Her name is Mrs Jumoke Oyegbola and she's a  banker. On Tuesday march 6th around 9pm, while on her way to a friend’s house at River View Estate, Isheri North LSDPC, unknown gunmen blocked her Mitsubishi Montero car, shot indiscriminately into the air to scare people away,  then dragged her out of her car.

Okonjo-Iweala Confirms Large-Scale Fraud in Pension Fund

Finance Minister, Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala while appearing before the Senate’s Joint Committee on Public Service and Establishment yesterday, confirmed allegations of corruption in the management of pension funds. This corruption has caused unnecessary hardship for pensioners in Nigeria.

The minister explained that although the Pension Task Team was inaugurated before her appointment, she quickly ordered the freezing of the accounts the moment she learnt of allegations of sharp practices in the disbursement of pension money. She said her priority was to stop any fraud immediately.
“To understand what was really going on with police pensions, I asked KPMG, an independent and respected consulting firm, to investigate. Their findings confirm that many wrong things were done and are still being done in the management of the funds. I assure you all that we will take action after studying the recommendations." She said

Karrine Stefans' letter to her husband as she ends marriage. (Must read)

Ladies you all need to read this letter...as in, you won't believe some of the things you are about to read. Lol.

For those who don't know her, Karrine Stefans (pictured above) is a former video vixen, who was married to Darius McCrary (Eddie Winslow of popular 90s TV sitcom - Family Matters). The two divorced in 2011, and three months later, Karrine was married again, but this time, to an unknown dread-locked dude.

A few days ago, Ms Karrine posted a letter on her website to her husband. Read it below
Sometimes, in relationships, the pleasure is all theirs. Alone, I am a superhero. With you, I am a mere mortal. You deplete me. I’m tired of being your upgrade. We are not equally yoked. You really deserve someone more basic. I’m tired of pretending your mediocrity is okay with me. I’m tired of pretending I don’t miss G650′s. I’m tied of pretending you’re not a burden. I’m tired of pretending I don’t deserve a f-cking BOSS! I’m tired of you driving my car. Stop telling me you love me as if you’re doing me some sort of favor. I don’t need you to love me. I love me.
Please continue...

South Africa apologizes To Nigeria over deportations, blames airport health officials

I'm sure you've all heard. South Africa today apologized for the deportation of 125 Nigerians last week, who, according to airport health authorities, carried fraudulent yellow fever cards. Their statement below...
