71-year-old woman marries17-year-old teenage boy

A 71-year-old woman, Almeda Errell, got married to 17-year-old teenager, Gary Hardwick, just three weeks after she met him at the funeral of her 49 year old son. After a whirlwind three-week romance, the pensioner and the teenage boy tied the knots in a ceremony he arranged within six days for just about $200. The couple consummated their relationship for the first time on their wedding night.

Gary said:
“It was wonderful, beyond my wildest dreams,”. “She really is my dream woman and the physical side of our relationship couldn’t be better.” “It was the best ever.”
Almeda who is a supermarket assistant, agreed saying:
“I’d never had a connection like it before.” “I wasn’t looking for a young man, but Gary just came along,” said Almeda, a supermarket assistant. “I just knew straight away that he was the one.”

I’d been married to my first husband Donald for 43 years, and so when he died in 2013 after seven months in hospital from complications with diabetes, I found myself on my own,’ said Almeda. I’d turn up for work in tears and my colleagues would ask me what was wrong. Deep down, I was searching for a soulmate.

Gary, whose attraction to older women started with a crush on a teacher at the age of eight, said he had also been feeling trapped in an unhappy relationship with his 77-year-old lover.
“We were always fighting,’ said Gary. “I fell into depression and was looking for a way out.”
As soon as he broke up with his 77 year girlfriend, he went to confess his love for Almeda.
“It was an instant thing for me too,” said Gary. “She had the most gorgeous, sparkling blue eyes. When I told Lisa that I liked Almeda, she said that Almeda liked me too and that she should get us together.”
“Some family members thought Gary was far too young for me, and that I must be crazy,” said Almeda. “I told him I wasn’t crazy, and that we loved each other.”

new love3
Two weeks after their first date, Gary proposed to her on the phone and she had no hesitation in accepting it.
Six days later, Gary had hurriedly arranged everything cheap.
Almeda wore a dress borrowed from his cousin as they married in the gardens outside Lisa’s flat where they’d shared their first kiss.

Since their wedding in October, Gary has tattooed their names across his chest and the couple are now living in Almeda’s five-bedroom house, in Sevierville, Tennessee, USA with her daughter DeAnna, 40, and grandchildren Aaron, 21, and Indianna, 16.

Gary has also started working at another supermarket, but is applying for a transfer to the same one as Almeda’s so they can be together all the time.

new love

Gary said:
“Almeda is so young at heart that age never bothers us, we never really think about it. I just know that God answered my prayers that day she walked into my life.”

She added: ‘The one thing I’ve learnt is that when you truly love somebody, it really doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.”

mike jagger n boo

“This is great news. It will be Mick’s eighth child and nothing fazes him. He’s been incredibly supportive.
“She’s very bright, intelligent, sparky and has her own ideas about how she wants to lead her life. She knows what a great relationship Mick has with all of his children and can’t wait for him to be a dad again. “They are taking the news in their stride.”
However, Melanie who is from Connecticut in the US , reportedly won’t be moving to London to live with Mick when the baby is born, although sources say “he will love and support this child”.

Instead she is believed to be planning to move to either Los Angeles, where he spends a great deal of time, or back home to Connecticut to be near her family.

Jagger has seven children with four different women. Melanie Hamrick will be the 5th woman and this will be his eighth child but Melanie’s first.

Governor Ayo Fayose says he’s not moved by the EFCC ‘media trial’

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has said that he remained unmoved by the media trial adopted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) against him, saying “the anti-corruption agency and its collaborators in the All Progressives Congress (APC) should not be in a hurry in their ill-motive, rather they should wait till 2018 after my tenure when I will confront their lies.”
He said:
“The EFCC did more than this in 2006 but when I challenged their cooked up stories on poultry project in the court, the EFCC failed to substantiate all their allegations against me and their case crumbled like a pack of cards.”


Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said “the EFCC is at liberty to continue to use the APC media organs to feed the public with concocted stories all in an attempt to tarnish my image, cases are only won and lost in the court, not on the pages of newspapers. If they are sure of all their claims, can’t they just go to court?

ayo fayose

“If what the EFCC and its collaborators are now relying on is a driver or a source in EFCC that speaking for Zenith Bank, and not the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) that they claimed gave the former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro money to give me, goodluck to them.
“The EFCC and its spin doctors can continue to cook up stories and feed their collaborators in the media. The media trial can continue unabated, I am not moved. I am more focused, more resolute, I don’t lose battles. The one that they did in 2006 did not ultimately prevent me from having a second term as governor of Ekiti State and whatever they are doing now will also not stop me from handing over to a PDP governor in 2018.
“I will meet them in court and the whole world will again listen to their feeble stories as it‎ happened in poultry saga,” he said.
While reiterating his position that the EFCC was only carrying out the APC agenda to force him out of office or discredit him before the 2018 governorship election, the governor said the EFCC will be asked one day, why some politicians from Ekiti State now resume and close in EFCC offices in Lagos and Abuja and are the ones writing stories for publication in newspapers.
“When you read reports in their newspapers, the words and presentation are always the same and one wonders whether the two national dailies and the online medium they are using to spew their lies usually get their stories from the same source and the source even write the stories for them just for their reporters to put their names as bylines,” the governor said.

See how the shocking coup in Turkey failed but left many dead as civilians fight back in unison

At least 90 people were killed during overnight clashes in capital Ankara following an attempted coup in Turkey. Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said a new acting army chief of staff has been appointed after an attempted coup to topple the democratically elected government.

Turkish President Erdorgan has urged supporters to remain in public squares until situation returns to normal and has informed them that his govt. is still in charge.

He added that there is still a small disturbance in Ankara, hopefully it will be overcome soon, says Erdogan.

Defiant Turkish civilians were captured climbing on to tanks and yanking soldiers from their vehicles during the failed coup attempt by the nation’s armed forces.

coup turkey3

People across the capital of Ankara marched onto the streets to rise up against the army after the military intervention was staged earlier this evening.
President Erdogan had encouraged people to fight against the military planning the coup by saying:
‘They can come with their tanks and cannons and try to show what they can do, we can show the tanks who is powerful.’
“Those who are in this illegal act will pay the highest price,” he added, saying it would not be correct to describe the move as a “coup”.

coup turkey

In a shocking onlone video groups of Erdogan supporters were seen pulling soldiers from the turret of their tank and throwing them onto the ground as they chanted in support of the Premier. In another short clip groups of men were seen chanting at soldiers rolling through the streets of the Turkish capital in tanks.
During the coup attempt, some anti govt people had celebrated military intervention by gathering on the streets and waving Turkish flags. They said they were unhappy about the way President Erdorgan was leading the country towards an Islamic state and the way he tries to trample on religious freedom in the country. After entering the capital soldiers seized the weapons of police units near the presidential palace and there was shooting near the police HQ.

Hostages were apparently being held at the military headquarters in the capital Ankara. Military jets and helicopters circled overhead.

coup turkey1
However, Turkey’s military have claimed in a statement that they had taken ‘full control of government’ in order to protect human rights. They said government leaders had been detained and there were reports that the state broadcaster had been stormed.

‘Turkish armed forces have completely taken over the administration of the country to reinstate constitutional order, human rights and freedoms, the rule of law and the general security that was damaged,’ said the statement.

coup turkey4

Turkish state news agency reports a death toll of 90 dead people and 1,154 wounded in Turkey coup attempt . The report further states that nearly 1,563 soldiers at the military Headquarter surrendered and have been arrested by the Turkish Govt.

India’s ‘Gold man’ beaten to death at a party

An Indian businessman, Datta Phuge who made headlines in 2013 for buying one of the world’s most expensive shirts, a customised gold shirt worth 12.7 million rupees, around $240,000 dollars at the time, which was made entirely of gold has been beaten to death in western India, according to a report Friday.
It was made up of 14,000 pieces of 22-carat gold, weighed 3.32 kilogrammes (7.3 pounds) and was put together by 15 craftsmen over 16 days.

