In this digital era, we cannot keep our hands and our eyes off our phone, updating the world about our daily routine (and getting mutual updates too!) Know why we do so? We do it because all of us fear that we may miss something important.
But, for once look around you; look at the people who matter to you. Are you up-to-date about what they have been doing and how they have been feeling? Well, at least happy couples are. Such couples talk about their lives in person and not just digitally. If you too want to get a taste of their secret potion, then read on!

#1. Unforgettable embarrassing moments
Most couples get caught up in their routine lives and get busy with running errands and worrying about work. But, there are also those who sit back and relax by reminiscing their good old days, especially embarrassing moments for a hearty laugh! So, talking about a slip in the puddle, a fashion blunder or a brain freeze at an unexpected moment can lighten up your relationship!

#2. Politics and social affairs
Talk about (mind you, do not debate!) the recently concluded Elections or anything besides politics that your partner takes interest in. Such discussions help you understand each other’s perception and you learn something new you otherwise may not know. Also, there is nothing to be alarmed about if your views contradict. After all, you don’t always have to have a shared opinion.

#3. Childhood
Another fun conversation a happy couple hold, is about their childhood days. You too can ask about your partner’s childhood. Ask them if they are still in touch with their kindergarten friends? Did he/she make friends easily or were too shy? Any achievement in the school that they are proud of? What sports did they play? Were they ever caught causing any trouble in the school? This way you get an insight into the formative years of their life.

#4. Past relationships
Do not be puzzled just because it is a touchy subject! Some couples are open to acknowledging each other’s past. It is also a subtle reminder of who they would have been with, had they not found each other. If you too want to talk about your past relationship, make sure you do so without judging or comparing your current partner with your ex. After all, some sparks can cause fire!

#5. Insecurities and struggles
Each one of us has a set of insecurities that send the shivers down our spines. But, there is nothing to be ashamed of, especially from your partner. Happy couples discuss it as they want to battle their fears without the risk of being judged. If there are relationship insecurities, it is always better to let them know. If it is about career, an objective point of view can always help. The idea is to take it out, rather than bottling it up.

#6. Family
To know your partner’s relationship with his/her family is like a window to your life with him/her after your marriage. Questions like ‘who they are close to’, ‘what do their siblings mean to them’, ‘how do they handle power struggle at home’ and ‘does they like family gathering or function’ will give you an insight into how much a family man/woman they are.

#7. Movies and sitcoms
Entertainment, entertainment, entertainment! How well do you entertain each other with movies and TV shows? As a couple, your choices should be aligned so as to enjoy each other’s company, especially when you are making time to watch something together. Discuss about your like/dislikes and then go stream your favourite movie or sitcoms! Easy-peasy?

We have enlisted what a few things that a happy couples do talk about, but it is time for you to tell us about the talks you have with your significant other. Tell us, we are all ears!

Lagos Policemen Brutalise PUNCH Journalists For Covering #EndSARS Protest

Lagos Policemen Brutalise PUNCH Journalists For Covering #EndSARS Protest

Two PUNCH journalists, Femi Dawodu and Segun Odunayo, were on Wednesday brutalised by policemen guarding the Lagos State House of Assembly in Ikeja.

The duo had gone to cover events around the Alausa area, a major demonstration ground of the #EndSARS protesters calling for a total overhaul of the Nigeria Police Force.

According to the PUNCH, both Odunayo and Dawodu were recording a live video of activities in the area when the policemen accosted them and ordered them to stop the recording.

After showing the policemen their identity cards, indicating that they are journalists covering #EndSARS protests and monitoring compliance with the government-imposed curfew, the policemen became annoyed and pounced on them.

Odunayo said the policemen tortured them for four hours, adding that they stripped them of their clothes, laid them on the floor, beat them with a stick and guns, and took a video recording of them while torturing them at the Lagos State House of Assembly.

Odunayo said, “Femi and I were at the Secretariat in Alausa around 7 am and were doing a live video of the activities going on in the area. We were heading back to the expressway when a group of armed policemen accosted us at the Lagos State House of Assembly roundabout and immediately collected our phones. We showed them our ID cards, but they refused to let us go.

“What got the policemen annoyed was that we saw them using a stick and a rubber to beat a young man, and during the live video, they heard me saying that they were beating someone. So, after they arrested us, they tortured us and demanded that we should do another live video denying the statement, but we refused.

“Each Time we refused, they slapped us, used a stick to beat us, used the butt of their guns to hit our heads and bodies after stripping us of our clothes. All they wanted was for us to do another live broadcast to claim that we lied and we didn’t because we told the truth.”

Dawodu said it took the intervention of the state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi before they were released at the Alausa Police Station, adding that before their release, the policemen took their details, including their addresses, took a video record of them and threatened to go after them if any negative report was published about what happened.

He said, “The policemen were transferring the aggression of what is happening regarding the #EndSARS protest on us. They later took us to the Divisional Police Station in Alausa, and if not for the DPO, the policemen guarding the LSHA that arrested us would have done more grievous things to us.

“The PPRO and the DPO later spoke with them, and we were released.

“But despite his intervention, we were told to write statements. They collected our details, address, took video recordings of us making false statements during the torture, and threatened to use it to blackmail and go after us if we end up doing any bad report against them.”
