He could be seen quietly speaking to his girls explaining the sheer enormity of the struggle against apartheid which took place here on the island.

For a short while this afternoon he wasn’t the most powerful man in the world - but just a caring dad.

He explaining to his girls how Mandela, and many other revered names of the fight for freedom, were jailed here in 1964.

Mandela has recalled how on being transported on a wooden ferry to the island prison guards urinated over him.

EXPOSED: Davido Slept With Married Mother Of Three Kids In Italy (PHOTO)

The excitement and thrill of hanging out with a celebrity has driven a married woman and a mother of three, Joyce Osifo into the hands of the known David Adedeji Adeleke popularly known as Davido on the 16th of June during a concert in Napel.

#BBATheChase Eviction: Bolt and Maria out of The Chase

Bolt and Maria were the weakest link this week, they are out of The Chase and heading home. Bolt followed shortly after his lady love Betty, who was Evicted in Week 4 while Maria didn’t even know she was replaced and up for Eviction. Ouch!

Maria, who has never been under the Nomination knife was replaced by Diamond HoH Nando earlier this week, saving his own head. You could see that Maria was shocked but like a true lady she carried herself with confidence and poise.

Big man Bolt, was as stunned but he probably saw this Eviction coming considering that he had dodged it at least three times thanks to Betty and Melvin. Seems like Bolt’s luck has now run out and the Housemates will have to do without their resident bully.

But it’s like Nando had said in his Diary Session, that when a fellow Chasemate is Evicted it only hurts for all of five minutes, they talk about how much of a shock it was and then life goes on. The same will be done for both Maria and Bolt. Life will definitely go on.

SHOCKING: 2 Pakistani Girls Shot Dead For Dancing In The Rain (LOOK)

Two teenage sisters have been murdered in Pakistan after they were accused of tarnishing their family's name by making a video of themselves dancing in the rain.

The girls, aged 15 and 16, are seen running around in traditional dress with two other younger children outside their bungalow in the town of Chilas, in the northern region of Gilgit.

The sisters, named as Noor Basra and Noor Sheza, appear to break into dance and one even flashes a smile at the camera.

However, when the footage was circulated via mobile phones, it caused outrage in the conservative Pakistani town.

Last Sunday the girls were shot alongside their mother in their home by five gunmen.

Police are investigating whether the attack was arranged by the girls' step-brother, named as Khutore, who allegedly wanted to 'restore the family's honour'.

The sisters' other brother has filed a case against Khutore and the four other alleged accomplices who are now believed to be on the run.

Keshi Will No Longer Select Players Alone - NFF

Echoes of Nigeria’s elimination from the FIFA Confederations still reverberates,with President of the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) Aminu Maigari,declaring that Super Eagles coach,Stephen Keshi will no longer have the sole responsibility of choosing players for the national team.

The NFF President while speaking in a magazine show, Soccer Africa on Supersports,questioned the players Keshi took to the tournament in Brazil,adding that he went with inexperienced players.

Following Nigeria’s elimination from the Confederations,criticisms have been trailing the technical crew of the Super Eagles,after the team failed to take their goalscoring of their chances at the tournament.

“Spain brought their best players, but we did not. Why would you bring a local player to play Spain at such a big stage?” Maigari asked.

“This is unacceptable. We have experienced players that were not selected and this is where we have to step in.”

“The coach doesn’t have the sole responsibility on squad selection. We all have to contribute. This team belongs to 165 million people”

“Selections should affect all these people so we cannot continue to let this happen because we need to compete well with others.”

Nigeria crashed out of the Confederations last Sunday,after winning just one game against Tahiti,and losing the other games against Uruguay and Spain,despite putting up good performances.
Keshi in his own defence,said that he selected the right players available to represent the country at the tournament.

“I understand Nigerians are emotive and sentimental sometimes but all the players that went to Brazil deserved to be there,” Keshi told BBC Sport.

“I’m the coach and I can honestly listen to constructive ideas on how we can improve as a team.

“But no-one has come to tell me who to pick and not to select. If the team fails the coach is responsible.

“As the coach, it’s my decision and responsibility. For now, the local players have earned the rights to be in the team.”

Does the NFF have the right to meddle in the choice of players,Keshi takes to a tournament?

''I Have Had Séx With 5 Different Men Since I Got Married 3 Years Ago, My Husband Has No Idea''

I know my story will lead people to attack me but I will appreciate any help I can get.

