• Three silent reasons why women will reject your sexual advances!

    09/Apr/2017 // 2299 Viewers

     

    If your Tinder game is on point and your chat’s even better you may be puzzled as to why you can’t score a second date. While some people will simply decide they don’t feel a spark, others will have been turned off by something more specific.

    A new survey by the Daily Star Online asked readers “What is your biggest turn off in a man?” and the answers might suprise you. A whopping 35% said a man who smells bad is their biggest turn off.

    Founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, a dating site for people looking for an affair, Sigurd Vedal said that smell is something you can easily control.

    He added, “There’s no doubt that the scent of a lover is a strong emotional and s*xual trigger – years after an affair has ended, you never forget how delicious they smelled.

    “You can’t really control how you look, but you can control how you smell – and that’s a huge win, as we’ve revealed what the preference is for men and women across the globe.”

    Having an arrogant personality came in second with 22% of respondents revealing they preferred men who were kind.

    And while prior research has shown women don’t care about the size of a man’s man-hood, our survey revealed 20% of women would be put off if a man had a small schlong.

    The survey, of 804 women, also found that 14% would be turned off by someone who is bad in bed and 9% would be repulsed by wonky teeth.

    Recent research shows women think people should wait until the third date to sleep with someone new, while men think it’s fine to have s*x on the first date.

  • Jay Z just released his first single in years and you can listen to it right here

    09/Jul/2016 // 900 Viewers

     

    Jay Z says "spiritual" is a work in progress that he never quite had the time to finish, but the track was released anyway late on Thursday night for good reason. The song, which marks the first new single the famed rapper has released in years, discusses what it's like to be a black person in America right now. It's particularly poignant in light of the recent killings of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and, sadly, many more. The release also comes on the same evening as the horrific shooting of 11 police officers who took sniper fire while guarding a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas, TX.



    Jay Z released the following text alongside the new single:

    I made this song a while ago, I never got to finish it.
    Punch (TDE) told me I should drop it when Mike Brown died, sadly I told him, “this issue will always be relevant.” I’m hurt that I knew his death wouldn’t be the last......
    I’m saddened and disappointed in THIS America - we should be further along.
    WE ARE NOT.
    I trust God and know everything that happens is for our greatest good, but man.... it’s tough right now.
    Blessings to all the families that have lost loved ones to police brutality.

    The new song is available to stream exclusively on Tidal, of which Jay Z is part owner, and its artwork is a black square. You'll find the track embedded below in its entirety. If the embedded player fails (which it will, because WordPress) you can stream it right here.

  • BREAKING: Popular and pretty Nollywood actress says she's single, searching for husband! [See photo]

    09/Jul/2016 // 1033 Viewers

     

    Popular Nollywood actress officially breaks the silence surrounding her love life and exclusively tells THISDAY  ‘Entertainment File’ that she is single and searching. She also talks about what to expect from her new movie “Memory Lane” and more in this chat with Akpor Gbemre.

    Ruth Kadiri is popular for her role in “Matters Arising”, “Heart of a Fighter”, “Circle of Trust”, “Boys Cot”, among others. She runs a charity organisation called Ruth Kadiri Foundation, which reaches out to orphans and less privileged kids

    Tell us more about your new movie “Memory Lane”?
    “Memory Lane” talks about the story of unequal love within families and there is a lot of morals to be learnt from it. A family is thrown into chaos when the head of the family dies and the children are left feeling they’ve been deprived of true love by the other.

    How long have you been acting and at what point did you decide to go into movie production?
    I have been in the industry since 2006. I started as a script writer which later paved way for me to be on the screen. I started producing in 2013. It always gets to a point when you know you have what it takes to move to the next level, that point was three years ago. I took the chance and it has been worth it.


     
    How does it feel to be a ‘big fish’ in Nollywood?
    I won’t consider myself a big fish just yet, I work hard every day and I’m glad at the height I have attained so far.

    Is Nollywood truly the second biggest movie industry after Hollywood?  What’s your take on this rating?
    It depends on the angle you view it from. Rating the industry is done in different aspect of the industry, but overall I think we are the third largest industry which isn’t a bad thing. What’s encouraging and inspiring is that, the Nollywood of today is certainly not the Nollywood of few years back. The quality of production and the level of technicalities involved in Nollywood of today is certainly way higher than it used to be, and the level of distribution and showcase have reached an appreciable level going by the set standards at the cinemas, online promotions, marketing and distribution, brand investment and recognition, even actors recognition in light of endorsement deals and campaign strategies. I will certainly say we are walking our way up even faster in a positive light.

