When Nonso Ozoemena, a 28-year-old man, arrived in Lagos, his plan was to set up a business so that he would be able to support his widowed mother and his seven siblings in Anambra State. Soon after, he was able to open a restaurant in Trade Fair Complex, FESTAC, and it seemed his dream was coming true. His expectation was however eroded after a drunken police corporal, Mohammed Abubakar, shot him in the eye in the FESTAC area on August 5, 2013. 
 
Narrating what transpired on the fateful day, he said, “I had just returned from work and I was about entering my house at Amuwo Odofin when I heard the policeman arguing with someone in the next house. The policeman then called his colleagues for help. “When his colleagues arrived, they persuaded him to leave the place because he was drunk. After much pleading, the policeman left. A few minutes later, the policeman returned with a gun and started shooting sporadically. “One of the bullets hit me in the right eye. A barber, Bright John, was killed.” PUNCH Metro learnt that during the shooting, a pregnant woman was hit while another man, Tayo Ajasa, was also shot in the thigh. It was learnt that the policeman, who is attached to a security company in the area, fled the scene after realising the havoc he had wreaked. 
Ozoemena and the other victims were later taken to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi Araba. It was learnt that while other victims were treated and discharged, Ozoemena, was taken to the Accident and Emergency Unit of the hospital, where the eye was operated. The company was also said to have contributed N146, 000 to pay the medical bill. The victim, who had been discharged, told PUNCH Metro that he had not been able to go to work since the incident occurred. He said he had been in constant pains and had found it difficult to sleep. However, Ozoemena’s lawyer, Mr. George Nwahajioke, said the police must compensate his client to the tune of N100m.

AMAZING!!! Newborn Calf Has 8 Legs, 4 Ears, 2 Bodies And One Head [PHOTOS]

Read Time:1 Minute, 7 Second
A cow in New Zealand has delivered a deformed calf who has two bodies, four ears, and eight legs on Monday. A veterinarian of dairy farm, Neil Davy, who delivered the stillborn calf , told the website NZ Farmer that if he hadn't been there, the mother cow would have surely died. "It was hard going," Davy told the website, "I was up to my elbows in lube and calf goo, sweat coming off my forehead. It's not nice to see a cow in distress." Wow, another genetically mutilated birth. Another picture after the break … 
 
Davy told the site that he'd originally thought he was delivering twins. Close enough: identical twins come from one egg that divides, and veterinarian Jonathan Spencer told NZ Farmer that Davy's calf "[seems] like an incomplete divide of an egg." Other odd deformities have been known to occur in cattle. In 2012, a calf with an extra pair of legs was born in Switzerland. Although vets didn't initially think the six-legged cow had much chance of survival, the calf seemed to be doing just fine at two months old. In January 2011, a two-headed cow was born in Georgia. The farmer said that the animal ate with both heads.

Gay Man Beaten And Arrested In Ogun State Over Lover’s Pen*s Disappeared [PHOTOS]

Read Time:1 Minute, 39 Second
The incident happened at 1 Kotodayo in the Iyana-Iyesi area of Ota after Sadiq’s friend, Ibrahim (surname withheld), allegedly raised the alarm declaring that his male organ had disappeared. According to Ibrahim, who was seen Unclad before some men, Sadiq had paid him a visit last night and deep into the night, he began to have s*x with him. Ewwww, so irritating! Another picture and the rest of the story after the break …
 
When P.M.NEWS visited the scene, Ibrahim’s joystick was of normal size, but he was making efforts to make it turgid as a proof that it was fully restored. Ibrahim, who is also a squatter in the house, alleged that it was the first time Sadiq would be visiting him. Though they have been friends for some time now, Ibrahim said he never knew his friend was gay until last night. Sadiq, in a confessional statement to local vigilantes at the scene of the incident, said he has been homosexual for the past three years. He denied snatching his friend’s male organ, but said he had engaged only men in sex since then and further indicted a prophet whose white garment church is within the community as the one who prepared the concoction with which he engages in the act.
 
