I have seven years before getting married – BBN Khloe.

Big Brother Nigeria alumnus, Khloe, has said she doesn’t see anything wrong in being a single mother. In a chat with Sunday Scoop, she said, “I’m not looking forward to having kids anytime soon. I still have about seven years before I settle down. Everything has to be in order. I don’t want to bring kids into the world and make them suffer. I want to be a good mother. My career is right in front of me and it needs my attention. However, God’s time is the best. I could have a kid next year; you never can tell.

“I wouldn’t blame women who have opted to become single mothers and it’s something I can do, so far I have peace and happiness. People don’t understand that marriage is not the ultimate in life. Some people are married but they are dying inside. A family doesn’t necessarily have to consist of a father, mother and children; it could just be a mother and her kids.”

Refusing to comment on her recent spat with an Uber driver whom she had accused of being rude to her, Khloe said, “Whenever I do positive things, nobody says anything. But if it’s something negative, it goes viral. It makes me feel bad that people cannot just appreciate something good. Nobody called me when I launched my charity, and nobody commends me when I look good in pictures. But people would rush to call me when something is bad and I don’t feel comfortable with that. I don’t want any negative vibes. Other people might want to milk negative publicity to trend but I am not interested in that.”

The former BBN contestant also explained why she started a charity for children. “It is something I had been doing before; I just decided to make it official now. So far, I have been doing everything from my own pocket. I just love to make kids happy and help less privileged children enjoy what their parents cannot provide for them,” she said.

Can you share with us your birth date and who your parents were?

I am Mrs Beatrice Afolayan, aka Mama Agege, born on March 14, 1939 in Agenebode, Edo State.  My parents were Mr Patrick Bossey and Mrs Rose Bossey. My father was a nurse while my mother was a petty trader.

Was it your father who told you your birth date?

Yes, it was my father who wrote down my date of birth. Being an educated person, he documented the birth dates of all his children. When I grew up, I saw where he wrote it though he had already told me before then.

What is your position among your father’s children?

I am the first child among my mother’s children. My father had three wives and my mother was the first wife.

Which schools did you attend?

I attended Roman Catholic School, Ilorin, Kwara State, and United School, Ilorin, where I taught as a pupil teacher for some years after my education before attending Mary Immaculate, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, to train as a teacher. I attended schools outside my hometown because my father, being a nurse like I said earlier, was always transferred and I moved with my parents whenever the transfers came.

Where did you work after training as a teacher?

I taught at the United Zonal Education Board School, Ilorin; St. William’s Roman Catholic School, Ilorin; Mount Carmel Catholic School, Oro, Kwara State; and Oke Pakata Zonal Education School, Ilorin.  I was also on transfer to Nusara-Ud-Deen Primary school, Mushin; Lagos Anglican Girls School, and State Primary School, Agege, Lagos.

When did you retire?

I got my first appointment on February 1, 1957 and I retired on February 29, 1992 after 35 years of service.

What was your experience in the places you worked?

There was a cordial relationship among workers in the places I worked. The people were caring and we loved one another.

How did you meet your husband?

I met him when I was working as a teacher in Ilorin. He was also a teacher and from Kwara State. His house was not far from ours. There was a time we both came to Lagos. He joined the ministry and continued working as a teacher.

What attracted you to him?

My husband was a kindhearted and generous person. He loved children and was helpful.

How did your father react to your decision to marry outside your tribe?   

My father was bitter about it. He wondered why his first child would marry outside his tribe. He didn’t allow me but I forced myself into the union. I think we had about three children before my father accepted him.

My husband was calm amid it all and when my father saw how lovingly he treated me and my siblings, he had no option but to love him.

I remember when my father called my husband and said, “Dele, you have married my first child and automatically you are my first child. Take care of my children.” Since then, my husband took it upon himself to care of my siblings and they also regarded him as their father. There was a time that about 10 of my relations lived with us in Lagos. My husband was kind to us.

Where is your husband now?

He is resting in the bosom of the Lord. He died on December 19, 2013. The day he died is still a shock to me. I went to morning mass that day and when I returned, I saw him standing by the window. I asked him if all was fine and he said it was not. I told him that I knew he went to the toilet twice in the night before daybreak.

He said he woke up twice truly and went to the toilet. I felt maybe he was experiencing pile. I told him to use the medicine for pile as I wanted to go to the bank as there was no money at home. He thanked me and I left. It was not up to five minutes when the driver was about to park the car on the bank premises that a boy staying with us called me on the telephone.

