This is your first experience as an actress. What was it like for you?
It was very different and working on TV is obviously a completely different ball game. People do say that presenters naturally have this acting flair. But being a presenter, you always have to, in a sense, show who you are. You have to be real because you have to shine. But when you are an actress, you have to play the part. You have to be a different character; so, it was awesome. It was a bit challenging, but it was a very interesting experience.
No fewer than 800 Chibok youths have in the last six weeks fled their homes and ran to Lagos, Kano, Abuja and other cities to evade attack by the violent Boko Haram sect.

Late Dr. Enemuo’s Clinic
A close friend of late Port Harcourt Doctor, Dr. Sam Ikechukwu Enemuo, who secretly treated Olu Koye, the ECOWAS official in a hotel has said his friend didn’t know the Diplomat was infected with the virus and wouldn't have risked his life and that of others because of a mere token. Vanguard had a one on one interview with Mr. Tochukwu Agha, his close friend in Lagos and he said something entirely different from what Nigerians have been made to believe. The interview starting from Vanguard's intro below;
Until a few weeks ago, Dr. Sam Ikechukwu Enemuo was a relatively unknown name. But today, the very mention of his name and everyone is quick to identify him as the doctor who knowingly treated an Ebola patient in a hotel in Port Harcourt, contracted the disease and died of the illness after infecting others he had close contact with. An elderly woman who shared hospital room with him also died of the disease.

I was holidaying at my cousin’s shop in Aba, Abia State when news broke that Gen. Sanni Abacha was dead. In fact I was at the centre of the popular Ariaria market that evening. Sixteen years on, I still see the worried faces of the traders as they hurriedly closed their shops as uncertainty took hold of the town. The look on my cousin’s face as he dragged us out of the market is something I still tease him about till date.

1. Concerning the resumption of all public and private nursery, primary and secondary schools for the 2014/2015 session, Lagos State Government supports the September 22, 2014 date, which was announced by the Federal Government after a national consultation on efforts to contain the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in Nigeria.
2. Although this resumption date is advisory, as education is a concurrent matter to be regulated by the respective Federal and States Authorities, Lagos State Government considers it eminently justifiable, in view of the fact that there is currently no known carrier of EVD in our State at the moment. Furthermore, the last individual suspected to have been exposed to the virus will be discharged from observation on September 18, 2014, if he tests negative for the virus. All public and private educational institutions in the State are therefore directed to schedule their resumption accordingly.

Dear Ladun, please I would like you to share my short story with your readers. My husband fights me over our house help and I sometimes wonder if this is normal. I have never in my life raised my hand to touch her and the only thing I do is chastise her verbally, which is not cruelty as far as am concerned. My husband however, thinks differently as he thinks she can do no wrong.
When I try to correct her, which doesn’t happen very often because I am someone that overlooks a lot of things, my husband comes after me and it turns out to be a big fight. I have asked him severally if he is sleeping with her, and even stylishly asked the girl too, but both have denied it. I believe strongly that he is not, and I really don’t want to send her back to her village because getting a house help in Lagos has become a difficult task.
Nevertheless, can anyone give me a clue because this sounds and looks strange to me as I strongly feel it is abnormal for my husband to be picking up fights with me over trivial issues such as hers? God bears me witness that I do not maltreat her. She eats what the family eats and lacks nothing.

The Olympic and Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius has been found guilty of culpable homicide for the fatal shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
The guilty verdict on the manslaughter charge, a day after the judge Thokozile Masipa cleared him of murder, means Pistorius could receive anything from 15 years in prison to a suspended sentence, which would potentially allow the double amputee a chance to resurrect his sporting career.
The charge of culpable homicide carries a minimum sentence of a fine, or up to 10 years in prison, according to the discretion of the judge.
He has been granted extended bail, and will be sentenced October 13.
A South African, Folswe Elizabeth Maria, suspected of showing symptoms of Ebola Virus Disease, EVD, as she arrived Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos yesterday, has been quarantined at the isolation ward in Lagos.
The female passenger who came on board Royal Air Maroc, from Morocco was on transit when she took ill at the transit area of the airport after using the toilet. The case was immediately reported to officials of the Port Health Services who used the Infra-red Thermometre to test her and discovered that she had high temperature. The passenger was later taken to an isolation centre and kept under observation before transferring her to the isolation ward.
It was further gathered that the woman had worked previously in two Ebola Virus Disease-prone countries of Guinea and Sierra Leone, thus fuelling suspicion that she could have contracted the disease.
When they reached out to his manager, Ubi Franklin, he denied they were talking to her team, but when probed further said, ‘I’ll be so glad if it happens, I’m very open to the idea of doing a song with her’ he said. Fingers crossed.
President Jonathan Did Not Take Sheriff To Chad, He Will Also Not Interfere In The Ongoing Investigation Of Former Borno Governor- Abati
We have noted with surprise, the unnecessary hue and cry raised by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and other bigoted critics of the Jonathan Administration over the claim that the President is “hobnobbing” with the former governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff who was recently accused by the Australian, Stephen Davis of being one of the chief sponsors of the terrorist group, Boko Haram.
The totally erroneous basis for that charge was the spurious claim that Senator Sheriff accompanied President Jonathan on his recent trip to Ndjamena as a member of his entourage.
The artiste now wears a new look. Which do you prefer? His old or new look? More pictures below.

According to Sahara Reporters, Taraba State governor Danbaba Suntai, who suffered brain injuries in a 2012 air crash, is stuck in Wellington Hospital in London with his inner circle. The group had hoped to bring him back to Nigeria on September 9, but he has failed to improve sufficiently and appears incapable of governing the state.
Earlier on Thursday, 11 of the 13 members of the executive council wrote to the Taraba House of Assembly asking for an investigation into the medical condition of the governor in order to determine his physical and mental capacity to resume work as governor.
It will be recalled that the Governor was the one flying the aircraft which crashed in 2012. We pray God steps into his boat and heal him.
