See How A Man Helped A Frustrated Jobless Man Who Collapsed On The Road Because Of Hunger(Photos)

As shared by Austin(originally shared by Nyameba Eden Kofi Yevutsey)...

'My last post as a 34 year old. I saved a life and I'm proud of it. I was driving by when I saw this guy lying on the floor in the hot sun. Several people passed by him and just pulled out their phones and took pictures. Others insulted him for being a drunkard. But I stopped and got closer and asked what was wrong. With a faint voice I heard him say "I'm not drunk. I didn't drink any alcohol". I saw in his eyes pain and helplessness. In the hot afternoon sun I saw that he was shaking as though he felt cold. With the help of the police officer in the picture we carried him to a better place under a tree and gave him water. Then he asked for food and we gave him food. After eating he told us his story.
His name is Isaac Boateng. A fisherman from Elmina. According to him these day when they go out to sea they don't get any fish. So out of frustration he came to Tema to find work but after roaming through the city for a week without any success he started begging for food or asking to work - do any work for food. Most people just turned him away and others threatened him. Before he fell and collapsed on the streets of Tema community 11, before I found him he hadn't eaten for 3 days. By the grace of God he is on his way back to Elmina right now with a little extra money in his pocket to keep him going for a few days. Apart from fishing Isaac also is a repairer of damaged bicycle tyres. He has learnt his lesson he told me. He promised me he'd stay in Elmina and not come foraging for opportunities in the city anymore. He said to me that the wickedness of the people in Tema surprised him most. Once he gained some strength he became very chatty and I must say I enjoyed the time it spent talking to this human being. I learnt today to work harder and to make life better for others with the fruit of my labour. I learnt that in every body is a beautiful soul that needs care and love'

Soldiers Connive With FRSC Officials,Strip A Man Nak*d In Abuja For Not Having His Complete Car Particulars(Pics)

As shared by May Ebute......

'The brutality of the military and the paramilitary in Nigeria can actually make madmen out of sane people.
The man in this picture got his car impounded by Road safety officials around Mararaba axis of Abuja, for lack of having his complete vehicle particulars. He is said to be a kabu kabu driver who goes by the name John. He usually plies the Mararaba, Abuja axis. Eye witness account says that because he dared to argue with them, the FRSC officials called upon soldiers to help assist them in disciplining the man. Trust our Nigerian soldiers. They beat the man, rolled him in a pool of stagnant water and tore off his clothes, leaving him stark nakd, under the full glare of motorists and passersby. They say he who is down needs fear no fall. Rather than cower in shame, the man caused a major hold up. He blocked the highway in protest amidst cheers from spectators in solidarity with him. With stones in both hands, he dared any motorist to pass. Of course no one wanted a stone to land on their heads or cars, so they kept their distance.
I wonder when our military will learn to start treating civilians as humans and not animals'.

Aisha Buhari Comes To The Aid Of Frustrated Man Duped By 419ers(Pics)

As shared by activist Aishat.....

'I met this gentleman last week in Makurdi. From the information gathered, he was a very hardworking family man until eight months ago when he was duped by 419s which he suffered a major stroke. I saw him struggling to get to Her Excellency's Future Assured event. He seemed frustrated due to poor mobility that he became emotional. I approached him and assisted him to get through all the stages without queuing. Would you believe that his blood pressure was done four times and it was 200/169. The machines were changed in case they were faulty. Anyway he was given four month supply of medication and Future Assured has promised to follow up. Hajia Aisha Buhari is a woman of her words and very proactive, he will surely be rehabilitated. A support plan already in place, there's no way he can afford his medication. What if he wasn't seen on the day? And there are millions like him out there that their lives are being wasted.  I don't know the way out but Nigerians are suffering'

Ekiti Govt yet to receive any official request on Moji Olaiya’s burial – Fayose’s aide

Ekiti State Government has described as misleading online publications, claiming that the State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose promised fund the movement of the corpse of late Nollywood Actress, Moji Olaiya from Canada to Nigeria, saying; “No official request has been made to the government in respect of the burial.”

Special Assistant to the State Governor on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, who made this known in a statement issued in Ado Ekiti on Monday, described as irresponsible, the comment made by a certain Olukayode Salako, claiming that Governor Fayose declined request to assist with the flying of Moji Olaiya’s corpse to Nigeria.

He said; “it is totally irresponsible on the part of the said Olukayode Salako, who is said to be the husband of Actress Foluke Daramola to have taken to the online media to disparage the person of the governor when even family members and genuine friends of the deceased are mourning her and seeking means of according her a befitting burial.”

The governor’s spokesperson, who maintained that there was no official communication between the governor and Moji Olaiya’s family, disclosed that; “On Thursday, last week, I was contacted on phone by a journalist friend, Yomi Fabiyi on the need for the Ekiti State Government to assist in raising a sum of $15,000 needed to bring Moji Olaiya’s corpse to Nigeria.

“My immediate response was that an official request, via a letter should be made and that the letter will be presented to the governor. I gave him my email address to which I said the letter should be sent.

“On Friday, I informed the Chief of Staff to the governor, Chief Dipo Anisulowo of my telephone conversation with Yomi Fabiyi, and my response that official letter should be written to the governor.

“Up till today, the letter has not been sent and as such, no official request has been made to the State Government.

“When my attention was drawn to online publication that Governor Fayose had elected to fund the flying of the deceased corpse to Nigeria, I called the journalist who did the report and told him pointedly that no such decision was taken by the governor. It was on the strength of this that Mr Yomi Fabiyi issued a press statement on behalf of the Burial Committee, stating that no request had been made to the government of Ekiti State and the official letter requested was yet to be sent.

“It therefore beats our imagination that certain character like Olukayode Salako could take to the online media to make derogatory comments on the governor, purportedly on behalf of the family.

“While we condole with the Olaiya family of Ijesha Isu Ekiti, Moji Olaiya’s friends, fans and colleagues in the movie industry, we wish to advise that the family should saddle only responsible people with the task of according their daughter a befitting burial.”
