After reading this story of a bomber weeping profusely all the time for missing the opportunity of not going to heaven because he didn’t die with the bomb victims.
I couldn’t stop wondering if these suicide bombers are hypnotised into carrying out such attacks and why will it be on the innocent people?
If anyone approaches me to carry out such acts…..I’ll wonder why that person won’t do it by himself, afterall good leaders lead by example isn’t it? I’ll tell you to do it by yourself.
My question is…if for example I have a problem with a particular leader, will killing innocent citizens of the country make the leader die? *seriously shaking my head*
Religion has made the world a sad place instead of a happy place.

Woman who already had 5 children delivered premature quadruplets totalling the number of her children to 9. For some this would’ve been some good news and blessings, but for this woman, she cries out saying that the blessing is too much for her. This happened in the rural Hospital in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
But will you blame this woman and her husband for having mixed feelings about these young ones? They don’t have money to take care of them all, and they live in a country (Nigeria)In a country where the Government does little or nothing to help her citizens and people wallow in abject poverty while their leaders and church pastors fly their private jets and eat from golden plates with golden spoons.
Hopefully, people will come forward and adopt these kids or assist in raising them, I am inetersted in doing so if permited.
I have not been able to understand or get around the true issues that have led to this uprising. A popular report claim, they where protesting over the embassy lack of cooperation in securing the release of the corpse of a Nigerian lady who died in the country but their actions seem a bit barbaric
Question about the Video below, is this really the best way of having your voices heard ???? A protest eemnn yes!…. maybe when necessary, But a violent protest hell no!!!!!
The Bayelsa Police Command, yesterday, confirmed the Sunday attack on a foreign vessel by suspected armed pirates along the coastal areas of Brass and Southern Ijaw local councils of the state, with the kidnapping of six sailors on board vessel.
Police sources also confirmed that the kidnappers had made a ransom of $1.3 million ransom to effect their release.
The attacked vessel identified as Armada Tuah operated by the Lagos-based Century Group had a 15-member crew.
Though the position of the vessel could not be confirmed as at the time of the attack, the police, according to the company’s report, stated: “Three of those abducted are from Ukraine, two from India, one from Russia.
“One of the kidnappers called to demand N200 million (one million euros, $1.3 million).”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Fidelis Odunna, (DSP) confirmed the incident.
He said “We have deployed intelligence personnel in search of the six workers as well as arrest the kidnappers.”
Five Indian sailors it would be recalled were also in December kidnapped in a pirate attack around Bayelsa waterways and were later released.
The kidnapping stories are getting serious daily, and am not sure what strategies Nigerian Government have put in place to tackle this problem. Especially the fact that majority of these kidnappers are from foreign countries like Sudan, Somalia, Iran etc. However, they team up with the local terrorist groups to ask for ransoms.

