A man who claimed to be an officer of the Nigerian Navy is currently enmeshed in what could best be described as a fraudulent marriage.
The man identified as Edward Benosa and who claimed to be attached to NNS Apapa, Lagos, wedded a lady (name withheld) in a Catholic church in Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State in June 2014 while his first marriage was still intact.
Edward, it was gathered, allegedly tricked the woman in question to foot the bills of the wedding after he reportedly showed her a post- dated cheque of N1 million with which he claimed he intended to refund the expenses incurred by the lady.
Sunday Sun gathered that the naval officer met the lady in 2013 through a friend and they dated until

|Ini Edo & Desmond Elliot at their Open University matriculation ceremony|
And today's word is titled ''Matriculation''. Read and be blessed, guys!
Oh what a great event in the university community. Matriculation marks the formal acceptance of new students into the university. Infact the importance of matriculation cannot be over emphasised considering the joy and splendor of becoming an undergraduate, having been selected out of a great number of people who desired it.
Matriculation is thus the celebration of a privileged few. But looking at it, are they truly privileged? For university education will come and go, every other thing in your existence will come and go as well.
There is however one thing that remains and that is we will outlive our earthly existence. This is eternal life. Or don't you know that there is yet a greater matriculation that will

After May 29, President Goodluck Jonathan will leave the Aso Villa. PUNCH's Simon Utebor was at the President’s Otuoke, Bayelsa State-country home where he is expected to retire to. The air around the sprawling estate, he says, is amazingly cool. Looking around, the answer to this quickly dawns on him. The estate is opposite a creek, and the rolling breeze keeps coming.
It is Otuoke, the home town of President Goodluck Jonathan. Otuoke is a small island community in the Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State. And there, the estate sprawls over a large expanse of land contrasting sharply with its rustic surrounding. It is said to belong to President Jonathan.

Photos emerged today of Tyga with a fan but more importantly, it was obvious Tyga was flaunting a new tattoo which was his 17-year-old girlfriend's name on his inner right elbow. Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ that Tyga got the tat yesterday to prove to Kylie she is the only woman in his life. Photos continue after the cut. Hmm. Lots of people think this is foolishness.