    Do you see yourself doing some Hollywood production in future?
    Well, by the grace of God, everyone aspires to be big. I didn’t see myself where I am today few years back and I pray everyday to find myself even in a better place in the future. So being on the big screens of Hollywood is a reality I am positive about. It will happen someday by God’s grace.

    How do you unwind and where’s your favorite vacation spot ?
    (Laughs) Well, when I’m not working, I just relax or watch a movie with  my friends. I really don’t have a particular vacation spot, where my heart finds joy is where I relax. If I have a man who wants to go to Kenya for fun, he is the essence of the fun not the location.

    Who are your favorite Nollywood and Hollywood personalities?
    In Nollyood, Genevieve Nnaji and Omotola Jalade Ekehinde. In Hollywood, I love Melissa McCarty and Kevin Hart. They are really good at what they do and I look forward to working with them some day.

    How do you cope with all the advances from male and female fans considering the fact that you are a sexy lady?
    Well, I just strike a balance all the time. I am not a loose girl. I am someone who really likes her privacy but still tries to keep the balance.

    Are you presently in a relationship?
    No, I am not. I was in a relationship but not anymore, and I thank God I’m out of it. So right now, I am single and searching.

    When you say you thank God you are out of a relationship, what do you mean?
    Can we not talk about it please? (Laughs)

    Ruth Kadiri

    Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years ?
    I see Ruth Kadiri as a big brand. I see fulfillment all around  me and I see me being strong enough to handle situations I cant handle today.

    What’s your advice to young people out there who want to be a Nollywood star like you?
    Go for it. A lot of people will try to discourage and bring you down but be strong and focus… Everything good doesn’t come easy.

  • From playboy to president: Trump's past crude sex talk collides with White House bid

    10/May/2016 // 770 Viewers

     


    Over 15 years, radio shock jock Howard Stern and his buddy Donald Trump periodically carried on like towel-snapping "bros" in a locker room, rating women's tops and bottoms, debating whether oral sex is "important," and egging each other on about whether they would like to go to bed with a number of people, from Cindy Crawford to Diane Sawyer.

    "You could've gotten her, right?" Stern asked Trump on-air shortly after Princess Diana's death in 1997. "You could've nailed her."

    "I think I could have," Trump said.

    How about singer Mariah Carey? "Would you bang her?" Stern asked. Trump replied, "I would do it without hesitation."

    Trump's crude talk on-air with Stern between 1990 and 2005 was part of an image he cultivated as a Manhattan playboy who had so many women that he barely had time to sleep. He was often seen at trendy nightclubs with different women, appeared on the cover of Playboy magazine, wrote in his books about all the women chasing him and publicly boasted about his sex life.

    That reputation was useful as Trump, in his 40s and 50s, built a brand designed to equate his name with success and the high life. But it is problematic as Trump, 69, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, tries to wash away his tabloid past and fashion a more dignified persona – as a potential commander in chief and leader of the free world.

    Although Trump promises to be "more presidential," his past statements have contributed to high negative ratings from women. Democrats have signaled they will make Trump's history a centerpiece of their campaign against him and other Republicans this fall.

    Trump's exchanges with Stern, many of which BuzzFeed posted online earlier this year, are featured in a new ad by the Democratic candidate in the U.S. Senate race in Arkansas.

    The contrast between Trump's past and present behavior underscores the extent to which he has shaped and reshaped his identity as he has moved between business, entertainment and politics. And it points to a fundamental question about his candidacy: Which version of Trump might America send to the Oval Office?

    "Defining Donald Trump will be one of the real challenges of this campaign," said Ed Rollins, a veteran GOP consultant who last week began working for a pro-Trump super PAC. "Ten or 20 years ago, Trump was a rogue character . . . a younger version of Hugh Hefner. Today he is a seen as a successful businessman and a celebrity and a good father."

    Trump, in an interview, played down the significance of some of his past behavior.

    "I never anticipated running for office or being a politician, so I could have fun with Howard on the radio and everyone would love it. People do love it," Trump said, sitting behind his Trump Tower desk piled with magazines featuring his face on the cover. "I could say whatever I wanted when I was an entrepreneur, a business guy."

