Frank Edoho Fights Fans On A Twitter, Said: “You Faggot-Looking Moron” To A Fan


MTN’s Who wants to be a Millionaire anchor, Frank Edoho, engaged in a tweet fight this afternoon.

It all started when a certain @girlish_lava asked “what would you do if your gf is pregnant” with a reply of “punch it out of her” by a certain @TweetQuizzer.

Apparently, Frank Edoho was pissed off by the answer so he vented his displeasure by calling @Tweetquizzer a fool.

The latter retweeted Frank, and replied with “look who’s calling the kettle black”

The response got Frank mad and he replied with “You don’t really know for sure about me but u just admitted to punching pregnant women. Why, u faggot-looking Moron.

“I have pity for you! Speaking about pregnant women like that! Try speaking to me face to face!”
@TweetQuizzer reponded with “If u had any sense u’d realise how stupid u sound right now.”


Not satisfied, he went further to call Edoho “a monumental idiot and a disgrace to men around the world.”

And that was how they exchanged words for some minutes on Twitter, until a certain @chinedu009 cautioned @frankedoho saying “Frank there are so so many fools on Twitter. You need to let some stuffs slide.The dude just wants cheap publicity”

OMG: Man Lives In A Tree For 9 Months After Wife Refuses To Apologise For Cheating On Him

Indian man

An Indian man has spent NINE (9) MONTHS living in a TREE because his wife refuses to say sorry for cheating on him.

The man, known only as Sanjay, walked in on his partner and a next-door neighbour in their Mumbai home.
And when she refused to apologise he climbed a nearby guava tree and has been there ever since.

The 25-year-old has survived on a diet of fruit from the tree and food handed up by relatives.
“He eats and sleeps on the tree and even relieves himself from there,” his sister told The Asian Age newspaper.

Police have said they can’t intervene because he hasn’t committed an offence.
A spokesman for Cholapur police confirmed: “The man is on a tree top for the last nine months over some domestic dispute.”

Sanjay’s wife has since returned to live with her parents – and has still not said sorry.

I am truly surprised a man can do such a thing!! What if a a Baboon or  a Gorilla came and beat the hell out of him. OR a lion came and ate him? what will he tell God if dies on the tree? Can any a Naija man do this?

Tears Flow As Late Governor Yakowa Is Finally Laid To Rest


The funeral service of the late Governor of Kaduna state, Ibrahim Patrick Yakowa, today held at Saint Paul’s Catholic Church, Fadan-Kagoma.

The service witnessed a mammoth crowd including the deceased family members, federal and state government officials, hundreds of villagers and sympathizers.
Before the arrival of Yakowa’s remains, his wife, Amina, told the multitudes of mourners who thronged her husband’s family house that her husband worked for peace, unity and development of the state.

The mother of four who wept profusely as she spoke in Hausa, further stated that she believed that Yakowa died for the same course.
She said, in everything the deceased did while he held sway as Governor, the entire people of the state came first in his mind.

“God knows why this has happened to us at this time, so please let’s give thanks to God Almighty”.
As the corpse arrived in a motorcade, more tears freely rolled down the faces of those present including eminent personalities and top politicians. Most were seen sobbing irrepressibly as only a few managed to control their emotions .

Those who attended the requiem mass include: Senate President David Mark, Speaker, House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, and at least ten ministers and nine bishops led by former president of Christian Association of Nigeria, Cardinal John Onaiyekan.

Also in attendance were some state Governors: Rotimi Ameachi of Rivers, Idris Wada of Kogi, Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo and Babangida Aliyu of Niger.

Others are Peoples Democratic Party National Chairman Bamanga Tukur and former Head States, Abdusalami Abubakar among other dignitaries.

I Have Joy When I’m Around Children-Empress Njama

House of Empress owner, Nollywood actress, Empress Njama has revealed her reasons for specially caring for children.

Empress Njama made this know a couple of days ago when she celebrated her birthday at Karu Children’s Home.

“When growing, my mum said that when I was younger I was always carrying children of my age, I always try to lift them. So I think that is where I got the love from. And I’m this kind of person that has joy when I have children around me or when I’m around children.
It is something that has been within ever since. It’s not like I’m just starting doing this, I have been doing it over the years. I feel very relaxed blessed and free with children.”

Empress Njama also said further, “It has always been my tradition and I will keep doing it. They are the best people you can celebrate your birthday with. They bring so much joy to you and they are all innocent children and clean-hearted people who would genuinely share your cake and have fun with you. It always has to be the children.”

