RESIDENTS SCOOP REFINED PETROL FROM THEIR WATER WELLS IN EJIGBO LAGOS STATE. LONG before last week, residents of Tunde Alabi Street and its adjoining areas in Ejigbo, a suburb of Lagos in the Ejigbo Local Council Development Area (LCDA), had lived in peace, unaware of the danger waiting to explode around their homes. But the peace in the neighbourhood was shattered after the discovery of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), popularly known as petrol, in some wells in the area. Even before the dust generated by the discovery could settle down, another hail of fresh dust was raised on Tuesday, August 27, 2013, when a troop of armed and stern looking security men, comprising soldiers and men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), stormed the area in search of homes with large deposits of petroleum in their wells in the sleepy community. Some of the bewildered residents stood in groups, discussing the strange find, while some others peeped from their windows as they watched in am…
TARABA STATE; GOVERNOR SUNTAI'S MEN PLOT TO IMPEACH ACTING GOVERNOR. The crisis in Taraba State might worsen following the alleged plot to remove the Acting Governor of the state, Alhaji Garba Umar. But a pressure group, Taraba Justice Forum, yesterday pleaded with President Goodluck Jonathan to intervene in the constitutional challenge facing the state. Investigation by our correspondent revealed that loyalists of Governor Danbaba Suntai have perfected plans to remove the Acting Governor. It was learnt that the pro-Suntai men have been alleging that Umar is disloyal to his principal. They also claimed that the Acting Governor had lobbied the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and some forces in the presidency to remove the governor.

They accused Umar of voting for Governor David Jang during the election of the Nigeria Governors’ F…

I HAD A SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH BIANCA. Who is fooling and lying to the Nigerian public between Femi Fani-Kayode and Bianca Ojukwu? Few weeks back, a magazine had quoted Bianca Ojukwu as saying that the relationship between she and Fani-Kayode was not meant to be, that’s why they broke up. But now Bianca is claiming, through her lawyers, that she don’t know who Fani-Kayode is and has never dated him before, either openly or secretly. She has threatened to sue him. In his reaction to Bianca’s “denial”, Fani-Kayode said: He sympathises with her delicate situation and once again he expresses his regrets about the fact that he expose their once sweet love affair in his harmless write up. But what he can’t understand is why his former lover will be denying ever knowing him. He just can’t understand! Consequently, Fani-Kayode has instructed his own lawyers to meet Bianca’s lawyers in court if they so wish to take the matter that far, after he has said ‘sorry’ for revealing their affair. We…
DESPERATE SYRIANS FLEE AMID EXPECTED US MILITARY STRIKE. AS UN inspectors left Syria, they were followed out of the war-torn country by a continuous flow of families desperate to flee the threat of US strikes. Cars filled with weary-looking passengers, their open boots packed to the brim with bags and suitcases crossed the Masnaa border post in a constant, though not massive, exodus as a US intervention over a suspected gas attack appeared increasingly imminent. The threat of strikes on Syrian army targets in Damascus and surrounding areas seemingly became more likely as UN inspectors probing last week's alleged gas attack left Syria and flew out of Lebanon early Saturday. The 13 UN inspectors, led by Ake Sellstrom, are now believed to have arrived in the Netherlands, where samples they collected in Syria are expected to be repackaged and sent to laboratories around Europe. The goal will be to check them for traces of poison gas that may have been unleashed during a bombardment of …

Fertility Clinics: Lagosians Make Money Selling Sperm For N50,000 People get married for different reasons. While some seek companionship in marriage, many go into marriage for procreation.  For couples who look forward to having children immediately after marriage, being declared ‘infertile’ by experts is like a death sentence. While it is generally agreed that it takes two to have a baby and every couple is expected to be in optimum health to have babies, medical experts claim men are having more fertility challenge now.  Sperm concentration in men is said to have decreased by a third since 1990s while sperm count is said to have decreased by half over the past 50 years.  Studies are also showing genetic abnormalities in sperm particularly in older men. For men therefore, quantity, quality and motility of spermatozoa are seen as important factors in fertility.  Since the male factor is a prominent cause of infertility in couples, sperm donation has become vital in assisted conception…
