Court Okays Release of Obasanjo’s Book, My Watch

A Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting in Apo, Abuja, has okayed the release of former President Obasanjo’s book: My Watch, for release.

Justice Valentine Ashi ordered ‎on the release of the book, which had been in the custody of the Nigerian Customs Service following an injunction he slammed late last year following a complaint by a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Buruji Kashamu.

However, the judge set aside the order of injunction on Monday upon an application by Obasanjo’s lawyer, Chief Kanu Agabi (SAN). ‎In doing so, the court barred the Nigerian Customs Service from collecting demurrage on the books for the period they had been in its custody.

Vanguard reports that the court upheld Agabi’s argument that the applicant, a Peoples Democratic Party chief in Ogun State, Buruji Kashamu, who is currently pursuing a N20bn libel suit against

Army Acquits 57 Soldiers Sentenced to Death in December

The Major Reason Why Married Women Cheat: Must Read

It has become a deafening lamentation of sorts from the menfolk, on the rising infidelity amongst ‘married women’. Some men even claimed that the women have toppled their male counterparts in the game of ‘cheating’.
I have been studying the issue for some time and what I detect as the root cause of rising infidelity amongst the married women in this society is ‘suppressed emotions’. Our men have carried their ‘it is a man’s world’ mentality too far. It has become an implied ‘you had be playing with fire’ (in this environment) not tolerate a man’s ‘marital excesses’ as a woman.
Women have been made to endure all sorts in the name of ‘staying married’ or risk being judged by the society and our men seem to be cashing in on this-as evidenced by the gross infidelity, economic irresponsibility, emotional and physical abuse(on the part of the men), which pervade most marriages. It’s almost like the women are tired of running from pillar to post for ‘solutions’ ,especially when all a woman seems to get wherever she looks for ‘solace’ is ‘You have no choice, try and manage’
The reality in marriages of these days is not what a lot of women bargained for and some of them (who are determined not to end up at psychiatric homes-due to emotional breakdown) have simply resorted to coping with the situation whichever way they deem fit.
It has simply occurred to a lot of women that ‘every woman can be admired’ (and it matters not her age, marital status, shape or size)… there will always be a man somewhere, whose interest that a woman can ‘tick’. This is not in any way justifying ‘infidelity’ (in any form) as I believe (absolutely) that a woman that is under the roof of a man has no business being entangled with another man. If the setting you call a marriage leaves you more miserable than happy, there is no need to continue living a lie-if you must remain in such a setting-only to be ‘peeping out’. I believe in being true to myself
Every man should realize that a woman he makes to feel cherished is the best thing that can happen to him. Such a woman will always go the extra mile in her walk with you. But a woman that you have scorned (via your attitude) will also prove to you that the devil does not live far.
I believe that the rising infidelity amongst the married female folk is a backlash of their failed expectations from the men…the hardest woman to seduce is one who is emotionally fulfilled!

Ex Militants Become Lawmakers in Rivers State

Some of the dreaded Niger Delta militants, who accepted the Federal Government’s Amnesty, have been elected into the Rivers State House of Assembly,

The late President Musa Yar’Adua had in 2009 signed a Proclamation granting Amnesty to Niger Delta militants, who agreed to lay down their arms and embrace peace.

The deal offered an unconditional pardon and cash payments to fighters who surrendered their arms and assembled at screening centers located in many parts of the oil-rich region within 60 days.
It targeted up to 10,000 militants whose attacks in the six Niger Delta states cost the country a third of its oil production and revenue.

The amnesty which came to effect on Thursday, August 6, 2009, saw militant commanders, including Government Ekpemukpolo, alias Tompolo, Sogboma George, Ateke Tom, Farah Dagogo, Ebikabowei Ben, alias Boyloaf, Kile Selky Torughedie, alias the Young Shall Grow; surrendering their arms and returning to normal life outside the creeks.

But based on the result of last Saturday’s election released by the state Returning Officer, Faraday Orumwense, a professor of Material Engineering, the ex-militants are among the 25 candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, who won the poll.
The ruling All Progressives Congress was only able to win a seat in the 32-members state legislature.
Citing widespread irregularities and violence, Mr. Orumwense declared elections in six state constituencies inconclusive.

PREMIUM TIMES can authoritatively report that among those who will be making laws for the oil-rich state are Farah Dagogo, an ex-general of a dreaded militant group.

Blog Reader Who Accidentally Killed a Child Needs help.

Hello Laila,
Compliments, my issue has to do with my younger brother(in his late 30s) who accidentally crushed his neighbour’s 2 year old(daughter) to death.  He reads your blog too. The father of the deceased girl is a very close friend of my brother and they all live the same block(of flats). According to my brother,he noticed that some kids in the block were playing and he felt that re-parking his car would give them ample space for play…so he decided to go park his car elsewhere-using a reverse. Unknown to him that his neighbour’s 2 year old was actually at the back of his vehicle(an SUV)…and the little girl got crushed. Even when the child minder(a 12 year old) was signalling him to move forward a bit,he thought that the kids were referring to their football,that may have been underneath his car. Nothing in the girl’s demeanour alarmed him that it could be something serious-his windows were wound up. It was when he came down from his vehicle that he beheld the worst day of his life. My brother has been so traumatized.His wife had just had a major surgery,they have been married for about 4 years and still believing God for the fruit of the womb. Although the parents of the deceased are still in grief but the father seems to have understood that it was not deliberate.
The problem now is that some neighbours are suggesting to my brother to leave the environment completely-to enable the healing process for the parents of the child and himself. My brother bought that flat about a year ago. He bought that house in order to start living in his own house and stop paying rent.  He confided in me that he is broke at the moment. Please advise us on how to handle this situation.
