Nigerian buys S’African man G-Wagon to apologise for impregnating wife

A Nigerian man based in South Africa says he does not regret buying a luxury Mercedes-Benz G-class to a South African man as a token to apologise for impregnating his wife.

“I know what I did is wrong but I feel better he has accepted my gift. He accepted that his wife, my girlfriend, is pregnant and will soon give birth to my son. He was angry at first but when I presented the car to him his anger vanished,” said the man who identified herself as John.

One source close to the family of the woman who fell pregnant says she knew about the affair but never thought it would lead to a pregnancy. She says she is disappointed the husband accepted the Mercedes-Benz from the Nigerian national.

“Nigerian men will never take our men seriously. What kind of a man accepts a gift from a man who impregnated his wife? He will impregnate her again and buy the stupid husband another car. I am so disappointed,” she said.

When approached for a comment the husband said “it is wrong to say I am stupid. The point of the matter is we cannot reverse what happened. We sat down as men and sorted the issue. The Bible says we must forgive and forget. I have always dreamed of driving a G-wagon. Christmas came early for me and my family,” said the husband who didn’t want to be named.

“The baby will be born and I’ll take care of him as my own. If the father wants to take him to Nigeria I wouldn’t mind. I will give my wife the support she needs always. That is what marriage is all about. I love my wife and will not leave her because of a mere pregnancy,” he added.

My father in-law shares  bed with me and my husband – Wife tells divorce court


A 22-year-old housewife, Rashidat Adewuyi, told an Idi-Ogungun Customary Court in Ibadan on Friday that her father-in-law slept on the same bed with her and her husband whenever he visited them.

Rashidat made the statement on Friday when she testified in a divorce petition filed by her husband, Lukman Adewuyi.

She said her marriage of two years with Lukman had been characterised by agony and regrets due to interference by her father-in-law, who never allowed her to have free access to her husband.

According to Rashidat, her husband always takes permission from his father on every issue between her and her husband.

“Even he seeks his father’s permission before intercourse and my father-in-law always sleeps on the same bed with me and my husband whenever he visits.

“I used to dress or change my pants in the bathroom because my father-in-law would not leave our one-room apartment whenever I wanted to dress up,” she said.

Rashidat further said that her father-in-law instigated her husband to file the petition so as to have total control over him.

She urged the court to grant the prayer of the petitioner but that she be given responsibility to maintain the only child of the relationship.

Earlier, Lukman had pleaded with the court to dissolve the marriage on the ground that the respondent wanted to stab him to death.

He said his wife was in the habit of cursing him and threatening to kill him whenever they had a quarrel.

“There was a particular night that she brought out a knife and wanted to stab me because another woman called my cell phone number.

“It took the intervention of my landlord before she agreed not to stab me and such incident made me file a divorce suit,” Adewuyi said.

The President of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, and the court assessors, Aare Samotu and Ganiyu Alao, made efforts to prevail on the couple to resolve the matter amicably but failed.

The court thereafter ordered the dissolution of the marriage as the parties wished.

Balogun also ordered the plaintiff to pay N3,500 as monthly feeding allowance for the only child of the union and warned the parties to maintain the peace and stay away from each other.

Officials in Tucson, Arizona, say that they responded to reports of smoke and flames coming from a mobile home in the Arizona city where a man had been using a blowtorch to remove spiderwebs from underneath his mobile home.

All told, it took eleven minutes for the 23 fire fighters who responded to put out the blaze in the mobile home.

There were no other injuries reported aside from those of the elderly woman who was carried out.

The total sustained damage to the mobile home from the fire, which is still being investigated by officials, is yet to be determined by investigators.

US oldest jewel thief ‘retires’ from crime at 87


An 87-year-old woman – once dubbed America’s most successful jewel thief – has vowed to give up a seven-decade life of crime after being busted for stealing from a local Walmart.

Doris Payne, who is reputed to have stolen more than $2m during a career that reached from Slab Fork, West Virginia, to Monte Carlo and even Tokyo, claimed her life of light-fingered larceny was over after being charged with the theft of $86.22 worth of electronics and groceries.

“Don’t come back, Ms Payne,” Chamblee Municipal Court Judge Angela Duncan told Ms Payne, according to US media.

