'You were too busy feeding ill thoughts, bad wishes and rotten emotions' - IK Ogbonna's wife Sonia writes

Amidst the trouble in the marriage of Nollywood actor, IK Ogbonna, his wife Sonia has taken to her Instagram page again to share a cryptic post.

She wrote: 'You can choose between REACTING to people or situations or ACTING DELIBERATELY. Reaction is triggered and DETERMINED by others/their behavior towards us, it’s an impulse, a need to respond in the way we were approached - often aggressively or negatively and it’s sort of a mechanism of defense. But before you REACT you need to ask yourself “Is this action reflecting my true nature and who I really am or wish to be?” . Don’t allow anyone have a power over you. I choose to be in charge over my life so I ACT DELIBERATELY. Meaning, I want my actions to be a reflection of WHO I AM, no matter what & no matter circumstances. What you say or think is who you are, how I respond is who I am. I love me some me especially when I stay true to myself , against odds. Life isn’t perfect but it’s SOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL, and I wish you recover from whatever you are going through so you can as well realize the same, before it passes you by because you were too busy feeding ill thoughts, bad wishes and rotten emotions instead filling your mind with gratitude & love. I’m a light baby, can’t you feel it.'

Bisi Alimi raises alarm after he notices Nigeria's anti-corruption officials following him around at a conference

Bisi Alimi has raised alarm after he noticed he was being followed by Nigeria's anti-corruption officials as he attends an anti-corruption conference in Denmark.

The gay rights activist said he finds their presence unsettling and they've been following him closely in a menacing manner and sitting in on all his sessions.

Someone suggested that they might be trying to intimidate him not to expose anything embarrassing about Nigeria and Bisi agreed those were his thoughts exactly.

He wrote:

You know you are either important or a threat when you have your country Anti Corruption officials following you around at an Anti Corruption conference.

See not that I give a two cent, but I will also like to say, I find their presence around a little unsettling.

Aside from that, it is really nice to see LGBT issues being linked to global corruption conversation for the first time and thanks to Matt Beard and AllOut for giving me and Bisi Alimi Foundation the opportunity to speak on this issue at the Transparency International Conference.

At least, I know one thing for sure, I wont go missing in Denmark.

He added:

I will be honest and say that I for once feel really threatened by this very subtle act of aggression I am experiencing. They really dont have to be around me, they really dont have to talk to me, they really dont have to sit close to me in every session but they are. This is a conference of over 1500 people, and the fact that i kept seeing them everywhere I turn is not a mistake or a coincidence.

She stated that the late professor left a suicide note behind, but she cannot reveal the content of the note to journalists. Police spokesman DSP Moses Yamu told reporters that he was yet to get the details of the incident from the Divisional Office.
