He and the 16-year-old had sneaked back to the house on the last day of the term when the mother suddenly turned up.
She began searching the house for a boy — and was aghast when she discovered the 35-year-old skulking under the mattress. She called cops who yesterday confirmed: “A man was arrested on suspicion of abusing a position of trust.”
A source said: “The pair had gone back to the girl’s house because they thought no one would be there.
“But the mum came home earlier than expected and caught them.
“She went into her daughter’s room and found the teacher hiding under the bed. It was a terrible shock. I think she had only come home to grab some lunch. The mum went berserk.”
The teacher — arrested and quizzed for several hours — was last night on police bail over the antics in Bolton, Gtr Manchester. He cannot be identified for legal reasons. The school head — whose staff were last year rated “outstanding” by Ofsted — refused to say if the teacher had been suspended.
Though Kehinde was the first to go public with the news of their separation on Facebook, Funke Akindele gave her ears to her in-laws who felt she could still change her mind and that separation actually is not the solution to the problem.
Funke told E24-7MAGAZINE on Friday:
That place is not for me, I have been through hell and back.
I was abused emotionally and verbally. Really, I felt we could work things out when the trouble started two months after the marriage.
But I made up my mind and shut the door of the marriage at him when the trouble was coming to me too much.
I stooped to conquer him; buried my fame and name to make him my husband, but it did not work. At a point in time, I asked if it's not the same man that was all over me before we married.
He nearly got me off my career. He called me severally; I did not pick his calls but when he realized my silence was tormenting him, he took to Facebook.
Ask him when did he come to my house last? He left me here in my rented apartment with nothing and he will just dash in and dash out. He gets abusive, caustic anytime we have a misunderstanding and often told me to my face, he's going to his wife in Oshodi.
He sent me SMS that he has seen a buyer for his house at Adeniyi Jones for N40million. He asked me if he should sell it and that if he does, he will buy me a new car and a rent me a new apartment.
Why now? I don't need all that, I want my sanity. I respect him to the end but he chose to treat me that way. He said he wanted to clip my wings.
After Funke ignored him, he sent her another text abusing her and calling her names.
“So you can see that he does not mean well for me,” Funke re-iterated.
E24-7 checks revealed as at Saturday evening that Kehinde was combing the nooks and crannies of Ikorodu to locate Funke's dad's house.
Now that the cookie has crumbled, Kehinde has been calling and sending text messages, begging her to come back.
He boasted: “I will do anything to win my wife back.”
Observers of the marriage from inception feel that when fame and money come to a meeting point in a relationship, it will result in problems if the couple are not committed and disciplined.
Funke and Kehinde rarely spent substantial time together even at the peak of their marriage.
Both kept to hectic schedules by virtue of their chosen professions.
While Funke is often involved in back-to-back shooting on movie sets, Kehinde jumps from one construction site to another; pressing buttons for his political ambitions; and keeping dates with his wife at home and other women by the side.
This sort of arrangement invariably makes keeping faith with the vows of the union very difficult. In the long run, suspicion will rear its ugly head and the couple will eventually drift apart, especially when they don't live under the same roof.
A Jeddah Criminal Court found Raif Badawi, who has been in prison since June 2012, guilty this week of insulting Islam through his website and in television comments.
Reported Saudi paralysis sentence ‘outrageous,’ rights group says
“This incredibly harsh sentence for a peaceful blogger makes a mockery of Saudi Arabia’s claims that it supports reform and religious dialogue,” said Nadim Houry, the deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “A man who wanted to discuss religion has already been locked up for a year and now faces 600 lashes and seven years in prison.”
His lawyer, Waleed Abu al-Khair, told Human Rights Watch that Judge al-Harbi read the verdict Monday. The court is expected to send him a written notification by August 6. They’ll have 30 days to appeal.
Raif Badawi has been in prison since June
Ensaf Haidar, Badawi’s wife, said she’s devastated by the news.
“I don’t know what to do,” Haidar said Wednesday. “Raif did nothing wrong.”
Haidar and the couple’s three children now live in Lebanon.
Estranged from her family, Haidar said it would be impossible to take her children back to Saudi Arabia. The stigma is too strong there.
“You feel like everybody’s accusing you,” she said, close to tears, in an April interview. “Like everybody’s against you, at war with you.”
CNN has made several attempts to reach the Saudi Arabia government for comment but received no response.
Badawi’s legal troubles started shortly after he started the Free Saudi Liberals website in 2008. He was detained for one day and questioned about the site. Some clerics even branded him an unbeliever and apostate.
Last summer, Human Rights Watch released a statement urging Saudi authorities to free Badawi.
