Oluchi Anekwe was a first class, 300-level student of Accounting at the University of Lagos, before she was fatally electrocuted by a live wire on the school premises in September 2015.

It is being reported that as compensation for her tragic death her family has been paid N45m. A source told PUNCH Metro that the money was paid to the Anekwe family after reached a non-disclosure agreement with them.

Meaning: don’t tell anyone we paid you N45M!

Oluchi was electrocuted on her way back from evening mass with her younger sister at about 7pm, she had reportedly entered the Eni Njoku Hall to buy an item and was walking out of the hostel when a high-tension wire fell on her. Her remains were buried in her hometown of Igbo-Etiti, Enugu State shortly after. After protests by the school’s student union, the FG set up a panel to investigate the death, with human rights lawyer, Femi Falana representing the Anekwe family in a suit against the EKEDC.

2016 is the year of pettiness and social media wars not just between celebrities but corporate brands are getting on it as well!

Today’s social media pettiness is between Nigerian banks – Sterling & Diamond.

Whoever manages Diamond Bank’s Twitter account should be fired for bad spelling and whoever manages Sterling Bank’s should be reprimanded for being unnecessarily shady!

But I’m not complaining though!!! It’s entertaining!

So here’s the tea, so this morning Diamond Bank Nigeria sent out a tweet promoting one of their latest products but judging by the spelling errors it looked like it was types by a semi illiterate 12 year old.

And then Sterling Bank replied the tweet with all manner of my pettiness calling them out for their language.

“Change The Change”, PDP Announces New Slogan…But Nigerians Aren’t Here For It!

img_4830.jpg


Since Muhammadu Buhari became president the former ruling party People’s Democratic Party has been coming at him and his administration left, right and center.

Yesterday, at a convention in Port Harcourt, former Senate President David Mark took shots at the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)-administration for the current sorry state of the country.

At the conclusion of his speech Mark screamed out a new slogan, “CHANGE THE CHANGE”

Just in case you did not know APC ran on the slogan of: CHANGE! While PDP’s has always been POWER.

Nigerians were not here for the new PDP slogan though and they made their feelings known on social media.

 

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE NEW PDP SLOGAN?

Lekan Shonde To Be Charged For Wife’s Murder Today Even Though Autopsy Shows “Ronke Didn’t Die From Domestic Violence”

img_4757.jpg

A few days ago the initial autopsy results for Ronke Shonde was released and the initial results released of Tuesday said she “did not die from marks of violence”, however by yesterday the final report was released and “the summary of the report is that she did not die from the bruises on her body. She died from respiratory seizure.”

Meaning she did not die from domestic violence.

My people this doesn’t mean she wasn’t a battered woman, it just means the bearings were not the cause of her death. They could definitely have led to it though.

The Nigerian labor Congress is planning a strike action against the removal of fuel subsidy and subsequent increase to from N87 to N145 per liter of fuel.

Buhari-Malta

Nigerians play way too much, someone has tampered with the Wikipedia page of President Muhammadu Buhari and listed “Ajala the Traveller” and “Baba Go Slow” as one of his nicknames!

Lmao!

Nigerians have been complaining about the amount of foreign trips the President has taken since he came into power, which probably led to him being given the name, “Ajala the Traveller” and Baba Go slow comes from the pace at which he handles things…like the budget.

The offensive names have been removed but we have a snapshot! Check it out after the jump.
