The name Patrick Sawyer has become synonymous with Ebola in Nigeria. He became a household name for the wrong reasons when he knowingly came into Nigeria with the deadly virus, infecting over 20 people, 7 of whom died.

His widow Decontee Sawyer did not warm herself to the hearts of Nigerians when she defended her husband’s decision to come to Nigeria knowing he had he disease. [READ HERE IF YOU MISSED IT]

She later apologized.

In a new interview with MPR News, the widow and mother of three said she believe Nigerians are still angry at her husband.

The widow who lives in Minnesota says she has been struggling financially since July when her husband died and needs to claim benefits for her 3 daughters, but she needs to prove her husband is dead to apply for benefits and to do that she needs a death certificate, which she claims the Nigerian government & First Consultants Medical Centre the hospital were Sawyer died are both refusing o give her.

Decontee Sawyer believes the reason why she hasn’t received Patrick’s death certificate or cremated remains is because Nigerian officials blame her husband for the Ebola outbreak.

A few weeks ago I told you about a two year old girl who had been abducted from the UK by her paternal grandmother and taken to Nigeria. The girl’s mother Moronke Fadoju cried out and the child abduction issue became a national issue. [READ HERE IF YOU MISSED IT]

Since then a war of words has ensued between Moronke Fadoju (Liya’s mum who lives in the UK) and her baby daddy Izuchukwu Ehiemere (who lives in Nigeria)

Izuchukwu gave an interview to Bella Naija basically describing Moronke as a loose girl, whom he was in a casual relationship with while they were both studying at University of Hertfordshire and got pregnant less than 3 months into their friends with benefits relationship.

In the same interview Izochukwu claims he was involved in raising Liya and his mother decided to take the little girl away from Moronke when she observed a lot of traits and behavioural patterns that could be of potential harm to the proper development of Liya.

One day while Moronke was at school, Liya’s paternal grandmother who had been staying with her at the time took the little girl and brought her to Nigeria. Thanks to blogs and social media Moronke’s cries that her child had been abducted did not go unheard.

Izuchukwu has said Moronke’s cries of abduction was a deliberate act to sabotage his family’s name.

A few hours ago a gunman shot and wounded a soldier in Ottawa and then entered the country’s parliament buildings which houses the Canadian Senate & Canadian House Of Commons. According to media and eyewitness reports at least 30 shots fired. The country’s Prime minister was in the building when the shooting at parliament occurred but he was safely removed from the building.

CBC TV said the shooter was killed inside the parliament building. The Canadian parliament is the equivalent of the US Capitol Hill.

People in that area have been told to draw their shades, stay down and not leave their building as there are suspected to be 2 or more shooters on the loose, in multiple locations. This is said to be one of the major hallmarks of an organized terror attack.

The shooting comes two days after an Islamic convert who is an ISIS supporter ran down two Canadian soldiers with his car, killing one, near Montreal, before being shot and killed by police.

According to the police, “several shooting incidents in downtown Ottawa, Incidents occurred at National War Memorial, near the Rideau Centre and Parliament Hill.” All Ottawa police buildings remain on lockdown and are closed to the public”

According to Reuters, a construction worker said he heard a gunshot, and then saw a man dressed in black with a scarf over his face running towards parliament with a gun. The man stopped a black car at gunpoint and hijacked it. The driver got out safely, then the man drove the car to the Center Block on Parliament Hill. The suspected gunman rushed past a woman with a child in a stroller, who ran away screaming. He did not attack the woman or child.

It has not been established if the attack is linked any organized terrorist organisations, especially in the wake of the latest threats by ISIS to attack United States & Canada.

The shooting began during a caucus meeting at the Parliament which was being attended by the Prime Minister.
