  • It was gathered that neigbours alerted the police from the Agbado division to the incident and Babatunde was arrested.[Image: Son%20kills.JPG]
    One Babatunde Olagesin is currently cooling his heels in police custody after he allegedly hacked his father, Taiwo Olagesin, to death with a cutlass.

    City Round learnt that a fight broke out between the father and son on Monday, May 6, 2019 in their residence in the Ijoko area of Ogun State.

    It was gathered that the suspect had wanted to leave home for Oshodi, Lagos State, around 6am, but was prevented by his father, who insisted that he (son) would accompany him somewhere.

    Our correspondent learnt that Taiwo locked up the doors leading outside the premises to keep his son inside.

    When it appeared he could not restrict his son, Taiwo reportedly brought out a cutlass to scare him.

    Undeterred by the weapon, Babatunde was said to have struggled to collect it from his father. In the process, he reportedly used the weapon to cut his father in the stomach.

    It was gathered that neigbours alerted the police from the Agbado division to the incident and Babatunde was arrested.

    A police source disclosed to City Round that the suspect in his statement claimed to have killed his father by accident, adding that the case had been transferred to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department in Eleweran, Abeokuta.

    The source said, “The boy had a misunderstanding with his father. He said he wanted to go to Oshodi to ‘hustle’ (make money), but his father said he needed to follow him somewhere. The suspect claimed that his father brought out a cutlass to scare him and locked the doors leading outside.

    “They started struggling with each other to get hold of the cutlass. He claimed he did not know when the cutlass pierced his father’s stomach. Before people could separate them, the father had slumped and started bleeding. He gave up the ghost before he could get medical care at the hospital. The suspect was about 30 years old.”

    The deceased’s neighbours approached by our correspondent declined comments on the incident, saying the matter was being investigated by the police.

    But a resident, who gave his name only as Seun, said the tragedy could have been averted if Babatunde’s mother was at home that day.

    He said, “I was not around when the incident happened. It was when I returned from work in the evening that I learnt about it. From what I learnt, he always had problems with his father. His mother who usually cautioned him was not at home on the day the incident happened. The father had asked him to follow him somewhere but he insisted that he was going to Oshodi to work, which led to a fight. He hacked his father to death with a cutlass.”

    The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident, adding that the case would soon be charged to court.

  • There are ways to subdue suicidal thoughts that can move you away from hurting yourself and getting your life back on track.[Image: Suicide2.JPG]
    The rate of depression and suicide has been on the rise in Nigeria in the last few years. Suicide has now become a way out of the challenges of life. No one can truly understand the feeling, and for those that have the thoughts, it can be very difficult to deal with.
     
    However, suicide should not be the last resort, even though it could seem like a relief from unbearable pain and misery.
     
    Luckily, there are ways to subdue suicidal thoughts that can move you away from hurting yourself and getting your life back on track. It is not an exact science, but we have spoken to professionals, and these are ten ways to deal with depression and suicidal thoughts.
     
    1. Talk to Someone
     
    Never feel like you are alone. Reach out to friends and family members you trust and tell them exactly how you feel. If you can’t access family members, there are call help centers and organizations like MentallyAwareNG that you can also call and tell your problems, and help will be sent to you.
     
    2. Stay away from any thing that you could use to harm yourself
     
    When you begin to develop these suicidal thoughts try and stay away from any potentially harmful object or substance, whether knife, poison or sniper.
     
    3. Seek help from a counsellor
     
    There are those who are professionally trained to offer help in these type of situations, reach out to one and relay how you feel exactly. These counselors will guide you on how to get rid of the depression and suicidal thoughts.
     
    4. Seek religious help

    Churches, mosques, or any religious house often offer counseling and help in these situations. If you are religious, reach out to your pastor, imam, guru, etc., let them help you .
     
    5. Find a distraction
     
    Try as much as possible not to stay idle. Go out as much as much as you can, go out with friends and have a good time. Staying at home alone will definitely rekindle and aggravate those suicidal thoughts. Hence, when your mind is distracted the thoughts of taking your life will gradually fade away.
     
    6. Suicidal thoughts are just thoughts.
     
    Some will argue they’re not just thoughts, but for the purpose of fighting it, convince yourself that they are just thoughts, and you do not have to act on them. Let them continue to remain thoughts and do not let them overshadow you.
     
