Donald Trump has to yet find someone or
something he can't criticize, especially if it
is a woman he has not slept with yet. In a
series of Tweets addressing the Kate
Middleton topless photos controversy,
Donald says that Kate is great, but that she
should not be "sunbathing nude," and only
had herself to blame. Uh huh. He also says
the photographer did nothing wrong and
that of course someone is going to take the
chance to make a lot of money for those
photos. Donald is probably just wishing
that he could get someone interested
enough to take his photos topless. He might
even be willing to go full frontal if he could
be promised worldwide coverage. He
would love to show off his downstairs
comb over if you know what I mean.

A Florida man was arrested the other day
after a farm worker called police to say that
he saw Carlos Romero (above) naked next
to Carlos' donkey and appeared to be
having sex with it. Carlos told the police he
was not having sex with the donkey but
that he gets aroused when around animals
and did get naked and has masturbated
five or six times with the donkey. Carlos
also told the police that people in Florida
are backwards because they frown on
"zoophillia." Is that even a word? Carlos
said that he paid $500 for his donkey and
he would like him back. I bet he would. The
sad thing is even if the police find a home
for this donkey which they are doing, this
guy will just get another.

how Daily Mail reported it.
A Spanish firm
offering a professional course in
prostitution which it says 'guarantees a job
offer on graduation,' has survived its first
legal challenge to be closed down.
For €100, students are taught the history
of the world's oldest profession, how to
use erotic toys and the most popular
positions contained within the Kama Sutra.
The school began advertising the course in
May, but within weeks the Valencian
regional government filed a case with
prosecutors, alleging that the school
promoted prostitution, which is illegal in
But yesterday prosecutors said there was
not any evidence that a criminal offence
had been committed because
advertisements for students did not
promote prostitution, constitute fraud and
were not aimed at minors, reported The
The venture has attracted much criticism in
the predominantly Catholic country, with
many saying it is the wrong way to tempt
cash-strapped Spaniards back into work.
But the Valencian firm, which flooded the
city's university campus with promotional
flyers, says it will make the trade safer.
It will also ensure budding sex-workers will
not fall foul of the law, with in depth
descriptions of the industry's laws and
how to work around them.
Brandon, who has run the one-week
course for eight years, said: 'They will
know what they are getting in to.
'Prostitution is a career that many people
live off from day to day, whether they are
single or have a partner.'
He added that 95 people, from the age of
19 to 45, had signed up to the diploma -
which takes up two hours each day.

I don’t live in Lagos so I cannot say for
sure what LASTMA really represents
beside their constitutional role of
ensuring sanity on Lagos roads by
enforcing traffic regulations. But recent
happenings seem to suggest they have
taken up an unconstitutional role of
assaulting traffic offenders and even
the innocent ones alike, collecting illegal
‘tolls’/fines like the Nigerian Police wont
to and turning themselves into some
sort of terror that must be dreaded. This
is not to ignore the fact that they have
not been performing their duties well as
there must always be one or two cases
of misconduct here and there.
Eye witness reports reaching us indicate
that LASTMA officials allegedly assaulted
a bus driver so badly at Town Planning,
Lagos a few hours ago. Due to the
severity of the beatings, the conductor
rushed the driver to Gbagada hospital
only for the driver to be confirmed
dead on arrival by medical personnel
Sympathizers who had already gathered
at the hospital premises almost
started a mini riot if not for the timely
intervention of men of the Nigerian
Police. As at the time of this filing this
report, sympathizers are reportedly
heading towards Alausa with placards
reading “LASTMA, come and carry your
dead body” among other slogans.
Excuse me please, but is this the same
LASTMA that Lagos state Governor just
last week, threatened to withdraw their
services from Lagos roads for a day so
that Lagosians will realize their
importance? Maybe he should o! We
don’t need ‘killers’ and ‘marauders’
masquerading as law enforcement
May the soul of the yet-to-be identified
driver rest in perfect peace. Enough of
all this nonsense!

