Nigeria had a general Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) organized across the nation today. The examinations are being conducted for university admissions, however, it is not clear how the question papers reportedly sneaked out from invigilators hours before the approved start time for the exams. Nigerian test bodies are notorious for a culture of aiding and abetting examination malpractices, the scourge grows every exam period in Nigeria.
Today, UTME candidates were sighted earlier in the morning before examination commenced, downloading some alphabets supposedly believed to be answers from sources they claim are authoritative' in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination organizing body. Some of them said they already had the questions leaked since the eve of the exam.

Top 10 Notable Breakups in the Naija Music Industry
Nothing seems to last for too long in this fast paced world where change has been said to be the only constant thing. Sadly though, changes of certain kinds are upsetting on the people involved and even observers of the ensuing drama. This brings us to the issue of popular music groups/collaborations “breaking up”.
We bring to you today a countdown of the top ten notable breakups in the Nigerian Music Industry climaxing with the most recent- that of everyone’s beloved Mo’hits crew.
Remedies- Comprising of the talented trio of rapper cum singer Eedris Abdulkareem, Tony Tetuila and Eddy Remedy, this was one of the groups that defined the style now known as “Naija Hip Hop”. The Remedies was formed in 1997 and hit songs like “shakamo” and “omoge” endeared them to millions of people all over West Africa. The group split up in 1999 when the henchman of the crew, Eedris Abdulkareem decided to launch a solo career.
Eedris Abdulkareem’s solo career started off to a glistening start with the release of 3 successful albums with the Kennis Music label imprint between 2002 and 2004. His fortunes however took a downturn in 2004 after a fracas with the American rapper 50 cent. His subsequent album “King is Back” was released on his La Crème record label and he is still has a visible presence on the naija music scene.
Tony Tetuila also did very well on his own with smash hit songs like “omode meta”, I’m in love with 2 women” and “my car” which became a street sensation. He has 5 albums to date.
The third member of the group Eddy Remedy was unfortunately not able to kick-start a successful solo career. He has an album “Leave Eddy Alone” to his credit.
Plantashun Boyz- This defunct group of 3 comprising of 2face, Faze and BlackFace needs no introduction, especially as one of them- 2face- has gone on to become a legend of African contemporary music. They released two albums, Body and Soul(2000) and Sold Out(2003) before going their separate ways in 2004.
2face has since gone on to release 4 multiple award winning albums (Face 2 Face (2004), Grass 2 Grace (2006), The Unstoppable (2008) and The Unstoppable International Edition in 2010, bag numerous prestigious awards and nominations and become an Icon of Nigerian and African Music all over the world.
Faze has released three albums since- Faze Alone (2004), “Independent” which spawned several hit singles in 2006 and Originality (2008).
BlackFace has only one album to his credit. He also co-wrote 2face’s breakthrough single- African queen.
The Plantashun Boyz collaborated on a reunion album titled “Plan B” in 2007.
Tears flowed freely Tuesday March 13, 2012 at the Oke-odo village situated between Olokopupa and Ajibawo Community, along Idiroko, Ogun State, following the killing of a clergy man, identified as Pastor David Ogbolu and a yet to be identified 7 year-old school boy by an armed gang said to be working for an unnamed land grabber.
Reports said the hoodlums stormed the sleeping village and started shooting rapidly at all directions. A police Inspector identified as Salami Mohammed and another person said to be working with a construction company named Mayowa Ette were caught in the reckless use of fire power and are critically lying at an undisclosed medical center where doctors are battling to save their lives.
The cause of the invasion and killing is still a mystery to the entire village, especially the bereaved. This is even as the police have launched a high powered investigation into the dastardly act.
The hoodlums, we learnt, stormed the Oke-odo village in two unmarked vehicles and motorcycles, shooting sporadically, during which the school boy who was in a car with his mother was hit. Report has it that the mother of the 7 year-old boy went to pick him from Faith Academy in Canaan land when the unfortunate incident happened.
But we scooped that the Pastor said to be in charge of Christ Bible Gospel Church in the area, was the principal target of the hoodlums who were armed to teeth. They reportedly laid ambush against him and swooped on him while on a bike with one of his co-workers.
The reality star and entrepreneur was launching her True Reflection scent when an unidentified woman dumped white powder all over Kardashian, yelling what sounded like “Fur Hag!” as an apparent stunt on behalf of animal rights activists.
On Friday, Kardashian called the incident an example of “bullying” but explained that she didn’t press charges because she “didn’t want to hold up the event.”
In an interview with her home network E!, however, she said she might take legal action after all.
in her interview she said:
“I said earlier, no I wasn’t [going to file a complaint],” said Kardashian, but continued, “I am just going to think about it, because I don’t want someone to think they can really get away with that. So we are going to handle that.”
Kardashian was more upset about how the attack distracted from the evening’s festivities, which benefited a charitable organization.
She also expressed fear concerning safety.
“What if that was some other substance? What if that person had a dangerous weapon?” Kardashian says she thought in the aftermath.
