0

The children were taken to a hospital within the community, where it was confirmed that they had already died. Residents of Ikorodu in Lagos were on Sunday thrown into mourning when the corpse of two children and a dog were found in a freezer.The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the incident was said to have occurred at 2, Christian Onoja Street, Igbogbo in Igbogbo-Baiyeku Local Government Development Area at 4.30pm.A neighbour who preferred anonymity told NAN that the children, Emmanuel Edeh, seven years and Darasimi Edeh, female, four years and their father, Mr Michael Edeh, were at home on the day of the incident.“On Sunday afternoon, we were alerted by their father who emerged from within the house asking about the whereabouts of his children.“We were surprise because their father is always at home with the kids when their mother goes about her trading.“So, when their father came asking us (neighbours) about where his children were, we all began to search the neighbourhood for them, but could not find them,’’ the source, said.The source added that when initial efforts to locate the children proved abortive, a call was put through to the mother of the kids, who came running down to their residence.“Their mother was visibly disturbed upon arrival and immediately began to search for them, this time, in the house.“After a while she came wailing that she discovered the lifeless body of children and their dog inside the freezer,’’ the source added.NAN gathered that the children were taken to a hospital within the community, but were told that the children had passed-on which prompted the incident being reported at the Igbogbo Police Division on Sunday evening.When correspondent of NAN visited the Briggston Hospital in Selewu, Igbogbo, where the children were taken he was told that the children were dead on arrival.“It is true that I received a case involving two children, but upon assessment I discovered that they had passed on and there was no resuscitation effort that could be performed on them.ALSO READ: Find out how Togolese cook ‘confessed’ to stabbing Credit Switch boss to death“So, I advised the parents to go and conduct an autopsy to ascertain the real cause of death,’’ Dr. Briggs Umezurike, told NAN.When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, told NAN that the Commissioner of Police had been informed about the incident.“I have confirmed the matter and the CP directed that the father of the deceased be brought to notice to know his ulterior motive or whether it is an act of negligence,” he said.

Udom’s commitment to God and the people

0

The governor has shown these past three and half years that he is not the conventional politician who would discard the oath of office the moment he leaves the inauguration grounds. When Udom Emmanuel took the oath of office as Akwa-Ibom State Governor on May 29, 2015, he knew that he was not just carrying out a ceremonial ritual that the occasion demanded. He fully understood the political, moral, social and spiritual responsibilities resting on his shoulders. He was doing what the occasion demanded, all right. But he was also making a solemn pledge to his creator that he would deliver on what he had promised to do for the people of the state if they gave him their mandate. They had fulfilled their part of by giving him their mandate and so the time had come for him to begin the process of fulfilling his promises to them.The governor has shown these past three and half years that he is not the conventional politician who would discard the oath of office the moment he leaves the inauguration grounds, as many are wont to do. He has, in words and deeds, remained guided by that oath. And this is perhaps the reason he soon found himself on a collision course with those who expected him to be the ‘normal politician’ – those who sold him to the people of the state as the best material to govern them, but who would, along the line, realize they made a ‘mistake’ in their choice, completely ignoring God’s prerogative in installing leaders as it pleases Him.Akwa Ibom is a state that occupies a special place in God’s heart. The full name of the state (Akwa Abasi Ibom, meaning Almighty God), did not come by happenstance. Those who gave the state that name knew that they were invoking God into its affairs, and that He would always have a hand in what transpires in the state at all times. And what better choice as governor at a time like this than a man with deep religious convictions and obeisance to God in all his actions! Udom has remained committed to God and the people of the state since assuming the reins of government. To God, he has not wavered in his religious obligations by allowing his political position to take the better part of him and wearing a toga that is different from a man of faith and a church elder that he was before he became governor. Surely, the former cannot get subsumed by the latter.If outward commitment to carrying out religious obligations are a measure of one’s religiosity, then Udom hasn’t been found wanting, as he is said not to miss his regular Sunday services, except when the demands of office do not permit him the time to do so. Recall that about one and half years after assuming office, the governor escaped death right inside a place of worship, when a new church building he went to inaugurate collapsed, killing quite a good number of worshipers. His plan to build a 10, 000 capacity church building is in line with his effort to keep the state on the religious path that has enabled it to triumph in the face of numerous challenges, some of which have been created by its leaders.In 1983, while speaking at his valedictory church service at Qua Iboe Church, Edgerly Road, in Calabar, the late Dr. Clement Isong, who was about to bow out as governor of the then Cross River State, had said the greatest lesson he learnt during his four-year tenure as governor was that to be a successful politician in Nigeria, one must be able to call black white, and call white black. He vowed never to advise any of his children to go into politics in Nigeria. Isong was too decent, polished and refined a man to have dabbled into politics in the first place.Udom has not been a ‘successful’ Nigerian politician, in the late Dr. Isong’s understanding. This is because he does not know how to call black white, or call white black. It is even more so because his quiet, calm and warm disposition is at variance with what the average Nigerian politician is known to be – all noise but little action. His has been little noise but more action.The governor’s commitment to the people of the state has seen him execute projects that have direct impact on their lives. Perhaps the reason not much seems to be heard about his achievements outside the state is that they haven’t been accompanied by the propaganda that has become the hallmark of performance, especially at state and federal levels. But the people of the state know the truth. They know that Udom is working. They also know that, in contrast, some of the so-called legacy projects that were supposed to have been executed with much fanfare and propaganda, which have left the state mired in huge debts, were nothing but a scam that put the state’s money in the pocket of an individual, as it has emerged. Udom’s tenure has been a test of his commitment to the two ‘constituencies’ that really matter – God and the people of the state. In another six months or so, these two constituencies will decide whether or not he has remained true to the oath he took in his first coming. They are the ones that will judge him based on his performance so far. Thankfully, the governor knows this quite well, the reason he has remained focused on delivering on his promises.Let nobody imagine that they hold the key to the governor’s second term in office. Akwa Ibom is not a state where an individual assumes the position of an emperor because he had the good fortune of holding office, which allowed him unfettered access to the resources of the state – a state where people hold public office at the pleasure of one individual. We have seen it happen in other states, where somebody plays God, turning a deaf ear to pleas to allow a governor go for a second time as if he has the power of life and death. Akwa Ibom is not that state. By Bernard Etim, a retired public servant, lives in Lagos. This is a featured post.

