Nigerian doctor suspended from practicing in the UK for making love advances towards a patient

A Nigerian doctor and father-of-two has been suspended from practicing in Britain for 12 months after he was found guilty of misconduct. 40-year-old Chris Uzoh got a patient's number from her medical records and began to send her texts and flowers but this did not go down well with the patient.

He began texting the patient only 30 minutes after her appointment with him ended.

 This started in March last year and continued until May. She warned him to stop pestering her yet he refused so she reported him to his colleagues at the Murdishaw Health Centre in Runcorn.

His very first text to her, only minutes after her appointment, read: "Sorry for this text message but I saw you and liked you and thought we could go on a date in the future."

Another of his messages to her, read: "I am single and looking for a serious relationship and not intending to mess about."

In another instance, he left her a voice mail saying he wanted to hear her voice before he went to work.

"I’ve been feeling like a schoolboy meeting a girl he fancied for the first time. I haven’t felt this way in a while," Dr. Uzoh sent the patient in another message.

He went from sending her texts to sending cards and flowers at her home. Accompanying the flower was a message that read:

"I wonder how else I would have met you if not this way. My heart is pure, I care, I hope it would be possible to make you mine someday."

The patient became bothered after she got the message and worried that he knew her address so she warned him to stop. In a text to him, the patient wrote:

“As flattered as I was at the time, it all got too much too quickly. I feel you went too far with getting my address without my permission and it scared me a little and the thought of someone getting it so easily when I have put my trust in doctors is unnerving. Thank you for the flowers; but I would appreciate it if you didn’t do that again.”

When the patient told the doctor that he was bothering her and she wanted him to stop, he sent her another message, saying: "I was trying to be romantic – I did not mean to be creepy. I was excited about you."

He went on to try to sell himself to her in another text by listing all his achievements.

He wrote: "How is it possible that a good looking guy who is a doctor, who has a job with huge earning potential, who was the best graduating doctor in his medical school, who started out as a urological surgeon with several well-cited scientific publications, who thinks you beautiful and special, who wants you – and you wouldn’t give him a chance? I’ve been in a Toronto and I couldn’t stop thinking about you."

The patient sent another message, warning him firmly. She wrote: “You’re being too full on — I’ve only met you once and I was your patient!”

Dr. Uzoh was eventually reported to the General Medical Council after the patient reported to his colleagues. At the hearing, the woman told the panel:

“I was really shocked to get that initial message from him because I trusted him as a doctor. If I got that message now, there is no way I would respond. I was in a difficult position, particularly at that point; so, seeing him taking an interest was a nice thing. The next morning, I woke up and there was a further text message and voicemail message. I remember I was doing my makeup and getting ready for work and I saw that he was calling but I didn’t want to pick up. He left a message saying: ‘Hi, I just wanted to hear your voice before I start my day’.

“Everyday I looked at my phone, there was something from him, whether it be a text message, missed call or a voicemail message. As soon as I knew the flowers had been sent, I knew that they would be from Dr. Uzoh — there weren’t many people who knew my address at the time. I felt sick because I live on my own and nobody knew my address apart from my family and I was scared because he had got my records, so what was to say he wouldn’t turn up at my door. That feeling lasted several months. It wasn’t long after that I text him to tell him not to contact me; but then, five months later, he contacted me again."

Uzoh was not at the hearing, but he filed a written submission claiming his intentions towards the woman were ‘noble.’

He wrote: “My intention was not to prey on the patient or the patient’s vulnerability. I have always been professional toward my patients and never had any issues with NHS England or the GMC. I regret my actions and I apologise for all the stress this may have caused the patient.”

Uzoh was banned from practicing for a while and has now left the UK to Toronto where he now works.

Woman marries train station she's loved for 36 years, says it loves her too (video)

A 45-year-old woman has married a train station she has been in love with since she was 9-years-old. Carol Santa Fe, claims she is so in love with the Santa Fe train station in California - has been for36 years - and that they have sex mentally. She even changed her last name to the name of the train station.

