26yr old Nigerian, Olutosin Oduwole, Sentenced to 5 Years in Prison in the US for Terrorist Threat

A 26yr old Nigerian, Olutosin Oduwole, was on Wednesday December 21, sentenced to five years in prison in Madison County, for writing what prosecutors say was a note demanding money and threatening a Virginia Tech-like killing spree.

A jury convicted the former Southern Illinois University student in October of attempting to make a terrorist threat and unauthorized possession or storage of a weapon.

The judge sided with jurors in dismissing Oduwole's claim that he was an aspiring rapper, and that the threatening words were innocent lyrical musings. He was sentenced to five years on the threat charge and a year on the weapons charge to be served concurrently.
The threat note was found in Tosin's abandoned car by cops in July 2007, just a few months after the Virginia Tech massacre. The writing demanded payment to a PayPal account, threatening "if this account doesn't reach $50,000 in the next 7 days then a murderous rampage similar to the VT shooting will occur at another highly populated university. THIS IS NOT A JOKE!

The aspiring rapper insisted in court that he "did not mean to incite fear. That was never my intention. That is not my character." But he failed to convince the court the writing was innocent lyrics and other musings. Also, unfortunately for him, when they searched his on-campus dorm when he was arrested, cops found a loaded gun.

Is it a good idea to set up a business with your boyfriend?

I can set up a business with my husband, the father of my children, if anything goes wrong between us, the business still belongs to the the children. But a boyfriend? A boyfriend? No sir, not going to happen!

In March 2009, Bunmi Olaye set up a luxury fashion and art label with the love of her life, Francis Udom. They called it Bunmi Koko. For two and a half years the label won several awards, featured in several fashion shows around the world, had their clothes worn by important dignitaries, including Michelle Obama. They seemed unstoppable.

But on December 6th 2011, the Bunmi Koko label announced that co-founder, Bunmi Olaye was stepping down from the label, which already has operational business subsidiaries in the UK, SA and South America.

I hear the hardworking fashionista is planning to start her own independent label...thing is, after all the work she put in for almost three years to make Bunmi Koko a household name, she now has to start all over again.

So I ask; is it a good idea, as a woman, to set up a business with a boyfriend?

Quote of the day

"If Goodluck Jonathan does not remove oil subsidy, his government will crash”. Gov Adams Oshiomhole said at today's Town Hall Meeting.

Heard his full speech on the debate today on NTA and I was highly disappointed. From the mouth of a former NLC president? The man who fought furiously for the masses in the years he was Nigeria Labour Congress president. Weeks of strike and protests, compelling government to reduce the price of fuel. Now he's in Government and he's singing a different tune. What a damn shame!

Dear FG, instead of the planned toll gates next year, why not repair the bad roads?

Rural Road Access and Mobility Project sometime back said that 85% of Nigerians roads are in bad condition. Hundreds of people are dying everyday on these horrible roads. And instead of our government to concentrate on building good roads and repairing the bad ones, they are more interested in introducing toll gates on major roads, which they say will commence next year. What a government!

Continue to see a scene of a fatal car accident which occured along the Abuja-Lokoja Expressway this week. Gruesome photos, dead bodies and survivors. Please do not look if you don't have the stomach for such. I'm putting this here so some of you know what people are facing in this country on a daily basis. Some avoidable deaths, if only the government will care a little. Continue to see the photos...

Video: Man Dies After Eating Cocaine From His Brother's Butt!

Wayne Joshua Mitchell (left), 20, died when he decided to swallow cocaine to save his older brother, 23yr old Deangelo (right), from going to jail.

Deangelo pressured Wayne into swallowing the cocaine hidden in his behind while they were in the back of a police car and cops were searching their vehicle.
Deangelo told his brother:
"You gonna eat it, you gonna chew it... You ain't got no strike... I can get you out... I can't afford another strike. You the only one that don't have no strikes... You my lil' brother... I'm gonna get life... You gonna unwrap it? Want me to hand you it?"

Oby Edozieh responds to husband snatching allegations.

She wrote this on her Facebook page a few hours ago....
Why is it that every time an actress is about to wed, all kinds of stories start coming out from people who just don’t want them to be happy. And unfortunately,our beloved people that we entertain are quick to buy into these unfounded stories from d aggrieved ex-wives &mistresses. This is one of the reasons why I chose to keep my court wedding secret.I only want to state this once and for all, that my husband is married to only me in this whole world.When my husband arrived into Nigeria, saw an email sent to him by this white woman. In d email she was saying how much she misses him, & now realizing d true meaning of d popular saying, that,ONE DOES NOT KNOW THE VALUE OF WHAT THEY HAVE UNTIL THEY LOSE IT.Emails and text messages don’t lie.She also made other related comments.A day after my wedding,I got a call from her, saying she is Alex’s Ex-wife. I asked her how she got my two cell phone numbers. She raised her voice and was rude.
I guess once there is a former wife, there will always be drama. Continue reading...
