10 Year Old Boy Who Works Menial Jobs To Feed His Blind GrandMother

image

Touching story i came upon an had to let you all on this story.

The boy lost both parents when he was just a nine-month-old toddler, and when he was four years old, his maternal grandmother who used to care for his, lost eyesight.

He now has to do various menial jobs to provide for the two of them.

Mrs. Margaret Ajayi, the grandmother, says Bakare’s late mother had a twin sister who lives in Orita-Obele in Akure with her own family.

What is more, younger and elder brothers of Bakare’s father live in Odo-Ijoka in Akure, but the elderly woman could not remember the addresses.

Family members, relations and friends of Bakare’s, after providing some assistance at initial stage, now ceased doing so.

The pupil of Saint Benedict Primary School, Akure, said that when it became evident that assistance would not come from their relations and friends, his grandmother adviced him to look for a job.

“Mama advised me to go out and look for menial jobs at food canteens so that the little money they give me will be used to feed both of us, but she advised me strongly not to steal anybody’s money.

“She weeps anytime I come back from school and tell her that I am going out again to look for what we will eat. She is always complaining that I am too young to be passing through this trauma.

“But I always reply her that I don’t have any option since my parents’ relations and families have abandoned me to my fate and I must survive and I don’t want to steal, so I do tell Mama to leave me and pray for me.

“If I don’t go home with money, Mama will not eat. Mama is blind and she cannot do anything. Sometimes, some people in our house pity us and give us food but not always.

“When there is no money and food, I find a restaurant and help them to wash plates, they pay me and give me food.”

The boy says he would sometimes beg for money, but he doesn’t always go far to bring his grandmother something to eat, “even if it is garri.”

When asked how he manages to go to school, he said an Akure-based human rights activist and lawyer Mr. Morakinyo Ogele is sponsoring his education.

“Daddy lawyer is the one that is helping me. He buys books and school uniform for me and gives me money. Most of the times, he is the one that gives me money that I take home to buy food for mama and myself.

“There are times that Daddy lawyer will not be in office, and we will be hungry at home. Times like that I just stay with Mama because there is nowhere to go and get money.”

Mr. Ogele, an indigene of Ikere-Ekiti, confirmed that he had been helping the little boy for about a year. If not for the aged and blind grandmother, he would have sought police permission to take custody of the boy for proper care.

The activist said he picked interest in the boy when he saw him where he was washing plates in a restaurant. Moved by the boy’s efforts, he decided to help the little boy by giving him money every day.

He also saddled himself with the responsibility of caring for Sehinde’s academic needs.

The Government should please do something about this.

Wife of Indian Minister Found Dead

image

The wife of Indian minister Shashi Tharoor has been found dead, following reports he had an affair, Indian media say.

Sunanda Pushkar is reported to have been found dead in a five-star hotel in Delhi, according to police sources.

The couple became embroiled in controversy over a series of Twitter messages on Wednesday Jan. 15th that appeared to reveal he was having an affair with Pakistani journalist, Mehr Tahrar.

They later insisted they were happily married, blaming “unauthorised tweets”.
Ms Pushkar admitted publishing the tweets, but later denied it.

Reports said that her husband had informed the police of her death. It was unclear how she died. Mr Tharoor married Ms Pushkar, a former Dubai-based businesswoman, in 2010.

Ms Tahrar, who denied having an affair with the minister, tweeted after she heard of Ms Pushkar’s death:

“I’m absolutely shocked.
“This is too awful for words. So tragic I don’t know what to say. Rest in peace, Sunanda.”

Mr Tharoor, a former UN diplomat, was forced to resign from his first ministerial position in 2010 amid controversy over his involvement in bidding for a cricket team. Ms Pushkar had allegedly received a free stake in the Indian Premier League franchise he was bidding for. Culled.

Baby Born after 20 Miscarriages

image

Kelly Moseley, from Birmingham, endured 11 miscarriages each at about eight weeks before she contacted a miscarriage expert she had seen on television.

