Governor Chime admits detaining his wife..but says its in her interest


This report from Sahara Reporters contradicts reports yesterday that Gov Chime denied detaining his wife. This report has more details about the press conference that took place in Enugu on Tuesday

Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State has confirmed reports that he is keeping his wife incarcerated, but that he is doing so in her interest.

“I wanted the best for her and that’s why I pleaded with the doctors to have her treated at home,” he stated during a press conference in Enugu.  “That’s also why I allowed her access to her telephone and laptop which unfortunately led to the stage where I’m now being falsely accused of imprisoning or detaining my own wife.”

Seven years after an unwanted pregnancy forced her to drop out of the University of Ilorin, Aishat Farooq emerges the best graduating student of the Bells University of Technology, Ota, Ogun State, reports Temitayo Famutimi

When Aishat Farooq gained admission into the University of Ilorin at 15, to study Zoology, little did she know that she was not going to be an alumnus of the institution. That was in 2003.

Despite the fact that she was a high flyer in her first two years in UNILORIN, the now 25-year-old indigene of Ilorin West-Local Government Area of Kwara State got distracted along the line. She played the campus love game and got a shocking result: she got pregnant. It was in 2006 and in her third year. She was pregnant for a fellow student whom she had been dating. She was disappointed in herself and thought the whole world was crashing on her.  Yet, she vowed not to terminate the pregnancy.

Photos: This is Lagos!


Left photo shows refuse dumped under a LAWMA signboard that says 'no dumping of waste' lol. The 2nd pic shows a soldier punishing a man for crossing the express road instead of using the pedestrian bridge. The pic is funny but what's happening here is so wrong. Why punish an adult for violating road traffic law? Why not arrest them, take them to court, fine them? Someone should caution these soldiers.

Taraba House Speaker, Haruna Tsokwa, slumps and dies


The Speaker of Taraba State House of Assembly, Haruna Tsokwa, slumped in the early hours of this morning November 4th in his house and was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead.

The late Speaker was one of the lawmakers in Taraba State who opposed Governor Danbaba Suntai's resumption of work in the state after his foreign medical treatment because of his frail state of health.

Tsokwa was attacked in September by unknown gunmen along the Akwanga-Keffi Road in Nasarawa State. The gunmen killed one of his aides but Tsokwa survived the attack.

Tsokwa is said to have been battling with some heart-related ailments before he suddenly slumped and died this morning. May his soul rest in peace. Amen.
