Woman Killed In Accident In Lagos, Hours Before Traveling To America

Some people don’t know the need when you advise them to live right, until ‘something’ happens. We are in a world that anything can happen, at any time. Don’t get carried away!

A woman who was supposed to travel abroad today (Thursday) has tragically lost her life after she was hit by a speeding car.

She was killed in an early morning auto crash resulting from reckless driving in Lagos.

The Lagos Emergency Management Agency said that the accident occurred at about 2.30am around the Stadium Bus Stop in Surulere, Lagos.

The General Manager of LASEMA, Mr. Adesina Tiamiyu, said in his report that:
“A distress call was received via the state emergency Number 767/112 on Thursday, 19th January, 2017 at about 2.03 a.m. regarding an accident at Stadium Bus Stop inward Alaka Surulere.

“This prompted the immediate activation of the Agency’s Emergency Response Team to the scene of the incident.

“Preliminary investigation conducted by the agency’s team at the scene revealed that a black Camry car with Federal Capital Territory registration number, KUJ 412 AA ran into s slow moving trailer with registration number EKY 668 XL and loaded with granite.

“The immediate cause of the incident was attributed to reckless driving and speeding by the Camry car driver, who didn’t notice the slow moving truck driving inward Stadium Bus stop.

“He lost control and crashed into the truck.’’

According to Tiamiyu, a passerby who witnessed the accident says the yet to be identified lady, a middle age woman, was billed to travel to the U.S. on Thursday.

However, the driver of the Camry car, who was extricated from the mangled car by the Agency ERT sustained injuries and has been taken to the trauma centre by the Lagos State Ambulance Service officials.

Tiamiyu expressed dismay that officials of the agency who were at the scene for rescue were attacked by some youths during the rescue operation.

NAN reports that the Nigeria Police will carry out further investigation on the incident.

Finance minister, CBN gov explains way out of recession

The minister for finance, Kemi Adeosun and CBN Gov, Godwin Emefiele have revealed ways and plans of getting Nigeria out of economic recession.

The two made this known on Thursday in Abuja while speaking at the 14th Daily Trust Dialogue which had “Beyond recession: Towards a Resilient Economy” as theme.

Adeosun, said inability of Federal Government to generate enough revenue to meet its obligation left it with no choice than to borrow to finance critical projects.

She said that with a huge monthly personnel expenditure of N210 billion and debt service burden of N120 billion, it was difficult to generate enough revenue to meet the obligations and fund capital projects.

While many people have faulted the borrowing plan of the government which seeks to borrow 29.9 billion dollars from foreign sources, Adeosun said Nigeria must get the loan if it must survive the economic crisis.

“My requirement every month – salaries, statutory transfers – every month, I need N210 billion.

“Debt, not the debt that we are planning to take but inherited debt, I need N120 billion just to service it. So every month I need N330 billion.

“Now for FAAC (Federation Accounts Allocation Committee), shared between Federal, States and Local Government, I require without capital budget, just recurrent is N700 billion."

Adeosun lamented that had the country adopted the steps being taken now to reduce expenditure through efficiency in spending when oil price was about 110 dollars per barrel, the country could not have slipped into recession.

For a more prudent management of government revenues, she said that the ministry planned to have in future, a holistic budget, capturing all the revenue generating agencies, especially CBN, NDIC and NNPC.

“We are also trying to ensure compliance with the Fiscal Responsibility Act. The agencies that are still outside of government, their size of revenue is actually more than the federal budget.

“In fact, IMF did a survey which shows that it’s 120 per cent, the size of our entire budget.

“So in other words, there is a parallel budget sitting outside the budget. The CBN, NDIC and NNPC; they sit outside the budget and we need to bring them in.

“They have to become more accountable and so we are working on that.

“The National Assembly has given us the support of ensuring that if these agencies do not submit their budget, they will not be able to pay anything other than salaries.

“These agencies were set up to be revenue generating for the government but they have become revenue generating for themselves; we need that money to come back into the central budget,” she said.

Adeosun also said that the Federal Government was going to clear all backlog of payments owed to its contractors, going forward.

