Bianca's tribute to late husband, Odumegwu Ojukwu

How do I sum up 23 years in one page? I don't know. How do I describe you? I cannot. Not in any depth. Not for anybody else - you were my husband, my brother, my friend, my child. I was your queen, and it was an honour to have served you.

You were the lion of my history books, the leader of my nation when we faced extinction, the larger-than-life history come to,  my life - living, breathing legend. But unlike the history books, you defied all preconceptions. You made me cry from laughter with your jokes, many irreverent. You awed me with your wisdom. You melted my heart with your kindness. Your impeccable manners made Prince Charming a living reality. Your fearlessness made you the man I dreamt of all my life and your total lack of seeking public approval before speaking your mind separated you from mere mortals.

More when you continue...

Court orders NDLEA to pay compensation to Baba Suwe

An Ikeja High Court today ordered the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) to pay the judgement sum of N25 million awarded actor, Baba Suwe, within the next 21 days

But NDLEA lawyer said the agency couldn't afford to give any individual that sum because they need money to perform other important statutory functions...all they can offer is their apology.

And beat goes on!

EFCC Press Release: Gbenga Daniel Not Discharged and Acquitted; EFCC to Re-file Charges

Contrary to media reports that Otunba Gbenga Daniel has been discharged and acquitted by the ruling of an Abeokuta High Court today, the EFCC wishes to clarify that the ruling of Justice Olanrewaju Mabekoje was not a discharge and acquittal of the former Ogun State Governor.

The trial judge only released Mr. Daniel on the sole technical ground that the Commission failed to seek the consent of court before filing the amended charges against the former governor.

Gbenga Daniel discharged and acquitted of corruption charges

A state high court in Abeokuta this morning discharged and acquitted the embattled ex-governor of Ogun state, Gbenga Daniel of all corruption charges, saying the EFCC had not provided enough evidence of corruption against him.

Gbenga Daniel was in 2011 accused of money laundering, fraud and corruption while serving as the governor of Ogun state. SMH for our Nigerian courts!

Hollywood actors Mickey Rourke & Kim Basinger to star in Jeta Amata's new movie - Black November

Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger and Kim Basinger who starred in “9 1/2 Weeks,” will reunite in the political film “Black November” from our very own Nigerian director Jeta Amata. Rourke plays a CEO of an oil company that will do anything to make money and is responsible for spills, pipeline explosions and burning villages in Nigeria. The message is Western exploitation of Niger Delta, the local corruption that greases it and violent local resistance. “Black November” is due out later this year.

What Amnesty International said about the movie:
 Amnesty International has extensively reported how spills of toxic crude oil from the operations of big oil companies, like Shell, have harmed people’s health and devastated their livelihoods in the Niger Delta. "BLACK NOVEMBER" brings vividly to life the terrible impact of oil company pollution and underscores the need to hold accountable the oil companies responsible.

Ikechukwu's fiancee Sarah Ofili denies being pregnant

I never wrote she was pregnant because I didn't know for sure if she was...but quite a number of other blogs said she was and some are even claiming they've confirmed it...lol.

From Sarah's reply to the tweet from Ariyatoday, she's clearly denying being pregnant. Clearblue is a pregnancy test (I Googled it) and if she's still waiting on it...errrm...there goes your answer.
*Detective Linda* lol

George Clooney addresses gay rumours - for the very first time

Despite dating some of the finest women in the world, there are those who think the actor is gay. In an interview with gay and lesbian news magazine, The Advocate, Goerge Clooney addressed the rumour for the very first time. He said:
I think it’s funny, but the last thing you’ll ever see me do is jump up and down, saying, "These are lies!" That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community,' he told the publication.
I’m not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing. My private life is private, and I’m very happy in it. Who does it hurt if someone thinks I’m gay? I’ll be long dead and there will still be people who say I was gay. I don’t give a s***.'
Well said!

Senate orders FRSC to suspend issuance of new driver’s licences & number plates

The Nigerian Senate and House of Representatives yesterday directed the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) to immediately suspend the implementation of the new driver's licence and vehicle number plates on the grounds that the innovation is creating further hardship for Nigerians.

God bless you NASS. What the heck do we need new vehicle number plates and driver's license for when the ones we got a few months back doesn't expire till 2014? Why the re-introduction of new plates that costs so much to get? Why can't they wait till 2014 when the one we are using now expires? This country sha!

So Ibori pleaded guilty to save Nigerians the embarrassment? *Yimz*

Lol, that's what Mr. James Ibori's media assistant, Tony Eluemumor, is claiming. According to him:
Ibori pleaded guilty to the 10 count charge of stealing, money laundering and corruption because as an elder statesman and patriotic Nigerian, it was in the best interest of the country that its name gets saved the embarassment of a long court process that’d have had the country’s name bandied for the wrong reasons in a foreign court.
What a dumb excuse...next pls!!!
