Pregnant woman in labour dies after allegedly being delayed by policemen for not wearing face mask in Ogun State

A pregnant woman who was in labour died today after she was allegedly delayed by police officers for not wearing a face mask in the Ogun Waterside local government area of Ogun state.

According to reports, the deceased, Waidat Adedeji, went into labour and was being rushed on a motorcycle by one of her children to the Ita-Otu General hospital when they were stopped by police officers at Sowore checkpoint. The police officers inquired why they were not wearing face masks and also not obeying the social distancing order of the state government.

It was gathered that the policemen allegedly delayed the motorcyclist for hours before they were later released. The woman reportedly died some minutes after.

Youths in the area blamed the police for her death. As a way of protest, they took her corpse and dumped it at the Abigi Divisional Police Headquarters.

Confirming the incident to Tribune, the spokesperson of the state police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, denied the claim that police officers caused the pregnant woman's death.

“Our officers were not responsible for the pregnant woman’s death. There were three occupants on a motorcycle as against the directive of the state government that only two people should occupy a motorcycle at a time. They were stopped and interrogated on why they did not obey the sit at home order. They informed the police that the woman was being conveyed to hospital for delivery, and having noticed that the woman was in pains, our men allowed them to proceed,” he said

Future sued by his 'babymama' Eliza Reign who claims he’s never met their 'daughter' and ‘hasn’t paid a penny’ in child support. He responds on Twitter..

Future has reportedly been sued by one of his babymamas, Eliza Reign Seraphin, who is claiming he has never met their one-year daughter and hasn’t paid a penny in child support.

According to The Sun, the American rapper was recently declared the father of the model's child after a paternity test was submitted as part of an ongoing lawsuit.

In new court papers obtained by The Blast, Eliza claimed that Future whose real name is Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn is yet to play his role in their daughter's life.

The 29-year-old Haitian model based in the US alleged: "For over a year, the Plaintiff herein has refused to acknowledge his paternity of the parties’ minor child."

"He's never paid a penny in support for the minor child, and in fact is never even met the minor child."

Future sued by his
She also sued Future, 36, for allegedly defaming her name by refusing to admit his paternity and making accusations about her mental health and sexual conduct.

The documents claimed: "Ms. Wilburn has stated in public forums on both the internet and in his music that Ms. Seraphin 'stole my last name.'

"This allegation that Ms. Seraphin 'stole my last name' refers to Mr. Wilburn’s misguided idea that Ms. Seraphin was somehow able to unilaterally impregnated herself with Mr. Wilburn’s DNA (rather than because of the two years of unprotected sex the parties had previously engaged in) and that by giving the child who was subsequently conceived as a result of these sexual relations Mr. Wilburn’s last name, that Ms. Seraphin thereby 'stole' Mr. Wilburn’s last name."
Future sued by his
In 2018, she said she had an on and off affair with Future for 2-years and in the process got pregnant for him. She also alleged that the rapper asked her to get an abortion, and when she refused, he threatened to physically harm her.

Eliza reportedly claimed she took these threats seriously and reported him to the Police.

She is suing the rapper for libel, slander, and emotional distress.

Soon after news of the new lawsuit surfaced, Future who on Mother's Day celebrated six of his babymamas and left Eliza out, took to Twitter to react in a series of tweets.

Rappers, Drake and Future, have just revealed some of the celebrity women they may have slept with, using billionaire beauty enterprenuer Kylie Jenner, as the point of reference by calling her a 'side piece' in a new song that was just released on Wednesday night.

The undisclosed song from the two rappers went viral after it was debuted during Night Owl Sound's Instagram Live and shared on Twitter. ... "Yeah, I got 20 damn Kendalls," Drake raps. "Young slim baddies and they in Vogue / Yeah, I got 20 f--kin' Gigis."
"Yeah, I'm a hater to society," Future can be heard rapping in a video obtained by fans
 "Real s--t, Kylie Jenner, that's a side piece / Yeah, I got 20 motherf--kin' Kylies."

                                         Drake and Future call Kylie Jenner a

The rappers also mentioned Kendall Jenner, top model and sister to Kylie and also Gigi Hadid in their lyrics.
"Yeah, I got 20 damn Kendalls," Drake raps. "Young slim baddies and they in Vogue / Yeah, I got 20 f--kin' Gigis."

Drake and Future call Kylie Jenner a
 "A song that mark ran last night on night owl sound set shouldn't have been played," he wrote on his Instagram Stories. "It's a song that leaked 3 years ago and got scrapped shortly after. He was just going too deep in the drake/ future catalogue."
He continued, "Last thing I'd want to do is wake up having any friends of mine feeling disrespected so I just had to say that to start off the day."

