The Imo State Director, National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, Ikenna Unegbu, has been arraigned before a Magistrates’ Court sitting in Owerri, for allegedly defiling a two-year-old girl in his office, according to TheNation.
The incident was said to have happened on February 5, 2020 in Unegbu’s office at the NIMC. The complainant, who is also the mother of the victim, Chinonye Obioma, told the court that her little child was defiled on February 5, 2020 by the Director.
According to the report, she explained that the Director had taken the child from her in the guise of consoling her after she (Obioma) scolded her (the child) for pouring water around the office.
“My daughter went into the office twice with biscuits and groundnuts, only to come out from the Director’s office the third time, crying,” she told the court, according to the newspaper.
Obioma further said that on her way home, she noticed abnormal movement and posture of her baby after she urinated.
“When I asked her what happened, she mentioned that Uncle Police (the suspect) removed her pant, and put his stick (penis) inside her bumbum.
I went home in tears, seeing reddish, swollen vagina, remains of sperms, tissue paper gummed on her private parts. I called Oga Ikenna (suspect) to enquire what he did with my daughter, and he harshly denied knowledge of the incident.”
The child’s mother explained further that the next day on February 6, she took her baby to the Federal Medical Center, Owerri and Police Hospital to carry tests on her daughter.
She said the doctors confirmed through medical reports that the little girl’s hymen was broken. She told the court that the medical reports showed that the baby sustained serious injury after her abuser had penetrated her.
The Magistrate, Her Worship Odionyenma, ruled that the suspect be granted bail for re-arraignment on March 19, 2020. According to the judge, evidence would be properly studied to ensure justice was served.
When these guys are not treating this thing with the seriousness it deserves, with them going into that make shift quarantine center with a patient without even properly protecting themselves. The good part of this is that the black skin officially seems to have a certain resistant power towards this disease, and we hope that for the sake of Mother Nature and Mother Africa that the black skin is infact able to protect itself against this novel disease. Even though in this case, they were simply following the rules, since no one is above the law in the ward. kudos
The Minister of Health, Osagie Emmanuel Ehanire has disclosed that the Director General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekweazu has been quarantined for two weeks.
Ehanire revealed this on Tuesday when he paid a scheduled visit to the Senate Presdent, Ahmad Lawan, in #Abuja to brief him on the government efforts to stem the coronavirus outbreak.
The minister said the NCDC DG had just returned from China on official visit, and was to be isolated for 14 days in compliance to government regulations on all persons returning to Nigeria from burdened countries, till his status is properly ascertained.
“We were honored that one of the scientists that WHO had chosen to go to China to study the disease was the DG of NCDC. They went there for nine days, during which they carry out investigations.
But we have already established rules here that anybody who has been to China will go to self quarantine. Chikwe has gone (to China) and come back and has done the test. .
It’s negative, but we have insisted that he must undergo the 14 days of quarantine which is why he was not here today. .
He is not allowed to come out until after 14 days, because if you make rules, you must also obey them, which is to set example for Nigerians that the head of NCDC is self quarantine as we speak. He’s very well but he has to follow the rules,” Ehanire said.
it’s about time some realistic acts start taking place in real life, and at the airport. it was simply am imaginary plan initially. But with this new era of Coronavirus in Nigeria through the Italian, it is now being implemented for real.
Reposted from @punchnewspapers Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has advised the President, Maj. Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to stop all flights from countries facing coronavirus outbreak.
Atiku, who was the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the last election said Nigeria should fight the disease the same way it was able to tackle the outbreak of Ebola in 2014.
He said in a Facebook post that since Buhari had been able to shut land borders to protect the economy, it would not be too difficult to stop flights from countries facing the coronavirus scourge.
The former Vice-President added, “Nigeria needs firm and decisive actions to prevent an escalation of the scourge. Recently, we closed our borders as an act against economic sabotage. Perhaps now is the time to temporarily halt flights to and from any nation with a prevalence of this scourge. It is more important to secure human lives than to secure an economy. We also need to invest in early detection facilities at our airports.
“But above all, Nigeria must not panic, whether at government or individual levels. We have defeated Ebola before, and we can defeat this present predicament.”
