Girl badly beaten by boyfriend shares her story & photos of her injury on instagram!!

Her name is Gabriella. Says she's an aspiring Victoria Secret model and actress. Not sure where she's from though. Gabriella, via her instagram account @bambiiiii_ shared her recent sad experience of domestic violence from her boyfriend of eight months. She was badly beaten, thrown from a moving vehicle and dragged. She shared this photo of her injury above on her instagram page and wrote:

"This might be a little graphic but I just want to let everyone know that I am okay. I am a survivor of domestic violence with a boy I dated for 8 months. I really thought everything was fine but he constantly questioned me about cheating and flirting. Nonsense. I never looked at someone the way he looked at me. Thought I loved this boy. How can someone that 'loves' me do this to me? The scars on my chest are way worse and extend down to my right nipple, completely scarred. The skin on my shoulder has been completely skinned. And I have bruising on my rib cage, neck, and my muscles. I was kicked out of a moving vehicle, then beaten and dragged, as I blacked out and was left lying there in my own puddle of blood. Doctors said I could have died if not made it when I did. I am so blessed and beyond lucky to be alive and have so much support from friends, family, and strangers. As I try to recover I ask to please keep me in your prayers. I have to wear a neck brace for 3-4 weeks, an arm cast and I can barely walk for now. Thank you for all the love. I hope to be an inspiration to women and anyone involved in domestic violence.
She didn't say what happened to the guy that did this. See pics of Gabby before the brutal attack after the cut ...

Nigerian Pregnant Woman Jailed For Cannabis Trafficking

Justice Mohammed Yunusa of Nigeria’s Federal High Court Lagos on Wednesday sentenced a 28-year-old pregnant woman, Saudat Wasiu, to three months in jail for drug trafficking.
Pregnant Woman Jailed For Cannabis Trafficking
The woman however has a few days to spend in jail as the sentence would run from the day of her arrest, which was 4 December.
The judge sentenced the convict after she pleaded guilty to a count charge of dealing in about 3.9 kilogrammes of Cannabis Sativa, also known as Indian hemp.
Before the sentence, the woman pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy.
She said she had no one to run to, since she had been deserted by her entire family members, praying the court to be liberal with the sentence.
Justice Yunusa said the sentence should commence from Dec. 4, 2013, when she was arrested.
“The convict is hereby sentenced to three months imprisonment, which date is to start running from the time of arrest.
The convict is therefore, cautioned and advised to desist from crime in her interest and the interest of the society at large,” he said.
The Prosecutor, Mr Jerry Aernan, had told the court that Saudat was arrested by officers of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on 4 December 2013 at NNPC area of Ejigbo.
He said that about 3.9 kg of the narcotic drug was found in Saudat’s possession which she concealed in a white sack.
According to the prosecutor, the offence contravenes the provisions of Section 11 (c) of the NDLEA Act, Cap N30, Laws of the Federation, 2004.

Finally the popular nollywood star shows us how to french inhale.....lool


Dear MTN,
I write this letter with so much pain.
On January 1 2012, GEJ Government took Nigerians by surprise on New Year Day with their fuel subsidy wahala. Little did we know that you guys were jealous of the attention we gave them.

On January 4 2014, I gave a recharge card vendor a #200 note in exchange for #200 worth of MTN airtime but she returned the money to me saying I will need to balance her extra #20. I walked up to another vendor and the same thing happened. On further investigations, I found out that you, MTN had topped an additional #10 to your #100, #200, and #400 airtime packages.
We have been told by MTN that the cost of those tools they have been using in torturing has risen and as such, we should pay extra #10 to make up for this.

I'm tempted to ask, why the sudden price increment? To rid off customers? To offer us good service? Or is MTN broke? Are you not the one that gave out an invisible aeroplane to an eighteen year old female subscriber a year ago thereby converting her from a studen to a pilot? Are you not the one that usually give two million naira to lucky subscribers daily IF and ONLY IF he/she will text WIN to 33314? Are you not the one that gave CHRISTY a Toyota Camry because she texted YES to 7070? Are you not the one that gave OGECHI a Honda four weeks ago because she texted WIN to 5050?

