Photo Of Dr.AllWell Orji Who Committed Suicide Emerges



Dr. Allwell Orji jumped off 3rd mainland bridge on Sunday and apparently attempted suicide a number of times.
According to The Sun, his family said that Orji jumped down from the two-storey house four years ago. He was saved by agile neighbours.
“Four years ago he attempted to kill himself and, thereafter, had tried doing so on a number of times.”
A man who pleaded anonymity added,
“Since then, his family had been monitoring him. We don’t know the kind of sickness he was suffering from, but we knew he was being monitored. That was why he was assigned a driver to take him around.”

“He was such a gentle boy, who never made any trouble. His family has lived on this street for long; his father died four years ago.

“Perhaps the driver who drove him didn’t know about his condition because he was engaged about three months ago.”

Daniella Okeke Threatens Legal Actions After Being Accused Of Having An Affair With Apostle Suleman


Nollywood actress Daniella Okeke has finally opened up following allegations that she was a beneficiary of Apostle Suleman’s benevolence in exchange. There were allegations that she had received a car and a rent-free apartment from the Pastor who is currently entangled in a sex scandal.

Daniella who has been mute for the past couple of weeks spoke up on Instagram last night saying that her silence was for legal reasons. She, however, stated that she has not made any statement to any media house and as such all other reports credited to her are false.

See what she posted below!

CEO Of Foston Musik’s Wife Ajoke Opens Up On Domestic Violence

CEO Of Foston Musik’s Wife Ajoke Opens Up On Domestic Violence




Yesterday, Patoranking’s label boss, Foston Utomi (CEO of Foston Musik) posted a photo on Instagram with a caption that read:




When you’re holding on to someone who doesn’t want to stay. – There are certain people who aren’t meant to fit into your life no matter how much you want them to. And the only ones truly worthy of your love are the ones who stand with you through the hard times and laugh with you after the hard times pass. Maybe a happy ending doesn’t include anyone else right now. Maybe it’s just you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is simply letting go and taking a bold step forward. MARC AND ANGEL

 

Following the post, Ajoke, took to her own page to open up on the domestic violence she suffered while they were together. Someone had left a comment on the post saying “Domestic violence is not allowed” and Foston sent her a DM asking if it was her that posted the comment. He went further to say that the post was not about her.



His estranged wife posted the exchange on her page and captioned:
If you think you can post something on a public platform and then come to me in private to say your post is not about me then you must be joking for real. So since you started it I guess is okay for me to come here and ask you “who exactly is your post directed to then”? Awww are you feeling salty cos I left you? Feeling salty cos I rejected all your pathetic pleas for me to come back to you? Only a few people know what a monster you really are, and most of them can’t tell you the truth cos you are feeding them. You said it yourself that through out our relationship and marriage I never did anything wrong to you (I have all the screen shots), I never cheated on you, never talked back at you, never wronged you. Despite the fact you did unimaginable things to me,all I did was look for new ways to love you everyday. I walk around smiling, trying to be strong for my son but only I know how You have destroyed me, if my scars ever heal it would be a true miracle. Now to whoever this ghost account “hayoxy” is (I swear on my life and my entire family that I have no idea who it is, I’m not following Foston so I didn’t even see the post until he sent me the screenshot) thank you but you honestly don’t even need to fight for me. I haven’t cried in almost 4 months now, that’s enough proof that God has already fought for me. Now back to your post sir Uba, you will not have a happy ending oh! What happy ending? Let me just tell you right now- it’s impossible! You beat me nothing less than 20 times in 3 yrs and attempted to murder me (MURDER) 3 times and you think you will know peace? It doesn’t matter how much you have, unless your parents take you to a mountain for deliverance you will end up killing yourself mark my words. You bought me a Range Rover so you may buy your next girl (victim) a Bentley when you find her sure she will enjoy financial bliss but she will pay dearly for you are cursed. You know I’m your heart I was never with you for money, when we started I didn’t even know who you were, I hadn’t even heard Patoranking’s Alubarika, my intentions and love was pure until I finally saw that you didn’t deserve it. Respect yourself!
The mother of one then revealed how she was physically abused after they got married and how during a particular episode she was beaten to a point where she was nearly killed. She also shared proof of the abuse.



