DG insists that female Muslim corpers will not wear hijabs

A group of Muslim youths under the aegis of Muslim Youths in Da’wah on Tuesday at the headquarters of the National Youth Service Corps in Abuja protested against the ban on the use of hijab by female Muslim corps members, especially during orientation camps.

But the Director-General of the NYSC, Brigadier-General, Johnson Olawumi, insisted on the ban, saying it was “for security reasons.”

The national coordinator of LMYiD, Luqman Hassan; and the Deputy Coordinator, Kamarudeen Adefila, had told the NYSC DG
“We are here to discuss with you about the incident that happened recently in various camps across the country. We have a guiding principle which is based on the Holy Q’uran. We are all Nigerians and the principle which guides us is the constitution and the African Charter on Human rights.
“Members of the NYSC are Nigerians who have contributed to the development of this country; female corps members deserve protection by the NYSC. We don’t believe that a female corps member putting on hijab has done any wrong against the Act establishing the NYSC. So they deserve the respect of the NYSC. We have travelled far and wide and visited different camps. Why are the rights of female corps members being infringed upon. We are here to register our displeasure.”
“Many Muslim organisations wanted to protest, but we said wait a while. In fact, we have to intervene to avoid the situation and if Muslims march on the streets, it will attract a lot of negative comments, but people won’t know why we are protesting,” Adefila had added.
In his response, Olawumi said,
 “Under my leadership, the NYSC will accord respect to every corps member, irrespective of tribe and religion. The incident in Benue State was caused by the use of long hijab. The security situation in the country is tough. There is the danger of somebody using hijab for other reasons.
“There have been cases where young girls put on hijab and eventually turn to suicide bombers. Boko Haram members know how to get at whoever they want as target. That is why we frown at the wearing of long hijab. Please call on all your Muslim youths to be patient and adhere to it, just for a short period during the camp. We frown at long hijab because of the security implication.”
The NYSC DG expressed disappointment in the allegation by the visiting youths.
“Why are you so particular on your alleged infraction on the rights of youths without mentioning any one of such on Christian youths? Produce your evidence, write to us and I can assure you that we will act fast. When the incident in Benue State was reported to us, I swung into action and ensured that the camp commandant was decamped immediately. We are not magicians; if you have any evidence, write to us and we will not hesitate to act.”
The NYSC Legal Adviser, Ahmed Tijani Ibrahim, said the incident in Benue State was under investigation.
He said,
“I’m a Muslim and in our camps, I know that we have treated everybody equally. You mentioned the fact that you would have proceeded to protest. Very minor issues could trigger off mass protest.
“We will see the way forward to this complaint. I can assure you that the issue will not be swept under the carpet. The NYSC is very sensitive to the issue of religion and immediately we heard of it, we swung into action and we are on it because issues of religion are very sensitive.”

Kim Kardashian worried,reveals her baby is in the wrong position for childbirth

Kim Kardashian has kept her fans updated with her pregnancy journey and with the due date fast approaching, she has shared her concerns regarding the birth.
On Tuesday, the 35-year-old reality star revealed on her personal website that her baby is in the breech position, meaning his head is up when it is supposed to be down.

Kim Kardashian explained that her baby boy was supposed to have turned by 32 weeks, but never did, which made her worry that she would have to get a c-section.
She wrote;
“I have been doing everything I can to try to turn the baby. I lay practically upside down three times a day for 15 minutes. I play music in the right position and ice my belly in certain spots to get him to squirm out of the breech position. I even started acupuncture where I burn moxa (mugwort) on my pinky toe every day! I am even attempting hypnosis! It’s been hard because I usually go to my mom or Kourtney for baby and pregnancy advice, but they both—with nine total pregnancies!—have never experienced one of these crazy things. Obviously, if it’s an emergency and for the safety of my son, I will get a C-section—but if I don’t need one, I’d rather not. So please wish me luck and pray the baby turns! This whole delivery gives me anxiety, not gonna lie. I hope the baby turns and all goes well but I’m prepared for anything!”

