There Was Never A Time I said "I Married My Wife Out Of Pity" - Joseph Benjamin


Actor Joseph Benjamin took to twitter to address the rumours that he said he married his wife out of pity in a recent interview with Adeola Adeyemi. Read it below...

 My attention has been drawn to the latest headline about me concerning my marriage...For the records, there was never a time I said “I married my wife out of pity". There’s nowhere I can be quoted as ever saying such. Its ridiculous. There have been conflicting reports on my marital status in recent times that it was necessary to finally come out and share the situation. We have mutual respect for each other. We are not enemies, and we will work through this. It is a separation, not death. And as far as there is life, there is hope, faith and courage. For those who have been of great support, I want to thank you so very much. - Joseph Benjamin

The abandoned site of the June 3 Dana flight 992 Plane Crash at Iju-Ishaga, Lagos is now being overrun by weeds, the street itself deteriorating from motorists and pedestrians’ use.
Once a developing area, Popoola Street suffered a destructive and deadly hit from the Boeing MD-83 craft, which killed 153 passengers on board and at least six persons on the ground.
Among other things, the crash left one building totally crushed. A furniture company, with an attached warehouse containing two container loads of published books, was also destroyed.
Apart from millions of concerned citizens who trooped to the site on the day of the crash and thereafter, the crash site became a big tour center for government officials for few days. Six months later, the place is suffering serious abandonment.
A Lagos State Government agency inspected some houses in the vicinity of the crash site and informed their owners that their buildings had seriously weakened foundations from the impact of the crash.
Those landlords and other inhabitants have, however, been left to their fate and left to settle in them.
