The news making the wave has it that Angola bans Islam. We at NaijaOpenMouth believe that there should be freedom of worship and religion, so the big question is that why this decision? An unconfirmed report states that Mosques in the country have been closed down and some even demolished.
According report attributed to The Guardian on November 22, the Angolan Minister of Culture Rosa Cruz e Silva said that “the process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights and so their mosques would be closed until further notice.”
To further confirm the ban on Islam, yesterday November 24, Angola President José Eduardo dos Santos was quoted saying that the country is working toward putting an end to Islamic influence in Angola once and for all while the Governor of Luanda, Bento Bento, said that “radical” Muslims are not welcome in the country and that the Angolan government will not be legalizing mosques or other places of worship for Muslims.
NaijaOpenMouth urges the rest of the world to call the Angola government to order, since religion issue is a very sensitive matter and banning Islamic religion is an infringement on their fundamental human right to Freedom of religion and worship.

Often, after worship, pastor Valdeci would take us to where the funds were kept at the back of the Church and asked us to have Oral sex with him until the Holy Spirit would come through ejaculation”. This is the testimony of one of his victims.
At the time of this report the pastor has been already in Jail.

Is this a convincing reason for him to act in such manner that brought shame to our their country?

News reaching us however affirms that Saka has changed camps and pitched his tent with rival telecoms giant MTN; and a new MTN ad campaign proves this fact.
MTN had just commenced their television commercial for the recently activated Number Portability Scheme with Saka excitedly announcing he has ‘upgraded’ to MTN. The ad starts with Saka dressed in green traditional attire only to transform into a bright yellow attire as he leads a music band.
‘I don port o, I don port go MTN. I don upgrade to MTN‘, Saka sings and dances. Credible sources confirm that Saka got paid a whooping N20m for this new deal.

Justus Esiri mentored me—Joke Silver
What do you want me to say about the death of uncle Justus Esiri? I am really confused and devastated. I started career with him. It is so depressing. He lived a fulfilled life, he loved his job and he was also a gentleman. We thank God that he achieved what he supposed to have achieved in life. At least, he has a son who is a superstar. I acted with him in the early 80’s though I cannot remember the title of the movie now. It is all about how well he has lived.

Just a few days after the death of his wife, Andrew Harvey, the widower of flamboyant Nigerian musician, Goldie Harvey, who passed away on Thursday night, has released several photographs of their time together, including those of their wedding and her childhood.
Goldie’s husband opened up, read the interview below culled from Thenetng.com.
When did you wed her? And were you still married as at when she passed yesterday?
We wed in December 2005 and were very much married when she passed indeed I was talking to her on arrival in Lagos before the fateful event
I see you moved back to England. Do you have another family?
I work in Malaysia, we have a private home in UK, I do not have a second family
Also did you have kids together?
No kids, we were planning this year
There had been speculation for many years that she was married to an ‘oyinbo’ man. But no one could lay hands on anything. Why did you keep it a ‘secret’?
Our private life is nothing to do with work life, there has to be a balance
“With a deep sense of loss, we announce the shocking death of our darling music star, Goldie Harvey. Goldie, 31, died on Thursday after she complained of a severe headache shortly after her arrival from the United States where she went to witness the Grammy Award. She was rushed from her Park View, Ikoyi, Lagos residence to her official hospital, Reddington, Victoria Island, Lagos, where doctors pronounced her dead on arrival at exactly 7:30pm in the evening.
We consider this period a gloomy moment for us and the entire Nigerian music industry in view of the circumstance in which she passed away; the abundance of talent she exhibited in her short but eventful music career and the various opportunities her trip to the United States of America would have availed her. She is survived by her father, step- mother, brothers and sisters. We deeply sympathise with her family and fans all over the world and very grateful to all and sundry, especially, the vibrant Nigerian media for their concern and prompt reportage. We shall keep everybody informed as events unfold as we are devastated by the sudden loss.”
Below is an official press statement from Stephen Keshi;
My attention has been drawn to reports in the media that I have resigned my appointment as the Head Coach of Super Eagles of Nigeria.
While I have had cause to express my displeasure over some issues that happened in the course of our participation in the AFCON 2013, which my team won by the grace of God, especially concerning my relationship with the Nigerian Football Federation, I have since had opportunity to discuss the various issues with all concerned.
I am therefore pleased to say that I have reconsidered my position and have decided to continue with my job.
I want to thank the Honourable Minister of Sports, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, for his swift and kind intervention.
After nineteen years of waiting, the Super Eagles yesterday defeated then stallions of Burkina Faso with a lone goal scored by midfielder Sunday Mba.
Congratulations Nigeria…Congratulations Super Eagles
May this be the beginning of good things coming to Nigeria……Amen
Here is the official Vatican translation of Pope Benedict’s statement on his resignation.
I have convoked you to this Consistory, not only for the three canonizations, but also to communicate to you a decision of great importance for the life of the Church.
After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry. I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering.
However, in today’s world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfil the ministry entrusted to me.
For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, entrusted to me by the Cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a Conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is.
Dear Brothers, I thank you most sincerely for all the love and work with which you have supported me in my ministry and I ask pardon for all my defects. And now, let us entrust the Holy Church to the care of Our Supreme Pastor, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and implore his holy Mother Mary, so that she may assist the Cardinal Fathers with her maternal solicitude, in electing a new Supreme Pontiff. With regard to myself, I wish to also devotedly serve the Holy Church of God in the future through a life dedicated to prayer.
From the Vatican, 11 February 2013 BENEDICTUS PP XVI

