Life after sexual abuse - A LIB reader shares her story

A LIB reader shares how she struggled to deal with and get over sexual abuse which she suffered as a child from family and friends. Please read below...
I am living proof that anyone can turn things around. From a nadir of emotions in which I struggled with abuse and resentment, I have willed myself to focus on the strength I possess and the fact that I alone can determine how my life turns out.
My father was a business man, and my mother a full house wife. Her whole life was dedicated to taking care of us and protecting us and she was in fact overprotective of us because we were all girls. But I have now realized over the years that you cannot always be there for a child, and no one has control over an abuse.

Couple having sex in sea become stuck together and have to be separated in hospital

Hard to believe but that is what Italian media reported this week...lol. An unidentified Italian couple had to be rushed to the hospital this week after their genitals got stuck together while having sex in the sea at Porto San Giorgio in the Marche region of Italy

According to Italian newspaper Il Mattino, the man and woman called for help about 30minutes after they went into the sea. A woman walking along the deserted beach heard their call for help and handed them a towel. Other locals went to rescue the embarrassed couple and called an ambulance.

Are you Nigerians for or against the recent Boko Haram ceasefire?

Let's discuss folks. I've been reading a lot of comments and articles on this matter and it looks like opinions are divided. The Nigerian military yesterday announced a ceasefire with Boko Haram after years of terrorism from the group, which has resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent Nigerians. The ceasefire agreement includes the release of over 200 Chibok girls - which to me is a very welcome development. There are reports that some of these girls will be released to the man who brokered the peace deal, Chadian president, Idriss Deby, sometime next week, to show they (Boko Haram) are serious about the ceasefire agreement with the Nigerian government. 

But there are those who still think that the government shouldn't have negotiated with these terrorists. After the cut, you will find an article from Dr Perry Brimah of Ends.ng, about why Nigerians should reject these ceasefire deal. As for me, I support peace anytime. Too many innocent people have died unnecessary. But read and tell us if you agree with him...

Mass failure at Nigerian Law School as over 3,000 students fail bar exam

Apparently there was mass failure at the Nigerian Law School this year. The Nigerian Law School recently released the 2013/2014 August result, and it was a Tsunami. Out of the 5,000 candidates who registered, only about 2,000 passed. Meaning that about 3,000 students failed the bar exam, the highest failure the Nigerian Law School has witnessed since its 50 years of existence.

Many of the students are angry and frustrated. They say they don't believe the mass failure is the fault of the students and are now asking for a review of their results. An affected student who reached out to LIB said; Continue...