Phuge was a money lender from Pune in Maharashtra state and was nicknamed, “gold man”, a title he cherished.

Police said Phuge,was attacked and killed by 12 assailants brandishing stones and sharp weapons on Thursday night after one of the suspects invited him and his son to a birthday party, according to the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency.
According to local police inspector Navnath Ghogare:
“As per preliminary information, Phuge and his son were invited by one of the suspects, who know each other, to celebrate a birthday. However, we are investigating how Phuge reached the open ground where he was murdered.”

Phuge’s 22-year-old son witnessed his father being murdered and had been spared by the alleged killers, he added, saying that police suspected the motive could have been a dispute over a money transaction.

Four suspects have since been detained.

Phuge loved gold and the fame that came with his shirt.
“Everybody knows me as the ‘gold man’ in the whole region. Other rich people spend one crore (10 million rupees) to buy Audis or Mercedes, to buy what they like. What crime have I done? I just love gold,” he told AFP in 2013. “Gold has always been my passion since a young age. I’ve always worn gold as jewellery in the form of bracelets, rings, chains,” he added.

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan vows to make failed coup organisers ‘Pay’

Five army generals and 29 colonels have been arrested following the attempted military coup in Turkey last night where at least 90 people were killed. Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has vowed to deal with those behind the failed coup.

In a speech at Istanbul airport, Mr Erdoğan insisted his government remains in charge and has denounced the coup attempt as an “act of treason”

“What is being perpetrated is a treason and a rebellion. They will pay a heavy price.”

turkey president

“They have pointed the people’s guns against the people. The president, whom 52 percent of the people brought to power, is in charge. This government brought to power by the people, is in charge. They won’t succeed as long as we stand against them by risking everything.”

Adding to the top Military men arrested, more than 1,500 soldiers have also been arrested after army factions used tanks and helicopters to cause “a bloodbath on the streets”, killing dozens of innocent civilians.

President Erdogan was in the south-west holiday resort of Marmaris at the time of the attempted coup where he made a televised address, via his mobile phone, urging people to take to the streets to oppose the Military uprising.

He then flew on to Istanbul, saying Marmaris had been bombed after he left.

Top 5 reasons why Yoruba men marry Igbo ladies

Inter-tribal marriage in Nigeria is inevitable; it is near impossible for the people of a particular tribe in Nigeria not to marry outside that tribe.

Although, there are usually arguments and fights when couples marry out of their tribes; they are bound to face and experience enmity from their partners’ families. Despite all these, couples still find a way of sealing the gap between the torn families with their love. Yoruba and Igbo are two major tribes in Nigeria. Both are powerful and represent a large portion of the population. There is an interaction between them just like with any other tribe in Nigeria, However, when the issue of marriage comes into play they handle it with sentiments.

There are certain qualities possessed by ladies who are Igbo. Just like each tribe has its own peculiarities, there are some things that are synonymous to Igbo women. They are basically important things one has to know before marrying an Igbo woman. This would help the relationship to thrive well and would help them reduce the chances of getting divorced.

Yoruba men who fall in love with Igbo ladies must have seen some of these traits and qualities in the women before deciding to marry them. They know the battle they have to fight with that desire of theirs yet they are not discouraged. As liberal as a family could be, the members would always express their desire for their sons and daughters to marry within the clan or tribe. They would only accept the proposal in order not to ruin the happiness of their children. Find below some of the reasons why Yoruba men marry Igbo ladies:

igbo women

  • Igbo women are home-builders

Igbo women are extremely dedicated in marriage. Now there would always be a few stray ones like we have in other tribes too; but when it comes to the effort they put into marriages, those ladies are quite commendable. Marriage means a great deal to them and divorce is a word they do not really entertain. Yoruba men go for them because they see the prospects in them.