I called her but her number wasn’t going so when I got to Lagos I contacted her husband who told me that she went to Ogun State on official assignment.
He agreed that I should come over and do my transaction from their house.It was raining when I got there so I got socked, especially while trying to get their keys from a neighbour.
They live in a one-bedroom apartment, so I had to go inside the room to change. I was really cold and was already wishing I had a man I could visit in Lagos when the unexpected happened.
Due to the rain my sister’s husband came in through a back door from the kitchen straight into the bedroom and I was completely nude; I couldn’t even bend down to pick my clothes.
Am now back to Enugu where I do my business, but unfortunately I am six weeks pregnant. No man friend, no boyfriend, no sex mate…. So who will I give this pregnancy to?
The options I have thought of is either to kill myself or have an abortion. Is there any other way out of this mess I have gotten myself into?

Annabella Zwyndila, who was recently nominated for ZAFAA Awards as Best Upcoming Actress, opens up to The Entertainer on her journey to movie stardom. Excerpts:
Tell us about youself
I came from the northern part of Nigeria, Adamawa State to be precise. My father is a military officer while my mother is a lecturer. I came from a home where education and discipline is a necessity. I am a twin (laughs). I graduated from University of Jos where I studied Physics.
Nollywood screen goddess and one of the most highly rated Nigerian star actress, Funke Akindele knows she might have to set the records straight sooner or later. “My huband has never been married,” she insists in response to much of the hearsay about her marriage to Almaroof.
“I am the woman he got married to. I was married properly. Alot of negative comments came from sadists who want to run their mouths. So because I am a Youth Ambassador or Celebrity, I can’t have my life?” she asks rhetorically.
It is my life. If I do things because people want me to, I will end up unhappy. I do what I do because I want to be happy. I would still continue to teach morals and campaign against HIV/AIDS and enlighten the youths. It doesn’t make me bad; that is even if it is, because I can tell you authoritatively that my husband is not married to anyone else.
Yes, he has beautiful children, who are not mine now and we have a cordial relationship, which dates back to even before we got married. ‘So what if he has kids? Is that a disease? That is where my heart is! I had many non-biological children even before I got married. I take them as my own children, pay their bills and help them. I have always loved children. So now that God has given me these ones, what should I do?
Will people be happier if I had married someone who didn’t have children, seem so perfect, put on my make-p and fake smile on the red carpet and start weeping when I get home?’ She queries a deadpan ton.
And about my in-laws, they are very wonderful and supportive and my parents and siblings as well.

