Lady goes missing for 3 weeks only to be found living with her boyfriend

A 25-year-old lady identified as Suzan Luka, went missing on the 24th of February 2017, after she left her school, Nasarawa State Polytechnic, Lafia, but did not return home.
The development caused severe grief among family and friends. Surprisingly, three weeks later, it was discovered that she had left home to go and be with a man.

Suzan's family got really worried after they received a call from her on the day she went missing, claiming that on her way back from school, she had met some people smoking weed and when they called to her but she did not answer, they began chasing her.

She told her cousin, whom she was living with, that she was hiding from the thugs in an uncompleted building. By the time her cousin got to the location, Suzan was nowhere to be found so, fearing the worst, they informed the police.

The search for Suzan who was assumed missing spanned across media houses. Flyers were printed and shared, friends were informed and eventually, an acquaintance came forward to tell the police that the missing woman had earlier hinted that she wanted to run from home and go visit her boyfriend since they don't grant her the freedom at home to go out.

Speaking about the matter, a family source told Linda that at that point, all efforts being made to find the girl ceased. Suzan eventually returned to Nassarawa by herself on Monday, 17th of March, 2017, armed with a convincing story, but before she could let that out, the acquaintance, whose house she stopped by first, asked her to come with her that she wanted to show her something then took her to the police. The 25-year-old was detained for two days during which police questioned her then she was released to the family of her cousins with whom she had been staying.

"Can you believe that? She left our house for three good weeks and went to stay with a man! We found out about this from a friend of hers who went to police and told them that she has been seeing the news everywhere that the girl is missing but she is not really missing. She said she told her before that since they don't allow her to go out, she's going to run away and make everybody look for her," her cousin revealed.

"When she came back, she went to her friend's house first and the friend deceived her that they were going to see something then she took her to the police station. The policemen detained her for exactly two days. They interrogated her and got a lot of information from her but they didn't pass the information along to us, so I don't really know what she told them. She has refused to say anything to us."

Because of her action, Suzan has now been sent back to her birth parents by the cousins who have housed her for years and taken care of her education. They revealed that they did so because they do not want any such incident to occur again.

"You know she was just like a cousin to us, but because of what she did my people now decided (we've had) enough of her. You know she has lived with us all her life. Her parents are still alive, she was just living with us as a cousin because my dad decided let's take care of her but since she has now grown and she feels this is the way she can pay us back, our family have handed her over to her own parents."

Still an entertainer in the US, Bigvai, who posted a video of self in hospital bed, wrote:

“So, this is how people die? I’m still speechless, I don’t know how to thank GOD enough, HE saved me from sudden death, HE put the devil and my enemies to shame, am grateful oh LORD…..

Victim forgives lady who poured acid on him to punish him

An acid attack victim, Iniubong Ime, has disclosed that he has forgiven his 20-year-old girlfriend, Lucy Daniel, who poured an acid on him.

According to the 24-year-old Ime, Lucy can go ahead and marry anybody she wants as his relationship with her has ended.



Here are excerpts from his interview with Daily Trust;

Daily Trust: How was your relationship with ex-girlfriend Lucy like?

Iniubong Ime: We dated for about a year and I discovered she is a troublesome person. She was causing trouble between me and my mother, my siblings and my friends, she caused trouble between me and everyone close to me, and succeeded in driving people away from me. So I
decided to quit. She initially left but later started coming back, pleading that I should accommodate her, and that she wasn’t working and didn’t have anywhere to stay. Rather than accommodate her, I got her a job and also rented an apartment for her.

Thereafter, I told her that I had gone beyond my ability and she could continue her life from there. I pleaded with her to understand that we could no longer date. That was last year. She relaxed for a while and this year, she started coming around again. She would come at ungodly hours, so I told her that I didn’t welcome such visits and whenever she came around I would send her back.


nage.jpg

DT: How did she take it?
Ime: Of course, not peacefully. Even when she wasn’t coming around, she was always monitoring my movement and I knew it. But I didn’t bother because I had nothing to do with her anymore. Sometimes, when she spots me with anyone, male or female, she wouldn’t care to know who the person was and would just begin to insult them.

DT: How did the acid attack happen?

