The world’s Longest Serving Death Row Inmate Is Released Because Evidence That Put Him Behind Bars For 45 YEARS Was Probably Made Up

A Japanese court has ordered the release of the world’s longest serving death row inmate because the evidence used against him was likely made up.

Iwao Hakamada, 78, a former professional boxer convicted of the 1966 murder of a family, has spent the last 45 years behind bars on death row, a Guinness World Record – including 30 years in solitary confinement waiting to die.

The court ordered a retrial for Mr Hakamada - who was sentenced to death in 1968 but not executed because of a lengthy appeals process - although the prosecution has four days to decide whether it will appeal the decision.

According to local media, Mr Hakamada was released from Tokyo Detention House for the first time in decades at around 5pm today, Japanese time. Accompanied by his sister, Mr Hakamada, in a yellow shirt, made his way slowly out of the court to a car before being driven away.

but he instead Emeka started a fight with him even went ahead to pursue him into the street with a long stick, caught up with him and head butted him, giving him a cut in the face and breaking his hand.

Residents of Modupe Johnson Street tried to intervene but Emeka, in anger called officers from Bode Thomas police station and had his brother and the barman arrested.

They were locked up at the Bode Thomas police station for 24 hours and were released.

You put what God Has Joined Together Asunder, Let The Wrath Of God Be Your Portion - Tchidi Tchikere's Estranged Wife Reacts

Sophia Tchidi Chikere (pictured left) has reacted to the statement released yesterday by actress Nuella Njubigbo who claimed she only started dating the movie director after his marriage to Sophia packed up. Sophia says this is absolutely not true.

Speaking exclusively, Sophia said she didn't know about the impending wedding until she read it here. She also said she initially found the news hard to believe because she and Tchidi are not formally divorced yet.

Reacting to Nuella's comments that the affair with Tchidi only started after his marriage ended, Sophia says it's a blatant lie, that Nuella started dating Chidi long before their marriage ended, and actually blamed Nuella for the demise of her marriage that produced three boys.

This is actually the first time Sophia will comment on this issue since her separation from Tchidi in 2012. Find what she said exclusive to VOB after the cut..

Egyptian Court Sentences 529 Morsi Supporters To Death

Egyptian security forces clash with supporters of ousted president Mohammed Morsi in the Nasr City district of Cairo, Egypt, January 10, 2014
An Egyptian court today in Cairo, sentenced to death 529 supporters of toppled president Mohammed Morsi after they were found guilty of charges ranging from rioting, attacking people and police facilities and even killing a police officer in Minya, a part of the country.

The case which is said to be the biggest trial in the modern history of Egypt paraded about 1,200 defendants from Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood group, which has been declared as a terrorist organisation by the new military backed government.

Morsi, who is Egypt’s first democratically elected president, was toppled by the army in July, 2013 after citizens protested against his one-year rule.

Hundreds of his supporters were killed in security crackdowns that followed his overthrow and thousands were detained, most of them who were sentenced to death today. The judge has however said the defendants can appeal their sentences.

A Woman Can Also Propose To A Man - Pastor Sam Adeyemi

Leadership speaker and Senior Pastor of  Daystar Christian Centre, Pastor Sam Adeyemi, while preaching on "Prepaper for the wedding", on Sunday March 16th, shared his opinion about women proposing to the man and also gave insight on how they can go about it. Below is what he said:

"Some people may ask, Pastor is it okay for it to be the lady that will tell the guy about marriage? Well, is there anywhere in the bible that says a lady can't tell a man? The thing though is, a lot of time, it's better for the guy to pop the question because men become suspicious a lot of time when they are being chased. They like to eat meat that they chased in the bush. They don't like the one that falls on their lap dead. However., sometimes, all the signs are there that she is the one but he is not just speaking. Its also not healthy for the lady emotionally for the man to be so close to her and yet not say anything. So in such a case, a lady needs to prod him.

So how can a lady go about it? Ask him where are we going? I sense this is where the relationship is going, what do you think? Its either a yes or a no, but with that, you know where you are going instead of being on an emotional roller coaster and your heart is smashed into pieces at the end of the day".

