Indian footballer DIES from spinal injuries after somersault goal celebration



A footballer has died after a celebration went tragically wrong in India's Mizoram Premier League. Peter Biaksangzuala died in hospital on Sunday after falling on his head while attempting a somersault after scoring for Bethlehem Vengthlang FC. The 23-year-old midfielder scored a 62nd-minute equaliser against Chanmari West FC in Tuesday's league encounter and celebrated acrobatically.

Reeva Steenkamp's sister pleads with judge to jail Oscar Pistorius for 20 years and asks: 'Why should disabled people get softer sentences?'



Reeva Steenkamp's sister has watched with growing disbelief as Oscar Pistorius's lawyers insist he deserves special treatment.
Day after day, as the Olympian's defence team demanded house arrest instead of jail for the shooting of his model girlfriend, community service instead of hard labour, Simone Cowburn waited for sense to prevail.

Now, however, she is deeply worried. Following almost a week of legal argument, the 49-year-old fears the judge has been swayed by Pistorius's highly paid legal team.
Because she did not have had the chance to appear in court, Simone is now making a deeply personal plea to Judge Thokozile Masipa: hand down a heavy prison sentence to show violence against women will not be tolerated and to show that disability should not result in a softer punishment.

Worried: The daughters of Mrs Bibi pose with an image of their mother who faces death by hanging
A Pakistani Christian woman has been sentenced to hang after she was accused of making 'blasphemous' comments about the prophet Mohammed during an argument. 
While working as a berry picker in 2009, 46-year-old Asia Bibi got into a dispute with a group of Muslim women who objected to her drinking their water because as a Christian she was considered 'unclean'.
Hours after the incident one of the women reported mother-of-five Ms Bibi to a local cleric, claiming she had made disparaging remarks about the prophet Mohammed during the row.
As a result of the allegations, a furious mob arrived at Ms Bibi's home and savagely beat her and members of her family. Mrs Bibi - a farm worker from rural Punjab - released a memoir called 'Blasphemy' last year, in which she described her torment at not knowing how long she has left to live.

Bishop Oyedepo ALLEDGEDLY Banned From Entering The UK Over Church Corruption

According to Sahara Reporters , The UK Home Office has banned flamboyant Nigerian pastor, Bishop David Oyedepo, from entering Britain, a British government source told SaharaReporters.

Save me, Nyanya blast victim begs Government + Nigerians.

Monica Solomon


A victim of the May 1, 2014 bomb blast in Nyanya, the Federal Capital Territory which left scores dead, has made a desperate call to Nigerians to save her life.
The victim, Mrs. Monica Solomon, who is at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada, needs at least N5.3m for plastic surgeries overseas

PUNCH Metro learnt that although skin grafting was carried out on Monica’s hands last week, she is still far from full recovery as Nigerian hospitals lacked equipment to carry out a successful plastic surgery on her face.
Monica’s husband, Adebosin, said, “The skin grafting surgery carried out on her hands were successful and we thank the Almighty God for that; but the doctors in Gwagwalada said they can’t perform the plastic surgery which they estimated will cost about N5.3 million, except my wife is flown out of the country.”
He therefore pleaded with Nigerians, and the governments of Kogi and Kaduna states to come to their aid.
But Monica’s case has been compounded by the fact that the President’s wife, Dame Patience Jonathan, has excluded her from the N1.4m offer that was given to one of the victims, Chiamaka Dominic.

Alam’s son: Keyamo accuses FG of double standard


Alam’s son: Keyamo accuses FG of double standardLagos-based lawyer, Mr. Festus Keyamo, has accused the Federal Government of giving preference to the death of a son of a former Bayelsa State Governor, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.
The former governor’s son, Oyamuyefa, was reportedly killed in Dubai on Saturday.
Keyamo, who described the death “under questionable circumstances” as “particularly painful”, however said that similar incidents involving other Nigerian citizens had not enjoyed government’s swift response.
He said in the case of a Nigerian, Toba Falode, who was also said to have died under “hazy circumstances” in February 2014 was totally ignored by government, leaving the deceased’s family “to grieve alone”.