One of the things the beautiful actress does for children include giving scholarship and attending to their daily needs on a regular basis.
Empress Njama emphasized that every year, she chooses five friends who help in the yearly sponsorship of these children.

“Every year, I pick up five friends and I call them volunteers. These friends will take care of a child each for a year. I picked five in Lagos and I was able to get three in Abuja. But it is for a year. If they want to go further, fine but I pick them for a year. That is just what we do to assist the child.
It is just like you assisting the child, most of us enjoy doing it. Most of my friends during our spare time come see the children,” Empress Njama concluded.

EFCC Declares Ex-Kogi Governor, Abubakar Audu, Wanted Over N4bn Scam

The EFCC believes Mr. Audu corruptly enriched himself with about N4 billion of state funds.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has declared former governor of Kogi State, Abubakar Audu, wanted for offences bordering on conspiracy, stealing and misappropriation of public fund.

The action followed the failure of the Mr. Audu to respond to invitations by the anti- graft agency.

An attempt by the EFCC to arrest at the former governor at his 32, Sulaiman Barau Street, Asokoro, Abuja residence on December 11, 2012 failed as he allegedly evaded arrest.

The former governor is alleged to have fraudulently enriched himself with over N4 billion of Kogi funds while he held sway as governor between 1999 and 2003.

The move to arrest the ex- governor followed a Supreme Court ruling of November 23, 2012, which dismissed an appeal by the ex-governor that questioned the EFCC’s prosecution of his activities.

The Commission in a statement by its spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, implored anyone having useful information about the whereabouts of the suspect to notify its offices in Abuja, Port Harcourt, Lagos, Kano and Enugu; or report at the nearest police station.

National Assembly: House Of Representatives Pass 2013 Budget Of N4.987trn

The House of Representatives on Thursday passed the 2013 budget of N4.987 trillion as against the N4.924 trillion presented by President Goodluck Jonathan.

This represents a difference of N63 billion.
The budget comprises of N387.9 billion for statutory transfers, and N591.7 billion for debt services.

The budget is also made up of N2.3 trillion as recurrent non-debt expenditure and N1.6 trillion for contribution to the development fund for capital expenditure for the year ending December 31, 2013.

All unutilised capital expenditure in the 2012 budget has been rolled over to form part of the 2013 Appropriation Act.

The Deputy Speaker, Emeka Ihedioha, who presided enjoined all standing committees of the House to carry out their oversight functions in order to ensure full implementation of capital projects.

The spending plans assumed a $79 a barrel benchmark oil price as against the $75 submitted to the National Assembly by the president.

The House will now wait for the passage of the appropriating bill by the Senate, followed by harmonization by both chambers, before the bill is sent to the president for signing into law.


Coach Steven Keshi Releases AfCON 2013 List, Ezekiel Out

Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi, has hinted that his list of foreign-based pros will be made public on Christmas day.

However, while the names are kept close to his chest, the gaffer still managed to give away some of the professionals who will be on that list when he said Russia-based strikers Ahmed Musa and Emmanuel Emenike as well as Ogenyi Onazi will be in camp in Portugal on December 29.
Keshi also said Ukraine-based striker Brown Ideye will also join up with the rest of the squad on the same day.

Also expected on the list as disclosed by Keshi are late minute entrants; Shola Ameobi of Newcastle United and Bright Dike of the American soccer league who both made their debut for the country last month with the international friendly against Venezuela.

The former Togo and Mali coach said that generally the level of discipline in the camp was encouraging except for the attitude exhibited by Ezekiel who was turned back for reporting late.

“We are trying to build a much disciplined squad for the Nations Cup and we are a bit surprised that a home-based player who is making a first appearance will decide to report late when even his mates who have stayed over a year with us still respect arrival dates. We hope when next he gets an opportunity he will know that time is of essence,” Keshi said.

Patrick Obahiagbon Speaks “Grammar” On Jubilation Of Some Muslims In Kaduna Over Gov. Yakowa's Death


"Whilst I feel tongue tied that we are witnessing another 'air mishap' that has taken the lives of fellow Nigerians, I am utterly shocked to hear of the jubilation in certain Northern political quarters and muslim youths in Kaduna State. Just too too cruddy and it is beyond the fugacious razzmatazz of the moment.
"I seriously call attention to the rutilanting and coruscating modus vivendi of Master Jesus the Christ and I dare pontificate that save and until we viscerally emblematize the virtues of self-immolation, quintessential abnegation, eulogizeable simplicity, humility and immerse ourselves in a platonic emotionalism of agape love and communalistic service and head to unity as one nation."

