Quote of the day - from Seun Kuti

Man mistakenly shoots and kills masked son

A US man mistakenly shot dead his 15-year-old son while investigating what appeared to be an attempted burglary at his sister's house next door. Jeffrey Giuliano opened fire on a masked teenager outside his sister's house when the person came at him with a knife.

According to police, the father was called by his sister, who lives next door, at around 1am on Friday when she heard someone outside her home and believed they were attempting to break in. The popular fifth-grade teacher confronted the person wearing a ski mask, black clothing and holding what appeared to be a knife. As the person lunged at him with the knife, Guilliano fired his gun.

Police later told him after removing the mask that he had killed his adopted son Tyler (pictured above). No charges have yet been filed in the case.

Controversy trails Actors' Guild of Nigeria election


The Chairman of the Actors Guild National Electoral Commission, Ayo Emmanuel, sent out a press release claiming Emeka Rollas won the 7th AGN elections beating actress Ibinabo Fiberesima with 81 votes to 76. Then I got a call from Ibinabo's people insisting that she won the election and not Rollas. I then called Ayo Emmanuel to get confirmation and he insisted that Emeka Rollas won the election. He said the result of the Ondo and Niger state chapters were suspended for manipulations and Abuja chapter was also suspended for multiple voting.

Now I'm getting pictures from Ibinabo's people which they say are pictures from her swearing in as AGN president.

Me I don't know what's going on o...but let's wait and see how this plays out. For those of you who give a shit! Lol

Qatar Airline Makes Emergency Landing in Lagos

Qatar Airline flight 592 from Doha to Lagos made an emergency landing a few minutes ago at the Murtala Muhammed International airport, Lagos. The pilots discovered midair that one tyre had low pressure, making landing difficult. They radioed our airport for emergency precaution and a vehicle to tow the plane from the runway to the gate.

The best part was, more than 95% of the passengers didn't even know anything was wrong until the plane landed and they saw fire service and National  Emergency Management Agency all around. One of the passengers tweeted that it was a smooth landing so was surprised that they even had issues.

The plane has been slowly towed to it's landing spot at the airport. We thank God

Arik Air overbooks flight; 16 people standing inside plane. Haha

This is going on right now at Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos. I'm getting info from passengers on the plane. Apparently Arik Air overbooked their Lagos-Benin flight by 16 people..and all sixteen passengers have refused to come down. Passengers have been at the airport since 6:30. Flight was initially supposed to take off at 7:30, then delayed to 11am. It was eventually boarded at almost 12 with 16 people more than available seats. The Arik Air involved is the one you see in this photo - the John Paul 2. No passenger is leaving and the plane is refusing to fly.

Lol. Naija! So Arik doesn't know when to stop selling tickets? Or they were hoping some passengers will not show up?

Nigerians are UK's 4th biggest foreign spenders

Article written by Susannah Butter for Standard UK

Every year, Simi Osomo (pictured above) makes six trips to London from Nigeria. The 25-year-old spends about two weeks here and every day she goes shopping. Today she’s at the boutique shop Matches Townhouse in Marylebone with a personal shopper. “When it comes to shopping and Nigerians, I can tell you it’s just what we have to do,” she tells me while admiring the patterned dresses.
For Nigerians, London is a shopping mecca. Visitors from the West African country are the UK’s fourth biggest foreign spenders, parting with an average of £500 in each luxury shop they visit — four times what UK shoppers typically spend. When I ask Osomo how much a two-week shopping trip in London costs she makes a bashful face. “Ooh, should I really be saying this? It depends, but most times about £5,000.”

Saudi Arabia Deports 683 Female Pilgrims

The government of Saudi Arabia yesterday Thursday September 27th deported another batch of 512 pilgrims to Nigeria, a day after deporting 171 women. 

The Saudi government detained and eventually deported these women who went to the country for the 2012 Hajj, because they were not accompanied by approved male guardians which they say is against laid down rules of their kingdom. Over one thousand Nigerian female pilgrims were detained at the Abdul-Aziz International Airport and King Fahd Airport in Jeddah and Medina before they started gradually deporting them into Nigeria via Kano and Sokoto airports

Nigerian government yesterday issued a 24-hour ultimatum to the Saudi authority to resolve the issue...or... Well, the ultimatum expired today and hundreds of pilgrims are still detained.

Davido acquires N140 million home in Lekki

And he's just 20. Damn! :-) The music star just acquired a property in Lekki Phase1. I mentioned N140 million because that was what the property was on the market for but I can't say for sure if that's what Davido paid for it. The acquisition of the house was concluded between yesterday and today. The house is close to where his father also has a house in Lekki. #bigboythings. Big congrats to him!
