Shocking! This man and his pregnant girlfriend are arrested for armed robbery.... photos

Things like this often happen when folks refuse to live right. A suspected robber who is pregnant is in police custody after she was caught together with her boyfriend in possession of a pistol.

The two were arrested on Thursday in a Nanyuki-bound commercial bus at a big terminus in Kenya, attempting to flee from the police.

The suspects Vanessa Wambui alias Tisho and Alex Mathenge were found in possession of a pistol with five rounds of ammunition recovered, with ten rounds spent in previous robberies.

News Hour reported that they were spotted at a different terminus in Nyeri town where they boarded a bus but later alighted leaving luggage behind after spotting police officers patrolling the area.

Police moved in on the suspects who have been on security watch list after police were alerted of a couple behaving suspiciously.

Witnesses say the two acted very suspiciously, the woman was carrying a leso full of clothes while the boyfriend kept alighting from the vehicle eyeing the surroundings.

“They picked the back seat then the woman sat on her handbag which is very unusual,” said a witness quoted by Nairobi News.

The area commander said the lady appears harmless but she's one of the most feared criminal around.

“She does not appear to be a criminal but she is one of the most feared. There is a likelihood that many more women have been inducted into criminal gangs since physical appearance does not give away a criminal easily,” he said.

Police in the area said the couple is linked to a series of robberies reported in the town.

Tragic! This girl dies in church after Prophet tried to use her to perform "miracle" photos

Wonders shall never end! Congregates of Mount Zion General Assembly went home with heads down last Sunday after a failed demonstration of power by the church pastor when a girl fainted after he put a heavy speaker on top of her, promising her that she would not feel pain.

Sadly, the lady has died from internal injuries caused to her lungs during the "miracle".

The Southern Daily reports that, Pastor Lethebo Rabalango [a young prophet] had organised a night of worship at his church in Polokwane where he was teaching about demonstration of power in which he emphasised that if Jesus walked on water, he too could do anything with faith.

It is on this point that he invited a girl from the praise team and asked her to lie down. He then ordered Ushers to carry a big speaker and put on her stomach saying the weight would not harm her. As if it was not enough, Pastor Lethabo climbed on top of the speaker, adding pressure to suffocate the girl who remained quite for she had already passed out.

After seating on top of the speaker which was still on the girl’s stomach for close 5 minutes, he got up and ordered removal of the speaker, but the girl could not rise because she had fainted. It took some elders giving her first aid treatment that she came back but complained of a broken rib.

She was then taken to hospital. But Pastor Lethabo blamed the girl and accused her of having little faith for she could not withstand a very simple task.

Pastor Lethabo's church is in South African, hence I couldn't confirm the authenticity of this report by Southern Daily, but in recent times some SA Pastors have been dishing out 'strange' miracles.

Graphic photos of clash between Hausa/Fulani and the Ibo community.. many burnt alive....photos

No fewer than seven persons were killed yesterday evening in Akokwa community in Ideato North council of Imo State, following a bloody clash between the Hausa/Fulani community and the indigenes.

Tragic! This 13yr old committed suicide after being bullied at school and writes a heartbreaking final note... photos

A New York teenager who took his own life after being mercilessly bullied by former friends has blamed his school for not helping him in a heartbreaking final note.

Daniel Fitzpatrick, 13, hanged himself in his family's attic in Staten Island, where he was found by one of his older sisters about 5:30pm on Thursday.

In a note, which was shared by a family friend on Facebook, the 13-year-old detailed how his treatment at Holy Angels Catholic Academy left him feeling utterly helpless.

'At first it was good. Lots of friends, good grades and a great life, but I moved and went back and it was different,' Daniel wrote.

'My old friends changed, they didn't talk to me, they didn't even like me.'

The 13-year-old then wrote about a fight he had with a student and former friend, which led to the other pupil being punished. His former friend blamed him for getting in trouble, something that only worsened the bullying.

'They continued, I gave up, the teachers either they didn't do anything! Not get them in trouble even though they did trouble, I got in trouble instead because [the student] was mad at me because he believed I failed him.

'I told all the teachers nothing except one… she was the nicest teacher ever she understood and did something but it didn't last long.

'I wanted to get out, I begged and I pleaded. Eventually I did, I failed but I didn't care. I was out that's all I wanted.' 

Daniel wrote his letter on June 30, as he desperately wanted to make sure he would be able to start new at another school, Brooklyn's Xaverian High School, in the fall, the New York Daily News reports.

His shattered mother, Maureen Fitzpatrick, said his son was let down by the school.

