A 28 year-old woman, Janet Uduak, has been dragged to a customary court in Lagos by her husband, Kolawole Richard, for using a kitchen knife to slice his manhood when he attempted to sleep with her.
Janet, a mother of one, allegedly carried out the act because her husband demanded for sex against her wish.
The incident, which happened at 19, Jagun Street, Okokomaiko, on the outskirts of Lagos, got Richard seriously injured, causing him to lose his ability to have erection.
Richard is asking the Ijanikin Customary Court to dissolve his marriage with Janet.
He alleged that Janet was violent and does not perform her matrimonial obligations, which include allowing him to have sex with her.
He told the court that he paid N50,000 bride price on Janet at her village in Akwa Ibom State. He said despite marrying her legally, Janet never allows any sexual intimacy between them.
"There is usually trouble in the bedroom anytime I wanted to sleep with her," he said.
Richard, a teacher, from Ondo State, told the court that he is no longer in love with her.
He tendered a photograph of his severed manhood before the court. He also asked the court to grant him the custody of their only daughter.
But the remorseful woman begged for forgiveness, promising that she will fulfil her obligations as a wife including allowing him to have sex any time he wanted.
But Richard insisted that the marriage should be dissolved.
The President of the court, Mr. S. K. Hussain, noted that the relationship has completely broken down.
He consequently dissolved the marriage and ordered Richard to pay Janet N26,000 as alimony.
Wonders shall never end!!!!....i guess we all know the "wolf" this woman fed.
If you were in the man's shoes, will you take her back?

Just had to pop in briefly to share this picture...lol.
You had a bad day, so what? Dust yourself up and try again, as late Aaliyah aptly said.
I think the picture is hilarious (probably because of the guy's facial expression while saying it) and it also conveys the message that as long as there is LIFE, there is HOPE!!!!.

Looking back at my childhood, there were some images that were permanently imprinted in my memory and the picture of Late Rashidi Yekini, the former Super Eagles' striker who died on the 4th of May, 2012 was one of those "permanently" imprinted pictures.
Specifically the image above, i couldn’t and still can’t seem to get it off my mind...maybe it was because NTA was always showing it back then or i had a deep admiration for the late striker.
I would like to choose the latter because even at an early age, i could 'feel" the energy and passion following through Rashidi's veins whenever i watched him on TV.
It's really sad he had to die a sudden and "unexplainable" death, he surely deserved better...my childhood hero deserved all the respect and tribute he merited playing for our Country.
All i can say now, is adieu my childhood hero and i will always treasure the joy and excitement i got from watching you back then.
Adieu My Football Hero.

Meet Nigerian-Born Kate Anolue, The New Mayor of Enfield Council, London
She takes over from Councilor During, who has been in the role for the last year.
The former midwife who hails from Nanka in Anambra State, Nigeria, followed her father’s desire for her to become a nurse and moved to Edmonton more than 20 years ago, starting her training in May 1972, eventually qualifying as a midwife.
She says she has delivered thousands of babies since becoming a midwifery sister at North Middlesex Hospital in 1984, and wants to be a role model for women in her village.
She becomes the second black female Mayor of Enfield, following Councilor During who was the first when she assumed the role.
For the next year, Councilor Anolue will devote most of her time to civic functions and will preside over full council meetings, as well as acting as the returning officer at elections.
She was made a chieftain of the village in recognition of her achievements in Enfield.
She said: “In my village people recognize that I am doing something worthwhile. It is a very real honour and I’m thrilled. I am so proud of this.”
I am indeed very proud to see a Nigerian doing something positive out there and hope it serves as an inspiration to other Nigerians within and outside the country.

A beautiful portrayal of a mother's unconditional love.
Sometimes i wonder why we only celebrate our mothers once in a year, that is not enough :(.
In my own humble opinion, i think mothers should be "honored" each and everyday.
That is why i never hesitate in telling / showing my mom how much i love and adore her whenever i get the opportunity to do so.
Mothers and fathers (not being bias here...lol) deserve all the love and affection we can give and more.
Show some love to your folks.

I just read this lovely message by Pastor Ituah and decided to share it with the World via my "online notice board" :).
"A lot of people do not succeed because they are not motivated and many others are waiting to be motivated by others. Some want to be motivated by their bosses, family, friends or spouses, and a great percentage of the world believes that money is a great motivation. Pete Luongo says "motivation is a personal responsibility, if individuals cannot get out of bed each morning excited about what the day promises, it's no one else's responsibility. Motivate yourself, every morning is a special gift".
So, get up each morning and LIVE.

I guess it's self explanatory, so i won't say much (surprised yeah...lol).
Just stumbled upon the picture on a website and i think it says a lot.
Imagine a World filled with all these "virtues"...it would really be paradise on earth *sighs*.
Oh well, smile...
Whenever i get to use the internet especially search engines like "google" to search for answers or get more info on a research topic, i get amazed and wonder how our forefathers survived without "Technology".
Its amazing how you can just type in "what is the meaning of blogger?", for example and several answers just pop up...feeding your brain with more info than you even asked for (Ajayi no salary...lol).
But its great especially for people like me, who are always eager and looking for more knowledge (yes, am an "Oliver Twist" for knowledge...i always want to learn something new every single day).
But like every good thing, there is always a side effect and in recent times, i have found out that although the World is presently a "Global Village", human interaction is getting more impersonal and distant, the power of face to face communication has been swept under the carpet. Instead people prefer "texting, chatting, tweeting" e.t.c which in some ways shields the connection we all get when we can physically see the gestures and facial expressions of people we are talking to.
