Patience Ozokwor Speaks On Her Only Regret

Patience Ozokwor has spoken about her only regret in life saying she wasn't allowed to marry the man of her choice. The veteran actor stated this in an interview with Punchng ans also revealed she had attempted to remarry when she lost her husband but her children kicked….

Since the death of your husband, have you ever considered remarrying?

Yes. There was a time I wanted to remarry but my children said no. They are all grown now. They said if they were young, they wouldn’t have objected. Now that they are grown, they say they will be my husband and they have been trying. The only thing they don’t do is go to bed with me (laughs). They said that their friends would laugh at them that their mother abandoned them, but I didn’t see it that way. It really brought problems. I wanted to remarry but my sister and other relations came and said that I should concede to them and I accepted but with the condition that they would also listen to me anytime I tell them to stop being friends with any of their friends that I don’t like and they agreed. So we have been managing one another.

Do you have any regrets in life?

The only regret I have in life is that I wasn’t allowed to marry the man of my choice. That is it but I was able to cope. I had suitors, I was going to choose one among them but my parents said that I would marry their choice. If they had allowed me, I would have loved to make my choice.

You got married early in life following your parents’ bidding. Was it that you were betrothed to him?

No, I wasn’t betrothed to him, but my mother was a kind of woman that always liked to punish any child that misbehaved publicly. You know all those Christian mothers that would be in the disciplinary section to punish children. So, she didn’t want her child to come out of secondary school and not get married because she was afraid you could bring her to where she had been punishing people. So she insisted I must get married. I said okay but I had a suitor. But she said no. I didn’t know what to do because I had put all my eggs in one basket; he was in the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. I was waiting to go to school so that I would marry him but my mother wouldn’t wait. So I had to obey her. There was a big fight but in our days, you would not be the one to say I will marry this person; it was your parents that would have the final say in your marriage, so I had to give up.

How would you describe your childhood? Were you stubborn?

I was not stubborn and I was not quiet. It was all play, play, play. But I was loved by so many people around.

At the time you ventured into acting, what were your parents’ reactions?

Only my father was still around and he was excited seeing me in a movie. Like my husband too, he would say (to our children), come and play your mother’s film for us to watch. They enjoy my movies. My immediate younger brother, who is in the US, will say that I have found my talent and that is why it has swallowed me.

Mike Tyson Has A Word For Conor Mcgregor… Get Asses Kicked...

Mike Tyson says Conor McGregor needs to quit talkin' UFC ownership and focus on what made him a superstar to begin with ... telling TMZ Sports the fighter should do just that -- FIGHT!!!

Conor demanded a piece of the UFC in a rant at a Chicago bar last week following up on what he's been saying for YEARS. "Give me my rightful shares in the UFC company. That’s all I ask," Conor said at the time.

Tyson says Conor's WRONG because ownership is a whole different kind of game and Mike seems to think McGregor should get his money the old fashioned way -- by just kicking asses.

But, with Conor's popularity -- he's headlined the top 3 highest-selling UFC events ever and might not just want to let go of the ownership thing that easy, even with Mike’s advise.

On Friday night's double Wahala reunion show, Cee-C alleged that Alex had
s#x with Tobi in her hotel room.

Her words: The first thing Nina told me on the plane (on their way to Nigeria) was that Alex and Tobi had s#x in the hotel room. I can't forget that. And I was laughing so loud. Why was I laughing so loud. It was because this guy said they were besties in the house. So I am surprised, what's happening here. All these negativity, why is it happening to me. Which should I focus on. Is it that they want the negativity coming to Nigeria or What Nina just told me now.
So I was just like, it's not any of my business, I was just laughing so loud''.

Alex then broke down in tears and walked out of the Reunion show.

Cardi B Sues Bloggers Over Drugs, Herpes Claims

Cardi B is suing bloggers for making some outrageous claims, including saying Cardi's a prostitute who has herpes.

Cardi filed the lawsuit against Latasha K -- who has a blog called unWinewithTashaK. She's pissed about 23 videos Tasha's posted over the last 14 months.

According to the suit, Tasha posted a video last April saying Cardi's baby might be born with intellectual disabilities.

The inference seems to be Cardi was doing drugs that would harm then-unborn Kulture.

