A 27-year-old woman, Mrs. Morufat Awinle, told an lgando Customary Court sitting in Lagos that after her husband, Musibau, stopped her from having more children, he insisted on having sex with her everyday.
The mother of three however informed the court that whenever she refused to have sex with him, he would beat the hell out of her. She claimed that her husband lacked care for her and their children, adding that this forced her to relocate to her parents home. "It was my mother that was responsible for the payment of the children’s school fees and other things”.
Morufat added that her husband sent their first born to his elder brother to avoid his responsibility of taking care of him, saying the brother could not take care of the child alongside his own children. But she pleaded
Anybody who knows Oklahoma District Court Judge Mike Norman probably yawned at the news that he’d sentenced a teen offender to attend church as part of his probation arrangement, and that the judge’s pastor was in the courtroom at the time.
Not only had he handed down such a sentence before, but he’d required one man to bring the church program back with him when he reported to court.
“The Lord works in many ways,” Norman, 69, told ABC News today. “I’ve done a little bit of this kind of thing before, but never on such a serious charge.”
Norman sentenced Tyler Alred, 17, Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in August for killing friend and passenger John Luke Dum in a car crash.
Dum died on impact in December after Alred crashed his Chevrolet pickup truck, ejecting Dum. Alred was

Court President Emmanuel Shokunle earlier told the couple to consider their children, who might suffer if they separated.

So, I implore you to go back home, and bring some members of your family for chamber discussion," Shokunle ruled.
He also assured Adetutu that Samuel will be a loving husband and responsible father to their children after they have settled the matter.
The marriage was saved after the chamber’s discussion and the couple has started living together as one
A ruthless employer took advantage of a 13-year-old girl's vulnerability and raped her several times in the absence of his wife.
Manicaland provincial spokesperson, Inspector Enoch Chishiri, confirmed the rape and said the suspect only identified as Chimupiri was still at large.
"In August, the juvenile was employed by Chimupiri's wife. She took the juvenile to her rural home near Charter where she stayed with her husband and two children. Chimupiri's wife returned to her workplace leaving the juvenile and her husband at home. Chimupiri took advantage of the minor and raped her several times. He would threaten her not to tell anyone," said Insp Chishiri.
A Southern California man was arrested at Oakland International Airport after security officers found him wearing an unusual watch they said could be used to make a timing device for a bomb, authorities said Friday.
Geoffrey McGann, 49, of Rancho Palos Verdes was taken into custody Thursday night after he tried to pass through airport security with an ornate watch that had switches, wires and fuses, according to Sgt. J.D. Nelson, a spokesman for the Alameda County Sheriff's Department.
A bomb squad arrived within five minutes and determined there were no explosive materials in the watch, Nelson said. The checkpoint was closed while officers secured the area.
McGann was taken to Santa Rita Jail in Dublin where he was charged with possessing materials to make an
Labour Congress, NLC, yesterday advised President Goodluck Jonathan against further increases in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, warning that such increases would collapse the government.
Reacting to President Jonathan’s claim that only the removal of fuel subsidy will allow for domestic refining of fuel, NLC in a statement by its President, Comrade Abdulwaheed Omar, noted that President Jonathan’s claim was not only highly disturbing, but dishonest to Nigerians.
The statement contended that the January protests would seem a child’s play compared to what might follow any attempt to deregulate the downstream sector of the oil industry, which in government language meant increases in pump price of fuel.
According to the statement, “With the wave of revelations regarding monumental corruption in the Petroleum

This photo was uploaded to the President's Flickr feed on Saturday morning, though.

It is being reported that at least 60 Nigerians resident in the United Kingdom have been deported because of various criminal offences. While some of the deportees had contravened immigration rules, others were deported for their involvement in crimes such as rape, stealing, smoking and selling of hard drugs. Some were also deported because they used fake visa or engaged in fake marriages.

