Groom Dies From Food Poisoning On His Wedding Eve

Family members, friends and colleagues of a 32-year old groom named Yussuf Babatunde Babalola are currently trying to unravel the sudden death of the young man who was alleged to have been poisoned on the eve of his wedding.

Investigations revealed that the late Babalola woke up at about 6.30 a.m. on Thursday, 12 July, 2012, the day he was to be at the marriage registry, complaining of stomach upset to his bride, Kudirat.

She raised an alarm by calling on his friends when the ailment became unbearable. By the time he was taken to the hospital two hours later, he was clinically dead.

A close friend of the deceased who did not want his name mentioned told P.M.NEWS that on getting to his apartment on Wright Street, Ebutte –Metta, South west Nigeria, Babalola who was unconscious, was later taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital, Yaba but the doctor on duty referred them to Lagos Medical Centre, inside the Nigerian Railway compound where the deceased was confirmed dead.

A source told P.M.NEWS that one of the doctors told the family that a black substance was found on his mouth which shows that he might have died of poisoning.

Another friend told P.M.NEWS that before the late Babalola was buried on the same day at Atan Cemetery according to Islamic rite, his friends and family members separately called four doctors and a herbalist to further certify that Babatola was actually dead because of the mystery surrounding the way he died.

“We were told to go and bury him at about 3.30 when it was confirmed that Yussuf had died,” said his friend.

All attempts to speak with the bride who is eight months pregnant proved abortive as she was said to have been devastated by the groom’s death.

Apart from the registry, the late Yussuf Babalola was said to have also been planning to hold his engagement ceremony on Saturday, 14 July, 2012 at the Army Officers’ Mess, Yaba, Lagos and his friends had bought the traditional aso-ebi for the ceremony.

The question on the lips of sympathisers, family members and friends is who killed Yussuf?

Adeyinka Adebayo now Asiwaju of Yoruba

According to Vanguard, the Yoruba Council of Elders, YCE, yesterday conceded the controversial title of Asiwaju (leader) of Yoruba to the former Military governor of defunct Western Region, Major- General Adeyinka Adebayo (rtd).

Since the demise of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, who was the holder of the title, a lot of interests have evolved in the region on who occupies the coveted title.

The council of elders otherwise known as ‘Igbimo Agba Yoruba' and the entire Yoruba nation, in a memo approved the nomination and acceptance of the President of Igbimo Agba Yoruba, Major-General Adeyinka Adebayo (rtd) as the Asiwaju of Yoruba nation in Nigeria and diaspora forthwith.

But wait o...can there be two 'Asiwaju'? Former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu is an Asiwaju, abi? I'm Igbo, Please educate me! :-)

Native Doctor Impregnate His Daughter Nine Times!!

Agbofa Yao Hateka, the 47-year-old fetish priest who fathered nine kids with his daughter, has pleaded with a Sogakope Circuit Court to forgive him his sins as he would not do it again.

He has so far made two appearances in the Sogakope Circuit Court for having nine children with his daughter, four of whom were dead.
Agbofa Yao Hateka was in the Sogakope court on 12th and 13th July charged with incest.

According to the prosecutor, Inspector Emmanuel Atsor, the case was reported to the Dabala Police by the chief of Ashagborkope, Togbui Sekpetey II, who is also a tax collector.

The complainant told the police on June 7th 2012 that the accused was married to his biological daughter, Baby Hateka, with whom he had nine kids.

Yao Hateka allegedly impregnated Baby when she was 11 years old and subsequently had eight other children with her.
Out of the lot, there were now five kids aged 14, 12, 3, 2 and a month-and-a-half-old.

During her interrogation however, Baby Hateka told the police she had eight children with her father out of which three died, contradicting the accused person’s narration that he had only a two-year-old baby with his daughter called Dodzi.
The accused would not allow anybody to intervene as he allegedly threatened people with death if they meddled in his sexual relationship with his daughter.

He allegedly threatened to invoke the spirit of his gods to deal with meddlers. The accused told the court that he was both a farmer and a fisherman, although the prosecution witness claimed he was unemployed. Before his arrest, the accused told the police that his daughter suffered from sickle cell anaemia, and had come to stay with him from a cocoa-growing area.

Togbui Sekpetey II had earlier fined the accused a fowl so his daughter could be cleansed before reporting the matter to the police.
The case has been adjourned to 20th July 2012 for judgment.
