what I don’t understand is the picture. Are they sure it’s the dead Tunde? If yes then many questions on it. For one, how come the pants are down if he was shot while running or was it that the trouser pulled off as he made the run? Hon Abike Dabiri. Should step in.
The babe stole a BB just on her first day in work today. I met a crowd this evening opposite Santana market Sapele road Benin city and stopped to see what was happening out of curiosity. I was told the babe who was just employed today in a road side phone sales centre made a quick one on the second sales girl and the rest is story. She was disgraced but some guys around and I made a plea to let her go as some most especially other babes were eager to see her stripped. A guy actually had a peep into the content of her bra.
What would make a beautiful young babe steal a phone? Some say she might be possessed. Hmmm! Na only she sabi.
She was fortunate to get only a slap before she was helped into a bus to take her home. Someone even helped her with water to wash her face. She might not be fortunate the next time somewhere else.
The Bible say ” let the stealer steal no more.’

Imagine you are out to eat with your friends and you strike up a conversation with the server/waiter. You learn he is working two jobs to enroll in a part-time course in a school. When he gets home, he will have to put some money down for food for his single mom and younger ones.
Your heart goes out to him. He seems brilliant and energetic, yet underneath the smiles you sense a deep longing for things to be different. You would love to help in some way, but you feel like you can’t afford to. You imagine how exciting it would be if you had an extra N5, 000 or even N10, 000 a month set aside specifically for times like this.
The question now is, how can you increase your ability to give without hurting your own financial situation? After all, you don’t want to do anything financially stupid, like going deep into debt. The answer may lie in building kindness into your budget.
Check out our list of 5 things you can do to give generously without affecting your own budget
1. Set amounts aside for giving in your budget – No matter how small the money might be, write down an amount that you’d like to spend on certain people who are in need and put it into the budget.
2. Donate items from your stash – Do you ever wonder what you might be able to do with all of that free stuff you have received from different owambe parties? You can donate items that you feel others might need, take them to the homeless or motherless babies’ home. Another great idea is to fill a box with old school supplies that your children aren’t using anymore, small toys, toothbrushes, etc. for the children in need in poor areas.
3. Volunteer to serve your community – Your extra little effort to help someone or some organization out can make a world of a difference to them. It’s also a free and enriching activity.
4. Be generous with friends and family – You don’t need to spend a tremendous amount of money in order to give the ideal gift, some ingenuity and dedication will suffice. You can use your talents to create gifts or special gestures.
5. Also, you can be generous with your time. In a fast paced world, time may be the most valuable thing you can give to someone. Make time for your friends and family members and truly be present while you are together. Ditch the cell phones and computers and focus on being together.
Plan ahead! Put money aside for helping others no matter how small. It is smart to be frugal where you can and be generous when you can while staying within your budget!

Pastor Princewill Basil who is standing trial before an FCT High Court over alleged rape of two girls was on Tuesday confronted by a second victim who claimed he raped her countless times. Basil, the General Overseer, Mountain Movers Fire Ministry Church, Nyanya, was arraigned in 2012 for allegedly having unlawful carnal knowledge and impregnating two student- members of his church, aged 14 and 15 years.
Giving evidence under cross-examination by the defence counsel, Mr. Sunday Kekere, the victim said the pastor rape her to “cleanse her spirit of dirt’’.
“I cannot remember the number of times he raped me.
“Papa told me it was a continuous deliverance, and he had to sleep with me to clean all the dirt inside me and also cleanse my future,’’’ she told court.
When asked if in her statement to the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Person (NAPTIP), she admitted living with the accused, she answered `no’.
“I never told them (NAPTIP) that. I told them that I always go there to assist Papa’s former fiancée Cynthia, with household chores.
“There are days that I sleep over to finish my chores,’’ she said.
When asked if the pastor had paid her school fees before, she said: “Papa had once told me during deliverance that he gave my mum N40, 000 for my school fees.’’
“When I asked my mum, she said it was not true,’’ she testified.
The victim alleged that the accused had on some occasions, threatened her with a knife to force her to sleep with him

continuation of testimony.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that at the last sitting of the case on Feb. 11, the first victim told the court that Basil allegedly told her that her father’s wife was trying to kill her and that the Lord told him to perform a quick deliverance on her.
“I agreed for the deliverance to be carried out on me. During the deliverance, he carried a white handkerchief and a bottle of oil and asked me to remove my clothes.
“He also asked me if I was menstruating and I told him no.
“He told me that I was possessed with many evil spirits that had stained my blood, and it will only take my husband to deliver me and I was not married.
“He said that he will carry out the cleansing on me,’’ she said.
The victim testified that the accused led her into his bedroom and asked her to close her eyes, brought his handkerchief and placed it over her head and she became very weak.
The victim, alleged that the accused raped her.
The offences, NAPTIP said, contravened the provisions of Sections 97, 179, 397(B) and 268 of the Penal Code.
If convicted, he is liable to 14 years in prison.
The accused had pleaded not guilty to the