However, the prophet, who was invited by the vigilantes, denied the allegation. He said he had known Sadiq as one who never chased after women and did not know that the man was gay.Neighbours said that the owner of the one-room apartment where the incident occurred lives and works in Lagos and only visits the place at weekends. Sadiq was later whisked away by the vigilantes after much plea to stop beating him was rebuffed by the people of the area.Nigeria is not in support of gay practice no wonder a bill has been approved setting 14-year-jail term for offenders.

APC, other opposition parties jittery – Jonathan

0 0
Read Time:6 Minute, 44 Second
ABUJA—PRESIDENT Goodluck Jonathan declared, yesterday, that the opposition political parties were already confused and scared of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, ahead of the 2015 elections.
Speaking at the 62nd National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting of the PDP, President Jonathan said that perceived opponents and enemies of the PDP, who concluded that the party will be divided and continue in lingering crisis have been terribly disappointed. He noted that “the key thing that makes life go on is our ability to resolve our crises.”
 
The President stressed that the ruling party, irrespective of its differences and disagreements which also occur in families, will always resolve its problems amicably, adding that those who thought that they will reap from political differences in the PDP have been shamed.
 
Jonathan, who described the emergence of All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Movement, PDM, as a blessing to the ruling party, however, stressed that the opposition political parties were already jittery based on what he termed the intimidating credentials of PDP.
 
PDP must lead by example— Tukur
 
Meanwhile, the PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur at the meeting, warned that as a ruling party, PDP must lead by example and act as a beacon of light to other political parties and Nigerians, even as he boasted that political adversaries of the party have been shamed, adding that the PDP as a party has continued to grow from strength to strength in spite of challenges being faced.
 
Also yesterday the PDP NEC approved and ratified the August 31,  2013 date for the Special National Convention, even as it bowed to a court injunction restraining the conduct of the South West Zonal Congress earlier slated for Saturday, August 24, 2013 and thereafter postponed the congress as part of moves to uphold the rule of law and in deference to the court ruling.
 
NEC directed the National Working Committee, NWC, to follow through the court process and when concluded, set a new date for the South West Zonal Congress.
 
The NEC was very short as it took off when the President came in  at 2.42 pm and ended by 3.35pm.
 
Speaking further, President Jonathan said: “I want to thank all of you for finding time to attend this emergency NEC meeting. I believe some of you got this information quite late, yesterday and the meeting has to be called because of the provisions of our constitution as our chairman related.
 
“I was not expecting to see so many people especially our senior party members, but when I came in and looked across and saw the faces, I thank God that though people believe that PDP will have issues, that we are divided, they will all be disappointed.
 
“Let me sincerely appreciate our party members for what they are doing across the country. What the elders of the party are doing, the Working Committee. The Jerry Gana Committee, our governors and the members of the National Assembly for all they have been doing in flying the flag of the party.
 
PDP has intimidating credentials — Jonathan
 
“The chairman said it all that we thought that political activities will not start so early in the country, but because of the intimidating credentials of the PDP, people started meeting, parties started coming together, and new ones are being formed which is a blessing for all of us all because people are confused about how we manage PDP and they will continue to be confused.
 
“Our party members, I commend you and reassure that we will carry on the mandate of the party based on our manifesto so that no matter what anybody is saying, things will be on ground  for them to compare what the PDP government is doing.
 
“A number of things that Nigeria almost forgot about like railways, we are bringing them back. I believe that by the time we move into early next year, things will become very obvious. Even those who doubt us, will not have anything to say. We promise that we are going to do that with the assistance of the party.
 
“In party politics, as I came in, the Vice President whispered something to me about some lapses somewhere. There maybe disagreements and in all institutions even at the family level, there must be disagreements and issues. But the key thing that makes life go on is our ability to resolve our crisis. No matter the disagreement, no matter the interests, politics they say is a game of interests. We will resolve these differences amicably to make sure that every member of the party is happy. That is the area I commend the elders of the party via the committees set up by the National Chairman for going round to see how some of these differences would be resolved at the state level. The chairman of BoT has been meeting with various groups to make sure that we speak with one voice, and we will continue to speak with one voice.
 
“Those who continue to think that PDP cannot come together, that PDP cannot manage success, they will be terribly disappointed. We will go to Eagles Square and take the right decision for our party.”
 
