Robots that humans can have Sex with would be hitting the market come 2017

I don die, ​there are reports that sex robots with fully functioning genitalia are set to hit the market next year and will cost up to £12,000. The next generation of dolls are likely to be hyper realistic with features never seen before.

They will have built-in heaters which so they have genuine body warmth and sensors that can react to touch. Founder Matt McMullen said:

“I want to have people actually develop an emotional attachment to not only the robot but the actual character behind it to develop some kind of love for this being.”

Levy, author of Love And Sex With Robots, said:

“I’ve no doubt some will find it creepy, but the arrival of sexually responsive robots will have enormous consequences.

We have already seen rapid changes in human relationships thanks to the internet, mobile devices and social media. 

The next major advance will enable us to use our technology to have intimate encounters with the technology itself to fall in love with the technology,to have sex with robots and to marry them.”

Chai, God help us in this world , have they developed a cure for cancer? No. . . Aids nko ? No but here they can create Sex robots , smh. Anyway what do you think , would you like to buy this in 2017?

Furious President Buhari orders investigation into the IDP molestation claims

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered an investigation into an allegation of ‘sexual abuse and exploitation’ at the camps of internally displaced persons in the northeastern part of Nigeria.

The President made this directive sequel to a report on Monday by the Human Rights Watch (HRW) who alleged that women and girls were being sexually exploited by security officials.

“President Muhammadu Buhari is worried and shocked by the recently released Human Rights Watch (HRW) report which alleges sexual abuse and exploitation of women and girls in camps for those displaced by the Boko Haram insurgency,” Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, said in a statement on Monday.

“The welfare of these most vulnerable of Nigerian citizens has been a priority of his government. Nigerians and the international community can rest assured that the allegations raised in the HRW are not being taken lightly.

“President Buhari has instructed the inspector general of police and the state governors of the affected states to immediately commence investigations into the issue. Their findings will determine the next course of action for the government and define an appropriate response.

“While the Nigerian military continues to work hard so that these unfortunate victims of Boko Haram terrorism can soon return safely to their homes, the government will do its best to ensure their protection and welfare in the temporary IDP camps.”

Embattled former National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki to call former president Ebele Jonathan as witness in the arms deal case

Former National Security Adviser (NSA) Sambo Dasuki, who is currently on trial for alleged mismanagement of $2.1 billion arms funds, says he intends to invite former President Goodluck Jonathan as his witness.
Jonathan has in the past condemned the charges against Dasuki, claiming that there is no way the ex-NSA could have stolen about $2.2billion funds for arms.

Dr. Jonathan said:
“We bought warships, we bought aircraft, we bought lots of weapons for the army,” he said in a recent interview at the Oxford Union in the United Kingdom.
Speaking with The Nation correspondent, Mr. Ahmed Raji (SAN), the ex-NSA’s counsel, said Dasuki wanted Jonathan to testify in court on his behalf.
Raji said:dasuki
“It will be desirable for Jonathan to testify for the ex-NSA. It will throw greater light into grey areas. And it will serve the interest of Justice. It will be fantastic for him to go to court to testify. Dasuki is an agent of a disclosed and known principal.”
Another member of Dasuki’s legal team said:
“With what Jonathan said in London, the only logical thing for him to do is to see it through.
“We want Jonathan to follow-through. If he backs out, it will be bad.” But, in Raji’s view, a political solution will be better than trial because of the “characters involved”. He said: “But, frankly speaking, I pray for a political solution to the problem because of the characters involved.xx
“Both the accused and the government should embrace a political solution to the problem.”
When asked if Dasuki was ready to proffer a political solution, he answered:
“Why not? He is. He added:
”I believe the President is very sincere. He wants to reorganise Nigeria and he deserves the support of all.
“With a political solution, Mr. President will be in good stead to overcome unnecessary distractions in order to succeed. “I pray that everybody will key into his vision and the economic challenges facing the nation.” Those point of advising a political solution is that it will not be “tidy” for Dasuki to mention all those who got money from his office. Among them, said a source, are a prominent traditional ruler in the North, who reportedly got N500 million and a former Head of State. A source, who spoke in confidence, said Dasuki’s defence team was banking on Jonathan’s testimony. The source said: “All is set for the defence of Dasuki, who is still insisting on an open trial to let Nigerians know the beneficiaries of the arms cash.
“One of those who may testify is ex-President Goodluck Jonathan whose remarks in London appeared to be the first phase of the war chest of the ex-NSA.
“You know the ex-NSA said he acted on Jonathan’s instructions in disbursing some of the cash. And from the look of things, the ex-President is now ready to accept responsibility for whatever Dasuki did.
“We believe it has reached a level that Nigerians must know what really happened, how funds were disbursed and who got what. “This is why a secret trial is not a viable option, with the way things are going.”
“So far, we have secured the consent of Jonathan to appear in court for Dasuki. This will make the trial worth it.”
Dasuki had on December 13, 2015 said he disbursed the funds on Jonathan’s instructions.

