Aspiring Victoria Secret Model Suffers Domestic Violence From Her Boyfriend Of 8 Months


Her name is Gabriella, she's an aspiring Victoria Secret model. Gabriella, via her instagram account @bambiiiii_ shared her recent sad experience of domestic violence from her boyfriend of eight months. She was badly beaten, thrown from a moving vehicle and dragged. She shared this photo of her injuries on her instagram page and wrote:

    "This might be a little graphic but I just want to let everyone know that I am okay. I am a survivor of domestic violence with a boy I dated for 8 months. I really thought everything was fine but he constantly questioned me about cheating and flirting. Nonsense. I never looked at someone the way he looked at me. Thought I loved this boy. How can someone that 'loves' me do this to me? The scars on my chest are way worse and extend down to my right nipple, completely scarred. The skin on my shoulder has been completely skinned. And I have bruising on my rib cage, neck, and my muscles. I was kicked out of a moving vehicle, then beaten and dragged, as I blacked out and was left lying there in my own puddle of blood. Doctors said I could have died if not made it when I did. I am so blessed and beyond lucky to be alive and have so much support from friends, family, and strangers. As I try to recover I ask to please keep me in your prayers. I have to wear a neck brace for 3-4 weeks, an arm cast and I can barely walk for now. Thank you for all the love. I hope to be an inspiration to women and anyone involved in domestic violence.

Commercial Cyclist Theophilus Pius To Die By Hanging Over Missing NYSC Member Anthonia Okeke


ADO EKITI — For playing a lead role in the case of a  missing National Youth Service Corps member, Miss Anthonia Okeke, who was serving  at Ilawe Ekiti, a 26‑year-old commercial motorcyclist, Theophilus Pius, is to die by hanging.

This was the verdict of an  Ikere Ekiti  High Court presided over by Justice Adegoriola Adeleye.

In the case that lasted six years, the judge equally sentenced Pius to 10 years imprisonment for kidnapping Anthonia, which ultimately led to her death in the hands of ritualists.

Anthonia, a Chemical Engineering graduate of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, who lost her father, Pa Raphael Okeke, to stroke last month, owing to the circumstances of her disappearance, was kidnapped  in Ilawe Ekiti in Ekiti South-West Local Government Area of Ekiti State on December 19, 2008 by Pius and his gang during his service year.

The late corps member  is from Umuno Ndiuno  in Ezeagu Local Government of Enugu State.

Delivering his judgment, yesterday, Justice Adeleye said he found the evidence adduced by the Director of Public Prosecution from the state Ministry of Justice, Mr Adeleye Familoni, against Pius as having probative value and reliable enough to convince him that the accused person was guilty of the case.

He said: “I want to submit that the prosecution counsel has been able to prove his case beyond reasonable doubt. He has been able to establish that the defendant is culpable and no criminal shall go unpunished in the face of law.”

Justice Adeleye, therefore, ruled that Pius should die by hanging, having found him guilty of murder, even as Pius is to serve 10 years jail term for his complicity in the kidnap of the late corps member.

Commenting on the judgment, Anthonia’s elder brother, Mr Obinna Okeke, said the judgment had proved that those with criminal intentions cannot have their way as long as the government is determined to apply the relevant laws against them in a diligent manner.

He thanked the state Ministry of Justice, the police, human rights groups and the NYSC for their doggedness in the pursuit of the case.

Also, the state DPP, Mr Familoni, in his comment hailed the judgment,saying  it was a victory against evil doers and those who are desirous of making money through fraudulent means

He added that the ministry will continue to help the society in tightening noose against those with criminal tendencies in the state.

Nollywood Actor Emeka Ike Who Has Been Thrown Out Of His Rented Apartment In Magodo GRA

   
 Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike who has been thrown out of his rented apartment in Magodo GRA, Ikeja, Lagos, over his inability to pay an accumulated three year rent of N8.5 million.
    The apartment, a twin duplex located at 1, Raji Oladimeji Street, Magodo GRA, was until his ejection, used by Emeka to run his business.
     Emeka had in 2007 diversified by establishing a secondary school named St Nicholas College and decided to hire the premises on a five-year lease agreement from an 87-year-old retiree, Chief Samuel Agboola Akintan at the rate of N2 million per annum for the first two years and N3 million annually for the remaining three years, bringing the total rent of five years to N13 million.



Saturday Sun gathered that Emeka was able to get his landlord accept a deposit of N2 million with a promise to pay the rest later. Trouble, however, started when a year after moving in, the popular actor began to default and at a point issued a dud cheque of N1.5 million.

To force Emeka to pay his money and eject him from the property, Chief Akintan through his company, Samak Investments Ltd, had to drag the actor to the Ikeja Magistrate court.Without much delay, the court had on November 22, last year ordered the actor to vacate the premises but his refusal to heed the order led the court Sheriff to carry out  execution of the judgment on January 24 this year when his property was thrown out.

