Man Killed After Winning LOTTO In FESTAC Lagos

A 35-year-old man, Ejike Onyejekwe, has been killed in the FESTAC Town area of Lagos State.

PUNCH Metro learnt that the victim, who lived on 21 Road, K Close, FESTAC, was stabbed to death after winning a lot of money from a lottery.

Our correspondent gathered that Onyejekwe, to celebrate the winning, bought drinks for his friends and threw a party last Thursday and Friday.

It was learnt that on Friday evening, he was heard arguing with an unidentified person on the phone.

He allegedly told his friend he was going to see the man, but never returned.

His corpse was allegedly discovered the next day on one of the estates.

A resident, who did not want to be identified, said the chairman of the estate called the attention of residents to the corpse on Saturday.

He said, “I was sipping tea around 7am when I heard the chairman blowing a whistle. I thought it was strange, but my wife called my attention to the surging crowd on the estate.

“I went downstairs and saw the corpse on the road. Like everybody, I was alarmed. We could not tell how the corpse got there or who he was. He had multiple stab injuries in the head. We all resolved that the case should be reported at the FESTAC Police Station.”

It was learnt that some of the victim’s friends later identified him.

The corpse was said to have been deposited in a morgue, while the police arrested and detained the chairman of the estate and his secretary; they were later released.

A source told PUNCH Metro that the victim won a lottery few days to his death.

He said, “The man won a lot of money in a lottery and from last Thursday to Friday, he was asking his friends to drink at his expense.

“He was called on the phone that Friday evening and he went to meet a man. I suspect that a gang stabbed him and used an object to hit him in the head. There were bruises on his knees and it appeared they dragged him on the floor as well.

“When the police were removing his corpse, blood was dripping from his mouth and nostrils. He was murdered in cold blood.”

A friend of the victim, who did not identify himself, said his relative had visited the community.

“I can’t say why he was killed. Nobody knows. He just returned from a visit to the village,” he added.

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, adding that the case had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba.

She added that the police had already arrested two suspects in connection with the death.

She said, “The chairman of one of the estates reported that at about 7am, he woke up and saw the victim lying lifeless with injuries on his head and body. The corpse was deposited at the Isolo General Hospital Mortuary for autopsy. Two suspects, Suleiman Ahmed and Ibrahim Yusuf, were arrested and the case transferred to the SCIID for further investigation.”

Man Goes Unclad Because LASTMA Wants To Tow His Vehicle (Photos, Video)

It is no news that Nigeria authorities especially the forces can frustrate the life of any individual in this country if they choose to do so. Lets not even talk about the Police or the RRS, or the Mopols or VIO or FRSC etc, but LASTMA is getting worst day by day.

For Instance: I don't see why following a road which the danfo drivers followed will get them to tow your vehicle but they wont even bat an eye on the Danfos. This is pathetic.

Anyway the picture above is the picture of a man who the LASTMA was trying to tow his vehicle and all of a sudden, he removed his cloths, sat down in front of his vehicle and started shouting on the officials to tell him what he has done.

What is really wrong with this people? And I love Lagos, no matter how tough the officials think they are, they will always meet their match one day.

See the video via link below - no be small thing ooo, see craze.

5 Advantages And Disadvantages Of Lagos BRT

The Lagos Bus Rapid Transit is also known as Lagos BRT. It was launched in March 2008 and it is operated by LAMATA (Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority).

Advantages:

1) It is Cheaper: Ikorodu to mile 12 is N70 by BRT while smaller buses charge N100 or more.

2) Less travel time: With BRT, it usually takes a shorter period of time to travel from point A to B especially during rush hours. Thanks to the dedicated BRT lanes.

3) Job creation: From drivers to repair technicians and from cleaners to ticketing staff, the BRT system is contributing its own quota towards the reduction of unemployment in Lagos State and Nigeria.

4) Physical activity: Many Lagosians saw this point as a disadvantage when we sampled their opinion on the subject. However, we think standing inside the buses or walking to the designated and farther BRT bus stops have more advantages as walking is one of the best form of exercise for a healthy lifestyle. This is one of the reasons you hardly see overweight and obese people on the streets of London and New York City.

