A community of Ondo state is reported to have today begun the process of cleansing their land in a bid to appease the gods over a plague believed to have been brought to them by some persons who desecrated and stole from their shrine. The deadly illness that hit the community has killed at least 14 people so far.
The Ondo state commissioner for Information had earlier announced that the illness and sudden death is connected to an exhumed corpse. That the people who've died so far were those who had contact with the people who exhumed the corpse. But some people believe it is more than simply possible contact with pathogens in a decomposing body.

Where are all these nannies from hell popping up from? One nanny in Nairobi, Kenya was recently sentenced to prison for abuse of a minor, but this story is about another one who is going too far in the opposite direction. This new househelp was caught on camera attempting to breastfeed her employer’s baby, to stop her from crying. Or the reason could be even more sinister, as some say her actions shade into sexual molestation.
The maid, Grace Mwikali Mwema, had just been employed two days prior to the incident. A hidden camera in the living room showed Mwema offering the 9-month-old baby her breasts to suck. However, the baby resisted. Nairobi News reports that “the baby’s mother says she could not believe her eyes as she watched a live feed from the nanny camera on her smart phone while at work.” Watch below...