Fresh facts emerged yesterday that the
woman who gave birth to a horse-like
creature during a prayer session at the
World Liberation Ministry, Evuoriaria
Community, off Benin-Sapele Road, Benin
City, Edo State on Tuesday, got married 11
years ago without a child.
The facts came to the fore as members of
the ministry, who witnessed the delivery of
the strange creature, gave details of who
the woman was and how she gave birth
inside the church’s auditorium on Tuesday.
An eyewitness, Mrs. Veronica Egiebor, a
nurse, disclosed that the woman was a
vegetable seller for more than 10 years,
adding that she sponsored her boyfriend
through his university education with the
profits she made from the business.
But when it was time for her and the
boyfriend to come together in marriage, the
boy’s mother allegedly turned the table
So, the relationship broke up.The man
reportedly got married to another person
and she also got married to another man
some years later.
Egiebor said the General Overseer of the
ministry, Evangelist Revd Silva Iyamu,
walked up to the woman during the prayer
session and asked if she was pregnant and
her answer was in the affirmative.
The woman said sometimes she would feel
that she was pregnant and at times, it
would seem as if she was not carrying any
“The evangelist told her she was not
carrying an ordinary baby. He said: ‘Do you
want to go to a doctor to flush out what
you are carrying because what you are
carrying is not a baby?’ The pastor paused
and asked her again: “Or do you want it to
happen here?’ Everybody shouted ‘yes.’”
Egiebor stated that Iyamu asked the woman
if she wanted to go to hospital for
evacuation and she said no. This, she said,
made the general overseer to begin the
She added: “Then, the evangelist asked four
women to donate their wrappers to form a
fence around her. He asked the men to
move to the back of the auditorium. He told
the congregation that the matter was a
Egiebor stated that Iyamu poured anointing
oil on the woman, sprinkled her with sachet
water and directed the congregation to
Before long, she said, the woman felt
uncomfortable and went into labour.Egiebor
said: “She held somebody’s leg with the
clothes as she pushed harder for the baby
to come out. Then, something dropped and
she fell. The thing fell, some people called it
a goat but it looked like a horse. It has a
long neck and the ears were long. It was
exactly like a horse, although it was in a
The turn of event, according to her, made
Iyamu to issue a strong warning to the
congregants to steer from the demonic
object.She maintained that many of the
congregants took to their heels as soon as
Iyamu gave the warning.
Personal Assistant to the General Overseer,
Prince John Ogbovoh, who said the branch
of the ministry where the incident occurred
was established about five months ago,
described the incident as spectacular.
He disclosed that the woman got married
about 11 years ago and has not had any
issue since then.He explained that the
woman had come to the ministry for prayer
of deliverance from her barrenness, adding
that his boss prayed with her and told her
that she carried a funny creature in her
Fielding question on why the woman was
at large, he responded: “I am sure the
woman is ashamed. God has done a good
job in her life and she is ashamed. But I am
sure she will come back. The dead creature
was left for a while for people to see.
“This morning (Wednesday), the people
ordered that they should throw the creature
away because it was becoming an
embarrassment. Evangelist Iyamu has
launched a manhunt for her.”A member of
the ministry, Ivie Imhanluobe, who said he
attended the prayer session, also recalled
that the woman sat on the front row.
According Imhanluobe: The pastor prayed
for her and she fell under the anointing. She
delivered a horse.
“We have seen ritual money turned to
tortoise in this church.”Another member of
the ministry, Maria Osawaye, said the
woman was covered in her own blood and
was weak after the delivery.
Evangelist Iyamu insisted that the woman
actually gave birth to the mysterious
creature in his church, saying whoever was
in doubt should verify the news.Iyamu
maintained: “This is not strange to us.
“We have been seeing miracles in this
ministry. When we were praying yesterday
(Tuesday), a word of knowledge came
about somebody who had an issue with
pregnancy. The vision was clear that
whenever she went for ultra-sound, the
doctors would confirm that she was
pregnant on some occasions and
sometimes said she was not pregnant.
“As the deliverance was going on, I noticed
that a woman was bleeding and I asked her
to come to the front. Some minutes later, we
heard people screaming.“I am not a medical
doctor and I may not know the appropriate
word to use.
“When she came out, everybody was
It was something we have not seen for a
long time. Later she collapsed. So, we had to
order everybody to go outside the
auditorium for ventilation before she was
revived. Some women who were around
cleaned her up.”
Answering question on the speculation that
the incident was not true and that it was a
ploy to increase members of his ministry,
Iyamu responded: “Every story has two
sides. To find out about any ministry, go to
that ministry. Signs and wonders are normal
things in this ministry.
“So, nobody can predict what God can do.
Whoever is in doubt should come with a
request.”Meanwhile, a Consultant
Gynaecologist, Dr. Jerry Uwaifo, has
described as a blatant lie the news of the
birth of the horse-like creature.
Uwaifo, who is the Medical Director of
Central Hospital, Benin City, maintained that
it was not medically possible for a woman
to be delivered of an animal.
He explained that there has always been a
genetic basis for giving birth.His words: “A
woman can give birth to a deformed child
but not animal.
“How come they didn’t bring her to a
reputable hospital so that it can be verified?
God does not perform a miracle in that way.
He will not allow a woman to deliver a
Uwaifo stated that the medical association
could not launch an independent
investigation into the bizarre incident
unless there was an invitation to do so,
adding that it must also be done with the
consent of the woman’s husband.

