|Celebrities / Ex-Boyfriend To Ariana Grande Mac Miller, Dies At 26 (Nigerians React) by Oluwolex2000(m): 10:49pm On Sep 07|
By Komolafe Daniel
US rapper, Mac Miller has died at the age of 26 of a drug overdose.
The rapper, whose real name is Malcolm James McCormick, was found unconscious at his home in the San Fernando Valley outside Los Angeles at around mid-day on Friday. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, according to a report by TMZ.
Miller was notably linked to Ariana Grande and he was there with her through her grief after 22 people were killed at her concert in Manchester last year. But they ended their two year relationship back in May and following the breakup, Miller struggled with sobriety.
His latest album Swimming was released on August 5th. According to reports, authorities were alerted by a male friend who placed a 911 call from Mac's home.
Miller has battled substance abuse issues for years. The rapper wrecked his G-Wagon by wrapping it around a utility pole back in May and was arrested for DUI and hit and run. He fled the scene but cops say he later confessed at his home.
Mac was supposed to start a tour next month before his untimely death.

|Travel / Third Mainland Bridge Shut Down Temporarily (see Alternative Routes) by Oluwolex2000(m): 10:38am On Aug 23|
- Komolafe Daniel
The Lagos State Government has said that the 3rd Mainland Bridge will be temporarily shut down for four days starting from midnight of August 23 to midnight of August 26, 2018 for Investigative Maintenance Test to be carried out.
The State Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Mr Ade Akinsanya, who disclosed this in a statement, said the decision was taken after due consultation with the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing.
The four-day closure, according to Akinsanya, will enable the contractors assess the true state of the bridge after which works would commence by the end of the year or early in 2019.
It would be recalled that the Federal Government had earlier announced plans to shut the bridge in July, but had to be shelved after due consultation with the State Government and wide deliberations with other stakeholders, who expressed concern about the indiscriminate parking of articulated vehicles on other alternative routes which would have adversely affected traffic.
Subsequently, a Joint Task Force set up to remove the articulated vehicles from the highway was able to achieve tremendous success.
Justifying the need for the closure, Akinsanya said: “The 3rd Mainland Bridge which was opened about 30 years ago by the then military government has had haphazard maintenance and repairs in the past which the present Federal Government is committed to correct by carrying out proper and continuous maintenance and repairs on it.”
Consequently, the State Government appealed for the cooperation, support and understanding of all motorists and residents, advising them to minimize non-essential travel and movements during the four-day closure.
Besides, Akinsanya said all traffic management agencies including the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and the Police, among others, have been mandated to ensure smooth flow of traffic on all the other alternative roads and traffic corridor.
Akinsanya urged motorists from Lagos Abeokuta, Agege, Ogba and Ikeja to make use of Oshodi via Mushin Ojuelegba to connect Carter Bridge into Island, while those from Ikorodu, Maryland are to make use of Funsho Williams Avenue, formerly, Western Avenue via Yaba to Oyinbo and connect Eko Bridge into Island.
Motorists from Okokomaiko, Festac, Oshodi-Apapa Expressway are enjoined to ply through Ajegunle via Marine Bridge to Ijora to connect Carter Bridge to Apongbon into Lagos Island. Conversely, motorists from the Island are expected to ply Eko Bridge and Carter Bridge into Mainland, while those in Lekki Ajah can also make use of Epe axis through Imota into Ikorodu.

|Crime / Meet The 2-year-old Chain Smoker Who Takes Up To 40 Cigarettes A Day (photos) by Oluwolex2000(m): 11:19am On Aug 15|
By Komolafe Daniel
A chain-smoking toddler from Indonesia is so addicted to nicotine that he manages to puff his way through 40 a DAY as his carefree mum looks on.
Rapi Ananda Pamungkas’ dirty habit started when he was just a baby after picking up used butts outside his mum’s market stall in hill station resort of Sukabumi.
However, within days the two-and-a-half-year old was hooked and he began constantly pestering passing shoppers to give him cigarettes.
The adults initially found the youngster’s demands endearing and plied him with cigarettes while laughing as he lit up.
But Rapi nicknamed Rap soon started becoming aggressive and throwing tantrums when he couldn’t get his beloved ”meroko”, the local term for cigarettes.
She said: ”My child is used to smoking while drinking coffee and eating cake. “He has been smoking every day for around two months. If I don’t give him a cigarette, my child goes berserk.”
Maryati said that Rapi began smoking at the age of just two months ago after collecting cigarette butts scattered on the road which older lads lit for him.
After that, he began demanding from his parents who run a food stall which also sells cigarettes, as well as hounding passersby for his daily fix.
Maryati said that it had been difficult to ban her child from smoking because he will “cry all day” if he can’t smoke.
She added: “If Rapi doesn’t get cigarettes he cannot sleep. He will start rampaging and crying.“It’s expensive, because we have to buy them for him. He likes to do it all day. He can smoke about 40 every day.”
The toddler’s dad Misbahudin, 40, said he also smokes but doesn’t know why his child started the habit.