5) Safety and comfort: BRT is obviously safer to ride in compared to the Danfo buses. It is also safer than some private vehicles like the Kia Picanto. The air-conditioned buses also provide its occupants with comfortable seats.

Disadvantages:

1) Global warming: Ideally, this is a major advantage of BRT in other countries, as reduction in the number of cars on the road leads to reduced carbon monoxide emission. However, it is the other way round in Lagos as BRT buses are currently having a smoke emission competition with container trucks. It is very surprising that Nigeria is yet to implement a law against emission which has caused rivers to start drying up in the country.

2) Rough drivers: It is disheartening that the BRT drivers think they have 100% right of way at all times, therefore, they use their big and scary buses to intimidate other drivers on the road.

3) Increased traffic for motorists: The introduction of the BRT led to an instant increase in traffic congestion on several major roads because a lane was converted to accommodate the Government operated buses. Lagosians have adjusted to this issue over time.

4) No refund: If you use the last money on you to board a BRT bus and it breaks down midway, OYO is your case. You are on your own as there is no refund system in place. In some cases, you may be fortunate to get another BRT to join.

5) Others: Occasional problems with tap in – tap out machine and difficulty to reverse when another bus breaks down ahead.

You can add the advantages and disadvantages you have noticed in the comment section.

See Naira To Dollar Exchange Rate As At 1983 (Pictured)

We know this is not the best of times for Nigeria, but what a lot of new generation Nigerians don't know is that the Naira used to be more valuable than the dollar in those years. Those were the times when the country didn't depend much on Petroleum. The economy was so strong that our currency was being spent in other European countries, even in the UK.

We hope things are going to get back on track 😟😟

MUST READ!!! 9 Hidden Features Of Everyday Things You Probably Didn’t Know

The average person just love to use things without asking questions.

Here are a few things we use everyday with hidden features you might not have noticed but means a lot and serve a lot of purpose.

1. The Little Hole In The Side Of A Pen
At a first glance, it might strike you as just a design but it is there for a reason and meant to serve a good purpose. Without the hole, a pen will be completely airtight and as you write and use the ink, the pressure will fall preventing the ink from flowing to the tip and eventually the pen will cease to write although there is still ink in it.

On highlands or in planes where the pressure is lower, a pen with no hole can explode soiling your attire with ink. The hole equalizes the pressure in the pen to allow it to write. So the next time you see it, you should know it is not just there for fun.




2. An Extra Piece Of Fabric

Those who usually buy from “bend down boutiques” might not relate to this but if you’re the type who always buy brand new clothing from boutiques, you will notice there is a piece of fabric with a button on it tucked in the pocket of either a shirt or trousers. Many people actually think it is meant for patching when you get the attire torn but that’s far from it. It is actually meant for you to use to test how it will react with detergents when using your washing machine. So what you need to do with is by washing it to see how it will fade before washing the main attire to prevent colors from sipping into other fabrics



3. The Little Hole In A Pen Cap

You might be wondering why there is a little hole at the tip of the cap of your pen and you might not see the importance of it or you might assume it is just a design, but it really serves a significant purpose.

Without that hole, whenever you close your pen, the air trapped in the cap and the inserting of the pen will create pressure which will push the ink out of the tip of the pen preventing it from writing and secondly, it is meant to prevent death if you accidentally swallow the cap. In case you swallow a pen cap, the hole will help you breathe easily till it is surgically removed, without it, many people would have choked on it and died.





4. Little Hole In A Padlock

When you check the bottom of your padlock, you will notice there is a little hole close to where you put the key to unlocking the padlock. This might mean nothing to you but it is there for a purpose. The hole is meant for you to grease your padlock in case it gets rusty and gets stuck and you need to get oil in it. It is also meant to drain water that gets trapped in the padlock. If your padlock does not have the hole, then it is made out of stainless steel and it is supposed to be used indoors to prevent water from getting in.





5. The Punt Under Wine Bottles

The dimple under wine bottles known as Punt are not just there for decoration purposes, it is actually there to help the wine sparkle while in storage. Had it not been because of the punt under wine bottles, the bottle will exert pressure from the wine and explode.