Back in October in 2019 after Kylie's split from boyfriend Travis Scott, Drake and Kylie were spotted together on several different occasions fuelling rumors they were dating.
Drake in 2018 was involved in a feud with Jenner's brother-in-law Kanye West when the 'Jesus Walks' rapper allegedly revealed Drake had a secret son to fellow rapper Pusha-T, who then turned the gossip into a series of diss tracks.

Native Doctor commits suicide in Abia

A native doctor in Abia state, identified as Onyeonoziri Friday, has allegedly committed suicide in front of his home in Ukpakiri village in Amaise autonomous community in Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia State, leaving behind a pregnant wife and a son.

The state Commissioner of Police, Ene Okon, who confirmed Onyeonoziri's death to newsmen, said the native doctor hung himself in front of his shrine which is located at the back of his apartment. He was said to have been battling with series of illnesses and became frustrated and depressed after several efforts to get healed through different sacrifices proved abortive.

A source in the area who gave her name as Ogadinma Nwachukwu told The Naton that they woke up on Sunday morning to the cry of help from his compound.

''It was this morning that we started hearing cries from his house and when we all gathered, we discovered that our brother, whom we all sat yesterday with is gone.
When we asked the wife, she said that the husband told her that he was going to pass the night at Ntighauzor. After that, she went inside the house while the husband told her that he wants to leave his machine behind the house. According to her, she came out in the morning, only to see the corpse of the husband dangling on a tree behind their house.” Ogadinma said

The police say investigation is ongoing to determine if there is any foul play.

Use your God given wisdom at this time- Chude Jideonwo tells Christians as clergymen peddle conspiracy theories linking Coronavirus and 5G network

Award-winning media personality, Chude Jideonwo, has asked Christians to use their God given wisdom at this time that the world is battling the Coronavirus pandemic.

Chude made the call as more Clergymen come out to whip up conspiracy theories linking the Coronavirus pandemic to the emergence of the 5G networks.

Use your God given wisdom at this time- Chude Jideonwo tells Christians as clergymen peddle conspiracy theories linking Coronavirus and 5G network

Recall that yesterday, a video of Chris Oyakhilome, founder of Christ Embassy churches surfaced online in which he claimed the Coronavirus and the 5G network being proposed is part of the Antichrist's plan for a new world order.

In a post shared on his Facebook page, Chude said if such men can come out boldly to pass such ignorant information, it is important for those who know better to also step out and enlighten the world that the Coronavirus pandemic and 5G network have no corrolation. He appealed to Christians not to listen to their pastors for now because the pastors themselves are susceptible to fear and misinformation.

Read his post below
I cannot believe that we actually have to say this.
But as one Christian to another, and since I am lucky to have a public platform people pay attention to, I believe I have a responsibility to speak out at this time. And quickly.
Just like me, on this matter of Covid-19, your pastors are not experts.
At this time of mass panic, your pastors are susceptible to fear, to misinformation, and - without checks and balances - to misuse use their influence and platform to inadvertently cause harm.
But if those who are peddling conspiracy theories that may end up killing millions are bold and fearless with it, I think it is important for those who know this 5G conspiracy theory (like all other conspiracy theories over the past millenia) is destructive and deeply dangerous to speak out.
If the anti-Christ or the West or China wanted to destroy anyone, there are smarter ways than a virus that kills their own people and tanks their own economies.
Conspiracy theories always sound deep and bold. But they are nonetheless deeply irresponsible without facts, without proof, without informed corroboration.
Please, use your God given wisdom at this time and think of all those who are dying and all those who are saving them.
It’s not conspiracy theorists that are saving lives at this moment at the treatment facilities in Lagos, Enugu and the world.
They are not the ones who will help you if your family members get infected.
It’s doctors. It’s researchers. It’s scientists. It's public health experts. They are the ones saving lives. It’s the partners who have worked with them over the past three decades - including oyinbo billionaires who have done more to save lives in this country via fighting polio, malaria, HIV free of charge - that are saving more lives. They have saved more lives than any and all pastors.
Listen to them when it comes to health and disease.
And this is what the VAST MAJORITY of experts, doctors and researchers are saying: as at today, based on all we know about Covid, any link with 5G is NIL.
Please, don’t allow authority figures who don’t what they are doing confuse you at this time with the confidence of their errors.
They might even be motivated by love and wanting to spread what they consider to be truth, but it is still an irresponsible thing to do.
You can love them, you can pray for them, you can listen to them when it comes to doctrine. But when it comes to disease, PLEASE ignore them. For the sake of you and your families.
“But beware lest somehow this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak.” — I Corinthians? ?8:9? ?NKJV??

FG has politicized the fight against COVID-19- Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has accused the Federal government of politicizing the fight against the spread of coronavirus, describing the "selective support" to states as unfortunate.