On his party, the National Chairman, Tukur said: There are internal organs and mechanisms for conflict resolution in our Party. I encourage our members to explore these avenues in ventilating their grievances and to, as much as possible, avoid litigations which make a mockery of our stand on peace and stability.
 
“My doors and indeed those of all our Party leaders are wide open to all members of our great Party. I run an open door policy that furthers the principles of triple ‘R’ i.e Reconciliation, Reformation and Rebuilding.
 
“We need peace and friendly concord in our Party. We cannot reach our destination in an atmosphere of bitterness and rivalry.
 
“I therefore call on all our party members across the country to sheath their swords and enthrone enduring peace.  I want to commend the National  Reconciliation Committee for the good work it is doing and encourage our members to take their grievances to the committee or other organs of the party entrusted with the task of restoring peace in the party.
 
“We must give the President our unalloyed support as he continues to implement the manifesto of the PDP to the benefit of all Nigerians – Our Railways are working again, Power Supply is improving and our Airports are wearing new looks, etc. More grease to your elbows – Mr. President!”
 
The Roll Call
 
At yesterday’s meeting, former President and past Chairman, Board of Trustees, BoT of the party, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, governors Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State; Theodore Orji of Abia; Ibrahim Shema of Katsina; Gabriel Suswam of Benue and suspended Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers, were absent.

BBA 2013: Scary stories of being mugged

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 48 Second

As the Housemates sat in the kitchen eating and drinking, they started sharing stories of being mugged. While some stories were sad and scary, some were also very funny.

The conversation had started off while Cleo and Melvin had been clearing stuff off the table after they finished cooking. Elikem had been the last one to wake up after his nap earlier only to find the other four Housemates chatting away in the kitchen.

As the conversation went on, Cleo told her fellow Housemates of how she got robbed on a rainy day, except the thief hadn’t been able to grab her bag. She ran with her bag in the opposite direction, laughing at the mugger who had only managed to get away with the bag handles. The Housemates thought she was really lucky as they laughed at her funny ordeal.

The pretty Namibian Dillish also had a story to tell. She was pointing to a scar on her arm when she narrated a story of how she got it. She had just gotten paid when a thief started following her. “He just came from the back and with a big brick he came straight for me,” she said with hand gestures. She managed to run away but she fell down and the man took her hand bag. Dillish also managed to get her hand bag back thanks to an ex-boyfriend who didn’t let the matter go.

Of all the stories, Elikem’s was the most terrifying. He told the gang that in his country, the robbers carry around sharpened machetes and when you are busy on a call on your phone, they wait for you to finish talking and ask you to hand over the phone. “You give them the phone and you run,” Elikem expressed.

It’s nice to know that our Chasers have been through the same things we all have, like being robbed of your possessions. It goes to show that they are as human as the next person and are also prone to life’s events.

Whose story was the funniest for you?

Sen. Coburn: Obama ‘perilously close’ to impeachment

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 11 Second
Sen. Tom Coburn and President Obama are friends, but that didn't stop the Oklahoma Republican from saying this week that the president is "getting perilously close" to deserving impeachment.
 
"Those are serious things, but we're in serious times," Coburn said Wednesday in Muskogee. "And I don't have the legal background to know if that rises to 'high crimes and misdemeanors,' but I think you're getting perilously close."
 
Coburn didn't specify why be believes Obama is close to meriting impeachment, but he criticized what he called a "lawless" administration. The two men have been friends going back to 2005, when the Democratic president first arrived in Congress as an Illinois senator.
 
There's been lots of talk from Republicans during Congress' summer recess about defunding the health care law known as "Obamacare," among the reasons why impeachment comes up. The Supreme Court last year upheld the constitutionality of the law.
 
Meanwhile, Coburn isn't the only Republican who's talked of impeachment with constituents.
 
Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich., said "it would be a dream come true" to draft and submit articles of impeachment against Obama but conceded that he's got no evidence to do so.

Reports: San Diego mayor signs resignation letter

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 17 Second
San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has signed his letter of resignation and will step down Friday afternoon, according to news reports.
 
