting on the government, not the way!

Outrageous! Afghan Woman To Be Freed From Jail After Agreeing To Marry Her Rapist

Gulnaz in prison with her young son
A 19yr old Afghan woman, Gulnaz, was sentenced to 12 years in prison for adultery after relatives discovered the unmarried lady was pregnant. (It's a crime in Afghanistan to have sex outside of marriage). Gulnaz told authorities that her cousin's husband had raped, and made her pregnant and that she had tried to fight him off on the night he attacked her. The alleged rapist, who was also arrested and locked up for adultery, denied it was rape.

After Gulnaz incarceration, the EU and other world human rights organizations got involved and called on the Afghan president to release the rape victim. Yesterday Thursday December 1, Afghan President Hamid Karzai pardoned Gulnaz, on the condition that she will marry her attacker.

Stephen Ojerinola was an 18yr old boy who lived with his mother, stepfather and siblings in Camberwell, South East London. He went missing April this year and for seven months, his family frantically searched for him.

'Why Nigeria's anti-gay bill sickens me' - By Chude Jideonwo

You all know who Chude Jideonwo is. In this article for CNN, he writes about the recently-passed bill in the Nigerian senate outlawing same sex marriage. Read below...
It is important to first understand that no gay Nigerian, as far as anyone knows, is seeking marriage -- in Nigeria.
You can comb the breadth of our decidedly homophobic media ("Homosexuals are in trouble!" crowed The Sun Newspapers, no doubt mirroring the excitement of its upright editorial board), and there is neither anecdotal nor empirical evidence of a clamor, even a quiet one, for gays to be married in churches, mosques or courts.

Vybz Kartel prison break story not true

I'm sure most of heard that the dancehall star, who was jailed last month for bleaching murder and other offenses, escaped from a prison in his native Jamaica this morning after holding a prison officer at gun point. Allegedly, Kartel started a riot in which one prison officer was killed and others injured and fifteen inmates escaped in a truck. Well, none of that is true. It was a rumour probably started by his people to keep the music star in the news. Continue reading...

Naval officer kills lover, self

Unfortunately this murder is being kept under wraps because it involves naval officers. The Nigerian navy two weekends back lost two of their Naval officers. A female naval rating called Itoha and her naval officer live-in-lover, Henry.

According to the neighbours of the couple, who until their deaths lived at navy town, Ojo Barracks, Lagos, the naval officer returned from a joint task force mission in in Jos and accused his lover of cheating on him with another man while he was away. Neighbours said the couple, who had been planning to marry, argued and fought frequently. This particular night was to be their last, as the Henry in a fit of anger stabbed Itoha several times with a dagger and then turned the dagger on himself.

US entertainers refuse to come to Nigeria

You see what Boko Haram and all the bombings and killings in the Northern parts of Nigeria in recent times have caused? Oyibo entertainers are refusing to come to this country for any show. They are going to other African countries but have vehemently refused to come here, especially after they were warned by their country to stay away from Nigeria...in the meantime. A few major shows in Nigeria have had to be cancelled because of this. R.Kelly, Ludacris, Keri Hilson were invited to perform at three different shows this December and they all turned it down. It's not like it's major issue but it's just not a good image for us...

Hopefully the killings and bombings will stop, and there will be peace again in our land...

Please continue to see the humiliating photo...

Woman reveals horrific damage to her face after it was injected with cement and tyre sealant

An alleged victim of 'fake doctor' Oneal Ron Morris has come forward to show the horrific state of her face after it was injected with a toxic mixture of cement and tyre sealant.

Rajee Narinesingh, 48, from Miami, Florida, says her face was ruined by Morris, who had just been released from custody after she was accused of administering the potentially lethal shots to another victim.

Ms Narinesingh, who, like Morris, 30, was born a man, but lives as a woman, said she suffered acutely lumpy cheeks, misshapen chin and ballooning upper lip after the back room beauty treatment.