The PDP chieftain said this was not the time to cast aspersions on anyone or begin to trade blame.
He said the focus should be on finding solutions.
Atiku added, “We must call upon our experience with the Wild Ebola Virus, of which we were the first nation in the world to defeat that scourge in 2014. How did Nigeria do it? We achieved it by showing unprecedented unity.
“The Federal Government of the day worked closely with the Lagos and Rivers State governments. There was complete unity, solidarity, and oneness of purpose, which created the atmosphere that defeated that deadly infestation.
“I strongly counsel that any tendency to blame and point fighters must be temporary, if not permanently, suspended. If fingers must be pointed, it must be to solutions.”
He said the crisis is an opportunity to show that we are first and foremost Nigerians and that we have no other country but our dear fatherland, which we must work together to keep healthy and secure.
from @washingtonpost On Valentine’s Day, Josh Norwood hurried from work to buy his wife flowers. The father of two pulled into his long driveway in rural Virginia just in time for dinner. But as he walked up to the home, he sensed something was wrong, he said in an interview with The Post.
And when he opened the door, his 6-year-old, Wyatt, was not there to greet him. He was instead met by gunfire. A bullet that seemed to come from the basement door sliced across his forehead.
The lights were on in the room belonging to his older son, Levi, but there was no sign of him. In the living room, there was what looked like a large pile of blankets on the floor. When he pulled back the blanket, he found his wife, Jen, facedown in a pool of blood.
Underneath another blanket on the love seat was the small body of Wyatt. “No, this isn’t real,” Norwood recalled screaming. It was another day before he learned where his older son was. On Saturday, Levi was charged with two counts of murder, setting off a manhunt for the teen.
As he grieves for his wife and first-grader, Norwood also wrestles with anger toward his elder child, whom he now refers to only as “the one who took them away.” With no clear motive named in the family tragedy, Norwood has also had to defend himself against accusations of racism that some suspect played a role.
Four classmates told The Post that Levi described his father as racist. A Facebook page belonging to Norwood is adorned with a notorious white supremacist motto known as the “14 words”: “We must secure the existence of our race, and a future for white children.”
And a close relative said Norwood was upset that Levi was dating a black girl. Read more by logging on #Washingtonpost or locate Instagram handle to click link on bio.

This is definitely going to be a very interesting story. I hav alot of questions for this women and who ever put it together that she may have a hand in this horror.
Why she did that might never be told to the world, be I am for sure interested in the outcome of this findings. I believe in confession and reality. But most of all, I believe in the truth
While many countries are going about it the very obvious way, fighting the entrance of the disease, protecting their points of entrances, blocking their boundaries, and treating those who have contacted it, some are just relying on the efficiency of these serious countries to prevent the spread.
We all are expected to have heard of the deadly coronavirus that has become a big problem for humans of the world. With over 17 thousand cases and over 300 deaths, which is Said to have brought into existence from the consumption of bat by these Our food exploring brothers in China.
In the name of all that is good and Satisfying, who eats a bat soup? This so not even a time of war and famine, just an ordinary human decided to voluntarily eat a bat soup. And videos of these soups I have seen so far, are those of dead bats that weren’t even sliced into an attractive size before consumption, but were cooked as a whole. As in, the bats are looking straight into the eyes of their consumer with wings spread apart.
Now we have this problem coming from that creepy act, all because someone decided to get curious and find out how a creature and unfriendly as a bat tastes.
While I have seen videos from scared and serious Countries spraying passengers who just landed into the country with a certain chemical mix to prevent the spread of the deadly virus, all I hear from Nigeria my Country is just the constant irrelevant TV, Radio and Newspaper articles about how they are protecting the Country. How exactly are you doing this please? Everything and time is not for clout chasing. what exactly are you doing in clear details?
Ordinary picture or even video of them actually doing something in real life, we can’t and haven’t seen. Ask these guys talking up and down about the chemicals that are being mixed to spray dead the virus in other Countries and they won’t know.
Now all we are relying on🤦🏾♀️ , is the scary fact that this virus will ahev mercy and won’t simply find its way into the country. Someone told me yesterday that her neighbour who just landed Nigeria from China, is in his house lounging.