Wonders they say shall never end, this is quite unbelievable and pathetic story, Man rapes eight children between the ages of 8 and 15. Nemeses have finally caught up with Mr. Temitope Alo who is now in police station for his evil deeds and atrocities.
He are the statements from the victims….
One of the victims, an eight years old girl (name withheld) told P.M.NEWS that the suspect told them to help him arrange newspapers in his apartment, adding that, “after that, he told us to go into the next room.
“He asked us to remove our panties and I asked him what he wanted to do to us. He laid me on the bed and defiled me four times. He covered our mouths with white handkerchief and threatened to kill us if we report,” she said.
Another victim, a 12 years old girl (name withheld) alleged that the suspect “licked my private part. He called me and my friend in. He asked me to bring N100 fufu for him, which I brought. While I was waiting for the money with my friend, he asked my friend whether she could keep a secret.
“He asked me to pull off my panties but I did not answer and he forced me and licked my private part while he slept with my friend and defiled her too. He gave us N50. I told my friend that I will tell my mummy, but he threatened to kill us if we told anybody.”
According to P.M News, the police in Ipaja-Ayobo area of Lagos State, southwest Nigeria have arrested this man who allegedly defiled the eight children. He is now being detained, awaiting arraignment in court.
The suspect, Mr. Temitope Alo was arrested on Saturday at Koloba area of Ayobo after the children allegedly confessed that he had raped them.
The eight victims, whose ages range from eight to 15 years were brought to the Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, WAPA yesterday by the Vice Chairman, Ipaja-Ayobo Local Council Development Area, LCDA, Alhaja Falilat Ajijola to enable the state government to take over the case.
The victim said he works for a newspaper company (name withheld) in Lagos and allegedly lured the children to his apartment where he defiled them and threatened to kill them if they reported the matter.
Tests conducted on the eight children at the Ayobo-Ipaja Primary Health Centre, PHC, showed that the children had been defiled.
A top official of the WAPA Ministry told P.M.NEWS that the ministry had been handling rape cases but they had never recorded a case where a man serially raped eight children.
The news of the rape caused a stir at the WAPA ministry as the staff rained curses on the alleged rapist.
According to the Ayobo-Ipaja LCDA Vice Chairman, Ajijola, last week a case of rape was reported to the Neighbourhood Watch office at the council but when enquiries were made, the traditional ruler of Koloba was said to have denied that such a thing happened in his area.
She said a few days later, the former council chairman of Ayobo-Ipaja, Bisi Yusuf reported that the incident actually happened and that further investigation traced the rape case to the culprit, who was promptly arrested.
Ajijola added that the traditional ruler, Chief Babayanju, later opened up and admitted that the story was true, while eight children came forward to report that they were allegedly raped by Alo.
The vice chairman said the children were taken to the PHC in the area where tests were conducted on them and it was confirmed that the children had been defiled.
Two children of a community leader in the area were among the victims.
Chairman, Ayobo-Ipaja LCDA, Alhaji Shakiru Adisa Yusuf said he was shocked when he heard the story, adding that such a person is worse than an animal.
“I was shocked because I am also a parent. Why must he go after innocent children? Such people should not live in this community,” he said, adding that the council would pursue the case to ensure that justice was done.
“We will collect the tests conducted on the children and hand them over to the state government. We will pursue the case to a logical conclusion. This man has brought disgrace to this community,” he said.
Acting Director, Child Development, WAPA Ministry, Mrs Mosunmola Dada said the issue was disgusting, adding that such a man must be a paedophile and vowed that the government would ensure that he was prosecuted.
“We have evidences against him. The Ayobo-Ipaja LCDA has a medical report on this case. We will monitor and follow up this case,” she said.
The suspect, in his statement at the Ayobo Police Station, was said to have admitted that he raped some children, but that he only raped four and not eight.
P.M.NEWS could not get to the man rapes the eight children as he was in custody of the police, while the Divisional Police Officer, DPO of the station was not around for comments.

