84  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Muslim Youths Beat Up Principal, Teachers, Students To Pulp Over No-Hijab Policy on: 24-09-2014 06:23 PM
The new education policy in Osun State claimed its first casualty on Monday as fierce-looking Muslim youths invaded the Baptist High School, Ejigbo, and beat up the students and teachers.

The principal of the school, Mr. Layi Oguntola, was thoroughly beaten and injured. Oguntola, as of the time of this report, was said to be receiving treatment at the Baptist Medical Centre, Ejigbo.

The attackers said they came because the school authorities stopped some Muslim pupils from wearing the hijab.

The hijab is a scarf that covers the head and chest, specially worn by a Muslim female.

Our correspondent learnt that the attackers stormed the school while the students were already seated in their classrooms.

They were said to have headed straight for the Principal’s Office and asked Oguntola to apologise for sending the hijab-wearing students away from school but the principal refused to do so.

There have been protests when the Governor Rauf Aregbesola administration recently introduced a new education policy, which entails merger and reclassification of schools in the state.

The Baptist conference specifically said it would not allow hijab-wearing students in its schools.

On Monday, the attacked students and teachers were said to have run for refuge at the palace of the Ogiyan of Ejigbo, Oba Omowonuola Oyesosin. The monarch was also said to have been instrumental to the rescue of the wounded principal from the attackers, made up of mostly youths.

The attack forced the Baptist High School and other schools in the town to close abruptly for the day as police were deployed in the town to forestall reprisal.

Some Muslim students of the school were said to have been turned back last week for wearing hijab on their uniforms and their parents were said to have reported the case to members of an Islamic sect in the town.

Tension started building in the town following the attack and the speculations that the attackers were also planning to set ablaze the United Baptist Church, close to the school.

Some Christian youths were also said to have mobilised to defend the church.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mrs. Folasade Odoro, when contacted, said she would find out the details of the incident and get back to our correspondent.

Commissioner for Information, Mr. Sunday Akere, confirmed the incident, which he described as an unfortunate one.

He appealed to the people of the state to shun violence, saying the state government in collaboration with security agencies would investigate and get to the root of the matter.

He said, “It is unfortunate that this happened at a time when we are already achieving peace in the area of schools reclassification.

“We are calling on all religious leaders and stakeholders to refrain from taking steps which could lead to the breakdown of law and order.”
85  Forum / Relationships & Romance / Ladies: Reasons Men Fall Out Of Love on: 24-09-2014 06:20 PM
For every action humans exhibit, there is always a cause beneath. Consequently, this article looks at various reasons why men fall out of love in a relationship they initially cherished.


It's a given that men are likewise emotionally needy. They also want to be showered with deluge of love the same manner in which they give. Ditto with compliments, care, calls, etc. And depriving them of virtually all these is a sure way of shifting their attention elsewhere. Truth is, not every man will go rent a mega phone and a loud speaker to announce that he wants to be loved too- except he has some mental challenges.


Experienced house wives would tell you that bearing any ill will for one's mother-in-law is a quick recipe for marital frustration and possible separation. You'd agree with me that mums always have influence on men and not being on good terms with them means you leave the men in an awkward dilemma of making a choice between you and them. And we all know what the choice would be, don't we?


No matter how blindly in love a couple could be, a time would come when the intensity of the attraction would subside. Now, here is a stage to exercise caution. Since you both have somewhat recovered your 'eyesight', flaws of the other partner becomes visible. And if yours is to constantly pick quarrels with your man like you under the influence some steroids, then you might as well sooner or later forfeit your prince charming.


If there is anything that could make a grown man be urgently admitted to the hospital like he was suffering from lassa fever or become sober like he had been severely starved for a month, then it is a heartbreak gotten from his spouse's sexual unfaithfulness. More often than not, the trust, love and connection consciously or unconsciously diminishes.


A man that is struggling to cope with the financial and material demands of his partner might eventually fall out of love to save his finances from being sentenced to life imprisonment. No matter how much the love of a man is, it doesn't take more than an expensive partner to wake him up from that daydream. And trust me, he'll wake up- they always do- however sweet it is.
86  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Every Little Helps: British Nursing Home Provides Strippers, Prostitutes on: 24-09-2014 06:16 PM
To provide complete care for its residents, Chaseley Trust — a venerable British nursing facility housed in an ornate seaside mansion — offers amenities such as a movie theater, a gymnasium and a pool table. It also, from time to time, invites prostitutes and strippers to provide their services to residents.

"People have needs," said manager Helena Barrow, as quoted in The Sun. "We are there to help. We respect our residents as individuals so that's why we help this to happen. If we refused, we would not be delivering a holistic level of care."

The revelation has ignited a nationwide debate over the rights of the disabled, and over the role of sex in assisted living facilities. The local East Sussex County Council has started an investigation into the home's use of strippers and prostitutes, according to The Inquisitr.

"This has the potential to place vulnerable East Sussex residents at risk of exploitation and abuse," a council spokesman told The Inquisitr.

Nonetheless, Barrow claims the practice has the support of Chaseley's staff, who said they might otherwise be sexually harassed by the residents — some of whom are as young as 18 years and have neurological conditions.

"If you have a resident who is groping staff, one way of resolving that problem is to get a sex worker in who is trained to deal with that situation," Barrow told The Sun. "Most of the time, these are people who feel frustrated by a primeval need they cannot fulfill."

Sex in assisted living facilities, especially those with older residents, has long been a taboo subject, though attitudes are becoming more enlightened. As more people are living longer, healthier lives, sexuality among seniors is now largely understood as an important part of a happy, complete life.

