Am sure by now, everyone is tired of all the pointing of fingers...WHO is sponsoring Boko Haram and how come NO ONE is in jail yet or being prosecuted? How come the US effort to help train the Nigerian Military was side tracked? Please show us some PROOF...no be to just dey point accusing fingers and blaming this person or that person. These BH people have friends, family and loved ones in Nigeria.....how come we can't get a clear answer?!?
Everyone needs to watch this documentary on MONKEY ISLAND - a modern day "Planet of the Apes" - An Island in the middle of a river in Liberia, deep in the jungle of West Africa now home to over 60 Chimpanzees; all infected with contagious diseases. (Hepatitis, HIV etc.). They were released there years ago after being used for medical research and now they've grown wild.
Watch the short documentary and make you informed decision.
Alright, so why do I believe in the existence of Voodoo/Witches & Wizards who can transform themselves to other types of animals/birds and fly to their meetings? Very simple....I grew up in Nigeria - Africa and lived with the stark reality of voodoo/Juju as part of the culture. I saw Black Witchcraft/Wizardry practiced by neighbors, family members, friends and foes alike. I witnessed these dark forces falling under the anointing of the Holy Spirit at Church revivals and public places. Yes, they exist and do a lot of havoc to their families and loved ones.
I saw enough growing up that shocked the heck outta me. I've personally witnessed a lot of things and will share just 4 of such incidents that I witnessed, first hand:
1. At Rufai Street (Osodi, Lagos), on my way home from High School one day - I witnessed a man turn a girl into a goat and started dragging the goat away - obviously for money rituals. People quickly surrounded him and he confessed but claimed that he could not turn the girl back into a human being except they take the "goat" to the medicine man (Babalawo) and only he can restore her back to her human form. Some elderly men left the scene with the man and headed to the Babalawo's house. I did not go with them nor do I know what became of the girl/goat! But I saw the transformation happen, right before my eyes - I will NEVER forget it!!!
2. At Osodi Bus stop, on my way home from work one evening, I witnessed a man touch another man's private part and his Penis vanished...the man whose manhood disappeared started screaming and took off his pants to show the public what had just happened to him...his penis had shrunk to the size of a toddler. When the crowd gathered and started beating the man accused of the "touch and go", he confessed right there that he was given the voodoo by a medicine man and all he had to do was touch people and their penis would vanish. When he realized that the crowd was going to stone him to death (Jungle Justice), he then agreed to restore the missing Penis...YES, it happened, right before my very eyes, the man got his weeny back, took off his pants and it was his normal size (he was very ecstatic and jumping around happy that his penis came back)....Yes, it happened - I have no reason to lie about what I saw that day. It will traumatize me for the rest of my life and unfortunately, make me a believer in the existence of "powers" and "spiritual wickedness"
3. Am sure a lot of you witnessed the Clifford Orji Saga - as a matter of fact, I accidentally ran into Clifford Orji once, around 7/8 bus stop (along MMI Airport road) and he looked like a mad man - in fact I had no doubt in my mind that he was a lunatic - but what happened to the illusion of reality? it turns out that this man made a living by pretending to be crazed so he could kidnap and kill his innocent victims so he could sell their body parts to his clients, for money ritual. When game was up for Clifford, people could recall seeing a lot of fancy/flashy cars parked near where he committed his atrocity (under a public bridge) - obviously people who are into voodoo/Juju "get quick rich" were his Patrons.
4. I witnessed a friend attend a Church revival with her Cousin who got "arrested" under heavy anointing of the Holy Spirit, during the prayer session and started confessing about all the people she had killed and put in bondage. She mentioned names of some of her cohorts and announced that her Mother had initiated her into Witchcraft. Yes, this happened in my presence and astounded me!!
Let me tell you that am a very realistic person and some will even consider me a Skeptic of some sort - for me, things like this are best seen to be believed and I saw my fair share of evil being perpetrated by people that you would never, in a million years, believe they could be involved in such heinous acts.
I am still a Nigerian/African and we need to stop all the pretense and call a spade a spade - Stuff like this EXIST and y'all know it does!! If you did not witness it growing up, because you were not exposed to their existence does not rule out the fact that we live in a strange World - full of inexplicable mysteries, which is why the bible warns us to be at alert and prayerful.
