The woman who won the $758m Powerball lottery split with her partner of 15-years in 2016

August 27, 2017 0

Richard Lord and his partner of 15-years Mavis Wanczyk split in 2016 and if he had just married her, he would have shared in her record-breaking $758.7 million Powerball win - which the mother-of-two, who opted to collect her winnings in the form of a lump sum, will take home around $443m after taxes. Massachusetts law states that anything purchased over the course of a marriage - including a lottery ticket - counts as a marital asset to be shared in the event of a split.
Speaking to DailyMail after her win, Richard said;
"I could have paid off the rest of the house, taken a vacation in Europe - but that's just the way life is sometimes. But I'm happy for her. I certainly don't hold anything against her. I hope she enjoys all that money - she's certainly got a lot of it now. Right now I know she's pulling her hair out with all the harassment and the soliciting phone calls."
Richard explained that he never proposed because he lost 50 percent of everything when he divorced his ex-wife prior to meeting Wanczyk, and didn't want to repeat the mistake.
"I was married for 20 years but that ended in one big headache. She got the kids, I used to have a gorgeous house and she got that too. After the divorce I was left with barely enough to eat. So after all of that I wasn't in any hurry to get married again. We went our separate ways last August,' added Lord. 'All she said to me was "I'm moving on to a better life."

Inspector kills police superintendent over money, commits suicide

August 24, 2017 0
police inspectorA policeman, Abraham Arowogun, attached to the Kajola Police Station, Kajola town, in the Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State, has committed suicide by jumping into a deep well in the station.
The incident, which occurred on Tuesday, was mysterious to other police officers in the division as well as members of the community.
A police source told PUNCH Metro that Arowogun did not have any history of mental instability.
According to the source, the deceased inspector had first shot dead the Divisional Crime Office,  SP Timothy Aruehi,  after they had a disagreement over money.
Our correspondent gathered that Aruehi had received a complaint that Arowogun, while investigating a case, diverted a sum of money to private use.
The source said, “Arowogun was investigating a case and the DCO discovered that a sum of N150,000 was involved. He further discovered that he (Arowogun) had actually converted the money to private use.
“The DCO called and querried him for the action.
“In the course of interrogating him, he stormed out angrily. He returned with a gun which he used to shoot Aruehi dead.”
The police source added that after killing the DCO, there was confusion in the station as other officers fled for safety.
“After killing the DCO, he knew that what he did was unprofessional and unpardonable in the police force. He just left the scene and jumped into the well at the back of the station,” the source added.
The corpses of the two policemen were said to have been deposited in a mortuary in the Ondo State General Hospital, Ore.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident, adding that investigation had commenced.
“It was an unfortunate incident; but we have begun investigation. The command is very saddened and our hearts are heavy. We are doing everything possible to dig further into the matter and talk to our officers and men to avert a recurrence,” the PPRO said.
In a related development, the police in Akwa Ibom State on Wednesday shot a resident for allegedly picking stolen money which dropped along Wellington Bassey Way, Uyo.
Our correspondent gathered that a three-man gang had snatched the money from occupants of a government-owned car .
The gang was reportedly moving the money into a getaway vehicle seized from a female motorist, when some of the cash fell on the road.
A witness, Mr. Joe Inyang, said, “The people who owned the money were in a Toyota Camry with a government number plate, AK 705 C01. They appeared to be coming from one of the new generation banks, where they withdrew the huge amount.
“As their driver was going through Paul Bassey Street, he noticed the robbers, who were in a Toyota Corolla. They were on his trail.
“As he tried to link Brooks Street, he rammed the vehicle into an oncoming Toyota Camry. It was then that the robbers blocked access to the government car.
“At that point, the robbers seized the vehicle and started shooting continously into the air. They shattered the boot and doors of the car with bullets to get access to the money, which was in Ghana-Must-Go bags.
“It was in the process of moving the money into another vehicle they seized from a woman that some residents scrambled for the fallen cash. The man the police shot rushed out of his office to pick the cash which littered the road.”
The woman whose car was used as a getaway by the robbers; the man who sustained gunshot injuries; and the driver and other occupants of the government vehicle, were seen by our correspondent at the ‘A Division’ of the state police command on Wednesday.
A resident, who did not want his name in print, told PUNCH Metro that the robbery could not have occurred without the involvement of people in government or the bank, adding that the money could not be less than N50m.
The Commissioner of Police in Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Mu’azu Zubairu, did not answer calls that were put across to his telephone. He did not also respond to a text message sent to his line.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Chukwu Ikechukwu, when contacted, said he was not in the state.

August 10, 2017 0
Jose Mourinho has explained why he decided to give his medal to a young fan after Manchester United’s UEFA Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid. The Reds boss handed the medal to a delighted supporter – a boy named Deji – in the front row before departing.
Asked about the gesture in his post-match press conference, Mourinho gave an answer that prompted laughs among the many journalists present. “Sometimes when I win, I don’t keep the medals – so imagine when I lose!” the manager said wryly. .
“For me, the medal would go to some place in my house; for that kid, it’s the moon – something to keep and remember. It was a little kid with a United shirt. I have no idea where he comes from. I think it’s something he’ll never forget.”

Jealous Wife Stripped And Stood Naked In The Sea In Protest After Her Husband Went Partying With His Work Mates

July 26, 2017 0
The woman later identified as Zhang Yan, stood there naked as the day she was born much to the amusement of the crowd who had gathered to see what all the fuss was about.
Ranting and raving in her mother tongue, nobody had a clue what her issue was and eventually she walked out the water on to the sand where she was wrapped in a towel and taken down the station to tell her story.
Initially cops were concerned for her state of mind but it eventually came out in the wash when an interpreter translated her tale.
It turned out her husband had went out to party with his workmates on Walking Street and hadn’t returned home at a reasonable hour sending her into a jealous fury, although it wasn’t made clear what she aimed to achieve by going into the sea starkers miles away from where he was indulging in all that Walking Street has to offer.
Thai media reported the husband finally made an appearance back at the hotel at 4.30am which sent the naked protestor into a rage.

July 26, 2017 0
14 year old Aisha Isah pictured above, has been arrested by the Niger state police command for allegedly killing her 40 year old husband, Isiaka Usman, who she got married to 5 months ago. According to the Northern City News, Aisha allegedly used a pestle to hit her husband which led to his death at their home in Lifari Village in the Mashegu Local Government Area of the state. The teenager had been complaining to her family members that since she moved into her deceased husband's house, he had not provided her with money to eat or for her upkeep and that whenever she asked for money to eat, he would ask her to go and eat at her parent's house. 
On the day of the incident, Aisha had asked her husband for money to eat since he had not given her with food for two days and the two of them got into an argument. According to reports, he slapped her and in anger, Aisha picked up the pestle in their kitchen and hit him on the head with it. He collapsed and was rushed to the Mashegu hospital where he later died.
Aisha says she regrets her action as it was never her intention to kill her husband.

IVF has made this possible! Congratulations to her…… but why going through pregnancy with her age that is hyper risky when you can do surrogacy. Become a surrogate in Nigeria or abroad by registering on .You must have given birth to at least one child before you can be a surrogate, you can register also if you are interested in egg donation and you are between the age of 21-28
