[MUST READ] SHAME!!! How immigration officers collect bribe at airports

 Travelling out of Nigeria presents another layer of experience of how corruption has eaten deep into the fabric of agencies responsible for facilitating air travel at our nation’s international borders. This time, my encounter with the officials of the Nigeria Immigration Service and sundry agencies at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos last week was a harrowing experience. I saw the brazen manner at which they coerce, solicit, persuade and even harass Nigerian and foreign travellers and visitors to part with money or other valuables. It is sickening and saddening to see immigration officers shamelessly solicit for bribes without respect for their uniform. What is happening at our international airports is a national disgrace.

Remembering the Aluu 4 exactly two years after


This month made it exactly two years since four young men were viciously murdered in Aluu, a community in Rivers state. The young men were reportedly students at the University of Port Harcourt.
Reports say the youths were thought to have stolen something or were cultists. So a mob attacked them on a street, stripped them naked, battered them with heavy sticks and then burned them to death while dozens of spectators cheered on.
Pictures and videos of the murder quickly spread through social media and the public reaction was intense rage. People were very appalled by the horror.

[PHOTO] SAD: Health of the 4-yr old boy Omonigho Abraham attacked by dogs worsens

It appears the condition of four-year-old Omonigho Abraham, who was attacked by two dogs in the Igando area of Lagos State about a month ago, has worsened in the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja where he is currently receiving treatment.
According to source, it was learnt from his father, Odia, that Omonigho’s scalp which was torn off by the German shepherd dogs during the gruesome attack, had not healed and had been giving off an offensive odour. He said this had given the family serious concern.

He said, “My boy still complains of pains in different parts of his body. Also, when they open the bandage on his head, you will see that there is no much difference. It’s still like the first time the incident happened.
“In fact, for up to two weeks no consultant or doctor attended to him, and his head started smelling.
“We have been told he may still have to be admitted for six months or up to one year, for the doctors to do a skin-grafting surgery on his open skull. They will cut skin from parts of his body, to cover up the skull.”
He added that he had also continued to foot the bills of the boy, despite the instruction of the state government to the hospital management not to collect any money for his expenses.

[MUST READ] Birth defects are real, pregnant moms beware

Probably because of the economic situation, many pregnant women neglect to go to the hospital for antenatal checkups through which the physician can monitor the progress of their pregnancy and prescribe standard medical advice where necessary.
In some instances, some pregnant women simply find solace in substandard hospitals manned by ill-trained personnel, while some make do with traditional birth attendants in their communities, the majority of whom are known to be unable to handle any emergency.
Experts warn that when pregnant women don’t attend antenatal clinics in standard medical facilities, they don’t only risk complications during delivery, but their unborn babies risk being born with certain abnormalities that might have been prevented or, at least, minimised if the doctor had seen such while the baby is still in the womb.
