Hon. Mathias Nweze a former member of the Enugu Independent Electoral Commission (ENSIEC) was said to have rushed to the police station in the town of Umuida Enugu Ezike in Igboeze North Local Government Area of Enugu State to report himself for killing his wife.
In his report to the police, Nweze claimed that while he was sleeping
in his house at about 11 pm last Saturday, his generator went off
twice, arousing the suspicion that robbers might have invaded his
compound. He therefore brought out his pump action gun and fired several
times at the direction of the generator. Having been living with his
two wives in the same house, he claimed that while trying to shoot
whoever was out there in the compound, one of the bullets hit his wife, leaving her critically injured.
However, the neighbours of the Nwezes believed the suspect must have
made up the story to the police to lessen the weight of his crime.
According to two neighbours who spoke to THISDAY newspaper on grounds of
anonymity, they said the suspect had given money to the late wife
to cook some delicacy for him but he was angered when he found out that
rather than cook what he wanted, he was served something else which
they identified as ‘corn mill’. An angry Nweze had rushed into his room,
picked his gun, stormed out, aimed the gun at the wife, and pulled the trigger, the neighbours claimed.
State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Ebere Amaraizu, confirmed
the report, adding that the body of the deceased had been deposited at
the mortuary for autopsy, just as the suspect has been detained by the
police. He also noted that the police had commenced full scale
investigation into the incident that led to the shooting of the mother
I have been pondering on an
issue, a major thorn in my flesh. I hear stories of people getting
married to their first and only love and I go, really? I envy their
tenacity and the depth of their love. I mean, you met a man at the age
of 15, and you’re still together at 40 ? Mehn that’s some serious ish.
I am not here to give you love advice, for how can someone give
advice he has not taken himself ? How about us who are not so lucky to
meet that special person at 15 or date for years? I call this the broken
road that most of us travel; meet someone, date someone,...

Oprah Winfrey has stirred up controversies with her new TV programme Oprah’s Next Chapter: India" about India.
The controversy started when Oprah said “oh-my-god-how
wonderfully-pathetically-quaint-to-be-so-poor” during her visit to some of the slums in India.
In one of the slums, she met a family, who live in a 10×10 feet room. She couldn't hide the fact that she was surprised to see an entire family living in
such tiny quarters. She also had an amazing lack of sensitivity to the
children’s feelings or the feelings of the parents who’d opened up
their home to her. (firstpost.com reported)
She went further to ask the children how they could live in such a “tiny” room and
actually wanted to know, “Don’t you feel it’s too cramped?” (Why should she do that?)
