Renowned publicist Egor Efiok who was some days ago involved in an auto crash has recounted how she made it alive and what has become of her wounded arm. Egor who is full of thanks to God took to her Facebook page where she expressed herself and also showed off photos of the healing arm.

This is my arm yesterday. Still very painful and swollen, but it is slowly getting back to shape. I still can't get over the splendid job my ACE Dr Efiok has done. It was in a right mess before I came here. I was initially rushed to a nearby village hospital after the crash and woke up to see a nurse with a baby strapped on her back sewing my arm like a seamstress sewing material and saying, "Aunty please keep ya hand well make I sew am"...with blood everywhere and nothing to numb the area. Sai! I nearly passed out again from the pain.  Continue...

Real Reasons Ini Edo’s Marriage Crashed - Insider Explains

According to an insider who knew Ini Edo and her husband, Philips Ehiagwina back since when they started dating till they got married has said the actress is a good wife, and took a lot of things most women won’t naturally take. The alleged insider also advised the media to always report the truth and stop painting the actress bad. Below is what the insider told Vanguard;

“I think Ini Edo was badly in love. Philips was a charmer and, as a human being and deeply in love, she followed her heart. It is so sad that a woman blessed with such a good heart could be treated in such a hurtful manner. Most people may not know, but Ini Edo is a dedicated and totally committed spouse any man could hope to have. That’s why she endured all she did, for six years without letting the world know the pain she was going through in her marriage.

“Most people do not know that Ini Edo gave up a lot of acting jobs to be with her husband in America and, unlike the widely peddled story that the actress was involved in romantic relationships with other men, for the six years that Ini was married to Philips, she never cheated on him.  Ini Edo adored and loved Philips; she was very fond of him, cooked his meals personally, and was practically splitting her time between two continents, all in her efforts to be a good wife, the insider said.

Tinubu Rubbishes Reports Of Fight Between Him & Fashola, My Relationship With Him Is Intact

For a while now, I have noticed and read many published political stories on Lagos politics in particular and the personalities involved that are either concerted, unsubstantiated, pure conjectures or outright falsehood. In this instance, I reference a recent story ran by a major newspaper concerning my successor and me. There is no doubt political charlatans and enemies are at work fueling unnecessary rumour and insinuations and seeking to drive a wedge in an otherwise cordial and respectful political relationship. My relationship with Governor Fashola remains cordial both at the personal level and at the level of commitment to ensuring Lagos State remains on the path of political stability, growth and development.

Only My Wife Knows The Size Of My John Thomas- Jimmy Jatt Says Amidst Smile

Aww the kind of questions some reporters ask tho. So a Leadership Newspaper reporter wanted Dj Jimmy Jatt to tell us by all means the things his wife knows that we don’t and a smiling Jimmy says his fans already knows everything about him, because he has a book that is already out which explains his life. But the reporter not contended with the reply said, the DJ should tell us something more, then he turned and looked at him and said, ‘do you want me to show you the size of my John Thomas? Only my wife Nike knows that and I will have to ask for her permission first’.

So nice, so Dj Jimmy too is just like Kenneth Okonkwo, the Nollywood actor who has not seen any other lady’s pant since he got married 7 years ago. More of men like this please…
