Anglican run St James Girls High School has been hit by a lesbian “sex” scandal which has resulted in the expulsion of pupils, one of them for offering a teacher sex in exchange for lenience after being caught in the act.
The scandal reportedly started in June when two Form Six pupils were caught by fellow pupils in the middle of the night having a nice time under the sheets, BMetro reported. A report was made to school authorities.
After a probe, the two girls (names withheld) were suspended for two weeks. According to a source, the pupils showed remorse during the disciplinary hearing and promised to give up the lesbian antics. On returning to school after serving the sentence, the two are said to have kept a distance from each other.
“Everyone was convinced that they had indeed stopped their behaviour. They even stopped talking to each other and we all thought that the relationship was over. Little did we know that we were being fooled,” said a source.
Sometime in October, while the rest of the pupils were preparing for examinations, the two were making frantic efforts to resurrect their relationship.

Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola has sent out invitation to Nigerians to be part of the closing ceremony of the 18th National Sports Festival this evening at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos, with the promise of a magnificent show.
Lagos has done well in the hosting of the games, providing a level-playing field, with true winners emerging in most of the events. Cheating was not as pronounced as it was in some past festivals.
Despite being on home soil, athletes representing Lagos did not intimidate their opponents; neither did they cheat; promoting the spirit of fair play. They deservedly ended up as third on the medals table and lived up to expectation.
Pundits say it is their best outing in the past five games and it is not unconnected with the government’s efforts at promoting sports development in the state.

After eating a Ugandan Kob, the lioness noticed the orphaned baby. She started roaring to make it go away, however, later her maternal instincts took over, and she picked the baby antelope like it was her own cub.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office released the autopsy report on Christopher Wallace, aka The Notorious B.I.G. or Biggie Smalls, on Friday, more than 15 years after the rapper was shot to death.
The 23-page report offers fresh details about his death, which remains one of the city’s best-known unsolved homicides.
Wallace, 24, was shot and killed early on March 9, 1997, as he was leaving a music industry party. He was riding in the front passenger seat of a Chevrolet Suburban when another vehicle pulled up beside his and someone opened fire.
Wallace was shot four times, according to the autopsy report.
The fatal bullet entered his right hip and ripped through several organs, including his liver, heart and lung. The other bullets struck Wallace in his left forearm, his back and his left thigh.
He was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he arrived in full cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead shortly after 1 a.m.
At the time of his death, he had no drugs or alcohol in his system. Wallace was 6 feet, 2 inches tall, weighed 395 pounds and had a tattoo on his right forearm that read: “The Lord is My Light and my Salvation …”
His slaying has long stumped investigators.
Los Angeles police and the FBI both looked into the case but made no arrests.
Wallace was killed just six months after his former friend and rap rival Tupac Shakur was gunned down in Las Vegas, leading some to believe both shootings were tied to a so-called rap war between East Coast and West Coast hip-hop artists and their record companies.
Shakur recorded for Marion “Suge” Knight’s Los Angeles-based Death Row Records, while Wallace was signed with New York-based Bad Boy Entertainment.
Shakur’s killing is also unsolved.
The frosty relationship between President Goodluck Jonathan and former President Olusegun Obasanjo may have worsened as the latter has refused to openly sympathise with the former over the death of his younger brother, Meni Jonathan.
Meni’s remains are being interred at Otuoke in Bayelsa State on Saturday (today).
Obasanjo is currently in Ghana, where he is monitoring the ongoing presidential election in the West African country.
The former President, who was until April the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, boycotted the last meeting of the board, which was held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting was conveyed to discuss modalities for the election of his successor.
While Obasanjo prefers a former National Chairman of the PDP, Dr. Ahmadu Ali for the top job, Jonathan is rooting for Chief Tony Anenih.
These differences on serious political and inter-personal relationship between both men have made any process aimed at attaining a truce difficult and deepened their enmity.
Besides, investigations by our correspondents showed that the status of a former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, in the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, has aggravated the rift between Jonathan and Obasanjo.
Delta State High Court has sentenced four youths to 45 years imprisonment each for kidnapping and robbing the father of former Secretary to the Delta State Government (SSG), Chief Pa Arthur Okowa.
Pa Okowa, father of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa was kidnapped in 2009 at his residence, Efeizomor Street, Boji Boji Owa, as he was preparing to attend a church service.
He regained freedom after three weeks in the captivity of his abductors.
Justice C.O Ogisi, in his judgment yesterday at the High Court sitting in Owa-Oyibu, in Ika North East Local Government Area, said each of the accused persons were convicted and sentenced to thirty-five years each on count 1 and 2 and ten years imprisonment on count 3 and 4.
Justice Ogisi also said that the sentence is to run concurrently as the prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable doubt that the accused persons committed the crime.
Justice Ogisi, in the judgment that lasted for about one hour further stated that the court was convinced that the accused persons committed the offence following their confessional statement that linked them to the offence for which they were charged.
The accused persons; Fresher Aiworo, Victor Ajulor, Bright Onyemani and George Ogala, all male, according to the charge sheet, were charged with offence of committing armed robbery, punishable under section 1(2) (a) of the robbery and firearms (Special Provision) Act and kidnapping, punishable under section 516 (A)(1) of the criminal code of the laws of the Federation.
Nigeria’s Joint Task Force (JTF) on Operation Restore Order has disclosed that it shot dead four suspected terrorist commanders of the Boko Haram group after an operation in Maiduguri.

