A woman who was dragged into an alleyway and raped after a night out was subjected to a second horrifying ordeal by another man as she lay recovering from the attack.
Mustafa Yussuf was the first to prey on the woman as she walked through Manchester city centre on New year’s Eve, marching her into Church Street car park and raping her in a nearby lane.
After the assault the then 20-year-old fled the scene, leaving the woman helpless.
It was then that, instead of assisting her, another man pounced on the woman and raped her.
The distressing details of the double rape emerged as Yussuf, now 21, from Manchester, was jailed for seven years for the attack.
He claimed to have had a consensual encounter with the woman but denied rape.
For advancing to the semi-final stage of the CAF Champions League, Sunshine Stars of Akure will be given $665,000 (N104 million).
The Akure based clubside qualified for the semi-final of the continental competition after Etoile du Sahel were disqualified from the tournament for crowd violence.
That ‘advancement’ will only be temporary as they were knocked out of the competition on 4-3 aggregate by six-time winners, Al-Ahly of Egypt.
For the two finalists (Esperance of Tunisia and Al-Ahly), the winner of the trophy will receive a cash prize of $1, 425,000, while the beaten finalist will go home with $950,000.
The cash prize of the Champions League is just a little short of the $1.5 million paid to the winners of the Africa Cup of Nations.
It is not over until it is over! The dust has barely settled on Tonto Dikeh’s recently released singles, ‘hi’ and ‘itz ova’ than another more daring and controversial actress, singer and dancer, Cossy Orjiakor, is talking about dropping an album!
Unlike Tonto, Cossy has tried unsuccessfully in the past to cross-over from the movie to music world – she’s not new to the criticism and skeptism that comes with the territory.
The busty actress told E-Daily on phone that she would be doing an album launch come December 15, 2012 and plans to feature several notable acts.
“I am putting finishing touches to the album. I can assure you that the album launch would be on December 15th of this year at the Prest Boat Cruise, Lekki. The album is a 15-track album. I am still gonna do small tidying up and work with other acts and producers” she said.
Her singles from way back, “You Want Me” and “You and Me” will make the final cut of her 15-tracker album.
Well, we are waiting!!

A stadium full of screaming fans opened their hearts to Madonna and her music on Sunday in New Orleans. But to her political opinions? Different story.
Madonna, touring the U.S. in support of her latest record, "MDNA," was vamping for the crowd (on her birthday!) and brought up the upcoming election.

Most of us confuse "Love" for "Lust". Love goes deeper than Lust. Alright you are strongly attracted to that guy/girl, but how to do you know if you're really in love?
Read the 7 ways to know if you are truly in love with him/her as said by the experts:
1. You're Invested in His/Her Happiness
You're really in love when you're willing to put his/her happiness above your own, like skipping a movie that you want to see to stay home and help him/her get over a bad day.
2. You Want Them to Branch Out
That means you want them to find his own challenges and grow as a person. If you just want them to stay the same and not have any cool adventures, it's not love.
If you've been suffering from "honey, not tonight" syndrome (a.k.a. low sex drive), health experts say you're not alone.
Here are 10 of the most common—and surprising—reasons why your sex drive may have taken a nosedive, and how to get your groove back.
