NAIJA SINGLE GIRL: Romance In Nigeria

I spent the whole of yesterday evening watching Hollywood romantic movies. When I was done, I wept for my single status all night. I felt like I deserve to be arrested for being single.
These Hollywood guys know how to make love/ dating look so beautiful.
The images I saw of them kissing, holding hands, looking into each other eyes, whispering sweet nothings (what does that mean anyway?) will surely keep me depressed for days. When this mood eventually fades, I'm going back to the best movies for single ladies, Horror Movies!

Dino Melaye releases statement on divorce matters

Jim Iyke calls ghanian Blogger a bisexual nincompoop

Chei, Jim can cause shaaaa! 
Sorry for the ghanian guy. Enjoy the story as it unfolds:

The blogger Chris Evans at Ghanacelebrity.com wrote something about Jim being involved in a street fight over $10k...don't know the full details...and the news went viral as Ghanian Blogs quickly spread the word.  

See full jist according to GhanaCelebrities.com:
  •  For whatever reason, Jim Iyke’s level of arrogance does not seem to measure up to his intelligence—both academically and in live. It doesn’t hurt a lot of people when someone is arrogant, because such a person can be easily avoided, so he can be allowed to live in his own little world of delusion where death can never come to fetch him.But if the arrogance gets out of hand and become physical or probably deadly, then we can jump to talk about it. According to the Ghanaian Times’ report below, Jim Iyke got into a fight in Accra where he has visiting for some time (because of Nadia Buari) and he nearly pulled out a GUN—probably to scare his opponent or to arrogantly fire it…. Maybe he thought he was Chris Brown!

And now the Ghana Times Reports:
  • Nigerian movie star Jim Iyke was involved in a brawl yesterday, at the Crave Café at Adjiringanor, East legon in Accra.According to an eyewitness account, some people were eating at the café, at about 5pm when a stout-looking gentleman in a black Range Rover with a Nigerian number plate, came to the café. Jim Iyke also arrived about 20 minutes later in his Sports Chevy with a Nigerian number plate, and engaged the man in a heated argument over $10,000 which later turned into a nasty brawl on the street. The eyewitness further explained that it became difficult for those around to separate the two, and at a point, Jim Iyke wanted to get into his car to pull out something which was suspected to be a gun, but he was prevented by those at the café. The other man left but returned shortly with two policemen, one in mufti and other in uniform who arrested Jim Iyke and took him away. But the eyewitness told The Ghanaian Times newspaper that barely 20 minutes later, the actor resurfaced at the venue, which created the impression the case had been ‘settled’ by the two policemen. The Legon Police Commander in a telephone conversation, with The Ghanaian Times said, the men he dispatched to the venue had information of the scuffle, but those at the scene were reluctant to give the police indepth account of what actually transpired, and so they were unable to bring the two men to the police station.
Apparently Jim didn't like the report and took to Twitter to blast the blogger, calling him a bisexual nincompoop. His tweets below:

Dino Melaye is happy to be divorced from wife of 10 yrs





The wife of the former Kogi State House of Reps member, Tokunbo Melaye filed for divorce a few weeks back citing emotional/physical abuse, and cheating. There are also reports that he threatened his wife with a gun.

He took to Twitter yesterday to express his 'profound happiness' over the end of his 10 year marriage.


His wife's family (the Fabiyi's)  has also sent him a warning letter. And another to him family summarizing the experiences of their daughter in the hands of Dino.
Interesting family feud:
see letters below:

Mr. Dino Melaye
On Saturday Nov 16th, elders from the Fabiyi family, comprising of our father, Pa Ekundayo Fabiyi and his siblings Commander Lawrence Fabiyi (Ret.) and Mrs Alice Ejiko, met with your parents and formally notified them of our family’s position on your long history of assault, battery, psychological & emotional abuse, grievous bodily harm, and threat to life with a firearm to Tokunbo Melaye (nee Fabiyi).
At that meeting, they presented a six (6) page document to your parents cataloging in great detail, your abusive actions towards Tokunbo over the last decade. They also presented a list of six (6) demands, which our family expects to be met by Saturday November 30th, 2013. A scan copy of the document that was presented to your parents is attached to this mail. The list of demands are contained in the attachments marked Page 5 and Page 6.
We expect to receive before midnight on November 30th, written confirmation, duly affirmed with your signature that you will immediately comply with all of the requests. We also expect that Ruth will be physically delivered to her mother’s custody before midnight, on November 30th. The letter confirming compliance should be scanned and sent to all parties listed in the carbon copy (cc) list of this e-mail. The delivery of Ruth to her mother’s custody, the timely receipt of the scanned letter confirming compliance (sent from your e-mail:dinomelaye@yahoo.com), and confirmation by me via return mail that your response is satisfactory, will settle the matter. 
Should you fail to meet these reasonable requests, we will be forced to seek redress for the grave injustice meted out to Tokunbo in the courts. Our attorneys have been instructed to commence with legal proceedings by December 2nd, 2013 should we deem your response to our requests inadequate. 
While we wish to maintain this distasteful episode as a private matter, we want to make it clear that any attempt to distort this case through public actions taken by you or your agents will be matched with corresponding public actions aimed at ensuring that truth prevails.  

For the Fabiyi Family, 
Dr. Malcolm Fabiyi

HEALTH AND SAFETY: SAFETY TAKES ME HOME EVERYDAY

Only last week, one of my colleagues was returning home after closing late from site and he decided to use the ATM to withdraw some cash, but he was attacked by armed men who made away with his money and some of his  personal effects. Are there lessons to learn from this? How can we arrive safely every day?
In this week's edition, we shall be looking at arriving safely, especially during odd hours.

Be aware of your personal safety when out and about:
§  Be alert, walk confidently and keep to well-lit and populated areas.
§  Walk against the flow of traffic and, if possible, walk with another person.
§  Let someone know where you are going and the time you expect to reach your destination.
§  Carry a mobile phone and keep it safely with you.
§  If you feel unsafe, head for a well-populated area.
§  Be wary if someone in a car stops and asks for directions – keep a safe distance from the car.
§  Be aware of your increased vulnerability when wearing personal headphones.
§  Do not use ATM or expose any cash or attractive items like laptops, ipads, iphones, etc.during odd hours.

When at the bus stop;
§  Stand in well-lit areas near other people.

§  Hold your belongings very close to yourself
§  Be careful not to allow people come too close to you, and when they do, stay alert.
§  When using a taxi:
§  As much as possible, use pre-arranged cabs especially during odd hours.
§  Sit behind the driver.
§  Give clear directions as to where you want to go and if you are not on the agreed route, terminate the trip.
§  Consider sending the taxi number to a friend via SMS.

When Driving or being driven:
·      
Follow all company safe driving rules
·        Keep the vehicle always in a good shape so that it will not suddenly breakdown
·        Do not stop at odd locations
·        If you suspect that you are being followed, drive into a police station or into a busy location and park.
·        Do not drive on onion bulbs on the road or turn on the wiper and water if there is a broken egg on the windscreen, these are tricks by the robbers to stop you.
·        Discover other routes; do not enter the house by the same route every day.
·        Do not get home at a fixed time every day.
·        Be aware of the security risks around your home
·        Do not park vehicles at risky locations; by the roadside or close to generators.

SAFETY IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY.
