Tragedy struck in the Oshodi area of Lagos State on Tuesday after a truck belonging to the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Church lost control, killing and injuring many people.
Many eyewitnesses at the scene gave conflicting reports of the number of people killed and wounded in the accident.
The number of the dead ranged between 12 and 20. But police authority confirmed that only six people died, while five people were wounded.
However, the News Agency of Nigeria reported that the Oshodi Unit Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Mr. Samuel Ogundayo, said 19 people were involved in the accident, adding that eight of them died.
It was learnt that among the dead was an unidentified pregnant woman, whose foetus was also crushed in the accident
PUNCH Metro learnt that the truck, which was laden with sand, was heading towards Mile 2 area when it experienced a brake failure.
A newspaper vendor on the Oshodi Oke Bridge, Michael Okafor, told our correspondent that the truck ran into bystanders at the Oshodi Motor Park.
Okafor said, “Around 11.30am, many people were standing at the part of the motor park, where Mile 2 buses park when the truck just ran into them. The truck also ran into some of the vehicles there. So many people were crushed and blood was all over the place.
“The driver immediately ran away, but he was later arrested by policemen from Makinde Police Station.”
The couple specially invited the juju musician after they met him last year.The traditional wedding is set to hold on Saturday, November 23, 2013 at The Ark Vicinity located on Okunade Bluewater Zone off Remi Olowude Street, Lekki. The white wedding will hold in the Maldives in February.“The Wedding Company’’, the same company that organised the weddings of Bella Adenuga and Basket Mouth is organising.
A student of the Lagos State University, Kabiru Mohammed has been arrested for his involvement with a robbery gang whom he hired to steal $383,000 or N61 million from his father, a bureau de change operator at Murtala Muhammed International Airport.
The suspect confessed to hiring a notorious armed robber, Abiodun Ogunjobi aka Godogodo to rob his father of the sum of money. Mohammed is in the custody of the Special Anti Robbery Squad in Ikeja.
He said, “My father is a bureau de change operator at the airport. I am the one who arranged a seven-man armed robbery gang led by Godogodo to rob my older brother, Ibrahim who was carrying my father’s money amounting to $383,000.
“I told the gang that my father had dollars. The first operation was when Ibrahim wanted to convey money from local airport to international airport, I called Godogodo and gave him the car number plate and the colour of the car. I told them not to kill my brother, but to shoot into the air. I knew my brother would release the money because my father told us not to drag money with armed robbers. They collected $350,000 and gave me only two bundles which is $20,000
“In the second operation they stopped my brother in front of Air Force Bus Stop and collected $33,000 and they gave me $8,000.”
The suspect is also a member of the gang and follows them on some operations.
“I am a member of the robbery gang. My role is to find targets and also information which I give to the gang. That is why they call me ‘Target man’.”
He said he spent his share of the loot on building a mosque in Kano and buying 17 rams for the less privileged.
Today, we take a look at the mistakes women make in their sex lives. Today, I present to you another female sex-pert in the person of Vivian Etema and I am sure you will enjoy her. Here we go!
Ladies, we have to be honest here: when our sex life becomes a little dull, we tend to have a mental catalogue of all the ways our partner isn’t quite measuring up. Guys tend to get a bad rap when it comes to understanding women’s bodies and what turns us on, making them easy targets in the blame game when sexual satisfaction starts to wane. And sure, they make their fair share of bedroom errors. But as the saying goes, it takes two to tango. As it turns out, top sex and relationship experts say that women make plenty of sex mistakes of their own. Here’s what I have come to realize as the 6 most common mistakes women make in the bedroom and what you can do to get the satisfaction you so rightly deserve.
Many of us worry about lady-like behavior. We don’t want to appear pushy or come on too strong for fear of being labeled aggressive and this is one of the greatest mistakes we make when it comes to sex. Most guys feel like they are always the initiator and that sets up disequilibrium on the passion scale in the relationship. Generally, men want to be pursued by their partners just as much as women do. Holding onto outdated ideas about sex roles also inhibits satisfaction with our sexual relationships. If you are one of those who think women are less interested in sex, then you are wrong because women who are as interested in sex as men. Show your interest by taking the first step from time to time. Your partner will likely appreciate it, and you may find a new level of satisfaction in taking responsibility for your sexual experience.
2. Worrying About What You Look Like
Thinking about how you look during sex stops you from enjoying yourself and this ruins your chances of achieving an orgasm. Don’t think about the fat on your belly or the makeup on your face, rather, concentrate on the pleasure of the act. You must give yourself permission to have an orgasm. Men want their wives to abandon themselves in sex play, and that’s not likely if you are anxious about your physical concerns. In truth, some men don’t notice half the things women are obsess about anyway. Men are much more attracted to women who show signs of health and youth and fertility. Rather than worry about the shape of your waist and hips, worry about your energy level and enthusiasm and interest in him.
3. Assuming Sex Is Casual for a Man
This is another old fashioned way of thinking that inhibits women’s ability to enjoy sex as much as they would want to. They tend to believe that women are not sexual or that sex is just sex to men. For some men, sex is a very important act, so don’t minimize it. Both men and women find sexual intimacy in the context of a committed relationship to be more satisfying. Numerous research studies make it very clear that the people who have the best quality and most frequent sex are married couples. That says a lot about the inadequacies of ‘casual sex.’ Never assume that your man is not romantic as this could also prevent you from enjoying sex.
4. Believing He’s Always Up for Sex
Sure, most teenage boys are ready and willing, just about any time you ask, but that is not true for men. The pressures of everyday life – family, work, bills – can zap a man’s libido. This comes as a big surprise to many women, and often, his lack of interest in sex is something we take personally. It comes as such a shock to women that you just don’t believe the reaction many women have when their partner says they aren’t in the mood for sex. They know themselves that they are not always interested in sex but they still love the man. But when they discover he doesn’t want to have sex, they think, ‘he doesn’t love me,’ ‘he is seeing another woman,’ and such thoughts but I can tell you it is not totally true. He may not just want to have sex at that time and that does not mean he is ‘cutting any show’ outside.
5. Not Giving Him Guidance
Talking very directly about sex, what we like and don’t like, can make us feel uncomfortable, even with a partner we’ve been with for a long time and otherwise feel close to, but it’s the only way to achieve a satisfying sexual relationship. A woman must take responsibility for her sexual encounter because no man can bring a woman to orgasm if she doesn’t take responsibility for her sexual experience. Even the best lover can’t know what she needs without her letting him know. The good news is that men very much want to please women, so if you can tell them in a way that doesn’t kill their ego, they will appreciate it.
6. Getting Upset When He Suggest Something New
This is very true of some women I have had the opportunity of counselling. After a couple has been together for a while, it is natural to want to spice things up with a little variety. Just because your man wants to try something new doesn’t mean he’s unhappy with you or your sex life. In short, don’t take it personally. Though I am not insinuating that you should ever feel obligated to do something they don’t want to do in the personal and intimate area of sexuality. But if your man asks you about trying something that’s outside of your morals, make it clear that it’s off limits for you and explain why. Of course, do this in a loving way as best you can. If it is something that is not really a moral issue for you but you still don’t want to, again explain why. But on the whole, you should try it out first and if you are not comfortable with it, you should let him know lovingly.
