MUST READ!!! Girl Goes Missing After Leaving Club With A Man

The Nation  reported this felt it should be shared so a lot of young girls can learn from it.

It’s a story about a 300level English Language student of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Annabel Nzubechukwu Edeh, who has not been seen since she left a night club with an unknown man many weeks ago in Awka, Anambra state.

Annabel had gone to the night club with friends on September 17th and as the group of girls prepared to leave, Annabel told her friends she was in need of money so would go home with a guy she’d met at the club and would return to school the following morning. It’s been 6 weeks and Annabel hasn’t been seen.
Read the full story as told my Oluchukwu Igwe, a 500l Chemical Engineering student of same school, after the cut…

They were six girls, who went to Lounge 24 Gaga, a nightclub in Awka, the Anambra State capital, on September 17. They are Calista, Uju, Lovelyn, Ada, Chika and Annabel. All of them are friends and live close to one another. When they returned to their hostels the following morning, one of them – Annabel – could not be found.

Where is Annabel? This was the question classmates of Annabel Nzubechukwu Edeh could not answer. The 300-Level English Language and Literature student of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) in Awka has not been seen anywhere, 43 days after she went to the night club with her friends.

Was she kidnapped? Is she dead? These are some of the questions being asked by her distraught family members and friends. She is the only girl in a family of three.

Annabel, 24, a native of Enugu State, was last seen on Wednesday, September 17 evening, when she left her Paradise City Hostel in Iyiagu Estate, Awka.

When she was leaving the club, Annabel reportedly left at midnight with a guy she met at the club. That was the last time she was seen.

Annabel’s friend and hostel mate, who simply gave her name as Ifeoma, said after clubbing, the girls decided to find a place to sleep before returning to their hostels. But Annabel, she said, told her friends she wanted to go with Mmiri, a male acquaintance, she met at the club. She was said to have told her friends that she was in need of money, which could have informed her decision to go away with the guy.

When she did not return in the morning, it was learnt that Ada and Chika called Annabel’s phone but were disappointed to hear a male voice claiming to have found the phone on the ground and asked the ‘owner’ to come for it.

Ada and Chika, it was gathered, retrieved the phone and contacted Annabel’s elder brother, Ifeanyi, who reported the matter at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) in Awka.

CAMPUSLIFE learnt that Ada and Chika were detained for alleged complicity but were later released on bail.

When contacted on the phone, it was learnt that Mmiri claimed Annabel left his house at 3:30am when she refused to enter his room.

But, after the conversation, Mmiri reportedly switched off his phone and stopped going to a popular bar, where he drinks with his friends. He is nowhere to be found.

Our correspondent’s efforts to speak with Annabel’s friends she went to the nightclub with were futile. All of them declined to comment on the issue.

Annabel’s roommate, Ukamaka, gave an account of what happened when she spoke to CAMPUSLIFE on telephone.

She said: “Annabel told me she was going to the club that evening. Her friends, Ada and Chika, waited in the compound till they were joined by their other friends. I had a premonition of the incident in a dream I had the previous night. I told her not to go to the club but she refused. When the other three girls arrived, they all left together. When she did not return in the morning, I called her line but nobody picked. Later, a man claimed he found it.”

Asked to describe the kind of person Annabel is, Ukamaka said that her roommate is a good Christian and hardworking, saying Annabel is a good tailor. “I believe Annabel is a victim of circumstance,” Ukamaka said.

Ifeanyi said his family remained devastated by the incident. “We are devastated at the moment. When I received the news, I travelled from Onitsha to Awka to report the matter at the police station. The matter is still being attended to at SCID and “B” Division. We have even gone spiritual to seek God’s help to find my missing sister. Our Dad is late but mum is highly disorganised.”

Ifeanyi said the matter had been reported to the UNIZIK management.

When CAMPUSLIFE visited Annabel’s mother in Onitsha, she fought back tears as neighbours consoled her. She said: “I warned my daughter to stay clear of bad friends, but she would not listen. When she was admitted in a hospital a few months ago, my spirit never accepted the kind of girls who visited her. Now, they have done their worst. I can’t see my daughter, now. Where is my only daughter? Annabel was seven months in my womb when my husband died.”

Mrs Edeh said she had consulted a prophet, who confirmed to her that her daughter is alive but held captive somewhere. She claimed that the prophet informed her that it was Annabel’s friends that facilitated her ‘abduction’ and threatened to sue them if her daughter did not return within days.
She added: “All I am asking is the safe return of my daughter. I have no other girl. If she was kidnapped, those holding her would have called us. I am confused. We are only praying to God and hoping that she returns home safe and alive. I am pleading with anyone, who knows her whereabouts, to give useful information that can help us to locate her.”

Court nullifies NFF election, sacks chairman and his executives

A Federal High Court sitting in Jos, Plateau state today October 23rd nullified the September 30th general election of the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, which saw Mr Amaju Pinnick elected as the President of the NFF. 