Ime: On Monday, March 6, 2017, I went to bed early but was woken up by a sound outside my door at about midnight. When I woke up I saw that my window net had been torn and I decided to find out who was at the door. When I opened the door, I saw it was Lucy, and before I could say anything she splashed the acid on me and ran away. I was in serious pain, and the burns on my body are severe. The only thing I could do at that point was to rush to a bucket of water which I usually kept in my room and poured it on myself with the hope that it would ease the pain. I then began shouting for help and people started coming out, including my siblings who were in the next apartment. They brought me to the hospital.

DT: After the incident, what was the reaction of her family?

Ime: Her mother was very angry. She is still not feeling well because she is hypertensive, so I can understand with her. She called me and said she would have nothing to do with Lucy henceforth. I was even told that the mother made efforts and apprehended her, took her to a local government chairman and was to be handed over to the police the next day. I don’t know what the chairman did and Lucy escaped from his custody. She’s still at large.

My aunt has since reported to the police. But our major concern now is for me to recover. My treatment bills are being footed by my family and friends and it has not been easy. You know that injuries of this magnitude need a lot of care and money. So, I will appreciate if government at any level, interest groups and kind-hearted individuals can come to my aid so that I can recover.

DT: When you recover, will you seek vengeance?

Ime: That wouldn’t solve anything. I have decided to let it go and forgive her. In fact, I forgave her from the very day it happened. I thank God I’m still alive. I won’t take her back because I had long broken up with her before the incident. But I can relate normally with her. I have no hard feelings towards her. We won’t be lovers again, but she won’t be my enemy either.

DT: Did you at any point promise to marry her?

Ime: Not at all. I don’t make promises I cannot fulfill. I only told her that if we were meant for each other, destiny would bring us together. I however advised her that if she saw any other suitor, she could go ahead and marry him.

Sad story of how a Nollywood scriptwriter suddenly died after receiving phone call from home (photo)

Nollywood script writer, director & producer Chike Bryan Nnamani, a father of five, has died after he received a call from home while on his way to work, suddenly developed a stroke and died hours later after he was admitted at Lagos State University Teaching hospital.


Chike Bryan's colleague narrated what happened. Here's his story:

I never knew we could be close; never expected to weep for a friend who turned out to be a buddy. A guy who held no grudge, malice or hate in his good heart against another. Today, he’s no more. His bit is done here on earth. I will always remember him. 
A guy I have worked so closely with in almost 10 months. Suddenly he disappear from my life. Death, O death, why? 
He woke up this morning hale and hearty. He had breakfast at a friend’s and was on his way to the office. As he was driving down in the friend’s car he received phone call from
home about some happenings, there he lost his cool.

Afterwards, the friend asked him to calm down no matter what but it was too late. My buddy, the one I call CBN, his initials, suddenly developed stroke, throwing up non stop in the friend’s car. 
Praying fervently for him, our friend made a turn and drove on neck break speed to his house where he picked his wife and rushed him to the hospital where he was admitted but later referred to to LASUTH in Ikeja. 
On getting to LASUTH, the wife was told the hospital could not admit him for lack of bed space. For almost 5 hours my buddy was hanging on to dear life without treatment. How callous can some medical personnel be! An emergency case was treated with so much nonchalance. 
So much grief, sorrow, and tears in his home. CBN left behind a young wife and 5 lovely kids. I pray God to give the family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. 
A Chelsea fan or better still, a lover of good football who doesn’t spare Arsenal and it’s gaffer when they slip in any match. A pal who has tried severally to convert me into being a member of the ‘blues’ family. So this great guy won’t be there to yab me week in week out about my dear own Arsenal. 
Perpetual light shine upon him O’ Lord.
I shall truly miss you CBN. Sleep in the bosom of the Lord.Adieu Chike Bryan Nnamani.

That akward moment when a thief returned a stolen car 21 years after

A woman whose car was stolen in Johannesburg 21 years ago couldn't believe her ears when police told her it had been found.


