Pakistan police arrest six for arranging wedding between 6 & 7year old boy & girl

Police have arrested six people accused of arranging the marriage of a seven-year-old boy and six-year-old girl in eastern Pakistan, officials said Saturday. The fathers of both children, the cleric performing the ceremony, and three witnesses were charged under the Child Marriage Restraint Act on Saturday after being arrested in Punjab province on Friday, senior police official Saifullah Khan told AFP.

They face six months imprisonment and/or a fine of 50,000 rupees ($500).
Local police chief Mehr Riaz Hussain said the accused have denied that the wedding took place, but police have it on video.
Pakistani lawmakers last month withdrew a proposal to impose harsher penalties on those who arrange child marriages after it was scuttled by a religious body which branded it "blasphemous" and against Islam.
The proposal, which would also have raised the legal age of marriages for females from 16 to 18, called for "rigorous" punishment of up to two years in prison for those who organise child marriages, still common in some parts of Pakistan.
The original law stipulates the age of marriage to be 16 for women and 18 for men but Pakistani religious scholars at the Council of Islamic Ideology, believe it is not in accordance with Islamic teachings.

They say there is no specific age limit for marriage in Sharia as an individual can marry when he or she reaches puberty and puberty cannot be defined by age. Rights activists strongly criticised the rejection of bill.

Trial begins for teen accused of murder over Air Jordans, victim's mother also blames Nike for son's death

It has been two years since a Houston man was killed over a pair of Air Jordan shoes. The trial for one of those accused of killing Joshua Woods is now underway. When Air Jordan shoes were released two years ago, Joshua Woods picked up a pair and that night, he was killed for those shoes by two teenagers.
Neal Bland's trial started yesterday. Before the trial started, Joshua Woods' family and friends gathered outside the courtroom to pray and and to ask for justice.

Woods' mother has started an organization called "Life over Fashion" to try to get makers of these shoes to have a much wider release of their products rather than limited releases in order to stop the overwhelming demand for Air Jordans that may drive some to violence.
"Nike, they have a responsibility in this, and they have to do something and if nothing happens we will see more cases like this, you will see more mothers and fathers like me," Dazie Williams says. "You will see more mothers and fathers like the accused killers, so we have to do something."
Woods' mother said she was able to contact Nike after her sons death but characterized it as more of a courtesy than anything else.

She did also say that Nike did not commit this crime.

Photos: Woman recounts how her cousin was kidnapped, brutally beaten and murdered

Late Ebere Helen Peters's security guard conspired with a gang of kidnappers to have her kidnapped in order to extort money from her husband. Unfortunately, the plan went awry...Below is what her cousin Oby Ndukwe wrote on Facebook:
"It was on a faithful day, January 19th when she was lured into rendering assistance to her security guard who claimed to be preparing for his wedding. He asked her to help him plan his wedding, claiming to have N200k.
While she had accepted to help, the guard asked that she followed him to the venue for the reception in order to sign a guarantor's form, in the event that in the course of the reception, something goes wrong with the facilities. And off they went to the nonexistent reception venue. Unknown to her, it was a trap. She was to be used as a people bait to force her husband to part with some money. She had been kidnapped!
The wicked guard and his five man gang tortured her as she fought hard to resist being tied up. They so beat her that when she became weak, they got her tied up and called in an elderly untrained nurse to inject with some kind of anaesthesia. From the forced sleep, to a forced death. Death so cheap!
The assailants eventually took her to the hospital, hoping that she was not dead. But, truly, she was dead. Then the hospital management arrested the quack nurse and the guard. The rest is story.
She rose from abject poverty to wealth From the slums of Lagos to the high brow Gowon Estate in Lagos. Death so cruel. A husband, a mother, four children and siblings awaiting her return. But she died while fasting. She died while showing kindness.
Oh Death! why so cruel? Eby, Good night until we meet to part no more. May you find rest in the bosom of the Lord"

Brain damaged violinist makes music for first time in 27 years with mind-reading technology

Violinist Rosemary Johnson has spent the last 27 years coming to terms with the reality she would never make music again, following a devastating car crash. A member of the Welsh National Opera Orchestra she was destined to become a world class musician before the road accident in 1988, which left her in a coma for seven months.

Rosemary at 19
Miss Johnson suffered a devastating head injury, robbing her of speech and movement which meant she could only pick out a few chords on the piano with the help of her mother Mary.

But now, thanks to cutting edge technology, she is creating music again, using just the power of her mind.

In an extraordinary 10-year project led by the Plymouth University and the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability in London, her brain has been wired up to a computer using Brain Computer Music Interfacing software.

By focusing on different coloured lights on a computer screen she can select notes and phrases to be played and alter a composition as it is performed by live musicians. The intensity of her mental focus can even change the volume and speed of the piece.

It is the first time Miss Johnson, 50, has been able to create music in decades and has been an emotional experience for the her, and the scientists involved in the programme.


