‘I stabbed my husband with a bottle to scare him’ – Woman tells court

Law court rape

A woman in Ekiti has had her 18-year marriage dissolved after she admitted to stabbing her husband and pouring hot water on him.
Omoniyi Odunayo told the court that his wife, Bosede posed a threat to his life and that they were always fighting.
The wife admitted that she had assaulted her husband but that she had only done so to keep him from marrying another wife.
The Tribune reports:
The judge, Mrs Olayinka Akomolede, in her judgment, held that the marriage had broken down irretrievably and consequently dissolved the marriage.
Akomolede awarded custody of the eldest child to the husband and the two younger ones to the wife, and ordered that the husband should be responsible for their education.
She also ordered that Omoniyi should pay N5,000 as monthly allowance for the upkeep of each of the two children, while access to the children was granted to both parents.

Brazilian City of Sao Paulo Enters 3rd Day of Subway Strike as World Cup Approaches

Sao Paulo Strike Bella Naija

Subway workers in Sao Paulo, the host city of the world cup opening match in Brazil, entered the third day of their indefinite strike today.
The workers have been picketing and blocking subways. Authorities fear that this unrest could disrupt the games, which commence in just six days, The Telegraph reports.
Protests have reportedly turned violent, with police firing tear-gas in crowds of protesters and rowdy protesters being beaten with batons. As the violence escalates, workers have become even more obstinate.
FIFA is urging authorities to ensure that fans can get to the opening match via public transportation. However, if the strike is not over by next Thursday, which is when the games begin, FIFA’s request may be difficult to carry out.
Workers are reportedly protesting because of failed negotiations with the government for a 16.5%  pay raise.

JUST IN: Ejike Uzoenyi to replace injured Elderson Echiejile in Super Eagles World Cup Squad

Super Eagles Head Coach Stephen Keshi has served another suprise having opted for petite winger Ejike Uzoenyi to replace injured left-back Elderson Echiejile in his final squad to the Brazil 2014 World Cup.
Echiejile had been under close observation in the past days after cupping a harmstring injury and medics have stated that he is only 40% fit and would need between 10 days and as much as three weeks to get back near fulll fitness.   
It was in this light that many had predicted the possible return of Turkey-based defender Taye Taiwo to the Eagles set-up but the Big Boss has opted otherwise as he has gone for the CHAN 2014 MVP Uzoenyi whose intial drop from the final roster was in itself a surprise to many.

The CIA debuts on Twitter


WASHINGTON: In the movie "Tomorrow Never Dies," James Bond famously claims that he has "enjoyed learning a new tongue," prompting a saucy Ms Moneypenny to riposte, "You were always a cunning linguist, James." In keeping with the times, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the world's premier spook outfit, threw its hat in the social media on Friday, essaying its first tweet and attracting a raft of followers — and repartees.

"We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet," the @CIA account tweeted in its smart-alecky debut, with the kind of droll humor the British spymaster was known for. Within hours, the tweet was relayed 220,000 times and the Agency garnered more than 400,000 followers, prompting it to continue its tongue-in-cheek sortie.

"Thank you for the @Twitter welcome! We look forward to sharing great #unclassified content with you," it

Over 150 Teenage Kurdish Students Reportedly Abducted by Syrian Islamic Militants

ISIS Bella Naija

A militant group that used to be affiliated with al Qaeda has reportedly abducted over 150 teenage Kurdish students in Syria.
The militant group, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), has kidnapped the male students who are between the ages of 15 to 18, and is holding them hostage at a Sharia law school where they are being forced to take Islamic training, CNN reports.
“They are training them in Islam and prayer, but we are afraid that they are teaching them to carry out operations in Kobani. We are very concerned that they will use the children for their terrorism,” says Nouri Mahmoud, a member of the local Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD). 
The Syrian government reportedly refused to set up exam-testing centres in the Kurdish-controlled city of Kobani. As a result, over 1,500  students had to travel to Aleppo to take their year-end exams. 
Last week, ISIS allegedly stopped the buses driving students back from exams to their hometown of Kobani

Lagos Judge Frees Man After 4 Years in Prison over Police Error

After spending four years in prison while facing an armed robbery trial, an accused, Mr Tega Okokushe, has been discharged and acquitted by a Lagos High Court in Ikeja, for failure of police to identify the real culprit.

The defendant was arrested by men of the Nigeria Police in Ojo, Lagos, who accused him of having robbed one Chika Obi at his residence in Iba, Lagos, dispossessing him of his laptop, phone and charger.

But in her judgment after four years, Justice Lateefat Okunnu said:
"The information in proof of the evidence shows that there was armed robbery. What is to be focused and proved is whether the defendants before the court were among the gang that carried out the robbery. The issue to also consider is whether there is an identification linked to the defendants.”
According to Justice Okunnu, the victim of the robbery (Obi) never identified the defendants as part of the robbery gang and he never appeared before the court, which makes his statement to the police not to suffice.
“Where the robber was not arrested at the scene of the crime, the prosecution should prove the identification

According to a recent interview with rapper Phyno, who within a few years has placed the genre of Igbo rap on a high pedestal on the Nigerian music scale, if he can achieve his ambition of getting Genny as his own, then he must have accomplished the biggest dream in his life.

Just Like Nigerian Pastors, Gospel Artistes Can’t Lead You To Christ - Singer Etcetera

Just like our Nigerian pastors, Nigerian gospel songs cannot lead you to Christ. You can hate me all you want for saying this. After all, the early Christians were hated by the world for speaking the truth. Jesus himself warned us of this in John 15:19, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own, but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
The truth is that Nigerian gospel songs are not spiritually uplifting. They are mostly about the things of the flesh’ about riches and fame. The simple use of religious terms and phrases here and there is not enough to lead anyone to Christ. I dare you to go to any Nigerian gospel musician’s website and see if you will find a simple plan of salvation. You won’t. 

Most of the songs being sold to the public as “Christian songs” are religious rubbish. You must have heard some gospel artistes claiming that people are coming to God through their music, but are they coming to Christ to be born again? There is a huge difference in singing in the name of God and singing for people to be