Pastor Sam supported his position with the story of Ruth in the Bible who was taught to propose to Boaz whom she eventually married according to Ruth Chapter 3  in the Bible. He however emphasized the need for women to apply uttermost wisdom when proposing to a man.

[Paul Okoye’s Wedding Highlight]; See Why Rotimi Amaechi Left Paul Okoye’s Wedding

Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, stormed out of the traditional marriage ceremony of Paul Okoye barely 30 minutes after he arrived, because the ceremony did not start on time.

Governor Rotimi Amaechi couldn’t understand why the event had not begun by 2pm when it was billed to start by 12pm.

The governor came in around 2pm and, as he alighted from his vehicle, his aides informed him that the event had not started and neither the couple nor celebrity guests had arrived.

He responded, ‘If we wait for some time and they don’t come, we will leave. I don’t have time for all this.’

The governor posed for photos before entering the hall. However, barely 30 minutes later, a visibly unimpressed Amaechi walked out of the hall accompanied by his aides and drove out of the event premises.

The marriage ceremony, which was billed to start by 12pm, did not commence till around 2:45pm.

Nigerians really need to start keeping to time!

Malaysia’s Prime Minister Says Flight MH370 Ended in Indian Ocean

Malaysia’s prime minister, Najib Razak said Monday that further analysis of satellite data confirmed that the missing Malaysian airliner went down in the southern Indian Ocean. The announcement narrowed the search area but left many questions unanswered about why it flew to such a remote part of the world.

The new analysis of the flight path, came from Inmarsat, the British company that provided the satellite data, and from Britain’s air safety agency. The company had “used a type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort,” the prime minister said.

The aircraft’s last known position, according to the analysis, “is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites, It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, Flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.” he said.

Malaysia Airlines also announced Monday that the missing jetliner is assumed to have crashed in the Indian Ocean.

"We deeply regret that we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board have survived…we must now accept all evidence suggests the plane went down in the Southern Indian Ocean," the statement as saying.

How did a plane going from Malaysia to China end up in the Southern Indian Ocean?

After crying helplessly for nearly 24 hours inside a soak away pit, a day old-baby was over the weekend rescued from a soak-away pit in Olomore area of Abeokuta North local government of Ogun state.

An eyewitness said that residents of Surulere community in Olomore area of Abeokuta North woke up to a cry of a little baby coming from a soak away toilet behind a church in the area.

Worshippers at the Cherubim and Seraphim (C&S) Church had in the early hours of Saturday, heard the baby crying, but could not link it to a particular direction. According to them, not suspecting anything amiss, they carried on with their vigil, and left for their respective houses later that morning.

However, later in the day, the baby’s crying became more pronounced and residents nearby got agitated. It turned out that the baby’s cries came from a soak-away pit beside the Church building.

All concerned gathered and immediately a rescue mission was raised. By 6 pm, residents found the baby, a boy, who was found alive with his placenta uncut.

Nigerian Police Force; Where Is Your Dignity, Where Is Your Pride? [PHOTOS]

This is an institutional shame for Nigerian Police Force. It is one the sad effect of corruption in Nigeria. A Well kitted Nigerian Police Officer carrying hand bag for a woman supposed to be wife of his superior in Public and a Nigerian Police officer holding the umbrella for a Chinese contractor.

We have close to 400,000 policemen in Nigeria today but the level of insecurity is more dangerous than it was in 2000 when Obasanjo first gave approval for mass recruitment into the police. But, how can there ever be adequate security when policemen are washing cars for big men and carrying bags for their wives?

[Video]; Kenyans Villagers chase down and Capture goat-killing cheetahs

Cheetahs may be the fastest animals in the world but that fact counted for nothing when four Kenyan villagers last week chased down and captured two goat-pilfering big cats.

The four brave men from north-east Kenya told reporters that the cheetahs had been picking off their goats everyday. Before launching the chase over a distance of four miles, the men reportedly waited until the hottest part of the day so that the cheetahs would not hit their usual top speed. The villagers captured them unhurt and handed them to the area’s Kenya Wildlife Service officials.

