MY REVIEW ON LIONHEART, GBENGA ADENE


1. Directing: No disrespect to the director but the directing of the movie is too lazy, the story may be a contributing factor anyways. Pete Edochie was just too relaxed in the movie despite the fact that he was about to lose the whole company and the scene where they had to meet the company's auditor is not realistic.

2. Cinematography: Camera angles were lazy too. No spectacular shots throughout the movie. It was just like we were seeing a regular movie and not LionHeart that is on NetFlix. The only shot that looks unique in the whole movie was when Genevieve was jogging and a very long shot was taken. No doubt the camera and picture quality are of high quality.

3. Editing: Just the regular.

4. SPX Costume: None in the whole movie actually but how I wish one was done in the beginning when there was a riot in the garage or show us Pete Edochie coughing blood and being rushed to the hospital. At least, it will make the movie interesting.

5. Audio: 100%

6. Casting: Terrible casting

7. Story: Well, every story has its own message. Let me just leave it that way.

8. Costume: 100%

9. I will rate this movie 4/10.

Khadijat's Death: Dr. Pelemo Gave graphic details of decomposing body



A Consultant Pathologist, Dr. Olumuyiwa Pelemo gave graphic details of the decomposing corpse of the late daughter of the former deputy governor of Ondo State, Khadijat Oluboyo, who was killed by her boyfriend.
Recall that the deceased was allegedly killed for ritual by his boyfriend, Saidu-Shakiru Adeyemi, who dug a grave, buried her and slept on it for days before he was arrested.

Testifying at the resumption of the murder case before an Akure High Court, Dr. Olumuyiwa Pelemo, said the hairs on her head and pubic region were shaved, while her two upper front teeth were broken off.

The Police prosecution, led by Helen Falowo, had invited the medical expert to give evidence in the murder case.
Dr. Pelemo said the corpse, which was exhumed and presented for autopsy on July 9, 2018 was already at the early stage of decomposition.

According to him, it was observed “that there was an abnormal shaving of the hair on the deceased’s head and the pubic region while her two upper front teeth had been broken off, leaving only some fragments left.
He added that there were fractures on the bones of her neck, shoulder along with her second to the sixth ribs on both sides, a dislocation of her hip joints with another fracture on the upper part of her thigh.

Pelemo said that “the injuries could not have been self inflicted but given by another party, and inflicted with a significant pressure especially the upper thigh region which had a lot of muscles.

The medical practitioner said that “there were lacerations on her chest which damaged two major vessels known as the phemora artery and vein that circulate blood in the body.

“The combined effects of the injuries led to Khadijat’s death.”
The autopsy report was admitted after due process as an exhibit before the court.

The brother of the defendant also testified that the family got wind of the development when his brother confessed to him that the missing girl was actually dead and buried in his room.

He confessed that the defendant begged him to get a sack in which they could dispose the corpse, but decided to report to their father who in turn ordered him to report to the Police.
The testimony of the father of the defendant, Seidu Siyanbola corroborated that of his son.

Seidu pointed out that he knew the deceased as his son’s girlfriend, adding that they had been courting for three years.

He added that his son confessed to him that some men had killed her and buried her inside his room and threatened to deal with his family if he reported the incident to the Police.

The father said that was the reason his son gave him for hiding the truth, while the deceased’s family members were looking for her.

He admitted that the defendant did not betray any emotion during the period that the deceased body was decomposing in his room.

Meanwhile, the prosecution has closed its case, while the defence was expected to open its case on January 21.

"Don't fix the blame, fix the problem"- Pope Jero


      Robert H Schuller

Around 12:54am in the night, I couldn't sleep I listened to all the music on my phone yet I couldn't sleep so I decided to checked my monthly book which was "Tough time don't last, tough people do" by Dr Robert H Schuller. I wanted to read few pages so that I can sleep. I felt motivated with with contents of the book especially when I got to page 25 - 37 of the book. I was thrilled by the words of Robert H Schuller which deals with positive thinking, how tough people were able to manage their crises and still survive, fixing problems and realizing the fact that nobody owes you an apology for failing.

