The National Judicial Council, NJC, has suspended the seven senior judges arrested in October by the State Security Service (SSS) for alleged monumental corruption.

NJC initially refused to suspend the judges despite pressure, saying the allegations against them had not been substantiated. It later said the judges had voluntarily stepped down from court sittings.

Their suspension came after the council’s 7th meeting between yesterday and today.

A communique issued at the end of the meeting, and signed by Director of Information, Soji Oye, said the decision was taken to avoid allowing persons under investigation to partake in presiding over judicial matters at the same time.

“Council also decided that Judicial Officers shall not be standing trial for alleged corruption related offences and be performing judicial functions at the same time.

“Council however decided that it will ensure that Judicial Officers who are being investigated for alleged high profile criminal offences do not perform judicial functions until their cases are concluded,” the communique said.

She has asked for divorce and he beats the hell out of her for bringing it up, because it'll dent the image he has made society believe of him, she's currently under lock and keys and he's not letting her go out.
She sent out an SOS and has asked that her story be made public.
He's very influential with the police force so it's almost impossible to rely on them. He constantly threatens to kill her or take away her kids if she sneaks away.
She has tried to leave many times but security is tight.
She's terrified of him and is a shadow of herself but after years of domestic violence she has become bold enough to go public about it. 
If nothing is done, God forbid her corpse is the next we'll see!
This isn't the first, second or third time, it has been happening and she's had so many hospital visits to treat the injuries inflicted on her by him.
Chikwe Udensi is a womaniser, a violent abuser, arrogant and almost heartless.
I'm calling on human rights activists, lawyers and just anyone that can help fight free this woman, No one deserves to die in marriage NOBODY!
Please share till this goes viral, Chidinma is asking that this be made public before she's beaten to death.
PLS PLS share as if she's your sister, niece, daughter, sibling till help comes.

Wow! A team of 50 Kenyan doctors successfully separate conjoined twins ...photo

Doctors at the Kenyatta Hospital on Wednesday morning November 3rd, successfully separated conjoined twins in the first ever surgery of its kind on the continent.

A team of 50 medical specialists separated the twin girls, Favour and Blessing, whose lower backs were fused, in an operation that took 23 hours and concluded at 5am on Wednesday morning after a two year hospital stay.
The twins are currently admitted in the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital but KNH Acting Chief Executive Officer Thomas Mutie, told reporters that they are expected to make a full recovery.
“It is the first time in Sub-Saharan Africa, outside South Africa where this kind of operation has been done successfully. So this fete is a statement to the world ‘in KNH and in Kenya, we can do what other people can do."
The girls have been admitted to the hospital for the last two years since their birth in late 2014. The doctors however opted to given the children time to grow before putting them under the knife to allow them time for preparation and to allow the girls to grow in strength as explained by doctor Mutie.
"These particular ones were joined in the sacro area, in the bottom area, and they had to be given food to grow, to have enough muscles for that separation to occur. So this day marks the culmination of those two years of preparation and I’m humbled by the importance and enormity of this event."
Below is a report posted by the Hospital on its official Facebook page: 
"On 1st November 2016, the Kenyatta National Hospital and School of Health Sciences - University of Nairobi medical team successfully separated the conjoined twins Blessing and Favour. The separation surgery of the Sacrophagus twins who were joined at the lower back took 23 hours. The twins have been in KNH since 5th September 2014 following their referral from St. Theresa Hospital, Kiirua in Meru County.
The multidisciplinary team of over fifty (50) medical specialists including paediatric surgeons, neurosurgeons, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anesthetists and nursing teams performed the 23 hour long highly delicate surgery on 1st November 2016 at the KNH Main Theatres leading to the successful separation of the twins. The surgery ended 2nd November, 2016 at 5:00am.
The children have been admitted in the Specialized Surgical Paediatric Ward for over two years to allow development of key organs and also enable them gain appropriate muscles to withstand the surgery. The conjoined twin girls who were born on 4th September 2014 were joined at the sacral region of the lower spinal cord. 
Surgery of this nature usually required planning and regular consultation by a multi-disciplinary team of KNH and School of Health Sciences, UON specialists to exchange ideas on how best to perform the procedure while minimizing risk of either paralysis or neural damage. 
Having been convinced that time was appropriate, the team set on the surgery on 1st November 2016, at 6.00am and after 23 long hours in theatre, they emerged with the two separate children who are currently admitted in the ICU. The children are stable, receiving specialized care and we are monitoring progress. We are confident that they will fully recovery and live normal independent lives to adulthood.
We thank God for this great milestone and celebrate the team for the job well done. It has taken not only skills but patience, commitment and self confidence to bring this joy to the mother, relatives, friends and honor to our country for the first ever sarcophagus surgery in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Successful surgery is a testimony that the country is endowed with medical specialists who can handle complicated human health challenges"

Court convicts firms for laundering Patience Jonathan’s $15m

Image result for images of patience jonathan

A Federal High Court in Lagos on Wednesday convicted four companies of laundering $15.5million kept in their accounts with Skye Bank.

