Evacuated from Abuja Bomb Site, Bomb Blast Victims Face Hunger at Hospitals

When Shuaibu Abukabar arrived Nyanya Motor Park early Monday, his plan was to travel to Suleja to purchase new wares for his shop as he does bi-weekly. But 15 minutes after paying for a ticket and taking a spot on a long queue of passengers, a deafening blast threw him off the ground, set off a huge fire and left bodies of injured and the dead littered around him. In three minutes, Mr. Abubakar recalled, everything seemed quiet as a thick dark smoke curled into the morning air.
“At first there was quietness and suddenly I saw smoke and fire, then I passed out,” Mr. Abubakar narrated from the hospital where rescuers rushed him to.

About 80 students of the Government Girls’ Secondary School in Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State, kidnapped Monday evening by heavily armed Boko Haram Islamists have escaped from the custody of their abductors.

18 year old Missing Girl Found Dead, Raped by Gangsters while Working as a Prostitute!

Policemen attached to the Orile Police Division in Lagos State have apprehended two gangsters for allegedly raping and killing an 18-year-old commercial sex worker, Oluwatosin Ami. PUNCH Metro reports that the suspects, John-Paul Chukwuebuka, 19; and Ebuka Chimudi, 22; belonged to a gang which specialised in luring young ladies to hotels with the aim of dispossessing them of their belongings and raping them.

According to police authorities, on April 10, 2013, two members of the gang posed as customers and visited the Happy Day Hotel, Orile. Oluwatosin was approached by the suspects and she took them into her room at the hotel which she secured at the cost of N3, 500 per day.The suspects overpowered Oluwatosin and stuffed a cloth in her mouth to prevent her from screaming. She was also bound by the hands, while the suspects took turns in raping her.Afterwards, the suspects stole her phone and money, locked her inside the room, took the key and tossed it into a canal.

A relative of the deceased said the following morning, when the hotel attendants wanted to clean the hotel rooms, they knocked on Oluwatosin's door but there was no response. It was learnt that the  attendants then used a spare key to open the door and the corpse of Oluwatosin was found.

Her father, Babatunde, told PUNCH Metro that the matter was reported at the Orile Police Station and his daughter’s corpse was taken to the Mainland Hospital, Yaba. Babatunde said he had no idea that his daughter was a commercial sex worker. He said the family had been looking for her since December last year and had reported her missing at the Adeniji Adele Police Division on the Lagos Island. He said:

“My daughter was in JSS3 in 2012 when she dropped out of school. She said she wanted to be a sales girl and we got a job for her, but she did not stay there. Suddenly, in December last year, she left the house and did not return home. Her mother and I called her on the telephone several times, but she would say she was fine and putting up in a friend’s place. She used to visit her grandmother, but in January, she stopped picking calls. All attempts to get her proved abortive. We did not hear anything from her until we received a telephone call a few days ago, saying her corpse had been found in a hotel.”

The mother of the deceased, Muibat, lamented that Oluwatosin was her third child that would die within five years. She said the deceased was her first born and she had only two children remaining. She said she did her best as a parent and wondered why her daughter chose such a lifestyle.

When Punch correspondent approached the hotel for comment, the employee at the front desk said the management had given instruction that journalists should not be spoken to. However, an employee of the hotel told the police that the rule of the house was that more than two patrons should not be in a room at the same time. The employee said he was not aware that Oluwatosin had taken two people into her room.

The suspects, in their statements, confessed to killing Oluwatosin, but said it was by mistake. They said they only played a minor role in the crime as the prime suspects were still at large. The police explained that 19-year-old Chukwuebuka was arrested by members of the Odua Peoples Congress at City Point Hotel, Apapa, where he had gone to commit a similar crime. Through Chukwuebuka’s confession, Chimudi was arrested. Chukwuebuka identified other suspects as Williams, Victor, Joshua and Kojo. He said:

“We have been doing this thing for a while now. We have operated in brothels in Ajegunle and Kirikiri. I have raped over five girls, but none of them died. We operate in hotels where there is loud music and many rooms. We usually use rooms that are not located on the ground floor so if a victim shouts, no one would hear her.”

