Women Win $200,000 Lawsuit For Dog Sperm


Women Winn $200,000 Lawsuit For Dog SpermLooks like this animal hospital really screwed the pooch.Two Pennsylvania women were awarded more than $200,000 in total on Thursday in a lawsuit over the destroyed sperm samples of two champion poodles, the Centre Daily Times reports. Linda Blackie, breeder at Whisperwind Kennels in Altoona, and dog owner of Miriam Thomas, Huntington, had entrusted 122 frozen samples of semen from the prized pooches to the Mt. Nittany Animal Hospital. The hospital mistakenly thawed — and thus destroyed — the samples in May 2010, according to the Associated Press.

The two women initially sought over $300,000, claiming that they could have made $5,000 off of every two samples.
Robert Mix, attorney for the animal hospital, denied the women’s claim that the samples were that valuable, noting that the quality of the samples ranged from “moderately good to extremely poor.”
Jury members found themselves deliberating over just how much the dog semen samples were worth.
“I think everyone was disappointed it had to come to this,” said attorney Louis Glantz, who represented the women.

Thugs attack Teachers, Vice Principal for flogging the Grand-Daughter of the Oba of benin


The student said to be a granddaughter of the Benin Monarch, Oba Erediauwa, was alleged to have been injured on the hand while being flogged by the teacher.

It was gathered that the suspected hoodlums invaded the school premises on Monday and started beating up some teachers over alleged flogging of the student.

It was said that the thugs who were allegedly led by Tony forced the way into the school compound and demanded that the teacher who flogged the Oba’s grand daughter be produced and when this was not done, they attacked the teachers including one of the vice-principals.

State Chairman of TUC, Comrade Joe Aligbe who confirmed the invasion by the thugs, said they were armed and threatened to return if the teacher was not produced.

“Our members are now afraid. We are here to appeal to them for calm. The principal is not aware. I know the Benin monarch will not approve of this action,” he said.

The Vice Principal, Special Duties, Mr. Ihiridan Harga, said the school’s management team are new and were not aware of the flogging of a Benin Princess, adding “the alleged offence was committed before we resumed here. We were not aware of the flogging. The intruders were many and they were led by two chiefs.


REVEALED: Inside Lagos strip clubs

This kind of club, no doubt is gradually making its way into many towns and cities in Nigeria and with increasing patronage by different sets of people.

Efforts by various governments, especially the Lagos State government to rid towns and cities of these strip clubs have met a brick wall as the operators of such businesses are back with little or no moderation to the usual practice.

The government, while attempting to bring a little sanity to the city’s night life once raided the strip clubs in the Ikeja axis of Lagos State and arrested the strippers. But the operators reacted by charging the government to court.

This incident generated a lot of issues and divided the public who held different opinions on the business.

Investigations carried out recently revealed that the operators of strip clubs are back in business and are carrying out activities there in a manner which obviously gives them an edge over ordinary night clubs in terms of patronage. 

Scattered all over Lagos mainland are strip/nude clubs like Cazz bar, Club Unique, Wall Street bar, Cave Exclusive and Ocean Blue.

A visit to the Cazz bar on Opebi road, Ikeja on a Friday night was an experience always fresh in the mind of these reporters.

After paying an entrance fee of N3,000.00 one is entitled to enjoy the ambience where most of the strippers are beautiful white girls ‘imported’ into the country to entertain and meet the audience’s different needs.

The girls who have their bodies scantily covered with g-string pants and bras took a pole-dancing position and when charged, they discarded of the scanty clothings on them and danced naked performing also the lap-dance for any patron who was willing to give them a tip.

Further investigations revealed that there is a VIP section where you pay an entrance fee of N10,000.00 which entitles you to have anything on demand free.

The Cazz bar regulation states that a patron who is willing to go home with one of its strippers will wait till 5:000 a.m (which is the closing time) and pay the management while leaving his phone number and address for security reasons.

At the Cazz Bar it is stated that each of the strippers collects N75,000.00 per week excluding accommodation and feeding.

The practice at the Cave Exclusive in GRA, Ikeja is a little different compared to that of Cazz Bar.
At the Cave Exclusive, the entrance fee is N5,000.00. What makes the operations of Cave Exclusive different from others is that not only that the strippers are scantily clad, the bar attendants who are mostly ladies move around and attend to patrons in their underwears.

altThe environment speaks s..ex and you won’t fail to catch a glimpse of couples engaged in one sexual act or the other and with no damn given to prying eyes.

One of the attendants who spoke to the reporters claimed she wasn’t initially aware that the rule is that attendants also will work in their underwears. she said she discovered this on her first day at work and that she was planning to quit anytime from now as she wasn’t comfortable with the practice.

On further questioning, she claimed her take-home pay in a month is N25,000.00 and she feels she shouldn’t be subjected to such a treatment for that amount as customers are free to touch and make passes at her, while the management expects her to smile back at them.