What of the #100 that was deducted from my sim and that of other innocent subscribers after MTN informed us via SMS that Nigeria's flag is green, white, gree? Are you not the one that offered us #400 airtime (though your terrible network didn't let us utilise the airtime before you took it back from us two days after) free of charge because we updated our sim registration details?

Last year, I was walked out of an examination hall by the supervisors because my phone rang. One missed call from 180. Those yellows guys have hypnotised me. I can't count the number of times I've gone to a mobile shop to get another line but walked out after 30 minutes with another MTN sim. I gave it all. The 0803, the 0806, the 0703, the 0706, the 0813, and the 0810 numbers.

MTN were the first to send me a new year SMS. They had me googling if I mistakenly killed late Nelson Mandela. (My number had not rested coz I refused to subscribed for Mandela's callertunes). I wake up every morning with a good morning SMS from MTN N informing me of my chance to win One Million Naira before the day is over. I go to bed every night with my good night SMS from MTN N informing me that I may not have been lucky today but tomorrow is another day.

Finally, why didn't you ask for my approval before the #10 subsidy issue? Some of you may be thinking that am jobless because of my 800 words article just because of #10. If #10 is taken out of your One Million Naira, would you still be called a millionaire?

But finally MTN has been fucking up.
Yours sincerely,
Nigeria OO

PHOTO: Two Arrested With A Human Head

Police in Afienya, Ghana, have arrested two persons on the Akosombo-Tema Highway for allegedly possessing human skull.
Photo: Two Ghanaian men arrested with a skull of a human
The two culprits, Simon Yovou, 34, fetish priest and Thomas Dodzie Nodzi, 38, unemployed, both residents of Afienya, were transporting the skull from Agortime Wudome in the Volta Region to Kumasi, when they were detained by the police.
The human part had been sent to the Forensic Laboratory for further confirmation.
Superintendent Kwesi Ofori, Dodowa District Police Commander confirmed the arrest.
Upon reaching a section of the Akosombo-Tema Highway near Afienya, the bus was reportedly stopped by the police, and a snap check conducted on the passengers in the vehicle revealed the skull hidden in Simon’s bag.
The police later got viable information from Simon, which led to the arrest of Thomas.
The police interrogation revealed that the skull was to be delivered to a certain Dzabaku, a fetish priest at Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
Superintendent Ofori further added that efforts by the Agortime Police and the Dodowa District Police to locate where the suspects got the skull from proved futile, as they failed to divulge any information to the police.

Chinese boss smashes bottle on employee's head in Ogun state( Photo)

The State Criminal Investigation Department, Eleweran, Ogun State, has 
detained two Chinese nationals, Mike Jackson and Tony Jackson, for 
allegedly brutalising Adeleke Owolabi, an employee of their company, 
Jivan Plastic Company.
 Owolabi, a graduate of Mass Communications from Olabisi Onabanjo 
University, was beaten black and blue by the suspects on his first day 
at work after a disagreement with Mike.Owolabi had said the police 
refused to arrest the Chinese men due to their status as foreigners.

However, it was learnt that after PUNCH Metro’spublication, the 
police immediately stormed the PVC manufacturing company in 
Sagamu and whisked the suspects away.
It was learnt that the suspects apologised to Owolabi, who was also 
at the SCID to write a statement.
Owolabi said,
 “Yes, the Chinese men have been detained at the SCID and  
I am satisfied with the action of the police so far. I am happy 
that the media are helping to ensure that the matter is not swept 
under the carpet.
“I am not after money but I just don’t want a situation 
whereby Nigerians are treated badly by foreigners in their 
own land.”
It was learnt that the suspects would remain in police custody 
until the completion of investigation.
Owolabi had said,
“I was bringing out PVC materials out of a bag and Mike 
said I was not handling the materials properly. He kicked 
me and slapped me repeatedly so I held unto his shirt to 
prevent him from beating me further.
“However, his cousin, Tony, smashed a bottle on my head 
and they beat me until I fainted and woke up on the way to 
Makun Police Division covered in blood.”
Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, who confirmed 
the arrest of the Chinese men, promised that justice would prevail.
“The matter is at the SCID and we are compiling the case files. 
We want to assure members of the public that justice will prevail,”