    7. Get a good amount of sleep
     
    Sleeping and resting regularly is very important in these type of situations. When you begin to feel that all hope is lost and the thought suicide as a last resort begins to creep in, sleep tends to disappear. Try as much as possible to get some sleep; force it if possible, so that your mind can be at rest.
     
    8. Avoid alcohol and drugs
     
    Alcohol and drugs might seem as a quick fix to get your mind off your problems, but they actually do more harm than good. They won’t make your problems go away, and can change the way you feel, think or behave in negative ways. Alcohol and drugs might even drag you deeper into depression.
     
    9. Seek medical help
     
    Seek urgent medical attention, especially with regards your mental state. Sometimes depression and suicidal thoughts might occur as a result of a recurring mental disorder that could be hereditory or caused by trauma from a bad experience. Try and see a psychiatrist/doctor to know your mental state and to get the necessary help. Treat your mental health like your physical health, because it is just as – if not more important.

    10. It isn’t the end of the world
     
    No one can truly understand how you feel. As helpless as you may feel, always remember that there is a future ahead filled with possibilities. Draw inspiration from famous people who have failed and still made it. Always remember that suicide is not the best option.

  • According to him, Biafrans are going to sit at home on 30th May to remember and honour over 3.5m Biafrans killed by Britain through Nigeria.[Image: Nnamdi%20Kanu.JPG]
    Nnamdi Kanu
     
     
    Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has declared that anyone who refuses to sit at home on May 30th deserves to be stoned to death.

    Nnamdi Kanu expressed his grievances that the Nigerian Government passed a bill recognizing June 12 as Democracy Day in honour of MKO Abiola but turned against the remembrance of millions of Igbo killed during the war.

    According to him, Biafrans are going to sit at home on 30th May to remember and honour over 3.5m Biafrans killed by Britain through Nigeria.

    Nnamdi Kanu revealed this in a live broadcast from London, on Thursday, saying: “They passed a bill today to recognise and honour June 12 because of one man, then turn against IPOB for honouring 6 million victims of genocide and those that fought to save those of us who are alive today.

    “They must be mad and insane. Anybody who fails to sit at home on May 30th deserves to be stoned to death.

    “Now the same band of God forsaken Fulani slaves in our midst is telling us not to honour over 3.5 million victims of genocide and the brave men that fought to keep us alive.

    “What a bunch of soulless evil men? They are telling us not to honour our own people because an Igbo man or any Biafra for that matter is not worthy to be honoured in Nigeria.

    “These are the same people whose politics of acquisance and compromise put us in the mess IPOB is trying to fix today. We must send a clear, unambiguous message to these Fulani slaves in our land that we must honour our brave fathers and mothers that fought for us.

    “We are going to sit at home on 30th May to remember and honour over 3.5m Biafrans killed by Britain through Nigeria”.

    Murtala Muhammed International Airport
     
     
    Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika, has revealed that the Federal Government has concluded plans to pull down the Murtala Muhammed International Airport to construct another one.

    He said the project would be handled by Julius Berger at the cost of N14b.

    He stated that the terminal in use which was built in 1979 has outlived its usefulness.

    The terminal was built to handle 300,000 at inception but the passengers it handles has grown to 8 million in the past three years.

    Also, the government said it will shut the Enugu International Airport for total repair of the runways which is caving in.

    Ethiopian Airlines which operates into the airport would be stopped because of the danger the airport pose to flight operations.

    The Minister said he had discussed with the Enugu state governor of the need to relocate the market located very close to the airport and the free trade zone to make for expansion of the runway and other facilities to international standard.

  • A former NNPC worker who killed his daughter's love has been condemned to die by hanging for committing the heinous crime.[Image: NNPC%20-%20worker.jpg]
    According to a report by PM News, the Appeal Court sitting in Calabar, Cross River State, has affirmed the decision of a High Court that sentenced a former employee of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Godwin Elewana, to death by hanging for murder.
     
    Elewana, in suit Number CA/C/278C/2018, had appealed against the ruling of the Calabar High Court, which sentenced him to death for allegedly shooting to death a 22-year-old student, Douglas Ojugbo, said to be the boyfriend of his daughter.
     
    Delivering the judgement, Justice Y. Ninpar, on behalf of three other judges of the Appeal Court, said, “The court, having gone through all the evidence and addresses by counsels for both parties, finds the judgement of the lower court credible and therefore valid before the law.”
     