Speaking to Saturday Sun, the octogenarian chairman of Samak Investment Ltd, Chief Akintan wondered why the actor chose to be a pain in his neck

    . He said that he has sympathy for the Nollywood star, but “unfortunately, Emeka doesn’t have sympathy for himself.”According to him, his company leased the property to the actor on June 1, 2007. Before then, he said he had never heard of Emeka’s name as his children were the ones that told him that he’s a nollywood actor.

     “I never knew this gentleman from Adam. He just came to my house with his wife and I was worried about who he was and my children came to me, saying, Emeka Ike, we know him daddy; he is a nice gentleman. That is how I fell into his hands.”

    “When I wanted to take the matter to court, Emeka wrote a letter on February 15, 2012, pleading that I’m his father and that I should halt any court process against him. Even this N2.5 million was paid in 2011, a year to the expiration of the five- year lease. After that, he issued a N1.5 million Zenith bank, Eric Moore branch cheque in my name, dated May 20, 2012, which bounced.“Some people advised me to take him to Special Fraud Unit (SFU) of the Nigeria police; I refused because this boy is a young boy like my son, why would I do that to him; that he should leave my property.”

    “After the cheque bounced, my lawyer called him over the phone, he started abusing me, threatening to deal with the lawyer and me. I never looked at what he was owing me in the past but should pay this N1.5 million. If I were to calculate his arrears, he has to pay far more but I am just satisfied  with this N1.5 million.”

He said the recommendation from his children made him enter into the lease agreement of five years which was to expire in 2012. According to him,

    “he was supposed to pay for the first two years N2 million each per annum and the subsequent three years N3 million per annum. The total rent for that period of five years should be N13 million. He paid N2 million for the first year and never paid again until three years later when he payed N13 million, he paid only N4.5 million and the balance should be N 8.5 million.”

    “I can’t walk, so the two times I went there, I was carried like a baby to the court and Emeka didn’t come, but my lawyer went there three times. The magistrate at Igbosere wrote back to the one at Ikeja to go ahead with the matter since Emeka didn’t come.
    “We went back to the first court and after several adjournments, neither Emeka nor his lawyer put up appearance and we were asked to give our evidence and we did, thereafter, the judgment was delivered.
    “To give Emeka another opportunity, we got judgment in November 22, but the magistrate in her wisdom said we should give him one month to enable him to get himself together and move out. We were supposed to take possession by December 20, 2013 but we didn’t until January 24, when the Commissioner of Police gave us three policemen led by an Assistant Superintendent of Police to follow the Court Sheriff to eject him. They ejected him and put his property outside.”

 When Emeka heard of this unsavoury development, he was said to have gone to Magodo police station and reported that thugs invaded his property after which the police arrested the two guards the landlord had stationed there.

    “When in January I went to the premises, even the teachers complained that they had never seen him for many months and had not paid them salaries for nine months.
    “While I was in Ondo, I got a phone call that Ekeka came to Lagos and went to Magodo police station and reported that thugs invaded his property. Police went there and arrested the guards and he put his own guards and locked the place.”


Sounding emotional, Chief Akintan said:

    “I’m a sick man; diabetic for 37 years. I will be 87 by my next birthday and can’t walk. I live at the grace of doctors and what nature can allow me to have. I’m immobile. I had to come back to Lagos to start another process to dislodge him. When I spoke to the DPO, Magodo police station and tendered documents, he said, so, ‘Emeka came here to tell him lies.’
    “We have filed a contempt of court against him. We have taken possession of the property and about renovating it.
    He is going about telling people that the place was not completed when he moved in that he put over N200 million to build it. He has done a lot of damage to the property.  I sent my contractor to assess the damage; he told me that I needed between N10 million and N13 million for renovation.
    “I have sympathy for Emeka, but unfortunately, he has no sympathy for himself. Emeka went to court to plead that the judgment should be set aside, that I received a kangaroo judgment; that the case should be retried. The court dismissed it, saying it was abuse of court process.
    I don’t know what Emeka would do again. I have never seen a character like that before.
    “His former landlord, Dr Shofoluwe was in the same position with me. He is looking for Emeka to pay N3.5 million rent arrears. He was ejected legally. This is the type of man coming to trouble me now and I don’t need cheap publicity.”

When Emeka Ike was contacted, he said

     “there is a position now, because I don’t want people who have not achieved anything in their lives to use unnecessary distractions to gain prominence. It is my money and investments and it is not a national crisis.
    Maybe people who think I have a larger life image are trying to use it to make a point and I want to handle it as legal as possible.”

He noted that there can be challenges in business, stressing that he is still in possession of the school.He added that only two entities can close down a school, either the government or the owner of the school stressing that none of that has happened.