T.B Joshua counters Chris Oyakhilome again: “Masturbation is as bad as fornicating”

As online media are reacting to Prophet T.B Joshua’s statement about abortion after rape, the popular cleric has also expressed his opinion on the topic of masturbation, an issue that courted serious controversy some years ago when Christ Embassy Pastor Chris Oyakhilome stated it was not a sin.

In an interactive question and answer session via his official Facebook Page, T.B Joshua bluntly said the following, “What is masturbation? Masturbation stems from a desire to have sex. Once that desire is nursed, it is as bad as fornicating. In other words, once that desire is nursed, one is in bondage to the spirit of immorality. There is no other name to call it than sin.”

Contrarily, Pastor Oyakhilome stated in a video available on YouTube, “In itself, masturbation is not a sin against God. Now I say that for a reason! Many Christians think that is a sin against God and satan uses it in oppressing them, oppressing their minds and making them feel ineffective and inefficient in the things of God… So if you don’t like it, stop! But God has got nothing to do with it. Masturbation is about you and your body and God is not offended by it.”

So, which pastor is right on this contentious issue?

Hitler's Photographer Returned To Dachau Concentration Camp, Took Series Of Chilling Images 5 years After Survivors Were Set Free From Nazis

Hugo Jaeger, Hitler's photographer
Hitler with wife of Gauleiter Albert Forster at his Upper Bavaria estate in the late 30s
Even though they were taken in color, the images of Dachau concentration camp, where tens of thousands were imprisoned and killed by the Nazis, appear bleak and foreboding.

What is even more chilling than the sight of drainage ditches to catch the blood of victims, or the images of gas chambers, is that the man behind the camera in 1950 was Hugo Jaeger - one of Hitler's personal photographers.

The events that unfolded in Dachau continue to haunt the world 81 years after it first opened its gates on March 22, 1933. But the series of images taken by Jaeger, who documented the rise of Nazi Germany, add a layer of horror to the pride Hitler and his followers took in their movement.

Cameroonian Terrorist Leads Nigerian Troops To Weapons Hidden In Burnt Church

Assault weapons recovered from Boko Haram
Nigeria’s military high command said on Friday that the arrest of a terrorist who claims to be a Cameroonian and an arms courier for the Boko Haram group has led to the discovery of a large cache of arms and ammunition hidden in the premises of a burnt church by the insurgents.

In a statement signed by Major General Chris Olukolade, the military said weapons, which have now been recovered by troops include Anti aircraft guns, rocket propelled guns as well as the General Purpose and other brands of machine guns , were found buried in the premises of one of the churches earlier burnt by terrorists in Kalabalge Local Government Area of Borno state.

Boko Haram: A Look At Evil’s Face

To know evil, you have only to stand at the entrance of Federal Government College, Buni Yadi in Yobe State where, on February 25, 2014, 53 students were massacred in the most grisly manner. On that day, a band of insurgents that goes by the name of Boko Haram descended on the school while the students were sleeping.

The brigands had come with death offering, crudely packaged in discarded cans and network of wires – they call it IED. Then, like the devil’s rain, balls of explosion started falling on the harmless, defenseless students – while they slept.

To be sure their mission was clinically efficient and effective, they sprayed the rooms with showers of gunfire.

An eyewitness recounted:
“Students were trying to climb out of the windows and they were slaughtered like sheep by the terrorists. They caught them and slit their throats. Others, who ran, were gunned down.”

Boko Haram Writes Nigerian Army, Threatens To Attack Maiduguri Military Barracks

The members of the Boko Haram Sect have written to the 7th Division of the Nigerian Army threatening to attack Maimalari Barracks on Friday (today).

Investigations revealed that security had been beefed up in the Maimalari Barracks which has the Headquarters of the 7th Infantry Division of the Artillery Corps, the Ordinance, the Signal and other crucial units of the Army in Maiduguri.