Sector Commander of the corps in the state, Mr Rotimi Adeleye, made this known at the 2018 African Road Safety Day and World Day of Remembrance of Road Traffic Victims, in Akure. The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Monday said no fewer than 36 persons had died in motor accidents in Ondo state from January till date.Sector Commander of the corps in the state, Mr Rotimi Adeleye, made this known at the 2018 African Road Safety Day and World Day of Remembrance of Road Traffic Victims, in Akure.The United Nations (UN) and African Union (AU) adopted third Sunday in November every year as World Day for the remembrance for road traffic victims. Theme for this year’s edition is “Roads Have Stories.”Adeleye said that FRSC was organising a week-long activities to commemorate the event and to sensitise the living to the need to stem the tide of road traffic crashes.He said that there were some black spots on some roads, including Oka-Akoko axis in North Senatorial District, Akure-Owo axis, Ore-Lagos Expressway and Onyeragbulem Junction in Akure, where accidents often occurred in the state. “On May 29, 16 lives were lost to road crashes in Oka-Akoko, with 13 of the victims burnt to ashes without identification.“On Jan. 21, along Akure-Owo road, near Celestial Church by Agbogbo Junction, eight people died on-the-spot in an accident.“In the same vein, on July 15, at Ogbese in Akure North Local Government Area, eight people also died.“Also, the most recent that claimed lives of a family at Onyeragbulem junction in Akure occurred on Oct. 3 when a mother with her two children and elderly woman died,” he said.Adeleye said that the crashes were caused by commercial drivers, but stated that the command had introduced enforcement to the section on any erring driver of speeding.“We have put enforcement in place, if you traverse the state and you are speeding and you are apprehended, we are ready to delay you for two hours.“With this enforcement, it will put some senses into theirs head so that when you get to Ondo state you will reduce your speed and put some senses in your driving culture,” he said.The commander said that the effects of the crashes were felt not only within the immediate families but in the extended and nation “because it depletes it virile workforce’’.He, therefore, called on major stakeholders and road users to join hand with the command to make the roads safer, especially during the yuletide.“Road safety is everybody’s business; therefore, everybody should be involved in one way or the other in making our highways safe.“We are all aware that government alone cannot effectively fund road safety programmes, neither can a government agency like FRSC single-handedly deal effectively with road safety issues,” Adeleye said.While speaking at the event, the Ondo state governor,Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, commended the efforts of the FRSC in reduction of road crashes in the state.