She's also suing Starmarie Ebony Jones, who, according to the suit, posted a video in September accusing Cardi of doing Molly, cocaine and engaging in prostitution.

Jones allegedly says of Cardi, "Just a Grammy nominated prostitute running around spreading her herpes."

R. Kelly: Joycelyn Savage & Parents Disagree Over Meeting Point

Kelly's team is having a hard time arranging a meeting between Joycelyn Savage and her parents,  because both sides can't agree on a location.

R. Kelly's rep, Darrell Johnson, tells TMZ ... Joycelyn is not opposed to meeting with her mom and dad, but she only wants to meet them in Chicago. However, the Savage family wants to meet Joycelyn at her grandmother's home -- which is outside the Windy City,  because Grandma's battling cancer.

The Savages have made it clear from the beginning ... they want to meet in a neutral location outside of Chicago.

So, both sides remain at a standstill ... even though it's been two weeks since R. Kelly's team agreed to set up a meeting between Joycelyn and her fam.

Whenever the meeting goes down, the Savage family plans to bring a psychologist with them to evaluate their daughter.

Joycelyn is alleged to be one of Kelly's "sex slaves" and the Savages have been doing everything they can to set up a face-to-face meeting with her.

Ministers Seriously Lobbying To Return In Buhari's 2nd Term

As the first four-year term of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari winds to a close, members of his cabinet have commenced intense lobbying of critical stakeholders in a bid to retain their positions as ministers when the President reconstitutes his cabinet for his second term.

People believed to have the ears of the President, those popularly referred to as members of the cabal, or those who are believed to have the ability to injure any current or potential appointee in the public space or behind closed doors, are daily being bombarded with requests to intercede.

Not only are some of the ministers lobbying to remain, they are also pulling all the strings to ensure that they retain their juicy positions in the cabinet. With Buhari’s recent declaration that he would be taking tough decisions in the new dispensation and his claim that corrupt and incompetent people would not have a place in the new all-inclusive cabinet, most of the ministers are said to have become jittery as they fear that they might not have done enough to merit retaining their positions or portfolios.

It was also gathered that unlike in 2015, the constitution of President Buhari’s cabinet this time around will be swift, Sentry reports.

Though some ministers, particularly those that President Buhari is believed to have a soft spot for, are said to be confident that they will retain their places in the new cabinet, they are nonetheless “reaching out.”

My Father's Wife Used Charms To Make Me An Armed Robber – Suspect Cries Out

Nurudeen Akorede, a 24-year-old technician turned robber, has blamed his ordeal on the spiritual influence by his stepmother. The father of two, who resides in the Alakuko area of Lagos, said he had lived decently until 2017 when his stepmother’s spell started manifesting negatively in his life.

He said he started by smoking, through which he met some men who introduced him to a robbery gang, terrorising the Aboru area of the state and its environs.

City Round learnt that Akorede and other members of his gang had raided houses in the community in January 2019, dispossessing residents of their valuables, including laptops, phones and cash.

Reportedly wielding guns and cutlasses, the bandits operated freely from one house to another, inflicting injuries on victims who refused to “cooperate.”

In the wake of the robbery attack, residents lived in fear as the robbers reportedly vowed to return to the community.

Our correspondent learnt that operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team were detailed to track down the gang after the community alerted the police to the incident.

The effort of the detectives paid off recently when the suspects were rounded up at different parts of the state.

Apart from Akorede, other members of the gang arrested by the police are Kunle Akerele, Ayuba Aransi, Adewale Toyin, Oluwatosin Adeyemi and Tunde Yusuf.

Two locally-made guns, 60 mobile phones and 30 laptops were reportedly recovered from the suspects.

Speaking to City Round during the week, Akorede said his life made an about-face after his parents separated and his father remarried.

The native of Abeokuta in Ogun State claimed that his father’s new wife afflicted him with spiritual problems that made him to become an armed robber.

He said, “I fix aluminium doors and windows before I joined the robbery gang. My trouble started when my parents separated. I was in secondary school when they separated and my mother took me with her while my younger brother was with my father. After I finished from secondary school education, I went to learn how to fix aluminium doors and windows. My father’s new wife started tormenting me spiritually. She made my younger brother to go insane and she also poisoned my father.

