Friends Set Up Hiding Camera To Catch Thief Stealing Flowers From Family Grave

November 16, 2018 0 Comments

This is the sickening moment a man was caught stealing flowers from a family grave after friends set up a hidden camera when tributes started disappearing.

Friends and relatives of Steve and Pat Russell who are buried at the grave along with their two young daughters noticed the flowers were going missing at the Eastern Cemetery in Hull.

They installed a hidden camera in a nearby tree to catch the perpetrator in the act and say the thief has been stealing from the grave every week for seven months. One of the daughters, Kerry, passed away at the age of 12 after collapsing at school 31 years ago with a heart condition.

Kirsty suffered from the same condition and died in 1996 at the age of 18.

Four years’ ago, Patricia died after suffering a heart attack and her husband passed away a year later.

They had their ashes scattered by a rose bush beside their daughters' grave at the Hull cemetery.

Allan Hiley, 73, from Halifax, West Yorkshire, was 'horrified' when he was told by friends that someone was taking the flowers from their grave.

He said: 'It's the grave of my auntie and uncle and their two daughters. I come over every now and again to visit the grave and friends who knew them.

'They rang me up a while ago to tell me someone was taking the flowers and decorations. I was horrified.

'The love that family had between them was incredible and the fact that someone could be doing that to their grave is a farce.

Meet Couple who can't smile due to RARE Condition

The Man and the woman pictured above who cannot smile because of a rare condition have fallen in love after meeting on Social Media. Because of Moebius syndrome, Alex Barker and Erin Smith may not thrilled to get married


The Rare condition causes paralysis of the cranial nerves, meaning sufferers cannot make any facial expressions. But the disease is what brought Mr Barker, 45 from Coventry and his 38-year-old Ms Smith, from North Carolina, together to be husband and wife

They started loving each other after meeting on a social media site for people with Moebius syndrome, and after just four dates, they got engaged. Ms Smith said: ‘At first, I would never have thought that I would ever fall in love with someone that was born with the same thing I was.

‘But I mean it’s not just the Moebius, we have a lot of other things in common too. ‘It is so nice to have someone that understands me for me. I love his British accent. It makes me melt. It does it just gives me chills.’

The couple, whose speech is also affected, have to be creative when expressing their feelings due to the fact they’re unable to smile.


Mr Barker added: ‘I can tell when Erin is happy because she always puts her head on one side and goes “ooh,” and I think although we can’t show facial expression, we know each other’s mannerisms, so when we’re upset or when we’re frustrated or whatever, there is a lot of nonverbal communication that goes on.

‘I think the eyes tell a lot too, even not just Alex, but my family and friends have always said that they can look in my eyes and I smile with my eyes, they know I am happy.’

Mr Barker revealed he was severely bullied when he was younger and he was unable to get a girlfriend. He said he still struggled when he met new people.


Mr Barker added: ‘If I meet people for the first time they might smile at me in greeting and then they are wondering why is he being rude? ‘Why is he not smiling back? And I’m like I’m not smiling back because I actually can’t… I actually can’t do it.’

Mr Barker said it had found it difficult to meet a partner before he found Ms Smith because not being able to smile was a ‘relationship killer’.

The two lovebirds have spoken to a specialist about having children and were told their offspring would not necessarily have Moebius and it would depend on the makeup of their genes.


But for now they are just enjoying being together. Mr Barker said: ‘Just having Erin’s hand in my hand, just means the world. It means we don’t have to show any facial expression.

And I know when Erin is looking at me that there is a smile inside somewhere.’ Moebius syndrome is very rare, with only around 250 people with it in the UK and less than 1,000 worldwide. The couple will feature on Body Bizarre on Saturday at 10pm on TLC UK.

Atiku reveals the formation of Boko Haram and talks about Nnamdi Kanu

November 16, 2018 0 Comments

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar said Boko Haram was formed by youngsters, who were left by politicians.


PDP's presidential candidate said this in a conversation with The Africa Report, while explaining how he would fight the cult.

"I know how Boko Haram came into being. They were broadcasts of political gangsters. The politicians used these Boko Haram boys to win elections, so abandoned them, and then they did not find work.


"It was the same with Niger Delta. In 1998 I saw it myself and warned people.

"It will be a multi-faceted approach, which will involve negotiations. This will involve military action," he said.

At the constant clashes between shepherds / farmers and animal husbandry, Atiku grazing reserves said the solution.


"In each northern province we had a grass area. During the season, the cattle are on the reserves.

"When the grasses have grown green, it goes without the season that cattle move to the areas where they were grown so that the grass can grow grassland. These pastures have been abandoned over the years.

As regards the fate of Biafra's native boss (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and former security adviser Sambo Dasuki Atiku stressed that the rule of law should be respected.

His words: "I do not want to be individualistic in this matter. I reject any illegal detention, any detention, which is not based on respect for law and order.

"Dasuki is illegally detained. Only a court will say if he owes or not."

On calls for secession of some southeastern countries, Atiku referred to "a conference to discuss reconstruction"

"I do not think part of this country will leave. All they want is justice, justice and justice," he added.

Chinese Government detains Catholic bishop

November 16, 2018 0 Comments

The Chinese authorities have Arrested a Catholic Bishop Pietro Shao Zhumin for resisting demands to join China’s Communist Party-controlled church body.

