Nkiru Sylvanus is one of the Nollywood divas that have not escaped the controversy hammer in their career.
It came as a surprise and shock to many when the news broke late last year that the light-skinned actress was allegedly getting married to Oge Okoye’s former husband.
But in a blackberry messenger chat with Saturday Beats recently, the actress chose to be evasive concerning the news but said, “I am not married.”
When reminded that the news in town was that she was getting married, the actress said, “Every single woman is about to get married.”
When asked if she was getting married to Oge Okoye’s ex, Nkiru said, “Call Oge and ask her.”

With the growing attention being paid to the military regime of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, facts have emerged on Thursday, January 29, 2015 that unknown to many, Bartholomew, the elder brother of popular Nollywood actor, Nkem Owoh (popularly known as Osuofia) was killed by the military regime of the 72-year old retired general.
According to Breaking Times, an unnamed source who did not want his name in print revealed that the then 26-year old Bartholomew was among three people – including 30-year old Lawal Ojuolape and 29-year old Bernard Ogedengbe – who were notoriously killed by firing squad on allegations of drug trafficking.
The widely condemned killing of the trio in 1985 was criticized because General Buhari back-dated a decree stipulating death sentence for

The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun while on a campaign visit to Tai Solarin University Of Education, Ijebu-ode on Thursday, 29th January was attacked by some angry students of the State-owned university who appeared not to have forgiven him over his numerous attempts to initially scrap the institution.
On his arrival to the institution, TASUED students on campus who became aware of his presence immediately trooped out in large numbers.
Initially, it appeared to the Governor and his campaign team the students had gathered to cheer them.
There was a wind of change when some students hurriedly brought out sachets water (pure water) and in a jiffy, it became a chorused act as other furious students joined in stoning Governor Ibikunle Amosun with various objects they could lay their hands on.
The Governor became ruffled before he was able to run to safety and quickly drove off with his convoy.
Before now, Amosun had been against the existence of the university, giving reason that two state universities were too much for his administration to handle. This led to various protests by students of TASUED, as well as the death of a student leader, Com. Tunji Fashina.
Also, Nigerian Universities Commission, NUC as a result of Amosun’s refusal to adequately fund TASUED delisted courses offered in the university from 48 to 23.
Just recently, Accounting course got delisted as a course in TASUED.
This development has left many students frustrated.
DAILY POST has gathered that TASUED Vice Chancellor, Prof. Oluyemisi Obilade is seen as an accomplice as she remains undisturbed with the various happenings in the school system.

A Nigerian doctor, Emmanuel Kanu (pictured above) who touched the breast of a vulnerable divorcee in her home days after she'd attempted suicide will be keeping his job after citing cultural differences.
Report from UK Daily Mail
Dr Emmanuel Kanu stroked her breast, repeatedly tried to kiss her and told her, 'You want it' when she tried to escape his clutches during the visit - which he hid from colleagues. When she later texted him to tell him to stop ringing her he withheld his number on the next call.
But Kanu, a married Nigerian father of one, has been allowed to keep his job by a fitness to practise panel even though the General Medical council called for him to be struck off.
He told the panel he had not molested the patient and claimed 'cultural differences' led to the visit on September 3, 2011, saying: 'There is a clear divide between the doctor and the patient here, which is very different in Nigeria.'
But the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service only suspended the 36-year-old for six months, despite finding he was guilty of sexually motivated serious misconduct.
Campaigners against violence towards women criticised the 'incredibly lenient penalty'. Nicole Westmarland, former chairman of Rape Crisis and Professor of Criminology at Durham University, asked 'what it takes for a doctor to be struck off'.
She said: 'This doctor has committed
Nigerian army relocates over 200 female soldiers from Maiduguri in anticipation of Boko Haram attack
According to a report by Sahara Reporters, the Nigerian military authorities are moving female soldiers based in various army formations in Maiduguri and other parts of Borno State to Abuja as the army anticipates a massive attack on Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, by Boko Haram.
The sources said there was heightened apprehension about an impending attack, hence the decision to reassign female soldiers to Nigeria’s capital. The military action also stemmed from the death of five female soldiers and the abduction of another four by Boko Haram militants when they attacked a military base in Baga a few weeks ago.
Following recent intelligence indicating that Boko Haram militants were strategizing on a fierce offensive to capture Maiduguri before the February 14 elections, the army moved more than 70 female soldiers last week.
One of our sources revealed that 146 more female soldiers had been moved to Maiduguri airport, where they are awaiting airlift to Abuja. The source said that all the female soldiers were
