Nigerian Catholic priest suspended for allegedly raping American woman

The Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh in the United States has suspended Nigerian priest Cyprian Duru from ministering, after accusation of rape and legal action by a 68 year-old retired English teacher, Kathy Coll.

In addition, he has been banned from presenting himself as a priest or wearing clerical garb.
According to CBS Television, Coll in a legal suit, detailed how Duru stopped by her home in December 2016 on the pretence of giving her a Christmas card and allegedly raped her.

Coll claimed that when she offered him a cold drink, he followed her to her family room, overpowered her and assaulted her as she screamed for him to stop.
Since then, Coll claimed she has been trying to seek healing from the trauma of rape; adding that the shame, anxiety and depression were daunting.

“The hardest part was telling my pastor, who sat and cried with me and then notified the diocese,” Coll recalled.

Last week, she filed a suit against the St. Teresa of Avila Roman Catholic Church, the Pittsburgh diocese, and Bishop David Zubik.

Coll maintained that she was disappointed that District Attorney Stephen Zappala’s office said prosecutors lacked sufficient evidence to pursue charges.

But the retired high school English teacher said her biggest disappointment was learning that a church she continues to love and turned to for help had scant resources for abused women.

“There were visits by the (Pittsburgh) Diocese Trauma Team to my house offering prayer and help to find a therapist. But I found out they really don’t have anything for women who have been abused,” Coll said.

Coll said a therapist the diocese recommended within minutes of meeting her declared that she was depressed, anxious and suffering from PTSD.

“He said, ‘We’ll get you on medication and four or five sessions here, and you’ll be on your way.’ I walked out of there after 20 minutes and never went back,” she said.

Eventually, she found a therapist who helped her marshal her strength.
As she regained her footing in the world, the widowed mother of two adult sons resolved to doing something to help others.

Horror: 14 lions escape zoo in South Africa

(CNN)South African officials warned residents to beware of 14 lions that might have escaped from a national park Thursday.

The pride fled from Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s largest game reserves at over 7,500-plus square feet, and were spotted in the town of Phalaborwa near a mine, local officials said.

In a tweet, the province of Limpopo’s government urged mineworkers and residents to stay alert. Once (and if) they’re captured by authorities, they’ll be released back in the reserve.

Around 2,000 lions live in Kruger National Park, and it’s unclear how the 14 might have crept out. The sprawling park is fenced in along the boundary between Limpopo and the wildlife.

A leopard killed a two-year-old boy in the park Tuesday. He was the son of one of the park’s staffers. A ranger later found and killed the animal.

Then in April, all that was left of a suspected rhino poacher were his skull and shorts after he was trampled by an elephant and then eaten by lions.

He was accused of killing Elizabeth Shelley, 5, on May 25 after the child’s mother – his sister let him spend the night at the family home.

The Cache County Attorney’s Office said new evidence recovered by the Utah State Crime Lab led prosecutors to charge Alex with rape of a child in the first degree and sodomy upon a child in the first degree in connection to the murder of Elizabeth “Lizzy” Shelley.

Lizzy was first reported missing by her mother on the morning of May 25. Lizzy’s mother also reported her brother, Whipple, missing. He had reportedly slept on the couch the previous night after drinking with his sister and her boyfriend but wasn’t found by morning.

Whipple was taken into custody several days later and, on May 29, after giving police directions on how to find Lizzy’s remains in exchange for immunity from the death penalty, officials recovered the body of the missing girl just a block away from her home in Logan, Utah. The body was found under trees and brush.

Whipple was previously charged with aggravated murder, kidnapping, obstruction of justice and abuse of desecration of a human body.

Must read: Rihanna finally emerges richest female musician in the world.

Singer, makeup entrepreneur, lingerie designer and now the first black woman to head a top luxury fashion house — Rihanna has racked up a $600 million fortune to become the world’s richest female musician, Forbes said Tuesday.

source : punch entertainment

The 31-year-old — born Robyn Rihanna Fenty in Barbados — has amassed wealth exceeding that of Madonna ($570 million), Celine Dion ($450 million) and Beyonce ($400 million), whose husband Jay-Z was just named the world’s first billionaire rap star.

Rihanna’s ranking puts into fresh perspective one of her signature lyrics — “work, work, work, work, work,” which opened her 2016 dancehall smash “Work.”

Since bursting onto the scene in 2003, she has spun her triumphs in music into entrepreneurial gold, launching her makeup brand Fenty Beauty — co-owned by French luxury giant LVMH — in September 2017 online and with Sephora.

The line found success not least thanks to Rihanna’s fame both on and offline, with some $570 million in revenue last year after just 15 months of business.

She makes the majority of her money from touring and musical releases, according to Forbes , but also co-owns her Savage X Fenty lingerie line.

In May, Rihanna launched a groundbreaking partnership with LVMH to launch a luxury fashion brand based in Paris that will make ready-to-wear clothes, shoes and accessories.

A new large-scale luxury label — especially one led by a black woman — is a huge development in the fashion world, with Rihanna’s line Fenty sitting alongside legacy brands like Dior, Louis Vuitton, Fendi and Givenchy at the conglomerate headed by Bernard Arnault.

“It is about turning all of that into something luxurious for this fashion house.”

The singer’s explosive rise to music mega-star and global fashion icon did not come without tribulations, including her father’s bids to profit off her name and a highly publicized domestic violence case that saw her then-boyfriend Chris Brown charged in 2009 with assaulting her.

In addition to her venture into luxury fashion, Rihanna has hinted at dropping a new reggae album this year.

“I never thought I’d make this much money, so a number is not going to stop me from working,” she told The New York Times’ T Magazine in May.

“Money is happening along the way, but I’m working out of what I love to do, what I’m passionate about.”

” I have no regrets killing him”angry husband replies.

Disaster struck in Niger state after an aggrieved husband killed his neighbor after the latter kept making advances at his wife.

The 21-year-old man, Umar Audu, has been arrested by men of the Niger state police command for allegedly killing his neighbour Abubakar Mohammadu of the Fulani Camp, Wawa village in New-Bussa, Borgu Local Government Area of the state, for making advances at his wife, Hassan Audu.

According to police sources, trouble started when Audu’s wife, Hassan, complained to him that Mohammed who is a neighbor and resides in their compound, was asking her to have sex with him despite the fact that he knows she is married. Audu confronted Mohammed and warned him several times to leave his wife alone.

Things came to a halt recently when Audu attacked Mohammed with a machete, inflicting deep cuts on his head which led to his death.

When interrogated, Audu says he doesn’t regret killing Mohammed.

“I don’t regret killing him because Mohammadu decided to die like a chicken. In his next life, he will not make advances to married women. I am ready to bear the consequences. Let the law take its course. I am fulfilled that Mohammadu will never see my wife again, Allah will judge him.” Audu said

Audu is currently in police custody and will be charged to court soon.
