I Only Wanted To Use And Dump You—Iyanya Tells Yvonne Nelson

Though he sang in one of his tracks that ‘all I want is your waist’ but the ‘Kukere’ crooner, Iyanya has replied Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson, who he reportedly dated, that he only wanted her for fling and not for love.

Speaking with on Tim Westwood show in the UK, Iyanya said he only wanted the actress for pleasure and not for true love like she would have thought in her mind.

“Yvonne Nelson, I lost your medicine. She called that she’s coming over and I ride her like a ‘jangolova’. All I want is your waist, no emotions, no tears, no letters, no love, no nothing. All I want is your waist, she ain’t even know it. She brought emotions.”

Hope Yvonne will not be angry with Iyanya again after this confession?

Tonto Dikeh Reacts : ''If you can’t find me with marijuana, slow down on your assumptions''

As the alleged pictures of hemp displayed by Tonto Dike in the social media continues to generate buzz and gossips, the controversial screen diva has condemned those spreading the rumour without due confirmation, saying, the story was made up, based on some assumptions.
In a release made available to DailyPost, Dike had said that those photos did not originate from her, as they were originally sent to her instagram page on her birthday. She denied that those pictures were real, arguing that they were mere birthday designs made by a fan, which she responded with a “thank you” message.
Tonto stressed that in as much as she would have loved to remain mum over the matter, the magnitude of the rumour called for some clarification.
She said “As much as I would like to ignore the current issue on hemp, I think I owe well-meaning people some clarification. It is so easy the misconception that can come from a picture- the genius of technology. If you cannot find me holding a wrap of marijuana then you may want to slow down on your assumptions. We shouldn’t use our platforms to spread half-truths
“A fan wrote those words with herbs on my birthday on instagram, and I replied: “Thank you #teampoko”. Now, how does someone else’s action become my crime?” She asked.
In justifying her earlier post that she smokes ganja and weed while her haters smoke her gossip, she said ” If I said those words (‘Mi smoke ganja, mi smoke weed, while my hatez smoke ma gossip’ ) I will stand by them, but I didn’t, and just because it is convenient for people to believe the lies, still doesn’t make it the truth. The whole thing is falsified by people who just love to have fun at other’s expense” She condemned.
Stressing that the current pictures being circulated were falsified and not like the original one sent to her instagram page, she said “Let’s put some thought to some of the things we write. Don’t do cut-and-paste. The original pictures are there to see; but no! That is too boring to be the truth. We want the truth to be nasty and spicy for our enjoyment, even if it is a pack of lies. Visit my instagram page and see if the original picture is the same as the ones being circulated.
She affirmed that she is head strong and won’t let anything deter her, “Personally, I have moved on to more significant things, and I want you to join me. Do you know how many women suffer domestic violence in Nigeria? What can be done to stop it? Shouldn’t we try to revive the Nigerian homes, so we can groom happy and confident children? I am putting the weight of my voice behind domestic violence. What about you?
“Stop hitting, slapping, cursing, hurting your partner! Where is the love? Let’s restore the dignity of the society with the platform given to us by God. Use that platform of yours to build awareness for more important issues. She concluded.
Meanwhile, DailyPost had reported earlier that the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, had said on Friday that it would investigate the act.
Most analysts have said that Dike’s latest reaction to the tittle-tattle may have come as a result of the recent threat by NDLEA, just to dissuade them from further investigation on the matter.

SEE Why governors refuse to sign death warrants?

