Girl Bathed With Acid By Fiancé Has Passed Away

Published

on

In a rather sad tale, the 25-year-old Chika Egbo, the lady who was bathed with acid by her fiancé, David Sulaimon, in Ikotun, Lagos, for unknown reasons, has died at the Burns Unit of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, wee hours of Thursday.

Her death is coming six weeks after the November 5 attack that left her without the use of her nose, eyes and mouth – she was fed through a pipe, connected to her neck.

Chika’s father, Matthew, who was at pains at the loss of his daughter, stood at the front of the mortuary, looking forlorn as he relived her last moments amid sobs: “Her body has been transferred to the mortuary. She died around 1am today (Thursday).

“I looked at her about four days ago and realised her eyes had changed. The doctors later told me the eyes were condemned. She really suffered these past three days. I prayed to God that if it was His wish, God should take her life so that her suffering would cease. She suffered so much.

“The police have come to get the necessary details. The investigating police officer said he had to go to the court in order to prepare documents that will authorise an autopsy.”

While urging the police authorities to hasten up the process to enable him to take the body of his daughter for burial after the autopsy, Matthew revealed that his wife had not been informed about their daughter’s death. He said she would probably be informed today.

      What has religion got to do with a guy bathing his fiancee with acid ???? You are just been a fanatics with your choice of words. You cannot because of the action of a man or a group of people tag people who are practising a religion as terrorist. Majority of you people shouting wolve cries are hypocrites yet you claim to be the saint and the purest at heart. Your ability to do something evil has nothing to do with religion. Its your personalty and not the religion you practice.

      Mr. Hotman, what of the issue that happened of recent ” a pastor raped a female member and claimed he was praying for her so that she could concieve” or the one in which the pastor uses peoplefor rituals so that there will be an increase in population of the congregation. So what is your comment on that??????

      Am not here to advocate religion, just my own thought and point of view.
      Let’s wake up and be realistic. Resist been a religion fanatic and stop bn gullible.

      I am Ibrahim and proud to be a muslim

    For a sane guy to bath a fellow with acid is heartless not to talk of his fiancee he most definitely would have professed love to….this kind of people should be locked up and the key to their cell dropped into a bucket of sulfuric acid for one month and 15days then they can ask him to search for the key in that same bucket and free himself if he can…..shame on you heartless act

    It is unfortunate, we leave in the “end time”, holy book say: love of many shall wax cold, they will be lover of self and not lover of God, you see, the fanatics are lover of self not even lover of God. The Sulaimon in question doesn’t love his fiance, he only love what is in between her tight and also remember that in Nigeria LOVE don die “patapata”. The result is what you are seeing. A man that has not met GOD on one to one in any of the religion will not be able to do things of God nor obey the law of the most high. The way to holiness is their in holy Qur’an and Holy Bible but many are not searching for it nor trying to do them. Never mind, the creator of Heaven and Earth is coming again to give everyman his reward according to what each has done.

    Mr Hotman david suleimon is not a muslim.I’m sure even with the least education you should knw David is a christian name.Stop the buckpassing and get a life!I am very sure sum1 like you doesn’t even know the shortest verse in ur bible yet u go around advocating holier than thou attitude!Are you so blind that you ddint c d name of the culprit is David?You have soo much hatred for a religion that you know nothing about.Well!dat is ur loss.Now getting back to the issue that muslims r terrorist have you used ur infinite time of ignorance to ask urself if muslims were the terrorists that killed millions of south americans from the 16th century and took over their land?or was the british muslims when they came into africa and hurles millions of our forefathers to america of which 80percent died on d sea!?was adolf hitler a muslim whoo killed 6million jews?was it muslims that went to south america and killed the aborigines?ws it a muslim south africa that created apethide and killed soo many innocent lives?well to burst ur bubble hitler was a catholic,the spanish conquistadors had d backing of the church,the british were active members of the church,if not d cristianity dts in nigeria wdnt have been here.Now I know very very well that dese ppl acted on deir own and do not represent cristianity,so I dnt generalise and say all cristians r killers.Rev King burnt his church members for only God knows what.But he is only an atom’s weight of all xtians.deir is a difrence.So go get a life and stop been subjectively intolerant.
    And Yes I am a muslim.very fortunate to be.

    What wicked world we live in, a man killing his own fiance is so brutal.
    What on earth could be the case for this ungodly act, but no mater what the cause,
    it is not justifiable.. Even if the law may not punish this Suleman, God will definitely punish him..
    He can’t go Scot free..

As the number of recorded COVID-19 cases in Nigeria began to increase, these healthcare workers rose to the challenge and fought tirelessly to protect the lives of Nigerians impacted by the disease.

Considering the risks these healthcare workers face, there is a crucial need for adequate protective equipment for these brave frontline workers.

These PPEs comprise N95 respirators, surgical masks, examination gloves, face shields, medical gowns, no-touch thermometers, disposable aprons, heavy-duty rubber gloves, rubber boots, basic masks, disposable gloves, and hand sanitizers.

Since the first confirmed case of the disease in Nigeria reported in February, over 800 healthcare workers have contracted the disease. While Nigerians are encouraged to stay home where possible and practice social distancing, these healthcare workers are needed across the country in the continued fight against the disease.

Taking Care of Tomorrow’s Leaders Today – The itel, Lagos Food Bank Example

Published

on

Waking up to a special meal or choice gift is the best feeling ever. Hundreds of children in Mushin, mainland Lagos, had a filling taste of this feeling for the October 1 st celebrations. It’s an experience they will remember for a long time.

Being one of the most responsible corporate citizens around, celebrating Independence Day was always going to be on the radar for itel Mobile. To make this possible and memorable, the brand got to work in earnest. The focus of the work was picking the best way to commemorate the 60th independence anniversary of the most populous black nation on earth.

The efforts soon paid off through an impact-driven partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative. With the arrangement, both partners considered a couple of activities capable of affecting communities positively and bringing smiles to people’s faces in Lagos. At the end of the exercise, taking care of children, the leaders of tomorrow, in the commercial city secured the highest votes.

With the decision, itel Mobile set about making this happen. Not surprisingly, the decision was
influenced by giving children the means to excel and prepare them for leadership and nation-building, for them to enjoy better life. For the good of their immediate family, community and the Nigerian society.

Idiko, Mushin, a suburb of mainland Lagos, was chosen as the benefiting community. And the partners strategically reached out to the beneficiaries, children and families, with gifts of love, care, happiness and support made possible by the itel Love Always On CSR initiative.

Over 1,000 families benefited from the gesture as well as 600 children, and each one of them received food packages to celebrate Nigeria’s 60 th Independence Day commemoration.

Speaking on the event and itel’s Love Always On CSR Initiative, Oke Umurhohwo, itel’s Marketing Manager said, ‘We wanted to mark this year’s Independence Day celebrations differently, and that is why we did something so momentous for our children. Children are the backbone of any longstanding community, and as such, we are proud to be able to give back and support them on their journey as leaders of tomorrow and for a better life.’

To meet the demands of the memorable event, 30 volunteers joined the customer-centric brand and the Lagos-based NGO to share smiles, and to convey just how important it is to love and take care of today’s children who will ultimately become leaders of tomorrow.

With the thoughtful activity, there are insights for everyone, from the government to citizens, on partnerships that are capable of making life better for children. Indeed, itel Mobile and the Lagos Food Bank Initiative have offered a great template on bringing this to reality.