I missed the calls as I searched for the phone in my bag. When I called him, he said “Grandpa couldn’t talk.” I was shocked and asked what happened to him since I just left home. We had to return home quickly.

I called my husband as I entered the house but he didn’t talk. I beat his chest gently. I had to call our children residing nearby to come and see what was happening to daddy.

We took him to a hospital and the doctor tested him and said he was gone. My daughter, Kemi, asked the doctor where her father had gone to. The doctor in turn handed over the stethoscope to her to conduct the test on her father.

We took him to a nearby General Hospital as a friend, who was a retired nurse, said a skeletal work was ongoing at the facility then. When we brought him in, the nurses on duty, who knew him as a funny man, asked us what daddy came to do in their hospital unknown to them that he was no more. It was also confirmed by the doctor, who attended to us, that he was gone. Some of the students he taught at Oro Kwara State were about to honour him with an award when the incident occurred.

How have you been coping without him?

I attend church regularly. God has been faithful. The lovely children God gave me have been wonderful.  They do not allow me to lack anything.

What do your children do?

I have six children – three boys and three girls. The first child is a retired naval officer. The second child, who is a female, lives in Canada with her family. The third child is a businesswoman.  The fourth child is a pharmacist in the United States of America. The fifth child, Kemi (present during the interview) is a brand product distributor/marketer. The sixth child works in the US.

How do you relax?

Any time I am not busy, I don’t do much. I only pray with my rosary.

Do you have preference for any kind of music?

I don’t have any particular music. I love all music because I love dancing.

How sociable would you describe yourself?

I am a partygoer. I like to attend parties. I thank God for blessing me with a sound health. If I am invited to a party now, I will attend.

What is your favourite food?

I like amala and pounded yam. I eat rice occasionally.

Do you have any regrets?

I don’t have any regrets. I thank God the way he created me. I thank God for everything.

How would you compare teaching during your time and now?

It’s incomparable. There is a lot of difference. Most teachers these days, not all of them of course, no longer do the job well. The way they treat the pupils in their care is nothing to write home about.

What do you think is the way out?

I think the way out is for the government to be up and doing. There should be inspectors that will be visiting the schools to check the teachers unscheduled. That was what happened during my time.

You are a teacher like your husband. Why is none of your children in the profession?

It is because children of nowadays do what they like. One cannot force careers on them. I must confess that l also didn’t push them towards it.

Do you do any exercise?

I walk round the room and sometimes in the morning, I lift my legs up and down to stretch them. It is like the way I always did when I was a teacher. I taught all subjects at the primary level.

How do you feel at 80?

I feel happy and give God the glory. I see some of my mates and what they do and how they are. I am grateful to God because it is not my doing.

Did you ever think you would attain this age?

No, I didn’t. It is God that blesses one with long life. I cannot attribute it to any food or lifestyle.

What is your advice to teachers and would-be teachers?

I advise them to be dedicated to their job. Since they have decided to be in the teaching profession, they should do it well as it is what gives them their daily bread. Nobody can handle any job he or she is given flippantly and expect God to bless it for him or her. But if they are committed to the job, God will bless whatever they get out of it.

Oduduwa Varsity disowns suspected cultists arrested at OAU.

Related image
The founder of Oduduwa University, Ipetumodu, Dr Abdulrahman Adegoke Adedoyin, has denied the claim that students of the institution were planning to attack the neighbouring Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife, describing it as ridiculous.

Adedoyin told Sunday Vanguard: “The management of the Oduduwa University, Ipetumodu, via Ile Ife is shocked by the claims that our students plan to attack Obafemi Awolowo University, Ife, Osun State (OAU). This claim to say the least is embarrassing, ridiculous and false.

“We make bold to say that those students arrested as cultists in OAU were neither our students nor had any link with OUI. We have gone through the institution’s portal and our records and could not trace their names.

“In view of this, there is no basis to spew publication or harbour any thought that our students are hatching plans to attack Obafemi Awolowo University.”

The educationist went on: “Why is OAU linking us with the challenges it is currently battling with? How can a student/staff population of 5,000 attack a student/staff population of over 60,000 people?

“No serious private university in Nigeria can allow cultism in its school. Nobody enters Oduduwa University without undergoing serious security scrutiny. Uniformed  policemen, plainclothes security men have been stationed at strategic places inside the university to control our security at all times.”

Image result for gun gif
A 14-year-old primary 5 pupil in Ghana has been arrested by the Police for pulling a gun on his headmaster.