However, seeing is believing, and when Merna Meyer got to the Newcastle police pound, she had no doubts that it was her Ford Laser,



According to SA news medium, Netwerk24:
"I recognised the sporty look, red and green stripes on the sides and tow bar. Even the colour is still the same beige."
The front looked a bit different and the steering wheel had been replaced with a racing one, she said at North West University's Potchefstroom campus on Thursday.
Meyer was full of praise for warrant officers Gary Holmes and Derick Putter of the Newcastle car theft unit for tracking her down. They spent months trying to find her because the car had been registered in her maiden name, Pretorius. "They kept on trying, until they phoned me two months ago. When I picked up the phone, a policeman said: 'We've had a hard time tracking you down, where have you been hiding?'" Meyer was in her 20s when the car was stolen outside a friend's house in Melville in 1996. She had just resigned from the SABC and was due to leave for the UK a few days later to do a course in animation.

After reporting the car missing, Meyer said she had never heard from the police again.

The Newcastle police became suspicious when the alleged owner of the car came to the police station in 2016 to get a vehicle clearance certificate. They noticed that it had false serial numbers and, using chemicals, managed to uncover the original ones.

No arrests have been made yet.

Being married does not mean that you are going to be happy, unless we want to deceive ourselves | Read singer 9ice's new interview

Singer 9ice has hit back at those asking him to get married saying his happiness is all that matters. The father of 4 children from 3 women told Vanguard when asked if he would give ex-wife, Toni Payne another chance if she asked for it:
I am very lucky and I am happy with what I have. Being married does not mean that you are going to be happy, unless we want to deceive ourselves. 
She’s with me and we are both happy. She’s living her life while I’m living my own life. Happiness is the most important thing. Don’t let your family push you into doing anything you don’t like. If you want to stay in marriage, all well and good. But if you think not getting married gives your happiness, don’t marry. It is not by force that one must marry. God is not going to punish anybody who refused to get married.
On how he runs his home, he said
 How I run my home is different from how you run your own home. I might not be the one running the home. It might be the mothers of my kids who are running the home in my absence and they are doing it perfectly well. And the glory will come to me. When it comes to marital issues, it is a game of luck. Nobody can come and tell me that I’m perfect that’s why I’m married. We all know how it’s being done. People have issues in marriage everyday. What I want in my life is happiness and I’m having it now. And I’m loving it. Marriage or no marriage, I am happy and I have my children. That’s the important thing to me. Another source of my happiness is my focus on my music. If you are happy, you can make the next person around you happy. What I want in life is happiness, whether I get in marriage or out of marriage, is irrelevant to me.

'We've got incredible talent here and the world needs to know”

This week, CNN’s ‘African Voices’ features Mo Abudu, one of Africa’s most prominent media figures, who has operated across both television and film in her career.


Reporting from Lagos, Nigeria, the programme joins Abudu in her studio, where she serves as CEO of EbonyLife Television and EbonyLife Films.

Explaining how she began her career in media, Abudu tells ‘African Voices’:

“I wanted to be known for something. I wanted to do something that would change the world, but I just couldn't figure out what it would be.”
In 11 years, Abudu has moved from hosting her own TV show to owning and running one of Nigeria’s most premier television networks and a film studio.

Abudu explains to ‘African Voices’ how significant she feels it is to be operating at the highest level
of her industry:
“It's incredible the impact that media has on our lives. It's important for us, as people of colour and as a black person sitting here today, I know how important it is to have people I can look up to that represent me in media.”

Growing up, Abudu lived between Nigeria and England, which eventually shaped her future goals in media, despite experimenting with many different hobbies during her childhood. Abudu explains to ‘African Voices’:
“At one point I wanted to dance, I wanted to be a model, I wanted to write. It's interesting that I'm doing what I'm doing now, because you go all the way around in life doing different things, until you finally get to a point where you know you have found that thing that God wants you to do.”
The programme hears how her first foray into media began with a talk show in 2006 called ‘Moments with Mo’, where Abudu interviewed the likes of Hillary Clinton, Christine Lagarde and several notable heads of state from across Africa.

‘African Voices’ accompanies Abudu around the studios of EbonyLife Television, which she founded in 2013, and Abudu explains the differences she found between serving as a host and a media owner.


Abudu tells the programme:
 “The hardest part about the work of what we do is that sometimes people don't see the vision the way you see the vision. I know I have a responsibility to share the vision and communicate it for them to see it so they can buy into it.”
EbonyLife Television airs in both the United Kingdom and across the Caribbean, whilst some of the films produced by the network have taken place through deals with global brands such as Disney.