The Los Angeles Times and U-T San Diego reported the letter was signed pending the City Council's approval of a deal reached between Filner's lawyers and the city over a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a former Filner aide.
 
The San Diego City Council meets at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET in a closed session to vote on the agreement, reached this week after mediation sessions involving Filner, his lawyers, representatives of the city and attorney Gloria Allred, the lawyer for Irene McCormack Jackson, the mayor's ex-communication director.
 
The Los Angeles Times and two local TV stations have reported Filner agreed to step aside and end weeks of turmoil that has engulfed San Diego, nicknamed "America's Finest City." At least 18 women have accused Filner of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior, including groping, unwanted kissing and suggestive comments.
 
It's not been determined how much, if any, taxpayer money will be used to help Filner with his legal obligations. Sources told the Los Angeles Times the city has agreed to pay "some, if not all" of Filner's share of damages awarded in the lawsuit.
 
City Attorney Jan Goldsmith said Friday that the city needs to "begin to heal."
 
"We look at stability as the mayor resigning and a special election, that's what we're facing," Goldsmith said without divulging details of the deal. "That's stability for San Diego right now. If that happens, then we're on our way to stability. … We cannot have six months to a year more of this issue."
 
Filner would become the fourth San Diego mayor since the 1980s to resign before his term ended.
 
Filner, 70, was elected last year after serving 10 terms in Congress. He is the first Democrat elected to lead the nation's eighth-largest city in 20 years. Filner served on the San Diego school board and City Council and taught at San Diego State University before he was elected to Congress in 1992.
 
He could be eligible for a federal pension of about $59,000 a year because of his congressional service, according to calculations by Pete Sepp of the National Taxpayers Union.
 
Filner could be eligible for a combined pension of about $82,000 a year when the pensions from his previous City Council stint and state university work are included, the ABC News affiliate in San Diego reported.

Nigeria’s Oily Economy

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 18 Second
AN erroneous belief that the relevance of oil approximates to the life span of Nigeria’s oil reserves partially fuels the contentment with which the authorities treat the diversification of the economy.
Concerns over the dependence of the economy on oil raged more than three decades ago, now the issue is total dependence on oil, yet the matter is discussed as one of several issues beleaguering Nigeria.
No, oil is about the only issue that makes and mars Nigeria with a rapacity that is lost on Nigerian leaders. Nigeria is mostly about oil and its depleting consequences on developing our national resources, some of which are in more abundance and could provide more multiplier effects on the economy than oil.
Oil devastates with a rapidity few enterprises impose on its surroundings. The billions of Dollars it heaves into national coffers kills thoughts for the perpetual penury its exploration ordains for the surroundings. Agitations for equitable use of oil resources fail too in securing renewal of the ruined environment.
Perhaps more frightening, with all the positions on laying more solid foundations for the economy, away from the volatility of oil, not much has been done in the more than 40 years oil assumed podium position in our economy.
Oil could become irrelevant quicker than the most optimistic predictions. Its damages to the environment, its unpredictable high prices that task planning even for the most advanced economies, the West’s inability to control the vital resource, are increasing the pace of searches for alternatives to oil.
Plans for the Nigerian economy are primed on oil. They would have been as simple as re-investing some oil revenue in other sectors of the economy. They have remained unimplemented.
According to the World Bank’s Nigeria Economic Report for May 2013, “Despite the recovery in oil prices, Nigeria expanded its fiscal stimulus significantly, increasing consolidated spending by an estimated 2.5 per cent of Gross Domestic Product, GDP, and drawing down the remaining balance of the Excess Crude Account at the same time that many other oil exporters were building back their reserves.”
Oil still accounts for 95 per cent of exports and 75 per cent of consolidated budgetary revenues. its mismanagement throws the economy into a spin. When the prices dip, or more thieves help themselves to the oil, as seems to be the case now, the economy wheels almost to a halt.
The annual conference of the Nigerian Guild of Editors themed ‘Nigeria Beyond Oil’ that began in Asaba yesterday is drumming more attention to the precariousness of oil-based economy.
Without a thorough planning of the economy, an indiscernible future awaits Nigerians. Our governments should rescue Nigerians from the blight of oil.
