Mercy Johnson Spills On Having A Fourth Baby

Featured Image

Mercy Johnson is adored both in Nigeria and outside its shores which is why her millions of fans are gushing about her new revelation on expecting baby number four.

It’s no news that the sultry actress had her kids back to back — three kids in three years with zero spacing.

Ovwe Medeme caught up with MJ who revealed she told her husband “it was a hit”.

Mercy Johnson said, “That is why we had to take time before the fourth one. I think what has taken me this far is basing my decisions on a scale of preference. I love what I do, I adore my husband. I adore my kids. So every time I have to make a decision, I have to think about which is more important and I start from there. I understand that the home front is more important. So I manage the home front and then create time to do what I love to do. I think that has helped me get this far. The balancing has helped me so much.”

When Medeme asked, “How soon should we expect the fourth one?” Mercy replied sarcastically, “Coming soon” – like they say in the Nigerian movie industry.

Meanwhile, peep Mercy’s figure and how did she get her post-baby bod back so quick?

New Arsenal striker Takuma Asano has reportedly been denied a work permit, according to Arsene Wenger.

The 21-year-old joined from Sanfrecce Hiroshima, but will have to be loaned out and apply next summer.

Asano is one of only three players Wenger has signed this summer and had been set to compete for a place in the first-team squad after impressing for Japan at the Olympic Games.

“He’s a player I believe in a lot,” Wenger told reporters after confirming the decision. “I will take care of him and make sure he gets to the right place.”

When asked why his application was unsuccessful, the manager replied: “Because he didn’t cost £50 million.”

The Planned Arraignment Of Chinakwe For Naming His Pet Dog “Buhari” Is Oppressive, Illegal

The Planned Arraignment Of Chinakwe For Naming His Pet Dog “Buhari” Is Oppressive, Illegal, By Inibehe Effiong

The Nigeria Police Force, Ogun State Command has rearrested a 41-year-old trader who named his pet dog “Buhari”, Mr. Joe Chinakwe and will arraign him before the Sango Magistrate Court in Ogun State on Monday. It is likely that the powers that be in Abuja have instructed the police to deal with the man for an act that is not a criminal offence.

This piece was written by Inibehe Effiong.The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com

Confirming his second arrest to Punch newspaper, Mr Chinakwe said:

“I had to leave for Eleweran very early on Friday after receiving a letter on Thursday evening inviting me to the Command. I thought I was being called over for a peace talk, I never knew it was for the purpose of detaining me again.

READ ALSO: Should Naming A Dog After The President Be Regarded As Crime?

“I am a law-abiding citizen of this country, I have never deliberately committed any offence before, I don’t know why I am being treated like this.

“I only called the dog that name for the love I have for President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigeria, I didn’t mean to taunt or hurt anybody with it. I don’t know what next could follow this, I am afraid for my life, I am in danger, please help me.”

Narrating how the whole matter started to Punch, Obinna Obasi, a relative of the detained man stated thus:

““Kalilu, the main accuser, said Buhari was the name of his father and that Joe deliberately gave his dog that name to taunt him and the rest of the Hausa residents in the area. But we are still wondering if it is now an offence to give your pet animal the name of your choice. Even if you say it is an offence, at least we have all sat together to resolve the whole issue and the man himself has shown some sense of responsibility by saying he was sorry if his action offended anybody. So, why is he still being harassed till now? This is not fair. His persecution is affecting his pregnant wife and little daughter who have both been very sick as a result of the problem,” he said.

Meanwhile, Chinakwe and his relatives, according to the newspaper have “vehemently” denied the allegation by the police that he inscribed “Buhari” on both sides of his dog’s body and walked around with it.

This development has made it imperative for me to once again intervene in this matter by drawing the attention of the authorities to the unconstitutionality of their actions against Mr. Chinakwe.

