                                 Embedded image permalink

          Fifty nine passengers and four crew members escaped death by the whiskers on Saturday when an Overland plane from Abuja overshot the runway at the Ilorin airport.A statement by the General Manager, Public Affairs, of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, Mr. Fan Ndubuoke, on Saturday, said no life was lost in the incident, which he added, was already being investigated.The statement read, “An Overland flight 1186, an ATR 72 aircraft with Registration number 5N-BPG from Abuja airport to Ilorin, carrying fifty nine passengers and four crew members,veered off the runway at low speed after a normal landing at the Ilorin Airport.
        “The incident which occurred today Saturday, November 29, at 4.45pm, has no casualty recorded. However, the Accident and Prevention Bureau in conjunction with the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority has begun an investigation into the cause of the incident.“The authority wishes to use this medium to reassure Nigerians that safety of the traveling public is still paramount and cannot be compromised.”A source told one of our correspondents that three professors –a former Vice Chancellor, University of Ilorin, Prof. Ishaq Oleyee, Prof. Lanre Badmus and one unnamed professor — were on board the flight.
       One of the passengers, Mr. Ayuba Balami, commended the pilot for showing great experience by maneuvering the plane to safety.“Our Ilorin passengers have since collected their baggage and gone home while the Ibadan Airport bound passengers will continue on Overland Airways to Ibadan Airport.”

Pregnant Woman Loses Eye After St. Louis Cops shot her in the face


        A pregnant woman who says she wasn’t even protesting lost her left eye after police on Tuesday in St. Louis shot her in the face with a bean bag round, her family said Friday.
       Dornella Conner, 24, is recovering after being blinded Tuesday and possibly losing some sight in her right eye as well, dad Donnell Conner told NBC News.He said his daughter and her boyfriend had driven to a gas station in St. Louis early Tuesday to fill up. The area remained on edge hours after a grand jury decided Monday night not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown. Police were reportedly responding to gunshots fired in the area when they encountered Conner and her boyfriend, De’Angelas Lee, who was driving.
       Conner said that her boyfriend was trying to maneuver around police, while police say he was driving at them. St. Louis County police told NBC News on Friday that Lee was arrested and charged with second-degree assault on law enforcement.Dornella Conner wrote on Facebook that she and her boyfriend weren’t protesting that morning or trying to cause a disturbance.Her father said she had no intention of being aggressive with police either and didn’t deserve to get hit. The bean bag round broke through the windshield, shattering glass that also hit her in the face, he added. “If a vehicle is coming at you, wouldn’t you take aim at the person who is driving the vehicle, not at the passenger’s side?” Donnell Conner asked.
        He said surgeons had to pull about 20 pellets from her face. Now, he’s worried that she will no longer be able to work and support her two children — plus the third on the way. The family said they are focusing on her recovery for now, and not thinking about any possible legal recourse.“She’s just trying to stay strong,” Donnell Conner said, adding that she has “no ill feelings” toward the officer who shot her.But he said the officers could have “done so many other things” instead of fire directly at his daughter. “For my daughter to be shot in the face and lose her eye is uncalled for,” he added.This is terrible. We’re praying that Dornella is able to recover full sight in her right eye but the police need to pay for her injuries and lost compensation. What the hell is wrong with those Missouri police?Via.NBC reports

Imo Film Academy Collapses Barely A Week After Commissioning

       Following the last weekend’s collapse of the multi-million naira Imo Film Academy, along Egbu Road Owerri, the state commissioner for Information, Engr. Chidi Ibe has explained that the building collapsed by accident and not as a result substandard material.The building constructed and commissioned by Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State penultimate weekend (November 14, 2014) at the premises of the Imo State College of Advanced Professional Studies, ICAPS, collapsed barely one week after it was commissioned by the governor, thereby fueling speculations that the building was one of the governor’s many substandard projects in the state.
   But, speaking during his maiden press briefing, the commissioner said the building collapsed because a trailer carrying heavy equipment fell on the building, thereby pulling it down.According to him, “there was nothing like collapsed building. It was a trailer carrying a heavy generator and while trying to drop the equipment behind the Film Academy,  one of the trailer’s tyres pulled and the trailer fell on the building. 
     The impact of the trailer’s fall led to the collapse of the building”.Ibe expressed surprise that many journalists went about publishing the story that it collapsed as a result of its purported substandard nature without verifying from any member of the government.He used the opportunity to call on journalists to endeavour to be more objective and sincere especially now that the nation was seriously preparing for general elections.On Governor Okorocha’s 2015 ambition, the commissioner said the governor was not so desperate to return back as governor of Imo State but said his only ambition was to become the president of the country.According to him, despite the fact that the governor had set his eyes on the presidency, more than 90 percent of the people of the state want him to complete his second term and do more for the people of the state.