    The presiding judge of the High Court in Calabar, Justice Ukpa Ebitam, had said in his ruling that the prosecution team, led by Mr. Eneji Amajama, a Deputy Director in the Department of Public Prosecutions in the State Ministry of Justice, proved its case that the accused committed the crime.
     
    He made reference to the several confessional statements, hospital reports and exhibits presented during the trial as reasons why the accused was convicted.
     
    He had stated, “The prosecution team also proved the second ingredient of the murder, which was the intentional act. To have fired the victim twice with his pump action gun, I agree that the killing was intentional and I hereby find the accused person guilty of murder.

    “Subject to Section 319 of the Criminal Code of Cross River State, any person who commits murder is sentenced to death by hanging.”

  • There are certain steps to take to examine your breasts by yourself in order to detect cancer early. These are some of those steps.[Image: Breast-Exam-Self-Examination.jpg]


    It is advisable to do breast self-examination regularly so as to detect cancer early to be treated successful. While no single test can detect breast cancer early, doctors advise doing breast self examinations with other screenings to reduce the chances of breast cancer.
     
    Here is how to do breast self-examination:
     
    1. Start by looking at your breasts in the mirror with shoulders straight and arms on your hips.
     
    Look out for the size, colour and shape of the breasts. If they are unevenly shaped, distorted or swollen,  visit your doctor. Also, a nipple that has changed position that is red  sore or has rashes needs medical attention.
     
    2. Raise your arms and look out for the same changes.
     
    3. While looking at the mirror, look for any signs of fluid(watery,  milky, yellowish or bloody)  coming out of one or both nipples
     
    4. Feel your breasts while lying down. Use your right-hand to feel the left breast and vice versa. Use a firm, smooth touch with the first few finger pads of your hand.  Keep the fingers flat and together. Use a circular motion, about the size of a quarter.
     
    Cover the entire breasts from the to bottom, side to side, also from your collarbone to the top of your abdomen, and from armpit to your cleavage.
     
    5. Finally, feel your breasts while you are standing or sitting. Many women find that the breasts is when their skins are wet and slippery so they have a bath. Cover your entire breasts, using the same hand movements described in 4.

  • All seems to be unwell with the rumoured marriage between 22-year old actress Regina Daniels and billionaire businessman, Ned Nwoko.[Image: 2282072663350555586]



    [Image: nedd.JPG]
    Regina Daniels and Ned Nwoko
     
    As expected, there is hardly peace in any polygamous home especially one in which money flows like the river. This makes the stakes very high with the key players trying to grab large chunks of the cash flow.
     
    Regina Daniels who is the 5th wife of the 59 year old politician and businessman, Ned Nwoko posted 'Legit' on her Instagram and this attracted the response of her Moroccan senior colleague, Lina Ned Nwoko.
     
    She blatantly accused Regina Daniels of using black magic to jinx Nwoko. She also alleged that Regina had rejected her foods while being unable to cook hers.
     
    "Keep using Budoo on my husband, there comes an end date where u shall be disgraced soon," she said in her first comment.
     
    Then she added; "What is legit? Voodoo not legit, you can't even cook yet you complain my cooks are serving you white man's meal...Soon you will b replaced, this charm will fade off"
     
    Her attacks on Regina attracted the response of one of the sons of the Delta State Senator-elect named Emzy Ned Nwoko. Emzy urged Lina to hold her cool as he would speak to her on getting home.
     
    Read how the drama played out below:[Image: dnnn1.JPG]
    It would be recalled that Regina has been rocking the bank accounts of Nwoko since the marriage was announced. She has bought a mansion for her mom and also announced the acquisition of about four exotic cars.
     
    She has also made a trip to Dubai, United Arab Emirates and has been granted unfettered access to the luxurious vehicles of Ned Nwoko.

  • The Director, Public Affairs Department, National Population Commission, has explained why Nigerians should obtain the death certificate of their loved ones.[Image: death-certificate.jpg]
    Death certificate
     
    Mr Mohamed Isah, the Director, Public Affairs Department, National Population Commission, has urged Nigerians to always obtain death certificates for their deceased ones.
     
    Isah gave the advice during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday in Abuja.
     
    He explained that death certificate was another platform of updating the country’s population, saying that it is as important as birth certificate.
     
