How Misdiagnosis Led to Dora’s Death



When Mrs Dora Nkem Akunyili was the Zonal Secretary (South-east) of the Petroleum (Special) Trust Fund in 1998, Nigerian doctors gave her what many of her family members considered to be a health scare. They said she had a growth and needed surgery. Akunyili, then 44, decided to travel to the United States, first to get a second opinion and then undergo the prescribed surgery.

 The bill for the medical trip was $17,000, including $12,000 for the surgery. During pre-surgery check-up in the US, the doctors told her the Nigerian doctors had made a wrong diagnosis and that she did not need any surgery. It was said to be a minor issue that medication would solve.

What late Prof. Dora Akunyili said on hospital bed – Peter Obi

The immediate past governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, who visited the late NAFDAC DG in India last month, has spoken of the professor’s wish for Nigeria before she passed on.
According to a statement, Mr Obi said: “On behalf of the Akunyili’s family, I wish to officially confirm the death of Prof. (Mrs.) Dora Nkem Akunyili, OFR, in a Specialist Cancer Hospital in India this morning at 10 am, Nigerian Time, after a two-year battle with cancer.”

Body Of High School Student Omotayo Adeoye Found By Police In New York’s Hudson River


Omotayo Adeoye was a brilliant student who attends one of New York City’s elite schools, the high school of Math, Science and Engineering in Manhattan. Sadly, her body was found floating in the Hudson River just a week short of a citywide police search for her.
Adeoye, 17, had committed suicide on May 29th by jumping off into the Hudson River near the George Washington Bridge Thursday afternoon. It came after the young student had been caught cheating on a difficult German Language exam by her teacher, Eva Malikova, at the elite school. Humiliated in front of her classmates, Adeoye immediately left the school building, but not before leaving behind a suicide note.
The short note, later found by school officials and police read, “I just want to go away forever on the bottom of the river.”

Luscious Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson, in this interview wants ladies with big endowments to be proud of their bodies

About my size
I’m a Fante. I don’t think I’m a big girl. I think I’m just a ‘buddilious’ girl. I have a big butt and big boobs. I’m a Fante. Fante women are just like that, they are very curvy. It is something that I wished I had when I was just six years old. When I was in class six, I wanted it to go away. But you grow up and realized that the truth is that men want something they can hold on to. They may look at the skinny models, but they always know what they want in bed. It’s not ex-rated, but I’m just saying they (men) know what they want.

Go To Polling Booths With Charms, Aregbesola Urges Voters As Isiaka Adeleke Formally Declares For APC [Photos]

Osun State Governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, has tasked residents of the state to go to the polling booths on August 9, 2014 armed with charms and verses from the Quran and Bible.
The governor, who said this in Ikire on Tuesday during his campaign in the town, however, did not say what voters would use the charms and prayer verses for.
Speaking in Yoruba language, Aregbesola urged the people of the state to go out and cast their ballots and stay back until the result was announced to avoid rigging.
He described the Peoples Democratic Party as an assemblage of men who are promiscuous for asking young women to “dress to kill” while going to cast their ballots during the governorship poll.
The governor said, “Make sure you go to cast your ballots with everything. I am not saying you should go there with guns but the law does not frown against charms, verses from the Quran and psalms of the Bible.

MFM Bars Residents, Women in Trousers

The Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries has barred residents of host communities from passing through its Prayer City in Magboro.
The development has dimmed the hope of residents of the no fewer than 17 communities, whose access road was recently blocked, that the church may reopen the road.
Also, women in trousers, who have other business in the Prayer City, located at Magboro on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun State, have been barred from passing through the camp ground.
The MFM had on Saturday, May 10, blocked the access road to Magboro, Magada, Makogi, Abule Odo and Unity Estate among other communities, a move the residents claimed was not only surprising, but was done without consultation with them.

J-Lo And Casper Cheating Scandal: Transgender Model Speaks Out As Tearful Jennifer Lopez Heads Back To NY


As a tearful Jennifer Lopez heads back to New York without Casper Smart, Sofie Vissa, the transgender model caught in the middle of their rumoured split, exclusively tells Woman’s Day of her sexy secret picture exchanges with J-Lo’s toyboy.
While Sofie has more than 27,000 followers on Instagram, no one has paid her more attention recently than Casper, 27. The dancer, who’s been dating J-Lo, 44, for three years, began swapping near-naked pictures with Sofie after discovering her online.
“I sent him like five or six pictures,” Sofie says. “There were a couple of semi-explicit [ones] and then the last one I was completely nude. And he ‘liked’ the post.”
Sofie, a 23-year-old model from LA, says there’s no doubt Casper knew she was transgender from the start of their intimate chats.

2 Murderers Caught Having Sex in Fulton County Jail

Jasmine Jones Norris Speed
A faulty lock at the Fulton County jail led to a brief romantic interlude for a death row prisoner and a female inmate, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The incident took place in the medical wing at the jail last week, according to an official incident report obtained by the AJC.

Norris Speed admitted to jamming a lock so he could invite inmate Jasmine Jones into his cell for a quickie. But Speed told officers that Sheriff Deputy Michael Watts’ “unfortunate timing” prevented him from being able “to do anything” with the accused murderer.

Rihanna Twerks Up A Storm In Racy See-Through Nude Dress After Picking Up Fashion Icon Award

Risk taker: While Rihanna was honoured by the CFDA for taking risks with her fashion choices, it is highly unlikely they expected her to show up almost naked on MondayRisk taker: While Rihanna was honoured by the CFDA for taking risks with her fashion choices, it is highly unlikely they expected her to show up almost naked on Monday

She was honoured with the Fashion Icon Award at the annual Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards on Monday and Rihanna made sure all eyes were on her during - and after - the bash in a racy sheer embellished halter dress.
Putting every inch of her slim figure in the naughty outfit - custom made by designer Adam Selman and comprised of a total of 216,000 Swarovski crystals  - Rihanna left nothing to the imagination as she picked up her award before she then went on to enjoy her new accolade.
The singer celebrated her achievement in an equally saucy manner as she was seen twerking in her see-through gown after the ceremony.

Walking on Water: Easier Than It Sounds - [Photo+Video]


Walking on water is a miracle, right? Maybe not. Pretty much anyone can do it, as long as you have enough cornstarch to add to the water.
Combining cornstarch and water creates oobleck; a non-Newtonian fluid. That means it doesn’t behave like a typical fluid. While it does pour like a liquid, it acts like a solid when force is applied. As a result, pouring enough of it into a pool will allow you and your friends to run, walk, dance, or play soccer on the surface. The only rule is that you have to keep moving, otherwise it’ll gobble you up in a quicksand-like fashion.
Check out this group of people in Malaysia as they see what happens when you step on top of 8,000 liters of oobleck. I don’t know about you, but this definitely makes me want to host my own oobleck pool party this summer!

Putin Planning To Release Evidence Exposing 9/11 As An Inside Job


2014.05.20-mrconservative-537b750da4264-500x333
As tensions between the U.S. and Russia remain at an all time high comparable to that of the Cold War, it seems that strong-armed Putin has had just about enough of Obama’s petty nuisances. Several analysts have recently speculated that to put Obama in his place once and for all, Putin was set to release evidence (i.e. satellite imagery) in his position that revealed the 9/11 terror attacks as an inside job.

These so called “inside jobs” are better known as false-flag attacks in which they were specifically and strategically designed so as to deceive the public into thinking something that isn’t true. In other words, U.S. officials would plan and execute an attack on America and its people that would look as though a certain enemy entity had carried out the atrocity.