‘Femi how far? Hey Gbenga, where you buy this nice shirt?’
‘O’boy na my wife buy am for me oo. How your beautiful wife naa Alfred? Frank yarn us as we dey come say una wahala don start again.’
‘Gbenga I swear, I don taya for that girl.’ ‘Mehn, this sun na die. Abeg make we find somewhere to chill and take some bottles.’
‘Oya Alfred, gist us wetin happen between you and your wife this time around? But wait first Alfred, before you talk about you and your wife mata, are you not supposed to be at work at this time of the day?’
‘Why are you sounding like this Frank? Haven’t I told you that I don’t go to work whenever my wife is having menstrual pains?’
‘So wetin you come dey do for “The Palms”?’
‘Bros, she sent me to buy her sanitary pads and some chocolate.’
‘Shuoo your wife don turn you to houseboy finish ooo. So you no go work today because your wife wan eat chocolate and wear pad? Wonders shall never end. Na so she send you the other day go collect her purse wey she forget for another man house for Ikoyi.’
‘Gbenga abeg leave Alfred alone make him gist us wetin really happen between him and his wife this morning. That is why we stopped over.’
‘Ok, guys I was enjoying my sleep jeje this early morning, wey my wife come back from God knows where and woke me up to go and bathe her daughter. Before I say make I open my eyes, she don sprinkle water for my face.’
‘WHAT!!! So wetin you come do am?’ ‘Nothing na! Abi una want make I beat her? The water wey she pour for my face no even vex me like that. Na the insult wey follow the water make me vex. Na small thing remain I for slap her I swear.’

‘Femi, wetin make you dey laugh? Shebi you sef dey plan to marry celeb? No worry, we dey wait. Don’t forget you already told me the reason you want to marry your celebrity girlfriend is because you loved the way she acted in the movie called “Jennifa.” You told Frank just two days ago that you are not very sure if her divorce went through the legal process of annulment or if it was just a case of her ex husband telling her to get out of the house and never come back again. Better find out the true reason for her divorce and if it was legally done so you don’t go to jail for bigamy.’
‘It’s ok Alfred.’
‘No Frank, let me finish what I am saying. After all we are all going through the same mess married to female celebs who have several divorces under their belt.’ ‘From what we all have seen of our celebrity wives and colleagues, none of us can vouch for our wives. Most female celebs are serial-cheaters and polyandrous. Some of them have married so many times that if they had a certificate for each divorce, the walls of their living rooms would be covered with frames like the office of the vice chancellor of UNILAG. Gbenga, why are you so quiet? How’s your wife?’
‘Frank, she’s fine jare.’
‘Is she back from Enugu? I taya oo. I wonder how long they will take to shoot a movie. Hope she calls sha?’
‘She called yesterday asking me to help her wash the pants she soaked in the laundry room two weeks ago before she travelled?’
‘My God, Gbenga please tell us you didn’t wash them. Did you?’
‘Yes I did, but before I did, I told her it would be the last time I’d ever wash her pants.’
‘Abegii, make we hear word. Who you dey lie for? Mehn, we don suffer for our wives hands sha. Frank, we heard your ex wife spent 24,000 dollars on a yacht trip in Dubai a couple of days ago.’
‘Abeg make una let me hear word. She no fit afford such extravagance. Maybe she don catch another maga.’
‘Frank don’t tell us you are jealous. What makes you so sure that she can’t afford it? Didn’t you see my wife’s friend who just got divorced the other day in her brand new G-wagon and they say she has also bought a house for herself here in lekki?’
‘Gbenga you be mumu if you believe say na her money she take buy house and G-wagon. How much she dey collect per movie and how many movies she dey act?’
‘Abeg na dem sabi jare. Make I begin dey go. My wife go soon call to ask whether I don pick her daughter from school. I still get to cook for her and her friends this evening.’
‘Guys, me sef don waka oo, I no dey for my wife trouble. Femi, are you not going home? You wey go soon become the latest Lekki husband. But please make sure her previous marriage was legally annulled by a court of competent jurisdiction ok?’
‘You be our guy and we don’t want you to be like Gbenga whose marriage is illegal.’
‘Frank, better keep quiet there.’
‘Guys we go see later. Hey Alfredoski, take am easy with your wife oo.’

