Shocking Photos Of Nigeria’s Brutal Boxing Where Fighters Wrap Hands In Rope To ‘Kill’ Each Other

Posted by Samuel on Mon 16th Sep, 2019 – tori.ng

Photos have shown Nigeria’s brutal boxing where fighters wrap their hands in rope to ‘kill’ each other.

The traditional Nigerian sport of Dambe is like boxing but without protection. Opponents choose their strongest hand and wrap it in hard rope
 Shocking pictures have revealed a glimpse into the mostly hidden world of a brutal Nigerian sport known as Dambe.

The sport is like boxing but without protection. Opponents choose their strongest hand and wrap it in hard rope.

Their other hand is meant to act as a shield. Until recently, competitors were allowed to dip the hard rope in resin and even coat it in shards of glass.
 That practise is now illegal but the sport is still deadly. And knocking your opponent out is even known as ‘killing’ them.

The ancient tradition is usually practised by Hausas in the north of Nigeria but it has spread to southern areas as well. 

Their other hand is meant to act as a shield to defend them for the crippling blows. Until recently, competitors were allowed to dip the hard rope in resin and even coat it in shards of glass
Dambe fighters in Lagos battle on the beach under floodlights while jumbo screens replay them for audience members who are far away.

The way to win the fight, which is centuries old, is by punching and kicking your opponent until they fall down.
 The tradition is entrenched among butcher caste groups and is very heavily focussed on communities.The sport started from clans of butchers travelling to different villages at harvest and fighting those from the area as part of the festival entertainment.

Knocking out a Dambe opponent is known as ‘killing’ them – which serves as a reminder of the sport’s brutality. The ancient tradition is usually practised by Hausas in the north of Nigeria but it has spread to southern areas as well
Butchers come from a lower caste of Hausa society – they are the only ones who could ritually slaughter animals and handle meat. They would form teams from the village – known as armies – and challenge men from other butchers guilds, as well locals from the audience.

Nowadays, that sense of team is still very strong, and the sport is still dominated by the butchers caste, but competitors will often be very young – teenagers who train in gyms and yards – and will fight all year round.
 Fighters join a professional community which travel to fight, often now in temporary rings, rather than just inside a circle of spectators as in the past. They fight for prize money – just as they did traditionally – as harvest was a time of wealth.

An average competitor will win 200,000 naira ($556) in a fight and some make careers out of it.

They wear shorts, rather than loincloths, and the pre-fight entertainment is more elaborate, and can even use sound systems. 

Fights last three rounds – though these rounds are not timed – their end is signified either when there is a lull in the action, one of the contestants or an official calls a stop to it, or when someone is knocked down.

 There are no official weight classes, though fighters are normally matched up with someone of a similar size.

The strapped up strong arm is knows as the ‘spear’, while the front hand is called the ‘shield’ – and must be held with the palm open and facing the opponent. As well as for protection, the shield can also be used to grab hold of an opponent.

Contestants can also kick with both legs – the lead leg can sometimes be wrapped with a chain and is also used for defence.
 Some fighters cut their legs and arms with razor blades before putting ‘medicine’ in them and wrapping them in hard rope.

Other traditions include the use of amulets for supernatural protection, with some fighters wrapping them to their spear hand, while some of the fighting groups also ritually smoke marijuana before matches. ***Source: Daily Mail UK

Oh No! Beautiful Accountant Electrocuted While Bathing After Phone She Was Charging Fell Into Bath

A beautiful accountant has died by electrocution after the phone she was charging fell into her bath.

Evgenia Shulyatyeva

Evgenia Shulyatyeva was found dead in the bathroom of her family home after being electrocuted
 A selfie-loving accountant died after her mobile phone ‘slipped’ into the bath she was laying in whilst charging.

Evgenia Shulyatyeva, 26, died at the scene in Kirovo-Chepetsk, Russia, after being electrocuted by the device when it fell into the water.
 Her body was found by her devastated mum, Vera, just minutes later.

Evgenia’s death is now being investigated by the Russian Investigative Committee following a string of similar deaths in the country.

Paying tribute to Evgenia, friends posted photos online.

One said: “Sister … rest in peace …. sleep well …. you are forever in our hearts … Call me tomorrow, say that was a just a dream, that this is not the truth.”

Another added: “You were so bright …Sleep well….”

Her death follows that of another girl who was electrocuted in her bath after her phone fell in the water.

Evgenia Shulyatyeva

Russian martial arts champion Irina Rybnikova, 15, died immediately as a result of the “tragic accident”.
 The 15-year-old was found dead in the water at her home in Bratsk, Russia, in December.

She was a champion fighter in pankration – an ancient Greek form of “no rules” boxing and wrestling – and had been selected for her country’s national team.

Speaking previously after Irina’s death, Yury Agrafonov, the head of radio-electronic department of Irkutsk State University, said: “Water is a good conductor. This is why there was a short circuit when the phone fell into the water.

“If the phone had not been plugged in to 220 volts, the tragedy would not have happened.”

Another woman, 26-year-old Liliya Novikova, who was dubbed Russia’s “most beautiful poker player”, was found dead from a suspected massive electric shock in her bathroom in June.

Liliya Novikova had been alone at home and her body was discovered on the floor of her bathroom in Moscow. ***Source: The Sun UK

Two Nigerian Men Die After Drug They Swallowed Burst During A Flight (Video)

After swallowing drugs, two Nigerians who risked their lives have died during a flight from Brazil to Ethiopia.


The two Nigerians couldn’t survive the incident Two Nigerian men have lost their lives after the drugs they swallowed burst during a flight from Brazil to Ethiopia. The deceased, identified as Chigozie Pascal Aniagbado and Chijioke Chidioka Ogbuefi, died before an emergency landing, despite the fact that CPR was performed on them. Narrating how it happened, an eyewitness said: “I was in an Ethiopian Airline from Brazil to Ethiopia. My seat number falls at the middle of two men.The flight was 12hrs. The young man at my right asked me to check the flight map to know how far we had gone which I did. We were already half the journey.Then he said to me “do you speak Igbo,” I said “yes.” He said he doesn’t know if he would make this journey that it seems the drugs he swallowed must have exceeded its stay in his system.Then my mind sank. I began to shiver. He said ‘don’t be scared, it’s not in the bag, it is inside my body.’ He said I should stand and get him water, but I refused because I was scared he might insert something in my bag.I had to wave for the air hostess to come. She came and served him water. He demanded for food, he was given. He became calm. Few minutes later, he brought an olive oil from his bag and drank.Then he started shivering and fell down. That was when all the doctors in the plane assembled, questioning, asking his country and tribe.He was able to open up that he swallowed drugs. The doctors had to put him on oxygen, then the other also started shivering.Because of them, we were to have an emergency landing. The pilots said no matter their crime, it’s their priority to keep them alive.We couldn’t land the said country has Ebola ,so we proceed while they are on oxygen….. One if men is the son of of Best biscuits and he lost is father last year. While typing, I was told they had lost the battle. May their soul rest in piece. Watch video below:
