Akpabio Discharged From National Hospital After Surviving Car Crash

The immediate past Governor of Akwa Ibom State and Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, monday escaped death when he was involved in a ghastly car crash on his way to Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja to join an international flight.

THISDAY learnt that his car ran into a convoy conveying a foreign envoy whose identity has not been determined at the time of filing this report.

He was however discharged at about 6 pm yesterday after he was treated for shock in a private ward of the hospital.

It was gathered that the former governor was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.

It was learnt that the accident occurred when one of the drivers opted to beat the traffic light. However, it was not clear yesterday whether it was Akpabio’s driver or the driver of the ambassador’s pilot car that beat the traffic light which resulted in the accident.

A Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) official, who did not want to be named, told journalists that whereas occupants of the ambassador’s vehicles and Akpabio’s driver did not sustain any injury, the senator suffered a degree of injuries in the chest region.

The FRSC personnel, who was at the scene of the accident which occurred at about 7:25am near Bolingo Hotel, along the Abuja Airport Road in the Central Business District, said Akpabio was immediately rushed to the National Hospital for intensive care.

One of the senator’s aides, who was at the National Hospital, said Akpabio was on his way out of the country to visit his wife and children when the crash occurred.

The Deputy Minority Whip, Senator Biodun Olujimi, who was one of the early callers at the hospital, told journalists that medical personnel at the hospital had informed her that the Akwa Ibom North-west senator was in a stable condition.

But the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel, who was in the hospital to see his predecessor, failed to speak with journalists when he arrived at the hospital at about 12:10pm.

However, the Chief Information Officer of the National Hospital, Rabiah Labaran, told journalists in her office that Akpabio was brought to the hospital by some FRSC officers who rescued him from the scene of the accident.

Labaran said: “He (Akpabio) was brought in this morning after he had a car crash as I learnt. He was brought in from the Bolingo Hotel junction where a vehicle crashed into his own vehicle from behind.

“Lucky enough, when they brought him after the preliminary check–up, it was found out that he did not have any serious injury. He was talking when he was brought in and they gave him the necessary attention at the trauma unit.

“I learnt that as at this afternoon (12:30pm), he was taken to the private wing of the hospital for proper care but there was no serious injury, though it has not been disclosed what kind of injury.

“It is something he can come over in a few days. He is currently recuperating. He was with his driver but the driver did not sustain injury.”

He was discharged last night and sources close to him confirmed that he would yet travel abroad to see his family and go for more medical check up.

News report said the politician and several others sustained injuries.
Akpabio is being treated at the National Trauma Centre of the National Hospital, in the Nigerian capital.
PremiumTimes, quoting a witness, who conveyed Akpabio to the hospital, the accident occurred when the former governor’s convoy broke through a red light along the Airport Road.

PREMIUM TIMES reported that the accident occurred near the Bolingo Junction close to the Ship House, Abuja.

A witness said Mr. Akpabio was moving in a convoy of vehicles towards the City Gate when his vehicle ran into another car.

“My wife and I were coming from the NNPC Mega Station and we stopped at the traffic light by Bolingo Hotel Junction. When the green light showed and we made to move, there was this siren blaring Mercedes Benz jeep that came from the town and almost crashed onto my car. I don’t know how we dodged but another that was behind the jeep hit the car behind me and tumbled on its side.

“I and my wife rushed out of our vehicle and helped the driver bring out his boss. When we brought him out, we found that it was former governor Godswill Akpabio.

“At the time we brought him out, the siren was still blaring. We put him in the other vehicle and he was rushed to the National Hospital.”

The witness said Mr. Akpabio was badly shaken and was in a traumatic condition when he was brought out of the crashed vehicle.


65 Year-Old Landlord Rapes 7 Year Old Girl in Lagos

According to the civil servant mother of the victim, on Monday, August 17, 2015, when she got back from work and was having dinner with her children, Blessings started to touch her crotch and complain of pain.

    “I felt the part she was touching and asked what was wrong with her. I thought she was referring to her lower abdomen and believed it must be stomach ache. But she insisted that it was her private part.

    I asked if she fell down and hurt herself but she simply shook her head. I asked if
    someone hit her there while she was playing with other children in the neighbourhood, she said no. I started suspecting there was something bigger than what she was telling me.