Delivering his judgement in the case brought against the NFF leadership by some unhappy members of the association, Justice Ambrose Allagoa insisted that his court ruling must be obeyed by the affected parties. He stated that an order he gave earlier on September 19th where he restrained the members from holding the election congress was disobeyed, that this one must be respected

“I have set aside all the proceedings and decisions of the Warri Extra Ordinary meeting of the 20th September and the Elective Congress of 30th September which were direct contravention of the orders of this court as granted on the 19th September. Nobody should foist on the court a complete case of hopelessness so that the principles of law and justice can be upheld. Its not enough to say that the order of court was wrongly made, no matter how unorthodox, its subsisting orders, unless set aside, remains law and must be respected” he said.

Meanwhile the NFF leadership say they will appeal the judgement

Wande Coal: Until Thy Album Come?


Just like the Samuel Beckett’s 1953 play Waiting For Godot, we have been waiting for Wande Coal.
Wande Coal first wowed us in 2006 when he featured in D’Banj’s Rundown/Funk You Up album in singles like Why Me which happened to be a national anthem. As a member of the defunct Mo’hits empire, he played a striking role in the CV album and his single Ololufe can be said to be one of the greatest love songs of our time (if you are below 30).
In 2009, Wande released his debut album Mushin 2 Mo’hits with singles like Bumper2Bumper which was raving hot, and on every playlist the M2M was on repeat.
Wande’s M2M undoubtedly can be said to be one of the most, if not the most sold out commercial albums in the history of the Nigerian music industry. The debut got Coal carting away with 5 headies in the 2010 edition of Hip Hop World Awards.
Wande enjoyed a massive hit and this got him several features and he was like the “hook master”.
But after sometime, Wande went cold and our ears longed for him. There were hear says that Wande had a fall out with his Mo’hits bosses. Nobody danced to Bumper2Bumper anymore. Something new was needed and nothing was forth coming.
But before we could say Jack Robinson, the ebony dude was back with Been Long You Saw Me to address his absence in the industry. And other singles followed.
After the Mo’hits breakup there were reports that Wande would be releasing his sophomore album in June 2013 under the Mavin records. But later on, Wande parted ways with Mavin.
It’s almost 2015, close to 6 years after the debut and we are still waiting.
Godot never came, we hope Wande comes with an album before we get too bored.

“No Future Collaboration With Davido At All” – Wizkid Speaks

ARE YOU ON BBM? Join Our BBM Channel For Exclusive Music & News Updates C00321B0C

Honestly, wizkid is the one beefing davido.

Wizkid doesn’t seem to want to have anything to want to ever do with Davido again and he seems pretty serious about it. Despite Davido congratulating Wizkid on the release of his second album which was supposed to spell down their alleged beef and open way for a possible future collaboration between two of Nigeria’s biggest artists… Wizkid has stood his ground and revealed that there will be nothing like that.

Wizkid who spoke with TheNET on Tuesday, October 14, 2014, was asked about a possible collaboration with Davido and he didn’t say more than replying tersely: ‘There is nothing like that.’

While a lot of fans pray that these two would let go of their feud and make good music together, it doesn’t seem like it’ll be happening anytime soon.

VIDEO:- T.B. Joshua Carrying Three Bags Of Rice

Few days ago we Posted a News about T.B. Joshua Carrying Three Bags Of Rice with Enough Images, See HERE If you Missed the News.

A picture of controversial Pastor T.B. Joshua carrying three bags of rice went viral this week within Nigerian social media and blogs.

While most commended Joshua for his humility and humanity, there were suggestions that the picture was ‘photo-shopped’. Others insinuated the image was nothing but a tasteless publicity stunt in the light of the recent tragedy that befell The SCOAN where over 100 died in a building collapse.

As a viewer of Emmanuel TV, I have actually seen the video clip of this particular humanitarian mission previously and managed to find the footage on YouTube. For clarification, this did not take place after the tragedy last month, putting to rest the allegation that this was an ill-timed publicity feat. So, for all the doubters and skeptics, here is video evidence of Pastor T.B. Joshua carrying three bags of rice in one of his numerous philanthropic visits to less-privileged areas.

See The List Of Nine Fake Universities Recently Shut Down By NUC

The publication of the affected institutions was published in the NUC weekly bulletin. Report says the Prof. Julius Okojie, the NUC’s executive secretary, signed the publication. He stated that the universities have been in existence for years and have just being extorting money from students who were given fake certificates.

The listed universities are those affected;

National University of Nigeria, Keffi (Nasarawa State);
North Central University, Otukpo (Benue State);
Christ Alive Christian Seminary and University, (Enugu state);
Richmond Open University, Arochukwu (Abia State) and
Saint Clements University, Iyin Ekiti (Ekiti State)
West Coast University, Umuahia, Volta University College, Aba, (Abia State) and the satellite campuses of Ambrose Ali University.

The publication also reveal that: “In addition to the closure, the following `Degree Mills’ are currently undergoing court actions; the purpose of these actions is to prosecute the proprietors and recover illegal fees and charges on subscribers.

“For the avoidance of doubt, anybody who patronizes or obtains any certificate from any of these illegal institutions does so at his or her own risk.

“Certificates obtained from these sources will not be recognized for the purposes of NYSC, employment and further studies.”