She attributed the high rate of non-performing loans in the banking industry to the huge contract sums owed by government to its contractors that had collected loans to finance these contracts.

“So, we are working with the CBN to issue a promissory note to clear the backlog. When we clear the backlog then we start afresh.

“If you get a government contract, these are your payment terms, and that will also give us lower pricing.

“What we have discovered is that because people feel that there is a risk that they may not be paid, they load the price of the contract,” she said.

In his presentation, CBN Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, said that providing the much-needed foreign exchange to the manufacturing sector and financing agriculture reforms would continue to be a priority of the bank.

“In the midst of low oil prices, heavily depleted reserves, what can we do? We can only but manage the limited resources and that is why we will continue to do our best.

“Our priority today would be Nigerian masses, Nigerians and no other person. Within the limited resources at our disposal, we will continue to give emphasis to those who want to import raw materials.

“We will give emphasis to those who want to deploy plants and equipment that will help this country.

“We will direct support and emphasis to those who are going into agriculture, who are importing agricultural raw materials and implements because we love our country,” he said.

Also, Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said that diversification was still an important element in re-inflating the economy.

“Our future does not lie in the rising oil price but in the capacity we have for discipline, for planning and to actually look at the economy no longer from a mono-cultural perspective but from a diversified perspective.

“It is interesting to know that that oil is responsible for about 90 to 95 per cent of our foreign earnings, yet it produces less than 10 per cent employment.

“So, the take-away is that there is no substitute in a modern economy for diversification, because diversification is what will help us grow our income and create a better middle class,” he said.

Beware! Bats now feed on human blood - Study reveals

A new study published in December in the journal Acta Chiropterologica and first reported in New Scientist finds that the bats have started to feed on human blood, something scientists didn't even think was possible.

As people have started to move into the Caatinga dry forests of northeastern Brazil, they've been cutting down trees and hunting the tinamou and guan birds these bats would normally drain for a meal.

So a group of researchers from the Universidade Federal de Pernambuco in Recife, Brazil, decided to test the bats' feces to see what they'd been eating as their normal meal sources disappeared, thinking they may have decided to turn to the animals that humans bring with them.

The authors of the study write that they wanted to know "how the species would behave in a situation of scarcity of wild birds and increase in the availability of domestic animals."

DNA analysis showed they'd been consuming chicken blood — not a big surprise. But it also showed that the bats had been preying on humans.

"We were quite surprised," Enrico Bernard, who led the study, told Sandrine Ceurstemont of New Scientist. "This species isn't adapted to feed on the blood of mammals."

Ceurstemont writes that the bats "are adapted to process fat, the main component of bird blood, as opposed to the thicker, high-protein blood of mammals."

As a dietary change, this isn't just creepy. Bats have a remarkable capacity to carry viruses that can be deadly to humans. In northeast Brazil, similar cases have led to rabies outbreaks in the past.

In 2005, deforestation and human movement led another sort of vampire bat (pictured above) to bite more than 1,000 people, infecting a number with rabies and causing at least 23 deaths.

The hairy-legged vampire bat has been known to carry the deadly hantavirus, according to New Scientist.

Big Breaking News: Police suspect Pakistan's spy agency ISI hand in two rail accidents in Uttar Pradesh

Two major train accidents near Kanpur which resulted in deaths of 151 passengers and injuries to 200 others, were carried out on the instructions of Pakistan's external spy agency ISI, according to the Bihar police.

The ISI hand was exposed following the arrest of three criminals Umashankar Patel, Motilal Paswan and Mukesh Yadav from Motihari on the Indo-Nepal border who were working at the instance of an ISI agent, a Nepalese citizen based in Dubai.
NIA official said...
"Our team of investigators are in touch with the local police and will examine the disclosures made by the arrested accused. If our preliminary conclusions vet the ISI-link theory, there is a possibility of NIA taking over the investigation,"
 Those involved in the plot could have killed many more if they had succeeded in derailing a passenger train by setting off an explosion on a rail track. Also, a major train accident was foiled on January 1 by the railway patrolling staff, who detected that 50 elastic rail clips and three pairs of fishplates were removed and deliberate damage caused by a hacksaw on the track between Kalyanpur and Mandhana stations in the Farrukhabad-Kanpur Anwarganj section.