    I pleaded with her to tell me what happened. That was when she told me about what Baba did. I could not contain my anger. I was shocked, angry and sad at the same time that such an old man could do such a thing to my daughter. My daughter had no reason to lie.”

Blessing’s father, a trader from Ebonyi State, works in the Eastern part of the country while his wife and the children live in Lagos because of his wife’s work.

He was in the East when he received a call from his wife about what had happened to their daughter. He told his wife to take a neighbour along to go and confront Baba, who denied everything immediately.

Baba Sani, a landlord who lives on renting out Danfo buses to commercial bus drivers, lives just two houses away from Blessing’s parents.

Blessing, an exuberant, fair complexioned girl, was not shy when PUNCH spoke with her about what Baba Sani did to her.

She explained that the old man usually crossed from his house to fetch water from a tap beside their house. She said:

     “On Friday, my mummy was not around and he came to fetch water (like he normally does). When he was passing in the front of our house, he asked me to follow him to come and collect biscuit.
    “When I got to Baba’s house, he put off my shoes and carried me to his bed. He removed my pants and lay on my chest. When I was shouting, he said I should not shout, that he would give me biscuit and N20.
    “When he finished, I saw blood coming out and Baba used a cloth to clean it. He said I should not tell anybody. He gave me biscuit and N20.”

Shockingly, without Blessing’s mother knowing, Baba Sani allegedly called the girl and raped her again the following day, a Saturday.

To dispel doubts about the girl’s allegation, she was asked to explain the location of Baba Sani’s bedroom inside the building and her description was found to be exact description when Punch eventually paid Baba Sani a visit.

Their correspondent spoke with Baba Sani in company of the director of Esther Child Rights Foundation, Esther Ogwu, who the case was initially reported to by the girl’s parents.

The man, who walked with the gait of someone approaching senility, started off by saying Blessing’s mother was an acquaintance, even though the girl’s mother said she had never had reason to speak to him before. Baba Sani said:

     “The girl’s mother once approached me about a month ago to lend her N500. She sent her daughter to collect it and I gave it to them. Later, the girl with her younger sister came to my house that Friday to ask for money and I gave them N20.

    I did not do anything. I don’t know anything about what they have accused me of. God is my witness. I am just surprised about why I am the one the girl is accusing of such a thing.”

When asked how the girl could possibly know where his bedroom was in the house, the old man said he had no idea.

Blessing’s mother said she had many other co-tenants and neighbours and said she couldn’t have imagined asking Baba Sani to lend her any money.

A test conducted at the Mirabel Sexual Assault Referral Centre at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos, confirmed that the girl was indeed raped as lacerations on her private part were consistent with sexual assault.

The case was reported at the Gowon Estate Police Division.

Ogwu explained that she was disappointed that initially the police did not handle the case as if they were interested in prosecuting the man. She said rather than charge him to court, they released him from custody despite the fact that they had got the report of the test conducted on the girl.

The child rights activist said:

    “According to the information I was given, the man was pretending that he was insane when he was arrested. Everybody in the neighbourhood could testify that nothing was wrong with him.
    “It should not be too hard to enforce the law in this case. The Child Rights Act is there. It is unfortunate that the mother of the child did not monitor her daughter well. There are so many young children in that neighbourhood that could have been victims of the man.”

Baba Sani was arraigned before an Ikeja family court on charges of defilement and child abuse on Monday. He was remanded in prison custody while the case was adjourned till September 4, 2015.

Right or Wrong? Lecturer Removes Cheat Material from Female Student's Underwear in an Exam Hall

A lecturer at the Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka, reportedly put his hands into the underwear of a female final year student of the institution who was cheating in an examination over the weekend.

Student Pulse gathered from a Leadership report that the incident happened last Friday when students of the institution’s department of Library and Information Science were writing an examination for a course called ‘Entrepreneurship and Information Services’.

The lecturer, identified as Sylvester had found the student, identified only as Oghenero, cheating and forcefully removed the incriminating material from her underwear.

It was reported that the Oghenero had refused to hand over the material as requested by the lecturer, who reacted by dipping his hands into her underwear inside the examination hall after a brief shouting match.

In some countries, Okiemute's intervention may be seen as a case of sexual assault.

Reports say there have been several cases of examination malpractices since the institution began its examinations.