BOKO HARAM: 2,000 People Turned Into Refugees in Nigeria

More than 2,000 people were forced from their homes after a market attack in northeast Nigeria blamed on Boko Haram militants that killed at least 52, a relief agency said Thursday.
BOKO HARAM: 2,000 People Turned Into Refugees in Nigeria
Boko Haram church attack
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) in the region said 4,000 people were “affected” by Sunday’s attack in Kawuri village, Borno state, without giving further detail.
NEMA spokesman Abdulkadir Ibrahim said that in addition “over 2,000 internally displaced people (IDPs) are camped in” a college and primary school in Konduga district.
“Security arrangements are being made to convey relief materials like food, beddings and basic needs to cushion the effects of the displacement of the IDPs,” he added in a statement.
The attack, at about 5:00 pm (1600 GMT), saw heavily armed gunmen disguised as traders storm the village, which is 37 kilometres from the state capital, Maiduguri.
Witnesses said the gunmen arrived in four-wheel-drive vehicles and opened fire with machine guns before setting off homemade bombs that destroyed houses and other property.
Borno state police told AFP on Tuesday that 52 people had died, although local officials and the leader of the civilian vigilante group in the area said they had buried 85.
The attack came on the same day that at least 26 people were killed when suspected Boko Haram gunmen fired on worshippers during a service at a Roman Catholic church in neighbouring Adamawa state.
Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states were placed under emergency rule in May last year to try to end the insurgency, which has claimed thousands of lives since 2009.
Attacks have continued, most of them in rural areas of Borno, which borders Cameroon and Chad to the northeast and east, and Niger to the north.
The United Nations said last Friday that 4,000 people had fled northeast Nigeria to Cameroon and 1,500 to Niger since mid-January, both as a result of the insurgency and the military response to it.
More than 12,400 Nigerians are currently in Cameroon; 8,000 have fled to Niger with 30,000 Niger nationals who had been living in Nigeria.

Public smokers risk 6-month jail term in Lagos!!

The Lagos State House of Assembly, yesterday, passed a bill, aimed at banning smoking in public places in the state.
This came after several months of deliberation and public engagement, mainly to sensitise and gather residents� opinions on the bill.
The 16-section bill, said that posting of signs which states �no smoking,� with a picture depicting a burning cigarette enclosed in a circle with a bar across, should be displayed in all �no smoking areas.�
The assembly noted that the picture depicting ban of smoking in a particular public place would be prominently posted and properly maintained by the owner, occupier or person in charge of the �no smoking areas.�
The bill, which, yesterday, scaled through the third reading, prohibited anybody smoking in all public places including libraries, museum, public toilets, schools, hospital, day care centres, public transportation and restaurants, among others.
The assembly proceeding which was presided over by the Speaker, Mr. Adeyemi Ikuforiji, said smoking in public places would attract penalties ranging from three month imprisonment to six month jail term.
It said the bill �has been sent to Governor Babatunde Fashola� for an assent,� even though the development had attracted public outrage, citing infraction on fundamental human rights.
Section 4 of the bill said it shall be the duty of those who own or occupy public places to ensure that approved �no smoking� signs are displayed conspicuously at each entrance and in prominent locations throughout the premises.
The bill on no smoking in public places, also stated the penalties for smoking in a �no smoking area� will be N10,000 fine or imprisonment for a term not� less than one month and not exceeding three months or both.
While any person who repeatedly violates the provisions shall on conviction be liable to a fine of N50, 000 or six month imprisonment or both.
The law also states the penalty for non compliance by owner/occupier of a �no smoking area� the offenders shall attract N100, 000 or 6 month imprisonment, or other non custodial punishment that the judge may deem fit.
It shall be an offence to obstruct a duly authorised officer from carrying out his duties under the provision of this law.
The law states that any person who smokes in the presence of a child commits an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a fine of N15,000 or imprisonment for a month or both.

