Man on trial for failed suicide attempt

You see this yeye people? Should this man be in court or in an institution where he can get help? This is the same way Afeez was beaten up in Surulere for attempting suicide. Some people need to be enlightened sha. Below is how Daily Times is reporting it…

A 36-year-old man, Ekanem Aniefiok, was on Tuesday arraigned before the Karu Magistrates’ Court for alleged attempt to commit suicide.

The police Prosecutor, Umar Mohammed, told the court that Aniefiok, of the Federal Housing Authority Estate, Karu, Abuja, committed the offence on September 4 at 10am. He said the offence was contrary to section 75 of the penal code law.

According to him, the police was alerted by one Idika Uzoma, of the same address, that the accused had attempted suicide.

The prosecutor said Uzoma had discovered Aniefiok hanging in his room while his 20-month old daughter was holding a part of the rope that went through the ceiling.

Mohammed said that the accused was unconscious while the baby was crying, and that Uzoma raised alarm which attracted neighbours who rescued him.

The prosecution said that Aniefiok had confessed to committing the offence because he lost his job and that his wife had abandoned him.

Magistrate Celestine Odo said the court had no jurisdiction to try the accused and advised the prosecutor to refer the case to the appropriate court of competent jurisdiction.

Photo of the Day: Bride Gaga

Wow! Beauty they say is always in the eyes of the beholder. However, this is what you get when you use the same designer as Lady Gaga.

For her wedding day, Lady Mary Charteris, the 24-year-old aristocratic model chose a dress designed by Pam Hogg – who just so happens to have dressed Lady Gaga.

I also noticed from this breath taking picture that Bridegrooms will soon start holding the bouquet too***laffs***

Head-turning stuff.


Well friends, it’s left for you to decide if you wanna give the designer of this “out of the world” wedding dress a thumbs up or shout out loud “what in the world were you thinking! ” Whatever the case, it’s a free world out there and people like to express it in different ways.

Holla! Don’t forget to check out the Maid of Honor, she’s simply one of a kind****laugh out loud****

Top 10 lines in Michelle Obama’s Democratic Convention speech

“And I didn’t think it was possible, but today, I love my husband even more than I did four years ago — even more than I did 23 years ago, when we first met.”

First Lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday delivered a powerful, highly personal speech to an adoring crowd at the Democratic National Convention. Here’s POLITICO’s round-up of her 10 most memorable lines:

1. “Well, today, after so many struggles and triumphs and moments that have tested my husband in ways I never could have imagined, I have seen firsthand that being president doesn’t change who you are — no, it reveals who you are.”

2. “For Barack, success isn’t about how much money you make, it’s about the difference you make in people’s lives.”

3. “You see, at the end of the day, my most important title is still ‘mom-in-chief.’”

4. “We were so young, so in love, and so in debt.”

5. “Barack knows the American dream because he’s lived it, and he wants everyone in this country, everyone to have that same opportunity, no matter who we are, or where we’re from, or what we look like, or who we love.”

6. “And he believes that when you’ve worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. You reach back and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed.”

7. “If farmers and blacksmiths could win independence from an empire, if immigrants could leave behind everything they knew for a better life on our shores, if women could be dragged to jail for seeking the vote, if a generation could defeat a depression, and define greatness for all time, if a young preacher could lift us to the mountaintop with his righteous dream and if proud Americans can be who they are and boldly stand at the altar with who they love, then surely, surely we can give everyone in this country a fair chance at that great American Dream.”

8. “And I didn’t think it was possible, but today, I love my husband even more than I did four years ago — even more than I did 23 years ago, when we first met.”

9. “I love that for Barack, there is no such thing as ‘us’ and ‘them’ — he doesn’t care whether you’re a Democrat, a Republican, or none of the above. He knows that we all love our country, and he is always ready to listen to good ideas. He’s always looking for the very best in everyone he meets.”

10. “You see, even though back then Barack was a senator and a presidential candidate, to me, he was still the guy who’d picked me up for our dates in a car that was so rusted out, I could actually see the pavement going by through a hole in the passenger side door. He was the guy whose proudest possession was a coffee table he’d found in a dumpster, and whose only pair of decent shoes was half a size too small.”

So you see, beside every successful man, there’s a woman with a story who loves him so dearly.

‘I didn’t kill my wife’ – Rich Oganiru tells his own side of the story

In a telephone conversation with Charles Nwagbara of High Society Magazine, the actor accused of poisoning his wife and selling off her property said he’s 100% innocent and that the false stories were planted to defame his character. He told the magazine his own side of the story. See it below:

According to him, his late wife took ill over five months ago and was battling fibroid. He explained that they opted for some kind of treatment supervised by German doctors which will prevent normal surgery. But to his dismay, the fibroid kept growing back and causing his wife more pain. Later, they  decided to go spiritual and moved from Abuja to Prophet TB Joshua’s synagogue in Ikotun where the prophet gave them emergency appointment based on his personal recognition.His wife he said, then suggested they move to her brother’s apartment at the Air force Barracks in shasha. While there, she rejected all the provisions that the actor bought and insisted on having pap prepared by her sister at her brother, Group captain David Aluko’s home. After the meal, he said her condition became worse and they decide to move her to Synagogue since the appointment was a few hours from then. Oganiru said his wife refused and told him to take her to the hospital, this he did with the aid of her brother Group captain David. But at the military hospital gate, the woman died. That according to him was when the problem started as the brother became hostile despite his condition which resulted  in his being medicated as the shock of the death of his beloved wife raised his blood pressure. Later when he came to, he discovered that his Air-force  brother in-law had deposited his wife’s body at the morgue and ordered him, Oganiru to go tell their parents that his sister was dead. This the actor said he will do, but demanded the death certificate so as to present to his in-laws to clear himself since the Air-force officer had started insinuating all sorts.

Group Captain David he said ordered him out of the barracks and he left to his hotel room where he discovered his wife’s stuff had been removed and his belongings searched and scattered.
According to Oganiru:

“They even seized the keys to my jeep and my international passport. I had to beg for my things to be returned. When I got the keys and my passport back and David insisted that I cannot have the morgue tag for my wife, I left for our home in Abuja. On arriving there, they had locked me out and carted away eveything that belonged to my wife and even our wedding pictures. Eventually I was allowed inside.

Three days later some policemen from force headquarters came to arrest me based on a petition written about me that I killed my wife. I was kept in cell with Boko Haram members and I was the one washing for them. The police didn’t care about my medication. When they saw my health was getting bad, they released me. I was asked to report two days later to face my accusers. I took some journalist to the house to see how they vandalized my things. That same evening, a group of policemen came in commando style, broke down my window and said I was under arrest. That was how they took me to Asokoro police station after beating me mercilessly and I was bleeding from ear and nose, A few day later, a professor friend came and told them that they should release me or charge me. He insisted that they should do the autopsy and charge me based on that, When nothing was found after the autopsy was conducted, they let me go.

Meanwhile these heartless people have gone ahead to bury my wife without my consent. Now the next thing is that they are on the internet alleging that I poisoned my rich wife for her property. Let me tell you, my wife was a hardworking woman but about being rich, i don’t know, otherwise why did we scrape to the bone to find money for her treatment? We live in a rented apartment, so i don’t know the property I killed her for that I wanted to inherit. See, the callous people said I also killed my two former wives. My ex wife is alive, healthy and bubbling with my two children. But I know there is God and I must fight this to a logical conclusion. God is with me and my accusers will soon be put to shame. Thank you for calling me to find out the truth” .
