A Young Nigerian lady has written to Popular Blogger and Psychologist, Joro to reveal how she still gets “beatings” from her parents at her age.
Read what she wrote below;
Good Morning bro joro, please I need you to post this as soon as possible and please hide my identity. I’m a Yoruba lady, 22 years but will be 23 this year.
My parents beat me up at any slight mistake, keep malice with me after and still expect me to beg. I don’t have problem with the begging cos they are my parents. I can remember the one that happened in 2016 with my mum. I just graduated from school and wanted to learn a voc.
I chose smth, she said no that i have to learn smth else. I said i’m now a graduate and at least I should be given the opportunity to choose a trade to learn.
She stopped cooking my food separately after they are done with theirs. Then one day she decided she’s not giving me food again and i told her it is not possible that am i not her daughter and we started exchanging words and she beat me blue black.
I couldn’t take the beating again and i collected the cane from her. And she started shouting and crying that I’m the one beating her, I couldnt sleep at home that day, slept outside. She reported me to people in the church, they caled me and I explained my part, but you know an adult can’t lie.
I was asked to beg and I did. So many similar cases took place after then. Now fast forward to 2018, I finished my service Dec 2017 so I’m still at home applying to everywhere applicable. On Thursday at night, I was in the sitting room only for me to see my dad with cane in front of me and before I could say anything, he started beating me. He said I didn’t tell my siblings to put off the gen cos we use 2hrs at night and we used 2 hours and some mins that day. So because of that I deserve to be beaten.
The following day which was a friday, nepa restored the light so I put on the necessary things but didn’t go to his room to put on anything. Only for him to tell my sister to remove all my appliances from the socket that I shouldn’t charge in this house because I didn’t put on the light and TV in his room. Throughout that day, he didn’t talk to me. So I knew another round of malice is on it’s way.
On Saturday morning which was yesterday, I carried my bag and told them I’m going back to where I served. They were like did I discuss it with them before, I said no, but they knew i’ll still go back cos my loads are still there. My father gave me tfare and I left the house.
Only for my fiance to call me to go back to the house, but I said no, I’m going cos he doesn’t know what I’ll go through, I explained to him and he claims to understand but I don’t think he does, I sha entered the bus and started traveling, when I got to half the journey, my fiance’s mother called me to please go back home and apologize, for what again, I’m the one that’s hurt right now, but I didn’t want to argue with her, and I said okay. I came down from the bus and entered the one going home. I got home and I apologized, though they’re still keeping malice with me and giving me attitude.
Joronation, Please I just want to know if this is how all youths are been treated or I’m the one with a problem cos the thing is driving me crazy with no one to hear me out, as an adult cannot lie. Thank you.
Man United and Arsenal Go Head To Head In The Premier League on DStv
It’s another big weekend for Manchester United as they face Arsenal in the English Premier League on Sunday November 1, 2020.
Still battling with a wobbly start to the new season, the Red Devils will be looking forward to ending their home games woes as they face the Gunners at the Old Trafford in the Super Sunday match.
United head into the match under intense pressure to regain fans’ confidence and get its Premier League campaign on track after an unimpressive home run. They have won their last 10 away games in all competitions but none of their last five at home.
It is United’s worst start to a season at Old Trafford in the last 48 years.
The once dreaded Old Trafford where opponents visit with their hearts in their mouths is fast becoming a common ground after United suffered 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace, 6-1 to Tottenham and refused to score a goal against the Blues last weekend. It is left to be seen whether Arsenal will come close to repeating the 6-1 plummeting of United by its North London rivals.
Despite losing 1-0 to Leicester City on Monday night, the Gunners boss, Mikel Arteta, will be boosted by the fact that his side has a head to head advantage over United in their last three encounters.
The head to head record appears to favour Arsenal having won two and drawn one of the duo's last three league meetings while United’s last win against Arsenal was in the FA Cup in 2019.
Arsenal presently at 10th place on nine points travel to Old Trafford on Sunday without Gabriel Martinelli, Pablo Mari, Rob Holding, Calum Chambers have all been ruled out with injury. David Luiz who picked up a muscular injury against Leicester is also unsure for the game yet.
United with seven points sits at 15th place will also be without Anthony Martial still serving his domestic suspension, while Eric Bailly, Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones are all ruled out with injury.
While we look forward to the epic battle at Old Trafford this weekend live on DStv, we cannot lose sight of matches from the 18 other Premier League clubs that will all be in action this weekend. The games will also be live on
SuperSport Premier League for all DStv customers.
Kwara Governor, Abdulrazaq Declares 24-hour Curfew
Following the outbreak of violence in some quarters of the State, Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State has declared a 24-hour Curfew on the state starting on Saturday.
Governor Abdulrazaq made this known in a statewide broadcast on Friday night.
Recall that on Friday some residents of Ilorin, the Kwara State capital stormed the warehouses where the government stored COVID-19 palliatives expected to be distributed to citizens.

The warehouses, located at the cargo warehouse of the International airport in Ilorin as well as the agro-mall located in the Sango area of the state were totally ransacked as residents struggled to pack as much food items as they could.
Abdulrazaq said, “Lives are being threatened. Businesses are being looted. Public properties have been targeted. This is unacceptable. It is not who we are.
“To curb these acts of criminalities, I hereby declare a 24-hour curfew in Ilorin metropolis from midnight today October 23rd, 2020. This is in line with Sections 1, 2, and 4 of the Public Order Act Chapter 382 Laws of Federation of Nigeria 2004.
“People are urged to stay indoors in compliance with this curfew. This will be reviewed as we watch developments.
“Our observation is that what has happened today is not a protest, it cannot be defended under any guide, it was a pure act of criminality as some people are hiding under the guise of nationwide 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.”