soup

  • They are excellent cooks

There are a number of leaves and vegetables that are being made into soups by the Igbo ladies. Most of them know how to cook and would feed a man until he cannot eat any longer. Yoruba men know that they would taste different types of vegetables when they are married to Igbo ladies. we all know the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

 

igbo wedding yoruba

  • Love knows no tribe

Some Yoruba men end up marrying Igbo ladies not because they had it planned out but because love happened. Love knows no tribe. At this point, they have no control over the person their hearts choose. Not giving in to love may subject them to a lifetime of unhappiness at the long run. Moreover, they do not marry these ladies by force, there is usually a strong mutual consent by the parties involved as it is essential for them to work as a unit in order to gain the support of their family members.

 

homebuilder

  • They are accommodating

Igbo people love having a full house; it is not strange finding uncles, aunties, nephews, cousins and distant relations spending holiday with them. Although they chat a lot, they enjoy good company. There are bad eggs among them too who have little or no tolerance for people. Yoruba men know that marrying Igbo ladies who are well cultured and behaved will help them keep their family members together. Over time, the family members may start to see the good in them and love them too.

 

nigerian

  • They belong to one Nigeria moreover African women are just hot stuff

Sometimes, men do not pay attention to tribal issues and condescending statements that may bring a tribe down. As far as they are concerned, the Igbo ladies are Nigerians like them too. For this reason, a Yoruba man could decide to choose his life partner from that tribe and live with her for the rest of his life. After all, marrying outside one’s tribe is not an offence that is punishable under law. As a matter of fact, it promotes cultural integration and helps the people of the country to bond better. It is interesting to know that there are people who think like this among us.

The case of the alleged human meat seller in Ghana is being investigated as police hunt for new accomplice

The Accra regional police have begun investigations to find the pastor who directed a market woman to sell human flesh at the Adabraka market.
This comes after the 60-year-old woman was nearly lynched at the Adabraka market in Accra Wednesday after she was accused of selling human flesh as meat.
The woman, whose name has been withheld by the police to protect her identity, was whisked away to the Adabraka Police Station by the Police and some good Samaritans after a teeming crowd had attempted to lynch her.


An eyewitness account at the scene indicated that the woman who was described as a ‘stranger,’ was found moving from one end of the market to the other with a big tray full of the meat that looked like the flesh of a human being.
Some of the traders immediately raised an alarm and within min­utes, other traders had besieged the area to catch a glimpse of her and the purported human flesh.
The roasted meat, which she carried in an aluminum pan, was scattered at some places in the market during the melee.

accra police
A few pieces of the meat were later retrieved by the Police after they had rescued the woman who claimed she was new in the fish and meat trading business.
The Accra Regional police PRO, ASP Afia Tenge said the woman stat­ed during interrogation that it was her pastor who gave her the spiritual direction to sell the meat in that market.
ASP Tenge said they have spoken to the woman’s husband and the butcher from whom she bought the meat.
The Police say when they spoke to her husband, he said he was unaware of any pastor directing his wife to sell anything like that.
She said investigations are still ongoing and the Police are yet to ascertain if indeed what the woman was selling was human meat.

Maybe due to the situation of things in Nigeria, we are used to seeing frustrated individuals in certain departments and sectors. We always expect some weird looking officer to answer us when we make enquiries. In fact if I was guy i would let this hot woman teach me a lesson.

When stunning and curvy ladies walk into a gathering, the Nigerian mentality would tell you she is either a model or some coming up actress. However, this beautiful Nigerian female firefighter broke the internet by sharing amazing pictures of herself. Her profession is one of the things that intrigue us as we keep wondering how lovely she would be when carrying out her duty.