NUC also persuaded Nigerians to disconnect themselves from the institutions and their certificates.

While some are being closed, new private universities have been recommended to the president for approval.

NUC also stated that they are considering introduction of a pre-Doctoral Programme in the postgraduate studies in Nigerian universities. This was said while Prof Okojie was at an interactive session with Education Correspondents Association of Nigeria (ECAN).

He explained that the universities listed on the proposal sent to the president through the Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, Minister of Education have all being approved by NUC but would also receive the input and approval of the Federal Executive Council (FEC).

He said access to university education has been a challenge in the country with over one million Nigerians, who were, on annual basis, unable to gain admission into the limited tertiary institutions because of low carrying capacity.

The executive secretary of NUC has said, that NUC is considering the introduction of pre- Ph.D. programme in Nigerian universities based on the recommendation of some of the vice chancellors.

Boko Haram Allegedly Violates Ceasefire Agreement

It would be recalled that Nigeria’s Armed forces’ Chief Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh announced the ceasefire agreement on Thursday night.

On Saturday, two senior government sources said the ceasefire agreement aims to secure the release of abducted Chibok girls as early as Monday or Tuesday, declining to give further details.

On Friday night, however, alleged Boko Haram militants wreaked chaos in the village of Abadam, near Niger, killing at least one person and ransacking homes.

Another assault on the village of Dzur on Saturday morning left at least eight people dead.

Three other attacks in Michika local government area, Adamawa State, on Saturday killed dozens of people, witnesses and a local politician report to the Reuters and CNN news agencies.

The unidentified hoodlums suspected to be members of Boko Haram terrorist cell also have kidnapped a number of villagers.

As security sources confirm the attack, the government doubts if the attacks really were carried out by Boko Haram.

The authorities indicate that it could have been one of several criminal groups that are exploiting the chaos of the insurgency.

According to government spokesman Mike Omeri, who was interviewed by Reuters, Boko Haram representatives also deny involvement in the attacks.

Shocking:- How I Escaped From Ritualist’s Den In Ogun State (Photo)

A middle-aged woman, Mrs. Patience Igho, recently narrated how she escaped from kidnapper’s den in Agbara forests at the outskirts of Ogun State. The traumatized Igho said she could not believe what she saw inside the forest after she was drugged inside a commercial bus on her way to Boundary Market in Ajegunle, Lagos.

The distraught woman, who sells frozen fish told Crime Guard that she saw no fewer than 200 victims, who were held hostage. Consequently, she called on the relevant security agencies to quickly intervene and rescue the helpless people.

Narrating her ugly experience, she said:

“The incident happened in the early hours of the day. I left my house with N130, 000 to be deposited in the bank. I boarded a commercial bus with four women and two men already seated.

Nigeria Will Overcome Its Challenges And Not Collapse Before 2015 – Adeboye

General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has assured Nigerians that the country will overcome all the current security challenges including terrorism, unemployment, economic turbulence as well as the prediction of the collapse of the nation before 2015.

Speaking at the church’s National Headquarters in Ebute-Meta, Lagos where he conducted a worship service themed:

“A Sure House”, the man of God said rather than being troubled over these challenges, Nigerians should move closer to God, who has the ultimate solution to every challenge of life.

Pastor Adeboye who was represented by his Special Assistant on Administration and Personnel, Pastor Johnson Odesola said that since human efforts have failed to restore hope and peace in the country, it is crucial to seek divine intervention to numerous challenges confronting the country.

In his words: “The prayer that a new Nigeria will emerge by our father in the Lord is a prophetic word regardless of whatever the nation is going through now.

You will recall that Elisah prayed and prophesied in the midst of uncertainty and we see the result.

We trust God that history will repeat itself in Nigeria too.
Nigerians should shun all forms of unrighteousness, move closer to God with their heart and not with mouth and diligently seek the face of God in prayer”.

He emphasized the need for those in positions of authority to seek the face of God in everything they are doing while also admonishing the followers to adhere to the basic truth and biblical doctrines.

Speaking on the growing housing deficit in the country, Pastor Odesola said effective policies should be developed to address this as it is done in other parts of the world, adding that provision of affordable houses can address several social challenges in the country

The Characteristics of the Pure Vowel Sounds


Puji97's Blog

Subject     : Dictation.Semester  : 3. Lecturer  : Puji Siswanto, S.PdCredits     : 2 SKS.


The characteristics of the pure vowel sounds


Vowels are articulated when a voiced airstream is shaped using the tongue and the lips to modify the overall shape of the mouth. English speakers generally use twelve pure vowels and eight diphthongs. Moreover, vowels are produced when the airstream is voiced through the vibration of the vocal cords in the larynx, and then shaped using the tongue and the lips to modify the overall shape of the mouth.

If you try saying /i:/ /e/ /æ/ /Ŋ//ɔ:/ /u:/ out loud, you should be able to feel that your tongue changes position in your mouth, yet it doesn’t actually obstruct the airflow. Try moving smoothly from one sound to the next, without stopping. In addition, you will also be aware of the shape of your lips changing…