According to reports, the incident happened at St Anne’s Primary School in Damongo in the West Gonja District of the Savannah region of the West African country, MyNewsGh reports.

The pupil Amadu Bashiru threatened to kill other teachers with the gun and as a result, a formal complaint was lodged at the police station by the headteacher of the school leading to his arrest.

A teacher of the school told Bole-based Nkilgi Fm the pupil had a misunderstanding with some other students who were all punished by the Headteacher of the school.

The following morning, information got to the Headteacher of the school by schoolmates of little Bashiru that he was wielding a locally manufactured pistol after he was punished, threatening to kill any of the teachers of the school who will make a second attempt to cane him.

The Headteacher of the school, Mr Amos Akuro quickly rushed to the Damongo police station to lodge a formal complaint.

He was subsequently arrested and when his home was searched, the exact pistol he had flaunted hours earlier was found.

The Police in Damongo are currently investigating the matter to unravel how the suspect came about the weapon since he has no license to possess it.

Nigerian arrested for attempting to kidnap boy, 4, at Maamobi, Ghana.

NIGER MAAMOBI
A Nigerian has been arrested for attempting to kidnap a boy around the Maamobi polyclinic in Accra.

The suspect reportedly ran into a nearby house and changed his clothing but his cover was blown after residents of the house gave him up. The others in the car sped off.

The arresting mob then took him to the Kotobabi police station. He has currently been rushed to the Police Hospital for treatment following the attack on him by the mob.

The boy is safe with the police.

On Friday, two other Nigerians were shot dead in the Upper West region for robbery.

Nigeria Police Arrest 26-year-old Fake Drugs Manufacturer.

Image result for drugs gif
A 26-year-old Victor Oguwa, a suspected fake drugs manufacturer, has been arrested by the police in Bauchi.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Kamal Datti, disclosed this while addressing newsmen on the arrest of some suspects in Bauchi on Saturday.

He said the police acted on credible intelligence and raid a black sport at Gwallameji area on June 13, and arrested the suspected fake drug producer.

According to him, the police recovered 71 bottles of locally produced codeine, 30 bottles of Tutolin, one carton of ORS used for codeine productions and one pot of codeine ready for refilling.

Others include 100 empty scavenged bottles, 60 bottles top cover and 1 20 product name tags.

“The case is under investigation after which the suspect will be charged to court,” Datti said.

The police spokesman assured that the command would not relent in its efforts to rid the state of crimes and criminality.

However, the suspect (Oguwu) in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) denied manufacturing fake drugs, claiming: “I was set up to pay for those items not knowing what was inside and what is meant for.

“I paid N140,000 that my friend from Onitsha asked me to pay and collect the goods before he comes from his journey.

“Not knowing that police are coming to arrest me, in fact, I don’t know anything about fake drugs manufacturing, it was unfortunate he involved me in that. ”

He, however, appealed to the police to temper justice with mercy.

How Tinubu Begged Abacha For Post - Bode George.

 
A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Bode George, has commended Kola Abiola, the son of the late MKO Abiola, the acclaimed winner of the Jun 12 1993 election, for exposing former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and other “June 12 opportunists.”

George said this during an interview with a correspondent on the telephone while reacting to Kola’s allegations that after the annulment of the June 12, 1993 election, Tinubu approached the late military dictator, Gen. Sani Abacha, and begged him for a commissioner appointment in Lagos State.

According to Kola, it was after Tinubu had lost out that he decided to join hands with the National Democratic Coalition to fight for the actualisation of the June 12 mandate.

George, who is also a former military administrator, hailed Kola for stating the facts even as he lamented that many opportunists were seeking to twist history.

He said, “It is true that Tinubu went to beg for a commissioner position. He was in the Villa and Gen. Oladipo Diya is a witness. He (Tinubu) said he wanted to be a deputy to a military administrator and when all that didn’t work, he went into his activism.”

The PDP chieftain hailed Kola for deciding to make a documentary of the June 12 saga.

George said Kola must not be victimised for saying the truth since, as the first son of MKO, he was an insider.

He said, “Most of what Kola said is true. He spoke from the heart and he was trying to set the records straight in the face of the many narratives. He had been looking for who would help to recognise the June 12 saga so that his father wouldn’t have died in vain.

“In the course of this, he had bottled up so much. He went through a lot, having lost his mother and family businesses during the struggle. So, he was setting the records straight so that people would not rewrite history.”

