Firefighters freed the pet after hearing a dog bark more than a week after an earthquake struck the area.

At the end of the day, I don’t think it is necessary to pay too much attention to it. Continue....
A public appeal for funds to treat of a victim of ovarian cancer, Mayowa Ahmed, generated more than N80 million a few days after the campaign was launched through the efforts of Nollywood actress, Toyin Aimakhu, and Miss Aramide Kasumu, the director of Lifestake Foundation, a Lagos-based non governmental organisation (NGO). The idea was to raise funds for a surgery that would be carried out on Mayowa in a hospital in Atlanta, United States of America.
Nigerians, big and small, rose to the challenge and contributed generously to the #GoFundMe campaign such that about N82 million was raised within a short time But Mayowa’s ugly story would later turn uglier as efforts to save her life was later enmeshed in controversy, following Aimakhu’s alleged declaration in the social media that the fund raiser was a scam.
The police, who intervened in the matter and froze the account where the sum raised was deposited, after investigating the allegations the two parties levelled against each other, described the controversy as a mere misunderstanding.
Nicholas Chamberlain, 52, has been with his partner for many years and added that they are in a 'faithful' and 'loving' relationship.
He was ordained last year by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, 60, who added that he was aware about his sexuality.
Bishop Chamberlain made the disclosure when he spoke to the Guardian and added that he didn't want to make 'a big thing' about coming out.
But on Friday, as he was being paraded before journalists at the Lagos State Police Command Headquarters in Ikeja, he was no longer a “spiritual daddy” but a suspect who harboured 13 underaged girls as sex slaves in a three-bedroomed harem.
Fair complexioned and soft-spoken, Nwocha did not come across as someone capable of such crime. When he started to talk about what he did before journalists, he started by saying “By His Grace,” a statement that elicited a laugh of derision from all present.
According to Nwocha, it all started when the children in his church, who called him, “Daddy, daddy” told him they would like to visit him.
The original plan was to burn the Biafran flag on October 1, 2016, but the groups — Re-branded Indigenous People of Biafra (TRIPOB) and Renegade Indigenous People of Biafra (RENIPOB) — have jettisoned that, and will instead surrender “the defunct Republic of Biafra flag on the symbolic date of January 15, 2017″ to the Nigerian government at the Eagle Square Abuja.
The chosen date, January 15, 1970, was the day the Nigerian Civil War, also known as the Biafran War, ended.
In a statement they released on Friday, TROPOB and RENIPOB nominated Charles Okah, who is in Kuje prison and is standing trial on the allegation of masterminding the 2010 Independence Day bombing, as their “leader” to handle the surrender.

The incident which happened at 8pm was said to have been perpetrated by the robbers, who were dressed in Police uniforms.
An eyewitness told Vanguard that the bandits had blocked the expressway forcing motorists to a halt in an attempt to carry out their act.
However, the eyewitness said the convoy of the state governor which was close to the scene at that moment, engaged the robbers in a fire fight which eventually saved the day.

Saturday Vanguard cornered her shortly after her husband got the endorsement of over 40 men of God across the state and women groups across the 18 Local Government of the state Thursday. When asked about her view on child trafficking in the state she said:
“Before we castigate our daughters who are engaging in trafficking or travelling to Italy, I think we should first sit down and ask why the situation is like that, it cannot happen like that. The obvious reason to me is that previous governments have failed in Edo state. It is the failure of government that caused it. People leave the country to go to another country in search of greener pastures. A child who is comfortable in his father’s house will not leave for another man’s house. Continue...