"For ours is not a conflict with mere flesh and blood, but with the despotisms, the empires, the forces that control and govern this dark world--the spiritual hosts of evil arrayed against us in the heavenly warfare" - Ephesians 6:12

Medicinal plants contain a wide array of chemical compounds. They have a distinct order to their perfection. Natural selection pressures push these plants to "try out" variations on molecules to enhance the plant's odds of surviving stressful environments. So, often, one molecule is present in the greatest amount and has the most dramatic effect in a human body -- but along with it are variations of that molecule in the same plant.
They're edible flowering plants which widely grow in South America. Dandelions are used to make recipes and drinks.

Tansy is an old-world aster and remedy, used for flavoring beer and stews as well as repelling insects. Rubbing the leaves on the skin provides an effective bug repellent, but tansy can also be used to treat worms. It is said to be poisonous when extracted, but a few leaves are not harmful if ingested.

With roots that grow 20 to 30 feet deep, alfalfa is considered the “father of all plants”. (It also contains a high amount of protein for a green.) Alfalfa originally grew in the Mediterranean and Middle East but has now spread to most of Europe and the Americans. It can treat morning sickness, nausea, kidney stones, kidney pain and urinary discomfort. It is a powerful diuretic and has a bit of stimulant power, helping to energize after a bout with illness. It’s a liver and bowel cleanser and long-term can help reduce cholesterol. You can purchase seeds and sprouts, but it’s fine to eat the leaves straight from the earth.
7. Tea Tree
Tea-tree is one of the most powerful plants effective against dangerous bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections. It effectively prevents insects and can cure insects bites almost instantly. Tea tree oil is one of the best solutions to keep fungus at bay and also prevent against head lice.

The cannabis of the cat kingdom. Famous for making cats deliriously crazy, catnip has health properties that are great for humans, too. Catnip can relieve cold symptoms (helpful if you’re on a camping trip and don’t have access to Nyquil). It’s useful in breaking a fever as it promotes sweating. Catnip also helps stop excessive bleeding and swelling when applied rather than ingested. This mint plant (yep, another one) is also reportedly helpful in treating gas, stomach aches, and migraines. Catnip can stimulate uterine contractions, so it should not be consumed by pregnant women. It grows in the Northern Hemisphere.
Thyme is widely used as an aromatic plant, as well as an edible one. It effectively prevents small insects and provides many many health benefits mainly for lung problems such as shortness in breath.

Sage is an incredibly useful herb, widely considered to be perhaps the most valuable herb. It is anti-flammatory, anti-oxidant, and antifungal. In fact, according to a noted resource World’s Healthiest Foods, “Its reputation as a panacea is even represented in its scientific name, Salvia officinalis, derived from the Latin word, salvere, which means ‘to be saved’.” It was used as a preservative for meat before the advent of refrigeration (eminently useful: you never know when you’ll be forced to hunt in the wild). Sage aids digestion, relieves cramps, reduces diarrhea, dries up phlegm, fights colds, reduces inflammation and swelling, acts as a salve for cuts and burns, and kills bacteria. Sage apparently even brings color back to gray hair. A definite concern when lost in the woods.
11. Brucea Javanica
Beyond limited empirical observations, not all medicinal plants have established scientific studies to support their effectiveness. However, in the case of Brucea javanica, it is one of those plants in which scientific investigations have provided enough evidence to prove that it has an impressive efficacy for the treatment of cervical, bladder and pancreatic cancers. Its selective toxicity has also been found to kill 70% of breast cancer cells. Brucea javanica (Brucea javanica (L.) Merr) is one of those plants that needs far more recognition in this catergory for its incredible ability to selectively kill cancer cells.
12. Navajo Tea

14. Sweet Marjoram
Marjoram and oregano are often used interchangeably, but the aromatic sweet marjoram is slightly different. The Greeks called it the “Joy of the Mountain” and it was revered throughout the Mediterranean for its fragrance, flavor and medicinal value. The famous French herbs de provence and Middle Eastern za’atar both use sweet marjoram. Marjoram has many uses (it’s a famous digestive aid) but it is effective as an antifungal, antibacterial and disinfectant treatment in a pinch.
Feverfew is a plant that has well-known and documented health properties and medicinal benefits, yet it's barely ever mentioned in health circles. This anti-inflammatory can treat rheumatism, arthritis and, most famously, migraine headaches and tension headaches. It’s also good for alleviating tension and general anxiety (it is a natural serotonin inhibitor). It also helps to reduce swelling and bruising. Though feverfew is most effective when taken daily, it can be a helpful pain reliever when no Advil is on hand.