The ex-NSA said:
“I wish to state as follows: That I have been publicly indicted and any statement may jeopardise my defence. Having been briefed by the EFCC investigators on why I was invited, I will answer the charges in court. As such, I do not wish to make any further statement on the matter.
“That I am aware in November (I cannot remember the exact date), my office requested the CBN to exchange N10billion from the account of the Office of National Security Adviser domiciled in CBN. The money was exchanged at $47m and some Euros which I cannot remember. The exact amount was delivered at my residence.
“The money was for delegates that attended the nomination convention for the PDP. Presidential nomination. The money was paid and sent to Hon. (Waripamowei) Dudafa (SSAP Household) and ADC(C-I-C) for distribution on the instruction of the President.
“Based on the statement of Director of Finance and Administration (Salisu), Ibrahim Wambai, and Yazidu Ibrahim, all the cash (both foreign and local) are usually given to them for official use. “I also noted the statement of Sagir Bafarawa whose company is Dalhatu Investment in which he stated that he received the sum of N4,633,000,000 from the account of the Office of the NSA. I authorised the payment . The money was for vehicles, motorcycles for youth empowerment and women sent to Saudi Arabia. I got the proposal from the President. I do not have the proposal; it should be at the office in the Villa.”

Igbos are bad in politics – Ex-Abia governor, Kalu

Former Abia state governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, has lamented that the Igbos are bad in politics, despite being good in commerce and in every other thing they do.

Speaking in the latest edition of The Interview, the former governor stated that elites of the South East region are not only selfish, but get their political calculations wrong.

He declared that if the former governor of Lagos state, Babatunde Fashola was an Igbo man, he would have openly challenged his predecessor who is a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu.

Kalu made the remark while reacting to the frosty relationship between him and the person who succeeded him as Abia governor, Senator Theodore Orji.

According to Kalu, “Igbos are their own worst enemies.

“Let me tell you, there were more problems between (Asiwaju Bola) Tinubu and (Babatunde) Fashola than there were between me and TA Orji, but it is the discipline of the Yorubas that kept them at bay.

“Igbos have no discipline in terms of politics. They are very good traders; they’re good in anything they do, but they don’t understand politics.”

Kalu is facing a 34 count charge bordering on money laundering as he was on Monday re-arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,  at a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos.

Shehu of Borno’s son weds Emir of Daura’s daughter

An uncle of the daughter of the Emir of Daura, Hajia Nafisatu Umau Farouk Umar, who got married to the son of the Shehu of Borno on Saturday, has described the marriage as unprecedented in the history of Daura.

The wedding took place one day after Fatima, President Muhammadu Buhari’s second daughter wedded in Daura, Katsina state.

The uncle, Alhaji Lawal Aminu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Daura that between 500 and 1000 people came from Borno to Daura to witness the occasion.

He said that the father of the groom, the Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Abubakar Ibn Umar Garbai Al-Amin El-Kanemi and the mother both came and stayed in Daura for three days for the wedding.

According to him, that development, where both father and mother travel to another town to attend the wedding of their son, is a novelty in Hausaland and unprecedented

He said the marriage had opened a new chapter of cordial relationship and brotherhood between the people of Daura and those of Borno.

Aminu said that in his over 66 years, he had never seen a marriage that had attracted so many people to the ancient town of Daura like that marriage..

Many people who spoke to NAN also shared the same view that attendance at the marriage was unprecedented.

According to the Cigari of Daura, also a son-in-law of the emir, apart from the people of Borno who came in large number, other people from different walks of life, including Niger Republic, attended the wedding.