In a post she wrote:
In this day my darling husband saw his wife and mother of his child bleeding on the floor but was still hugging and puffing. Swearing on his mothers life that that was going to be my last day on earth. Swearing that he would “enter Instablog” as the next man who killed his wife. I can’t help but imagine 2 conductors on the street fighting, 2 strangers. When one starts to bleed the other would think “ha make I calm down oh” talkleas of beating your defenseless wife who did Nothing to you (or please ask him, what I did, I would love to be able to make sense of this, love to know my offense). He showed no mercy,still said to me that I was going to drown in my blood. He locked all doors, even balconies invade I wanted to jump out! The man I loved striped to his underwear in front of my friend and the abuse went on for hours, he had 2 of his own friends in the house and even they weren’t enough to stop him, he was exchanging blows with them, just to get to me. It was as though he had 5 men inside him,determined to kill me. I excaped only by the grace of God. My friend and I were running on the street with blood on me like this and people wondering what happened to us. And this was just one day. I can write a book on the living hell I lived. And it’s you, who has the guts to bring this to instagram? You are not even worthy of being a role model to your son yet You think you a motivational speaker now?
Foston is yet to respond to these allegations.

Foston and Ajoke had their introduction in December 2015.

Priyanka Chopra Covers The April 2017 Issue Of Marie Claire

Priyanka Chopra Covers The April 2017 Issue Of Marie Claire



Priyanka Chopra is on the cover of Marie Claire’s April 2017 issue. The gorgeous former Miss World 2000, talks about how she doesn’t believe in plans.

When she was a teenager, she planned on becoming an aeronautical engineer, but she ended up becoming Miss World instead.Not long afterward, she planned to go to college, but Bollywood producers came along and persuaded her to try acting, and pretty soon, Chopra had made more than 50 movies.

Not one to settle down, she went to Los Angeles with hopes of recording an album, and ended up on our large TV screens starring in ABC hit TV show Quantico.



Read excerpts from her interview;

On her love life
I’m not someone who looks for love. I don’t believe in making it happen. My life has been shaped by so many serendipitous moments so far, I feel like, Why screw with a good thing?




On her upcoming project, Baywatch

I loved Baywatch so much growing up. It was the quintessential American Dream. All those beautiful people in bathing suits, running slo-mo on the beach in Malibu—amazing!

On taking on new challenges and trusting her gut

I like to find my own way, which is something my parents always encouraged in me. They were like: ‘You got you.’ I think my inherent sense of confidence comes from that. Also, my mom used to always tell me, ‘You could make the biggest screwup on the planet, but you can come tell me and I’ll help you fix it.’ And my dad used to tell me, ‘You kill someone, break a car, you come and tell me. I’ll fix it for you.

On her start in Bollywood—without any previous acting experience

Coming from academics, like an idiot, I was like, Oh, it’s just pretty people. You’ve got to wear lovely outfits and say a few lines. How hard can this be?” Boy, was I surprised. I just kind of went on set and fell and dusted myself off, and learned, and then fell again and figured it out.

On philanthropy and giving back

Giving back was a big part of my upbringing. When you get so much, you’ve got to find a way to give back. You don’t need a fat wallet. Time is something each one of us has and all it really takes to make the world better—and intention.

On her ultimate dream—having kids

As many as I can. I love kids. Love, love kids. I prefer their company to the company of adults, actually.

The April 2017 issue will be available on newsstands from March 21st.

Police Arrests Man who Accidentally Cut Off Step-grandson’s Genital During Circumcision

Police Arrests Man who Accidentally Cut Off Step-grandson’s Genital During Circumcision



Bayelsa Police has arrested one Keke Ziworitin, 59, who mistakenly mistakenly cut off his step-grandson’s genital during circumcision.

The incident occurred in the coastal community of Ondewari in the Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa state.

Keke, who has been performing circumcision for years according to residents of the community, had told the victim’s mother to bring her son for circumcision.

According to Vanguard, the State’s Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Asinim Butswat, said that Keke is in custodian and investigations is ongoing.

“We arrested the suspect following a report of the circumcision incident; he is currently in our custody. He was arrested on Saturday and hopefully, subject to the outcome of the investigation, prosecution will follow,” Butswat said.
 
Meanwhile, the victim’s mother, Eudora Michael, 35, who spoke at the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa, where the child is on admission, is crying for help as they no longer have money to pay hospital bills.

She said he was at risk and needs the assistance of the Bayelsa State government and well-meaning Nigerians.
“Since this sad incident occurred, we have been running around to raise money; we have borrowed and are in big debt. My husband has gone to the village to gather money, but people are not forthcoming with help.
People who had given us loans are not willing to give us more, when we have not paid what we borrowed. We are even surviving at the mercy of doctors, who are spending their own money when they see that we are unable to provide the drugs they prescribe,” she said.

The massive turn out, the long ticket queues and sold-out viewings are few of the true testaments to the current cinema success of the movie. I am just grateful to God for His love and favour and to my crew members our efforts are really paying off now.”
The film stars Zynnell Zuh, Enyinna Nwigwe, IK Ogbonna, Nancy Isime, Bayray Mc Nwizu and Daniel Lloyd.  It also features veteran Keppy Ekpeyong Bassey and Shaffy Bello as a couple.

Hire a Man is a love story; it is a morally conscious movie that highlights on the attribute of not giving up on love and so many other lessons.