'Danny said that he was afraid of his teachers. He felt like the whole school knew what was going on and was laughing behind his back. They humiliated him,' she told the NYDN.

'My son shouldn't have to die to be heard. There's something wrong with the adults in authority positions when kids can't go to them for help.

'No parent is supposed to bury their child.'

Lobatan! Meet the girl who claims stripping off for men on the webcam saved her from Anorexia... photos

A webcam girl who strips off for online punters eight hours a day claims the career helped her overcome anorexia.

Standing at 5ft 3ins Jayme Jones went from 11-stone to just seven during her year-long battle with the eating disorder.

Such was the severity of her eating habits that she survived on fewer than 200 calories a day by eating just one tomato and tissue paper to fill her stomach. But in June 2015 she decided to try something new after struggling to pay her bills on a measly salary as a salesperson in a phone shop.

With friends who had contacts in the adult webcam industry, Jayme bought a HD camera and set up a studio in her spare room.

Since ditching a 9-5 job, Jayme, from London now earns around £52,000 a year and is constantly showered with gifts of shoes and clothes. Better yet, the new role has given her body confidence and helped her battle anorexia.

She gained back three stone over two years and now weighs a healthy 11st 4Ibs and wears a dress size 8-10. Jayme said: “Being a cam girl has helped me find my body confidence and overcome my eating disorder.

“Online I get showered in compliments, but in your day to day life that would never happen.”

Jayme, who says her boyfriend and parents support her career choice, said: “When I was anorexic I wanted to be a model, I was eating tissue paper, because it swells in your stomach and curbs your appetite.

“But since camming, I don’t mind extra weight. I feel sexy

Nollywood actress Omoni Oboli shared an amazing testimony via her Instagram page, revealing how God healed her son Gozi, when they discovered he had a lump in his breast. Sharing a video of him playing basketball energetically, Omoni wrote, 
"Watch out LeBron James, Gozi is coming for ya!  I have a testimony! I told God I will testify in church if he did it but I never did so here's me testifying to the whole world!  Some time ago, we discovered a lump in Gozi's breast.

I wasn't comfortable so we kept praying about it. We took communion and we just kept praying. He was always complaining about feeling weak and he would always take naps. I thought it was quite unusual because as mama boys, I know boys are always active so I kept praying. To cut a long story short, God has healed Gozi, lump is gone and he's more energized than he's ever been! He's running everyday, practicing his basket ball for hours! I just want to say THANK YOU LORD! Healing is the children's bread! May God bless our bread and water and take sickness out of our midst! Go Gozi! The world is at your feet!!! 😇😇😇 #IAmMamaGozi#GodOverAll #JehovaOverDo #FamilyOverEverything 

Photo of man caught with N9.8m fake currency and arrested by NDLEA...

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency in Kwara on Friday said it arrested Mohammed Adamu for possessing N9.8 million fake currency notes.

The NDLEA Commander in the state, Mr Apeh Reuben, who presented the suspect to newsmen in Ilorin said the fake currency were mainly N1,000 notes.

Reuben said Adamu concealed the fake notes in a carton of noodles wrapped with cello tape.

He said that the suspect was arrested by NDLEA Jebba Command while on transit to Kano on Aug. 9, 2016. The commander said that Adamu conspired with a yet-to-be-identified individual in Ilorin to carry out the act.

He said, “Investigation is in process aimed at arresting the accomplice,” adding that the agency was a alerting the public on the fake money in circulation.

“We just want to alert the public to be aware of such fake money because if this amount of money is allowed to be injected into the economy, it is very bad.

“A lay man can hardly identify that they are fake currency. These days we even have cases of people collecting money from ATM and still find fake currency in them,” he added.

The suspect, who spoke to newsmen in Hausa language, admitted that the fake currency was found on him.

Shocking! See the man who was drugged and dumped in Nigeria after spending two months in Swiss jail... photos

