I am not DEAD!!!

I am in so much shock as I type this! Never in my life did I ever imagine that my obituary would be announced when I am still very much alive and in excellent health condition.

Zainab Hong is NOT DEAD! I was not a victim of any of the bomb blasts in Abuja. I am ALIVE and WELL.

My brother and blog visitor, Habib Naseer‎, just called my attention to the shocker on my blog about my reported demise.

Let me use this opportunity to give my deepest and sincere apology to every single blog visitor for my failure to put up updates in the last 2 months. I have been undergoing a training that has taken up a huge chunk of my time lately, hence, my not blogging.

I want to give my heartfelt gratitude to everyone for all the love and good wishes. This is surreal! I am actually in tears right now.

Eby, Emmanuella, CBN and everyone of you, please forgive me. I promise to do my best to bring this blog back to life.

Video of 2 members of the 'One Direction gang' smoking weed leaks. Young fans of the band are disappointed.

A shocking video of  2 members of the sensational UK boy band, ONE Direction, has leaked online. 

In the footage published by MailOnline, band member Louis Tomlinson, 22, and bandmate Zayn Malik, 21, were seen smoking marijuana joints inside the SUV ferrying them to Peru’s Estadio Nacional in Lima where One Direction performed to a 40,000 capacity crowd on April 27.‎

During the 15-minute journey Louis and Zayn joke with each other and the three members of their team traveling with them. Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Niall Horan, all 20, are not in the car but presumably elsewhere in the band’s convoy making its way through the streets.‎
The disappointing footage is sure to affect the mainly young fan base of the boy band which came into limelight after finishing as runners-up at the UK X-factor in 2010.

Not surprised though. They are all in the same boat as Justin Bieber and co.

Beyoncé and Jay Z strangely didn't attend the wedding of Kim K to Jay Z's best friend, Kanye West. But the classy queen Bey took time to wish the couple all the best on her instagram page.

At about the time the wedding commenced in Italy, Beyoncé posted the make-up free photo of herself above.

While West wore a tux by Tisci, the couple's daughter North,  11 months, also wore a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci dress.‎
Kim K tied the knot with Kanye West today May 24th at the historic Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy.
Kim married Kanye today in an intimate (but not so secret!) ceremony which was attended by the couple's nearest and dearest. 
E! News has learned that Rick Wilkinson Jr. officiated the ceremony, which was nothing less than spectacular. 
During the wedding, the couple, along with their guests, enjoyed a magical performance by Andrea Bocelli. The famed Italian tenor serenaded Kim and Kanye with several songs, including "Con te Partiro." 
Kim wore a Givenchy Haute Couture wedding gown, Kanye West wore a custom Givenchy tuxedo & North wore a custom Givenchy Haute Couture dress

White roses were delivered to the Forte today as part of the stunning floral arrangements, and the catering was provided by Galateo Ricevimenti. Guests dined on traditional Tuscan cuisine before they enjoyed an impressive 7-tier cake, which was crafted by Galeto. 
Security was on high alert today at the 16th-century-era fortress, where attendees were required to hand over their cell phones prior to the I-dos. 
The artwork was provided by Vanessa Beecroft Art Installation, while event company Jaulin Decorations was also seen at the Forte, which was adorned with elements of a "strong Tuscan influence" that were "reminiscent of what happened in Florentine art from the 13th century onward," according to a source. 
Prior to the ceremony, two white dress bags, which seemingly contained Kim's wedding dress wear, were sent via private jet from Paris. Kim later got dressed at Forte di Belvedere and while we have yet to see her gown, we have no doubts that bride looked absolutely stunning!
Even before guests stepped foot on the stunning Forte, the excitement had already begun. 
At about 2:40 p.m. Florence time, Kris, Kendall and another man dressed in a tuxedo were part of a larger group waiting outside a villa on the outskirts of Florence before they were transported to the wedding destination. 
 "I saw Kris and Kendall," a second source tells us. "They seemed expectant, upbeat and enthusiastic. They were standing outside waiting to leave and looking at a stunning panoramic view of Florence. They were happy  and excited and you can tell they couldn't wait to go."
And for good reason—congrats to the happy couple!

