A Lagos Housewife Gets 10 years in Prison For Flogging 14-year-old Houseboy to Death

Posted in: , ,

One of the dreams of not a few Nigerian women is to get married, and more than that have their own homes, with the high possiblity of having househelps. The unfortunate reality is that most of those women, housewives or working women, have never managed people before, and before long, start to transfer the agression from their stressful relationships or careers unto their domestic staff. This is a lesson for women in the habit of mistreating their help to take it easy and learn new diplomatic skills of managing their underaged househelps rather than violent punishment for unnecessary reasons.

Tragic Joke! Friends Dress Up As Trayvon Martin and Zimmerman For Halloween Party?

Posted in: , , ,

I'm yet to buy into the American halloween custom, and  recently asked no one in particular what made a costume relevant for Halloween? Is it meant to be funny, is it meant to be scary, it it meant to honor something/someone you like, or maybe the TV show/movie you're a fan of?I asked that question when a costume ad on TV showed someone painted silver in a Gandhi costume, I found that disrespectful. This news takes the cake!

Omoni Oboli Speaks Out on The Recent Plane Crash and General Mediocrity in Nigeria

Posted in: , , ,

The Pain of Our Negligence By Omoni Oboli

I haven’t been this sad for a long time, owing to the passing away of a friend, Deji Falae. I can’t imagine that we still lose people in that manner. We have passed through this road of plane crashes and I thought it was a thing of the past, but here we are again. What’s wrong with us? Where did we begin to operate in this spirit of hatred for our own such that we end up killing ourselves. Our negligence is not just an irresponsible act that we need to change but something that could cause the death of another human being. I’m just so saddened by this incident, because it could have happened to anyone. No one in his right mind would get on a plane if there was the least shadow of doubt to its airworthiness. That is why the passengers got on board.