Firefighters are heroes in the society; they should be appreciated more for the effort they put in savaging situations. This young lady has won the hearts of people on social medias. They simply cannot get enough of her. Even a male friend of mine said he could set his house on fire just to have this beauty put it out for him, lol, check our her hot pictures a you read on…

Police arrests widow accused of using secondary school students as sex-workers in Lagos

The Lagos state Police command yesterday paraded Chinonso Okolokwo, who is alleged to engage young secondary school female students in prostitution in the state. According to the Lagos state police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, Chinonso, who hails from Ebonyi state, goes to different secondary schools in the Surulere area in Lagos state within school hours to lure female students between 12 to 15 years of age to a hotel.

Okolokwo, according to the CP, would give the students clothes to change into, take them to hotels where they meet men, who sleep with them. She would then pay them between N1,000 and N2,000, depending on the number of men they attended to.

human trafficking1

“Detectives arrested her on Wednesday. Her mode of operation is to target some secondary schools in the area. She, together with her cohorts, would go to the schools and get the girls to a hotel. The hotel is located in Ikate, Surulere. She would change their clothes and use them as sex slaves. She would keep the girls in the hotel until the school closing time and make them change back into their uniforms. Investigation is still ongoing, and we will extend it to the hotel and the schools which are involved. We want to see whether there is connivance between the suspect and the school authorities.”he said

human trafficking

When interrogated, the suspect said she is a widow and mother of four. According to her, she took to prostitution after the death of her husband
“I do not know anything about the schoolgirls. I am also a ‘hustler’ at Sunderland Hotel. I took to prostitution after the death of my husband 11 years ago. I have four children, but two died before my husband. I lodged at the hotel for a week or two before going home to take care of my children with the proceeds. Several girls from Abuja and other parts of the country come there to hustle as well. Police raided the hotel and arrested me. I am not connected with what they alleged.”she said

Theresa May, Melaye and the leader’s wife – Written by Reuben Abati

Read this interesting article written by Reuben Abati below…

“Have you been to Bourdillon? Or rather I should ask when are you going to Bourdillon?”
“What’s happening?”
“I hear people are paying solidarity visits to the Tinubus to express their dismay over Senator Dino Melaye’s assault on Senator Remi Tinubu, wife of the APC National Leader.”
“Assault?”
“That is precisely what it is. Assault. Sexual harassment. Abuse. Threat of rape. Definite expression of intent to commit adultery and impregnate another man’s wife.”
“I read that story. I still find it difficult to believe that a distinguished Senator would descend to such level. If that is the quality of reasoning among Nigerian parliamentarians, then the country is in more serious trouble than anyone could ever imagine.”
“Dino Melaye has not denied the statements he allegedly made. And the Tinubu camp is on an offensive against him. I read a response saying if he carries out his threat, things will happen.”