For Abudu, the success of EbonyLife just further demonstrated the potential within Africa:
 “We've got incredible talent here and the world needs to know. That's why it's important for us to ensure that EbonyLife Television as a platform can sit in a global space because the world must respect us, they must see us and must understand who we are as Africans. Especially this generation… There are so many stories that we have not told in Africa that I think that we can share with the world.”

How a Corp member died in Akwa Ibom due to doctor's negligence

Yesterday was a BLACK Thursday for NYSC Corp members serving in Abak, Akwa Ibom State.


One of them, a Batch A Stream 1 corp member, Abraham popularly called Ab,  fainted during a football match, was rushed to a hospital where he lost his life after the medical doctor on duty allegedly refused to attend to him.

According to Facebook user, Comr Dokubo, the corp members had gathered yesterday at the Government Technical College (GTC) field for the ongoing football tournament which was played by Corp members serving in Abak.

Not up to ten minutes in the first half, a Batch A Stream 1 corp member, Abraham popularly called Ab,  fainted at the field. Dokubo's story continues below:
Ab was rushed to Mercy Clinic Abak, at Mercy Clinic we saw the highest level of man's inhumanity to man. 
When Corp Members arrived luckily we met a doctor he instructed that we first get the card while others went to get the card we pleaded with the doctor to run some test the doctor refused before we will say Jack the doctor have disappeared into thin air. 
An elderly woman who was a nurse tried her bit, few minutes later a Reverend Father came prayed for the boy and personally begged the doctor for more than 40minutes before the doctor came to see what was going on. 
He injected Ab only God knows what he injected Ab with and instructed that he be transferred to Teaching Hospital Uyo.
Ab had given up the ghost before he arrived Teaching Hospital Uyo. 
The question is, if the doctor had attended to our brother, would what is happening to us now happened?
I think the answer is a NO! 
Yesterday we met a medical practitioner who has no human sympathy in his world.
We live in a country that has no medical security for her citizens what a shame.
There are so many questions but we leave it to God. 
May God grant his family the fortitude to bear the loss. May the Soul of the departed rest in peace, Amen.

Lagos lagoon suicide: Ifa priest offers solution to Oba of Lagos

Many people, including medical experts, seem to be pointing to depression as the possible cause for Dr Allwell Oji’s tragic suicide. However, two renowned Ifa priests have maintained a different stance.


They believe that the likely cause of Dr Allwell Oji's decision to commit suicide was either because he was controlled using an African traditional technique or the lagoon is hungry and angry.


 In an attempt to solve the mystery of what really caused Dr Oji's demise, NewTelegraphonline consulted Ifa priests, Chief Omo-Oba Olorunwa Ayekonilogbon and Chief Yemi Elebuibon, another well-known Ifa priest. Chief Omo-Oba Olorunwa Ayekonilogbon:
 “Considering that it was after Oji received the call that he took his life in such a cruel manner, speaks volume. That a bird cried at night and a child died in the morning could not be wished away as a mere coincidence.
“It is either he was controlled using an African traditional technique or the lagoon is hungry and angry.
If he was controlled through African traditional way, no matter how he tried to evade it, he could still have looked for or waited to get near water before taking his life. You also know that our religion believes in destiny, it could have been his destiny as well. 
Again, if you look at the rate of deaths in the lagoon in recent time, via suicide mostly, it is equally possible the water is hungry and angry.
What His Royal Highness, Oba Rilwan Akiolu of Lagos, needs to do now and urgently too, is to assemble credible traditionalists, I mean Ifa priests, to find out why the lagoon has suddenly become angry. All what the Babalawos need do is get close to the water, take a little for consultation. Ifa is capable and would surely reveal why all these things are happening.
Until that is done, we might be chasing shadows.” 
Chief Yemi Elebuibon spoke in a manner that suggests that Oji could have been ‘programmed’ (hypnotized) to do what he did:
“It is a great offence for a person to commit suicide; an abomination. Whoever does that is considered to have brought dishonor to his/her family.
“Yet, the traditional belief behind suicide is that some people do not just commit the act on their own, but for some mystical interventions. However, some people could find themselves in critical and unpleasant situations, and opt for suicide as the last resort instead of living to face the problem.
Whenever it happens proper inquiry is set up by the king or head of the community where it occurred to find the cause of the problem and an Ifa priest is mostly called upon to prescribe atonement to cleanse the city.”

