News posted on website has revealed that Nollywood actress, Bisi Ibidapo Obe is now a proud mother of a bouncing baby girl. The bundle of joy, they said, arrived early this morning.
        some months ago news of the Nollywood actress’ pregnancy hit the media waves and that the man allegedly responsible – a former member of the National Assembly – has refused to accept the pregnancy.    
The person in question, Honorable Dino Melaye, happened to be one of the most vibrant lawmakers in the House of Representatives during his time at the National Assembly. Melaye also has a history of human rights activism and social work.
Therefore, the allegations of his impregnating an actress and then denying any such thing pose a significant threat to his reputation, especially if found to be true eventually. Dino Melaye is a married man, and his wife has taken his side in the controversy that surrounded the pregnancy story.
So, fingers crossed, now that the bundle of joy has arrived, Nigerians would, naturally expect to hear more on this emerging Nollywood episode!LOL!!! stay tuned

30-year-old Benneth Ibok, a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), currently undertaking his one year compulsory service at Afikpo Local Government Council in Ebonyi State, has been sentenced to eight months imprisonment by a Lagos High Court in Ikeja for attempted internet fraud on Tuesday. The presiding judge, Justice Olabisi Akinlade convicted Benneth after he pleaded guilty to the offence on arraignment

it was gathered that on the advice of his counsel, Mrs I. Njoku, Benneth entered into a plead bargain agreement with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Justice Akinlade said Benneth had no reason to be involved in internet fraud, emphasising that he should have thought of the consequences before his attempt.
She said, “At the age of 30, some of your age mates are married and already managers with serious responsibilities in some big companies, while you are still serving.”
“Now you have been convicted, which will be reflected in your record. You should have thought of the consequences before engaging in fraudulent activities.”
“You better go and change because if you go back to fraud, the EFCC will catch you again and the law will catch up with you.”
She noted that his sentence would commence from Aug.28 when he was arrested.
While explaining how Benneth was arrested and charged, EFCC counsel, Mrs Atinuke Daramola revealed that one Mr Sam Ohuabunwa petitioned the commission claiming that someone had hacked into his e-mail account.
She said, “The petitioner said the person started requesting for his mail contacts to send money into a certain Zenith Bank account no: 2080306452,
on his behalf”.
She said this information assisted the agency in their investigation at the bank, revealing that the bank account belongs to Benneth Ibok.
She said, “This led to his arrest at his residence located at Plot 2, Pilot Crescent off Bode Thomas, Surulere, Lagos.
“A search was conducted in his apartment and several forged documents relating to Union Bank Plc and National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) were found in his possession.
“Other correspondence via e-mail to some foreigners, where he claimed to have won a fictitious European Winning Lottery Programme, were also found in his laptop.”
Daramola affirmed that his offences violated Sections 6, 8 (b) and 1(3) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act, Laws of the Federation republic of Nigeria.
Benneth was charged by the EFCC on 10 counts charges relating to forgery and possession of fraudulent document.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - An American author sued the prolific filmmaker Tyler Perry in a federal court on Tuesday, accusing him of lifting the plot of his 2012 movie, "Good Deeds," from her book.
Terri Donald, who also writes under the pseudonym TLO Red'ness, says Perry based the film on her 2007 book, "Bad Apples Can Be Good Fruit."
The lawsuit, filed in Philadelphia, says Donald sent a copy of her book to Perry's company before production on the movie began.
Donald is seeking $225,000 in initial damages as well as an injunction requiring the company to add a credit for her book in the opening and closing credits. The lawsuit also calls for the company to provide an accounting of the movie's revenues.
The drama, which stars Perry as a wealthy businessman who meets a struggling single mother, earned approximately $35 million at the box office after its February release.
Representatives for Perry and Lions Gate Entertainment, which released the film and is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit, did not respond to requests for comment on Tuesday.
Perry is best known for his portrayal in drag of the character Madea in several of his films.

#This doesn't seem good,i truly feel for Tyler....*sobs*


This followed the third reading and passage of “A Bill for an Act to repeal the Prisons Act Cap. P29 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 and enact the Nigerian Prisons and Correctional Service, to make comprehensive provisions for the administration of Prisons in Nigeria and for related purposes” by the Senate.

According to the Bill, the name change is “to underscore the humane aspect of the reform focus of prisons administrations and to conform to provisions in the international instrument.”
The lawmakers undertook a clause-by-clause consideration of the report of the Senate Committee on Interior after a motion moved by its Chairman, Abubakar Bagudu.
The Senate also approved a recommendation that deleted the words ‘hard labour’ and replaced it with ‘prison labour’.
The Senators noted that “hard labour” is an inheritance from colonial era and should be deleted and replaced with “prisons labour.”
The Bill also empowered the State Comptroller of Prisons to reject additional prisoners where the prison in question is already filled to capacity.
Section 6 (4, 5,6) states: “In the event that the prison has exceeded its maximum capacity, the State Comptroller shall notify the Chief Judge of the State or the State Criminal Justice Committee.
“Upon receipt of the notification the Chief Judge or the State Criminal Justice Committee shall within a period not exceeding one month take necessary steps to rectify the overcrowding.
“Without prejudice to subSection 4, the State Comptroller of Prisons in consultation with the Prison Superintendent shall have the power to reject more intake of prisoners where it is apparent that the prison in question is filled to capacity.”
Senate President David Mark hoped the Bill would bring the required changes to the prison system in the country.
He urged prison officials to ensure that prisoners do not become “more hardened” after serving their sentences but become better citizens.

Heard Omosexy scooped the ELOY award for her performance in the movie, ‘Ties That Bind’.


In what was a shocker to both the audience and apparently to her best friend Gayle King, Oprah Winfrey announced at O Magazine's annual conference in Los Angeles last month that she had recently weathered a breast cancer scare, according to The New York Times.

She did not share much detail, aside from saying that it had only been a false alarm and that she is in good health.  Gayle King, who was onstage with Oprah at the moment, appeared to be surprised and upset at the announcement. One woman on stage noticing King's surprise, chided Oprah for not telling her friend in private and asked her to apologize in front of the audience.
Oprah's health scare is just one of many struggles the media mogul has dealt with over the past year. Her popular television show ended after 25 years on the air and her new cable network, OWN, continues to strive for a foothold in ratings and audience.
