(Graphic photo) Man butchers friend and cut him into pieces over N750,000 debt

For residents of Itu Road, Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, on Wednesday, woke to a horror sight, following the murder of a middle-aged barber by a close family friend and supposed boss.

Steven Onowa, a graduate of Federal Polytechnic Oko, from Anambra State, was later arrested by men of the Akwa Ibom State police command over the murder of Daniel Bassey Solomon, his close friend and barbing salon employee.

Nigerian Tribune gathered that Onowa, who tried to escape after allegedly butchering his friend and dismembering him, was arrested with the aid of a GSM tracking device employed by officers and men of the Force.

Explaining the incident which led to the gruesome murder of the said barber, who hailed from Uruan Local Government Area, the state Police Commissioner, Mr Gabriel Achong, said the culprit confessed to have invited his friend to his house and offered him a drink.

“At about 3.00 a.m, I decided to kill him.

“I gave him the first cut, the guy got up; I gave him a second one and he died and I butchered him to parts,” the suspect confessed.

The commissioner, who confirmed that a quarrel had been on for the past two years between the ‘butcher’ and his victim, even as their case file was still with the SARS department of the command, said the police were successful in tracking down the culprit through the assistance of his landlord, who kept contacting him on phone, as the police kept tracking the calls.

“After stabbing him to death, he used matchet to chop off his hands, head and two legs. He packed the parts in a sack, pulled it out of the house to the major street of Itu Road.”

Apparently tired of evacuating the corpse to a safer place, he was said to have abandoned the deceased in a bag, removed the vital parts, including his two hands, which he dumped in a place along School Road and the head, which he hid in abandoned dump site on the same Itu Road.

The suspect, who confessed to the crime, said he had called his victim on phone for urgent meeting in his house, where he drugged his Orijin beer.

When the late Dan arrived, his killer entertained him with the drugged beer and it was not long before the deceased dosed off, giving his killer the opportunity to tie him, before stabbing him to death.

The suspect’s landlord, Mr Celestine George, who spoke to journalists at the police headquarters, Ikot Akpan Abia, said the police was called after the incident was reported and he had to put a call to the suspect and demanded for the balance of his rent.

“The suspect said he was about travelling and that he was with the balance which he would pay me before travelling. I then asked him to meet me at Itam junction, within the premises of a church where I had already told the SARS men to lay ambush for him.

“I kept calling him until he arrived at the premises of the church where I tricked him to. He came in a car with three armed mobile policemen and I hinted the men of the SARS formation, who had laid ambush for him within the premises and he was apprehended and handcuffed.

“The three mobile policemen were eventually overpowered by the SARS men and the suspect was arrested and taken to the police headquarters at Ikot Akpanabia,” he said.

What pained the angry residents of Itu Road the most, according to a neighbour, “is the fact that the suspect, apart from being a close friend of the deceased, was also having an affair with one of the late Dan’s sisters.”

He disclosed that such close relationship led to the suspect opening a barbing salon for his victim along Urua Ekpa Road.

When interrogated by newsmen, Onowa confessed to the crime and claimed to have killed his victim for daring to raise his voice at him over his N750, 000 he had refused to account for.

“We reported the matter to SARS about two years ago and he agreed on a timeframe to pay up the N750, 000. Till today, he has refused to pay the money, so when I invited him to my house that day, he started shouting at and getting angry with me, so I killed him . I am not dealing in body parts. I only cut him to pieces to be able to carry him,” the suspect added.

Don't drag us into Nigeria's politics, US state Department denies Oshomiole's $6bn story (shortfalls of the story)

Edo State governor who accompanied Buhari in 4-days State visit to United States has alleged that A minister who served under the former Goodluck Jonathan administration, stole $6billion (more than N1.2 trillion), he told Reporters on Monday.