The companies – Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited; Seagate Property Development & Investment Co. Limited; Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited and Avalon Global Property Development Company Limited – are linked with a former Special Adviser on Domestic Affairs to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Waripamo-Owei Dudafa.

The EFCC had in August frozen the accounts of the four companies and seized the $15million in the course of probing Dudafa for money laundering.

But the wife of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience, came out and sued EFCC and Skye Bank, claiming ownership of the $15.5million.

On Wednesday, Justice Babs Kuewumi convicted the four companies of laundering the $15.5m.

The firms had on September 15, pleaded guilty to laundering the money when they were arraigned by EFCC along with Dudafa, a lawyer, Amajuoyi Briggs; and a banker, Adedamola Bolodeoku.

But Dudafa, Briggs and Bolodeoku pleaded not guilty.

Based on the guilty plea of the companies, the EFCC prosecutor, Mr. Rotimi Oyedepo, reviewed the facts of the case and told the court how the companies laundered the money.

Mr. Oyedepo told the judge that the money was stolen from the State House, Abuja.

He said, “The EFCC received an intelligence report showing vividly that the fourth to seventh defendants retained proceeds of crime. Our investigations showed that Festus Iyoha admitted receiving the funds from the first defendant (Dudafa). Iyoha is a domestic staff at the State House.

“He admitted that funds credited into the accounts were given to him from the State House.”

Oyedepo said Iyoha paid $3,096,377.38 into Pluto’s account; $3,410,534.71 into Seagate’s account; $3,765,711.87 into Trans Oceans’ account; and $250,000 into Avalon Global’s accout.

He said the accounts of the companies were domiciled in Skye Bank.

Justice Kuewumi admitted the accounts statements in evidence. He also admitted their mandate cards, certificates of incorporation and statements made to the EFCC by the companies’ representatives.

While convicting the companies of money laundering, the judge said he was satisfied that the EFCC had proven its case beyond reasonable doubt.

Police to arraign man who attempted suicide twice

A driver, Jacob Elegbede, who attempted to hang himself behind a primary school in Zanda, a suburb of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, has blamed spiritual forces, saying  he did not know what came over him.

The 48-year old father of one stated that he was not himself when he climbed a tree in an attempt to commit suicide in a nearby bush, noting that he simply found himself on the tree along with the rope he wanted to use to kill himself.

Elegbede, who worked with a construction company in Abuja, twice attempted to hang himself on Saturday and Sunday, prompting his neighbours to alert policemen, who arrested him.

Before the suicide attempt, he had written a note in which took responsibility for the planned crime and also asked for forgiveness from his family and neighbours.

Elegbede, who hails from Badagry, Lagos, also listed the names of his creditors whom he owed various amounts, craving their forgiveness.

The suspect, in an interview with Punch Metro at the FCT Police Command, Abuja, on Wednesday, explained that his problem began about 18 months ago, when he started suffering from insomnia.

He said his situation got worse when he started having strange dreams and suffering from hot flashes in his head and chest.

He said, “I also started having strange dreams in which I find myself having intercourse with strange women and even animals.

“I worship at the Mountain of Fire and Miracle church in Abuja, but I couldn’t go for prayers or deliverance because I work from Monday to Sunday and there was no time for any other thing. I believe my problem is spiritual because I can’t even explain how I found myself on the tree with a rope to hang myself.”

Asked about the suicide note that was recovered by the police, Elegbede, stated that he could not remember writing the said letter because he had no pen or paper in his room.

“I strongly believe some spiritual forces were behind my problem because while I was in the cell last Saturday, I had a wet dream in which a dog was licking my private parts,” he said.

The FCT Commissioner of Police, Muhammed Mustafa, said the suspect would be arraigned in court after investigation, adding that attempted suicide was a criminal offence.