This government has proven once again that it has no respect for human rights. Chinakwe’s conduct may be morally questionable, but its certainly not a criminal offence under our extant laws. There is no sanctity or special protection for the name ‘Buhari’ under the law. If what Chinakwe did is a crime, it means that any Nigerian, including political office holders and policemen, that has given his or her pet dog a human name is liable to be arrested, detained and prosecuted.

The feeling of the so-called “average Northerner” as ridiculously stated by the police is legally inconsequential. Offences are not created by human feelings. They are created by the express provisions of the statute. The courts cannot rely on Section 249 (1) (a) of the Criminal Code to begin to define or itemise “conducts” that are “likely to cause a breach of the peace”. That is the exclusive power of the legislature under Section 4 of the Constitution.

Crimes must enjoy precision under the law. It is not within the judicial powers of the courts to create offences by probing into the feelings of people. That will amount to setting fire on our constitutional freedoms and democracy. It will also be a rape on the principle of the separation of powers.

Nigerians should know that the Criminal Code Cap. C38 LFN 2004 is a colonial legacy that was handed down to the country upon independence. The anachronistic law actually came into force on June 1st, 1916 (100 years ago).

Most of the provisions in the law were made to meet the oppressive and undemocratic aspirations of the colonialists. Most states in the federation, including Ogun State (See Criminal Code Cap. 29 Vol. 11 Laws of Ogun State 2006) have merely reproduced the archaic law, word for word, without substantial amendments.

I submit that a “conduct” that is itself lawful (such as giving a dog a human name) cannot become unlawful overnight because of the peculiarities of the environment or the feelings of members of a given community, tribe and religion. If it were not so, the National Assembly would not have bothered to enact the Same Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Act 2013 since homosexuality and lesbianism were repulsive and offensive to the feelings of most Nigerians before the intervention of the National Assembly.

The need for the National Assembly to enact the anti-gay law arose partly because except a conduct is specifically made a criminal offence, there can be no tenable argument about its likelihood of causing a breach of the peace under Section 249 (1) (a) of the Criminal Code.

This is very elementary.

The letters and spirit of Section 36 (12) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) forbids the arrest, detention or prosecution of a person for a conduct that is not a criminal offence under a written law. The Supreme Court in the celebrated case of Aoko v Fagbemi (1961) 1 All NLR 400 said so clearly.

Under our criminal law and jurisprudence, offences are principally constituted by two indispensable elements: The physical element – act or omission (actus reus) and the mental element – criminal intent (mens rea). The offence that the police is erroneously alluding to is a simple offence with a punishment of one month imprisonment.

Giving a dog a human name, irrespective of the status of the human beings bearing that name, as at today, is not a criminal offence in Nigeria. Both the actus reus and mens rea are absent and neither the police nor “the average Northerner” can arbitrarily manufacture them. If the police and the Government of Ogun State intend to criminalise giving pet dogs human names, they should sponsor a bill to the parliament to that effect.

Until such an absurd law is enacted and tested to be consistent with the Nigerian Constitution, the offensive and illegal efforts to punish Chinakwe in the guise of enforcing Section 249 (1) (a) of the Criminal Code or any other provision thereof remains an exercise in futility.

This is the height of impunity.

This is one case that the police will not be able to prove and secure conviction. On a personal note, I would have willingly represented and enforced Mr. Chinakwe’s fundamental rights pro bono (free of charge) but for my current national assignment which is really holding me down from helping the oppressed. Fortunately my service period will be over in about six weeks time.

In the light of the foregoing, the Nigeria Police Force and those instigating them should immediately release Mr. Chinakwe and stop embarrassing Nigeria before the international community. The Police and the government should concentrate on pressing security challenges facing the nation and stop chasing shadows and dissipating scarce resources on frivolity.

May a day never come in this country when offences will be created based on the feelings of members of a particular community, tribe or religion and not by statute.

Middlesbrough Show They Are Ready For EPL – Karanka

Featured Image

Aitor Karanka, Middlesbrough gaffer believes his side showed they’re prepared to play in the EPL with their 2-1 win over Sunderland.

The promoted side recorded a 1-1 draw at home in the first match against Stoke. With the win over Sunderland, the first of this campaign.

