Interview with Kechi, 1 of the 2 survivors of the Sosoliso plane crash, 6 yrs After

Before the Crash                                                                                                                             After the Crash
I saw this interview on DailyGist360 and so wanted to share it with the world. I remember that incident like yesterday, if felt like a nightmare for a long time. The thought of children screaming in fear and dying was almost too much to bear.
Fortunately, Kechi who was a student of Loyala Jesuit at the time survived the crash. 

I remember the Sosoliso plane crash. I remember my extreme homesickness adding to my devastation of the plane crash that took 109 lives from us. 60 of them had been students from Loyola Jesuit College in Abuja and out of the 60, Kechi Okwuchi was the only survivor. With burns expanding to over 60% of her body and over 75 surgeries later, Kechi's story is one of perseverance and determination. Phone interview with Kechi. .

What is this world turning into?! Hope these guys are made to pay for this crime if they did commit it to deter others with similar intentions.

Power Minster, Barth Nnaji didn't resign, he was sacked

I wondered because knowing Nigerians in power, they never resign voluntarily. They resign only when there's absolutely no way out, otherwise, they simply hold on to power till they retire.

President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday sacked power minister, Bart Nnaji, for compromising the privatisation process which he was appointed to see through.

A terse statement signed by Reuben Abati, special media adviser to the President, said: “ President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has accepted the resignation with immediate effect of the Minister of Power, Prof. Barth Nnaji.
President Jonathan thanks Prof. Nnaji for his services to the nation under the present administration and wishes him well in his future endeavours”.

Kim Kardashian increasingly becomes Kanye's Puppet

Kanye termed Kim's designer shoes ghetto & asked that she should do away with them
I don't get why a woman will let a man determine what she should have in her wardrobe and order her to get rid of all her (getto)  clothes not putting into consideration that she might have some emotional attachment to the clothes but outrightly goes ahead to replace them with his own idea of ideal fashion.

What kind of woman takes that from a man. Kim Kardashian is a power dresser in her own rights. She can be absolutely classy and stunning so I don't get where Kanye gets the idea that he should dress her up and make her give out her clothes. 

This attitude reminds me of 'Babie Girl'

I'm a blond bimbo girl, in the fantasy world, 
Dress me up, make it tight, I'm your dolly. 
You're my doll, rock'n'roll, feel the glamour in pink, kiss me here, touch me there, hanky panky... 
You can touch, you can play, if you say: "I'm always yours"

Kim Kardashian donated every single pair of her shoes charity, after Kanye West dismissed her huge closet as 'ghetto'.

Ladies, will you wear these shoes? How do stars manage in them anyway?

Heelless shoes seem to be the in thing for stars. I've been seeing quite a number of them wear these heelless wedged shoes and I have sincerely wondered how they manage to walk in them without tumbling over. I guess it won't be long before everyday people start rocking them too.

Oh my gosh! Kanye West Tweets that he just fu**ed Kim so hard!

I find this very difficult and disturbing to believe! Just when we're just coming out of the shock of Kanye West calling his lady a bitch, he's done it again by allegedly tweeting that he just fucked her real hard. I mean, what sort of man says that about his girl?
I hear he quickly removed it almost immediately he tweeted it but within those short seconds, some of his followers had already saved it!

I really hope his account was hacked and used by some wicked, twisted minded people otherwise, I'll say, 'Kim, please run!, run for your dear life!. Your man thinks you're nothing but a piece of dildo. *sorry kim, the truth hurts*

Phone accessories seller arrested with N27m hard drug

Officers of Nigeria’s National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, have apprehended a 26-year old man in connection with 8.5kg of methamphetamine concealed inside metal pipes on Tuesday.
The suspect, Afunaya Thaddeus Izunna, who sells phone accessories at Ikeja, Lagos, southwest Nigeria, was found at the weekend to be in possession of the drug during the screening of passengers on Ethiopian airline flight to New Delhi, India.
The drug is worth N27 million and was discovered when anti-narcotic officers insisted in searching the metal pipes inside his luggage.
The NDLEA Airport Commander, Mr. Hamza Umar said that the drug with a total weight of 8.5kg is one of the highest seizures recently recorded at the Lagos airport.
NDLEA quoted the suspect to have disclosed that he is married with 2 children.
“I am a trader. I sell phone accessories at Ikeja to take care of my wife and two children. It was a friend that gave me the metal pipes that I should take them to India for a fee. I did not know when, how and where it was packed. I was only given the bag containing the pipes. Unfortunately, when I got to the airport during screening, NDLEA officers discovered the drug and I was arrested. This is my first time of smuggling drugs. I hope my wife will understand and forgive men,” NDLEA quoted the suspect as saying.

Video of crazy Rantings of a Racist black woman on London Bus

Looks like this woman is a total lunatic. She was ranting and insulting white passengers that were in a packed London bus while affirming that  she's black and proud. She seems to be under the influence of some kind of hard drugs.

She began the insults by shouting: 'I'm so glad I'm born black and I'll die black. I was born African and I'll f**king die African. The only reason I was born in this country is because you f**king people brought my people here'

At some point she said: 'They all want to be f**king black, they all put fat in their lips and their bottoms and sit down on the sun bed to be black!'

Even the queen was not spared insults and she was very vocal in informing the world that she hates whites and can't stand them.

I beg, I can't quote everything she said, click on the video below to watch and hear her insanities. *Warning: The video is shocking, she used lots of insulting words. Don't click if you can't stomach it*

Young Nigerian Woman Cynthia Udoka Osokogu Murdered by Facebook 'Friends' in Lagos

The rate at which people disappear these days is so alarming. It's either they're kidnapped for ritual purposes or used as ransom to extort money from their families. Some are lucky enough to come back alive while others get killed even after the ransom has been paid. 

The story of Cynthia Ukoka is particularly painful to me because it could have been any of us. We've all got facebook, twitter and other social media friends. I have met and made lasting friends from social media and even stayed with a lady I met on Nairaland when I went to Port Harcourt sometime ago and she stayed with me in Lagos too when she came visiting Lagos. Till date, we're still friends, even though she eventually moved to the UK.

Alleged Cannibal Clifford Orji dies in Kirikiri Prison

I'm sure most Nigerians remember Clifford Orji who first made news about 13 years ago as the horrid man who roasted and ate human flesh. It was even said that lots of body parts were found stored in his freezer which he claimed he sold to notable politicians for rituals. 

He was arrested in 1999 under the bridge at Toyota Bus Stop along the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway in Lagos  and some people said he was mad at the time while others said he was a ritualise and not actually mad. 

While in  Kirikiri Mazimum Prison, he totally went mad, going about naked, vomiting and even defecating on himself. 
The bad thing is that he was never at any time admitted into any psychiatric home for treatment as most of the homes rejected him. 
He finally died on Friday, 17th August in his sleep at 46 years old
