Kanu Faces Sack At Pompey Due To Inactivity

There are strong indications that former Nigeria skipper Nwankwo Kanu may soon part ways with Portsmouth.

Kanu, who has been injured and was unavailable for Portsmouth’s English Championship game aginst Millwall on Tuesday, could be asked to leave the club due to inactivity.

The former Arsenal and Ajax playmaker, has not even made an appearance for Pompey since Appleton became manager at Portsmouth in November, 2011.
Coach Appleton recently said he has no plans to use the ‘King’s’ experience after suggesting Kanu is not fit enough to start their games. Just like Kanu, another African player, Benjani has also been relegated to the bench.

“I certainly wouldn’t be expecting too much from Kanu in the run-in. Kanu is not fit enough to play, end of story,” Appleton said.

“It is difficult for me to consider the players who have not been involved in our games. Benjani comes off the bench to ask questions on why he might not get a start.

“But, I have told all of them. I can’t afford to start playing players who I don’t think will get through 45 minutes of football,” said Appleton.
It would be recalled that Kanu’s club have been in financial crisis for the past two seasons. The club of the

English fans were close to going into administration last month, as they could not even pay players wages since late last year. Pompey was in huge debt of about £50 million.
Apart from Kanu, many of the players are due to be offloaded into the transfer market, while some face compulsory retirement.

Women who face Domestic Abuse

I got this story while going through a close friend blog. The woman at the right, had her finger cut by her husband who is a police man and he wasn't arrested for the crime. It is very obvious that these women has been badly beaten. Unfortunately, no information has been given about these women or their names.

There are so many of such cases every year but only very few or if any, are treated. To young ladies, before you get  married, if your boyfriend raises his hand on you and hit you, you have to do a rethink about going further with such relationship because chances are that, if he did it once, he will do it again. Do not let the love you have for a man blind you from seeing reality. As for married women, Abeg if you are having domestic abuse run! be alive for your children. Don't wait till you look like one of these women. These are even the lucky ones, some are not even alive to tell their story. Its not by force to stay married to a beast! And don't for once think you deserve the beating because you don't.

And young ladies, if you have the chance at a young age to get education please do! the reason so many of this things happen is because many of our young ladies believe a man will just come and marry them and they will live happily ever after. Don't just get married to become a house wife! get a job, get something to do! Many women are unable to leave because they don't have the finances to support their self and their children if they leave their husbands house.

To the government, police, house of representative, its high time YOU look into this issue of women abuse. Its bigger than you think. Its time to stop treating this crimes as domestic violence and start treating it like an attempted murder cases. There should be bills passed on this kind of assault. So many of this women reported to the police and many were sent back home to go and beg their husbands because it is a domestic case and they could do nothing about it. This should stop! in fact it has to be looked into.

To the families of these victims, Don't leave your sister or niece in such condition. Don't go telling her that divorce is not in the family etc. It is very important to call a family meeting in cases like this. Do not allow what the world will say to hold you back from saving you sister's life. Don't just sit in your house and watch! Do something!

To the pastors, please stop telling these women to go back home to their husbands' house and pray, that God will guild them. Many women who listen to this are dead! There should be a temporary place for these women till the church helps to resolve this issue. Don't just tell them to go back and pray! Do something!

Above all, Never love someone more than you love yourself. If you don't have any help from anyone please leave, make calls to Project Alert now 01-4737270, 08052004698 or send an email to, log on to their website

Dont Just sit there and hope for it to get better, make a call, talk to friends that can help, remove shame from your heart and live for yourself and your children.

Please don't just ignore this article, share, break the silence, you may be saving someone's life without knowing it.

29 years old man rapes young female in-law to death

Wonders shall never barely two weeks after a young lady identified as Faith Akin was allegedly raped to death by a middle aged man, a similar incident has been reported at the Epe Police Station.

According to the report, 29-year-old Titus Ime (pictured above) raped his in-law, a 19-year-old woman identified as Blessing John, to death. The incident occurred in a forest at Epe. The suspect allegedly trailed Blessing to her father’s farm, where he raped her to death.

Ime, reporting the incident, said he assaulted Blessing due to her refusal to date him. The rapist cum murderer blamed his dastardly act on his “great love" for the deceased.
“I just moved to Lagos from Akwa -Ibom State to look for a job when I met Blessing. She is my in-law, as my uncle is married to her elder sister," he said.
"As soon as I set my eyes on her, I fell in love with her but I kept it to myself. When I could not bear it anymore, I went to her to declare my love for her but she turned me down. I kept pestering her but she refused blatantly that she did not love me; this made me angry.”
Ime added that despite Blessing’s refusal to date him, he had to device a means to force her to have sex with him.
“I did not intend to kill Blessing but my feeling for her was very strong. So after monitoring her movement for some time, I discovered that she goes to the farm to uproot cassava in the evening with her father. That day, I trailed her from her house to the forest. She was alone and she did not know I was following her, when she got into the dense forest and there was no one in sight, I ran ahead of her and grabbed her, and started declaring my love for her but she turned me down.

"I was very angry and I grabbed her dress. She started struggling with me but I took a big stick and hit her on her head, she slumped immediately and I bend down over her and removed her skirt and had sex with her. All this while, she did not respond but I still had sex with her a second time but I do not know that she was dead; I thought she was just unconscious.”

After committing the act, the suspect hid in the forest for four days. He however came out of his hiding when he could not bear the hunger anymore, and reported himself to his family who then handed him over to the police for prosecution.

Blessing’s corpse were discovered by her father and has been deposited at a public mortuary for autopsy, while the case has been transferred to the Homicide department at Panti, Yaba for further investigation.

Nollywood actor Enebeli Elebuwa's health worsens

The veteran actor has been battling stroke for a while now. He was first admitted at the military hospital in Yaba for a few months before he was moved back home to recuperate. Since being back home, his health has worsened. I hear he's now receiving herbal treatment from a traditional doctor and might soon be moved back to his hometown in Delta State to meet real traditional doctors/medicine men to help him with his ailment.