Jonathan Sneaks Budget? N30millions for Phantom Aircraft, Boats in Foreign Embassies

Jonathan Sneaks Budget? N30millions for Phantom Aircraft, Boats in Foreign Embassies
The 2014 budget presented to the National Assembly by President Goodluck Jonathan last week contains fraudulent request for funds.
In what clearly appears a ploy by officials to brazenly steal public funds, the Federal Government is asking the National Assembly to approve about N30million which it purportedly plans to spend on fueling aircraft and boats owned by Nigerian embassies abroad.
The fraudulent request is coming when government officials know that none of Nigeria’s foreign mission owns a plane or boat.
Details of the 2014 Federal Budget presented last week by the Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, to the National Assembly on behalf of President Goodluck Jonathan, revealed that the foreign affairs ministry is asking for about N30million to cater for these phantom expenditures.
Officials claim Nigeria’s foreign missions in Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Ethiopia, Algeria, and Mali would need an average of N1.785million each to fuel aircraft, and another N2.381million each to fuel boats during the year.
Similar provisions, concealed under the general fuel and lubricants subheads, were made for the embassies in Turkey, Lebanon, and United Arab Emirate, UAE.
The budget for the mission in Mali also has ludicrous demands for aircraft maintenance cost (N638,365); boat maintenance cost (N635,435), and railway equipment maintenance cost (N999,8240).
When released, these funds will simply go into the pockets of corrupt officials since the embassy does not own aircraft or boat and has no railway line to maintain.
The spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ogbole Odeh, said in a telephone interview in Abuja on Tuesday that the provision for aircraft fuel cost in the budget for the foreign missions was strange, as the federal government does not maintain aircraft in any of its embassies abroad.
“Aircraft fuelling cost? This sounds strange to me. I have never heard of such,” Mr. Odeh said, in response to an enquiry. “What is normal is motor vehicle or generator fuelling costs. To the best of my knowledge, none of the Nigerian Missions abroad maintains an aircraft. Or what purpose is the railway equipment maintenance supposed to serve? I don’t know. It sounds ridiculous.”
This is not the first time when fraudulent fund requests smuggled into budgets by corrupt officials have been uncovered.

GRAPHIC PHOTO: Gay Man Burned Alive In Uganda Days After Anti-gay Bill Was Passed Into Law!

Uganda recently signed a bill that further bans homosexuality. According to CNN, a man was burned to death for being gay shortly after.
The bill's original 2009 version, named "Kill The Gays," went as far as calling for the death penalty for certain homosexual acts; that provision was shelved following international furore.
Under its latest iteration, anyone who conducts marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples faces seven years behind bars. Failure to report homosexual activity to police is also criminalized. Doctors who treat gays, landlords who rent them property and those suspected of being gay are subject to five-year prison terms under the bill.
Anyone who offers support to homosexuals will also be committing a criminal offence, which can reportedly extend to counselling.
Though homosexuality has already been illegal in the South-east African nation, some argued this bill needed to be passed to safeguard against Western values.

Christmas Tragedy Occurs In Lagos And Cross River States

It was a bloody Christmas celebration in Lagos and Cross River states as no fewer than nine persons were killed in auto accidents on Tuesday night and on Wednesday morning.