US singer Ray J has hit back after being accused of supplying Whitney Houston with cocaine - including the dose that led to her drowning death.
A spokesman for the 31-year-old singer, songwriter, record producer and actor denied the claims - and said he did not even know Houston had begun using the drug again.
Leolah Brown, the sister of Houston's ex-husband Bobby Brown, appeared on US television on Thursday where she suggested Ray J was to blame.
But the singer's representative told celebrity website TMZ that her allegations were "absolute BS".
Houston, 48, was found dead in the bath of her Beverly Hills hotel room on the eve of the Grammy Awards last month.
She died from accidental drowning due to the effects of cocaine use and heart disease.
Several bottles of prescription medicine were found in her hotel room, but coroner's officials said they were not in excessive quantities.
A gang of gunmen on Thursday abducted the wife of a lawmaker representing Rivers East Senatorial District, Senator George Sekibo.
The victim, Mrs. Asime Sekibo, was said to have been kidnapped by the armed men at about 6.30 pm near Obiri Ikwerre on East-West Road in Port Harcourt.
It was learnt that the lawmaker’s wife was waylaid by the hoodlums while she was returning home from a function.
SATURDAY PUNCH learnt that Asime’s abductors had overtaken her vehicle after trailing her for about 15 minutes.
Numbering about five, the bandits, who allegedly wielded AK-47 rifles, were said to have shot sporadically into the air before going for their target.
An eyewitness explained that the senator’s wife was ordered out of her vehicle and forced into the waiting vehicle of the marauders.
“She was driving on the East-West Road when some men ambushed her and took her away to an unknown destination. We don’t actually know the reason she was kidnapped because she is a good woman,” the eyewitness said.
A top government official expressed surprise over the abduction of the senator’s wife, explaining that the state government would wait for the outcome of police investigation.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr. Ben Ugwuegbulam, who could not confirm the incident, promised to speak on the matter the moment he got details of the abduction.
But a top police officer, who craved anonymity, confirmed the kidnap and added that investigation had been intensified towards rescuing the woman.
this was a while ago but seriously this is bad!!!
It is gradually becoming a norm both in Africa and the rest of the world that female celebrities now prefer going naked or semi naked on stage.
Now fame is one sweet thing…but it becomes poison if you cant handle it well…..
So many celebs have been brought back to earth with ONE moment of silliness…..madness…..stupidity.
And now, one of our African musicians has let her guard down with her prized asset immortalised in the lens of a yet to be recognized photographer…..
Once again, In Touch is trying to make trouble forKourtney Kardashian andScott Disick.
According to the tabloid, neither Kardashian’s pregnancy nor the couple’s son Mason could stop Disick from “ditching” her for a romp in New York earlier this month.
A so-called “insider” claims to have seen Disick partying at a bar and “drinking a lot. He looked like a single guy without a care in the world.”
In Touch quotes a “source” as saying Disick had flown to New York “in order to escape Kourtney” and alleges “things have gotten so bad between them that, new baby or not, they can’t even have a civil conversation.”
“And though part of [Kardashian] holds out hope that Scott will eventually grow up and be a good dad, that isn’t likely to happen any time soon,” writes the tabloid, with the “insider” explaining, “He doesn’t see the error of his ways.”
Ms Dechasa was dragged by her hair
An investigation has been launched in Lebanon after an Ethiopian housemaid committed suicide a week after video was aired of her being dragged through the street and abducted.
Ethiopia's consul general said Alem Dechasa killed herself on Wednesday, a week after the LBCI television channel played amateur footage of her being lifted off the ground by her hair and forced head-first into a car.
The horrifying footage sparked national outrage in Lebanon.
The consul general, who saw Ms Dechasa on Tuesday, said she had been taken to hospital in order to recover.
The Lebanese cabinet condemned the violent incident and ordered an investigation into the matter before Ms Dechasa died.
But the campaign group Human Rights Watch (HRW) is calling for a wider investigation into the ill treatment of domestic workers.
It also wants to know why there appeared to be no follow up into Ms Dechasa's case after she received hospital treatment.
HRW director for Beirut Nadim Houri said: "Obviously her death is a tragedy. What makes it a bigger tragedy is that we think it could have been prevented.
"Her case is not unique, unfortunately, in Lebanon. In the study released a year-and-a-half ago, we saw an average of one death per week of migrant domestic worker in the country, often they commit suicide, so it's a broader systemic issue.
"So first, we need an independent investigation into first the ill-treatment of this woman and, secondly, why she was not properly followed up when she was transferred to Deir al Salib to get proper treatment."
The video showed a second man helping a first one as he forced Ms Dechasa into the back of the car whilst she screamed: "No, no, no."
After the video was aired, LBCI used the car's licence plate number to identify one of the men.
Activists in Lebanon posted the man's contact information on social media sites and demanded he be sued by the courts.
We know Katy has denied that “Part Of Me” is about her break up with Russell, but the music video couldn’t be any more telling. Katy’s character is listening to the radio, and a caller complains about her boyfriend always being away — and wasn’t “distance”a major catalyst for their split?)
