Qatar Airline Makes Emergency Landing in Lagos

Qatar Airline flight 592 from Doha to Lagos made an emergency landing a few minutes ago at the Murtala Muhammed International airport, Lagos. The pilots discovered midair that one tyre had low pressure, making landing difficult. They radioed our airport for emergency precaution and a vehicle to tow the plane from the runway to the gate.

The best part was, more than 95% of the passengers didn't even know anything was wrong until the plane landed and they saw fire service and National  Emergency Management Agency all around. One of the passengers tweeted that it was a smooth landing so was surprised that they even had issues.

The plane has been slowly towed to it's landing spot at the airport. We thank God

Arik Air overbooks flight; 16 people standing inside plane. Haha

This is going on right now at Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos. I'm getting info from passengers on the plane. Apparently Arik Air overbooked their Lagos-Benin flight by 16 people..and all sixteen passengers have refused to come down. Passengers have been at the airport since 6:30. Flight was initially supposed to take off at 7:30, then delayed to 11am. It was eventually boarded at almost 12 with 16 people more than available seats. The Arik Air involved is the one you see in this photo - the John Paul 2. No passenger is leaving and the plane is refusing to fly.

Lol. Naija! So Arik doesn't know when to stop selling tickets? Or they were hoping some passengers will not show up?

Nigerians are UK's 4th biggest foreign spenders

Article written by Susannah Butter for Standard UK

Every year, Simi Osomo (pictured above) makes six trips to London from Nigeria. The 25-year-old spends about two weeks here and every day she goes shopping. Today she’s at the boutique shop Matches Townhouse in Marylebone with a personal shopper. “When it comes to shopping and Nigerians, I can tell you it’s just what we have to do,” she tells me while admiring the patterned dresses.
For Nigerians, London is a shopping mecca. Visitors from the West African country are the UK’s fourth biggest foreign spenders, parting with an average of £500 in each luxury shop they visit — four times what UK shoppers typically spend. When I ask Osomo how much a two-week shopping trip in London costs she makes a bashful face. “Ooh, should I really be saying this? It depends, but most times about £5,000.”

Saudi Arabia Deports 683 Female Pilgrims

The government of Saudi Arabia yesterday Thursday September 27th deported another batch of 512 pilgrims to Nigeria, a day after deporting 171 women. 

The Saudi government detained and eventually deported these women who went to the country for the 2012 Hajj, because they were not accompanied by approved male guardians which they say is against laid down rules of their kingdom. Over one thousand Nigerian female pilgrims were detained at the Abdul-Aziz International Airport and King Fahd Airport in Jeddah and Medina before they started gradually deporting them into Nigeria via Kano and Sokoto airports

Nigerian government yesterday issued a 24-hour ultimatum to the Saudi authority to resolve the issue...or... Well, the ultimatum expired today and hundreds of pilgrims are still detained.

Hong Kong businessman offers $65m to any man who can turn his gay daughter straight

Oya, Naija men start dusting your passport...Hong Kong beckons..:-). One of Hong Kong's richest men, 76year old Cecil Chao Sze-tsung, is offering $65 million to any man who can turn his gay daughter straight, and walk her down the aisle. Cecil Chao made the offer after his daughter Gigi, 33, married her girlfriend of seven years, Seab Eav in France. 

The old man has refused to accept that his daughter is married as same-sex marriages are not recognised in Hong Kong...and now he's offering not just money but also to start his potential son-in-law up in his own business  
'I don’t mind whether he is rich or poor – the important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted,’ he told the South China Morning of the ideal husband for his daughter.

Chris Brown & Nicole were not kissing; they were talking' - says rep

Nicole Scherzinger's rep tells E!
There is absolutely no truth to the ridiculous story regarding Nicole and Chris Brown,"  "The photos that have surfaced are old friends who were trying to talk at a very loud club. I guarantee there will be no photos of them kissing. This is a non-story."
A rep for Chris Brown gave a similar denial on the PDA reports.
"No story here," Brown's camp says. "They were not kissing. They are friends, have been for years and they were talking at a club with loud music playing."
They were talking in these photos? Well, you could have fooled me.

Argument Against Oral Sex

Early Thursday morning, see the email I got. Oshisko! *hiss* :-)
Dear Linda, I read a post where you asked why some people do not engage in oral sex. Here's my answer to you. When a women sucks up, tastes or swallows semen during oral sex, she is drinking the very essence of life.  She is engaging in cannibalism and the man is engaging in facilitation of cannibalism.  I know your next question is what if you have been impaired by way of female circumcision, how do you enjoy a sex life?  Your husband can fondle you and you will enjoy intimacy that way.  So I hope that you do not engage in oral sex and if you ever do you repent and turn a new leaf.  Similarly a man should not taste the private area of a woman for the same reasons.  Hope my answer satisfies you innermost queries. It is simply engaging in drinking of life/human blood both ways. Even when the private areas of a woman may look clean there are traces of blood for various reasons.
Hopefully, some men do not agree with this. Keep doing what you do...we women appreciate it *wink*