Catholic news service reveals that Bishop Zhumin’s detention was against recent moves by Beijing and the Holy See toward reconciliation.


Asia News reported that the bishop dropped out of sight several days ago, but gave no details other than saying he had been subjected to “dozens of days of indoctrination as in the times of the Cultural Revolution,” a reference to Mao Zedong’s radical 1966-76 attack on traditional Chinese culture, religion and the intelligentsia.


Shao was appointed by the pope in 2016 and posted to the southeastern city of Wenzhou, which has a large Christian community.

Officials reached the local religious affairs bureau, a department regulating the Catholic church and police headquarters Friday by phone, but they said they had no knowledge of Shao’s situation and refused to give their names.

Shao’s disappearance follows a breakthrough agreement to give Chinese authority a say over the appointment of bishops that critics called a cave-in to the ruling party just as it is waging a sweeping crackdown on religion.

Others characterised it as an imperfect but much-needed step toward uniting Catholics in the world’s most populous country.

The Vatican has long hoped to bring together China’s 12 million Catholics who are divided between those worshipping in state-sanctioned churches and the underground priests and parishioners loyal to the pope, who are frequently detained and harassed.

Details of the September agreement haven’t been released, although analysts say the Vatican will retain the power to put forward candidates while Beijing will likely have the right to refuse them.


Such moves are seen as a concession on the Vatican’s part in the face of Beijing’s assertion that it would not allow “foreign forces” to govern the country’s faith groups.

Under president and Communist Party leader Xi Jinping, the authorities have in recent months cracked down heavily on Protestants, Catholics, Muslims and Buddhists in the name of national security and the “Sinosization” of religion.

In addition the twins are the second and third best graduating male students in their faculty.

Labour to go on strike next Month

November 15, 2018 0 Comments
The Organized Labour has given the Federal Government December deadline to commence payment of the N30,000 new national minimum wage to Nigerian workers.

This is even as feelers emerged that labour may resume its suspended nationwide strike in the next two weeks should the government continue to foot drag on the implementation of the report of the Tripartite Committee on Minimum Wage.

Besides, Labour warned that any reduction in the N30,000 agreed as contained in the committee’s report to President Muhammadu Buhari or any further delay in its passage would lead to devastating consequences.

The President of Trade Union Congress (TUC), Bobboi Bala Kaigama and the Secretary General of the Association of Senior Civil Servant of Nigeria (ASCSN), Bashir Alade Lawal, gave the warning at the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja yesterday.

They both warned that labour would not accept anything less than the N30,000 agreed by the Committee, as Nigerian workers patiently await President Buhari to forward an Executive Bill to the National Assembly for passage into law.

Kaigama stressed the urgent need to fast-track the implementation of the newly agreed national minimum wage.


Specifically, he said the expectation of labour is that the full implementation of the N30,000 would not exceed December.

Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige was not available for comment last night.

His mobile phone indicated it was switched off, while his Chief Press Secretary could not also be reached.

But the Deputy Director of Press in the ministry, Mr Samuel Olowookere said he could not comment on the threat by Labour.

“I cannot comment on what I don’t know, I can only speak on what I know with the permission to do so. All I know, which is known to everybody, is that the ministry has concluded its work on the minimum wage and my ‘Oga’ has submitted the report to the president. That is all I can say,” he said.

Though Kaigama stated that he would not preempt President Buhari that the N30,000 agreed through the process of tripartite negotiation could be reduced, he warned that the consequences of reducing or delaying its implementation would be very devastating.

“The Federal Government is advised to avoid any action that can delay or truncate the process of enacting the new Minimum Wage Act as the consequences of allowing that to happen can be very devastating.

“It is worthy of note that the single most important issue agitating the mind of an average Nigerian worker today is that of the new national minimum wage, the report of which was presented to Mr. President on Tuesday 6th November, 2018. It is apt to state that against all odds, the tripartite committee that negotiated the new minimum wage was able to scale all hurdles and agreed to the sum of N30,000 as the new minimum wage for the country.


“It is on this premise that I strongly want to appeal to the Federal Government to fast-track the process of enacting the new national minimum wage into law.

“Our expectation is that the government should be able to complete the entire process before the end of this year so that workers who have waited for so long can begin to enjoy a new lease on life provided by the newly agreed minimum wage.”

The TUC president also regretted that the core civil service, which is the engine room of government, is the least paid in the public service.

According to him, other segments have had their emoluments beefed up over the years.

Kaigama explained that even though civil servants, for instance, possess the same qualifications and experience as their counterparts in the parastatals and agencies, “yet, the salaries of these other employees are, in most cases, three times more than that of officers in the core ministries.”

The labour leader added: “This situation has been made worse by the fact that since 2010 when salary relativity was carried out in the core civil service, no salary increment has been granted to civil servants except for the N900 monthly that was added to the emoluments of senior officers across board after N18,000 was approved as the national minimum wage in 2011.”


Lawal said they were holding President Buhari to his words that he would send the report submitted to him to the National Assembly.

“The way we interpret the president speech is that he said he is going to forward Executive Bill to the National Assembly, and on that we stand. We are not going to accept five kobo drop on that N30,000; we are not going to accept it. We are not going to accept anything less that N30,000. Like I said earlier on, we have mobilised already, we only suspended (the strike). So, we will pick off from where we left. It is not going to be a difficult thing,” he said.