Citing Lagos state as an example, Governor Wike said the commercial hub of the nation has received so much support from the Federal government but the same support has not been extended to Rivers state which he according to him, produces a greater percentage of the nation's wealth as an oil producing state.

Speaking in a statewide broadcast on Sunday April 5, Governor Wike said
 "It is quite unfortunate that the containment of coronavirus has been politicized by the Federal Government. While Lagos State received a grant of N10billion as a commercial hub, Rivers State as the nation’s oil and gas hub that produces a greater percentage of the nation’s wealth has not received any support from the Federal Government.
"One wonders why Federal Government should single out a state out of 36 States to give support. Does it mean that support will come when a State has a record of over 50 infected persons before it gets support. No state should be seen as more important than any other state. This is a Federal Republic. No state is superior to others.
"Rivers State is entitled to support from the Federal Government. Every day, we are inundated with letters from the Federal Government to allow oil companies to fly in expatriates to drill Oil. Then we ask, what is the status of those coming from Lagos? Nobody has told us their status as regards coronavirus. If they come to come Rivers without us knowing their status, what will be implication assuming they have the virus." he said

Gov Okowa extols Obi of Owa at 82

Delta Governor, Sen. (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa, has congratulated the Chairman of Delta State Council of Traditional Rulers and Obi of Owa Kingdom, His Royal Majesty, Obi (Dr) Emmanuel Efeizomor, as he clocks 82 on March 10.

Felicitating with the foremost traditional ruler, he described him as “a symbol of peace, stability, unity and development" of his people of Owa Kingdom and Deltans in general.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olisa Ifeajika, in Asaba, the governor eulogised the renowned traditional ruler, saying he was an exemplary man of peace and extreme humility.

According to him, Obi Efeizomor remains not only a shining light and custodian of the culture of the Owa people, but also a revered monarch whose wise counsel to governments at the state and federal levels over the decades, remain invaluable and enduring.

Okowa urged the monarch not to waver in his belief in the peace and unity of his fatherland, but to do all within his power to ensure that his domain continued to be a model of peace to other kingdoms.

"Your majesty, you have remained a symbol of humility and contributing immensely toward the attainment of Stronger Delta by our administration.

"Under your reign, the Owa kingdom has produced a Senator, Deputy Governor and a Governor and all of these has brought incredible infrastructural transformation and continuous peace to the kingdom.

"I urge you to remain committed to the unity of our fatherland, and continue to do all within your power to ensure that your domain continues to enjoy limitless peace.

“As Chairman of Delta State Council of Traditional Rulers, you have continued to play active roles in our Stronger Delta vision and we are grateful for your kind support always.

“As a peace builder, you have done your best to positively impact on the development of your kingdom and the state; your humility and friendliness have made you a beacon of everything Godly, cherished by all who meet you," he said.

The governor added that "as a government, we appreciate your good counsel at all times and all you and your colleagues are doing at the grassroots to make governance easier in the state.

“On behalf of my family, the government and people of Delta, therefore, I congratulate you, Your Royal Majesty, Dr Emmanuel Efeizomor, OON, Obi of Owa Kingdom, on the occasion of your 82nd birth anniversary.”

He prayed that Almighty God will endow the monarch with longer life and wisdom to enable him continue to serve his kingdom, God and humanity.

I have no intentions taking over from Buhari in 2023 - Governor Fayemi

Governor Kayode Fayemi has reacted to claims of plotting to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

Fayemi who is expected to complete his second term as the governor in 2023, stated that report is totally untrue. The Ekiti State Governor denied working tirelessly towards building structures to bring to reality his “rumoured presidential ambition in 2023”.

A statement released by his spokesperson, Segun Dipe reads;

“Fayemi is a sitting governor and he chairs the Nigeria Governors’ Forum. He enjoys these roles and he is playing them to the best of his ability.
“His objective is that of engaging in processes such as negotiation, mediation, conciliation, and arbitration in order to move a seemingly violent conflict into non-violent dialogue, where differences are settled through conflict transformation processes or through the work of representative political institutions.
“He is interested in what is happening in every part of the country and, like he himself once stated, anything that affects the peace of any state governed by a member of the NGF would surely affect the solidarity of the forum.
“People like Fayemi bring people together. You find them in all kinds of places and in all kinds of circumstances. They are very lovable people who wish the very best for other people. Despite that his action as a peacemaker and reconciliator means a lot to other people, the governor is a modest person and he is focused on other people’s happiness.
“As a bridge builder, Fayemi is never pushy; he just wants everyone around him to find peace and achieve happiness. The governor no doubt knows a lot of people and doesn’t fail to bring everybody together; he listens carefully and is sincerely interested in how everyone is doing.
“Like any other bridge-builder in the world, Fayemi likes to help to connect people, he is quick at recognising what someone else needs and his mind starts searching for ways to help the other person move ahead.”