At that point when I saw where he wrote "don't fix the blame, fix the problem" it reminds me of the fact that i am still in Nigeria where everything seems blank, where standard of living is extremely difficult, where people are so depressed that suicide rate is skyrocketing.

As a progressive minded Nigerian, I quickly subscribe for a 250MB to check some facts on internet on how some countries survived depression under great leaders.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt's achievements was captivating, he was sworn in at the height of depression, he immediately lunched a new deal to end the recession. it was written that in 1941 he faced the first attack on America soil at Pearl harbor and it was said that Roosevelt spent more to gear up factories to produce equipment needed for America to enter world war 2.

It was recorded that Franklin Delano Roosevelt solved the problem of economy, social security, the U. S minimum wage and insurance for bank deposit.

He wasn't busy complaining about the problem he met on ground rather he was able to fix the problem and created a sustainable structure to enhance good standard of living for the people of United States of America.

I also read that President Barack Obama entered into office in 2009 to fight the 2008 financial crises, he immediately lunched the ambitious affordable Health care Act, he ended the 2008 recession. In 2009, the U.S Congress approved Obama 's $787billion economic stimulus package,it cut taxes and create job opportunities.

Don't you think he would wasted have so much time complaining about past leaders instead of fixing the problem not the blame.

I glance through how Singapore became a successful country when Independence separated them in 1965, they were underdeveloped yet their first prime minister Kuan yew was able to strategize in solving the problem with a transformational Policies that brought about the change mantra in Singapore of today.

No country is Problem - free, Our leaders must be prepared to take up challenges and overcome them , it is their responsibility to do that and at the same time they must create a positive vibe that will instigate Positivity amongst the people and not serving as threat to them.

Dr Robert H Schuller said ; A Problem free life is an illusion, a mirage in the desert, it is a dangerously deceptive perception which can misled, blind and distract , he said to pursue a problem free life is to run after an elusive fantasy, it is a waste of mental and physical energies .

We must eradicate the mindset that there would be a time that any administration would inherit a problem free country , it is just a mirage in the desert, it is not possible but we must be prepared to solve problems and not fixing blame.

Henry Ford said, Don't find fault, find remedy.

Cristiano Ronaldo To Be Erased From Real Madrid’s History

Real Madrid will soon erase its former player Cristiano Ronaldo from its history. An article on the club’s website celebrating four players — Sergio Ramos, Raphaël Varane, Luka Modrić and Marcelo securing their spots in UEFA’s Team of the Year for 2018, has seen Ronaldo omitted. Report also have it that Madrid stopped following Ronaldo on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram after he left for Juventus.



This is quite different from the player’s old club Manchester United which still follows their former star.
Being the club’s all-time record scorer, Ronaldo has no place in the club’s main photo choices for the ‘Football History’ and ‘Football Legends’ sections.



“If they want to feature another player’s greatest
moments and there are highlights of him scoring from Ronaldo’s assists or assisting a Ronaldo goal, then they will go looking for other highlights clip involving other players,” the Daily Mail’s Pete Jenson wrote.

OPEN LETTER ON THE PURPORTED MEETING OF ONDO STATE STUDENTS STAKEHOLDERS AND THE PLANNED RALLY TO DECLARE SUPPORT FOR ONDO STATE GOVERNMENT


I write to inform and intimate all the students bodies, stakeholders and the general public in Ondo state about the antics and perfected plans by the President of National Association of Ondo State Students(NAOSS), Emmanuel Olanrewaju Akeredolu, to trade off all Ondo state students to the state government for a pot of porridge and millions of naira.


Few days ago, Emmanuel Olanrewaju Akeredolu summoned all students stakeholders in Ondo state to a meeting to discuss the welfare and well-being of our students. According to a statement he posted and signed on his Facebook page, he confirmed inviting all SUG presidents in Ondo State to the meeting, backed by pictures. Furthermore, he hailed the present Ondo state government for the giant strides put in by the governor to uplift us and enjoined all students to support him.


This is wrong in all ramifications!


