Court Frees Kano Child Bride Accused Of Killing Her Husband & 3 Others

Fourteen year-old child bride, Wasilat Tasiu who was accused of killing her husband and three of his friends have been discharged by a  Kano High Court in Gezawa, today.

The Justice ruled that based on the formal application before the court from the office of the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, “the case is hereby terminated and the accused is discharged”. 

Sometime last year the case seems lost, with a lot of Nigerians and her family almost losing hope in it. This is the best news i have reported today. So excited about this.

Incase you don't know what we are talking about, Wasilat was forcefully married away against her wish of still going to school. She later poisoned her husband and his friends who had come to have lunch in their house, with the intention that she would be free after they die, not knowing it will  cause more trouble for her. Anyway the good news is that Tasiu is now free.

Kylie Jenner reveals her mum Kris "cut her off financially" at 14

You'd have thought that having famous folks would come with a few major benefits - such as a never ending allowance to spend as your heart desires. 
Turns out that wasn't the case for Kylie Jenner, who has been supporting herself financially since she was just 14-years-old after being cut off by her 'momager', Kris Jenner. 
Speaking to InStyle magazine Kylie revealed: "My mum cut me off financially three years ago so I pay for everything - my car, my gas and food as well as my clothes." 
Having taken care of herself from such a young age, the youngest member of the Kardashian clan also admitted that she regrets a few of the questionable outfit choices she made in the past.
"There are so many outfits I bought in the past that I just think now are not cute - but there's not very much I can do about it." Said the 17-year-old (don't worry Kylie, we've all been there). 
The reality TV star recently announced in an epsiode of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' that she is already planning on moving out of the family home and buying her own place when she turns 18 in August.

This latest development comes shortly after Kylie revealed in an recent interview with us: "Khloe is more of a mum to me than my mum is sometimes. My mum is all about being friends." 
Given that Kylie is thought to be worth an estimated $5million and has recently joined forces with her older sister Kendall to launch a Topshop fashion line, we reckon she'll be just fine living on her own and could probably retire now if she wanted to. Not that we're jealous.

Meet The 102 yr Old Grandma Who Just Bagged a Doctorate Degree Today (Photos)

A 102-year-old German woman will become the world's oldest person to be awarded a doctorate on Tuesday, almost 80 years after the Nazis prevented her from sitting her final exam.

Ingeborg Rapoport was 25 when she wrote her doctoral thesis, but she had to wait until now to defend it before an academic committee—77 years later.

Ms. Rapoport, a 102-year-old retired neonatologist who lives in Berlin, submitted her thesis to the University of Hamburg in 1938, five years after Adolf Hitler took power. Her topic was diphtheria, an infectious disease that was then a leading cause of death among children in the U.S. and Europe.
But because of Nazi oppression she has had to wait almost eight decades before being awarded her PhD.

Motorcyclist allegedly rapes 11-year-old girl for 6 months

A 38-year-old motorcyclist, Obinna Ekusaba, allegedly raped a Primary 6 pupil for six months, from December 2014 till May 2015, in the Kirikiri area of Lagos State.
Apparently the victim’s mother sold cigarette and alcoholic drinks in a motor park on the street and Ekusaba, who usually parked his motorcycle at the park, was said to be one of her numerous customers.
According to reports by Punch, she was away on the day when the suspect called the 11-year-old to bring a bottle of drink into an uncompleted building in the motor park.
When she took the item there, the suspect lured her with money and raped her and this he did continuously until her mother observed on May 19 that her private parts had enlarged.
The girl later confessed after much persuasion that Ekusaba had slept with her.
The victim, in her statement to the police, said the suspect lured her with N1,000 the first time.
She said, “Brother Obinna (Ekusaba) used to buy cigarette, water and alcoholic drinks from my mother’s shop. Last year, I was in my mother’s shop when Brother Obinna called me to bring a bottle for him inside the building. On getting there, he put his hand inside his pocket and brought out N500; he asked me to enter. But I told him my daddy used to give me N500. He then brought out N1,000. As I entered the building, he removed my pants and put his private parts inside my own. After he removed it, I demanded the money and he brought it out. As I was about to collect it, he put it back inside his pocket. That was how Brother Obinna started sleeping with me.”
Her 35-year-old mother explained that she was bathing her when she observed that there was a change in her private parts. She said she observed that her hand could enter her private parts freely.
She said, “I became worried because it was not like that before. I questioned her for hours before she confessed that it was a man called Obinna (Ekusaba) that had been raping her.
“She also said he would bring out his private parts and ask her to put it in her mouth. I could not bear it and had to report it to the police.”
The victim was said to have been taken to a general hospital where different tests on her confirmed that there was penetration.
The police subsequently arrested the suspect, and upon interrogation, he reportedly confessed to the crime.
Ekusaba, who was married with four kids, said he slept with the victim both in the day and night.
He said, “I came to Lagos 10 years ago and I started riding motorcycle. I know the complainant as the mother of the victim. She is like a sister to me. I have been making love with her daughter for long. When we started, I told her I would buy something for her, but I didn’t buy her anything. I slept with her five times. Each time I wanted to sleep with her, I would carry her on my lap. It was on the fifth time that I could penetrate. I slept with her at a car park. I did it during the day and night inside the park. I know I have committed an offence.”

