Several burnt as pipeline fire breaks out in Ogun state

A fire broke out killing some persons in Arepo village as pipeline vandals attempted to steal petroleum products.
Several burnt corpses have been seen at the scene of a pipeline fire n Arepo, Ogun State.
Officials of the Fire Service and the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Thursday evening, battled to put out the fire that broke out from a bust pipeline.
The fire was allegedly caused by suspected vandals who burst the pipelines to siphon petroleum products.
An eye witness told PREMIUM TIMES that the fire started inside the Arepo forest on Wednesday as thick black smoke enveloped the air.

“The fire started on Wednesday. Firemen were there yesterday (Thursday), as at this morning (Friday), all we could see was thick black smoke in the air around the area of the fire,” the witness who referred to himself as Emmanuel said.
The South West Zonal Public Relations Officer of NEMA, Ibrahim Farinloye, said that more resources and equipment were being mobilised by a combined team of the agency as well as Federal and Ogun State Fire Service.
He confirmed that some dead bodies were sighted at the scene, although the actual figure could not be confirmed yet.
Meanwhile, Kareem Olanrewaju, the Public Relations Officer of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps in Ogun, said that the NNPC had been contacted at Mosinmi Depot.
“It is not the first time that pipeline will explode in that area. It is difficult to provide security in the place because it is a swampy area,” he said.
Mr. Olanrewaju said that the fire was difficult to put out because “the pipeline passes through the swamp thus making it difficult for rescue teams.”

Do you feel it is OK to sleep with your eye makeup on??

SHOCKING God laughs at scientists as they fool themselves in their fancy labs trying to understand all Gods creation without asking him: Nigerian couple Ben and Angela Ihegboro gave birth to a fair skinned, blue-eyed, blonde-haired baby girl which surprised all experts The baby is not an albino. The scientific test also dispels any rumor of wife’s unfaithfulness.

How did Ben and Angela Ihegboro, a black Nigerian couple living in London, give birth to a white daughter?
The answer may not be so black and white, experts say.
According to the BBC, there are three potential reasons for the baby Nmachi's unexpected appearance: "dormant white genes which entered both of her parents' families long ago, a genetic mutation unique to her, or albinism."
The first reports on the family's strange case had ruled out albinism, but the BBC says Nmachi's doctors have not ruled it out.

It's bread sculpted to look like a corpse - was shocked when i saw it too... what do you think? can you eat it **eeewwww***

Kittiwat wants to present bread as a new art in the form of a corpse. He wants to show people that they should not just stick to the usual appearance of food, even though his bread doesn't look beautiful but it can be eaten. When he first baked it, he didn’t think it would be popular and he didn’t think of marketing it. But when foreign media like A.P. Reuter wrote about his idea, many orders start pouring in from around the world such as U.S.A., Germany, Japan, South Korea etc. that made him earn more than US$1000 per month.This is real bread which is sculpted to look like a corpse. Thai baker Kittiwat Aun-A-Rom created it. He opened this bakery shop named 'Eat Bakery' in Potharam district, Ratchaburi province; a province which is a 2-hour drive from Bangkok.

Despite the hullabaloo trailing Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) decision to introduce N5, 000 notes, the director persists that Nigeria economy needs to move forward, thus they would forge ahead with the printing of the new single note.
The apex bank also said it has resolved to stop the production of polymer currency notes.
Its Director of Corporate Affairs, Mr. Ugochukwu Okoroafor, spoke with reporters in Abuja.
He said the apex bank would sensitize the public on the introduction of N5, 000 notes into the economy.
According to the CBN spokesman, “people the world over thought polymer will be a great replacement for paper currency but it has not turned out the way it was planned”.
Polymer notes, he said, are “difficult to destroy, incinerating old currency notes through briquetting was difficult in the case of polymer notes in an environmentally friendly way.”
In addition, he said polymer currency “is produced by just one company in the world, an Australian company called Securrency.”

The victim
This incident happened yesterday afternoon at Adeniji Adele, Dolphin Estate, Phase 2. A little girl ran into a woman's shop crying. The woman asked her why she was crying, but the little girl couldn't really express herself. She just kept pointing at a particular direction, and crying. Then a few minutes later, the shop owner saw a man approaching her shop and calling on the girl to follow him. The woman asked the man who he was and why he was after the girl. The man probably realized the women wasn't going to release the girl to him, so he tried to run. The woman raised an alarm immediately shouting ole ole, thinking he was a kidnapper, not knowing he had done something much worse.