NAN reports that news about the use of Snipper in preserving beans broke out last week which has made many consumers to stay away from it. As the rage on the use of Snipper pesticide to preserve beans continues, some sellers of the staple food have complained of decline in purchase and heavy losses.The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that beans traders in the popular Ketu Produce Market in Lagos and Magboro, Ogun State are already counting their losses as they lamented that consumers now shun one of Nigeria’s popular table food.NAN reports that news about the use of Snipper in preserving beans broke out last week which has made many consumers to stay away from it.However, the traders in the popular markets were already feeling the heat as they continued to make heavy losses on the account of boycott by the consumers.A beans dealer in Ketu market, simply known as Donatus, said he had yet to make any sale since Saturday when he made the last sale of the food item.“I am surprised by the news, I only noticed that the sale dropped on Saturday but I came to know about the Snipers beans when I asked on Sunday what is going on.“I was told by a friend in the market that the decline in purchase is due to the news going round that some dealers are using Snipers to preserve the beans.“If not for other food items, I would have been left with nothing to sell because today, I am yet to make sale,’’ he said.For Margaret Uche, another beans retailer in Ketu, government should find a way of controlling the situation as it had affected her income.“Before the news came around I used to sell at least a bag of beans because many of those selling the cooked beans are not coming again because their consumers are not buying.“The news about the Snipper beans is a bad one, and I want the government to act fast to arrest the culprits because they are destroying our business.“Many like beans because it is one of the food that we can use in many ways, either eating it when cooked, or making it as paste for the popular “Moin Moin or even soup,’’ she said.Also, another retailer known as Audu, however, feigned ignorance about the Snipper beans. He said he was unaware of the news going round.“I don’t know what it is all about, I have been selling my product, I use to hawk from one place to the other and nobody has yet to ask me not to sell,’’ Audu said.In a related development, the beans boycott had also affected restaurant owners that were selling cooked beans in Magboro, as consumption of the food is now on sharp decline.A restaurant owner, Adijat Salako, said that many of her customers now refused to eat beans to avoid eating the ones allegedly preserved with Snipper.“Most of my customers now avoid eating beans and I have stop buying it in large quantities. I first knew about the product when one of them asked for Snipper beans.“When I was about to serve him, he rejected it and told me if I have yet to hear about the news about beans preserved with Snipper.“For me beans is one of the most consumed food in my canteen because many eat it with rice, yam, noodles, spaghetti, bread and so on,’’ she said.