Privacy is a particular issue among sexually active nursing-home residents, and those at Chaseley were no exception. The staff managed those concerns by placing a bright red sock on the door handle of a resident's room as a kind of "Do Not Disturb" signal when that resident wanted some privacy, the Daily Mail reports.

One stripper who visited Chaseley — a performer who goes by the name Solitaire — has also performed before the U.K. Royal Society of Medicine at a conference on sex and disability, where she provided a lap dance to a deaf and blind man, according to the Daily Mail.

Barrow was put in touch with Solitaire through the services of the TLC Trust, an organization that campaigns for the sexual rights of disabled men and women, the Daily Mail reports.
87  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Pastor Matthew Olumide Accuses Wife Of Attempting To Destroy His Manhood on: 24-09-2014 06:13 PM
Matthew Olumide, a pastor on Monday asked a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve his marriage with his wife, Oluyemisi, for allegedly attempting to destroy his manhood.

The clergy man also told the court that his wife had overwhelmed his life with miseries.

"Oluyemisi exposed me to public ridicule when she tore my clothes, including my underwear, and compressed my testicles. I spent several weeks in the hospital and when I returned, she warned me not to receive visitors if I needed my life. She falsely accused me of having extra marital affair with my church secretary" Olumide said.

The plaintiff further told the court that his wife had ruined his ministry following her domineering attitude, adding that from more than 50 members, his congregation had dwindled to a handful.

"She does not even take care of domestic issues like preparing my food and that of the children anymore. I have to combine all that with evangelism when I should be resting. In fact, she has almost sniffed life out of me" Olumide said.  

Oluyemisi, however, told the court that her husband and his family were always beating her.

"He had a wife before he married me, and they are still seeing each other till date. He even invites her to our night vigils. Olumide asked me not to work and yet, he does not take care of me" Oluyemisi said.

Ezekiel Ogundipe, the court's president told the couple to invite their relatives to court on the next adjourned date, and adjourned the case to June 9 for further hearing.

According to sources the assault took place at the Ahmadu Bello International Airport in the state capital, Birnin-Kebbi, at a ceremony marking the airlift of pilgrims.

Militants Will Hijack Plane, Pray for Pope Francis – T.B. Joshua.Speaking with his congregation, Joshua urged people to pray for Pope Francis of the Catholic Church and prophesied the upcoming plane hijacking by “militants”, Nigerian Eye reports.

The prophet with admirers not only among ordinary people, but also among politicians and celebrities, in Nigeria and worldwide, said he saw “a very big religious leader”, the one he characterized as a “father” figure respected by millions in different parts of the world.

Joshua continued that he had seen an alarming “vision” about him.

“I have been praying for him… They should pray for him,” Joshua proceeded, although not specifying which area people should direct their prayer towards… The clergyman I am talking about is the Pope.”


The Nigerian prophet also claimed he had seen the “Breaking News” about the hijacker, the militant capturing the plane:

“They will attempt to enter a plane. You will hear ‘Breaking News’ of a hijacker inside the plane that carried the plane from its original direction to another direction. We should pray so that it will not just end like that and we learn that there’s a crash.”

The last statement probably referred to the tragedy, which occurred in the United Sates on September 11, 2001, when Al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked  planes and crashed them into the towers of World Trade Center in New York.

“This is another big attempt they want to do.”

It would be recalled that last week Joshua prophesied a plane crash “in the unstable region near Russia and Ukraine” and urged people to pray for the US President Barack Obama, because the cleric saw him “being rushed to the hospital”. As for Obama, he said that the country leader would recover. He also spoke about a militant attack against a top official in Southern Africa, and in relation to this called for prayer for Kenya.

100  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Groom Dumps Bride At Ikoyi Registry, Absconds With Her Money on: 3-09-2014 09:13 PM
Uzor Emmanuel, a 45-year old married man with three kids played a fast one on a 42-year old lady, Victoria Adeleye at the Ikoyi Marriage Registry Lagos state, Southwest Nigeria.

Emmanuel who had proposed to marry Adeleye at the registry dumped her at the court premises and disappeared with her N4 million. The wedding was subsequently called-off following Emmanuel’s disappearance.

Friends of the couple, who attended the wedding ceremony were left shell-shocked as marriage officials cancelled the wedding.

A source told our correspondent that the relationship between, Adeleye and Emmanuel blossomed after they met at a church in Isolo.

Unknown to Adelye, Emmanuel was married with three kids. He told her that he was still single and needed to marry since he was growing old.

Adeleye who was also eager to get a husband, showed interest and became an intimate friend with Emmanuel.

Shortly after courtship, Emmanuel proposed to marry her and she accepted. He reportedly moved into Adeleye’s flat at Bola Adeyinwa street Aswani, Isolo where they started living together as a couple without the knowledge of their pastor and members of the church.

To cover their tracks before the church, Emmanuel suggested to Adeleye they need to go to court to consummate the relationship legally.

Adeleye agreed and brought out some money with which they used to facilitate the marriage but on the day they were supposed to tie the knot, Emmanuel carried out the last of his plans.

The duo had arrived the registry with close friends but while they were waiting for court officials to commence the ceremony, Emmanuel excused himself and went outside the registry. From there he fled with her money and did not return to the hall.

The suspect was later arrested following a tip off. He then confessed that he had a wife with kids and he was only interested in Adeleye’s money.

He was charged before Isolo Magistrate’s court for obtaining under false pretence and stealing under the Criminal Code.

When he was arraigned, he pleaded not guilty. The presiding Magistrate, Mrs F.M. Kayode granted him bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum.

He is remanded in prison custody at Kirikiri, Lagos pending when he will fulfill his bail condition.

The matter was adjourned till 2 October 2014 for trial.

Police sources said his wife refused to show up to facilitate his bail, saying what he did to the woman was bad.