'Yesterday's Attack on Nigeria is Spiritual. Pray instead of Complaining Publicly' - IK Osakioduwa

Big Brother Africa host and Radio/TV presenter Ik Osakioduwa has called on all Nigerians to pray for the country instead of complaining publicly and doing nothing privately.

According to Ik, the prayers have become necessary cos yesterday's Abuja bomb blast is first of all spiritual before anything else, so our response must also be spiritual first. When Cain killed Abel, God said Abel's blood cried to Him from the ground, so Ik is telling everyone to ask God to hear the cry of the slain innocents, that he will hear us.

He also listed prayer points incase you don't know what to pray for. Tweets are after the cut. Read from very bottom to top.

Laide Bakare's Ex-Husband Blasts Her over Current Hubby's Alleged Fraud Case

USA-based businessman Olumide Okufulure is Yoruba actress, Laide Bakare's ex-husband. Coming on the heels of her new husband Alhaji Tunde Orilowo's travail with EFCC, Olumide has blasted her in an explosive magazine interview.

When asked how he sees Laide Bakare in the light of the crisis her husband is currently in, Olumide replied:

"You see, Laide has just started. She hasn't even reached where she's going. She will soon leave this Alhaji because she likes a comfortable place. I heard she claims that I don't have money. Now she's where she can get money. When I met her, she was driving a Celica. I bought her a 2 million Chrysler car. When she had our child, I bought a first-class ticket for her to bring our baby. I later bought Infinity Jeep that she gave her younger sibling.  When she was about to marry me, it was the money she saw. When she came to America, I bought her a 4matic Benz. Laide isn't a good person, she is yet to see God's wrath."

Olumide Okunfulure also disclosed that he will be getting married before the end of this year. His wife-to-be, according to him, is an Edo-born medical doctor.

PDP Blames APC for Abuja Bomb Blast!

The Peoples Democratic Party has condemned as barbaric, monstrous and extremely wicked, the bomb attack which claimed the lives of innocent Nigerians in Nyanya, a suburb of Abuja on Monday. The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, in a statement said the party was shocked and has remained grief- stricken since it received the news of the gruesome attack and killing of Nigerians pursuing their legitimate endeavours.

“The PDP weeps. We are indeed grief-stricken. Our hearts go out to the bereaved, especially those who have been orphaned and widowed and those now deprived of their bread winners by this evil act. We share in their pain, their anguish and their loss and pray that those behind their grief must not escape justice,” the party said.

Stating that the attacks cannot be justified under any guise, the PDP maintained that they are politically motivated and can be traced to the utterances and comments of desperate persons who seek to undermine and discredit the present administration and make the nation ungovernable for President Goodluck Jonathan by instituting a reign of terror against the people.

“We stand by our earlier statements that these attacks on our people are politically motivated by unpatriotic persons, especially those in the APC, who have been making utterances and comments, promoting violence and blood-letting as a means of achieving political control. Nigerians are also aware of utterances by certain APC governors which have been aimed at undermining our security forces and emboldening insurgents against the people.
Those who have been promoting violence through their utterances can now see the monster they have created. They can now see the end product of their comments; a country flowing daily with the blood of the innocent.

The question is; how do they feel when they see the mangled and blood-soaked bodies of their victims? How do they feel when they hear the voices of the dying and the injured? Of course they feel nothing. Their hearts have been hardened and they are embittered by the fact that they have been rejected by the people. They are bitter because the people have chosen to rally round the government they love and voted for; but must they chose the path of violence and bloodletting as a response to the wishes and aspiration of the people?” the statement queried.

Urging all well meaning Nigerians to stand up and join President Goodluck Jonathan in his untiring efforts to check terrorism in the country, the PDP cautioned those fueling the attacks to retrace their steps, rid themselves of  bitterness and desperation and seek forgiveness from God.The party, in solidarity with the people also shelved all official engagements while praying God to grant the bereaved the fortitude to bear the loss.