Payne, who pleaded guilty to a charge of shoplifting responded: “I won’t.”

The hearing on Monday in Georgia marked the latest twist in a life of crime that began more than 70 years ago in a dirt poor upbringing in West Virginia.

A 2013 documentary about her life, The Life & Crimes of Doris Payne, made by Kirk Marcolina and Matthew Pond, suggests that her first thefts were performed in order to help her mother, who was Native American and was abused by her father, who was African American. She told one interviewer she sold the items from one of those first thefts to allow her mother leave her unhappy marriage.

“I don’t have any regrets about stealing jewellery. I regret getting caught,” she says in the film. A movie of her life, in which she was to be played by Halle Berry, was talked of but apparently progressed no further.

Payne, who had been under house arrest at the time she carried out the shoplifting in Walmart and was even wearing an ankle monitor, reputedly never utilised anything more than sleight of hand, a smart handbag and a designer outfit to carry out her crimes. No one was ever hurt. Her rap sheet – or criminal record – is said to stretch to 20 pages in the US alone.

Payne was detained by Milwaukee police in 1965 

Her previous crime had been the attempted theft of a $2,000 necklace from the Von Maur store in Atlanta’s Perimeter Mall last year. Officials said over the years she had used up to 20 aliases and multiple Social Security numbers.

Ms Payne did not respond to a request for comment. However, Marissa Goldberg, Payne’s lawyer told The Independent that her client’s guilty plea had cleared the charges against her. “She is now free to get on with her life and that is what she wants to do,” she said.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, in the early years of her life of crime, Payne, who was born in October 1930 and was the youngest of six children, made use of Town and Country magazine to help her identify jewellery that was valuable and worth of her attention.

One of Payne’s most celebrated thefts took place in the 1970s when she stole a 10-carat diamond ring valued at more than $500,000 from the Cartier store in Monte Carlo. She had reportedly been inspired to carry out the theft after seeing To Catch a Thief, Alfred Hitchcock’s 1955 romantic comedy starring Grace Kelly and Cary Grant.

She was caught and held but avoided charges.

Woman who wants to marry her son’s friend sent to prison


A female teacher with the Gombe Local Education Authority has been remanded in prison custody over her planned marriage to the friend of her first son.

Hussaina Abba, who teaches Arabic at a primary school in Gombe, earlier sued her late husband’s siblings and her children before a court for opposing her planned marriage.

She told the area court sitting at Idi Quarters that her late husband’s younger siblings – Aliyu Mohammed and Abdullahi Bello – were opposed to her planned marriage simply because the groom is a friend and classmate of her first son.

Hussaina told the court that the duo refused to take custody of six out of the 11 children left behind by their late elder brother to allow her to marry the man.

She said since the death of her husband years ago, she did not receive any marriage proposal until the arrival of the man, who she later learned was a friend to her first son.

She said she agreed to the young man’s marriage proposal because of the love and genuine care he had shown to her.

However, the plaintiffs told the court that she refused their earlier offer to take custody of the children, but only changed her position now that she wants to re-marry a man that is an age mate and friend of her son.

They also told the court that they objected to the marriage because the man is of questionable character.

Also, her eldest son, Mohammed Bello Adamu, who represented his siblings at the court, opposed the planned marriage between his mother and his friend.

He said there was a time the same man threatened to kill the younger sister of his mother’s friend for refusing to sleep with him.

He added that the man must have cast a spell on his mother, hence her strange behaviour and being adamant to marry him despite opposition from various quarters.


On her part, the Hussaina said she had already collected N15,000 as part payment of the dowry from the suitor, Abdussalam Abdulkadir.

“Since this marriage is not against any law, I love him and want to marry him because he is the only man that proposed to marry me since the death of my husband years ago. Therefore I will not shelve my planned marriage because of objection from my children or anyone else,” she told the court.

When asked by the court if the allegations against him were true, Abdulkadir answered in the affirmative. He however said that he still loves the mother of his onetime classmate and is ready to marry her.

The presiding judge, Malam Saleh Jibrin, ordered that both Hussaina and Abdulkadir be remanded in prison custody in order to dispel the alleged charm. He adjourned the matter to September 26 for continuation of hearing.