“It was really very moving,” said Professor Eduardo Miranda, Composer and Director of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research at Plymouth University.
“The first time we tried with Rosemary we were in tears. We could feel the joy coming from her at being able to make music. It was perfect because she can read music very well and make a very informed choice.
“The great achievement of this project is that it is possible to perform music without being able to actually move. She is essentially controlling another musician to play it for her.  “It’s not yet possible to read thoughts but we can train people to use brain signals to control things.”
“Music is really her only motivation,” she said. “I take her to the grand piano in the hospital and she can only really play a few chords, but that was the only time she shows any interest. She doesn’t really enjoy anything else.
“But this has been so good for her. I can tell she has really enjoyed it. When she performed I went to the hospital and that is the first time I have heard her make music, other than the piano chords for a long, long time.”

Miss Johnson’s mother Mary, 80, of Hounslow, West London said the project had given her daughter new hope.

18yr old girl kills her hair stylist, his girlfriend & their unborn child over weave dispute

18 year old Shelby Isaacs (pictured left) has been arrested for allegedly killing her hair stylist Eddie Tate Jr., 38, and his girlfriend, Edwina Thomas, 33 (right). Edwina was heavily pregnant when she was killed. The police is charging Shelby with three counts of first-degree murder.

According to authorities, the couple was sitting in the car when Shelby approached them and after arguing over a weave, she opened fire, killing Eddie on the spot. Edwina was rushed to the hospital but she and her baby died...


Edwin was the co-owner of a hair extensions, hair and wigs business called VirginHair4US.com and Shelby was a customer. She reportedly bought a weave she wasn't satisfied with. She approached Edwin for a refund or new hair and when Edwin refused, she went to find a gun.

According to police, the weave in dispute was not up to $100. Four lives wasted over a weave, sad!

Blackface is really a loose canon these days, attacking WizKid, 2face, P-Square and now directing his ammunition at 2face’s manager, Efe Omoregbe. This comes a few days after Efe penned down an open letter stating categorically that 2face didn’t steal any song from former band mate, Blackface and went further to say that the whole circus is just a publicity stunt. See his full letter here: “When my attention was drawn to Blackface’s twitter rant about the ‘theft’ of his songs by his ex-band mate 2Baba, my initial reaction was to ignore what I perceived as an obvious marketing gimmick for his new single. “The reaction from a vast majority of people on social media who read about the allegations was evidence that the ploy had backfired. “Blackface’s press interviews since the twitter rant has made it necessary for me to present the flip side and set the records straight. 1. 2Baba and Blackface do have a bunch of songs they co-wrote in their days as Plantashun Boiz. 2. Both artistes have collectively and individually recorded and commercially released materials from this collection. 3. 2Baba has always given Blackface (Austin Ahmedu) co-writing credit every time he recorded any song that has Blackface’s input – No matter how minimal. 4. Blackface has neither given 2Baba (Innocent Idibia) co-writing credit nor sought ‘permission’ to record any of the materials they jointly authored. 5. Blackface has earned royalties off his shared publishing rights for about a decade. 6. A huge chunk of income he has made derives from royalties earned by the commercial exploitation of the successesful materials performed/recorded by 2Baba. 7. 2Baba did not and couldn’t have stolen ‘Let Somebody Love You’ from Blackface. The song was released about 2 years ago. Blackface complained about his name being misspelt on the CD sleeve and we personally apologised to him. 8. Yes. Blackface contributed to the writing of the first verse of the song. The second verse was entirely 2Baba. Bridget Kelly wrote her verse and Efe Omorogbe wrote the outro verse. 9. Efe Omorogbe is not 2Baba’s manager on ‘Let Somebody Love You’ but a co-writer. 10. The outro verse was lifted from the song ‘How?’ written in 1997 and recorded in 1999 at Dolphin studios, Surulere. Blackface didn’t write that bit. Couldn’t have written that bit. Blackface cannot in 2016, touch Efe Omorogbe’s writing from 1997. 11. Blackface should be honoured to have shared co-writing credit with 2Baba. I am. For each and every song we have collaborated on. 12. Blackface should be grateful 2Baba recorded their co-authored materials to ensure a lifetime of royalty income for him. 12. Blackface should record and release his own version of ‘Let Somebody Love You’ and keep 100% publishing on that version. Oops! 2Baba will still be entitled to a share. 13. Blackface is not in 2Baba’s league as a songwriter. Their post-Plantashun Boiz’ catalogs speak for themselves. 14. Blackface should go to court to seek redress if he indeed believes he has a case. 15. Blackface should know that nobody ever secured a court judgement via a twitter rant or media tour. 17. Blackface must have realised by now that the unfortunate tirade has not made “Killa” a hit. At least, not at the moment. We grind our way to the results we seek bro. Just HARDwork. No short cuts! Blackface in response took to his instagram to say that he did in fact write 2face’s song with Bridget Kelly, and also gave him permission to record his global hit, African Queen.