I got married to my loving husband in April 2010. Although at first, I was not really in love with him, but because I was getting older, and I could not find any good man from my religion and tribe, my parents introduced me to him and pressured us into marriage.

The first time I had an affair, it was a mistake. I ran into my ex and we exchanged Blackberry pins. We chat all the time and at that point, I was not really happy in my marriage so I encouraged him. Soon after, we started to hang out and started sleéping together. He eventually moved from Lagos to Abuja so that ended our affair.

Since then, I have had a few flings with four more men including my friend's husband. I currently have two children with my husband but I feel unsatisfied.

My husband is very loving and kind, and I have grown to love him but I'm not able to stop this extra-marital affair. The sad thing is that my husband has no clue what is going on. I never give him any reason to suspect. I delete all my phone messages even though he does not even check my phones. I make sure I cover my tracks because I want to keep my family together.

Recently I talked to my Pastor who encouraged me to keep praying and fasting but this isn't helping because still keep my men outside and I still see them.

I know I need to stop, but I don't know how. Please Help.


BREAKING NEWS: Former Super Eagles star, Thompson Oliha, is dead

The player died on Sunday morning.

Former Super Eagles midfielder, Thompson Oliha, is dead.

Oliha who was born in October 1968 in Benin City, Nigeria, died in the early hours of Sunday.

Until his death, Oliha was one of the coaches at the Kwara State Football Academy in Ilorin.

A retired Nigerian midfielder, Oliha played for clubs in Africa and Europe during a career marred by injury.

He played for Bendel Insurance (1985-1987), Iwuanyanwu Nationale (1988-1991), Africa Sports (1992-1993), Maccabi Ironi Ashdod F.C. (1993-1994) and Antalyaspor (1994-1995).

As a player, he was known for his powerful shots and abilities in the air. Oliha retired at the age of 27, as a result of a serious knee injury.

One of the wishes of Oliha before his death was for the federal government to fulfil the promise of a house General Sani Abacha promised the Super Eagles for winning the Tunisia 1994 Nations Cup. Sadly, he did not see that come true in his life time.

Oliha becomes the third player to die among the much celebrated Nigeria 1994 squad, joining Uche Okafor and Rashidi Yekini in the great beyond.


Prostitutes beat, injure security men in Akure

Some prostitutes on Saturday beat security personnel attached to the Ondo State Task Force on Environment during the monthly environmental sanitation exercise in Akure, the state capital.

Their uniforms were torn into shreds while they sustained injuries due to the beating they received when they tried to enforce the environmental laws where their brothel was located. The Commissioner for Environment, Chief Sola Ebiseeni, led the task force across the Akure metropolis to ensure compliance with the environmental exercise.

During the exercise, which also took the task force to some towns and villages, some people violating environmental laws were arrested.

However, when the team of the task force personnel got to the hotel, located at Oke Padre, off Lao Street, Akure, they met the prostitutes with their clients drinking alcohol and dancing.

Efforts of the security personnel to make them observe the environment exercise were rebuffed.
The prostitutes prevented their clients from being arrested.

The prostitutes and clients thereafter descended on the Civil Defence and security officials attached to the task force and beat them mercilessly while they resisted arrest.

SHOCKER: Mike Adenuga Pays N200 MILLION For Burial Location

A recent update has revealed that Nigerian Billionaire, Mike Adenuga has spent a whooping N200 Million for a burial site.

The burial site, which is located at Vaults and Garden, an ultra modern cemetery in Ikoyi, Lagos is now final resting place of the rich and affluent.

According to reports, to get an average space in the cemetery would cost about N750, 000 and above. But if you would rather live an even more affluent life after death, N40 Million would get you some of the executive spots.

Report has it that even the super-rich have their own corner. Adenuga's recently deceased sister had one of these to herself. The Globacom boss paid N200 Million to secure a space for his sister. Her next door neighbor in this exclusive section is Gboyega, son of another super rich man, Otunba Adekunle Ojora and his fashionable wife, Ojuolape. Gbegi, like he was popularly known, was born in 1960 and died in 2011.

Right next to him is one of the founders of GT Bank, Tayo Aderinokun. His final resting place is not only very wondrously decorated, but also boasts of his two giant photographs, smiling on those that are still living. We were informed that Before the trio, however, is that of a true man of God, like it is dubbed inside the cemetery – the final resting place of former Redeemed Christian Church of God minister, Pastor Eskor Mfon. Born in 1953, he died in 2007.