How can you airport health guys tell he doesn’t have the virus yet, when he has not elapsed the quarantine period?. Imaging the Governor of Lagos State pleading with people to stay for quarantine when they arrive Lagos. Do you see what we are dealing with here? Imagine how many others are home from China in Lagos still chilling without any confirmation that they are safe? what makes you think that anyone will want to voluntarily stay for the quarantine when they can be stigmatised and maltreated and made to think they are dying while in there?
something this serious requires a serious readiness and not begging people to stay when you are not upping your game of restricting them and compulsorily protecting the rest of the country people? Dear God, help us in this Country named Nigeria. And to think that those in China are asking to be brought back home at a time like this? You have to understand that we don’t have what it takes to protect ourselves. We please with a cherry out Nigerians out there to let yourself get quarantined along with others. you don’t want to effect the whole country do you? Please do what is asked of you out there.

The whole internet is buzzing over the breaking news on Venessa Hudgen and Austin Butler’s breakup that was reportedly made public today.
The 31 year old actress and singer is said to have now split from her 28 year American Actor. After a 9year relationship the two have called it quit. This is just a few of the blogs with the news that I could lay my hands on. They are all buzzing and dropping that news like it is a hot plate off rice, and we are here for it.
I don’t like it when people breakup especially the breakup from a long relationship like there’s. After 9 years, what could have gone completely wrong ? I’m sure it feels like marriage already. This will hurt like a divorce. I hope they find a way to mend this.
Reposted from @lewishamilton – It saddens me deeply to know that over 1 billion animals in Australia died a painful death, no way out, not their fault. My love of animals is no secret and I can’t help but grieve for the defenceless animals thought to have died so far, pushing certain species closer to extinction. I’m lucky enough to visit Australia often and I know first-hand how beautiful the country is. Keep fighting Australia. I’ve spent some time speaking to people in Australia who are working at the heart of this and I’m filled with admiration for everything they are doing.
I implore you to join me in thinking about the impact we are having on our planet. Let’s work together to make small changes, and encourage our family and friends to do the same, so we can help shift the direction we’re going in.

from @lewishamilton – Focus on what you love doing. Set your sights and dreams high. Don’t ever let somebody tell you you can’t or you’re not good enough. You need to believe (if you really aren’t good at it then you need to be realistic too) nobody can do it for you, only help along the way but you are going to have to do the heavy lifting! Let’s set our sights higher for 2020, never backing down! I believe in you and so should you! #letsgo #believeinyourself
Reposted from @lewishamilton (@get_regrann) – Surfing into the new year, one of my favourite things to do. There is much to do, so much to see. Much work is ahead of us but I try to set my sights high on things which most people would say are impossible, envision it and work to manifest them. What are YOU going to do to make the difference for you this year? #believeinyourself – #regrann
According to the gruesome news breaking early this weekend in Lagos State, the god of cleaner environment and climate change angels seems to have taken note of plastic producing company where a very unfortunate occured and leading to the loss of life of one of its worker.
The plastic producing factory known as Multiplak located in the state capital in Oregun Ikeja, was said to have been sealed off by Lagos State for violating safety procedure in the factory. According to the state authority, the preceding rules visibly broken were the poor housing keeping, absence of safety signage admist some other avoided safety practices that have lead to the unfortunate and untimely death of a worker known as Femi Olatunde who was said to have gotten his God given head stock while operating a heavy duty machine while led to his death.
According to Director General, Lagos State Safety Commission (LSSC), Mojola, the State had declared zero tolerance on factories and private organisations that violate safety rules and regulations. .
According to him, on no account should any factory operate without putting in place safety equipment, quality house keeping, signage, good wiring system and clean environment devoid of hazards to the lives of workers and visitors.
Every rule or regulation known to have been created by man, was done because of the loss of life and property of man. It is said that a life had to be sacrificed in order for a factory to do what is right and act right according to safety. It is indeed sad to think that this man lost his life to help others get what they deserve at a work place. May his soul rest in peace with the Lord.
