Panic as lion escapes from Kano Zoo last night

There was panic on Saturday night around Zoo road in Kano metropolis when a lion escaped from its cage at the Kano Zoological garden.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the incident happened around 9 p.m. when the rangers were trying to put it back to its cage after they returned it from the national agricultural show which took place in Nasarawa state.

A source at the zoological garden told NAN that effort was being made to capture the animal which was still within the zoo premises.


Malam Rabiu Lawal, a resident of Zoo Road, said he had locked up his house until announcement was made of the capture of the lion.

”My entire family members will be indoors even if it will take one month to recover the lion. I have not experienced this kind of fear since I packed into this area more than 15 years,” he said.

Residents of the area were said to have gone indoors earlier than usual to avoid the consequences of an encounter with the loose lion.

Armed policemen have been deployed to the area while a search team was trying to capture the lion.

He Couldn’t Take his Eyes off Her When They Met! Bukola & Ayobami’s Pre-wedding Shoot + Love Story

Bukola and Ayobami‘s path collided on at a mutual friend’s birthday. In Bukola’s words, he couldn’t take his eyes off her and eventually offered to give her a ride home. Right from that point, their love story kicked off and then a couple of years after, Ayobami popped the question a few days before his sister’s wedding.

Keep scrolling to read the #BamBu2019 love story.

How We Met
By the bride, Bukola:

We met in 2017 when I was invited to a birthday party by one of my close friends (Oyin). He was also invited by a mutual friend. As the party went on, I could feel someone looking at me, that person was Ayobami. He couldn’t take his eyes off me (literally). He kept sending his friends to make sure I was okay. I eventually left the party earlier than expected. So he followed me outside and insisted he gave me a lift home. After much persuasion and reassurance from mutual friends, I agreed and the rest is history.

Since that very day, we’ve been joint at the hip. He has been my rock. He is the most loving, kindest, sweetest and God-fearing man. We have been through so much and I’m so excited to see what the future holds. We are really about to start the rest of our lives together.

Our Proposal Story
By the bride, Bukola

So it happened that I was flying to Lagos for Bam Bam’s sister’s wedding. From the moment I landed, he insisted that we take his sister and husband to dinner. I was a bit reluctant because I was tired from the flight but I agreed to go. He picked me up from the airport and I noticed he was driving extremely fast and was anxious. He took me home and told me to put on makeup, which was weird because he knows I waste time with my makeup. We got into the car with his sister and her husband and he began speeding down the highway. He initially said we were going for dinner but we ended up going to IMAX Lekki. I got out of the car and walked inside and saw that he had already purchased the tickets which was weird and extremely unlike him because we hadn’t agreed on a movie.

As we were walking towards the cinema screen, I kept asking what movie we were going to watch but he wasn’t answering me. I walked in and BOOM, it happened; roses, flowers and my loved ones everywhere. I was shocked and never thought he could pull off a surprise but he sure did. He got down on one knee and I could see he was nervous. The ring was so stunning, I couldn’t help but say yes! Everything about the night was perfect, he made a video of all my loved ones, colleagues and friends who couldn’t make it. I said yes then, I say yes now and I say yes forever.

Nigeria may break up, says Yoruba leader, Akintoye

Yoruba leader, Prof Banji Akintoye on Saturday likened Nigerian nation to a country under the reign of an empire, which must crumble and break up.

Akintoye said like other artificially created empires across the globe that have become history, Nigeria is a time bomb, which might soon explode unless equity, justice and fair play reign supreme in the land.

Akintoye spoke in Ibadan on Saturday during a programme on Fresh 105.9 FM monitored by Punch. 

He said, “Some foreign powers came and created an empire and gathered a number of nationalities together and gave them a single government. Nigeria is an empire comprising many nationalities. In the history of the world, every empire breaks up and the nationalities remain.


“It is not about Nigeria alone. It is a fundamental universal world experience that empires combine many nationalities and rule over them and then the empire breaks up. So, it is to be expected that a country like Nigeria will some day break up,” he said.

Akintoye, who has taught History in universities in Nigeria and the United States and became a senator in the Second Republic, however, gave conditions that could forestall the breakup of the country.

He called on the Hausa/Fulani to give up the attitude that they own Nigeria and must continue to rule it.

“From modern perspective of governance and interrelationships, we can do things that can make Nigeria survive for a long time. Number one, we must get the people who believe that they have the right to conquer and subdue the rest of Nigeria.

“We must ask them to give up, repudiate and stop all of that disaster. They must return to civil relationship among other people of Nigeria. If they continue to act like they own the country, they will only speed up the breaking up of the country.  They say Nigeria is theirs, that Allah has given it to them.

“There is no way Nigeria can continue as long as this type of agenda and ambition exists among us. The first thing is to demand of our Fulani brethren that they must repudiate the agenda,” he said.

Our Samsung Galaxy A60 video review is up

The Galaxy A60 that Samsung announced back in April has a complicated history, being practically identical to the Galaxy M40 and so far getting a limited market release. Still, it's part of the Korean company's ever-expanding and increasingly successful A-series so we were eager to see what it's all about. Hence, our in-depth review of it was born, but then we figured the A60 also deserves a video review of its own. The sweet and short video will walk you through everything that's interesting about the Galaxy A60, while obviously hitting upon the main features such as the screen, unlocking...

Jury recommends death sentence for ‘Hollywood Ripper’

A jury in California recommended the death sentence on Friday for a man dubbed the “Hollywood Ripper” who was earlier found guilty in the gruesome killings of two women at their homes.

Michael Gargiulo, 43, was convicted in August on two counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder by a Los Angeles jury.

A judge is set to sentence Gargiulo, also described as the “boy next door killer,” on February 28.

Among his victims was 22-year-old Ashley Ellerin, who was found in her Hollywood home with 47 stab wounds in February 2001. On the night of her murder, Ellerin had been due to go on a date with actor Ashton Kutcher, who testified at the trial.


The second murder victim was Maria Bruno, a 32-year-old mother of four and neighbor of Gargiulo who was attacked in her sleep in December 2005 and “quite literally butchered,” prosecutors said.A jury in California recommended the death sentence on Friday for a man dubbed the “Hollywood Ripper” who was earlier found guilty in the gruesome killings of two women at their homes.

Huawei MediaPad M7 renders show a metal tablet with slimmer bezels and optional stylus and keyboard

OK, to be fair, straight off the bat, the leaked MediaPad is clearly not an iPad clone. In fact, even though most people's first associating when seeing it might be one of Cupertino's current tablets, the look and feel of Samsung's Galaxy Tab S6 really isn't all that different. So, the correct way to describe what is allegedly going to be the MediaPad M7 and is design would definitely be trendy and contemporary. That, of course, means slim bezels and what looks to be a metal body. As per the original source of the leak, the device is internally know under the codename "Marx". But given...
