Nigerian Police command two thieves to dance with their stolen goats (Video)

The suspects can be seen with the video tied around their necks while they do some nervous dance movements. It’s close to Christmas season and it was inevitable that we would start seeing crazy theft cases. Yesterday, Pulse reported the how a woman stole stockfish at Ajah market and started begging after she was caught. She even admitted to letting Allah down.Today, it is the Nigerian Police having a crazy day with two suspected goat thieves in an unknown Nigerian location. What they did was command the two men to dance with the two goats they allegedly stole, tied around their necks — one goat for each suspect .In the video posted on Instablog9ja on Friday, November 9, 2018, some of the onlookers covered the suspects as they danced nervously in a public place. It was obvious that the Policemen were aiming to disgrace both men who can be seen shirtless in the video. They both had jean trousers on though, and one of them even wore a chain around his neck.Watch the video here; ALSO READ: Woman begs after being caught stealing stock fish in Ajah (video)You could also watch an Igbo chief get ejected from a plane here.

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

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)

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

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.

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.
