FOOD FOR THOUGHTS





Just last week, the US Supreme Court legalized same sex marriage, hundred of years after ‘they’ pontificated the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah due to immoral act of homosexuality.

This same people convinced us that New Yam, Egungun, Igue festivals etc are ungodly. Yet, Halloween is established, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is accepted, and countless days of known and unknown saints are celebrated.

Again, they told us to tear down shrines of our chi or ori (guardian angel) while we are drawn to the shrines of ‘guardian saints’ in the churches.
They made us destroy all forms of traditional medicines on account of taste, colour and odour, while they have craftily introduced their alternatives - Ginseng, Forever Living, GNLD, Organogold, Trevo, Origin etc.

The most painful till date is the how they convinced us to set fire to our A-Grade cannabis (certified by Shabba Ranks, when he smoked Fela’s) whereas they have grown their pot market to $10.7 billion industry.

My take is that 80% - 90% of what guides religious doctrines are certain individuals’ preferences instituted by claim of divinity. Whereas, 90% of the rule/ laws that guard the society are determined by few individuals for some implicit reasons other than the explicit benefit to the larger society.


In conclusion, no nation or people will develop using the template of foreign nations. And no individual can be genuinely happy with the prescriptions of others.

Suspect Weeps After Realizing Judge Is Ex-classmate (Very Touching/Video)







A Miami-Dade judge and a burglary suspect had a one-of-a-kind reunion in bond court, as the man broke down in tears, while the judge offered him some supportive advice.

Circuit Court Judge Mindy Glazer never expected a middle school reunion would occur while on the job.

"Mr. Booth, I have a question for you," she asked 49-year-old Arthur Booth.

"Yes, ma'am?" he responded.

"Did you go to Nautilus for middle school?"

"Oh, my goodness," said Booth, as he covered his mouth in shock.

Booth, now a suspected burglar, was reunited with his middle school classmate decades later in the court of law. When realizing who his judge was, he broke down in tears.

"Sorry to see you there," said the judge. "Mr. Booth, I hope you're able to change your ways, good luck to you."


Booth's bond was set at $43,000

Buhari Sacks CSO






The Chief Security Officer to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abdulrahman

Mani, has been relieved of his appointment, a month after he was appointed.

His sack may not be unconnected with the battle between the Directorate of State Security, DSS, and the Nigerian Army over which agency should provide close body protection for the president, a role that has traditionally been carried out by the DSS.

'Yes we have joined ISIS' Say Missing British Family Of 12 Who Fled To Syria








A British family of 12 who were feared to have joined in Isis in Syria have released a statement confirming that they have indeed fled to the self-proclaimed caliphate.

The Mannan family, from Luton, including a 75-year-old patriarch and a baby of one, said in the statement that “we are in the Islamic State” and “we feel safer than we have ever felt before”.

They had not been seen 17 May, having flown to their homeland of Bangladesh on 10 April and then to Istanbul in Turkey on 11 May – prompting Bedfordshire Police to launch an appeal to trace them.

Now the Mannans have declared that they have made it to Syria. A statement posted on the Isis website amounts to a broadside against the “so called freedom and democracy” of the “totalitarian” West, which they said is trying to brainwash Muslims.

The statement, released on the family’s behalf, says: “Yes, all 12 of us and why should this number be shocking, when there are thousands and thousands of Muslims from all corners of the world that are crossing over land and sea everyday to come to the Islamic State?

"Don't be shocked when we say that none of us were forced against our will. In fact it is outrageous to think that an entire family could be kidnapped and made to migrate like this.“

It’s Been 1 Year And Ghana Police Is Still Searching For Castro And Janet










On July 6, 2014, hiplife artiste, Castro, born Theophilus Tagoe and his female companion, Janet Bandu disappeared during a jet-ski ride on the Volta river in Ada and many are those who believe the police charged with searching for them are not doing enough.

There are even some who believe the police has entirely stopped looking for the two but DSP James Benefo Darkwah, PRO of the Police CID, says the search is still on.

    “We have not given up. We still make constant checks to find out if there is anything new. We are still searching for them. The investigations to locate the whereabout of both Castro and Janet Bandu are still ongoing.

    We have extended the search and Interpol Ghana has informed their colleagues in the sub-region to search as well. That is to let us know if they come across any missing persons. They have been given the necessary information about them so we are still searching.”

He said they were still open to all possibilities and hoped they would still locate the two missing persons.


    “We are still hoping for a positive result from our search and since every case is treated on its own merit, we have not given up hope. Legally we can only pronounce them dead after seven years so at the moment we believe they are alive” he said.

This is because The Evidence Act of 1975, Section 33, says a person can only be declared legally dead after seven years by a court, where the person in question has not been seen or heard from in seven years despite diligent and persistent efforts to find him.

Caitlyn Jenner -- Bringing Folks Together Since 2015





Brody Jenner -- who would've thought that somebody from "The Hills" would become this insightful and un-obnoxious later on in life?