Woman throws her baby from eight floor so her mother wouldn’t see it

A teenage mother has been arrested for trying to hide her new born baby from her parents by throwing it outside a eight floor window.
According to Police in Illinois, the young mother threw her daughter to her death from the eighth floor window of her parents’ apartment ecause she feared her parents would not accept the child because of her mixed race.
The 19-year-old woman, Mubashra Uddin hid her pregnancy from her parents by wearing baggy clothes. She told the baby’s father and a close friend about the pregnancy.
When she threw the baby, a man found the new born with the umbilical cord still attached in the grass outside the high-rise apartment building. The newborn baby was still breathing when the man called for help.
Uddin after denying the baby later turned herself in to police and said that she gave birth to the full term baby and threw her out of the eighth floor apartment window when she heard her mother coming into the room.
Uddin’s lawyer, Adam Sheppard, said she was a straight A student at Devry University. She is being held without bail on a charge of first-degree murder, but she did not attend the hearing because she was hospitalized.
The baby later died from her injuries at a hospital. An autopsy found the baby’s death was a homicide caused by blunt trauma. The baby girl suffered fractures to her skull, spine, and ribs.

BIZARRE!! Mad Woman Deliberately Guts Pregnant Best-Friend, Rips Infant Out Of Her Womb

The year is coming to an end and we are all happy and glad about it. Well, I am, I don’t know about you. Though happiness just took a gloomy look last Friday for the Wades and Suttons as a mad woman performed the most bizarre act on her best-friend.
Ashleigh Wade, 22, slit the throat of Angelikque Sutton, 22, who was her heavily pregnant best friend, then gutted her womb with the knife and performed a personal cesarean on her, stabbing and cutting her womb open, then ripped her baby girl out, after which she called her boyfriend to inform him she just had a baby.
Proclaiming maniacally, to her boyfriend Angel Praylow, 27, when he finally arrived, “IT’S MY BABY” while still soaked in the dead woman’s blood. She claims self-defense.
The crazy woman who is from Bronx, was desperate to have a child so she feigned pregnant for her boyfriend Angel who was under the impression his girlfriend was really pregnant and expecting to deliver on November 15th.
Ashleigh Wade
Ashleigh who’s being referred to as psychotic following her bizarre actions on Friday, has been friends with Angelikque, the slain mother-to-be since they were kids and is presumed to have invited her into her home (Ashleigh Wade’s house) where the crazy operation had gone down. They had lost touch few years back and had only reconnected recently on Facebook.
Angel Praylow was basking in the euphoria of being a dad soon. He had been posting pictures of baby girl clothes and pictures of the sonograms for months.