Atleast 200 people reportedly killed in double bomb explosions that hit Jos.

Two big explosions rocked the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) area inside the Terminus Market near Murtala Mohammed way, in Jos city.

Eyewitness said the explosions shook the entire area causing major panic in the area.

The bombs were primed to inflict maximum casualties as they exploded few minutes apart.

Over 200 people were killed, up from the official 72 dead released earlier by government sources, as the two apparent car bombings had exploded 32 minutes apart.

The first vehicle to explode was a Peugeot J5 van, with the registration number XG 148 BLD. The second blast was carried out with a Toyota van, with a Gombe state license plate number.

An eyewitness told SaharaReporters that the second car, a Toyota Sienna van, had been abandoned since 6 AM Tuesday morning.

At least five residents had informed police officials, suspicious of the mysteriously van parked in their area, but no police arrived at the scene, and nothing was done until the car exploded some hours afterwards. Sources tell SaharaReporters the car “exploded,” after a beeping sound was heard from curious local residents.

Gen. Muhammadu Buhari distances himself from a Scammer in EFCC custody who claims to be his adopted son.

An young man who claimed to be an adopted son of a former military Head of State, General Mohammadu Buhari has been arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over an alleged Twenty Million Naira only fraud

The suspect, Mohammed Buhari,  was arrested over a transaction that has the trappings of voodoo investment scheme. He allegedly obtained N20 million from one Mrs Florence Nwokocha, purportedly to invest in a lucrative oil and gas business with promises of mouth watery returns to the investor. Buhari was allegedly introduced to the lady by his account officer at Ecobank Plc and he agreed to pay Nwokocha, 30 percent annual interest on the sum.

But once the money was transferred,  Buhari cleaned out the account but never paid any interest to the woman.
sources at the EFCC informs that the suspect claims he ran into trouble after he lost the bank guarantee which he secured from another new generation bank. The bank, he claims, voided the guarantee on the ground that the branch of the bank that processed it was not competent to do so.

Buhari is still in the custody of the EFCC as investigations in the case continue.

General Muhammadu Buhari has issued a statement to distance himself from the arrested "Mohammed Buhari" who allegedly scammed a woman to the sum of 20 million naira.

 A statement issued by the General through Com Jasper Azuatalam, Chairman of the "Buhari Vanguard" stated that the tenuous link between the former head of state and the scammer in EFCC detention was aimed at smearing the general.

Read Full Disclaimer :

It is regrettable to note that after several unsuccessful attempts to smear the hard earned respect, popularity, dignity, and enviable image of Muhammadu Buhari, mischief makers have resorted to a laughable tactic of linking Muhammadu Buhari to a crime just because someone who has been alleged to have committed a crime somewhere bears the name "Buhari".
Muhammadu Buhari wishes to state categorically that he does not have any adopted son called "Mohammed Buhari" and had no need to adopt a son at any time having been blessed with choice children, both male and females.  Muhammadu Buhari and his family do not know the said "Mohammed Buhari" who is alleged to be involved in a #20M scam and is being held by EFCC.

Muhammadu Buhari is blessed with very descent and disciplined children who obviously took after their father. His children have no single record of stealing and an inordinate behavior anywhere in the world. They do not seek attention, but have proven the stuff their father is made of any time their character is put to test.
However, this is understandable, since the entire attempts by mischief makers to discredit Muhammadu Buhari as an individual has failed. We frown at these poorly articulated gimmicks to indirectly link Muhammadu Buhari and his family to a crime allegedly committed by someone unknown to him and his family just for the fact that the said suspect bears the name "Mohammed Buhari".
