Skuki Brothers Set To Launch Their Own Condoms Brands

There is nothing more joyful than to see people who have made it, give back something good to the society that make them reach their level.

Nigeria's musical group called Skuki(which includes Tunmininu and Atewologun) have just devised their own way of giving something good to the society that made them. They are to start producing their own brand of condoms and preaching about s*x education to teenagers.

The hip-hop duo who came into reckoning with their smash hit, ‘Banger’,  while justifying their foray into this particular line of venture said:
“We are great believers in the fact that the youth are the leaders of tomorrow and have to learn from a young age that if you can’t abstain, you have to play safe. But not only that, we are looking at it from the concept of family planning, of teenage pregnancies and putting a stop to it.
“Every pregnant teenager in our society is another teenager that has to stop schooling in order to handle the situation they find themselves in. It goes way more than just the condom and s*x part.” They added.

Swaziland Bans Miniskirts And Any Form Of Provocative Dressing; Offenders Face 6 Months In Jail

                           wear any of these, get 6 months jail term

It is now a sin to wear miniskirts in Swaziland as police in Africa’s last absolute monarchy have banned women from wearing miniskirts and midriff-revealing tops saying they provoke r*pe, local media reported on Monday.
Offenders face a six-month jail term under the ban, which invokes a colonial criminal act dating back to 1889.
“The act of the defiler is made easy, because it would be easy to remove the half-cloth worn by the women,” police spokeswoman Wendy Hleta was quoted as saying in the Independent Online news.
Not only miniskirts are affected by the ban, but the ban also applies to low-rise jeans.
“They will be arrested,” she said.
Hleta said women wearing revealing clothing were responsible for assaults or r*pes committed against them.
“I have read from the social networks that men and even other women have a tendency of ‘undressing people with their eyes’. That becomes easier when the clothes are hugging or are more revealing,” Hleta said.
However, the ban does not apply to traditional costumes worn by young women during ceremonies like the annual Reed Dance, where the ruling King Mswati III chooses a wife.
The flamboyant king already has 13 wives.
During the ceremony, beaded traditional skirts worn by young bare-breasted virgins only cover the front, leaving the back exposed. Underwear is not allowed.
The law was enforced after a march by women and young girls last month calling for protection against a spate of r*pes in the impoverished kingdom, almost entirely surrounded by South Africa.
According to the media report, the march was blocked by police who has now found what they believe is a solution to the incidence of r*pe in Southern African country. [AFP]

Bus Driver In Lagos Killed By LASTMA Official During Struggle Today

A commercial bus driver, Isaac Popoola, died on Monday after a fierce struggle with an officer of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA. The LASTMA officials tried to seize the deceased car.

The 54-year-old breathed his last after the traffic officer allegedly hit his head on a metallic part of the bus as they struggled for control of the steering wheel.
Witnesses said that the bus left Egbeda/Akowonjo at around 6 a.m. on its way to Oshodi when a LASTMA patrol van pulled up in front of the vehicle as they approached Oshodi.

“Two officers approached the bus and one told the driver to come down and he refused. So they began to struggle,” a witness said.
The bus conductor ran into the nearby Mosafejo police station, and before he returned, his driver’s lifeless body was resting in the driver’s seat.
And a little crowd, which had gathered during the scuffle, had seized the officer.
At the Area F Police Headquarters, Ikeja, Mr. Popoola’s lifeless body lay in his bus with Lagos registration number XL166SMK. His colleagues and family members gathered around the bus; the wife’s periodic cry shattering the stillness of the afternoon.

“He is very gentle, humble. I don’t know why the LASTMA man killed my husband. Now I’m a widow,” said Dupe, the deceased’s wife, who stated that she was preparing to go to her shop when someone broke the news to her via a phone call.
“From where will I start? My children do not have father again. Who’s going to render the help? Very terrible, I can’t bear it. Who’s going to help me?” Mrs. Popoola said.