Prison break gone bad in Oya State prison as robbery suspect gets stuck while trying to escape his cell


          A 35 year old robbery suspect got stuck in a hole as he tried to escape his cell from his cell in Oyo. The inmate, Femi Akanji was caught after burgling a shop on the 12th of November 2014..He narrated to the Tribune why he decided to escape  from the cell to avoid the trouble he had put himself into, unknown to him that he was complicating matter. After my two cell mates had slept, he started using his hands to dig the wall silently in the dead of the night. I started from a point where i noticed a crack in the cell. When some bricks fell, i further used them in digging and after i had created a hole,
         I pushed my head into it and tried to escape before dawn. Unfortunately for me, i got stuck, so i shouted. My cry brought the policemen on duty towards the cell and woke my co-inmates up. That was how i was rescued and secured till i was brought to Ibadan.”Now, i know that crime does not pay. If God should save me from the current situation i am in now, i will never venture into crime again in my life. I have realized that whatever is acquired fraudulently or any ill-gotten wealth does not last. I have my time and life. If i had been contented with my little business and had not engaged in crime, i would not have lost my belongings which now serve as part of the exhibits recovered.”

 A son who killed his father has been found guilty of murder.
        Nathan Robinson, 27, was told he faces a life sentence after putting William Spiller’s body parts in storage boxes and using them as a stand for his TV.Robinson shared a flat with his 48-year-old father, Winchester crown court was told.Judge Mr Justice Griffith Williams said: “There is only one sentence I can pass on you and that is one of life imprisonment.
      "I won’t pass that sentence now as I want to consider the minimum sentence you will serve.” After the murder, Robinson steam-cleaned the flat in Bournemouth, Dorset, but a neighour below became suspicious when pink droplets began appearing on walls.The following day, the University of Aberystwyth mathematics graduate set off for a weekend away to visit friends in Glasgow with a box-set of Saw horror films in his black holdall, a court heard.Before leaving the flat he shared with his 48-year-old father, Robinson, of Kingswinford, West Midlands, set about cleaning up his crime.In the following month, he then covered his tracks by using his father’s mobile phone, sending text messages posing as the 6ft 4in, 25-stone Mr Spiller.
      Robinson denied murdering his father on May 16 last year but admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.During the trial, he claimed his father sexually abused him in a hotel as a 13-year-old boy.He alleged he forgot all about the abuse but the memories flooded back to him in early 2013, a court heard.However Nigel Lickley QC, prosecuting, said Robinson murdered his father Mr Spiller over ‘money disputes’ and owed him £36,000.Robinson was arrested weeks after the murder on June 18 last year - telling police ‘Is this a joke?’ - a day after Mr Spiller’s girlfriend Glenys Molyneux reported her taxi driver partner missing to police.Mr Spiller was identified by dental records as the body was so decomposed.A date for his sentencing is yet to be set.Via.mirror uk

Seven drug traffickers nabbed on one flight excrete 8.7kg cocaine


       Forty-nine-year-old Fred Obi was about to board an Ethiopian Air flight from Abuja to Tel Aviv, Israel with a strange cargo allegedly concealed in his stomach when the law caught up with him. He had ingested 1.594kg of cocaine.But he was not the only one boarding that same flight with the intention of transporting narcotics they had ingested on November 22, 2014 when they were arrested by men of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agencyat the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.Also arrested were Ekechi Ferdinand, 36; Okonkwo Paul, 20; Azubuogu Obumneme, 30; Okechi Anthony, 34; Anozie Henry, 34 and Okafor Francis, 51.According to Punch,NDLEA spokesperson, 
     Mr. Mitchell Ofoyeju, confirmed that the raid which was headed by the agency’s commander at the Abuja Airport, Mr. Hamisu Lawan, would turn out to be a revealing one.The suspects, who were said to have been arrested and isolated, were soon made to excrete the drug they had ingested.“The last of the suspects eventually finished excreting the drugs in his stomach this morning (Thursday, November 26),” Ferdinand excreted 1.616kg of cocaine, Paul – 1.103kg, Obumneme – 1.450kg, Anthony – 935 grammes while Henry exctreted 874 grammes of cocaine. The oldest of the suspects, Francis, on his part excreted 1.167kg.All the suspects, except Obi, were said to have Hong Kong as the destination on their tickets.NDLEA Chairman, Ahmadu Giade, said that the arrest of the suspects was an added victory to the war against drug trafficking in the country.He said, 
      Having seven suspected drug traffickers on a single flight is a reflection of the desperation of drug cartels.“But this will prove to them that the NDLEA has the capacity to stop drug trafficking no matter what method they employ.“Fortunately for the suspects as well, our arrest has saved their lives because for the suspects heading to Hong Kong, it is clearly stated in their visas that drug trafficking in Hong Kong attracts the death penalty. Nigeria has equally been saved from an embarrassment their arrest would have caused if they were caught over there.”