Find out how Togolese cook ‘confessed’ to stabbing Credit Switch boss to death

The Togolese took advantage of the absence of his boss’ wife to perpetrate his wicked act. On Wednesday, October 31, 2018, the 67-year-old boss of Credit Switch Limited, Chief Opeyemi Bademosi was stabbed to death multiple times at his home, №3B, Onikoyi Lane, Parkview Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos.Investigations immediately commenced into the death of the business mogul and Ondo State Indigene by the members of the Lagos State Police Command to ascertain the perpetrator’s status and it looks like that quest is finally over. According to Punch Metro, the prime suspect in the matter was his Togolese cook, 22-year-old Sunday Adefonou Anani who had only arrived in the mogul’s home on October 28, 2018 — three days before he perpetrated the act. He has reportedly confessed the Police that he took advantage of the mogul’s wife, Mrs. Ebunola Bademosi’s brief absence to conduct a transaction at Polaris Bank. In a statement to journalists, CSP Chike Oti, Police Public Relations Person for the Lagos State Police Command said Anani had singlehandedly perpetrated the crime of stabbing his boss multiple times with a kitchen knife while attempting to rob him.He says, “The journey that eventually ended the life of Opeyemi Bademosi, an Ondo State indigene, began in the deceased’s hometown, Ondo town.“On Thursday, October 25, 2018, when one Kofi Friday, 27, returned from Togo to Nigeria and called his compatriots, including the murder suspect, Sunday Anani, 22, to his house at the Yaba area of Ondo town, where he told Anani that he had through the assistance of a friend, Agbeko Ayenahin, helped him secure a job as a cook in a rich man’s house in the Ikoyi area of Lagos State.“The suspect was subsequently taken to the deceased’s house in Ondo State on Friday, October 26, 2018. It is important to mention that the deceased usually went home every last weekend of the month; so, on Sunday, October 28, 2018, he brought the suspect, Sunday Anani, to Lagos to start working as his cook.“On Wednesday, October 31, 2018, the suspect, who had the intention of robbing Bademosi, had observed that the late businessman’s wife, Ebunola Bademosi, had left home for a transaction at Polaris Bank, before he made his way into his room through the kitchen to the lobby, and then to the room, which was the scene of the crime.“According to the suspect, when he got to the deceased’s room and met him on the bed, he said,‘ Chief, I am not here to kill you’; the deceased asked him, ‘What do you want?’ and he replied, ‘Money’. “When the deceased said he had no money in the house, the suspect said he tied him up with a cloth and put him on the floor. He went further to say that the deceased, while still on the floor, kicked him, causing the knife he tucked inside his pants to fall off.“He added that Bademosi crawled to pick the knife, but he (Anani) was faster; that he struggled with him and the knife accidentally pierced the deceased. “He said that while exiting the room, Bademosi took the knife to stab him, so, he (Anani) kicked him and he (Bademosi) fell down. He then took the knife and stabbed him twice in the chest.”ALSO READ: Deadbeat dad publicly beats his breadwinner wife and child in Ibadan (Video)When Anani finished committing the offence, he fled to Ondo State, Nigeria by assisting one Dangote truck driver to load his truck with cement.CSP Oti has also confirmed that Anani will be charged on one count each for armed robbery and murder, “Investigation into the case revealed the following facts: that the incident occurred on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, around 08.10am; that the suspect committed the offence when the deceased’s wife, Mrs. Ebunola Bademosi, went to Polaris Bank, Falomo branch, Lagos, for a transaction.“That the suspect fled the crime scene, when he heard knocks on the kitchen door, and went to Ondo State for refuge; that the deceased’s wife entered the crime scene through the sitting room after knocking several times on the kitchen door without any response from the suspect.“That the deceased’s wife, Ebunola Bademosi, reported the incident to the police after she found her husband in a pool of blood on October 31, 2018; that the deceased, some minutes before his death, called his wife, Ebunola Bademosi, on the phone, complaining that the suspect, Sunday Anani, barged into his bedroom uninvited.“That the suspect, Sunday Anani, stabbed the deceased several times in the thoracic region; that the scene of the crime, which is the deceased’s bedroom, was scattered and stained with blood; and that after killing the deceased, the suspect stole his Samsung phone and fled to Ondo State, where he was later arrested on Friday, November 2, 2018.“That the stolen Samsung phone was recovered from the suspect upon his arrest in Ondo State; that the kitchen knife used in killing the deceased was found inside the deceased’s toilet; that the suspect’s apron found at the scene of crime was soaked in blood; that the suspect broke down in tears and confessed to the act after he was confronted with the CCTV footage.“That the suspect led the investigation team to the crime scene, demonstrating/reconstructing how he carried out the crime; that, samples recovered from the scene of the incident have been handed over to the Forensic and DNA Department of the Ministry of Justice for examination and analysis.“That the autopsy report attributed the cause of death to (a) Bilateral haemothorax (b) Laceration of the lung and intercostal vessels, and © Multiple sharp force trauma to the chest; that the other suspects, Kofi Friday, Agbeko Ayenahin, Salisu Hussein and Nura Mamudu, are not linked to the crime.“It is evident that the suspect single-handedly committed the crime by stabbing Opeyemi Bademosi to death with a kitchen knife, with intent to steal from him. To this end, the suspect (Anani) will be arraigned in court, while the other suspects, who are not linked to the crime, will be released to reliable sureties.”He also said that Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi has directed that the case file be duplicated and forwarded to the office of the Directorate of Public Prosecutions for vetting and legal advice.

Is this bank billboard ad throwing shade?

