“God has finally silenced our enemies. Those who thought my daughter would not marry Odi have failed, thanks to the almighty God that I serve. They tried but could not prevail over what God has destined. We are going to welcome them in a big way. As you can see, we have started preparation to receive them. Things are been bought. The Aso Ebi will be bought soon and when they come, they will choose the pattern they prefer. Purity is my 14th grandchild. She will be taken to Uromi before coming to Lagos then I will be ready to take care of my baby. I was to go to USA with them, but I could not since my husband was not well then. But now, all is well.” she said in an interview with Nollywood Insider.

Among the bridal train was daughter of Jide Kosoko, Shola Kosoko- Abinna. The event was graced by top Nigerian celebrities such as Abba Folawiyo, Kasumu, Pasuma amongst others.

Photos: Now that's what you call a conversion! Former church transformed into £50m home with gym and pool is a temple to modern design
A church round the corner from Harrods has been converted into one of London's most expensive homes and is on the market for £50million.

Don’t call Chris Brown a playa (at least not to his face). The troubled R&B star is juggling 2 women in his life — his main squeeze Karrueche Tran and Rihanna, whom he needs to keep his career afloat. It isn’t very difficult to tell which woman he’s really in love with (it ain’t Rihanna).
In an interview with Power 105′s The Breakfast Club, Brown, 24, said:

Pressure sensors on the garment, sewn in around the bust area, detect unwanted force and trigger the powerful shock. It can deliver up to 82 electric shocks, more than enough to disable any attacker.

Mortsafes were contraptions designed to protect graves from disturbance. The necessity for medical students to learn anatomy by attending dissections of human subjects was frustrated by the limited allowance of dead bodies - the corpses of executed criminals - granted by the government. As such, there had been body-snatching close to the schools of anatomy in Scotland since the early 18th century.
Many people were determined to protect the graves of newly deceased friends and relatives. The rich could afford heavy table tombstones, vaults, mausolea and iron cages around graves. The poor began to place flowers and pebbles on graves to detect disturbances and dig heather and branches into the soil to make disinterment more difficult. Large stones, often coffin-shaped, sometimes the gift of a wealthy man to the parish, were placed over new graves. Friends and relatives took turns or hired men to watch graves through the hours of darkness. Watching societies were often formed in towns, one in Glasgow having 2,000 members. But graves were still violated.

While climbing down the side of a steep section of the mountain, her husband noticed she was missing.

He fell to his death in the attempt to climb down and reach his dying wife. Two other climbers did successfully reach her but knew carrying her off of Mount Everest was not an option.

After details of the disastrous climb became known, it was realized that Francys Arseniev had become the first woman from the United States to reach the summit of Mount Everest without the aid of bottled oxygen.

THE Presidency on Monday announced that wife of President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience, had travelled to Germany, where it said she visited often for medical check-ups.
“It is notable that Her Excellency has a history of visiting the hospital in Germany even before she became the First Lady, thus making her medical trips routine,” a statement by the Special Assistant (Media) to the President’s wife, Ayo Osinlu, said.
Osinlu’s statement was in reaction to media reports that the President’s wife had again returned for medical treatment abroad.
Patience was in 2012 overseas for six weeks attending to her health. Though Osinlu and the Presidency denied then that she was undergoing treatment, Patience at a thanksgiving service to celebrate her survival revealed that she underwent nine surgeries and passed out for a whole week.
The Presidency statement on Monday read, “Our attention has been attracted by some curiosity in a cross section of the public and particularly the media, about the movement of the First Lady, Dame Patience Goodluck Jonathan.