Hassan Shehata discovered that Kelly’s pregnancies were being attacked by “natural killer cells” present in her body and decided to treat her with hydroxychloroquine.

Initially, Kelly continued to miscarry – including losing two babies at five months – before one year of taking the drug, she found out she was pregnant and Tyler was born in April 2013. He is now nine months old.

Kelly had been trying for a baby since 2002 when she married her husband Alan.
Even though all her family and friends begged her to stop trying after so many heart-breaking miscarriages, she refused to give up.

When she saw Mr Shehata interviewed about his work helping women who had experienced recurrent miscarriages, she was encouraged and made contact with him.

Eventually she was referred to the consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist’s clinic at Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust in Surrey.

Senegal Evacuates 46 Citizens from CAR

image

Senegal’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Mankeur Ndiaye, on Friday, said it had evacuated 46 of its citizens from the Central African Republic (CAR) to Dakar.

He said that the evacuation, conducted on Thursday night, was made possible with the collaboration of the Malian government.

Ndiaye said the exercise included 10 Malians but that Mali had earlier evacuated its citizens from CAR, which had been in the throes of internecine violence since last year.

The minister noted that the Senegal government had so far spent 14.5 million dollars in the process of evacuating 750 of its citizens from CAR.

Each of the 46 Senegalese evacuated from CAR received 207 dollars upon arrival at the airport, the minister added.

Sport: Neymar Out for 4 weeks due to Injury

image

Barcelona forward Neymar has been ruled out for three to four weeks after the club confirmed he has suffered an ankle sprain.

The Brazilian was supported off the pitch during Thursday’s 2-0 Copa del Rey win over Getafe after landing awkwardly on his right ankle during the first half.

Head coach Gerardo Martino revealed after the match the damage was not as serious as first feared , and further medical checks have since confirmed he will be sidelined for potentially less than a month, meaning he could be in contention to face Manchester City in the Champions League knock-out rounds.

“Tests performed on Friday confirmed that the player Neymar Jr. has a sprain in the peroneal tendon of his right ankle,” a statement on the club’s official website confirms.

“The estimated recovery time is three to four weeks.
“Neymar will certainly miss the next three Liga games against Levante, Malaga and Valencia, and the quarter-final of the Copa against Levante.”

Politics: President Yoweri Refuses to Sign Anti-Gay Bill

image

President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda has refused to sign into law an
anti-gay bill passed by the country’s parliament, which is aimed at
imprisoning not just homosexuals, but people who talk about it
without condemning the lifestyle.

The President in a letter to the Country’s parliament speaker said homosexuals are ‘abnormal’ but could be ‘rescued’ by improving the economy.

“Even with legislation, they will simply go underground and continue practicing homosexuality or lesbianism for mercenary reasons. You cannot call an abnormality an alternative orientation.

It could be that the Western societies, on account of random breeding, have generated many abnormal people.”

The Ugandan parliament passed its anti-gay bill in december 2013 going against the President’s advice and now seeks his assent

The President had initially advised that the homosexuality situation in the country be studied deeply and carefully before any laws against the practice be enacted.

The Ugandan anti-gay bill seeks to make all form of homosexual activities a criminal offense to be punishable under law.

Homosexuals can get as much as a life term imprisonment punishment. Also anyone who knows a homosexual and doesn’t report such to police authorities would also face some sanctions if found wanting.

Well, I’d say thumbs up Mr President but I guess he is just delaying it.

I do hope it is never in place Soviet can go sightseeing there someday.

Politics: President Jonathan replaces Military Chiefs

image

President Goodluck Jonathan replaced his entire military leadership on thursday after serious setbacks in the struggle against an Islamist insurgency, and he lost a close political ally who quit as crisis grips the ruling party.

The presidency announced the removal of the chiefs of defense, army, navy and air force and named their successors without explanation.

However, a source said President Jonathan wanted to score some visible successes against the Boko Haram sect, which is trying to create an Islamic state in northern Nigeria, before what are expected to be closely contested elections next year.

