The three survivors of Titi Sanumi's family, the young lady whose boyfriend set her home ablaze after she called off their relationship, have died.

This brings to eight the number of casualties from the unfortunate incident. Recall that LIB shared the story yesterday about Deji Adenuga and Titi who had been dating for a while and she recently called off their relationship over irreconciable differences.

 Embarrased by her decision to cut ties with him, Deji decided to attack Titi. He took a jerrycan filled with petrol to her house in the middle of the night, threw it in through the window and set the house ablaze.

Five children and three adults were badly affected by the fire. Five of the family members gave up the ghost initially. Sadly, three others died yesterday April 24th.

 Confirming the death of the three other family members, the spokesperson of the state police command, Femi Joseph, gave the names of the deceased persons as Glory Alade, Mercy Alade, Joy Alade, Adebayo Alade, Aladesewa Alade, Johnson Alade and Ayorinde Alade.

“I can confirm to you that three more people have died. The girl (Titi) is the only member of the family alive. For the suspect, we are still on his trail and we will soon get him,” Joseph said.

The police spokesperson said Titi had been admitted to an undisclosed hospital, adding that she was in a traumatic state. He added that efforts are being made to arrest Deji who is on the run. 

Nipsey Hussle's mother says she's been communicating with her son Ermias "Nipsey Hussle" Asghedom via a psychic medium.

Nipsey's mother, Angelique Smith, said that after her son was shot dead by Eric Holder, his spirit rose out of his body and chased his killer.

She said: "His spirit came up out of his body, immediately. The medium told me that he told her that he chased Eric Holder. His spirit, his spirit chased after him, like a superhero, you know? He came out of his body, he said, 'quickly,' and there was especially no pain. And like a superhero, he was already chasing, you know? But what did he do at first? He shook his hand. He was a gentleman. My son was a gentleman."

However, web users are not exactly enthusiastic by this revelation. They have said it is understandable that Nipsey's mother will want to seek comfort by searching for answers in all sorts of places. But they warned that these psychics are just "actors" trying to make money. 

The Oluwo of Iwoland, Emeror Telu has said 'Oduduwa' was never last born of any Igbo Prince saying, "place the two cultures side by side in greetings, communication, language, clothing, idols, dancing, wedding etc,one needs no teacher to tell you there are clear distinction.

 We only must respect the nation that binds us together, Nigeria" He said this in a bid to lay the controversy of Yoruba-Igbo ties to rest, Oluwo of Iwoland said the founding father of Yoruba, Oduduwa was never last born to the Igbos prince as claimed by Ohaneze Indigbo.

 Oluwo described the claim as unfounded, false and misleading to the stalwarts of history, beseeching Igbo community to further their research on the adventure of their own Odudunwa rather than demeaning the status of Yoruba rallying point."Yoruba nation was founded by Oduduwa.

Oduduwa brought the first civilization which is the crown. Oduduwa demonstrated an unequalled leadership, shrewd, peculiar, unparalleled, unmatched, quintessential and different, served his people and became rallying point for his services to humanity.

He gave us the best tradition, so respectful and obedience. Yoruba culture is rich, very beautiful and unblemished emanated from Oduduwa".

"History is rich, necessary and must always be objective because it is a foundation to the future. Worldwide, Yoruba land is the source of every natural crowns. Our crowns are spirit, divinely ordained and sacred. It was brought by Oduduwa.

And we owe a duty as his progenitors to defend everything about him"."The fact that Odudunwa means last born in Igbo language does not made anyone bearing similar name Igbo born. Ours was Oduduwa meaning " He came out black".O-He, Dudu-black, Wa-Came Oduduwa was an immortal symbol of merit. Oduduwa was never a subject to anybody in West Africa. Our own Oduduwa was one different from your own Odudunwa meaning last born. We have countless last born in Yoruba called "Abikanhin".

