Record holder for "Most Breastmilk Donated," CBS DFW reports. Between
June 2011 and March 2012, The 28-year-old mother of one donated 11,115
ounces -- or 694 pounds -- of breastmilk to charity, according to
Guinness. By volume, that's about 87 gallons.
Richman told CBS
that after she gave birth in March 2011, she began pumping and storing
her milk, and quickly realized she was producing much more than her son
When two freezers were chock full of pumped milk,
Richman contacted the Mothers' Milk Bank of North Texas, an nonprofit

Her donations have fed "hundreds, and more
likely, thousands of premature babies across the United States," Amy

22 year old Onyeka Kingley Raphael
(pictured above) was found dead in the bottom of a swimming pool in the
home he worked as a domestic help. His body was removed early Saturday
morning from a house on Babatunde Asimi Street, Ogudu GRA. His family, suspecting foul play, has
petitioned the police, asking for a thorough investigation because when
Kingsley's body was removed by policemen from Ogudu police station, eye
witnesses said there were no visible injuries on his body except a
twisted neck, suggesting that the domestic worker may have been
strangled before being dumped in the pool.
What the family also found odd was that
the dinner Kingsley made for himself the night before was still on the
kitchen table, with his cap near it, and also the fact that the security
man who was home at the time of the incident said he didn't see or hear
anything. The family also claimed that Kingsley and his boss, a retired
accountant named Tunde Williams had a misunderstand a mont…

AT least two inmates of Federal Prisons
in the Ahaoda West Local Govrnment Area of Rivers State have been shot
dead by security operatives while attempting to escape from the prison.
Our correspondent learnt on Sunday that
the two inmates attempted to escape through the ceiling before they were
stopped by policemen.
It was further learnt that other inmates, who sensed that security agents had been alerted, immediately retreated.
The incident, which occurred at about 5pm on Saturday, caused panic on the prisons premises.
A prison source, who confided in our
correspondent, said, “An attempted jailbreak has occurred at Federal
Prisons in Ahoada on 27th October, 2012 at about 1700hrs.

to the scene and cordoned off the perimeter fence of the prison.

A 44-year-old mother of two who couldn't breastfeed her children has now
turned to a rather unorthodox way of fulfilling her maternal desire by
breastfeeding her 9-year-old daughter's pug, Spider, to make her feel
like a better mom.
In a frank interview, Terri Graham told the UK edition of Closer
magazine that she knows people might brand her a "freak" but she
insisted that her breastfeeding nourishes the family dog and makes her
feel like a better mother.
"I'm finally getting the breastfeeding experience I missed out on
with the children," Graham told Closer magazine. "Having Spider suckle
on my boob means I finally feel complete and a better mother."
"Her tongue tickles and I do feel her teeth but she latches on in a
way that they don't hurt me," she said when reporters asked her if
breastfeeding Spider hurt.
Graham, who is originally from California, said that the dog
developed a taste for breast milk after licking…

was discovered yesterday Friday October 26th in the wheel well, the undercarriage compartment
of an Arik Air aircraft, after it returned from a flight to New York,
One of the airline’s officials who spoke to ThisDay said the deceased
might have hidden himself in the wheel well for days and was crushed to
death while the flight was airborne to the JF Kennedy Airport, New York,
from the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
The official who spoke to THISDAY said the dead body was found during a
check on the aircraft panel as it was being prepared for another flight
and that the undercarriage compartment of the Airbus A340-500 is big
enough to accommodate a person, besides the space for the tyres.
"He probably might have hidden himself there some days and died while
the aircraft was on its way to New York. We found him when we were doing
checks on the panel; the aircraft probably came back with him dead,"…

Many of those who won
awards at the event were conspicuously absent, except for Inyanya,

The event witnessed
performances from various dance groups like Chidinma, Bez, Chuddy K,
Dammy Krane and Burna Boy. Dammy missed his steps during his performance
and almost caused a stir. Davido, EME All Star, and a moving vocal
performance of Great Nation by Timi Dakolo, besides hilarous moments from Omawumi and MI, who jointly compeered the event, added colour to the event.
It was quite touching to

We Have No Hand In Our Mum’s Death – Psquare React To Accusations Of Sacrificing Mum For Fame
news is strange! Even a whiff of the rumor, I never heard or read of
anywhere. For anyone to begin to insinuate that multi-platinum selling
duo of Peter and Paul Okoye, popularly known as Psquare sacrificed their
mother for whatever reason, is the height of irresponsibility and
madness. As far as we know, they’ve attained the height of success even
before their mom took ill and eventually passed away.
Here’s an excerpt of their reaction to the rumour:
How do you feel about your mum’ s death?

the Almighty God. Traditionally, we are supposed to bury her and not
the other way round. It is just that it happened so soon.. Indeed, her
death was a big blow to us.

interior is adorned with pink stitching everywhere from the steering

female students to have stuff among themselves.
The students, most of who confessed to being cultists, told journalists