Four policemen torture woman over stolen iPad (Photos)

Four policemen attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Lagos State Command have been accused by a trader at Balogun Market in Lagos, Karamat Eleha, of torturing her over false claims that she stole an iPad at the Idumagbo area in Lagos state on May 14th.

According to Punch, the police said a woman who lives in the Lekki axis in Lagos had laid a complaint to the police that she was robbed of her iPad and other belongings. The police officers took their search to Idumagbo Lagos Island where Karamat and her mother lived in a two storey building.

When they arrived, karamat was not at home as she was said to have gone for a fellowship close to her house.
“Around 10.20pm on May 14, I just returned home from a fellowship when the policemen asked me about a missing iPad and I told them I knew nothing about it. They checked my bag, but nothing was found there.”she said
Karamat said the police insisted the tracker device installed on the iPad indicated that it was in an office within the compound. She said she then proceeded to the next street within the area to collect the keys to the office which was owned by a pastor. On arrival, the police said the tracker device indicated that the iPad was in the street where she was coming from. Without any prove that the device was with her, she claimed they whisked her to their station where she was stripped her naked and beat badly.
“They took me to a room which they called ‘theatre’. They stripped me naked and tortured me for hours. When the pain became unbearable, it occurred to me that I saw a neighbour, Mr. Goriola (Baba Ibeji), giving an iPad to his wife while I was going out in the morning on the fateful day. I told them and they went to arrest the wife that same night. The following day, Baba Ibeji was arrested. When they realised that I was bleeding, they took me to a nurse, who charged them N3,000. They later gave the nurse N1,000 to treat me.”she said
Karamat's mother while narrating what happened to her daughter, insisted that the police most foot the bill for the medical attention her daughter is in dire need of.
“Her legs were fractured. That Saturday, it was an officer called Abba Kyari, who ordered them (the cops) to release her immediately. He shouted when he saw the wounds. From there, we took her to a clinic in our area and she was given injections and drugs. When her condition did not improve, we went to the Lagos Island Health Centre. On June 2, I took her to a ‘bone centre’ but I could only afford the bill for treating her left leg. I want her to be treated by the police.”
A resident in her area who was not comfortable with her maltreatment alerted the Commissioner of Police who intervened and instructed that she be released immediately
“They stormed our compound like night marauders. They said they were from SARS. They were led by one Abiola, popularly called Abbey. They said they were looking for an iPad and that a tracker indicated it was within our building. They wanted to break into the office downstairs, but I cautioned them to wait till daybreak for the occupants to come. We were on it when Eleha returned from the fellowship. I told Karamat to go and get the key from the occupant. When she came back, they said the tracker had suddenly indicated the iPad was no longer within the building; that it was going towards Princess and Alkatama streets, where Karamat passed through to collect the key. Even after Baba Ibeji was arrested, they refused to release her. That was why I sent a text message to the commissioner.”the resident who did not want to be named said The Lagos state Police spokesperson while commenting on the matter, described as false Karamat's claims that she was tortured “An iPad was stolen and was traced to her compound. It was observed that the iPad was on the streets she (Karamat) passed through and she was invited to the station. There was no issue of torture. I don’t know what torture she is talking about.”he said

Caitlyn Jenner sued again over February car crash

Olympic champion turned transgender reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner has been sued again in connection with a February car crash in Malibu in which a 69-year-old woman died.
Talent agent Jessica Marie Steindorff filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court seeking unspecified damages related to the four-car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway in the Los Angeles metro area.
Jenner, 65, walked away from the accident uninjured, but in addition to the woman who died, four others were injured, including Steindorff.
The former Olympic decathlete then still known as Bruce Jenner was driving a large SUV that collided with a smaller white car that then swerved into oncoming traffic.
The stepchildren of the dead woman, Kim Howe, also have filed suit seeking unspecified compensation over the crash. She died on impact when her car was struck.
Jenner was pictured at the scene in sunglasses and a baseball cap standing upright with no obvious injuries and was driven away in a police cruiser following the accident.
Jenner became an American sports setting a world record with his Montreal decathlon victory in 1976.
But it was through his marriage to the former Kris Kardashian that he once again became a household name with the reality TV series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” in which he appeared as the sometimes bemused stepfather of her flamboyant daughters.
The couple wed in 1991 and have two daughters together, Kendall and Kylie. Bruce and Kris Jenner are recently divorced. He has said he struggled with gender issues throughout his life.

Cristiano Ronaldo's Mother Arrested for Carrying €55,000 at Airport

Cristiano Ronaldo's mother got herself into trouble with the law recently when she was found to have been travelling with €55,000 (which equals N12.3million) in her hand luggage. according to reports in Spain.

Europa Press reports that Dolores Aveiro was in the Barajas airport in Madrid in April when a routine search found out how much money she was carrying. The maximum amount of cash a person is permitted to carry on an aeroplane when leaving Spain is €10,000, leading to the mother of the three-time Ballon d'Or winner being detained when it was revealed she had over five times the legal limit.

The press agency reports that she could not justify the amount of money she was carrying, so the 

police confiscated €45,000 and allowed her to travel to Portugal with the remaining money.

In carrying so much, Aveiro committed an administrative offence and now must pay a fine to the tax authorities in order to free up the remainder of her money.