    Trump also said his work was so "all-consuming" that he could not have been the libidinous playboy portrayed in the media.

    "People may be surprised that my life is much simpler than they thought," said Trump, with a Diet Coke in a plastic cup on his desk. "And they may be surprised that my life is much less glamorous than they thought, including every story about a supermodel."

    Trump said the media coverage of his personal life was "overblown."

    But it is clear that Trump played a role in shaping public perceptions.

    He wrote in his best-selling books that a parade of famous women wanted to date him. In his 1997 "Art of the Comeback," he wrote, "If I told the real stories of my experiences with women, often seemingly very happily married and important women, this book would be a guaranteed best-seller (which it will be anyway!)." He also wrote in that book about being "linked to dozens of other women. . . . It was incredible, being intimately associated with women I had never heard of. Women themselves - some very famous - were linking themselves to me. I guess they wanted some of the publicity. They were calling. Their agents were calling. It was a circus! It was sick!"

    After his public split with his first wife, Ivana, in 1990, Trump often got more media attention for his dates than his deals. From then until 2005, when he married his third and current wife, Melania Knauss, Trump's social life was a tabloid staple. During that time, he had a second tumultuous marriage, to beauty contestant Marla Maples, who was quoted on the cover of the New York Post as saying about Trump: "Best Sex I Ever Had."

    In between his marriages, a string of celebrities, including Madonna and Kim Basinger, were reported to have been chasing Trump - these women denied that, though. The rumors, even if not true, along with a string of women whom Trump showed up with at high-profile events, left the impression that he was a man about town.

    All of the attention differentiated Trump from other wealthy real estate developers. And Trump reveled in it, according to several longtime associates. Those people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Trump made a point of surrounding himself with young, attractive women. When he threw parties at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla., they said, Trump got his friends at modeling agencies to send women who floated around his pool and piled into his limousine.

    After he bought the Miss Universe pageant in 1996, Trump was seen by a national TV audience in a sea of contestants in bathing suits and high heels.

    "There's 100 beautiful women and 10 guys. Look, how cool are we?" said Roger Stone, a political adviser who has known Trump for decades, recalling the Palm Beach parties. "I was happy to be invited. I mean it was great."

    Trump's own comments focused attention on his libido, not just his skyscrapers.

    When asked by Playboy magazine in 2004 about Viagra, Trump boasted: "I just have never needed it." He went on to say that what he really needed was an "anti-Viagra, something with the opposite effect."

    "I'm not bragging," he bragged. "I'm just lucky."

    Trump's rise as a figure in popular culture helped propel him from business into television stardom when, in 2004, he debuted in his NBC reality show, "The Apprentice." During one season of the show, Trump drove up to Hefner's mansion in a limousine and was on TV surrounded by Playboy bunnies wearing pink ears and little else.

    Some of Trump's most raw language came during his appearances with Stern, when the two would critique women's looks.

    The BuzzFeed list included one clip in which Trump said: "Her boob job is terrible. They look like two light posts coming out of a body." In another clip, Trump said, "A person who is very flat-chested is very hard to be a 10."

    Stern had a huge national audience and made a name for himself with off-color questions, like this one, to Trump: "Is oral sex important to you? Man to man, and I've had this discussion with many men."

    Trump responded, "No, it's not important to me."

    In his recent interview with The Washington Post, Trump said he and Stern "had great moments" on the air, but he acknowledged he would not have said certain things had he known then that he would eventually be running for office. "Or I wouldn't have gone on the show because that is the easier way of doing it," Trump said.

    Trump said Stern is a good friend, "a really good guy and a very different guy when you take the radio microphone away." Stern declined to comment.

    With the Republican nomination in his grasp, Trump has projected a more familiar image for a possible president - that of a family man.

    His children, particularly the older ones, are constantly with him on the campaign trail and speak out on his behalf. His daughter Ivanka, 34, an executive vice president of the Trump Organization, is the star of many ads aired across the country in which she says her father told her that she could do anything - same as her brothers - if she worked hard.

    Candidate Trump recently sold the Miss Universe pageant.

    Trump told The Post that his record of promoting women to high-level positions in his business is more relevant than any past comment.

    "I greatly respect women," Trump said.

