Romance / Rapper Proposes To His Girlfriend Before Starting 20-yr Jail Term (video/photos) by austonclint(m): 10:13am On Jun 28, 2018
Rapper 03 Greedo proposed to his longtime girlfriend on stage at a concert on Monday night, but the wedding may have to wait a few decades — he's scheduled to begin a 20-year prison sentence this week.



According to TMZ, Greedo had his final pre-prison performance in Los Angeles on June 25. While performing his song "If I," he dropped down on one knee and asked Kei Bradley to marry him. She said yes and hugged her new fiance.

Greed will be locked up in less than 48 hours after pleading guilty to possession of more than 400 grams of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of a firearm this year. The incident stemmed from a 2016 arrest.

Crime / Pastor Gave Me Human Blood To Drink – Suspect by austonclint(m): 9:46am On Jun 28, 2018
A laundry firm operator, Emeka Chukwuemeka, has revealed how a pastor gave him human blood to drink in order to become a millionaire. .

According to Newtelegraph, Chukwuemeka was arrested by SARS operatives after his neighbors got tired of the stench from his shop on Sunday, at Oregun, Ikeja, Lagos, .

While speaking to newsmen, Emeka said: “I was in my shop, working one fateful day when my friend, Pastor Johnson, came to me. He said that he noticed I had been working as a drycleaner for long, but had made little or no money. .

That was how the conversation started. The pastor told me that there were young boys, not up to my age, who made it through the work they did, but also with the support of rituals. He said that I should face reality.

The pastor promised to assist me to overcome all my challenges. He asked me to get N5,000 ready. I rallied round and got the money for him. I didn’t know that what he was going to give me was human blood. .

He instructed me to drink the blood for three days, after which I would stop, and then wait for the result. I took it twice, I couldn’t continue. I couldn’t bear the stench of the blood. .

But nothing changed in my business after I drank the blood twice. I was planning to dispose the blood when some neighbours started complaining of the stench. This led to my arrest. .

Immediately I was arrested, the pastor’s phone line stopped going through.” The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal, said the suspect would be charged to court, while the fleeing pastor would be arrested.

Investment / Nigerians React To Sergei Mavrodi’s Death: "You Can’t Eat Our Money, Ask Abacha" by austonclint(m): 9:14pm On Mar 26, 2018
News broke out this morning on the death of the founder of the popular Ponzi scheme, MMM Sergei Mavrodi. Nigerians have however reacted to the news on twitter and according to a user, the founder deserved what he got.

The comment came mostly from Nigerians and people from other parts of the world whose encounter with the Ponzi scheme had been mostly unpalatable.

Some of the comments raised questions about the circumstances that surrounded his death, while the majority of the people believed that it was just a clear case of Karma.

Mavrodi inaugurated his pyramid scheme in 2011 and crashed in Nigeria in December 2016.

See some of the tweets below:

MMM founer Sergey Mavrodi is dead. Died of heart attack. U cant eat Nigerians money just like that, ask Abacha

Foreign Affairs / Ugandan Activist, Steven Kizza Drowns, Few Months To His Wedding by austonclint(m): 11:11am On Mar 21, 2018
A 24-year-old poverty alleviation activist, Steven Kizza, has died after drowning while swimming at Aruu waterfalls in Uganda, just few months to his wedding



He had his introduction ceremony at the end of last year. Kizza, an employee of an NGO based in Kamwokya, Kampala, had travelled to Gulu on a work-related trip. While there, he and other colleagues decided to go and have fun at the falls.

Moments before he drowned, he first took pictures, then he sat down and put his feet in water as his friends took pictures. Unknown to them, this was their last moment with him. .
.
Slowly, he slipped down the water falls and by the time they realized he was actually slipping from life, it was too late to rescue him. They sounded an alarm, but there was no one in vicinity to respond to their calls. Police came in later and managed to retrieve the body.

A young man identified as Somalia Abdullahi Shabege has climbed a radio transmission mast in attempt to commit suicide.

Shabege has refused to come down from the mast unless the Governor of Zamfara, Abdulhaziz Yari steps down as the Chairman of Nigeria’s Governors’ Forum, NGF.

Shabege was a political praise singer to the governor during the 2011 general elections.

He stated in a note he left behind that the governor abandoned him after he had promised to support him to boost his trade of tricycle fabrication, Daily Trust reported.

"We do not think Failure... We can't think failure... We don't think failure... We can't comprehend failure... We have a mindset... Failure is not an option... it doesn't work with Our system....#it is too late to fail Amen #we are too loaded to be empty Amen.. Have a blessed week ahead.." he wrote.

Romance / Bbnaija:see This Mouth-watering Photos Of Leo’s Rumored Girlfriend Leak On Line by austonclint(m): 11:51pm On Mar 14, 2018
When Leo turned down a chance to date dancer, Alex outside the Big Brother Naija house, many didn’t understand until the pictures of his beautiful girlfriend surfaced.



The cute young lady here has been rumoured to be dating evicted Big Brother Naija 2018 housemate, Leo Da Silva.