The Cave Exclusive which has been running for over three years records a huge patronage on Fridays as fun-seekers throng the hangout to enjoy what they offer.

The operation in other strip bars is not different and it attracts patrons who are willing to part with any amount of money as long as they are satisfied.

Strip and nude bar operation is said to have started in Lagos in the 90’s. Then, some hangouts in Apapa used to bring in ladies who were used in meeting the sexual needs of European sailors who often visited the hangout while on trips to Lagos.

The operation gradually gained ground and has now become fully rooted with quite a large number of nightclubs in existence.

A trip round the city of Lagos revealed that virtually every nook and cranny of this city has this strip and nude club due to the commercial gains derived from them.

Teenagers and young ladies see the club as an avenue to make money not considering the consequences of their action.

It was also gathered that top businessmen and politicians catch fun, but they choose to do that in hangouts that operate strictly by membership.

A strip bar owner in Lagos is said to rake in between N5m and N10m every month depending on the location and patronage.

A usual strip club is open everyday for business, but has Wednesdays and Fridays as its special days.
Many had thought that the Lagos state government would win the battle to curb, if not stop this business, while some opine that it’s a business that has come to stay whether the government likes it or not.

Truck pusher stabs prostitute to death, attempts suicide because he was broke


A 22-year-old truck pusher, identified as Samuel Akuro, is now in the hospital under the watchful eyes of the police for allegedly stabbing a female prostitute to death in the oil-rich city of Warri, Delta State.

The suspect, it was gathered, also stabbed himself out of fear of the mob, when it dawned on him that his victim had died.

Sources gathered that the incident started when the truck pusher visited a brothel along Okere road and approached two ladies, who separately turned him down.

Sources disclosed that the prostitutes refused Samuel because he did not have money, though he was well known as a regular customer.

Unperturbed, Samuel, it was learnt, relocated to another brothel at No 26, two buildings away from the first one where his advances were again rejected until he saw the deceased, who had been his regular customer and had also rejected his move.

“It was at this stage that Samuel became angry and drew a bottle, broke it and stabbed the girl (whose identity was yet to be ascertained at the time of filing this report). When he realized that the girl was dying and there was a surging crowd advancing towards the hotel, Samuel, afraid of being mobbed, stabbed himself with the aim of committing suicide,” a security source disclosed.

Tribune Newspaper learnt that the stabbed prostitute was later rushed to the Warri Central Hospital where she gave up the ghost while doctors and nurses were battling to save her.
The suspect was apprehended by security men from “A” Division Police, Warri, and was taken to the Warri Central Hospital for treatment.

Reporters observed, during a visit to the Hospital on Friday, that the suspect was hand-cuffed to a stretcher as a result of his ‘violent nature’.

It was gathered that Samuel Akuro, the truck pusher, who lives alone in Warri after the relocation of his parents to the village, had attempted killing himself in the past, but was rescued from the river he jumped into.

Looking restless, Samuel Akuro, who hails from Ewu in Ughelli South Local Government Area, said he did not know what came over him on the day he stabbed the prostitute to death.

“I wanted to kill myself that day, but at the river, I was rescued. I later went to the hotel at Okere road because the girls have been ‘eating’ my money. I found myself in this hospital where I was told that I stabbed a girl to death at the hotel.

“I don’t know how it happened and if a man of God should come here now, he will know that something is wrong with me,” he said at the Warri Central hospital before he was transferred to the Delta State Teaching Hospital, Oghara.

How Super Eagles star turned me into sex slave – Tina Okpara


Tina Okpara, the teenage girl who was serially raped by Super Eagles star, Godwin Okpara, has released a book, detailing how the sexual assault went on for two years.
In the book titled, “My Life Has A Price”, the victim narrates how she was adopted at age 13 by the Okparas and taken to France.
Linda, Okpara’s wife, then enslaved her for five years and turned a blind eye to the sexual abuse, she says in the book.
Tina’s decision to write the book seven years after she regained freedom, aims at raising awareness and helping other girls who might be going through the same horrendous experience, she said in an interview with TheNews magazine.
“One day, I told myself that if I refused testifying, other girls will continue to experience modern slavery,” she said.
She explained how her biological father was tricked by the Okparas into believing that she would be sent to school in France where the Super Eagles star was playing for Paris Saint Germain.
However, once in France, she was used as a sex slave. She was also prevented by Linda from attending school.
“The day she spat it on my face that schooling was not for me because I was too stupid, I lost all hope,” she said.
As the abuse worsened, Tina kept secret notebooks where she could “dump all my sorrow”.
“These notebooks were used to dump all my sorrow, all my hatred for Linda. It was my lifeline and my friend,” she said.
The 188-page book, originally written in French, has just been translated into English.
Godwin is currently serving a 10-year jail term in France, while his wife, Linda, will be in jail for 15 years.
