UAE fines, deports woman for checking her husband's phone

A woman was fined and ordered to be deported from the United Arab Emirates after she 'breached her husband’s privacy by checking his cell phone to see if he was cheating on her.

The unnamed Arab expatriate was fined 150,000 dirhams ($40,843) by the criminal court in the emirate of Ajman, the English-language newspaper Gulf News said.

Her lawyer told the paper she had accused her husband of having an affair. She admitted she had accessed his phone without his permission and transferred photos to her device, the lawyer added.

The husband lodged a complaint with the court, which convicted her last week under a cybercrime law that penalizes “the invasion of privacy of another person” using information technology, the paper said.

It said the couple were in their 30s but gave no other information.

I got married as a teenager and I do not regret it - Kanu Nwankwo's wife, Amara

Married to Super Eagles’ Nwankwo Kanu, Amara talks about marriage, motherhood and her other interests in a new interview with Punch Spice:

  • You got married to one of Nigeria’s star players at 18. How were you able to keep the family and home together at the time?
Marriage is a growth process and I learn on a daily basis. I got married as a teenager. I was young. I think I jumped into the deep end and I simply went with it. It takes a lot of determination to keep things going because irrespective of your age, marriage throws a lot of curves at you. The main thing is being able to bounce back after being hit with a surprise or what you do not expect.

  • Did you harbour any doubts about your marriage?

The Niger Delta Avengers by Reuben Abati

Niger Delta Avengers is the name of a new group of militants in the Niger Delta who claim to be different from the former agitators and militants who operated between 2006 and 2009, largely under the umbrella of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND).

 The title of this group may well serve as the thematic and definitive umbrella for the resurgence of low-level insurgency in the Niger Delta, for in the last month alone, more groups have joined the NDA to wage war against oil installations, the Buhari government, and the Nigerian state. 
These include the Isoko Liberation Movement and the Red Egbesu Water Lions. The