LASTMA have quickly disowned the alleged perpetrators of Monday’s fatal incident.
While naming Adesanya Olatunde and Ogunride Oludele as some of the culprits, the agency stated that the officers “acted on their own” and flouted operational guidelines.

“Adesanya was later identified by the Provost Marshall of the agency and handed over to the police while Oludele, who was reported to be off duty as at the time of the incident, was still at large,” Babatunde Edu, the General Manager of the agency, said in a statement.
“Effort is on to arrest other suspects connected with the incident,” he added.

SSS Arrest Two Journalists In Early Morning Of Today in Kaduna

The State Security Service (SSS), early Monday arrested two journalists working for Al-Mizan, a Hausa language newspaper.

Sources say the security operatives around 4am, stormed the house of Saleh, the paper’s reporter, in at least eight cars. Saleh resides in Rigasa, Kaduna.
He was reportedly manhandled alongside his wife. They were both arrested and subsequently moved to the next destination.

The editor, Musa Awwal and his wife, who also received the unexpected guests were also arrested after being maltreated.
Moments later, the officers it was learnt later freed the women and took the two journalists to an unknown destination.

The reason for the raid may not be unconnected with the latest story from the paper.
Titled “Atrocities of JTF in Potiskum,” the story which the security agencies considered provocative, gave accounts of how the Joint Task Force in Yobe State carries out extra-judicial arrests and murder of innocent citizens.

It further stated that over 80 young men were arrested about a month ago in Yobe by the JTF in Potiskum, and that nothing has since been heard from any of those picked up.

There has been no official statement from the SSS’ spokesperson, Marilyn Ogar. But the Public Relations Officer of the Kaduna State Police Command, Aminu lawal said he could not confirm if such thing happened as been held in the media.



When Muftua Adio a.k.a. Ajigijaga, a 53 year old actor send wedding invites to friends with the toast 'Some say it’s too early, some say it’s too late. But to God Almighty this is the appointed time and it is marvelous in our sights’’ little the people know that he really meant business.

Why people were wondering about this holy union between the two is simply because the couple walking down the aisle -Taiwo Hassan (26) and Ajigijaga in his early 50s is many years in age apart. At the wedding that took place November 24, 2012 in Sango Ota, Lagos, people kept asking why the young girl should marry a man almost the age of her father. But beautiful Taiwo did not give a hoot about whatever any one says or thinks.

She was indifferent to the fact that her actor husband has children who are age mates. Speaking before and shortly after their celebrated marriage, Ajigijaja said,” The issue of age is nothing here. What we have in common and that is abounding is love. Though I have other children from my former wife whom I did not actually marry legally, my new wife means the whole world to me. This is my first time of getting married in life. I love her and she loves me, that is all that counts. It`s about love, not age.”

Real Reason Chris and Rihanna Broke Up?

Most of us thought that Chris and Rihanna broke up was due to Karrauche and his romance with a french model. But that may not be the REAL REASON.
I got this information below from a reliable source. Read 
"Rihanna and Chris Brown did get back together but it wasn’t official. They wanted to put music collaborations, pictures, tweets out to the public little by little to ease the public’s transition of acceptance. Also, they were using that time to still feel things out themselves to see if a relationship could truly work. Things were going good for them. Chris stopped by to see Rihanna in New York and she joined him on tour the week after Thanksgiving. They spent time and Chris even showered her with gifts.
They were allowing the public to see them in clubs together and even put out affectionate photos. Things were truly going well until Rihanna had to leave Chris and get back to her grind.

“Throughout the week, I could sense that I wasn’t going to play, but it’s not a setback. Mourinho didn’t explain anything to me. He doesn’t do it when I play, nor when I don’t.”
Mourinho was adamant over his decision, saying he will not resign neither was he afraid for his job.