He prayed to Allah to bless the wedding and the couple with prosperity and obedient children.

Similarly, Malam Aminu Shehu, a resident of Daura, said he could not count the number of important dignitaries that attended the wedding.

NAN reports that, the marriage, between Nafisa and Abba, was presided over by the Chief Imam of Daura, Alhaji Safiyanu Yusuf, at 12,30pm on Saturday, Oct. 29 at the Emir of Daura’s palace.

The marriage is likened to what Bayajida, the son of the King of Baghdad, capital of Iraq, did when he came to Borno from Baghdad and ended up in Daura where he married Daurama, he Queen of Daura hundreds of years ago.

Historically, Daura is believed to be the origin of the Hausa states and occupies a very important position in the history of Northern Nigeria.

Among the dignitaries that witnessed the ceremony yesterday were the governors of Katsina and Bauchi states, Aminu Masari and Mohammed Abubakar respectively, among many others.

The high point of the occasion was the staging of a mini durbar in the evening by the groom, his friends, members of the Daura royal family and well-wishers to bring to an end the occasion.

The bride had been taken to her husband’s house in Maiduguri from Daura on Sunday.

“I Don’t Feel Betrayed By Iyanya’s Move To Mavin Records” – Ubi Franklin Says

Earlier today, News broke that singer, Iyanya, has signed a new record deal with Don Jazzy’s Mavin records.

His former manager/business partner, Ubi Franklin, who spoke exclusively with Linda Ikejis Blog (LIB),on the new record deal, said he couldn’t be happier for Iyanya.

Read his interview below:

Q: News broke this morning that your former partner, Iyanya has signed onto Don Jazzy’s music label, Mavin Records. We would love to know your stance and reaction to this?

I’m happy for Iyanya. The truth is that, if you are happy for somebody, God will be happy with you and you will be happy with yourself. I don’t have anything against him.

This is music business and everything you do – as far your music is right and you are making the music for the world, it doesn’t depend on the label that you are in for all to enjoy it. I’m happy he is where great music comes out from, a label with one of the best music producers in Africa. I’m so happy for him, today is his birthday and I wish him all the best.

Q: Iyanya informed everyone initially that he was going to start up his own label. This has however changed. Do you feel betrayed?

We are all human beings; today Iyanya is 30 by age. As a 30-year-old man, you are able to take any decision on your own, you can change your mind, you can do whatever you want to do. The most important thing is that from what I’ve seen, trust me he is happy. Nobody takes a decision that is going to be bad for him.. I still know he still has his own plans for his Label. But at this point, I know Iyanya is where good music comes from.

Q: So you don’t feel betrayed?

No No! The only way I will feel betrayed is if there was something he owed me and he didn’t give back to me, but there is nothing like that. I’m happy for him.

Q: Do you see any more collaborations between your team and Iyanya in the future?

That’s the funny thing about music, everything is possible. When you see people in music having issues, just leave them, the wheel goes round, if you check my snapchat, I’m always dancing to his music. There might be a future collaboration, I’m open to anything. I’m a business man, there is nothing we are fighting for.

Lesbian sex tape scandal: ‘There’s no sex video, it was an orgy & I’m pregnant now’ – alleged lesbian lover Drea cries out

Hmm and the discussion continues, The alleged ‘lesbian lover’ in the alleged sex tape with City FM intern Gracia – Drea has revealed that at no point did Omini threaten Gracia, that it’s either Gracia was just scared or she wanted publicity.

According to Drea, who also works in a media firm, she’s not happy with the way the whole issue has escalated as her job is on the line and her fiancĂ© who she’s pregnant for, has been seriously disturbed by the news. Speaking to a blog exclusively, Drea revealed that it was a long time ago the sex act happened, that they were a ‘group of guys and girls’ and she’s changed from that kind of life now.

Drea, who was alleged to be the one who engaged in the lesbian act and shot the lesbian video with Gracia said to LIB:

‘We’ve been friends for like a while, three of us, me, Gracia and Omini. The girl in question happens to be like my old time friend’
Now truth is i don’t know why all this came from or started from’
‘I just got a call from her yesterday and she checked my messages on whatsapp, this girl hasn’t called me for over 8 years, so i was like this one she’s calling me right now, what’s up?’
‘So i gave her my other number and she called me back and said she needed to talk to me that infact lets chat on whatsapp, she sent me messages that this guy is asking her stuffs he’s trying to blackmail her over a sex video that we made’
‘I was shocked and dumbfounded because first thing first ‘there was no sex video!’