“Saudi authorities should drop charges and release the editor of the Free Saudi Liberals website for violating his right to freedom of expression on matters of religion and religious figures,” a statement from the group said at the time.
Rights groups accuse Saudi authorities of targeting activists through the courts and travel bans. Many were outraged when two of the country’s most prominent reform advocates, Mohammed Al-Qahtani and Abdullah Al-Hamid, were sentenced in March to 10 years in prison apiece.
Amnesty International called that trial “just one of a troubling string of court cases aimed at silencing the kingdom’s human-rights activists.”
Asked in January about accusations that Saudi Arabia is cracking down on dissent, Maj. Gen. Mansour Al-Turki, spokesman for the Saudi Interior Ministry, told CNN, “At the Interior Ministry, our area of responsibility is security.”
He added, “My understanding is that these cases are being looked at by the courts now. Nobody will comment on cases being looked at by the courts.”
Lawyers from Femi Falana chambers, who served as the defendant's attorney at a Magistrate court in Abuja, told Saharareporters that Mr. Okonkwo was let out of police detention after they made a spirited defense of his liberty.
The Magistrate judge, Lamido Kabir, had initially played hide and seek in the case, letting the police detain Mr. Okonkwo over the weekend claiming he was unavailable to hear the case after the suspect was brought to court last Friday.
However, on Monday, the Magistrate gave stiff bail conditions requiring Mr. Okonkwo to provide two sureties, including a traditional ruler and a person with landed property in Abuja.
Yesterday, he was let go after meeting the bail conditions.
Mr. Okonkwo was arrested on July 13 by a dozen well-armed Special Anti-Robbery Squad operatives in Lagos, just four days after arriving from South Africa. Mr. Okonkwo's arrest reportedly emanated from the office of the Inspector General of Police office, who gave the order because of a petition penned by Offor who claimed that Okonkwo "criminally defamed" him in an online commentary in a community listserv of the Orafite community.
Okonkwo, who also hails from Oraifite community, criticized the billionaire for reportedly donating $1.3 million to Rotary International for polio eradication while Oraifite lacks basic amenities and the people suffer abject poverty.
Okonkwo was seized in Lagos but was later moved to a police cell on the outskirts of Abuja, Nigeria's federal capital. He was denied access to lawyers and relatives, and spent more than two weeks in detention.
Observers say the case demonstrates how Nigeria’s public institutions are often and routinely deployed by the rich by the rich and well-connected against the truth.
A recent photo on Twitter uploaded by a woman has got a lot of people enraged. She posts a pic of her and her baby daughters backside while asking followers to decide which of them is “Thicker”...See the pics after the cut:
According to an eyewitness, the thief (name unknown) had snatched a woman’s handbag in another part of town, Ugbeyi Sapele and sped off on his motorcycle.
The poor woman couldn’t raise an alarm, but fortunately a soldier who saw her bag get snatched quickly borrowed someone’s Hilux and gave the thief a hot chase. Somehow, the thief got away.
But not for too long. Cos nemesis caught up with the thief when he got to Shell road. Some young men noticed the motorcyclist was holding an handbag but was without a passenger. When the thief was approached, he sped off. But unknown to him, where he rode to was a dead-end.
The youth chased him into the bush, caught him, battered him, and threw him into a pit, waiting for the police to arrive.
Some members of a vigilante group came to take the thief away, but onlookers refused and told them they were waiting for the police to come and carry him.
Finally the police came and what they could say was “we can’t carry him the way he is” and they went away.
Then somebody took a motorcycle and went to call the army. When the soldiers came, one of them said this was the guy I chased this morning with someone’s Hilux but I didn’t know where he diverted to with his motorcycle cos I wasn’t familiar with the route.
The soldiers ordered for him to be put into the trunk of their car. While doing that, a girl shouted “he is my brother” repeatedly.
The soldier dashed off to her, flogged her with the fan-belt he was holding, kicked her feet off the ground and beat her till she took off.
Onlookers chased her, caught her and handed her to the soldiers that she might be a spy. The soldiers drove off with the owner of the bag (someone called her on phone while she was in another area), the thief in the trunk of the car and the girl on a motorcycle with some youth.
The Security officers has already boundled him into an awaiting lorry back to Jail. His attempt to act sick and injured to attract sympathy was pushed aside by the Judge, who ordered his immediate detention.
The Barcelona striker was allegedly pictured on the cover of Argentina’s Pronto magazine with a blonde dancer in a Las Vegas nightclub. In the photo, his hands were wrapped around her waist and his face was pressed against her chest.
The headline on Pronto read: “The Photo That Puts Lionel Messi’s Marriage At Risk.”