    “I’m still in possession of the school. It is only the government that has the right to shut down the school if it feels that I’m not capable and I, as the CEO, if I feel that I can’t do it again. Nobody can shut down the school and the case is in court. It should not be seen as a national crisis, I have my business in Abuja and I’m doing very well and right now I don’t like distraction,”

Fake Doctor Arrested For Injecting Butt Implants With Cement


Dr. Oneal Morris has a very literal solution for patients looking to add a little junk to their trunks. She injected a woman looking to add a little more oomph to her caboose, with a solution made of cement, superglue, mineral oil, and Fix-A-Flat tire mender. Thirty-year-old Morris was arrested by Miami Gardens' police.

A patient asked Morris, a transgendered woman who is still legally identified as a man, to give her butt implants. So Morris cut her open and injected the crazy mixture. She then closed the patient's wound with superglue. As a result of the procedure, the woman ended up in the hospital, treated for a serious condition by actual doctors. Morris was arrested on charges of practicing medicine without a license and from her arrest pictures, appears to sport some sort of junk in her own rear end as well

Mavin First Lady Tiwa Savage Arrested For Assaulting A Police Officer And Violeting Lagos State Traffic Laws


Mavin Records artiste, Tiwa Savage, has been quizzed by the police for allegedly humiliating a policeman who apprehended her for violating some provisions of the Lagos state traffic laws. Savage often referred to as Mavin First Lady, was said to have engaged a policeman who flagged her down for flouting traffic rules in front of Eko Hotels and Suites Victoria Island, on Saturday.


Savage who was recently signed a brand ambassador deal with Forte, allegedly came down from the vehicle she was riding in and confronted the policeman on duty who arrested her.
During the ensuing argument with the cop, Savage who was infuriated by the development was said to have angrily removed the cap of the policeman in a bid to get back at him. The first African female PEPSI ambassador was reportedly whisked away to the Victoria Island Police Division, for daring to humiliate and assault the policeman.

When contacted, Group publicist for Mavin Records, Terfa Tilley-Gyado, confirmed the incident to our correspondent on the telephone. He said the records label will be issuing a comprehensive statement stating the position of Tiwa Savage and the group on Monday.
“What would you like to know? We are planning to prepare an official statement; definitely not at this time. The press release will be out on Monday for your Tuesday production.

“I don’t think it will be prudent to use the story until you have the official statement. That is just my own opinion. I think you should wait until you get the official statement,” he said.
Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Police Command, Ngozi Braide, could not be reached for comments. Her telephone rang out when contacted while a text message sent to her was not replied to as at press time.

Angela Okorie Talks About Her Career, Music And Her Role As A Wife And Mother In Interview


Angela Okorie started out as a  model before she moved into acting. Her acting career started after 10 years of modeling for Orange Drugs, owners of Delta soap. Today, she is not only one of the most-sought-after actresses in Nollywood, but also, she’s a wife and a mother. In this interview,  she talks about her career, music and her roles as a wife and mother.

okorie4444What have you been working on recently?

I’ve been working on a movie. It’s a movie that people should watch because it teaches some moral lessons and also makes us to know that God still exists.

As one of the emerging actresses in Nollywood, are you thinking of becoming a producer some day?

I am planning to go into movie production. I want to put in my best, so that when people see my movie,  they’ll appreciate it. I love entertaining people  a lot.

There was a rumour that you wanted to go into music. Have you done any song recently?

I have not done any song, but I’ve written a lot of them and I will soon hit the studio. I’m still putting finishing touches to my songs before going to the studio. I’m not going to release just single,  I’m planning to come out big with my album.

This is what I’ve been doing since my childhood; it wasn’t a child’s play for me. I grew up with it. While growing up, I was  in the choir,and a soloist in my church. I came back to Nigeria to do modeling and from modeling to acting. So singing has been part of me.

Most times, I sing without instrument and if you listen to me, you’ll be convinced that I am a singer.

Most musicians started  as gospel artistes. Are you going to continue with gospel music?
A lot of gospel artistes are actually making it in as much as they are not expensive. Once you are contented with what you have, you are okay. It’s not really all about money. Nowadays, most of these gospel artistes are really making it though not as much as the secular ones.

I won’t say I’m righteous, some gospel artistes these days want to be identified as ‘Evangelists’. I am not an evangelist yet. My songs are just showing appreciation to God.

I have one CD that I’ve developed, but I have not  released it because I’ll have to reproduce it again in the studio. It is reggae, but it’s talking about the world and people suffering. So, it’s not going to be all gospel; it also has to do with things happening around us.

What else should we be expecting from your stable?

In life, it’s important for people to understand who they are, their calling and gifts which is from God. It is something they know they can do. When your gifts are not working out for you, you look for an opportunity, those other things that would put food on your table. I have a calling for entertainment. Besides that, I hate it when people are humiliated, I like to see people smile,and I like to help.

