Obama Calls for Peaceful, Free and Fair Elections

The President of the United States (US) Barack Obama, in a video message to Nigerians as they head to the polls Saturday for the presidential election, said regardless of the outcome of the 2015 general election, it is the responsibility of all Nigerians to help keep the peace, as violence should have no place in democracy.

He called on all leaders and candidates to make it clear to their supporters that violence has no place in democratic elections, and also added that successful elections and democratic progress would help Nigeria meet the urgent challenges the country faces today, noting that Boko Haram—a brutal terrorist group that kills innocent men, women and children—must be stopped

I was hypnotized, says lady who killed lover over N200

A 20-year-old lady, Gift Wahab, has allegedly stabbed her boyfriend to death in Ajegunle area of Lagos last Thursday.

Gift was said to be  hypnotized by a force she could not resist. She also said the argument that resulted in the fight, which led to her boyfriend’s death, was over N200.

She said: “He usually gave me N200 as feeding money, but on that  fateful day as we were returning from where we went to drink, I became hungry and complained to him. He got angry and asked why I should complain of hunger after he had spent the only money he had on drinks. An argument ensued, during which he slapped me in the public.

“I got angry and held on to his shirt. He kept beating me and in the process, he inflicted injury on my nose. It was when I saw blood gushing from my nose that I ran inside the room and brought out a knife. He dared me to stab him and I stabbed him in the neck, not knowing he would die”.
