Gbenga, why are you so quiet? How’s your wife?’
‘Frank, she’s fine jare.’

‘My God, Gbenga please tell us you didn’t wash them. Did you?’
‘Yes I did, but before I did, I told her it would be the last time I’d ever wash her pants.’
‘Abegii, make we hear word. Who you dey lie for? Mehn, we don suffer for our wives hands sha. Frank, we heard your ex wife spent 24,000 dollars on a yacht trip in Dubai a couple of days ago.’
‘Abeg make una let me hear word. She no fit afford such extravagance. Maybe she don catch another maga.’
‘Frank don’t tell us you are jealous. What makes you so sure that she can’t afford it? Didn’t you see my wife’s friend who just got divorced the other day in her brand new G-wagon and they say she has also bought a house for herself here in lekki?’
‘Gbenga you be mumu if you believe say na her money she take buy house and G-wagon. How much she dey collect per movie and how many movies she dey act?’
‘Abeg na dem sabi jare. Make I begin dey go. My wife go soon call to ask whether I don pick her daughter from school. I still get to cook for her and her friends this evening.’
‘Guys, me sef don waka oo, I no dey for my wife trouble. Femi, are you not going home? You wey go soon become the latest Lekki husband. But please make sure her previous marriage was legally annulled by a court of competent jurisdiction ok?’
‘You be our guy and we don’t want you to be like Gbenga whose marriage is illegal.’

Riots in Cities all over USA as Jury drops charges against Officer over Michael Browns fatal shotting

 

A storage facility in Ferguson, Mo., is on fire following the decision Monday by a grand jury not to charge officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. Demonstrators clashed with police and set buildings on fire. St. Louis County Police Chief John Belmar said the unrest was worse that which erupted after Brown was killed in August.

 

The police officer who fatally shot and killed an unarmed young black 18 year old Michael Brown has been acquitted of charges in the case

Officer Darren Wilson who during the week had already asked he resign from his job to help ease pressure and protect his fellow officers, the sources said.

Darren 28 years old an 8 year veteran has been a subject to a fatal shooting in Missouri Ferguson where an eye witness to the account on August 9th told the jury he saw when the teenager stormed at the police officer ;

The prosecutor, Robert P. McCulloch, said in a news conference.

“The duty of the grand jury is to separate fact and fiction,” he said in a statement watched by a tense nation. “No probable cause exists to file any charges against Darren Wilson.”

Mr. McCulloch praised the grand jurors, who met on 25 days over a three-month period and heard 60 witnesses, for pouring “their hearts and souls into this process” and said that only by hearing all the evidence, as they had, could one fairly judge the case.

The task facing the St. Louis County grand jury was not to determine whether Officer Darren Wilson was guilty of a crime, but whether there was evidence to justify bringing charges, which could have ranged from negligent manslaughter to intentional murder.

The fact that at least nine members of the 12-member panel could not agree to indict the officer indicates that they accepted the narrative of self-defense put forth by Officer Wilson in his voluntary, four hours of testimony before the grand jury. Mr. McCulloch, in his summary of the months of testimony, said it was supported by the most reliable eyewitness accounts — from African-Americans in the vicinity of the shooting — as well as physical evidence and the consistent results of three autopsies.

At issue, under the Missouri law governing use of deadly force by law enforcement as well as general rules for self-defense, was if Officer Wilson “reasonably believed” that he or others were in serious danger.

So far there has been looting and burning of shops, malls and even some people homes are lost following the verdict.

You are free to go- Court frees alleged Nyanya bomber

 

 

A federal court in Abuja has aquitted Aminu Oguche, the alleged mastermind of the Nyanya bomb attack in Abuja, the News Agency of Nigeria has reported.

The court struck out a two-count terrorism charge against Mr. Ogwuche on Monday, after months of trial for the April 2014 attack which killed more than 70 people.

The government said Mr. Ogwuche fled to Sudan after coordinating the attack.