Stuani’s stunning 13th minute strike from 25-yards out opened the scoring. And he completed his brace by rounding off a team effort on the stroke of halftime.

Patrick van Aanholt pulled one back for Sunderland in the second half but Boro held on for the victory, their maturity elating Karanka despite a relative lack of top-flight experience.

“The most important thing as always is the points. It’s always important to win, especially in a derby and for our crowd who have been waiting for this moment for a long time, so I’m pleased for the players and the crowd,” Karanka said in a post-match interview.

“The key was the first half. I told the players they would start at 150 per cent but with players of the quality of Cristhian Stuani we were able to score a first goal like that which opened up the game.

“The players showed we are ready for the season. We are playing well, compact and with intensity so it was important to get points as quickly as possible.”

“Valencia Is The Best Right Back In The World” – Herrera

Featured Image

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera believes his teammate, Antonio Valencia is the best right back in the world.

The defender has been utilised under Jose Mourinho, as he takes his preseason form into the new EPL campaign.

And Herrera believes only Juventus full-back Dani Alves can be put in the same bracket as Valencia at the moment.

“I know him and have always liked the way he plays,” Herrera told MUTV. “I think Antonio is one of the best right-backs in the world.

“I know he’s not a normal right-back because he used to play as a winger, but I think that, right now, he is the best right-back in the world, maybe with Dani Alves, because I like Dani Alves a lot.

“When you have a right-back who is quick to defend and he is crossing maybe six or seven times a game, always or almost always successfully, then he understands football.

“When I have the ball, I know that Antonio’s always ready to receive it, always to give you one solution.

“I think he’s going to be very important this season. He has already been very important for the club, he has already been here seven years, but I think I told you at the end of the last season something good is being cooked and everyone wants to be part of that.”

Ryan Lochte Apologizes For Lying About Robbery Incident

Ryan Lochte Apologizes For Lying About Robbery Incident – US Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte has apologized for over-exaggerating a robbery incident in Rio, Brazil.

 

Lochte had vandalized a gas station, then along with three other US Olympic swimmers, had claimed they were robbed at gunpoint.

“That’s why I’m taking full responsibility for it, is because I overexaggerated that story and if I had never done that, we wouldn’t be in this mess,” Lochte said in an interview on Sunday.

Lochte had claimed they were robbed by armed robbers pretending to be police, but police had denied the story, saying they were actually detained by real police and it was for vandalizing a gas station bathroom.

“I left details out… I left certain things out, and I overexaggerated some parts of the story,” he said in the interview.

Lochte is currently back in the US, but the other 3 swimmers – Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and Jimmy Feigen – are still in Brazil after their passports were confiscated by a judge, and Lochte said he felt like he let down.

“I wanted to be there, like, I don’t want them to think that I left, and left them dry because they were my teammates. I just wanted to make sure that they were at home safe before I came out and talked,” he added.

Genevieve Nnaji Has An Incredible Story To Her Glory, Actor Reveals

Featured Image

Genevieve Nnaji is one of Africa’s most celebrated actors and her childhood story has served as a bedrock for young, disadvantaged children to learn from.

Born into a financially-disadvantaged family, Genevieve was impregnated at the age of fifteen.

Nnaji started her acting career as a child actress in the then popular television soap opera Ripples at the age of 8. In 1998 at the age of 19 she was introduced into the growing Nigerian film industry with the movie “Most Wanted”.

In 2009, the 37-year-old was referred to as the Julia Roberts of Africa by Oprah Winfrey.

Okechukwu Joseph, a famous actor of the nineties, a time when Genny was becoming a household name, disclosed in an interview about his close relationship with the actress as he described her as the “young Amazon who was out to play the Esther for her family”.

He said, “Genny and I met and became friends on the set of Mark of the Beast. Of course in her very early days. It was as though we were in some type of experiment. But I learned a lot about her within that short period. Two unforgettable moments- the day she introduced her little brother to me and the day she told me literally everything about herself.”