During a recent interview about Caitlyn Jenner, Brody -- who's not had a terribly long history of getting along with his parent -- had this to say:

"I've known Bruce for a long time and I didn't really get along with Bruce -- Caitlyn I get along with a little more, because Caitlyn is actually who she really is and she's living her life finally now as the person that she always was. ... What are my thoughts on the transition? It's incredible. I think that it's probably one of the most historical things that's happened in a long [time].' ... Be yourself. And if you're not accepted by your family, there will be people who will accept you.''

MARIAH CAREY SPILLS OUT OF HER SWIMSUIT IN SPAIN










Mariah Carey has a plan. A plan to get the attention of the billionaire Aussie dude that lured her to the Spanish islands for the purposes of illicit interludes. Perhaps get him to notice her rather ample bosom in the various low cut and tiny tops she's been spilling out of this past week on the beach, yachts, and docks. I mean, it can't hurt, can it?

Not that Mariah is hurting for cash, but she is single again with no man around the house, and two fortunes are always better than one. Why not spill forth from the swimsuit and remind the gentleman suitor what lay in store for him when the commitment is real and the pre-nups have been legally certified. 

Big hearty chest fluffy funbags of a multi-platinum recording artist. That's a something. Love is overrated. Big bouncy melons on a world class diva are underrated. It all evens out somewhere along the way. Enjoy.

Greek Bailout Fund Raising – A Samaritan Wants To Help







It’s the tiresome-but-important saga that has dominated news headlines for months: Greece and its debt crisis.
But while it might have strained the patience of key players like Jean-Claude Juncker and Alexis Tsipras, it was a 29-year-old from London who finally snapped.
Thom Feeney, fed-up with the ongoing deadlock between Greece and its international lenders, set up a crowdfunding campaign in a bid to help Athens.
In just two days it has raked in – at the time of writing – around 600,000 euros, from around 36,000 people.

Crowdfunding is a way of raising money online from ordinary people, instead of going to a bank.
Mr Feeney, who works in a shoe shop, said: “All this dithering over Greece is getting boring. European ministers flexing their muscles and posturing over whether they can help the Greek people of not. Why don’t we the people just sort it instead?

NDLEA After Davido For His “Fans Mi” Video






National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) is investigating Davido on his new video with Meek Mill for showcasing hard drugs in this video.


The “Fans Mi” song is intended to promote Davido’s appreciation towards his fans for their love and support over the years. The music video however, appears to be more about the singer’s money and enemies than about his fans. Davido’s video also shows drugs, lightly dressed women and guns. 

Breaking News: NBC FIRED DONALD TRUMP





Donald Trump has been fired from NBC because of his recent comments about Mexicans, but hey, business is business, so there's a catch.
NBC just said, "Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBC Universal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump."

The network says 'Miss USA' and 'Miss Universe' will no longer air on NBC.
As for "The Apprentice," the network notes Trump has already said he won't participate because of his presidential run.

BUT ... the network says, "Celebrity Apprentice" is a Mark Burnett production and "that relationship will continue." And guess who hosts that show? NBC did not say it would demand a different host.
As we said, business is business.

Arsenal Confirms Petr Cech's Deal








Gunners have agreed a fee of £11million for the veteran goalkeeper, who apparently told Jose Mourinho that he wanted to make the move across London.
After countless fairly shoddy Photoshop attempts at mocking up Cech in an Arsenal shirt, fans of north London side can finally get excited about seeing the 33-year-old at the Emirates next season.
Cech, who arrives on a long-term contract, told Arsenal’s official website: ‘I’m really excited about joining Arsenal Football Club and can’t wait to join up for pre-season.

Mother, Baby Survive 4 Days In The Jungle After Plane Crash





A mother kept herself and her infant son alive for four days in a dense jungle of Colombia after the plane that they were passengers in crashed and caught fire.
María Nelly Murillo Moreno, 19, suffered a broken ankle when the plane that she and her 5-month-old boy were flying in crashed Saturday in the western Colombian department of Chocó.

The mother also suffered burns, according to the Colombian air force, after the plane caught fire on impact. She was burned while taking the baby out as fast as she could to save his life.

Col. Rodrigo Zapata of the Colombian air force told CNN the plane crashed at 1 p.m. Saturday, 15 minutes after takeoff from Nuquí Airport in Chocó. It was bound for Quibdó, a city in the same department. It should have been a 30-minute flight.
The pilot, identified as Carlos Mario Ceballos, died in the crash. An air force search-and-rescue team found his body and the wreckage Sunday morning. The crash is under investigation.

"It's a case that caught our attention from the beginning," Zapata said. "First of all, it was amazing that even though the cockpit was destroyed, the cabin area sustained very little damage, which explains part of the reason why mother and son survived."
Murillo left traces to help rescuers find them, including the baby's birth certificate, her cell phone, a diaper bag and the pilot's wallet.

According to Zapata, loud speakers fitted to the bottom of search helicopters helped in the hunt for the pair. The mother heard the speakers and returned to an area near the crash, where rescuers ultimately found her and her son Wednesday.

Those are the words Tami Cochran heard when she answered the phone from an unknown caller on Saturday night.
