"Rape is a serious allegation and it is suppose to be taken VERY seriously but so is Falsely accusing someone. When someone rapes a person they go to prison.

The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal filed by a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Umar Ardo, challenging the decision of the court of appeal which stopped him from joining in the lawsuit challenging President Goodluck Jonathan’s eligibility to re-contest in 2015.
The dismissal was sequel to an oral application by counsel to Ardo, Dr Amuda Kannike, seeking to withdraw the appeal.
In dismissing the appeal, the panel of seven justices led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mohammed Mahmud, said the appellant had no business joining in the appeal challenging Jonathan’s eligibility, as no law stopped him from participating in the just concluded convention of the party.
A litigant, Cyriacus Njoku, had earlier approached an Abuja High Court to stop President Jonathan from re-contesting in 2015, but had his suit dismissed on the ground that the court lacked jurisdiction to entertain it.
Unsatisfied, Njoku approached the Court of Appeal to challenge the decision of the lower court.
Attempts by Mr Umar Ardo t to join in the suit were denied on ground that he did not show a reasonable interest that could have warranted his joinder.

The long-awaited Stella Damasus' interview with Golden Icons is finally out!! And wow!, she really did bare it all. To clear the air regarding her relationship with fellow actress Doris Simeon's ex-husband Daniel Ademinokan. Stella had all this to say.
According to her, yes, Daniel is all hers now but she never snatched or stole him from anybody. She also was not going to give a name to what they have together and specifically said ‘The real deal between Daniel and I is the real deal’. Videos are after the cut too.
"Let me put it this way. Let me help you hit the nail on the head. One of the comments I have seen consistently, over and over again, is ‘Stella snatches somebody’s husband’, ‘Stella the husband snatcher’, which is what has been going on. And I had sworn that I would never talk about it, or even listen or stress myself about this thing but I have decided to do this now, so that I end this once and for all.
First of all, let me paint a picture for you and you let me know what makes sense to you. When I looked up the word snatch or steal, ehh, let’s go to the dictionary. It means, forcefully taking something away from its original position. Forcefully. From its original

General Godwin Alabi-Isama has blasted Chief Olusegun Obasanjo over the contents of his recently released book, “My Watch,” saying it is an embodiment of lies. Read his explosive response to Obasanjo below, via SaharaReporters.
''I'm gravely pained to be trading words with General Olusegun Obasanjo once again on the history of Nigeria-Biafra War. He is an elder and a former ruler who, ordinarily, should be treated with utmost respect. But how can one genuinely respect an old man who tells lies like a badly raised child?
Obasanjo has obviously not recovered from the shock inflicted on him by my book, The Tragedy of Victory in which I exposed the tissues of lies in his civil war memoir, My Command. It is said that a lie may travel for a thousand miles, but it takes just one step of truth to catch up with it.
I’m alive to stand up to him on the lies he has told on the war because I was a major