Capital punishment is not a stranger to the Nigerian Constitution neither is it considered weird by the ordinary Nigerian. A couple of weeks ago, however, the tide changed. President Goodluck Jonathan tasked the governors to sign the death warrants of condemned convicts in their respective domains. As if waiting just for this, the dam of debates on capital punishment broke swirling all in its path. Where stand the governors and is their inaction actually a factor to be considered while fathoming out an end to prison congestion in the land?
“The state governors sometimes find it difficult to sign death warrants in cases of capital punishment. I have been telling the governors that they must sign (death warrants), because that is the law.
The work we are doing has a very sweet part and a very ugly part and we must perform both. No matter how painful it is, it is part of their responsibilities.”
With these words, President Goodluck Jonathan on June 16 opened the floodgate to the deluge of debates that now swirl around the existence of capital punishment in the nation’s constitution, its continual desirability coupled with its effectiveness and otherwise. Maximum penalty is recognised in Nigeria’s grundnorm. The 1999 Constitution (as amended), also backs it.
Its section 33 (1) provides thus: “(1) Every person has a right to life, and no one shall be deprived intentionally of his life, save in execution of the sentence of a court in respect of a criminal offence of which he has been found guilty in Nigeria.
(2) A person shall not be regarded as having been deprived of his life in contravention of this section, if he dies as a result of the use, to such extent and in such circumstances as are permitted by law, of such force as is reasonably necessary – (a) For the defence of any person from unlawful violence or for the defence of property: (b) In order to effect a lawful arrest or to prevent the escape of a person lawfully detained; or (c) For the purpose of suppressing a riot, insurrection or mutiny.”
Popular awareness of Nigerians was first brought to capital punishment in the early 1970’s when the then military government of General Yakubu Gowon promulgated a decree authorising the public execution of people convicted of violent crimes especially armed robbery which was then gaining ground fast in a society hitherto alien to the vice of being violently dispossessed of one’s possession.
Among the celebrated instances of capital punishment and public execution were those of Ishola Oyenusi in 1973 and Babatunde Folorunsho. Both were notorious armed robbers in the early post civil war years of the country.
Public execution became the norm then. And it was unusual to hear Nigerians discussing a trip to the Bar Beach, where most of the public executions by firing squad was taking place, as if going for a picnic. Then, it was a public show and the citizens viewed them with apparent glee. This also applied to convicted coup plotters.
The pubic execution of 52 people following the botched coup d’état of 13 February, 1976 which claimed the lives of the head of state, General Murtala Ramat Mohammed and some other senior members of his administration including Kwara State governor, Colonel Ibrahim Taiwo. Public sentiment, however, started changing against capital punishment shortly after that.
It was alleged that some of the executed coup plotters were not guilty after all. The gradual and subtle aversion for this practice, however, came to an end in April 1985 with public execution of three convicted drug pushers by the General Muhamadu Buhari military regime which sentenced to death Bernard Ogedengbe, Bartholomew Owoh and Lawal Ojulope.
It was a sight many who watched the execution would not want to remember. A senior police officer on duty even reportedly slumped. Another enforcement of the capital punishment which left a sour taste in the mouth of Nigerians was the execution at the gallows of environmentalist and Ogoni rights defender, Ken Saro Wiwa and eight of his kin now known as the Ogoni 9 on 10 November, 1995.
They were executed by the General Sani Abacha led junta. Ever since, the public display of execution has been mellowed. With the enthronement of democracy on 29 May, 1999, the carrying out of execution both public and in the confines of the prisons nearly paled into insignificance. A notable exception is Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State who signed some death warrants which were enforced on June 24 when Chima Ejiofor, Daniel Nsofor, Osaremwinda Aigbonkhan and Richard Igagu, hitherto on death row, were hanged.
The June 16 pronouncement of the President has, however, brought the discourse on death sentence once more into the fore. Presently, no fewer than 98 countries have abolished death penalty from their statutes, while 57 nations (including Nigeria) practise it.
About 10 countries (also including Nigeria) have not carried out execution of condemned persons in the past 12 years. China ,Iran, North Korea, Yemen, United States, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Syria, Bangladesh, Somalia, Sudan, Palestinian, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Taiwan, Belarus, Japan, Iraq, Malaysia and Bahrain are currently practising the maximum penalty. China tops the list.
The crimes which attract death penalty in Nigeria today include armed robbery, murder and treason. Famous Nigerians who have been sentenced to death but still on the death row many months even years after the court verdict include Emeka Ezeugo, aka Rev. King, the Chief Security Officer (CSO) to the former Head of State, late Gen. Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, and an aide in the Chief M.K.O Abiola Campaign Organisation, Lateef Shofolahan.
It is believed that there are not less than 4, 000 condemned inmates awaiting execution in various prisons in the land.
The question now is: is the number high because of the state governors’ refusal to sign death warrants of condemned criminals since the advent of democracy in 1999 as implied by the President?
