The accused,  Arthur Obiora, is facing a three-count charge of threat to life, attempted rape and attempt to cause bodily harm at a Tinubu Magistrates’ Court.

'Funke Akindele didn't lose any pregnancy, she's not pregnant yet' - Close friend says

Every time I read online that she's pregnant, I ask her people and they deny it. And so when I read this week that she lost her pregnancy, I contacted her people once more and they laughed it off. A friend of the actress has finally opened up. Funke was never pregnant! Just a lot of food sometimes..hehe!
“Funke is not pregnant yet. She has chosen to be silent on the true state of her condition because in Yoruba culture, it is more of a taboo for a married woman to publicly denounce or confirm if she’s pregnant or not. This is a private affair and that’s why she was so amused and even surprised about the story claiming that she lost her pregnancy.”
Funke's close friend told a PM News reporter that when the initial story with a picture of a supposed baby bump hit the internet claiming Funke was in her first trimester, she silently claimed it. She's definitely looking forward to being a mother.

Dear Nicki Minaj, gyrating on TV&sucking penises is not talent'-TBoz

LMAO! Some people can find trouble sha! Below is what T-Boz of popular 90's girl group TLC said when asked if she thought Nicki Minaj was an appropriate judge for American Idol
Just because you’re on TV gyrating and boning and sucking penises, it’s not talent, honey. Maybe in the porn industry, but over here, we entertain. How the hell is she gon’ tell me what I should be doing when her azz can’t even sing.
Why is she there? And then…now they’ve got rappers that don’t even sing judging? So, this is totally based off of popularity I guess. I mean, to each their own. Get your money, honey. All I’m saying is, I will never watch your shows again."
Ouch!!! TBoz 1 - Nicki Minaj 0. Nicki Minaj doesn't take dissing from anyone, she always fires back! So wait for yours, T-Boz!! lol.

Frank Edoho secretly re-marries?

I put a question mark there because I don't know for sure if they are married but the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire host recently introduced Sandra Onyenaucheya as his wife. Not girlfriend or fiancee, as wife. He told guests at the unveiling of the new Heineken bottle which held at the Federal Palace hotel some days back, that he came to the event with his wife, Sandra, who was wearing a wedding band.

The couple went public last year after Frank Edoho ended his marriage with mother of his three children, TV gal, Katherine Edoho. Sandra, a mother of one, moved into Frank's VGC home sometime last year and there were reports that they planned to marry soon. Guess the deed has been done! Congrats to them!

He's so cute! He's 24, so remove ya eyes from dia! :-) Sydney's dad is Nigerian, his mum German. He was born and raised in Germany and has played in that country all his life...until now. He has agreed to play for the country of his father’s birth - Nigeria.

I don’t know any Boko Haram member - Buhari

Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), has said he does not know any member of Boko Haram sect. He said this in an interview with journalists at his party’s national secretariat in Abuja yesterday during the party’s Board of Trustees meeting.
“I do not know any member of the Boko Haram sect. I do not believe and I do not know of any religion that will go and kill people, burn schools. There was a stage where I mentioned that I agreed with one intellectual where he said there are three Boko Haram, one of Muhammed Yusuf, whom we know. A leader of the military then in Maiduguri did what we know in the military about internal security. They looked for Yusuf, they handed him over to the police; healthy young man and he died under a very dubious account in the police custody.

Ex beauty queen Chinenye Ochuba and husband lose Lagos home

Former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, Chinenye Ochuba and her husband of four years, Kunle Akinlade, have lost their home located at Somolu close, Alakuko, Ijaiye in Lagos.

The house was built six years ago by Mr Akinlade but unfortunately the land he built the house on wasn't his, at least that was the court verdict when the owners of the land took Mr Akinlade to court.

A Lagos high court which had been presiding over the matter for a while now, issued an order in October asking the Akinlades to vacate the house.

Mr Akinlade unfortunately bought the land from fraudsters, and when the real owners showed up, they refused any compensations, insisting on getting their land back. They went to court and won.

And since you can't uproot a building from a land, Chinenye and her husband lost their home. They have since moved out of the house.

Dear LIB readers: Is my husband well?
