The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria has condemned suggestions by some stakeholders in the country, who have advocated that the pregnancy of some Boko Haram female victims, conceived through rape, should be terminated.
Chairman of the Health Committee of CBCN and Auxiliary Bishop of Abuja (Catholic Archdiocese), Most Rev. Anselm Umoren, stated this during a press conference on Monday in Abuja.
He queried how Nigeria would accept to visit such innocent children “with capital punishment” in the name of abortion for an offence they did not commit simply because their fathers were misguided

See how these evil men and women want to ruin our lives! Especially for ladies on the road that are genuinely in distress. I just found this story on Nigeria Police's Facebook page, happened yesterday at about 8:30pm. It reads:
CAR SNATCHING: On 24.05.2015 at about 8:30pm, one male person (name withheld) of Ring Road, Ibadan, Oyo State reported to Police in Osogbo that as he was driving through Iwo Road, Osogbo, Osun State and at a point known as Onibueja area, a Lady standing beside a Honda Accord car flagged him down and requested for his assistance
Vice-President Namadi Sambo has presented the handover notes of President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration to the transition committee of the incoming government, with a promise that members of the outgoing cabinet will make themselves available for clarifications when needed.
Ahmed Joda’s, chairman of the transition committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC), received the report on behalf of the incoming administration of Muhammadu Buhari.
Sambo said the documents he was handing over contained “properly articulated and printed” activities of the federal government between 2011 and 2015. He explained that the permanent secretaries of each ministry signed each page to authenticate it, and expressed hope that it would
SaharaReporters has just received exclusive court papers revealing Senator-Elect Kashamu’s latest attempt to avoid extradition to the United States for drug-related charges. The documents, submitted to the court by his lawyer Ajibola Oluyede, demand his unconditional release from house arrest and for the NDLEA to vacate all his properties.
This is the latest development in a series of dramatic events that culminated in the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency agents surrounding the Lagos residence of Senator-Elect Buruji Kashamu this past Saturday morning.
According Mr. Oluyede, who spoke to SaharaReporters, Mr. Kashamu has been held under house arrest illegally since Saturday and has been denied freedom of movement.
“The NDLEA has no warrant to arrest or detain Kashamu, and they have no legal
Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria, MOMAN, agreed to call off their strike action over unpaid subsidy claims and commence lifting of petroleum products nationwide in the next six hours.
The agreement was reached after a meeting with the Chairman, Senate committee on petroleum resources, Magnus Abe, Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister for the Economy, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, MD of NNPC Joseph Dawha and other stakeholders in the oil and gas sector in Abuja.
At the public hearing organised by the Joint Senate Committee on Petroleum Resources (Upstream and Downstream), stakeholders in the petroleum sector resolved to mobilise their members for the immediate distribution of fuel across the country.
Even though Nigeria is Africa’s largest oil producer, it has to import refined petroleum products due to a lack of local refineries. The importers have been in dispute with the government for some time over unpaid bills of nearly $1 billion. That’s the difference between the cost of imported products and the government subsidised fuel prices in Nigeria since October 2014.
The scarcity has resulted in a number of high profile companies shutting down or curtailing operations as radio stations, telecommunications companies and public services have all been badly affected. Access bank and Guaranty Trust Bank has joined the cue.
This is the legacy of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Finance minister, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala and Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison Madueke.
What a shame
Staff say the governor also promised to pay them generous Christmas bonus for 2014 but has so far failed to keep his words.
According to reports by Premium Times: Mr. Akpabio promised them general financial incentive if they could travel to Akwa Ibom from the Abuja base to vote for his anointed candidate in the governorship election.
The offer was irresistible to many staff who travelled the over 634 kilometres by road to vote for the state PDP governorship candidate.
But over a month since they returned, the staff said, Mr. Akpabio has failed to pay up.
After pressuring him quietly for weeks, the staff ran out of patience and embarked on a protest Monday to compel the governor to pay before handing over to his successor on Friday.
Trouble started when the suspect demanded custody of his baby without paying her mother’s bride price and her parents refused to release the baby.
The suspect, who was a security man at her street in GRA, Onitsha, fell in love with the girl before he was sacked from the duty in December 2014.
She claims she’ll just be clocking 30 on Friday, June 12, 2015, as against the speculation within and outside the industry that the Nollywood star is either 35 or above 35.
Halima claims she actually lied about her age when she wanted to join Nollywood ‘some years back’ so as to fit in.
Speaking to Encomium Weekly recently with regard to her birthday preparations, she gave insights into her ‘real age’ and how she plans to celebrate:
What preparations she has on ground for her big day?
I don’t understand if there should be any preparations on that, please (laughs). I am only planning to spend it with you guys. So, get ready. It’s going to be a birthday with the press. Nothing elaborate at all. It’s going to be an avenue for media interaction where everybody will be free to ask me any question about my life and career, be it positive or negative. No holds barred.
What age exactly will you be celebrating?
I will be 30 on June 12, 2015.
But that’s incredible because a lot of people believe you’re more than that. Some even said you’re 35. How come you now say you’re just 30?
When you say the truth, people argue. When you lie, they also argue. But I have said the truth, and I really don’t know what to do again. But when I came into Nollywood, I had to lie just to fit in because it’s an era of aunty, aunty. And I was in JSS II then.
So, if people still can’t believe that I lied then just to fit in, that means they need a reality check. I am proud of my age.
That’s the truth about my age. Or are you the one who issued me a birth certificate? I am 30 and I am proud of it.
But Oge Okoye seems to have gotten over the emotional toil that came with the rumour because four months ago, Enquirer Magazine would allege that she has kicked off a relationship with a southeast-based business mogul.
And today, she shared a picture of a $3,500 18-carat gold and diamond Piaget wristwatch which she apparently just received from the unnamed lover.
Spotted last night at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport were Nollywood peeps, Chinedu Ikedieze, Osita Iheme, Kanayo O. Kanayo, Monalisa Chinda, Patience Ozokwo, Francis Duru, Segun Arinze, Zebul Daya and others.
The Nollywood peeps were all heading to Gambia, for the birthday of president Yahya Abdul-Aziz Jemus Junkung Jammeh, who celebrates today.
The Gambian president who turned 50 has requested the presence of the aforementioned Nollywood peeps as his special guests.
President Yahya Jammeh of Gambia took over power in the 1994 military coup, was elected as president in 1996 and re-elected in 2001, 2006 and 2011.
Even compared to some of last week’s most extravagant soirees at Cannes, Naomi’s bash was epic: guests helicoptered into the grounds of the Chateau Saint Jeannet, which saves the trouble of swanning along a red carpet, Mirror UK reports.
Inside the plush do at the lux 15-bed fortress outside Nice were two walls of red roses, a swimming pool filled with huge silver baubles and, amazingly, a vast selection of magazine covers featuring the birthday girl herself.
The model had reportedly spent weeks planning the glamorous bash with her rumoured new squeeze, electric race-car team owner Bert Hedaya.
Both mother and child are hale and hearty.
below is her mail