    He said the certificate provides demographic records to the commission, which it analyses and disseminates as data for public consumption.
     
    According to him, death certificate is important because it states the cause of death as well as age and time the death occurred.
     
    Isah noted that it also helped in informing the populace that a particular cause of death was endemic.
     
    “With the information gathered, we can tell Nigerians that a particular ailment has been causing deaths.

    “It can also help the government plan as well as intervene in order to prevent future deaths.

    “Death certificate also gives a next of kin the right to get or collect the deceased entitlements,” he said.
     
    Isah further said that death certificate also helps in gathering information on infants and maternal mortality, epidemics and endemics as well as keep track of diseases.
     
    The director explained that when the practice of collection of death certificate becomes a norm, it would no longer be necessary to conduct census, because the records would have been up to date at any particular material time.
     
    “Nigerians find it difficult to collect death certificate if there is nothing to inherit from the deceased.

    “But it is not about inheritance; the information gathered from cause of death is key.

    “Like in Kaltungo town in Gombe State, snake bite is a major cause of death in that town and with that information, government was able to intervene,” he added.
     
    Isah, therefore, appealed to Nigerians to always obtain a death certificate to assist the commission in its statutory role of data collation and analysis.

  • CCTV footage showing how a minister of God killed himself by hanging will be made public according to the church.[Image: aro5.jpg]
    Michael Arowosaiye
     
    Shepherd House Church, Apo, has promised to release details of how its minister, Michael Arowosaiye, committed suicide on Tuesday, Daily Post has reported.
     
    The report claimed that Michael reportedly left RCCG two years ago to Shepherd House Church, Apo Abuja, where he served as a worship leader.
     
    He was said to have taken his own life following financial issues and the inability to pay his house rent.
     
    But Speaking to DAILY POST a source close to the church who craved anonymity said available facts showed that the deceased owed no rent as alleged.
     
    He said a CCTV footage detailing how Michael committed suicide was in possession of the Police, adding that the church would call a press conference to speak on the issue on Saturday.
     
    He said, ”Facts from Mike’s death reveal that he never owed anyone some rent. He lived with an RCCG member at Sunnyvale estate and there is a CCTV footage that detailed how Mike ended his life at 4:33 pm on the said day.

    ”The church’s lawyer, who also knew Mike very well, in the company of a police commissioner watched the CCTV video and he has a lot to share with you. Meanwhile, the church is considering calling for a press conference to have questions from the media.
     
    Meanwhile, a member of the church had earlier on Friday told DAILY POST that Michael’s accommodation was sorted out by the church, adding that Michael was only suspended two months ago by Shepherd House Church over unholy relationship with some ladies in the church.

  • The Ekiti state government has nullified the employment of 2,000 people who were appointed by the ex-governor, Fayose.[Image: Fayose-and-Fayemi.jpg]

    Fayemi and Fayose
     
    According to Punch Metro, the Ekiti State Government has declared as null and void, the appointment of over 2000 workers employed into the state workforce by former Governor Ayodele Fayose after the July 2018 Ekiti Governorship Election.
     
    Commissioner for Information, Muyiwa Olumilua, who said the state government decision which sacked the workers followed submission of the Report of the Committee set up by the state government to review the irregular appointments made into the Public Service between 2014 and 2018.
     
    The over 2000 workers were employed after Fayose’s Peoples Democratic Party lost the governorship election to the All Progressives Congress.
     
    Olumilua, who addressed journalists on Thursday on the outcome of Wednesday’s State Executive Council meeting, said the affected workers, who had been warned earlier against participation in Fayose’s last minute appointment exercise, could participate in the next recruitment.
     
    He said that the governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, had directed the Head of Service, Ayodeji Ajayi, “to collate all available vacancies in the civil service, with the overhead implications to enable the state government to prepare to recruit suitable and qualified Ekiti citizens into the public service, irrespective of the party affiliations”.
     
    Olumilua, who reeled out reprieve for some workers, said officers dismissed during Fayose’s tenure in ministries of Justice; Environment; and Works; State Internal Revenue; Hospital Management Board; Teaching Service Commission; and SUBEB should go to the Office of Establishment to ascertain their current status.
     
    He added, “The 169 officers recruited in 2014 but had their appointments terminated by the Fayose administration shall be considered for reabsorption by the House of Assembly Service Commission but on a case-by-case basis.