LIB: But she said there was a sex video….

Drea: Exactly the problem i have with her! There is no sex video at all. There is nothing. What we did was just a couple of girls and guys in the room having fun (orgy) and everybody is just there.

LIB: It wasn’t just the both of you?

Drea: No! and when we were done with recording ourselves, ok we had fun watching ourselves we deleted the video instantly. I was the person recording the video, I deleted it.
‘So there’s no way Omini will say he has a video, the same thing i told her’ If Omini says he has videos of you he should come out and show us, that’s what i told her. If there’s any video it’s from you, cause even at that particular point in time that we were together in that same party all the guys in that video have traveled abroad. We didn’t even know Omini’

‘Omini was not in the picture so then how can Omini now say he has a sex video’ She said she’s shocked oh’ ‘I now said my sister i don’t have anything of yours that’s sexual against you and there’s nothing like a sex video please try and resolve with Omini’

At that time my line was buzzing, it was Omini calling me, I said ok fine while you are still on line let me pick Omini’s call lets do a conference call together. Omini confront this girl here and now, but that didn’t work’ the conference call didn’t hold due to network issues’ But later Omini called me and asked me Drea did you give me any video?, then i asked Omini did i ever ever in my entire life tell you about any sex video?’

‘I also munched Omini’s chat because this thing later on will spoil my own character, am also a media person, seriously my job is also on the line’
I don’t know what’s happening, i munched his chats, i didn’t reply him because i don’t have anything against him, neither do i have anything against Gracia’

‘Haven’t spoken to her in 8 years and all of a sudden, this thing happened- if Omini is threatening you first things first where are the messages that Omini sent to you?’
‘She said her phone where the messages were got wiped off, do you know that as i’m talking to you right now Omini is sending her messages that Drea is trying to play her.’

LIB: Did you see any munched messages of Omini threatening to blackmail her?

Drea: She didn’t show me any of the messages..

LIB: So she did it out of fear ?

Drea: What she told me was that she was scared Omini will release the video which i told her there’s no video from Omini or from me, from any other person i don’t know oh..’

LIB: Did she do this for fame? To help her acting career?
Drea: That is what i don’t know because she’s not that kind of girl, she’s a good girl.
I was on air when Omini called me, after i finished my program i called Omini back. He said they are in the police station and i told him let me be clear and i also recorded my conversation with him ‘I don’t know anything about any video, me and you never made any video, i did not give you any video or picture, so please leave me out of this’

‘They are already spoiling my character because they’ve tagged me as a lesbian, which i am not, i am engaged’

‘And right now my guy is also aware of this thing he’s been calling my phone 24/7 asking me what’s happening (Sobs)
I don’t know what’s happening, i can’t concentrate on my work anymore’

(sobs) The whole story, i don’t even know who’s lying. I told her in the first place, babe if you have a problem you don’t need to go online and tell the whole story’
‘Someone has come to use my past to blackmail me, i was once a club personality, i do events, i hype, people have come to blackmail me and if you blackmail me i tell people who are supposed to be aware of it, not go online’
‘ I told her take it down, don’t put that up, be sure of it, she said no oh i don’t want to spoil my career, because right now i cannot say Omini is lying or Gracia is lying, i don’t know them anymore’ ‘It’s been long we saw ourselves, people change!
‘I have changed, i’m not that kind of party person like before, i have a relationship, i’m pregnant for my fiancĂ©’
‘Am supposed to get married and all this things are coming out?!

As at press time Gracia has deleted all her IG posts where she alleged Ominiaho threatened her with the sex tape and had also made her Instagram account private.

100 million Nigerians living in poverty – Dangote

The President, Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, has said that more than 100 million out of the country’s estimated population of 187 million are wallowing in poverty.

He told participants at the Executive Course No. 38, 2016 of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, Kuru, near Jos, Plateau State, that the situation was unacceptable to him given Nigeria’s abundant resources, according to a statement made available on Sunday.

