Crime / Man Who Destroyed 5 Nigerian Embassy Cars, Arrested by hitng: 7:05am
The 32-year-old Nigerian man who destroyed five embassy cars in London, yesterday, has been arrested by the police.
.
.
According to reports, Jeffery Apkovweta Ewohime initially caused problem at the Belgian embassy where his passport was confiscated.
.
.
After he was turned back by the embassy because he arrived "late", he lashed out by using iron rods and stones to destroy vehicles parked within the embassy's premises.
.
.
Muhammed Babandede, the Comptroller General of Immigration Service confimed the incident in a statement Monday night.
.
.
According to him, Ewohime arrived the Nigerian mission in London for passport services. He said, "He arrived late and was told by the Security that the Mission has closed for the day. .

He went about destroying Nigeria's diplomatic vehicles worth hundreds of thousands of taxpayers money. The passport in question has been issued since 6th of June 2019. .

He did not leave any self-addressed envelope for delivery." Meanwhile, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, senior special assitant to the president on Foreign Affairs, has also reacted to the embassy incident.

In a statement by her media aide, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, Abike described the action as "unpatriotic, and an unconscionable act of indiscipline."

In her account of events, Dabiri-Erewa said she received a report that Ewohime went to the Nigerian Embasy in London on Monday.


He had approached the Embassy to collect his passport which expired since November 2017, at about 2 pm, and was told collection of passports closes by 1 pm.

He then insisted on collecting his passport, and was told to bring his collection slip which he could not produce. According to reports from the Embassy, it would be wrong to hand over his passport to him, without his collection slip.

He, thereafter, left agitated and returned from a nearby hotel to destroy about seven cars, five belonging to the mission, and two to visitors who parked nearby.

Celebrities / I Almost Died After Losing N12m Movie File – bose Alao by hitng: 10:54am On Jun 15
2016 is a year Nigerian actress, Bose Alao, will not forget in a hurry as her N12m film project got lost. In an exclusive chat with Saturday Beats, the actress noted that at that stage in her life, she almost died.

She said, “The lowest point of my career was when I shot a movie in 2016 and I lost the whole file, everything. This was a movie that had stars like Majid Michel form Ghana, Mercy Johnson, and other big stars.

I lost everything, including my weight as I was reduced to a size six from a size 10; however, life goes on. Before I detected that I had lost my files, I had sent the movies to about four countries for viewing but it was rejected because they were blank files. I did not have a backup.

“I cried my eyes out and it almost affected my marriage because I got angry easily so I snapped at my husband a lot. It was not about the N12m I lost but the stress that was attached to making the movie. I almost died during that period. I would advise my colleagues to always have a backup and never rely on any video editor.”

Crime / Makeup Artist Escapes Being Killed By Ritualists Who Acted Like Clients by hitng: 10:53am On Jun 13
A makeup artist Maypro.101 on instagram has explained how a client contacted her online and how she took a trip to Benin for the said job. On getting there, she discovered they were ritualists/kidnappers. She narrated her story giving all the thanks to God. What she wrote;

My trip to Benin on Sunday was a complete nightmare. I wish I could go back to sleep and wake up to think it was all a bad dream.

I was contracted by a client online (from my Facebook business page precisely) as usual to do the makeup so I get a ticket and got to Benin to find out that my contractors were kidnappers and ritualists...my mouth is practically too heavy to speak of what my eyes saw and all I went through. It was my unexpected period that showed up unannounced, that God used in saving me. I'll tell the story in full some other time but certainly not now because I need to get this off my mind first.

I'm grateful to God I made it out of there in one piece. Items taken can be replaced but not ones life. Who am I that this God is mindful of.

I just want to out this out to other Artisans, please please please be careful. Scrutinizing is sometimes not enough, pray for every job and then listen for your "GO" before you set out.

Education / School Where Fees Are Paid In Exchange Of Plastic Bottles by hitng: 12:53pm On Jun 10
A Lagos school has made it possible for parents to sleep with their eyes closed after a groundbreaking initiative launched by the school management.

This came to light after Morit International School located in Ajegunle adopted the RecyclesPay Education Project, an initiative of African Clean Up Initiative (ACI), an environmental non-governmental organisation in Lagos.

The school accepts empty plastic bottles from parents and guardians in exchange for payment of their children’s school fees.

Wecyclers, the recycling company attached to the project, comes to collect the plastic bottles after getting a substantial amount of plastic wastes. The amount given to parents is determined after weighing what each of them has brought.

The initiative was adopted to ease the burden of parents finding it hard to pay their wards’ fees.

Celebrities / Omotola Jalade-ekeinde Narrates How She Almost Lost Her Daughter by hitng: 10:00am On Apr 13
Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade -Ekeinde has narrated how she almost lost her daughter Princess Ekeinde, at barely one-year-old.


Her first daughter, Princess Ekeinde recently graduated at 22, and Omotola went down memory lane, recalling how she almost lost Princess at barely one-year-old.

She narrated:

“It all started with her running a temperature. I can’t remember how many hours anymore. She is our first child and we had not much experience. We gave her some medication, but she didn’t seem to get better. Then suddenly, she slipped into what seemed to be a coma. I panicked, we all did, even neighbours and everyone, was screaming and suggesting all sorts.