Five people comprising a baby, her mother, two brothers and a driver died on Wednesday in the Lagos State accident, while four youths died in the Cross River accident.
In Lagos, our correspondent learnt that apart from the five people that perished on Christmas day, another lady suffered a fracture after a container which was on an articulated truck fell on a commercial bus on Alaba Suru Road in the Ajeromi-Ifelodun area of Lagos.
Eyewitnesses said the baby, her mother, the two brothers and the bus driver, who were victims of the accident, were returning from the Lagos Island.
It was said the two brothers went to purchase bangers for the New Year celebration
The crash was said to have been caused by a mentally unstable woman, who laid in the middle of the road, thereby creating confusion for the truck driver who was on top speed.
Eyewitnesses told PUNCH Metro that the yellow LT bus, with number plate, MUS-975-XC, had also stopped by the side of the road to drop off a passenger, which precipitated the accident.
A resident, Mohammed Wasiu, said, “The incident happened around 8.30am. I saw the mad woman walking around this morning. She just decided to sleep on the road at that time.
“The LT bus was going towards Mile 2. There were about eight people in the bus. The driver decided to stop because someone wanted to get down from the bus.
“As this was going on, the truck was coming on full speed. There were two trucks; one was already ahead, so the second truck driver wanted to catch up.
“When he got to that point and saw the mad woman on the road, he wanted to avoid crushing her. As he maneuvered the truck, its side hit the bus, and the container fell on the bus.”
Wasiu said residents immediately rushed to the scene and began to cut the vehicle with saws in order to save the occupants who were in pain.
Another eyewitness, who did not identify himself, said, “The two brothers who were at the back of the bus were trapped. They had packs of bangers that they just bought. The woman, who wore a shawl, and was carrying a baby, could not also escape. They all died, including the driver.
“It was only a lady that was at the entrance to the door that escaped with a fracture.”
After the accident, angry residents were said to have seized the mentally unstable lady and beaten her up. Some of the residents said it was the second time she would trigger such accident. She was, however, rescued by policemen.
At the rescue operation scene were officials of the National Emergency Management Agency, Federal Road Safety Corps, Lagos State Traffic Management Agency, policemen, and the Lagos State Emergency Medical Services.
The NEMA spokesperson, South-West Zone, Ibrahim Farinloye said, “The incident happened at 8.30am, but we were not alerted till around 11.46am. NEMA was able to mobilise other rescue officials to the scene. At the end of the rescue operation, a woman and her baby with two men died, while a lady was rescued alive. She however had a fractured leg. The corpses have been taken to a mortuary in Oshodi.”
The police Public Relations Officer, Lagos State, Ngozi Braide, said she would call back to give details on the accident.
In Cross River, four youths were on Tuesday killed, while several others were injured after a Mercedes Benz 911 truck rammed into them by the road side at the Akamkpa area of the Calabar-Ikom highway.
The incident, which occurred around the state’s college of education in Awi, Akamkpa Local Government Area, left the community in mourning.
PUNCH Metro gathered on Wednesday that the truck with number plate, Lagos FKJ 505 XC, was immediately burnt by angry mob, while the driver, Chidi Duruba, and the truck conductor, Edwin Oragunye, were thoroughly beaten up.
Two of the injured persons are Blessing Etim and Okechukwu Mbaka. The whereabouts of the six other injured persons could not be immediately ascertained.
An eyewitness, Ekam Emmanuel, said, “About 6am on Tuesday, some youths from Mbarakom community decided to go for a road walk along the Calabar-Ikom highway.
“A Mercedes Benz 911 truck with the number plate, FKJ 505 XC rammed into them from behind and the incident claimed four lives on the spot while several others were injured.
“This incident happened at 6am when I came to clean my shop. I met the youths jogging on the highway but suddenly a truck coming from Calabar on high speed climbed on the four that died on the spot.
“As a result of the tragedy, the Mbarakom youths got angry, the truck driver and his conducter were almost killed when they stopped to see what had happened. They were seriously beaten up, while the truck was set ablaze.”

Emmanuel said another truck, marked Cross River, KAM 45 XA, was also forcefully stopped by the angry mob and set ablaze. He added that the driver escaped being lynched.
She said the anger continued as the youths further burnt another oncoming Audi 80 commercial car, adding that the intervention of the combined team of military and police patrol teams brought the situation under control.
A police officer in the Akamkpa division, Eric Bassey, who is of the traffic department, confirmed the report. He said, “The DPO got an early morning distress call that there was a riot going on in Awi. He immediately gave us orders and on getting to the scene we discovered that three vehicles were burnt and some casualties were there.
“The casualties included some dead bodies, while several others, who sustained injuries, were taken to the hospital for medical attention.
“We were informed that the driver and the conductor of the truck that caused the accident were being held hostage at Mbarakom. We acted swiftly, but discovered that they had been beaten up badly. We rescued them and took them to the General Hospital at Akamkpa where they are still receiving treatment.”
He said peace had been restored in the troubled community.
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Hogan Bassey, confirmed the incident, adding that the police had been able to bring the situation under control.

