Dozens of bodies found floating on Anambra River (Viewers Discretion Advised)

Dozens of Unidentified bodies numbering over 40 were on Saturday found floating on Ezzu River at Amansea, a town on the border between Anambra and Enugu states on Saturday.
The situation generated panic across the state as people wondered where the bodies could have come from.
The Anambra State Assistant Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Emeka Chukwuemeka, confirmed the story but said investigations into the matter had commenced.

Shocking Earnings Of Nollywood Stars

Quite a number of perks come with being a movie star in this part of the world. They include designer clothes, luxury cars and posh apartments.

Apart from their penchant for such status symbols, today’s Nollywood actors and actresses are also seen as role models, especially to the young and impressionable who dream of becoming stars some day.
But, judging by the results of a recent investigation conducted by Saturday Beats, it appears all that glitters is not gold, after all.
Contrary to popular opinion, the life of the average Yoruba movie star is that of constant ‘suffering and smiling’.
In spite of the fabulous profiles and immense goodwill enjoyed by some of these celebrated screen gods and goddesses, the contents of their bank accounts are really nothing to be cheerful about.
Even the ‘alarming’ increase in the volume of home video films produced in Yoruba language ought to be sufficient to improve the bank balances of such celebrities. To make matters worse, many of them suffer from a financial disease known as ‘Withdrawal Symptom.’ In fact, it is no longer news that a good number are

Obasanjo Almost Lost His Joystick During Civil War

Obasanjo appealed to Nigerians to move beyond the civil war. Nigeria’s former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has said that he has no regrets over the various actions he took during the Nigerian civil war (1967-1970).
Mr. Obasanjo, a retired Army General, was one of the soldiers that led Nigeria’s military onslaught against Biafran soldiers leading to the eventual surrender of the Biafrans. Controversies have trailed the war with some intellectuals like foremost writer, Chinua Achebe, accusing the Nigerian troop and government of genocide against the Igbos.
Mr. Obasanjo, who spoke on Friday, at a reception held in his honour by the Peoples Democratic Party,however, said all the decisions he took then were for the growth of the country and he has no regrets taking them.

Why Tuface Begged Me To Marry Him -Annie Macaulay

The wife of the iconic African pop star, Annie Macaulay Idibia has opened up on why Tuface Idibia begged her to marry him. 
In a revealing interview she granted Jara, a TV programme on Africa Magic channel on DSTV, the singer’s wife reconstructed the scenario of how Tuface proposed to her and why he chose her among the other women in his life.

In her words:
“He called me up one morning that I should meet him in Lagos so that we can hang out. He said his friends are around and they want to take us out. So, I agreed to see him. I remember it was a particular friend of ours that was around that day, although I would not like to mention his name.

"You Have No Right To Call Me Ugly"- Actor Segun Arize

Nollywood actor and former president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Segun Arinze, and his family, were featured on the front cover of a style magazine recently and most blogs published it.
Some readers made unsavoury comments about the actor’s wife as well as his looks which for a long time, have remained the butt of rude jokes – particularly his seeming large eyeballs.

But this time, the ‘black arrow’ star will not roll over and let the subliminals hurled at himself and his wife pass, without a response.

The response below is a text message from the star actor  to popular blogger, Linda Ikeji, which she published on her blog.

"My first introduction to sex was rape' - Foluke Daramola reveals

Actress Foluke Daramola told Punch:

My first introduction to sex was rape. It was with one of our tenants. I got so close to him and saw him as an elder brother. He looked at me as someone that had been exposed because I was busty and he thought I had had a sexual experience before. So he had his way with me. Then it was not something you tell the whole world. Then they tried to make trouble with him but subsequently people said we should keep quiet about it. We had to try and manage it in our own way even though it affected me for a long time psychologically. I had to gradually get over it. I believed so much in the principle of keeping your virginity till you are married. I started showbiz from Teen TV on DBN with Chichi Okaro. Then I used to be so vocal and when we spoke about pre-marital sex and virginity, I was always so passionate about it. It was such a disadvantage and a pity for me.

National Youth Service Corps has threatened to report the schools with highly deficient graduates to the  regulatory  bodies for sanctions following poor quality graduates being registered by some schools for the scheme.

Okorie-Affia, who  regretted that many organisations had rejected corps members  after they found them to  be academically deficient, said  the scheme had also discovered that some higher institutions had been presenting  overage students and products of internally introduced unaccredited courses for mobilisation.
He said there were corps members who could  hardly communicate in English Language, saying the

Father Sells Kids To Pay Off His Debts

A lorry driver deep in gambling debts sold three of his children to pay off his creditors.
The children's mother, Liew Kim Yow, 27, said the 25-year-old man, whom she referred to as her “boyfriend” because they were not legally married, had suggested in September that his mother take care of their two sons, aged one and three and their five-year-old daughter, while they went to Singapore to work.
They have been living together in Serendah, Hulu Selangor, for seven years.
Liew, who is unemployed, stayed at home to take care of the children while the man worked as a lorry driver.
But after three months, she suspected something amiss because their plans to move to Singapore did not materialise and he kept giving excuses each time she wanted to see their children.
“He told me before that someone had offered him RM50,000 to adopt our son and RM20,000 for our eldest daughter. I told him that no matter how poor we were, we could not sell our children,” she said at the MCA Public Complaints and Services Department here yesterday.