As he sat on the chair last Monday evening, Prince Ugochukwu brought out a white handkerchief from his pocket with his right hand, wiping off the small tear drops that clouded his red eyes.
If he had known, he wouldn’t have accepted his friend’s invitation to visit him in Switzerland. Ugochukwu said he would have stayed back in Madrid, Spain, where he worked and lived. He would have renewed his residence visa in Spain and become a citizen. Of course, that was his dream that has now been cut short brutally.
He had planned to spend just three days in Switzerland but that journey quickly turned out to be a nightmare, leading to his eventual deportation to Nigeria. He said he had visited Switzerland back in 2014 without any problem. But his second trip to the country was the beginning of his sad experience. They declared him an illegal immigrant.
The 35-year-old Ebonyi State indigene had been living and working in Madrid, Spain, since 2003. He visited Nigeria in September 2015 and left the Murtala Mohammed Airport happy and feeling great, only to return to the country like a destitute.
Ugochukwu cried briefly when he first met our correspondent, but he composed himself and told a story that left many questions than answers.
  “On September 9, few days after I got back to Spain, I bought a ticket with Swiss Air to visit my friend in Switzerland. We are close and I was free at work. So, I decided to go and spend three days with him. I left Madrid and arrived in Geneva, Switzerland later in the night of that day. On getting to the Geneva Airport, the immigration officials there checked my documents,” he said.
 But after checking all his documents, the officials said he would not be allowed into the country.
 He said, “I asked them what the reason was because I had all my documents intact. I have a residence visa in Spain and by European laws, I am permitted to visit any other European country and stay for three months, not to work, but to visit.
“I told them I was not coming to work, but to visit a friend for just three days. Meanwhile, I had an appointment to go for the renewal of my residence visa on October 5 because the one I was holding would expire on September 26, so I had planned not to stay for more than three days with my friend in Switzerland.
 “They said I had to go back to Spain. After much effort trying to explain, I stopped arguing with them. I asked them how soon they would allow me to go back to Spain and they said as soon as possible. I believed them — only to see them packing my luggage and collecting my Spanish residence visa. I also had my Nigerian passport, which would expire in January 2017. They collected everything; the documents, my tablet and phone and wristwatch. They made an entry for all of them and asked me to acknowledge them by signing, which I did. Then they asked me to wait.”
But later that night, rather than put him back on a flight to Spain, Ugochukwu said they transported him from Geneva Airport to a location in the city which he didn’t know. That night, he said they locked him in a confinement that had no windows.
He continued, “I was kept in there for three days without committing any criminal offence. I didn’t know why they did that to me. They didn’t allow me to communicate with anybody. I didn’t know when it was night or when it was day. On the third day, they brought me out and asked me to come and see one lady in an office.
“She was explaining something to me, but she was speaking in French. I told them I didn’t understand French and demanded they should bring someone who could speak English or Spanish which I understand.
“So they brought an old man who explained to me that they were setting me free on that day and that I was going back to Spain. The man told me that they said I shouldn’t come back to their country till December 17. I was at least happy. They asked me to sign a statement to that effect and I did so. After signing the paper, I asked them how soon I was going to be taken to the airport and they said a vehicle would be coming to pick me up later.”
 The vehicle indeed came, only to carry him to another detention facility in a place called Sion. In that place, another suffering began for him.
But Ugochukwu did not imagine what would happen later.
He said he spent two months and three weeks in that facility without any explanation.
 He said, “I had no access to lawyer and no medical facility. I was there when my Spanish residence visa expired. All through the period, I kept asking them when I was going back to Spain. I told them I was working in Spain and I had two kids and dependants. ‘You couldn’t just keep me here,’ I told them. They refused to listen. When I was there, my health condition started deteriorating because of the poor water they gave me. There were rashes all over my body. The pain was severe. At nights, I couldn’t sleep because I was feverish. I complained to them and demanded they should take money from my wallet and buy me bottled water. I also demanded they should take me to the hospital. All these fell on their deaf ears.
 “They said they were going to talk to their director; they were just lying. Instead of taking me to the hospital, they gave me paracetamol tablets which I took for one month and 10 days. I requested that they should allow me see the Nigerian Consulate in Geneva because I just couldn’t understand my situation. They didn’t take me to the consulate. I was kept in that confinement till November 19.”
Around 1am on November 29, 2015, Saturday PUNCH learnt that while he was sleeping, four hefty men with masks entered his room. Before he could know what was happening, they had pinned him on the floor and handcuffed him.
 Ugochukwu said the unknown men sprayed some kind of gas on him, which made him lose consciousness. By the time he regained consciousness, he found himself inside an aircraft, his hands and legs tied to the seat with chains.
