Nigeria Radio Station Shuts Down Activities Due To Fuel Scarcity.

The struggle is real!
A reputable radio station in Lagos, Nigeria, shut down it's activities earlier than usual today due to fuel scarcity.  The station normally works 24/7 and due to the fuel scarcity that Nigerians have been facing for some days now, the station which has been working with diesel due to lack of electricity had to shut down earlier than usual.

If this problem is not resolved, the country's economy might be reduced to zero in no time. A country like Nigeria where companies depend on fuel for their operations due to lack of electricity, these very few companies will be forced to shut down if care is not taken. Nigeria stands to lose the very few companies left in it to her neighbouring country.

A Nigerian criminal in London jail has been denied Nigerian nationality to enhance his deportation. (Video)

A Nigerian notorious gang leader who has been in jail since 2009, has been denied Nigerian Nationality. He was rejected by the Nigerian High Commission who said he isn't a Nigerian and not eligible for a Nigerian passport that would enhance his deportation back to Nigeria even though he speaks a Nigerian dialect.
I'm sure you would understand their point after reading through and watching the video. There are more than enough criminals to deal with in Nigeria and we surely don't need more of them. lol
According to Daily Mail

A notorious gang ‘general’ who poses a ‘serious threat to the public’ could be back on Britain’s streets within months because ministers have failed to have him deported.

Joland Giwa, whose street name is Dexter, led a campaign of terror on the streets of Croydon, South London, and is ready ‘at any time to use knives and weapons’, police say.

In a gangster-style YouTube video, he is seen boasting about having stabbed a man ‘in the f****** head’ and threatening to attack other gangs who intrude on his territory.

Use A Mobile Phone While Driving And Go To Jail - FRSC Warns.

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has announced a newly adopted strategy that would ensure that any person caught using the mobile phone while driving, would no longer be fined but immediately taken to court and jailed.

Corp Marshal, FRSC, Mr. Osita Chidoka said other offences like speed driving, dangerous overtaking and overloading would equally attract court action instead of the usual fines.

The FRSC boss, who was speaking at a news conference in Abuja, said these new measures are part of a newly launched campaign to reduce the increased spate of road crashes in the country.

Commercial bus drivers are now expected to install speed limit devices in their vehicles so they henceforth should not exceed 100km per hour.

National President of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) however admitted that some drivers are guilty of the aforementioned road accident causing crimes.

The FRSC says it is partnering with several organizations including oil companies to fulfill its promise to make Nigerian roads one of the safest in the world by the year 2020.

Nigeria Police strikes again at what they know how to do best.

The Nigeria Police is a total mistake and disappointment. The policemen from Textile Mill Road Division in Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria, ran from a crime scene yesterday where a man was wrongly accused by okada(Bike) riders and mobbed for kidnapping four children who happened to be his own children.

What is the purpose of the Police if they can't protect the people? This is what happens when a nation is a failed nation.

Naija police sabi run....SMH

Nollyweird/Politics: RMD on the run after embezzling N50Million - EFCC.

Philo Nkem Ajufo, the acting General Manager of Delta State Tourism Board, has been detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja over her role in a financial scheme. Ms. Ajufo is reportedly being quizzed for conniving with her boss, Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD), to embezzle N50 million from the state Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Mr. Mofe Damijo, a well known Nollywood star, is the commissioner in charge of the ministry. Our EFCC said the commissioner was also being sought by the anti-corruption agency, but he has been elusive.

An EFCC source confirmed Ms. Ajufo’s arrest. “As we talk, the Delta State Tourism GM, one Mrs. Nkem Ajufo, is been held in our headquarters here in Abuja over her involvement in the N50 million fraud. Her boss, Mr. Richard Mofe Damijo, is not left out but as we speak he is still avoiding us,” said the source.

Two sources at the ministry told our reporter that the EFCC last week delivered a letter inviting Ms. Ajufo to appear at their headquarters. She was reportedly asked to bring along relevant documents concerning the N50 million that was meant for the purported 2007 Delta Expo event which never held.

The sources disclosed that Mr. Mofe Damijo went underground on learning about the current development.

Nollywood loses another great actor. Veteran actor Justus Esiri dies at71.

Nollywood movie industry has been hit with another sudden death and it’s veteran actor Justus Esiri.

He passed way on Monday night after a short-time battle with an undisclosed ailment in his hometown.

Few months ago, Nigerian singer and Mavin record member, Dr Sid introduced Justus Esiri as his father. Dr Sid real name is Onoriode Esiri, he is the youngest child of the deceased.

As at the time of this report, no detail has been released regarding Justus Esiri’s death but it is a shock to everybody as the family only released this few hours ago.

A source said the now late Justus Esiri has been secretly battling an age related illness for a while but his family chose to make it a secret until his sudden demise Monday night at the age of 71.

Last year over four top Nollywood stars including Pete Eneh and Enebeli Elebuwa died.

Pete Eneh died of untreated leg infection on November 15, 2012 at a private hospital in Enugu while Enebeli Elebuwa died of stroke on the 4th of December 2012 at a private hospital in New Delhi, India.

Just this last week two Nollywood actors died tragically. A source who claimed the angel of death has visited Nollywood might be proven true with the sudden demise of top Nigerian movie stars one after the other within the past 12 months.