Zimbabwean man forces wife to sleep with stranger for $3000

A Zimbabwean woman, Junior Phiri, has accused her husband, Douglas Hazvinei Gondo, of forcing her into prostitution to enable him raise funds for his business. Phiri said her husband asked her to have sex with a stranger so that he would claim compensation in the sum of $3000.
“This man is saying that I am a prostitute yet he is the one who pleaded with me to have s*x with a certain man so that he would go and claim money from him to start a business.
I am shocked that now he is saying I am a prostitute. He has not been taking care of the family. I am the one who has been doing everything for the children. I used to be a cross border trader but not anymore. In fact I have told him a number of times that I am no longer interested in the marriage but he keeps forcing me to love him...”
Phiri went on to say that Douglas had dragged her to the maintenance court as a way of disgracing her after she had reported him to the police for assault

“He brought me to court as a way of trying to shame me but the truth of the matter is that I am the one who takes care of the children. He does not buy anything for anyone. Our eldest child is now selling buckets in Mbare because their father is failing to take care of his family. My children have asked me to move out with them because they see how worthless their father is,” said Junior.
Meanwhile, Douglas has maintained that his wife is a prostitute who was shameless enough to justify her actions, saying she needed the money for their children’s welfare: 

“This woman who is my wife is a prostitute. She has so many lovers and the evidence is in her phone which I confiscated. “She uses her job as a cover for her promiscuous behaviour. She once lied that she was going out of the country for work and she went to sleep with one of her lovers. She says she has to fend for the children and her parents so she has no other choice but to be a prostitute. One of her lovers is a doctor. I asked her to stop paying for the children’s school fees or to do anything for them because I wanted her to stop prostituting but now because she has failed to listen to me I want her to maintain the children and I.”
Douglas who hauled his wife to the maintenance court in Zimbabwe, is claiming $150 for their three children’s upkeep and $50 for his own upkeep: 

“I want her to take care of the children and I, and I know that she can afford to do so because she is a cross border trader who is also a hairdresser. She earns $800 per month. She has no other children and no other husband except for her boyfriends only. I am a vendor and I get about $100 a month. My wife is capable of paying the said amount because she has the money,” Douglas said.
Presiding magistrate Sharon Rakafa postponed the matter to today for ruling.

Meet this Indian carpenter born with 28 fingers and toes ...photo

43-year-old Suthar, from Himmatnagar, Gujarat, in Western India, is recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records as the only person with more digits than anyone else on earth.
Suthar has seven fingers on each hand and seven toes on each foot, and has become some sort of celebrity as people come from far and wide along with their children to see the ‘man with seven fingers’, reports MailOnline.

‘Because of my extra fingers, people here treat me as a celebrity. They come to see me and the attention makes me feel special. Children laugh when they see me doing funny tricks with my fingers. The expression on their face when they see my toes is priceless. It is because of my fingers that I have become a famous man. I consider my extra fingers and toes definitely are lucky for me and I do not want to cut them off.’
Suthar who suffers from a condition called Polydactylism, says he has to be extra careful when at work so as not to slice off one of his extra digits.
‘The extra fingers and toes certainly trouble me at times. I am a carpenter and work mostly with saw and hammer. I have to always be careful to avoid the fingers.’

British Airways pilot suspended for allegedly taking cockpit sex selfies while flying at 38,000 feet ...photo

A British Airways pilot, Captain Colin Glover, 51 has been suspended by the Airline company after the Sun UK revealed photos showing him allegedly masturbating and reading pornographic magazines while piloting at 38,000 feet.

Captain Glover, who wore stockings in the photos while pleasuring himself in the Boeing 777 plane, has denied he's in the person in the photos pleasuring himself mid-flight.

In one of the photos, the pilot's leg are sprawled over the dashboard while the plane appears to be on autopilot with the co-pilot’s seat empty while in another, an airman spreads his stocking-clad legs over the joystick while revealing his naked self.
Another photo shows a porn magazine spread around the cockpit and judging from the serial numbers on the control panel  of the plane, it's easy to deduce that the pictures were taken aboard at least two separate British Airways planes.

Some airline experts suggest there's the possibility the photos where taken in a simulator plane not a plane carrying passengers.
Aircraft expert Chris Yates said to Sun UK:
“This is very dangerous if the plane is in mid-flight. “If you are flying, you can fly into serious turbulence. This person is in danger of losing his aircraft and his job.”XX But according to Chris,it was unlikely the pictures were taken on a simulator. Chris added: “You can tell by the lighting it is a plane. 
“There is also more going on in the control panels than on a ­simulator. It looks a live aircraft.”