“She was clenching her teeth fiercely, then an old woman we knew in the neighborhood suggested we put a spoon and pour salt into her mouth (totally wrong move. Please do cold shower instead). We rushed her to the hospital, and at first, the doctors were a bit reluctant (I guess they thought it was a lost case). However, almost without much hurry, she was worked on and miraculously, she came back!
“We were told it was ‘high fever’ (and) it had affected her brain and she could probably not develop normally or be able to catch up with her peers. Short of saying (turning into) vegetable. As people of faith, we called on God, used proper medication and most importantly, applied extra lessons and treated her normal as others.”

Continuing, the mother of four revealed the challenges her daughter had to face because of her predicament.

At first, it was challenging. As she grew, she struggled, mostly with her sight. She couldn’t see things right in front of her! Even in school, she would be put in front and still not see.

“At every level, Princess worked extremely hard, harder than others. Always trying to prove everyone wrong, and passed. Every time we feared or doubted, she passed with flying colours and moved to the next phase! Miracles before our eyes. Today, she not only finished well from University, she also insists on going for her Masters and is conquering all her fears.”

Celebrities / Ifu Ennada: How I Made My First Million by hitng: 9:49am On Apr 13
Former BBNaija housemate, Ifu Ennada, has disclosed how and when she made her first million, stating that it was at the age of Twenty Two.


Ifu said this, following her post that N500k given to her by Soso Soberekan was not a huge amount and this elicited reactions from different people.
The entrepreneur took to her Instagram page to also apologise to her fans for telling them to change their circle of friends if no one could give them N500k without sex.

She further explained that what she meant was that being from a poor background does not mean staying poor or having a poor mentality.

She wrote;

“Pls Read…Some people were angered by a section of my last post – where I talked about 500k not really being a huge sum and how I feel having someone in your circle who can give that to you isn’t abnormal. Some even asked if I had people who could give me that kind of money before BBNaija…
“First of all I’m sorry if I cut across the wrong way. It wasn’t my intention to be that way.

“And yes to your questions; long before BBNaija I had people in my life who gave me 500k… My short film – Tears of a Broken Virgin was brought to life after a friend of mine gave me 500k to produce it. His name is Solomon. This was 2yrs before Big Brother. You can watch my short film by clicking the link in my bio.
“My beautiful people, being broke doesn’t mean you should also surround yourself with people in the same financial state as you.

“You can be broke but have rich dreams and in order to bring your dreams to reality it’s always good to include people who have the capacity to move your life forward in your circle.

“For people to lavishly support your dreams they need to see why they should, there has to be something you’re bringing to the table.

I was a financially poor girl with big dreams but I was always working on myself, being resourceful and adding value to people even the rich… one day I’ll tell you how I made my first 1.8 million at age 22 – even though money was mismanaged”

Sports / Female Weightlifter’s Hand Snaps Into Two While Attempting 110kg Lift (Pics) by hitng: 5:29pm On Apr 12
A weightlifter’s arm snapped in multiple places while she attempted a 110kg snatch. Gaelle Nayo Ketchanke, 30, was competing in the women’s 76kg category for France at the European Weightlifting Championships in Batumi, Georgia.

The athlete had already tried the weight twice and failed both times.

But she approached the bar for a third attempt – which was being broadcast by the European Weightlifting Federation through a live stream.

Ketchanke eased through the first part of the motion and flicked the bar from her waist up to behind her head.

Yet as she squatted, ready to push through her legs to stand up and complete the lift, her left arm gave way to horrified screams from the crowd.

Her left elbow had snapped and bent behind the back of her body as she tried to drop the weight safely.

But the weight of the bar and the grip from her lifting gloves kept it in her hands – and as she tried to slide it on to her back she fell and it crushed her on the floor.

The stream flicks to the French team as they watch their teammate writhe in agony after the ghastly episode.

The camera’s microphones still pick up the strongwoman’s harrowing screams as she is treated by medics, despite the commentators attempts to avoid the subject.

Ketchanke, who won silver at last years championships in Romania, was rushed to hospital after leaving the stage on a stretcher, according to Inside the Games.

She has broken her left arm in two places and suffered a dislocated elbow, reports suggest.

Celebrities / Ikechukwu Threatens To Shoot SARS Officer That Harasses Him by hitng: 5:16pm On Apr 12
Nigerian singer and actor, Ikechukwu has warned of what will happen if any official of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) ever try to harass him the way they harass other Nigerian citizens.

The entertainer shared a heartbreaking video of SARS officials harassing and beating a man because he refused to let them search his phone.

He went on to condemn the officers for terrorising citizens rather than protect and serve them. In his post, he threatened to disarm any SARS personnel that harasses him as he would attack back and shoot him with his own gun.

Commenting on SARS brutality, Ikechukwu wrote:
“When i say this i really mean it, the day these type of individuals run into me i might end up dying that day.
Truth is how much humility and calm are u supposed to have? Even if we want to believe that God is using the situation to test us , will he test us to our death and demise?

For what reason is such an individual wearing the uniform of one who is supposed to protect and serve the same person he is bludgeoning and raping of his rights in broad daylight so bold and so arrogant with slaps to follow and insults. Then more planking .

My God i beg u please cos i will disarm that fool and shoot him with his own gun. I swear on it. If u powers that be cant do what is necessary then step the Bleep outta office and outta the way and allow people who are about change and fairness and rules and regulations and proper protocols and due process take ur place.

For u are the tumbleweed and the winds are high , the storm that in brewing is nigh, overspill is inevitable, and the drops i feel upon my umbrella. This rain shall pour and it will be torrential. Nuffsaid #ENDSARS”