As President Jonathan asserted his military authority, top political ally Bamanga Tukur resigned as chairman of his People’s Democratic Party (PDP), which is in crisis largely over the president’s assumed intention to run for another term in 2015.

Armed forces chiefs appear to have lost their jobs over attempts to subdue the militants which are going badly.

On December 2 Boko Haram gunmen stormed the air force base and military barracks around the airport of the northeastern city of Maiduguri. The group was also suspected of being behind a car bomb in the city this week which killed 29 people and wounded dozens more.
“I think this is performance-related,” a security expert in Nigeria said.
“The security teams haven’t had a glowing record recently. The air force base attack was shocking.”

Boko Haram has waged a four-year insurgency which has killed thousands in the religiously mixed country of 170 million, and has become the biggest security threat in Africa’s top oil exporter and second largest economy.

Jonathan is also under heavy pressure politically. In December, former mentor and two-time Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo wrote a scathing letter telling him not to run again and copying it to two other ex-military leaders, Ibrahim Babangida and Abdulsalami Abubakar.

President Jonathan has not said he will run, but his supporters note that he has a constitutional right to. That has upset northerners in the PDP, who think he may violate an unwritten rule that power should rotate each two terms between the largely Christian south and mostly Muslim north.

The PDP has suffered defections to an increasingly powerful opposition. Announcing Tukur’s resignation to a party committee on Thursday, Jonathan suggested he had agreed to step aside to calm some party divisions. Tukur’s removal had been a main demand of Jonathan’s opponents within the PDP and may help to placate some.

Jonathan ordered a state of emergency and an intensified military surge last May in the northeast, where most Boko Haram attacks take place.

He was forced to extend emergency rule in November as troops struggled to contain the insurgents.

Politics: President Jonathan Signs Anti-Gay Bill

image

President Goodluck Jonathan

Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan has approved a bill banning gay marriage and same-sex partnerships that sparked international condemnation, his spokesman said on Monday.

“I can confirm that the president has signed the bill into law,”
Goodluck Jonathan’s spokesman Reuben Abati said, without specifying a date but adding that it happened earlier this month.

Abati said Jonathan signed off on the Same Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Bill 2013 because it was consistent with the attitudes of most people towards homosexuality in the west African nation.

“More than 90 per cent of Nigerians are opposed to same sex marriage. So, the law is in line with our cultural and religious beliefs as a people,” he added.

“And I think that this law is made for a people and what (the) government has done is consistent with the preference of its environment.”

Amnesty International urged Jonathan to reject the bill, calling it “discriminatory” and warning of “catastrophic” consequences for Nigeria’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Under the terms of the law, anyone who enters into a same- sex marriage or civil union can be sentenced to 14 years in prison while any such partnerships entered into abroad are deemed “void”.

It also warns that anyone who registers, operates or participates in gay clubs, societies and organisations or who directly or indirectly makes a public show of a same-sex relationship will break the law.

Punishment is up to 10 years in prison, it adds.

“Only a marriage contract between a man and a woman shall be recognised as valid in Nigeria,” the law states.

Nigeria is a highly religious society, with its 170 million people roughly divided in half between Christians and Muslims, though a significant number are also believed to follow traditional religions.

Now this has a bad appearance on the country + the amount of deaths waiting to happen and the injustice the People of this country will implore.

Nigeria is not civil enough to carry out such laws and that is the truth.

Health: Obamacare Shaky?

Now that more than 2 million people have signed up for private insurance plans created by President Barack Obama’s healthcare law, a crucial next check-up for the new marketplace will be to see how old customers are.

Early data from a handful of state exchanges shows the administration needs more young adults to sign up in the next three months to help offset costs from older enrollees and prevent insurers from raising their rates.

Critics of Obama’s Affordable Care Act say the market won’t attract enough young people to keep it financially viable, putting more pressure on government funds to compensate for any insurer losses.

Data from seven states and the District of Columbia, which are running their own marketplaces, show that of more than 200,000 enrollees, nearly 22 percent are 18 to 34 years old, according to a Reuters analysis.

