Ugo Ozuah allegedly shot dead by police just 5days after his wedding

Ugo Ozuah was allegedly shot by men of the Nigerian police force in front of the UPS office on the Gbagada Express way on Thursday September 20th. He died early this morning at a hospital in Lagos. Ugo just got married last Saturday September 15th, 2012.

Details as to what really happened that Thursday night are sketchy but according to friends of the late
 businessman, he was at the expressway with another friend trying to flag down a taxi around 9 at night, when policemen pulled up and shot him twice in the chest at close range. They said he was not resisting arrest, he wasn't arguing with the police, he was not asked to identify himself, he was just standing there with a friend and got killed for no reason.

Sounds crazy to me! The IG of police has said the men that killed the newly married man were not policemen...but they were wearing police uniform, so who were they?

This is truly sad, and quite unfortunate! I can't even imagine what his wife would be going through now. Hopefully, Ugo's family will get justice for this senseless killing!

GEJ's special adviser on job creation promises to create 5, 000 jobs

Ms Josephine Washima is President Jonathan's Special Adviser on job creation. There's a special adviser on job creation? #ohok! Anyway, Ms Washima today at a news conference in Abuja, promised to create at least 5, 000 jobs for people who are qualified. What she said below...
Last week someone called me and was offering me 5, 000 job vacancies. We are going to have a website where people can upload their CVs. I don’t need to know you; I don’t need to know your face. Just go there, if you qualify for that job, apply for it and be sure that you will be called up for an interview.

'Igbo will vote Igbo, Yoruba will vote Yoruba' - Orji Uzor Kalu states

"In 2015, what will happen is that the Igbo will vote for the Igbo, Yoruba for Yoruba and Hausa vote for Hausa. Then, we will all come to Abuja to discuss and determine who should be Nigerian President… Anybody who thinks that there is going to be a straight ballot thing to produce the President in 2015 is only fooling himself." - Former Abia State Governor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu said this at the Professor David Ijalaiye annual lecture series which took place yesterday at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife.

What do you guys think of this statement? Nigerians are not that shallow and tribalistic, are we? We will vote because someone is from our tribe and not because we believe in that person? C'mon! Please share your thoughts...

Baby Kelechi's father squanders money raised for his treatment

In June 2012, I put up a post here asking you guys to help a little baby called Kelechi, - the little angel with a hole in the heart and paralysis on his left hand. (See the story HERE). Kelechi needed about N4 million for quick surgery in India and a lot of you came to his aid.

We were able to raise some money for the little boy, but the people in charge of the cause just sent me really bad news. The money was raised through Kelechi's father's account and what I hear now is that the man squandered the money...all of it!. He has been arrested and currently at Ikoyi Prisons pending when he's able to post N500k bail. The Commissioner of Police signed the petition against him through the PPRO's office. He will be charged to court soon.

I know what y'all are thinking; how's baby Kelechi? He's still sick, he has not been treated...and this makes me so sad. How a father can do this to his own sick child is beyond me. Truly sad. Will keep you guys updated about this case...

There's a Kanye West sex tape? Oh dear!

According to Radaronline.com, there's a Kanye West sex tape - with a married18 year old lady. Below is how the news site is reporting it...
Kanye West has a sex tape - with a Kim look-a-like! The tape is nearly 20 minutes long and appears to have been shot in a hotel room with an unidentified female who clearly states at the beginning of the video that she's 18 years old. The woman also confesses to Kanye that she is married and claims, "My husband and I don't have sex anymore… that's why I'm here!"
With her bodacious curves, dusky skin and long black hair the woman is a definite dead ringer for Kim Kardashian. RadarOnline.com has seen the tape in full and can verify without a doubt that it is Kanye in the footage and we have published a screen grab.

MI writes on the Rick Ross 'Hold Me Back' video shot in Nigeria

See what the rapper wrote on his website below and tell us what you think...
Does it make you angry? Does it rile you to see your country portrayed as poor and suffering and full of struggle? It burns you, does it not? To have some foreigner- who knows nothing of your history and pain, of the stories that flow within your blood- to have this foreigner come in and tell your story? Is it not the height of disrespect and insensitivity? Does it not chafe against the thick skin you have grown to cover your other wounds?

Mikel Obi deletes twitter account after racist abuse; Chelsea calls police

Mikel Obi today deleted his Twitter account after he was racially abused for 'costing' Chelsea victory in the opening match of their Champions League defence against Juventus yesterday Wednesday Sept. 19th.

The match ended 2-2 and Chelsea fans blamed Mikel for giving the ball away just ten minutes before time and also not preventing the equalizing goal. After the end of the game, Chelsea fans racially abused Mikel on his Twitter account @Mikel12Official, prompting the Super Eagles midfielder to delete the account which he set up just a few months back.

Chelsea said they have informed the police after being made aware of the racist Tweets. A statement read:
We've been made aware of racist tweets targeted at Mikel which are totally unacceptable, disgusting and abhorrent. We've informed the police and support taking the strongest possible action."