Indian Dog Steals 7000 Dollars

A businessman in India's Bihar state has lodged a complaint with the police saying that a stray dog has run away with his bag containing 400,000 rupees ($7,424).
Nakched Mian said the bag was kept on his bed while he went out to wash his hands at a water pump. That was when the dog entered the room and ran off with the bag. After a hunt was launched, 140,000 rupees ($2,597; £1,628) were recovered from a street close to the house. But the rest of the money is still missing. Stray dogs are a common sight on India's streets. Police say the canine may have thought that there was food in the bag.
The incident took place in Gopalganj district, some 150kms (93 miles) north-west of the state capital, Patna. Nakched Mian has given a written report of the incident but lodging a criminal case against the dog is

CBN Governor, Lamido Sanusi Calls For Ban On Religious Organisations


The Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has once again stirred up the polity with his controversial remarks. 
This time, the Governor openly calls for the ban on religious and ethnic associations.
Speaking at an inter-faith dinner organised by the Northern Reawakening Forum (NRF) in Abuja on Tuesday, January 15, 2013, he said, ‘I almost didn’t want to attend this occasion because I am opposed to regional, ethnic and religious groupings in this country.
In fact, I would like the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Jamatul Nasril Islam (JNI), Afenifere and all such other groups to be banned’.
Sanusi defended his call for the ban by accusing religious, ethnic and regional organizations as having political agenda. ‘People now float all sorts of associations that threaten the security of the country so as to be

PHOTO: Social Media Ablaze Over Man's Behaviour Towards Granddaughter

Chicago, U.S. - Bishop Larry Trotter, high-profiled senior pastor of the Sweet Holy Spirit Church, an 8,000-member mega-church, woke up to a huge debate after posting photo of himself and his 4-year-old granddaughter in a bathtub on his Instagram page.
Now social media is ablaze, as this picture has both sinners and saints divided.
Many argue that the picture is innocent and it is social media and the general public that is perverting a quality time between a grandfather and his granddaughter.
Others argue that this is perverted: regardless of how innocent his intentions may have been, no grown man should be in the tub with a child of any age. Another argument against was that no man should ever ever ever take a bath with a female in his family or friends - that’s only for a man and his wife.

The bishop defended himself by saying that while taking a bubble bath, his granddaughter, who was visiting with her parents for the weekend, came in the bathroom and asked him if she could get in the tub. He

"Some NYSC Members Can't Speak English" - DG

Some National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members can hardly communicate in the English language, the Director-General of NYSC, Brig-Gen. Nnamdi Okore-Affia, said.
Okore-Affia made the statement in Ilorin while addressing the 2013 batch a pre-mobilisation workshop.
He said that the level of academic deficiency among corps members had heightened corps rejection and redundancy.
"Unfortunately, too, we have corps members who can hardly communicate in the English language, let alone being able to teach in the classrooms.
"This worrisome development has resulted in a situation whereby members of the public wrongly condemn the NYSC for the poor academic standards displayed by these corps members," Okore-Affia said.
He said the inability of academic institutions to produce eligible corps members had become a herculean task for NYSC management.

P-Square Separates?!

For many, December is the holiday month they look forward to every year. This is not the same for P Square who do back-to-back shows, helping fans enjoy their holiday by performing at concerts, end of year parties and various kinds of events.

Nations Cup: “I Will Strip To My Shorts If We Win The Trophy” – Enyeama

As the Africa Cup of Nations kicks off this weekend in South Africa, Super Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama, has vowed that if Nigeria wins the tournament, he will go half naked.
Enyeama, who is on loan at Maccabi Tel Aviv from Ligue 1 side Lille, is likely to be in between the posts for Stephen Keshi’s team, after Austine Ejide picked up a thigh injury.
“It will be a dream come true and I am certain I will strip to my shorts. Yes, let everyone hear it that I will strip to my shorts if we are champions,” the former Enyimba goalie said.
Beyond the continental fiesta, Enyeama is looking to keep playing till he is 40 years or more.
“I aim to keep playing until am 40 years old. If possible I wish to play till I am 42. I work hard and I am focused. I know that if I do as little as I did today (he spoke to after the Super Eagles’ victory over Dutch side Sparta Rotterdam) in more matches then I can easily play that long.”
The stopper however said he takes each match as it comes, even as Nigeria awaits its first trophy in 19

UNILAG Postpones Convocation As Jonathan Insists On MAULAG

University of Lagos convocation earlier scheduled to take place between Thursday (today) and Saturday has been postponed indefinitely.
Though the university did not state any reason for the postponement, sources claimed that the development followed President Goodluck Jonathan’s insistence to rename UNILAG as Moshood Abiola University of Lagos and effect the change in its certificates as a condition for holding the convocation.
Jonathan on May 29, 2012 renamed UNILAG after the late Chief Moshood Abiola as a mark of honour for the acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.
The announcement was greeted by protests, with the students demonstrating, and the alumni association asking a Federal High Court, Lagos to restrain the Federal Government from renaming the institution.
But the university, our correspondent learnt, had been insistent on retaining its name pending the outcome of different suits filed in court.

