A lawyer has narrated a strange story about how a man spent 10 years in jail for killing his Landlord after he caught his wife sleeping with him, only for him to come out of Jail and find out that she has two boys and also nursing a third child for a neighbor.
The lawyer said that the man came home to discover that his wife was sleeping with his landlord and out of anger, he hit the landlord with a stool on the head and he died instantly.
After about five years of trial, he said that the man later regretted his actions, claiming that he does not know how many people his wife would be sleeping with now that he was in jail.
Following their argument in court that he was provoked to commit his actions, the judge gave him 10 years imprisonment, and when he came out of prison, he discovered that his wife already had two kids and nursing a third one for their neighbor.
The moral of the story being that one should not kill anyone because of a cheating partner.

The bullying of plus size women is something that has been going on for a long time. People tend to misjudge their looks by telling them to limit their eating habit or go to the gym so they can shed weights, which is very wrong because most of these ladies feel comfortable just the way they are.
Social media may not be a suitable place to be, especially if you’re oversized because of the negative comments you get from people with other mindsets. This can cause low self-esteem.
As a person, it shouldn’t matter which size you are because what really matters is how comfortable you feel in your body.
However, for this lady dating was never difficult since she’s got a beautiful face.. She gets a lot of admirers but the main issue is that every man she dates would come and go.
It seems these men get attracted to her beauty but can’t handle her weight.
she opened up on how no man stays in a relationship with her for long because her oversized body.

It was indeed an emotional moment as the immediate past American President, Donald Trump vacated the White House with his entire family, which included both his immediate and extended family. This comes after Joe Biden and his Vice, Kamala Harris were sworn into office today, January 20, 2021.
Recall that Trump was defeated at the polls during the November 2020 US Presidential election by the Democratic Party candidate, Joe Biden. In spite the fact that election was marred with lots of controversies, accusations and counter accusations, Joe Biden eventually emerged winner of the keenly contested election.
Many persons had thought that Donald Trump wouldn’t consent to a peaceful transition going by his utterances and some other actions, especially after he lost the election. But all that thoughts and fears were defeated today as Biden became the 46th President of the United States of America.
Unfortunately, Donald Trump’s time at the White House finally came to an end today, and this evening, photos have emerged as him and his beautiful family were leaving the seat of power after four years as the US President.

No fewer than eight persons were reportedly killed by armed bandits in a gun duel with residents of Dutsin Gari and Rayau communities of Maru local government area of Zamfara state.
Reports made available to newsmen confirmed that the bandits raided the two villages on motorcycles on Monday evening, January 18, 2021.
A resident, Malam Ibro Mamman, who claimed to have witnessed the horrible event told newsmen that the bandits stormed the two communities with the intention of kidnapping people but were countered by the villagers.
Mamman said the gunmen exchanged gunshots for several hours with the villagers who repelled their attack in full force.
“When the bandits realized that they could not succeed in their nefarious activity, they opened fire and killed six people, injured many before they moved to a nearby village called Rayau,” Mamman narrated.
He added: “In Rayau Village, the bandits also faced similar challenges from the villagers who were battle-ready on receiving the report of what happened in Dutsin Gari village.
“The villagers came out in large number and engaged the bandits in a gun battle where two of the villagers lost their lives and the bandits left without abducting anybody.”
The eyewitness revealed further that the bandits again entered the villages on Tuesday morning only to discover that the residents have fled to Kanoma town for fear of reprisal attack. Mamman noted that many houses and properties were set ablaze by the bandits as they could not find their targets on their return.
A video circulating online shows the founder and general overseer of the Resurrection Power New Generation Church Dr. Rev Anthony Kwadwo Boakye vowing to revoke the blessings and collapse the marriages of church members who leave his church after receiving their breakthroughs.
He sounded the word of caution to his congregants during a church service.
According to him, the privileges that his church members enjoy cannot be gotten in any other church, so if any of them tries to engage in opportunism by leaving after receiving their blessings under his leadership, he will take back all the breakthroughs.
He explained that while he hosts not less than three hundred weddings in his church, other churches have the privilege to do it only once a year, so his members must count themselves blessed.
“Where else do you find church members marrying every time?” he asked, stressing that ”some churches witnessed only one marriage the whole year but his church had 300 marriages.”
Dr. Rev Anthony Kwadwo Boakye was emphatic in warning that he will collapse the marriages of couples who dare leave the Resurrection Power New Generation Church after getting married under his leadership.
“If you make money, marry and give birth under my leadership but leave the church, I’ll take back the blessings and even collapse the marriage,” he threatened doom.
The man went on to send a message through the congregants present to those who have left his church that he will take all the wealth they gained while in the church.
”Listen well to this announcement, all those who came to church while poor and have made money but have left the church within the last one year, I’ll take back all their big shops and cars. Tell them, I’ll take everything back,” he announced.