Are you planning to establish an NGO  for the needy and oppressed, or even become a UN Ambassador ?

Yes, an ambassador. But I’m not ready to do it now, but it’s all part of my plans and when I bring it out, people will now shout.

Do you think you have compassion for those in need?

Even before I became famous, helping people has been part of me. I visit orphanages  often. As a matter of fact, most of the time, I celebrate my birthdays with them.

With all these your engagements, how do you manage your family?
I just have to cope. My husband understands my job. Even before we got married, he’s been very supportive. It hasn’t been easy, but I just have to cope.

Before going into marriage, most men promise prospective wives heaven and earth. Were you sure your man will fulfill his promises…?

Some men are better actors than most of us. A lot of them tell lies. Both of you have to sit down and discuss the issue.

There are some men who will tell you to quit your career because they want to marry you. I’m not going to say I didn’t have issues in my relationships before getting married to my husband.

I don’t think marriage is supposed to be frustrating. You should marry your friend, your partner and not just anybody that comes your way. You should marry someone who knows you and knows  what you want and will encourage you in whatever you want to do.

But at the same time, because  you are married, you need to cut down on some things. As for me, I put my marriage first before any other thing. No matter  how crazy I am, I still try to caution myself. I know I’m a very crazy person and people like me for who I am. There are certain things my husband would hear about me and he’ll get upset.

It’s only natural because he’s a human being. He’s still the man of the house. A man might come to you as an angel, but when he gets married to you, he becomes a devil. If you can’t stay in a marriage, you walk out of it. It’s  not a do or die affair.

Though the Bible is against it, but then you are dying gradually in marriage. You should save your life first, you are not just living your life for your husband alone. Other people are watching you.

Most rumours about celebrities are cheap lies. But then if we are not important, they won’t talk about us. And those people talking about us are jobless. As a celebrity, people must talk about you.

I’m not really crazy about controversy, but there is a picture I’m trying to paint for my fans. Though men are polygamous in nature, but I trust my husband so much.

Even if he’s doing anything out there, inasmuch as I’m not aware of it, that’s enough respect. He hasn’t given me any reason to suspect he’s cheating …. I’ve never caught him with any woman before.

Do you think women should empower themselves before  marriage?

Of course! Any woman who goes into marriage without engaging in meaningful thing must be stupid. No matter how small, let the man see that you are hardworking.

It doesn’t make sense for any woman to sit in the house and just be bearing children all the time. You have to look for something to do to help the man. If a woman is working, there are certain things she doesn’t need to ask the man to provide for. It’s not enough to get married to a rich man.

I wouldn’t advise any woman to go into marriage without anything. So, if you do not have anything doing; please persuade the man to help you start something.

You are loosing wight, how did  you do it?
I just eat less, go to the gym, I walk out a bit just to keep fit.

What’s your advice to women who want to get back in shape after childbearing?

They shouldn’t just sit at home all day and eat. Everyone wants to look trendy and beautiful. That you got pregnant and gave birth to a child doesn’t mean you should grow fat and go out of shape.

No, you should be able to get back your shape and maintain your husband’s attraction, so that he’ll still see the same thing he saw that attracted him to you.

What’s the highest fee you’ve received for acting in a movie?

It was actually when I shot a movie where my head was shaved. I played the character of Anita, the girl who fought for the widows in the community. I was paid well.

What is the most challenging role you’ve played in a movie?

There are two movies where I played very challenging roles. In one of them, I was a dumb and blind girl and in the other one I was a vampire.

It was very challenging because it’s not the usual everyday story in Nollywood. Imagine a human  eating raw goat and chicken. I had to read and learn a lot more about vampires in order for me to interpret the role excellently.

What’s your advice to the up and coming actresses ?

If you’re asked to feature in one scene in a movie, that scene is enough to make you. I’m not crazy about lead roles. It’s not really about playing lead roles, it’s about interpreting the character excellently.

You just have to put in your best. I was a bit reluctant to act when I started, but now, I earn more than most people who were there before me.

Above all, if you have the grace of God, it doesn’t matter if you do it well or not, people will just like you. When I started, I wasn’t really good at the job, but I’ve improved a lot. I don’t joke with my job. I’ll advice the aspiring actresses to work on themselves.

A lot of people in the industry are crazy about publicity, even without doing anything or deserving it. I’m not crazy about awards, publicity or controversies; I’m crazy about my job and how to do it well. It’s not about being on papers everyday.

I try to put in my best in everything I do to please my fans, because they made me. Nobody will be in the limelight forever, it is the legacy you leave behind that matters.

Do you also watch foreign movies  to help boost your interpretation of a character?

I read about them. I watch my own movies a lot in order to know where I need to improve on.