“She trusted me that much. My mind was racing like crazy and I kept wondering how so little people knew about this young Amazon who was out to play the Esther for her family,” the actor stated.

“She felt like family to me. She was so full of pragmatic energy and so on-the-go- like woman on a mission,” Okechukwu concluded with, “Never ready to play around with stuff she couldn’t put up with. She has got an incredible story to her glory.”

Angelique Kerber One Win Away From Shifting Serena Williams From Top Spot

Featured Image

Angelique Kerber is edging closer to replacing Serena Williams at the summit of tennis, with the star needing just one win to achieve that feat.

The German beat Simona Halep 6-3, 6-4 to move closer to the top spot in women’s tennis. Williams has led the WTA rankings for 183 consecutive weeks, the second-longest such stretch.

A win on Sunday over 15th-seeded Karolina Pliskova would move Kerber to the top spot in next week’s rankings. Williams dropped out at the start of the tournament because of an inflamed shoulder, leaving her ranking vulnerable.

”I’ve had a lot of ups and downs the last few years and a lot of experiences from which I’ve learned,” Kerber said. ”I think I’m one of the best tennis players.

”One match away, still a long way to go.”

She’d become only the second German woman to hold the top spot. Steffi Graf’s reign at No. 1 ended in 1997. It would be Kerber’s first title in Cincinnati – she lost her other finals appearance in 2012.

Featured Image

A trader named his dog “Buhari” after Nigerian president Muhammad Buhari, and he was arrested by the Ogun State police.

Joe Chinakwe, who lives in Ogun State was released only to be rearrested on Saturday, August 20, and is being charged to court. What are his charges?

The charges leveled against Chinakwe according to the Ogun State police command is in Section 249 (1) (d) of the Criminal Code Cap 29 Vol.11 laws of Ogun State of Nigeria 2006:

“The provision is to the effect that “every person who, in any public place, conducts himself in a manner likely to cause a breach of the peace” shall be deemed idle and disorderly persons, and may be arrested without warrant, and shall be guilty of a simple offence, and shall be liable to imprisonment for one month.”

Here is what the law says about the Ogun State police versus the man who named his dog Buhari:

Section 36 (12) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) states thus,

“Subject as otherwise provided by this Constitution, a person shall not be convicted of a criminal offence unless that offence is defined and the penalty therefore is prescribed in a written law, and in this subsection, a written law refers to an Act of the National Assembly or a Law of a State, any subsidiary legislation or instrument under the provisions of a law.”

According to Inibehe Effiong, a legal practitioner and convener of the Coalition of Human Rights Defenders, COHRD, the correct test for determining whether a conduct is likely to cause a breach of the peace was articulated by the then Federal Supreme Court of Nigeria in a case where it held thus:

“The test to be applied is whether the conduct of the accused was such that a breach of the peace might reasonably have ensued, and the fact that no breach of the peace, in fact, took place is irrelevant.”

Effiong added that “the fact that an individual or a section of the public considers a person’s conduct repulsive and reprehensible does not necessarily bring such conduct within the contemplation of Section 249 (1) (d) of the Criminal Code so as to occasion a likelihood of breach of the peace.”

Mr Joe’s crime has no definition in the Nigerian law as stated till date, therefore he can’t be “conducting himself in a manner likely to breach peace” and can’t be “arrested without warrant” or “imprisoned for a month”.

The simple offense of “breaching peace” comes with “a month imprisonment”. How many people do you encounter daily “causing a breach of peace” including the mad people who roam the street? Still, these ones aren’t imprisoned for a month.

Using the Ogun State criminal code of “Conduct himself” both as a noun and a verb refers to an individual’s composure or ability to comport oneself, which is personal and has nothing to do with anyone or anything else, and is best described in Section 39 (1) of the Nigerian constitution which provides that “Every person shall be entitled to freedom of expression, including freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart ideas and information without interference.”