Carol is a volunteer support worker from San Diego. Every day, she takes a 45-minute bus ride to the station to spend time with the building, which she calls Daidra. Carol's marriage to the train station isn't legally binding but that singular fact did not dampen her wedding day as she said it was the happiest day of their lives. The wedding held in 2015 and last Christmas she celebrated the one year. Anniversary.

Carol identifies herself as an objectum sexual - a person who is sexually attracted to inanimate objects and structures. She did not discover there was a name for her kind of attraction until she searched online, typing the search words; "I am in love with a building."

Carol said: "I am married to the Santa Fe train station - her name is Daidra. We didn't start a relationship until 2011 but I had been in love with the station since I was a young girl. When we got married, I stood there and I told her that I take it as my partner. It was the happiest day of our lives. I take a 445-minutebus ride every night to see the station."

Carol can sometimes be seen touching a part of the station and leaning against it while talking to it.  During this time, she gets to have mental sex with the station and gets turned on when she hears the train engines rev.

She added: "There is a private bit where two walls meet, I go there to touch her, which I do by leaning against her with my clothes on. When I'm touching her, I feel as though it actually holds me and kisses me. I don't have physical sex with the station in public, I want to be respectful. I wouldn't do that with a human in public so why would I do it in this case. I do have sex with Daidra in my mind when I stand there. I especially like when I hear the trains rev up their engines - it turns me on."

Carol has only been in love with a real human once in her life and their relationship lasted for 18 months but after it broke up, she concentrated on dating the train station knowing it would never leave her.

Carol added: "I love her so much, she is so romantic. We first consummated our love a few years ago when I felt the wall behind me, and I felt this energy. I came close to an orgasm and I was scared I'd get caught by the station staff. I don't ever want the security guards to find out - I am a closeted objectum sexual. But I only hide my sexual attraction to the station because I simply don't want people to find out and ban me from seeing her. It's not at all because I am ashamed. Erica Eiffel got banned from the Eiffel Tower for kissing it and straddling it - so I don't want to get banned like she did. I don't like to publicly show anything between me and Daidra as I have more respect than that."

The Erica Eiffel she is referring to is another woman called Erica who is also an objectum sexual and married the Eiffel Tower in 2007. Another well-known objectum sexual is Eklöf Berliner-Mauer, who married the Berlin wall in 1979 and is believed to be the first person to claim they had such an attraction.

Carol has tried defending her sexuality and others like her, saying Objectum sexuality is not a mental illness but as normal as being lesbian or bisexual and what they feel is real. She said she chats with the train station about her day and it listens. She could never love another train station, according to her, so for that reason, she's never leaving San Diego.
Below is a video of her spending time with the station.

18 year old man batters his mother in the streets as she begs for mercy because she woke him up to prepare for school.

Kieran McNally, 18, brutally  beat his mother, Frances, to stupor in the street while she begged for mercy, simply because she tried to get him to wake up and get ready for school.
Kieran eventually woke up after being prompted by his mother, but he was angry at the intrusion and he came downstairs in a fit, shouting at his mother.
She thought it best to leave the house and taking her dog, she ran from her house into Dean Park Road, but he came after them, chasing his mother and her dog down the road before lunging from behind and hitting his mother. As she begged for him to stop, he hit her even harder until a driver saw what was happening and pulled over to help her. He then called the police and stayed with the woman until the authorities arrived and took her to the hospital.

Procurator fiscal, Frank Clark, told of how Kieran attacked his mother and revealed it was not a new behaviour.
“She was treated for swelling and bruising on her face, a cut to her left hand and bruising and swelling to her left arm,” Clark said.
The court heard Kieran had previously fought with his dad Ross, leaving him in need of six stitches. He also threatened to burn the family home in Don Avenue, Renfrew.

It was also revealed in court that he had called his mother a “fat useless b*****d” and swore at his father during a quarrel on December 14, 2015. He even threatened to kill his father during the argument.