When the management of Blueprint Business Technology, an ICT solution company, secured the service of Victor Sunday as an automobile engineer some years back, it didn’t occur to them that he was up to something more sinister than they could ever imagine. The 34-year-old man, in connivance with his wife, Eno, and a friend, Idom Essong, staged and kidnapped one of the company’s directors simply identified as Adebayo, squeezing a ransom of N36 million from his family.
The money which was shared between Sunday and his wife and others that took part in the operation, afforded him two automobiles, a jeep and a bus, while part of it was spent on a building project. While this was going on, Sunday didn’t quit working for the ICT company, he held on to his position, going about his duties as if nothing happened. But some of his colleagues at the office who noticed a sudden change,an expensive life style got suspicious, and alerted the management who brought in the police from the Federal
Occupants of a private school hostel located near the main gate of a tertiary institution in Imo State known for its relocation crisis woke up on Wednesday morning to behold the sight of a new born tucked inside a soak-away in the hostel.
Eye witnesses told LEADERSHIP WEEKEND that some occupants of the hostel heard the cry of the baby on that fateful day but could not decipher where the sound was coming from.
Their curiosity, according to the witness, spurred some of them to organise a search party. “Fortunately, as we further gathered, the cry of the baby was traced to the soak-away inside the hostel,” a student said.
ASSIUT, Egypt (AP) — A speeding train crashed into a bus carrying children to their kindergarten in southern Egypt on Saturday, killing at least 47, officials said. Distraught families searched for signs of their loved ones along the tracks and angry villagers berated officials in the aftermath of the latest disaster to hit the country's railway system.
The bus was carrying more than 50 children between 4 and 6 years old when it was hit near al-Mandara village in Manfaloot district in the province of Assiut, a security official said, adding that it appears that the railroad crossing was not closed as the train sped toward it.
Accidents traced to negligence regularly left scores dead during the rule of ousted President Hosni Mubarak, who was accused of valuing loyalty over competence in many appointments of senior officials. This is the worst such tragedy since the country's first freely elected president, Mohammed Morsi, took power this

GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli aircraft bombed Hamas government buildings in Gaza on Saturday, including the prime minister's office, after Israel's cabinet authorized the mobilization of up to 75,000 reservists, preparing for a possible ground invasion.
Israeli planes shattered the office building of Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh - where he had met on Friday with the Egyptian prime minister - and struck the Interior Ministry.
Loud explosions regularly rocked the densely populated Palestinian territory, sending plumes of smoke billowing into the sky. The occasional hiss of outgoing rocket fire showed Islamist militants were pursuing their defiance of the assault.
Despite the violence, Tunisia's foreign minister arrived in the coastal enclave on Saturday in a show of

The proposed peace talk between the Federal Government and Boko Haram has crumbled, even as the top command of Nigeria’s security apparatus has launched a fresh offensive to capture the sect’s leader, Imam Abubakar Shekau alive. The collapse of the planned dialogue is coming barely three weeks after the sect initiated a fresh move for ceasefire and peace talks.
The sect had on Thursday, November 1, announced, through one of its commanders, Abu Mohammed Ibn Abdulaziz, that it will stop its campaign of violence in the northern part of the country if the government will offer its members compensation and arrest a former governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff.
The development came barely five days after Saturday Sun, in an exclusive story, reported that the Federal Government had discovered the operational base of the sect in northern Mali, where Boko Haram leader,

Away from his sensual music videos and suggestive waist movements, contemporary Nigerian highlife artiste, Flavour Na’biana, cuts a different picture when you meet him in person.
Flavour says he is able to switch between the two different personalities in him. The singer, who started out playing drums and guitar in his local church, describes himself as a modest artiste.
“If you watch my videos, listen to my songs and then meet me one-on-one, you will be disappointed. When I am on stage, I am Flavour but off the stage, I am simply Chinedu Okoli (his real name). Away from the show business, my daily routine is simple. After doing my morning chores, I am either off to the studio, busy playing pool or play station or simply chilling with my colleagues. I am not a party animal.”
It is only a week to his 29th birthday party scheduled to, according to him, take place at a five star-hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, but Flavour is already in high spirits. Having transformed from a young lad
Facebook says Ebube doesn't exist, but she's got a fanPage to celebrate her victory.
Barely few days after the NCC placed a ban on promos by telecom networks, MTN Nigeria was quick to announce the winner of their Ultimate Wonder Promo which saw one miss Ebube Essien-Garricks emerging as the winner of the promo as reported by Punch.
To fulfill all righteousness and kill-off our suspicion of fraud, we did a random search of Ebube Essien-Garricks on Facebook; the world largest social media with over 1billion users. To our greatest shock, Ebube was no where to be found. At her age as MTN claims, 27 and a student of Uniport, we can argue till eternity that she must be on Facebook. Unfortunately, MTN Nigeria has become victims of their own fraud and

Sidhi Siddharth Sinune crawls behind the python and shrieks in delight as it weaves through her tiny legs.
While her parents are away working in the fields in a rural Indian village in Maharashtra, the baby girl pats the reptile and even playfully bites its tail.
The non-venomous snake could easily squeeze Sidhi to death or swallow her whole.
But her father, Siddharth Sinune, said he cannot afford to buy her toys – instead bringing home his prey from his job as a snake catcher.
Before putting them back in the forests, he keeps them at home for his only daughter’s amusement.
