A Cleveland police officer who climbed onto the hood of a car and fired repeatedly at its unarmed occupants in 2012 was acquitted of manslaughter on Saturday by an Ohio judge.
The trial of the officer, Michael Brelo, played out amid broader questions about how the police interact with African-Americans and use force, in Cleveland and across the country.
Officer Brelo was one of several officers who shot at Timothy Russell and his passenger, Malissa Williams, during a chase through the Cleveland area on Nov. 29, 2012. Police officers fired 137 rounds at the car, prosecutors have said, including 49 by Officer Brelo.
Other officers stopped firing after Mr. Russell’s Chevy Malibu was surrounded by the police and came to a stop, but prosecutors said Officer Brelo climbed onto the car’s hood and fired at least 15 rounds from close range, including the fatal shots.
OMG this is so serious…. I pray things go the right way and not the other way round. Read a statement signed by Senator Kashamu’s spokesperson, Austin Oniyokor about the ongoing incident after the cut.
UPDATE: NDLEA operatives who stormed the home of Buruji Kashamu, will now be waiting till Monday, to get a warrant of arrest. The officers who are still at his Lekki home didn’t come with any and that has made it impossible for them to arrest the senator-elect. Reports have however said they will be laying siege till Monday to get a warrant arrest.
Kashamu’s lawyers will also be going to court to challenge the move, according to Buruji’s media aide, Austin Oniyokor.
The Chairman of Ijebu-Ode Local Government Council, Razzak Olukemi Daddah has however called on the police to put more effort in rescuing him and also arrest the kidnappers.

Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have surrounded the residence of Ogun State Senator-elect, Buruji Kashamu, Channels Tv reports this morning.
The drug law enforcement agency is said to be set to extradite the Ogun State born politician to the United States of America to answer drug related accusations proffered against him.
It will be recalled that Kashamu had dragged the inspector-general of police and 11 others before a Federal High court sitting in Lagos, asking it to enforce his fundamental human right to freedom of movement. He has also been accusing former president Olusegun Obasanjo in the pages of newspaper that he has been the one calling for his head. Eyah.
Our dear President, please permit me to write my last epistle to you as our leader and Commander-in-Chief. By this time next week, I expect you to have flown back to Yenagoa via Port Harcourt. How I wish I could have the opportunity of being on that last trip, not to mock you but to capture your swinging moods in those few moments of realising that the end has come eventually. I would love to know how many of your big friends would take the pain to follow you or if most would abandon you to your fate and move on pronto to the new brides. Even as a writer with what I believe is vivid imagination, I’m not able to paint a picture of the sort of life or future that awaits you in Otuoke, Yenagoa, Abuja, Chad, Germany, Dubai or wherever you decide to hibernate in the short or long run.

I mean we have been together for 5yrs now and he has never cheated on me till date cos he doesn’t belong to that school of thought and ofcos i snoop alot.
He has not changed towards me but this attitude is really disturbing me. All of a sudden he is interested in looking at naked girls with big asses. Even when he gets home from work and I am asleep he visits these sites late in the night. Me I am just a curvy slim lady, no big ass but normal for my stature. All in all he doesn’t know I am aware of this. Please what should i do?

When we started dating, she told me of how she would like to honour our relationship by not having sex before marriage. Although, she told me that she is not a virgin. I accepted because well I am 32 and she is 25 and I am "desperate" to get married.
Some how along the line of our relationship after we had our formal introduction, we got carried away and we agreed to have sex.
It was then and there I noticed that my fiancee had very tiny boobs and her behind is flat. All the while, she has been wearing stuffed bra and butt to accentuate the stuff. I really like this babe, but I am not sure I can stand a girl with small boobs especially. My parents are pressuring me to get married plus we've had our introduction. I don't want to cheat on my wife in marriage!

“I can’t live with a woman that is promiscuous, sleeping around, troublesome and does not have any regard for me,” he said.

The University College Hospital, (UCH), Ibadan, Oyo State, has carried out a mass burial for many unclaimed corpses in its mortuary after running three adverts in the pages of newspapers at three different occasions with deadlines for the bodies to be claimed, when the mortuary became congested. But even after the adverts, no one still came forward to claim them.
According to the hospital spokesman, Deji Bobade, it is believed that most of the corpses were abandoned due to the culture that says that “parents should not bury their children.”
Most of the corpses buried where between the ages 1-50 and had been abandoned in the mortuary since 2012.
Mr Bobade however says the decision of the management to perform the mass burial was within the purview of the law.
