“Good guys who treat ladies nicely and with respect are so boring, the relationship tends to become uninteresting” – Lady says

0

A lady has caused confusion on Twitter by revealing something about the kind of guys they have to deal with in a relationship.

According to the pretty lady identified as @missmwenya on Twitter, when a man is always nice and treats his lady with respect, the relationship tends to become uninteresting.

She therefore counselled other women to stay away from men who tend to be overly nice because they don’t inject much vivacity into a relationship.

See reactions her post generated before she deleted it.

@Philanelf said; its all fun and games until you hit the wall, and then you blame men for your terrible choices.

@SJP_theCule; Lol, the not boring ones are the reason y’all be saying men are trash though

@Dinks_A; I think the trick is in striking a good balance between pure and toxic

@singived10; u cheat, they say he cheats, u don’t they say he is boring i pity u lovers. u have a lot of work to do.

@MuJayMwila; Hmmm how would you tell that this guy has pure intentions?

@MukishaMajid; You people enjoy crying?

@StephenMiyoba; Pain makes us feel alive

Imo killings: Traditional rulers held meeting without informing security agents – State police command says

0

The Imo state police command says the police and other security agents were not informed of a proposed meeting of Traditional Rulers in Njaba LGA before gunmen attacked the meeting venue and killed two monarchs on Tuesday, October 19. Read the initial report

The command made this known in a statement signed by its spokesman CSP Mike Abattam.

According to Abattam, the police at about 3pm got a tipoff that hoodlums ”suspected to be members of the proscribed IPOB/ESN” are attacking the venue where the Transitional Chairman of Njaba LGA was holding a meeting with some Transitional Rulers.

He said the state Commissioner of Police immediately dispatched the command’s tactical teams to the scene and on their arrival at the scene, they were informed by the police patrol teams patrolling the area that the hoodlums fled into the bush on sighting them.

“At the scene, it was revealed that the Transitional Chairman of Njaba LGA Mr Emeka Ihenacho invited and was having meeting with fifteen Traditional Rulers of Njaba communities without informing the police or other security agencies.

Unfortunately, two of the traditional rulers namely, HRH Eze S. C Osunwa of Ihebinowere Autonomous Community and HRH Eze Barr A. E Durueburuo of Okwudor Autonomous Community lost their lives in the attack while HRH Eze A. N Onyeka ( JP ) of Nkume Autonomous Community sustained gun shot injury” Abattam said

He added that the police station in the community was recently attacked and raised down by hoodlums and that during the attack, two police officers lost their lives. He mentioned that the command had to post Policemen to the area on vehicular patrols to help in checkmating crimes and criminalities until when a new police station will be rebuilt.

He added that the command is exploring all avenues possible to see that the fleeing bandits are arrested and prosecuted.

EndSARS: One year after, no evidence of killing at Lekki tollgate – FG

0

The Federal Government has said that one year after a massacre was alleged to have occurred at the Lekki toll gate on October 20, no evidence has been provided to back the claim

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, made this known during a press conference on the first anniversary of EndSARS on Wednesday, October 20.

Lai at the press conference said the Federal government is yet to receive any evidence for the alleged killing.

“One year later, and despite ample opportunities for the families of those allegedly killed and those alleging a massacre to present evidence, there has been none: No bodies, no families, no convincing evidence, nothing. Where are the families of those who were reportedly killed at the toll gate? Did they show up at the Judicial Panel of Inquiry? If not, why?

Recall, gentlemen, that after bandying different figures, Amnesty International finally settled at about 12 people killed. On its part, CNN went from 38 people killed to two to just one, after a supposed global exclusive even when the network had no reporter on ground at the Lekki Toll Gate on Oct. 20th 2020.” he said

Lai Mohammed also insisted that men of the Nigerian Army did not shoot at the protesters who gathered at the Lekki tollgate on October 20, 2020.

“On Oct. 20th (2020), members of the security forces enforced curfew by FIRING SHOTS INTO THE AIR (emphasis mine) to disperse protesters, who had gathered at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos to protest abusive practices by the Nigeria Police Force Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS)

Accurate information on fatalities resulting from the shooting was not available at year’s end. Amnesty International reported 10 persons died during the event, but the government disputed Amnesty’s Report, and NO OTHER ORGANIZATION WAS ABLE TO VERIFY THE CLAIM (emphasis mine).”

With the preponderance of evidence against any massacre at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20th 2020, we are once again reiterating what we said one year ago, that:

The military did not shoot at protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20th 2020, and there was no massacre at the toll gate. The only ‘massacre’ recorded was in the social media, hence there were neither bodies nor blood.”he said

The Minister stated that 11 out of 28 States that raised panels on last year’s #ENDSARS protest have submitted reports to the National Economic Council (NEC) and that all those indicted by the various judicial commissions will face trial.

