See How Much National Assembly Members Are Spending On Abuja Flats

Image
Nigerian lawmakers are currently pushing for an accommodation provision that will ease the financial burden in securing houses for themselves.

Members of the National Assembly are currently subscribing to a mortgage facility that will make each lawmaker cough out N2.5m every month, SUNDAY PUNCH has reliably learnt.
It was gathered that the lawmakers are buying flats in an estate close to Apo Legislative Quarters in Abuja at N50m each, while payment for each unit will be spread over 20 months.
The Senate had, at the resumption of plenary on April 4, 2017, entered an executive session, where the mortgage facility was discussed behind closed doors.

“An estate developer brought the idea, believing that payment for the facility will be secure, being that members of the National Assembly will have regular income during the two-year payment period. It is a smart move for the developer,” a senator who was at the meeting told our correspondent.
The source said the legislators were facing accommodat…

Bill Cosby's Assault Trial Begins Tomorrow -This Is What You Should Expect!

Image
More than two years after Bill Cosby was shoved off his showbiz pedestal by an avalanche of accusations of sexual assault, the once-acclaimed comedy icon goes on trial in Pennsylvania Monday over what happened in an encounter with one accuser more than 13 years ago.

Do not expect a rewind of the last 32 months of salaciously toxic headlines about Cosby's alleged sexual behavior with dozens of women dating back to the mid-1960s.

Instead, expect a trial as tightly focused as Judge Steven O'Neill can make it on what happened at Cosby's suburban Philadelphia estate in January 2004, when a Temple University basketball official named Andrea Constand arrived for dinner and career advice from her mentor, Cosby, a Temple alum.

Do not expect to see Cosby testifying on the stand; he has said he won't.

Do not expect to watch the trial on TV, on Twitter or via live-stream; there will be no cameras in and no transmissions of any kind from the courtroom.


but it will be covered: More than …

Igwe Onyido who endowed the quiz competition to discourage the use of illicit drugs among secondary school students in the state, commended NDLEA for its commitment in fighting drug abuse and peddling in the state, adding that drug addiction and abuse can lead to other vices such as kidnapping, armed robbery and prostitution.

The Malaysian Government through the Health Ministry have launched a competition, urging young people to make videos about 'preventing' homosexuality.

No bomb explosion in Oshodi- Lagos police command says

Image
The Lagos state police command has advised residents of the state to disregard rumors being peddled by some persons that there was a bomb blast at the Mafoluku- Oshodi area of the state on Saturday. A statement released by the commands spokesperson, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, says  a video being circulated purportedly from the bomb blast scene in Oshodi, is actually from the Banex bomb blast in Abuja in 2014. Read the statement below....

   “We would like to allay the fears of the general public with regards to the falsehood being circulated on the social media in respect of security situation at Mafoluku-Oshodi and environs.

Boy chops off his own man-hood after smoking Indian hemp

Image
A 16-year-old boy cut off his man-hood and almost killed his mum after he had taken what has been described as “super-strong” strain of Indian hemp.

The delusional teenager had reportedly gone to bed with a knife, as he started hallucinating, fearing that some people lived right inside the walls of his room.
He awoke in the dead of night and stabbed his mother before chopping off his own man-hood in what doctors said was “cannabis-induced psychotic episode.”

The boy’s dad told the BBC how the drug turned his otherwise “very bright, bubbly lad” into a paranoid “waste of space.”

“He basically had a psychotic episode and did huge amounts of harm to both himself and his mother,” the distraught father said.

The family’s identity could not be revealed because the boy is underage.

The man said his son tried smoking Indian hemp with a few friends before becoming “completely addicted.”

He said his son had delusions, believing mermaids were real and thought “people were living in the walls.”
