Man kills his wife, then hangs himself at their home in Ondo state

A 47 year-old father of five, Lateef Jimoh, yesterday Friday 7th stabbed his wife Olufunmilayo Amudat to death at their Omoniyi Estate home in Akure, Ondo state. The former banker turned taxi driver committed suicide by hanging himself shortly after the killing.
Neighbours disclosed that a court had dissolved the couple's 16-year-old marriage just two weeks ago and that Funmilayo who was a trader came to pack her belongings when she was murdered by her husband who had begged her not to leave him but she refused.
One of the children of the deceased discovered the gruesome scene after returning from school and raised an alarm. Both bodies were taken to the Ijapo police station after some men from the Deji of Akure's palace brought down the dangling body and the rope, having conducted some appeasement rites. Five children now orphans. Sad!

Fire guts boys hostel at Madonna University Okija campus, students injured

Last night, a room at Saint Peters boys hostel in the Okija campus of Madonna University was gutted by fire, trapping three students. One of the students, (pictured above) was badly burnt when help didn't come on time. Students in the hostel say they couldn't help on time because there was little water, no fire extinguisher, no sand and there was only one exit from the building. Students were seen trying to jump from the 4th and 5th floor of the hostel when fire engulfed the building. Thankfully no death was recorded though one student had second degree burns and is in hospital.

Students say the fire was caused by faulty electrical connections in the hostel and are blaming the school authority.

Update: Just heard one of the students has died. See photos after the cut...

Container truck crushes man to death in Lagos

According to a report by Punch, a heavy loaded 40-foot container fell on a government meat van yesterday June 6th, crushing a passerby and wounding several others. The sad event took place at Ikeja Along Bus Stop on Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway in Lagos.

Eyewitnesses said the truck had swerved off the road to avoid colliding with some policemen, who were chasing a motorcycle rider, before the incident occurred around 9am.

The victim, identified as Samuel Ogunnaike, was an employee of a popular phone dealer in Computer Village, Ikeja, and was on his way to the office when he met his death. Any hope that he could survive the accident was dashed after he was trapped for about four hours before his body was retrieved from the wreckage. (Punch)

‘Why I don't discuss the paternity of my daughter - Omawumi

Omawumi opened up to Thisday entertainment contributor, Seun Apara, on the reasons why she does not like discussing the paternity of her daughter. She said:
I never hid my child's paternity but I felt that since I'm not married, I don't need to come out and say this is the father of my child. It is always ideal for someone who wants to marry you to be the one to identify himself. Another thing is that he might not want to identify himself because he is not an artiste. He might not want that part of my life. He might just love me and my child. So I like to respect people's privacy. I also strongly feel that it is my job as a musician to entertain you and if you feel like my personal life is your business, it doesn't mean I feel the same way.
Initially when I got pregnant, I didn't feel the need to come out and start telling people that this is the father of my child. I didn't feel I owed it to anyone.
She says a lot more. Read after the jump...

Dear LIB readers: How can I stop my brother from marrying this woman

From a female LIB reader.
My fellow readers of this great blog please I need your help urgently. My younger brother wants to marry a woman who has two kids by two different men. She's only 29 and already has a 9 year old and a four year old, both from different men she dated in the past. My brother is only 31 and I and other members of our family feel there are more decent women out there he can marry and not a young woman with two kids. We have tried to talk him out of it but he doesn't want it to hear it. It's not even like she's beautiful, well educated or rich so I don't understand his obsession with this woman. How is he going to take care of two kids that are not his? What do we do? How do we get him to get away from this woman? There are some family members who believe he's under a spell because his obsession with her and determination to marry her is not normal.

Clarifying Nigeria's debt position - Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala

A statement from the Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala
There has recently been a lot of misinformation and misconception in our public debate on debt. My goal in this article is to shed some light on the public debt, to clarify the real state of Nigeria’s debt position, and hopefully, provide a knowledge platform for constructive debate.
Let me say at the outset that no one in government is supportive of a Nigeria that returns to a high state of indebtedness. On a personal note, having gone through tremendous stress during the quest for Paris Club debt relief, I am committed to a Nigerian economy that is fiscally prudent, balances its books and remains at a low state of indebtedness.