“She then went after me. I started smoking in 2017. I used to attend church services and I was warned by a prophet to stop the habit. The prophet said my enemy was planning to ruin my life. One day, I went to visit my girlfriend at Egbatedo, Alakuko where I met people smoking Indian hemp. I met Kunle (Akerele), who introduced me to the robbery gang. I stopped going to church and shop. Aside from fixing aluminium doors and windows, I am a boxer. People knew I was skillful but my father’s wife was not happy about it. That was why she charmed me and turned my life into a mess.”

Akorede said he participated in four operations with the gang, including the raid on houses in Aboru – the last he was involved in before his arrest.

He said his role was to stay outside and watch out for policemen, noting that he got N20,000 share from their last operation.

He stated, “My gang members would steal huge amounts of money from our victims and give me peanuts. They said I should buy my own gun if I wanted to get bigger shares from our loot. I regret getting myself into this mess, but my predicament started because my father married another wife.”

Akerele, 29, who hails from Ekiti State, said he went into crime because of joblessness. He said Akorede initiated the robbery, adding that he (Akerele) bought a gun for N20,000.

He said, “Akorede linked me up with one Peter who took us to the areas where we robbed people. I approached one Yusuf, who lives in my area, and gave him N20,000 to buy me a gun. One of our members called Tunde also has a gun. He has not been arrested.

“I stole jewellery at gunpoint in Aboru and sold it for N400,000. It was the receiver of some of the laptops and phones that I stole who brought policemen to my house to arrest me.”

Yusuf, 33, said he joined the gang after he was sacked at a clubhouse in Ikeja, where he worked as a barman.

The indigene of Ilorin, Kwara State, admitted that he helped Akerele buy the gun he used for operations.

He said, “I bought two locally-made guns from a security guard for N20,000. I gave them to Kunle (Akerele) and Tunde and they started giving me money after each operation. I also helped them to sell the phones and laptops they collected from their victims.”

Aransi, a cobbler with two children, stated that he got N35,000 share from the proceeds of the two operations he participated in.

He said, “I am from Oyo State, but I reside in Aboru. I joined the gang in January 2019 through a friend called Rasheed. I went with the gang to rob six houses in Aboru. During the operation, Peter (a member at large) chopped off the fingers of one of the victims.”

One of the receivers of the items stolen by the gang, Adewale Toyin, was also arrested by the police.

The 42-year-old man from Esan, Edo State, stated that he had received about 60 phones from the suspects so far.

He said, “I repair laptops and phones at Computer Village, Ikeja. I didn’t know that the phones were stolen. I could buy a laptop from them at the rate of N25,000 or N30,000 and resell it for N50,000 or N60,000.”

Here's How PDP Headquarters React To Adeleke's Victory

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has hailed the verdict of the Osun State Governorship Election Tribunal, which upheld the victory of its candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke. It described the judgment as a victory for democracy and triumph of the will of the people.

The main opposition party said the judgment was a clear indicator that those who set out to destroy the nation’s democracy can never triumph, and that no matter how evil and injustice appear to thrive, the truth must always prevail at the end of the day.

In a statement issued by the spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, yesterday, the party said Nigerians have accepted democracy as a way of life and a form of government that suits the multi-plurality of the nation.

The statement said: “The spontaneous jubilation that greeted this judgment is therefore a direct indication that it is in consonant with the wishes and aspiration of Nigerians across the board.

“For those who have been desperate to destroy our democracy, this judgment has proven to them that their shenanigans will always come to no avail.

“The PDP commends the judiciary for standing upright in the defence of democracy and for ensuring that those involved in the rapacious desecration of our democratic norms will never succeed.

“This verdict, which reverberates across our nation, points to the fact that the truth will always prevail and that our party, the PDP, will recover all our stolen mandates in the 2019 general elections, particularly the Presidential mandate, which Nigerians freely gave to our candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

“Furthermore, all our candidates who have already won their elections, but whose victories are being manipulated by anti-democratic forces, must take solace in the words of the Osun election petition panel, that once valid votes have been declared and a winner emerges by majority of votes, a rerun is illegal.

“The PDP congratulates Senator Adeleke, the good people of Osun State as well as all lovers of democracy across our country for the triumph of justice over impunity, abuse of electoral processes and unfettered political rascality.”