BREAKING NEWS: Fire outbreak at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos (+PHOTOS)

Fire at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos

Today's  morning, an electrical fire was reported at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos.

The fire emanated from some cables, which apparently melted under heat.
This led to a blackout in the airport terminal while fire fighters deployed swiftly in the affected area to quench the fire.
                        Fire at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos

Security men erected a metal barricade around the site and the fire fighters were able to put the situation under control.
On Wednesday night however, in a separate incident, a cargo plane blew off the roof of a parking lot at the airport, causing damage to some

In that incidence, two people sustained injuries while 12 exotic cars were severely damaged when hot air from a wide-body cargo aircraft blew off the roof of a building at the E-wing of the terminal.

At about 7.39p.m, the entire terminal was thrown into confusion while this happened.
According to a staff of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) who was on duty at the terminal, there was a bang at the diplomatic car park at the time the roof fell on the cars, thus forcing some drivers to flee.

Two people sustained minor injuries, while the debris of shattered windscreens littered the floor.
“We heard a loud bang and everyone initially fled. Later, some security personnel stormed the place. Thank God no life was lost. It is shocking. This sort of thing has never happened before,” he said.

On confirming the incident, the Spokesman of FAAN, Yakubu Dati said “there is no such thing that an airplane ran into cars…I’m still trying to get the real details but I think it has to do with the wind from the aircraft that blew off the roof which later hit some cars”.

CSPI Wants Beyonce To Drop Her $50m Deal With Pepsi


CSPI has made public its desire to see Beyonce drop her new $50Million deal with Pepsi. 
Read the open letter from the director of the CSPI to Beyonce below: 

"Beyonce you have  a unique position in the cultural life of this country and are an inspiring role model for millions of young people.
Your image is one of success, health, talent, fitness, and glamour. But by lending your name and image to PepsiCo, you are associating those positive attributes with a product that is quite literally sickening Americans
I imagine that it must be hard for anyone to turn away $50 million. But this endorsement deal strikes me as particularly inappropriate, considering your popularity with America's young people and the extent to which Pepsi and other sugary drinks promote disease.
The New York Times attributed to you a statement that this endorsement agreement allows you “to work with a lifestyle brand with no compromise and without sacrificing [your] creativy.” It seems to me that this deal is actually an enormous comprise. In fact, I would characterize this as an even bigger compromise than your accepting $2 million to perform at the 2009 New Year’s Eve bash thrown by Hannibal Gaddafi, the famously violent son of the now-deceased Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
You realized that arrangement was in error and wisely donated those proceeds to charity, I respectfully urge you to reconsider your arrangement with PepsiCo. If you move ahead with your promotional activities, you may wish to consider donating your proceeds to a hospital, diabetes organization or another reputable charity involved in the prevention or treatment of soda-related diseases."
We are still waiting for beyonce response.

According to an eye witness, the robbers, whose number could not be ascertained arrived at the bank on new Inisha road at about 4.00.p.m. and carted away an unspecified amount of money.

The hoodlums were said to have shot sporadically into the air in order to scare away people at the vicinity.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Folasade Odoro, confirmed the incident but said the command would release details as soon as the report was available. [NAN]

Bayelsa Crashed Helicopter: How I Narrowly Escaped Death - Gowon

                               General Yakubu Gowon

Former Head of State Gen. Yakubu Gowon on Wednesday recounted how he would have been on the helicopter that crashed killing Kaduna State Governor Patrick Yakowa, ex-National Security Adviser Andrew Azazi and four others in Bayelsa State on Saturday.
Speaking in Kafanchan, at the special thanksgiving service to mark the 50th birthday anniversary of Apostle Emmanuel Nuhu Kure, the founder of Throneroom Ministry, Gen. Gowon said that the chopper was being arranged for them to fly to Port Harcourt when another one was provided for him and five others.
According to him: “We were with the aide of the President to pay our condolences and they started arranging for a Navy helicopter to take us to Yenogoa (with Yakowa). But, another helicopter was arranged for me and five others. And that was it.