16. Sweet Violet
Native to Europe and Asia, sweet violet is cultivated around the world and is a pleasant, delicate purple color. When brewed into a syrup the plant is effective as a treatment for colds, flu and coughs or sore throat.

Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), the telecoms industry regulator has declared 13 telecoms operators that were hitherto vibrant, as inactive.
The list of inactive operators, which was posted on NCC’s website, include one national carrier, one GSM operator, five Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) operators and six Fixed/Fixed Wireless operators.
The operators include NITEL, MTel, Starcomms, Reliance Telecoms (Zoom Mobile), Intercellular, MTS First Communications, WiTel, O’ Net (Odua Telecoms), Rainbownet, Monarch Communications, Xs Broadband, Webcom, and Disc Communications.
The operators became inactive, following the total loss of their customers to other operators that are currently pulling weight in the industry.
They had since gone into extinction and could no longer offer competitive services to their customers, who decided to port to other network operators.
Porting was however not linked to the Mobile Number Portability (MNP) scheme that was introduced in April last year, as the 13 operators had long shown signs of distress in their operations. MNP allows subscribers the opportunity to port their numbers from one network to another, in search of better service quality.
NCC decided to declare the operators inactive to enable it study and circulate the accurate figures of telecoms operations in the country.

Nollywood actress, Sylvya Oluchy, who won the Most Promising Act of the Year award at the 2013 Best of Nollywood Awards, once said she was ready to act nude if need be, prompting so many people to criticize and label her a desperate
Reporters again cut up with her to know if she really meant what she said or if she has probably changed her mind following all criticism. Read excerpt from interview below….
You recently said you could act nude in a movie?
There was a bit of mix-up in that story. They asked me what I think of indecency in movies and I said it depends on the movie. If you’ve watched The Gods Must Be Crazy, the indecency in that movie was done for accuracy because people then went about nudé.
So, when they asked me I said it depends on the script. It depends on the director I’ll be working with because it’s all about the director’s picture, it’s the director’s story. If I know I’m working with a director who I trust, who I know will make everything tastefully done, where it won’t end up looking like some badly made pornography and it’s a good script, I’ll make my decision.
Can you do a s*x scene in a movie?
Yeah. I mean in Lekki Wives I have a couple of kissing and romantic scenes, no indecency but there was a lot of k*ssing and lots of making out so it comes with the job.
What’s the craziest thing you can do in a movie?
You never know what’s going to come your way or you never know I might just see myself in Hollywood one day, you never know so I never say never. N*dity is not a big deal.
You released some semi-n*de pictures on the beach…
It depends. There’s a level you’ll get to in your modeling career that you just have to do things like that. The highest paid models, the ones you see on Victoria’s Secret runways, I’m sure they do stuff like that. It comes with the territory so before you go into a career like that, you have to prepare yourself.
Even though that’s not really where I’m channeling myself to, it depends on why you’re doing it and the outlet. Gisele Bundchen is like the highest paid model in the world today and I’ve seen a lot of her unclad photos for Vogue and other things, she’s just doing her job.
People are now saying that President Goodluck Jonathan’s good intention might have ruined Nigeria’s participation at the FIFA world cup and caused the Eagle’s to lose against France.
Two days before the crucial game, the Eagles stars had refused to train until they where paid there their share of the $8m that FIFA would pay the Nigeria Football Federation.
Immediately, Jonathan in an attempt to save the country from further embarrassment ordered the sports minister, Tammy Danagogo to fly over $3.5m to the team’s camp and settle their demands.
The issue had also been strange for the NFF because FIFA was yet to pay the money, But the players feared that When FIFA pays they won’t get their share and wanted theirs in advance.
Vanguard reports that the Senate President, David Mark was the one who informed the President of the problem in the Team. Then Jonathan swiftly told Danagogo to take $3.5m and a private jet to the boys, the minister is said to have handed the money to the Big Boss Keshi, but Keshi told them to hand it over to the team secretary Enebi.
That where the problem started, Because the money had to be shared between the team on the eve of the match against France, The team argued about the sharing ratio till around 2.00 am on the match day.