The administration had hoped that over 38 percent, or 2.7 million, of all enrollees in 2014 would be 18 to 35 years old, based on a Congressional Budget Office estimate that 7 million people would sign up by the end of March.

“The whole insurance relationship is counting on them signing up,” said Dale Yamamoto, an independent healthcare actuarial consultant.

“Otherwise rates will have to increase.”
The picture from the initial state data is likely to change, since it mostly includes people who enrolled only through November, before a year-end surge of sign-ups for people wanting coverage effective Jan 1. Many experts speculate the early enrollees were more likely to be in urgent need of coverage, and therefore more likely to be older or sicker.

A recent survey by The Commonwealth Fund, a healthcare research foundation, found that 41 percent of those who had shopped at the various state marketplaces by the end of December were ages 19 to 34, up from 32 percent from an October survey.

One marketplace with current data, the District of Columbia, said on Friday that of the 3,646 enrollees in private plans through Thursday, about 44 percent are young adults.

Healthcare experts say many young healthy people may sign up only at the end of enrollment on March 31 to avoid paying the law’s penalty for not having
health insurance.

The Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, prevents insurers from charging people more if they have a health problem. Age is one of the few factors that can affect the price, with insurers allowed to charge up to three times more for a 64-year-old than someone in their early 20s.

But the healthcare costs for a 64-year-old on average are nearly five times as much as a 21- year-old, according to a study of claims from three large insurers Yamamoto conducted for the Society of Actuaries.

“The more that the marketplace is able to attract a broad mix of enrollees including the young and healthy … the more that costs will be sustainable and premiums will be more affordable,” said Robert Zirkelbach, spokesman for America’s Health Insurance plans, a trade group for insurers.

Other factors may be as crucial, if not more, in determining the stability of the new market, including the health status of enrollees, regardless of their age, and how that lines up with what individual insurers had projected. But those details will only become clearer later in the year based on the medical claims filed by the newly insured, making age the best early proxy about whether the
market is sustainable.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which oversees the marketplace for 36 states, has yet to provide any demographic data about enrollees. CMS is expected to release an enrollment report later this month.

Data may come sooner from insurers as they discuss their recent financial performance with investors in the next few weeks. Humana Inc said on Thursday that the mix of enrollment in its marketplace plans were likely to be “more adverse than previously expected. But healthcare experts say insurers need a better mix of enrollees than seen in the early data.

“If a quarter or more of the enrollees are young adults, I would think that’s an encouraging sign, particularly for the first half of the open enrollment period,” said Larry Levitt, senior vice president at the Kaiser Family Foundation healthcare think-tank.

By the end of March, “if it’s lower than that, I think there would be some cause for concern,” Levitt said.

Levitt and colleagues at Kaiser analyzed a scenario that they deemed “worst case” in which young adults represented 25 percent of enrollees.

They found that costs then would be about 2.4 percent higher, but insurers would retain a very slim profit margin. As a result, the Kaiser authors projected the companies would raise premiums by a commensurate amount, but not enough to destabilize the market.

Using the same data as Kaiser but different assumptions, Seth Chandler, a law professor at the University of Houston who specializes in insurance, said costs would be 3.5 percent higher, should only 25 percent of enrollees be young adults.

“If we see fewer than 30 percent of the enrollees being in that 18-to-34 age bracket, that’s a warning sign that there are problems,” Chandler said. “If the demographics come in poorly, insurers are going to lose money.”

Chandler is a skeptic of the healthcare law and writes a blog called “ACA Death Spiral.” Such a spiral is thought to occur if insurers facing higher costs raise premiums, so only very sick people buy coverage, leading to even higher premiums with the pattern continuing until the insurance market either disappears or shrinks to the point that it is not sustainable.

The penalty for not buying insurance increases significantly by 2016, which should bring in more young and healthy holdouts over time. Not everyone, however, is significantly concerned about the age of Obamacare enrollees this year.