    Asked whether he is obsessed by women's looks given the frequent comments he makes about them, Trump said, "Much less so than people would think."

    Some who knew Trump in the 1990s say he was not an overheated Casanova. Rather, he was a workaholic aware of the value of being perceived as such.

    "I never heard him speak romantically about a woman," said Trump's former attorney Jay Goldberg, who was often by his side during those years. "I heard him speak romantically about his work."

    "Give him a Hershey's bar and let him watch television," Goldberg said. "I only remember him finishing the day [by] going home, not necessarily with a woman but with a bag of candy . . . not Godiva, just something from the newsstand."

    Kate Bohner, co-author of "The Art of the Comeback," said, "There were times when I'd see him chatting up a bevy of gorgeous creatures, and I can see how an outsider might think he was in it to win it, so to speak. But never did I feel that it was anything other than part of his shtick to fuel the Trump brand. I saw Mr. Trump being more paternal toward women than playboy."

    Peter Osnos, who edited Trump's 1987 "The Art of the Deal," said that Trump "cultivated celebrity" but that "his lifestyle was surprisingly unglamorous."

    "He's quite disciplined in some ways," Osnos said. "Doesn't smoke, doesn't drink."

    Trump's effort to adjust his image was apparent in the fall, when, as a candidate, he appeared again on the air with his old pal Stern.

    The radio host brought up Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly. She had just asked Trump during a presidential debate about all of the negative words he used to describe women over the years, including "fat pigs," "dogs" and "slobs."

    Stern seemed ready to relive the old days with his friend, baiting Trump to rate Kelly's looks.

    "What is she on a scale of 1 to 10?" Stern asked.

    But playboy Trump had left the room. The question, instead, was handled by candidate Trump.

    "In the old days," he said, "I wouldn't have minded answering that question. Today, I will take a pass." - Washington Post

    Kemi Lawal

    Once upon a time, these ladies enjoyed the comfort of matrimony. But for reasons best known to them, they became single again. Many years after, they are yet to find soul mates who will restore them to their former positions. Here are some of the most celebrated of the lot:

    - Biola Otufale

    Biola Otufale is an epitome of beauty. Her striking looks and alluring physique is one that gives her away easily. You can't miss her in a crowd. 

    Her charm however failed to prevent her crashed marriage. She used to be married to an Ijebu born chief, Otunba Kayode Otufale.

    - Nikki Khiran

    One of Lagos finest fashion designers, Nikki Khiran is a testimony in beauty. Well endowed, the amiable woman is one of several known faces who are enjoying spinsterhood again.

    - Enitan Bamigboye

    Yet another pretty face, Enitan Bamigboye used to be married to former military administrator, Colonel Theophilus Bamigboye. The marriage which was assumed to be made-in-heaven, lasted a few years before the duo went their separate ways; to the consternation of those privy to the union.

    - Adaobi Nwakuche

    Adaobi Nwakuche's wedding to Fred Nwaeme was characterised by fanfare. A no-expense-spared celebration, it had all the trappings of glamour and was discussed openly long after it was hosted. 

    The marriage suffered several hiccups that led to its eventual demise barely three years after it was first contracted. While the latter has remarried, the former is still savouring the gains of spinsterhood.

    - Bobby Taylor

    Not many people know that American returnee and public relations expert, Bobby Taylor, used to be married. A mother of one, the vivacious entrepreneur is single and not searching. 

    Already an item with Gogo Karibi-Whyte, who was widowed some years ago, there are indications that the duo are considering tying the knots again, judging by amount of time they spend together.

     - Rosemary Okeke

    A former beauty queen, Rosemary Okeke remains one of Nigeria's most popular former beauty queens. Already in her 40s, Okeke used to be married to Adekunle Wright. 

    The union, which produced a child, hit the rocks after efforts to salvage it did not yield fruit. Efforts to contract a second marriage has not yielded much.

    - Biola Okoya

    Beautiful and stylish, Biola Okoya is the most celebrated daughter of Alhaji Rasaq Okoya of the Eleganza fame. 

    Previously married to Akinwande Johnson, not only is Okoya yet to remarry many years after her first marriage ended, she has also shunned the limelight for up to three years, which has raised eyebrows.