Lagos woman transforms into an owl in Egbeda, Lagos (photos, video)

Last Monday at Boundary road Shasha, Akowonjo area Egbeda in Lagos, a woman, who a Nigerian pastor addressed as a witch, was accused of transforming into an owl.


Photos went viral after Pastor Stephen Ihesiabia, the General Overseer of The Lord's Army Ministry, shared them on Facebook. He had claimed that the woman who was allegedly in the form of an owl, was flying either going to or from a meeting when she crash landed after thunder struck her.

Sources around the environs at that moment said the big black bird began to struggle with a dog and people came out and hit the bird with a broom and it turned to this woman. 
Here's the video of the moment after the alleged owl turned into the woman.

6 places you should never toast a Nigerian Girl



Please read and tell us if you agree!

Some Nigerian guys tend to toast (woo) any girl they are interested in without even considering the time and place. Not minding the location and with so much confidence, they approach you and begin to run their mouths, spitting lines they have specially practiced for wooing girls. Oftentimes, the thinking of certain guys is that they want to take the opportunity to toast the girl as they may not meet her again. That’s true. However, you should be conscious of the places you intend to hit on a woman. Jumia Travel, the leading online bo0king agency identifies 6 places you should never toast a girl.

Hospital


Even if she is Miss Nigeria, you should not toast a girl at the hospital. You don’t know her purpose at the hospital. You appear from nowhere to woo her. You are just disturbing her and wasting your time as she will not answer you.

At work

You hear what it is called work. She is very busy at work and you still want to collect her number or you want to ask her out? She will just ignore you and at the end of the whole episode, you will be embarrassed. Well, some girls will have pity on you and walk you out.

Church/Mosque

The Church is a place to listen to the word of God and receive anointing. The same for the mosque. These places are not hubs for chasing women. But it is today. That doesn’t it make right.

In danfo buses/BRT Stations


Imagine in serious traffic (even when there is no traffic) inside one of those Lagos’s rickety danfos and these guy sitting beside is trying to get your attention. The girl will even be angry that under such harrowing and uncomfortable situation you are toasting her. What she just wants is to get home. You are a distraction. For BRT stations, you see a girl standing in a long queue, you want to woo her. That is a wrong time.

Cinema

We all go to the cinema for different reasons. Some go there to search for potential lovers. But the cinema is a place where you to enjoy the movie you paid for and leave. So, enjoy your movie and when it is over you can go talk to whomever you are interested in. Don’t do this immediately after the movie, though.

Her father’s house

When a Nigerian father sees their daughter with a man, they think about all sorts of things like she has joined bad gang. Most of which are negative. Hence, quite a number of girls don’t like guys wooing them in front of their father’s house especially if they are meeting you for the first time.

Dino Melaye's certificates scandal depeens! See his 'third class' ABU statement of result + he had only 3 credit in his WASC results

The qualification scandal  that has enveloped the senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District at the upper chamber of the National Assembly, Dino Melaye, has deepened.

Documents obtained exclusively by Saturday PUNCH through painstaking and thorough investigations showed that the embattled senator has a Bachelor of Arts certificate in Geography from the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Kaduna State.

The statement of results reads,
“This is to certify that Daniel Jonah Melaye having completed an approved course of study and passed the prescribed examinations as, under the authority of the Senate been awarded the Bachelor of Arts (Geography) with Third Class honours.”
The statement, issued by the Office of the Registrar, Academic Office and dated February 3, 2000, was signed by B.B. Mshelthlila.

There are, however, certain discrepancies that beg for more clarifications. For instance, in the
statement of results, his name was given as “Daniel Jonah MELAYE.”

Punch adds that checks by one of their correspondents on https://abu.edu.ng/ revealed that Geography is in the Faculty of Science and not the Faculty of Arts as reflected in the statement of results.

Also, in the senator’s NYSC discharge certificate, which was issued on July 8, 2001, his name read “Melaye Daniel” and not Daniel Jonah as shown in the statement of results.