The questions to ponder on then is, “Is naming a dog Buhari the offense? Or is it because it’s that of a Northerner? Or maybe, the name belongs to a Northerner who is the president? Would it had made a difference if it had been any other Northern name or any other person’s name? If he had named his dog “Obasanjo”, “Tinubu” or “Abubakar” would he have been treated this way?

Till date, Nigerian comedians still use past presidents – who were in power – to make caricature during their shows to the amusement of the audiences. Yet, no comedian has ever been arrested for making a jest of Obasanjo, Tinubu, Yar’adua or Abdusalaam Abubakar.

Rather than arrest a man for a crime he didn’t commit or an act that isn’t criminal by morality or law, shouldn’t the police be educating the ignorant – in this case it refers to a person who doesn’t know naming a dog Buhari isn’t wrong – instead of blowing the case out of proportion.

If harm has been threatened to the man, shouldn’t the police be arresting the people who made the threats? Especially seeing as the accuser isn’t even a Nigerian and just might be deliberately inciting a “breach of peace”?

A name is a name, if Buhari wasn’t the president, would this case have even made news?

The individuals chosen to protect and serve the citizens should be properly educated on the constitution and what constitutes as a crime.

This case would be dismissed from the courts if we lived in a free and fair nation.

Barcelona Confirm Agreement To Sell Claudio Bravo To Manchester City 

Featured Image

​Barcelona have announced an agreement to sell goalkeeper Claudio Bravo to Manchester City has been reached.

The Catalan club’s technical secretary Robert Fernandez said on Barca’s official Twitter account after the 6-2 thrashing of Real Betis on Saturday: “We have the beginning of an agreement with Manchester City for Claudio Bravo.

“We are awaiting events this week. When Claudio leaves, we hope to have a new keeper.”

Manchester City’s desire to sign Bravo has led to the imminent departure of England No 1 Joe Hart from the Etihad Stadium, after more than 10 years at the club.

Guardiola has played Willy Caballero for City’s two opening victories of the Premier League season so far but has left the door open for Hart to remain at the club and work hard to learn how to be more influential in the team’s build-up.

Conte Pleased With Chelsea’s Fighting Spirit

Featured Image

Antonio Conte has stated he his glad with the fighting spirit he has seen so far at Chelsea, as they secured a second 2-1 win on Saturday over Watford.

Capoue put Watford in front a little after the hour mark, and it was down to Batshuayi and Costa to win it for the blues in the final 10 minutes.

The 2-1 win mirrored Chelsea’s result against West Ham on the opening weekend, and Conte was pleased with his side’s commitment as they scored late to snatch another win.

“I feel good because I saw the right commitment, the right spirit from my team,” he is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

“This game wasn’t easy because we were 1-0 down. I’m pleased to see the reaction from my players and this win is very important for us as it gives everyone confidence.

“It is wrong to come to Watford and to think it’s very simple to win. In the first half I saw a good balance between the teams. I think we showed a great intensity in the second half and we pushed them a lot.

“We must understand that we have to fight together and today is another game that we won at the end so it’s very important.”

The Barcelona forward scored a free kick to put Brazil ahead. And then later scored the winning penalty in the 5-4 shootout.

#Rio2016: Neymar Helps Brazil To Gold

Neymar said it was an unforgettable moment after sending the Maracana into raptures on Saturday.

“This is one of the best things that have happened in my life. That’s it,” he said.

“Now my critics will have to shut up.

“I can’t begin to describe my feelings. I have fulfilled my dream and to have fulfilled it in my home country makes me very proud.”

All the talk in the lead up was about the 2014 World Cup semi-final, in which Germany humiliated a Brazil side missing the injured 24-year-old 7-1 in Belo Horizonte.

Goalkeeper Weverton was full of praise for the boy turn legend saying: “God has blessed me. The gold is ours, but it belongs to God.

“I told Neymar that God had given him a second chance. God loves Neymar like he loves all this team.”

Max Meyer had cancelled out the former captain’s opener to force a shoot-out, in which Nils Petersen had his spot-kick saved by Weverton.