There may be many Odudunwa but only one Oduduwa" "Oduduwa was the source of every natural crowns worldwide. He has been in existence even before traditional governance was extended to the Igbos. How then can you be a prince to what you preceeded?" Oluwo queried.
Rahma Indimi shares how She is fighting Poverty & Inequality as she Covers Pleasures Magazines May/June IssueInfusing the human element: Rahma Indimi, a Director at Oriental Energy Resources and Founder of Yakolo Indimi Foundation, headlines Pleasures Magazine’s May/June issue. This edition of the Pan-African Entrepreneurial and Luxury magazine, Pleasures Magazine, is dedicated to celebrating Rahma Indimi who is fighting poverty and inequality through the effortlessness of highly skilled volunteers and collaborative partnerships through her NGO, Yakolo Indimi Foundation, by empowering women and youths through education, skill acquisition, micro enterprises, farming, enforcement of their human rights, financial aid and psycho-social interventions.Speaking with Pleasures Magazine, Rahma Indimi who is driven by an unwavering passion and determination to support the less privilege gave an insight into how she is giving succour and saving the lives of thousands of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the North-East via her foundation, aptly titled; Rahma Indimi: A Look at The Thousands of Lives saved and improved by her Yakolo Indimi Foundation.  On the making of the NGO, Yakolo Indimi Foundation, Rahma said“I grew up watching the generosity of my father, Dr. Muhammadu Indimi, OFR. He is always trying to solve problems for people. He speaks often about poverty and how it can be diminished. He instilled in us the awareness of heartbreaking issues in society. Like every parent, he worked hard to make his family comfortable. But he taught us to adapt to different situations. So, the idea of the Yakolo Indimi Foundation was born from lessons shared by my father. I saw the smiles on the faces of those helped by my daddy. I wanted to be like him, helping people. Before Yakolo Indimi Foundation was created, my team and I had been investing in humanitarian activities. Empowering people is one of my greatest motivations. It brings immense happiness and peace in my heart.On why Yakolo Indimi Foundation seem to be focusing on the northeast geo-political zone“Presently, the impact of the insurgency in the North-East is overwhelming, particularly in Borno and Adamawa. The people need all the help they can get. Although the IDPs are in other states, the conditions in the North-East are dire. To make things worse, insecurity cuts off access to many parts of Borno and that makes it impossible to save thousands of children and families. In spite of the long distance, my team and I do not hesitate to go home again and again to help our people. For example, the Muhammadu Indimi Foundation created by my father developed homes for 100 households. The Yakolo Indimi Foundation reached out to the women and gave them sustainable means of earning revenue. Several IDPs have been given sewing machines and flour processing machines. They also received training as well as start-up finances. Little by little, all IDPs will be empowered. That is the vision. Periodically, the Foundation visits to conduct surveys on the needs of IDPs, in collaboration with the office on Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs, in the North-East. Additionally, the Yakolo Indimi Foundation recently started a food security project. We equip beneficiaries with modern farming skills and provide an environment to do so. Livelihood is restored when they can sell produce and keep their families nourished.”  Yakolo Indimi Foundation’s intervention in the health sectorThe Foundation collaborates with a medical team during its outreach. We support the team with medicine. The recent trend of increased pregnancies in the IDP camps was a concern. You could easily come across a woman with 20 children and you would see children roaming the streets. So, the Foundation sensitized the women on birth control. It was successful because some of the women showed interest. The health challenges in the North-East are overwhelming, but not insurmountable. We believe partnership would increase and accelerate impact.This issue also includes a special feature to celebrate Versace’s 40th anniversary of Iconic world of class and to celebrates this milestone, the magazine had an exclusive interview with the brand’s Vice President and its founder’s little sister, Donatella Versace who joined the company in the creative department in 1988 and there began her distinctive commitment and influence on the brand.

It's a sense of gratitude to God. God has blessed many people so much that the only way to express it is to share with all these children and those who have nots."Also speaking, Jonathan Samuel, Chairman, Omodayo Owotuga Foundation, declared that the foundation of charity and generosity to the people in need, was laid by Omodayo Owotuga himself when he was still alive, saying what the Foundation does now is an additional effort.  "He (Owotuga) had laid the foundation of kindness before he died. At Omodayo Owotuga Foundation, we give money to pay tuition fees of indigent students, we also pay for their exams like WAEC, GCE and JAMB. This we have been doing in addition to giving charities and gifts to orphanages since 2019."We have given scholarships to fund tuition fees and academics of those children that their parents are unable to pay for their schooling. We have trained lots of students through this scheme and some of the indigent students have even graduated today", Samuel said.Also, Agnes Mobolaji, the first child and daughter of late Omodayo Owotuga, said, "We grew up knowing my dad to be a free giver. We learnt the attribute from him to be kind, friendly and generous. We have been on this since 2009. Before now, we used to go to orphanages to give charities in his name. We also give scholarships to the indigent students at every anniversary of his death".  The post Nigeria's first hospital partners Late Most Supreme AP.
