The worst enemy to deal with is, and remains, the enemy within. They are often too close to you that you just can't suspect them of any wrong doing, until the bubble finally bust.

.Com gathered that this same scenario played out in a bank in Delta State over the weekend as the branch Operations Manager of a first generation bank was arrested by police for allegedly coordinating a deadly armed robbery operation at the bank and carted away millions of Naira...
The gang had, in a commando style, succeeded in looting huge sums in both local and foreign currencies on Friday, while some bank customers and passers-by were wounded in the process.

Delta State Police command’s spokesman, Mr. Lucky Uyabeme, said “the arrested Operations Manager of the bank is helping the police in its investigation."

According to investigation, the keys to the strong room found their way to his possession. Another top staff of the bank is also a suspect as he suddenly fell sick and didn't come to work on the day of the robbery.

The police has vowed to get to the bottom of the incident and prosecute all involved.a

Sixteen-year-old Donald Ray Dokins’ short stature and baby face belie the crime he committed: the fatal shooting of a 1-year-old boy in the arms of his proud and doting father.
As he prepared to sentence the teenager, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Pat Connolly could barely contain his contempt. “You have no intestinal fortitude to sit up and look at me,” Connolly said to Dokins, who was staring at the floor, avoiding the judge’s gaze. “You have hatred in your heart that I can’t understand.”

Prosecutors say that on June 4, 2012, Dokins, a then-15-year-old gang member, rode up on a bicycle to a family gathered outside a home in Watts. He drew a revolver and opened fire, killing 14-month-old Angel Mauro Cortez Vega and wounding his 21-year-old father, Mauro Cortez. Dokins, authorities say, mistakenly believed the father was a member of a rival gang because of the color of his T-shirt.
Prosecutors charged Dokins as an adult. Connolly sentenced him to 90 years to life in prison. Before the sentencing, friends and relatives of both the victims and Dokins addressed the court. Dokins’ brother Derrick Washington described his sibling as a straight-A student who wrote poetry. Washington broke down in tears, asserting his brother’s innocence. “He’s not a monster.
He’s just a little boy,” said Washington, wearing a rosary around his neck. Another family member told the judge that Dokins wouldn’t be around to raise his own daughter, who police said is close to

An alleged rápist appeared in court with a bandage on his eyes and in his ear after his victim shot him in the face during a rápe attack.
Duane Portman Sr, 44, from Springfield, Ohio, was arrested at about 3:00 am after he allegedly grabbed a woman off the street and ráped her at gunpoint.

The victim told police that Portman took her into the Labelz 4 Less clothing store where he held her at gunpoint while ráping her. While being ráped police say the victim was able to grab the gun from Portman and shoot him in the eye.

After shooting Portman, the victim who was not identified, ran out of the store and drove herself to a nearby hospital. “When Portman was arrested he couldn’t remember who shot him or where the shooting took place,” a police office said.

The owner of the Labelz 4 Less clothing store said that Portman is a part-time employee at the store and that he works as a cleaner.

Portman donned a thick bandage over his right eye and in his ear when he pleaded not guilty to rápe and kidnapping charges.

386  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Did Governor Aregbesola Give His Female Deputy A Hot Slap? on: 24-06-2013 08:44 AM

Gist going round is that the Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola is a man with hot temper and that he lost it recently and gave his deputy, a woman older than him, a dirty slap during an argument...

But Gov Aregbesola has denied slapping Mrs. Grace Tomori, his deputy, stressing that the rumor was aimed at causing disaffection between them. Can there be smoke without fire. What is the cause of this smoke?

Reacting to the allegation, the governor said: “I have never beaten anybody in my life. In fact, I don’t beat my children, let alone beating any other person. More so, the Deputy Governor is older than me, so how do I beat an elderly person.”

“I don’t have any quarrel with my Deputy, and I can’t have any with her because I intentionally chose her and no one choose her for me. I think I can work with her and that is why I chose her. So, no differences exist between us.”

However, when asked by newsmen if Gov Aregbesola ever slapped her, .com gathered that the deputy governor simply said there relationship is cordial and that she "remain loyal to my governor".

387  Forum / The Buzz Central / Actress Liz Da Silva Dedicates Her Baby; Begs Man To Accept The Baby on: 24-06-2013 08:32 AM

Report is that actress Liz Da Silva enjoyed herself with three different men within short intervals, leading to her pregnancy and subsequent delivery of a baby boy. She tried to hook the pregnancy on each of the men but they all refuted her claims, for one reason or the other.

A close source told  that she has finally narrowed down to just one man...
The man is a Lagos big boy and I hear she has sent people to help beg him to reconsider her and the baby. My source said Liz is now claiming that the Lagos big boy, who has dated many actresses, was the the only man that she slept with without condom, saying the two other men were using condom.

But I hear the man is still standing his ground that he was not the only one sleeping with her.

What is the way out for Liz now?