0

Sterling Ban’s billboard advert seems to be shaking tables once again. It might seem that a fresh round of bank wars has begun. Over the weekend, Saturday, November 10, 2018, to be precise a Twitter user @I_pissvodka tweeted a series of photos which featured the billboard of Sterling Bank. The billboard could be said to be eye-popping as the words “orange is so last season” was written on it. Now, what makes this ad interesting is that the colour orange is synonymous to Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB).  Secondly, this week happens to be GT Fashion Weekend, a consumer-focused fashion exhibition and capacity building event that aims to promote enterprise within the fast-growing Nigerian fashion industry sponsored by GTB. The billboards were sighted at different locations in Lagos.  On social media, the verdict was that Sterling Bank was throwing shade at GTB.  The gist does not stop there. From the pictures on social media, yellow paint was splashed on the controversial words featured on one of the billboards. By who? Maybe, an anonymous vandal.  This is not the first controversial ad from Sterling Bank. On Friday, July 20, 2018, Sterling Bank caused a stir on social media when it threw shades at several of its competitors. The latest controversial advert has not been posted on any of Sterling Bank’s social media accounts. Pulse has reached out to Sterling Bank for comments on the story.

Some visitors to the fair who were overwhelmed by the invention bought the product, labeled ‘Tens Heaters.’ An electric water heating bucket invented by a Nigerian, Mr Jude Ehiabhi, was attracting high patronage at the ongoing Lagos International Trade Fair, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.Some visitors to the fair who were overwhelmed by the invention bought the product, labelled ‘Tens Heaters.’A NAN correspondent at the trade fair reports that the locally-made electric water heater was made with five-litre and 10-litre plastic buckets.The heater bucket had a wire connected underneath that could be plugged to electric circuit.The 37-year-old entrepreneur said he acquired the skill about seven years ago when he couldn’t further his university studies.‘‘I first tried to repair abandoned water heaters at home, then I studied how the wires were connected.‘‘One day I decided to connect the wire underneath a bucket and sealed the holes and that’s all.“At first I thought people wouldn’t appreciate it, then I started selling it to individuals; if not that I lacked funds I would have further my studies to learn more about it.‘‘I want both the government and other stakeholders responsible for entrepreneural development to assist me, so I can give it a nice packaging to meet international standard,” Ehiabhi said.Mrs Bola Adeshina, who visited the product stand, said the innovation was good and very convincing.‘‘The most interesting part is that the bucket is not melting, neither is it leaking; such talent should not be left alone to bear his burden; he needs to be assisted financially by relevant authorities,’’ she said.A businessman, who identified himself as Thomas Ola, said the innovation was quite impressive.‘‘In fact, I am still amazed with what I am seeing, a big bucket like this can heat water without leaking; this is shocking.‘‘It is true that Nigerians have talents,’’ he said.NAN reports that the price of the five-litre bucket is N2,000 while that of 10-litres is N3,000.