But quick contact with United States Department in Washington-DC, on the matter said it is false allegation. US State Department denied the story, asked Oshiomhole, to name the official and not drag United States into Nigeria domestic politics, Republic Reporters gathered.

Oshiomhole who failed to disclose the name of the minister said the details were provided last week by United States officials during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit there. Mr. Oshiomhole, who was part of the delegation, did not give the name of the minister.

“We have moved away from a president that doesn’t seem to know his powers to one that understands that he is a president of the country in the continent,” Mr. Oshiomhole said in response to criticisms of the trip by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.

He spoke on Monday at the state house where he and the Kebbi State governor, Atiku Bagudu, as members of the APC governors’ forum, briefed President Buhari on the outcome of a discussion held with APC Senators Sunday.

“PDP destroyed the country- I mean from the lips of American officials; senior officials of the state department. They said one minister under PDP cornered as much as $6billion, and the man said even by Washington standard that is earth-quaking,” he said.

He said the country was being very patient with the PDP; otherwise Nigerians would have been “stoning” anyone carrying the badge of the party.
Mr. Oshiomhole said the PDP government plundered Nigeria, destroyed its institutions, damaged the military, converted the NTA to a party megaphone, destroyed the SSS, went after opposition, and compromised even student unions.

Mr. Oshiomole said under the PDP, there was no law as they were law to themselves. “We are a very patient people. If we were not a patient people, anybody wearing the tag of PDP ought to feel very unsafe because you are all victims- all of us here,” he said.

He quoted American officials as saying that Mr. Jonathan was seen as a confused president who did not know what they issues were, leaving others outside the country “frustrated”.

Recalling a chat with the US Assistant Secretary of State, Johnnie Carson, on the difference between the two administrations, Mr. Oshiomhole said Mr. Carson told him that each time they thought that there was light at the end of the tunnel for Nigeria and it is time to encourage them to build on it, “you we would wake up the following day under president Jonathan to find out that even the tunnel had been removed”.

“Now last week, this same Carson cheered the president’s address at the Institute of Peace. And he said ‘we now have a man of enormous integrity; one that has shown so much faith in the democratic process; one that refused to be frustrated even in the face of massively rigged elections,” he said.

WT?!!!! Man's head swells up like balloon after mosquito bite (photo)

A single mosquito bite has caused a man's entire face to swell up like a balloon.
Mr Zhang, 30, was bitten by a mosquito while at work in Jiangsu province, eastern China, at the end of May.
Soon his entire face became so swollen that he could barely open his eyes, but the swelling still has not gone down two months later, reported the People's Daily Online.
Doctors say the swelling is entirely down to the bite and there is no particular treatment except for using ice on his face.

Mr Zhang suffered a high fever on 15 June but has had no other complications apart from the facial swelling.

Dai Tao, a director at the Luoyang Oriental Hospital, said: 'His condition is extremely rare. Other than the swelling in the face, nothing else seems to be wrong.’
The doctor added that the swelling was Mr Zhang's immune system reacting to the mosquito bite, which may have been more poisonous than regular bites.

Lymph nodes on the face and the neck have been blamed for causing the abnormal size of the swelling.

Mr Zhang has been dismissed from his job for taking time off work to receive medical treatment.

He is now resting at home, but is expected to require further treatment from specialists.

So who gets to inherit withney Houston's daughter Bobby kristina's $20million wealth? (How the inheritors stand)

Before Whitney Houston died, she made preparations to ensure her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown was taken care of, making her the sole heir to the singer’s estimated $20 million fortune.

Since she turned 21 in 2014, Brown has been receiving her inheritance in installments. She was set to receive 25 percent of the inheritance when she turned 25 and the rest of the estate on her 30th birthday.

Now, following Brown’s tragic death on Sunday at the age of 22, questions quickly arose about what would happen to the money. Houston’s will, which was drawn up in 1993– years before Houston’s death in 2012 – dictates that in the event that Brown died unmarried and childless before the age of 30, the remainder of the estate would be distributed to Houston’s relatives, including her mother,Cissy Houston, and her two brothers, Michael and Gary.