Since ending his four year marriage to
Stephanie Henshaw in June this year,
Pastor Chris Okotie has never really
opened up about what led to his
decision to end his marriage. There has
been a lot of speculations in the media
and he finally decided to react to some
of it. He gave an exclusive interview to
City People magazine through a minister
in his church, Rev Grace Funmi Paul, a
member of House Hold of God for the
past 25 years. It's a long interview but
I'm just going to pick some parts I think
might interest you all. See it below...
Rev Grace Paul: A blind person
knows that my pastor loved his
wife, Stephanie, passionately. This
year before the separation, he had
taken her out of the country at least
three times to different places like
Dubai, US and so on. He loved her,
so did the congregation but the
bible says that two cannot walk
together except they agree. In the
establishment of the kingdom of
God, the rules change because the
rules are made by God and not by
man. So, it didn't have to do with
what pastor wanted to do, because
left to him, his love will keep him
struggling and going at it but if God
gives him instruction he has to
follow it through.
City People: If I get you correctly, it was
Jesus instructions for Pastor Chris to
part ways with Stephanie?
Rev Grace: Let me give you a precedent.
In the bible, there's a queen called
Queen Vershti of Persia. The king invited
his wife and said - come woman, I want
to show you off to my people and the
woman had an attitude. She had pride
issues. It was at that point she said to
the king "Excuse me, I am making up,
how can you be humiliating me by
telling me to come and sit down so that
people can be looking at me." So she
refused and the people of the kingdom
rose up against her, and they said the
king must let her go, and that was how
Esther came in. That is the principle of
The Kingdom. In the two cases of my
pastor's former wives, it was an
abdication of roles. One was a physical
abdication, and the other was a spiritual
abdication. In the matters of the
Kingdom of God, when you abdicate
your position, your position will be
taken over, because the calling my
pastor has, he is not called to work
CP: In Stephanie's case, was it a case of
spiritual or physical abdication?
Rev Grace: Her case was spiritual
abdication, but either ways it amounts
to the same thing, because the scripture
states clearly that if unbelieving departs,
let him depart, you are not bound.
CP: Any efforts to patch things up?
Rev Grace: Spiritual things can not be
patched up. When there are two people
who are not the same kind, it is not a
matter of patching up.
CP: So is the congregation happy that
the pastor is single again and is there
any plans to replace Stephanie?
Rev Grace: The congregation is not in
the position to replace Stephanie. My
pastor is a full grown man, and he
knows what he's doing. In the case of
our pastor's first wife, she insisted that
where she wanted to do her church
work was in the US. As for Stephanie, I
cannot be intruding. As much as I am
authorised to do what I am doing, I
can't disrespect my pastor and
Stephanie. If I begin to give you some
details, they would amount to
disrespect. My pastor has insisted that
they want to keep it private.
CP: Pastor Chris once said that the
instruction to marry Stephanie was
Rev Grace: If you know my pastor, he is
a passionate person. They had a long
time relationship before they got
married. My pastor is particularly careful
about beautiful women because he
knows that the devil desires them. So
when a beautiful woman has issues in
church, he ministers to them, and
because he does that, people jump to
the conclusion that he sleeps with them,
which is not true. Just like Queen Ure,
pastor has never had an affair with her,
will never have an affair with her
because they are not of the same kind