OGUN POLITICS: Obasanjo, Daniel’s Supporters Clash at PDP Secretariat

The five-year unresolved crisis of the troubled Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State, took a new twist yesterday, as two factions loyal to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, and the state former Governor Gbenga Daniel, engaged themselves in a public brawl.
The Premium Times reported that members of both factions used charms and other weapons in a free-for-all fight at the party’s secretariat in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
Both factions fought over which group will control the party secretariat located along Presidential Boulevard, Abeokuta.
As a result of the violence, it was gathered that the Police and the State Security Service (SSS) have taken over the secretariat.
It was gathered that the faction loyal to Obasanjo had some few months backed sack of the Daniel-led faction from theof secretariat, thereby taking full control of the building.
However, the Daniel’s faction allegedly financed by a multi-millionaire, Buruji Kashamu, was said to have stormed the party’s secretariat armed with a court judgment pronouncing the faction’s executive as the authentic PDP leaders.
The court judgment was said to have been secured even before they were made to leave the secretariat earlier.
Reports said the leaders of the Daniel faction had sought a meeting with the leaders of the other group at the party’s secretariat to present the latter with the court order. Before the meeting could hold, violence erupted between supporters of both factions
The violence escalated as supporters used charms and other dangerous weapons freely on one another.
A witness said some people fainted and became unconscious after being hit with charms.
The development, however, paralysed activities around the area until the arrival of security operatives, who eventually arrested five people.
The state Police Commissioner, Ikemefuna Okoye, was said to have hurriedly abandoned a press conference at the Eleweran Police headquarters to take charge of development at the troubled area.
He said his men were at the party secretariat to maintain peace and order, adding that he came around as soon as he heard there was “little problem in the PDP secretariat.”
The police commissioner, however, assured residents not to be disturbed and to continue with their normal activities; promising that the command has dispatched enough men to the area.

“Why I Can’t Stop Going Nude”- Upcoming Model, Precious


Young Precious, who is just at her early 21, has continued to work around her dream of becoming a super model that will ever come out of Nigeria. 
The young beauty queen had told a source that her dream was to be known globally. Precious had won several modeling competitions even as she never stopped halfway in almost all the Beauty contests she had been part of.
Speaking with a source, the highly determined model disclosed that she had completely lost trust in men, as none appears to be sincere to women; hence, her major concern was to push her career up the ladder, leaving men to wonder at her super confidence.
She said, “I’m confident, I know that. It’s only with extreme confidence that you can see your own nudity in public. I allow it because I want to sell myself to the world. This is me, and you cannot deny me of me. I’m not selling myself to men as some may want to believe, I’m selling my flexibly, my natural endowment and other things God has endowed in me to those who want to buy, so if my market is not for you, you just shut your mouth and see where Precious is ‘gonna’ be in the next five years”
Disclosing further, she said “Life has thought me to be bold. I have seen both the good and the bad, and if you think it’s easy to survive without the love of a father and a mother, even when they are still living, then you are just being insincere”
“I’m passionate about what I do because, it’s only with this continuous pursuit of my career that I am revitalized any time I’m consumed and lost in the world of anguish.”
At this age, I’m considerably successful, as I keep working for myself even when any man who wants to help you makes some silly demands from you. I’m not budged by any of such intimidation as they will quickly say “if you don’t give me this, I won’t give you that.”
Precious had narrated a sad story of how her parents parted ways when she was still a little girl. She had narrated how her step mother put her father under a spell, and leaving her father in a continuous state of memory loss that he can no longer recognize them. “My father sent my mum out of his house after a woman came into his life years ago. Her charm has turned my father’s love away from us, as he can no longer recognize us as his children, but that has not killed my dream. Each time I call my dad on the phone, to introduce myself; he would act so strange, with all hatred. He denies us every time. But I’m happy. I’m happy because I’m doing something that makes me happy.”
Precious is one of the most popular models in Abuja who has not failed to be part of great modeling event. She currently owns and manages a modeling company and will be contesting in the next edition of Miss Abuja, and Miss Middle Belt.

Miss USA Crowned Miss Universe 2012

A 20-year-old Boston University sophomore and a self-described 'cellist-nerd' brought the Miss Universe crown back to the United States for the first time in more than a decade when she won the televised contest on Wednesday.

Olivia Culpo beat out 88 other beauty queens to take the title from Leila Lopes of Angola during the two-hour competition at the Planet Hollywood casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

Culpo wore a tight navy blue mini-dress with a sequined bodice as she walked on stage for the competition's opening number.

Miss Philippines, Janine Tugonon, came in second, while Miss Venezuela, Irene Sofia Esser Quintero, placed third.

All the contestants spent the past two weeks in Sin City, where they posed in hardhats at a hotel groundbreaking, took a painting lesson, and pranked hotel guests by hiding in their rooms.

Culpo was the first Miss USA winner from Rhode Island when she took the national crown in Las Vegas in June.
