Don’t Abort Pregnancies of Boko Haram’s Rape Victims – Bishops

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

ONITSHA: Man Shoots Dead GF After Her Parents Demanded Him To Pay Bride Price (Photo)

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.

If I Hear !!!! Halima Abubakar Claims to be 29 yrs Going 30

Star actress, Halima Abubakar has finally cleared the air on the controversy trailing her real age.

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.

Chinedu Ikedieze, KOK, Osita Iheme, Mama G And Others Head to Gambia (Photo)

As the country suffers another fuel scarcity surge and transportation becomes a luxury, the situation seems not to have held back our celebrities from their day to day events and activities outside the country.

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.

See The Massive Castle Naomi Campbell Hired To Celebrate Her Lavish 45th Birthday (Photo)

They say life begins at 40. And while there’s nothing notable said about turning 45, that didn’t stop supermodel Naomi Campbell hiring an entire castle to mark the occasion of her 45th.

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.

Blog Reader About to Dump His Fiancee Because of Sex Needs Guidance

Hello laila, my name is Edward. I read your blog and I need your help at the moment. I am engaged to be married to a woman i really love. the engagement is a few months old but I am developing cold feet.

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?

Alleged N5bn Bribe: INEC Boss Says his Life is in Danger

Austin Okojie
Governor Godswill Akpabio is known to be generous. He is said to be very free with money. And, consequently, money never constitutes a stumbling block whenever he sets to achieve something. This has won him accolades with regard to many of his achievements in his state.

But could he have parted with N5billion just to ensure his preferred candidate won the last governorship election in Akwa-Ibom State? Check out this scene in Uyo, the state capital last week:

According to Vanguard, it was an unusual and tensions-soaked meeting at the Akwa-Ibom State secretariat of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, along Udo Udoma Avenue, Uyo last Thursday and the agenda of the meeting was ‘Threat To Life’.

The Akwa-Ibom State Resident Electoral Commissioner-REC, Barrister Austin Okojie had summoned the staff including security operatives and Youth Corps members attached to the