tinubu dino

“Things should not only happen, I think every member of the National Assembly should undergo a psychiatrist test and a drug test.”
“Ha. You can’t conscript the entire National Assembly to undertake tests that are not required by law. And you can’t jump from something one Senator did to cast innuendo on other lawmakers.”
“You call it innuendo? You try. From the look of things, male members of this National Assembly are convinced that women are sex objects. Is this not the same National Assembly where male chauvinists resisted a Gender Equality Bill? Is it not in this same parliament that supposedly distinguished men stood up to defend marriage to the girl-child? And now you have a Senator threatening to beat up a female colleague, rape, impregnate her and that nothing will happen.”
“The man practically admitted his love of violence and lack of respect for a colleague. That is too much of an insult to the Madam and her husband.”
“I read on Sahara Reporters that he eventually changed his mind, though”
“How?”
“Sahara Reporters says he later told Mrs Tinubu, “F…. you.”
“F…. another man’s wife?”
“Yes. But he said worse. He reportedly said he would not even demean himself by impregnating a Bonga fish, and that he would prefer a robust woman like Senator Stella Oduah.”
“What? The scallywag wants to hold so-so-so-me-thing!”
“He has not denied saying so.”
“But are you sure there isn’t a Nollywood wing in that Senate and some of the members are rehearsing a block-buster home video?”
“Which home video? The altercation took place at a closed-door meeting of the Senate. Mrs Tinubu’s offence was that he criticized Senator Melaye’s contribution to a discussion, and the fellow became enraged. He had to be physically restrained from actually beating up the woman, and proceeding there and then to rape and impregnate her with immediate effect”
“Chei. I wish I were in Asiwaju Tinubu’s shoes…”
“What will you do? You will invite Melaye to a physical combat? Have you seen the guy’s biceps and how heavily built he is? This is not a matter you settle with muscles.”
“Meaning?”
“There are sub-texts. Dino is probably fighting proxy war. His target may not be the woman but her husband. Besides, the guy seems to have quite a reputation for beating up women. Ask his first wife. Ask his second wife.”
“Mrs Tinubu should sue him”
“He will claim privilege. Every communication on the floor of the Senate is privileged.”
“What privilege? That privilege should not cover anyone threatening violence, rape, assault and adultery. What if he was not restrained, he would have slapped Mrs. Tinubu or what? I also find the silence of the Senate leadership in this matter terribly offensive. By now, Senator Melaye should be standing before a Disciplinary Committee.”
“But again, is this whole story possible?”
“What will the Tinubus gain from lying against Melaye?”
“You know, for some reason, I sympathize with that fellow, you know. What he has done, previously and right now, is very much like riding the Tiger. “
“Certain kinds of persons should not be in the National assembly to start with. Is it not from this same National Assembly that the US Embassy named and shamed some lawmakers who went to the US on a sponsored trip to solicit for sex, with one of them almost raping a hotel attendant? This thing called democracy must be protected from women abusers, rapists and adulterers.”
“If this was in the US or the UK, by now, there will be protesters on the streets calling for Melaye’s head and seat. His constituents would have initiated the process of his recall.”
“Have you also not noticed that other female members of the National assembly have not spoken up. They are dangerously silent.”
“That is stupid. Do they want to be beaten up? Raped? And impregnated by violent colleagues? Are they happy that a male colleague is threatening to rape and impregnate?”.
“To call another man’s wife, Bonga fish. And openly say you prefer that other female Senator as a sex object. That Melaye needs help, I must say. Where is he from?”
“Right now, I wonder what Dino Melaye would have called Theresa May, the new Prime Minister of Britain”
“Do not go there. He wouldn’t dare. The kind of nonsense behaviour that is allowed in the name of lawmaking and leadership in this country is impossible in civilized places. Can you ever imagine any parliamentarian in the UK openly abusing a female colleague and threatening to rape and impregnate her?”
“All these our leaders, they love titles but not the responsibility that comes with high office. Just look at how the British have managed a major transition in the life of their nation, it was all done so decently.”
“Impressive. Classically British. The country is more important than every one.”
“David Cameron leads the country out of the European Union against his personal wish and to economic disaster. He takes responsibility and he steps aside.”
“In Nigeria, he would have stayed on. After all, there was no election. Nobody resigns here. Public office for the average Nigerian is about stomach infrastructure.”
“But in the UK, it is about service. Did you read Cameron’s valedictory speech? Solid. No malice. No regrets. The other week, he was down with rotten eggs on his face, but two days ago, he left office with his head held high. The British system works. When things go wrong, there are ways of dealing with them.”