Nurse claims she hasn’t been paid after selling baby’s placenta to a cleric

0

Her payment was meant to be N20k to potentially mortgage a child’s future for rituals. Over the past few months, Pulse has reported the worrying realities of ‘baby making factories’ operated by clerics and couples who sell their babies for over N200k, but this is equally another level of devilishness.Fatima Suleiman, a nursing attendant, charged with saving lives has decided to go rogue for N20k and mortgage a baby’s future by selling his placenta to Islamic cleric, Salaudeen Ibrahim at Capstone Hospital, Taiwo Road, Ilorin, Kwara State.According to Punch Metro, Suleiman whose job was to safeguard life and cater to sick people was arrested on Thursday, November 8, 2018, says she has not been paid by Cleric Ibrahim in a bizarre turn of events. Suleiman also revealed that she was a friend to the cleric’s wife.Who owns the child?The said baby was the child of one Bashirat Jimoh, a pregnant woman and wife of Abdulfatai Jimoh of Gaa Akanbi area of Ilorin, Kwara State and she was only referred Capstone Hospital for a caesarian section after she developed complications at about 2 pm on October 31, 2018.What have Fatima Suleiman and Cleric, Salaudeen Ibrahim said?She says that with the relationship between her and he cleric’s wife, he asked her to help him get a baby’s placenta about two months ago, “The cleric asked me to get it (placenta). I succeeded in getting one just last week. It’s my first time of engaging in it. He has not given me any money yet, neither did he promise me a certain amount of money. He didn’t tell me what he wanted to use it for.”Ibrahim has however admitted that he wanted to use the placenta for money rituals he learned for anonymous persons but alleges that Suleiman approached him for a charm to help her get people’s favor in her daily life.He says, “She (Ibrahim) told me that she heard that people were using placenta to make charms to curry people’s favor. I said it was true. That was the last I heard from her until she brought the placenta.“After she handed over the placenta to me, my conscience rejected it though I inherited the charm-making practice, and I said I won’t do it. When I didn’t do it for myself, why for someone else?”ALSO READ: Woman has sex with mad man publicly in Aflao for money ritualPolice statementWhile parading the suspects alongside other arrested suspects, Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Bolaji Fafowora said the nursing attendant and the cleric were arrested for conspiracy to commit the offence of buying and selling/trafficking in human parts, and for being in possession of human parts.He says, “Upon a successful surgery carried out on Bashirat by Dr. Jamiu Mohammed on the same date, Mohammed handed over the placenta of the newborn baby to his hospital attendant, Fatima Suleiman of Agaka area of Ilorin, to give same to Abdulfatai Jimoh, the father of the new baby; but instead, the suspect, Suleiman, delivered the placenta to one Salahudeen Ibrahim to use for a charm, with the hope of getting monetary rewards from Ibrahim.“The suspects were arrested; they have confessed to the crime and will soon appear in court.”Amongst other things, he said that, miniature coffin, charms, an exercise book and photocopied sheet of paper for charms were recovered from the suspects.

“Open your computer when he wants to browse,” Pastor advises bride (Video)

0

The pastor was making references the couple on how important sex life is as they enter married life. Nigerian pastors are known for motivational speeches, cringe-worthy but humorous metaphors and intense analogies and they are at it again. This time, it is the usual pre-marriage counseling in churches at wedding sermons. While marriage isn’t always a bed of roses and newlyweds need as much guidance as they can get to ensure they know the realistic boundaries of marriage and the tips to keep the romance burning, some of the words of advice and guidance can be a little extreme.Nonetheless, the idea of counseling needs explicit tones at times, crazy metaphors also help. While these are all compelling arguments, Pulse will let you make your own judgment on this video posted by one Jefferson Uwoghiren on his Facebook page yesterday, November 8, 2018.In the video, a female Pastor was delivering a sermon at a wedding ceremony on how to live during a marriage and especially on the necessity of a healthy sex life when she said, “Regular sex is another thing that is going to build your home, as from today I don’t want to hear I am tired. For the next one month, you should be firing every day. Look here my sister after food for a man is sex.“I am telling you the reality. I think he has paid your bride price, he is the owner of your body, and everything from your head to toe belongs to this man. So anything he wants to browse you have to open the computer.”ALSO READ: Igbo king denied entry into a plane for not removing his crown (Video)Watch the video here;  In the end, everybody will be alright.