This story of a 28 yrs old lady, who never had an orgasm, even when his fiancé thrust for 30 minutes, she can’t be satisfied. She now cries out “If We Get Married It May Not Last”. Read through the full gist and kindly leave your honest advice.
I am dating a very nice guy, 4 years older than me. I am 28 years old. We were friends and knew each other for a period of time before deciding to become lovers. I moved from Abuja to be with him in Lagos and he got me a well paying job in a top business firm on the Island.
He later proposed to me earlier this year and I accepted because I love him and he is a good man. Now my problem is this, the SEX!!
Since we started being intimate and having sex, I have NEVER had an orgasm with him during penetration! He has never been able to make me climax with his penis. He keeps thrusting for more than 30 minutes and I just want him to get it over already and let me sleep. I have talked to him about it, and he even asks me after he ejaculates, if I came. I always say “almost did.”
I am a VERY physical and sexual person, and I request sex twice a day (not mandatory). But I get horny A LOT! Sometimes he tells me he is not in the mood to go again. I know he cares about making me feel good and satisfy me, because anytime I tell him what direction/position I want, he listens and obeys. But I still can’t climax. I do love it though when he uses his fingers, I actually climax if it’s his fingers but not his penis! And no his penis is not small or big. It is moderate and okay for me, I don’t like huge tools that rip me open abeg.
He has some weight on him and a bit of what we call “pot belly.” And sometimes that gets in the way, especially when I want to do it sitting down. His belly covers the tool so we always end up lying down. How do I tell him all this without bruising his ego?
I have been thinking if this how sex will be for the rest of my life? I want to know if I’m the only lady that can’t have an orgasm?? Am I sick and lone in this?

How can one describe the action of a Redeemed Pastor who set himself ablaze, when it was discovered he impregnated one of the choir member?
According to report, a pastor with the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, in the Enerhen area of Delta State, recently set himself ablaze to escape the shame of his illicit affair.
It was gathered that the decision of the Pastor, simply identified as Pastor Celestine, to take his life was because he allegedly impregnated a choir in his parish whose name is given as Rose.
It was learnt that he pleaded with Rose to abort the pregnancy which she refused blatantly as she did not want to lose her life during the abortion. He gave her a cheque for N2,000,000, which she refused, even after explaining to her that her refusal to abort the pregnancy may lead to the fall of the parish.
After all efforts to get Rose to abort the pregnancy failed, he reportedly drove himself to Udu bridge under which he lit himself and was burnt to death. He was married and had a 2 month old baby from his wife of two years.

Marriage surely is not a bed of roses; in recent times there have been report of marriage partners heading to the law court to settle their differences. This was the situation with Adam Ariyo and Ajoke, with the former accusing the wife of been a witch after four years of marriage. Here is the full story as reported by Search Nigeria.
A 39-year-old teacher, Adams Ariyo, who was dragged before an Agege Customary Court for divorce over lack of care, has accused his wife, Ajoke, of being a witch, as according to him, the woman was responsible for his dwindling fortunes.
Adams however informed the court that since Ajoke moved into their matrimonial home in 2002 before they separated in 2006, his business was not booming. Besides, a soothsayer once told him that Ajoke belonged to a demonic group of women who hinder the progress of their husbands.
”I did not believe what the soothsayer said until l had a dream that revealed her demonic power to me”.
The respondent claimed that the wife moved out of their matrimonial home when he did not allow her to hawk palm wine in the neighbourhood and then resorted to blackmail.
Adams alleged that his son was over pampered by Ajoke who always bought things for him hence he took to stealing.
The husband urged the court to dissolve the marriage and grant him custody of the only child for proper care.
The food vendor also told the court that she was not happy because her child was so dirty and was living in the area where hemp smokers dominated, adding that she didn’t want the nine-year-old boy to be influenced negatively.
”What really baffled me was that my nine-year-old boy is in primary two despite the fact that his father is a teacher at a nursery and primary school in Ikeja”.
The applicant urged the court to grant her custody of the child because Adams was already married to another woman who bore a child for him.
The court adjourned the case till September 10, 2012 for further hearing.
Kudos to the Nigeria Army as they strive to put an end to the Boko Haram menace. A report reaching us from reliable sources says that about 7 members of the group were shot dead in shootout with the Nigerian Army. Below is how the PMNews reported the incident.
Suspected members of Boko Haram ,the Islamist extremist group and Nigerian soldiers exchanged gun fire in a battle in Maiduguri on Friday, leaving seven of the attackers dead, a military spokesman said.
“A group of gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram terrorists opened fire on a military checkpoint where soldiers were conducting a cordon-and-search operation,” Lieutenant Colonel Sagir Musa said of the incident.
“The soldiers responded with gunfire, leading to a shootout. Seven gunmen were killed in the fire exchange and 13 others were arrested while the rest fled. No casualty was recorded on the part of the soldiers.”