6. The Blue Side Of An Eraser

You remember those erasers we used back in school which had one side to be blue and the other to be red? Back in school, we were told the blue is meant for erasing pen writings, most of us tried it and it obviously didn’t work, we ended up tearing our books. This is because the blue side is not meant for that, it is actually meant for erasing pencil writings on hard surfaces while the red side was meant for erasing pencil writings on soft surfaces. Now you have it, you can teach it to your children so they don’t repeat your mistake.πŸ˜€





7. The Bump At The End Of A Laptop Cable

The bump at the end of your laptop cable known as ferrite beads is not there to distract you or mess up your day. It is not just there for fun but serves a good purpose. It is there to prevent interference in the cable.




8. The Hole In Airplane Windows

If you’ve flown on a plane before and sat close to the window, you will notice there is a small hole in the plastic glass covering the windows. That hole is meant to allow air to flow into the plane and also to regulate the pressure in the plane.




9. Why Men & Women’s Button Are Placed On Opposite Sides;
Apparently, buttons date back to the 1930s. By then, buttons were considered a luxurious fashion item and only the rich could afford them fashionable pieces. At that time, affluent ladies had maids who dressed them and that is why the buttons of the ladies shirts or clothes were put on the left so that the maids can quickly and easily button their madams with the assumption that a majority of the people are right-handed. Men however, mostly dressed themselves and that is why the buttons were put on the right side.
While this is the most common theory out there, others suggest that the male clothes button were put on the right side so that they can easily and quickly remove their swords when at war. Whatever the case, it still works these days since most men like to UnCloth their ladies when things are about to heat up in the bedroom.*wink*😜😜

Ondo primary: Crisis hits APC as Tinubu says Oyegun must go



The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, has demanded the removal of the party’s National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, over what he called the latter’s anti-democratic handling of the  party affairs.
Tinubu made this demand in a scathing statement entitled, “Oyegun’s Ondo fraud: The violation of democracy in the APC,” released by the Tinubu Media Office on Sunday.
The party leader said the APC’s democratic credentials had been dealt a big blow by Odigie-Oyegun’s conduct, especially with his handling of the outcome of the Ondo State governorship primary.

He said the APC was a party borne out of the quest for democratic good governance, arguing that the ideology was currently under a critical threat by those who managed to be in the party but were never part of it.
According to him, from the party’s inception, the principles of democratic fairness and justice are to guide the APC’s internal deliberations.
He stressed that the party’s founders realised that it was only by fair dealing that the party could remain faithful to the progressive ideals that were presented to the Nigerian electorate as governing creed.
“If the party can not justly govern itself, it will find it difficult to establish and maintain just government throughout the nation,” he said.
The APC leader stressed that before now, the party was the embodiment of a democratic promise made between its members as well as a democratic vow made to the public.
Tinubu said, “Evidently, some errant members believe that promises and vows are mere words to be easily spoken and more easily broken. Chairman John (Odigie-) Oyegun has breached these good pledges in a most overt and brazen display.
“In doing so, (Odigie-) Oyegun has dealt a heavy blow to the very party he professes to lead. It is an awful parent who suffocates his own child for the sake of a few naira.
“The party was supposed to buttress the APC members elected to government at all levels. Because of (Odigie-) Oyegun’s conduct of our affairs, the party is rapidly becoming an albatross to those it is meant to help.”
On the just concluded Ondo State governorship primaries, Tinubu said, “(Odigie-) Oyegun’s comportment regarding the Ondo State primary will become the textbook definition of political treachery and malfeasance of the basest order.
“In early September, the (Ondo) State primary was held. A purported winner was named. Having faith in the ways of the party, Tinubu publicly accepted what he assumed to be a verdict honestly derived.
“As a democrat, one must face the possibility of defeat and accept such an outcome with as much grace as one would embrace victory.”
The APC leader said one of the few bright spots during the conduct of the primary was the Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar, whom he said chaired the primary convention with decorum and impartiality. He noted that he (Abubakar) was unaware that a tampered list had been slipped into the process.
Tinubu added, “Indeed within hours of the announcement, news began to filter in that gravely disturbed me. Credible allegations of fraud troubled the waters.
“The delegate list had been materially altered by someone in a strategic position to do so. The names of over 150 valid delegates were excised to make room for an equal number of impostors.
“This was not a clerical error. The alteration was wilfully executed that the primary would be directed toward a chosen end that bore nothing in common with the will of most state party members. A cunning few had tried to deceive many into believing they were outnumbered.”
The APC national leader narrated details of what transpired behind closed doors during the NWC meeting, held to deliberate on the report of the appeal panel saddled with the responsibility of handling the appeals.
He accused Odigie-Oyegun of upturning the decision of the majority who voted in favour of the cancellation of the primary and the conduct of a fresh one.
Tinubu stated, “He has shown that he and democratic fairplay cannot exist in the same party at the same time.
“If Tinubu is to choose between John (Odigie-) Oyegun and progress toward a better Nigeria, the choice has already been made. For those who care about the party, who care about Nigeria and its chance for a better tomorrow, now is the time to stand against this brewing evil before it grows to encompass all we have built and all we hold dear.”
Attempts to get the reaction of Odigie-Oyegun were unsuccessful.
He neither picked nor returned several calls made to his line.
A response to a text message sent to him was still being awaited as of the time of filing this report.