Kanye West Set To Run For President in 2020

Kanye West Set To Run For President in 2020While accepting the Video Vanguard Award during Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West said he felt “conflicted” about interrupting Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMAs.

“I think, ‘If I had to do it all again, what would I have done?'” mused West, while accepting the annual VMA for overall excellence in music videos.

Later in his speech, he came to this conclusion: “I just wanted people to like me more. But [forget] that, bro! [In] 2015, I will die for the art, for what I believe in. And the art ain’t always gonna be polite.”

Swift, who would win in several major categories (including Video of the Year) Sunday night, presented West with the Video Vanguard Award. She had been at a similar podium six years ago, when West protested her VMAs win for Best Female Video.

“I have been a fan of his, since I can remember, because Kanye defines what is to be a creative force in music, fashion and, well, life,” Swift said Sunday, moments before West took the stage. “So, I guess I have to say to all the other winners tonight: I’m really happy for you, and I’mma let you finish, but Kanye West has had one of the greatest careers of all time!”

Seated next to wife Kim Kardashian West, the rapper grinned during Swift’s tribute and thanked her for being “gracious,” then adopted a more serious tone. He cited some of the turmoil he’s experienced over the past six years, including being booed by tens of thousands of fans at a sporting event.

“You know how many times MTV ran that footage again, ’cause it got them more ratings?” West asked. “You know how many times they said Taylor was going to give me the [Vanguard] award, because it got them more ratings? I still don’t understand award shows.”

He lightened the mood from time to time, admitting to the crowd how he’d “smoked something” before his speech to knock “the edge off,” and encouraged artists to express what they feel in the moment.

At the end of his speech, West spoke of even loftier aspirations. “As you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided, in 2020, to run for president,” said West, who then dropped his mic.

Stunning Photo: Asa Shows Off New Look

Asa Shows Off New LookTalented singer Asa showed off her new look in this photo taken by photographer and singer TY Bello.

TY shared the photo on Instagram and wrote:

I get really excited when ever I’m asked to shoot an artist.. I know I don’t know what I’m going to do … Not in the least … This makes me really … really nervous…and I love it.

I let the nerves take over till I can’t take it any more.. Then I pace around the studio to counter it… I do what ever I need to .. Till my mind gets from nerves… To peace and finally , but more importantly to PLAYFUL…then I LISTEN.I give myself permission to run with the thoughts that come to me .. No matter how silly or mundane they sound. I’ve learnt to trust the Voice.

With Asa .. The Words were ..FLY .., SOAR.., BLOOM. I knew the Voice was right when she started to dance to ‘No worries ‘ by @nosaalways . Or when she stood ghostly still … As if in anticipation of ‘something ‘when she wore more structured clothes.

Asa is a true artist. I know this.. I knew this the very first time I saw her eleven years ago..She’s the real deal.

It was a beautiful surprise for me looking back at her images as I edited ,when I realized that the flowers that I put behind her at the shoot to represent her blooming actually looked like wings. .. Like budding wings .. And sooo…. The Voice is right again..Asa is in bloom.., ready to take off. ….Yet again #tybellophotography #riasolanke #photostories #music #iconic vanity.”

Must Read: Celine Dion Reveals Husband’s Final Wish

Celine Dion’s husband, René Angélil is battling throat cancer and his final wish is to be with the singer when he passes away.

Recalling their conversation, she said: “I’ll say, ‘You’re scared? I understand. Talk to me about it.’
“And René says to me, ‘I want to die in your arms.’ OK, fine, I’ll be there, you’ll die in my arms.”“He can’t eat so I feed him,” she said. “He’s got a feeding tube. I have to feed him three times a day.”

However, on his instructions, she has returned to Las Vegas for her residency despite it “freaking” him out when she’s not at home with him.

She added to USA Today: “Don’t forget, he’s been the leader of the band all my life. So it [hacks] him off to not see me all day and over here working. But he wants me to do this, do the show, do the interviews. But he freaks when I’m not home with him, too …

“I didn’t want to be here at first, I don’t need it. Don’t get me wrong, I love singing for people, but I have priorities. But René really gave me a gift.

“All my grieving, it was during this last year. I think I’ve got this. For now. When it hits me, it’s going to hit me. But my biggest job is to tell my husband, we’re fine. I’ll take care of our kids. You’ll watch us from another spot.”