We are trekking from Warri 2 Otuoke Bayelsa State.
Michael & Edna Ayibaemi.Good Lord, how safe is this, please? Not for the adults but for the baby! I've already replied them with a mail saying they need to stop, not because they can't but because of hw the stress is going to affect their baby. You all recall how the trek transformed John and the ladies that walked with him.

My fiancee is not a sex person. Me on the polar end loves sex. I would want an average of 2 love makings on a normal good day(morning before we leave the bed and last thing at night before we sleep). She only allows me grudgingly once in a while. I cant keep begging my wife for sex. My issue is peculiar cos most times i cant even sleep at night without having sex unless I came home extremely exhausted.
It is bad for me because I see me self having spontaneous erections in public and cheating on her which I end up regretting afterwards. I really want to be faithful but I also am a very sexual person. I will never cheat on a woman who dosnt deny me sex. I have sat her down and have explained these things to her. Even confessing to her and apologizing to her for cheating on her and then try explaining her role in my misbehaviour. I have explained to her but nothing is changing.
Every other thing is good but Honestly, I am a confused man at the moment. I love sex, and I aint gon pretend about that. Can a woman really change into a different person in that department with time? We never fight except because of sex. It has caused issues in the past and i have always made my feelings known to her but nothing is changing.
Please what do i do cos i really feel as if am about to make a grave mistake by going on with this marriage.
What do I do?
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has advised Senator-elect, Buruji Kashamu to stop blaming former president, Olusegun Obasanjo and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George for his problems.
A statement on Sunday signed by its spokesperson, Ofoyeju Mitchel, said:
The fact is that a formal request for his extradition had been received from the Embassy of the United States of America.”
“According to official report, Kashamu has been on the wanted list of both the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
