How many Nigerians are in Italian jails?

Published

on

We refer to your mail of December 7, 2021 wherein you said to us that: ‘‘The Embassy, has been doing all it could to attend to Nigerians in Italian jails and ensure fair justice and adequate treatment within the limits of law.’’ Arising from this, we request for a compendium of Nigerians in Italian jails, that is, the actual numbers, the jails they are being held and charges against these Nigerians.

We are interested in this number because there are allegations that these Nigerians, totalling over 4,000 in Italian jails have been locked up over a great period of time without access to their families, access to legal representation and fair hearing.

While we appreciate your passion in working to get our people illegally clamped in jails in Italy, we must remind you that there is no need to throw a blanket of privacy and personal data issues over this matter.

These are Nigerians, not soldiers of war captured in battle. They have international passports and they have families in throes of hunger, lack and deprivation because their breadwinners are in jail over charges that have not been proven. They are innocent because the system has not found them guilty.

BBNaija 7: Which ships are sailing and which ones will sink in due time?

Published

on

theheute-

This year, we’ve seen so many ships being formed right away and some of us are wondering if it’s real or it’s just a show.

This ship has many awwn moments and they looked so cute together. They often cuddled and even kissed but it was a shaky toxic ship full of many fights and arguments.

This ship led to her eventual disqualification. Beauty didn’t want him to dance with most women, especially Chomzy. She felt it was disrespectful but Groovy didn’t see it that way, and even though he tried to avoid Chomzy, she still found him. This made Beauty go into a jealous rage and lead to her disqualification.

Reminds us of someone who name started with an E…but I digress.

Will it sail after the house? Our verdict is no it won’t.

We do not like this ship. It feels like something we’ve watched before and didn’t enjoy. Cue Nengi and Ozo and Kiddwaya and Erica. It feels scripted. Even though Shegz says all the right words, the ship just feels very inorganic and forced.

Will they sail after the house? Nooo.

A knacking ship. These two people can’t keep their hands off themselves.

They’ve had sex, actually penetrative intercourse, many times.

We think they genuinely like each other, but the pressures of people’s opinions might sink the ship. Khalid told Big Brother that he really likes her and she seems to like him too.

Will they sail after the house? Maybe.

As we speak, Allyson is scanning for other men. She complained to Big Brother that he is acting like an old man.

Will they sail after the house? Even inside the house, they won’t sail if he doesn’t give her some excitement.

We are still looking at other ships and paper boats developing and we will update you in due time.

In a time when the country is experiencing economic, security, financial and political crisis, her win shines as a beacon of hope – something to make Nigerians smile.

When it comes to sports, women faced sexism. They had to fight to compete in sports and were allowed in the 1900s. Black people were only allowed to compete in sports in 1940s.

How women dressed before [Worldhistory]

Women were asked to wear only modest items of clothing like petticoats so that they would not distract the men. Can you imagine playing tennis in a full skirt and long sleeves?

It wasn’t until the 1960s that they began to wear more modern attire. This coincides with sport brands like Puma and Adidas becoming popular.

But things aren’t the same anymore, women wear light and loose clothing to compete in sports.

Amusan’s style has always been bold, usually wearing her natural hair and a very bold choice of lipstick. She is also fond of a lot of jewellery, bracelets, anklets, necklace and piercings.

For her World Championship game, she made cornrows with extensions, and had her nails done and coated in light purple.

That sort of look was popular during the 2022 World championship, with women, mostly the black women, laying their wig in elaborate colours, making colourful and long nails not to mention running with full-on makeup.

Her win and those of many other women demolish stereotypes and is a testament that being feminine and beautiful doesn’t mean you can’t be sporty and excellent.

According to the Gospel singer, some trusted friends and colleagues in the gospel industry connived with some Ghanaian bloggers to collapse her first marriage with Prophet Prince Elisha Osei.

I prayed to God to allow my accusers to taste what I experienced when my marriage collapsed. Now, they have regretted their evil plans because what they did pushed me to Mr Adorye . Sometimes our troubles come in disguise; they come in pain, and when you are able to withstand it, what follows is joy,” she told Emelia Brobbey on her Okukuseku Talk Show.

She continued that “I am grateful to God for the spirit of boldness and a mother who had my back, if not, I might have run from one radio station to another out of depression…my mother encouraged me.

“She said that a respectable man somewhere might be looking for a lady like me as a wife. She added that my time will come reason why I shouldn’t pay attention to those who mocked me,” Empress Gifty tearfully said.