Chinese company unlawfully sacks Nigerians for refusing to practice Buddhism

0

The company’s CEO brought a Buddha symbol to the office and forced everybody to bow to it, lest they risk a sack. Buddhism is one of the biggest religions in the modern world, practiced by millions of people outside of China. However, entrenched under Article 38 of the Constitution of The Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 is a freedom of thought, conscience and religion guaranteed to every Nigerian citizen as a Fundamental Human Right,never to be violated by anybody.BackgroundIt should definitely not be a Chinese person carrying on business in Nigeria, probably on an expatriate quota, with work and residence permit. This adds to the outrage of claims against Fanni Lijuan, a Chinese CEO of Chinese company, Yiwu Baolian Import and Export Company Limited on Irede Road, Abule Osun, in the Ojo Local Government Area of Lagos State who reportedly sacked her VERY NIGERIAN employees because they refused to bow to the Buddha. This seems very reminiscent of the actions of King Nebuchadnezzar who ordered the deaths of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego by flaming hot fire for refusing to bow to his idol.According to Punch Metro, one of the employees at the company, Olaniyi claims their boss doled out the “strange” instructions to convert them to Buddhism by force and two employees who refused had already been sacked. Punch Metro also learned that some employees had already started bowing to Buddha out of fear.Olaniyi says, “The issue is that Fanni Lijuan brought Buddhism to the office; she puts us in front of a projector that showed us how to practice Buddhism and we were asked to bow to the teacher. They also read some books to us, but before reading, we were asked to bow three times.“Employees who refused to bow have been sacked; in fact, last week Monday, they sacked two people and the company’s excuse was that it was restructuring and it did not need the affected workers’ services anymore. “The workers were sacked because they refused to bow down; and after the company sacked them, the management threatened other employees that if we did not bow to the teacher, we would be similarly sacked.”Sacked employees’ accountsOne of the sacked employees who asked to remain anonymous says, “Our madam started this Buddhism practice in the office last year; she started by giving us lectures and asked us to be taking notes. “We also listened to voices we didn’t know. Recently, she got to the stage of asking us to bow, but I refused. So, she gave me one month’s salary and sacked me and some others.“When they laid me off, I was not bothered because I am not ready to bow to anything other than God. Even if she didn’t sack me, I would have quit. But the danger is that some workers have already compromised; they have bowed because they don’t want to be sacked; and now, they are working in fear.“This is bad; we can’t be in our country and be treated like that. In Nigeria, nobody can force you to worship their gods. It is only in Nigeria that a foreigner will come to do something like that. The reason you still have some people in that company is that there are no jobs outside there; we are suffering.”Raphael Ewiri, another sacked employee says that he was sacked after he rejected any advances to convert him and charged the government to investigate the matter.The former storekeeper said, “Mrs. Fanni Lijuan told every one of us that there was a new way of showing humility according to the Chinese tradition and that we had to bow three times before and after lectures in appreciation of the Chinese sages that brought about the wisdom that had been in existence for 4,000 to 5,000 years. I felt like why should I bow three times before and after lectures?“She feels not bowing is a sign of pride; she called me to her office one day and asked why we were not bowing. She was trying to cajole me that it was not religious, but a sign of humility.“One day, Mrs. Lijuan brought me out in front of everybody; the auditor said we should all bow to the ancient, saying she was expecting me to bow. I didn’t because I never promised her that I would bow. So, when she took the first bow, she was surprised that I didn’t bow; she was very annoyed.”ALSO READ: Igbo king denied entry into a plane for not removing his crown (Video)Lijuan’s testimonyPunch Metro visited Fanni Lijuan, the Chinese CEO of Chinese company, Yiwu Baolian Import and Export Company Limited on Irede Road, Abule Osun, in the Ojo Local Government Area of Lagos State, but she denied Buddhism in the company as a forced standard, but did admit that she wanted her employees to bow to show humility as they were arrogant.Lijuan said, “I never introduced Buddhism; they are just lying. What I observed is that some of the workers are very arrogant; even their body language shows that they are not respectful. So, we are learning some ways of living; humility and respect; and what I want them to do is a sign of humility — bow your body and stop being arrogant.“I did not sack anyone because they did not bow; it is totally wrong. I never told anyone to leave Christianity or Islam to practice any other religion. We have Christians and Muslims in the company; I am a Buddhist and I want to create harmony among the different religions; that’s what I want to do in this company.”Potential Implication of the matterEven though you pay a people’s bills, you have no right to force them to go against things they believe in to suit your own beliefs; that is indentured servitude or at worst, slavery. If you do so, you are also committing an offence that could be enforced by the Fundamental Rights (Enforcement Procedure) Rules of 2009. Have we forgotten the concept of free will? A Buddha is the symbol of Buddhism that worshippers bow before as their sign of submission, worship or prayer. Buddhism on its own however encourages virtues and positivity, not exploitation and negativity or vices.