A source close to the team said: “Did you notice that the players tired out in the dying minutes of the match and conceded two goals,”.
“There was no way they could have been strong when they were fighting over money and could not sleep well and prepare for the match against France,”the source said adding “the fight over money destroyed the team and unfortunately the President’s gesture backfired.”
The 14-year-old bride, suspected to have poisoned her husband and three others in April has been charged with culpable homicide punishable by death by the Kano State Government.
This came following the withdrawal of the case from the juvenile court to a Kano State High Court over what judicial sources attributed to “lack of jurisdiction by the lower court”.
The charge sheet read: “Application to prefer a charge under Section 185(B) of the Criminal Procedure code Cap.105 Laws of Kano State 1991, signed on behalf of the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice by a Senior State Counsel in the ministry, Lamido A Soron Dinki, lined seven prosecution witnesses.
The three-page documents stated inter alia: “By the power conferred upon the Attorney General of Kano State of Nigeria under Section 211(1) (a) (b) and (c) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) and Section 7 of the Criminal Procedure Code Law Cap. 37 Laws of Kano State which delegate powers, I do hereby seek, under Criminal Procedure Code, to charge for trial of Wasila Tasiu”.
The charge sheet further read, “That you, Wasila Tasiu, 14 years, of Yansoro village, Gaya Local Government Council, on or about the 5th day of April, 2014, at about 14:30 hours, at Yansoro village, Gaya within the Kano Judicial Division, did commit culpable homicide punishable with death in that you caused the death of four persons.
“Wasila Tasiu allegedly killed Umar Sani, 35, Hassan Alhassan, 25, Nasiru Muhammad, 13, and Indo Ibrahim, 12, by poisoning them with a rat killer substance in their food, with intention of causing their deaths and you hereby committed an offence under Section 221 (a) of the Penal Code Law of Kano State 1990, Cap 105.”
The suit has been slated for hearing on August 4 at Kano State High Court, Gezewa and a notice was said to have been served the suspect’s lawyers.
Chairperson, Kano State chapter, Federation of Women Lawyers, Hajiya Hussaina Aliyu, while reacting on the issue confirmed the receipt of the legal documents, adding: “Competent hands have been assigned to handle the case”.
Remember the popular Nigerian saying about all lizards crawling on their belle making it impossible to tell which one has belle ache?
These days in her Chicago apartment that she shares with her young son, Emeka, Pamela Mojekwu stares through the windows, watching the early morning sunrise streak into her living room, reminding her of another gracious day to be thankful and hopeful. Her heart has deep scars of tragedies, her face lights up from the beams of the sunrise, with a promise of better days ahead. In her 59th year, she’s still running against the winds of life, living, but in control of her speed in this race.
“I have learnt to get to my treasured destiny at my own time. You can’t hurry sunrise anymore: not with what life privileged me these years.”
“.....when life deals you lemon, you learn fast how to make lemonade. Life certainly dealt me with tragic circumstances within the past decade and these situations taught me how to make the lemonades of life: Life is bittersweet”.
Mojekwu was Nigeria’s first celebrated aerobics and fitness expert. In the eighties, she was famous with her weekly fitness columns in Nigeria’s Vanguard Newspaper, her television appearances on Lagos Television and subsequently, Morning Ride, NTA, Lagos.
She also dashingly encouraged a new generation of Nigerians then struggling with obesity to define their values, be proud of their weight, called an obese nation to action for better living through intense daily exercises. She brutalized our bodies and empowered us as she tortured us, affectionately. Mojekwu was everywhere with a new brand: Miss Keep Fit.
She was in all major networks every Saturday morning, motivating the nation with information on wellness, weight loss and fitness.
While she woke our nation to fitness exercises, she was also silently facing her own internal family health challenges: she hid these from her clients and the nation with infectious bright smiles that spread over her face every Saturday morning.
Her only child then, Tina, was very sick. Every day was great expectation with regards to Tina’s health issues: “Tina was sick. I took her to Eko Hospital. The hospital diagnosed her illness as “sicklier foot” disease. I didn’t understand what that meant: she was losing weight all the time from this strange illness. We continued with the recommended treatment for my only child and daughter then. The more we treated her, the worse her condition grew.”