”At its meeting on 15 October 2021, the NEC received an update on the Reports of Judicial Panels of Inquiry into Allegations of Human Rights Violations against Members of Nigeria Police Force and other Security Agencies.

Note that 28 States and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) – under the auspices of the National Human Rights Commission – had set up Judicial Panels/Commissions of Inquiry to investigate allegations of violations of human rights levied against members of the Nigeria Police Force and other security agencies, especially members of the disbanded SARS.
Out of the 28 States, 11 States (Abia, Ekiti, Enugu, Gombe, Kwara, Nasarawa, Ogun, Ondo, Osun, Plateau, and Rivers) have submitted their final reports to Council. Governors of other States have also indicated that their reports would be submitted soon.

Following deliberations on the recommendations of the panels, NEC agreed/resolved as follows:

Each State, in collaboration with the Federal Government, shall establish modalities for the settlement of all monetary compensations awarded by the Panels.

Already, as resolved by NEC, a number of States have set up Victims Compensation Funds, from which several victims have already received payments of sums awarded to them by the panels.

The Council directed State Governors to immediately forward copies of final reports of the panels to their Attorneys-General for prompt arraignment and prosecution of all indicted persons.

Where incidents in the reports relate to matters of discipline, in addition to prosecution, NEC urged the Nigeria Police Force to take disciplinary action on the affected officers in line with the provisions of the Police Act 2020.”he said

Facebook planning to change its name next week to shake off multiple scandals

0

Social media giants, Facebook will rebrand itself with a new name next week in a bid to distance itself from a series of embarrassing scandals.

The firm’s original social media site, Facebook , will likely keep its moniker, but Facebook Inc., the parent company which also owns Instagram and WhatsApp, will rebrand.

Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg plans to reveal the parent company’s new name at its annual Connect conference on October 28, but it could be unveiled sooner, the Verge reported.

The change is expected to position Facebook’s social media app as one of many products under a parent company, which will oversee products like Instagram, WhatsApp, Oculus and more.

It will also help distance the firm’s flagship social media brand from future bad publicity, with recent whistleblower testimony from former worker Frances Haugen managing to contaminate the reputations of Facebook and Instagram.

The move could also benefit the company’s reputation which has suffered hit after hit in recent years.

It was accused of facilitating the spread of misinformation during the 2016 US presidential election, prompting a a series of congressional hearings and policy changes, including the introduction of third-party fact-checkers and further transparency in political advertising.

In 2019, the Federal Trade Commission fined Facebook $5 billion for allowing 87 million US profiles to be harvested for information used for political advertising by British firm Cambridge Analytica.

Some of the advertising was used to help the 2016 campaign of former president Donald Trump.

Most recently, former Facebook employee Frances Haugen released a trove of documents dubbed the ‘Facebook Files’ to the Wall Street Journal.

The internal research suggests that Facebook promoted divisiveness as a way to keep people on the site. It also showed that the company knew Instagram harmed young girls’ body image and even tried to brainstorm ways to appeal to toddlers by ‘exploring playdates as a growth lever.’

Haugen, who anonymously filed eight complaints about her former employer with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, told 60 Minutes earlier this month: ‘Facebook, over and over again, has shown it chooses profit over safety.’

She claimed that a 2018 change prioritizing divisive posts, which made Facebook users argue, was found to boost user engagement.

That in turn helped bosses sell more online ads that have seen the social media giant’s value pass $1 trillion.

‘You are forcing us to take positions that we don’t like, that we know are bad for society. We know if we don’t take those positions, we won’t win in the marketplace of social media,’ Haugen said.

She also blamed Facebook for spurring the January 6 Capitol riot.

Haugen, who spent two years at Facebook after working at Google, Yelp and Pinterest, testified in Congress on October 5.

“Somebody’s son should better find me” – Toke Makinwa reveals she’s tired of being single and celebrating her birthdays with friends

0

Media personality Toke Makinwa has cried out about being single and approaching her birthday without a man claiming she needs a boyfriend before her birthday.

Toke Makinwa whose birthday is on the 3rd of November took to Twitter to lament over being single saying somebody’s son must find her before her birthday because she doesn’t want it to be girls outing again.

According to her, she’s tired of being asked what she’s doing on her birthday by her girlfriends hence she needs to find herself a boyfriend before her birthday comes since she doesn’t want it to just be another girls outing.

Toke Makinwa might be joking about finding herself a boyfriend before her birthday but the way she said it makes her sounds desperate for a man before her birthday just to avoid going out with her girlfriends alone who probably come with their boyfriends.

