84-Year-Old Man Obsessed With Computer Games Suddenly Suffers Stroke. Photo

An 84-year-old elderly was recently sent to the hospital and diagnosed with cerebral infarction after he suddenly suffered from a stroke in southwest China’s Chongqing. The cause was his prolonged playing computer games. According to the doctor, his obsession in playing computer games and long-term lack of sleep brought about the elderly’s cerebral infarction.
The elderly, Chen, has been obsessed with computer games for more than 10 years. He believes it’s the best way to kill time and to prevent Alzheimer’s. Equipped with one laptop and two smart phones, Chen always plays games late into midnight.

Chen's three sons were shocked by the diagnose and blamed themselves for not having enough time to accompany their father. They promised they would spend more time with their father and help him to overcome addiction to computer games.

"I Was Tricked By A Fake Prophet Into Marrying My Wife" -- Man Claims...

Dissatisfied with his marriage, a man has pleaded with an Agege Customary Court, in Lagos State, to dissolve his marriage to his wife, Ilesanmi Comfort, because he doesn’t love her. The man, Ilesanmi Samuel, said he wouldn’t have married Comfort, if not that he was tricked by a fake prophet.

“I was forced to marry Comfort by a fake prophet at a church where I once served as an assistant pastor. “Comfort and I met for just two weeks before our wedding. It was when we started living as husband and wife that Comfort showed her true colour,” Samuel said, adding that Comfort used to seize any opportunity to curse him and his ministry.

He said whenever he tried to tell her that her behaviour was wrong, she would grab his shirt and start shouting. “Before her sudden change and cruel attitude, I prayed and God revealed to me that Comfort wasn’t my wife. I chose wrongly. I can’t find peace in my house.

“I don’t love her anymore. I don’t want this to tarnish my ministry and my reputation as a pastor. That’s why I decided to file a divorce.

I think the divorce would bring peace to my ministry,” he said.

Comfort denied the allegations, stressing that the root of their marital problem was that Samuel wanted to use her to raise his children.

She said: “After Samuel lost his wife and married me, I started taking care of his children.

“Samuel and I didn’t have any form of quarrel. I was shocked this morning when I saw divorce summon from Agege Customary Court.” President of the court, Mr. Williams Philips, adjourned the case for further hearing.

Federal Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials said agents got suspicious when they found the box of Tastee Brand Jamaican Beef Patties in Chantal Alecia Bedward’s luggage when she arrived at JFK Airport from Kingston Tuesday, officials said.
When they took her into a private search room and opened the box, 12 duct taped packages of cocaine spilled out.

Agents arrested Bedward for drug smuggling and turned the case over to the Department of Homeland Security investigations unit.

“This seizure demonstrates the vigilance and dedication demonstrated daily by CBP officers at JFK, in keeping these prohibited and dangerous narcotics off the streets of our communities,” said Robert E. Perez, Director of Field Operations in New York for CBP.

Officials estimated the street value of the drugs at $70,000.

Bedward will be prosecuted in Brooklyn Federal Court.

Son Of Nigerian Government Official Jailed For Life For Killing Sex Worker In UK. Photos

Bala Chinda, a 26-year-old student of Robert Gordon University in the UK, has been handed a life sentence over the death of Jessica Nkechi McGraa, a Nigerian sex worker in Aberdeen. A son of an official at the Nigerian embassy in Beijing, capital of China, Chinda arrived Aberdeen a few weeks before the tragic incident.
He denied the allegation of killing the escort, whose corpse was found in her apartment in February 2016.

It was also alleged that he stole her mobile phones to erase any evidence linking him to her.

A high court in Aberdeen gave Chinda a life imprisonment sentence with a minimum term of 18 years.

According to BBC, a CCTV footage revealed that the deceased followed Chinda to his apartment before they returned to her residence where she was killed.

McGraa, who died of asphyxiation, was probably smothered with a pillow and strangled with her scarf.

During the trial, it emerged that McGraa had a seven-year-old son living with her adopted mother in London.

“At the heart of this horrific crime was a young mother, daughter and friend whose life was cut tragically short in what must have been terrifying circumstances,” Stuart Houston, a detective said.

“Throughout, Chinda has shown no real remorse for his depraved action and taken no responsibility for robbing a young boy of his mother.”

"He's Not A Man, His Manho0d Is Lifeless"; Woman Embarrasses Husband In Court....

“He’s not a man. His manhood is lifeless. He knows that my charge against him is true and that’s why he has refused to appear in court,” Zainab Sanni, told the Oja Oba/Mapo Grade C Customary Court, Mapo, Ibadan, Oyo State.

Zainab had brought a suit before the court stating that her husband was impotent and had failed to satisfy her sexually. She, therefore urged the court to dissolve their marriage.

“My husband is not a man. Although, he has a good look which makes women fall for him, but below, he is lifeless. “We got married four years ago and I was looking forward to a blissful marriage which I believe sex has an important role to play in, but I ended up being disappointed and devastated.