Firstly, the National President of NAOSS doesn't have the legal and moral backing to invite the Student Union Government presidents as they are all senators in the Ondo NANS JCC axis. It's unconstitutional, illegal and remains unacceptable. As the NANS chairman in Ondo state, I also do not have the legal backing to invite all the 18 chapter president of NAOSS, as it doesn't belong to my jurisdiction.


Why would the NAOSS president trespass on my territory?


More so, the Ondo State Government, led by His Excellency, Arakunrin ‘Rotimi Akeredolu, must do all in its capacity, to unite the students bodies and stakeholders in Ondo state for a smooth, unhindered growth and development of all students and prove its unparalleled, unshaken and undiluted commitment to our well-being.


We must now pause and ask ourselves these three fundamental questions: What were our universities designed to do in the first place? Are they doing those things to our satisfaction today? And if not, why not? Let us admit it: We do have serious problems on our hands. The longer we postpone our confrontation with the reality, the more difficult it will be to tackle.


With the elections fast approaching, suddenly, you now need the support of our dear students whose tuition fee was increased without compassionate consideration.


Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, is universally acknowledged to be a center of excellence, an institution reserved only for the best and the brightest in Nigeria. In the past two years of your administration, the 21st century university tuition was increased over 500 percent, same as Ondo state School of Science and Technology, Okitipupa and Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo. Little wonder why, in the last two years of the administration you lead, our tertiary institutions of learning have been guided by the pursuit of equity; not excellence but a heavy dose of mediocrity.

May I also inform you, Mr. Governor, the NAOSS National President, all the stakeholders involved in the grand move to trade us off and the active players in the plans by NAOSS to organize a rally to declare the support of Ondo state students to the governor, to shelve their plans for now and halt all the processes. NANS JCC, Ondo Axis, would not be a part to the rally and will do all, at its disposal, to stop the proposed rally.


We are the face of all Nigerian students and we will not, for our own comfort and pockets, abandon them in this time of struggle to emancipate us, build educational legacies and open our classrooms back for us to study
Signed:
All SUG PRESIDENTS                             NANS CHAIRMAN
                                                                      ADEWUNMI A

Yinka Badmus Arrested For Wearing Dreadlocks

Yinka Badmus, a 24-year-old photojournalist with Talk Village International, has been arrested and remanded in Ikoyi Prison, over his dreadlocks, which some policemen felt made him look like a cultist.
Badmus, who had just bagged a scholarship, was arrested for committing no crime by policemen attached to the Lagos State Police Command Anti-Cultism Unit.



His boss, Stephen Oguntoyinbo, said he received disturbing phone calls from prison warders, urging him to ensure Badmus, who is now critically ill, was granted bail and taken to hospital to ensure he did not die.


He explained that Badmus was arrested on December 31, 2018, while eating noodles at Pedro Bus Stop, Gbagada, where he lives. It was learnt that after he was detained, the policemen refused to allow him to contact anyone.



While he was in detention, trying to convince the policemen that he was not a cultist, friends and family had become frantic with worry, searching for him. Badmus’ whereabouts was eventually known after a detainee, who was granted bail, contacted one of Badmus’ relatives.


 He had already spent three days in police detention, contravening the stipulated instruction that every suspect must be charged within 24 hours. Oguntoyinbo said: “After days in detention, Yinka was able to send a message to a close relative on January 3.
He was found at the station.



 The information given by the police was that he was arrested because of his hairstyle. I was asked to come to Gbagada Police Station on January 4, to bail him and see the officer in charge of his case.”


The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), CSP Chike Oti, confirmed Badmus’ arrest. “Badmus was arrested along with others for unlawful gathering. They were arrested with a bag of Indian hemp,” he said.

Kevin Fret , the first openly gay Latin trap artist has been shot and killed in Puerto Rico.



According to El Vocero, one of Puerto Rico's biggest newspapers, the 24-year-old was on his Yamaha motorcycle when he was shot at around 5.30am on Thursday in Santurce, San Juan. He was shot eight times and died later the same day at the Medical Center of Río Piedras of injuries related to the shooting.