Impatient thieves eager to get their
hands on the new iPhone 5 cell phones
rammed a BMW into a Temecula,
California Apple Store last week. Police
arrested 22-year-old Equonne R.
Howard, who they say was at the wheel
of the BMW when he smashed through
the Apple store’s iconic storefront
Once inside the store, Howard’s
accomplices jumped out and began
picking up iPads that were sent flying
when the car collided with display tables
at the front of the store.
Howard attempted to back out of the
store but his hasty departure was
impeded by the same tempered glass
windows he just drove through. The
damage to the pricey BMW included 2
flat tires and the license plate fell off the
car, which made it easier for the police
to track Howard down.
The keys to the BMW — which Howard
abandoned near the Apple store —
were still in his pocket. The damage to
his parent’s BMW will certainly exceed
the price of the stolen merchandise.
Howard pleaded not guilty Wednesday
to multiple felony charges.
There is no word on whether he got his
hands on the much-hyped iPhone 5.
Apple stocks soared close to $700 a
share following the launch of the iPhone

Britain’s royal family is in a tizzy this
morning after French magazine Closer
published topless pics of the Duchess of

The pictures show Middleton sunbathing
topless on holiday with her husband, Prince
William. The latest controversy comes just a
month after the royal family had to deal
with Prince Harry’s wild night in Vegas
which featured him posing nude in his hotel

Renowned Nollywood actress, Omotola
Jalade-Ekeinde, has been reportedly
dragged to court by one individual
identified as Keshi Elvis, a legal
practitioner holding brief for Megafield
Solicitors, whose legal services the
celebrity was said to have engaged
through her company, Redhot Concepts
Limited, between 2010 and 2012.
According to Keshi, Omotola is owing
total of N1,150,000, for retainership
agreement and services rendered to
Omotola and her company within the
aforementioned period. The problem, he
claimed, started when Omotola failed to
honour the contractual agreement they
entered into in 2010.
He however said all attempts he made to
ensure that Omotola and her company
honour the agreement failed, a situation
which prompted his decision to seek
redress in court: “In February 2012, I
wrote Omotola where I terminated our
agreement, with a letter of demand. She
ignored me all this while,” he said.
Interestingly however, the actress is
said to have enlisted the services of
famous Lagos Lawyer and human rights
activist, Festus Keyamo, not to deny
owing the complainant money, but to –
among other things – counter that what
she owed is “N350,000, and not
Now the question is: How much could
Omotola possibly pay for the services of
Keyamo? Or could it be pro bono?

A first year student of Health Technology at

to The Nation in Benin, the Edo State capital.
Grace, who was accompanied by her
father, Mr. James Ayetan said: “I boarded a
bus from Ring-Road to school and there
were other passengers in the vehicle. At
Five Junction, the bus stopped and the
conductor went down to pour water into
the radiator. That is the last thing I
remembered. We all fell asleep. “When
another passenger, a woman, woke us up
later, the bus was in the bush.
“We started shouting, but the driver and
the conductor brought out a gun and told
us to be quiet.
“They took us to an underground house in
the forest and put us into different rooms.
They chained us and hung our bags
around our necks. We went without food
and water for days.
“After beheading a woman and her baby, a
fight ensued between the ritualists over
what to do with the rest of us. In the
process, a bunch of keys fell from one of
“The fight drew the attention of the guards
at the main entrance who took the parties
into a room to settle the dispute.
“That gave one of us the opportunity to
pick the keys and unlock the chains. That
was how we escaped.”
Grace said a good Samaritan took them out
of the forest and brought them to Benin.
She advised the public to be careful when
boarding commercial vehicles. Mr. Ayetan
urged security agents to curb the activities

