Delectable Nigerian sex worker in Dubai jumped to her death

A Nigerian commercial sex worker who was based in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates has reportedly lost her life after she jumped from a four-storey building to avoid being arrested by the police.

According to a Nigerian who lives and work in Dubai who sent the story to Pulse, the lady who was only known as Sophia, is said to be from Edo State and with other ladies, had been selling herself for money in that country.

The Nigerian narrated that Sophia who lived without papers decided to jump from her apartment when the police went to arrest her and others following a tip-off.

He added that her remains have been deposited in a mortuary as no one knew exactly where she came from and no links to her relatives whatsoever have been established.

This is what he sent to Pulse:
“To who it may concern, I am a Nigerian living and working in Dubai. I have to share this story on Pulse in case anyone knows this lady. There is this lady called Sophia but no one knows her real name or her surname.

She works as a prostitute here in Dubai and does not have any papers. She lived in Al-Baraha area in Deira, Dubai. No one knows her details though she told people she is from Edo State but we do not know her real hometown or her family members.

She and other ladies are into prostitution and they live together. One day, the police went to the apartment to arrest them and instead of waiting for the police, Sophia jumped through the window from the 4th floor and died instantly.

Her remains have been deposited at the mortuary. So if anyone you can do something to make her family and friends knows about this, we will appreciate it.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has identified Mrs Folashade Oke, the wife of the suspended NIA’s Director-General, Mr Ayo Oke as the owner of the N13bn seized from a flat in Ikoyi area of Lagos State.

Counsel to the EFCC, Rotimi Oyedepo, while speaking to a Federal High Court holding proceedings Lagos said the woman made a deposit of $1,658m for the purchase of the flat between August 25 and September 3, 2015.

Dogara hails Buhari over the release of 82 Chibok girls

Following the release of 82 Chibok girls, the House of Rep Speaker, Hon. Yakubu Dogara has expressed his delight and commended the administration of President Muhammad Buhari. He described the achievement as heartening and delightful.

“Last month, the House of Representatives adopted a motion, urging the Executive to expedite negotiation for the release of the schoolgirls who remained in captivity, and the news of the release of 82 Chibok girls is delightful, to say the least.

“President Buhari has further proven that he is a man of his words, as he could have used the initial inaction by the previous administration as an excuse to not take action, but he didn’t.

“It has been said in many quarters that true leadership is defined not by apportioning blame, but by solving challenges irrespective of their genesis, and the President deserves all commendation for this feat.

“It is extremely gladdening that these 82 girls will finally be reunited with their families.

“It is my ardent hope that they get the required medical attention, and that the other girls and all others who remained in captivity are released soon,” Dogara said.

TRUE PROSPERITY COMES FROM KNOWING WHO YOU ARE

This is a guest writer post

Whether you acknowledge it or not, everything you do in life is determined by your beliefs. The way you see life is predicated on the silent scripts that are running in your mind. For instance, if you are always thinking that life is tough, it is because that is the way life has been presented to you. Continue reading TRUE PROSPERITY COMES FROM KNOWING WHO YOU ARE

Politics as a tool for both destruction and re-building

Politicis is known as an activity associated or related with the running of government or an organization. Wikipedia defines it as the process of making decisions applying to all members of each group. More narrowly, it refers to achieving and exercising positions of governance — organized control over a human community, particularly a state.

Religion as a destructive tool in the society

This is a guest writer post. Insightful.

 

Religion is uniquely armored against anything that might stop it from spinning into extreme absurdity.

So what is it about religion that is so harmful? I could make a long case about its destructive elements of plenty institutions, education, medicine.
Why is religion special and troubling?
What makes it different from any other ideology system of morality, community. Continue reading Religion as a destructive tool in the society

Can you detach yourself from your past mistakes and move on?

A young man my age recounted his ordeal. “I made some terrible mistakes in the past that I wish I never made them. I look back in time and I hate myself for some of the mistakes. I cannot even let people know some of it.” He lamented. Continue reading Can you detach yourself from your past mistakes and move on?

Four cardinal ways to achieve one’s goal

A goal is a result or a set objective that one is attempting to achieve. It is something all of us have decided to set for ourselves to achieve. The goal of a football match is to win the match for the attainment of a trophy or a glory. To most of us, the goal we set is not the end in itself but a means to an end. Continue reading Four cardinal ways to achieve one’s goal

Four ingredients of a fulfilled life

The purposes of life are many but they can be summed up in a phrase; a fulfilled life.

