Why You Should Buy YouTube Views Cheap

A 38-year-old woman, identified as Mrs. Torugbene-Ere Aboh, escaped death by the whiskers, following a violent attack on her by a shark at Forcados River in Oboro Community, Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State.

Vanguard gathered that the woman, a mother of five, who was taking her bath in the overflowing river, had gone for a three-day fasting programme in a church in the community, when she was attacked by the shark in the river.

Narrating her ordeal, Mrs Aboh, said: “Shortly after I started bathing, I felt a sharp cut on my right leg and I screamed for help. The screaming drew the attention of my brethren who were also in the river and they came to my rescue.

“I was immediately taken to a nearby patent medicine shop, where I was given 12 stitches before I was later taken by my husband, to a private clinic at Bomadi, for proper medical treatment.”

    Yes they’re sharks in Nigeria but never in the river (fresh waters). Sharks can only be found in salt waters like the ocean. I have personaly sited a shark in takwa bay in lagos and so many people have given their experiences on sharks along the beach shore lines but never have I heard of shark in inland waters (rivers). Never ! The story is fake.

    Kash u r right and wrong at d same time. As a zoologist( parasitology major) i can assure u dat even though sharks r not commonly known to be in fresh water, species of sharks like d bull shark and lemon shark av been observed severally in fresh water e.g. Rivers in d States in time past especially when there has been a flood and d water in d river rises to an extent capable of accomodatimg d shark. D great whites r an exception as they r mostly salt water species. U cant doubt her story until investigations confirm s story. D bites on her legs can be used to clarify d situation since their dentition print wud be shown in d injuries.

    First of all. The area forcados river in burutu is an area closed to the atlantic ocean where salt water also run through. Second, we are in a flood period when all kinds of water and animals move from one location to the other. So the story can be true.

    Shark will neva bite nd live its prey, I dives, bite and hold it prey until a sizable chunk of flesh is removed. A crab or other canivour fish must hav bitten her. Cuz if truly its a shark, before she called for help, d shark wit it taste for blood wud hav immidaitly come bck to finish her off. So its not a shark. Nd above all shark cannot be found on fresh waters. Bio 101

    2 de jokers, lack of informatn plays a major role in ur lives. Jst so u knw, sharks could be in fresh water and salt water. Some sharks attack cos of hunger coupled wid de facts dey see a movin object. It doesn’t mean all sharks like human flesh. Some are resistant to human flesh.

“Oke Wasn’t Killed By Stray Bullet, He Was Stabbed By Thugs” – Brother Claims



“Oke Wasn’t Killed By Stray Bullet, He Was Stabbed By Thugs” - Brother Claims


Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