The PDP chieftain, however, said Nigeria had yet to learn from the June 12 saga.

He said the lessons of June 12 go beyond declaring a holiday or immortalising MKO.

George said, “Now, June 12 has been adopted as a national holiday but have we learnt any serious lesson from it? Have we done anything to ensure that the mistakes of the past are not repeated?

“Yes, people are pontificating and trying to use it as a political tool but believe we have not learnt anything.”

The PDP chieftain said Nigerians were more united during the June 12 struggle than today and argued that more emphasis should be placed on uniting the nation through the legacy of June 12.

Attempts to speak with Tinubu’s media aide, Tunde Rahman, proved abortive as he neither returned calls nor responded to a text message on Saturday.

‘How Fulani herdsmen rescued us from kidnappers’ – Nigerian journalist recounts.

Image result for ‘How Fulani herdsmen rescued us from kidnappers’ – Nigerian journalist recounts.
A Nigerian journalist simply known as Adenrele has recounted how he and a=others were rescued from kidnappers den in Ondo state by some Fulani herdsmen.

The journalist took to social media to share his experience saying he was travelling along the Owo-Ifon Road in the state when they ambushed by some hefty men who didn’t in any way look like herdsmen.

Read the rest of the story below;

Let me share a kidnap story we experienced two days ago in Ondo state. Listen folks, I don’t know about other stories making round the news about herdsmen kidnapping people on the highway, but they’re certainly not herdsmen.

This personally happened two days ago along Owo-Ifon express way in Ondo state, we headed for this journey as early as 7am, on getting to Ipele junction of that same axis after Elegbeka(for those conversant with that route) at a pothole a group of hefty men numbering about 4

Came from the bush, threw some woods on the road before the pothole stopped us and ordered the four of us in our car. May I chip in this,my uncle who was at the wheel already told us before we started the journey how the rate kidnapping is on the rise. Infact while on our journey

We listened to the news about a LG chairman or who was shot by herdsmen along Ikire in Osun state who was heading to Ibadan. Whenever we approached any pothole, he sped past without hesitating if the car was gonna break down or if the tire would burst.

But at this particular Spot, those hefty men already threw that wood so we won’t be able to go past it.

They came out, pointed heavy guns at us, left our car at that spot, these men didn’t look like herdsmen, within me, I began to wonder if that would certainly be the end, a whole lot of thoughts ran Through my mind, one of them led us with a gun, the two were beside us at both sides, one behind us, all held on to their guns firmly, we walked through the bush path for like an hour without getting to any point where we were going to meet anyone.

We got to a stream, they stopped and one of them said he was pressed he was allowed to go defecate, we were left with 3 men. After walking that long, we were exhausted, we sat down with our hands tied to our legs, at this point no I was already saying my last prayers.

They asked us if we had anyone who was going to rescue us, don’t forget we’re yet to get to their “camp” as alleged, we sat by that stream. But luckily for us,I sighted a little boy who isn’t more than 10yrs old, looking tattered, on sighting this boy, he left and my mind skipped

The other guy who went to defecate came back and they cracked jokes, they untied us, at that point, they already collected our phones, but I had my other Android phone in the car. I couldn’t move at that point, they hit the gun on my butt. We came to a little hut.

Their leader was right there and 5 others were already kidnapped tied to trees. Mind you, I sighted a little boy at that stream, not knowing the little boy traced and followed us. After spending like 3hours with heavy torture at the hands of those criminals, that little boy came

At this point with 7 men herdsmen came with that little boy, they rescued us all. They were all speaking in their language either they were making incantations I wouldn’t say, they collected those guns and shot two men at the spot.

At this point I was literally in heaven I didn’t know when I urinated on my body, the others fled including their leader, they took their knives and cut those ropes. They led us through the bush path till we got to Oriohin one other village along that axis. We took a cab that brought us back to the spot where our car Was parked.

At this point,we don’t know if we should continue our journey to the village or head back to Akure. I was speechless all through the journey till we got to the village. When we got to the village it was my uncle who narrated our ordeal at the hands of those miscreants.

I just regained my sanity yesterday. I don’t know about other kidnap happening across the country, but ours wasn’t even herdsmen but hefty men who don’t look like herdsmen. As a matter of fact,herdsmen were those that rescued all of us.

We were actually heading to the village for Project. Those men rescued us without charging us a dime. They left their own hut with their cows and when we got to that village where we took a vehicle back to where our car was parked, my uncle gave them 20k from what he had on him as part of the project money.