In another interview with AS newspaper, the 49-year-old said:

PFN Election: I Don’t Have Plans To Succeed Oritsejafor – Pastor Paul Adefarasin

Popular preacher and Senior Pastor of House on the Rock Church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin, denied the report he was lobbying to take over the mantle of leadership from the PFN President, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor.

The cleric said this yesterday in Lagos during a church service, that he has no intention of contesting for the position.

Adefarasin described the report as “mere rumours masterminded by malicious people,” saying that he already had “enormous task’’ as the shepherd in charge of the House on the Rock Church, which he founded.

He said: “It is obvious that some people are planning to send out wrong messages with the aim of dividing the body of Christ. Let me say that I have never struggled to take up such position. I am not interested in it and I do not need it.

The cleric in his Christmas message to the congregation, described the birth of Christ as a special gift to the world, saying that the reason why people could not enjoy God’s gifts was because of fear and lack of faith.

He called on Nigerians to look up to God even in the face of hardships.

Chistmas Celebrations: Atiku Greets All Christians, Prays For Nationwide Peace

Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar in his Christmas message called on Nigerians to keep faith with the promises of God.

The founder of American-University of Nigeria (AUN) also prayed for the renewal of the country and restoration of good life to the entire citizenry.

In a statement by his Media Office in Abuja, the Turakin of Adamawa said, “I congratulate my dear compatriots at Christmas and pray for peace in our hearts, peace in our homes and peace in our country.”

“As I wish you all a Merry Christmas, I enjoin you to keep the faith in the unfailing hope that God will renew our richly endowed country and restore the good life to us, His people,” he added.

our God and His ways.”

Kaduna State PDP Chairman, Nuhu Bajoga, May Be Appointed As New Deputy Governor

There are indications that chairman of the Kaduna State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nuhu Bajoga, may be appointed as the State’s Deputy Governor.

The search for the post had begun a few days after the death of late Governor Patrick Yakowa.
A former Nigerian Ambassador to Poland, Bajoga hails from Southern Kaduna, the same local government with the late Governor’s wife, Mrs. Amina Yakowa.

Sources say his name may be submitted to the state House of Assembly for confirmation this week.

The development did not come to many as a surprise as Vice President Namadi Sambo is the political godfather of the new Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero. He is reportedly pushing for the candidature of Bajoga for the number two citizen of the state.
It would be recalled that Yero was an accountant for 10 years in Sambo’s company Nalado Nigeria Limited in Kaduna.

Sambo on Saturday morning, was present at the PDP State Caucus meeting which was called to officially announce Yero as the new leader of the party in the state.
Bajoga in his speech at the meeting, pledged his “total loyalty” to Yero.
A political analyst who is from the North-West state told a source that, “If the news is true, then I expect that there will be serious opposition to Bajoga’s nomination. I don’t think it is a consensus agreement with input of relevant stakeholders. Several groups and power blocs in the state are jostling to have their preferred candidate become the new Deputy.”

“As I speak lot of people hold the view that Amina (Yakowa’s wife) should be compensated with the position. Aside that, the Kaduna mafia still exists and I don’t think they really want Bajoga in that
office,” he added.

Ngige Dashes Out Cash, Cars To Aides, Others

Former Governor of Anambra State, Dr. Chris Ngige

Former Anambra State Governor Chris Ngige on Sunday in Awka gave out eight Toyota Camry to some of his aides and party men.
The representative of Anambra Central in the Senate also extended the gesture to a man he refused to name, but who he said resisted the attempt to rig him out of the 2011 senatorial election.
Among the beneficiaries of the gifts were Mr. Kingsley Ezenwenyi, who was his agent during the election; Chief Charles Amilo, the Director of Communications of Ngige Campaign Organisation; and Chief Chris Udeze, the Chairman of the Action Congress of Nigeria in Idemili Local Government.
Ngige said he would also give out another set of vehicles in March 2013, urging members of the of the Action Congress of Nigeria in the state to mobilise support for the party.
The Senator also donated a total of N20m to schools, orphanages, churches, student associations and party executive committees at the ward and local governments.
He announced a scholarship of N100m for students in his constituency.
Ngige, who is the Deputy Chairman of the Senate Committee on Power, lamented poor electricity supply in the state, promising that a major power injection station would be sited at Dunukofia to boost power supply to Awka and Onitsha.
He called for understanding from people expecting him and other lawmakers to attract projects to the state, saying as legislators, there was a limit to what they could do.
He said, “We do not give contracts. We are not executives. We only make laws. A legislator can only come on oversight. For whatever we want, we have to go through the executive.”