Linda Blumberg, senior fellow at the Urban Institute’s Health Policy Center, said that Obamacare’s protections for insurers in the first few years means the program has time to get the demographics sorted out.
“That all combines to make me much less worried about the mix for this year,” Blumberg said. “I don’t think we have to get a certain percentage of enrollees to be below age 35 or this thing crumbles.”

Odd: Kenyan Mortuary in Shock as Corpse Wakes

image

Mortuary workers at Naivasha hospital ran away when the body of a young man stirred and was seen to be breathing.

Paul Mutora, who had tried to kill himself by swallowing insecticide, was pronounced dead on Wednesday night.

The chief medic said the drug used to treat him slowed the heart beat, which may have led to the mistake.

“This might have confused medical personnel, but the victim was saved before he could be embalmed,” Dr Joseph Mburu, the superintendent in charge of Naivasha District Hospital, was quoted by Kenya’s Standard newspaper as saying.

According to the paper, Mr Mutora’s father and other relatives visited the morgue on Thursday morning to view the body and then returned home to start funeral arrangements.

“But in the afternoon we were informed, he was alive and were left in shock,” the father said.

A witness told the Star newspaper that when noises were heard inside the cold room: “The mortuary attendant and a worker took to their heels screaming.”

Journalists photographed Mr Mutora later recovering on a male ward in the hospital in the lakeside town, 90km (55
miles) north-west of the capital, Nairobi, “This was a mistake from the start and I apologise to my father,” the patient said.

Heroic 14yr Old Dies saving his Friends & School

Aitzaz Hassan

Aitzaz Hassan

Aitzaz Hassan is now known as a Hero after he stopped a Suicide Bomber from getting into his School.

He was an average student from Hangu, a remote town in North Western Pakistan, but he has become a national hero.
Aitzaz Hasan, 14, stopped a suicide bomber from entering his school Monday and sacrificed his life to protect his fellow students.

“I saw Aitzaz trying to get hold of a guy and then there was a big explosion,” said Habib Ali, who is a senior teacher at the school.
The target of the bomber was the morning assembly of approximately 450 students, Ali said.

“He was an average student, but was a bold child,” the teacher said.

Today, in a statement Pakstan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif recommended him for the highest civil award for bravery.
“Shaheed Aitizaz’s brave act saved the lives of hundreds of students,” the prime minister said in a statement. Thousands of people thronged his home since the incident to praise his valor and to offer condolences to his family.

“He has left his family grieving, but has prevented many others from that fate,” said his teacher, a sentiment echoed by his father earlier. If it wasn’t for Hasan’s act of valor and quick thinking, the results would have been catastrophic.

Hasan is Pakistan’s latest student to become a hero for standing up to terrorists.

Malala Yousafzai was 14 and an outspoken advocate of educating girls when a Taliban gunman boarded her school bus and shot her in the head and neck. She survived and wrote a book “I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban” and has become a worldwide icon for her defiance.

Olusegun Obasanjo

The 2 time President of Nigeria calls it quit for the Peoples Democratic Party in a One-Page-Letter.

In a one-page letter, the chairman of ruling political party – Peoples Democratic Party, he says he ceases to be a member of the party withdrawing from activities in the local, state and federal levels.

Read it below;

    “While I believe that a good and truly national political party must be a microcosm of the nation in its membership, made up of all sorts of characters from near-saints to near-satan, I also believe that on no account should a known habitual criminal that is wanted abroad to face criminal charges levelled against him be extolled as a political leader in a respectable and wholesome nation-building political party.
    …has been so extolled in PDP in South-West geo-political zone which I personally find unsavoury. Politics played by any national political party must have morality, decency, discipline, principles and leadership examples as cardinal practices of the party. I have attached here recent documents that clearly indicate that your extolled PDP Zonal Leader in the South-West zone of Nigeria and an indigene of Ogun State is, to say the least, not a credit to the party as a member, let alone being a zonal leader.
    Since I stick in my practice of party politics to the hallowed and cherished principles enunciated above, I take this opportunity to let you know that while I continue to remain a card-carrying member of PDP, I cannot and I will not subscribe to a wanted habitual criminal being installed as my zonal leader in the party; a criminal for whom extradition has been requested by the US government. In the meantime, I will consider withdrawing my activity with PDP at local, state, zonal and national levels until the anomalous and shameful situation is corrected.”

