Haba Onyeka! Why now? - Patrick Doyle

Friday October 14 was not a very good day for me. I woke up and my attention was drawn to a very sordid article in a national newspaper as well as calls from colleagues all over the world directing me to various sites on the internet carrying the same sordid tale in which the well known singer, Onyeka Onwenu, had poured invectives on Chief Tony Okoroji, Chairman, Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) under whom Onyeka has served in different capacities for several years. 

I felt very bad because I know the facts in the matter which had been so badly twisted in the newspaper and internet stories to damage the name of a good man.

LIB Initiative

An idea just came to me and I wanted to share it with you guys and find out what you think. I was thinking of starting an initaitive/NGO, nothing serious...just myself and my readers donating to charities, orphanages, old people's home etc...

I want to call it Linda Ikeji Blog Initiative, (LIB Initiative), where we basically donate cash, goods and services as a group to organizations and charities. Obviously it's not for every LIB reader, just anyone who's interested in being part of this. I feel like we can make a difference. There are thousands of us here who can impact positively on our society and touch lives.

When we want to donate as a group to charities, some LIB readers will come with us, and those who can't will just make a donation (we will figure out the modalities later).

I also want us to take up cases of people who need money for life-changing surgeries, people who are sick and can't afford their hospital bills, dustbin children, rape, acid victims etc...

What do you guys think? Would some of you be interested? Or should I go and sit down with my idea and concentrate on my blogging? :-). It's just a suggestion, let me know what you think...

Missing Oghogho Esigie found

She was kidnapped and the kidnappers called her parents demanding for 5million naira. As the negotiation was going on, early hours of today, one of the kidnappers snitched on the rest of the gang and let her go. She is home now, as healthy as she left.

Thank God you are back home babe...all the best.

The Amazing Bad Belle of Onyeka Onwenu – Tony Okoroji

There's a battle currently going on between ace musician, Onyeka Onwenu and Copyright Society of Nigeria, COSON, boss, Chief Tony Okoroji over the N3 million donation made by the Cross River State Government to facilitate the burial rites of late Christy Essien-Igbokwe.

Onyeka Onwenu asked Tony Okoroji to give account of the N3m donation, in a letter she sent to the COSON boss and also published in the newspapers. Tony Okoroji has responded to the letter via the media. See it below...

The amazing bad belle of Onyeka Onwenu - written by Tony Okoroji
Onyeka Onwenu was never elected Chairman of the Christy Essien-Igbokwe Burial Committee. She is not Chairman of the sub-committee on finance. Throughout the burial activities, she was chairman of nothing and made little positive creative contribution towards the organization of the events that I can remember. Onyeka was never appointed auditor to the committee. 

Outrage over hit and run in China. Toddler ran over by two vehicles and ignored by passers-by

A video showing a toddler hit twice by vans and then ignored by passers-by is sparking outrage in China.

The 2-year-old girl, identified as Wang Yue, is in critical condition following Thursday's accident. State media on Tuesday quoted the Guangzhou Military District General Hospital as saying that the child is unlikely to recover.

A closed-circuit television video obtained by state media shows the toddler walking on a narrow market street when she is struck by a van. The 2yr old was left writhing in a street as roughly a dozen pedestrians, cyclists and motorists passed by inside a wholesale market in Foshan, a city in China’s southern Guangdong province, and no one bothered to help her. The girl was run over a second time by a light-duty truck before a trash picker finally picked her up.

The little girl had just returned from kindergarten, when her mother left her alone at the family’s hardware store to retrieve laundry, the China Daily reported.

Are the people in China mad? Every body that passed this child should be jailed. Watch the unbelievable video after the cut...but please warning, the video is very disturbing...don't watch if you don't have the stomach for such...
