    This is new. An Indian girl has developed what she claims are rape-proof underwear featuring a lock, a GPS alert for police and a video camera to record an attacker’s face.  Seenu Kumari, who was born into a poor family in Farrukhabad, Uttar Pradesh, spent less than £50 in creating the pants which comes with an emergency call button and a combination lock.
    girl develps 'rape-proof' underwearThe pink garment, which the teenager is hoping to take to the wider market, is also bulletproof and cannot be cut by a knife.
    Kumari said: ‘I have put a smart lock that won’t open till you key in the password. I have also installed an electronic device that is equipped with a GPS and calling facility.  ‘When somebody tries to molest a woman, this device will send out messages to relatives of the woman and also to the police.
    ‘The cop would be able to arrive at the crime scene following the GPS and foil the rape attempt.’
    She has also installed a video recorder so that it could capture and store the identity of the culprits.
    The teenager added: ‘A woman doesn’t need to wear this underwear always. She can wear it when she is travelling alone or if she finds a place unsafe.  ‘This can help save the woman from wicked men who would try to violate her dignity.’

    If a woman was to come under attack, a woman wearing the underwear could press a button on the device which would call a pre-set emergency number.
    The prototype for the underwear has been sent to the National Innovation Foundation in Allahabad for patenting.

    The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, has revealed why and how he developed a concept to live like an ordinary citizen despite his high status in the country. According to a report, the Ooni who revealed how he once boarded a bus in Lagos says he quite passionate about mankind – hence the decision to mingle with common people.

    Read the report shared below by the Ooni’s palace on behalf of the monarch.
    There Was a time I Boarded the BRT Bus In Lagos. The Reason Is Very Simple; I am Quite Passionate About Mankind, So I Developed a Concept to live like the Common Man At least Once Every Month Because I Believe We Did Not Come Into this World With Anything.
    I Would Drop Everything I Have to live like An Average Man Struggling In life. I Would Visit People Under the Bridge, Ride On a Motorcycle And Board a ‘Molue’ to Wherever I Was Going In Lagos. It Was Very Stressful But those times Were My Best Moments In life Because I Got to Relate With the Real People. I Saw their Sufferings And Felt their Plights.
    When I Ascended the throne, I Requested the Elders to Grant Me the Opportunity to Continue the Concept, but they Did Not Agree, So I Coined a New One that Would Go In line With the throne, Which Is Stopping My Convoy Whenever I get to a Particular Open Place With Moderate Crowd And Buy ‘Boli’ (Roasted Plantain) And ‘Dundu’ And Other Basic Food Items Because We Don’t Have to Forget Where We Are Coming From In life.
    Which Position Are you that Nobody Has Never Been In life? When you Serve Mankind, you Serve God. Our People Have Disconnected From the Less-Privileged And the Downtrodden.
    Each time I Stop, the People Are Always Happy And My Security Men Are Usually Afraid And they Caution Me to Get Into the Car But I Always Make them Realise that I Cannot Be Harmed By these People. They Are Just Excited And I am Always Happy to Be In their Midst. At times, I Would Not Come Out of the Car.
    But Most times, I Do Get Out to Shake People’s Hands and I would Buy From them What they’re Selling And Pay them Higher than What they Have Sold.
    I Will Be Sick if I Am Not With the Common People; It Has Always Been My Lifestyle.

    Saudi police say they have arrested everyone involved in a ‘gay wedding’ near the holy city of Mecca. Footage showing two men walking side-by-side while confetti is sprayed over their heads and music is played in the background went viral when it was uploaded last week.

    The duo can be seen proceeding down what appears to be an aisle while one of the men wears what looks like a wedding veil.
    Now police have announced they arrested those involved in the supposed wedding after a man attending a festival at a resort near Mecca reported the incident.
    In a statement posted on Twitter, Mecca Police explained: ‘The man said people attending the event were surprised when a few young men entered the place and tried to perform a “gay wedding scene”.’
    The statement, translated from Arabic by Step Feed, said one of the men in the ceremony was a ‘crossdresser’.

    It went on: ‘After the crossdresser and other people involved in the incident were identified, they were all arrested and their case will now be referred to the prosecution.’
    Homosexuality is punishable by severe punishment – ranging from lashings to death – in Saudi Arabia.

The journalist revealed how the dreaded criminal element called him on phone to threaten him over a negative news published about him.

    Read below what he shared on Facebook;
    I just remembered the day Don Wanny called me and told me that he was going to kill me for reporting negative new about him. He said, “Ojukwu, I think na you get that Facebook wey them carry dollar put for head?” and I answered “Yes, anything?” he asked again “why you dey post those things wey you they post about me?” and I answered again “I am a reporter and I report what ever I see” and he said henceforth, if I dear post anything negative about him that he will kill me, I think na OSPAC they give you mind, I will kill you and kill Maxwell, go tell Maxwell say na wetin I talk. I think you they challenge he said.
    I turned and looked at somebody I was standing with ( Chris Namoh) and I laughed, prophetically I replied him that he can’t kill me that instead I will see his end.
    Today, I will not fail to thank Almighty God, Jehovah, the creator of the whole universe, the Alpha and Omega, the Author and finisher of my life, He that began before the beginning etc, for accomplishing His words He put in my mouth (I will see your end).
    I am happy that I saw the end of Ejima Igwedibia aka Don Wanny, I am happy that I saw the demolition of his blood money mansion, I am happy that the people of ONELGA will sleep with there two eyes close and I am still hopeful that I will see the end of anyone that directly or indirectly has hand in the destruction of ONELGA and bringing us to the situation we found ourselves yesterday.

    I seize this Opportunity to thank my boss, Bar. Osi Olisa for accepting and bringing on board the security team (OSPAC) and working tirelessly to the achievement of the peace that has come to stay, even if at a point he was trying to make me angry, I still love and honour him because he is God sent. I also extend my thanks to my elder brother, my mentor, my referee, the Eze Uchi 1 of Ogbaland, Dr Ahiakwo Maxwell for his courage to champion this Course. Comr. Kingsley N. Ogwumike, the Omoku Youths President and leader of ONELGA Youths coalition, I thank God for making you who you are.
    I remember you pledge Omoku Youths Association for OSPAC to come on board. My appreciation also go to all the members of OSPAC who sincerely volunteered their selves to fight this course. God Almighty will reward you guys. My wife must not also be left out, Nwaiya nwaobi, she too much. mmmmmmhe has been a source of courage to me, imagine when you call a woman at the middle of the night and ask her to leave the house for safety reason and she will not complain, though at a point she was like saying I want to make her a widow. Still I appreciate her, it is not easy.
    ONELGA has come back to life.