It is quite wondrous that these rich are spending so much amount of money to get a posh burial ground, but wouldn't the money be better served on the living, perhaps, donated to a charity?

What do you think?

Three Soldiers Abducted, Another Killed In Yobe

Gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram members killed a soldier and abducted three others during an attack on the soldiers on Thursday night in Potiskum, Yobe State, a military source revealed.

The source confirmed the incident to Premium Times in Damaturu on Friday.

The source, who sought anonymity as he is not permitted to talk to journalists, said the corpse of the deceased soldier was brought from Potiskum and deposited at a hospital morgue in Damaturu, the state capital.

“The attack was a bad one because a soldier was killed and the terrorists kidnapped three other soldiers to an unknown destination,” he said on Friday.
“Some of our search team are combing within and outside the neighborhoods of Potiskum for the missing soldiers. A helicopter gun ship had been deployed from Maiduguri to join in the search team this morning,” he added.

The soldier also revealed that three soldiers were killed and two seriously injured two weeks back during an attack that also led to the killing of secondary school students by suspected Boko Haram members in Damaturu. The gunmen had killed seven secondary school students and two teachers when they attacked Government Secondary School, Damaturu. The gunmen also attacked a military check-point. The Joint Task Force in Yobe had claimed that no soldier was killed in the attack, and only one was injured, while two of the gunmen were killed; a claim our source says is not true.

“It wasn’t true that only a soldier sustained injury in that attack. The terrorists actually invaded the room where the soldiers were sleeping at night at shot the three of them dead. Two others only sustained injury during a separate attack on the same night. Soldiers were able to kill one of the terrorists and arrested one alive,” the source said.

The spokesperson for the Defence Headquarters, Chris Olukolade, denied knowledge of the Thursday night attack and kidnap of the three soldiers.
“I have not got any of such report, normally they forward to us whatever happens in these areas and we’ve not had any of such reports,” Mr. Olukolade said.

Soldiers’ presence in Yobe, as well as Borno and Adamawa, was increased after the declaration of a State of Emergency in the three states by President Goodluck Jonathan. The military has declared major successes against the insurgents in the states with many of their training camps destroyed. The Boko Haram, however, claim they are winning the war against the Nigerian forces.

Tonto Dikeh May Go To Jail For Smoking Igbo; She Cries That People Hate Her

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA has reacted to the photos of Indian Hemp posted by Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, on the social media, boasting that "I smoke ganja".

Disclosing that Tonto Dikeh may spend the next 15 years in prison for daring to smoke Igbo and expose it, the NDLEA spokesman, Mitchell Ofoyeju said:
“Our attention has been drawn to the post quite frankly and I can tell you that action will be taken on it. The law is clear and NDLEA has been very clear on the issue. No one is permitted to sell, use, cultivate or encourage the use of Indian hemp in Nigeria. The weed is one of the banned narcotics in the country."
To had on Friday posted photographs of a wrap of hemp and grains of the weed formed into the letters, ‘Happy birthday POKO.’

She also posted a photograph of herself and added the inscription, ‘Mi smoke ganja mi smoke weed...’ Her picture was also close-up of her face that seemed to depict her in a high state.

Mr. Mitchell Ofoyeju further stated that Tonto Dike's case have already been referred to the appropriate department of the agency for investigation and prosecution.

“NDLEA Act Section 14 (b) states that any person who conspires with, aids, abets, counsels, attempts to commit or is an accessory to any act or offence referred to in this act shall be guilty of an offence under this act and liable on conviction to be sentenced to imprisonment for a term not less than 15 years and not exceeding 25 years," he said.

Possibly reacting to the criticism she has attracted to herself, Tonto Dike wrote on Instagram:
"no 1 kwz my struggle, al they see is Tonto diz, Tonto dat!!!! nt kwin hw hard it hurt deep down to loose ur mom at d age of 3, n it hurt d most nt to hav her enjoy d fruit of her child birth, Mom i missed u alot #POKO"

Sri Lankan man claims to have lived without eating food for FIVE YEARS (LOOK)

A Sri Lankan man claims he has survived without food for the last five years.
Although experts believe humans can only live for two months without a meal, Kirby de Lanerolle insists he has only needed fresh air as nourishment.
The breatharian also claims his lifestyle - which he says harnesses light, wind and the 'vibrations of God' - can reverse the ageing process and make him immortal.