Railways has already asked CBI to inquire into the incident which happened a day before Prime Minister Narendra Modi was scheduled to address a political rally in Lucknow.

"Fortunately, the bomb at Ghorasahan was detected with the help of villagers and defused," Rana said about the attempt by the trio to cause an accident in East Champaran district of Bihar on October 1 last year.

Passengers of the Indore-Patna Express were not so lucky. At least 151 were killed when the train flew off the track on November 21 last year. Just over a month later, more than 50 people were injured when Ajmer-Sealdah Express derailed, again near Kanpur, on December 28.

Rana said the trio had received around Rs 3 lakh till now from Brij Kishore Giri for engineering train accidents. Brij is a Nepali citizen. He along with Shambhu Giri and Mujahir Ansari was arrested by Nepal police recently. "The Nepal police have shared vital information with us regarding their ISI links," Rana said, adding that the state ATS (anti-terrorism squad) and other security agencies have been informed about their confession. RPF is also in touch with the Bihar police and is coordinating efforts to reach the bottom of the conspiracy.

Rana said Motilal was earlier a Maoist operating in Adapur block of East Champaran district. "Umashankar has at least four criminals cases against him while 12 cases are lodged against Motilal and Mukesh," the SP said, adding investigations were on to gather information on the main handler of the gang.

Gambia's president Jammeh declares state of emergency

With just two days left in office, Gambia's President, Yahya Jammeh has declared a national state of emergency.

The announcement of the state of emergency is coming hours after Gambia's ministers for finance, foreign affairs, trade and the environment resigned from Jammeh's government.
Just in: Gambia's president Jammeh declares a state of emergency

Jammeh in a national TV address on Tuesday, January 17, said that the 90-day measure was necessary because of "the unprecedented and extraordinary amount of foreign interference" in a December 1 presidential vote, which he lost to opposition leader Adama Barrow.

The former coup leader also cited external interference "the internal affairs of The Gambia and the unwarranted hostile atmosphere threatening the sovereignty, peace, security and stability of the country".

The state of emergency bans "acts of disobdience" and "acts intended to disturb public order".

According to Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque, "The decision to declare a state of emergency was taken by the national parliament that convened secretly."

"What this means is that all land, sea and air borders will be shut down. Gambia, as of right now, is effectively on lockdown."

Jammeh who has ruled the small West African country since 1994, initially conceded defeat but a week later contested the poll's results stating irregularities.

He is refusing to step down despite international pressure and the threat by other West African nations of a military intervention.

Last week, Sheriff Bolang, the country’s information minister resigned and fled over the refusal of Jammeh to step down after his defeat in the December, 2016 poll.

Nigeria spent N2billion to fuel fighter jets for 2,105 missions against Boko Haram – Air Force

The Air Officer Commanding Tactical Air Command Nurudeen Balogun of the Nigerian Air Force on Monday, January 16 in Yola, Adamawa state said the force flew 6773 hours in 2,105 missions and 3,534 sorties in its operations in the North-East of the country in 2016.

Balogun, who is an Air Vice Mashal, also said that the force used over N2 billion for Jet A1 fuel for aircraft.

He further disclosed that the N2 billion excludes the cost of maintenance and consumables during the period.

“A total of 348 sorties were generated by the air component for the operation that led to the capture of Alargano, the supposedly spiritual headquarters of Boko Haram.

“The intensity of the operation of crackdown forced some breakaway groups of the Boko Haram insurgents to move towards the far North.

“The Multi-national Joint Task Force initiated Operation Gama Aiki and very important location, Malamfatori, was captured on Sept. 27, 2016,” he said.

On the other hand, the Air Component Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole Charles Owoh noted that compared to only one in July 2015, not less than five serviceable surveillance aircrafts were now operational.