Reports gotten from the Union has it
that the first family has turned more
than a few heads at this week’s
Democratic National Convention, where
the president, as he greets delegates
and waves to crowds of supporters, is
often accompanied not only by his wife
and two daughters, but also his rarely
seen 19-year-old son, Luther.
The shy, slightly overweight teenager,
who has lived his entire life with his
mother in central Illinois, seldom
appears in public with the president,
with whom he has reportedly shared a
somewhat distant and occasionally
“When I saw that kid with President
Obama, I had no clue who he was,” said
Georgia delegate Kathy Tyson, stating
that the teen appeared to have difficulty
sustaining eye contact with others and
stood uncomfortably alongside his
father when he shook hands with
voters Thursday. “I guess he does kind
of look like the president, though a bit
shorter and stockier.”
Luther was born in 1993 to Andrea
Pletcher, then a 24-year-old diner
cashier whom Obama, a young law
professor at the time, met during a brief
trip to the state capital of Springfield.
While the president’s son is said to have
faced numerous obstacles during his
childhood, including academic troubles,
repeated emotional outbursts, and his
mother’s bouts with alcoholism, family
friends have stated that overall he was
a “good kid” who “genuinely meant
White House aides said the president
sends money to Pletcher each month for
Luther’s care. After he became a U.S.
senator and moved to Washington,
Obama reportedly visited his 11-year-
old son every other Saturday afternoon,
playing wiffle ball with him or taking
him out to a movie matinee and then
dinner at the local Applebee’s.
When he became president, however,
Obama’s contact with the boy reduced
markedly, though sources confirmed he
would still send Luther a birthday card
and speak with him on the phone every
month or so, often talking him through
his schoolwork or asking about his
son’s interests in music and online
According to reports, the two have
often struggled to find common ground,
owing largely to their sharply differing
levels of motivation and expectations
for academic and personal success.
“There was a rough patch during
Luther’s early and mid-teens when he
and his dad didn’t get along at all,” said
Pletcher, speaking from the $600-a-
month ground-level condominium she
shares with her son and live-in
boyfriend. “But Barry came to Luther’s
high school graduation last year, and
that was a big step forward for them.
And now that Luther’s rebellious phase
seems to be winding down, there’s
definitely a greater respect between
“I’ll tell you, though, Luther was a real
handful for a while there, with his ADD
and all,” Pletcher continued. “But he’s
doing okay now. And I’ve been with
[boyfriend] Ian [Williams] for the past
three years, so Luther’s had a male
figure he can look up to a little bit.”
In a sign of their improving relationship,
Obama is said to have congratulated his
son heartily upon learning Luther was
giving school another shot this fall,
enrolling part-time at Lincoln Land
Community College. Additionally, Obama
expressed optimism that his son could
have a “real bright future” in the field of
sales or, if he applied himself,
With Luther now slated to join the first
family on the campaign trail, staffers
confirmed the president has
encouraged them to entrust the
frequently expressionless teen, who
often dresses in all-black clothing, with
some minor tasks to help him learn
“We’ve got Luther stuffing envelopes
and handing out pins to the delegates,
and he’s doing a great job,” senior
campaign aide Stephanie Cutter said. “It
takes a while for him to come out of his
shell, but once he opens up he’s a real
nice kid. Plus he’s just so great with
Sasha and Malia. They really love their
“Luther may not have his father’s
smarts or gift for rhetoric,” Cutter
added, “but he tries. And he’s got a
good heart—a real good heart.”
Despite comments that interactions
between the president and his son have
remained noticeably stiff and awkward,
Obama said he was excited that he and
Luther were spending quality time
together and “finally starting to get to
know each other.”
“I can’t say I was the perfect father by
any means,” said Obama, admitting
candidly that he “wasn’t always there
for Luther.” “While my son has battled
his share of problems, his mother really
did the best she could raising him, and I
think she did a fine job. Now Luther and
I are ready to move forward and make
up for lost time.” “I’m real proud of my
boy,” he added, putting his arm around
his son, who flinched ever so slightly at
the physical contact.