While Bobby Brown, Brown’s father and Houston’s ex-husband, was originally named in the will, he likely will not inherit anything given his divorce from Houston in 2007.

In May, with Brown in the hospital following the Jan. 31 incident at her Atlanta-area home that left her incapacitated, a court-appointed conservator named Bedelia C. Hargrove was selected to be “responsible for Krissi’s assets, including her likeness, rights and legal claims,” according to a joint statement from Pat and Cissy’s counsel and Bobby’s counsel. (Pat – Houston’s sister-in-law – was appointed as co-legal guardian along with Bobby to oversee Brown’s care and medical needs.)

SHOCKING!!! Satanists vows to take over the world, unveils statue (photos&details)

Saturday, July 25, a group of ‘devil worshippers’ unveiled an 8-foot-tall statue of the Satanic Temple’s Baphomet in Detroit, the USA.

According to CBS Local, the event which sold tickets for $25 was sold-out.

Reports say that the event took place at an undisclosed industrial building downtown Detroit, with an estimated crowd of 700 people in attendance. The location was kept a secret because of the threat of religious protests.

CBN News reports that the Satanic Temple had plans for a private event at a Detroit restaurant, but the owner canceled the group’s reservation after learning of what was planned.

A closer view on the controversial statue.

Bert Dearing, the owner of the restaurant, was quoted by Web Pro News: “When I rented the place, I just thought it was a church. I didn’t know about the unveiling of a statue. We weren’t aware they were into devil worshiping.”

Witnesses say that attendees were forced to clear two security checkpoints at separate locations before arriving.

However, opponent Matt Pearson, an executive producer of Church Militant, discovered the location at Chene Park in downtown Detroit.

According to a Fox News report, the “guests were washed in red light shining down from the rafters at the venue as “dark punk” bands played and DJs performed from a stage located beneath a lighted, upside-down crucifix. Satanic Temple officials delivered speeches and a pair of shirtless men held candles on either side of the statue, prior to its unveiling.”

A ‘no photography policy’ was passed at the event, but despite the decree, a six-second Vine has surfaced of the ‘great unveiling’.

Meanwhile, the news has now gone viral, and some prominent Nigerians have begun to share it on tweets and Facebook statuses.

For instance, the director of media and publicity for Jonathan/Sambo campaign organization, Olufemi Olu-Kayode, was impressed by the statue’s height.

The Satanic Temple says it supports separation of church and state, hence the statue was meant for the state capitol in Oklahoma City until its Supreme Court banned a monument of the Ten Commandments.

Jex Blackmore, the director of the Satanic Temple Detroit chapter, said temple members planned to transport the sculpture to Arkansas, where earlier this year, the governor signed a bill authorizing a Ten Commandments monument on the State Capitol’s grounds.

The Temple had unsuccessfully applied to have the statue placed near the Ten Commandments monument installed in 2012 on the Oklahoma State Capitol grounds.

Buhari chides Jonathan, says he conceded defeat reluctantly

New set of interesting quotes emerges from the yesterday show “Good Morning Nigeria” which hosted President Muhammadu Buhari
as a guest. The Paradigm reports with reference to the NTA programme that Goodluck Jonathan conceded the defeat “reluctantly”.

Recall that the former president of the country was highly praised for having accepting Buhari’s victory without argument. Buhari had also commended his colleague for exercising the true spirit of leadership. However, the incumbent leader expressed different moods during the widely publicised show explaining that GEJ made the move unwillingly.

He noted that Jonathan had to other choice but to concede defeat, as the world powers had put pressure on the authorities. Numerous countries made it clear that a non-constitutional result would not be accepted.