Kieran McNally was jailed for 18 months after his mum sustained injuries to her face, eye socket, hand and arm. He had been arrested for the fight with his father but was bailed on the condition that he stayed away from his parent's street and did not try to get in contact with them, but he breached the terms of his release a night after.

He spent a month again in detention following the attack on his mother and was bailed on the same condition, but, again, he disobeyed, hence he was jailed again by Sheriff David Pender for assault, acting in a threatening or abusive manner and two breaches of bail.

Housewife allegedly kills her husband because of Baba Ijebu

Onyinyechi Akunne, 29, allegedly stabbed her husband, Abuchi Akunne, 35, to death with a kitchen knife at their home at 85, Idimu Road, Ejigbo, Lagos, because of his love for gambling - Baba Ijebu specifically. 
According to Vanguard, Onyinyechi is facing a murder charge and was brought before an Ikeja High Court yesterday. She, however, denied the charge. The State Prosecutor, Mrs C. K. Tuiyi-Carena, told the court that Onyinyechi committed the offence on March 28th, 2015.She said;
“On the day of the alleged murder, Onyinyechi was preparing a meal while Abuchi was sitting on a chair in their home looking at his Baba Ijebu lottery tickets. Angered by her husband’s action, Onyinyechi scolded him for his love for gambling and a fight ensued between them. She took the kitchen knife she was using to cut vegetables and stabbed her husband in the chest, inflicting a deep cut, which led to excessive blood loss and his eventual death. The victim died before he could be taken to hospital by Onyinyechi and concerned neighbours.”
Onyinyechi was pregnant at the time the crime was committed and she's since given birth while at the Kirikiri Female Prisons. She was in court with the baby yesterday.

Onyinyechi's lawyer, Mr. Q.U. Ogudu, told the court that the accused has opted for a plea bargain and the prosecutor confirmed that the parties were working towards the plea bargain.

The case was adjourned to April 6.

Photos: Angry mother pours hot soup on daughter in Benin

A woman identified as Tricia Oterneghoro, has been arrested for pouring hot soup on her 13 year old daughter, Joyce Emmanuel for sleeping in a neighbour's house.

Narrating what led to the assault, the young girl said that when she wanted to go have her bath the previous night, her mom warned her not to go but she insisted. This made her mother lock the door leaving her outside in the cold.

When she realized her mum wouldn't open the door for her, she decided to go sleep in their neighbour's house. In the morning, her mother stormed into the neighbour's room with a pot of hot soup and poured it on her.

Speaking to ITV on the incident, neighbors described the woman as a wicked person who is fond of maltreating the girl.
One of the neighbours said; A woman with correct sense will not do this to her daughter. I have warned her not to beat the girl again. Her father called yesterday and the girl said she was interested in going to nursing school.”

Another neighbour said they heard the little girl screaming and had to run outside to see what was the problem. "I heard the noise and was forced to run outside, before we came out, we found out that this little girl was screaming, crying and shouting. Even the mother that did this thing didn't even care or act like she is a human being"

Meanwhile, the girl's mother defended her actions saying she had warned neighbours not to allow her daughter sleep in their house. So when she saw her the following morning she got angry and poured her the soup. She also claimed she didn't know what came over her.

Photos: Lebanese man cruelly abuses female employee in Ghana, dips her face into blended pepper for 'working slowly'

A 25-year-old female employee of the Marwako Restaurant in Accra has been allegedly assaulted on February 26th, by a Lebanese supervisor for fidgeting with a blender and working slowly.
The assailant, Jihad Thaabn, 26, a brother-in-law of the owner of the Marwako Restaurant, is said to have angrily grabbed the neck of the victim and dipped her face into blended pepper, which he had poured onto a table.

