Case in point The ALUU 4, The young ladies who were stripped & tortured for stealing pepper, and many more similar cases like these, we have seen online.

Remember Nigerian Senator Ahmad Yerima, the former governor of Zamfara state who is 49 years old married a 13 year old Egyptian girl a few years back? [READ SENATOR YERIMA DEFENDS MARRYING A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL]

The Senator (who seems to have an unhealthy attraction to young girls) goes head to head with Nollywood star Stella Damasus on Al Jazeera’s The Stream as they take on the issue of Under age marriage in Nigeria. The episode aired last night on Al Jazeera.

Stella Damasus has been very vocal about her feelings about under age marriage in Nigeria, and has spoken passionately about it, especially in light of the recent hoopla surrounding Section 29, subsection 4b of the Nigerian Constitution.

As someone who married a 14 year old Sen. Yerima is a staunch supported of marrying young girls barely in their teens and Stella was the perfect person to tackle him on this matter as she holds no punches.

Tonto Dikeh Opens Up About Her Suicide Attempt & Struggle With Depression

TontohDikehSuicide_that1960chickdotcom

TontohDikehSuicide_that1960chickdotcom

When i tell people depression is real in Nigeria, they say it’s a white man’s disease!

Tontoh Dikeh/suicide story just goes to show we never know what anyone is going through behind closed doors, when the makeup comes off & it’s just YOU. Suicide is a serious issue, I had a family friend commit suicide 2 years ago, she was 26, she hung herself in her father’s house. I guess sometimes life just gets a bit too much to handle.

Controversial Nollywood star Tonto Dikeh shared her suicide story on Instagram & it came as a shock to most people because Tonto comes off as someone who doesn’t give a F what anyone thinks about her, but all that time she must have been going through some deep shit cos online reports claim she attempted suicide some time back in June & her instagram post where she opens up about her suicide bid supports this claim.

WTF! Nigeria Senate Legalises Under Age Marriage For Girls – Females As Young As 3 Can Now Get Married?!

United Nations

United Nations

I keep saying that the Nigerian Senate has misplaced priorities. They are not focusing on the real issues plaguing our nation like corruption, providing adequate health care, resolving the long standing NEPA issue and much more. Instead they are using tax payers money to to pass ridiculous bills like anti gay marriage laws with harsh 14 year jail sentences (as if the few gay people in Nigeria are clamouring for marriage) & a few days ago they passed a law legalising under age marriage.