The 49 year old wife of the president of the United States of America, Michelle Obama when asked about her hair cut by Rachael Ray, jokingly responded that mid-life crisis is the inspiration of her new haircut with bangs. The mother of two added that she cut her bangs because she can’t get a sports car and won’t be allowed to bungee jump.
Her new look was first revealed last month just a few days away from the presidential inauguration ceremonies.
I think I agree with the majority of comments on her new look, most I have seen say she looks younger, although Robert Stuart also added ” softer and more approachable” to the list of attributes associated with Michelle’s new hair cut…I am not quite sure what he meant? Anyways I also heard Mr President himself has made several positive references to his wife’s new bangs. I guess that is all that truly matters
Remember this picture? A lady who said her police Fiancee poured a hot burning stew on her during a fight between the two of them.
According to the new twist culled from Punch Metro 18.02.2013
The Lagos State Police Command has described the condition of Mary Sunday, the 27-year-old lady who was allegedly assaulted with a pot of boiling stew and lighted stove, as a self-inflicted one.
PUNCH Metro had last Thursday reported that Sunday was allegedly assaulted by her fiancé, Corporal Isaac Gbanwuan, in August 2012 at their home at Pedro Police Barracks. She is currently at the Igbobi Orthopaedic Hospital after having spent five months in another private hospital in Bariga.
Sunday had told PUNCH Metro on February 14 that Gbanwuam assaulted her over a phone call. In a bid to escape, she had run into a neighbour’s kitchen where a pot of stew was boiling on a kerosene stove. Gbanwuam, who was in pursuit, allegedly seized the kerosene stove with its contents and threw them at Sunday.
But the state Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Damascus Ozoani, told PUNCH Metro that the allegations in Sunday’s petitions were false.
He said, “The allegation that Gbanwuam assaulted Sunday is misleading. This case has been investigated by the Provost Office of the command. The police have taken statements from Sunday, Gbanwuam and other eye witnesses at the Pedro Police Barracks. I have copies of the statements by the eye witnesses.
“One of the witnesses, who lives in the same block with Sunday, Mrs. Ayewunmi Bola, said, ‘I was in my kitchen and went back into my room to get something from the fridge. When I came back, I met Sunday in my kitchen and Isaac in the passage. Suddenly I felt hot water splash on me and I withdrew back into the room. The next I knew, Mary came out of the kitchen and ran into my room. That was when I saw that Mary and Isaac were covered in flames’.
“According to this woman, the Corporal was trying to douse the fire that was consuming Sunday.”
Ozoani also produced another statement made by another neighbor, Mrs. Edith Igene, who claimed to have witnessed the incident.
The DPPRO said, “Again, I will read this statement by Mrs. Igene as she wrote it. She said, ‘I heard a noise from my neighbour Sunday’s apartment, there was a quarrel. Sunday ran into my neighbour’s kitchen and we were telling her to come out. Instead, Sunday took the cooking pot on the stove and splashed the content on us. But when she took the stove to throw at Isaac, the kerosene poured on her and she caught fire’.
“So you can see that the two witnesses debunked Sunday’s claim.
Ozoani also described as untrue, Sunday’s claims that she had been abandoned by Gbanwuam.
He said, “They say Gbanwuam abandoned his fiancée. That is false because it means you did not care for the person. Gbanwuam had an agreement with the police at Pedro Division and he was paying Sunday’s hospital bills at the hospital in Bariga.
“Her bills were being paid in installments; Gbanwuam is yet to complete the payment. Right from when Sunday was taken to Christiana Hospital, Gbanwuam has been taking care of her. It was when she was taken away from the hospital that he last heard from Sunday. Sunday stopped picking his calls and her sister too wouldn’t speak to Gbanwuam.
“Up until the time that Sunday was taken away from Bariga, it was only Gbanwuam and his sisters that were taking care of her until her family was informed.”
“The Lagos State Police Command is not insensitive. I can tell you that at this moment, the Commissioner of Police is interested in this case and has passed instructions to the Provost to conclude investigations.”
Hmmmmnnnn…not sure what to think again man! But whatever the case maybe “Domestic violence” needs to be addressed in Nigeria.
Two men, including a prophet of a white-garment church have been arrested for being in possession of human body parts.
PUNCH Metro learnt that the suspects were arrested on Saturday in Ikotun area of Lagos State.
It was learnt that one of the suspects, Kunle Olaide, who was carrying a polythene bag, was accosted by some policemen attached to the Ikotun Division.
The source said, “Policemen attached to Ikotun division accosted Olaide and another man on Saturday morning with a bag. All of a sudden, one of the men ran away.
“This aroused the policemen’s suspicion and they insisted on knowing what was inside the bag. When the bag was opened, fresh human parts and two plastic bottles filled with blood were recovered from the bag.
“They also found five fingers, human heart, liver, kidney and intestines, all concealed inside a bowl filled with water. The different parts were tied in separate polythene bag and were all put inside the bag.”
The Lagos State Deputy Police Public Relation Officer, Mr. Damascus Ozoani, confirmed the incident.
He said, “Olaide led policemen to a church they had been keeping the human parts. A certain Prophet Dare Akinrosoye was also arrested.”

Message from egosentrik: I urge you reading this story to please look out for these little ones- pupils, students, brothers, sisters, daughters, sons, nephews, nieces, friend’s child etc to find out how they feel and what concerns they have about their classmates, friends or seniors at school. So many children are victimized everyday as a result of bullying and they are so afraid to discuss this. Not all of them might end up committing suicide, but it affects them psychologically resulting to low self esteem and poor performance with subjects at school. Although I don’t know Aaron or any of his family members, but I sure have cried my eyes out writing this post and will end posting anything today in respect for this young lad. I am truly upset right now. May his gentle, tender,innocent and loving soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.

Andrew Harvey, the British husband of the late singer and ex-Big Brother Africa housemate, Goldie, has said he had no problems with his late wife’s lifestyle, adding that he even encouraged her to be controversial because it is “marketable.”
Andrew told SUNDAY PUNCH during an online interview that his marriage to the singer was a happy one and they had only recently decided to have children together.
Asked if he agreed with Goldie’s controversial behaviour at the BBA house, he said, “We (Goldie and I) knew the pitfalls of the show and understood the game strategy. I think she did very well, I said ‘make controversy because people love it.’”
Andrew, who is an engineer and has been married to the deceased since 2005, said he decided to stay in the shadows because of the nature of his job.
He said he encouraged Goldie’s lifestyle and wanted her to be happy at all times, adding that he didn’t want to stop her from fulfilling her dreams.
Andrew said he and Goldie had dreams of growing old together and was sad that this was no longer possible.
“Goldie and I preferred this way (secrecy) because I did not want media attention because of my work. I had no disagreement with her lifestyle and I encouraged her to follow her dreams. We often joked about being together like a pair of old slippers
“I did not want her to say ‘if only’ when we were wearing those slippers. That was why I encouraged her to live her dreams,” he said.
Andrew, who is an expatriate in Nigeria, denied reports in some quarters that his wife died as a result of substance abuse. He said Goldie had never been involved in hard drug.
Asked about their long-term goals together, Andrew said Goldie’s demise was very painful because they had agreed last Christmas to have children together.
He said apart from their personal goals, they had planned to set up a charity organisation which would cater for the less privileged.
“We planned to set up a Non-governmental Organisation to help the less fortunate achieve their potential,” he said.
