Girl Drugged And Raped By Man She Met On Facebook

                         
The girl in the above picture was drugged and raped by a man she just met on Facebook.

She claims she met the man on Facebook and both arranged for a friendly date after one month of lovey dovey inbox messages.
The man picked her up in a Range rover car and drove to upmarket west-lands for a drink. She decided to have red bull since that was their first time of meeting and didn’t want to leave a bad impression.
During their date, she excused herself and went to the loo, that was when the man drugged the red bull she was drinking.

The girl only remembers being drowsy and someone dragging her to the car. She was half awake but still weak when the man together with other assailants defile’s her repeatedly. She lost count of the number of times she was defiled.

She only came back to her senses when good samaritans found her in Umoja 2, Kenya in a very bad state.
The girl said her vagina was sore and couldn’t walk properly.
She warns females to be very careful about the male friends they meet on Facebook as not all of them have good intentions.
Girls and everyone, we are in the Ember Months, lets be careful with meeting people you just met on facebook. 
Never Meet Someone You Barely Know In Private Places, But Safer In Public Places. There are many ritualists out there. Cynthia Osokogu's murder is enough.

Petroleum Task Force Report: God Bless Ribadu

                     

The strategy was obvious: hurl enough mud on the processes leading to the compilation of the report of the Petroleum Revenue Special Task Force led by a former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu.

So Mr. Steve Oronsaye, deputy chairman of that special task force, waited for an opportune time when all the cameras and tape recorders