Fret who first stepped into the spotlight in April 2018 with his single 'Soy Asi' was an outspoken advocate for the LGBT community and was one of the few well-known gay rappers on the island nation. Fret's manager, Eduardo Rodriguez, confirmed his death in a statement, saying 'Kevin was an artistic soul, a big-hearted dreamer.



His passion was music, and still had a lot to do. This violence must stop. There are no words that describe the feeling we have and the pain that causes us to know that a person with so many dreams has to go.


We must all unite in these difficult times, and ask for much peace for our beloved Puerto Rico.'

MC Oluomo Was Stabbed With A Poisoned Knife

A National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) leader Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly referred to as MC Oluomo was stabbed with a poisoned knife at the Lagos APC rally yesterday. An APC chieftain who was at the venue made the revelation to The Pulse on condition of anonymity.


“MC Oluomo was stabbed twice with a poisonous knife called Makenje (which literally translates to don’t touch blood). All the VIPs were spirited out of the venue by security personnel. It was like a war zone with sophisticated guns and machetes on display”, he said.


 Another source opened up that the violence was orchestrated by persons who are still angry that Ambode was schemed out of the 2019 governorship race and disgraced, as Sanwo-Olu was settled for by the powers that be.
“It was well planned by top politicians. This was carried out by thugs loyal to Ambode’s camp.


 These thugs and the politicians who put them up to this are still angry that Ambode didn’t get a second term ticket.
The plot was to disrupt the rally and turn attention away from the candidate Sanwo-Olu. And you have to say they succeeded to some degree”, says the source.



MC Oluomo wasn’t supposed to be rushed to the hospital after being stabbed, because he supposedly wears a spiritual armour that shields him from gun, knife and other dangerous weapons.


Which was why the knife used to stab him was a poisoned one. But he was expected to be inured from the venom of a poisoned knife, no less. In other words, MC Oluomo was supposed to be ‘unkillable’.


“The only way they could break through MC Oluomo’s skin was to poison the knife and as I speak with you now, native and medical doctors are battling to keep him alive by extracting the venom from his system.



 It’s 50:50 for him now”, another APC source shares. Another source mentioned that MC Oluomo is recovering in hospital after “doctors and two elderly jazzmen (native doctors) extracted the poison from his system “The man who stabbed MC Oluomo lives on Apapa Road in Ebute Metta. Forget what the Commissioner of Police is telling you”, the APC source offers.

The Professor went on to explained that what they had on ground now is a proposal from the FG, which ASUU insisted must be written down showing her plans of action ― unlike the prior meetings that the FG always made verbal proposals.


Recall that their last meeting happened to be the seventh time they held meetings over their differences without tangible outcomes from the prior meetings.

We’re Ready To Work For Nigeria, Tinubu Assures Buhari

The All Progressives Congress National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday assured President Muhammadu Buhari that the party’s campaign council had accepted the assignment given to it by the president and would work for the country.



“We accept President Buhari’s Assignment”, Tinubu said in a statement by his Media Officer, Mr Tunde Rahman in Lagos, noting that the council would not let President Buhari down.



Tinubu also the Co-Chair of the party’s
Presidential Campaign Council, said that letting Buhari down would also let down the nation.
He said he had therefore, rallied members of the campaign council with the Minister of Transport, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, as Director-General for the task ahead.



 He noted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should not be allowed to return to power and “return to the days where they ruled the nation like overlords”.



“I think I can speak for all members of the campaign council that we accept the assignments given by the President with devotion and a firm commitment to perform to our utmost, individually and collectively on the tasks given. “It is a great honor and responsibility he has given us.



 We dare not let him down because doing so would also let down the nation.
“This election concerns more than two competing personalities and political parties. It is a contest between two different visions for the country and the futures these visions portend.

“The APC seeks a better Nigeria by reforming our institutions of governance that these institutions may better implement policies engendering dynamic economy development.



“We seek not only growth but also a fair and just allocation to all segments of society of the harvest of our national endeavors.
“Let no Nigerian be forever trapped in poverty and despair. Let all Nigerians be given the genuine opportunity to realise their full potential and contribute to this nation and their own lives as much as their talents and willpower permits of them.



“We build a Nigeria where government leads the nation but does not rule over the people,” he said