The victim, Evelyn Boakye, whose face was allegedly rubbed in the blended pepper for more than 10 minutes while Thaabn squeezed her neck and yelled abusive words on her, had to cry for help as she pleaded with Thaabn to let her go.
According to Evelyn, who is said to be on the verge of losing her sight, when she was finally freed, she struggled to find her way to a sink and tried to wash her face and eyes under running water with the help of some of her working colleagues.
However, while she was washing her face, Thaabn grabbed her again and locked her up in one of the rooms in the restaurant, while her eyes were still hurting.
She said her colleagues were also prevented from rescuing her. After shouting for help to no avail, Evelyn said she was finally released from the room after more than six hours of being locked up and warned not to report the incident to the police.
Below is a press statement by Marwako Fast Foods on the alleged assault on Evelyn.
"The management of Marwako Fast Foods deeply regrets the alleged incident of assault at its Abelenkpe branch on Sunday, February 26, 2017.
The branch supervisor at the centre of the unfortunate development has since been suspended, without prejudice, pending investigations and disciplinary sanctions over the alleged act.
Management assures its clients and the general public that it does not and will never condone mistreatment of its workers and therefore condemns in no uncertain terms the alleged assault.
Management is cooperating fully with and assisting police to establish the true facts for the purposes of allowing the laws of Ghana to be applied accordingly.
The said Abelenkpe branch supervisor, Mr. Jihad Chaaban, has been interrogated by police and is currently on bail pending further processes.
Meanwhile, management has become aware that the victim had immediately reported the incident to the Head of Human Resources at the Labadi branch, but this, unfortunately, had not been brought to the attention of management until police sought to arrest said supervisor.
It is understood that HR Department had attempted to resolve issues internally and that explains why said victim reported to work on Monday, February 27, 2017.
These attempts at internal resolution were then curtailed by management to allow for disciplinary proceedings as Chaaban was suspended.
Marwako in the meantime is providing the best of care and ensuring the best interest of the victim, and assures that it will not sacrifice the reputation it has built for itself over the last twelve years in Ghana as an entity that looks out for its employees who are credited for the best services it renders to its clients.
The Chief Executive Officer who is himself a Ghanaian citizen, employing over three hundred of his fellow Ghanaian citizens, is particularly saddened by the incident and commits to getting to the bottom of it.
Signed: Chief Executive Officer
Alhaji Marwan Mohammed

Patience Ozokwor, Sani Danja, Segun Arinze, Shawn Faqua star in 'Zahra' - In cinemas this March

The great elder statesman Nelson Mandela once said ‘There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children’. This rings true especially as it relates to the girl-child in IDP camps in Nigeria.
In the light of this, Rise Up’s Champions for Change, a social advocacy group set up to improve the reproductive, maternal, newborn, adolescent, and child health for women and their families in Sub-saharan Africa, with funding from the Ford Foundation, have partnered with one of Nigeria’s foremost film production companies, Royal Arts Academy to produce the touching and emotional film ‘Zahra’.

Zahra is the movie about a young 15 year old girl in Northern Nigeria who goes through the harrowing experience of having her village attacked and her family killed by marauding terrorists. She ends up in an IDP camp where she hopes to find refuge to grieve the loss of her family and dreams but alas that was not to be as she discovers the IDP turns out to be another type of hell. How she strives to overcome the squalor, hoarding and theft of food and medical supplies, violence by gangs within the camp, sexual harassment and temptations of prostitution etc are all explored in the film.

 In a chat with the producer she stated;

    ‘This is a very important message we wish to pass across especially at such a time as this … with the rise in the numbers of refugees and internally displaced people in the world. Film is a very powerful medium and once in a while it is important to use it to shine a torch on some of the injustices going on in our society, with a view to eradicating them. I hope we have been able to do so with this film’.

The movie stars Kannywood’s Sani Danja, as well as Nollywood’s Patience Ozokwor, Victor Olaotan, Shawn Faqua, Nicole Ndigwe, Funmi Eko-Ezeh and many more. It was produced by award winning producer Emem Isong Misodi and directed by  Chris Eneaji, Story was by Uduak Oguamanam and Vivian Chiji and screenplay was by Vivian Chiji.

‘Zahra’ will be screened in cinemas (limited release) on March 10th 2017