“We shouldn’t compare apples and oranges. We can talk about lessons, but not to expect the same standards.”
“Look at Theresa May, the new PM. The very day she assumed office, she named her cabinet. She is prepared. She is ready. She is competent. That is how to hit the ground running. Here, State Governors spend a whole year struggling to appoint ordinary commissioners.”
“State Governors? What of…?”
“Meshionu… Alakoba somebody. It is not from my mouth that you will hear about physical, social psychological and existential violence in high places. But look again at what Theresa May has done. She has appointed into her cabinet, the Brexiteers, the same people who wanted Britain out of the EU. She has put together a cabinet that accommodates her rivals to show that she nurses no malice against anyone. Can you imagine Boris Johnson becoming Foreign Secretary?”
“I don’t support that.”
“Sorry, your opinion does not matter. Ko mata, ko muyo.”
“Boris Johnson is an isolationist. And he doesn’t like Africans.”
“He loves Britain, his country. That is what matters.”
“I wish the new Prime Minister well, then. History made. She has Mrs Margaret Thatcher’s record to contend with.”
“No. You miss the point. She will not be judged on the grounds of gender.”
“Don’t fool yourself about that very point. Even in the UK, gender is an issue. Nobody talked about Cameron’s shoes or navy suits, for example. But since Theresa May arrived, there has been so much obsession with her clothes and leopard print kitten heels.”
“But she is lucky she doesn’t have a Dino Melaye around her.”
“Impossible.”
“And nobody will ever threaten to beat her up, rape her or impregnate her.”
“Why are you DinoMelaye-ing Theresa May? Can you stop? This is precisely why a Boris Johnson thinks you people should be kept out of Britain, so that in the long run you don’t pollute the decent space the British created over the centuries.”
“You know, to tell the truth, sometimes I wonder how foreigners manage to relate with us. Can you imagine the President of Nigeria going on a foreign trip, with a Senator who was once accused of rape, or a Governor who was once a crook? The civilized oyinbo people will shake hands, shake their heads also, but privately among themselves, they would wonder if it would not have been better if they didn’t colonize Africa at all.”
“And leave us in our natural, pre-colonial states, eh?. I can’t laugh oh. May be if they didn’t, by now you will be a dreadful dibia in a forest, with 100 wives.”
“And Dino?”
“That one? He will be a deep forest hunter, beating up people’s wives, raping and impregnating them and threatening that nothing will happen to him.”
“Only in Nigeria.”
“ I guess there is a lot more that you can talk about in that manner.”
“Like Abia”
“Really messy out there.”
“A court of law with competent jurisdiction rules, INEC complies, but the politicians insist they have a different opinion, and the entire system gets sucked into a crisis.”
“Don’t go there. You get that kind of situation when everything in a country is so uncertain.”
“But if we lose the courts, what do we have left?”
“We lost the courts already, even the lawyers.”
“In Abia or Abuja?”
“You answer the question yourself”.
“And the video that the US Mission was going to show at the House of Representatives? Did that happen?
“Which video? It didn’t happen.”
“Never mind. The British have just given us an answer. A country must work for its people. That is why Theresa May says her mission is to make Britain work for every one.”
“Nigeria must also work for every one, not a privileged few.”
“Yes. Yes. Yes. We should add that line to the National Anthem.”
“Hmm. Seriously.”

Nice attack – The terror and the aftermath of the terrorist attack in France leaves many dead and families heartbroken

At least 77 people have been killed and 100 injured in Nice, France at the late hours of Thursday the 14th of July when a gun-man driving a truck started shooting into the crowd of people celebrating the Bastille Day (French Independence day) national holiday. An eye witness said he got out of the truck and started shooting at people, got back into the truck and plowed into the crowd killing several more people. The truck on Thursday night rammed into the crowd on the Promenade des Anglais seaside walk in the centre of town. At least 100 were wounded in the attack.

Another eyewitness said:
“I was enjoying the Bastille Day fireworks just like thousands of other people at the promenade in Nice,” he said. “I was just walking back after the fireworks had finished. I looked towards the truck and I thought it was a bit odd, because the roads were shut down and there were hundreds perhaps thousands of people walking along. “But then from the direction of the truck, I started hearing screaming and then people started running. And so I joined all those people in running away from there.”
The driver drove for over 2km plowing into people in his way. Eyewitnesses said he drove 30 to 40 miles per hour into the crowd.

The driver was eventually killed by the Police squad. The truck was said to be loaded with arms and grenades.

French anti terror investigators are currently investigating the incident