On Tuesday, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan congratulated Nigerians, especially Christians, who celebrate Christmas.
Acting on President's behalf, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati said the President joined Christians and all other Nigerians in giving thanks to God whose grace and benevolence has helped the nation to overcome the many challenges it has faced since last year.

"It remains my sincere belief that no height of human accomplishment is beyond us as a nation, if we can overcome our differences, such as they are, and forge a binding national consensus to put the progress and well-being of the country above all other considerations," the statement by the President said.
He promised to do everything within his powers to ensure that participants at the planned national conference make significant contributions towards national peace, unity and progress.
The President expressed belief that the conference would contribute to the resolution of contentious issues currently hindering the nation's progress.

FG Spends N360bn on 51,247 Workers' Benefits
The Federal Government said on December 24, 2013, Tuesday, it had spent more than N360 billion on the payment of severance benefits to workers of the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN).
Mr. Benjamin Dikki, the Director-General, Bureau of Public Enterprise (BPE), confirmed it in an interview to newsmen in Abuja.
He stated that the payment was in accordance with the agreement to settle the severance benefits to the affected workers.
According to Mr. Dikki, at the beginning of the privatization process, the budgeted cost for the settlement of labour liabilities in the sector was put at N401 billion.
“The BPE contributed N315.6 billion from the sale of PHCN asset, while the Federal Government provides N45 billion to bring the amount so far remitted to more than N360 billion.
“It would be recalled that the federal government had demonstrated great commitment in resolving labour issues in the power sector reform and privatization.
“From the beginning, it had committed the entire proceeds realised from the sales of the power assets to the payment of the worker’s terminal benefits.
“The N360 billion so far spent was forwarded to the office of the Accountant-General of the Federation to settle 51,247 PHCN Staff, both active and retired,” he said.
The DG of BPE further noted that of the 51,247 workers – 47,913 were active staff, and 3,334 were retired staff of the company.

"Why I converted to Islam' - former actress Vivian Metchie opens up

Recently divorced Nollywood actress Vivian Metchie says she recently adopted the Islamic faith because she found the Christian faith too confusing. Speaking with Yes! magazine on her conversion, Ms Metchie said it was a personal decision she had to take...
"Yeah it is personal. I understand the Koran more than the bible. All of a sudden, the Christian confusion was driving me nuts. My dad was catholic, my mum was Deeper Life, I married someone in the Redeemed Church and then all of a sudden, the few religions had something bad to say about each other. I just couldn't take it anymore. A friend of mine who is close to me said that once you are grounded on the word, it wont be confusing. Unfortunately, maybe I wasn't grounded in the word, but I still could see what I see. But in my quest and study and research, I don't know: I was probably looking for peace. Yeah! That was what I was looking for and I found it in the Koran".
The mother of 4 who has adopted Fareedah as her muslim name says her decision was well received and respected by her dad who has since stopped calling her by her native name and now calls her Fareedah.

Plane that broke down on Abuja runway was carrying bulletproof cars!

The Saudi Arabian plane that broke down on the runway of the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport on the 4th of December leading to the closure of the airport for over 20 hours was carrying 5 set of bulletproof cars weighing 58 tonnes and another set of five bullet proof cars weighing 42 tonnes, according to the Saudi Arabian Embassy. 

In a bid to clear the air, the Embassy released a press release stating the content and who owned them. The statement in part reads 
“The goods were a portion of a supply contract for 10 bullet-proof cars to a government agency in Nigeria, which were to be conveyed from Sharjah (UAE) via Abuja, through Fast Forward Cargo US UAC, to Defence Industries of Nigeria (DICON), 45 Ahmadu Bello Way, Kaduna, through the company’s contact person: Mr Nwajpudu Livinston/CCC. The goods were manufactured in South Africa.”
The aircraft broke down at about 9.19 pm on the runway immediately it landed. Security officials and agencies have kept mum on the issue since the incident happened.

 May his soul rest in peace...amen.
