Is the UK Govt 'Forcefully Adopting' A Nigerian Child? Father Pleads To Know The Truth

A Nigerian man, Ayo Bakre has raised an alarm over the curious illegal detention and absurd adoption of his young son in the United Kingdom.

According to Bakre, the issue started in 2012 when his wife, Shade travelled to London with their son Monisola, who was less than one year old then. Since their departure five years ago, the story has taken bizarre turns in what ended in an unjust, if illegal  'adoption by the UK government' under the pretext that the mother could not take care of the child. Now the UK government is about to deport the mother to Nigeria but without her child.

Ayo Bakre who has two other children with Shade (Moyosore and Morolayo), told Osun Defender that  "Sade had travelled to London on holiday in 2012 with Monisola who was less than 12 months then. While in London, Monisola got injured and was taken to an hospital for treatment but the social workers claimed the degree of the injury is non-accidental. Because of this, the mother was charged to court for attempted murder, child trafficking, etc. but she was subsequently cleared of this by the court in Bromley.

Nah... Usher Still Won't Speak On Herpes Allegations

Whats up with Usher and R.Kelly tho. So many allegations and the two still wouldn't speak up? LOL. Usher was clearly focusing on his salad when a photog asked him about several lawsuits accusing him of having sex with people without disclosing he allegedly had genital herpes.

Usher was chowing down at Alfred Coffee in WeHo with Jermaine Dupri when mum was clearly the word.  That, they made clear. Lol.

Jermaine is producing a new Usher album as we earlier reported and the 2 have been in the studio seemingly undeterred from the various allegations.

Neither Usher nor his reps till now have publicly addressed the allegation.

Charly Boy Writes Biafrans A Deep Letter

I know some of my Igbo brothers and sisters are not happy with me simply because I have not used My Brand as CharlyBoy to advocate for the clamor of The Biafran state.

However, like I always say, there is more than one way to achieve a purpose. Though I may disagree with my Igbo brothers and sisters on the choice of rhetorics and methodology, our objectives are to a large extent identical because we all want to bring an end to the marginalisation of the common peoples, by the evil cabals who are holding Nigeria to a ransom and getting away with their obnoxious impunity and criminality.

Those who truly know and have followed me know that I am not a Group soul and I have always dared to follow the path least traveled in the continuous struggle to add value to my environment.