Also, in the diploma certificate issued to him by the University of Jos on August 3, 2006, his name read “Daniel Dino Melaye.”

He was issued an Advanced Diploma certificate in Law, Security and Conflict Resolution. He finished with ‘Lower Credit’ on August 3, 2006.

However, in his Senior School Certificate in 1992, his name read ‘Melaiye Daniel Jonah O.’ with Melaye being wrongly spelt.


In the result, he had P8 in English Language, P8 in Mathematics, P8 in Geography, P8 in Chemistry, C5 in Christian Religious Knowledge, P7 in Economics, C6 in Biology and B3 in Agric Science.

Melaye’s trouble began on Monday, March 20, 2017 when Sahara Reporters alleged that the senator did not graduate from ABU for his first degree, against his claim that he studied Geography in the prestigious institution.

The news medium also alleged that Melaye, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory, bribed his Head of Department, who assisted him to forge his transcript.

SR also said some lecturers in the Geography Department insisted that Melaye did not graduate from the department and that his name was not on the graduation list because he failed five compulsory courses.

Following the report, Melaye dismissed the allegations, daring the news medium to sue him if it had authentic evidence to back its claims. While speaking on the floor of the Senate, Melaye also addressed himself as an “authentic graduate” of ABU.

The PUNCH says they contacted ABU to verify the conflicting information, the institution’s Information Officer, Adamu Mohammed, promised that the institution would come out with its position on Wednesday, which it failed to do as of the time of filing this report.

It will be recalled that in furtherance to his defence, Melaye had reportedly claimed that he obtained degrees from the prestigious Harvard University, London School of Economics and Political Science and a post-graduate degree from the University of Jos.

But in a swift response to an enquiry, Harvard University, in a statement from the Registrar’s office, on Thursday noted that Melaye was not a graduate of the institution as he only completed a week-long leadership seminar in November 2016.

The London School of Economics equally responded on Thursday, saying there was no proof on the institution’s database that Melaye obtained any degree from the school.

But on Thursday, Dino filed a N5bn libel suit against Sahara Reporters at a FCT High Court.

Thin Tall Tony finally speaks on the 'blow job' he got from Bisola while in the #BBNaija house

Thin Tall Tony has opened up on his marriage after leaving the Big Brother House.According to him, he respected orders from his wife not to reveal his marital status. Read excerpts from his interview with The Nation

Do you think that you could have earned more favour from fans if you had told the truth about your marriage?


I respected myself and respected the orders from my wife not to disclose my marital status; to keep my family out of it. Also, while in the house, there’s no lie that I do like Bisola a lot and I could have taken it a step further but remembering what took me into the house in the first place; I could have led her on, could have also gotten to the part where maybe sex would have been involved. Also I tried as much as I can to protect her because I knew where I was coming from and that’s what I did. Let’s not forget that it is a game and we were all playing a game.
Are you having problems with your marriage in any ways?

No, I’m not. (Laughs) My marriage is safe. The only thing that I’m looking forward to is kissing my wife and holding my kids.Since I left the house – to be honest – I have not spoken to anyone apart from my wife and she hasn’t said anything embarrassing yet.
One of the comments that I read was that they felt that I played the game the way I should have, and sticking to the whole thing of keeping my marriage private and not allowing anyone know.

How do you feel now, knowing that your strategy of philandering with Bisola and TBoss didn’t work for you?

To correct that, I didn’t play with anyone’s emotion. I tried as much as I can to know who these ladies were. For me, I was more into Bisola based on what I would be able to learn from her as an artiste like myself. I and Tboss had no connection whatsoever because even after the house, we won’t be able to work together; she is on a different level and Bisola is also on a different level that is also my own line. So, I connected only with Bisola.

 Bisola did give you a ‘head’ in the house, were you really going to lay her when you brought out those condoms on the night before your eviction?

(Laughs)I hear that the rumour is flying; maybe it would take me a long time to try and clear that. Bisola did not give me a head in the house. We were talking under the sheets; we always talk under the sheets. That’s the only time we have our moments together to just talk outside the cameras. That’s also where we talked about laying things straight because even when she had an opportunity to come out openly; if there was anything we would have told Ebuka, we didn’t.
But mostly, a lot of people did hear when she said Tony is a gentleman and Tony did not do things that you probably thought he did. I would wait for her to come out and if she has a different opinion which I do not believe that she will; I know what happened and I can only tell you. You are allowed to believe what you want to believe but nothing did happen.