 He said, “I looked around and saw other passengers. They were not chained like me. A security official sat beside me. I asked him where he was taking me to. He said we were going to Nigeria. I remember the plane got to Italy first, and from there it landed in Greece. As passengers were disembarking from the plane, others were embarking. I was the only one who couldn’t move. Then we got to Nigeria. Before we landed, the security man removed my chains and when we got to the Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos, I demanded to speak to Nigerian immigration officials. I was taken to an immigration officer who was the head of the department there. I told him I was not an illegal immigrant as the people who brought me back claimed. I told him I had been living in Spain since 2003 and I even had permanent residence visa, which I had been using for 10 years. If I had renewed it on October 5, I would have become a citizen of the country.
“I told him I worked in a factory which produces carts used at shopping malls. I had also worked at construction sites, bakeries and others. I asked the immigration officer to ask the man who brought me to release my documents and other items. He said I should wait and that he would get back to me. I waited, only for him to tell me I should come back two days later, on a Monday. When I got there, I was given my documents, only to realise my Spanish visa, my bank card and hospital card were not included. The immigration officer said that was all they gave him.”
Since then, Ugochukwu had been traumatised, brought back to Nigeria empty, and has been enduring the shame any other person who were in his shoes would have felt. All his efforts to seek redress to his “unjust” treatment have not yielded any fruit.
“I went to the departure hall at the airport to meet some officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I explained everything to them and they asked me to produce copies of all necessary papers, including the ticket I bought to go to Switzerland. They said they would look into it for me. They have yet to do that up till now,” he said, showing the said documents to our correspondent.
He said, “Since January 2016, my children have not been going to school. I have no money. I am stranded in my own country. I had to relocate my family to my village in Ebonyi State. I have been squatting with friends in Lagos and it’s not easy. If I had renewed my visa, my family would have been able to join me in Spain. I wasn’t married when I first got the residence visa, but on expiration of the former visa and application for a new one, I would have indicated I am married and they would join me. But look at what has happened to me.
 “Right now, I walk around like a lunatic, which I’m not. Everything I have — my money and other things — is in Spain. I have gone to the Spanish Consulate in Lagos. I presented all my documents for verification, but their argument is that they wouldn’t be able to do anything for me because they were not the one who brought me back to Nigeria, but Switzerland. They said they don’t have any hand in this matter. Why should Switzerland do this to me? I am a confused man right now.
“In 2014, I lost my job and went to Switzerland to solicit for social benefits, which is not a crime. After five months of application, they denied me, saying that I could only apply for that in Spain where I came from. I didn’t argue with them. I left the country. I didn’t fight with anyone and I have never been a terrorist suspect.
“It was the second time of visiting the country and they did this to me. I want them to tell me what my offence is. My life has turned upside down. Since December 2015, I don’t have any means of income and I have not been feeding my family. Why should I be treated this way? I have not been able to overcome this shock.”
Meanwhile, a human rights activist and constitutional lawyer, Evans Ufeli, who has taken up Ugochukwu’s case, said it was wrong for the Swiss authorities to have detained his client without any explanation to him.
 He said, “This level of human right violation is gravely repulsive. This horrific case must not go forgotten. There is no country in the world where a legal immigrant will be wrongfully detained for up to two months without being charged to court or allowed access to a lawyer.
“This is a case of gross infringement of our client’s fundamental right and we hereby call on all the relevant authorities through this medium — the Presidency, the United Nations Human Rights Council, the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Nigerian Immigration Service and Switzerland High Commission in Nigeria to come to the  rescue of this young man whose apartment is still in Spain but cannot return because the Swiss immigration authorities are still with his Spanish residence permit and vital travel documents.
“The Swiss government through its High Commission in Nigeria should issue a re-entry visa to our client forthwith, to enable him to find his way back to his abode in Spain. The Swiss citizens in Nigeria are not treated this way here. We cannot allow the kind of abuse to go unchecked in our land. Our client deserves some level of dignity as a human being.”
When contacted on Friday, an official of the Switzerland Embassy in Abuja, Andreas Jolanda, told our correspondent on the phone that Ugochukwu’s case would be investigated.
The spokesperson for the Nigeria Immigration Service, Mr. Ekpedeme King, said something might be “fishy”about Ugochukwu’s story, and promising to look into the matter.
“It might be that his documents are irregular or an illegal immigration issue,” he said.

OMG! Pope visits 7 Ex Nigerian prostitutes in Italy... photos

Pope Francis on Friday made a surprise visit to a Rome safe house in Italy where a Catholic charity is protecting women freed from forced prostitution.
There, the pope met 20 ex-prostitutes from Romania, Albania, Nigeria, Tunisia, Ukraine and Italy, encouraging them to be strong as they start new lives, a Vatican official told Reuters.
Seven of the women are from Nigeria. A statement from the Vatican said the pope made the visit to the Pope John XXIII Community, started by an Italian priest to help free women from their pimps in order to “appeal to consciences to fight human trafficking.”
Under his papacy, the Vatican has hosted series of conferences bringing together international police organisations, legislators and religious groups to find ways to work together to fight human trafficking and modern slavery.