Toke Makinwa is a very good friend of Tiwa Savage but has completely kept quiet over her setape saga but rather is searching for a boyfriend for herself so she could celebrate her birthday with him and not her girlfriends.

0

The Nollywood star, Tonto Dikeh took to Instagram to lament about the difficulties in addressing her former bestie and leading Nigerian crossdresser Bobrisky.

Bobrisky was born as a man. But the Internet celebrity prefers to be addressed as a woman and has often displayed feminine attributes and behaviour.

On Tuesday, Tonto Dikeh threw some shade at him. Although the actress did not mention names, however, all fingers pointed at Bob whose real name is Idris Okunneye.

“Where our papa violence de oooo,” Tonto said amid her own ongoing saga with ex-boyfriend and politician Prince Kpokpogri. “I miss shim (because we never know whether na man or woman e be, so for now, we shim).”

Bobrisky in a recent interview had stated that he is a man but that posing as a woman has gotten him to the level he is now.

“I was a servant when I was a man,” Bobrisky told lawyer and journalist Chude Jideonwo, adding that most women were unaware of the huge power they wield and that they don’t know how to use their “resources”.

Single mum with nine kids sentenced to death for drugs pleads for her life

0

A mum of nine has been sentenced to death in Malaysia after being convicted of drug possession and distribution charges.

Hairun JalmanI, 55, was given the death sentence last week at the Tawau High Court in Sabah, after being caught with 113.9g of meth in 2018.

Her case has received global attention after a video of her was shared on social media.

Single mum with nine kids sentenced to death for drugs pleads for her life

The video captures the moment after JalmanI had been given the news that she will be sentenced to death for drug-related offences.

She can be seen in the video crying and appearing to beg for her life as an officer escorts her from the courtroom.

News of the case has prompted Amnesty International Malaysia to speak out about how women are treated in the country.

They revealed that 95% of all women given the death sentence in 2019 were convicted for drug-related offences.

Amnesty International Malaysia stated the women who were caught peddling drugs are subjected to violence, abuse and exploitation by others but under current laws, these factors are not taken into account when sentencing these women.

Speaking on Twitter, Amnesty International Malaysia wrote: “Hairun’s life chances were stacked against her. She was a single mother in Malaysia’s poorest state trying to support 9 children. Her case is an example of how Malaysia’s death penalty punishes the poor w/ particular discriminations against women.”

They added: “Why is the right to life so easily denied by the govt? Who is kept safe when a single mother of nine is sentenced to death and removed from her children? What justice is served when the structural inequalities and oppressions that created the conditions for her charge remain?”

Amnesty International Malaysia has also called on the government to join the 108 countries in abolishing the death penalty.

#EndSARSMemorial: Only governors have power over rallies – Falana tells police

0

Human rights activist, Femi Falana has again countered the police over its prohibition of #EndSARSMemorial in some states across the country.

Speaking at the commemorative lecture and public presentation titled, ‘One year after Endsars, 35 years after Dele Giwa and the quest to remake Nigeria’, Falana stated that Nigerians have the right to protest with or without a permit issued by the police.

He also averred that only Governors are vested with the power to “manage public meetings, rallies and processions” under the Public Order Act.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria said;

“Last year, some lawyers questioned the legal validity of the decision of 28 out of the 36 state governors in the country to institute judicial commissions of inquiry to investigate serious allegations of police brutality after the #endsars protests in October 2021,” he said.

“I was compelled to draw the attention of such lawyers to the case of Chief Gani Fawehinmi v. Ibrahim Babangida (2003) 12 WRN 1 where the Supreme Court held that the power to set a tribunal of Inquiry is vested in state governors and that the power of the President to institute a commission of enquiry under the Tribunal of Enquiry Act is limited to the federal capital territory.

“Consequently, while the state governors set up the judicial commissions for each of the states the panel instituted by the President was limited to the federal capital territory.

“In view of the foregoing, governors should take control of the security situation in all states of the federation. In particular, state governors should henceforth exercise the exclusive powers conferred on them to manage public meetings, rallies and processions in line with the provisions of the Public Order Act and the relevant judicial authorities.

“The Inspector-General of police and commissioners of police should stop usurping the powers of state governors to infringe on the fundamental right of the Nigerian people to protest peacefully against public policies considered inimical to their interests.

“State attorneys-general are enjoined to ensure that police officers are prosecuted whenever they refuse to provide adequate security for participants in public meetings, rallies and processions in contravention of section 83 (4) of the Police Establishment Act, 2020 which provides as follows:

“Where a person or organization notifies the police of his or its intention to hold a public meeting, rally or procession on a public highway or such meetings in a place where the public has access to, the police officer responsible for the area where the meeting rally or procession will take place shall mobilize personnel to provide security cover for the meeting, rally or the procession.”