Why We Rusticated Olorunfemi Adeyeye - UNILAG




Olorunfemi Adeyeye and other University of Lagos students who were recently rusticated by the institution were not punished for their participation in a public protest, the institution explained on Saturday. 


In a statement signed by T. O. Adebule, Deputy Registrar (Information), the institution said while it does not wish to trade issues with a rusticated student, Mr. Adeyeye was specifically found to have breached its Social Misconducts and Penalties Regulations of University of Lagos as clearly stated in the 2015-2016 Students Information Handbook.

It said the institution was aware that of Mr. Adeyeye’s posts on Facebook and other social media, one of which was titled:  “The Senate of the University of Lagos, a conglomeration of Academic Ignorami.”  It noted in them; he made unsubstantiated and insulting statements about the person of the Vice-Chancellor and the entire Academic staff of the University of Lagos who constitute the University’s Senate.

“It is worrisome that the public is being made to believe that a student who abused and insulted all lecturers, who wrote that lecturers resisted the renaming of the University because it gives them leverage to have sex with female students should be promoted as a RADICAL and a REVOLUTIONIST,” the statement continued.  “A student who avers that the First Class Honours degree in Chemical Engineering obtained by the Vice-Chancellor in 1974 from the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University) is a waste.”

Affirming that the University of Lagos is committed to awarding its certificates not only for learning but for the character as well, the statement pointed out that over 7,000 Degree and Diploma certificates duly signed by the Vice-Chancellor and Registrar of the University are awarded every year. 
“It is, therefore, surprising, that someone expecting to receive one of such certificates would cast aspersions on the entire learning processes and academic integrity of the University,” it said.

With reference to Mr. Adeyeye’s arrest by the police last Wednesday, the University noted that despite the rules/regulations governing the conduct of rusticated students, Mr. Adeyeye organized a group of boys to cause commotion and chaos at the gate.  It explained that the arrest, along with other non-students of the University (two of whom are serving youth corpers), was unconnected with any protest. 

“It was a consequence of his desperate attempt to attract cheap publicity [and] unearned public sympathy and continuously bring the name of the University into disrepute. “It should be reiterated that the earlier misdemeanor of Mr. Olorunfemi Adeyeye attracted EXPULSION,” the institution reiterated.  “The University Senate in tempering justice with mercy handed him a 4-Semester rustication.  His recent conduct will do him no good.”

Expressing its appreciation to those media houses that have objectively and professionally disseminated issues concerning the institution, the University reiterated its commitment to the production of “total graduates who exhibit excellence in character and learning.”

I Speak At The United Nations. So as a child, I saw many things on TV I did not understand. I still see many things I don't understand, but I am learning a little how some things in world works. Not all of it is nice. Not all of it is good to learn about. Sometimes, I ask why cant someone just do something. I am in New York for the UN events, and have seen a lot already. Yesterday, I got to visit the UN, and spoke. I met some more world leaders, and saw a lot just walking past me. I was invited by some leaders to hear my ideas too. I still don't understand a lot of things, but I am enjoying myself, and also learning a lot. I definitely need wisdom. Thank you LORD Jesus, for this Gift and the Favors. I am loving it
