Nigerian Boy Suspected to be Gay Gets Asylum In The U.S, After Being Arrested In Nigeria

Oliver came out quietly in 2005, but last year when a gang of neighborhood boys learned the young activist was gay, they blackmailed him, stole his phone and clothing and, when he called their bluff, told his mother.

In the United States, this event surely would have been traumatizing. But in Nigeria, where Oliver lived until he recently got asylum status, it almost cost him his life.

Oliver, still trembling from fear, did not want to use his last name. “I used to live with my mother, but now she said I should never come back,” he said. “She is the only family I have.”

The Nigerian Senate has passed a bill that criminalizes homosexuality, forcing even families to report their loved ones if they are in same-sex relationships. Its House of Representatives will soon vote on it.

 Winner of an airplane at the MTN Ultimate Wonder promo, Ebube Essien-Garricks, speaks with MAUREEN AZUH on how she became the lucky millionaire and her plans

Stories of a rise from grass to grace, to many people, may be a case of a happy ending in movies and works of fiction. But for Ebube Essien-Garricks, that popular saying is now just as real as the air she breathes.

The 27-year-old student of the Rivers State College of Health Science and Technology, Port Harcourt, is N64m richer. She emerged the winner of a Cessna 182T aircraft in the MTN Ultimate Wonder promo after a draw held in Lagos on November 13.

Expectedly, Essien-Garricks is still excited about the outcome of the lottery she says she could not remember taking part in.

“I was surprised when I was called by a family friend that I had won because I thought it was not real,” she says. “Before then, I had never played any game concerning MTN. Ironically my SIM card was blocked at the time. I had a code on my phone which I forgot and in the process of trying to decode it, my line was blocked.”

Jose Mourinho Breaks Record: Becomes Youngest Manager To Take Charge Of 100 Champions League Games


Jose Mourinho will become the youngest manager to achieve 100th Champions League games today when he leads his Real Madrid side out against Manchester City.

Mourinho is just 49 years old. What makes this record more remarkable, is that he has already won the competition with Porto and Inter Milan.

Mourinho said: “Fortunately I have never been eliminated in the group phase and, therefore, the number of games per season has never been less than six,” he pointed out. “I twice did the maximum of 13 games per season, and in four others I had 12 matches.

On his most memorable games, he said: “There are many, but I mainly remember the Manchester United-Porto game [at Old Trafford] that made us feel that we could be European champions.

“Also the Chelsea-Barcelona match where we won 4-2. The Inter-Barcelona semi-final, when Milan won 3-1 and in the second leg, the one I call the game of heroes at Camp Nou, when we were reduced to 10 for more than an hour is special because we were able to lead Inter to the final in Madrid.”
