Not only did Sakirat Attah burn her son's face with hot iron after the neighbour reported her son to her, she also used a broken bottle to stab young Daniel in the head. You can see the photo above. How you can do this to your own child is beyond me.
Sakirat took her son into their one room apartment after finding out what he did, locked the door, lit a stove, put an iron spoon on it to get hot and used it to burn his face and hands as punishment. And when that wasn't enough, she broke a bottle and stabbed him in the head, leaving a deep cut. Daniel later told police he stole the soup because he was hungry.
Neighbours who heard the little boy screaming for help entered the room and rescued him from the mother. They rushed him to the hospital and called the police on the mum.
Shakirat Attah has been charged before an Igbosere Magistrate's Court in Lagos on a one count charge of assaulting a minor occasioning bodily harm. She's currently in Kirikiri Prison, pending when she fulfills her bail conditions.
I may be their mother because I brought them into the world. I may have the privilege to raise them up to adult age. But you know, I cannot tell them what to do or follow at a certain age. Besides, they are Americans who have their own minds. If they graduate from college and decide to follow my footsteps, it's their own calling. If I can predict, they wouldn't want to do what I do because they have better opportunities and better futures than mine. All I do now is to secure a better future for them so they don't have to go through what I went through in my life time. Mind you, I tell my daughters everything I do. I even told them about this project, the nature of it, but I could not show them because they are not up to 18 yet. I just had to prepare them in case they run into it on the Internet, they won't be shocked. So don't worry about my daughters, they are the best children any mother could ever ask for and I thank God for the gift.
Speaking to NET in a recent interview, the actor, model, presenter and musician says he's not "just gonna take off my dreads for the regular pay check. The only reason I'll take off my dreadlocks is if I'm paid, am talking about millions because it took me three years and a lot of discipline, dedication, money to make my hair look this different and unique".
Mercy Johnson, Oge Okoye, Queen Nwokoye, Chika Ike, Ebube Nwagbo and many others have been paid millions in the past to shave their hair for a role in a movie, hopefully Uti will get his own million. But we'll like to see Ini Edo or Genevieve Nnaji bald too.

Here is what Cossy had to say about her conservative cover look – “I embrace every aspect of me, as a business woman I look good in corporates and during work hours I am always well dressed with my boobs covered up. When it is time to play I love bustiers, they always look cute, sexy and do wonders to my cleavage.“
A thank you message from Mercy Johnson Okojie to her fans;
Mercy is also back to business, she is on location with director and producer, Elvis Chucks.‘I want to say thank you to the fans, friends, colleagues and producers who were there for me. Many of them proved to be friends on and off work. Many adjusted their schedules for me and sent in their greetings during the child dedication. I resumed work this week with grateful heart and understanding that I am here because God through the help of people made it possible. Or how could I explain the overwhelming votes I got at AMVCA despite been away and inactivity on social media? How could I explain the numbers of producers and scripts waiting for my return? How could I explain the overwhelming love and gifts while I was away? I am very grateful and here to say a big thank you to everyone who played a role and those who as much as had good wishes in their hearts. Thank you and God bless you’

According to a report from The Net, Dbanj has signed his friend-turned-foe-turned-friend Oluwadamilare Okulaja better known to the public as Durella.
The move might however not come as a surprise to everyone, considering that Banger Lee (that’s D’banj’s new nickname by the way) and the ‘King of the Zanga’ Durella recently settled their differences. Some weeks back, D’banj and his DB Records crew released a single ‘Ibadi e‘ off their compilation album (D’ King’s Men) which featured a verse from Durella.
Fans were very excited to see the pair had reunited after a very long and well publicized fall out between the pop acts.
D’banj is said to have bought bought out Durella’s contract from his present record labelIKONIC Music where the Pop act’s career has been in limbo since he signed in mid-2011 after ending his three-year contract with TC Records.
The award-winning musical group, Camp Mulla has been hit by break-up virus.
The crew has been on shaky ground for a while now as two of its core members, TheeMcAfrica (formerly Taio Tripper) & Miss Karun (who left for university in the USA) left the group to pursue solo careers.
The group has been nominated for the Headies, MOBO’s, MTV Europe Music Awards, Kora Awards, Channel O Music Video Awards, BET Awards, BEFFTA Awards and won 2 Kenyan Chaguo La Teeniez Awards.
Recently at the MTV Base All Stars party held in South Africa, two members of the group didn’t show up at the career-making performance, while a new singer, Tiri, replacing Miss Karun in the line-up. Seems Miss Karun has already been replaced.
A man, believed to be a serving soldier, was attacked and beheaded with a machete in broad day light this afternoon in Woolwich, South London by two men in what is suspected to be a terror attack.
The soldier was attacked with knives and meat cleavers following a car crash. Two black men in a blue Vauxhall car rammed into the soldier on John Wilson Street, then jumped out of their car and started attacking him with meat cleavers. An eye witness said the attackers were "chopping this guy to pieces, literally hacking at something like it was a piece of meat".
It is claimed that the men shouted 'Allahu Akbar', which means God is great in Arabic before attacking. After the attack, the men then waited for about 20 minutes for police to show up and then tried to attack the officers. They were shot by police. One (or both) of them is believed to be alive.