    - Deola Sagoe

    Another gifted designer, Deola Sagoe, is one of Nigeria's finest creative minds. A wave making clothier, her immense talents failed to come in handy when it mattered most. A lot of people received with shock the crisis that rocked her union with Kofi Sagoe. 

    While it is not known if the union has been officially annulled by the court of law, the duo, however do not co-habit again.

    - Funke Kuti

    No one envisaged that Funke Kuti, the estranged wife of Afro beat prince, Femi Kuti, would one day have a crashed marriage. A former dancer in his band, all was well, or so it seemed, until the cracks in their union became visible. 

    The duo have lived apart for several years and are currently in court seeking dissolution of their marriage.

    - Gbemisola Saraki

    A governorship candidate in Kwara State at the last election, Gbemisola Saraki is the daughter of Dr Olusola Saraki. A mother of three, she used to be married to Segun Fowora. The marriage ended more than five years ago and she has remained single ever since.

    - Edith Jibunoh

    One of the daughters of Dr Newton Jibunoh, Edith Jibunoh's marriage to Stan Rerri was short-lived to the utmost surprise of many who witnessed it. The couple parted ways less than a year after the wedding was contracted and Rerri is reported to have found his missing 

    rib yet again.

  • I never believed I would be anything in life - Mr Ibu

    11/Mar/2017 // 347 Viewers

     

    John Okafor, popularly known as Mr. Ibu is very popular in the movie industry. Having acted in numerous movies, his style of hilarious acting has endeared him to many having started behind the camera as a continuity manager. Not many know that he was once a hairdresser and boxer. In this chat with SAMUE ABULUDEL, the native of Enugu State who started his acting career decades ago, shares his pains and gains as an actor and as a fat.

    Are you lively at home?

    My children are even funnier. We play a lot like kids. The boy and small girl always ask me questions, while my wife too is funny.

    How would you describe your success story?

    I never believed I would be anything in life, but God has been there for me. I always advise people to be patient. If you are fasting and praying, and there is nothing to show for it, do not panic or rush to a native doctor. Everyone has a destination, but we have to be patient. My being here was prepared by God, though I went through a lot in my life too. I once trekked from Ajao Estate to Festac in Lagos. Do you know that there was a time I had prepared to kill myself? I wanted to jump inside the well, because of the situations around me. Three days before then, I had not eaten and there was no hope of getting food for the next one week. I was just drinking water and I hate it when I bother people. In Lagos, I had lived under a truck. I cleaned up the place neatly, used carton as my bed. Those people who were my close friends were not bothered about my situation. I left that spot when over 30 dogs were barking on a particular night. Nobody could sleep in that area and I had to run for my life. Later a friend, Frank, who was staying at 125 Adetola Street in Surulere at a time, called me to come stay in his house. He was travelling to Germany. He told me that I should leave anywhere I was staying in Lagos and come over to his house.
    I first declined the offer, telling him that I might serve as an inconvenience to him. I did not want to give him the impression that I was desperate, even though I needed where to stay. I went to bring my property from where I kept it outside; I told him I planned to travel before he called me. I was just telling lies. He later gave me a room in his flat.

    Despite your funny look, you’ve made a name in the industry. What works for you?

    It depends on the department you are working. When it comes to comedy, your look does not really count. All you need is to be able to interpret the character given to you. I have been stereotyped into comedy and everyone knows this, though it does not mean I cannot do other things. But how do my fans react to it if I play other roles? So, all I do now is acting comedy, talking comedy and singing comedy.

    Would you agree that your music career is dead?

    I am still doing music, but I lost a friend, Dede One Day. We were doing music together but he died at a programme he was hosting. Since I started my music life with him, it is just right to give him that respect. I have decided to take a year break to honour him.

    At what point did you become a hairdresser?
    That was before I came to Lagos. I used to be a boxer too when I was in Sapele in Delta State. I stopped fighting after I was seriously beaten in the ring. Being the heavyweight champion in my club, I confronted another heavyweight champion. You need to see how he dealt with me as if he was sent to kill me. Even though I was begging him, he did not stop and we were not fighting for any prize. I had to jump out of the ring, when I could not bear the beating the anymore.

    What pushed you into boxing since there was no money in it?
    It was just for the fun of it. I liked boxing then. I did all sorts of menial jobs. I was also a photographer at a time, they called us ‘wait and get.’ When I applied to work in a saloon, they gave me opportunities. Since I had learnt how to make hair before, it was easy for me to introduce different styles. California coil just came out then but I improved on it in that saloon. I introduced rough coil and a lot of other styles. I still create styles for my wife and she goes to the saloon to make them.