    “The officers reinstated into the Local Government Service Commission between October 16th 2014, and October 15th 2018, are to be reabsorbed by the relevant personnel boards and migrated to biometric payroll with immediate effect.

    “All 272 officers employed by the Fayose administration, who are still on manual payroll, shall be considered for absorption into the civil service but on case-by-case basis,” he said.
     
    The Chairman, Trade Union Congress, Sola Adigun, who said the labour union would meet the Head of Service on clarification on this issue, added “We will hold Fayemi by his words. He had said there would be no vendetta or victimization.

    “We plead for mercy on behalf of these workers. The punishment for the mistakes of the past government should not be meted on these innocent Ekiti people. We want government to look into the plight of these workers,” Adigun said.
     
    But Fayose, who said Fayemi administration’s decision to sack the workers was wickedness and political vendetta promoted to the peak, urged victims of the action “to place their hope in God and enforce their rights to seek redress in the court of law.”
     
    Fayose’s spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, said in a statement that “Fayemi had only succeeded in writing his name in the history books of Ekiti as one who inflicts pains and sorrow on the people”.
     
    He said, “Fayemi has only demonstrated the wickedness in his heart by sacking Ekiti sons and daughters who were duly employed by the state government. It will be on record that the PDP government of Fayose gave jobs to over 2,000 unemployed youths in Ekiti while the APC government of Fayemi sacked them”.

  • A man has been sentenced to die by hanging for shooting dead the boyfriend of his daughter in Cross River State.


    An Appeal Court sitting in Calabar, Cross River State, has affirmed the decision of a High Court that sentenced a former employee of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Godwin Elewana, to death by hanging for murder.

    Mr. Elewana in suit No. CA/C/278C/2018 had appealed against the ruling of Calabar High Court which sentenced him to death for allegedly shooting to death a 22-year old student, Douglas Ojugbo, said to be the boyfriend of his daughter, in March 2015.

    Reading the ruling of the Appeal Court on behalf of three other judges, Justice Y. Nimpar said, “The court, having gone through all the evidences and addresses by the counsel to both parties, finds the judgement of the lower court credible and therefore valid before the law.”

    The presiding judge of the High Court in Calabar, Justice Ukpa Ebitam, had said in his ruling that the prosecution team, led by Mr. Eneji Amajama, a Deputy Director in the Department of Public Prosecutions in the state Ministry of Justice, proved its case that the accused committed the crime.

    He made reference to the several confessional statements, hospital reports and exhibits presented during the trial as reasons the accused was convicted.

    “The prosecution team also proved their second ingredient of the murder which was the intentional act.

    “To have fired the victim twice with his pump action gun, I agree that the killing was intentional and I hereby find the accused person guilty of murder.

    “Subject to Section 319 of the Criminal Code of Cross River State, any person who commits murder is sentenced to death by hanging,” Ebitam had ruled.

  • Fayose called on all the affected civil servants not to be disillusioned, but to approach the court to challenge the State Government's decision.[Image: Fayose.JPG]
    Former Ekiti Governor, Ayo Fayose, has described the revocation by Gov. Kayode Fayemi, of appointment of 2,000 workers by him shortly before leaving office, as “height of wickedness and political vendetta.”
     
    Fayose called on all the affected civil servants not to be disillusioned, but to approach the court to challenge the State Government’s decision.
     
    In a statement by his spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, on Thursday in Ado Ekiti, the former governor said that sacking people duly engaged in the service by a duly constituted government was most unfortunate.
     
    The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the state government on Thursday announced the cancellation of 2000 appointments carried out by the Fayose-led administration in October 2018.
     
    The government declared that their recruitment did not follow due process and was politically lopsided to give undue advantage to the cronies of the former governor. Fayose, however, said that the incumbent governor, by the action, had succeeded in writing his name in the history books of Ekiti as one who inflicted sorrow on the people.
     
    “He has demonstrated this by sacking Ekiti people who were duly employed by the state government. “Whoever that applauds this show of wickedness will be reminded in future when actions of Fayemi will also be reviewed.
     
    “As for those who have now become victims of this act of wickedness and political vendetta, they should enforce their rights to seek redress in the court of law,” he said. Also reacting to the development, the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in a statement, described the action as “insensitive, ungodly and anti-people.”
     
    The statement issued on Thursday in Ado Ekiti was signed by the Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Jackson Adebayo.