In an interview on TV show Taboo USA cited by The Sun, de Lanerolle said: 'There are energy sources out there that are greater than the food calories you are putting in your body.

'Calories come from photons and light and vibrations and wind. Anything can feed you if your energy centres are open.'

He admits to having eaten seven 500-calorie meals over the last ten months, but claims they made him feel ill.

He said: 'In this consciousness, when I do eat food, it makes me feel very tired. And my alertness goes away when I eat now.'

Breatharians believe food and possibly water are not needed to sustain life.
Instead, all that's required is prana, a vital life force in Hinduism also known as 'living off light'.

Jasmuheen, formerly Ellen Greve, is credited with starting the Breatharian movement.

She advises followers to convert gradually, first becoming a vegetarian, a vegan, moving to raw foods, fruits, then liquids and finally prana.

However, many in the scientific community believe it is a dangerous pseudoscience that has caused many people to starve to death.

According to, de Lanerolle was a drug addict at the age of 16.
But he has gone on to become a Gold medalist at the Junior National Level Championship for Rifle Shooting in 1995, winner of several boxing medals, Executive Advisor to the Ministry of Social Services in Sri Lanka and a successful entrepreneur.

He is also believed to be the only person known to have completed a marathon having only consumed water for three months.

He claims he owes his dramatic turnaround in fortunes to the breatharian lifestyle.
Around five years ago, he read about people who didn't eat for up to six years and didn't drink water for 40 days and 40 nights.

He was also convinced by the writings of a guru who said that cancer, diabetes and heart disease are caused by food.

He now wants to teach others to be breatharians, but experts are worried about his claims because some people have died trying adopt the lifestyle.

Govt Officals To Withdraw Support For OJB Over False Donations

The illness of producer OJB Jezreel has been surrounded by too much publicity and hype that the aim of the campaign is been defeated.

Some hefty amount of money believed to have been donated to the producer by renowned entertainers has turned out to be false stories."False Donations of Artistes for OJB: Government Officials Withdraw

Yes, some entertainers have visited OJB and donated some money but not all the stories are true. Factly speaking Don Jazzy, P-Square, Ruggedman, Mercy Johnson, Iyanya, Julius Aguw have contributed immensely while other names of celebrities not in this list haven’t dropped a dime yet. All other known names circulating different online media outfits today and days before now are false information.

For example D’banj didn’t give N7m, Wizkid didn’t give N3m and 2face didn’t give N1.5m.

Head of committee for the #SaveOJB fund, singer Nomoreloss, is furious as to the controversy this misinformation is causing, especially Govt officials who have threaten to withdraw all financial support.

"I Spread My Legs For Money And I'm Proud Of It"

Listen up. I'm a prostitute.
Yup, I peddle in sex and sexual expression. I spread my legs for money, too, sometimes. I wear red lipstick and high heels and talk dirty. Sometimes I wrap my body in corsets and leather. Sometimes I wear Converse sneakers and jeans. I run my show the way I want it to be run, and I don't roll over and play feminine fantasy mistress.
As a prostitute I rarely did kink with my clients, because my clients were kind of nervous about doing kinky stuff with someone who didn't advertise specifically for that. In London I ended up deciding that my ideal was to ditch both idealized models and be a kinky girlfriend experience, allowing me to do what I really liked: a bit of both. My job satisfaction increased dramatically with that assertion of my agency and my refusal to indulge the dichotomy, something that feels safe for other sex workers but felt stifling to me. In this
piece I say "pro-domme" and "prostitute" interchangeably to embrace all three of my experiences in the profession; of course, other workers' limits vary.

Do I sell sex? Yes.
Looking over the comments on my last piece, I was amused and saddened to see that people thought that I was glamorizing the work, and yet I was someone no one decent wanted to be around. I haven't found that to be true, of course, but that stigma is part of what keeps sex workers marginalized and at risk for assault, rape, and murder. Abusers know they can get away with hurting sex workers, because society says sex workers have no self-worth and are isolated. I was told multiple times that sex workers have a lifespan of 34 years -- maybe it has something to do with the way people treat sex workers as less than human, including within the comments on pieces about sex work. And some of the worst comments have come from other feminists, women who feel they have a right somehow to gaslight me, tell me I'm worthless, and treat me like an enemy, not like another woman, and all so that we "think of the poor victims" instead of thinking how those funds are misappropriated by people in power to line their own pockets. Funny that.