Delivering a paper entitled: ‘Promotion of local manufacturing and poverty reduction in Nigeria: The private sector experience and policy options’, he said, “It is a curious paradox that Nigeria, Africa’s largest oil producer, and the largest economy on the continent, also has one of the highest levels of poverty.

“It is estimated that more than 100 million out of a population of 187 million Nigerians live below the poverty line.”

Quoting a United Nations report, Dangote said youth unemployment had risen to 42 per cent this year, with many graduates roaming the streets of major cities such as Lagos, Kano, Abuja and Port Harcourt in search of elusive white-collar jobs, while for some who were employed, their situation could best be described as under-employment, as they were being underutilised and poorly paid.

This development, according to him, has serious security implications, as evidenced by the high rate of social ills plaguing the nation.

“The spate of kidnappings, intermittent vandalism of petroleum pipelines in the Niger Delta, and the protracted insurgency in the North-East are all fuelled, to a large extent, by the high level of endemic poverty in the country,” he stated.

Dangote pointed out that the current economic recession had further worsened the situation, as the government continued to record dwindling revenues, thus making it increasingly difficult for it to fulfil some of its obligations to the people.

He said, “Coupled with this, the activities of insurgents in the North-East have also affected the level of poverty in that part of the country. It is estimated that there are over 2.4 million Internally Displaced Persons in the region. It will take billions of naira to rebuild the North-East and fully re-settle the victims of the insurgency.”

Man jumps into river, while avoiding policemen in Ogun

A 31-year-old man, identified as Gafar Ajibola, has reportedly jumped into a river in Oniyanrin town in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, and drowned, as he tried to escape from policemen during a raid.

The victim was washing his clothes at the back of the river, when he heard gunshots from policemen, who were allegedly raiding the community.

It was reported that he jumped into the river out of fear.

The police had entered Oniyanrin community close to Agbeloba in Abeokuta, in the early hours of Saturday, to clear some criminal hideouts.

The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, while confirming the incident, noted that the policemen were carrying out their constitutional duties, chasing hoodlums in the area and not the deceased.

He added, however, that investigation is ongoing to unravel the culpability or otherwise of the policemen in question, adding that they were just on routine operational duty of providing residents with adequate security.

According to him, “The information I got is to the effect that policemen had gone to raid criminals’ hideouts. There are places around that area known for harbouring criminals. So police usually go there to raid.

“Some people were arrested and after investigation, they were released. It is surprising that somebody jumped into the river when the police were performing their duties in the area.

“The case is under investigation, but police were in that place to ensure safety of lives and properties. The Police Commissioner, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered an investigation into the matter.

“I am assuring you, if police officers are found culpable, the law will take its course. Police are there basically to carry out their duties.”

K1 and Sefiu Alao Ended Their 2-year Fight In Abeokuta

The long standing cold war between two of Nigeria’s fuji musicians King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal (K1) and Alhaji (Dr.) Sefiu Alao (Agbara Orin) may have ended.

For those who don’t know, their beef started a while back when Sefiu Alao released a live video CD titled ‘Oba Mewa‘ where he analysed the origin of the endless conflicts among Fuji artistes and went ahead to call out the name of K1 as one of the major architects of the fights.

The move infuriated K1 who has since ignored and stayed away from Sefiu, until now.

That’s after the duo ran into each other at the wedding ceremony of one of their big mutual fan, Sulaiman Omidina otherwise called Sule Yoboro‘s daughter’s wedding in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Friday October 28, 2016.

The society wedding which took place in an expansive marquee within Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) had K1 as the artiste on the band stand, while Sefiu Alao was there as a long-time friend of the bride’s father.

Mourinho could face stadium ban after being sent to the stands against Burnley

The Portuguese manager may be banned for the second time in two seasons as The FA will decide whether they may have had enough of his antics

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho faces two games away from the touchline as the FA decides whether to hand him his second ban in two seasons, according to the Daily Star

Already facing a charge of improper conduct due to comments made about referee Anthony Taylor before the 0-0 draw at Anfield two weeks ago, the FA could examine his past record.

And the newspaper reports that they may extend the ban, meaning he would miss Sunday’s trip to Wales to face Swansea, as well as the game against Arsenal on November 19.