    Why have you not opened a beauty business since you know about it?
    Beauty business! Do I look good? I am now married and my wife can go into it. I opened that for her but when I moved out of Satellite Town to my house in Lekki, Lagos, she stopped. She will continue the same business.

    How have you been able to move on easily considering that you lost your father and five members of your family almost at the same time to poison and you also lost a son 6 years ago?

    The most painful one was my son’s death. When my wife, two of my in-laws and my son were kidnapped in Enugu, they stayed 10 days in the bush. They were later released after I settled the kidnappers. But there was this acute pneumonia that struck my son and gave him liver inflammation. I took him to the hospital, Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) but the carelessness of the people at the Department of Pediatrics was a major reason he died. They needed blood and luckily for me one of my boys could donate. They said I was under tension, so they could not take from me. They collected two pints of blood even though they needed one.  Before they could use the blood on him, they said they needed to do a screening and they started given different excuses until it became late. They told me there was no light and they needed to get approval from the head of department, among others. A nurse later advised me to have the screening done outside before it was too late. I still needed to write application to that same department, which I did. He took the application upstairs but as we were coming down after all sorts of delay, I saw that the head nurse’s face had changed. I asked what the matter was and she told me I should not run around again. She said if the blood had come in 5 minutes ago, we would have saved him. My biggest problem was how to console my wife and what to tell her. I left LUTH without her and asked them to bring her to Villa Park at FESTAC, Lagos. When she saw me, she was furious and kept asking about her son. I tried to hide the news. I tried to hold myself together as a man, but tears dropped. That was enough for her and she was flat on the ground. It took the help of people around to hold her down before she inflicted more injuries on herself.

    Was there an apology at the hospital after the unfortunate incidence?
    When we went to LUTH to collect his body the next morning, the head, Pediatrics, called me.  Apparently he had been looking for me since the day my son died and he wanted a favour. He told me that they needed my son’s body to teach other young doctors. I looked around and I saw that there was no one. I told him that if he had told me this yesterday (the day he died), he would have regretted the day he was born. I just concluded that they cared less because they wanted the body for studies. I deliberately left the body there that day too and gave a word that if there was any cut on my son, I would burn the hospital and kill myself.

    How did you console your wife?

    I told her to always look at my face. I tried to laugh even when situation was tough for me. I reminded her of how beautiful she was and that she could still have plenty children. She believed me, she actually made four children but two died.

    Why do you always put your wife on social media?

    My mother told me a lot of things and it was an orientation that I got from her. She told me that women should be respected. I am one who respects women so much. It is a sin to beat women and I have never tried it. There is this connectivity between a man and woman; they are connected to us spiritually. When you beat a woman, you beat your joy, peace, success and business. You should always praise your wife; buy things to make her happy, because her happiness grows your business.

    How did you meet your wife?

    The situation we found ourselves in brought us together. She had a boyfriend and I knew, but they had an issue. There was a message the guy sent to her and she cried for two days. It stated, “Never you ever call my number or come close to me either outside or in my home. If you try it, I would leave a mark on you.” When she showed me the message, I told her that I would replace him and do even better. We then met somewhere in Port Harcourt; she knew I was coming and wanted to see me. Since it was late, she could not go home; she had to spend the night with me. Do you know that they do not leave yam and goat in a place? That was how she got pregnant.

    How do you deal with temptation from other women?

    The issue of replacement is impossible, because my wife is still there. I can always be friends with women, but I am mature enough to know where to draw.

    PARIS, APRIL 12, 2017: (DGW) Igbo Actors Development Association  (IGADO) members have called on the Federal Government to release without delay the detained IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

    The release of Kanu, the body says is long overdue and asked the Federal Government an option of dialogue instead of the continued detention which its says is an infringement on Kanu's rights.

    According to the body, “IGADO is solidly behind the call for the release of  Nnamdi Kanu. We are giving the Federal Government options of dialogue instead of continued infringement on the rights of the freedom fighter.

    “It is unacceptable and unreasonable to keep somebody beyond the required time limit and deprive him of his cherished freedom in a government that is operating democracy,” the group said.
