AbujaBombBlast_11_that1960chickdotcom

Dear Mr. President,

When will Boko Haram’s reign of terror end? People are getting killed and kidnapped left, right and center! We need this to end sir, please do something.

The explosion that hit the EMAB SHopping complex at Wuse II, Abuja yesterday (June 25) killed 21 people! According to the Police Force Public Relations Officer Frank Mbah who last night briefed journalists at the scene of the explosion, “21 dead, 17 injured and 17 vehicles burnt.”

Eyewitnesses put the number of dead at over 30 though.

The force of the explosion was so strong that many of those killed had their bodies completely dismembered. I saw pictures of bloodied arms which had clearly been ripped out of their sockets!

Which way Nigeria ooooo? Is Boko Haram now controlling the country?! This is the 3rd terror explosion in Abuja in 2 months, after Nyanya Motor Park Blast in April which killed 71 and the Nyanya market explosion which killed 19 people in May.

Reports say two of the suspects were killed at the scene and one arrested. According to Punch, one of the suspects was killed when he was trying to gather human body parts at the scene of the explosion!

Man In Kano Held In Mental Institution For Denouncing Islam & Saying He Doesn’t Believe In God?

v2-Mubarak-bed

This story about Mubarak Bala who refers to himself as #ExMuslim on twitter is trending on social media and some mainstream media outlets. He claims he is being held in a pysch ward against his will and forcibly medicated at The Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital because he is now an atheist.

The International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU) reports, that Bala is being held on the grounds of a “personality change” because he declared himself an atheist despite being raised in a Muslim family in Kano

The Independent reports that,  when Mr Bala told his family he did not believe in God, they took him to a doctor and asked if he was mentally ill. When this doctor found him to be fit and well, the family are believed to have taken him to a second doctor who claimed he was suffering with a personality disorder (bipolar). The family allegedly told this doctor he also made delusional claims that he was a “governor” and other “trivial lies”.

MultichoiceRising_that1960chickdotcom

Multichoice Africa has brought together some of Africa’s hottest artistes Davido, Tiwa Savage, Diamond Platnumz, Sarkodie,  Myztikal and Mi Casa for a positive uplifting song about Africa. It’s a nice African dance song although some of the lyrics are cheesy but overall…I like it!

The song gives a shout out to some great Africans like Nelson Mandela, Barrack Obama, Kwame Nkrumah and of course Lupita Nyong’o. The artistes were all repping in Ankara fashion and that white boy (Myztikal) has some moves!

Last week I told you about how veteran Nollywood actor RMD had lost a drastic amount of weight by changing his lifestyle, now rapper Rick Ross has left #TeamFat for #TeamFit

Last month in an interview with Tim Westwood he said the most excerise he had done was to “tand up and count money.”
