Breadseller, Olajumoke helps old woman whose home is to be demolished

An old woman, Madam Emily Oyedele, whose tear jerking reaction to the demolition of her house, went viral earlier this month, is finally getting some assistance.

Former Bread Seller turn model, Olajumoke Orisaguna has reached out to her and sorted her out. Speaking about the good act, Olajumoke said;

"My team found mama Emily Oyedele. @qtabyevents team embarked on a search today & eventually located her. She lives alone in a "face-me-I-face-you" and she has neighbors that assist her. They say she is 130yrs old, though she looks very old, we can not verify her age.

Mama Emily has no living child but has a grandson called Benjamin Oyedele who she was referring to in the viral video.

The residents of the area confirmed that they do not know exactly when the demolition will get to them but it has already commenced.

1) Rent a decent 1bedroom apartment for mama Emily,
2)Furnish the apartment quickly 3) Relocate her there before the demolition gets to her (we have just about two weeks)
4) Possibly get a little girl that can live with her to help her with cleaning, cooking e.t.cor find out if her son can live with her
5) Form a small community of 20people called "friends or Mama Emily"
6) Designate one person to visit her once weekly, spend time with her e.t.c
7) We will also try to assist her grandson to learn a trade & earn a living as that is the only way her Joy will be complete.

We will look into the possibility of helping other people in the community as we found another very old man that lives not far from Mama Emily whose house is also marked for demolition
The gentleman in brown shirt in the picture is her grandson Benjamin Oyedele. He was in our office yesterday and we realized that him and Mama's son had a building site before things went down & mama's died. The house needs plastering and roofing and fixing of toilets.

We visited the building site yesterday. We will like to help them complete that house so that mama can live with her grandson & great grand children for the rest of her life.

Omg! Nigerian man shot dead for resisting arrest in Indonesia

A suspected Nigerian drug smuggler was shot dead after resisting arrest in Tanah Tinggi, Central Jakarta on Wednesday, April 26.

Jakarta Police Chief Insp. Gen. M. Iriawan said the police shot Douglas Hope Onyebuchi, aka Kabaka, who was a suspect in a drug smuggling case in Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta.

The police, Iriawan said, coordinated with the Directorate General of Customs and Excise to track Onyebuchi and his Indonesian wife Yani Andriani, after being suspected of smuggling a package containing two kilograms of methamphetamine from Guangzhou, China.

“Some drugs were shipped from Guangzhou, disguised in pairs of sandals. We later followed the shipment to Jl. Cengkir Raya in Kelapa Gading,” said Iriawan.

The police said Andriani was seen watching the package be placed inside one of the rooms in the dorm house.

“We watched her for two days until we concluded that she was a suspect.”
The police proceeded to arrest Andriani. Further investigations led police to another location on Jl. Maladewa in Tanah Tinggi, where Kabaka was hiding.

"During his arrest, he fought back and tried to grab one of the officers’ guns. Therefore, we had no choice but to take him down"

The actress shared this powerful message on her IG page this morning. She wrote;

"Why are you always sad? 
You have money, not much but enough. 
You have food, whatever you want to eat.
You live in a house, it's small but it's yours. 

 You have clothes, so what if they aren't designer. 
You lost a loved one, we all did, but they wouldn't like to see you unhappy, the energy from their soul is still there, they live on in your heart. 
You are scared of death... Why? 
When it happens it happens, concern yourself with loving and living. 
Don't die having never lived. 
You don't get on well with your family... You will eventually, or you won't but your friends are the family you get to choose. So choose wisely 
You are trying to become more spiritual, but aren't sure where to start... Cleanse your body and mind of negative energy 1st,Pray for direction will help, so will eating healthy foods, stop taking poisons. 
A poisonous body is a poisonous mind. 
If you are single you are single for a reason, just as when you get into a relationship you will have your reasons. 
Remember your happiness starts with you. 
Not with your relationship.
Not with your friends. 
Not with your job. 
But with you. 
Things outside of you won't fix things on the inside 
You are loved, by others but not by yourself, start by loving yourself and be happy, because you are alive when many others died for the opportunity to live..."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has initiated a plan to assign unique 12-digit identification numbers to 88 million cattle in India by the end of 2017.
