57 Year Old Father Arrested For Alleged Attempt To Kill Daughters.

A 57-year-old man, Ekpokemem Odoni, has been arrested for attacking two of his daughters, 23 year old Ezonboere Odoni and 16 year old Norene Odoni, with a machete in an attempt to kill them while they were asleep.

The dastardly act took place in Agudama in Yenagoa Local Government Area, Bayelsa state.

Giving his statement, the suspect told officers of the Bayelsa Police command that he had overheard his daughters’ plot to kill him which was why he dealt deep machete cuts on them in an attempt to kill them.

“I went to Sagbama to cut wood. But I got injured in my leg. When I returned home, my daughters boiled water for me and also cooked food for me. But as they were discussing between themselves, I overhead them say that they would put charm in my water and food to kill me. So I refused to eat the food.

“When they were sleeping at night, around 11:00 pm, I took my cutlass and went to where they were sleeping and attacked them. I thought they were dead and ran away in fear.

“On the road, a police team on patrol saw me. They suspected I did something wrong; so they stopped me and asked questions. I confessed what I did to my daughters and they took me to Akenfa Police station.

“I have regretted my action. I want God to forgive my evil act.”

Meanwhile, neighbours quickly rescued the two daughters and took them to Niger Delta University Teaching Hospital, Okolobiri, where healthcare staff battled to save their lives.

One of the daughters who spoke with Channels Television on her hospital bed, said “We love our father. We cannot hurt our father. My father came home on that fateful day with a big injury. We boiled water for him to bathe and clean the wound.

“After taking care of him, we went to bed. While we were sleeping my father attacked us with a cutlass and tried to kill us. When he thought that we were dead, he left the house. It was our neighbours that rescued us and brought us to this hospital (NDUTH), where we are receiving treatment.”

The Assistant Commissioner of Police, in charge of the State Criminal Investigation Department, Ahmed Abdul, while confirming the arrest of the suspect, added that the cutlass allegedly used by the suspect to commit the criminal act had been recovered by detectives.

He said the case has been transferred to the headquarters of the State Criminal Investigation Department (Homicide Section), Bayelsa Police Command, Yenagoa.

Abdul also gave an assurance that the suspect would soon be charged to court.

Marriage Ceremonies Of The Daughters Of PMB Vs GEJ: The Difference – By Lawrence Ibe

Do you know that President Buhari’s daughter got married last Friday (28/10/2016) in Daura, but the President stayed back in Abuja to attend to issues of national importance? He later joined them in the night to meet with guests and flew back to Abuja early Saturday morning to continue his work.

Do you also remember two years ago (12/04/2014) when former President Jonathan’s adopted daughter got married? A huge jamboree of an extravagant wedding was staged while billions of Naira were expended. Customized gold plated iPhones were given as gifts to everyone privileged to be in the reception hall. The best of foreign wines were served. Abundance of  food was in offer and the best of entertainers were hired to keep guests entertained while they dined and wined. In return, the bride was “dashed” over 80 exotic brand new cars, including houses by those her father bragged to have made wealthy.

The worst of it all was that state functions nationwide were suspended, all government activities were put on hold because Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s daughter was wedding; all roads led to Bayelsa. That weekend was madness because the entire administration of governance in Nigeria was suspended because the President’s daughter was getting married. People were falling over themselves to show favour to the President’s daughter in an anticipation that their goodwill would be reciprocated by GEJ.

Now the case is different. The contrast is that, here we have another sitting President whose daughter got married and you did not even know about it because it wasn’t made a state function. It was a very modest wedding and simply family affair. This is what leadership is: a leader not using his political position to attract wordly gains to himself. I can also tell you that some people wanted to make this wedding a state affair, a lavish, expensive and glamorous wedding; but President Buhari rejected that proposal and only insisted it must be modest and a family affair devoid of waste and ostentation.

This post is not meant to praise anyone but to sample an attitude every political office holder must emulate. A life of modesty, simplicity and not abusing ones political office for self aggrandizement. This time around, all roads did not lead to Daura.

Bill Cosby Spotted With Wife Looking Frail & Weak As He Leaves Home To Visit His Daughters

Scandal-scarred Bill Cosby and his wife Camille made a rare trip outside the gates of their well-protected lair at the weekend to visit New York. Cosby, 78, looked frail as he left his townhouse on New York’s Upper East Side on Sunday afternoon, leaning on his wife for support.