Abia Discovers 1727 Ghost Workers In LGs

Abia State government has discovered 1727 ghost workers on the pay roll of its 17 local government councils.

The ghost workers were fished out by the biometric data implementation committee set up by the state government to find out why the council’s wage bill had steadily been on the increase.

Worried by the whopping wage bill in the local government system, the government introduced biometric method of identifying the genuine workers with the aim of fishing out the ghost names that appeared on the wage bill.

The committee that handled this was headed by the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr. Cosmos Ndukwe.

A break down of the figure showed that Aba South council has the highest number of ghost workers with 245, followed by Isiala Ngwa South with 153 ghost workers, while Ugwunagbo with 28 ghost workers had the least number.

Submitting its preliminary report, Chairman of the committee, Cosmos Ndukwe, explained that the committee visited the 17 councils and took physical count of the genuine workers during the exercise.
“We were able to identify 1727 ghost workers who could not be accounted for, which include those who did not appear before us and they have to get in touch with the governor to explain themselves,” Ndukwe said.

The committee called on the government to pay the salary, including arrears of the identified workers, as captured by the biometric data capturing machines.

Receiving the report from the committee, Governor Theodore Orji frowned on the high rate of financial rot that had been existing in the local government system, saying his administration was determined to put a stop to it.

The governor regretted the attitude of workers who instead of working for their pay “are busy under-mining the efforts of the state”.

Youths Kill Pastor, Two Other People Over Land Dispute

                                  dead death

Members of Faith Builders Ministry, a Pentecostal church located in Calabar Municipal Council of Cross River State, have been thrown into mourning following the death of their pastor and founder, Rev. John Ene-Obong, who was killed last Monday by irate youths over a land dispute in Ikot Ene-Obong community.

Ene-Obong, who reportedly returned to Nigeria from Canada barely a week before his death, was killed alongside two others whose names were given as Effiong Koko-Ette and Victor Ene-Boco.
PUNCH Metro gathered that the disputed land belongs to the family of the slain pastor.

It was further learnt that the pastor and two others might have been killed to avenge killing of one Eton, who was killed on the same farmland.

Eton, our correspondent learnt, was accused of maiming another man identified simply as Effiong.
Effiong, who was said to be a victim of the protracted land dispute, has been amputated on one of his legs following injury sustained when he was shot.

On the latest killings, a source told our correspondent that the pastor went to inspect the land in company with the two other victims when they were ambushed and killed.
Residents of Ikot Ene-Obong community and its environs are now living in fear following the war of attrition the land dispute had caused among members of late Chief Ene-Obong’s family.

It was learnt that the land dispute had polarised the family and factions within Ene-Obong’s family now resorted to use of thugs to intimidate one another.

A member of the family and former chairman of Calabar Municipality Local Government Area, Mr. Willy Okokon, confirmed the pastor’s death.

He said it was painful and unfortunate the way things had turned out, adding that the family would soon come out with burial plans.
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. John Umoh, said six persons had been arrested in connection with the killings.

Umoh, who stated that investigation was ongoing on the matter, however, added that the principal suspect was still at large.
He said, “The state Criminal Investigation Department has taken over the matter. Six persons have so far been arrested in connection with the killings.

“There is one principal suspect that is still at large. However, those arrested are still in our custody and we will not release them until investigations have been concluded.”