Sheik Gumi: "Yakowa And Azazi Perished While Planning Against Muslims"

According to a top security operative, police detectives are studying audio and video tapes of the sermons in which Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Sheik Ahmad Gumi, asserted that the late governor of Kaduna State, Mr. Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa perished along with former National Security Adviser, General Andrew Azazi while strategizing against Northern Nigerian Muslims.
Gumi allegedly affirmed that Yakowa had been engaging in an anti-Muslim agenda, and that it was therefore necessary to avoid the emergence of non-Muslims as governor of Kaduna State in the future, a point that some senior citizens of Kaduna State raised in a detailed memo in which they expressed concern that Gumi’s weekly sermon was likely to cause serious ethno-religious crisis in Kaduna town.
According to the source, the eminent personalities from Kaduna are of the view in view of the volatile nature of Kaduna State, urgent intervention and consultation has become necessary.

Mother And 7 Children Jailed After Converting Back To Christianity From Islam

A mother and her seven children have been jailed for 15 years for converting back to Christianity from Islam in Egypt.
Nadia Mohamed Ali was raised a Christian but converted to Islam 23 years ago when she married Mohamed Abdel-Wahhab Mustafa. Following his death, she planned to convert back to her original faith, along with the rest of her family. But a criminal court in Beni Suef, in central Egypt, sentenced them to jail for 15 years last week, according to reports.
Seven other people, who were involved in the case, were also sentenced to five years in jail. Human rights advocates have now warned the sentence is a sign of things to come in Egypt under the Islamist government. The conversion came to light after the family attempted to get new identity cards in 2004, when one of her children was arrested two years later and confessed the documents had been changed illegally when police noticed he had changed his name and became suspicious. Nadia, her children and the clerks who processed

Kim Kardashian Talks Baby Names, Says Kanye West Is the Love of Her Life

Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Kanye West are just six months away from becoming first-time parents to a little boy or girl. So have they thought at all about a name for their bundle-of-joy? Perhaps something like Kaleb or Kassidy?
"We're not sure yet," the mom-to-be told E! News, adding that she and West still "have to think about" whether they'll give their future son or daughter a "K" name to carry on her family's tradition. "I have to discuss that with my boyfriend to see where we are. But we'll keep the name private, I think, whenever we decide."

In fact, the 32-year-old plans to start holding back a lot more personal information as her due date approaches -- which could make keeping up with the newest and littlest Kardashian somewhat difficult.

PHOTOS: Shameful Pictures Of The Nigerian Police College, Ikeja

The Nigeria Police College, Ikeja, Lagos State is the first in the country. In a recent video report by ChannelsTV, the very deplorable situation of the College is shown in the following images. While posting this, I cannot but wonder what our leaders have been doing. It is a big shame indeed upon the Nigerian government and all their supporters.

Iyaniwura brings to you some of the pictures of the college. You will see the male dormitory 10, constructed in 1940 by colonial masters with its incredibly hellish looks (yes, it looks like hell). The toilets are abhorent and the bathrooms? I wonder how they manage to take their baths in there.
You will also see some students urinating at the back of the building where the drainage system has broken

The Best Way To Tackle Boko Haram - Obasanjo

The recent “carrot and stick” approach recommended by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to the solution of the Boko Haram insurgency should be taken seriously by President Goodluck Jonathan.
Till date, among all our past leaders, Obasanjo has continuously shown concern, worry and proffered solution to this lingering crisis. He, human like all of us, though, has his faults which many of us have at one time or the other kicked against both while he was in or out of power.
Yet, it is often said that, messages are considered while the messenger can be ignored. Obasanjo as a former president and military chief in this country has a lot to offer in terms of experience and tactics in security matters. We cannot for very obvious reasons sideline him when he speaks on similar issues just because we differ with his political moves. We should and must take him seriously because of our interest in building and

Tiger Woods reportedly offered ex-wife $200m to re-marry him and she said yes!

That is if National Enquirer is to be believed. They claim that Tiger Woods is desperate to have his ex-wife Elin Nordegren back and has offered her $200 million to re-marry him and give their family another chance.

Elin is believed to have told him she will consider the proposal - but only if he includes a $350 million anti-cheating clause into the contract. Elin feels the money will keep him from straying.

A source told the Enquirer that Tiger didn't even balk at the demand, he's ready to sign the pre-nup and set a wedding date, after swearing he'd never cheat on her again.
