A few days ago, some of you watched the video of the beating and torture of 2 women for allegedly stealing pepper. (In case you missed it, see it HERE). Well, there’s an update. Ever since the video was made public, a few people have been working behind the scenes to find the men who did this. Some sort of breakthrough has been achieved with the involvement of the Chairman of Ejigbo Local Council of Lagos.
He’s worked his socks off on this case since some people got in touch with him.

Two young Nigerians based in Manchester, United Kingdom have been punished by a Crown Court for their part in a Nigerian inspired internet banking scam which could have netted a phenomenal £19 million after hacking the accounts of nearly 2,500 people.
The Mail Online reported, yesterday, that Aderoju Bammeke, 22, and his girlfriend, Jessica Ogunyemi, 20, both of Manchester, were the UK ‘platform’ for a Nigerian ‘phishing’ scam that made £41,000 in just two months.
Some of the aggrieved governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are meeting with Nigeria’s President, Goodluck Jonathan, in Abuja to discuss issues concerning their defection of some of them to the All Progressives Congress.
Already present at the State House in Abuja are Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto State , Banagida Aliyu of Niger State and Rabiu Kwankaso of Kano State.
The President disclosed this during an interview in Paris, France, on December 6, 2013, Saturday, shortly before his departure to Nigeria at the end of a two-day summit on peace and security in Africa hosted by President Francois Hollande.
Mr. Jonathan said he gave the approval for the disbursement, following series of complaints by local and international human rights groups on the conditions of barracks which housed the detention camps.
Few weeks after the story of "fake miracles" scandal rocked a pentecostal church in Akwa Ibom State, the man, Bishop David Amoussou, who was fingered as the mastermind of the arranged instant healing scam has again been embroiled in a very messy wife snatching tango.
The City of Truth Chapel International, aka, Holy Ghost Embassy, under the leadership of Bishop Israel Usoro ran into trouble when some pastors of the church resigned and opted to blow the lid off the wind of instant miracles blowing in each of the church service, which they described as fake as beneficiaries of such miracles were hired and paid. They had claimed that the “new form of evangelism” was introduced to the church by Bishop Amoussou when he came as a guest minister early in the year.
I pledge to Nigeria my country, to be faithful, loyal and honest…
I have kept my pledge, being faithful and loyal; now it is time I am honest. We need to all come forward in the interest of life, to discuss and deliberate on if and how to break up Nigeria into manageable pieces. The nation is simply too large, the people too sheepish and the leaders too opportunist and rapacious for it to work. And in the interest of life, dignity and progress, smaller projects will be more favorable.