Is this a ploy to undermine the Government further like Rueben Abatti earleir said?

just saying….

Art: Woman creates Twitter account to help solvebrother’s murder 34 years ago

image

Now this column Art is dedicated to people who show off exceptional ideas Where others wouldn’t.

Bill Comeans was murdered 34 years ago at the age of 14.
The crime was never solved, but his family has not given up hope of finding justice. In an unusual move intended to reignite interest in the cold case, Bill’s sister Kathleen Comeans has created a Twitter account written in the first person voice of Bill.

Bill died on January 7, 1980, near the family home in West Columbus, Ohio, reports 10TV.com .

Comeans, who was 9 at the time of her brother’s death, spoke to the station about her late brother.
Via 10TV.com:

“I can remember the night that we found out, the same feelings are there.” Her big brother Bill was found a block away from their West Columbus home, strangled with his own scarf. “He’s physically not here, but he’s still with us,” she said. “His memories are still with us.”

The Twitter account is both eerie and heartbreaking.

34 years ago today, I was murdered. I was 14 and had my entire life to live. My family is still looking for my killer.

— Bill Comeans (@BillComeans) January 7, 2014:
Some tweets are almost “normal,” as if Bill is just another good natured teenager playing around on the Web.
Some of my favorite things: playing the piano, drawing, hanging out with my family.

— Bill Comeans (@BillComeans) January 8, 2014:
Others serve as stark reminders. You killed me and got away with murder for 34 years. I know youre reading this. Its time. Confess. I forgive you. I forgive you. Bill

— Bill Comeans (@BillComeans) January 8, 2014:
“Planning for you future.” My homework project I never got to work on. Some murderer took my future.

pic.twitter.com/9zbDI3Qvt5

— Bill Comeans (@BillComeans) January 9, 2014:

Comeans told 10TV.com, “Whoever murdered him is out there, so somebody knows something, and Bill’s got a story to tell, and we’ll use whatever means to tell it.”

Now this is heart-breaking…take heart Kathleen.

Doyin Richards reasons to hater’s Comments about his Parenting Pic

image

Doyin Richards just wanted get his daughters ready for the day and he wanted his Mr. Mom situation documented to post to his Twitter and Facebook, because he runs a blog (Daddy Doin’ Work) detailing his adventures as a first time father.

What happened next was typical Internet hoopla, but Richards’ response to everything is what makes this story really special.

The photo is of Richards doing one of his daughter’s hair in the bathroom while the other one is strapped to his chest.

It’s really cute, and usually the Internet loves cute stuff! The photo went viral, and sure, tons of people commented about how adorable the scene was and laughed at the random silliness that parenting brings. But since it’s the Internet, the awful ones came out, too.

Richards blogged about some of the responses he got, which included things like:

“He probably rented those kids. They don’t even look like him.”

“OK buddy, cute picture. Now why don’t you hand the children back to their mom so you can go back to selling drugs or your bootleg rap CDs?”

“So do you do this for all of your illegitimate kids?”

“I’m sorry, but I can’t support a brotha who didn’t marry a black woman.”

“Look at this Uncle Tom. No chance he would be doing this if his kids were black.”

You know, the typical terrible things that Internet users like to say so Richards took to his blog to talk about the whole firestorm in a post titled
“I Have a Dream.”
He insists that most of the responses he gets are positive, but there are those out there who constantly look down on him and his role as a parent. Can you believe people made fun of him for this photo just because he was doing what certain folks would call “wifely duties?”

To be clear, we would never call it that. But some definitely would.