No one should live this life without leaving a mark behind for posterity to benefit from, we should not live our life like a snake on the rock that leaves no mark behind. It just passes by and whoever passes the same route wouldn’t have known that a snake just plied the route. The same thing the way we must live our life. Continue reading Four ingredients of a fulfilled life

Indecision: a key element to a thwarted future

Indecision is the opposite of decision. And indecision is a decision. When one decided to be indecisive in making up his or her mind on a particular matter, it is a decision. It means the person has decided to be indecisive. There is no such thing as indecision in the real sense of it but for the sake of highlighting its danger, I’ve given it a life in order to strip it of the very life. Continue reading Indecision: a key element to a thwarted future

The culture of savings

Saving is something, usually money that is being set aside for a future purpose. The future is the time many people plan to retire and are already making plans not to be financially stranded then. And one of the ways known to many people to make plans for the future is saving. It is a tradition that we all need to adopt to avoid financial embarrassment. Continue reading The culture of savings

They do not want him to organise a protest against the direction of Nigeria under President Buhari’s supervision. Continue reading Professor Pius Adesanmi lends his voice to 2face’s planned protest

Inaugural address: Trump’s full speech

Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and people of the world: Thank you.
We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people.
Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come.
We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.
Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent.
Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another — but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.
For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished — but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered — but the jobs left, and the factories closed.
The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
That all changes — starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.
It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country.
What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.
Everyone is listening to you now.
You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before. At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.
Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves. These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.
But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.
This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.
We are one nation — and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny.
The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.
For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military; we’ve defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own; and spent trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.
We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, and confidence of our country has disappeared over the horizon.
One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions upon millions of American workers left behind.
The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world.
But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future. We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power.
From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.
From this moment on, it’s going to be America First.
Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.
I will fight for you with every breath in my body — and I will never, ever let you down.
America will start winning again, winning like never before.
We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.
We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation.
We will get our people off of welfare and back to work — rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.
We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and hire American.
We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world — but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.
We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow.
We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones — and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.
At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.
When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice. The Bible tells us, “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.”
We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity.
When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.
There should be no fear — we are protected, and we will always be protected.
We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we are protected by God.
Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger.
In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving.
We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action — constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.
The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.
Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America.
We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.
We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.
A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal our divisions.
It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.
And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty Creator.
So to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, and from ocean to ocean, hear these words:
You will never be ignored again.
Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.
Together, We will make America strong again.
We will make wealthy again.
We will make America proud again.
We will make America safe again.
And yes, together, we will make America great again. Thank you. God bless you. And God bless America.

Vanity

Committed to mother earth

An unfathomable saga in people’s heart

No one knows what I’m driving at

Nothing seems irrelevant again including your choicest hat

It’s a precis of our sojourn here on earth

A chronicle of our short-lived life

It either leaves an imprint behind

Or a secret beside

It becomes a crossroad of automatic indecision

And a bye-pass of reflexive teleguide

To little details, pay attention

For your mistakes, make corrections

For your sins, adopt confession

To double standard, a quick separation

To our responsibility, appropriation

Nothing lasts longer

Nothing grows stronger

Boxers may grow bigger

Ritualists may grow richer

Junk eaters may grow fatter

And contempt and malice may further linger

Only God’s grace lasts longer and forever.

Crass indifference to people’s plight

Our wealth subjected to capital flight

Atrocious disposition to people’s heart-borne agitation

Enactment of unfavorable and diabolical laws to downplay the people’s psyche

Without a recourse, however swift, to posterity

Except their own prosperity.

But it’s an unknown and disguised invitation to uncoveted adversity.

A cankerworm of animosity has crept into the people’s heart

Wishing the author of their adversity an untold hardship

Their lives have been stripped of their sanctity

And this causes great annoyance

All the people need is an assurance

Not a fake insurance

But the display of supercilious affectation of superiority

And their condescending disposition as well as mania for fleeting wealth have blinded their foresight

And beclouded their sense of reasoning

A sheer advertisement of incurable monomania – of rapacity has left thousands dejected and despondent

A wave of insecurity is blowing every glimmer of hope away

Seated in the dark recesses of the heart of the privileged few is an unjustified, unjustifiable and unfounded animosity and rivalry with no opposition

They flex their muscles against imaginary opposition

They adopt the instrumentality of wealth

To deprive others of their peace and health

Oh! Alas! Overnight, away it went and melts

It melts and went away to the land of no return

It took a flight to the kingdom of permanence

A mask of shame

A guise of ignominy

A load of comeuppance

A truckload of Waterloo

A wave of untold nemesis

A pang of pain and migraine

Came upon them and took abode with them

Broke their hearts

Scaled over their walls of defense

Invaded their security apparatchik

Rendered their conspiracies useless

Voided inimical deliberations to mankind’s existence

A multiple fold of reaped consequences like these

Who can bear?

And why would they resort to suicidal thoughts?

And why would the thoughts be turned to practicals?

Committed to mother earth

And the people shouted for joy

And their kinsmen and cronies deserted them.