“Early in our marriage, after the day’s work, I would expect my husband to initiate sex while I was always prepared to satisfy him. “But to my chagrin, he would get into bed and sleep off or pretend to be asleep.

“Initially, I was reserved and couldn’t demand for it, but after starving me for long, I summoned courage and discussed it with him. “His initial excuse was that his job was too demanding and always left him fagged out.

“The first time we had sex, my husband was shaking and sweating as if he saw a ghost. I realised that he was already through with it before we started anything at all. The experience was awful and I was left unsatisfied and this had been the pattern the few times we had sex in our four years of marriage.

“I knew there was a problem, but he was not ready to discuss it. I need not be told that my husband is impotent. Our childless union was an enough proof. “I eventually left his house and got married to another man, who aside taking good care of me, is superb in bed.

“I had a baby for my new husband a year after I left my first husband. “I’m happy and I’m enjoying my new marriage. I no more love my first husband which is the reason for asking for a divorce,” the plaintiff stated.

President of the court, Chief Ademola Odunade after listening to all the plaintiff had to say and taking cognisance of the fact that the defendant had failed to show up in court after being served a court notice more than once, gave his judgement.

Odunade ruled that the union between Zainab and Abubarka be dissolved and a repayment of dowry be made by the plaintiff to the defendant. He also instructed that a copy of the court judgment be served the defendant.

See What Doctors Removed From The Stomach Of A Girl Who Loves Eating Hair. Graphic

Doctors in India claim to have removed one of the world's biggest hairballs from the stomach of a girl addicted to eating her own hair . The giant one-metre-long hairball, which weighed 2.5lbs, was surgically removed from an 18-year-old. Doctors in Kashmir removed the growth from the teenager's stomach after she arrived at hospital complaining of discomfort and a severe abdominal pain.
The doctors said the hairball was entangled to the intestines - which had left her unable to eat or even drink water.

Dr Iqbal Saleem, who led the team of surgeons which carried out the procedure, said: "The hairball must have been there for at least two years.

"We removed the entire bunch of hair through laparoscopic surgery.

"We used laparoscopy so that the girl was not left with any scars around her abdomen. It was the biggest hairball removed without a general surgery."

The family of the girl revealed that she was addicted to eating hair but no one found out until she complained of a severe stomach ache.
The hair chewing condition known as Rapunzel syndrome, is a rare condition in which a hairball (called a trichobezoar) is found in the stomach, with its tail in the colon.

Despite successful surgery, doctors are worried the girl might start eating hair again.

Yahya Jammeh Finally Leaves Gambia Today Into Exile After Being Disgraced...

Gambia’s former president, Yahya Jammeh will now leave Banjul on Saturday with President Alpha Conde of Guinea, to begin a new life in exile. This followed Friday’s final peace move by Conde and Mauritania’s President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz.
The two West African leaders travelled to Banjul to persuade the long ruling Jammeh to leave peacefully before West African forces pounced on him.

In a statement issued on state TV Friday night, Jammeh announced that he was stepping down, a superfluous announcement as he was already no more the leader, having been denied recognition by the world. All indications are that Jammeh will be going into exile in Guinea.

A senior adviser to new President Adama Barrow said talks to finalise the exile deal were holding up his exit.

“I can assure you that he has agreed to leave,” Mai Ahmad Fatty, Barrow’s special advisor, told Reuters in Senegal’s capital Dakar. He could not say where Jammeh would go into exile.

President of The Gambia, Adama Barrow had earlier confirmed Yahya Jammeh’s stepping down.

Barrow, on his twitter handle on Friday, @adama_barrow said: “I would like to inform you that Yahya Jammeh has agreed to step down. “He is scheduled to depart Gambia today. #NewGambia.”

Barrow on Thursday took the oath of office as Gambia’s new president.

He was sworn-in about 5p.m. Senegalese time at the Gambian High Commission in Dakar, Senegal.

Barrow succeeded Yahya Jammeh, who lost in the Dec. 1 presidential election and refused to vacate office when his term expired midnight on Thursday.

Devil Worshipper With 'Satanic' Tattoo On His Forehead Sentenced To Jail. Photos

A devil worshipper raped a teenager after luring her into a room converted into a “satanic chamber”. Pedro Evangelou, 42, brought the 19-year-old from a nightclub to his home, where he preyed on her in the room that was filled with satanic posters and books on black magic.
The rapist, who has a pentangle tattooed on his forehead, caught the girl after she fled naked from his flat in June last year and told her: “I haven’t f*****g finished with you yet, we’re going to do all the positions”. He dragged the teen back upstairs, telling her: “I’ve got a gag and handcuffs”.

She eventually managed to alert a neighbour at the Islington flat, who raised the alarm.

Evangelou, who has occult tattoos all over his body and wears a pendant made of single human tooth, was sentenced to nine years inprisonment at Snaresbrook Crown Court yesterday. He was found guilty of sexual assault and rape after a trial in November last year.

The twisted rapist showed no emotion as a victim impact statement was read to the court.