I think that in our consumerist society, we tend to judge people on what we think they're worth an awful lot, whatever their profession. I mean, I can't show up to the office wearing whatever I want, not having brushed my hair or teeth; no matter where you work, looking presentable is generally required. I don't think that's limited to sex work. But sex work is older than consumerism. It used to be sacred. And honestly, if I was in an environment where my housing and food needs were taken care of in a quality way, and if I didn't need money to get by the way we do now, I'd be a sacred whore, doing it for the energy and the exchange, not for the money.
But I don't live in that society. I need to put food on the table. If I want to be able to improve my life and quality of living, I need to make moola. I choose to do sex work, where I set my price and hours and vacation time myself (particularly in the U.S., where we have one of the lowest vacation time minimums in the Western world). I say, "This is what an hour of my time is worth to me," and if a person disagrees, they call someone else. That's OK. It narrows down whom I see into a bunch of folks who appreciate me in ways I would never be appreciated in the office cubicle world. And I have the control. I get to decide how I want to budget, whom I see and when, whom to be polite to, and whom to decline.
I didn't have that right when I was an admin.
As an independent sex prostitute I get to decide whom to see, so during my sessions, we tend to explore queer sexuality. My sexuality, mind; most of my clients are straight men, or at least thought they were when we started! And rarely, if ever, has it been about penis-in-vagina sex; men don't come to me for that, because I demand more out of them. I expect them to challenge their assumptions of what makes male and female, what is appropriate and what isn't. We discuss and explore power: who has it, and how, and why. I enjoy demonstrating that penetration is not a male act, or even something only men enjoy. I enjoy discussing sex, and gender and class. I like to help men in positions of power rethink femininity and feminism. My work is intellectually stimulating and challenging, and it uses my brainpower more than any other job I've had.
And yeah, I also like sex, and I like sex with men. How does that make me less of a feminist? As a sex worker, I set terms, I create clear and defined boundaries. Sex work has taught me how to say "no" and stick to it, including in my relationship with my fiancé. I don't see how that can possibly not be empowering for someone like me.
I am sick and tired of having to explain that, yeah, I do all that and I support women's rights. Yeah, I do feel empowered. I put on my lipstick not as an expression of femininity but as a queer femme. Don't take that agency away from me. I put on lipstick not because I feel less sexy without it or because men insist (I don't see the sort of men who would, though they do exist). I put on lipstick as an accessory, a piece of armor that tempts and marks me as "other." Lipstick is just the beginning of how I mark you as mine. It is part of my ritual. It is as much a part of calling down the Goddess for me as my bath or meditation before a session. My makeup is part of my process, and no, it's not for the client. It's for me. Who has the right to take that from me?
I don't need anyone's approval. That's what women's rights taught me. I may get misrepresented by the media. I may get slagged off by moralistic people. But I will demand acknowledgment. I am a feminist, and a whore.

And I exist.

Make A Call While Driving And Go To Jail - FRSC Warns

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has announced a newly adopted strategy that would ensure that any person caught using the mobile phone while driving, would no longer be fined but immediately taken to court and jailed.

Corp Marshal, FRSC, Mr. Osita Chidoka said other offences like speed driving, dangerous overtaking and overloading would equally attract court action instead of the usual fines.

The FRSC boss, who was speaking at a news conference in Abuja, said these new measures are part of a newly launched campaign to reduce the increased spate of road crashes in the country.

Commercial bus drivers are now expected to install speed limit devices in their vehicles so they henceforth should not exceed 100km per hour.

National President of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) however admitted that some drivers are guilty of the aforementioned road accident causing crimes.

The FRSC says it is partnering with several organizations including oil companies to fulfill its promise to make Nigerian roads one of the safest in the world by the year 2020.


Nigeria's Coat Of Arms Used In A Hollywood Movie? (SEE PHOTOS)

This was sent in by a reader:


So i was watching a Hollywood movie titled ‘BAD A S S’ and the movie was indeed BAD A S S. But the most BAD A S S thing about the movie is that the Nigerian coat of arm was used twice in the movie. What appeared to look like the Nigerian coat of arm was first shown at a scene where the main actor was filling out a police recruitment form. The second was when he received a letter about his application....See the pics below:

Dear Readers, Is that the Nigerian coat of arm and is this legal?