The magazine says the photos were taken during Messi’s visit to Sin City in early July as a guest at a party hosted by Brazilian legend Ronaldo at the Wynn Las Vegas & Encore Resort.
Pronto says the photos are not doctored, and were taken off a cell-phone.
The Argentine gossip publication said Messi’s relationship with his wife, Antonella Roccuzzo, 22, is now in ‘crisis,’ according to Pronto sources.
“There is nothing to suggest anything more happened (between Messi and the dancer) but still Antonella is furious,” the source tells Pronto. “She can’t believe he has been so stupid and feels very let down by Leo. Whether she’ll give him the red card or not remains to be seen but it’s fair to say the sofa at their home may be getting a lot of use at the moment.”
The photo is the latest scandal for Messi, one of the best soccer players of his generation.
Messi paid $13 million in back taxes to the Spanish government last month and is looking to settle an alleged $5 million debt that led to tax fraud accusations. The payments covered his image rights for 2010 and 2011, Catalan newspaper La Vanguardia reported. The Spanish paper suggested the player is looking to reach an agreement on millions more he allegedly owes the government.
The payment could help Messi and his father, Jorge, avoid a court appearance Sept. 17 in Gava. Father and son, along with their financial advisers, have denied accusations that they illegally funnelled money to offshore accounts to avert paying taxes.

The Honurable member gets a shoulder from colleagues as he appeared in a Port Harcourt court to face murder charges.
Details coming shortly.
The tragedy occurred at Isapodo area of Ijebu-Ife, in Ijebu North-East Local Government Area of Ogun State on Sunday.
The victim, Mr Dele Oje, described as an easy going person by his neighbours, was said to have been allegedly killed by his friend, simply identified as Muyideen after the latter requested for a phone charger from the former.
Investigations revealed that Oje had earlier argued with his friend over who owned the charger minutes before he was killed.
Shortly before his death, an argument had ensued between the duo, prompting neighbours in the two-storey building to intervene.
Unfortunately, the neighbours had barely left the scene of the argument, when Dele’s friend descended on him as the deceased attempted to have his breakfast and slashed his throat with a sharp object.
A neighbour of the deceased who did not want to be named, narrated what she described as an unfortunate incident, said: “We had earlier settled a seeming quarrel between the friends over the ownership of a telephone charger when Muyideen killed his friend’’.
‘We got there later only to see blood stains on the wall and floor of the building, an indication that Oje had attempted to escape from his assailant’’.
Another resident who identified himself as Abayomi Oyeyemi also said that after the murder, Muyideen fled only to be fished out in a near-by bush, three hours after.
The body has been deposited at the Ijebu-Ode General Hospital mortuary while Muyideen who was arrested by the youths in the community had been handed over to police at the Ogbere division.
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr. Muyiwa Adejobi, who said he was yet to be briefed by the Ogbere Divisional Police Officer, added that he did not have details of the incident.
He said his joystick was blessed and that "the Lord had consecrated him with divine milk of the ''Holy Spirit" and, of course, he had to release it in order to "evangelize".
"He has convinced us that only God could come into our lives through our mouth and that's why he would do what he did". Often, after worship, pastor Valdeci would take us to where the funds were kept at the back of the Church and asked us to have Oral sex with him until the Holy Spirit would come through ***********". This is the testimony of one of his victims.
The pastor is already in jail, but said he intends to continue watering his cellmates with his sacred milk.
D’banj and 'Eni Duro' crooner Olamide were the stars of the night, while Dr SID, Sound Sultan, Obesere and others gave a fantastic and mind blowing performance

What many people do not know however, is that Nando appears to be a troubled child. In 2011, he tried to take his own life, see his tweet below…
Some weeks ago, the Tanzanian lad also admitted to being addicted to a variety of ‘medications’ in his past. He also gave insight to a very troubled childhood which may be responsible for his nonchalant attitude.
Pokello dumped Stunner for Elikem live on television. The pair are better known for their s3x tape which effectively curtailed Stunner's musical career. Many feel that the fame hungry Pokello used Stunner to grab the limelight.
Now he has catchy track that says that he is available on the market. In the chorus he says Bye bye ndoenda, ndotsvaga mumwe and somewhere else he says ndakuenda zvangu kunotsvaga mumwe.
Last night, the Housemates made jaws drop across Africa with a sexy show. After annihilating a bottle of vodka, the Chasemates decided to play the náked numbers game. The Chasemates sat in a circle and followed a countdown order.
When Dillish's turn came, the Namibian cutie stumbled over her words and because of her fumble, was forced to stríp. "Take it off, take it off!" the boys shouted. At first, Dillish protested telling her waiting audience "I'm so weak from the alcohol". However, the gang was having none of that and waited on her to stríp. And stríp she did.
