Customer kills businessman over money, buries him in shallow grave (photo)

A businessman, identified simply as Ogbaire, has allegedly murdered his associate, Lawrence Okoh, and buried his body in a shallow grave in Warri, Delta State

Okoh, a native of Ubulu-Uku in Aniocha South Local Government Area of the state, left his Port Harcourt business outfit to supply generator spare parts to a customer in Warri.

After the supply on August 2, Okoh, fondly called Law, did not return home and police declared him missing. The deceased had, earlier that day, sent a text message to his wife that he would not make it back to Port Harcourt and that he would pass the night with his customer in Warri.

His wife contacted the customer, who claimed that he knew the deceased very well, but that he did
not see him for over a period of time.

The police raided the spare parts market in Warri where the wife was able to identify some of the parts her husband left with on the fateful day.

The shop owner, where the parts were found, took the police to the person who supplied them. The suspect was the one who told Okoh’s wife that he had not seen her husband in a long while.

Ogbaire allegedly confessed to the police that he murdered Okoh and buried him in a shallow grave in an uncompleted building.

A senior police officer in Warri said Okoh’s decomposing body had been exhumed and released to the family in Ubulu- Uku for burial.

He said:
 “The suspect has confessed to the crime that he killed Okoh in order not to pay him the money for the spare parts, he supplied him.”
The officer added that the suspect also confessed that he committed the act with another person. A family source said Okoh left behind twins.
“My cousin got married eight years ago and just got twins last year. The wife is now a widow while the twins, who are minors, will not see their father again.”
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Celestina Kalu, confirmed the story. She said:
 “The principal suspect had been arrested, after taking the police to the shallow grave. We have exhumed the body.”
Ubulu-Uku, Okoh’s hometown, has been thrown into mourning, NewTelegraph reports.

"Tribalism, backwardness, hypocrisy and double standards by Hausa-Fulani Islamic fundamentalists is destroying Nigeria"

According to  Jude Chijoke Ndukwe, @StJudeNdukwe (Writer, public affairs analyst):

"In Southern Nigeria, a man named his dog 'Buhari.' He was promptly arrested and prosecuted. 8 people were killed in Zamfara State (Northern Nigeria) by Islamic fundamentalists, but, as usual, no arrest was made. 
Unless the leaders of Hausa-Fulani core North change their ways and mentality about religion, education, girl-child and women's rights etc, their region will remain Nigeria's most impoverished, most illiterate, most diseased, most malnourished and most backward, even if Barack Obama, Angela Merkel, Vladimir Putin, Theresa May, John Kerry, Donald Trump, Hilary Clinton et al visit the Sultan on a daily basis."

North Korea to punish Olympians who failed to win medals with forced labour

Despotic President of North Korea, Kim Jong-un is set to punish his country’s Olympians who failed to meet his Rio Olympics medal target.

Kim Jong-un warned his country’s athletes to return with at least 5 gold medals and 12 other medals prior to the Games, or risk being sent to work in the coal mines.

But after the North Koreans limped back to Pyongyang with just seven medals, including two golds, its athletes could face the wrath of chubby despot Kim.

The Asian country could only manage two gold and for other medals and are awaiting their fate from the country’s number one citizen.

Expert on the secretive nation, Toshimitsu Shigemura, said:
“Those who won medals will be rewarded with better housing allocations, better rations, a car and maybe other gifts from the regime.

“But Kim is going to be angry and disappointed at these results.

“Those he feels have let him down are likely to be punished by being moved to poorer quality housing, having their rations reduced and, in the worst-case scenario, being sent to the coal mines as punishment.”
Another reason for getting punished by Kim is that they fraternized with bitter rivals South Korea who went home with 21 medals, including nine golds.

WOW!! Meet girl who is patched up with skin from dead people (PHOTOS)

In 2010, Alexandra Worthington, 18,  was playing game of 'igniting alcohol' with her 14 and 16-year-old relatives when an explosion occurred and she was engulfed in a “hot, orange light”. Her face and eyelids “melted off” and her hair was burnt.

She had over 20 surgeries including skin grafts and the skin- and some flesh- was sourced from dead bodies.

After the explosion, she went into a coma at the hospital and woke up days later with a tube down her throat.

The doctors gave her weeks to naturally recover before they brought her out of the coma and explain what had happened to her body.

According to the Mirror UK, she has undergone more than 20 operations including skin grafts on her elbows, legs, thighs, back, arms and stomach- all replaced using skin and flesh from her legs of from dead bodies.

“I have no idea who the donor is because I just woke up and it as on me. At first it was weird because I had different skin tones but my body did not reject it and I stopped thinking about it unless someone asked,” said Worthington who is now a burns counsellor.

She admitted to gotten depressed and entertaining suicide thoughts because her neighbors would point at her and laugh as well as personally feeling like a monster.

“I’m in a good place now. I still feel self conscious but I think of my scars as interesting than hideous. I use my experience to counsell other burns survivors because I was a stupid kid being bad when I got burned,” added Worthington.

I am scared of marriage – Actress Ebube Nwagbo

Nollywood Actress, Ebube Nwagbo, has revealed  she is scared of marriage following the high cases of divorce in the industry.

The Anambra State-born actress told ‘Star Gist’ in an interview:

I am scared of marriage, we see divorce everyday. Although no one goes into marriage believing she would soon jump out of it.
I strongly believe that before a couple considers divorce, they must have put in their best to make it work, all to no avail. Marriage in the limelight is not easy, even those outside it are not surviving easily. 
“For me, before I take the decision, it just has to be right.
“Marriage is always going to be at the right time, and don’t ask me when is the right time. I’m single but I’m not searching, Why would I?
“Well, I am seeing somebody, but starting my own family I can’t say for now. But I will do that at the right time.
“I don’t like doing something and later jump out of it. I take my time to do whatsoever I want to do making sure it is the right decision. 
I have learnt a lot from other people’s mistake and that has helped me a lot.
Being in a relationship alone is not easy not to mention marriage, I just want to do it right to avoid regret. So I am treading carefully.