This, he said, is as a result of government’s commitment to ending insurgency in the region

Meanwhile, pilots have opened up for the first time about their roles in the war against terrorism ravaging the Northern part of the country

According to some of the pilots, the Boko Haram terrorists are seen as a group of nuisance requiring unnecessary attention.

Security Operatives Intercept 2 Trucks With 145 Children

The Plateau State police command said it has intercepted two trucks carrying 145 children from Bauchi, Gombe and Jigawa states. According, a statement issued by the public relations officer, Terna Tyopev, the driver, conductor and all accomplices will be charged to court.

The statement said the children, who are all male, were being taken to places unknown to even the coordinators of the movement.

The PPRO added that the children, aged between four to eight years, were to be shared to Plateau, Kaduna and Nasarawa states.

Tyopev said the police were liaising with the Plateau chapter of Jama’atul Nasril Islam and other critical stakeholders, to establish contact with the two state governments for the return of the children to their parents.

The police said it would charge those behind the action to court to serve as a deterrent to others.

“This trend, if not checked, will cause embarrassment to Plateau, north central and the nation at large,” he added.

It urged the public to be vigilant and report the presence of strange children in their environment.

I have not enjoyed my marriage with Muma Gee – Prince Eke

In most marriages the woman is always the one complaining of the man abandoning her and their children but the reverse seems to be the case in the marriage of singer Muma Gee and her actor husband Prince Eke.

Eke had called out his wife for abandoning him and their three children among them a few months old baby. The actor who took to his Instagram page to call out his wife over her action is convinced he want out of the marriage which he said he has endured so far.

Eke said his marriage to Muma Gee is over as he is tired of her excesses. The actor who now refers to himself as a single father of three children said he wonders what Abuja men have offered his wife for her to have abandoned her home.

When asked if he would reverse his decision of ending their marriage if his in-laws called for settlement said:

“That has not happened yet. Till it happens, I would know what to do. I am not agitating for the custody of my children even though I love them to a fault and would do anything for them. The reason is that the nature of my job does not permit me to stay in one place and even if I say I would marry another woman, I would not want anyone to maltreat my children or treat them like second class citizens in my house.

“Till now, there is no time my mother-in-law has called me to apologize for her daughter’s behaviour. I guess they already know her antecedents. This is a woman who gave birth at an old age. I wonder what the men in Abuja that are deceiving her are giving her or telling her.

“Marriage is meant to be enjoyed and not endured but I have been enduring in my marriage. For me to say that my marriage is over, you should know that I have been through a lot in the marriage. How would a married woman leave her child of about two months and four days only to go to Abuja for about three weeks to a month?”

“I was out of the country when she left the children especially the baby that is barely three months old for a show. Which show could she have that lasted for close to a month? It was not till I posted on Instagram that she abandoned her children that she told her mother to come and bring the child to her.

I have not enjoyed my marriage with Muma Gee – Prince Eke

“Meanwhile, people had been sending me messages on social media that they had seen my wife in a pub. Which married man would be happy about this? There are several other things she has done that I would not like to talk about because I don’t like speaking about my family on the pages of the newspaper.

“Those people that say I tried to stop her from being an entertainer or married her for money have no idea what they are talking about. I have on several occasions helped her in her career the same way she has helped me in mine; that is what married couples do.

I gave her some of my equipment to shoot the video for her song, Port-Harcourt is Back. I have also invested in her career.

“How would people say that I married her because of her money? I am solely responsible for paying the school fees of the children. Even when I am not in the country, I tell her to pay and I refund her later.

“As far as I am concerned, my marriage is over.”

Meanwhile, Muma Gee in her response to her husband's accusation of her abandoning her home and children said she needs to work to earn a living. And that she was in Abuja to work as she has show there.

Muma Gee and Prince Eke had their traditional wedding on December 20, 2011 and their white wedding days after, December 23, 2011 in Port Harcourt City, Rivers state.

Cucumber or khira can be used as a natural toner and astringent too, due to its cooling properties. It is an easy way to get rid of oiliness in skin and leaves you with a glow. Its juice is ideal to be used as a cleanser to relive blemishes and acne. Due to ts 95% water content, the skin is intact and well-moisturised.