During a chanced visit to Eko Hotels, she picked a magazine from the lobby and began to read as she waited for her host. Inside the magazine, she read about a Dr. Smith of Children’s Hospital in Chicago discussing about Vascular Necrosis. The symptoms he shared in the magazine were consistent with Tina’s. Mojekwu decided that evening to seek the doctor in Chicago. Few weeks later, they arrived at the children’s hospital and her daughter was diagnosed with sickle cell anaemia.
Mojekwu would abandon life to begin care management for her daughter. No mother would watch her daughter go through the rigors of sickle cell treatment and pain without a heart ache. Tina was regularly in the hospital. Her sickle cell disease was progressive and fast, weakening her immune system. Pamela described one of those scary moments watching her daughter in pains.
“America’s health system doesn’t lie to you. The doctors were blunt. They told me that her sickle cell was in advanced stages and she may not live. But she lived until that accident in 2009.”
Tina battled sickle cell disease throughout her life: most of her adult years were spent inside the emergency room of the hospital. Pamela lived these years with her in the hospital. During one of their visits to the ER, Tina went into coma and was placed on life support at the ICU. Doctors encouraged Pamela to go home and decide switching off the life support the next day. Tina miraculously woke up from her coma at midnight, cried for her mother!
The uncertainties of life began to pepper her five years ago when she lost her husband, Tina’s father, to cancer disease. Two years after losing her husband, on a humid July Sunday, Pamela and Tina honoured an invitation from her cousin to visit. She had worked all day; end of her shift, she went home and picked Tina to rendezvous with her family. After the visit, Pam and Tina began a journey back to their home. It was the last time mother and child would ride together. Something happened and she swerved her car into a ditch and crashed. It was fatal. Her only daughter who beat death few months earlier would not survive the wreck. She died on impact, at the scene of the accident. Pamela sustained serious brain injuries and collapsed lung.
“Jebose, I didn’t know to this day how the accident happened. I woke up in a hospital only to be told that the passenger with me in the vehicle died at the scene of the accident. That passenger was my only daughter. Christine was dead! Because of the severity of my injuries: collapsed lungs, broken ribs and brain injuries, I was placed in medically induced coma. I would see her in my coma stage. She was right there with me. She took me to the scene of the accident to see the wrecked car. She stayed with me until her funeral: she then appeared again and said to me: “Mom, your road will be long and hard but you will make it.”
Soon after Tina’s death, the City of Chicago arraigned her at the Cook County Court House and charged her with vehicular homicide: it alleged Pam was responsible for Tina’s death. She was thrown into jail. Life had no meaning to her: she barely remembered anything. She was suicidal. The prison officers placed her in a 23-hour solitary confinement, watching her every hour: “I was locked down for 23 hours every day, the first month. I was only allowed one hour to shower and exercise. Meals would be passed to me through a hole in the middle of my cell door. It was horrible: a mother being jailed for an auto accident that killed her only daughter, sustaining serious brain injuries that affected her memories. I was a volcano, waiting to erupt.”
Pamela Mojekwu mourned her daughter while in jail: the horrible experiences triggered depression.
“Dealing with Tina’s death, initially, was extremely difficult for me. I would stay in my bed for days, covered up, could not eat, and couldn’t bath. The experience is beyond explanation. It’s a sad feeling that words can’t capture with description. It’s a unique moment in our lives and I pray no woman buries her child, especially her sick daughter.”
Her painful ordeals redirected her new life. Through these challenges, she moved her aging mother to a nursing home for assisted living. Her mother had developed Alzheimer’s disease. Last month, one of her younger sisters died. She was buried this week.
Through rehabilitation and treatments, she is slowly recovering from the emotional traumas of her circles of life.
“Jebose, who would go through losing a husband, a daughter in an accident, brain injuries, sending your mother to a nursing home because you could no longer care for her , locked up for the death of your daughter and not be an emotional wreck? I was a disaster that happened.”
Part of life’s redirection is her new found platform for sickle cell advocacy. She has become a passionate psalm for children, especially African children affected by sickle cell. She set up a nonprofit foundation in memory of her late daughter; Christine Sickle Cell Foundation.
“It’s the best way to honor her painful times on earth. I was blessed to have her in my life. My mission now is to travel to Nigeria within the next few months and open an office where this foundation would be able to help our people through information, education and assist in providing a manageable care for those with sickle cell disease. I want to encourage everyone going through any circumstance in life or similar to mine, that it’s not over until God says otherwise. Be strong. I am strongest today, despite the tragedies.”