Alex is one of many struggling artists in Lagos city trying to break into the music industry and fight poverty. Lagos, the music capital of Afrobeats, is home to many starry-eyed hopefuls who believe that one day they will be music superstars as big as Davido or Wizkid. Outside the ever-busy Ikeja City Mall is Alex who is one of such hopefuls. On any given weekend, you can find him strumming the strings of his guitar at the entrance of the popular mall. He sings his heart out hoping to be noticed by one of the many mall goers. While holding on to his painted guitar, Alex speaks to Pulse about his dream and struggles. “I was born and brought up in Ajegunle, Lagos. I am a music artist. I do music professionally. I do this to look for an investor” says Alex on a Sunday evening.”I have been doing this for like 3-4 years” he further says. Some days Alex goes home with N2,000-4000 “depending on God.” On some other days, he only makes N200. Alex’s interest in music started when he was in Junior Secondary School, about 14 years ago. His passion all these years is strong despite the numerous challenges.”I believe the person will come someday. I can’t meet the person at my house” says Alex. He hopes to meet an investor who will fund his music ambition.  Till then he keeps on playing to foot his bills and to pay his house rent. “I came late today. I should have been here since morning but it’s because of the recent challenges of paying bills” explains Alex, “I just got evicted from my house today. If I don’t pay the landlord I cannot come into the house.” Today he has to make some money to pay his landlord a percentage of his rent. At the time of the interview (5 pm), the hat which he uses to collect money was empty.  Alex is also unemployed. “I used to work in a factory but they sacked everybody about 5 months ago” he states. Tomorrow, he says he would go and look for a job but now he is preoccupied with singing and playing the guitar hoping to get enough cash to sleep in his room.

Nigerian Doctor saves a baby with improvised incubator after beating lassa fever

0

The baby was born premature and needed an incubator to survive, but the Nnamdi Azikiwe Teaching Hospital didn’t have one, so he improvised. Premature babies need intense and meticulous care to survive as no mother deserves to see a kid she hopes would leave die out before her eyes.One important thing these babies need is an incubator. This device helps preserve microbiological structures and cell structures. These premature babies are not fully formed, so various parts of their bodies are either non-existent or malformed/underdeveloped. This incubator is usually a transparent glass-like tube structure that is built to limit the rate of contamination and help these babies develop the things they couldn’t develop while in the womb.  These parts are things malformed parts are pigmentation of skin, immune system, the brain, nervous system or cell structures.

Nigerian Doctor saves a baby with improvised incubator after beating lassa fever

The baby was born premature and needed an incubator to survive, but the Nnamdi Azikiwe Teaching Hospital didn’t have one, so he improvised. Premature babies need intense and meticulous care to survive as no mother deserves to see a kid she hopes would leave die out before her eyes.One important thing these babies need is an incubator. This device helps preserve microbiological structures and cell structures. These premature babies are not fully formed, so various parts of their bodies are either non-existent or malformed/underdeveloped. This incubator is usually a transparent glass-like tube structure that is built to limit the rate of contamination and help these babies develop the things they couldn’t develop while in the womb.  These parts are things malformed parts are pigmentation of skin, immune system, the brain, nervous system or cell structures.

He was soon slipped into a coma and there he remained for the next 12 years.Then a miracle happened; his mother caught him smiling passionately at her on a blessed day in late October 2018. There and then, it became evident that he had regained consciousness. Through the coma though, one factor was common, his now 75-year old mother, Wei Mingying. She spent every waking moment and nighttime beside him, keeping the faith, never losing hope of his return to health. According to the Daily Mail, through the 12 years, she spent all her savings and acquired debt of 120,000 yuan (£13,000). She even got so poor at some point, she reportedly barely ate through one testing month. But here she is, caring little for those memories, her prayers have been answered; her son lives.For perspective, think of where you were in 2006, dear reader, to understand the extent of this miracle.ALSO READ: 13-yr-old boy tortures disabled 78-yr-old woman, cuts off her breasts and stabs her 60 times in face and body to steal £2Through the time her son was in a coma, Ms. Mingying basically had one routine; her day starts at 5 am, she then proceeds to clean her son, take care of his toilet needs, clean his face and feed him. She also massages him and repositions his body, and it took over her life but she never complained.She told Beijing News that, “There was a time when I wouldn’t eat for an entire month because we were so poor. My mouth, my tongue was all dry. I would just drink water.’ The frail mother lost 20kg (44lbs) over the years and now only weighs 30kg (66lbs).” Though Wang is still unable to walk or talk, he now hears his mother and smiles. For Wei, she just says, “I am just overjoyed. I hope he will make a full recovery. I will never give up on him. I hope he can call me “mum” again one day.”Wei’s story is really touching and social media is celebrating her and her joy.