Her name is Melissa and she lives in London, United Kingdom where Leo grew up. They both follow each other on Instragram.

In all the interviews he has had since his eviction, Leo has said he does not what a relationship outside of the house with his fellow housemate, Alex, because he has a girlfriend.

It would be recalled that when Leo was evicted with his strategic partner at the BB Naija house, Ifu Ennada, after garnering an abysmal 10% votes, Alex cried for almost 24 hours over his eviction.

Ifu tells Pulse that she initially didn't get what Nina's deal was; was she intentionally trying to be dumb or strategy?

Evicted Big Brother Naija contestants, Leo and Ifu, have shared their least favourite housemates.

According to Ifu, she initially didn’t understand Nina’s deal; was she intentionally acting dumb or was it part of her strategy.

She also said that she eventually got to realize that she is a sweet girl.

Leo mentioned his former strategic partner and love interest Alex as his favourite. On his least favourite, he said he had none as he was on speaking terms with everyone.


Ifu on her least favourite

Did I have a least favorite housemate? Maybe, in the beginning when just got into the house and there were 19 of us. I wasn’t really feeling Nina because I just really couldn’t get what her deal was, like if she was intentionally trying to be dumb, [or] if it was like a strategy.

But as the weeks went by, I saw that she was actually a very sweet girl.

So I won’t say that she was my least favorite. I think maybe at certain points when people did some things to me, they would take that spot as my least favorite.

But it wasn’t for long. I think I belonged to everyone but I was for no one.



Ifu on her favourite


Towards the end of my stay in the house, I started getting fond of Alex. Because of my partner [Leo] I started understanding her better. I am actually rooting for Alex.

Leo on his favourite housemate

Everybody knows is Alex, obviously. We had a very great connection and I think the reason why we bonded that much is because I really believed in her abilities.

People don’t know that she is a very good writer, people don’t know that she knows how to conjure a lot of beautiful stories; short and long stories.

People don’t know that she is a very good host as well. So there a lot of things about her that people didn’t know that I knew, discovered and encouraged her about. That was what caused our bond.

Leo on his least favourite

Least favourite? I really didn’t have a least favourite because I spoke to everyone and I was surrounded by a lot of intelligent housemates, and getting knowledge from them was very exceptional.

I have not been in the midst of a lot of people in my generation that are that brilliant in a very long time. So that was just a great highlight for me.

Leo and Ifu were evicted from the Big Brother house on Sunday, March 11, 2018.

“Persistence and true spirit of sportsmanship have kept me on. Aside that, I’m also sweet in bed, I am good and very proud of myself. Try me and you will be amazed. I deliver very well. I can drive women crazy,” he revealed.

Romance / 14 Year Old Female Student Nabbed With Marijuana In School Photos by austonclint(m): 10:13pm On Feb 25, 2018

A 14-yr-old female student has reportedly been arrested for selling marijuana in school.
The Grade 9 student at a high school in Verulam, was arrested by officials of Reaction Unit, South Africa, after being caught with 24 wraps of marijuana on Friday morning, February 23.


Instablog9ja reports that the officers received information that the suspect was in possession of narcotics with the intention of selling them to other pupils during their lunch break.


According to the reports, the suspect reportedly confessed that the marijuana had been given to her by her 17-year-old sister who is a grade 11 student at the same school.

She also added that due to her sister’s absence from school on the day of her arrest, she was asked to hand it over to another student who was meant to approach her during the lunch break and assist her in selling the drugs to other students at R5.00 each.

The course of action taken by the officers remains on clear but the fact is that there has been a significant rise in drug usage amongst African youths and teenagers in the last two years.

The rise of illicit drugs among Nigerians
In May 2017, a Twitter user @Olubaba60detailed how he nearly died from an overdose on Tramadol and codeine. He also frequently used Refnol. His story is just another story of thousands of young Nigerians who are into these dangerous drugs.

In November 2016, Eromo Egbejule published a story titled “Is there a growing drug epidemic in Nigeria?“.

In his article, he states that there is a serious drug culture in Northern Nigerian ranging from cocaine, codeine to sniffing fermented human waste known as Jenkem which produces hallucinatory effects.

In March 2016, the Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency discovered a super laboratory for the illicit production of methamphetamine located at Asaba, Delta.

The laboratory had the capacity of producing between 3,000kg and 4,000kg of methamphetamine per production cycle.

In the 80s and the 90s, Nigeria was mostly a trafficking point for narcotics from South American cartels who wanted to smuggle drugs to Europe. Nigeria’s security system was poor which made it ideal to move drugs.

The situation has grown worse. Nigeria is still a trafficking point but now we have turned into a country who produces and consumes these drugs.

Cartels in South America produce meth in Nigeria because of cheap labour and poor security network. Nigerians don’t just move cocaine anymore, they now consume it. The expensive nature of the drug makes sure its clientele is mostly the rich and wealthy.

While cocaine isn’t accessible to the middle class, drugs such as codeine, Refnol and Tramadol are. They are easily accessible on the streets of Lagos despite the best efforts of the government. The Federal Government is still using kid gloves to deal with drug abuse