When Ashleigh didn’t give birth on her supposed due date ie November 15th, he posted on his Facebook account, that same day, “She’s not ready to come yet”, probably still believing his girlfriend was going to have a baby.
Angel Praylow, Ashleigh’s boyfriend
He informed the police whom he had called at 2pm that his girlfriend Ashleigh had summoned him to their home in Wakefield after she had gutted Angelikque and was holding unto the baby when he arrived the brainsick scene, still covered in her best-friend’s blood while declaring that she had just given birth and the baby was hers.
He managed to take the baby from Ashleigh and was cradling the healthy newborn outside their home when the police arrived.
When officers got to the gut-wrenching scene, Ashleigh kept insisting to them that the baby was hers, “It’s my baby” though her home which was the set for the maniacal act proved otherwise since the umbilical cord and placenta were lying on the floor next to the slain mother-to-be Angelikque.
She had cut the umbilical cord herself with the knife.
Police at Ashleigh’s house in Bronx
While Praylow was informed his baby girl will drop in on November 15th, Ashleigh had told neighbors (Marrie Sledge, her landlord’s friend) she was due next week. She said “Wade said she’d be due next Monday, she was kind of heavy. I’m really upset because she was such a nice person. Something’s wrong with her. The couple was very nice”.
Others who gave description of Ashleigh’s demeanor after the attack says she was in a state of shock as her face was expressionless while sitting in the back of the police car to be taken into custody. Her hands were still covered in blood.
Her Landlord, Angela Parris, told The Times that Wade said she had gone to the hospital few weeks ago because she had a complication called placenta trivia which is a pregnancy condition where the opening of the mother’s cervix is covered either partially or fully by the placenta.
Angelique Sutton and her daughter’s father, Patrick Bradley had used the baby-gift registry site, The Bump, to solicit for baby gifts. Records had their due date listed as December 2nd 2015. They had hoped to receive a pink flannel receiving blankets, pink bird-debecked crib bedding, and pink folding hamper.
Although the baby survived, Angelikque Sutton was pronounced dead on arrival. A DNA test confirmed Bradley is the father and he named e her Genesis. Bradley and Sutton were supposed to get married that day.
Angelikque Sutton, pronounced dead on arrival
A search warrant needs to be authorized before any tests to decide if Ashleigh Wade was actually pregnant can be carried out as Ashleigh is refusing to give deliberate consent. If she refuses the warrant, she’ll serve time for obstruction of justice.
She was transferred to Elmhurst Center Hospital in Queens to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. She has been charged with murder, man-slaughter, and criminal possession of a weapon.
Ashleigh Wade also claims she acted in self-defense, stating that her best-friend Angelikque had come at her with the knife (in her house ie Ashleigh’s House) and she had defended herself while mistakenly stabbing her Angelikque in the torso and back with the knife.
She only ripped her womb open to save the infant when she felt Angelikque was about to die. Really? Really Ashleigh? Like how dumb do you think we are?

Plus, reports have it that this isn’t the first time Ashleigh had claimed being pregnant, she had as she called family members in 2014 and told them she had been pregnant but had lost the baby only to get defensive when asked what she had given birth in or further details for the miscarriage. She’s said to have an obsession for babies.
Bronx Councilman Andy King said “It looks like the baby was surgically removed. This is unforeseeable. With the holidays approaching, what a bloody way to start the season”.
“Now what do you feel? If she was your sister or daughter or your girlfriend would you want Ashleigh to be set free on grounds of mental issues or she should serve time?”
Moral of this real news, Don’t be desperate for a child else the devil can come in and finger your mind to do something bizarre.

Man Exonerated Of Rape Charges After 16 Years In Prison

A poor man in the United States who goes by the name Luis Vargas broke down in tears after a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge, William Ryan, overturned his rape conviction.
Unfortunately, Luis Vargas had already been in jail for 16 years before he was declared innocent, after new evidence emerged proving his innocence. The judge ordered the case dismissed after new DNA evidence linked the crime to a serial attacker on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. Before that, Luis Vargas had been in prison for crimes he didn’t commit since 1999 and was serving a sentence of 55 years to life for three sexual assaults.
When the verdict was announced declaring him innocent, he placed his hand on his forehead, covered his eyes and shed some tears as he was finally free of the shame.

Lara Odoffin, a Nigerian living in the UK had her job offer  revoked because of her hair. She was told that her braids were not part of the ‘uniform’

‘If you are unable to take them out I unfortunately won’t be able to offer you any work.’

In her own post, she wrote: ‘So after being accepted for a position within this company, they have TAKEN BACK the offer of a position on the grounds that if I do not take my braids out.
‘Naturally I simply cannot work for the company. This type of discrimination should not still be happening in this day and age and any establishment still condoning such practices deserve to be shamed and criticised.Being a black woman means that to have a long term hairstyle that stays neat is always going to be a problem. Having braids that last for 2-4 months and can be packed neatly and styled to however a workplace requires is the solution to this problem. No workplace has any right to forbid you from this.”