He made specific reference to one Frimpong aka ‘Bolga leader’ who allegedly showed ingratitude to him after he helped salvage him and his wife’s childlessness, that he will take back their male child by making him return to where he came from.
”I’ll take back the child. I’m being vocal to everyone’s hearing. I’ll take the child,” Rev Dr. Kwadwo said.
Akeredolu had on Monday issued a statement giving herdsmen seven days to vacate all forest reserves due to the high rate of kidnapping in the state.
The Presidency has condemned the seven-day ultimatum given to herdsmen by the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, to vacate forest reserves, urging the governor ‘not to act outside the constitution of the country’.
Akeredolu had on Monday issued a statement giving herdsmen seven days to vacate all forest reserves due to the high rate of kidnapping in the state.
The governor also banned the movement of cattle within cities and highways, as well as night grazing.
He had said, “Today, we have taken major steps at addressing the root cause of kidnapping, in particular, and other nefarious activities detailed and documented in security reports, the press, and debriefings from victims of kidnap cases in Ondo State.
“As the chief law and security officer of the state, it is my constitutional obligation to do everything lawful to protect the lives and property of all residents of the state. In light of the foregoing, the following orders are hereby issued: All forest reserves in the state are to be vacated by herdsmen within the next seven days with effect from today, Monday, January 18, 2021.”
But reacting in a statement on Tuesday, Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari, Garba Shehu, condemned the action of the governor.
Shehu said Akeredolu, being a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and indeed a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, will be the least expected to unilaterally oust thousands of herders who have lived all their lives in the state on account of the infiltration of the forests by criminals.
The statement read, “The Presidency has been keenly monitoring events occurring in Ondo State and the ‘orders’ by the government of the state, ‘asking herders to vacate the forests in seven days.’
“What is clearly emerging, is a lack of consistency in messaging which in turn leads to various contradictions regarding accuracy and the intent behind the message. There is little to be said other than to call for restraint on both sides and urge the state government and the leadership of the Fulani communities to continue their dialogue for a good understanding that will bring to an urgent end, the nightmarish security challenges facing the state.
“Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, a seasoned lawyer, Senior Advocate of Nigeria and indeed, a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, has fought crime in his state with passion and commitment, greater sensitivity and compassion for the four years he has run its affairs and, in our view, will be the least expected to unilaterally oust thousands of herders who have lived all their lives in the state on account of the infiltration of the forests by criminals.
“If this were to be the case, rights groups will be right in expressing worries that the action could set off a chain of events which the makers of our constitution foresaw and tried to guard against.
“We want to make it clear that kidnapping, banditry and rustling are crimes, no matter the motive or who is involved. But, to define crime from the nameplates, as a number of commentators have erroneously done- which group they belong to, the language they speak, their geographical location or their faith is atavistic and cruel.
“We need to delink terrorism and crimes from ethnicity, geographical origins and religion—to isolate the criminals who use this interchange of arguments to hinder law enforcement efforts as the only way to deal effectively with them.
“The President, who swore to defend the constitution has spoken against the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in asking citizens of Northern origin to leave; he did not spare the group based in Sokoto, ‘Muslim Solidarity Forum,’ which asked the Bishop of Sokoto to leave and is prepared to do all that the law permits to protect citizens all over the country in their choice of where they wished to reside and are treated as equal citizens.

“The government of Ondo, and all the 35 others across the federation must draw clear lines between the criminals and the law abiding citizens who must equally be saved from the infiltrators. Beyond law and order, the fight against crime is also a fight for human values which are fundamental to our country