“Memo to the small pocket of male haters I have:
Why don’t you put big boy shorts on and get in on the revolution of good fathers? It’s not a good look to tear down dads for doing the work your wives wished you were man enough to do on your own,” Richards wrote.

“If you don’t believe me, just ask your spouses. They’ll tell you…I have a dream that insecure dads will spend less time hating on good dads and more time on getting their own s–t together.”

Other dreams he has after dealing with the Internet’s negative reaction to his photo:

-”I have a dream that people will view a man’s love for fatherhood for what it is instead of thinking there’s something “fishy” going on.”
-”I have a dream that people will view a picture like this and not think it’s such a big deal.”

Some Dreams, So Fathers listen up and put on your big-boy shorts.

Odd: 8year Olds write a guide to Falling in Love

Now if you think you know what it takes to fall in love, think again.

Author Ted Scheinman tweeted this napkin o’ knowledge, explaining it is “the best thing you will read all day: two of my sister’s 2nd graders on ‘how to fall in love.’”
Spoiler alert:
Falling in love requires all of the sex. All of it. Well, definitely more than you’d expect a grade schooler to know about.

The full guide:
1. First you stare at the person.
2. You get close to each other.
3. You ask for a date.
4. You go in bed and do sex.
5. When you kiss you suck and lick.
6. Get nacked [sic] in bed and do more sex.
7.
8. Go dance and put your noses together.
9.
10. Then kiss forever.
11. Take a shower together and kiss.
12. Give each other rings.
13. Go to the pool together.

Now, there were written by 8year olds. Imagine what people twice their aggressive would think.

Now I’m thinking, Nothing New under the Sun.

Pastor Fireman not guilty says Mother of the killer

image

The controversial Lagos pastor Sign Fireman had been arrested by Lagos police over the alleged ritual murder of a 12 year old girl, Bose Ogoja, after the girl’s killer, 18 year old Ikechukwu claimed he killed her following instructions from Pastor Sign Fireman some days ago.

The boy’s mother has spoken out and says his son has never met the founder and Head Pastor of Perfect Christian Mission.

Mrs Esther Egbo told reporters yesterday that they were members of the Badagry brand of Fireman’s church and in the two years they’ve been in the church, they have never set eyes on the man. She said her son had been arrested four different times by the police for attempted rape and had even been charged to court and was only released on December 10, 2013.

Mrs Egbo said:

“My son has been under as spell since 2009 when he was cursed by one of my neighbours in Badagry.
Sometimes, he suddenly sees young girls, grabs them and starts trying to molest them. He only behaves like that in the afternoon and the whole neighborhood knows.
In 2011, he was arrested after touching a 15-year-old girl inappropriately. Later, he was arrested for attempting to rape a 17-year-old girl.
Most times, it is residents that call to tell me that my son has been detained at the Badagry Police Station when I
am looking for him.
“In November, he did it again and was arraigned before a Badagry Magistrates Court for attempted rape and remanded in Badagry Prison for 19 days. He was released on December 10 after he was acquitted. It was three weeks later that he killed the little girl.
I asked him what happened that day and he said he was eating at one woman’s shop and saw the woman’s daughter pass. He stood up and followed the girl and dragged her into an uncompleted building where he killed her. He was caught as he attempted to run. He said something came over him.

“We even started a deliverance programme for him at the church and he never even met Pastor Fireman.
After his interview with journalists, I asked my son why he lied against the pastor and he said it was because he was threatened .”

The victim’s mother said although they attended Fireman’s church, they never met with him because as the General Overseer of the church, it was not always easy for members to see him at random.
She said her son did not even have Fireman’s telephone number and wondered where the supposed meeting he had with her son took place.
An aide to the pastor described the allegations against Fireman as ridiculous, adding that Fireman could not have stooped so low as to encourage a teenager to commit
murder.

“I have spoken to the boy (Ikechukwu) and he told me that he was coerced into saying what he said to the press. Pastor Fireman is a very rich man. What sort of money ritual would he want to do? His father owns a gold factory in Russia while his mother is a professor at ABSU. This is a man that has
distinguished himself.