Mourinho was sent to the stands not long before half time in United’s frustrating 0-0 draw with Burnley, after protesting furiously against referee Mark Clattenburg’s refusal to give a penalty when Jon Flanagan felled Matteo Darmian in the area.

The 53-year-old was banned for one game and fined £40,000 last year as Chelsea manager after arguing with referee John Moss at a game at West Ham.

He was almost banned again for comments about referees after a defeat by Southamption last October, but the sentence was suspended for 12 months.

A sentence that meant he narrowly escaped an automatic ban by just eight days after being charged for his recent comments about Anthony Taylor.

United’s 0-0 draw left them in eight place, eight points adrift of joint leaders Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool.

-Spare me the problem of social media, don’t upload my messages,” Pastor Adeboye begs members .

Weeks after getting dragged on social media for advising his male church members not to marry a woman who can’t cook or pray for one hour, Pastor E.A Adeboye, the G.O of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has begged youths of the church to stop uploading his videos or quoting him on social media, Naij reports.

He said this in order for him to be spared the torrents of backlash such uploaded posts may attract from millions of social media users. Speaking during a youth program, he pleaded with the participants to spare him the problem of social media by not uploading the program’s video on YouTube.

He was quoted as saying: “Spare me the problem. I’m not talking to you so that you can put me on YouTube.”

Saudi-led airstrike on Yemen prison leaves many dead and twice as much injured

  • Saudi-Led Airstrikes on Yemen Prison Kill at Least 60

The number dead from a Saudi-led coalition airstrike on a prison complex in western Yemen has risen to 58, security officials have said.

Abdel-Rahman al-Mansab, a security chief of the district of al-Zaydiya in the Red Sea port of Hodeida, said most of the dead in Saturday’s airstrike were prisoners. They were among a total of 115 prisoners who were serving jail terms for minor crimes or who were in pre-trial detention.


The city is under the control of Yemen’s Shia Houthi rebels, who seized the capital and much of the northern region in 2014. The Houthi takeover has forced the internationally recognised government to flee the country and request military intervention by neighbouring Gulf states, which have conducted an extensive air campaign in Yemen since March last year.

The conflict has left more than 10,000 people dead and injured and displaced nearly 3 million Yemenis while pushing the Arab world’s poorest nation to the brink of famine.

Rights groups have accused the coalition of systematically carrying out attacks on civilians. On Sunday, the Saudi-led coalition said the prison complex was used as a command centre for Houthis.

Mansab denied that, saying it was a “civilian” site and added that the complex came under three airstrikes that killed the prisoners along with rescuers who came to help the injured. He said there were still bodies under the rubble.

Yemeni officials said at least 20 of the victims were anti-Houthi political detainees who were rounded up over suspicions of co-operating with the coalition.

Mansab said that the complex has two prisons, one for women and one for men, but there were no female prisoners at the time of the attack. “When I went there, I saw a pile-up of charred bodies beyond recognition. They were burned to death,” he said.

A medical official said nearly 60 other bodies were transferred to the military hospital in the city, suggesting that some of the victims were security personnel. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to the press.

Hodeida is one of Yemen’s most impoverished cities. The Saudi-led coalition has repeatedly targeted its port, under the pretext that it is being used by Houthis to smuggle weapons.

The port serves the northern region, including the Houthi-controlled capital, Sana’a. The bombing of the port and a naval and air blockade imposed by the coalition have contributed to the increasing rate of food insecurity in Yemen, which imports 90% of its food.

A woman and two children found dead in a Danish freezer

Danish police said on Monday they found the bodies of a slain Syrian refugee and her two young daughters in a freezer in their apartment, as they launched a manhunt for the girls’ father.

The bodies of the 27-year-old mother and her seven and nine-year-old daughters were found inside a freezer in their apartment in the southern Danish town of Aabenraa after a concerned relative had not heard from them for days.

“Police went into the apartment and found the three bodies in a freezer,” local police said in a statement.

“The victim’s husband and the father of the two children was not in the apartment, and we are actively searching for him,” the statement added.
The Syrian family arrived in Denmark in 2015 and were granted refugee status.

The Scandinavian nation welcomed 21,000 migrants in 2015. The influx has significantly slowed since Denmark re-established border controls in early 2016.