Ghana's Elikem also got to stríp down as well and so did Beverly, who flashed a bit of side-bóob.

Well we want to put ALL the rumours to rest. First of all, we have the interview that has everyone up in arms that Davido denied Pendo’s existence. And keep your eyes open for more on that.
Secondly, I personally decided to call up Pendo and ask her what was the REAL deal. So here is our conversation (partly redacted to get right down to all the juicy parts) about everything.
So what is all this wahala about Davido blocking you off of his facebook?
Pendo : If people had done even a little research, they would Davido does not even have a Facebook account. I NEVER said I was in touch with him through Facebook. I got in touch with him through a good friend of his *redacted* and that’s where everything started. He did the intro.
So, seriously, did you sleep with Davido?
Pendo: Errrrrrrrrrrm (laughs cheekily) (There is IRREFUTABLE proof that Pendo did spend the night with Nigerian superstar, if you want to see it plead with her on twitter @LoveStaicey to release it.) In the meantime, have this picture of Davido, topless, in his hotel room from his personal instagram. Maybe Pendo took it # troll
So why did you do this? Do you do this for money?
Pendo: (Laughs) No, I didn’t get money from him. I didn’t WANT money from him. I did it simply cuz I find him hot and he is pretty legit in the music industry in Africa. Yeah, I am attracted by his talent, his fame, his power, but honestly, who isn’t? And people are talking so much because a lot of women wanted to be in my shoes, but were not. I’m not afraid to go after what I want. That’s just me. And I am unapologetic for it. I am content that I got what I wanted -which was to know him- and I guess it just naturally progressed from there…
So was this a one time thing then?
Pendo: No, I would do it again. Gladly. I don’t regret it at all.
Of course you know now I am gonna ask about the “D”. Free reign, choose your own words to describe it.
Pendo: He was perfect.
Nooooooooo, more than that. DESCRIPTION.
Pendo: (Laughing) Ok, ok. Errrrrrrrrrrm, he is much better than your “average Kenyan”. He is big. Both length and width. (Giggles) And best part is he REALLY knows what he is working with.
Haha, so you loved ALL OF HIM. (SN: Hehe, see what I did there?)
Pendo: (Giggles) Ha, you won’t let this go will you. Haha, no seriously though, he has CRAZY moves, he kept it fresh for a couple hours. I am impressed. Definitely the best…(hesitates) Ok maybe not the best I ever had, but he is up there.
So was this a one night stand or will you be seeing him again?
Pendo: Davido is not only a good lover but a gentleman. Not only did he not publicise the affair, but he left me with some personal mementos to remember him. I don’t think a one night stand does that. Plus there is still communication going on. I’m not saying we are dating, but we are definitely still talking. He did not “hit it and quit it”.
Watch this space to see if Pendo goes to visit Davido in Nigeria. A little birdie tells me that this may be a high possibility right now. And seriously, wouldn’t a Pendo/Davido dalliance be so Rihanna/ChrisBrown-esque (bad girls get the bad boys and they don’t give a damn.?
The two were kissing outside near the Jacuzzi when Angelo said Beverly smelled like smoke. Obviously she would be smelling of smoke from the cigarette she was smoking next to him but Angelo needed Beverly to understand that it’s not nice kissing a girl that smokes yet he doesn’t.
But when all that had subsided the two went into serious mode with their conversation straying from smoking to them pursuing their relationship in the outside world. Beverly said that Angelo terrifies her because she’s fallen in love with him so fast. “I try to deny that I love you because I’m thinking it’s too early to love you when I don’t know how you are in the outside world,” she said concerned.
Angelo understood where she was coming from but also had the same fears as Beverly did. “To be honest, I’m also kind of scared of knowing you on the outside,” he told her. But Beverly quickly defended herself saying she has told him everything about her and whatever he hears on the outside should not matter.
She then asked him a question he was all too happy to answer. “Can you marry a person like me?” she asked almost shy. Angelo didn’t hesitate to answer. “Yes, but would you marry someone like me?” he asked as well. She agreed saying that she would have no choice because she loves him. Is that wedding bells we hear?
Do you think Beverly and Angelo will tie the knot in the outside world?

"What is the point if I marry today and tomorrow it’s over? What’s the essence? I am living my life. I will have a baby when necessary. Marriage is good but what’s the essence of me getting married today and tomorrow I’m not in it? For any man I am going to marry or call my husband we should be together for five years before we walk down the aisle. We may have children but at least after five years I will know that you’re ready for me. Not getting married today, and tomorrow he’s out! I’ve seen it happen to my friends, I don’t want to go through that trauma."
Does dating a guy for five years guarantee that the marriage will last?