“Now, you know what was done to threaten the last election, including threatening INEC by telling them that their security could not be guaranteed and they added six weeks extension to the time of the election. Luckily APC won and then reluctantly, the ruling party conceded and the rest, as they say, is history.
“So really the Americans have shown concern, they spoke to the former president, INEC, the opposition and maintained the pressure throughout.

The Americans were in agreement with Europe and Nigeria.
In the course of the programme Buhari also touched upon the sensitive issue of ministers appointment saying that only decent and experienced official would form the cabinet.

Look at Bobbi Kristina's final moments an funeral plans

Pat and Gary Houston this morning at their home in Atlanta shared intimate, heartbreaking details from Bobbi Kristina Brown’s final moments.

A close group of family gathered as Bobbi Kristina’s death seemed imminent, including her aunt Pat Houston, Pat’s brother Ray Watson and her sister-in-law Donna Houston, cousin Meeta Brown and family friend Wanda Shelley.

As they waited for a minister to arrive, they read together from the Bible, specifically from Psalms 23: “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.”

The Psalm concludes, “I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

After the reading, as the group was repeating “Hallelujah,” Bobbi Kristina took her last breath.

Donna Houston marked the time of death was 8:17pm Atlanta time, and one family source told ET it was as if Bobbi Kristina’s mother, Whitney Houston, was there calling her to the other side. It was very peaceful, quiet and beautiful, the family said.

This core group, spearheaded by Pat Houston, have been watching over Bobbi Kristina since she was first hospitalized on Jan. 31, traveling 60 miles to be with her every day, the family source said. They would do Bobbi Kristina’s hair, bathe her and oil her body, turning her. This team’s main focus, the source told ET, was to make certain Bobbi Kristina was never alone. The source told ET the family is devastated by this loss.

Just days before being found unconscious and unresponsive, Bobbi Kristina and Pat Houston had discussed Bobbi Kristina going to rehab. Bobbi Kristina had agreed to go as long as Pat would be the one to take her there, the family source told ET, who said that Bobbi Kristina was clear she did not want boyfriend Nick Gordon there.

Family friend Tyler Perry was also at the house this morning. Perry is helping with the funeral arrangements. The funeral is tentatively set for Thursday, July 30, in the Atlanta area.

Because Bobbi Kristina never had a prom nor a “Sweet 16” party, the family source told ET her funeral will be a celebration, calling it “the Sweet 16 she never had.”

Houston, who died in 2012, is buried at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey, where Bobbi Kristina will also be laid to rest. Her funeral service was held at her childhood church, Newark’s New Hope Baptist Church, and was a private, invitation-only event, though portions were live-streamed online. Speakers included Houston’s cousin Dionne Warwick and Kevin Costner and musical performances by Stevie Wonder and Alicia Keys. Oprah Winfrey and Mariah Carey also attended.

The service lasted nearly four hours, and closed with Houston’s recording of “I Will Always Love You” playing as her mother, Cissy, and Bobbi Kristina walked with the casket out of the church.

END OF A LINE: Late Withney Houston's only daughter finally gives up the ghost

After a long protracted battle with life in Coma  Bobbi Kristina Brown aged 22 finally gave up the ghost. This is coming  six months after she was found unconscious in a bathtub.

The aspiring singer was rushed to hospital and placed in a medically-induced coma on January 31 after she was discovered face-down in the water-filled tub at her townhouse in Roswell, Georgia.

She passed away, surrounded by her family, at the hospice on Sunday - just 3 years after her famous mother, singer Whitney Houston, died aged 48 in a bathtub at a hotel in Beverly Hills.

Officials are planning to treat the death of Bobbi Kristina, who was found in the tub with bruises on her face and body, swollen lips and a missing tooth, as a murder investigation.

The person of interest in the case will reportedly be her boyfriend, Nick Gordon.

The Houston family said on Sunday night that Bobbi Kristina 'is finally at peace in the arms of God.'

In a statement via a representative, they said: 'Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.'

May her soul rest in the lords bosom. Amen!