Ikechukwu killed Bose in the Badagry area of Lagos State. When he was paraded before journalists at the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba, he said he killed the girl in an uncompleted building following instructions from pastor Sign Fireman.
Ikechukwu said,
“I attend Perfect Christian Mission Headquarters around Ketu Street, Aguda, but I live with my parents in Badagry. I just finished secondary school and I have been very broke. So, I approached the pastor, Sign Fireman, for money, but he told me that I should strangulate a little girl. He explained that while strangulating the girl, she would pass out faeces in the throes of death. The pastor said I should obtain
the faeces and bring it to him. He said if I could do this, he would give me N100, 000.”

The suspect’s mother says the boy later confessed to her that nothing of such happened and that the 12 year old only passed feces due to the rape and strangulation. She said the incident had nothing to do with ritual but a clear case of rape that led to murder.

Meanwhile, it was learnt that many church members had elected to give the pastor free legal service.
Fireman’s lawyer, Peter Oboyi, said the police had no evidence against the pastor adding that his client’s home had even been searched on Wednesday and no evidence was found.

He said,
“Pastor Fireman has over 100,000 members worldwide and does not even know one tenth of them let alone a small boy in the Badagry branch of the
church. The boy has even confessed to the police that it wasn’t the pastor that sent him to the dastardly act.

The allegations are frivolous and based on hearsay. If you want to send someone to kill another person, you will send someone that you trust, someone that wouldn’t give your name up easily.

How could pastor have done such?”

‘Burn Notice’ star Seth Peterson leaves Pregnant Wife of 12 years for 23-year-old girlfriend he met through Twitter

image

Seth n Gf

Embattled “Burn Notice” actor Seth Peterson has agreed to attend mediation in his divorce amid damaging reports he left his pregnant wife for a 23-year-old aspiring horror writer, well placed sources told the Daily News.

Wife Kylee Cochran, 39, filed for divorce last month claiming Peterson, 43, bailed on their 12-year marriage in September to shack up with new girlfriend Miranda Doerfler, TMZ.com first reported.

Ensuing reports focused on Doerfler’s incessant social media posts about the married, soon-to-be father of three – and Peterson tried some damage control.

“My wife has withdrawn her file for divorce and decided to mediate,” he wrote on Twitter Monday, calling the split “amicable.”
“What he stated on Twitter is not accurate,” once source close to the situation told The News Thursday. “What’s filed is filed.”
The source said Cochran, now seven months pregnant, is “definitely” moving full steam ahead.

Indeed, she’s the one who set up “multiple” appointments to meet with a mediator last year, hoping to reach a private and quiet divorce settlement, but Peterson “continuously cancelled,” sources said.

Cochran only filed her divorce paperwork Dec. 13 because she felt it necessary to get the ball rolling, the sources said.

When the filing went public, Peterson agreed to make mediation a priority and not miss another appointment.

“Hopefully he will follow through,” one source said, because Cochran’s “main concern is and always has been the safety, privacy and protection of (their) children.”
image

The couple married in 2001. They share a son, Lennon, and a daughter, Fenix.
Sources said Cochran doesn’t want a legal battle because she’d due to give birth in two months and needs to “keep the stress level down” to continue a “healthy pregnancy.”

Peterson announced his divorce on Twitter Oct. 15, and Doerfler retweeted the post.
The two met through Twitter while she lived in New York and corresponded for months, bonding over Peterson’s poetry and their shared love of zombies.
image

“Okay. Officially. Seth Peterson and I are a couple,” Doerfler wrote on Facebook Dec. 3.

“I thought he was married…Or is ‘was’ the operative term here?” one of her followers asked.

“Lol, yeah. Was,” Doerfler reply.

“As long as you are happy, that’s the most important thing to me and dad,” her mom wrote in reply to the Facebook
announcement.

“Thanks mom,” Doerfler replied. “That means a lot to me.”

Wow, even parents support this. I wonder what would have happened if it were her parents marriage that was under fire.