2. Hydrates skin

Cucumber is the perfect way to help hydrate dull skin due to its water content and can easily substitute any moisturiser cream. Cucumber acts well also when mixed with a complementing ingredient. Curd could be used for a soothing and hydrating face pack.

Both of these ingredients are soothing, natural moisturisers providing the skin with the needed nutrients.  Just take some cucumber juice and mix with equal amounts of yoghurt. Blend these well into a fine paste and apply all over your face. Instead of using yoghurt you could substitute it with raw milk to help soothe sunburns.

Pressure! Buhari asked to pay pension to officers of the Biafra war

Pressure! Buhari asked to pay pension to officers of the Biafra war

The civil war officers who voluntarily retired or were discharged from service under the 1976 – 1979 military administration, say they want their 38 years pension arrears paid.

Vanguard reports that the group made the demand in a statement signed by its National Coordinator, retired Sgt. Kasali Busari and made available in Ibadan on Tuesday.

The Group of Able Voluntary Retired or Discharged T Years and Above Military Service decried the non payment of their military pension benefit from 1978 till date.

They referred to the Federal Military Government circular No 4/1977, dated March 30, 1977, which qualified them as payable pensioners.

“The First Republic of Nigeria 1963 (intake) officers and other ranks with the service of 10 years and less than 15 years are eligible to be paid.

“They deserved to be paid pension at the rate of 30 percent of terminal salary or 40 percent in the case of armed forces personnel,” the group quoted .

The group said that their representations to several governments over the years had not yielded positive results.

The statement said that the group was awaiting the payment of their pension, having been incorporated in the 2015 general military pensions verification exercise under President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We are group of the first republic of Nigeria 1963 (intake) that practically prosecuted the past Nigeria and defunct Biafra civil war between 1967 and 1970 respectively.

“We thereafter voluntarily retired or discharged from 1978 to 1992 in accordance with the past federal military government regime from 1976 to 1979 published circular No 4/1977 dated 30th March 1977,” it said.

The statement added: “The circular indicated that when such officers served for 10 years or more but less than 15 years, they will be paid a pension at the rate of 30 percent of terminal salary (40 percent in the case of Armed Forces personnel).

“Majority of the 1963 (intake) that actively prosecuted the past Nigeria and defunct biafra civil war already qualified as payable pensioners from 1978 till date.”

“After we were retired or discharged under the protected FMG published circular and decree of 1977 and 1979 respectively, we were not paid our military pension benefit.”

The statement said that the first republic of Nigeria 1963 (intake) officers and other ranks with the service of above ten years and less than 15 years in the Nigeria Armed Forces had not been paid their military pension. It stated that they have not been paid after the general military pensions verification exercise for the past twelve months.

“It will be unfortunate to subject these courageous citizens to untold hardship in their old age when as a matter of law, the right to receive pension is guaranteed by the provision of the section 173 of the 1999 constitution,” the group said.

Bigg Boss 10: Before RE-ENTERING the house, Swami Om FOOLS show makers! Check out how!

In tonight’s episode of ‘Bigg Boss 10’, Swami Om will come back to the house as he had made an emergency exit for the hearing of a case against him. Swami Om, who has already made his entry inside the house, has again done something which will be shocking yet hilarious.

According to a report on an entertainment portal, Swami Om asked for few garlands before entering the house again. He told the crew members that he wanted to do some pooja before entering the house. The ‘Bigg Boss 10’ makers agreed to the wish and gave some garlands to Swami Om.

After entering the house, Swami Om fooled the other housemates in a funny way.
According to BOC, Swami Om fooled the co-contestants by saying that his fans welcomed him at the airport in a grand way with flower garlands. He even went on to say that many big celebrities were also waiting to welcome him at the airport. This is another lie by Swami Om to hide the fact that he was out for the court hearing.