How has your wife reacted since you left?

My wife has been very supportive and she just wants me to come home but right now, we are doing the interviews and the rest. I should be able to spend that much family quality time with her. We need to sit down and strategize on how to move forward with everything and also try to clear the air. I also don’t want it to look like I’m putting her on the spot but funny enough that’s what comes with new environment that we find ourselves, but she has been very supportive and I am very humble and thankful to have someone as supportive as my wife.

New details reveal how family pressure pushed Lagos Doctor Allwell Orji into suicide

Fresh insights have emerged as to why Allwell Orji, a 35-year-old medical doctor with the Papa Ajao branch of Mount Sinai Hospital, decided to take his own life by jumping into the lagoon in Lagos last Sunday.

A close associate of the deceased doctor told The Nation that he (Orji) once confided in him that he was fed up with life and “wanted to end it all.”

He said:
“We were close and we often discussed about his life. He was a brilliant young man and he liked helping people. He was in the habit of taking part in free medical outreaches and he loved to study.
“Despite his condition, he was still studying further. He ought to be rounding off his post-graduate studies which would have enabled him to become a consultant,” the young associate said.

Although it was gathered that the deceased medical practitioner was a sickle cell anaemia carrier, the associate, who pleaded not to be named, said the deceased doctor sometimes had moments of mental instability.

The young man added:
 “Sometimes it happened like a convulsion, and it even embarrassed him at his place of work while he was busy with a patient. Although the family did their best to manage the situation, there were times when he and some members of the family exchanged words because they taunted him for acting abnormally.
“His frustration heightened when his father died about four years ago and some family members believed the burden of his health condition contributed to the father’s death. These were some of the reasons he told me at that time that he wanted to end it all, but I tried to encourage him with the word of God”.
The close ally also said that the late doctor’s mother had tried to get him a wife but it did not work out. He said the mum, a wealthy woman who owns a number of vehicles, also hired a driver for the doctor as a way of monitoring his movement to prevent him from taking his own life since he had exhibited such tendencies.

“The jeep (SUV) he was riding belongs to the mother and she also got him a driver to take him around. The mother tried to arrange marriage for him at a time but it did not work. The deceased’s younger brother is already married and his sister is also a medical doctor,” the source said.
When one of our correspondents visited the Odunukan residence of the deceased on Thursday evening, a sober atmosphere pervaded the entire street. One of the residents, who identified himself simply as Mr. Oluwole, recalled that Oluwole had attempted suicide about four years earlier, adding that he saw Dr. Orji walking past the Saturday before his death.

Oluwole said: “We were here four years ago when he wanted to jump from the top of the storey building owned by his family. His family members do not relate with other people in the neigbourhood, and it was the same thing with the late doctor. I often saw him walking on the streets bespectacled on days he was not on call at the hospital. He walked like someone who was thinking too much.”
Oluwole also believed that things could have turned out differently if the deceased doctor’s family had not changed his driver.

He said: “It won’t be out of place to describe him as a recluse. He was not on the social media, neither did he engage in any social activity.
“I believe things would have turned out differently if the family did not change his former driver. The former driver would have suspected and could have tried to stop him once he ordered him to stop on the   bridge.  I am not sure his new driver was well briefed on his medical condition.”
Colleagues recall last day at work

A colleague of the deceased, who did not want to be named, said that Orji’s last day at work was like every other.

He said: “He was cheerful on that day and attended to patients in his usual cheerful manner. There was no slightest indication that something was amiss or anything to indicate that he was depressed or bothered by something. If there was any sign, it was not obvious at all. If there was anything amiss, that would be his personal life which, of course, we couldn’t have been part of,” the colleague said.
A nurse at the hospital, who fought back tears as she spoke, also described the deceased Orji as a cheerful individual.
 “Everybody here will miss him. He was a jovial person. He loved his work. He was someone we enjoyed working with. That Friday was his last day at work here,” she added.
