Elderly Woman Dies In Church After Giving Testimony.
_
_
A hairdresser died in the church immediately after giving testimonies before the congregation at Universal Church of God.
.
The deceased, simply identified as Mpofu attended a church service at Bulawayo area of Zimbabwe where she gave a testimony thanking God for the wonders He had done in her life.
.
According to reports by B-metro, Mpofu slumped immediately after sharing her testimony and died in the church.
.
A close relative who asked for anonymity told the media that they were very disappointed and confused as they were not sure if the testimony was the reason behind Mpofu’s death. “It is very sad that our family member died this way. She was someone who was a dedicated church member which now turns to be a surprise that she died in the house which she thought was the safest,” said the relative. “What is more surprising is when all this happened the church did not notify us that she had collapsed choosing to keep her for six hours. We do not know why they kept her in church when they were aware that her condition was critical, that is why we are suspecting foul play,” he continued.
.
The deceased’s husband left mourners in shock when he asked all church members to leave the funeral.
.
It was clear that he wanted nothing to do with Universal Church members and their pastors.
.
A pastor who declined to be named said they did not bother attending the funeral as they were not on good terms with Mpofu’s family. Mpofu was buried on Monday.

“People Keep Demanding From Us Celebrities & Don’t Care How We Meet Their Demands” - Actress #FolukeDaramola.
_
_
In a chat with Punch Saturday Beats, star actress, Foluke Daramola - Salako, who recently turned 40, talks about living in Nigeria.
.
Talking about living in Nigeria the actress says it’s difficult task remaining sane in a country like Nigeria and she gave her reasons. “The turbulent thing I have faced especially in a place like Nigeria is that we are practically under pressure as celebrities. People keep demanding things from us and they don’t care how we meet their demands. They put a lot of pressure on me. Being psychologically and emotionally stable in Nigeria for over 40 years has not been an easy task. People see the glamour on the television screen and believe that is how we live in reality. Being psychologically stable despite all odds like living up to expectation, the pressure of living the way you want to and also even differentiating reality from showbiz has not been easy. Those are my turbulent times. A good thing about being a celebrity, however, is that when you are known, you are celebrated and it opens doors for you. Being known gives you a voice when others are struggling to get a voice.”
.
Talking her previous marriage, She said, “Another turbulent time for me was when I had to leave my first marriage. I would say I left the marriage as a shadow of myself. When I left that marriage, I felt less than myself and I felt the world had come to an end. That was a time in my life that was very turbulent. What I dread most in my life is to have a broken home and I experienced it with my first marriage. So I would say that was a time in my life that was really turbulent. But a very lovely and good time in my life was when I met the man I am married to. It was a wonderful time in my life.”

Missing School Girls: Dapchi Residents Stone Yobe Governor’s Convoy.
_
_
The visit of Yobe State Governor, Ibrahim Gaidam, to Dapchi was cut short as angry residents of the town pelted his convoy with stones, Punchng reports.
.
Boko Haram members had stormed Government Girls Technical College in Dapchi on Monday, but the schoolgirls were said to have fled into the bushes in the area.  While some of the girls had been returning to the school, 46 were said to be missing.
.
The crowd, still at a loss over the whereabouts of the missing schoolgirls, showed their disgust to the governor on Thursday, by throwing stones at his convoy, injuring some of his aides, as well as government officials.
.
The  state  government  had  issued a late night statement on Wednesday, announcing that some of the schoolgirls were rescued. The government in another statement on Thursday, however, said its initial statement was false.
.
The FG says the number of missing pupils has become a mystery due to the nature of the incident. The Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said this when he visited Dapchi, Yobe State.
.
He said when the terrorists were approaching the school, the principal asked the pupils to run to safety, adding that most of the pupils returned to school the following day, but when a roll-call was conducted, it was discovered that same were yet to return.
.
He  said  it  was  difficult  to  determine  who was missing because the incident happened at night.  Mohammed said, “Since the incident happened, the army and other security agencies have swung into action and have been combing every nook and cranny.
.
So far, we cannot say the number of people that are missing because people are still reporting or calling that they are safe.  We will need a few more days so we can give an exact figure of those missing."

My Son Was Mistakenly Killed By A Doctor; Actress Anunobi Reveals.
_
_
Veteran Nollywood actress, has revealed that her 15-year-old son, Raymond Ekwu, was mistakenly killed by a doctor.
.
She made the revelation while explaining why she decided to celebrate his posthumous birthday with the motherless babies and why she decided to give some of his personal effects to young inmates at the Special Correctional Centre for the Boys.
.
In a chat with Saturday Beats, the actress said: "I have not removed my mourning clothes, neither have I opened my hair since the death of my son. I have only been wearing white since his demise and the reason I have maintained this is because my son was a good boy to me; but he was mistakenly killed by the doctor.
.
My son was not supposed to die. He was a very wonderful child. I decided to honour him by marking his 16th birthday posthumously the way we normally do. During our birthdays, we usually visited the motherless babies and show them love by donating some clothes and food to them.
.
This year would not be any different from the previous ones we have celebrated. I am going to do it the way my son and I had always done it and I would give out some of his personal effects.
.
Normally, when someone dies, you do not touch their things for about a year. For instance, if a man’s wife dies he is not expected to touch her things or dispose of them till after a year.
.
Initially, I decided to do the same thing but I later changed my mind and that is why I donated some of his things to a government-owned motherless babies’ home and also to the boys at the Special Correctional Centre for the Boys. I am doing this because I am a humanitarian and to let the motherless babies know that we love them.”
