Two children, aged 3 and 4 tortured and starved by their aunt in Edo

Human right activist, Kola Edokpayi and his team have rescued two malnourished young children allegedly tortured by their aunt in Edo state.

According to the activist, the aunt took charge of the children after their parent's marriage fell apart and their mother absconded. Read report below:

The National Secretariat of the Joint Legal Action Aids (JLAA) where I am the State Coordinator instructed me to handle a matter where two kids were maltreated in the most barbaric and primitive manners by their Aunty who took charge of the kids after the marriage of their father and mother ended in marital imbroglio where the father and mother absconded to unknown destinations leaving their children to suffer in the hands of aunty.

We immediately contacted the person that reported the matter to our National Secretariat who gave us the description of the residence where the children were taken to in the interest of security.

Our investigation reveals that the kids were tortured by their Aunty in the most inhuman and callous manners and starved them on daily basis which made them look like kwashiokor.

Joint Legal Action Aids (JLAA) has volunteered to take the necessary legal steps possible to ensure that the culprit is brought to justice so as to serve as deterrent to the Jezebels that take delights in encroaching on the rights of Children.

Our cardinal responsibility is to defend the rights of the poor in our society as God loves the poor people that is why He created them so many.

Women should stop attacking Regina Daniels for marrying Ned Nwoko- Helen Paul

Comedian, Helen Paul, has reacted to the backlash 20-year old actress, Regina Daniels, has received since the news of her alleged marriage to 59-year-old Delta state billionaire, Ned Nwoko, surfaced online.

The attacks on Regina increased over the weekend after the pair made their first public appearance at the Federal University of Petroleum Resources Effurun, FUPRE, Delta State where Nwoko received an honorary doctorate degree.

In a post she shared on her Instagram page, Helen asked women to stop condemning Regina because they do not have any idea about what led her into such a 'marriage'. According to Helen;

''Hypocracy of the highest order, ladies are used to killing and condemning each other.
Do you know what she has gone through?
Do you know what pushed her and her family to go into such a marriage?
There are people who get married at an older age and their husbands are using them as punching bag.
Why are we quick to judge women? The woman did this, the woman did that, What about the men?
Please let us leave issues that are sorted and focus on matters that truly need attention.
Nigeria is so big. Plenty problems to be solved o...
Every body na sinner!
Better matter no go trend o.

Face coverings banned in Sri Lanka to prevent terrorists hiding their identities

Henceforth, it will be illegal for people to wear items of clothings that cover their faces in Sri Lanka

Following the multiple terror attacks on Easter Sunday and the explosions and shootouts that broke out on Friday, Sri Lanka government has issued an emergency law making it unacceptable to wear clothings that hides the face.

The new rule came into effect on Monday, eight days after the Easter bombings of churches and hotels that claimed the lives of more than 250 people at several locations. The law banning face veils was brought in at the orders of President Maithripala Sirisena who has been warned that more militants remain at large despite multiple arrests made.

Asidea the banning of face veils, a number of other measures have been taken to avoid another terror attack. Catholic Masses have been banned for the moment.

Sri Lanka’s Catholics yesterday celebrated Mass in their homes by a televised broadcast as churches across the island nation shut over fears of militant attacks.

FFK comes hard on lawmaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, for sitting at the feet of a Fulani Islamic scholar (photo)

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has slammed member of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, for sitting at the feet of a Muslim cleric.

Posting the photo above, FFK wrote;

Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, a Yorubaman and a three-term member of the Federal House of Representatives who wishes to be elected Speaker, sitting at the feet and clinging to the thighs of a Fulani Islamic scholar by the name of Sheik Dahiru Bauchi.

Has it really come to this? Do we have to sink to this level? Must we bow before them? Is it not better to die a free man than live a slave?

Some have argued that Femi did this because he is a Muslim and that he was merely displaying his deep respect for a northern Muslim cleric.

I find this contention, at best, intellectually dishonest and, at worst, specious and disingenious. It is also a pernicious lie that seeks to mask the bitter truth.

The question is whether any leading Fulani politician would ever crawl before, kneel at the feet of and grab the thighs of any Yoruba Muslim cleric or Sheik simply to win his support for any position?

I doubt it very much given the fact that Fulani Muslims do not even allow Yoruba clerics to lead prayers in mosques in the north.

The Yoruba Muslims in the north are compelled to open their own "Yoruba Mosques" where they can lead in prayer but they cannot lead in any mosque that the Hausa Fulani attend.

This is the case despite the fact that Islam came to the Yorubaland, through the Turkish traders, a good 400 years before it arrived in the northern region of what later became Nigeria through Usman Dan Fodio.

I have known Femi for over 40 years and I have always loved and respected him. I still do. And as far as I am concerned politics can never come between us. But the Femi in this picture is not the Femi I knew, loved and grew up with in old Lagos.

That Femi would NEVER bow or kneel before ANY man for ANY reason. That Femi was a man of honor, self-respect and dignity who put his family and tribe before anything or anyone else.

That Femi was one of the most brilliant minds of the new generation of young political leaders that emerged in the late '90's and that went on to do great things and achieve so much for their people and country.

Nothing could intimidate him and no-one could buy him. And neither would he ever beg or crawl before anyone or grab their thighs and knees in desperation.

Sadly things appear to have changed. May God deliver us! I still believe that he would make a great Speaker of the House of Reps and that he deserves the position.

I do not however believe that he ought or need to sell his soul or conscience for it. The Femi that I know is just too big and too good for that!

Let us remember the celebrated words of the late Leader of the Yoruba, Chief Obafemi Awolowo. He said, "Kaka ka dobale fun Gambari ka kuku roju ku" (meaning "We the Yoruba would rather die than bow down to the Fulani").

Those were the words of a courageous man and an insightful leader. How I wish we had more of such leaders in Nigeria today.

24-year-old man kills his 65-year-old dad in Anambra, sets his corpse ablaze

The police in Anambra state are currently on the trail of a 24-year-old man identified as Abuchi Onuorah, for allegedly killing his 65-year-old father, Onyiauke Onuorah, in Nando, in the Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State and setting the corpse ablaze.

A family member said Abuchi killed his father over suspicion that he was responsible for the death of his 51-year-old mother.

“The deceased was killed by his son. He claimed that his father was responsible for the death of his 51-year-old mother, Okwundu Onuorah. The deceased was alleged to have used diabolical powers to inflict disease on his wife for flouting his order not to attend the Omugwo (maternity treat) of their daughter, who was recently delivered of a baby. Onyiauke threatened his wife that if she went for their daughter’s Omugwo at Nteje, she would not come back alive. But the wife went against his order.

During the visit, she was struck by a strange ailment and she died two days later. Before her death, the woman revealed to her children how their father threatened to kill her through diabolical means if she dared to visit their sister that put to bed. So, when she eventually died and the message got to her children, one of her sons, Abuchi, dashed to their father’s room, dismembered him with a cutlass and poured petrol on his remains and set them on fire'' the family member told Southern City News