He wore a white hooded sweatshirt embellished with the words ‘Hello Friend,’ the catchphrase of his son Ennis, who was murdered in 1997.

It was the first time the couple have been pictured together since November 6 last year, when they gave an interview to NPR as the claims against him were beginning to grow. Cosby has not been pictured since May.

The comic, facing claims that he drugged and raped dozens of women over decades, left his long-time home in Massachusetts to take a private plane trip to the Big Apple where all four of his daughters live. More photos below.


See What Michelle Obama & Daughters Wore To Welcome Pope

Pope Francis’s touch down in Washington, D.C. may have been the biggest thing in the news Tuesday evening, but personally, I couldn’t take my eyes off off Michelle Obama, and the flaw-free outfit she’d chosen to wear for the highly photo-documented occasion.

To greet the Pope at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, Obama, joined by her husband, Barack, and daughters, Malia and Sasha, dressed as appropriately and as lovely as we’ve come to expect. Her dress, by devout Catholic designer Carolina Herrera, was a baby blue, fit-and-flare, wool crepe number, with short sleeves, a ‘60s-esque high cowl neck, and matching skinny belt.

Mother Stabs 7Yr Old Son For Raping His 2Yr Old Sister And A Neighbour’s Daughter

A seven-year-old boy, identified simply as Promise, has been stabbed by her mother with broken bottles for allegedly defiling his two-year-old step-sister and the daughter of a neighbour.

The incident happened on Monday on Tunde Olusola Street, in the Ijaiye-Ojokoro area of Lagos.

The mother, Mrs. Blessing Fred, was said to have gone out with her daughter on Sunday, leaving Promise behind.
While the mother was away, Promise went to visit five-year-old Yemi (pseudonym) ? the neighbour’s daughter ? at her parents’ apartment. He was said to have met Yemi alone and took her to his mother’s room.

On getting to the room, he reportedly told her to remove her clothes and lie down. He laid on top of the girl and fiddled with her private parts.

Yemi’s mother had left her with her sister, who was said to have left home when the incident happened.

Punch Metro reports that Yemi narrated what transpired between her and Promise to her mother when she came back.

A neighbour who spoke to Punch said that Yemi’s mother invited Promise to her apartment and verified the story in the presence of her daughter.

She said, “Initially, he denied. But when the woman assured him that she would not tell his mother, he opened up and said it was true. He said he had been doing it with his step-sister too. The woman later reported Promise to his mother and he confessed to her as well.”

“She first beat him with a stick on Monday for the offence. But all of a sudden, she smashed a bottle and stabbed him in the back.”

A resident, Bose Komolafe, said Fred had been arrested by the police from the Ijaiye-Ojokoro Police Division, while Promise had been admitted to a hospital in the area.

She said, “Some neighbours rushed to rescue the child from her. He is on admission at a hospital.

Kenyan Lawyer Offers Obama 50 Cows, 70 Sheep, 30 Goats to Marry Daughter Malia

A Kenyan lawyer named Kiprono Matagei has made public his special request to US President Barack Obama.

One of Kiprono’s dream is to marry Barack’s first daughter Malia so he has announced that he is ready to pay 50 cows, 70 sheep, and 30 goats as bride price. And he is ready to meet Obama to discuss the matter when Obama visits in July.

Kenya Digest reports that Kiprono said:

“I got interested in her in 2008. As a matter of fact, I haven’t dated anyone since and promise to be faithful to her. I have shared this with my family and they are willing to
help me raise the bride price”

The young lawyer claims his love for Malia is real, not infatuation.

People might say I am after the family’s money but that is not the case. My love is real. I am currently drafting a letter to Obama asking him to please have Malia accompany him for this trip. I hope the embassy will hand the letter to him. I will hand it over to the US Ambassador with whom we have interacted several times.

What is disturbing here is that as at 2008 when Kiprono says he fell in love with Malia, she was just 10 years old.

Kiprono also added that should Obama accept his request, his engagement to the ‘love of his life’ will be a unique one.

“If my request is granted, I will not resort to the cliché of popping champagne. Instead, I will surprise her with mursik , the traditional Kalenjin sour milk, as an indication that she is my queen. I will propose to her on a popular hill in Bureti near my father’s land where leaders and warriors are usually crowned. Ours will be a simple life. I will teach Malia how to milk a cow, cook ugali and prepare mursik like any other Kalenjin woman”

Malia Obama is 16, set to turn 17 on July 4.