|U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton meets withNelson Mandela, 94, at his home in Qunu, South Africa on Aug. 6, 2012.|
Former South African president Nelson Mandela was admitted to hospital on Saturday for medical tests, although the government said there was no cause for alarm.
A statement from President Jacob Zuma’s office gave no details of the condition of the 94-year-old anti-apartheid leader.
“Former President Mandela will receive medical attention from time to time which is consistent with his age,” the statement said.
“President Zuma assures all that Madiba is doing well and there is no cause for alarm,” it added, referring to Mr. Mandela by his clan name.
Mr. Mandela, who became South Africa’s first black president after the country’s first all-race elections in 1994, was admitted to hospital in February because of abdominal pain but released the following day after a keyhole examination showed there was nothing seriously wrong with him.
He has since spent most of his time in his ancestral home in Qunu, a village in the impoverished Eastern Cape province.
His frail health prevents him from making any public appearances in South Africa, although in the last few months he has continued to receive high-profile visitors, including former U.S. President Bill Clinton.

I can remember faintly that when I was four, I started noticing a strange feeling for fellow girls like me. We were in Blackburn, United Kingdom then where I was born. I knew something was just wrong with me. I wasn’t acting like my playmates. I can remember I was always scared of so many things. I was nervous of toys and very afraid whenever they tried to take my picture.
The family of a lady, Gloria Akpan, has accused their daughter’s lover, Ita Eyo, of killing her in his residence in Ayobo area of Ogun State.
Gloria and Eyo both from Akwa Ibom State had been cohabiting since March 2012 before the sad incident occurred on November 3. The lady was six-month pregnant before she died.
A family source, who craved anonymity, said when he spoke to Gloria on Friday, a day before her death, she told him that all was well, adding that it was shocking to learn that she had died the next day.
The source said, “Without seeing any member of the family, that same Saturday, they hurriedly buried her.
“This is suspicious. The information we got was that she was strangled as she bled through her nose and mouth.”
The R&B performer says in a Tweet on Friday that she's been hospitalized because of "minor health issues" related to Lupus. A spokeswoman confirmed the hospitalization but had no other details. "But no worries!," Braxton wrote to fans. "I will be out any day now."
The 45-year-old singer of "Un-break My Heart" revealed two years ago she has Lupus, a potentially deadly autoimmune disease that killed Braxton's uncle. She also suffers from a narrowing of the blood vessels in her heart.
Braxton said in a recent "20/20" interview that doctors told her the Lupus diagnosis meant her performing career would likely be diminished and the disease helped push her into a recent bankruptcy.

Time will tell if it is a rumour or not.
There’s serious bad blood right now between two music stars: Goldie and J Martins. It’s a long story, but I’ll try to make it short. Goldie invited J Martins to South Africa in November to appear in the video of a song they did together called Give It To Me. J Martins asked for business class. Goldie said she couldn’t afford it. J Martins agreed to come reluctantly. Then he told Goldie to pick him up at the airport. Goldie sent someone instead. J Martin refused to follow the man Goldie sent to the airport to pick him up, saying he didn’t want to be kidnapped (which makes sense).
J Martins then checked himself into a $700 hotel, refusing to check into the hotel Goldie booked for him. Goldie and other members of her crew then went to J Martins’ hotel to see him but he refused to see them. He said he was tired, and was not feeling well, so couldn’t see anyone. Then the morning of the shoot, J Martins refused to come to set. He asked Goldie and her crew to pay for his hotel accommodation. $700 x 5 nights = $3, 500. Goldie said she couldn’t afford it. After much begging and talks, J Martins agreed to two nights refund which was $1400.
After that was settled, J Martins didn’t show up on set till 3pm that afternoon. When he got on set, he refused to enter the video until they gave him the $1400. Then he complained about the costumes…he refused to do this, refused to do that…he was rude, he was talking on the phone…etc…etc.
Anyway, to cut the long story short, the white guys shooting the video got tired of all the drama and packed their stuff and left without completing the video. J Martins shot some scenes but not all Goldie is said to be pretty angry at J Martins because she lost a lot of money.

In this interview, the delectable actress talks about her NGO, which she recently set up to cater for the welfare of the less -privileged people in our society as well as her plans to establish a studio among other issues.

What I had in mind when I set up my NGO was to use the platform to reach out to the less privileged people in our society. You know, somebody might be looking good but inwardly, he or she has a lot of problems bothering him. So, we really want to see how we can assist them in our own little way.
Have you reconciled with your husband?
I don’t know. I hate talking about my private life. But what I know is that I have a child now.
Police Arrest Robbers Who Sedate Their Victims With Satchet Water Before Robbing Them In Commercial Buses
Do you accept sachet or bottle water offered by unknown passengers in a commercial bus? Then, you must be careful as some robbery gang have devised this method to rob unsuspecting passengers.
This discovery is coming on the heels of the arrest of five members of a notorious robbery gang by operatives of the Special Anti-robbery Squad, SARS, of the Lagos State Police Command.