Osaze Wants To Be Eagles Captain — Keshi Reveals

Super Eagles coach, Keshi

Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has dropped a bombshell by saying Osaze Odemwingie had proposed himself as team captain.
Keshi told a stunned Nigeria Football Federation technical committee that the West Bromwich Albion striker put himself forward to be the Eagles skipper.
“He told them that he wants to be captain as he considers himself one of the most senior players in the current squad,” an official revealed.
“But how he has behaved in the national team over the years has really run counter to his ambition to be the leader of this team. You can only lead by example.”
The 31-year-old Osaze made his Eagles debut in 2002, but it was not until the 2004 Nations Cup that he established himself in the national team.
Goalkeepers Vincent Enyeama and Austin Ejide as well as defender and present skipper Joseph Yobo are older than Osaze in the Eagles.
However, he has rowed with national team bosses, from Austin Eguavoen to Lars Lagerback, and his clash with Samson Siasia was widely regarded as one of the problems that caused Nigeria to sensationally fail to qualify for the 2012 Nations Cup.
It is such poor attitude that has now denied him a fifth Nations Cup appearance.
In the meantime, the Eagles coach has said he wishes to run the rule over shock invitee Rabiu Ibrahim who has failed to establish himself at Celtic.
Ibrahim has only managed a handful of games in his second season at Celtic Park and has yet to be capped by Nigeria at full international.
“Keshi said he has watched Rabiu in a couple of cup games and will want to have a closer look at the midfielder in Faro, Portugal,” a top official told
The gifted Ibrahim has held out a lot of promise since he featured for the Golden Eaglets in 2007, but he has yet to establish himself in Europe ever since.
This will be his second Eagles call-up as he was also considered for the 2010 Nations Cup, but opted out as he had just undergone a groin operation.
Some top officials also took an exception to the continued invitation of Italy-based midfielder Obiora Nwankwo, saying he is sluggish and brings very little to the team.
However, Keshi stood by his decision, insisting that the Olympic team skipper is tactically disciplined.

Shittu May Turn Down Eagles Recall Says Club Coach


Bulky centre-half, Danny Shittu, who made his international debut for Nigeria against Paraguay on March 26, 2002 and was a squad member of the Super Eagles to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, could turn down the call from Nigeria to play in the 2013 AfCON in South Africa.

According to his manager at Millwall, Kenny Jackett, the big defender looks set to reject the chance to play for Nigeria after he got a recall on Friday by Stephen Keshi.

Jackett is so sure that the 32-year-old centre-back will not honour the Nigerian call.
“I don’t think he’s going to go and I don’t think he’s been in touch with them. At the moment that’s the decision.

“It was a surprise but it shows how well Danny has done. He’s only in the preliminary squad so that’s going to be cut down.

World's Tallest Teen Finds Love


It is difficult to believe that Elisany da Cruz Silva, is just 17, and she holds the record of the world’s tallest teen girl at 6ft 8in

But if you think that will make the boys feel intimidated by her height you got it wrong because Elisany is in a relationship with Francinaldo da Silva Carvalho, 22, who stands at 5ft 4in.

And such love comes with a high price – he has to practically stand on his toes and crane his neck to get a kiss.
The construction worker said: “My friends say things like, ‘How do you hug her?’. I say, ‘There’s a way of doing everything’.”
Elisany, an aspiring model from Salinopolis, Brazil, is just an inch taller than Stoke City’s Peter Crouch — she has a form of gigantism due to a tumour on her pituitary gland.
She grew faster than her seven siblings from the age of 11 and hit 6ft 9in when she was 14. But her sudden growth caused pain in her limbs and joints.

Surgeons removed the gland two years ago and she shrank by an inch — but she could still not fit on the school bus and had to quit school due to teasing.
But she’s happy now with Francinaldo. She said: “What really attracted me was his personality, the way he acts with people and the way he acts with me.
“The only thing that really affects us is when we hang out holding hands — it seems like he is my little brother or son.” - Sun News.
