My Husband Rapes Me Whenever He’s Drunk"


I’m leaving my husband because he beats, rapes me after drinking ― Bose Oladimeji

After two years of living together with a man as wife, popular Yoruba actress, Bose Oladimeji, says she’s had just about enough and walking out fast. Her reason is none other than domestic abuse, which she says has become not only brutally violent but life-threatening as well.

“Yes I’m ready to go, in fact, I’m not with him right now. I just have to run for my life, my life is very precious to me. I can’t just allow someone to kill me like that and I want to address some ladies out there that they should not love a guy because of what he gives them. They should be sure the love is genuine and not be fooled by money and comfort. I’m leaving right now, I need to run away for my life. I need to save myself. My life will be in danger if I continue to stay with him, so I’m leaving right now, she said in a chat with Potpourri.

Highlighting the gory details of the abuse, Bose Oladimeji said the beatings star…

‘I was a commercial driver for 16 years before becoming professor’

In the first of revelations to news organizations on his background, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Borno State ahead of the 2019 general elections, took Daily Trust Saturday down memory lane, giving account of movement from grass to grace. He was declared winner of the primaries two weeks ago. With the advantage of support by incumbent Governor Kashim Shettima, and sharp divisions in the main opposition PDP which produced governorship candidates in  parallel primaries, the Professor of Irrigation Engineering from University of Maiduguri looks is set, barring any unforeseen eventuality associated with politics.
A member of the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Prof. Zulum also said he never had the luxury of being lazy, since he had to struggle all his life. He began by talking about his humble background, in which he had to join his father in tilling the ground at a tender ag…

Downsizing parliament, lesson from Italy by @jideojong

FINANCIAL encumbrances have compelled Italy to downsize its parliament. The initiative by Five Star – the main party in the coalition government – will see the country saving a whopping €1 billion or £897 million in 10 years, amid its sluggish economic growth of 0.1 per cent in the second quarter of this year. Under the arrangement, the lower legislative house will be pruned from 630 to 400 members, while the senators’ current strength of 315 will be down to 200.  “It is done! Promise kept,” the Five Star hierarchy said in a tweet, shortly after the parliamentary approval. But the new order will not come into effect until after the next election in 2023, by which time it would have been ratified by a referendum. It is, indeed, a political or constitutional sea change. Italy’s Cabinet Secretary, Riccardo Fraccaro’s excitement about it is instructive: “The citizens are at the centre” of it all. The Italian news agency says an MP earns €230,000 per annum and a senator collects €249,600. Th…

#ResearchAnalysis: Farmers have sex more often than other professionals - Study

A new study shows farmers have sex more often than other professionals — as a third of those surveyed boast about having sex at least once a day. It’s not just the cows and chickens that are breeding down on the farm. According to the New York Post, what’s more, a staggering 67 per cent of them rated their performance in the bedroom as “incredible,” according to the study by sex toy manufacturer, Lelo. A sex expert, Kate Moyle, said it was because farmers were more likely to be fitter than desk-bound city dwellers, and therefore have more stamina. “Even within groups such as professions where there is a lot of similarities, we have to consider that there is a huge amount of individual differences impacting people’s sexuality and sex lives,” Ms Moyle told the UK Mirror. “However, what we may expect are some trends, for example, the level of physical activity in a career such as a farmer, rather than someone in an office setting may impact levels of fitness and energy,” she said. The r…

Caution: Over Exposure To Phones, Computers & TV Screens Could Blind One

The blue-violet light peeking out from the screen was potentially harzardous to the eyes, and could lead to long-term problems, including blindness.

“It’s advisable to reduce ‘computer vision syndrome’, that is, feasting your eyes on a computer for a long time, because of the rays that come out from there, especially an LED computer, laptop or phone,” she said.

“Putting your eyes for a long time on a particular screen is not good because it can lead to symptoms of dryness in the eyes.

“Read for a while, at least for about 30 to 40 minutes, then remove your eyes from the screen for about five to six minutes so that you don’t end up with eye strain.”

#PatheticNews : Half of Nigerian children not growing well, UNICEF laments -

The United Nations Children Fund, UNICEF, has said 49 per cent of children under the age of five in the country do not grow well as they are either stunted, wasted or overweight. UNICEF Nigeria said this in a statement and added that malnutrition remains a major public health and development concern. It said breastfeeding can save lives but regretted that only 27 per cent of children under six months of age were exclusively breastfed and an increasing number of children were fed infant formula. “This means many Nigerian children are missing out on the life-saving benefits of breastmilk which is a baby’s first vaccine and offers the best possible nutrition at the start of life,” it said. UNICEF warned that poor eating and feeding practices started from the earliest days of children’s life put them at risk of poor brain development, weak learning, low immunity, increased infections and, in many cases death. It said the malnutrition level in the country should be tackled and appealed to…