OMG: 10 Most Shocking Red Carpet Outfits You’ve Ever Seen

Rose McGowan at the VMAs

1998 was a weird time for everyone. Marilyn Manson seems strangely colorful for his usual dark self and Rose McGowan is basically naked on the red carpet. What was she thinking? According to Rose, she thought it would be funny. Also, she didn’t expect for the dress to be that revealing. She wanted something that would be provocative in the back, something that would cause a stir, but she received the dress only the night before the VMA’s and was surprised at how revealing it was in the front. Nevertheless, she decided to be a good sport and wear the dress. She later described that decision as “punk AF”.

She later described that decision as “punk AF”.

1. Micaela Schäfer at the Men in Black premiere

Let’s Start with this “dress” Micaela Schäfer wore to the 2012 Men in Black Premiere. It’s really difficult to call this a dress, since it’s barely there. As you can see this dress leaves nothing to imagination. Honestly, it looks like it’s made of old cassette tapes and a belt. However, if you google Micaela Schäfer, you’ll realise that she’s no stranger to just painting her outfits on, so this is actually one of her modest outfits.
2. Rihanna at the CFDA Fashion Awards

Rihanna is no stranger to showing off her figure and we love her for that. She’s got a great body and it should be seen. But this was one of those times a lot of us thought she went a bit too far. At the CFDA fashion awards in 2014 Rihanna was pretty much naked. The pink sparkly dress was completely see through. The only thing she had to cover up the strategic bits was her fluffy pink boa, but it didn’t really help.

3. Bjork at the Oscars 2001

Compared to the previous two dresses, this one is just a humorous addition to the list. This dress was shocking not because it showed too much skin, but because it was such a funny and unexpected choice. Leave it to Bjork to shock people with a whimsical dress and add some controversy to the otherwise very formal event.
4. Elizabeth Hurley at the Funeral Premiere 

At this point in time we wouldn’t even look twice at this dress. Yes, it shows a lot of cleavage and yes, it has cutouts on the sides. These days it’s not something we’d consider shocking. We see celebs show up to events almost naked. But back in 1994 this dress created a lot of controversy and was discussed for days on end, for being so provocative and shocking. This little throwback just goes to show that it was much either to shock people with your outfits in 1994.

5. Jennifer Lopez at the Grammy’s 

Remember that time Jennifer Lopez showed up for Grammy’s wearing essentially beachwear? Wasn’t that fun? It was a bold move for sure. The dress, if we can call it that, showed off not only JLo’s cleavage, but also her midriff in one great swoop. It looked like Jennifer might’ve been lounging next to her pool and suddenly remembered that she’s late for Grammy’s and decided ‘to hell with it, I’m fabulous, I’ll just wear this’.

7. Miley Cyrus at the VMAs

When did the adorable Hannah Montana grow up so fast and become the scandalous Miley Cyrus? It was rather jarring at first, when she cut her hair and started dressing all crazy. But I feel like at this point we’ve made our peace with it. Nowadays we’re just used to her crazy outfits — it’s what Miley does best. Remember this dress? I fee like Miley gave Rose McGowan a run for her money with this one.
8. Lady Gaga at the MTV 2010

Lady Gaga, the queen of crazy outfits. She definitely knows how to make a statement. You think you can shock anyone with a see-through dress? Or a dress made out of Swarovski crystals? How about you step up your game. Try wearing a dress made out of raw meat. Not only that, but also complete the outfit with a stake for a hat and shoes made out of meat.

9. Irina Shayk at the Oscar Party 2015

Remember this super revealing dress? Did you also wonder if she’s had quite the moral dilemma when deciding whether she should wear flesh colored underwear or not wear it at all? In the end, as you can see she decided to go commando. Which is fine if you’re the only person that knows you’re going commando. It makes you feel like you’ve got a secret. I wonder if it feels the same when everyone knows your secret.

10. Madonna at the Met Gala 2016

Madonna was always inventive. She knows how to shock the public and keep herself interesting throughout her career. She’s no stranger to pointy bras and sexy outfits. She’s all about confidence and sex appeal. But do you ever think that perhaps at the age of 57 it’s probably about time to stop showing off your boobs and buttcheeks in such an obvious way?