that my gate appeared to be open.
“I asked them to check and they
reported back that out of the three

‘I am very dangerous when I am cross,
Omotola. By the time I am through with
you, you will be shocked what will happen
to you and your career’.
The above statement is an extract from the
book written by the prolific film maker,
actor and director, Charles Novia.
Charles has poetically revealed the secret
behind his fight with Omotola Jolade-
‘Nollywood Till November’ the book, states
“As the recording of the movie continued
Omotola somehow started getting on a lot
of the crew and cast nerves.
Since this is a ‘tell-it-like-it-is’ book and since
I am generally known to be outspoken, I
believe I have to reveal a bit of this, not in
any way to disparage her person but to be
candid in my opinion. Little unnecessary
skirmishes with one person or the other
It got to a head one day that my Production
Manager, who is usually easy-going and
friendly lost his temper and came to me. ‘Sir,
please this will be the last time I will ever
work with you if Omotola features in your
movie after this one!’ he complained.
I was taking everything in my stride and
trying to calm frayed nerves when a couple
of days to the end of the shoot, Omotola
practically drove me crazy. I am very calm
most of the time as a person and as a movie
director but that day I blew my top!
I remember screaming at her and she was
shocked at first but made the mistake of
putting up a defence. That was when I
basically warned her in a very deadly tone
to be mindful of me.
Most of my crew members were shocked to
see me in that mood. No one had ever seen
me like that. I remember Norbert Young,
Empress and Tari West calming me, while
Ramsey sat coolly in a corner fiddling with
his phone. Omotola seeing my mood, wisely
went to her car and sulked.‘Who told you to
leave my set?’ I bawled. ‘Get back here and
All this and many more filled the beautiful

So many times we have seen so many pictures of Nigerian ladies kicking each other's boot with little or no clothes on.

If report by BON is anything to go by,

The dangers of the Social Media is here
with us and everyone should be
security conscious when dealing with
people they met online.
A 30-year-old man facing charges of
raping a teenage girl two years ago is
said to have murdered the 16-year-old
last week so that she could not testify
against him in his upcoming sexual
assault trial, said police.
Franklin Davis, 30, of Irving, Texas,
confessed to shooting dead a black girl,
Shania Gray, after he was arrested on
Friday and police began questioning him
about the girl's death.
Davis allegedly raped and sexually
assaulted Gray in 2010 when she
babysat for his two children. In July
2011, he was charged with four counts
of sexual abuse and was released on
bail the following month.
The tragedy started when Davis set up a
fake Facebook profile pretending to be a
teenage boy in order to lure 16yrs Old
Gray into seeing him. Davis met up with
the schoolgirl, drove her to a remote
park and killed her, police said.
Using the fake profile, Davis sent the
schoolgirl messages saying they had
mutual friends and that he had a crush
on her. He told her he would stop by her
school to say hello on Thursday, Sherry
Ramsey, a close friend of the victim’s
Around 4pm last Thursday, after
finishing her second day at a new high
school, the 16-year-old believed she was

secluded Campion Trails Park in Irving,
fatally shot her and dumped her body in
a nearby river, according to police.
It is not clear what made Gray get into
Davis’ car, whether she was held at
gunpoint or if Davis was wearing a
disguise, said Ramsey. Gray's family say
she would not have got into Davis' car
Gray’s family say they did not know of
any contact between their daughter and
Davis since he allegedly raped and
sexually assaulted her. Davis trial was
