University of Tasmania PhD Research funding for International Students in Australia

Lightning kills man carrying a calabash of money inside a hotel room

Kelechi Nwigbo, a Germany-returnee, has allegedly been killed by lightning in his hotel room behind Eke Market, Afipko, Ebonyi State.

He had checked into the hotel with the instruction that nobody should disturb him, but after four days, the hotel management started perceiving an offensive odour from his room and immediately alerted the police.

When officers broke into the room, Nwigbo was seen carrying a calabash with some money inside and with white cloth material on his head and waist. The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Odah Loveth, confirmed the incident

Workers in the hotel revealed that they heard the thunder strike from his window but because he had instructed that nobody should come to his room unless he called the hotel’s attention, they did not bother going to check on him.

Police investigation revealed that the last time he visited Nigeria was in 2017 and his family was not aware of his recent trip to the country, let alone being in Afikpo.

Centralis Scholarship Competition at Central Michigan University, USA

“Post about my music not about my death, I didn’t die”- Sky B

Nigerian singer, Sky B has openly debunked the rumour which went viral some days ago, that he has finally died after battling with ill health for a long time.

According to the singer, the rumor stemmed from a movie which he acted in Owerri, that showed him giving up the ghost.


In his words;

The rumor about my death started after acting a movie last week in Owerri, I died in the movie not in real life.

The main one that hit the net was the one that happened yesterday around 2:30am I had an emergency which I was taken to the hospital and I called a few friends to pray for me and I updated on my status that I was critically ill and needed prayers only for me to come out after hours of taking drip to hear about my death rumor everywhere.

I was shocked at first but, now I thank God today that I didn’t die and I can’t die and please let no one post anything about my death. Please I beg you to post about my music not about my death.

I apologize to everyone who was hurt and to people who cared about me and also I apologize to my greatest fans home and abroad who called tirelessly and messaged to get facts.

Please SkyB is strong now and ready to perform anywhere on any stage and dropping new songs too. I’m back fully with earth and water”.

PhD Studentship in Biology & Ecology of Asia at University of Cambridge in UK, 2020

Lady beats up boyfriend with bathroom slippers for cheating on her (Video)

A viral video shows an unnamed student beating up another student she referred to as his boyfriend who cheated on her with another lady.

While ranting, the lady could be seen hitting her boyfriend several times on the head as he sat harmlessly with no effort to defend himself.

Other colleague students present in the hall where the abuse was ongoing could be heard pleading on the guy’s behalf, saying he had a test the next day, so the beatings might affect him.

Meanwhile, as the video went viral and social media users reacted angrily to it calling it a blatant abuse, the lady has made another video to apologise for her conduct.

According to her, she got carried away in the heat of the moment and was not thinking right when she attacked the so-called boyfriend.

Revealed: The Rare Sickness That Killed Danfo Driver’s Mad Melon

Following his sudden death, more details have emerged revealing the cause of death of Danfo Driver’s Mad Melon.

Mad Melon

Mad Melon Son of one-half of the legendary Nigerian music group, Danfo Drivers, Mad Melon, who died last week, Michael Emiefah has revealed the cause of his father’s death. According to him, Mad Melon had been suffering from tuberculosis for some time now. The 18 year-old secondary school leaver made the revelation in a chat with Showtime, during a condolence visit to the family, at their Ezeagu Street, residence in Ajegunle area of Lagos. Michael, who lives with his mother and elder sister, Jennifer in Delta State rushed down to Lagos, upon receiving the sad news of his father’s death. Speaking with Showtime, Michael said Melon had been suffering from tuberculosis for some time now. He described his death as painful, regretting, however, that his late father did not take his health seriously. In an emotion-laden voice, the poor boy said: “He didn’t take his health seriously. He was still indulging in those bad habits he was warned to desist from. His death is painful despite his shortcomings.’‘We heard the news of his death and decided to rush down. I will try my best to take of my mother. I am the man in the house now. Any time I remember him, it pains me in my heart. I don’t know what to do,I can’t cry neither can I laugh. He didn’t stay away from certain things were harmful to his health. I think that was what led to his death,” Michael said. However, condoling the bereaved family last weekend, founder of Mabel oboh Centre for Save Our Stars, MOCSOS, Mrs. Mabel Oboh-Udoh advised Nigerian entertainers to take their health seriously. Community pharmacists worry over exposure of Nigerians to falsified medicines. Oboh said Melon’s death was ‘avoidable’ adding that nobody was aware of his health condition. Contrary to his band mate, Mountain Black’s ranting that was abandoned by the music industry, MOCSOS boss said that the deceased did not seek help from anybody. “Mad Melon was a great talent, a fantastic person. But definitely, something went wrong along the line. This is what my NGO, Save Our Stars is advocating. Nobody was aware of his health condition. He didn’t seek help from anybody and if he had done so, we would have helped to save his life.”“I believe that his death could have been avoided. I am calling on Nigerian artistes to stay away from drugs, bad habits and things that could be harmful to their health. We have to join forces to re-educate ourselves. I am so angry. What I am saying to entertainers is that they don’t have to take our own health insurance scheme. They can take another one or better still, engage the services of a private doctor,” Oboh said. Meanwhile, the burial plans announced by Mountain Black, revealed that there will be wake up on October 11, while his remains will be laid to rest the follow day.
